The Blog Cup - Final Results

   

Firstly, congratulations to Chelsea for sealing the 2009/10 Premier League title yesterday  - I think they probably deserved it over the season & its easy to forget they did it without their best player (in my opinion), Michael Essien. We'll have to wait & see who does what over the summer, but I'm sure Man United & Sir Alex will be even more determined to get revenge next year, with Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool & maybe even Spurs thrown in to the mix...I'm looking forward to it already!

Now I've actually had a really disappointing end to the fantasy season, as I failed to break 100 points for 4 out of the final 6 weeks to finish in 343rd. It keeps up my record of a top 500 finish every year (a huge relief!), it should've been better...but there's always next season! Anyway, I'm really pleased to read the comments from people who have won their private leagues or significantly improved their overall ranking with some assistance from the blog - we've got some top players reading & I hope next year we can get more of us in to the Top 500!

Now on to The Blog Cup results & I find it hard to believe exactly how close it was between Supermassive FC & FrenchCannons. Alex & Stephane have had great seasons & the both broke the 100 point mark in Week 34 to give themselves a chance.

Incredibly the result was 107 points v 107.5 points, a 0.5 point swing in favour of FrenchCannons, so huge congratulations to Stephane, who will claim the prize of a Premier League shirt of his choice, but it does seem a shame to have a loser after such a close race so I'll be sorting something out for Alex too. If both of you could leave your email addresses in the comments section I'll be in contact - as soon as I have your email addresses I'll delete them from the blog to prevent spammers etc.

That pretty much wraps things up for now, but I'll continue posting occasionally over the summer & we'll follow one of the Fantasy World Cup games, so please keep checking back. The final thing I'd ask is for everyone who reads the blog to please comment below with you name/team name & finishing position in the overall rankings. The record for the most comments in a post is 135, but I know we have over 600 fans and 1000s of readers so it would be really great if as many of you as possible posted so we get an idea of how everyone did & break that record!

Thanks for all your support!

Cheers,
AM

If God Had A Dream Team... - 2076th overall.

I'm devastated I didn't make it into the top 2000 but that's probably down to me making some bad choices in the last week (Cahill (0), O'Shea (0), Defoe (1) etc etc). But I have achieved my best position by far, mostly down to the advice and tips from yourself AM and the rest of the blog contributors! I also managed to win my private league by 827.5 points, having finished 4th and 3rd the last 2 years respectively! (Admittedly, I think my friends gave up but it's still impressive).

My team finished 5,932nd after a late start in my 1st season, so I'm happy with that and especially the help with team picks from your blog AM.
Next season I'm looking for a top 500 finish!
Have a great summer

DownSouth - from Florida, USA.

Found Blog in 5th week or so and was ranked around 60,000.

Overall Finish: 4,328.
1st half of season ranking: 13,413.
2nd half of season ranking: 2,363

Finished 1st in my league and won by 850 pts. I haven't checked in as much recently with the huge lead. I broke my leagues will around week 25 and coasted in from there. :)

Question for anyone out there willing to do the calculation: Did keeping Drogba through the African Cup payoff?

Thanks to AM for the Blog and to all my fellow managers for the insight. It really helped me in my 1st year of YFF.

'On with the motley Crewe' - finished 150th after a great last few weeks. First in 'Beat the Bloggers 2' - I know that's run by Neal and Jeremy, but it was a lot easier to win their league than yours - only 5th in YYF3 and 9th in chat room regulars!
Absolutely delighted with that - it's my highest ever ranking so the last week of a season it the right time to get it! Along with Jeff, my biggest mistake was holding on to discounts a little too long, but it's a fine balance; Drogba and Vermaelen were surely must-have's for the first half of the season and Bale for the second half. I didn't change keeper much and might have done better there - Given from week 2 to 13 and Almunia from 14 to 29 (changed him just in time to get Myhill home to Burnley!). On balance though they didn't do too badly - Almunia averaged way over cost for the duration, but had two nightmare weeks. Still, it was after I started switching every week that I made a big move up the rankings, so I ought to learn that lesson.
I have to thank you AM and all the other contributors to the blog - without you all I wouldn't have done nearly as well. Looking forward to next year; while I'm pleased with my performance, how on earth could I improve it by 200 points, and even that would only have put me eighth overall. There are some seriously good players out there!

