Crystal Palace and Everton defenders were the way to go this double gameweek. Not, as was hoped by many, Romelu Lukaku. The Everton forward was made captain by more teams than anyone else, only to return a measly eight points. Not that that stopped Buckets teams posting some pretty impressive scores. As well as taking a punt on the right defensive double gameweekers, it helped not to be too hasty in ditching Leicester and Spurs players.

That was a tactic that almost backfired for FC Caligula, who played their second wildcard, and in doing so saw fit to transfer out Jamie Vardy (13 points), Toby Alderweireld (15 points), Dele Alli (7 points) and Harry Kane (2 points). As well as Mesut Ozil (7 points), Ashley Williams (6 points) and Lukasz Fabianski (6 points). After the weekend’s games they had lost their lead in the league and were trailing The Craggy Islanders in the Buckets Cup final.

Luckily for Caligula, The Craggy Islanders had the same idea and went all out for the cup win, bringing in five Palace or Everton players, and losing Vardy, Mahrez, Kane, Lloris and Dier. In our lowest scoring, yet most closely competed cup final, Caligula just came out on top by virtue of scoring more bonus points than the Islanders. The final score was 55-55. Both scored two goals. Caligula managed six bonus points to the Islanders three. It was Joel Robles, the Everton keeper, who courtesy of his clean sheet and maximum bonus score against Palace, clinched it for Caligula, and kept the dream alive of a league and cup double.

Your Ad Here haven’t played their wildcard yet. They weren’t tempted into any double gameweek movements at all. And they scored 87 points. The only double gameweeker present was Scott Dann who has been a mainstay in their defence since October. Vardy, Kane, Alli, Alderweireld, Mahrez and Huth all remained. They reduced the 37 point gap between themselves and Caligula to just five. On Sunday evening they’d overtaken their rivals.

It’s unlucky on Caligula in a way. The idea behind ditching the Spurs and Leicester players, who don’t take part in any double gameweek action, and bringing in players to compete in this and next week’s bumper fixture lists, is probably the right one. Who’d have guessed that Jamie Vardy would rediscover his form, and Spurs would thump Manchester United? Great intuition by YAH though – and the title race is back on.

Also closing the gap and moving up into third are Rocky Ba Bauer. Their 90 point score was the joint highest of the week. Sweet Cherry Pie also managed 90 but lost out on the manager of the week accolade by scoring less goals – four to Rocky’s five. Rocky’s second wildcard was played back in January so they had little choice but to hang on to their Leicester and Spurs players. They played two free transfers last week in preparation for this, bringing in Joel Ward and Ross Barkley, who amassed a combined total of 23 points to add to the Vardy, Alli, Alderweireld, Mahrez, Schmeichel and Kane contributions.

 

Player of the week – Wayne Hennessey – 18 points. Two clean sheets and managed four bonus points too.

Bargain of the week – Jose Holebas – 10 points. 0.2% ownership worldwide – none of them Buckets.

Donkey of the week – Matteo Darmian – -1 points. With dishonourable mention for Lukaku.

Goal of the week – Andros Townsend. Every cloud.
