Fantasy Football Finale
And the winner is…
With a total of 76 points from Gameweek 14, Joseph Knight’s The Knight-Hood successfully won the WNOL fantasy football.
The Knight-Hood’s talisman and captain was Manchester City striker Sergio Agüero, who gained 32 points due to his two goals and assist for Stevan Jovetić against Sunderland. Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez scored a late winner against high-flying Southampton to bring in nine points, whilst fellow Gunner Callum Chambers gained eight due to their clean sheet.
Knight’s team was also top after Gameweek 13 gaining 47 points, once again featuring Agüero as captain who received 12 points on the weekend.
The worthy competitor
The Knight-Hood finished 18 above Josh Wright’s Champ, who gave a good fight in the final week, gaining 69 points, unsurprisingly having Agüero as his captain.
Champ profited from Eden Hazard’s goal against Spurs, which gained him nine points, along with Arsenal’s Sanchez who received the same amount.
Josh’s team proved to be one of the front-runners along with The Knight-Hood from the early stages, but when Gameweek 12 finished there was only five points between leader Joe Aldridge’s Ivory Toast and fourth-placed Champ (with Daniel Oyetunji’s Oyetunji Boys and The Knight-Hood taking second and third place, respectively.)
The biggest loser
At the other end of the table Sunveer Sandhu’s TheCelineDioners sunk quicker than Titanic and ended up being rock bottom of the WNOL fantasy football ocean.
Despite not being last in any of the previous weeks, Sunveer’s team only managed 36 points, 22 less than Alice Mason’s WIMBLEDON who were bottom for most of the season, thus ending up in ninth place.
Final words from the Champion
“I am very pleased my team won the WNOL fantasy football league; though I had very little doubt I would ultimately succeed in the end. It was the final two weeks where The Knight-Hood proved they were Championship-winning material.
The Wildcard selection was an important moment for my team, as I was able to pick some of the best players in the league, especially my captain Sergio Agüero who gained me 50 points in the final three weeks.
I have to give credit to my competitors, particularly Josh Wright and his Champ team, who fought right until the end against me.
But there’s only one winner… And that’s The Knight-Hood.
