FA Cup Upsets Game 2016-17
FA Cup Upsets Game 2016-17

OK, here goes for an easy but fun game. Choose your special teams and sit back and enjoy …

Name any FIVE teams active from the FA Cup First Round that you will go furthest in the competition. Who might be potentially giantkillers?! Or have the luck of the draw? For each team you select you receive five points for every round successfully passed. For example, if you chose Coventry and they lost in the third round, you’d have ten points.

However, if you choose one or more NON-LEAGUE teams your points will be doubled for every round passed, so Sutton United losing in that same third round as previous example Coventry would see you with twenty points. But … of course upsets are more difficult for non-league teams! And … yet again … the draw has been quite unusual this year - lots of non-league teams play against each other so we’re guaranteed at least 9 of them in Round 2.
On the other hand, if you look at the top of League Division 1 - well, these teams should in theory be the strongest. It’s over to you to decide!

Only obvious rule is that you can’t have exactly the same 5 teams as anyone else on your forum!

Get your selections back BEFORE kick-off of the first matches scheduled - so that’s Friday (4th November) before the 7.45 kick-offs … no late selections please, to keep it fair from everyone.



These are the matches in Round One, non-league teams in red, so you’ve got it very easy to decide …

My selection:

Dag & Red
Plymouth
Peterborough
Walsall
Sheff Utd


Just like that - just give your 5 hopefully successful teams ...

Went a bit too fast in that list above ...
Despite Yeovil being in red you can't count them as a non-league team, and Dover getting promoted - well I'm sure you missed that one happening!!

Good show.

Get them in now, because the way the game is orientated it is impossible for anyone to enter in Round Two. The more the better obviously!!!
