FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

We’ve reached the semi-final stage of our second FFS Cup of the season.

The quarter-finals were resolved after the final two matches of Double Gameweek 35 on Wednesday evening and all of our semi-finalists broke the 100-point barrier in this round of fixtures.

Roger150 did likewise but was unfortunate to come up against
Ibra-gum, who prevailed by 123 points to 109.

Ibra-gum is the lowest-ranked manager left in the competition but his successful Bench Boost in Gameweek 35 lifted him 97,000 places to just outside the top 100k.

FFS moderator Rotation’s Alter Ego continued his fine season with a 110-71 win over HPCAMPBELL, who had an overall rank of 262 coming into Double Gameweek 35.

Rotation’s Alter Ego now has an OR of 1,716, with a Triple Captain chip still to use.

Our highest-ranked remaining manager is LOKOMOTIV, who is positioned at 1,298th – that being his best rank of the season so far.

LOKOMOTIV, who beat dark91 102-81 in the quarter-finals, also has a Triple Captain chip still up his sleeve.

Skogen89‘s successful deployment of the Bench Boost lifted him inside the top 20k for the first time since Gameweek 10 and helped see off Hi Ho Silva Lining by 115 points to 82.

Skogen89 is another FPL manager who still has their Triple Captain chip intact.

The full quarter-final results were as follows:

Hi Ho Silva Lining8262631vsSkogen8911517965
HPCAMPBELL71829vsRotation’s Alter Ego1101716
dark9181701011vsLOKOMOTIV1021298
Ibra-gum123101067vsRoger15010973131

The two Fantasy managers who lurk just outside the top 1k, Rotation’s Alter Ego and LOKOMOTIV, have been kept apart in the semi-finals.

The full draw is as follows:

    Lloris - Ryan
    Robertson - Laporte - Doherty - Duffy - Bednarek
    KDB - Mane - Eriksen - Son - Jota
    Aguero - Jimenez - Gray

    1FT 0ITB.

    Any suggestions? KDB needs to go. Want either Sterling or Salah, but would mean a hit in any case? BSilva could be an option, but feels a little "meh"

      Similar team to mine, same midfield.

      I'm very likely doing KDB + Eriksen ----> Salah + Babel

        Cheers. Have been considering something like that. Just unsure on the hit and losing Eriksen. Protecting leads in ML's so probably being a bit cautious due to that

    2. Riders of Yohan
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Could you do KDB to bsilva to get in firmino? Or downgrade eriksen to get in salah?

        Do you prefer Babel over Milivojevic?

        I’m also swapping KDB and Eriksen (keeping Son). And I’m thinking Salah and Mili...

      I'd do KDB to Bilva

      Bench 2:

      A) Jiminez (wat)
      B) Jota (wat)
      C) Doherty (wat)
      D) JWP (BOU)
      E) Llorente (WHU)

      Looking at punty TC options for the last GW.
      Zaha at home against Bournemouth is tempting.

      1. Riders of Yohan
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Would be bold. Thinking aguero if title race is still on

        • TONY123
          • 3 Years

          GW38 always has lots of goals in it, maybe Son vs Everton.

        • pingissimus

            Hazard?

            Leicester defence and his last blue match. 37 looks choicer of course

            Ryan / foster
            Robbo / trippier / Doherty / Duffy / bakery
            Eriksen / son / sterling / jota / doucoure
            Kun / vardy / jiminez

            A) vardy + doucoure -> long + mane
            B) vardy + eriksen -> long + salah
            C) eriksen -> d/b silva
            D) something else?

                      It might. But then still two weeks to go and Liverpool still chasing the league with good fixtures

                          Fair - you’ve convinced me. What about the TC?

                    My bench has some good fixtures: Foster (WOL), Jota (wat), Duffy (NEW), Valery (BOU)..would you change something here?

                    Ryan
                    Doherty/Laporte/TAA
                    Bernardo/Son/Moura/Mane
                    Jimenez/Aguero/Laca

                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      It's a coin toss whether to bench those players or start them. I also have similar dilemma. Just go with your gut.

                    I’ve seen predicted lineups without salah/mane, and people doubting the TC,

                    Is mane TC this week stil the best option? (No salah)

                    1. Riders of Yohan
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        I’m still debating the TC for liv. Considering Aguero against Brighton. Hedge my bets as Liverpool supporter

                        I own Mané but am leaning towards TAA/Sterling (not triple).

