SCFA Season 9 Preview

City: Zarss, West Flania
Stadium: Igbar Steel Arena (cap. 15,100)
Nickname(s): The Porters
Coaches:
Manager: Enker Luyhelerint (60 y/o)
Assistants: Dukar Oluli (55 y/o), Pruld Ravoyna (45 y/o)
Captain: Alpertti Nazarola
Notable Products: Arlo Damot, Kekoan Pober
Club Summary: The very definition of a blue collar club, founded by dock workers, for dock workers, their colors are derived from those of the Zarss Port Authority. Their modest finances make it difficult for them to retain talent for very long, but they do have a good youth academy, and are generally regarded as one of the better teams in League 2 at identifying and developing talent. They have something of an unofficial pipeline relationship with Traal Athletics.
League Form:
S3: League 2 - 10th
S4: League 2 - 3rd
S5: League 1 - 13th
S6: League 1 - 16th
S7: League 2 - 2nd
S8: League 1 - 11th

This Year: Porters are becoming something of a yo-yo team between the second and third tiers. Unfortunately, that means it's likely time for them to head back down for a few seasons. At first glance, they would appear ready to repeat last season's finish, not great, but good enough to avoid the drop. They haven't lost anyone too important, and Farsjo is replaced with Algolia reserve Tarcha, who will be a real leader for the team. Looking at their roster, though, it's still really unclear just how they finished eleventh a season ago. They aren't going to have a dangerous finisher at striker unless Pontar or Pekkanen takes a big step forward. Nazarola probably should have retired if you ask me (he didn't). On defense, Alinejad is a solid young player, but still makes her share of mistakes, which the rest of the back line is ill suited to clean up after. They make their share of mistakes as well, and Heikkila, simply put, isn't on anyone's awards shortlist.

SCFA Season 9 Preview
League 2

Promotion Chasers:
Image
City: Hensha, Megabrantis
Manager: Marith Alumau (50 y/o)
Captain: Tuco Durrig, CB, 30
Key Players: Gurgen Raynott, ST, 32; Kaial Aberoa, CM, 27
Outlook: Hensha's relegation was an absolute shock, and their roster looks the strongest in the league on paper, despite a couple of departures in the window.
Image
City: Rudlit, West Flania
Manager: Insco Desh (56 y/o)
Captain: Terentis Ebeling, CB, 32
Key Players: Ozol Gebara, LM, 35; Dragan Mlakor, ST, 34
Outlook: This team has a lot of experience, and plenty of players who have played at a higher level than league 2. The high average age of their attack could be a problem though.
Image
City: Rudlit, West Flania
Manager: Karsan Lytten (47 y/o)
Captain: Graven Rodby, CB, 31
Key Players: Teysa Barga, RM, 23; Marta Andzelko, LM, 30
Outlook: Rovers lost several important contributors from last season, and will likely struggle to find their stride. They should still be among the better teams in the league, but aren't favored for automatic promotion.
Image
City: Gryrorik, Molvania
Manager: Vyator Orlyonok (62 y/o)
Captain: Aldona Pavlovets, 33
Key Players: Koraljka Maruzhka, GK, 27; Visvaldis Shveikin, ST, 33
Outlook: Traktor stayed up in League 1 a season longer than anyone expected, but to see them back at this level was always going to happen eventually. Still, they've kept the team together, more or less, and have a good mix of youth and experience.
Image
City: Zarss, East Flania
Manager: Dzevad Haberek (59 y/o)
Captain: Alvar Bliziotis, CB, 38
Key Players: Pavel Dromokov, RM, 29; Polter Albrecht, ST, 33
Outlook: Flania are another very experienced team, perhaps to the point of excess. They're a dark horse for promotion, but no one will be surprised if they don't make it.

Mid-Table Sides:
Image
City: Syneca, Sivolvia
Manager: Sidri Halena (41 y/o)
Captain: Eder Ulloa, CB, 32
Key Players: Junder Eklund, ST,. 28; Malia Nekefha, RB, 31
Outlook: Bayfront have been steadily improving under Halena, but still seem a pretty long way from making a run for promotion.
Image
City: Lublova, Molvania
Manager: Ljator Shvets (53 y/o)
Captain: Dzemetz Klepacki, GK, 36
Key Players: Markko Kalnins, RM, 26; Rivor Garinik, CB, 23
Outlook: Dynamo Lublova persuaded Klepacki to come back for one more season, and have put together a decent young core. Their relative lack of experience may hold them back, but if they can keep this group together, we could seem them in League 1 before long.
Image
City: Dzrebo, Molvania
Manager: Antonin Terviuc (52 y/o)
Captain: Urho Kneib, CB, 34
Key Players: Ljudmila Savka, LW, 26; Mija Grabundzija, RB, 29
Outlook: Lokomotiv have settled into life in the third tier after a couple seasons in League 1 a few years back. Their team is well-balanced between youth and experience, but just doesn't have much flash or star power at present.
Image
City: Brantisvogan, Megabrantis
Manager: Rikard Samppo (55 y/o)
Captain: Elinara Hlavacek, CM, 32
Key Players: Morwen Pinder, RB, 28; Jerad Walaro, LM, 24
Outlook: The third Brantisvogan side so far in the rearview of the other two that some people forget they exist. They've been in the promotion conversation the past couple seasons, but seem to be fading back to a more average team. Unless their young players suddenly live up to their potential, they're unlikely to challenge this season.
Image
City: Sasava, Molvania
Manager: Mirko Hodulov (44 y/o)
Captain: Pavel Ludviczak, ST, 31
Key Players: Dibran Anitza, CM, 34; Parthag Krysczienz, RB, 27
Outlook: One of the more overlooked clubs in Molvania, they've also been among the most consistent, gearing up for their ninth straight season in League 2. All signs point to another finish somewhere between 7th and 11th, a feat they've accomplished five seasons running.
Image
City: Traal, West Flania
Manager: Kipu Kaskisuo (49 y/o)
Captain: Gorven Anilta, LB, 32
Key Players: Pandos Abhe, ST, 25; Palar Lampawog, RM, 28
Outlook: Flania spent season 6 in League 1, but have generally been much more at home here. Like so many other teams at this level, they play slightly conservative tactics, with a focus on team play and possession. That kind of team play is good enough, but isn't going to have your team pushing for the top of the table.

Relegation Bait
Image
City: Bardjov, Molvania
Manager: Marta Kolusz (41 y/o)
Captain: Niko Darski, RM, 29
Key Players: Janar Falkrad, LB, 34; Zuzen Tabon, CB, 32
Outlook: A far cry from the team that made a run through the preliminaries of the Series B Champions Trophy 8 seasons ago. Long gone are the likes of Rebljeten, Vepcojat, and Vrboska, and they'll need immediate impact from newcomers Falkrad and Tabon to stay up.
Image
City: Halfarian, Algolia
Manager: Arani Sellan (48 y/o)
Captain: Kaleva Haugen, CB, 34
Key Players: Ensio Doba, LM, 32;
Outlook: One of the 16 new teams that joined the SCFA in Season 3, Halfarian are one of 4 of those teams to earn a second promotion to League 2, and will try to be just the third to successfully avoid immediate relegation. They don't look very much up to the task though.
Image
City: Orenfeld, Megabrantis
Manager: Einer Kaljot (50 y/o)
Captain: Brehan Duhald, CM, 37
Key Players: Mladen Visnovsky, CB, 27; Tuija Nikolan, RM, 32
Outlook: Like Halfarian, Orenfeld are one of the newer clubs that joined in Season 3, and are trying to be the very first of that group to play three consecutive seasons in League 2. With Duhald back for a final season, and a couple good acquisitions, they might just have a chance.
Image
City: Chalesm, Megabrantis
Manager: Stigand Gorver (40 y/o)
Captain: Jaeduke Arwin, AM, 36
Key Players: Dorea Bartonek, LM, 30; Sona Kaczka, CM, 25
Outlook: Revolution have had a rough time of it lately, going seemingly overnight from one of the stronger teams in League 2, to a yo-yo team between the bottom tiers of the SCFA. They'll hope to build on last season's League 3 title, but the difference in class is significant, and they'll need to avoid a slow start to stay up.
Image
City: Vassilian, Algolia
Manager: Kauri Vageva (38 y/o)
Captain: Andri Lalpek, CB, 30
Key Players: Tahvo Zaveri, CM, 34; Prellit Diansyah RW, 27
Outlook: Vassilian gave former Damogran, Hensha, and Wavel AC goalkeeper Vageva his first head management position in hopes he can right the ship. The plummeted from 4th two seasons ago down to 14th last season, and look to be at serious risk of relegation.

Athletic Damogran 4–4 Megabrantid (5–4 AET)
It appeared on paper to be a one-sided bore, with relegated and retooling Athletic facing the powerhouse that is Megabrantid. What we actually got was a thriller of a match that took an extra half-hour to settle. This season's Supercup saw the managerial debuts of both Ucyxi-Slokt Eva and Larry Bryson, as well as supporters first chance to see the Qusma player-manager on the field. For the Firm, it was the greatly anticipated first match for the young Græntfjaller Johanna Álvgeirsdóttir. On the Athletic side, Somogyi and Birdanan would also suit up for the first time. The newcomers for the Furies had quite the impressive showing. Birdanan didn't add her own name to the score sheet, but played the supporting role in a give and go with Paecht to set up their first goal of the match, and added a second assist with a drop pass to set up Pivlic just before halftime. Saotisohi and Ucyxi-Slokt also scored for the Furies, after the Firm came on strong early in the second half with a brace each from Takala and Cant. In extra time, with the sides still even as the hundred and twentieth minute neared, the winner came from a less-likely source, as Ginnias rose head and shoulders above the crowded MSC box for a clean header.

Syneca 2–3 Algolia
Finally the moment arrives! Season 9 kicks off without any of the big, momentous derbies on opening day. The only match with much animosity was the Viltvodle Derby.
The newly promoted Hornets and Borderers each hoping to get a leg up on the other in their quest to stay up. Neither will be satisfied with the scoreless result, but it can be taken as a good early sign for United that their reworked and very *ahem* experienced back line may be up to the task this season. Evela-Dwada and Rynyr-Xertal looked as comfortable as one would expect from such longtime teammates. Across the ball, the relatively young City defense also acquitted itself well, with new acquisition Petrov looking particularly sharp. If these two attacks can't sort themselves out quickly though, it may be a long, long season in Viltvodle.
Canyons 1–2 Golgafrincham
Olympia Arkintoofle 0–4 Hunian

Wavel AC 2–0 Brasta
UFC Flamarion 1–1 Sjerezo
Sivolvia Central 0–2 Porters
Flamarion City 3–1 Wavel Rangers
Han Dold City 0–0 Svetranj
Last season's League 2 champs hosting a Rangers team that's finished top half in League 1 five seasons straight seems like a pretty straightforward call, right? Sure Flamarion City ran roughshod over the third tier, but that's miles away from competing at this level. Someone forgot to tell the Violets about that. Loooking flat-footed and unprepared, Rangers were played off the pitch by a disciplined, hardworking team in purple. Hamalainen was a force in midfield, and Skepian scored in his debut. Jallow was the hero of the day for the home side though, scoring two in the first fifteen minutes to put Rangers decisively on the back foot. The stunned Rangers got a consolation goal from Banchedd in garbage time.

With seven clean sheets on offer, and the majority of them to the tune of one-nil, one result stands out from the rest. No it's not Interblag bodying Syneca, though that was definitely a fun time for the home supporters. It's Algolia paying a visit to Emerald Coast. The league favorites have had a busy international schedule already, getting past Latrobe and Maethoru, and halfway through a playoff tie against Yeaddin in the Champions League. The Emeralds by contrast have played just one competitive match so far this season, a 3-0 shellacking at the hands of Traal. With an unfamiliar goalkeeper, a fresh college graduate on the back line, and a starting striker who didn't play all of last season, the Emeralds are prime candidates for a slow start. The Suntigers, perhaps, were counting on that a little too much when they arrived. It wasn't domination by the Emeralds by any stretch, with Algolia controlling the majority of possession. Sherzi had her team prepared for a counterattack strategy, using their strength along the wings to counter Algolia's centrally-focused tactics. It was one of these attacks that led to the match's first goal. Nazahn pressed the defensive line back with a run to the near post, and Yoltz-Jonto chopped a low cross back behind her to find Hilargi for the shot. Try as Algolia might, they could never manage to find the equalizer. There always seemed to be a green and orange shirt arriving just at the last moment to prevent their chances, and Ingerman did superb work on those shots that did get through. By the skin of their teeth, the Emeralds hung on to their lead until the bitter end and doubled it in stoppage time after the Algolia net was left empty, Ross having come forward for a desperation corner kick.

Sjerezo 1–0 Sivolvia Central
Brasta 2–0 UFC Flamarion
Hensha Rockets 2–0 Wavel AC
Hunian 0–1 Athletic
Canyons 1–1 Olympia Arkintoofle
It's always mildly surprising that Athletic v Hunian isn't more of a rivalry than it is. Sure, Athletic have their two cross-town rivals to focus on, but Hunian are the only other major team in western Algolia, and of a pretty similar stature to Athletic. They haven't made the regular forays up into the top tier that the Furies have but the Seagulls are no pushovers, having been a steady mid-table presence in League 1 the past five seasons. Regardless, Hunian have never really caught on as a serious rival from Athletic's perspective. Accordingly, the Seagulls welcome any chance to face any other Algolian side, in hopes of upsetting clubs who don't really seem to take them seriously. Unfortunately for them, today was not their day. Athletic's possession game was overwhelming. Before the season began, there were doubts about how well new, 28-year-old player manager Ucyxi-Slokt would be able to work with outspoken, 31-year-old team captain Pivlic. Though the sample size is admittedly small so far, the two have begun to forge a partnership in midfield, to the great benefit of their teammates. With Somogyi capably patrolling in front of the back line, Saotisohi has been enjoying the freedom that only comes when everyone else is handling their assignments well. It was one of her crosses that created the only goal of the match. Pavia made the initial save on Paecht's volley, but Birdanan was there to tap in the rebound.

Syneca 2–4 Yassaca
Algolia 1–4 Interblag
Algolia center back Davorka Sevick really had a match to forget as the Suntigers played host to her former club, and could seemingly do nothing right. Fast-improving Interblag dominated the midfield battle, repeatedly setting the table for Autenrieth, who recorded the league's first hat trick of the season. Eisenhauer broke loose once at the other end, but it was far too little too late. Drunau restored the three goal margin shortly thereafter after a series of passes exchanged down the wing with Shervatski. Algolia have now lost two straight heading into a tough matchup with Yassaca, and need to sort themselves out at the back. They've allowed eight goals in three matches, and that simply isn't good enough for a team with title aspirations. Interblag, meanwhile, are well on their way toward following up on last season's success, winning two after a scoreless opener against Sporting. The one stain on the match for the Blues is an injury that forced Racszak to leave the match in the second half. He had to be carted off, and while the team has yet to make any statement, it appears he could be out for some time.

Han Dold City 0–1 Porters
Svetranj 0–0 Wavel Rangers
Han Dold City seem at somewhat of a loss as to where their goalscoring is going to come from now that Damnagoras is gone. For the second time in three matches they've been held scoreless, this time in an ugly home loss to Porters. The Wolfpack's midfield has been able to hold possession well enough, but they haven't worked out how to bring Krastev in seamlessly yet, and the connection between that midfield possession and creating clear-cut chances just isn't there right now. Credit has to be given in this case to the Porters back line, who executed to perfection. Defensive mid Manwys was also a serious impediment, often marking Krastev closely and effectively eliminating her as a passing option. HDC also need better from their fullbacks, as Tuvas and Maghnuis were non-factors in the attack, and could have taken a lot of pressure off the central players. For Porters, Ubina and Tarcha looked dangerous, and it was a pass from the former to the latter that set up the winning goal.

Chalesm have surely had this date circled on their calendar for some time. In addition to being a big local derby, the match against Megabrantid was a chance to make a statement against the two-time defending champions that yes, Chalesm do belong in conversations about title contenders for this season. This is all the more true after the Blues were crushed in the Brantid Derby last week. In the end, it perhaps wasn't the emphatic win they'd dreamed of, but a decent away draw nonetheless. Hocij scored her first of the season to put the visitors ahead midway through the first half. Bedesnjak's drop pass to the onrushing left mid was perfectly weighted. For Megabrantid, who have struggled mightily to find their stride this season, it was the captain who averted disaster late. Afforded too much space in the attacking third, he fired from long range with a curler that caught Mustahil leaning the wrong way. Bryson will no doubt have some uncomfortable conversations with the press, and with the club's board if he can't pull his side together and put something in the win column soon.

Canyons and Wavel AC met today in what was once thought of as Han Dold State's "lesser" matchup. Rangers and HDCFC were regarded as the major clubs, Wavel and Canyons less regarded. It might still be true in the case of Canyons, who have spent much of the past several seasons in the third tier, but Wavel AC have put that notion to rest in their case, frequently finishing above both Rangers and HDC. The littlest sibling had the last laugh today though, as swarming defense combined with wasteful shooting by the Evergreens. The result was a scoreless match all the way down to the final few minutes, when who but Gethin Powell should break the tie, slipping between Callaigh and Baeli to get a toe to the end of a diagonal ball from Arkhipov, just poking it past Riszner.

Syneca and Brantisvogan are each clubs hell-bent on improving from lower-half performances last season, though for different reasons. Branstivogan fans feel they've put in their time during this rebuild, and they'd like to start seeing some results thank you very much. For Syneca, last seasons must have felt like the magic had worn off, and they're hoping against hope this season will see it return, proving a rebuild of their own to be unnecessary. Both have had mixed results thus far this season, and were looking to build momentum against another side perhaps a bit down on its luck. Where these two might finish is still anyone's guess at this point, but today it was the Sea Lions who triumphed. Surely feeling the pressure after so many high profile, and high dollar transfers in recent years, for to moment, they delivered. Malicki played like the midfield maestro the club initially billed him as, and Ruoho looked like his old self for a moment. As usual for the Sea Lions, it was Finnan pulling the trigger, and his brace before halftime put them in control of the match, as Brantisvogan had no choice but to press forward. With a much younger side, perhaps lacking some of the poise that comes with experience, the Red Flash found it difficult to make headway, and went down by three on a goal from Ozog, who collected a low cross from Kazarov that somehow trickled all the way through everyone else. A rare goal by Intov-Helek, making a late run from the corner of the box, helped Brantisvoga save a little face, but it's clear that Gannon still has a fair amount of work to do if she's going to guide them back into the top half.

The showdown of southeast Molvania was a thrilling affair, as Druzhina met Boyars on the field at Svetranj. Ok, so maybe it wasn't as dramatic as an actual battle, but to Svetranj, newly returned from League 2, it was an important match to win. And win they did. As expected by many, this team's attack has been driven by its two wing midfielders, both of whom have Superleague experience. Sjerezo drew first blood though, with Cervlke feeding Pelsko for a flick on to Duewel that Zavisza did not anticipate. The former Lublova man coolly chipped Ivanov to put the Boyars up one. Svetranj would even the score before the half. Kroes cut a short, low cross back for Soucek, who fired with her first touch, beating Dziwulski at the near post. The winner came late, when Tavoc sent Ketur sprawling with a neat Cruyff turn before sending a perfect curler across Dziwulski and in.

Damogran have quietly gotten off to a solid start in the league, with good wins over Megabrantid, Brantisvogan, and Traal. The matchday three loss to Royals hurts a lot, considering the animosity present in that derby, but ten points from five matches is still pretty good. They added to that total today with a thorough dismantling of Arkintoofle. The Sharks looked completely out of their depth, despite getting an early goal from Vinogradov after a well-timed ball forward from Korrapati caught the defense by surprise, sending the young striker in alone against Russell, who had a few words with Moreland and Longstreet immediately thereafter. To their credit, the Damogran back line made the necessary adjustments, and Russell had very little work to do for the remainder of the half. The same could not be said for Sivitri at the other end. The Eagles soon settled into a rhythm, the trio of D'Amico, Gyôrffy, and Starosta moving the ball almost at will. The chances soon began to pile up, and despite the fact Akkeren and Klaniczay aren't anyone's idea of the best striker duo in the league, given so many tries at goal, it was only a matter of time before they found the back of the net. The final tally came out, one for Akkeren, one for Gyôrffy, and two for Starosta.

Olympia and UFC have been two of the teams most difficult to pin down, defined by their inconsistency more than anything else. Both have had trips up to the Superleague, and had to stave of relegation to League 2, sometimes in consecutive seasons. Olympia, who may finally be putting the irresponsible, badly-behaved, party team image behind them, put together a pretty solid all around performance, led by the captain, Borkowski. He scored two of their goals, and assisted on the third, threading a needled between Bendere and Salvala to send Heltain in alone against Siriane. If anyone apart from manager Morna Korenak can be credited for Olympia's clean up, its probably Borkowski. He joined this team while they were at the absolute nadir of their debauchery, assumed the mantle of the captaincy, and played through some seriously lean years. He's never been anything but a professional, hard-working captain who leads his teammates by example, and Olympia are lucky to have him. However you feel about Olympia as a club, it's good for Confederate football generally that they're back on the right track, and that young players like Afmadu and Gerwalt have this kind of role model and mentor.

Yassaca 2–1 Viltvodle City
After a slowish start of two draws against teams they were fully expected to beat, Yassaca won three out of four matches heading into today's matchup at home with Viltvodle City. It's another team they really should be beating if they hope to finally claim the league title. While they found a way to take full points in the end, it wasn't pretty. They looked fairly comfortable early on, with the midfield diamond keeping the ball fairly well, and Ødegaard making some promising runs, though there was clearly some fine tuning necessary before they'd be able to break though the defense. That fine tuning never seemed to quite be complete though, and the service forward to the strikers remained wasteful far longer than it should have. The Tigers did manage to take the lead before halftime, but it was more a result of Ødegaard's individual effort in backtracking to collect the ball, then taking on both Higon and Brutsky before firing past both the left foot of Orzhova and the hands of Kzocovsky. While the midfield was still out of sorts, Yassaca's supporters could take comfort that the Vanorian striker looked worth every penny the club spent on him. The second half got off to a sour start for the home side though, as Djanetic's quick run forward and switch of play right off the restart caught the defense off-balance, and Thiel cut inside before shooting near post for the equalizer. Melkum mixed things up a bit, bringin on Vatanian in place of Stern, and Safarov for Achthoven. This eventually had the desired effect, as the teenager's fresh legs on the wing opened up space in the center and Vatanian was able to draw two defenders to her before laying it off to Rallyton for a thundering shot, and the winner.

Maybe it's time for the Shudet era at Central to end. The twin brothers have commanded the defense for the Budgies for years now, and while the team has never been bad, they've never really been good either. Case in point: todays performance hosting Olympia. There was nothing particularly awful about their play, it just wasn't enough. The defense was solid for most of the match, but cracked when it was needed most, defending a draw late on. Enesca was able to slip the marking of Faran Shudet and head home the winner on a corner kick just before stoppage time. It's hard to make these kinds of drastic decisions when a team isn't really bad, but to be honest, Central need a change if they want to be anything more than a below average second tier team. To be honest, Kabagenyi probably needs to move on at manager too. New manager, new captain, new culture is what's needed here.

Lublova in a scoreless draw with Sporting is a result that will please no one invovled. Both teams like to play a fluid, creative, attacking style, and neither was able to execute it at all today. Oh yes, yes, credit where it's due. Both back lines played well, and the goalkeepers were solid. Drenel and Shimski both are due praise for some truly impressive saves to preserve their clean sheets. It shouldn't really have been down to that though. Neither team passed or held possession very well. It seemed both passed as often to their opponents as their teammates. For Lublova, the bright spot is the play of young center back Szimon, who combined with McWilliams to adeptly shut down the always dangerous Vang.

For up and down Brasta, it's up again this week, though not too far up. They eke out a one goal victory over visiting Porters, and once again have more wins than losses for the season. Perhaps some inconsistency is to be expected from such a young roster, despite its high level of talent. Depleted of some of its most experienced players after being relegated, Brasta's starting 11 have an average age of just 25 years, 166 days, a figure that would be considerably lower without 32-year-old outliers Helder and Tambura. The Buccaneers' board, appropriately, has been patient with Cisneros thus far, but make no mistake, if he fails to earn promotion, that could be the end of his time in Brasta. The match itself was a showcase of the club's two remaining foreigh players, both on the right side of the formation. Ralox-Relaf and Foray were both successfully persuaded to stay after last season, and as a result Brasta's hopes for the future remain, as without two of its most promising future leaders, the club likely would have had to begin rebuilding in earnest, and commit to a longer stay in the second tier. Foray was instrumental in the match's only goal, dribbling around Rautio before picking out Krond on a run into the box. The center mid slotted the ball neatly into the far corner.

Traal have had a mixed bag so far this season, generally beating the teams you'd expect and losing to those you'd expect as well, with a regretable scoreless draw against V United thrown in for good measure. Ajao has not provided the boost to goalscoring the club had hoped for, at least not yet. The defense has been solid as usual, but that's not enough if you can't find a way to score yourself. Today continued that trend. The Oilers got one goal in the first half on a neat play by Vilhajalmsson. Dribbling into the corner of the box, she stared down a double-covered Ajao before passing across her body to Neptune. The right winger looked nearly as surprised as the defense, but was quick enough on her feet to settle the ball and shoot before Ross could react and get in position for a save. Ajao serving as a distraction rather than a goalscoring threat on the play was perhaps emblematic of his time in Traal so far. Algolia struck back almost immediately. Rebljeten recceived a pass forward in stride from Presic, and then played a give and go with Eisenhauer at the edge of the box to open space. Kim, who has boatloads of potential but still very little experience, wasn't quick enough to react and close him down, and his shot would've beat any keeper in the world. After the break, though the defense allowed very few chances, it always seemed like merely a matter of when, not if Algolia would score. No sooner did O Connaíl or Arnold gain control than it seemed Yunal-Julad was right there to relieve them of the ball and feed it back to the Suntigers' attackers to start another buildup. In the end, predictably, it was Eisenhauer with the winner, again on a feed from Presic, who played particularly well today. Despite the discussion of Traal's struggles in the attack, they still find themselves in better shape than Algolia, who earn just their third victory of the season, and look nothing like the title contender they were supposed to be.

What can really be said about Golgafrincham? Unless you're a fan, they're areally forgettable team. Not particularly good, and projected for a finish among the relegation candidates, with their best players being two of those who just joined this season. Their mediocrity was on full display today as they were shutout by another lackluster side in UFC. The Lions very nearly contrived to give away a point on their own ground. A late run and cross from Deaciuc to Gribbler saved them from that indignity, but the fact Golgafrincham couldn't even manage that speaks volumes. Why did we choose this match to cover again? Oh right, every team has to have at least one.

Royals have been off to a solid start this season, and today's clash with league-leading Yassaca was a big test of their form. Unfortunately for Royals, in this clash of defensive, possession-based tactics, the Tigers proved the better side, racking up their seventh win of the young season. Royals still remain in third on goal differential though, as the Sharks held the Sea Lions to a draw in Arkintoofle, and Emerald Coast upset Brantisvogan's hot streak. As you'd expect, the match was a cagey affair, with neither team coming out of the gate too hot, nor committing too many players forward. Both goalkeepers were tested occasionally though. Mevlya found the space for a quick shot that just kissed the top of the bar, though Ekewakan would argue he would've made the save had it been on target. At the other end, Rallyton tried several times from distance, but couldn't seem to find the range. It took a controversial call from the referee to separate the two teams, as Dalso made a tackle on Verhulst just at the edge of the box. Shirts both navy and white quickly surrounded the referee, whose initial signal had been for a penalty. Video review upheld the call, and Ødegaard smashed the ball past Zarek.

The closeness at the top of this league is reaching ridiculous levels. Brasta are out alone at the front, but behind them with sixteen points are the surprising Flamarion City side, who clearly don't care at all where they're "supposed" to finish. Right on their heels are five, yes five teams all with fifteen points. Leading that pack on the strength of their goal differential are Hunian, and if they can continue to play like they did today, they might need to be added to the list of promotion contenders. Their 3-0 win over Porters was a complete effort in all areas of the game. Prada and Clery held possession well in midfield, feeding Hjort for two goals, and Arzun for another. The back line smothered any attempted by Porters to climb back into the match, and Pavia made the few saves required of her to keep the clean sheet. Crowning the Seagulls as favorites for the playoff would definitely be premature. Let's keep in mind that just four points separate 2nd from 12th right now, and only the three teams all the way down in the drop zone look to be in really bad shape.

Interblag 1–4 Lublova Reds

Brantisvogan 1–4 Megabrantid
The Brantid and Molvanian derbies were on the schedule today, and both matches ended up in absolute disaster for the home team. Brantisvogan and Interblag have both been pushing into the top half, hoping to mount a challenge for IFCF spots at the end of the season, and both enjoyed a narrow lead on their rivals coming into the week. No longer. Lublova and Megabrantid each came out swinging, and the two matches finished with identical 1-4 margins. In Brantisvogan, the word of the day was possession. The Firm dominated control of the ball in midfield, and left very little space for their opponents to accomplish anything. Álgeirsdóttir contributed her first goal for the club early in the second half, adding to the brace already notched by Gelan-Yivix in the first. Akkaynak looked to start a rally with a score of her own, smashed past Xynat-Evela with pure power in the 61st. That hope was quickly snuffed out though by a header from Gayle just a few minutes later. In Lutenblag, the match was much more even by possession, but the Reds always seemed to find a way to stop the Blues at the crucial moment. The Blues had no such luck putting the brakes on the Reds, who showed a hint of what they might look like if Matthews's team-building program all goes to plan. The right side triangle of Peikola, Siegel, and Wojewodka utterly confounded Vodsavo and Vrboska, neither of whom is a bad defender by any stretch of the imagination. The three Reds each scored one goal, pulling the defense apart with their quick passing.

Brasta 3–0 Hensha Rockets
Nil to one was the score of the day today, with five of eight matches ending up that way. In the Flamarion Derby, City missed the memo that the away team was supposed to win, and knocked off UFC One to Nil while Rangers messed everything up with an admittedly spectacular late equalizer. Idwal, who had replaced Borinn earlier in the second half, let fly from nearly thirty yards out, utterly surprising Scarzam. Finaly, Brasta and Rockets got it really, really wrong, with Foray, Tambura, and Musieri each knocking one in to propel the Buccaneers to the day's most dominant win.

Viltvodle United 1–0 Syneca
Chalesm 1–0 Sporting Jaglan
A big upset this week as Viltvodle United knocked off Syneca. The result saw the Sea Lions slip from fifth to seventh, while United continued their slow climb out of the basement. For the Hornets, it was not the prettiest match they've ever played, but three points is three points. Whether you pile up goals from beautiful, fluid attacking movement, or eke out one on a frantic series of rebounds inside the box doesn't really matter in the end. It was the latter case today though. Mortenson parried away Rynyr-Xertal's header off a 64th-minute corner, but only as far as Bonartt. She in turn scuffed her shot, which was blocked by Brown. The Flavovespian didn't get clean contact on his attempted clearance though, and Pinder pounced to toe-poke the ball past Mortenson, who had only just gotten back to his feet. A one-goal result early in the season doesn't spell certain doom for Syneca any more than its spells salvation for United, but it's certainly a worrying sign for the Sea Lions, and a breath of hope for the Hornets.

Sivolvia Central 2–0 Flamarion City
Han Dold City, considered by most season previews to be among the better teams in the league, are having a rough time. They've scraped together a modest point total, and their defense has been pretty strong, but the attack has completely dried up, with just eight goals through twelve matches. We all knew there would be a learning curve for this team with the departure of Damnagoras, but the difference has been like night and day. UFC aren't anyone's idea of a powerhouse, but they looked by far the more dangerous side today, and the 2-1 result belies the true nature of things. The only consolation for the Wolfpack was a garbage time goal by Jens that didn't leave enough time for even another shot, let alone an equalizer.

Sporting are really having a terrible start to the season. Just two matches from the halfway point and they don't have a win to their name yet. For the board, todays nil to four embarrasment at home to their closest rival was the last straw, and Ensio Kedar is out. The club is reportedly considering a mid-season hire, but for the time being has announced that Pobuda and Kebrata will share management duties in a caretaker capacity. As for the match itself, it went exactly as you'd guess based on the scoreline. The Emeralds were in firm control throughout. The Yolz-Jonto to Nazahn connection was seemingly unstoppable, as the Qusma right mid assisted on both of Nazahn's goals.

