Fixture Freeze

The weather has played havoc with this week’s Premier League fixtures, and left fantasy football managers scrambling to put out a full side.

At the time of writing there are only four Premiership games still going ahead after the Wigan v Aston Villa clash was called off this morning.

This leaves Ruining Football with a grand total of six players available for the gameweek, including new signing Carlos Tevez who has come in for Didier Drogba who is at the African Cup of Nations.

The Argentine has just picked up the league’s Player of the Month award and has been in sparkling form as of late.

Joe Hart’s Birmingham City take on Patrice Evra’s Manchester United at St. Andrews and a 0-0 draw would do very nicely.

Arsenal host Everton at home and hopefully Abou Diaby and Armand Traore can contribute a bit more than they did in the double gameweek, but Cesc Fabregas is still sidelined through injury.

Jody Craddock completes the half dozen players who could still be in action as his Wolves side travel to Upton Park to face West Ham.

The poor conditions badly affected the last gameweek when Arsenal and Bolton had their second game postponed, though we still managed to finish up on 60 points.

The decision to give the captaincy to Thomas Sorensen backfired spectacularly as he scored a grand total of four points, missing Stoke’s second game of the week in the process.

All three strikers contributed heavily though with Bent (2), Drogba and Torres all finding the back of the net in their respective fixtures.

Clint Dempsey again shone in midfield, picking up a goal, an assist, and three binus points from his two games.

The team currently sits in 22,456th place out of a total of 2,225,331 teams.
