Manager of the month – The Winnings R Mine – David Bruce – 270 points (14 goals)

It was a close run thing for January Manager of the Month. The top four were separated by three points with The Winnings R Mine and Brexiter City both scoring 270 points and sharing first place. The Winnings R Mine take the prize, outscoring Brexiter by 14 goals to 11.

Blakes11 triple captained in an attempt to pinch the award but just fell short. The Vinegar Pissers, despite winning manager of the week, will be cursing a Harry Kane captain choice – possibly not for the first time this season. Kane was outscored by seven other players in their line up – all of whom, as captain, would have given them the monthly award as well.

Manager of the week – The Vinegar Pissers – Paul Hawkins – 76 points

It was a week in which the top scoring teams – Liverpool and Manchester City – did as they were supposed to and registered comfortable wins against struggling teams with all of their star players chipping in with either an assist or goal. It definitely wasn’t a week for relying on the clean sheet experts – Manchester United or Chelsea – to do what they were supposed to and keep out Spurs and Bournemouth. That’s maybe slightly harsh on United, but the double whammy for Phil Jones owners – and there are a lot – is the minus score courtesy of and own goal and a booking. Chelsea have no excuse. But for David De Gea in goal, The Vinegar Pissers avoided the dodgy defensive displays and picked up a healthy 38 points from their Liverpool and City contingent.

Player of the week – Sam Clucas – 15 points

There’s a Swansea revival to take notice of. They’re suddenly the team offering the most tempting cheap players. Jordan Ayew is the form cheap striker scoring four in his last seven. In GW24 Federico Fernandez was the best bargain player and Alfie Mawson was only just pipped to the overall player award by one point. Sam Clucas takes that prize this week with two goals in their impressive win over Arsenal to follow up their similarly impressive, and unexpected, win over Liverpool last week.

Bargain of the week – Callum Wilson – 12 points

Every single stat surrounding the Chelsea v Bournemouth fixture pointed towards a comfortable home win. The last five games between the two have all resulted in a Chelsea victory by an aggregate score of 13-3. Add to the that the fact that Chelsea had kept six clean sheets in their previous eight games with Bournemouth only managing four all season. It’s the reason Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta top the £7 million mark for defenders. This week they collected a solitary point each as Wilson netted his fourth in six games and second double figure score in three.

Twat of the week – Phil Jones – -2 points

Who else? The fifth most owned defender in the game drops a clanger. It’s a one off. He’s been the most consistent United defender and is the joint highest bonus scorer across the back line. Don’t be surprised if he picks up another nine point haul against Huddersfield at the weekend.

Goal of the week – Christian Eriksen. Bit of a dearth of quality this week. This for no other reason that it was scored in 10 seconds. You’d think the internet would have a video of that whole 10 seconds wouldn’t you? It doesn’t.

Manager of the week – Despicable Mee – – Trevor Gordon – 87 points

Not only the manager of the week, but our new leader. As soon as we slip into the New Year, Hornets, ever present at the top since August, are knocked from their perch. Maybe this could be Despicable Mee’s year after two consecutive second place finishes. They played their free hit with good effect, although it would have been a lot better – and for a lot more managers – had Harry Kane (yes, him again) done what he was supposed to and scored two more hat tricks. I hope no-one triple captained him. The double gameweek could have been better. It was easier to draft in West Ham players than Spurs players given their cheapness and that didn’t open up too many point scoring opportunities. The free hit was probably the best chip to play in the circumstances with doubts over rotation and the fitness of some players. Without it, introducing Alli, Eriksen, Son and/or Kane would probably have meant losing a Liverpool or Man City big hitter. DM’s free hit consisted of three from West Ham and Spurs, and three from Man City and Leicester, who were the week’s highest scoring teams. It couldn’t have worked out any better really. Honorable mentions for The Winnings R Mine, who now sit 3rd, having been in 21st place on Christmas Eve. TWRM played an early wildcard, dropping Kane (brave/smart) and captaining the highest scoring double gameweeker, Son Heung-Min. Must Try Harder went with the free hit and a similar team set up to Despicable Mee to the tune of 83 points. Blakes11 totaled 86 with their early wildcard, captaining Alli, ignoring Kane, and picking up 51 points from double gameweekers.

Player of the week – Riyad Mahrez – 14 points

Mahrez has been racking up some impressive totals in recent weeks with either a goal or an assist in eight of his last nine games. He’s now the 5th highest scorer overall – the fourth highest midfielder. This might explain why he still feels like a slightly more under the radar choice. Is there any room? It’s not impossible to have him in your midfield, but it’s at the expense of someone who maybe feels more likely to score – like a Coutinho, a Sanchez or a Hazard. Yet, he beats them all in overall total and form.

Bargain of the week – Marc Albrighton – 13 points

Albrighton was pipped to the overall player of the week by his teammate, Mahrez, picking up three bonus points to his two. Both contributed a goal and assist in their victory over Huddersfield. Albrighton’s recent figures are good and worthy of note. He has six scoring weeks in his last ten, becoming a much more regular starter under Claude Puel. And all for £5.5 million.

Twat of the week – Christian Kabasele – -1 points

Soon to be renamed ‘Twatford of the week’ due to the frequency with which they win this award. It shows on Marco Silva’s face too. He knows. It was a slightly unfortunate own goal, rather than a scything challenge that did for Kabasele. Still, he went and did it in a week in which no-one conceded seven or snapped someone in two in the first half.

Goal of the week. Pedro Obiang. Two great goals in one match but this was the most unexpectedly spectacular. 2m15s

Manager of the week – Blakes11 – Steven Darling – 102 points

From out of nowhere Blakes11 finally get the hang of making transfers. In as much as they made one and chalked up the equal highest score of the year. In previous gameweeks they’d taken 64, 20, 16 and 12 point hits. I have no idea whether any of those were by accident or by design. The 20 point hit actually saw their overall league position rise. And they still haven’t played their wildcard. BLAKES11 – PLAY YOUR WILDCARD. They attempted the free hit in gmeweek 5 to no real avail. And yet – this week – one transfer – 102 points. But – have they done enough to put themselves in the box seat for the highest weekly score prize? Well, yes. Nashton Villa’s 102 point haul came in gameweek 12. In which they scored four goals. Blakes11 beat that by scoring an amazing seven goals. And looking at the team they have assembled at the moment, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them climbing higher than the 44th place in which they find themselves at the moment. Providing they don’t have any more transfer meltdowns.

Player of the week – Aaron Mooy – 15 points

It’s another bumper week for Huddersfield – who are becoming very, very difficult to predict. They’re either thumping teams – or getting thumped. This week Watford were on the receiving end – picking up their customary red card and twat award (see below). Mooy is their top scorer and his price has fluctuated in accordance with his form. Their current good(ish) run has seen them climb back into mid table safety. Mooy comes in currently at £5.3 million, so could definitely be worth a punt, particularly with him being fairly consistently on set piece and penalty duty.

Bargain of the week – Laurent Depoitre – 13 points

Lumbered his way to a goal and two assists which should secure his the centre forward place for another week. He and Steve Mounie have been vying for the position and taking it in turns to look unplayable one week, whilst being invisible the next.

Twat of the week – Troy Deeney – -2 points

Invariably a Watford player losing his head. Troy Deeney’s been a washed up fantasy asset for a season or two now. As long as Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucoure keep on playing their way through the season instead of kicking lumps out of the opposition, Watford may stay up and may retain some fantasy worth.

Goal of the week – Mesut Ozil. 1m27s.
