MATCHDAY 22
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 0-1 Fligsive FC (TCU)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 2-0 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Draig Goch (LGL) 1-2 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 0-1 Magnaeus City (TCU)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 0-4 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 0-0 Iskara Daii (STB)
Firewood City (OSR) 1-3 Burgess FC (TCU)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 2-3 Communas Cougars (LGL)
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-1 International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Westonbirt City (TCU) 1-1 Telecontarë (STB)
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 2-0 Bob's Towing (LGL)


Tyrellia Titans had managed to go the entire first quarter of the season without a win, and had only managed to notch one victory by the halfway stage - and even that was a narrow win over equally unimpressive relegation-candidates Corinthian Spirits. It was with little fear, than, that fans of AC Izotz Zubia travelled to the Tyrellia for Matchday 22, and thus it was rather a shock when they found themselves on the receiving end of a 2-0 defeat in a surprisingly one-sided game.
Zozi, usually challenging for the title, currently way down in tenth, are not having a vintage season. Osarians Hastmead Diamante, however, are, and the side rattle four goal past a hapless Cazadores to give league leaders 1830 Cathair something to think about. The Catharans themselves are victorious away from home, surviving a late fightback to overcome Draig Goch by two goals to one.
Iskara Daii’s drab 0-0 draw means that the top two pull even further away at the top of the pack.

MATCHDAY 23
Fligsive FC (TCU) 3-0 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 1-1 Draig Goch (LGL)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 1-0 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
1830 Cathair FC (AUD) 6-1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Magnaeus City (TCU) 4-0 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 3-0 Firewood City (OSR)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2-0 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
Burgess FC (TCU) 1-0 Oljestaden IF (AUD)
Communas Cougars (LGL) 1-1 Westonbirt City (TCU)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 1-0 Crystal Mertagne (TCU)
Telecontarë (STB) 0-2 Bob's Towing (LGL)


Cazadores Cathair's shock win over crosstown rivals 1830 Cathair had been the first victory for Caza in the derby for years, and Andro Mendez's opening goal in the fifth minute leads some to believe they may well do it again. Espiridon Caszely, however, has other ideas, and levels the scoring before half-time. The second half sees the Cazadores capitulate spectacularly as first Lidgley, then Caszely again, then Peter Masters put 1830 4-1 up, with Aaron Aiza and Cyrus Damhan completing a 6-1 rout.

The win puts the onus on Hastmead to win out in their match with Firewood City, which they do via a 3-0 scoreline. Iskara Daii avoid falling further off the pace with a 2-0 win over Itzaovalle while, elsewhere, Magnaeus City thrash a struggling Foxchester Raiders by four goals to nil.

MATCHDAY 24
Draig Goch (LGL) 1-3 Fligsive FC (TCU)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 1-1 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 3-0 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 1-4 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Firewood City (OSR) 0-0 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 0-0 Magnaeus City (TCU)
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 3-4 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Westonbirt City (TCU) 1-2 Iskara Daii (STB)
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 1-0 Burgess FC (TCU)
Bob's Towing (LGL) 1-2 Communas Cougars (LGL)
Telecontarë (STB) 1-0 International of Tyrellia (LGL)


Firewood city suffered at the hands of their compatriots Hastmead Diamante last week, and few people expect them to dent 1830 Cathair's title ambitions, but dent them they do by holding the league leaders to a 0-0 draw, allowing Hastmead to take control of the title race with a win over Oljestaden IF. It's a win they have to earn, as Oljestaden twice lead through Durder Celetholtinu's goalscoring prowess and only take a narrow 4-3 win via a last-minute goal by Nicola Costello.

At the bottom, Titans scrape another point to add to their meagre tally by grabbing a draw wih Lesko Pavillion, though neither Draig Goch nor Foxchester Raiders can make any headway, losing 1-3 and 1-4 respectively to former LigAnaia champions Fligsive FC and AC Izotz Zubia.

MATCHDAY 25
Fligsive FC (TCU) 1-0 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Draig Goch (LGL) 0-0 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 1-1 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 1-2 Firewood City (OSR)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 2-1 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
1830 Cathair FC (AUD) 2-1 Oljestaden IF (AUD)
Magnaeus City (TCU) 0-1 Westonbirt City (TCU)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 0-0 Crystal Mertagne (TCU)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2-1 Bob's Towing (LGL)
Burgess FC (TCU) 1-1 Telecontarë (STB)
Communas Cougars (LGL) 2-0 International of Tyrellia (LGL)


Iskara Daii are having a vintage season, and they keep up their winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Bob's Towing. They've now picked up nine points in three games, while Cathair and Hastmead have only managed seven - the latter dropping two points at home to Crystal Mertagne via a 0-0 draw.

AC Izotz Zubia, by contrast, are struggling to keep the pace in the middle of the table, let alone the top, though nevertheless the men in salmon and silver win out in the Tzierra derby with a morale-boosting 2-1 victory over mountain rivals KT Itzalovalle.

Fligsive, the traditional powerhouse of Calanian football, have now won four of their last four games and, despite Iskara Daii's form, are level with the Starblaydis in the league.



MATCHDAY 26
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 0-1 Fligsive FC (TCU)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 0-1 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Firewood City (OSR) 3-1 Draig Goch (LGL)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 2-0 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-1 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Westonbirt City (TCU) 2-2 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 1-1 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)
Bob's Towing (LGL) 2-6 Magnaeus City (TCU)
Telecontarë (STB) 1-0 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 1-1 Iskara Daii (STB)
Communas Cougars (LGL) 0-2 Burgess FC (TCU)



There are bananaskins abound in the top half of the table as Hastmead, now down in second place, visit Telecontare and go down 1-0 to the elves, while neither Isakra Daii nor AC Izotz Zubia can defeat southern opposition, the former drawing with Legalites Inter Tyrellia while the latter can only tie with Crystal Mertagne.

The opportunity is there for the other big guns to make ground, and while the Syndicatian 'big three' of Fligsive, Burgess and Magnaeus all win - the latter in a 6-2 away victory - Zozi again slip up, failing to beat struggling Westonbirt City.


MATCHDAY 27
Fligsive FC (TCU) 1-0 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 0-3 Firewood City (OSR)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 0-4 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
Draig Goch (LGL) 1-1 Oljestaden IF (AUD)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 1-1 Westonbirt City (TCU)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 1-1 Crystal Mertagne (TCU)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 2-0 Bob's Towing (LGL)
1830 Cathair FC (AUD) 1-0 Telecontarë (STB)
Magnaeus City (TCU) 5-1 International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 3-0 Communas Cougars (LGL)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2-1 Burgess FC (TCU)


Magnaeus City make it eleven goals in two games as Legalites Inter Tyrellia travel to the shadow of the black peak and are given a 5-1 hiding. Fellow Legalites Comunas Cougars are just as unfortunate, going down 3-0 to Hastmead who's win fails to catapult them above 1730 Cathair who sneak past a spirited Telecontare team by a goal to nil. Iskara Daii keep pace via an impressive 2-1 win over Burgess in Sunday's televised game. Fligsive FC beat Foxchester to make it six wins out of six.

At the bottom, Tyrellia Titans continue to pick up the odd point as they draw with Westonbirt.

MATCHDAY 28
Firewood City (OSR) 2-3 Fligsive FC (TCU)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 1-0 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-0 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Westonbirt City (TCU) 1-1 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 3-1 Draig Goch (LGL)
Bob's Towing (LGL) 2-1 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Telecontarë (STB) 4-0 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 0-3 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Communas Cougars (LGL) 1-2 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)
Burgess FC (TCU) 2-2 Magnaeus City (TCU)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2-1 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)


Match of the weekend on Matchday 28 is undoubtedly the clash between second-placed Hastmead Diamante and third-placed Iskara Daii. With 1830 Cathair having already overcome Comunas Cougars in an end-to-end game on Saturday morning, the Starblaydis and Osarians battle to keep pace with the league leaders. Marquinhos Carnavalense puts the Daii in the lead, Elaine Ashdown replies via a second-half header but its the Starblaydis that take the spoils, Jan Macik scoring an injury-time winner to further close the gap between themselves and the top two. Fligsive make it seven from seven…

MATCHDAY 29
Fligsive FC (TCU) 1-0 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
Firewood City (OSR) 1-2 Oljestaden IF (AUD)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 1-0 Westonbirt City (TCU)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 0-2 Crystal Mertagne (TCU)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 0-0 Bob's Towing (LGL)
Draig Goch (LGL) 2-0 Telecontarë (STB)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 0-3 International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 0-4 Communas Cougars (LGL)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 0-0 Burgess FC (TCU)
1830 Cathair FC (AUD) 0-2 Iskara Daii (STB)
Magnaeus City (TCU) 1-1 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)


Matchday 29 sees Iskara Daii take their third win in a row in their third six-pointer in a row, and it's league-leaders Cathair who fall victim to the resurgent Daii, losing 2-0 at home in an encounter that suggests IDFC may well be the best team in the league at the moment.

Fligsive, of course, probably have something to say about that, especially after going eight-for-eight with victory over KT Itzalovalle.

Elsewhere, Magnaeus vs Hastmead is another big game, and again Hastmead fail to truly impress as a supposed challenger for the league title, as Magnaeus equalise early to cancel out Giorgia Caruso's opener and hold on to draw without the diamonds looking too much like scoring.

The other marquee tie is Burgess's trip to Zozi, but neither team is having an easy time of it and the lack of form is telling as the match finishes goal-less.


MATCHDAY 30
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-2 Fligsive FC (TCU)
Westonbirt City (TCU) 1-0 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 3-1 Firewood City (OSR)
Bob's Towing (LGL) 0-1 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Telecontarë (STB) 2-2 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 2-1 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Communas Cougars (LGL) 2-2 Draig Goch (LGL)
Burgess FC (TCU) 2-1 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2-0 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 0-1 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Magnaeus City (TCU) 3-2 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)


Iskara Daii win, Fligsive go nine-for-nine, Hastmead and Cathair both lose, and the title chase is starting to open up properly after having previously looked like a two-horse-race.

MATCHDAY 31
Fligsive FC (TCU) 1-0 Westonbirt City (TCU)
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-3 Crystal Mertagne (TCU)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 3-3 Bob's Towing (LGL)
Firewood City (OSR) 0-2 Telecontarë (STB)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 0-1 International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 1-2 Communas Cougars (LGL)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 1-3 Burgess FC (TCU)
Draig Goch (LGL) 3-1 Iskara Daii (STB)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 3-3 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 0-0 Magnaeus City (TCU)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 1-1 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)


It's ten out of ten for Fligsive, who relegate Hastmead down to third place for the first time since christmas as the Osarians travel to lowly Tyrellia Titans and, in a madcap game, go 3-1 down with ten minutes to go before clawing their way back to a draw, with Louis Porter and Fer Ronco saving the Osarians' blushes.

In Audioslavia, Cathair travel to Zozi in the biggest of Audioslavia's heavyweight clashes, and while Zozi haven't shone as bright as the capital club as of late, they do manage to hold the champions to a one-all draw.

MATCHDAY 32
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 1-2 Fligsive FC (TCU)
Bob's Towing (LGL) 0-3 Westonbirt City (TCU)
Telecontarë (STB) 1-2 Oljestaden IF (AUD)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 1-0 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
Communas Cougars (LGL) 2-2 Firewood City (OSR)
Burgess FC (TCU) 2-0 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2-1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 5-1 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Magnaeus City (TCU) 2-0 Draig Goch (LGL)
1830 Cathair FC (AUD) 4-1 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 1-1 Corinthian Spirits (STB)


It's eleven wins from eleven games for Fligsive as they canter to a two-one win over Crystal Mertagne. Cathair beat Tyrellia Titans 4-1 to keep their noses ahead, while Hastmead put five past Lesko Pavillion to ensure they don't lose sight of the top two.

Isara Daii continue their winning ways by overcoming Cazadores Cathair, and though Magnaeus City do win, the gap between themselves in fifth and the Daii in fourth is a whole nine points. Zozi and Comunas Cougars are both having disappointing seasons thus far, while Crystal Mertagne, in eighth, are enjoying a better than average year.

The same can't quite be said about Burgess FC. Burgess, never yet champions, are a team who expect to be at least fighting for the CL places come April, and to be stuck down in tenth place with ten games to go - and with a whole twenty points between themselves and the CL places - is beyond unacceptable for the Syndicatian powerhouses.

At the bottom of the LigAnaia, Tyrellia Titans are still rooted to the foot of the table, but a succession of draws have at least ensured they have yet to be cut adrift. Foxchester, despite having as many wins as seventeenth-placed Oljestaden, are second-bottom and struggling, while the trio of Draig Goch, Lesko Pavillion and Corinthian Spirits are barely keeping their heads above water.

Cazadores Cathair are in sixteenth place. But then Cazadores are always in sixteenth place.

Meanwhile, in LigAnaia Two - It's business as usual as a dominant Tout-Puissant Hasiera continue to top the table, with many different teams scrambling behind to catch up. The battle for third at this point could go any of three ways from here, but FC Southern Ninestar's recent spate of wins has pushed them into a position where they might still have a shot at promotion. The middle of the table is an even closer affair, with just three points separating 11th and 16th. A single win is all it could take to propel any team out of the fear of relegation, but equally, a loss could push any of them straight back down again. Bottom tablers Athletico Gonzales and Sayyaf could possible bring themselves back from the brink, and maybe even push Capital Mertian team Lehen Neorudo back down to LigAnaia Three...

MATCHDAY 33
Fligsive FC (TCU) 2-1 Bob's Towing (LGL)
Crystal Mertagne (TCU) 1-1 Telecontarë (STB)
Westonbirt City (TCU) 1-0 International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-2 Communas Cougars (LGL)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 1-5 Burgess FC (TCU)
Firewood City (OSR) 1-1 Iskara Daii (STB)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 0-1 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 0-4 Magnaeus City (TCU)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 1-3 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)
Draig Goch (LGL) 1-0 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 0-0 Corinthian Spirits (STB)


Fligsive’s remarkable run continues, as they keep the pressure on Cathair with a narrow win over Bob’s Towing. Hastmead recover from their slip-up to steal a win at Foxchester and stay close to the top two. Daii slip up dropping two points in Firewood, but they’re still within a couple of games of the top. Calanian sides Burgess and Magnaeus both get big wins, but given their wildly different fortunes this season, the results hold very different meanings. For Magnaeus, it keeps them in with a vague shot at a Champions Cup spot, and almost a shoe-in for a Globe Cup berth. For Burgess, it merely reminds their fans that all is not lost in their quest for UICA football next season.

Zozi suffer again, this time at the hands (or feet, whatever) of Draig Goch, who are hardly lighting up the league. Tyrellia Titan’s mastery of the draw is still going strong, too, as they hold Corinthian Spirits to a goalless encounter. Still propping up the league, but still in with a shot of vaulting themselves clear of the drop zone.

MATCHDAY 34
Telecontarë (STB) 3-0 Fligsive FC (TCU)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 3-1 Bob's Towing (LGL)

AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 0-1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 2-1 Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 1-0 Draig Goch (LGL)


Telecontarë of Starblaydia are the ones to finally put an end to Fligsive’s winning streak - after twelve games of victory, the Calanian team fail to get to the next milestone following a three-nil defeat away from home. Telecontarë are happy to pick up the points, and also the media buzz that comes from toppling such a seemingly unstoppable team. The elf-funded club plays it down, though, stating that they’d been training to put a stop to Fligsive for weeks prior to the match.

Two big Legalite teams go face-to-face at Tyrellia, with International picking up a solid win over Bob’s Towing to push them just past Towing in the league tables. Fans are treated to a surprisingly foggy game, in which visibility is poor. This doesn’t stop International from pulling out all of the stops, however.

Elsewhere, Burgess struggle to tie with a on point Westonbirt City, who manage to bring the Eastport club to a tie at Sunrise park. Firewood City also play well away at the Bird Cage, scoring a great goal just before the half-time mark to secure a win.

Cazadores Cathair also pull of a surprise win against Zozi by a single goal, which delights fans who made the trek across the country to see the game. Zozi try to recover towards the end of the second half, but an oddly shaky defence and an equally shaky attack prevents them from scoring at all this weekend.

MATCHDAY 35

Telecontarë continue proving their worth against heavyweight teams from other COCANEFA nations, and take three points from Communas Cougars at home. Legalite teams aren’t having a terrible weekend, however, as just hours before International upset Fligsive at the Flynn arena.

Hastmead pick up their fourth win in just as many games, this time against Westonbirt City. They make it looks easy, but only win it by a single goal, as there aren’t too many opportunities to take shots at goal during the match.

Zozi manage to get over their loss by beating back Firewood City while on the road, proving once again to fans why they’re one of the best teams in the Lig, and by extension, the multiverse.

Syndicatians have a hollow victory this weekend, with Lesko Pavillion managing to come back from a tricky equalised situation against Draig Goch at the Big Top.

Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 4-0 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)


Having taken the lead again last week, Hastmead make a statement with a crushing win over Bob’s Towing. Elsewhere closest rivals Cathair drop two points at home to Westonbirt City, and Communas Cougars hold off Fligsive. The Osarian side are now three points clear, entering the home straight.

Bafflingly, Tyrellia Titans maintain the trend of getting draw after draw. Time is running out for them, though perhaps they’ll set a Lig record for number of draws in a season. Consolation, maybe?

MATCHDAY 37

Foxchester Raiders (STB) 0-1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)


Oh dear, oh dear. Are Hastmead exhibiting that Osarian tendency to choke (yes, yes we know they’ve won stuff now, but it’s still funny)..? A crushing defeat in Tyrellia sees them surrender their entire three point lead in one day, as Cathair visit Bob’s Towing and come home with three points. Behind them, Fligsive pick up a convincing win over Burgess, perhaps signalling another run of wins is about to begin. Daii slip a little behind after dropping points to Communas Cougars -- seriously, what is up with those guys? -- and Magnaeus are still creeping closer and closer to that fourth Champions’ Cup berth as they overcome a stern test at Telecontare.

There’s an old saying about bums making certain high-pitched sounds around this time of the season, isn’t there?

MATCHDAY 38
Iskara Daii (STB) 4-1 Fligsive FC (TCU)

Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 1-1 KT Itzallovalle (AUD)
Foxchester Raiders (STB) 1-0 Firewood City (OSR)


And high-pitched sounds they must be making right now for the leading pack. A second defeat in as many weeks for Hastmead is bringing back some of the old favourite jokes in the Osarian press -- they’ve seen this from the Fourgian side many times before, after all -- but Cathair failed to capitalise, finding themselves on the wrong end of a three-goal defeat to Inter, much like Hastmead last week. Strange how that works, isn’t it?

Elsewhere, Daii comprehensively beat Fligsive, putting paid to those rumours of another winning streak starting… the top four are now separated by just three points, with three games to go. We’d say you couldn’t write this but that might be a slightly insulting statement in the eyes of various screenwriters…

MATCHDAY 39
Fligsive FC (TCU) 1-1 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)

Oljestaden IF (AUD) 1-1 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
KT Itzallovalle (AUD) 2-1 Firewood City (OSR)


Now this is getting silly. Are Hastmead and Cathair both trying to lose the title? Cathair blew a chance to put daylight between themselves and Hastmead yet again, falling to another convincing defeat, this time to Burgess. Diamante’s thrilling, though low-scoring, draw at Fligsive puts them back on top, but keeps the top four within four points of each other. Magnaeus are still lurking, too, earning a point against Daii to stay within touching distance of fourth place… just about.

Under different circumstances, one might have suggested that Saturday evening’s clash in Cathair (the evening game, not the afternoon one with Cazadores) was the title decider. Hastmead certainly will be hoping it is, after they performed a smash-and-grab, holding firm for eighty-three minutes, before Elliot Francis netted a late, eventual winner on the break.

With Daii only managing a draw at Zozi, and Magnaeus getting one over on Fligsive… it may well be the decide, in fact. But given the dramatic twists in this season’s narrative so far, it probably wouldn’t be wise to bet on it. The resul does put Hastmead three points clear, though, with Cathair a point further back. Magnaeus’ win over Fligsive puts them just two points away from that fourth Champions Cup berth that few foresaw them clawing their way back into a month or so back.

Fligsive’s late equaliser against Cathair ensures that there will be a new champion this season, with Iskara Daii trouncing Tyrellia Titans to maintain the pressure on league leading Hastmead, who huffed and puffed their way to a narrow one-nil win over Corinthian Spirits. Hastmead need only avoid defeat on the final day of the season to be crowned champions over Iskara Daii, but with the Osarians having claimed just one win (and four points) in their last four games, the Starblaydis will fancy their chances.

Magnaeus slip up and miss out on the chance to leapfrog Fligsive, as they fall at home to Zozi, after leading twice. However, with Fligsive travelling to face Zozi next week, and Magnaeus travelling to face the lesser of the two Tyrellia clubs, they still have a chance, especially given their vastly superior goal difference.

Given that Hastmead needed only to avoid defeat, and were travelling to Draig Goch, a team which had spent almost the entire season near the foot of the table, you’d have expected the Fourgian side to emerge as champions. However, when Iskara Daii took an early lead at Lesko Pavillion, and Draig Goch had an early opener chalked off for a controversial offside, chatter started. It would require a dramatic swing in goal difference, but with Daii pressing forward and peppering the Pavillion goal, while Hastmead huffed and puffed… hopes began to raise.

Elsewhere, Magnaeus faced Tyrellia Titans in an important game for both sides. For Magnaeus, a win might just be enough to vault them into the top four, and thus, Champions Cup football -- depending on Fligsive’s result at Zozi -- while Tyrellia were potentially facing the drop if they didn’t upset the odds and get the win. Magnaeus took the lead, predictably, while Fligsive were still level at Zozi. They needed Zozi to get the win for all the pieces to fall into place, though. Titans rallied, and went into the break unlucky not to have equalised.

Back in Pavillion, Daii were still knocking on the door -- figuratively, it might be more akin to wildly swinging a sledgehammer at it, actually -- but the score was still only one-nil. Hastmead were yet to break the deadlock away to Draig Goch, and the home team had a legitimate penalty claim denied, inviting the ire of the home support. Things were getting harder for the Diamonds.

The second half started. And everything changed.

Magnaeus slipped up, and Tyrellia Titans grabbed an equaliser within five minutes of the restart. Their fans could believe again. They might manage to pull this off after all. Draig Goch were still level against Hastmead, so they’d be going down instead if the scores stayed as they were. Their Calanian opposition were fuming, though. Zozi still hadn’t gone ahead against Fligsive, but it wouldn’t matter if Titans won this game. At around the same time, Daii netted a second, that twelve goal swing was still a way off, but there were forty minutes to go, and Draig Goch had looked more likely to score in their match so far.

When Zozi took the lead against Fligsive on the hour mark, Magnaeus fans cheered their appreciation, trying to will the ball into the net for their team.

On seventy-three minutes, Hastmead finally broke the deadlock against Draig Goch, putting themselves firmly in control of their own destiny as potential champions. The news filtered through to Tyrellia, where the Titans rallied. With Draig Goch losing, their chances of staying up increased dramatically.

Zozi were holding on to their lead over Fligsive, and Magnaeus were getting desperate for the winning goal in Tyrellia. On an attack, they overcommitted, and were caught, fatally, on the break. Titans lead, and will remain in the LigAnaia One if scores stay as they are. With less than ten minutes to go, Magnaeus are about to miss out on Champions Cup football and Iskara Daii -- despite their dominant performance; not necessarily reflected in the scoreline -- will have been foiled in their attempt to claim the LigAnaia championship in the dying moments of the season by a late goal from Hastmead’s Tanya Bottlegreen.

When the final whistle blew shortly after, the result came through...

AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 1-0 Fligsive FC (TCU)
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 0-2 1830 Cathair FC (AUD)
Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 2-1 Magnaeus City (TCU)

Leaving the final table looking like so

Cheers rang through the Caerangelion, from the travelling Hastmead fans, as the final whistle blew and they were confirmed LigAnaia Champions. The home side despondent, knowing they would be playing in LigAnaia Two next season.

The Coliseum in Tyrellia shook with the roar of the home support, upon learning that -- partly thanks to the new champions -- they would be staying up. Magnaeus fans and players alike struggled to understand how they’d failed to capitalise on the opportunity for Champions Cup football. The Starblaydis at the Big Top in Pavillion, having seen their team come so close, but ultimately fall short, applauded a valiant effort from their team.


In LigAnaia Two, Tout-Puissant Hasiera manage to easily top the league, securing a SBCC place by 15 points. FC Southern Ninestar continued the chase right to the very end, but it seems that Tout-Puissant were unstoppable in their final matchdays. Batal also put on a surprisingly strong performance, just just missed out on a promotion spot by just three points. New Mertian Outfit Kurtz Herritik finished in a decent 10th place, not bad for a first-time team, beating out several teams they weren't expected to, such as KT Moreazerua and Utica United. Down towards the bottom of the table, Capital teams Shamrock Cathair and Lehen Neorudo struggle to keep afloat, and will be relegated back down to LigAnaia Three for the next season.

LigAnaia: Season Eight

Postby COCANEFA » Sat Apr 25, 2015 2:24 pm

LigAnaia
Season Eight

Image

First there were two. Back in the first season, six amateur Audioslavian football sides turned professional in order to join a newly-formed league with the best eight pro-sides The Calanian Union had to offer. For two seasons, the Anaia 'originals' went head to head. Audioslavian clubs would take the first two LigAnaia titles, first through AC Izotz Zubia, then through capital club 1830 Cathair.

Season three would see Starblaydi clubs enter the fray. The LigAnaia would expand to a twenty team top division as the likes of Foxchester Raiders, Telecontare and the legendary Iskara Daii fought for the title, though none could stop stop Calanion powerhouses Fligsive FC from taking home their first title. A second league, the LigAnaia Two, would be added this season, with 20 teams fighting it out for entry into the top flight.

Season four would see yet another expansion, this time with teams from Legalese joining their north-eastern neighbours in a twenty-four team league. Comunas Cougars would mount the strongest charge of the Legalites, but once again the title would find itself on Audioslavian soil as 1830 Cathair made it two championships in three seasons.

Those first three seasons saw just two sides from the LigAnaia enter the Champions Cup, with a further six in the Globe Cup, but impressive displays against the best the world had to offer in UICA competition added a third slot for season four, while season five saw four teams qualify for UICA competition. A reduced league of twenty-two teams took part, albiet with another association taking part - Osarius - with its heavyweights Hastmead Diamante qualifying for the Champions Cup in their first attempt. The title, however, would again go to the Audioslavian contingent, with AC Izotz Zubia capturing their second title.

Season five also saw the addition of two further leagues at a third tier of the pyramid - LigAnaia 3: Calania and LigAnaia 3: North and Islands, with Calanion, Legalite and Ibexian teams in the former and Audioslavian, Osarian, Starblaydi and Perlasilangani teams in the latter. That structure remained in season six. Once again, 1830 Cathair won the title.

Hastmead Diamante would become the first Osarian champions in season seven, last season, beating Iskara Daii of Starblaydia to the title. The season also saw impressive performances in UICA competition - so much so that for season eight, the league has a whole six Champions Cup qualifiers, with Audioslavia now 7th in the UICA rankings and The Calanian Union a dizzy third.

Season eight is the final season before a further expansion, with Quebecois clubs earmarked to join the LigAnaia pyramid for season nine.

Since the merge with LigAnaia, Diamante have gone on to establish themselves as Osarius’ best club side, though success in the multinational system has not been forthcoming. In an attempt to fix this, manager Benni Watson has bolstered his side’s attacking options. The acquisition of Nepharim Tanya Bottlegreen and Pasargan Jorit van Kruistum will significantly increase the quality of Hastmead’s wing play. Watson will certainly be hoping they can help create more chances for Giorgia Caruso -- once touted as a long-term heir to Ezio Grassi -- and her new backup, the young Jeckish forward Elliott Francis, plucked from relative obscurity to now feature in arguably one of the strongest sides in the multiverse.

Defensively, Hastmead still show some notable weaknesses, though the addition of Semarland’s Matjas Nordland is cause for optimism in that area. Watson has been quoted as stating that his side needs to be more efficient with possession in midfield, and the loss of Yasmin Velasquez would have been a major setback if not for the signing of Elaine Ashdown. With the Nepharim sitting alongside Nicola Costello in the Diamante midfield, the Fourgian club actually look stronger than they did last year.

The Daii are legendary. The oldest and most prestigious of Starblaydia’s domestic clubs, the former club of Simeone di Bradini, the x-time Starblaydi champions. The modern team don’t quite stand as tall as their shadow, but Iskara Daii have yet to finish lower than eighth in the LigAnaia - no mean feat considering the sheer amount of competition.

Iskara Daii’s season seven was their best since their transformation from Liga Starblaydia legends to LigAnaia heavyweights. The side finished second, pulling away from third-placed 1830 Cathair at the death, and qualified for the Champions Cup for the second time in five seasons. The Daii have not fared too well in UICA competition thus far, but the current side seems well placed to mount a challenge.

Former three-time champions 1830 Cathair hail from the well-to-do Grand Forum sector of Cathair. The fashionable capital club have a rich history, being one of the first football clubs in all of Audioslavia, but their modern incarnation has seen them portrayed somewhat as spoiled rich kids, throwing money at some of the league’s smaller clubs in order to hoover up local talent. Cathair’s local rivals are traditionally the west-Cathair side Shamrock Cathair, but a decline in fortunes for the men in green, and the resurgence of previously unfashionable Cazadores Cathair, from the eastern docklands area of the city, has seen the Caza-Catha derby rise to infamy as one of the most fierce in Atlantian Oceania,

RJ Styrn leads the line alongside teenage sensation Epiridon Caszely. The midfield of Kinlasson, Damhan and living-legend Wilfred Lidgley are joined by a huge name in Cenian Jaime Del Olmo, who should force Earent’s Dandra Harris down to the sub’s bench. In defence, Laszlo Passcroft should retain his spot at right-back, while the side should continue with the partnership of Alec Koskinen and Andrea Molovi in the centre. Felixian goalkeeper Kiki Nuremberg - almost faultless last season - has been given the vice-captaincy for the current season.

Fligsive are, so far, the only Calanion side to have won the LigAnaia, having done so in season three. The side have come on leaps and bounds in UICA competition, too, currently sitting a dizzying fifteenth in the UICA rankings. The side’s league form, however, has dropped off in recent years. The side had a run of four finishes in the top two at one point - usually coming up through the table with a late charge - but a sixth-placed finish in season six was nothing short of disaster.

Fligsive are, once again, in the Champions Cup this season. It remains to be seen how strong the team will be this year.

Magnaeus are a mystery. Why? Well, for example, the side have zero silverware. No league titles, no cups, not even a minor trophy/. They have tended to outperform rivals Burgess FC since the LigAnaia began, but have never truly looked like potential champions.

Magnaeus are, however, very good when it comes to foreign opposition, and the side have always been one of the highest-ranked of the LigAnaia’s UICA competitors.

Football in Audioslavia has two main hotbeds - Cathair and the mountainous Tzierra region, and if 1830 are the kings of Cathair, there’s no doubt which team have claimed the title of ‘King of the Mountains’ in recent years. ‘Zozi’, usually resplendent in their trademark ‘silver and salmon’’ (grey and pink to you and me) hoops, are two-time LigAnaia champions. 1830 Cathair are the club’s biggest rivals, but Zozites differ on who their local rivals are, as there are a slew of local clubs to choose from. KT Ferrmendiak, KT Moreazerua and KT Itzalovalle are the biggest teams from the region, but its the latter who have been closest to Zozi in recent years.

The team itself are strong, if not quite as strong on paper as the Catharan champions. Goalkeeper Abraham Terrazas has proved himself a calm head between the sticks in recent years, despite his youth. That calmness could be down to the strength of the defence, lead by club captain Patrick Courtois, talented Apoxian Susan Endicott and local hero Orson Faulkner, he of the championship-winning goal in season five. A four-man midfield is operated mainly by Etarmara Kukkiia, the Turorian international, who ensures a constant supply is given to Jaurti Buruz and Nazeau Roga up front. The most interesting pre-season addition has to be Sterling Rose. The Euran is a prodigious talent.

Comunas Cougars exploded onto the scene in season four - the freshmen year for Legalite clubs in the LigAnaia - and finished in third place, qualifying for the Champions Cup and being unlucky not to place higher. The next season, however, saw a rapid fall from grace. Cougars’ form deteriorated rapidly at the start of the year and the side never really clawed their way back, finishing down in tenth place - only just enough for a Globe Cup place. Previous seasons have seen some rebuilding, but the side are usually loathe to spend money in the transfer window and one feels that, without an influx of money and players, the Legalite powerhouses may well struggle again to break the top five again.

Burgess FC’s runners-up place in the inaugural LigAnaia season was supposed to be a statement of intent, according to their fans. To be fair, it more or less was: they haven’t won the league in any other season either. The men in sky-blue and yellow have bounced around the top ten in recent seasons, never finishing lower than eighth, or higher than fifth, or in any other position, actually, but for a side with aspirations of league and UICA silverware, merely ‘competing’ isn’t enough. For Burgess, qualification for the Champions Cup is their aim once again - one they’ve missed every season bar season one.

The good news for Burgess, of course is the high placement of the Calanian Union football association in the UICA rankings. TCU clubs have a minimum of three clubs heading towards the CC next season. Burgess may be aiming high, but even missing out on a top-five finish won’t hurt the team - as long as they can stay above the likes of Crystal Mertagne and Westonbirt City.

Crystal Mertagne are a team that nowadays have little to do with the nation that shares their name. While an amazing, table topping finish isn’t exactly on the cards for the northern Syndicatian team, Crystal Mertagne are looking to avoid both a lawsuit with the new nation and relegation from the top flight. They may not look like the men to do it, but sometimes the underdogs can end up surprising us all.

