Anyone who picked up Aguero, Gary Cahill or Klasnic has to be pretty happy this morning. The guy who is first place overall (worldwide) had Aguero as his team captain this week (double points). Our league's points leader, 'arry accountants, stands a very respectable 51,548th out of 2,022,907 in the world (top 3% overall). Hot on his heals are the Surreal Madrid Fish, who have a busy competitive schedule what with being entered in 14 other Classic and Head-to-head leagues. Our top ten are only separated by 9 points, so clearly it is going to be a very competitive season in our 106 team league. My team (OttSpurs) managed to sneak into the top 30, so I can't complain about their efforts thus far.
As usual in the EPL the injury bug is starting to bite right off the bat. This week I lost Etherington to injury (who I thought was going to be a pretty astute signing). It will be great to be able to deploy our Spurs players next week. I had to sit Corluka on the bench for my squad this week. With an extra week's rest I am certain he will be one of my top performers and he pounds in a brace during Spurs 4-0 victory at Old Trafford ;)
Thanks to the league organizer(s) for setting this up and letting us know about it. So far this has been a fun distraction that has added to my enjoyment of non-Spurs matches.
