November Manager of the month – Neil Madrid – Neil Strong – 272 points

Madrid were in fourth at the start of the month, 60 or so points adrift of the top. They now occupy the number one position, having clawed back that gap to take the prize for November. Swapping and off-the-boil Hazard for Raheem Sterling at the point the City man went fantasy nuts was surely the key. Madrid have posted five consecutive green arrow scores that has seen them rise from 196,000 to 13,000 overall. Check me out.

Manager of the week – FTM – Stu Smith – 76 points

FTM’s second week winning score in three wasn’t quite enough to push them to the summit of the monthly table, being let down arguably by their GW13 score. Nevertheless, they have climbed from 22nd to the outskirts of the top 10 and look set to push on through December. FTM are loving West Ham right now. Ahead of their favourable run of fixtures they picked up 15 points from Marko Arnautovic and Felipe Anderson. As with many teams, Sterling became default captain through Aguero’s absence, and a five man defence, also popular this week, propspered to he tune of 35 points. Only Jose Holebas failed to deliver a clean sheet.

Player of the week – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Arsenal – 16 points

Maybe game of the season. Maybe the best Arsenal have played in a decade. And as Raheem Sterling became the first player to pass the 100 point barrier, PEA hit his 9th and 10th goals of the season to move within nine points of the same target. Aubameyang comes into serious contention now, particularly with an injury to Sergio Aguero, Liverpool relying on Divock Origi, inevitable City rotation, and no-one quite sure whether Harry Kane is paying well or not. Spurs’ run of fixtures into February could result in a period of heavy scoring for the England captain. Arsenal’s, on paper, don’t look as easy, but their star striker looks capable of scoring past anyone at any time. His overall Premier League record is 20 goals in 27 appearances. With 23 matches of the season remaining, there’s a strong possibility he’ll get close to the 30 goal mark. Why would you want to miss out on all that?

Bargain of the week – Javier Hernandez – West Ham United – 13 points

Somewhat of an unexpected result, but one that should alert fantasy bosses to the potential value of one or two West Ham assets in their team. Hernandez may not start every week however, so maybe steering towards Arnautovic or Anderson would reap more rewards. West Ham don’t play a top six team again until GW22.

Twat of the week – Jan Vertonghen – Tottenham Hotspur – -3 points

The game started boiling over in the first half so there was a certain inevitability about a red card being dished out at some point. Vertonghen conceded the penalty and looked rattled throughout until he finally lost it after Arsenal had bagged their 4th goal. Despite the aforementioned fixture swing in favour of Spurs, I wouldn’t go anywhere near any of these defenders.

Goal of the week – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. 1m14s in. This game had it all.

November manager of the month – Greenyteamy – Adam Greenwood – 283 points

Greenyteamy’s monster scores in the first two weeks of the month put them so far out in front it was difficult to see how anyone could catch them. Despite a slight slip up last week, another impressive score this week – only four behind the week’s best – made sure of their monthly victory. Their four week run has seem them leap from twenty-fourth to fourth and into that pack chasing down the Hornets, who still hold a 31 point lead at the top.

Manager of the week – Atletico Chappers – Richard Chapman – 67 points

Up into 12th and finishing 3rd in the November table Chappers have also made great strides in the last few weeks climbing from 37th at the end of October. They’ve tried out, and I suppose, been kind of successful, with a rotation of Watford captains for the last four weeks. Either Richarlison or Abdoulaye Doucoure are handed the armband and between them have picked up 4, 12, 6 and 6 points. There have been better options as captain, particularly with Mohamed Salah, Jamie Vardy and Marcos Alonso as ever presents. But had Chappers picked the best scoring of their Watford players each week, they’d have notched scores of 14, 12, 16 and 14 and that would have outscored Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku combined. So there is some method to this madness.

