    Yeah, doesn't look like we'll be needing a preliminary round this year either, seeing as we only have 32 teams. Last year we started in week 6 or 7 with preliminaries, so it will probably be the same this year.

    If we get a few more people, you'll be playing your strength at the first few matches, if you manage to get through that there'll be a seeded draw with a potential to get the champion of WI, for example.

    The 1st part of the cup was the most interesting part for me last time, cracking banter and some tense games to watch!

    So the design is for an outright winner not competitive matches each week

    It's a cup, not a league. You're guaranteed a few games though, knockout doesn't start till after the group stages.

    Haven't put my name down yet btw, so yeah, Asterix XI etc.

    When everyone is knocked out of their respective cups, ffs.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Bah, I'm out of the Cup. Got to about Round 4 (maybe 5? idk) without a single home game and then forgot to set orders.

    I'm now out of the cup. Beat 2 teams that were better than me on the way, but finally got knocked out by one that was only marginally better. Fitness levels letting me down in the end, I think.
