FA Cup

2015

The FA Cup, which started in 1872, is the world's oldest football knock-out competition .. season 2015 is the 134th edition. The preliminary qualifying rounds started in mid-August. The Football Association has accepted entries from 736 teams for this season's FA Cup, comprising 644 non-league teams plus the 92 league teams. The league teams are the 44 teams in the FAPL (20) and
FLC (24), and the 48 teams in League One and League Two (24 each).
  • the 4th and last qualifying round for the 644 non-league teams
    will be played on Saturday 25th October.
  • the 32 survivors from the qualifiers join the 48 teams in L1 and
    L2 in the First Round (equals 80 teams).
  • the 20 survivors from the Second Round will join the FAPL and
    FLC teams in the Third Round (equals 64 teams).
  • from there it's a straight knock-out through to the final in May.
This year's FA Cup tipping comp will run for almost 8 months over 10 rounds from Saturday 8th November 2014 until Saturday 30th May 2015 (FA Cup First Round through to the FA Cup Final). Although there are 10 rounds in the tipping comp we only lodge picks on 8 occasions:
  • the First Round of 40 games will be split into two rounds
    of 16 games each by ignoring 8 games.
  • the Second Round has 20 games .. 4 games are ignored.
  • the Third Round of 32 games is be split into two rounds
    of 16 games each.
  • that's 5 tipping rounds which, with the remaining 5 rounds
    of the FA Cup, gives us 10 tipping rounds.
  • we also have advance picks so that each round is always
    worth 16 pts.

Gone are the good old days where the FA Cup Final was played on the first or second Saturday in May (and the regular season games finished the week before). It'll be almost June when this year's final is played, on 30th May 2015! At least the Third Round is set in concrete, it's always the first Saturday in January. The dates for each round in this year's comp are as follows:
    1st Round : Saturday 8 November 2014
    2nd Round : Saturday 6 December 2014
    3rd Round : Saturday 3 January 2015
    4th Round : Saturday 24 January 2015
    5th Round : Saturday 14 February 2015
    6th Round : Saturday 7 March 2015 quarters
    7th Round : Saturday 18 April 2015 semi-finals
    8th Round : Saturday 30 May 2015 FA Cup Final
The rules for the FA Cup tipping comp are simple (they're the same as last year):
    points

    default


    upsets

    perfect picks

    other bonus pts


    dead-heats
    one point for each correct pick .. home win, draw, away win
    in other words, it's always at 90 minutes.
    if you forget to pick, the away teams are all yours (ineligible for bonus pts);
    but if the wooden spoon score is higher, default is the ws score; default for
    the semi-finals, the final and advance picks is the wooden spoon score.
    you score a bonus point if you pick a game solo .. or one of two players if we
    have 10+ runners; or one of three if 18 or more runners.
    one bonus point for 11+/16;
    14/16 or higher receives a further bonus point (plus a knighthood from HM).
    no one picks win, whoever picks a draw;
    no one picks draw, whoever picks the upset win;
    if you pick all home teams (or all bar one), ineligible for bonus pts.
    weekly wins vs. wooden spoon countback determine podium finishes;
    if they're identical, bonus pts will be used.

This year's comp is the 13th edition of the FA Cup tipping comp. Last season's comp was won by KrivoyRog.

Last year's FA Cup comp had a field of 17 runners. This year we had 16 runners line-up at the barriers to participate .. the no show was KrivoyRog, the defending titleholder. There are no rookies this year.

The first round of this year's comp had just two games picked by everyone, for a 50/50 split .. one was 100% wrong and all of us got one 100% right.

Seven players picked 10+/16 for a bonus point, and one of them is our are early season leader, dg_dave. With two solo picks as well, he's skipped away to a 3 point margin. The next six players are separated by one point.

Round 1b will be completed when the two postponed games are played: Mansfield Town v Concord Rangers and Weston Super Mare v Doncaster Rovers. The FA has not selected a date for these two games, as yet.

If it is one of three, wouldn't I have three solo points as well as a 12+?

With rescheduling for tv rights and two postponed games, this round has finally ended. It dragged on across 11 days from Sat 8th to Tue 18th Nov.

dg_dave retains 1st spot despite collecting a wooden spoon (and with that effort is the first to fill-in the last three columns in the standings) .. ozzz2002 scores a weekly win and jumps up into a share of the lead. LeoDaVinci scored the other weekly win .. he flew up the table from 4th last and landed on a podium position.

