Manager of the week – Nashton Villa – Jaime Nash – 102 points

Seven clean sheets and 30 goals set up plenty of high scoring opportunities this week and for the first time this season the century barrier was broken. As a result a new highest weekly score target has been set. An honourable mention must go to Greenyteamy who leap 11 places into the top five with a whopping 100 point return. Last week’s highest scorers missed out on two consecutive manager of the week awards by two points. They are however way out in front in the chase for the November manager of the month. The only team with a chance of catching them appear to be this week’s highest scorers, Nashton Villa. Nashton’s 102 points saw them jump 16 places to 16th overall. Both placed the armband on Mohamed Salah – Nashton threw their triple captain chip at the Egyptian. That extra 16 points was the difference as Greeny’s had more double figure scorers, including our player of the week and two of the the top three gameweek attackers.

Player of the week – Eden Hazard – 18 points

It was another week of frustration for those opting for Harry Kane as captain, and to a degree, Romelu Lukaku. And it was a week of some notable point scoring comebacks that are sure to throw spanners in the works and give selection headaches for the weeks to come. Paul Pogba and Philippe Coutinho made scoring returns from injury – and it might be worth keeping an eye on Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Most ominous is Eden Hazard’s player of the week contribution. It becomes his third point-scoring performance of the last four games. Also, Chelsea’s fixtures, following a tricky trip to Anfield this weekend, hit a purple patch all the way through to the new year. Definitely one to watch.

Bargain of the week – Callum Wilson – 17 points

Another gradual comeback crowned by a match-winning performance and only the third Premier League hat trick of the season. Callum Wilson made a blistering start to his Premier League career only for a serious injury to stop him in his tracks – and that included a hat trick against West Ham in the early part of the 2015/16 season. So don’t rush out to buy him just yet. He could lose a leg next weekend.

Twat of the week – Simon Francis – -2 points

A second successive clean sheet for Bournemouth, but one that won’t be enjoyed by those that saw an opportunity to bring in this particular defensive asset. The fact they went on to score two more goals after the dismissal might make it worse. He really didn’t need to put himself in that position after all.

Goal of the week – Kevin De Bruyne. City’s 5th goal of the week winner.

Our leaders, FC Caligula, not only win the weekly award, but also become the first team to pass the 1500 point mark. Their 58 point total was the best of a low scoring week overall. Golden Boys dropped out of the top four for the first time since football was invented making way for Atletico Chappers and former champs, Rocky Ba Bauer. And the February Manager of the Month is….

3 Release The Hounds Paul Mitchell 39 249
4 Below Par Paul Bentz 39 247
5 Baker Bum Boys Lewis Baker 45 246
6 Atlético Chappers Richard Chapman 55 244
6 FC Caligula Ajay Supeda 58 244

 

…The Hardy Boys. Rocky Ba Bauer almost pegged them back but the reduced fixture list and subsequent low scores made it difficult for the chasing teams.

Congratulations to the 2892 participants in the worldwide game who took a punt on Marcus Rashford. The Manchester United youngster followed up his European scoring debut with a Premiership scoring debut. Two goals and an assist bagged him 16 points to make him player of the week.

The preliminary and first round proper of the Buckets Cup has been drawn. Click the link to see who you’ve got. Typically, FC Caligula equaled Pretty Schitty City’s 58 points from gameweek five, meaning I had to do a goal count back to determine which team got the last available bye. City scored three goals during their winning week – Caligula only managed two this week, so they go into the prelim and City take their place in round one. The Cup kicks off with the midweek games making up gameweek 28.

 

Player of the week – Marcus Rashford – 16 points. Federico Macheda. Adnan Januzaj.

Bargain of the week – Simon Francis – 9 points. I’m not sure any Buckets managers have him either.

Donkey of the week – James Chester – -1 points. Or him.

Goal of the week – Connor Wickham. Or him. Goal at 2m08s.

Too much Christmas pud maybe? A low scoring week in which Release The Hounds and SS3 both scored 56 points to be in contention for the manager of the week award. SS3 become the first team to pick up three weekly awards, scoring one more goal than RTH. The fact that only Romelu Lukaku of our super six contributed anything extra may explain the low scores. Riyad Mahrez and Mesut Ozil even dared to add a minus score to their finishing totals. Mahrez missed a penalty and Ozil was booked.

Laurent Koscielny and Petr Cech boosted SS3’s total. A risky punt on Cech as skipper yielded 20 points. SS3 may have expected a standard six point clean sheet haul, doubled to twelve. Thanks to Newcastle actually competing, Cech made six saves, which converted into two save points, which led to two more bonus points. The extra (possibly unexpected) eight points helped SS3 climb seven places in the table into the top ten and up to eighth.

 

Player of the week – Laurent Koscielny – 15 points. Toe poke and a clean sheet.

Bargain of the week – Jermain Defoe – 13 points. To move 7 points ahead of Villa.

Donkey of the week – Simon Francis – -2 points. Lasted less time than Geoff Cameron, and is owned by more people.

Goal of the week – Carles Gil. In a week of crackers…as much for the ridiculous headless chicken run that set it up.
