Conclusion of the 4th Professional Development League
Report by Roisig Hansa
For the fourth year in a row, Dury Juniors and Sarim Potato U23s met in the play-off finals of the competition. Finally, Sarim Potato U23s managed to beat Dury Juniors 1-0 in a close and thrilling final.
Joel Haodao scored the only goal for Sarim Potato U23s, a brilliant bicycle kick at the 80th minute. His brilliant shot sent the 42,086 crowd at the Libira National Stadium roaring, as neutral fans and fans of the Sarim Potatoes was amazed at the manner the goal was scored.
"An excellent goal," said Mr John Dahsg, the manager for the winning side. "Joel, being our season top scorer, has the ability to play for the national side, and I definitely will recommend him to play for the senior side." Mr Dahsg also praised his charges for having resilience and coming up top. "Some of the players like Joel, Dargis (Walshor) and captain Marvis (Bickerson) are playing for the third time, and this might be the last season they are playing for the junior side before they are promoted to the senior side for the next season. Being able to get this championship would definitely boost our team morale as we prepare for the next season where the best of the entire country will come together and play in a single league instead of the current play-offs format."
The outgoing head coach of the Dury Juniors, Mr Sadi That, congratulated Mr Dashg and his team for the performance, saying they were deserving winners. Mr That will be moving to take over as the manager of Dury FC, the senior side, at the end of the season to replace retiring manager Mr Nasir Byadi, who is leading the senior side at the ongoing Champions Cup. "It has been a nice ride for us," said Mr That. "With the golden generation of players moving on to the senior side, I am surprised this squad with an average age of 20.7 can make it so far and manage to retain the title of conference champions. I hope that these players would be able to gain from the experience and hopefully have a good performance next year at the reformed league system."
The head coach for the national team, Mr Adnan Suliaha, was also present. As the week was also a rest week for the ongoing Champions Cup, the manager took the time to watch the conference finals and the play-off finals between the two Champions of each conference. When asked whether any of the players are capable of making to the national team, Mr Suliaha replied, "Of course they have the ability to compete with the senior players for a spot. Whether I will pick them is a tough decision to make. With absolutely no international experience for the players, it would be difficult for me to choose a side which I think is the best, especially with the competitive nature of some of our nation's top clubs. I will probably be using the Baptism of Fire and a few friendlies to tune the side and make a decision on what team I should field for the qualifiers (of the World Cup."

Commentary by Zacxis Wekgs
It is getting crazy, isn't it?
After such an exciting finals in the PDL, we are now back to action in the final edition of the Champions Cup, where two hot favourites will hope to beat the other for the title.
While Dury FC's junior side failed to defend their title in the PDL, the senior side, who is the pundit's favourite, definitely has the ability to take the title. Ahead of their match against bottom-placed Kistina Galaxy, who just got their first point in the cup last matchday, Dury FC has always been inseparable from close competitors Fiskadaha FC, who is the bookmarkers favourite. Shockingly, both Dury FC and Fiskadaha FC have lost their matches on the same matchday. However, on this matchday, I believe Dury FC is likely to win this match, while Fiskadaha FC might slip up against Dalaris City, who drew with Dury FC on matchday 2.
On the other hand, defending champions Bikarish remain unbeaten in the league, and they might have a shot at defending their title. While they lost key players Hans Kristen (Attacking Midfielder) and Catesi Holdsom (Forward) to injury, as well as star player Goah Fiqsh (Holding Midfielder) who transferred to Fiskadaha FC at the end of last season, the team probably has enough depth to help them mount an assault on the title against two teams who have proved to slip up at the wrong times. Their opponents, Mancodas City, are no pushovers, having beaten Dury FC when they met. The match between the two sides would be something to look out for.
Having said that, the number of goals scored thus far is surprising. 5.04 Goals per match is something that has no equal in many football league worldwide, and historically, the cup has not seen such high goalscoring rate despite the attacking abilities of many of the players. The national team head coach Adnan Suliaha, who has been watching the matches, should be worried. This may signal leaky defences, which could be a stumbling block in terms of PotatoFarmers' ability to perform on the national stage.

Delay of start of Premier and Super League due to Baptism of Fire and World Cup Qualifiers
Report by Pidrags Sanchez
Mr Adnan Suliaha, the national team's head coach, confirmed that the top 2 tiers of the revamped league will have delayed starts to help the national team prepare for the competitions, after the host voting results was released yesterday.
Speaking to reporters after the Champions Cup match between Fiskadaha FC and Dalaris City, he said that he has spoken to the league officials and confirmed that they league will take a break to support the national team and their efforts to qualify for the World Cup on first try. "The clubs are also very happy with the decision. They hope that PotatoFarmers' first international games will be smooth and they fully support the decision," said Mr Suliaha to the reporters as he left the stadium after watching the match at the 7th Champions Cup. "I am also taking the opportunity to get the various players in my shortlist to come for national team training during this off season, with the exception of the players stuck with their clubs due to the Champions Cup. After this week's double header, I believe it is very likely we can get a final shortlist soon as the Champions Cup ends next week, as I have a very good idea about our outfield strikers and midfielders that I will be fielding for the Baptism of Fire."
Mr Suliaha, during the infomal interview, also gave an insight to the Federation (PFFA)'s targets for the Baptism of Fire and the World Cup Qualifiers. "I know the fans are excited about the formation of a national team and our official participation in international competition, but our lack of exposure to the international football and the number of strong teams around the multiverse means that we need to reduce our aspirations. After the Baptism of Fire, we are looking to play a few teams in friendlies to tune up our team for the World Cup Qualifiers. The problem with a competitive domestic league is that it does not necessarily mean a strong national team. If our standards are not up to par, then we need to be able to be competitive at that level to ensure that we have a strong national team. I guess the Baptism of Fire can give us that little insight into the international scene. Maybe a good run at the Baptism of Fire and even the world Cup Qualifiers would definitely change the local football scene, and that is simply what we hope to achieve on our first try."


More slip ups as an unlikely winner emerges
Report by Donnas Gyden
Code: Select all
Jottim FC 3-3 Trimidau Rukiya
Sochra Mudra 2-2 Real Didari
Fiskadaha FC 3-4 Dalaris City
Mancodas City 2-2 Bikarish
Kistina Galaxy 2-0 Dury FC

Immediately after seeing Fiskadaha FC lose in the 7-goal thriller to Dalaris City, the National Team head coach Mr Adnan Suliaha told reporters that he is having a defence headache ahead of the Baptism of Fire, which is imminent after the host voting results were released. (SEE ABOVE ARTICLE)
With the announcement of the 30-player shortlist due in two weeks, Mr Adnan Suliaha told reporters after that match that they are still finding it difficult to choose the defenders for the national call-up, with injuries to some of the star players and a poor performance from others making the decision really difficult. "As I followed the results from around the country and watched the match, I could not help but wonder if our offence is really strong or is our defense just terrible," said Mr Suliaha. His worries may be right, looking at what happened during the 7-goal thriller. In form striker Shakira Handris scored a hat-trick on the way to leading Dalaris City to the victory, but 1 of that goal was due to a mistake by the Fiskadaha FC defence. On the other end, Dalaris City's defenders also made 2 mistakes to gift the goals to Fiskadaha FC and causing the close result. The bright spot of the match was the creativity of the midfielders, with Daas Taisg of Dalaris City and Gisiik Moonar of Fiskadaha FC creating many good chances for their teams. Both are players that are widely expected to make the cut for the national team, and at their age, their performance can be considered to be exceptionally by PotatoFarmers' standards. (Tasig is 25 this year, Moonar is 23 this year.)
Kistina Galaxy produced the shock of the matchday with their 2-0 victory over Dury FC, with returning striker Bytia Hansel coming off the bench to score a brace to gift Kistina Galaxy their first win of the 7th Champions Cup, keeping them in contention for the Championship. Kistina Galaxy, affected by a long injury list, was lucky to be able to call on their top striker Hansel to get the result they wanted. "It was really tough, but Hansel was brilliant in coming of the bench to score the goals," said Kistina Galaxy head coach Thomas Cadilia. "Dury FC put up a good fight but I think they are not in their best form, which allowed our weakened squad to get a morale-boosting win."
Bikarish, on the other hand, got their 3rd consecutive draw, but suffered a big loss with their central defence partnership getting injuries that is likely to end their season with the club. Danzik Hoboson and Pasits Rikachz both suffered injuries during the match, and the club felt their loss after conceeding two late goals to end the match level with Mancodas City. "Its not good news for us, and neither is it good for the country," said head coach Taik Wondos of Bikarish. "Both of them are really good defenders, and we hope they can recover quickly in time for the Baptism of Fire."

Kistina Galaxy vs Sochra Mudra (Location: Potato Villa)
Jottim FC vs Dalaris City (Location: Roberson)
Mancodas City vs Fiskadaha FC (Location: Photato Stadium of Honas)

The matches do not look exciting at all, save for Bikarish's matches against Kistina Galaxy and Dury FC in Matchday 7 and 8 respectively.
That was my statement at the start of the Cup when I got the fixture prevew. Since then, much has changed, and this promises to be more exciting then I thought. For the teams aiming for the Cup, they are all must wins, and many of the potential winners are not in their best forms. Just look at the table. 6 matchdays gone and the table topper is Dalaris City, the Cup's dark horses, with 11 points.
I guess the decision to join the World Cup might have the effect on this edition of the Champions Cup, as players try to shine to make the national team. Or is it the fact that this would be the last Champions Cup before the revamp next season? The number of shocks we have seen in this match, with traditional powerhouses slipping on banana peels is just simply too much to bear. However, the fans are happy, especially neutral fans who watch with delight at the amazing show of quality at the cup.
Remember how I said ahead of Matchday 6 that the defence is worrying? Well, I stand corrected. Although some teams and their defence is really terriible, the influx of goals do come from the strong attacking power of the teams! Indeed, the brilliance of the strikers as we have seen in Matchday 6 leads to unexpected results.
Okay, enough with the talk, back to the matchday 7 and 8. I think the matches would be nicee to watch, but I want to put the emphasis back on Bikarish's 2 matches. Bikarish's matchday 6 match against Kistina Galaxy is an old cross-state rivalry that we have seen since league football started in PotatoFarmers. One is the club which has its roots in a strong groud-level academy, churning top players for the club and is widely considered to be the top 3 academies in PotatoFarmers (after Dury FC and Sarim Potato's academies). The other is a club who buys players from the academies and forms a club from academy rejects, grooming them into talents that we see today. Many from Bikarish have traditionally moved on to Kistina Galaxy, a club with huge financial power and some of the best training staff for senior clubs. It is then not a surprise to see the clubs being locked in a rivalry. Besides, this could not have came at better time for Kistina Galaxy, with Bikarish suffering from the loss of 2 key players and Kistina themselves finding the mojo that led them to their state championship earlier this year. Bikarish, on the other hand, are on that unbeaten streak and want to extend it on their way to defending the title, which they are defintely capable to do so. Matchday 8's match against Dury FC is also one to be excited about. A win for either clubs will see them in the drivers seat for the championship and throw the other team's aspiration into jeopardy. Need I say more? Both clubs have strong attacking players so I do expect it to be full of goals.

Classification: GD before Head-to-Head Record, before a rematch if necessary
Head-to-Head tiebreak for 5/6: Sochra Mudra FC 7-4 Mancodas City (MD5)


Dury FC missed the opportunity to go top of the table after falling to bitter rivals and defending champions Bikarish in matchday 8, while Dalaris City kept their lead at the top after a loss to Mancodas City and winning Jottim FC to put themselves in firm position to win the title.
An exciting double matchweek saw Kistina Galaxy going on a winning streak and defeating both Sochra Mudra FC and Bikarish to lift themselves into 8th place on 10 points. However, their late charge was not enough to keep them in the running for the Championship, as Dalaris City continue to lead with 14 points with one game to go.
Elsewhere, Bikarish came off their defeat to Kistina Galaxy to beat bitter rivals Dury FC 3-1, with the young central defenders Nasri Sanchez and Mokaris Nisharian (the 19 year old nephew of the President), who are stand-ins for the injured regular partnership in Bikarish, putting up an inspired performance to help Bikarish get the win.
Fiskadaha FC, a pre-tournament favourite, slipped out of contention with two poor performances, losing Sochra Mudra FC in Matchday 7 and drawing with Mancodas City in Matchday 8. They now need a miracle to win the title, beating Dury FC in the last match, ensuring that Dalaris City loses and Bikarish does not win, while overcoming their inferior goal difference (Dalaris City is at +9 while Fiskadaha is at +2)

PBC Live - MD9 of 7th PFFA Champions Cup

Postby PotatoFarmers » Fri Nov 22, 2019 6:58 am

For purposes of IC time, this happened 3 days before the release of the BoF squad, and the BoF happens 10 days after this article.


The final day of the Champions Cup
Poafmersia will complete their last Champions Cup tournament today, with the race for the Cup closely watched and many players utilising this as the last opportunity to showcase their talent to get selected for the Baptism of Fire and the World Cup Qualifiers, as the national team manager makes his final decision after choosing to skip the process of showing a preliminary 28-man squad and instead going direct to the 23-player squad for the Baptism of Fire which starts in 10 days.
The Poafmersia Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) will be doing a live commentary on this matchday, as we find out who is the final winner of the 7th Champions Cup.



Live Commentary (Earliest First)
Commentators: Jillian Kistine (JK) and Bobby Hodgan (BH)

Pre-match
JK: So it seems that Catesi Holdson is back on the bench for Bikarish, and that definitely provides some relief as the defending champions aim to keep the trophy by delivering their side of the bargain.
BH: And it actually might! Real Didari have said that they are not going to kalang kachi (Famese phrase, meaning to make it easier for the opponents to win) and instead will put up a fight as they attempt to steal 4th place and the rewards that come with it.
JK: Absolutely! Moving up the coefficient ladder is helpful for teams in their cup seeding, and that with 5th to 10th getting the same prize money, everyone wants to get top 4 for the extra cash which means a larger purse during the transfer window...
BH: Which happens to be in a mess with the league reforms because the top tier's transfer season opens tomorrow but the tier 2 and 3 teams have already started shopping. The National League 1 teams also start their first matches in 3 weeks time but Super League and Premier League will start later depending on the national team's performance in the Baptism of Fire.
JK: Speaking of which, neither Adnan Suliaha nor any members of the coaching team are present for the matches, maybe they have already confirmed their squad?
BH: Adnan previously told one of the newspapers that they have confirmed their team and some players have learnt that they are on the shortlist for the World Cup Qualifiers but will not play for the Baptism of Fire, which is interesting as we did not expect that some players will be rested for the main show.
JK: I mean, we never know what is the final team until we are told, right? I also heard that they aim to get invited for the showpiece tournament Cup of Harmony, which is an invite only tournament for non-World Cup Finals participants. Seems quite bold for them to say that as that is literally the place where the top teams who crashed out of the qualifiers go to.
BH: Adnan was the guy who said that we can use football as a way of coming back into the world picture, something which has been non-existant for almost 300 years of our history since we went into isolation. It would be a dream come true if we can participate there, or even qualify for the World Cup if it comes to that.
JK: Enough with the dream talking, lets go back to the fields where we are starting now!

3 mins
BH: GOAL!Donk Kliason showed the fans his skill with a powerful long range shot into the Fiskadaha FC goal that stung the hands of Sandi Jaliaha, the keeper! Its Dury FC 1, Fiskadaha FC 0 in the match of the day!

10 mins
JK: Oh my that was close effort from Fiskadaha, as Gisiik Moonar's effort was 3 yards short of the goal. It could have been easily an equaliser, with both teams doing well and having opportunites to score.
BH: Meanwhile, its a GOAL from Daas Tasig as he taps in the curved ball from Tyson Mahids to let Dalaris City go 1-0 up against Real Didari!

11 mins
JK: GOAL! Hanchez Ryst scored a goal to let Mancodas City go 1-0 up against Trimidau Rukiya! The corner goal was taken and after the passing around, it found Hanchez and he calmly slotted home for the goal.

12 mins
BH: So the goals start coming in as Alexri Timssa SCORED immediately after the restart to equalise for Trimidau Rukiya, bringing them level on 1 goal each.
JK: Yes you are right as Nasir Hansir netted in a GOAL to help Sochra Mudra go 1-0 up! Meanwhile Dalaris City also got another GOAL, through the efforts of Shakira, the 27-year old center forward who has been doing well throughout the tournament. It is Dalaris City 2, Real Didari 0

15 mins
JK: Still goalless between Kistina Galaxy and Jottim FC, as both teams seem to adopt a more defensive stance and seem to be firmly passing the ball around.
BH: On the other hand, Fiskadaha FC had another effort missed as Gisiik wasted his chance by hitting the post. Can Fiskadaha FC get their hand in this to thwart Dury FC's attempts to win the Cup?

16 mins
JK: GOAL! Kane McCharty, the 36 year old vetran striker, pulls it one back for Real Didari with a nice little goal scored on the rebound. Dalaris City, however, still wins 2-1.
BH: It has been a difficult season for Kane, who has not been finding his touch in front of goal. With little time left on his football career, he definitely hopes that he can help his childhood club to get one more title before hanging up his boots. Hopefully he can start by leading Real Didari to cause an upset from Dalaris City.

20 mins
BH: Who would have thought! Pete Caris SCORED an unlikely 30-meter goal to let Mancodas City regain the lead! Pete Caris definitely is a contender for a place in the national team, as he maintains his form in front of goal for team that scored the third highest number of goals so far.

22 mins
JK: GOAL!! Mokaris Nisharian, the nephew of our President, scored another goal as he headed home the corner kick. Really great performance from a guy that had little time to step up and get use to play at the senior level.
BH: Just a few months ago, he was just playing for the U23 team, but with all 6 of Bikarish's centerbacks injured, they called Mokaris up from the U23 team and he has played the past 2 games really well! He would be an excellent sucessor to the sturdy defence that Danzik and Pasitis have provided. It is Sochra Mudra FC 1, Bikarish 1!
JK: Oh wait, it is a GOAL for Alexri Timssa as he scores the equaliser for Trimidau Rukiya. It is 2 all between Mancodas City and Trimidau Rukiya!

28 mins
JK: It is Jottim who goes 1 up as Jason Yukira SCORES to let Jottim FC lead 1-0 against Kistina Galaxy. Is Kistina's winning run coming to an end?

30 mins
BH: Alexri completes her HAT-TRICK as she nets another goal to let Trimidau Rukiya take the lead against Mancodas City! Alexri showed us that he remains capable of scoring goals after scoring the third one for Trimidau Rukiya!

40 mins

Fixture Congestion in the league?
Report by Roisig Hansa
It seems that football clubs in Potafmersia might be panicking at a possible league congestion that would see them play 2 matches weekly to ease the congestion and end on time, after the Poafmersian Football Association (PFFA) announced the confirmed schedule for the league matches and the international breaks.
While the clubs would be saved by a possible lack of international club competitions for another year due to problems with the UICA and the clubs unable to agree on which club to participate in a possible replacement for the UICA's club competitions, the PFFA announced 3 friendlies between the World Cup qualifiers and the Baptism of Fire, and that would worsen the current schedule as this would mean the top tier Premier League (PL) would see a delayed start.
Nevertheless, with 10 weeks to go before the end of the year 4038, the clubs are certain that 3 PL matchdays would occur before the break again for Winter break and a possible cross-year qualifiers. "I guess the reason why we chose to join international competitions now is to raise awareness and increase the quality of our league by allowing our players to experience playing overseas," said an anonymous club official. "Unfortunately this would ruin our domestic league schedule and this would cause much headaches especially for the league schedulers."
During the international breaks, National League matches will continue, and it has been confirmed that Super League matches will also continue at a slower pace, with reschedules given to clubs who are affected by international call ups. However, the rule that national team matches cannot occur on the same day as league matches would also mean that some league matches would be played on odd days during the international seasons. The National Leagues start this weekend as per schedule, while both the Premier League and the Super League matches will start a week after the end of the Baptism of Fire campaign, which could last for another 2 weeks if the Poafmersian team make it to the finals.

Sporting Daily - International Club Competitions Changes

Postby PotatoFarmers » Mon Dec 30, 2019 7:41 pm

IFCF and FFI club competitions qualification rules confirmed
Report by Pidrags Sanchez
Fiskadaha - After a long meeting between club representatives and PFFA officials, the PFFA has officially announced the qualification procedures for the IFCF and FFI club competitions.
The IFCF, billed as a successor to the UICA, features competitions participated by football clubs from various nations around the multiverse, with qualification based on merit in the domestic league(s). On the other hand, the FFI organises 2 club competitions for clubs from nations not in the big 3 sporting regions. This allows Poafmersia to qualify for the FFI, being outside the 3 main regions. Due to the off-tempo timings of the competitions in the first season of the FFI and IFCF competitions, and the reformation of the PFFA leagues, the PFFA has decided to take this time to iron out the qualification rules based on the current number of entry slots allocated to our federation.

For the upcoming IFCF/FFI season:
IFCF Champions League (1) - Winner of Champions Cup
IFCF Challenger's Cup (3) - 2nd/3rd placed team of Champions Cup + 1st placed team of 2nd-place playoffs*
IFCF Liga B Champions Trophy (3) - All semi-finalists (except the winner) of the Premier League play-offs
IFCF Rising Stars League (1) - Winner of PFFA Developmental League
IFCF Cup Winners Cup (1) - Winner of Champions Cup

FFI Liga dos Vencedores (2) - 2nd/3rd placed team of Champions Cup
FFI Copa das Confederações (1) - 2nd placed team of 2nd-place playoffs*

*The 2nd-place playoffs refer to the unofficial, but PFFA sanctioned, off-season tournament held between the 2nd placed teams of the individual state leagues.

For all future IFCF/FFI seasons, based on the current entry limits:
IFCF Champions League (1) - Winner of PFFA Premier League
IFCF Challenger's Cup (3) - 2nd to 4th placed team of PFFA Premier League
IFCF Liga B Champions Trophy (3) - 1st to 3rd placed team of PFFA Super League
IFCF Rising Stars League (1) - Winner of PFFA Developmental League 1
IFCF Cup Winners Cup (1) - Winner of PFFA Cup

FFI Liga dos Vencedores (2) - 1st and 2nd placed team of PFFA Premier League
FFI Copa das Confederações (1) - 3rd placed team of PFFA Premier League

This means a team may play in 3 competitions in 1 season, sparking concerns of a fixture overload especially in a World Cup cycle. However, the clubs agreed that a team may choose to sacrifice their entry place for another team, therefore moving entry down the ranks. For instance, if the 2nd placed team in the Premier League wants to prioritise the Liga dos Vencedores over the Challenger's Cup, they can let the 5th placed team take their place instead. This would help clubs who want to prioritise domestic glory over international competitions.
The differences in qualification was partly due to the notion that the league would not be able to be completed in time for the IFCF/FFI season, this caused issues with regards to how the teams should enter. As some clubs complain that the Champions Cup as qualification is unfair, a compromise was reached to include some of the teams which were ranked 2nd in their states.

1st PFPA PL Preview

Postby PotatoFarmers » Sun Apr 05, 2020 10:03 pm

1st PFPA Premier League Preview
Sporting Daily Special Edition
The revamped Poafmersia Football League will begin this week, and to introduce our league to a global audience, we have decided to run a special edition to introduce the PFPA Premier League. This is the first time an organised football league is held in Poafmersia, and such a state-wide league in Poafmersia's sporting history is unheard of before this league.

About the PFPA Premier League
The PFPA Premier League is the top tier of football in the Poafmersian Football League, consisting of 20 clubs playing in a double round robin format. The bottom 2 teams will automatically be relegated, while the 16th to 18th placed team will be involved in a relegation play-off. The 16th and 17th placed teams will enter the first round, where both teams will play each other in a one-off match at a neutral ground. The winning team will stay in the Premier League, while the losing team will be playing a one-off final with the 18th placed team at a neutral ground. The losing team of the play-off finals will be relegated from the Premier League. On the other side, there would be international competitions given to the top 4 teams.
For this season, foreign players are barred from playing in the league, though they are eligible to play for the club in the PF Cup and any international competitions the club is playing in. Apart from that, Poafmersian players would be allowed, for the first time, to play for a foreign club. The ban on foreign players would be lifted by the second season, after the first season is successfully completed.

