Very brief this week due to the quick turnaround between gameweeks. Ciderheads are the weekly winners. Retaining Kane the key and a good performance from Charlie Daniels against hapless Swansea. It’s always worth looking at who they’re playing for some guaranteed goal points. The Islanders remain top, but again allowed teams below to claw back a few points. They were involved in a very close run thing for the manager of the month prize. That final table looks like this…

With three minutes to go in the 8 o’ clock kick offs last night, Neil Madrid was the manager of the month. Then Adam “one touch, bang, goal” Le Fondre pierced the complacent Chelsea defence – twice. And with this, Neil Madrid were 10 points poorer – and Goodbutnosigurdsson were 11 points richer. Finishing with 67 points for the week, and 299 points for the month, Goodbutnosigurdsson win the manager of the week, and the January manager of the month awards. Bastard.

4 Hedgehog Corpse FC Nick Smith 51 268
5 A Pint of Fuller’s P Hawkins 42 265
6 Pescara Rangers Stewart Pope 60 263

Neil Madrid finishes 2nd for the 3rd time in 4 months. Goodbutnosigurdsson goes from strength to strength. Maybe a top 4 finish is not out of their grasp after all. This is their 2nd consecutive manager of the week award. And they’re the first team to win 3 weekly awards.

  • Player of the week – Leighton Baines – 17 points. England’s best full back.
  • Bargain of the week – James McArthur – 13 points. A good week for the X-Factor winner.
  • Donkey of the week – Joey O’Brien – -1 points. Own goal and now regular West Ham defensive capitulation.

Goal of the gameweek

Tough. Lots of contenders. Cabaye. Walcott. Baines. Le Fondre. And Gareth Bale…

This weeks winners are None of the Above who picked up 73 points, and climbed 6 places up the table. As with most teams, Van Persie captained, picking up 18 points, but the key was the four goals scored across their midfield scored by Fellaini, Michu and player of the week, Wayne Routledge.

It was tight in the race to be November’s Manager of the Month. The £10 prize was won by (Your Ad Here). They had a good week scoring 66 points, and that was enough to pip Pescara Rangers to the prize. (Your Ad Here) have been slowly rising over the last 7 weeks – close to 700,000 places in the world game – and from 23rd to 11th in the Buckets league over the same period.

Sad news this week as it appears that Shadwell Town are close to going out of business. Shadwell have been unable to pay their wages, and last week were only able to put 9 players out on the pitch. The administrators have been called in and a deadline has been set for the club to settle unpaid bills. More on this next week.

  • Player of the week – Wayne Routledge – 15 points. Seems to have finally found a home at his 363,489th club
  • Bargain of the week – Cameron Jerome – 11 points. All scored within 23 minutes.
  • Donkey of the week – Martin Skrtel – 0 points. A bit harsh, as he was one of many players to score zero points, but he was the most costly, ergo…

I ought to stop making predictions. Maybe Les Canaris should write this blog. After a shocking start, they’ve gone from second bottom in gameweek 2 to 3rd by gameweek 8. Not only that, this week’s score of 77 wins the manager of the week award. In the overall game they have climbed 100,000 places in 6 gameweeks. It’s their second consecutive 70+ score. They’re on the brink of winning the October Manager of the month (more of that later) and they’ve risen (almost) into the top 10,000 worldwide. A good week to be a Norwich fan. Aswell as Mata and Van Persie, Raheem Sterling contributed a hefty chunk of the Canaris’ final total. A player who many managers are now realising might play every week. And why not – he’s better than Stewart bloody Downing. Still less than 5 million. Get in quick.

So, who ruined my week this week? Arsenal. The week didn’t start well with two big scoring injuries to work round, but I had two free transfers to play with. Fellani and Gibbs out – Santos (Gibbs’ likely replacement) and the (supposedly) rejuvenated Gervinho in – for Norwich v Arsenal – away banker – Norwich don’t keep clean sheets – Arsenal always score. Until now.

