Once again we are to have a six-a-side tournament. Once again, you have to submit your team, and if you don't do it by the deadline I'll assume you don't want to enter. Your 6 players remain constant through the whole tournament, you cannot alter it once we start so choose carefully.

Here is this years format:

  • Choose 6 players consisiting of 1xGK, 1xDF, 2xM, 2xS.
  • Minimum 3 players MUST be from your current squad. 6 players CAN be.
  • Up to 3 players CAN be from outside your squad.
  • Choose a captain, who will score double goals.
  • Submit your team by midnight 28th February 2002 to
  • No Manchester Utd players allowed (shouldn't drop out of the FA Cup, should you, scum)
  • No Home Advantage.

Also this year the points scoring will be as follows in a sort of trial run for next year.

  • Any player scoring a goal will be credited with just that. A goal.
  • An own goal counts against the player & team. ie For the opponent.
  • A clean sheet for a goalkeeper will CANCEL out the first goal for an opponent.
Here's some example's for the David Beckham's amongst you.

No goals scored, one clean sheet for home team - 0-0 result.
Away team score 1 goal, home team keep clean sheet - 0-0 result.
Away team score 2 goals, home team keep clean sheet - 0-1 result.
Away team score 2 goals, no clean sheets - 0-2 result.
Home team score 1 goal and keep clean sheet, away team score 1 goal - 1-0 result.

So you get the point. A clean sheet is only useful if the other team has scored.

So anyway, 11 teams entered this year, and as its name doesn't suggest, The League Cup will be knockout this year. Purely cos I can't be arsed to do a mini mini mini-league. Since there were 11 entries, the last 6 teams to submit a team need to play off, the 3 winners of which will join the first 5 teams who entered. See below.

A draw equals a replay. 1 leg for all ties except final, which will be 83.

Here are the 11 teams in order of entry received:
