Tumoo too good in GW21

Only one match of the Cellcard Fantasy League’s Gameweek 21 featured less than two goals, so scores were expected to be bloated for fantasy managers. However, your wits were still needed to be about you with choice selections not exactly at the tip of the tongue.

Step forward Sunderland winger Adam Johnson, formerly of Man City, who had netted just a single time during the current season. The 26-year-old Englishman bagged a magnificent hat-trick and assist at Fulham to lift his club off the foot of the table, and in doing so earn 22 points in the fantasy league.

A less than small minority of managers managed to include Johnson in their teams, while the league’s most popular player Luis Suarez of Liverpool is the pride of more than half of them. The Uruguayan hotshot made a welcome return to the Dream team with a brace in their thrilling tie at Stoke for 13 points.

Three defenders – namely Man City’s Aleksander Kolarov, Chelsea’s Ashley Cole and Everton’s Leighton Baines – notched up 12 points a piece, while Sunderland’s Ki Sung-Yueng also danced to a dozen.

Over in the weekly competition, some high tallies fell foul of the rules that prohibit collection of prizes for unregistered members, while others were caught out by excessive transfers. Nith Poch and her side Aston Memot missed out on her own hat-trick of gameweek wins this campaign after her 89-point total was created thanks to seven transfers. Pisei Hin, also on 89, was unable to triumph with his team Giant United as he is a staff member of the Phnom Penh Post.

Thus the Cellcard goodies of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt fall to Pheak Moo with his side Tumoo FC on 89 points. Pheak naturally had Suarez as captain for 26 points, while a wise transfer in of Baines (12) and Dream team picks of Southampton defender Jose Fonte (9) and West Ham midfielder Mark Noble (11) took him past the winning post.

Gameweek 22 fills out the long weekend, with the Chelsea v Man United blockbuster slated for Sunday.

Cellcard’s Facebook competition was as popular as ever, and the question “Which match will have the highest total score?” was answered correctly by 26 users as Stoke v Liverpool.

However, the tie-break question of the correct scoreline saw three users guess one goal off at 5-2 to Liverpool. Socheat Sous was judged to have won the lucky draw to receive the $10 phone voucher.
