Celebs powering their way towards the finish line following victory over Republic

Legoland Footballing Celebs have gone 5 points clear at the top of the Legoland Football League following a hard fought win over Republic. The 1-0 victory by the Celebs was celebrated by the club’s owner Mr Prints as a major step towards landing the Serie A title. There are now only five league rounds remaining this season with a total of 15 points up for grabs. Speaking after the match, Mr Prints, the admirable businessman who also owns The Legoland Times, said “with Juventus and LFC both slipping up today, we can put the champagne on ice”.

Few would argue with Mr Prints as indeed the closest challengers to the Celebs both suffered major setbacks. Second placed Juventus were destroyed 5-0 by a rampant Lion Lakers at the Stadio Delle Alpi, with former Juve player Filippo Inzaghi bagging a hat-trick. The Lakers victory saw them move into UEFA Cup qualifying territory taking the place of Sampdoria who were held to a scoreless draw by Roma. Third place Legoland FC meanwhile were also held to a scoreless draw in their clash with Port Villa. The LFC coach Claudio Ranieri now faces the possible sack following another dropping of points. LFC, the reigning champions, are now 6 points behind the Celebs and come face to face with Juventus in next week’s Imperial Derby.

LFC’s arch rivals Legoland United drop a place to sixth position after a shock 2-1 defeat to relegation threatened Robin Rangers. The Reds have now picked up just five points in their last 8 league games, a disastrous run that has seen the club’s title challenge all but fade away.

At the other end of the table, bottom side Robin Ravers recorded a superb 4-2 win over Foggia to give themselves a lifeline in their desperate bid for survival. Fellow strugglers AC Milan were less fortunate losing 2-1 in their meeting with Parma whilst second from bottom Empoli managed to secure a 2-2 draw with manager-less Inter Police. Emperor Eagles 1-0 defeat by Ravenna sees them drop into the relegation zone while nouveau riche Lazio’s defeat to Greentown also sees them lie perilously close to the drop.
