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.

    I’m gutted I came 2nd by a slim margin in my ML but upon reflection I’ve had my highest ever OR finish at 7k!!

    I encourage anyone in a similar situation, see the positives, enjoy the post season, and see you all for pre season!!

    🙂

      Well said, Salty.

      Great rank, it's been a tough season.

      I finished second to a guy that came 743rd in main minileague.

      46k overall and still won most of my minileague. 7k is awesome.

      Good outlook, and well done on a great season. Enjoy the break

    150k gw 29

    Finished 10900

    Smashed the last 9 gameweeks and won my mini league by 1 point.

    Leader was top 10k for the last 7 weeks and 100 points clear a few weeks back.

    Never say never

    Last 2 seasons 23k and 15k, this season 10.3 k, it feels like I will never reach that top 10k spot, very frustrating !!!
    Overhaul I really enjoyed the season though.
    Have a nice summer all 🙂

    Another year down. A quick thank you for advice.

    Was -15pts behind at start of the day and ended up level on pts and winning on transfers made. That’s 4 years in a row finishing top of my ML as a result.

    I haven’t been top any day of the season except today.

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Saving your best work for the end. Well done!

      Is it just me, or are the worst takes in this comments section usually like, "[insert team here] looked really bad last week, surely you don't want to keep them any longer"? Like Spurs in GW38. As if one week of very bad performance guarantees a continuation of it.

      Going to try hard to tune out this type of takes next season. One match doesn't make a trend.

      1. The Mighty One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Yup...good point. These players are pros and they don't like being embarrassed either, so there is often a bounceback.

    • Tcheco
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Overturned a 31 point deficit to win my ML thanks to Mane(C). Horrible season but ended on a high. See you guys when fixtures are announced 🙂

      1. DavidHopkin

        Nice!

    • nicecat
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Anyone else thinks that neither overall rating nor total points are a good representative of how well you really did compared to previous seasons? I believe that some sort of percentile would give us a better picture. Any experts?

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Certainly not total points, but overall rank is a consistently good indicator, with top 10k the general benchmark used for having had a very good season

        1. nicecat
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I agree that top 10k is an indicator of an incredible season, but isn't it a greater achievement now that it was 5 seasons ago with much less players in the game back then?
          This is probably just me trying to take something positive from my amazing top 216k season.

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Just OR

      3. DA Minnion (In Bielsa we tr…
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Points mean nothing. I got my highest ever total in points this year in 11 but only 9.5 K overall. I've had a 3 K finish in the past with far less.

          Yesss, thank you! I believe this metric should be integrated into the game, absolutely tells more than OR.

          1. Keeptrying

      Incredible week for an amazing chap in our league. He dropped off a few weeks ago after getting in Aguero early. But he grabbed a brace today and he transferred in Pepe and Chambers and captained Pepe to get 98 points and win the league.

      I have not made this type of brag comment before, but just a quick one:

      Today is my best rank of the year. Started poorly at about OR 3 million, and then I got 27 green arrows on the way to 92K today. I briefly cracked 100K two weeks ago, then fell out last week, then jumped up to 92K to end the season today. Happy with that.

      Thanks to all of you as I really enjoy this community and the fun of these battles!

        Begin preparatory gloating in anticiption. Dripfeed the gloat for maximum impact and annoyance.

        Think they would work overtime on the final day to ensure it gets updated swiftly. The leagues updating at like half 2 doesn't have the same satisfaction to it

    • PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Thanks for your company and advice again this season, all.

      Having only been just inside 3m after GW6, I gradually inched my way back to 10k. And most importantly for me this season, won my big ML!

      Since getting into this properly on here, it’s been 58k, 14.5k and 10.4k for me. Fingers crossed for four figures next season.

      But before then, a break from all this. Hope you all enjoy the chance to step away and clear heads after a long and exhausting season.

      Thanks and take it easy!

      Worst move of the year.....week 2 went Son and Kane to Martial and Rashford for a minus 4. The former scored 45 points, the latter 4.

      Top that!

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I feel for you mate.

        After the past year of experience, we now know Spurs are just a very inconsistent team who can do very well or very badly in any fixture. I was slow to get on Spurs at the beginning, but overall I think I managed their assets fairly well, without a lot of swapping them in and out. They're an asset to buy and HODL (as the meme goes), or else avoid.

      2. duledj
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Son and Kane to Martial and Bruno for minus -8. Ha! But good to know I am not the only one. I was like "how to delete damn account", but eventually continued to play, and won my ML today despite 150 pts deficit at some point of the season.

          91k rank this year, first time I’ve cracked the 100k and I want thank everyone for all the help I got on here in achieving that. I’ve taken quite a few hits along the way so would you say the secret to improving now is to take far less hits, even when tempted?

            Well done.

            Hits are weird. I only took one hit this season and got my best ever rank. I did get lucky with injuries, but at the same time I regularly had 2FT's to sort out problems when they happened.

            I planned in advance to get people I'd know I wanted, and if I couldn't do that I would just go without. Just seemed to work out really well.

            1. AshtonJ
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Appreciate the reply and something to think about for sure next season. Punting on hits because of a double game week or to cheer yourself up, or being reactive to a bad performance and planning ahead I will work on.

          Thanks to anyone who gave me advice throughout the season on here. Hope everyone had a good season.

          Thanks for what turned out to be a funny old season folks. Thanks to all that gave me some advise when needed and vice versa too! Ended up winning my ML by 48pts and ended up finishing in the top 100K with an Overall Scotrre of 86K. Congrats to the winners and see you all back again for pre-season. Whoop!!!!
