Lion of Vienna Fantasy Football Update: Week 9

Look at me! I'm the Queen of England!
Look at me! I'm the Queen of England!

So as the Bolton Wanderers-based footballing world continues to turn, slowly, the Premier League motored on like the money-making leviathan that it is.

Arsenal beat yet another bottom half side, but face a tougher November which will truly test their mettle as a top four side, whilst Liverpool despatched WBA in a most un-Liverpool like manner. Any Fantasy League manager who doesn't have one of Luis Suarez or Daniel Sturridge is, frankly, an idiot.

Manchester United huffed and puffed their way to a win over Stoke City, whilst Manchester City's Joe Hart proved that he is no longer head and shoulders (geddit) over the rest of the goalkeepers in the league with another shoddy performance.

Ex-Wanderer Jussi Jaaskelainen however most certainly outshone the England keeper as he kept yet another clean sheet for West Ham.

In the Lion of Vienna League, Danny Pakinkis kept up his excellent form at the top, leading the way on 551 points from Ian Bridge who moved into second place on 539 points. Chris Mann dropped to third, whilst Gareth Entwistle entered the Champions League spots in fourth place following an excellent return of 83 points from the gameweek.

The arse-end of the league contains some familiar names. Daniel Speakman has been at the bottom since week two, whilst in a life-imitating-art fashion the team BWFC4PROMOTION have dropped into 144th place.
