The last two teams to receive byes into the first round proper of the Buckets Cup have been decided. Mindless Morons with a week winning score of 89 points take their place in the draw, as do Neil Madrid as the second place team in the league. The second place team slot opened up by virtue of Romeo’s winning both gameweek 23 and 24, and being top of the league. It’s a fix.

There could be a surprise winner of the Buckets Cup. All the title chasing teams but for Neil Madrid have been posting around average scores in the last few weeks. Even Romeo’s overall league position has dropped in the last fortnight. The Morons complete a triumvirate of bottom ten teams who’ve managed a bye into the first round proper, joining Shoelace and Biscuitmen. Real Jorvik claimed manager of the week at the end of January and have scored another 80+ score this week. And Mid Season Blip have posted another 80+ score from their mid table position. It’s not all over if you’re out of the title race.

Neil Madrid, however, are the team to peg back at the moment. Two consecutive 85 point hauls have promoted them from 11th to second in two gameweeks, and they’ve won the February manager of the month award.

5 Shakin’ Stephens P Hawkins 53 231

 

The next two weeks could see a complete change around in fortunes. Only ten teams play twice, and only Chelsea, Spurs, Southampton and West Ham, of those ten teams, occupy top half positions in the league. Managers are going to have to take chances on some unfamiliar players. This week we could rely on the old faithfuls. The two Manchester teams kept clean sheets. As did Chelsea. Arsenal and Liverpool grabbed a hatful. Yaya Toure and Olivier Giroud found the net. John Terry combined a clean sheet, big bonus marks and a goal. Patrice Evra picked up his first double figure score of the season. These players were all utilised by the Morons. As was Luis Suarez, who is now chief assister to the Danny Sturridge goal machine. Its five weeks in six with only assist points for the Uruguayan, while his English strike partner scored his ninth in seven.

Player of the week – Olivier Giroud – 16 points. Back down to his starting price from a seaosn high of 9.6 million.

Bargain of the week – Liam Rosenior – 12 points. A 3.9 player with a clean sheet, and assist and 3 bonus marks.

Donkey of the week – Steven Caulker – 0 points. Looking doomed.

Goal of the week – Jonjo Shelvey. Sweet strike.
