Results - Gameweek Five

Casualties (0)

There is no blood spilt this week in the Last Man Standing competition, leaving frustrated enthusiasts across the forum sat on the periphery, watching on like a substitute who can't get a game.

 

Survivors (2)

The first week of the duel between our two remaining contenders ends in a stalemate, with neither man facing any serious stress on their way into week six. Two goal in the last 15 minutes from Kevin Volland saw Leverkusen dispatch Stuttgart on Friday night, leaving @The Palace Fan with the opportunity to put his feet up and cross his fingers ahead of the weekend, but @José, whose commitment to the cause is in no doubt following his change of profile picture earlier this week, also converts in this first round of sudden death, Schalke racing into an early lead against Nurnberg this evening and going onto beat their opponents 5-2 with a man advantage.

Congratulations to both, you have now scored five points each, with at least two additional bonus points to arrive for the runner up and three for the winner. May the tug of war continue!

Mafia Wars? Derby Day? Who gives a shit. We're into the next round of sudden death here with @The Palace Fan's Frankfurt kicking off their tie with Wolfsburg as we speak.

Surprising loss at home. Wonder if the same will happen tomorrow night...

Results - Gameweek Six

Once again, the Last Man Standing competition goes without a clean winner as this weekend's events send us into the depths of sudden death.

Casualties (2... sort of)

Phil+Jones.gif

It was there, one hand on the trophy at half-time in tonight's fixture, but @José allows the final stage of the Last Man Standing Bundesliga edition to continue into a tie breaker, his chosen side Bayer Leverkusen bottling a 1-0 lead at Nurnberg, clearly buckling under the pressure after @The Palace Fan's Frankfurt suffered a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Wolfsburg and opened the door for TF365's resident Mexican.

The situation now, is that both of you can no longer add to your basic score of 5 points. However, we need to enter a tie break round to decide who is the Last Man Standing, claiming the three bonus points. You are required to choose a winning team this week, still one that hasn't got you this far, as well as a First Goalscorer of the matchday. It is up to you whether you try and pick an uncertain goalscorer from an early game or a nailed on goalscorer from a later game. Whoever's chosen player hits the target first of the two will determine the winner of the competition in the event of the chosen match winner failing to separate our two remaining contenders.

If both of your teams win (or fail) and neither of your chosen goalscorers hit the target, in an attempt to wrap this up and get other people back involved, the next gameweek will see a draw hand you the victory if the other guy's team lose the match, for this gameweek only. If both of your picks get the same result, win, lose or draw, AND your chosen goalscorers both fail to find the net, then @José will be crowned champion as his pick drew this week and @The Palace Fan lost. I know that's a slightly unfair rule change without being warned but I have to prioritise getting this round done and dusted, hope that seems fair enough.

 

Preview - Gameweek Seven

Yeah, will have to introduce the pre-emptive tie breaker in future, maybe when we get down to the last 4(?) players in the event that everyone loses.

Results - Tie Breaker

The epic duel between @The Palace Fan and @José is concluded, and this iteration of the Last Man Standing competition finally has its champion.

The Runner-Up

giphy.gif

They say Red Bull gives you wings, but it's RB Leipzig who went down in flames in their visit to Freiburg, @José's pick getting beaten handily 3-0. After a valiant campaign, TF365's resident Mexican will have to settle for second place on this occasion but takes home 2 bonus points in addition to the 5 he scored by surviving for the first five weeks of the competition. Congratulations and commiserations, @José!

 

The Last Man

giphy.gif

There is only one GIF appropriate for this moment. @The Palace Fan got his 90 minute sweating session out of the way early this time around, backing Werder Bremen to beat Dusseldorf on Friday night. Although his chosen first goalscorer of the weekend Eggestein was not amongst the scorers in Werder's 3-1 success, Leipzig's loss on Saturday meant that the goalscorer tie breaker never came into play, and The Eagles finally have something to shout about this season as one of their own wins a TF365 Last Man Standing competition. Congratulations to @The Palace Fan, who takes home the full 3 bonus points to go with the 5 points scored for picking that many consecutive winners. Keep an eye out for an updated table to see what this means for the overall standings.
