This round was a cutlery convention .. there were eight wooden spoons! Howie72 won the round with 8/16 and dg_dave & paper-aero were next with 7/16 .. the rest of us (all sixteen of us) scored 6/16 or 5/16.

One game was a 100% pick by everyone and two games were picked by no-one .. dg_dave scored his first bonus point leaving srini701 as the lone ranger without a bonus.

paper_aero takes over the lead as toocool4u scored default .. he failed to make it to the starting gate.

We've broken apart into three distinct groups .. the first six, a pack of eight in the middle and seven at the rear. The first six are separated by a mere 3 points and 3 pts also covers the seven at the rear of the field. The pack of eight in the middle are separated by just 2 pts.

It's the status quo at the top of the table .. the two out front both scored 10/16, one below the weekly win. They've now put a small gap between themselves and the rest of the field.

illiniman14 and trev1 are this round's winners with 11/16. Last week trev1 was mid-table just 6 points off the bottom. He's now in 5th place and 15 pts off the bottom .. ditto George95!

illiniman14 replaces Howie72 in 3rd place. He was last week's wooden spooner .. he's the first to score one of each.

ozzz2002 collects his 3rd wooden spoon, which matches the three in wwe84's kitchen. He's now dropped back to the rear of the field, 7 pts adrift of 2nd last.

srini701 scores his first bonus point, which completes that column in the table.

That completes the first half of the season .. 80 picks lodged and 80 picks to go .. aka as 5 rounds down and 5 to go.

The FA Cup started in 1872 and The Football League was formed in 1888. No team
from the top tier of English football lost at home to a non-league team until 1957.
    FA Cup losses at home by teams in the top division
    to a team in the third division, or lower

    (1) 1954 R4 1-2 Arsenal v Norwich City Div 1 v Div 3S
    (2) 1957 R3 0-1 Wolv Wanderers v Bournemouth Div 1 v Div 3S
    (3) 1975 R3 0-1 Burnley v Wimbledon Div 1 v non-league

    (11) 2012 R4 2-4 Q P R v Milton Keynes Dons FAPL v L1
    (12) 2012 R4 0-1 Norwich City v Luton Town FAPL v non-league

    The game listed as #9 is for LeoDaVinci to admire.
    * the 6th Round is the quarter-finals
The win by Luton Town at Carrow Road, the home of Norwich City, was the 4th ever
victory by a non-league team at the home ground of a team in the top division. The
previous three victories were in the Third Round .. this win was in the Fourth Round.

The win by Milton Keynes Dons at Loftus Road, the home of QPR, was the 8th ever
victory by a team from the third or fourth division at the home of a team in the top
division (two of those nine wins were by a team in the fourth division).

    Division One left the Football League en masse to form the FAPL
    the FLC was titled Div1 from 1992 to 2003
    labelled Div2 from 1992 to 2003
    labelled Div3 from 1992 to 2003
    The Football League added Division Three (South) and Division Three (North) in 1920 and 1921. The two regional leagues disappeared
    in 1958 when the Fourth Division was formed (from the bottom halves of each regional league). A "non-league" team is a team which
    plays outside the Football League.

Apart from PaulE reclaiming pole position, there was no change in the first four spots .. ditto at the other end, where ozzz2002 kept his spot at the rear with another wooden spoon in his satchel. In between, just two of the other 16 players kept their position from the previous round.

The 13 players running 4th to 16th are now separated by just 5 pts .. down from 7 pts in the previous round, and 8 pts in the round before that. This is unusual, as we usually drift apart as the season progresses.

There were a truckload of upsets. Two of the 16 games in the Fourth Round were picked by no-one, three were solo picks, and another two were picked by just 2 or 3 players. Norwich City lost at home to a non-league team! This is the 4th time in the history of the FA Cup that a team in the top division lost at home to a non-league team. This didn't bother wwe84, who had the hide to pick this humungous upset.

QPR lost at home to MK Dons, a League One team. This is the 8th time that a team in the top division has lost at home to a team in the third division.
No-one picked this upset, but paper-aero scored a bonus point for picking a draw!

A complete list of every home loss (all 12 of them) by a first division team to a team from the third or fourth division, or a non-league team, is in the post above this.

In another upset Liverpool also lost to a League One team (aka the third division) .. ozzz2002 had the hide to pick a win by Oldham Athletic! That's three FAPL teams knocked-out of the FA Cup. Two more were knocked out by FLC teams (aka the second division) - Aston Villa lost away to Millwall, and Spurs lost away to The Mighty Whites. That brings the total to five!

Chelsea were nearly the sixth .. they were behind 2-1 away to Brentford from League One but equalised in the 83rd to earn a replay.

