What a difference a few weeks can make. Panza Grande cement their lead at the top of the table with another impressive weekly score. Tottenham’s resurgence under Tim Sherwood, and specifically Emmanuel Adebayor and Christian Eriksen’s rise to the top of the form tables, helped Panza to their 66 points. A score which was matched by our new second place team, The Magico. Eriksen and Adebayor feature again, along with Aguero, who was squeezed in with the use of the January wildcard. And despite having only 29 minutes on the pitch against Cardiff, Aguero still contributed a double figure score. It’s likely his starting XI place will be regained come next gameweek – at the expense of…well, going on this weeks performance, Alvaro Negredo, who will have disappointed a lot of managers with his single point performance. Which leaves Sporting in fourth, having also fallen behind Romeo’s. There’s much jostling in the positions behind. Arguably all the teams down as far as 12th place stand a chance of picking up a league prize.

Yet the weeks best team were Real Jorvik. For the second time in three weeks Jorvik post a 70+ score to win the weekly award, and move themselves into pole position in the race for the January manager of the month award. Adebayor as captain was a smart choice, and Yohan Cabaye’s third double figures score in eight weeks supplemented Jorvik’s winning total.

We’ve a weekend off for the FA Cup. The next gameweek is a midweek session next Tuesday and Wednesday. Our own cup starts soon. It’s in the first week of March, but be aware that the winners of gameweeks 23 through to 27 will receive a bye into the Buckets Cup first round proper. There’s a £30 prize for the cup this year. And it’s worth remembering that a high weekly score puts you in with a good chance of getting a monthly prize, as does a good cup run. Work your way to the cup final in March, and you’re bound to be close to the top of the March league table. There’s still plenty to play for in this years Buckets League.

Player of the week – Samuel Eto’o – 17 points. Torres out for a few weeks which could cement Eto’o in the squad for a while…

Bargain of the week – Ryan Bennett – 15 points. A clean sweep for the Norwich defender.

Donkey of the week – Nemanja Vidic – -2 points. Has the United defence ever looked so unappealing?

Goal of the week – Diego Lugano. A diving near post header. Makes a change.
