Top of the league – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – Trev Reams – 429 points

Da battle for supremacy between Da Pitch and Perfidious continues with both cruising past da 400 point mark way ahead of anyone else, but it’s da former who have a slender one point advantage after outscoring their rivals this gameweek. Both sit in the top 10,000 overall and both lead the way in the battle for the September manager of the month.

However, both have wildcarded, as have Slabhead. Could someone from further back steal ahead and claim the September prize?

Manager of the week – Jaime Nash – Nashton Villa – 79 points

A welcome change in fortunes for last season’s runner up who has jumped almost a million places in the overall game. Disappointingly it only equates to three Buckets positions, but it’s a step in the right direction after having spent the opening weeks struggling to get over average scores and gaining no real boost from an early wildcard in gameweek 3. Villa took an 8 point hit for transfers and two of the three new boys returned 9 points – Joe Hart and James Maddison. Goals from Salah (c), Kane and Aguero, and clean sheets and bonuses from double-barreled full backs topped the total up nicely.

Player of the week – Joel Matip – Liverpool – 15 points

It wasn’t Ryan Fraser, the most transferred in player. He continued that curse by winding up on the end of a 4-0 thumping at the hands of the league’s bottom club. Thanks Ryan. After a few near misses a Liverpool player has finally found their place on the honours board. Matip completed a near clean sweep of defensive points. He was only missing the assist. And you can bag him for less than £5 million.

Bargain of the week – Ashley Barnes – Burnley – 12 points

Burnley finally have a win on the board and a second clean sheet to add to the one they picked up in gameweek 1. Their season appears to have started now the international break has passed and their European adventure has come to a premature end. A lot of their players suffered price drops through those opening weeks, Barnes being one of them. If their season is going to pick up, maybe he and one or two others will come on to our radar. It was his scoring prowess off the bench last season that eventually earned him more starts and he became a useful third striker to own.

Twat of the week – Wesley Hoedt – Southampton – -1 points

It probably should be a Cardiff player who are now shipping goals as we expected them to – four last week and five in this. Wesley Hoedt decided he’d score an own goal in a 3-0 defeat, which doesn’t do much for your fantasy cred.

Goal of the week – Joao Moutinho.

Manager of the week – Trev Reams – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – 91 points

Our leading rookie team finally have their name on the honour board hitting another 90+ score to narrow the lead at the top. There were two other 90+ teams this week, both of whom had Eden Hazard as captain. BDPA1 settled on Aguero as their skipper, but also picked up double figure returns from Hazard, Matt Doherty, David Silva and a cheeky substitution involving Pierre Hojbjerg coming in for Benjamin Mendy. That unexpected Mendy injury hit a lot of teams. By 5pm it didn’t matter. Most of us had the same sub waiting in the wings – Aaron Wan Bissaka – who was promoted from the bench with a lovely bonus filled 9 points.

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 20 points

Cue first selection headache of the season. Dropping Salah for Hazard? The Liverpool man isn’t exactly having a bad season, positioned as the sixth highest scoring midfielder, but he’s someway behind the Chelsea skipper. Affording both is possible, but probably at the expense of another elite player in better form. Liverpool have a tasty home fixture against Southampton up next whereas Chelsea must travel to West Ham – and then the two teams face each other. Neither team’s fixtures ease up necessarily after that, but Hazard’s form in comparison to Salah’s is way more impressive and we may even see a price drop if the current trend of abandoning the game’s most expensive player in favour of cheaper options continues.

Bargain of the week – Ryan Fraser – 18 points

This has been in the offing. Certain underlying stats have suggested Ryan Fraser would get in among the goals and assists after two blank weeks. In total it’s three goals and two assists in five games. This is already more than half way to bettering last season’s totals and Bournemouth’s current run of form and upcoming stretch of fixtures promises more. Only Sadio Mane and Marcos Alonso better him for bonus points as well this season.

Twat of the week – Wes Morgan – -3 points

There aren’t many Morgan owners out there I don’t think. Leicester have only kept one clean sheet so far this season and he didn’t play in that. He won’t be playing in the next game either, so no reason to hastily reject any other Leicetser defenders you may have.

Goal of the week – Wilfried Zaha

No vid?!

Manager of the week – Mrs Mcgoo – Laura Barrett – 90 points

Finishing totals in the 70s and 80s were commonplace this week with all but one of the double figure scorers coming from the ‘big 6’ sides. Mcgoo were the only team to creep into the 90s with a front three of Morata, Aguero and Lukaku ably backed up by a strong Huddersfield defensive presence. Mcgoo went for the Kane out/Aguero in transfer which kind of worked…but didn’t. Harry Kane shouldn’t be the bane of fantasy managers lives, but his insistence on scoring two or three every two or three weeks is proving to be, what’s technically known as, a ballache.

Player of the week – Alvaro Morata – 17 points

This hat trick tales him into second place overall in the player standings. It should be an exciting four, or maybe even five way race for the golden boot. Fitting three of them into your team seems to be an essential at the moment.

Bargain of the week – Oumar Niasse – 11 points

Probably seen as a last throw of the dice by his manager and came up with more for Everton in 35 minutes than most of the rest of the team had managed in six games. I doubt even the most die hard of fans had him anywhere near their fantasy team. Only 0.9% of players worldwide had accidentally picked him. He might be on from the start in their next match.

