There was 1 Monday Night game and seven 5th Round F.A.Cup Ties which involved Premier League Teams which produced for the Alfaz Fantasy Football League 17 goals(lowest so far this Season,7 clean sheets,15 yellow cards(another record low for the Season) and 1 red card which was Millwall’s Cooper.
As expected the Premier League Managers made a load of changes for the Cup Ties,Leicester’s Ranieri being the biggest culprit making 10.In the end he got what he deserved by getting knocked out by a powerful looking Millwall side.
The 2 leaders of the A.F.F.L.both had a poor week with Andrew’s Big Tymers only picking up 8 points while his nearest rival Wayne’s team Gunnawinitthisyear scored a low 5 points.However it gave the chasing pack a chance to catch up to the front runners as 3rd placed Chris’s Always Hoping and Dave’s Juke Box Mackems are both within striking distance of the Summit.There is only 21 points separating the top 4 so we are heading for an exciting finish to the 23rd A.F.F.L. The same can’t be said at the other end of the table where Kevin’s El Portet Elite are getting ready for the big drop as they are now 138 points behind Angie’s Blues.
Ant & Brad looked at one time to be running away with our U.K.T.V.SPAIN Junior League when they had a 58 point advantage at the top but now their lead as been cut to only 13 points by Callum’s F.C.Barcalona.At the bottom it’s the same story as the main League where Anna’s Radji United are well adrift of Charlotte’s Arm Wavers United the distance being 48 points.
There is a big tussle going on at the top of our Mark Carter Ladies Section.Currently Joanna’s Hup Hannah City have the upper hand with a slight 3 point lead over Julie’s team The Gers then comes Jenny’s Mackemville and Pam’s People in 3rd & 4th place.Down at the foot of the table Angie’s Blues had a good week with Manchester City having 2 games going into the mix but they are still trailing Glenda’s Spanish Smoggies by 21 points.Kim’s Ginger United are racing away with quest for our 20 euro voucher sponsored by QUICK SAVE,the only British Supermarket in Albir with 1 week to go they lead Amanda’s team Bogs Dollocks by substantial 29 points.
There is only one League that looks done & dusted at the top & the bottom and that is our Leonard Knowles Construction Golden Boot League. Dave’s Juke Box Mackems have a 80 point advantage over Lee’s Walkden Town at the top while at the other end Kevin’s El.Portet don’t even look like scoring with a strike force of Grabben,Spurs Janssen and Ighalo who has moved out the Premier League for pastures a new.
We have 2 teams going into our Monthly Wyndham’s Wine Draw and they are out top scoring team Paul’s Elite Kitchens,Swinton who bagged 54 points courtesy of Spur’s Harry Kane(16) & Manchester City’s John Stones(12) who between them scored 28 of them and our lowest scoring team which was Clive’s Gonna Do It A.F.C. who managed a minus 1 score.December’s Lucky Winner was Karen’s Florida Pearls.

Elite Kitchen’s,Swinton have won this week’s Breakfast for 2 sponsored by Pete & Jo at the Two C’s in Alfaz after leaping up 44 places to No 64 in the League.
At the time of doing this report I have not had time to collate all the points for our X-Pats F.A.Cup League but I’m sure by the time you read this all the points will be up on our website which is now getting back to normal.The draw for The X-Pats Quarter Finals K.O.Cup Competition is also on the website with the favourites Julie’s team The Gers taking on one of their fellow Lady Managers teams Jenny’s Mackemville.The lowest placed teams in the League left in the Cup are Peter’s side The Irons(241) who will play Len’s team Victory(244) in what should be a close encounter.The ties will take place the Weekend 11th & 12th March any replays will take place the following week.
