The FA Cup is the world's oldest football knock-out competition (started in 1872). The 2021 comp will be the 140th edition. The preliminary qualifying rounds started in September (rather than the usual mid-August). To ease fixture congestion there are no replays for the 2021 FA Cup. The Football Association has accepted entries from 737 teams for this season's FA Cup, comprising 645 non-league teams plus the 92 league teams. The all-time record field is 763 teams, which was set in 2012. The 92 league teams are the 44 in the FAPL (20) and FLC (24), plus the 48 teams in League One and League Two (24 each).
  • the 4th and last qualifying round for the 645 non-league teams
    was played last weekend Saturday 25th October.
  • the 32 survivors from the qualifiers progress to the First Round
    where they join the 48 teams in L1 and L2 (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 tipping comp will run for a bit over 6½ months over 10 rounds from Saturday 7th Nov 2020 until Saturday 15th May 2021 (First Round through to the FA Cup Final). Although there are 10 rounds in the tipping comp, we only lodge picks on 8 occasions, as follows:
  • 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, gives us 10 tipping rounds.
  • we also have advance picks thrown in so that all 10 rounds are worth 16 pts each.

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; penalty-shootout lotteries are ignored.
    if you forget to pick, you will receive the wooden spoon score (this includes
    advance picks).
    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 we have 18 or more runners.
    one bonus point for 10+/16;
    13/16 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.
    weekly wins vs. wooden spoon countback determine podium finishes; if they
    are identical, bonus pts will be used.

This year's comp is the 19th edition of the FA Cup tipping comp. Last season's comp was won by ozzz2002. With his win in 2019, N-Bomb became the second player to win this comp three times ... srini701 was the first to win this three times (2015). Between them, ozzz2002 and N-Bomb have won the last five comps from 2016 to 2020!

Have a go, although the odds of this tournament actually being completed are another matter.

Two years ago the FA Cup comp had a field of 14 runners. Last year we again had 14 runners (we lost ElfTwinkle but we gained Llynfi). This year we lost PaulE, which gives us 13 runners who returned for another dose.

A truckload of upsets saw 4 of 16 games picked by no-one (or one or two). Zero games were picked by everyone. Only three games reached double digits for correct picks.

Cambridge United (L2) lost at home to Shrewsbury Town (L1). N-Bomb jagged this upset and scored a bonus pt. The second upset was Boreham Wood (NL) holding Southend Utd (L2) to a draw .. wwe84 picked this. The third upset was the drawn game Banbury United (SL) v Canvey Island (IL), picked by Dizart and dg_dave.

As was the case last year in Round 1, paper_aero starts as the R1 winner; ditto ozzz2002, who started last year's comp with a wooden spoon. It's a four-way tie out front as paper_aero and his 50% strike rate 8/16 is joined by three payers who scored 7/16 plus a bonus point. Behind them we have a two-way tie, 1 pt in arrears, and another four-way tie, two points in arrears.

Llynfi has been leader since day dot .. and has increased his lead each round. His margin out front is now out to 4 pts. The remainder of the field (except for the tail ender) are covered by the next 4 pts!

Every round so far has seen 8/16 as the winner aka, no-one has reached double digits in three rounds of tipping.

Picks for 6 of the 16 games were unanimous and, in accordance with the law of averages, it came out as an even 50/50 split: we hit pay dirt with three and struck out with the other three.

New high: srini701, dg_dave
New low : paper_aero, Dizart, Sypher, George95

The next round is on Saturday 9th January 2021. If the FA stick to what they've done in previous rounds, there will probably be a game or two b/f to Friday night.

A 4pt margin out front wasn't enough. Llynfi collects the wooden spoon and surrenders the lead to N-Bomb, who's the first player, since day dot, to reach double digits with correct picks. N-Bomb converted a 4 pt deficit into a 2 pt lead.

Picks for 4 of the 16 games were unanimous and, in accordance with the law of averages, it was once again an even 50/50 split: we hit pay dirt with two and struck out with the other two. Last week we had six unanimous and hit pay dirt with three.

New high: ---
New low : paper_aero (again), Llynfi

Next update: Round 3b wil be completed on Monday night local time. Results will be posted on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Llynfi is this week's winner with some outrageous picks, which all bore fruit .. two of them were solo picks! He scores 13/16 and jumps back into the lead by a margin of 6 pts.

