Premier League Fantasy Football Boots 2011/12: Week 8

Another week of Premier League action and that means another week of goals, assists and Fantasy Football Boots brought to you exclusively by 

As a little reminder for you…

Each week, will keep a running table of which boots are scoring the most goals and which are making the most assists as well as collating the two to reveal the Premier League’s most prolific and most creative football boot.

Three points will be rewarded for each goal scored while there is one on offer for every assist.

After yet another international break (sodding things) it was time to get back to the bread and butter of Premier League football.

The usual contributors (Rooney, Suarez, Silva, Nani, Dzeko, Drogba etc.) may have missed out on securing the points this week, but it was very much business as usual at the top of the FFB table.

The adidas f50 adiZero extended its lead at the summit thanks to an unchallenged 24 point haul.

Seven goals (Pilkington 2, Helguson, Ngog, Ba, Defoe and Ameobi) along with a trio of assists was only closely met by the 21 points from Nike’s CTR360 Maestri II (which bagged 6 goals and 3 assists).

The most anticipated game prior to the weekend was obviously the battle of two great rivals, Liverpool and Manchester United.

And as the goal scorers proved, it should have also been billed as the battle of the brands, adidas v Nike. Steven Gerrard notched 3 points for the adidas adiPower Predator with a curling freekick, before Javier Hernandez salvaged a point from a Danny Welbeck assist – both don Tiempo boots.

The boot making the biggest surge for the title in recent weeks is the Nike Mercurial Vapor SuperFly III, which bagged a total of 18 points this week.

Goals from Eagles, A.Johnson, Vellios and Odemwingie along with six assists (Eagles, Sinclair, Johnson, Agbonlahor, Mata and Gervinho) mean that the speedster is only a couple of good game-weeks away from moving into second place.

As for the mid-table battle, it looks set to be between most of the Umbro and Puma cleats. The Umbro Speciali had a decent week, with John Terry and Stephen Warnock helping them to a handy 6 points.

The Geometra Pro is also worth a mention, with a goal (Martin) and assist (Gutierrez) keeping their total ticking over nicely.

The PUMA v1.11 will surely miss Sergio Aguero being out injured but Yaya Toure and Matthew Etherington assists ensured that the boot didn’t finish pointless over the weekend.

The biggest mover up the table came from an unlikely source. Rory Delap’s header v Fulham meant that the adidas Copa Mundial climbed off the bottom of the pile to 14th place!
