FFS Cup

The winners of our FFS Cup competitions revealed

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.

The third-place play-off was won by Jambo17, who won 112-106 against FPL Bielsa.

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

The 2020/21 FFS Members Cup champion is Mohd Rodzi, who beat EUG 132-121.

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 third-place play-off was won by Rossaldinho, who triumphed 122-100 over SUNFLOWER

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.

        Leicester Pool Chelsea will be playing their strongest teams.

        Hard to say. Maybe Ferran Torres or Wood. Telles?

        Would you change anything here?
        I'd like to have a Chelsea attacker but no idea who will play. Mount for Lingard?

        Ederson
        Trent Dallas Lowton
        Salah Mane Torres Lingard
        Kane Antonio Bamford

          Depends if it’s for free or a hit

              I’d go Chelsea defender and maybe switch Torres. Not sure he’ll start. I think Leeds will pump West Brom so maybe a treble up.

              1. cigan
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Thanks, was all set on Rudiger (for Lowton) but Grealish back concerns me a bit - it's an easy switch tho

                Not sure on Torres vs. Foden either. On one hand, Torres played 15mins last match (Foden & Mahrez 90), on the other hand, its a title celebrating game with fans back + training for the final - could as easily be the strongest team

                WBA score most matches these days so I'd only consider Raphinha for a triple up. But prefer Che/City mid tbf

        Shouldn’t the GW38 captaincy poll be up already FFS?!

          Yeah, it's been 12 hours since GW37 finished already! I'll demand the person responsible is sacked immediately.

        Have 2FT to use... don't need to make any changes in my midfield or forwards.
        Would you do,
        Burn, Forster -> N.Phillips, Casilla

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Why not

        No GW38 pressers today, by the looks of it - all 20 set for tomorrow (subject to change).

        Well done to the winners!

        What do you think to these moves?
        Son, Jota, DCL to
        Mane, Raphinha, Antonio (-4)

        Mendy Forster
        TAA Shaw Dallas Coufal Holding
        Salah Son Greenwood Lingard Jota
        Kane DCL Vydra

        1. Inter Me Gran
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I’d keep Son as you have Salah

          1. CJ_Wright
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Son looked absolutely out on his legs against Villa. Not a single shot or chance created either so stats back it up. Honestly, Son is a 2 point stinker waiting to happen

        2. DavvaMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Alright Lads

          Not sure if the below are good moves.

          A. DCL > Bamford + Son > Mane -4
          B. DCL > Antonio + Son > Mane - 4
          C. DCL > Bamford > Iheanacho > Antonio -4

          Thanks

            i'd just to DCL to Bam or Antonio no hit

          Who's most likely to start Mahrez or Greenwood?

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Mahrez for me without any idea.

          Last chance push...

          Fernandes, Bale and Cancelo > Salah, Raphinha and TAA for a -8?

          Cheers

          DCL greenwood Digne Fernandes to Rodrigo Salah Robertson Torres (-12) worth it?

            • 6 Years

              Let's face it, this a yolo. If you're not bothered being 400K end of the year (it's only a game eh) bloody go for it. Boom or bust

              Leading by 7 in mini-league, NEED YOUR HELP!

              Second has benchboost. Do I target hauls or block their players?

              1FT
              £0.4m ITB

              My team:

              Mendy (Pickford)
              TAA, Dallas, Holding (Shaw, Fofana)
              Salah, Mount, Mahrez, Son (McTominay)
              DCL, Antonio, Watkins

              Their team:

              Martinez (Schmeichal)
              Shaw, Cancelo, Cresswell (AWB, Castagne)
              Greenwood, Lingard, Raphinha, Son (Harrison)
              Antonio, Kane, Bamford

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                He's got Cancelo, AWB, Shaw not playing, and possibly Greenwood so he has to take a few hits to BB. Plus he hasn't got Salah or TAA so it looks difficult for him to catch you, unless Kane hauls! Think I would probably do DCL to Bamford, as Leeds could haul vs WBA. If you wanted to take a hit you could cover one of his Leeds midfielders as well with Mctom out. That would allow you to bench Fofana. My $ would be on you to win! Klopp also said a slim chance Jota plays, so that may also be an option if positive news comes out. Twitter also seems confident that the Man U team will get leaked, so you could wait until the last minute to see if you want to block Greenwood.

              Hey Guys - Who's the best defender pick (up to 5.7m) you can think of for the final gw?

              I have Cresswell, R.James, Tierney, Philips, maybe a city def? But nobody really screams out clean sheet and attacking potential (I know if I had a bit more cash I could go Robbo), but would love to hear any other ideas??

                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  Damn I love Chilwell this week but he's £5.9m.

                  Think Dallas if you don't have him! Leeds are flying and he's on some set pieces now

                Have a 5pt lead over two rivals in my ML , one has Bamford and the other Nacho. I can switch DCL for one...but which one?! Thanks.

                  Whats the go with Bruno?

                  Will he not play in GW38 then? Lots shipping for Mane on previous thread?

                    Be careful not to get tunnel vision of just those on here. Might seem like everyone and their dog is shipping for mane on here but in reality he's only been sold by 30k people so far, so thats not very many. I'd say his EO will still be 70%. I think he still starts to be honest and then comes off early. Not knocking Mane to be honest, he could do well

                      Roger that - Didnt really want to ship him as I have had pretty much all season lol.

                      I have other pressing matters like getting rid of DCL and also possibly Konsa or Ward to Phillips too.

                        Oh yeah for sure I'd sort DCL out over Bruno. It's more of a luxury move really isnt it, ditching Bruno. I've looked at it too but I want Bamford so he's more important than ditching Bruno really, and sorting out a defender as I have either Digne or Shaw who will be blanks really

                          I'm tempted to play Digne.... I benched Shaw and Dallas for their Man City away guaranteed blanks..... 14 and 17 pointers... it still hurts!!!

                      I’m likely keeping depending on Ole’s presser. He has been their best player & probably the best player in the league this season, I don’t think Ole will bench him & Wolves are terrible

                    I am 5 points behind in my Mini League. One FT. Grateful for advice.

                    a) Bruno to Mane (poss captain, we both have Salah)
                    b) DCL to Antonio (or Wood to block)
                    c) Shaw or Godfrey to Dallas (block).

                    Mane or Antonio would be differentials. Don't want to take a hit.

                    I wouldn't advice you to "touch" your teams before the press conferences

                    Thinking -4

                    Godfrey & Jota > Robbo & Willock?

                    Play Bruno instead of Willock in case he plays?

                    Martinez
                    Trent, Dallas, Robbo
                    Son, Salah, Lingz, Willock
                    Antonio, Kane, Bamford

                    Button, #Bruno, #Shaw, Thomas,

                    What will you choose ?
                    A) Play Nacho
                    B) DCL to Bamford for a hit (Have Raph)
                    C) DCL to Antonio for a hit (Have Lingard)
