League Cup Second Round Draw Former Charlton manager AlanCurbishley took some time out from saying no to the head position at Wolves to conduct the draw for the second round, with matches taking place this coming week, Gameweek 27.
The marquee matchup pits the top two teams in our league, coloradokeeper and Dynasty of FC Hammer. The draw is as follows:
Gunters v EPL Quakes
Fluffy Bunnies v LildWeaver
Kimo’s v Ahmad Haziq Hashim
Disgruntled Numpties v YourAdHere
Herk City v Joakimovo Stado
Old27M v Mudheads
Socr_maniac v Serbian zbornaja
thissiteblows@pmike v Average
Dynasty of FC Hammer v Coloradokeeper

United SUV v I am Liverpool
Afrikan Letsatsi v Chelsea Chris
RayDomPsychicAdvisor v Bryan 04 Leverkusen
Useful Shot, That v Giorgio Chinaglia
The Xerex’s Team v Tango
Sunshine FC v El Nino
Back in the league, the Coloradokeeper’s lead at the top grew to a certainly insurmountable eight points as the Rocky Mountain boys beat slumping Giorgio Chinaglia 52-46, and second-place Dynasty of FC Hammer, playing without a goalkeeper, lost to Mudheads 47-46.
Performance of the Week Our top team this week was Joakimovo Stado, who netted 62 points after a 4-point deduction for making an extra transfer. He, too, played without a keeper (Michael Vorm’s illness left many of us needing backup), but picked up 24 points from his Arsenal midfield duo of Alex Song and Theo Walcott.
Unlucky Loser The award was shared this week between the aforementioned Giorgio Chinaglia and Dynastyof FC Hammer.
With Wednesday’s international fixtures out of the way (congrats U.S.! good try, England!), we’re back to the regularly scheduled EPL programming. The next Gameweek starts on Saturday.
Thanks OMATV. As always, don’t forget to set your lineups.
