Donache, Marinez & Finkler non-appearance plus Maclaran blank as my captain is going to leave me agonisingly short in my Eliminator!:mad:
Painful to watch Troisi dominate against Adelaide but only earn 5 points as my C and knock me out as well : (

Oh well, more time for AFL SC now I guess!

Finally broked through to 3rd and ahead of the Sydney FC team!

Correct captain choice would of had me 1st for the round. A few non selections of my players in recent weeks have stunted even further progress.

5 rounds to go...here's hoping my horses are still flying at the end.

Any updates @Thanh? Survive the international weekend selection mania??
Had Thomas as backup GKP for Vukovic and Donachie (who came on off the bench in the 2nd half) for Grant in DEF, ended up just putting Rojas on the bench and didn't have Berisha or any of the Phoenix Internationals.

Scored 95 for the round, which I thought was OK, until I saw the leaders' scores. Dropped from 2nd down to 3rd, and now the gap to 5th is only 4 points with 3 rounds to go!

54 points behind the leader (16 points loss this round) so I don't think it's realistic for my team to pull that back. Just hoping to hang onto a Top 3 finish to be in the prize money.

Hope your team is ending the season on a high.

How about the team that is now 4th. Top scored with 212 last round and now only 29 points behind the leader. Unbelievable!

I managed a season high 170 myself which included a donut but good enough for 13th for the week.

I need to apologise that with AFL back on and having an EPL fantasy team that this comp has dropped off my radar because I'm the least engaged in the league. Lesson for next year!

No need to apologise I reckon you're not the only one! Me included.

Funnily enough, the league grand final is next week. Myself, THCLT, B18 and The Socceroos (not sure who that is) playing off this week.

I won somehow it seems lol.

I decided to save my last trade for like the last 4-5 weeks and didn't use it in the end.

Thanh finishes 7th in the end. Very close!

The FULL lock-out has its pros & cons.

Resting of players in the last few rounds, plus a few red cards and missed penalties for my players saw my team go from 2nd to 7th in the end, 70 points from the winner.

My final round captain in Martinez went massive with a -4 courtesy of a missed penalty!

All in all, happy with my first attempt at this fantasy caper, albeit falling out of the prize money in the end.

Bad luck on missing 3rd, you had a fair bit of bad luck. Good effort to stay up there for so long though. SFC just missed out on prize money too after sticking to his strategy of only sydney players lol.

Bad luck mate, massive effort and nearly got the chocolates. Not bad for someone new to the caper and may or may not follow A League very closely.

Thanks guys, just needed a bit of luck which didn't fall my way in the end.

Completely new to the A League, though like the EPL, have become more accustomed with players now. Onto next year...

Actually looking forward to next years comp for a-league. Took me a while to get into this one (7 trades still remaining at seasons end...) but ended the year with the 3rd ranked round 27 score, and Colazo sitting on the bench.. ouch!

Congrats on the great result Thanh, commiserations on the poor touches of luck at the end
