Phnom Penh FC go to town in fantasy league

With just six rounds left of the English Premier League, have we seen Man United reach the status of champions-elect? And in the same breath, have we seen Brenda Wade amass an unassailable lead at the top of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League standings?


For the sake of good, healthy competition, we hope the coming gameweeks keep things interesting until the very end.

During gameweek 32, 3-0 scorelines were the most prolific, with Fulham and West Brom completing the routs.

Fulham’s American midfielder Clint Dempsey has been a shining light all season and is currently third to Arsenal’s Robin van Persie and Man United’s Wayne Rooney in overall tallies.

Dempsey’s brace against Bolton made him the most prized possession of fantasy managers for the week with a total of 15 points. Just a point behind was Dempsey’s Malian team-mate Mahamadou Diarra, who was picked by exactly no one, while West Brom’s Liam Ridgewell also attained 14 points thanks to his goal as a defender past Blackburn.

Over in the Fantasy League, a well contested gameweek had Rathsophak Toun’s Phnom Penh FC emerge as the winner on 84 points.

Toun’s capital gains came from wisely selecting star man Dempsey as skipper for 30 points, as well as fielding the likes of Man United’s Paul Scholes (10) and Wayne Rooney (9).  

Toun collects his choice of an internet dongle or a US$20 phone voucher along with a T-shirt from sponsor Cellcard.

Gameweek 33 is already upon us and will conclude on Thursday with an intriguing clash of newcomers QPR and Swansea.