International of Tyrellia are one of the powerhouses of Legalite football, but have thus far failed to truly impress in the LigAnaia. Fans of the club have lowered their expectations in recent years, content with Globe Cup qualification and a decent showing in UICA’s secondary competition. Their success may depend on how the side continue to cope without Cyrus Damhan, the Legalite legend who left for 1830 Cathair two seasons ago,

Starblaydia has a very large immigrant population, and each and every one of them would be up in arms if we didn’t include Telecontare in the list of contenders. The Tabeck outfit are former winners of the Liga Calania - one of the LigAnaia’s spiritual ancestors - and the richness of their support is matched only by that of their bank accounts, but the team endured a torrid first two seasons in the LigAnaia, almost being relegated after their first season and falling away drastically in the second half of season four. There are some who suggest the side are a shadow of their former glories, but as any of the team’s elven contingent (ie pretty much all of them) will tell you, it takes more than a little rain to dull elvish steel.

Westonbirt City’s best LigAnaia season so far was season three, whereby they bit their collective thumbs at the established order and fought their way to third place. The next season they went one better, and managed to claw their way even past the group stages of the Globe Cup. That performance, however, came at the cost of league form, and the green-clad side from western Syndicatia finished well out of the Globe Cup places. The side have flirted with relegation in recent years, but an ever-changing first-eleven may have a better chance at competing this year.

KT Itzalovalle are perhaps Audioslavia’s third best team, having been one of the few ever-presents in the top division and with a string of Globe Cup qualifications under their belt. The side have occasionally struggled in recent seasons, not least due to the erratic form of $12m flop Anderson Sandro up front. 'Itzi' are, without a doubt, the second club in the Tzierra region behind Zozi.

Bob’s Towing are perhaps the most bizarrely named of the LigAnaia’s Legalite representatives, but the side are one with the most interesting story behind them. Back in Legal Year 258 (2135 for the Audioslavians reading), the outfit sprung up as a youth team, when the Darland brothers, Jimmy and Vincent, convinced their father, Robert, to have his service station sponsor their youth team. As such, the name emblazoned on their shirt read Bob’s Towing. Jimmy turned out to be good enough to keep his friends in the game, as the club moved up from recreational youth play, to local pub leagues, to becoming a semi-professional force, enough to earn an invite into the national championship program, as well as full sponsorship from Gamma Apparel, also based in Plainsview. Despite winning the first National Championship, the fortunes of Towing have sagged of late, with the Darlands now relegated to the front office. It has been up to Casnar Golt to turn their fortunes around, before their story remains just an old memory.

Firewood City will most likely by focusing heavily on wing play, due to the Fourgian club’s perpetual abundance of talented wingers and fullbacks. The central column of the team is by no means weak, but have in recent history found it difficult to link attack and defence, which could be a major problem when facing the stronger sides in the league.

Firewood, it has to be said, have tended to struggle just generally in recent years. They are a big club have a rich history, but have thus far failed to set the LigAnaia alight. Will this season be different? Well the side have started a rebuilding process, but it’ll be a largely identical first eleven that take the field this season.

In Cathair, the second club right now is Cazadores Cathair, poor relations of 1830 Cathair and a team who have a habit of hemorrhaging their best players to their cross-city rivals. RJ Styrn and Espiridon Caszely have both flown the roost in recent years, albiet for a fair amount of money, and Cazadores have generally struggled to keep pace especially as their conveyor-belt of youth talent appears to have gone on the blink in recent years

Cazadores Cathair are a side most Audioslavian neutrals - ie, those Audioslavians not living in Cathair, Oljestaden or Tzierra, whose constituent football clubs dominate the Audioslavian footballing landscape - can get behind. Cazadores, based on the eastern outskirts of the capital city, have long played a brand of exciting, attacking football, and despite their lack of resources have been more than capable of mixing it with the big boys since their first season in the top flight. Another battle with relegation is probably on the horizon. Cazadores should be up to the task.

Lesko, a suburb of Fligsive, have hardly set the LigAnaia alight since partaking in the inaugural season. Whereas the likes of Crystal Mertagne and Westonbirt have at least had some surprisingly good seasons, Lesko's flirtation with the big time has never gotten further than a brief foray into the Globe Cup. Nevertheless, this is a solid side who, despite being tipped for relegation most seasons, have only been dropped just once in seven seasons - and they came straight back up that time too.

Tyrellia Titans are one of the traditional powerhouses of Legalite football, with countless domestic trophies under their belts, but the side have hit hard times of late. Indeed, they have never finished above nineteenth in the league, and one wonders how well such a thin squad can really acclimatize to the top flight at the second time of asking. Once again, the side will look to Patistani forward Ghani Yousuf for their goals. Whether Yousuf is up to the task is another question entirely..

Back when the LigAnaia was just a glint in the eyes of the north-east’s governing bodies, Foxchester Raiders were busy cutting swathes through world football. The Starblaydi powers, resplendent in their traditional blue and orange, reached the final of the Champions Cup in UICA season 33, and were one of the Liga Calania’s top sides before the league eventually disbanded. Today’s Foxchester are a rather different beast, and have spent the majority of their LigAnaia existence cowering in the shadows of the likes of Magnaeus, Zozi and the Daii. Their best days may well be behind them, and money may well be scarce, but a side as big as this cannot be discounted in future seasons.

In getting promoted last season, Tout-Puissant Hasiera became the first LigAnaia club to progress all the way from the third flight to the first in COCANEFA football. A thin squad, that nevertheless contains the experienced Kolbruk Keinesson of Semarland, will likely struggle in the big time, but Pierluigi Buonocunto - the young Audioslavian defender - is one to watch. He could well mean the difference between survival and death come the end of the season.

The team come from the largely Francophone Audioslavian city of Hasiera, a few clicks south of the Tzierra-Herradura region - the real footballing hotbed on the island. Their rivals, Tenth Star Hasiera - a club created by Syndicatian immigrants - are down in division two, but that might not be the case for long.

Southern Ninestar were one of the original sixteen clubs to take part in the very first LigAnaia season. Since relegated and occasionally economically unviable in the seasons since, Ninestar bounced back last season to secure an unlikely place at COCANEFA's top table. The smart money is on the side to go back down from whence they came, but Ninestar are former GC qualifiers and have proven themselves to be no slouches in the domestic game.

The opening matchday of the LigAnaia has become a national holiday in most COCANEFA countries. All matches kick off at the same time - 3pm on first Saturday of August - and fans from Kurtz to Fourge, Llamabad to Laranjauzia tune in to see which teams draw first blood in the race to the title.

Matchday one in season eight sees some upsets, most notably in the form of Cazadores Cathair beating Calanion heavyweights Burgess FC in the Audioslavian capital - new signing Guillermo Sanchez-Dysos with the first goal of the game, and indeed the season, coming as it does only forty-four seconds into the game.

Tout-Puissant Hasiera also have a positive start to the season. The newcomers host highflying Fligsive FC in a baptism of fire and hold them to a one-all draw, with Kolbruk Keinesson opening the scoring before teenage sensation Hazel Van Robben's reply for the visitors, just twenty minutes into making her LigAnaia debut.

Lesko Pavillion get one over on Crystal Mertagne in the all-Calanion clash, while the biggest game of the day is undoubtedly Iskara Daii vs 1830 Cathair in a matchup of the teams who finished second and third the previous season. Cathair, despite being the away team, are hotly tipped to win, but despite Styrn's opener they are pegged back and eventually beaten by two second-half strikes - one from Owen Knob, the other from Jan Macik.

Elsewhere, Comunas Cougars and Inter Tyrellia hold each other to a 1-1 draw in the day's all-Legalite clash, while Firewood and Telecontare state their intentions with impressive away wins. The day's all-Audioslavian matchup ends with Oljestaden IF falling meekly to KT Itzalovalle thanks to two Anderson Sandro goals (the under-fire striker has apparently improved greatly in pre-season training), while there are wins for perennial challengers AC Izotz Zubia and Magnaeus City FC, the latter via a crushing 4-1 win over Foxchester Raiders.

As for the final goal of the day, that comes deep into injury time of the encounter between reigning champions Hastmead Diamante and relegation favourites Tyrellia Titans. It's the Osarians who score it, saving their blushes via a Fer Ronco finish.

Before we start: Comunas Cougars eight, Lesko Pavillion nil. It’s the largest margin of victory in LigAnaia history.

There are a number of surprises to be found upon a glance at the table after ten games. The top five is mainly as it should be, except for the lack of a Hastmead Diamante who are down in tenth after four losses in ten games. The identity of the clubs in sixth and seventh - TPH and Cazadores Cathair - is a huge surprise for those who earmarked the two sides to be on the cusp of relegation this season, while Foxchester Raiders' ninth place is a hint that the club may be turning the corner after years of residence in the bottom half of the table.

AC Izotz Zubia, two-time Anaia champions, languish down in fifteenth with just three wins to their name, while Burgess FC are struggling too, just one place below them.

At the bottom, Bob's Towing are struggling, but not as much as fellow Legalites Tyrellia Titans, who are struggling even more than they were expected to. Titans have just two points to their name in ten games, having scored only four goals.

Burgess are so low thanks to their terrible start to the campaign. That 2-0 defeat to Cazadores had initially been seen as a blip, and though few fans begrudged their team losing 3-2 to 1830 Cathair on matchday two, the meek surrender to Bob's Towing on matchday three made it zero-from-three so early in the season.

A sign of a transitional season for Burgess? Perhaps. Burgess finally won on matchday four with a win over Lesko Pavillion, but could only follow that with a draw in midweek against lowly Southern Ninestar, and were fortunate to come out of MD6's encounter with KT Itzalovalle with all three points - Angelo Gelinas netting a superb winner against the run of play.

AC Izotz Zubia fared little better in those opening exchanges. The former champions contrived to lose to FC Southern Ninestar, Telecontare and Comunas Cougars in the opening weeks, while there was an upset in Osarius as Firewood City overcame their national rivals Hastmead Diamante in a barnstorming 2-1 win.

Burgess's woeful form continues up to the christmas break, with just three wins from games ten to twenty. Those wins are impressive enough, with victory over national rivals Magnaeus City and a 6-1 thrashing of newcomers Tout-Puissant Hasiera, but the general theme is that of a good side coming up short against the big guns, as Hastmead Diamante, Telecontare and Comunas Cougars turn over the struggling side.

Elsewhere in The Union, Westonbirt are up in seventh after a run of five wins in seven games, and some fans in the west of the old country are crossing their fingers hoping for a repeat of season three, in which they shocked everyone to finish third.

There are a few upsets over games eleven to twenty, one of the biggest coming in Fligsive as the Calanion favourites are overturned 3-1 in their own stadium by Westonbirt City.

Fligsive recover the next week to hold a marauding Comunas Cougars to a draw, while Iskara Daii drop two points on a trip down south to struggling Bob's Towing.

Also on matchday twelve is the Cathair derby, wherein 1830 Cathair once again overcome the minnows of Cazadores, winning 3-1 away from home. Styrn, Caszely and Del Olmo are the scorers.

Cathair haven't started the season in their usual ass-kicking form, and they're scunnered the next week in their own ground by Bob's Towing, who run out 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from Legalite striker Finley Beaumier. Not to be out-done in the upset stakes, AC Izotz Zubia waltz out the next week and find themselves beaten on their own turf by Crystal Mertagne.

The biggest game on matchday fourteen is undoubtedly Comunas Cougars versus Magnaeus. The Cougars had had a wonderful debut season, finishing second and chasing for the title until the death. Recent seasons had been more of a struggle for the Legalites, who found themselves out of the Champions Cup places time and time again, and so fans have been bolstered by the side's form at the start of this season. The rejuvenated Cougars welcome Magnaeus to their stadium and promptly thrash them by three goals to nil in a match the Magnaeans are never really in.

Cougars visit TCU the next week and despatch of Westonbirt City by four goals to two on a weekend that is largely notable for Burgess's emphatic 6-1 away win at Tout-Puissant Hasiera, who's early season fire has long since become a pile of rotting ash, and Lesko Pavillion's 5-1 shellacking of FC Southern Ninestar, while Iskara Daii edge a close game against AC Izotz Zubia.

Matchday sixteen sees Comunas win again, this time at sleeping giants Burgess, while Firewood shock Magnaeus with a 2-1 win in Fourge. The big match of the weekend, though, is the matchup of Audioslavian powerhouses as AC Izotz Zubia host 1830 Cathair in the Derby of Audioslavia. Zozi start quickest, bolstered by the fervent home support, and take the lead on twenty minutes through Aaron Aiza. Half-time comes and goes with Zozi looking in control, and even at the start of the second half they are easily keeping the Cazarans at bay and probing themselves with counter-attacks. A corner is won on sixty-five minutes, Captain Courtois jogs forward and bullets in a header for two-nothing to the jubilation of the home support, but it is to be their final moment of happiness that day. An audacious smash-and-grab sees Cathair pull one back immediately via a speculative Lidgely effort that skims accross the damp turf into the bottom corner, before Styrn equalizes on seventy minutes and provides the winner for Del Olmo to finish on seventy-two minutes. Cathair win out 3-2, and Zozi are sent back to lick their wounds.

Their frustration is taken out on a hapless Lesko Pavillion in midweek as Zozi win 4-2 while Cathair maike light work of Foxcheser Raiders and Magnaeus City thrash Cazadores by five goals to two. The big game goes down north of the Tiberian border, as Iskara Daii host reigning champs Hastmead Diamante in a thriller that sees the sides deadlocked at 1-1 for most of the game, before Hastmead prove too strong at the death, netting the winner and the insurance-goal on eighty-five and eighty-seven minutes.

Hastmead Diamante's form continues through to the Sunday afternoon, where they play host to 1830 Cathair in a mouthwatering encounter in Fourge. Cathair are expected to pick up a point, but Hastmead rock them early with two goals in quick succession and, though Caszely can pull one back for the visitors, Diamante make it 3-1 after half-time and never really look back.

Iskara Daii can't quite pick themselves up after the loss to Diamante, and are turned over by struggling Tout-Puissant Hasiera on an ill-fated trip to Audioslavia's south coast. There's a shock in store for Comunas Cougars, too, as their rich vein of form is squashed by Firewood City in a one-sided encounter in Fourge.

Cathair come back to thrash TPH 4-0 in an all-Audioslavian clash, while Hastmead Diamante scunner Lesko Pavillion by a similar scoreline. Burgess are disappointing again in being held by Crystal Mertagne, as are fellow Calanions Fligsive who are expected to take the spoils in their game against Zozi but are beaten at the death by Sterling Rose's long range effort.

Wins for most of the usual suspects on matchday twenty - with the exception of Iskara Daii's inability to take even a point from a trip to Crystal Mertagne - means the table looks like this after twenty matchdays.

Cathair, then, are on top - a place they've become accustomed to in the LigAnaia - with Magnaeus City in an equally familiar position: high in the table, but not at the top.

Below, Hastmead, Comunas, Fligsive and Iskara Daii are in the Champions Cup places, as all of them would expect to be, but the kicker is that the Daii, currently in sixth, would *not* qualify for the Champions Cup if the league ended tonight. Thanks to UICA rules about inter-nation leagues, a minimum of three Calanion teams *must* qualify for the Champions Cup. This means that, if the league finished tonight, the third best Calanion team - Westonbirt City would be in the Champions Cup.

Burgess, a team usually accustomed to being the third best in the union, are down in fourteenth after their shocking start to the season.

Daii, then, would be in the Globe Cup, alongside KT Itzalovalle, AC Izotz Zubia, Crystal Mertagne, Tout-Puissant Hasiera and Inter, with the likes of Telecontare and Burgess not even in the Globe Cup.

At the bottom, Tyrellia Titans are in deep, deep trouble. The side have only one win in twenty games - a narrow victory over struggling Firewood City - and, with just eight points to their name, are already eleven points adrift of safety.

A bigger shock in the relegation places is Oljestaden, but the men from the north are rarely on form in the early stages of the season. Above them, Southern Ninestar, Cazadores, Foxchester and Lesko Pavillion are among the favourites to go down, but all still have an eye on Tout-Puissant Hasiera, currently eleventh, but their form could end at any moment...

Burgess take some vital steps towards their return by taking an important one-nothing win away to Iskara Daii on matchday twenty-one, and follow it up the next week with a victory over Cazadores Cathair, but run into a road-block on matchday twenty-three in the form of 1830 Cathair, who do what Cathair tend to do and win, with Molovi and Lidgely on the scoresheet.

Cathair's form had been imperious, with that win over Burgess being halfway through a run of five wins in a row, including a hard-earned victory over Iskara Daii.

The team that put a stop to Cathair are unfancied Lesko Pavillions, who twice lead before Masters's late equaliser to force a 2-2 score. Fans are annoyed, but not nearly as much as they are the next week as Cathair host lightly regarded KT Itzalovalle and lose, 2-0, on a miserable rain-sodden night in the capital.

The upset opens the door for Comunas Cougars, who are on a five-game winning streak of their own, and although they are held by a superior Hastmead Diamante side that weekend, are able to pull ahead of the Cazarans via two further wins, the latter a 6-3 mauling of Crystal Mertagne.

Magnaeus, second eight weeks ago, are still second despite some up-and-down form. The side are poor in losing to Foxchester and Oljestaden - neither of which are looking particularly hot this year - but do take a win over Iskara Daii, a fortunate draw with Hastmead Diamante and, on matchday twenty-eight, outplay 1830 Cathair at the Black Peak to overtake the Audioslavian capital club, who drop to third.

Once again, Comunas Cougars' fans are excited. So too, across the Casaran isle, are Inter Tyrellia, who sit in seventh place just ahead of a resurgent Burgess. The other Tyrellia team, Titans, are still in dire straits. They are now thirteen points adrift from second-last, and relegation looks imminent.

But then, at this stage of last season they were bottom too, and look how that turned out...

Two points clear at the top, Comunas set foot into the hallowed turf of the Iskara Daii stadium with the fate of the title technically in their hands. It's a rather galling experience, then, for the travelling fans, as they watch their team edged out in a close-fought 2-1 scoreline, with Starblaydi striker Miles Domatii scoring a second-half winner.

The defeat opens the door for Hastmead to overtake, and overtake they do with victory over Bob's Towing. Cathair, four points behind, can only draw at home to Westonbirt in an entertaining 3-3 draw.

It goes from bad to worse for Comunas Cougars, who 'entertain' 1830 Cathair in Legalese on matchday thirty. Cathair's fans are duly entertained as the three-time champs steamroller the Legalites in a one-sided three-nil scoreline, with Styrn grabbing two goals either side of a Wilfred Lidgley strike.

The weekend isn't all roses for Audioslavian clubs, as Zozi lose a one-on-one with Burgess in a matchup of the season's two underachieving 'big guns'. Nor is the weekend a complete write-off for Legalite clubs, as Inter put six goals past a floundering Foxchester Raiders.

The upset of the weekend comes in a seemingly innocuous fixture on Saturday afternoon, with the doomed Tyrellia Titans taking on Calania's brightest and best in for the form of Fligsive FC. During the pre-match talk plenty of figures are bandied about with regards to how many goals the Calanions would put past the struggling Casarans. 'One' is the answer, with Tyrellia grabbing two and pulling off the shock of the season - just their third win of the campaign.

The all Starblaydi clash is between the two top sides, and there's another upset as Telecontare, so often on the wrong side of Iskara Daii, win out by two goals to nil.

Leaders Hastmead Diamante take all three points from FC Southern Ninestar to increase their lead at the top to four points. All of a sudden, the title picture has shifted, and the Osarians are looking like two titles in a row might not be beyond them.

Not content with making a mockery of Fligsive, Tyrellia Titans manage to squeeze a point out of a hard-fought match with Burgess FC, denting the Calanion's Champions Cup ambitions in the process. Fligsive themselves face off against Magnaeus City in the big Calanion derby and fight back from a goal down to secure a much needed victory.

Up in the title race, Comunas Cougars's fall from grace is almost complete with a humiliating 3-1 defeat against Lesko Pavillion, while Hastmead maintain their four-point lead with a narrow victory over International of Tyrellia, with Cathair overcoming Telecontare in the Audioslavian capital.

Winners against Fligsive, spoilers against Burgess, Tyrellia Titans go up against their third Calanion heavyweights in as many weeks in the form of Magnaeus City.

Now just ten points adrift at the bottom - rather than fifteen - Titans fans have spent the week singing the same songs they'd created last season. Seemingly too far off the pace to avoid relegation in season seven, do so they did in emphatic style over the final ten games. Their fans, buoyed on previous results, are confident as they arrive at the Black Peak.

By the time of Magnaeus's seventh goal, most of the said fans had left, possibly to look up travel arrangements for how to get to various football grounds in Ibex, Mertagne and the more rural parts of Legalese.

It's quite the day for big results, and not only in terms of scorelines like Fligsive's 4-3 win over Westonbirt and Iskara Daii's 5-0 hammering of Cazadores Cathair. Hastmead Diamante lose ground in the title race after losing 4-2 to AC Izotz Zubia, and Cathair take full advantage, beating Firewood 3-1 to narrow the gap at the top to just one point.

Hastmead bounce back to snatch a win at home to Foxchester to keep their hopes alive, but there’s no stopping 1830 Cathair, who win out in the capital derby by two goals to one over Cazadores, with Styrn and Caszely on the scoresheet. In the Union, Magnaeus keep ground by taking a narrow one-nothing win over Burgess FC thanks to a strike from young Quebecois Fatima Naser.

Titans, trounced last week, bounce back to beat Westonbirt City by a goal to nil. Is it too late for the Legalites to make a comeback?

Comunas Cougars’ five-nothing win over Tyrellia all but relegates the Titans for the second time in three seasons.

At the top, Burgess play Hastmead Diamante and win, 2-0, all but expelling the Osarians from the title-race and the ability to defend their championship. Nine points separate the top five, with Magnaeus City, just a point away from 1830 Cathair, best placed to take a stab at the championship.

In mid-table, the battle for the latter of the league’s plethora of Globe Cup spots is hotting up. Burgess and Zozi, in mid-table for so long, are in seventh and eighth and should waltz into the UICA places - Burgess most likely into the Champions Cup due to the minimum three places on offer for Calanion clubs. Lesko Pavillion, in thirteenth, are one position shy of the final Globe Cup spot currently occupied by fellow Calanions Crystal Mertagne, though Bob’s Towing, Firewood City and Starblaydis Foxchester Raiders are within striking distance.

Titans may be all but relegated, but the relegation battle is far from over. Southern Ninestar, in twenty-first, are three adrift of ‘safety’, but whether twentieth place is safe or not will depend largely on the new UICA coefficients published at the end of this season. It’s complicated.

Hastmead Diamante fail to beat struggling Tout-Puissant Hasiera, and it appears their charge is completely over. Meanwhile, Comunas Cougars’ hotly contested win over Magnaeus City is a great result for the Legalites, who move to within two points of their defeated foes, but it isn’t a great result for the neutrals, who observe 1830 Cathair moving into the distance by way of a 2-1 win over doomed FC Southern Ninestar.

There’s yet more heartache for Hastmead Diamante as they lose a thrilling match 3-4 at home to Oljestaden, who secure the win through an emphatic four goals by Durdur Celetholtinu in a remarkable performance. Comunas lose ground too, being defeated 2-1 by Westonbirt City, also at home. Fligsive put up a stale performance in drawing a drab game with Cazadores Cathair, meaning its up to Magnaeus City to keep up with 1830 Cathair, who trounce Inter 4-2 in Legalese. Magnaeus aren’t wonderful in beating Telecontare, but beat them they do by a goal to nil, maintaining their four-point gap between themselves and the leaders.

Its official: The season is a washout, narrative-wise. Cathair win, Magnaeus drop points, Comunas lose, Fligsive are hammered, and though Hastmead do manage to win out comfortably over Crystal Mertagne, it’s too little too late. Cathair’s lead at the top stretches to six points, and the men from the Audioslavian capital aren’t finished yet…

Cathair, finally eliminated from UICA competition via a semi-final defeat in the Globe Cup, drop points away to Foxchester Raiders, but Magnaeus’ failure to take anything Cathair’s cross-town rivals Cazadores Cathair makes it a moot point - The Elders stretch their lead at the top to seven points. With only nine points up for grabs, Cathair are a win away from claiming their fourth LigAnaia championship.

Elsewhere, Hastmead are humiliated at home yet again, with Iskara Daii taking a two-goal win to close the gap between themselves as Hastmead. At this rate, Diamante won’t even be qualifying for the Champions Cup. They have to defend that two-point lead with their lives if they are to enter UICA’s premier cup competition next season.

Elsewhere, Oljestaden IF - spoilers against Hastmead, winners last week over TPH - grab a point against Burgess to edge further into the safety zone. Titans, by this point, are sure of relegation, and begin the preparations for division two by gaining a draw against Bob’s Towing - just their twenty-first point of the season.

Hastmead’s misery is complete on matchday thirty-nine. The side, champions last season, are forced to officially give up their crown in a lop-sided match against new champions 1830 Cathair, who coast to a 4-1 win over the humiliated Osarians. It turns out, too, that they could have lost 4-1 and still have been crowned champs, with Magnaeus City - the only team that could have caught them before today - losing meekly 3-1 to Bob’s Towing.

The race is on, then, for the rest of the UICA places. None of Magnaeus, Burgess or Fligsive can win the league, but all of them are assured of Champions Cup places despite Burgess being down in eighth. The other three places are currently occupied by champs Cathair, Osarians Hastmead Diamante and Comunas Cougars, though Hastmead’s cushion over Iskara Daii is back to just two points with the Daii defeating relegation favourites Tout-Puissant Hasiera by three goals to one.

AC Izotz Zubia, who have had a pretty poor season, are at least guaranteed Globe Cup football this season, but the gap between themselves and fifth-placed Hastmead is down to four points. Can the men in salmon and silver finish their comeback and make a return to the multiverse’s premier competition?

Zozi are so close, just a point away from Hastmead Diamante with two games to go. Which of the teams will make it into the Champions Cup?

As for the Globe Cup, Westonbirt have overtaken Lesko Pavillion to go into twelfth place, the last of the league’s GC places, though Bob’s Towing are on level points and neither Lesko nor Crystal Mertagne have given up the chase.

At the bottom, FC Southern Ninestar are relegated mathematically now. As for whether Tout-Puissant Hasiera will join them… they may have to wait until the new UICA Coefficients are produced to find out whether Calanion clubs require seven, or only six, clubs in the top flight next season. Should TCU remain in UICA’s top three, they would have to make way for the best Calanion team in Division 2.

Westonbirt win while Bob’s Towing don’t, meaning a win on matchday forty-two - the final game of the season - will confirm their place in next season’s Globe Cup. As for the final CC spots, Hastmead Diamante’s hard-fought win over KT Itzalovalle puts them officially back into the Champions Cup as AC Izotz Zubia somehow lose to Tyrellia Titans, who have now won their last two games back to back. Tyrellia, bottom for the entire season, can’t catch second-from-bottom Southern Ninestar, but that they’ve got themselves to within five points after having been twelve points adrift at one point might be some consolation after a torrid season.

All eleven games on matchday forty-two kick off at the same time. Cathair, already champions by some distance, win out over Crystal Mertagne on a sunny Saturday in the union.

Hastmead, now safely ensconced in the Champions Cup places, actually leapfrog Fligsive into a more respectable fourth place thanks to victory over the Calanion giants by a hefty four-one margin.

Burgess, victorious over Iskara Daii on the final matchday, finish down in eighth, but have qualified for the Champions Cup due to UICA rules on the amount of CC places Calanion clubs receive, while Westonbirt City sneak into the final Globe Cup spot despite defeat away to Inter Tyrellia, who themselves have already secured a spot in the multiverse’s second most prestigious competition.

At the bottom, Ninestar and Tyrellia Titans both go down, while Tout-Puissant Hasiera have to wait for their own fate to be decided.

24 Real Jraxville 46 12 13 21 50 67 −17 49


Should Tout-Puissant Hasiera survive, they'll be joined in the top flight by Division 2 champions and local rivals Tenth Star Hasiera, who win the second flight at a canter. Draig Goch, relegated the previous season from L1, bounce back to be promoted in second place. Jhanna City, in third, miss out on a debut season in the LigAnaia One by just two points.

Those three, plus former L1 clubs Corinthian Spirits and KT Moreazerua, join Stratton FC, Kurtz Herritik and Batal in the Series B Champions Cup.

At the bottom, all six of Coastal United, Ferramendiak, LC Capitals, Bekknia, Real Jraxville and Grasshoppers Turic are relegated on merit. Next year, two Quebecois clubs, plus four teams from the lower leagues, will take their place.

The CopAnaia returns for the first time since season four, after three seasons of 'national cups' which sent a parade of LigAnaia clubs to the Cygnus Cup. 128 teams take part from all four tiers of the LigAnaia, vying to become the superleague's one and only entrant into the Cygnus Cup - and for the prestige of being just the third CopAnaia champion.

Season Nine sees another restructuring of the LigAnaia, and included within that is a hugely ambitious change of the second flight. Previously, twenty-four teams battled one another home and away to decide which one, or occasionally two, would promote into the LigAnaia One. Now, a whole 49 teams are in competition with one another.

We call it the Repechage 49, or R49 for short.

Each team plays each other once. Teams play 24 of their games at home, and 24 away. The top two teams are promoted automatically, with two further teams swapping the R49 for the top flight depending on which teams are getting relegated.

Season nine is the very first time the R49 has been contested. The final league table can be seen here

The LigAnaia is back, and this time, there's two of them.

The decision to split the top flight of the league in two came soon after it was made official that not only The Royal Kingdom of Quebec, but Krytenia too, would join the now eight-strong meta-confederation. The previously 22-team LigAnaia was duly split into two leagues of twenty teams each. On one side, the LigAnaia Calania, comprised of teams from Krytenia, The Royal Kingdom of Quebec, Ibex and The Calanian Union compete for the Calanian Championship in the LigAnaia: Calania. On the other side, teams from Audioslavia, Starblaydia, Osarius and Legalese contest the Island Championship in the LigAnaia: North-East.

Hastmead Diamante (Osarius)
Last Five Seasons: N/A, 4, 3, 1, 4
Rosie Munro (G, 26, OSR), Marcus Williams (G, 22, OSR), Drý Szânjêý (D, 28, FFD), Marcel Cirocco (D, 28, OSR), Emmeline Mariconda (D, 27, OSR), Melinda Rubio (D, 26, OSR), India Turner (D, 22, OSR), Matjas Nordland (D, 24, SEM), Julian Collingwood (D, 24, BRE), Louis Porter (M, 23, DRV), Fer Rôncö (M, 28, FFD), Elaine Ashdown (M, 24, NPH), Nicola Costello (M, 25, OSR), Demetrio Constantini (M, 19, OSR), Daniele Gentile (M, 18, OSR), Elliot Francis (F, 21, JEC), Tanya Bottlegreen (F, 25, NPH), Robert Barker (F, 20, OSR), Esteban Crespo (F, 19, OSR), Jorit van Kruistum (F, 24, PAS)
Since the merge with LigAnaia, Diamante have gone on to establish themselves as Osarius’ best club side, though success in the multinational system has been limited. The highly rated youth academy in Carbonia is producing once again, it seems, and manager Benni Watson -- himself a product of the academy -- is willing to put a lot of faith in these emerging youngsters. As usual, it is likely that Hastmead’s success will live and die with their wingers’ ability to create chances, so all eyes will be on Nepharim Tanya Bottlegreen and Pasargan Jorit van Kruistum; youngster Elliot Francis will take on a lot of the burden of scoring, though Watson rates teenage striker Esteban Crespo very highly. Expectations are high for both young forwards in the absence of veteran Giorgia Caruso.

Defensively, Hastmead will be hoping that Semarland’s Matjas Nordland has matured enough to take on more responsibility at the back, while India Turner’s athleticism brings back memories of a marauding Habib Kouli at right back. The acquisition of Rosie Munro is a shrewd one, too, and will give some stability to the Fourgian side’s back four as they look to claim silverware on a more regular basis in one of the Multiverse’s toughest leagues.

Iskara Daii (Starblaydia)
Last Five Seasons: 7, 6, 8, 2, 7
Bognár Lukacs (G, 25, PAS), Finimolo Juez (D, 27, AUD), Inbekira Ajhabekk (D, 21, VIL), Marquinhos Carnavalense (M, 23, NSI), Guillermo Di Luca (M, 34, NSI), Jan Macik (M, 25, PAS), Ansel Bone (M, 25, TAE), Holden Earp (M, 25, TAE), Joord Rietveld (F, 16, AUD), Owen Knob (F, 23, NDP) + a number of Starblaydis
The Daii are legendary. The oldest and most prestigious of Starblaydia’s domestic clubs, the former club of Simeone di Bradini, the x-time Starblaydi champions. The modern team don’t quite stand as tall as their shadow, but Iskara Daii have yet to finish lower than eighth in the LigAnaia - no mean feat considering the sheer amount of competition.

Iskara Daii’s season seven was their best since their transformation from Liga Starblaydia legends to LigAnaia heavyweights. The side finished second, pulling away from third-placed 1830 Cathair at the death, and qualified for the Champions Cup for the second time in five seasons. The Daii have not fared too well in UICA competition thus far, but the current side seems well placed to mount a challenge.

