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 – 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 – Nashton Villa – Jaime Nash – 102 points

Seven clean sheets and 30 goals set up plenty of high scoring opportunities this week and for the first time this season the century barrier was broken. As a result a new highest weekly score target has been set. An honourable mention must go to Greenyteamy who leap 11 places into the top five with a whopping 100 point return. Last week’s highest scorers missed out on two consecutive manager of the week awards by two points. They are however way out in front in the chase for the November manager of the month. The only team with a chance of catching them appear to be this week’s highest scorers, Nashton Villa. Nashton’s 102 points saw them jump 16 places to 16th overall. Both placed the armband on Mohamed Salah – Nashton threw their triple captain chip at the Egyptian. That extra 16 points was the difference as Greeny’s had more double figure scorers, including our player of the week and two of the the top three gameweek attackers.

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 18 points

It was another week of frustration for those opting for Harry Kane as captain, and to a degree, Romelu Lukaku. And it was a week of some notable point scoring comebacks that are sure to throw spanners in the works and give selection headaches for the weeks to come. Paul Pogba and Philippe Coutinho made scoring returns from injury – and it might be worth keeping an eye on Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Most ominous is Eden Hazard’s player of the week contribution. It becomes his third point-scoring performance of the last four games. Also, Chelsea’s fixtures, following a tricky trip to Anfield this weekend, hit a purple patch all the way through to the new year. Definitely one to watch.

Bargain of the week – Callum Wilson – 17 points

Another gradual comeback crowned by a match-winning performance and only the third Premier League hat trick of the season. Callum Wilson made a blistering start to his Premier League career only for a serious injury to stop him in his tracks – and that included a hat trick against West Ham in the early part of the 2015/16 season. So don’t rush out to buy him just yet. He could lose a leg next weekend.

Twat of the week – Simon Francis – -2 points

A second successive clean sheet for Bournemouth, but one that won’t be enjoyed by those that saw an opportunity to bring in this particular defensive asset. The fact they went on to score two more goals after the dismissal might make it worse. He really didn’t need to put himself in that position after all.

Goal of the week – Kevin De Bruyne. City’s 5th goal of the week winner.

Manager of the week – Hornets – 80 points

Straight to the top of the league and in pole position for the first manager of the month prize go league newcomers, Hornets. Player of the week, Marcos Alonso, top scored, with added double figure totals courtesy of our goal of the week scorer, Aaron Mooy, and Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. Pogba, along with Henrik Mkhitaryan, are top of the midfielder points, and at long last making those transfer fees seem worthwhile. Lukaku, meanwhile, isn’t wasting any time. He’s the most selected and was the most captained this gameweek.

Player of the week – Marcos Alonso – 16 points

Hopefully there weren’t too many kneejerk reactions to Cheslea’s poor showing against Burnley last week. Alonso has very quickly reminded us why he’s the most expensive defender, by basically playing as an attacker, and curling in a trademark beauty of a free kick. Harry Kane got booked again. How many kneejerk reactions will there be to his crap start? Surely next week against Burnley is where he finally makes his mark on the season?

Bargain of the week – Harry Maguire – 15 points

Leicester look far more capable of scoring and keeping clean sheets already than at any point last season. Scoring and keeping a clean sheet is exactly what Maguire did. He seems to have cemented his starting berth although three tough fixtures in the next four await.

Twat of the week – Kyle Walker – -2 points

And if you did kneejerk away from the Chelsea defence, lets hope you didn’t plump for Kyle Walker.

Goal of the week – Aaron Mooy

Manager of the week –  Fun Lovren Criminals – 88 points.

It happens so often that the last game of the weekend saves a gameweek. Romelu Lukaku’s 13 point haul, doubled to 26 with the armband, was the score that took Fun Lovren Criminals to the Buckets summit for week one and win them the first manager of the week accolade. Lukaku and Harry Kane vied for top ownership and top captain choice for this opening round of fixtures. Those opting for the United forward reaped the rewards. Kane lovers had the added disappointment of seeing their man booked, and thus picking up a measly two points as skipper. Impressive Premier League club debuts from Mohamed Salah, Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac also contributed to FLC’s early lead, and the performance of all of those four players in particular bodes well for their fantasy careers.

Player of the week – Ahmed Hegazi – 15 points.

Best debut of the lot came from West Brom’s new Egyptian centre back, Ahmed Hegazi. Tony Pulis should just play a 1-10-0-0 and be done with it. No need for attackers. Don’t be surprised if a defender ends up as West Brom’s top scorer this season. Keep 13 clean sheets, score five or six goals, get to 40 points in March, start planning your holidays. Easy.

Bargain of the week – Sam Vokes – 13 points.                                                               Twat of the week – Gary Cahill – -3 points

Week one is never without it’s surprise results. Burnley sold their main striker the evening before. Their away record last season was shocking. Chelsea, the Champions, only lost twice at home last season, kept 16 clean sheets and beat their opponents 3-0 almost a year ago. When it goes tits up in week one it feels so much worse than at any other time of the season, probably because you’ve been aching over your selection since mid July. But no-one could have seen this coming. Although, as much as I don’t see Sam Vokes clogging up too many forward lines, I also don’t see too many Chelsea defenders in any of our squads either. Are they priced too highly? Shoelace however, who are propping us all up, were unfortunate enough to plump for Cahill. But for Lukaku, and a scoring start from Sergio Aguero, mid to low priced strikers came out on top. As well as Vokes, honorable mentions should go to Steve Mounie and some bloke called Wayne Rooney.

Goal of the week – Wayne Rooney.

Lets start with a cracking header – 1m06s.
