Week 20

"People don't really give any respect to the Africa Cup of Nations" - Ian Wright.
ACON starts on January 9th and many players including Salah and Mane will be representing their countries.

Most captained player was Mo Salah who missed a penalty and ended up with 0 doubled to .......... 0. I can remind people that this was not a great disaster in terms of Jan Bednarek who last season scored an own goal, gave away a penalty and was sent off to score -7 which would have been -14 if he was unfortunate enough to be nominated as captain. David Lambert scored a magnificent 90 points which was amongst the highest overall scores of the week whereas Richard Dineley was low scorer for the second week in succession. Little change at the top; the bottom three managers are becoming detached and are likely to fight it out for the wooden spoon.

1 Slumdog Mignolet Sam Herring 65 1321
2 Lanzini'sLamborghini Joel Newman 60 1317
3 Melvinho XI Melvin Pool 50 1309
4 Gini Mini Mane Mo Matthew Timbrell 45 1294
5 Desperate Means Kaia Means 53 1279

Cup report As well as losing his place in the top five (above), Paul Cooksey the highest placed manager left was k.o'd in the Overall Cup. Six managers remain; five went out and one was drawn which I think will end in our favour. I'll give a full rundown after Week 21 of any remaining teams left in.

Quarter Two - Continuity Stats Weeks 11-19

The methodology is given in Quarter One so I won't go through it all again. In this quarter 70 managers had either a top five or bottom five finish. Those at the top were fairly random whilst those managers at the bottom who have neglected their teams made multiple appearances and we can expect to see more of them next quarter. Here are the stats with a minimum of two weeks needed to appear.

High scores (from +5 for best score down to +1 - number of weeks in brackets)

Eddie Hargreaves 10 pts (2)
Sam Herring 8 pts (2)
Joel Newman 7 pts (3)
Paul Cooksey 7 pts (2)
Kaia Means 7 pts (2)

Low Scores (from -5 for lowest score down to -1 - number of weeks in brackets)

Gavin Carter -14 pts (5)
Chris James -14 pts (3)
Daniel Gliddon -11 pts (3)
Richard Dineley -11 pts (3)
David Lambert -10 pts (3)
Gaurov Kamath -8pts (3)
Jonathan Blackburn -8pts (2)

plus a number of others on -5 .

Week 21

"For me, it's a pleasure to be here." Philippe Coutinho's first interview as an Aston Villa player.

Covid continues to cause havoc with fixture postponements and rearrangements. Richard York-Weaving scored a magnificent mind-boggling 115 points whilst Daniel Gliddon had a mind numbing 17 points for low score of the week. No change amongst our leading top five players; only Paul Cooksey and David Egginton remain in challenging positions to join this elite.

1 Slumdog Mignolet Sam Herring 77 1394
2 Gini Mini Mane Mo Matthew Timbrell 83 1373
3 Lanzini'sLamborghini Joel Newman 63 1372
4 Melvinho XI Melvin Pool 74 1371
5 Desperate Means Kaia Means 79 1354

Cup Report. One player (Jarrod Bowen of West Ham) was largely successful for Richard York-Weavings mammoth score when he played his "triple captain" chip. He was also largely responsible for seeing me k.o'd from the Cup. Five managers though are still in there after six rounds - they are Joe Friar, John Reyes, James Bramman, Andrew Harley & Jude Shearsby and they enter the Week 22 draw.

Week 22

"Thank you to everyone who supported us from the start" Rafa Benitez.

There have been no managerial sackings since Week 11 but Rafa's removal seemed almost inevitable. Ranieri is now the most popular choice for the boot. Sam Herring and Melvin Pool have made a determined effort to distance themselves from their rivals - and the pack have now closed in on the remaining leaders. For the first time since Week 3, James Marley appears in the top five - his score of 99 points was certainly not flakey. Nevertheless it wasn't the top score of the week with Phil Makepeace and David Fryer both with 100+ points. Player with the melted ice-lolly was Jonathan Blackburn on 23 points. Despite being away at the AFCON tournament Mo Salah was Fantasy Football's most captained player this Game Week

1 Slumdog Mignolet Sam Herring 76 1470
2 Melvinho XI Melvin Pool 97 1468
3 Lanzini'sLamborghini Joel Newman 52 1424
4 Gini Mini Mane Mo Matthew Timbrell 51 1420
5 Dynamo Flick James Marley 99 1416

Cup News All five of our managers won through Week 22 and are in the Week 23 draw.

Hopefully no one else was daft enough to make Emmanuel Dennis their captain for Watford's double match week :oops:

I'm afraid I did - as did the majority of our top ten managers. Odd that selecting Salah as captain would have been a better choice :roll: !