Analysis of Premier League clubs
Club Name: Bikarish
Manager: Taik Wondos, 55
Taik Wondos was a former player of Bikarish who later became their head coach. As one of the longest serving managers in the history of Poafmersian football, he was responsible for shaping some of the club's policies, such as development of defensive-minded players and the starting of a strong academy system that trains players from as young as 8. What should be more surprising would be how he focuses on attack more than defence for his team.
Home Stadium: Bikarish Stadium, Bikarish, Nitrishi-pai (cap. 48,000)
Key Players: Danzik Hoboson (CB - captain), Pasits Rikachz (CB), Danill Trasa (RM), Jackson Lydia (LM/RM)
Danzik Hoboson and Pasits Rikachz are the best centerback pairing in Poafmersia, and they form the backbone of Poafmersia's defence on the national stage. Danill Trasa is another famous national team player who showed his strength during the qualification round of the World Cup 84, which was Poafmersia's first major international competition. Jackson Lydia, on the other hand, is only 22, and he has shown some potential to become part of the next generation of national team players.
Formation(s): 4-1-2-1-2
Analysis: A strong team that narrowly missed out on winning the PFFA Champions Cup (the cup for state league winners under the previous football system) last season, they are a title contender that has immense potential of being the first Premier League winner. However, the lack of a strong striker may be a weakness in terms of getting those wins.


Club Name: Dalaris City
Manager: Mansi Kandero, 45
Mansi Kandero stunned many football analysts by leading an unfancied team to win the last PFFA Champions Cup. As a relatively young manager, he has managed to lead a group of young players to play possession based football. Leading a team with an average of 21.2 years old, he has turned a small club into giant-beaters in 2 seasons.
Home Stadium: Dalaris State Stadium, Dalaris City, Dalaris (cap. 46,500)
Key Players: Christine Faits (GK - captain), Daas Taisg (CM/AM), Gasti Hans (AM/CF)
The only national team player on their team is Daas Taisg, a player which is well known for his work attitude and ability to read the play. Shining brightly despite being 26, he is also instrumental in the team's surprise win of the PFFA Champions Cup. Christine Faits, the youngest captain in the Premier League, is barely 23, but her goalkeeping skills do match up to many of the older and experienced players. Gasti Hans is an attacking midfielder, but she has often been used as a lone false nine up front.
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1, 5-4-1
Analysis: Giant beaters Dalaris City may have made a name for themselves, but with many players lacking the experience and the stamina to play a full season, they might find themselves out of steam pretty easily. Many young players are being forced to play at such a competitive level given the lack of a Developmental League team, but this is often a risky move if players burn too brightly. As such, it is unlikely for them to be able to gain the title, though they are likely to give many teams a run for their money when they are in form.


Club Name: Didari City
Manager: Dracina Gash, 68
Home Stadium: Stadium of Legends, Didari, Forche (cap. 34,000)
Key Players: Mandy Gibson, Shirou Lindholm (both CB), Leela Duško (CF - Captain)
Formation(s): 3-4-3
Analysis: Being the little brother to the richer Real Didari, the team has always utilised homegrown talent as part of their team. However, with little financial clout, they often find their best players getting sniped away by clubs which have the cash and the salary. In such a competitive league, they are never expected to be title-chasers or party poppers. Their main aim would be to get a good mid-table position, which is very possible on a good day.


Club Name: Dury FC
Manager: Sadi That, 52
Sadi That was the former manager of Dury Juniors, which was the academy team of Dury FC, but he got promoted to become the manager of the senior team after winning the PDL title for 3 out of 4 seasons. His down-to-earth attitude allows him to connect to the players to understand them better, which is why many players like to work for him.
Home Stadium: Matty Horis Stadium, Dury, Gikash (cap. 52,000)
Key Players: Alex Hoboson (CB - Captain), Daak Kalson (RM), Donk Mason (CM)
Daak Kalson and Alex Hoboson are part of the main group of players in the national team, while Donk Mason also has caps to his name.
Formation(s): 3-5-2
Analysis: A powerhouse undergoing a period of transition, we can expect many names to show up throughout the season, but nobody knows for sure where the strength of Dury FC lies after the last season where they blew such an easy opportunity to win the PFFA Champions Cup. Young players are starting to move through the ranks, and with a (not-so) new manager, Dury FC's progress this season would be interesting to watch.


Club Name: Fiskadaha FC
Manager: David Stainton, 46
Home Stadium: (stadium name), (city), (state) (cap. ?????)
Key Players: Sandi Jaliaha (GK), Gisiik Moonar (AM/CM - captain), Goon Figsh (DM)
Sandi Jaliaha, the national team's main goalkeeper, is the person helping out Fiskadaha FC with their defence. Having good keeping skills has helped him keep out many balls, reducing the number of goals which the team leaked in. As for Gisiik Moonar, his chance creation techniques is widely recognised, and many clubs have attempted to lure him away from Fiskadaha but to no avail. On the other hand, Goon Figsh is also known to be the "carry of a weak defence", but his ability to orchestra the midfield from behind is what makes him a strong holding midfielder.
Formation(s): 4-1-2-1-2
Analysis: Some say Fiskadaha FC is undergoing another golden generation, but they have nothing much to show for it. Their poor defence has raised alarmed bells, but manager David Stainton has not acted on it. In fact, they come into this season with huge defensive worries. The only reason why their performance remains quite okay is due to their goalkeeper, Sandi Jaliaha, and their strong offence led by playmaker Gisiik Moonar, who is also the team's captain. If offence is the best form of defence, then they can be title challengers.


Club Name: Forte Agureo FC
Manager: Michael Schmidt, 60
Home Stadium: Agureo Stadium, Agureo di Campilo, Dalaris (cap. 47,000)
Key Players: Imbrahim Warwrick (CM), Yorath Zaperato (CM - captain)
Formation(s): 5-4-1
Analysis: Yorath Zaperato, at 36, is the captain relatively ageing team that is struggling to renew itself over the past few years. Even their academy team is barely surviving in the first tier of the Professional Developmental League (PDL). They are unlikely to survive in the Premier League and should be one of those teams getting relegated from a competitive league.


Club Name: Holhot United
Manager: Justin De la Cruz, 32
Justin De la Cruz is a minority in many ways. They are of a racial minority, of a very young age, and a transgender manager. Despite this season being their second year, the footballing fraternity has been surprised with their new ways of playing football. They were not given the opportunity to play football due to his health conditions, but their interest in the sport made them take up management, and they were given a spot to manage Holhot United, a club of considerable standing in a state where football is not your most common sport.
Home Stadium: Holtin Kash Stadium, Holhot, Nitrishi-pai (cap. 37,250)
Key Players: Konile Trasa (CB), Jessie Mchargarita (RM - captain), Hansel Tang (CF/LW/LM)
Konile Trasa is one of the reserve center-back in the national team set-up, but his potential is really huge, having performed at the highest level even before reaching his career peak. On the other hand, veteran Jessie Mchargarita is slowly moving away from her career peak, but remains one of the key corner stone of Holhot United.
Formation(s): 3-3-1-3; 4-2-1-3
Analysis: This is one of those mid-table teams that are slowly improving and increasing their abilities. They may not be as good as their state rivals Bikarish, but they could very well be racing for the title in a year or two after their big move in creating a combined academy with cross-town rivals Holhot City. They should be a team in the top-half, picking away points from the bigger teams, but missing the edge that gives them a shot at the title.


Club Name: Jote United
Manager: William Karlson, 59
Home Stadium: Sporting Jote Stadium, Jote, Bikasta (cap. 41,000)
Key Players: Hildur Glover (CF - captain), Olimpia Tordai (CM/DM), Giordano Knepp (CM/AM)
Formation(s): 4-4-1-1
Analysis: Despite a working academy, the academy has not been fantastic in churning out good players. Only advantage of these players is their age, as they have an average age of 25. Despite so, it is unlikely to see this team challenging for the title or the international club competitions spaces, and they would be lucky to survive the year in the Premier League. Even if they do, it is likely that they would barely make it out of the play-offs.


Club Name: Jottim FC
Manager: Jeremy Ling, 37
Jeremy Ling is the only player-coach in the Premier League, and it would likely be his last season as a player before he fully takes over as head coach. Currently, his duties is also shared with his assistant, Narcissus Lima, who is 40 and is also a former player at the club.
Home Stadium: Jottim Park, Jottim County, Bikasta (cap. 30,000)
Key Players: Silvestre Sitko (GK - captain), Bozhena Shimizu (RM), Sofía Alessi (CF/AM)
Of particular interest is Sofía Alessi, a relatively young striker who would just turned 22 late last year. She was widely seen as the replacement for Shakira Handaris, and was supposed to be the understudy alongside Joel Haodao until an injury ruled her out of the World Cup Qualifiers. Now, many people are waiting to see when she would get a national team call up, and the next World Cup Qualifiers or even the 9th IAC might be a possible guess.
Formation(s): 4-4-2
Analysis:Nothing really special about this club, as they are an ordinary mid-table club. Nothing really lacking, but nothing really stands out either as compared to other big clubs.


Club Name: Kavalti River FC
Manager: Chaz Barber, 58
Home Stadium: Riverson, Kavalti, Hitimatias (cap. 30,000)
Key Players: Yafe Lauwens (CF), Kristina Mendes (LW - captain), Melchiorre Koskinen (RM)
Formation(s): 4-3-3
Analysis: A weak club that just does not have the ability to play an offensive formation despite having the players to do so. Definitely expected to relegate to the Super League, though they might struggle quite significantly on their way down.


Club Name: Kistina Galaxy
Manager: Thomas Cadilia, 48
Home Stadium: Theatre of Light, Kistina, Ramadau Trish (cap. 59,000)
Key Players: Bytia Hisel (CF), Kaleo Morce (DM - captain), Nuha Nilsen (CB)
The richest and most defensive side in the Premier League produces the most defenders and holding midfielders, yet their only national team player is a female center forward. And it is not difficult to see why. Bytia's ability to beat the goalkeeper in a one-on-one makes her very dangerous, and her agility helps her dribble past defenders on the way to goal.
Formation(s): 5-4-1, 4-3-2-1
Analysis: Kistina Galaxy has consistently outperformed expectations, and they often go all out to purchase good players from other clubs. Yes, they have an academy that feeds them players, but their high turnover rate makes the team not as bonded. We cannot write them off another top 4 spot, but it is particularly difficult for this club given their lack of good strikers apart from Bytia Hisel (which was a surprise academy product).


Club Name: Mancodas Athletic FC
Manager: Tahmid James, 53
Home Stadium: Mancodas Complex, Mancodas, Cochas (cap. 60,000)
Key Players: Dikash Johikas (GK - captain), Iside Rosenberg (CM), Severino Franzese (RW), Ferdinand Conner (LB)
Formation(s): 4-3-3, 3-4-3
Analysis:They say Mancodas is crowded with many football players, and Mancodas Athletic FC is just one of the big 3 Mancodas clubs. Although they may be an upper mid-table club, but they could possibly challenge for the international competition spots if the race is tight.


Club Name: Mancodas City
Manager: Zahi Castillias, 55
Home Stadium: Camp of Power, Mancodas, Cochas (cap. 61,000)
Key Players: Alex Pickford (LB), Denise Pickford (RB), Ftiks Wariq (CB/DM), Pete Carisa (RW/CF - captain)
Formation(s): 4-3-3; 4-4-2
Analysis: The stronger team, with much more national team players including the Pickford sibilings, as well as Pete Carisa. Definitely a title contender and should make it into the top 4 spots.


Club Name: Offsdi Dalas
Manager: Evin Goshik, 57
Home Stadium: Offsdi Stadium, Offsdi, Piskn (cap. 55,500)
Key Players: Xochipilli Ognyanov (CF - captain), Anastasios Willoughby (AM/CM), Helge Musil (RM/DM)
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1; 4-5-1
Analysis: They are particularly lacking in defence. Unlike Fiskadaha FC, their offence is not really good, which means they may leak more than they score. May barely scrape past the relegation spots but unlikely to stay up for long.


Club Name: Rama Holma
Manager: Robert Carr, 62
Home Stadium: Dranga Karis Stadium, Gytrias, Ramadau Trish (cap. ?????)
Key Players: Leopoldo Lara (CB/DM), Ernest Roman (LB/RB/LM), Karina Mayo (RB/RM - captain)
Formation(s): 4-4-2
Analysis: This club barely made it into the Premier League during the categorisation matches last season, but they are unlikely to stay in the Premier League this season. Can't see how they can avoid the drop.


Club Name: Real Didari
Manager: Eric Day, 63
Home Stadium: Old Grashja, Didari, Forche (cap. 60,000)
Key Players: Graciia Warisian (LB - captain), Babak Grimaldi (LM), Dudley Ignácz (RB)
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1
Analysis: A relatively old club with long history, but still finding its identity. Despite having some good players like Graciia (one of the best full backs in Poafmersia), they seems to be not finding their form, changing 4 managers in 2 years. Hopefully veteran Eric Day would be able to save their campaign, just like how Eric Day famously saved Jottim FC 3 seasons ago by going on a 12-match win streak.


Club Name: Sarim Potato FC
Manager: Thomas Crawford, 50
Home Stadium: Potato Villa, Potatotown, Tikhas (cap. 56,000)
Key Players: Mancest Nilson (LB/RB), Riya Keil (CM), Yeong-Suk Becker (CF - captain)
Formation(s): 4-4-2
Analysis: Despite selling star striker Joel Haodao overseas, their squad is still bolstered by many academy recurits, including fellow batchmate Yeong-Suk Becker. Having a strong academy has helped them improve over time, and hopefully this club could get into top 10 with their young players


Club Name: Sochra Mudra FC
Manager: Ravin De Santoz, 56
Ravin De Santoz is a particularly divisive figure in the Poafmersian football scene. He is well known for his "do anything to win" tactics, including time stalling, "bus-parking" and anything. Against weaker opponents, he would not hesitate to bash out his goals, but against stronger opponents, he would definitely go on the counter-attack and defend once they are up.
Home Stadium: Red Mudra Lane, Sochra, Hitimatias (cap. 58,000)
Key Players: Timothy Gausun (RB), Nasir Hansir (RW/RM - captain)
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3
Analysis: This is one club which has raised many questions over the years. A very win-oriented mentality has gotten this club to good places over the past few years, but can they do it again this year? We can see them getting 6th to 8th place, possibly 5th, but nothing more. Though they might go all out for outgoing captain Nasir Hansir, who has hinted that he might retire at the end of this season.


Club Name: Totalaha
Manager: Douglis Nichs, 54
Home Stadium: Totalaha Stadium, Potatotown, Tikahs (cap. 49,000)
Key Players: Akpan Nass (CB - captain), Melysa Mikihailov (GK), Diya Cuocco (CF/AM)
Formation(s): 4-4-1-1
Analysis: A club that has never been particularly great, they were looking forward to buy foreign players to support them but that was not allowed. Unlike their cross-town rivals Sarim Potato FC, they do not have a strong academy to support their growth. Will see them struggling to obtain a top 15 placing and is likely to be relegated.


Club Name: Trimidau Rukiya
Manager: Chang Hanson, 44
Home Stadium: Rukiya Sports Stadium, Rukiya, Piskn (cap. 37,000)
Key Players: Emma Conner (LM/LW), Arnoldo Figueroa (CF/AM/LW), Aubrey Mayer (CF/RW/RM), Alexri Timson (LW/RW)
Formation(s): 4-3-3
Analysis: Chang Hanson's unique tactics have given this team a new path, and they have started to gain massive improvements in their defence. Though their defence is not as good as it should be, their strength likes in their front 3, as seen by how their key players are all wingers or center forwards. We are confident that they are able to gain a spot in the top half, though breaking into the top 4 might be a tall order for them.

Analysis:
Matchday 1 kicked off with a high-scoring match in Bikarish vs Trimidau Rukiya, where Bikarish lost 4-7. Alexri Timson showcased his power with 4 goals, helping Trimidau Rukiya pull off a shock win over Bikarish away. Dury FC's 4-0 thumping of Sarim Potato FC was also a wakeup call for the latter, as it marked a setback in Sarim Potato FC's rebuilding efforts.
Matchday 2 saw Bikarish and Dalaris City drawing 3-3. This early encounter was supposed to check if Dalaris City was still as good as they were last season, but the draw was not indicative as Bikarish was generally poor. Probably it was because of the last round thumping.
Matchday 4 saw Dalaris City trash Didari City 7-0, a result which was largely overshadowed by the all-red derby between Bikarish and Dury FC. After Dury FC won 4-3 away at the Bikarish Stadium, many commentators were wondering if Bikarish manager Taik Wondos should be sacked, but the fans remained patient and there was not much calls of a sack from them.
Matchday 5 was a matchday of big matches. First it was the Mancodas derby, where Mancodas City showcased their power with Pete Carisa scoring 2 and making 1 assist. Tahmid James said during his post-match conference that he needs to "reflect" on the loss, with the odds of him being sacked first growing shorter as the club only obtained 4 points from the first 5 rounds. On the other hand, Bikarish snatched a 3-1 away win at the Dreamers Park, lifting some pressure off Taik Wondos. Dalaris City got a rude awakening after a 2-3 loss to Dury FC, which was controversial after Dury FC's late stoppage time winner was determined to be marginally offside by some commentators but the referee awarded it even after consulting the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Analysis:
Matchday 8 saw a match of huge interest, with long time rivals Dury FC and Fiskadaha FC playing each other. Dury FC managed to snatch a win when Daak Kalson fired in a header from a corner in the 65th minute, and that became the winner after both defences worked extraordinarily hard. Apart from that match, most other matches were just routine wins for the title-chasing sides.

Analysis:
It is tight at the top, but with multiple surprises everywhere, talks of sacking have increased. Offsdi Dalas did way better than expected with 7 wins out of 10, slotting themselves in 3rd place, 2 behind leaders Dury FC. Fiskadaha FC had a slow start, being stuck in 8th place with 17 points, while Sarim Potato FC and Holhot United are definitely in trouble with 8 and 6 points respectively. Especially Holhot United - the number of talents in their club does not allow them to be in that position. A sack incoming? We do not know for real.

Analysis: The sack came. Not one, but 2. First it was Totalaha in Matchday 16, who parted ways with manager Douglis Nichs and got in Eadgar Cavallo. Then it was Justin De la Cruz a matchday later, who left Holhot United after complaining of the lack of "dressing room unity". They unexpectedly made Douglis Nichs their manager, a completely unexpected move considering how badly Douglis Nichs managed Totalaha. What improvements those changes could bring? We don't know, but maybe Holhot United needs a striker. However, Offsdi Dalas being at top on goal difference was a surprise to many analysts, and they wondered if another dark horse would take the title again.

Analysis: Mancodas City did not do really well, drawing at home to Jote United and then losing to Jottim FC 3-5 away. But everyone else was taking points away from each other, with Sarim Potato FC losing 2-3 at home to Dury FC, then drawing Fiskadaha FC 1-1. Dury FC meanwhile lost to Sochra Mudra FC in Matchday 21, then lost to strugglers Totalaha 4-5 away. Sochra Mudra FC found their form with another 5-4 win at home to Fiskadaha FC, but slipped with a 3-6 away loss to Forte Agureo FC in Matchday 23. While Totalaha was getting big results including their win to Dury FC and 3-3 draw away at Dreamers Park, Holhot United was doing badly. 3 loss and 3 draw in 6 matches was not good enough, with their team unable to find their scoring boots. But they asked their fans to be patient and hoped things would be better, though captain Jessie Mchargarita was saying that she might "leave" the club due to personal differences.

Analysis:
Suddenly Mancodas City came out and took over the table. Their 4-3 away win against Offsdi Dalas sent Offsdi Dalas packing, while other title contenders like Dury FC, Dalaris City, Bikarish and Fiskadaha FC were left stunned by embrassing results everywhere. And Holhot United just cannot win, drawing many matches against opponents of varying levels. Though their 3-2 away win at Dreamers Park was nice, they simply were not doing enough. Didari City was expected to struggle, and their owners and fans talked about giving the manager "enough time", so no sackings appeared. Meanwhile, Fiskadaha FC manager David Stainton announced that he would be unlikely to continue his contract after it expires at the end of the season, following luckster results both in the league and in the international competitions.

Analysis:
That was it. Mancodas City sealed the title on Matchday 35 with a 12 point lead and 3 games to go, with a 3-2 win over Dury FC sealing the title. Meanwhile, the relegation battle was a slug fest between Holhot United, Didari City and Totalaha, but by matchday 37 everyone knew Totalaha and Holhot United were down. The fallout from Holhot United's relegation is going to be huge, as many key players have said that they were leaving the club. It is interesting to look at how they fell - with 5 wins 14 draws and 18 losses, their problems was scoring goals. An attacking-minded manager is not going to help if no one was scoring the goals, as seen by only 2 people scored all but 2 of the 25 goals scored by Holhot United - captain Jessie Mchargarita, striker Hansel Tang.


Trimidau Rukiya 3–2 Kavalti River FC
Jottim FC 1–3 Kistina Galaxy
Jote United 0–1 Mancodas Athletic FC
Holhot United 0–2 Mancodas City
Forte Agureo FC 1–1 Offsdi Dalas
Fiskadaha FC 2–2 Rama Holma
Dury FC 3–1 Real Didari
Didari City 0–2 Sarim Potato FC
Dalaris City 3–3 Sochra Mudra FC
Bikarish 1–1 Totalaha


That was it. Rama Holma got that draw, and together with Kavalti River FC and Didari City failing to get a point, they escaped the relegation play-offs. Dalaris City's 3-3- draw with Sochra Mudra FC was enough to ensure that the former gets to the IFCF Challengers' League, and even possibly the FFI Taça das Confederações if FFI decides to push Bikarish into the Liga dos Vencedores.

Commentary: Bakarisha Chonta and Craza Wanderers were expected to struggle, but all of a sudden the third team that would be relegated is unclear. After 12 rounds, 8 points seperate the 9th and the 18th, making the third relegation spot open to all. The expected title contenders are Trimidau Naksa, FC United of Mancodas, and Holhot City, but FC United of Mancodas is 5 points off the pace, while Holhot City is 9 points off. Surprising sides that took early leads is Pacifica and Armed Forces FC, both sides were not expected to be in top 4 but somehow managed excellent results.

Commentary: Bakarisha Chonta is definitely relegated, having managed 4 points from 26 games. Craza Wanderers is also on the way out, being 12 points away from 17th place, the safe spot. At the top, Trimidau Naksa gained top spot, taking it in Matchday 17 on goal difference and later solidified their spot on Matchday 18 with their 2–1 win over Armed Forces FC. Since then, however, both have kept the gap at 2 points, with FC United of Mancodas and Derby United 4 and 6 behind Trimidau Naksa. Holhot City, widely expected to be a title contender at the start, has slipped to 8th place with 40 points, and is definitely out of the race. Derby United's presence in the top 4 could signal good things for the club, having been seen as a mid-table club that will be stuck in the Super League for quite some time.

Commentary: That is crazy. Craza Wanderers and Bakarisha Chonta are both relegated with miserable number of points, but the third relegated team is not going to show up until the end. 4 points separate 15th placed Paishi-jak City from 18th placed Hakartas City. In case you are thinking, goal difference before goals for before head-to-head points. Apart from that, Trimidau Naksa extended their lead at the top to 4 points ahead of the final 6 matches, and it looks like Derby United have fell out of the running for the title. Can they get third place and an entry into the IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy? It is extremely unlikely based on their current form.

Commentary:The top 3 teams are confirmed, but what is the result depends on Matchday 37's 6 pointer between Trimidau Naksa and Armed Forces FC, as well as FC United of Mancodas' match with Pacifica. The luck has drawn the 2 important matches together as the Super League title race goes down to the wire. On the other hand, Hakartas City has emerged as the side which will likely be relegated with Craza Wanderers and Bakarisha Chonta. Just look at how much goals everyone has scored. Craza Wanderers have conceded 101 goals, while FC United of Mancodas has scored 100. Then there is Armed Forces FC with their defensive wins, making only 47 goals, just slightly more than half of their points. Well. Unique in Poafmersia.

Commentary: Too little, too late. Although Armed Forces FC managed to steal a 1-0 win against Trimidau Naksa, it was not enough as their goal difference is too small as compared to Trimidau Naksa. There was no question of whether Trimidau Naksa could beat relegated Hakartas City, though Armed Forces FC should be congratulated for successfully negotiating their tricky tie away to Holhot City. Meanwhile, FC United of Mancodas ended their season in the Super League with a 3-3 thriller away to Kinabitan. Regardless, this means we would see 3 Mancodas teams in the Premier League next season.

