Gameweek 22 results

Last week FTM scored 26 points. It was their lowest total of the season and saw them exit the Last Man Standing competition. Fast forward seven days and with just one transfer made, they’re this week’s outstanding team. It’s even more spectacular when considering that the transfer they made was to switch Harry Kane for, of all people, Troy Deeney. Deeney’s goal, Jorginho’s promotion from the bench and Rashford coming through as captain combined to help FTM make back most of the 600,000 or so places lost by last week’s horror show. They shared their 81 point haul with Queen Of The North, but FTM outscored them by six goals to five.

There wasn’t much to choose between managers this week. Three top ten teams managed 60 points and most of the league posted around that total. Very few dipped below 50 or crept above 70. Musttryharder made the most ground within the top ten with a 73 point total, climbing one place in Buckets and 100,000 overall. It came with the help of a bench boost that added an extra 9 points. We’ll have to wait and see whether that was an ill-judged move ahead of double gameweek season. Also interesting to see that Locky’s have played their new wildcard already.

Regards Last Man Standing – I think we’re getting to the stage now where no-one’s really safe from elimination, regardless of where you are in the league. Soup-or-Boom, currently in 11th, left us this week, scoring 49 points along with Cook Pass Babtridge, scoring 48. Nashton, currently in 10th, were next on the chopping block with 54 points. That’s only three below the overall average score for the gameweek. Having said that, So Klose Yet So VAR, presently in 52nd place, are still going strong. We’re almost half way there with this competition. After GW24 there’ll be more teams eliminated than standing. Getting somewhere around average may not be enough to save you.

Manager of the week – FTM – Stu Smith – 81 ponts (6 goals)

Bargain of the week – Abdoulaye Doucoure – Watford – 14 points

May Manager of the Month – Queen of the North – Dorine Reacher – 76 points

The two week sprint to become May manager of the month was won by Queen of the North. Despite racking up some big totals over the season and winning three weekly awards (the joint highest), consistency was lacking. They won by a point, playing their free hit and bench boost in the last two weeks. A curious decision which only just worked.

Manager of the week – Atletico Chappers – Richard Chapman – 93 points

Chappers’ season panned out in a similar fashion to QOTN’s. Occasional mega totals were lost in among a sea of guff. This is also their third weekly triumph. They challenged for the highest weekly score prize with a 121 point total in GW35 and won the February manager of the month off the back of an 86 point haul in GW27 – the 1,226th best score in the world that week. Chappers regularly jumped a million in rank one week only to plummet back to where they started the next.

Player of the week – Nathaniel Mendez-Laing – Cardiff City – 16 points

Only 3,002 players benefited from Mendez-Laing’s weekly high in the entire game. He claims Cardiff’s fourth weekly player accolade, two more than the “team” they beat this week, Manchester United. In fact, United only managed two player awards, joint equal lowest with Fulham and Huddersfield. Cardiff went down on a deserved high given the tragedy that beset them earlier in the season.

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

Schar’s third player award – one more than Manchester United. An impressive return for a cut price Newcastle defender who only played two thirds of the season’s games. Newcastle were on the right side of a typical GW38 thumping with the Swiss scoring, keeping a clean sheet and collecting top bonus.

Twat of the week – Jose Holebas – Watford – -4 points

Picked up the first twat of last season and the last of this – plus a few more in between I think. This list isn’t complete without an appearance from Jose. Well done son. You made it.

Goal of the week – Jefferson Lerma. Screamer 1m48s.

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.

January Manager of the Month – Paul Hawkins – Aribo Haribo – 257 points

They clung on in the end, but last season’s champs and last week’s manager of the week make it over the line to be January’s manager of the month. They pinched it by a point and that point came courtesy of their bench boost. One single solitary point from a bench boost would otherwise be a disaster, but in this case…? Although I’m sure Aribo were hoping for a little more. And that’s one chip they won’t be able to play come double gameweek time. Nevertheless it earns them their regular place on the role of honour and £40.

