LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 37

Congratulations to Mark Finney, whose Aston Villarreal (2,218 points) lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after the penultimate gameweek, number 37. But it’s close at the top – fewer than 20 points separate the top three, with Mark Widdop and Edward Douglas having made up ground. Sunday marks the final day of the season. Who will emerge triumphant? We’ll know by the end of the day…

LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 30

There’s no change at the top as we enter the final quarter of the season, with Edward Douglas’s Use Your Ed and Mark Finney’s Aston Villarreal continuing to lead the pack, both having topped 1,700 points. But still fewer than 50 points separate the top 10 so it’s anyone’s league.

(To be clear, by the way, my name is highlighted below only because it’s a screengrab from my laptop. I’m not in any way trying to draw attention to the fact I’m in the top 5. Perish the thought…)

LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 29

Congratulations to Edward Douglas, whose Use Your Ed (1,650 points) lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after Week 29, just ahead of the two Marks, Finney (1,636) and Widdop (1,625).

Oh, and as it may not happen again, ever, I’m going to lead a round of applause for the 10th placed team this week. That’s, erm, me, just sneaking on to the leaders’ board.
