    Thanks Rosie. Lots of jostling at this part of the season. I think you’re right about Pukki. I’ve had to get him. Secrets don’t last long in this game but the horse has probably bolted. He’ll stop scoring now.

    BB, you are already a legend of Villa Mad, and fast becoming a VMFL legend if you keep those kind of Captain choices up! :Star:

    The Pukki bandwagon keeps on rolling. I may have jumped aboard.

    Thanks Rosie! You are a !!

    Going to give the armband to Super John McGinn this week Winnie, with so many players picking the same captain you have to think "outside the box".

    Week 3

    8 captains on view this week with Sterling top choice with 8 votes.


    1. Salah 30 points - Only Picasso had the sense to stand by Salah after his poor performance last week and was duly rewarded with a 30 point haul. 👏👏👏👏👏

    2. Aguero 26 points - Dazzy and Nuc.

    3. Jimenez 18 points - Iwuz

    4. Sterling 16 points - Bongo, David, Winnie, Will, Jesh, Rosie, HJ and Yubby.

    5. McGinn 12 points - BB and Liam

    6.Firmino /Kane 4 points - Sam, Uncle Tony and Harry.

    8. Rashford zero points - Oz and Gornal.




    MANAGER OF THE WEEK 🏆


    Plain sailing for Iwuz and the Crimson Tide as they secure the award with 89 stupendous points thanks to Captain Jimenez and his late penalty. 💥

    Runner up Dazzy and Dazzy’s Barmy Army with 86 points.💥

    Well played guys. 👏👏👏👏👏



    TOP 6 💥


    👉1. Sausage United

    👉2. Billesley Villans

    👍3. Dazzy’s Barmy Army

    👍4. The Crimson Tide

    👎5. Winnie’s Warriors

    👎6. McGinn & Tonic


    Thought the King might lose his crown 👑 this week but no Bongo fights back to reclaim top spot after temporarily losing it to BB after Saturday’s fixtures. Only 5 points separate their teams.

    Dazzy up to 3rd and Iwuz up to 4th.

    Winnie spiralling down to 5th likewise David down to 6th.

    We say au revoir to Uncle Tony and Will who are now residing at 9th and 10th respectively.


    David’s Uncle Picasso 😜 up to to his favourite 7th position. After having a mini wobble regarding a possible Pukki error Salah’s magnificent 30 points soon extinguished any such thoughts. 😝


    RELEGATION 😱


    👎17. Injury Prone Xl

    👉18. Ozstan Villa

    👉19. Claret & Blue Army


    Yubby back in the danger zone.

    Oz and Gornal both affected by their captain Rashford’s missed penalty.



    MARE OF THE WEEK 🐴


    Quite a skirmish this week between Yubby, Gornal, Rosie and Jesh. However Oz and Ozstan Villa scoop their 2nd award with 40 torturous points mainly due to culprit Rashford and his penalty miss. 🤬



    4 Wildcards played.

    Rosie - Disaster 😱 👎

    Oz - Disaster 😱 👎

    Sam - Probably Sam would have been hoping for better 👎

    HJ - Ecstatic 👍




    After Gameweek 4 Fantasy League takes a 2 week break returning on 14th September.

    Cheers Rosie and well done iwuz. Dazzy had a lucky week as well.
    Don't feel too down rosie your 2.8 million in the world out of 6.5 million players. Iwuz and Dazzy have just shown that one or two good weeks and you rocket up the league and rankings.
    It's also a strange season. The top 5 in our league is,

    Bongo 3,917 in the world.
    BB 8,002 in the world.
    Dazzy 36,742 in the world
    Iwuz 38,711 in the world
    Winnie 60,245 in the world

    Those scores are beating all of the gurus on the fantasy football scout, etc
    I was watching one the other day. The man in the know. Can't remember what he's YouTube channel is. Anyway he's 2.3 million in the world.
    You can go from hero to zero very quickly.

    Cheers Rosie, I'm playing the long game! It's going to be a long time until I win a Gameweek I think. Not too impressed with my newly wild carded team tbh. And it looks like Martial could be injured now. I was expecting more from Firmino as he got a hatrick last time Liverpool played arsenal. That never seems to be true tho does it!! Still, at least I still have my triple captain chip. Just need to work out when Kane is likely to get a - 1 game score like he did for me last season

    Thanks again for another fun read, Rosie!

