The AM Challenge - Round 2 Results


I'm rushed off my feet today so I'm afraid I've got no time to write an indepth analysis of last night's games. I haven't even had a chance to write my Week 20 Player Picks yet, but I hope to have this written & posted up by the end of the day.

What I have just had time to do is calculate The AM Challenge Cup Round 2 results, where the Top 250 from the remaining 406 teams would go through. Was 129 points enough to progress to Round 3...?

The cut-off was 123.5, so after 2 goals & 2 assists last night I ended the week on 129 points & just scraped through to the 3rd Round.

My score was average but enough to get me back in to the top 2000. I would've moved up further, but players I didn't have such as Fabregas, Kuyt & Matty Taylor had bumper evenings.

I'll say quickly that Spurs were a huge disappointment vs Liverpool, didn't seem up for the fight, lost every 50-50 tackle & deserved to lose.

Congratulations if you got through - as I mentioned, I'll get my Week 20 Player Picks up later this afternoon.

Cheers,
AM

through by 1.5pts :) but happy with arshavin at last! and with a suprisingly peril-free liverpool win.

greginho said...

this is funny. i would have been second this round with 195, if i had not choked so badly, last time. i missed the cut by 2 points. good luck to all still in it!

Anonymous said...

What a poor week for me! Only 107.5 pts, and in a double week at that! Yeah, I'm disappointed but life goes on. Hopefully week 20 will be a bumper week for me.

Btw, I'll like to know how to join the AM challenge. I tried to join last time but couldn't find any indication to join. Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks in advance!

Bengoh - I'm afraid the AM Challenge was set up for all members of the 6 Blog Leagues a couple of months back, & so with 2 rounds already gone it's too late to join for this season.

Sorry, but hopefully you can get a place next season!

My bad luck was that I had three Birmingham players, Bowyer, Johnson and Jerome. Sunk by the cancellation. :-(

Well done Tekno, although you've got about 17 teams in the competition, so by the law of averages at least one of them had to get through...

Wow, close one! I was right at the cutoff with 123.5 pts =P

Happy Thursday, gents.

Good week for me, 181.5 points strong...and some eerily symmetrical results as I had 91.5 points after the weekend games and 90 points yesterday (on the strength of 5 Wednesday goals!). I was sweating the decision to play Kuyt up front after the Stoke game but was vindicated yesterday as he ended up being my team's high scorer for the week (I was chatting with some folks last week, pondering who would be taking PKs for 'pool with their injuries...I guess we know now). All three of my Arsenal players scored yesterday and Modric returned good fantasy points despite the horrible overall performance of Spurs at Anfield...really pleased that I have him at 6.98. Of all the players I did not choose last week, I was most nervous about not selecting Defoe...glad that that decision did not come back to bite me in the ass.

What can you say about Fabregas? I never would have thought that a player would be able to challenge Drogba for Player of the Year this year but he is certainly making a big case for consideration in that regard. I still don't regret not picking him up for 17.5 given Arsenal's upcoming schedule (Villa, Chelsea, Man United and Liverpool - OUCH) but, if anyone can still come through and score in those tough games, it's him. It pains me to say it as a Spurs fan but AW is putting in a virtuoso managing performance this season with all of the injuries that his team has had to endure...very impressed.

Biggest headaches for me going into next week are (i) do I hold on to both Lamps and Elk despite the tough fixture against Brum in anticipation of Chelsea's double-week, (ii) do I spend big on Rooney in lightof hte home fixture against Hull or do I save some serius cash and field Valencia instead, (iii) do I stick with Van der Sar as a season keeper (pun only half intended) in the low 8s or does the depleted Man United backline give me enough pause to seek a cheaper option).

Did anyne see Kalinic scored a brace against Villa yesterday? Hello bargain-priced striker.

boo-hoo. bummed to miss the cut. If I'd just made the right decision on 2 selections, I would have made it with ease. I had to choose between Rafael & Wes Brown and kept the former (who didn't play), and I went for Benitez instead of Landon Donovan (USA!), and weather kept Chucho from stepping on the pitch. bah. But those are the kind of bad decisions that drop you out in the early rounds.

Good luck all, I'll get back to trying to break into the top 20,000. :)

What a disappointing week and ousting from the AM Challenge. At least I'm still alive in the Blog Cup.

I decided to keep one gamers in Tevez, Given, Larsson and Benitez because they were all on huge discounts. Between a poor Man City performance and Birmingham ppd, that quartet totaled 1 point last week. They were averaging over 50 points per week for my team the three prior weeks. Very disappointing. .
