Dean Malo becomes first to century status


No prizes for guessing the top points earner in the PPP/CTN Fantasy League this week, although the foresight to pick Dimitar Berbatov as your captain would’ve proved very uselful. The ballistic Bulgarian saw his five-goal haul against Blackburn get a five-star multiplier for 25 points, the biggest individual total so far this season.

Unsurprisingly, our top manager in gameweek 15 utilised the Man United hitman as skipper for nearly half of his 102 points. Dean Malo with his side Hemacheat FC became our first weekly centurion of the campaign, and well deserved of the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard. Dean’s team also featured dream team performances from Arsenal’s Arshavin (13 points) and Man United’s Nani (12 points).

Gameweek 16 will play out this weekend as usual, with standout fixtures being a Blues battle at the Bridge and Houllier’s return to Anfield. 6:30pm on Saturday is transfer deadline.
