How a Dream Team gaffer who admits to being "generally pants" beat everyone else to claim Gameweek 4's cash prize | The Sun

IT'S important to remember that Dream Team guarantees more prize winners than ever before this season.

Naturally, the £50,000 jackpot for the overall winner of our beloved fantasy game is the seductive top prize but there's also a £1,000 each for the next 20 runners-up.

Not to mention £5,000 to be dished out among the Second Shot League's top five – which only takes into account the second half of the campaign – and fantastic weekly prizes via Score Predictor, such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox games consoles.

Additionally, we're giving out £100 to the gaffer who earns the most points each and every Gameweek!


At this early stage of the season, we've already rewarded four Dream Team enthusiasts for their tremendous efforts, such as Manchester United fan Michael Pullen.

"I knew I was top dog this week for my work league but never thought I was near top overall!" Gameweek 4's winner told us.

This success story should be an inspiration to all Dream Team bosses as Michael freely admits he's far from an elite player of the game.

"It feels unreal [to have won] as I'm generally pants. I'd have the occasional decent week but I don't think I've ever gone over 100 points before."

Michael's unexpected victory is proof that any Dream Team manager is capable of winning cash this season – all it takes is one round of fixtures to go their way.

Michael used his Park the Bus Booster to double the points of all his defenders in Gameweek 4 but it was his inspired forward trio that truly set him apart from the rest.

He combined a captained Erling Haaland (£8.1m) with surprise package Odsonne Edouard (£2.6m) and hat-trick hero Son Heung-min (£4.5m) for a return of eight goals and 81 points!

When revealing his method, Michael told us he tends to trust his gut rather than delve too deep into the numbers, a strategy that worked wonders for him last weekend.

"I don't like stats, I use them as a guide for team performance but not individuals, so all pure guts and luck.

"Gonna be a bit of bragging when I get back from my week off! £100 will most certainly go on a day out with the kids."

Michael was 19th in his Mini League prior to Gameweek 4 and now he's among the select group of gaffers to profit from Dream Team in 2023/24.

This is proof that managers should persevere even if they think they've had a slow start to the season.

In fact, even people who missed first few weeks entirely can register now and immediately put themselves in contention to win cash from as early as Gameweek 5.
