A new theme for these sites, though should be out sometime in the first week of September.

In the basic homepage where the fixtures are laid, the links will be activated depending on the gameweek. So gameweek 5, will point to the gameweek 5 link of that person. Obviously as gameweek 5 hasn’t happened yet, you can’t view the team now.

Immediately after gameweek1 deadline, you will see that gameweek 1 links have started working.

What I need you guys to do is to simply tell me any issues you have with the site. Remember I’ve had very little time to do this, so it’s been a quite a rushed job. So it’s highly possible that errors might have creeped in.

Any errors especially those in your fpl id/link please send me a mail (ffsuefa@gmail.com) or you can use the contact us page. You can alternatively comment here itself. If you see any other mix-ups, contact me for that too.

f) Serie-A – Juventus(Pratik), AC Milan (Milanista), Catnia (Djerbil)

For exceptional work and giving life to this competition, both Jkisthe1 and Milanista are also granted a spot in CL/Europa, despite being relegated.

This leaves a total of 21 spots left for the CL and Europa League still unoccupied. Relegated Managers will also be considered for these spots.

The main criteria for these spots is your contribution to the Uefa Council Leagues, and FFS. We will be looking for managers that will contribute to repeating the great atmosphere of last year’s CL and Europa through banter and pressers!

Accepted managers for season 2, feel free to contact us (ffsuefa@gmail.com, or via comments) if you have a particular team preference from the relegated teams in the league that you have been assigned. The new ROE managers can propose alternative team names if they wish to change to another European team not currently in any of the 6 leagues.

SERIE A Review by Doctor X – GW 17

My first contribution to the FFS UEFA community in terms of an article, this is. So here I am delving into the form of managers going into Matchday 17 and assessing the end product of their tactics and team selection. I’ve put quite a bit of research into this, so the feedback would be appreciated a lot! Any errors can be made aware of through the comment system. Enjoy lads!

1.            UG Pescara (GoonerDhanesh) 52 beat  AC Milan (Milanista) 42

UG Pescara come into this game in despeciable form (L-L-L-L) facing the Italian giants AC Milan (L-W-W-L) who have surprisingly dropped into the relegation zone after poor performances all around this season. City vs Newcastle proved to be the key game in this fantasy match up, as RvP (C) was matched by both teams with Pescara benefitting from a Silva assist and Demba goal to set himself up for the win, which saw Milan lose out on a City CS. Milan drops to 19th in the table and will be looking to rediscover his form to stay with the big dogs.

2.            Sampdoria (Megatron X) 70 beat Catania (Djerbil) 52

Catanias poor form continues with a loss this weekend to Sampdoria, which means that they are now on a run of 5 losses. Sampdoria have picked up off late coming through a run of consecutive victories to snatch this one comfortably. Overall team performances were poor on both sides, but SantiCazorladelievered heavily for Sampdoria while OOP Walcott was not so effective for Catania. Catania have hit rock bottom in the league now with just 9 points, while Sampdoria are nicely poised midtable with a couple of games more to go for a Europa League spot.

3.            Chievo Verona (ReinaMan) 47 beat AS Roma (Udit) 40

Arguably one of the most low scoring match ups in the league this weekend, high ranked Verona continued their good form (W-L-W-W) capitalize over a poorer performance by Roma, who had to trade non playing Gaston and Lambert for – 4 points which might have contributed to their narrow loss. A cheeky punt on Aaron Lennon who came through with 4 a CS point and a Bonus point pushed Verona through. Capitalizing on this Verona have climbed to the top as league leaders on Points Difference with Bologna, a Champions League spot looking assured.

4.            Fiorentina (RoysCallerAnne) 70  beat Siena (Running Riot) 66

The highest scoring match up of the weekend saw Fiorentina narrowly snatch victory from Siena beating them by 4 points. Both teams came into the Gameweek on reasonable form with Fiorentina having a knack for snatching draws and narrow victories off late. Van Persie (C) and SantiCazorla produced the goods for both sides, which Fiorentina won thanks to a Wayne Rooney goal. Siena slip into the bottom half of the table, as the winners move into the upper half carrying a rich vein of form into the next round.