Today's Han Wavel Derby continued the recent trend in League 1 of away teams dominating their hosts. The Evergreens and Rangers have been nearly impossible to separate over recent seasons, with Wavel AC enjoying just the slightest edge over their rivals. They had more than a slight edge today though, with Saissond and Alardan both unavailable for Rangers due to injury. Idwal and Harinn did their best in relief duty, but the difference in experience was obvious, and Dahl, Byock, and Craink were in firm control of the midfield. The Rangers' back line held up admirably under the siege, but it was only a matter of time. Dahl scored a goal and fed Hendry for another before the half, and Utkin put the dagger in not long after the restart.

Yassaca's takedown of Damogran reads like an affirmation of purpose. That purpose being to win the league. The Tigers and Eagles entered the week at first and third respectively, with the latter poised to narrow the gap with a good result. Instead Yassaca take full points, and combined with Royals loss in Vassilian, the result widens the gap against both of their closest pursuers. Much of the story so far this season has been about the arrival of dominating striker Ødegaard, but today it was Verhulst's time to shine again. With the Vanorian very much the focus of the Eagles' defense, Verhulst was consistently able to find space to work with. While the Yassaca back line clamped down on Damogran's strikers, she scored one goal, and assisted Stern on the second.

Hunian have been quietly having a very strong start to the season, and continued that today in Golgafrincham. Clery has made a pretty strong case thus far that HDC probably should've kept him around. He was ever-present today for the Seagulls, running tirelessly back and forth between the boxes, winning the ball back and moving it up the field to the wings and forwards. Hjort and Yarritu notched the goals for the visitors, demonstrating once again that they still have something to contribute even in their mid-thirties.

We've reached the halfway point, and storylines abound, some expected, some surprising. Yassaca leading the league is not a shock. The Tigers leading by six points over Megabrantid and Damogran is somewhat unexpected though, as is the absence of Algolia from that picture. The Suntigers are languishing far down the table in ninth, just behind Viltvodle United. Yes, newly promoted Viltvodle United have ridden a string of wins all the way up into the top half of the league, pausing their rise only this week when they ran into Yassaca. Up next, they have another chance to pick up points in the Viltvodle Derby, where they'll meet fifteenth placed City, who would be worst in the league if not for the incredible run of bad form that has plagued Sporting. Halfway through the season and not a single win. A few weeks ago it was Ensio Kedar given his marching orders. Now, his former assistants and caretaker successors follow him out the door. Who will be leading the Rebels from the sideline in a week's time is anyone's guess. At Syneca, Titor Hlinka is feeling his own seat beginning to heat up, as the Sea Lions have tumbled six places in the standings over their past ten matches. If he can't start reversing that trend soon, he might very well be the next on the chopping block. Chalesm's Delval Kotsyubov will also be feeling none too secure in his position, as the Blues find themselves one spot behind Syneca. Each club look further and further removed from their respective title runs with each passing season. At the other end of the job security spectrum, Bess Gannon and Seneca Matthews each have to be feeling some satisfaction, at least for the moment. Gannon's Red Flash and Matthews's Reds sit fifth and sixth at present, far above where most thought they would be.

It was a real treat for League 1 fans to mark the halfway point of the season, as Athletic visited Brasta in a clash between the top two. The resurgent Furies had closed to within one point of the Bucccaneers last week, crushing Sjerezo as Brasta lost away to Olympia. The match was largely decided on the wings, with the central midfielders laregely cancelling each other out. Saotisohi and Ucyxi-Slokt were consistently able to out-compete Foray and Tambura, and the Brasta back three found themselves facing numbers without enough support from their midfield. The first goal for the visitors came just after the half, with Saotisohi dancing around Ralox-Relaf and swung an arcing cross in to meet the head of Paecht. Brasta tightened up after that, to their credit, but were unable to find the equalizer. Heron was sharp, but the Furies' back line deserves particular praise for limiting the majority of chances to the outside, denying any clear-cut scoring chance. Kahun doubling the lead with about ten to play felt like a coffin nail, as Brasta hadn't had a likely-looking shot in a while.

This week saw another first for the season: Sporting have won a match. Before we get to that though, the Rebels' big mid-week news should be addressed. Having unceremoniously sacked both caretaker managers just a couple weeks after giving Ensio Kedar the boot, the team was in serious turmoil, with no clear successor for the job. Wasting very little time (one suspects they may have been in talks even before cutting Pobuda and Kebrata loose), The club announced that Devane Miller, most recently of Olympique de Rimouski, will take over management duties, effective immediately. The Quebecois had resigned after four seasons of modest success with Olympique. The team had one Coupe du ROi and one IFCF appearance during his tenure. While it's going to take a titanic effort to turn this season around and avoid relegation, the team took an important step today with their first victory. For the first time in recent memory, the Rebels looked energized, and moved the ball with purpose and decisiveness. Interblag, perhaps overlooking their downtrodden opponents, could never get much going in the attack, and were repeatedly gashed open by Vang's aggressive runs. Leading to one goal for the Squornshelan sensation, and another for Romano. At the final whistle, the Rebels surrounded their new manager, and carried him off the field on their shoulders. They have a long way to go, certainly, but there is life now in central Jaglan.

Flamarion City seem to be reverting to the kind of form that was expected of them. They made a valiant go of it, but getting pounded 4-1 by Rangers is much more in line with predictions than their 3-1 victory back in matchday 1. The Rangers midfield , still missing Alardan, was buoyed by the return of their captain Saissond. It was Dziubla's day to truly shine though, as the journeyman striker scored twice, and assisted on Saissond's goal late. Never the greatest technician in the league, Dziubla was seemingly always in the right place at exactly the right time today, eluding all attempts to mark him. For his second goal in particular, it appeared that Makela had completely lost track of him, and a quick through ball forward from Yndel sent him in alone against Povarnin. As is becoming unfortunately common, the only real bright spot for Flamarion City was the play of Hamalainen, who was easily their best player, and served up a goal on a platter to Jallow.

Lublova Reds 2–0 Traal Athletics
Traal are always tough to figure out. Is their lack of scoring an actual problem, or are things actually going as planned in Daror's conservative tactics? The jury is out still on their season as a whole, with Ajao a definite disappointment thus far, but the young center backs Marko and Kim coming along nicely under the tutelage of Oleb. This week's match in isolation though, was unambiguously bad. Paying a visit to red-hot Lublova, the Oilers were just about played off the field. Their outnumbered attackers simply weren't able to create the chances they needed. Possession may have been roughly even, but Lublova had far more of theirs proportionally in the attacking third. That kind of time spent in high-danger areas will eventually translate into goals even against the tenacious Traal defense. After a scoreless first, with the fresh legs of Nedeljkovic added to the equation, the Reds broke through for two goals in quick succession with Ashbrown and then Peikola pulling the trigger. Traal regained their composure and defensive shape afterward, but the damage had been done, and their inability to challenge Drenel persisted.

While indecisive in the end, Central versus Sjerezo was likely the most entertaining match of the day, featuring something for everyone. Two mid-table teams fighting for an advantage in chasing down the promotion candidates. Controversial bookings, a penalty shout, heroic saves and a goal of the season candidate. Central were first on the board, coming out of the gate hot and pressing relentlessly until Rigard was able to blast one past Dziwulski from the corner of the box. They continued more or less where they left off after the ensuing kickoff until the first bit of controversy. Madvig, rising to challenge for a header on a corner kick, bowled over Dziwulski. Despite video replay appearing to show very clearly that the collision was unintentional, the official chose to caution Madvig.

Sjerezo took some momentum from this, and just before the half, Cervlke found the equalizer with a quick turn and shot at the edge of the box. Pelsko very nearly doubled their tally in stoppage time, but Shudet made an incredible reflex save to deny what looked like a sure goal. The Budgies were pressing again to open the second, and retook the lead in the 55th on a tap in by Ekmek after Dziwulski failed to punch a corner kick clear. They appeared to have opened the lead to two shortly thereafter, but Madvig was ruled offside. Feeling pretty hard doen by at this point, the striker made his feelings a bit to clearly known to the referee, who showed him a second yellow card. With Central now on the back foot, Sjerezo surged forward, launching shot after shot at Shudet, who proved equal to everything they could throw at him. Nearly everything. Agnieska Kemereov, dribbling down the right flank chose, inexplicably, unwisely, to shoot from 40 yards out. Putting every ounce of power behind the shot, she somehow kept it down. Twenty thousand pairs of eyes watched it soar toward the goal, none larger than Shudet's. The ball knuckled and twisted in midair, struck the near post, and rebounded into the back of the net.

After a very strong first half of the season, Damogran have cooled off considerably of late. Today's close loss in Jaglan leaves them on a three-match skid, and sees them slide into the bottom half of an extremely close and competitive middle of the pack. One of the recent losses is understandable, though they'd have liked to put up a much better fight at home than they did, getting pounded 0-3 by Megabrantid. Losing to Royals though, and to Brantisvogan back in matchday 16 are much greater setbacks. Losing to the teams that have turned out to be your biggest competition to make the Challengers' Cup is just shooting yourself in the foot. If there's any takeaway to build on, it's that they scored their first goal in three matches, a thumping shot from the edge of the box by Fitzgerald. It evened the score after Tatham's perfectly weighted cross found Kaidanov late in the first half. Unfortunately for the Eagles, they continued to have trouble defending the wings. Late in the second, it was Tatham again driving the ball deep into the attacking third. She switched play with a long arcing ball to Kadec, and the Molvanian found Ridenton at the top of the box with just enough space for a shot. Russell was able to get one hand to it, but only succeeded in tipping it closer to the post as it went in. Even after this result, the latest in a string of disappointments for the Eagles, they remain only four points out of an IFCF spot despite being all the way down in tenth. Even Syneca behind them in eleventh aren't entirely out of the picture, sitting six points out of fifth. It's certainly shaping up to be a very interesting final third of the season.

Let's not speak too soon, but Olympia might just be a real footbal team again, instead of a meme in navy and orange kits. Today's draw with Golgafrincham isn't the prettiest result, true, but you have to respect how they arrived at it. The Archers were in uncharacteristically good form, and with 41,000 screaming fans in attendence, they have one of the more hostile venues to play at in League 1. They held possession for much of the first half, their midfield outworking Olympia's at the point of attack. Katona, making a run forward from his holding position, found both power and placement with his 36th minute shot, and it beat Scarzam cleanly. Not a good look to be shown up for 45 minutes by a bottom half team when you have dreams of promotion, but Olympia took it in stride, came out in the second, and proceeded to push Golgafrincham back and forth across their own field, 41,000 fans and all. Irwinn, playing in relief of Kokko while she nurses a sore hamstring, got the equalizer almost immediately after the restart. Only bad luck and some fingertip saves by Garmon prevented Olympia from taking full points home.

Sporting were riding a three match unbeaten streak into the week and have stretched that to four in spectacular fashion. Hosting Brantisvogan, who have looked greatly improved over recent seasons thus far, the Rebels piled up six goals in by far their most impressive performance of the season. The rout was highlighted by a hat trick from Vang, with scoring contributions also coming from Rakiric, Brighton, and Rebsch. Life under Miller seems to be suiting the Rebels thus far, and while this unbeaten run is sure to end sooner or later, it's impressive the way they've hauled themselves up into 14th, out of automatic relegation position. In Damogran, meanwhile, Algolia recorded a real statement of a win against Yassaca, knocking the league leaders off their pedestal, and climbing into IFCF position at the same time. The loss for the Tigers allowed Lublova and Megabrantid, each of which recorded big wins on the road, to climb into first and second respectively.

I think Svetranj might actually be bad. Two season ago, everyone was shocked by their relegation. Last season, everyone assumed, correctly as it turned out, that they'd be headed back upon their first try. This season everyone expected they'd once again be a mid-table League 1 side. Wrong. Today, they scored their eighth goal in nineteen matches, and earned their eleventh point. They have a single win in that span of time. Why are they so bad? This team is much better than last season's on paper, making big additions on the wings with Tavoc and Kroes. There are other good players on this roster too. Bootsma, Soucek, Franjic, Shokta. All of them are better than they've been so far. It is therefore baffling that Hajdar Kaczmarek still has a job. Svetranj hired him after he as sacked by Sjerezo for leading them to an abysmal start that would see them relegated. Why hire him in the first place? He may have been in vogue after winning promotion, but come on, it's League 2. And they weren't even promoted directly. If this club can't pull the trigger on sacking a manager who makes them worse, they're doomed.

The season is two thirds done, and almost nothing has been clarified. Only nine points separate Megabrantid and Yassaca at the top from Syneca down in 11th. The Firm lead the Tigers only by virtue of their goal differential. Both sides have been knocking in goals on the regular, but Megabrantid, at nearly two goals per game, lead the entire league in that category. Their scoring has been distributed across the attack, with Gelan-Yivix and Takala leading the way, but healthy contributions from the other strikers and midfielders. For Yassaca it's been more top-heavy. Case in point: todays victory over Interblag, featuring two goals from Ødegaard and one from Rallyton. Together with Verhulst and Stern, four players have accounted for 90% of the Tigers scoring.

Algolia, after their terrible start, have clawed their way back up into fourth, and look set to begin the title challenge that was expected of them. Ahead of them, Lublova have been sensational in this middle third of the season. The attack is firing on all cylinders, and they were briefly on top of the tabel before falling to Damogran at home today, without the overwhelming star power at striker that the other top four can boast, it's been more of a midfield effort from the Reds, with Peikola, Ashbrown, and Siegel piling up assists. Royals are about where you'd have expected, just at the edge of the IFCF picture, but Brantisvogan's presence here is a definite surprise. When they lose they lose big, as their terrible goals against total attests, but they've been finding a way to win the close ones more often than not, even with one of the least-experienced first teams in the league. Akkaynak in particular has been excellent for the Red Flash.

Traal are well, Traal. They haven't scored much, they haven't conceded much, tied for best defense in the league with Yassa . . . wait a second. Can this be real? Viltvodle United, currently sitting tenth rather than down in the drop zone where most expected them, have out-Traaled Traal. With just 18 goals scored and 15 conceded, they have an undisputed claim to simultaneously be the league's most boring team, and one of its most interesting. Their addition of three new players in the defensive half is clearly paying dividends, and even if their form falls off over the next ten, the points they've squirreled away might be enough to keep them safe. This performance is definitely a feather in Lynul-Zorno's cap.

Chalesm and Syneca are having mediocre years once again, and may need to consider the possibility that they are mediocre clubs that had one magical run, rather than genuine perennial contenders. From Syneca it's a big step down to Emerald Coast, the first of the teams that seem certain to finish bottom half. The seven point gap to eighth isn't insurmountable, but the Emeralds have really struggled to string good results together, and you can't make that kind of progress when you're earning 0 points every other match. Some upgrades next offseason, particularly on the left side of the attack, seem imperative if this team wants to keep improving.

Interblag, meanwhile, have regressed hard from last season's result, and the alarming part is, it's not clear exactly why. Racszak's absence hasn't helped things, but this team really shouldn't have 12 losses. If they can't start earning at least one point more frequently, they're going to find themselves mired in the heated relegation race being contested by Sporting and Arkintoofle. For a while it looked all but certain that Sporting would go straight down, but the arrival of Devane Miller has given them new life, and the Sharks now have a fight on their hands to stay out of fifteenth. As for Viltvodle City, the less said of them the better. They didn't do enough to prepare their roster for the higher level of competition, and they're reaping the inevitable result now.

Brasta 3–1 Han Dold City
Sjerezo 3–0 Svetranj
Porters 3–1 Wavel Rangers
Athletic and Brasta are in firm control of the league, and any speculation about Ucyxi-Slokt having a difficult time as the first player-manager in SCFA history has been put firmly to rest. They've clearly had a great impact on the team, both on and off the field. Their working relationship with the players appears solid, and there's no reason to think they won't qualify directly for promotion. Brasta have been a little shakier here and there, but still look like the promotion favorite we expected. Oddly though, Brasta are tied for the league lead in scoring with Olympia and Sjerezo. Attack by committee is working for them, despite the lack of a bona fide star at striker.

One surprising club this season so far has been Rangers. They are pretty far below their expected position, and while they have time to recover, they don't have time to waste. Down the road in Han Dold City is where the real shock is to be found. The Wolfpack are on track for relegation, and just look inexplicably terrible. If they won every match for the rest of the season, Athletic and Brasta would need just four wins each to still be assured of finished ahead of them. Their biggest problem right now is that they cant. fucking. score. They're tied for worst scoring in the league if you don't count Svetranj, and you really shouldn't because eight goals in twenty matches is absurd and not worth measuring yourself against. Kasun and Zduncyk have been invisible. Krastev has been useless. The much vaunted trio of Maghnuis, Jens, and Somhair have been decent at controlling possession, but wouldn't know a through ball if it came up and hit them in the face. Scordo has got to come up with something. A formation change, giving the kids some playing time, trust falls, anything. If the Wolfpack are relegated the blood will be ankle deep.

SCFA Season 9 Results

Yassaca 2–2 Emerald Coast
Interblag 1–1 Viltvodle City
Algolia 1–3 Brantisvogan
Syneca 1–0 Megabrantid
Sporting Jaglan 0–2 Jaglan Royals
Chalesm 0–1 Traal Athletics
Viltvodle United 1–1 Lublova Reds
Damogran 0–0 Arkintoofle United
A home draw with sputtering Emerald Coast is not the result the Tigers would have liked, but coupled with the Firm's loss to Syneca, it's enough to put them back on top of the league. The entire top 5, in fact, suffered setbacks today, with Algolia soundly beaten at home by Brantisvogan, and both Lublova and Damogran settling for draws against inferior opposition. Royals were the beneficiaries, winning the Jaglan Derby as the Rebels have come a bit back down to earth after their surge of good form following Miller's arrival. While he remains diplomatically optimistic in his pressers, Miller has to be concerned about the prospect of relegation, though one supposes he wouldn't have taken the job if he weren't prepared to face that risk. In any case, Royals shut his team down pretty ably, assigning Nagant to shadow Vang all afternoon long. Meanwhile, Kadec and Tatham slashed through the Rebels' back line repeatedly, with the Chromatik scoring one goal, and Kadec dishing up another for Mevlya to finish. The win puts Royals back into the IFCF picture, along with Brantisvogan just behind them. The Red Flash, as aforementioned, strolled into Albrechtsson Park and punched the Suntigers square in the mouth. Akkaynak continues her breakout season, along with her companions in the attack, McConnaugh and Hierwen. Koppuri has been quieter on the goalscoring front, but important in distribution.

Thus ends one of the more unremarkable International domestic seasons for the SCFA. With a whimper. The FFI and losing to teams from Zwangzug; name a more iconic duo.

Megabrantid 3–3 Algolia
Brantisvogan 2–1 Interblag
Viltvodle City 0–2 Yassaca
Dream results for Yassaca, as only Royals and Damogran win in the chasing pack. Megabrantid and Algolia tripped each other up in an immensely entertaining match that nonetheless failed to do either club much good in the standings. The midfield battle was constant, and swung back and forth all evening, with first one side, then the other taking the advantage. Stolp had a particularly strong showing for the visitors, along with Yunal-Julad, but so did Álvgeirsdóttir and Dast, playing in relief of Bradshaw, who was nursing a bruised thigh picked up last match, but is expected to be back next week for a crucial matchup against Royals. Neither Xynat-Evela nor Ross exactly looked their best, but several of the shots would have required really amazing saves to keep out. In particular, Eisenhauer got in behind the defense for the final Suntigers goal, and Xynat-Evela would have needed to be a mind reader to start their dive soon enough to get a hand to her shot. Lublova's attack, by contrast fell completely flat at home, and they left two points out on the field against Chalesm. It wasn't a terrible performance, they kept possession well, and kept Lafayette and Hocij well under control, limiting their space. At the other end though, they were unable to find the breakthrough needed, though one should remember that despite their recent struggles, Chalesm still have an excellent back line anchored by former defender of the seaon, Picard, and backstopped by a pretty solid shot-stopper in Mustahil. Still, if this Reds team is going to continue with this kind of performance, Matthews may need to keep tinkering with the attack a bit more.

Viltvodle United 1–0 Damogran
Viltvodle United continue to not go away. The past two weeks they hung around and picked up a couple points from draws, but the more results like todays happen, the harder it is to write off their success to simply being overlooked by teams further up the table. Indeed there are fewer of those teams than anyone really expected, as the Hornets sit in ninth, just two points behind their latest victims. Damogran have been a really excellent team at times this season, but at other times they really haven't. That inconsistency is going to cost them a chance at returning to the IFCF after finally making it last season only to be bounced in the second prelim. It may be time to reevaluate the choices they've made at striker this off-season, as far too many of their bad matches have hinged on an inability to finish their chances. Akkeren and Klaniczay could take a lesson from Prantist at the other end. The United striker didn't get as many looks at goal as they did, but when Nurmela threaded a cross through to her, she put her boot to it without hesitation and left Russell standing.

A huge, momentous win for Yassaca, shutting out the defending champs at home to open up a six point lead over the Firm in third. Lublova kept pace with them though, two points back, and without something drastic happening, it appears the hunt for the league title may have narrowed to two clubs. A premature opinion with six still to play? Maybe, but it's really hard to pick anyone else considering the form the Reds and Tigers have shown lately. Both had fairly dominant wins, with Yassaca absorbing everything Megabrantid had to throw at them, and countering capably with excellent breakouts from the defensive third up through the midfield to the strikers, who certainly got a workout. By the time Verhulst was brought off for Vatanian in the 75th, she was pouring sweat, and looked perfectly satisfied to leave the match, having already scored a goal after all. Lublova had their second three-goal performance since the ugly scoreless draw with Chalesm, and continue to be a team that will find a way to get you from the one angle you haven't considered. Concentrate on closing down Peikola's distribution and the team shifts outside to Ashbrown or Siegel. Mark the strikers too closely and a slower defender will get burned by Wojewodka. Back off too much out of respect for her speed and Caldryn will punish you. Somehow cover all five of the main attackers and it's Knanirck stepping up from his holding role. None of these players is going to beat you on their own, but damn they're opportunistic. Elsewhere, Sporting are back in the win column in a very important match against Arkintoofle, whom they now trail by just one point.

Another big result for Yassaca, who get the win over Royals on a late tiebreaker from Xhose after Rallyton's early goal was cancelled out by Ridenton. On top of that, Algolia did the Tigers a huge favor by beating Lublova in a ten-goal manager's nightmare. Neither side will be particularly happy with the way they played. No one held control of the midfield, or of possession, and both back lines committed some serious errors. Rebljeten had his best performance in what felt like months, scoring twice, and assisting on two more goals, one for Eisenhauer and one for Holstege. Presic and Ciernik also scored for Algolia, though the center back's late header won't spare her the ire of her goalkeeper after she twice lost track of Wojewodka, leaving Ross with little chance to stop the Lublova striker. Lublova's back line will probably be best off just hitting the pub, buying Drenel several rounds and hoping she doesn't remember the match by tomorrow. They aren't the only ones with some explaining to do, as Damogran tried to run with freewheeling Sporting and turned Russell's net into a shooting gallery. Vang led the way as usual, but Jansi, Brighton, and Poulain also chipped in, helping their club finally climb out of the automatic drop zone, as Arkintoofle wen down away to Syneca.

Megabrantid, very much focused on the league, and their upcoming derby match with Brantisvogan, trotted out the B team, who put in a pretty uninspired performance. Lublova got a moral victory over Yassaca, but that won't make up their deficit in the league.

Fresh off their 6-4 triumph over Lublova, Algolia take their eye off the metaphorical ball and got their defense absolutely torn apart by Arkintoofle, who are now even with Sporting on points. Bracquaval and Korrapati, while not really in control of the midfield, were able to connect with one another consistently, and kept an uncharacteristically off-form Yunal-Julad guessing. Vinogradov absolutely went off, overshadowing Eisenhauer's brace by scoring 4 before being taken off to a thunderous ovation in the 77th. Quliyev, his replacement, notched the insurance marker late on. In the title race, it was a bit of a bore, with fans everywhere watching the out of town scoreboard, waiting for something to happen. All three of the league leaders puttered to scoreless draws, leaving Yassaca still leading Lublova by five, with Megabrantid just one point behind the Reds. It's certainly not impossible, but it is hard to imagine someone catching Yassaca at this point, as it would require them to lose two of their last four while one of Lubloca or Megabrantid wins out. We'll have a lot clearer picture of whether this race will go down to the wire or not in a weeks time after the final whistle between Lublova and Yassaca. Oh, and Viltvodle United are even with Algolia on points, and are out of the IFCF on goal differential only. What the hell?

Well now! There's going to be some intrigue down the final stretch after all. Lublova eke out the away win in Yassaca, while Megabrantid take care of business against Emerald Coast and the five point lead has become two, with Megabrantid within reach of taking the league on a tiebreaker just one more point behind. Algolia, Royals, and sigh Viltvodle United also all won, forcing us to use goal differential to sort out fourth through sixth places. That's right, the Hornets would be in the Challengers' Cup if the season ended today. Their crushing home defeat of Syneca, sparked by superb performances from Luk and Bonartt in particular all but eliminates the Sea Lions from IFCF contention, and Titor Hlinka was relieved of his duties the following day. In the Damogran derby, the Eagles' inconsitent form was on display once again. One week removed from a decent enough win over Syneca, they were absolutely shelled by Algolia, controlling the middle of the field well enough, but unable to stop the barrage of accurate crosses coming in from Presic and Holstege. Chalesm also fired their manager this week after losing a close one to Sporting in Jaglan. They are mathematically eliminiated from IFCF contention now, but that reality had set in a while ago, and it's a little surprising they waited this long. Who knows, if they'd been more decisive, perhaps they could be the side enjoying a resurgence under Devane Miller, as their opponents are. Sporting have pulled clear of Arkintoofle for the moment, and are actually now within striking distance of Interblag to possibly avoid the relegation playoff as well.

Well, so much for the great march up the table by Sporting. Getting blasted 5-1 by your biggest rival after losing 0-4 to them earlier in the year while you're fighting like hell to stay out of the drop zone is just not a good time at all. As has been the case in so many of the Emeralds' wins, the right flank was the focus, with Lieftinck and Yoltz-Jonto overlapping, and exchanging quick passes with Khan and Alexandre. Romano, capable player that she is, was caught too far up the field on a few occasions, and Rebsch was not the player to stop Nazahn today. The misfortune for Sporting with regard to the relegation race was compounded by wins from Interblag, who knocked off Damogran in Damogran, and Arkintoofle, who again capitalized on Vinogradov's good recent form to knock off the league leaders. With just two to play, Interblag are all but safe from the playoff with a five point lead on Sporting. Arkintoofle are even on points with the Rebels, but trail by virtue of their truly awful goal differential. Oh yeah, also Viltvodle United beat Algolia, because that's apparently how things work in this country now. The lukewarm results ahead of them on the table mean the Hornets are in realistic striking distance of the league title. How bad would that suck for Yassaca? All season you've looked destined to finally win the club's first league title, and some newly relegated side with a 37 year old center half come along to spoil your party. Either that or it'll be fucking Megabrantid again, rich bastards.

Ok, so the title race is set up for an incredibly dramatic final day, with Lublova, Yassaca, and Megabrantid all having a shot at the top spot. Lublova have some work to do to overcome Yassaca's advantage in goal differential, but stranger things have happened. Case in point, Viltvodle United are still in fourth, and while Algolia can catch them with a win and a Hornets loss, a single point will clinch a Challengers' Cup berth for a team that spent last season in the second tier. Enough about the title race, the IFCF race and enough, for the moment, about Viltvodle United. We need to take a minute or two to discuss their erstwhile rivals, Viltvodle City. If luck is a finite resource, United have sucked up every drop of it to be found in Viltvodle. City picked up a point today, but have been having the worst season in the history of the Superleague. They've long ago lost any chance of beating their own mark for futility, a 23-point, last place finish in season 6. Today's result though, makes it impossible for them to achieve more than 19 points in the final standings, a full two points worse than the previous lowest total of 21, recorded by Sporting back in season 5. A loss will leave them where they stand at 16 points, just over half a point per match. Half a point. They're no La Querida, sure, but this is a new mark for futility in the Confederacy. So how did they get here, just one season removed from winning League 1? It's actually really not that difficult to explain. Djanetic is old. Thiel's rebuilt knee can't deliver the athleticism needed to compete at this level. Jaagup and Kadirc don't know how to move off the ball, and Higon wouldn't know a scoring opportunity if it sent him eggplant and peach emoji. The back line has been actually surprisingly ok, and Kzocovsky isn't terrible. They're not about to steal a match for this team though. The bench hasn't helped out much either, and it's probably time to move on from a few of the former prospects taking up space there. This team would've been ok in League 1, but they really had no business getting themselves promoted. Bad idea, better luck next season.

Right then, here we go. Yassaca, Megabrantid, and Lublova all come into the day having clinched an IFCF appearance, but still fighting for the league, and for the latter two, to see whether they'd end up in the Champions' League or Challengers' Cup. The league, it has to be said, is Yassaca's to lose. Not only do they lead Megabrantid by two, but their final match is against overachieving VIltvodle United. Not an opponent to underestimate, as many have learned to their sorrow this season, but not the toughest matchup either. Megabrantid and Lublova, on the other hand face each other. Two teams would enter Slavnaresczpospolitastadion and one, or possibly neither, would leave with their title hopes alive. One at least, would be able to clinch a spot in the Champions' League, barring some absurdly lopsided victory by Royals or Viltvodle. Speaking of Royals, they find themselves even on points with the Hornets, as both clubs try to fend off a last desperate challenge from Algolia, who sense opportunity, facing lowly Sporting. At the end of the day, Megabrantid had crushed the Reds, but it was too little too late to salvage the three-peat. The Tigers played a tight match, keeping the ball away from the Hornets for long stretches of the match, and appropriately enough, got the match's lone goal off the foot of Ødegaard. The Vanorian striker has truly been the last missing piece Yassaca were looking for, and got a desrved ovation from the away fans when Melkum brought him off just before stoppage time. For the Firm, it isn't the Championship they'd hoped for, but they can still absolutely be proud of their performance. They earned their fifth straight IFCF berth, and their third straight in the Champions' League. They have finished top 3 in six of the past seven seasons, and a glance at their roster, both first team and reserves, shows that their championship window remains wide open. Lublova's on the other hand, has only just opened a crack, as their run to third place was the second most surprising result from the league this season. A return of at least one of the big Molvanian clubs to relevance can only be a good thing for Confederate football. We'll be keeping a close eye on Matthews and the Reds during the upcoming transfer window to see what moves they make to try to repeat this run.
Algolia, behind them, managed to salvage a terrible start to the season, but will definitely be disappointed. How different might things have been for them had they not stumbled out of the gate? Their front office must also be looking at the steadily advancing age of the attack with some concern. Every first team midfielder and forward will be 30 or older at the start of next season. With the team consistenly good, but not a genuine title contender every season, there may be a need for some retooling here and there. Right behind the Suntigers, the most surprising result is Viltvodle United hanging on to fifth on goal differential. Their league-best 21 goals against ties the Superleague record set last season by Yassaca. Fitting that it was the Tigers who scored the 21st goal against the Hornets today, preventing the record from being broken. The team won't care much about that though, as they've capped off an incredible run. This victory belongs to the entire team, but to no one more than Rocco Luk. The Eastfielder has spent eight seasons with the Hornets, sticking with them through the good and bad, and will have a chance to lead his team in international domestic competition. Royals, Traal, Damogran, and Brantisvogan round out the teams that were in contention, with Royals finishing tantalizingly close to fifth, but having to settle for applying to the Vilitan Cove Invitational instead. A single point earned against Traal today would have boosted them to fourth, but the elusive equalizer could not be found.
Damogran and Brantisvogan will both be regretting missed opportunities down the stretch, as both found themselves unable to hold onto a spot in the top five at one point or another. For Damogran, this may occasion some roster shakeups. They expected to be quite a bit better, and in this business, that will mean someone has to answer for the shortcoming, though who precisely is uncertain. For Brantisvogan, a veteran addition or two might help, but they'll be mostly counting on continuing development from their young players. You have to think next season will see them re-enter the top half. Traal, conversely, never really looked like a serious threat for the IFCF, despite always being in the picture. Their search for a striker likely goes on, as Ajao was definitely not the answer this season. This sentence won't earn me any friends among the Traal die-hards, but might it be time for Lopal Daror to move on? He's been in Traal as long as anyone can remember, and one has to wonder if things have gone slightly stale of late. Further down, Syneca crashed hard after a good start, and Chalesm never really entered the picture. There's some tough soul searching to be done at those two clubs, as both will start searching for new leadership on the touchline. The Sea Lions let Hlinka go a few weeks ago, while Kotsyubov, just three seasons removed from a league title and manager of the season honors, gets his own marching orders after a lackluster final loss to Interblag. The Molvanian Blues totally failed to live up to last season's result, but there's still a sense of hope, as theirs is a young team overall, and should get better. Likewise, Emerald Coast and Sporting, the latter of whom avoided relegation only because Arkintoofle can't defend to save their lives, will be hopeful for next season, with young players coming up, and the prospect of Superleague football to attract players in the transfer window.

