2019 CM9798 Cup – Day 10: Group A and B final group games

It’s the final day of group games! I’ve written 9 of these so far and it feels like the end of an era as I write the 10th. Rarely have I put as much effort into anything else…ever.

Anyway, Group A is so very tight. Any of the five teams can still qualify, which is brilliant news for the neutrals. That’s also the case in Group B, though Boca Seniors are already through so there is only one space to play for. In the words of Des’ree, ooooh I get the shivers.

Group A 4 gamesGroup B 4 games

At the end of the post I will give you details for how you can win the prize bundle we’ve put together. First though, the games.

2019 CM9798 Cup – Day 9: Groups C and D reach their conclusion

Hello! We’ve reached the business end of the group stage. The final games of Groups C and D are about to take place and so far only one of the four spots has been filled for sure.

The equation in Group C is simple. Wins for Real Mathdrid and Sporting Po-Taitos will see them advance at the expense of Exeter Gently. Quickly Kevin United need a handsome win over Real Mathdrid and a slip up from Sporting to advance, whilst Exeter Gently can only sit and watch and hope for dropped points.

Group C 4 games

In Group D, Bells United are already through but they can open the door for Rewind Rovers if they can defeat Criterion Club.

2019 CM9798 Cup – Day 7: Fight for your lives

Hello and welcome to Day 7 of the 2019 CM9798 Cup. Such is the scheduling of this tournament, this is the last group match for two of our teams.
