No Sanchez or Costa.

So with Sanchez still out and Costa now absent for a further 2 games, captaincy was the big choice this weekend. We wouldn’t have thought that many would have been able to pick out an effective person from the Arsenal team and yet Ryan Roberts managed to pull a total of 49 points from 3 players, this is actually more than some of the teams totals in our league as well!

With Chelsea’s very own John Travolta look a like banned for 3 games, the question is now asked if it is worth subbing him out.  Is there better worth out there in the transfer market at the moment?  I don’t think many teams could afford to have an £11m sub for the next couple of games.

In our league we really did have a variation in point scoring with Page 1 ranging from Cody Royle’s Gigantes totalling 40 right the way through to the 100 from Ryan.

Jay Egersdorff takes a tumble having scored 45 points this week, and as a result of some obscure totals, it is all change in our league.  I don’t think that we have seen as many red and green arrows showing movement up and down for the majority of teams on every page.

The top 10 are as follows:

Oli Ottey – Goodman Masson

Sam Bisgrove
Ryan Roberts

Eddy Dowling
Jay Egersdorff
John West

Paul McCarthy

Marcus Francis

Neil Kane

Dawid M

Manager of the Week

It really is hard to look past Ryan Roberts and his Old Gold team.  Giroud as captain, Cazorla as vice and Belerin in defence now look like inspired managerial decisions.  Maybe he has a shout at the precarious role over at Villa at the moment.

Well don Ryan.

Page 2 Pacesetter

Matt W and The Weeners grabbed a tidy 79 points this week to propel him up to the top half of Page 2.  RVP as captain gained him 14 points, but if only he had chosen Kane or Sterling then Page 1 was starting to become a reality for him within one or two weeks.

Good work Matt.

The Best of the Rest

Special mention to Ben West for scoring 81 points this week.  59 of which came from 3 players, Cazorla, Kane and Van Aanholt.  Average for the rest of the team was 2 points. Team selection actually very good on paper but we all know games are not won on paper!

Good choices Ben!

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

Gael Clichy.......

City, who used to pride themselves on a tight defence in Mancini’s time at the club now seem to have gone soft. Pellegrini is messing around with the goalie, doesn’t seem to know who his best centre back pairing is, has Vincent Kompany way off form, has two equally hopeless defensive midfielders in Fernando and Fernandinho and only plays Clichy in the tougher games, preferring the attacking qualities of Kolarov against weaker opponents.

Manchester United are regarded as having a poor defence, but they have actually shipped less goals than City so far this season. Obviously, Chelsea and Southampton defenders are good choices for a replacement but everyone else has got them. How about WBA’s Chris Baird at £3.9m and less than 2% ownership instead?
