Manager of the week – Rico United – Jason Reacher – 65 points

Not a great week for scoring heavily with many of the top 10 stumbling and struggling to get over 40 points. Matt Doherty, as the most transferred in player, was bound to mess up and duly did, and he took the rest of the Wolves team down with him. Eden Hazard blanked and took a booking into the bargain and the uncertainty over the Liverpool line up ultimately didn’t mean that much with only a 1-0 win and a goal scored by the player vacating the most teams, Mo Salah. Rico made a charge from the pack and climbed toward the top 10 with a hard earned 65 points, given a last minute boost by a second consecutive brace off the bench by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He doesn’t need to start. Time to start squeezing Arsenal assets in to your team somehow.

There are lots of managers in with a chance of sneaking the October manager of the month, Rico included. Inevitably, Da Pitch are loitering. They extended their overall lead and now sit in the top 2,000 overall.

Player of the week – Jordan Pickford – Everton – 15 points

It was only Everton’s second clean sheet. Many managers were dispensing of Pickford and Everton defenders with prices starting to drop, so they were bound to make you regret that decision sooner or later. It maybe wasn’t much of a surprise that it came against Palace though. They’ve only found the net five times this season.

Bargain of the week – Fernandinho – Manchester City – 14 points

This tends to happen once a season. Fernandinho will not score or assist or collect top bonus marks again for another year. Do not replace Eden Hazard with Fernandinho.

Twat of the week – Callum Chambers – Fulham – -1 points

Fulham are leaky. So leaky they let Cardiff score four against them. His score could have been much worse because he was lucky to escape a second caution. Every Fulham defender bar two has suffered a price drop so far this season – and one of those two hasn’t played a game yet.

Goal of the week – Riyad Mahrez. 9 minutes in. Ah Oui!

Manager of the week – Game of Throw-Ins – Ryan Garoghan – 83 points

There’s still no catching Hornets no matter how hard the chasing pack try. Harry Kane was back in town and in as captain in most of the scores topping 60 points this week. Hornets posted the joint second highest score along with their new nearest challengers, Kompany & Co. Game of Throw-ins also picked Kane as captain and were one of the few with Nicolas Otamendi in their back line – the two top scoring players of the weekend.

Player of the week – Harry Kane – 16 points

He’ll have a week off next week. When I make him captain. He appears to be scoring in twos at the moment, and stats suggest he’s having having two more shots at goal per game than any of his rivals for the golden boot. A hat trick will probably come sooner rather than later. Is it worth just keeping him as captain and putting up with the lame weeks knowing he’ll more than make up for it in the next game?

Bargain of the week – Glenn Murray – 13 points

There are quite a few low priced strikers offering good returns at the moment. Could Glenn Murray add himself to that list? It looks like he might have forced himself to the front of the queue of the Brighton strikers and his team look like they’re finding their feet.

Twat of the week – Jose Holebas – -1 points

A two time twat. And both within 5 gameweeks. That, I think, is some kind of record. We’ve never had a three time twat in a season. He’s got plenty of time and unnecessary attitude to achieve that feat.

Goal of the week – Alexis Sanchez. At 5m45s.

It was one of those weekends where the form players and the big guns had a few days off. Only nine of us mustered a score over 50. The winning weekly total of 60 was the lowest of the season so far and was achieved by When Harry Met Alli, whose highest scores came from the more unlikley areas of their team. Clean sheets for Stoke and Watford and a first Premier League goal for Christian Fuchs contributed 21 of those points. Choosing Dimitri Payet as captain may not sound all that ridiculous, but the West Ham talisman’s slightly under the radar (but still pretty decent) start has been overshadowed somewhat by the overall form of his team. Although it’s two wins and two clean sheets on the spin now.

WHMA had slightly less bad luck with their elite bunch than everyone else it seems. Another blank for Aguero – that’s just two points in three weeks now – came in alongside an unexpected low return from Alexis Sanchez and just an assist from Romelu Lukaku. The weeks scoring is perhaps best summed up by the fact that despite Chelsea netting four times against Manchester United, Diego Costa was not among those goalscorers.

Player of the week – Xherdan Shaqiri – 15 points. Two lovely goals.

Bargain of the week – Scott Arfield – 12 points. Burnley strong at home

Donkey of the week – Eric Bailly – -1 points. Shit.

Goal of the week – Christian Fuchs. A close call with Shaqiri’s first.

Gameweek 9 preview

October 20, 2016

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

Two contrasting European results for the league’s top two teams could have a major influence on any potential squad changes for this week’s fixtures. Sergio Aguero was introduced 79 minutes in to Manchester City’s 4-0 defeat in Barcelona with Guardiola opting for a false number 9. Obviously it’s a move that didn’t pay off – and for the second consecutive match. Aguero started on the bench last week against Everton and ended up with a minus score. There may be an issue with an injury picked up on international duty, but it doesn’t feel cut and dried that he’ll be in the starting XI for the Sunday kick off against Southampton. If you’re outlaying £13 million on a player, you need them to start. Fantasy managers were quick to turn their attentions away from Eden Hazard and Zlatan Ibrahimovic when their form came into question. Could the unthinkable happen with a mass ditching of Aguero?

Over at Arsenal the big guns are starting no matter what. And scoring. What appeared to be a slow start is unquestionably up and running. The 6-0 victory over Ludogorets is their seventh on the spin in all competitions with a goal difference of 21-3. They possess five of the top eleven form players in the game – and this week they welcome Middlesbrough. Boro are among the teams with the lowest shots per game ratio hinting that there’ll probably be a big fat 0 in the away goals column. They’re defensively pretty stubborn but the floodgates could open if one of Sanchez, Ozil or Walcott nets early.

Another impressive roll call of scores, most of which were above average. The highest being the 86 points accumulated by Howayman which enabled them to jump nine places in the league. The most telling total came from Biscuitmen whose 80 points catapulted them to the top of the table from 10th position. At the end of gameweek 7 Biscuitmen were 60 points off the top and floating around in mid table. It’ll be of no surprise to learn that they’re also in pole position for the October award.

Last weeks leaders, Your Ad Here, dropped 6 places to seventh. It looks like they were forced into making multiple substitutions, having already wildcarded in gameweek 3, and the punt on replacing Aguero with Sturridge didn’t pay off. Both Howayman and Biscuitmen played their triple captain chip. Howayman gained 30 points giving the armband to Alexis Sanchez, whilst Biscuitmen picked up 36 points from Diego Costa.

Remarkably, for the second successive gameweek a player hit the 25 point mark. Georginio Wijnaldum scored four goals and picked up three inevitable bonus marks for Newcastle Against Norwich, matching Sergio Aguero’s total from gameweek 8. I think I’ve put everyone off having any Newcastle players in their team. No-one seemed to have him. Correct me if I’m wrong. It elevates him into the top four midfielders and to sixth in the overall player totals. I sense a value that was dropping may soon start to rise again.

 

Player of the week – Georginio Wijnaldum – 25 points. Erasing the memory of gameweek 8 (kind of).

Bargain of the week – Manuel Lanzini – 13 points. Under the radar, relatively cheap, always starting and consistently scoring.

Donkey of the week – Russell Martin – -1 points. It was always going to be a Norwich player.

Goal of the week – Aleksandar Mitrovic. Before his inevitable sending off next week.
