Winners – The Vinegar Pissers 

The third manager to pick up their second title scoring the second highest finishing total. The Vinegar Pissers only spent six weeks outside of our top 10, first taking root in GW5. They did drop to the depths of 11th and 12th, before permanently floating around 6th until gameweek 29, when a manager of the week performance saw them rise to third. Then GW31 – only four games – but a Mohamed Salah masterclass and everybody’s posting 100+ totals and challenging for the highest weekly score prize. The VP’s kicked arse with 124 points from eight players, 58 of which came from Salah. That put them at the top of the league and that’s where they stayed – and in truth, no-one really got that close to them. Congratulations to the Pissers. They got as high as 8,202nd in the world, never took more than a four point hit, played their triple captain and bench boost in the run in and utilised their free hit well, picking up a good score with it and a green arrow just before Christmas. Interestingly, they played their wildcards at almost the earliest possibly opportunity on both occasions. Proving that there is still no logic to this game and it’s all complete luck.

Runners up – Nashton Villa, Edgbaston and Despicable Mee 

Our Champions League qualifiers all had similar seasons, making their surge into the top ten and then the top four at around the same time. It was during March that they all lost ground on the VPs and were left desperately trying to claw back the points lost during gameweeks 29 and 31 – the two weeks that definitely won the VP’s that manager of the month, and arguably won them the league. It was a superb debut season for Nashton who reached their highest worldwide position after GW37, but were unable to continue the rise and challenge for the top spot. They would have had to surpass the 100 point mark in GW38 to knock our champions off their perch.

Edgbaston have finally crept into our top four after two consecutive 5th place finishes, despite finishing lower in the world rankings than in both of their last two attempts. And fourth placed Despicable Mee are regressing. Two consecutive runners up placings and now fourth place. Once always the bridesmaid – now a distant uncle only invited because they had a space to fill. In all seriousness – if one of these two doesn’t win this title soon, I’d be very surprised.

The rest

There were valiant efforts by two former champs who just ran out of steam at the last knockings – FC Caligula and The Craggy Islanders finished 5th and 6th respectively. We’re sure to see them in the running next season. Hornets, a total rookie FPL debutant, who were top every week bar three between gameweeks 2 and 29, finished in a respectable 7th. By gameweek 16 they had climbed to 1,663rd in the world, as high (possibly) as any Buckets manager has been, but they peaked too early. Better understanding of the chips and when to play them might serve them better next season. The rest of us – probably got stung by Harry Kane once too often, and only realised when it was too late that they should have had Mo Salah as captain EVERY WEEK.

The awards

We had more managers of the week scoring 100+ scores than in any previous season. The Vinegar Pissers’ 124 point score was the second highest weekly winning score, but falls way behind their own record set in the 2013-2014 season when they managed 165 points in a week in which virtually everybody passed the 100 point barrier following a mammoth double gameweek. That same season produced the highest winning finishing score in our league of 2356 points. Despite there being more 100+ weekly winners in this season, The VPs finished 67 points behind that total. It’s worth noting that the 124 points scored in GW31 was done so from only four games. Another thirteen of our fifty teams passed the century mark that week. And most of them were only fielding bit part teams.

We had ten different managers of the month, six managers taking two weekly accolades, but only one, The bloody Vinegar Pissers, managing three highest weekly scores. Shoelace Untied took the December prize, accumulating 477 points for the month – the highest ever monthly total.

The players

We may have fallen just short of breaking our manager records this season, but the reason we got so close was largely due to one player – Mohamed Salah. He became the first player to pass 300 points for the season. No-one else came close – which may explain why we didn’t quite eclipse the higher scores from four years ago. Back then, in the ‘Suarez’ season, there was a great supporting cast, with the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling, Robin Van Persie, Yaya Toure and Eden Hazard all scoring big, playing consistently and featuring in a lot of teams. This season only Harry Kane, Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne passed the 200 point mark. Despite Kane running Salah (fairly) close in the golden boot chase, he was still close to 100 points behind. Which says more about the frustrating, annoying, inconsistent, trolling season the Spurs striker had. Nowt for weeks then just when you get sick of it all three frickin’ hat tricks…or whatever it was. Dickhead. Still – he’ll be in from the start next season.

