The Craggy Islanders are our champions. By three points. I think that might be our closest finish yet. It was looking at one point, before the bonuses came in, that it might end up being a tie. I’m glad it wasn’t. I didn’t fancy the season long count back of goals scored. The Islanders won the last weekly battle 85 to 80 – the five point gap enough to take over at the top. WHMA played the All Out Attack, but to no avail. It wouldn’t have made a difference had they not bothered.

The Islanders started this season as our first manager of the week and then spent most of the next three months coming and going, in and out of the top 10. They hit a century in gameweek 14 climbing back to the summit. From that moment on they never left the top four, clinging on to first for six weeks between 16 and 22, and then next appearing in top spot when it really mattered – gameweek 38.

Meaning When Harry Met Alli must settle for second place for the second successive year. They were always in the mix. They never dropped out of the top 10 but for one week in December. From the turn of the year they took up residence in the top four and never fell below that. They were at the head of the group of teams trying to peg back Aquamar through the last third of the season, managing to take the lead in gameweek 37. Perhaps their decision to play their bench boost a week earlier than The Islanders cost them the title. We’ll never know.

And we’ll never know whether Aquamar’s itchy transfer finger cost them the top prize. Sitting in the top 3,000 worldwide in gameweek 32 with an 80 point lead over their nearest Buckets challenger, they went on a complete transfer bender making 19 in the last six weeks. Not having Harry Kane to play out the final two weeks, however, was probably the biggest handicap. It was a season of what might have been for Aquamar, also finishing runners-up in the Buckets Cup to Shoelace Untied.

Fourth place was a battle to the death with five or so teams continuously changing places over the closing two months of the season. Kebab Eaters United eventually pipped Edgbaston to the last cash prize. Edgbaston finished fifth last year too, but do take home the prize for the May manager of the month and the highest weekly score – a record breaking 181 points in gameweek 37.

Shoelace ploughed all of their energy into winning the cup, taking 76 points worth of hits across three gameweeks in order to outscore their opponents. Curiously, they also climbed the table, proving that taking hits doesn’t necessarily always cost you points. As long as you bring in the right players. It’s not a tactic I’d suggest playing across an entire season.

Rico United were double month winners and Yeboah’s Right Foot won manager of the week more than anyone else, coming out on top four times. That’s probably pretty impressive in a 53 team league. The record still stands at seven in a 26 team league.

Alexis Sanchez topped the player charts by some distance, although had Harry Kane played out a full season, it’s probable he’d have collected more points. He finished joint third with Eden Hazard, and just behind Dele Alli, but missed eight games with injury. Tom Heaton was the top goalkeeper. He kept ten clean sheets, and headed both the saves made and bonus points tables to finish ahead of Hugo Lloris and Thibault Courtois. The Chelsea defence ruled. No-one got close to Cahill, Alonso and Azpilicueta. Kane, Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku topped the bonus charts, all scoring 33. Marcos Alonso’s value rose the most over the course of the season, £0.9 million to £6.9 million.

Picking a bargain buy of the season hasn’t been as easy as last year when we had so many Leicester players to choose from. West Brom’s second top scorer, Gareth McAuley, deserves a mention. The 804 year old defender started as a £4.5 million back up in many teams but probably lasted the distance thanks to his steady return of goals and clean sheets – up until the point that West Brom reached 40 points and they got the holiday brochures out. Josh King’s second half of the season was as prolific as any of the elite forward players in the league. Only Sanchez and Alli scored more from midfield. From gameweek 20 onwards he contributed in 13 of the 18 games he played in. Expect a position change and starting price rise for next season.

See you then.

Still no team seems capable of catching Aquamar. They’ve been on the rise in the international game too, jumping to 2,602nd in the world. More often than not they’re outscoring most of the Buckets chasing pack, and always maintaining that lead, which currently stands at 80 points. That’s the highest it’s been. They’re chip-less and now wildcard-less – but has playing them early built up an unassailable lead?

Poor When Harry Met Alli, The Craggy Islanders, Biscuitmen, Hedgehog’s and Kebab Eaters have been staring at the back of Aquamar’s head for most of the season. They continue to score above average every week without making any real inroads, and now they’ve got the relentless rise of teams like Rico United and Joey Bosa coming up behind them to contend with. Rico and Joey were barely top 20 at the turn of the year, but now sit in 6th and 8th respectively. All of those in contention for a league prize, or with hopes of catching the leaders hold some kind of chip or have their remaining wildcard. With two (potentially three) more double gameweeks to cram into the final six, their could be more twists and turns.

Aquamar benefited from Palace’s surprise thumping of Arsenal last night. Mamadou Sakho was promoted from the bench to join Wilfried Zaha in their XI to add 17 points. Conversely, Jeff Lamp’s Porsche, despite outscoring everybody else and breaking the 100 point barrier, would have been hoping for a bit more from Alexis Sanchez.  Before last night’s match they were sat on 98 points with hopes of catching the highest weekly score total. Only 2 points were added and it leaves most of us questioning Sanchez’s attitude and his worth (and that of the entire Arsenal squad) in these crunch closing weeks of the season.

However, you couldn’t have named a better player than Heung-Min Son as your captain this week, and that’s what JLP did. These are the kind of ballsy decisions that win you fantasy prizes, so lets see if they can follow that up with a challenge for the April Manager of the month award.

 

Player of the week – Heung-Min Son – 19 points. Can he hold onto his place now that Harry Kane is back?

Bargain of the week – Phil Jagielka – 12 points. Second successive double figure score.