Manager of the week – Dorine Reacher – Queen of the North – 71 points

There were goals around this week, but scores stayed relatively average. QOTN were the only team to tip the 70 point barrier proving you don’t have to captain Mo Salah every week to earn a big score. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s 12 points doubled to 24 in a blank week for the Liverpool forward. PEA’s fixture against Cardiff was always likely to provide more points, but the majority of us feared Salah too much. QOTN already have a cup bye. That draw will be made imminently

Player of the week – Josh King – Bournemouth – 16 points

It was an off week for the top six, perhaps explaining the fair to middling end totals. Bournemouth stuffed Chelsea, keeping a clean sheet in the process – their second in a row. Everton and Wolves were the only other two teams not to concede – three teams hardly known for the clean sheet prowess. Newcastle and Liverpool restricted the City and Liverpool assets respectively. Josh King returned the highest score contributing to three of Bournemouth’s four goals. It’s his third double figure score and he moves onto eight goals for the season. Well worth a look given Callum Wilson is likely to be missing a few games with injury.

Bargain of the week – Fernando Llorente – Tottenham Hotspur – 12 points

It’s been a mixed start to Llorente’s run in the Spurs side. An own goal in his first match was followed up by two cup defeats. And he could have had a hat trick of sitters last night. It doesn’t look as if Spurs are planning to bring anyone else in to cover Harry Kane’s absence, so Llorente looks likely to get starts. He played alongside Son against Watford, finally managing to score in the right end and assisting his South Korean team mate.

Twat of the week – Lucas Digne – Everton – -2 points

Double twat alert. He follows up a 25 yard own goal with a 12 minute sending off. Brilliant twatness. Consecutive weeks of twatdom is rare, normally reserved for Jose Holebas and Kyle Naughton. He joins an exclusive club – all of them full/wing backs. Actually – lets go for triple twat. He’s been brought into so many teams and then there’s a timely announcement of an Everton double gameweek. He’ll only play in one game. Well done Lucas. Twisted fantasy league.

Goal of the week – Calum Chambers.

Manager of the week – Queen of the North – Dorine Reacher – 97 points (7 goals)

Two managers reached a whopping 97 points this week. King Raggg climb back up to 13th with their haul. Five players posted double figure returns, with Aguero as captain, Sane as their other pointsworthy City asset, Arnautovic and Richarlison finding the net and Ben Chilwell hitting an assist and clean sheet double. Raggg’s fringe players scored slightly better, but QOTN’s big hitters hit big. As well as Richarlison’s brace, they became the first player in living memory to benefit from Alvaro Morata’s existence – and stuck the armband on Raheem Sterling. The in-form Anthony Martial added another, posting his third double figure score in four outings. QOTN climb 10 places as a result.

At the top the gap has closed. Decidedly average weeks from Da Pitch and Da Albion have let Neil Madrid in particular sneak back into close contention. And an 80+ score from 2017 champs, The Craggy Islanders, has seen them rise to their highest position of the season so far

Player of the week – Raheem Sterling – Manchester City – 21 points

More people captained Sergio Aguero this week than any other and he didn’t disappoint. Unless you also had Sterling. In which case there were 16 more points to be had with the armband. Sterling overtakes Aguero in the overall points standings as a result, moves to within two of Eden Hazard and claims the highest weekly player score for the season thus far. And he’s still only in 7% of teams, which is a very low ownership given his scoring power. Those who think he’s at risk of rotation, he’s started nine of the eleven games so far, and returned in seven of them. Those put off by the asking price might want to reconsider.

Bargain of the week – Raul Jiminez – Wolverhampton Wanderers – 12 points

Jiminez has been ticking over quite nicely as Wolves’ first choice striker scoring between 4 and 5 points a game on average. This was his highest return despite it being in a game in which they lost. He looks nailed on to start every week and although they’re not scoring loads of goals, the ones they do score generally involve him.

Twat of the week – Wesley Hoedt – Southampton – -3 points

Our first double twat of the week. Hoedt’s last appearance on the roll of dishonour came after he bundled an own goal in against Liverpool a few weeks back. Not wanting to give the Scousers an unfair advantage in the title race, he’s gone and done the same thing against Manchester City. Southampton play Chelsea in GW21.

Goal of the week – Richarlison (1st goal). His second was pretty good too.
