We’re getting to the business end of the season. A mad dash to make the most of Manchester City’s double gameweek was complimented by a flurry of triple captaining and bench boosting. The jury is out on whether it’s been worth it. First of all, sacrifices had to be made to accommodate the inclusion of Aguero, Sterling, Sane and company, and with next week in mind, it was Chelsea, Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal’s big guns that took the hit. Be smug if you decided to see the back of Sanchez and/or Ibrahimovic. Wince a little if you decided to give Kane, Alli, Costa or Hazard the boot. In the case of the Chelsea and Spurs players, sticking instead of twisting would have been as beneficial.

Im sure most triple captainers would have been hopeful of surpassing the 100 point barrier. That’s what you want to happen. Of those that played the chip, all went with Sergio, who again, didn’t quite play up to his price tag. You’d have been mad to do so, but you’d have been better off triple captaining the Stoke defence. The fact that the highest weekly scorer didn’t play for either Manchester City or Stoke tells the same story. There were high scores out there – just not high enough. Our leading three teams – Aquamar, The Craggy Islanders and When Harry Met Alli all took the plunge. Hedgehog Corpse didn’t and ended up jumping into the top three thanks to no transfer hits and five double figure scorers, one of whom was Artur Boruc of all people.

One manager did sneak past 100. Hucking Fell were helped by the 27 points of a triple armbanded Aguero, but the double figure returns of Kane, Alli, Grant and Mane were probably more telling.

Shoelace Untied achieved the second highest score with 97 – a total which carried them through to the semi final of the cup. Shoelace were the most successful bench boosters of the week, earning double figure totals from Caballero and Pieters, as well as Aguero, Alli and Grant. They’ll play Jarvis FC in the semi finals, while Aquamar, who are still on for the league and cup double, will face Rico United.

 

Player of the week – Dusan Tadic – 16 points. Always has one good week a season – this was it.

Bargain of the week – Erik Pieters – 14 points. The bus was well and truly parked.

Donkey of the week – Andrew Surman – -2 points. Probably should have been Zlatan’s award.

Goal of the week – Harry Kane. Probably time to draft him in again.

Crazylegs are the top scorers this week, heading a clutch of teams that hit the high 70’s. Given that it looks like they came into the gameweek carrying five injured or doubtful players, their 79 point total is quite an achievement. The key was the transferring in of Harry Kane, and then making him captain. Kane scored 13 points (26 for Crazylegs) – a total that moves him to the top of the form charts. It’s eight goals in seven games for Kane – and it’s seven in seven for Romelu Lukaku (second in the form charts). Most of the teams posting 70+ scores had one or both of them in their line ups. Crazylegs didn’t have Lukaku, but did have player of the week, Ross Barkley. Everton players have won four player of the week awards – two more than any other team – and dominate the attacking form charts, having scored 11 goals in their last three games.

It’s a great week for Leicester City. It might be the best weekend in their history, not to undermine their League cup successes of fairly recent years. Teams like Leicester might get a week or two at the top of the league in August. The fact that they’ve climbed to the summit in November is extraordinary. Two Leicester fans sit in the top three of the Buckets League too. It’s no coincidence. Both PSC and Caligula’s blind faith in Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy has paid dividends, and then some. They’ve been in the starting line up of both teams from the start. It appears PSC have made one or the other captain almost every week as well. They’re the two highest scoring players in the game, and it’s very likely that one of them will be the first to pass the 100 point barrier. If they were both to do it next weekend against Manchester United it would probably eclipse this weekend’s achievement. As well as the team climbing to the top of the league, Jamie Vardy must get his obligatory weekly mention, having equaled the Premier League consecutive game scoring record. How many more weeks can it continue? He does look capable of scoring against anyone at the moment.

 

Player of the week – Ross Barkley – 19 points. Following in the footsteps of Lukaku, Naismith and Kone.

Bargain of the week – Erik Pieters – 12 points. Added assist points to the now almost obligatory Stoke clean sheet. It’s five shut-outs in the last six.

Donkey of the week – Eliaquim Mangala – -2 points. Another bad week for City.

Goal of the week – James Morrison. A better goal than it was given credit for at the weekend I think.
