And so the final curtain has been drawn on yet another tumultuous season dominated yet again by the Fantasy Football giants that are Steaua NeedaRest. However, Steaua were unable to achieve the ultimate accolade of triple winners after they retained the league championship and the cup earlier in the season the play offs once again proved a step too far!
In fact it was anything but a giant of the league who rose to the challenge of taking the final prize of the season as two founder members of BeerandBoobs fought out the Play Off Final. The Dwarfs and the Toffees emerged from the play offs as the two teams to play for the honour of having a star above their badge next season.
In the end the Toffees were a little disappointing and Spiros was left with plenty in the tank as his dwarfs breezed to a relatively straight forward win, the Dwarfs first major trophy in their long history.
Congratulations to the Dwarfs on both their victory and in stopping Steaua from taking every bit of prize money.
Unsurprisingly Balo’s Firework managed to finish last in the league stage – much to the delight of BareAssAlona manager McLaughlin who has made last place his own in previous seasons but BareAssAlona shouldn’t get too pleased with themselves after winning the biggest disappointment of the season award as they stormed to the top of the league in the initial weeks looking good for a play off place only to suffer a catastrophic slump over the middle of the season ending up in a poor 11th place.
Rookie of the year was scooped by Garbonzo FC finishing a fantastic 2nd in their first year and they will be definitely one to watch next season.
An Apology should be due to Morgis Miracles as this blog predicted a dire season for the leagues only female manager, when in fact they made the play off semi finals but as they did in fact win fuck all I feel justified as that exactly what we predicted they’d win.
So the season ends once again and we are left planning our strategies for next season.
Well done one and all, See you in August!!
As the dust settled on the midweek results which saw the conclusion of the play off quarter finals a couple of shock results became apparent.
First of all the Toffees who had barely scraped into the top eight managed to annihilate the treble chasing favourites Steaua NeedaRest who’s luck finally ran out with the holy grail in sight. Many will be glad to see the back of Steaua as we reported in our last blog the league is becoming more one sided that the Scottish PL.
We will be treated to a new play off champion as the quarter finals also saw previous winners Angry Dragons make their exit as well as perennial bridemaids Dyslexic Untied who yet again find themselves without any silverware for their toils. The Dwarfs and the league runners up Garbonzo FC were the teams to take advantage in this instance and now both will meet each other in the semi final in a mouthwatering tie.
The other surprise result wasn’t one due to the fact that it was achieved by a team “allegedly” being managed by our only female manager (although we have our suspicions that Dwarfs Manager and husband may have more than one of his stubby fingers in the running of the Miracles) but more to the fact that United By Fear made no changes whatsoever in a remarkable lack of attention by their man in charge.
So we are left with a semi final line up that looks like this:
|Morgi’s Miracles||v||Sticky Toffees|
Good Luck to all those still left in with a shout and commiserations to the rest.
