You too Netley have a great week 38


Renegades winning this was great, so was getting promoted to the Prem in Fantrax. RAPID pipped me in FPL draft by 2pts, the difference of DSilva going from 2 baps to 1 and Gundog 1 to 2, late on too, basically 33bps to 34bps, sheesh! laugh.gif 2 out of 3 ain't bad though.

A few words before we take a well earned rest.

VSB - Our heartbeat and inspiration, my dour tactical approach combined with his flair and enthusiasm is an odd mix, but it works and what a fine season he had, 2400+ and top 5k, massive season.

Snipes - Returned to his home to post his best ever finish. Guided skillfully by VSB, a great season.

Wrfly - Another great season, our most consistent player and not averse to a risk or two.

Andy - A return to form and always a contender for top 3, safe pair of hands, good season.

Nichi - A depth draft VSB advised me to take. What a bargain! Comparisons with RAPID are unfair but this 'boy' has talent.

FF & I - Combined well to do the dirty work at times, did a job to decrease the volatility, important pairing.

Shaun - Grabbed from the S11 Classic League at 250k w/o a 2nd WC just to help us out, help us get a bench again. Storming finish to get into the top 100k, his best ever finish, what a find!


We all contributed massively to winning this again, it seemed improbable around GW30 but somehow we did it. Fantastic effort fellas, have a great Summer and let's do it all over again in August. biggrin.gif

Cheers everybody & a big thanks to Netters for taking the lead & putting up with some of my crazy proposals.
Congrats VSB for that well timed run and the level headed advise you also gave me.

It's easier to win something once than defend it, so we've done remarkable job. As a result next years defence will be even harder as we have a doubled the reason for them wanting to beat us. However we are a strong unit and won't give it up that easy.

Enjoy watching the Champions/Europa finals and rest up.

Let's meet back in August & go for the treble.

Cheers, mate. I couldn't have done it without you. I chased your tail, but when I got close to it and got a whiff, I thought it best to keep going forward and as far away from the stench as possible. laugh.gif

Cheers all. It was a hard fought win, but everyone fought, and hence we won.
We all had some bad patches, but then someone always stepped up and we still managed to do well.

I think in the end, we all finished in the top 130k, which is very respectable.
Everyone stayed interested until the very end, and that was the difference.
Hopefully we can all stay together next season, and I think we can do much better.

Big thanks to Netley for all the work he's done in The Arena, and for the effort he puts into our team, to pick a great order every week. In the end, that makes the difference, as most teams have equal ability most weeks.

We sure did, I was the bottom of the pile & finished 128,059.
Which is an improvement of 280,000 on last year and only the 2nd time I've cracked 2200 pts.
So the aim is another step forward & crack the top 100k.

You and I were both in the top 40k after a few weeks. Best start I ever had, and I thought it'd be a great year.
But a good start meant WCing late, and I think that ended up a curse. The WC actually made us drop rank.
But the boosters came in handy and both of us shot up a fair bit in the last 7 weeks.
A lesson learnt, or is every season uniquely different? I guess we'll find out next season. laugh.gif

Gonna be tough next season. Will there be another 4.0 superstar like AWB from the beginning?
LIV DEF will all be 7.0+. Who will we turn to? Digne won't be cheap either.

If Haz goes, RLC or CHO might become options, but you can bet their prices will skyrocket to the 8-9 price area.

I think I might go with a 3-5-2 next season, with a cheap front 3, and a decent back 3.
It always felt like value. Mark Sutherns went that way early on, and smashed it.

The big MIDs were all cheaper than the big FOR and easily outscored them.
The mid priced FOR all got pretty close to the big FOR for great value.
Then there were some awesome cheap MIDs who did really well.
I think the way the baps are now, it's changed the balance to the above template.

good point on the WC .. when i played my first one I dropped 86k places & continued to drop 6 out of the next 7 weeks, going from placed top 84k to 720k . 4 weeks of that period was the only time spent outside of the top 400k so I'm pleased with that.

Think it is going to be the toughest one for awhile, people like Bilva will rise a lot as well. Finding that bargain is going to be v hard.
With Citeh & Liverpool being that far ahead will be amazed if people squeeze in 3 from both sides & still have quality throughout.

Sorry for the delay. Been in Asia for 38 but great win guys! This game must be easy Iíve won both seasons Iíve played tongue.gif

But seriously, thanks for the good advice, banter and hard work by Netley and VSB. Finally, thanks for making me your first pick in the draft was a bit unexpected as I thought I was under the radar. Weíve had two great teams and that comes from a great captain(s)!

Thanks for filling in our gap and contributing in all facets. Look forward to having you next season from the beginning.
We'll romp it in. wink.gif

Have you got a brother? Would he be interested next season?
