Big Chhlang breaks the century barrier

Gameweek 36 as expected generated some tasty tallies in the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League, due to the double doses of fixtures for a few teams.

Top stats came from the unexpected by not unheralded Angel Rangel of Swansea, who kept a clean sheet in one game and scored in the other to command 16 points.  

The Spanish defender with a superhero name was a point ahead of Manchester City’s Joe Hart, who didn’t concede a goal in either of his matches thanks to a string a saves.

In the weekly competition, Rithy Long’s superbly named Big Chhlang FC notched up a sensational 105 points, making him the only centurion of the week.

Rithy’s squad featured a captain’s pick of Gareth Bale for 24 points, with star stopper Joe Hart (15) and Tottenham defender Kyle Walker (12) pitching in  for good effect. Unfortunately, Rithy is a member of staff at sponsors Cellcard and so is ineligible for the prizes of a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt.

These goodies instead pass down to Nicolas Seng and his team The Win FC, which equaled Ollie L’s Disbanded FC total of 97 points but utilised one less transfer.

The overall standings see Colin Brown’s Scooter City FC still parked in top spot and enjoying a comfortable 81-point over second-placed Torres Seng’s The Whites FC. It would appear the title is Colin’s to lose, and he should more or less wrap things up with a solid score in the penultimate gameweek, which extends to next Tuesday.

Wigan’s trip to Arsenal has both sides chasing vital points to try to break out of the drop zone or hone in on a Champions League berth respectively.

Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Wednesday has kept them outside of the Champions League places, so they will be seeking victory at Stoke, while Chelsea tackle Aston Villa away in an attempt to consolidate third place.