Kane picked up more player of the week awards (three) than anyone else. Salah, who only scored more than anyone else once throughout the whole season, was much more consistent. A goal every week rather than three and a gap. And lets mention GW31 again – 29 points – the highest ever single match gameweek score. Sergio Aguero, Heung-Min Son and Marko Arnautovic were the only other players to get two player of the week awards. Tottenham won the award six times ahead of Chelsea with five, and then perhaps surprisingly, Manchester City, with only four winners. Ayoze Perez, Federico Fernandez and Callum Wilson showed up on the bargain list more than once and Newcastle appeared to be the best go-to cheapo team, winning the award five times over the course of the season. Watford were king of the twats offering up six ‘worst of the week’, with Jose Holebas winning the award twice. Jack Stephens also won it twice – and in consecutive weeks, so well done to him. Manchester City did dominate the goal of the week contenders with eight wins, but anyone who tells you that Jamie Vardy’s over the shoulder volley against West Brom in GW30 isn’t the goal of the season, is some kind of goon.

Debatable team of the season

  • GK – David De Gea – 172 points

No arguments here, although Lorus Karius did pick up more points per match of all keepers playing more than 10 games. Karius and Mignolet played half a season each – 19 games a piece. Mignolet scored on average 1.1 points per game less and kept three less clean sheets – although still 7 out of 19 which is pretty respectable.

  • DR – Cesar Azpilicueta – 175 points
  • DL – Marcos Alonso – 165 points
  • DC – Nicolas Otamendi – 156 points
  • DC – Jan Vertonghen – 138 points

Antonio Valencia, Ben Davies and Kyle Walker all scored more than Vertonghen, but none are central defenders. In the favoured three at the back, you’d probably have to drop Alonso. He hasn’t scored enough to warrant his usual left wing back position ahead of the highest scoring midfielders either…coming up next. Andrew Robertson missed 16 games and Phil Jones missed 15 games, but both beat all of the above, other than Alonso, in points per game. Jones managed 15 clean sheets in his 23 games. Basically – if he didn’t play – United usually conceded.

  • DM – Luca Milivojevic – 144 points
  • CM – Kevin De Bruyne – 209 points
  • AM – Mohamed Salah – 303 points
  • AM – Raheem Sterling – 229 points
  • AM – Christian Eriksen – 199 points

Obviously, this is where it all gets a bit ‘debatable’. No real team is complete without some kind of defensive holding player, so when you see the PFA team of the year, and it’s basically a goalkeeper and 10 attackers, you do wonder if they ever really watch the game. But then if you were going to stick a defensive midfielder in there, you wouldn’t necessarily be basing their inclusion on their fantasy points total, seeing as how nothing they do is ever taken into consideration when the scores are totted up. You’d just pick N’Golo Kante and move on wouldn’t you? Milivojevic is definitely worth a mention though. Arguably the most reliable penalty taker in the league, double figures for goals and in the top 10 for bonuses.

  • CF – Harry Kane – 217 points

His best goalscoring season but not his his best fantasy season. Too many braces and hat tricks, if their can be such a thing, and not enough consistency. Kane would go missing for weeks, but then burst back into life racking up the highest bonus score too. It was all about catching him on a good day. He blanked in 19 gameweeks – half a season. Salah failed to score anything other than appearance points in only 10 games. Aguero, and latterly, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, finished the season with more points per match. There’s your front three for August.

Real Jorvik win the double gameweek with 86 points. They shared that score with Hucking Fell, but scored five goals to HF’s three and claim the weekly accolade. It was a double gameweek that could have delivered more. Jorvik only had two players that played twice and they only contributed 18 points. Jorvik’s best player was an elite single gameweeker. Diego Costa was handed the armband and had his best scoring week of the season amassing 16 points – 32 as captain.

In truth not all that many of us went double gameweek crazy. The managers who went for it scored in the 60’s and 70’s, but knowing an 80 point score was possible with only two double gameweekers makes you wonder whether it was worth it. Hucking Fell played four double gameweekers with a return of 53 points. They captained Beneteke, and had De Gea in goal. The United keeper returned the best of the double gameweek scores. The United defence boosted a lot of totals with their 0-0 Manc derby result. Daley Blind, Eric Bailly and Matteo Darmian all had double clean sheets. Frustratingly, Antonio Valencia, the most picked United defender, only played in one game. Watch out for Jose moaning about rotation for the next few weeks. As attractive a player Valencia is, he seems to be the one the United manager is more likely to rotate out of games.

