Sunday Dugout Discussion

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Mark

Here we are then, the final day. Will we get a dramatic climax or will City close out the title in a cool, efficient manner? Our Dugout Discussion chatroom is now open to soak up the reactions as the Fantasy season draws to end with the day’s ten three o’clock kick-offs.

The team news is in and available via our tweets as always. The headlines have Fernando Torres benched in a much-changed Chelsea lineup, while Sir Alex Ferguson plays silly buggers and fields Jonny Evans, 24-hours after announcing he’ll need ankle surgery in the summer. The trickster is playing us right to the end. Roberto Mancini stays cool and fields an unchanged lineup, while Mark Hughes in opposition hopes that a clash with his old side can bring out the magic in Shaun Wright-Phillips – he and Djibril Cisse look to provide the unexpected for visiting QPR.

I’ll be knocking about the chatroom throughout the ninety minutes as the curtain gradually closes on another superb Premier League season. Brace yourselves.

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
  3. Does anyone know how many teams get promoted from the FFS H2H Reserve League?

    • 2 years, 5 months ago
    1. 15 I think

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
      1. Really? I thought it was more, no promotion for me then :(

        • 2 years, 5 months ago

    1. QPR not relegated?

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    2. Because his team secured their prem status. He was looking for his qpr team mates and thought I'd rather celebrate with my French pal.

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    3. He's best mates with Samir Nasri & QPR stayed up!

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    4. QPR stayed up?

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    5. They stayed up to be fair

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    6. Because QPR avoided relegation and he is happy for his friend..

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    7. Meh, i suppose - but yeah, you'd have thought he'd be celebrating with his own fans/team.

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    8. Erm he scored against City so thats just idiotic

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
  5. Syd

    Liverpool finished 37 points behind the league winners....

    • 2 years, 5 months ago
    1. Liverpool lose again what a surprise!!!

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    2. I knew doubling up on Swansea defence was a solid move...

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    3. Finished 37 points behind the winners and the runners up.

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    4. Won the Carling Cup though so it's all good...

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
  6. A bit gutted to not make the top 1k, but this is still by far my best ever FPL-season, mainly thanks to the people of FFS. Would never have imagined to finish so far into the 10k. Thank you!

    • 2 years, 5 months ago
    1. I didn't like it at all when I first saw it, but it's growing on me and a jersey might end up in my drawer before the next season is done. ;)

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
      1. dont order the gold badges for the sleeves though ;)

        • 2 years, 5 months ago
    2. I'm not that fond of it...The green goalie one is horrible. Plenty of gammy strips for next season though.

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
    • 2 years, 5 months ago
  7. Woooohoooo! Mini league won (unless something ridiculous happens with the bonus!)
    Thanks everyone for all your help over the season!

    • 2 years, 5 months ago
  8. Quick questions guys!

    A) Will Terry get all 3 BAPS?

    B) Will Vorm, Caulker or Valencia have any chance of getting a single bonus point between them?

    C) If all is equal with my rival in terms of points, how do I calculate who will be deemed winner?

    Cheers guys :)

    • 2 years, 5 months ago
    1. The one with the least transfers wins if level on points, if level after thatafter that its a straight out fight to the death ;)

      • 2 years, 5 months ago
      1. I'm screwed then basically, stupid way to judge it IMO. If you do more transfers you at least covered the points hit through gaining more points.
