NaboombuDirtyYellows are the big movers of the gameweek, top scoring with 66 points, and climbing from 10th up to 6th. They’ve been steadily on the rise for the last couple of weeks, and have also hit the top in the race for the December Manager of the Month prize. Have a look…

NDY’s opted for Wayne Rooney as their captain this week. A calculated risk, as Suarez had his week off. The majority of Buckets managers stuck with Suarez, and the difference in scores is easy to see. All those who didn’t dare make the switch landed in and around the 30-40 point bracket. Kedah FA and Upper Bullens were two of the other three teams to score 50+. They went with Rooney and Hazard as captain. Suarez also got himself booked.

It was a week in which plenty of goals were scored, so there were points to be gained. Notably Theo Walcott and Lucas Podolski’s contribution to Arsenal’s victory at West Ham. Podolski made his first appearance since August as a second half substitute, and his 26 minutes on the pitch was enough time for him to score and assist Arsenal’s final two goals. Theo Walcott, himself recently back from a long term lay-off picked up 15 points, scoring two of the goals and getting full bonus marks. Here we have two players probably not in too many teams at the moment, but likely to transferred in on the back of these performances. Their returns have come at a good time for Arsenal with that nasty winter fixture pile up, a misfiring Olivier Giroud, and an injured Aaron Ramsey.

Player of the week – Jay Rodriguez – 16 points. Saints back to winning ways and his fifth in six games. Still only 6 million.

Bargain of the week – Scott Parker – 14 points. Great goal too.

Donkey of the week – Marc Wilson – -4 points. Off, then watched as his side conceded five.

Goal of the week – Dwight Gayle. Last minute. Top corner. Out the bottom three.
