Buckets Cup 1st round

Most of the biggest scoring teams taking part in this round of the cup found their way through to the next round. This week saw the second highest average gameweek score across the whole game, so 80’s, 90’s and some 100+ totals were always going to be needed to help teams progress. Spare a thought for Iamgroot, who scored 80, but were still knocked out.  They would have been the lowest placed team left in the competition. Title challengers, Brexiter City were able to progress with 69 points. The next round has drawn Brexiter together with league leaders Hornets in an intriguing (cliche) top of the table clash.

Manager of the week – Upper Bullens – Andy Taylor – 111 points

We had three 100+ scores this week including the second highest gameweek score of the season. Bullens’ 111 points is also their second manager of the week award. They’ve been hard to come by this season with Greenyteamy the only other team to achieve a double weekly nod. It makes you wonder how they’re still languishing in 32nd place.

Of course this and the other century scores were achieved with the help of Manchester City’s five goal haul aganst Leicester which saw Sergio Aguero notch a long overdue four goal blitz. The potential is always there – he normally gets one in a season. Bullens captained him and picked up another 20 points from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling to add to Aguero’s 42. There was an inevitable double figure contribution from Mohamed Salah and a slightly less expected one from Oumar Niasse, who seems to have worked his way to the front of the pecking order in Everton’s attack again. Kebab Eaters and To Elland Back also hit centuries, both captaining Aguero, and with help from the likes of Roberto Firmino, Ben Davies and penalty demon, Luca Milovejovic.

Hornets are back on top after a week away. For one night only, after Saturday’s games, Gotta Light had found their way to the number one spot, climbing up from 7th. Again proving how congested it is. It’s still anyone’s title.

Player of the week – Sergio Aguero – 21 points

Aaron Ramsey equalled the highest weekly player score last week – a record held by Sergio Aguero since September. That record stood at 20 points. Ramsey’s time at the (joint) top lasted a week. Sergio wanted the accolade all to himself. Four goals and all the bonus marks gets you 21 points.

Bargain of the week – Steve Mounie – 15 points

I predicted in gameweek 15 that Steve Mounie would score big again in GW31. Not a bad shout – I was only four gameweeks out. His third double figure total of the season and just his fifth goal came 11 weeks since his last. It would have been four points more had he not cruelly been robbed by a dubious decision to award an own goal to Steve Cook.

Twat of the week – Harry Maguire – -1 points

It had to be one of those on the receiving end of the Manchester City hammering. Maguire gets it as the most popular and most expensive route into the Leicester back four. The booking didn’t help either. It’s harsh on Harry as we all know the real twat of the week was Chris Smalling, who took a dive in his own half which resulted in Newcastle’s winning goal and snuffed out Manchester United’s faint title challenge. Well done Chris.

Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero (4th goal).  

You never know – he might get a player of the season nomination this season (he’s never had one!). 2m30s.

Manager of the week – Greenyteamy – Adam Greenwood – 81 points

Greenyteamy’s rise continues. They jumped on Eden Hazard’s return to the Chelsea line up back in gameweek 7. In the seven weeks since gameweek 9 he’s contributed in five – three of them have been double figure scores. This week he picked up 15 points and Greenyteamy had him as captain. A few other Buckets managers followed suit and there has been an increase in the ownership of Chelsea assets, particularly Hazard and Morata. Hornets, at the top of our league, captained Morata. As did Fun Lovren Criminals and Gotta Light in third and fourth. This shift has probably been prompted by the run of winnable fixtures Chelsea have between now and the New Year, as well as the complete unreliability of Lukaku and Kane and the slowing down of the Man City express. It seems City are in a groove now of only being able to win games 2-1 with very late winners, which isn’t good for those with City defenders, or a triple of City attackers. Points are being dropped somewhere. It’s worth noting also that Greenyteamy have achieved this rise up the table having never had Kane in their team. So there you go – you don’t need him. But dare you get rid? There’s a double gameweek just been announced. Spurs play twice in gameweek 22. This might seem like a lifetime away but such is the fixture build up it’s actually only in four weeks. So if you do get rid, the likelihood is you’re only going to want to get him back.