Sometimes thing work out pretty much as predicted. Brasta had a chance to overtake Athletic with a win today, but the Furies defended tenaciously and hung on for the draw. Wavel AC gave the Buccaneers a scare at the end, but couldn't find a second goal against Sjerezo, with Dziwulski looking nigh unbeatable in net. Han Dold City avoid the disgrace of relegation, but a 13th-place finish costs Sovrag Scordo his job, as the Wolfpack look to rebound under new management next season. Svetranj got a bit better down the home strech, but not enough to avoid the ignominy of last place. Both Flamarion sides accompany them down, and Shorath Haldas is also relieved of his duties after two relegations in as many seasons.

Sporting Jaglan 0–0 Wavel AC (0–0 AET) (3–1 pen.)
UFC Flamarion 0–1 Hensha
Dynamo Bardjov 1–3 Rennerby Town
Sporting, after avoiding automatic relegation by an extremely narrow margin, take things to extremes again in the playoff. Their potent attack was stymied by Wavel's determined bus-parking for 120 minutes, and the uncertainty of the penalty shootout loomed. In the end, it wasn't as nerve wracking as one might have expected. Only Dahl, shooting third, scored for Wavel, and only Rakiric missed for Sporting. Vang buried hers to start things off, Shimski parried away shots from Ness and Utkin both, and Craink sent hers over the bar to end it after conversions from Poulain and Brighton. In League 1 v League 2, Hensha, predicted by many to win the league outright, just barely squeaked by UFC, after a miraculous run to the league title by newly promoted Revolution, and a strong showing from Sasava for second. Bardjov showed off their league-worst defense in allowing three to Rennerby to cap off a pretty miserable season.

Hensha Rockets 0–2 Lublova Reds
In the end it was all too easy. Rockets, perhaps a bit emotionally exhausted after their fairytale run, just weren't up to the task of challenging the Reds. If Lublova were downhearted after missing out on the Champions' League, it didn't show, and they punched their ticket for the Cup Winners cup easily. An early goal from Ashbrown at the near post set the tone, and they held an overwhelming advantage in possession until the final minutes, after Peikola had doubled their advantage.

Superleague Player Awards:
Signing of the Season:
Mathias Ødegaard, ST, YAS
Yassaca finally found what was missing these past few seasons. Adding the dynamic Vanorian to the midfield and defense they've patiently built up put them over the top and Ødegaard was a vital part of the title run.
Runners-Up:
Rynyr-Xertal Ixi & Evela-Dwada Inu, CB & LB, VLU; Hekima Drenel, GK, LUB; Johanna Álvgeirsdóttir, CM, MSC
It's impossible to separate the contributions of the two Qusmi'y who joined United's back line. That defense was so integral to their surprise result that multi-position defender Jinpachi Mishima very nearly made this list as well. Drenel brought stability at the back for Lublova, helping them reach new highs, and Álvgeirsdóttir played well enough for the Firm that they really didn't miss Marrish much at all, which is more impressive than it sounds.

Best Goalkeeper:
Hekima Drenel, LUB
Ekewakan and Xynat-Evela both put up better statistics on the surface, but did so with much better back lines in front of them. Lublova's back line isn't bad, you can't come in third in the league with a bad back line, but they don't boast the world class players that Yassaca and MSC do. Drenel had to work a lot harder for her wins, and delivered.
Runners-Up:
Argis Ekewakan, YAS; Xynat-Evela Cuf, MSC; George Ross, ALG
Ekewakan and Xynat-Evela anchored the third and fourth best defenses in the league. Ross might be a surprising inclusion this season, what with Algolia's ugly goals against stat, but played much better than that would indicate. He faced more clear-cut scoring chances than any other goalkeeper who finished in the top half.

Best Defender:
Walda Harkhan, YAS
What, did you think that the woman who's been a finalist for the award four seasons straight and won it in three of those seasons wouldn't be here again the season her club finally wins the league? Yeah it's Walda Harkhan again, and it's not particularly close.
Runners-Up:
Eileen Green, MSC; Evela-Dwada Inu, VLU; Rynyr-Xertal Ixi, VLU
Green continues to defy age out on the left to lead Megabrantid's back line. Again, it's impossible to separate the Qusmi'y, and both are named runners-up for the vast improvement they brought to United's defense.

Best Midfielder:
Linus Rallyton, YAS
There's no reason to look further than the captain of our champions. Rallyton led his club in assists by a country mile, much as he often does for the Kohnhead national team. Teams that slept too much on his shooting ability paid the price though.
Runners-Up:
Iuri Takala, MSC; Ross Presic, ALG; Rocco Luk, VLU
Takala had another great year, and led all midfielders in goalscoring, but like his club, in the end he fell just short. Presic continues to be the outstanding member of a very good midfield unit in Algolia. As for Rocco Luk, sure, there may be other midfielders out there who are better than him, or even played better this season. You can't argue that any midfielder was more important to their team than the Hornets' captain though, and that leadership lands him on the list.

Best Striker:
Sigrid Eisenhauer, ALG
With the defense struggling to find their form this season, Eisenhauer and the rest of Algolia's attack dragged their team back up the table by sheer quantity of scoring.
Runners-Up:
Mathias Ødegaard, YAS; Gelan-Yivix Eva, MSC; Jagusza Wojewodka, LUB
Ødegaard wasn't quite the dominant presence on his own team that Eisenhauer was, perhaps because he didn't have to be. Nonetheless, he had an excellent debut season, and has Tigers supporters excited about the future. Gelan-Yivix had their usual solid showing as the featured striker in Megabrantid's second-ranked attack. Wojewodka didn't carry a bad team as some other strikers down the table like Vang, Autenrieth, Lafayette or Finnan did, but her continuing emergence as a top striker deserves recognition here. Both Yassaca and Megabrantid nearly had a second player listed among the runners-up, in Verhulst for the Tigers, and Cant for the Firm.

Best Young Player (U-21):
Johanna Álvgeirsdóttir, CM, MSC
Calling a transition in midfield seamless, or noting that Álvgeirsdóttir capably performed just as well as the player she replaced sounds like faint praise until you consider who that player was: national team starter Isperia Marrish. The fact that she stepped into the lineup of a two time defending champion with a performance like this at just 20 makes it all the more impressive.
Runners-Up:
Jozica Szimon, CB, LUB; Joachim Siegel, MF, LUB; Rian Marko, CB, TRA
Szimon and Siegel, far from being the weak points one might sometimes expect of raw talent, were intergral parts of Lublova's lineup. Marko, with the barest edge in experience, only just pushes his teammate, Kim, out of the runners-up.

Best Foreign Player:
Sigrid Eisenhauer, ST, ALG
Runners-Up:
Linus Rallyton, CM, YAS; Mathias Ødegaard, ST, YAS; Eileen Green, LB, MSC

Manager of the Year:
Lynul-Zorno Dar, VLU
While you might expect this to be another award for Yassaca, after they finally reach the top of the mountain, United's shocking climb up the table over the final third of the season is impossible to ignore. We've given a lot of credit to the new players they brought in, but the manager who brought those players on and directed their tactics has to be recognized as well.
Runners-Up:
Irfun Melkum, YAS; Seneca Matthews, LUB; Larry Bryson, MSC
Melkum has to settle for runner up, but he can cry into his league trophy. Matthews taking Lublova to third might have been good enough for the top spot in a different year. Bryson gets a nod as well for overseeing a relatively seamless management transition for the Firm.

Team of the Season:
First Team: Ekewakan (YAS); Green (MSC), Harkhan (YAS), Rynyr-Xertal (VLU), Achthoven (YAS); Ashbrown (LUB), Rallyton (YAS), Takala (MSC), Presic (ALG); Eisenhauer (ALG), Ødegaard (YAS)

City: Damogran, Algolia
Stadium: Albrechtsson Park (cap. 65,400)
Nickname(s): The Suntigers
Coaches:
Manager: Dolvin Antal 61 y/o
Assistants: Perrin Chabchoub 49 y/o, Amin Kaldora 48 y/o
Captain: Danin Stolp
Notable Products: Roffen Ritschl, Terun Cadash, Bruenna Savo
Club Summary: One of the oldest clubs in the confederacy, Algolia has been around since well before the war. In the old days, it was seen more as the team of the upper class of Damogran, and in the years following the war, its supporters were often seen as sympathetic to the Imperium. Algolia supporters are more likely to be from the eastern and northern suburbs of Damogran, and a slight income disparity between them and supporters of the other big Damogran clubs remains, fueling resentment. They also enjoy a spirited rivalry against Royals, another team traditionally associated with white-collar supporters. Matches with the big Brantisvogan clubs are also a big affair, especially when there are championship implications. Despite all their success, however, Algolia hasn't quite caught on as a nationwide brand, and their support is still mostly concentrated in and around Damogran, and western Algolia generally.
Rivals: Damogran (local/historical/competitive), Jaglan Royals (regional/historical), Athletic (local)
Trophy Case: League 1 (S2), Supercup (S3)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 4th
S6: Superleague - 9th
S7: Superleague - 4th
S8: Superleague - 2nd
S9: Superleague - 4th

This Year: After a rough start to the season, Algolia fought their way to a top-four finish, but the championship they've sought was out of reach. Sevcik moves on after a single, disastrous season with the Suntigers, and will be replaced by Tikariotian international James Coronello. Former SRS U21 international Puja Falayam will be a depandable depth option, and the center back situation looks to have immediately improved. Up front though, the attack is getting old. There's just no kind way to say it. Presic, Yunal-Julad, Rebljeten, and Stolp are all current or former internationals, and both Holstege and Eisenhauer might have been had they not been born in such footballing powerhouses. Every one of them is now on the wrong side of thirty, though. How much longer can they keep defying time? Pretty soon, there are going to be hard decisions to make in the Algolia boardroom, and putting them off isn't going to help anyone. They were a phenomenal core, and led this team to be consistent contenders year in and year out, but if Algolia want to avoid a full-on rebuild, the time to act is now. There are few particularly promising players on their bench, and their academy team were nothing special, finishing mid table in Youth Series 2. IN a reversal of last season, their defense will be what keeps them in the IFCF race, but I'd expect a very active window for them post-season after finishing just short.

Club Summary: Founded by former Damogran FC goalkeeper Pyotr Nedvinsky, Athletic has always had a sort of sibling rivalry toward their older, more successful, and more afflent neighbors. That said, they've often been a solid club in their own right, and have spent recent years either as a decent bottom half team in the top tier, or as one of the best teams in the second tier. Upset-minded, but inconsistent may be the best summation of the club's overall reputation. Fan groups coordinate their wardrobe on match days to create stripes, checkerboards, or other designs of Athletic's orange and purple in the stands.
Rivals: Damogran (local), Algolia (local), Sporting Jaglan (regional/competitive), Emerald Coast (regional/competitive)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S8), League 1 (S9), League 2 (S1), Supercup (S9)

S7: Superleague - 12th
S8: Superleague - 15th
S9: League 1 - 1st

This Year: The player-manager experiment was a resounding success at Athletic, despite legions of doubters prior to the season. Slotting right in to a well-rounded team that consistently found a way to win the close ones all season long, the Qusmi went from a dubious figure surrounded by speculation to a bona fide club hero. With nearly half of the first team making League 1's team of the season, and a remarkable degree of roster stability, this team looks ready to play at a Superleague level immediately. They have a tried and true striker pairing, with capable depth in Kahun. The back line is bolstered by the arrival of Herron, while Heron remains an excellent backstop. The big question is the same as last season. Then it was a question of whether the midfield could work together with an outspoken team captain and a player-manager three years her junior on the field at the same time. That answer was a resounding yes, but now we find out with they can keep it together through the much harder task of going up against the Superleague's best. The Furies' best players have to be their best players if they're going to succeed at this level, but also look for some of the bench players now coming into their prime to start making some bigger contributions, including the aforementioned Lirella Kahun, but also Sivils and Henau.

Club Summary: BFC are a very wealthy and well-supported club with a long history. Their original association was with the upper class, particularly the Squornshelan ruling elite in the days when Brantisvogan was the capital of West Squornshelous. In fact, until the war, the Imperial Viceroy held an honorary position as club president by tradition. While this old association is often brought up by opposing fans, the modern fanbase spans a broad cross-section of Brantids, and the real reason for resentment is more likely the club's consistent presence in the top tier, and their nationwide support. Nothing is as obnoxious as watching your neighbors, who ought to support their hometown club, jump on the bandwagon of a rich, successful team like Brantisvogan. While Brantisvogan's traditional rival is Chalesm, in more recent years their biggest match of the year has come against nouveau-riche, cross-town rivals, MSC.
Rivals: Chalesm (historical/regional), Megabrantid (local)

This Year: It was an up and down year for the Red Flash. They were in the hunt for the top 5 most of the season, but couldn't hang onto a spot, and eventually tumbled down out of the top half on goal differential. There'll be a couple new faces around as Gannon continues her retooling of the lineup. The biggest change will be in net, where Jonason finally hangs up his boots after seven seasons as the club's first choice keeper. Magnussen will fill the void for now, and should be capable enough, but many eyes will be on the CA Paulinthal youth product Topic. The teenage Pasargan has a bit of growing to do, both figuratively and literally, but shows the type of promise that could lead to an even longer run with Brantisvogan than Jonason's. The midfield should again be a source of strength for this team, with Akkaynak ready to follow up on her breakout season, and Soule ready to provide a seamless replacement for the retiring Coynborough. McConnaugh's development will be important for the attack, as Koppuri is not a player to carry it on his own. Brantisvogan will once again be a very young team, but should be able to make some incremental improvement over last season's inconsistent performance.

Manager: Jigar Cisneros 59 y/o
Assistants: Rim Hakouby 52 y/o, Busra Maran 47 y/o
Captain: Margath Helder
Notable Products: Valda Harkhan, Eetu Pianka
Club Summary: The largest club in Sivolvia's smallest major city, which is also the southernmost in the Confederacy, Brasta's gold and gray symbolize the sand and lava rock of the local beaches. Brasta is known primarily as a tourist destination through most of the Confederacy, but football matches are one place where the townies can go to get away from the Brantids and Algolians crowding their beaches and bars. They have a reputation for frequent drunkenness and debauched fan behavior, but it's debatable how deserved it is. Certainly there are a highly visible minority of fans who get up to stereotpical nonsense. Most of them though, boring as it may be, are pretty well behaved.

League Form:

S6: Superleague - 13th
S7: Superleague - 7th

S9: League 1 - 2nd

This Year: Brasta, sad to say, just look a bit outclassed here. Last season they eked out automatic promotion by the closest possible margin, even on both points and goal differential with Wavel. Looking at their roster, you have to conclude that it might have been better for them to spend one more season in League 2 for a little more seasoning. Most of their roster falls under the heading of "good player, but still makes too many rookie mistakes." With the departure of starting center mid Eluned and depth fullback Palk, the club now has only two players over the age of 30: team captain Margath Helder, and well-traveled wide midfielder and former SRS international Vrenz Tambura. That's not to say that there isn't experience on this team. Velen and Farnau the newcomer in midfield have plenty, but neither is a spectacular player. You're moving up to the Superleague and an average center mid from an average League 1 side is the best you can do as far as reinforcements? Yeah this team definitely should've spent another season in the second tier. Luckily, they'll get a chance to play there again very soon.

Assistants: Zeynab Konul 48 y/o, Rizwan Dubagi 54 y/o
Captain: Izoni Hocij
Notable Products: Zoban Ajao, Shrike Hagaz
Club Summary: Chalesm is another very old club with a long tradition of excellence dating back well before the war. As the biggest club in the new capital (can it still be called new as its centennial gradually nears?) they are natural rivals of Brantisvogan, and the Capital Derby is one of the highlights of the SCFA season. Chalesm is, in fact, the only club of any real significance in the capital, which is unusual for a city its size. Third/Fourth tier side Revolution are a distant second when competing for supporters.
Rivals: Brantisvogan (historical/regional), Megabrantid (regional)

League Form:
S5: Superleague - 6th
S6: Superleague - 1st
S7: Superleague - 6th
S8: Superleague - 7th
S9: Superleague - 10th

This Year:One of the league's most cosmopolitan rosters became even more so during the window. Sigurkarl Kristiansson of Græntfjall takes the helm, bringing in Emile Robin to be the #6 in his 4-1-4-1. This means that, not including Confederates, Chalesm has 7 different nationalities represented on the field, and an eighth on the touchline. They'll be hoping for much more cohesion than last season despite that linguistic diversity. Looking around at their roster, there's really no reason why this team shouldn't be capable of a top-half finish, especially with a management change as a shot in the arm for the players. Kinner Mustahil still has a good couple seasons left in him, and the defense can be among the league's best if Kristiansson can bring out their full potential. With Robin patrolling in front of the back line, the full backs will also be a little more free to make moves up the field, which should help out with a midfield that is a bit uninspiring. Nazarov is decent, but not an exciting player by any stretch, and neither Oljanen nor Dahlin has made a particularly convincing case to be Marrigan's replacement beside him. Hocij's form has fallen off a cliff, and it's hard to say going forward whether it's a flukey period in a great career, or an indication of what should be expected from her in her 30's. Lafayette will have more work to do in a single-striker setup, but should relish the challenge, so long as the team can get the ball to him. They say defense wins championships, and while that's definitely premature in Chalesm's case, defense should be enough to get them back into the top half.

Club Summary: The other of the big Damogran clubs, Damogran FC are rich in tradition and in currency. While in their old days they were more of a lower-class club, greatly improved income equality since the war has lessened that distinction. Damogran are the best-supported club in Damogran, and in Algolia as a whole, and their fanbase today comes from all walks of life. Most Algolian football fans without a strong connection to another club would probably list Damogran as their favorite club, and the fanbase has a reputation for traveling very well, frequently rivaling the home support with the volume of their chants. While many fans from outside Algolia will frequently refer to the club as Damogran FC, sometimes abbreviated to Damo FC, to avoid confusion with Athletic, Damogran's fans generally find this insulting, and bluntly refuse to see any room for ambiguity. "We're Damogran, they're Athletic, and that's all there is to it."
Rivals: Algolia (local/competitive), Athletic (local), Jaglan Royals (regional)
Trophy Case: N/A
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 5th
S6: Superleague - 6th
S7: Superleague - 9th
S8: Superleague - 4th
S9: Superleague - 8th

This Year: Damogran's league form continues to be truly baffling, as they followed up their long sought after first IFCF berth by finishing one goal out of the bottom half. Theirs was the story of a deadly dangerous midfield being consistently let down by its strikers' finishing. To address the problem, both starting strikers from last season's opening day will be absent from the lineup. Klaniczay heads for League 2, while Akkeren only has to go as far as the bench. Declining to enter the Ocokoljic sweepstakes, Damogran nonetheless signed themselves a dynamic Mytanar striker in Dejan Zgela. They also promoted Prokop from the bench, though Charmchi and Akkeren will also see time. If one or two of those players work out for them, the Eagles should be a very dangerous attacking team, and no slouches on defense either. Walker, Moreland and Russell have buckets of experience, and the chemistry of years playing together in Damogran besides that. Longstreet's tenure with the Eagle's has had a bit of a rocky start, but seems ready to settle in at center back, which is good, because while Halfariani shows tons of promise, he's still quite young and will need her to bail him out sometimes. The long and short of it though, is that this team looks good, really good. It's Damogran though, so take that with a grain of salt and remember they could always find a way to finish 10th. Probably not though.

Club Summary: Left-out of the big Algolian rivalries of the Damogran and Jaglan clubs, Emerald Coast have a much more laid back image, something which can also be said of their home, Algolia's third-largest city, Vassilian. That doesn't stop them from contesting heated rivalries with Athletic and Sporting Jaglan though. The club's history is one of relative mediocrity, generally seeing them finish somewhere in the bottom half of the top league, with occasional trips down to the second tier. Despite that, they are generally well-respected as a club that excels at developing young players.

This Year: The Emeralds are once again getting by on shrewd acquisitions and youthful energy. There's been more turnover than normal this season, with four starters departing and the club ill-positioned to just run out to the footballer store for shiny new replacements. They managed to get a good deal on Gualter Montez, who was buried on the depth chart at Lublova, but pickings were slim elsewhere. At center mid and striker it will be replacement by committee, with Shanthi, Misra, and HDC product Bernat set to fill in in midfield, and Sultana and Rao up front. The team will be very dependent for leadership on its players down the middle: Ingerman, Karapetyan, Alexandre, and Nazahn. The midfield should also be strong on the wings, with Montez representing a better counterpart for Yoltz-Jonto to keep defenses more honest. There are definite bright spots, but the overall impression is of a team just barely being held together. They were fortunate not to lose any of their best players to poaching from bigger clubs. One more departure might have been enough for them to fall apart completely. As it is, they'll struggle, but should just about be able to keep their heads above water.

Manager: Viordar Haczliov (49 y/o)
Assistants: Hajdar Kelisakiev (45 y/o), Rostislav Dobrynin (50 y/o)

Club Summary: Many expected Interblag to be sanctioned by the SCFA for their murky finances and alleged ties to organized crime by this time. Investigations are ongoing, but nothing seems to stick to the club as of yet. Interblag quietly rebuilt their team and won their way back to the top flight. They are the oldest and best-supported club in their home state of Molvania, with Lublova as their only serious rival in that regard.
Rivals: Lublova Reds (regional/competitive), Traktor Gryrorik (regional), Sjerezo (regional)
Trophy Case: League 1 (S5)

S5: League 1    - 1st
S6: Superleague - 11th
S7: Superleague - 13th
S8: Superleague - 7th
S9: Superleague - 14th

This Year: Haczliov has overseen a four-season run in the top tier after pulling Interblag out of the second tier, but it all seems on the verge of crashing down. The back line struggled after the loss of Sevcik a season ago, and looks set to do so again, as Vrboska and Vodsavo can't seem to find their form of a few seasons ago. Now, the attack looks unstable as well. Nadzab is on the outs after a bad couple years, and Racszak suffered a career ending knee injury. The answer, Haczliov hopes, is Ônzántolöìra, who will bring Farf attacking creativity to the Superleague by way of Tequilo. Ahead of him the favorite to start at striker is Wronzki, though Haczliov must be ready to try different players, or even alter his formation to better suit his roster if the results don't come. Ônzántolöìra and whoever takes the second striker job will have the advantage of stepping into a position with two very capable players supporting them in Drunau and Autenrieth. Both women probably have left their best days behind them, but opponents will do well to rmember that each has suited up for the Black-and-Red in world cup qualifying before. They should not be underestimated. Whether their play will be enough to save the rest of the team is in doubt though, and Hacliov is not expected to make it past matchday 20, if indeed he can keep his job even that long.

City: Jaglan, Algolia
Stadium: Castle Street (cap. 57,300)
Nickname(s): The Royals (obviously)
Coaches:
Manager: Danyal Masalkar 46 y/o
Assistants: Javaid Bulavir 51 y/o, Vaarin Strepol 37 y/o
Captain: Isla Ridenton
Notable Products: Mithya Hashemi, Kaalia Gerstlauer
Club Summary: Founded well before the war, Royals original patron was the king of Algolia, who was briefly allowed to keep a ceremonial title after Imperial annexation of his kingdom. They are perhaps the only old, upper-class club in the Confederacy that has little to no association in the minds of fans with the old Imperial regime. One of the most heartwarming traditions in Confederate football can be witnessed each year when Royals host Algolia. The patients of a local children's hospital are all crowned honorary Kings and Queens of Jaglan, and are granted free admission to the match with their families.
Rivals: Damogran (regional/competitive), Algolia (regional/competitive), Sporting Jaglan (local)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S6)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 11th
S6: Superleague - 8th
S7: Superleague - 3rd
S8: Superleague - 5th
S9: Superleague - 6th

This Year: Just barely edged out of an IFCF appearance by Viltvodle United's surprising late-season charge last season, Royals are back with what is essentially the same side to try again. A couple depth players sere sold off, a future prospect brought in to the midfield, but not much else has changed. As always for Masalkar's side, everything starts with the team's spine. They live and die by the form of Ridenton and Dalso. Not to say that there aren't other good players capable of elevating the team. Premyr and Nocturne do really excellent work patrolling the outsides of the back three and Zarek is a dependable, if unexciting shot stopper. Up front, Mevlya is, well maybe the best word is satisfactory? Kaidanov has shown flashed of brilliance, but the team is hoping for more consistency from him. Youth graduate Lindholm could see a fair amount of time if either Mevlya or Kaidanov fails to impress, as could Targas and Hoang in midfield, and Vologoha on defense. Hopefully Royals don't make the same mistake with this collection of youngsters as they did with two of their recent prospects. Imagine if instead of Etrata Rai and Oleg Kaidanov, this team still had Mithya Hashemi and Kaalia Gerstlauer. Ah well, no sense dwelling on might-have-beens. The attack at present is decent enough, and holds the ball well, but lacks the killer instinct and consistent finishing that a true league contender needs. As it is they look just good enough to sneak into the Challengers' Cup provided the defense holds, much as they would have last season without that magical run from the Hornets.

City: Lublova, Molvania
Stadium: Slavnarzeczpospolitastadion (cap. 61,230)
Nickname(s): The Reds (no kidding)
Coaches:
Manager: Seneca Matthews (NPH) (54 y/o)
Assistants: Vadim Koszeniak (50 y/o), Nikaeia Yozwiak (43 y/o)
Captain: Gordon Clayton
Notable Products: Jzeovak Vladcik, Demkjo Jzvanic, Djabgor Dzarkhin, Dymek Raktsov
Club Summary: Molvania's second team by fan support, it's probably fair to call the Reds the most consistent team in Molvania. They are a safe bet for a mid-table finish most years, and occasionally break into the title race. Their supporters are known as heavy drinkers, but generally hooliganism is minimal. (honestly, if there's a team whose fans don't have a reputation for drinking, I've yet to hear of them). Lublova's steppe nomad heritage is on display at Reds matches though, with elaborate traditional costumes to be found everywhere. Impromptu bareback horse races have even been known to break out at pre-match parties.
Rivals: Interblag (regional/historical), Lokomotiv Dzrebo (regional), Dynamo Bardjov (regional), Dynamo Lublova (local)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S9)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 10th
S6: Superleague - 12th
S7: Superleague - 11th
S8: Superleague - 10th
S9: Superleague - 3rd

This Year: Are Lublova for real? That's the question being asked all across the Confederacy during the off-season. Matthews' side storemd seemingly out of nowhere to challenge Yassaca and Megabrantid for the league title before finishing third and clinching their first international club competition appearance in seven seasons. With a mixture of shrewd acquisitions like Drenel and Siegel, and homegrown talent such as Wojewodka and Szimon, the Reds retooled a bottom-half team into a contender in a single off-season. They've taken a similar measured approach during the recent window, selling off a couple of depth players to raise money for the big splash. It took a pretty penny to pry Viadzo away from regional rivals Sjerezo, but Lublova believe she is the successor to Ashbrown out left, and were willing to take the hit. Flipping former U21 international Titov to Megabrantid and replacing him with a cheaper depth option was a smart move, as was promoting Grost from within to replace Vannifar at right back. Knanirck and Peikola return to form the core of the midfield, as do McWilliams and Clayton on the back line. This team looks good again, and while the opposition will be ready for them this season, they also know a little more about what it takes to win. Look to see them pushing the leaders hard once again, and heading back to the Challengers' Cup.

City: Brantisvogan, Megabrantis
Stadium: Megabrantid Financial Field (cap. 69,245)
Nickname(s): The Firm, MSC
Coaches:
Manager: Larry Bryson (CBP) (56 y/o)
Assistants: Rahul Kaara (56 y/o), Manakei Kuboushet (53 y/o)
Captain: Iuri Takala
Notable Products: Joris Elzokari, Danin Enesca, Isperia Marrish
Club Summary: MSC lack the long history of their biggest rivals, Chalesm and Brantisvogan, but make up for it with massive amounts of money. Bankrolled by the Confederacy's biggest financial conglomerate, Megabrantid United Financial, they have (some say) bought their way into the top flight of the SCFA, and look to be there to stay. When the chips are down they can probably out-spend any other club in the Confederacy. While some fans of older clubs may still view them as newcomers, MSC clearly has broad ambitions, and intends to cement themselves as a force to be reckoned with both in the SCFA and internationally.
Rivals: Brantisvogan (local), Chalesm (regional), Algolia (competitive), Yassaca (competitive)
Trophy Case: Challengers Cup (IFCF cycle 4), Superleague (S5, S7, S8), Confederacy Cup (S2, S7), SCFA Supercup (S6)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 1st
S6: Superleague - 3rd
S7: Superleague - 1st
S8: Superleague - 1st
S9: Superleague - 2nd

This Year: At the Firm, the name of the game is reloading the roster with young talent without any drop-off in performance. Last season saw Álvgeirsdóttir's arrival, and the gradual emergence of Dast. This time around more pieces for the future are added, with neither Jakšić nor Titov expected to break into the first 11 this season, but definitely looked to as future stalwarts on the back line. They join homegrown prospects like Kjaer and Izokina to make a bright future for the Firm. In the meantime, the increasingly agèd stars will be tasked with carrying Megabrantid to another league title push. Green's been lucky enough to avoid injury, and plays like she has another couple seasons left, and Xynat-Evela may have more than a couple. This could be the farewell tour for Gelan-Yivix, though it's too soon to say for certain what their plans will be at the end of the season. With all this talk about the age of the team's stars and their tremendous future prospects, you'd think we were discussing a club in the depths of a rebuild. Not so. Their midfield is still one of the league's best, and can dominate a match against any club when at their best. In Dast and Álvgeirsdóttir, the club hope they have found the successor duo to Takala and Teklu, not that the latter two are going anywhere just yet. If that young pair can develop the kind of easy chemistry that their midfield teammates have, then Megabrantid's future should be as bright as their present. The Firm is still a dangerous contender and will be in the thick of it until the last days of the season.

City: Jaglan, Algolia
Stadium: Koilos Field (cap. 21,500)
Nickname(s): The Rebels
Coaches:
Manager: Devane Miller (QUE)
Assistants:
Captain: Lyyti Vang
Notable Products: Rinko Nazahn, Eetu Nazarov, Ayli Orzhova
Club Summary: Sporting, like Athletic in Damogran, are the smaller, poorer club in Jaglan, and Royals fans have never let them forget it. As in so many other cases, this imbalance in spending power and prestige has become a point of pride for Sporting's supporters, and years of trash talking against a club styling itself as "Royal" have made Sporting something of a magnet for radical anti-authoritarians and anarchists. Their green and red hooped jerseys are frequently seen at political protests, and even being hustled into the back of police vans, something the club generally maintains an uneasy silence about. All publicity is good publicity though.
Rivals: Jaglan Royals (local), Emerald Coast (regional/competitive), Athletic (regional/competitive)
Trophy Case: League 1 (S7)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 16th
S6: League 1 - 9th
S7: League 1 - 1st
S8: Superleague - 13th
S9: Superleague - 14th

This Year: One transfer window removed from rescuing the Rebels from almost certain relegation, Miller now gets a chance to put his own stamp on the team, and wholesale changes are here. Shimski's departure is no shock, Sporting were never going to hold onto a player of her caliber for long, and they do well to get a good payday from Newrook in return. The real surprise is that Miller somehow wrung the same amount out of Knetyohai for Sherazi, who will no doubt be facing buckets of pressure in Chromatika. Miller calls on some connections from back home to replace those two. He is also the beneficiary of Tyra Volam's defection from the Imperium. Having the highest profile Squornshelan in the outside world as your team captain comes in handy sometimes, I guess. Their incoming transfers go to show that it really is who you know sometimes. Certain Rebels supporters will be disheartened by the departure of long-time center mid Pell Rakiric, but Volam is a definite upgrade. It's not every day that an internationally capped player from a top-40 side is available for free after all. It's still not going to be easy for the Rebels though. After all, this is still the club that went half of last season before their first win. Players like Rebsch, Brighton, Sluzarski, Poulain, and Orgatz will have to prove that they still have a place in Miller's new vision for the team, especially with plenty of young talent waiting in the wings. Still, with returning leaders like Vang and Romano added to the new talent and mindset Miller has brought, this looks like a significantly improved Rebels team, and while there may be some kinks to work out early on, they should finish in safety.

