Grimsby Town might not be where we’d like them to be in the league table, so console yourself with a different type of league table – a table where players earn points based on the Fantasy Premier League system. Omar Bogle led the way at the end of August – who was top of the pile at the end of September?
It was an undefeated month for the Mariners. There were three draws and three wins, and at the 12th time of asking we finally kept a clean sheet, which gave the defenders some much needed points. Here’s how the table’s shaping up:
With seven goals to his name perhaps it’s no surprise to see Bogle remaining out in front. There’s been a bit of jostling behind him, with Nathan Arnold creeping into second and Monkhouse slipping down to fourth. East has impressed and jumps to fifth.
Despite losing his place to loan signing Matt Robinson, Clay remains in a good position. Although the clean sheets at Wrexham and Southport were good news for Pearson and Gowling, they weren’t enough to help them into the Top 10.
Here’s what the table looks like based on points per game:
But whichever way you look at it, Bogle’s the man… which makes you wonder why he was dropped for the start of October. The very same could be said of Amond, who only started three matches in September and scored in two of them to underline both his contribution and importance to the team.
If you want to know where Tomlinson is, well, with four points from three games, and an average of 1.33 points per game, he’s all the way down in 18th. Only Josh Venney is beneath him.
There are six games in October (three have already been played). I’ll be back in November to bring you next month’s update – and I plan to do it before Football Manager 2016 is released, because if I start playing it I’ll never find the time to blog.
Also, don’t forget to order your copy of We are Town from the Mariners Trust website. There’s going to be a great launch event for it at McMenemy’s on Friday 13th November, so please make that if you can!