1830 Cathair (Audioslavia)
Last Five Seasons: 1, 5, 1, 3, 1
Jaap Kanonholster (G, 23, AUD), Kiki Nuremberg (G, 29, FEL), Ulrika Kinlasson (D, 24, APX), Giacomo Di Calania (D, 18, AUD), Bastijn Fokke-Rommedahl (D, 20, AUD), Alex Koskinen (D, 37, AUD), Andrea Molovi (D, 33, EQS), Wilfred Lidgley (M, 31, APX), Zorio Etxezuniyiga (M, 16, AUD), Ivo Cuijpers (M, 17, AUD), Ruisheart Wight (M, 18, AUD), Jaime del Olmo (M, 27, CEN), Dandra Harris (M, 31, EAR), Cyrus Damhan (M, 35, LGL), Espiridón Caszely (F, 23, AUD), Ronda Jude Styrn (F, 29, AUD), Rodolfo Zelaya (F, 25, SJG)

The LigAnaia’s defending champions hail from the well-to-do Grand Forum sector of Cathair. The fashionable capital club have a rich history, being one of the first football clubs in all of Audioslavia, but their modern incarnation has seen them portrayed somewhat as spoiled rich kids, throwing money at some of the league’s smaller clubs in order to hoover up local talent. Cathair’s local rivals are traditionally the west-Cathair side Shamrock Cathair, but a decline in fortunes for the men in green, and the resurgence of previously unfashionable Cazadores Cathair, from the eastern docklands area of the city, has seen the Caza-Catha derby rise to infamy as one of the most fierce in Atlantian Oceania,

RJ Styrn leads the line alongside teenage sensation Epiridon Caszely. The midfield of Kinlasson, Damhan and living-legend Wilfred Lidgley are joined by a huge name in Cenian Jaime Del Olmo, who should force Earent’s Dandra Harris down to the sub’s bench. In defence, Laszlo Passcroft should retain his spot at right-back, while the side should continue with the partnership of Alec Koskinen and Andrea Molovi in the centre. Felixian goalkeeper Kiki Nuremberg - almost faultless last season - has been given the vice-captaincy for the current season.

AC Izotz Zubia (Audioslavia)
Last Five Seasons: 4, 1, 2, 6, 6

Football in Audioslavia has two main hotbeds - Cathair and the mountainous Tzierra region, and if 1830 are the kings of Cathair, there’s no doubt which team have claimed the title of ‘King of the Mountains’ in recent years. ‘Zozi’, usually resplendent in their trademark ‘silver and salmon’’ (grey and pink to you and me) hoops, are two-time LigAnaia champions. 1830 Cathair are the club’s biggest rivals, but Zozites differ on who their local rivals are, as there are a slew of local clubs to choose from. KT Ferrmendiak, KT Moreazerua and KT Itzalovalle are the biggest teams from the region, but its the latter who have been closest to Zozi in recent years.

The team itself are strong, if not quite as strong on paper as the Catharan champions. Goalkeeper Abraham Terrazas has proved himself a calm head between the sticks in recent years, despite his youth. That calmness could be down to the strength of the defence, lead by club captain Patrick Courtois, talented Apoxian Susan Endicott and local hero Orson Faulkner, he of the championship-winning goal in season five. A four-man midfield is operated mainly by Etarmara Kukkiia, the Turorian international, who ensures a constant supply is given to Jaurti Buruz and Nazeau Roga up front. The most interesting pre-season addition has to be Sterling Rose. The Euran is a prodigious talent.

Comunas Cougars (Legalese)
Last Five Seasons: 3, 10, 9, 7, 3
Morrissey Beaudine (G, 28, LGL), Emmett Celis (G, 23, LGL), Kieran Ciccarone (G, 24, LGL), Gnaeus Shoobridge (D, 27, LGL), Gruffudd Masters (D, 27, LGL), Kellen Grubbs (D, 27, LGL), Julian Crowther (D, 33, LGL), Gaius Goldrich (M, 23, LGL), Ardal Miners (M, 27, LGL), Christian Linman (M, 28, LGL), Armando Woernle (M, 30, LGL), Dominic Morgenthaler (F, 24, LGL), Jake Detzler (F, 27, LGL)

Comunas Cougars exploded onto the scene in season four - the freshmen year for Legalite clubs in the LigAnaia - and finished in third place, qualifying for the Champions Cup and being unlucky not to place higher. The next season, however, saw a rapid fall from grace. Cougars’ form deteriorated rapidly at the start of the year and the side never really clawed their way back, finishing down in tenth place - only just enough for a Globe Cup place. Previous seasons have seen some rebuilding, but the side are usually loathe to spend money in the transfer window and one feels that, without an influx of money and players, the Legalite powerhouses may well struggle again to break the top five again.

International of Tyrellia (Legalese)
Last Five Seasons: 8, 13, 7, 10, 9
Alexander Salmi (G, 33, LGL), Kenny Stroud (D, 36, LGL), Ed Staudt (D, 26, LGL), Arlen Massay (D, 33, LGL), Rheged Beuchler (D, 36, LGL), Gianna Spahn (M, 20, GLX), Jaylin Cavin (M, 35, LGL), Christopher Kramp (M, 36, LGL), Oliver Ábrego (M, 25, SJG), Appius Howey (F, 33, LGL), Nixon Tremaine (F, 35, LGL)
International of Tyrellia are one of the powerhouses of Legalite football, but have thus far failed to truly impress in the LigAnaia. Fans of the club have lowered their expectations in recent years, content with Globe Cup qualification and a decent showing in UICA’s secondary competition. Their success may depend on how the side continue to cope without Cyrus Damhan, the Legalite legend who left for 1830 Cathair two seasons ago,

Telecontare (Starblaydia)
Last Five Seasons: 16, 7, 10, 11, 10
Bancinithor Shalandalan (Elf, VAL), Learithien Kevadhrinthor (Elf, VAL), Elthanthon Culynndal (Elf, VAL), Indóien Mavanta (Elf, VAL), Tathârian Lassyail (Elf, VAL), Arlanon Ondoviel (Elf, VAL), Athilond Aldalithe (Elf, VAL), Tienuionnar Toraagaar (Elf, VAL), Valdaguionnar Mithlothion (Elf, VAL), Belohóle Vantauré (Elf, VAL), Edenien Galadel (Elf, VAL), Vanamelien Toralasyr (Elf, VAL), Airaaias Cromvathar (Elf, VAL), Banmelir Aldaeth (Elf, VAL), Vithphenil Werlynnseer (Elf, VAL)
Starblaydia has a very large immigrant population, and each and every one of them would be up in arms if we didn’t include Telecontare in the list of contenders. The Tabeck outfit are former winners of the Liga Calania - one of the LigAnaia’s spiritual ancestors - and the richness of their support is matched only by that of their bank accounts, but the team endured a torrid first two seasons in the LigAnaia, almost being relegated after their first season and falling away drastically in the second half of season four. There are some who suggest the side are a shadow of their former glories, but as any of the team’s elven contingent (ie pretty much all of them) will tell you, it takes more than a little rain to dull elvish steel.

KT Itzalovalle (Audioslavia)
Last Five Seasons: 9, 9, 11, 13, 11
Txordin Ybarra (G, 18, AUD), Ryan Great (G, 37, TSA), Hermann Fisher (D, 32, APX), Jouard Caceres (D, 18, AUD), Turi Varisco (D, 21, AUD), Andreij Tal (D, 38, AUD), Adam Cooper (M, 26, GLX), Dylan Wells (M, 26, GLX), Mezei Orbán (M, 30, PAS), Escobar de Cabanyas (F, 19, AUD), Kenzo Temporuin (F, 27, NSI)
KT Itzalovalle are perhaps Audioslavia’s third best team, having been one of the few ever-presents in the top division and with a string of Globe Cup qualifications under their belt. The side have occasionally struggled in recent seasons, not least due to the erratic form of $12m flop Anderson Sandro up front. 'Itzi' are, without a doubt, the second club in the Tzierra region behind Zozi.

Bob's Towing (Legalese)
Last Five Seasons: 15, 16, 12, 14, 14
Andrew Maisenbacher (G, 29, LGL), Cody Polka (D, 24, LGL), Keefe Warburton (D, 28, LGL), Gibson Baires (D, 36, LGL), Brayden Champy (M, 23, LGL), Chance Cloman (M, 28, LGL), Cade Zorich (M, 30, LGL), Gus Tokkesdal (F, 23, LGL), Finley Beaumier (F, 34, LGL)
Bob’s Towing are perhaps the most bizarrely named of the LigAnaia’s Legalite representatives, but the side are one with the most interesting story behind them. Back in Legal Year 258 (2135 for the Audioslavians reading), the outfit sprung up as a youth team, when the Darland brothers, Jimmy and Vincent, convinced their father, Robert, to have his service station sponsor their youth team. As such, the name emblazoned on their shirt read Bob’s Towing. Jimmy turned out to be good enough to keep his friends in the game, as the club moved up from recreational youth play, to local pub leagues, to becoming a semi-professional force, enough to earn an invite into the national championship program, as well as full sponsorship from Gamma Apparel, also based in Plainsview. Despite winning the first National Championship, the fortunes of Towing have sagged of late, with the Darlands now relegated to the front office. It has been up to Casnar Golt to turn their fortunes around, before their story remains just an old memory.

Firewood City (Osarius)
Last Five Seasons: 11, 18, 17, 20, 15
Gianluca Bottego (G, 25, OSR), Trent Baird (G, 22, OSR), Akio Sweet (D, 23, BAR), Daniel Kruse (D, 23, NPH), Theodore Prince (D, 27, OSR), Violetta Trimboli (D, 24, OSR), Nino Pellegrini (D, 22, OSR), Scout Given (D, 25, BRE), Jallerrhé Ljungman (D, 18, FFD), Willis Finchley (M, 29, DRV), Kath Boston (M, 25, NPH), Neil Wright (M, 26, OSR), Ralph Long (M, 21, OSR), Juan Pablo Reyes (M, 27, VLD), Pedro Pedretti (M, 27, VLD), Mohammed Essa (F, 23, PAT), Riccardo Carbone (F, 18, OSR), Tobias Clarke (F, 28, OSR), Darell Marshall (F, 27, OSR), Malcolm Aitken (F, 22, OSR), Scott Duncan (F, 21, OSR)
It has to be said that it is baffling the degree to which Firewood struggled under Reiss Ryerson. The former captain has since resigned from his post, though, and the club have started a full rebuilding process under new manager D’Antoni Williams.

The signing of young Patistani forward Mohammed Essa is just the start of the plan. Riccardo Carbone’s promotion from the youth team suggests that Williams plans a highly attacking system this year, relying on the “big man, little man” combination and two talented wingers. The overtly attacking 4-4-2 is often ridiculed in Osarius these days, but with such talent in the midfield -- notably Firewood’s 100m Valladares international pairing of Reyes and Pedretti -- Williams might get away with it. If not, the signing of Violetta Trimboli enables the switch to a three-back system, though that comes with it’s own perils.

If success is not forthcoming this season, expect to see wholesale changes from Williams -- if he’s still around -- next summer, as the board continue their attempts to restore Osarius’ greatest club of all-time to former glories.

Cazadores Cathair (Audioslavia)
Last Five Seasons: 17, 19, 18, 16, 19
Pablo Llorente (G, 22, AUD), Serge Rollins (G, 31, AUD), Ramon Goicoechea (D, 20, AUD), Rami Levinsky (D, 26, AUD), Joseph Venus (D, 30, AUD), James Courageous (D, 31, AUD), Arndu Farsgaard (D, 31, COS), Edgar Ambroise (D, 20, YTT), Cibran Zambrano (M, 21, AUD), Ari Mendea (M, 34, AUD), Georgios Kokinos (M, 35, FEL), Lutheromano Reigns (M, 17, WSI), Juancarlos de Sierra (F, 19, AUD), Rook Cathar (F, 31, NPH), John Beckett (F, 36, NPH)
In Cathair, the second club right now is Cazadores Cathair, poor relations of 1830 Cathair and a team who have a habit of hemorrhaging their best players to their cross-city rivals. RJ Styrn and Espiridon Caszely have both flown the roost in recent years, albiet for a fair amount of money, and Cazadores have generally struggled to keep pace especially as their conveyor-belt of youth talent appears to have gone on the blink in recent years

Cazadores Cathair are a side most Audioslavian neutrals - ie, those Audioslavians not living in Cathair, Oljestaden or Tzierra, whose constituent football clubs dominate the Audioslavian footballing landscape - can get behind. Cazadores, based on the eastern outskirts of the capital city, have long played a brand of exciting, attacking football, and despite their lack of resources have been more than capable of mixing it with the big boys since their first season in the top flight. Another battle with relegation is probably on the horizon. Cazadores should be up to the task.

Oljestaden IF (Audioslavia)
Last Five Seasons: 12, 14, 11, 15, 18
Pilotak Hegan-Iragana (G, 36, AUD), Zebjan Istanjovich (G, 23, SIC), Kevin Wazockry (D, 24, APX), Olivier Thierault (D, 18, AUD), Seoras Mierdaugh (D, 19, AUD), Laszlo Passcroft (D, 27, AUD), Apollinaris Tretyakova (D, 23, NSI), Yousah Khan (D, 33, PAT), Harry Xafagoulis (M, 26, APX), Aloysius Schrijnemakers (M, 27, KYP), Vass Adrián (M, 27, PAS), Tomas Kristofics (M, 24, PIS), Bennik Hreidarsson (M, 16, SEM), Ivan Haarstad (F, 34, PIS), Jonathan Faña (F, 30, SJG), Dûrdur Celetholtinu (F, Elf, VAL)
Oljestaden IF, the team from the wet and windy north of the nation. Oljestaden's fortunes have long been built around the form of ever-present Vanor striker Durder Celetholtinu, and the club will once again rely on the elf's goalscoring prowess if they are to avoid a relegation battle this season.

Tyrellia Titans (Legalese)
Last Five Seasons: 19, 22, N/A, 19, 22
Evan Swales (G, 35, LGL), Jamie Scotton (D, 23, LGL), Matthew Lyness (D, 23, LGL), Christopher Rubenzer (D, 24, LGL), Jess Sanderson (M, 30, BRE), Diego Gazitano (M, 23, LGL), Ruben Ribb (M, 26, LGL), Kai Suriel (M, 32, LGL), Quintus Oxboro (F, 26, LGL), Ghani Yousuf (F, 25, PAT), Daniel Moralidad (F, 31, TRB)

Utica United (Osarius)
Last Five Seasons: N/A, Div2, Div2, Div2, Div2
Phil Dornell (G, 24, MRT), Blaise N'Zonzi (G, 24, SEM), Dante Crescento (D, 21, OSR), Rodrigo Sevilla (D, 26, OSR), Elena Ortiz (D, 25, OSR), Roman Linares (D, 23, OSR), Bradley Porter (D, 22, OSR), Jorge Santana (D, 21, OSR), Graciela Zamora (M, 24, OSR), Alvaro Puente (M, 25, KRS), Nathan Henstridge (M, 22, ERS), Alan Drummond (M, 19, OSR), Damian Munoz (M, 22, OSR), Yohannes Marcussen (M, 26, SEM), Sê Brêgoô (F, 28, FFD), Octavio Madera (F, 27, OSR), Shafqat Tariq (F, 21, PAT), Ysabel Ortiz (F, 26, OSR), Eusebio Chavez (F, 23, OSR), Jefferson Madera (F, 27, AQL), Ashley Saunders (F, 19, OSR)
Utica’s resurgence on a domestic level was cut cruelly short when the Osarian League of Association Football merged with LigAnaia, but they have bided their time in the second division, waiting for the opportunity to show everyone that they are still deserving of being spoken of in the same breath as Hastmead and Firewood. Pundits across Osarius are optimistic of Utica’s chances in the first division, and don’t suspect they are in danger of relegation… however, mid-table is about as good at it is likely to get. For now.

The manager is okay with this, stating his intent to establish the side before pressing a challenge to the upper echelons. The fans trust him to do just that. See, Ruben Contreras’ tenure has been one of mixed fortunes for Utica, but his eye for talent is undeniable. Utica’s strategy of acquiring talented youngsters was originally frowned upon, but fans have over the years become accustomed to seeing young players develop brilliantly only to be sold on in their prime… primarily because they can rely on Contreras replacing them every single time.

A familiar name will be on the tongues of every Utica fan this season, as they see Alan Drummond -- nephew of a certain immensely talented former Utica playmaker -- break into the first team. Having already made his international debut, expectations are high. Contreras will be hoping that the youngster can link up with the frighteningly quick forwards Utica deploy of late -- most notably the veteran Aquilliano winger Jefferson Madera, and fox-in-the-box teenage striker Ashley Saunders -- and drive this team in a march up the table toward their old rivals.

Trothwands Evolution (Osarius)
Last Five Seasons: N/A, Div3, Div3, Div3, Div2
Clayton Hart (G, 19, OSR), Annabeth Kudlowski (G, 34, SLL), Michael Lee (D, 28, OSR), Nathaniel Porter (D, 26, OSR), Jacinta Palacios (D, 25, OSR), Mauro Messieri (D, 24, OSR), Enzo Bianchi (D, 18, OSR), Rinaldo Rizzi (D, 18, OSR), Jacob Pandan (D, 28, COS), Elena Varela (M, 30, OSR), Marcos Espinosa (M, 26, OSR), Gustavo Feliciano (M, 19, OSR), Lauro Tedesco (M, 18, OSR), Antonio Zapata (M, 18, OSR), Greg Reid (M, 24, OSR), Sara Neshek (M, 32, SLL), Faustino Baroni (F, 26, OSR), Brandon McKenzie (F, 25, OSR), Darik Samuels (F, 20, OSR), Jerome Monroe (F, 20, OSR), Theodora Covenant (F, 22, NPH)
A strong side back in the days of the Golden League, the former Osarian cup winners had spent their formative LigAnaia years toiling in the second and third divisions in front of increasingly frustrated supporters. Now, despite being in the top flight at long last, Evo had not really earned their spot, being promoted primarily due to the new rules about association quotas. Unlike Utica United, Evo have it all to prove to a sceptical public.

In fairness to “the fourth most popular club in Fourge”, they do have a reasonably strong squad. Their investments in their own youth academy have paid off with the emergence of two international quality wingers -- both Samuels and Monroe are semi-regular selections for the Osarius national team -- but without a consistent goal threat to pass to, or reliable defenders at the other end, Evo are still quite limited. Unfortunately, the club’s financial situation doesn’t really permit them to go out and spend nine figures rebuilding their squad, like say, Firewood or Hastmead might.

Jonathan Herd’s reputation among the fans will carry him through a couple of tough seasons as they adjust, perhaps… but the small, die-hard fanbase that is Trothwands Evolution supporters won’t wait too long for success. Avoiding relegation will be task number one, but few fans will be happy unless Trothwands experience a deep cup run, as they are accustomed to under Herd, or they are fighting for the Globe Cup places come May.

Foxchester Raiders (Starblaydia)
Last Five Seasons: 11, 18, 17, 20, 15
Wim de Snaaijer (G, 16, AUD), Yuroichi Shimada (D, 23, NSI), Anders Weiss (D, 31, PIS), Martin Carlsson (D, 20, SEM), Rochedo Camargo (D, 23, WSI), Kievan Stuart (M, 18, AUD), Matt Kilgallon (M, 29, BRE), Kurtis Armstrong (M, 30, BRE), Johnny Jones (M, 29, SCV), Quinto Juez (F, 25, AUD), Leon Proffisalle (F, 31, MRT)
Back when the LigAnaia was just a glint in the eyes of the north-east’s governing bodies, Foxchester Raiders were busy cutting swathes through world football. The Starblaydi powers, resplendent in their traditional blue and orange, reached the final of the Champions Cup in UICA season 33, and were one of the Liga Calania’s top sides before the league eventually disbanded. Today’s Foxchester are a rather different beast, and have spent the majority of their LigAnaia existence cowering in the shadows of the likes of Magnaeus, Zozi and the Daii. Their best days may well be behind them, and money may well be scarce, but a side as big as this cannot be discounted in future seasons.

Tenth-Star Hasiera (Audioslavia)
Last Five Seasons: Div 2, Div 2, Div 2, Div 2, Div 2
Revelin O`Riordan (G, 27, AUD), Ricciardo Resegone (D, 18, AUD), Javier Monroy (D, 23, AUD), Rodney Plath (D, 19, TIS), Geert Van Horst (D, 22, TIS), Asier Huelva (M, 18, AUD), Giancarlo Caddenazzi (M, 20, AUD), Misha Nechemevic (M, 27, AUD), Ivan Zukertort (M, 28, AUD), Jean-Pablo Costacurta-Groove (M, 22, ESI), Eonmhid Carthurst (M, 19, TIS), Isidoro Vences (F, 22, AUD), Antony Sixton (F, 27, MRT)
Tout-Puissant Hasiera's relegation last season came with the double-blow of cross-town rivals Tenth Star's promotion. TSH, the younger of the two teams, was formed by Syndicatian migrants into the south-east of Audioslavia, have spent the entirety of their existence in the lower reaches of the LigAnaia. Fans are cautiously optimistic about the coming season.

Fligsive FC (The Calanian Union)
Last Five Seasons: 2, 2, 6, 4, 5
Current line-up
Fligsive are, so far, the only Calanion side to have won the LigAnaia, having done so in season three. The side have come on leaps and bounds in UICA competition, too, currently sitting a dizzying fifteenth in the UICA rankings. The side’s league form, however, has dropped off in recent years. The side had a run of four finishes in the top two at one point - usually coming up through the table with a late charge - but a sixth-placed finish in season six was nothing short of disaster. That Fligsive have failed to finish in the top three in the last three seasons is a point of contention for the fans.

Fligsive are, once again, in the Champions Cup this season. It remains to be seen how strong the team will be this year.

Westonbirt City (The Calanian Union)
Last Five Seasons: 10, 14, 20, 12, 12
Current line-up
Westonbirt City’s best LigAnaia season so far was season three, whereby they bit their collective thumbs at the established order and fought their way to third place. The next season they went one better, and managed to claw their way even past the group stages of the Globe Cup. That performance, however, came at the cost of league form, and the green-clad side from western Syndicatia finished well out of the Globe Cup places. The side have flirted with relegation in recent years, but an ever-changing first-eleven may have a better chance at competing this year.

Crystal Mertagne (The Calanian Union)
Last Five Seasons: 12, 12, 14, 9, 16
Current line-up
Crystal Mertagne are a team that nowadays have little to do with the nation that shares their name. While an amazing, table topping finish isn’t exactly on the cards for the northern Syndicatian team, Crystal Mertagne are looking to avoid both a lawsuit with the new nation and relegation from the top flight. They may not look like the men to do it, but sometimes the underdogs can end up surprising us all.

Burgess FC (The Calanian Union)
Last Five Seasons: 5, 8, 5, 8, 8
Current line-up
Burgess FC’s runners-up place in the inaugural LigAnaia season was supposed to be a statement of intent, according to their fans. To be fair, it more or less was: they haven’t won the league in any other season either. The men in sky-blue and yellow have bounced around the top ten in recent seasons, never finishing lower than eighth, or higher than fifth, or in any other position, actually, but for a side with aspirations of league and UICA silverware, merely ‘competing’ isn’t enough. For Burgess, qualification for the Champions Cup is their aim once again - one they’ve missed every season bar season one.

The good news for Burgess, of course is the high placement of the Calanian Union football association in the UICA rankings. TCU clubs have a minimum of three clubs heading towards the CC next season, which is one of the reasons Burgess are in the Champions Cup despite finishing eighth last season. Burgess may be aiming high, but even missing out on a top-five finish won’t hurt the team - as long as they can stay above the likes of Crystal Mertagne and Westonbirt City.

Magnaeus City (The Calanian Union)
Last Five Seasons: 6, 3, 4, 5, 2
Current line-up
Magnaeus are a mystery. Why? Well, for example, the side have zero silverware. No league titles, no cups, not even a minor trophy. They have tended to outperform rivals Burgess FC since the LigAnaia began, but have never truly looked like potential champions.

Magnaeus are, however, very good when it comes to foreign opposition, and the side have always been one of the highest-ranked of the LigAnaia’s UICA competitors.

Avidia United (Krytenia)
Last Five Seasons: N/A
Ricky Veris (G, 18, KRY), Bill Boyce (G, 21, KRY), Joey Deeres (G, 28, KRY), Alex Colari (D, 16, KRY), Richard Kerimi (D, 16, KRY), Miguel Martinez (D, 17, KRY), Gail Kallis (D, 20, KRY), Derek Boyle (D, 22, KRY), Rick di Michelis (D, 23, KRY), Ellis Mansell (D, 24, KRY), Sam Barcali (D, 25, KRY), Paul Sable (D, 27, KRY), Vinny Frenz (D, 30, KRY), Scott Clifford (M, 17, KRY), Yves Toussaint (M, 17, KRY), Zachary Bruno (M, 17, KRY), Marcus Löw (M, 18, KRY), Cesc Lumero (M, 19, KRY), Luis Hernandez (M, 19, KRY), David del Plata (M, 20, KRY), Samuel Alinas (M, 25, KRY), Fernando Reyes (M, 26, KRY), Felix Navas (M, 27, KRY)
The men from Krytenia’s second city have always been the quiet ones in Krytie football. Originally known as AFC Avidia, the Eagles lived long in the shadows of their cross-city rivals, Avidia City. A name change and a couple of lucky breaks later, Avidia United won the O-League, the Globe Cup, and immortality in Krytenian domestic football. The current side isn’t expecting to surpass those feats (yet), but they’ll be hard to break down.

Casuals Osteria (Krytenia)
Last Five Seasons: N/A
Marc Alcide (G, 17, KRY), Jason Leuter (G, 22, KRY), Cameron Sanvincente (D, 20, KRY), Mark Ellisham (D, 23, KRY), Michel Demetrius (D, 25, KRY), Hernan Garande (D, 28, KRY), Matthew Warszywa (D, 28, KRY), Bobby O'Connor (D, 29, KRY), James Cates (M, 19, KRY), Warren Geidmintis (M, 23, KRY), Liam Larsson (M, 24, KRY), Jim Vezlov (M, 26, KRY), Ryan Wald (M, 26, KRY), Vincent Avus (M, 33, KRY), Jean-Louis Banet (F, 18, KRY), John Vermana (F, 23, KRY), James Collina (F, 25, KRY), Vernon Schottenberg (F, 28, KRY), (, , ), (, , ), (, , ), (, , ), (, , ),
Casuals come from the mining city of Osteria, and have a longstanding relationship with the coalminers (and latterly steelworkers) of this industrial city. An amateur club for many years, hence the Casuals moniker, professionalism brought about domestic success for the Miners. Though likely to be the weakest of the Krytenian sides, they’re hard-working and will be hoping to avoid the dreaded “R”.

Emberton Reds (Krytenia)
Last Five Seasons: N/A
Andrew Lindstrom (G, 22, KRY), David Heaton (G, 27, KRY), Tyler Scuros (D, 19, KRY), Lucas Ziavi (D, 23, KRY), Phillip Johanssen (D, 23, KRY), Ralph Silvera (D, 26, KRY), Jonathan Ifans (D, 27, KRY), Marc Rossi (D, 30, KRY), Adam Juneau (M, 18, KRY), Adrian Anuzzi (M, 18, KRY), Anthony Barcelo (M, 18, KRY), Marco Angelo (M, 20, KRY), John Mateja (M, 25, KRY), Thomas Augenthaler (M, 26, KRY), Michael Ricksen (M, 27, KRY), Alan Blackman (F, 19, KRY), Ronnie van Rijn (F, 30, KRY), Robert Persson (F, 31, KRY), (, , ), (, , ), (, , ), (, , ), (, , ),
Calling the cavernous Isserson Olympic Stadium their home, Emberton’s fans are amongst the loudest you will hear. Unfortunately, though, the Reds are far more famous for their ability to choke after a strong start to the season. Hoping to end this will be Nepharim star striker Michael Kellard, signed after Krytenian international Ronnie van Rijn went off to seek his fortune in Farfadillis.

Mercia Bromham (Krytenia)
Last Five Seasons: N/A
Ottavio Juez (G, 22, AUD), David Hill (G, 18, KRY), Ben Fraser (G, 33, KRY), Gareth Allinson (D, 18, KRY), Jason Davis (D, 21, KRY), Chris Gamble (D, 26, KRY), John Oliver (D, 26, KRY), Steven Pockett (D, 26, KRY), Joel Scott (D, 27, KRY), Chris Logan (D, 29, KRY), Chris Sharpe (M, 19, KRY), Joe Miller (M, 20, KRY), Craig Grasmere (M, 23, KRY), Callum Manson (M, 25, KRY), Nick Jacobs (M, 25, KRY), Jimmy Morris (M, 27, KRY), Vic Akers (F, 21, KRY), Edwin Brown (F, 29, KRY), Simon Berry (F, 30, KRY)
Bromham have some serious financial clout, being owned as they are by the Swann family, owners of digital technology behemoths Cygnus Coporation. What they lack, however, is reputation. But with an Audioslavian signing in goal, and money to burn, expect that to change sooner rather than later.

Ousevale Borough (Krytenia)
Last Five Seasons: N/A
Ian Lockwood (G, 18, KRY), Martin Davis (G, 24, KRY), Spencer Jordan (D, 19, KRY), Thomas Flynn (D, 20, KRY), Carl Federici (D, 23, KRY), Anthony Ellis (D, 25, KRY), Lee Hodge (D, 26, KRY), Dwayne Lewis (D, 28, KRY), Daniel Howells (M, 17, KRY), Samuel Aston (M, 17, KRY), Daniel Brown (M, 21, KRY), Ben Reece (M, 22, KRY), Charlie Butcher (M, 23, KRY), Darren Radcliffe (M, 24, KRY), Mark Milton (M, 25, KRY), Tommy Cox (F, 19, KRY), Dean Fletcher (F, 32, KRY), Valrauncion (F, Elf, KRY), Adnan Zozula (F, 28, APX)
Ousevale are, quite simply, the name in Krytenian football. The former club champions of the world are famous for their “United Nations” team of many years ago, when the likes of Valrauncion, Ricky Sexton, Piran Hean, and Michael Willem gave migraines to the globe. Admittedly, the club may not have quite the international flavour of the past, and Trevor Spencer’s property and construction empire means his wallet is notably less crammed than the Swann coffers, but Valrauncion is still there, and the side is not exactly poor. Expect the Tigers to be challenging for a Champions’ Cup place come season’s end.

Also competing in this league: St. John's Arsenal (QUE), Montreal Koreana (QUE), Batal (IBX), Trojana Condommakers (QUE), Sayyaf (IBX), CSKA Quebec (QUE), Khinjar (IBX), Kurtz Herritk (TCU)

There's a baptism of fire of sorts for Trothwands as their first top flight LigAnaia match comes against reigning champions 1830 Cathair, but the Trothwands Terrordome appears aptly named as Cathair fall behind early and only manage to salvage a draw through a Ronda Styrn finish on 82 minutes.

Elsewhere in Fourge, former LigAnaia champions Hastmead Diamante make a meal of their opening match, drawing 2-2 against a Tyrellia Titans team that look nowhere near the no-hopers that finished bottom of the old LigAnaia last season.

Shanak, another Osarian newcomer, themselves grab a draw against Legalites Draig Goch, and Utica United round off a trio of score draws for the new Osarian teams as they come back to take a point from Cazadores Cathair.

Hidden in the forest of draws are a handful of teams collecting all three points. Inter are one, beating Telecontare 4-2, while Comunas Cougars win an all-Legalite encounter against Bob's Towing. One of this season's myriad derbies of south-east Audioslavian clubs takes place to, with newcomers Tenth Star Hasiera edging KT Itzalovalle 3-2 away from home.

Notable on matchday two is the Cathair derby, though the winner is hardly surprising as 1830 Cathair win out 3-1 without really breaking a sweat. Tenth Star make it two out of two in terms of high-scoring wins as they defeat Utica United in a barnstormer which saw the Osarians come back from 4-1 down to equalise, only for TSH to nick the game at the death. The 5-4 scoreline edges out Telecontare's mauling of Draig Goch in terms of the day's highest-scoring game, though most neutrals point to AC Izotz Zubia's victory over a poor Hastmead Diamante side as the biggest sign of things to come for the season. Zozi look good, Diamante not so much.

Matchday three sees 1830 Cathair held against newcomer opposition for the second time in three weeks, as Jhanna City grab a 1-1 draw. Fortunes are worse for another former LigAnaia champion, though as Hastmead make it two points from three games with a disappointing draw at home to Bob's Towing. Elsewhere, the big match between Inter and Iskara Daii ends 1-1, while Draig Goch battle out a 4-4 draw against Firewood in the most entertaining game of the weekend.

1830 Cathair go into matchday four behind the plucky newbs of Tenth Star Hasiera as the two go into Saturday's game at the Arena Kirola. Much is made of the away side's chances, and most fans are optimistic even as TSH trail 2-1 at half-time. The second half, however, sees a rout as Cathair net a further four goals to Hasiera's one, and win out 6-2. It isn't even the biggest win of the weekend, as Bob's Towing administer a similarly crushing 6-2 spanking to KT Itzalovalle. AC Izotz Zubia's 0-0 draw with Utica United rounds off a forgettable weekend for the south-east.

Elsewhere, Hastmead Diamante are still without a win after a 0-0 draw away to Shanak FC, while Inter, Iskara Daiii and Comunas all win.

Hastmead Diamante finally get a win on the board on matchday five, easing growing pressure on the gaffer by crushing Tele by three goals to one, while Tenth Star bounce back from last week's defeat by overcoming Tyrellia Titans by a score of four to two. Match of the weekend happens in Starblaydia as northerners Foxchester Raiders lose 5-4 to Osarians Firewood City, who appear to be reaping full the benefit of a new manager. Some ask if we are witnessing a “changing of the guard” among Osarian clubs, and given Hastmead’s early season struggles, it’s a fair question.