City: Syneca, Sivolvia
Stadium: Synesoft Arena (cap. 38,600)
Nickname(s): The Sea Lions
Coaches:
Manager: Daniel Lucas (CMT) 49 y/o
Assistants: Ipella Grieti (54 y/o),
Captain: Olivier Oisette
Notable Products: Lyzolda Petrov
Club Summary: The Sea Lions lived up to their reputation as one of the Confederacy's most unpredictable clubs winning the championship seemingly out of nowhere in Season 4. They've struggled to follow up on that success though. Their own youth pipeline has frequently let them down of late, but an impressive eye for talent in the transfer window has propelled them through the longest stay in the top tier of their history. Syneca's tourist image tends to be more on the side of debauchery and party culture than most cities over the border in Algolia, something the renewed presence of top-tier football can only exacerbate.
Rivals: Yassaca (regional/competitive), Brasta (regional), Hunian (regional), FC Bayfront (local)
Trophy Case: Superleague (S4)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 3rd
S6: Superleague - 2nd
S7: Superleague - 8th
S8: Superleague - 12th
S9: Superleague - 11th

This Year: Oof. A rough couple of seasons for a former league contender got Titor Hlinka fired and led to sweeping roster changes. Daniel Lucas now takes the helm, and has the difficult task of bringing the Sea Lions back into contention, though a top-half finish will be the short term goal. He inherits a team that's decent across the board, but underachieving, with a definite lack of the kind of standout stars they had back in their top-five days. Starting from the back out, Mortenson is a good keeper, and the defensive line in front of him is serviceable, but age has crept up on them. The addition of Laris Argall doesn't help their average age any, but he is decent as a one-season stopgap option to replace the departing Kazarov. Delu's best days are also definitely behind him. In the reorganized midfield, there's more reason for hope. New arrival Mare Si has the Sea Lions excited about the future, though Baghdasar is a bit less certain an option beside her. In place of Ruoho, who utterly failed to find the career redeption he was looking for in Syneca, the Sea Lions, perhaps finally admitting their smaller-market status, pick up a much cheaper option in Bradshaw, who they hope can impart some of Megabrantid's winning culture here. Malicki and Michiki are definite question marks. Neither has been able to find form to match their class while at Syneca, and this season may very well determine if these two have futures at the club, or if their talents will be put to better use elsewhere. The shift in formation may do each of them some good though, as they will be looked upon much more as attackers, rather than confined to mainly serving the buildup to the forwards. Up front, Finnan has been enough of a bright spot since his arrival to survive the purge of excess strikers, while Irigon and Ozog are relegated to the bench for the time being. Ozog is probably the brightest future star on the bench, one of the very few good products of Syneca's academy in recent years. Lucas will doubtless want to concentrate on building up the club's youth program to help with his rebuild. Barring some instant resurgence from the returning players, it looks like he has a long task ahead.

Club Summary: Traal is not an easy place to live. The harbor is icebound over half of the year, and the retractable roof of the Flanoil Arena end ups closed more often than not. Despite that, Traal Athletics has survived as a club since well before the war, and is thriving today, due in large part to an excellent scouting department and a front office that maintains good business relationships with other teams around the country. Accordingly, Traal is often able both to identify young talent in lower league, and to secure transfer agreements with those clubs. Frequently, Traal reciprocates by sending its own developing talent out on loan deals to teams it has bought players from. They have a particularly good relationship with League 2 side, Porters. While Traal's lower operating budget necessitates more frequent changes in personnel, the one constant is that no matter how outspent or outmatched Traal seem to be, they always find a way to contend with the richer clubs of Algolia and Megabrantis. This is probably owed in large part to the loyalty of manager Daror, who is widely regarded as the best Confederate manager there is.
Rivals: Brantisvogan (competitive), Lublova Reds (competitive), Flania Traal (local)
Tropy Case: League 1 (S1), Confederacy Cup (S1, S3), SCFA Supercup (S4)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 8th
S6: Superleague - 5th
S7: Superleague - 5th
S8: Superleague - 8th
S9: Superleague - 7th

This Year: The Munib era has ended, and the Oleb era appears nearly done with as well at Traal. What of the Daror era? Together with Ifrun Melkum of Yassaca and Dolvin Antal of Algolia, he is one of just three managers to have held tenure at their current club for ten seasons or more. Daror is also the oldest manager in the Superleague by a significant margin, turning 70 before the season ends. His legacy, winning the domestic double in the first SCFA season, keeping the Oilers in the top half for nine seasons despite being regularly outspent by the competition, and managing the Confederate national team in its debut cycle, is secure. What is not is Traal's status as a perennial title contender. Over the past five seasons, they've made just two appearances in the Challengers' Cup, and never been a serious threat to win the league, more often finishing closer to the bottom half than to first place. In all this doom and gloom there are positives though. The team has found a couple worthy successors to Oleb in Kim and Marko, which has to be comforting for supporters given how many talented young defenders have been allowed to leave in recent years. Reuter Storsjo is also still an excellent fullback, among the best in the league. The defense will do fine, even with the relatively inexperienced Kranat between the sticks. The midfield is also decent. Neptune hangs up her boots, but Mlynarek will be a fine replacement, having had plenty of time to prepare for the starting role. Out left, Vilhajalmsson is among the better left wingers in the league, and will provide plenty of crosses for new frontman Maktar. In the center, neither Arnold nor O Connaíl is going to take over a match, but neither is really a weakness. The bench, on the other hand, is fairly shallow, with a fair amount of experience, but few players of starting or near-starting caliber. Koppel is an exception, and Prandl shows some definite promise, but the first 11 will be doing the heavy lifting here, make no mistake. It's a team without any glaring weak point, but one that has simply failed to keep up with the rate of improvement of the league around them. Traal are no worse than they were ten seasons ago hoisting the league trophy, but everyone else is much better now.

Club Summary: United are the slightly larger, slightly older club, but in almost every regard are equivalent to City in footballing terms. Their support comes more from the suburbs, and the West side of the city in particular. Those fans are in a perpetual state of denial about their relation to V City, firmly believing that their club's true rivals are teams like Chalesm and Royals. The fact of the matter is that United and City are two peas in a pod, and seem destined to wrestle with each other in the bottom half of the Superleague for all time. It'll take something special to separate the two, and the haughtiness of certain United fans stands in defiance of reality.
Rivals:Viltvodle City (local), Chalesm (regional), Olympia Arkintoofle (regional)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S4)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 12th
S6: Superleague - 15th
S7: League 1 - 12th
S8: League 1 - 2nd
S9: Superleague - 5th

This Year: While the jury is out on Lublova, most pundits have already decided that Viltvodle United are not for real. With Lynul-Zorno Dar preparing for their second season on the touchline for the Hornets following the best finish in the club's history, all the doubters have entrenched themselves once again. One has to admit they have something of a point. It seems unlikely that the cobbled-together back line and journeyman goalkeeper Widberg can repeat their performance conceding fewer goals than any other team. Up front though, one certainly expects a repeat of being among the lowest scoring teams. Prantist has the killer instinct one wants in a striker, but Nedzukova and Nurmela are not exactly the kind of dynamic wingers you'd pick to provide her with regular service. The midfield trio still look like the team's strength. Luk and Mishima formed a quick partnership after the Hinodeijn's arrival last season, and the team should benefit from that again. If the answer at center back doesn't emerge quickly though, Mishima may be pressed into service on the back line, leaving someone from the bench to step up. Without much budget to reinforce the team, Lynul-Zorno has resorted to some minor shuffling instead, bargain hunting in League 1 instead of hitting the international market. The Evela-Dwada and Rynyr-Xertal connection should be a source of strength for the back line once again, but expect the elder of the pair to play fewer minutes than last season. Raovisak gets the nod for the time being, but isn't the most compelling candidate for the starting job long-term. Muhammad is raw, but with Rynyr-Xertal for a mentor, could make the transition to the senior team quickly. Overall, while one has to give them some credit for last season's amazing performance, it's still very difficult not to predict a certain reversion to the mean, and a respectable, but much less exciting final result.

Manager: Irfun Melkum (55 y/o)
Assistants: Zoya Mejias (56 y/o), Housam Voyels (40 y/o)
Captain: Linus Rallyton
Notable Products: Jirar Lomidan, Selvala Tabur
Club Summary: The highest profile team in Sivolvia have only gotten bigger and better in recent years. While many neutrals may not enjoy watching their unexciting style of play, the club and its supporters don't care at all. Under Irfun Melkum, probably second only to Lopal Daror as Confederate defensive gurus go, they have developed a very specific brand of football, and stick to it. The Tigers aim to keep possession no matter what, and agressively close down to regain the ball when they lose it. Opposing attacks are contained to the wings, while high-danger areas in the middle of the field are clogged with defenders.
Rivals: Syneca (regional, competitive), Brasta (regional), Megabrantid (competitive)
League Form:

S6: Superleague - 4th
S7: Superleague - 2nd

S9: Superleague - 1st

This Year: It finally all came together for the Tigers. Bit by bit they built this team, getting better and better, and it finally culminated in the long-sought league championship, powered by the defensive prowess of Harkhan and company, strong possession game of Rallyton and the midfield, and scoring touch of the newly arrived Ødegaard. The only loss in the off-season is the departure of Ahlzweig. It's easy to forget sometimes with recent results that Yassaca are not a particularly rich team, and while they've managed to keep many of their most important players on club-friendly contracts, often it's members of the supporting cast who have to be let loose. Both Keresh and Harakhan will get opportunities to show that they belong in the first 11 in her place. Karman, fresh off the youth team's league title could also factor in. In midfield, Coleman and Stern look to be slowly nearing the end of their respective runs with the club, and the acquisition of Hensha Rockets product Niemi shows that Melkum is definitely keeping an eye to the future. Rallyton, captain for both club and country will once again be both brain and engine for the Tigers, and overshadows Xhose, who missed out on the opportunity to suit up for his country as they host the World Cup, perhaps unlucky that hosting meant there was no opportunity to prove himself in qualifying. Will there be some extra motivation for the Chromatik to prove he deserves that shot next time around? Could be. Up front the division of labor is very clear. Verhulst is the deep-lying striker, dropping back to provide passing opportunities, pressing hard to win the ball high up the field, and just general working her ass off. Ødegaard is the trigger man, the most frequent focus on which the Tigers' attacks converge. Returning nearly the entire team, and with no reason to think many of them have regressed at all, Yassaca have every chance to become the second club to repeat as league champions.

City: Arkintoofle, Megabrantis
Stadium: ArkArena (cap. 27,300)
Nickname(s): The Sharks

Assistants:Adana Rebko (59 y/o), Kagamar Dalvir (52 y/o)
Captain: Priit Korrapati
Notable Products: Tudan Povarnin, Jaska Povarnin
Club Summary: The original Arkintoofle United fell apart during the chaos of the war. They were never a particularly good club, but had a fair amount of history. The current incarnation was refounded by a prominent group of Arkintoofle citizens, and has enjoyed some modest success. Ark U are usually fairly popular among neutrals, many of whom would like to see them supplant Olympia as the city's best team, something they've managed over the past few seasons. It remains to be seen if they can maintain that in the long term.
Trophy Case: N/A
Rivals: Olympia Arkintoofle (local), UFC Flamarion (regional)
League Form:
S5: League 1    - 2nd
S6: Superleague - 10th
S7: Superleague - 15th
S8: League 1 - 3rd
S9: Superleague - 15th

This Year: Last season was a big disappointment for the Sharks, but the board has kept faith with Kadmyan for the time being. A few important players have not, though. Sivitri heads for the A-League, Braquaval's release clause triggers, and both Vinogradov and Arnessen bolt for up-and-coming Revolution. The fact ehy would jump ship for a club that's only just risen to the same level that United have fallen to should be concerning, and one wonders if Kadmyan is losing his sway over the locker room. They'll be a pretty young team for the coming season, and probably look to spend a little time rebuilding in League 1 before having a realistic chance at promotion. Team captain and defensive leader Bontu announced his retirement, and with a much more average option in Lachtna playing keeper, this team is going to concede goals, they just are. Luckily, they should be decent at scoring them as well, with the veteran Voldaren sticking around, and Karimi joining from the Royals bench. Korrapati also has another season of experience under her belt, and looks to be a much more mature playmaker this season. It's mid-table for the Sharks for now, and their future depends on what Kadmyan can do to develop and supplement his young core. If he is losing the team, and there are further defections, we could see them slip down into danger of another drop before long.

Club Summary: Canyons has a reputation as a club for hippies and hyperenvironmental nutjobs which is not entirely undeserved. It's a fashionable jersey to be seen wearing if you're a conservation-minded celebrity, but their real fanbase is smallish, vastly outnumbered by HDCFC supporters. Having neither long tradition nor great riches, Canyons have a massive inferiority complex directed at their larger rival.

League Form:

S8: League 2 - 2nd
S9: League 1 - 9th

This Year: A good performance from Canyons last seasons likely has larger clubs with managers on the hot seat eying Aseyneddin with great interest. If he can get another good mid-table finish from this team, he'll likely have his choice of job offers at the end of the season. Unfortunately for that hope, the team has lost its most dynamic attacker, with Arkhipov poached away to help with Olympia's promotion efforts. The remainder of the team is . . . not particularly impressive. The attack will still be decent, with Powell and Evzenic as its main weapons, and Inareddrin back for another season as the pivot. Canyons were definitely more than the sum of their parts last season, but it's going to be a difficult task to repeat that, particularly without Pharlain and Arkhipov.

City: Golgafrincham, Megabrantis
Stadium: Reinallt Arena (cap. 41,230)
Nickname(s): Archers
Coaches:
Manager: Andas Famt (61 y/o)
Assistants: Aryel Tevesh (50 y/o), Obeka Harrion (46 y/o)
Captain: Andrejs Katona
Notable Products: Bedros Torluk
Club Summary: Located in the far northeast of Megabrantis, Golgafrincham is relatively isolated. The densely forested hills and gorges of the Han Dold canyonlands to the east, the vast expanse of the Brantid plain to the south and west, and the forbidding taiga that mantles the foothills of the Northern Reach mean that there are very few places you can easily or quickly get to. Hensha, to the West on the Molvanian border, and Rudlit to the Northwest in West Flania are the only easy drives, though the winding route east to Han Dold City is beautiful. As a result, Golgafrincham has developed a distinct culture of individualism and self-sufficiency as compared to the rest of the Confederacy. Fan culture in Golgafrincham is very much concerned with food, and it is not unusual to see an entire cow or sheep being roasted on match day.
Trophy Case: League 2 (S2)
Rivals: Hensha (regional), Rockets (regional), Rudlit Rovers (regional), Rudlit Miners (regional)
League Form:
S5: League 2 - 6th
S6: League 2 - 3rd
S7: League 1 - 13th
S8: League 1 - 13th
S9: League 1 - 7th

This Year: The Archers sold off a few unneeded players and plundered some new ones from the relegated Flamarion sides. The midfield looks significantly strong, with Katona shifting forward to accomodate Hedberg's arrival, and the seasoned veteran Skepian taking Balogh's place out right. At the back, Torosian was a big upgrade last season, and should only be better with experience. Up front, Nazarov looks ready to start taking on a little larger role in the attack, and should see plenty of playing time in relief of Clannadh. Will it be enough for Famt to chart a return course to the Superleague? Probably not, but Golgafrincham are definitely shaping up like a top-half side again, though still not quite a true contender.

Club Summary: Han Dold City are a middle of the pack type team renowned for the outrageous behavior of their fans, who are known for impossibly loud chants, and outrageous stunts at tailgate and match-watching parties. A match without at least a dozen folding-table related hospitalizations is a dull affair in Han Dold City.

This Year: Oh man, just when the Wolfpack looked like they had built themselves into a promotion contender it all came apart at the seams. The worst league position in recent memory, saved from the ignominy of the relegation playoff by a scant handful of points. Scordo got his marching orders, as did pretty much his entire staff. The team will bring in former Chalesm boss and Superleague champion Kotsyubov to try to right the ship without a full rebuild. Even so, there are departures. Zduncyk and Raktsov decided they'd had enough of football altogether after that disgraceful season, and Krastev bolted for Tikariot. While the Wolfpack managed to keep their midfield trio of Jens, Somhair, and Kahle all together, they did lose an excellent future player in Bernat. Up front, Kasun finds himself demoted, and will likely be one of the next out the door, and disgruntled Svetranj striker Soucek is ready to play on a team that can actually hold possession for a change. Finally, the team has brought in a complete unknown in Greggy Rick, a Freeporter pony slated to replace Krastev. As the first of his species in the SCFA, there'll be a lot of attention on the youngster, so one hopes he's prepared for the pressure.

City:Hensha, Megabrantis
Stadium: Malgacorp Arena (cap. 29,350)
Nickname(s): The Navies
Coaches:
Manager: Marith Alumau (51 y/o)
Assistants: Bennett Petry (41 y/o), Eoin Grizdek (54 y/o)
Captain: Tuco Durrig
Club Summary: Hensha is a club facing something of an identity crisis. Before now, they didn't really have one. Picture the most boring, average football club in a small boring city where not much out of the ordinary ever happens. Yeah, that was Hensha. Then, out of nowhere, two seasons removed from a brief stint in the top tier, Hensha imploded, finished dead last, and went down to the third tier for a season. Heads rolled, players left, and the team clawed its way back up. Now they'll have to figure out which club they are. The complacent, empty uniforms that got relegated twice in three years, or the hard-working side that fixed it.
Trophy Case: League 1 (S3)
Rivals: Rockets (local), Golgafrincham (regional), Hunian (random)
League Form:
S5: League 1    - 3rd
S6: Superleague - 14th
S7: League 1 - 9th
S8: League 1 - 16th
S9: League 2 - 3rd

This Year: Now this is how you tune up a newly promoted team to play at at higher level. After only just earning their promotion back to League 1, the Navies sell off a couple supporting players before dumping all the proceeds and more into some big upgrades. Lagounov, denied playing time at Chalesm, looks set to break out against League 1 defenses. Hamalainen's distribution capabilities will help him do it, as will Tavoc's shiftiness down the wing. Now, one can easily dismiss the signings of Tavoc and Hamalainen as overpaying for overrated players, after all they were signed in the same situation to no avail by Svetran and Flamarion City a season ago. Here in Hensha though, they're only being asked to be part of the supporting cast, not the stars of the show. The back line, anchored by Durrig, looks capable enough, and while Hensha aren't about to make a push for the promotion, they should be able to must a respectable finish.

Notable Products: Sauli Somogyi
Club Summary: Hensha's location far inland in the rocky highlands on the Molvanian-Brantid border made it ideal to some as a location for a ballistic missile base. The Confederacy has long since done away with such weapons but the club, named in a fit of patriotic fervor, remains. More recently, Hensha has carved out a limited role in the Confederate space program, and the club has latched onto this more palatable imagery. The smaller club in Hensha, Rockets have had a surge of good form lately that has brought them up to even footing with FC Hensha.
Trophy Case: League 2 (S7)
Rivals: Hensha (local), Golgafrincham (regional), Rudlit Rovers (regional), Rudlit Miners (regional)

This Year: Losing Niemi is a big blow, as Rockets supporters hoped she'd be the leader of their midfield once Kuri is ready to call it quits. Alas, it's hard to compete with an offer from the reigning champs. With the bench somewhat thinned out, the age of some of the team's most important players could become a concern. One such player will already be gone. Wily striker Koeru has retired, leaving Davtyan as the best striker on the team, and the other spot up front likely to be filled by a rotation of players. In terms of those veterans who remain, Torluk and Urtzenic at the back, and Kuri in midfield are vital leaders this team simply cannot do without. If any of them misses time due to fatigue or injury, Rockets' performance will suffer as a result.

Manager: Antira Horgall (54 y/o)
Assistants: Soheyla Zaglul (54 y/o), Indra Zagaruka (55 y/o)
Captain: Geralf Zunic
Notable Products: Aram Gnau, Cordrut Malanta
Club Summary: Hunian are a club that have struggled to make a mark on their local Algolian football landscape. They have proven unable to compete on the same level as the Big Three (Algolia, Damogran, and Royals) and even the second level trio of Athletic, Sporting, and Emerald Coast have also left them behind. They remain a cut above the likes of Vassilian and Halfarian, but are definitely a distant seventh-best when ranking the teams in the state. At least there's plenty of excellent Hunian wine around to drown their sorrows.
Trophy Case: N/A
Rivals: Vassilian City (regional), Emerald Coast (regional), Hensha (random), Syneca (regional)
League Form:
S5: League 1    - 11th
S6: League 1 - 13th
S7: League 1 - 8th
S8: League 1 - 9th
S9: League 1 - 5th

This Year: Hunian had a solid showing last time out, not at all far off the pace for promotion. The question facing them now is, how much longer can Hjort and Yarritu keep this up? Are they confident enough in their attacking depth? Clearly they must be, as the only new faces on the team at this time are the center back, Palk, and youth graduate Baran. They do have one of the most experienced reserves of any League 1 side, but the dropoff in talent is significant, and unless someone heretofore unheralded steps up in a big way, there will be a fair number of matches where the Seagulls struggle to create chances. Their strong defense will help them get away with that, but it might not be enough to make the leap to being a promotion contender.

Captain: Grenzo Borkowski
Notable Products: Olev Clegg, Rasim Orgatz, Damaris Nebojsic, Polter Yndel, Zemen Ystrad
Club Summary: Olympia were founded not long before the war by the Imperial mayor. Accordingly, they were hated by most of the Confederacy, and have not been wholly able to shake off the association with far-right groups and authoritarianism, especially since some of their ultras groups are known for chants and banners that are politically incorrect to say the least (the club has banned several of these groups from matches but they often find ways to sneak in). Despite all this, their support is strong in and around Arkintoofle. Of late, they've had a reputation for badly behaved players, and lackluster performance on the field, though that tide may finally be turning.
Trophy Case: League 1 (S6)
Rivals: Arkintoofle United (local), UFC Flamarion (regional), Viltvodle City (regional), Viltvodle United (regional)
League Form:
S5: League 1    - 9th
S6: League 1 - 1st
S7: Superleague - 16th
S8: League 1 - 10th
S9: League 1 - 4th

This Year: This is the season for Olympia, or at least that's what their supporters all hope. Before age takes too much of a toll on Borkowski and Petzet, their making their push to return to the Superleague, bringing in Arkhipov as understudy cum successor to Heltain. At the back, one former Yassaca center back replaces another, and Ahlzweig will immediately be one of the best defenders in the League. She and Haldon will make this team very difficult to score on, even if Scarzam isn't the best shot-stopper they could ask for. Up front, Irwinn will get his chance after Kokko failed to impress last season. Make no mistake, this team is good, and they've given themselves every chance to be in that promotion fight with the other favorites.

Stadium:
Nickname(s):
Coaches:
Manager: Arastu Bolkva (53 y/o)
Assistants: Marjut Grahn (49 y/o), Hannes Ravn (50 y/o)
Captain: Jaeduke Arwin
Club Summary: By far the smaller of Chalesm's two pro clubs, Revolution's founding dates to just a few years after the War. Contrary to popular myth, it was not founded by veterans of the war per se, but rather by a diverse group of urban Chalesmites and named in commemoration of the successful struggle for independence. Revolution, then, has always had a left-wing image. Antiauthoritarian and egalitarian causes garner the support of its members, and it is almost expected that the Revolution ultras will have a new chant for whichever politician has drawn their ire at each week's match.
Trophy Case: League 2 (S9), League 3 (S4, S8)
Rivals: Railways FC (regional), Chalesm (local), Sporting Jaglan (friendly)
League Form:
S5: League 2    - 10th
S6: League 2 - 10th
S7: League 2 - 14th
S8: League 3 - 1st
S9: League 2 - 1st

This Season: Holy shit. Where the hell did this Revolution team come from? Seasons spent in the lower half of League 2 with occasional trips down to League 3, and suddenly they earn two promotions in consecutive seasons? And win the league both times? They're the second team to win any SCFA league in their first season after promotion since Syneca took the Superleague on their first try back in season 4. This team is led by UFC Flamarion product and former Royals and Rangers midfielder Jaeduke Arwin, who must surely be in his last season by now. Olympia Arkintoofle youth product Dorea Bartonek supports him in the midfield, but much of the rest of their team has been homegrown to this point. For the coming season, some reinforcements are needed though. They cashed in on the excitement surrounding their meteoric rise to attract some really solid players, most visibly up front where Bonartt and Vinogradov will form a new, young striker duo. Arnessen will bring some valuable experience to the back line.

Coaches:
Manager: Mirko Hodulov (45 y/o)
Assistants: Bohuslav Nosek (57 y/o), Veszna Salamon (40 y/o)

Club Summary The regional capital of Eastern Molvania, Sasava nonetheless plays second fiddle to nearby Sjerezo in most things, including the stature of its football club. Olympia style themselves as a club with a lot of history, and to be fair they have been around for a very long time. They've hardly won a damn thing in all that time though, aside from a few East Molvanian state championships. In non-football areas, Sasava is probably best known to the rest of the Confederacy as the gateway to the Molvanian wine country.

Manager: Suljo Kabagenyi (59 y/o)
Assistants: Furran Yakrai (53 y/o), Eitza Relhan (55 y/o)
Captain:
Notable Products: Keshav Rallinaitis, Ikra Yonte
Club Summary: Central would like to consider themselves as a part of a Sivolvian "Big-4" along with Yassaca, Syneca, and Brasta. Very few would consider them on a level with those three, having scarcely even sniffed the top tier, let alone been there. Central are basically the definition of an average second-tier club, always finishing somewhere mid-table.
Trophy Case: N/A
Rivals: Yassaca (local), Brasta (regional), Syneca (regional), Bayfront (regional), Always Ready (regional)

S5: League 1 - 10th
S6: League 1 - 10th
S7: League 1 - 11th
S8: League 1 - 12th
S9: League 1 - 8th

This Year: The Shudet era has ended, with the twins having spent their entire careers with Central. In the short term this is going to lead to a fair amount of disruption at the back. It's unclear whether new arrival Kven, or homegrown prospect Terijoki will replace Faran on the backline, and Tilki is something of a stopgap solution to fill the gap in goal left by Nyoman. In the long term though, the reality is that the Shudets were long past their best days, and their retirment frees up the Budgies to make a few moves. The biggest of these is the arrival of Klaniczay from Damogran, which will instantly kick-start an attack that was very strong in midfield, particularly on the wings, but sometimes lacked that final scoring touch. Whether they can repeat their first top half finish in years will depend on how quickly the defense can find its new normal, but if they lock things in early, this team could be surprisingly strong.

Assistants: Karmela Adzianic (56 y/o), Ignat Tzoric (52 y/o)
Captain: Zelso Cervkle
Notable Products: Daczibog Ketadzic
Club Summary: Sjerezo, located in the Eastern Molvanian highlands, is neither the state's third largest (4th), nor its third most important city (5th at best), but has lately become home to its third-best football team. Interblag and Lublova are far and away the best two, but Sjerezo have definitely been the best of the rest, ahead of teams from larger cities or provincial captials like Svetranj, Sasava, Bardjov and Dzrebo. They have established themselves in large part thanks to the capable leadership of Viazdek, and a knack for producing homegrown talent that is good enough to keep them competitive in League 1, but not so flashy as to draw too much attention from larger clubs.
Trophy Case: N/A
Rivals: Sasava (regional), Svetranj (regional), Interblag (historic), Mukjus Power (regional)
League Form:
S5: League 1 - 12th
S6: League 1 - 8th
S7: League 1 - 3rd
S8: League 1 - 6th
S9: League 1 - 6th

This Year: Sjerezo would have dearly liked to keep Viadzo around, but weren't able to make the difficult decision to put her into the first 11 ahead of the team captain. Now she's gone. The immediate impact won't be too terrible; Cervkle is still a good player and important leader. Still, when he hangs up his boots in a season or two, they'll be looking to an unproven youngster, Havryluk, to step up instead of a proven player in her prime. Still, Sjerezo is a solid team, returning most of last season's starters, and replacing those they lost with capable home-grown talent. Novacek looks to get the nod to replace Farnau for the time being, but keep an eye on the youth graduate Buras.

City: Viltvodle, Megabrantis
Stadium: Viltvodle Civic Arena (cap. 58,300)
Nickname(s): The Borderers
Coaches:
Manager: Brio Yafai (44 y/o)
Assistants: Corina Pobuda (51 y/o), Oroitz Loridag (47 y/o)

Club Summary: If we're charting club territory in Viltvodle, City own the urban center, appropriately enough. The club's inspiration comes from a military unit which was, by tradition, recruited from the citizens of medieval Viltvodle to guard the frontier against invasion by Jaglan. By the modern era, the Viltvodle Borderers had become a ceremonial guard unit, populated with rich scions and wealthy social climbers, and was abolished after the Imperial conquest. The club was founded a few years later, hearkening back to the original, urban working-class origins of the Borderers. Despite their roots as the "little brother" to United, they've been around long enough that they are of roughly equal stature as a club, so much so that the Viltvodle Derby, though it doesn't have the same championship implications as other Confederate rivalries, is often among the closest and most contentious matches of the year.
Rivals:Viltvodle United (local), Jaglan Royals (historic), Olympia Arkintoofle (regional)
League Form:
S5: Superleague - 13th
S6: Superleague - 16th
S7: League 1 - 7th
S8: League 1 - 1st
S9: Superleauge - 16th

This Year: Kajtazovic gets canned, as expecrted. What was not expected is that the junior of his assistant, Brio Yafai gets the promotion. She brings in former Sporting and Han Dold City assistants Pobuda and Loridag to assist her, so who really knows what to expect from this management team tactically. As for the roster, two words: fire sale. Well, maybe not quite full on fire sale, but the Borderers lose almost their entire back line in a single window. Orzhova and Petrov net them a cool five mil and chance en route to foreign leagues, while Brutsky brings a more modest fee to stay in the Superleague. They reload by snapping up a refugee from the relegation of UFC, and bringing home the former Damogran center back Mamoona Acuff, who was available due to the dissolution of the league system in Mriin. The midfield returns, mostly because none of them really drew much attention from anywhere. The team has a few decent players, but no one exciting, and while they'll definitely benefit from not having to face top level opposition, they don't look poised to dominate the league by any stretch.

Club Summary: A distinctly smaller club than their cross-town rivals, Rangers, Wavel AC have nonetheless built themselves into a perennial contender in League 1. In fact, they've finished ahead of Rangers more often than not in the Superleague era, something they don't let their larger rivals forget. While the entire state of Han Dold is more interested in ice hockey as a rule, any meeting between one of their big four football clubs is a major affair.
Trophy Case: N/A
Rivals: Wavel Rangers (local), Han Dold City (regional), Canyons (regional)
League Form:
S5: League 1 - 4th
S6: League 1 - 4th
S7: League 1 - 6th
S8: League 1 - 4th
S9: League 1 - 3rd

This Year: Tantalizingly close for the Evergreens last season, and they've loaded up for another shot at the league. The lack of a solid promotion candidate among the relegated sides might leave a path open for them. While they return most of their team, they're pinning a lot of their hopes on Aatu Ruoho, who failed to do much with Syneca last season. They're banking that he can make a bigger impact against League 1 defenders. They'll certainly have plenty of experience on the roster, though unlike some of the more elderly teams in League 1, they back up their first eleven with solid depth. Otsing joins from Megabrantid to fill in for Clegg, who has definitely lost a step. Erskine and Leggit aren't spectacular, but are good role players in Yanig's tactical system. Up front, Hendry and Ness have developed an unspoken understanding of each other's play style. Most of all though, this is a team that smothers its opponents, keeping the ball away from them and winning it back at the earliest opportunity. They'll be that again, and despite some major upgrades at striker around the league, it's hard to see any team scoring reliably against the Evergreens when they're on form.

