So Pea’s Rose Man blossoms in gameweek 11

There was no real shortage of goals in gameweek 11, with half the fixtures enjoying tallies of four or more, so the Cellcard Fantasy League managers in general scored well. Prized possession once again was Liverpool’s enigmatic Uruguayan hitman Luis Suarez, who netted twice and assisted another to collect 16 points. It’s no wonder his value has gone up by a cool million pounds since his return from suspension on September 29.

Another gerent of the gameweek was Southampton striker Rickie Lambert, whose goal and two assists granted him 15 points as well as lifting his club to the heady heights of third in the league.

Sunderland’s game winning goal scoring defender Phil Bardsley, who also notched a decisive strike in their midweek Cup tie against Chelsea, equaled Lambert’s sum of 15, although only one in a thousand managers had placed faith in the subversive Scotsman.

The weekly competition had So Pea with his team Rose Man crowned with thorns for amassing a sweet-smelling total of 96 points.

So Pea sprang up out of the managerial manure of the gameweek, with his closest rivals on 89, thanks to picking Suarez as captain for 32 points, as well as Dream team selections of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard (13), Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel (13) and Southampton’s Adam Lallana (12). So Pea takes home the $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

The precious last few places in the World Cup next year are at stake over the coming days as nations vie in home-and-away play-off fixtures. There are also a whole host of international friendlies, so the Premier League will return with the Merseyside derby on November 23.
