We roll out the draw for the Fifth Round of the Fantasy Football Scout Cup IX and Members Cup IV, as sponsored by Paddy Power, this evening. In the former competition, Chewy’s role as giant-killer is already over – having knocked out defending champion Tdubb05 in the previous round, he was sent packing by Pappa Shango, falling to defeat by 49 points to 43:
MCH remains the only previous winner with a chance of repeating the feat – he saw off the challenge of ManofKent by 56-43 and now squares up to Tractor Boys for a place in the last 32. Other match-ups to catch the eye include Daniel vs Gribude, Denial v ChrisGee and Pukhraj v Triggerlips.
The highest scoring manager of Round 4 was Bucketproof, who registered an impressive 81-point haul in Gameweek 32. Chrisgee is the highest ranked manager remaining in the Scout Cup, currently sitting in 753rd spot in the overall standings.
A full list of last week’s results is here, and the draw for the Fifth Round, which kicks off this Saturday lunchtime as City take on Southampton at the Etihad and lasts right through to Monday evening, when Spurs welcome Sunderland to the Lane, can be found here.
In the FFS Members Cup IV, there are a number of eye-catching draws for Gameweek 33. These include In tommy we trust vs steadmania, Dullardinho vs Gloria Kanchelskis, goaldigger vs HuttondressedasLahm and Anonymous vs Trigg.
A special mentioned goes to Brunei Futbol DNA, who was the top scoring manager of the previous round – he racked up 73 points in Gameweek 32. Tmidrew is the top-ranked manager left in the last 32, currently sitting in 893rd spot in the overall standings.
As always, good luck to all those still in with a shout of the silverware.