By matchday ten, the Osarian newcomers are struggling at the fot of the table, while Iskara Daii have forged an unlikely early lead.

The halfway point arrives with the league taking on a familiar shape. Audioslavian teams dominate, as they have done in most seasons, but its Tzierra’s AC Izotz Zubia that lead by a point over 1830 Cathair. Iskara Daii sit alongside the Catharans, while the presence of Inter and BT in fourth and fifth are counter to most predictions that had the Legalite clubs in mid-table obscurity for another season.
Former champions Hastmead Diamante are down in seventh, behind a resurgent Telecontare, while Cougars finish out the top eight. Firewood’s strong start appears to have slowed, suggesting it might have been just a honeymoon of sorts for D’Antoni Williams. Though they sit just three points behind local rivals Hastmead -- who are still slowly recovering from their poor start, like a hungover student on Saturday morning -- so who knows?

At the bottom, Tyrellia Titans are doing better than many expected. Titans were well adrift at the bottom of the last combined LigAnaia season yet are reasonably comfortable this season, ly a point behind twelfth place. Oljestaden, meanwhile, are a team that should be big enough to maintain mid-table season after season, yet are struggling at the foot of the table, with only Trothwands Evolution (and their frustrated fans) sitting between them and bottom.

An obscene amount of goals - 51 in all - are scored on matchday twenty-one. Among the highlights are Hastmead Diamante’s 3-2 win over league leaders AC Izotz Zubia and 1830’s 4-2 derby victory over Cazadores Cathair that propels the former to the top of the table - a position they don’t have to share thanks to Isakara Daii’s failure to beat Oljestaden IF.
Cathair maintain their lead during the following Wednesday’s midweek fixtures via victory over Jhanna City and, with both Daii and Zozi succumbing to 2-2 draws the Audioslavians sit pretty at the top of the league table. Daii are not done, however, and seven points from their next three games keep them just behind the new leaders Cathair. Neither Zozi or Hastmead are quite out of it yet, but both are running out of games to catch the leaders.

At the wrong end of the table, Shanak and Trothwands are doing little to justify their promotion to LigAnaia One, barely gathering more points between them than an apparently disappointing Firewood City side. Perspective, perhaps? Ikenna Enyeama’s job is under question at this point, especially after being given the dreaded “board vote of confidence” following the home shellacking against Foxchester Raiders. Results have not significantly improved since, though performances have… it remains to be seen whether it will be enough. The likes of Titans, Oljestaden, Jhanna and Cazadores are perhaps not so worried about their Osarian rivals in the race to escape relegation at this point.

A quirk of the fixture list means 1830 Cathair face Legalite opposition four times in a row, and while they take three wins, including strong performances against Inter and Comunas, a 3-0 reverse away to Bob's Towing - who are, by now, third and truly flying - stops them from pulling away too much at the top.

Second-placed Izotz Zubia have maintained their form, while Iskara Daii and Hastmead Diamante are struggling to stay in contention with the leaders.

At the bottom of the table, Oljestaden IF are still in peril while Shanak FC are beginning to be cut adrift -- though stubbornly refusing to sack Enyeama. Tyrelia Titans, so woeful last season, are up in fourteenth but are far from safe. Trothwands are right there behind them, freshly confident ahead of back-to-back six-pointers, following a hard fought win over fellow strugglers Cazadores.

Jitters at the top. Cathair drop points away to bottom-feeders Shanak in a drab 0-0 draw. Zozi take advantage with a close-fought win over Firewood City, but Bob's Towing can't gain ground thanks to a late strike that robs them of two points. Hastmead win to close the gap between them and the top, while Iskara Daii can only draw against Tyrellia Titans.

Iskara Daii make up that slip by travelling to Izotzazubia for matchday thirty-two and scunnering their opponents by three goals to one, denting the Audioslavians' title hopes while giving 1830 Cathair the opportunity to increase their lead at the top, which they do via a scraped 1-0 win against Foxchester Raiders. Hastmead Diamante win a five-goal thriller against a bitterly disappointed Comunas Cougars to stay within seven points of the leaders with just four games to go.

Zozi overcome Trothwands Evolution on Saturday morning to set the bar for the rest of the top six. Inter duly hit four past Cazadores to stay within seven of the second-placed Audioslavians, while Iskara Daii and Bob's Towing meet in Starblaydia and can only draw 2-2 in a result that does neither side any favours. Hastmead Diamante, just two points behind Zozi going into the weekend, put three past Foxchester Raiders on Saturday evening to keep the pressure on.

1830 Cathair go into Sunday's game knowing that a win would put them so much closer to the league championship, with just five games left to play, but Cathair never quite recover after an early Tele goal and drop all three points at a vital time.

Cathair, fighting on two fronts thanks to a very successful UICA campaign, can't handle Hastmead Diamante on matchday thirty-four and go down 1-0 in front of their own supporters. Bob's Towing can't take advantage and look to have fallen off the pace completely, but Inter can catch their countrymates with a 2-1 win over Tenth Star Hasiera. Iskara Daii take the points against Shanak, but the big test of nerve is AC Izotz Zubia's away encounter with a Jhanna side fighting to escape the relegation fight. Zozi blast their opponents 4-1 on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Starblaydia, and all of a sudden Cathair are off the top with the title in AC Izotz Zubia's hands.

1830 are shaken, and defeat away to Firewood City is their third in a row - a LigAnaia record amount of consecutive losses for the Audioslavian powerhouses. Hastmead, a point behind the reigning champions, can only level with them by drawing a winnable game against Itzalovalle and so Zozi, unbelievably, have the chance to go four points clear at the top with just three games to go. Oljestaden are duly despatched 3-1 to make that dream a reality, and the title, surely now, is heading to Izotzazubia?

Iskara Daii aren't going to let them run away with it, though, and win the Five Star Derby against Telecontare to keep touch with the leaders.

Just outside of the top four, Inter can't quite keep touch with the leaders as they draw an uneventful Tyrellia derby 0-0, while Bob's Towing can only draw with struggling Shanak by the same scoreline.

Cathair finally win again on matchday thirty-six, defeating KT Itzalovalle by a goal to nil in Saturday's mid-day kickoff, but Hastmead's 3-1 defeat of Utica United ensures that they pull two goals ahead on all-important goal-difference. Iskara Daii and Bob's Towing both win to keep the pressure on, but the big match is Sunday's crunch game between leaders Zozi and sixth-placed Inter. The men from Tyrellia score early and add a second-half second to ensure Zozi's lead is cut to just one point. It's too late for Inter to win the league - their best hope is a thin glimmer of fourth and the final CC spot - but with just two points separating the top four with two games to go, it's a four-way fight for the title.

The 4-3 win over Firewood seems to have galvanised Shanak, too, whose late surge sees them vault clear of the relegation spots. Still not safe, but the momentum is swinging their way. If they weren’t before, the bottom three must be concerned now, particularly Jhanna. At least Oljestaden can take points from the Osarians...

Cathair are in full-on celebration in midweek as they secure a place in the final of the Champions Cup, yet Zozi ensure the week is not an entirely cheerful one for the capital club as they smash five goals past Draig Goch to keep destiny in their hands going into the final day.

Zozi's win means that one or both of Iskara Daii and 1830 Cathair will find the championship out of their grasp if results don't go their way on Sunday, and unfortunately enough they are due to battle it out in Starblaydia with each other in Sunday's lunch-time kickoff.

A tense first half ends with Iskara Daii putting down a marker with an injury-time strike, and though Cathair press in the second half, they are undone by a break-away goal that steals all three points for the Starblaydis and ensures Cathair cannot retain their title with one game to play.

Sunday afternoon sees Hastmead struggle against mid-table Cazadores Cathair. The Osarians are 2-1 down at half-time, equalise midway through the second half and, in a dramatic ending, win out 3-2 to take the championship into a final-day three-way fight for supremacy.

At the bottom, Jhanna are dead, but Oljestaden hold Shanak to a draw, meaning they could yet survive, depending on final day results. Trothwands travel to The Cauldron and come home with a precious point that ensures survival. Spare a thought for Tenth Star Hasiera in the relegation battle, though. Heading into a crucial final matchday, they face a title-chasing Diamante side at the Osarians’ Black Patch Park. A defeat there would open the door for Oljestaden to survive with a draw. Who says all the drama is in the title race?

The final Saturday of the season sees all ten games kick off at the same time. Almost instantly, Hastmead Diamante are 3-0 up against a Tenth Star Hasiera side battling to avoid the drop. A fourth and fifth goal, either side of a Hasiera reply, pretty much ensures that Hastmead will finish the campaign on seventy-six points - a total that negates the large advantage in goal-difference they're about to gain.

Iskara Daii, too, are rallying, going two goals up early against Trothwands Evolution and going into the break 4-1 up.

Cathair, too, are rampant, and although the side are 'only' 2-0 up at the end of the first half, there are no real questions about whether they have what it takes to sweep aside their opponents Utica United.

The onus, then, is on AC Izotz Zubia. Zozi have the most difficult fixture in the form of a trip to Comunas Cougars, and the side can only go into the half-time interval at 0-0.

As it stands, Zozi will finish second, a point behind Hastmead and above Iskara Daii on goal difference, while Cathair will almost definitely finish a disappointing fourth.

At the bottom, the beating that Tenth Star are getting is being negated by the fact that Oljestaden are one down to Telecontare. As it stands, Oljestaden are heading for their first relegation from the LigAnaia top flight alongside Jhanna City, who are already relegated. One goal could save them though...

The second half begins with a bang as Comunas score to ensure Zozi have their work cut out for them if they want to even finish second, let alone first. The goals keep on flowing in Hastmead and Daii as the Osarian and Starblaydi powerhouses cement their victories with time to spare. Daii, by this time, know they can't win the league unless Tenth Star stage an unlikely comeback. The Audioslavians go from 6-1 to 6-2 and 6-3 to the ironic cheers of the Starblaydis, but Hastmead make it 7-3, and the Osarians go utterly apeshit when Comunas make it 2-0 against AC Izotz Zubia. Zozi are deflated, and though they do grab a goal back, it's too little too late. The mountain men have thrown away the chance to grab a third LigAnaia championship. The celebrations in Osarius are deafening as the final whistles blow: Hastmead Diamante are the LigAnaia: North East champions.

At the bottom, Oljestaden do indeed go down in a huge shock as unfancied Tenth Star and Shanak both stay up, and it's double-delight for Tenth Star as they win the SBCC. Utica United finish tenth, in the final Globe Cup spot, and they are joined in the competition by three Legalite sides - Inter, Bob's Towing and Comunas Cougars finish fifth, sixth and eighth respectively - the elves of Telecontare and Audioslavians KT Itzalovalle.

For 1830 Cathair, fourth place really isn't good enough, but their fans have cause for celebration as, on the final Saturday of season nine, they defeat Buyanese opponents Bengtsmark IF to win the LigAnaia's first ever Champions Cup. The super-cup comes a few short weeks later.

The injection of new teams was expected to revolutionise the LigAnaia; what nobody was expecting, though, was that one of those teams would ride roughshod over the rest of the league - at least for rhe first nine games. Of course, nobody told Montreal Koreana that. Nine wins from nine, including a stonker at fellow new boys Casuals Osteria, put the side from Quebec at the top of the early table, with only a close-run defeat at the hands of old hands Magnaeus City blotting their copybook. Montreal Koreana, led by Sunrisian duo of Rolando and Rolandinho (both ST) and Quebecois Nationals Pascal Park (GK), Andrew Hyun (RB) and Aaron Shin (CM), was impeccable in almost element of the game and is already marked heavy favourite to win the title.

Behind Koreana is the Fligsive FC and Magnaeus City, as well as an unusual guest in form of Crystal Mertagne, followed by Krytenian side Mercia Bronham.

Surprising name on the bottom is Trojana Condommakers FC. The defensive powerhouse, long-considered the pinnacle of money-throwing game in Quebec, had to go through key injuries to 3 of its defensive starters and Lise Hansson, leading to a much weakened team that dropped key games against Magnaeus and Crystal. They, however, do not exceed the level of appaling results by CSKA Quebec. CSKA, a traditional giant, has been nothing but horrible in the year that they’re expected to transition, especially in light of a bolstered defence but obliterated offence. What is going on there, nobody exactly knows.

The halfway point of the season gives us a single, simple question; can anyone stop the Quebecois? Not on current form, they can’t. The loss to Magnaeus may have dented their confidence a little - one point from nine - but soon, Koreana were back on song, recording seven wins on the spin. Magnaeus, meanwhile, are eleven points back despite being the only team to beat the league leaders.

Behind Magnaeus is Krytenian giant Ousevale Borough and traditional Calanian pacesetters Fligsive, followed by the Gunners and Seasiders in St.John’s and Burgess. The chase between 2nd and 6th place is still very close, and it’ll be interesting to see who will fall off the contention or keep up the game against ever-so-dangerous Koreana.

Spare a thought for Emberton Reds though. Scoring three at Burgess is no mean feat...unfortunately, it means nothing when you ship eight at the other end. They have promising talents here and there, not least Nepharim striker Michael Kellard, but can certainly improve a lot more on consistency.

With Montreal now disappearing over the horizon like some sort of cartoon prairie bird, the fight instead turns to who will finish second. Magnaeus’ five-nil tonking of Krytenia’s self-proclaimed “best club”, Ousevale Borough, looked to give them the advantage, but too many dropped points allowed Fligsive to overtake them...at least until Montreal did a number on them on Matchday 25.

Burgess, on the other hand, had to go through what’s probably their worst showing in a while, as they only won 1 game in 6 game span, a 5-1 Trojana Thrashing of Magnaeus City. Injuries to Angelo Gelinas and Sugar Glass really screwed them over on key situations, as they went through a notable scoring drought.

At the bottom meanwhile, the three teams from Ibex appear to be attempting to get themselves relegated all in one go. Rumours that this is because nobody cares about Ibex are probably unfounded. Probably.

Perhaps we spoke too soon. Montreal start dropping points left, right, and Khinjar...and suddenly, Fligsive are back in with a sniff. At least insofar as eleven points constitutes a sniff. Magnaeus, meanwhile, garner four wins in five to remain only a point further back. Ousevale are looking nailed and hard welded onto fourth spot, but the fight for fifth is consuming the entirety of the rest of the top half.

In other “shock” news, the sides from Ibex are neatly arranging themselves down at the bottom end. Which is, at least, very tidy of them. Not that that helps Zenit much...

The leaders have an unexplainable blip against relegation-threatened Sayyaf; can Fligsive take advantage?



No. No they cannot. Silly Fligsive. Hazel Van Zanten, the 18-year old Quebecois phenom with 26 goals, got ejected after an offside call led the star to do an armbar at the referee. It was a very pleasurable sight to watch, but didn’t do Fligsive a favour as they went on to draw the match. Montreal can almost taste the title now.

Fligsive’s season goes from not great to even less great as they begin hitting reverse gear. Two consecutive defeats allows Magnaeus to steal second, and if the season had gone one longer it’s likely that Ousevale would have come charging past as well. The Tigers will be seeing fourth place as a springboard to better things (and an excuse to start waving the chequebook at some big name players).

At the bottom, meanwhile, it all boiled down to a make-or-break game between Sayyaf and Casuals Osteria. With the Krytenians needing to win by three clear goals to overtake their Ibexian rivals, Liam Larsson and company went in all guns blazing, went four-one up, looked set to overtake Seyyaf...then collectively brainfarted in defence and will be heading to the R49 next season, unless the first full moon of the new season is on a Tuesday, or the Audioslavians in charge of this mess decide to make things even more complicated. They’re joined by the hapless Zenit and the frankly hopeless Batal.

Montreal Koreana (QUE)
vs
Hastmead Diamante (OSR)

From the 66 Stadium, Cathair, Audioslavia

(OSR)                Hastmead Diamante p 2–2   Montreal Koreana                 (QUE)
Cawdor 37' Shin 19', 61'
Crespo 78'
2-2 after extra time. Hastmead Diamante win 10-9 on penalties


Heartbreaking for Koreana, as Ringer Toso-Toso's slip costs them the Championship final. The Chiatan's mis-step as he took his penalty meant his shot struck the bar, instead of beating Rosie Munro, after a thoroughly entertaining two hours of football, befitting such a game. LigAnaia's inaugural grand final promised much, and Aaron Shin's double had the Quebecois side -- champions of LigAnaia Calania -- in front and seemingly in control with half an hour to go.

Hastmead boss Benni Watson decided to put his faith in youth, throwing Esteban Crespo into the mix to replace the tiring legs of Elliot Francis. Behind him, Daniele Gentile eased the pressure on Costello and Ashdown, providing an outlet that Louis Porter simply does not offer. Crespo did not disappoint, rising highest to power a header beyond Park in the seventy-eighth minute, off Andrea Cawdor's sublime cross.

Extra time could not separate the two teams, though neither looked content to hear the final whistle, knowing that penalties awaited. Despite their apprehensions, both teams were clinical from the spot, scoring all nineteen of their spot-kicks until Toso-Toso slipped on the rain-slicked turf at the moment of striking.

A cruel defeat, but Hastmead won't care.

SEASON TEN

Postby COCANEFA » Sat Oct 10, 2015 2:57 pm

LigAnaia: Season Ten
The Clubs

Image


Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Last Five Seasons: 4, 3, 1, 4, 1
Marcus Williams (G, 23, OSR), Rosie Munro (G, 27, OSR), Will Simpson (D, 19, OSR), India Turner (D, 23, OSR), Julian Collingwood (D, 25, BRE), Matjas Nordland (D, 25, SEM), Melinda Rubio (D, 27, OSR), Emmeline Mariconda (D, 28, OSR), Drý Szânjêý (D, 29, FFD), Marcel Cirocco (D, 29, OSR), Daniele Gentile (M, 19, OSR), Demetrio Constantini (M, 20, OSR), Louis Porter (M, 24, DRV), Elaine Ashdown (M, 25, NPH), Nicola Costello (M, 26, OSR), Fer Rôncö (M, 29, FFD), Esteban Crespo (F, 20, OSR), Elliot Francis (F, 22, JEC), Ryan Watson (F, 17, OSR), Jorit van Kruistum (F, 25, PAS)
Last season’s triumph was perhaps a little bit unexpected, given the nature of the squad -- in transition, apparently -- and their questionable start. It appears, however, that their much-vaunted academy is finally producing the right kind of player on a regular basis. The emergence of Crespo, Gentile and Constantini has given the gaffer a nice platform on which to build future title-challenging sides and he’s not likely to waste the opportunity. The failure to bring Fabio Mancini home will sting, but the emergence of talented teenage duo Will Simpson and Ryan Watson only adds to fans’ hopes. The two -- both capable as fullback and winger on either side -- come from notable pedigree, having a father and grandfather who have captained the national side respectively. While Simpson has pushed along well, Watson is still waiting for his first senior appearance in orange. Two goals for Osarius U20s will have helped his case, and serve only to compound the feel-good factor in Carbonia of late.

Watson would never outright claim his side to be favourites but he’s likely quietly confident, after having trimmed the dross from his squad and investing in such promising youngsters. If there’s a question to ask of this team, it’s whether or not they can rely on two forwards under the age of 23 to consistently get them the goals they will need. The gaffer certainly thinks so, after letting his other senior forwards leave… he’s not often wrong about young players, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that this time his faith in youth could be a fatal error.

Iskara Daii (STB)
Last Five Seasons: 6, 8, 2, 7, 2
Bognár Lukacs (G, 26, PAS), Jack Parkor (D, 22, APX), Ramon Goicoechea (D, 22, AUD), Inbekira Ajhabekk (D, 22, VIL), Finimolo Juez (D, 29, AUD), Naphtali Thatcher (M, 21, BRE), Callum Shont (M, 24, LGL), Marquinhos Carnavalense (M, 24, NSI), Jan Macik (M, 26, PAS), Ansel Bone (M, 26, TAE), Holden Earp (M, 26, TAE), Guillermo Di Luca (M, 35, NSI), Joord Rietveld (F, 18, AUD), Zachariah Ferraz (F, 20, AUD), Owen Knob (F, 24, NDP)
The Daii are legendary. The oldest and most prestigious of Starblaydia’s domestic clubs, the former club of Simeone di Bradini, the x-time Starblaydi champions. The modern team haven’t quite stood as tall as their shadow, but if last season’s march to second place is anything to go by, they are ready at history’s door with a big massive axe in hand.

The Daii have not fared too well in UICA competition thus far, but the current side seems well placed to mount a challenge.

AC Izotz Zubia
Last Five Seasons: 1, 2, 6, 6, 3
Abraham Terrazas (G, 24, SJG), Niels Roijacker (D, 18, AUD), Ortzi Rouy (D, 19, AUD), Patrick Courtois (D, 28, VLD), Orson Faulkner (D, 29, BRE), Susan Endicott (D, 32, APX), Morlaithan Aldamiel (D, Elf, VAL), Txordinutzko Etxehartzaren (M, 18, AUD), Fabio Mancini (M, 22, OSR), Sterling Rose (M, 24, EUR), Decimus Bresko (M, 27, LGL), Aaron Aiza (M, 28, EQS), Vass Adrián (M, 28, PAS), Etamara Kulkkiia (M, 29, TUR), Jose-Luis Aurrekoetxea (F, 17, AUD), Frantzisko Apexarena (F, 18, AUD), Tanya Bottlegreen (F, 26, NPH), Nazeau Roga (F, 33, FFD), Lairelaerion Tinuviel (F, Elf, VAL)
Football in Audioslavia has two main hotbeds - Cathair in the centre and the mountainous Tzierra region to the south-east, and if 1830 are the kings of Cathair, there’s no doubt which team have claimed the title of ‘King of the Mountains’ in recent years. ‘Zozi’, usually resplendent in their trademark ‘silver and salmon’’ (grey and pink to you and me) hoops, are two-time LigAnaia champions. 1830 Cathair are the club’s biggest rivals, but Zozites differ on who their local rivals are, as there are a slew of local clubs to choose from. KT Ferrmendiak, KT Moreazerua and KT Itzalovalle are the biggest teams from the region, but its the latter who have been closest to Zozi in recent years.

The team itself are strong, if not quite as strong on paper as the Catharan champions. Goalkeeper Abraham Terrazas has proved himself a calm head between the sticks in recent years, despite his youth. That calmness could be down to the strength of the defence, lead by club captain Patrick Courtois, talented Apoxian Susan Endicott and local hero Orson Faulkner, he of the championship-winning goal in season five. A strong four-man midfield has been the motor behind Zozi’s success in recent years, and with Osarian international Fabio Mancini joining the likes of Sterling Rose and Etamara Kulkkiia in an overpowered engine room, the odds are in favour of Izotz Zubia improving on last season’s third place finish.

1830 Cathair (AUD)
Last Five Seasons: 5, 1, 3, 1, 4
Kiki Nuremberg (G, 30, FEL), Bruce Millar (G, 40, ZWZ), Solvir Ulvestad (D, 18, AUD), Jouard Caceres (D, 20, AUD), Bastijn Fokke-Rommedahl (D, 22, AUD), Ulrika Kinlasson (D, 25, APX), Andrea Molovi (D, 34, EQS), Kohev Küngas-Vaga (D, 37, PIS), Ruisheart Wight (M, 20, AUD), Lenka Randáková (M, 27, PAS), Jaime del Olmo (M, 28, CEN), Wilfred Lidgley (M, 32, APX), Dandra Harris (M, 32, EAR), Cyrus Damhan (M, 36, LGL), Dragan Kryznjak (F, 18, AUD), Romelio Ceballos (F, 21, PAS), Rauno Bickermann (F, 25, PIS), Rodolfo Zelaya (F, 26, SJG)
Hailing from the well-to-do Grand Forum sector of Cathair, the fashionable capital club 1830 Cathair have a rich history, being one of the first football clubs in all of Audioslavia, but their modern incarnation has seen them portrayed somewhat as spoiled rich kids, throwing money at some of the league’s smaller clubs in order to hoover up local talent. Cathair’s local rivals are traditionally the west-Cathair side Shamrock Cathair, but a decline in fortunes for the men in green, and the resurgence of previously unfashionable Cazadores Cathair, from the eastern docklands area of the city, has seen the Caza-Catha derby rise to infamy as one of the most fierce in Atlantian Oceania,

The sale of Styrn and Caszely, the side’s main strikers, in return for Polarian goal machine Rauno Bickermann has been the subject of many a debate all over Cathair. There’s no doubting Bickermann’s prowess, but is swapping two world class players for just one in return really the way forward? Time will tell. The midfield of Kinlasson, del Olmo and living-legend Wilfred Lidgley are the heart of the side, which will also rely on world cup winning wing-back Lenka Randáková for width. In defence, Andrea Molovi will be joined by new signings Jouard Caceres and, in perhaps the shock of the summer transfer window, another Polarian legend in the guise of Kohev Kungas-Vaga - he of the winning goal that wrenched the final of World Cup 67 away from Audioslavia.

Kungas-Vaga joins the team that took home both the UICA Champions Cup and UICA Super Cup last season - the first of any such trophy to be won by a team in the LigAnaia. Cathair will look to gain some measure of domestic silverware that eluded them last year.

International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Last Five Seasons: 13, 7, 10, 9, 5
Alexander Salmi (G, 34, LGL), Vlad Gaznayev (D, 23, PIS), Ed Staudt (D, 27, LGL), Arlen Massay (D, 34, LGL), Kenny Stroud (D, 37, LGL), Rheged Beuchler (D, 37, LGL), Gianna Spahn (M, 21, GLX), Wilhelm Lojdahl (M, 25, PIS), Oliver Ábrego (M, 26, SJG), Jaylin Cavin (M, 36, LGL), Urúvolë Faelandaerl (M, Elf, VAL), Bigode (F, 21, WSI), Ben Lintone (F, 28, MRT), Appius Howey (F, 34, LGL), Nixon Tremaine (F, 36, LGL)
International of Tyrellia are one of the powerhouses of Legalite football, but have thus far failed to truly impress in the LigAnaia. Fans of the club have lowered their expectations in recent years, content with Globe Cup qualification and a decent showing in UICA’s secondary competition. Their success may depend on how the side continue to cope without Cyrus Damhan, the Legalite legend who left for 1830 Cathair.

Bobs Towing (LGL)
Last Five Seasons: 16, 12, 14, 14, 6
Andrew Maisenbacher (G, 29, LGL), Cody Polka (D, 24, LGL), Keefe Warburton (D, 28, LGL), Gibson Baires (D, 36, LGL), Brayden Champy (M, 23, LGL), Chance Cloman (M, 28, LGL), Cade Zorich (M, 30, LGL), Gus Tokkesdal (F, 23, LGL), Finley Beaumier (F, 34, LGL)
Bob’s Towing are perhaps the most bizarrely named of the LigAnaia’s Legalite representatives, but the side are one with the most interesting story behind them. Back in Legal Year 258 (2135 for the Audioslavians reading), the outfit sprung up as a youth team, when the Darland brothers, Jimmy and Vincent, convinced their father, Robert, to have his service station sponsor their youth team. As such, the name emblazoned on their shirt read Bob’s Towing. Jimmy turned out to be good enough to keep his friends in the game, as the club moved up from recreational youth play, to local pub leagues, to becoming a semi-professional force, enough to earn an invite into the national championship program, as well as full sponsorship from Gamma Apparel, also based in Plainsview. Despite winning the first National Championship, the fortunes of Towing have sagged of late, with the Darlands now relegated to the front office. It is up to manager Casnar Golt to turn their fortunes around, before their story remains just an old memory.

Telecontare (STB)
Last Five Seasons: 7, 10, 11, 10, 7
Bancinithor Shalandalan (G, Elf, VAL), Learithien Kevadhrinthor (G, Elf, VAL), Arlanon Ondoviel (D, Elf, VAL), Athilond Aldalithe (D, Elf, VAL), Elthanthon Culynndal (D, Elf, VAL), Indóien Mavanta (D, Elf, VAL), Tathârian Lassyail (D, Elf, VAL), Tienuionnar Toraagaar (D, Elf, VAL), Airaaias Cromvathar (M, Elf, VAL), Airadir Tanglinaiel (M, Elf, VAL), Belohóle Vantauré (M, Elf, VAL), Edenien Galadel (M, Elf, VAL), Maethas Nellaryl (M, Elf, VAL), Valdaguionnar Mithlothion (M, Elf, VAL), Vanamelien Toralasyr (M, Elf, VAL), Dûrdur Celetholtinu (F, Elf, VAL), Gondion Norodhen(F, Elf, VAL), Laaddon Kevatanian (F, Elf, VAL), Valrauncion (F, Elf, KRY)
Starblaydia has a very large immigrant population, and each and every one of them would be up in arms if we didn’t include Telecontare in the list of contenders. The Tabeck outfit are former winners of the Liga Calania - one of the LigAnaia’s spiritual ancestors - and the richness of their support is matched only by that of their bank accounts, but the team endured a torrid first two seasons in the LigAnaia, almost being relegated after their first season and falling away drastically in the second half of season four. There are some who suggest the side are a shadow of their former glories, but as any of the team’s elven contingent (ie pretty much all of them) will tell you, it takes more than a little rain to dull elvish steel. It also takes a little more than a few seasons of mid-table football to affect their bank accounts. Tele pulled off the biggest money deal in the summer transfer window, prizing away Krytenian/Starblaydi legend Valrauncion from Ousevale Borough for upwards of seventy million dollars. Fans await the new season with baited breath. Could this be their year?

Comunas Cougars (LGL)
Last Five Seasons: 10, 9, 7, 3, 8
Emmett Celis (G, 24, LGL), Kieran Ciccarone (G, 25, LGL), Morrissey Beaudine (G, 29, LGL), Gnaeus Shoobridge (D, 28, LGL), Gruffudd Masters (D, 28, LGL), Kellen Grubbs (D, 28, LGL), Julian Crowther (D, 34, LGL), Gaius Goldrich (M, 24, LGL), Ardal Miners (M, 28, LGL), Christian Linman (M, 29, LGL), Armando Woernle (M, 31, LGL), Dominic Morgenthaler (F, 25, LGL), Jake Detzler (F, 28, LGL)
Comunas Cougars exploded onto the scene in season four - the freshmen year for Legalite clubs in the LigAnaia - and finished in third place, qualifying for the Champions Cup and being unlucky not to place higher. The next season, however, saw a rapid fall from grace. Cougars’ form deteriorated rapidly at the start of the year and the side never really clawed their way back, finishing down in tenth place - only just enough for a Globe Cup place. Previous seasons have seen some rebuilding, but the side are usually loathe to spend money in the transfer window and one feels that, without an influx of money and players, the Legalite powerhouses may well struggle again to break the top five again.

KT Itzalovalle (AUD)
Last Five Seasons: 9, 11, 13, 11, 9
Txordin Ybarra (G, 20, AUD), Ryan Great (G, 38, TSA), Turi Varisco (D, 23, AUD), Txo Zubudazkenean (D, 24, AUD), Kevin Wazockry (D, 25, APX), Hermann Fisher (D, 33, APX), Norman Burke (D, 34, OSR), Harry Xafagoulis (M, 27, APX), Adam Cooper (M, 27, GLX), Dylan Wells (M, 27, GLX), Ager Alaba (M, 28, ASG), Onésime Rios (M, 30, YTT), Mezei Orbán (M, 31, PAS), Escobar de Cabanyas (F, 21, AUD), Guillaume Chanoure (F, 27, SEM), Kenzo Temporuin (F, 28, NSI), Eidur Kartashkov-Martinenko (F, 32, POL)
KT Itzalovalle have positioned themselves as Audioslavia’s third best team, having been one of the few ever-presents in the top division and with a string of Globe Cup qualifications under their belt. The side have occasionally struggled in recent seasons, not least due to the erratic form of $12m flop Anderson Sandro up front, but with Sandro long gone and new arrivals Xafagoulis, Wazockry and Chanoure seemingly in fine form, fans are optimistic for the current season. Nevertheless, 'Itzi' are, without a doubt, the second club in the Tzierra region behind Zozi.

Utica United (OSR)
Last Five Seasons: Div2, Div2, Div2, Div2, 10
Blaise N'Zonzi (G, 25, SEM), Phil Dornell (G, 26, MRT), Dante Crescento (D, 22, OSR), Jorge Santana (D, 22, OSR), Bradley Porter (D, 23, OSR), Roman Linares (D, 24, OSR), Elena Ortiz (D, 26, OSR), Rodrigo Sevilla (D, 27, OSR), Alan Drummond (M, 20, OSR), Nathan Henstridge (M, 23, ERS), Damian Munoz (M, 23, OSR), Graciela Zamora (M, 25, OSR), Alvaro Puente (M, 26, KRS), Yohannes Marcussen (M, 27, SEM), Séraphin Török (F, 19, FFD), Ashley Saunders (F, 20, OSR), Shafqat Tariq (F, 22, PAT), Eusebio Chavez (F, 24, OSR), Ysabel Ortiz (F, 27, OSR), Jefferson Madera (F, 28, AQL), Octavio Madera (F, 28, OSR), Sê Brêgoô (F, 29, FFD)
At the first time of asking, Utica snatched a UICA berth which Firewood City likely felt was theirs by right -- they are not only the most storied Osarian club in history, but they have also toiled away in LigAnaia for some time, after all -- and will feel no remorse doing so. Indeed, there will be much gloating when the sides meet in Tubriss this season. But Utica fans will need to be careful not to let it go to their heads. The ambitious group of youngsters assembled by Ruben Contreras is aging, and according to their normal approach, some of the squad should be cut loose as they approach the end of their 20s. But not this time. The decision to defy “tradition” is a massive risk for the beloved Tamarindo, who became a naturalised Osarian years ago, and he needs it to work out.