1st Professional Development League Results

Postby PotatoFarmers » Mon Apr 06, 2020 3:54 am

The Poafmersia Professional Developmental League, also known as the PF PDL, is the competition for U19 academy teams. The competition runs separately from the actual Premier League/Super League system, meaning that teams are not tied to their senior teams' performance.
A grand total of 28 academy teams are present in the PDL, with 14 in the first tier and 14 in the second. A total of 2 teams would be relegated from the first tier (PDL1) and 2 teams promoted from the second tier (PDL2), while the champion would also qualify for the IFCF Rising Stars' Cup.
Unlike the senior league, head-to-head record (wins then goal difference) is used as a measure for tie breaking before goal difference.

Important matches highlighted in bold.

Commentary (MD1-2)
Mancodas Athletic U19s, Dury Juniors (academy team of Dury FC), Fiskadaha FC U19s, and Sarim Potato U19s, are widely seen as the 4 best academy sides, having been the top 2 of their respective conferences during the original conference-based system. Now, we see 2 key matches, with Sarim Potato U19s beating Dury Juniors again in Matchday 1, a repeat of last year's finals. Fiskadaha FC U19s recovered from their shock 1-0 loss to Mancodas City U19s with a 4-2 win against Sarim Potato U19s, ensuring a nice competitive start to the new season. Mancodas Athletic U19s first drew with Fote Agureo EDS, then lost to Jote United DT, which were 2 shock results of the matchdays.

Sochra Mudra U19 3–2 Forte Agureo EDS
Bikarish U19s 2–1 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Didari City Juniors 2–3 Dury Juniors

Commentary (MD3-4)
Mancodas Athletic U19s getting shock results! 1 point from 4 rounds should raise alarm bells, but with some players of the last season moving on to the main team, it may just simply indicate that the younger players have yet to step up to replace the older players. Commentators know the potential of the players and simply cannot understand the run of results, and wonder why Dury Juniors can cope with the changing of players and Mancodas Athletic cannot.

Commentary (MD5-8)
Sometimes you just wonder if you need a huge loss to find your form back. Mancodas Athletic U19s took a 5-0 beating by unfancied Kistina Galaxy U19s, then recovered to draw 1-1 with cross-town rivals Mancodas City U19s in Matchday 6, and defeated Sarim Potato U19s in Matchday 8! Now the table seems fascinating, with Mancodas City ahead on 18 points with just one draw and one loss (to Forte Agureo EDS). Many commentators do point out that they had an easy fixture list thus far, unlike Sarim Potato U19s, which faced all 3 of the other title contenders.

Commentary (MD9-13)
Mancodas City U19s' first key match against Sarim Potato U19s ended in a draw. Though Mancodas City dominated throughout the match, they wee unable to score goals and therefore could only settle for a draw. Then in Matchday 11, they got trashed by Bikarish U19s, a team which may not be as good as the big 4 academy teams, but still maintained some standards. This was a reality check for the team, and yet Mancodas City continued to fall to Didari City Juniors in Matchday 12. On the other hand, Mancodas Athletic U19s found back their form, beating Bikarish U19s in Matchday 10 and then Didari City Juniors 6-3 in Matchday 11, before drawing Dury Juniors in Matchday 12 and Fiskadaha FC U19s in Matchday 13. This 1 win and 2 draw result against the other members of the Big 4 certainly boosted confidence, though they still had to work hard on finishing draws as they remained in 10th out of 14th places. Meanwhile, Dury Juniors have attained a 5 point lead ahead of Sarim Potato U19s and Mancodas City U19s, and have shown their strength in producing talented academy players.

Commentary (MD14-19)
By now, it is obvious who was gaining a lead over others. Dury Juniors still could not beat Sarim Potato U19s, but they went back to their unbeaten ways and defeated Fiskadaha FC U19s and Bikarish U19s, among other teams. Sarim Potato U19s did not perform as well, making shock loss to Jote United DT and Forte Agureo EDS, both of which are just mid-table sides, while Mancodas Athletic U19s lost to sides which are ridiculously poor like Trimidau Rukiya JDS.

Commentary (MD20-21)
Jote United DT are giant killers. Now they defeated Dury Juniors to snap their unbeaten streak, gaining the edge through a late stoppage time winner in the 89th minute. But Mancodas Athletics's 4-5 loss to Sarim Potato stole the limelight, with goals going back and forth, sparking concerns about Mancodas Athletic's new bunch of academy recruits.

Commentary (Final)
In the end, Jottim Juniors went down due to a poorer head-to-head record over Sochra Mudra U19 (H2H points: Sochra Mudra U19 4, Jottim Juniors 1). The final few matchdays was nice, but Fiskadaha FC became the outright second place with a late run of wins. But kudos to Dury Juniors for regaining their top spot - they were fantastic throughout the season, though they made a few mistakes, but many of the players in the team could very well go on to play in the senior team and even the national team.

1st IFCF/FFI Season Review

Postby PotatoFarmers » Wed Apr 08, 2020 4:07 am

Summary of Poafmersia's performance
IFCF Champions' League - Dalaris City (PR1)
IFCF Challengers' Cup - Mancodas Athletic FC (PR1); Dalaris City, Bikarish, Dury FC (all PR2)
IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy - Honas FC (PR1); Donbester (PR3); FC United of Mancodas (Ro16)
IFCF Rising Stars Cup - Sarim Potatoes U23s (Combined QR)
FFI Liga dos Vencedores - Dury FC (QR); Bikarish (Champions)
FFI Copa das Confederações - Sarim Potatoes FC (QR)


The first PF Football League season coincided with the inaugural Federação de Futebol Independente (FFI) season, as well as the first reorganised international football season under the International Federation of Club Football (IFCF). Poafmersia's submissions for the first season was relatively messed up due to the nature of how previous seasons of football was organised, but with the new league and cup system in place, Poafmersia would definitely have made better improvements to the way teams qualify for the competitions on sporting merit.
As many have expected, the introduction of the IFCF and FFI events would definitely create a fixture congestion, with clubs playing up to 3 matches in a week against teams across the multiverse. Regardless, Poafmersia

(Note: all times listed are based of Poafmersian calendar of events)

IFCF Champions' League
As Poafmersia is taking part in UICA/IFCF (UICA is the former organisation in charge of the international club competition) competitions for the first time, we have a zero coefficient. As a result, Poafmersia's only entrant Dalaris City enters on the first round.
First Preliminary Round
Calk (EIL) 5-2 Dalaris City (PFA) 3-1 2-1

Poafmersia played Calk, a team from Eileanan Sgothach, another association entering the IFCF/UICA competitions for the first time. Calk won the first leg at home 3-1, before winning away 2-1 to win 5-2 overall. Playing the first leg on the Wednesday after the World Cup 84 Qualifiers' last matchday was absolutely tiring for star player Daas Taisg, the national team player who met up with the rest of Dalaris City squad in Eileanan Sgothach. He did not start the match, coming on as a substitute in the 60th minute when Dalaris City was 2-0 down. Though he netted a goal, it was unable to stop Calk from being winners 3-1. In the weekend, they did have the honour of rotating many players in their 5-2 win against Totalaha, but the squad did not have many bright individuals to create a comeback as they lost at home 2-1.

IFCF Challengers' Trophy

First Preliminary Round
Stagmouth Athletic (ULG) 1-3 Bikarish (PFA) 1-0 0-3
Western United (ZIW) 0-2 Dury FC (PFA) 0-2 0-0
Royal Puncakpura (ERM) 3-1 Mancodas Athletic FC (PFA) 2-1 1-0

As explained above, our lack of a coefficient caused us to start in the first preliminary round. Both Dury FC and Bikarish managed to get into the second preliminary round, which was a surprise for the latter. Bikarish lost the first away leg 1-0, but heavily rotated in their 4-7 loss to Trimidau Rukiya, starting only 4 of their standard starting 11, including striker Alexri Timson who scored all 4 goals. They then won 3-0 at home against Unified Legandia's Stagmouth Athletic. Dury FC got the easier draw, having got Ziwana's Western United. Western United was the only team without a coefficient to be seeded, and Dury FC won 2-0 away, and boldly played a weaken squad in the second leg after the difficult weekend fixture against Sarim Potato FC. Luckily, Dury FC survived the home match with a goalless draw, and that produced our 2 qualifying teams. Mancodas Athletic FC did not survive the first round against Eraman's Royal Puncakpura, which was experienced enough to give them a slight edge. Royal Puncakpura first won 2-1 at home, then 1-0 away.

Second Preliminary Round
Hisar FK (TMR) 8-1 Dalaris City (PFA) 3-1 5-0
Bikarish (PFA) 1-7 Tanques AOE (KOR) 1-4 0-3
Dury FC (PFA) 5-8 Real Curumba CF (HUE) 4-4 1-4

Disaster struck in the second preliminary round. Coming down from the Champions' League, Dalaris City was expected to survive but they were hammered by Timuria's Hisar FK, 3-1 in the first leg, and 5-0 in the second leg. To think that Dalaris City had no abilities was a mistake, because immediately after their trashing at home by Hisar FK, they responded with a 7-0 home victory over Didari City. As for what happened, let us just say experience counts? Meanwhile, Ko-oren's Tanques AOE flexed their abilities with a 4-1 away win, then returning home to win 3-0 against a hapless Bikarish. Dury FC was the best loser, first drawing 4-4 in a thriller against Real Curumba CF from HUElavia, then getting trashed away 1-4.

With Poafmersia's interest in both competitions over, Poafmersia obtained a meagre 0.875 coefficient score, obtaining 140th place out of 148 associations in the IFCF/UICA rankings.

For the remaining of the competitions, the clubs' performance did not contribute to the overall coefficient score, and yet Poafmersia did slightly better.

IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy
This was a competition for the top 3 best teams in the second tier of league football. Poafmersia sent the 3 strongest performers in the league placement competitions held prior to the reorganisation of the league.

First Preliminary Round
Honas FC (PFA) 1-1 (a) Grontleytown (HVY) 1-1 0-0

Havynwilde's Grontleytown came to Poafmersia strong, and they opened the scoring in the first leg. Though Honas FC later equalised, the lack of goals in the second leg meant that Honas FC would be eliminated on away goals. That surprise elimination marked the start of Honas FC's downfall, as they eventually obtained 14th place in the 1st PFFA Super League.

Second Preliminary Round
Aelton Warriors (OME) 0-1 FC United of Mancodas (PFA) 0-1 0-0

FC United of Mancodas, a strong team that was unfortunate not to make it into the Premier League, entered in the second round. A single goal in the first leg saved them against Omerica's Aelton Warriors, bringing them into the third preliminary round.

Third Preliminary Round
FC United of Mancodas (PFA) 5-4 New Dundee Star (SCT) 3-3 2-1
Donbester (PFA) 1-4 FK Sjoedrhavn (SVJ) 1-2 0-2

Savojarna's FK Sjoedrhavn easily defeated Donbester over 2 legs, first winning away 2-1 then going home to win 2-0. Donbester had been raided since the last season, with many good players moving on to Pacifica and Derby United. This was probably the reason why they weren't at their best. On the other hand, FC United of Mancodas was solid against Schottia's New Dundee Star. They were not afraid of opponents that came from a "better-ranked" league system. Veteran striker Santik Mason led his team to a 3-3 draw by scoring 2 goals and giving 1 assist. However, with a strong away goal advantage, New Dundee Star had the advantage going into the second leg. They indeed started with a goal to go 4-3 up, but Likarish Gyits and Santik Mason worked together to score 2 goals and win the tie 5-4 on aggregate.

Playoff Round
Callodown (EUR) 2-3 FC United of Mancodas (PFA) 1-2 1-1

Nothing more to say about this after the team's heroics against New Dundee Star. Prioritising the competition over their league's performance, they played Eura's Callodown with their best 11 players. Managing to win 2-1 away helped to boost confidence, as they were able to hold of Callodown at home to win 3-2 on aggregate.

Group Stage
Group H                         Pld  W  D  L  GF  GA  GD Pts     EQS    PFA    FID    LIS
1 Sweet Apple City EQS 6 4 1 1 9 8 1 13 - 2-1 1-4 2-1
2 FC United of Mancodas PFA 6 2 2 2 7 7 0 8 1-1 - 0-0 0-2
3 CSKA Filindo FID 6 2 1 3 8 6 2 7 1-2 0-1 - 1-2
4 UD Três Rios LIS 6 2 0 4 7 10 -3 6 0-1 2-4 0-2 -

FC United of Mancodas was able to make it out of the group stage with a Win-Draw-Loss ratio of 2-2-2. Clearly their away form was better, losing only to Equestria's Sweet Apple City 1-2, and winning both Filindostan's CSKA Filindo and Lisander's UD Três Rios. However, they were unable to get the necessary wins at home, and could only settle for second place.

Round of 16
FC United of Mancodas (PFA) 4-4 (a) FC Almintora (TUR) 2-3 2-1

Alas, all good runs had to end. Against Turori's FC Almintora, they were not able to win the first leg, and was unable to score more goals away at Turori to get knocked out on away goals. However, they had made a good run in the cup. Towards the end of their participation, they were looking at how to get promoted and even grab the 1st PFFA Super League title. By obtaining 3rd place in the Super League, they earned themselves a chance to come back to try to get a better run in the competition.

IFCF Rising Stars Cup
Set-Up Round (Youth Champions' Path) - Los Rios Monstas (TAE) 3-3* Sarim Potatoes U23s (PFA) 2-1, 1-2
Qualifying Round (Youth Champions' Path) - Sarim Potatoes U23s (PFA) 3-2 Eau Claire United U-19 (DAR) 1-1, 2-1
Qualifier Round - Sarim Potatoes U23s (PFA) 1-3 Brinemouth (NPH) 0-2, 1-1
*Sarim Potatoes U23s would score in extra time to win the tie.

Sarim Potatoes U23s, first time winner of the Poafmersia Professional Developmental League, entered through the Youth Champions' Path. They won their tie against Taeshan's Los Rios Monstas, and then went on to defeat Darmen's Eau Claire United U-19 in the qualifying round. In the Qualifier Round which was contested by the second place of teams in the Champions' League path group stage and the winners of the Qualifying Round in the Youth Champions' Round, Sarim Potatoes fell to Nephara's Brinemouth 1-3 on aggregate. Given our lack of knowledge about the youth teams, Sarim Potatoes' run to the Qualifier Round was seen as a reasonable run. With Dury Juniors (academy team of Dury FC) getting into the IFCF Rising Stars Cup this time round, we wait to see if they could better the result.

IFCF Cup Winners' Cup
Preliminary Round
Paladins (POP) (a) 1-1 Dalaris City (PFA) 0-0 1-1

Poafmersia was eliminated to Plane of Possibility's Paladins on away goals. A surprising elimination for Dalaris City, who was expected to peform better against a team that was totally unheard of, apart from the notoriety their nation had during the Baptism of Fire and the subsequent World Cup Qualifiers.

FFI
We have a winner! Bikarish became the inaugural winner of the FFI Liga dos Vencedores after making a good run in the competition. Bowing out early in the IFCF Challengers' Cup, Bikarish eventually only had 2 competitions to focus on, and they were able to focus on the competition after falling out of the title race.

Bikarish's road to the title
Qualifying Round - Bikarish (PFA) 5-1 Crownpower (PRQ) 2-0 3-1

Group Stage - Bikarish (PFA) 0-1 Lokomotiv Kuban (LSP)
Group Stage - Bikarish (PFA) 2-0 Avante Leipreachán (HVY)
Group Stage - Bikarish (PFA) 1-2 Zoloroni City (MRC)
Group Stage - Lokomotiv Kuban (LSP) 2-2 Bikarish (PFA)
Group Stage - Avante Leipreachán (HVY) 1-3 Bikarish (PFA)
Group Stage - Zoloroni City (MRC) 1-2 Bikarish (PFA)
*Bikarish qualifies with W-D-L of 3-1-2, GF/GA of 10/7, in 2nd place from Group B

Round of 16 - Bikarish (PFA) (p) 2-2 Syneca AC (SRS) 1-1 1-1 (5-3 pen)
Quarterfinals - Bikarish (PFA) 5-4 Mordov Rogak (LSP) 4-1 1-3
Semifinals - Ruacalu (JSC) 2-2 (p) Bikarish (PFA) 1-1 1-1 (0-1 pen)
Finals - Bikarish (PFA) (p) 1-1 Wanda Island Wanderers (AFT) (3-1 pen)


Having entered in the qualifying round due to Poafmersia's lack of history in UICA competitions, Bikarish dispatched Kwangtzu Guānnán's Crownpower with ease. A good group stage performance saw them qualify for the Round of 16, missing out on 1st place by a poorer head-to-head record. Despite having only 3 clean sheets throughout the competition, Bikarish was able to win on penalties and the "score more" attitude to win the competition. On the other hand, Dury FC also entered the competition, but was eliminated on the qualifying round on penalties against HUElavia's Olympique de Lourdes. Similarly in the FFI Copa das Confederações (now known as Taça das Confederações), Sarim Potatoes FC lost 2-3 on aggregate to Terre Septentrionale's Dynamo de Jacques-Cartier. Despite the 2 early eliminations, Bikarish's performance meant that Poafmersia was now a country that had suddenly rised to prominance, and many would expect the country to produce better performances for the next seasons.

Round 4
No new teams entered this round. Again, there would be no seeding for this round, and teams are allowed to play any other team. Home stadiums are selected at random.
The following 12 matches ended in a winner, with NL3 side Sitisa University remaining in the competition after defeating NL1 side Bishtas Jaska.

(SL) FC United of Mancodas 1–2 Fiskadaha FC (PL)
(SL) Holhot City 2–1 Honas FC (SL)
(NL2) Chanster 1–2 Totalaha (PL)

The following 4 matches ended in a draw, and had to be "replayed". Among them, Didari City failing to defeat Fatas Harmas at home was the biggest news of the round.
(PL)                    Dury FC   0–0    Mancodas City              (PL) 
(PL) Didari City 1–1 Fatas Harmas (NL2)
(SL) Bakarisha Chonta 1–1 Dalaris City (PL)
(NL1) Red Gikashiar 1–1 Cochin FC (SL)

The results of the replay was as follows:
 (PL)             Mancodas City    2–1    Dury FC                    (PL)  
(NL2) Fatas Harmas 2–1 Didari City (PL)
(PL) Dalaris City 2-0 Bakarisha Chonta (SL)
(SL) Cochin FC 3–0 Red Gikashiar (NL1)

Didari City was eliminated in a night of shocks, and Dury FC, a title favourite, was also eliminated at the hands of Mancodas City. This means Sitisa University and Fatas Harmas are the only non-professional sides left in the cup.

Round 5
No new teams entered this round. Home stadiums are selected at random.
(SL)           Paishi-jak City    1–3    Offsdi Dalas               (PL)  
(PL) Dalaris City 2-0 Holhot United (PL)
(PL) Mancodas City 2–0 Sitisa University (NL3)
(SL) Holhot City 1–0 Trimidau Rukiya (PL)
(NL2) Fatas Harmas 0–3 Totalaha (PL)
(SL) Cochin FC 4–3 Fiskadaha FC (PL)
(SL) Offsdi Galaxy 1–2 Dalaris Sports FC (SL)
(SL) Armed Forces FC 1–3 Kistina Galaxy (PL)

No big surprises this round, apart from Holhot City defeating Trimidau Rukiya and Cochin FC edging Fiskadaha FC. The elimination of both the National League sides means Super League sides are the lowest ranked sides left, with Holhot City, Cochin FC and Dalaris Sports FC being the only 3 of the last 8. The lack of replays meant that the schedule could be shifted forward to play the FA Cup Quarterfinals next weekend (from the current weekend).

Quarterfinals
No new teams entered this round. Teams are not seeded, and home stadiums are selected at random.
(PL)              Offsdi Dalas    2–1    Cochin FC                  (SL)  
(SL) Dalaris Sports FC 0–1 Totalaha (PL)
(PL) Dalaris City 3–1 Mancodas City (PL)
(SL) Holhot City 3–2 Kistina Galaxy (PL)

Holhot City defeated Kistina Galaxy to be the only Super League team in the final 4. In the biggest result of the night, Dalaris City defeated Mancodas City 3-1, while relegation-threatened Totalaha managed to stay in the cup.

Semifinals
No new teams entered this round. Teams are not seeded, and order of matches are selected at random.
(PL)                  Totalaha    2–1    Holhot City                (SL)   1–0   1–1 
(PL) Offsdi Dalas 2–5 Dalaris City (PL) 1–4 1–1

Unfortunately, Holhot City's giant killing dream got ended with Totalaha defeating Holhot City 2-1 on aggregate.

Finals
(PL)   Totalaha    1-3    Dalaris City  (PL)

Congratulations to Dalaris City for winning the title, and as a result they will be our Cup Winners' Cup representative.

Sporting Daily: PFFA releases new season preliminary schedule, promises "less" fixture congestion
Report by Genti Ytas

Fiskadaha - The Poafmersian Football Association (PFFA) today released a preliminary schedule for the new season, adjusting certain weekend matches to slot in the regional club matches, as well as providing a first ever mid-term break to cater to the Independent Associations' Cup (IAC).
In a statement, the PFFA announced that Poafmersia would begin the PF National League season barely 6 weeks after the previous season has ended, starting the league in the same week as the beginning of the World Cup 84 and Cup of Harmony 76 knockout stages. On the other hand, unlike the previous season, the PFFA Super League will begin in the same week as the PFFA Premier League, which would be 1 week after the end of the Cup of Harmony and World Cup Finals. Meanwhile, the IFCF matches would begin in the following week, starting with the IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy First Preliminary Round First Leg. The usual winter break would come in, with the National League getting a double header week after the winter break. After the first 18 matchdays, both the Premier League and the Super League would get a 6 week break, which will be the international break for the IAC. After the IAC Finals, the FA Cup would resume the following weekend with the Round 4 of fixtures.
One very important change was the removal of the replay round for the Quarter-Finals of the FA Cup, converting it to a single leg match. This would help big teams conserve their energy especially going into the later stages of the campaign. Apart from that, the FA Cup Final and Premier League final matchdays would be held after the finals of the FFI and IFCF club competitions. This arrangement was done due to the squeezed nature of the club competitions in preparation for the 72nd edition of the Baptism of Fire. The PFFA has decided to extend the end of the schedule, starting the international friendlies one week after the start the Baptism of Fire. Furthermore, Matchday 37 and 38 of the Premier League and Super League will occur on the same week, with Matchday 37 on the midweek and Matchday 38 on Saturday.

Sporting Daily: International Transfers Roundup
Report by Pidrags Sanchez
Mancodas - Another international transfer window may have come to an end, but many Poafmersian clubs still feel that they have made little international transfers.
With 7 transfers in and 4 transfers out, Poafmersia's first international transfer window was relatively quiet and unsuccessful, with many clubs unable to find correct players and unable to get established players into their stable. But Squornshelan Remnant States contributed 5 of the 7 transfers into Poafmersia, marking the largest community of international players.
From Squornshelan Remnant States (SRS)
Talaat Demirki, 26 (Defender - CB) ==> Fiskadaha FC
Zav Allaris, 20 (Midfielder - CM) ==> Mancodas Athletic FC
Jamshed Ologin, 19 (Striker - CF) ==> Mancodas City
Gulba Kulkarni, 20 (Midfielder - RM) ==> Sarim Potato FC
Orislava Pensinger, 27 (Defender - RB) ==> Fiskadaha FC
From Xanneria (XAN)
Matt Barney, 26 (Striker - CF) ==> FC United of Mancodas
From Kita-Hinode (HIN)
Mika Toyotomi-Bariain, 21 (Striker - CF/SS) ==> Sarim Potato FC

In addition, there were 4 transfers out of Poafmersia, including a loan.
Shakira Handris, 29 (Striker, CF) ==> 1830 Cathair (Audioslavia)
Hansel Tang, 27 (CF/LW/LM) ==> Advance Alara (Ko-oren)
Hollis Stephenson, 20 (Defender, CB) ==> ISC Catalan City (Xanneria)
Karina Jacobson, 18 (Midfielder, CM/DM) ==> Loan to CF Saint-Richard (Kelssek)

Shakira Handris performed quite well during his first season in Audioslavia, helping the team attain IFCF Champions' League title as well as the Super Cup. Despite not being first choice striker, his capabilities was well recognised, and he has agreed to a permanent move to gain more international experience. Hansel Tang got herself an international move to Advance Alara of Ko-oren, getting herself a second chance after a terrible season with Holhot United. The last 2 moves were young players who moved overseas in search for more international exposure and more playing time.

2nd PFPA Premier League Preview
Sporting Daily Special Edition
After a successful first season, Poafmersia will enter the second season of the football league, and with the fans and players more excited about the new season, let us take a look at the Premier League clubs.

