FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The draws for the fifth round of the FFS Members Cup and the sixth round of the FFS Cup have taken place following the completion of Gameweek 19.

As planned, we skipped Gameweek 20 due to the swift turnaround between the two sets of fixtures.

We’re down to the final 32 Fantasy managers in both tournaments after the Boxing Day games.

The sixth round draw in full can be accessed here.

Our highest-ranked manager in round five (more of whom below) made it through to the round of 32.

Teddy Brewski, still chasing a cup double, beat Jeanz 70-39 in Gameweek 19 and will next face robharr.

Our only all-top 10k clash in Gameweek 20 sees beetlejuice take on Mataatti, who saw off another manager inside the top 10,000, Bury94, in round five.

Two of our three remaining site users who lie outside the top 150k, Coquelino and A Team Has No Name, meet each other in round six.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

The scores from the fourth round of the 2019/20 FFS Members Cup are available by clicking here.

The fifth round draw in full can be accessed here.

Our highest-ranked entrant left in either competition is now up to a remarkable 14th in the world.

frankiem, who first entered the top 1k four months ago, saw off sandgrounder 66-64 in Gameweek 19 and will meet Emm7980 in the fifth round.

ActorJeff, who has an overall rank of 630th, also progressed and will next play OlivierGiroudsHair.

A further seven managers in the round-of-32 draw are also in the top 10k after Gameweek 20.

One of those, the aforementioned TeddyBrewski, will face moderator TorresMagic in the first Gameweek of 2020.

    I believe Ings will rest this GW
    what about TAA? Kane?

    1. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      All 3 will start

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        This

    2. Johnny Drama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Ings to rest again?

    3. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think/hope Ings will play and be rested for the midweek FA cup game. 90% sure TAA will play, maybe an outside chance they'll give Milner a run out at right back though. Kane will play.

    Great 2019 for Liverpool; 31 wins, 5 draws and just 1 defeat in 37 league games. Wonder how quick they'll have the league wrapped up?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      If everything goes as expected, they should be fine by GW30

      1. Make America Greta Again
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Could skew dgw selections.

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          How so?

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      How about now?

  3. Johnny Drama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    41p last gw and went from 71k to 207k.. such frustrating..

    Anyone did worse?

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I've gone from 77k to 260k in the last 4 weeks, funny thing is I like my team and its similar to teams who have done well. Basically down to 3 straight captain disasters.

      1. Johnny Drama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        That sucks mate!
        If I would have stucked with my team instead of WCing in GW 19, I would have saved 30+ points in just two GWs... Well well, hopefully it pays of

  4. OldBenKenobi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Struggling on my captain pick:

    A) Salah (SHU)
    B) KDB (EVE)
    C) Vardy (new)

    All great picks this week....
    😯

    Currently on Salah....

    1. Nunoooooooooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Currently on him too but still undecided. Due a haul surely?!

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah.
        Head says Salah
        But I can see Vardy doing the baby celebration especially with Newcastle leaking goals....

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Vardy

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      C

    4. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      C the safe pick
      But a Salah(c) haul would send you up the ranks

    5. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Currently on Vardy just because I'm 99% sure he'll start (FYI I am never 100% sure about anyone starting!). My hunch is Salah and KDB will both start as well, but as an abject coward it only takes a hint of doubt to scare me.

  5. ChinaCraig6
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Who is a must have on a WC?

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      TAA, KDB, Salah / Mané, Vardy...

    2. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      3 pool

    3. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      2 goal keepers
      5 defenders
      5 midfielders
      3 forwards

    4. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      None really.

      As many as you can get from top teams.

  6. Nunoooooooooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Am I gtg? Any changes to players/bench/capt??

    Pope
    TAA - Soy - Rico
    Salah(c) - Mane - KdB - Martial
    Vardy(vc) - Jiminez - Ings

    Martin - Cantwell - Kelly - Lund

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      If I had Salah and mane I'd captain mane.

      I have Salah and just can't trust him.

    2. wulfranian
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Good to go.

  7. Balls of Steel
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Guys, is Mahrez likely to start next match considering he played 90 minutes against SU?

    1. Cadenza
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      More likely to play until Dilva is back.

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        So basically monitor Dilvas fitness situation?!

