Gameweek 36 proved that lightning can strike twice in the CTN/PPP Fantasy League, with Liverpool’s sensational Maxi Rodriguez hauling in yet another incredible hat-trick to top the Dream team with 20 points.

Another wise choice for fantasy managers was Wolves striker Stephen Fletcher, whose brace and assist yielded a 16-point total. Meanwhile, Stoke midfielder Jermaine Pennant’s goal and assist against his former club Arsenal granted him a respectable tally of 13 points.

Just as two weeks ago when Maxi was also the star attraction, the gameweek’s top team is managed by an employee of Cellcard and thus is exempt from collecting the US$20 phone card and T-shirt. Serey Ma with his team CTN Kun Khmer FC amassed an unprecedented 87 points through the likes of Maxi, Fletcher and selected skipper David Silva of Man City for 16 points.

However, the CTN boxing supremo made five transfers during the gameweek and would have excluded himself of prize contention regardless of his employment status.

The goodies instead will go to the familiar fantasy force of Ou Veasna (under the managerial moniker of Cikaro 2010) with his side Giant Devil United on 74 points. Fletcher and Silva also adorned Veasna’s squad, as did Everton defender Sylvain Distin for 11 points.

This weekend’s penultimate round of Premier League fixtures sees all teams play once, with the Tuesday night’s rematch of FA Cup final foes Man City and Stoke signing off the gameweek.

Will Man United blaze through Blackburn to claim their record-breaking 19th title? Will relegation battles featuring the bottom seven sides produce a barrage of goals? Make your transfers with deep consideration by 5:30pm on Saturday.
