Scores were much more tightly packed this week. Uriah’s narrowly picked up another manager of the week award with 63 points. It’s their second of the season, but after a lax few weeks it’s not going to be enough to put them in contention for the monthly award which will be decided next week. Pescara sit top of the monthly table off the back of their 119 point score of a fortnight ago, with RayCrawfordsCrackers and Van Damme United also in contention.

Hedgehog, NDYs and Neil Madrid complete a top six with realistic chances of nicking the prize – that’s all of the overall top five in with a chance.

No Buckets teams seem to suffer at the hands of the blank gameweek too much. Most teams managed to turn out at least ten players, and most scored above the weekly average of 33 points. Three other team managed 60+ scores – most tellingly, RCCs, who moved above NDYs into fourth place.

No player dominated the scoring this week. The highest individual score was eleven points, and this was achieved by seven different players. There were more points to be had towards the back of the starting XI than the front, which is a rarity. Five defences kept clean sheets, yet only five attackers scored more than their appearance points. This might explain why so many Buckets managers had similar scores. The majority of us did well in the circumstances to get into the high 40’s, 50’s and above.


Player of the week – Andy King – 11 points. Team of the week were arguably Leicester City.

Bargain of the week – Boaz Myhill – 8 points. Not easy to determine who should win this award this week. It’s Andy King’s fault.

Donkey of the week – Ashley Barnes – -2 points. Easily the cheapest set of weekly winners in the history of Buckets.

Goal of the week. Craig Gardner. Thank goodness there was one to pick. 44s in.
