Michael Coone crowned 2020/21 FPL champion

A dramatic end to the 2020/21 Fantasy Premier League season culminated with Michael Coone being crowned the overall winner.

Michael’s team, Teddy Bears Utd, began the afternoon in third place but the final-day captaincy of Sadio Mane helped the new champion overhaul Mohamad Abdallah (7amodi) and Ola Hovde (Rett i lomma).

Double-digit hauls from Ederson and Vladimir Coufal also contributed to the ascent to first place.

Ola, who topped the table in 23 Gameweeks across two different spells, plummeted from 1st to 10th following a Gameweek score of 49 (after hits).

That is Ola’s lowest rank since Gameweek 7.

Mohamad began and finished the day in second, ending up five points adrift of first place.

Viktor Johansson (iC0p) took bronze, with a Gameweek 38 score of 94 points elevating the Swede from 14th to 3rd.

FANTASY FOOTBALL SCOUT LEAGUE

Our Fantasy Football Scout league was an even tighter affair.

Pandin Bruyne (Championez FC) and Ray Freeman (Norfolk Enchancers) ended up tied on 2,632 points, with the former sealing the title having made fewer transfers.

Robert Tuck (VARsity Blues) and Thomas Lumley (Boogie Pete) also finished level on points in the race for third, with Robert edging it again thanks to less activity in the transfer market.

Tenth-place Craig S (Only put Matip in) deserves a shout-out, too, having handed the armband to the Gameweek’s highest scorer – Pablo Fornals – and passing the 100-point mark.

FANTASY FOOTBALL SCOUT MEMBERS LEAGUE

Robert Tuck (VARsity Blues) added the Fantasy Football Scout Members league trophy to his third-place finish in the open league.

Robert finished 10 points clear of Nathan Jobling (LEJ Utd), while Matt Carvel (Cancelo Culture) jumped up to third on the final weekend.

All of our top 10 captained Mohamed Salah in Gameweek 38.

    Asked this before I know, but the the suspense is killing me 🙂

    How long does it 'usually' take to update the fpl tally? GMT+5 here and usually check the scores the next day

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      8.2 million players.

      About 10 hours.

      Autosubs have now been made, so probably only another half hour or so.

      ML standings will take longer.

      Cheers for the top of page standing from the mods 🙂 +1

      Time for bed then, I'll check in the morning.

      Best of luck boys & girls. Have a good summer!

    Can't believe I only had Kane in 3 gwks

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Wow, that’s the reason for your rank in the end I guess.
      Top goalscorer, most assists and only a couple of Bruno for top spot in the end

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I didn’t have him in any. Was trying out an England team vs rest of the world team. No decent strikers all season!

    Fixtures aside I think I already know whos going into my teams next season.

    Yours?

    1. JJeyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      no, because fixtures are the most important factor

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Need prices and positions, and we all say that now but there are always surprises

    3. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Depends on prices.

      But would be interested in Arsenal players with no European football. Bale if he signs for a PL club as he is a top player. Norwich showed enough in the Championship to suggest they could be a better than average promoted club. I suspect Ancelotti will improve Everton, but I would not want to see wholesale changes (just a few additions to give them more creativity and defensive organisation).

      How inconsiderate and ignorant of West Brom to score that pointless goal earlier!

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Cost me my ML 🙁

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Just out of interest, which players from your GW1 team were in your GW38 one?
      For me, 5:

      Kane
      Son
      Salah
      Trent

      And finally (and surprisingly) the points dodger himself, ASM

      1. Hazz
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Just Salah & Trent here.

      2. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Just TAA and Salah for me.

      3. Keeptrying
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Only Salah and TAA, though they were sold and bought back in between.

      4. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Salah and Trent. And, most importantly...

        TYRICK MITCHELL!!!

      5. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Just Salah and TAA. And I bought TAA on the final day.

      6. Toughie
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I was horrified to see Adams, Mitrovic & ASM in my team. I knew back then they would be frauds but still choose them

      7. A-L
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        TAA and Son

      8. BeWater
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Only Salah. And I captained him 17 times.

        1. BeWater
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Actually and TAA.

      9. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Had a dodgy starting team but Dallas was there at the start and the end

      10. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        TAA, Salah and Son

      11. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Salah, Robertson, Trent

      12. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        TAA Salah Mitchell ... just shocked I had Alli and Egan as well!

