It looked like an even split of managers hoping for either a Harry Kane week or a Romelu Lukaku week. Everton welcomed Sunderland, while Spurs had Stoke to contend with. The odds may have been slightly with Lukaku, but it was Kane who provided the bigger points haul – 20 in total – 40 if you had him as captain. Lukaku’s goal came as welcome relief to those who went with the Everton striker, but come mid-afternoon Sunday, that would have been no consolation has a whole host of teams came sailing past carrying the Spurs forward and their 70+ scores.

Our weekly winner, monthly winner and most of the teams that advanced to the Buckets Cup quarter finals all had Kane, and most had him with the armband.

No-one could top Bermie United, whose unwavering faith in Leicester City finally paid off with a mindbending final total of 92 points. And all achieved whilst the manager is biking round ‘Nam for charity. Maybe Claudio is with him. Last season’s holy trinity of Vardy, Mahrez and Drinkwater contributed 23 points on top of the 40 from Kane. They made one transfer in gameweek four, and only managed to put out nine players for the weekend. Classic ghostship.

Uriah’s deserve a mention. Playing the game properly, they amassed 88 points. As well as captain Kane, they benefited from Christian Eriksen’s assists and another goal scoring performance from Gareth McAuley. He’s West Brom’s second top scorer, the league’s top scoring defender and moves into sixth place on the defender charts.

The manager of the month changed hands dramatically at the final reckoning. Both Lukaku and Kane had carried RG XV to the top of the monthly table before Monday’s game – they were 9th after last week’s fixtures. RG also had McAuley – and Seamus Coleman, who contributed anther double figure total with a seventh consecutive scoring week. Yet it wasn’t enough to hold off Rico United who pipped them by a point and have Matt Phillips to thank – for not playing. Rico utilised the bench boost expertly. Captain Phillips defaulted to vice captain Alli, and the extra eight points carried them past RG to the prize. They’re our first double month winner.

Our cup quarter finalists have been decided. FC Caligula will not defend their trophy, falling to Release The Hounds, who will take on Jarvis FC in the next round. Rico’s month winning total was enough to see them through to play Upper Bullens. Bakerlona are the lowest ranked team left in, creeping through in a battle of the ghost teams. They face league leaders Aquamar, who only just squeezed through themselves with the second lowest cup score of the week. Joey Bosa and Shoelace Untied make up the draw. Aquamar are the only top 10 team left in the competition and there are more bottom half than top half teams remaining.

 

Player of the week – Harry Kane – 20 points. Another hat trick. Time for a few weeks off now, eh Harry.

Bargain of the week – Idrissa Gueye – 10 points. Everton’s Kante. The scoring will stop here.

Donkey of the week – Ashley Barnes – -1 points. Another cheapo striker’s honeymoon period is over.

Goal of the week – Danny Drinkwater. They won’t get relegated.

Jetty City, for the second consecutive week, win manager of the week. They were the only team to manage a 50+ score during the drab midweek. This weekend they almost hit a century. Had they played their perfect XI or played their bench boost they’d have got past the 100 point mark and achieved the highest weekly score.

They were one of the few teams who went with a Lukaku/Defoe double pronged attack, captaining the Belgian, and picking up 55 points from their strike force along. That’s more points from two players than most teams managed with their full XI – the teams that unluckily had neither striker in their line up. There were plenty of teams carrying Lukaku, most notably our top two, Aquamar and When Harry Met Alli, who both handed him the armband.

Aquamar were involved in the biggest tie of the preliminary round of the Buckets Cup, coming up against sixth placed Kebab Eaters United and triumphing 71-64. It’s unlucky on Kebab Eaters who were the second highest scoring losers of the round. Shoelace crept through scoring only 35 points to Bazza 28 United’s 30. No Fuchs Given and 4 Fuchs Ake’s victories have set up a Fuchs derby in the first round proper, whilst the closest tie of the round saw Hedgehog’s beat Uriah’s on goals scored, 5 to 4 – Lukaku the difference again. All results and revised first round draw are on the Buckets Cup page.

 

Player of the week – Romelu Lukaku – 21 points. Cue kneejerk Lukaku transferring across the board.

Bargain of the week – Lamine Kone – 13 points. Palace doomed.

Donkey of the week – Jeff Hendrick – -2 points. He lasted six minutes.

Goal of the week – Eden Hazard.

Congratulations to DJ Daz who finally poked their head over the precipice of our accidental relegation zone and made it on to page 1. They collected 73 points, the highest total of the weekend. It was an impressive score too, with most of the rest of the league finishing with scores in and around the 40’s and 50’s. Their defence picked up 30 points, as did their trio of Chelsea players. Good old Diego Costa came through as captain, despite finally picking up that fifth booking. He got his usual goal and a solitary bonus mark to boost his captain total to 12. And he gets Christmas off. He probably deserves it.

