A disastrous week for Neil Madrid. They fell completely out of contention for the October manager of the month award and relinquished their lead at the top, scoring a comparatively low 54 points compared to the majority of their pace-setting rivals who finished the weekend posting scores in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
Most notably, Uriah’s, who jumped from 5th to 1st with 94 points – a score that wins them the October manager of the month award.

And The Craggy Islanders, who are the top scoring team of the week with 95 points – which is also the highest weekly score of the season so far.
Roughly one in forty of all the managers in the game dispensed of Sergio Aguero in the last fortnight. That suggests at least one of us did too. Most leading Buckets managers held on to him it seems, although not many were prepared to offer him the captain’s armband. Uriah’s did, and it was this decision that boosted their score more than any other. Add to that an almost complete set of clean sheets, two assists and two goals out of the midfield and another double figure score courtesy of Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku was the key to the Islanders’ success, collecting 24 points as captain, backed up by Aguero’s 16 point haul. Tom Heaton, who is established as the number one keeper in the game, Alexis Sanchez and the in-form number 10, Joe Allen, added double figure amounts.
Player of the week – Ilkay Gundogan – 18 points. One to watch – a regular starter now?
Bargain of the week – James McArthur – 15 points. Palace’s best performer by a mile.
Donkey of the week – Craig Dawson – -1 points. The pricier of those defenders on the receiving end of a four goal defeat.
Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero (his second goal). He’s finished.
