GC113 World Youth Cup tournament


Recommended Posts

'World Youth cup 2011'

All matches will be played on a Sunday. The HOME team will have to 'arrange friendly' with the opposition to ensure the match is played at the correct venue.

All players must be 21 or under from the date 23rd October 2011. Players who turn 22 AFTER this date will still be eligible for the competition.

SUBSTITUTES can be any age BUT only those eligible for the 21 and under rule can come on.

The competition will be in a 2 legged knockout format with the final also played over 2 legs.

Away goals WILL be used.

In the event of a draw where away goals cannot seperate the teams ( i.e 1-0home win and 0-1 away defeat ), the team who's STARTING 11 average age over the TWO legs is youngest will progress.

As we cannot have 2 legged friendlies that are settled by penalties ,this is the fairest way imo.

So basically I will total up the ages of ALL players who started both games and divide by 22. The progresser will be the team with the lowest average age.

There are no suspensions or injuries in the WYC'11

In the event a team fields an ineligible player that team will forfeit that particular leg 0-6.

FAQ'S

Do I need to register my squad?

No you do not. As long as you have a minimum 11 players 21 or under then that is fine.

If I buy a 21 or under player AFTER the tournament has started can he play in the tournament?

Yes -ANY players 21 or under are eligible. Even those bought weeks after the start of the WYC'11.

What happens if the 'home' side forgets/fails to send me (the 'away' side) the friendly request for the match to go ahead?

The 'home' side will forfeit that leg 0-6. This is to get around the potential loophole of a team winning the first leg 4-0 and then not bothering with the 2nd leg as a normal 0-3 forfeit would still see them advance.

What happens if my opponent leaves the GW or pulls out of the WYC'11

You will be given an automatic 'bye' into the next round.

Is there a prize

Have a bloomin laugh - you can brag loudly if you must ( I will ;-) )

Will you be keeping regular updates of the tournament, top scorers, biggest wins etc

I will be keeping track of it yes, however, if you wish to do your own newspaper reports then that is also great.

Will you be 'reminding' us of our opponents and who we have to arrange the matches with

No - check the newspaper for fixture info.

Regards Will

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

Draw to be made today:

I have given all of the 16 teams a number from 1-16.

I have sent that list to another manager in this competition for verification.

I have also PM'd a seperate manager to arrange me 8 fixtures using the 16 numbers (i.e 4 V 9, 2 V 7 etc etc ).

This is the fairest way that I can see the draw being made.

Make sure you have all read the 'Rules' article and FAQ's article please.

Draw to follow shortly.

Due to the issues with the Bolton and Spartak match being unplayed, the draw will be made by tomorrow night. If I have no dialogue from either manager then the side who draws the winner of the tie will get a 'bye' into the semi-finals.

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

Courtesy of a random pick by Villarreal manager who picked the ties:

8v3, 7v5, 6v1 + 2v4

The Arsenal manager was given a list of the team numbers in advance which were:

dortmund 4

crawley 8

palermo 3

lyon 2

villa 6

arsenal 7

villarreal 1

spartak/bolton 5

So the draw is:

Crawley Town v Palermo

Arsenal v Spartak or Bolton or 'Bye'

Aston Villa v Villarreal

Lyon v Dortmund

1st leg ties to be played on Sunday 6th November.

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

Aston Villa 2-2 Villarreal

Crawley Town 1-4 Palermo

Lyon 3-3 Borussia Dortmund

Arsenal v Bolton/Spartak (N/A)

Due to the change in management at qtr finalists Arsenal there may be a tricky situation for me to fix.

If the new Arsenal manager wants to continue then he is free to do so.

The other option would be to invite the old Arsenal managers Barcelona team into the competition if he wishes.

Thirdly and finally there may be a scenario of a losing qtr finalist getting a 'reprieve'.

I will see what the situation is after the qtr-finals have been completed.

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

Villarreal v Aston Villa (2-2)

Palermo v Crawley Town (4-1)

Borussia Dortmund v Lyon (3-3)

Arsenal/Barcelona v Bolton/Spartak (N/A)

All three 2nd leg matches need to be played by tomorrow.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND V LYON - Fixture still needs to be arranged. Any issues then just let me know via PM.

As I have not received any wish from the new Arsenal manager to be involved in the WYC'11 then BARCELONA look likely to be admitted from the semi-final stage ( the current Barca manager was the previous Arsenal manager ).

The ball numbers for the semi-final draw will be:

1 - Villarreal/Aston Villa

2 - Palermo/Crawley Town

3 - Borussia Dortmund/Lyon

4 - Barcelona (tbc)

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

QTR-FINAL 2ND LEG RESULTS

villarreal 2-1 villa (VILLARREAL win 4-3 on aggregate)

*palermo 4-1 crawley (CRAWLEY TOWN win 7-4 on aggregate)

**dortmund 2-4 lyon (LYON win 7-5 on aggregate)

* 6-0 win awarded to Crawley due to Palermo fielding ineligible player/s

**After the Dortmund manager requested an investigation into the Lyon team on the night.

The investigation found that Lyon player PAPP is indeed 22 BUT he turned 22 AFTER the

WYC'11 had started ( as is allowed in the tournament rules ), thus the Lyon team was

a valid team and the result stands.

Semi Final 1st legs to be played SUNDAY 20TH NOVEMBER

VILLARREAL v BARCELONA

LYON v CRAWLEY TOWN

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

WYC'11 Semi-Final 1st legs

Villarreal 2-7 Barcelona (6-0 win awarded to Villarreal, due to Barcelona manager putting the wife before football - tut tut ;-) )

Crawley 0-2 Lyon

So it looks like a potential Villarreal V Lyon final, but as we have seen on numerous occasions in this seasons WYC, it can all turn around in the 2nd leg.

2nd legs to be played on Sunday 27th.

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

The final of the inaugural World Youth Cup 2011 kicked off at the Stade Gerland last night.

LYON 2-2 VILLARREAL

10 man Lyon held on to draw with Villarreal despite leading twice in the match.

All set-up for a very nice second and final leg in Spain on Sunday.

Awards for this tournament (manager of the tournament, flop of the tournament, etc) will be revealed after the 2nd leg.

VILLARREAL v LYON 2nd leg

SUNDAY 11TH DECEMBER

Re: GC113 World Youth Cup tournament

The 2nd leg of the WYC'11 scheduled for this Sunday has been postponed.

This is due to an unforseen error that prevents a team requesting a 'friendly' with another at the end of the season.

So Villarreal V Lyon (2-2) will be scheduled for the first available 'friendly' date (tuesday OR sunday ) at the beginning of the new season.

VILLARREAL 3-2 Lyon (Villarreal win 5-4 on aggregate).

An 88th minute winner from Iker Muniain broke Lyon hearts as Villarreal emerged victorious in the closest of finals.

The defeat for Lyon was their first of the competition at the worst possible time.

However Ben Junkin has proved that his Villarreal team look to have a very bright future indeed.

Congratulations to Ben for winning this 'prestige' trophy
