Mladen Petric is cheaper [6.3m] and selected by more teams [12%] so that’s why we’ve gone with Fulham new man Dimitar Berbatov [6.9m] as this week’s Funny Feeling Friday selection.
Berbatov is owned by only 2% of Fantasy Premier League managers – an appallingly low percentage for a former Premier League Golden Boot winner who comes in as a bargain priced asset in a Fulham side who are usually difficult to beat at Craven Cottage.
West Brom are certainly in form, but I think Berbatov grabs a goal or assist in the first start for his club to reward those 2% of fantasy managers who have taken the plunge.
There you have it. Pretty straightforward. Berbatov. A cheap sub-7m option at home. Class. Trickery. A Bulgarian’ widow’s peak. Your Funny Feeling Friday.
