Buckets Cup preliminary round

The first round draw for the Buckets Cup is now complete. Click the cup link to view it. In the preliminary round, our bottom side Ross’s Champions had an easy victory over Your Ad Here to progress. They’ll now face last year’s winners, Puddle Splash Van. Spare a thought for Nashton Villa, who despite coming out of the double gameweek with 92 points, came up against the near perfect 120 points gained by Shoelace. I think in real life scoring that’s a 7-6.

Manager of the week – Caroline Strong – Shoelace Untied – 120 points

A bumper score thanks to the right double gameweek picks and the added bonus of just about every other team member contributing something. It doesn’t get any smoother than that. If you’re going to pick double gameweekers you may as well pick the two highest scoring and then captain one of them. There were plenty of other big scores around, most of whom had Aguero, but adding Laporte to the mix was the cherry on the cake. And if you captained Sane who was hauled off after 59 minutes of the Everton game – I feel your pain.

Player of the week – Aymeric Laporte – Manchester City – 20 points

He was always likely to get the most minutes of any outfield player, having played just about every game of the Premier League season so far. He’s had many more minutes than any of his outfield team mates in sky blue. The other nailed on double starter was Ederson. I’m sure most owners would have settled for one clean sheet – the City defence haven’t been the most watertight recently. But to return a goal, an assist, a clean sheet and three bonus points is the stuff of dreams.

Bargain of the week – Jeffrey Schlupp – Crystal Palace – 14 points

Schglup is listed as a defender but when he has played he’s played up top. Wilfried Zaha is back for the next game so this is probably a one game burst for him.

Twat of the week – Mathias Jorgensen – Huddersfield – 0 points

Huddersfield were so crap this week they shipped five and didn’t pick up a single booking. Meaning their most owned and most expensive defender carries the can of the weekly twat. Next time you ship five, at least give someone a kick and look as if you care.

Goal of the week – Andre Gomes.

Top of the table – But Da Pitch Ain’t 1 – Trev Reams – 1295 points

Only three teams have lead Buckets this season and each have found themselves at the top over the festive fixtures. Da Pitch have regained top spot following their performance over New Year. Neil Madrid had climbed back to the top after the weekend’s fixtures, claiming the lead back from Perfidious Albion, who’d risen back to the summit after the Boxing Day games. They form a breakaway top four with The Craggy Islanders, separated by 10 points and just over 40 points clear of the chasing pack.

Manager of the week – Romeoshondavan – Rob Hewer – 86 points

A couple of big hitters offered up good captain choices this week. Romeo’s could have gone with either Kane, PEA or Sane and they’d still have posted a decent score and climbed the league. They opted for Son, who was their highest scorer – and why wouldn’t he have been?  He’s outscored everyone else over the last six weeks by some distance. Shame he’s buggering off to the Asian Cup, although I guess we should be grateful that he had his departure delayed. So we get one more gameweek out of him. If you haven’t got him now, there’s probably not much point in going there.

Player of the week – Troy Deeney – Watford – 15 points

It played out like a basketball game for a period in the first half, then everyone got bored of that and started hacking lumps out of each other. Bournemouth, despite having what seems like a good season, really can’t defend for toffee. Only Burnley, Cardiff and Fulham have conceded more. Even Huddersfield scored against them. They let in four and five in their last two games and now three against Watford and two to Deeney.

Bargain of the week – Angus Gunn – Southampton – 11 points

Surprisingly drafted in ahead of Alex McCarthy who I wouldn’t say has been in bad form of late. If anything he’s been the reason that Southampton have kept some defeats looking semi-respectable. However, I’m all for an even cheaper goalkeeper getting a run of starts. Check also Vicente Guaita’s promotion to Palace number one and David Button’s temporary residence as the Brighton keeper of choice.

Twat of the week – Christopher Schindler – Huddersfield Town – -3 points

Huddersfield’s season looks doomed. Luckily the game Schindler will miss as a resulkt of this sending off is the FA Cup game at thew weekend. He’s arguably been their best source of points and that’s really pushing it. Only four of their players top the £5 million barrier and still no-one wants them.

Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero.

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.

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.

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.