  8. CFC1990
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    If you have TAA and are looking for a second defender, is it worth saving the money and getting VVD over Robbo

    Similar points so far and VVD saves you 0.6m

    1. Johnny Drama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Gomez could be a good pick too, saves you even more

    2. Nunoooooooooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      If going VVD I would get Gomez and save even more £££

    3. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I'd say yes, think they'll be on similar points at end of season.

    4. Totti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      i answered you mate in the bottomed post 🙂
      i said it's pointless
      leave alli and TAA is enough for now

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        may be before the DGW

      2. CFC1990
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah might be.

        I'm just thinking Liverpool will tighten up at the back and grind out results.

        They have 4 CS in row mate

    5. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I’d want TAA and Robbo especially during the DGW

    6. Relaxing
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I am having the same consideration and I think Robbo is the better option. It's only potential rotation causing me a bit of doubt with champions league fixtures just around the corner

  9. Totti
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    reposting looking for replies

    guys what do u think on wood for one week punt against aston villa?

    1. Syd.
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Good shout

      Villa are gash

      Grealish wonderful player he is can be a complete liability at times

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Can work but thats what I thought while picking Pukki

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        and what happened mate 🙂

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Nice one pointer

  10. The Head-Ake
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Ramsdale - (Button)
    (Kelly) - (Lundstram) - Aurier - Soyuncu - TAA
    Grealish - Maddison - KDB - Alli - Mane(c)
    Vardy(vc) - Jiminez - (Greenwood)

    What do I do? I've thought this over and I don't mind losing Lundstram for the next 5 game weeks till I get him back in. Want to get Martial in. I have 1 FT and 0.0 ITB.

  11. MESSINHO
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Ryan
    TAA - Rico - Soyuncu
    Mane - KdB - Martial - Alli
    Vardy (c) - Tammy - Jimenez

    Subs: Button - Kelly - Hayden - Lundstram

    2 FT, 0.7 ITB

    Really don't know what to do with my FTs. Thinking about Hayden -> Cantwell for a better bench.

    Any ideas?

    1. Test Eagles
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      That move to cantwell makes a lot of sense unless you fancy Traore and start him?

  12. CelticBhoy1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Thoughts on Grealish > Martial for free?

    (Got Rashford)

    1. dshv
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I did that

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Think Grealish's run could be over, Villa really struggling now and poor upcoming fixtures too

      1. CelticBhoy1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Except Man City their fixtures are quite good

    3. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yes. There are better options, and he is too fond of yellow cards.

  13. dshv
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Pope
    Soy kelly rico baldock lund
    Mane kdb martial alli dendo
    Kane ings vardy

    Gtg ?? Captain ???

  14. kingcolesy
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    To wildcard or stay. 2FT in bank, thinking of just Button to Mcgovern OR...

    Ramsdale (Button)
    TAA Lund Soy Aurier Rico
    Mane KDB Alli Maddison (Dend)
    Vardy Abraham Rashford

    Aurier + Maddison + Alli to Salah + Traore + Simpson + lose 0.6m value

    I am pretty happy with the team for fixtures. Could also have Kelly and Sterling for Maddison and Alli. Any advice, stick? Just do the keeper transfer and roll 2 transfers?

    1. Barnes Owl
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Your team is great, definitely don't WC. Don't waste a transfer on Button. Just downgrade Aurier and roll transfer?

      1. kingcolesy
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks. I just noticed Aurier roates so well with Lundstrum for the next 4 weeks, then maybe I would sell aurier then, who would I sell Aurier for? If I did, then it would be the Rico show

  15. Hazardous1983
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Rich or alli to martial or abraham to jiminez

    Which 1 for free transfer. Or save

  16. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Pope (Button)
    TAA, Soyuncu, Kelly (Rico, Lundstram)
    Salah (c), KDB, Alli, Zaha, (Dendonker)
    Vardy, Rashford, Ings

    0 FT, 0.1m ITB

    Is save FT, then look at ways of replacing Zaha and maybe Pope with 2 FTS next GW my best option ?

  17. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    GTG? Have 1FT and 1.6ITB.

    Henderson
    TAA/Soy/Targett
    Mane/KDB/Dele/Grealish
    Vardy/Rash/Tammy

    Button/Rico/Dendo/Lund

    1. Test Eagles
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      GTG mate, save the FT

  18. Strchld
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Would you do this for a hit?

    Kane and Alli out, Salah and Jimenez in.

