After last weeks slow start the Alfaz Fantasy Football League took off with the Premier League going goal mad, by producing 45 goals,only 3 clean sheets,22 yellow cards and 3 red ones for the Fantasy League Managers which took the average score for the week to a to a high of just over 30 points. The 3 Players sent off were West Brom’s Gibbs,Brighton’s Bissouma and Chelsea’s Christensen, the last 2 had yellow cards turned into red after the Referee viewed the pitch side monitor having been advised to by VAR.
They may not be any fans at Premier League games so far this Season, but there has been no shortage of goals with no fewer than 62 goals being netted in the 16 games played so far and at the time of writing this we haven’t even had last season’s top scorers Manchester City and Aston Villa who have yet to play.
Our Lady Fantasy League Managers have wasted no time to get going with Jackie’s Winchester United taking over the top spot of A.F.F.L. from Simon’s team My Canary has Gone. Currently they have a single point advantage over last Season’s Junior Champions Harley’s Ginger Ninja. Hazel’s team El.Sid F.C. are in 4th place and Catherine’s Pompey Hammers are well in contention in 7th spot. At the opposite end of the table, most of the teams down there are suffering from the fact that Manchester City have yet to start their campaign. Ian’s Kasbrane City are being hit the hardest with only 2 points in the bag, leaving his team 1 point away from Liz’ Leia’s Yum Yums.
Jackie’s Winchester United are also top of our Mark Carter Ladies Section by holding a slight 5 point lead over Hazel’s El.Sid F.C.Jackie’s team has this weeks top Fantasy league Player Spurs Son in her line up who bagged 22 points this week after scoring 4 goals against Southampton, Even if you don’t like Spurs, it’s hard not to have a soft spot the smiling Son Heuing min. Down at the foot of the table, Liz’s Leia’s Yum Yums are still struggling and have now slipped further behind Blue Ceri,the gap now 12 points.
Harley’s team Ginger Ninja are beginning to open up a substantial gap at the top of our Junior League, at the moment they are 14 points ahead of Clara’s Babies. The Two Boden brothers are fighting it out for the bottom spot. Bailey’s Bez Boys are only 2 points away from his brother’s Harrison’s team Boden Boys.
With so many goals being scored our Golden Boot League is overflowing with points. Jackie’s Winchester United have taken over the Summit from Simon’s My Canarys Gone who dropped down to 3rd and have taken a 5 point lead over Clara’s Babies.Top Player in this Section is Spurs Son and surprisingly only 9 Managers selected the likable South Korean International. Last week we had 47 teams joint bottom so I’m pleased to report this week we only have 5 teams joint bottom on zero and they are Heimir’s Reykjovic, Kasbrane City,Woodside,One For the Road and Leia’s Yum Yums. Four of those teams have Manchester City Fans as Managers.
The Top scoring team this week was Simon’s I Want My Ball Back who plundered 65 points courtesy of his top scorers Son (22), Kane(18) and Danny Ings(12) who scored 52 of their points. The lowest scoring team was Ian’s Kasbrane City who scored a solitary 1 point, thanks to Leed’s Tyler Roberts. Both teams will go into our Monthly Wine Draw next Month.
