Ravid keeps MVP on bench but still wins

Gameweek 7 saw Manchester teams maintain their stranglehold of the Premier League while former champions Chelsea took a welcome leap up the table. However, the PPP/CTN Fantasy League was really all about one club, Fulham.

A 6-0 demolition of newcomers QPR saw the Cottagers occupy nearly half of the Dream team slots, with experienced attacker Andy Johnson topping the list with 20 points thanks to a sublime hat-trick.

It was also a fine day for Johnson’s compatriot Frank Lampard of Chelsea, who blasted his own treble past Bolton to share the MVP status on 20 points.

Goals and assists also helped Man City’s Samir Nasri (17), Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge (15) and Fulham’s Bobby Zamora (14) eminent entrants in the elite eleven.

In the weekly competition, Rotana Ravid took his Ravid team to glory with an outstanding 83 points total. Rotana fielded both Lampard and Zamora, and doubled up on Luiz Suarez of Liverpool’s 6 points as his captain.

The Ravid score could have been even better had he not left star striker Johnson on the bench. He nevertheless picked up the US$20 phone voucher or internet dongle and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Euro 2012 qualifiers wipe out the domestic league action this weekend, so wait til the dust settles the following week before making transfer decisions. Deadline in at 5:30pm on Saturday October 15, ahead of another two-day gameweek opened by the historic clash of Man United v Liverpool.
