Overall Points: 2,553
Overall Rank: 5,021
Thought it would be useful to do a quick post to finish off the season. An overall finish of around 5,000 on the leaderboard wasn’t a complete disaster but it wasn’t really what I was aiming to achieve at the start of the season. I’d have been much happier pushing for a finish within the top 1,000 teams but it wasn’t to be. However this is partly down to taking a few risks at the end of the season to make something happen in my mini league. These didn’t pay off and it ultimately cost me position on the leaderboard.
All in all it’s been an enjoyable season. I’ve felt like the blog has gathered more momentum this year, with more of a community feel in the comments. There’s been a lot of comments and a lot of people who are happy to help others which is great to see. I was tempted to pick out individuals to thank for being so active in the comments but I didn’t want to miss anyone out. As a result I just wanted to thank everyone who has been a regular contributor in the comments. The comments themselves are much more useful than my blogs alone and I don’t think the site would be half as useful without them. Hopefully this continues next season.
I also wanted to congratulate Neil who won the Dream Team Tips mini league with an impressive 2783 points.
I’ll do a more in-depth look at strategies that seem to have been successful when we get closer to the new season. I’ll be very interested to hear how other people will approach the game next time around but after a long season I’d imagine most of us are glad for the summer break for now. It’s also going to be interesting to see if there are any changes to the rules which might impact our strategies so it makes sense to see what might happen here first.
How to show your support
I also wanted to quickly give people the opportunity to show their appreciation for the blog. I think we would all agree that a minimum contribution of £1 to get the password protected content for the season was incredibly cheap (which was completely my intention so I’m not complaining). However, if you won your mini leagues and felt like this blog helped or you just wanted to show your appreciation now that the season is over, feel free to use the button below to send over a small contribution.
It’s almost a certainty that the blog will be back next season and hopefully it will continue to be a useful resource for everyone involved. Anyone who contributes £3 or more on the button above won’t be expected to contribute to get the password next season (should the blog go ahead for next season). If you had any ideas for improvements or comments on the season please feel free to leave them below.
