Right then - here goes:

Season Thirteen of the West Zirconian National League.
Unlucky for Banks this time round - or just for everyone else?

And for those who don't know what I'm talking about...

Code: Select all
Season  Champions             Runners-up             Third Place

 1       Banks                Bradley Hornets        St. Martin University*
 2       Banks                Markham                St. Martin University*
 3       Houghton Kestrels    Civil Service          Banks   
 4       Bradley Swifts       Banks                  New Toronto
 5       Banks                St. Martin University* Markham
 6       Stanley United       Moorcroft Wanderers    Houghton Kestrels
 7       Banks                Bradley Hornets        St. Martin University*
 8       Banks                Bradley Hornets        Markham
 9       Banks                Bradley Hornets        Mort Park
 10      Banks                Markham                Stanley United
 11      Banks                St. Martin University* Stanley United
 12      Banks                Stanley United         Civil Service

* now playing as Etruria


So there you go. Now you know why no-one else likes them.

Especially not New Toronto fans, who did at least manage to score one goal to Banks' ten in their opening match. In fact Banks won their first twelve matches, scoring a total of 58 goals in the process. Another ten-goal game - this time a 10-3 win at Hyland Town - helped the Banks goal count. No doubt some at the bottom end of the table would love to score 58 goals all season, but that's another story.

In fact, it took 16 games for Banks to be defeated, 2-1 at Ashton Rovers. The league by this time became a race for second place, with Hyland Town, Mort Park, Bradley Hornets, Redwood Forest and Moorcroft Wanderers (the last two newly-promoted) in contention.

Interestingly, New Toronto avenged their 10-1 defeat with a 4-2 win over the perennial champions, but Banks were still eleven points clear of Mort Park in second. The top two then broke away, and Banks won by twenty points, Mort Park taking second by a further ten.

At the other end, founder members St. Andrew's came so close to relegation, but a good run at the end of season pulled them out of the mire, leaving city rivals East Snaith and Ashton Rovers. one of only three teams all season to beat Banks, to their Second Division fate.

** now playing as Mount Vernon


Hopefully the Second Division would be a little bit closer. Well, it couldn't be any less so, could it?

In contrast to Banks' 15-match unbeaten start, it took just seven games for the last unbeaten record, that of Moorcroft City, to fall with a 3-2 defeat at AFC Stanton. By half-way, no single team dominated, with Moorcroft City and Crompton Town tied in first place, only twelve points ahead of last-placed Stanley Athletic. (Take note, First Division.)

In the end, it was AFC Stanton who pulled ahead at the crucial moment, with Crompton Town returning to the First Division with them. Moorcroft City's famous habit of self-destruction took them from top to fifteenth in just half a season.

Meanwhile, on to the West Zirconian Cup.

Code: Select all
Season  Champions             Runners-up           Final Score             

 1       Markham             Houghton Kestrels       3-1       
 2       Stanley United      Banks                   4-1

 10      Banks               Stanley United          4-3aet
 11      Bradley Hornets     Taylor's Cross          2-0
 12      Etruria             Banks                   1-1aet (3-0pen)


At least there's one competition in West Zirconia not dominated by Banks. For now, anyway.

Notable upsets in the First Round were Hilton Athletic's 2-0 win at Anderton Town, and Skelton Town's 2-0 win over holders Etruria. Elwell Harriers continued last season's good work with a 4-2 win against Mount Vernon.

First Round
Tîm Cymru 3-1 McLaughlin Islands
West Coast Angels 1-1 Crompton Town
Replay: Crompton Town 0-0 West Coast Angels (1-0 AET)
Redwood University 3-1 Bradley University
Kirkham Town 2-2 Buckby Town
Replay: Buckby Town 1-3 Kirkham Town
Walton 3-2 St. Martin Athletic
Anderton United 3-2 Wolverton Town
Moorcroft City 2-0 Underwood Town
St. Martin Medical Institute 1-0 Prifysgol Gymraeg Caernewydd
AFC Stanton 4-3 Sephton RMI
Currie 2-1 Stanley Athletic
Anderton Town 0-2 Hilton Athletic
Skelton Town 2-0 Etruria
Elwell Harriers 4-2 Mount Vernon
Felton Athletic 2-1 Sephton County

The Second Round is where all the First Division teams come and try their luck against lower opposition with nothing to lose. Strugglers Walton won 2-1 at Bradley Swifts, while the main shock saw Skelton Town beat Stanley United 3-1.

Second Round
Tîm Cymru 2-3 Currie
St. Andrew's 0-1 Civil Service
Redwood Forest 6-1 Kirkham Town
Bradley Swifts 1-2 Walton
Moorcroft City 2-7 Banks
Moorcroft Wanderers 0-1 Ashton Rovers
East Snaith 0-3 Taylor's Cross
Skelton Town 3-1 Stanley United
Markham 4-2 Felton Athletic
Elwell Harriers 2-2 Houghton Hawks
Replay: Houghton Hawks 2-0 Elwell Harriers
Redwood University 0-2 Houghton Kestrels
Mort Park 3-1 St. Martin Medical Institute
Crompton Town 2-2 AFC Stanton
Replay: AFC Stanton 0-4 Crompton Town
Bradley Hornets 6-1 Anderton United
Hyland Town 4-0 Combined Armed Forces
Hilton Athletic 1-2 New Toronto

There's always a Non-League team that upsets its way through the competition. This time, it's the turn of Skelton Town, with a 2-1 win at Civil Service. Currie's 2-0 win at Ashton Rovers was insignificant in comparison.

Third Round
Banks 4-1 Houghton Hawks
Bradley Hornets 1-7 New Toronto
Redwood Forest 2-0 Hyland Town
Markham 4-1 Mort Park
Civil Service 1-2 Skelton Town
Walton 2-2 Crompton Town
Replay: Crompton Town 1-2 Walton
Ashton Rovers 0-2 Currie
Houghton Kestrels 0-2 Taylor's Cross

The Skelton challenge ended in the Quarter-Final, with a 3-1 defeat at home to Redwood Forest.

Quarter-Final
Skelton Town 1-3 Redwood Forest
Banks 8-2 Walton
Taylor's Cross 2-1 Currie
New Toronto 2-3 Markham

One Semi-Final went as predicted, much to Markham's annoyance.
The other didn't, much to Taylor's Cross' embarrassment.

Semi-Final
Taylor's Cross 3-3 Redwood Forest
Redwood Forest 2-2 Taylor's Cross (3-3 AET) (Redwood Forest wins 2-0 on penalty kicks)
Aggregate: Taylor's Cross 6-6 Redwood Forest

Banks 4-0 Markham
Markham 0-3 Banks
Aggregate: Banks 7-0 Markham


So Banks-Redwood in the final. Another upset on the cards, or just another dose of predictability?

Well, believe it or not...

Final
Redwood Forest 4-3 Banks

Sorthern Football League, 2038 season


Shield

Yawn.

Corcaigh 2-1 Actarius Athletic


First Division

Finally, after five season, finally, the mighty Corcaigh have been toppled. Although welcome, the fall of the four times in a row champions is a bit of a surprise. Not because Corcaigh themselves had been getting stronger, it seemed their challengers were getting weaker. Many if not all pundits predicted a fifth straight title for Corcaigh, and few considered any team of having much of a chance to challenge them. To say Snowspire came from near obscurity to win the league would be true, to say they got lucky wouldn't. They, along with Castrograd, displayed championship winning form all season and were good enough to push the previously unbeatable Corcaigh down to third place, and “only” into the Preliminary rounds of the TakilQuip Champions Cup. It's also incidentally the first time in the four tier era of the Sorthern Football League that Corcaigh have failed to win the top division.

The top of the table wasn't alone in witnessing the fall of champions though, as former champions Beningrad and Septentrionien de Finistère become probably the biggest teams to ever be relegated from the Sorthern First Division. The fall of Septentrionien de Finistère perhaps isn't so surprising as they've struggled for a number of years now. Beningrad's relegation though will come as a huge shock to the club, and to make matters worse it means their big rivals, Oblast Rangers, are for the time being quite definitely the capital's number one club. Both clubs will be hoping for nothing less than the Second Division championship next season, it's quite possible neither will even be in the top three.

Second Division

A largely unremarkable season in the second tier, in which much of the excitement was offered by the three teams relegated from Division One last season making a right hash of returning to the top flight. Both Swinedon Town and Locomotiv Shingon lost more games than they won, both finishing mid table with a rather uninspiring points total of 49 points. Indeed the only relegated team who claimed any success were Rode Ster Amsterdam, and that came in the Cup. Of the promoted teams Dún Choin went straight back down, Bimlico survived and Revolutionaire did rather well, and could possibly have missed out on the Series B Champions Cup by a single point.

Third Division

Boing! Boing! That's the sound of the yo-yo that Reading Town have become (although thinking about it do yo-yo's really make a boing sound?). Having won the Third Division twice previously (in 2033 & 2035, see keeping the wiki article updated does help) and having been relegated last season they found themselves switching divisions quickly once more by winning their third league title, once again, in large part due to the goals of former Sorthern international Lewis Graham. Will they go up and stay up this time though? Probably not. Also going up this season is St. Patrick's, the side famous for selling all their good players to Port of Clotaire, in Candelaria And Marquez. Could more departures to the C&M be imminent on the back of their promotion? Quite possibly not with the success that system has bought PoC in recent seasons.

Fourth Division

Proving that the gap between third and fourth is ever closing the top two teams in the bottom division this year were relegated from the Third Division last year. So, it's not really closing all that slowly (two of last seasons promoted teams from Division Four were also relegated from Division Three this year). But it's getting there, and Carmala Sports, who were best of the rest and finished in third are sure to bring a new style of whipping boys to the Third Division next season.

Asinusford played like real donkeys for much of the season, and so it's no surprise that they finished bottom. Their reward was a play-off for survival in the Sorthern Football League against Cup quarter-finalists Curdley Vale, who got that far due to a favourable draw more than anything else. Nonetheless, Vale can take heart from this play-off, the closet one yet and they were really quite unlucky to lose both games by a single goal.

Curdley Vale 0-1 Asinusford City
Asinusford City 1-0 Curdley Vale
Aggregate: Curdley Vale 0-2 Asinusford City


Dreyher Island League

And as the stranglehold on the First Division ends, so it does in Dreyher. Like Corcaigh, Oast Orient were looking for their fifth straight title and prior to the start of the season they looked good to get it. After seven games the league was finely balanced with both teams on ten points. From game eight though, Huntscove took a hold of the league and from game nine onwards their lowest lead over Orient was six points. Neither side found any success in the Sorthern Cup, Oast losing in the first round 3-2 away to Leahton, and Huntscove losing 3-1 in the same round at home to Swinedon Town.

Sorthern Cup

Rode Ster Amsterdam become only the second side to win a second Sorthern Cup, and thus the joint most successful side in the Cup. Their triumph won't go down as one of the more difficult when the history books are written though. They played just one First Division side during their cup run (James Connolly SC in the semi-final), indeed it could be argued that Floriana deserved to win the final more based on the fact that they had to beat two First Division sides in 17th of October and Beningrad on their route to the final.

