All hail Ollie L. No seriously, get down on your hands and knees and worship the ground he walks on.

For Ollie L, or rather teacher Oliver Loftkin, has left the realm of mere mortals over the weekend by catapulting himself into the heavens with a godlike display of fantasy football managing.

Ollie’s aptly named team, Goals Galore, reigned in a staggering 111 points during gameweek 28, a whole 33 points ahead of his nearest rival.

Its was the second highest total of the season so far behind Sum Sipha’s sublime 114 points in gameweek 3.

And how can this domination be so severe I hear you mutter?

Well, by not only being one of the less than 2 per cent of global managers that picked the Liverpool legend Stephen Gerrard, but by also giving him the captain’s armband to capitalise on his phenomenal hat-trick against Merseyside rivals Everton for 44 points

Even more unbelievable was Mr L’s other top picks of Blackburn striker David Hoilett and Man United hitman Wayne Rooney, who both bagged braces to earn 13 fantasy points a piece.

Ollie, we salute you, and there’s no-one else even close to your worthiness for the weekly prizes of either an internet dongle or US$20 phone voucher as well as a T-shirt from generous sponsors Cellcard.

The Reds’ double-edged gameweek also allowed them to produce a pair of 12-point providers for the Dream team.

Defender Martin Kelly and forward Luiz Suarez conjured up assists for their dazzling dozens.

With FA Cup fixtures dissecting the coming weekend, gameweek 29 carries over to next Wednesday night, when title chasers Man City welcome a resurgent Chelsea.

Make your transfers by 6:30pm tomorrow.
