We’ve a new name on the roll of honour as The Mindless Morons top the weekly scores. Remarkably, six of their fifteen players didn’t even take to the field of play, but the nine that did amassed 66 points. They were one of the few to plump for Harry Kane as captain. Presumably the majority of us still think that this crazy run of goals is going to come to an end at some point. Again, he wasn’t top scorer for the week, but did manage his third consecutive double figure total.

It was a relatively low scoring gameweek, epitomised possibly by the fact that Chris Smalling ended up as the highest scoring player. Smalling strode off the bench after five minutes to replace Phil Jones and score with his first touch. He then bundled in another with his 50p head just before half time.

Dame N’Doye is our bargain buy of the week. It’s the first gameweek in which we’ve had a chance to look at some of the newly transferred in players. N’Doye scored and assisted to beat Villa, and ultimately cost Paul Lambert his job. Hull have been in desperate need of a goal scorer, so maybe N’Doye is that player. Of the new batch, only Jermain Defoe betters N’Doye’s statistics, although he has had a few more games in which to get up and running. It’s worth noting that the new Sunderland striker has scored two in his first four with an average of five points per game so far.

Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge are back in starting line ups and in among the points. Both contributed well to Arsenal and Liverpool’s victories on Tuesday night. Sturridge has picked up 14 points in 130 odd minutes of football since his return. Walcott’s figures are 18 points in 208 minutes. Both are gradually upping their gametime match by match, and injuries and lack of form among team mates could guarantee them more starting berths in the coming weeks. Although Mario did score the other night. But that should be of no concern to anyone who is playing this game properly.

 

Player of the week – Chris Smalling – 17 points. Probably the only time this will ever happen.

Bargain of the week – Dame N’Doye – 12 points. Another member for the cheap effective striker club?

Donkey of the week – Gareth Barry – -1 point. Making his seasonal appearance.

Goal of the week – Bobby Zamora. I don’t think he scuffed it.

Top scorers this week were our bottom team. Real Jorvik scored 66 points, yet still remain bottom of the table. All of Jorvik’s Chelsea players that have been hanging around since the early weeks finally came good. No fewer than 6 Chelsea players hit double figures. And every Chelsea player picked up either goal, assist, clean sheet or bonus marks. Time to move some Chelsea players back in perhaps? Time for the fans to stop singing the Di Matteo chant? David Luiz was employed in midfield. He scored and picked up some clean sheet marks. Could this be his new starting position for the rest of the season. It’s no surprise he’s been moved forward, given how gifted a footballer he is. He’s never struck me as being a defender. And he strikes as sweet a free kick as anyone in the league. See goal of the week. Cesar Azpilicueta is another Chelsea defender now worth considering. He’s started 8 of the last 9 games, bagged two assists, including one yesterday, and is priced at 5.6 million. Will there be a place in the team for John Terry when he returns from injury? Let’s hope not.

Chelsea players, however, don’t win our player of the week awards. Steven Gerrard is the highest scorer. Does anyone still have him? His first telling contribution of the season was a 17 point haul for a goal, clean sheet, assist and top bonus marks in Liverpool’s easy win against Fulham. Even Stewart Downing scored. That’s his first goal and first assist of the season. City were meant to annihilate Reading. They didn’t. And while we all sat with Tevez and/or Aguero has our captains, Gareth Barry went and scored their only goal in Mancini time. He’s your bargain.

  • Player of the week – Steven Gerrard – 17 points. A long while sonce he and Lampard scored in the same week.
  • Bargain of the week – Gareth Barry – 11 points. Probably your 11th choice City captain.
  • Donkey of the week – Matthew Lowton – -2 points. No surprises.
