Manager of the week – The Craggy Islanders – Adrian Roche – 125 points

We may have our champions. An expertly played double gameweek has (probably) pinched the highest gameweek score and has created a gap at the top of the table with three gameweeks left to play. The Islanders scored one of only eight triple figure scores in the week in which they were more likely to happen. The bench boost was the chip of choice for the Islanders and they managed to pick two of the three players that amassed 17 points – Gerard Deulefeu and Jonny Castro Otto. Add to that a 16 point captain contribution from Raheem Sterling, a double clean sheet 15 pointer from Aymeric Laporte and a much welcomed improvement in Brighton’s form offering 12 points from Mat Ryan. The Islanders are left with their triple captain, as are their closest challengers, Da Pitch. Albion and Madrid are chipless and will more than likely battle it out for third and fourth.

Player of the week – Ayoze Perez – Newcastle United – 17 points

It’s not uncommon for a single gameweeker to triumph in a double gameweek – it happened last week of course. Thanks Brighton. It was maybe less likely to happen this week given the larger pool of double gameweek players to pick from and the teams that were playing – six of the top half. I mentioned a few weeks ago as Ayoze Perez posted a 16 point gameweek that at the same time last season he came into incredible goal scoring form to save Newcastle from a relegation scrap. And that the same thing could happen last season. It is.

Bargain of the week – Jonny Castro Otto – Wolverhampton Wanderers – 17 points

Manchester City were the only team to keep two clean sheets of the double gameweekers. Wolves kept one against Brighton and were unlucky not to add a second against Arsenal. Despite conceding one against the Gunners two of their three goals had wing back involvement. Matt Doherty scored his fourth league goal of the season, assisted by his mate on the opposite flank, Jonny, who added a second assist to help him to his second double figure total of the season.

Twat of the week – Nacho Monreal – Arsenal – 0 points

It was difficult to pick a twat this week. Monreal scored zero and was the costliest of those players so he takes the honour. Both Arsenal and Manchester United shipped six and did their Europa League hopes the world of good.

Goal of the week – Lucas Digne.

Buckets Cup preliminary round

The first round draw for the Buckets Cup is now complete. Click the cup link to view it. In the preliminary round, our bottom side Ross’s Champions had an easy victory over Your Ad Here to progress. They’ll now face last year’s winners, Puddle Splash Van. Spare a thought for Nashton Villa, who despite coming out of the double gameweek with 92 points, came up against the near perfect 120 points gained by Shoelace. I think in real life scoring that’s a 7-6.

Manager of the week – Caroline Strong – Shoelace Untied – 120 points

A bumper score thanks to the right double gameweek picks and the added bonus of just about every other team member contributing something. It doesn’t get any smoother than that. If you’re going to pick double gameweekers you may as well pick the two highest scoring and then captain one of them. There were plenty of other big scores around, most of whom had Aguero, but adding Laporte to the mix was the cherry on the cake. And if you captained Sane who was hauled off after 59 minutes of the Everton game – I feel your pain.

Player of the week – Aymeric Laporte – Manchester City – 20 points

He was always likely to get the most minutes of any outfield player, having played just about every game of the Premier League season so far. He’s had many more minutes than any of his outfield team mates in sky blue. The other nailed on double starter was Ederson. I’m sure most owners would have settled for one clean sheet – the City defence haven’t been the most watertight recently. But to return a goal, an assist, a clean sheet and three bonus points is the stuff of dreams.

Bargain of the week – Jeffrey Schlupp – Crystal Palace – 14 points

Schglup is listed as a defender but when he has played he’s played up top. Wilfried Zaha is back for the next game so this is probably a one game burst for him.

Twat of the week – Mathias Jorgensen – Huddersfield – 0 points

Huddersfield were so crap this week they shipped five and didn’t pick up a single booking. Meaning their most owned and most expensive defender carries the can of the weekly twat. Next time you ship five, at least give someone a kick and look as if you care.

Goal of the week – Andre Gomes.
