WEEK 2 - WAT A TEAM STAY TOP WHILE FOWLES CRASH
Equal best on Week 1, new boys Wat A Team prove it was no fluke - second best this time, it now makes Marc Snell's boys our clear leaders by 8 points. Sadly the news is not so good for fellow new manager Simon Fowles whose Nightmare 11 were the worst of all with -1 point and drop from equal 1st to 20th. And that's despite new signing Jan Bednarek picking up 5 on his Fowles debut. Fowles are still in Division Three's promotion zone though.
 
KEEP CALM GO TOP OF THE LEAGUE
Meanwhile, with Wat A Team in Division Two, our new League leaders are Keep Calm And Mkhitaryan - Week 2's top scorers with 43 points. Keep Calm rocket from the relegation zone to top spot, and climb 19 places to 2nd overall. All 11 of Keep Calm's boys were in action - none scored more than 5 Nightmare points, but none scored less than 3. That's consistency for ya. Manager Trevor Matthews made four changes after Week 1, with the new boys scoring 13 points between them - actually an 11 point gain as the discarded Yoshinori Muto would have picked them up 2.

At this early stage it makes Trevor 2nd best manager in terms of transfer success. The Last Minutes also gained 11 from some changes, but Patrick O'Reilly managed that with just two transfers, Tom Heaton and Pablo Fornals doing the business.
 
WOODENMEN THE EARLY KINGS OF BAD BUSINESS
The worst mover in the market so far is Matt Woodmansey who brought in three new boys. Between them they gained 2 points for The Woodenmen - meanwhile, however, all three of the Nightmares Matt sold were in action, and between them they scored 10 points. A net loss of 8 points for The Woodens who nevertheless had a good week, climbing 11 places to 7th overall. They'd be 3rd though had Matt left well alone. Normally a highly astute manager when it comes to transfer business, perhaps it's just a case of making sure he's in early enough for the players who are going to light up the Nightmare calendar.

A final note on Matt's buying and selling, it's already brought about the first instance of another Nightmare 11 snapping up someone else's reject - after The Woodenmen let James Tarkowski go, The Magical Eloise made him their first signing of the season. So far it looks a good move for the buyer, with Tarkowski scoring 5 points on his Eloise debut.