Club Summary: Rangers have always been most concerned with beating Han Dold City, and trying to finish ahead of them. That was before Wavel AC got good though, and now it's a three way fight for supremacy. Rangers have always been a pretty decent second-tier team, but never quite seem to find their way all the way to those coveted top spots. Despite their outdoorsy emblem and name, their "Grove" of a stadium can be found right downtown on the riverfront, with carefully landscaped plantings the only nature present.
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S5)
Rivals: Wavel AC (local), Han Dold City (regional), Canyons (regional)

S5: League 1 - 6th
S6: League 1 - 7th
S7: League 1 - 5th
S8: League 1 - 5th
S9: League 1 - 10th

This Year: Things just seem kind of tired and uninspired at Killough Grove. Vannifar is a good addition, sure, and their defense will be improved, but Haag seems much too content with a roster that slipped out of the top half, and has never finished better than fifth under his management. Yndel's resurgence has been a bright spot, and he'll be a key contributor again, but the goals have to come from somewhere if this team is going to catch up with their cross-town rivals, and it's not clear where that might be. Their depth in midfield and attack is mostly teenagers. Some show some promise, but none looks to be the next Damnagoras-style wunderkind. Decent team, but they need something more if they're going to be contenders again.

Club Summary: The very definition of a blue collar club, founded by dock workers, for dock workers, their colors are derived from those of the Zarss Port Authority. Their modest finances make it difficult for them to retain talent for very long, but they do have a good youth academy, and are generally regarded as one of the better teams in the lower leagues at identifying and developing talent. They have something of an unofficial pipeline relationship with Traal Athletics.

This Year: It's all about Kylar's arrival this season. The team's undergone a little bit of tweaking, but is largely the same except for the former Megabrantid man up front. That is to say, apart from him, the team just isn't very good. An uncharitable observer might say of their starting eleven "there's one has-been and everyone else is a never-was." Good thing we're not uncharitable. For instance, it's definitely to early to term Alinejad and Rantaa as never-was, since neither is even 25 yet. Probably pretty fair for the rest of them though. Luckily, they do have some promising talent on the bench. Halas, Yllonen, Tivadar, and Kontiola in particular. If the kids are ready to play, this team could make a little noise, but I don't think they're there yet. Next season should be a good one for Porters, if they can survive this season. They should be just able to do so.

SCFA Season 10: International Domestic Early Rounds and Supercup

IFCF Challengers' Cup
(OME)               Ever Grande    3–2    Viltvodle United          (SRS)   2–2   1–0
(TMB) Lakewood United 4–5 Algolia AC (SRS) 3–2 1–3

Cup Winners' Cup
(SRS)                 Lublova Reds    1–1 a  Sportiva Montelcampo         (SOR)   1–1   0–0

IFCF Rising Stars Cup
(SRS)                FC Yassaca    0–2    Crystopolis City          (CRY)   0–2   0–0
AND THEY'RE OFF! Or rather we should say, "and they're out" in everyone's case except Algolia's. The Suntigers manage two important away goals in the first leg and manage to hold the Tumbrans to just one in the return. New acquisition Coronello had a miracle clearance off the line late. A good first installment toward paying off his transfer fee. Meanwhile in Viltvodle, the Hornets looked flat, and were unable to muster any kind of offense at all, after having already done the hard part in Omerica with a draw and two away goals. Lublova were also very much chagrined at being unable to score in their own second leg, being completely shut down in San Ortelio. Yassaca's youth squad just looked outclassed, as the Crystopolis side played with poise and consistency that belied their tender years, not allowing the junior tigers a single goal over two legs.

IFCF Champions' League
(VIL)              Yeaddin Owls    2–2 p  Megabrantid SC            (SRS)   1–1   1–1  (2–4 pen)

IFCF Challengers' Cup
(ZIW)           Tamaria Strikas    2–0    Algolia AC                (SRS)   1–0   1–0

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
(EUR)                   Brigham    5–3    Wavel AC                  (SRS)   4–1   1–2
A bit of an embarrassing result for Algolia, whose glory days fade a little further into the rearview each season it seems. A pair of dreary 1-0 losses does not inspire confidence for the coming season. At least the defense has performed decently well to this point, a stark reversal of last season's trend. Tossed into the wolf pit that is the Non-Champions' Path of the Champions' League, Megabrantid acquitted themselves well over two legs, and some clutch penalty conversions from veterans like Takala, Teklu, and Gelan-Yivix saw them through to the next round. Wavel, down in the Liga B, were simply overpowered by the opposition, and all but eliminated already heading into the home leg.

IFCF Champions' League
(SRS)                FC Yassaca    1–3    Freeport United           (FPT)   0–2   1–1
(CRY) Crystopolis City 3–2 Megabrantid SC (SRS) 1–2 2–0

IFCF Challengers' Cup
(SRS)              Lublova Reds    6–4    Sporting Ceneisis         (AFT)   2–2   4–2

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
(SRS)                 FC Brasta    5–2    FC Nüvedorf               (SAL)   4–1   1–1
A disastrous first leg for Yassaca, shut out 2-0 on their own ground and losing Jurgen Stern to injury just before halftime. The veteran attacker was fortunate though, as was his team. Though he didn't return to the loss, he was able to play in the second leg, and scored the team's only goal. A 2-0 home loss against equine opposition was also what sank Megabrantid, though they will be much more disappointed after taking a one-goal lead away from the first leg in Crystopolis. On the Liga B side stage, Brasta absolutely blasted Nüvedorf in the first leg, and the dispirited Saltsteadish could only muster one of the four goals they'd have needed to force extra time in the second.

IFCF Challengers' Cup
(OME)           AS Républicains    0–3    FC Yassaca                (SRS)   0–2   0–1 
(SRS) Lublova Reds 3–1 Bassabook Old Boys (ZWZ) 2–0 1–1
(KSK) Latrobe Athletic 4–3 Megabrantid SC (SRS) 3–3 1–0

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
(XAN)              Rapido Burns    2–2 a  Athletic Damogran         (SRS)   2–1   0–1
(CMT) Umbar p 2–2 FC Brasta (SRS) 2–0 0–2 (4–3 pen)
A lot of teams in action, as Yassaca sorted themselves out and blanked Républicains over both legs. Lubova's performance was just as impressive. Clubs from Zwangzug are always tough opposition, whether we meet them in the IFCF or the FFI. The Reds played a near perfect match in the opener, and fought to a draw in the return, inching closer to their first ever IFCF group stage. Megabrantid, on the other hand, once again let themselves down in a home second leg after being in a good position after the first. This time a 3-3 draw in Kelssek left the Firm needing only a low-scoring draw or narrow victory to advance. Instead, they get clean-sheeted, and are done with international competitions before the season begins. In the Liga B, "narrow" was the word of the day, with Brasta going out against Umbar on penalties after trading 2-0 home victories. Musieri's skyed effort will haunt her for a while. In Damogran, Athletic eke past Rapido by virtue of a crucial away goal in the first leg, and a clutch stoppage time goal from Paecht.

IFCF Challengers' Cup

(SRS)              Lublova Reds  p 1–1    Highmark City Blues       (QOD)  (1–1 FT · 4–3 pen)
Lublova and Yassaca both notch big upsets againt formidable opposition. North Hall are no Northern Union, it's true, but a top 50 side nonetheless. CAP are better even than that, or so say the coefficients. The Reds and Tigers disagreed. Whether they were thinking of their own fixture congestion, or simply overlooking their opponents, North Hall were not at all prepared for the opening leg, and Siegel and Wojewodka ran absolutely rampant. Lublova's back line, bent but didn't break, and kept the Brenecians from making up the deficit, with the help of some impotant saves by Drenel. For the Tigers, a close fought loss in Pasarga gave them two away goals heading to the second leg, but they ended up not needing to resort to tiebreakers, as the back line silenced Paulinthal's attack.
Can't let the IFCF teams have all the fun though, as Royals got started in the Vilitan Cove. Wait, the Vilitan Cove Invitational? I thought it got cancelled this year. Guess I was wrong. In any case, Royals strolled to a dominating aggregate win over Holloway. Ridenton, Rai, and Nagant might as well have written their names on the ball for the amount of time it spent in their possession. In FFI play, Megabrantid cruised, but Lublova, resting a few starters, very nearly went home embarrassingly early, with a coolly taken penalty by Caldryn sending them onward.

Yassaca 1–0 Lublova Reds
The traditional start of the SCFA season involved two teams that have already been quite busy this season. Lublova and Yassaca both started play in the IFCF and FFI weeks ago, and both sides are still alive in multiple tournaments as the beginning of the season and IFCF group stages loom. Perhaps it was understandable then, with such fixture congestion to look forward to, that neither team fielded the entirety of their "A Team." Yassaca held out Stern, Ødegaard, Xhose, Woodruff, and Coleman for rest, while for the Reds there was no Ashbrown, Peikola, Wojewodka, or Knanirck. The crowd on hand can be forgiven for being less than thrilled with the ensuing display, but honestly, it's only the Supercup. No one wants to get hurt in the league's annual publicity stunt just as the season is starting. At the end of the day, Verhulst's goal, toe-poked past Drenel on a scramble following a corner kick, was the only difference between the teams.

Now, with the marathon of the season fast approaching, you may be asking yourself, "Self, I'm really not sure which SCFA team I ought to support." The easy answer is to just pick a team someone from your country plays for. There's no shame in that, everyone does it. "But self," you say, "what if I don't want to just do that, or if no one from my country plays in the SRS?" Well the latter is a problem that needs to be addressed at the earliest opportunity, but in the meantime we've prepared this handy questionnaire (laying out a flowchart with 37 boxes is hard, ok?) to help you make up your mind about which Superleague team (or maybe one of a few from League 1) is most deserving of your support.

1. Some teams have a lot of history (and are only too keen to remind everyone) while others aren't really bothered with it. Which sort of club do you prefer? How important is it to you that your club have a storied past that stretches back into the days of black and white photos and a suspicious absence of women and people of color from all the photographs?
  • I'm proud of the fact that my club can trace its lineage back over a century! (go to 2)
  • I don't really care that my club was only just founded last week! (go to 3)

2. Ok, so everyone knows you've been around forever and you're just better because of that, but what have you done lately? Do you need a shiny league trophy that you actually saw your team winning, or are you content to polish the ones your grandfather watched them hoist?
  • What good is our history if we haven't won in decades? I need a team that can remember it's last title (go to 4)
  • As long as we have our history, it doesn't matter what the Johnny-come-latelies are doing up at the top of the table (go to 5)

3. Who needs history anyway, what matters is the present. But what kind of present form does your club have? How important is it that they are contenders to win the league? Do you need the promise of silverware, or are you happy with your club just being itself.
  • If you're not first, you're last. Bring me a trophy! (Go to 6)
  • We can't all be winners, but that doesn't make me love my club any less. (go to 7)

4. You were winners in yesteryear, and you are again now, but where does your club play? Which would you rather be called: city slicker or country bumpkin? Do you yearn for the cosmopolitan heart of the nation, or would you rather be somewhere more out of the way?
  • I need to be in the center of culture, it's the big city for me! (Go to 8}
  • It might be the ass-end of nowhere, but I like it here! (Go to 9)

5. Your team is rich in tradition, but haven't won the league since your parents were in diapers. To each their own I guess. What about making sure they stay in the top tier? Are you ok with a few extra-lean years? What if the team actually went so far as to get relegated?
  • Unacceptable, sell everyone, fire the manager out of a cannon, burn your replica jersey. (go to 10)
  • I'm loyal to the end, even if they turn into a yo-yo club (go to 11)

6. You're the new blood of the league, but how did you come by that shiny bit of silverware? Are you ok with a club that goes out and buys itself a championship, or do you insist on building from within, with the slow careful development of a team, even if you might occasionally lose a star to bigger clubs?
  • The best teams are built from within, and supplemented with signings, not just bought at the window. (go to 12)
  • Did you not hear me? I said bring me that trophy by any means necessary! (go to 13)

7. No history, and you're not winning the league now either. Doesn't sound particularly riveting, but there must be something that keeps you watching. I know! It's your hated cross-town rival! Your club might lose every other match on the schedule, but as long as they win that all important derby, it's still a successful season.
  • Derby matches can be fun, sure, but they're not the be-all end-all of football. (go to 14)
  • I have assaulted tourists because they unwittingly wore my rival's colors. (go to 15)

8. This is starting to sound pretty great. A club in the big city with tons of history that still wins these days too? What's not to like? One last question though, what's your favorite color?
  • Red! The color of passion! (go to 16)
  • Blue! The color of inspiration! (go to 17)

9. Who needs to be in the center of everything anyway? You can get all the benefits of following a great club without having to put up with all that hassle. Beautiful countryside is so much nicer than some stupid skyscrapers.
  • The cold never bothered me anyway. (go to 18)
  • I can take the heat. (go to 19)

10. Gotta stay top tier, understood. Let's pivot to matchday culture though. What's your attitude toward drinking at matches?
  • Keep it sensible (go to 20)
  • Become insensate (go to 21)

11. Yeah they might get relegated sometimes, but they'll always come back, right? A team with the history of yours isn't going to be held down for long, and you'll stick with them while they do their time in the second tier. Once they're back in the top tier though, how do the media generally view them.
  • Generally respected team that can knock off a true contender on a good day (go to 22)
  • Full on meme squad (go to 23)

12. We're not going out an just buying a team, we're building one, but what's the most important part of that team to focus on?
  • Gotta score goals to win matches, concentrate on the attack and develop star strikers (go to 24)
  • You can't beat us if you can't score. Defense wins championships (go to 25)

13. Congratulations, you're a Megabrantid supporter! You like winning! They're the most successful club of the SCFA era with three league and two cup titles. They also won the fourth Challengers' Cup, and have a string of top five finishes stretching back seven seasons. They're bankrolled by some of the Confederacy's largest financial conglomerates, so they always have cash to burn in the window, and aren't shy about bringing in whatever players they think will help them win.

14. No history, no recent wins, no local rival. Well I'm not sure what you're watching football for. Maybe it's a political thing? Do you and your football friends also have a bunch of protest dates circled on your calendars?
  • Eh, not really, we're just here for the match. (go to 26)
  • Sieze the means of production, comrades! (go to 27)

15. You're going to beat your rival no matter what, but what's being served up at the prematch party?
  • Fresh seafood, grilled, boiled, fried, however you want. (go to 28)
  • Beef, it's what's for dinner (go to 29)

16. Congratulations, you're a Brantisvogan supporter! Located in the largest city in the Confederacy, Brantisvogan FC is a big well-supported club that has struggled a bit in recent years, but did manage a league title seven seasons back. They have a young squad with a bright future, and the money to keep them together long enough to see that future. You are probably very unhappy about how damn good Megabrantid has been lately, but hey, at least you're doing a bit better than Chalesm.

17. Congratulations, you're a Chalesm supporter! The Blues have had some ups and downs lately, but can look back at their league title four seasons ago and smile. Lately they've been a talented squad with a penchant for underachieving. You are cautiously excited about the arrival of Sigurkarl Kristiansson, and are hoping some of your stars can find their old form again this season.

18. Congratulations, you're a Traal Athletics supporter! You live in the far north of the Confederacy in a frozen wasteland, but your club always seems to be a contender, despite not having half the money of those southrons. Your club succeeds because everyone buys into Lopal Daror's defensive, counterattacking system, and because you only sign players willing to work their ass off for the team.

19. Congratulations, you're an Algolia supporter! Ok, the city of Damogran isn't a middle of nowhere, but it is way out west and far away from everything else. Algolia do have a league title, but it's eight seasons old now, and probably wants a little company there on the shelf. Algolia have plenty of money, and are always in the conversation as league contenders. Right now their lineup is getting a bit old, so you're probably hoping they can find some reinforcements soon.

20. A nice glass of wine at the match maybe, but nothing outrageous. Since we're taking care not to get sloppy, I'd guess you want to look good too, so let's talk fashion. Do you prefer stripes or sashes?
  • I actually won a pageant when I was younger, so it's sashes for me (go to 30)
  • Vertical stripes are actually very slimming you know (go to 31)

21. Hell yeah, let's get lit and watch some football! Before you get too drunk to respond though, I've got one more question. Suppose there were a team that it was rumored perhaps had some degree of financial connection with certain elements within society that might sometimes go, well, a bit beyond what is strictly considered to be entirely law-abiding behavior?
  • Any club with mob money should be dissolved (go to 32)
  • They made us an offer we couldn't refuse, and we didn't (go to 33)

22. Congratulations, you're an Athletic supporter! So am I! Your club is the third-largest in its own city of Damogran, but still manages to be a solid competitor, even with occasional relegations. The pinnacle of any Athletic season is being able to successfully play spoiler and contribute to another Damogran FC collapse. (see 31)

23. Congratulations, you're an Olympia Arkintoofle supporter! The club has cleaned up its act a little under Korenak's management, but most people still think of them as the most legendary collection of badly behaved footballers in recent memery . . . ahem, memory. You despise Arkintoofle United and every neutral who supports them as if their players are a collection of saints.

24. Congratulations, you're a Syneca supporter! Syneca crank out brilliant attacking players and not a lot else. Everyone regards your league championship six seasons ago as a fluke, and to be honest, it's hard to argue with them given the way the team has played more recently. There may be light at the end of the tunnel though, so hit a few of those Syneca beach parties people talk so much about and stop worrying so much.

25. Congratulations, you're a Yassaca supporter! Congrats on that long awaited league title last season! Yassaca are a smaller market team that has proven they can hang with the big dogs through a carefully built team that's all on the same page. Yeah, even I can't really find anything bad to say about Yassaca. Good choice.

26. Ok, let's just watch the match then I guess. If we're not talking politics, maybe we can talk, umm, tactics? How do you feel about teams that play a back three?
  • The back 3 is an unholy abomination! (go to 34)
  • It's a legitimate strategy (go to 35)

27. Congratulations, you're a Sporting Jaglan supporter! Football's great and all, but you don't bore people at parties by discussing your Rebels' brilliant attacking tactics in unnecessary detail. Nope, you corner some poor bastard and explain to them the inherently exploitative nature of our entire economic model. Another convert for the revolution, well done you.

28. Congratulations, you're an Arkintoofle United supporter! Located in the Confederacy's busiest port, Arkintoofle's waterfront stadium is equally blessing and curse. The view is beautiful (as long as you don't look in the direction of the industrial port) and the sea breeze on a hot summer day is lovely. Smells a bit fishy sometimes though.

29. Steak, roast, burgers, sounds great, pass the salt, please. Now that dinner's sorted though, we should think about what to do afterward. How do you feel about period dramas romanticizing the Victorian Era?
  • Papa, how shall I live with no summer home and only five servants? We are positively destitute! (go to 36)
  • Les aristocrates à la lanterne! (go to 37)

30. Congratulations, you're a Jaglan Royals supporter! Royals used to be a power back before the war. Since then they're reliably mid-table, but not a lot more. Kind of like like that one uncle who won't shut up every family gathering about his illustrious football career that would've taken off if only he hadn't wrecked his knee in that pick up basketball game.

31. Congratulations, you're a Damogran supporter! Enjoy those classy black and white stripes, because on the inside, there is only pain. "This is our year, it's the New Damogran," you've told yourself time and again. It's not, this team finds a way to just barely miss. Always good, but no one wants the distinction of being the best team without a single trophy to their name.

32. Congratulations, you're a Lublova Reds supporter! Szlengro na Molvania! It's an exciting time to be in Lublova, furthest flung of Molvania's major cities. Seneca Matthews has brought a dynamic, modern attack to the steppes. What's more, she's done it the right way, careful acquisitions and homegrown talent, not by throwing around ill gotten gains like those soulless profiteers in Lutenblag.

33. Congratulations, you're an Interblag supporter! So yeah, no one can really prove it, but pretty much everyone knows that your club doubles as a money laundering operation for Molvanian organized crime. At least they're good at it I guess? Otherwise someone probably would have put a stop to all this by now. Too bad all that dirty money hasn't bought you any trophies though.

34. Congratulations, you're an Emerald Coast supporter! You know, you could do a lot worse. Vassilian is a charming little city on the coast, without the hustle and bustle of Damogran or Jaglan. Sure, the Emeralds make the occasional trip down to the second tier, but they usually pop right back up. Your stars get poached a fair amount, but it can be fun watching them play at a high level, as long as it's not for Royals.

35. Congratulations, you're a Brasta supporter! Jigar Cisneros and his back 3 brought this club back to relevance damnit and you won't hear anyone criticize him. Of course, "relevance" in this case mostly means "yo-yo club" but hey, at least you get to go out and enjoy a subtropical paradise after the match.

36. Congratulations, you're a Viltvodle City supporter! City was founded by a bunch of bored aristos with ceremonial military titles the very finest of the upper crust of Viltvodle high society. You don't have to show genealogy papers to sit in a luxury box at a Borderers match, but it certainly helps if you do. Not like that rabble across town at United.

37. Congratulations, you're a Viltvodle United supporter! Now, you're not as far out there as those wackjobs at Sporting, but god does it get old listening to City supporters put on airs when their club is no better than yours, hasn't won anything more than yours, and isn't even much older (what's a couple years at this point).

A beautiful day for football in Syneca, unless you happened to number among the visitors. With League 1 champion player-manager Ucyxi-Slokt Eva and new Syneca bench boss Daniel Lucas set to face off in their Superleague debuts, there was also a fair amount of nationwide attention on the match. Most commentators favored the Sea Lions, but there were a decent number predicting the upset. Syneca must've taken that personally. "The way things ended for this team last season, I know a lot of us wanted to make a big statement early on," explained new Sea Lions midfielder Myrone Bradshaw afterward. The Xannerian certainly did his part, scoring a brace and generally bullying the Furies down the flank, to the point that a visibly frustrated Ucyxi-Slokt eventually took themself out of the match.
While Athletic were getting slaughtered, a big double header was on the schedule back home in Damogran. The afternoon match was yet another meeting of the Royal Derby. The Suntigers and Royals had to contend with intermittent rain, and neither side looked their best, each taking home a point. In the evening, defending champions Yassaca visited Damogran in an early-season clash of league contenders. Yassaca's defense and midfield had control of the tempo for most of the match, but were unable to make the most of their chances. In th end it was Zgela who broke through between harkhan and Woodruff to score the match's only goal in his Eagles debut.

Controversy marred the defending champions' home debut, as a penalty shout went unanswered, and, in fact, nearly cost the Tigers a point. Shortly before the half, Ødegaard went tumbling to the ground just inside the Chalesm box. The referee did not make any immediate call, but stopped play and went to video review. In the replay, it was clear that while Ødegaard went to ground readily, Embert did appear to have impeded his progress toward the ball, making contact with his hip and knee. The referee evidently saw differently, and did not give a penalty. Of the many Yassaca players attempt to express their disagreement with his decision, Jeska Verhulst apparently went just a bit too far, and was shown a yellow card for her trouble. Trouble was, she was already in the official's book for an early tackle that was more of a body check. The Tigers were on the back foot nearly all of the second half, and used all three of their substitutions to replace their exhausted midfield, but just managed to hold Lafayette, Hocij and Marko at bay.

Devane Miller's first full season on the touchline for Sporting has begun, and it's already a mixed bag. Traal are a team at a bit of an ebb, class-wise, and a ripe target for an upset minded team trying to ensure they muster enough points to stay up. The opportunity went wanting though, as Traal's counters slashed through the Sporting defense for three goals. Now, Traal were favored in this match, so the result is not really a surprise to anyone. Few picked Sorting to be competitive this season, and more than a few see them in danger of relegation. All the same, a high-profile manager like Miller taking the helm of a club flirting with the drop zone was a bit out of the ordinary last season, and people who should really knwo better have been talking up how much better the Rebels should be this season. Hopefully the Sporting board have more patience than the amateur online prognosticators who are ready to bury them for not taking a point off the Oilers.

This season marks a significant change in the format for the Confederacy Cup. Going forward, we'll see much shorter schedule lists, and fewer matches for the top tier teams, who have suffered significantly from fixture congestion. The new first round format sees League 3 drawn against League 2, with the winners to be drawn against League 1 in the second round, and those winners to face the Superleague in the third round. Which pot a team falls into is now based on their position in the SCFA pyramid in the current season, rather than their previous year's finish. It is hoped this will somewhat alleviate the problem, and make it possible for teams in IFCF and FFI contention to be at their best in the Cup and League as well. The elimination of the qualifying round, pitting only the worst eight teams in the SCFA against each other is another bonus to this new arrangement.

Algolia have been off to a good start so far this season, winning two after drawing their opener. In Lublova, the Reds have struck a more sour note to begin their attempt to repeat as a top-five club. They managed to beat Royals, but that win was bookended by ugly home losses to Megabrantid and Syneca. Matthews and company are definitely feeling the pressure to turn things around quickly. Looking at the other contenders around the league, there might very well be only one of these clubs in an IFCF berth in a few months' time. Today though, it was the Reds who got the job done. Peikola and Knanirck were brilliant in central midfield, despite being occasionally outnumbered by Algolia's central 3. The Reds got goals from Nedeljkovic and Siegel, and Drenel tallied a clean sheet, thanks in part to Rebljeten sending a screamer just over the bar.

It was Derby Day in Brantisvogan, and the sun shone down brilliantly on Radlov Arena as the teams filed onto the pitch to a roaring ovation. Takala and Intov-Helek shook hands and exchanged tchotchkes. The Brantisvogan faithful had some creative suggestions for what Iuri could do with his. The crowd got even louder when Vancy Akkaynak opened the scoring about halfway through the first half, taking a nice feed from McConnaugh between the center backs. Takala and his teammates weren't overly distressed though. Their team is one forged in league title chases and IFCF tournaments. A team lke that isn't panicked by going down a goal because they know they can get it back. So when Takala equalizes early in the second, it's not a shock to anyone really. Brantisvogan are the ones looking sightly shaken though. They also know what Megabrantid are capable of, and try as they might, can't quite seem to find the plays they were making in the first half. The space that was there before has vanished, leaving only white shirts. The buildup is slow, methodical, but again, by the time Cant has actually scored the winner, it's really not a surprise to anyone. It's just a difference in class.

This week, the intra-city showdown is way out west in Damogran, where the Suntigers and Eagles renew their acquaintance. These two teams are neck and neck near the top of the table, and both have serious league ambitions. Both teams have high-powered attacks, though today neither one seems to know how to defend. The result is a thriller for the fans, who are treated to no fewer than six goals. Despite their advancing age, Algolia's attackers keep pace with the more youthful energy of the Eagles, with Eisenhauer notching a brace, and Presic adding the third. Each of Eisenhauer's goals is quickly answered though, first by D'Amico, then by Starosta. It is an unexpected source for the final equalizer though, as Walker sends the away supporters into a frenzy with just five minutes left before stoppage.

Today was a day for the upset-minded, as the two odds-on favorites for the league both suffered defeat to teams projected to finish in the bottom half. First it was Sporting, whose new additions have clearly not quite fit themselves into the side yet. The Rebels played host to mighty Megabrantid, who were fresh off an easy victory over Brasta, and anticipating the same in Jaglan. Instead, they were reminded that Lyyti Vang is a world-class striker, who happens to play for a smaller club because she "just feels at home there." Her words. After the Vang show had concluded, with alone answering goal from Gelan-Yivix to preserve the Firm's pride, it was Yassaca who were ambushed in Viltvodle. United's midfield is probably one of the most overlooked in the league, as no one player jumps out as a star, but therein lies the danger. They execute Lynul-Zorno's tactics so well as a unit, led by Luk, who has a longer tenure than most Superleauge managers. They might not play this well again in their lives, but today the Hornets outplayed the Yassaca midfield, among the best in the league on paper. Luk fed Prantist for one goal and Nedzukova for another, and it was only a ball spilled by Widberg to the feet of Verhulst that spoiled the clean sheet.

Not too many surprises, thought last placed Independent knocking of UFC will raise an eyebrow or two. The Lions spent a season in the Superleague not so long ago, and should be thoroughly embarrassed by their performance. There's a bit less shame for Flania Traal, who have struggled to find their form early on, and had the misfortune of being draw against red-hot Szlachta.

It's been a rough start to the season for Brasta: six clean sheet losses, one narrow victory over Interblag. That's right, coming into matchday eight, Brasta have one, single, solitary goal to their name. It was a pretty decent goal, a neat bit of dribbling by Tambura before crossing to Vavra for a strong shot. Today, they paid a visit just a short stretch north up the coast to Syneca. The Sea Lions are fighting for position in the top half, with the eventual goal of equalling Yassaca, the current royalty of Sivolvia. Neither really has much regard for the little sibling, Brasta, way down south. The Buccaneers came out a bit flat, to be honest. Malicki and the Syneca midfield had the majority of first half possession, but were wasteful in the final third, and the visitors escaped to the dressing room with the match still scoreless. Starting the second, they began to show a little more promise. Velen worked tirelessly to win the ball back and spray it out to the wings, where Foray or Tambura would start things moving forward again, taking advantage of some intermittent wide space between the midfield and defensive lines. Finally, Foray was able to locate a path through to Krond in the middle, who fired from distance, but straight at Mortenson, who parried it away. Straight to the feet of Musieri, who tapped it in. You take what you can get when goals are this few and far between.

Emerald Coast are an interesting case this season. They've done some shuffling of the roster, and are generally looked at as a weaker team than last season, with veterans like Hilargi, Khan, and Ghadavi replaced by new, younger players. Montez and Sultana do have some experience of their own, but are untested in starting roles, and the team has had it's share of struggles. From time to time though, they've shown flashes of potential, with a particularly impressive win over Lublova a few weeks back. They faced a stiff challenge this week, coming into Chalesm against Kristiansson's rejuvenated team. The Blue have had their own struggles though, and this week was no different. Rinko Nazahn, who has had trouble finding her form again after a wasted season sidelined in a men's league in Tequilo, had one of her better days, presenting a lot of problems for Picard and Embert. She broke through their barricade twice before halftime. Mustahil was able to hold one of her efforts, but the second evaded him to open the scoring. With Chalesm forced to chase the game in the second half, Yoltz-Jonto broke through down the other side, scoring one goal of their own, and feeding a cross to Alexandre for a 3-0 lead. Marko clawed one back for the Blues, but time ran out on their comeback efforts before they got particularly close.

One third into the season. Some teams have started to sort themselves out to one end of the table or another. Quite a few, though, are stuck in the mid-table logjam where eight teams from sixth to thirteenth are now separated by just three points. There are quite a few that are surprising to find there, Yassaca and Lublova most particularly. Emerald Coast up in seventh is a bit out of the ordinary. Interblag are one of those exactly where you'd expect them to be. The team dropped perilously close to the drop zone last season, and it's difficult to say that they've improved much, if at all, since that time. This week, they were guests of Athletic in Damogran, a team that they're all but certain to be in competition with late in the season as the relegation picture sorts itself out. Ônzántolöìra, one of two new faces together with youth graduate Parthalewski, has provided some fresh energy to the attack, but much of the returning cast seems stagnant at best, particularly the remainder of the midfield. Against the Furies, it was the young Farf together with Wronzki who created most of the scoring chances, with the Blues former SRS internationals Autenrieth and Drunau accomplishing little of substance. Across the field, Ucyxi-Slokt's side seems to be finding its stride in the Superleague and starting to pull together, which only spells trouble for the other teams on the relegation bubble. The Player-Manager themself has been important on the field, but has also found ways to bring out better and better from the rest of the team as the season has gone on. Saotisohi in particular looks much improved from the early weeks. She had an assist on Birdanan's match winner today before leaving late on after picking up an injury and leaving the match. Fortunately, the club has assured the press the issue is minor, and shouldn't keep her sidelined for long.

For the second straight season, Viltvodle United is putting on a performance that puts the doubters to shame. At the end of the day this week, they sit fifth, on pace for a return to the Challengers' Cup, and ahead of both Yassaca and Lublova. Their victory over Syneca, who are also fighting for position in the top half, was a vitally important six-pointer. One really has to admire what Lynul-Zorno has accomplished with the Hornets in a very short span of time. The extent to which their performances repeatedly baffle analysts who can't look past their lack of star power shows the extent to which their success is the product of their manager's vision and leadership. Taking nothing away from the players. The entire enterprise hinges on their execution of that vision, which has been consistently strong. Against Syneca, the back line was near perfect in shutting down the Sea Lions' attack, and Mishima was particularly strong in the transitional phase, leading to a number of counterattacks and both of the Hornets' goals: one for Prantist and one for Pinder. There remains a lot of football to be played, and some very good teams chasing them, but the Hornets can certainly be proud of their body of work so far.

Ok Canyons. Calm it down here. Save some of those goals for the league. You're gonna need em. Everything else was pretty much a normal match. Ark U over Scovelan. Yawn. Rangers over Dynamo Lublova. Sure, why not. Railways over Wavel AC. Wait what? 2 away goals heading back to Brantisvogan? The Evergreens have their work cut out for them I guess.