Kingdom of Dancougar College Football
Season capsules: Competition 2043/44, Classification 2044/45


Carnegie Tech's 2042 season hadn't been its best. At 5-8-1, they were good enough to capture second in the conference, and the margin of victory in their five wins was almost three goals. But if they had that kind of strength... why couldn't they turn more of those draws into wins? In other years, that might have been enough to creep into the tournament as an at-large, but there would be no breaks for a champion this time. Carnegie were out, and so too were any chances of defending their IUCC XIV crown, right?

Wrong. When the IUCC committee looked at the Dancougaran entrants, Friedmann College were thrown out and replaced by Tech, who were to have qualified as defending champions. Once they got to the tournament, they rediscovered their winning ways in the group stage, taking seven points from three matches to advance to the quarterfinals. Their compatriots at Amada were even stronger, winning all three. It was to be expected, said the analysts, from playing in the Big East, where the overall quality of play can be murderous even in down years. National champion Pine Bluffs, though, was badly exposed by this level of competition, as they failed to win a game.

In the knockout stages, Carnegie Tech were the first to fall, although Amada would go through to the final where they went up against Valanora's Hondo College. There would be no denying the quality of elven football on this day, as Hondo cruised to a 3-0 victory.

With entry deadlines for IUCC XVI coming before the 2044/45 season and tournament could be completed - fluid time is fun like that - the teams selected were based on their 2042/43 results. That meant that the next season would see teams play for a spot in the future seventeenth edition.

2043/44: Competition: Lunarossa set a new standard by putting four teams in the final Top 25 poll, the most of any conference, although critics immediately pointed out that it wasn't that impressive in a conference of fifteen teams as, say, the Big West's three out of nine the previous year. It was the usual suspect, University of Lunarossa, at the top, although joining them in the top five were some unfamiliar faces. The University of Juusenkitai were shock winners of the Big East; here was a team that had only won four games each of the last two seasons and bottomed out at 1-2-11 less than ten years ago. And they didn't just win the Big East, they obliterated it, finishing eleven pooints ahead of second-place Daikon Academy. Their achievement overshadowed the strong year by Barclay State, which had its first nine-win season in over twenty years.

Top 25
1 University of Juusenkitai 12-0-2, 25/12, 1st Big East
2 Shapiro State University 11-0-3, 31/15, 1st Shapiro CPL
3 University of Lunarossa 9-2-4, 38/23, 1st Lunarossa CPL
4 Barclay State College 9-3-2, 24/14, 1st Yuki CPL
5 Crane State College 9-5-2, 29/19, 1st South Central
6 Grandborough Tech 8-4-2, 26/18, 1st Shiba Valley
7 Baum State College 8-4-3, 24/15, 2nd Lunarossa CPL
8 Wenger College 9-3-4, 30/18, 1st Big North
9 Chastain College 9-4-3, 28/22, 1st Northern Plains
10 Thane College 8-2-4, 39/29, 2nd Shiba Valley
11 Waugaman City College 8-3-3, 27/18, 1st Red River
12 Morrison College 9-2-3, 29/11, 1st Metro East
13 Barynsk College 7-6-1, 27/18, 1st Igor Valley
14 University of Zorbados 8-6-2, 35/25, 1st Gilderome River
15 Branstein College 9-1-4, 30/23, 1st Helmut CPL
16 Friedmann College 8-4-4, 23/16, 1st Big West
17 Neville Island St College 8-4-3, 26/21, 3rd Lunarossa CPL
18 Regola University 8-2-4, 26/17, 2nd Red River
19 Koi Shores Technical College 8-3-3, 24/18, 1st Big Northeast
20 Okinomiya Academy 7-5-2, 15/ 8, 1st Kotaru CPL
21 Craig State College 8-3-4, 24/21, 4th Lunarossa CPL
22 Keats Island University 7-6-3, 32/22, 2nd Keats Island CPL
23 Fremont University 8-4-4, 27/23, 1st Keats Island CPL
24 Trafford Technical Institute 9-2-5, 32/21, 1st Sullivan CPL
25 Pollock College 8-2-4, 29/22, 1st Coastal Plains


Despite that, the Big East managed to get Daikon and third-place Jefferson into the tournament, where they had mixed results. Jefferson would go through after crushing Hinamizawa 5-1, but they would fall in the Conference Round. So, too, would Juusenkitai. Here, nobody was sure if it was the curse of the No. 1 ranking or just the fact that Juusenkitai, which had drastically overachieved during the regular season, were simply not up to the task against a solid perennial, Pollock. Lunarossa's four tournament teams were immediately reduced to two when Neville Island and Craig State crashed out in the first round. The most entertaining tie? That would have to be Angel Grove and Hazuki State. Nobody was sure what to expect of Angel Grove, but they were good enough for force Hazuki State to score five in the home leg to scrape through.

In the Conference Round, it was Juusenkitai bowing out as said before, and Barclay State were also exposed. They had the unfortunate luck to draw Lunarossa, setting up No. 3 and No. 4 in what was billed as the best fixture of the round. Not even close. Lunarossa win the road leg 4-0 and cruised at home 5-2 to produce a contender for the most lopsided result of the entire tournament - Shapiro State would have the last word on that. Onward, then, to the Sweet Sixteen, where Friedmann slapped around Pollock, apparently fuming about their IUCC omission and determined to prove a point by winning big in the tournament. There was another high-seed draw that pitted No. 2 Shapiro State and No. 3 Lunarossa, and this time it was much closer. A 3-1 home win for Shapiro State, though, was the difference.

Shapiro State established themselves as the favorites in the quarterfinals by romping over Donneley 8-0 on aggregate. Thane College also looked good, putting six past Shiba over two legs to win 6-1. But analysts were quick to point out that they hadn't played the strongest opposition remaining in the round, but that was the random draw for you. Fridmann kept going, though, 3-2 over Okinomiya. The other quarterfinal saw Branstein look the most impressive of the bunch, taking down Keats Island comfortably 5-2. They should have been the favorites, although Thane would beat them on penalties in the semifinals.

Friedmann were also into the semifinal and took on Shapiro State, and while they were undoubtedly playing to prove themselves, the only thing visible was the gap in talent between them and the opposition. Friedmann hosted the first leg and went down early, eventually losing 2-0. Shapiro State then won at home to set up a final with Thane, and they were expected to win their second tournament title. Thane, located in the northeast corner of Lunarossa but in the Shiba Valley league, had never made a final and were hoping to avoid getting blown out. They were pleasantly surprised when Shapiro State came out flat and they ran up a 2-0 lead en route to a 3-1 victory, giving Thane College its first college title.

Short stay for collegians at SBCC: There were more victories this time around, and Dancougar did put a second team into the group stage. But once again, nobody was able to advance beyond it. Nevertheless, the quality of some of the early round victories was excellent, so that while Dancougar's college teams are always in over their heads by entering the SBCC, it's comforting to know that the depth of talent in Dancougar has remained fairly high, all things considered.

Rizzi College were happy to learn that the SBCC did not overflow as Amada had predicted when they jumped to the IUCC instead. Of course, placed in the first preliminary round, they and Barynsk had the longest possible road ahead of them. Things started brightly enough, with Barynsk squeezing past Aterro FC while Rizzi obliterated Starblaydia's Tribe Urjali 8-2 on aggregate. The reborn Starblaydia football system still has a ways to go, it seems, to recapture its former luster. But were Rizzi for real? In the next round, they blasted Pasarga's Paulinthal FC 5-1. Analysts were quick to point out that against most established leagues, Rizzi would be in trouble. Witness Barysnk's second-round defeat to Taeshan's Loachen Yellow Jackets.

Rizzi finally lost their pace in the third round and were dumped by Deportivo Peralta 5-1. Shiratori, though, made a splash in their opener, downing Daehanjeiguk's Sanseo by a combined 4-1. That put them into the group stage, where they joined champions Pine Bluffs. Now, Pine Bluffs had crashed out of the IUCC rather spectacularly... could they regain some face here? The answer was an emphatic no, as they managed a single point from six matches. Shiratori did much better, two losses at home killed their chances. They finished with seven points, one behind Melin & Nader, and were out.

2044/45: Classification: Barclay State were quickly back to medriocrity following their escapades the previous year, although the University of Juusenkitai were only two points out of third in the Big East and could very well have made the tournament if it weren't for their six losses. The committee has long been loath to grant an at-large bid to teams with that many, so it was when Alameda Academy, 7-5-4 and third in the Keats Island CPL, were granted a berth whereas the team above them in the standings, 9-1-6 Mountain View, were not. Helmut and the Kishin Delta had very strong years, as six of their combined fifteen schools made the Top 25. Would it translate to tournament success? By comparison, Lunarossa saw only one team make the tournament and none finish in the media poll. It was the result of an incredibly competitive season which saw only seven points separate 2nd place from 14th.

So Mountain View were of course upset by the lack of a tournament berth, while Billick and Wightman also felt like they deserved a closer look. Again they bemoaned the apparent favoritism given to former champions like Carnegie Tech, who made the field despite an average 6-5-3 record. Wean State's berth out of the Metro East was also questioned. Yes, they only had two losses, but they came in the Metro East. But the field is the field, and the only optioned left to the snubs was to watch and hope for the "undeserveds" to get beaten in the first round.

Friedmann College 4-0 (#23) Schwartzer College
Wean State College 5-4 Shiba State University
Yuki Technical Institute 4-3 (#22) Port Royal University
(#18) Eastport State University 3-6 (#17) Chastain College
(#13) Baptista College 3-1 Carnegie Technical Institute
(#25) Branstein College 2-5 (#16) Amada University
Ouran College 3-6 Alameda Academy
Irie City College 4-2 Muddy Banks State College

Carnegie Tech duly bowed out, but Wean State did well to win 3-2 on the road in order to top Shiba State. If anything, it was looking like the Kishin Plains and Helmut CPL had been overrated. Schwartzer? Blanked by Friedmann. Branstein? Crushed by Amada. There were tears all over the twin cities of the east when both Port Royal and Eastport were beaten, so of those much-lauded "six out of fifteen", all of the at-large entries were bounced in the first round. Ouch.

(#6) Southport City College 7-3 (#21) Carling College

And then the champions of the Kishin Delta and Helmut CPL were finished off, too. Monagham State, a former world champion which had pounded the Shikibu CPL into submission, won both legs by 1-0 scores. Fujiwara State came closer to advancing but were ultimately beaten on penalties by Frickstowne. There was no shortage of entertaining football elsewhere, where the random draw produced No. 1 vs No. 7 (where, once again, the number one seed was out early), No. 8 vs No. 9 (Kinnikun rolled over Desugaia), and No. 3 vs No. 5 (Porter's 3-2 home win being all the difference). Wean State seemed to have taken all the pre-tournament criticism to heart and continued to be the most entertaining team of the tournament, beating Mifflin 6-5 after surviving a scare on the road leg.

(#6) Southport City College 3-1 (#2) Monagham State College
Wean State College 6-1 Foster College
Frickstowne College 3-3 Shapiro State University

Monagham State bowed out, but Wean State were running rampant, scoring three goals in both legs against Foster. And with the draw conspiring to eliminate some of the better teams, there was real talk of them going the distance. Of course, some teams just played dreadful football, like Porter against Irie City. Chastain and Kotetsu Tech produced the most entertaining tie of the round, with both road teams winning their matches. Chastain's 4-3 victory was offset by a 3-2 result that forced penalties, and in the shootout, who else but Chastain were going to win it?

