The End of the Road

After almost ten months of sleepless nights and tough decisions, the final week of the 2009/10 Fantasy Football season is finally upon us.

So here we are – Gameweek 38.

It’s been a long season, both fun and frustrating in equal measures, but would you really have it any other way?

Ruining Football has consumed a lot of my time and I hope you have enjoyed following our progress just as much as I have loved writing about it.

Our penultimate gameweek score of 84 points was more than satisfactory and saw the team move back up the overall rankings.

Captain Carlos Tevez contributed a solid 22 points, while his Manchester City team mate Adam Johnson continued to impress with two assists and two bonus points as part of his 13 point score.

There were clean sheets at the back for Patrice Evra and Leighton Baines, and Roger Johnson claimed an assist and bonus points.

The decision to bench both Villa defenders James Collins and Carlos Cuellar was vilified as they conceded three in the defeat to Manchester City at Eastlands.

Matthew Etherington also put in a stirling performance, scoring 11 points from his double gameweek, and Didier Drogba found the back of the net yet again.

This week’s final round sees us take a points hit to get in Wayne Rooney as I believe Manchester United will go out all guns blazing at home to Stoke and win easily.

The striker also takes the captain’s armband, and is joined in the squad by Sunderland’s Jordan Henderson who will sit on the bench.

The team currently sits in 42,528th place out of a total of 2,315,781 teams.

  1. Haven’t checked my team in the while, but happily I won the league I needed to win comfortably.
