    They didn't but Everton have done me a huge favour. I think that makes us level going in to the final game. Squeaky bum time.

    After last nights games the winners are clear in 6 of the ties but the HDQ vs Q and GeordieHalfbreed vs LeoBilly ties are still in the balance. Q is the slight favourite in the first one and latter is still tied at 114 each. There are actually two more matches to go as Bournemouth vs Crawley was switched to Tuesday from Saturday. Don't forget you can change your predictions but there will be a 1pt penalty for each change.

    Through to next round already:
    The #Can's Master
    Albert's Chip Shop
    The Ginger Marks
    Musty Frog
    Darren Peacock's Ponytail
    Jakarta Toon

    Captain Wrong is nicely poised for next year's competition.

    Draw for 5th/6th round ties will be made on Wednesday this week.

    Trying to figure out who you are referring to - we certainly haven't let @captain wrong into the Moderators Cartel.

    It is noticeable that three of the big 4 (ACS, The #Cans Master and JakartaToon) are through and only @Nev is slowly morphing into the Newcastle Not606 version of Arsenal. ACS and The #Can's Master have been pushing behind the scenes for us 3 to come in at the semi-final stage leaving one place open for the rest of you to play for but I have stood my ground on behalf of the little man (and Obi).

    Look I'm not one for excuses, but unfortunately I didn't even predict I the first round, I thought I'd done enough, but it's an accumulation of points and don't forget all the noise .. I've rolled up my sleeves

    Still all to play for in the two remaining ties to decide:

    Q now only 4pts ahead of HDQ
    LeoBilly now 2pts ahead of GeordieHalfbreed after picking up 4pts for result and correct goal difference last night.

    As it stands:
    HDQ requires a 3-1 win tonight to go through. Any other result will see Q through.
    GeordieHalfbreed requires a 3-0 win for Bournemouth to win by 4pts or by a 3 goal difference to go through on the tiebreak. Any other result sees LeoBilly through.

    Just you watch Bournemouth win 3-0 tonight. Hoping Mark Wright bags a double for Crawley tonight.

    Wait, there's another game?

    Not sure my heart can take much more of this. Talk about the magic of the FA cup.

    Come on you Cherries!

    So, we're at exactly the same point last night that I switched off last night. 1-1 after an hour. 3 late goals for Bournemouth?

    My mistake was switching on the radio and supporting Bournemouth. I never learn.

    GG mate and Good luck in the next round

    Or you could simply kick the other player’s butt like I did with Crone and not have to rent a room like you two.
