Fantasy Football Gameweek Review / Fantasy Football Sunday Review

Sunday Review – Gameweek 12

Manchester City 6-0 Tottenham

imagesManchester City might have their troubles when on the road, however when they play at the Etihad, they certainly turn it on. The Spurs defence has been very tight of late and so no one would have predicted the massacre that was to occur. After only 14 seconds City had their first as Jesus Navas started the rot and it was all downhill from then on for Spurs. Alvaro Negredo got involved in the action as he got City’s second and then Sergio Aguero got the goal he deserved to make it 3 after converting a pass from Navas. A neat interchange between Negredo and Yaya Toure allowed the powerful Ivorian to power his way through the Spurs defence and his pass across goal gave Aguero his second of the game and justified all fantasy managers that captained the prolific striker. Negredo then showed his class again as he made a fool of Michael Dawson. A clever ball through the middle of the park from Fernandinho was directed at Negredo who collected and spun past Dawson and cooly finished past Lloris. There was still time for another as the man who started everything then finished it off. A long pass from James Milner was misjudged by Jan Vertonghen which then allowed Navas through on goal and he neatly nestled the ball in the back of the net as Spurs suffered a humiliating defeat. To be fair, not many would have been able to handle Navas, Aguero and company but the Spurs defence was also very poor.

Bonus Points: Navas (3); Aguero (2); Negredo (1)

Cardiff 2-2 Manchester United

rooney-kickOn the face of it this was a fantastic opportunity for United to carry on from their victory over the league leaders Arsenal last time out, but in the end this would seem more like a victory for Cardiff and 2 more points dropped for United. Wayne Rooney carried on with his impressive form after he opened the scoring for United with Javier Hernandez providing the assist. This may well have left Cardiff fans with a sour taste in their mouth though as Rooney was a touch lucky that he wasn’t already back in the dressing room for an early shower. After kicking Jordon Mutch off the ball, he was fortunate to escape with only a yellow card. It was Mutch who provided the assist for Fraizer Campbell to equalise for Cardiff but just short of half-time a Rooney cross was headed in superbly by Patrice Evra to give United a vital lead at half time. The drama was not to end there though as Cardiff carried on fighting valiantly and were rewarded deep into injury time. A free kick from Pete Whittingham was turned in by Kim Bo-Kyung to send the Cardiff fans crazy and bring despair to David Moyes’s side.

Bonus Points: Rooney (3); Evra (2); Whittingham (2) Campbell (2)

    It’s been my best Gameweek of the season so far, with 81 points and Baker still to play. I have now moved into the top 100,000. How did it go for you guys? I also wanted to ask, since we have most of the same people in the regulars league and the FF247 league, should I leave the regulars league? And what’s the code for the H2H league starting next GW?

      nice score.

      This is turning out to be a shocker for me. 50 pts with only Baker to play.
      A total of 11 points from my 5 man midfield (Barkley subbed in when RVP couldn’t make it).
      RVP was missing in action, I have been strong and kept him all year and this is how i’m rewarded – against cardif!
      will be outside top 100k now.

      Was a good week for me, with Sessegnon still to play and a -4 hit to take. I brought in Mertasacker for Vertonghen which turns out was a 13 point difference between the two! I’ve moved into the top 5000, highest I’ve ever been. Getting a bit nervous since I won’t be able to focus probably the next 3 or so GWs – I’ll be in the US!