Player of the week – Philippe Coutinho – 18 points

Throwing another midfield spanner in the works, Coutinho’s form looks like it could be on the rise again. It’s been an in and out season dogged by injury and constant rumours of his exit to Barcelona. He’s made four double figure scores all season in just eight gameweek appearances, scoring four, making five and picking up 10 bonus points. He’s almost guaranteed to score something if he plays. Liverpool are the new City. Their goal machine has cranked up a gear since the 4-1 hammering to Spurs seven gameweeks ago. They’ve netted 19 times in the last six. And as well as considering the Chelsea fixtures for the next few weeks it may well be worth looking at Liverpool assets, particularly their front four of Coutinho, Firmino, Mane and, of course, Mohamed Salah. Salah should be a mainstay by now anyway. In among the fixture pile up expect at least three of these four to play and watch the points roll in.

Bargain of the week – Jesse Lingard – 15 points

Lingard has two double figure contributions in the last two weeks but the problem is you’re never quite sure whether he’s going to nail down a permanent starting berth in that team. He seems to be in a constant rotation with the likes of Mata, Martial and Rashford, and could quite easily be dropped for the next match. Form dictates he shouldn’t be but it is the Manc derby, so maybe Mourinho will think more defensively for that game.

Twat of the week – Davinson Sanchez – -2 points

Spurs players are not popular at the moment. The defenders are not keeping clean sheets, or in Sanchez’s case, not keeping clean sheets and getting sent off for throwing vicious elbows into the opponent’s winger’s faces. They’re dropping like flies out of fantasy teams and dropping in value. Where has Dele Alli been this season? Playing well in Europe, that’s where.

Goal of the week – Philippe Coutinho.

November manager of the month – Greenyteamy – Adam Greenwood – 283 points

Greenyteamy’s monster scores in the first two weeks of the month put them so far out in front it was difficult to see how anyone could catch them. Despite a slight slip up last week, another impressive score this week – only four behind the week’s best – made sure of their monthly victory. Their four week run has seem them leap from twenty-fourth to fourth and into that pack chasing down the Hornets, who still hold a 31 point lead at the top.

Manager of the week – Atletico Chappers – Richard Chapman – 67 points

Up into 12th and finishing 3rd in the November table Chappers have also made great strides in the last few weeks climbing from 37th at the end of October. They’ve tried out, and I suppose, been kind of successful, with a rotation of Watford captains for the last four weeks. Either Richarlison or Abdoulaye Doucoure are handed the armband and between them have picked up 4, 12, 6 and 6 points. There have been better options as captain, particularly with Mohamed Salah, Jamie Vardy and Marcos Alonso as ever presents. But had Chappers picked the best scoring of their Watford players each week, they’d have notched scores of 14, 12, 16 and 14 and that would have outscored Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku combined. So there is some method to this madness.

Player of the week – Mesut Ozil – 17 points

January is approaching so it’s time for Ozil (and Sanchez) to start giving a shit. Since gameweek nine he has scored two and assisted five Arsenal goals. Yet, in that time he has been transferred OUT of more teams and has seen his value drop to £9.3 million. It’s still not all that cheap for a player so unpredictable and there is so much competition in the midfield, but with only a 1.8% (1.8%??!?!?!?!) ownership, having this guy in your team could work in your favour. Nobody else will be scoring those points

Bargain of the week – Ashley Young – 15 points

Watch this value rocket in the coming weeks. Young started the season as a £5 million midfielder and only made his first appearance in gameweek 5 coming in to plug the hole in United’s left back area. He’s been an ever present since that game and has been a stand-out performer in recent weeks. The last three have garnered two goals, two assists, six bonus points and 29 points overall. It’s tricky to second guess managers and who knows what’s going to happen as the December fixture pile-up kicks in, but he seems to have that position nailed at the moment. The potential is there for more, particularly when Jose opts to play with three at the back and pushes the wing backs further forward. It’s a shame we don’t get clean sheet points for his displays as well. He’d be an absolute must-have as a defender.

Twat of the week – Pablo Zabaleta – -1 points

Just when you thought Everton were the most massively under-achieving and overpaid wastes of money in the league – you’re reminded of West Ham. Zabaleta probably should have seen red after getting away with a worse challenge than the one that saw him pick up his yellow card. There is little sense in having a West Ham defender in your team.

Goal of the week – Jamie Vardy.

Probably ten contenders. But as I rather stubbornly and unforgiving think any footballer worth their salt should be able to kick the ball into an empty net from 60 yards (Rooney) or run with a ball unchallenged for 60 yards (Lingard), I’ll give it to the most skillful goal of the (Tuesday) night. Goal at 2 minutes in.

