3rd Place Finish

Postby KingMonkey » Sat Jun 09, 2018 2:50 pm

For anyone that's interested, here's the history of Nicole Lauren 15, which provided me with my best ever finish in TFF.

Firstly a massive thank you to Yorkie who I bombarded with Pm's over the last month or so, still think I might have won had you not talked me out of a Liverpool block defence :grin:

I entered 15 teams this year which was hard work to manage until each dropped off. Personally i still feel that it gave me enough teams to vary my starting 11 to hopefully get a few off to a flier.

Starting X1 - De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Dawson, KDB, Fabregas, Tadic, Zaha, Salah, Lakaku, Jesus.

Initial thoughts were that Man U would be tight at the back and had a nice start, pretty sure WBA had an easy start and Dawson is a set piece threat. Saints again I think had a nice set of opening games hence Tadic, although he is very streaky. Fancied Fabregas to get plenty of KC's and think it's was his end of season form that prompted me to put him in.

18-8- Fabregas - Stephens - Great start for Fab as sent off
Zaha - Mane - Zaha injured

26- 8 - Lakaku - Kane

09-9 - Mane - Pogba

16-9 - Stephens - Doucoure
Pogba - Vardy

30-9 - Tadic - Ramsey

14- 10 - Bailly- Alonso

26- 10 - Dawson - Ward

04 -11 - Vardy - Ali

29 - 11 - De Gea - Courtois
Valencia - Christensen
Ali - Morata

02 - 12 - Jesus - Hazard

10 - 12 - Ramsey - Sterling

13 - 12 - Ward- Kenny
Morata - Sanchez

26 - 12 - Kane - Firmino

02 -01 - Salah - Arunotovic
Firmino - Aguero

04 - 01 - Sanchez - Kane

22 - 01 - Hazard - Salah
Arunotovic- Firmino

31 - 01 - Firmino - Hazard

04 - 02 - KDB - Son

16 - 02 - Hazard - Mahrez

24 - 02 - Sterling- Mane

25 - 02 - Kenny - Davies

03 - 03 - Kane - Firmino

05 - 03 - Aguero- Lakaku

11 - 03 - Firmino - Kane

17 - 03 - Kane - Firmino

18 - 03 - Davies - Azpi

01 - 04 - Lakaku - Abameyang

07 - 04 - Mane- Willian
Firmino - Kane

15 - 04 - Abameyang- Lakaku

23 - 04 - Mahrez - Hazard
Son - Jesus
Lakaku - Jesus

Final X1 - Courtois, Azpi, Christensen, Alonso, Sterling, Doucoure,Hazard, Willian, Salah, Kane, Jesus.

As always when you look at these teams, the transfers made you wonder how the he'll you diddnt win it yourself!

At the end of the day it's about hitting the right players at the right time.

I will try to add a bit more if I get time but not sure how I can get overall position of the team each month.
