    FA Cup Upsets Game 2016-17

    OK, here goes for an easy but fun game. Choose your special teams and sit back and enjoy …

    Name any FIVE teams active from the FA Cup First Round that you will go furthest in the competition. Who might be potentially giantkillers?! Or have the luck of the draw? For each team you select you receive five points for every round successfully passed. For example, if you chose Coventry and they lost in the third round, you’d have ten points.

    However, if you choose one or more NON-LEAGUE teams your points will be doubled for every round passed, so Sutton United losing in that same third round as previous example Coventry would see you with twenty points. But … of course upsets are more difficult for non-league teams! And … yet again … the draw has been quite unusual this year - lots of non-league teams play against each other so we’re guaranteed at least 9 of them in Round 2.
    On the other hand, if you look at the top of League Division 1 - well, these teams should in theory be the strongest. It’s over to you to decide!

    Only obvious rule is that you can’t have exactly the same 5 teams as anyone else on your forum!

    Get your selections back BEFORE kick-off of the first matches scheduled - so that’s Friday (4th November) before the 7.45 kick-offs … no late selections please, to keep it fair from everyone.



    These are the matches in Round One, non-league teams in red, so you’ve got it very easy to decide …

    Went a bit too fast in that list above ...
    Despite Yeovil being in red you can't count them as a non-league team, and Dover getting promoted - well I'm sure you missed that one happening!!

    Good show.

    Get them in now, because the way the game is orientated it is impossible for anyone to enter in Round Two. The more the better obviously!!!

    COMPETITION UPDATE

    Here goes for the completed tables after the Second round of the FA Cup is completed. Remember that for your selected teams you get five points per team for each round successfully passed, which becomes 10 points per round if you’d dared to plump for a non-league team or two …
    So most points mean the best, and you appear in order of current merit.

    If you’d like to check up on who the (so far) successful teams are going to face in the third round, please tune in here:

    If I don’t cross paths with you over Christmas, have a great one!!!

    Here goes for the completed tables after the Third round REPLAYS of the FA Cup have been completed. Remember that for your selected teams you get five points per team for each round successfully passed, which becomes 10 points per round for non-league teams …
    So most points mean the best, and you appear in order of current merit.

    Next update after the FOURTH Round has taken place … final score total means you have used up your five team selection, none of them progress any further. But still points to be picked up for those lucky enough (or astute enough) having made great initial selections!!

    It’s incredible. When I worked out the game at the beginning I tried to blindly calculate, guess more like, how many teams might pass a round or two and how far we might get. I had no idea this was going to prove to be a truly exceptional season, indeed I thought some 50 points would probably win it, yet a number of you are way past there! Bravo for the confidence in these great cup minnows. How far will they get now?? Let’s await the next round …

    FA CUP QUARTER-FINAL DRAW

    Lincoln City will play Sutton or Arsenal in the FA Cup quarter-finals as reward for their stunning fifth-round victory over Burnley. The fifth-tier club became the first non-league team in 103 years to reach the last eight with the biggest shock of the competition so far on Saturday.

    Holders Manchester United play Chelsea, and Millwall, who beat Premier League champions Leicester, play Tottenham. Middlesbrough face Manchester City or Huddersfield, who drew 0-0 on Saturday.

    "It's a win-win," Lincoln manager Danny Cowley said on BT Sport. "We wish Sutton all the best tomorrow, I genuinely hope they can do it."

    Sutton, who are the lowest-ranked team still left in the cup, play at home to the Gunners in a 19:55 GMT kick-off on Monday that will be live on BBC One.

    The replay between Manchester City and Huddersfield is provisionally set for Tuesday, 28 February at Etihad Stadium.

    Full FA Cup quarter-final draw:

    Chelsea v Manchester United
    Middlesbrough v Huddersfield/Manchester City
    Tottenham v Millwall
    Sutton/Arsenal v Lincoln

    FA Cup: Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley's rise in stats as Imps prepare for Arsenal

    Top of the league, an FA Cup quarter-final and a trip to Premier League giants Arsenal - not bad for your first season in full-time management.

    Last season, Danny Cowley was a PE teacher and the part-time manager of Braintree Town.

    This weekend, with his Lincoln City side sitting comfortably at the top of the National League, the 38-year-old continues a remarkable burgeoning managerial career by leading his team out in the last eight of the FA Cup against Arsene Wenger's 12-time winners Arsenal.