And the Chelsea Tottenham game produced goals and lots of points. Juan Mata was in my team at the start of the season – when he was shit. I ousted him in my week 2 wildcard frenzy. Now he’s good. And Eden Hazard, who I didn’t have, and who came in to replace him – isn’t quite so effective. And Mata wins the player of the week award for almost singlehandedly putting the Spuds to the sword in a great second half display. He’s value is going to start rising again. It had sunk to 8.9 from 9.5 million at start of play on Saturday. It’s not going to be easy to squeeze him back in again without wishing you had another wildcard readily available. Unless you get rid of Hazard – but then you know what’ll happen then…

Still no clean sheets coming out of Manchester. Not for the first time and probably not for the last, City turned up for the last 10 minutes of their game. The sign of Champions some would say. And whereas they still look some way off being convincing, United look like they’re getting their attacking players firing. Which is more than useful when you’ve got a defence like hot butter.

And so next week we will crown the October Manager of the Month. Les Canaris are way out in front, but a poor week could let in a gaggle of teams bubbling under. Voici…

1 Les Canaris David Spinks 77 149
2 Uriah Rennie 2nd XI Neil Greenwood 49 126
3 Pescara Rangers Stewart Pope 53 124
4 Shoelace Untied Caroline Strong 64 121
5 Panza Grande XI Stuart Baker 42 115
6 Pretty Schitty City Alex Michaluk 59 113
7 A Pint of Fuller’s P Hawkins 66 111
  • Player of the week – Juan Mata – 18 points. I’ll let you know when I bring him back in, so you can all transfer him out.
  • Bargain of the week – Chris Baird – 15 points. Normally posts double figures once a season. Here it is.
  • Donkey of the week – James Milner – -2 points. A little unlucky, but rules are rules. Lasted two minutes less than Tiote.

Goal of the weekend

A few to pick from, but you can’t beat an audacious flick from a Wigan defender.

Although, someone might have to remind me how to play this game. I thought it’d be worth the 8 point hit making another three transfers. They seemed like a good idea at the time. I’m now relegation fodder. Almost got it right – went all out on Everton – just picked the wrong bastard players. I’ve been a bit transfer happy this season – a bit too “tinkerman”. I’m leaving them alone for a few weeks. It’s an international break after this next gameweek. That’s when my season starts. And to think, I thought I had an outside chance of Manager of the Month…

…And that award goes to Bermie United, who held off a strong challenge from Les Canaris to hold on to the lead in the monthly league table, thus…

1 Bermie Utd Glen Davies 40 221
2 Les Canaris David Spinks 60 218
3 Upper Bullens Scouse Mouse 57 218
4 A Few Good Men Darren Pope 44 210
5 A Pint of Fuller’s P Hawkins 53 206
6 Hedgehog Corpse FC Nick Smith 38 205
7 None Of The Above Jonny Mabbutt 64 204

And the Manager of the week award goes to Shadwell Town, who still hasn’t made any transfers – that’s none in 44 gameweeks. Yet, their score of 67 is enough to win them the weekly award, and push them up into mid-table.

It was another unfathomable week. Only two clean sheets. Anyone with a Stoke or Sunderland defender? Not many of us. Other than Ryan Shawcross (in 18% of teams) and Asmir Begovic (in 8% of teams), FPL managers across the board aren’t keen on a red and white striped defence. Yet, almost 20% of teams still have Vincent Kompany. That’s Vincent “no-clean-sheets-no-bonus-points-still-in-single-figures-and-all-for-a-whopping-seven-million” Kompany.

At the other end of the pitch Luis Suarez stopped diving, cheating and being a general scumbag, whilst all the time hitting the post and the side netting, to finally give Liverpool fans something to smile about. He was the week’s top scorer. Demba Ba becomes the top scoring player, bagging another two goals, his fifth in three games, and picking up his fourth triple bonus point tally in six games. Peter Crouch scored two, and if the England team was picked on FPL points, Crouchy would be in it. And Steven Fletcher gets another mention – he’s played four times for Sunderland, scored in every one, and got full bonus marks every time. Who needs those 10 million plus big boys when you can spend 7 or 8 million on these players, and be almost guaranteed a goal and bonus every week?

  • Player of the week. Luis Suarez – 20 points. The second hat trick of the season and the second 20+ score of the season
  • Bargain of the week. Peter Crouch – 13 points. Still only 6.6 million
  • Donkey of the week. Samba Diakite – -2 points. 20 minutes, then off.

Could have been Demba Ba, but I’m trying to be unbiased.