A complete list of our advance picks for the semi-fianls and quarters is in the post above this. With those five upsets, no-one has a complete set of eight live picks for the quarters, and only six players have a complete set of four live picks for the semis.

Chelsea beat Midlesbrough overnight to finally bring to an end the 4th Round of the FA Cup. Everton beat Oldham Athletic the night before, to finalise the eight teams which progress to the quarter-finals.

There's no change at the top, the first three retain their positions from the 3rd Round .. from 4th through to 16th only one person in those 13 slots retained their position - LeoDaVinci in 12th place.

The first two have opened a mini-break of 3 pts on the rest us. The next 13 runners are separated by 7 pts (up from 5 pts).

At the other end, ozzz2002 kept his spot at the rear but is now a mere 2 pts behind FussBudget, who collected this round's wooden spoon.

There were just two upsets of note in this round .. wwe84 picked Arsenal to lose at home to Blackburn Rovers, and paper_aero picked Oldham Athletic, from the third tier, to hold Everton to a draw.

A complete list of our advance picks for the semi-finals and quarters, and then the two finalists and the winner, are in the the post above this. No-one has a complete set of eight live picks for the quarters, only players has a complete set of four live picks for the semis, only eight players have two live semi-finalists, and all of us bar one have a live pick for the winner.

The next round is nine days away on Saturday week (the quarters) : FA Cup - 6th Round - Sat 9 March : half the points in the next round will be the eight advance picks for the quarter-finalists.

  • five players failed to lodge advance picks for finalists x2 and the winner. They will recieve default, which will be zero for the two finalists and 1 pt for the winner (courtesy of KrivoyRog and wwe84).
  • live picks will dwindle even further when Manchester United travel to Chelsea for their replay .. if the unthinakbale happens and Chelsea win the replay, most of us are cactus .. a mere 7 of 32 picks for the two finalists will be live, and FussBudget will be the lone ranger .. the one and only remaining live pick for the winner! If it comes off he'll receive a bonus point for a solo pick!

We have a dead-heat out front .. the two leaders are this week's winners. They extend their lead over the rest of us to 5 points! Behind them we have a triple dead-heat for 3rd place .. Sypher follows 3 pts in arrears. Although the next 10 players (that's half the field) are separated by just 3 points, the leader of that pack of ten is 10 pts behind the leaders which, with just two rounds left, probably means the winner of this comp must surely come from the first six (aka Sypher and up).

Wigan Athletic beat Everton away to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the first time in their 81 year history. Their previous best was in 1987 when they reached the quarter-finals for the first and, until this year, only time. They were a member of the Third Division at that time and lost their quarter final 0-2 at home to Leeds United (who were at that time in the Second Divsion). Leeds lost their semi 3-2 aet (2-2) to Coventry City, who went on to beat Tottenham Hostpur in an All-First-Division final 3-2 aet (2-2) for their first and only FA Cup win. COYS. see also this quiz question in 1970 on the Monty Python Flying Circus tv show [half way down that page]

Wigan Athletic, formed in 1932, did not join the Football League until 1978, when they were voted in to the Fourth Division (and Southport were voted out) .. the current system of automatic promotion (admission) up to the Football League did not commence for another nine years. In 1982 they finished third and were promoted to the Third Division, but were relegated back in 1993 when they finished second-last. This was the club's first and only relegation.

From there they commenced a slow climb from the cellar all the way to the top .. they were promoted back to the third tier of English football in 1997 as Champions; and in 2003 were promoted to the FLC (for the first time ever), again as Champions. They won promotion to the FAPL (yet another first), when they finished 2nd in the FLC in 2005.

With that pedigree, no one expected them to win away at Goodison Park, particularly as their focus this season has been on FAPL survival; avoiding relegation back to the FLC (aka avoiding their second-ever relegation). They scored 3 goals in 3 and a bit mad-minutes of the first half to blow Everton away. BxBarracuda picked it, to earn himself a bonus point, as no-one else was game enough to go out on a limb and pick that sort of upset. The score was 0-3 at full-time, but no-one picked it, not even BxBarracuda! However, three players received a bonus point for picking a draw .. a gimme (BxBarracuda dg_dave and LeoDaVinci).

The FA pulled the bingo balls from the barrel yesterday and this is the draw for the semi-finals (both semis will be played at Wembley):
      Manchester City v. Manchester Utd/Chelsea
      Wigan Athletic v. Millwall/Blackburn Rovers

If Chelsea and Millway both lose, all four semi-finalists will be from the north of England.

