Scores may have been low in Week 25 of the Bragging Rights Dream Team Fantasy League, but morale is certainly high in the Tea and Busquets camp. Manager Moffett’s canny move in rescuing Brazilian smiler Willian from a Jackson 5 tribute band paid dividends as the big-haired winger garnered an impressive 31 points to lead the weekly standings.

Although the weekly win was not enough for Moffett to improve upon his 8th place standing, he has closed the gap to 7th place Manager Moore-G to only 38 points – and he now lies only 60 points behind 5th place Manager Moore-T, who suffered another disappointing weekend on the imaginary sward with a miserable total of 23 points.

With a full 2 months of the fictitious season remaining, most of the main issues appear to be already settled. Moore-T’s efforts to three-peat are certainly yesterday’s news and his hopes of Champions League participation next season appears as doomed as West Brom with a massive 205-point gap separating 4th from 5th in the table. At the foot of the standings, debut manager Moore-J now languishes 82 points adrift of second from bottom Manager Winters-S and the long-suffering Banbridge Town F.C. fans are already pouring over the Groundhoppers’ Guide to the Fantasy Conference in preparation for next season.

Perhaps the only issue not completely resolved is the destination of the major award. Proper Football Man Manager-Craig continues to lead the way, both on the fantasy pitch and in the post-match catering; and he excelled himself this week with a “Canapé and Canopy” theme, which saw him serve assorted nibbles in a tent, all washed down with lashings of ginger hair.

Craig’s closest challenger remains former-leader Manager Shaw-Ryan, who despite an 89-point gap to the summit remains “quietly confident”. “I’m quietly confident, Jeff”, he told Sky Sports recently. “Craig has form for bottling it – as well as canning it, pickling it, smoking it and various other methods of food preservation – but I’m confident that his attention to detail in the kitchen will be his downfall on the pitch.” In full flow now, Shaw continued “He’s a poor substitute for tea-lady Doris in the boardroom and as about as useful as Doris in the dug-out. When the pressure’s on, he’ll crack… and I’ll tell you now… I will LUV IT if we beat them… LUV IT!!!” Shaw looked set to continue for quite some time, but medical staff intervened at that point and lead him to his “special chair” for “nap time”.
