Well, what a year it has been. During the year we saw a thread almost hit the fifteen season landmark for the first time and I'm sure if won't be long till we see that figure surpassed. Other highlights during the year saw a story reach 100 pages and a DTL reach 200 pages. Whilst these are not all-time record, they are the most successful threads since the old EAUK forum days in 2010.
The CMS Fantasy Premier League for 2015/16 was won by @Sloosh, however he hasn't started this season so well and currently sits 10th with 793 points. @Zz CLUBLEY zZ is currently in first place with 898 points, @Chris is second with 890 and @Ahmer50x third with 888 points. However with three people being within 20 points of Ben and 9 within 100 everything is all still to play for.
Whilst FIFA 16 was a fairly quiet year on the forums, FIFA 17 has been more active. The new Journey mode and the new Total Club Management and Financial System features in Career Mode might be part of the reason behind this increase in activity but the high quality of threads from regular users is also likely to have played a part in encouraging newer users to start threads.
FIFA 17 marks 10 years of Career Mode stories so later on in the year we will not only have the traditional End of Game awards but the anniversary awards, previously seen at the end of FIFA 12 to mark 5 years of Career Mode stories, will make their return.
Every year we finish with the forum awards so with out further ado let the awards begin.
Even though we had awards at the end of FIFA 16, all threads during 2016 are eligible for these awards.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank @ale85bg for all his help with the graphics for this thread.