 

5.            Genoa (Doctor X) 57 beat Torino (BowString 92) 43

I came into this Gameweek on a decent run of form (W-L-W-W) similar to Torino (L-L-W-W). These were two teams packed with a similar frontline of RVP, Suarez, Defoe, Michu, Fellaini and Sterling. But the deciding factor proved to be the little man himself. SantiCazorla’s 23 point haul along with RVP (C) propelled Genoa to victory over Torino who gave the armband to Luis Suarez, who disappointed massively. A crucial match up for both teams saw Bowstring drop into the lower echelons of the league sitting just above the drop zone, while Genoa continues their good form sitting three points from the top of the table.

6.            Juventus (Pratik)66  beat Atalanta (MJ6987) 61

Juve riding the back of poor form off late with 3 losses in their last 4 came head to with Atalanta at home who have been in equally terrible form with D-L-L-L in their last 4 games. However form went out of the window and the game was extremely tight. Atalanta’s 2 free transfers were unfruitful as Rafael withdrew injured and Defoe drew another blank. Finally a West Ham clean sheet from Guy Demel and 3 points from Clint Dempsey were enough to give Juventus their second win as they try and rediscover their form of previous champions. The win pulled Juve out of the drop zone, sitting just a couple of points behind it, while Atalanta gave up top spot in the league and now sink to 3rd place. A very critical match up this.

7.            Lazio (Forca Inter) 54 beat Internazionale (Isacki) 42

Lazio, who have had mixed fortunes of late in the league (W-W-L-L) came face to face with Italian giants Inter as they continue to make a late surge in search for a Europa league spot. Lazio drafted in Mark Bun and Luiz Suarez (C) both of whom disappointed but his gameweek and match up was safe thanks to none other than Santa Clauzorla who bought Lazio an early Christmas gift with a whopper 23 points. Meanwhile Inter took a massive 8 point hit to bring in Glen Johnson, Giroud and Olsson, all of whom couldn’t bridge the gap and pulled Inter further into the abyss of the bottom half of the league.

8.            Napoli (Daniel) 45 beat Bologna (Frazek) 43

The lowest scoring combined match up of the weekend saw Napoli who’ve been in great form (L-W-W-L) – with the last game a 1 point loss to Inter last weekend – come face to face with high ranked Bologna who have been in incredible form with 4 wins out of their last 4. Napoli drafter in Glen Johnson who produced an assist, while Frazek took a 4 point hit to bring in Zabaleta, Defoe and Tevez (for Aguero). Had Bologna held onto Aguero, they would’ve comfortable snatched the win, in an otherwise disappointed all round performance barring Robin Reliant. Bologna are still holding up strong at 2nd place in the league on goal difference, while Napoli consolidate a midtable position.

9.            Cagliari (Grounderz)65  beat Parma (LittleWizard123) 49

Stuck in the relegation dogfight, this was a much needed win for both sides, with Cagliari coming out on top with none other than Cazorla dropping a 23 point bomb on Parma. Cagliari, in contrast to their recent results (W-W-L-L) have infact been in terrific form with both the losses, a 2 and 1 point game, so has been Parma, with 3 wins in their last 3. Both sides went in with the Dutchman as captain and the tie was settled by the Spaniard at the end. Cagliari are third from the bottom and must look to maintain their decent run. Parma move down nearer to the dropzone and must be cautious next week.

10.          Palermo (Mark) 72 beat Udinese (Menly) 39

FFS Founder Mark and his team were pitched against Udinese this weekend. Palermo with 3 wins in their last three have been enjoying a surge up the table and the rankings off late, while Udinese come into this game with mixed fortunes (W-L-W-L). Udinese were pounded by the wildcard wielded by Palermo, who had Van Persie (C), Rooney and SantiCazorla raking in the points. Udinese seemed to have an unchanged squad from last week with Sessegnon as (C) who chipped in with an assist, and a no show from Enrique and Rafael only made matters worse. Palermo move within touching distance of a Europa League spot, while Udinese drop down into the lower half of the table.