In order to maintain the faith of the fans, he is relying heavily on the talented youngsters he does have at his disposal, to support those aging legs. Apparently none moreso than Alan Drummond. The nephew of former national team superstar Toby had a strong debut LigAnaia season -- considering he was still not yet twenty -- and will now be expected to kick on and progress even further. Especially given the added support he now has in the form of Séraphin Török most notably. Much like Firewood, Utica has had to be frugal of late, and rely on cut price signings for the most part. Török was not one of those signings. The fee was not announced, but the expectation from the fans was that the teenager would adapt quickly and give Utica the “x factor” they need in the final third -- rather than reliance on their aging stars and two under 21 internationals -- so it seems likely that, at the first chance, he will be thrown in at the deep end, as they say. If so, Utica’s season may ultimately rest on whether or not he can swim. Some fans will argue he has already had a year to learn.


Firewood City (OSR)
Last Five Seasons: 18, 17, 20, 15, 11
Trent Baird (G, 23, OSR), Gianluca Bottego (G, 26, OSR), Jallerrhé Ljungman (D, 19, FFD), Olivier Thierault (D, 20, AUD), Nino Pellegrini (D, 23, OSR), Akio Sweet (D, 24, BAR), Daniel Kruse (D, 24, NPH), Violetta Trimboli (D, 25, OSR), Scout Given (D, 26, BRE), Theodore Prince (D, 28, OSR), Ralph Long (M, 22, OSR), Kath Boston (M, 26, NPH), Neil Wright (M, 27, OSR), Juan Pablo Reyes (M, 28, VLD), Pedro Pedretti (M, 28, VLD), Willis Finchley (M, 30, DRV), Riccardo Carbone (F, 19, OSR), Scott Duncan (F, 22, OSR), Malcolm Aitken (F, 23, OSR), Mohammed Essa (F, 24, PAT), Darell Marshall (F, 28, OSR), Tobias Clarke (F, 29, OSR)
Last season, the first under the new east/west format, should have been the time for Firewood to step up into the Globe Cup places after years of underachievement. That Utica United pipped them to that spot rankles among the Firewood faithful -- it’s doubtful they can keep singing about that Champions Cup win for much longer if they keep slipping. The Fire, however, will look to make amends this season. Much like their northern rivals Hastmead, Firewood have gotten rid of some of the deadwood in their squad, and added a few players of potential use. Most notably Scout Given has proven to be a significant upgrade at fullback, while Theriault offers some depth and steel in a questionable defence. Jallerrhé Ljungman arrived quietly last summer -- it’s notable that Firewood have not revealed his cost, though their relative frugality elsewhere suggests that the days of obscenely expensive marquee signings might be over; as befits a club without UICA football -- and the Farf will face some difficulty dislodging Essa, or even overtaking the impressive Carbone in the pecking order, but he could turn out to be Williams’ secret weapon as his side battles its way back up the table.

Most notable of late is Firewood’s investment in youth for their ‘B’ team -- six notably talented teenagers from the Sunrisian street football league were signed to Firewood City Stars -- suggesting that Williams appears to have resigned himself to mid-table anonymity in the short term, but has a long-term plan to topple his old club as Osarius’ premier club side. It’s becoming difficult to see how long he will have for that plan to bear fruit however. An improvement is needed in Firewood. And quickly.

Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Last Five Seasons: 22, Div2, 19, 22, 12
Evan Swales (G, 36, LGL), Jamie Scotton (D, 24, LGL), Matthew Lyness (D, 24, LGL), Christopher Rubenzer (D, 25, LGL), Runar Wilbech (D, 25, PIS), Marten Belanov (D, 29, PIS), Diego Gazitano (M, 24, LGL), Ruben Ribb (M, 27, LGL), Jess Sanderson (M, 31, BRE), Kai Suriel (M, 33, LGL), Ghani Yousuf (F, 26, PAT), Quintus Oxboro (F, 27, LGL), Daniel Moralidad (F, 32, TRB)
Titans’ twelfth place last season was received as something of a minor miracle. The side, poor relations of local rivals International of Tyrellia since the Legalite teams entered the LigAnaia, had finished rock bottom of the top flight in season eight, but avoided relegation thanks entirely to the arrivals of Krytenia and Quebec and the subsequent bisecting of the LigAnaia. Titans grabbed their second chance and ran with it, and there are some whispers that the side, despite two bottom-finishes in the last five years, may be on course to do better this time out.

Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Last Five Seasons: 19, 18, 16, 19, 13
Pablo Llorente (G, 24, AUD), Serge Rollins (G, 33, AUD), Edgar Ambrose (D, 21, YTT), Rami Levinsky (D, 28, AUD), Joseph Venus (D, 32, AUD), Arndu Farsgaard (D, 32, COS), James Courageous (D, 33, AUD), Loloala Izmao (M, 18, AUD), Lutheromano Reigns (M, 18, WSI), Baldo Gabbard (M, 19, YTT), Vilhelm Bacarde (M, 19, YTT), Cibran Zambrano (M, 23, AUD), Rohan Cammers (M, 32, APX), Georgios Kokinos (M, 36, FEL), Juancarlos de Sierra (F, 21, AUD), Ichiio Tupper (F, 25, MRT), Jonathan Faña (F, 31, SJG), Rook Cathar (F, 32, NPH)
In Cathair, the second club right now is Cazadores Cathair, poor relations of 1830 Cathair and a team who have a habit of hemorrhaging their best players to their cross-city rivals. RJ Styrn and Espiridon Caszely have both flown the roost in recent years, albiet for a fair amount of money, and Cazadores have generally struggled to keep pace especially as their conveyor-belt of youth talent appears to have gone on the blink in recent years

Cazadores Cathair are a side most Audioslavian neutrals - ie, those Audioslavians not living in Cathair, Oljestaden or Tzierra, whose constituent football clubs dominate the Audioslavian footballing landscape - can get behind. Cazadores, based on the eastern outskirts of the capital city, have long played a brand of exciting, attacking football, and despite their lack of resources have been more than capable of mixing it with the big boys since their first season in the top flight. Season after season of battles against relegation gave way to last year’s flirtation with the fringe of the Globe Cup spots, and the side will look to kick on this season. All they’ll have to make sure of is that rowdy duo Rook Cathar and Rohan Cammers can be kept out of trouble, both on and off the field.

Draig Goch (LGL)
Last Five Seasons: Div2, Div2, 21, Div2, 14
Gianni Saini (G, 38, LGL), Daphine Moncrief (D, 20, KRN), Shichiro Taki (D, 20, NSI), Juca Pitanguinha (D, 22, WSI), Sami Mbarra (D, 23, SEM), Hayes Carvallo (D, 28, LGL), Tyler Okonski (D, 35, LGL), Karlo Jansen (M, 22, SEM), Cathal Lotridge (M, 24, LGL), Payton Sappah (M, 24, LGL), Satordi Axpe (M, 31, AUD), Slade Brahm (M, 36, LGL), Glanglad Lassansyr (M, Elf, VAL), Titus Leopolo (F, 31, LGL), Lorenzo Blondeau (F, 35, AUD)
Draig Goch's only previous foray into top flight LigAnaia football had resulted in abject failure, but last season's fourteenth place was a great result for an oft maligned team. This season? Who knows, but there are plenty in Legalese who hold out hope of a few upsets here and there, and maybe an appearance in next season's Globe Cup.

Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Last Five Seasons: 18, 17, 20, 15, 15
Wim de Snaaijer (G, 18, AUD), Martin Carlsson (D, 21, SEM), Yuroichi Shimada (D, 24, NSI), Rochedo Camargo (D, 24, WSI), Anders Weiss (D, 32, PIS), Kievan Stuart (M, 20, AUD), Virgil Alderesi (M, 25, MRT), Bic Morandi (M, 28, MRT), Matt Kilgallon (M, 30, BRE), Johnny Jones (M, 30, SCV), Kurtis Armstrong (M, 31, BRE), Quinto Juez (F, 27, AUD), Miles Rinaldi (F, 27, MRT), Leon Proffisalle (F, 33, MRT)
Back when the LigAnaia was just a glint in the eyes of the north-east’s governing bodies, Foxchester Raiders were busy cutting swathes through world football. The Starblaydi powers, resplendent in their traditional blue and orange, reached the final of the Champions Cup in UICA season 33, and were one of the Liga Calania’s top sides before the league eventually disbanded. Today’s Foxchester are a rather different beast, and have spent the majority of their LigAnaia existence cowering in the shadows of the likes of Magnaeus, Zozi and the Daii. Their best days may well be behind them, and money may well be scarce, but a side as big as this cannot be discounted in future seasons.

Trothwands Evolution (OSR)
Last Five Seasons: Div3, Div3, Div3, Div2, 16
Clayton Hart (G, 20, OSR), Annabeth Kudlowski (G, 35, SLL), Enzo Bianchi (D, 19, OSR), Rinaldo Rizzi (D, 19, OSR), Mauro Messieri (D, 25, OSR), Jacinta Palacios (D, 26, OSR), Nathaniel Porter (D, 27, OSR), Jacob Pandan (D, 29, COS), Michael Lee (D, 29, OSR), Antonio Zapata (M, 19, OSR), Lauro Tedesco (M, 19, OSR), Greg Reid (M, 25, OSR), Marcos Espinosa (M, 27, OSR), Elena Varela (M, 31, OSR), Sara Neshek (M, 33, SLL), Darik Samuels (F, 21, OSR), Jerome Monroe (F, 21, OSR), Theodora Covenant (F, 23, NPH), Brandon McKenzie (F, 26, OSR), Faustino Baroni (F, 27, OSR)
All the talk of having earned their spot quickly died when Evo struggled desperately in LigAnaia last season. Despite losing the promising Gustavo Feliciano, Evo’s reliance on the teenager at times was detrimental to the progress of all parties, it seemed, and the midfielder will likely fare better in San Jose Guayabal… just like Evo should fare better without him. It was not so. Jonathan Herd all but admitted that his side were not strong enough at the end of the season, but what was he to do? With limited funds, strengthening the squad was always going to be difficult, leaving him to fall back on the old managerial cliche of an injured player’s return being “like a new signing”. Last year’s marquee signing Theodora Covenant -- who easily ranks among the club’s most expensive ever signings -- was supposed to be the player on the end of the crosses of the supremely talented Monroe and Samuels, scoring the required goals. But Covenant struggled with injury, and Evo had questionable cover at best. She’s back, but it remains to be seen whether she really is the answer.

Herd’s lower league experience has made him extremely adept at spotting players who, with little fanfare and little exposure, can do a very effective job for him, but last year there was strife. Herd would argue it was an adaptation period… but many are skeptical. Rightly so. However, unlike their richer compatriots, Evo simply cannot afford to buy decent cover at most positions, and are heavily reliant on their youth academy. While it has churned out some talents in recent years, it doesn’t seem likely to magically produce the answer(s) to Herd’s problems this year. With so many of Herd’s signings still unproven, and no up-and-coming youngsters to fill the gaps, he could be facing the axe come mid-season. On the other hand, given his track record in the transfer market… he may also end up being in line for receipt of the key to Trothwands.

Shanak FC (AUD)
Last Five Seasons: Div 2, Div 3, Div 2, Div 2, 17
Chukwu Igbeze (G, 20, OSR), Kieran Schrader (G, 36, NPH), Eric Webster (D, 23, OSR), Marquez Sbangunu (D, 23, SEM), Casim Maxwell (D, 26, OSR), Isla Foley (D, 27, OSR), Troy Morrison (D, 27, OSR), Lalia Teobaldo (D, 28, OSR), Rodney Day (D, 28, OSR), Elias Hansson-Goldberg (D, 28, SEM), Bonifacio Mariani (D, 30, OSR), Jeffrey Hayes (M, 25, OSR), Marcellino Teobaldo (M, 26, OSR), Zachary Hughes (M, 26, OSR), Gina McManus (M, 29, OSR), Angelica Capiello (M, 35, OSR), Aaliyah Johnson (F, 20, OSR), Alex O'Hara (F, 23, OSR), Ryan Coyle (F, 27, OSR), Orson Kerraway (F, 29, SLL), Giorgia Caruso (F, 31, OSR)
Shanak struggled in their first season of top flight LigAnaia football, but in truth they performed well beyond expectation in avoiding relegation back down to the second flight. The current crop of players may find this season more difficult, with injuries mounting up amongst an already thin squad.

Tout-Puissant Hasiera (AUD)
Last Five Seasons: Div 2, Div 2, Div 2, 21, Div 2
Jean-Alec Faberge (G, 25, AUD), Batmacumba (G, 26, DAI), Shane Stoppelbei (D, 19, YTT), Pierluigi Buonocunto (D, 23, AUD), Paolo Cirrincione (D, 24, AUD), Rocco Rengifo (D, 27, LGL), Yves de la Croix (D, 34, AUD), Armaedhhon Rololinde (D, Elf, VAL), Flortentin Lachance (M, 22, AUD), Renaud Marchand (M, 23, AUD), Johnjo Wharton (M, 27, AUD), Michael Kubesh (M, 36, LGL), Eicinyondur Kialvarin (M, Elf, VAL), Kolbruk Keinensson (F, 31, SEM), Jaurtiketa Buruz (F, 34, AUD)

Hasiera is traditionally more famous for its avante-gard arts and music scenes, it’s annoying insistence on speaking French and for being the chosen city-break resort for the millions of Audioslavians living just north in the Tzierran mountains, but government funding and a steady influx of Syndicatian immigration has turned the city into a burgeoning hub of football, with it’s two evenly matched teams, Tout-Puissant Hasiera and Tenth Star Hasiera (T.P.H. and T.S.H. to casuals, ‘tuff’ and ‘tush’ to locals) both becoming favourites among the massive hipster population in the city. The last few seasons have seen a cycle of one of the city’s team making it to the top flight for one single season before immediate relegation, to be replaced with the other soon after. ‘Tuff’ will look to arrest that record this season by staying out of the bottom half of the table.

Grasshoppers Turic (OSR)
Last Five Seasons: Div 3, Div 3, Div 2, Div 2, Div 2
DaMarcus Bender (G, 35, COS), Nicolas Janzaard (D, 26, SEM), Karoliina Lahtinen (M, 25, COS), Ragge Bielvenstramm (M, 29, POL), Mikhailo Pettersen (F, 21, POL), Lily Stanton (F, 27, SLL)
The Grasshoppers are preparing to enjoy their first season of LigAnaia football

Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Last Five Seasons: Div 2, Div 2, 22, Div 2, Div 2
Corinthians are back for their third stint in the LigAnaia's top flight. The side, modestly successful historically, are more famous in modern times for their insistence that their leading of the LigAnaia after ten games, seven seasons ago, was not a fluke. They were relegated that season. Still, the yellows are in high spirits as we come to the first matchday of the season, and are quietly confident that they can stay in the top flight for more than their customary one season stint.

Montreal Koreana (QUE)
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 1
The Kingdom's marquee club ran amok in season nine, winning the LigAnaia: Calania title at a canter but coming up short in the grand finale against Hastmead Diamante. Strong off their championship season, they bring vast majority of their starters back. This team is by all means solid in almost all aspects. Their defence and goalkeepers are all responsible and mature, while highly-talented rookie Philip-Michel Schneiderlin is expected to join in Koreana's formidable midfield. While they are once again expected to dominate on ball possession, their issues remain on front, however, as Joe Ringer-Toso retired last season. Their only options on offence being highly-coveted Rolando and Rolandhino Juliano, they will be heavily pressed to find their final link on offence on their farm. Expect them to struggle scoring for a while, denying them the title this season.

Magnaeus City (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: 3 4 5 2 2
Magnaeus are a mystery. Why? Well, for example, the side have zero silverware. No league titles, no cups, not even a minor trophy. They have tended to outperform rivals Burgess FC since the LigAnaia began, but have never truly looked like potential champions.

Magnaeus are, however, very good when it comes to foreign opposition, and the side have always been one of the highest-ranked of the LigAnaia’s UICA competitors - a point they stamped home when they replaced 1830 Cathair as the #1 ranked side in UICA football last season and took home their first AOCL Cup.

Fligsive FC (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: 2 6 4 5 3
Fligsive are, so far, the only Calanion side to have won the LigAnaia, having done so in season three. Fligsive have gone from strength to strength in UICA competition, but the side’s league form, however, has dropped off in recent years. The side had a run of four finishes in the top two at one point - usually coming up through the table with a late charge - but a sixth-placed finish in season six was nothing short of disaster. That Fligsive have failed to finish in the top three in the last three seasons is a point of contention for the fans.

Fligsive are, once again, in the Champions Cup this season. It remains to be seen how strong the team will be this year.

Ousevale Borough (KRY)
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 4
Ousevale are, quite simply, the name in Krytenian football. The former club champions of the world are famous for their “United Nations” team of many years ago, when the likes of Valrauncion, Ricky Sexton, Piran Hean, and Michael Willem gave migraines to the globe. Admittedly, the club may not have quite the international flavour of the past, and Trevor Spencer’s property and construction empire means his wallet has, in recent years, been notably less crammed than the Swann coffers, but the sale of Valrauncion to Telecontare - for a cool 80 million dollars - may well lubricate Ousevale's transfer engine for this season, wherein they expect to usurp Montreal Koreana to take home the championship.

Burgess FC (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: 8 5 8 8 5
Burgess FC’s runners-up place in the inaugural LigAnaia season was supposed to be a statement of intent, according to their fans. To be fair, it more or less was: they haven’t won the league in any other season either. The men in sky-blue and yellow have bounced around the top ten in recent seasons, never finishing lower than eighth, or higher than fifth, or in any other position, actually, but for a side with aspirations of league and UICA silverware, merely ‘competing’ isn’t enough. For Burgess, qualification for the Champions Cup is their aim once again - one they’ve missed every season bar season one.

The good news for Burgess, of course is the high placement of the Calanian Union football association in the UICA rankings. TCU clubs have a minimum of three clubs heading towards the CC next season, which is one of the reasons Burgess are in the Champions Cup despite finishing eighth in the last two seasons. Burgess may be aiming high, but even missing out on a top-five finish won’t hurt the team - as long as they can stay above the likes of Century Mertagne and Westonbirt City.

Avidia United (KRY)
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 6
The men from Krytenia’s second city have always been the quiet ones in Krytie football. Originally known as AFC Avidia, the Eagles lived long in the shadows of their cross-city rivals, Avidia City. A name change and a couple of lucky breaks later, Avidia United won the O-League, the Globe Cup, and immortality in Krytenian domestic football. The current side isn’t expecting to surpass those feats (yet), but they’ll be hard to break down.

Century Mertagne (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: 12 15 9 16 7
Century Mertagne, formerly known as Crystal Mertagne, are a team that nowadays have little to do with the nation that shares their name. While an amazing, table topping finish isn’t exactly on the cards for the northern Syndicatian team, Century are looking to avoid both a lawsuit with the new nation and relegation from the top flight. They may not look like the men to do it, but sometimes the underdogs can end up surprising us all.

St Johns Arsenal (QUE)
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 8
Arsenal, from Newfoundland, can call themselves Quebec's second team, even if they are a fair few steps behind champions Montreal Koreana. Last season's eighth place was a fair result for the side, but an expectant fan base will demand the team go ever higher and higher in coming seasons. This season they once again return a fair number of veterans to the team. While Seung Myeon Courtois has headed to Jansberg FC of Semarland, they have managed to find an even better replacement in Fernando Spark of Star United States, giving them an extra boom-boom on goal-prevention. Their defence is still there, and midfields look even better with the addition of Alfred J. Haji from Bohemians 1935 of Norrehavn. Scoring will be a key enigma to this team however, as their latest signing Alex Cartwright is still lethal but aging.

Emberton Reds (KRY)
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 9
Calling the cavernous Isserson Olympic Stadium their home, Emberton’s fans are amongst the loudest you will hear. Unfortunately, though, the Reds are far more famous for their ability to choke after a strong start to the season. Hoping to end this will be Nepharim star striker Michael Kellard, signed after Krytenian international Ronnie van Rijn went off to seek his fortune in Farfadillis.

Lesko Pavillion (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: NA 16 17 13 10
Pavillion aren't the most fashionable side in the LigAnaia; they've been relegated from the top flight before and are rarely seen without the hunted expression of a team in the midst of a relegation dogfight, but last season's tenth place finish - enough for Globe Cup qualification - may well galvanize an often overlooked club with as much potential as any other you'd care to name.

Mercia Bromham (KRY)
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 11
Bromham have some serious financial clout, being owned as they are by the Swann family, owners of digital technology behemoths Cygnus Coporation. What they lack, however, is reputation. But with an Audioslavian signing in goal, and money to burn, expect that to change sooner rather than later.

Westonbirt City (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: 14 20 12 12 12
Westonbirt City’s best LigAnaia season so far was season three, whereby they bit their collective thumbs at the established order and fought their way to third place. The next season they went one better, and managed to claw their way even past the group stages of the Globe Cup. That performance, however, came at the cost of league form, and the green-clad side from western Syndicatia finished well out of the Globe Cup places. The side have flirted with relegation in recent years, but an ever-changing first-eleven may have a better chance at competing this year.

CSKA Quebec
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 13
Quebec City's former army club are famed throughout the north for their aggressive, attacking football - the likes of which propelled them to a commendable thirteenth place in the league last season. They, likewise, are also very popular team for traditional Quebecois fans, who still remember the days when CSKA used to be among top 2 teams to battle for Q-League Championships with their traditional rivals in none other than Montreal Koreana. They never struggle in filling their stadium, a feat that's even more impressive: At a hundred and forty-five thousand seats there are few teams in the world who could close, and even fewer who could make the noise the CSKA faithful can.

Trojana Condommakers
Previous Five Finishes: NA NA NA NA 14
'Trojana City' is a name often erroneously used for the team from Trojana-Trojanaja. 'Trojana Condommakers' is usually shortened to 'Trojana C.' in the more conservative parts of the north east, and there are some who believe the Quebecois works team to be from a city of the same name.

'TC' have a defensive, prophelactyc style of play. Because of course they do.

Kurtz Herritik (TCU)
Previous Five Finishes: NA Div3 Div3 Div2 15
The heretics were the first Mertagne-based side to make it to the top flight of the LigAnaia. They've found things tough going so far.

Casuals Osteria (KRY)
Previous Five Finishes: XX XX XX XX 19
Casuals come from the mining city of Osteria, and have a longstanding relationship with the coalminers (and latterly steelworkers) of this industrial city. An amateur club for many years, hence the Casuals moniker, professionalism brought about domestic success for the Miners. Though likely to be the weakest of the Krytenian sides, they’re hard-working and will be hoping to avoid the dreaded “R”.

Khinjar (IBX)
Sayyaf (IBX)
&
Mahraqat al-Juthathi (IBX)
The all-hoofed lineups of unfashionable Ibexians Khinjar, Sayyaf and Mahraqat al-Juthathi always provide an interesting, if occasionally alarming, away day for visiting teams and fans. None of these Ibexian clubs have ever really set the world alight, and they're usually favourites for relegation at the start of every season, but we try not to tell them that. Or they'll do that weird thing they do.

London FC (QUE)
Previous Five Finishes: XX XX XX XX Div2
London FC weren't most people's favourites to win promotion last season, but win it they did. The Ontarian club have been tipped to finish bottom, but with a whole three Ibexian clubs looking weaker than last season, there may yet be hope for the Quebecois underdogs.

 CopAnaia: Final
1830 Cathair (AUD) 1–0 International of Tyrellia (LGL) @ The Isserton Olympic Stadium, Krytenia


Considering 1830 Cathair’s history and money, it’s perhaps surprising that they had never before lifted a domestic cup competition, with Zozi, Itzi and even Oljestaden usurping them over the last ten years. Their opponents, International of Tyrellia, themselves former CopAnaia champions, put up a brave fight in the final and even threaten to take the lead multiple times in the second half, but a late strike from captain Wilfred Lidgley gives the men from Cathair their fourth trophy in three seasons - to add to their league title from season eight and Champions Cup and Super Cup titles from last year.

The Repechage 49 returns for its second season, with forty-nine clubs from around the Anaia nations battling it out over forty-eight games for the chance to join the big boys in the top flight.

Zenit bounce back from last season's relegation to rejoin the big boys in the LigAnaia: Calania. Ashton Olympic, in second, are looking forward to a season of top flight football, but what division that's in remains to be seen..

LigAnaia One: Calania - Matchday 1
Mahraqat al-Juthathi (IBX) 3–3 St. John's Arsenal (QUE)
Emberton Reds (KRY) 1–2 Burgess FC (TCU)
Ousevale Borough (KRY) 4–3 Century Mertagne (TCU)

Avidia United (KRY) 2–1 Sayyaf (IBX)
Lesko Pavillion (TCU) 1–3 Montreal Koreana (QUE)
Khinjar (IBX) 0–1 Westonbirt City (TCU)



And we're off to another opening week of the season. Not that many surprising results for the opening weekend, aside from this very odd draw between recently-promoted Mahraqat al-Juthathi and St.John's Arsenal. Arsenal, a team looking to challenge Koreana this year, did no less than disappointing on their opening match as they conceded a last-minute goal to disappoint the Newfoundlanders out Northeast. Otherwise, the scoreboard looks normal- Ousevale came off a very close win over Century Mertagne and Avidia United to relegation-favourites Sayyaf, as well as Magnaeus City to London FC on a 87th-minute goal by 19-year old Hazel van Robben.

The week 8 started with a great bang, as St.John's dominated en route to a convincing victory at Blue Point Stadium, while Herritik pulled ahead early and held on to an easy home win against Sayyaf. On the other end of Quebec, Trojana was able to shut down the Sunrisian duo with a magnificent performance by Felixian U-21 international Lise Hansson and the Trojana's condom-formation defence. Things not as easy for Koreana this season but hey, that's expected after a fabulous start made by the team that Ji Choon Kim built.

Krytenian sides fared the best this weekend, as all but Emberton walked away with 3 points to end the weekend. The one game to note was a 8-3 victory by Ousevale, who clearly had the best of Valrauncion with him as he scored 4 goals to set a career-night for the Vanor-Calanian legend. On the other hand it's been a tough week for the Calanian giants Fligsive and Magnaeus, as they both struggled in some disappointing displays they've shown on turf to only gain one point between them. It's no better for the Ibexian teams, but who cares about them?

The second season of the LigAnaia: Calania finishes with Ousevale making good their promise to usurp Montreal Koreana, who can only finish in third place, but at least have another crack at Champions Cup football next season. They same cannot be said for St. John’s Arsenal, whose brilliant fourth-place finish is for little reward as UICA rules dictate that the Syndicatians below them - Fligsive and Burgess - will go to the CC in their stead, relegating a devestated St. John’s Arsenal to the Globe Cup.

Fans of Avidia United are dismayed by their seventh-placed finish, although Emberton Reds, three points behind them in eighth, are ecstatic and counting the days until next season, in which they’ll join not only rivals United but also Trojana Condommakers, whose fans are thrilled with their ninth-place finish.

The Globe Cup spots should be rounded out by Mercia Bromham and CSKA Quebec, but instead they fall foul of the crime of ‘not being Syndicatian’ according to the new UICA rules that dictate the #2 ranked association in the world must have at least two teams in the Globe Cup. Thus, Westonbirt and Century Mertagne are given the final two GC spots in their stead.

At the bottom, London FC were expected to be relegated,and will indeed play in the R49 next season, but for ‘supposedly’ relegated Casuals Osteria - and, indeed, for all the other Krytenian clubs in the LigAnaia - it isn’t quite so simple...

LigAnaia: Calania - Official, final league table
Image


As the sands rolled across what used to be The Inevitable Syndicate, most football clubs either moved or had already closed their doors long before the grass stopped growing. Some teams, egged on by a proud and indignant supporter base who refused to let the encroaching desert impinge on their right to live where they're from, stayed put and fought the on-rushing tide. Such bravery has proven to be a mistake.

Burgess FC and Westonbirt were two of the high profile clubs that stayed put when all around them were upping sticks and changing names. Their problem was that, despite the noise generated by their fan base, too many supporters were fleeing to Mertagne themselves. By the end of season nine, neither was bringing more than ten thousand fans to their home stadium. 'That's enough for us to get by' said the chairmen of both clubs, despite warnings from elsewhere. By halfway through season ten, Burgess were drawing only three-figure crowds as the desert storms hit harder than had been anticipated. Their final games were played in Neorudo, ground-sharing with Lehen Neorudo of the second division. Westonbirt had all but moved by christmas, and played their final matches in Krytenia. Neither side have managed to keep the banks happy during this time, and both of them have now gone to the wall.

COCANEFA have retrospectively deducted both sides thirty points, as per LigAnaia rules, which ensures the LigAnaia: Calania will be represented by a full compliment of Mertian teams. No licenses have been applied for using either the Burgess of Westonbirt names. The teams are assumed to be dead. Their players will have to find new teams next season.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 1
1830 Cathair (AUD) 1–0 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 3–1 Shanak FC (OSR)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 1–0 Draig Goch (LGL)
Iskara Daii (STB) 3–1 Trothwands Evolution (OSR)
Comunas Cougars (LGL) 3–1 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 2–4 Tout-Puissant Hasiera (AUD)

KT Itzalovalle (AUD) 0–1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Firewood City (OSR) 2–1 Utica United (OSR)


The tenth season of the LigAnaia kicks off at 3pm in the west and 2pm in the east on the first Sunday of August, and the first goal of the entire season is scored just a few seconds later. Shanak FC, tipped for relegation, open the scoring against COCANEFA Champions Hastmead Diamante after their opening salvo results in Orson Kerraway finding himself in yards of space in front of goal, and is allowed to pass the ball into the bottom corner after twenty-five seconds. Hastmead, embarrassed, fight back to go into the break 2-1 up through van Kruistum and Crespo and win out three one thanks to a late strike that kills the game off just as it looked like Hastmead might struggle.

Fellow Osarians Trothwands Evolution are beaten by the same scoreline as Iskara Daii start their season as they mean to go on, with Joord Rietveld, Jan Macik and Owen Knob on target for the Starblaydis.

1830 Cathair have the UICA Champions Cup and Super Cup trophies proudly on display as they take to the field against newly promoted Corinthian Spirits; a vulgar display of imperial might not exactly out of character for the Cathair giants. If the posturing was supposed to phase Corinthian Spirits - back in the top flight after five seasons in the second tier - it didn't show as the visitors more than matched the Elders for the first half. It would take Cathair until the sixty-fourth minute to take the lead, with Rudolfo Zelaya playing a short pass through for new signing Rauno Bickermann, last season's top scorer in Polar Islandstates, to scoop over the onrushing keeper for 1-0.

Bickermann didn't get it all his own way in terms of being a Polarian target of Catharan affections. The seventy-fifth minute sees young full-back Solvir Ulvestad leave the field to be replaced by Kohev Kungas-Vaga, yes, that one. Cathair's most headline grabbing purchase during the transfer window hadn't been the multi-million dollar signings of World Cup winner Lenka Randakova, or national team centre-half Jouard Caceres, or goal-machine Rauno Bickermann, but the former one-club-man Kohev Kungas-Vaga, himself a former World Cup winner, as most Audioslavians are all too aware.

Kungas-Vaga took the field to rapturous applause and a fair few renditions of the 'Captain Scarlet' theme song, with his own name in place of the puppet protagonist. Whoever said Audioslavians hate Polarians?

Elsewhere, AC Izotz Zubia, third last season, scrape past Legalites Draig Goch by a single Tanya Bottlegreen goal to nil while Comunas Cougars get their season off to the best possible start with victory over a vastly improved Tyrellia Titans.

As for upsets, Inter's 4-2 home defeat by newly promoted Tout-Puissant Hasiera sends their fans home angry, while the all-Osarian clash between Firewood City and Utica United ends with the former taking the spoils. Firewood, edged out of UICA qualification yet again last season, are desperate not to miss out this year, and victory over the side that pipped them to tenth place last season will give the side a bit of confidence going into a long hard season.

1830 Cathair (AUD) 1–2 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)


It's derby day on Saturday as Titans host Inter in what promises to be a close Tyrellia derby. Said promise is revealed as an enormous fib as Titans, by far the weaker of the two sides over the last eight seasons, race into a three goal lead after twenty minutes and are four-one up by half time, as Ben Lintone's attempt at an Inter retort is cancelled out almost immediately by Jess Sanderson's fortieth-minute strike.

Inter try a fight back in the second half, but Quintus Oxboro's strike on the hour makes it five-one and seals Inter's humiliation.

Saturday's Tyrellia derby doesn't quite cut it as the biggest game of the weekend. Sunday's lunchtime kick-off sees 1830 Cathair, champions of Season Eight, host Season Nine champions Hastmead Diamante in what promises to be an epic battle between the two favourites for the title. As with matchday one, the trophies are on display at the Kirola Arena, with the Super Cup, Champions Cup and COCANEFA Championship trophies all paraded before the game.

It is the home side that strike first. Kohev Kungas-Vaga, deemed fit and healthy enough for the full ninety minutes by manager Johm Diarmid, plays a long cross-field pass to Jaime del Olmo. Del Olmo's first touch is dreadful, but the ball is collected by Fokke-Rommedahl on the overlap who takes the ball past the full-back and pulls it back for del Olmo to have a second bite of the cherry. Bite he does, as an expertly curled shot drops into the far corner past the dispairing dive of Marcus Williams.

Cathair, with home fans in full voice, go into the half-time break one-nil up, but are pegged back immediately after the restart as Jont van Kruistum makes it two goals in two games with a towering far-post header that sneaks inside Nuremberg's near-post. Cathair press, but find Hastmead's gates well and truly shut, and their increasing frustration gives out to horror as Elaine Ashdown picks out substitute Elliot Francis with a superb through-ball, and the young Jeckish finishes with aplomb to give Hastmead Diamante a huge win.


