FFS Cup

The FFS Cups – Finals

The final Gameweek of the season sees the conclusion of our two Premier League cup competitions. Here we reveal who has made it through the finals as well as the managers competing in the third place play-off matches.

K3lviN took giant killing to new levels to book his seat in our open to all cup final, after seeing off 134 ranked Live Hall of Fame top ten manager My Pretty Pony (aka Peter Kouewenberg). This 80,381 ranked manager’s sensational score of 199 proved too much for Peter’s 180 return in Gameweek 37.

He will meet another Goliath in the final after 740 ranked Sleepysi defeated Choppers13 in his semi-final.

Of the pair K3lviN has the experience of pressure, having finished 2012/13 second in the overall rankings. Sleepysi’s top 10,000 ranking in 2013/14 also means he is no stranger to impressive end of season runs.

In terms of key differentials, Sleepysi has Spurs’ Christian Eriksen, who should start away to Hull City on Sunday after was rested against Leicester City last night. He will also be hoping for an Arsenal clean sheet, at home to Everton, with Petr Cech expected to be fielded by Sleepysi alongside Nacho Monreal, who is owned by both.

For K3lviN he has Southampton’s Nathan Redmond, Leroy Sane of Manchester City and Spurs full-back Ben Davies as his main differentials.

Chelsea’s teamsheet could prove decisive, with Sleepysi stocked up with Eden Hazard, Marcos Alonso and Pedro, while his opponent has Cesar Azpilicueta as well as the Blues’ Belgian schemer.

With two free transfers to play it remains to be seen whether they will make dramatic changes. Philippe Coutinho may be one key target ahead of Liverpool’s home clash with Middlesbrough. The Brazilian could also offer a strong differential armband option.

With a £200 Amazon voucher to the winner and £100 to the runner-up, risks may need to be taken.

There’s a £50 voucher up for grabs for the winner of Choppers13 and My Pretty Pony’s third place play off.

In the Members Cup aspern goes through the final by the closest of margins, with his 2890 rank proving the difference after both he and his 4120 placed semi-final opponent Dynamic scored 175.

He will meet 8122 ranked Malaikat Jahad, who had a far easier semi-final, seeing off Barwood 196-171.

Of the Members Cup’s two finalists, Malaikat is the more seasoned veteran, with two top 10,000 finishes in his previous nine seasons. In contrast, aspern is in his third campaign and has yet to finish in the top 100,000.

Both only have one transfer to play and aspern may be tempted to use it to ditch Southampton’s misfiring striker Manolo Gabbiadini, who netted zero points in double Gameweek 37 after a no-show and missed penalty. Aspern’s key differentials include Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Eriksen, Bournemouth’s in-form midfielder Josh King and Leicester City’s Marc Albrighton.

For Malaikat he will be hoping his differentials Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Tottenham duo Heung-Min Son, and Dele Alli will be more than a match.

As with our open to all contest, the winner of this final will scoop a £200 Amazon voucher, with £100 going to the runner up.

A £50 voucher is available to the winner of Barwood and Dynamic’s play off.

Good luck to all those involved and if you would like more information on the schedule and prizes click this link.

      I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I don't think you're making up 50pts with that team.

      Lukaku > Kane (TC) if that's what the 3cpt means.

      Use Valencia out to raise the funds. No way he starts.

      1. pantynextdoor

        This

  4. Hurricane Gilbert
    5 months, 4 days ago

    Hazard & JWP/Gabbi out for? (-4)

    A) Fabregas & Coutinho
    B) Siggy & Sturridge

    Gabbi > Giroud for a hit and captain??

  7. Virgil Hilts

    5 months, 4 days ago

    Best chance of starting in which order?

    Cahill
    Alonso
    Azpil

    thanks

    1. Foozeball
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Alonso
      Azpil
      Cahill

      1. Virgil Hilts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 4 days ago

        thanks

        Might do Cahill to Azpil with my 2nd spare FT then

    2. unlethal
      5 months, 4 days ago

      Azpilicueta
      Alonso
      Cahill

      Remember, Azpilicueta is only 90 minutes away from achieving the feat of playing every single minute of the season. As for Alonso and Cahill, if John Terry is to play he would most likely replace Cahill/other CBs.

    Does the Swansea players going to Ibiza for 2 nights earlier this week mean they will be rested and play well or that they will now be thinking of getting back ASAP and play poorly?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
