End of Season FPL Highest Scoring Players Ever Trivia Quiz

Post by Stemania » 15 May 2019, 11:29

Doing the rounds at the moment is the updated all-time highest scoring possible FPL team; a squad of 15 players made up of all who have scored the most points in a season throughout the history of FPL, all in a legal FPL formation. :mrgreen:

VVD (with 208 points) would this year have posted the highest ever scoring season of any defender in FPL's history(!)...if it weren't for a certain Andy Robertson (with 213). We all know about Salah's mind-blowing FPL-record-breaking 303 last year, but can you correctly guess the remaining eight? No peeking!
GK1 (187)

Robertson (213) -- van Dijk (208) -- DEF3 (196)

Salah (303) -- MID2 (284) -- MID3 (283) -- MID4 (264)

STR1 (295) -- STR2 (271) -- STR3 (269)
State your guesses in the following format and I'll give points for the person with the most correct answers in the correct positions (edits allowed).

GK1 (187):
Def3 (196):
Mid2 (284):
Mid3 (283):
Mid4 (264):
Str1 (295):
Str2 (271):
Str3 (269):

Bonus marks (in case of tiebreak) will be awarded for the subs bench if you want a go at that too -

GK2 (178):
Def4 (196):
Def5 (187):
Mid5 (249):

There are two correct answers for Def3, as their score happens to match that of substitute Def4. Note also that Salah's 259 this year would get him in the team twice if that were allowed, but it is clearly not. :lol:

Done entirely from memory/guess work so...

GK1 (187): Vorm?
Def3 (196): Terry or maybe Lescott, no Terry.
Mid2 (284): Lampard or Ronaldo
Mid3 (283): Ronaldo or Lampard
Mid4 (264): Charlie Adam (surely not but there must be a surprising name in here somewhere)
Str1 (295): Henry
Str2 (271): RVP
Str3 (269): Suarez

GK2 (178): Cech
Def4 (196): Lescott?
Def5 (187): Or is this Lescott.
Mid5 (249): Lescott. Definitely Lescott.

Tim Howard, I think you mean, and I had wondered about him as well (maybe the year he scored as well). Van der Sar was another name that came to mind.

Could be anybody really if it's someone who hasn't been mentioned. May as well just list goalkeepers from big clubs or keepers who were around for ages... So:

Lloris, Lehmann, Jaaskelainen, David James, Friedel, Given, Foster, Green

Brad Friedel is the most likely of those I reckon ...
Mind you some of the young-uns on here probably weren't born when he was playing.

Reina? (we're really going back a few years there!) Probably wrong - Liv did keep a lot of clean sheets in the noughties though!

I mentioned Reina before Stem said the player hadn't been mentioned... So, presumably not

Final Scores:

We have a winner! A special bonus point to AR for being the first to vaguely commit to the correct GK. First mentioned by bc2, but throwing a list of names at the dartboard and hoping one would stick isn't enough to win the favour of the panel. The correct GK is indeed a certain Brad Friedel, all the way back in FPL's inaugural 02/03 season. So far ago that Blackburn's team included the likes of Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Egil Østenstad, Keith Gillespie, Garry Flitcroft and Tugay, plus a young Damian Duff & David Dunn, with a 'solid' defence of Lucas Neil, Craig Short, Nils-Eric Johansson and Martin Taylor with Henning Berg as backup!

Despite not making a guess at the whole team, AR bonus point is enough for him to not come last. That honour goes to PB, who fell into the Phil Jones trap (and the dreaded minus 100 points klaxon).

The correct answers are
Friedel (187)

Robertson (213) -- van Dijk (208) -- Lescott/Terry (196)

Salah (303) -- Lampard (284) -- Ronaldo (283) -- Sanchez (264)

Suarez (295) -- Henry (271) -- van Persie (269)

(Bench: Cech (178), Terry/Lescott (196), Vidic (187), Bale (249)
Here's the scores on the doors out of a maximum of 8, in descending order:

Sutter Kane: 7 points
thebillfella: 7 points
DL Is A Hero: 6 points
tarkens: 6 points
Mav3rick: 3 points
bigcliff2: 2 points
Aldershot Rejects: 1 point
Pirlo's Beard: -100 points

In an awkward turn of events, both leaders have 3 correct answers on the tie-breaking bench. However, I notice that the incorrect answer in both teams is Cech for Sutter and Hart for thebillfella. Cech is the missing answer from Sutter's otherwise correct bench, thus we name Sutter Kane the winner! Well done SK, after a few (legal) edits. :mrgreen: :wink:

Thank you. I feel unworthy due to my edit(s) however. RVP's and Sanchez's scores only became obvious once someone else had mentioned them! :oops:
