Qualifying Round Results

If you would take a gander at the leaderboard, you will notice that the 3 teams who scored the least points this week are as follows:

TeamManagerQualifying Score
Hurry onward Lemmiwinks or you will soon be deadJames Tombs22
Looney TombsMick Tombs16
Stamina FCAdam Smith10

Hence, these teams dont make it into the hat for the first round draw. Which is lame seeing as one of the teams is mine. Super Weak.

The first round draw will was done last night (see below), and the round takes place between Sat 14th Oct - Fri 20th Sept (Week 9)

How it Works

Specific weeks (see below) are set aside as FA cup rounds. The basic idea is that in each round each team will be drawn against another, which is done completely at random so it is possible to get 2 of your teams drawn against eachother. Then, basically which ever team scores the most points in that particular week will progress - the other eliminated. Hence it doesn't matter how well you are doing in the league, its all about how you perform in that specific week.

Obviously, the pattern continues as we lose half of the remaining teams each round, until we are left with 2, and then in the final week the victor will walk away with the cup (which unfortunately is intangible) and the prize money! (which is most definitely real)

In the event of a draw the round is simply replayed the following week until we have a winner. Simple.

One problem however, is the number of teams involved. As you have already noticed, we have 67 teams. The nature of a cup competition means that we need to start with 64 teams to make things neat, hence we must lose 3 teams before we even make the first round draw. How will this be done?

Thats right, a qualification round. This is how it works:

Any manager that only entered 1 team will have that team automatically qualify. If you entered a group of 3 teams under 2 different names (i.e Joe & Michelle, Jaz & Sunny) then all 3 teams have to qualify. Hence, Thats already 7 teams qualified. Easy.

Of the remaining 60 teams, we need to lose 3. So, the way I have decided to do this is that in the qualification round, the 3 teams who score the lowest scores overall will be eliminated and the other managers will have all 3 teams entered into the cup. Therefore this means that everybody will have at least 1 team in the cup, and the managers who are consistently good will have more chance of winning.

From then on, the draws will be made, rounds played and hopefully a bit of fun and banter will take place!


Here are the dates for the FA cup rounds:

Qualifying Round: Sat 16th Sept - Fri 22th Sept (Week 5)

1st Round: Sat 14th Oct - Fri 20th Sept (Week 9)

2nd Round: Sat 4th Nov - Fri 10th Nov (Week 12)

3rd Round: Sat 25th Nov - Fri 1st Dec (Week 15)

Quarter Finals: Sat 16th Dec - Fri 22nd Dec (Week 18)

Semi Finals: Sat 6th Jan - Fri 12th Jan (Week 21)

Final: Sat 27th Jan - Fri 2nd Feb (Week 24)

All of these dates cover a full set of premiership fixtures, and will obviously include any carling cup, fa cup, uefa cup or champions league matches that take place in the week too.
