Buckets Cup quarter finals

Are we on for another double winner in their debut season, much like FC Caligula did in 2015/2016? Hornets are still fighting on both fronts. Their score was the lowest of the quarter final winners this week, but still above the game average and most importantly, enough to see off Fun Lovren Criminals. They will play first time semi finalists, Game of Throw Ins, whilst another last four debutant, Atletico Chappers, will take on Emergency Gap Jumper. Should be an interesting final in Gameweek 31.

Manager of the week – The Vinegar Pissers – Paul Hawkins – 74 points

Three scores crept above 70 points this week, the highest of which was the 74 posted by The Vinegar Pissers. They’re the latest team to launch an assault on the Hornets domination, climbing up into third just behind Brexiter, who themselves, narrowed the gap by three. As well as picking up on another player of the week performance by Heung-Min Son, the Pissers also garnered 15 points from both of Brighton’s goalscorers in their victory over Arsenal. Glen Murray has six in eight games and only Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero have scored more since the turn of the year.

Player of the week – Heung-Min Son – 16 points

His second player of the week total and with that becomes only the third player this season to achieve the highest weekly score on more than one occasion. He had been on a run of blank weeks since his last double figure score and had started dropping out of teams. No goals and assists, the return to the team of Erik Lamela and the purchase of Lucas Moura obviously putting doubt about his return potential. That’ll probably reverse now and He’ll no doubt be a popular choice once Spurs’s double gameweek(s) roll round.

Bargain of the week – Ki Sung-Yeung – 13 points

A South Korean double at the top of the weekly player tables this week. Ki has played nearly every game under Swansea’s new manager and has obviously played an important part in their revival. His last run in the team under the previous manager yielded no returns at all. This time round he has two goals, two assists and two double figure totals in the last four games. And for under £5 million. There’ll be Swansea double gameweeks too.

Twat of the week – Ashley Williams – -2 points

Sam Allardyce solved whatever problems there were at Everton for all of about two games. They’re surprisingly leaky, especially away from home, and three red cards, the latest of which was dished out to their captain for the day, is the most for any team in the top flight. Apart from those bruising bastards over at Watford of course.

Goal of the week – Nemanja Matic.

Last goal in the last minute of the last game.

This weekend the average score across the whole game was only 34 points, so despite looking like a table full of low-ish scores in the 30’s and 40’s, the majority of Buckets managers actually performed quite well. Two totals jump out towards the top of the table. Hedgehog’s 66 points, based on the brave/stupid decision to make Papiss Cisse their captain, wins the manager of the week award and secures their bye into the first round proper of the Buckets Cup. RayCrawfordsCrackers couldn’t quite match that to notch their eighth weekly award, but their 60 points was more than enough to clinch them the February Manager of the Month prize.

4 Bermie Utd Glen Davies 45 214
5 Accrington Rudyard Ian Williams 49 214
6 Van Damme United P Hawkins 41 214

 

There’s no reason why a reduction in the amount of fixtures should lead to such a low scoring average, but with four of the eight games finishing 1-0, and only 15 goals scored, it was one of those weekends in which defences came out on top. Both of our 60+ scorers had Daryl Janmaat in their defence – a wise choice considering Newcastle were up against Villa this weekend. Janmaat assisted Cisse’s goal and is now the second highest assisting defender behind Leighton Baines. In fact, only seven other players can beat his total of seven assists, and he betters the totals of the likes of Ozil, Cazorla, Nasri and Silva. RCC’s had Jason Puncheon in their midfield – our highest scoring player of the week. Palace were the only team to score three this weekend, and Puncheon had a hand in all of them. Team mate Glen Murray is our bargain buy of the week, despite being sent off.

Check the Buckets Cup link for the cup draw. It’s about to happen….

 

Player of the week – Jason Puncheon – 14 points. Palace looking safer with every passing week.

Bargain of the week – Glen Murray – 9 points. Three in two and one week off.

Donkey of the week – Wes Brown – -2 points. It wouldn’t be a donkey ist without Wes Brown on it. Poor sod didn’t even do anything.

Goal of the week – Jordan Henderson. Narrowly beating Liverpool’s other goal from their defeat of City
