Welcome to Novembers Edition of League of Leagues for the 2017-2018 season. My new job and baby have kept me rather busy so apologies for the lack of consistency with the blogs the last few weeks. I’ll be switching them to every two weeks to try and get a handle on it. Although if anyone wants to get involved and help out on the blogs and updates please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. This blog will cover the first 2 rounds of November – rounds 14 and 15.
Top Picks for November
In total we have 77 different teams picked by the 22 players this month. Man City are the top pick this month with 20 picks
League Split: In total we have 12 Premier League Teams, 21 Championship, 17 League 1, 15 League 2 and 12 picks from the National League
Round 14 Action – 2nd-5th Nov
The month started with a full round of action and no matches affected by the weather. Pretty average on the goal front with 2.67 goals per game.
Round 14 Team Standings
Man City lead the way for round 14 with 14 points. 1 team managed to score 5 or more and earn some bonus points, with 5 teams just missing out having scored 4. The top 10 in round 14 scored 73 and if you were clever/lucky enough to have man City as your trump then you could have scored 87.
Standings for Round: 14
Andy Wilkinson had stormer with 67 to lead the way with Ian Porter 6 points back in 2nd. Sean Reeve was third with 57.
I don’t want to make excuses but i did mention we have a little baby? And i started a new job? No? Bottom of the pile after round 14 sits me after keeping the same teams and trump as October – rookie mistake. Chris Lovett and Anthony Doyle are 5 points ahead after bad starts also.
Round 15 Summary – 9th-12th Nov
FA Cup action meant there was a total of 62 games involving our 116 teams – its a bit more than the normal 58 as there were some teams from divisions below the National League.
Week Team Standings
Bury lead the way this week with 13 points. 1 team(s) managed to score 5 or more and earn some bonus points, with 5 teams just missing out having scored 4. The top 10 this week scored 72 and if you were clever/lucky enough to have Bury as your trump then you could have scored 85.
Standings for Round: 15
I’m back with a bang (ignore my earlier whingeing about babies etc) after some substitutions to lead the way for round 15, Just ahead of James Marchant in 2nd and Sean in 3rd.
Ashley Jones hasn’t had the best week with just 19 points picked up.
Standings for November
James Marchant is once again at the top of the table this week with a decent 108 points. Ian Porter is having a great month in second and Jamie Harris up to 3rd.
Mr Lovett is having a bit of a rest this month at the bottom, but only 2 points behind Ashley Jones and a lot of football left to play.
INTERNATIONAL BREAKING NEWS: as usual there are no Premier League or Championship games this weekend, so don’t forget to sub them out before Friday 7.45pm as they will 100% not score any points. This weekend we have games and the weekend starts with Fleetwood vs Walsall on Saturday 12.00 and finishes with Hartlepool vs Barnet on Sunday 4.30pm.
