Triple Gameweek 35 saw the final and third-place play-off of both our FFS Open Cup and FFS Members Cup play out, with £600-worth of prizes up for grabs in total.
The quick turnarounds between Gameweeks 35, 36 and 37 left us short of time but the respite afforded by the longer gap to Gameweek 38 allows to recap what happened in each tourmanent.
FFS OPEN CUP
Genovoze is the latest name on the FFS Open Cup trophy.
He won by a single point in a titanic 133-132 battle with Mince n Tatties, despite the latter playing his Bench Boost.
Genovoze’s captaincy of Bruno Fernandes was one key factor, with his opponent handing the armband to Mohamed Salah.
Mince n Tatties could also point to Ollie Watkins’ red card as a hard-luck story, along with a surprise no-show from Joel Veltman.
FPL Bielsa actually had fewer blanking players in Gameweek 35 but his non-ownership of Fernandes was pivotal, with Jambo17 making the Manchester United playmaker his skipper.
FFS MEMBERS CUP
With their two backlines scoring a similar number of points and each manager owning Bruno Fernandes (c), Mohamed Salah, Son Heung-min and Kelechi Iheanacho, Mohd Rodzi’s victory owed much to a Mason Greenwood haul and a more modest seven points from Jamie Vardy.
EUG’s faith in ‘single Gameweeker’ Harry Kane wasn’t rewarded, while James Ward-Prowse also flattered to deceive despite having two fixtures.
The latter played their Wildcard but a double-up on the Manchester United defence failed to pay dividends, while Ollie Watkins’ aforementioned dismissal was another FPL gut-punch.
A big well done to all our managers above.
