Top of the league – The Craggy Islanders – Adrian Roche – 2345 points

Da Pitch aren’t giving up on that title yet. They’re making every effort to close that gap. Scoring 105 points should help, unless the team you’re chasing racks up 104. The big scores were plentiful this week – seven in triple figures – only one less than last week. Albion aren’t out of contention either, posting 95 points. Our leaders however, crucially, still have their triple captain.

April manager of the month – Kebab Eaters United – Paul Howard – 351 points

April has probably produced a Buckets record for the highest monthly score for a four week game month. It took Kebab Eaters 351 points to win it – which included two 100+ scores. We’re looking at an average score of close to 90 points a week. Mentions too for the Islanders, Caligula and Da Pitch who weren’t far behind, also averaging an 80+ weekly total.

Manager of the week – Rip Roaring Reds – Sean Whyton – 125 points

For the second successive week we have a highest weekly score of 125 points. It was the triple captain chip that garnered the triple figure totals this week. And it was the triple captaining of one player in particular, Mo Salah, that reaped the greatest reward. The Islanders held the highest weekly score prize for one week only – they only scored four goals to the Reds’ seven. Most of us realised that all out Liverpool was the way to go with them coming up against the whippiest of whipping boys, Huddersfield. I suspect the Islanders are saving their triple captain for the last gameweek – a tactic which I think they’ve employed before – but had they gone with it they’d have accumulated the highest weekly score, won the manager of the week, the manager of the month AND probably sewn up the Buckets title.

Player of the week – Mohamed Salah – Liverpool – 19 points

It’s Salah’s second player of the week award. What a week to land the triple captain chip. He was always going to be the one and this Huddersfield fixture was always likely to be the game. There have been frustrating moments throughout the fantasy season for Salah owners, but he’s still leading scorer, and now by a fair distance. It appears that by not reaching the heights of last season he’s unworthy of a player of the year nomination or a place in the team of the year. Nonsense.

Bargain of the week – Cyrus Christie – Fulham – 11 points

Three consecutive clean sheets for Fulham. How did that happen? There’s no point in discussing this any further. Only ghost ships own Fulham defenders.

Twat of the week – Ainsley Maitland-Niles – Arsenal – -2 points

Doesn’t anybody want Champions League football next season? Maitland-Niles did Arsenal’s Europa League cause more good with dopey 30 minute red. He was on the Rip Roaring Reds’ bench. A smart place to put him.

Goal of the week – Ryan Babel. No vid.

Top of the league – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – Trev Reams – 1750 points

Da Pitch still hold the lead, but it’s only a slender two points over the surging Craggy Islanders who are on the hunt for the second title. Perfidious sit third and only ten points further back after a resurgent week, and although not completely out of touch and out of contention for the title, Neil Madrid and Bielsa Ringing will need near perfect run-ins to catch those sides ahead of them. And we probably shouldn’t rule out the possibility of INIT, FTM or Shoelace sneaking into fourth place. We’re entering silly season, as the blank and double gameweeks begin to form and chip tactics come into play. We’re faced with only five fixtures in GW31 and the likelihood of a similar figure in GW33, depending on the outcome of the next round of the FA Cup. Already Manchester United have had two of their fixtures rearranged and moved to the middle of gameweeks 32 and 35. Expect the other successful cup teams to see their fixtures moved to the same midweek slots. Of the leading contenders, The Craggy Islanders, Perfidious Albion, Neil Madrid and Bielsa Ringing have all of their chips and their wildcard remaining. Da Pitch just have their chips to play. FTM Have their wildcard but bench-boosted in GW10, whereas INIT have no wildcards or triple captain and Shoelace have no wildcards or free hit. Negotiating the next few weeks could be tricky without at least one of the wildcard or free hit still in the bag. And it shouldn’t all be about the leaders, as a perfectly played strategy of wildcards and chips could hand any team anywhere in the league any of the next three manager of the month awards. It might also be something the semi-finalists of the Buckets Cup want to consider…

Buckets Cup quarter finals

Although maybe not in the case of The Craggy Islanders or Neil Madrid who probably have their eyes on a bigger prize. And that may play into the hands of Fake Madrid and Kebab Eaters who are the other two teams to progress to the last four. The Islanders beat Da Pitch as Madrid saw off FTM in the two top ten clashes. The Islanders will play Fake Madrid, who beat El Loco No Joko, who inexplicably kept Virgil Van Dyk and Sergio Aguero on the bench?!?!?!? Kebab Eaters edged past Mour Salt and Pep to face Neil Madrid. It could be a Madrid derby final.

