The first round of the cup has been decided. The preliminary round was completed this weekend and bottom club, Inter Minan, who never get mentioned, because they gave up in August, have made it through. They defeated Uriah Rennie, whose season goes from bad to worse. Inter Minan achieved the victory with only eight men on the pitch. It’s unlikely they’ll get any further, as next week they’ll face the league leaders, and will probably have a lot less available players in their squad. A Demba Ba hat trick may get them through though. You never know.

Elsewhere, there were victories for Kedah FA, Ciderheads, Panza, Rip Roaring Reds, Sporting, Crazylegs, Pretty Schitty City, Shakin’ Stephens and Rien Toulouse, who, with 74 points, were this weeks highest scoring team. Sporting were the only other 70+ scoring team, knocking out The Magico in the tie of the round.

It was inevitable that Daniel Sturridge’s scoring run would eventually come to an end. As inevitable as it was that Luis Suarez’s non-scoring run would also come to an end. Both happened this weekend. Suarez’s 15 points was his highest score, and included his first league goal for six weeks. Unusually Sturridge didn’t contribute anything – not even an assist for the other two Liverpool goals. They were assisted by…Suarez. Andre Schurrle was the best player of the week – not that anyone would have foreseen the hat trick he scored to dispatch of Fulham and the 20 fantasy points he picked up. It was only Schurrle’s eighth league start of the season.

Player of the week – Andre Schurrle – 20 points. Don’t be surprised if he’s back on the bench next week.

Bargain of the week – Moussa Sissoko – 15 points. It wasn’t a headbutt.

Donkey of the week – Sebastien Bassong – -2 points. An own goal in the middle of a 20 minute capitulation.

Goal of the week – Christian Benteke. His first goal in the rout of Norwich.