About the PFPA Premier League
The PFPA Premier League is the top tier of football in the Poafmersian Football League, consisting of 20 clubs playing in a double round-robin format. The bottom 2 teams will automatically be relegated, while the 16th to 18th placed team will be involved in a relegation play-off. The 16th and 17th placed teams will enter the first round, where both teams will play each other in a one-off match at a neutral ground. The winning team will stay in the Premier League, while the losing team will be playing a one-off final with the 18th placed team at a neutral ground. The losing team of the play-off finals will be relegated from the Premier League. On the other side, there would be international competitions given to the top 4 teams.
The defending champion is Mancodas City. Trimidau Naksa, Armed Forces FC and FC United of Mancodas are the new teams in the league, replacing Jote United, Totalaha and Holhot United who were relegated. An important change from the previous season was that foreign players are allowed to play in the league for the first time in Poafmersian history.

Analysis of Premier League clubs
Club Name: Armed Forces FC
Manager: Heinrike Hahn, 49
Heinrike Hahn was a former semi-professional player who later volunteered to take up the role as head coach for Armed Forces FC, a club which just recently turned professional. He stunned many observers to lead his club to second place, losing out to Trimidau Naksa only by goal difference. The use of a very defensive formation, as well as young players who run after the ball, is unique in Poafmersia and has attracted the eyes of many big clubs.
Home Stadium: Warriors Stadia, Haguista, Tikahs (cap. 38,000)
Key Players: Severina Mateev (GK - captain), Lonny Brooks (DM/RB), Matthew Tibrise (LM), Stegaj Johnatson (CM/AM), Azaziah Paget (CF)
Many of these players made it into the recent pool of national team players, with Matthew Tibrise showcasing his ability to defend deep during his performance in the World Cup 84 qualifiers. Stegaj Johnatson has also been shortlisted by head coach Adnan Suliaha for a future call-up. One of the lesser-known players is Azaziah Paget, who was singled out by pundits for her powerful shots that often sting the hands of opposing keepers.
Formation(s): 3-4-1-2, 4-2-3-1
Performance in Season 1:2nd place in Super League (promoted)
Analysis:The way they came into the Premier League had stunned many neutral fans. Rather than going for huge wins, they simply go 1 up and decide to dig deep and defend. Having scored the 3rd least number of goals in the entire league, they were definitely unfancied to win the title at all. However, their methodology of "parking the bus" has got many attacking teams worried and it remains to be seen whether they are able to defend themselves against the huge strike forces owned by many teams.


Club Name: Bikarish
Manager: Taik Wondos, 56
Taik Wondos was a former player of Bikarish who later became their head coach. As one of the longest-serving managers in the history of Poafmersian football, he was responsible for shaping some of the club's policies, such as the development of defensive-minded players and the starting of a strong academy system that trains players from as young as 8. What should be more surprising would be how he focuses on attacking more than defence for his team.
Home Stadium: Bikarish Stadium, Bikarish, Nitrishi-pai (cap. 48,000)
Key Players: Danzik Hoboson (CB - captain), Pasits Rikachz (CB), Danill Trasa (RM), Jackson Lydia (LM/RM), Tilda Hristov (CF)
Danzik Hoboson and Pasits Rikachz are the best centre-back pairing in Poafmersia, and they form the backbone of Poafmersia's defence on the national stage. Danill Trasa is another famous national team player who showed his strength during the qualification round of the World Cup 84, which was Poafmersia's first major international competition. Jackson Lydia, on the other hand, is only 23, and he has shown some potential to become part of the next generation of national team players. Tilda Hristov came up from the academy team and the 19-year old has been one of the most prolific centre-forwards last season in the PDL.
Formation(s): 4-1-2-1-2
Performance in Season 1:3rd place in Premier League
Analysis:Despite presenting consistent results and achieving third last season, the team did not really strengthen themselves, choosing to keep with the majority of their team and introducing younger players into the main team. Choosing to integrate young talents into the main squad is good, but is it enough to keep their position at the top? It is difficult to tell.


Club Name: Dalaris City
Manager: Mansi Kandero, 46
Mansi Kandero stunned many football analysts by leading an unfancied team to win the last PFFA Champions Cup. As a relatively young manager, he has managed to lead a group of young players to play possession-based football. Leading a team with an average of 21.2 years old, he has turned a small club into giant-beaters in 2 seasons.
Home Stadium: Dalaris State Stadium, Dalaris City, Dalaris (cap. 46,500)
Key Players: Christine Faits (GK - captain), Daas Taisg (CM/AM), Gasti Hans (AM/CF), Aleka Dufour (CF)
The only national team player on their team is Daas Taisg, a player which is well known for his work attitude and ability to read the play. Shining brightly despite being 26, he is also instrumental in the team's surprise win of the PFFA Champions Cup. Christine Faits, the youngest captain in the Premier League, is barely 23, but her goalkeeping skills do match up to many of the older and experienced players. Gasti Hans is an attacking midfielder, but she has often been used as a lone false nine upfront, though in the last season, many new understudies have shown up.
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1, 3-4-3
Performance in Season 1:4th place in Premier League
Analysis:Having surprised others by managing to obtain 4th place last season, Dalaris City has proven that they are able to create offensive teams out of a team of young players. Looking at Armed Forces FC's performance, it seems that young players may be able to bring some sort of advantage. All of a sudden, they have found a 3-4-3 formation with many young strikers leading the line, including Keven Massey, Aleka Dufour and Makana Tuft, all of which are between 20 and 21. That has possibly emboldened the team to turn Shakira Handris' move into a permanent one, but will the young players be able to do as well? It is difficult to tell at the moment, but they are definitely rated quite highly and should be able to get another top 4.


Club Name: Didari City
Manager: Dracina Gash, 69
Home Stadium: Stadium of Legends, Didari, Forche (cap. 34,000)
Key Players: Mandy Gibson, Shirou Lindholm (both CB), Leela Duško (CF - Captain)
Formation(s): 3-4-3
Performance in Season 1:18th place in Premier League
Analysis: Being the little brother to the richer Real Didari, the team has always utilised homegrown talent as part of their team. However, with little financial clout, they often find their best players getting sniped away by clubs which have the cash and the salary. In such a competitive league, they are never expected to be title-chasers or party poppers. After their poor performance the last time out where they got 18th and had to play the relegation playoffs, they would certainly have been looking to improve their spot. It remains to be seen if their new young talents can save them.


Club Name: Dury FC
Manager: Sadi That, 53
Sadi That was the former manager of Dury Juniors, which was the academy team of Dury FC, but he got promoted to become the manager of the senior team after winning the PDL title for 3 out of 4 seasons. His down-to-earth attitude allows him to connect to the players to understand them better, which is why many players like to work for him.
Home Stadium: Matty Horis Stadium, Dury, Gikash (cap. 52,000)
Key Players: Alex Hoboson (CB - Captain), Daak Kalson (RM), Jessie Mchargarita (RM), Donk Mason (CM)
Daak Kalson and Alex Hoboson are part of the main group of players in the national team, while Donk Mason also has caps to his name. Jessie Mchargarita was the former captain of Holhot United, and her presence to the team helps to strengthen the midfield of the side.
Formation(s): 3-5-2
Performance in Season 1:2nd place in Premier League
Analysis:It seems that this team isn't undergoing that transition as we see it, but rather, they are utilising their young players in a fantastic way. Being specialists at developing midfielders, they have showcased the power of their midfield in the PDL last season, with players like Eliza Tyler and Susan Malone (both Center Midfielders) shining. As a result, Josef Gentry (RM/RB) and
Zelda McKenna (LM) was able to cope with the pace of the Premier League very well and performed up to standards when they were called upon. We also should not forget that they got hold of Jessie Mchargarita, a regular in the national team, and her presence definitely adds pressure to the regular starter Daak Kalson. Having many strong players in the side and well developed young talents who could make it into the national team in the future, we believe that Dury FC is a strong title contender.


Club Name: FC United of Mancodas
Manager: Staligrid Wonson, 51
Home Stadium: United Park, Mancodas, Cochas (cap. 61,000)
Key Players: Bastia Hansilon (RM/LM - captain), Likarish Gyits (CF/AM/CM), Han Engin (RB - Timuria), Callie Franco (DM/CB), Lily Havelka (CM), Matt Barney (CF - Xanneria)
Han Engin was a transfer from Timuria, and despite his young age, he has learnt to become a more fluid fullback who would move forward whenever there is a need to. Bastia Hansilon and Likarish Gyits are both reserves of the national team, and indeed, they have the capability to challenge some of the other national team players for a spot.
Formation(s): 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1
Performance in Season 1:3rd place in Super League (promoted)
Analysis:We have always known this club's capabilities, making a deep run in the IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy last season, and yet managing to keep pace with the title race to ensure that they get promoted into the Premier League. Indeed, they deserve to be in the Premier League, and it was a shame when they failed to make it in based on their performance in a congested Cochas league featuring 2 other strong Mancodas teams. After purchasing Han Engin from Timuria last season, and Matt Barney from Xanneria this season, the club has definitely made a huge impact in the transfer market, bolstering their team with transfers. Should be able to comfortably stay in the Premier League, and is able to push for a mid-table spot if they find their tempo. Though some are expecting a jump straight into top 4, surely one season from promotion to top 4 seems too much?


Club Name: Fiskadaha FC
Manager: David Stainton, 47
Home Stadium: Dreamers Park, Fiskadaha, Tikahs (cap. 60,000)
Key Players: Sandi Jaliaha (GK), Gisiik Moonar (AM/CM - captain), Goon Figsh (DM), Forzu-Ralox Kal (RM - Qusmo), Talaat Demirki (CB - SRS), Orislava Pensinger (RB - SRS)
Sandi Jaliaha, the national team's main goalkeeper, is the person helping out Fiskadaha FC with their defence. Having good keeping skills has helped him keep out many balls, reducing the number of goals which the team leaked in. As for Gisiik Moonar, his chance creation techniques is widely recognised, and many clubs have attempted to lure him away from Fiskadaha but to no avail. On the other hand, Goon Figsh is also known to be the "carry of a weak defence", but his ability to orchestra the midfield from behind is what makes him a strong holding midfielder. Forzu-Ralox Kal is a right midfielder from Qusmo and has performed quite well in his first season, quickly adapting to the fast-paced nature of Poafmersian football.
Formation(s): 4-1-2-1-2
Performance in Season 1:11th place in Premier League
Analysis:Their inability to convert draws to wins has certainly cost them in the last season, and they had instead chosen to bolster their defence instead of looking at their attack, importing Tallat Demirki and Orislava Pensinger from Squornshelous Remnant States. That decision to purchase defenders isn't wrong, but it seems that in an offence-oriented league, they should be looking to close out wins instead of play out to get more draws. With a tight race for the top 4 positions, we do not see them returning to the pinnacle soon, and should only be a top-half team.


Club Name: Forte Agureo FC
Manager: Michael Schmidt, 61
Home Stadium: Agureo Stadium, Agureo di Campilo, Dalaris (cap. 47,000)
Key Players: Imbrahim Warwrick (CM), Yorath Zaperato (CM - captain)
Formation(s): 5-4-1
Performance in Season 1:14th place in Premier League
Analysis:Having barely survived the previous season, the club made little signings as not many players saw faith in coming to the club. The club is currently relying on a bunch of old veterans, such as captain Yorath Zaperato, who is 37, and Imbrahim Warwrick, who is 35. Although they had young players in the PDL who shone last season, unexpectedly, the players may be too young to play for the senior side or even make a difference. Do not see the club getting another season here in the league baring a miracle survival by winning the playoffs, which is absolutely likely.


Club Name: Jottim FC
Manager: Jeremy Ling, 38 & Narcissus Lima, 41
Jeremy Ling is a former player of the club who became the co-coach together with Narcissus Lima, who is also a former player at the club. Being former players mean that they connect to the club's philosophy and are well-liked by the fans.
Home Stadium: Jottim Park, Jottim County, Bikasta (cap. 30,000)
Key Players: Silvestre Sitko (GK - captain), Bozhena Shimizu (RM), Sofía Alessi (CF/AM)
Of particular interest is Sofía Alessi, a relatively young striker who would just turn 23 late last year. She was widely seen as the replacement for Shakira Handaris and was supposed to be the understudy alongside Joel Haodao until an injury ruled her out of the World Cup Qualifiers 84. Although she did not get a call-up during the Cup of Harmony, chances are that she would make it into the list during the next World Cup Qualifiers.
Formation(s): 4-4-2
Performance in Season 1:12th place in Premier League
Analysis:Nothing really special about this club, as they are an ordinary mid-table club. Nothing really lacking, but nothing really stands out either as compared to other big clubs. Reliant on their top striker to get a performance.


Club Name: Kavalti River FC
Manager: Chaz Barber, 59
Home Stadium: Riverson, Kavalti, Hitimatias (cap. 30,000)
Key Players: Yafe Lauwens (CF), Kristina Mendes (LW - captain), Melchiorre Koskinen (RM)
Formation(s): 4-3-3
Performance in Season 1:17th place in Premier League
Analysis: A weak club that just does not have the ability to play an offensive formation despite having the players to do so. Having barely survived the last season, it is unlikely that they would survive this season, and should be a relegation candidate.


Club Name: Kistina Galaxy
Manager: Thomas Cadilia, 49
Home Stadium: Theatre of Light, Kistina, Ramadau Trish (cap. 59,000)
Key Players: Bytia Hisel (CF), Kaleo Morce (DM - captain), Nuha Nilsen (CB), Intov-Betva Uzo (RB - Qusmo), Iulianus Innocenti (CF)
The richest and most defensive side in the Premier League produces the most defenders and holding midfielders, yet their only national team player is a female center forward. And it is not difficult to see why. Bytia's ability to beat the goalkeeper in a one-on-one makes her very dangerous, and her agility helps her dribble past defenders on the way to goal.
Formation(s): 5-4-1, 4-3-2-1
Performance in Season 1:8th place in Premier League
Analysis: Kistina Galaxy has consistently outperformed expectations, and they often go all out to purchase good players from other clubs. Yes, they have an academy that feeds them players, but their high turnover rate makes the team not as bonded. It is particularly difficult for this club to get a high rank given their lack of good strikers apart from Bytia Hisel (which was a surprise academy product), but the purchase of Iuliancus Innocenti, a fringe striker from Mancodas City, may be able to turn their fortunes.


Club Name: Mancodas Athletic FC
Manager: Tahmid James, 54
Home Stadium: Mancodas Complex, Mancodas, Cochas (cap. 60,000)
Key Players: Dikash Johikas (GK - captain), Iside Rosenberg (CM), Severino Franzese (RW), Ferdinand Conner (LB), Fayza Hoedemaker (LW/LM), Zav Allaris (CM - SRS)
Formation(s): 4-3-3, 3-4-3
Performance in Season 1:10th place in Premier League
Analysis:They say Mancodas is crowded with many football players, and Mancodas Athletic FC is just one of the big 3 Mancodas clubs. Last season's tight race for the top 4 position suggests that Mancodas Athletic FC may just be slightly off the top. Save for their goalkeeper, they have a lack of national team players or players close to making it in the national team, but the coach's flexibity with tactics does help their team achieve results. Whether they would get better this season only depends on whether they can get in more goals and come back from losing positions.


Club Name: Mancodas City
Manager: Zahi Castillias, 56
Home Stadium: Camp of Power, Mancodas, Cochas (cap. 61,000)
Key Players: Alex Pickford (LB), Denise Pickford (RB), Ftiks Wariq (CB/DM), Pete Carisa (RW/CF - captain), Jamshed Ologin (CF - SRS)
Formation(s): 4-3-3; 4-4-2
Performance in Season 1:1st place in Premier League (Champions)
Analysis: The strongest Mancodas team, with much more national team players including the Pickford sibilings, as well as Pete Carisa. Winning the title last season has boosted their credentials, and they are now focused on getting in younger blood with the purchase of Jamshed Ologin, a talented young player who simply needs more time to develop. It remains to be seen whether they can defend their title with many teams chasing after them, but they surely have the capability to slug it out at the very least.


Club Name: Offsdi Dalas
Manager: Evin Goshik, 58
Home Stadium: Offsdi Stadium, Offsdi, Piskn (cap. 55,500)
Key Players: Xochipilli Ognyanov (CF - captain), Anastasios Willoughby (AM/CM), Helge Musil (RM/DM)
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1; 4-5-1
Performance in Season 1:9th place in Premier League
Analysis:Nobody thought they could survive the last season, but they defied expectations to enter the top 10! With such a successful season behind them, surely they can do even better this season? The pundits are unable to point out how they managed to get such a succesful performance, but since they did, hopefully they can repeat it this season?


Club Name: Rama Holma
Manager: Robert Carr, 63
Home Stadium: Dranga Karis Stadium, Gytrias, Ramadau Trish (cap. 26,500)
Key Players: Leopoldo Lara (CB/DM), Ernest Roman (LB/RB/LM), Karina Mayo (RB/RM - captain)
Formation(s): 4-4-2
Performance in Season 1:15th place in Premier League
Analysis:This is one relegation candidate, having obtained 15th place last season and missing the relegation play-offs simply because of a superior goal difference. Two many utility players in a club would cause the individual's abilities to be rather mixed. They simply do not belong in the league and should be releated.


Club Name: Real Didari
Manager: Eric Day, 65
Home Stadium: Old Grashja, Didari, Forche (cap. 60,000)
Key Players: Graciia Warisian (LB - captain), Babak Grimaldi (LM), Dudley Ignácz (RB)
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1
Performance in Season 1:7th place in Premier League
Analysis: A relatively old club with long history, but still finding its identity. Despite having some good players like Graciia (one of the best full backs in Poafmersia), they seems to be not finding their form, changing 4 managers in 2 years. New manager Eric Day had helped them attain 7th place last season, but with other teams around them improving with better players, they may not be as high as they were last season.


Club Name: Sarim Potato FC
Manager: Thomas Crawford, 51
Home Stadium: Potato Villa, Potatotown, Tikhas (cap. 56,000)
Key Players: Mancest Nilson (LB/RB), Riya Keil (CM), Yeong-Suk Becker (CF - captain), Mika Toyotomi-Bariain (CF, SS - Kita-Hinode), Gulba Kulkarni (RM - SRS)
Formation(s): 4-4-2
Performance in Season 1:13th place in Premier League
Analysis: Despite selling star striker Joel Haodao overseas, their squad is still bolstered by many academy recurits, including fellow batchmate Yeong-Suk Becker. Their young players were not good enough to get them into top 10, but they have looked overseas with two more young players in Mika Toyotomi-Bariain and Gulba Kulkarni. With more talents in store, and more experience playing against older and more mature players, Sarim Potato FC should be on course for a 7th to 9th place finish.


Club Name: Sochra Mudra FC
Manager: Ravin De Santoz, 57
Ravin De Santoz is a particularly divisive figure in the Poafmersian football scene. He is well known for his "do anything to win" tactics, including time stalling, "bus-parking" and anything. Against weaker opponents, he would not hesitate to bash out his goals, but against stronger opponents, he would definitely go on the counter-attack and defend once they are up.
Home Stadium: Red Mudra Lane, Sochra, Hitimatias (cap. 58,000)
Key Players: Timothy Gausun (RB), Nasir Hansir (RW/RM - captain)
Formation(s): 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3
Performance in Season 1:6th place in Premier League
Analysis: This is one club which has raised many questions over the years. A very win-oriented mentality has gotten this club places, including 6th place last season. However, the lack of draws and many losses for the team has sounded alarms. With little activity over the transfer window, surely they cannot keep their top 6 position this season.


Club Name: Trimidau Naksa
Manager: Thompson Manson, 48
Home Stadium: Naksa Stadium, Naksa, Piskn (cap. 41,000)
Key Players: Narkissos Francis (CF/LW), Hyacinthe Hunnisett (AM/RM), Thalia Abbes (LW/LM - captain), Glyndwr Towner (RB), Salomon Guillory (RM/AM)
Formation(s): 4-3-3, 4-1-2-1-2
Performance in Season 1:1st place in Super League (promoted)
Analysis:Thompson Manson stunned pundits when they unexpectedly take the title ahead of hot favourites FC United of Mancodas, and clearly the team is excellent. A mix of fresh blood and senior players alike has thrusted this team into the spotlight, with Glyndwr Towner getting praised by national team head coach Adnan Suliaha for her reading of the play. Surving the brutal Premier League would be their main concern, and we think they should be able to do so.


Club Name: Trimidau Rukiya
Manager: Chang Hanson, 45
Home Stadium: Rukiya Sports Stadium, Rukiya, Piskn (cap. 37,000)
Key Players: Emma Conner (LM/LW), Arnoldo Figueroa (CF/AM/LW), Aubrey Mayer (CF/RW/RM), Alexri Timson (LW/RW)
Formation(s): 4-3-3
Performance in Season 1:5th place in Premier League
Analysis: Chang Hanson's unique tactics have given this team a new path, and they have started to gain massive improvements in their defence. Though their defence is not as good as it should be, their strength lies in their front 3, as seen by how their key players are all wingers or center forwards. A 5th place show up last season has given this team confidence to go even further, and they would be able to get into top 6.



Top 4 Prediction:
Title - Dury FC
2nd - Mancodas City
3rd - Dalaris City
4th - Bikarish

Relegation Prediction:
Kavalti River FC, Forte Agureo FC, Rama Holma/Didari City (playoffs to decide who relegates)

The results below are presented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. The results include that from all domestic leagues/cups (except the Professional Development League), as well as the IFCF and FFI club competitions (except the Rising Stars Cup).

Week 51
This week marks the first week of the PFFA Premier League and the PFFA Super League, while the PF National League is into their 3rd matchday. As following are the results for the Premier League and the Super League:

PFFA Premier League
Forte Agureo FC 2–0 Trimidau Naksa
Sarim Potato FC 0–0 Jottim FC
Bikarish 3–5 Fiskadaha FC
Armed Forces FC 2–1 Mancodas Athletic FC
Mancodas City 0–0 Real Didari

Offsdi Dalas 0–1 Dalaris City
Trimidau Rukiya 2–0 Kavalti River FC
Rama Holma 3–3 Sochra Mudra FC
Didari City 2–1 Kistina Galaxy

A first look at the 3 promoted teams this season. Super League champions Trimidau Naksa come into the Premier League with a 2-0 loss at the Agureo Stadium, which was kind of unexpected considering Forte Agureo FC aren't supposed to be a strong club. It was probably due to the Trimidau Naksa players feeling the blues following their promotion, and suffering from stage fright. On the other hand, Armed Forces FC opened the season strongly, making a statement with a 2-1 win over Mancodas Athletic FC. Stegaj Johnatson was the architect of the win, scoring one goal in the 31st minute and making a nice through ball to help Azaziah Paget get in the second goal 9 minutes from time. Although new striker Zav Allaris was able to get one back in stoppage time, it was only a consolation and allowed Armed Forces FC to grab all 3 points. Meanwhile, FC United of Mancodas got a tricky home tie against title-contenders Dury FC, and it was Likarish Gyits who opened the scoring 3 minutes after kick off (which turned out to be the first goal in the entire league). Striker Alexis Dazin equalised for Dury FC in the 28th minute after getting a nice cross from Jessie Mchargarita, and Jessie later opened her account for the club in the 40th minute to let Dury FC lead 2-1 into the half time. However, FC United of Mancodas are no pushovers, and indeed, they firmly went on the attacking and finally got their well deserved equaliser in the 72nd minute, with captain Bastia Hansilon crossing the ball over to Likarish to equalise. Both sides continued to attack and made many brilliant shots, but could only settle for one point apiece. In the biggest match of the matchday, which was on Sunday night, Bikarish hosted Fiskadaha FC. Defensive errors by captain Danzik Hoboson and Pasits Rikachz had allowed Gisiik Moonar to take home the first hat-trick of the season, scoring 3 goals and making 1 assist for Fiskadaha FC.

Though FC United of Mancodas played heroically, they ultimately fell to Mancodas Athletic FC 2-1. Meanwhile, Fiskadaha FC proved pundits wrong by winning 1-0 at the Camp of Power, with a goal by Whitney Rios being the difference. Many had said that Fiskadaha FC made a mistake by buying defenders instead of strikers, but turns out the defence of Fiskadaha FC is getting better and they got another big win over defending champions Mancodas City.

