As ever Sputryk, thanks for all your work, don't worry about the cup, if you haven't got time then no problem.

After last years debacle of throwing it away in the last few weeks it's good to win the title back (should be three in a row), and in such spectacular fashion, a mighty 100+ point victory!

Had a really poor first half of the season and was still outside the top MILLION past the half way stage, ignored Leicester attacking players for far too long but managed to turn it round and finish just outside the top 20K, not my best finish but considering where I was it's a great improvement.

Used the chips well and hit the perfect week to use the triple captain, also did well not getting carried away with double game week players and avoiding the Liverpool players who were chopped and changed every week.

Martial, Townsend, DDG etc did really well for me towards the end and even Giroud (who cost me the title last year) scored a hat-trick on the final day, just wished I'd captained him.

Well done to all who took part, thanks again, and I will be back in August to defend my title!

Well done HD ; you've made it from last year's 'mostly harmless' to 'elite' :D Your reward will be docking at your local space station in due course.

And well done to Sputryk for all his time and effort he put in to managing the league; a true her of the RG forum :D

(ps any chance of a Euro 2016 tourney)?

I organised the last Euro one - if Sputryk doesn't feel like doing one, I'll happily step in.

Cheers, guys! Much appreciated.

So many times I tried to get started with the cup, but either too late at night to concentrate or no time at all. And that's also why there were few end-of-month standings - I intend to post each month. Not impressed. Must try harder for next season. I won't deny, though, that the mini-league format of the early rounds is a real bind to pull together - if I'm late, trying to back-track to work out points etc...sheesh! I do prefer that arrangement over a straight knock-out from the off as it provides for mucho tension (for anyone taking note, anyway!).

Never even gave the Euro a thought! If you want to step up again, 1982, please do. And I'm in for that. :D

Already decided to just go with the official UEFA one, I'm waiting for the squads to be finalised to make everything that little bit smoother.
