Buckets Cup preliminary round

The preliminary round of the Buckets Cup was played this week. You can check the full list of results and the draw for the first round proper on the Buckets Cup page. Biscuitmen, adrift by over 100 points at the bottom of the league, scored a win over Kompany & Co. They played their wildcard this week to aid the victory and are maybe looking at sneaking through the cup to rescue their dismal league season. The Vinegar Pissers became the highest placed team to exit the competition, losing to new league leaders and highest scoring team of the week, Brexiter City.

Manager of the week – Colin Goulding – Brexiter City – 67 points

Speaking of which…Brexiter have made a bee-line for the top having spent most of the season loitering around the lower reaches of the top ten. Their week winning score pushes Hornets back down to second by three points. Both captained Salah for 30 points, but the player that arguably made the difference for Brexiter was Luca Milovejovic. The Palace midfielder is a regular pick now and on penalties. This was his sixth goal of the season – his fourth from the spot. It was also his second full bonus point haul in five weeks.

Player of the week – Aaron Ramsey – 20 points

A good week for Arsenal in which not only did Aaron Ramsey place himself back on our radar, but Henrik Mkhitaryan assisted three of the five they put past Arsenal and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his debut. Maybe that old Dortmund partnership is worth keeping an eye on. Both Ramsey and Mkhitaryan’s in and out seasons have seen their values drop to £6.9 and £7.7 million respectively. Depending on the make up of your team they could be nicely priced to slot in alongside those luxury midfielders from City and Liverpool. Ramsey’s total is only the second 20 point haul this season, equalling Sergio Aguero’s score from gameweek five.

Bargain of the week – Federico Fernandez – 10 points

The Swans revival continues apace. This is the third consecutive week in which Swansea have a leading player. It’s the second time in three weeks that player has been Federico Fernandez. They’ve just put eight past Notts County in a cup replay too, so this run could continue for a few more weeks yet. Their fixtures up to GW32 are all against teams in and around them at the bottom, and in their current form all look very winnable.

Twat of the week – Michael Keane – -1 points

A bad week for Everton. It looked like Allardyce had sorted their defence out, but it’s crumbled again in recent weeks. Keane was the fall guy getting hooked at half time having already conceded four. It has been six weeks since their last clean sheet.

Goal of the week – Jose Izquierdo. Lots of contenders this week – Wanyama, Salah, Lemina, Danilo. Start 1m40s in

Quite a few managers played their all out attack chips this weekend. Well, you’ve got to get rid of it sometime I suppose. This was on the Saturday in which seven of the ten teams to play kept a clean sheet, and the player of the week was the game’s lowest priced first team regular, penalty saving goalkeeper, Eldin Jakupovic.

Maybe Aquamar thinks the league is won. They’re taking hits for fun at the moment. Another three this week for eight more points, although all worked out ridiclously well. Aguero, Stephens and Hazard returned 37 points – and all are set up nicely for the upcoming double gameweeks. The gap has closed up at the top again – now at 50 points. And there continues to be a lot of jostling for position behind. Kebab Eaters, second two weeks ago, are now down to sixth. Rico United climb into prize money contention with the highest score of the week, and down in seventh, Biscuitmen posted an 80 point score to keep themselves in the hunt.

Rico’s week winning 86 points wasn’t quite enough to pinch the manager of the month prize. They fell short of Hucking Fell who also held off challenges from The Craggy Islanders and Shoelace to pocket the £60.

Donkey of the week award – Nacho Monreal – 0 points. They’re not convincing ahead of their double double gameweeks

Goal of the week – Emre Can.

We have two scores above a hundred this week in a high scoring week all round. Release The Hounds hit 105 points with only one player, Nathaniel Clyne, scoring nothing other than their appearance points. The front six scored 79 points between them, which included eight goals. I’m not sure what Kevin De Bruyne was doing as captain, but having Dele Alli as vice certainly helped.

Weekly winners however are The Hardy Boys who, with 116 points, have guaranteed their bye through to the first round of the cup and risen four places in the league. They are now within touching distance of the mid table scrum. Hardy Boys were helped by playing their bench boost to the tune of 13 extra points. The rest was made up largely from scoring seven goals and keeping five clean sheets.