Week 2
Football in Poafmersia entered a 2-week winter/new year break, and league football resumed this week with a double-header week for National League teams. Meanwhile in the IFCF Challengers' Cup, Daas Taisg was unable to inspire Dalaris City to stage a comeback as they were held to a 1-1 draw to bow out of the First Preliminary Round 3-5 on aggregate to Gwinevra Barbarians from Apox. Dury FC flexed their abilities with a 4-0 away trashing of Acoflosa United to qualify for the next round 7-0 on aggregate, with Donk Mason making a hat-trick of assists. Bikarish managed to hold their fort and survived a scare from Manat FK to qualify 6-4 on aggregate. In the IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy, Armed Forces FC, who enter in the second preliminary round, held Ko-oren's WSR AFC to a 0-0 draw at home, while FC United of Mancodas fell 0-2 at home to Cosumar's Revanigruud Riversharks.

Mancodas City could not recover from their winless streak, falling to Jottim FC, a mid-table club which is seen as being on a different level from the defending champions. Meanwhile, FC United of Mancodas held Fiskadaha FC to a 1-1 draw at Dreamers Park, with Han Engin being the key player that helped to nullify lots of threats from Fiskadaha FC. Suddenly teams know how to counter Fiskadaha FC, which was just to prevent them from scoring and constantly attack. That was what Matt Barney did in front together with Likarish Gyits, and Fiskadaha FC could only sit back to prevent themselves from conceding even more.

Dalaris Sports FC vs Holhot City was a match that was particularly important here in the Super League, as both sides are considered to be promotion candidates. Indeed, it was a close match with both sides taking turns to take the lead. However, it was Dalaris Sports FC who went home with all 3 points through a stoppage time winner.

Week 3
The second preliminary round of the IFCF Champions' League and Challengers' Cup came. Mancodas City, entering the Champions' League at this round, played against Hisar FK, who eliminated Dalaris City at this stage last season, albeit in the Challengers' Cup then. Having a poor record in the Premier League, they weren't particularly confident against Hisar FK, but managed to snatch a late equaliser from Jamshed Ologin to draw 2-2. Meanwhile, Bikarish played Freeport United in the Challengers' Cup, and Bikarish also had defending problems which allowed Freeport United to come back from being 0-2 down to draw 2-2, getting 2 vital away goals. In the Liga B Champions' Trophy, Cosumar's Revanigruud Riversharks was too strong for FC United of Mancodas, winning 2-0 to eliminate FC United of Mancodas.

Defending champions Mancodas City are not performing that well, with only 7 points after 5 games and is off the pace by 5 points. However, being that early in the season, surely things are going to shake up?

Season 2 Results (Part 2 - Senior Only)

Postby PotatoFarmers » Fri May 08, 2020 1:44 am

The results below are presented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. The results include that from all domestic leagues/cups (except the Professional Development League), as well as the IFCF and FFI club competitions (except the Rising Stars Cup).

Week 4
In the FFI Liga dos Vencedores (LdV), Dury FC hosted Real Curumba FC of HUElavia in the first leg of the Qualifying Round. Alex Hoboson scored a goal in the 12th minute after catching a napping defence, and Real Curumba FC equalised just 9 minutes later through a long range screamer. Midfielder Donk Mason dribble all the way from the halfway mark, past 4 opposition players, and scored in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper to let Dury FC take the lead again in the 42nd minute. In the 62nd minute, it would be Real Curumba FC who scores again, but in the 77th minute, striker Alexis Dazin got himself a goal through a nice assist from substitute Jessie Mchargarita. That turned out to be the winner as Dury FC take a slander 1-goal lead to HUElavia.

Elsewhere, Trimidau Naksa entered the IFCF Liga B Champions' Trophy (LBCT), playing in the Third Qualifying Round against AD Lisandras of Lisander, losing narrowly 0-1 at home. Armed Forces FC's trip to Taeshan ended in a disaster as they lost 1-3, though they took home a valuable away goal.

In the FA Cup, 48 teams from the 4th and 5th tier of Poafmersia's football pyramid, ie. PF National League 2 (NL2) and PF National League 3 (NL3) entered the first round. Teams from the same league were not allowed to play each other, though the home stadium was decided at random. Although it was supposed to be held on Saturday, Doria Country FC's match against Didari United was held on Thursday as they shared a stadium with Doria United, which had a home match against Homast Littia on Saturday after the PFFA agreed to not reverse either matches.

In the Premier League, a top of the table clash between Trimidau Rukiya and Fiskadaha FC in the capital city saw Trimidau Rukiya emerge victorious, ending Fiskadaha FC's unbeaten streak while cementing Trimidau Rukiya's status as the dark horse in the title race. Nobody expects Trimidau Rukiya to dominate the match against Fiskadaha FC, since after all, Fiskadaha FC is the stronger side. Chang Hanson's team tactics has showcased how Fiskadaha FC is not unstoppable, and that their attacking could be nullified when you stack the midfield. A strange 3-5-2 formation from Trimidau Rukiya did it just as well. Meanwhile, Kistina Galaxy earned 3 points in another big match of the night, against a Dury FC side rotating players with an eye on Tuesday's FFI LdV match in HUElavia. The Didari derby came to be a closer affair than expected, with Didari City only narrowly losing despite Real Didari dominating the tempo of the match throughout the game. Defending champions Mancodas City's problems continued with a lacklustre performance at the Potato Villa, and they should be lucky that Sarim Potato FC was not at their best and that Mancodas City could take home a point.

In the FFI LdV, Dury FC overcame their jitters in the weekend to defeat Real Curumba FC 2-0, progressing 5-2 on aggregate. Meanwhile in the IFCF LBCT, Poafmersia ended their interests in the competition after Trimidau Naksa lost 0-1 away at AD Lisandras of Lisander, and Armed Forces FC could not break Williams Isle's sturdy defence even in front of their home fans. It was a disappointment for all 3 representatives in the LBCT, considering how FC United of Mancodas made it all the way to the Round of 16 before being eliminated on away goals by a Turori side. However, considering their performances in the Premier League is subpar, maybe it would do them good to focus on the Premier League.

There were many big and important matches tonight, and they produced interesting results. Firstly, Armed Forces FC played Trimidau Naksa, a rematch between two promoted teams who were racing for the Super League title last season. It turned out ot be a morale booster for Trimidau Naksa after winning 1-0. Mancodas City fell 0-2 to Bikarish, a result that showed how much Mancodas City had fell over one season. Last season, Mancodas City won 2-1 at home before trashing Bikarish 3-0 away. This time round, it was nowhere close as Bikarish outplayed the defending champions from start to end. It has showed how Bikarish's younger talents are helping to shape the team, with Kato Bourke and Sanna Ignatov shining brightly. Rama Holma may have showcased their scoring abilities during their exciting 5-5 draw with Mancodas Athletic FC last week, but they were completely silent against Fiskadaha FC, who bounced back with Forzu-Ralox Kal shining brightly for the away side.

Week 6
On Tuesday, the IFCF club competitions resume, with Mancodas City heading to Hisar FK. Despite their poor performance in the Premier League, they performed strongly with Jamshed Ologin scoring 2 goals for the visitors. Having drawn 2-2 after 90 minutes, and 4-4 on aggregate, the two sides head to extra time. Unfortunately, both sides could not be separated and went to the dreaded penalties. Hisar FK scored the first goal, and Pete Carisa helped to level. They scored a second one, but Babis Holgersson failed to score, letting Hisar FK take the 2-1 lead. When Hisar FK scored their third and fourth penalty, it was Jamshed Ologin and Natalie Carlson who calmly slotted the ball in to keep up the pressure. Unforutnately, Hisar FK scored their fifth penalty to win 5-3, eliminating Mancodas City from the Champions League. Meanwhile in the Challengers' Cup, after Dury FC managed to narrowly defeat Valladares' AS Bezieres 3-2 at home, they went to Valladares to seal the game, with striker Alexis Dazin scoring a goal in the 62nd minute to send Dury FC through to the third qualifying round. At Freeport Isles, it was Freeport United who dominated, earning themselves a 2-0 win to end Bikarish's run in the Challengers Cup.

The FA Cup continues this week with the 2nd round. This time round, 24 teams from the PF National League 1 (NL1) joined the competition. Teams from the same league continue to be unable to face each other, with stadiums drawn at random.

Then there is the Cup Winners Cup. In the Preliminary Round, defending PFFA Cup champions Dalaris City play Energie Thorsborg, a team from Savojarna, and they performed excellently with a 2-0 victory at home, with Christine Faits making many fine saves for the team.

There was no match to take note on this matchday, apart from Armed Forces FC vs Mancodas City which was arguably the biggest match of the night. Having found their tempo, Mancodas City defeated a very resilliant Armed Forces FC by racing to a 3-0 lead in the first half. Although Armed Forces FC later scored two goals, a header in the 72nd minute by Alex Hoboson sealed the game in favour of Mancodas City. It was not easy; Armed Forces FC had a strong defence and there was little mistakes made. However, many nice crosses and long balls helped to settle the difference and allowed Mancodas City to regain the tempo required to keep their season alive.

Meanwhile, the IFCF continued with the third preliminary round for Dury FC and Mancodas City in the Challengers Cup. At the Matty Horis Stadium, Dury FC showcased their strength with a 2-0 win over Mliona-Lpaka from Turori, while at the Camp of Power, the fans cheered Mancodas City to a 3-2 win over Pridnestrovia's Dinamo Bender. The Cup Winner's Cup saw Dalaris City head to Savojarna, and they played out a dull goalless draw with Energie Thorsborg to seal their progression to the First Round Proper.

FC United of Mancodas played Armed Forces FC in a highly-watched match of the night. It was Matt Barney who proved to be the difference, with the striker scoring a goal and setting up another to help FC United of Mancodas win 2-0. The other key match of the matchday was Dalaris City vs Dury FC. Both teams are seen as strong title contenders, but on the domestic front, it seems that Dalaris City are doing much better than Dury FC. Both sides played out an exciting 2-2 draw, with Makana Tuft shining really brightly for Dalaris City.

Meanwhile in the Super League, Holhot United and Dalaris Sports FC played each other in a battle for promotion. With both sides being strong promotion candidates, this match was the highlight of the night and both sides played really well. Holhot United showed much depth in their reserves, which has allowed them to maintain a relatively good performance despite losing many key players following their relegation. Meanwhile, Dalaris Sports FC is a club that narrowly missed out on promotion last season, and they have bolstered their squad and improved on their mistakes.

Week 8
The second leg of the 3rd preliminary round of the Challengers' Cup saw Mancodas City defeat Dinamo Bender away 2-0, with Babis Holgersson scoring a brace to allow Mancodas City to progress 5-2 on aggregate. Meanwhile, Dury FC drew Mliona-Lpaka away 1-1, allowing Dury FC to progress 3-1 on aggregate.

Fiskadaha FC lost 3-4 to Sochra Mudra FC in a shock defeat for the home side, holding back Fiskadaha FC's hopes of winning the title. Meanwhile, in the third Mancodas derby of the season, FC United of Mancodas proved how much Mancodas City has fallen by coming back from being 3-0 down at half time to draw level 4-4. Despite racing to a 3-0 lead through goals from Pete Carisa and Babis Holgersson, Mancodas City lost Alex Pickford to a knee injury at half time and then Ftiks Wariq had to be subbed off after getting a concussion. With two main members of the opposition defence out, FC United of Mancodas suddenly found confidence. Likarish Gyits and Matt Barney both scored 2 goals each to help FC United of Mancodas overtake 4-3, before Pete Carisa scored his third of the night to end the match 4-4.

Big wins had started to come as Pacifica showcased their title credentials with 6-0 thrashing of relegation-threatened Madaris Country, while Holhot City also trashed Madaris United 6-1. Despite having 2 teams, the city of Madaris seems to have been on a decline, with both teams widely considered to be relegation candidates. Another dark horse, Derby United has also defeated Holhot United, signalling that many teams are showing the capabilities of entering the Premier League. Pacifica and Derby United have once again threatened to be the dark horses of the league. In the last season, they performed well above expectations, obtaining 4th and 5th place respectively, and were just 3 points behind FC United of Mancodas, and even ahead of Dalaris Sports FC, another team who was expected to contest the promotion spots. This time round, although both Holhot teams, Dalaris Sports FC, Offsdi Galaxy and Cochin FC was expected to be the 5 teams contesting for the top 3 spots, it seems that they are not doing as fantastic as they should. Pacifica and Derby United were only expected to be 6th and 7th respectively, yet they are giving it their all and putting in strong performances week after week. The race for promotion should be an interesting one out, and whoever has the last laugh should be glad they made it past the line.

Week 9
On to the Playoff Rounds in the IFCF Challengers' Cup. Of course, there will be the Qualifying Round after this due to the sheer number of teams entering this season, but one more round navigated brings teams closer to the Group Stage, which is worth a lot in terms of coefficients for lower-ranked associations like Poafmersia. Dury FC got to host Filindostan's Fortunas, while Mancodas City got a difficult draw in playing CA Paulinthal of Pasarga. Indeed, while Dury FC managed to settle for a 1-1 draw with Fortunas, Mancodas City was not spared and got absolutely trashed. With key defenders missing from the starting lineup, and many main players being forced to play the full 90 minutes of the Mancodas derby last weekend, they were certainly not at their best and it showed against a strong team.

Dury FC's loss to Real Didari is not surprising if you think about it, as they rotated their entire squad to rest for the trip to Filindostan. Apart from that, many of the results were uneventful in general.

Week 10
Dury FC took one step closer to the IFCF Challengers' Cup Group Stage with a 2-0 win over Fortunas. It was Mancodas City who had to leave after their 0-0 draw away to CA Paulinthal, which was a good result considering how Mancodas City can now focus on the domestic league. The newspapers, however, were screaming at the Qualifying Round draw, as CA Paulinthal was drawn against Dury FC in a cruel twist of fate. Now Dury FC does not have to try to win, they have to win to show that they are the better team.

Dalaris City continued their unbeaten streak, this time round with a convincing 1-0 victory over Fiskadaha FC. While Fiskadaha FC's early run seems to have lost traction, Dalaris City's run hasn't and their performacne seems to be getting better and better. On the other hand, Mancodas City should be kissing their title defence goodbye with a 1-3 defeat at home to Trimidau Rukiya. Their injury crisis has worsen with midfielder Natalie Carlson joining the list of 9 players injured, and that without a good enough bench to hold the fort, they seem to be unable to get hold of the form that allowed them to win the title in style last season.

Week 11
On Tuesday, the FFI kicked off the Group Stage for their competitions. In the Liga dos Vencedores (LdV), defending LdV champions Bikarish was trashed 0-4 by Reçueçn FC at home, while Mancodas City defeated The Sarian's Bondstad Treason 2-1. Dury FC played away to Abanhfleft's Fleftic Army, and lost 2-4. Among the 3 matches, it was Mancodas City who provided the unexpected win. If they can bring the form for the FFI/IFCF competitions to the domestic league, maybe they can be at the top. In the Taça das Confederações (TdC), Dalaris City hosted Unified Legandia's Royal Standard AFC, and Dalaris City replicated their excellent league form with a 1-0 win. (Originally, Royal Standard AFC was supposed to host the match, but it was agreed to reverse the fixtures as Dalaris City had to play again on Thursday.)
On Thursday, Dalaris City then played in the Cup Winners' Cup against Banija's Umbazi Metropolitan SC. The congested schedule meant that they rotated some players for the match with the focus on the TdC. Despite fielding a weakened, they played quite well against the Banijan side, holding them to a goalless draw.
The weekend saw the third round of FA Cup. There was no restrictions on the draw, with 40 teams from the Premier League and the Super League joining the 24 winners of the second round.

Every time it comes to the FA Cup, we would see ridiculous upsets, unexpected losses, and teams crashing to nothing. It always happens, and in round 3, with 32 matches and open draws, everything and anything can happen. With the semi-professional teams from the lower leagues playing professional teams from the higher teams, it is worth to look at some of the results. Firstly, we expected Madaris United and Madaris Country to be weak, being the bottom 2 clubs of the Super League at this point, but surely they can defeat non-professional clubs? The results showed otherwise. Fatas Harmas, a team currently 16th in the 24 team National League 2, trashed Madaris United 3-0, dominating play throughout the entire game. In case you were wondering, this is 40 ranks apart. On the other hand, Madaris Country narrowly lost to Dolash County FC 1-2. Although the match was much closer, the loss seems ridiculous considering that Dolash County FC is struggling in the 5th tier, and both teams are a whooping 70 ranks apart on the pyramid. Of course, Nadari was the lowest ranked team in the pyramid to qualify for the 4th round, with the amateur team defeating Sarim Doan Naksa, a professional team in the National League 1, 3-1. For your information, Nadari is the bottom team in the 5th tier, while Sarim Doan Naksa is 2nd in the 3rd tier, and they are also 70 ranks apart. Smaller upsets in the round included Kavalti Rangers' 2-0 win over Jottim FC, with both teams 30 ranks apart; and third tier Shishada United defeating Mancodas Athletic FC away 2-1, with both teams 32 ranks apart. On the issue of entire cities falling, not only did Madaris fall, even Mancodas lost all its 3 big teams in the FA Cup. Mancodas Athletic FC was shocked 2-1, while Trimidau Naksa defeated Mancodas City 3-1. Totalaha, who was relegated last season to the Super League and is doing quite well in 3rd, defeated FC United of Mancodas 2-1. Even strong Premier League teams were not spared. Dark horses Trimidau Rukiya was held to a 1-1 draw by Bakarisha Chonta, a professional side in the third tier who is 52 ranks below. Dalaris City also laboured to a 1-1 draw against Pacifica. Pacifica showed that they belong in the Premier League by performing excellently against the defending champions, with Dalaris City's goalkeeper Christine Faits making many good saves to tie the match and force the replay. It isn't good for Dalaris City. This means that they would play an eighth match in 17 days, as seen by the fixture congestion below:
Dalaris City's fixture congestion
Week 10 Sat - PL vs Fiskadaha FC (a)
Week 11 Tue - TdC vs Royal Standard AFC (h)

Week 13 Tue - TdC vs Wavel Rangers (a)
Fortunately, the PFFA was kind enough to delay the replay till Week 13 Friday, giving Dalaris City a longer travelling break to adjust between the Cup Winners Cup match and the TdC match.

Week 12
It was the second matchday of the FFI LdV/TdC. In the LdV, Bikarish lost 1-2 at home to Viserion Fire of Dragonii, while Zwangzug's Namiri Forest was defeated 0-1 by Mancodas City. Dury FC played hosts to New Lusitania's Clube da Lusitânia, drawing 1-1. In the LdV, Dalaris City managed to win Recuecn's FC Zimmerich 2-1, with fringe players like striker Aleka Dufour and midfielder Nero Wood helping to step up to the plate. Dalaris City then travel to Banija for the Cup Winner's Cup match against Umbazi Metropolitan SC. Though many first team players missed the previous match against FC Zimmerich, they came on for the match against Umbazi Metropolitan SC. It was difficult, and ultimately Dalaris City lost 1-2. However, it was a good experience for them playing against a strong club from a strong league.

Bakarisha Chonta (NL1) 0-1 Trimidau Rukiya (PL) (aet, 0-0 FT)
Sarim Potato FC (PL) 4-2 Fiskadaha FC (PL)
The Premier League and Super League took a break, with the 3rd round replays coming in. Fiskadaha FC fielded a second string side, and let Sarim Potato FC win comfortably. They probably decided that focusing on the league was more important, and they would like to get back into the top 4 positions as far as possible. Meanwhile Bakarisha Chonta was unable to stage another upset, despite forcing the match to extra time.

Week 13
The LdV and the TdC entered their third matchday of the group stage, with Dury FC making another draw, this time round against Clube da Lusitânia. Bikarish visited Havynwilde and won Baywall Athletic 3-2, while Mancodas City hosted The Quagpire's City of Light and drew 1-1. Dalaris City's visit to Squornshelan Remnant States ended in defeat for the visiting side, with Wavel Rangers winning 3-1.

Pacifica (SL) 1-0 Dalaris City (PL)
The fixture congestion got to Dalaris City. Although the defending champions tried really hard, Pacifica are the more energetic side and ran out deserving winners. This meant that the FA Cup would see a new winner.

It seems that Fiskadaha FC could not replicate their early run. Against Dury FC, they seemed to be of a different level, allowing Dury FC to dominate things at one side of the field and ran out 2-0 winners. Meanwhile, Alex Pickford's return to the first 11 ended in a huge win for Mancodas City, scoring 7 goals against a sorry Rama Holma at the Dranga Karis Stadium.

Forte Agureo FC, expected to be in the relegation battle, performed better than expected with 17 points from 13 games. It is Armed Forces FC and Trimidau Naksa that got pulled into the battle for relegation, considering that the 16th and 17th placed team do have to enter the relegation playoffs to ensure their survival in the Premier League. At the top, Dalaris City emerged from their fixture congestion stronger, and continued to remain unbeaten in the Premier League. Although they were eliminated from the FA Cup and the Cup Winners Cup, those eliminations may be helping Dalaris City's quest to regain the title again, and show that their title win 2 season ago during the Champions Cup era was no fluke. Even the race for the IFCF spots looks to be a long and crazy one. Trimidau Rukiya has taken advantage of the other teams' fixture congestion to emerge as 3rd place, 2 points off Dalaris City. They aren't a big side in Poafmersia, but they are particularly capable of achieving big results and they seems to have been the "dark horses" everyone was talking about at the start of the season. Jottim FC and Kistina Galaxy are 4th and 5th in the most surprising fashion. Sofía Alessi has been excellent for Jottim FC, scoring 10 goals and making 5 assists thus far to help Jottim FC achieve 26 points from 13 games. For a club widely seen as a mid-table club, their performance is certain unexpected. Alessi's performance has certainly invited scouts from other big clubs, and it would not be a surprise if Jottim FC receive huge offers for her during the next transfer window. Intov-Betva Uzo has been one of the key architects of Kistina Galaxy's improvements, and together with a side that averages around 25.6 years old, the fast flowing football they play has brought them up to new places and to challenge the traditional big clubs. Fiskadaha FC's early dominance has waned, and lingering in 6th place, they need to really buck up in order to get themselves back into top 4, a position which they missed out on last season and which they should be in this season.

4 points separates the top 5 teams. Many pundits had expected a close race between Offsdi Galaxy, Dalaris Sports FC, Holhot United and Holhot City, with Totalaha, Pacifica, Derby United, and Cochin FC being in the chasing pack. However, it seems that the Dalaris Sports FC and Holhot City are underperforming for the second straight season, while Totalaha, Pacifica and Cochin FC has came into the mix. Pacifica's 9-4-0 record is excellent after 13 matches, and Holhot United showed that their relegation last season was a fluke after all. Everything signals an interesting season in the Super League, and the race to the finish should be a close one.

6th PF PDL season preview

Postby PotatoFarmers » Mon May 11, 2020 9:55 pm

6th Poafmersia Professional Developmental League Preview
Sporting Daily Special Edition
The Poafmersia Professional Developmental League, also known as the PF PDL for short, is a competition for Under-19 academy teams. Being independent from the Poafmersian Football League system means that the fate of the academy clubs is not tied to their senior clubs. A grand total of 28 teams are present in the PDL, with 14 teams in the first tier, the PDL1, and another 14 teams in the second tier, the PDL2. What is unique about the PDL is that head-to-head record (wins, followed by Goal Difference) is used as a measure for tie-breaking before goal difference, encouraging teams to pursuing wins against stronger clubs instead of ramping up on teams against weaker teams. The PDL also acts as a qualifier for IFCF football, with the champion of PDL1 qualifying for the IFCF Rising Stars Cup.

Historical Champions
For the first 4 season, the league was Under-23, and utilising a conference play-off system. Teams from their respective conferences play each other home and away in a league format, with the top 4 teams playing in their conference play-offs to determine the conference winners. The conference winners then play each other to determine the overall champion.

Season 2Dury JuniorsSarim Potato U23sDury Juniors
Season 3Dury JuniorsSarim Potato U23sDury Juniors
Season 4Dury JuniorsSarim Potato U23sSarim Potato U23s

From the 5th season (last season), the format switched to a promotion/relegation system. This is after another 4 teams, namely, Holhot Academy (combined academy team of Holhot United and Holhot City), Donbester U19s, Kavalti River FC U19, and Trimidau Naksa U19s joined the league, expanding it to 28 teams. From the 7th season (next season), we would have 2 new teams, FC United of Mancodas PDT, and Dalaris City EDS, joining the league, so both leagues would be uneven with PDL2 having 16 teams while PDL1 continues to have 14 teams.

Season 5Dury JuniorsTotalaha U19s


With an increased interest in the youth football, the Sporting Daily has decided to release a special edition, with an analysis of the 14 teams in the top tier, featuring their top players, and our predictions for the title.

