Buckets Cup preliminary round

The preliminary round of the Buckets Cup was played this week. You can check the full list of results and the draw for the first round proper on the Buckets Cup page. Biscuitmen, adrift by over 100 points at the bottom of the league, scored a win over Kompany & Co. They played their wildcard this week to aid the victory and are maybe looking at sneaking through the cup to rescue their dismal league season. The Vinegar Pissers became the highest placed team to exit the competition, losing to new league leaders and highest scoring team of the week, Brexiter City.

Manager of the week – Colin Goulding – Brexiter City – 67 points

Speaking of which…Brexiter have made a bee-line for the top having spent most of the season loitering around the lower reaches of the top ten. Their week winning score pushes Hornets back down to second by three points. Both captained Salah for 30 points, but the player that arguably made the difference for Brexiter was Luca Milovejovic. The Palace midfielder is a regular pick now and on penalties. This was his sixth goal of the season – his fourth from the spot. It was also his second full bonus point haul in five weeks.

Player of the week – Aaron Ramsey – 20 points

A good week for Arsenal in which not only did Aaron Ramsey place himself back on our radar, but Henrik Mkhitaryan assisted three of the five they put past Arsenal and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his debut. Maybe that old Dortmund partnership is worth keeping an eye on. Both Ramsey and Mkhitaryan’s in and out seasons have seen their values drop to £6.9 and £7.7 million respectively. Depending on the make up of your team they could be nicely priced to slot in alongside those luxury midfielders from City and Liverpool. Ramsey’s total is only the second 20 point haul this season, equalling Sergio Aguero’s score from gameweek five.

Bargain of the week – Federico Fernandez – 10 points

The Swans revival continues apace. This is the third consecutive week in which Swansea have a leading player. It’s the second time in three weeks that player has been Federico Fernandez. They’ve just put eight past Notts County in a cup replay too, so this run could continue for a few more weeks yet. Their fixtures up to GW32 are all against teams in and around them at the bottom, and in their current form all look very winnable.

Twat of the week – Michael Keane – -1 points

A bad week for Everton. It looked like Allardyce had sorted their defence out, but it’s crumbled again in recent weeks. Keane was the fall guy getting hooked at half time having already conceded four. It has been six weeks since their last clean sheet.

Goal of the week – Jose Izquierdo. Lots of contenders this week – Wanyama, Salah, Lemina, Danilo. Start 1m40s in

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 

No vid. disgraceful

Gameweek 25 preview

February 10, 2017

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

It’s worth remembering that the next gameweek has a reduced schedule due to the League Cup final. No Manchester teams, no Arsenal and no Southampton. And then don’t forget gameweek 28 with the potential for no Manchester teams, no Arsenal and no Southampton. No Stoke, no Spurs, no Boro, no Sunderland and no Leicester. No Liverpool. No Burnley, no Watford…and no Chelsea.

So be careful. This week the Manchester teams in particular offer very tempting transfer options. But for two blank weeks in four…?

City will definitely get a hatful against Bournemouth. That defence are plummeting Bournemouth into a relegation fight, conceding, on average, between two and three goals a game. I notice a few Buckets managers have taken the punt on Gabriel Jesus, which definitely paid off last weekend. He’ll no doubt see his ownership and value increase ahead of this game too. And Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling have two goals and five assists between them in the last three matches.

Watford travel to Old Trafford and they haven’t triumphed there since 1978. Watford may have won two on the bounce, but United are on a 15 game streak without losing. They’ve the most affordable defence of the top six and Zlatan’s on 11 in 14. Still only in 2.7% of teams, and £0.7 million cheaper than his starting price is Henrik Mkhitaryan. He’s finally repaying the transfer fee, starting every game and having an increasing influence upon them.

But for two blank weeks in four…?

And dare you sell Alexis Sanchez?

Or keep him. For two blank weeks in four?
