Lion of Vienna Suite Fantasy Football Update

New, comment

As we head into another boring international break, it's time to review this past weekend's Fantasy League comings and goings

"I am the one and only, ain't nobody I'd rather be"

Another week in the world's most exciting and dynamic league comes to an end. Atletico Madrid won again, Barcelona won again, and Real Madrid won again - La Liga is great!

However joking aside (yes it was a joke), the Premier League gave us a moderately exciting weekend, the disappointment of Manchester United's victory aside - Liverpool won again, Arsenal showed hints of being back to their normal selves as they toiled against West Bromwich Albion, and Everton lost because Roberto Martinez 'ain't all that'.

In terms of Fantasy Football, Liverpool's strikeforce of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez again proved their worth with a goal apiece, along with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero who scored against Everton. Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal couldn't keep up his excellent early season form, and former Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen kept a clean sheet away at Tottenham Hotspur.

Fantasy league leader for the third week running is Danny Pakinkis, with Chris Mann, Andrew Chadwick and Brian Lee filling in the rest of the Champions League spots on 446, 428, 416 and 413 points respectively.

Bottom of the league currently has 213 points, in 151st place. We'll not mention his name for fear of hurting his feelings, but Danny Speakman that is a truly woeful effort. Pull your finger out man!
