thumbnail Hello,

Hearty congratulations go to user 'stever21' from Cyprus, who wins a fantastic BlackBerry for gaining the most points in another week of Goal.com's Fantasy League action. Remember, there are plenty more prizes to be won...

The main thing to remember about Goal.com's Fantasy League Manager is that prizes are awarded for each round of play, and not just at the end. After all, this week's prize-winners had rankings of at least 200 - sometimes up to 4000 - prior to picking up a great win. So, sign up now and see if you can emulate stever21's feat!

Steve's team has won him a fantastic BlackBerry prize after he topped the charts on the second leg of the first knockout round, leading his squad, 'stever21', to glory.

It seems as though the would-be manager from Cyprus made some shrewd decisions: having Samuel Eto'o as captain earned him 22 points thanks to the Cameroonian's performance against Bayern Munich, while Branislav Ivanovic was also an inspired choice. These two gave him a huge portion of his total: Martin Skrtel and Franck Ribery, for example, offered little.

Here was his team in a 3-4-3 formation, which finished two points clear of the nearest competitor this week:

And here is the top nine for this week. As well as Sandy's BlackBerry, other prize winners will pick up a jersey for their favourite club (3x) or a cap (5x). (Those with equal weekly points are differentiated by overall ranking.)

Curiously, this was a very low scoring week, with a points average for the top ten around 20 per cent lower than that of the last round. What's more, 'stever21' was a dark horse winner: his previous ranking was 271 overall, and now 103. The overall top ten are not involved in this week's prizes at all - a sure-fire sign that anyone can win prizes in the Goal.com Manager game!
