164 for the round.
KDB (C)
Rolled with Salah on field in the Salah vs. Mane off the bench battle, and chose wrong.

Finished 45th overall. Pretty happy with the late charge from the 100's into the top 50.

Well done to all on the extended season. Always great fun. And we'e seen some great results again.

166 KDB

Final round pretty much summed up my season

KDB 36 , Mount 24 , Fernandes 18 , AWB 12 , Robertson 12 , Sterling 12

Pogba 6 , Vardy 4 , Jimenez 4 , Pickford 2 , Digne 0

Could never get all XI firing the same week.

Enjoyed trading in different players from different teams

Got as high as 125th but finished 668th.

Weekly highlight was 30th in Round 10.

Well done to all those in the League that finished Top 100 and to everyone else who played.

Be back again in September to do it all again

I enjoyed the season overall. Highlight was making the final 64 in the eliminator, but that elimination in week 26 coincided with a bad spell for my team, where I dropped from the low 100's (127 in R25) into the 500's by the end of the season, finishing 550th. Best weekly ranking was 28th in R23 and overall 113th in R14.

I couldn't have named more than 3-4 players before joining, and never played fantasy soccer before, so think I did OK for a first attempt. Just missed a few key players towards the second half and kept faith in the wrong ones. Lots of lessons learned for September.

Best trade in Fernandes (that stayed in my team) at the price of $7,050,000
Worst trade in Firmino (that stayed in my team) at the price of $10,950,000

Highlight for trade in the same week
Week 3 traded in Mount at $3,750,000 traded out Week 12 at $9,130,000
Week 3 traded in Pukki at $5,240,000 traded out Week 5 at $12,550,000

Worst trade in and out
Week 24 traded in Vardy at $10,980,000 traded out Week 29 at $5,970,000

Also like to congratulate DeBruyne, Robertson and to lesser extent Maddison
( who I would of traded out if I didn’t run out of trades in WK 30) for being in my team for the whole 38 weeks

I was wrapped to finished 27th overall, hoping the Norwegian Vikings will finish higher next time around

Not exactly EPL, but close enough. Ross County FC, one of the teams in the Scotish Premier League have 5 players in their current squad with the first name Ross, including all 3 of their goalkeepers. You would have to think their recruitment staff must be doing it intentionally. It would be pretty funny if they ended up with a full team all called Ross.
