Another exciting weekend of Cup football, throws out the usual shocks with a couple of the lower teams progressing at the expense of more established FFL Teams.

Full List of 1st Round results is:

Make De Gea..... (Sam) 4 vs Jonny FC (Jonny) -3

3 wishes for the Deeney (Alex) 2 vs Tillys All Stars (Tilly) 6

Anything but Bottom (Neil) 5 vs Free Fullbacks (Ben) 10

Mata of Fact (Bodhinaga) 6 vs Carl FC 7

Ten and a Half Men (Chris) 6 vs Long Pants (Ray) 5

Bloo-MINS-uperb (Ted) 0 vs Ramseys Nightmares (Ed) 3

So Alex takes an early bath, as does Ray to leave Sam as the only Kohn left in the Cup.
The Kirkman’s fared little better with Ted, Neil, and Bodhinaga all falling at the first Hurdle. Jenny (who got a bye) is the only Kirkman left in the Cup.

Reigning Cup holder Ed (Ramsey’s Nightmares) progressed into the quarter finals with an easy 3-0 win over Bloo-MINGS-uperb (Ted) who for the rest of the season will be known as Bloo-MINGS-hite.

The matches for the Quarter Final round will be:

Hendersons Relish (Jenny) vs Make De Gea (Sam)

Tillys All Stars vs Free Fullbacks (Ben)

Silva Costa Less... (Alistair) vs Carl FC

Ten and a half men (Chris vs Ramseys Nightmares (Ed)

Matches will take place over the period Tuesday/Wednesday 2nd/3rd February.

I am away on Holiday then, so Bodhinaga has agreed to take on the arduous task of keeping the scores and informing everyone of the results.. Thanks.

Happy New Year to everyone.

All the best

Gentlemen (and Lady),

The first round draw for the 2015/16 FFL Cup was made today — the home teams drawn out of Ted’s Adidas Cap By Barb’s left hand, and the away teams by Barb’s right hand. How’s that for fairness ?

With fourteen teams entering the cup this year, it’s bigger and better than ever. The draw is as follows:

Hendersons Relish (Jenny) gets a Bye into the Quarter finals

Make De Gea......(Sam) vs Jonny FC (Jonny)

3 Wishes from the Deeney (Alex) vs Tillys All Stars (Tilly)

Anything but Bottom (Neil) vs Free Fullbacks (Ben)

Silva Costa less than Sterling gets a bye into the Quarter Finals

Mata of Fact (Bodhinaga) vs Carl FC (Carl)

Ten and a half Men (Chris) vs Long Pants (Ray)

Bloo-MINGS-uperb (Ted) vs Ramsey’s Midfield Nightmares (Ed)

That concludes the draw for the 1st round of the FFL Cup......

So Cup Holder, Ed, was last out of the hat and will play relegation fodder, Ted. A dream draw for Ramsey’s Nightmares.

The big match of the 1st round will be Alex at home to league leader Tilly — one of the big boys has to go in round 1 !!!

First round matches will be played over the weekend of Saturday 2nd January thru Sunday 3rd January.

May the best team (s ) win.

Have a happy Christmas, everyone, and a successful, healthy and peaceful new year, from all on the FFL Cup Committee (Ted and Barb)

To confirm what everyone already seemed to know, we must congratulate Ed on winning the FFL Cup in his debut year, and bringing Tilly’s two year (almost) unbeaten run to an end.

Tilly’s All-Stars managed 8 points ( Stones with a clean sheet for Everton, and Sanchez (the bastard !) with a goal and assist for Arsenal against the mighty Liverpool.

Ed’s Variose Baines managed a massive 14 points (Begovic —1, Koscielny 1, Baines 3 Jagielka 6 and Hazard 5).

So the final score was

Tilly’s All-stars 8 vs Ed’s Varicose Baines 14

With the situation so close at the top of the league, who would bet against the double for Ed ?
With seven matches left the difference between top (Alex on 222 points) and fourth (Ted on 215 points) is a mere seven points. In between Tilly (218) and Ed (215) are well placed, so it could go to any of the four teams. Exciting or what !

Once again congratulations to Ed - a great result.

All the Best

Results from the weekends Semi-finals are :

Mul Owl -1 vs 12 Varicose Baines

Woeful Willies 6 vs 8 Tilly’s All Stars

For Carl’s MulOwl FC, 5 points for Aaron Ramsey was offset by —2 (each) for defenders Lloris, Caulker and Cresswell, while Ed’s Varicose Baines were rampant with four player gaining three points including the mighty Varicose himself.

