Top of the league – The Craggy Islanders – 2128 points

The three way battle for Buckets supremacy took another twist this week. The Islanders remain top, but theirs and Albions less than average totals opened the door for Da Pitch to creep back into real contention. The Islander’s wildcard was played with more than one eye on next weeks fixtures, but Brighton’s total failure as a double gameweek team this week let them and many others down. No goals scored and seven conceded is not what was wanted. Some managers fell even further into the trap and captained a Brighton defender. It’s a cruel irony that the best bet would have been to stick with those single gameweeking bloody Bournemouth players who hammered the first five past the hapless Seagulls defence. Take some consolation in the fact that Brighton defender Shane Duffy backed himself in his own fantasy side. Bizarrely, however, he also had Callum Wilson in his attack!

Manager of the week – King Raggg – Stephen Darling – 90 points

King Raggg accumulated 31 points from Bournemouth assets, as well as healthy contributions from captain Christian Eriksen and Raheem Sterling, to post an impressive 90 point total. It puts them top of the monthly league at the halfway stage. Not a single Brighton player in sight. A wise move.

Player of the week – Lucas Moura – Tottenham Hotspur – 21 points

Spurs players were popular among most managers and not just those on a wildcard ahead of next week’s double. Any team playing Huddersfield almost guarantees some return. Even before Dele Alli was ruled out, Lucas Moura should have come into contention for many more teams than he did, considering the likely rotation ahead of their European fixture in the midweek. Son was benched but nabbed a late assist much to the relief of many managers -and Christian Eriksen provided the same return in a 90 minute performance. This paved the way for Moura to provide a hat trick, top bonus and a load of hindsight.

Bargain of the week – Sean Morrison – 16 points

And in the end the best double gameweeker came from Cardiff. One point from the Burnley game was followed up with fifteen against Brighton. Its Morrison’s eighth clean sheet – Cardiff’s ninth overall. Brighton have kept six. Weren’t Cardiff the better bet for points in the first place?

Twat of the week – Troy Deeney – Watford – -2 points

Deeney was another popular choice on wildcard ahead of the double. He’ll play no further part in that. Watford will have to look to Andre Gray or Isaac Success to maintain their quest for the best of the rest. Some fantasy managers will be less enthused to make the same switch I imagine.

Goal of the week – Mohamed Salah. 1m08s

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.

Manager of the week – Kompany & Co – Dean Cripps – 79 points

It all hinged on having Sergio Aguero and making him captain this week. A lot of managers probably can’t afford to have both Kane and Aguero and the midfield they want. Kompany & Co have shoe horned both strikers in with a reduced midfield and this week it produced the highest weekly score. Such is the dominance of Kane over every other high priced striker in the game that Aguero doesn’t really get a look in. His worldwide ownership is half that of the Spurs man, yet he has a higher points per match ratio. With Gabriel Jesus injured, Aguero is guaranteed more match time and City’s run of fixtures look a hell of a lot easier than Spurs’ in the coming weeks. Maybe it’s time for a switch?

The Winnings R Mine, for one night only, completed their remarkable rise to the summit. Hornets took over again after Sunday’s match. And all of this with no Kane, no Salah, no Aguero, no Man City at all, a West Brom defender, a third choice keeper and £2 million in the bank. What a maverick. Unsurprisingly, they’re in with a chance of the January manager of the month prize. The table currently looks like this with one round of fixtures to go.

Player of the week – Victor Moses – 17 points

Chelsea’s defence have been ultra-reliable since gameweek 10 returning 10 clean sheets in 15 games. Marcos Alonso has been in among the goals and is somewhat of an indispensable fantasy asset if you can stomach forking out over £7 million on a defender. Victor Moses, much like last season, has been slightly behind Alonso in the scoring stakes, but finally got a double figure total on the board. It’s easy to balk at his price too, but consider that’s what you would have paid for him as a midfielder last season and he’s doing exactly the same job now. Still, none of us had him.

Bargain of the week – Federico Frenandez – 11 points

An unexpected win and clean sheet for Swansea against Liverpool. I’m pretty sure we were all expecting a nice total boost with the Monday night fixture. Whatever you were on after Sunday’s games, admit it, you were expecting another 20 or so points to be added by the end of Monday night. Fernandez’s assist to Mawson’s goal made it a good night for the Swansea defence all round. Lukasz Fabianski took the remaining bonus mark and sits third in the keeper table surpassing the 100 point mark at the same time as Ederson Moraes. The reason – he’s made over twice as many saves as the City keeper.

Twat of the week – Shane Duffy – -1 points

For being on the receiving end of a 4-0 hammering. Brighton haven’t won in a while, yet a smattering of 0-0 draws still makes their low priced defence worth considering. Duffy is one of only two Brighton players to have seen their value increase over the season and there’s a fairly friendly looking set of fixtures coming up.

Goal of the week – Alexandre Lacazette. 1m09s

Manager of the week – We Are Ayling – Paul Murray – 69 points

They were ailing. But not so much anymore, climbing six places and to within easy reach of mid table. I dare say there were some among us who’d grown tired of Harry Kane. A price drop reflected that. Yet, August is over. Ayling captained him and reaped the benefits of his two goal haul. Leroy Sane, in and out of the Man City team, added an unexpected 13 points with two sublime goals.

Player of the week – Pascal Gross – 18 points.

Brighton’s season is finally underway. Their first win largely down to their German attacking midfielder who could be a good bet for a regularly picked, semi-consistent, lower to mid-priced goal threat. But for games against Arsenal and Everton, six of the Seagulls next eight fixtures have potential for wins and points.

Bargain of the week – Jamal Lascelles – 15 points

Something’s up. A second successive week with a Newcastle defender among the highest scorers. Matching Ciaran Clark’s performance from the last gameweek, Lascelles scored, kept a clean sheet and bagged top bonus marks.

Twat of the week – Sadio Mane – -2 points

This three game ban should start a mad transfer scramble. Whilst possibly allowing a way back into the Liverpool team for Philippe Coutinho.

Goal of the week – Leroy Sane.
