Lion of Vienna Fantasy League Update

Chris has a toot at the latest weekend in the Prem and what it means for amateur Mourinho sorts everywhere

The best manager in the Premier League? Possibly

As Bolton Wanderers enjoyed a majestic away win in France against Bournemouth, so the Premier League wheel continued to turn apace.

Sadly, Manchester United won - the Moyes magic appears to be wearing off which is most disappointing. Then again, they were up against Fulham, the most pointless football team ever. Special mention goes to Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic who, presumably sick of how shite Kenwyne Jones is, scored against Southampton with a long punt up-field with wind assistance (hot air supplied by Mark Hughes no doubt).

Manchester City humped Norwich by seven, and we finally got the old Liverpool back as they were lucky to only lost by two against Arsenal - who opened up a five point lead at the top. It'll be interesting to see how they get on against top sides but they've made a decent fist of it so far.

We have a new leader in the Lion of Vienna Fantasy League, Brian Lee of 'King Banter 2' (presumably self-appointed) has overtaken long-term leader Danny Pakinkis who drops to fourth place. Brian scored a fantastic 92pts this week, with Danny suffering with a mere 46pts.

Gareth Entwistle and Jamie Nutter complete the top four in second and third respectively, whilst I maintain my own sensational form with a 72pt game week and a rise to 69th place.

Team of the Week

Asmir Begovic (Stoke) 9ts

Steven Caulker (Cardiff) 15pts, Gareth McAuley (WBA) 15pts, Mateja Nastasic (Manchester City) 14pts, Liam Rosenior (Hull) 9pts, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa (Newcastle) 9pts

Santiago Cazorla (Arsenal) 11pts, Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) 11pts

Sergio Aguero (Man City) 18pts, Robin Van Persie (Man Utd) 12pts, Wayne Rooney (Man Utd) 12pts
