Razor edges it in blizzard hit week


With all but three Premier League fixtures snowed off over the weekend, PPP/CTN Fantasy League managers could easily forgive themselves for a poor tally. Our weekly winner, Aizhan Zhukeyeva, amassed just 46 points in claiming the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

His team Razor cut through the icy gameweek 18 with inspired inclusions such as Tim Cahill as captain for a best possible bounty of 26 points. Other Dream team picks for Aizhan were Leighton Baines (8 points) and Morten Gamst Pedersen (5 points), while the majority of his squad were inactive.

The Dream team itself was actually impossible to field due to team constraints, with five Sunderland players in the line up. The Black Cats’ game winner Danny Welbeck provided a solid 9 points for managers, as did Blackburn’s goalscoring defender Ryan Nelsen.

An avalanche of fixtures is ready to fall just after Christmas with three gameweeks blitzing through in the space of seven days, so keep a close eye on your tight transfer windows. Next deadline is 6:30pm this Sunday, with the Arsenal v Chelsea blockbuster taking the limelight.
