Independent panel to decide controversial Krakow Cup appeal

HIGH drama has enveloped the latter stages of the Kenna season after it was decreed an independent panel will decide if the wrong team went through from the group stage.

The Walthamstow Reds manager’s best ever chance of maiden silverware in 13 years of trying are under threat.

An appeal lodged by the Tactical Brambler claims his side took six points in in Group B rather than three.

Tactical Brambler’s appeal: “I don’t think the Krakow cup results were done properly, I got more than 3 points I think, but they had this down and I didn’t get out the groups. I mentioned this previously and someone was going to check, but i don’t think it’s been done. Am I still in the competition. Will I win it?”

Given the Tactical Brambler’s goal difference in the group, his FC Testiculadew side would have progressed at the expense of Walthamstow Reds.

Reds went on to beat the chairman’s side Adam Johnson Fan Club in the last sixteen and then the vice-chairman’s side Young Boys in the quarter finals.

However, if FC Testiculadew had gone through they would have lost to AJFC, with the latter beating Young Boys in the next round.

Reds currently sit six points ahead of Pikey Scum after the first leg of the semi final.

AJFC would be eight points behind Pikey Scum.

Kenna HQ statement: “As the three managers involved are Kenna committee members [Reds, Scum and AJFC], Kenna HQ has decreed each manager will pick one other manager to form an independent panel.”

The impartial panel will decide whether Walthamstow Reds or AJFC continue in the cup.

The three managers made their picks earlier today.

Reds manager: “I would like to nominate the Pirate as my candidate because, y’know, FUN.”

Pikey Scum manager: “Assuming he’s not going to weasel himself into the running, I think the Tactical Brambler should get the prestige of adding ‘member of the Kenna league clerical error adjudication panel (2018)’ to his c.v. as he spotted the error, so he can be my rep.”

AJFC manager: “Thieving Magpies.”

A decision will be published on Friday.

Kenna League tells Pirates manager he must give his players pillage even when they lose

THE only Somali manager in a London-pub based fantasy football league says he ‘reserves the right’ to share the spoils of pillage from the high seas after the Kenna League questioned the arrangement.

The Islington Sports Islam & Leisure manager said he gives the team ‘some booty or the like’ if they win, otherwise they’ve got to plunder their own loot.

The Kenna League has ‘demanded an explanation’ from The Pirates manager since the package isn’t part of the standard player contract.

“Sometimes when we win I’ll give the lads a bottle o’ rum and some gold doubloons. If they lose they’ve got to buy their own rocket-propelled grenades, get on a skiff and put to sea,” said the ISIL manager outside the club’s Spyglass Hill training facility.

“Now I’ve received a letter from Kenna League blazers asking why I don’t share treasure with the crew when we lose.

“We’ve just been knocked out the Krakow Cup and instead of turning my attentions to keeping us out of the relegation zone I’ve now got to kidnap eleven tourists for my players to ransom.”

Scum double hangs in the balance

Kenna League leaders Pikey Scum were held to a draw in their Krakow Cup quarter final first leg by last season’s title winners Thieving Magpies.

The 24-point apiece encounter means Scum will be looking for Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford to rediscover the form that has put the club top of the table for most of season and kept them in with a chance of a second domestic cup for the manager.

Just three weeks ago, Scum were enjoying a 59-point gap over the pack and waltzing past the hapless Sleptember XI in the last sixteen of the cup.

A stellar string of performances from Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy – which will surely dry up the second they both touch down in Russia – has seen second-placed Two Goals One Cup cut the lead to 35 points.

To determine if any manager has thrown away such a cushion in the last seven weeks of the season would take statistical analysis beyond the capacity to tear oneself away from tonight’s Anfield abattoir.

Nevertheless, it feels like it would be an unprecedented circumstance for Pikey Scum to lose the title from here.

The double, however, hangs on this weekend’s cup clash with Thieving Magpies.