Club name: Bikarish U19s
Head Coach: Sigivald Herbert, 37
Home Stadium: Academy of Bikarish
Players to Watch: Quintin Gross (Captain - LM/LB), Tilda Hristov (CF), Morris Marsden (CB)
Formation: 4-4-2
Analysis: Over the years, Bikarish's academy has developed one or two top class players, such as U21 national team player Quintin Gross, who will be captain for his second and last season this year, and Tilda Hristov, another talented striker who missed the Sporting World Cup due to injury. Unfortunately, the average player in the club is just the average player in the league, which is why they are unlikely to break into the top 3. One player to watch would be Morris Marsden, a 17-year old centre back who has been developing quite well, especially at tackling aerial balls.
Prediction: 7th

Club name: Didari City Juniors
Head Coach: Adrianne Colton, 61
Home Stadium: South Didari Park
Players to Watch: Wayne Simpson (Captain - RB), Teija Simon (CM), Mauricette Mondy (CF)
Formation: 4-4-2
Analysis: Didari City may not be doing well, but their academy is doing just okay, sneaking into 3rd place last season on head-to-head ahead of Sarim Potato U19s. The main architect should be Mauricette Mondy, a striker who has found the net a whopping 24 times last season. Scoring 24 goals from 26 games translates to almost a goal a match, and in many top leagues, this would be a statistic belonging to a top class player. Her ability to score from impossible positions, with a very accurate aim, has made many clubs look at her. Many bigger clubs like Dury FC, Fiskadaha FC, and Mancodas City have wanted to sign her, but she has refused to move away from her hometown club. On the other hand, despite an injury-hit season, captain Wayne Simpson has also shone brightly, putting in performances that reminds people of Denise Pickford (the national team right back). Hopefully, he could put in a better performance this year and allow this team to be better this season.
Prediction: 5th

Club name: Dury Juniors
Head Coach: Ninad Samara, 48
Home Stadium: Olympiaksh
Players to Watch: Eliza Tyler (Captain - CM), Angel Ingram (CB/DM), Olen Vargas (RW), Janelle Frederick (LW)
Formation: 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1
Analysis: After the last batch of players, such as Josef Gentry, Alex Hoboson, and Zelda McKenna graduated from the academy team, nobody thought Dury FC would present another crop of young talents. Everyone was wrong, and another crop has shown up to take over. Captain Eliza Tyler was prolific last season, making 32 assists last season, including 3 hat-trick of assists. However, her performance was overshadowed by that season's league top scorer and team captain, Susan Malone, who turned 20 and got promoted to the senior team. Now that Eliza has become the new captain (well deserving she is), and that we have seen the performance of wingers Olen Vargas and Janelle Frederick, we don't see how the Dury juggernaut is unstoppable. If only Dury FC utilises their youth advantage and sustain themselves at the pinnacle in the senior division for many seasons to come.
Prediction: 1st

Club name: Fiskadaha FC U19s
Head Coach: Katleho Ratti, 50
Home Stadium: East Fiskadaha Park
Players to Watch: Lucia Stuart (Captain - RM/LM), Antonia Charles (CM), Ariel Bruce (CF/LW)
Formation: 4-3-3, 4-4-2
Analysis: Despite being Eastern Conference champions for 4 years, they have only won the overall title once. Last season, they were 2nd, falling behind the unstoppable Dury FC. But don't overlook this team. There is Lucia Stuart, team captain, who is good at ball control at the edge of the field and makes good long passes, as well as Ariel Bruce, a left-footed player who is famous for his tricks with the ball. Antonia Charles was a bench-warmer last season, but with the senior players in the middle of the park gone, he has came out to be a hotly watched player, and his cameos last season has showed how much talent he could possibly have in becoming the team's playmaker. It is a mistake to say that they cannot take the title, but with Dury Juniors having another field day, they might just fall short again.
Prediction: 2nd

Club name: Forte Agureo EDS
Head Coach: Glenn Janvier, 52
Home Stadium: Fortesimo
Players to Watch: Deidre Osborne (Captain - CB), Aoife Abdulrashid (Captain - CB)
Formation: 3-4-1-2, 5-4-1, 4-3-2-1
Analysis: The senior team is on the weak side in the Premier League, and so is this team. But the main problem lies in their lack of good players up front, forcing them to choose defensive formations, and therefore, score less. Deidre Osborne, a U21 national team player, would be the captain, and we shall see if defence is the best form of attack.
Prediction: 8th

Club name: Honas FC U19s
Head Coach: Joakim Martinelli, 53
Home Stadium: Honas Field
Players to Watch: Phanuhel Muraro (Captain - DM/CM/CB), Hildegard Deniaud (CF)
Formation: 4-2-3-1
Analysis: Promoted last season as PDL2 runners-up, but it seems that they would struggle in a competitive PDL1. The players that brought them to the top tier has graduated, and the most senior player in the team would be Phanuhel Muraro, a defensive midfielder who can also play in the center-back position. Chances are that they might be in the relegation battle, but we do not see them going down just yet.
Prediction: 12th

Club name: Jote United DT
Head Coach: Tony Henry, 62
Home Stadium: Elizabeth Park
Players to Watch: Njoror Beck (LB), Nisha Macy (Captain - CB), Appius Brooks (CF)
Formation: 4-4-2
Analysis: Historically, Jote United has produced quite a number of players who have went on to bigger clubs, such as Shakira Handris and Wilford Lang of Dalaris City, and Likarish Gyits of FC United of Mancodas. However, in recent years, there aren't many prominent players, with the key players in this club a bunch of defenders. As a result? They can get enough points to maintain a mid-table position. Should be a comfortable 9th place for them.
Prediction: 9th

Club name: Kistina Galaxy U19s
Head Coach: Marcos Koizumi, 43
Home Stadium: Shrewbury Park
Players to Watch: Andreja Pettersen (Captain - CF/LW), Shirou Amatore (GK), Yorah Botha (RM)
Formation: 4-4-2, 4-3-3
Analysis: A lack of experience was what costed the team last season, as their older players aren't even of the first division standards. Captain Andreja Pettersen is definitely the youngest captain in the league at 17 years old, and having shone brightly for the team by saving many matches, that captaincy is surely well deserved. Apart from her, goalkeeper Shirou Amatore should be the player to watch, with her large physique at 1.87m making her stand out among the goalkeepers in the league. Regardless, we don't see this team getting a high rank.
Prediction: 11th

Club name: Mancodas Athletic U19s
Head Coach: Janna Freuden, 55
Home Stadium: West Mancodas Stadia
Players to Watch: Plamen Naoumov (DM/CM), Min Berg (DM/CM), Cahya Jones (RM/RB), Tasunka Ericson (Captain - LM)
Formation: 4-2-3-1, 4-1-2-1-2
Analysis: Midfield power is what Mancodas Athletic has prided themselves on, and it is no surprise that their key players are midfielders. This batch has seen the development of many defensive players, so their head coach Janna Freuden has adopted a more defensive formation and strategy. The players would definitely develop well under Janna's guidance, and being in top 4 should be an easy task. Whether they can be higher than 4th place should depend on whether they can utilise their defence as an advantage to close out games in an offensive league.
Prediction: 4th

Club name: Mancodas City U19s
Head Coach: Pitambar Brun, 58
Home Stadium: West Mancodas Stadia
Players to Watch: Nicole Potts (GK), Mitchel Rosales (Captain - CB/LB/RB), Ali Berger (CB), Florent Rivera (CF/AM)
Formation: 4-2-3-1
Analysis: Nicole Potts is a Dalaris City player, but has been loaned to Mancodas City to allow her to play in the PDL where she can get additional training. For Mancodas City, her addition has been beneficial. Widely seen as the replacement for Sandi Jaliaha in the national team, Nicoles' ball handling skills is a rare gift that she has, and she made many brilliant saves last season that allowed Mancodas City to get some extra points from losing positions. Her fellow U21 national team player, Mitchel Rosales, is an all-rounded defender that dares to go all out to make tackles and mark other players. Not to forget Ali Berger, Mitchel's regular partner in the middle of the defence, and Florent Rivera, the lone striker up front that has been getting in the goals. Bettering their performance last season would be a difficult thing to do, so pessimistically, we predict them to be in 6th.
Prediction: 6th

Club name: Sarim Potato U19s
Head Coach: Elna Magro, 51
Home Stadium: Potato Academy
Players to Watch: Matea Idowu (Captain - LW), Mac Rojas (LB/RB), Jordan Huerta (CF/AM)
Formation: 4-3-3
Analysis: 3 players in the Under-21 national team, with Matea Idowu being seen as the next Joel Haodao and already getting senior caps. What could be wrong for this team? Individuality, more than team strength, is the problem. Although Elna Magro is good at getting the players to play in their best positions, the team seems disunited at times, failing to coordinate to get the ball or do zonal marking, as Elna advocates. Fix that problem, and they could challenge Dury FC for the title again.
Prediction: 3rd

Club name: Sochra Mudra U19
Head Coach: Aristotle Paredes, 39
Home Stadium: Yttribas Park
Players to Watch: Abdul Huffman (Captain - GK), Rodolfo Middleton (CM/AM)
Formation: 4-4-2, 4-1-2-1-2
Analysis: They were lucky to have two talented players in Abdul Huffman and Rodolfo Middleton, both Under-21 team players. However, the rest of the club is outright mediocre, and it does not help their cause that they have a relatively young and inexperience manager in Aristotle Paredes. Of course we could understand the pick, with Aristotle being the former senior team captain and everything. However, his lack of experience results in rigidity in the club's tactics, and they are considered to be a predictable team.
Prediction: 10th

Club name: Totalaha U19s
Head Coach: Amse Brice, 42
Home Stadium: Totalaha Academy Stadium
Players to Watch: Jerome Bustillo (Captain - RW), Knute Robustelli (LM)
Formation: 3-4-3
Analysis: Their senior club got demoted last season while they went the other way in the PDL. We don't expect their stay in the top tier of the PDL to be for long, as they are on the extremely weak side.
Prediction: 13th

Club name: Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Head Coach: Orville Anker, 45
Home Stadium: Totalaha Academy Stadium
Players to Watch: Ellsworth Friedman (Captain - CM), Annika Badcock (CF)
Formation: 3-5-2
Analysis: Although they survived the last season in 11th, they lost their team's top scorer Lisa Winship, who has been promoted to the senior side and is likely to make an impact there. This season, with no clear leader, the band has fell to Ellsworth Friedman, another talented player for his age. But surely one player cannot carry a below-average team?
Prediction: 14th

Season 2 Results (Part 3 - PDL/RSC Only)

Postby PotatoFarmers » Sat May 16, 2020 12:55 am

The results below are presented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. This edition will feature the results of the PDL and any IFCF Rising Stars Cup Results.

Week 50 - Matchday 1
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 0–3 Sochra Mudra U19
Didari City Juniors 3–4 Sarim Potato U19s
Mancodas City U19s 4–0 Honas FC U19s
Dury Juniors 1–1 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Bikarish U19s 1–0 Jote United DT
Totalaha U19s 2–3 Forte Agureo EDS
Kistina Galaxy U19s 1–1 Fiskadaha FC U19s

And we are off! It was an exciting first night due to the presence of many big fixtures. Sarim Potato U19s play Didari City Juniors at the Stadium of Legends, the place where the senior team Didari City plays. Didari City Juniors was not expected to be in the top 4, but their abilities mean that they are a banana peel for any of the top 4 teams attempting to challenge for the title. On the other hand, Dury Juniors kick off their campaign at the Matty Horis Stadium against Mancodas Athletic U19s. For both sides who are definitely aiming for the title, it is a real test and winning this 6-pointer would surely boost confidence. Meanwhile, Fiskadaha FC U19s play Kistina Galaxy U19s at Shrewbury Park, and this should be an easy win for Fiskadaha FC U19s.
In reality? It was Fiskadaha FC U19s was unable to make it past Kistina Galaxy U19s, with Shirou Amatore being the man of the match as she managed to keep out 7 shots that night, letting in only 1. Meanwhile, Sarim Potato U19s survived a late rush by Didari City Juniors. Having romped to a 3-0 lead by half time with 2 goals from Matea Idowu, and one more from Jordan Huerta, Sarim Potato U19s was unable to maintain the solid defence they had in the first half. In the 55th minute, Mauricette Mondy got in a goal through a solo effort. 7 minutes later, Sarim Potato U19s conceded an indirect free kick after a foul on Teija Simon, and his free kick found the feet of Mondy, and at that angle she cannot miss. Although Jordan Huerta added a goal in the 70th minute, Teija Simon who headed in a goal from a Wayne Simpson corner to allow Didari City Juniors to keep the score 4-3 at the 78th minute. The last 12 minutes was just Sarim Potato U19s withstanding onslaught after onslaught, but in the end, they survived. Dury Juniors was unable to make it past a resolute defence back in Matty Horis Stadium, and only managed to get a goal each.

Week 51 - Matchday 2
Sochra Mudra U19 1–5 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Forte Agureo EDS 1–1 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Jote United DT 2–2 Totalaha U19s
Mancodas Athletic U19s 2–1 Bikarish U19s
Honas FC U19s 1–2 Dury Juniors
Sarim Potato U19s 5–3 Mancodas City U19s
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 0–1 Didari City Juniors

Sarim Potato U19s score big again with a 5-3 win over Mancodas City U19s, while Fiskadaha FC U19s made light work of Sochra Mudra U19 with a 5-1 trashing. Mancodas Athletic U19s got a crucial win over Bikarish U19s, falling behind from the 6th minute and it was up to substitute Yuki Shantaria to score the 2 goals in the last 25 minutes to bring home all 3 points. Player of this round? Can't tell. Ariel Bruce did excellently aganst Sochra Mudra, scoring 2 goals and providing 2 assists. On the other hand, Jordan Huerta scored a hat-trick and made one assist for Matea Idowu, while Matea Idowu was instrumental in providing 3 assists to finish off Mancodas City.

Week 52 - Matchday 3
Didari City Juniors 3–1 Sochra Mudra U19
Mancodas City U19s 4–3 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Dury Juniors 2–1 Sarim Potato U19s
Bikarish U19s 3–0 Honas FC U19s
Totalaha U19s 1–2 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Kistina Galaxy U19s 2–0 Jote United DT
Fiskadaha FC U19s 2–1 Forte Agureo EDS

In the biggest match of the matchday (and arguably, the only one of interest), the attendance record in the PDL was broken. 44,618 people was in attendance as Dury Juniors played Sarim Potato U19s again. Last season, Sarim Potato U19s did the double over Dury Juniors, but that was not enough to stop Dury Juniors from reclaiming the title again. Of course, the results of last season meant that Sarim Potato U19s had the better head-to-head record of 3-1-2 over the past few seasons. History is history, but the two strongest academies put up an entertaining match that is similar to a Mancodas derby or Bikarish vs Dalaris City in the Premier League. However, Dury Juniors was able to score 2 goals through set pieces in the 13th minute and the 39th minute. They never looked back, and Sarim Potato U19s was only able to get a consolation goal in the 77th minute through Matea Idowu.

Week 2 - Matchday 4
Sochra Mudra U19 1–5 Forte Agureo EDS
Jote United DT 4–6 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Mancodas Athletic U19s 3–0 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Honas FC U19s 2–0 Totalaha U19s
Sarim Potato U19s 1–0 Bikarish U19s
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 0–4 Dury Juniors
Didari City Juniors 0–1 Mancodas City U19s

A winter break came, and teams returned with exciting wins. Fiskadaha FC U19s maintained put forth another high scoring game against Jote United DT, while Sarim Potato U19s, Dury Juniors and Mancodas Athletic U19s got routine wins.

Week 3 - Matchday 5
Mancodas City U19s 2–3 Sochra Mudra U19
Dury Juniors 4–4 Didari City Juniors
Bikarish U19s 4–2 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Totalaha U19s 0–7 Sarim Potato U19s
Kistina Galaxy U19s 0–0 Honas FC U19s
Fiskadaha FC U19s 4–1 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Forte Agureo EDS 0–0 Jote United DT

Didari City Juniors narrowly lost to Mancodas City U19s last week, but fought really hard against Dury Juniors. They never surrender even when they were 2-0 down in 10 minutes, and managed to fight back to be 3-2 down by half-time. The rest, as they say, is history. Sarim Potato U19s was on fire, with Jordan Huerta putting 4 past a sorry Totalaha U19s side.

Week 4 - Matchday 6
Sochra Mudra U19 0–2 Jote United DT
Mancodas Athletic U19s 4–0 Forte Agureo EDS
Honas FC U19s 1–4 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Sarim Potato U19s 2–2 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 4–2 Totalaha U19s
Didari City Juniors 2–1 Bikarish U19s
Mancodas City U19s 3–3 Dury Juniors

Dury Juniors lost captain Eliza Tyler to a hamstring injury in their 4-4 draw with Didari City Juniors last week, and she was sorely missed as they lack a strong player in midfield. Her creativity, her ability to help the defence hold the fort, and her leadership was what helped Dury Juniors attain wins, but without her, they were not as good as they should be. Dury Juniors could settle for a draw, but somehow lacked the motivation to push for a win.

Week 5 - Matchday 7
Dury Juniors 2–3 Sochra Mudra U19
Bikarish U19s 3–1 Mancodas City U19s
Totalaha U19s 0–4 Didari City Juniors
Kistina Galaxy U19s 3–2 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Fiskadaha FC U19s 5–2 Sarim Potato U19s
Forte Agureo EDS 4–0 Honas FC U19s
Jote United DT 0–5 Mancodas Athletic U19s

Unexpectedly, it was Sochra Mudra who pulled off the shock 3-2 victory against Dury Juniors, being able to come out top as Rodolfo Middleton was fantastic. Middleton's creativity was in full force, creating many opportunities to allow his side to score enough to sink Dury Juniors. Fiskadaha FC U19s came out of a top-of-the-table clash against Sarim Potato U19s tops, with JAriel Bruce maintaining his top form to help his team put 5 past Sarim Potato U19s. It was so bad that Elna Magro had to apologise for the poor performance. However, you should give it to the home side, for knowing how to nullify the threat simply by shutting down Jordan Huerta.

Week 6 - Matchday 8
Sochra Mudra U19 0–2 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Honas FC U19s 0–0 Jote United DT
Sarim Potato U19s 2–0 Forte Agureo EDS
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 2–3 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Didari City Juniors 2–0 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Mancodas City U19s 3–3 Totalaha U19s
Dury Juniors 2–1 Bikarish U19s

For Sarim Potato U19s, they had to come back strongly, and against Forte Agureo EDS, they did it just as well. Mac Rojas was fantastic in defence, stopping many attacks and making clearances whenever necessary. For Fiskadaha FC U19s, captain Lucia Stuart was the saviour, making 2 fine crosses and scoring one herself to ensure that Fiskadaha FC U19s enter the IFCF break top and unbeaten.

Week 7 to 10 - IFCF Rising Stars Cup
First, in the first Preliminary round, Dury Juniors played the Equestrian champions Canterlot Stars. Starting away from home, Olen Vargas opened the scoring 3 minutes from kick off, making use of slick passing to go past the opposition defence. The opponents equalised in thee 27th minute, but it was Janelle Frederick who put Dury Juniors ahead again at the 64th minute. However, the defence was not okay (again, you could attribute the poor performance to Eliza Tyler's injury), so Dury Juniors conceded another goal to make the score 2-2. Returning home for the second leg a week later, Dury Juniors somehow defended an onslaught of attacks from Canterlort Stars and won on away goals. What was bad was that holding midfielder Angel Ingram, another key player in the starting 11, was also injured during the match.
However, against the Darmen Under-19 champions Seacoast United SC, there was no chance. Dury Juniors was not at full strength, and without key pieces of their strongest first 11, they were utterly beaten, losing 3-1 away and 4-1 at home, ending their run in the IFCF Rising Stars Cup.

Week 12 - Matchday 9
Bikarish U19s 2–1 Sochra Mudra U19
Totalaha U19s 1–2 Dury Juniors
Kistina Galaxy U19s 1–1 Mancodas City U19s
Fiskadaha FC U19s 1–3 Didari City Juniors
Forte Agureo EDS 5–2 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Jote United DT 1–6 Sarim Potato U19s
Mancodas Athletic U19s 5–2 Honas FC U19s

5 week break for everyone. Well, most teams. Dury Juniors came out of that break having got themselves eliminated from the Rising Stars Cup, but they regain their momentum with a 2-1 win over Totalaha U19s. Didari City Juniors ended Fiskadaha FC U19s' unbeaten streak, winning with Mauricette Mondy getting a hat-trick for herself.

Week 13 - Matchday 10
Sochra Mudra U19 1–0 Honas FC U19s
Sarim Potato U19s 2–0 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 0–2 Jote United DT
Didari City Juniors 1–3 Forte Agureo EDS
Mancodas City U19s 3–2 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Dury Juniors 3–0 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Bikarish U19s 1–0 Totalaha U19s

Unbelivable. Fiskadaha FC U19s never seemed to recover from that loss to Didari City Juniors, falling to another banana peel in Mancodas City U19s. In the 9th minute, Ali Berger got a goal for the home side after making use of the confusion in the penalty box during a corner. Florent Riveria scored another goal just 12 minutes later when the opposition made a mistake during their corner. Ariel Bruce got one goal just before the half-time whistle, but good link up plays allowed Mancodas City to get 3-1 up in the 70th minute. Though Fiskadaha FC U19s got a consolation goal through Antonia Charles.

First, let us look at the first division. Dury Juniors took this time to catch up with the top 3 teams. For Fiskadaha FC, they are only top because they have beaten Sarim Potato U19s and Mancodas Athletic U19s once each. However, there are 16 games left, so surely there should be more things to come? Mancodas City U19s are underperforming in 8th, owing to their away form of winning just 1 of their 4 games on the road. The worse team at home would be Sochra Mudra, only winning once out of 5 times, while Bikarish has turned their home into a fortress, winning all of their 6 games at home but losing all 4 times away.
In the second division, Jottim Juniors, Holhot Academy and Dalaris Sports U19s are fighting for the only 2 promotion spots. However, Jottim Juniors ought to be careful because they have performed the worst thus far in head-to-head matches, losing 1-2 at home to Dalaris Sports U19s and 4-2 away to Holhot Academy. At the bottom, the bottom 3 teams are desperately waiting for their first win in a ridiculously lob-sided second division.

Season 2 Results (Part 4)

Postby PotatoFarmers » Fri May 22, 2020 7:58 am

Week 14-24
The results below are presented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. The results include that from all domestic leagues/cups, as well as the IFCF and FFI club competition.

Week 14
First up in the week is the first leg of the IFCF Challengers’ Cup Qualifying Round, where Dury FC hosted CA Paulinthal of Pasarga. For the away side, it was the second time they visited Poafmersia this season after dispatching Mancodas City in the previous round. A goal by Jessie Mchargarita at the Matty Horis Stadium proved to be the difference between the two sides, though CA Paulinthal was obviously tired and was not at their best.

PF PDL1
Totalaha U19s 1–2 Sochra Mudra U19
Kistina Galaxy U19s 1–1 Bikarish U19s
Fiskadaha FC U19s 2–2 Dury Juniors
Forte Agureo EDS 0–4 Mancodas City U19s
Jote United DT 1–0 Didari City Juniors
Mancodas Athletic U19s 5–0 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Honas FC U19s 0–1 Sarim Potato U19s

Next up in the week is the 11th matchday of the PDL, with Fiskadaha FC U19s hosting Dury Juniors in Dreamers Park being the hotly-watched match of the matchday. For the Big 4 Academy Teams (Fiskdaha FC U19s, Mancodas Athletic U19s, Sariim Potato U19s, Dury Juniors), this is the last of the matches among these teams for the first half of the season. Fiskadaha FC U19s are experiencing a low with 2 losses in the previous 2 weeks, while Dury Juniors are coming back from their low tide as their key players return from injury. However, against big opponents, Fiskadaha FC U19s performed strongly. Ariel Bruce opened the scoring for the hosts in the 27th minute, finding the back of the net with a powerful shot from just inside the box. Dury Juniors fought back, scoring 2 goals on either side of the halftime break with Olen Vargas and Janelle Frederick scoring one each. Lucia Stuart’s freekick in the 78th minute helped the hosts equalise, and it turned out to be the last goal of the match at 2-2.

