    well after winning away 2-0 in the first leg the 2nd leg at home was not strate forward as after 22 minutes i was 2-0 down and onto extra time so made two subs and in the 98min my sub scores to put me through 3-2 on agg and knock-out stage, think this one is a step to far but will give it go

    I've beaten 3 L20 teams to reach the last 16 of the cup this season, although technically I wasn't the underdog when my L19 team had more quality than the teams I've beaten to get there.

    I am in season/level 2, and almost beat a team today who was a level above me, drew 1-1 then tonight I was 1-0 up ten mins to go, even saved a penalty then the nightmare began and lost 2-1, I think i should of changed some arrows when 1-0 up or something so a bit gutted that I lost, but will learn for next season

    Got a 0:0 away draw and I'm through to the 1/8-finals after that huge 4:2 in the first leg where it was 0:2 on half time. Waiting for my next opponent - probably yet another 7 or 8-level team.

    Still, with an MC getting the red card in that game and another MC suffering YET ANOTHER 4-day injury in trainings afterwards - it's quite disappointing for a game from which I expected some relief after all the problems I've had in the past week. Just sold the red carded player for a price lower than his value (go figure, when I want such a player at that time of the day - it's a bid war) to prepare for an expensive replacement. I just hope I can get one and for the injury spree to finally end, so I can finally count on my full squad.

    2 seasons in a row getting to this stage is quite the achievement, considering everybody's complaints about not being able to get past the preliminary matches. So at least I have some bragging rights, but I'm not giving up yet! Team that eliminated me last season went to the final and I almost beat him, so I'm hoping for some better luck this time around.

    And of course, it's perfectly timed that there's no single player that's worth bidding for today.
