No Name claims title with mind over Mata

111130_23b

With the two Manchester mammoths and high firing Arsenal all held to 1-1 draws over the weekend, managers of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League needed expert selections to prosper in gameweek 13.

Head and shoulders above the rest in terms of individual tallies was Chelsea’s summer signing Juan Mata. The 23-year-old Spanish maestro, who was enticed to join the London giants by compatriot Fernando Torres, played his heart out during their 3-0 walloping of Wolves, scoring one and setting up the other two to amass a sublime 17 points.  

Tottenham’s towering Togolese tormentor Emmanuel Adebayor returned sharply from midweek national team duties to blast a brace past the Baggies and bag 14 points.

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s embattled captain John Terry proved his worth as a defender with a lucrative goal for 12 points.

A sure fire way to the top of the weekly charts is to maximise the doubling effect of your skipper pick. This couldn’t have been better demonstrated by our gameweek winner Sok Chamrong, whose team No_Name broke out of anonymity to register 81 points after astutely arming Mata with the armband. Indeed, Chamrong had drafted the midfielder into his squad especially for the gameweek, so his prize of either an internet dongle or US$20 phone card as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard is well justified.

Only Man City stalwart Vincent Kompany featured in both Chamrong’s side and the Dream team, although Arsenal backliner Thomas Vermaelen, who netted for both sides on Saturday, helped out with 9 points.

The usual transfer deadline of 6:30pm on Saturday applies for gameweek 14, and the expectation is for fantasy teams to be awash with Sky Blue as leaders Man City entertain newcomers Norwich at their impenetrable home fortress.