February manager of the month – Atletico Chappers – Richard Chapman – 309 points

Thanks to their top 2,000 in the world weekly score of GW27 and consolidating with a steady 50 pointer this week, Chappers pinch the February prize. I’m not sure they were really in it at all before hitting the dizzy heights at the weekend. They have Gerard Deulefeu to thank and did so by benching him for their hammering at the hands of Liverpool last night.

Manager of the week – Queen Of The North – Dorine Reacher – 84 points

A week for defenders this week and QOTN lined up two of the big scorers – Schar and Robertson – in their team. They amassed 43 points from those two and their other defender, Ashley Young, who chipped in with a goal, and their keeper, Allison. They wouldn’t be picking up this award however had it not been for a Marko Arnautovic no-show. Although quite what Sadio Mane was doing warming the bench is anyone’s guess given his present run of form of six goals in six games.

Player of the week – Virgil Van Dyk – Liverpool – 20 points

It would have been 51 points had Van Dyk been lined alongside them in a triple up Liverpool defence. It’s not a ludicrous idea given that they’re three of the six highest scoring defenders in the game and that Liverpool have more clean sheets than anyone else so far this season. They could surpass 20 which would be a great achievement. It bodes well for the weeks ahead in which Liverpool play every week. They have no doubles, but they also have no blanks.

Bargain of the week – Fabian Schar – Newcastle United – 15 points

There aren’t many players with two weekly player awards so far this season. Fabian Schar is probably the most unexpected recipient. A clean sheet and a wondergoal always equals top bonus. Newcastle will play the blank gameweek in 31, and have other potential clean sheet matches between now and then.

Twat of the week – Kieran Trippier – Tottenham Hotspur – -1 points

A wonderful own goal that totally wrong footed Hugo Lloris, a World Cup winning captain no less. Tottenham’s meltdown might have started a few weeks earlier this season.

Goal of the week – Fabian Schar.

Manager of the week – FC Caligula – Ajay Supeda – 80 points

From what I can see only two of us handed Mohamed Salah the armband this week. Caligula were the highest placed, now in 7th, and our highest scorers. Plenty of other teams had him but didn’t captain him, largely favouring Kane, who didn’t even start against Leicester. Lots of other teams don’t have him, having probably ousted him in recent weeks to buy Kane – or maybe Raheem Sterling. Caligula’s other 38 points were kind of cobbled together by a couple of clean sheets and just two more goals scored in another week where rotation caused mild panic and the need for a strong bench.

Player of the week – Mohamed Salah – Liverpool – 21 points

It’s all about him this week. And it’s a massive headache for those that don’t have him. How many teams in that 35% are ghost teams? Teams that picked him and maybe even set him as captain from week one but haven’t bothered playing the game. I wouldn’t be fooled by that figure. More managers have transferred him out rather than in over the course of this season. Just in the last three weeks nearly 100,000 managers have rejected him, probably to afford Sterling or Kane. This is the kind of gameweek that makes those decisions look awfully dumb. He’s now top of the scoring charts – somehow?! Liverpool’s strength so far this season has been keeping clean sheets as opposed to running riot at the other end of the park. Salah’s scoring rate appears fairly similar to that of last season too. Explosive bouts of scoring weren’t his thing. It was consistent high single figure to low double figure scoring. There were rare blanks but also hardly any bonus. Check out his bonus scores for this season – just 5 points. That’s less that Huddersfield’s Chris Löwe. The answer is to lose one of your heavy hitters if you have more faith in Salah, make six transfers to squeeze him in around a team full of dross or just leave it as it is and hope for the best.

Bargain of the week – James Tarkowski – Burnley – 14 points

All of the Burnley back line were capable of these type of scores all the way through last season. They perfected the ability to chip in with the odd goal or assist while keeping a clean sheet and winning 1-0. Not so much this season. Joe Hart sits top of the saves table which tells you a great deal about the holes in their defence. Their immediate fixtures aren’t great, so this may turn out to be more of a one off rather than a corner turned.

Twat of the week – DeAndre Yedlin – Newcastle United – -3 points

Newcastle’s defence are even less popular than Burnley’s, despite being amid a decent run of fixtures and being more than capable of frustrating more attacking teams. Dodgy refereeing and last minute winners didn’t help their cause on Sunday, although neither did Yedlin deciding to rugby tackle Diogo Jota when clean through on goal.

Goal of the week – Robert Snodgrass. At 31s in.

Manager of the week – Edgbaston – Micheal Dineen – 82 points

A crazy week of rotation as we start the slog through December. It gives you an indication of what it will be like once the festive fixtures kick in and highlights the need for a strong bench to cover those rests and knocks. Liverpool virtually fielded a second XI, electing to drop Salah and Firmino to the bench, while leaving Mane and Robertson at home. The most notable restee (?) was perhaps Raheem Sterling who wasn’t needed from the bench in City’s latest victory. Can we assume that those who didn’t play or had reduced minutes this midweek will be in the starting line up at the weekend? That’s the game. There were no clean sheets this week either, so any five man defences were in for a rough couple of nights.

