Gameweek 1 results

August 17, 2011

Wow – how bad is the new site? It’s like the early days of the internet. Only then you marvelled at the slow, gradual, pixel by pixel reveal of a badly designed website. Maybe by the time the next gameweek starts, I’ll be able to update you on this one…….

And I can.

Firstly – some news. This week FPL are offering us unlimited free transfers up until the deadline for gameweek 2 on the 20th August. So you can all bring Aguero in, and get rid of Gervinho, Ferdinand, Vidic, Rafael and Kieron Dyer (?) and your QPR defenders at no cost. It’s the least they can do to make up for the site being down for the most crucial 24 hours of the season. I’m still not sure the site is working as it should, but at least we can log into it – which is much, much more than we were all able to do last Friday night and Saturday morning. As a result, two Buckets teams were unable to get their teams in on time. Both Pretty Schitty City and Shadwell Town are paying their entrance fee, and are happy to give us all a weeks head start. Good luck to them. I think, therefore, when I come to draw the cup competition, that both of these teams, regardless of their league position, will receive a bye into the second round. I think that’s only fair.

Anyway – at last – the gameweek update

Crazylegs XI have made an annoyingly good start to the new campaign. Last years champions have picked up 63 points to win gameweek 1, ahead of newcomers Magnificent Fifteen. Manchester City and Bolton were the teams to pick for the first week. They, and six other teams kept clean sheets, resulting in 32 defenders picking up 5 points or more. Only 7 attackers scored goals. Magnificent Fifteen started with a back five who scored 45 of their 62 points. Defences were on top. I don’t think anyone had Aguero. I’m sure the unlimited transfer opportunity this week will change that.

  • Player of the week. Sergio Aguero – 30 minutes. 2 goals. 1 assist. Carlos who?
  • Bargain of the week. Gary Cahill – Clean sheet and a goal. Possibly the first and last of his season. Unless he moves to Arsenal.
  • Donkey of the week. Clint Hill – A few contenders, but this dufus conceded four, then got his marching orders.

Goal o’t weekend
