    Pah. This isn't even a proper fixture yet you demand votes! Well I can't do it I tells ya! Where in the FA Cup is there the pointless side fixture including two teams already knocked out?

    I'm voting for Barventus.

    Well, Bari - but it came down to the toss of a coin. I care for neither.

    Some pretty harsh comments on the Phoenix now. They are pretty crap, but they are a football club.

    PSV. The Phoenix are not a football club.

    Bari. Juve are a joke.

    So our quarter-finalists look like this:

    Tranmere Rovers
    Exeter City
    FC Barcelona
    PSV Eindhoven
    Partick Thistle
    SV Werder Bremen
    AFC Ajax
    Wellington Phoenix

    Two lower league English teams, two Dutch giants and one each from Spain, Scotland, Germany &, improbably, New Zealand.

    I'll be posting one tie daily in the main draw from now on in, but will also be running a series of play-offs to determine CW's favourite team from a particular country or league where two have exited at the same time. Voting in both is, of course, mandatory.

    First off the randomiser:

    1. Wellington Phoenix v 2. PSV Eindhoven

    & we also have the inaugural David Platt Slimfast Shield to determine CW's favourite Italian side after the two nominees exited at the first hurdle:

    Juventus v AS Bari

    Main battle continues to be same as NUFAN

    but on italy we have to differ cant stand juve or AC Milan so it will be AS Bari

    PSV Eindhoven of course, hometown glory!

    And Bari. Idiotic Juve players with their ridiculous renaissance beards.
