The Pchum Ben holiday meant the results from gameweek 6 of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League had a belated publication, but better late than never.
Finally, Man United show they are comprised of humans after all and could only offer the prodigious Nani with 10 points as Dream team fodder.
Top marks went to Newcastle’s Sengalese striker Demba Ba, whose exemplary hat-trick past Blackburn secured 17 points for wise fantasy managers.
Next best was Chelsea’s diminutive Brazilian playmaker Ramires with a brace to earn 15 points. Arsenal’s Dutch skipper and experienced goal getter Robin van Persie also netted twice to grab 13 points in the fantasy league.
The team that made the loudest boom during the week, although only by a single point, was Sonic Theng with his side SonicFC. Theng amassed 82 points through selections such as Nani as his skipper for 20 points and fellow Dream teamers Alex Song, Gareth Bale, Robin van Persie and Joe Hart in goal.
Theng scoops the weekly bounty of either a US$20 phone voucher or an internet dongle as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.
An intriguing gameweek 7 is in store for this weekend with the Merseyside derby opening the action on Saturday and the North London derby concluding matters on Sunday night. Transfer deadline is at 5:30pm on Saturday.
