Lion of Vienna Suite Fantasy Football Update!

Chris takes a look at how we all got on this past weekend

Cheat boys!

So another weekend of disappointment on the Bolton Wanderers front, as we could only manage (or perhaps were lucky to get) a point at home against Sheffield Wednesday - but as our world stops turning, the larger footballing world continues to spin.

Manchester United secured a fantastic point against title challengers Southampton, and that is really something to be proud of for the former league champions. Champions-elect Manchester City defeated West Ham United, Chelsea picked up where they left off in 2007 as they cheated their way to a win at home to Cardiff City.

Liverpool picked up a draw against Newcastle United, and media darlings Arsenal continued to steamroller lower-half opposition much as they have in the last decade - but their true test lies in the upcoming weeks as they start to play proper teams unlike the cannon fodder that they have despatched to date.

Fantasy Football-wise, Danny Pakinkis and 'Team Football' continue to lead the way on a fantastic 496pts, though he only collected 50 points this gameweek. Chris Mann and 'Burnden Aces' now has a small lead over third place which currently has three teams on 471pts.

On a personal note, I continued my fantastic and almost unbelievable rise from the lower reaches of the division to a heady 90th place - if any of you would like any tips or ideas on how to revitalise your own pathetic efforts then you know where to find me.

Team of the Week

Boaz Myhill (West Bromwich Albion) 9pts

Angel Rangel (Swansea City) 12pts, Liam Ridgwell (West Bromwich Albion) 9pts, Chico Flores (Swansea City) 9pts

Eden Hazard (Chelsea) 18pts, Mesut Ozil (Real Madrid) 15pts, Kevin Mirallas (Everton) 13pts, Jonathan De Guzman (Swansea City) 11pts

Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) 16pts, Bryan Ruiz (Fulham) 14pts, Roberto Soldado (Tottenham Hotspur) 12pts
