Its been a long and winding road. There’s been plenty of highs and too many lows, but after a decent penultimate gameweek, I find myself back with a double-digit rank. This is a quick post with some season reflections and a captaincy poll for the final showdown.

Captaincy poll

 

 

One final decision and I’m playing it safe. It’s a bit boring, but Salah is the man for me. If I was chasing a mini-league or wanting to break the top 100, I’d probably look elsewhere, but everything points to the Egyptian.

Lesson’s learned

I’m going to put this here as a reminder to myself for next year to obey the following three rules:

  1. The Ramsey rule. Don’t get him. It’s these type of players who are frustrating in Sky. In theory, they are good value, bonus magnets and rack up points. Yet, it’s too good to be true. They always get injured. I dread to think how many transfers I have wasted on injured payers this season, but it seems like a lot. You could say it’s unlucky, but opting for injury-prone players like Ramsey (I had him at least twice, possibly thrice) is asking for trouble.
  2. The Aguero rule. This one relates to team flexibility and being able to draft in any player with minimal effort and transfers. Regular readers will know that not owning Aguero before they overhaul (because he was difficult to bring in) cost me dearly. It’s one rule I preach each season but somehow manage to forget.
  3. The Christensen rule. OK, this isn’t a rule, but all good things come in threes, so this is just a reminder not to get him next season. What a disaster he was.

Three winners on the trot for our facebook group

Our facebook group looks likely to have the overall winner for the third year running. Contributors to the group Jason and Pascal are vying for the overall crown and will possibly be revealing their teams after the deadline. The password for the group is FFH if you’re still yet to join.

How you did you get on this season? What were your lessons learned? Let me know in the comments.

There isn’t really much else to say, other than thank you for reading this far and for supporting the site. FFH will be back bigger and better than ever next season.
