Take our Fantasy Premier League 2011/12 quiz

It’s Sunday, which means only one thing: it’s time for another Fantasy Premier League quiz.

We’ve gone back in time to the 2011/12 campaign and prepared 20 multi-choice questions on Fantasy returns and key events.

This was one of the most memorable seasons in Premier League history, with Manchester City securing their first league title in 44 years thanks to an unforgettable last-minute goal from Sergio Aguero on the final weekend.

Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United were the surprise package as they sealed a fifth-place finish, while Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers dropped into the Championship.

Click ‘next’ below to start the quiz and to cycle through the questions, and let us know how you got on in the comments section.

Depending on whether we get any sort of announcement from the Premier League about a restart over the coming week, this may well be the last quiz of the series for now.

I swear you’ll never see anything like this ever again…

      Bought Baldock (benched) but Ward first on bench. You win some you lose dome 😆

        Ooh nice turn of events 😀 Glad Baldock wasn't subbed in for the 1 pointer

          Gutted as a Baldy owning Bench Booster - never saw a Jagielka usurpation coming!

      Was thinking of bringing him in, but you talked me into keeping Jimi for Spurs.

        What signs about Ings form made you want to bring him in? 😆

          Was between him and Tammy.

          I had Ings earlier on in the season and I do like him. Chelsea fixtures not great, so Ings was an option, but Jimi should do well against leaky Spurs.

      like real fpl I keep missing hauls, I sold ings too and played lascelles instead of wonder bonus ward, swapped de bruyne for sane etc etc salah captain so naturally he will break toes in 51st minute just after getting sent off after his penalty miss ...

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 13 days ago

        Nearly all the same moves as me and the same level of optimism about Captain Mo.

  2. Ragabolly

    Pukki outscored Ings after all 😀 (that's if you did Ings -> Pukki)

    1. Legomané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Got both and captained Pukki tonight, it's always rather nice when a punt comes off, most often it doesn't.

  3. gooberman

    Have both Pukki and Ings. Boom!

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Played Cantwell this time, benched him for his last 2 hauls.

  4. Nomar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Had TAA, Auba and Mo (c) in that game. Nice returns from all.

    Is it just me or are there a ridiculous amount of yellow cards in virtual FPL?

    1. Oscar Slater

      Probably Covid related.

    Finally a couple of greens in a row, Ward's points would have been nice rather than planted to the end of my bench but looks like I'm not alone there.

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      You sure aren’t.

      Fortunately Webster bailed me out this time.

    15/20, best score so far.

    Can’t say I’ve missed football/fpl that much but I’m getting pretty excited about its return

  10. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

    Fair to expect a lot of PL developments, (and hopefully decisions) this week?

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 13 days ago

      Guess they'll have to make some sort of decision as the UEFA deadline is coming up on 27th.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah, it's June this day next week so think things are going to have to start happening over next few days

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 13 days ago

      My mistake, UEFA deadline is the 25th (today).

    3. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'm surprised they haven't starting allowing full contact training yet. That needs to happen before going straight into proper games.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        Remember reading somewhere at tail end of last week that gvt approval for full contact could be this week

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          The Oracle that is The Daily Mirror are all over it today anyway:

          https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/premier-league-clubs-resume-contact-22080870

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

            • 10 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            "The Premier League's return has moved a step closer as clubs have been given the green light to resume full contact training again.

            Under new guidelines released on Monday, sports teams are now permitted to train in larger groups as phase two of the UK government's plan was announced.

            The move has been made in support of proposals to complete the current season, with a restart pencilled in for some time next month.

            Government guidance read: "Stage Two training can be described as the resumption of close-contact [interaction within the two-metre social-distancing boundary] training where pairs, small groups and/or teams will be able to interact in much closer contact [e.g. close quarters coaching, combat sports sparring, teams sports tackling, technical equipment sharing, etc]."

            6 months, 12 days ago

            Makes sense. I would have presumed they would need to start full contact training, then give it a week or so to see what the results of the coronavirus tests are like during full contact and then make a decision on full games. Or they could still put a provisional date in place I suppose.

              • 1 Year
              6 months, 12 days ago

              Don't they need to set a provisional date by today?

                • 10 Years
                6 months, 12 days ago

                Yeah. And I haven't heard anything different since so presumably it still stands.

    At what point are you planning to use the Free Hit in vFPL? Not sure about what's the best way to take full advantage of it.

    1. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 13 days ago

      Use it when a lot of teams have an easy fixture and/or most of the players you currently own have a hard fixture. Sure there is a bit of luck involved (my FH team somehow got 110 points), but you can definitely get a similar score if you pick just the right players.

      If I still had my FH I would actually consider using it in GW25 and getting double (or even triple) City just for that juicy fixture versus West Ham.

    Pukki or Wood for a one-week punt before I WC in 25?

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Pukki

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Pukki

  13. Nomar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    6 months, 12 days ago

    Got 2 FT and £1.4 ITB in vFPL.

    Might do Calvert Lewin to Pukki with the first. That would give me a Cantwell/Pukki double up.

    Hope you guys are all fine and healthy. Just a little bit of an update on #ChampManFPL

    Those that aren't playing, its FPL based on a simulation in Championship Manager 01/02. I cannot recommend this game enough. They now have an FPL style website - http://www.fantasychampman.com/ and are starting a second half of the season league (in 2 weeks).

    Follow their main Twitter account - @fantasychampman

    There's a Sky Style video stream on matchdays as well. I'm absolutely enjoying this game.

    In case you're thinking of joining, i've put together a beginner's guide here:

        1. BNMC
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Plenty of highs and lows just like the real game, trying to cement a place in the top 100.

          I'm getting a strange sensation that Aguero will blow up soon, which reminded me of you...

      Was enjoying it until I took out r
      Rebrov for Fowler for a hit. Sweet 30 point swing right there. The guys running this have been class though.

      1. Lateriser 12
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Ooof that must've heart. Bottomline never trust the pool (in champman)

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          Only been playing that game best part of 20 years as well. Even watched the scoutcast which said categorically do not sell rebrov. Dgw hype doesn't really exist in this game does it.

    Bank holiday Monday.

    Sitting down to enjoy a freshly baked scout article and ........ Nowt. Even though it is nearly midday.

    Frustrating.

      Been a while since you wrote a community article. Have you got one in the works? That is what we need to help us through lockdown.

        I get this a lot. So much love for my work especially on Social media. Many people are calling for FFS to get me on the payroll.

        I've recently cracked the VFPL algorithm. I'm thinking about writing up my findings in a new article.

              As an elite manager I felt that maybe it would be beneath me. I'm used to defeating millions of other managers. Scaling that down and just defeating a couple of thousand is a step down.

    Iain Watson from BBC news fails to social distance when asking the PM about why Cummings didn't social distance: https://images.app.goo.gl/1htYk8Hc89QiUXN27

    It took him and a small team of staff several attempts to unmute his laptop at the government press conference yesterday.

    This was a new low for the British press holding the government to account.