On Thursday, the FA Cup continued with Round 4. Dury FC’s match against Hoash Celtic, per the draw, was shifted to the following week to allow them to play their PL match on Saturday before their trip to Pasarga in the Challengers’ Cup.
Jote United (SL) 2-1 Forte Agureo FC (PL)
Kavalti Rangers (SL) 3-1 Holhot City (SL)
Pacifica (SL) 1-0 Nadari (NL3)
Sarim Potato FC (PL) 1-0 Holhot United (SL)
Fatas Harmas (NL2) 2-1 Sochra Mudra FC (PL)
Bikarish (PL) 3-0 Shishada United (NL1)
Didari City (PL) 2-1 Dalaris Sports FC (SL)
Homast Littia (NL2) 1-2 Paishi-jak City (SL)
Derby United (SL) 3-2 Nakarshi United (NL1)
Real Didari (PL) 3-1 Kisha Agureo FC (SL)
Offsdi Dalas (PL) 2-3 Trimidau Naksa (PL)
Rama Holma (PL) 1-0 Trimidau Rukiya (PL)
Totalaha (SL) 1-0 Honas FC (SL)
Kavalti River FC (PL) 2-3 Bishtas Jaska (NL1)
Kishdis Jolton (NL2) 1-0 Dolash County FC (NL3)

With none of the matches heading to a replay, allowing for the replay slot before the international break to be freed up. At this point, the National League still had 3 teams in the competition. Considering that most of the National League teams are non-professional sides, that is quite a feat to survive into Round 5. Just look at how some of them did it. Fatas Harmas did it with a 2-1 home win over Sochra Mudra FC. A team languishing in 16th place in the 4th tier beating a Premier League team who is ranked 9th, which is a 71 rank difference. In a less impressive win, Bishtas Jaska of NL1 defeated Kavalti River FC 3-2 away, having a 31 rank difference between both sides. Kishdis Jolton played Dolash County FC in the only match between non-professional sides. Other than the upsets by the National League sides, there were no big surprises. Pacifica got rewarded for beating the defending champions with an easy match at home to Nadari of NL3, while Bikarish easily defeated Shishada United of NL1 3-0. Derby United laboured to a 3-2 victory over Nakarshi United of NL1, while Trimidau Naksa put in 2 late goals to sink Offsdi Dalas away.

PFFA Premier League
Trimidau Naksa 1–0 Mancodas Athletic FC
Fiskadaha FC 0–1 Real Didari
Jottim FC 1–1 Dury FC
Forte Agureo FC 2–5 Dalaris City
Sarim Potato FC 1–0 Kavalti River FC
Bikarish 2–2 Sochra Mudra FC
Armed Forces FC 1–0 Kistina Galaxy
Mancodas City 5–1 Didari City
FC United of Mancodas 6–2 Rama Holma
Offsdi Dalas 1–1 Trimidau Rukiya
Fiskadaha FC was not involved in the FA Cup unlike their opponents, but they had much less energy as compared to their opponents who performed strongly to grab all 3 points. Dury FC rotated their squad against Jottim FC, and their substitute bench managed to produce a nice performance good enough to draw 1-1. Sochra Mudra FC made a reaction following their shock FA Cup elimination on Thursday, holding Bikarish to a 2-2 draw away. Aside, big wins for Mancodas City and FC United of Mancodas helped to boost the teams’ confidence, especially for the former, who now needs a series of good results to get back into top 4.

Dalaris Sports FC played Pacifica, and though the result was a 0-0 draw, the match was nowhere near a snore-fest. Both goalkeepers became their side’s respective saviour as a grand total of 17 shots was on target during the match. You had to give it to both sides for playing fast flowing football. One moment, the striker looks like they were going to score on this side of the field, the next moment, another goal is being attempted on the other side. Sharing one point each seems like the best thing to do.

Week 15
CA Paulinthal ended Poafmersia’s hopes at the IFCF Challengers’ Cup again, trashing Dury FC in the second leg 6-1 to qualify 6-2 on aggregate. The match was a night to forget for Dury FC, as the home side brutally tore past the Dury FC’s defence and managed to overwhelm the midfield. Probably an indication of the PL’s standards as compared to the big leagues around the world.
Having got themselves defeated on Tuesday, they returned home to play their FA Cup match on Friday. Of course, one more trophy is better than no trophy, so they fielded quite a strong side against Super League side Hoash Celtic, and came out 1-0 winners at home.

In the Professional Development League, teams simply forgot how to defend. Sarim Potato U19s and Fiskadaha FC U19s required goals in the extra time to secure all 3 points in their respective 9 goal thrillers. For Dury Juniors, while their senior team got trashed in Pasarga, they swept their opponents with a clean 4-0 win. Didari City Juniors’ match against Mancodas Athletic U19s was the showpiece of the night. For the first 40 minutes, it looked like a one-sided match as Didari City Juniors continued with waves of attack on Mancodas’ defence. However, after repealing those waves of attack, Mancodas Athletic got an opportunity to counterattack and managed to get a goal in from 30 yards, with Yuki Shantaria being the goal scorer.

In the Southwest derby, Trimidau Rukiya continued to stomp their way towards IFCF competitions with a 4-0 win over their city rivals, Trimidau Naksa. Being neck and neck with Bikarish in the second/third spot, Trimidau Rukiya would like to extend their lead on the fourth place team, and with 4th place Jottim FC being forced to a dull draw away to Real Didari, it seems that Bikarish and Trimidau Rukiya would be the only ones racing for the title... apart from leaders Dalaris City. My, the team’s motivation is strong! Falling out of the FA Cup meant that they could focus on the Premier League, and you can see the motivation at play when they played Sarim Potato FC. Despite falling behind through unlucky long range shots twice, they never gave up and with a few substitutions, they managed to keep 1 point in their 4-4 draw and keep themselves unbeaten. On the other hand, Fiskadaha FC’s downward fall from their early streak continues as they were thoroughly beaten 1-0 against Mancodas Athletic FC. Mancodas City was also defeated by Kistina Galaxy, meaning that at 15 points off the top, it is unlikely that they can regain their title again.

Derby United ended Pacifica’s unbeaten streak in the Super League. Kudos to Pacifica - they played quite well, though clearly Lady Luck was not on their side as many of their shots hit the post. Derby United, for their part, played defensive football, only pushing forward during counter-attacks and scoring their goals through set pieces. Pacifica’s loss meant that they fell from the top of the table, and Holhot United now lead the pack again on 37 points after holding the lead briefly in Matchday 8. Totalaha is behind on goal difference, while Pacifica is 3rd, 2 points behind the leader. Cochin FC would be 4th on 34 points, while Offsdi Galaxy is 5th on 32 points and that Dalaris Sports FC is 6th on 31 points. Tight race there.

The FFI club competitions continue. While Dalaris City won 1-0 in the Taça das Confederações (TdC) to ensure that they have one foot in the Round of 16, the 3 teams in the Liga dos Vencedores (LdV) continue to have mixed fortunes. Mancodas City is in good shape with 3 wins and a draw, but defending TdC champions Bikarish is on their way out of the competition with the heavy 3-0 loss away to Reçueçn FC. Bikarish has only 3 points in 4 games, coming from their win in Matchday 3 against Baywall Athletic. Dury FC’s position is still unclear with 5 points from 4 games, but the manner in which they drew Fleftic Army suggests that the players are still unable to score enough goals to get the team past the line.

In the biggest match of the night, the Mancodas derby ended in a 3-2 victory for Mancodas Athletic. Yuki Shantaria opened the scoring in the 27th minute, scoring from just outside the box into the top corner of the goal. The equaliser came from Mitchel Rosales, who took a direct free kick from the left side in the 42nd minute. Yuki then scored another goal in the stoppage time, after Tasunka Ericson found him through a cross. After half time, Mancodas Athletic dominated proceedings, with Tasunka adding a third for Mancodas Athletic after catching on a defensive error made by the Mancodas City players. Although Florent Rivera scored one in the 88th minute, it was too little too late as Mancodas Athletic FC was able to end the first-half of the season on a high. Of course, the players aren’t that happy that they are behind Sarim Potato U19s simply because they lost to them once. Nevertheless, it gave the players motivation to come back stronger in the second half in a bid to claim their first title.

Someone must have forgot that Jabik Henderson hasn’t retired, because when we went back to check the preview, his name wasn't there. But he started in goal for the match against Dalaris City, making his first start this season. To Keven Massey and Makana Tuft, his presence must have frustrated them as Jabik make saves after saves to allow Bikarish to pursue a 0-0 draw over the away side.

Holhot City’s hopes of promotion seems over after a 0-1 loss to Donbester. The way the home side lost the match reminded fans of their performance last season, where they were billed as an early title contender but do not possess the abilities to close out matches like this one. 6 points still separate the top 6 as each of the teams carved out wins. Meanwhile, it seems that Derby United’s title aspirations are still there, with a convincing 5-1 win over Notarsihan FC.

Jabik is definitely back for good. The first half of the season, an understudy has taken his place, but it seems that Jabik wants to end the season with a nice glittering trophy before he officially retires. Against Viserion Fire, his presence allowed Bikarish to get another clean sheet, but that 0-0 draw was too late for Bikarish, since they would get no higher than third place and would not be able to qualify for the TdC Round of 16. Mancodas City blew the opportunity to secure first place with a 1-2 home defeat to Namiri Forest, while Dury FC got a 1-0 win over Clube da Lusitânia to ensure that they remain in a position to qualify for the TdC Round of 16. Dalaris City qualified for the Round of 16 of the LdV with their 2-2 win over Dalaris City, but still needs one more point to ensure that they qualify for the Round of 16 as top seeds.

Surely Zahi Castillias is getting the sack. The performance that Mancodas City put up this week is very un-Mancodas City. Against Kavalti River FC, they were playing catch up throughout, as Kavalti River FC lead after their 14th minute penalty and never relinquished the lead. On the other hand, Dury FC pulled off a stunning 1-0 win against Bikarish to put pressure on the top 4 positions. Although Bikarish was leading statistically, in terms of possession, pass completion, shots on target, etc., Dury FC was able to pull off a magnificent counterattack in the dying stages of the match. Alex Hoboson managed to clear a shot after it rebounded of the post, and the ball flew far in front to find Daak Kalson, who crossed it to Alexis Dazin and Alexis promptly shot the ball into the far bottom corner, away from the goalkeeper.

Pacifica got a defeat again, this time round at the hands of Holhot City. For Holhot City, they badly needed to win to stay on pace with the 3rd spot, and by winning this particular 6-pointer, they would be able to catch up while pulling Pacifica down. Indeed, the players felt rejuvenated enough to do it once again by performing in big matches.

Speechless. Mancodas City blew a perfect opportunity to get top spot in the group by winning City of Light, but instead got reversed after holding a 1-0 lead for the first 45 minutes. Dury FC missed out on the Round of 16 of the TdC following their 1-1 draw with De Commons, but will join Bikarish and Dalaris in the LdV Round of 16.

Last match before the mid-season break, and Mancodas City took this time to rebound from their 1-3 midweek loss. Granted, they didn’t field their main starting 11 for that match, but against Dalaris City, they felt like a completely different side from the one that lost to Kavalti River FC. Full of swagger in the side, the home fans cheered and whistled loudly as Mancodas City scored 3 in the first half to take a 3-1 lead in the first half. Unlike last week where a select group of fans was calling for a sack, this time round, the atmosphere seems to have changed. Dalaris City fought back real hard, but Mancodas City played at the standard that brought them the title last year for the first time this season, and there was no way for Dalaris City to come back.

Sarim Potato U19s fell really hard this 2 matchdays. First it was their match against Mancodas City U19s, where Jordan Huerta missed 2 penalties and got his appeal for a 3rd penalty rejected by the referee. Mancodas City played particularly dirty that match, and was lucky not to get punished for making lots of tactical fouls and committing time-wasting. However, against Dury Juniors, Sarim Potato U19s was absolutely trashed. With nothing to show for it, they feel hard on the ground to allow Dury Juniors to run riot and win 3-0.

Now, we move on to the 4 friendlies.

Goals by Poafmersia: Handris 68’
Substitutes: Danzik Hoboson (K. Trasa 45’); Makana Tuft (Hisel 74’)

First 11: Jabik Henderson (captain); Alex Pickford, Alex Hoboson, Konile Trasa, Denise Pickford; Goon Figsh; Dargis Walshor, Jessie Mchargarita; Gisiik Moonar; Bytia Hisel, Shakira Handris

For all 4 friendlies, Poafmersia played the same starting 11, though the substitutes for every match were slightly different. For head coach Adnan, he did not intend to test out the team, but rather, had to rest certain key players for the IAC itself while getting some of the regular bench warmers to play some games together to see how they have improved. The friendly results was brutal, but nevertheless, there was some positives in general. Against Equestria and Baker Park, two strong sides that we have had friendlies before, the players knew how to adapt their playing style. Focusing on possession and breaking on the counter attack, the players did just that, especially with Shakira Handris in front directing counter attacks. However, the defence was a problem. Alex Hoboson and Konile Trasa provided pace and was good at marking, but they often failed to deal with long balls and crosses. Against Newmainstan, the team failed to defend set pieces, with Newmanistan getting in both goals from corner kicks. Little was mentioned about the match against Appalachian Nation, but in general, that match was very average and felt like a typical Poafmersian match without much positives or negatives.

Surely Trimidau Rukiya is not going to overachieve again? Make no mistake - their top spot is no fluke, but they have to ensure that they continue their top form for the rest of the 38-game season. For Bikarish and Dalaris City, they would definitely want to take the opportunity to grab a title this season, and their squads look to have more quality in breadth and depth as compared to Trimidau Rukiya. We are not going to rule Trimidau Ruikya for now, but for now, let us see how they improve when faced with the pressure.

Totalaha vs Holhot United. Two teams that was relegated last season, underestimated by pundits and neutral fans, and now they are in such high positions. However, it would be wrong to say that they are the only two teams in the title race, after we all saw how Pacifica and Cochin FC fell off the top spot. If anything, this promotion race should be rather interesting.

For the PDL, let us just say that the top 4 is neck and neck in the top tier. Dury Juniors has regain that top spot, but they did not dominate as much as pundits expected. Nothing more to say other than letting this drama play out.

Season 2 Results (part 5)

Postby PotatoFarmers » Fri Jun 05, 2020 1:46 am

The results below are boxsented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. The results include that from all domestic leagues/cups, as well as the IFCF and FFI club competition.

Week 25
PF PDL1 - Matchday 17
Forte Agureo EDS 3-3 Sochra Mudra U19
Fiskadaha FC U19s 2-0 Jote United DT
Kistina Galaxy U19s 0-2 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Totalaha U19s 1-2 Honas FC U19s
Bikarish U19s 3-3 Sarim Potato U19s
Dury Juniors 4-1 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Mancodas City U19s 4-1 Didari City Juniors
By this time you probably suspect that Sarim Potato U19s are experiencing a period of low morale. Against a mediocre side in Bikarish, they were a pale shadow of their former self, playing a rather slow game and often giving the opponents the initiative. Although they got a point, the manner of the draw was rather scrappy.

The season continues with the FA Cup Round 5. With 7 teams from the Premier League, 6 teams from the Super League, and 3 teams from the National Leagues, there would be at least 1 non-Premier League team in the Quarterfinals depending on the draw. Although the draw was unrestricted, none of the Premier League teams drew each other...which means, time for upsets?
Teams are from Premier League unless stated.
Dury FC 4-1 Fatas Harmas (NL2)
Didari City 2-1 Paishi-jak City (SL)
Real Didari 2-1 Jote United (SL)
Pacifica (SL) 0-2 Rama Holma
Trimidau Naksa 1-0 Derby United (SL)
Bishtas Jaska (NL1) 0-3 Bikarish (PL)
Totalaha (SL) 3-1 Kavalti Rangers (SL)
Kishdis Jolton (NL2) 0-2 Sarim Potato FC

...or not. All the Premier League teams won their matches, big or small, and the only match not involving Premier League teams turned out to be a Totalaha vs Kavalti Rangers match, where Totalaha dominated to become the lowest tier club remaining. No replays means things can be moved up the schedule, which also helps if clubs are playing in the FFI club competitions.

PFFA Premier League - Matchday 19
Didari City 0-2 Trimidau Naksa
Kistina Galaxy 3-0 Rama Holma
Sochra Mudra FC 0-3 Trimidau Rukiya
Kavalti River FC 0-1 Offsdi Dalas
Dalaris City 2-1 FC United of Mancodas
Dury FC 1-0 Mancodas City
Real Didari 0-0 Armed Forces FC
Mancodas Athletic FC 0-2 Bikarish
Fiskadaha FC 1-1 Sarim Potato FC
Jottim FC 4-2 Forte Agureo FC
Wins for Bikarish, Dury FC and Dalaris City meant that Mancodas teams all got beaten again. At the Matty Horis Stadium, Daak Kalson’s free kick in the 79th minute was what separated the two sides, as Mancodas City fell to another 0-1 loss to Dury FC. In Mancodas, Danill Trasa scored a brace to help Bikarish win 2-0 over Mancodas Athletic FC, while in Dalaris, Daas Taisg scored one and gave an assist to give FC United of Mancodas no chance. Meanwhile, Sarim Potato FC held Fiskadaha FC to a 1-1 draw, causing Fiskadaha FC to fall off the pace once again.
PFFA Super League - Matchday 19
Kavalti Rangers 0-2 Kinabitan
Kisha Agureo FC 0-1 Holhot United
Jote United 2-2 Offsdi Galaxy
Donbester 1-0 Madaris United
Pacifica 2-1 Paishi-jak City
Notarsihan FC 0-3 Cochin FC
Madaris Country 0-4 Holhot City
Honas FC 3-2 Hoash Celtic
Forche United 1-1 Derby United
Totalaha 4-2 Dalaris Sports FC
Every week, 6 pointers exist. Now it is Dalaris Sports FC’s turn to fall to Totalaha, allowing Totalaha to maintain their 3 point lead at the top as every other promotion candidate won their respective matches...save for Derby United.

Week 26
PF PDL1 - Matchday 18
Sochra Mudra U19 0-1 Mancodas City U19s
Didari City Juniors 2-2 Dury Juniors
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 2-2 Bikarish U19s
Sarim Potato U19s 8-2 Totalaha U19s
Honas FC U19s 0-1 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Mancodas Athletic U19s 0-0 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Jote United DT 2-1 Forte Agureo EDS
Trust Sarim Potato to bounce back. Handing Totalaha a big trashing seems to be an excellent way for the side to bounce back, allowing them to regain their composure to aim for the title. The result was good for them, considering how the competition was forced to a draw. Dury Juniors had to beat down a resolute Didari City side to gain a point, while Mancodas Athletic and Fiskadaha FC refused to give way and played out an entertaining 0-0 draw.

PFFA Premier League - Matchday 20
Trimidau Naksa 2-0 Forte Agureo FC
Jottim FC 2-0 Sarim Potato FC
Fiskadaha FC 4-0 Bikarish
Mancodas Athletic FC 1-1 Armed Forces FC
Real Didari 0-1 Mancodas City
Dury FC 0-0 FC United of Mancodas
Dalaris City 3-1 Offsdi Dalas
Kavalti River FC 2-5 Trimidau Rukiya
Sochra Mudra FC 3-1 Rama Holma
Kistina Galaxy 6-0 Didari City
So FC United of Mancodas learnt from their match against Dalaris City, and provided a resolute defence to stop Dury FC from scoring a single goal. Technically, Dury FC should have been happy with that single point, but with Jottim FC neck and neck, they could not afford to lose any points as that would disadvantage them in the race for fourth.
PFFA Super League - Matchday 20
Kinabitan 5-5 Dalaris Sports FC
Totalaha 1-1 Derby United
Forche United 4-4 Hoash Celtic
Honas FC 1-5 Holhot City
Madaris Country 0-2 Cochin FC
Notarsihan FC 1-2 Paishi-jak City
Pacifica 7-2 Madaris United
Donbester 0-1 Offsdi Galaxy
Jote United 1-0 Holhot United
Kisha Agureo FC 2-2 Kavalti Rangers


Week 27
PF PDL1 - Matchday 19
Jote United DT 1-0 Sochra Mudra U19
Forte Agureo EDS 2-2 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Fiskadaha FC U19s 2-2 Honas FC U19s
Kistina Galaxy U19s 3-3 Sarim Potato U19s
Totalaha U19s 2-3 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Bikarish U19s 2-3 Didari City Juniors
Dury Juniors 5-3 Mancodas City U19s
Dury Juniors extended their lead at the top with a convincing 5-3 win against Mancodas City. Without Nicole Potts in goal due to injury, Mancodas City defence went wide open. Dury Juniors’ front 3 of Olen Vargas, Makaris Sakir, and Janelle Frederick was unstoppable against Mancodas City, creating chances for each other and scoring a goal after another. Though Dury Juniors fell to Mancdoas City’s counterattack, their offence was too strong and Mancodas City stood no chance.

Matchday 21
Kistina Galaxy 0-1 Trimidau Naksa
Didari City 0-6 Sochra Mudra FC
Rama Holma 4-1 Kavalti River FC
Trimidau Rukiya 1-2 Dalaris City
Offsdi Dalas 2-6 Dury FC
FC United of Mancodas 1-1 Real Didari
Mancodas City 3-0 Mancodas Athletic FC
Armed Forces FC 0-0 Fiskadaha FC
Bikarish 3-5 Jottim FC
Sarim Potato FC 0-0 Forte Agureo FC
Throughout this season, attention has been focused on Mancodas City that we fail to look at their city rivals, Mancodas Athletic FC. Mancodas Athletic FC used to be the better and stronger club, but it seems that they are on a rebuilding and restructuring phase. Only a few of Mancodas Athletic FC’s starting 11 at the Camp of Power probably can only make it into Mancodas City’s starting lineup, while others may not even make their bench. If you were to draw a graph of the 3 teams’ progress, probably FC United of Mancodas this year has improved to overtake Mancodas Athletic FC. Is that bad news? Not really, since Mancodas Athletic FC does have the power to stay in the Premier League. However, if they want to find their extra revenue from IFCF competitions, then chances are they need to do some big changes real quick. Speaking of IFCF competitions, we cannot help but look at the top-of-the-table clash between Trimidau Rukiya and Dalaris City. The former dark horses playing the new dark horses? Surely every neutral fan would want to see the match...if not for the Mancodas derby. Dalaris City was that dark horse who rose to prominence 2 years ago, when they won the PFFA Champions’ Cup to become national champions. Two years from that competition, it seems that a new dark horse in the form of Trimidau Rukiya is trying to threaten Dalaris City. However, Dalaris City showed their strength in the game, with Keven Massey opening the scoring in the 40th minute after getting an assist from Daas Taisg. Daas Taisg then added a second in the 69th minute after getting fouled in the box. Although Emma Conner managed to score a consolation in the 80th minute, we could see that the game was obviously tilted to one side. Dalaris City had 55% possession, made 22 shots to Trimidau Rukiya’s 8 shots, had 10 shots on target to Trimidau Rukiya’s 7, and had a pass completion of 78% to Trimidau Rukiya’s 74%. Fantastic performance of Dalaris City, and surely they are now the outright favourites following the win.
PFFA Super League - Matchday 21
Kisha Agureo FC 3-5 Kinabitan
Kavalti Rangers 4-4 Jote United
Holhot United 2-0 Donbester
Offsdi Galaxy 1-0 Pacifica
Madaris United 1-0 Notarsihan FC
Paishi-jak City 3-1 Madaris Country
Cochin FC 0-1 Honas FC
Holhot City 3-1 Forche United
Hoash Celtic 2-4 Totalaha
Derby United 4-4 Dalaris Sports FC
Totalaha extended their lead at the top with multiple Cochin FC and Pacifica crashing to mid-table opponents, while Dalaris Sports FC and Derby United forced each other to a 4-4 draw in which defensive problems really showed. Looking at the table, it seems that both sides may be a bit off the promotion spots, at 38 and 37 points respectively, as compared to 3rd place Cochin FC at 46 points.

Week 28
PF PDL1 - Matchday 20
Sochra Mudra U19 3-4 Dury Juniors
Mancodas City U19s 2-2 Bikarish U19s

Dury FC 0-1 Trimidau Rukiya
Dalaris City 3-0 Rama Holma
Kavalti River FC 0-0 Didari City
Sochra Mudra FC 1-1 Kistina Galaxy
3 big games this week, and all 3 was extremely boring matches that produced surprising results. Mancodas City may have lost the title race, but they still have a surprising performance in producing a 0-0 draw with Fiskadaha FC. Granted, their attack may have lost their tooth. However, holding Fiskadaha FC was not in anyone’s mind before the game, and yet they did it. Meanwhile, their Mancodas rivals played out a dull game, in which Mancodas Athletic FC only won 1-0 by a penalty goal by Fayza Hoedemaker. Trimidau Rukiya, on the other hand, could overcome Dury FC away at the Matty Horis Stadium, producing a disciplined performance to defeat Trimidau Rukiya 1-0.
PFFA Super League - Matchday 22
Kinabitan 1-1 Derby United
Dalaris Sports FC 1-0 Hoash Celtic
Totalaha 0-1 Holhot City
Forche United 1-0 Cochin FC
Honas FC 5-4 Paishi-jak City
Madaris Country 0-0 Madaris United
Notarsihan FC 0-6 Offsdi Galaxy
Pacifica 5-3 Holhot United
Donbester 0-1 Kavalti Rangers
Jote United 6-2 Kisha Agureo FC
Trust Pacifica to beat Holhot United. No wait, we should say “trust Holhot City to perform at big occasions and beat Totalaha.” Either way, both results at the top means that the top 3 teams shifted real hard, with Holhot City now coming into 2nd place, ahead of city rivals Holhot United on goal difference.