Manager of the week – Ian Williams – Emergency Gap Jumper – 66 points

Two managers finished the week on 66 points but it was the Emergency Gap Jumpers who claim the weekly honours by virtue of scoring one more goal than The Craggy Islanders. Their four goals came from Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane – who, in the week when the majority ditched him as their go to captain, finally came good. Neither team have put themselves into contention for the November manager of the month. That still looks like a race between Greenyteamy and Nashton Villa, although a strong gameweek from Atletico Chappers has moved them to within striking distance.

At the top of the overall league, Hornets remain the team to catch – as they have done all season. The gap back to Fun Lovren Criminals stands at 34 points. Last year’s runners up, Despicable Mee, since gameweek 8, have moved from 19th to 15th to 11th to 8th to 5th – and now into third – and look set for another title challenge.

Player of the week – Marvin Zeegelaar – 14 points

Assisted two of Watford’s goals against Newcastle in only his second appearance for the club. He didn’t have a bad first week either getting clean sheet and bonus points in the victory over West Ham. There are lots of temptingly cheap Watford options springing up at the moment. Last week, Will Hughes, in only his second start, almost took the bargain award, and he added another eight points to his total this week. Interestingly, Watford have scored at least twice in every away game they’ve played this season. And I bet most managers would back the home defence for a clean sheet against them in most weeks. Don’t.

Bargain of the week – Charlie Austin – 13 points

There was little action on the striker front this week with only Austin bagging more than one goal. It’s his first start of the season after having only made a few minutes worth of substitute appearances in recent weeks. Saints had only scored four goals from open play before the weekend. If Austin can steer clear of the treatment room and cement a starting berth he should add to that total.

Twat of the week – Rajiv Van La Parra – -1 points

Waited until after the final whistle to engage in a bit of handbags with Leroy Sane, who can probably consider himself fortunate not to have a similar ban looming. With the amount of big point scoring midfielders active in the game at the moment we could do with the odd ban and/or injury being thrown in just to narrow down the choices a little bit.

Goal of the week – Xherdan Shaqiri.

Usually pops up with a few wonder goals per season (and little else). No vid though?!

Manager of the week – Nashton Villa – Jaime Nash – 102 points

Seven clean sheets and 30 goals set up plenty of high scoring opportunities this week and for the first time this season the century barrier was broken. As a result a new highest weekly score target has been set. An honourable mention must go to Greenyteamy who leap 11 places into the top five with a whopping 100 point return. Last week’s highest scorers missed out on two consecutive manager of the week awards by two points. They are however way out in front in the chase for the November manager of the month. The only team with a chance of catching them appear to be this week’s highest scorers, Nashton Villa. Nashton’s 102 points saw them jump 16 places to 16th overall. Both placed the armband on Mohamed Salah – Nashton threw their triple captain chip at the Egyptian. That extra 16 points was the difference as Greeny’s had more double figure scorers, including our player of the week and two of the the top three gameweek attackers.

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 18 points

It was another week of frustration for those opting for Harry Kane as captain, and to a degree, Romelu Lukaku. And it was a week of some notable point scoring comebacks that are sure to throw spanners in the works and give selection headaches for the weeks to come. Paul Pogba and Philippe Coutinho made scoring returns from injury – and it might be worth keeping an eye on Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Most ominous is Eden Hazard’s player of the week contribution. It becomes his third point-scoring performance of the last four games. Also, Chelsea’s fixtures, following a tricky trip to Anfield this weekend, hit a purple patch all the way through to the new year. Definitely one to watch.

Bargain of the week – Callum Wilson – 17 points

Another gradual comeback crowned by a match-winning performance and only the third Premier League hat trick of the season. Callum Wilson made a blistering start to his Premier League career only for a serious injury to stop him in his tracks – and that included a hat trick against West Ham in the early part of the 2015/16 season. So don’t rush out to buy him just yet. He could lose a leg next weekend.

Twat of the week – Simon Francis – -2 points

A second successive clean sheet for Bournemouth, but one that won’t be enjoyed by those that saw an opportunity to bring in this particular defensive asset. The fact they went on to score two more goals after the dismissal might make it worse. He really didn’t need to put himself in that position after all.

Goal of the week – Kevin De Bruyne. City’s 5th goal of the week winner.