Twat of the week – Serge Aurier – -2 points

A sending off that almost cost his team three points. Spurs seem to be alternating the full backs a lot. This at least puts a stop to that for a week.

Goal of the week – Fabian Delph.

There aren’t many City players left who haven’t scored.

Gameweek 6 preview

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

We will crown our September manager of the month after this weekends games and it could literally be any one of us. Here’s the top half of the monthly table with When Harry Met Alli in pole position. They lead the way overall as well, so go into the gameweek as favourites to take the prize. Just to clarify – despite the fact that the first game of gameweek 7 takes place on the 30th September, the game month finishes officially after these fixtures. The scores for the month of October will start with the 30th September fixture between Everton and Crystal Palace.

Over a million managers – nearly a third of the worldwide game – have dispensed with Sergio Aguero over the last two weeks. He’s back. It’s a headache. It’s the easiest thing in the world to replace him – no-one is anywhere near as expensive as he is. Getting him back is trickier. You’ll probably have to make two transfers to re-accommodate him. Is there any point? Well, yes – given the way that City are dominating teams at the moment. And lets not forget the hat trick he scored in the Champions League tie against Borussia Monchengladbach.

So, what are the options? Stick with what you’ve got and hold out till you get two free transfers next week. It could work, although City play Swansea this week and the potential for goals is too great, is it not?

Use your wildcard if you’ve still got it. That would certainly allow you to make wholesale changes if they were needed and bring in the best possible combination of players around Aguero.

If you’ve one available transfer and you’re determined to re-instate him, who are you going to drop? Those carrying Nolito or Harry Kane have had the decision made easy for them. The Spaniard starts his own three match ban, whilst Kane is sidelined for two months with an ankle injury. Dropping any elite players runs a certain risk. Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez’s form probably rules them out. Similarly Romelu Lukaku, although the Everton striker is nursing an injury that forced him off before the end of last weekend’s victory over Middlesbrough. And dropping De Bruyne and Sterling is counterproductive.

Consider Eden Hazard, whose value rose to £10.3 million, but has dropped dramatically back to £10 million. All in the space of five gameweeks. Hazard appears to be the player who has suffered most at the hands of the imminent return of Aguero. And not just that, but the sparkling form of De Bruyne and Sterling. Despite an encouraging start, two games and a measly three points have seen managers react in a pretty unforgiving way. Maybe last season’s no-show is still fresh in the memory.

And don’t rule out dropping Zlatan. Manchester United’s form as a whole, rather than their star striker’s, is the discouraging factor. Three consecutive defeats and rumours of an unsettled camp doesn’t bode well. Ibrahimovic is also the closest in price to Aguero, and therefore the easiest to swap.

Upper Bullens are the team of the week this week. Their 69 points is the joint highest of the season, equalling the total set by Scotty2hotty in gameweek three. By virtue of scoring an impressive six goals, Bullens are now the team in pole position for the highest weekly score prize. Scotty2hotty only scored three in the week they posted their winning total. I’ve updated the Prize Money page to clarify what will happen in the event of any ties between teams. Have a read. Hopefully it makes sense. Let me know if I’ve written a load of nonsense

Bullens’ score also puts them at the top of the monthly leaderboard with one gameweek left to go…

1 Upper Bullens Andy Taylor 69 126
2 4 Lime Jellies Ian Williams 58 109
3 Edgbaston Micheal Dinneen 49 107
4 RICO UNITED JASON REACHER 52 102
5 Your Ad Here Matthew Hopkins 55 101
6 The Craggy Islanders Adrian Roche 60 101
7 FC Caligula Ajay Supeda 50 100
7 Pretty Schitty City Alex Michaluk 42 100

They’ve a healthy lead, but are being chased by league leaders, 4 Lime Jellies, who have posted 50+ scores in all but one of the six gameweeks so far. Bullens’ score was aided by an automatic substitution. Norwich captain Russell Martin came on for the unused Joe Gomez. He scored and secured a bonus point that earned nine more points in total. Martin is the league’s highest goal scoring defender with three. That’s as many as Newcastle. And he’ll need to keep scoring goals to earn himself his fantasy points as Norwich are one of four teams who are yet to keep a clean sheet. The others are Stoke, Sunderland and Leicester.

That’s fourth placed Leicester – the only unbeaten team left in the Premier League. This is where Riyad Mahrez gets his now weekly mention. Riyad Mahrez. There. Fifth double figure score in six weeks. First player past 50 points and far and away the most selected across the whole game.

And in the week in which Eden Hazard reached 750,000 transfers OUT, he goes an scores his first double figure score of the season. It was your typical Chelsea v Arsenal game. Cheating was passed off as “clever play”. Everyone tried their hardest to be the biggest prick. And Chelsea won.

 

Player of the week – Kurt Zouma – 15 points. The end of John Terry?

Bargain of the week – Odion Ighalo – 13 points. That’s 19 goals in 24 starts THIS YEAR. Only £5.1 million.

Donkey of the week – Gabriel – -3 points. How is this award not going to Diego Costa?

Goal of the week – Matt Ritchie. The chest control is almost as good as the volley.
