Virgin Cup Winners Can't Post or Reply Privately

We may well have two such examples in waiting if Hull City and St Johnstone can do the business on their clubs big days next month but today saw a virgin winner in the Netherlands as PEC Zwolle surprisingly thumped Ajax 5-1 in the Dutch Cup Final despite going behind after only three minutes!

The game was stopped for 30 minutes due to fireworks being thrown onto the pitch

A remarkable prediction of St Johnstone's glory day:

One year on, and Zwolle got back to the Cup Final again only to lose 2-0 to another team experiencing their first domestic cup success in FC Groningen whose only previous final had been in 1989 when they were thumped 4-1 by PSV.

Another to possibly join the list are Wolfsburg who take on Borussia Dortmund in what will be only their second-ever final, having previously lost 3-0 to Gladbach in 1995

And just like last year, virgin winners in Holland followed by virgin winners in Scotland as ICT scraped past Falkirk.

Another one in Germany as Klopp's final Dortmund game ended in comprehensive defeat to Wolfsburg who came from behind to win 3-1.

And whilst anything but a virgin win, did anyone else see that sensational Lionel Messi goal that set Barcelona on their way to another cup final win against Bilbao? Unreal..........

Virgin Cup Winners in The Netherlands last week as Vitesse Arnhem won their first major honour, defeating AZ Alkmaar 2-0 with two late goals by Ricky van Wolfswinkel. It was Vitesse's fourth KNVB Cup final and their first since 1990.

A major surprise in the Turkish Cup Final in midweek as Akhisarspor beat Fenerbahce 3-2 in the final which was played in Diyarbakir, this after seeing off Galatasaray in the two-legged semi-final.
The club, also known as Akhisar Belediyespor, were only founded in 1970 and reached the top flight in 2012 despite being in the fourth tier as recently as 2008 but with two games left this season, they're still not safe from relegation.
I'm sure we'll get a report on them from greenwood or one of his aliases in the not too distant future.

Another major upset today in Portugal where Aves beat Sporting 2-1 to win the Cup in their first ever final. Safe to say it hasn't gone down well with fans of Sporting coming just a few days after a hooded gang of "fans" attacked the players at the clubs training ground.

Tosno beat Avangard Kursk 2-1 in Volgograd to win the Russian Cup for the first time a fortnight ago. The match took place in front of the biggest Russian Cup Final crowd for a decade according to Wiki. Unfortunately, Tosno will not be competing in next season's Europa League having failed to obtain the necessary licence - a fate that has also befallen Portuguese Cup winners Aves. Worse, Tosno will be playing Level 2 football next season having been relegated.

The 2017-18 competition was remarkable for there being only two all top-flight clashes both of which were resolved by penalty shoot-out after two hours on-field efforts. The second of those was Tosno's semi-final encounter with Spartak in Moscow. Avangard Kursk, from mid-table Level Two, produced two upsets notably a 1-0 after extra time win over CSKA Moscow.

I now see that Tosno have been dissolved. Only formed in 2013 and straight into the regional third level, promoted into the top division last year, immediate relegation but Cup Winners and now dissolved all inside five years. Shades of Gretna ?
