Pundits Playoff MW2 Results

Halfway through the first period of the Pundits Playoff now, and the results are in for match week 2.
Following their domination of Matchweek 1, Unbelievable Jeff FC continued in the same fashion and are the current league leaders. Here are the teams in league order:

  1. Unbelievable Jeff FC, with 29 points
  2. WhenTheOWENgetsTough, 27.5 points
  3. Blame it on Rio, 27 points
  4. The Keane Fifteen, 25 points
  5. Back to Square Owen, 20 points
  6. “15” Musketeers, 16 points
  7. Brazil Nuts, 14 points
  8. Nirvana Scott Talent, 6 points
  9. BSC Small Boys (in the park) FC, 5.5 points
  10. A Whole Lawro B*llocks, 4 points
  11. Slaven’s Ball-itch, 3 points
  12. Holly’s Hamsters, 0 points

Full details of the scores, results and tables can be found here.

Most Valuable Player and Best Manager

Wolverine (£100m) from Unbelievable Jeff FC is the current MVP, with a score of 140.
Unsurprisingly, the best manager of the period so far is Pirlo’s Pen of…yes you guessed it…. Unbelievable Jeff FC. His team have the highest squad value and the highest H2H scores too.

Matchweek 3 fixtures

  • WhenTheOWENgetsTough vs Back to Square Owen
  • BSC Small Boys (in the park) FC vs A Whole Lawro B*llocks
  • Nirvana Scott Talent vs Holly’s Hamsters
  • The Keane Fifteen vs Unbelievable Jeff FC
  • “15” Musketeers vs Slaven’s Ball-itch
  • Brazil Nuts vs Blame it on Rio

A reminder that each team must now nominate three players for each of the H2H matches to earn bonus points, and two players to grace their team bench who’s scores will not count. A brief reminder of how the scores work in each match:

Team with best combined score of their starting 13 will earn 9 points. In the case of a draw both teams get 3 points. A losing team gets 0 points.
Winner of H2H A will earn their team an extra 3 bonus points.
Winner of H2H B will earn their team an extra 2 bonus points.
Winner of H2H C will earn their team an extra 1 bonus point.
Any drawn H2H’s will share the bonus points for that H2H.

IMPORTANT: teams that fail to nominate their three H2H and sub players will forfeit any bonus points, so team managers make sure you get these done on time.

MW 3 DEADLINE FOR TEAM NOMINATIONS IS 11:00AM SATURDAY 2ND NOVEMBER.

Scoring on match days will be shown here

Everyone can input their own scores, and managers are responsible for checking their opposition scores. A reminder that Wildcard and Free Hit scores are allowed, but scores with Triple Captain or Bench Boost used should be adjusted to keep things fair.

Will the Hamsters finally get some points? Can the Keane Fifteen achieve a shock win against Unbelievable Jeff FC?

      Not a problem, it was kind of a smaller update this week anyway - half term and looking after kids not freeing up much time for writing articles!

    It’s been a long night at the BIOR camp: Proudmore’s still out at the Vardy Party; Waldo is orchestrating the strutting of the Sterling cappers; KDB owners are chuntering about David Silva’s invisible big toe; and MIR has found out what a H2H victory feels like. Meanwhile Gee is organising a search party as Tinkerman has wandered off again. I do hope he hasn’t fallen in with the BSC Small Boys crowd.

    We’re on the road again in GW11, and it’s Vegan Week in the tent as we plot how to sink our teeth into Brazil’s Nuts. They are already licking their wounds, having done a ‘Mason Greenwood’ in GW10, and the Talk Sport airwaves are awash with calls for the Ginger Whinger’s head. It looks like this could be a close shave.

    We put Rio in charge of the SatNav, which may have been a mistake as our base camp is an Amazon Depot in Ipswich; however, Spatburgunder, Oddjob, and Slasher have already made a start on mingling with the indigenous population. Gee is attending a Granit Xhaka masterclass on captaincy, so Lord and Overthinker are in charge of training: the edited highlights will be out soon in a thirteen volume box set, which will include Captain Kakaroto demonstrating the prototype of Raheem Sterling’s regeneration machine, as well as exclusive footage of Riddermorten pining for red meat. Oblivious to this, FP Elephant is still busy fiddling the mileage on his expenses claim, so it was left to Steve and Step Rovers to remind everyone that we’ve still got a game to play.

    Who’s up for a Brazilian?

        I agree; we are both unbeaten. Should be a good one.

