Lots and lots to get through. Neil Madrid win the last weekly award with 74 points. It’s a total that pushed them up into 6th place and only 8 points of the 4th place spot. Panza Grande put in a good last week with 70 points. That wasn’t quite enough either – just 6 points short of 4th place. Both leapfrogged Les Canaris who dropped to 7th after a poor week, falling victim to City’s poor showing against, ironically, The Canaries. So the top 4 was as it was last week.

So congratulations to (Your Ad Here) who stumbled a little coming into the final few weeks of the season, after a blistering February and March, but were able to hold on to 4th place. Hedgehogs Corpse had a poor week, only managing 38 points, but the 33 point lead they had over Pescara was enough to make sure they hung onto 2nd place. Pescara closed that gap to 7 points with a Comfortable 60 point score. But the twice champs will have to be content with 3rd. They had Romelu Lukaku on the bench. Lukaku’s score of 16 points would have been enough to place them above Hedgehogs, and in 2nd. The ridiculous 5-5 between West Brom and United probably did for a number of managers. I daresay there were others who didn’t expect United to concede 5 to West Brom. Personally, I think that was a fix. What was the only Premier League record Fergie didn’t have – highest scoring draw. Well he does now. In his last game. Well done Fergie. Cheat. Check for dubious betting someone.

And congratulations to our winners – A Pint Of Fuller’s. They went to the top of the league in Gameweek 20. They held on to that lead for all but 3 of the next 18 gameweeks, and are our runaway champions.

The last manager of the month prize goes to Goodbutnosigurdsson. They made only 1 transfer this week – an enforced one – replacing Benteke with Berebatov. A good choice, as Berbatov chipped in with a goal. Fancy a Brouhaha? almost caught them. A different choice of captain may have grabbed them the prize. Instead GBNS win their second manager of the month award. So congratulations to them.

There were 36 goals this week, so plenty of points to be had. The 2 games that had something riding on them only gave us 1 goal each. The usual Gareth Bale – in from the right and on to his left 20 yarder – and for Arsenal, a 3 yard swivel from Laurent Koscielny. Good defensive points were available if you went all out North London – particularly Koscielny, who also bagged three bonus points. The reason that not too many managers scores went through the roof was down to the majority of the goals, assists and bonuses coming from largely unexpected sources. Kevin Nolan top scored. Nolan started the season well – his value rising to 6.9 from 6 million. He’s back at 6.1 due to an on/off 2013. Also contributing to various goal fests were Jack Rodwell, who appears in 0.4% of teams across the game, Alex Kacaniklic, James Morrison, Youssouff Mulumbu, Grant Holt and Ron Vlaar. Vlaar is the unexpected recipient of the last goal of the week prize aswell.

And that is that. I’ll be in touch with the various prize winners regarding dollar distribution. Check the Prize Money link for to see who won what. The Roll of Honour link has a full list of managers of the week, managers of the month, players, bargains, donkeys and goals of the week. The Cup and League roll of honour has been updated here too.

  • Player of the week – Kevin Nolan – 19 points. Hat trick and double figures for the season
  • Bargain of the week – Jack Rodwell – 15 points. The first and last time his name will ever appear here.
  • Donkey of the week – Jonas Olsson – -2 points. Scored one of United’s 5. Probably got paid for it.

Goal of the week

Vlaar Villa.
