The Fantasist played it fast and loose with the noon
Saturday deadline to sneak in a couple of last-minute transfers at the weekend.
Confirmation of the West Ham v Manchester United teams came
at about five to, giving The Fantasist just enough time to bring in Fabio and
Antonio Valencia, bringing its United quotient up to four.
Although the reshuffle meant the last-minute removal of
David Silva (a goalscorer for City on Sunday), the cheaper Valencia matched
Silva's 11.5-point haul. Fabio, meanwhile, scored a disappointing three.
Thank goodness for Wayne Rooney, who rewarded those who
snapped him up at 16.14 with a hat-trick - he is now the most expensive player
in the game, but faces two weeks out thanks to those swears.
The quartet of Arsenal players were a collective flop as
they drew a blank against Blackburn - worst of all, Cesc Fabregas was consigned
to the bench having been 'passed fit' by Arsene Wenger. There will be a few takers for his ludicrously
cheap 12.19 price tag.
At least Manuel Almunia did well, keeping a clean sheet
despite his own best efforts.
Moussa Dembele failed to get in on the act for Fulham
against Blackpool, while Charlie Adam got booked - as usual - but did little
else at Craven Cottage.