Hamburg SV says something!

Herr Vets, manager of SV Hamburg allowed the cameras into his recently struggling team’s training session before the game against … ermm… VfL Wolfsburg, despite a disastrous last 3 matches.

He was heard shouting “Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the football of the future. Don’t just stand there you prick, get forward, strength lies not in defence but in attack!”

When asked about his recent shaky performances Herr Vets replied “It’s a blip, Dummkopf! Who says I am not under the special protection of God?” and left the room.

4vets apologises to any Hamburg supporters for any offence caused.

SERIE A GW-11 REVIEW

One of the best game weeks in Serie A league where there were more upsets and struggles and some awesome victories. Here is the review of all the matches that took place last week in Serie A.

AC Milan(Milanista) defeated Chievo Verona(Reina Man) 40-33

AC Milan were back to winning ways in Serie A league followed by the draw last week against Palermo, whereas one of the front runners in the league Chievo Verona succumbed to second consecutive defeat after losing last week to US Pescara. Despite both the managers scoring less than average game week score of 41 points, this match proved to be a close call with AC Milan edging Chievo Verona only because of the extra points scored in midfield. Both managers scored 13 points in defense and 17 points in offense, but the difference came in midfield with Milan edging out Chievo Verona with 10 points against 7. Reina Man’s double transfer(-4 point hit)during the week proved vital for Milan in getting a 7 points victory.

As a result of this victory, AC Milan jumps to 18th spot in the table whereas Cheivo Verona drops two places and sits now at 6th place in the league.

Palermo(Mark) defeated AS Roma(Udit) 69-44

Palermo registered a great victory over fellow rival AS Roma by notching the biggest score in the game week. Berbatov(16), Fellaini(13) and RVP(10) and the whole defence of Palermo(22 points) were the main protagonists who helped outscore Roma’s RVP, Jelavic, Lambert, Cameron and Begovic who all combined to score 33 points out of the total of 44 points.

Palermo climbed 5 places as a result of this stunning victory and now sits comfortable at 4th place in the league whereas Roma slipped to 7th place in the league from 2nd place last week.

Bologna(Frazek) defeated Udinese(Menly) 51-41

Following last week’s marginal victory over Juventus, Bologna continue the winning spree this time by defeating another league front runner Udinese. While both had RVP and Lambert as the front men, Bologna’s choice to go with Aguero reaped him a further 7 points than Udinese’s Ba. Also Bologna’s stable defence proved quite worthy as opposed to the mediocre defence of Udinese which consisted of Rafael and Mertesacker who contributed a meager 2 points.

Bologna climbed to top 10 for the first time after this victory whereas Udinese dropped 2 places now and sits at 5th in the table.

Catania(Djerbil) defeated Lazio(Forca Inter) 64-61

This was one of the best matches of the league this weekend with the bottom placed club Catania giving the shocking result by overcoming the consistent Lazio with a marginal victory of 3 points. All praises to Catania who produced this superb result even though he had to make a 4 point hit during the week. It was the midfield pair of Mata, Pienaar, Nolan, Ben Arfa and Cazorla that made the difference in this match with these five scoring a total of 21 points amongst themselves whereas Lazio’s midfield could only manage a decent 11 points plus the extra 2 points for the 3rd striker.

Despite providing one of the best wins in the week, Catania still sits in a much disappointing 20th spot whereas the defeat for Lazio means they have now dropped just one place and sits at 8th place currently.

Fiorentina(RoyscallerAnne) defeated Cagliari(Grounderz) 60-41

Fiorentina rallied to the second consecutive victory in 2 weeks and defeated the relegation battling Cagliari. Both the Midfield and the defence proved worthy for Fiorentina to thrash Cagliari. The stellar midfield of Fiorentina consisting of Fellaini, Nolan, Cazorla and Bale proved to be too good for the midfield of Cagliari who had Mata, Yaya Toure, Cazorla and Pienaar. The inclusion of Reading defender Gunter provided extra 4 points for Fiorentina against Cagliari.

