All that is left between them and the title is each other, and of course two gameweeks!
May it be an epic battle, and may the best man win!
What a difference a day makes. I sat watching the Spurs game and couldn’t live without Bale for a moment longer. Out goes RVP, Suarez starts biting; RVP bags a hat trick and my team is a mess. What about that -4 hit I took that cost me 10?
I’m sure that I’m not alone in my distress today, and if not today for you, I’m sure you have felt like this at some point during the season. My simple words for you today are… finish strong. If you’re fighting for the top 10, the top 50,000 or the top 1,000,000, do yourself justice.
Don’t throw in the towel. And if you’re still in one of our competitions why not go ahead and win that?
So to the FPL Dugout Champions League, and here are our Quarter Final results…
After sitting back and handing over to Sleno and Marco for the last few months, I return with a punt on Wigan’s hotshot striker, Arouna Kone.
In a Gameweek that sees some of the top sides pitted against each other, and not many stand out fixtures, it seems a perfect time to look into the horizon to find our target, and Arouna Kone is our man.
UPDATED WITH FIRST LEG AND LMS SCORES FROM GW33
So what a strange couple of weeks that was in the fantasy world. Let me illustrate it for you using my FPL Dugout Champions League match as an example.
1st leg, Saturday, 4:55pm. A positive manager would have said the game had only just begun with just 7 games down, but I thought I knew better. I was 43 points behind. The late game didn’t help me at all, I was 43 behind. I had already said on chat I was out, and I wasn’t playing around, I meant it. But as they say the rest is history, a Dimitar Monday, a couple of clean sheets and I find myself in the last 8 of the Champions League.
So you know I made it, but who else did? Let’s have a full look at the results, and well the draw for the next round to boot!
What a roller coaster of a week we look back on. RVP is our example. An assist in the first half settled the nerves, but then that last minute miss, oh the pain, but 3 bonus and things end well.
What if you started the week with Cazorla or Carroll or maybe ended it with Berbatov, you’re smiling no doubt.
The dream however would be having all 3, now Cazorla and Berbatov maybe, but Carroll as well? I very much doubt it, because he is a punt, and punts aren’t found in many people’s teams.
So with just a few weeks left in your season maybe you’re fighting for glory, or just trying to not come outside the top million.
Whatever your situation to finish strong, the deciding factor will be your differentials. Bale scores 8 goals and it matters not because anyone who is anyone has him. But if Michael Owen scores a brace and you own him then glory might just be found.
Ok so Owen is a little far fetched even for me, but this week’s punt is not…
Time to get stewing on your bowl of shredded wheat. Time to start thinking, he can’t be for real can he?
Oh don’t you worry, I’m not playing around with this punt, it’s a beauty.
Fixtures are on his side: a nice home game and a blank – what could be juicier. So read on to find out all about him!
