September manager of the month – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – Trev Reams – 286 points
BDPA1 and Perfidious Albion continue their nip and tuck battle at the top of the table. Albion earned more points this week to snatch the overall lead back, but it wasn’t quite enough to claim the September monthly prize. Only four points separate the two teams at the top and both find themselves in the top 6,000 worldwide. I’m not sure we’ve had two better starters. Third place are almost 40 more points back. Despite that, we’re doing better as a league as a whole. Last season at this stage twelve teams had passed the 400 point stage. This season twenty teams have passed that mark. This season’s top 10 are all 30+ points better off than last season’s equivalent teams.

Manager of the week – Thelma And Luiz – Trevor Gordon – 99 points
Serial prize botherers and winners of this season’s best team name, if such a thing existed, Thelma And Luiz (Thelma is presumably Gary Cahill’s real name), are this week’s highest climbers and posters of the most impressive wildcard total to date. After making a squillion changes, their near century total came about by dispensing of the services of the price tumbling Salah and Mendy among others and bringing in double figure scoring form horses Matt Doherty, Harry Kane, Johann Berg Gudmunsson and Raheem Sterling. They’ve achieved a top 2,000 worldwide weekly score and rose almost 700,000 places overall – that’s 15 places in Bucketsworld.
Player of the week – Harry Maguire – Leicester City – 18 points
We’ve a couple of whipping boy teams developing. Cardiff, Huddersfield and Newcastle were all on the receiving end of yet another defeat, all conceding two. Newcastle allowed Harry Maguire a clean sweep – goal, assist, clean sheet and top bonus…
Bargain of the week – Johann Berg Gudmunsson – Burnley – 13 points
…while Cardiff almost afforded the same luxury to Johann Berg Gudmunsson. They scored a goal to deprive him of the clean sheet point. He moves onto four assists for the season, becoming the highest assisting midfielder in the game as Burnley’s season continues on it’s now upward trajectory.
Twat of the week – Victor Lindelof – Manchester United – -2 points
Most of the players don’t like the manager and the manager doesn’t like most of the players. And the ones he’s left with are shit at fantasy league.
Goal of the week – Daniel Sturridge.