Anywhere we can find out how many people play the game overall?

DJ PIGG said...

Deportivo de La Clydebank - 3654.5 points

2532nd overall

220th in Fans of Other

1st in my Private League by 640 points

(I was let down in the last week by having Rooney, Ballack and Malouda in my team who earned me 7 points)

Thanks again, Nik/AM, for all your invaluable advice over the season. I wouldn't have done so well on my own!

Thanks AM!!

KPM/MPFC said...

Finished 2231 overall, moving up almost 500 points on the last weekend with my 123.5 total (MPFC is my team name). Not bad. Could have been much better if not for some poor decision making during the year(i.e. Drogba, Myhill and Bale) but stuff happens.

I went to see what other players not on my roster scored over the weekend but that seemingly is not possible because clicking on Team Manager gives me a nastygram about not being able to change players for this tournament.

Bradley said...

Sonic Rovers: 517

Thanks again AM. BTW, in Blog League 2 I finished just below you and just above Mike B. and Doctor Teeth. :)

I'm a little sad I fell short of 500. I screwed up the penultimate week and didn't make up enough ground last weekend. Still, it's not a bad finish for my first season, especially considering I was 12008th after week 6. Hopefully I can get off to a stronger start next season.

pigeon Licker finished 2,753rd

only 62.50 points for last weekend, shame, was hoping to try and break out of the 2k!
never mind it's my first season on YFF (and I will be back for the new season)

Great big tanks to AM and all the regular bloggers, helped me take my private league (and my wife to finish 2nd)

All the best to everyone and hope your respective teams do well in the world cup (unless they play england)

In its second YFF season, Electric Mayhem FC finished with 3,850 points, good for 808th overall which is slightly worse than its performance last season but god knows its manager had more fun doing it thanks to this blog. EMFC also finished 36th in the Fans of Tottenham league and, most importantly, won its private league by 161.5 points.

Cheers again, AM, for the great blog and I look forward to keeping in touch with you and all of the other regulars over the summer. I look forward to debating the merits of selecting Gareth Bale at 14.8 million in 2.5 months time!

Over and out,

77/7759 in Fans of Tottenham

I finished in the 99th percentile this season. Last year I was 85th percentile, and my first year I was 68th percentile.

The main reason is I was able to find player/injury/form news on this blog and chat room.

Cheers AM for a great blog. I'll be here next year as well.

Great blog - thanks for all the efforts AM, and all the regular contributors too who assist me on a Saturday morning!

Big Banana Bruises finished 898 - first time in top 1000, discovered this around xmas time

Was inside top 250 at one stage but some stupid decisions like dropping Lampard and Rooney on the Saturday morning before their 4 goal blockbuster games v Villa and Hull AND missing the Bale bandwagon because I hate picking players who I miss on the BD cost me (ended up having to pick him at 15 instead of 2!)

Anyone notice that the winner held on by 1.5 points after a poor last game...

By the way if anyone knows a good World Cup FF game can you post it on here!!

Additional financial cloud over EPL:

"To make matters worse, it has emerged that a new £15 million claim for unpaid taxes issued by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs involves payments for image rights rather than player salaries, a dangerous precedent that could have widespread ramifications for the entire Premier League."
"Image rights have traditionally been protected from substantial PAYE payments with special concessions and Andronikou said: "This sends out a definite warning sign to a number of larger clubs employing international players. If they are successful against Portsmouth, it will have a significant knock-on effect."

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/feature?id=784584&sec=england&cc=4716

wonder if they are successful will they go after ManU for CRon7's image fee? 80m don't seemed so much now, does it?
*and of course other clubs as well(including Liverpool)

Hi A_M,

Am not sure whats more of a relief, I get my weekends back or that you chose A_M rather than me having to spell your surname every week!

But joking aside this has been great, I never ever expected to finish with a team 41st and a team 103rd, I won my private leagues by christmas and in the end was over 1,000 points ahead, and they were no mugs.

