ALFAZ FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Last season’s Premier League was similar to the previous one, the difference being this season Manchester City romped away with it instead of Liverpool The games came thick and fast and at times it was difficult to keep up for the Alfaz Fantasy Football League. The fact that there were no fans there made a difference as there were more away wins than normal. Not only did the Premier League after put up with Pandemic they also had VAR to contend with who by the way had more assists than Harry Kane and Kevin De Bruyne put together.
Five Leicester City Players helped Dave’s team Milton Keynes F.C. win the 27th Alfaz Fantasy Football League by beating Clara’s Babes by the narrow margin of 3 points. The Babes had been top of the League for 17 weeks and in the end, they ran out of steam.
The other winners in the Fantasy League were Sky Blues (Ladies Section), Clara’s Babes (Junior League) Pompey Hammers (Golden Boot League), Rovers and Out (F.A, Cup League) and Non-Runners the K.O. Cup winners. The top Players in last seasons Fantasy League were in goal Manchester City’s brilliant distributer Ederson with 122 points which were 24 points than his nearest challenger Aston Villa’s top-class signing Martinez. The top defender was Chelsea’s Chilwell who collected 118 points then came Liverpool’s Arnold who finished up with 104 points.
Top Mid-Fielder is no surprise, with Liverpool’s hairy goal-machine Mo Salah with a haul of 218 points followed by Spurs smiling assassin Son who bagged 188 points for the season.
The top striker who is the number one striker is also the top Fantasy League Player of last season, Spurs Harry Kane who didn’t disappoint the 41 Fantasy Managers who selected him in their line-up with a tally of 232 points. The nearest striker to him was Leicester City’s fox in the box, Jamie Vardy with 184 points to his name.
The highest scorer in the Golden Boot League was Liverpool’s Mo Salah with 175 points leaving Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes trailing in his wake on 133 points. Although we had 2 keepers. Leed’s Meslier and Arsenal#s Leno on a minus 10 it was nice to see a keeper get amongst the scorers when Liverpool’s Alisson nodded in the winner against luckless West Brom.
Altogether the Premier League and the F.A.Cup Ties involving Premier sides gave last seasons Fantasy League 1120 goals, 248 clean sheets, 1216 yellow cards and 50 red ones.
Brighton was the biggest culprits when it comes to having players sent off with no fewer than 6 players going for the early bath, in fact their captain Lewis Dunk was dismissed twice in the season.
The Referees awarded a record number of penalties 131 was the total which is 31 more than last season. I’m not sure how many were given by the dreaded VAR but I do known that Leicester City were awarded the most with 12. Mike Dean dished out the most cards last season 91 yellow and 6 red while Mike Oliver, who suppost to be our top Referee( not in my opinion) awarded 18 penalties most of them for Manchester United.( just saying)
I must apologise for making a mistake last week when I said Alisson Wonderland had won the Manager of the Month when it should have C’Mon my Babies. (it’s been a long season).
Don’t forget the next season will soon be upon us after the Euro’s so it won’t be long before the 28th Alfaz Fantasy Football League gets going again so keep an eye on these pages for all the latest news.
