So my people it is over! Another eventful BPL and FPL season is finished and in the final month of the competition, Robert Simmons with his team HaRl3m5HAk3 has triumphed over the course of three Gameweeks amassing 223 points. For his choice of jersey, Robert has selected a Bayern Munich 3rd kit Muller 25. Well done to Robert for a strong finish which also ensured an overall third placing in the league. Overall winner of the league is Rene Ribiero with his team BESBRAHN FC followed by Joel Rochard with his side Real Skinner Park. Heartiest congratulations to all the prize winners including the monthly jersey prize winners since last August. Let us now take a look at Robert’s tactics for the month of May.
Some very canny moves by Robert helped him claim the last prize on offer in the face of some stiff competition. In double Gameweek 36 Robert totalled a massive 107 points (a century that the great Brian Lara would be proud of). Captain Bale with 24 points, Hart(15) and Walcott and Kone with 11 apiece were the high point earners of HaRl3m5HAk3. For Gameweek 37 Robert made a solitary transfer selling Berbatov and getting the in form Danny Sturridge. 64 points was the result on this occasion with Sturridge(17), Captain Walcott(16) and Hart(7) being the ‘high men’. In preparation for GW 38 the ‘Afroman’ Fellaini was sacrificed for the acquisition of the form midfielder Coutinho. This proved to be another profitable move for Robert as Coutinho garnered 10 points. This point tally was matched by Mata and Bale with Vertonghen chipping in with 8 points. HaRl3m5HAk3 GW 38 total ending up on 52 points in the process sealing an impressive May prize win.
The inaugural FPL Prize League ended in style and what a ride it was. There were so many twists and turns and a lot of ‘picong’ was shared among participants. The possibility of winning a monthly jersey prize certainly kept things interesting for all regardless of league position and already there is much anticipation amongst players for next season. Word has spread and there are already willing players who would like to enter for the second year of the league. Kudos to the organizers for the running of the league and there are already plans to make it bigger and better.
