Week 15 - Cheshire Town Take the Lead in Medals Table

Published: 14 December 2017


INTRODUCTION

When there are mid-week matches in the Premier League we like to keep the blog short, simply because we have less time to write the bits that deal with the Week’s scoring in the Golden Boot game. For those of you missing our insightful comments, might I suggest you read last Week’s introduction again.

WEEK 15 REVIEW

The top four most valued selections all got goals in Week 15, with the top selection, Kane, adding a second for good measure. Given the popularity of these four, it is somewhat surprising that only two teams had more than four scorers, though not at all surprising that the average score was up at 22.5 points. Ten teams scored over thirty points but these were covered by just two points with the top score being just 33, from four teams. Of the teams that hit the top score BF Giants had the best record with seven goals from five scorers. The other three teams all had six goals from four scorers with sillstars having a slightly better record than All New Goal Monkeys and Something For The Weekend Sir whose records were identical. Just a point behind these four came another group of four teams all of whom had five goals from four scorers and a point behind them came the Week’s top goal scorers, Oxford Orange, with eight goals from their five scorers (braces from Mounie and Son as well as Kane).

Four of the top six teams in the overall standings were in the group with 32 points. The two who weren’t each dropped a position in the table. Last Week’s leaders fdringo extended their lead to two points over Bury Wanderer who moved back into second place. Cheshire Town, however, dropped back to third but still have a comfortable lead of thirteen points over the rest. Magic Eight Balls have been replaced in fourth spot by Lancashire Rover and are only holding on to fifth by virtue of scoring more goals than donnyvegas.

THE MEDALS TABLE GAME

There were thirteen teams who won two gold medals this Week but none added more than four medals in total. By adding two silver medals to their two golds sillstars had the Week’s best return. Four teams All New Goal Monkeys, Bury Wanderer, donnyvegas and Something For The Weekend Sir all gained a silver and bronze to supplement their two golds. Cheshire Town were the only one of last Week’s leading group to add two gold medals to the three they already had and they now sit firmly on top of the standings with two Weeks to go. Slumdog Mignolet were able to double their tally of golds this Week and with their previous haul of minor medals jump into second spot at the head of three teams with four golds and four silvers. BF Giants had only a single gold this Week but adding two silvers keeps them in joint third, now with londonlads who also doubled their golds total but were unable to add a minor medal. There are eight other teams with four gold medals and varied collections of minor medals, so it is still very tight at the top. There’s a normal Week before we end the competition with another double game Week over the Christmas period, so plenty of chance to catch up before the contest is decided on 28th December.

COMING UP IN WEEK 16

Week 16 is a normal Week with one Premier League match for each club, making ten fixtures in all. The selection deadline is at the usual time of 11:00 am on Saturday 16th December. The final fixture is taking place on Monday night between Everton and Swansea. We will update the web sites shortly after the final whistle has sounded at Goodison. At this point we will know the final line up for the quarter finals of the Golden Boot Cup with either Haxey Hoodlums or Magic Eight Balls joining the teams who have already qualified. Magic Eight Balls lead their opponents by some 22 places and seventy points in the current standings, perhaps now they are the away team they will be able to get the job done. The draw for the quarter finals of the Cup will take place on Wednesday 20th December and later on the same day the next web log, the final one before Christmas, will be published. The blog will have all the usual Golden Boot game and Medals Table game news as well as bringing you right up to date with the latest from the Golden Boot Cup.
