FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The first round of our second open-to-all Fantasy Premier League cup competition of 2019/20 took place in a shorter-than-expected Gameweek 29.

Manchester City v Arsenal was due to take place on Wednesday evening, of course, but the postponement of that match has brought the Gameweek to a premature conclusion.

FIRST ROUND RECAP

All results from the first round can be viewed here.

Six of our nine former winners who were in round one fell at the first hurdle.

Only Joe, Wild Rover and reigning champion Philman made it through to the next stage from this select group.

Joe defeated PELA0409 by 50 points to 35, while Wild Rover was a 45-42 winner over bitm2007.

Philman’s defence of his title began with a 55-46 victory over Baps Sniffer.

Ex-champions Gribude, Sleeping master, Leon Harris, A Manager Has No Name, TH14 and Lokomotiv all bowed out, meanwhile.

Gribude and Lokomotiv were comprehensively beaten 74-28 and 83-42 by Gilbo88 and Rolls-Royce respectively, while in a much closer contest, A Manager Has No Name was edged out 37-36 by spurs.

Pirate Angel, Lulli XI and Saubarna Deep were the conquerors of TH17, Sleeping master and Leon Harris, with all three of those head to heads settled by seven FPL points or fewer.

On the editorial staff front, andy85wsm beat Carlton Palmer 67-41, while editor DavidMunday815 was defeated 58-47 by Binny.

Three of the 512 managers in the first round of the FFS Cup were inside the top 1k at the point of the Gameweek 29 deadline and they all progressed in round one.

rdamjam, who now sits at 53rd in the world, is the highest-ranked manager in the competition and saw off Wayne.burrows by 67 points to 63.

Our two other site users inside the top 1,000 before (and after) this weekend were prbaker1980 and Bury94, who ended the challenges of RedLightning and Chara’s Rangers respectively.

We now have another round two representative with a triple-figure overall rank after the completion of Gameweek 29.

PHILIPK overtook the OR of round one opponent GrecianDan with an 83-44 success and now lies in 965th place in the world.

The highest score of the first round was Dr Rabotnicki‘s 101, while the likely draft also hit a century.

Both managers used their Bench Boost chips in Gameweek 29.

SECOND ROUND DRAW

The full draw for the second round is available to view here.

Joe, Wild Rover and Philman next face Chalky77, faux C and aufeld respectively in their bids to win second FFS Cup titles.

Njdemon has the unenviable task of stopping rdamjam, while stamfordbridge, who finished fourth in our first FFS Cup of 2019/20, is up against another manager inside the top 1,000, prbaker1980.

JohnBlack faces PHILIPK and Kvelertak squares off against Bury94 in two ‘top 10k v top 1k’ clashes.

Santigold v theonefjef is our only other all-top 10k tie in round two.

HOW DO THE CUP COMPETITIONS WORK?

The FFS Cup is very similar to the Fantasy Premier League’s own cup game.

Entrants who qualify for the first round were randomly drawn against each other and the winner of the tie is whoever has the highest score from that Gameweek, minus points spent on transfers (like in the original game and in head-to-head scores).

In the event of a draw, the manager highest in the overall FPL rankings after the tie will progress.

WHAT IS THE GAMEWEEK SCHEDULE?

The FFS Cup competition will be played out according to the following proposed Gameweek schedule:

Fantasy Football Scout Cup Round Dates
Qualifying – Gameweek 28

Round 1 – Gameweek 29
Round 2 – Gameweek 30

      - many FFS posts in the middle of the deadzone in summer of 2023.

          Yep, we could all be playing Fantasy Thunderdome by 2023.

    Does anyone else have a growing backlog of recent (and not so recent) blockbuster AAA console games that could fill a 14 day working from home period

    I'm halfway through RDR2, Zelda BOTW, and also want to start God of War

    Might delay all of those to play through The Last Of Us again though (for anyone who hasn't seen it - watch the intro on YouTube - puts Coronavirus into perspective!)

      Too busy playing EU4 to get into any console games!

        It does look very more-ish to be fair

    2. Goro Majima
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 25 days ago

      My backlog could fill 14 months at home!

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…

      I'd need the Infected to get Mrs Fulchester first before I could do anything like that.

        Or we could all just have a big group "Watch with FFS" of 28 Days Later to get in the mood 🙂

        Followed up with 28 weeks later

      You could try to do 100% of BOTW - would take more than a couple of weeks!

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        I actually don't want to finish it - have been putting off going into Hyrule Castle for weeks as it would mean the journey has come to an end 🙁

        Genuinely breathtaking experience, goes beyond a game

        1. Greek Freak
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Ah, I know the feeling - I get it after the halfway point of most Zelda games. I'm currently playing BOTW for the second time (first was in 2017-18) and doing things in a different order. There's not that much excitement in exploring the world now (I hope there are fewer empty spaces in the sequel) but there are so many different ways to play the game it's still interesting enough.

