We’ve reached the Seventh Round of the Fantasy Football Scout Cup VII, as sponsored by Paddy Power, after 16 more teams were eliminated in the previous batch of matches. As we cast an eye over the weekend’s results and look to the next round, those still in with a shout should note that the upcoming fixtures will be played out over Gameweek 21 – the 10 fixtures on New Year’s Day do not count towards your points hauls:

Site regular Tony Hibberts Love Child squeezed into the last 16 by a one-point margin. Having won his tie 60-59, he now sits in 268th overall up – the highest-ranked manager remaining in the draw – and is up against Tdubb05 for a place in the Quarter-Finals.

Site moderator applebonkers is still in with a shout of snapping up the silverware. A 63 point-haul was enough to see him through last time around and earn him a spot against sim716 when the cup resumes in Gameweek 21.

The 2ndMan deserves a mention here. A tally of 72 points was higher than any other manager over the last round and sees him square up to 11 Men in Flight in the next round. Yes the Sess! racked up 71 points – the second-highest haul of Round 6 – and will now face FPLAaron, who, with an overall position of 464,000, is the rank outsider for the tournament.

Finally, Tal was the lowest-scoring manager to earn a spot in the next round after registering 54 points in Gameweek 19 – he now goes head-to-head with EricCantona_707.

As always, we wish good luck to the final 16 as they brace themselves for battle!

  1. Lots of early WC it seems, all the cool kids are sitting back and waiting

  2. I wish I could do Silva to Podolski! That would solve everything!

  3. New post everyone.

  4. Looking at this guys:

    de Gea
    Ward Distin Vlaar
    Walcott Hazard RavMo Silva
    Lukaku Suarez(c) Rooney
    Subs: 4.0, Barkley, Santon, Chester

    Going to risk Distin & Vlaar...got Santon to come in if either miss out. Think Rooney & Walcott will make it, they're too valuable to their teams considering the amount of other players that are missing for Utd and Arsenal.

    Silva out as my FT, 9.6 to spend. Cazorla a good shout?

    1. Thinking the same thing. Expensive though at 9.5

      • 1 year, 4 months ago
    2. Navas or Nasri? Have a gut feeling one of them might explode.

      • 1 year, 4 months ago
  5. Need some advice. Defence looks a little light and looking to offload silva for the next two weeks. Have nothing on the bench either. Silva and Collins out?

    Any help really appreciated

    Manonne

    Mert Shaw Lowton

    Wally Cabaye Hazard Barkley

    Lukaku Suarez (c) Rooney

    Chester Collins Silva

    1. May be Silva to YaYa, until Silva is back. This would give you some city coverage.
      Or may be Navas?

      • 1 year, 4 months ago
  6. Probably been asked many times earlier, but what are the chances of Rooney starting tomorrow?

    • 1 year, 4 months ago
  7. I can't believe I forgot about the cup on the site.... :(

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