LigAnaia North East -Matchday 3
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 1–0 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 0–1 1830 Cathair (AUD)
Iskara Daii (STB) 0–0 Shanak FC (OSR)
Comunas Cougars (LGL) 3–0 Draig Goch (LGL)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 3–0 Trothwands Evolution (OSR)

KT Itzalovalle (AUD) 3–1 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Firewood City (OSR) 2–0 Grasshoppers Turic (OSR)
Utica United (OSR) 1–2 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)


It doesn't get easier for Cathair as they go into matchday three staring in the face of the Derby of Audioslavia against AC Izotz Zubia in the cauldron of the Soldaduak Eremuaberria stadium. Zozi, two from two so far despite not looking terrible impressive, tear into the Cathair back-line from the off, and it's testimony to the big-money back-six of Caceres, Kinlasson, Molovi, Kungas-Vaga, Fokke-Rommedahl and goalkeeper Kiki Nuremberg that Cathair don't go into the interval two or three adrift. Zozi continue to press in the second half, with Bottlegreen drawing two fine saves from Nuremberg while Nazeau Roga is wasteful with three chances, before a Very Audioslavian Counterattack results in Rauno Bickermann netting a side-footed finish at the other end to send the away fans into delirious celebration as Zozi hold their heads in dismay.

Hastmead retain their 100% record with a 1-0 win over Corinthian Spirits, who themselves haven't looked so bad thus far despite failing as yet to register a goal. They are joined at the top of the table by a Cathair club, but not the one they'd expect, as Cazadores Cathair maintain an impressive 100% start to the season with a huge 2-1 win over Utica United - Rook Cathair netting one goal with Johanathan Fanya grabbing the other. Titans continue their winning ways with a crushing 3-0 victory away to an out-of-sorts Telecontare who, despite boasting one of the biggest-named strikers in world football after a bizarre deadline-day purchase of Elvish Kryto-Starblaydi superstar Valrauncion, can't seem to put the goals away.

Inter, dire over the first two matchdays, get their first three points of the season with a three-nil win over an even direr Trothwands Evolution.

1830 Cathair (AUD) 2–1 Iskara Daii (STB)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 1–0 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)


A Rook Cathar brace and an Edgar Ambrose header make it four wins from four for Cazadores Cathair as they come from behind to deny Corinthian Spirits their first points of the campaign. They sit alone at the top of the league for a full day before Sunday's marquee matches. The lunchtime kick-off sees Cathair host Iskara Daii. The Audioslavian capital club struggle in the early going but take the lead after half-time as Rauno Bickermann makes it three goals from four games. Daii hit back through Naphtali Thatcher, but Cathair seal the points through captain Wilfred Lidgley who fires the winner through a crowded penalty area for 2-1.

Sunday afternoon sees Hastmead Diamante rejoin Cazadores at the top of the table as Esteban Crespo's strike is enough to sneak .them past a game Izotz Zubia side.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 5
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 4–1 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2–1 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)

Firewood City (OSR) 1–0 Tout-Puissant Hasiera (AUD)
Utica United (OSR) 2–1 Foxchester Raiders (STB)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 1–2 Grasshoppers Turic (OSR)


The wheels finally come off for Cazadores on matchday five as they succumb 2-1 to Grasshoppers Turic in a disappointing performance, but Hastmead Diamante can't take advantage that evening as they leave Jhan with nothing following a 2-1 win for Iskara Daii. Cathair travel to Comunas for a matchup with the Cougars that sees the visitors rejoin the top of the league with a 1-0 win - Bickermann again with the goal - while Zozi take the spoils in a 4-1 thrashing of Corinthian Spirits who remain rooted to the bottom of the tabe.

Inter's troubles go from bad to worse as they are upset 3-2 by Shanak FC in Sunday's lunchtime kickoff.

Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 1–1 Comunas Cougars (LGL)
AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 0–1 Iskara Daii (STB)


Iskara Daii's 1-0 away win over AC Izotz Zubia means that the men from Tzierra have lost three of their last four games, while Iskara Daii move to the top of the league. There are mild upsets aplenty as Hastmead Diamante fail to beat Comunas Cougars, Cazadores lose again, and Utica United come unstuck against Tout-Puissant Hasiera.

The most interesting match of the weekend happens on the Saturday evening as Cathair, still licking their wounds after defeat in the Champions Cup in midweek, go 3-1 down at home to struggling Inter Tyrellia within the first half an hour, as Cyrus Damhan's early strike against his former club is cancelled out by Appius Howey's reply before Ed Staudt and Wilhelm Lojdahl make it 3-1 to the visitors.

Cathair come out after half-time with renewed vigour and pull a goal back though Rodolfo Zelaya's long-awaited first of the campaign, but Bigode makes it 4-2 on seventy minutes and sets up a frantic battle over the last quarter of the game. Zelaya pops up again on eighty-four minutess before Lenka Randakova steals a point for the struggling Elders with a neat turn-and-shot from the corner of the area to the sound of pained cheers from a tired home crowd.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 7
Iskara Daii (STB) 4–2 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Comunas Cougars (LGL) 3–3 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
International of Tyrellia (LGL) 3–0 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)

Utica United (OSR) 5–2 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Cazadores Cathair (AUD) 0–0 Tout-Puissant Hasiera (AUD)
Grasshoppers Turic (OSR) 4–1 Foxchester Raiders (STB)


Any Hastmead fans braying at the meal Cathair made of their game with Inter were throroughly silenced over the course of a humiliating ninety minutes in the Saturday lunchtime match between themseves and the very same opponents, as Inter ran out three-nil winners thanks to Oliver Abrego's brace and Appius Howey's eighty-fifth minute header.

Valrauncion's Telecontare continue to struggle for goals, and although they go into half-time at 1-1 against visitors 1830 Cathair, with Valrauncion himself grabbing the go-ahead goal before Zelaya's reply, Cathair overrun the elves in the second half with Bickermann and Zelaya again the scorers.

Sunday's big game between Comunas and Izotz Zubia ends as a three-all draw. Comunas, who were 3-1 up with twenty minutes to play, could not withstand Zozi's fightback as first Tinviel and then Kulkkiia scored for the visitors to steal a point.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 8

AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 3–2 International of Tyrellia (LGL)
Iskara Daii (STB) 2–1 Comunas Cougars (LGL)


Inter are once againing panicking the league's big-hitters as they go into a two-goal lead early on away to Zozi, but the mountain men fight back just as they had against last week's Legalite opposition, and this time forge the win as Tinuviel, Bottlegreen and young bull Apexarena seal a 3-2 win for the hosts. Comunas once again lose a lead as Iskara Daii come from behind to win two-one, while Hastmead Diamante's three points are never really in doubt as a Kruistum hat-trick helps them on their way to a four-one win over Tele, with Valrauncion nabbing the visitor's consolation goal.

Joining the likes of Hastmead, Iskara Daii and 1830 Cathair at the top of the table on matchday eight is the unlikely figure of KT Itzalovalle. Defeated on the opening matchday by Cazadores Cathair, Itzi have taken a 5-2-0 record since then, generally grabbing one-nil wins against the league's lesser sides, and find themselves in and amongst the big boys at this early stage.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 9

Most have written off KT Itzalovalle as a mid-table outfit on a run of narrow wins over ordinary sides, and for most their hosting of 1830 Cathair should be the beginning of their descent back to the middle of the table. Mezei Orban, though, has other ideas. The Pasargan's work in the middle of the field helps quell the multi-million dollar Cathair midfielders, and it's Orban who gets the only goal of the game on seventy-two minutes as he controls a cross with his chest and thrashes a volley past Kiki Nuremberg for 1-0. With nine matches gone, it is Itzi who top the league, if only by a point.

Inter bounce back on matchday nine with a four-two win over Iskara Daii that knocks the Starblaydis off top spot in the league. Cazadores Cathair, top of the table after four games, are now winless in their last five and are occupying the same lower-mid-table position they have made their home in recent seasons.

A glance at the league table at this early point of the season reveals seven clubs within three points of one another at the top, with Inter, Tele and Zozi struggling to keep pace and Firewood, Itzi and Utica somehow occupying three of the top five spots.

At the bottom, the teams are a little more stretched out, with Draig Goch winless on three points, Trothwands on four, Shanak on five and Corinthian Spirits on six, having finally grabbed their first points of the season.

Comunas Cougars (LGL) 2–0 International of Tyrellia (LGL)


Itzi aren't getting it all their own way: a point hammered into them by Hastmead Diamante, who re-take the lead at the top of the table with a resounding three-nothing victory, with Costello, Ronco and Crespo all on the scoresheet. Daii join their Osarian rivals after a 4-1 shellacking of Telecontare, while Cathair keep in touch with the leaders by overcoming Firewood City thanks to goals from Cenian winger Jaime del Olmo and young Audioslavian striker Dragan Kryznjak.

Bob's Towing and Utica United, similarly higher up in the table than they'd have expected at the start of the season, both struggle to disappointing results. Utica have to come from behind three times to share the points with bottom-feeders Shanak, while Bob's Towing are thrashed 5-2 by AC Izotz Zubia in a match which sees Nazeau Roga notch his first of the season either side of two strikes from Tanya Bottlegreen, a Sterling Rose header and a cracking strike from young striker Frantzisko Apexarena.

If Hastmead Diamante believed themselves to be the alpha lion of the north-eastern pack, swatting down challengers from upstart betas like KT Itzalovalle, they were in for a rude awakening on matchday eleven as they left Firewood with their tails between their legs following a 3-0 hiding by supposed 'mid-table' club Firewood City. Firewood, of course, are former Champions Cup winners and fans balk at the claim that they're a mid-table club despite what recent history would suggest. Itzalovalle, however, are definite mid-table fodder, and they're proved to be as much by a largely toothless performance against local rivals AC Izotz Zubia who win out 1-0 thanks to Tanya Bottlegreen's first-half strike.

Inter have been trying to force their way into the upper echelons of the LigAnaia for years, but their matchday eleven encounter with Corinthian Spirits - who once famously proclaimed themselves favourites for the LigAnaia title after topping the league on the ten-matchday mark and promptly got relegated that very same season - is a poor advertisement for that idea as they succumb 5-4 at home.

Iskara Daii move to the top of the league via a three-nil hammering of Bob's Towing, while 1830 Cathair move second with victory of Utica United.

International of Tyrellia (LGL) 1–0 Telecontare (STB)


It's Iskara Daii's turn to give Itzi a clip round the ear on matchday twelve, winning comfortably by a two-nil scoreline that sees Carnavalense and Knob both on the scoresheet. Hastmead overcome fellow Osarians by three goals to two while the all-Legalite encounter between Comunas Cougars and Bob's Towing results in the favourites winning out two-nothing.

Sunday's game is the ever-entertaining Cathair derby as powerhouses 1830 take on perennial underdogs Cazadores. 1830 Cathair traditionally win any local derby fairly comfortably, going back to the old days where 'The Cathair Derby' usually meant a game against Shamrock rather than Cazadores. This Sunday lunchtime, however, sees the little guys put one over on the big boys as a solitary goal by Lutheromano Reigns - a powerful diving header from the far post - is enough to take all three points for the men from the east of the capital.

Comunas Cougars suppose themselves to be the latest in a long line of heavyweights to give pretenders KT Itzalovalle a well-deserved clip round the ear. The Legalite powerhouses are on a run of four straight wins and have been desperate to raise themselves back up to the Champions Cup after a few seasons in the wilderness of the Globe Cup, but their trip to south-east Audioslavia is in vain as Itzi take all three points.

Cathair win a tough game away to Grasshoppers Turic, another of Osarius's supposedly lesser teams that nevertheless have a piece of UICA silverware in their cabinet - the GC in Grasshoppers's case - while Hastmead can only draw against a rejuvenated Cazadores who take a share of the points thanks to a late header from Joseph Venus.

Inter, beaten again last week, are tasked with proving their claim to be a LigAnaia big-gun by giving KT Itzalovalle what should be a customary shooeing away from the grown-ups' table, but can only scrape a draw in a game the Tzierrans were lucky not to win. Across the island, Cougars dominate Firewood to make up for last week's embarassment, while big wins for Iskara Daii and 1830 Cathair improve their standing at the top of the table.

Tyrellia Titans (LGL) 3–1 Shanak FC (OSR)
Trothwands Evolution (OSR) 0–1 Draig Goch (LGL)


Neither Foxchester Raiders, Tout-Puissant Hasiera nor Grasshoppers Turic are really supposed to give the big teams any hassle, but you wouldn't guess that from their performances on Saturday afternoon as each of them give three of the heavyweights a hard time. Hastmead Diamante scrape past Foxchester 4-3 while Zozi drop points to Turic. 1830 Cathair, meanwhile, are upset on a trip east to Hasiera and lose ground in the title race.

Itzalvalle, still somehow in the top three, win against Tele, who continue to disappoint.

International of Tyrellia (LGL) 0–3 Utica United (OSR)
Telecontare (STB) 0–1 Firewood City (OSR)
Bobs Towing (LGL) 0–1 KT Itzalovalle (AUD)


It's another narrow 4-3 win for Hastmead Diamante, who have tended to be able to play poorly and win more readily than Cathair in recent years. Not that that excuses the Catharans' result on Sunday afternoon, as they host Tyrellia Titans - the team with the worst top-flight record of all the LigAnaia: North East - and lose 2-0 in a game they were never really in.

Iskara Daii defeat Grasshoppers while Itzi win again, this time away to Bob's Towing.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 17

Trothwands Evolution (OSR) 2–3 1830 Cathair (AUD)
Draig Goch (LGL) 3–2 Shanak FC (OSR)


It's almost three defeats in a row for Cathair as they go two-one down against Trothwands with just ten minutes to play. The side have to rely on substitutes Kryznjak and Damhan to wrench three points from the ether. 'Mid-table' Itzi have no such difficulties, thrashing Corinthians 3-0, while Tele rack up five goals against a Utica side that were supposed to be kicking on after last week's 3-0 away win over Inter. Inter themselves go from bad to drab as they register only a nil-all draw against Cazadores in a sorry Sunday-lunchtime advert for COCANEFA football.

Over in Starblaydia, Foxchester hold Iskara Daii to a draw in a rare slip-up for the Jhanna men.

Telecontare (STB) 3–1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)
Bobs Towing (LGL) 4–0 Utica United (OSR)
KT Itzalovalle (AUD) 5–5 Firewood City (OSR)


Itzalovalle and Firewood each score five goals in the strangest scoreline of matchday eighteen. Zozi score five as well, but Tyrellia Titans have missed the memo and take none for themselves.

Elsewhere, 1830 Cathair have to scrape a draw at home to second-bottom Draig Goch in what should have been a routine three points for the capital club. The scoreline is a microcosm for an utterly miserable first half of the season for Cathair. Ten points adrift from the league leaders, out of all UICA competition after an utterly pathetic defence of their UICA Champions Cup title, serious questions are being asked for manager John Diarmid and his suitability for the job.

Draig Goch (LGL) 0–1 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Shanak FC (OSR) 1–1 1830 Cathair (AUD)


1830 Cathair walk up to the mid-season break and pratfall through it; the CC champs manage to give Shanak FC only their eleventh point of the campaign by failing to beat them, and for most observers the Audioslavian giants are done, eleven points adrift of first and with only a top-three Champions Cup spot to fight for.

Iskara Daii, three points clear of Hastmead Diamante going into matchday nineteen, have their lead cut to one with failure to beat Tyrellia Titans, who are absolutely flying compared to their traditional LigAnaia form, and are tenth, a place outside the Globe Cup spots.

Above Titans are, Utica United and Bob's Towing, two of the teams who have benefitted from the LigAnaia's split, as they now have the opportunity to play UICA football more often. Notable by their absenses in the top ten are Telecontare, who sit eleventh after a pretty dismal start to what was supposed to be a breakthrough season for the elves, and Legalite powerhouses International of Tyrellia whose form has been nothing short of utterly disasterous. Inter are seventeenth, with just four wins from nineteen games and a string of embarassing defeats to their name.

At the bottom, Shanak are already readying themselves for a tough season in the R49 next year, six points clear of safety with only two points to their name, while Draig Goch and Corinthian Spirits are preparing themselves for a long, hard battle. While seventeenth (seventeenth!) placed Inter are confident of pulling themselves up to at least mid-table by the end of the season, Grasshoppers, Foxchester, TPH, Trothwands and Cazadores are all all-too weary of being dragged into the umpteenth relegation battle of their LigAnaia history.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 20
Corinthian Spirits (STB) 1–2 1830 Cathair (AUD)
Shanak FC (OSR) 1–0 Hastmead Diamante (OSR)
Draig Goch (LGL) 0–2 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Trothwands Evolution (OSR) 4–2 Iskara Daii (STB)

Utica United (OSR) 1–0 Firewood City (OSR)


Goals from Cathair's Valhallan contingent of Bickermann and Kungas-Vaga push the capital club over the line against Corinthian Spirits, giving fans at least a brief sigh of relief after last week's draw against Shanak that, at the time, felt humiliating. Spare a thought, then, for the four thousand travelling Diamond fans who spent ninety minutes watching their title-challenging side toil to an ugly one-nil defeat by that same Shanak side, who pulled themselves away from bottom on goals-scored, thanks to Draig Goch's meek showing in a two-nil home defeat by AC Izotz Zubia.

Iskara Daii, just a point north of Hastmead, can't take advantage. A trip to Osarius to face Trothwands ends in disaster as, at 1-1, two Daii players are sent from the field, leading to a capitulation for the famous old Starblaydi club as they go down 4-2.

Inter begin the salvage work of their season by beating Tout-Puissant Hasiera, while Sunday's all-Audioslavian clash between overperforming KT Itzalovalle and Cazadores ends with the struggling west-Cathair club taking a comfortable two-nothing win via goals from Reigns and Courageous. On Monday evening, the all-Legalese encounter between resurgent Titans and top-three Cougars ends with a flurry of goals as Comunas, who believe they've salvaged a draw with an eighty-fourth minute equalizer, are summarily slapped thrice to the chops with quickfire Titanic retribution as the Tyrellia club win out 4-1.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 21
Utica United (OSR) 3–5 Corinthian Spirits (STB)
Firewood City (OSR) 1–1 Cazadores Cathair (AUD)

AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 2–1 Shanak FC (OSR)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 2–1 1830 Cathair (AUD)


Itzi score four against Turic, Tele hit five against Hasiera, Corinthians come out the better of an eight-goal thriller in Utica, Bob's Towing and Foxchester share six goals equally and Inter win a tense, nailbiting Tyrellia derby against Titans to lift them out of the relegation dogfight, but the mouthwatering match of week twenty-two is, without a doubt, the big cross-water derby between LigAnaia champs Hastmead Diamante and UICA champs 1830 Cathair.

Unlike the second week of the season, there were no paraded trophies or communist-mural-standard posturing. Cathair, in traditional blue and white, met the tangerine-clad Hastmead Diamante in Fourge for a good old traditional heavyweight prizefight.

Cathair edged the first few rounds and scored the first big haymaker late in the first half, as Lidgley's precision left-cross opened Diamante's defences for Zelaya's roundhouse volley. Cathair's travelling fans, seeing their opponents wounded, rallied behind their team for the rest of the half as time and again the orange-trunked southern pugilist rocked and wobbled amidst the Catharan onslaught.

The Diamonds would make the bell, and came out for the second half rejuvenated and not without a change of tactics, one of which enabled a left-counter to suckerpunch the Audioslavian challenger as Elaine Ashdown arrived on the blind side to hit a shot past Nuremberg for 1-1.

The two heavyweights jockeyed for position as the game wore on, and time and again would raise the crowd to their feet expecting one or the other to go down at any moment, but by the end it would be Cathair on its knees, beaten by a hammerblow from Ashdown's eighty-ninth minute goal. Hastmead, then, victorious on points, but with still a long way to go to reclaim the title.

Cathair bounce back the next week with victory over cross-country rivals AC Izotz Zubia in the Derby of Audioslavia, winning a cracking Saturday lunchtime game 4-2. Iskara go one better in the scoring charts with a five-two shellacking of Shanak, while Turic and Firewood shared eight between them in the all Osarius battle on Monday night.

Elsewhere, Tele and Inter continue to struggle, beaten 3-2 by Trothwands and Titans respectively.

At the top, Comunas continue to leave their fans wanting, as an excellent pre-christmas run is arrested by three defeats on the bounce, the latest at the hands of relegation fodder Draig Goch. Itzalovale, great one week, terrible the next, lose to a barely modest Foxchester side by a goal to nil.

The big shock comes in Monday night's supposed mismatch between league favourites Hastmead Diamante and struggling Corinthians. On a snow-dusted field in northern Starblaydia, Corinthians would score a famous win over the Diamonds to give their rivals Iskara Daii a head start in the race for the north eastern championship.

Shanak, after a brief flirtation with not being dreadful, found themselves back in the dreadful sack hanging from the dreadful tree in the middle of dreadful island on the dreadful archipelago in New North Dreadful on the dreadful planet in the dreadful solar system in the dreadful spiral arm of a pretty shit galaxy, as they lose 3-0 to Comunas, who are currently steering the good starship Cougar away from the exact same galaxy on a heading towards the 'decent on a good night at home' supercluster, at which they'd arrive quite soon if only they could figure out how to turn fanny-clenching ineptitude into rocket fuel. Utica beat Grasshoppers 1-0.

Inter give the sack a disinterested thwack as they win 3-0 in Shanak, while Cathair look to make amends for their defeat to Hastmead by going two-for-oh against their closest rivals, adding to last week's defeat of Iskara Daii by beating Comunas Cougars 2-1, knocking the good starship a few parsecs off course and careening ever closer to the black hole of no-Champions-Cup-football-this-season-either.

Draig Goch manage an impressive win over Telecontare to inch them closer to safety with a 4-3 win, but the big game of the weekend is Sunday's teatime clash between Hastmead Diamante and Iskara Daii, comfortably the top two in the league.

'Super Sunday', as the region's television scheduling dubbed it, featured three marquee matches, billed as the beginning of the race to the championship.

International of Tyrellia had endured a torrid season, and were at risk of missing out on Globe Cup football all together if they couldn't arrest their dire run of form. Could they upset the current UICA Champions Cup holders?

Opponents 1830 Cathair, though much further up the mountain, had expectations of reaching the summit quickly and easily, as they had in every even-numbered season of LigAnaia football so far. Could they kickstart their fightback on a cool afternoon in Tyrellia?

Comunas Cougars, supposedly the modern powerhouses of Legalite football, had only finished in the top three twice in their six-season LigAnaia history - a shocking record for such a team. Could they begin to right their wrongs, starting with a morale-boosting usurping of LigAnaia champions Hastmead Diamante?

The Diamonds themselves, two time league champions, had promised to create a tangerine dynasty in Osarian and north-eastern football. To do that, they'd need to prove themselves to be the sort of team who could go into the cougar's den and come out with it's beating heart. Do cougars have dens?

Iskara Daii, pretenders to the throne throughout seven LigAnaia seasons without being able to grab that brass ring themselves, had shown steady improvements in both domestic and UICA football in recent seasons. Could they assert their superiority over the rest of the north east through victory over two-time champions AC Izotz Zubia?

For Zozi, last season's third place finish was a vast improvement on the previous two seasons, wherein they finished sixth on each occasion, well out of the Champions Cup places, and showed very little of the team that had established itself as LigAnaia heavyweights early in the league's life. Fans still fancied their team to be a major player in the LigAnaia. Could the team go some way to proving as such by interrupting Iskara Daii's march to the title via an impressive away victory in Jhan?

Answers: Yes, No, Set course for Dreadful, I don't know, No, Apparently so.

Foxchester Raiders (STB) 2–3 Grasshoppers Turic (OSR)


'Regular Saturday' makes a mockery of Super Sunday by reversing each team's fortunes less than a week later. Zozi, gloriously victorious against Iskara Daii on Sunday, are defeated at home by a Cougars side who hit their stride at exactly the right moments. Inter, buoyed by their shock upset over 1830 Cathair, are utterly demolished six-to-one by Hastmead Diamante, who are the only team to come out of the weekend with an advantage over their rivals, while 1830 Cathair offer a yardstick of how much the team is struggling by celebrating a 1-1 draw with Telecontare, who lead through Valrauncion but cannot hold out against Cathair's probing, and concede late on through Bickermann.

International of Tyrellia (LGL) 1–2 AC Izotz Zubia (AUD)
Comunas Cougars (LGL) 1–0 Iskara Daii (STB)


With all the emphasis on 'super' this, 'regular' that and 'dreadful' the other, KT Itzalovalle are once again able to slip under the raider to record five matches without defeat. A major newspaper pips them for an unlikely Champions Cup berth, given their form compared to the likes of Cathair and Cougars. Naturally, the second the article comes out is the second Itzi are cursed, but the run has been nice while it lasted.

Cathair and Comunas both win on the Sunday, with the Audioslavians victorious in a seven-goal thriller against Bob's Towing, where Rauno Bickermann nets all four goals in a stunning display of finishing prowess, while Cougars actually manage to usurp Iskara Daii by a solitary goal to nil.

Hastmead Diamante smell blood. Unfortunately, the smell comes from the boot of Valrauncion, who has been breaking hearts with his powerful right foot for decades, and manages to take advantage of a rare good performance from the Telecontare midfield to score four out of Tele's five goals in an epic 5-3 victory.

Firewood, presumably between gutlaughs at the Diamonds result, declare at six for no wicket against a shockingly poor Draig Goch side.

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 28

Itzi do indeed change form under observation, but at least it's not without a fight as they twice lead away to 1830 Cathair, only to come undone by replies from Del Olmo and Lidgley before Kryznjak's seventy-fifth minute winner.

Comunas keep their hopes of Champions Cup football alive with away victory over Corinthians, while there's more woe for Inter who have the better of a tense match with Iskara Daii only to lose out to a late Knob strike that keeps the Jhan club in touch with leaders Hastmead Diamante, who dispose of Bob's Towing in a routine 2-0 win.

Telecontare, after a run of three games without defeat which saw them hold Cathair and thrash Hastmead, lose meekly to AC Izotz Zubia in a result that keeps up Zozi's pretence of being an elite LigAnaia outfit, despite what the league table may imply.

Itzalovalle put up another brave fight in the midweek fixtures on matchday twenty-nine, but can't halt Hastmead Diamante as the Osarians increase their lead at the top thanks to Iskara Daii's failure to beat Telecontare on their travels.

The barometer of Cathair's form, which has bounced wildly from gale-force to calm on this peculiar barometer that also apparently measures wind-speed, thrash Firewood by five goals to two on a Wednesday night that also sees two other seven-goal thrillers, with Tout-Puissant Hasiera taking the spoils against Corinthian Spirits and Utica winning an all-Osarian derby against Shanak.

KT Itzalovalle rarely win the Itzi/Zozi derby of Audioslavia's mountainous south-eastern region, but win they do in Saturday's early kickoff to leapfrog their opponents in the league table. They move to within two points of third placed 1830 Cathair, but the Catharans's narrow win over Utica in the afternoon increases that lead back to five and, with Zozi, Itzi and Comunas Cougars all in mixed form, nobody expects the capital club to lose that position any time soon.

Cathair, so far adrift earlier in the season, are now just two behind second-placed Iskara Daii, who's win over Bob's Towing keeps them within barge-pole distance of leaders Hastmead Diamante, who overcome a number of scares to win the Fourge Derby against Firewood by five goals to four in a cracking Sunday afternoon encounter.

At the bottom, doomed Shanak are still sitting snugly in their sack with no sign of escape, eleven points adrift of safety, with the trio of Grasshoppers, Corinthian Spirits and Foxchester all level on twenty-eight points, with the Corinthians bottom due to having a goal-difference that can only be measured in light years.

Tele and Inter, so often shoe-ins for Globe Cup football, are both outside a top nine that somehow includes Tyrellia Titans, with Trothwands Evolution also, impressively, occupying the last of the six GC spots.

Inter and Tele face off on Saturday lunchtime in a high-scoring encounter that sees the Legalite club win out four-three, though Tele give them a big scare by fighting back from 4-1 down to keep the game interesting until the final whistle.

At the top, neither of the top two can force a win as Hastmead are held by Utica while Iskara Daii fail to put Itzi away despite roaring into an early two-nil lead. The slip ups allow Cathair to catch Iskara Daii via victory in the capital derby, the solitary goal coming from Rudolfo Zelaya early in the second half.

The top three all win comfortably on matchday thirty-two, and the gap is increased with regards to those who should by now be all but giving up the chase for the Champions Cup places.

Itzi and the Cougars face off in what is not only a great game, but also a great name for an 80s new-wave band. Itzalovalle twice lead before Comunas come back in a second half fight back that sees them equalize, take the lead, create a cushion and put the game beyond doubt all within the space of nine second half minutes. Izotz Zubia, desperate to take advantage of Itzi's slip-up, fail to do so in spectacular fashion, throwing away a two goal lead to draw in a home encounter with Utica United.

Utica are keen on playing the role of spoilers as they host an Iskara Daii side desperate to catch Hastmead Diamante and hold them to a drab goalless draw that leaves Daii's travelling faithful wrenching their hair out in frustration. Hastmead duly take advantage, increasing their lead over the Daii with a late winner against Grasshoppers Turic, who could really have done with the point to stay away from the drop zone.

The Diamonds, then, move seven clear of Iskara Daii, but they can't break away from Cathair who breeze past Foxchester Raiders on their way to, so their fans say, a fifth LigAnaia title.

Shanak FC (OSR) 2–2 Tyrellia Titans (LGL)
Draig Goch (LGL) 1–1 Trothwands Evolution (OSR)


No change at the top as all three of Daii, Diamonds and Elders win very comfortably indeed, though Comunas stay just five adrift of third via a hard-earned win over Utica United. Utica, Globe Cup qualifiers last season, don't look like they'll be able to repeat the feat this time out, though Inter are doing all they can to barge their way back into the top nine with an impressive win over Firewood City, the team at the tail end of that top nine.

Telecontare, in tenth, cannot take advantage as they lose to Itzalovalle in a seven-goal thriller that sees a Valrauncion hat-trick rendered all but meaningless. Itzi are still riding high in an unbelievable fifth place, above local rivals AC Izotz Zubia, the fans of which are getting increasingly frustrated at their side's inability to catch the men from Ferramendiak.

There are millions of eyes on little Tout-Puissant Hasiera as they play host to Hastmead Diamante on Saturday morning, with fans around the north east desperate to see if the Osarian league leaders would slip up. Diamante, five points ahead of Cathair and seven clear of Iskara Daii, are edging closer to becoming the first club to their second North East title in two seasons, and with that the chance to compete with the Calanian champions for the overall championship. Hasiera, as most would have predicted, put up little fight as the boys in orange march away with a 2-0 victory.

Iskara Daii clamber to within seven points with a 4-0 scunnering of Turic while Cathair, kicking off their own tricky away encounter at three o'clock, know that nothing short of victory will do, but diaster strikes in Tyrellia as a goal either side of half-time condemns a nervy Cathair team to defeat, dropping them eight points behind the leaders with just nine to play for. For them, the hunt for a fifth LigAnaia Championship is over.

It turns out to be quite the weekend for anti-climaxes. Firewood City's crunch game with Telecontare is a match billed as two of the league’s more storied club battling for the final Globe Cup spot. Battle they do, but the spoils fall to Firewood who, via their 2-1 win, pull four points clear of tenth place with just three games to go. Inter, another side with a narrow chance of stealing ninth, can only draw an all-mid-table clash with Utica United to put them all but out of contention themselves.

As far as the relegation battle goes, Shanak are mathematically relegated with defeat to Trothwands, while the fight to avoid dropping with them (at least automatically. Relegation is a mysterious thing in the LigAnaia) is still between fellow Osarians Grasshoppers on 29 points, and the Starblaydi duo of Corinthian Spirits and Foxchester Raiders, neither of whom do themselves any favours with losses on matchday thirty-five.

The only other big fight is the pitched battle between Itzi and Zozi for bragging rights in Tzierra. Once again, Zozi win, but Itzi match their result to stay two points clear of their increasingly bitter rivals.

'This is the day' cries Diamante's social media in the run up to Sunday's encounter with seventh-placed Tyrellia Titans, a game billed as the match that will keep the title in Fourge for another season. In reality, it's all but a dead rubber as Saturday's fixtures see neither Iskara Daii nor 1830 Cathair take the wins they so desperately need to keep in touch with the leaders. Diamante, expecting to go into the match needing a win, know by the time Sunday comes around that a draw is all that's necessary to take the title, and if anything that seems to make the task harder for them. They take the lead in the first half, but a Titanic equalizer casts doubt among the orange ranks. Tyrellia look like taking the lead at any moment with volleys of attacks down the flanks, but a mistake in their defence lets Nicola Costello through to score on the counter, and Jorit van Kruistum's late strike seals the deal - Hastmead Diamante are champions of the north east yet again.

At the bottom, Grasshoppers eke out an impressive point against high flying Comunas, but the side aren't helped by the fact that their relegation rivals both take a point each themselves, keeping the situation largely similar going into the final two games.

Shanak thrash Draig Goch, in what must be seen as a cruel joke by both sets of supporters.

Firewood's hard-earned victory over Itzi, Zozi's win over Tyrellia and the failure of Telecontare to get even a point from Cazadores sews up the Globe Cup picture into a neat bow, especially as Comunas Cougars, in drawing with Foxchester, can no longer catch the top three. Zozi will finish above Itzi barring a miracle on the final day, while Tyrellia Titans are in the Globe Cup just two seasons after suffering through one of the most pathetic seasons in LigAnaia history.