On the other hand, if Chelsea win most of us are in a real pickle .. our three advance picks for the two finalists and the winner will be in a real mess .. dg_dave wil be the only person with a live pick for the winner! A complete listing of our advance picks is in the post above this one. There are two rounds left, and there are points for advance picks in both rounds.

illiniman14 is this round's winner with picks of 13/16. He moves into 2nd place 3pts behind the leader, PaulE, who picked 12/16. George95 also picked 12/16 and, lo and behold, these three players just happen to occupy the three podium spots with just one round left. From there it's a 4 pt gap back to dg_dave in 4th and paper_aero in 5th. The three medallists will come from these 5 players.

ozzz2002 earnt himself an honourable mention in the FT HoF Record Book with his wooden spoon score of 0/16.

The final round has another 16 pts but the advance picks now come into play. There are three picks in the FA Cup Final worth six of those 16 pts:
    6 pts from three picks
    4 pts advance pick - two finalists
    6 pts advance pick - winner
There are just three live advance picks for the final (Manchester City) --George95 & dg_dave (third and fifth) have two of them, and N-Bomb who's mid-table has the third. If Manch City lose, these three players will collect 3 pts instead of six. However, illiniman14 and PaulE will collect 1 pt each for their pick the winner. No-one picked Wigan Athletic as a finalist with their advance pick. Four players picked Manch City as a finalist -- the same three players, plus the leader PaulE (that's two pts each).

Add these advance pts (actual earnt and those to come) to the current standings and these five players can work out what they need to win this, or finish on the podium; if Manch City win or Manch City lose. The advance picks are in the post above this one. Good luck to the five of you!

The fairy tale story continues for Wigan Athletic. Earlier this month they made their second-ever quarter-final appearance (their first was 24 years ago in 1987). Their appearance in the semi-finals this weekend was their first and, having beaten Millwall, they will walk out onto the Wembley pitch for their first-ever FA Cup Final appearance on Saturday 5th May. No team has won the FA Cup and been relegated in the same season (Wigan are in the bottom three of the FAPL at the moment). Five teams have been relegated and played in the FA Cup Final over the last 100 years:

1915   Chelsea            [2nd last] lost final 3-0 to Sheffield United.
1926   Manchester City [2nd last] lost final 1-0 to Bolton Wanderers.
1969   Leicester City    [2nd last] lost 1-0 to Manchester City.
1983   Brighton & H Alb [last] drew 2-2 vs. Manch United, lost the replay 4-0.
1997   Middlesbrough   [2nd last] lost final 2-0 to Chelsea.

Two winners of the FA Cup Final have scored six goals. No team has scored 5 goals, and four have been scored many times:
        1890   6-1   Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday
        1903   6-0   Bury v Derby County
Between now and the Cup Final, Wigan Athletic's focus will be FAPL survival. Will they have anything left in the tank when they face Manchester City and their squillions in the Cup Final? We'll find out early next month.

no pick lodged by LeoDaVinci for first goal
advance picks for finalists x2 and the winner were lodged back in Round 5 (see summary below, at the end of this
post). Dizart and paper_aero lodged picks (scored 0/6) but no advance picks = default of 0/10 for those and thus
the wooden spoon goes to Howie72, who lodged picks for everything and also scored zilch.

Apart from the leader and the tail-ender, BxBarracuda and toocool4u were the only players who retained their spot from the previous round. N-Bomb finished the season with a weekly win and climbed up to 6th place, his highest position all season.

Howie72 earnt himself an honourable mention in the FT HoF Record Book .. he collected this round's wooden spoon with a duck.

PaulE retained 1st place and won gold .. George95 replaced illiniman14 in 2nd place to win silver (his highest position all season) .. illiniman14 won bronze by a single point from the fast-finishing dg_dave, who also finished at his highest position all season .. ditto KrivoyRog.
    1st : PaulE
    2nd: George95
    3rd : illiniman14
The fairy tale story continued for Wigan Athletic. This year's FA Cup saw them make their second-ever quarter-final appearance (their first was 24 years ago in 1987), their first-ever appearance in the semis, their first-ever appearance in the final, and their first-ever win! Five clubs have now won the FA Cup with their one and only appearance in the final:
    1911 : Bradford City
    1978 : Ipswich Town
    1987 : Coventry City
    1988 : Wimbledon
    2013 : Wigan Athletic
Wigan Athletic must win both of their remaining games in the FAPL to avoid relegation to the FLC. If they win one of them, their survival will depend on the results of other games. If they win neither they will be the first team to win the FA Cup and be relegated in the same season.

This was the 11th edition of the FA Cup competition (the defending titleholder was superhooppete). Congratulations to the three medallists!

All of us will now have a well-earned rest until early November, when we start this whole process all over again with the 12th edition.

So close! I think that's the best I've done in an FA comp. Next year will be the podium for me! (hopefully)
