With the Preliminary draw done and dusted the First round proper draw was made earlier tonight.

Some interesting ties to whet the appetite with the new cup favourites the Dogbots given a favourable tie against BEGD FC while the Gall dynasty should be more than happy with their ties against United by fear and Wii Unfit,

BeerandBoobs Fantasy Cup 2013 Prelim Round Results

The double gameweek is finally over and with the final bonus pts being added last night we saw the scores of the preliminary cup fixtures finalised also.

A few teams further down the league may at this stage have taken the decision to make the cup their primary goal for the season having found themselves effectively out of the running for the play offs.

One of the first to make this intention public was Killer Whippet Dogbots manager Pete Lucas (@whippetdogbots). The Dogbots deployed their wildcard last week and set sail for cup glory so there was a palpable sigh of relief from Lucas when the final game last night saw them run out clear winners over the always difficult Real SociableDad. At this stage there has been no word yet from Coll as to his thoughts on the defeat.

As the only club so far to declare the cup as their main priority is it too early to install them as favourites, expecting other teams to be distracted by league games? We think so although Lucas has finally figured out the transfer procedure and results have improved of late his luck has admittedly been abysmal and will need to turn dramatically if they are to be seriously considered at this early stage.

Full results were as follows.

Phatasphuck FC 51 v 72 Garbonzo FC
BareAssAlona 49 v 75 Coops Troops
Fortuna Brusselsprout 45 v 70 United by Fear
Angry Dragons 69 v 72 BEGD FC
Dyslexic Untied 61 v 59 AC Corona
Real SociableDad 55 v 86 Killer Whippet Dogbots

There were also wins for Garbonzo FC, Coops Troops, United by Fear, BEGD FC and to relief of some but the consternation of most Dyslexic Untied.

Of the losers special mention should be made of BareAssAlona whose season has simply imploded in the last few weeks after leading the league for weeks they are now heading for the bottom half of the table and will not make the first round proper of the cup. The Phatties inconsistent form came back to haunt them and Real and the Dragons will of course claim that the cup has never been a priority as they always do as soon as they lose.

With no replays to sort out this weekend and the next round of the cup due to take place over gameweek 25, we look forward to the draw for the next round which will take place on Sunday 27th January, as ever live on Twitter at 7pm.

BeerandBoobs 2013 Fantasy Cup Preliminary Draw

Last weekend saw the draw for the preliminary draw of the 2013 BeerandBoobs Fantasy Cup.

The shock of the draw was that Spiros and his Dwarfs were NOT drawn out after accusing the independent and totally impartial draw machine of being biased towards Untied due to their managers association with the league. Really Spiros, you should learn to keep your petty accusations to yourself.

As ever the draw did throw out some big sides with the previously mentioned Untied, the Dragons and Real SociableDad all having to make an early appearance in order to progress.

The draw in full was as follows.

Two of the league rookie teams also get their first taste of cup football with Garbonzo FC and Killer Whippet Dogbots drawn in the first and final round of the draw respectively and both will have to overcome one of the founding members of the competition in the Phatties and Real.

Once again luck shined on last years winners Italian Job as they can can concentrate on their league game as can league leaders Steaua who seem to be enjoying themselves once again at the top of the table.

The games will be played over gameweek 23 (next weekend)

Good Luck all
