I give up.

Walking With Memphis score the most points this gameweek. It could have been so many more had they bench boosted – or picked Ashley Williams and Roberto Firmino ahead of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane. WWM would have accumulated 17 more points, and that would have placed them in the top 10.

It was largely a low scoring week. Tuesday’s games offered very little, so much so that most teams struggled to get out of the teens and twenties. Wednesday’s games promised so much more, but Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester City all lost, conceding six between them and scoring only two. And what looked like it could be a bad week for Leicester actually turned into a very good week. Despite drawing their game 2-2, anyone who saw their performance will know they should have won the game, scoring a hatful more, and still look the team most likely to go on and win the league. I think even Manchester United and West Ham came into contention. Certainly for the Champions League.

The preliminary round of the Cup saw no great shocks. The highest ranked team to tumble were Game of Throw Ins in 8th who lost out in a low scoring encounter to 23rd placed Edgbaston. Unluckiest team of the week has to be Panza Grande. They managed the 5th highest score of the gameweek with 49 points, but that was no match for Memphis’s week winning 62.

 

Player of the week – Steve Cook – 15 points. Possibly the most boringly named player in the league….

Bargain of the week – Andy King – 14 points. …on second thoughts.

Donkey of the week – Ryan Bennett – -1 points. Norwich take the lead in the donkey count.

Goal of the week – Fabio Borini. Stupid celebration though.

The league’s big movers this week are Gaalacticos. Their 83 points has moved them from 10th into third place, and only 16 points off the top spot. Neil Madrid have jumped into second with Naboombus holding onto first place. PSG, who find themselves in fourth, had dropped as far as tenth after Sunday’s games. Their Chelsea contingent came good last night picking up an extra 30 points and making sure they didn’t drop too far off the pace. The top eight are now only separated by 29 points.

Gaalactico’s were 17th at the end of November. Their turnaround has come courtesy of three 70+ scores in the last four gameweeks. This predictably sees them top of the monthly league, and by some distance.

They look as if they have the team to see them through the next two gameweeks and to the December manager of the month prize. Four players scored in double figures for them this week – player of the week, Charlie Austin, top assister, Cesc Fabregas, top bonus scorer, Stewart Downing (how did that happen?), and the newest member of the 100 point club, Eden Hazard.

Their lead may not be completely unassailable if some unexpected rotations are employed over the Christmas fixtures. Gael Clichy and Wilfried Bony were two of the most transferred in players before gameweek 17, only to be given a rest and left out of their starting XIs. This may guarantee their return next week, but it proves that no-one is safe from the chop.

We’ve three gameweeks between now and New Years Day. There’ll be score updates in between stuffing myself with mince pies. Good luck, and have a nice Christmas managers.

 

Player of the week – Charlie Austin – 17 points. Into double figures for goals.

Bargain of the week – Maya Yoshida – 15 points. A convincing return to clean sheets for Southampton.

Donkey of the week – Fabio Borini – -2 points. Lasted 18 minutes and kicked Cazorla in the tits.

Goal of the week – Ashley Barnes. Lamela’s was good – this was just better.

It’s Romeo’s again. This week a score of 68 points wins them the manager of the week award. It’s Romeo’s fifth weekly award. The record for the season, held by the Romeo’s boss, is six. With 13 more weeks to go there’s every chance that record will be beaten. In the event of Romeo’s winning the weekly award, that means that a bye into the first round proper of the cup has opened up to the team top of the league in gameweek 28. That’s probably going to be Romeo’s too….so the second place team looks likely to be handed that bye. Bear that in mind title chasers.

Romeo’s gained 21 of their 68 points from Southampton players. Southampton ran out 3-0 winners away to Fulham this week. Fulham are the league whipping boys at the moment. Whoever they play looks pretty much guaranteed of a victory, and a haul of fantasy points for their players. They were knocked out of the cup at home against Sheffield United last night, and face Manchester United next – at Old Trafford. At last – a gameweek when looking at United players might seem like a viable option.

Sunderland players dominate the highest weekly scores. Vito Mannone again. He has registered his fifth double figure total for the season. A season which only started for him in November. Fabio Borini, Jack Colback and Phil Bardsley picked up 11,12 and 10 points respectively, and Adam Johnson continues his magnificent run of form with another goal. Made all the more sweeter as it all came against Newcastle, who may as well not have bothered turning up.

Player of the week – Kevin Nolan – 16 points. Useless. Everyone booted Nolan out after his second sending off in a month.

Bargain of the week – Charlie Adam – 15 points. Sank United. Goal of the week winner too.

Donkey of the week – Leighton Baines – 1 point. Unusual plus score for this weeks worse player. The worst return for your money at 7.4 and 1 measly point.

Goal of the week – Charlie Adam.