Following 2 back to back victories, Fiorentina climbed to 11th spot in the table whereas Cagliari still remains at 19th spot with 9 points from 11 game weeks.

Internazionale(Isacki) defeated Juventus(Pratik) 55-21

Isacki was back to winning ways again and this time it was against the struggling Juventus. RVP, Berbatov, Mata, Baines and Begovic were the main candidates who helped Isacki post his big win against Pratik. This is I think the worst game week for Pratik who started the season very well as he made 5 transfers this week thus reducing his 16 points and also a bad decision to bench Berbatov who had the best weekend in FPL.

As a result of this, Inter climbs to 3rd spot in the serie A table and Juventus slipped to 16th place in the league.

Torino(Bowstring62) defeated Napoli(Daniel) 66-59

Another exciting match of the weekend.Torino proved to be a strong contender against a much improved Napoli. While this is the second victory for Torino in 2 weeks, it is the 3rd consecutive loss for Napoli.

Unlike other teams, these two only had Baines, Rafael and Mata in common amongst them. The front 3 of Napoli proved to be stronger than Torino, with the former grabbing 25 points from the forwards while the latter grabbed only 21. But again the difference was in midfield where Torino gathered a whopping 30 points from mata, fellaini, Ramirez and Morrison whereas Napoli could only manage 20 points from Nolan, Mata, Bale and Michu. Napoli’s defence scored 18 points whereas Torino’s defence scored 15 points. Napoli also had taken a 4 point hit, which meant that Torino had the last laugh and grabbed 3 points in the league.

The resultant victory meant Torino will start GW 12 sitting at 12th place whereas Napoli slipped to 13th place and are now in the bottom half of the table.

Altanta(MJ6987) defeated Sampdoria(Megatron X) 52-41

There is no stopping league leader Atlanta at the moment who just cruised to the 4th consecutive victory with a win over Sampdoria. Both the defence of Atlanta and Sampdoria scored 19 points and there was no difference in points scored by forwards since both had same forwards.It was yet again down to midfield where Everton’s free scoring Fellaini making all the difference and once again proving good for the league leader Atlanta.

Following this victory, Atlanta is very much comfortable sitting at the top of the table with 27 points, 6 ahead of 2nd placed Pescara whereas Sampdoria dropped one place and are now down to 9th in the league.

Genoa(Ex) defeated Siena(Running Riot) 48-39

Genoa is now back to winning ways again whereas the out of form Siena tasting 4th consecutive loss in a row. Both the defences were somewhat similar in scoring. Genoa’s defence scored 19 points as opposed to Siena’s 17. But it was the wrong decision of Siena to captain hazard this weekend that ended up in misery for them. Siena’s midfield only produced 10 points with hazard as captain whereas Genoa’s midfield produced 11 points. Genoa’s forwards contributed a valuable 18 points too whereas Siena’s forwards only produced 16. Siena also had a 4 point transfer which meant that Genoa won comfortably by 9 points.

Genoa climbs to 14th in the league following the victory whereas Siena is now dropped to 15th in the league.

US Pescara(goonerdhanesh) defeated Parma(Littlewizard123) 54-31

US Pescara now wins 2 matches in a row whereas Parma looses their 2nd match in a row. Parma’s defence produced 14 points whereas Pescara only managed 12 points. Again the midfield proved to be quite good for Pescara, as the midfielders scored 22 points whereas Parma’s midfielders only managed 7 points. Pescara’s forwards too proved to be better than Parma’s. While Pescara’s forwards notched 28 points, Parma’s boys managed only 14. This eased the pressure on Pescara who also had an 8 point hit compared to 4 point hit by Parma.

Following this win, Pescara climbs to second in the league whereas Parma is now down to 17th spot.

