Pretty sure it's a good few years now. I remember always gently sinking to the bottom as I forgot to ever look at my team.

Last year I was right at the bottom, this year I spent a decent time in the top 10 and will probably finish 11th, which I can't really complain about as its a hell of a lot better than last year

Oh and if you remember Pedram from BOA 2013 (the iranian one that arrived late), he's on 1770 and is my main rival for that 30quid



so how many years has this league been going then? I've been on these boards since 2005 (fairly infrequently admittedly) but I've never seen it mentioned before.


This is either the 4th or 5th year, it's the 4th time I've done it (6th, 3rd, 8th the other times) but it may have ran one year before I started.

Differentials time bro.

E.g. I've stuck all my eggs in the Leicester basket for the final week. Got 3 of them in my defense at the moment.

Ooft. I went for variety, got 9 different teams in my first XI, and a Leicester defender on the bench. Also we do both have a chance of catching Mike if he has a naff week.

Guesses on how much Kane's gonna cost next year? He was 4.8mn a few weeks in this year, gotta start for at leas 8mn next year I'm guessing.


Also, what the flying fuck. Check out this week's top scorer. He has -462pts in total, the fuck is going on there?

Yeah probably around there. His cooling off towards the end will drop it a little bit. I reckon it depends how he does in the U21 euros as well. If he beasts them, we could be looking at 9 mill or something.

Over 8.5 and I'm leaving him out :P

I'll wait a game or two to see his form. He's played nearly 50 games this season, and won't get a proper summer break. Could easily burn out next season.

Also, on your edit, I love that -462 doesn't actually put him bottom. There's like 12k people with worse points.

"Hm, been a rough week last week, time to make 148 transfers"

Can't tell if intentionally trying to get to the bottom, or just didn't understand the rules...

Kept a low profile on this thread so as to not scupper my chances and was more nervous going into the final few weeks for my Fantasy Football team as to my real one!

Anyway only one way to go now and that's downhill!

But all in all totally agree: BRING ON NEXT SEASON :)

Squeezed my way up to 12th.

Wished I hadn't made so many stupid transfers over Christmas, I'd be like 6/7th about now.

Bring on next season. Wanna make it into the top 50k.

16th, I'll happily take that.

On another note, I have no fucking clue who half the people in the league are.
