Results - Gameweek Four

Casualties (1)

No massacres this week, but the roster is whittled down to just three players as @Pyfish best run of correct picks this season came to an end, FC Twente denied the three points at home to Willem II by a late Evangelos Pavlidis equaliser.

Congratulations on making it this far - you have scored 3 points and could still receive an additional bonus point for 3rd place if there is a tie for 2nd.

 

Survivors (3)

Feyenoord took one of the most emphatic wins we've seen this season early on Saturday afternoon, three goals in each half allowing them to hit VVV-Venlo for six, paving the way for league leader @Viva la FCB and @Rucksackfranzose, looking for his first Last Man Standing victory, into a fifth Gameweek. Also securing a fourth consecutive correct pick in what has probably been the best collective performance in any round this season was @...Dan, who backed Heerenveen ahead of their ultimately comfortable 3-0 victory against ADO Den Haag.

Congratulations to all three of you, that's 4 points each, with the opportunity to keep building this run and bonus points guaranteed for each of our top three. Please move along to Gameweek Five to make your next picks.

Preview - Gameweek Five

Below are the fixtures for Gameweek Five, which start on Saturday this time, accompanied by the updated league table. There is a rearranged fixture on Tuesday this week which is not a part of our Gameweek. Again, we will be making our tie break picks as insurance against a 0% win rate so please choose:

  • A match-winning team that you haven't used up to this point (see above). If nobody picks a match winner, the round will be settled by the tie break picks, starting with...
  • An anytime goalscorer, which doesn't have to be from the same game as your match-winner and isn't restricted in any other way, e.g. you can choose the same player as your unused pick from last week. If more than one of you picks a goalscorer, the one who scored earliest in their game will be the winner, and if none of you pick a correct goalscorer, or more than one of you choose the winning one, the round will be decided by the final section of the tie break...
  • The time of the opening goal in the randomly selected fixture, PSV vs Feyenoord. Whoever gets closest wins the round.

Results - Gameweek Five

Casualties (1)

Just one of our three surviving competitors fell this week. @Viva la FCB opted not to use the Ajax card still sitting in his back pocket after the first four rounds and instead backed FC Groningen, who could only rescue a point at home after trailing FC Emmen at half-time.

Viva ends this round with 5 more points on the board having made 4 correct picks and finished in 3rd place for a bonus point. He extends his lead at the top of the standings, having comfortably outscored Mel81x in this round, but those still kicking might close the gap yet.

 

Survivors (2)

In what is now officially the strongest performance of the season so far, we have a pair of survivors who have made 5 consecutive correct picks. The minimum 8 points that will go to the winner here will mark the highest score of the campaign. @Rucksackfranzose was the first to make it to Gameweek Six after AZ Alkmaar profited from two own goals and could even afford to give one back to FC Twente themselves in a comfortable 4-1 win. Also in this final showdown is @...Dan, who saved his Ajax card to play at the opportune moment, first half goals from Neres and Tagliafico seeing the runaway leaders past PEC Zwolle on the road. When the scores are updated after this round, @...Dan will become the closest rival to league leader @Viva la FCB and so his incentive to extend his run here is significant.

Congratulations to you both, 5 points on the board plus at least 2 bonus points for second place. Which one of you will take the Eredivisie crown?

Preview - Gameweek Six

The next set of fixtures start on Friday. I won't go into detail on the tie-breaker rules again but I will need you to pick:

  • A match winner that you haven't yet used.
  • An anytime goalscorer from any game.
  • The time of the first goal in the randomly selected fixture, PEC Zwolle vs VVV.

Below is the current table and the next set of fixtures:

Good luck!

Good luck to you too. I hope we both last another few weeks so we can get as many points as possible. I'll be hoping for a PEC win xD

Gameweek Six - Results

We have a winner following what has been without a doubt the best and most competitive round of the season - congratulations to @Rucksackfranzose! A timely conclusion to Round Six ahead of the international break.

In a surprising turn of events, @Rucksackfranzose's PEC Zwolle succeed where @...Dan's Feyenoord failed this weekend. With Feyenoord the stand out favourites for a victory this weekend, hosting FC Emmen on Saturday, and @Rucksackfranzose having picked them in a previous round, @...Dan appeared to be in the pound seat for this gameweek, but was let down when a 79th minute penalty from Michael de Leeuw resulted in a draw. It was over to PEC Zwolle on Sunday lunchtime to decide whether or not the tie breaker would be needed, and another penalty in the exact same minute of the game proved to be decisive in the home side's favour, Thomas Lam securing 3 points for his side and this round of the Last Man Standing League for @Rucksackfranzose.

The full scores for this round are as follows:

9 points (6 correct picks + 3 bonus for 1st place) - @Rucksackfranzose

7 points (5 correct picks + 2 bonus for 2nd place) - @...Dan

5 points (4 correct picks + 1 bonus for 3rd place) - @Viva la FCB

3 points (3 correct picks) - @Pyfish

2 points (2 correct picks) - @Mel81x, @DeadLinesman, @nudge, @RandoEFC, @Tommy, @Lucas, @Michael, @Bluewolf, @Storts, @Stan

0 points - @CaaC (John), @McAzeem

FC Emmen are bottom of the league and yet have managed to wreak absolute chaos throughout this round of Last Man Standing. They have been on a five game unbeaten run starting in Gameweek Two of our competition here, accounting for 9 of the 15 points they've scored all season.

They wiped out nine people in Gameweek Three by beating Utrecht, Viva in Gameweek Five by drawing with Groningen and Dan in Gameweek Six by drawing with Feyenoord.

So in total, of the 15 people that were eliminated to allow Rucks to win this round, FC Emmen were responsible for 11 of them across 3 different gameweeks. I think the least he can do is buy an FC Emmen shirt. xD

Haha think he's found a new 2nd club to follow! 

Or maybe we've just found another curse or jinx to add to our name...
