The world's turned upside down

What a week! Liverpool do a City on Arsenal. Free scoring City can't find the net for the second week on the trot. Fulham who couldn't beat struggling League One side Sheffield United manage to get a draw at Old Trafford, but maybe that's not as big a surprise as it once was. West Ham win away. Swansea win a game and Hazard fulfils his potential in style.

In our league Jay Egersdorff just about hangs onto his first place with Sachin Ruparelia only 4 points behind him. Pari Passu’s Bernie Wilcox drops yet another place to 4th with Phu Ngoc pipping him by a single point with a magnificent 78 points on the week with his midfield alone bringing in nearly 50 points. If only Phu had chosen Hazard as his captain instead of vice captain he would have almost gone top. A new entry is ConSol’s Luis Cruz who did choose Hazard as his captain and scored an amazing 42 points of him alone. Well done Luis.

The top 10 are as follows:

Jay Egersdorff

Sachin Ruparelia

Phu Ngoc

Bernie Wilcox, Pari Passu

Matt Beedle

David Bloch

Eddie Dowling

Lawrence Chilver

Luis Cruz, ConSol Partners

Martin Scrivens

Manager of the Week

Another new name to these pages and with a huge 78 points in 9th place is the aforementioned Luis Cruz from ConSol Partners As we mentioned above, Luis was one of the few managers who had the bottle to not choose Suarez as his captain and went for Eden Hazard instead. This made all the difference to what was (y esperamos que usted no nos importa decir esto Luis) an otherwise a fairly mundane team selection.

!Muy bien hecho de todos modos Luis!

Whilst we loved the team name of Gary Mills (United Free Zone) we unfortunately couldn’t give him this weeks award because he fell a tad short of Guy Herbertson. Gay is in 99th place and last week was on Page 3. Sounds like Sam Fox all over again. With 53 points from two Chelski players alone, Guy scored an amazing 79 points.

Well done Guy! 

Taxi for...........

Yaya Toure

Having been replaced as the FL’s second highest points scorer by Eden Hazard, Yaya has been looking a little leggy recently. Without his hard working teammate, Fernandinho next to him Yaya has been having to get stuck in himself but on Saturday against Norwich Pellegrini actually put him in his old Barca holding role and let James Milner push on. Add to this the controversy surrounding Yaya’s kick on van Wolfswinkel and the possibility of retrospective action and you might think that Yaya needs a rest from your team. Hazard, Johnson and Lallana are the obvious replacements if you haven’t already got them, but Steven Gerrard might also be worth looking at given his performance on Saturday.
