Typical that I should be away during the week in which there were such massive shifts in position in the league table. To summarise, Neil Madrid and Hedgehog Corpse, 2nd and 5th last week, plummet to mid table, and are now closer to the bottom team than the top. Upper Bullens and Ciderheads both managed 76 points, but Bullens win the weekly award having scored five goals to Ciderheads’ two. Bullens have raced to the top of the league, and are in pole position for the September prize. Rip Roaring Reds lie in second in both the overall and September leagues. Sportingoffensivewig are somehow in 3rd, their highest ever position. All this with only six active outfield players this week. Jammy get. Lerighton Baines is now the highest scoring player with two sumptuous free kicks against West Ham. Neither free kick were as good as Wayne Rooney’s consolation against City. And no free kick bettered Sone Aluko’s winner against a complacent Newcastle.

Next week we’ll find out the September Manager of the Month. The form guide suggests one of the top three will snatch it, but given last week’s massive swing of points, anything’s possible. Here are the fixtures…

28 Sep 12:45 Tottenham v Chelsea
28 Sep 15:00 Aston Villa v Man City
28 Sep 15:00 Fulham v Cardiff City
28 Sep 15:00 Hull City v West Ham
28 Sep 15:00 Man Utd v West Brom
28 Sep 15:00 Southampton v Crystal Palace
28 Sep 17:30 Swansea v Arsenal
29 Sep 13:30 Stoke City v Norwich
29 Sep 16:00 Sunderland v Liverpool
30 Sep 20:00 Everton v Newcastle

Not much of a preview that, but I’m on holiday. Make do.

Player of the week – Leighton Baines – 16 points. Two gorgeous free kicks.

Bargain of the week – Robbie Brady – 12 points. Hull’s creative force.

Donkey of the week – David De Gea – 0 points. Didn’t even muster any saves of note.

Goal of the week – Sone Aluko. Side foot volleys look nice, even against your own team.
