Raksmey shines in inaugural gameweek

The Premier League’s latest edition blasted off over the weekend with some unexpected goal droughts causing early havoc with expectant PPP/CTN Fantasy League managers.

However, there were rich rewards to be received from players hailing from the likes of Bolton and Man City, who both ran out four-star routs over their opposition.  

The inaugural gameweek MVP came in the form of Bolton’s defensive stalwart Gary Cahill, who opened the floodgates against QPR on Saturday and helped his side keep a clean sheet to muster 13 points.

Cahill’s team-mate Ivan Klasnic also inspired with a goal and an assist to bag a dozen points, a tally equaled by the sensational double-scoring debut of Man City’s Sergio Aguero.

Our first triumphant manager is named as Yang Raksmey with his team Khmer Galaxy United. Raksmey’s unworldly selections that included top pick Cahill, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez as captain for 14 points, and also Man United’s Wayne Rooney and Newcastle’s Stephen Taylor for 9 points a piece, saw him hover about all other Earthlings with a total of 74 points. Raksmey collects his choice of either a US$20 phone voucher or an internet dongle and SIM card, as well as a T-shirt, from sponsors Cellcard.

Due to technical problems in the new look website, the administrators have offered fantasy managers another week of free transfers until Saturday evening’s deadline 5:30pm. So make the most of it while you can and pay attention to player injuries and potential killer late transfers before the window shuts at the end of the month.
