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?

Manager of the month – Dean Cripps – Kompany & Co – 289 points

The Vinegar Pissers lead the way going into the weekend but it’s Kompany & Co that take the prize. They also switched places – 3rd and 4th – in the overall league. Kompany’s key player was Nacho Monreal. The Arsenal defender added 15 points to their score. And you probably hadn’t noticed, but that’s four shut-outs on the spin now from Wenger’s team.

Manager of the week – Stu Smith – FTM – 91 points

FTM were probably hoping for a few goals from Harry Kane, a clean sheet from Phil Jones, another dominant Man City display and maybe a piece of magic from Philippe Coutinho to amass a healthy score this week. They got all those things, but the 16 ridiculous points picked up by Marouanne Fellaini probably wasn’t expected, and it’s what pushed them to the top of the weekly charts just ahead of Neil Madrid, who gave us the first glimpse of the potential power of the fee hit.

Player of the week – Marouane Fellaini – 16 points.

This will never happen again. Not even Marouane Fellaini has Marouane Fellaini in his fantasy team.

Bargain of the week – Stephen Ward – 12 points

Second in the bonus charts for defenders and third in the bonus charts overall, Ward and the Burnley back line look the best of the cheap options in that area of the park at the moment.

Twat of the week – Tommy Smith – 0 points

It’s hard to believe that still no Palace players have landed at the bottom of the weekly charts given the amount of goals they’re shipping. Luckily for them there’s always someone slightly more expensive shipping as many goals each week. Palace players are so uninvolved they’re not even getting sent off.

Goal of the week – Philippe Coutinho.
