So Chelsea were finally brought down from the clouds with a smacking 1-0 defeat at the hands of Man City, newly crowned Captain fantastic Carlos Tevez scoring the decisive goal. And lo, no Chelsea names grace the dream team board this week, much to the chagrin of many a fantasy manager keen to extend the scrumptious earnings from the Londoners squad.
With other top names failing to prove their worth, the weekly totals in our CTN/PPP Fantasy league seem bound in mediocrity, with the best effort amassing a mere 68 points. Hor Siveng has yet to register by email, so his winning side SecretBoY FC will remain anonymous as the prizes pass on down the list. Mr Black’s Black Team FC with 67 points was a weekly newcomer, and thus also excluded itself of the prize.
Thus, third placed Soknarun ROS with his side Special Class 2010 on 66 points claimed the Cellcard US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt. Special students included a double of dozens from Man United’s Nani and Arsenal’s Nasri, as well as Birmingham defender Roger Johnson (8 points) and captain pick Wayne Rooney for 10 points.
Top rated individual of the gameweek was the brace bagging Black Cat Bent on 13 points. Other dream picks of note included West Brom’s Thomas (11) and Odemwingie (9), and Bolton’s Petrov (10).
Next week’s transfer decisions need to be made by the usual 5:30pm on Saturday deadline so start analyzing the form books now.
