Upsets in the FA Cup continue. On Sunday, Spurs were held to a 2-2 draw by Rochdale, who are bottom of League One, one level below the FLC. Rochdale were leading 1-0 at half time. Nobody picked either the HT or the FT result.

On Monday night we had another upset. Wigan Athletic (they're also in League One), beat the FAPL runaway leaders Manchester City 1-0 (it was 0-0 at half time). Nobody picked this upset, but srini701 jagged one of them .. he consulted his crystal ball and picked the half time result! This game was a re-run of the 2013 FA Cup Final, which was won by Wigan Athletic (who were then in the FA Premier League).

Howie72 and Sypher were last round's winner and, in an encore performance, are this round's winners! N-Bomb retains his lead, but his margin out front has been shaved from 4 pts to just one point.

New high: nobody
New low : illiniman14 and LeoDaVinci

Our advance picks for the quarters, semis and final have been decimated (see post above this one). No-one has a complete set of live picks for anything and, even though we're still one round short of the quarters, only three of us have a live pick for the winner!

The draw for Round 6 took place on Monday night and, after the balls were pulled out of the barrel, we ended up with these four match-ups for the quarter-finals:

Leicester City v Chelsea
Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion
Sheff Wed/Swansea City v Rochdale/Tott Hotspur
Wigan Athletic v Southampton

The "big three", Manch United, Chelsea and Spurs have avoided each other and should progress to the semis (which will please dg_dave, Dizart and Sypher). The 6th Round will be played in four weeks : FA Cup - 6th Round - Sat 17 March.

paper_aero scores his first weekly win and illiniman14 his first wooden spoon.

Sypher replaces N-Bomb out front and we're back to where we were back in R2, six rounds ago. No-one else has led this comp.

The two leaders are still 4 pts ahead of the peloton of six, who are now covered by a mere 2 pts (previously 6 pts). With just two rounds left, the two semis and the final, the three medallist should emerge from these eight players. A repeat of last year's finish is unlikely: ozzz2002 went from 2nd last to 1st in the last round with a set of truly outrageous, but astute, picks.

New high: PaulE
New low : illiniman14 (again)

The draw for the semi-finals took place Sunday night after the last quarter-final was played. All four semi-finalist are from the FA Premier League (2nd v 4th and 5th v 18th):

Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur
Chelsea v Southampton

Manchester Utd will be playing in their 29th semi-final, equalling the record set by Arsenal last year. These two teams are well clear of the rest in the FA Cup winners table:

toocool4u scores his first weekly win and wwe84 his first wooden spoon. The other wooden spoon went to George95.

Sypher retains his 2 pt margin back to N-Bomb. With just one round left, no-one else has led this comp.

ElfTwinkle, in 3rd place, has halved the 4 pt deficit to 2 pts and from there it's another 2 pts to a gaggle of 5 players separated by a single point .. ozzz2002, who's one of those five, is the only player with a live pick (Chelsea) for the FA Cup Final! The rest of us will be picking up crumbs with our advance picks.

The three medallist should emerge from these eight players. The rest of us are too far behind to finish on the podium. A repeat of last year's finish is unlikely: ozzz2002 went from 2nd last to 1st in the last round with a set of astute but truly outrageous picks. As he's the only one who can collect 5 pts with his advance pick, can he retain his title?

New high: paper_aero, Dizart

Manchester United and Chelsea will be contesting the 2018 FA Cup Final. Manch Utd will be playing in their 20th FA Cup Final, equalling the record set by Arsenal last year. If they win their win-loss record will be identical to that of Arsenal. These two teams are well clear of the rest in the FA Cup winners table:

MOST FA CUP WINS - TOP TEN
                  SF   F   W
Arsenal 29 20 13
Manchester United 29 20 12

West Brom Albion 20 10 5

F   = finals played
W  = FA Cup wins

Spurs have lost 12 of their 21 semi-final appearances and, of those twelve, eight of them are consecutive over the last three decades. They last played in an FA Cup Final in 1991, when they beat Forest 2-1 aet. They played in the following semi-finals and lost all of them: 1993, 1995, 1999, 2001, 2010, 2012, 2017 and 2018.

N-Bomb and ozzz2002 scored the final weekly wins in this comp and the first three spots from the previous round are no more.

N-Bomb took the gold medal by pushing Sypher back into 2nd place and ozzz2002 pushed ElfTwinkle off the podium to take bronze.

There was just the one bonus point .. ozzz2002 was the only player to hit pay dirt with his or her advance pick! Those of us who picked draw-draw-no goals were very close .. Chelsea won the game with a penalty.

In a curious finish to the season, ozzz2002 did not pick Chelsea with his three picks. If he had stuck with his advance pick he would've scored another 6 pts with his three picks; and pushed everyone aside and won this!

Four of us finished on a wing and a prayer: we all scored zilch, nada, zero, nil, nothing and a big fat 0/16 .. ozzz2002 finished on a high and three of us finished on a low:

New high: ozzz2002

In what was a dreary Cup Final, Manchester United failed to equal Arsenal's all-time record of 13 FA Cup wins. They finished runners-up in the League and runners-up in the FA Cup, which is the 11th time this feat has been achieved since 1889 (see list bottom right).

srini701 is the only player to win back-to-back titles (2009 & 2010) and the only one to win this three times (he won it again in 2015).

This year's FA Cup comp was the 16th edition. The defending title holder was ozzz2002 (who came within a whisker of being the 2nd person to win back-to-back titles). Howie72 was last year's silver medallist and N-Bomb collected the bronze medal.