(#24) Hazuki State University 5-4 Irie City College
(#6) Southport City College 5-3 Wean State College
(#17) Chastain College 7-2 (#20) Redwood City College
Frickstowne College 2-4 (#13) Baptista College

Wean State were finally undone by Southport, but at least they went down fighting, to the tune of 5-3. Southport's 3-1 home win was the difference, and although they weren't able to deliver a win for their own fans, Wean State were applauded off the pitch at the end. Chastain were now looking like the favorites after hammering Redwood City by scores of 4-1 and 3-1. But a familiar name was also present in the bracket... Hazuki State. Although they weren't the offensive juggernaut they were in previous seasons, they were playing solid football and were getting goals at crucial junctures rather than folding.

(#6) Southport City College 6-3 (#17) Chastain College
(#13) Baptista College 2-3 (#24) Hazuki State University

As soon as Chastain were pegged as favorites, the floor fell out from underneath them, and Southport rolled with a pair of three-goal performances to advance to the final. It would be their second appearance; the first was a 1-0 victory over Kishin Academy nine years previous. Their opponents were Hazuki State, who once again played smart football. A 2-0 home victory overcame a first-leg deficit and they were into their third final. They'd lost the previous two; would this be the same?

GRAND FINAL
(#6) Southport City College 3-4 (#24) Hazuki State University

Nobody could ever fathom why Hazuki State had never won a title. Statistically, they were one of Dancougar's elite programs. A third of their seasons had resulted in at least ten regular season wins. They had produced some of the most feared striking talent in the country. And for all that, they had never won the big one. They would always choke in the tournament, no matter how far they got. The monkey was gone. Southport City could not hold a 2-0 lead and Hazuki State used a three-goal second half to earn their first long-awaited tournament crown.

Dancougar announces international qualification: The Kingdom of Dancougar nominates four college teams for the SBCC and three for the IUCC. Do to a timewarp, teams for the upcoming IUCC XVI have already been chosen, so these are the tentative entrants for IUCC XVII.

IUCC1: #24 Hazuki State University (national champion)
IUCC2: #13 Baptista College (College Alliance selection)
IUCC3: Wean State College (College Alliance selection)

SBCC1: #24 Hazuki State University (national champion)
SBCC2: #6 Southport City College (national runner-up)
SBCC3: #1 Katya City College (regular season #1)
SBCC4: #17 Chastain College (fan voting)

Unlike Amada before them, Chastain decided to take a chance on the size of the SBCC field and kept the fourth slot that they earned in fan voting. There were some rumors that Katya City might actually vacate their third slot and thus bump Chastain up, but nothing came of it. The College Alliance was left to fill in the IUCC field, and they went with Baptista and Wean State for their admirable runs through the tournament.

And another SuperLiga winds down with the championship wrapped up long before the final day. But what’s this? That’s not Ciudad sitting pretty at the top.

José Felipe Cassumba Domingos’ playing career might not quite have lived up to his early billing as Canderlaria And Marquez’s first truly world class player but as a coach he’s carving out a nice little career for himself at the helm of Sporting San Marquez after leading the Larissan club to their first title in six years, ending three years of Ciudad domination in the process. Add that to him leading Sporting into the first two global cup campaigns in their history as while as masterminding a Copa Sargossa win in his first season and JCD can certainly allow himself to feel just a little smug. A rock solid defence that conceded just 26 goals in 38 games was the foundation on which the side was built. Keeper Aaron Turner is surely pushing for international recognition with C&M while Sargossan international centreback Néstor González’s form earned him a move to el Din Marbles in the CMSC.

Of the other contenders El Nacional had to content themselves with yet another runner-up spot in what was Rob Kietecs’ last season in charge. He’s stepping down to concentrate on his work with the national side. The veteran Nethertopian has narrowly missed out on the title in each of his three seasons at the helm but his reign will be remembered fondly by the Goza faithful. He did manage to sign off with some silverware after his side overcame Porto Alegro Azul on penalties in the Copa Sargossa final.

Perennial champions Ciudad Soluca started the season poorly with a shock defeat against Dunas Del Sol in the Super Cup and it never really picked up after that. They may have won their last four games but Félix Barreto’s side still finished a massive 17 points off the pace. And a 6 – 0 hammering by arch-rivals El Nacional in the Copa Sargossa quarter final just rubbed salt into the wounds. A mixture of global cup commitments and international call-ups, a new found bugbear of SuperLiga managers, was blamed for the poor showing.

A final day home win over Rubio Bayamo meant Dínamo Maturín held onto fourth spot to qualify for the Globe Cup. Deportivo Cordova and Estrella Torreón narrowly missed out after falling away in the closing stages. Porto Alegro Azul, after losing out with practically the final kick of last season, will grace the Globe Cup next season thanks to their runner’s up finish in the Copa.

At the other end of the table Jaguarés never recovered from the loss of Marcos García Fernández to Sporting Kildare of Dancougar and quietly dropped down into the Segunda Liga. Cartago Rojo were also dead and buried long before the final round of matches. And failure to win any of their last six games condemned Moruga S.C. to the drop alongside them. They will be replaced by Santos, Machala Del Norte and Atlético Ensenada.

The Global Cups
There was disappointment for the Archipelago in the TakilQuip Champions Cup as both Ciudad Soluca and El Nacional exited in just the Second Preliminary Round. After a 2 – 2 draw in Pasarga against Galactica Ciudad looked well placed to advance against their fellow Rushmoris but a 1 – 0 defeat in Soluca put paid to that. Even worse was suffered by El Nacional who beat Logrian side Broome City 3 – 0 in Goza only to lose by the same scoreline in the away leg. A single extra time goal sent Rob Kietecs’ side out 4 – 3 on aggregate.

There was early delight in the Globe Cup Selective Stage as Dunas Del Sol overcame Quodites Highmark City Blues 2 – 1 on aggregate. But they fell by the same score in the next stage to the Houghton Kestrels of West Zirconia. The Prelimenary Stage was as far as Dínamo Maturín went too, turned over 2 – 0 by Newmanistani side Centralia. There was better news for El Nacional who beat Qutaris Lockstow United to go into the qualifying stage. Ciudad’s miserable campaign ended in Soluca on penalties against Arcrés Millos of Aguazul.

So we’re only at the qualifying stage of the Globe Cup and only two SuperLiga sides have made it through. And both faced tough opposition from Liventia. Folenisa did for Sporting San Marquez 4 – 3 on aggregate but El Nacional, thanks to a fantastic 4 – 1 away win, overcame Orean United to qualify for the group stages for the second season running. They would end up third in Group C behind Cafundéu giants Ranco Toco and Bayern Phoenix of Taeshan.

Not the most inspiring of seasons for the SuperLiga's representatives but it did help the league up two places to 28th in the global rankings.

Season Capsules: 2043/44 Apertura, 2044/45 Clausura


Yuki City Athletic's run into the semifinals in the 2041/42 Globe Cup wasn't the only success story for the D-League. The league was once again responsible for furnishing an experimental team for a non-WCC tournament, as the Oxen Cup returned after a short break. As with the Empire Charity Cup before it, the Oxen Cup team was constructed by taking one young player from each of the league's 20 teams. This meant it wasn't the strongest all-star team on offer, but it was still good enough to take the title. The new Qazian Memorial Stadium was opened with aplomb and Dancougar won the title to put another feather in the league's cap.

Keystone Cup

Dancougar hosted the second preseason Keystone Cup tournament between it and the Newmanistan Premier League. The selection criteria seemed bent towards D-League teams which had been down during the 2042/43 Clausura, with Eastport, Stoneridge, and Kalinsk each getting picked, while a power was selected in Yuki City Athletic. There seemed to be some foresight involved, as each of the "down" teams would rise up by the following Clausura.

Yuki City Athletic 0-0 Olympia (0-0 AET) (2-1 PK)
Eastport United 0-2 Pocono City
Loudon 2-1 Dynamo Kalinsk
Tundra Falls 0-0 Stoneridge United (0-0 AET) (2-3 PK)

It was a close call in Yuki City and Stoneridge, where both D-League teams advanced on penalty kicks after scoreless draws. Eastport and Dynamo were tackled in normal time as Artur Komarov's slide continued. Since winning World Cup 46 with the Wings, the Dynamo 'keeper hasn't been himself.

Yuki City Athletic 2-1 Pocono City
Loudon 0-2 Stoneridge United

But in the semifinals, it was better from the host nation, with Pocono City and Loudon both bowing out to create an all-Dancougar final.

Yuki City Athletic 2-0 Stoneridge United

Hardware is hardware, and if Yuki City Athletic never win the league again, at least they'll have this.

2043/44: Apertura

While the D-League will never claim to run the world's largest transfer market, the amount of talent available after the Di Bradini and Oxen Cups proved tempting to clubs who were no longer constrained by the salary cap. It was the busiest summer on record, with thirteen players brought in from overseas and three shipped out. Sargossa, which had a surprisingly deep run at the Di Bradini Cup, were raided for five players, while four Candelarians were brought in, the first time that any clubs were brash enough to reach into the CMSC.

Dwayne Landro was gone after a long career with Shuukyuu Kishin and King's Eleven, but King's Eleven were more worried about shoring up their defense than replacing their midfield star. Only Teknika had ceded more goals the previous year, so they grabbed a pair of defenders, Sargossa's Jorge Alberto Carmona and Queer Poco's Rudolpho. Sporting Kildare were out to show that their title in 2041/42 hadn't been a fluke, and they brought in a pair of Sargossans, Carlos Candela and Marcos Garcia Fernandez, to provide more balance.

It's hard to get a feeling for how the season will turn out until two or three months have passed, but as it turned out, the top of the table after week six was remarkably telling. Kildare were indeed going to hang in there and challenge for another title. They still hadn't found a quality forward to pair up with Martin Lancaster, but Don Kline was productive as ever at 31, and the addition of Sargossan Fernandez was providing them with that extra spark. And no one was about to discount the team right behind them, Shuuukyuu Kishin, who had found the answer to Karen Stadler's retirement with the arrival of Yoshiaki Soma, who scored five goals in the team's first six matches. He'd hardly gotten his feet wet, but his combination with Matthew Turner was already looking scary.

But who would challenge their hegemony? Entering October, Eastport and Chuuoushi had fought their way into the picture, while Port Royal were not far behind. Seeing Chuuoushi near the top put a smile on the faces of their fans, for the team was not its usual high-flying self. Josef Rousch was all that was left of their original midfield trifecta, although Aiko Yoshida was coming along and defenders Rokuro Katayama and Justinas Volrat were helping the team play more responsibly. The results were a 6-2-3 record and fourth in the table. Five straight losses would end the good feelings eminating from Hazuki, and fans remembered that, if nothing else, there was college football if things got any worse.

