And then there were four! We are into the semifinals of the Backpost League Cup and things are really heating up. There is only one Top 10 team left in the competition, and third-place Herk City will be in a confident mood to progress after their 62-53 victory over second-place Dynasty of FC Hammer. We’ll hand the mic to James Alexander Gordon for the Classified Cup Results:
“In the Backpost League Cup:

Thank you, Mr. Gordon.
Looking over the League table, and hoping my figuring is correct, since the site still hadn’t updated as of this writing, coloradokeeper now has a 10-point at the top. It looks as if it’s his to lose and Paddy Power is already paying out on their title bets.
The battle then becomes for second place and it’s a tight one as three teams are within three points of each other. Second-place Dynasty of FC Hammer is currently struggling with just one win in their last five matches. A point further back in third is Herk City, who have won three straight and will face fourth-place DisgruntledNumpties in Week 31, a match that will go a long way to determining how the table sorts out. Speaking of the Numpties, they’re currently the hottest team in the league. They are unbeaten in their last 11 (10-0-1) and have won seven in a row.
Ahmad Haziq Hashim moved into the fifth spot, leapfrogging El nino, who dropped to sixth after losing to seventh-place The Xerex’s Team. El nino ended a two-game winning streak while Xerex ended a two-game losing run. Afrikan Letsatsi, who have only taken a point from their last two matches, are struggling to hold down eighth place, obviously still woozy from the heady win over coloradokeeper three weeks ago. Giorgio Chinaglia remain ninth, tied on points with Letsatsi after ending a five-game losing streak. My Old27m team rounds out the top 10, having won three in a row, and five of the last six. I will be looking to move up the table this coming week, and in the process exact some revenge on mudheads, who knocked me out of the Cup.
Performance of The Week: Our fearless leader coloradokeeper took the gong this week, for the third time this season. The league leaders trounced tranungkite 68-30, with their defense and forwards leading the way. Both Thomas Vermaelen and Johnny Evans scored a goal, earned a clean sheet and pulled in Bonus Points. Up front Yakubu grabbed a goal and 3 Bonus points, while Captain van Persie notched an assist.
Unlucky Loser: We had a tie this week between Dynasty of FC Hammer and Afrikan Letsatsi. They drew their match with 53 points each, a total good enough to beat 33 other clubs, but not each other.
Thanks MGlo. With Week 30 ending after today’s Man U-Fulham match, keep an eye out for that wrapup, which will include League Cup semifinal results.
