    Mad old game FPL. This season i've found to be a roller-coaster, hard-to-get-3-green-arrows-in-a-row kind of season. But we all know what we sign up for. I believe there's something to be said for sticking at it, taking the hits (metaphorical and points-based ones) and to just keep chugging along... Alas we arrive at the last gameweek of the season. And even if we suffer a gameweek ranking blow, let's revel in the absurdity of it all. I dedicate this one to Zarquon

    Oh no you didn't OP!

    There's always one.

    :p

    Does this mean I have to disclose my team now?

    God no! That stuff is ALWAYS voluntary!

    But since i've gone beyond caring about this season any more, here's mine: :p

    BB(-12)
    Fabianski Hennessey
    Mawson Robertson Masuaku Bauer Lowton
    Salah Mané Son Sterling Arnie
    Ayew Kane Jesus

    Not that my team is any threat either, but here it is...

    De Gea

    Davies Monreal Ogbonna
    -Willian Gudmundsson Son Salah(c)-
    Jesus-Kane-Ayew

    At this point, only hoping to finish the last GW with green arrows.

    -4.

    I’m about 30 points behind the league leader. Neither of us have Salah and I can’t see him being able to get him in. I have Kane, he has Aubamayang. A Kane hat-trick is probably the only thing that can rescue it for me, and I wouldn’t completely rule it out either.

    Romero
    Milner Verthongen Chambers
    Sterling Alli Arnautovic Shaqiri
    Kane (C) Jesus Vardy

    Won't be making my transfers until 1.45, hoping for the inside scoop.

    Although I just remembered as I type this that the site crashed just before the deadline on match day 38 last year.

    Very nervous today. Still plenty to play for in 3 money leagues. Resisting urge to take last minute points hits. Kick-off can’t come quickly enough.

    Happy Final Day to all :-)

    It's been a strange season....my 3rd year playing properly....will be my worst OR finish bit should win my main money league quite comfortably unless something bizarre happens today.

    Dubravka

    Vertonghen | Mawson | Long

    Salah (C) | Sane | Sterling | Zaha

    Ayew | Kane | Jesus

    Subs: DDG | McArthur | Cedric | Inanimate Carbon Rod Morgan

    Not sure whether to start Ayew or McArthur??? Are Swansea likely to put on some sort of a show for the fans??

    I'm 2nd in my work league by a point, but he's got Kane an Salah and I've got neither, not sure whether I should take a bit to get either one if them in? I don't think it does as my net score won't be better than his.

    My team :
    Ddg fabianski
    Zanka monreal Alonso dunk lascelles
    Sterling willian d.silva milijovevic kenedy
    Giroud PEA Jesus

    His team:
    McCarthy pope
    Alonso ogbonna dunk lowton Morgan
    Son arnie Gross Salah Fraser
    Barnes Jesus Kane

    Looking for advice please! I've got 1 free and 1.1m in the bank

    Your midfield is better but only if Silva plays! I'd try to bring in Salah for Silva if the news on the city team comes out in time.

    If Silva starts then concentrate on getting Kane into your team somehow. Can't see how you can do that without a - 4 though.

    What are arsenal fans expecting today.

    Wengers last game vs. Their atrocious away record in 2018.

    If I thought they had any fire in their belly at all I'd probably consider PEA or Ramsey

    Don’t think think I’ve ever been in a situation before where one prize has come down to last day never mind 3!!!!
    LMS standing vs scotchy 1st is 150 euro 2nd is 30
    Main work league first is out of sight. I’m currently second (110 euro ) 12 points clear of 3rd (80 euro ) who will be reverting to his kaneless team after free hit. He has got a crazy amount of clean sheets over the last 2 weeks to keep him in touch culminating with a triple cleanie Thursday night .
    And then ...........a free league with a brilliant prize . For top spot only . I’ve come from nowhere over the past month and now lie second by 10 points . Teams are quite different and he doesn’t have sterling or salah so the potential to win that is there .......

    I’ve one FT to make and it’s fairly straightforward as I’ve 2 players red flagged so one of them will go .
    2 decisions then to make
    Captain Salah or Kane ...........I’ve decided but not saying who ;)
    Start Jayew or whomever I sign . That’s a tough one . Swansea obviously need goals but their attacking play the last night was abysmal

    McCarthy
    Bavies Otamendi Mawson
    Sterling Martial Zaha Arnie
    Kane(c) Jesus Perez


    One last throw of the dice!


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,163 ✭✭✭✭ mdwexford

    Team is

    DDG
    Keane - Otamendi - Vertonghen - Ogbonna
    Zaha - Sterling - Gross - Pogba
    Kane - Jesus


    Ryan - Lowton - Lingard - Barnes

    I'm in second place in my mini league, 10 points behind the leader.
    He has Salah, Eriksen, Sane, Sterling, Kane and Jesus.

    I've only one transfer and have 0.6 in the bank.

    Can bring in Aubameyang for Jesus and take no hits.
    Could do that and Pogba to Arnie for a -4.

    Or is bringing in Salah essential and hope the others make up the 10 points?

    Aagggghhhhh!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    Foster
    Vertonghen Chambers Lejeune
    Sterling Sane Zaha Gudmunsson
    Kane(c) Jesus Giroud

    (Ryan - Ibe Duffy Mariappa)

    I'll be glad to see the end of this season, roll on fantasy world cup though!

    Dead level going into today. Salah captain today and I don't know if my Spurs supporting rival will stick with Kane or do the same. It's a last day thrillride but regardless of the outcome it's been a terrible season which I haven't enjoyed. I'll be thinking hard about whether I play again come August

    Any validity to the rumours that Son won't play?

    Sitting in a cafe in the Swiss Alps now, freezing. On a Motorbike trip. Trying desperately to get any last minute info on my phone. In a last man standing h2h with KM79. In with a shout in a few other leagues. Roll on.

    Mirror reporting Lallana starting for pool in place of Mane and rest of team as expected.

    Edit: can't afford him :(

    Some Korean paper said he was injured or carrying a knock since GW32 and likely to he rested today or something?

    DDG (Ryan)
    Vert Mustafi Tomkins (Lowton, Dummett)
    Salah (c) Sterling Arnie Martial (Diame)
    Kane Jesus Ayew

    16 points behind leader.
    He's no Salah or Kane yet.
    -4 for TAA or Lacazette?

    I'm tempted to just leave it.

    Think I'd leave it too. Salah could wipe out that lead on his own. Best of luck.

    Hazard has to start today right? I'm gambling on him over Salah to make up an 11 point lead in my mini league (have Firminho as Liverpool cover)
