Massive congratulations to PK ALL STARS, who has won the AM Challenge Cup, beating 600 teams over 6 rounds! There is no prize as such, but the pride of winning the competition will hopefully be enough :) Well done to all who got through to the final!

I'm not certain if PK All Stars are managed by any of the blog regulars, but if it's you then please let yourself be known in the comments section below...congratulations again!

The Week 34 Player Picks will be up later today & they are of course the last of the season. It's also the final of The Blog Cup where Stephane's FrenchCannons face off again AlexDarlo's Supermassive FC, with the winner rewarded with the prize of the Premier League football shirt of their choice. Good luck to both!


Cheers,
AM

THe question for me is what the fk to do in my spare time at work instead of checking out fantasy football. Might have to do some work!!

What are you going to do AM? Start a YFF rehab clinic?

Spurs fans please read. seemed like Spurs aren't in good shape either.

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=782565&sec=england&cc=4716
"West Ham United were ten days away from a total fire sale of all their players or administration, or worse, in January. I believe that in the next 12 months a substantial club will not only go into administration, but it will be liquidated and cease to exist."
so which will this club be?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2010/feb/14/premier-league-play-off-champions-league
"Uefa, however, points out that Champions League income represents a small part, 8–13%, of Manchester United's, Chelsea's, Arsenal's and Liverpool's total turnover. "

i like to share a view i saw on the net elsewhere. Everton, Spurs, fulham, villa (anymore?) couldn't cpoe with both europe and domestic(to a less extent ,Liverpool) . So i don't see the point why they keep insisting on "getting into europe" where, it is best to build up the second team first ( i know chicken-egg issue). they should plan first, get in and stay there( then become Everton-the-yo-yo-club II or III), especially true for the Villians.
Now spurs are going to CL, hopefully they put up a good display. People seemed to forget why there are 4 CL places for EPL. Because the Big 4 fought tooth and nails for it. Spurs must not do "an Everton" and damage the coefficient please. As for ManC, it just means one more year.

http://www.premierleague.com/page/Headlines/0,,12306~1797582,00.html
as for the upcoming transfer market, i think it will be quite quiet. As i said earlier, there is going to be a financial fair play scheme coming up. the big 4 are going to tailor their transfers as accordingly. with the "squad cap of 25 players" and "eight home-grown players out of a squad of 25"[see link above]. we are coming into the next phase[5th] of EPL next season and another[6th] phase in 2012-13(or the latest 2013-14). time for plenty changes or not? discuss.

AM congrats on Spurs and thanks for the Blog. I suggest like India has done that next season regulars should have [AM.Blog] in the team name.

Also how about an end of season awards. Drogs was on another planet, Lampard Rooney and Tevez were all great.

Surprises - Bent and Rodallega. Yes we whined and swore off them but they finished on the first page of total YFF scoring. MTay, Duff also get a mention. Although MTay was pricey from Day 1.

Best Value - Early in season it was Vermaelen and Alexander but Bale without doubt was the man who drove many a YFF player up the standings.

Disappointments - Gerrard and due to injury; RVP and Torres.

Keepers - No stand outs but if you look at Gomes total points of 256 and that he started the season at 8.17 he's my pick of the season. Hahnemann deserves a mention here also.

Also I am a newbie and only learned of the barndoor midway through the season. If you looked at player values in week one here's the team you could have trotted out.
Player [Value] (Total Points)
Gomes [8.17] (256)
Bale [6.32] (224)
Dunne [8.82] (278)
Cueller [7.24] (258)
Milner [10.27] (325)
Malouda [9.66] (303.5)
Duff [7.65] (290.5)
NZog [7.91] (260.5)
Drogs [13.69] (510.5)
Bent [9.38] (358.5)
Tevez [9.48] (438.5)
TOTAL [98.59] (3503)

3503 doesn't get it done even though this team has some of YFF's most consistent performers. It goes to show match ups and the BD are very important.

Saw this gem on the yahoo message board. If you're comfortably ahead in your private league and not fighting for a top 50 or 100 finish how about this team....

is there any type of world cup fantasy, or just bracket predictors? I've been looking for a one online and cant seem to find any.

MOST EXCITING SEASON EVER!!! Competition has never been this good, and the title had not been this hard to get for years.

Congratulations spurs fans, well deserved!!! AM- well done! Thanks for doing a great job on this blog, you make football so much fun. Cheers to you!

And one last thing...even though he wasn't on the pick the last 2 games, Wilson Palacios deserves praise. He was influential to Tottenham and hope he stays there because just as he's been, the team has been good to him.

Honduran-Saul

P.S - This has been a year of Glory for Hondurans as well. Wilson Palacios in Champions League, and Honduras in the World Cup after 28 years of nonexistence. I"m honored to be Honduran!

COYS COYS COYS!!!!
so happy spurs got the win at Eastlands.. money can't buy you love, or champions league

many many thanks to AM for this blog. it takes a lot of dedication to maintain a blog week in, week out, we really appreciate all your hard work! thank you!

not sure about this final week, not a lot of cheap options to be had..

tinkering with:

Fulop
Foley S.Camp Rio
AdamJ Scholes Wilshere Rosicky
RVP Rooney Kalou

but that would be dropping Bale and Tevez. It's hard not to like Tevez against one of his old clubs..

Hey AM, was listening to talk sport earlier and have to agree with what they said about if Ledley King had been injury free he would have been one of the best centre backs in the world!! Also England simply have to take both him and Dawson. Good work on the blog, always a good read although sometimes I avoid it so that I don't confuse myself and end up making rash decisions ;-)
