Rip Roaring Reds win the gameweek with 70 points, and are in pole position to win the May Manager of the Month. Yet, it’s a short month – just two weeks – anyone could win this months prize – even Erectile FullFunction.

OK – probably not Erectile Fullfunction.

If the Reds do win the prize, it’ll be their second monthly prize. To add to their Buckets Cup win. Although it probably won’t be enough to put them back in contention for fourth.

This weekend’s results haven’t made too much difference to the Buckets placings. The race for second and third is going down to the wire. Romeo’s and NOTA have been neck and neck for weeks now, and it all comes down to the last gameweek to split them. Panza could climb above them with a good gameweek, although I think they’re in their own two-way race for fourth with Crazylegs. Overpaid Pillocks have an outside chance of usurping them both, but need an inspired captain choice, and maybe a hat trick from Taye Taiwo to do it.

It’s fitting that the two players of the week effectively decided two of the major Premier League issues this week. Antolin Alcaraz’s goal and clean sheet for Wigan  guaranteed them Premier League safety, and sent Blackburn down. It’s Bolton or QPR for the last relegation place. Yaya Toure downed Newcastle with two clinical strikes. This puts one sky blue mitt on the Premier League trophy. If QPR retain their top division status, they could also hand the trophy back to United. QPR go to City on the last day. Toure’s goals may also have ended Newcastle’s Champions League dream, although Spurs and Arsenal’s shaky form still gives them a sniff.

  • Player of the week – Yaya Toure. Title winning performance.
  • Bargain of the week – Antolin Alcaraz. Relegation saving performance.
  • Donkey of the week – Danny Rose. Might mean Gareth Bale plays left back for the last game of the season.

Goal o’t gameweek

Go to 43 seconds in for the Phil Bardsley strike
