With these predictions, it is now a two horse race and it could be decided on Sunday.

Fawlty Towers is in a strong position, eight points ahead of his rival, joe the driver. Joe needs it to go all the way to the final to stand a chance. A win for Rangers is the key.

A tie is also possible at this point.

Only those who have gone before can know the joy of victory in this prestigeus competition. There is no trophy. For the winner, though, immortality. In a data store buried deep in an ice field in Greenland will lie a message from an internet forum containing the word 'Congratulations'.

Having spent months hovering over a keyboard or touch screen pondering whether to select A or H, our two remaining contestants can do no more.

There can no longer be a tie. So, whose name will be stored next to 'Congratulations'? It has distilled thus; if Rangers win the Scottish Cup, it will be joe the driver, otherwise it will be Fawlty Towers.

Congratulations Fawlty Towers!


Unassailable with one round to go. Joe the driver the only player to give it a go with a punt on Rangers. But no cigar.

Well done Fawlty Towers!

I could have been a contender if Queens Park had not fielded an ineligible player. 

Assuming that QP replicated Inverness' results. I would have chosen them as underdogs as they defeated Livingston and then Kilmarnock. Normally I would have chosen Falkirk as underdogs yesterday, but I had already chosen Darvel as underdogs v Falkirk, thus ruling out Falkirk as previous overdogs.

Therefore I would have picked up the points for QP/Inverness winning yesterday and of course cleaned up as the only person to choose QP/Inverness to wipe out Celtic in the final.

So close to immortality. Anyway, this justifies the underdog policy both morally and practically, and I will keep plugging away until eventual vindication.

Just to echo what Auld Jag said - a big thanks to BowenBoys for all the time and effort he has put in to this.

In the best traditions of Scottish football I now look forward to coming up against someone from an Estonian team's forum and getting soundly thrashed.