A single point covers the first six players .. and a mere three pts covers the first ten (which is over half the field).

Unlike dg_dave, the other wooden spooners all tumbled down the table. Dizart collected back-to-back spoons.

The next round will be played over the 1st weekend next month. The draw is not ready for tippng as yet, as there are still three outstanding replays from the First Round. It should be finalised later this week when two of those three are played.

Note - to avoid having a round drag on and on and on for almost afortnight, we will lodge picks for all games played in the next round, but will end up scoring the first 16 played. Details will be posted in the tipping thread : FA Cup - 2nd Round - Sat 6 Dec.

srini701 is continuing to run-away with this. He's now 6 points in front of second place. The next 6 pts cover 13 players, which is the entire field except for the two tail-enders.

Howie72 almost picked the card with 13/16. He three he missed were the huge upset loss at home by QPR, Southampton held to a draw at home by Ipswich, and the win by Sunderland. He flew up the table from 14th to 7th (aka third last to mid-table). He also scored two bonus pts for the near miss. It was his first win for the season.

Everyone picked 10+/16 for a bonus point except for ozzz2002 and BxBarracuda, who collected his first wooden spoon. There are now no blanks in the bp column; they have disappeared.

New personal high: Howie72.
New personal low: BxBarracuda.

The loss at home by QPR, to a team from League One, was only the 14th time in the 143-year history of the FA Cup that a team in the top tier of English football lost at home to a team from either of the bottom two divisions of The Football League (see below). Sheffield United have now achieved this feat twice; and in consecutive years. QPR now have the unwanted distinction of being on that list twice .. the first was three years ago when they lost at home to MK Dons.




The FA Cup started in 1872 and The Football League was formed in 1888.

    * the 6th Round is the quarter-finals
No team from the top tier of English football lost at home to a non-league team until
1957. This has now occurred four times.

The win by Sheffield United at Loftus Road was the 10th ever victory by a team from
the third or fourth division at the home of a team in the top division (two of those ten
wins were by a team in the fourth division).

    Division One left the Football League en masse to form the FAPL
    the FLC was confusingly 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 below the Football League.

    • 16 of 16 players lodged advance picks.

    • no-one has a complete set of advance picks for the 8 quarter-finalists.

    • ditto the semis, no-one has a complete set of four.

    • four games from the 5th Round remain, being games which require
      a replay. One replay will eliminate one more advance pick (Sunderland
      v Fulham), and two of the other three may or may not: Cambridge Utd

      now dead. Some players have lost five of their eight quarter-finalists.

Four of the top six in the FA Premier League are out, one was held to a draw (Manchester Utd), and just one of them won (Arsenal). The four that are out all lost at home: Chelsea, Manchester City, Southampton and Tottenham Hotpsur. When was the last time all four failed to make the 5th Round? It was 40 years ago, in 1975.

dg_dave is this round's winner with 8/16. He joins srini701 at the top of the pile.. srini701's lead of 6 points evaporated in a round of upsets.

six of us collected a wooden spoon with picks of 4/16 .. it was a first spoon for all of them except wwe84. We now have just three players without a spoon: LeoDaVinci, N-Bomb and Fussbudget.

The first two have put 6 pts between themselves and the rest of the field. The next 6 pts cover 13 players!
    New personal high: Howie72 (again) and FussBudget.
    New personal low: ozzz2002.
Chelsea lost at home to a team from the third division ..it was the 15th time in the 143 year history of the FA Cup that a team from the top division of English football lost to a team in the third tier, or lower (see list at bottom of this post). Seven of those 15 happened in the last five years.

A summary of our advance picks for the semis and quarters is in the post above this one. It is not a pretty sight, or a good read.




The FA Cup started in 1872 and The Football League was formed in 1888.

    * the 6th Round is the quarter-finals
No team from the top tier of English football lost at home to a non-league team until 1957. This
has now occurred four times.

The outrageous win by Bradford City at Stamford Bridge was the 11th ever victory by a team
from the third or fourth division at the home of a team in the top division (two of those eleven
wins were by a team in the fourth division). Curiously, seven of those 15 have come in the last
five years!

    Division One left the Football League en masse to form the FAPL
    the FLC was confusingly 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 below the Football League.

4 points is a good score!

At the end of Saturday I had 1 from 12 completed matches.
