The 2011 Prediction League Cup
5 years ago

Sorry folks

Thanks to all who have played, each and every one of you.

Thanks for your time. But we have had too many people pull out to make it worthwhile.

Maybe we will be back in the future, but for now, its over.

Sorry but whats this? Lol and why aren't I qualified! Lol
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 5 years ago
Yeah we deserved at least a pre-qualifying round for the last spot in the cup. Unfair.

Maybe there should be a less important cup then. Europa League-style
Soccergal293 (Barcelona) 5 years ago
Lol but how did THEY qualify? I'm higher than a lot of those people. Is it because I'm last in my division? Well that not fair if this right after the promotions and relegations because I was first in the division 2 until I got promoted and the people who were in this division 1 just qualified because they are now 1st in division 2.
But then I'm still confused because Chelseaman93 didn't get in but marcloo did? And their both in the same division and then same with Division 2 GreatScot is 1st and he didn't get through? Yet rockerr is 6th in division 2 and he got through? Is this at random?

Sorry just trying to figure out how this works lol

Don't worry just saw this stuff

"Anyone scoring +4 or more in Week Three will be automatically entered into the PL Cup last 16. Further qualifying rounds will be announced on a weekly basis"

"PL Cup will be a knockout cup competition that runs alongside the Prediction League, much like the FA Cup or equivalent. I failed to mention that Rockerr gets a bye into the last 16 for being the incumbent champion"

"The top 3 scores this week will automatically be entered into the PL Cup!"

"There was a tie for 3rd best score this week, so 4 were entered into the cup.

Confirmed qualifiers so far are:

Hang Time
Simon Hang

Cup competition will start on week 10, more details will be posted that week.

6 more slots to be filled, next rounds of qualifying will be week 8 and 9"

And I had no idea
Couldn't we have just done it by Goal Difference! Then it could have been

1. Ordaye
2. Bijack
3. Elbert
4. HangTime
5. Daalayo
6. FootyRulz
7. SimonHang
8. Sam
9. Tony
10. Netnerd
11. Lifgaurd
12. Marcloo
13. Soccergal293
14. GreatScot
15. Huljani14
16. Rockerr

Carling Cup? Lol

Well FootyRulz missed his entry last week. Hopefully it was just a blip and he will be back this week.

However, if you miss 2 weeks in a row, you leave the competition, which would open up 1 more slot in the cup. Should FootyRulz not submit an entry this week, then that matchup will be postponed this week, and replayed next week against the highest scorer(in week 10) of those that havent qualified

So I might have my match rearranged? , your worse than sky sports ffs.... Lmao
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 5 years ago
I'd rather have FootyRulz stay in competition. Don't like to lose more people
Tony (footytube staff) 5 years ago
Me too, I don't see the sense getting involved in something like this, then when its not going so great, just give up, and ruin everyone elses fun.
I'm not saying that's what the last two that didn't submit any selections have done, there could be any reason why they didn't submit teams last week, but look how many have dropped away since it started

The PL obituaries will be written on saturday morning if we drop below the magic 20
