Maybe, for the benefit of RayCrawfordsCrackers, I should introduce a prize for most manager of the week prizes in a season. They hold the record with seven – a total they reached last season on their way to the title. They broke their previous record of six from the season before. So far this season they’ve managed the best weekly score on five occasions – including this week. Could they make it to eight? Quite conceivably. Although they’re obviously tinkering a bit too much again, as they’re languishing somewhat in mid table, with an outside chance of scraping their way up to the top four.

They drafted in Santi Cazorla and cleverly made him captain – and he scored the bulk of their 89 points. Cazorla’s weekly score of 17 points was only bettered by Jonathan Walters. The Arsenal midfielder is the form player in the league. That’s his second consecutive double figure score and his fourth in eight weeks. This has been helped by his promotion to penalty taking duties in the absence of Mikel Arteta. He scored his fourth in eight gameweeks yesterday against Villa.

In fact, Arsenal are the form team. Key to a big score this week was to shift the onus from Chelsea and City to Arsenal. As well as RCCs, Pretty Schitty City and Neil Madrid took the punt on Cazorla. City’s 74 points, which also included a six point contribution from Per Mertesacker, was enough to hold off a late surge from Neil Madrid to win them the January manager of the month award.

5 Shoelace Untied Caroline Strong 78 252
6 Bermie Utd Glen Davies 55 250

 

Despite not quite grabbing the January award, their 88 points has put Neil Madrid within two points of top spot. They and NaboombuDirtyYellows have opened up almost a 40 point lead over third placed Upper Bullens.

 

Player of the week – Jonathan Walters – 19 points. A hat trick and up to seven goals for the season. One to watch?

Bargain of the week – Patrick Van Aanholt – 12 points. Only £4.2 million and clearly a first choice. Another one to watch?

Donkey of the week – Ryan Bertrand – -1 points. A suspension headache.

Goal of the week – Hector Bellerin. A peach of a pass into the bottom corner. At 4m25s