The Danu River Derby features two sides whose fortunes have been headed in opposite directions so far this season. Emerald Coast have been solidly mid-table, making occasional pushes toward the top of that footballing peloton. Sporting, on the other hand, have slipped to last, as Miller works with limited success to change the culture of the team from freewheeling attack to a more responsible but still creative style. "No matter what, if you focus on scoring only, you're going to lose a lot," he explained pre-match. His Rebels weren't able to quite put everything together today, but they did manage a balanced enough match to earn an important point away from home. Tyra Volam showed some of the creative flair that was showcased in her brief time with the Squornshelan national team, combining well with Brighton against the Emeralds' midfield, though Orgatz's play was lackluster. As usual, Vang pulled the trigger for the Rebels, but also played in Poulain for one of their goals. Closing out the match proved difficult, however, as the Emeralds pressed forward, and Alexandre equalized after Vang's goal. Late on, Geladi crossed into the area after an overlapping exchange with Montez and found the head of Nazahn to secure one point for the home side.

Are . . . are there too many tournaments? While many league contenders spend the international domestic break resting and training, Yassaca and Lublova each have not one but two matches to play. Is it any wonder last season’s first and third place finishers are languishing mid-table at the moment? At least their runs are going well, as each side advances in the FFI and is in excellent position after the first legs in the IFCF. Megabrantid and Bikarish could have been a final matchup, but it occurs in the Round of 32 instead. The Firm just edge out the opposition. Also what is a motherfrakker?

Meetings between Megabrantid and Royals are frequently cerebral tactical battles, marked by closely contended play in midfield and tight defense. Today’s match was no different. Both Masalkar’s and Bryson’s sides played very centrally focused formations, with the result that the ball spent a lot of time in the middle of the park. That’s not to say the action was uninteresting. Far from it, as the midfield battles featured a number of intriguing skirmishes. Newer starters Dast and Kadec vied for superiority on one wing, while the veterans Tatham and Teklu faced off on the other. In the center, of course, Ridenton versus Takala is always a thrill to watch, even when those two of the best center mids in the league happen to largely cancel each other out, as was the case today. Service through to the strikers was a difficult proposition at either end of the field, and all four went long stretches without a touch. Not much of a match for many neutrals, it has to be said, but an indication of the depth of quality in the league, where so many teams are realistic contenders for IFCF position.

It’s time to talk about the job that Elrik Raskine has done at Damogran over the past few seasons. Early on in his tenure, it was very easy to make jokes. New face, same Damogran, right? They’ll always find a way to finish just short of IFCF position, right? Well with the halfway point of the season just around the corner, the Eagles have an undefeated 9-5-0 record, and lead the league by seven points over Megabrantid and Algolia. The midfield has been excellent in possession, the attack has been incisive, and the defense, so often the achilles heel of past Damogran teams, has held up its end as well. Zgela, the lone newcomer has been an instant hit, fitting in very well, and is putting together a pretty convincing resume for striker of the season. Case in point: today’s match against Traal. The Oilers haven’t been the most consistent side so far this season, but are still a solid defensive team with three excellent center halves. Damogran came out a bit careless and got burned on an early counter capped off by Maktar, but then quickly settled into possession. The Damogran midfield tends to collapse inward, allowing the fullbacks and wingers to occupy wide spaces, and the result was that O Connaíl and Arnold had to pick their poison, needing support from the center backs if they were to cover all three options. That level of coordination is extremely difficult to maintain for 90 minutes, and there were inevitable breakthroughs. One of these led to the equalizer not long after the half, with D’Amico charging forward before cutting the ball across to Starosta, who was lurking between the lines. The winner came from Zgela, combining with Starosta and Halfariani in a wide area before cutting inside on Atarka and firing before Kim could close him down. Now, some very, very good teams are still close behind Damogran, but they’ve put together about as good a first half as you could ask for.

The Molvanian Derby was not expected to be competitive exactly, but it’s always a shock when a team gets absolutely blown out on their home ground to a hated rival. That’s exactly what happened to Interblag this evening though, and the Blues are absolutely reeling. As has happened all too often for Interblag this season, the midfield was completely outplayed in wide areas, leading the fullbacks more or less on their own to handle wingers and fullbacks both, with predictable results. Ashbrown and Siegel feasted on the available space, each finishing with a goal and an assist. For Interblag, injury was added to insult late one when Kroetzl landed awkwardly after colliding midair with Peikola. The holding midfielder had to be carried off, covering his face with one hand while bravely giving a thumbs up t the crowd with the other.

Lublova, Yassaca, and Megabrantid all fielded B teams, and paid for it, none more than the reds, who will be unhappy with losing to third tier opposition no matter who was on the field. Not sure what Royals' excuse was though. Wavel AC are a good League 1 team, but Royals are looking like IFCF contenders, and should not be losing to anyone from the second tier. Same goes for the Emeralds, who rested a few players, but should really not be losing to a League 2 side.

A second straight five nil loss for Interblag, this time at the hands of surprisingly lethal Emerald Coast attack. Everyone knew that Yoltz-Jonto Cel was going to be a creative force out right once again, but few could have predicted that Gualter Montez would be as effective on the left in his first season with the club. Or that Rinko Nazahn could rediscover the form she enjoyed at Syneca years ago. Those three are hardly the only players driving the Emeralds forward, to say nothing of Manager Kalyana Sherzi’s influence. They are the most visible in the attack though, and have combined for some spectacular goals. What’s more, this team is very clearly having fun, and has an easy chemistry many clubs would be jealous of. Nazahn, who last season was all frowns and monosyllabic answers post-match, actually speaks in complete sentences. To be fair, she was asked a of stupid questions about the gender mixup situation a lot of times, so it’s hard to blame her. Still, it’s easy to tell by the team’s demeanor that they have found that magical rhythm when a team can seemingly match up against anyone, no matter how outclassed they might seem on paper.

The afternoon draw between Sporting and Athletic doesn’t really help either team very much. Sporting are still stuck down in the drop zone, while Athletic are not very far above automatic relegation, and need wins, no draws, if they’re going to climb up to a safer position. The other bottom-half teams like Brantisvogan, Traal, and Interblag still pick up points too frequently for any streak of draws to be useful in catching them. For Sporting, Vang keeps scoring, but the team’s overall possession play is once again letting them down, and gifting the opposition with so much of the ball is having predictable results in their goals against column. For the Furies, the problem is harder to pin down. They’ve also been able to score decently well, averaging the same 1.0 goals per game as the Rebels, and while their defense hasn’t been fantastic, it’s been better than Sporting’s. What they’ve struggled with, when it comes down to it, is that clutch performance. The late goal, or desperate defence in stoppage time that separates wins from draws, draws from losses. It hasn’t been there for the Furies after they had it in spades last season, when they won League 1 with just the 4th-best goal differential.. Whether they’re simply outclassed is up for debate, but this team needs to rediscover how to win the close ones if they want to accomplish their goal of staying up.

Royals nearly came back against Wavel, but fell just short, as did Emeralds, with Jundar Eklund scoring late to secure advancement for Bayfront.

Viltvodle United missed a golden opportunity today, with floundering Brasta coming to town. The Hornets predictably shut down Brasta’s meager attack, but were unable to find the winning goal. For Brasta, it’s a solid result, as they need all the points they can get, especially from matches away to teams fighting for position in the top half. It helped them keep pace with Sporting, and close one point on Athletic. At a glance, many casual fans would wonder how Brasta can be such a defensive team playing with only three at the back. Taking a look at Brasta’s roster though, it’s easy to see how everything starts from the defense. Tawfiq and Ralox-Relaf are both fit enough to closely mark opposing strikers and cover the wide spaces the formation can leave open. In the center, Helder has the experience and awareness to make decisions on the fly and position himself according to where he is most needed. In Foray and Tambura, the team also has its two best midfield players wide, where they can easily fall back, transforming the formation into a 5-3-2 when maximum defense is needed. Finally, the central midfield trio is oriented toward the defense, with Velen patrolling between the defensive and midfield lines, and assisting with breakout through the middle. While it’s true they’ve struggled at times this season, their defensive performance has been consistently better than Athletic and Sporting, the teams nearest them on points. This is certainly thanks to Jigar Cisneros tactics and personnel selection, and it earned them a surprise point today.

It's starting to get pretty real here in terms of quality of opponents for the Tigers and Reds. Yassaca were just plain impressive, controlling play in midfield and shutting down the Vanorians attack for long stretches en route to their victory. Lublova's match in Sabrefell was much more closely fought, but the Reds escaped with the scoreline even, and a vitally important away goal to break the aggregate deadlock.

Brantisvogan and Interblag put on quite a show for the neutrals, but the end result can’t have been very satisfying for either side’s supporters, who are each hoping to see their club climb out of the bottom-half hole it’s in. Neither manager was very happy with their team either. Who would be after allowing five goals? Bess Gannon, whose time with the Red Flash has been frequently underwhelming so far, was visibly frustrated. In fact, the Nepharim was cautioned for stepping over the touchline in her efforts to make herself heard. Her assistant, Kurtis Rough, was subsequently booked for dissent.

As we draw the curtain on the second third of the season, there are more than a few interesting storylines to explore and look forward to. First and foremost, look at that Brantid Derby scoreline. The Firm beaten by three goals at MFF? Brantisvogan have struggled mightily thus far, but that could be the kind of win that propels them to something special over the final ten matches. At the same time, the loss drops Megabrantid four points behind the league leaders. Certainly within striking distance, but they have some ground to make up. As for those leaders, Yassaca missed a huge opportunity with a scoreless home draw to Sporting, of all teams. Is Miller’s message finally starting to sink in with the Rebels, or is this a one off? Only time can tell. Damogran have looked much more human since their red-hot first half, allowing Royals to catch up to them, though like Yassaca, both sides had to settle for draws today, as Chalesm blanked Royals, and Syneca matched Damogran’s scoring goal for goal. And speaking of missed opportunities, how about Algolia? A poll of Confederate fans would have found a large majority expecting them to handle business against the Emeralds and pass Megabrantid for fourth place. Instead, their attack was shut down completely as the visitors eked out a narrow victory that sees them move ahead of the Suntigers on goal differential. Finally, the reckoning has finally come for Traal, and Lopal Daror should probably be encouraged to resign at season’s end. It’s not what he deserves, not at all, but it’s what’s best for the club going forward. They can’t move on while he’s still there.

Lublova may finally be in trouble, giving up two away goals to Arlington. They'll need to score at least two in Zwangzug to advance, which could be a tall order. Nedeljkovic's goal could prove important though, as the Reds will only have to overcome a one-goal deficit. Yassaca are in a better position coming home from Farfadillis with an even score and a pair of away goals. Megabrantid, meanwhile, fell flat, ending Confederate participation in this cycles FFI tournaments.

As tough a season as Sporting are having, and as much as they’re having to come to grips with the fact that their wide-open attacking tactics of seasons past have simply got to change if they’re going to stop being a yo-yo team, sometimes it just goes right. Today’s match against Interblag was a glimpse of prototypical Sporting Football[sup]TM[sup]. Min, who has been quiet most of the season, got loose down the left side against Shervatski, and was a problem for Interblag all afternoon. His dribbling was incisive, his crosses well-placed, and his shooting accurate. Furnadjev was equal to most of his efforts in the first half, as the Blue took a 2-0 lead on a brace from Autenrieth, but anyone could see that it was only a matter of time before the Rebels broke through. The first came right off the second half kickoff, with Min once again charging forward before a quick switch of play gave Poulain a path to the net. Closed down by both Furnadjev and Vrboska, she chopped the ball back across the goalmouth to Vang, who finished easily. Just like that, the floodgates were open, and Sporting piled up 4 more before the 60 minute mark. Ônzántolöìra’s tally in garbage time did little to make the match any more respectable for the Blues, but it was a beauty of a shot, arcing from 30 yards out to beat Jang by a whisker. Post-match, Miller’s response to his team’s outburst was measured. He expressed admiration for the teams resilience in mounting the comeback, but also disappointment in the first half lapses that made the comeback necessary in the first place.

Chalesm, Athletic, and Syneca are ousted by lower-league opponents. Chalesm losing to Flam City at home is particularly egregious, since the Violets aren’t even in promotion position in League 2 right now, and by all accounts, simply not a very good team. Although, with Sporting and Rangers also still alive, there’s plenty of evidence that you don’t need a good team to go deep in the cup, just a hot one, and a little luck in the draw. Brantisvogan provided more evidence for that proposition by doubling down on their first leg win over Damogran for a commanderin 4-0 aggregate win. Maja Topić was excellent in goal for the Red Flash in both matches. In fact, Damogran’s ouster means that of the entire Superleague top half, only Yassaca remain in contention in the cup. The Tigers, then, are the only team with any chance to win the double this season.

Today’s one-all draw was emblematic of a frustrating season full of missed opportunities for both Brantisvogan and Syneca. Both Red Flash and Sea Lions were hoping to start seeing the results of changes they’ve made, and had aimed for top-half finishes this season. Alas, when ten or twelve teams in a sixteen team league hope to finish in the top half, someone is bound to be disappointed. For Syneca, it’s becoming clear that something more fundamental than a management change and tactical overhaul is going to be necessary. Somehow, despite looking excellent on paper with a potent attacking lineup, this team finds a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory time and time again. They axed a manager who’s on his way to a fantastic showing in Chromatika and haven’t really improved. Something else has to give, and I don’t envy Daniel Lucas for being the one tasked with making the hard decisions. In Brantisvogan, the situation is a little different. The team is at least still alive in the Cup, and has more hope for the immediate future with prospects coming along well. The defense, however, has been hair-tearingly inconsistent. Today, for example, they played fairly well for a majority of the match, until the point that Finnan went straight between the center backs and lobbed Magnussen. The attack has also fluctuated between excellent and nonexistent. Some of that can be written off to the inconsistency of such a young attacking midfield, but part of it is squarely on Koppuri’s shoulders. It’s clear he is simply not a dynamic enough player to be the sole striker in a lineup, and Gannon needs to find an upgrade if she’s going to meet the board’s expectations any time soon.

Challengers' Cup
Arlington City 0-0 Lublova Reds
Yassaca 1-0 René Skaé
Arlington park the bus at home, and Lublova are out, but what a run for the Reds. From mid table purgatory to a Challengers’ Cup quarter in just a few short years. Seneca Matthews is to be commended for her work, even though the team’s league position has slipped a bit this season. Yassaca, meanwhile, do some bus parking of their own after an early goal by Rallyton gives them the aggregate lead. Combined with Yassaca’s away goals from the first leg, that one tally put René Skaé in a two-goal hole, which they were ultimately unable to climb out of.

Damogran 0–1 Emerald Coast
Upsets nearly across the board this week, with nearly the entire top half losing. Emerald Coast were the big winners, picking up points on everyon near them in the standings with their narrow victory in Damogran. The Emeralds, generally a decent bottom half team, have surprised a lot of teams this season, though by this point they should really know better. The Eagles earned a 1-0 victory of their own in Vassilian earlier this season, so they ought to have been prepared for the wide attack that the Emeralds like to employ and focused on dominating possession and keeping the ball in the center of the field. Instead, they spent large portions of the match chasing the rapid vertical movement and quick switches of play that Sherazi’s side has employed so well to put their opponents off-guard. It took time to break down the Eagles’ defense, but they surrendered the initiative so much that by the time Montez slipped inside to score the winner, it felt inevitable.

A Han Wavel showdown always makes for interesting viewing, unless it’s a mistake-filled bore of a draw like today’s edition. Hopefully the Rangers and Evergreens can muster up a proper showing for the second leg. Brantisvogan and Yassaca do the bare minimum, leaving themselves very much within reach of their opponents, while Sporting got a late goal from Volam to equalize and give themselves a chance, however slim, to knock off Traal.

Chalesm have had am up and down season. At the moment they are very much on the up, climbing into fifth place with a solid away win over Emeralds combined with some favorable results elsewhere. Wherever the Blues end up finishing, this season has to be considered at least a measured success for Sigurkarl Kristiansson. Taking over a floundering club without much in the way of tactical identity, he has molded them into something much more distinct. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but Chalesm have become a hard-nosed possession based team that falls back into solid defensive lines with Robin patrolling the space in between. In the attack, they are considerably more fluid, with Robin hanging back to protect the middle just head of the center backs, the fullbacks free to move forward to join the midfield line as Hocij and Marko look to cut inside and connect with Lafayette. When it works well, and it certainly did on Marko’s goal today, it’s impressive. Now that I’ve said all these nice things watch the Blues lose out just to spite me.

Challengers' Cup
Yassaca 1-0 Arlington City
In all the fervor over their excellent midfield and the dynamic play of Ødegaard since he arrived, Yassaca’s fantastic back line sometimes feels a bit overlooked. Every time Arlington’s strikers turned around, there they were, closing down, winning the ball back, forcing everything to the outside and shutting off passing routes to high danger areas. Yassaca are now just 90 minutes away from making the final, where anything can happen.

Royals have been a fairly quiet team so far this season. They haven’t had flashy wins or gaudy scorelines. Haven’t made too many highlight reels for their goals either, but here they sit nonetheless, on top of the league. Their clinical victory in Viltvodle combined with the Firm beating the Tigers in a heavyweight showdown in Yassaca was enough to let Royals slip just ahead of the Tigers in the standings. How have they done it? Royals have allowed just 15 goals, second only to Yassaca in that statistic, and have the best goal differential in the league. They keep every match close, and outwork their opponents more often than not. Ridenton, Rai, and Nagant have been a potent force in possession, and Kaidanov’s emergence as a consistent goalscorer has given them a weapon in attack that they previously lacked. There’s still too much football to be played, but this is a team who’s had the form to make a run for the league title, and they’ve just been handed pole position in the race to the finish over the last five matchdays. They can make a great start immediately, as their next opponent is none other than Yassaca.

The Evergreens attack shows up again at home, and Rangers fairytale run comes to an end. Brantisvogan very nearly stumbled, allowed an early goal in Flamarion, but recovered with a goal from Syomin in the second to save us the ignominy of a third-tier team making the semifinal, entertaining as it might have been. The match in Traal was all too predictable, with the Oilers clamping down, slowing the match to a crawl, and snagging a goal on the counter, with Mlynarek getting behind Romano and finding Vilhajalmsson with a cross. Yassaca, like Brantisvogan, very nearly stumbled against inferior opposition. In the Tigers case it was more the result of playing a B team as they chase both the league and Challengers’ Cup titles. In the end, Vatanian saved the home side by equaling Korrpati’s goal just before stoppage time.

Syneca 0–1 Viltvodle United

Curse of the commentator strikes immediately, as Yassaca look polished and dominant, taking down Royals by two goals to nil in Jaglan. Megabrantid are similarly competent in handling Interblag to keep pace, while Damogran hammer Brantisvogan to close in on Royals from behind. The real eye-popper this week, though, is what happened in Lublova, where Seneca Matthews minced no words after her side allowed six goals in an ugly loss to Sporting. “We can’t let this happen. Doesn’t even matter that it’s the worst team in the league, I wouldn’t accept six goals conceded at home if we were hosting goddamn Raynor City.” The loss leaves Lublova with their work cut out for them if they still hold out any hope of making the IFCF.

Challengers' Cup
Arlington City 2-2 Yassaca
It was a bit of a wilder night than Irfun Melkum probably drew up for his team, but as the goals started to tally, Arlington’s task got more and more difficult, being without an away goal themselves.

Megabrantid 5–5 Athletic

Brantisvogan 0–0 Chalesm
Yassaca’s resounding victory over Syneca reinforces that the Tigers are the preeminent force in Sivolvian football at present. They have opened up a four point lead on the chasing pack since regaining the top spot a few weeks ago, and with just three matches remaining to be played, are very much favored to repeat as champions. Behind them is chaos. Megabrantid, Damogran, and Royals separated only by goal differential. Emerald Coast and Algolia just three and four points behind them respectively. The coming weeks bring numerous meetings between the top six, and should provide some very entertaining football (and nerve-wracking if you support one of the teams involved). Down at the bottom, Traal and Athletic have built a little separation between themselves and the automatic drop, but not enough to feel comfortable just yet. Besides, both of them would like to avoid having to head to the playoff. One match to decide your team’s fate in the coming year is too much of a dice roll ever since the SCFA switched away from two-legged relegation playoffs. In the effort to avoid that risk, Athletic were particularly impressive. They didn’t get the win, but hanging with Megabrantid goal for goal as they put up five is something the attack can be proud of, even if the defense will probably want to forget the match as soon as they can.

Brantisvogan 3–0 Wavel AC
Yassaca 0–1 Traal Athletics
Brantisvogan's system of using alternate goalkeepers in league and cup matches isn't doing them much good in the standings, but Topić's performances in the cup have been excellent, and today's home clean sheet against Wavel's potent attack is more of that trend. Magnussen had better shape up over the last three league matches or risk losing her job sooner than expected.

Yassaca’s loss to the Suntigers really makes things interesting at the top. The Tigers still hold onto first, and are in a good position to successfully defend their league title. Damogran and Megabrantid sit just behind them though. What’s more, the Eagles have a lead in goal differential on both the Tigers and the Firm. Behind them, it’s Algolia, Royals, and the Cinderella story, Emerald Coast fighting for the two remaining Challengers’ Cup spots. Lublova’s big win over the Hornets was impressive, but too little too late, as there isn’t enough time left to make up the deficit between them and fifth place. The bottom of the table is a little more interesting. Sporting are almost certainly doomed, as they can only catch Traal with perfect results, including overcoming a GD deficit of ten. Brasta have a bit better chance, but also need a lot of results to go their way. They’ll get a chance to do the job themselves though, as they play Athletic on the final matchday.

Brantisvogan don't go all out, sitting on a three goal lead, but do enough to make the final, getting goals from Ditou and Balan to maintain a two-goal cushion. In the other semifinal, Yassaca are very much focused on the league race, and rest several starters. As a result, they were unable to penetrate Traal's defense, and the Oilers repeat their result from the first leg with a goal from Maktar.

As many exciting matchups and developments in both the championship and relegations races, we're going to have to put that aside for a moment this week for an even bigger story coming out of Lutenblag. Even as Interblag were pulling off an upset of Algolia that left the Suntigers still stalled just outside the IFCF position they want, the Molvanian Department of the Confederate Police Bureau was holding a press conference across town. The announcement was devastating. After a years-long investigation of organized crime in Molvania, they had made a sweeping series of arrests. The vast majority were members of the Lutenblag-based Mutri crime syndicate, the largest such organization in the Confederacy. The CPB's efforts will doubtless be to the great benefit of Lutenblag and Molvania in the long term, but in the short term, they are the subject of fierce contention in the city. Not only are many Lutenblagers sympathetic to the Mutri, particularly in lower-income areas, but the list of arrests released by the CPB included two members of the Interblag board of directors: Perko Midzienz, and Ctibor Rastic. The outcry over a perceived attack on their beloved Interblag was near instantaneous, as was near universal condemnation of the club from everywhere else in the country. It has long been suspected that Interblag has maintained close financial and social ties to the Mutri but the connection could never be proved before now. While the court cases will take months, perhaps even years to play out, the SCFA has leeway to be more decisive in its actions than the government. Just two days after the CPB release, SCFA president Ailen Koirala announced devastating sanctions against Interblag. First, they would be deducted 30 points from the current season, guaranteeing them a last-place finish. Second, the club would be required to grant mutual termination of contract to any player requesting it, effectively making all of their players free agents. Third, the club would be demoted by one leage in addition to their relegation sending them to the third tier for Season 11. Finally, Interblag would receive a 3-season ban from participation in the Confederacy Cup, during which time they would also be ineligible for promotion. Interblag has, of course, immediately appealed all these rulings, and the matter is headed to arbitration. All things considered though, these were quite charitable terms from Koirala, who would have been within her rights to expel Interblag from the SCFA altogether. It seems highly unlikely that they will be able to obtain a much more favorable ruling. A shortening of the cup ban is probably the best they can hope for.
As far as results go, Yassaca, Megabrantid, and Royals kept pace with each other atop the table, while Yassaca's win ended Lublova's IFCF hopes. Damogran are left in third, sputtering to a draw with Traal, while Emerald Coast and Algolia both missed an opportunity to close in on the Eagles, posting losses. The relegation race, meanwhile, has gone from still very much to be decided, to all but settled, assuming Interblag's points penalty stands. The Blues will go down, but the second automatic relegation is still to be decided. Neither Brasta nor Sporting can catch Athletic in thirteenth, and their results against Athletic and Brantisvogan respectively will determine who goes straight down, and who ends up in the playoff, which will most likely be against either Central or Golgafrincham.

The arbitrator's decision is made, and all the SCFA's penalties were upheld, including the cup ban. How they will fill the empty spot in the cup remains to be seen, but Interblag are dealt a crushing blow. Knowing they were going down, that the club had been issued its effective death sentence and that the team would be scattered to the winds, Interblag's players had nothing left to give. Their listless showing in their final top tier match for the foreseeable future, and against a rival to boot, drew jeers and whistles from the crowd. A mocking cheer from the Interblag ultras who had traveled to Lublova greeted Drunau's goal late in the second half. One wishes the supporters would have saved their derision for the criminal executives far more deserving of it, but they did have to watch Lublova knock seven goals past their side by that point, so perhaps some understanding is in order.
At the top, With first-place Yassaca facing sixth-place Emerald Coast, and second-place Megabrantid against sixth-place Algolia, there was real drama to be had. Damogran also had a very winnable match at home against V United, and still had a chance at the league if other results went their way. Royals had a slim chance to move up to second, but their match against Syneca was largely a dead rubber. At halftime, it appeared that Megabrantid were set to reclaim the crown from Yassaca, as the Tigers trailed the Emerald on a beauty of a volleyed goal by Nazahn, and Megabrantid led Algolia by one, courtesy of Takala while the Eagles and Hornets remained scoreless. The second half saw Yassaca claw a goal back after a long buildup saw the ball fall perfectly for Xhose at the edge of the box. Still, they’d need more, with Megabrantid still sitting a point ahead as long as their lead held. With the Tigers and the Firm looking set to pick up points, some of the wind came out of Damogran’s sails, and they conceded a bad goal to Nurmela, putting them very much behind the eight ball. As time ticked away, Algolia assailed the Megabrantid net with shots from anywhere and everywhere, knowing that Yassaca had to be doing the same. Only a win and an Emeralds loss could save the Suntigers’ IFCF hopes. IN the end they got neither. Eisenhauer finally managed to beat Xynat-Evela, but with just two minutes remaining, they couldn’t generate another shot, as Megabrantid were now pressing forward in their own desperation. In Vassilian, Yassaca couldn’t find the final breakthrough for the winning goal, but turned out not to need it. It’s worth noting that Yassaca have shattered the Superleague record for fewest goals conceded with this season’s total of 15, 6 fewer than the preview record of 21. Pity Royals also beat the record, conceding just 19, but will get little recognition for it.
In the relegation battle, Pivlic and Birdanan scored early for Athletic, more or less putting Brasta’s hopes of escaping the automatic drop to rest right out of the gate. When Vang and Volam likewise put Sporting up two before the half in Brantisvogan, it was really all over. The Red Flash managed to get one back off the foot of Ditou, and Brasta one from Foray, but it was too little too late.

With Interblag's demotion upheld, the playoff between League 1 and League 2 became unnecessary, and was cancelled. The SCFA instead ruled that third-placed Svetranj would be granted automatic promotion to League 1 instead, to keep league membership numbers even. In the matches that were contested, Miller's Rebels staved off relegation for the second time, though one wonders how many more of these nail-biting seasons the board will tolerate from him. To be fair though, the fifteen-match winless streak that he inherited to start his time at Sporting was not his fault, and it appears that Sporting will be willing to give him more than one full season to show that he can haul the Rebels up out of the Superleague basement. In the League 2-League 3 matchup, Granant got a pair of goals from Gurgen Dziubla to clinch their trip up to the third tier. The former Rangers striker has had a phenomenal impact for the Rovers. You have to wonder if Rangers might have managed a better season if they'd retained his services. After all, they were only idle today because of the unprecedented Interblag situation, and would otherwise have had to defend their spot in the second tier against Svetranj.

It was defensive prowess against attacking creativity, and the teams didn't disappoint. While Traal did their usual thing and sat back, waiting to counter, the match was hardly boring, as Brantisvogan's leaky defense mean plenty of opportunities presented themselves for the Oilers. Despite having her entire roster to choose from, Gannon elected to to replace Topić with regular starter Magnussen. Instead she allowed the teenage shot-stopper the chance to finish off her excellent cup run, and the young Pasargan responded, parrying away dangerous chances left and right as Vilhajalmsson and Maktar sought to make her team pay for its every mistake. Maktar did eventually find a way to beat her, but it took an incredible piece of skill to do so. Vilhajalmsson's low cross was slightly behind where it ought to have been, but the Sajnuran made the necessary adjustment, and backheeled the ball first time, catching Topić off guard and beating her to the low corner. At the other end, Kranat was tested less often, though not for lack of pressure. The defensive bulwark in front of here merely held more sturdily than Brantisvogan's, which maintained ten behind the ball almost at all times. Eventually though, a shrewd move by Gannon changed things, as she introduced young winger Arttu Ditou in place of Teke, who had picked up a knock early on, and began struggling early in the second. Almost immediately, his fresh legs and creative energy started creating opportunities on the right, and when his low cross was flicked on by Koppuri, Akkaynak got on the end of it for a smashed finish.
Both keepers were equal to the task through full time, however, despite each manager introducing additional subs, including a midfielder, Staspok, in place of a fullback from the normally conservative Daror. Around the midpoint of the first period of extra time, Brantisvogan broke through again, using a quick series of passes to create a local overload in the center of the field, and a shooting opportunity for Balan from just outside the box. Kranat dove for it, but had been leaning the wrong way when Balan fired, and couldn't catch up to the driven shot. Now Traal were in an uncomfortable position, having to chase the lead, and they shifted their formation, with Staspok moving up to the midfield line, the remaining defenders sliding across, and Vilhajalmsson thus being freed to go further forward to generally do whatever she wanted. It was a brilliant move, with the speedy Apoxian now popping up all over the field, Brantisvogan's defense could not keep her contained. Very soon after half time of extra time, she cut to the inside in front of Koppuri, played a quick give and go with Maktar, and was suddenly alone against Topić. She timed and weighted her touches perfectly, and dribbled wide around the keeper's charge before coolly slotting the ball home to even the score once again. As time wore down, neither side looked particulary likely to break through again, as they were both more concerned with allowing a chance for their opponent than creating any of their own. The substitutions late in extra time made it clear that both teams were playing for the shootout, with more attackers entering the field in place of defenders.
Traal won the coin toss and elected to shoot first. Maktar buried it in the top corner. Akkaynak followed suit in almost exactly the same spot, and the teams were deadlocked again. Now it was Vilhajalmsson's turn. The winger stared down Topić for a moment, and sent her the wrong way, not that she'd have likely gotten a hand to the driven shot had she guessed right. Syomin, subbed on for a flagging Koppuri scuffed his shot, but Kranat was already sprawling the wrong way, and it rolled past her feet as she scrambled to get back in position. Now Koppel, the former U21 international stepped up, took a short run with a pause, and sent her shot into Row Z. Ditou then, who had such an impact on the match creating chances, had a chance to put his team ahead. He converted, the ball slipping past under Kranat's hands, one finger not enough to stop it. O Connaíl stepped up next, the pressure mounting for each Traal shooter. She aimed left, but hammered the ball with the outside of her foot, sending it shuddering toward the right post instead. As Topić watched helplessly, it rebounded into the back of the net. McConnaugh was next, with Balan set to take the final kick for the Red Flash if needed. He wouldn't say post match if he was trying to respond to O Connaíl's tricky finish, or if he'd always intended to go for a trick shot. In any case, the Tikariotian winger took a long run up, and everyone in the stadium could tell he was going to shoot right. Kranat sidestepped along her line to prepare for the save. Then something strange happened. As McConnaugh planted his right foot to shoot, the ball leapt toward the left side of the goal. Kranat, actually caught in midair, had no time to react. McConnaugh had taken the shot with his plant foot, and now Routan, subbed on for Mlynarek just before full time, had to score or lose. He took his run up, stutter-stepped, then fired hard and low, but too near to the keeper. Topić pounced on the shot, then whirled and launched the ball skyward before being mobbed by her teammates.