At the halfway point, Kishin and Kildare were still slugging it out at the top of the table with the league's number two and number one offense, respectively. "Soma to Turner!" was the call in the capital, while out in relative boonies of Kirk County, Kildare fans reveled in the balanced attack that even saw defenders like Zachary Ledain find the net with some regularity. Then again, perhaps it was the forward-thinking of the Kildare defense that had them giving up the second-most goals in the league; only last-place Super Dimension had them beat. If Kildare could come up with more responsible defense, they'd be downright unstoppable. They did improve a bit during a five game unbeaten streak which saw them jump into first.

Heading into March, Kildare were still leading, and Kishin were six points behind in third. In between them was Grandborough, who were starting to get more production from midfielder James Idiotsman, who was transitioned into a starter as the season progressed. New transfer Gala struck up a partnership with Donny Saulsbery although they were winning thanks to their defense, a veteran unit led by Naoto Ogura. They continued to hang around, while Stoneridge were also pushing hard for second. Kildare were starting to build a cushion, but they were surviving the retirement of Alexei Voronzoff thanks to Dos Santos and the development of striker Michael Chrysler, who had eleven goals to his credit.

With six games left, Kildare led Kishin by five points, and from there, five points separated second-place Kishin from sixth-place Yuki City Athletic. The lead was ten points by the end of April. Kildare cruised over Athletic 3-0 away while Kishin fell 3-2 to bottom-third Raymaley. Grandborough were holding their position tied with Kishin at 60 points by defeating Lakeport 2-1. By now, coach Jeremy McAllister must have believed in the seventh-place curse. No team had managed to finish seventh as frequently as Lakeport, and not even a foreign goalkeeper in Kiendar seemed to be the missing piece they needed.

That 3-0 victory sealed the title for Kildare, as that ten-point lead was where they stood with only three games remaining. They lifted the trophy at home the next week before a 1-1 draw with Port Vigilence, and from there, the battle was on for second. Kishin would claim that honor by winning their final three matches, while Grandborough would hold on for third.

Times were tough in Eastport, where the former champions had fallen into the middle third after a draw-laden season saw them leave too many points on the table. The team had the league's third-best offense, so that wasn't the problem... it a leaky defense gave up too many late goals despite adding youth in Ladis Berk to inherit the back line still led by Doug Edrington.

International Roundup

Yet another disappointing drop out of the TakilQuip Champions' Cup, as all D-League entries completely... wait, hold everything. A team escaped from the group stage? For the first time since 2031? Believe it!

Leave it to Yuki City Athletic to pull off something like this, as the team can't seem to win a league title but has proudly gone deeper than any D-League team in any international tournament. And this time, it was the TQCC Round of 16. That's nothing to write home about in the big leagues, but then again, Dancougar doesn't quite have one of those, now does it? Athletic were victorious in Group G with eleven points and a commanding +9 goal difference. Sure, they lost to Green Island in the next round, but just getting there was a marked improvement over the previous years, so kudos to them.

As for Kildare and Kishin? Well... better luck next time. Kildare crashed out in the third round to CF Mont-Pluie. Kishin fared better, topping the Neurologists 3-0 in their first tie. They went up against West Zirconia's Etruria in the fourth round with the group stage just two legs away. And they collapsed. A 2-0 loss at home brought out the boo-birds, and a 2-0 loss away sent them down to the Globe Cup.

In the Globe Cup, Lakeport fought Football Nordiqueville to a 2-2 aggregate draw and lost on penalties, so an early exit for them. Port Royal did far better, winning their way into the qualifying stage where Ad'ihan's Grand Arsenal finally proved too strong. But FC Koltecia, Ashdom City, and Wiechester United were all left in their wake, leading some fans to wonder if they might have done better if they hadn't started way back in the selective stage.

Three teams in the group stage, then, and Shuukyuu Kishin, for all their might, could not compete in their group. They were the only team to finish with a negative goal difference and finished with a measly four points. Eastport United were also beaten, although they fared better in their group, finishing third behind Mar Sara and Mont-Pluie. But Kildare finished atop their group with twelve points, tied with the San Diego Iguanas.

Onto the knockout stage for Kildare, who joined Athletic as the only team playing international football in the early spring. Unlike Athletic, they would win their first tie. Mountbatten Junction of Ad'ihan won the first leg at home 2-1, but Kildare were confident with an away goal in the bag. Two goals from Don Kline in the home leg sparked a 3-0 win and they were through to the final sixteen where they would meet Cafundeu's Ranca Toco, and finally they were asking too much. Ranca won 2-0 at home and then held Kildare to a draw in Kirk County for a 3-1 aggregate win.

2044/45 Clausura

Note: Because the Dancougar calendar is twisted, this season takes place concurrently with World Cup 47 qualifying, which has not concluded yet.

With no major tournaments over the summer, the transfer market was thin as usual. There are also no big-name retirements to speak of, meaning that teams coming into the fall would look like they had during the previous year modulo the draft and any other farm systme moves to address issues. There were still a few moves, though. Lakeport continued to look for their missing piece by grabbing Brian Lobato from Port Vigilence, while Kildare dumped the aging Mitchell Wolford who was gleefully snapped up by King's Eleven. And while Eastport fully expected to bounce back from a bad season, they'd have to do it without Stanley Rocco, who jumped onboard with cross-bay rivals Port Royal. It would turn out to be the wrong move.

Notable Internal Transfers
D Brian Lobato: Port Vigilence FC -> Sporting Lakeport
D Yoriyuki Shiomiya: Shuukyuu Kishin -> Grandborough FC
D Mitchell Wolford: Sporting Kildare -> King's Eleven Yuki City
M Stanley Rocco (NEW): Eastport United -> Port Royal FC
M Masayuki Taketomo: Stoneridge United -> Teknika Schlieffen
F Saburo Nishino: Coraopolis FC -> Shuukyuu Kishin

Two months into the season, it liked like Lakeport were on the right path. Sixteen points from eight games had them in second place, while Kishin and Kildare were predictably right behind. The real surprise was the torrid pace with which Mizuno started the regular season. Six wins and two losses had them atop the table, and they weren't all garbage wins, either. Port Royal and Kishin were among the victims, and their 4-3 away win against Dynamo Kalinsk in week eight was one of the better games in the early going. The next week, Lakeport assumed the lead with a 2-1 road win at Eastport, who were struggling in 13th. Silexheran import Gopher Sporaskid was starting to see more time off the bench since Lillian DaCosta was having a down year.

Mizuno's pace continued into December, where a 3-1 away to Takano saw them in third place on 25 points, while Lakeport and Kishin forged ahead. That was to be the high point of their season, though, as the overachievers faltered through the month only to rebound by the halfway point, sitting fourth with Stoneridge and Eastport. Dynamo Kalinsk were looking good, rebounding from 11th the previous year to come in at 3rd. Forward Ivan Marchak led the way with eight goals, while the midfield was handed off to Paul Clifton and Francisco Lillo. It was ironic that a team which had prided itself on its ability to build through the draft was now having a tougher time finding young talent due to lower draft positions, and they'd become buyers in the international market to try and keep a winning football team in the Igor Valley.

The top three maintained their positions throughout the next month, and by the beginning of Februrary, Kishin were five points ahead of Kalinsk while Lakeport slipped to third. Kildare were still in the hunt in fourth, but Kishin were flying ahead despite constantly losing Turner to international duty. Soma wasn't getting much first team action, though, and the rest of the team's depth became apparent. Yasuo Ishihara and Louis Ransberger were solid in the midfield, and forward Saburo Nishino was an excellent deputy up front. The top of the table remained static as they entered March, and not even an embarassing 5-1 loss at Grandborough seemed to dampen Kishin's mood. But in Week 32, a 1-0 loss to Chuuoushi, coupled with Lakeport's 4-1 romp over Teknika, cut the gap to three.

Two weeks later, Kishin got some help against Kalinsk and Lakeport... from them! Kalinsk's 1-0 road win pulled them into a tie for second for J-Mac's boys, but that meant that Kishin pulled six points clear by rolling 5-0 over Aiken. That was the end of it. Kishin stretched the lead to nine points with a Week 36 victory over cross-town rivals Athletic and that sealed the trophy. Kalinsk and Lakeport were neck and neck in the battle for second, with Kalinsk would take on goal difference.

The feel-good story of the year had to be Teknika Schlieffen's massive jump in the table from last to ninth, and it was even more impressive when one considered how often star midfielder John Schiermeier was away on national team duty. It was Lincoln McFarland who blossomed in his absense, and they also got good production from draft pick Kenny Banister, who starred in Di Bradini Cup 10.

International Qualifiers

For the first time in a long time, there'd be no international football in the Kishin delta after Eastport's poor Apertura was matched by Port Royal's Clausura. That hurt their two-year point totals, but the clubs were out of reasons for complain. It seemed like the increased spending had increased competition at the top, given the motion from season to season. Kishin had played the most consistently and were easily able to claim Dancougar's automatic group stage entry.

CMSC XXXV Preview

If the Cafundelense First Division is the mother of modern domestic football, then the Candelaria And Marquez Soccer Championship is the flirty little sister. A relative neophyte in international terms, a combination of astute financing and sheer doggedness has seen the CMSC somehow contrive to become the second-best club league in the whole bleedin’ multiverse, if them ranky thingies are to be believed. And who among us would argue with that kind of heavy-duty maths, eh?

Last season was one of mixed fortunes for Candelaria, with the league title going to Green Island – a side not from Candelaria or Marquez at all, would you Adam and Eve it, tch? – and Marquez-Onwere settling for second, but Albrecht FC were named Champions’ Cup champions for the second time in two seasons (two of our seasons, anyway… it’s a tad complicated, don’t fret about it), and Caires City took the Globe Cup under somewhat controversial circumstances and remain ranked a narrow second in the formal international coefficients.

Despite a (fairly) rigid quota system and its curious domestic taboos and politics, the CMSC is still one of the most international leagues in the multiverse, with well over fifty nations represented in the top-flight at some point or another and a diverse range of countries – from global powerhouses like Starblaydia and Valanora to tenderfoots Sargossa and Toyur – making up the squads of the eighteen CMSC1 teams. A significant chunk of the foreign contingent is in fact supplied by NAPPC and Tenderville United – two clubs who are about as Candelariasian as pixies and in actuality hail from the nearby islands of Nethertopia, an invitation which, on reflection, was not as much as a cunning plan as it first appeared. Not now the latter’s actually doing well

*shudders*

Any road up, this season will be slightly different than most – primarily in way of fact that it’s starting a wee bit later, with the islands gripped by an epidemic of hay fever, gastroenteritis, acute impetigo, athletes foot, mouth ulcers, earache, heartburn, the teething of wisdom teeth and other minor ailments that we really shouldn’t be making such a fuss about but there you go. There’ll be no daily reports during the Apertura, with normal service resuming following a nice big update at the half-way stage. Arright? Deal with it, bitches.

Onward!

Players marked with a * are foreigners born in Rushmore or otherwise Rushmori citizens, and exempt from the foreigner quota. Nethertopian players moving to and between Nethertopian clubs are excluded from the above list, for sanity’s sake.

Players marked with a ** are those who were formally registered as members of C&M clubs’ youth academies, and thus counting as ‘home-grown’.


