G'day OzSpurs NFG League. This is your weekly FPL update.

The winners for gameweek 8 were 'Glory Hotspurs' [Darren Cubitt] and 'CTRL+ALT+DELE' [Mason Kingsbury] with 83 points! Rounding up the top 3 for the week were 'Payneham Hotspur' [steve uren] (79 pts).

'ClintEssentials' [Clint Westall] stayed at the top of the table with 452 points, although 'Payneham Hotspur' [steve uren] is creeping closer 2 points behind. At the other end 'ILLNEVERWIN FC' [Alex Moroney] is the new slouch in last place with a pitiful 265 points total.

The worst ranking teams this week were 'Carnyacucks' [Filmer FS] (27 pts), 'Athletic Club Dildao' [Rob Fletcher] (27 pts), 'puyolpantsdown' [Dylan Siddens] (25 pts), and 'ILLNEVERWIN FC' [Alex Moroney] (21 pts). Hang your heads in shame.

When it came to captaincy choices 'Audere Est Facere' [Craig Allen], 'SONny side up' [Jack Beaumont], 'gimme gimme' [Willem Buckley], 'CTRL+ALT+DELE' [Mason Kingsbury], and 'BIELSKIFC' [Luca Bielski] did the best this week with 38 points from Son Heung-min. On the other end of the spectrum was '11 Men in Flight' [Tim Lee], 'Chef_4_Hire' [Scott Bowerman], 'Subbuteoz' [Simon Godfrey], and 'Aint got a scoobydoo' [Harry O'Brien] who had picked Ivan Toney for a total of 4 points. You receive the armband of shame for this week.

Moving onto substitutions 'MetKaneOnce' [Lee Carter] will be kicking themselves after having left 16 points on the bench which was the highest in the league.

This week 'GooseberryFC' [Jack Rologas] did the best with automatic substitutions receiving 13 points from Martínez, Romero, Coady, and Iheanacho coming off the bench in lieu of Mendy, Alexander-Arnold, Zaha, and Groß. 'Tappo’s Tottenham' [David Tapping] was not as fortunate getting a hopeless -3 points from Collins who covered for Van Dijk.

As for shakers and movers 'Badcoe' [Steve Holdstock] climbed 33 spots this week. In the not so great department we have 'Carnyacucks' [Filmer FS] dropping 37 spots.