At the bottom, Foxchester's draw is cancelled about by points apiece for both Grasshoppers Turic, who grind out a point at home to Inter, and Corinthian Spirits, who fail to take advantage of a game against lowly Shanak, who earn their twenty-third point of the campaign. The big stories in the league are all wrapped up bar this one. Which of the three will follow Shanak FC down to the R49?

LigAnaia North East -Matchday 38

AC Izotz Zubia (AUD) 2–2 Trothwands Evolution (OSR)
Hastmead Diamante (OSR) 1–0 Draig Goch (LGL)
1830 Cathair (AUD) 5–2 Shanak FC (OSR)


As with the first day of the season, all matches across both LigAnaia divisions kick off at the same time, though not before the LigAnaia: North East trophy is paraded around the stadium before Hastmead Diamante's home tie against Draig Goch.

The first goal of the day is scored by Valrauncion, who scores after two minutes against a Grasshoppers side who need a win to survive, and things go from bad to worse for the Grasshoppers as Corinthian Spirits race into a two-goal lead early on against Firewood, who have one eye on the beaches of Turori already.

Foxchester Raiders, the only other team catchable by the Osarian crisis club, go a goal down before half time, but Grasshoppers can't put themselves in position to take advantage and, two goals down by sixty minutes, it's clear that there'll be no saving the insects from the drop.

Full time sees Grasshoppers relegated down to R49. Shanak, long since mathematically ousted, are humped 5-2 by Cathair for their troubles. The result is not enough to put Cathair into second, however, as Iskara Daii ease to a comfortable victory against Tyrellia Titans.

In the Globe Cup places, Itzalovalle go a fair way to making up the five-goal deficit in goal difference they have in arrears compared to AC Izotz Zubia, and for a short while it seems like they may be in luck, with Zozi two one down at home to Trothwands and going nowhere, but Nazeau Roga's equalizer, in what is said to be his last game for the club after an uninspiring season, maintains Zozi's grip on fifth place and gives them the bragging rights, once more, for the whole region.

COCANEFA Grand Final

From the Stadii di Bradini, Jhanna, Starblaydia


(OSR)                Hastmead Diamante   4-3   Ousevale Borough                 (KRY)
Francis 12 Zozula 43
Crespo 21, 73 Jordan 51
van Kruistum 88 Sampson 60

Well, let's be honest here, these two sides were never going to play out a boring nil-nil draw. Hastmead, the reigning champions, started the stronger, and took the lead when Jurit van Kruistum's cross was well met by Jeckian striker Elliot Francis. The Diamonds would keept he pressure on, too, with Francis putting another shot just wide a few minutes later, and it came as no surprise to anyone watching that the men in orange put themselves two ahead. The Pasargan winger was again the provider, though this time threading a beautiful pass to Esteban Crespo, who had no trouble beating Martin Davis at the near post.

Ousevale, though, were not out of this yet. Fears they may have fallen apart without star striker Valrauncion proved to be unfounded as the Tigers romped to the Calanian title. Part of that reason is the speed with which youngster Alex Sampson and Apoxian Adnan Zozula have forged an understanding. It came as no surprise, then, when the two combined to get Ousevale back on track, Zozula finishing after a smart one-two with Sampson. That saw us through to the half-time whistle, and a match delicately poised.

It was the men in white who started the second half the stronger, and they soon had their equaliser as Spencer Jordan headed home an Imanol Vengochea corner. Momentum carried with Ousevale, who took the lead for the first time on the hour. Darren Radcliffe saw his shot well saved by Rosie Munro, but Sampson was there to pick up the pieces to make the score three-two.

Of course, there was plenty of time in the game to play. As Ousevale searched for a fourth, Hastmead hit them on the break. Quick thinking from Matjas Nordland released Elaine Ashdown, and her speedy pass to Crespo flat-footed the Ousevale defence, leaving the Osarian with a simple finish. As the game entered its final few minutes, the game was a complete toss-up with both sides having their chances to win. Davis saved well from a fierce Ashdown shot, Zozula smacked the outside of the post with Munro beaten, and then, with just two minutes remaining, a goal to bring joy (and a retained title) to the Diamonds. It was van Kruistum who got it, just reward for a man-of-the-match performance, as he beat Dwayne Lewis for pace, cut inside, and unleashed a curler that left Davis no chance.

For Hastmead, then, another lovely silver bauble to add to the collection. For Ousevale? A new, and yet old, challenge awaits...

COCANEFA Presents
LIGA CALANIA : SEASON XIV


A new look, a new paymaster...but an ancient rivalry. After a long break, the Liga Calania returns under the auspices of COCANEFA, with the LigAnaia but not of it, and featuring ninety-six clubs from Krytenia and Starblaydia. The top division, also rather confusingly called the Liga Calania, contains twelve sides from either side of the Bekk gunning for pride and glory. Let's have a look at the runners and riders, shall we?

We start with the defending champions. Admittedly, in most situations, the term "defending champions" would be laughable when talking about a competition that's not been held for the better part of a century...but this is Telecontarë we're talking about. The team of nigh-immortal elves, bankrolled by Vanorian business and with talismanic striker Valrauncion back in the fold, will still be a tough nut to crack. Those most likely to do so, though, include the Starblaydi-turned-Krytenian's previous employers, Ousevale Borough. The Tigers were LigAnaia Grand Finalists last season, losing out only to Hastmead Diamante of Osarius, and will be hoping to topple Tele to top the tree. Chasing hard behind, meanwhile, are the team made famous by Simeone di Bradini; the red-clad players of Iskara Daii have proved in the past as mighty as the warriors from which they take their name. And let's not forget Avidia United, winners of the Liga Calania on four consecutive occasions.

There are lesser glories to be had, too, not least in the hunt for the Globe Cup spots. Both Mercia Bromham and Emberton Reds will be hoping to push the Big Four all the way; Foxchester Raiders, meanwhile, are one of those sides that always seem to be thereabouts, if not quite "there", and will likely be the highest placed of the Britannican sides. Behind them, Corinthian Spirits and their iconic yellow jerseys will be hoping to grace UICA competition next season. On the outside of that particular race, and hoping to at least finish in the top half, will be the likes of Hecia, Hallad Reavers, Casuals Osteria, and potential surprise package Ashton Olympic.

It's expected that the seemingly close abilities between the sides below the big guns could lead to one almighty scrap at the bottom. Hoping not to fall down, we have the remaining twelve sides in the division. Cedrus Soundgardia and Vecchio Victors, the only two sides in the top flight that spent last season below R49 level, will be the favourites; don't think for one second, though, that the Krytenians haven't got sides staring at the abyss pre-season. Beckton Supermarine always look an odd proposition in the top flight - even back in the O-League - and the likes of Stanton Town and Caledon Simpson are famed for flattering to deceive. New Cefn Albion, Montepool Waves, and Beverington Hawks all probably have enough about them to avoid a serious relegation threat; Hippion Overdrive, meanwhile, may struggle to live up to their moniker. Then, of course, there's Jhanna City and Royal Emberton, who probably see Job One as beating their cross-city rivals. Bradwell Saints, meanwhile, will be looking to get one over on near neighbours Stanton.


That's the combatants introduced, then...time to get this party started!

MATCHDAY ONE
Well, we named four title contenders, and true to form, they all kicked off with a win. True, none of them are actually top, but that's less due to anything they did and more a testament to Foxchester's annihilation of Jhanna City. Only Avidia of the main contenders struggled; a late winner, however, ensured they snuck past relegation favourites Vecchio.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 1-0 Casuals Osteria
Foxchester Raiders 4-1 Jhanna City
Caledon Simpson 0-3 Emberton Reds
Hecia 2-1 Royal Emberton
Vecchio Victors 1-2 Avidia United
Hallad Reavers 1-1 Hippion Overdrive
Montepool Waves 1-3 Beverington Hawks
Stanton Town 0-3 Ousevale Borough
Beckton Supermarine 1-3 Telecontarë
New Cefn Albion 1-2 Mercia Bromham
Bradwell Saints 2-4 Iskara Daii
Ashton Olympic 1-1 Corinthian Spirits


MATCHDAY TWO
Ouch. Iskara Daii don't take any prisoners, do they? Beckton are left with their tails between their legs as the men of Foundation Road put down an early marker, supplanting Foxchester at the top after the Raiders fell to the Royals. Ousevale and Mercia, meanwhile, are the only other sides on a 100% record after routine wins.

Results:
Jhanna City 1-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
Emberton Reds 1-1 Casuals Osteria
Royal Emberton 3-1 Foxchester Raiders
Avidia United 1-1 Caledon Simpson
Hippion Overdrive 1-0 Hecia
Beverington Hawks 2-3 Vecchio Victors
Ousevale Borough 4-1 Hallad Reavers
Telecontarë 2-2 Montepool Waves
Mercia Bromham 2-0 Stanton Town
Iskara Daii 7-0 Beckton Supermarine
Corinthian Spirits 1-0 New Cefn Albion
Ashton Olympic 1-2 Bradwell Saints


MATCHDAY THREE
Ousevale Borough play a game of "Anything You Can Do"; though the Daii beat the Waves four-one, the Tigers respond by thumping nine home away to Hecia. Mercia, too, make it three from three with a big win over Hallad Reavers. Big shock of the day, though, came courtesy of Cedrus, who beat Emberton Reds by the odd goal in five to put the pre-season relegation candidates in an impressive fifth place.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 3-2 Emberton Reds
Jhanna City 0-0 Royal Emberton
Casuals Osteria 3-2 Avidia United
Foxchester Raiders 3-2 Hippion Overdrive
Caledon Simpson 0-2 Beverington Hawks
Hecia 0-9 Ousevale Borough
Vecchio Victors 0-2 Telecontarë
Hallad Reavers 0-4 Mercia Bromham
Montepool Waves 1-4 Iskara Daii
Stanton Town 0-1 Corinthian Spirits
Beckton Supermarine 2-1 Ashton Olympic
New Cefn Albion 0-1 Bradwell Saints


MATCHDAY FOUR
Ah, the Journalists Curse. Having beaten one Emberton side, Cedrus fall hard to the other. They weren't the only side to have a disappointing week, though, as Ousevale follow their hammering of Hecia with a toothless display at home to the Raiders. One 100% record down, but two still remain, as Iskara Daii and Mercia Bromham both win to move up to first and second respectively.

At the bottom, meanwhile, New Cefn's win over Beckton gives them their first points of the season; spare a thought for Stanton, though, whose one-nil loss in the Abbia Mersa derby leaves them with no points and no goals from four games.

Results:
Royal Emberton 5-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
Avidia United 4-2 Emberton Reds
Hippion Overdrive 0-2 Jhanna City
Beverington Hawks 1-1 Casuals Osteria
Ousevale Borough 1-3 Foxchester Raiders
Telecontarë 3-1 Caledon Simpson
Mercia Bromham 3-2 Hecia
Iskara Daii 3-2 Vecchio Victors
Corinthian Spirits 1-0 Hallad Reavers
Ashton Olympic 1-0 Montepool Waves
Bradwell Saints 1-0 Stanton Town
New Cefn Albion 4-3 Beckton Supermarine


MATCHDAY FIVE
Well, there go the perfect records. Mercia's defeat to Foxchester was perhaps a little unfortunate; Iskara only getting a single point off Caledon Simpson, though, was frankly inexcusable. Not that the champions, mind, of course, as they moved up to second with a win over Casuals.

Good news at the bottom, too. Stanton may still not have scored this season, but they do at least have a point thanks to a goalless draw against Beckton.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 1-4 Avidia United
Royal Emberton 0-0 Hippion Overdrive
Emberton Reds 0-0 Beverington Hawks
Jhanna City 2-6 Ousevale Borough
Casuals Osteria 0-2 Telecontarë
Foxchester Raiders 1-0 Mercia Bromham
Caledon Simpson 1-1 Iskara Daii
Hecia 1-1 Corinthian Spirits
Vecchio Victors 3-3 Ashton Olympic
Hallad Reavers 1-1 Bradwell Saints
Montepool Waves 3-2 New Cefn Albion
Stanton Town 0-0 Beckton Supermarine


MATCHDAY SIX
The Starblaydi giants remain inseparable at the top after both secured solid, if unspectacular, wins. Corinth's win over Foxchester, meanwhile, puts them ahead of the Raiders in fourth place, with only Mercia spoiling the Purple Party. Ousevale's two-all draw with Royal Emberton does the Tigers no favours as they slip to fifth.

Oh, and Stanton are off the bottom with a win. Good for them.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 1-4 Avidia United
Royal Emberton 0-0 Hippion Overdrive
Emberton Reds 0-0 Beverington Hawks
Jhanna City 2-6 Ousevale Borough
Casuals Osteria 0-2 Telecontarë
Foxchester Raiders 1-0 Mercia Bromham
Caledon Simpson 1-1 Iskara Daii
Hecia 1-1 Corinthian Spirits
Vecchio Victors 3-3 Ashton Olympic
Hallad Reavers 1-1 Bradwell Saints
Montepool Waves 3-2 New Cefn Albion
Stanton Town 0-0 Beckton Supermarine


MATCHDAY SEVEN
I don't think the words "spectacular fashion" quite do justice to how Telecontarë's unbeaten record bit the dust. The elves were put well and truly to the sword by Avidia United; Iskara, meanwhile, remain top after beating the Reds and are a point clear of new second placed team Mercia Bromham...who also won away in Emberton.

And as one unbeaten record stands, so does a winless one. Hallad's draw with fellow strugglers Montepool Waves means that they're still without a victory seven games in.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 2-2 Beverington Hawks
Hippion Overdrive 0-3 Ousevale Borough
Avidia United 5-1 Telecontarë
Royal Emberton 0-1 Mercia Bromham
Emberton Reds 2-3 Iskara Daii
Jhanna City 2-1 Corinthian Spirits
Casuals Osteria 3-3 Ashton Olympic
Foxchester Raiders 1-0 Bradwell Saints
Caledon Simpson 1-0 New Cefn Albion
Hecia 0-0 Beckton Supermarine
Vecchio Victors 0-1 Stanton Town
Hallad Reavers 2-2 Montepool Waves


MATCHDAY EIGHT
The Eagles may have destroyed one side's unbeaten record; the Daii, though, proved an entirely different proposition, and the Starblaydia side remain top. Mercia also won - though less convincingly - against Hippion Overdrive to keep the gap at a solitary point. Indeed, with the top five all winning, it was left to Corinth to look upwardly mobile, as they leapfrogged Avidia with a draw against the mid-table Royals.

Also, a win over Bradwell lifts Jhanna's other club to ninth. The hell?

Results:
Ousevale Borough 1-0 Cedrus Soundgardia
Telecontarë 2-0 Beverington Hawks
Mercia Bromham 2-1 Hippion Overdrive
Iskara Daii 3-1 Avidia United
Corinthian Spirits 2-2 Royal Emberton
Ashton Olympic 0-2 Emberton Reds
Bradwell Saints 0-1 Jhanna City
New Cefn Albion 2-1 Casuals Osteria
Beckton Supermarine 0-4 Foxchester Raiders
Stanton Town 0-1 Caledon Simpson
Montepool Waves 1-3 Hecia
Hallad Reavers 0-0 Vecchio Victors


MATCHDAY NINE
Let's be honest, the Daii were never going to drop points against Beverington - and they didn't - so all eyes were on the Mercian Classico. Stylish football may have taken a bit of a holiday at the Southern Arena, but Mercia fans cared not a jot as they opened up the gap over their rivals. Telecontarë's wobble against Cedrus was just the icing on the bakewell.

At the other end, Hallad Reavers finally won a game...amd hauled themselves from bottom spot to just above the relegation zone in the process.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 3-2 Telecontarë
Ousevale Borough 0-1 Mercia Bromham
Beverington Hawks 0-2 Iskara Daii
Hippion Overdrive 0-2 Corinthian Spirits
Avidia United 1-2 Ashton Olympic

Casuals Osteria 5-2 Stanton Town
Foxchester Raiders 1-2 Montepool Waves
Caledon Simpson 1-3 Hallad Reavers
Hecia 2-0 Vecchio Victors


MATCHDAY TEN
Krytenia may have the Mercian Classico, but Starblaydia has the Clash of the Immortals. If you only ever see one Liga Calania game in your life, make it Iskara Daii versus Telecontarë. This particular match gave us a feast of football. It also gave us the Daii's first defeat of the season...and of course, Mercia took full advantage to go top for the first time.

Hallad, meanwhile, have gone from hopeless to full on RAWRCRUSH. Casuals didn't know what hit them.

Results:
Mercia Bromham 3-0 Cedrus Soundgardia
Iskara Daii 1-3 Telecontarë
Corinthian Spirits 3-5 Ousevale Borough
Ashton Olympic 2-0 Beverington Hawks
Bradwell Saints 3-1 Hippion Overdrive

Hecia 1-0 Caledon Simpson


MATCHDAY ELEVEN
Well, that didn't last long. Iskara return to the top as they topple Cedrus, whilst Mercia are busy getting spanked by the Spirits. Ousevale, Tele, and Foxchester also win to keep the pressure on the top sides; Jhanna City, meanwhile, continue to pleasantly surprise as they move into a Globe Cup spot.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-1 Iskara Daii
Mercia Bromham 1-3 Corinthian Spirits
Telecontarë 3-1 Ashton Olympic
Ousevale Borough 6-0 Bradwell Saints
Beverington Hawks 2-1 New Cefn Albion

Jhanna City 3-0 Vecchio Victors
Casuals Osteria 1-1 Hecia
Foxchester Raiders 2-1 Caledon Simpson


MATCHDAY TWELVE
If you want to know what the Liga Calania is all about, take a trip to Hecia. A nine-goal thriller, sadly, yielded zero points for the Starblaydi side as they were downed by Emberton Reds. Iskara Daii, too, were in close encounter, downing a dogged Ashton side by the odd goal in seven to maintain their one-point lead at the top of the table.

Results:
Corinthian Spirits 2-0 Cedrus Soundgardia
Ashton Olympic 3-4 Iskara Daii
Bradwell Saints 0-2 Mercia Bromham
New Cefn Albion 2-3 Telecontarë

MATCHDAY THIRTEEN
New Cefn Albion may be likely to do the square root of sod-all this season, but that doesn't mean they won't be making life interesting. The team from Krytenia's Druidan community shocked the Daii, and it's all change at the top as Mercia breeze past Beckton. Tele are lurking just behind after a similarly easy win over Stanton; the biggest win of the weekend, though, came courtesy of Hippion Overdrive, who put six past the increasingly laughably named Victors.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-1 Ashton Olympic
Corinthian Spirits 1-1 Bradwell Saints
Iskara Daii 1-2 New Cefn Albion
Mercia Bromham 4-0 Beckton Supermarine
Telecontarë 5-2 Stanton Town

Hippion Overdrive 6-0 Vecchio Victors
Avidia United 1-1 Hecia
Royal Emberton 2-2 Caledon Simpson
Emberton Reds 0-0 Foxchester Raiders
Jhanna City 4-1 Casuals Osteria


MATCHDAY FOURTEEN
What's the best tonic for being on the wrong end of a six-nil hammering? The incorrect answer is definitely "home match against Ousevale", as Vecchio found out the hard way. The Tigers are not missing Valrauncion one little bit, as they put eight past the hapless Victors and took their goals scored tally past fifty. Unfortunately for Ousevale, though, the three teams above them also won, so there's no change in the top four.

Results:
Bradwell Saints 1-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
New Cefn Albion 0-2 Ashton Olympic
Beckton Supermarine 1-2 Corinthian Spirits
Stanton Town 0-1 Iskara Daii
Montepool Waves 0-3 Mercia Bromham

Foxchester Raiders 0-3 Avidia United
Casuals Osteria 1-0 Royal Emberton
Jhanna City 0-2 Emberton Reds


MATCHDAY FIFTEEN
It looks like we've got a four-horse race at the top. Mercia, Iskara, Tele and Ousevale all won, and with Corinth and Foxhester falling over themselves in an effort to drop points, there's a six point gap between fourth and fifth.

Good news a little further down the table - at least if you're a Reds fan. The Emberton derby went the way of the visitors at Oxley Park, keeping them in touch for a Globe Cup spot.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 3-3 New Cefn Albion

Hippion Overdrive 2-1 Casuals Osteria
Avidia United 2-1 Jhanna City
Royal Emberton 1-2 Emberton Reds


MATCHDAY SIXTEEN
Time for the Midlanders to get themselves a bit of wriggle room. Their victory in Simpson can be best classed as "routine"; Iskara Daii, meanwhile, could only manage a draw away to hot and cold Hecia, whilst Telecontarë were downed in Foxchester and Ousevale could only wrest a point from Casuals.

Spare a thought, though, for Avidia United. Considered a strong prospect for the title, the Eagles have failed to launch, and languish in eighth place - a full sixteen points behind the leaders.

Results:
Beckton Supermarine 0-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
Stanton Town 1-1 New Cefn Albion
Montepool Waves 3-1 Bradwell Saints

Jhanna City 2-0 Beverington Hawks
Emberton Reds 2-0 Hippion Overdrive
Royal Emberton 2-2 Avidia United


MATCHDAY SEVENTEEN
So much for the wiggle room. Mercia lose to Casuals Osteria, a team surely better than their sixteenth place would suggest, and the lead at the top is halved to two points.

It's not the Daii behind them though - the Raiders saw to that - instead it's Telecontarë who sit second courtesy of a victory over Jhanna City. Ousevale lurk a further point behind in third place, also overtaking Jhanna's finest with another thumping victory. Emberton Reds were the helpless victims this time around.

The Globe Cup race receives a fresh twist, meanwhile, with Ashton Olympic sneaking into seventh place. Perhaps there'll be UICA football heading to the other Olympic Stadium this season.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-3 Stanton Town

Beverington Hawks 0-0 Royal Emberton
Hippion Overdrive 0-0 Avidia United


MATCHDAY EIGHTEEN
That odd strangulated screaming you hear is the sound of eleven Tigers being force-fed their own medicine. Avidia United suddenly remember how to play football, and crush Ousevale six-one. Ouch.

Down the road in Emberton, meanwhile, the Krytenian capital's clubs are involved - indirectly - in the battle for the top. Emberton Reds beat the morning leaders from Bromham (and move up to sixth in the process); the Royals, meanwhile, lose to Telecontarë, who finish the day atop the tree.

Montepool Waves 1-0 Cedrus Soundgardia

Hippion Overdrive 1-1 Beverington Hawks


MATCHDAY NINETEEN
Ladies and gentlemen, gather round...it's time for the Synchronised Choke!

Telecontarë's disappointing draw with the Overdrive is made to look positibely excellent as they somehow conspire to increase their lead at the top - albeit only by one point to a grand total of two. Mercia Bromham slip to third as they become the latest victims of the Avidia recovery, Ousevale are worse than dire in defeat to the Hawks, and it's the Daii back in second place thanks to a routine win.

All the top four, though, will be looking over their shoulders as Foxchester's merciless tonking of New Cefn puts them right back in the title hunt and just a solitary point behind Ousevale.

MATCHDAY TWENTY
So here's a question. If you're the leaders of the Liga Calania, and you're visiting the division's top scorers, what do you do?

If you said "disintegrate like wet toilet paper", well done. Telecontarë did just that against Ousevale, who showed all the mercy of your average comic book supervillain and hammered them seven-nil.

That's just cruel, Ousevale. No treats for you.

Mercia, meanwhile, fail to take advantage with a dour one-all draw in Beverington, and it's now the Daii back on top as they made no mistake away to Hippion.

Beverington Hawks 1-1 Mercia Bromham
Ousevale Borough 7-0 Telecontarë


MATCHDAY TWENTY-ONE
Occasionally, when the fates align just right, the fixture computer is a magnificent bastard of Machiavellian proportions. The top four were involved against each other in two massive ties. The Daii and Ousevale shared eight goals in a game that served the neutrals more than either team, and Tele returned to the top with a well-fought win over a resilient Mercia side.

Further down, Foxchester's recovery hit the skids as they were cleaved by the Reavers in Hallad, leaving the resurgent Eagles to steal fifth place - at least for now.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-4 Hecia
Vecchio Victors 0-0 Caledon Simpson
Hallad Reavers 2-0 Foxchester Raiders
Montepool Waves 1-4 Casuals Osteria
Stanton Town 0-1 Jhanna City
Beckton Supermarine 1-5 Emberton Reds

Bradwell Saints 0-1 Avidia United
Ashton Olympic 2-0 Hippion Overdrive
Corinthian Spirits 1-0 Beverington Hawks
Iskara Daii 4-4 Ousevale Borough
Mercia Bromham 1-2 Telecontarë


MATCHDAY TWENTY-TWO
Having come on strong in earlier weeks, Mercia Bromham are now in full-speed reverse. True, losing by a single goal to Iskara Daii isn't a terrible result, but they're losing ground fast on the top three and have the chasing pack breathing down their necks and smelling blood.

Elsewhere, Tele's win over the Spirits keeps them top, Ousevale decided it had been far too long since they'd given someone a proper tonking and put Ashton to the sword, and Avidia "entertained" Beckton.

And by "entertained", we mean "walloped into burger meat". Seriously, nine-one? That's just cold, Avidia.

(PS: Well done to Vecchio, who chalked up their first win since dinosaurs ruled the earth.)

Telecontarë 2-1 Corinthian Spirits
Mercia Bromham 1-2 Iskara Daii


MATCHDAY TWENTY-THREE
Telecontarë have never done things by halves. When they win, they win well; when they choke, they choke hard. Losing six-nil is embarrassing enough; doing so to Bradwell, who started the day sixteenth, is simply unfathomable. Iskara, meanwhile, only managed a draw against the Spirits, and they splutter almost apologetically to the top.

Watch out behind, though. Ousevale are just one point off top spot after - you guessed it - yet another hammering. Poor New Cefn didn't have a chance, and the Tigers have now scored an astonishing eighty-seven goals thus far this season. It's easy to forget they haven't actually been top since all the way back in Week Three.

Mercia, meanwhile, continue their retrograde transit of the Liga Calania; they were wretched against Ashton, and it's Avidia United flipping the fat lady the bird as they rise to fourth, catching eleven points on the leaders in the last seven games.

COCANEFA Presents
LIGA CALANIA : SEASON XIV
Part Two


When last we left our mighty warriors, Iskara and Tele were neck-and-neck at the top, with Ousevale close behind. Let's reverse the fixtures and complete the season...can the Daii hold on? Will the elves retain? Can the Tigers beat a four-goal-a-game average? And how soon will Vecchio be relegated?

Let's find out!

MATCHDAY TWENTY-FOUR
The top four ar "as you were" as all of them register wins; Telecontarë and Avidia, admittedly, only squeaking past the bottom two, but taking three points each nonetheless. Emberton Reds, meanwhile, rise to fifth as Mercia continue their winless run with a draw against lowly New Cefn.

Results:
Casuals Osteria 1-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
Jhanna City 1-0 Foxchester Raiders
Emberton Reds 2-0 Caledon Simpson
Royal Emberton 2-1 Hecia
Avidia United 1-0 Vecchio Victors
Hippion Overdrive 2-1 Hallad Reavers
Beverington Hawks 1-1 Montepool Waves
Ousevale Borough 5-0 Stanton Town
Telecontarë 2-1 Beckton Supermarine
Mercia Bromham 1-1 New Cefn Albion
Iskara Daii 5-1 Bradwell Saints
Corinthian Spirits 1-0 Ashton Olympic


MATCHDAY TWENTY-FIVE
Nobody at the top is even thinking about blinking. The top four all won once again, whilst fifth-places Reds lost ground with an exciting but ultimately unhelpful draw away to Casuals.

Stanton Town, meanwhile, are the latest team to benefit from Mercia's increasingly spectacular implosion. Money can't buy you form, clearly.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-1 Jhanna City
Casuals Osteria 3-3 Emberton Reds
Foxchester Raiders 0-1 Royal Emberton
Caledon Simpson 0-5 Avidia United
Hecia 1-0 Hippion Overdrive
Vecchio Victors 0-1 Beverington Hawks
Hallad Reavers 1-2 Ousevale Borough
Montepool Waves 1-3 Telecontarë
Stanton Town 3-0 Mercia Bromham
Beckton Supermarine 1-6 Iskara Daii
New Cefn Albion 1-0 Corinthian Spirits
Bradwell Saints 2-2 Ashton Olympic


MATCHDAY TWENTY-SIX
Montepool, Montepool, Montepool, what have you done? A late equaliser steals them a point at Foundation Road, and sees the Daii slump from first to third. Telecontarë are the new leaders, despatching bottom-feeders Vecchio, whilst Ousevale's six-one hammering of Hecia not only puts the Tigers second, but also takes them to the century mark in the "Scored" column. Valraunciwho?

Results:
...technical issues. Oops.


MATCHDAY TWENTY-SEVEN
Well, no sooner are Tele on top, they get toppled off. Caledon are resolute and take a point off the erstwhile leaders; Ousevale somehow snatch victory in a ding-dong battle in Foxchester and it's now the Tigers atop the summit. Mercia fail to win - again - but are somehow still sixth thanks to the Raiders and Corinth deciding to be equally inept. How inept? How does "allowed Beverington to catch up to them" sound?

MATCHDAY TWENTY-EIGHT
Welcome, one and all, to Liga Calania Hot Potato! Ousevale celebrate going top by dropping two points to Jhanna City(!), Iskara miss the chance to go top as they share three apiece with lowly Caledon Simpson, Telecontarë take the lead back with a nervy win over Casuals, and behind them all Avidia close the gap with an effortless win over Cedrus.

Mercia, meanwhile, finally get back to winning ways; they remain sixth, but are now seven points clear of Beverington "Seriously, How Are We Seventh?" Hawks.

Avidia United 4-1 Cedrus Soundgardia

MATCHDAY TWENTY-NINE
So, Tele draw, Ousevale draw, the Daii lose, Avidia lose, and Vecchio win.

I quit a hell of a matchday to quit drinking.

MATCHDAY THIRTY
The big game, of course, was at the White Tower; Telecontarë are fighting hard to retain the title, and did themselves all kinds of favours with a solid two-one win over four-time champions Avidia United. Unfortunately for them, their rivals won and won well, so there's no let up of the pressure on the elves.

Beverington, meanwhile, are quietly catching the stragglers in the top six. Surely it's too late to fight for a Champions' Cup spot, right? Right?

Results:
Beverington Hawks 2-0 Cedrus Soundgardia
Ousevale Borough 3-1 Hippion Overdrive
Telecontarë 2-1 Avidia United

MATCHDAY THIRTY-ONE
That's Avidia screwed for the title then. The Daii went all veni, vidi, vici at the New City Stadium, and seven goals later, they decided their work was done for the day.

The only downside for the men from Jhanna was that Tele and Ousevale both won too. As you were, then. Move along.

Ousevale Borough 1-0 Cedrus Soundgardia
Telecontarë 2-0 Beverington Hawks

MATCHDAY THIRTY-TWO
The Mercian Classico at the Cygnus produces a one-all draw that suits neither side.

Or so you'd think.

Telecontarë somehow manage not to beat Cedrus at home, the Daii can only muster a draw against somehow-relevant Beverington, and there is, surprisingly, no change in the top three. Avidia, though, do manage a win to keep their slim title hopes alive.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 3-2 Telecontarë

MATCHDAY THIRTY-THREE
Starblaydia's biggest domestic battle provides a decisive winner, and this might just be the week that we look back and say this is when Telecontarë won the title. Not only did they beat their fierce rivals, but Ousevale were undone at home to the Spirits. Hell, even Avidia lost, and they now have the combined forces of Emberton Reds and Mercia Bromham breathing down their necks.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 1-2 Mercia Bromham

Jhanna City 2-0 Montepool Waves
Casuals Osteria 1-0 Hallad Reavers
Foxchester Raiders 5-1 Vecchio Victors
Caledon Simpson 0-2 Hecia


MATCHDAY THIRTY-FOUR
It's not a good week to be a fan of the Nova Mercian clubs, that's for sure. Bradwell plunder a point from Ousevale, who are now six points off top spot and ahead of the Daii on goal difference. Mercia's defeat to Corinth, meanwhile, allows the Reds to steal fifth place from them. The side from the Krytenian capital could even snatch fourth next week, as Avidia's indifferent form continues with a disappointing draw in Stanton.

Results:
Iskara Daii 3-2 Cedrus Soundgardia
Corinthian Spirits 2-0 Mercia Bromham
Ashton Olympic 1-3 Telecontarë
Bradwell Saints 1-1 Ousevale Borough
New Cefn Albion 3-0 Beverington Hawks

Montepool Waves 1-0 Royal Emberton
Hallad Reavers 3-3 Emberton Reds
Vecchio Victors 0-3 Jhanna City
Hecia 3-0 Casuals Osteria
Caledon Simpson 0-0 Foxchester Raiders


MATCHDAY THIRTY-FIVE
Let's get one thing clear. Vecchio Victors are not relegated. Yet. There's still eleven more games to play, after all. It's just...well, they don't look like a side that want to stay up.

Just ask Royal Emberton, who helped themselves to six goals ansd three points.

At the business end of the table, meanwhile, the top seven all won, so no changes there.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-1 Corinthian Spirits
Iskara Daii 2-1 Ashton Olympic
Mercia Bromham 2-1 Bradwell Saints

MATCHDAY THIRTY-SIX
Telecontarë decide that if you're going to slip up, you might as well look good doing it. A tooth and nail battle against Stanton ends up with honours even, and what could prove to be a vital point in the Dockers' fight against the dreaded drop. Ousevale add yet more goals in their crushing victory over Montepool, and the gap is down to four. Iskara, meanwhile, have no such luck, and are in danger of losing touch with the top two.