Player of the week – Mesut Ozil – 17 points

January is approaching so it’s time for Ozil (and Sanchez) to start giving a shit. Since gameweek nine he has scored two and assisted five Arsenal goals. Yet, in that time he has been transferred OUT of more teams and has seen his value drop to £9.3 million. It’s still not all that cheap for a player so unpredictable and there is so much competition in the midfield, but with only a 1.8% (1.8%??!?!?!?!) ownership, having this guy in your team could work in your favour. Nobody else will be scoring those points

Bargain of the week – Ashley Young – 15 points

Watch this value rocket in the coming weeks. Young started the season as a £5 million midfielder and only made his first appearance in gameweek 5 coming in to plug the hole in United’s left back area. He’s been an ever present since that game and has been a stand-out performer in recent weeks. The last three have garnered two goals, two assists, six bonus points and 29 points overall. It’s tricky to second guess managers and who knows what’s going to happen as the December fixture pile-up kicks in, but he seems to have that position nailed at the moment. The potential is there for more, particularly when Jose opts to play with three at the back and pushes the wing backs further forward. It’s a shame we don’t get clean sheet points for his displays as well. He’d be an absolute must-have as a defender.

Twat of the week – Pablo Zabaleta – -1 points

Just when you thought Everton were the most massively under-achieving and overpaid wastes of money in the league – you’re reminded of West Ham. Zabaleta probably should have seen red after getting away with a worse challenge than the one that saw him pick up his yellow card. There is little sense in having a West Ham defender in your team.

Goal of the week – Jamie Vardy.

Probably ten contenders. But as I rather stubbornly and unforgiving think any footballer worth their salt should be able to kick the ball into an empty net from 60 yards (Rooney) or run with a ball unchallenged for 60 yards (Lingard), I’ll give it to the most skillful goal of the (Tuesday) night. Goal at 2 minutes in.

We have our first gap opening up at the top of the table. We’ve a two team brekaway. Uriah Rennie 2nd XI and Queen Of The North move past the 700 point mark with healthy weekly scores of 65 and 66. The gap between QOTN and The Craggy Islanders in 3rd is 23 points. Then only 13 points separate the next nine teams. In fact, an inspired captain choice and prevailing wind could see teams as far down as maybe Rip Roaring Reds in 17th climb the league and land somewhere in the top ten and within shooting distance of the prize money.

November manager of the month goes to Greenyteamy who held off challenges from a number of teams to hold on to the lead they’d established after last week’s matches. Only Yeboahs Right Foot and Hedgehog Corpse of those featured in the monthly table appear in the overall top ten. This may explain the tightly packed nature of the mid table. Other than our leading pair and Hedgehogs, the rest of our top ten had a fairly uninspiring week in which they limped to an around-average score. Much the same as last week. And the week before.

Buckets stalwarts, Romeoshondavan, scored the highest weekly score. More than half of their 70 point total came courtesy of old faithfuls Sergio Aguero (as captain) and Alexis Sanchez. Before the week started, Philippe Coutinho was not only the most picked player in the game, but also the most transferred in and most popular captain of the week. He lasted 36 minutes. The rap he took to his ankle looks like it might rule him out until the New Year. There was potential for a Sunderland trouncing at the hands of the Liverpool midfield, but it never transpired, and left a lot of managers cursing their luck.

The nine goal thriller served up by Swansea and Palace provided us with six of the ten players who managed double figure scores this week. They’re not among the most popular teams with fantasy managers. I know a couple of Buckets teams have Christian Benteke clogging up their attack. His ownership across the whole game is only at 6%. More surprisingly perhaps is that Gylfi Sigurdsson appears in only 5.2% of teams in the game as a whole. Maybe his value seems a little high. But, he’s a top ten midfielder, has played virtually every minute of Swansea’s last nine games and has contributed meaningful points in seven of them. Basically if Swansea score, he’s usually somewhere in the mix.

 

Player of the week – Fernando Llorente – 15 points. Collected in 25 minutes.