Green Island: Stockley – Paterson, Tinuviel**, Dorack, RaviranjanKures – Saunderson, va Drake (c), Young, DurosaAnwamane**
Nickname(s): GIZ
Stadium: Marlow Park [cap. 40,144], Zapata, Green Island
Home Kit: All black, baby. With, sort of, green bits.
Ownership: C&M: Local business consortium with funding from the Raynor family of Valanora
Coach: Daft Massimo
Team Style: Offensive enough to positively demand a stern letter to Points of View; they knock it about all over the place and wait for a defensive slip or moment of sublime skill
Background: Hailing not from Candelaria or Marquez at all, the GIZ were thought of as minor islanders with a bunch of backward supporters, until the international era opened with the signing of Roger Zetaback and the beginning of a Vanorian revolution. Now seen as one of the most naturally gifted and goal-minded teams in the league, if not automatically the prettiest, they finally delivered Espy va Drake a title last term and should be on the hunt for domestic and international glory once more
Transfer Market: Bringing in Ogus Kures, on the last year of his contract at Albrecht FC, is a key move at the base of the midfield to supplement or supplant the aging Ely, while counter-attacking full-back Campbell Raviranjan is picked up from MN Smith.
Star Names: The aforementioned va Drake has been considered the CMSC’s marquee player for a goodly while now, but the job done by his countryfolk Durosa out wide and Dorack at the back cannot be underestimated, while Anwamanë adorns many a bedroom wall – and, with the emergence of local girl Jhanna Young, the GIZ are increasingly the grubby raincoat brigade’s team of choice
Options: On the left, centre and right of the midfield, aggressive Nethie Michel Mulder and home-grown distributor Tom Osborne respectively will get games while Jameson Aldren may well steal Young’s Next Big Thing tag. The battle between the sticks may be key however, with Stockley fighting off the veteran title-winner Darren Bryson and youngster Kris Dean.
The Fans Expect: While their home island remains in an increasingly unhappy state, a proper bid for Champions’ Cup glory would help to display their plight to a wider international public. Please.
The Pundits Expect: That bids on all fronts could be a challenge too far for that defense, but Durosa and va Drake could yet deliver a long awaited TQCC semi-final.

Marquez-Onwere: S’toris** – Villasenior, O’Brien (c), Davies, Cotuba – Pappas, Joaio*, Souto Maior, Cincoski, Oliveira Tavares – Seez
Nickname(s): MarquezOW, the Naranja
Stadium: La Escalera Naranja [cap. 38,080], Onwere, Marquez
Home Kit: Two shades of orange, if such a thing is possible
Ownership: Nethertopia: Ricardo Wendell, the multi-millionheir
Coach: Christopher Harvey
Team Style: A strikingly similar effort to the above, albeit with flying wingers pulling back for a rather stockier front line
Background: A club created for the inaugural CMSC season and long-time overachievers as a result, MarquezOW’s principal links were to the youthful make-up of their university city and the surrounding Hispanic countryside – prior to the involvement of Sam Wendell, whose cash helped transform the club once more before his untimely death last term. Harvey’s team failed to deliver him a posthumous title by the narrowest of margins, but they remain extremely strong in all departments.
Transfer Market: Top scorer Augustine Dennin allowed his contract to run down and Daniel Dos Santos’ move to Dancougar seemed rather unnecessary given the riches available to Harvey – and forcing him to shuffle his pack somewhat, bringing in midfield dynamo Katie Cincoski to partner the powerhouse Joãio, and improving the backline yet further with Starblaydi international Villasenior.
Star Names: Souto Maior emerged as a true talent last year and will continue to feel the pressure to score, but the naranja can also claim a superb home-grown (kinda) ‘keeper, two skipping wingers that on their day can tie anyone up in knots, and the Big Blues central defensive pairing.
Options: Besides the big journeymen up front, Bas Smit and Wayne Sanchez, Harvey can only really call on youngsters in a deliberately thinner squad than last season – but the likes of creative midfielder Wildash Gatti and fullback Alejandro Valdez could already be ready for the big time themselves.
The Fans Expect: While an unassuming lot in general, they rightfully see themselves as title favourites and contenders for overseas honours.
The Pundits Expect: That a team perhaps just about shading it as the division’s strongest overall have every chance of ending an eight-season wait, even if they still look sub-par on a global level.

Albrecht Turkish: Paxson** – Poole, Estevez, Tashkir – Cohen (c), Werner, Yeoman, Dirie – Calabrese*, Bakker**, Innisvale
Nickname(s): Turkish, Millermen, Kinsmen, A.Turks
Stadium: Solidarity Stadium [cap. 66,200], Hoxton, Albrecht, Candelaria
Home Kit: Skinny red and white stripes with white shorts
Ownership: Valanora: Viela Inc., the Vyintanese electronics firm
Coach: Fabio Mannasuch
Team Style: God knows… The 3-4-3 will inevitably make them yet another attack-minded outfit, with everyone moving about a lot in a not-at-all headless-chicken stylee
Background: The second-biggest club in the country by general consensus, the capital’s more suburban side are always there or thereabouts but last term saw long-time manager Asdrubal Espinoza depart for the Pocoan international job, the club itself fall into the slender fingers of some unfathomable foreigners, and their league form collapse. Mannasuch is a big name but a justly large reputation, but a mixture of aging stars and untested youngsters sees eyebrows raised at their chances, while the manager’s pre-season team selections have been nothing if not…odd.
Transfer Market: Big grumpy Kjarlik Tashkir (a Yaforite… moving to a club apart from you-know these days? Surely some mistake…?) will sure up the left of the back three, for some reason, with the other notable new arrivals being up front – and, most importantly, that includes the truly awesomely named Ausilio Calabrese. We’ve got ‘im! We’ve got the big ol’ brassica! In your face, Sargossa! Nyaah! Meanwhile, in a shameless foreshadowing of the plot for World Cup 56, teen striker Samson Patris and Bavent has gone on loan to Stein-los Turkish.
Star Names: Pushing well into their thirties now, Niv Cohen and Greg Innisvale remain CMSC talents par excellence, while Turkish will be hoping that this is the season where Hoxton local Daniel Bakker emerges as a world-class goalscorer. Much relies on the talent of Werner, following a disappointing XXXIV, to command the centre of the park.
Options: This, really, is what it’s all about – with notable names including WC46 C&M internationals God’s Power Adekunde at left-back and Darren Robinson galloping through the centre apparently left out in favour of flighty box-to-box star John Yeoman and no less unpredictable midfield lefty Mo Dirie – with Mannasuch either showing his genius, or being well ready to be ritually slaughtered and cloned, or whatever it is they do over there.
The Fans Expect: Probably not the title on Mannasuch’s first go, so finishing ahead of the other lot and putting in a good showing at the TQCC would do them. Albrecht FC’ve won it twice since they last did, after all.
The Pundits Expect: A complete division among those in the know, with Turkish predicted to romp to the title in some quarters and face a relegation nightmare in others. Mannasuch will certainly need to win over the skeptics quickly.

The Island Chronicle


El Nacional Spread The Net

It’s that time of year when transfer news dominates the sports dailies but this season it’s not players that are causing the most speculation, it’s a managerial vacancy. El Nacional, the Archipelago’s largest and most popular club, are in the market for a new manager and club president Diego Ruano has confirmed that they won’t be confining their search to within Sargossan borders.

“Certainly we’re not ruling out domestic candidates but given are recent success both domestically and in the Globe Cup was under a foreign coach it would be ridiculous not to consider appointing someone else from overseas.”

That coach was of course veteran Nethertopian Rob Kietecs who, in three years at the helm, led the club to the runners-up spot in the SuperLiga three times and claimed a Copa Sargossa win. He also masterminded El Nacional’s two global cup campaigns that led to appearances in the group stages of the Globe Cup in the past two seasons making the Goza giants comfortable the most successful Sargossan club internationally. Now he has left to coach the Sargossa national side Ruano is looking for someone to continue the trend. Both Dínamo Maturín’s José Marín and Mercadel’s Juan Manuel Del Rios have been linked with the position but the club have insisted that they won’t be rushing into a decision. So there’s plenty of time for any overseas candidates who might fancy the challenge to get their CVs in.

Alright, so I just tried to post all my domestic leagues and I get this message:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1966080 bytes) in /home/nation/phpBB3/includes/utf/data/utf_compatibility_decomp.php on line 2

So, I dunno, it didn't seem like it any bigger then the other newswire posts..... in order not to miss another deadline, here are our TQCC/GC/SBCC teams and my write up of just the Premier League, and not the lower leagues.
TQCC: Springfield (league champion); Tundra Falls.
Globe: Olympia, Pocono City, Centralia, South Charlotte (if I don't get this many delete from back end)
SBCC: Fairfield City, West Penthoria, Hampton, Eastport (if I don't get this many delete from back end)

The Tundra Falls Proving Grounds would like to place a bid for the TQCC; Pocono City Stadium for the Globe Cup; and Eastport Stadium for the SBCC.


Incoming:
Amber Pena (Arroza) —> South Charlotte
Stephen Barra (Arroza) —> Putnam Lake
Harroya Lightning (Bears Armed) —> Pocono City
Brianna Pierson (Cassadaigua) —> North Charlotte
Tara Demarco (Cassadaigua) —> South Tier
Luis Cussen (Dancougar) —> Olympia
Paul Barclay (Dancougar) —> Olympia
Justin Sellick (Dancougar) —> Putnam Lake
Jacinta Jacob (Jeruselem) —> Southport
Gene Sharman (Qazox) —> Centralia
Reginald Gillispie (Qazox) —> Tundra Falls
Angel Kenworthy (Qazox) —> Springfield
Manuel Panadero (Sargossa) —> Dover City
Justinas Kaiser (Somewhereistonia) —> Olympia
Jeb Sharong (Starblaydia) —> Putnam Lake
Natalie Jensen (Starblaydia) —> Tundra Falls
Oravac Fabio (Uiri) —> Pittstown

Preview: Fans in Tundra Falls have a good feeling about this season. Their roster remains young and talented, with a strong defensive focus. Mariner fans believe this is the best team that they have ever had in the Premier League format. Springfield’s explosive offense got even more dangerous with the high priced addition of Angel Kenworthy from Qazox. Alongside Brett Carlson and Stacie Kerrigan, the Thoroughbreds will score a ton, and they still veteran keeper Lane McCarville as well as aggressive defender Eric Fraser making them a top candidate. Defending champion Loudon, as well as Centralia have experienced very little turnover. Pocono City remains active in their rebuilding, signing the first ever non-human to play in the NPL. Harroya Lightning of Bears Armed expected to draw a lot of media attention to see how she adapts to playing with humans, instead of ursines. Kevin Lewis has done a great job with the Capitals rebuilding (though it always helps to have money doesn’t it?). Olympia has improved their defense even more, and their fans also believe this could be their year. As is the case with Tundra Falls, fans of the Gladiators believe this is the best roster they have ever had in this format. Southport should still be strong, though they still are a bit young, so maybe not yet ready for a title quite yet. Dover City finally has their much needed goalkeeper, signing Brian Carver after he exercised the relegation clause in his contract to leave Hampton. Putnam Lake has had a high spending period as well, landing Starblaydi midfielder Jeb Sharong as the featured addition to go with a promising group of forwards led by veteran Calvin Lane and an underrated Larry Rokowski, but like Southport, they still look to need a few pieces to make a title run. South Charlotte feels that even they can contend, with their very balanced roster. South Tier’s addition of Cassadaigua’s Tara Demarco was the first ever international player purchased by the Seagulls. All in all, we expect things to be competitive once again at the top of the table. If we have any sleepers, be on the look out for Pittstown and Rushville. The promoted teams are Bradford Town, making their first appearance; Portsmouth, a frequent up and down team; and Dover Town, who no longer will be used as Dover City’s “minor league affiliate”.

