Right-o. Sorry for the delay - been distracted of late. Here, though, is the draw for the RGF Cup competition:

GROUP 1
Arc of a Diver
Fredzakistan
pleccy fc
Team Alfie

GROUP 2
Firebreathers Fail
Rhysenbourg BK
Team Teamy Team
ThingsOnSprIngs

GROUP 3
dste United
Maineieg FC
Stimpson J County
Yesterdays Jam

GROUP 4
Balotelitubbies
Clueless Utd
Patdfb Rangers
Team NTMY

GROUP 5
Cameron Diaz Fan Club
Murdie Marauders
Winter is Coming
World of Sputryk

GROUP 6
All You Need is DUFF
Overpaid Mince
Spartak Rosco
Virtual XI

GROUP 7
Chaos Allstars
Scunny Bunnies
Thelwallians
Walton's Warriors



Each team will play each other once. Points are awarded as per normal football rules - win = 3, draw = 1. Goals For and Goals Against will be based on your Fantasy score for that week. The top two from each league will progress automatically. The remaining two places for the Last 16 will be awarded to the best two third placed teams. If there is a tie for any position, the following will be used to determine placings/progression: Highest Points total (used only to determine the best of 3rd place); Goal Difference; Highest Goals For; number of 'real game' goals scored; fewest Yellow Cards; fewest Red Cards. If there still remains a tie, and I can think of no other simple method from the table, then a toss of a coin will decide. If my team is involved in a tie I reserve the right to nominate another team manager to perform the toss.

Draw dates and specific ties will be posted shortly.

As a forewarning, there will be no updates or Cup games between 5 November and 20 November as I am away on my annual pilgrimage to watch the sun come up. 8)

League table above followed the last game of September. Cup week was October. As you beat Fred in the cup, you are now also no longer in last place! :D Keep it up. League table is only shown at the end of each month as a rough guide.

Scunny Bunnies. .. .. 91 ..112 ... 3
Waltons Warriors .. .. 83 ... 97 ... 0


And with 1 game still to play in this 1st Round, we can already determine some Qualifiers:

QUALIFYING for Round 2: Rhysenbourg BK, Yesterday's Jam, Patdfb Rangers, Winter is Coming

These definite outcomes are all due to the next round game, e.g. Rhysenbourg on 6 points next play Team Teamy Team on 0 points. Regardless of that result, Firebreathers and Things cannot both either outpoint or match Rhysenbourg's points. And as 2 teams qualify automatically from each Group, Rhysenbourg will at worst finish in 2nd place.

NO teams are yet out of the chance of qualifying. Two 3rd placed teams will also progress. That gives the likes of Yours Truly some slim hope to hold on to. However, not only must 4th place win, their chances will depend upon the results of higher placed teams. So my team beating Cameron Diaz Fan Club may not be enough - I need ALL 3rd placed teams to LOSE. Strewth!

Still...GAME ON!

My standards have slipped. I have been pre-occupied and off colour this past week, so apologies for the lack of updates.

The league standings as at the end of November cannot be confirmed. Instead, I will post the league standings as at the end of the first Game Week of December. That should occur once the site updates the scores, so expect the table before the weekend.

As for the RGF Cup, I have everyone's scores for the 29th Nov, and am now trying to find the time to calculate everyone's totals. I'll hopefully have this sorted over the weekend at the latest.

Sorry, all!

The league table as at the end of the first game of December. Hopefully, I'll be back on form for January. And the final results for Round 1 of the RGF Cup will follow by the weekend.



# Team Manager GW TOT

26 Arc of a Diver Raffaele Sclafani 26 492
27 dste United Dan Stephenson 47 488
28 Maineieg FC jermaine green 37 479


Pleccy begins his surge ahead, the table already looking like a two horse race, with even Winter beginning to melt. At the other end, no-one can decide who wants the wooden spoon. Maybe a few Transfers would be appropriate, or a non-bench Captain. The January window will be open soon, and I believe there will be a Wild Card available for only that period. Use it wisely.

Well done, all. But just what the He11 was my team playing at? Oh, the shame - former winners of the trophy, now out in the 1st Round with three straight defeats. And after all the effort put in to the Cup administration etc..... Bah humbug!

The draw for Round 2 will be posted shortly. If I can be bothered; I might just take the ball home with me. Play with your own, everyone. Oh, you do already. Both of 'em, huh? No wonder I lost, playing the wrong ball game. Sheesh. :mrgreen:

Shouldn't Murdie Marauders have gone through? They have 4 points as opposed to Clueless United's 3.

And a one point win to squeak through to round 2 - my defence of the cup continues by the skin of its teeth.
