This evening we roll out the draw for the Second Round of the Fantasy Football Scout Cup VIII, sponsored by Paddy Power. The ties, which will be played over Gameweek 13, hand defending champion Wild Rover another tricky task – he’s up against Laser314, who sits just outside the top 5,000 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers.

Amongst the contributors, Granville goes head-to-head with dullardinho, with Mark’s podcast sidekick the highest-ranked of the pair, whilst our Suspension Tightrope expert Anarok is a slight underdog against DrD.

Looking at some of the former winners, Goonerdave is a hot favourite against viewoftheland – he’s almost 500,000 places ahead of his opponent in this week’s standings. Similarly, sleepingmaster is odds-on against ChickenDevil, though Jonty has a tougher time of it in an encounter with Birthday Sess. Donnellyc has been matched with 99% Dullard, who sits around the 1.3 million mark, while MCH undoubtedly has the hardest task of any our previous winners – he squares up to PGL NIL SATIS, who is ranked 532nd overall.

For those participants still involved, click here to see who stands in your way of progressing to the Third Round.

  1. Dzeko! Goal!

  2. On the lookout for a defender at no more than 5.2m. Already have Chico and Gabbidon.

    Caulker, Evans, Distin. Who would you pick of these?

    Or is there anyone else you could recommend?

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    1. Evans now, Distinct from GW16 IMO

      • 10 months, 29 days ago
      1. Evans is a good shout but might advise waiting a couple of weeks. Ron Vlaar an option to consider, I think.

  6. people saying Aguero's been called off due to some sort of injury....
    great.... now, i'm waiting to hear the same about rooney.... just perfect timing.... how many will i change with ONE FT....

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    1. Roo was rested

      • 10 months, 29 days ago
  7. Schahtor gone wild

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
  8. Talk of getting rid of Aguero seems ridiculous, does anyone actually know whether he was injured? I wouldn't be too surprised if he was being rested

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    1. i agree...

      • 10 months, 29 days ago

  14. 3 wins outta 3 for English teams on German soil in Champions league this season. Over to Man City to make it a full house away to Bayern next.

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    1. Well 3 isn't bad...

      • 10 months, 29 days ago
      1. Yaya banned from next game as well!

        • 10 months, 29 days ago
  15. Does anyone here rate Solbakken as a coach? What he did last time in charge at Copenhagen as well with this time when he just got re-hired is Absolute class. Too bad Wolves didn't give him more time.

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
  16. Not happy United have won 5-0 away.

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    1. You were close. :lol:

  18. Anyone got any news on RVP?
    Should I punt him?

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
  19. Ya Ya misses next match.

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    1. Tactical yellow - The commentator called it when he came on as sub. And he didn't exactly get it in a subtle way.

      • 10 months, 29 days ago
  20. Probably the most enjoyable United game so far this season, Giggs MOTM.

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
    • 10 months, 29 days ago
  21. Absolutely top class football. The sheiks of Manchester.

    • 10 months, 29 days ago
