Yeah, cheers for putting that up Dan. I've played four or five FPLs but never a head to head. Sash my bitch up was my team and even though my points tally was poor this season, I was chuffed to manage third place in the head-to-head. Great fun. Unfortunately we lost Kevin Flint of Prodigy (which inspired my team name) just recently when he hanged himself, which was a big downer. I did very poorly in my own private league Goonerundermywheels, coming a lowly 7th out of 13, so the Holmesdaleship made up for that.

I'll be back next season with a new team name, I always change it.

later and saludos from Buenos Aires,
Mark


You're more than welcome, Mark! Glad you enjoyed your first experience of the head-to-head format, which is still new to a lot of people. You did exceptionally well for a newcomer, and it's nice to know you had fun along the way too, which is what it's really all about.

A lot of people were shocked by Keith Flint's untimely death, and your team name will have brought a smile to Prodigy and Palace fans alike. A fitting tribute to someone who meant so much to so many.

Wow, I had no idea you were down in Argentina! A beautiful part of the world so I understand, not to mention a football-mad one. I've never been myself, but my father spent some time there many years ago. I'm told the steaks are incredible!

Hope you have a great summer (or maybe winter where you are!), and I'll look forward to seeing you come back again next season!

Dan, this was the first time I've ever taken part in the FPL and stunned that I managed to win the Holmesdale Head to Head League as well as the league of the friend who introduced me to it. He is my postman and was always going on about it so I thought I'd give it a try, his workmates are really stressed that he invited me! It's a steep learning curve, especially double and reduced gameweek strategy, which I cocked up. My wife was also not too happy that I was watching so much football, a particular incident comes to mind when I shouted out while watching a game, she ran in, saw I was watching football had a moan then asked have Palace let in a goal, I said no, Rashford's just been substituted, which was greeted with incomprehension!
Anyway thanks for organising it, I will take part next year, but the only way now is down!

You are very welcome Paul, and it's nice to see another newbie come along - and not only did you take up the challenge, you only went and won the league at your first attempt! Plus another league as well! Whatver strategy you had, it obviously worked, and it sounds like you've got fantasy football sussed out already. We might have a little Guardiola in our ranks here!

Your feelings about players like Marcus Rashford being substitued are ones many of us can relate to, and something we'll probably go through time and again. Similarly with those who get left out of the starting lineup altogether some weeks for whatever reason and maybe don't even get to play at all (Henrik Mkhitaryan...). All part of the fun - and frustration - of fantasy football, in any format!

Thank you for sharing your experience, I'm really pleased to hear you enjoyed playing and will be back again next time to defend your crown. Have a great summer and we'll see you next season!