Bargain of the week – Leroy Fer – 14 points. His 5th and 6th goals of the season. Only Hazard and Sanchez have more in the midfield.

Donkey of the week – Kyle Naughton – -1 points. A clean sweep. His fourth donkey in three years.

Goal of the week – Pedro. Finally worth considering him for your fantasy team. At 3m25s

SS3 FC score 90 points and are the team of the week. They’re the first to win two weekly awards this season, and in doing so have climbed to their highest league position of 17th. Employing Kevin de Bruyne as captain was a smart move. The Belgian playmaker was the player of the week, and so added 32 points towards SS3’s total. They also earned 13 points from last weeks player of the week, Ross Barkley, and 12 from Odion Ighalo, this weeks highest scoring striker. Add to that the inevitable contribution from Jamie Vardy – 9 points this week – and that’s 66 points from just four players.

It was a close run thing for manager of the month. Shoelace had been leading the monthly table for the last couple of weeks and were doing so on Saturday night. But they only managed to add a further three points on Sunday and that wasn’t enough to hold off the challenge of The Mindless Morons, who added 17 further points to their Saturday total. Mesut Ozil scored 10 of those 17, meaning he has now scored in 10 of the 14 gameweeks – a record that’s only bettered by Vardy. The other seven points, crucially, came from a substitution. Adam Smith was promoted to the team to replace Vincent Kompany. The Bournemouth defender has scored no more than a point per performance and has mainly been warming the Morons’ bench since week one…until he launched a sweetly struck 25 yard volley into the roof of Tim Howard’s net this weekend. The Mindless Morons win November. They were second bottom at the end of October. Their recent form has seen them climb ten places and 100 points ahead of the current second bottom side.

At the top of the table Golden Boys extend their lead to 34 points. That’s the biggest gap between first and second so far this season. This week they scored 70 points using only 10 players. It was 12 more than their two closest challengers, Caligula and Your Ad Here. Pretty Schitty City dropped a couple of places down to fifth to complete a disappointing month. PSC were a point behind Golden Boys at the end of October – they’re now 55 behind. 4 Lime Jellies ended their recent disappointing run by climbing back up to fourth with a respectable 68 point haul.

 

Player of the week – Kevin de Bruyne – 16 points. Good City showed up this week.

Bargain of the week – Patrick Van Aanholt – 15 points. Two consecutive clean sheets for Sunderland. Time to consider the Allardyce factor?

Donkey of the week – Ryan Shawcross – -3 points. Ruined Stoke’s run of clean sheets, although it was a harsh red card.

Goal of the week – Jamie Vardy.

RayCrawfordsCrackers win their third weekly award, although they’ve not yet to feature in the reckoning for a monthly prize. Our resident tinkerman is at it again. They were the only teamto break the 60 point barrier in a relatively low scoring week. Their main man was West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell who contributed 15 points.

That’s what you get for a 90 minute appearance as a defender, uncarded, with a goal, a clean sheet and full bonus marks. It’s also what Gael Clichy, Glen Johnson and Chris Smalling achieved this weekend. In the event of this four way tie the player of the week award goes to Glen Johnson. He, Clichy and Smalling all come in at £0.1 million cheaper than Cresswell. Surprising? Not really – it’s a fair reflection on their form and clean sheet keeping ability. Johnson clinches the award essentially for being the least popular – with only a 0.8% ownership compared to 0.9% for Smalling and an oddly high 5.4% for Clichy. An international reputation and a few Premier League winners medals means very little in fantasy football.

The November Manager of the month is Neil Madrid. Their 52 points was more than enough to keep them ahead of Paris Spinks Germain to win the £10 prize. No-one really got close to Neil Madrid who started the month in 16th and almost 100 points behind the leaders, but ended it in 6th and within 40 points of top spot.

Bargain of the week – Costel Pantilimon – 10 points. Kept out Chelsea for his second consecutive clean sheet.
