I made a number of predictions at the end of last week in my gameweek preview about how I thought the weekend’s results might pan out. 

I apologise. They were all wrong.

Robbie Keane actually may be worth adding to your squad. He scored twice this week. Both belters. He got goal of the week. McLeish wants to tie him down for longer. And he’s only worth 5 million.  

There wasn’t a goalfest at Norwich. Norwich kept their first clean sheet of the season. And they didn’t score. Neither did Chelsea. Gary Cahill didn’t play. David Luiz did, and didn’t do anything daft. If you picked Gary Cahill, I’m sorry for suggesting you should. You should have picked David Luiz. Don’t do that now, becuase Cahill will probably play next week.

Liverpool didn’t keep a clean sheet against Bolton. Johnson, Skrtel, Agger and Reina managed a point each, not the six I predicted they’d get. Enrique got himself booked and so didn’t pick up any points. I made Enrique captain. Worth it.

Steven Fletcher didn’t score. He got his appearance points and nothing more. Demba Ba may be back sooner than you think. Senegal lost their first ACON game to Zambia. Probably best to just keep hold of him.

Elsewhere, Clint Dempsey was top scorer for the week. He bagged a hat trick in what seemed like five minutes against Newcastle. I swear he only touched the ball three times. He’s a very reliable and consistent fantasy performer – but expect his value to soar in the next few days. And it was thanks to Dempsey’s obliteration of the Newcastle back line that Shoelace Untied picked up 60 points and won the Manager of the Week award.

The January Manager of the Month award will be decided next week. I’m probably going to win it. It’s about time really.

  • Player of the week – Clint Dempsey. Lethal.
  • Bargain of the week – Bobby Zamora. At 6.6 million, a bargarin striker. Maybe this is your Ba replacement.
  • Donkey of the week – Karl Henry. Aptly sent off for kicking out… a donkey. Eee-aw!

Goal o’t weekend

A week full of contenders. Bale, Guthrie, Rodallega, Buzsaky, Gardner all hit wondergoals…..but Robbie Keane wins.

You what?
