Manager of the week – Ian Williams – Emergency Gap Jumper – 66 points

Two managers finished the week on 66 points but it was the Emergency Gap Jumpers who claim the weekly honours by virtue of scoring one more goal than The Craggy Islanders. Their four goals came from Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane – who, in the week when the majority ditched him as their go to captain, finally came good. Neither team have put themselves into contention for the November manager of the month. That still looks like a race between Greenyteamy and Nashton Villa, although a strong gameweek from Atletico Chappers has moved them to within striking distance.

At the top of the overall league, Hornets remain the team to catch – as they have done all season. The gap back to Fun Lovren Criminals stands at 34 points. Last year’s runners up, Despicable Mee, since gameweek 8, have moved from 19th to 15th to 11th to 8th to 5th – and now into third – and look set for another title challenge.

Player of the week – Marvin Zeegelaar – 14 points

Assisted two of Watford’s goals against Newcastle in only his second appearance for the club. He didn’t have a bad first week either getting clean sheet and bonus points in the victory over West Ham. There are lots of temptingly cheap Watford options springing up at the moment. Last week, Will Hughes, in only his second start, almost took the bargain award, and he added another eight points to his total this week. Interestingly, Watford have scored at least twice in every away game they’ve played this season. And I bet most managers would back the home defence for a clean sheet against them in most weeks. Don’t.

Bargain of the week – Charlie Austin – 13 points

There was little action on the striker front this week with only Austin bagging more than one goal. It’s his first start of the season after having only made a few minutes worth of substitute appearances in recent weeks. Saints had only scored four goals from open play before the weekend. If Austin can steer clear of the treatment room and cement a starting berth he should add to that total.

Twat of the week – Rajiv Van La Parra – -1 points

Waited until after the final whistle to engage in a bit of handbags with Leroy Sane, who can probably consider himself fortunate not to have a similar ban looming. With the amount of big point scoring midfielders active in the game at the moment we could do with the odd ban and/or injury being thrown in just to narrow down the choices a little bit.

Goal of the week – Xherdan Shaqiri.

Usually pops up with a few wonder goals per season (and little else). No vid though?!

Kebab Eaters are now the main challengers to Aquamar after recording the highest score of the weekend to leapfrog When Harry Met Alli and The Craggy Islanders into second place. They scored 88 points with nine players registering a score other than their basic appearance points. Harry Kane was brought in to accompany Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli – and that Spurs combination contributed 34 points. Kane played alongside fellow flat track bully, Romelu Lukaku, who also got his usual home goal against lesser opposition. And it seems nothing can stop Phil Jagielka scoring at the moment. Kebab Eaters took a chance on him grabbing his third goal in as many games – and it paid off.

 

Player ofthe week – Vincent Kompany – 14 points. Back, but for how long?

Bargain of the week – Phil Jagielka – 11 points. Lethal.

Donkey of the week – Sam Byram – -2 points. Sent off in a draw against Sunderland. Could you be any more of a donkey?

Goal of the week – Xherdan Shaqiri. If only he was fit for more than one month of a season.

It was one of those weekends where the form players and the big guns had a few days off. Only nine of us mustered a score over 50. The winning weekly total of 60 was the lowest of the season so far and was achieved by When Harry Met Alli, whose highest scores came from the more unlikley areas of their team. Clean sheets for Stoke and Watford and a first Premier League goal for Christian Fuchs contributed 21 of those points. Choosing Dimitri Payet as captain may not sound all that ridiculous, but the West Ham talisman’s slightly under the radar (but still pretty decent) start has been overshadowed somewhat by the overall form of his team. Although it’s two wins and two clean sheets on the spin now.

WHMA had slightly less bad luck with their elite bunch than everyone else it seems. Another blank for Aguero – that’s just two points in three weeks now – came in alongside an unexpected low return from Alexis Sanchez and just an assist from Romelu Lukaku. The weeks scoring is perhaps best summed up by the fact that despite Chelsea netting four times against Manchester United, Diego Costa was not among those goalscorers.

Player of the week – Xherdan Shaqiri – 15 points. Two lovely goals.

Bargain of the week – Scott Arfield – 12 points. Burnley strong at home

Donkey of the week – Eric Bailly – -1 points. Shit.

Goal of the week – Christian Fuchs. A close call with Shaqiri’s first.

There’s still no internet at Buckets HQ, so I’ve come in to work to write this. I don’t want to spend a minute more than I have to in this place on New Years Eve, so again, this is going to be brief.

Gaalacticos score 93 points to win week 19. Mesut Ozil was the right captain choice, scoring 14 points, doubled to 28. They gained a respectable 14 extra points playing their bench boost, with most of those points being earned by Marko Arnautovic. It’s a total which sees them climb nine places from 19th to 10th in the league. Golden Boys and Your Ad Here had made it past the 1000 point barrier after gameweek 18. A whole host of teams, Gaalacticos included, passed that milestone this week.

Your Ad Here are the December winners…

Neil Madrid lead the way before the Monday evening kick offs. Mesut Ozil’s performance guaranteed YAH the prize, outscoring Harry Kane, whom Madrid had chosen as their skipper. Both teams had identical Leicester and Man City players so Madrid had no chance of overtaking.

 

Player of the week – Mesut Ozil – 14 points. Now on 16 assists – twice as many as anyone else.

Bargain of the week – Gabriel – 14 points. Arsenal’s other scorer.

Donkey of the week – Nathan Ake – -2 points. Bargain of the week a fortnight ago.

Goal of the week – Xherdan Shaqiri. He says he meant it.
