Baggio Kim bags the fantasy league prizes

The megadeals that headlined the close of the January transfer window gave gameweek 26 and added air of excitement, and it seemed fitting that a host of goalfests flattered the fixtures.

Of course goals mean points in the PPP/CTN Fantasy League, and no fewer than four wily managers managed to break the 100-point barrier.

Top of the heap was the nostalgically named Baggio Kim with his team Bekchan Empire FC. Kim’s 110 points made the most of Man City’s hat-trick hero Carlos Tevez as captain for 34 points, while his squad also boasted the likes of brace-baggers Robert Huth of Stoke for 19 points and Robin van Persie of Arsenal for 12 points.

Arsenal’s Theo Walcott (11) and Man City Joe Hart (8) were also dream picks for Kim as he collects the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

The star performer of the weekend was Everton’s Louis Saha, who netted a fearsome foursome against Blackpool to earn 21 points and announce his return to public interest after a relatively barren season. Wigan youngster James McCarthy and Newcastle badboy Joey Barton both notched doubles to tally 15 points each and a place in the Dream team.

A spread of international friendlies fills the midweek but its business as usual come the weekend for gameweek 27. Transfer deadline is 6:30pm on Saturday and note that this is the last time to use up your free wildcard.