Yassaca 3-0 Latrobe Athletic
Estadio Nacional (cap. 42,354), Navel Island, Whirl Islands
Like their semifinal triumph, it all started from the back for Yassaca. When your back line is on its game, your opponent can't maintain attacking pressure and possession. Everything builds from there. The more possession you have, the better your chances, the more desperate your opponent can become, the more they take chances, the more your back line takes the ball off them again. That was how it went for the Tigers in Navel Island. Latrobe, try as they might, just couldn't find their game. Chances slipped away on a moment's hesitation, or were aggressively shut down by Harkhan and her companions. Fed a steady stream of breakout passes through Coleman, the front five had plenty of opportunity to test different areas of the Latrobe defense, trying out different angles of attack to find the chinks in their armor. Ødegaard made it 1-0 shortly before the half, making a neat turn to generate just enough separation from Welland to allow him space for the shot. In the second it was Rallyton to double the lead before ten minutes had gone by, curling a free kick around both wall and keeper, with Connely only able to get a finger or two on it. Many must have felt at this point that the match was slipping away from Latrobe, and Yassaca were set to cruise to the finish. Latrobe had some fight left in them though, and a spirited pushback began. As before though, the Yassaca defense held its shape, and the back line was resolute, with Ekewakan cleaning up whatever leaked through. They did manage to create one glorious chance, with Stromby through on goal, but sending his effort high and wide. That, maybe was the moment when the match did slip away from Latrobe, as the Savojar crouched, head in hands. Or maybe it was five minutes later when a long-range shot by Xhose knuckled enough to elude Connely, putting his side down three with less than 20 to play. Latrobe kept their pride and pushed for one, but you could tell that the fire had gone out of them. For Yassaca, the defending pressure became fanatical in its intensity, and Ekewakan did not face another high-danger chance. As Rallyton and his teammates hoisted the Cup, orange and gray ribbons fluttering in the breeze, you really have to think that this league might be going places.

Season 10 Awards

Postby Squornshelan Remnant States » Mon Jul 05, 2021 3:17 pm

SCFA Season 10 Awards
are the players I award at each position definitively better than every other player in the league at that position? I dunno. Did they play better this season? Probably yes. Is the team of the season for the Superleague completely redundant given how many runners up I name? Definitely.

Signing of the Season:
Maja Topić, GK, BRN;
Runners-Up:
Dejan Zgela, ST, DAM; James Coronello, CB, ALG; Gualter Montez, LM, ECA
No new player led as directly to success for their club as Topić, who played all cup matches for the Red Flash. What initially began as a measure to provide rest for the A team quickly became a winning strategy, as Brantisvogan marched to the final and took home their first silverware in seven seasons. One wonders what could have been possible if Gannon had played her in league matches, but perhaps it was for the best to not overwork such a young player. Zgela was a close second, bringing a new dimension to Damogran’s attack and helping them to lead the league in goalscoring. Coronello’s presence brought an improvement of seven fewer goals conceded for Algolia, and even though their league position was worse, the Tikariotian was an inspired signing by Antal. Finally, and perhaps most unexpectedly, we have Gualter Montez. The Xannerian’s move from Lublova was far from the biggest story of the window, but the Emeralds saw something in him that other teams apparently didn’t, and he was an important piece in their surprise fifth-place finish.

Best Goalkeeper:
Argis Ekewakan, YAS
Runners-Up:
Dagmund Zarek, ROY; Xynat-Evela Cuf, MSC; Emery Russell, DAM
Some will trot out the tired old argument that Argis Ekewakan is a product of the superb defensive, possession keeping team in front of him. That is a gross oversimplification. Ekewakan is a part of their defensive system, and it would not work the same way without him there. Besides, the same could easily be said of our first runner up. Zarek also plays behind an excellent defensive line with a midfield that racks up big possession numbers. Both players make the big saves and the little ones, and in the end it’s a numbers game. For the remaining two spots, there are any number of players who could be named. Mikhulat of Chalesm and Widberg or V United both had solid seasons for their sides, but perhaps suffered in the view of some voters by also playing behind excellent back lines. In the end, despite perhaps not having the sheer numbers that some other keepers did, Xynat-Evela and Russell reliably found ways to make the clutch saves. They were also given quite a bit more work to do than keepers playing for more defensively minded teams.

Best Defender:
Walda Harkhan, YAS
Runners-Up:
Derron Nocturne, ROY; James Coronello, ALG; Fuchsia Longstreet, DAM
Yes, it’s annual talk-about-how-great-Walda-Harkhan-is Day again. What can you really say that hasn’t been said? Her team repeated as league champions, won the Challengers’ Cup, and set a new record for fewest goals conceded. Half a goal per match! She’s a complete player, she stands out among a collection of excellent defenders on the Yassaca back line, to the point that deserving candidates in Woodruff and Achthoven ended up left off this list. Taking a glance at the runners-up, we find several more very deserving players. Longstreet had a really excellent season after some up and down times so far with Damogran as the Eagles put together their most complete season in recent memory. Coronello gets a nod for the improvement to Algolia’s back line with his arrival, despite the fact they just missed IFCF qualification. Finally, Nocturne, who handles the difficult task of playing outside defender in a back three, and was tasked week in and week out with marking the opposition’s top striker. Royals results in terms of goals conceded speak to the job he did.

Best Midfielder:
Isla Ridenton, ROY
Runners-Up:
Linus Rallyton, YAS; Iuri Takala, MSC; Nicole D’Amico, DAM
A lot of impossibly tough questions had to be answered in selecting this winner. An argument could be made for as many as a dozen players to be deserving. Which of Yassaca’s four excellent midfielders played the most important role this season? Which of Damogran’s three is most deserving? Was Takala or Álvgeirsdóttir the more complete player for MSC? Can anyone think of a time when Ridenton put a foot wrong? Shouldn’t we also consider players from further down the table like Yoltz-Jonto, Akkaynak, or Luk? You begin to see the dilemma of dilemmas that confronted the voters. In the end though, Ridenton stands head and shoulders above her teammates in midfield, and thus stands out among a crowded field. Rallyton, captain and primary director of the attack can perhaps claim a tiny bit more credit for his team’s achievements than Coleman, Stern, or Xhose, and so takes second. Takala . . . is still Takala, and Megabrantid’s attack simply does not function the same when he isn’t on the field. Finally, D’Amico gets the nod over her Eagles teammates, Gyôrffy and Starosta. There’s precious little to separate those three, but D’Amico did have an edge in key pass completions.

Best Striker:
Mathias Ødegaard, YAS;
Runners-Up:
Dejan Zgela, DAM; Rinko Nazahn, ECA; Sigrid Eisenhauer, ALG
It would take something pretty special to overlook a golden boot winner for best striker, and this season is no exception. Zgela was a shot in the arm for Damogran, much as Ødegaard was for Yassaca last season, but the Vanorian just barely beats him in total goals, and in the esteem of the voters. It’s hard to find fault with either one of them, but the leading scorer and main weapon of a Challengers’ Cup and Superleague leading team is a pretty compelling pick for best striker. Zgela can hopefully take inspiration from second place, and channel that into another great season, with the opportunity for a Challengers’ Cup run of his own. A bit behind the top two, we find Rinko Nazahn, who must be feeling a fair amount of vindication regarding the debacle with Real Gardaresso a couple seasons back. Her superb (and quite possibly unsustainable) accuracy was a big part of Emerald Coast’s surge into the top five. Finally, there’s Eisenhauer. There’s always Eisenhauer. It seems discussion of the best strikers is never complete without Algolia’s spearhead. Is she a step slower than when she first arrived? Almost certainly. Can she still open space with a touch and fire for the top corner? Ask any Superleague center half.

Best Young Player (U-21):
Maja Topić, GK, BRN
Runners-Up:
Hannah Kim, CB, TRA; Tom McConnaugh, LW, BRN; Dara Davidian, CM, ROY
There were several interesting candidates this season, with four players under 21 listed regularly in their clubs’ starting lineups, and several others featuring off the bench. These players are found in positions all across the field, from McConnaugh’s creative work on the wing of Brantisvogan’s precocious midfield, to Kim, who continues to grow by leaps and bounds, despite a tough year overall for the Oilers. Davidian was one of those who made her name known with bench appearances, taking full advantage of the opportunity to learn from the excellent midfield players at Royals. In the end though, it’s impossible to overlook the teenaged goalkeeper whose excellent play was the biggest factor in helping Brantisvogan capture the Cup in what was otherwise very much a down season. At just 16, Topić could very well be starting a collection of Young Player awards.

Best Foreign Player:
Isla Ridenton, CM, ROY
Runners-Up:
Mathias Ødegaard, ST, YAS; Linus Rallyton, CM, YAS; Derron Nocturne, RB, ROY
It's just stupidly close here.

Manager of the Year:
Danyal Masalkar, ROY
Runners-Up:
Kalyana Sherazi, ECA; Irfun Melkum, YAS; Elrik Raskine, DAM
More tough decisions to be had here. Melkum might have been deserving of another win, but probably loses points with a few voters based on the obvious talent of his team. Larry Bryson's absence from this list can be attributed to the same bias. It's not as simple as throwing a bunch of talent on the field and letting them go wild, but such is life in sports sometimes. Sherazi would definitely be the favorite for the team-we-thought-would-be-bad-but-was-actually-good vote, and certainly dserves her position here for the job she's done molding what is still a fairly young Emeralds team. Masalkar, who was quiet in the transfer window, gets the win based on continuing to develop Royals' young talent and getting the best out of their players. Raskine has to feel a little hard done by, having done much the same thing with his defense and midfield, and finding the perfect player to add to the mix to get them back to the IFCF. If the Eagles had held onto third place the final matchday, he probably would have won.

Team of the Season:
First Team: Argis Ekewakan (YAS); Derron Nocturne (ROY), Walda Harkhan (YAS), James Coronello (ALG), Taisiya Achthoven (YAS); Nicole D’Amico (DAM), Isla Ridenton (ROY), Linus Rallyton (YAS), Yoltz-Jonto Cel (ECA); Mathias Ødegaard (YAS), Dejan Zgela (DAM)

City: Damogran, Algolia
Stadium: Albrechtsson Park (cap. 65,400)
Nickname(s): The Suntigers
Coaches:
Manager: Dolvin Antal 62 y/o
Assistants: Perrin Chabchoub 50 y/o, Amin Kaldora 49 y/o
Captain: Danin Stolp
Notable Products: Roffen Ritschl, Terun Cadash, Bruenna Savo
Club Summary: One of the oldest clubs in the confederacy, Algolia has been around since well before the war. In the old days, it was seen more as the team of the upper class of Damogran, and in the years following the war, its supporters were often seen as sympathetic to the Imperium. Algolia supporters are more likely to be from the eastern and northern suburbs of Damogran, and a slight income disparity between them and supporters of the other big Damogran clubs remains, fueling resentment. They also enjoy a spirited rivalry against Royals, another team traditionally associated with white-collar supporters. Matches with the big Brantisvogan clubs are also a big affair, especially when there are championship implications. Despite all their success, however, Algolia hasn't quite caught on as a nationwide brand, and their support is still mostly concentrated in and around Damogran, and western Algolia generally.
Rivals: Damogran (local/historical/competitive), Jaglan Royals (regional/historical), Athletic (local)
Trophy Case: League 1 (S2), Supercup (S3)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 9th
S7: Superleague - 4th
S8: Superleague - 2nd
S9: Superleague - 4th
S10: Superleague - 6th

This Year: The Suntigers were perhaps a season late in starting the reshuffle of their attack. With scoring down significantly and a negative goal differential, they slipped out of IFCF position, though they did salvage a finish good enough to earn the privilege of applying for the VCI. Wasting no time at all, they've immediately set about improving the team. Holstege gets a gold watch and a grand sendoff for her retirement, while Rebljeten's departure is less ceremonious, heading to Vantanoch to try and make something of his last few season in the TPL. No not in Taeshan, that's done with, it's Tikariot these days. The two mil and change he nets them added to the one and a half they get from Rangers for Falayam mean that their spending outburst only ends up costing them less than four out of pocket. The big acquisition is Julia Kamasz, no doubt. Escaping from Rovers relegation along with her Confederate teammate Aravit, she'll be a welcome infusion of youth and skill in the midfield. Thorgilsson likewise, was a good player on a bad team last season, and should be a welcome addition. How smooth will the transition be though? Presic and Eisenhauer have been the leaders of this attack for some time now, but the time for transition is nearing. Mishra will likely get a larger share of time off the bench. Further back in the midfield, expect Yalwan to spell Yunal-Julad more and more often. Fortunately for the Suntigers, they are as skilled at the back as any team in the league with the exception of Yassaca. If the attack takes some time to get its new dynamic sorted out, they'll be able to count on Ross and Co. to steal a few points here and there. Overall, it looks like a transitional season for the Suntigers. They'll be contenders again, and soon, but not just now.

City: Damogran, Algolia
Stadium: Overburg Arena (cap. 46,222)
Nicknames: Athletic, the Furies
Coaches:
Manager: Ucyxi-Slokt Eva, 30 y/o (player-manager)
Assistants: Aitz Mynskat (54 y/o), Jathan Lynnar (56 y/o)
Captain: Lavinia Pivlic
Notable Products: Vrenz Tambura, Slater Jant
Club Summary: Founded by former Damogran FC goalkeeper Pyotr Nedvinsky, Athletic has always had a sort of sibling rivalry toward their older, more successful, and more afflent neighbors. That said, they've often been a solid club in their own right, and have spent recent years either as a decent bottom half team in the top tier, or as one of the best teams in the second tier. Upset-minded, but inconsistent may be the best summation of the club's overall reputation. Fan groups coordinate their wardrobe on match days to create stripes, checkerboards, or other designs of Athletic's orange and purple in the stands.
Rivals: Damogran (local), Algolia (local), Sporting Jaglan (regional/competitive), Emerald Coast (regional/competitive)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S8), League 1 (S9), League 2 (S1), Supercup (S9)
League Form:
S6:  League 1    - 2nd
S7: Superleague - 12th
S8: Superleague - 15th
S9: League 1 - 1st
S10: Superleague - 13th

This Year: The first season up is always a tough one, and Athletic made it through, if only just. You can't help but feel a little underwhelmed though, by a second straight transfer window that sees them add just a single player. In this case the newcomer is Tikariotian Greg Akwei, who looks set to replace an aging Nikya Paecht up front. A power forward with a good touch, but not the quickest, Akwei is a capable replacement, but not the kind of player who can satisfy a fanbase as a club's sole addition for the season. So we look to the returning cast to find the players who can keep the Furies up for another season. Saotisohi and Somogyi are definitely into their prime now, just as much as Pivlic and Birdanan have left theirs behind. The back line is . . . ok? Wibowo is very much a question mark out left though. They can at least depend on Heron to make a fair number of saves that he really shouldn't. Still, as much as Ucyxi-Slokt seems not quite to have gotten a handle on transfers yet, having an entire season of top flight football now under their belt can only be a boost to their tactical prowess. The veterans in midfield will be the leaders for this team, and if they can manage possession well there, they should be a borderline mid-table side.

City: Brantisvogan, Megabrantis
Stadium: Radlov Arena (cap. 76,800)
Nickname(s): The Red Flash
Coaches:
Manager: Bess Gannon (NPH) 53 y/o
Assistants: Kurtis Rough (NPH) 44 y/o, Alder Salloba 41 y/o
Captain: Intov-Helek Duk
Notable Products: Ayli Galdra, Jirar Malgos, Aatu Ruoho
Club Summary: BFC are a very wealthy and well-supported club with a long history. Their original association was with the upper class, particularly the Squornshelan ruling elite in the days when Brantisvogan was the capital of West Squornshelous. In fact, until the war, the Imperial Viceroy held an honorary position as club president by tradition. While this old association is often brought up by opposing fans, the modern fanbase spans a broad cross-section of Brantids, and the real reason for resentment is more likely the club's consistent presence in the top tier, and their nationwide support. Nothing is as obnoxious as watching your neighbors, who ought to support their hometown club, jump on the bandwagon of a rich, successful team like Brantisvogan. While Brantisvogan's traditional rival is Chalesm, in more recent years their biggest match of the year has come against nouveau-riche, cross-town rivals, MSC.
Rivals: Chalesm (historical/regional), Megabrantid (local)
Trophy Case: Superleague (S3), Confederacy Cup (S10)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 7th
S7: Superleague - 10th
S8: Superleague - 11th
S9: Superleague - 9th
S10: Superleague - 11th

This Year: Deliver something other than mediocrity or start packing your stuff. The mission is pretty clear this season for Bess Gannon. Last season was meant to be another step back toward league relevance, but ended up being a return to where the team was when she started. Without the deep cup run and championship, she'd likely have been on the job market already. First order of business, it's all in on teenage sensation Topić in net. The back four also gets shuffled, with the Yamashita twins shipped off to Græntfjall, and five million spent to bring in Rodwell and Frank as upgrades. Up front, the consistently inconsistent Koppuri is done, also headed for Græntfjall incidentally. Yuezhou reserve international Ji Weibo will replace him, and with that the projected first team front four for the Red Flash this season will have less than 90 years of existence between them on opening day. Intov-Helek and Soule will stick around as veteran leaders, but Gannon really does seem to be betting the farm on the team's kids to bail her out. Whether it works or backfires, the result is likely to be spectacular either way. Personally, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Brantisvogan are too good and too storied a club to remain mired in mediocrity forever. The Red Flash are finally back.

City: Chalesm, Megabrantis
Stadium: Raftel Park (cap. 59,870)
Nickname(s): The Blues
Coaches:
Manager: Sigurkarl Kristiansson (GRF) 59 y/o
Assistants: Zeynab Konul 49 y/o, Rizwan Dubagi 55 y/o
Captain: Izoni Hocij
Notable Products: Zoban Ajao, Shrike Hagaz
Club Summary: Chalesm is another very old club with a long tradition of excellence dating back well before the war. As the biggest club in the new capital (can it still be called new as its centennial gradually nears?) they are natural rivals of Brantisvogan, and the Capital Derby is one of the highlights of the SCFA season. Chalesm is, in fact, the only club of any real significance in the capital, which is unusual for a city its size. Third/Fourth tier side Revolution are a distant second when competing for supporters.
Rivals: Brantisvogan (historical/regional), Megabrantid (regional)
Trophy Case: Superleague (S6), Supercup (S7)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 1st
S7: Superleague - 6th
S8: Superleague - 7th
S9: Superleague - 10th
S10: Superleague - 9th

This Year: Kristiansson managed to stop the bleeding last season, halting a steady slide from an increasingly distant championship into the bottom half. Now comes the harder part, of hauling the team back up into relevance, while all around you everyone else is trying to do the same thing. Of the players joining the club this season, the two paid transfers are certainly good additions, but all eyes are on the frees. Anthonsson and Gerstlauer might be the two of the very best free transfers in the history of the SCFA. It's certainly not every day you have the chance to add the nation's second-best striker at no cost, nor another nation's top goalkeeper, also for free. Kristiansson is known much more for stubbornly defensive teams and stolid holding midfield tactics, but when you have a chance to add a player of Gerstlauer's quality, you don't sit around wondering how she's going to fit into your tactics. In any case, she should be brilliant, and will be a real boon for an attacking midfield that was just not getting a lot done last season. Daire Gilran, who was likely hoping for a chance to start more often, may not welcome the move, but if so he'll be the only one in Chalesm who feels that way. In the center of midfield, such a crucial area in a Kristiansson team, Oljanen returns, joined by Matthew Morgan, who is coming off a rough season but has shown flashes of brilliance in his home country. In those two and last season's newcomer Robin, Kristiansson seems to hope he's found a long-time midfield trio. At the back, Anthonsson should be a relatively seamless transition from Mustahil behind a back line that was one of the team's definite bright spots a season ago. This is a good team that will be a big surprise for some of last season's front runners.

Club Summary: The other of the big Damogran clubs, Damogran FC are rich in tradition and in currency. While in their old days they were more of a lower-class club, greatly improved income equality since the war has lessened that distinction. Damogran are the best-supported club in Damogran, and in Algolia as a whole, and their fanbase today comes from all walks of life. Most Algolian football fans without a strong connection to another club would probably list Damogran as their favorite club, and the fanbase has a reputation for traveling very well, frequently rivaling the home support with the volume of their chants. While many fans from outside Algolia will frequently refer to the club as Damogran FC, sometimes abbreviated to Damo FC, to avoid confusion with Athletic, Damogran's fans generally find this insulting, and bluntly refuse to see any room for ambiguity. "We're Damogran, they're Athletic, and that's all there is to it."
Rivals: Algolia (local/competitive), Athletic (local), Jaglan Royals (regional)

League Form:

S10: Superleague - 4th

This Year: After duplicating their best finish in the Superleague era, Damogran were confident enough in their team and development to stand more or less pat in the transfer window. They parted ways with a few surplus players, but didn’t spend the money on much of anything. Reinforcements at the back will be needed soon, but the Eagles apparently didn’t see the right players to fill the shoes that will presumably soon be vacated by Russell, Walker, and Moreland. Krark and Foroghi are both good candidates for the center back job, and will have something of an audition season. Nedels, who joins from Hunian at left back is not the caliber of player they need, and will be a depth option. Still, Walker isn’t done just yet, and Damogran, having gotten by on the cheap this window, will have money to spend next time around. The good news is that the attack is strong once again, with Zgela having proved an inspired signing and D’Amico, Gyôrffy, and Starosta still one of the best midfield combinations in the league. It might have been a good idea for the team to bring in another striker, as neither Prokop nor Akkeren has yet been the kind of dynamic player wanted to help the attack transcend the boundary between very good and great. Consistency has always been the struggle for the Eagles. Two Challengers Cup appearances in their past three seasons is certainly good, but they need to manage two consecutive if they’re going to be recognized as a true member of the Confederacy’s top echelon. Finally managing to finish better than fourth place would also be nice.

Club Summary: Left-out of the big Algolian rivalries of the Damogran and Jaglan clubs, Emerald Coast have a much more laid back image, something which can also be said of their home, Algolia's third-largest city, Vassilian. That doesn't stop them from contesting heated rivalries with Athletic and Sporting Jaglan though. The club's history is one of relative mediocrity, generally seeing them finish somewhere in the bottom half of the top league, with occasional trips down to the second tier. Despite that, they are generally well-respected as a club that excels at developing young players.
Rivals: Sporting Jaglan (regional/competitive), Athletic (regional/competitive), Vassilian City (local), Hunian (regional)
Trophy Case: N/A
League Form:
S5:  Superleague - 14th
S6: League 1 - 5th
S7: League 1 - 2nd
S8: Superleague - 9th
S9: Superleague - 12th
S10: Superleague - 5th

This Year: Well that was unexpected. After seasons of yo-yo status with inevitable lower-half finishes when in the top tier, Sherazi’s side put together an improbable run of good form that culminated in clinching their first ever IFCF appearance. Probably not a sustainable level of performance for a club of their means, but that hasn’t stopped the Emeralds from going after some big reinforcements in the window. Satisfied with their current attacking setup, they shipped off a couple young depth players to raise part of the five million they laid out bringing in help on the back line. Savigliane international Romano joins after a couple seasons squeaking by with Sporting. She should be a seamless upgrade from Geladi, whose speed had really abandoned him as nagging injuries piled up last season. She’s a player who likes to get forward when she can and does so capably. On the other side, it’s Ralox-Relaf, who endured one relegation and return with Brasta, but has chosen not to follow them to the second tier again. Between them joining Zaxac-Fenaz on the back line and midfield dynamo Yoltz-Jonto, Vassilian has become the place to be for the young generation of Qusmi’y in the Confederacy. Not everything is necessarily rosy for the Emeralds though, as there are definite question marks in the lineup heading into the season. The biggest of these is Walat, who will likely be called upon to play nearly every minute, as the depth chart behind him is even younger and less experienced than he. They’re still a pretty good team, but with so much improvement among last season’s midtable, will it be enough? Probably not for anyone who hopes for another IFCF berth, but they're definitely in no danger of relegation at all.

Assistants: Javaid Bulavir 52 y/o, Vaarin Strepol 38 y/o
Captain: Isla Ridenton
Notable Products: Mithya Hashemi, Kaalia Gerstlauer
Club Summary: Founded well before the war, Royals original patron was the king of Algolia, who was briefly allowed to keep a ceremonial title after Imperial annexation of his kingdom. As a result, they are perhaps the only old, upper-class club in the Confederacy that had little to no association in the minds of fans with the old Imperial regime. One of the most heartwarming traditions in Confederate football can be witnessed each year when Royals host Algolia. The patients of a local children's hospital are all crowned honorary Kings and Queens of Jaglan, and are granted free admission to the match with their families.
Rivals: Damogran (regional/competitive), Algolia (regional/competitive), Sporting Jaglan (local)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S6)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 8th
S7: Superleague - 3rd
S8: Superleague - 5th
S9: Superleague - 6th
S10: Superleague - 3rd

This Year: After a solid showing that won Masalkar Manager of the Season, Royals are a highly experienced team that will try to pull off the delicate dance of beginning to reload an aging roster with fresh talent without slipping too much in league position. This window, it was Premyr hanging up her boots and Mevlya returning home after a long stint in Jaglan. Lapisonde also takes his leave seeking a starting role after a solid stint as an important depth defender for Royals. Tikariotian Vologoha gets the promotion to join the back three, and the club looked to the window for new talent up front. The new striker of the now is clearly Irwinn, who had a great season helping Olympia to their League 1 title and earned himself the move to a contender. Him joining Kaidanov should give Royals a pretty solid one-two punch at striker. They also added a more speculative future option for the position. Dyxkeson, even at just sixteen, has all the height managers dream about in a striker, but weighs about as much as a wet paper towel. He’ll likely not see much of the field until he’s managed to put on a few pounds, but has plenty of time for that. Certain players in defense and midfield are starting to get just a little long in the tooth, but they're still fresh enough for at least one more run at the top four.

City: Lublova, Molvania

Nickname(s): The Reds (no kidding)
Coaches:
Manager: Seneca Matthews (NPH) (55 y/o)

Captain: Raibel Peikola
Notable Products: Jzeovak Vladcik, Demkjo Jzvanic, Djabgor Dzarkhin, Dymek Raktsov
Club Summary: Molvania's second team by fan support, it's probably fair to call the Reds the most consistent team in Molvania. They are a safe bet for a mid-table finish most years, and occasionally break into the title race. Their supporters are known as heavy drinkers, but generally hooliganism is minimal. (honestly, if there's a team whose fans don't have a reputation for drinking, I've yet to hear of them). Lublova's steppe nomad heritage is on display at Reds matches though, with elaborate traditional costumes to be found everywhere. Impromptu bareback horse races have even been known to break out at pre-match parties.
Rivals: Interblag (regional/historical), Lokomotiv Dzrebo (regional), Dynamo Bardjov (regional), Dynamo Lublova (local)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (S9)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 12th
S7: Superleague - 11th
S8: Superleague - 10th
S9: Superleague - 3rd
S10: Supeleague - 7th

This Year: Last season was a test of how Lublova could follow up an unexpected success. They failed. The Reds finished in seventh, and crashed out of the cup before making much of an impact. This season will test their ability to endure the loss of key players and keep going. Team captain Clayton and talismanic left wing Ashbrown have both called it quits, leaving gaping holes on the left side of the lineup. Here, last season’s acquisition of Viadzo looks brilliant, as the Sjerezo product showed a few flashes of ability in relief of Ashbrown. Davis looks like the choice to fill the gap at left back, though Jagoda will provide some competition for the starting role. Likewise, newcomer Traverse will join the first team back line on the right, with a capable young backup in Valz. A glance elsewhere at the lineup shows how Matthews has built the Reds into a team loaded with young talent and potential. Nemov joins from the implosion of Interblag as a possible successor for Peikola down the road. Nedeljkovic and Wojewodka are as exciting a pair of young strikers as you’ll find anywhere in the league, and Szimon at the back has already earned herself a few national team callups. In midfield, Siegel will be looked to as more of a leader now that Ashbrown and Caldryn are gone from the attack. No one doubts the team’s potential, but now that Matthews has had enough time to tailor the lineup to her liking, she has to get them to deliver results. Third two seasons ago was nice, and even seventh last season is a better place than she found the club in, but the Reds board is likely eying a return to genuine contention, and the team will have to live up to that soon if this young core is to stay together. It's a task they've been unconvincing at thus far.

City: Brantisvogan, Megabrantis
Stadium: Megabrantid Financial Field (cap. 69,245)
Nickname(s): The Firm, MSC
Coaches:
Manager: Larry Bryson (CBP) (57 y/o)
Assistants: Rahul Kaara (57 y/o), Manakei Kuboushet (54 y/o)
Captain: Iuri Takala
Notable Products: Joris Elzokari, Danin Enesca, Isperia Marrish
Club Summary: MSC lack the long history of their biggest rivals, Chalesm and Brantisvogan, but make up for it with massive amounts of money. Bankrolled by the Confederacy's biggest financial conglomerate, Megabrantid United Financial, they have (some say) bought their way into the top flight of the SCFA, and look to be there to stay. When the chips are down they can probably out-spend any other club in the Confederacy. While some fans of older clubs may still view them as newcomers, MSC clearly has broad ambitions, and intends to cement themselves as a force to be reckoned with both in the SCFA and internationally.
Rivals: Brantisvogan (local), Chalesm (regional), Algolia (competitive), Yassaca (competitive)
Trophy Case: Challengers Cup (IFCF cycle 4), Superleague (S5, S7, S8), Confederacy Cup (S2, S7), SCFA Supercup (S6)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 3rd
S7: Superleague - 1st
S8: Superleague - 1st
S9: Superleague - 2nd
S10: Superleague - 2nd

This Year: Something just feels off. With top 3 finishes in five consecutive seasons, MSC are the most consistently excellent club in the Superleague. Gelan-Yivix steps away from the game after a sterling career, but they’re the only substantial loss. The club also got the replacement they wanted at striker, though not in the way they wanted her. Clubs from Darmen, Chromatika and Eura joined Megabrantid in the bidding war for Nepharan phenom Bravura Harper, and in the end it was Ulsa who won out for her coveted signature, despite not having a spot for her in this season’s first team. Accordingly, they determined to loan her out to one of the other contenders, and in the end, it’s the Firm who won the privilege of employing her, if only for a season. Her presence should greatly ease the transition at striker, even if the club are still in search of a permanent solution. In midfield, the handover from Takala and Teklu to Álvgeirsdóttir and Dast is underway. Takala certainly hasn’t lost a step yet, though can the same be said of Teklu? At the back the defense is, well, kind of old. Perhaps that’s the most obvious area of concern. Mega has brought in some young players to prepare the future of the back line, Dong, Titov, and Jakšić in particular. Still, it’s an awkward period in that department. Despite the obvious quality on the roster, there’s a feeling of instability surrounding the Firm this season. This prediction will certainly ruffle some feathers in Brantisvogan, but as competitive as the league is shaping up to be, the Firm could easily end up on the outside looking in for the first time in a very long time.

Club Summary: Olympia were founded not long before the war by the Imperial mayor. Accordingly, they were hated by most of the Confederacy, and have not been wholly able to shake off the association with far-right groups and authoritarianism, especially since some of their ultras groups are known for chants and banners that are politically incorrect to say the least (the club has banned several of these groups from matches but they often find ways to sneak in). Despite all this, their support is strong in and around Arkintoofle. Of late, they've had a reputation for badly behaved players, and lackluster performance on the field, though that tide may finally be turning.
Trophy Case: League 1 (S6, S10)
Rivals: Arkintoofle United (local), UFC Flamarion (regional), Viltvodle City (regional), Viltvodle United (regional)
League Form:
S6:  League 1    - 1st
S7: Superleague - 16th
S8: League 1 - 10th
S9: League 1 - 4th
S10: League 1 - 1st

This Year: Olympia have a problem. Their attack, best in League 1 a season ago, has been gutted. Both wings have opted for retirement after the triumphant championship season. Up front, Irwinn has been lured away to Royals. They’ve brought in an infusion of promising youth to replace these losses, but they’re going to be asking a lot of some very young players who will have to develop chemistry on the fly. Fortunately, captain Grenzo Borkowski returns, lending the attack some valuable stability and veteran leadership. Unfortunately, he’s 34, and his best days athletically are definitely behind him. At the back, Yassaca product Ahlzweig and Megabrantid product Haldon are joined by another former Megabrantid player in Malanta, who replaces Scarzam in net. The defense should be decent at least, but the attack is anyone’s guess. The new centerpiece, Swerdlen is used to playing at a high level, coming back to the Confederacy after four seasons in Valanora. Also coming from the Eternal Empire is Vilitan winger Samii, on loan from Mar Sara. He’s a natural left wing, but rumor has it that part of the objective of his loan is to diversify his skill set and get him more accustomed to playing other positions. That’s just as well, because the starter at left mid looks to be the Poafmer, Fry. Look to see a fair amount of Etoba and Arkhipov for Olympia this season as well though.Unfortunately for the Olympics, your first season after promotion is not the best time to rebuild your entire attack with youngsters, and they look set to struggle.

