Alfaz FFL Weekly News sponsored by BetFred.com

 

Arsenal romped home 4-0 in the F.A.Cup Final against Aston Villa to bring down the curtain on another fantastic Season of the Alfaz Fantasy Football League. Congratulations go out to our overall Champion Dennis whose Team The Potters won the 21st A.F.F.L. by a large margin of 61 points. Our other major Winners were Gary's Team Gary's Cockney Army who pipped Steph's Seymour Shooters by only 3 points to lift our F.A.Cup League Trophy. Pam's People won our K.O.Cup Competition beating Teigars Tigers in the Final while Keith West's Team Max & Paddy became only the 2nd Team to win our newly formed prestigious Lenny Knowles Construction Golden Boot League when his Team fought off the challenge from Super Rhys who went on to runaway with our U.K.T.V.SPAIN Junior League by a massive 71 points.

Sarah's Team The Dons pulled off a sensational performance when they managed to peg back a massive 62 point advantage held by Lesley's Team Law's Lads to win our Mark Carter Ladies Section.

It's great to see 6 different Teams winning all our top Competitions which goes to show everybody has a great chance of picking something at the end of the Season.

The highest score of the Season went to Big Sam's Army who bagged 87 points Week 17 while at the other end of the scale the lowest score went to Mick's Marvels who some how managed to score an incredible - 8 in the penultimate Week of the Season.

Wooden Spoons have gone out to Danny's Sarita F.C.(Main League),Calum's Rees-Red-Devils(Junior League),Dave's Casa Stretford Ender(Boot League),Gillian's Gil's Kippax(Ladies Section) and last but not least my Team City Slickers who finished bottom of our F.A.Cup League.

Top Performers in this Season's Fantasy League are as follows,in Goal no surprise there,Manchester United's soon to be gone David De Gea was Head & Shoulders above everybody else(Don't tell Joe Hart) with 210 points 2 more than Liverpool's Simon Mignolet.

Chelsea's John Terry & Branislav Ivanovic were streets ahead of all the other Defenders with Terry just edging out his Team Mate Ivanovic by 2 points.Southampton's Ryan Bertrand was the best bargain finishing joint 3rd with Arsenal's Mertesacker.

In Midfield Chelsea's Edin Hazard scored 12 more points than 2nd placed Arsenal's Cazorla when he had 14 goals & 23 key contributions from his 38 starting appearances.

Up front Manchester City's ace Marksman Sergio Aguero(203pts) held of the challenge of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez(186pts) to be crowned top Fantasy League Player while West Brom's Saido Berahino(184pts) and Spurs Harry Kane(171pts) both proved to be incredible value for Money. Unfortunately only 4 Fantasy Managers had the nous to select them.

Top Golden Boot Player was the Golden Boot Winner Sergio Aguero who finished up with 130 points 30 ahead of 3 Players Costa,Austin and Sanchez. Thanks once again for playing the 21st A.F.F.L. and we hope to be back in early July with a brand new Season so keep an eye on this Newspaper for all the details.

AFFL & BETFRED Winners Visit to CHELSEA v BURNLEY FEBRUARY 21st 2015-03-03

Elizabeth & John Crabtree, winners of the 2012/13 Alfaz Fantasy Football recount their outstanding week end , complements of BETFRED.COM .

An early start on Friday 20th February from Preston to Euston, and thanks to some excellent travel arrangements from Carl Gleave at BETFRED, two connecting over ground trains and a short walk through West Brompton gardens we arrived at Stamford Bridge.

After a ‘brief’ visit to Frankie’s Bar, listening to the Chelsea fans discussing the match prospects, we checked into the Millennium Hotel, where once again all the arrangements by Carl at BEDFRED made the checking-in procedure very easy.

On Friday afternoon and evening we went into central London, using the oyster card system operating in the capital, for some sightseeing and enjoying the hustle and bustle of the capital.
We woke early on Saturday – possibly in anticipation of the afternoon game, so we took advantage of the hotel location and had a walk along the Thames embankment. By the time we got back to Stamford Bridge we could feel the excitement building so we had a walk round the stadium, and some more photos before we got ready to go to the Chelsea hospitality suite.

We arrived at the Chelsea hospitality suite at 1230pm, minus any football colours, warmly welcomed by the suite manager who provided us with our menus and programmes. We had an excellent meal with suitable liquid refreshments served by our attentive waitress Nicki, until we went to our allocated seats in the West Stand, next to the ‘Shed End’ goal mouth end.
The atmosphere was superb with a capacity crowd, and the noisy Burnley away fans singing and chanting , the teams came onto the pitch, the Chelsea football song ‘Blue is the Colour’ was played all the way through, the ref blew the whistle and we were off. The seats were really superb, padded with heaters in the roof blowing warming air down onto the fans – luxury.
The first half was really exciting, Chelsea played well but Burnley had their moments as well.
Back to the hospitality suite for half-term refreshments, including that Turf Moor staple Benny ‘n’ Hot, which was being sampled by others in the hospitality suite.
We returned refreshed to our seats for an even more exciting half – never has a football match gone so quickly !
Heard from Chelsea fans ‘come on Chelsea its not Real Madrid its Burnley’. And what a result 1-1. The Chelsea fans sat near us shook our hands and said ‘well done’, they were a bit shell-shocked.
We were probably the only ones smiling when we returned back to our seats in the hospitality suite for the post-match drinks, still celebrating the result.

More sightseeing in London Sunday and Monday, including the London Eye and the West End. We left the capital Monday afternoon from Euston after having a great time.
We had a fabulous weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves so a BIG THANK YOU to Chelsea Hospitality, BEDFRED and Eric and Terry.

Elizabeth and John Crabtree

Good Luck to everyone this season.

The report of a great visit & match day for Anne & Mick O’Brien

An early start on Friday 17 April as we left Alicante to arrive at Manchester, thanks to some excellent travel arrangements from Carl Gleave at BetFred. Our stay was the Novetel, Worsley, where once again all the arrangements were made by Carl at BedFred.

The game we had gone to watch was Manchester City versus West Ham. We arrived at 11.30 at the Hospitality Suite, where we were warmly welcomed by the Suite Manager, who provided us with our menus and programmes. We had an excellent meal. We then went to our allocated seats. The atmosphere was superb, with a capacity crowd, and the noisy Manchester City fans singing and chanting. As the teams came onto the pitch, the Manchester football song “Blue Moon” was played. The first half was exciting as Man. City were on form.

Half time it was back to the Hospitality Suite for refreshments. We then returned to our seats for the 2nd half. Never has a football match gone so quickly, and what a result – 2-0. We were over the moon (Blue Moon!). Well done City.

We had a fabulous weekend with fantastic weather too, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so a big THANKYOU to BETFRED and A.F.F.L

Good luck to everyone this season

Anne and Mick O’Brien