It was a week on which most of the old faithful could be relied upon. All of the top seven teams kept a clean sheet. Ten teams in all didn’t concede. Most Buckets teams were able to keep at least three clean sheets. And at the other end Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane and Ross Barkley all netted twice. Barkley’s status as a midfielder edged him ahead of his rivals to collect the player of the week award.

Our top three have been pegged back a little further. The 49 point gap between fourth and first last week is now down to 24. A 49 point gap now encompasses the whole of he top 10. FC Caligula have finally dismounted Golden Boys from the top spot, but they and Your Ad Here should be looking over their shoulders. Atletico Chappers, Bisciutmen and Rocky B Bauer have all moved within striking distance.

 

Player of the week – Ross Barkley – 16 points. His second award.

Bargain of the week – Fraser Foster – 12 points. Four games back from injury – four clean sheets.

Donkey of the week – Jamaal Lascelles – -3 points. Classic defender’s bad week – three conceded and sent off into the bargain.

Goal of the week – Jamie Vardy. His third nomination, and Leicester’s fifth.

As far as player totals were concerned, it was possibly the lowest scoring week since the Buckets League began, so fair play to all those managers that managed to get scores into the 50s and 60s. Only sixteen goals were scored and only five of those were actually scored by strikers. No forward managed a score in double figures. In fact only seven players passed the ten point mark – and when I say passed the ten point mark, I mean seven players scored either ten or eleven points. It was a weekend in which defences definitely came out on top. Even Norwich, Newcastle and Villa kept clean sheets.

Biscuitmen and Shoelace Untied were the two teams to score 60+. Biscuitmen’s 64 is the highest of the week. After dropping from first to seventh to tenth in three weeks, they’ve bounced back up to fourth. They earned 20 points from a four man defence and did what we all should have done and handed Jamie Vardy the captaincy, thus adding another 18 points to their score. The Leicester striker scored for the ninth successive game. Next gameweek, when we all make him captain, his streak is bound to come to an end. Shoelace also handed the armband to Vardy, as did the majority of those managers posting 50+ scores. Common sense really.

 

Player of the week – Jesse Lingard – 11 points. Seems to be keeping Memphis Depay on the bench.

Bargain of the week – Rob Elliot – 10 points. Newcastle’s third choice is collecting five points per game on average.

Donkey of the week – Gareth McAuley – -2 points. The only red card of the week.

Goal of the week – Manuel Lanzini.

The Golden Boys have strengthened their position at the top of the league posting the highest score of the week with 78 points, and in doing so winning their first manager of the week award. They scored 20 points more than most of the chasing pack and become the first team past the 600 point barrier. They haven’t played any wildcards or chips yet. They haven’t even had to pay for a transfer. And they’re one of the few teams (maybe the only Buckets team) who plumped for Heurelho Gomes as one of their keepers. It’s a punt that’s paying off. The Watford stopper kept his fifth clean sheet at the weekend, picked up two more bonus points and moved to the top of the keeper charts. The Golden Boys are smashing it. And they’ve unluckily just missed out on the October manager of the month. In August they finished fifth in the monthly table – in September they finished sixth. They made a late charge for the October award but just fell short, finishing fifth…

3 Romeo’s Honda Van Rob Hewer 73 269
4 Bicuitmen Chris Morton 51 265
5 Golden Boys Stephanie Cripps 78 263

So it’s congratulations to Game of Throw Ins who are the October champs. They’re equal top of the monthly table on 271 points, but scored two more goals than Hedgehog Corpse (19-17) to nick the prize. Hedgehog were clear on Saturday night but double figure contributions from Romelu Lukaku and Graziano Pelle on Sunday saw GOTIs edge ahead. Hedgehog will be disappointed having left 16 points on the bench. It would have been more than enough to secure the award. Kicking themselves even harder should be Romeo’s and the Biscuitmen, who had 17 and 25 points sat on their respective benches. Again, more than enough to pinch the October prize, and considering their mega scores in gameweek 8, it’s a prize money opportunity missed.

Player of the week – Arouna Kone – 20 points. At £4.8 million, our cheapest POTW yet.

Bargain of the week – Jack Butland – 11 points. Always hard to pick when the POTW is so cheap.

Donkey of the week – Russell Martin – -2 points. Double donkey.

Goal of the week – Philippe Coutinho. His second GOTS nomination.
