FFS Cup

The winners of our FFS Cup competitions revealed

Gameweek 26 saw the finals of both the FFS Members Cup and the FFS Cup take place, with £600-worth of prizes on offer across the two competitions.

FFS CUP

The final of our first 2019/20 FFS Cup was an incredibly tight affair between AMEY and Philman, which ended 70-69 to the latter.

Having each played their second Wildcards in Gameweek 25, both managers opted to use their Bench Boost chips in Gameweek 26.

Ten of their 15-man squads were identical and the only transfer made between the pair of them – AMEY’s capture of Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) at the expense of Charlie Taylor (£4.2m) – proved to be a significant one.

That’s because Mariappa was booked and put through his own net in Watford’s 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion, resulting in the budget defender’s third minus score of 2019/20.

Taylor’s Gameweek 26 score of two points, while modest, would have been enough to see AMEY over the line.

Both managers captained Mohamed Salah (£12.8m), with AMEY’s 13 points from Son Heung-min (£10.0m) offset by Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m)’s hauls for Philman. 

In our third-place play-off, Mataatti edged out stamfordbridge 56-54, with the latter’s transfer of Enda Stevens (£5.1m) in for John Lundstram (£5.0m) proving costly.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

The final of the 2019/20 FFS Members Cup saw Just-In-Cider lose out 56-75 to Pep Pig in a clash between two managers who sat inside the top 10k at the point of the Gameweek 26 deadline.

Unlike the FFS Cup, there was no chip deployment from these two FPL bosses, with Just-In-Cider taking a four-point hit to bring in Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and Jack Stephens (£4.4m) for Martin Montoya (£4.4m) and Lundstram.

Pep Pig’s only transfer saw Jack Grealish (£6.7m) replace Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) but the hit for his opponent scarcely mattered given the margin of victory.

The two finalists shared only four players in Gameweek 26, although both captained Salah.

Son, Robertson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.2m) made a significant difference for Pep Pig, despite Just-In-Cider picking up points for Aubameyang and Grealish.

Becker Call Saul beat maxp1907 73-59 in our third/fourth-place play-off and moved back into the top 1k as a result.

Lundstram, Grealish and Calvert-Lewin were his key differentials in that clash.


Congratulations to all our winners, with the full prize breakdown below.

          You’re a credit to the community.

          I’d be livid.
          I’d have paid some Russian hackers to shut this place down....or at least to delete Mariappa from history.

            I wish the same for Mariappa.
            Hate him 😀
            Actually i made the worst transfer tbh.
            United win over Chelsea helped a bit tbh to get over ...

              Hi mate,

              Feel for you. I lost the 3rd/4th place play off by getting rid of Lundy too soon. Still, at least there was Monday night's match to console me. Oh wait a minute......

                Hard luck mate.
                I'm gutted tbh

  4. Jullepuu

    Are people overlooking Richarlison as a Son replacement? Many are looking at United assets. Are Everton's fixtures really that much worse to United's?

    1. Soto Ayam
      • 4 Years
      4 years, 4 months ago

      I do hope so. I'll bring him in next week and don't want his price to rise before then. He's been great under ancelotti and even though red fixtures are thick and thin, ars, utd and Che he could easily score in.

      1. Jullepuu
        • 4 Years
        4 years, 4 months ago

        I'm looking to get him in as well. Cheers!

    2. JIMMY BUGGINS
      • 5 Years
      4 years, 4 months ago

      I think he's looked great recently, might even get to talisman status, also he scored well when they had a tough run of fixtures earlier in the season and everyone got rid, scored against Leicester, LIverpool and Chelsea in a row. I'd consider if I didn't have DCL.

      1. Jullepuu
        • 4 Years
        4 years, 4 months ago

        I don't have DCL anymore so I really like the look of him. Thanks!

    1!FT and with 9 only for GW28.Either a hit this week or stagger over 2 GW.

    To get 11 I need to get rid of Grealish/Son or Kiko.

    I was thinking of Grea/ Son to Bruno/Rich/ Traore/Barnes. Bruno and Rich more nailed, but Traore good for GW31.

  6. JIMMY BUGGINS
    • 5 Years
    4 years, 4 months ago

    Palace vs Newcastle is the most nailed on 0-0 of all time right?

    1. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      4 years, 4 months ago

      Nailed 1-1

  7. Pep Pig
    • 7 Years
    4 years, 4 months ago

    I can see why many are opting towards Bruno for their Son replacement, but can't help but think we automatically feel we need to go as close to the 10m mark as possible.
    We could do a lot worse than bring in Ward-Prowse at 5.7m, freeing up 4m or so in the bank. Villa (h), West Ham (a), Newcastle (h) and Norwich (a) look great on paper. He's hit the net just 4 times this season, last scoring in GW14 from a class free kick. I'm sure we will see him score another few goals this season to match last season's tally of 7. My hope is that he returns in some of the above games.
    This would also allow me to move on DCL for Vardy in GW 28 (Norwich) in which I again hope we see the start of a purple patch once more for the prolific man himself. No one could have predicted 8 PL blanks in a row in front of goal, though he did score Leicester's only goal in the 3-1 reverse fixture at the Etihad.

    Just some food for thought for us who feel we need a higher priced midfielder to fill the gap?

    1. Greek Freak
      • 8 Years
      4 years, 4 months ago

      I like the premise of your argument, but I think Southampton attacking assets (other than Ings) are a trap.

      1. Pep Pig
        • 7 Years
        4 years, 4 months ago

        I appreciate that mate.. I would say Redmond and Armstrong could fall in to that category. The only thing I feel separates JWP from that is his set pieces. Like Maddison, he nails corner and free kick duties.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      4 years, 4 months ago

      I do not get the Bruno love. Watched both of his performances so far and cannot see the hype yet.

  8. iL PiStOlErO
    • 5 Years
    4 years, 4 months ago

    Have this attack:

    Salah KdB Son* Grealish (Dendo)
    Firmino Vardy Maupay*

    Plan is to do Maupay to Jimmy and then I have 7.9 for Sonny replacement. Who do you suggest:

    A) Martial (as always not sure about Utd)
    B) Maddison (double up with Party feels like too much)
    C) someone else
