Some of you start in the cup tonight, the rest of us will enter on Thursday. 

In Australia, I started off with an easy win in the first round, and am up against a banned team tonight - so that should be interesting.

how do you enter the cup? or do you have to qualify by winning your league or something?

You're automatically entered into it. You're playing 'SF Lower Hutt' on Thursday.

Cup games are played Mondays and Thursdays. You recieve half the gate takings in attendance money. 

It starts so late because it is timed so the final ends up in the final week of the season.

So umm... I played a cup match last night without even realising it. First team won 2-1, reserves lost 2-1.

First team is playing some aotearoa championship mob tomorrow night. Would be awesome to scrape a win so I meet a sponsor goal but don't have my hopes up. B team is playing the Fat Cockneys. Wish I could have got a fixture as easy as they have...

I got lucky with a 3-2 win against a side 2 divisions below me.

In Australia, I am into extra time with a 2-2 scoreline against a much better side a division above me.

And I just went 3-2 down in the 115th minute. Cruel.

So, I blew a 3-1 lead and went 3-3 after 90minutes. Scored in the 3rd minute of ET, and then on of my defenders got sent off in the 97th minute. They equalised again after 103' to make it 4-4.

For some bizarre reason, the penalty shootout started in the 117th minute, before the game had even finished. We lost the game 4-3 on penalties, and then had another defender sent off in the 118th minute, after the penalty shootout had finished but before the final whistle. 

And on top of all that, two of my players got 3 game injuries. I've just lost four of my starting XI before a crucial game against 3rd placed Wellington United tomorrow night. I'm less than pleased.

That has to be the weirdest game in history...

 

In hindsight maybe you should have rested some players with such an important game tomorrow

Yeah I should have, too late now though. The injuries shouldn't be a problem, I have strong players to take their place. The weak backline could be an issue though, may have to update my conditionals accordingly.

Same for me this season although mostly in midfield. I have 6 players suspended or injured at the moment and had to promote a crappy youth player to make up the numbers on my bench for tonights game!

Achieved my sponsor goal of 3 wins with a 2-0 win over a league 2 side. Don't see myself getting as far in the cup as I usually did in the past. I'll be lucky to stay in the premiership to be honest.
