    Dannyboi-FFC has posted the updated information together with the fixture list for the 3rd Round ....


    Hi 64, it's show time!

    First of all can a mod or the powers that be move this thread to the top and delete the previous one, I will be very grateful.

    I'd like to start by pointing out the new rule I've decided to put in place. There is now a deadline to submit your scores by, this deadline is 12pm on Saturday 03/01/15. The first games listed for prediction kick off at 3pm on the same day. In order to prevent too many drop outs, I have decided to have reserves who will automatically replace anyone who misses the deadline. These reserves will post their scores just like everyone else so that their predictions are in place should they be needed. If were unfortunate enough to have more casualties then reserves I will refer back to the sign up order. Say for example 5 players no longer have an opponent, the sign up order will determine who gets a buy to the next round and who will face a reserve instead with the first members who signed up taking priority. I hope that makes sense.......

    You have two weeks to post your scores and I will PM all members who haven't with a few days to go.

    Here's a link to the updated rules just in case you wish to go over them

    http://www.friendsoffulham.com/forum/index.php?topic=43340.msg595847#msg595847

    This isn't mentioned in the rules but just to make you aware, I will be keeping a record of all the scores away from this thread, so should you decide you want to change a score make sure you PM me before the game kicks off. If I receive a PM in time I will accept it. So no one try to be clever and start editing their scores once matches are finished and we know the outcome. I'm sure none of you would dream of it lol but I'm just making you aware that I will know you're cheating.....

    Thanks SCJ and Logicalman, I've been too busy eating broccoli (or choppin' broccoli) to pay much attention to anything but broccoli.

    latest post from Dannuboi ---- its an update to the original post, but contains information of round 4. I will post the actual Round 4 on a new thread when its published fully...


    It's show time 64! Who will create history as the first ever FOF Tipping Cup champion???

    Here's a link to the updated rules just in case you wish to go over them

    http://www.friendsoffulham.com/forum/index.php?topic=43340.msg595847#msg595847

    Ok everyone, here's the results from the 3rd round, the draw for the 4th and a couple of extra stats for those interested.......

    Ties that ended up as a draw were decided by the tiebreaker rule, this is explained in the rules link above. Basically the official total amount of goals was added up for the 16 games selected and compared to the total amount both members predicted. The closest wins, simple as that.

    As always you are entitled to query your scores if you believe a mistake has been made, please pm me if that's the case. Any appeals need to be submitted before Sunday 12pm (lunchtime) otherwise they will not count. The winner of that tie will be informed of the appeal and updated as need be but to be honest both myself and logical man agreed on the results which were checked 4 times lol! So I really hope they are 100%.

    3rd Round Results (total amount of goals for tiebreaker was 30)
    Arsenal (ffc73) 10 v Hull City (Joseph Figueiredo) 8
    Southampton (fulhamBen) 9*v Ipswich (MJG) 9 [41 v 50]

    Preston (SuffolkWhite) 8 v Norwich (Alfie) 8* [48 v 33]
    Doncaster (Dannyboi-ffc) 11 v Bristol City (Kent Cassandra) 8


    Game of the round

    1) PokerMatt v Mince- 6-7 down going into the final game matt needed a draw, that dramatic leveller in injury time literally equalised for him and at 7 a piece matt won by 1 GOAL on the tiebreaker.

    2) Deano v RidgeRider 12-10 - the battle of the mods and boy did it live up to its reputation. As the fourth official held up the board for injury time we were seconds away from seeing the greatest comeback since Fulham v juve. Deano lead 6-1 going onto sunday before RR clawed it back to 12-10 needing a 0-1 correct score to win the tiebreaker, then lukaku broke RR ' S heart.

    3) Kevin vs Westcliffe white 13-11. One of the highest scoring games, two familiar faces in the world of tipping and it showed with two very impressive scores.


    Highest score of the round)

    1) Aaronmcguigan 14
    2) The Cravenette 13
    3) Kevin 13


    The dannyboi performance of the month award)

    1) aaronmcuigan- the highest points total, he literally blew Barrett487 away from kickoff. Barrett ending up with 10 and yet still he was never in it. Brilliant performance.

    2) Egham white- a beginner In the world of tipping and came up against one of the favourites in David Allen crankshaw. Also a reserve so he had no time at all to study the fixtures and went into the final game needing a correct score to progress. 0-1 West Ham which shows how unlucky he was. Very unlucky but he should be proud, he was a great advert for the Lower league amateur divisions.

    3) RidgeRider- very unlucky to go out with 10 points, going into Sunday he was 6-1 down and fought back to be 12-10 down needing a correct score from everton 0v1 West ham. The injury time equaliser crushed his dreams but it was unbelievably close and im sure deano agrees.



    4th round draw


    Aston Villa (bobby01) V Bournemouth (FulhamTupNorth)
    Birmingham (lighthouse) V West Brom (sunburywhite)
    Blackburn (burt) V Swansea (rogerpinvirgina)
    Brighton (super mitch) V Arsenal (ffc73)
    Cambridge (deanothefulhamfan) V Man Utd (mr bombastic plastic)

    Cardiff (dc heather) V Reading (chiple chople)
    Chelsea (max headroom) V Millwall or Bradford (logical man)
    Derby (leonffc) V Scunthorpe or Chesterfield (pokermatt)
    Liverpool (whiteflea) V Bolton (rweller86)
    Man City (mickN) V Middlesbrough (Syd Cupp)
    Preston (Alfie) V Sheff Utd (kevin)
    Rochdale (the cravenette) V Stoke (hovewhite)
    Sunderland V (epsomraver) Fulham or Wolves (Woolly mammoth)
    Doncaster or Bristol City (dannyboi-ffc) V Everton or West Ham (glenhodgso)
    Burnley or Tottenham (aaronmcguigan) V Leicester (david allen crankshaw)
    Southampton or Ipswich (fulhamben) V Crystal Palace (tslyon)

    All 16 games will need to be predicted for those of you who want to start studying, they will be posted as soon as the 3rd round replays are concluded next week. I will pm all of you with a reminder so don't forget!!!

    Thank you to everyone eliminated for taking part, I hope you enjoyed it and sign up again next year if I decide to do it again. Apoligies for how long this post is but a lot of information had to be shared.

    Dannyboi over and out!

    Curses. I was undone by Lukaku's 91st minute goal (and my inability to predict anywhere near the total amount of goals scored).

    And this is why I don't play for money.