Donkey of the week – Sebastian Larsson – -2 points. Never a sending off

Goal of the week – Dele Alli. Just needs to cut out those shit celebrations.

There wasn’t a preview. I didn’t have time. And I’m glad of the week off for the 3rd round of the cup. Everybody should have their second wildcards activated and you’ll have noticed the Africans have gone. That is…Sadio Mane has gone.

This gameweek’s highest scorers are Pudding And Pie. Yes…Pudding and Pie. And they’re up to the heady heights of 46th position – a season high. And they did it with three lame ducks on the bench. Ibrahimovic bagged his regular double figure score as captain. Robert Snodgrass and Romelu Lukaku added their own double figure totals and Allen Nyom and Ben Mee scored 15 points between them at the back.

They also had Dele Alli in their midfield. The Spurs man was one of three players to reach 15 points along with Ryan Shawcross, Olivier Giroud and Leighton Baines. Shawcross wins the official player of the week award, but Alli’s double against Chelsea to end their winning run was perhaps the real performance of the gameweek. He’s picked up 53 points over the Christmas period, scoring seven goals in the last four games. He’s the form leader and has joined that never ending list of midfielders we can’t do without.

 

Player of the week – Ryan Shawcross – 15 points. Good old goal and clean sheet combo.

Bargain of the week – Ryan Fraser – 13 points. On 47 points from three starts.

Donkey of the week – Fernandinho – -2 points. His third sending off in six games.

Goal of the week – Lucas Perez.

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.

There’s your end of season table. FC Caligula are champions. Congratulations to them. Not only that – they’re also cup winners. They’re the first team to achieve a Buckets league and cup double. Add to that the fact that they’re a Leicester fan, and you might be forgiven for wanting to smash their face in. Much like Leicester, they started well, and basically got better. They never sank lower than eight place, rising to the summit in week 24 and staying there for all but one other week. In total they collect £405 in prize money, the highest in Buckets history.

At the half way point, The Kolarov Mane were 21st and had been rattling around in mid table for most of the first half of the season. Their rise began around gameweek 23 when they jumped 10 places from 14th to 4th. After a slight dip into the lower reaches of the top 10, they climbed gradually again up until week 34 when they hit 190 points in the first double gameweek and cemented their place in among the challengers for the league. That 190 points is another record. No team has scored more than that in one week in Buckets history. It’ll take some beating. If anything, it was their below average performance in double gameweek 37 that put them just out of reach of a title challenge, although they bounced back to post the second highest score of the last gameweek to clinch second.

Your Ad Here were third. The former cup winners went one place higher than their previous best performance, but will be disappointed not to have finished second – a position which they had held since gameweek 26. They’d also briefly held top spot in gameweek 25. A bad week 38, which saw only ten of their players take the field (in their flip flops) saw them give way to The Kolarov Mane.

Completing the top four are Shoelace, finishing in the prize money spots for the first time. It was another late charge following a slow start and a sluggish middle period. They were outside the top ten as recently as gameweek 29 and only appeared in the top four for the first time last week.

An honourable mention must go to the Golden Boys who eventually finished 8th. They never sank any lower than that position all season having taken the lead in gameweek 10 and holding it for 14 weeks. Unfortunately they go away empty handed having not managed to pinch a monthly prize. In fact they only won one weekly prize despite their early season dominance.

The manager of the week record remains intact – Romeo’s bagged seven two seasons ago. Walking With Memphis and SS3 FC both scooped three weekly awards, with a host of other teams managing a double. We had ten different managers of the month this season. I’m pretty sure we’ve always had one team managing a double or treble of manager awards – but then we’ve never had a 44 team league before.

In the real world Leicester (who else) dominated the player and team awards. They picked up eight player of the week awards across the two categories and only one donkey. Mahrez and Vardy finished first and second in the overall scoring charts. The highest scoring goalkeeper and defender both came from Arsenal – Petr Cech and Hector Bellerin. The Gunners had two other defensive players in the team of the season (jump to the bottom of this page).

Sergio Aguero scored the most single weekly points – 26 in gameweek 34. Several teams triple captained him to a 78 point total. That’s the new highest single gameweek score in Buckets history. Aguero also managed 25 points in gameweek eight, a total which was matched by Georginio Wijnaldum the following week.

Southampton scored seven player of the week awards, with both Manchester City and Sunderland managing six. No one player dominated the player awards. Kane, Aguero, Mahrez, Kevin De Bruyne and the mighty Andy King all picked up two weekly awards.

Chelsea led the way in the donkey race with five – two each for Thibaut Courtois and John Terry. Kyle Naughton was the only player to sink to -4, somewhat unluckily, as he eventually had his red card rescinded.

Leicester also hit six contenders for goal of the season – three each from Vardy and Mahrez. Liverpool equaled that, including two each from Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge. Dele Alli and Andros Townsend also appeared on the goal of the week list twice. Manchester United, incidentally, had no goal of the season contenders. Everyone will have their own favourite. I’ve got a soft spot for the Mahrez goals against Chelsea and Manchester City. The’re still trying to untwist Cesar Azpilicueta. Vardy’s record breaking goal was typical Vardy, but the pass from Christian Fuchs made it a million times better than it first appeared. The Vardy volley against Liverpool and the Alli volley against Palace seem to be the favourites of the pundits, but my choice is Cuco Martina’s bender for Southampton against Arsenal. There’s an angle from behind the strike where you get the full on Roberto Carlos-ness of it. It’s going out for a throw, then it’s in the net. And he can’t fucking believe it can he?
