Following the thrilling World Cup Finals between France and Croatia, fantasyfreaks.my’s maiden contest saw Azmiy Lakatu crowned Champion after leapfrogging Muhamad Qayyum in the final round.
Trailing Qayyum by 12 points heading to the penultimate game, with both yet to utilize their Maximum Captain chip, the odds were stacked against Azmiy. In the end, the difference maker was Thomas Muneir (Belgium) whose contribution of 24 points as captain propelled Azmiy to top the table by 10 points. Third place was claimed by Graham Pereira who led the standings in the opening round but had to ward off close competition from Saym Paloh, Datu Kharnain and Qayyum’s 2nd team, edging the trio by a single point to claim a podium finish. A nerve wrecking finale for Graham but, alas a rewarding one.
We caught up with our winners to learn a bit about them, their take on fantasy football as well as their advice to newbies on the upcoming FPL 18/19 season.
AZMIY LAKATU – CHAMPION (PRIZE – MYR 250.00)
Highest Scoring FPL Season – 2,155 (Season 2013/14)
Highest Rank Globally – 207,326 (Season 2014/15)
Hailing from Sabah, one of the most beautiful states in Malaysia enriched with natural treasures, Azmiy is a 10 year fantasy football manager veteran, engaged in it since the 2007/08 season. He is an avid follower of the Premier League and loves the fact that this game has increased his knowledge on even the smallest Premier League teams. To him, the key to doing well, is not linked to your knowledge and understanding of the BIG 6 teams but knowing players and managerial styles of the bottom 10 teams as that is the differential between average managers and top ones. He loves this game because it engages you throughout the season as you end up watching all BPL matches to scout for players and it also brings joy and excitement whenever your chosen players do well. He also feels that the fantasy community in Malaysia is growing and this brings about comradeship amongst the community. When asked about his advice to fellow enthusiast for the FPL 2018/2019 season, he humbly had this to say,
I don’t think that I’m the right person to advice others as I feel there are better and more experienced managers in Malaysia. I bet all these top guys are already researching and analyzing player performances in pre-season matches as we speak. A word of advice to newbies, a team that has famous players doesn’t necessarily mean you will win, while a team with lesser known players doesn’t mean you will loose. Winning or Losing is all about strategy, tactics, differentials and not forgetting Lady Luck! Loads of luck 🙂 Good Luck to all the managers out there and Enjoy this beautiful game!
MUHAMAD QAYYUM – RUNNER-UP (PRIZE – MYR 150.00)
Highest Scoring FPL Season – 2,113 (Season 2017/18)
Highest Rank Globally – 422,991 (Season 2017/18)
Muhamad Qayyum, a KL boy, is relatively new to fantasy football with 3 seasons under his belt. He has shown tremendous improvement in the past 3 seasons moving from a lowly 2,499,445 finish in his maiden 2015/16 season to a respectable 422,991 finish last season; jumping up 2 million places…WOW! To top it off he also finished 1st in his mini league. He acknowledged that he is new to this game and is continually observing and learning from some of the Top Mini League Admins in Malaysia. Ever since a friend introduced this game, he has been getting more and more involved with each passing season. He loves observing / researching FPL players and he hopes to do even better this coming 2018/19 season. He noticed that subconsciously his knowledge of premier league players and the league has improved tremendously since indulging in fantasy football. To all newbies out there, his message is,
This is an awesome game. It gives you the opportunity to be a real football manager while developing a footballing brain. You start looking at details in the game that you never really cared about. Give it a try guys, I bet you will love it!
GRAHAM PEREIRA – 3RD PLACE (PRIZE – MYR 100.00)
Highest Scoring FPL Season – 2,217 (Season 2015/16)
Highest Rank Globally – 28,907 (Season 2015/16)
We’ve got a Klang boy in our mix too 🙂 Graham Pereira, a self professed FPL addict got involved in this wonderful game about 4 seasons ago. He started in the 2014/15 season, finishing a mediocre 989,277 but bounced back with vengeance the next 2 seasons with consecutive top 100K Global Rank; 28,907 in 2015/16 & 69,881 in 2016/17. Ever since tasting victory in his mini league 3 years ago, he has been actively involved in administrating his own mini leagues that focus on Overall Finish (EPL Malaysia 2018/19) as well as Weekly Top Score (Klangites Mini League 18/19). If anyone is interested, please be in touch with him via Facebook Messenger, his facebook link is Graham W. Pereira.
Graham and his partner Jeffrey are also actively involved in coaching kids (under 10 & under 16). Their football club, Goodwood FC is located in Klang, Selangor. It is a self sponsored club and they are currently seeking donations so that these talented young kids can participate in the Air Asia Junior League which starts in August 2018. So if you are a Malaysian football fan, please be in touch with Graham to be part of the development of these young and gifted kids. After witnessing the good work they have been doing with these kids, fantasyfreaks.my has decided to be one of their sponsors for this coming season. It’s amazing how a little help can bring about positive change in these kids lives. Tune in to our podcast for more on Goodwood FC!