Nickname(s): The Rebels
Coaches:
Manager: Devane Miller (QUE)
Assistants:
Captain: Lyyti Vang
Notable Products: Rinko Nazahn, Eetu Nazarov, Ayli Orzhova
Club Summary: Sporting, like Athletic in Damogran, are the smaller, poorer club in Jaglan, and Royals fans have never let them forget it. As in so many other cases, this imbalance in spending power and prestige has become a point of pride for Sporting's supporters, and years of trash talking against a club styling itself as "Royal" have made Sporting something of a magnet for radical anti-authoritarians and anarchists. Their green and red hooped jerseys are frequently seen at political protests, and even being hustled into the back of police vans, something the club generally maintains an uneasy silence about. All publicity is good publicity though.
Rivals: Jaglan Royals (local), Emerald Coast (regional/competitive), Athletic (regional/competitive)
Trophy Case: League 1 (S7)
League Form:
S6:  League 1    - 9th
S7: League 1 - 1st
S8: Superleague - 13th
S9: Superleague - 14th
S10: Superleague - 14th

This Year: How much longer can Sporting be satisfied with just scraping by? Twice in a row now they’ve had to defend their spot in the Superleague in a relegation playoff, and have only just made it out alive on both occasions. For the second straight season, Miller has effected wholesale change on the roster, to the point that only three starters remain from the first team of two seasons ago. This window, it’s the back line that gets most of the attention, as the Rebels’ defense was atrocious. Sluzarski and Rebsch are out after bad showings, the former opting for a fresh start abroad and the latter choosing retirement. Romano is also out, likely frustrated with a lack of progress since the joined the team. Instead, she jumps ship to join their rivals hoping to help Emeralds follow up on last season’s excellent result. She’s sure to hear about it from the Sporting ultras upon her return this season. A cosmopolitan cast of defenders will step into their shoes, and should if nothing else bring a fresh outlook, rather than the apparent resignation to conceding goals that has seemed so characteristic of Sporting. In the attack, it’s definitely still the Squornshelan duo of Vang and Volam who are the focus, with a capable supporting cast. Orgatz is the one change in this area of the field, with Bois-Miller stepping in, one of three players joining from the former South Newlandian league system. It’s a lot of turnover for one team to absorb in a single window, but if Miller’s message, namely that the effort and execution to this point has simply not been good enough, we could see some improvement. Finally.

City: Syneca, Sivolvia
Stadium: Synesoft Arena (cap. 38,600)
Nickname(s): The Sea Lions
Coaches:
Manager: Daniel Lucas (CMT) 50 y/o
Assistants: Ipella Grieti (55 y/o),
Captain: Olivier Oisette
Notable Products: Lyzolda Petrov
Club Summary: The Sea Lions lived up to their reputation as one of the Confederacy's most unpredictable clubs winning the championship seemingly out of nowhere in Season 4. They've struggled to follow up on that success though. Their own youth pipeline has frequently let them down of late, but an impressive eye for talent in the transfer window has propelled them through the longest stay in the top tier of their history. Syneca's tourist image tends to be more on the side of debauchery and party culture than most cities over the border in Algolia, something the renewed presence of top-tier football can only exacerbate.
Rivals: Yassaca (regional/competitive), Brasta (regional), Hunian (regional), FC Bayfront (local)
Trophy Case: Superleague (S4)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 2nd
S7: Superleague - 8th
S8: Superleague - 12th
S9: Superleague - 11th
S10: Superleague - 10th

This Year: 12th, 11th, 10th. Syneca have been stuck in first gear these few seasons, and it’s been difficult to say exactly why. They’ve made changes to management, to the roster, shuffled their tactics and formation. Nothing seems to work. This window, granted a fairly free hand by the club, Lucas had trouble landing some of his targets. He lost out on Sayer and Vodsavo for the opening at left back, eventually landing Rodier, who can’t be particularly comforted to know he was his manager’s third choice. On the other side of the back line, Storvoll is a capable defender, but no spring chicken at 33. The central duo of Oisette and Brown remains dependable but is also not getting any younger. The team has also brought in Sokolov from the Squornshelan national team, joining returning starters Si, Bradshaw and Michiki, with Malicki looking like more of a supersub option, at least for the moment. Still, there’s something that’s just not quite convincing about this Syneca team. They’ve tried to hard to make the case that their surprise championship wasn’t a mere fluke driven by the best striker duo in the league’s history. With every season that passes though, that impression sinks in more and more. Another mediocre showing could see some major shakeups, as both Lucas and Si are rumored to be losing patience with bottom-half finishes. Unfortunately, while they’ve avoided actively getting worse, the Sea Lions just don’t seem to have kept pace with the teams like Chalesm and Brantisvogan that they’ll need to overtake if they want to return to relevance.

City: Traal, East Flania
Stadium: Flanoil Arena (cap. 50,350)
Nickname(s): The Oilers, The Snowmen
Coaches:
Manager: Lopal Daror (70 y/o)
Assistants: Binita Jarzadeg (49 y/o), Haluk Yeruva (46 y/o)
Captain: Reuter Storsjo

Club Summary: Traal is not an easy place to live. The harbor is icebound over half of the year, and the retractable roof of the Flanoil Arena end ups closed more often than not. Despite that, Traal Athletics has survived as a club since well before the war, and is thriving today, due in large part to an excellent scouting department and a front office that maintains good business relationships with other teams around the country. Accordingly, Traal is often able both to identify young talent in lower league, and to secure transfer agreements with those clubs. Frequently, Traal reciprocates by sending its own developing talent out on loan deals to teams it has bought players from. They have a particularly good relationship with League 2 side, Porters. While Traal's lower operating budget necessitates more frequent changes in personnel, the one constant is that no matter how outspent or outmatched Traal seem to be, they always find a way to contend with the richer clubs of Algolia and Megabrantis. This is probably owed in large part to the loyalty of manager Daror, who is widely regarded as the best Confederate manager there is.
Rivals: Brantisvogan (competitive), Lublova Reds (competitive), Flania Traal (local)
Tropy Case: League 1 (S1), Confederacy Cup (S1, S3), SCFA Supercup (S4)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 5th
S7: Superleague - 5th
S8: Superleague - 8th
S9: Superleague - 7th
S10: Superleague - 12th

This Year: A run of nine straight top-half finishes ended for Traal last season, and you’d be lying if you said it wasn’t expected. This is a club that has been treading water almost it seems since their league championship ten seasons ago. Event this season, with team captain Tervi Oleb retiring, they made no additions to the back line, and there’s every indication that Lopal Daror will shift from his trademark 5-4-1 to a more standard 4-4-2. It’s the right decision, given the personnel moves that were possible this off-season, but is it really a decision he’s made proactively, or just an admission of defeat after failing to land another first-team quality center back? Either way, the back line should be fine. Kim and Marko represent the future of this team, should the Oilers prove able to retain both of them. Storsjo, who takes over the captaincy, is still a solid fullback, even considering his advancing age. In midfield, Rapp will be a capable contributor, and adding Kirylenko for depth will definitely strengthen the team. If the formation shift holds, Koppel will finally see appreciable playing time, and her presence will take some of the pressure to facilitate every attack will be taken on Maktar. It should be of benefit to both of them. Still, this feels like a team that is just scrambling to plug holes, rather than planning how it’s going to win. Above I’ve praised the addition of depth to the midfield, which is important for any team to make a consistent run through the season with schedule congestion and injuries playing their role. Still, having good players on the bench doesn’t always do a lot for you since they’re, you know, not on the field. Even for great managers, the time comes when they simply don’t command the team anymore, when the best thing to do is to move on. Sad to say, that time has come for Lopal Daror.

Club Summary: United are the slightly larger, slightly older club, but in almost every regard are equivalent to City in footballing terms. Their support comes more from the suburbs, and the West side of the city in particular. Those fans are in a perpetual state of denial about their relation to V City, firmly believing that their club's true rivals are teams like Chalesm and Royals. The fact of the matter is that United and City are two peas in a pod, and seem destined to wrestle with each other in the bottom half of the Superleague for all time. It'll take something special to separate the two, and the haughtiness of certain United fans stands in defiance of reality.
Rivals:Viltvodle City (local), Chalesm (regional), Olympia Arkintoofle (regional)

S6:  Superleague - 15th
S7: League 1 - 12th
S8: League 1 - 2nd
S9: Superleague - 5th
S10: Superleague - 8th

This Year: Ok, so fifth a couple seasons ago was not a sustainable performance for this team, but they still managed top half last season, and are quickly building a reputation as a defensive bulwark that even the Damograns and Megabrantids of the league have difficulty breaking through. They raise no money from outgoing players though, instead losing two defenders and a winger to retirement, though only two of those are first teamers. Replacing them are Skapoulis, Nepharan escapee from the downfall of the Taeshan Premier League, and loanee Ariel Bruce, who is hoping to make a case to be considered for the Poafmersian national team. The rest of the first team is unchanged, which might be a good thing, and might not, depending on what you think of teams that depend on being more than the sum of their parts. They should be good enough to avoid the drop, but haven’t done anything near what would be necessary to keep pace with the influxes of talent elsewhere in the league. Then again, they could surprise us all again, but it doesn’t seem all that likely.

Assistants: Vodrin Fankrag (57 y/o), Awarvis Skiaro (48 y/o)
Captain: Aatu Ruoho
Notable Products: Dermot Hilargi, Gurgen Raynott, Ronit Somhair
Club Summary: A distinctly smaller club than their cross-town rivals, Rangers, Wavel AC have nonetheless built themselves into a perennial contender in League 1. In fact, they've finished ahead of Rangers more often than not in the Superleague era, something they don't let their larger rivals forget. While the entire state of Han Dold is more interested in ice hockey as a rule, any meeting between one of their big four football clubs is a major affair.
Trophy Case: N/A
Rivals: Wavel Rangers (local), Han Dold City (regional), Canyons (regional)
League Form:
S6:  League 1 - 4th
S7: League 1 - 6th
S8: League 1 - 4th
S9: League 1 - 3rd
S10: League 1 - 2nd

This Year: Oof do Wavel look out of their depth. They lose three important leaders to retirement, and their best striker bolts for a payday in Quebec. They landed the Squornshelan NT’s backup keeper in Keltteri, which should help them out a lot on defense, but Parshikova is a fairly raw talent by comparison, if a promising one. The other two openings in the first team will also be filled by youngsters, with on-time Megabrantid youth player Otsing slotting in at left back and homegrown prospect Mullane at striker. The Evergreens are really banking on Aatu Ruoho’s return to form continuing, anointing him with the captain’s armband. His chemistry last season with Hendry down the left side was enough to help push their attack to the forefront of League 1, but superleague defenses are made of sterner stuff. Unless Mullane is some sort of unheralded wunderkind, this team is going to struggle to score. The defense should be good, but they’ll be absolutely under siege against some of the more possession dominant teams.

Notable Products: Jirar Lomidan, Selvala Tabur
Club Summary: The highest profile team in Sivolvia have only gotten bigger and better in recent years. While many neutrals may not enjoy watching their unexciting style of play, the club and its supporters don't care at all. Under Irfun Melkum, probably second only to Lopal Daror as Confederate defensive gurus go, they have developed a very specific brand of football, and stick to it. The Tigers aim to keep possession no matter what, and aggressively close down to regain the ball when they lose it. Opposing attacks are contained to the wings, while high-danger areas in the middle of the field are clogged with defenders.
Rivals: Syneca (regional, competitive), Brasta (regional), Megabrantid (competitive)
Trophy Case: Confederacy Cup (IFCF Cycle 6), Superleague (S9, S10)
League Form:
S6:  Superleague - 4th
S7: Superleague - 2nd
S8: Superleague - 3rd
S9: Superleague - 1st
S10: Superleague - 1st

This Year: Back to back champions, the second club to accomplish the feat, and beating out the first club to do so each time. Yassaca also won the Confederacy’s second Challengers Cup and are more or less on top of the world. Sure, the Confederacy Cup is still missing from their trophy case, but you have to imagine it’s only a matter of time before that’s remedied. There are a few aging players in their lineup, but not too many, and accordingly, they have the luxury of taking their time on the transfer front, having loaded up their bench in previous seasons. Two further future prospects join their stable this window, with Holmberg a speculative future starter at striker, and Nemchenkov escaping the Interblag debacle, hoping to compete for playing time with Keresh. The lone outfield change in the first team is the revelation that Vatanian is now considered to start ahead of Stern, who will likely still see a great deal of playing time coming off the bench. The bigger change comes in goal, where Ekewakan has passed on his gloves to Kartal, who was long groomed for the position, and looks ready. The Tigers show every sign of being ready for another run at the title, and in each area of the field, back line, midfield and forwards, the argument can be made that Yassaca’s are the best in the league.

Club Summary: The original Arkintoofle United fell apart during the chaos of the war. They were never a particularly good club, but had a fair amount of history. The current incarnation was refounded by a prominent group of Arkintoofle citizens, and has enjoyed some modest success. Ark U are usually fairly popular among neutrals, many of whom would like to see them supplant Olympia as the city's best team, a goal they've flirted with over the past few seasons. It remains to be seen if they can maintain that in the long term.

Coaches:
Manager: Jigar Cisneros 60 y/o
Assistants: Rim Hakouby 53 y/o, Busra Maran 48 y/o
Captain: Margath Helder
Notable Products: Valda Harkhan, Eetu Pianka
Club Summary: The largest club in Sivolvia's smallest major city, which is also the southernmost in the Confederacy, Brasta's gold and gray symbolize the sand and lava rock of the local beaches. Brasta is known primarily as a tourist destination through most of the Confederacy, but football matches are one place where the townies can go to get away from the Brantids and Algolians crowding their beaches and bars. They have a reputation for frequent drunkenness and debauched fan behavior, but it's debatable how deserved it is. Certainly there are a highly visible minority of fans who get up to stereotpical nonsense. Most of them though, boring as it may be, are pretty well behaved.

Club Summary: Canyons has a reputation as a club for hippies and hyperenvironmental nutjobs which is not entirely undeserved. It's a fashionable jersey to be seen wearing if you're a conservation-minded celebrity, but their real fanbase is smallish, vastly outnumbered by HDCFC supporters. Having neither long tradition nor great riches, Canyons have a massive inferiority complex directed at their larger rival.

Club Summary: Zarss have had a history largely of mediocrity. Their first achievement of the SCFA era was to avoid being sent down by winning the innaugural season's relegation playoff. Like most clubs in the far north of the Confederacy, they are fairly small, without the resources of the big southern teams.

Coaches:
Manager: Andas Famt (62 y/o)
Assistants: Aryel Tevesh (51 y/o), Obeka Harrion (47 y/o)
Captain: Andrejs Katona
Notable Products: Pertti Ahlqvist
Club Summary: Located in the far northeast of Megabrantis, Golgafrincham is relatively isolated. The densely forested hills and gorges of the Han Dold canyonlands to the east, the vast expanse of the Brantid plain to the south and west, and the forbidding taiga that mantles the foothills of the Northern Reach mean that there are very few places you can easily or quickly get to. Hensha, to the West on the Molvanian border, and Rudlit to the Northwest in West Flania are the only easy drives, though the winding route east to Han Dold City is beautiful. As a result, Golgafrincham has developed a distinct culture of individualism and self-sufficiency as compared to the rest of the Confederacy. Fan culture in Golgafrincham is very much concerned with food, and it is not unusual to see an entire cow or sheep being roasted on match day.

Manager: Marith Alumau (52 y/o)

Captain: Tuco Durrig
Club Summary: Hensha is a club facing something of an identity crisis. Before now, they didn't really have one. Picture the most boring, average football club in a small boring city where not much out of the ordinary ever happens. Yeah, that was Hensha. Then, out of nowhere, two seasons removed from a brief stint in the top tier, Hensha imploded, finished dead last, and went down to the third tier for a season. Heads rolled, players left, and the team clawed its way back up. Now they'll have to figure out which club they are. The complacent, empty uniforms that got relegated twice in three years, or the hard-working side that fixed it.

Assistants: Soheyla Zaglul (55 y/o), Indra Zagaruka (56 y/o)

Club Summary: Hunian are a club that have struggled to make a mark on their local Algolian football landscape. They have proven unable to compete on the same level as the Big Three (Algolia, Damogran, and Royals) and even the second level trio of Athletic, Sporting, and Emerald Coast have also left them behind. They remain a cut above the likes of Vassilian and Halfarian, but are definitely a distant seventh-best when ranking the teams in the state. At least there's plenty of excellent Hunian wine around to drown their sorrows.

Coaches:
Manager: Arastu Bolkva (54 y/o)
Assistants: Marjut Grahn (50 y/o), Hannes Ravn (51 y/o)
Captain: Dorea Bartonek
Club Summary: By far the smaller of Chalesm's two pro clubs, Revolution's founding dates to just a few years after the War. Contrary to popular myth, it was not founded by veterans of the war per se, but rather by a diverse group of urban Chalesmites and named in commemoration of the successful struggle for independence. Revolution, then, has always had a left-wing image. Antiauthoritarian and egalitarian causes garner the support of its members, and it is almost expected that the Revolution ultras will have a new chant for whichever politician has drawn their ire at each week's match.

City: Rudlit, West Flania
Stadium: Eichlen Stadium (cap. 37,500)
Nicknames: Miners, The Eleven Dwarves
Manager: Insco Desh (58 y/o)
Captain: Terentis Ebeling
Club Summary: In Rudlit, there is no white collar vs blue collar football rivalry because it is a town essentially without a white collar, nearly everyone is employed either in mining somehow, or in processing other raw materials derived from the region's abundant forests. Or at least that's how it used to be. The postmodern economy has arrived in Rudlit, meaning that the largest industries in town these days are service related, but the old divide remains. Club support in Rudlit runs in the blood. The rivaly is more friendly than contentious though, and Rudlitters will argue vehemently during the match, but then go for drinks together afterward, and they are united by their strong dislike of both Traal teams. Inter-fandom marriage would be impossible otherwise.

Coaches:
Manager: Mirko Hodulov (46 y/o)

Club Summary The regional capital of Eastern Molvania, Sasava nonetheless plays second fiddle to nearby Sjerezo in most things, including the stature of its football club. Olympia style themselves as a club with a lot of history, and to be fair they have been around for a very long time. They've hardly won a damn thing in all that time though, aside from a few East Molvanian state championships. In non-football areas, Sasava is probably best known to the rest of the Confederacy as the gateway to the Molvanian wine country.

Club Summary: Central would like to consider themselves as a part of a Sivolvian "Big-4" along with Yassaca, Syneca, and Brasta.

Notable Products: Daczibog Ketadzic
Club Summary: Sjerezo, located in the Eastern Molvanian highlands, is neither the state's third largest (4th), nor its third most important city (5th at best), but has lately become home to its third-best football team. Interblag and Lublova are far and away the best two, but Sjerezo have definitely been the best of the rest, ahead of teams from larger cities or provincial captials like Svetranj, Sasava, Bardjov and Dzrebo. They have established themselves in large part thanks to the capable leadership of Viazdek, and a knack for producing homegrown talent that is good enough to keep them competitive in League 1, but not so flashy as to draw too much attention from larger clubs.

Club Summary: Svetranj is located in the south of Molvania in the foothills of the Molvanian Alps, with United as its only major club. Their principal rivals are Traktor, in Gryrorik, just over the border with the Central province, and Sjerezo, to the north in the eastern province. Most years, Svetranj is the very definition of an average second-tier club. They've been close to promotion a few times, but never among the preseason favorites.

Club Summary: If we're charting club territory in Viltvodle, City own the urban center, appropriately enough. The club's inspiration comes from a military unit which was, by tradition, recruited from the citizens of medieval Viltvodle to guard the frontier against invasion by Jaglan. By the modern era, the Viltvodle Borderers had become a ceremonial guard unit, populated with rich scions and wealthy social climbers, and was abolished after the Imperial conquest. The club was founded a few years later, hearkening back to the original, urban working-class origins of the Borderers. Despite their roots as the "little brother" to United, they've been around long enough that they are of roughly equal stature as a club, so much so that the Viltvodle Derby, though it doesn't have the same championship implications as other Confederate rivalries, is often among the closest and most contentious matches of the year.
Trophy Case: League 1 (S4, S8)

Club Summary: Rangers have always been most concerned with beating Han Dold City, and trying to finish ahead of them. That was before Wavel AC got good though, and now it's a three way fight for supremacy. Rangers have always been a pretty decent second-tier team, but never quite seem to find their way all the way to those coveted top spots. Despite their outdoorsy emblem and name, their "Grove" of a stadium can be found right downtown on the riverfront, with carefully landscaped plantings the only nature present.

Season 11: Preseason

Postby Squornshelan Remnant States » Mon Sep 13, 2021 7:40 am

SCFA Season 11: Administrative Announcement

The reunification of Squornshelous under the Confederate government is an ongoing process, one that will doubtless take years to reach completion. Even after the political procedures have been concluded, the long and arduous task of reintegrating our economies, technologies, and cultures will remain. Sport, perhaps, is one thing which may serve to unite our currently disparate peoples. Accordingly, the SCFA has coordinated with clubs from the former Imperium to devise a system for their integration into the Confederate footballing pyramid. We have taken stringent precautions to ensure these clubs adhere to SCFA financial fair play regulations, as well as all other bylaws and requirements which Confederate clubs are subject to. Rather than simply placing certain clubs into one league or another, the SCFA has reached a decision, ratified by the 12 clubs currently invited to join, that an expanded relegation playoff system at season's end will help determine that. Instead of two auto-relegation and promotion positions in each league, there will be only one. The 14th and 15th place finishers in each higher league, together with the 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each lower league will compete in a single round-robin relegation tournament. Each quartet of teams will be joined by four new clubs, with the top four finishers in each playoff being allocated to the upper league, and the bottom four to the lower league. Accordingly, the Superleague will expand to 18 teams for Season 12. League's 1, 2, and 3 will expand to 20 teams each. In addition, a system of relgation and promotion between League 3 and the Confederacy's various regional leagues will be devised in time to be implemented for Season 12. For the coming season, the new clubs joining the relegation tournament are as follows:
FC Kakrafoon, FC Santraginus, Striterax Knights, and Vogsphere United will join the Superleague/League 1 playoff.
Football Poghrill, Gagrakacka Union, Stavromula United, and Xaxis FC will join the League 1/League 2 playoff.
AC Blerontia, FC Fallia, FC Norrvakt, and Vogsphere Confederate will join the League 1/League 2 playoff.
The two regional league teams to be promoted to League 3 will be determined by a post-season tournament among those leagues' champions.

I hope you all will join me in welcoming these new clubs to the fold, and that you are all looking forward as much as I am to this exciting new time for Confederate football.

Ailen Koirala
President
Squornshelan Confederate Football Association


International Domestic Early Rounds and Supercup

IFCF Challengers' Cup
(SRS)               Damogran FC    7–5    Betham FC                 (SYL)   3–1   4–4
(SRS) Emerald Coast 4–4 a Baraldhur AFC (TKT) 4–2 0–2

Cup Winners' Cup
(SRS)           Brantisvogan FC    7–2    Foxchester Raiders        (STB)   4–1   3–1
Emeralds, despite their dual reinforcements at fullback, are out at the first hurdle against Baraldhur, a particularly disheartening loss given they took a two-goal lead into the away leg. With Mac Cléirich patrolling out front it was the Baraldhur back line rather than their potent attack, that won the day, stifling Nazahn and Yoltz-Jonto. Damogran survived a wild second leg in Sylestone, and at certain points looked like they might have to resort to advancing on away goals. Tight second half play from the midfield, along with an impact performance off the bench by Jain got them the goals they needed to restore the 2-goal margin. For Brantisvogan, it was nearly a walkover against the Stardlaydi cup holders. Ji made his club debut with style, notching a pair in the first leg and another in the second.
IFCF Champions' League
(SRS)            Megabrantid SC    1–3    DD Porto Nowi             (ZRH)   0–2   1–1

IFCF Challengers' Cup
(SOR)           Virtus Redoccio    2–6    Damogran FC               (SRS)   2–4   0–2

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
(SRS)                  Wavel AC    3–0    Adasey FC                 (ACH)   1–0   2–0
(SRS) Sivolvia Central 4–2 Blinding Lights (CHA) 2–1 2–1
A terrible result for Megabrantid, who harbored serious ambitions this season. They looked flat and unprepared for an energetic Porto Nowi side in the first leg, and couldn't break through the Rekans' parked bus in the second. Damogran were again dominant in midfield, this time without the hear-in-mouth moments from the second leg. Wavel and Central also cruised as the first Confederate Liga B entrants to take action. Keltteri was strong in net for the Evergreens, though her back line made sure she wasn't overworked. For Central, it was Starek and Andrysiak with particularly strong showings in a pair of close contests.
IFCF Challengers' Cup
(SRS)            Megabrantid SC    3–0    Hibernus                  (OAM)   2–0   1–0
(TUR) Tropicorp FC 1–3 Jaglan Royals (SRS) 0–2 1–1
(SRS) Damogran FC 2–0 Jungle Strike FC (VIL) 1–0 1–0

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
(SRS)                  Wavel AC    2–3    Astograth University      (ASG)   1–2   1–1
(OAM) Celeritas 3–10 Olympia Arkintoofle (SRS) 1–5 2–5
(SRS) Sivolvia Central 3–5 Crisisbless United (NPH) 2–2 1–3
Strong defensive performances all around in the Challengers Cup. Damogran and Megabrantid took complete control in midfield for each of their matches. Down in the Liga B, Central and Wavel each struggled at home, leading to elimination, though in Central's case you can't really fault them, given their opponents. Olympia, on the other hand, appeared not to miss departed striker Irwinn at all, racking up five goals in each leg to emphatically send Celeritas packing.
IFCF Challengers' Cup
(SRS)             Jaglan Royals    6–2    Metropolis Alligators     (VLD)   4–1   2–1
(SRS) Damogran FC 2–4 Tihon (CMT) 1–2 1–2
(SRS) Megabrantid SC 5–0 DD Porto Nowi (ZRH) 3–0 2–0

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
(SRS)       Olympia Arkintoofle    4–3    Echegoyan FC              (ASG)   2–1   2–2
Revenge was definitely on the Firm's minds as they matched up with Porto Nowi for the second time this cycle, the Rekan champions having faltered themselves after eliminating Megabrantid from the Champions League. The result this time was clinical domination in possession over two legs, and a pair of well-earned clean sheet victories. Royals also managed to advance, putting up a superb performance in their first leg against Metropolis. Irwinn, though evidently not much missed by Olympia, had a good showing with two goals for his new club. It was the end of the road though for Damogran, who have already had to fight through three rounds just to reach this point. Having enjoyed a possession advantage against all their opponents so far, they found the tables turned against Tihon, and weren't able to muster enough chances to close their deficit.
IFCF Challengers' Cup
(SRS)             Jaglan Royals    1–4    Gunzlach                  (GRF)   1–0   0–4
(SDG) KS Tapaklaboh 3–1 Megabrantid SC (SRS) 2–0 1–1

Vilitan Cove Invitational
(SRS)                Algolia AC    3-2    Rogerton Valladar CF      (DAR)   1-2   2-0
Yassaca, of course, have their ticket to the Champions League group stage by virtue of their status as Challengers Cup holders. Unfortunately, no one else who qualified for one of the upper two IFCF competitions managed to reach a group stage themselves. Royals delivered a good victory, albeit a narrow one in the first leg, but fell completely apart in Græntfjall, with the defense picked apart by Gunzlach's attackers all game long. Megabrantid came up short in the away leg to start, and couldn't come up with a strong enough effort at home, failing to make an IFCF group stage for the second straight cycle. Their status domestically is still solid, but if they can't right the ship for next cycle, the Firm could definitely see their international reputation start to slip. Algolia also had a bad first leg but salvaged it with a strong victory in Darmen to advance to the Vilitan Cove's round of 16.
Yassaca 1–0 Brantisvogan
Not the most exciting Supercup we've ever had. Brantisvogan's youngsters may have run rampant in their Cup Winners Cup preliminary, but Yassaca's back line are made of sterner stuff. Closing down Akkaynak quickly and denying her outlets to Ji, McConnaugh, and Ditou, the Tigers kept Kartal's job simple in her first match as the club's number one keeper. Things weren't exactly pretty at the other end of the field, but in the end it didn't have to be. A mad scramble following a Rallyton corner kick ended with Coleman's smashed shot rebounding in off of Rodwell for the winner.

Bravura Harper has some stiff competition for the title of biggest impact striker signing of the season. Propelled by Kaalia Gerstlauer's energetic attacking play, Chalesm are off to their best start in years. The Blues have racked up the most goals of any Superleague team and are looking every bit the title contender their offseason moves put them in position to become. That's certainly not to say that Harper hasn't made her presence felt though. While Megabrantid's pace accruing points hasn't been quite so torrid as Chalesm's and Yassaca's, they're still very much within striking distance. Losses to both Yassaca and Chalesm will have to be avenged in the second half of the season if the Firm are going to close the gap though.
The real shock from the first ten matches here is from Sporting. The Rebels got off to a great beginning with a four match win streak that included a narrow opening upset over Algolia, and a massive 5-2 victory in the Jaglan Derby. Their performance droped off a bit after that, going winless over the next five and earning just two points. They capped off the first third of the season emphatically though, with a huge 5-1 win away to Brantisvogan. Most of the rest have sorted themselves out more or less where you’d expect. Algolia down in tenth is a bit of an eyebrow raiser, and it’s tough to pick out who they’re going to climb over to get back into the top half should Sporting’s good form continue.
Wavel and Olympia are, as predicted, in trouble down at the bottom. Traal weren’t expected to be good, but very few had them pegged as being this bad.

Taking four points against each of Shamrock and Trebuchet, Yassaca did just barely enough to escape the group stage, becoming the first Confederate team to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League. Olympia rode an improbable 7-2 victory over the holders in Hawabark to likewise advance in second place. For the youngsters it was an extremely tight group, with Wirr Tsi beating both Shamrock and Yassaca on the road, but dropping both their contests against Trebuchet, who in turn lost to Yassaca and Shamrock. There was nothing but the two goals scored by the Audioslavians in Yassaca to separate the top two, as the Tigers and Shamrock drew both of their matches, getting just enough to advance.

The big story of the first round is, of course, the hastily reconstituted Interblag team getting absolutely battered by Independent, who have for seasons been one of the worst clubs in the SCFA. Nevertheless, they took a 1-0 lead home from the first leg before pouring it on late in the second leg to the complete delight of the home crowd. They were stifled by Revolution in the second round, sure, but they’ll still be happy with their cup showing I’d wager. There were other upsets on offer though. Viltvodle City won’t be making a repeat of their improbable cup runs of seasons past, as Porters banked on a strong away victory, playing for the draw at home in the second leg. Vassilian City are now the last League 3 team left standing, fighting Hensha’s stifling defense to a standstill before breaking loose for two goals in extra time. Whether they can weather their third round matchup against Superleague opposition will be the subject of much debate in the intervening weeks.

What an incredible start to the season for Han Dold City. And I do mean incredible in a literal sense. After hitting the reset button on their midfield during the window, the Wolfpack have gone on an amazing tear out of the gate. They were a perfect 9-0-0 before falling to Miners at home in their most recent match, and scored 21 goals during that unbeaten streak. Nazarov has settled into a very natural partnership with Rick, and the Han Dold attackis only rivalled statistically by that of Canyons, who padded their stats a bit running up the score on Sasava in matchday 10. Behind those two at the top, Hensha are playing a very different style, but doing it very well. Only two seasons removed from a stint in the third tier, Alumau's Navies may have the best center back pairing in League 1 with team captain Durrig joined during the window by Interblag escapee Priam. Their leadership, combined with an all-hands-on-deck approach to team defense has resulted in a stifling performance, and nine clean sheets for Predlov in the league so far.
The midtable holds a few surprises as well, most notably major struggles early for Central and Sjerezo, who were both expected to feature in the promotion picture. Each of those clubs is going to have to go on a major hot streak over the final two thirds of the season if they're going to live up to those expectations.
