In this post I will be looking at the group stages of the bidstack FM Cup. If you haven’t heard of the bidstack FM Cup before or you don’t know what it is about. I wrote an article on it here. The group stages for the bidstack FM Cup were drawn live on Twitch by one of the admins Mozza. It was a very tense draw with many big hitters being drawn together in the same groups.
As you can see from the draw there are some really challenging and even groups. Group B is a prime example of the Football Managaer big guns going up against each other with FMZweierkette and FMGuru in that group. Group H is a perfect example of a level playing field with KylexFM, KegManPlays, DatguyJaycee and Parkin90 all being at a similar reputable standing.
Beardmore FM 5-1 Inverted Wingbacks. Inverted Wingbacks 2-0 Beardmore FM
Rampant FM 0-3 Inverted Wingbacks. Inverted Wingbacks 0-6 Rampant FM
Only a few games played in Group A bit it is already heating up to be a very tightly contested group. It all hangs on Regista’s games. But Inverted Wingbacks currently in top spot with 4 games played.
Mozza 2-2 StannersFM. StannersFM 1-1 Mozza
FM Zweierkette 2-0 FM Guru. FM Guru 2-1 FM Zweierkette
Not many games played in Group B. But already very tight in the games. The big guns had to settle for 1 win a piece whilst Mozza and StannersFM couldn’t make the most of their matches. FM Zweierkette currently top on goal difference.
Superr Pengu1n 3-0 Otterdam City. Otterdam City 1-0 Superr Pengu1n
FM Trequartista 3-3 Otterdam City. Otterdam City 3-2 FM Trequartista
Just the 2 sets of games played in this group. That’s Otterdam City looking pretty at the top of the table. But, so much left to be decided in this group. Some would say extra pressure has been thrown onto Fryman7; previous FMWEC champion. But who knows, Superr Pengu1n too on goal difference after only the 2 games played.
CookieFM 4-1 Vulrak. Vulrak 5-3 CookieFM
RJPlays 2-2 Azzopardi. Azzopardi 1-1 RJPlays
RJPlays 7-1 Vulrak. Vulrak 2-6 RJPlays
CookieFM 1-0 RJPlays. RJPlays 1-1 CookieFM
Azzopardi 1-2 Vulrak. Vulrak 1-1 Azzopardi
CookieFM 4-0 Azzopardi. Azzopardi 2-0 CookieFM
The first completed group within the first week of the competition. Big congratulations to the effort put in by this group. It was a greatly contested group with qualification in doubt until the very last game where Vulrak snatched qualification away from Azzopardi’s grasp. CookieFM and RJPlays who were considered underdogs to qualify from this group. Have done it! Big congrats to you both.
Mikaelinho FM 4-2 Cap GoodSpeed. Cap GoodSpeed 3-3 Mikaelinho FM
Cap GoodSpeed 2-1 Macbearded. Macbearded 7-3 Cap GoodSpeed
KevMC 3-2 Cap GoodSpeed. Cap GoodSpeed 4-3 KevMC
Mikaelinho FM 2-0 Macbearded. Macbearded 0-6 Mikaelinho FM
Macbearded 2-2 KevMC. KevMC 3-2 Macbearded
Group E are waiting on 1 game to be played between Mikaelinho FM and KevMC before its complete. Unfortunately, Macbearded is already out of the running but Cap GoodSpeed still has a chance of qualifying if Mikaelinho can beat KevMC in the 2 games with a goal difference of more than 6 goals. Currently top is Mikaelinho FM on a smashing 10 points.
Bobby G 1-1 SammyDoda. SammyDoda 2-4 Bobby G
Only the 1 set of games been played so far in this group. A long way to go that’s for sure. But SammyDoda will want to bounce back from the defeat and look to improve in the coming games. Bobby G sits top othe group with 4 points. A lot of football to be played.
FM Mariner 4-2 VivalaVida. VivalaVida 4-0 FM Mariner
Beasley 1-2 FM Mariner. FM Mariner 4-1 Beasley
VivalaVida 1-1 Beasley. Beasley 2-4 VivalaVida
Group G has already had 2 front runners so far in FM Mariner and VivalaVida. BigDadyHam has it all to play for. Beasley will need to make sure he takes 6 points from BigDadyHam if he has any chance of qualifying. FM Mariner sits top of the group on 9 points.
KegManPlays 2-3 KylexFM. KylexFM 2-3 KegManPlays
KegManPlays 3-3 Jaycee. Jaycee 0-0 KegManPlays
Parkin 1-0 KegManPlays. KegManPlays 2-2 Parkin
KegManPlays has smashed out his 6 games and has a total of 6 points so far. The rest of the group have it all to play for with points on the board for everyone already. KegManPlays sits top at the moment.
