Ok, this is the idea: it's a spin on the tried and tested "battle" format that has given so much joy to so many CWers over the years. What I'm looking for is 32, 64 or 128 teams (depending on uptake) which will then be drawn at random in an FA Cup styley. The (very slight) twist is that you won't be voting for which you think is the best team, has the best history or plays the best football; you'll be voting for the team you would support were they drawn against each other in a cup competition. So if, say Exeter drew Man Utd (it's not without precedent, you know... ) who would you wish to emerge victorious?
I'll start off with the idea of everyone nominating 2 teams and 64 in the draw, but this is subject to revision if interest is greater or smaller than I've guessed. It doesn't have to be a team you support, you could nominate a team just for the thrill of seeing them thrashed. There's no limit on the nationality of the team (so hopefully we can get some interesting cross-national match-ups), you can put forward any association football team who play in a professional league (just please don't nominate a team you and your mates play for and no-one else has ever heard of) and when we have enough teams or the nominations run dry I'll put them into a randomiser.
At the end of it we should know which is the most popular (or, more likely, least hated) football team amongst the CWian football fans.
Devastatingly straightforward, I'm sure you'll all agree. Ok, to kick things off I'll nominate:
