LibDemVoice Fantasy Football League: manager of the season!

Embed from Getty Images

Our final update from the LDV Fantasy Football League. Congratulations to Alan Worthington, whose Iheanacho Cheese won this year’s competition.

He amassed 2,277 points, which saw him take not only the top-spot, but also a top 25,000 position — not bad for a competition with almost six million players.

Alan just edge out his near-namesake, Alain Desmier — last year’s champion — whose Gander Green Giants finished on 2,271 points. Ciarán McGonagle’s Spartak Fantastak (2,263) came third.

Well done to all. A belated well done, too, to Benjamin Moody, manager of the month for April.

Thanks to all our 200+ players. See you again next season…

Here’s the final top 10 league table:

    When Alex Ferguson explained why Man U had paid as much as £14 million for Cristiano Ronaldo he said that “he has two feet”. This is presumably the football equivalent of being ambidextrous, able to shoot at goal with either foot, or avoid a defender by dodging to either side. This is presumably a natural ability.
    Tennis grand slam champion Rafa Nadal is now left handed, as is obvious from the greater amount of muscle on his left arm. Reportedly his uncle Tony encouraged him to develop his left arm from an early age so as to increase his reach to an extent that a two-handed backhand would not achieve. Maybe more footballers should train to develop this skill.

    Numerous fantasies became reality in the Spain – Portugal game in the 2018 World Cup.
    Having watched the game, I recorded the repeat overnight. At the end of the game Ronaldo’s free kick was a demonstration of skill if you are Portuguese. Diego Costa had been substituted by Spain’s substitute manager and was caught on camera wearing an expression of great sadness, but not anger. Watching the third replay of the free kick it isclear that the defender on the edge of the wall ducked his head to avoid getting the ball in his face. So what is the wall for? why did he agree to go in the wall? Is he any good at heading footballs? The commentary was silent. Unlike some other sports football rules do not allow Diego Costa to come on again and try for a hat trick in the remaining 4 minutes. At this stage of the competition there are no penalty shoot-outs to decide the game.

    Surely the least Donald Trump could have done is to arrange a wildcard entry for North Korea to the 2018 world cup, because a joint entry with South Korea would take too much negotiation.
    Ideally South Korea would relax their requirement for military service at the age of 28.

    Fantasy numbers are possible. Just look at the scorecard.
    Australia won the toss and elected to field.
    England 481 for 6 in 50 overs, a record. Bairstow 139. Hales 147, man of the match.
    Australia 239 all out in 37 overs. Head 51, Stoinis 44.
    England have won 3 consecutive matches, best of 5, a whitewash is still possible.
    Highlights on Channel 5 overnight. The stumps light up when our lads hit them.

    United Man “Call me Ole” has been given a 3 year contract by Man United whose previous manager left them sixth. They are now fifth, one point above Chelsea.
    Man U were reportedly willing to pay a transfer fee for Pochettino (£xx,xxx.00)
    Real Madrid have chosen Zinédine Zidane. So what should Cardiff do? Ask for a loan of Welshman Gareth Bale for the rest of the season.

    Late, over budget, the second largest club stadium in England (the cricket stadium at Old Trafford is being used for cricket) smaller than Wembley, but on all the back pages.
    Home win.
    Son is the Daddy!