      13. KAALI_DAAL
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Salah and Mitchell

        I am in a really tight mini league. I made up 41 pts with my bench boost but I am not sure if my -12 pts hits have been taken off or not. The rules say they are taken off at the start of the gameweek but I don’t think they have been. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE

          Just add 29 to your points total from last week

          Unlucky mate, I know the feeling. Dallas losing his cs cost me too

      17. thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        85k finish. Actually really happy with that after very poor finishes in last few seasons.

        I have young kids so I wasn’t as ‘on it’ in those last few seasons. But I really put my all into this season and feel 85k is a respectable (by no means spectacular!) OR.

        But one thing I noticed this year is that it’s super hard to gain rank and easy as hell to lose it.
        The standard of players has risen incredibly in recent years, and the data and advice available has raised the bar considerably.

        To get into the top 10k nowadays requires not only for you to be an excellent manager, but also to get an immense amount of luck.

        I’m done until FPL opens again.

        It’s been a joy chaps. Hope to see you all on the flip side 🙂

        1. pricycle
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Definitely agree the overall standard has improved. Had my worst season in eleven years (will be something like 200k) despite not really doing anything differently. I finished in 715th last year by comparison - that was definitely down to luck!

      18. Casual Player
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Congrats to the OR winner, big move captaining Mane. I tinkered with the idea but didn’t have the balls.

          Captaining Fornals is next level though. Genius? Lunacy? Accidental mouse click? I hope we never find out.

          Thanks to all the commenters here, there’s some great insights if you look in amongst all the A/B posts

        • Nightcrawler

          That kane handball assist costing me a top 10k finish

          Sure do not love to see it oh no i dont

          Edinson Cavani wins goal of the season right?

          1. Collie01
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I think there were better ones.

            Foden's goal last week should be in the conversation. Picked up the ball in his own half, dribbled brilliantly and a lovely finish. Wider range of skills shown than Cavani's goal imo.

          2. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years

            Lanzini vs Spurs surely

            Can't give it to him. Shouldn't have counted as good as it was.

          Gutted i didn't go with my gut to go baws deep and Captain Mane instead of Salah. Cost me my ML as a result. Sad times.

          What are the best tools for analysing your FPL season, in terms of your individual team, mini leagues etc.

          FPL Live doesn't seem to be working too well for me. FPL Gameweek has that useful graph to show league leaders.

          Has a high team value helped anyone for the last game week? Would be great to hear some stories.

          It has surely helped me to get to second place in my cash ML and jump 40k rank to 87K. Had a TV of 107.6 which helped me bring in Mane along side Salah and Kane for the final GW.

              Nice, my highest was 937 in GW29, ended up around 6.5k-7k.
              From GW3 onwards I was ever present in the top 10k which surprised me!

            If Leeds held on to a clean sheet I would’ve won my mini league, watching the highlights to see the goal was a terrible error makes it hard to swallow 🙁

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              All things that happened throughout the season contributed to that so don't bother yourself with that particular goal 🙂 Lost my minileague by 1 point two years ago so I feel you.

                2 months, 12 days ago

                Yes I know what you mean, I’m sure there were plenty of occasions I got dodgy assists go my way, dubious penalties, and VAR tight offside calls against my opposition

                Puts it well into perspective. Hope you had a good season

            I understand everyone is focused on their one season. But can we all take a moment of silence to Ola Hovde??

            1.st place in 24 GWs and a 10.th place finish... Ouch. This one is for you, Ola!

Got a little burnt out playing this and Eliteserien but I am not doing this this season so not myself a break 🙂

            Went -12 with Mane captain. With hits was like 140k, but anything other than at least top 100k wasn't really a big deal so whats the point if captain Salah but stay at the same rank. Luckily managed to sneak another top 100k with 87k finish and a fifth consecutive top 100k. I'm pretty happy with that considering I don't spend too much time every week on FPL. and this season has been very hard.

            Congratulations to everyone who went Mane captain because they weren't afraid to chase or lose already impressive rank such as this seasons FPL winner. Fully deserved.

            Thanks to all for the helpful comments throughout the season.

            Ended up finishing 78k which I'm actually very chuffed with considering I slipped to over 650k rank by mid season.

            Since then I've managed 14 green arrows and just 3 small reds. Far from my strongest finishing rank but all things considered a decent season.

            Here's to next year!
