Jetty City, for the second consecutive week, win manager of the week. They were the only team to manage a 50+ score during the drab midweek. This weekend they almost hit a century. Had they played their perfect XI or played their bench boost they’d have got past the 100 point mark and achieved the highest weekly score.

They were one of the few teams who went with a Lukaku/Defoe double pronged attack, captaining the Belgian, and picking up 55 points from their strike force along. That’s more points from two players than most teams managed with their full XI – the teams that unluckily had neither striker in their line up. There were plenty of teams carrying Lukaku, most notably our top two, Aquamar and When Harry Met Alli, who both handed him the armband.

Aquamar were involved in the biggest tie of the preliminary round of the Buckets Cup, coming up against sixth placed Kebab Eaters United and triumphing 71-64. It’s unlucky on Kebab Eaters who were the second highest scoring losers of the round. Shoelace crept through scoring only 35 points to Bazza 28 United’s 30. No Fuchs Given and 4 Fuchs Ake’s victories have set up a Fuchs derby in the first round proper, whilst the closest tie of the round saw Hedgehog’s beat Uriah’s on goals scored, 5 to 4 – Lukaku the difference again. All results and revised first round draw are on the Buckets Cup page.

 

Player of the week – Romelu Lukaku – 21 points. Cue kneejerk Lukaku transferring across the board.

Bargain of the week – Lamine Kone – 13 points. Palace doomed.

Donkey of the week – Jeff Hendrick – -2 points. He lasted six minutes.

Goal of the week – Eden Hazard.

One of those weeks where nothing happened – nothing came off. Only 19 goals scored. The average FPL score was a measly 35 points. Our manager of the week managed 52 – the only manager to break 50 points. Jetty City crept ahead of everybody else probably because they had Gylfi Sigurdsson in their side. The Swansea midfielder doesn’t appear in too many other Buckets teams. A good example of a differential paying off.

The only side in the top six that won were City, and we got sick of them weeks ago. No goals for United or Spurs, a stalemate with two unlikely scorers between Chelsea and Liverpool and worst of all, Arsenal messing up at home to Watford, who have been in terrible form of late. Thank goodness for the Alexis Sanchez assist. He appeared to be the popular captain choice again and the extra four points probably turned what could have been a really shit week into…a fairly shit week.

There were some interesting tactics employed in the race for the January Manager of the Month. The top two challengers played chips. Greenyteamy went for the bench boost and that garnered them an extra 12 points. Upper Bullens triple captained Harry Kane to the tune of 6 points – essentially two more than they’d have got had they just not bothered.  Disappointing on the one hand, but it was enough to get them over the line. Might they regret those choices come the double gameweeks? Here’s the final table.

Player of the week – Scott Dann – 15 points. That first Palace win under Allardyce had to come sometime.

Bargain of the week – Michael Keane – 12 points. Burnley indestructible at home.

Donkey of the week – Jose Fonte – 0 points. West Ham always get hammered by Man City.

Goal of the week – David Luiz.
