For only the 2nd time in my 6 hattrick seasons I'm in the 4th round.
Post 'em when you see 'em!
I've got Prospects (229782) from III.12... My cup runneth over most likely!
At least it's at home again.
3rd season running to the 4th round.
SC Bearkat - Prior Lake Thunder
i've got the canton oaks from iv.60, think I got a shot at rd5 for the 1st time..
and I just noticed BS club 1844 Tote Kaninchen is in their division, any tips?
Henderson United (V.129) vs Racer X (III.16)
Well..it's been fun.
I've got Stick Men (223624), from IV.51. They are a strong team who have gotten as high as 279 hatstats last season, but have lingered around 215-ish this season.
Should be a tough matchup for PB.
I'm back to Round 4 for the 2nd year in a row...
and guess who's waiting for me in the 4th round for the 2nd year in a row?
That's right, Dark Shadows!
Last Year's MatchID: 80864370 (Norge Vikings 1 - 3 Dark Shadows)
This Year's MatchID: 94898856 (Norge Vikings - Dark Shadows)
I share a fed with them.
It was a very well-managed club (same vintage as mine and up 20 Hatstats average compared to me), although it looks like they've taken a step back this season.
Brays draws SA Griffins SC. Both draw similar ratings, generally, so having home field advantage is going to be huge. Bad draw for them, as Brays is much better than our cup ranking, posting the 70th best Hatstats in round three (on the road, but most of the other top 70 were also on the road).
Something to keep an eye on: how long will Essex County United's cash hold out? They've got a good enough team to brutalize the top of the draw, with the biggest threat looking to be receivership.
Eeked through in round 3 with a 2-1 win and was out rated. In round 4 drew a strong team from DV, Hedgehogs, who was relegated from DIV last season. He's got an awful league opp and my TS is irritated after already using 2 mots this season. Going to take some serious form improvment to convince me not to PIC, press, and pray.
Bump. Big day today!
PB should win againt their DIV opponent, Stick Men, as I'm at WOC TS and should have a fairly large midfield advantage.
Good luck to everyone!
You might win, I am a supporter of Racer X and he usually plays for the league and not the cup. You probably won't see Stephen Flynn.
Yeah I noticed he put up a fairly tame lineup for his last couple of matches. Might have a chance after all!
I am taking the route of training stamina and playing the A team twice this week. My opponent is a IV stalwart and has been playing his B team MF in Cup lately (trains PM). If he does tonight, then I have a huge chance of advancing based on expected MF ratings.
Edit: Looks like he threw a staring IM into his normal WTM slot. Might be close in MF.
PB jumps out to a quick 1-0 lead.
Game started, sellout for the stadium. They're counter attacking and got the first goal chance, but it missed.
He's playing Flynn as an IM. I think you got a good chance tonight
Up 1-0 on a chance from the left.
Little bro (SC Minden) is in a shoot-out in his Cup match. 2-2 currently.
35 minutes in, still 0-0. Had my first chance in the 26th.
CRAP. Henderson's Edgar Jones left the field after 39 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin.
On the flipside, we scored in the 40th.
Halftime, 1-0 with 76% posession.
Up 2-0 at halftime with 66% possession.
This is good.
At the half. Tied @ 1.
Winning possesion by 56%. Only 2 reported chances in the entire half. Must be getting my chances severely snuffed out.
A card a piece and I took a band-aid injury.
Lovely the average injury length for this is almost 2 weeks.
