Tchoyis R Us are victorious


Arsenal’s second half demolition of North London nemeses Tottenham was perhaps the most explosive news of the weekend, but big wins for Chelsea, West Brom and Man City also kept things lively in the PPP/CTN Fantasy Football League.

The Gunners’ English winger Theo Walcott helped seal their 5-2 win with a stunning double in quick succession on Sunday, and claimed 15 fantasy points to reignite his somewhat mediocre season.

Man City’s Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov also managed to match the top haul of 15 points, thanks to twice setting up goals for his team-mates whilst keeping things air-tight at the back.

Chelsea stalwart Frank Lampard proved to his manager he still has what it takes with a captain displays of a goal and assist for 14 points. Stoke City centre back Matthew Upson was another on 14 points due to his strike and clean sheet.  

Top of the managerial tree for gameweek 26 was Johnny Swaine with his comically named side Tchoyis R Us. Johnny amassed a stellar score of 80 points, well clear of his nearest rivals.

With Lampard as skipper for 28 points, Johnny needed just one other Dream team selection to secure him the weekly spoils. West Brom’s brace bagging frontman Peter Odemwingie was swapped in especially for the gameweek to contribute 13 points.

Mr Swaine takes home either an internet dongle or US$20 phone voucher as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Gameweek 27 is another snug fit into the two-day weekend, with blockbusters opening and closing affairs.

Liverpool welcome Arsenal in Saturday’s early kickoff, while Tottenham host Man United in Sunday’s concluding tie.

Delay your transfer picks until after tonight’s international friendlies to avoid unwanted injury pitfalls, but get them done before the usual deadline of 6:30pm on Saturday.

With just a dozen gameweeks left to exert your managerial mastery, the overall standings see Henry Verey’s VoxClamantis remains at the summit on 1,551 points.

However, 2010 champion Brenda Wade with her team AV Cambodia is 19 points adrift in second place, and the top ten are within 100 points.
