Sopheng steers his crazy cattle to victory

Player of the week Sami Nasri of Arsenal scored one goal and set up another against Man City. AFP

The weekend provided some thrilling moments from the Premier League, giving fantasy managers ample opportunity to cheer and curse their chosen individuals.

Standout star of the week was the exceptional Arsenal midfielder Sami Nasri, who broke Man City fans hearts with an explosive display of skill and speed, scoring one and setting up another to grab 14 points for his wise suitors.

Man United’s Javier Hernandez was another perfect little pea in the pod, as his brace bagging exploits earned managers 13 points, while Birmingham’s goal scoring defender Liam Ridgewell also notched a lucky 13 points.

Other dream team players of note were Liverpool’s revival sparkplug Sotirios Kyrgiakos for 11 points and Birmingham zippy frontman Nikola Zigic, also for 11 points.

Our top manager of gameweek 9 was In Sopheng with his team SC Wild Heifer. Sopheng kept his herd nicely in line to total 72 points, in large part thanks to captain Florent Malouda for 16 points, as well as dream team inductees Ashley Cole for 9 points, and Kevin Nolan for another 9.

However, Sopheng is a sports translator at The Post and is thus exempt from collecting the weekly prize of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from Cellcard.

It therefore passes to Mr Thearin with his side BMM Galaxy FC on 71 points.

With no midweek interruptions for the top teams, expect some heated battles at the weekend. Transfer deadline is the usual 5:30pm Saturday.
