Buckets Cup 2nd round

It was a low scoring week all round and there wasn’t much to choose between any of the second round ties as a result. We had our first count back to decide a game. INIT and Da Pitch couldn’t be separated by goals, bonus or assists, so in a rule I just made up this afternoon Da Pitch progress due to scoring more points in the last round. Sorry INIT – unless you were willing to meet and fight then I figured this was the fairest way of doing things. Da Pitch advancing sets up a juicy looking quarter final match up against the Craggy Islanders who are hot their opponent’s heels at the top of the league table. We’ve also seen our first score to nil in the Buckets Cup. Thelma And Luiz, it seems, are no more. They’ve disappeared from the league and so Neil Madrid progress with the lowest winning score of the round.

Manager of the week – Atletico Chappers – Richard Chapman – 86 points

The worldwide average was only 35 points this week – a score that most Buckets teams hovered in and around. Atletico Chappers’ 86 point haul is twice as many as most other teams in the league and sees them climb 12 places into 30th – a (possibly) unprecedented leap at this stage of the season. Chappers brought in Gerard Deulefeu last week, obviously in anticipation of him posting the highest individual score of the season thus far, with his hat trick, assist and big bonus contribution for Watford against Cardiff. It’s not like there weren’t goals around this week. Six goals and four clean sheets in a week in which saw an average of three goals a game isn’t totally out of the ordinary. There were just too many blanks from the game’s elite bunch.

Player of the week – Gerard Deulefeu – Watford – 23 points

He’s literally done nothing for eight gameweeks. From what I can see, only two Buckets teams had him. You can probably pick them out. Apparently three players in the whole of the game had the gumption to triple captain him. Sometimes mad people are lucky.

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

Unsurprisingly the other must-have player came from the same game. Deeney hasn’t done anything for seven gameweeks since his brace against Bournemouth. Only one Buckets team had him from what I can see. It’s not either of the teams with Deulefeu, so you should be able to work out which one that is as well.

Twat of the week – Tommy Smith – Huddersfield – -3 points

I’m running out of disparaging things to write about Huddersfield twats. Sent off in the 23rd minute. I imagine there weren’t too many managers suffering as a result of this. Does anyone own a Huddersfield defender anyway?

Goal of the week – No idea, was there one?

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.

At 3.30s
