^^Wow. You've really spared no expense!


Got the team together tonight. I want them to believe,
they can go the distance.
One last time: VIVA LA STOPLIGHTS!

Bless 'em.

It is really squeaky bum time around here. I left a lot of points on the table these past two match weeks (Lukaku on the bench! Aaaaaaaaah!), but I think I did just enough to hold on. Just. I'm still going to sweat until the final bonuses are handed out and results officially tallied.

Then again, I did notice quite a few helicopters circling around Prospect Park yesterday. Now I can tell my wife why they were there.

Well, the tables haven't yet been fully updated but bonus points have been allocated – meaning that I can declare our winners.

First, the MacRumors League. A late surge by Neutron Heath put a question mark over the identity of the eventual winner, but in the end it was Prospect Park FC who are our 2012-13 champions. Congratulations to the winning manager Silencio on his well deserved triumph.

Meanwhile, the final whistle has also been blown at Vale Farm and it's Hardly Athletic who are hauling their weary bodies up the steps to receive the MacRumors Fantasy Cup after their 74-62 point win over The Stoplights. Congratulations then to Tom8, and equally commiserations to our valiant runner-up Tilpots.

Once the final tables are sorted I'll post them up for posterity.

As well as congratulating our winners, it would be churlish of me not to thank everyone who took part in our two competitions. It's been a very hard fought but entertaining season and the Fantasy League thread has never been busier, so thank you all for your enthusiasm and I hope you've enjoyed proceedings.

Whew. I'm more relieved than ecstatic right now. A real stumble over the finish line. Bad decisions cost me over 40 points over the last two match weeks.

Open top bus tour up Flatbush Ave! Maybe we'll even roll across the Manhattan Bridge and show that other little island what a real champion looks like!

Congrats to Tom8, as well. Good job! Next time I'll not forget to enter the H2H league. And cheers to all for another great season.

Actually, I'd prefer it if you did forget

Congratulations to both winners! And very well done to everybody else who took part and made this season really fun.

I'll definitely be back next season. Once again, thank you Mr Cake.

Congrats to Tom8! I put my best effort into it and lost to the better side. Well done. Your team has been excellent all season!

Transferring out Lukaku seemed like a good idea when he didn't start. . The Stoplights accomplished nearly every goal we set out to undertake. Couldn't be prouder of the lads. We'll
use this loss to fuel the fire next year.

Congrats to Silencio, as well. Top of the table! So impressive.

Hats off to everyone else, too. Thanks for making this such a fun season. Can't wait to see you all here next year.

Jaffa, thanks again for the stewardship if the league. Between the league tables, kit designs and back room negotiations, I hope the league finds a way to raise your salary next season by a very, very large percentage!

See ya on the boards, boys.

Two of a kind!

Learned a lot during this season, glad I pulled 2000+ Fantasy points at last, but iToys will be stronger than ever next season.

Shout-outs to the Mopheads, too!

I hope you will be!

Generally the FPL website is launched in early-mid July, so once it's open for 2013-14 I'll get things set up, PM our regular players with the relevant codes and open the League up for new sign ups.
