In 2020, our year of the new normal, it is great that we still have an ”old normal” which we’re familiar with-The world of Fantasy Premier League. One in which you keep a player for four gameweeks and get nothing in return, and as soon as you sell him, he starts hauling double digits in points. A world in which you have 4 unusable players on the bench scoring almost as many points as your starting 11. And a world in which Pep Guardiola continues his quest to screw over millions of FPL managers each gameweek. Ah, the sweet relief of normality.
Welcome to your penultimate edition of the FPL update on all our leagues. We start off with recognising the FPL manager who broke free of all entanglements in June to maintain very sufficient social distancing. Round of applause for our Manager of the Month, Ovy Anwuri and his Ikwerre Bombers. With a total of 278 points in June, he showed how prepared he was for Project Restart maintaining his reputation as one of the most consistent FPL managers in our leagues.
Top 5 for June
- Ovy Anwuri – Ikwerre Bombers 278 pts (League 2A)
- Adesola Adigun – Not F Relegating 270 pts (League 1)
- Sunday Ogunniyi – Raiola=Obuko/Ewu 267 pts (League 2A)
- Anslem Odey – 1 in 8 Billion 258 pts (League 2A)
- Dayo Ogungbe – DynamixxFC 255 pts (League 1)
In our League 1, some teams are already down and out a la Norwich. Some teams are still hanging in there by the skin of their teeth like Bourne-mouth. Others are on the beach already with no top 10 finish in sight and no threat of relegation, Crystal Palace style. At the top end of all our classic league tables and classic draft league, a Liverpool fan is leading the way, trying to emulate his club’s ”Champions of Everything” mantra 🙂
The Head to Head Leagues could not proceed to conclusion via the pre-programmed knockout stages. So we would use the final table stated on the website to declare the winner based on points accrued. Similar would be done for the Draft Head to Head League. Champions of the Head to Head Leagues would be announced alongside all other Champions in our final update after gameweek 38.
So with two gameweeks to go, it is now or never for some of the managers trying to gain promotion from Leagues 2A and 2B, or those trying to avoid relegation from League 1. Those who intend to crack the prestigious Top 10 in League 1 also have a final roll of the dice, just like those trying to win the 1000 dollar top prize in our Footie Fantasy Money League. Below are the images of the current tables after gameweek 36.
Reminder – Bottom 15 get relegated from League 1 (Positions 26-40). The Top 7 from each of League 2A and 2B get promoted, in addition to the higher placed 8th team from either of those.
The final lap is upon us, let’s go!!
