Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door …… to the Milk Plate!

The Statue of Liberty knows her fantasy football (even if she is French!). She knows the heartbreak of first round cup exits. The agony of one bad gameweek ruining a gamemonth score. Of ghost teams and their lucky captain choices, or coming off second best in the game of Pep roulette.

The Milk Plate is the light! For all the hard-done-by first round losers of the FFUK Cup. F**k the FFUK Cup. They’re the real losers. This is where it’s at! This is where the real teams plays, that live and breathe their fantasy football. Sheffield Wednesday on a cold, snowy January afternoon vs those pampered, prawn sandwich-eating elites in their boxes in the Premier League!

This is the Milk Plate.

It is the very heart of Fantasy Football

If you lost in the first round of the FFUK Cup, you are automatically entered for the Milk Plate. 128 Managers, including the two byes. The first job then was to decide who should play the byes. This was done using an online draw randomiser, and the two lucky managers were: Lawrence Sprigings and Fabian Mascoll! These jammy so-and-sos get a free pass to round 2!

The next step was to seed all the remaining managers based on their October gamemonth score. Lawrence and Fabian seeded 1 and 2, the Byes seeded 127 and 128. Finally a draw was created for all the rounds through to the final, using a Wimbledon-style approach with the first seed at the top of the draw, the second seed at the bottom, and the third and fourth seeds in the middle, such that the four top seeds couldn’t play each other until the semi finals. And so on and so forth. The full first-round draw is therefore as follows:
