Gary Ginger snaps up Fantasy League prize

Gameweek 4 of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League was essentially a tale of one city – Manchester. Home town rivals City and United once again took the limelight with stellar performances that included hat-tricks for both side’s celebrity hitmen, Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney.

Although both took top Dream team honours with 17 points a piece, it was Rooney’s second successive treble which sees him soar well clear of the pack on 55 points so far this season – a generous reward for his hefty 12.3 million price tag.

Nearly the entire Man United squad was worthy of selection, with brace-bagging striker Javier Hernadez grabbing a dozen points, a tally matched by new team-mate Phil Jones, who set up two goals despite being a full back.

Our weekly winner was interestingly the only manager capable of amassing treble figures. Gary Ginger with his team musliesmissfits made a nice round 100 points to scoop the Cellcard sponsored prize of either a US$20 phone voucher or an internet dongle as well as a T-shirt.

Gary’s line up included both Mancunian MVPs up in thefrontline, with Rooney as captain for 34 points, and also Dream team picks of Stoke’s Jonathan Walters (10) and Phil Jones.

The next gameweek fits snuggly inside of this Saturday and Sunday and includes the headlining clash of Man United and Chelsea.

Transfer deadline is 5:30pm on Saturday and with seven sides in midweek European action, keep an eye out for any late injuries.
