Manager of the week – Perfidious Albion – Andrew Swift – 61 points 

This time last season there were only four matches played in the first reduced gameweek, yet it produced the highest weekly score of 124 points and saw a dozen managers hit triple figures thanks to a four goal blitz from Mo Salah against Watford. Fast forward 12 months and anyone hoping for a similar performance would have been sorely disappointed. The stats were there and surely he’s due one – but there was a much more obvious and sensible captain choice stood on the other side of the pitch at kick off – Sadio Mane. Perfidious’s total of 61, with 26 points contributed by Mane, sees them regain the overall league lead, sailing past Da Pitch and The Islanders who like most of the rest of us limped past the weekly average of 26 –  surely an all time low. Spare a thought for those who’ve toiled for weeks or taken massive hits to try and get an XI out. There are those that probably decided to weather the storm and take a risk on a depleted squad who scored more points.

Player of the week – Karlan Grant – Huddersfield Town – 13 points

There were plenty of goals around – an average of 4 per game – it’s just the majority were scored by players completely off the radar…like this dude. And they still got beat.

Bargain of the week – Wes Morgan – Leicester City – 10 points

Not the Leicester player we were all banking on either…

Twat of the week – Harry Maguire – Leicester City – -2 points

…whereas this donkey lasted four bloody minutes and probably shaped the way many people’s weekends were going to go
Goal of the week – Matt Ritchie.
Video-less. It was a screamer.

September manager of the month – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – Trev Reams – 286 points

BDPA1 and Perfidious Albion continue their nip and tuck battle at the top of the table. Albion earned more points this week to snatch the overall lead back, but it wasn’t quite enough to claim the September monthly prize. Only four points separate the two teams at the top and both find themselves in the top 6,000 worldwide. I’m not sure we’ve had two better starters. Third place are almost 40 more points back. Despite that, we’re doing better as a league as a whole. Last season at this stage twelve teams had passed the 400 point stage. This season twenty teams have passed that mark. This season’s top 10 are all 30+ points better off than last season’s equivalent teams.

Manager of the week – Thelma And Luiz – Trevor Gordon – 99 points

Serial prize botherers and winners of this season’s best team name, if such a thing existed, Thelma And Luiz (Thelma is presumably Gary Cahill’s real name), are this week’s highest climbers and posters of the most impressive wildcard total to date. After making a squillion changes, their near century total came about by dispensing of the services of the price tumbling Salah and Mendy among others and bringing in double figure scoring form horses Matt Doherty, Harry Kane, Johann Berg Gudmunsson and Raheem Sterling. They’ve achieved a top 2,000 worldwide weekly score and rose almost 700,000 places overall – that’s 15 places in Bucketsworld.

Player of the week – Harry Maguire – Leicester City – 18 points

We’ve a couple of whipping boy teams developing. Cardiff, Huddersfield and Newcastle were all on the receiving end of yet another defeat, all conceding two. Newcastle allowed Harry Maguire a clean sweep – goal, assist, clean sheet and top bonus…

Bargain of the week – Johann Berg Gudmunsson – Burnley – 13 points

…while Cardiff almost afforded the same luxury to Johann Berg Gudmunsson. They scored a goal to deprive him of the clean sheet point. He moves onto four assists for the season, becoming the highest assisting midfielder in the game as Burnley’s season continues on it’s now upward trajectory.

Twat of the week – Victor Lindelof – Manchester United – -2 points

Most of the players don’t like the manager and the manager doesn’t like most of the players. And the ones he’s left with are shit at fantasy league.

Goal of the week – Daniel Sturridge.

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 – Hornets – 80 points

Straight to the top of the league and in pole position for the first manager of the month prize go league newcomers, Hornets. Player of the week, Marcos Alonso, top scored, with added double figure totals courtesy of our goal of the week scorer, Aaron Mooy, and Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. Pogba, along with Henrik Mkhitaryan, are top of the midfielder points, and at long last making those transfer fees seem worthwhile. Lukaku, meanwhile, isn’t wasting any time. He’s the most selected and was the most captained this gameweek.

Player of the week – Marcos Alonso – 16 points

Hopefully there weren’t too many kneejerk reactions to Cheslea’s poor showing against Burnley last week. Alonso has very quickly reminded us why he’s the most expensive defender, by basically playing as an attacker, and curling in a trademark beauty of a free kick. Harry Kane got booked again. How many kneejerk reactions will there be to his crap start? Surely next week against Burnley is where he finally makes his mark on the season?

Bargain of the week – Harry Maguire – 15 points

Leicester look far more capable of scoring and keeping clean sheets already than at any point last season. Scoring and keeping a clean sheet is exactly what Maguire did. He seems to have cemented his starting berth although three tough fixtures in the next four await.

Twat of the week – Kyle Walker – -2 points

And if you did kneejerk away from the Chelsea defence, lets hope you didn’t plump for Kyle Walker.

Goal of the week – Aaron Mooy
