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…

Congratulations to Cooksters who pipped INIT and Yeboah’s to top spot by one point.

 

Player of the week – Andre Gray – 17 points. Hat trick.

Bargain of the week – Ashley Banes – 11 points. The other goal.

Donkey of the week – Virgil Van Dijk – -2 points. Rounding off a bad Chrimbo for Southampton.

Goal of the week – Olivier Giroud.

Joey Bosa lead the way this week with an impressive-for-the-post-Christmas-fixtures type score of 96 points. They almost produced a full house, and were potentially on for the highest weekly score of the season until Jose Fonte and Jan Vertonghen let the side down. They managed only a solitary point between them in the final fixture of the gameweek. Still, 96 points is enough to see Joey climb eight places into the top 20.

They, and most other managers with him in their squad, went with possibly the most obvious captain choice of the season. Zlatan didn’t disappoint, adding 30 points with the armband. That captain choice appeared to be the difference between those managers scoring up in the 60s and 70s and those struggling in the 30s and 40s.

Neither of our leading pair made that choice and the gap at the top has been closed as a result. The Craggy Islanders and Yeboah’s Right Foot managed only 52 and 44 respectively. Every other team in the top 15 outscored them both. Aquamar in particular, with 86 points, hauled Yeboah’s back to within one point. Aquamar have also put themselves in contention for the December manager of the month, along with Cooksters, who race to the top of the monthly pile, last years champs, FC Caligula, and one or two others bubbling under…

Player of the week – Dele Alli – 15 points. Just as managers were beginning to drop him, he gets 26 points in two weeks.

Bargain of the week – Joel Robles – 12 points. A goalie assist.

Donkey of the week – Nathan Redmond – -2 points. Harshly sent off.

Goal of the week – Pedro. Mkhitaryan’s was offside.

Friday’s preview highlighted the rising stock of the Chelsea team and I don’t know why I didn’t take my own advice. Their fifth consecutive clean sheet and their fifth consecutive victory. They were the only team to keep a clean sheet this weekend. Only 11 defenders collected anything but their appearance points and four of them play for Chelsea. Eden Hazard scored his fifth goal in four games and registered the highest score of the week. His overall performance merited much more than the 19 points he achieved. He’s an absolutely essential buy at the moment.

So, it’s just typical that a two week international break should come along. Although it does give you plenty of time to figure out exactly how to wedge him into your team. But with each passing day there’s the danger that his value will edge higher and higher. It had already jumped from £9.8 to £10 million over the two gameweeks before the Everton game. There’s every chance it’ll increase by the same amount, or maybe more, come the gameweek 12 deadline.  And the same goes for absolutely everybody else in the Chelsea starting XI at the moment from Courtois to Costa.

No less impressive were Liverpool, hammering six past Watford. Their front four all returned double figure scores. It was Philippe Coutinho’s fourth – a feat only matched by Hazard and Alexis Sanchez. Mane, Lallana and Firmino have all managed three each. They occupy four of the top twelve scorers overall – four of the top eight midfielders. If you’ve still got a wildcard, gameweek 12 looks like a perfect opportunity to play it. At whose expense might be better looked at in the preview in a fortnights time. A few injuries to Arsenal, Spurs and City players over the international break will make that decision a bit easier. Here’s hoping.

Racing Club Skegness were far and away our highest scorers of the week with 87 points. There were only two other managers in the 70’s. Greenyteamy opted for Firmino as captain. He contributed 30 of their 77 points. Cooksters 74 points came with a 38 point contribution from Hazard as captain. Skegness also went with Hazard, but also benefited from Coutinho’s contribution, a resurgence from Wayne Rooney on his recall to the Manchester United squad and Sam Vokes’ 11 point return, which puts him at the top of the budget striker picks. His current form is bettered only by that of Costa and Romelu Lukaku.

 

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 19 points. Goal of the week too.

Bargain of the week – Robert Snodgrass – 14 points. Back with immediate effect.

Donkey of the week – Jose Holebas – -2 points. A lot of managers won’t be happy with him – a form budget defender in a lot of teams. Picked up a ban too.

Goal of the week – Eden Hazard. His second goal from a slightly odd angle.

Gameweek 10 preview

October 28, 2016

Sunderland v Arsenal
Man Utd v Burnley
Middlesbrough v Bournemouth
Spurs vLeicester
Watford v Hull
West Brom v Man City
Crystal Palace v Liverpool
Everton v West Ham
Southampton v Chelsea
Stoke v Swansea

Just when you thought it was time to abandon all hope in Manchester United you realise they’ve a home fixture against Burnley this weekend, and that comes off the back of a victory over Manchester City in the midweek League Cup game. A game in which they kept a clean sheet and prevented City from having a single shot on goal. One defender you can discard once and for all is Eric Bailly, who not only got himself booked in the process of shipping four to Chelsea last weekend, but also managed to get himself crocked. He’ll be out for two months.

United are a better bet for a positive result than their neighbours at the moment. City haven’t won in six games in all competitions. Their ‘form’ player is Claudio Bravo who has an average score of five points in six games. Even that’s a bit of a misnomer, as it’s purely from the penalty save and subsequent top bonus score in the defeat at Tottenham. Most of the rest of the City regulars aren’t even averaging their appearance points.

Hull and Sunderland are losing games. They’re conceding goals – with only one clean sheet between them – and struggling to score. Hull have lost their main creator and goal threat, Robert Snodgrass, to injury. They face Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday, who must offer good differential options with Jose Holebas and Troy Deeney the most tempting choices. Arsenal visit Sunderland who are yet to keep a clean sheet or win a league game. It’d be a major surprise if they kept their first shut-out against the league’s second top scorers. Though, we probably felt that way last weekend ahead of Middlesbrough’s visit to the Emirates.

It’s the deciding week for the October manager of the month and the table looks like this…

Yeboah’s Right Foot are the monthly leaders, winning two manager of the week awards in the process. They lead the way and are favourites for the prize, although maybe keep an eye on Cooksters who are the highest climbers of the chasing pack jumping 12 places overall since the start of the month.
