    Round 2

    Swansea v Azzuri. Both teams coming off the back of tight wins against so called lesser opponents. Goals in the fixtures last year and I imagine it to be the same again.
    Draw 2-3

    Suns v Cooks Hill. Suns could have won by plenty according to reports. Cooks Hill kept a clean sheet but this is big step up.
    Suns 4-0

    Cardiff v Mayfield. Cardiff have questions to answer after last weeks loss. If they don't win this then back to back dream has turned into into a nightmare after round 2. I expect a big rocket from the coach and a hard fought win.
    Cardiff 2-0

    Dudley v Kotara. Dudley certainly lived up to the preseason hype with a convincing win in round 1. Kotara got edged out 2-1 by Swansea. If Dudley are the benchmark then they will be far to strong.
    Dudley 5-0

    Beresfield v Warner Bay. This is the big game of the weekend. The battle of the predicted bottom 2 has come very early and this could be a 6 pointer. Both teams to try hard and scrap a draw.
    Draw 1-1

    Round 2 Predictions

    Swansea 3-2 Azzurri
    A tight win for Azzurri with many players out last round. Swansea achieved the same result and played some great stuff. Swansea will be too strong for Azzurri on the day though.

    Suns 3-0 Cooks Hill
    Suns have been hugely underwhelming considering the cost of their squad and the calibre of the big name players they carry. This could be the week that they stop disappointing and actually win by the margins we expect.

    Cardiff 2-0 Mayfield
    Not much to say here. Cardiff are just a slightly better Mayfield.

    Dudley 4-0 Kotara
    I was one goal off with my previous prediction so this time I won't undersell my own club. We will comfortably dispatch Kotara. We are too strong all over the pitch and the intensity even at training across all three grades is incredible. Big year ahead.

    Beresfield 1-1 Warners Bay
    Tough game from the two worst teams in the competition. Warners Bay have some pace up top which will cause Beresfield's defence some headaches

    It's $un$, please get it right mate. Stop pretending money isn't growing on trees in Carrington.

    Some tough draws in FFA Cup for the ZPL boys still standing..
    Magic v Kotara
    Weston v Mayfield
    Suns v Adamstown
    West Wallsend v Dudley

    I’d say Dudley will give West Wallsend a red hot crack. A pretty tough task for the remaining teams. But anything can happen - magic of the cup!

    Suns v Adamstown is confirmed Tuesday 4 May, Connolly Park at 7pm.

    Agree Dudley are right in the mix against Westie

    I also like the Suns chance against Adamstown at Connolly park. Lot of NPL experience in their side and Adamstown won’t be used to playing on a ground like Connolly

    Connolly hasn’t looked better than this I don’t think in the whole time we have been here! Haha. Will be a tough game against and young quality Adamstown side. Hopefully we give it a red hot crack.

    Round 2 Predictions

    Swansea 1- 2 Azzurri
    After missing a few players last week I think the blues will put in a stronger performance this week. Wouldn’t be surprised if Swansea wins cause I don’t think Azzurri defense is their strongest area

    Suns 4-1 Cooks Hill
    The Suns at Connolly are always tough. They have to much class and Cooks Hill shouldn’t challenge them to much

    Cardiff 2-0 Mayfield
    Cardiff need to bounce back if they are serious this season. Dudley cut them to shreds in the second half. Mayfield might struggle to score goals this season

    Dudley 2-0 Kotara
    Did day at Dudley this Saturday. Both teams missed last year and have had good cup runs. Same as the Suns, Dudley should have to much class and experience

    Beresfield 2-1 Warners Bay
    Both teams probably performed better than we all expected. Always a tough game at Pasedena. That will give Bero the slightest edge

    Swansea 1 - 2 Azzurri
    I think the boys from Hexham will grind out results this year
    Suns 2 - 1 Cookers
    Suns to finally take all three points from Cooks Hill after coming up short during Covid
    Cardiff 1-0 Mayfield
    The entertainment will come from the sidelines, what's the opposite of Match of the Round?
    Bero 2 - 1 Warners Bay
    Bero were far better than expected and WB will have to adjust to Pasadena
    Dudley 3 - 0 Kotara
    More dominance at home from Dudley

    Love your work Cognito!


    Swansea vs. Hexham Azzuri
    Azzurri to outclass the Swans in the middle of the park but will leak a goal or two.
    Hornets 4-2

    Suns vs. Cooks Hill
    $un$ need to play to be paid $$$. TheyÂ’ll show up this week and put on a clinic.
    $un$ 5-0

    Cardiff vs. Mayfield
    Tigers to prove they have some bite. The Tigers will show that they are the legitimate tigers and the others are just pussy cats. In saying that, the other Tigers are too old and will be kicked out of the jungle.
    Tigers 3-1

    Dudley vs. Kotara
    Huge day for the CharlieÂ’s Run 4 Kids Charity and the game I will go watch! The whole town, flog included, will be out cheering on the Thistles. The Tigers will show up but thatÂ’s about it. Sure to be a great day to raise funds for the great charity!
    Thistles 3-1

    Bero vs. W. Bay
    Relegation battle to be decided Round 2? Going with the Panthers because they suck less than Bero.
    Panthers 2-1

    Good luck fellow punters!

    Ventured down to Evans park for the cat fight. Personal opinion but Cardiff's ground is smaller and shitter than bero's, honestly didn't think it was possible.

    Cardiff just going to have to enjoy the "covid cup", confident they're not winning it this year.

    Great day yesterday at Dudley for the Charlie’s Run 4 Kids Cup. Well done to Dudley and Kotara! The vibe was good and the quality of football surpassed my expectations. A bomb of a free kick won the game late for Dudley in ressies. In firsts, despite being written off by all on here including myself, the Tigers took it to the Thistles and were unlucky not to take the lead into halftime. A penalty in the second half put the Thistles in the lead and an outstanding header from a corner put the game to bed. Dudley proved why they are the favourites and Kotara proved that they can match it with the big boys. It’s going to take a quality team to beat Dudley at home. for All in all, a great day for a great cause!