      Sega Megadrive going for around 50 quid.

    6. Cruz88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      If I work from home, I'll have to actually be making one of these games

      If you've not played it then Odyssey will fill about 80 hours quite easily

      Corona will go down as the biggest conspiracy since human kind began.

      The fact that face masks are running out/in short supply, you just know there are many small group making a fck load of money behind the scenes.

      1. FOO FIGHTER

          *groups*

          If you ever wanted to buy some blue chip stocks, it's surely getting closer to a "good" time

          AAPL, AMZN, FB, INTC, JNJ... all a lot cheaper today than two weeks ago

          Maverick makes it sound much cooler

        2. Holmes

          Not much, very low chance of backfiring

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          All the luck should do the lottery

        2. Qaiss
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          That looks like a team from someone on here tho lol

        3. Benjustjamin
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Banging team, can't be a casual with a team so well balanced.

          1. baps sniffer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Yes, that is team planned in order to save FH31, nothing actually wrong with it. Smooth or lucky week for him tbh.

        4. FOO FIGHTER
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Autosubs = the reason to play injured players.

            Casual heaven.

            Would love for the autosub function to be tossed in the bin.

            1. Benjustjamin
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 25 days ago

              Let's toss captaincy, chips and transfers too aye? Then you will be number 1 every year ensuring it's a skill game

            2. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 25 days ago

              May as well make it an 11 player game or 15 and all play.

              1. Fudgy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 25 days ago

                Just scrap the captain is the best idea

                1. Benjustjamin
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 25 days ago

                  Non of this should happen, the game is made, stop moaning and play it.

                  Luck in a game is what makes them so addictive

                  1. Old Man
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 25 days ago

                    This - a little bit of luck makes for a much more enticing experience.

              2. FOO FIGHTER
                  2 months, 25 days ago

                  Luck is all you need 😉

                  Do you play this game based on luck for starting a flagged player?

                  I might as well have have a listed player in my starting lineup which has gone out on loan with KDB as 1st bench every week.

                  1. Benjustjamin
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 25 days ago

                    Then you have wasted a slot in your team. Nobody knew for sure is KDB was going to play and the Robertson news dropped too early for some to do anything about it

                    1. FOO FIGHTER
                        2 months, 25 days ago

                        Makes no difference. Then two slots in my starting lineup with out on loan players with Salah and TAA autosub every week.

                        How many use 2nd and 3rd sub?

                        1. Benjustjamin
                          • 5 Years
                          2 months, 25 days ago

                          Hardly any, but how many people rotate their bench each week to put in the player with a favourable fixture?

                          1. FOO FIGHTER
                              2 months, 25 days ago

                              TAA and Salah are pretty much fixture proof considering they are the two players with the highest scores in the game.

                              The will sub in for players scoring 0 and I still have the rest of my midfield to get the points.

                              1. TorresMagic™
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                • 10 Years
                                2 months, 25 days ago

                                They are just starters then who come on at the end of the GW, big deal. You have one autosub & a 2nd GK for other issues.

                                1. FOO FIGHTER
                                    2 months, 25 days ago

                                    I will actually have an advantage with 2 players out on loan at rock bottom prices from GW1 starting for me being subbed in via two premiums.

                                    1. Benjustjamin
                                      • 5 Years
                                      2 months, 25 days ago

                                      Haha r u srs

                                    2. TorresMagic™
                                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                      2 months, 25 days ago

                                      You could just bench them for the same result.

                                    3. FOO FIGHTER
                                        2 months, 25 days ago

                                        I could start 4 players out on loan in my starting 11 scoring 0 each game and have an extra 2 million for 4 autosubs plus whatever value they get going ahead.

                                        2 months, 25 days ago

                                        You could bench the 4 also, same difference. Some players spent the minimum on the bench in GW1, that's why Lundstram was popular with Button.

                                          How many out of your 11 haul every week?

                                            2 on a god wek 😀

                                            So 4 premiums on your bench autosub plus another 2 or 3 hauling in your starting eleven and 4 who get 0 points at 4m each which gives you the £'s.

                            That's not a casual team, it's really well balanced and has loads of players lined up for BG31.

                            It's not a million miles from mine either, granted I don't have such a jam-filled bench.

                            Good team to be fair

                            2 months, 25 days ago

                            Casual is now considered a derogatory and somewhat prehistoric term

                            The preferred nomenclature is officially "Nonchalant"

                            To be perfectly honest, I find your comment quite arrogant, and pretty embarrassing for somebody calling himself, not been an "casual"! Shame on you!