This blog hasn't just helped on the YFF front but also put me in touch with people and been a wole load of fun, christ i looked forward to thursday player picks!! (but did miss when you stopped the BD section at the end).

YFF is addictive and I need a break, i want to enjoy the world cup with no pressure so its ideal.

So onto next season, my first pick is Chameck and yours will be Fox (am sure he'll move up).

my email address is alex.ayre@hotmail.co.uk

All the best for the summer guys and hope your countries do well, but forget that England will win the cup ;-)

Overall rank: 4,611

Not bad considering I was outside the 20,000th position at the start of the 2nd half of the season! Definitely aiming for at least top 1,000 next season :)

A massive shout out to AM and the other regular contributers (especially Kellz) for the insight and advice over the course of the season. It's really made this years YFF that much more fun!

@Tigers: I can't wait for the World Cup either. I shall be there too! Two second round games, potentially ARGENTINA vs SOUTH AFRICA (or FRANCE?) and NETHERLANDS vs PARAGUAY (or ITALY?).

Total points 3645

Overall rank 2660

I can't believe how many top 100 and top 1000 finishes were racked up by members of the group. Its incredible. While I slipped here I won my private group (RSS-rec.sports.soccer on usenet-probably the longest running group on the net, by 500 points. Yes!)

I had loads of fun here. The high point of course being my two weeks spent as #1 in the world at the start of the season. It was all down hill after that. My major mistake, not to be repeated, was not going all in on the first couple of DG weeks. That killed me, cost me a couple of hundred points which considering how tight thinks were probably cost me at least 1000 places.

Many thanks of course to AM. But also to folks who livened up the chat room and contributed to the mirth. A shout out to Bojan, Fidan Hans, Doc Teeth, Steve Bob, Kellz and all the other regulars. You guys rock. See you next year

Points: 3858
Rank: 767

I'm sad about dropping out of the top 750 on the final day, but a top 800 finish is nothing less than what I could've asked for in the beginning of the season. I owe it all to Nik who had done a fantastic work throughout the season, and to all the readers that help with relevant information and helpful advice.
There is a great football summer waiting for us, and after such a great season of league football, I can expect nothing less from the World Cup. Have a great summer, and I'm sure I'll be back here soon enough for the next season of Fantasy Football.

Picked up 20 quid from fellow private league players (came 1st) which was pretty sweet. Can't wait to see who Spurs get in with all that extra CL money. Not like they haven't bought big without it. Great work you Greek God, looking forward to next season and the WC

Hi AM

Thanks for all your hard work this season on your blog, certainly helped me - my best previously was around 8000th, I finish now on 889th (FC Karnataka), very happy with that.

Now I look forward to watching Brazil v Portugal next month in my home town of Durban in South Africa!!

Not exactly sure what happened but my overall rank just improved by three places. Instead of 2231 I am now at 2228. I am hoping if I wait a few more days it will continute to improve.

Also I neglected to post my total points in my original post. 3,678.50

As I said that total could have been better. If for no other reason, Week 19 where I only tallied 7.5 points. If memory serves that was the weekend were all the games were pretty much snowed out.

KPM/MPFC said...

BTW, does anyone know a way to go back and look at previous seasons? I guess in my case its singular because last year was my first year. I just wanted to compare this year to last year and see how I improved. I can't seem to get to last year's information.

There are some post adjustments to the points, hence the ranking changes.

@KPM/MPFC: Try this, log in to Yahoo and go to http://profiles.sports.yahoo.com

Assuming you have been using the same Yahoo login, you should see your past season performances, not just for YFF, but also for other Yahoo Fantasy teams (although for overall rankings, it is presented in terms of percentile).

KPM/MPFC said...

@Anon 3:54pm I tried that, but unlike my other leagues, there is no click through to actually go to the league page. I can go to any year's baseball, hockey, or American football and look at the standings, etc. But for some reason golf and the premier league do not let me look at group standings, etc. In fact I can't even tell how many points I scored last year. All I get is a percentile ranking overall.