                      GTG?

                      Lloris
                      Taa Laporte Duffy
                      Mane Son Eriksen BSilva

                        GTG, I'm captaining Mané over Firmino but could go either way

                        • 2 Years
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Not sure on firminio captain, if doubts over mane I’d prefer son

                      Does anyone know what happened to Shaqiri and why he hasn't played recently?

                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          He did have an injury but still unsure why he hasn’t played recently

                          Just lack of confidence from Klopp, I guess. Hendo is suddenly being a bit creative, as well as Keita and the front three are scoring goals. So no need to change it up, I guess.

                        Current: Robertson - Salah - Eriksen - Gray

                        vs. Robertson - Salah - Mane - Llorente (-4)

                        vs. Robertson - Salah - Mane - Long (-4)

                        vs. Robertson - Salah - Firmino - Deulofeu (-4)

                        vs. Robertson - Salah - Firmino - Redmond (-4)

                        Or just swap Gray to Llorente/Long with FT, or keep Eriksen/Gray and save FT.

                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          I'd save FT tbh

                          Save I think

                        Hey guys
                        Who would you start?
                        Leno or Ryan
                        and
                        Doherty or Duffy

                        Arsenal looks shaky and are likely to concede against Leicester.
                        I also think that Watford can score against Wolves.
                        Maybe theres a chance Brighton could keep Newcastle at bay...

                        1. Balls of Steel

                          1 month, 29 days ago

                          Ryan + Duffy.

                          I think Brighton really have to go for this one against Newcastle as their last 2 games against Arsenal and Manchester City will be extremely difficult to get anything from. So it could be a very tight low scoring encounter this weekend and can see a clean sheet.

                            By go for it do you mean try really hard to get a 0-0? They seem to have given up trying to score

                            1. Balls of Steel

                              1 month, 29 days ago

                              It's now 6 league games since finding the back of the net, however they did manage to beat Newcastle away 1-0 earlier in the season. I can see a 0-0 or 1-0 again. All I want is a Duffy clean sheet and bonus points 🙂

                                  I'm happy with any rank that enables me to win the MLs.

                                  Getting into the Top 1k requires alot of luck I feel.

                            Looks like it. Kun out for a -4 is starting to make me nauseous.

                            Intend to block ML rival with a -4 to get Bobby F instead.

                              1. Save FT (and just have mane (TC) and Robbo)
                              2. Eriksen & Aguero -> Salah & Rash -4 (and then another -4 to get aguero back next week)
                              3. Aguero to firminio (but it’s just storing up trouble for next week)

                              1 I think makes most sense but Salah fear is pulling me to 2

                          Currently on 47k after falling away to 100k a few weeks ago but nailed BB last week.. Looking for a huge final 3 gwks to propel me to within a top 10k finish this season.

                            Very difficult but not impossible - go get it!

                          I was 41 points from 10k. Now I am 7 points. Hopefully, I get my 3rd 10k finish in the last 4 seasons.

                          Robbo for the TC?

                            I actually think it could work out very well if he gets any attacking returns and some bonus points.. Clean sheet is expected!

                          Tempted by Hojbjerg > Henderson for free and benching Jota instead

                            Nah play Jota and save ft

                            Do you think Milner is a better option?

                              If he plays he is a decent option this week given he is on pens

                          thoughts on KDB and Laca to Salah and DCL for a -4?

                            Salah -> Sterling next week

                          Start one of these:

                          A) Doherty (wat)
                          B) Valery (BOU)
                          C) Bednarek (BOU)

                          Or would you do Doherty to Matip for free?

                            Doherty as I can see both teams scoring in sou v bou game

                            Wouldn't do that Matip move with Wolves GW37 game ahead

                          How stupid is it to sell Aguero for Mane this week?

                            Are you using TC chip? Do you have Salah?

                              I have Salah and most likely to use the TC on him this week.

                              1. TheDragon

                                Then I think aguero -> mane -4 is crazy (unless you would TC Mane, then it’s just a little bold!)

                            I wouldn't be that brave, Kun great scoring record against Burnley

                          Are we confident we will see a leaked Liverpool line-up on here before deadline?

                          There will be some serious panic stations if any of the big guns are benched...

                            Bench is strong enough to cope and a captain switch to Son Or Aguero.

                            If there was a leak that mane was benched and Salah starts it would be the end of days on here
