Fantasy Island - Week 3 Fantasy Football Liveblog
By Mark Farrelly Updated

[liveblog] 3:16 It's 15mins in and Michu hasn't scored yet. What's going on?

3:20 Only goal so far in the 3:00pm kick-offs has been a Shaun Maloney penalty, after a Robert Huth handball for Stoke.

Of course he'd have to go and dirty Ryan Shawcross' sheets.

3:25 After my mid-morning panic, I went with Gareth Bale in the end. Spurs have pretty poor so far against Nowrich though.





















3:30 Shane Long after smacking the crossbar for West Brom. Closely followed by Paul Merson nearly having a heart attack on Soccer Saturday when Fellaini almost scored.

3:32 West Ham beat a hapless Fulham 3-0 in the early kick-off. Fantasy wise Andy Carroll showed a lot a of potential. All three goals came from the havoc he was causing around the box.



















3:38 Jeff Stelling just described a Ben Pringle goal for Rotherham Utd. as 'a crisp finish.' Oh dear.

3:39 Penalty for Stoke. Handball by Figeroa. Walters to take it.

3:41 Goals! Goals everywhere! Well, two goals. Walters slots away the penalty for Stoke to make it 1-1.

Meanwhile Steven Fletcher has scored for Sunderland to put them 1-0 against Swansea.

3:44 Robert Snodgrass goes close to putting Norwich 1-0 up against Spurs. £5.9m on FPL, well worth a look.

3:45 Goal for Swansea!

Wayne Routledge grabs the equaliser.

Assist for Nathan Dyer. He's an assist machine.

3:50 After half an hour of boredom, the goals have flown in over the last fifteen minutes.

3:51 Another Goal! Fletcher again on his debut for Sunderland. 2-1 up now against Swansea.

He's £7m on FPL. Worth a look?

3:55 Just remembered that I have Swansea backed in a treble...

Half-time Goals and Assists

Wigan 1-1 Stoke City (Goals: Maloney, Walters) (Assists: McArthur, Crouch)

Tottenham 0-0 Norwich

West Brom 0-0 Everton

Full-time: West Ham 3-0 Fulham (Goals: Reid, Taylor, Nolan) (Assists: Collins, Taylor Vaz Te)

4:03 Dembele on for Sandro, for Spurs. Will he turn into a fantasy stud now at Tottenham? Was usually the assist to the man at Fulham.


4:08 Goal for Wigan! 2-1 up now. Franco Di Santo scores. Assist for My Little Kone.

4:15 You won't believe this -  Stephen Reid has gone off injured. Yes, yet again. This time it's his hamstring.

4:20 Adaboyer on for Sigurdsson. Lot of fantasy football implications. Anyone have Adaboyer captain? Heard murmurings of some people who had.

4:25 Goal! For Shane Long!

4:26 Goal! It's that man Dembele! Ever the bridesmaid for Dempsey at Fulham, he has scored on his début for Spurs.

4:28 Goal! For Swansea. Guess who it was....Michu!

God they're flying in everywhere. First of all, time for an assist round-up:

Odemwingie got the assist for West Brom.

Defoe got it for Spurs.

And Jonathan De Guzman crossed for Michu to finish for Swansea.

4:32 Michu is immense:






4:34 Goal! For Stoke City. Crouch heads in from a Jonny Walters cross.

4:36  Chico sent off for Swansea!

Sees red for a high tackle on Louis Saha. Don't folks, the main thing is Louis is OK.

4:38 Meanwhile Richie Baker has scored for Barrow against Kidderminster.

4:39 Tom Huddlestone on for Jermaine Defoe [tumbleweed rolls by]

4:41 Goal! West Brom go 2-0 up.


We told ye so!

4:43 Sorry, slightly lost the run of myself there. Back to the West Brom goal.

Scored by McAuley, assist for Chris Brunt.

God knows who God the goal for Snodgrass, it's all about him really.

For what it's worth it was Ricky Martin I think. He's having a much better day than his fellow popstar Chico.

4:47 Tom Huddlestone sent off. Got a red for a two footed tackle, but the guys on Soccer Saturday say it was never a sending off.

4:49 Oh dear God. Just realised I've actually put Snodgrass on the bench this week. As per usual my Saturday night will be spent crying in the bath.









4:51 Has finished 2-2 between Wigan and Stoke City.

4:52 Full-time with Spurs and Norwich as well. Finished 1-1.

4:57 Full-time in the other two games now.

QPR: Green, Bosingwa, Nelsen, Ferdinand, Fabio, Wright-Phillips, Granero, Faurlin, Park, Zamora, Johnson.

5:02 Mancini is going on my list of enemies. Second week in a row Clichy doesn't play. He'll plummet in value this week I'd say. Offload, offload!
