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.

    Well it was a pretty poor FPL season for me, finished on 70k which was actually my highest OR of the season and an improvement on a really dreadful last year. Think i must be getting old 🙂

      Just a gloat really ain’t it. Next.....

      Is 70k a gloat? It’s a decent finish, but nothing to write home about.

      It would presumably win some mini leagues, but fall short in tougher leagues.

    I think veltman to coufal on the last day has been my favourite transfer of the season

    1. Rasping Drive

      • 11 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Nice one. Rolling the dice and bringing in Mané (c), Pepe and Dallas for Bruno, Son and Digne for a -8 is definitely my favourite since I’ve been playing the game (not-so-humble brag)

      1. beric
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Lovely stuff. I'd considered a hit yesterday to completely alter my front line - turned out sticking with bale and foden was the right thing to do (also not so humble brag)

          Haha, nice one Beric, sometimes doing nothing is the best course of action. Took some balls in your case, especially with those two players, well played sir.

            Same to you, -8 for one game is super risky!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Yes, absolutely. My oppos team was 15 pts ahead before I made my trades and most of the players I wanted, he already had. Was v close to bringing in Firmino and Harrison but changed my mind last minute. Massively fortunate, but he who dares and all that.

        Had Dallas, coudn't have afforded Mane, but I nailed Pepe (c) at least.

    Takes a long time to catch on replays when every match is the same day, was so hard not to look at FPL until now.

    Both revised targets met, won main ML and scraped into to top 100k, never thought I'd be so happy to finish with a rank of 97,878 but it breaks the trend of the last two seasons being in five figures.

    Decent finish to a trying season but need to sharpen up for the next.

      Great stuff Waldo. I know what you mean about all the games happening at once. I started off watching the Leicester game, with an eye on the BBC Sport live text plus my usual WhatsApp groups. Switched to the Pool game, but when the messages came in about Pepe’s goals, I couldn’t believe my luck. Managed to overhaul a 23 point lead in one of my minileagues as well as sneak into the top 20k. Happy days.

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Awesome stuff!! My ML threat bought in Pepe and Mane this week but having a nice cushion plus bringing in Ederson last minute certainly helped, especially after I decided not to do Bruno to Mane.

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Wow, that Ederson play was inspired! I’m in a WhatsApp group with a few other addicts I met on here, one of whose mates also had Ederson in Fanteam and his penalty save won the fella the 200k - unbelievable.

      Now that the season is over, trying to analyse how hits affected our seasons.

      How many points hits did you take and what was your ending OR?

      80 points hits in total and a 105k OR for me.

      1. A.T
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        24 points in hits

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        32 points, OR 54k

        I dont think you can derive any conclusion from that though. It could be possible that hits that you have taken are the reason for that rank, without hits, your OR might have been worse. Similarly for me, maybe if I had avoided those hits, my OR could have been higher.

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Not trying to derive any definitive conclusions (which ain't possible with such limited date) but just trying to paint a simple picture. Agree with your point that sometimes hits might be the reason you see green arrows in any particular GW and vice versa, but just trying to make a simple graph of sorts of the relation between hits and OR. Nothing definitive, but like I said, just trying to paint a picture which gives a simple idea about the topic and nothing more.

        I lost out coming 2nd place in my work league to two people tied for 2nd/3rd respectively who ended up on the same points and beat me by a solitary one point. I had less transfers then both so would have finished 2nd instead of 4th and got into the cash prize.

        ......ouch. Close one! Anyone have any tighter leagues then that?

          All the dgws account for the high points this year imo. Standard is very high. Winner averaged 70.5 points per gw, which must be the best ever.

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Still the same amount of games though, for every double there's a blank. That is an outstanding average though, I must say.

          chips are changing the dynamics and there are more informed players in the top 3 million now than ever.

          My sub 60k rank needed 2420 points to get there, by far my highest points total ever