                              Not arrogant, just annoyance that the dedicated hard-working professionals like us never get the same filthy jam that the spoon-fed casuals do

                            This is the ultimate casual. I have never seen this.

                            Corona gives 9 + 12 + 19 = 40 pts !!!

                            That is one extra GW !!!

                            The ultimate jammmy

                              Why is it casual to bench Lundstram for Robertson. I don't understand this whole "casual" nonsense?

                            Someone in my mini league forgot to manage his squad this week...had KDB cap, Mane VC, O'Connell autosub on and Auba buried 3rd on his bench. About a 20 point jammy turnaround.

                          Bruno or Mane with Salah? Can upgrade Fleck and Fernandez with the funds to Martial and Alonso?

                          1. Benjustjamin

                            Mane + Salah combo been so good to me

                            1. Dynamic Duos

                              Yeah me to but is A better than B as a combo maybe I could lose Aubameyang for Giroud, instead of having Martial?

                                I would get rid of Auba, arsenal will soon have nothing to play for and he is a liability unless you have the patience to keep him through all the 2's

                                  I would strongly disagree that arsenal have nothing to play for. They have a game in hand on the teams around them and potentially 5pts off Chelsea who sit 4th and 5th gets into the CL qualification. So I would argue they are very much in the running for this and will be as motivated as any team in the league right now

                                      Yep. Haha. But a very negative one at that in fairness. Just saying they are as in the mix as the likes of Utd wolves & Shef Utd. With nice fixtures

                                        As a neutral, the teams you mentioned are all better than arsenal. Your defence should be headlining a comedy gig

                          Can't even be bothered doing my transfers now and I'm top 30k 🙁 I know the season is over soon ... This sucks

                            I'd wait before you think about any chips or transfers. Prem likely cancelled next week like rest of European football.

                            Hardly perfect when GK plays attacker.
                            Players who could hurt mainly Jota and other Pool defenders

                            1. TONY123
                              • 4 Years

                              True but tough to avoid having players on opposing teams in 31, at least the risk is spread. If I don't get Sarr simply because I have Pope and then Sarr hauls I would be punished twice.

                              1. TorresMagic™

                                Perhaps Pope isn't the correct GK then.

                              This lowers the ceiling, but from expected pts of view it isn't a problem actually.

                                Do you think Pope is the best GK for GW31 apart from teams you'll have 3 outfield players from?

                            Pretty template. I think I may punt on Aurier over Saiss and Jota over Sarr

                              PVA may be a good even though he plays Liverpool but I agree with Jota

                              Aurier? After his performance last night?

                              I own him, however I absolutely don't expect him to play GW31

                                I did say punt. See if he starts this week otherwise I'll not bother

                            How many do you have now? I'd rather take a couple of hits and have 8-9 players than waste a valuable chip

                              I have 7 players for 31, but I'm annoyed that Dendoncker takes up my 3rd Wolves spot alongside Saiss and Jimenez.

                              I've only got three! This means that by default I have loads of dgw players so should be reasonably easy to navigate dgw's. I really have no choice

                            great team but surely you can get close to it without FH?

                            with -4 I'm looking at

                            Basically, yes. As I've said below, the points/ranking swing at the higher levels are highly likely to be about the lowest of the season as ownership will be so similar. Main chance is for lower ranked teams to hope for some sizeable home wins, bump up the average and sneak past dead teams.

                            Not sure about Antonio. Think I'd prefer Deeney, Jota or another Spurs mid/defender

                            Don't believe rumours. Best to way until Friday/Saturday and not stress it.

                              Well I trust the ITK guys. I also like scenarios in order to better tinker with my team.

                              You are right I agree woth you but doing nothing with our fpl team is kind of contrary to what the game is so I am pro some rumors.

                              I.e what to do with Auba if postponed, what about Wolves? Adama out for a hit for Bruno ? Etc etc etc.

                              Thanks.

                              Any rumors ?

                                Unless you are FH31, you may as well wait. Auba is an obvious sell if postponed i.e. 2 blanks in a row.

                                Rumours won't help. Wait until Friday/Saturday, doing any moves now is too risky.

                                  Oh, the painful and anxious fpl wait... only if that was my strong side 🙁

                                  Thanks guys you speak full logic, nonetheless some itk info like we had for the City Arsneal double would be lovely. They became reality afrtwords .

                                  P. S. If Auba is out who are we getting? I planned Wood but he has City away

                                    I don't remember any ITK predicting that tonight's game would be called off for coronavirus before the deadline last Saturday?

                                    Depends if you are FHing in 31 I guess and if you need Auba to become someone that plays that week?

