Paris Spinks Germain pip Shoelace Untied to this week’s best manager accolade. It could have been a satisfying double win for Shoelace who picked up the October monthly award, but all three of PSG’s outfield subs came in to play to amass 62 points to Shoelace’s 61. Still, Shoelace will be pleased with their progress through October. They’ve risen from 25th to 15th over the course of the month, and get a place on our monthly roll of honour for the first time.

Shoelace’s emergence from the bottom five into mid table has been helped by one of their elite players finally finding their feet. Alexis Sanchez has contributed 29 points in the last two weeks. That’s a total that’s propelled him to second in the midfielder standings. In the previous three weeks he’d only managed three points. Sanchez’s ownership has fallen dramatically since pre-season, but now we see those that stuck by the Chilean forward reaping the rewards. His 16 point haul this week bags him the player of the week award.

The major headache ahead of the week’s fixtures concerned whether Diego Costa would or wouldn’t play. There were conflicting reports in the run up to kick off. My suggestion that the only thing to do was to upgrade to Sergio Aguero proved to be advice best ignored. Sorry about that. If you made the switch you’d have gained, at best, four points. Although there’s still an orange box next to Costa’s name, so I’m clinging on to the hope that there’ll be some long term gain in making the switch.


Player of the week – Alexis Sanchez – 16 points. The form player.

Bargain of the week – Samuel Eto’o – 13 points. This week’s Burnley basher.

Donkey of the week – Branislav Ivanovic – -1 points. Unlucky to be sent off.

Goal of the week – David Silva. Probably doesn’t do this as often as he should. Starts at 1m04s.
