Buckets Cup quarter finals

Are we on for another double winner in their debut season, much like FC Caligula did in 2015/2016? Hornets are still fighting on both fronts. Their score was the lowest of the quarter final winners this week, but still above the game average and most importantly, enough to see off Fun Lovren Criminals. They will play first time semi finalists, Game of Throw Ins, whilst another last four debutant, Atletico Chappers, will take on Emergency Gap Jumper. Should be an interesting final in Gameweek 31.

Manager of the week – The Vinegar Pissers – Paul Hawkins – 74 points

Three scores crept above 70 points this week, the highest of which was the 74 posted by The Vinegar Pissers. They’re the latest team to launch an assault on the Hornets domination, climbing up into third just behind Brexiter, who themselves, narrowed the gap by three. As well as picking up on another player of the week performance by Heung-Min Son, the Pissers also garnered 15 points from both of Brighton’s goalscorers in their victory over Arsenal. Glen Murray has six in eight games and only Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero have scored more since the turn of the year.

Player of the week – Heung-Min Son – 16 points

His second player of the week total and with that becomes only the third player this season to achieve the highest weekly score on more than one occasion. He had been on a run of blank weeks since his last double figure score and had started dropping out of teams. No goals and assists, the return to the team of Erik Lamela and the purchase of Lucas Moura obviously putting doubt about his return potential. That’ll probably reverse now and He’ll no doubt be a popular choice once Spurs’s double gameweek(s) roll round.

Bargain of the week – Ki Sung-Yeung – 13 points

A South Korean double at the top of the weekly player tables this week. Ki has played nearly every game under Swansea’s new manager and has obviously played an important part in their revival. His last run in the team under the previous manager yielded no returns at all. This time round he has two goals, two assists and two double figure totals in the last four games. And for under £5 million. There’ll be Swansea double gameweeks too.

Twat of the week – Ashley Williams – -2 points

Sam Allardyce solved whatever problems there were at Everton for all of about two games. They’re surprisingly leaky, especially away from home, and three red cards, the latest of which was dished out to their captain for the day, is the most for any team in the top flight. Apart from those bruising bastards over at Watford of course.

Goal of the week – Nemanja Matic.

Last goal in the last minute of the last game.

The reduced gameweek. That’s less games – so low scores were somewhat inevitable. Or perhaps they shouldn’t have been given that four teams managed to score four goal victories. But, the worldwide average was only 39 points. Maybe it had something to do with the scorers in those games – Eden Hazard? Or it may have had more to do with the fact that everyone was expecting another Tottenham rout – and that didn’t materialise.

In fact this could be the weekend that the Premier League title was effectively decided. Any doubts over whether Leicester could cope without Jamie Vardy were answered emphatically as they thumped Swansea (defo on the beach) 4-0. The contrasting form of Leicester and Spurs players over the last few weeks has seen a lot of managers opt to dispense of the likes of Mahrez and Vardy, yet keep hold of Kane, Alli, Eriksen etc. That tactic didn’t pay off this week. Vardy’s replacement, Leonardo Ulloa, proved what a useful asset he is, scoring twice and picking up 13 points for anyone that dared take the punt.

One of whom was Hedgehog Corpse, our highest weekly scorer with 66 points. Ulloa came in alongside Mahrez, who was made captain, and Robert Huth, to contribute 39 points to their overall score.

The top eight are all non-movers this week, although Your Ad Here’s 16 point swing against Caligula moves them closer to the top and further away from the chasing pack. Maybe it is back to that two horse race again.

 

Player of the week – Kelechi Iheanacho – 16 points. Better than Bony and half the price.

Bargain of the week – Ashley Westwood – 15 points. Probably the best Villa performance of the season – and they still got hammered.

Donkey of the week – Ashley Williams – -1 points. Beach.

Goal of the week – Daniel Sturridge. Bit of a dearth this week

Atletico Chappers score 77 points this week to claim the manager of the week prize. They were 18th only a fortnight ago, but have now risen to 5th, which goes to show that with a couple of good scores under your belt there are still opportunities to climb this league. Chappers sit at the top of that congested middle order which sees just 37 points separate 19 places. Chappers brought in Sergio Aguero in gameweek 20 to replace Romelu Lukaku, which was a brave move, given Lukaku’s form up until that point. Aguero has since scored 26 points to Lukaku’s nine. An inspired transfer.

On Sunday evening we had new leaders. Golden Boys have had a poor month, sitting only 33rd in the January table. After the Sunday games both Your Ad Here and FC Caligula had overtaken them at the top of the table. Not for the first time this season Ashley Williams added vital points to Golden Boys’ score to reclaim their place at the summit. Williams’ goal, clean sheet and bonuses totalled 15 points. Williams scored three consecutive 9 point scores in December with similar effect. The gap at the top was 27 points last week. It’s now down to nine. Could it be time for the Golden Boys to finally play a wildcard?

