Fulham’s Baird fires to pull in 20 points


THE last round of Premier League fixtures of 2010 rolled through in thrilling fashion during the middle of the week.

Fantasy managers have barely had time to breathe before needing to select their sides, and some unexpected star turns rewarded those who gambled wisely.

Top dog was Fulham’s Chris Baird, who netted both his team’s goals against Stoke despite playing as a defender to earn a tasty 20 points. Man City’s petulant striker Mario Balotelli hit a hat-trick past Aston Villa to yield 17 points, while his teammate Joleon Lescott and Blackpool’s Dudley Campbell both made 13 points.

The Dream team total of 135 points was one of the biggest all season, although our PPP/CTN Fantasy League sides were far from perfect.

Gameweek 20 winner was Saray Ros, who registered 81 points with his team Saray FC. Saray picked out three Dream teamers – Arshavin, Coleman and Bale – as well as putting high flying hitman Berbatov as captain for 16 points. Saray collects the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

As we welcome in the new year, our league table sees Ryan Calvert’s squad DJ Oht Mein sitting pretty on top with 1,065 points, 26 ahead of Mike Wade’s Phnom Penh Villa and a further 10 in front of Shane Herbert’s Wombat FC.

Fixtures return to relative normality this weekend for Gameweek 21.

Transfers need to be made by 6:30pm tomorrow.
