Vital Statistics, Week 7

The results have been published – the sums have been done. Who are the winners and losers from this week’s FPL?

Remarkable, absolutely re-bleedin-markable. Another week another leader – and this one has made a break for it like an over-enthusiastic yellow jersey-lover on the Tour de France. Will he make it to the finish line, or will another rider stick a stick in his spokes? Watch this space, we’ll find out.

And so it’s Richard Moran who has made to the top of the FPL table once again, but this time with a 30 point lead over second placed Tria Nolan. Given a minimum score of 0 and a maximum of 1424, Richard’s point score of a tiny 614 is 56.9% right. As predicted on these pages last week, Emit Brown is still last (and I predict he will be for the remainder of the competition) with a revolting 922 points, or for those inclined, 35.3% right.

And so to the risers and fallers, the toppers and tailers of the week. Phil Surtees is the most improved player of the week points wise, losing a fairly incredible 100 points this week. Come to think of it (and I have checked), it’s about the best weekly improvement I’ve ever seen. As a result, Phil has also risen a whoppin’ 49 places up the FPL league table. Sweet work Phil, good on ya.

For every positive, there’s a negative – for every impressive score, there’s someone who’s only got themselves to blame and ought to be embarrassed for their performance. This week I shan’t rant on about how shameful their performance is, I shall just let the stats talk for themselves.

Callum Jones, gains 84 points. Andrew McKechnie, drops 47 places.


That’s your lot for the week. Remember, you can make up your own stats by taking a good hard look at the results table.

PS – Where’s Ade? Do you work with him? Have you seen him in the office maybe, or in the supermarket or gym? Does he even go shopping – I have no idea. Any road, Ade’s been missing from these pages now for 4 weeks and I’m getting a little worried. I mean, he’s not winning the FPL but that’s no need for these days of quiet is it? Well, if you’ve seen him, drop us a note here just to put our minds all at rest eh? Ta.
