Brenda wades in for another fantasy win

With just eight nail biting rounds left of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League, every point becomes increasingly important and squad selections need careful consideration. Gameweek 30 favoured those who opted away from the big guns, with the four-star victory for Stoke lavishing rewards to managers who picked from the Potters.

Many a manager’s favourite this season, Charlie Adam, was the again to prove a wise choice as his brace and bonus handed the Blackpool midfielder an unparalleled 15 points.

Chelsea defender David Luiz started to justify his US$35.4 million price tag with a goal and bonus to earn 14 points.

Stoke goal grabbers Higginbotham (13), Pennant (14) and Walters (13) also made the Dream team, while another intelligent inclusion was Wigan’s Tom Cleverley for 13 points.

Last season’s triumphant champion Brenda Wade reminded us why she’s a fantasy league force to be reckoned with by winning gameweek 30 with a score of 86 points. Her side AV Cambodia, which is currently sixth in the overall table and still on for a title defence, featured both of the top performers in Adam and Luiz and she could’ve done even better had she not put Frank Lampard as her captain for just 6 points.

Brenda collects a US$20 phone card to put in her champion’s prize of a 3G phone, as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

A break for international fixtures this weekend holds the league in suspended animation once again, and the next gameweek will commence on April 2 with the usual transfer deadline of 6:30pm Cambodian time.
