The last week of September was won by NaboombuDirtyYellows with 62 points. Despite being the only team to get over 60 points for the week, this wasn’t enough to catch Uriah’s and claim the September manager of the month award. Uriah’s took the lead in the first week of September and have gradually improved it week on week. They’re 20 points clear at the top, and won the monthly award with room to spare…

The big news of the week was Wayne Rooney’s sending off. Although he did manage to bag a goal before his dismissal, softening the blow for those that had him in their team. He now serves a three match suspension, will not play during the whole of October, and leaves a juicy hole to fill in some manager’s attacking line ups. If anything it might be a blessing in disguise as the new look United still struggle to find any kind of consistency. They were lucky to escape the weekend with a win.

Another player likely to miss October is Aaron Ramsey, who limped off during the Arsenal draw with Spurs. Rooney and Ramsey’s enforced breaks leave a potential £20 million pound gap in some fantasy teams. That’s a gap that shouldn’t necessarily be filled with straight swaps (Mata for Rooney – Cazorla for Ramsey perhaps?). It’s £20 million pounds you don’t really need given the continued good form of lower priced players in the game.

Saido Berahino was the latest forward in the £5-6 million bracket eclipsing the performances of those more expensive, bigger name players. His two goals for West Brom against Burnley have placed him fourth in the striker standings. Just behind Graziano Pelle, whose value is rising by the day. Up to £7.8 million now from his £7.5 starting price, and understandably so with goals of the quality of the one he scored against QPR at the weekend. The biggest conundrum for managers at the moment should be figuring out exactly which Southampton players to have in their team. It’s arguably Uriah’s Southampton contingent that have propelled them to the top of the league.

Elsewhere, Mile Jedinak’s second goal in as many games has moved him into view, as has Craig Dawson’s goal and second successive clean sheet for West Brom. It was West Brom’s third win on the spin. The aforementioned Berahino – and Graham Dorrans sharing the big points between them. Dorrans is our player of the week this week. Nacer Chadli, at £6.2 million, is Spurs’ best performer at present, and the joint leading midfielder.

So many options leaves the door open for some interesting moves in the Buckets table next gameweek.

 

Player of the week – Graham Dorrans – 16 points. August – Swansea. September – Southampton. October – West Brom?

Bargain of the week – Craig Dawson – 14 points. No longer to be considered defensive whipping boys?

Donkey of the week – Eliaquim Mangala – -2 points. Where to start…own goal, penalty conceded, booked. Probably left the gas on before leaving the house that morning.

Goal of the week – One of these two.
