A disastrous week for Neil Madrid. They fell completely out of contention for the October manager of the month award and relinquished their lead at the top, scoring a comparatively low 54 points compared to the majority of their pace-setting rivals who finished the weekend posting scores in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

Most notably, Uriah’s, who jumped from 5th to 1st with 94 points – a score that wins them the October manager of the month award.

And The Craggy Islanders, who are the top scoring team of the week with 95 points – which is also the highest weekly score of the season so far.

Roughly one in forty of all the managers in the game dispensed of Sergio Aguero in the last fortnight. That suggests at least one of us did too. Most leading Buckets managers held on to him it seems, although not many were prepared to offer him the captain’s armband. Uriah’s did, and it was this decision that boosted their score more than any other. Add to that an almost complete set of clean sheets, two assists and two goals out of the midfield and another double figure score courtesy of Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku was the key to the Islanders’ success, collecting 24 points as captain, backed up by Aguero’s 16 point haul. Tom Heaton, who is established as the number one keeper in the game, Alexis Sanchez and the in-form number 10, Joe Allen, added double figure amounts.

 

Player of the week – Ilkay Gundogan – 18 points. One to watch – a regular starter now?

Bargain of the week – James McArthur – 15 points. Palace’s best performer by a mile.

Donkey of the week – Craig Dawson – -1 points. The pricier of those defenders on the receiving end of a four goal defeat.

Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero (his second goal). He’s finished.

Two penalty saves in one game is a rare feat. Maarten Stekelenberg picked up 17 points, a massive total for a keeper, as a result of keeping out Kevin De Bruyne and then Sergio Aguero. The Aguero save in particular wouldn’t have gone down well with a lot of managers. Aguero scored a record low -1 points – -2 for the unfortunate bunch who opted for him as captain. You were unluckier still if you had Christian Benteke as another of your attackers. He also missed from the spot. Aguero became a first time donkey – out-donkeying even the Hull defence, but Stekelenberg’s efforts weren’t enough to secure him a player of the week award. Thanks to that Hull defence, Junior Stanislas outscored everyone else with only the second 20+ score of the season, equalling Nacer Chadli’s 21 points from a few weeks ago.

Top manager this week is Yeboah’s right foot – for the second consecutive week. This week they notched 70 points and moved a further seven places up the table from 22nd to 15th. They’d risen 13 places the previous week. Reminds me of the charts in the eighties. They could be top ten next week. Key to their total were goal scoring performances from Nathan Redmond and Dele Alli, who has actually had four scoring weeks in the last five – a little under the radar. I hadn’t noticed. Yeboah’s also plumped for Costa as their captain and had the form horse, Theo Walcott, leadng their midfield.

Player of the week – Junior Stanislas – 21 points. The new Capoue?

Bargain of the week – Joe Allen – 16 points. Stoke’s goal machine.

Donkey of the week – Sergio Aguero – -1 points. By no means a safe bet from the penalty spot.

Goal of the week – Jose Holebas.

Top scorers this week are Yeboah’s Right Foot with 72 points. It’s a total that helps them climb 13 places to the top half of mid table. Diego Costa was the principal point scorer collecting 24 points as their captain. Costa was the popular armband pick this week against a vulnerable Hull defence already straining under the weight of two early season suspensions. Suspensions to players who’ve been playing in defence, but would otherwise probably be playing in midfield if Hull had anything like a proper squad of players.

It was also the right week to stay clear of Aguero as a lot of managers appeared to do – this despite a record of nine goals in his last eight games against Spurs. The City striker barely got a shot away on target as Spurs strode to victory. The remain unbeaten, carry the best defensive record, and in Heung Min Son, have the form player in FPL at the moment.

 

Player of the week – Laurent Koscielny – 15 points. Scored with the last handball of the game.

Bargain of the week – Joe Allen – 8 points. Points were spread about a lot this weekend.

Donkey of the week – Aleksandar Kolarov – -1 points. An own goal donkey.

Goal of the week – Dimitri Payet.
