Fantasy Premier League: Week 4 Recap

We have now put four weeks of the 2013/14 Premier League (@premierleague) campaign into the rearview.

Arsenal (@Arsenal) are sitting one point outside of first place in the table.

The Gunners were treated to a stunning debut from marquee signing, Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088), who inspired the type of vintage Arsenal football we have begun to see less and less of over the past couple of seasons.

Which is not to say they played in top form throughout the full 90 minutes.

Sunderland (@SAFCofficial) began taking over the pace to open the second half and the referee made a poor choice in disallowing a Jozy Atildore (@JozyAltidore) equalizer at around the 70th minute.

Nevertheless, thanks to a brilliant opening touch from Giroud (@_OlivierGiroud_) and a brace from the ever-impressive Aaron Ramsey (@aaronramsey), AFC finished the match victoriously with a 1-3 result.

Truthfully, if Walcott were capable of hitting the broad side of a barn with any level of consistency, we likely would have finished with at least six goals.

Either way, great result, and looking forward the first Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) match of the group stage tomorrow versus Marseille (@OM_Officiel).

Fingers crossed that the knock on the knee Olivier took versus the Black Cats isn’t enough to keep him out!

We are doomed with Theo as the only option available at CF!

It was another solid fantasy week for me and I am quite pleased with the results.
I made some pretty substantial gains in both formats.

Happy to be sitting just outside of the top 50k in the official game and getting into the top 500 in Canada.

I am also just outside of the top 10k in the Yahoo! format, putting me in the 96th percentile overall.

It is a long season but I am hopeful that I can maintain the pace.

I have been rewarded handsomely for my faith in Giroud thus far.

And van Pursestrings (@Persie_Official) finally put some points up on the board for me.

Sadly, good ol’ Robbie Brady turned out not to be the big steal I had hoped he would be.

But watch out for the little paddy down the road!

To conclude, I would like to share this amazing picture that was sent our way courtesy of our good pal and fellow Gooner, @dave__whiteside:
