2nd Preliminary Round is over and some teams are guaranteed passage to the Knock-Out Stages.

GROUP 1

Pos Team F A GD Points
1 Pea Wet Wit Scraps 117 61 +56 6
2 Phoenix 65 62 +3 3
3 Slagston United 59 63 -4 3
4 N-Gooners 64 119 -55 0

GROUP 2

Pos Team F A GD Points
1 For Foxes Sake FC 96 86 +10 6
2 Scotty Knows Best 99 82 +17 3
3 Utopian Dreams XI 80 70 +10 3
4 Weekend Players 56 83 -27 0

GROUP 3

Pos Team F A GD Points
1 FC Generic Team Name 110 90 +20 6
2 The Om Nyom Nyoms 97 98 -1 3
3 Chaos Allstars 65 77 -12 3
4 FC Fanta 65 72 -7 0

GROUP 4

Pos Team F A GD Points

1 Nites Table 80 67 +13 4
2 Firebreather Kopouts 76 69 +7 4
3 Wibble FC 76 90 -14 3
4 Franks Spankers mk3 77 85 -8 0

GROUP 5

Pos Team F A GD Points

1 Winning XI 117 49 +68 6
2 Last Of The Sputryks 95 64 +31 6
3 Arrogant Posers 62 103 -41 0
4 Metallicock XI 51 107 -56 0

GROUP 6

Pos Team F A GD Points

1 Sleepy FC 81 65 +16 6
2 Crystal Phallus 67 56 +11 3
3 Exceptional Elgin 55 70 -15 3
4 Team Alfie 68 80 -12 0

So far, guaranteed passage affords to For Foxes Sake FC, FC Generic Team Name, Last Of The Sputryks, Winning XI.

Pea Wet Wit Scraps should progress even if they lose, provided there are no massive winning margins. As for everyone else, especially Group 4, no final position is guaranteed. And sadly, for those on '0' points a stirling effort will be required for just a Runner-Up position.

So, plenty to still be decided, next week! And 'Well Done' me, and the other 3! :D

I'm clinging onto that top spot for dear life, I had a pretty fair-to-middling week, hopfully I can make a few wise changes for next week. I'm still 2nd in my works league.

I don't fully understand whats going on above and why some are guaranteed passage but i am not yet I have 6 points?

Massive clear out today, reckon the only really risky starter i've got now is Cueller as there's no guarantee he'll play to get me some points.

Amazed at how cheap Joe Hart is though.

Rupert, your mini-league is not cut and dried yet for you. You should qualify in any event, as 6 points is enough for a 3rd place runner up. However, unlike myself and Sureshot, you are not through outright at this stage.

You play Phoenix next. If you lose and Slagston win, and both games by a sizeable margin, that could put you into 3rd place, tying on 6 points each, and hoping the other Groups scorings grant favour to you. Whereas myself and Sureshot cannot be caught. Foxes Sake is also through as they play Weekend Players next, who is bottom and therefore with 2nd and 3rd place on 3 points each, Foxes can finish no worse than 2nd which is an automatic qualifying position.

With all due respect to Slagston and Phoenix, I don't expect your GD to suffer too greatly so you should qualify in 1st place. You are not the only team in your situation, either. It's just purely down to who you play last.

Hope this helps.

Cuellar is gonna have to go some to get a start - Davies has been immense and Laursen almost as good. I could only see him getting in if one of them gets injured or if Laursen screws up, as he does like getting forward a bit too much and does leave gaps.

Sounds like my best chance is the 'ol, I've spent £8mill on the guy so i'd best justify that by playing him a bit game. :lol:

Greetings, Ste.

Sorry you cannot join in the FFFA Cup this Season but, as of tomorrow there will be others joining you in the stands the cheer the rest of us on. I'm sure you will give some of us, at least, a run for our money in the League, though. :)

Um..., Cheesy, err, it looks like Slick is already mid-table (or will be when the table is updated)! So you are still bottom! :P