    Well done to Iwuz - I was so busy keeping an eye out for what Mr Snazzy Owen was up to with his team, I failed to notice you racing right past us!

    Wow, that must be the best VM start to the season, Bongo? I'm usually ranked around 2-3 million at this time of year. Or 4 or 5.

    Sam, despite you playing your wild card, with my changes to my team too, we still share 8 out of our first 11 players! Groan!

    I must admit, I was worried when I saw you had purchased and captained Firmino given his Arsenal hat-trick. Could have been riding high on that one! It's weird, the weeks, when on paper, my team looks like it should have a good week, I end up having a nightmare, and when I am fully expecting a low number of points, my team does really well! The footballing gods work in mysterious ways. I think a lot will be frustrated about Martial's injury given how many of us bought him this week! At least you are not Oz this week. I heard one of his team mention something about him brandishing a hair drier in the dressing room. Giggles.

    Yes, that's certainly the brave way to get ahead with so many of us having such similar teams, BB. I'm a bit too wimpy and scared about dropping right back down if my usual boring Sterling/Salah captain choice bags a hat trick, so perhaps overly cautious. I would, however, have been delighted if your captain choice this week had won a hat trick - I wouldn't have challenged the ref once!

    Yes, pretty good Oz!

    No-one tell him he's looking at the table upside down again.

    Week 4

    Easy week for working out the captains with only 4 on view. Sterling top managers choice with 9 wasted votes.


    1. Aguero 32 points - Dazzy, Iwuz, Nuc and HJ.

    2. DeBruyne 26 points - Picasso and Uncle Tony.

    3. Salah 12 points - Harry, Jesh, Liam and Gornal.

    4. Sterling 6 lousy points 😩 - Bongo, Winnie, David, Will, Sam, Rosie, BB, Yubby and Oz.




    MANAGER OF THE WEEK

    HJ and Aston Lilla scoop the award with 93💥 phenomenal points so very nearly equaling Bongo’s highest score to date.
    Uncle Tony with Swordfish runners up with 85 points.

    Great play guys. 👏👏👏👏👏 It’s what some of us can only dream of. 🤪



    TOP 6💥

    👉1. Sausage United

    👍2. The Crimson Tide

    👉3. Dazzy’s Barmy Army

    👍4. Jack of the Net

    👎5. Billesley Villans

    👍6. Swordfish


    Bongo still leading the way with an 11 point advantage over Iwuz who is now leading the chasing pack in 2nd place.

    Dazzy cemented in 3rd place.

    Picasso’s masterplan is obviously working as he joins the elite teams in 4th place.

    BB crashes and burns down to 5th after a disastrous week for the Villans.

    Uncle Tony showing his class as he claims 6th place.


    We bid adieu to Winnie and David who are now residing in 8th and 10th respectively.



    RELEGATION 😱

    👍17. Claret & Blue Army

    👎18. Injury Prone Xl

    👎19. Ozstan Villa


    A score of 76 points sees Gornal up to 17th.

    Yubby down to 18th.

    Oz hits rock bottom.

    Jesh and Rosie flirting with relegation, having the same number of points as Gornal and only staying above him by virtue of less transfers.😳


    MARE OF THE WEEK 🐴

    Oz and Ozstan Villa nightmare season continues, with 39 sad points Oz collects his 3rd Mare of the season.



    CHIPS PLAYED

    Free Hit - HJ played a blinder scooping 93 points.

    Wildcard - Jesh joins the wildcard disaster brigade with a miserable 41 points. 😳👎


    Fantasy League back Saturday 14th September

    Thanks Rosie! I would like to be able to say it was an enjoyable read this week. Really I would! I kind of read it peering between the gaps in my splayed fingers, with one eye open! Sam, it looks like I'll be sitting next to you again sooner than expected!

    Sterling in big trouble this week with quite a few of us!

    Big congrats to HJ and Uncle Tony and all Aguero captainers!

    There seems to be a bad case of the curse of the wild card going on this season!

    Commiserations to Oz - I think he may have got a bad dose of captainitis which plagued Yubby a few seasons ago. You are still the reigning champ though!

    Keeping fingers and toes crossed for an injury free international break!
