The Blog Cup - 5th Round Results

I've finally got round to calculating the 5th Round Blog Cup results from all the way back in Week 20, and I can reveal that the cut-off to qualify for the Quarter Finals was...

...52 points

By far the lowest of the competition, but it was a tough week with many people struggling to find time to update their teams over the holidays. Disappointingly I've been knocked out with a measly 41.5, but the Blog Team survived despite the fact I hadn't actually changed it from the previous week!

Well done to all those who qualified - the quarter finals in Week 24 will see the remaining 101 teams cut down to 50!

We don't have any Premier League games this weekend as it's the 3rd Round of The FA Cup, but I'll be back next week to review Week 22 and provide a full Player Picks post for Week 23.

My Week 22 is not going well...I'm on 56 points with Reina, Skrtel, Adam, Phillips, Gerrard & Torres to go. There's still a chance of 100 points, but it's a slim chance. How are you getting on? 

Did you make it through?

1st, right now 85point , chance of 130, gerrard torres cole skrtel agger adam

DeviLxDeviL said...

Sad, out of Blog Cup with 40 pts.. haha.

Well 79 pts with 7 to go.. Damn -9 from Reina, what happened to Liverpool? Sigh.

Miec said...

such a crazy week
still i cant believe that 52 pts was enough to get through (only 100 of 200 teams go to the next round!!)

imp_moo said...

I wanna member for this chart, team name(blue devils), what i am doing?

kwyjibo said...

Already out of the blog cup in round 4...

84 points this week so far, with 7 'potential' DGers. I say 'potential', because I still have a bad feeling some of the players are going to get rested after the FA cup. We'll see. Still hope for a 100+ week. Skrtel-Evatt-Phillips-Adam-Gerrard-Torres. Surely I can get a measly 16+ points from them?!

Got Nani on the BD @17 before he jumped to 22, but now he's back to 19...that's some crazy scoring, yahoo!

I still have no idea what to do for next week, with all those 'pool players, most of them will have to go. Already dropped Gerrard and Evatt to fit in Nani.

Cap said...

World Cup WornOuts made it through to the next round of the BLOG CUP...just. I am a Private League member (EPL Madness) but I would like to acknowledge that I couldn't have got this far without the AM Blog.

Zabaleta's red card has been overturned, no suspension for him. Set to continue in place of Kolarov?

Brendan said...

i have 75 already with Reina, Skrtel, Adam and Torres to go. I took Van Persie and K Nolan, both of whom paid off - 32.5 between the 2

Anonymous said...

At 99.5 with G Johnson, Gerrard, C Adam and Torres to go. 59.5 of my point came from Hart, Coleman and VdV, so I am hoping to get close to 130 for the week.

On a side note I dropped Balotelli and picked up Best. ANy thoughts from Newcastle supporters if Best gets a few starts along side Carroll?


Alan Pardew said...


I'd imagine that Best will get the odd game here and there but as things stand Shola and Andy will still be first choice strikers. IF they're both fit by the 16th then I'm sure they will both start vs Scumderland. If you're not aware, Ameobi has an incredible record against them as he is a Geordie who loves showing the Mackems who's boss and Andy missed out in the 5-1 mauling so will be hungry to score too.

Having said that, I did BD Best just in case one of Carroll and Ameobi isn't fit because surely he's third choice now- Lovenkrands is ineffectual and Ranger is still young (and turns up late for training).

If you got Best in, I'd keep him there until we get some solid injury news. Remember, there's no need to make any rash decisions as there's still over a week to go before the deadline.

Anonymous said...

You're dropping Balotelli at 4.75, i'm picking him @9.70. I believe he'll start against wolves and with Dzeko's deal been delayed by work permit Mario could be the real deal.

Anonymous said...

The Daily Mail says with the youngster struggling with knee injury, it is understood that City’s medical staff are considering whether to advise a small ‘clean-up’ operation or merely a period of rest.

Balotelli has already had one procedure to repair ligament damage in his right knee this season and Mancini had been hoping to give the Italy striker a run of games following a hat-trick against Aston Villa last week.

However, the 20-year-old has not played since and a decision on whether to operate will be taken today. Surgery would only rule out Balotelli for about a fortnight but could see him miss games against Wolves, Aston Villa and Birmingham.

FYI on Mario

Stato said...

Made it through in 57th place.
Saw results on holiday in Egypt and thought I would be out with poor results for some of my team.
Have lost ground over Xmas and New Year and out of top 500 but I'm back now and looking forward to Week 23 to get back on track.

Am I right in thinking that week 24 will be another double gamer week?

Currently have:
Robbo, Skrtel, Paintsil
Gerrard, VDV, Nani, Lamps, Adam
Benjani, Super Mario

Looking to ship out Lamps and Reina.
Any thoughts, anybody??

Synch said...

Would you look at that, missed out by half a point! Oh well, top of the losers!

Anonymous said...

Niiiiiiiiiice, qualified in 3rd place. Blog Cup is the only competition I'm focusing on as I'm too far back now to make it to the top 500.

Kellz said...

Synch you tied with me for top fo the losers lol :D Good work mate

I'm having a great week at this point despite Balotelli and Kolarov both out of the lineup. Sitting on 121.5 with Cothcart, Adam and Torres left. Big weeks from Hart, Coleman, Nani, VDV, Van Persie and Adam (so far). The points this week have pushed me to a career best 247th place overall.

Brought in Koscielny on the barn door. Will decide how to proceed with Adam, Torres and Balotelli after this weekend. Balotelli depends on injury news and Dzeko resolution. Torres and Adam probably depend on how they perform this weekend, and the corresponding price fluctuation.

So far for the following week, I'm sitting on this, with 4.66 available still:
Coleman, Kolarov, Koscielny
Nani, VDV, Lampard, Adam
Van Persie, Torres, Balotelli

I've considered going from Balotelli/Torres to Brunt/Bent. Make that type of choice this time next week.

Only chose 4 DG. 75 points with adam, varney, skrtel and torres to go. Special mention to Hart, who got me another double digit score. Since I bought him at 9.71 three weeks ago, he hasn't conceded a goal! Absoute bargain at that price.

My condurum is whether to drop Bale at 15. With so many double gameweeks coming up, I am leaning towards dropping him but am scared he will return to haunt me. I dropped him once already this season at 12, bought him back at 15 a few games later. I won't want to have to bring him back in this time.

Anyway there is still a week to ponder over it and hopefully make a good decision.

Ready for next week : )

Zabaleta Jara Pantsil
VDV Adam Malouda Bentley
RVP Kalou Zigic

Good luck to all

Gerrard got red carded, but will still score more than Torres the way he's playing.

Or you could use your brain and read the Friday post above, where he said:

"We don't have any Premier League games this weekend as it's the 3rd Round of The FA Cup, but I'll be back next week to review Week 22 and provide a full Player Picks post for Week 23"

12.21: It's now official. Beckham's move to Spurs is off and he will instead spend a month training with the club.

Thanks Pauly, I had just put Cahill in my team and couldn't work out why he didn't play the last game!
