Goal.com Manager: This Week's Winning Champions League Team Revealed!

Hearty congratulations go to user 'philadelphia' from Italy, 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!

Goal.com fan Roberto Galli, whose team is named 'philadelphia', has scooped the award for best Goal.com manager this week!

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, philadelphia, to glory.

The would-be manager from Italy largely saw points come from a solid midfield. Chelsea's Frank Lampard and captain Cesc Fabregas of Arsenal well and truly brought home the bacon, while Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra offered clean sheet bonuses for Manchester United.

Here was his team in a 3-5-2 formation, which finished level on points with the second place team this week on 71

And here is the top nine for this week. As well as Roger'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.)

In terms of the weekly pattern, after a low-scoring week in the first leg, things have picked back up, but only slightly. The biggest surprise is that this week's second-placed player is still ranked well in the 2000s, showing that anyone can win with the Goal.com Manager game! However, there was also a return to the weekly top ten for some previous incumbents, although the prize winners are all new.
