Two players managed a formidable 15 points for managers of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League over the weekend. Anyone who put New Zealand’s World Cup hero Ryan Nelsen as their captain should be revered as a prophet. Luckily, a more obvious choice of skipper in Arsenal’s Samir Nasri had a fair few teams boosted from the 30-point bounty.
One such outfit to utilise the points haul of the fancy footed Frenchman was our weekly winner Andy Heath with his team Jack’s Shadow. Andy eclipsed all others with a total of 80 points to claim the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.
Other profitable players which saw the light in Andy’s team included the Blackburn duo of defender Phil Jones for 9 points and goalkeeper Paul Robinson for 9 points.
Elsewhere in the realms of the dreamteam, West Brom’s Peter Odemwingie netted a respectable 13 points from his double strike against Newcastle, while Stoke’s Matthew Etherington made yet another appearance with a tidy 9 points.
So onto the next gameweek, and there doesn’t seem to be a sufficient superlative to place in front of Sunday. With a London derby between champions Chelsea and the skyrocketing Spurs as well as a top of the table titanic clash of Arsenal against Man United, the weekend is sure to be capped off in fine style. Watch out for those midweek Champions League casualties before you make your transfers by 6:30pm on Saturday.
