The F A Cup Game

£12.25

PREAMBLE

However much European League and Cup football dominates the minds of soccer enthusiasts world-wide, and the annual fight for the English Premiership demands sports page headlines throughout the season in England, the F.A. Cup has a unique magic that captures the imagination of all and sundry, not just hard-core football supporters, and has done so ever since The Wanderers won the first ever Cup Final in 1872.

Most weekend club footballers will have taken part in one of the preliminary rounds, and even these matches somehow mean more than the rest of the season's fixtures. And when a small non-league team wins a couple of matches they were supposed to lose and are immediately proclaimed 'giant killers' (especially if they manage to reach the 3rd Round proper, when the leading Premiership and Championship teams join them in the hat for the draw) the soccer world holds its collective breath waiting for the draw to be made and that magic home tie against Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool pits the part-timers who spend their working week in a bakery, factory, garage or office against some of the world's highest-paid footballers.

The F.A. Cup often throws the form book out of the window when it come to results, 'shock wins' and 'unexpected defeats' are over-used phrases in the context of the F.A. Cup, such results are just part of the normal running of this greatest knock-out contest in the world of sport. And now you have a game that will enable you to stage your own version of the event - I hesitate to call it a simulation as the contents of this package in no way attempts to 'simulate' any particular F.A. Cup year, but instead provide you with the tools to run your own competition for any year, at any stage of the season,provided you have the full English league tables then current. Expect the unexpected, worry when your favourite Premiership team decides to field a very much under-strength team at home against the latest 'giant-killer', but above all, Enjoy!