In the other semi, Alistair’s Willies had a real go at the reigning Cup holders with 3 points each from Mertesacker and Barkley, but fell just short as Tilly’s All Stars proceed to the final on the back of clean sheets for De Gea and Jones, and an assist by Atsu (for Barkley’s goal !).

So the 2015 FFL Cup Final will be:

Varicose Baines vs Tilly’s All Stars

and will take place over the weekend of Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th and Monday 6th April.

All the best

FFL Cup Quarter Final Results

Quite a high-scoring weekend for the Cup Quarter Finals, with some big team scores in most matches. . . . .

Top Shelvey 2 v 5 MulOwl FC
Varicise Baines 11 v 8 Hendersons Relish
Woeful Willies 9 v 3 Stevie G’s Slip FC
Tilly’s All Stars 6 v 4 Anything but Bottom FC

So, Cup Holders Tilly’s All Stars progress to the semi finals at the expense of Neil’s Anything but Bottom.

The remaining Kirkman’s (Bodhinaga’s Top Shelvey and Jenny’s Hendersons Relish) also went out of the cup, and Sam’s Stevie G slipped out as well. So we have a semi-final without any Kohn’s or Kirkman’s for the first time ever.
As Top Scorers, Ed’s Varicose Baines FC seem to have found their niche in cup football, while Alistair’s Woeful Willies seem to be anything but woeful in the cup, and Carl’s Mul Owl FC have picked up the Blades Cup Appetite, to maintain Sheffield’ interest.

So the Semi-final draw for the 2015 FFL Cup is

Mul Owl FC vs Varicose Baines
Woeful Willies vs Tilly’s All-Stars

Semi Finals will be played over the weekend of Saturday 14th, Sunday 15th and Monday 16th March, when there is a full Premier League weekend fixture list.

All the best

As usual, the magic of the Cup delivers a few shock results. . . . . . . .

Tadic Magic 3 vs 8 Top Shelvey
Hart Beat -6 vs -1 Mul Owl FC
It’s a Knockeart 3 vs 4 Hendersons Relish
Woeful Willies 4 vs -2 Eff-Ings-uperb
Joleon, Joleon, -2 vs 1 Stevie G’s Slip FC
Long Pants 2 vs 5 Anything but Bottom

So, top of the table Eff-ings-uperb go out to relegation strugglers Woeful Willies (down to the two non-penalties scored by Stevie G ! — not that I’m bitter). Interestingly, in the quarter finals, the WILLIES (including Stevie G) will take on Stevie G’s Slip FC, who managed to scramble past Jamie’s Repetitive Joleon.

The other top vs bottom matches also produced surprise results, when Top Shelvey hammered Tadic Magic, and HartBeat (-6) went out to Mul Owl (-1)

The defeat of Long Pants by Anything but Bottom, means that the sole surviving Kohn is Sam with Stevie G’s Slip.

In the Quarter Finals, current holder Tilly’s All Stars and new boys Varicose Baines join the fun. Full list of quarter final matches is below.

Quarter Final Matches

Top Shelvey vs Mul Owl FC
Varicose Baines vs Hendersons Relish
Woeful Willies vs Stevie G’s Slip FC
Tillys All Stars vs Anything but Bottom

Quarter Final games to be played over the weekend of 1st February 2015.

Just a reminder that the first round of the FFL Cup is scheduled to take place on New Years Day. You may recall that the draw for the Cup was made at the start of the season on Auction night, when the following matches were drawn out of the hat:

Tadic Magic vs Top Shelvey
Hart Beat vs Mul Owl FC
It’s a Knockeart vs Henderson’s Relish
Woeful Willies FC vs Eff-Ings-Uperb
Joleon, Joleon etc vs Stevie G’s Slip FC
Long Pants vs Anything but Bottom Fc

Varicose Baines, and Tilly’s All Stars both get a bye into the quarter finals.

Qualifying matches are those played on New Years Day only (I believe there is a Full fixture list, Alex !).

Just a reminder (and for those joining this season) - Points scored on that day only will count towards each FFL team score. Highest score in each of the matches gets through to the next round.

So, may the best team win. All the best to everyone — Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful 2015.

Ted (the FFL Cup Committee)