There was a lot of investment in the Boro defence, a move which looked doomed for failure after 20 minutes against Bournemouth. At that point they were 2-0 down and a man down. They redeemed themselves against Sunderland with a 1-0 victory. And Christian Benteke was the main Palace scorer. Two goals against Liverpool helped boost the scores of those that had opted for him as captain.

The whole week was sent into a spin before it had even begun with Ibrahimovic’s injury. That forced a few managers into last minute hit taking transfers. He’s out for the season now. Marcos Rojo picked up a similar season ending injury in their Europa tie, so maybe Jose’s moans are justified. Aquamar were forced into five transfers because of the injuries, taking a 16 pint hit. They brought Rojo in only to have to transfer him out immediately. The gameweek worked out OK for them. Their overall lead was reduced by a measly 5 points as their double gameweekers contributed a useful 53 points towards their final 74 point total.

 

Player of the week – David De Gea – 17 points. Double gameweek goalie coming out on top.

Bargain of the week – Marc Pugh – 16 points. Single gameweek midfielder runs him close.

Donkey of the week – Oumar Niasse – -2 points. Unlucky – this card has now been rescinded.

Goal of the week – Diego Costa. Team goal alert.

 

A preamble. We’ve still not had the Manchester United v Bournemouth game. The most disorganised club in Europe it appears have left everyone hanging. Places are still to be settled at the top of the Buckets table. I suppose it’s exciting, although I don’t think there’s anything that can stop Caligula being crowned champions. They’re awaiting a score for Chris Smalling as well as a point from Aaron Cresswell who will replace Dimitri Payet once substitutions are activated.

The Kolarov Mane have climbed into second but can’t go any higher. Your Ad Here are 14 points further back with Simon Francis on the bench. Unless the Bournemouth captain gets in among the goals and keeps a clean sheet on Tuesday night, third is as high as they can hope for. That seems pretty much nailed on as Edgbaston are 25 points further back and with only Manuel Lanzini to come in after substitutions and David De Gea to play.

There is a battle for fourth. Shoelace sit in fifth, three points behind Edgbaston with Chris Smalling and Anthony Martial to play. A goal for either of those should be enough, providing of course they stay on the pitch. Or even get on the pitch in the first place. Might Van Gaal rest players now?

Unfortunately for Rocky Ba Bauer, now in 6th, it appears to be out of reach.

If Edgbaston lose the fourth place spot, they may have the May manager of the month award to fall back on. They currently lead Init FC by nine points. Init probably need Chris Smalling to score to overhaul the lead. Walking With Memphis, however, three points further back, and 12 behind Edgbaston, have Smalling, Antonio Valencia and Anthony Martial to play. LVG playing the kids might be the only thing that keeps Memphis (and Shoelace) from toppling Edgbaston.

Full weekly round up will arrive sometime Wednesday I expect.

The penultimate week of the season and the week that could decide the title. A double gameweek almost as epic as the last one with eight teams playing twice, and arguably five of those teams with something to play for. These final two weeks also make up the quick sprint that is the race to be May manager of the month.

Gameweek 34 produced 31 scores of 100 points or more, including the highest ever Buckets League weekly score. It’ll take a lot to beat the 190 points posted by The Kolarov Mane. If you think you need a triple captain to achieve that, think again. TKM used their bench boost and still outscored the rest of us. I’m not sure there are too many triple captain holders left. It’s certainly the chip that promises the most points, but as TKM proved, first and foremost, you need the right combo of double gameweek players.

FC Caligula, however, are one team yet to use their triple captain chip. If they get that right, and I’m guessing this is the week it’s going to be played, then the title is surely theirs. The obvious choices for the armband don’t appear as cut and dried as they did in gameweek 34. West Ham offer up the most in form players of those playing twice. Andy Carroll has scored six in six games, while Mark Noble as four in his last two.

