Tinkering on a massive scale paid dividends for Neil Madrid this week, who, with a 91 points, are the highest scoring team. Although the 16 points tinkered away on transfers mean that they haven’t gained much ground on the teams above, and the chances of a 4th place finish are slipping away. That last Buckets Champions League place may also be out of the reach of Uriah Rennie’s 2nd XI, meaning there are just 5 temas left in it for the 4 cash prizes.

Neil Madrid employed 10 of their starting 11 from teams playing twice, although Fergie’s tinkering meant Rafael only played the one game for Manchester United. Robin Van Persie scraped 2 more goals onto his total – one offside and the other a penalty – but it was enough to gain 32 of the 91 points as captain. The majority of points came courtesy of Arsenal and Everton. Good wins for both clubs in their weekend games, and a 0-0 draw in their midweek contest, resulting in plenty of clean sheet points, saw the 6 players from both of those teams in Neil Madrid’s line-up pick up a total of 44 points.

Unusually the highest scoring player of the week came from a team that didn’t play twice. John Terry managed 21 points thanks to 2 goals, top bonus and a clean sheet in Chelsea’s defeat of Fulham. Could that performance win him his first team place back? The inclusion of Chelsea players is something Buckets managers need to start thinking about for the next double gameweek – gameweek 37. The fixture list will finally balance itself out in that penultimate  week. City, Wigan, West Brom, Swansea and Tottenham are the others lined up for double game action. And that could be the week that decides the title.

  • Player of the week – John Terry – 21 points. The joint 4th highest individual weekly score of the season
  • Bargain of the week – Alex McCarthy – 11 points. One of the best goalkeeping displays of the season, picking up 4 additional points for saves made
  • Donkey of the week – Philippe Senderos – 2 points. Tricky to pick this week. But Senderos played 2 90 minute games, conceded 4 and picked up a booking.


Goal of the week

Thanks to David Luiz, I didn’t have to pick a Sunderland player
