League Cup Prediction Comp (with a twist) 2016/17

Post by Ralfbergs » 11 Aug 2016, 06:44

As you might know, first round has already ended, so we will start with second round. Ashers was the last year's winner - starting the cup with Sunderland and ending up with Man City!

The following text is copied from last year, so the rules are the same:

Just predict who you think will win this season's Football League Cup. Simple eh? Err, no.... you have to start with a team in Round 2 and use your 'skill' to navigate your way to the final or as far as you can. All subject to the nice twists in the rules (see below).

1. Simply pick a team that will win their League Cup round 2 tie (by replay / pens if necessary) - see draw below.
1A. Note you can only start with a team in the second round and cannot join after the second round.
2. You cannot copy someone else's pick.
3. Win and you go through to the next round, lose you go out. Simple enough for ya?
4. Throughout the comp you can only change your pick in each round to the team your current pick has drawn (e.g. if you have Barnsley and they draw Man Utd in round 3 you, and only you, can switch to Man U). This is subject to rule 2. If you draw a team that somebody already has then you are stuck with your pick. Complicated enough for ya?
5. I don't think I'll need to tweak these rules later but I reserve the right to do so!

Just copy the last list on the line which keeps the list in alphabetical order by club - club name first, then yours..
Try and keep it in alphabetical order by club.

Please check you haven't missed off anybody who has posted since the list you copied.


The deadline is when your team kicks off so late entries will get less matches to choose from. Obviously no entries after round 2. (Sorry for no precise times for kickoffs)

QPR - Rochdale
Scunthorpe United v Bristol City
Watford v Gillingham
Peterborough United v Swansea City
Everton v Yeovil Town
Millwall v Nottingham Forest
Sunderland v Shrewsbury Town
Luton Town v Leeds United
Chelsea v Bristol Rovers
Burton Albion v Liverpool
Blackburn Rovers v Crewe Alexandra
Accrington Stanley v Burnley
Crystal Palace v Blackpool
Morecambe v AFC Bournemouth
Preston North End v Oldham Athletic
Oxford United v Brighton & Hove Albion FC
Reading v Milton Keynes Dons
Fulham v Middlesbrough
Newcastle United v Cheltenham Town
Exeter City v Hull City
Derby County v Carlisle United
Northampton Town v WBA
Wolverhampton v Cambridge United
Stevenage v Stoke City
Norwich City v Coventry City


Ties to be played week commencing 22 August

I'll make my pick later today

* If Bristol Rovers win today, they play Chelsea and Bristol City play Scunthorpe United. If Cardiff City win today, they play Scunthorpe and Bristol City play Chelsea.
