Berbatov hat trick yields top banana


Gameweek 5 of our PPP/CTN Fantasy League showed just how lucrative picking players with goals and assists can be. Man United’s red hot striker Dimitar Berbatov saw his historic hat trick convert to 17 points for the best individual tally of the week.

Many of the top team hauls boasted the Bulgarian hitman, including our weekly winner Banana Jek with his side Banana, who managed to peel away from the bunch with a score of 86 points. Other notable inclusions in the Banana eleven came from Chelsea duo Florent Malouda (14) and Ashley Cole (12, doubled to 24 as captain), as well as Blackburn goalscoring defender Christopher Samba (9). Jek collects the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt courtesy of our sponsors Cellcard.

Choices for the next gameweek will need to be made by 5:30pm on Saturday, so keep an eye on injury news and analyse the fixtures well.

A whopping 350 teams have now been registered, and 87 points separates the top 100, so close attention is needed every week to give yourself a chance at the overall prize of a 3.5G iPad.
