Well it all comes down to the final matchday. Let's hope Man U can win or keep Bayern on a draw while we NEED to beat Bolton!!

Exciting end to this season!

Matchday 10

The last matchday of the season and there is everything to play for. Will GFRay's Feyenoord do an invincible and go the season unbeaten? Will that be enough to beat AJ's table topping Bayern Munich? Lower down the table there will only be jockeying for the final positions while we see Spectral mixing his team up, presumably to maximise his selling potential for the post-season.

And there you have it! Despite a surprise loss in the last round, courtesy of two set-piece header goals of Manchester United, Feyenoord couldn't make Bayern pay for their mistakes. They'll regret missing their chances despite dominating the game with a 12-2 shot difference against lowly Bolton. As a consolation prize, GFRay will be glad to hear that his team brought home the Best Defence and Fair Play awards, while also boasting the league's best goalscorer, Andrew Johnson (11).

AJ's shrewd auction policy paid off. His purchase of Pawel Kryszałowicz, the highest rated player in the league ostensibly making the difference. The forward scored 9 goals, which was good enough for second in the competition, while also adding a league-leading 4 assists.

Spectral was the manager who made most rotations to his squad, using the most players of any manager. That gives him a lot of breathing room for player transfers ahead of Season 2. Bagging the prize for UMLBet, he also completed most challenges, giving him some additional financial leeway.

After the early resignation of Fodster, the teams of London35 and Jan were also thrown into disarray, having to play nearly all of their games with the assistant managers leading the squad, due to the absence of the managers themselves.

This wraps up the league part of Season 1, but the competition is not over yet! Next week is cup week, which will see the teams compete for the second trophy of the season. All games are played in one session, so make sure to set your teams for the whole competition. The draw is as follows:

R1:
Bayern Munich - BYE
Feyenoord - BYE
Chelsea - Bolton Wanderers
Cardiff City - Manchester United

SF:
Bayern Munich - Winners of match including Manchester United
Feyenoord - Winners of match including Chelsea

Story of this season: too many draws...

Managed to beat AJ twice, but can't win games against the others.. And to throw it away on the last day like this is just the perfect ending for this season..

Well done for running this Kaneman. It's nice to see something different on here and I think it went pretty well :)

It was good fun and well done this, Kaneman! Yes, it was only a very select group but as a pilot I think it is safe to say it was good fun and not too (time) intensive. Thanks man!

Obviously, the best manager did not win. As is custom in CM, you can muck up all season and still bring home the bacon. As Gary Lineker said, CM is a game of football and getting screwed and in the end, the Germans win. Yeah baby :)
