Thank you thank you and definitely feeling better; nothing major just an unfortunate mishap with a pavement and my ankle. :lol2:

I don't think we've ever banned somebody from every major sporting event in NS Sports nor could we. ICly, the FFR has certainly done enough to be banned from the NSWC though.

Now we are at the midway point, I have kindly updated my tabulated tables with Head 2 Head taken into account before Goal Difference, which is not reflected in the official results tables according to the hosts.

Alternatively, you could look at the Groups Overview in this sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NnOJnYy8LcwoqTrJo6YwJDehArg1-MSi9_HUQYShTT4/htmlview# to get a quick idea of the tables.
Of course, you could still refer to my Google drive link based on the quoted post above to view the exact reason for why the particular order was provided. The summary and the main table following Head to Head before GD only works for now, due to the difficulty in calculating Head to Head results every day. However, the individual tables sorted as such can be found in every individual group sheets in the tab 'Fantasy - Mid WS', which will freeze at the current mid-qualifying period as it is used to calculate the fantasy bonuses and the midway point.

As my last RP post states, I'm looking for a new manager after a possible Cup of Harmony appearance or after qualifying ends, since the chances I'll actually make the proper are pretty much zero.

TGs expressing interest with a particular candidate named in the TG are welcomed. So, too, would a RP post in which you have a prospective would-be applicant looking over the opening and deciding to apply.

If you would like to keep my current interim manager and/or my current interim assistant manager as an assistant, please note that in the application.

Thank you.

My apologies for my lack of involvement this WC.

A combination of Christmas, extensive travel, and a rather difficult winter illness-wise (for those of you aware of my long-term health condition, I'm increasingly finding the winter cold season to be a slog as my immune system gradually gets worse) have limited my involvement.

I hope to pick up again over the closing qualification matchdays, but I recognise this hasn't been ideal.

I'll likely use the knights again next WC because I haven't really been able to give them their due this tournament.

Thank you for the kind words.

My main problem is that illnesses that would likely be minor colds for most of you increasingly turn into flattening chest infections that me bed-ridden for days for me.

It's not much fun.

But enough of feeling sorry for myself; let's try and get some RP done.
