Very brief this week due to the quick turnaround between gameweeks. Ciderheads are the weekly winners. Retaining Kane the key and a good performance from Charlie Daniels against hapless Swansea. It’s always worth looking at who they’re playing for some guaranteed goal points. The Islanders remain top, but again allowed teams below to claw back a few points. They were involved in a very close run thing for the manager of the month prize. That final table looks like this…

*Your Ad Here* became the fourth team to win their second weekly award amassing 77 points and maintaining their position in the top five. Upper Bullens and RayCrawfordsCrackers sandwich *YAH* on the leaderboard in fourth and sixth respectively posting totals of 75. RayCrawfordsCrackers were the biggest movers jumping seven places from thirteenth into a tightly packed lower half of the top 10. Only five points separate 10th and 6th. After Saturday’s games Neil Madrid had leapt further up the league into fourth, but were pegged back by the those three 70+ scorers and Sportingabiggerwig and Ciderheads who all scored heavily following the Sunday matches. *Your Ad Here* had four players playing in Sunday’s games, and they added 43 points to their total, outscoring the seven players who took to the field for them on Saturday. Upper Bullens had similar success with 37 points coming from Sundays games. The Crackers and Sporting had 28 points contributed from the final four games of the weekend.

Uriah’s still lead the way, but the gap at the top has now been cut to 15 points. They’re possibly suffering from a slight slowing down in the scoring of Southampton’s attackers, and a lack of either Sanchez and/or Aguero. One thing Uriah’s don’t have to worry about this season (so far) is their anti-Liverpool stance. No Liverpool player is currently anywhere near the top of the form tables.

Which leads us on to the players that are. Newcastle! It’s a clean sweep of player awards this week following their win at West Brom. Daryl Janmaat moves into the top 10 defenders with a 15 point haul, closely followed by our bargain of the week, Fabricio Coloccini, on 14 points. Ayoze Perez scored the goal of the weekend. Perez is the newest in a line of cheapo strikers outscoring the elite. He falls into the £4-5 million bracket too – for now. Three goals in three games from about six touches and as many bonus marks.

Charlie Austin shouldn’t go unmentioned. Other than Sergio Aguero, who appears to be keeping City afloat at the moment, Austin is the form striker in the league. He had the ball in the net three times on Saturday night against the Champions. Sadly, only one of them counted. That goal – his sixth of the season – his fourth in three games – helped QPR to a well deserved draw. Those labouring with off the boil strikers like Leonardo Ulloa and Steven Naismith or getting twicthy with a two game blank from Diafra Sakho and Saido Berahino might want to give Austin a punt.

Which other City players would you have in your squad at the moment? It is just Aguero. City’s form might be enough to tempt you away from the league’s top scorer, but it seems as long as he’s in the team, City (and your Bucketeers) have a chance. He’s drawn a blank in only three of their 11 league games. Similarly, and perhaps more impressive is Leighton Baines’ scoring power. Baines sits second behind Aguero and Sanchez in the overall points standings. It’s unusual for a defender to place above so many strikers and midfielders. Baines has either scored, assisted, kept a clean sheet or bonused in eight of the 11 games. He’s certainly justifying his price tag, unlike virtually every other elite defender.

We’ve got a mid month interval. Two weeks of bumming around not being bothered by internationals hoping Angel Di Maria gets injured so you can move him out and replace him with Alexis Sanchez safe in the knowledge you’re not going to lose out.

Player of the week – Daryl Janmaat – 15 points. Both assists and three bonus marks.

Bargain of the week – Fabricio Coloccini – 14 points. A goal and two of the bonus marks

Donkey of the week – Kyle Naughton – -2 points. Our first double donkey.

Goal of the week – Ayoze Perez. A cheeky flick and the other bonus mark.

Typical that I should be away during the week in which there were such massive shifts in position in the league table. To summarise, Neil Madrid and Hedgehog Corpse, 2nd and 5th last week, plummet to mid table, and are now closer to the bottom team than the top. Upper Bullens and Ciderheads both managed 76 points, but Bullens win the weekly award having scored five goals to Ciderheads’ two. Bullens have raced to the top of the league, and are in pole position for the September prize. Rip Roaring Reds lie in second in both the overall and September leagues. Sportingoffensivewig are somehow in 3rd, their highest ever position. All this with only six active outfield players this week. Jammy get. Lerighton Baines is now the highest scoring player with two sumptuous free kicks against West Ham. Neither free kick were as good as Wayne Rooney’s consolation against City. And no free kick bettered Sone Aluko’s winner against a complacent Newcastle.

Next week we’ll find out the September Manager of the Month. The form guide suggests one of the top three will snatch it, but given last week’s massive swing of points, anything’s possible. Here are the fixtures…

28 Sep 12:45 Tottenham v Chelsea
28 Sep 15:00 Aston Villa v Man City
28 Sep 15:00 Fulham v Cardiff City
28 Sep 15:00 Hull City v West Ham
28 Sep 15:00 Man Utd v West Brom
28 Sep 15:00 Southampton v Crystal Palace
28 Sep 17:30 Swansea v Arsenal
29 Sep 13:30 Stoke City v Norwich
29 Sep 16:00 Sunderland v Liverpool
30 Sep 20:00 Everton v Newcastle

Not much of a preview that, but I’m on holiday. Make do.

Player of the week – Leighton Baines – 16 points. Two gorgeous free kicks.

Bargain of the week – Robbie Brady – 12 points. Hull’s creative force.

Donkey of the week – David De Gea – 0 points. Didn’t even muster any saves of note.

Goal of the week – Sone Aluko. Side foot volleys look nice, even against your own team.
