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 – Neil Madrid – Neil Strong – 835 points

We’re thirteen weeks in. At some point over the weekend we hit the third-way mark – if such a thing exists. So far two teams have shared the top spot. We’ve had six weeks of Da Pitch and six weeks of Da Albion. We have a new leader to beckon in the middle third of the season and the mad scramble through December. Our fourth manager of the month prize will be dished out after the next gameweek and our new leader also sits at the top of that table. Neil Madrid hold a slender lead over 2017 champs, The Craggy Islanders, who’ve risen to their highest overall position as a result of their good month.

Manager of the week – Crazy Leg XI – David Caldicott – 74 points

Crazy Leg (formerly Crazylegs) also move into monthly contention with the highest score of this gameweek. Cannily spying the potential of Gylfi Sigurdsson against Cardiff bagged them 22 points. The Icelander was the only goalscorer in the game but duly picked up top bonus, and his clean sheet point as well, to total 22 with the armband. He has attacking returns in five of his last seven. Maybe you’ve only room for one Everton asset and it’s a tough choice between Richarlison and Sigurdsson. The Brazilian is in four times as many teams, probably as a result of him being played out of position as a centre forward and heads his team mate slightly in the form charts. Sigurdsson, however, despite being ever so slightly dearer, appears to be on all set pieces and is 10 points better off overall. Crazy Leg also kept faith in Aleksandar Mitrovic who scored his first goals for eight weeks. The Fulham striker had been almost universally binned during their slump to the foot of the table, losing almost half of his overall ownership and losing £0.4 million in price. Is it time to re-invest with Ranieri perhaps breathing new life into the team?

Player of the week – Leroy Sane – 19 points

City. City. City. Three players needed. Add Sane to the list of must haves. There was an idea that Guardiola didn’t fancy playing Sane and Mendy together. Well, now Mendy is out for three months, so does that guarantee him a starting berth? Certainly two of Sterling, Sane and Mahrez will play. Probably with the other coming off the bench. Starting on the bench in this team isn’t a bad thing. Most of the time City’s attacking subs have a positive effect and end up scoring or assisting themselves. Three players needed.

Bargain of the week – Aaron Mooy – Huddersfield Town – 16 points

Huddersfield have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks and there are cheap enough options in this team playing regularly that could make good bench warmers for the festive period. Mooy is one of them. Like Sigurdsson, he takes every free kick and corner. Unlike Sigurdsson, he’s not proving to be prolific. These are his first attacking contributions of the season and their defenders have scored more than their recognised attackers. Their defensive options are probably more tempting as they’re not averse to keeping the odd clean sheet and picking up the odd bonus point.

Twat of the week – James Maddison – Leicester City – -2 points

I think thankfully most of us ditched Maddison when his injury hit and hadn’t decided to take a punt and bring him back in. His points had dried up a little anyway with 40 of his 47 coming in the first seven gameweeks. He escapes a league ban, however, as Leicester play in the Milk Cup tonight.

Goal of the week – Heung-Min Son.

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.

Manager of the week – Perfidious Albion – Andrew Swift – 64 points

Two MOTW awards and one MOTM in the opening four gameweeks and into the top 30,000 in the world for Albion. The score could have been so much better with another 12 points possible from their benched players. Albion opted to replace Richarlison with Hazard, which should bode well for future weeks given Chelsea’s fixture run. Hazard has contributed a goal or assist in every game so far which is more impressive when you consider he’s only started two of them. Pretty much everyone else in the world chose to replace Richarlison with Theo Walcott. The curse of the most transferred-in-player strikes again – Walcott limped off before the hour mark and collected only one point. Which is three more than Richarlison did last week, so if you made that move, look at it from that point of view. The expected Aguero double hat trick didn’t materialise either, but at least the assist came which made some scores look more respectable than they otherwise would have been.

Player of the week – Cedric Soares – Southampton – 12 points

His starting value cheapness and the outside chance of some Southampton clean sheets tempted a lot of people in at the season start. But with 2 points in three games and the Saints defence looking pretty porous, many managers were losing interest pretty quickly. Then this.

Bargain of the week – Philip Billing – Huddersfield Town  – 9 points

The most impressive of the £4.5 million midfielders has made four starts, lasted the full 90 in each and now has a goal to his name. Billing is actually the top scoring midfielder in the £5 million and under price bracket with only four other players bettering his total at £5.5 million.

Twat of the week – Marcus Rashford – Manchester United – -2 points

Needs to play more for this to be of any concern to anybody.

Goal of the week – Kyle Walker.

August Manager of the Month – Perfidious Albion – Andrew Swift – 228 points 

Holding off a strong challenge from Penshaw Performers, Perfidious Albion claim the August prize, courtesy of scoring thirteen goals to their rivals’ eleven over the course of the month. The Performers jumped from 18th place to almost pip the Albion, who limped home as the third worst scoring team in the league this week. The Performers ignored Richarlison, unlike everybody else, and scored a massive 46 points with their defensive picks. Albion had benefited from Richarlison’s first two gameweeks and the three goals and five bonus points that had convinced the whole world to bring him in to their teams. The 102 point first week score was the perfect start and was the key to them holding on to win the monthly money.

Manager of the week – Cookie FC – Peter Cook – 83 points 

Unluckily for Penshaw they don’t get a weekly winner nod either. They scored the same amount of points as Cookie FC, but again lose out on goals scored. Cookie scored six to Penshaw’s three, as well as also turning in a sound defenseive performance, racking up 40 points from their back five.

Player of the week – Aleksandar Mitrovic – Fulham – 16 points

Fulham were the go-to team of the week and their four goal performance may change a lot of manager’s minds. Most of Fulham’s attacking regulars had begun to see price drops, including goal of the week man, Jean Michael Seri. Mitrovic remained a popular choice and will no doubt attract more buyers following this brace. His performance has seen a price rise and put him at the top of the strikers’ points charts.

Bargain of the week – Luciano Vietto – Fulham – 9 points

Fulham made six changes for the Burnley game, with Vietto surprisingly starting in place of Ryan Sessegnon. The on loan striker justified his pick with assists for both of Mitrovic’s goals. Burnley seem to be finding the Europa League and Thursday/Sunday schedule a tough slog at the moment. They play one Saturday game in the whole of the first two months of the season. And that’ll probably change if they qualify.

Twat of the week – Richarlison – Everton – -2 points

Here he is. The Wan Bissaka sending off was tolerable. He was only £4 million. It was hardly a stress getting him into your team and he’s only banned for one match. But this prick…! I’m so glad I changed my mind at the last minute. Click on any random Bucketeer – four out of five will have him sat there, in the middle of the pitch, with his big red triangle. All for kissing Adam Smith. Seems a bit harsh. But no sooner are we feeling all smug and upbeat about reaping the rewards than we’re wondering why we never looked to the other side of the Everton attack and plumped for Theo Walcott.

Goal of the week – Jean Michael Seri.

Clean sweep on the top awards for Fulham.