Daniel Sturridge is starting much more regularly now for Liverpool following Divock Origi’s injury and Jurgen Klopp clearly not liking the Benteke option too much. Although he may opt for the Belgian if he think’s Sturridge’s European exploits have been too much for him in midweek. Klopp rotated the team completely for last weeks defeat at Swansea, resting almost every first teamer for their European semi final. Whether the first team turn out for both of these league games will probably depend on progression through to the Europa League final. As I write it’s 1-1 on aggregate.

The leading form defender is Antonio Valencia, who appears to have jumped ahead of Matteo Darmian and Tim Fosu-Mensah as Manchester United’s first choice right back. I’m not sure he’s guaranteed the start, but if he does line up in both games, he’s good for assists as well as clean sheet points.

The real risk would be to plump for Eden Hazard. Remember him? His three goals in his last two games, including the one that ended Spurs’ title hopes have earned him 24 points – almost a quarter of his entire season’s haul. Hazard has scored 233, 202 and 190 in his three Premier League seasons, yet he may not even pass 100 in this. He’s currently sat on 90. Games against Sunderland and Liverpool might help him past that total. He’s not guaranteed a start – he didn’t start against Spurs – but his performance in the second half changed the game. The risk is dare you part with £10.8 million for him?

Gameweek 34 results

April 21, 2016

Sorry. Virtually impossible for me to write a complete update this week I’m afraid. The Premier League thought it’d be a good idea to stretch this round of fixtures out to Thursday evening, giving me no time at all from the results being published to cover everything, in what has probably been the highest scoring gameweek since records began. Gameweek 31 of the 2013/14 season saw all of a 26 team Buckets League score over 100 points. Early signs are at least that amount will hit triple figures this week.

The Kolarov Mane have probably posted the highest score – a mammoth 190 points – scoring 14 goals. That makes them the current holders of the highest weekly score prize, blitzing Romeo’s 126 points from gameweek 8. What had become a two horse race for the title has now opened up to include, potentially, another four teams. Maybe more. Not forgetting there’s another one of these double gameweeks on the horizon in GW37. Who knows who might come into contention then. It’s fair to say a few team’s seasons have ended with this week’s scores as well.

Lots of chips were played to great effect. Sergio Aguero and Alexis Sanchez were the popular triple captain choices and both did the business. Aguero narrowly beat Sanchez to the highest weekly player score by a point. His 26 points is the highest of the season. Those that triple captained Aguero picked up a massive 78 points from him alone. No higher score has ever appeared against a players name for a weeks work. And there were loads of other impressive displays.

Heurelho Gomes saved two penalties and kept a clean sheet to score 19 points from Watford’s game against West Brom. He added another two points from their second fixture. That must be the highest weekly score for a keeper. Many gambled on Manchester United defenders, although not necessarily Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian, who added either goal, assist or bonus points to their clean sheets. Four – count them – FOUR Newcastle players posted double figure scores. Jamaal Lascelles was the bargain buy of the week. And even those that couldn’t field a team full of double gameweekers had the Tottenham express to fall back on. Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen only need one game to hit double figures.

I hope to post the complete table before it disappears at the start of the next gameweek. I’ll be spending most of tomorrow urging my daughter to hurry up and get born so I can do that.

 

Player of the week – Sergio Aguero – 26 points. Most of which came against Chelsea, not Newcastle.

Bargain of the week – Jamaal Lascelles – 16 points. Too little too late.

Donkey of the week – Thibault Courtois – -1 points. Second red card and second time donkey.

Goal of the week – Aaron Cresswell.

There you go – all a bit back to front this weekend. The site says that it’s still updating – I guess there’s a lot to update. Although I’m pretty sure this table is correct. We’ve 30 teams that have made it passed 100 points.

I might have jumped the gun on suggesting it was more than a two horse race. Caligula and Your Ad Here still look the most likely winners. Rocky Ba Bauer had taken over at the top by end of play on Sunday. Caligula and YAH’s Arsenal contingent came good on Thursday evening to propel them back out in front. The Kolarov Mane have hit their highest position. They have the momentum. They’re way out in front in the April manager of the month race. Shoelace posted the second highest score and find themselves in their highest league position just at the right time. It was a bad week for Atletico Chappers who have dropped out of contention, and GrievousAngelRangel, who were 40 points behind fourth place last week, but only managed 67 points this week to fall 140 points behind.