Two weeks ago he was leading by 4 pts, last week he dropped to second some 2 points in arrears; and this week he returns to the lead with a 6 pt margin. Is that how we spell fluctuations ..

Picks for 5 of the 16 games were unanimous and this week we ignored the law of averages .. we hit pay dirt with the lot!

New high: ---
New low : Sypher

The next round is on Saturday week. The draw was announced last night: FA Cup - 4th Round - Sat 23 Jan.

We're at the half-way mark .. 5 of 10 tipping rounds have been completed (80 pts). The next five rounds are also worth 80 pts (5 x 16 each).

In the last round, picks for 5 of the 16 games were unanimous and we hit pay dirt with the lot. In this round we had unanimous picks for 6 of the 16 games and, once gain, we hit pay dirt with the lot!

This gave us a average strike rate of 71.9% and three winners with 13/16 correct picks: dg_dave, Dizart and ozzz2002.

Each winner received two bonus pts, one for scoring 10+/16 and another for a perfect pick/ near miss at 13+/16. Dizart collected another two bonus points for solo picks, enough to slingshot him into equal 3rd place.

New high: Howie72
New low : N-Bomb, paper_aero, Sypher

The next round is mid-week in a fortnight's time : FA Cup - 5th Round - Tue 9 Feb.

Llynfi scores 5/16 and collects the wooden spoon .. and his reign at the top of the pile is over .. paper_aero, last round's wooden spooner, is this round's winner with 13/16.

This, together with *six* bonus pts, gave a 13 pt turnaround .. a 9 pt deficit behind Llynfi turned into a 4 pt margin. Howie72 was next best with 9/16 .. he moves up into 2nd place, which pushes Llynfi down to 3rd.

LeoDaVinci collected his first bonus pts for the season, which fills the last blank in that column.

New low : Llynfi, N-Bomb (again), dg_dave, gtho4

paper_aero retains his one point lead out front over Howie72. Dizart replaces Llynfi in 3rd place, who drops to 4th place. A mere 4 points cover these four players. From there we have a gap of 3 pts to the peloton (six players). There's a huge gap of 8 pts between the peloton and the three at the rear of the field.

We have two rounds left, the semis and final, and we're at the finish post. There are 32 pts on offer in these two rounds.

New high: --
New low : Llynfi (again), N-Bomb (again), gtho4 (again)

The next round, R7 semi-finals, will take place in four weeks:
FA Cup - 7th Round - Sat 17 Apr. Four balls were drawn out of a barrel at FA headquarters to give these two match-ups:

Chelsea v Manchester City
Leicester City v Southampton

It's been 39 years since Leicester City made it through to the FA Cup semis. They lost their 1982 semi-final 2-0 to Spurs, who went on to beat QPR 1-0 in a replay of the FA Cup Final (which finished 1-1 aet).

Dizart replaces paper_aero out front, which is were he was way back in Round 1. He's the 3rd different leader in 4 rounds .. and, curiously, every leader to date is one of the four who were joint leaders at the end of Round 1.

The 2nd last round of this comp was almost a perfect rendition of musical chairs .. only two players kept their spot from the previous round.

The final round will see 6 pts from picks, 4 pts for advance picks x2 finalists, and 6 pts for advance pick of the winner. All of our advance picks are here. No-one has a live pick for the winner!

Howie72 wins the gold medal with his 1st weekly win, after two back-to-back wooden spoons. He jumps from 3rd to 1st and replaces Dizart out front (he collects the silver medal), which pushes paper_aero into 3rd place and bronze.

Llynfi and N-Bomb dead-heated for 4th, a mere point behind paper_aero.

This is the first time Howie72 has won the FA Cup competition, and he won it with a -ve countback.

Five years ago Leicester City won their first ever Premier League title. Today they won their first-ever FA Cup, at the 5th attempt. Their last appearance in the final was 52 years ago. They held the record for the most final appearances without a win (four): 1949, 1961, 1963 and 1969.

The defending titleholder was ozzz2002. Dizart won silver last year and paper_aero the bronze .. which is where they finished this year!