Second highest score came from Uriah’s. They were probably the team to suffer most at the hands of Sergio Aguero’s sending off a few weeks ago, dropping from 1st to 12th as a result. They’ve clawed their way back up to 5th off the back of a 68 point score this week. They’re still 60 odd points off the lead. There’s a spread developing at the top of the table and our top two, The Craggy Islanders and Yeboah’s Right Foot, are gradually opening up a lead on the rest of us.

 

Player of the weekend – Patrick Van Aanholt – 15 points. Good goal too.

Bargain of the weekend – Daniel Amartey – 10 points. Rescuing Leicester….

Donkey of the week – Jamie Vardy – -2 points – …from this loon.

Goal of the week – Jay Rodriguez. Another likely GOTS contender.

We have our first gap opening up at the top of the table. We’ve a two team brekaway. Uriah Rennie 2nd XI and Queen Of The North move past the 700 point mark with healthy weekly scores of 65 and 66. The gap between QOTN and The Craggy Islanders in 3rd is 23 points. Then only 13 points separate the next nine teams. In fact, an inspired captain choice and prevailing wind could see teams as far down as maybe Rip Roaring Reds in 17th climb the league and land somewhere in the top ten and within shooting distance of the prize money.

November manager of the month goes to Greenyteamy who held off challenges from a number of teams to hold on to the lead they’d established after last week’s matches. Only Yeboahs Right Foot and Hedgehog Corpse of those featured in the monthly table appear in the overall top ten. This may explain the tightly packed nature of the mid table. Other than our leading pair and Hedgehogs, the rest of our top ten had a fairly uninspiring week in which they limped to an around-average score. Much the same as last week. And the week before.

Buckets stalwarts, Romeoshondavan, scored the highest weekly score. More than half of their 70 point total came courtesy of old faithfuls Sergio Aguero (as captain) and Alexis Sanchez. Before the week started, Philippe Coutinho was not only the most picked player in the game, but also the most transferred in and most popular captain of the week. He lasted 36 minutes. The rap he took to his ankle looks like it might rule him out until the New Year. There was potential for a Sunderland trouncing at the hands of the Liverpool midfield, but it never transpired, and left a lot of managers cursing their luck.

The nine goal thriller served up by Swansea and Palace provided us with six of the ten players who managed double figure scores this week. They’re not among the most popular teams with fantasy managers. I know a couple of Buckets teams have Christian Benteke clogging up their attack. His ownership across the whole game is only at 6%. More surprisingly perhaps is that Gylfi Sigurdsson appears in only 5.2% of teams in the game as a whole. Maybe his value seems a little high. But, he’s a top ten midfielder, has played virtually every minute of Swansea’s last nine games and has contributed meaningful points in seven of them. Basically if Swansea score, he’s usually somewhere in the mix.

 

Player of the week – Fernando Llorente – 15 points. Collected in 25 minutes.

Bargain of the week – Leroy Fer – 14 points. His 5th and 6th goals of the season. Only Hazard and Sanchez have more in the midfield.

Donkey of the week – Kyle Naughton – -1 points. A clean sweep. His fourth donkey in three years.

Goal of the week – Pedro. Finally worth considering him for your fantasy team. At 3m25s

A disastrous week for Neil Madrid. They fell completely out of contention for the October manager of the month award and relinquished their lead at the top, scoring a comparatively low 54 points compared to the majority of their pace-setting rivals who finished the weekend posting scores in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

Most notably, Uriah’s, who jumped from 5th to 1st with 94 points – a score that wins them the October manager of the month award.

And The Craggy Islanders, who are the top scoring team of the week with 95 points – which is also the highest weekly score of the season so far.

Roughly one in forty of all the managers in the game dispensed of Sergio Aguero in the last fortnight. That suggests at least one of us did too. Most leading Buckets managers held on to him it seems, although not many were prepared to offer him the captain’s armband. Uriah’s did, and it was this decision that boosted their score more than any other. Add to that an almost complete set of clean sheets, two assists and two goals out of the midfield and another double figure score courtesy of Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku was the key to the Islanders’ success, collecting 24 points as captain, backed up by Aguero’s 16 point haul. Tom Heaton, who is established as the number one keeper in the game, Alexis Sanchez and the in-form number 10, Joe Allen, added double figure amounts.

 

Player of the week – Ilkay Gundogan – 18 points. One to watch – a regular starter now?

Bargain of the week – James McArthur – 15 points. Palace’s best performer by a mile.

Donkey of the week – Craig Dawson – -1 points. The pricier of those defenders on the receiving end of a four goal defeat.

Goal of the week – Sergio Aguero (his second goal). He’s finished.
