Nolan scores a score for fantasy managers

Crash, bang, wallop, what a weekend in the Premiership. After a bleak few weeks for managers in our CTN/PPP Fantasy League, some high scoring blockbusters have made things heat up once again for some impressive points hauls.

With a Dream Team total of 136 points up for grabs, our teams couldn’t quite reach the magical century mark but nevertheless made for some fierce competition.

The magnificent Magpies boasted the top two points performers, with hat trick hero Nolan registering a raptuous 20 points and Ameobi’s double-double in goals and assists earning 18 points. Also of note were Fulham’s brace bagging Dempsey for 16 points, and Man United’s Devilish duo of Vidic and Nani for 14 points a piece.

And so onto the weekly winner, which yet again had to come in third place behind two unregistered louts. Francis Maynard with his side Bandidos_Nairobrers claim the spoils through an 85 points tally. Francis’ main thrust came from pitching Nani as captain alongside the sensational Nolan, as well as Vidic at the back. Francis currently resides in Kenya – hence the Nairobi reference – but his prize of a US$20 Cellcard voucher and T-shirt will pass to one lucky friend in Phnom Penh.

A full house of action packed matches beckons once again this weekend, so have those transfers ready after the midweek games in Europe and before the 6:30pm deadline Saturday.
