FPL Vibes Prize League Season Roundup – 2014/15

As we continue to digest the wealth of international football on offer, and with many football aficionados already looking forward to the upcoming Barclays Premier League season, we take a look back at the top finishers in last season’s edition of the FPL Vibes Prize League.

Congratulations to the winner of the FPL Vibes Prize League 2014-15, Omar Romero with his team Sporting Pelau FC. After suffering a tough start to the season, the Pelau saw a change of fortune in October with a solid month that propelled him into the League Top 25 and earned him the October monthly prize. Consistent returns through January and February kept him around the Prize League top 10, and he made his charge through April to rise to the top spot. A tense battle ensued during the run-in with the league changing hands among the top 5 multiple times, but a strong final month in which he claimed his second monthly prize allowed Omar to prevail and claim the grand prize of an Apple MacBook Air and FPL Vibes Trophy.

Omar finished the 2014-15 BPL Fantasy League with a grand total of 2,333 points and an overall rank of 273 in the world. He also finished 1st amongst all players from Trinidad and Tobago making this his best ever performance in the game.

 In second place was Ian Emamalie with his team Power Rangers FC.  Ian too enjoyed a stellar season, with a steady start and impressive returns that saw him near the summit at the halfway point of the season. His consistent form saw him cop the December Monthly Prize and he maintained his measured approach saw him battling in the top 5 for the majoriy of the season, occupying the top spot at various stages. His best season ever saw QPR faithful Ian finish with an overall rank of 800 as well as 2nd place in Trinidad and Tobago to claim the second prize of an Apple IPad 5 Air.

Our second runner up was Darryl Celestine with his team Manuvelona. Darryl’s season was a tale of two halves. A rough start to the season saw Darryl mired in the FPL Vibes Prize League wilderness during the first half of the season and well into January. However, the veteran FPL performer was able to turn it around during the run in with some bold and aggressive moves that saw him storm up the table to gatecrash the top 5 in April. His late season blitz saw him claim the April Monthly Prize and finished strongly down the home stretch to claim the 3rd place prize of a Sony Playstation 4.

Rounding out the top 5 was Curtis Marshall with his team Milanista and Aidan Ali with his team CescDrogs&Roque Roll. Curtis enjoyed yet another superb season, racing out to the front of the Prize League in the early half of the season and never dropping out of the top 10 places. Curtis claimed the monthly prizes for both September and February, and his 4th place finished earned him the prize of an Amazon Kindle Fire 7″. Aidan enjoyed a strong season progressing steadily from the start of the season and was a consistent fixture in the top 5 from January onwards. Aidan’s 5th place copped him the prize of an  Official Club Jacket of choice. He chose an Arsenal FC Youth Retro Club Jacket.

Thanks to all competitors who participated in the FPL Vibes Prize League 2014-15. Follow us on Twitter @fplvibes to see some pics of our prize winners.

The 2015-16 edition of the FPL Vibes Prize League promises to be the biggest yet. Details to come shortly!!

FPL Vibes Prize League Roundup – April

The penultimate month in the Barclays Premier League brings us our ninth monthly prize winner in the FPL Vibes Prize League. The winner of the April monthly prize winner is Darryl Celestine with his team Manuvelona. For his choice of jersey, Darryl has selected a Manchester United Home Di Maria 7 Size Large from our official kit supplier Red Mango Kits.

A barnstorming month sees Darryl gatecrash the prize positions as the Manuvelona soars to 5th place in the FPL Vibes Prize League. Ian Emamalie with his team Power Rangers FC reclaims top spot closely followed by Omar Romero with his Sporting Pelau FC.  Just behind is Curtis Marshall with the Milanista occupying third place with Aidan Ali and the creatively titled CescDrogs&Roque Roll holding on in fourth spot. We are firmly in the business end of the season and it’s a fierce race at the top with just four gameweeks left in the 2014/15 season. But lets take a closer look at how Darryl nabbed the prize for April.

The month got off to a blistering start for Darryl in gameweek 31 – a week which featured a double gameweek for both Aston Villa and QPR. For the double, Darryl rolled the dice bringing in Benteke and Phillips for Aguero and Elia to devastating effect. A mammoth 118 point return on deck with main contributors being captain Benteke (46), Phillips (20), Sanchez (13), Hazard (13), Giroud (7) and Rose (6).

With the double gameweek out of the way, reasoning that he had served his purpose, out went Phillips for Mane in gameweek 32. The return was a modest 48 points supplemented by Alderweireld (9), Benteke (8), Ospina (7) and Hazard (6). For gameweek 33, a number of teams had blank fixtures forcing two transfers to be used for gameweek 33 with Aguero being brought back alongside Murray to replace Benteke and Giroud. This time around, the ten man Manuvelona brought home 47 points. Main scorers were captain Aguero (12), Hazard (11) and Kane (6).

Gameweek 34 was probably the most anticipated round of the season with double gameweeks for Chelsea, Liverpool, Leicester City and Hull on offer. Several managers used the opportunity to “buss” their wildcards while others planned well in advance. With his wildcard in play, a revamped Manuvelona was unfurled to obliterate the April challengers in the final week of April. A superb 105 point return was not too far off the overall highest for the round and was obtained courtesy of out-of-the-box pick N’Doye (15), Vardy (12), McShane (12), Azpilicueta (11), Mignolet (11), Morgan (10), Fabregas (8) and captain Hazard (10).

Whether or not to hold on to a wildcard for later in the season is a source of great debate among Fantasy League managers worldwide, but Darryl’s April accomplishment provided a big in favour of. He exploited the two double gameweeks in April to maximum effect and was especially well rewarded for showing faith in differential players – Phillips and Benteke in gameweek 31 and N’Doye and McShane in gameweek 34 were truly inspired selections. Congratulations again to Darryl on his prize win for April.

Only four gameweeks left in this the final month of the season and just the one monthly prize left up for grabs. At the top of the standings, it’s too close to call as managers slug it out for the Grand Prizes. Who will prevail? Who will falter? Will there be a dark horse? All this and more to come in a few weeks in our Season Recap.

Can you feel the Vibes?