With all of this high spending on transfers, there have been some calls for the NPL to establish a salary cap. Mid market teams such as South Tier, Brighton, and both North and South Charlotte have called for the measure as they have been rather annoyed with how quickly Pocono City was able to rebuild just by throwing the endless supply of Empire Motors money at people, and they correctly point out that Loudon did the same exact thing about eight years ago. Springfield’s purchase of Angel Kenworthy also irritated these teams who don’t have the resources that the big teams have. Springfield responds by reminding them that they are a mid-market themselves, just one with an owner who chooses to put the money into the team instead of his wallet or the pockets of his corporate executives. Right now nothing is expected as this is still a minority voice, but if some more mid-market teams follow suit, this could be worth watching in a year or two.

At halfway: The offense of the Thoroughbreds sets the pace, as they draw out to a seven point lead at halfway with 52 total points. In those games, they are average just over two goals per game. Carlson-Kerrigan-Kenworthy is proving very dangerous, and the team is getting good enough defense and goalkeeping. It’s a pretty nice cushion, but they can’t feel too comfortable, because just a brief slump would put them back in a tight back. Tundra Falls is in second and Olympia third, those two teams separated by just a point, and interestingly the GF and the GA of these two teams are identical. Southport, Loudon, and Putnam Lake are all within three points of Olympia and Pocono City and Dover City are in the mix as well. One of the stories in the first half has been that the defensive juggernaut Centralia Cougars are simply not near the top of the table, they are tenth, but sixteen points behind Springfield right now, and rumors are swirling that James Martin may lose his job over it and his assistant, Casey Berber would take over. If that happened, Casey would become the first foreign head coach (Dancougar) of an NPL team. The teams we mentioned as possible sleepers, Pittstown and Rushville don’t look as though they will be that. At the bottom, newcomers Bradford Town and Dover Town are having a tough go of it, as is Hastings. Those teams are solidly in the bottom three, but if one of them plays well enough in the second half, there’s a pack of seven of them that could possibly in trouble including NPL mainstays Daytopia and Stroudsbourg.

The Finish: At one point, Springfield pulled away to as much as a fourteen point lead in the second half. They lost a few games late, so that coupled with Tundra Falls playing well down the stretch made the final table look closer at the top then it really was all year. Coached by former World Cup player Nate Stratton, the Thoroughbreds won their games by scoring a bunch of goals, record one 9-0 victory along the way (over last place Hastings). Tundra Falls and Olympia had themselves a nice little battle for second place, and that was meaningful because it had TQCC implications. Olympia will have to settle for the Globe Cub once again. Behind them, simply a huge pack of teams stuck at 83 and 82 points, including the defending champions from Loudon, who may have been showing their age a little bit. Pocono City will be happy to return to champions league play as they head to the Globe Cup, and Centralia’s second half resurgence will mean that James Martin’s coaching job in intact for now, although he is rumored to be resigning anyway and Berber will take over this team. Though rumors have it that Centralia could opt for Brighton’s Mark McCafferty, who was a former Cougar. If they would, then look for Brighton to be the one that hires Berber as head coach. Either way, Casey looks to be leading a team next season. Also very happy with their season will be Putnam Lake, as they are a part of that big pack. They had been on a slight decline, and spent a lot of money to try and correct this. They’ll want to do better then 9th, but they look to have themselves sorted out now to prevent a further drop. Speaking of dropping, Hastings was terrible in the second half and will head down. Bradford Town’s stay ends up lasting one season at this level, and Thumbria Bay will also be relegated. Although recently they’ve stayed at the NPL level, they’ve bounced around before. Fans of Daytopia, Ashland, and Stroudsbourg see their teams survive for now, but they are very concerned with how badly their team’s disappointed.

Springfield’s championship winning starting XI:

CAFUNDÉU - PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART I OF V
“The Mother of modern domestic football”


The same introduction as ever: the most international league of the world, mother of modern domestic football, returns to activity, and the teams are ready to fight for trophies again. A good time for domestic football, as many countries are improving their domestic teams, something that only benefits football as a whole.

The line-ups of the 20 best teams of the country(First Division Teams) will probably be the following (foreigners in italics, best 3 players in bold) – (Experts’ Ratings details - the three journalists give the team a rating, from 1 to 5 stars [* - practically relegated; ** - intermediate team, battling against relegation; *** - intermediate team, battling for a top 8 place; **** - top 8 team, battling for a phase title; ***** - battling for the main title]). Finally the writers have decided to look at the uncountable number of mistakes which happened in many of previous editions, and now we hope that there aren’t any more name repetitions or wrong info:


PETARDOS S/A: Kardec; Bogart, Mills and Amandíl; Marcus Vinícius, Renildo, Pak Yongho and Hawk; Razov, Alves and Night.
Coach: Christophe Argentier.
President: Augusto Brown.
Team Full Name: Petardos Sociedade Anônima de Futebol.
Team Style: Offensive, uses the centre, passing style.
Strongest Point: explosive attack and midfield, even the bench players are very good.
Weakest Point: team balanced in all areas.
Nickname: Bilionários (Billionaires).
Stadium Used: Obelisco Monumental, in Lasft (cap. 300,000).
State: Lasft.
Team Sponsor: Globo Multimedia.
Home Kit: blue shirt and white shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt with blue narrow stripes and blue shorts.
Other facts: the national title didn’t came again last season, but now the team has another objective, which has been escaping for years: an international competition. The strategy this season was to strengthen even more the team, bringing world class players and filling the bench with player any team in the world would like to have. They are, as always, favourites for everything.
Transfer Market: some players left, as González and Igor, but those who came are considered better: defender Matt Bogart and midfielders Pak Yongho and Marcus Vinícius, building a midfield considered the best of the world by some.
Fans’ Favourites: with no doubt the fans’ favourite is the midfielder Laborious Hawk, the eternal #10 of Petardos S/A. But players like Renildo and Kiso Night have already conquered the heart of the fans too, due to their efficient and brilliant service for the Billionaires so far.
Good Bench Players: Sievers (goalkeeper), Mané (midfielder), Peixeira (defender), Truta (attacker), Ricardinho (midfielder).
The Fans Expect: international success – the League title.
Fans’ style: fanatic (big number) – usually seen as being part of high-class; considered mercenaries who would do anything for money.
Club Tradition: very traditional – worldwide success and fame.
Experts’ ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (*****), Jorge Lang (*****), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (*****).


CAFUNDÓ DO JUTA: Fernández Montes; Lampert, Kariid, Hocn and João Carlos; Doramílton, Montego, Dante and Kortsarian; Jeong Jihun and Rafael Nunes.
Coach: Andreas Gilsoweller Veiga.
President: Tarcísio Castro Sahid.
Team Full Name: Esporte Clube Cafundó do Juta.
Team Style: offensive, passes a lot, but mixes short and long passes.
Strongest Point: the attack.
Weakest Point: no solid defensive midfield.
Nickname: Esquadrão de Prata (Silver Squadron).
Stadium Used: Praça Maior, in Cafundó do Juta (cap. 180,000).
State: Juta.
Team Sponsor: Canabrava Cachaça.
Home Kit: grey (silver) shirt with white vertical stripes and grey shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt and grey shorts.
Other facts: the team that has the most number of supporters in the country. In the last seasons, the team became a “permanent runner-up”, being ever in the top positions but failing to win titles. The team even failed to go to the TQCC some times (not the last one). So, the mission is just one: to return to be a dominant force in Cafundéu, with the league title.
Transfer Market: the team seems to work to become a new Petardos, with a bench full of stars. The arrival of Fernández Montes will refresh the goalkeeper position, while Montego and Dante come to build a midfield ready to set up many goals, although still weak defensively. Vervánt comes as one of the main substitute players of the team.
Fans’ Favourites: the defender Hizzen Hocn is the fans’ favourite with a good margin over his opponent, mostly due to his many years of service with the silver shirt. Kortsarian and Jeong Jihun are slowly winning their space too, and others (like Lampert and Kariid) as liked players.
Good Bench Players: Raulzito (midfielder), Hélio (goalkeeper), Vervánt (midfielder), Gordon (attacker) and Jojô (defender).
The Fans Expect: the League title.
Fans’ style: extremely fanatic (huge number) – team is seen as the “people’s team”, due for it having people from all classes and even different regions!
Club Tradition: one of the football pioneers in the country – highly successful.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (*****), Jorge Lang (*****), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (*****).

CAFUNDÉU - PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART II OF V


RANCA TOCO: Salathiël; Kim Yongji, Manuso, Datena and Higgins; Underdark, Boimoks, Mus’haf, Kléber and Paquetá; Hubert.
Coach: Vladmir Lopes.
President: Maníaco do Parque.
Team Full Name: Associação Atlética Ranca Toco de Carandirú.
Team Style: Extremely defensive, focuses on counterattacks and long shots.
Strongest Point: strong midfield.
Weakest Point: no natural wingers.
Nickname: Sarrafeiros.
Stadium Used: Presídio, in Carandirú City (cap. 75,000).
State: Central.
Team Sponsor: Alerta Alarm Systems.
Home Kit: purple shirt with yellow vertical stripes and purple shorts.
Away Kit: yellow shirt and purple shorts.
Other Facts: team famous for its violence, which is incentivized by the directors of the club. Gives high value to pride and home games. Its supporters are very violent too, as most of them are prisoners in the prison city. It has a new coach, still unproven, but the same good line-up. The team now returned to the first position in the world rankings, and are now clearly one of the top teams in both Cafundéu and the world.
Transfer Market: Fiero, not able to perform well in the last season, left the team. About the reinforcements, two players came for the team’s midfield: Ock Boimoks and Kléber. The team continues defensive, though. It doesn’t use 5 defenders anymore, but now uses just 1 strikers.
Fans’ Favourites: the attacker Hubert is curiously the idol of a team which supporters love a physical, rough and defensive game. Behind him, there is Underdark, who showed his love for the team by dying his hair purple. Salathiël rose to the position of third idol after the loss of Norbert Fiero.
Good Bench Players: Haesumé (defender), Curupira (goalkeeper), Tonhão (defender), Júrangil (midfielder), Penado (attacker).
The Fans Expect: international success – the League title.
Fans’ style: extremely fanatic and highly violent (huge number) – are seen as violent people, vandals and “terrorists” (an accurate view). Sometimes people tend to associate Ranca Toco with the lower classes too. Also, the team is the favourite inside Cafundéu’s prisons.
Club Tradition: very traditional – worldwide famous and successful
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (*****), Jorge Lang (*****), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (*****).


