Live scores not updating properly at the moment, or indeed all afternoon so far.

I mentioned at the start of the season about Bogginho the mass multi entrant, it seems he’s a seasoned pro at this game. All but 11 of his teams out of a 100 I think it was have recouped money back, also having plenty in the top 100 🙄and his best placed team third. Can’t compete with that.

Bogginho actually only entered just over 50 teams so very impressive compared to another multi entrant Sandor who entered a 100+ teams but has been nowhere near as successful With his best team ranked just out of the top 100 currently. And not many in the top 1200 I might add

I'm at 102nd with my single entry but fearing some final week wildcards...

Top 100 would be very gratifying!

Sandor - 115 teams with just 4 in the top 1,000 - (highest being 115th)
Bogginho - 54 teams - 14 in top 100, 41 in top 1000!

Wow, Cujo was doing so well in the early days as well....

Know it’s been said before but maybe we could look at a fiso syndicate for next season?

Maybe enter like 2 teams each into the syndicate..10 members would give us 20 very diverse teams.:.:

Just a thought I guess..

Best of luck for anyone still in with a shout.

I have learnt a lot this year so am “taking the positives” out of much needed experience gained.

Finished 246th in the end which is disappointing considering how well I was doing.

Trebled my entry fee though so all good. I never felt concerned I wouldn't at least get my money back on this. Can't see it being that easy next season.

For those sharing lessons learned, anyone want to explain price rises? Do they happen on certain days? Always 0.1 increments? Max in a week? Etc

Price rises were at random times early on in the season - basically whenever they could be bothered to update. Quite a few on here suspected they were manual adjustments rather than coded changes.

Pukki had a couple of 0.2 increases early season after hat-trick against Newcastle and then goal + assist against Chelsea in the following game. I'm fairly sure Henderson got a 0.2 increase too as he was underpriced at only 4.0 when the season started.

Can't give you any info about later on in the season as I stopped paying attention.
