Lots of fair to middling scores around this week in the Buckets League. Maybe slightly surprising in a week in which we saw a 6-1, a 4-0, a 2-2, a 3-1 and a 3-0. Many of the goals and assists came from unexpected sources. We had some good scores from new signings, debut-makers and slow starters. Even Gervinho managed two. That’s him halfway to last season’s goals total – and a quarter of the way to his points total.

Our players of the week couldn’t have been more unexpected. Alexander Buttner made his debut for United, scored a goal, assisted, kept a clean sheet and got top bonus marks. He was also booked. He was a penalty scored and one more card away from a full house. I have no idea if this has ever happened. Another fullback picks up the bargain award. Matthew Lowton scored a scorching volley for Villa in their 2-0 win over Swansea. It justifies Lambert’s approach of picking up good British youth from the lower divisions. Their first win and clean sheet, and probably a long overdue hint of optimism at Villa Park.  

Other new signings impressing this week were Dimitar Berbatov getting his first Fulham goals, Steven Fletcher getting his third Sunderland goal in two games, Javi Garcia getting off the mark for City and Julio Cesar looking impressive in goal for QPR. Robert Green didn’t last long did he?Jussi Jaaskelainen is top of the goalkeeping charts. He only kept two clean sheets all of last season – he has three already.

We have two Buckets teams reaching 62 points this week – our highest score. The award for team of the week goes to Bermie United, by virtue of scoring more bonus marks – 10, to Release The Hounds’ 9. RTH opted for Berbatov as captain – a good choice – that’s 26 points in the bag already. Carlos Tevez, Aaron Ramsey and, for the first time this season, Gareth Bale, notched the all important extra bonus marks for Bermie, to help them win the weekly award.

  • Player of the week. Alexander Buttner – 17 points. The end for Evra?
  • Bargain of the week. Matthew Lowton – 14 points. Great goal.
  • Donkey of the week. Nathaniel Clyne – -3 points. Shipped six goals – one of them an own goal.

Goal of the weekend

A sweet free kick. Podolski v Southampton.
