The top 4 is set in stone, but our league is still wide open

After Chelsea's win against the very brave Hull last night and Long Ball Louis's team taking full advantage of Slippy G's aberration earlier, the EPL Top 4 is cast in tablets of stone. The only issue is who will finish where behind Chelsea with Manchester United still having to play both City and Arsenal, Arsenal having to play Liverpool, Chelsea and United and the Champions having to play away games at both United and Spurs.

In our league, the inevitable has happened with Oli Ottey somehow throwing away his uncatchable lead with a series of quite amazing errors in team selection and captaincy to let in Sam Bisgrove with Matt Newman not far behind. Why would anyone in their right mind select the out of form Kun Aguero as their captain against a side managed by Tony Pulis instead of the in form Harry Kane facing Leicester? But Oli wasn’t alone in this monumental cock-up and was joined by last season’s overall winner, Jay Egersdorff.

Oh dear.

The top 10 are as follows:

Sam Bisgrove

Oli Ottey – Goodman Masson

Jay Egersdorff

Matt Newman

Eddy Dowling

John West – Meridian

Sachin Ruparelia, Camino Partners

Marcus Francis

Neil Kane

Ryan Roberts

Manager of the Week

Paul Davis has broke the ton! A superb 102 points from the man in 43rd place courtesy of his superb attack of Kane (C), Costa and Giroud and backed up by his impressive midfield of Hazard, Silva and Sanchez. How does he possibly afford them all?

Great performance Paul and welcome to the newsletter.

Page 2 Pacesetter

Craig Courtman has done it again! We’ve never ever had a Page 2 Pacesetter who’s won it twice on the bounce before. Last week, Craig was in 99th place and this week, thanks to his very impressive 94 points he’s moved up to 80th. Craig had what is becoming the front line of the stars in Kane, Costa and Giroud and this week, he wisely left George Boyd on the bench for Burnley’s away trip to Southampton.

An amazing run of form Craig.

The Best of the Rest

In 137th place and with a very creditable 90 points we find Arsenal fan Brett Hossack. Brett’s club loyalties don’t run deep enough to have his full quota of players from his in-form team and he’s sensible enough to choose Spurs hero Harry Kane as his captain.

Keep it up Brett. Page 2 beckons.

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

Slippy G.......

Fresh from his monumental slip up against Manchester United yesterday when he lasted less than a minute on the pitch, Slippy G is experiencing an extremely disappointing end to his Premiership career. Although he started every game bar one on the first half of the season, Brodgers has learned to do without him in the second half and with the combination of Henderson and Allen doing so well, Slippy looks more and more like a spent force. Whereas last season he took a mere 13 minutes to score a FPL point, this season he’s taken 21 minutes. Add to this his three-match ban for the most stupid foul of the season; any FPL manager who still has him in their team needs to slip him out fast.

“When I was unsure about leaving my employer, Tim listened to my career aspirations and frustrations and within 24 hours had presented several opportunities to pursue that fit in with my personality and goals, which reassured me that he has great industry knowledge, and that he listened 100% to what I was looking for. I secured new employment very quickly and couldn't be happier with the process. He managed the process very professionally, was always in contact and took a lot of the stress and unease of finding a new company to work for away. I’ll recommend him to anyone I know looking for a new position in the future, thanks Tim!”
