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.

LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 28

Congratulations to Edward Douglas, whose Use Your Ed lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after Week 28, just ahead of Mark Finney’s Aston Villarreal and Simon Stokes’ Back of the Net.

But let’s also hear it for three players outside the top 10: Guy Burton (Hackney Marsh 2nd XI) was Manager of the Month for February, closely followed by James Ludley (Ludley’s Line-up) and Ashley Wilkes (Le Saux Solid Crew).

LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 25

There’s no change at the top of the table, with Mark Widdop’s Midtable Obscurity (1,445 points) continuing to lead the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after Week 25, just ahead of Paul Revell’s Sock Monsters (1,435) and Edward Douglas’s Use Your Ed (1,424).

But let’s also hear it for a couple of players outside the top 10: James Ludley’s Ludley’s Line-up had the best week’s performance, with 94 points, with Andrew Wiseman’s Wiseman Wanderers not far behind on 87 points.

LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: how it stands after Week 19

Congratulations to erstwhile LDV day editor Mark Valladares, whose modestly titled Creeting Gentry FC (1,128 points) start 2016 in pole position in the LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League after Week 19. It’s a fiercely contested position, though — just 37 points separate the top 10.

But let’s also hear it for three players outside the top 10, who were the highest scoring managers in December: Michael Brown’s Mike’s Dream Team v5 (372), Benjamin Andrew’s Pleased to Beat-chu (363) and Steven Garrett Thirteen striders (362).
