Buckets Cup 1st round

Most of the biggest scoring teams taking part in this round of the cup found their way through to the next round. This week saw the second highest average gameweek score across the whole game, so 80’s, 90’s and some 100+ totals were always going to be needed to help teams progress. Spare a thought for Iamgroot, who scored 80, but were still knocked out.  They would have been the lowest placed team left in the competition. Title challengers, Brexiter City were able to progress with 69 points. The next round has drawn Brexiter together with league leaders Hornets in an intriguing (cliche) top of the table clash.

Manager of the week – Upper Bullens – Andy Taylor – 111 points

We had three 100+ scores this week including the second highest gameweek score of the season. Bullens’ 111 points is also their second manager of the week award. They’ve been hard to come by this season with Greenyteamy the only other team to achieve a double weekly nod. It makes you wonder how they’re still languishing in 32nd place.

Of course this and the other century scores were achieved with the help of Manchester City’s five goal haul aganst Leicester which saw Sergio Aguero notch a long overdue four goal blitz. The potential is always there – he normally gets one in a season. Bullens captained him and picked up another 20 points from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling to add to Aguero’s 42. There was an inevitable double figure contribution from Mohamed Salah and a slightly less expected one from Oumar Niasse, who seems to have worked his way to the front of the pecking order in Everton’s attack again. Kebab Eaters and To Elland Back also hit centuries, both captaining Aguero, and with help from the likes of Roberto Firmino, Ben Davies and penalty demon, Luca Milovejovic.

Hornets are back on top after a week away. For one night only, after Saturday’s games, Gotta Light had found their way to the number one spot, climbing up from 7th. Again proving how congested it is. It’s still anyone’s title.

Player of the week – Sergio Aguero – 21 points

Aaron Ramsey equalled the highest weekly player score last week – a record held by Sergio Aguero since September. That record stood at 20 points. Ramsey’s time at the (joint) top lasted a week. Sergio wanted the accolade all to himself. Four goals and all the bonus marks gets you 21 points.

Bargain of the week – Steve Mounie – 15 points

I predicted in gameweek 15 that Steve Mounie would score big again in GW31. Not a bad shout – I was only four gameweeks out. His third double figure total of the season and just his fifth goal came 11 weeks since his last. It would have been four points more had he not cruelly been robbed by a dubious decision to award an own goal to Steve Cook.

Twat of the week – Harry Maguire – -1 points

It had to be one of those on the receiving end of the Manchester City hammering. Maguire gets it as the most popular and most expensive route into the Leicester back four. The booking didn’t help either. It’s harsh on Harry as we all know the real twat of the week was Chris Smalling, who took a dive in his own half which resulted in Newcastle’s winning goal and snuffed out Manchester United’s faint title challenge. Well done Chris.

Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero (4th goal).  

You never know – he might get a player of the season nomination this season (he’s never had one!). 2m30s.

Manager of the week – To Elland Back – Alan Hardy – 75 points

It definitely wasn’t the week for changing your team. You didn’t need to get Philippe Coutinho in and you didn’t need to get rid of Harry Kane. The Liverpool player, along with Roberto Firmino, was inexplicably left out of their squad for the Merseyside derby, having between the pair of them scored five in Europe in the midweek. The omens were with Kane and Spurs this week, having beaten Stoke by four goals in each of the last four games they’ve played against each other. This 5-1 victory included two goals for the games most frustrating player, who is still somehow second in the overall scoring charts. To Elland Back triple captained him, which almost guarantees you manager of the week status if you pick the right man.

Player of the week – Son Heung-Min – 16 points

It was Son who really shone for Spurs though. Last season it took him a while to get going and similarly this time round it’s only now he’s getting a run of games that he’s starting to contribute decent points returns. It looks like he might permanently fill that third attacking midfielder berth behind Kane in the Spurs line up as he did to great effect for the second half of the previous campaign. And at £7.9 million he’s a decent price for another midfield headache.

Bargain of the week – Steve Mounie – 13 points

Mounie’s only other two goals of the season came in week one. Nothing has happened since – not even an assist. We get frustrated by Harry Kane’s week on week off schedule. This bloke’s working to a week on, 15 weeks off schedule. Remember to pick him again in gameweek 31.

Twat of the week – Marvin Zeegelaar – -2 points

A short lived honeymoon period for the once unknown Watford defender of five gameweeks ago. The impressive run of four games, two assists, two clean sheets and three bonus points has now been brought to a shuddering halt by one red and a three game ban. We may never see him again.

Goal of the week – Jermain Defoe. See what happens when you pick him.

No vid though?! Again?

Manager of the week –  Fun Lovren Criminals – 88 points.

It happens so often that the last game of the weekend saves a gameweek. Romelu Lukaku’s 13 point haul, doubled to 26 with the armband, was the score that took Fun Lovren Criminals to the Buckets summit for week one and win them the first manager of the week accolade. Lukaku and Harry Kane vied for top ownership and top captain choice for this opening round of fixtures. Those opting for the United forward reaped the rewards. Kane lovers had the added disappointment of seeing their man booked, and thus picking up a measly two points as skipper. Impressive Premier League club debuts from Mohamed Salah, Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac also contributed to FLC’s early lead, and the performance of all of those four players in particular bodes well for their fantasy careers.

Player of the week – Ahmed Hegazi – 15 points.

Best debut of the lot came from West Brom’s new Egyptian centre back, Ahmed Hegazi. Tony Pulis should just play a 1-10-0-0 and be done with it. No need for attackers. Don’t be surprised if a defender ends up as West Brom’s top scorer this season. Keep 13 clean sheets, score five or six goals, get to 40 points in March, start planning your holidays. Easy.

Bargain of the week – Sam Vokes – 13 points.                                                               Twat of the week – Gary Cahill – -3 points

Week one is never without it’s surprise results. Burnley sold their main striker the evening before. Their away record last season was shocking. Chelsea, the Champions, only lost twice at home last season, kept 16 clean sheets and beat their opponents 3-0 almost a year ago. When it goes tits up in week one it feels so much worse than at any other time of the season, probably because you’ve been aching over your selection since mid July. But no-one could have seen this coming. Although, as much as I don’t see Sam Vokes clogging up too many forward lines, I also don’t see too many Chelsea defenders in any of our squads either. Are they priced too highly? Shoelace however, who are propping us all up, were unfortunate enough to plump for Cahill. But for Lukaku, and a scoring start from Sergio Aguero, mid to low priced strikers came out on top. As well as Vokes, honorable mentions should go to Steve Mounie and some bloke called Wayne Rooney.

Goal of the week – Wayne Rooney.

Lets start with a cracking header – 1m06s.
