Anyway, my votes are in, pity that the interest for this cup seems to have waned along the way (including mine). It seemed like a great idea.
It's been enjoyable and the home and away theme has given it a refreshing twist that I wouldn't mind repeating again at some point. I do think, though, ties should last a maximum of a week, interest wanes when it's dragged out too long. Regular tables and results also keep the competitive interest going..I get the impression we've all rather forgotten it is a competition! Lest this sound too critical, I should say I appreciate Ray coming up with the idea in the first place and devoting time to running it as I'm sure he'd rather be doing something else with his time. I'm just making the above points for when we next do a cup.
