World Cup Sign Off

Me again, just rounding off the first half of the season before we sign off for Qatar.

It was all change at the top of the Evie Dove Foundation League – previous leader Crystal Pellis tumbled to 10th with a miserable return of 33 points, whilst ‘Romford Rejects’, ‘Dan Hoare’s Heros’ and ‘Champagne Pepe’ soared into the top three places, with 54, 51 and 72 points respectively, where they will nestle until at least 28th December when GW17 completes.

Congratulations ‘Romford Rejects, what a lovely position to sit in unchallenged for the next 6 weeks, and well done for getting there despite missing out on Danny Wards 11 points – you were in good company however – an astonishing 35 teams in our league had the Leicester goalie on the bench even though all the signs were there – after 8 points in the first seven gameweeks, he has scored a massive 52 points in the next eight! 

Well done too ‘Champagne Pepe’ – high score of the week, powered by a very well played Wildcard – one of nine rolled out this week – that is nine very patient people, most of us splurged that chip long ago! 

Bench Boost was also popular this week – four of you sneaking in some extra points before the big break, with ‘Rosenior’s Rams’ the pick of the bunch, securing a very nice 18 point boost, including that man Danny Ward, enough to consolidate a place in the top ten.

However, centre stage on Chips goes to a certain ‘Scmaccaroni Cheese’, who spotted a ‘clear and obvious’ opportunity to finally topple ‘Neil Madrid’ in the Triple Captain stakes – going all in on Haaland, who would surely sign off with a hatful before his six week Christmas break, against a recently porous Brentford defence…… move ‘Scmaccaroni’………….the result…………a pathetic 31 points, with Haaland chipping in with a paltry three Triple Captain points. It goes without saying that of course you also had Danny Ward in reserve too, literally taunting you from the bench!! This is the lowest TC team score posted so far this year in the Evie Dove League – I reckon it’s almost impossible to go lower, but let’s see (when are you thinking of playing your TC chip Redmen?)

And so that’s it – the first half of this bizarre season is done, no more FPL until Boxing Day – and whilst of course you have all those unlimited transfers to enjoy, if you do want to get involved in a World Cup Fantasy League we have got one running – it’s just for fun – no prize fund on this one, but something to keep those football brains ticking over. Here is the link if you want to get involved – the league pin is EMA0VZ8F

Thanks everyone as always for your support, and all the best from all of us The Evie Dove Foundation.
