Fantasy EPL scoring of City players
#1

With Player of the Season votes coming soon I was trying to work out whether there was a methodology which could be applied to work out who our best performing players have been. I applied the scoring system used in Fantasy EPL an applied it to this seasons squad - I haven’t done everyone as it became apparent very quickly that there were only around 5 players who were anywhere near contention for the top places. The scoring system is here under ‘scoring’:

Some weren’t applicable or the data just isn’t available ie. Saves, bonus points for player of the match etc. 

You won’t be surprised to see that the top five contains Dawson, O’Sullivan and Leadbitter, but the top two may surprise you:

Hulbert 105 pts
Thompson 95 pts
Dawson 91 pts
TOS/Leads 90 pts

Still time for things to change, it isn’t a fool proof system but may provide some insight when it comes to making your choices!

The issue I have with picking Hulbert is that he was awesome in that first month to 6 weeks but has been pretty average since and missed some sitters like Monday vs Hereford

Instinctively, it feels like a defender should be our player of the year given it’s been our strongest area (once LM took over), but all of them have had significant chunks of time out injured. Nugent has been our stand-out player when fit imho, but Leads has been very good too.

I could understand it going to Dawson or TOS given the games they’ve racked up and some good performances,  but they have both been a bit frustrating at times.

Dawson by a country mile for me.

I would find it hard to vote for a player who was involved in the 9-0 defeat. I’m nothing if not childish.

Gets my vote, but would be easier if he hadn't had so many yellow and red cards.

First two thirds of the season in I'd honestly say he was miles off, and thought he was over hyped and ill disciplined. Of late though he has frankly been unreal, and on current form probably is the stand out player. As already mentioned Hulbert had an unbelievable purple patch but hasn't neccesarily maintained those levels. He deserves to be in the discussion though as without that purple patch we'd most likely still be in trouble.  Pre injury I thought Leadbitter was strolling it, particularly in terms of consistency of performance. Hard to recall a game where he wasn't at least a 7/10. On balance I think that's where my vote would go.  Honourable mention to all of the keepers who have done well IMO, although none have played enough games to be serious contenders.

I'd only consider one who has played most of the season, Jake was another option for me.

As always will defend my nephew, I'm not sure I would be looking to picking him in the player of the season, maybe the young player of the season, he was brought to Gloucester to help strengthen a team, he has I believe achieved that. A forward is about a lot more than just scoring goals especially at a younger age its a learning process, as before and again when Ollie started the team was quite settled with MM playing alongside when that partnership ended through injury etc Ollie has failed to find the back of the net. I have spoken to him on many occasions and its confidence factor for him, he kicks him self when he does not score and take the best options. I'm glad he has been given the chance to play so many games for Gloucester and I can only say thanks to LM and Daff for getting him up the M5 and continuing the education they had been giving him at the Gas. I can see he has developed as a player, he has a more physical presence now an older head on younger shoulders. For me its been a great chance to support a different club other than the Gas, i've enjoyed my time September supporting as many home games as possible and even a couple of away games, i've been impressed by the passion of many and with the continued backing and continued leadership of AP the club will go from strength to strength. As for your sitter against Hereford not always to score from an acute angle and there are plenty of great strikers that have missed far easier chances, did think he should have scored thoe lol