A.F.F.: Zecão; Leonardo, Batoré, Tingacens and Enrique; Silveira, Mijak, Amey and Serrano; Lynch and Kuniyoshi.
Coach: Benjamin Oliveira.
President: Sir Petrônio Barbugli.
Team Full Name: Abbade Futebol Familiar Clube.
Team Style: Offensive, uses the wings, long passes style.
Strongest Point: midfield, especially with Silveira and Serrano.
Weakest Point: a balanced team.
Nickname: Os Monges (The Monks).
Stadium Used: Arena América, in Abadia (cap. 120,000).
State: Old Cities.
Team Sponsor: Banespa Investments.
Home Kit: red shirt with black hoops and black shorts.
Away Kit: black shirt and black shorts.
Other facts: this team is controlled by a powerful family, and has a lot of money. Finally they decided to use this wealth, and bought many players. Last season the team found glory in winning the league even with some disadvantage in relation to Petardos S/A. The team saw some changes, but remains strong to battle for international success or the league again.
Transfer Market: Oscar left, Agostinho too, Gaëif and Dixon retired… but the players coming are great ones… Batoré from Galáxia, Tingacens from Vephrall, Amey from Candelaria And Marquez, Kuniyoshi from Dancougar… great signings, one of the teams which had the best reinforcements.
Fans’ Favourite: Silveira, Leonardo and Abreu, due to the fact they started their careers in A.F.F.. Serrano has popularity, but some supporters believe he is too much a “superstar”. Enrique, the defence guardian, is loved by most supporters. And the attacker Matt Lynch is much respected, especially now he became a starter.
Good Bench Players: Srion (defender), Gagnon (midfielder), Abreu (midfielder), Mastaru (attacker), Ramalho (defender).
The Fans Expect: league title or international success.
Fans’ style: passionate but calm (good number) – majority of fans are adults or old people, and because of that other teams’ supporters generalize A.F.F. as being the “retirement club team”.
Club Tradition: one of the football pioneers in the country – enjoyed a lot of success.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (*****), Jorge Lang (*****), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (****).


DUNBOOR FC: Hodgson; Labbé, Papadiamántis, Marshall and Rogério; Jules, Miguel Silva and Kries; Matoso, Adams and Fiero.
Coach: Javier Sanchez.
President: Isidoro de Paula Farías.
Team Full Name: Dunboor Futebol Clube.
Team Style: slightly defensive, uses the centre, passing style.
Strongest Point: very good midfield.
Weakest Point: central defence.
Nickname: Leões do Norte (Northern Lions).
Stadium Used: Maracatuzão, in Dunboor (cap. 135,000).
State: Dunboor.
Team Sponsor: Banco Econômico.
Home Kit: dark blue shirt with dark blue shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt with white shorts.
Other facts: team that likes to use foreigners, takes advantage of the cold climate of the city in its home games. Dunboor keeps among the top, although far from the TQCC. For this season, the team’s a bit pessimistic due to the team’s top players leaving and the reinforcements not being able to really cover the ones that left. Can they return to the TQCC?
Transfer Market: the last-minute transfer involving Marcus Vinícius in exchange of Miguel Silva and a lot of money weakened the team, as Marcus was the team’s best player. Ainsley also left, but a better player came in his place: the goalscorer Adams, one of the most praised players of last seasons. Fiero comes too, but his fame is older. Marshall and Rogério come to compose the defence, but with suspicions.
Fans’ Favourites: the two that remained from last season, Marcus Vinícius and Drani Warsin, both left the club. Now, the team currently has only one big idol: Charles Jules. Others just try to repeat his success.
Good Bench Players: Plínio (full-back), Ricardo Cruz (attacker), Didi (defender), Oreme (midfielder), Lalo (attacker).
The Fans Expect: qualification for the TQCC.
Fans’ style: festive (good number) – they are one of the most festive and motivating supporter groups of the country, but their mood can change suddenly from good to bad.
Club Tradition: just slightly traditional – enjoyed a lot of success.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (****), Jorge Lang (***), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (***).


CLUBE IMPERIAL: Vincze; Samman, Gustavo Rangel and Samba; Fabinho, Pedrinho, Yi Yeongpyo, André Diniz and Zubo; Spooner and Robinson.
Coach: Júlio Vargas.
President: Prince Hector Van Tocco.
Team Full Name: Real Clube Imperial.
Team Style: Extremely offensive, uses the centre and with a fast passes style.
Strongest Point: the defence in general.
Weakest Point: good offensive midfield.
Nickname: Time Real (Royal Team).
Stadium Used: Estádio Rei Albieri Van Tocco, in Cafundó do Juta (cap. 210,001).
State: Juta.
Team Sponsor: Velog Automóveis.
Home Kit: dark blue with green vertical stripes and green shorts.
Away Kit: light green shirt with dark blue shorts.
Other Facts: unable to keep the main players and fight for the TQCC, the team had an awful last season, and went after changes. The new coach is a former coach of the team who brought success to it, but now the supporters only want to see Clube Imperial returning to success, as last season’s results were extremely disappointing, the worst ever of the team in the First Division.
Transfer Market: more losses than arrivals, including retired players. Robinson was the main signing, a new striker to help the team. Gustavo Rangel is young but talented, and Zubo very experienced. Fabinho came as a big signing too.
Fans’ Favourites: with the retirement of Yuji Watanabe, only Nei Samba and Nando enjoy some popularity in the team, but not a big one.
Good Bench Players: Selmir (goalkeeper), Zorba (attacker), Dênis (defender)
The Fans Expect: qualification for international competitions.
Fans’ style: emphatic (average number) – mostly composed by nobles and people related to the Royal Family.
Club Tradition: not very old, with just recent tradition conquered by titles – highly successful.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (***), Jorge Lang (***), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (****).


ATLÉTICO JUTENSE: Garrido; Davis, Edson Lobo, Maximus and Yi Beomsuk; Súrion, Rubiano and Vavasour; Splebist, Nando and Fresco.
Coach: Ensio Varg.
President: Maciel Arango, Baron of Tijhus.
Team Full Name: Clube Atlético Jutense.
Team Style: Very balanced, uses more the centre, passing style.
Strongest Point: the attack.
Weakest Point: wingers, both in defence and midfield.
Nickname: Galo.
Stadium Used: Cerradão, in Cafundó do Juta (cap. 60,000).
State: Juta.
Team Sponsor: Canfudea Canned Food.
Home Kit: yellow shirt and red shorts.
Away Kit: red shirt and red shorts.
Other Facts: another season with many changes for Atlético Jutense, the first champion of the CCFM Cafundelense league. This time, the team had a good season, winning the Empress Cup and doing a good job in the league. So, the signings were more ambitious, and the team entered to the group of teams with 5 good bench players. This time, at least a place in the Globe Cup must be conquered.
Transfer Market: attacker Jehoepe Splebist comes to make a pair with legendary player Fresco. Vavasour, after rumoured to join the team last season, this time makes the transfer, and is going to be one of the team’s key players. Defender Maximus comes to be a starter, the same about the talented goalkeeper Garrido, who wasn’t getting enough playing time in SC Lasft. Finally, Nando comes to be a star of the team.
Fans’ Favourites: with the retirement of both Gerrin Sidan and the legend and son of a legend Zé Sho, Yi Beomsuk is now the only player with a close relationship with the fans, being the team leader.
Good Bench Players: Gregory (defender), Sussex (midfielder), Jean Carlos (attacker), Marcos Aurélio (midfielder), Wallase (midfielder).
The Fans Expect: qualification for international competitions.
Fans’ style: passionate (big number) – seen as peaceful supporters, who enjoy good rivalries.
Club Tradition: very traditional – successful at domestic stage.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (****), Jorge Lang (****), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (***).

CAFUNDÉU - PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART III OF V


ATLÉTICO INSULAR: Gray; Igor, Eiras, Barba and Hinkel; Schneider, Sporadic, Dylandy and Jacobs; Sinclair and Anti Ilmari.
Coach: Waldyr Toffano.
President: Eduardo “Furão” Maciel.
Team Full Name: Instituto-Clube Atlético Insular.
Team Style: Very offensive, uses the wings, passing style.
Strongest Point: good offensive midfield.
Weakest Point: poor defence.
Nickname: Leões do Litoral (Coast Lions).
Stadium Used: Cúpula Tropical, in Ilha Eremita (cap. 50,000).
State: Coast.
Team Sponsor: Duramais Batteries.
Home Kit: half-blue-half-yellow shirt and light blue shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt and half-blue-half-yellow shorts.
Other Facts: after years managing to reach good, although intermediate, positions in the national league, now Atlético Insular faces difficulties, and can for the first time in seasons battle against relegations. The team seems to have weakened, but the supporters are confident the team can keep playing well, to stay at least above the weakest teams of the division.
Transfer Market: few signings now, with former Petardos S/A player Igor being the biggest one. Eiras comes from the relegated Clube Comercial, and the only international signing comes in the name of Kelly Sporadic, from Silexhera.
Fans’ Favourites: three are the top ones: midfielder Jacobs is by far the most loved one, but behind him both the attacker Sinclair and midfielder Schneider are well-seen.
Good Bench Players: Neneca (goalkeeper), Brutamontes (defender), Gertal (midfielder).
The Fans Expect: intermediate position.
Fans’ style: emphatic – are called “cavemen” for living in an isolated island. They usually don’t follow the team in away games.
Club Tradition: weak tradition – consolidated 1st Division team
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (**), Jorge Lang (**), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (**).


AMÉRICA: Murilo; Bourassa, Bernardo and Orton; Salivani, Cockbadger, Marino, González and Túlio; Kennedy and Lunz.
Coach: Eduardo Bosschaart.
President: Cidão Varteiro.
Team Full Name: América Esporte Clube Lasftense.
Team Style: bit offensive, turns defensive when playing away.
Strongest Point: the offensive midfield.
Weakest Point: a balanced team, although not world class.
Nickname: Diabos de Lasft (Lasft Devils).
Stadium Used: Estádio Marte, in Lasft (cap. 40,000).
State: Lasft.
Team Sponsor: Editora 25 de Maio.
Home Kit: red shirt and white shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt and red shorts.
Other Facts: this team isn’t old, and is a big surprise. Founded by fanatic football supporters, it grew fast and now is the third biggest team of Lasft. It uses young players, together with some known players from foreign NTs, and now became one of the top 8 teams of the country. After some promising seasons, now América is losing good players and returning to be just an average team.
Transfer Market: three new players in the midfield, to substitute the ones who left the team: Cockbadger, Marino and Jamie González, who had a below average season in Petardos S/A.
Fans’ Favourites: Túlio is really respected by the fans, but currently the biggest idol of the team is the young goalkeeper Murilo, considered to “finally be the goalkeeper Cafundéu deserves”.
Good Bench Players: Bruno (defender), Zatte (midfielder), Vorotaev (attacker).
The Fans Expect: top 8 position.
Fans’ style: fanatic (average number) – love to make jokes about their rivals, and to provoke and be provoked. Can cause some confusions, involving even violence, with opponents.
Club Tradition: weak tradition – consolidated 1st Division team.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (***), Jorge Lang (***), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (***).