The Kane to Aguero switch proved popular ahead of this gameweek, aided a little by the Aguero injury. I wonder how many would have taken the plunge if Aguero hadn’t been out. Spurs run of fixtures into the new year look like a potential goalfest for Kane and Aguero is much less rotation proof that the Spurs man with Gabriel Jesus waiting in the wings. Other than a potential rest around Tottenham’s important European game next week I think it’s safe to assume Kane will start every game through Christmas, probably earning his eventual break for the FA Cup 3rd Round against Shepshed Dynamo. Edgbaston made that move and captained Kane to good effect. Other goals from Wilson, Fraser, Pike, Mainwearing and Richarlison totted up an impressive 80+ total to move them from 6th all the way up to 5th.

Player of the week – Riyad Mahrez – Manchester City – 12 points

The City guessing game is never an easy one, but is made slightly less complicated by the long term absences of Kevin De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy. There seems to be some kind of rough three way rotation working around the central striker, whether that be Aguero or Jesus, and also around the central midfielder, who is the ever present Fernandinho. Dilva, Bilva and Gundogan rotate around the midfield positions, with Gundogan being perhaps the slightly less favoured, while Sterling, Mahrez and Sane do the same either side of the attacker.  Mahrez, like Gundogan, is getting slightly less minutes than the others, but it’s still enough to allow him to score his fourth double figure haul of the season. Will he play the next game? Who knows. It’s Chelsea, so Pep may choose his strongest XI, in which case Sane and Sterling may be the preferred two. Having said that, Sane has started and finished each of he last three games, so maybe Mahrez picks up another start and don’t bet against him adding to his double figure scores.

Bargain of the week – Lucas Perez – West Ham United – 12 points

Further proof the West Ham fixture swing is worth a look, although hats off to anyone who took a punt on Lucas Perez being the beneficiary. It took him 50 minutes to register his brace having come on for the injured Arnautovic. It looks likely the Austrian striker will be out until the New Year, so expect more minutes for Perez, although still perhaps playing second fiddle to Javier Hernandez.

Twat of the week – Marcos Rojo – Manchester United – -2 points

An unfortunate own goal put pay to any chance of Rojo keeping a minus score, despite what should probably be considered in terms of Man U at the moment, as a good performance against an in form Arsenal. United can’t seem to get a settled back line. Their combined ownership is probably at an all time FPL low.

Goal of the week – Florin Andone. 

No vid. He ran a long way with it.

Top of the league – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – Trev Reams – 429 points

Da battle for supremacy between Da Pitch and Perfidious continues with both cruising past da 400 point mark way ahead of anyone else, but it’s da former who have a slender one point advantage after outscoring their rivals this gameweek. Both sit in the top 10,000 overall and both lead the way in the battle for the September manager of the month.

However, both have wildcarded, as have Slabhead. Could someone from further back steal ahead and claim the September prize?

Manager of the week – Jaime Nash – Nashton Villa – 79 points

A welcome change in fortunes for last season’s runner up who has jumped almost a million places in the overall game. Disappointingly it only equates to three Buckets positions, but it’s a step in the right direction after having spent the opening weeks struggling to get over average scores and gaining no real boost from an early wildcard in gameweek 3. Villa took an 8 point hit for transfers and two of the three new boys returned 9 points – Joe Hart and James Maddison. Goals from Salah (c), Kane and Aguero, and clean sheets and bonuses from double-barreled full backs topped the total up nicely.

Player of the week – Joel Matip – Liverpool – 15 points

It wasn’t Ryan Fraser, the most transferred in player. He continued that curse by winding up on the end of a 4-0 thumping at the hands of the league’s bottom club. Thanks Ryan. After a few near misses a Liverpool player has finally found their place on the honours board. Matip completed a near clean sweep of defensive points. He was only missing the assist. And you can bag him for less than £5 million.

Bargain of the week – Ashley Barnes – Burnley – 12 points

Burnley finally have a win on the board and a second clean sheet to add to the one they picked up in gameweek 1. Their season appears to have started now the international break has passed and their European adventure has come to a premature end. A lot of their players suffered price drops through those opening weeks, Barnes being one of them. If their season is going to pick up, maybe he and one or two others will come on to our radar. It was his scoring prowess off the bench last season that eventually earned him more starts and he became a useful third striker to own.

Twat of the week – Wesley Hoedt – Southampton – -1 points

It probably should be a Cardiff player who are now shipping goals as we expected them to – four last week and five in this. Wesley Hoedt decided he’d score an own goal in a 3-0 defeat, which doesn’t do much for your fantasy cred.

Goal of the week – Joao Moutinho.
