Vann Daravy victorious with his Sporting Club

120919_23

The CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League had been flying high for its opening exchanges, but gameweek four brought things back down with a bump as managers struggled to muster any points total past a half-century.

The string of high-scoring routs by the likes of Arsenal, Man United and Fulham would usually point to some rich pickings, but it was the lesser-known stars that took the spotlight over the weekend to bamboozle many a fantasy team.

The Dream team’s top individual was Man United’s brand-spanking-new signing Alexander Buttner.

The 23-year-old Dutch defender unlocked the Wigan defence for a spectacular goal as well as setting up another and keeping a clean sheet at the back to earn 17 points. Not a bad debut, really.

Over in our own league competition, prolific Cambodian fantasy team manager Vann Daravy collected yet another gameweek title as one of his sides, Daravy Sporting Club, amassed 73 points to stand clear of the chasing pack.

Daravy’s wise choice of bringing in Arsenal’s Lucas Podolski as captain for his only transfer of the week paid dividends for 16 points, and star selections of Tottenham’s Gareth Bale (11) and Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov (13) also carried the squad to glory.

For his trouble, Daravy collects a $20 phone voucher and a T-shirt from sponsor Cellcard.

Gameweek five sets up a sizzling weekend of top-notch entertainment, including a Super Sunday that features the heavyweight clashes of Liverpool v Man United and Man City v Arsenal.
