11. NOT THE CLOSE ONE

10 Nov:

The last game is played out in LA and we have our next round done and dusted.
With the LA game over, the Cup match is also over, and we must add that we named a fixture for tipping this week that is not due to be played for 2 weeks... entirely the FMICL Commissioners fault.

Luckily it was the final game of the Cup tie, and results previous meant it did not need to apply to determine the outcome.

And the Cup outcome is...

So this week we have a 1-1 draw after the first 5 games, and another 1-1 tie after the first 3 penalties, with the St Etienne - Monaco draw finally sealing the result for The Guru.

The Guru is allocated a spot for the Round of 16, while Laurence is out of the Cup.


Back over to regular League action, and here is the weekends results.

Making the head-to-head results:

@NaylorMichael1-3@DemP_9
@Sjhross4-3@TheMattBungard
@Andrewm_812-3@BenCuzzupe
@SgtButane3-2@Hcdc93

Of the featured matches
- Laurence cops another 'L' while Amul scores his third win in a row.
- Henry suffers his first loss against the Sarge and in doing so slips down the table, while the Sarge heads to the top.

And in the Belt Maths, we see the belt again changing hands after a 4 week stint with one player. AndrewM and MichaelN both holding it for 4 weeks.
@Andrewm_812-3@BenCuzzupe

So now Ben has the belt to defend in two weeks time (next week is another week off for internationals etc).


There is another different leader this week, with the return of the Sarge to top position, but only by 'F' (total points scored).

The top 8 from last week all retain top 8 positions, though re-shuffled. 
One time cellar dweller Amul now knocking on the door of the 8.
Former 'Player of September' MattB also struggling well down the table. 

With Dems draw last week, and Henry's loss this week, the only 0 in the table belongs to Laurence, who is now 4 points adrift at the foot of the table.

Again, for Cup action...
You have 10 games (1 to 5 and A to E) to tip. Games 1 to 5 are the main game... score more here and you win.
Games A to C are in play if the first 5 games result in a draw. Best score from these three is the winner.
If you are still tied after that, then the best from D wins.
And if that is tied, then the best from E wins.
If there is still a tie after all of that, we replay the Cup tie another week.




Good luck to all players this week.