CENTRAL UNITED: Subodnir; Belon, Grilo and Terra; Nakombi, Cícero, Carney, Wilson and Arsenault; Ainsley and Griffiths.
Coach: Júlio Mercegues.
President: Renan Pedrosa.
Team Full Name: União de Futebol do Estado Central.
Team Style: offensive one, using the centre of the field and long ranged shots.
Strongest Point: the midfield.
Weakest Point: the defence.
Nickname: Alvinegro.
Stadium Used: Toca do Tatu “Bola”, in Central City (cap. 118,000).
State: Central.
Team Sponsor: Tio João - food in general.
Home Kit: white shirt and black shorts.
Away Kit: black shirt with white stripes and black shorts.
Other Facts: after returning to the first division some seasons ago, this team is trying to recover itself. Central United is a traditional team which got used to win titles, and had to get used to just stay in intermediate positions. Slowly, the team is returning to get to the top positions, but there is still a lot of work to be done. It currently faces an up-and-down situation.
Transfer Market: from other Cafundelense teams, came Belon, Cícero and Ainsley, who maybe won’t be enough to cover the absence of Adams. Zack Wilson comes from Sarzonia and Subodnir from Yafor 2.
Fans’ Favourites: Fugiro Nakombi is the team idol, one which the players identify themselves with, with little space for the other teams to be considered as real idols.
Good Bench Players: Dzeko (midfielder), Luisinho (midfielder), Rilin (full-back).
The Fans Expect: top 8 position.
Fans’ style: passionate (good number) – usually have inventive songs to motivate the team and joke with their opponents. Other teams’ supporters usually associate them with clowns, children or gay people.
Club Tradition: one of the football pioneers in the country – successful at domestic stage.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (**), Jorge Lang (***), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (**).


PORTO LACRUZ: Taylor; Kaufman, Schmidt and Rodrigues; Capstraw, An Pilrip, Colwyn, Pinoc and Florentino; Melchior and Oscar.
Coach: Waldenyr Caldas.
President: Compadre Washington Axé.
Team Full Name: Sociedade Esportiva Porto Lacruz.
Team Style: very balanced, likes to make many passes without haste.
Strongest Point: midfield.
Weakest Point: attack.
Nickname: Praianos.
Stadium Used: Estádio Nacional dos Cocos, in Porto Lacruz (cap. 72,500).
State: Espinal.
Team Sponsor: CMG Medicines.
Home Kit: orange shirt and white shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt and orange shorts.
Other Facts: Porto Lacruz is growing, and fast. The team has money, although no one knows exactly from where this money comes from. The midfield of this team is among the best, and in general this team can really become a top eight of the Cafundelense league, if it is not already one of them. Entered in the Globe Cup last season, and wants to repeat the performance.
Transfer Market: Capstraw comes to reinforce even more the midfield, with the only other signing being the arrival of league champion Juan Oscar. Not many signings, but the most important fact is that no one left.
Fans’ Favourites: the team has ever had the problem of having few players staying on the team for a long time. The biggest idols are Colwyn and An Pilrip. Both are leaders of the team, with Colwyn being an excellent passer and An Pilrip using his extremely good vision and positioning to help Porto Lacruz. Lately, Florentino and Schmidt won a lot of popularity too.
Good Bench Players: Talnae (midfielder), Baecker (attacker), Roubanis (defender).
The Fans Expect: top 8 position.
Fans’ style: empathic but calm (average number) – the supporters usually don’t get overexcited, preferring to rest rather than getting stressed with the game.
Club Tradition: just slightly traditional – reaching 1st Division stability.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (***), Jorge Lang (****), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (***).


SERRANO: Vachon; Radicci, Guilherme, Célio Santos and Korkmaz; Lewton, Hawthorne, Freeman, Krestenitis and Midorikawa; Cromsumé.
Coach: Eneus Richardson.
President: Victor Correia Aquino.
Team Full Name: Serrano Futebol Clube.
Team Style: defensive, explores the wings.
Strongest Point: the goalkeeper Vachon.
Weakest Point: central defence.
Nickname: Alpinistas (Climbers).
Stadium Used: Cume da Montanha, in Serra Cabral (cap. 30,000).
State: Central.
Team Sponsor: Guaraná Muquirana.
Home Kit: brown shirt with details in yellow and white shorts.
Away Kit: white shirt and brown shorts.
Other Facts: Serrano has an average team, and can escape relegation easily. The former president claimed that the team would be the most improving team last season, and would become a powerhouse, but even his mother didn’t believe in his words. For this season, this team even worked in getting some players, so it can perform well.
Transfer Market: two players came but probably won’t receive much playing time at the beginning, being those Deschamps and Bogota. The third signing is Vachon, from Septentrionia, who will battle for the position of goalkeeper with Rossiter.
Fans’ Favourites: the team doesn’t have idols, so there isn’t a fan favourite. The player with most popularity is the young full-back Radicci, who probably will have this status in one season or two.
Good Bench Players: Bogota (midfielder), Rossiter (goalkeeper), Deschamps (attacker).
The Fans Expect: intermediate position.
Fans’ style: fanatic (small number) – really crazy for their team, the Serrano supporters are completely unpredictable, so unpredictable we don’t know what to write here about them.
Club Tradition: weak tradition – newcomer to 1st Division environment.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (***), Jorge Lang (**), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (**).

CAFUNDÉU - PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART IV OF V


RIO BONITO: Tom; Sercan, Minanad, Jeong Yakyong and Yukikaze; French, Pak Yongmin, Guaxupé and Bond; Pedrão Paulada and Misina.
Coach: Manuel Padaria.
President: Barnabé Casanova.
Team Full Name: Grêmio Esportivo Rio Bonito.
Team Style: defensive, uses counterattacks and wing plays.
Strongest Point: the goalkeeper Tom.
Weakest Point: the attack.
Nickname: Mosqueteiros.
Stadium Used: Samseong Arena, in Rio Bonito (cap. 40,000).
State: Dunboor.
Team Sponsor: Samseong Electronics.
Home Kit: dark red shirt with black hoops and black shorts.
Away Kit: orange shirt and white shorts.
Other Facts: this team has a big foreign investor, Samseong. Due to this, the supporters hope to see the team doing well in the competition, not just fighting to avoid relegation. Last season they managed to stay away from the relegation zone, and repeating this performance should be enough… or not, as the investors are ever wanting more.
Transfer Market: the investors brought midfielder Pak Yongmin, but not much more was heard about reinforcements. The biggest improvements were in the structure of the team.
Fans’ Favourites: with time, the supporters created a close link with two players of the team: the defender Jeong Yakyong and the promising goalkeeper Tom, who saved the team countless times.
Good Bench Players: Tucker (attacker), Komároni (midfielder), Paulo Lebre (midfielder).
The Fans Expect: mid-table position.
Fans’ style: excited (average number) – usually the Rio Bonito supporters were few, among people linked to the club’s foundation. Now, with Samseong’s investment, this number is increasing.
Club Tradition: just a slightly traditional – newcomer to 1st Division environment.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (**), Jorge Lang (**), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (**).


SC LASFT: Moore; Zé Luiz, Mesquita, Ueda and H.Mohammed; Bert Lithsumé, Cole and Culnámo; Amate and Ruiz.
Coach: Neto.
President: Alcides Mattos.
Team Full Name: Sport Club Lasft.
Team Style: balanced, likes to control the game’s pace.
Strongest Point: good midfield.
Weakest Point: young attack.
Nickname: Golden Team.
Stadium Used: Estádio Padre Anchieta, in Lasft (cap. 70,000).
State: Lasft.
Team Sponsor: Afiada Shaving Razors.
Home Kit: black shirt with details in gold and black shorts.
Away Kit: golden shirt and black shorts.
Other Facts: although the team now seems solid in the First Division, it is far from repeating the good performances of the past, when it was among the best teams of the entire league. Now, the team brought the former NT player Neto as a coach, and some new players to attempt to improve and return to the old times.
Transfer Market: Ueda comes to substitute Matt Bogart, while Bert and Amate are filling the holes that the team noticed last season. Mohammed, after a good WC qualifying with Akbarabad, comes to play as a starter.
Fans’ Favourites: their current favourite is the attacker Ruiz, who overperformed former favourite Juca Bala.
Good Bench Players: Tércio (defender), Juca Bala (attacker), Rudnei (attacker).
The Fans Expect: intermediate position.
Fans’ style: passionate (big number) – usually associated with poorest people of the region, due to the rivalry with Petardos S/A.
Club Tradition: one of the football pioneers of the country – successful at domestic stage.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (*), Jorge Lang (**), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (***).


KHALMAR-TIJHUS: Theros; Tiago, Khedira, Odair and Valério; Particle, Nallval, Oberdan and Diego; Gnomo and Acosta.
Coach: Ke Sho.
President: Augusto “Augustão” Mantena.
Team Full Name: Clube de Futebol Lorde Khalmar de Tijhus.
Team Style: extremely balanced, controls pace of the game.
Strongest Point: the attack.
Weakest Point: the defensive midfield.

Stadium Used: Jóia da Lagoa, in Tijhus (cap. 45,000).
State: Juta.
Team Sponsor: Agora Saúde.
Home Kit: orange shirt and black shorts.
Away Kit: grey shirt and black shorts.
Other Facts: after getting promoted with a good margin over the second-placed team, Khalmar-Tijhus’s mission is now to continue in the First Division and to do a respectable performance this season. Last season they managed this, and the objectives aren’t much different now.
Transfer Market: James Particle is the only player coming from abroad, and has a lot of expectations around him. Also, the goalkeeper Theros will bring some confidence to the team. Cafundelenses Gnomo and Tiago complete the transfers.
Fans’ Favourite: Khalmar-Tijhus’s team is so different than the ones of seasons ago that the fans really don’t have a favourite player yet. Marquinhos, whom the players liked a lot, left. Now Diego is the one that comes the closest.
Good Bench Players: Faelandaerl (goalkeeper), Longstone (attacker), Tererê (midfielder).
The Fans Expect: intermediate position.
Fans’ style: passionate (small number) – a small local group of supporters, Khalmar-Tijhus usually has the minority of fans even when playing at home (of course, when playing opponents with big number of supporters).
Club Tradition: very traditional – was a consolidated 1st Division team.
Experts’ Ratings: Sílvio Ruiz (***), Jorge Lang (**), Carlos Alberto Gujabre (*).

Other Facts: this one is a traditional team, in fact, but got lost in time. Now, suddenly, it was revived by loyal supporters and could reach the first division. After a good last season, the team spent a lot of money to attempt to at least repeat the performance, and now has a well-built team.
Transfer Market: lots, really lots of transfers. Young and Gut to the defence, Kabir and Gut to the midfield, Oim to the goal (as Felipe can leave soon) and both Vainarell and Diors to the future, considered talented players.

Other Facts: Metropolitano returns to the First Division just one season after getting relegated, and this time also with an international title. Okay, it was a SBCC, but at least it is a title, something that motivates the team to battle to escape relegation… and, why not, to attempt a nice position?
Transfer Market: for a team that just got promoted, Metropolitano made good signings. Celebrindal, Lurich and Stigur join Di Angelo’s team.

Transfer Market: the arrivals of Günther Jänicke and Panther Doctor were the reinforcements of Engenheiro Peres in their first season in the top division. They were good ones, as the team level isn’t very big.
