GW1’s Result of Wing Fantasy Football update

Last weekend saw a welcome return of the Premier League and we got to see for the first time some of the players that will make or break teams in the PPP/Wing Fantasy League. GW1 is always a nervous affair as managers try to judge whether last season stalwarts will continue to deliver the points, or if there are new superstars arising.

With a mediocre average of just 34 points, many managers were left in the starting blocks. Those keeping faith with last year’s superstars Hazard and Kane, were rewarded with just two points for each. Similarly many managers took the plunge with Arsenal’s key signing Cech, or Liverpool’s Benteke, again collected just two points.

New signing Depay for Man Utd was also high in demand, yet only fared slightly better on three points. The dream team contained few of the ‘big team’ players, with only Man City contributing as expected.

The weekly winner of the Wing $20 prize was BunrithLoeurm’s MYTV Maestro side with a tally of 72 points, 30 from Man City’s Kompany and Toure and solid contributions from Ayew of Swansea and Mahrez with his brace for Leicester.

GW2 begins Friday this week with an evening kick off between Aston Villa and Man Utd, before an early season big crunch tie of Man City v Chelsea, transfer deadline is 15 AugAug 12:45 (Cambodia).
