FootRulz, I'm glad you could join in this week, but a wee thing, in your draws you just have Milan, which Milan would that be then? Inter or AC? Cheers bud
BoboRed (Leeds United) 3 years ago
There's only one Milan!
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 years ago
I guess he means AC Milan, because people usually associate Inter Milan as "inter" or Internazionale; and Milan as "AC. Milan", the most successful club in Italy
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Yeah your probably right, i'll take it that he meant AC unless he says otherwise!
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
I couldn't see anyone picking inter milan to draw at home to chievo.... Lol, it has to be AC
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Make it that we ALL have to write the full team name down, its not gonna' kill ya.... Simples.... !
Sam (Juventus) 3 years ago
Damn Tony.... 2 draws already! I've started preparing my concession speech.... Will be rooting for you to rep the mods this time around.... Kill em all!
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Not enough to match your awesome selections sam, I thought I had a bit of a chance.  I'll be rooting for ya mate, go get em>>>>>>
Sam (Juventus) 3 years ago
I'm not sure how it was scored.... Pretty sure AC Milan won their away game.... Either way, I appreciate your backing.... Hopefully not one and done...
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Ended up a high scoring match, some of the other games I would have won with that score, but those three draws of yours were the killers
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
You actually won the 2nd leg aswell, ac milan won away, and you never got the 2 points for it

If Aston Villa cannot hold Newcastle for a draw, I'm out of this comp. The odds are against me  Well done Ordaye
Ordaye (Liverpool) 3 years ago
It is honor for me playing against you Rockerr. YNWA
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
1-0 Villa 18 minutes to go! Can Newcastle grab an Equalizer and save Rockerr's cup dream?!?!    So tense!
Ordaye (Liverpool) 3 years ago
He needed more than Aston Villa draw
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Yeah a bloody miracle, you tanked him!
LumpOfCelery (Chelsea) 3 years ago
This is embarassing, I am going lose when my opponent didn't show up the first leg
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
I got only one draw. Lifeguard has the same pick so it won't help me. I think that was it for me.

If only Welbeck had scored in injury time. I had Sunderland down for a draw but they could not hold it
Lifeguard 3 years ago
Lol - I can't believe I got all three draws right
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Wow. Crazy.    Well done man.

GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
I take it you've worked out your score.... Your beating Elbert 11-8 atm! That means it's 19-19 with just the AC Milan match to play, if they win Elberts through if not it goes to the TB seen as away goals will be void too! Nailbiting stuff! Lol
BoboRed (Leeds United) 3 years ago
I make it 14-8 atm
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
I've posted results so far, i'll need to double check!
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Yeah your right I haven't added your palermo result yet! That means your through!

Congrats Zlatan, at some point there I thought I had done just enough to qualify.... But just like the 1st leg, you were pretty good with the draws again. Good luck next round, and hope you win it actually.... Would make me feel a lot better, if I lose to the eventual Champ


Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 years ago
Thanks mate! It was a good game especially the 2nd leg, you did pretty well too. Seriously when I realised that my home picks were mistakenly chosen, I felt like "oh-oh" this is gonna' be real tight.
The next round will be exciting!

The Gazza Saga is still running

Lifeguard 3 years ago
Marcinny, thanks for making it interesting - I enjoyed the suspense of having tied in the first round to make it more suspenseful come second round. A worthy opponent - thanks for the game
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Well, I don't feel bad. It was a good battle. I am still bitter with Sunderland as that should have been a guaranteed draw, although nothing is guaranteed in football. But I was hoping to get 12 points again. That was my aim rather than the qualification and I failed.

It was an epic battle (although I think Bobo Red stole the show in the second leg.)

Good luck with the rest of the tournament

The Netnerd Gazzette

Many surprises in the Netnerd Memorial Cup:

Great comebacks by Bobored, Ordaye (watch out this guy) and GreatScot.