    Was planning to do it next week for free, but cant trust Spurs so much.

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      God know

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        *no

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      no plz stop that

  19. Barnes Owl
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Winston Reid, 3.9m defender for West Ham. He's been working his way back from injury and was finally named on the bench against Leicester.

    I'm considering bringing him in as bench fodder but does anyone think there's a chance he could work his way into the starting 11? I don't know much about him so would love to hear from West Ham fans?

    1. wulfranian
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      No one knows if Reid will start.Tough fixtures though.If you want a 3.9 defender then Reid is the best choice.If you want a 4.0 defender then Williams(Manu) is the best choice.Kiko(4.2) and Stephens(4.3) are the next best choices imo.

  20. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Keep Richarlison for (mcy BHA whu)

    or get Martial (ars, NOR Liv)
    (for double up with Rashford) on free transfer?

    Plan would be to move out Rashford by week 24 to fund triple Liverpool

    Afternoon all!! Hope everyone has had a joyful xmas!! Anyone care to run there eyes Over my team and where to improve most welcome!! Thank in advance!
    Gazzaniga
    TTA Söyüncü C.Taylor
    Salah KDB Alli Martial
    Vardy Rashford Ings
    Subs. Henderson Baldock Lundstram Hayden

    1. Schafsalat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Your starting 11 looks really good! If anything you could maybe change C. Taylor. Maybe to Holgate if you have a 0.2 ITP? Burnley fixtures really take a turn for the worse the next few GWs.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah that’s true mate think I give him the Villa match, Holgate a great idea mate especially given I’m a Barnsley fan too and he’s a product of our fantastic academy, I have 1.5 in the bank too.

  22. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Hanley or Brandon Williams?

  23. mcgrejam
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Thinking of doing WC to this...

    A)
    Ramsdale
    Soyuncu, TAA, Lundstram
    Martial, Salah, KDB, Mane, Maddison
    Jimenez, Vardy

    B)
    Ramsdale
    Soyuncu, TAA, Baldock
    Salah, KDB, Mane, Maddison
    Vardy, Calvert-Lewin, Rashford

    No playing subs in either...A or B please?

    1. Garfield1001
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Hays your current squad

    2. Garfield1001
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      And it’s a no to both if no playing subs

  24. Holmes
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Saiss time...

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      how much is he?

  25. Totti
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    guys who do u think will score more points next gameweek?

    A) aguero wood troare

    B) rashford jimenez grealish

  26. Hazardous1983
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Start grealish or richarlison

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      both will strugle in my opinion
      but will go with richarlison
      might score in a counter attack

  27. Klip Klopp
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Can I get some advice on how to improve this poor side?

    Ramsdale
    Lundstrum, Rico, TAA
    Grealish, Alli, Salah, KDB
    Vardy, Rashford, Abraham

    Button, Kelly, Tomori, Dendoncker

    1FT and 0.2 itb

    A. Alli to Martial?
    B. Sort out my defence?

    1. Test Eagles
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I’m in exactly the same boat except with Cantwell and Traore as my rotating 4th mid. Tempted to shift Alli as he’s been inconsistent last few GWs. Martial just doesn’t excite me, but he’s I great form!

      Tomori > Brighton defender
      Alli > Martial / Traore

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      May be you can save
      and play kelly lundstram and TAA

      leave alli

    3. brithepie
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      B

      Maybe Tomori > bench fodder
      then next week, Kelly/Rico > Soy/Gomez/Sidibe

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      With similar sides cropping up on this site but still seeing weekly 30 point swings with a couple of decisions good or bad, I cannot help but think we get back to basics.
      Is Alli to martial anything but sideways?
      Is your back 5 any different to 90% percent of experienced teams out there?
      Not really, is it?
      Tomori, Dendo, Rico, Kelly, Ramsdale Grealish you can look at but their prices are so low, there are little alternatives.
      This rant is another way of saying I have no clue! (Smile)
      I got 46 points this week with a large dose of bad luck in terms of benching and poor performances.
      Getting into the top 5k was relatively easy a few years ago compared to today. There are too many FPL punters out there with the same info and advice. My feeling is the game is getting stale and needs an face lift.
      Getting rid of chips, no matter how appealing they may be is probably the way to go.
      The weird thing is you could have a 1 mil rank or a 10k rank, purely by a captain pick.