It was another week in which the old reliables of the first half of the season failed to deliver. Best epitomised by Riyad Mahrez, who missed his second penalty of the season. It’s five weeks of nothingness now from the Algerian. But whereas Leicester are still maintaining a title challenge of sorts, Watford’s bubble may have burst. And with it the scoring run of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo. We appear to be in the middle of a changing of the guard as far as form players are concerned. And it’s happened pretty much as the first half of the season has finished and the second half has started. Only Mesut Ozil, of those previous big hitters, occupies a place on the first page of form players. Maybe we’ll all be playing those wildcards a lot sooner than we thought.

 

Player of the week – Charlie Daniels – 18 points. Bournemouth’s full backs are definitely worth a look at the moment.

Bargain of the week – Matt Targett – 11 points. From nowhere. Two consecutive double figure scores. And for £3.7 million.

Donkey of the week – Scott Dann – 0 points. Another bubble burst?

Goal of the week – Ayoze Perez.

Due to having a dose of manflu so severe I can barely walk, and being about as prepared and organised for Christmas as Man City are for last minute free kicks, I’m combining last weeks results with the coming weeks fixture preview. This might happen again over the coming weeks. I only hope I can keep up with the gameweeks and not miss anything. Although I do hope some of you are so stuffed/pissed/embedded with family that you forget your managerial duties and let me climb a few more places. Thanks.

Not too many people – hardly anyone in fact – thought there’d be much advantage in drafting in Sunderland and Reading players this week – and they’d be half right. Reading didn’t offer anything. They didn’t score and conceded 4. Only Adam Federici, who picked up 2 extra points for the saves he made, scored anything other than their basic appearance points. Sunderland, by virtue of the convincing win over Reading, did have a good week. Their defeat to Chelsea was maybe expected, but they did score a goal courtesy of Adam Johnson. He also picked up a bonus point out of that game. James McLean was credited with the assist. McLean also scored against Reading, assisted by Johnson. Carlos Cuellar assisted and kept a clean sheet. John O’Shea and Simon Mignolet were the other clean sheet keepers. Sessegnon and Fletcher were the other goal scorers, with Danny Rose grabbing the last assist. Across those players there were plenty of points to be had, particularly with McLean, Johnson and Cuellar, who all nothced double figures. Giving McLean the captaincy would have bagged you 32 points. This was enough to make McLean the overall player of the week.

And after all that, Pescara Rangers win the gameweek with 84 points, and not a Reading or Sunderland player in sight. There were lots of goals around this week. Even Fernando Torres found the net twice, as did Michu, as usual, Arteta, twice from the penalty spot, James McCarthy and Wayne Rooney. Pescara bravely handed Torres the captaincy, scoring 32 points. Van Persie, Michu, Yaya, Tevez and Jason Puncheon all added goals or assists.

A word on the Manc derby –  Rio’s been asking for that for years. All that hurtling forward 90 yards to celebrate goals he had nothing to do with, kissing his badge and thrusting his hair lip in the faces of the opposition fans. Wanker.

15 Dec 15:00 Liverpool Liverpool v Aston Villa Aston Villa
15 Dec 15:00 Man Utd Man Utd v Sunderland Sunderland
15 Dec 15:00 Norwich Norwich v Wigan Wigan

16 Dec 13:30 Tottenham Tottenham v Swansea Swansea
16 Dec 16:00 West Brom West Brom v West Ham West Ham
17 Dec 20:00 Reading Reading v Arsenal Arsenal

As for next week, well, Torres won’t be adding to his tally. Chelsea don’t play. Their opponents would have been Southampton, so Jason Puncheon can’t add to that run of form either. A few teams will have decisions to make on what to do with their Chelsea and/or Saints players. Both teams have winnable home fixtures in week 18, so providing your not going to be left with only 10 men, just leave it for a week. You pick up two free subs along the way. Then there’s the quick switch option. Kicking Torres out for a week to bring in a striker purposely for this weeks fixtures could work. How many could Van Persie or Rooney get against Sunderland? Suarez could have as good week against Villa. Defoe against Swansea? Tevez or Aguero against Newcastle? Sebastian Bassong against Wigan even? You read that right. Three goals in four games for the Norwich centre half, and three consecutive clean sheets before that. Whose to say he won’t score and keep a clean sheet this weekend. Not bad for a player who has suffered 3 relegations in the last 5 seasons, and was probably expecting another one in this.

  • Player of the week – James McLean – 16 points. Had to be a player from one of the teams that played twice
  • Bargain of the week – James McCarthy – 15 points. Should also have been from one of the teams that played twice.
  • Donkey of the week – Ashley Williams – -1 points. Torn apart by Norwich.

Goal of the weekend

Glen Johnson v West Ham
