    Another FPL season over, and an exciting end to this competition with Scorpion Sting coming out on top after a big scoring final gameweek. Fair play to all who made the top 4 places, the standard was fierce once more this season.

    Final Monthly LMS Table

    1. Scorpion Sting (TheresOnlyWanBissaka) = 312
    2. patmac (The Blood Crows) 295 - 8 = 287
    3. Lamper.sffc (LeedsFinallyBack) 290 - 4 = 286
    4. normanoffside (smugdrugglers) = 266

    Prize Payout
    1. Scorpion Sting (TheresOnlyWanBissaka) = 600 euros
    2. patmac (The Blood Crows) = 200 euros
    3. Lamper.sffc (LeedsFinallyBack) = 125 euros
    4. normanoffside (smugdrugglers) = 75 euros

    Any issues with the scores or payouts above, please let me know asap. I will get all winning monies transferred in the next day or so.

    Just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who has competed in this years Monthly LMS competition and also all the previous editions. Unfortunately, it looks like I won't have the time to run this come August as work will be taking up a lot more of my time. I'm hoping to still enter in most of the boards FPL leagues though as the FSA it really is a great community on here.

    On that note, if anyone wants to take the reigns in this competition or the Champions League style competition I ran going forward, feel free to just use the layouts as they are. I think the Monthly LMS has actually turned into a pretty good comp as well once the first eliminations don't take place too quickly, giving everyone a fair rattle at it!

    It's been great and appreciate how time consuming this must have been for you. Could maybe help someone out with running next year's, not sure how confident I would be organizing on my own.

    Appreciate all the effort. Thanks again.


    I was just delighted to be competing on the last day. Was good fun.

    McBain, cheers for running. I went out early this year but I’ll be back next year to try and regain my title


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,116 ✭✭✭ McBain11


    If Lamper.sffc spots this can you leave a note on this thread or PM with your paypal or Bank IBAN details. Cheers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,116 ✭✭✭ McBain11


    Lads, monies sent out to 3 of the 4 winners. Enjoy folks.

    If Lamper sees this send me a message with paypal or bank details. Have tried PM but no response.

    Message sent. Tks


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,116 ✭✭✭ McBain11


    All winning monies sent on. If there are any issues with monies not landing let me know lads.

    Enjoy the summer and a well earned rest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,767 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Are we going again?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,428 ✭✭✭ Lamper.sffc


    Id be up for it too. If someone is taking it over?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ Xander10


    Willing to run, if no one else interested. Can post up a thread later this week with first refusal for last year's players, if no objections.

    Played this the last couple of years and it would be a shame if not kept going. Should be just a case of replicating McBain's rules from last year.

    Fair play to you. Im definitely interested.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,767 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Sorry, I completely missed that McBain said he was out for next season.

    I’m happy to run this or the CL, thought they were both really good formats


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ Xander10


    I offered because no one else seemed available. Happy for you to run it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,116 ✭✭✭ McBain11


    Thanks to the lads if either of you are taking up the mantle of running the monthly lms.

    Count me in anyway once it's up and running.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,767 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    If you're happy enough to win this I'll run the champions league comp



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ Xander10


    I'd be very happy to win it😀 presume you meant run it!

    I will set up a new thread in the next few days. Site updates seems to be making things a bit more user friendly.

    Re comp, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" So I will pretty much C&P McBain's rules.

    Just a couple of observations re fixtures. There are 3 game weeks in August & only one game week in May. If we got the max of 20, I would propose the following, which will avoid 3 eliminations in any one month and a consistence 2 eliminations each month up to the final four shoot out as follows:

    August: 2 eliminations ( 3 game weeks, bit of a war of attrition, don't get off to a sleepy start)

    Sept: 2 eliminations

    Oct: 2 eliminations

    Nov: 2 eliminations

    Dec: 2 eliminations

    Jan: 2 eliminations

    Feb: 2 eliminations

    Mar: 2 eliminations

    Apr & May: last 4 fight it out for places 1,2,3,4 (5 game weeks in April & 1 game week in May combined. A good long test to sort the final placings and the ultimate champion).

    Any thoughts on above?

    Based on getting the 20 max. It's a good comp that McBain devised, so would be hopeful of getting 20 players.



  • Registered Users Posts: 42,031 ✭✭✭✭ Scorpion Sting


    There’s three gameweeks in May.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ Xander10


    Doh!

    can amend to 1 elimination in Aug & sept. And 2 eliminations Oct - April. Final four compete in May.



  • Registered Users Posts: 42,031 ✭✭✭✭ Scorpion Sting


    Why not just two eliminations at the end of September?



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,101 ✭✭✭ Xander10


    like I said, open to suggestions. that's an option ok. Can go when the main consensus.

    Think you're best going with first eliminations at the end of September. Whatever number of players eliminated at that point isn't that big an issue, but it's absolutely cut throat if people are eliminated at the end of August after only 3 gameweeks, especially when putting 50 euros in the pot.

    I think it was 3 years I ran this format, and only last year changed it away from first players eliminated after 2/3 gameweeks. Far fairer competition for it imo.


    You could essentially copy and paste most of the first few posts in this thread, tweak the numbers eliminated at the end of December, January etc based on number of fpl gameweeks in those months and you're set. I'd make sure to leave in any covid criteria etc I put in, because if things go wrong like in 19/20, it becomes a complete sh*tshow to sort out.

    Count me in for the champions League format.... Really enjoyed it last season....

    Agree that August is a tad early for eliminations, other than that I am looking forward to it ...



  • Registered Users Posts: 31,235 ✭✭✭✭ CSF


    Will be in for both the Champions League (defend the throne) and Monthly LMS for sure



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,955 ✭✭✭ klopparama


    I’m in.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,428 ✭✭✭ Lamper.sffc


    I'll be interested in both LMS and Champions league. Didn't try the Champions league one last year. Id like to give it a go, if its on.



  • Registered Users Posts: 42,031 ✭✭✭✭ Scorpion Sting


    Back in for both, cheers.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,897 ✭✭✭ AdpRo


    In for both again, thanks
