N-Bomb takes the weekly win with a mammoth 14/16 and extends his lead out front to 4 pts with just two rounds left, the semis and the final. He picked the card the lot except for the two surprise quarter-finalist, which were picked by no-one: Lincoln City and Millwall.

Sypher catches Dizart to make it a dead-heat for 2nd, with George95 a further 3 pts in arrears .. and form there it's another 3 pts to a group of eight players, who are separated by another 3 pts.

New high: Sypher
New low : nobody

There were no upsets in the 4 quarter-finals. All games were played out according to the script and there were bonus points galore .. illiniman14 collected his first bonus point, which filled the last blank in that column; and one of the three blanks alongside his name. George95 and wwe84 remain the only ones with a digit in each column.

The semi-final draw was made Monday night (three of the four are from London):

Arsenal v Manchester City
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur

It'll be Arsenal's 29th appearance in the semis, which is a new record. If they get to the final and win, they will establish two further records: most appearances in the final and most wins:

ElfTwinkle is the only player to choose the four semi-finalists with her four advance picks. Three players have chosen Chelsea and Spurs as their two finalisst, and one player has chosen Arsenal and Manch City. These three players are guaranteed on correct advance pick but can't score two correct (as they play each other in the semis).

Seven players have chosen Chelsea to beat Manch City in the final .. one of those seven is N-Bomb, which means the other six will need a miracle to catch him (see post above this one for complete list of advance picks for the semis and final).

ElfTwinkle is this round's winner with a humungous 14/16, which equals the effort of N-Bomb in the previous round. She picked the card except for the FT result Chelsea v Spurs (she collected a spoon in the previous round)(she collected a spoon in the previous round). She was the only player to pick all four semi-finalists with her advance picks. She flies up the table from 14th to 7th and cuts the 13 point deficit behind a podium finish down to 5 pts. It was her first weekly win of the season.

Last round's winner, N-Bomb, collects a wooden spoon but retains the lead. His margin is cut from 4 points to just 1 pt and we now have the first five separated by a mere 2 pts .. down from a mammoth 10 point spread in the last round.

First and second, N-Bomb and Howie72, have a live pick for the winner with their advance pick (see post above this one). Sypher (3rd), Dizart (4th) and illiniman14 (5th) are running dead with no live pick .

New high: Howie72, ElfTwinkle and dg_dave.
New low : George95, ozzz2002, PaulE & LeoDaVinci.

Arsenal came from 0-1 down to beat Manchester City in extra time. They will be playing in their 20th FA Cup Final next month, and all-time record (one more than Manchester United). Should they beat Chelsea in the all-London final it will be their 13th victory and another all-time record (and, again, it will be one more than Manchester United).

The final round has three regular picks (6 pts), two advance picks for the finalists (4 pts) and one advance pick for the winner (6 pts).

Sypher in 3rd place is running dead (he will receive 2 pts as Spurs, his pick, lost their semi), which means those behind him who have Chelsea as their advance pick (equals 6 pts) will catch up by 4 pts if Chelsea win the FA Cup.

No-one will score 4 points for the two finalists as no-one correctly picked both. All of us got one correct except for Dizart and srini701.

At the end of the previous round ozzz2002 was running equal second last (putting aside the two non-active players at the rear of the field), some 11 pts behind the leader, N-Bomb.

In what is surely the most outrageous come-back in the last round of any FT tipping comp over the last 17 yrs, ozzz2002 scored 12/16 and N-Bomb scored 5/16, which wasn't enough to overtake N-Bomb .. but five bonus points saw ozzz2002 win this by one solitary single point! He won this by a nose with a sustained rails run down the home straight, all the way to the finish post. This was his one and only weekly win!

Howie72 took the silver off N-Bomb on a weekly win vs. spoon countback of +2 to +1.

PaulE, paper_aero, iliniman14 and Sypher finished the season without a weekly win and without a spoon. Four players finished on a personal high for the season: ozzz2002, ElfTwinkle, dg_dave and wwe84 .. George95 finished on a new personal low.

Chelsea went 1-0 down in the 4th minute to a goal by Sanchez and equalised in the 76th with 10 men, after Moses was was shown a red card in the 68th minute for diving (2nd yellow). Ramsay scored the winner three minutes later.

Chelsea's loss was the 8th time the league champions had lost the FA Cup Final since 1888, when the Football League was formed.

Had Chelsea won it would've been their second double, and the 12th ever.

The win by Arsenal came in their 20th cup final appearance (which is a new record). It was their 13th win (also a new record).

ozzz2002 is a first-time winner of this comp .. 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 competition was the 15th edition. The defending title holder was N-Bomb (who came within a whisker of being the 2nd person to win back-to-back titles). Sypher was last year's silver medallist and paper_aero collected the bronze medal.