Ligue 1 Review GW11 – Shipstontrev

NICE (Lateriser) 63 beat MARSEILLE (Fratboy) 34

Lateriser continued his rise up the standings of both FPL, where he is at 245 in the world, and the Ligue 1 table with this easy victoy over Fratboy.

MONTPELLIER (Gervinho’s Forehead) 63 beat PSG (Super Zlatan) 53


The shock result of the week saw GF beat SZ by 10 points. GF had Berbatov, Morrison, RVP(c) and the Stoke duo of Begovic and Cameron, which more than overcame SZ’s picks of Fellaini and RVP(c). Zlatan also took a 4 point hit.

ST. ETIENNE (Chrissy Waddle) 61 beat TROYES (kaz) 42

Both managers took a 4 point hit, and Chrissy Waddle’s paid off the better, as Berbatov, Fellaini and RVP(c) were more than enough for kaz, who only had decent points from Kevin Nolan, RVP(c) and Ruddy. Kaz is now 19th, Chrissy goes up to to 8th.

VALENCIENNES (!Bazzinga!) 61 beat BASTIA (Beavis) 49

The American proved his Big Bang Theory was correct with this 12 point win over Beavis. !Bazzinga’s! line-up of Berbatov, Suarez, Begovic and Mata(c) gave him the victory. Beavis had Nolan, RVP(c) and Jelavic, but the remaining players and a 4 point hit meant that his barren run continued for another week.

BORDEAUX (Ryan) 58 beat LORIENT (Dr. Ennet) 51

A close top of the table clash saw the Kiwi just pip his Swedish opponent by 7 points. Ryan had Berbatov, RVP(c) and the Stoke dynamic duo, while the good Doctor had RVP(c), Suarez, Begovic and Gorkss. Ryan climbs to 3rd in Ligue 1.

EVIAN (King Eric) 53 beat REIMS (Mahfreems) 39

Another American win, with King Eric’s team of Berbatov, RVP(c), Cameron and Schwarzer more than a match for Mahfreems’ RVP(c) and Lambert.

TOULOUSE (Heco87) 53 beat AJACCIO (Ms.Red19) 46

Just 7 points separated these two managers. Heco’s top scorers were Fellaini, RVP and Baines (c), and Ms.Red’s were RVP(c), Begovic and Gorkss. Heco87 is now at 1496 overall in the FPL rankings and 4th in Ligue 1.

RENNES (Sarnab Wazza) 44 beat NANCY (Coldplay) 31

India beat Pakistan as Sarnab inflicted a defeat on Coldplay, who has hit a wall in the last few weeks. RVP(c) and the Stoke duo were her principal scorers, whilst Coldplay only had Morrison and Rooney (c) and took a 4 point hit. Coldplay falls to 5th in the table.

BREST (Shipstontrev) 40 beat LILLE (In Like Flynn) 35

Luck was with Shipstontrev this week as ILF took a 12 point hit, taking away most of his points for Fellaini. This meant that Shipstontrev sneaked a fortunate win, with RVP(c), Begovic and Gorkss the only bright spots in a sea of 2 pointers. Still a win is a win, and the Bournemouth fan has an 8 point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

LYON (FC Borcelona) 44 drew with SOCHAUX (Chazza) 44

FCB stayed in 2nd place as RVP(c). Jaaskelainen and Cameron were matched by RVP(c). Gorkss and Begovic.

Serie A Hall of Fame awards for Gameweek 11 – Goonerdan

1. Salma Hayek Overnight score (for the best match day score)

Palermo club which is managed by Mark grabs this award for gaining 69 points during the match day , thanks to Dimitar Berbatov(16), RVP(10), Fellaini(13) and all the defenders who contributed with a clean sheet for notching the biggest score amongst fellow serie A league managers…

2. Patrice Suarez award (for lowest match day score)

Unfortunately this award goes to Pratik, one of the Council members and manager of Juventus. Although Juventus are leading the Serie A table in real life, they are actually struggling to catch-up with the rest of the managers in FFS UEFA league. A whopping 5 transfers were made during the week by this manager thus deducting 16 points from his total as well as h2h score of 37 points and thus making him eligible to earn this award this past weekend.