Results:
Ashton Olympic 0-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
Bradwell Saints 0-1 Corinthian Spirits
New Cefn Albion 4-2 Iskara Daii
Beckton Supermarine 2-1 Mercia Bromham
Stanton Town 4-4 Telecontarë

Hecia 3-2 Avidia United
Caledon Simpson 0-1 Royal Emberton
Foxchester Raiders 1-0 Emberton Reds
Casuals Osteria 4-2 Jhanna City


MATCHDAY THIRTY-SEVEN
It's three-goal margins all round for the top three as Tele, Ousevale, and the Daii all win comfortably. As a side note, the elves' win over Hallad also ensures them UICA qualification.

At the bottom, meanwhile, Vecchio's defeat to the Tigers makes their mountain just that little bit higher; the Victors are now sixteen points from salvation.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 2-2 Bradwell Saints

MATCHDAY THIRTY-EIGHT
It's Ousevale's turn to drop points this week - just the two, though, and Caledon are grateful for the draw. Telecontarë, of course, don't mind in the slightest as they beat Hecia; Iskara Daii, meanwhile, also win to keep the pressure on.

Elsewhere, there's a delicious fruity slice of revenge for Royal Emberton as they make up for their derby defeat earlier in the season.

Results:

MATCHDAY THIRTY-NINE
C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!

Telecontarë can't keep it up forever, it would seem, and they're downed - at home - by Foxchester. Both Ousevale and the Daii notch up wins to close things up at the top.

At the bottom, meanwhile, Vecchio record only their fourth victory of the season. They may be going down, but at least they're making a decent fist of going down fighting.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 1-0 Beckton Supermarine
New Cefn Albion 1-0 Stanton Town

Hippion Overdrive 0-3 Emberton Reds
Avidia United 1-1 Royal Emberton


MATCHDAY FORTY
Can an elf choke? Yes. Yes they can. Jhanna City decide they're not going to be bowed by the defending champions, a draw ensues, and Ousevale's win over the Reds closes the gap to a single point.

Sadly for Iskara, though, they couldn't take advantage, as Globe Cup hunting Foxchester beat them by a solitary goal.

Results:
Stanton Town 4-0 Cedrus Soundgardia

Emberton Reds 0-3 Ousevale Borough
Royal Emberton 2-0 Beverington Hawks
Avidia United 4-0 Hippion Overdrive


MATCHDAY FORTY-ONE
Avidia United may be out of the title race, but they'll be damned if they're going to let Ousevale win it. The Eagles beat their rivals - sadly not six-one this time - and the Starblaydi clubs either side of them both win to pile on the misery.

At the bottom, we were expecting this to be the point at which Vecchio mathematically went down. Of course, nobody told the Victors that, and they defeated second-bottom Beckton to postpone the inevitable for another week.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 2-2 Montepool Waves
Stanton Town 1-1 Hallad Reavers

New Cefn Albion 1-3 Hecia

Ousevale Borough 0-1 Avidia United
Beverington Hawks 2-0 Hippion Overdrive


MATCHDAY FORTY-TWO
Surely not.

Surely, Vecchio can't pull it off, can they? Well, they're trying their damnedest. They're twelve from safety with four to play, it's true, but they won again, and that's all they can keep doing. If they stay up, it will be a miracle akin to Krytenia winning a semi-final.

At the top, meanwhile, Tele and Ousevale were barely tested as they breezed to wins. The Daii's tie with Royal Emberton, though, looks like being the end of their title aspirations.

Results:
Hallad Reavers 0-1 Cedrus Soundgardia

MATCHDAY FORTY-THREE
Back on Matchday Twenty, Telecontarë played Ousevale Borough and got whipped seven-nil.

Thankfully, though, in the return match, the elves fared better.

This time, Ousevale only managed four.

At the other end, Vecchio tried bravely, but were sunk by a parked bus. Never mind the kitchen sink, the Victors hurled the whole goddamn restaurant at Cedrus, but to no avail, and a nil-nil sends them to the Segunda. Now, if only they'd started to play like this in the first three quarters of the season...

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 0-0 Vecchio Victors - Vecchio are relegated

Telecontarë 0-4 Ousevale Borough


MATCHDAY FORTY-FOUR
Ousevale six, Iskara Daii one. Ousevale haven't just put a full stop on Iskara's season, they've formed an ellipsis with the Daii players' kidneys. Tele, meanwhile, decide five is enough against fifth-placed Mercia and stay one point clear.

At the bottom, Beckton are defeated by Emberton, and their top-flight status is hanging on by a rather ominously frayed-looking thread.

Results:
Hecia 3-1 Cedrus Soundgardia
Caledon Simpson 1-1 Vecchio Victors
Foxchester Raiders 1-0 Hallad Reavers
Casuals Osteria 2-0 Montepool Waves
Jhanna City 0-2 Stanton Town

Ousevale Borough 6-1 Iskara Daii
Telecontarë 5-0 Mercia Bromham


MATCHDAY FORTY-FIVE
Damn, Beckton, there's being relegated and there's being relegated in style. A seven-two defeat to Avidia United sends the Mariners down in spectacular fashion. They'll be taking the Overdrive with them, as Hippion lost to New Cefn, and Cedrus got a win that seals their survival.

At the top? All hell has broken loose. Telecontarë drop the ball - and all three points - Ousevale squeak past Ashton, and it's the Tigers' title to lose. A draw as good as does it, unless the elves somehow manage to beat Bradwell by seventy on the final day.

Results:
Cedrus Soundgardia 1-0 Caledon Simpson
Hecia 2-2 Foxchester Raiders
Vecchio Victors 0-2 Casuals Osteria
Hallad Reavers 1-1 Jhanna City

Iskara Daii 5-2 Mercia Bromham


MATCHDAY TWENTY-THREE
In the end, it was all a bit disappointing. Tele were never in it against Bradwell, who do the double over the elves, and Ousevale seal the title with a workmanlike victory over New Cefn.

Tabeck Cefn Druids, meanwhile, will be looking at some long trips next season, as they drop into the Liga Celesta to face twenty-three Krytenian sides.

The LigAnaia is back for season eleven, with changes rung since last season.

Previously, the leagues were set up as such: LigAnaia Calania on one side, featuring clubs from Krytenia, The Calanian Union, Royal Kingdom of Quebec and Ibex, and the LigAnaia: North East on the other side, featuring Audioslavian, Osarian, Starblaydi and Legalite clubs.

In the time between that season ending and this one beginning, Ibexian clubs have left the LigAnaia for money reasons - ie, Ibex has none - and teams from Semarland have taken their place. COCANEFA now has three constituent leagues: The Liga Calania, resurrected after a long absense, was initially due to incorporate the Ibexian clubs, but now contains just the main Krytenian and Starblaydi clubs, just like the old times. The LigAnaia: Calania and the LigAnaia: North-East have been rebranded as North/Nord and East/Est respectively, with Mertian, Quebecois and Semar clubs comprising the former and Audioslavian, Osarian and Legalite clubs the latter. As before, the champions of both LigAnaias will face each other in an end-of-season showdown to fight over who will become the true COCANEFA LigAnaia Champion.

First, though, let's meet the teams:

Image


Image
Marcus Williams (G , 24, OSR), Rosie Munro (G , 28, OSR), Alisa Robertson (D C, 25, OSR), Matjas Nordland (D C, 26, SEM), India Turner (D R, 24, OSR), Djair Claro-Hunt (D L, 16, SEM), Will Simpson (D L, 20, OSR), Julian Collingwood (D L, 26, BRE), Arndu Farsgaard (D LC, 33, COS), Louis Porter (DM C, 25, DRV), Daniele Gentile (M C, 20, OSR), Demetrio Constantini (M C, 21, OSR), Elaine Ashdown (M C, 26, NPH), Nicola Costello (M C, 27, OSR), Rene Claro-Hunt (AM C, 18, SEM), Peppin Ruel (AM C, 23, PAS), Reiss Claro-Hunt (F C, 18, SEM), Esteban Crespo (F C, 21, OSR), Elliot Francis (F C, 23, JEC), Ryan Watson (F R, 18, OSR), Jorit van Kruistum (F R, 26, PAS), Andrea Cawdor (F L, 24, NPH)

Being based in an industrial, mining city at the base of a frigid mountain range near the border with the nation’s most feared and hated neighbours should have hindered the growth of Diamante, really. Particularly since the club doesn’t exactly play in a way you’d expect, based on the locals. The club’s recent popularity at least is almost certainly due to their remarkable successes, but with each trophy comes more fans and greater pressure to succeed.

The manager, Benni Watson, is a former Osarius and Firewood City captain. He knows this all too well. His summer signings were, however, subdued. A few promising Semar youngsters, an experienced defender and a talented Pasargan playmaker. That’s all. Watson’s total outlay was less than 15m, suggesting a profound trust in the products of the club’s highly-rated youth academy. It’s not really up for debate that Diamante have plenty of talent on the books, but there are also just four players over the age of 25 in the first eleven, including goalkeeper Rosie Munro (who at 28, is hardly old, given her position). Much of their fate this season will depend on the maturity of the younger players emerging in the squad, but given past performances from the likes of Constantini, Gentile, Simpson and Turner… fans are unlikely to foresee much of a drop. If at all.

Tod Kerstens (G , 23, AUD), Kiki Nuremberg (G , 31, FEL), Jouard Caceres (D C, 22, AUD), Andrea Molovi (D C, 35, EQS), Emmanuel Awuah (D C, 18, SEM), Bastijn Fokke-Rommedahl (D R, 24, AUD), Kohev Küngas-Vaga (D L, 38, PIS), Ulrika Kinlasson (D/M C, 26, APX), Faeron Soldarian (DM C, 637, VAL), Flash Ripley Morrison (M C, 19, AUD), Corran Celgis (M C, 24, CEN), Sroel Cavan (M C, 22, ZEN), Wilfred Lidgley (M RC, 33, APX), Cyrus Damhan (M RC, 37, LGL), Jaime del Olmo (M L, 29, CEN), Lenka Randáková (M L, 28, PAS), Nestor Martinez (AM/F C, 19, SJG), Romelio Ceballos (F C, 22, PAS), Rauno Bickermann (F C, 26, PIS), Rodolfo Zelaya (F RLC, 27, SJG)

Hailing from the well-to-do Grand Forum sector of Cathair, the fashionable capital club 1830 Cathair have a rich history, being one of the first football clubs in all of Audioslavia, but their modern incarnation has seen them portrayed somewhat as spoiled rich kids, throwing money at some of the league’s smaller clubs in order to hoover up local talent. Cathair’s local rivals are traditionally the west-Cathair side Shamrock Cathair, but a decline in fortunes for the men in green, and the resurgence of previously unfashionable Cazadores Cathair, from the eastern docklands area of the city, has seen the Caza-Catha derby rise to infamy as one of the most fierce in Atlantian Oceania,

Bickermann and Zelaya will once again lead the line in a massively powerful attack, supplied by any four of Celgis (Cenian starlet), Lendakova (World Cup winner with Pasarga), Kinlasson (Apoxian international DM), Soldarian (Valanora legend), Damhan (Legalese legend), del Olmo (Cenian star player) or Wilfred Lidgley (the first face in the wall for any kind of LigAnaia Mount Rushmore) or any of the young up-and-comers in the form of Zenic’s Sroel Cavan, Ceni’s Corran Celgis or Audioslavia’s own Ripley Morrison. In defence, the flat back four of Caceres, Molovi, Kungas-Vaga and Fokke-Rommedahl is a formidable obstacle for any team to overcome.

Cathair have collected one of each of almost every available trophy in recent years - The LigAnaia Championship in season 8, the UICA Champions Cup and Supercup in season 9 and the COCANEFA Cup in season 10. Only the Cygnus Cup and AOCL have proven elusive. They are in contention for the Cygnus Cup this year, but nothing short of a league win will satisfy their fans in season eleven.

Comunas Cougars exploded onto the scene in season four - the freshmen year for Legalite clubs in the LigAnaia - and finished in third place, qualifying for the Champions Cup and being unlucky not to place higher. The next season, however, saw a rapid fall from grace. Cougars’ form deteriorated rapidly at the start of the year and the side never really clawed their way back, finishing down in tenth place - only just enough for a Globe Cup place. Previous seasons have seen some rebuilding, but the side are usually loathe to spend money in the transfer window and one feels that, without an influx of money and players, the Legalite powerhouses may well struggle again to break the top five again.

Football in Audioslavia has two main hotbeds - Cathair in the centre and the mountainous Tzierra region to the south-east, and if 1830 are the kings of Cathair, there’s no doubt which team have claimed the title of ‘King of the Mountains’ in recent years. ‘Zozi’, usually resplendent in their trademark ‘silver and salmon’’ (grey and pink to you and me) hoops, are two-time LigAnaia champions. 1830 Cathair are the club’s biggest rivals, but Zozites differ on who their local rivals are, as there are a slew of local clubs to choose from. KT Ferrmendiak, KT Moreazerua and KT Itzalovalle are the biggest teams from the region, but its the latter who have been closest to Zozi in recent years.

The team itself are strong, if not quite as strong on paper as the Catharans. Goalkeeper Abraham Terrazas has proved himself a calm head between the sticks in recent years, despite his youth. That calmness could be down to the strength of the defence, lead by club captain Patrick Courtois and local hero Orson Faulkner, he of the championship-winning goal in season five. A strong four-man midfield has been the motor behind Zozi’s success in recent years, and with Osarian international Fabio Mancini joining the likes of Sterling Rose, Txordin Etxehartzaren and Etamara Kulkkiia in an overpowered engine room, supplying a star-studded attacking line in which Apexarena, Aurrekoetxia, Bottlegreen and Tinuviel will compete for playing time, Zozi fans are confident of bettering last season’s disappointing fifth-placed finish.

KT Itzalovalle have positioned themselves as Audioslavia’s third best team, having been one of the few ever-presents in the top division and with a string of Globe Cup qualifications under their belt. The side have kicked on in recent years, finishing a massively impressive sixth last season and almost out-pointing their long standing rivals 1830 Cathair for the first time in LigAnaia history. With Starblaydi clubs having left for the newly formed COCANEFA Liga Calania, Itzi may even be looking towards Champions Cup qualification this year.

The team is a strong one, if lacking in identifiable names compared to the top two Audioslavian clubs. Mezei Orban and Onesime Rios are the midfield men the club looks to in times of need, but with neither getting any younger, the door remains open for a superstar to push Itzi into the next realm.

For years, Evo have been the redheaded middle stepchild of the Fourgian clubs; easily the most-hated team to come out of North-West Osarius. Under Jonathan Herd, they developed a knack for winning cups, though, and clawed their way back among the elite. The departure of Jerome Monroe will hurt them, but with all that cash to spend, Herd upgraded the midfield considerably. In the young Semar duo of Adebayo and Sambu, he has what he hopes is a midfield to rival the vaunted engine room of Evo’s halcyon days, with Malachi Lubret; Jermain Lewis’ infamous “co-enforcer” with the national team.

It has to be said that Evo are more than just a team of thugs, though. Zapata and Tedesco in particular are tidy midfielders, and even though the captain, Greg Reid, isn’t the most technically gifted of the bunch, his tactical awareness is invaluable. Up front, the recruitment of Octavius Ioda - previously one of the most expensive players in the multiverse - at a cut price perhaps typefies the club and manager. Ioda is physical, but technically capable; and the club didn’t pay more than necessary to get him. It is hoped that he will complement emerging Nepharim forward Theodora Covenant, holder of the undisputed title of the club’s main goal-getter, in what is likely to be a hard-working, “old-school” system.

The Tyrellia Titans side, poor relations of local rivals International of Tyrellia since the Legalite teams entered the LigAnaia, used to make a nasty habit of finishing rock bottom of the LigAnaia. Season eight was one such occasion, but the bisecting of the LigAnaia into eastern and northern portions gave the Titans a reprieve from relegation, and the Titans grabbed their second chance and ran with it. Twelfth in season nine, eighth in season ten - a spot in the Globe Cup to boot - Titans actually finished above their fierce local rivals Inter for the first time since Legalite clubs joined the LigAnaia. The squad, barely changed and with plenty of experience, have probably already peaked, but fans remain confident of another top-ten finish this season too.

Oh how the mighty have fallen! Named as Osarius’ UICA club of the century not too long ago, Firewood City have huffed and puffed, struggling against the threat of falling into mid-table obscurity ever since joining LigAnaia. There has been a problem here for some time. The huge expenditure under Ryerson didn’t solve it, and now Williams’ attempts are taking too long for a notoriously demanding fanbase. In fairness to the fans, the club isn’t lacking talent in the slightest, so it’s baffling to see them struggle, and as it continues more and more eyes are looking upward, beyond the manager. Chairman Myles Atkinson is slowly losing the respect of the fans, though it’s hard to see what more he could be doing.

Once again, Firewood have made dramatic changes to their midfield, though the risk seems to be far more calculated this time. At least financially, anyway. The signing of Emilio Tapia was the biggest one the club made this summer, and is perhaps the biggest indicator of just how far they have fallen. Tapia was tipped to be a long-term successor to Roque Acosta a few years ago, yet Firewood picked him up on the cheap from Dynapolis United. It’s unlikely that he is “the answer” to the club’s woes, but it is abundantly clear that Williams is trying to rebuild this team with hardworking, professional players to take the place of what many fans have termed “overpaid pricks”. We’re also yet to see anything from the highly-rated youngsters the club picked up a couple of years ago… maybe this year is the year. Desperate times, and all that.

International of Tyrellia are one of the powerhouses of Legalite football, but have thus far failed to truly impress in the LigAnaia. Fans of the club have lowered their expectations in recent years, content with Globe Cup qualification and a decent showing in UICA’s secondary competition. Their success may depend on how the side continue to cope without Cyrus Damhan, the Legalite legend who left for 1830 Cathair.

Bob’s Towing are perhaps the most bizarrely named of the LigAnaia’s Legalite representatives, but the side are one with the most interesting story behind them. The outfit sprung up as a youth team, when the Darland brothers, Jimmy and Vincent, convinced their father, Robert, to have his service station sponsor their youth team. As such, the name emblazoned on their shirt read Bob’s Towing. Jimmy turned out to be good enough to keep his friends in the game, as the club moved up from recreational youth play, to local pub leagues, to becoming a semi-professional force, enough to earn an invite into the national championship program, as well as full sponsorship from Gamma Apparel, also based in Plainsview. Despite winning the first National Championship, the fortunes of Towing have sagged of late, with the Darlands now relegated to the front office. It is up to manager Casnar Golt to turn their fortunes around, before their story remains just an old memory.

Nelson Mavuanga (G , 19, SEM), Blaise N'Zonzi (G , 26, SEM), Jorge Santana (D C, 23, OSR), Bradley Porter (D C, 24, OSR), Roman Linares (D C, 25, OSR), Josep Paul (D R, 22, SAN), Jakob Nikkel (D R, 27, POL), Octavio Virgili (D L, 21, SAN), Elena Ortiz (D L, 27, OSR), Enwezor Refik (DM C, 24, DSM), Yohannes Marcussen (DM C, 28, SEM), Carina Prieto (M C, 18, OSR), Alan Drummond (M C, 21, OSR), Nathan Henstridge (M C, 24, ERS), Damian Munoz (M C, 24, OSR), Jess Curtin (M C, 26, BRE), Séraphin Török (F C, 20, FFD), Ashley Saunders (F C, 21, OSR), Shafqat Tariq (F C, 23, PAT), Javier del Olmo (F R, 20, CEN), Jason Goulding (F R, 22, QUE), Dominick M'Bia (F L, 19, SEM)

Utica’s age policy - wherein they seldom retain players beyond the age of 28 - has served them well in the past, but fans are starting to question the wisdom of late. With the youth academy not graduating enough top talent through from the affiliated University side, allowing their veterans to leave is holding the team back. Manager Ruben Contreras - a natural Tamarindo, who freely embraced Tubrissian culture and citizenship many moons ago - has shown a strong willingness to stick to tradition, though, and it’s hard not to wonder whether this will come back to bite him on the arse.

To be sure, Contreras has assembled a fine squad, with many talented youngsters, but the departure of proven goal threat Jefferson Madera is huge. Goulding and del Olmo are both clearly talented players, as is the on-loan M’Bia, but not one of them shows the same knack for scoring from wide as the Aquilliano winger did. La Naranja will, as always, seek to dominate possession, and rely on the partnership of Drummond and Saunders to score the goals needed to stay afloat in a strong LigAnaia East. This is not to say that Utica lack other strong forwards, but even Contreras would be hard pressed to shoehorn more than four or five into his squad. This of course overlooks the major issue in this Utica side… frankly, it’s hard to see how they will stack up when under pressure. Captain Jorge Santana aside, this is a team lacking any notable strength defensively. It’s not really surprising Blaise N’Zonzi is overwhelmingly first choice for Semarland; he’s got to be nigh-on superhuman to keep Utica out of trouble at times. If Utica are to build on their admirable progress in recent years, Contreras needs to address that weakness.

In Cathair, the second club right now is Cazadores Cathair, poor relations of 1830 Cathair and a team who have a habit of hemorrhaging their best players to their cross-city rivals. RJ Styrn and Espiridon Caszely have both flown the roost in recent years, albiet for a fair amount of money, and Cazadores have generally struggled to keep pace especially as their conveyor-belt of youth talent appears to have gone on the blink.

Cazadores Cathair are a side most Audioslavian neutrals - ie, those Audioslavians not living in Cathair, Oljestaden or Tzierra, whose constituent football clubs dominate the Audioslavian footballing landscape - can get behind. Cazadores, based on the eastern outskirts of the capital city, have long played a brand of exciting, attacking football, and despite their lack of resources have been more than capable of mixing it with the big boys since their first season in the top flight. Season after season of battles against relegation gave way to last year’s flirtation with the fringe of the Globe Cup spots, and the side will look to kick on this season. All they’ll have to make sure of is that rowdy duo Rook Cathar and Anderson Sandro can be kept out of trouble, both on and off the field.

A yo-yo club for so long, Draig Goch’s fortunes have settled since the LigAnaia was split into two, with a fourteenth and fifteenth place finish in recent years. Few teams, however, feat the men from the Legalese mainland, and though loanee goalkeeper Encarnacion and young Sunrisian Shichio Taki have been brought in to strengthen the squad, little is expected of the side this year.

Of the two Hasiera clubs, Tout-Puissant and Tenth Star, the Francophone club are decidedly the least popular, but that hasn't stopped the club from etching out a spot in one of the world's toughest leagues in recent years. While TSH have struggled, TPH have flourished, and they will look to build on last season's successful escape from the relegation zone.

Turic is a strange city at the best of times. Their relegation, and subsequent un-relegation last year was celebrated twice. Despite this strangeness - or perhaps because of it - the fans are generally unwavering in their support. No matter what. That mentality makes it easy for new players to settle in, and youngsters flourish, even with the charismatic Roberto Cormega now gone. Cormega’s replacement, former Turic playmaker and captain Gremio, has continued much of his predecessor’s work, however. Grasshoppers needed only make one signing this summer, bringing in Karly Thirtyninth to add depth to a well-balanced midfield.

The entire squad is balanced, in fact. There are a few standout players, but they’re all young, and rated mostly on potential. The core of the team has an odd parity in quality that means there are no real weaknesses in the south-western club. On the flipside, there are no clear strengths either, and the level of parity the club has achieved doesn’t appear to be enough to stay in the top flight. Gremio knows he’ll have a tough time keeping the team in the top division, but one suspects he is playing a long game; Turic know they have some highly talented youngsters poised to break through, a tough season now might pay dividends later down the line.

After the departure of their mega-rich benefactor a few years ago, Shanak have struggled immensely. Crippled under the weight of remaining debt, the club has struggled to stay afloat, relying on seasoned veterans signing at cut prices, and hoping to discover a diamond or two in the rough that is their very existence. That Ikenna Enyeama is still in a job, despite leading the team to a dreadful record over the past three years of his tenure, speaks volumes. Sure they could have sacked him, but they can barely afford to pay him off, and frankly, nobody else wants the job.

Losing Aaliyah Johnson is a massive blow on the pitch, where her goals were absolutely vital to the club even standing a chance of survival until the latter stages of last season. Sadly, her would-be replacement, Semar teenager Idris Albridge, is unlikely to have as many goals in him. As if losing his top scorer wasn’t bad enough, Enyeama also has to take on the seemingly impossible task of keeping Shanak in the top flight without her leading creator either. Alex O’Hara departing came as no shock, given how much the club needed to raise funds, but it doesn’t lessen the blow. Failure to stay up this season will likely see the departure of the club’s remaining stars; Igbeze and Okereke. And with them will evaporate any chance of seeing Shanak return to the top flight in the foreseeable future. Survival is a must for the Dynapolitan side this season; and with the experience in the squad, it might just be possible.

Founding members of the LigAnaia, it took KT Moreazerua very little time to get themselves relegated, finishing fourth from bottom, third from bottom and bottom over their first three seasons. A short stay in the second flight was followed by a promotion and then another relegation season, and it was in the second flight that they stayed for six whole cycles before earning their way back up via a third-placed finish last year.

Based in the talent-rich Tzierra/Herradura region of Audioslavia, Mozi are very much the third best side in the area after 2x LigAnaia champs Izotz Zubia and former national cup winners Itzalovalle.

The side wearing the famous purple with red trim this season are largely unknowns with two notable exceptions: Tomas Koudela, the road-weary Mytanar who had made his name in The Ineivtable Syndicate, and young gun Kelvin Lisco, the subject of a strange pre-season transfer - strange due to the fact that Lisco is just fourteen years old. Lisco won’t start most games, but the Sunrisian contingent of Verdinha, Cursopoli and Andrade very much should if Mozi are to get anything from this season.

Rye's Landing's promotion last season came as a massive surprise. Fancied as mid-table second-division chancers before the season had begun, RLFC compounded all expectations to snatch promotion to the top league. Remaining here... is a big ask.

Much like Firewood, Greeningham are a side who have had to adapt. A lot. The northern Applegrass side contested a fierce rivalry with Firewood for much of last century, only to see their red-and-black clad rivals scamper away with title after title, and eventually into another league entirely. Well… Greeningham are here now. Realistically, the fans will just be hoping to survive, and maybe bloody their old rivals in the process.

By snatching up Jefferson Madera from Utica, they have one of the most dangerous goal threats on the wing, but outside that… their attacking strength is unproven. A lot of eyes are on the teenage Perea; who has been tipped as a future international, but that’s a long way away, surely? Prijpati might have what it takes, but you can’t expect too much from a free transfer out of a relatively unknown league. For fans of a team that was often considered the best attacking side in Osarius in years past, this is going to be an odd experience.

However, despite their lack of obvious strength up front, Greeningham possess a solidity in defence that they have rarely enjoyed in the past. Between Butler and Bailey - two emerging stars in what some believe might be a second “golden generation” of Osarian football - the Greens will be tough to break down. In an unforgiving league like LigAnaia East, that might just be their saving grace come season’s end.

Encarnación (G , Elf, AUD), Wim de Snaaijer (G , 20, AUD), Inaki Larrea (D C, 25, AUD), Kendrick Wildey (D C, 34, LGL), Evan Lefebre (D C, 28, LGL), Barbiroto (D C, 23, WSI), Filipe Anders (D C, 22, WSI), Humberto Briand (D R, 30, AUD), Randall Clyde (M C, 36, AUD), Malagueta (M C, 22, WSI), Azucena Llorente (M R, 17, AUD), Bruno Sorrisos (M RC, 26, WSI), Keagan Pascarella (F C, 33, LGL), Margarida Benita (F RC, 22, WSI)

There's a veritable feast of football in Tzierra this year. Not only are AC Izotz Zubia and KT Itzalovalle strong candidates for silverware, the region has also seen two new clubs promoted into the top flight - the aforementioned Mozi, and KT Ferramendiak, or 'Feri' for short.

Feri have spent the bulk of their modest existence in the lower and middle leagues of the LigAnaia. A thin yet talented squad may struggle against the pace of the LigAnaia this season, but that won't stop their fans from dreaming of bigger things than simply avoiding relegation straight back down to the R49.

ImageBlades ex Magnaeus (FORMERLY KNOWN AS MAGNAEUS CITY)
Riding high last season as the world's #1 team according to the UICA Rankings, Magnaeus City nevertheless needed to undergo a transformation. With their home city of Magnaeus being engulfed by the encroaching Calanian desert, the team did as many of their compatriot teams had done in recent years and upped sticks to move north of Lake Bekk to Mertagne, settling in the city of Bretsaar. The team flirted with a complete name-change to Blades of Bretsaar, but have kept the Magnaeus moniker that made them famous worldwide. 'Magnaeus' would like to keep hold of their #1 ranking, but so much more is their desire to finally win the LigAnaia championship that has somehow eluded them on their quest to become the world's number one team.

ImageMontreal Koreana
The Kingdom's marquee club ran amok in season nine, winning the LigAnaia: Calania title at a canter but coming up short in the grand finale against Hastmead Diamante. Strong off their championship season, they bring vast majority of their starters back. This team is by all means solid in almost all aspects. Their defence and goalkeepers are all responsible and mature, while highly-talented rookie Philip-Michel Schneiderlin is expected to join in Koreana's formidable midfield. Koreana's midfield, strong in recent years, wasn't quite so dominant last season, and it remains to be seen how they will adapt to the new season.

ImageSt Johns Arsenal
Arsenal, from Newfoundland, can call themselves Quebec's second team, even if they are a fair few steps behind champions Montreal Koreana. Last season's fourth place was a great coup for the club, even if it didn't come with Champions Cup football due to UICA regulations. Arsenal will look to continue up the table, or at least catch up to where rivals Montreal Koreana are.

ImageFligsive FC
Fligsive are, so far, the only Calanion side to have won the LigAnaia, having done so in season three. Fligsive have gone from strength to strength in UICA competition, but the side’s league form, however, has dropped off in recent years. The side had a run of four finishes in the top two at one point - usually coming up through the table with a late charge - but a sixth-placed finish in season six was nothing short of disaster. That Fligsive have failed to finish in the top three in the last four seasons is a point of contention for the fans.

Fligsive are, once again, in the Champions Cup this season. It remains to be seen how strong the team will be this year. One thing is sure: They haven't quite adapted to their new home of Luhwel-Besny island since evacuating their stricken home of Fligsive 18 months ago.

ImageTrojana Condommakers
'Trojana City' is a name often erroneously used for the team from Trojana-Trojanaja. 'Trojana Condommakers' is usually shortened to 'Trojana C.' in the more conservative parts of the north east, and there are some who believe the Quebecois works team to be from a city of the same name.

'TC' have a defensive, prophelactyc style of play. Because of course they do.
ImageCSKA Quebec
Quebec City's former army club are famed throughout the north for their aggressive, attacking football - the likes of which propelled them to a commendable thirteenth place in the league last season. They, likewise, are also very popular team for traditional Quebecois fans, who still remember the days when CSKA used to be among top 2 teams to battle for Q-League Championships with their traditional rivals in none other than Montreal Koreana. They never struggle in filling their stadium, a feat that's even more impressive: At a hundred and forty-five thousand seats there are few teams in the world who could close, and even fewer who could make the noise the CSKA faithful can.

ImageCentury Mertagne
Century Mertagne, formerly known as Crystal Mertagne, are a team that nowadays have little to do with the nation that shares their name. While an amazing, table topping finish isn’t exactly on the cards for the northern Syndicatian team, Century are looking to avoid both a lawsuit with the new nation and relegation from the top flight. They may not look like the men to do it, but sometimes the underdogs can end up surprising us all.

ImagePapillio Mertagne
Pavillion aren't the most fashionable side in the LigAnaia; they've been relegated from the top flight before and are rarely seen without the hunted expression of a team in the midst of a relegation dogfight, but recent modest successes may well galvanize an often overlooked club with as much potential as any other you'd care to name.

ImageKurtz Herritik
The heretics were the first Mertagne-based side to make it to the top flight of the LigAnaia. They've found things tough going so far, but a recent influx of money, and players, means the future is bright for the Mertians.

ImageLondon FC

ImageLehen Neorudo
Lehen Neorudo were one of the first Mertian teams to join the LigAnaia. They weren't really supposed to get promoted last season, but the exodus of Ibexian and Krytenian clubs has created a gap in the top league that Lehen were able to fill. How they fare in this top league is anyone's guess.

ImageSix Star Cyanaes
Six Star Cyanaes, a minor footnote in LigAnaia football up to now, were promoted last season despite finishing twenty-eighth in the second flight, due to the league's complicated rules on quotas. Surely the Mertians have utterly no chance this season?

Previously famed for their utter lack of silverware, Magnaeus win the COCANEFA Cup with a narrow victory over Krytenians Avidia United, adding it to their haul of two AOCL titles in two seasons - a number they were unfortunately not able to increase to three this season. Nevertheless, BxM will represent the confederation in the Cygnus Cup, and add another trophy to their collection

We're a bit like that big blob in Akira only with the North East of Atlantian Oceania as our post-apocalyptic dystopian Tokyo (so not that much of a difference, then)

The Repechage 49 is a massive forty-nine team second flight, serving both the LigAnaia East and the LigAnaia North. Each team plays each other just the once, with home and away games balancing to twenty each per season. Only the top two are automatically promoted, while a further two will also go up depending on which teams are coming down from the top divisions.

Semarland's middling teams struggle in their first season in the LigAnaia system. That is, except for Kangemark Sport, who win the league a hair's width in front of LC Capitals. The two sides are promoted to the LigAnaia North and East respectively.