                            I think it's very clear that this season will be finished before gmw38!!with that in mind,shouldn't we play all the chip asap instead of playing them as we planned??

                              I am considering this too. Dont want to waste my chips and the casuals to beat me because they have used theirs

                                  Thing is we could get a lot of DGWs now and the chips could be useful there... it's a risk.

                                This season simply can't be finished until all matches have been played. It would be huge legal problem.

                                Probably doing only short term transfers is the new patient FPL Ville Ronka style.

                                Focus only about the next GW since we dont know what will Happen.

                                I.e . Bruno should be prime target even though he has a blank upcoming

                                    When you really think about it, pretty much every non-premium player or non-GK is a short-term transfer. You don't buy an in-form cheap striker to keep him for the rest of the season; you know you'll be selling him when his goals dry out.

                                  I love listening to and reading a lot of the FPL content now available and it's inevitable as the quantity mushrooms and the number of seasons grows, it'll be harder and harder to come up with genuine insights.

                                  Most of my analysis could be summed up in lol variance.

                                  That said, I feel the obsession with talking about BGW 31 on pods and articles is odd. The important thing was being aware of this three weeks ago and planning a general strategy. Now we are basically there, there is hardly anything to say about it. The obvious picks are very obvious. Most people will have extremely similar teams and the points spread is highly likely to be smaller than almost any other GW amongst "serious" players, with the effects actually more evident in 29, 30 and 32.

                                    That is partly incorrect. We have many different chip strategies. Some also decided to get C Auba for last gw like me and others still had Vardy (and my brother akso Barnes and Lundstram).

                                      That's my point. People are getting there in different ways, which is the interesting part that will impact scores. The actual week itself is very unlikely to produced huge rank swings among active teams.

                                  The solution is simple.

                                  Everything stops.

                                  Whole world is in quarantine for 3 weeks.

                                  Nothing works.

                                  Those who are still ill stay in hospital until they rehab.

                                  Everyone else continues with life after 3 weeks.

                                  Those that are ill get well.

                                  Crisis ends.

                                  However not sure the world leaders will accept this and the economy will tank temporarily on this.

                                        Will be doing well to have a LMS winner this season even if it ends in GW37.
                                        Might need to bump up eliminations to get a winner quicker.

                                  Could FPL not be set up so that people get the points for the players they have in a rearranged game back-dated, i.e. if the players they chose play in the rearrangement? Can't be that hard to work out for programming gurus.

                                  Then anyone who misses out on a postponed game for any reason still has a chance of some points. Making poor team selections with blanking is one thing but things like weather and this virus are not football related.

                                    suggested this, was poo poo’d by salty KdB owners with points on their bench 😉

                                    They could if they wanted to, but they won't. They care about how many players they can say they have in how many territories around the world not our weird clique on here.

                                    Why don't we just award them their expected points, rather than their actual point, therefore removing the luck factor.

                                    Wait till Saturday morning.
                                    Get an extra Wolf or two is a safe move.

                                    Relax until Friday.
                                    Find out the Martial news etc.
                                    Also the chip plan is needed to give better advice.

                                      Cheers guys it seems waiting until Friday is the general advice. I also have all chips available. Presuming everyone is fit what player would you recommend? Thanks

                                        Depends if you free hit in 31.
                                        With only 5 players including Rico, it might be best to.
                                        You can get any player this week with that plan.

                                  Is it worth triple captaining Salah at home vs Villa or doing it during a DGW before 37

                                    DGW maybe more lucrative imo

                                      Dropping 50k playing your FH 2nd MATCH CANCELED (I feel for all you WCders) with 5 players to play one being captain but many on a CANCELED match having started injured KDB *as casual as you can get* over two games *knowing he is injured* autosub *enter here* vc on Salah or Mane getting bench wankery points.

                                      It really does not matter if you had KDB on your WC or FH.

                                      Just start with injured players. Simple and autosub.

                                      This game cannot get easier than that.

                                      I should start doing this next season considering I have not utilised my bench much this season. How much fun.

                                      'Stay calm & get prepared'
                                      I too was mad about the Man C vs Arsenal postponement .. for a moment, then I thought... make sure I'm prepared for more surprises, as no doubt they'll be more...
                                      Some tips for the last 9 weeks of one of the most exciting unpredictable seasons ..
                                      1. Save at least one chip 
                                      There could be a bumper, triple game week in WK38
                                      2. Spread the risk. 
                                      Select nailed on players
                                      Have 15 players who play - no bench fodder - you'll need your bench
                                      Choose from many teams - don't put all your eggs in one basket
                                      Choose captain & vice captain from different teams
                                      3. Be flexible to late news - make transfer(s) as late as possible 
                                      Stay calm & be prepared & you will not only survive, you will prospere!
