Costa* Hazard* Eriksen* Silva* Kane Mata M. Diouf* Rooney
A great day for Poser masks a day when squad players rather than star players scored for their teams, meaning that everything is delicately poied going into the remaining fixtures. A striker setting on fire could yet make all the difference. So much still to play for, but Poser choosing Pelle over Hazard at the moment is massively paying dividends.
Sweet! I'm delighted to have made the final, TBH. There was a time there where it didn't look likely - I appear to have well and truly killed off Danny Ings' ability to score a goal. Other than that, my team has mostly been ok. Aguero finally pulled his weight, too, after that Remy fiasco.
After three months of drafting, tears of frustration, asset stripping and celebrating goals. It's come down to the final week. Only one of the league champions can win the inter-division title and become GoalGetters Champions 2015.
Dan started poorly but took the greatest advantage of his asset strips in the game and holds the record for most points in a week reaching double figures. Since then he has proven dominant and is the favourite for the title. However with Aguero on all three surviving teams, goals from Eden Hazard and Charlie Austin could prove the deciding factor.
Poser had a very different journey to the final. His bold play to take Kane first in the draft proved to inspired as both Aguero and Costa floundered in front of goal for the first half of the tournament. Poser led after one week, but stared relegation in the face just two weeks later. Since then it's been a dig in and survive challenge, Posernborg managing to put together a top squad just in the nick of time to eliminate the dominant Drumstrikers. Kane and Rooney ate solely under his ownership as well as Graziano Pelle who he will hope can repeat his brace last week.
*wanky third person paragraph incoming*
Wolverhampton Wolverers have had the sturdiest campaign to date put of the three, barely at risk of elimination. Securing their place early on in a block of three sides at the top, eventually overcoming the threats of Hanktar Donegal and Paper Mache Monaco. The drafting of both Giroud and Sakho as first picks proved to be inspired, as well as securing the services of Benteke. With Sakho now out injured and traded, liony wolfy hopes[ will lie with GoalGetters top scorer Giroud and Romelu Lukaku.
Only on team can win. Whoever gets the most goals wins.
In the result of a tie, those tied will play an extra week to find a winner.
The winner becomes GoalGetters champion and will hold aloft the MHTL Memorial Trophy.
With just three fixtures left, I've taken the lead. It could have been almost home and hosed, but I made a glaring error when I traded out Ulloa when asset-stripping Aguero. I've now missed out on three goals. Its finely balanced ready for the fixtures tomorrow.
