FFS Cup

FFS Cup first round draw revealed for Gameweek 29

The first round draw of the second FFS Cup of 2018/19 has now taken place so managers can now discover if they made it through the qualifying stage.

Just under 1,200 managers applied for the 512 places available in the first round draw, with the Gameweek 28 qualifying score set at 56 (after hits) and an overall rank of 56,202 or better needed for those hitting that total exactly.

Seven former champions – Gribude, Wild Rover, MCH, Joe, 2EyedTurk, A Manager Has No Name and donnellyc – were exempt from the qualifying score and received a bye upon submitting their applications.

Angelneo was the lucky manager to squeak through in 512th place, while Nordeast was desperately unfortunate to miss out. He also had a Gameweek 28 score of 56 but was below the cut-off for overall rank, currently at 62,499.

    Are most people not using a chip for the upcoming blank gw using their transfers now just for players who play in gw31?

    1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Personally yes. I can get a similar team to anyone free hitting. If you only have 2or3 it wont work though

    2. Goat
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Currently have 8 for GW31 so don’t need to use a chip

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      For players that play in GW31 and 33. One approach is to use the FH to bring in the DGW32'ers once we know all the re-arranged fixtures.

      1. adidasOriginals
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        I've got 8(2 Everton though) for gw31 and 1ft for this week - most obvious transfer is Pogba for Son but not 100% on whether to pull the trigger! Thoughts?

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Son doesn't play GW31 and possibly not 31 if Brighton progress in the FA Cup.

          Have a look at this:

      Yep using transfers to get a full 11 out for gw31

      1. adidasOriginals
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Its tricky getting a decent 11 for gw31 - some scrappy fixtures that week!

    5. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Got all three left...considering the FH for blank gw...

  2. mdm
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Who to captain:

    A. Pogba
    B. Rashford
    C. Higuain
    D. Salah

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Torn between A and D.

    2. wanaj84
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      pogbong

    3 months, 19 days ago

    Lloris
    Doherty Luiz Shaw
    Sterling Son Pogba Salah
    Rondon Barnes Jiminez

    Hamer Kola AWB Gunnarsson

    I have 2.8m ITB but nothing really tempting me... better to save and have 2FT’s next GW??

  4. PL Ball
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Play Two:

    A) Wan-B (BUR A)
    B) Lascelles (WHU A)

                        Kola is prime for a transfer, Chilwell and go to next week with money and FTs to go?

                        Apart from trolling, can you please give me some reasons why not to captain hazard this gw? Have pogba who is currently my close second, just see and opportunity here to climb the rankings if he does well.

                          Doesn't have great form, plus others have better records against their opponents this weekend.

                            Pogba enough of a differential to climb

                              Is he? I thought he'd be popular

                                  23% leader in poll, hardly high effective ownership
                                  Definitely enough to climb if you think he's the best option. Safer than Hazard anyway

                            Which one out of these 4 should I play:

                            Start two in my draft team from Snodgrass, Stones, Mitrovic, Chilwell?

                            Kola to Matip for a hit with BGW in mind - yay or nay?

                            I’m thinking of bringing him in to start instead of Mitrovic; the hit will be needed at some point to get enough players out in BGW31 so why not now....

                            I'm playing bench boost with the following bench (only downer is keeper). Is it wise? The only other week I see a potential bench boost is gwk 38.. Leicester may concede but after what TAA and Robertson did wingbacks can trouble Watford - Barnes I reckon has a goal in him too this week.
