Heading into the Fourth Round of the Fantasy Football Scout Cup, as sponsored by Paddy Power, we’re searching for a new manager to lift the trophy after defending champion Wild Rover was beaten by Hillbillypete in last weekend’s head-to-head.
This means we’re down to the last 128 Fantasy managers, with Hillybillypete now set to face The Boot this time around. There are just two former champions left in the hat – Goonderdave, who takes on Pryston North EndFC, and sleepingmaster, who is up against a top 10K-ranked opponent in Albany City.
Moderators Applebonkers and Spencer remain in with a shout of the silverware – they’ll face Noyb and HyperloopingCrazy respectively over Gameweek 16.
Looking at some of the site regulars still in the draw, the likes of EpicFAIL is up against Championblues. The Sarjeant looks a rank (poor pun alert) outsider in his match up with Eddy3161, who currently sits inside the top 5,000, the 3rdTurd (2,804 overall) is the favourite to see off g-doo (61,612) , while old-school poster RaspingDrive goes up against Inspector Gadget.
Three of the top 1,000 FPL managers are lying in wait in the next round. They are Tony Hibbert’s Love Child, who is up against Real Mayonnaise, giuliop11, who will square up to luke89carpenter, and Snella FC, who shall take on Andy Paps for a place in the Fifth Round next weekend.
As always, we highlight the top-scoring manager across the previous set of fixtures. Last week Bedknobs and Boonsticks and Woeisme both registered a round-high tally of 85 points – this time around, Goaldigger and Ajax stand in the way of the in-form duo’s respective progress.
Once again, good luck to those still in with a shout.
For Gameweek 29

“He's working hard at it and so are we. Sometimes we play well but not all the time. We don't have luck on our side. It's easy to point the finger at someone but I'm not like that. We have to do better ourselves.”Robin Van Persie on criticism of David Moyes.
