ffuk cup – october scores

October marks the Second Round of the Cup and the busiest round of fixtures in the season, with 128 teams battling across six gameweeks for a place in the Third Round. In a month that started with a Haaland hattie, we saw City losing to Liverpool before sitting out a midweek round of fixtures in GW12, and then Haaland got injured. And while it would be wrong to suggest that a single player could have that much impact on the fates of our Fantasy teams, looking back over the game month, what we did about Haaland seems not nearly as key as whether we owned a player named Miguel Almiron…

Almiron racked up 57 points in October, to Haaland’s 41. Just going to leave that there. Almiron totalled 59 points last season scoring just 1 goal in 1706 minutes, and in his best season for Newcastle, scored 4 goals and earned 2 assists. Transformation?

In the cup the combination of these two factors made for some whopping wins, and some loathsome losses. Manager of the Month David Harrison (448 points) made easy work of his cup fixture, beating Nick Hardie (388) by a comfortable 60 points. Unlucky for Nick, as he would have won most fixtures, and he would have even beat the player with the biggest win, Craig Smith, who finished the month on 375 points, but beat Jack Rackley 227 by a staggering 148 points. And I thought I was having a bad month.

Elsewhere it was bum whistle time for Roni Friel (384), who beat Harry Dickinson by a point, and for Trevor Dennison (367) too, who also downed his opponent by just a point.

No draws this month, which sees 64 teams through to a horrifically brutal November, with just two gameweeks, Haaland still a doubt, flags all over the pitch and a World Cup on the horizon.
