Nathan, Than better than other managers


Gameweek 23’s midweek mayhem in the PPP/CTN Fantasy League heralded some high scores for managers, despite no team netting more than three in a match.

The week’s star player was Tottenham Welsh wunderkind Gareth Bale, who banged in a brace and helped his side keep a clean sheet for 15 fantasy points.

Bale now boasts the second-best total from the season, behind Arsenal’s dominating Dutchman Robin van Persie.

Bale’s diminutive midpark colleague Luka Modric also put in a sterling effort, with his goal and assist amassing 12 points.

Two other players featured dozen-point tallies: Sunderland striker Frazier Campbell with a goal and assist and Newcastle’s sublime stopper Tim Krul, who saved all on the day including a penalty.

Two managers shared equal billing from the gameweek. CTN football commentator Serey Nathan proved he can talk the talk and walk the walk with his team Nathan Bird FC. Nathan registered 93 points, an amount equalled by Vannet Tann’s team Kosomac. However, Nathan is an employee of Cellcard’s sister company CTN and thus is ineligible for prizes.

So Than takes home all the spoils – his choice of an internet dongle or a US$20 phone voucher, as well as a T-shirt from sponsor Cellcard.

Than’s squad included Fulham’s Clint Dempsey as captain for 18 points, as well as Dream teamers Bale, Krul and Swansea’s Scott Sinclair.

Gameweek 24, already under way since Saturday, concludes tonight with the Liverpool v Tottenham showpiece.