Tony won the second leg, but not enough to defeat Sam in aggregate. (One mod out, a couple of more to go. Watch out guys. Lol)

Lifeguard offered the best performance of the first round with 26 points in total. (Of course only someone like him could eliminate that powerhouse, currently known as marcinny - lol).

VeljaSerbian and Zlatan won in the second leg as well. Zlatan had to fight back a great effort by Chelseaman to come back, but as they say: this is not the season for Chelsea and their fans.

Footyrulz turned out in the second leg and won, but he paid the dues of his absence in the first clash. Ayyam is through without much glory, but what counts is the name in the ticket and he is still there.

The field is less crowded now and the remaining 8 gladiators are preparing the quarter finals. As one of them was quoted recently "it is dog against dog in the prediction game". There will be some barking, menacing teeth showing and bites in the coming days as the race to the top continues

That's how I roll, win with out style
VeljaSrbin (FK Partizan Beograd) 3 years ago
Now waiting for quarterfinals draw, to see who will my people kidnap and torture next! It worked on Hulanji...
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Damn, I should asked for your help against Lifeguard. My people are liberals and thought waterboarding was too much
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Cheers for that sports page style news flash Marcinny, I will do the finished updated scores when I get home from work, then I will post the quarter final fixtures too!
Cheers guys!
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Thanks for noticing
BoboRed (Leeds United) 3 years ago
Well it was a great battle against Elbert, and the manner in which I beat him was really quite sickening.

We both had 2 draws the same, so the 3rd one was always going to be crucial.

Palermo were 2-0 up going into injury time, and Cesena had had 2 men sent off. I switched the game off.

90+1 Cesena pull one back, then get a 3rd man sent off!
90+6 Cesena level the scores to 2-2 with the last kick of the game.

That was a ridiculous game, and if it was the one that you were counting on, pretty sure you can now admit to believing in miracles LOL!
BoboRed (Leeds United) 3 years ago
I shall have to thank the Italian football mafia for deciding they wanted this match to be a draw, before a ball was kicked
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
That's why I never pick from Serie A anymore. Unless you're related to their mafia (hints: the two posters above, lololol) you'll be screwed worse than in a casino
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 3 years ago
What a crazy match ending, incredible!. That kind of scenario is kinda scary wow (O_o)
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Kudos to all those that progressed to the qtr finals, it was great while it lasted.
In the interest of fair play, I am offering myself to do the qtr final draw, as it can't be left to greatscot to do it, it wouldnt look right, and I'm sure john wouldnt mind.
OR anyone else can do it whos no longer involved, or wasnt involved at all
Theo (Chelsea) 3 years ago
I agree, Tony should do the draw!
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Yeah go for it Tony, I'm pushed for time today anyway that would be great!
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
A modest suggestion. Make a list the top four who made most points in the first round: starting with Lifeguard (26) so they don't clash in the quarter finals.

Just an idea. Feel free to dismiss it
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Dismissed.... Lmao
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
It will be a straight draw, aided by my grand daughter, shite or bust, no seedings, were doing the draw old school, take your chances.
I will have it up shortly.
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Fair enough
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Any chance for organizing a competition for the 9-16 places?    GreatScot? Tony? Ayyam? BoboRed? Any takers?
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
You organize it mate, and i'll certanly take part
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
We could set a different thread up.... "the duffers cup".... Lol
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Hahahaha. I am too lazy to do the Photoshop work
Theo (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Count me in Marcinny, finally something I have a great chance of winning lol

Sam (Juventus) 3 years ago
Grand daughter huh? Is she a mod hater? The mods are being forced to eliminate each other one by one and then the last remaining one will be picked off by someone who didn't have to go through the same ridiculousness.... Guess that just happened to be the way the cookie crumbled
Marcinny (New York Red Bulls) 3 years ago
Down with the mods! Power to the people!

Hahahahahahaha

Now I wonder whether the photo in Tony's profile is Best or Che Guevara