    Greta Thunberg, isn't it? Precocious child. Swedish, isn't it? Never let her daddy bend her over his knee to give her a pants-down spanking. Marvellous. But trees? Are they the lungs of the planet? Is there life on Mars? Ziggy played guitar. Is there any future? Is it all over? Hard to say really. My wife's left me.

    Correction to the article: deadline for team nominations is 10am, not 11am. Good luck to all except Nirvana Scott Talent, we heard they all got dropped on their heads in training so the Hamsters ate feeling confident! 😀

    We had Nirvana on the ropes until Aurier mistook Mane's leg for the ball . . . but we'll take a draw. Looking forward to the Owen derby. There can only be one Owen, and this Owen has got the finest mustache around.

    @Boris

    Can we know if Gee has submitted the team or not? He is on a business trip to the US, probably sleeping now as it is early morning there.
    Let me know what's the status of this, if he hasn't , I'll submit it to you before the deadline

    1. Boris Bodega: Holly's …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Kun and King to Rashford and Vardy was the go all week last night I did Otemendi and Cantwell to Rico and Perez not feeling as good about it as I did last night!

    Tough ask for us heading into tomrw with a gap of 39 points. Need a miracle to turn this one around. Bonus games we have 2 under our belt. Well played Owen M

    1. The_Socca_Philosopha
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Last I checked the gap is only 5 points! And you have a lead in two of the H2H matchups. It's closer than you think!

  18. Boris Bodega: Holly's …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Nirvana Scott Talent are getting owned by the Hamsters with huge tallywhackers, 765-785.
    Hamsters have all the differentials in hand, and 5/6 H2H bonus points in the bag 😎

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I make it...….

      You: 22 points + Vardy x 2, Soy x 2, Schmeichel, Chilwell, Pereira, Maddison; Son.
      Us: Ayew; Mina, Aurier.

      Call it a draw...…...?

      1. Boris Bodega: Holly's …
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        Not a chance, no way we are staying at the bottom of the table. It's not over yet though, red card for Vardy and a couple of pens conceded by Soy would get you guys back into the game

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

            A win for the hamsters, 968 - 888. Nirvana Scott Talent, thanks for the game, H2Hs could’ve gone either way, we lucked out getting five out of six.

  19. The_Socca_Philosopha

    Scores provided by our wizard-in-residence Firetog have Michael Owen beating out Owen Hargreaves by a mere 5 points! All to play for and it all comes down to the Leicester game

    1. Narcos
      • 6 Years

      Ohh woow. Is it this close. I must have made some mistake. What is the differential left for today?

    2. Narcos
      • 6 Years

      Not sure but we might have won this

  20. Sreeraj (The Keane F15Teen)

    UJFC (leaders) vs TK15n(underdogs)

    TK15n - 55+2*Periera
    UJFC - 3*Vardy+2*Maddison+Digne+Aurier

    Bonus 3-UJFC
    Bonus 2-TK15n
    Bonus 1- 1 vs Vardy(UJFC)

    Should be a close finish, if Leicester win big..

    1. Morph - UJFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Vardy is going to have to do something unbelievable (Jeff) for us to win this one.

    2. Morph - UJFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Bonus 2 = TK15: 12pts + Soyuncu -vs- UJFC: Vardy

    3. Urchin
      • 6 Years

      3 in 3 for us (keane 15)

      1. Morph - UJFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 24 days ago

        We clawed back about 40pts today but it wasn't enough.

        TKF 10-4 UJFC?

        Well played.

        2. Kadhai Paneer FC (TK15)
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          11-4 I think!
          Was a lovely matchup. Will you all the luck for the coming weeks! You really are the team to beat!

      We would say we avoided the upset!

    6 months, 24 days ago

    Fair play to WhentheOWENgetsTough, was a close one until Soy boy found the back of the net for Leicester and started "outswarming" us. At the end of the day, it was a good game, but a poor game, if you know what I mean
    Looking forward to bouncing back against the well-hung rodents next week. Cheers!

    1. Narcos
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Thanks. Soy boy did the job for us. A dull day in football tbh.
      Still happy with the win. Not sure if we go top of the league but 3/3 is good start. Well player team.

    Boris, first of all great job putting this tournament together. Fantastic job you and others are doing of running it.
    Now that the first transfer window is coming up will we (keane 15) get a preference to pick players ahead of others since we did not get pre draft picks?
    Kadhai paneer (shivam) stepped in at last moment to when the 12th manager was AWOL so it's only fair he gets some returns on the good gesture....something to consider
