We’ve two teams posting scores of 90 points this week – that’s The Mindless Morons and Romeo’s-Honda-Van. And the winners of the manager of the week award are… The Mindless Morons. They scored six goals to Romeo’s five. Had Romeo’s won the award, it would have been their third in four weeks and their fourth overall. As it happens, the Morons pick up their first. You have a to feel a little sorry for them, having scored 90 points you’d expect to move a few places up the table. But no – they stay in 23rd place – in the bottom four, but close the gap on the teams just above them. Maybe if Luis Suarez was to stop scoring goals, it would become a lot harder for ALMOST EVERYONE to post scores of 70, 80 or 90+ every week. Suarez’s current scoring streak far surpasses those of Gareth Bale and Robin Van Persie’s from recent years. He has just posted his fourth consecutive double figure weekly score. It’s his eighth in all for the season. And it’s his fifth player of the week award. His price is currently set at 13.2 million, and there’s a real chance he could become the most expensive player in the game within the next few weeks. It’d be nice if he could have a week off, just so I could talk about someone else.

Romeo’s may have only just missed out on the weekly award, but they move into second place overall, and the gap between them and first placed Sporting is now down to 13 points. Ciderheads, Panza Grande and Rip Roaring Reds are all within 30 points of the top, with five other teams all passing the 1000 point mark. Defending champs, Shakin’ Stephens, lie in 11th place, almost 100 points behind Sporting. They’re going to need a run of results similar to that of Romeo’s to put themselves in with a chance of retaining their title. Sporting run the risk of losing their grip on the lead this week if they don’t replace Aguero, who still forms part of their attack. In a week where some rotation is very likely, Sporting’s bench doesn’t look very strong either. None of their four subs got any game time in gameweek 17, and if this happens again in gameweek 18 and/or 19 they could be swallowed up by that chasing pack.

Player of the week – Luis Suarez – 16 points. Unbelievably, still not in everyone’s team.

Bargain of the week – Peter Crouch – 12 points. On the day his missus won Strictly.

Donkey of the week – Danny Gabbidon – -1 point. An own goal contribution to a 3-0 home defeat.

Goal of the week – Seamus Coleman. Was tempted to nominate Vincent Kompany’s overhead backward slice own goal. But I didn’t. No video for this either for some reason.
