The TB Cup 2021.

Every week there will be a series of fixtures (or questions) for you to predict the results of. This will be a perfect chance for you to show how much you know about football (or how little) and prove that you are the smartest Ipswich fan. The 2020/21 season will feature the Main Competition including a repeat of last years Promotion/Relegation format and the popular addition of the 'Head to Head' Competition. We will also play for the coveted TB Cup which will commence in January 2021, which is based on the FA Cup!

Commiserations Marko, that was a very close run thing!!
I was watching the Barnsley/Chelsea game last night willing either side to score the second goal! That would have given me a vital 5 points for correctly guessing 20 goals scored, alas it was not to be. A win on 'penalties' was the order of the day.
All that said, you deservedly got the league bragging rights, so well done on that one

Hey AzMark,

You would have been in for a nasty surprise mate as there was no 5 points on offer for the correct number of goals scored, it was only a tie breaker for any drawn games. What really won it for you was the Barnsley v Chelsea 1-2 prediction which gave you 2 points to Marko’s 1 to draw you level, and of course winning that Tie Breaker. Anyway well done, it was a great game where the lead changed a few times over the three days.

Very well done indeed, Buddy. Was a great cup tie, too-ing & fro-ing! Was quite entertaining checking the scores and keeps the FA CUP interesting for us lot. So well done, good luck v Nicscreamer, he’s a very good player.

And to finish........ I hope Norwood chokes on that steak bake! :D

Oh my word, I guess only a Barnsley equaliser, to take a 3rd game into extra time (depriving Marko of 5 points [and me of 2]) would have seen me as clear winner!

On the second point, I guess our game pretty much mirrored our actual fixture of Everton v Spurs, that was a cracking "to & fro" match, which either side looked just as capable of winning or throwing it away!

You know what actually is hilarious....... I had said to myself, “ok let’s read about this Parrott guy” ....... read 38 negative posts out of 40 on the Millwall forum....... then chose Parrott??? 🤷‍♂️
Why do our heads always say, “Norwoods had his chance, this’ll be the game for Parrott!” 🤦‍♂️
Irritating.

I looked to see how I could fiddle the draw to add Mike to the “ones to dodge list” but my conscience wouldn’t let me. 🤔🧐😜

Some rather tasty fixtures in the TB Cup this weekend. Looking at Individual league positions, my match against Nicscreamer, while probably putting two of the weaker "teams" against each other, looks to be a fairly evenly contested affair! A great chance for either outsider to grab a place in the SF draw.

Will Bluewilf continue his very impressive form in cup competitions this season, or revert to League form?

As for the remaining players, all seasoned "big hitters", who knows who will prevail. Be nice to see if any poster wants to provide any odds at this stage?