3. Bonus Maestro award (for highest bonus points during the gameweek)

Napoli(managed by Daniel) and Torino(managed by Bowstring92) are the winners of this award as both clubs managed to get 11 points as bonus points this past weekend. Fortunately or unfortunately these two clubs were competing each other during this week in what turned out to be one of the exciting and closely held match during the gameweek. While Napoli grabbed bonus points via Baines(2), Nolan(3) and Aguero(6 points- being captain), Torino managed to get the same points from 4 players Baines(2), Fellaini(3), Morrison(3) and Suarez(3).

Honorable mentions in this category also goes to Fiorentina(managed by RoysCallerAnne) and Palermo(managed by Mark) as both managed to grab 8 bonus points this weekend.

4. Dalglish Differential (Worst Matchday team selection- most points on bench)

Bad luck was roaming around Juventus and its manager Pratik last week as he lost a stellar 16 points from the total score by benching Dimitar Berbatov who had a superb match at the emirates this past week. Coupled with Sterling who was also benched by him, Pratik could have grabbed an extra 17 points along with the gameweek score of 37 points if he chose the benched duo instead of Ben Arfa and either of Michu/Pienaar/Cazorla, although it wasn’t enough to beat his opponent Isacki.

5. Garry Carrag Mole Award(for most negative points during the week)

Maximum negative points this week was 3(Three) which were shared by 3 clubs.

Juventus(manager: Pratik), AS Roma(manager: Udit) and Udinese(manager: Menly) are the winners of this award. All three of them had Rafael and Ben Arfa as the main protagonists for the negative points while Figueroa, Sagna and Mertesacker played their respective roles in getting these 3 managers Garry Craig Mole Award for this week.

 

Ligue 1 Review GW10 – Shipstontrev

AJACCIO (Ms,Red19) 58 beat MARSEILLE (Fratboy) 40

Ireland’s Ms.Red19 had the top score of the week thanks to RVP(C), Gorkss, Santi Cazorla and McAuley, giving her a comfortable victory over Fratboy, whotook a 4 point hit His points came mainly from RVP(C), Foster and Ben Arfa.Ms.Red19 is up to 15th in the table.

BREST (Shipstontrev) 50 beat LORIENT (Dr. Ennet) 43

Shipstontrev made it 9 wins out of 10 and opened up a six point gap at the the top of the table. RVP(C), Gorkss, Foster and McAuley all contributed to his score, which could have been better had he not taken an unsuccessful 4 point hit. Luckily for him the Abba fan Doctor took an 8 point hit, so RVP(C), Suarez and the same West Brom defenders left him 7 points adrift.

VALENCIENNES (!Bazzinga!) 48 beat SOCHAUX (Chazza) 44

In a close contest, the American’s VC choice of Suarez proved decisive in the absence of Juan Mata. The Liverpool striker’s point haul, together with those from Santi and Berbatov, was just enough to beat Chazza, despite his choice of RVP(C). Chazza’s defence only gained him 7 points.

Ligue 1 Review GW9 – Shipstontrev

BORDEAUX (Ryan) 72 beat BASTIA (Beavis) 49

In a week when no less than 5 managers scored 68 points, Ryan managed an extra 4 in a comprehensive victory over Beavis. The Kiwi used his 2 FTs to good effect, with significant contributions from Ba(C), RVP, Bale, Mata and Berbatov, and has climbed to fourth in the table. Beavis took a 4 point hit and gave the armband to Aguero, so he was always up against it, despite having Bale and Ba.

NICE (Lateriser) 68 beat MARSEILLE (Gervinho’s Forehead) 38

An easy 30 point win for Lateriser as he continued his progress up the league. Tevez(C), RVP and Berbatov outgunned GF, who will have taken Mark Clattenburg off his Christmas card list after the red cards for both Torres and Ivanovic. Lateriser is now ranked 515 in the overall FPL standings.

LYON (FC Borcelona) 68 beat MARSEILLE (Fratboy) 42
