The Blog Cup - Quarter Final Results

The Blog Cup is hotting up! Week 24 was the Quarter Finals, and we were set to reduce the remaining 101 teams down to 50 in preparation for the semi-final in Week 28.

I've finished calculating the results, and the cut-off was...

175 points!

Congratulations if you made it through! Please see the results at the bottom of this post for full details.

Now, I know earlier in the season I had promised two more Blog Leagues & a second 1000 team Cup competition to follow in 2011, but it is now looking increasingly unlikely I'll have the time to fulfil this promise. Apologies if you were looking forward to this - I'm still exploring the options - but with gameweeks coming thick and fast now I really need to focus my efforts on the main aim of this blog; to produce player recommendations and team/injury news every week, as well as organising the conclusion of The Blog Cup.

I'll be back on Thursday with the Week 26 Player Picks, but for now please let me know whether you made it through! 

Also, how's your Week 25 going? And how's your barndoor team looking?

AM anything you do is a bonus so don't worry if there's no time for another cup competition, there's always next season.

D'oh, missed by half a point! Oh...wait...I'm already out...

Congrats to those who made it.

Thanks AM for your hard work.

Miecio said...

29th - AArshavin

There is still a chance to win this cup :D

outside top 500 in overall standing, but still there is still room to improve + many many unlucky decisions so far (for example: i got pantsil + stockdale that week <- pantsil own-goal against liverpool =/)

TARHEELS said...

I was ranked 2757 overall last week and have made it through in the Blog Cup. (In 18th.) Is any left who is ranked farther down than that?
Blog Cup weeks are my only good ones...

Anonymous said...

I wanted to make it into the top 50 but that stupid double week ruined it for me. Oh well, top 100 ain't bad either.

Hi AM,

Up to 762 overall but OUT of the Blog Cup. Gutted. It was my best chance for silverware this season!

The Orphans.

Hello AM. Cabaroota queen ranked in the top 8000 and still in the cup!!! My minileague rival the free flying/falling is very supportive :)

gman26 said...

Where the hell did Gary O'Neil come from? He must have knocked Spector out of the lineup.

PBS said...

Yay 34th so still up and running in blog cup!

donut said...

36 and still in contention

I really want the Blog team to win though!!

AM any chance of letting us know how the Blog team is getting on or sending a link to its page, not sure how to search for it...

where is suarez? will his price start out really high considering he scored today?

Anonymous said...

Hey quick question. Does anyone know how long Squillaci is suspended for and will he be back for Arsenals week 27 double? Because Im going to want to have an arsenal dman that week and dont want to lose my Koscielny discount just for week 26.

Much thanks,

There goes my Cup dreams. I shall console myself that it was a close thing. Sticking with Hart punished me.

BD team

Kolarov Coleman Kelly
VDV Mereiles Hoilett Bentley (4 Adam)
RVP Dzeko Tevez (4 Elmander)

I did have Lampard at a discount but I couldn't get my head around how Torres will fit in.

I had intended dropping Mereiles, but tonights game hasn't answered any questions about how he fits into Kenny's plans.

McLeish showing new confidence in Zigic makes Bentley a better buy.

I was going juggle in Tevez for the Birmingham game but the was rumours he may not start. I can't resist him against the Baggies.

Hart and Coleman's good performances are no longer generating exciting rewards. Reluctantly they are both now in the firing line.

@anon Re: Suarez

It usually takes the Yahooligans about 2 weeks to make the new signs available.

Saurez's goal shouldn't bump his price up very much, as his starting price will be averaged down by zeros for recent games.

There is always Dzeko and Sturridge to console yourself with in the mean time. If you fancy a punt Zigic might also worth considering on the Barndoor.


TARHEELS said...

It's interesting how you can paint yourself into a corner with discounted players. On the backdoor, I was very lucky to get Szczeny as a keeper with only .03 point to spare as I picked up the 2 cheapest defenders as fillers.
Arse has at least 4 good matchups coming in a row, so I dropped my discounted queen (that's Reina in spanish).

Anonymous said...

Suarez on yahoo at 8.44. got him. was hoping to get him at around 6 though.

Anonymous said...

Thats quite the risk at Chelsea. If anything, David Luiz came in at 5.81. Now he may be a good pick for a cheap chelsea defender

Anonymous said...

Suarez starts at 8.44 :-(

Wimbledon 1988 FA Cup Champs, no comments? MK Dons wish they could get to the FA Cup final....

Anonymous said...

I just prefer Rooney but Suarez looks very sharp, i think Liverpool will score @ Chelsea. He took to the league like fish to water and is not a great risk even @ Chelsea.

Anonymous said...

Woop! Through to the semi final, brilliant. I have a feeling this is my year :D

My team page is like this:

Kolarov Coleman Koscielny
VDV Adam Nani Bentley
Dzeko Bent Rooney

I dont see me making many changes to this team, if any. Looks like Obinna is well and truly back on the scene too!


Anonymous said...

118 points this week. Happy enough.

My team is currently:

Koscielny, Kelly, Luiz
VDV, Nani, Richardson, Silva
RVP, Rooney, Suarez

I like the look of it.

It's been a somewhat difficult season so far, but I'm proud to be #9 on the weekly performance this for week 25.

It's also been a difficult day for typing. I meant "list" not this.

Merv XI [AM.Blog] said...

I got 23.50 pts for the first 4 games. Who would have thought I could reach the 110 pt mark?

Definitely not sold on Suarez at Stamford Bridge. But David Luiz has a good chance of CS if he slots straight in the Chelsea backline.

Ken said...

Bolton players, Elmander/Holden Bah humbug!!

Have I learned a lesson? Gutted my team thinking great things ahead.

They are done on my team...

I also said that about Liverpool players and now I have 3-4 the past few weeks.

Bottom line...It's either I will never learn


I have a lot to learn.

I think I know which it is!!

Anonymous said...

I think Ivanovic needs a rest but keep feeling that There will be no CS in that game, i've dropped M.Kelly and i'm trying to replace Reina also.