Week 29
The FFI club competitions are back! While Mancodas City played in the LdV Round of 16, Dury FC, Dalaris City and Bikarish all entered the TdC Round of 16. It was a series of losses. In the TdC, Havynwilde’s Advernians hosted Dalaris City, but Dalaris City was trashed 2-0. Meanwhile, Dury FC hosted Zwangzug’s Arlington City, but was utterly beaten 1-3. The Sarian’s CF Bondstad handed the smallest defeat to a Poafmersian team, only narrowly edging Bikarish 0-1 at the Bikarish Stadium. Mancodas City somehow manages to keep their form in the regional competition, holding Ghirapur’s Fog Bank 1-1.

PF PDL1 - Matchday 21
Mancodas Athletic U19s 4-0 Sochra Mudra U19
Jote United DT 1-0 Honas FC U19s
Forte Agureo EDS 3-4 Sarim Potato U19s
Fiskadaha FC U19s 5-2 Trimidau Rukiya JDS
Kistina Galaxy U19s 2-2 Didari City Juniors
Totalaha U19s 4-5 Mancodas City U19s
Bikarish U19s 2-3 Dury Juniors
Defensive errors were on display everywhere, with Mancodas City, Dury Juniors, and Sarim Potato requiring late goals to take all 3 points. Fiskadaha FC did better, but they still leaked 2 goals against Trimidau Rukiya.

PFFA Premier League - Matchday 23
Sochra Mudra FC 3-3 Trimidau Naksa
Kistina Galaxy 5-0 Kavalti River FC
Didari City 2-8 Dalaris City
Rama Holma 0-3 Dury FC
Trimidau Rukiya 1-0 Real Didari
Offsdi Dalas 0-5 Mancodas Athletic FC
FC United of Mancodas 2-1 Fiskadaha FC
Mancodas City 2-3 Jottim FC
Armed Forces FC 0-0 Forte Agureo FC
Bikarish 2-1 Sarim Potato FC

Keven Massey and Makana Tuft’s return to the starting lineup ended in a goal scoring party for Dalaris City, as they each got themselves a hattrick to win 8-2 against Didari City. But...Mancodas City and Fiskadaha FC burned out from their last weeks’ encounter? Losing to Jottim FC and FC United of Mancodas seems absolutely wrong, considering that every win is important at this stage when teams are looking for the IFCF spots.
PFFA Super League - Matchday 23
Jote United 5-2 Kinabitan
Kisha Agureo FC 0-1 Donbester
Kavalti Rangers 0-4 Pacifica
Holhot United 2-2 Notarsihan FC
Offsdi Galaxy 6-1 Madaris Country
Madaris United 1-3 Honas FC
Paishi-jak City 0-4 Forche United
Cochin FC 1-3 Totalaha
Holhot City 1-4 Dalaris Sports FC
Hoash Celtic 3-3 Derby United
Now there are big matches every week. Holhot City’s brief entry into top 3 was ruined by Dalaris Sports FC. Meanwhile, Diya Cuocco scored 2 goals to help Totalaha increase their lead at the top to 5 points after a 3-1 win over Cochin FC.

Week 30
And we are left with 1 team. In the LdV, Mancodas City scored a late equaliser to draw 2-2 with Fog Bank in Ghirapur, edging out on away goal rules and progressed to the Quarterfinals. The other 3 teams in the TdC did not get better. Dalaris City could not find a way past Advernians at home, and could only secure a 2-2 draw to lose 4-2 on aggregate. Arlington City of Zwangzug showed no mercy, ramping up on the goals to win 4-2 and progress 7-3 on aggregate against Dury FC. For Bikarish, they still can’t find a way to score against The Sarian’s CF Bondstad, and came home with a 0-1 loss that meant that CF Bondstad qualified with a 2-0 win on aggregate.

Meanwhile, the PDL enters a 3 week break, as some youth players get called up by their senior clubs!?

We weren’t kidding about that. Mancodas Athletic FC called up Tasunka Ericsonto to play for the senior club against Trimidau Rukiya. Although that didn’t help Mancodas Athletic to win, his cameo earned some praises. Some pundits were even saying that he could very well be in the National Team in a few years to come, being able to handle players older than him and show his presence in the midfield.

Match went 2-2 aet. Didari City wins 4-3 on penalties

Dury FC vs Sarim Potato FC dominated the day. They kicked off an hour before Bikarish’s match against Trimidau Naksa, and nobody knew that Bikarish would be eliminated. But apart from Bikarish, Dury FC vs Sarim Potato FC was widely seen as the match that could produce the eventual cup winner. However, the away side was no match for Dury FC, and Dury FC showcased their true strength after Alexis Dazin scored in the 27th minute. For the remainder of the match, defence was the key saviour in preventing either side from scoring a second goal, causing Dury FC to just win by 1-0.

Derby United’s inability to score a single goal against Cochin FC meant that they fell 12 points behind the 3rd placed team, and that meant that they are falling out of the tight promotion race that has formed at the top of the table. For Cochin FC, they were missing some players and was expected to lose, but Derby United couldn’t score at all, allowing Cochin FC to hold on to a 0-0 draw. Cochin FC loved the result. With Offsdi Galaxy losing to Forche United the day before, the result allowed them to keep within 5 points from the third and last promotion spot.

Week 32
Double matchweek, folks! The Premier League and Super League plays twice this week, allowing for the matches to end earlier than planned. This is because of Poafmersia’s non-participation in the quarterfinals IFCF competitions, allowing things to speed up slightly ahead of a long World Cup Qualifiers.

What the hell happened? Dalaris City’s defence is getting more inconsistent. First they won big against Kavalti River FC, going back to the top after Trimidau Rukiya lost to 3rd place Jottim FC. Then they lost to Trimidau Naksa, causing Jottim FC to overtake them into 2nd place while Trimidau Rukiya regained top spot. Bikarish’s narrow loss to FC United of Mancodas in Matchday 27 meant that Dury FC could now get within 4 points from 4th place.

Mancodas Athletic U19s was also unlucky in their 1-0 loss, with many 3 shots disallowed for narrow offsides since Honas FC U19s was playing the offside trap card. The 2 losses allowed Dury Juniors to cement their top spot, and take one more step to winning the title.

Dury FC 0-1 Dalaris City
Daas Taisg’s 40th minute header turned out to be the difference between the Dalaris City and Dury FC. For that match, it was a rather close affair, with Dury FC aiming to get a good late run so as to be able to get back into top 3 positions. However, Dalaris City just simply defended, and played out possession-based football with their young and energetic players, forcing Dury FC to push forward and work harder. With age on the away side, Dury FC was forced into simply defending, and this caused really lots of problems. Meanwhile, Zahi Castillias has said that he has agreed to leave the club at the end of the season, following Mancodas City 11th loss of the season at the Naksa Stadium that caused them to drop to 11th place, a whooping 19 points behind 4th placed Bikarish. He said that his contribution to the club has reached stagnation, and that the club needs a new manager to bring them to where they belong.

Week 34
New Lusitania’s FC Porto hosted Mancodas City in the LdV Quarterfinals, with Mancodas City coming out 1-0 through a goal from Pete Carisa. After the bombshell announcement on Saturday, Zahi Castillias still remained confident that he can leave on a high by winning the LdV and keeping the trophy in Poafmersia. As a result, he fielded the strongest starting 11, and played extremely cautiously against FC Porto.

Meanwhile, in the Professional Development League, Dury Juniors extended their lead to 7 points, following Sarim Potato U19s’ win over Mancodas Athletic U19s. For both sides, the win is important as it determines who can stand a chance to chase Dury Juniors to the end. For Mancodas Athletic U19s, if they had won, they would be able to keep the gap at 5 points. However, with 3 more matchdays to go, the current situation means Dury Juniors can be crowned champions 2 weeks later, when PDL plays their Matchday 24.

Mancodas City chose to field a starter-heavy squad in the Mancodas derby despite a second leg in the LdV next week. However, the attendance of the derby dropped to an all-time low of 51,276, since Mancodas derbies are typically full house matches. Most of the attention turned towards Trimidau Rukiya vs Bikarish, where Bikarish successfully kept their 5 point lead over Dury FC with a late goal from Danill Trasa. For Trimidau Rukiya, the loss threw a spanner into their title march, allowing Dalaris City to regain top spot with a +41 goal difference to Trimidau Rukiya’s +35.

Week 35
Mancodas City’s quest to end the season on a high continued, after labouring to progress past FC Porto. At home with the fans willing to cheer the players on, Mancodas City laboured against FC Porto, trying to find the breakthrough to ensure that they remained up on aggregate. However, it was FC Porto who scored in the 72nd minute, forcing extra time since no other goals were scored. However, it was Danill Trasa who saved his team once again, scoring from outside the box past 2 defenders to win 2-1 on aggregate after extra time.

A heavily rotated squad meant Mancodas City threw away their game against Offsdi Dalas, confirming that they do not have depth in their squad. But the biggest surprised came from Bikarish, who failed to capitalise on their strong form against Rama Holma to lose 3-4. Armed Forces FC’s sturdy defence forced Trimidau Rukiya to a 1-1 draw. These results allowed Dury FC to cut their gap from 4th place to 2 points, and allowed Dalaris City to go 2 points clear at the top.

Week 36
Poafmersia may have beaten Zwangzug once, but against Bassabook Old Boys from Zwangzug, there was absolutely no chance for Mancodas City. At home, the team was routed 5-0, as the opponents piled immense pressure with slick defending and very well-rehearsed playing style.

Although leaky defence is a problem, Mancodas City eventually came out victorious to help Dalaris City go 5 points clear at the top following Dalaris City’s 1-0 win over Fiskadaha FC the previous day.

The Holhot derby couldn’t have come at a worse time. For both sides who are aiming to secure promotion, they simply could not afford to lose. Orlando Nelson was the main saviour of the home side, scoring a late free kick in the 84th minute to settle the difference, and put Holhot United 2 points ahead of Holhot City. Pacifica, meanwhile, had a 6-2 win against Forche United, remaining 4 points behind Totalaha while ensuring that they are 2 ahead of Holhot United.

Week 37
For Mancodas City, they would have no silverware to show after losing 0-3 away in Zwangzug, with Bassabook Old Boys showing their true capabilities.. Despite playing a slightly weaker team, the Bassabook Old Boys is still very capable of winning big and dominating play, further questioning Mancodas City’s squad even further, and making the leadership realise that Mancodas City does not have lots of good players on the bench.

Noting that Trimidau Rukiya’s early challenge for the title is falling apart, Dalaris City extended their lead to 7 points with a convincing 3-2 win over Jottim FC. Dury FC, however, continues to pursue the top 4 spots, taking advantage of Jottim FC’s loss as well as Bikarish’s dull draw with Kistina Galaxy to cut the gap between them and 4th placed Bikarish to 2 points. For Dury FC, 4th is probably not enough. They are very determined to also grab a spot in the FFI LdV at the very least, so their target would be 3rd place, and that too looks quite reasonable.

Pacifica’s top of the table clash with Totalaha proved that the title race is far from over, after Pacifica scored 2 late goals to turn things around and grab all 3 points. With Holhot City and Holhot United winning their respective matches, the top of the table looks even more tight than ever. Totalaha is top on 73 points, Pacifica on 72, Holhot United on 70 and Holhot City on 68. Meanwhile, losses for both Madaris clubs meant the end of their spell in the Super League, as they go relegated to the National League with only 7 points from 32 games. Notarishan, on 10 points, is also on their way out, but with 17th placed Kisha Agureo FC having only 24 points, Notarishan still has an outside chance of staying, though it looks impossible.

Week 38
Double matchweek again for the Premier and Super League, as the season enters the business end of the season. For many clubs, climbing each and every rank is important as it represents extra revenue in prize money. For some clubs, they are also chasing promotion, survival, while there are those few clubs who are looking for the IFCF and FFI club competitions.

A loss for Bikarish against high-flying Sochra Mudra FC meant that Bikarish would drop straight down to 5th place. For Dury FC, they climbed to 3rd place by their own efforts, defeating Jottim FC at the Matty Horis Stadium through goals from Daak Kalson (1) and Alexis Dazin (2). With a superior goal difference, they now lead Jottim FC despite having the same amount of points, and now would be aiming for Trimidau Rukiya, who remains in 2nd place on 71 points. Overhauling 5 points at this stage is not easy, but Dury FC would aim to do it so that they can get into the LdV instead of the TdC.

For Holhot United, they missed a golden opportunity to go 2nd after failing to find the net against Paishi-jak United, which also helped Totalaha rebuild a 4 point cushion.

That is it for Trimidau Rukiya? Not really, considering that Sarim Potato FC decided to play party poppers by romping to a 2-1 victory over Dalaris FC. Despite playing out a really tough draw in the Trimidau derby, Trimidau Rukiya was able to cut the cushion to 6 points and give themselves an outside path. Jottim FC’s 1-1 draw meant that Bikarish overtake them with 1 more point, settling down in 4th and the last IFCF Challengers’ Cup spot.

Week 39
The PFFA Cup enters its final stages, with the first leg of the double-legged semifinals coming first. Dury FC’s quest for a trophy is very serious, and they fielded a strong side to defeat Didari City 2-0 at home. Meanwhile Real Didari drew Trimidau Naksa 1-1 at home in the other match.

Bikarish’s aim to secure their top 4 spot can be seen by their motivation in defeating Dalaris City, racing to a 2-1 win over Dalaris City. Combined with Trimidau Rukiya’s 7-2 trashing away against Rama Holma, the title race is back on again. Meanwhile, Kavalti River FC became the first team this season to be relegated from the Premier League, with a 1-0 loss at home to Armed Forces FC. A leaky defence was the problem behind their relegation, with 107 goals conceded from 35 games.

Just when you though Pacifica could pile pressure on Holhot City ahead of their encounter next week, Pacifica just had to lose to Hoash Celtic. Unbelievable loss for the home side, as they couldn’t recover from going down 2-0 in the first half.

Week 40
In the FA Cup, Dury FC finished the job in Didari, scoring 2 early goals through Jessie Mchargarita and Donk Mason before the 30th minute to go 4-0 up on aggregate, before conceeding a late goal from Leela Duško. However, Real Didari still represents the city in the FA Cup Finals, making a late comeback to win 2-1 in Trimidau, and qualify 3-2 on aggregate.

FC United of Mancodas 1–2 Sochra Mudra FC
Mancodas City 3–0 Kavalti River FC
Armed Forces FC 0–2 Dalaris City
Bikarish 0–0 Dury FC
Sarim Potato FC 0–1 Real Didari
Forte Agureo FC 2–0 Mancodas Athletic FC
Jottim FC 1–1 Fiskadaha FC
Dalaris City would be participating in the FFI LdV next season, following their 2-0 away victory at the Warriors Stadia. However, their title would have to wait, with Trimidau Rukiya stomping to a 5-1 victory at Didari City. For the away side, this puts them one step closer to guaranteed relegation, having 4 points less than 18th placed Rama Holma. However, the race for 3rd is getting even closer than we think, with Bikarish and Dury FC playing out a dull 0-0 draw where both sides never gave way, just sat back and defend. There are other clubs like Sochra Mudra and Jottim FC attempting to make a late rush to grab top 4 spots, but they are likely to be doing it too late.
PFFA Super League - Matchday 36
Kinabitan 0–0 Holhot United
Offsdi Galaxy 3–2 Kavalti Rangers
Madaris United 1–1 Kisha Agureo FC
Paishi-jak City 2–3 Jote United
Cochin FC 1–0 Donbester
Holhot City 2–4 Pacifica
Hoash Celtic 3–1 Notarsihan FC
Derby United 3–0 Madaris Country
Dalaris Sports FC 2–1 Honas FC
Totalaha 4–2 Forche United
Pacifica broke the 100 goal mark with a 4-2 win over Holhot City, but somehow they are still lagging behind Holhot City on goal difference. Holhot United’s inability to break a resolute Kinabitan defence meant that Totalaha has a golden chance to win the League, and the next day, they did it with a 4-2 win over Forche United. Simple, easy, and Totalaha is back in the Premier League after being out for a season.

2 games to go. For Kavalti River FC, they have officially been relegated last matchday following their 0-1 loss to Armed Forces FC. Meanwhile at the top, it is 2 teams for the title, and another 4 teams for the last 2 IFCF Challengers' Cup spots. While Dalaris City is guaranteed a spot in the FFI Liga dos Vencedores, the second spot would be between Trimidau Rukiya and Bikarish, where the former needs only one point to guarentee the top 2 position. Fiskadaha FC's race for the IFCF spots failed for a second consecutive year, and they really need to reconsider their club strategy moving forward.

And...Totalaha has been declared champions, after Holhot City and Holhot United failed to produce wins to catch up with the top placed team. However, there is still things to play for. The Holhot clubs, along with Pacifica and Dalaris Sports FC, will fight for the final 2 promotion spots. Offsdi Galaxy and Cochin FC still has an outside chance, though that looks particularly impossible from our point.

Trimidau Rukiya and Totalaha. For both sides, their academy sides cannot catch up with the league and are naturally relegated. Meanwhile, Dury Juniors captures the title with their 2-1 win over Forte Agureo EDS, ensuring that they would represent Poafmersia in the Rising Stars Cup next season, as youth champions.

Jottim Juniors also gained their ticket into the top tier following their win over Cochin U19s. The second spot, however, is still up for grabs. Holhot Academy will host Donbester U19s in the last matchday, needing a full win to ensure promotion. Any other result would see Kavalti Rangers U19 snatch the last promotion spot if they win their match against Kisha Agureo U19s.

Note: National League clubs have 46 matchdays, and will have their last matchday next week.

Season 2 Results (Part 6)

Postby PotatoFarmers » Sun Jul 12, 2020 4:20 am

The results below are presented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. The results include that from all domestic leagues/cups, as well as the IFCF and FFI club competition.

PF PDL1 - Final Matchday
Sochra Mudra U19 4–3 Kistina Galaxy U19s
Totalaha U19s 0–3 Fiskadaha FC U19s
Bikarish U19s 3–2 Forte Agureo EDS
Dury Juniors 2–0 Jote United DT
Mancodas City U19s 3–1 Mancodas Athletic U19s
Didari City Juniors 1–0 Honas FC U19s
Trimidau Rukiya JDS 1–4 Sarim Potato U19s

There was nothing to play for in the final matchday. The emphasis here was for bragging rights in the Mancodas derby, with the Mancodas City U19s coming up top against Mancodas Athletic U19s. Apart from that, Dury Juniors got their well deserved 5th title of the season, and will take part in the IFCF Rising Stars Cup.

5.47pm: Before we move on, let us take a look at the table for the National League 1.

1 Red Gikashiar (P) 45 30 10 5 121 64 +57 100 Promoted
2 PF University (P) 45 29 11 5 117 57 +60 98 Promoted

3 Doche Bangsa (X) 45 28 9 8 114 62 +52 93 Promotion Playoffs
4 Gikashiar City FC 45 27 10 8 122 67 +55 91
5 Bishtas Jaska 45 27 10 8 103 62 +41 91
6 Kibinas 45 27 10 8 73 38 +35 91
7 Dakahs Nakahi 45 26 12 7 73 41 +32 90

The top 2 teams, Red Gikashiar and PF University, are guaranteed top 2 spots, meaning that both will receive direct entry into the Super League. Meanwhile, another 4 teams are in the race for 3 spots in the playoffs, which would produce the 3rd team to be promoted. Goal difference might be king here, with Gikashiar City FC having over 50 goal difference, which would give them a slight advantage here. But let us look at the key matches tonight.
PDL1 - Key matches for Matchday 46
Title Race
PF University (2nd) vs Chestervale (17th, 11-7-27)
Doche Bangsa (3rd) vs Red Gikashiar (1st)
Playoff Race
Gikashiar City FC (4th) vs Darimau Hasha (15th, 15-7-23)
Bishtas Jaska (5th) vs Dakahs Nakahi (7th)
Kibinas (6th) vs Craza Wanderers (14th, 16-8-21)

The odds are on PF University to win the league, considering that they get an easy match against semi-professional side Chestervale. Red Gikashiar last drew 1-1 with Doche Bangsa in the Matchday 23 reverse, and Red Gikashiar needs the win to get the title if PF University wins their fixture. Meanwhile, the race for the remaining 3 spots in the playoffs is interesting. Gikashiar City gets an easy match against semi-professional side Darimau Hasha. Kibinas plays Craza Wanderers, one of the weaker professional sides in the league, while Bishtas Jaska and Dakahs Nakahi play each other for a spot. The corresponding results in Matchday 23 shows who has the advantage. Gikashiar City FC won the reverse 3-2, and Kibinas won 2-0 away against Craza Wanderers. But Dakahs Nakahi won their match against Bishtas Jaska, so based on that, Bishtas Jaska might miss out on the playoff. The 12 PDL1 matches kickoff at 7.15pm, so we shall find out then.

5.50pm: Everyone will have their eyes on the 7.30pm matches. All 20 matches in the Premier League and Super League will kickoff at the same time, which is why today is known as the "Super Friday" of football. Right now, we are waiting for 6.15pm, where the starting squads of each club will be released.
PFFA Premier League MD37 Fixture List
Title race Matches
Dalaris City vs Mancodas City
Kistina Galaxy vs Trimidau Rukiya

Race for the IFCF spots (Top 4)
Jottim FC vs Trimidau Naksa
Real Didari vs Bikarish
Dury FC vs Armed Forces FC
Sochra Mudra FC vs Offsdi Dalas

Everything Else
Fiskadaha FC vs Forte Agureo FC
Mancodas Athletic FC vs Sarim Potato FC
Kavalti River FC vs FC United of Mancodas
Didari City vs Rama Holma (Relegation Battle)
4 teams racing for remaining 2 IFCF Challengers' Cup spots, while 2 teams are looking to grab the title. Dalaris City has the 3 point advantage at the top, but have a tricky tie against Mancodas City. Mancodas City would aim to end their season on a high, salvaging their season by reaching as much points as possible. But Trimidau Rukiya does not have it easy, playing against Kistina Galaxy, a side who is aiming to round off a very good season. Meanwhile, the top 4 race is heating up, as 4 sides aim to squeeze into the IFCF cup spots, which means more revenue and TV income. Just have a look at the table. Sochra Mudra FC, playing at home to relegation contender Offsdi Dalas, while Jottim FC plays Trimidau Naksa. Both teams need wins to ensure that they still have that outside chance if Bikarish or Dury FC slips up. Meanwhile, Bikarish can seal top 4 spot with an away win at Real Didari. They however, would hope to get into the FFI TdC, simply by maintaining 3rd place. Dury FC hosts Armed Forces FC, and with the latter fighting to not even step into the playoffs, this would be a race to watch.
Top 4 Race                   Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
3 Bikarish 36 22 6 8 96 60 +36 72
4 Dury FC 36 20 11 5 68 36 +32 71
5 Jottim FC 36 20 8 8 71 53 +18 68
6 Sochra Mudra FC 36 19 10 7 86 61 +25 67

However, the relegation battle is not as easy as you think!
PL Relegation Battle         Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
15 Armed Forces FC 36 8 8 20 19 38 −19 32
16 Forte Agureo FC 36 8 7 21 30 62 −32 31
17 Offsdi Dalas 36 6 8 22 53 97 −44 26
18 Rama Holma 36 5 9 22 57 106 −49 24
19 Didari City 36 5 5 26 34 102 −68 20
20 Kavalti River FC (R) 36 3 4 29 24 110 −86 13 Relegated

Just to remind you, 16th and 17th place enter Relegation Playoff Preliminary Round, 18th place enters the Finals of the Playoff, 19th and 20th gets relegated. Kavalti River FC has been relegated, with their ridiculous 13 points haul with 110 goals conceded. These teams are the only ones that could get into the playoffs or be outright relegated. Didari City and Rama Holma play each other, possibly deciding which is the other team to be outright relegated. The remainder of the teams will attempt to not even get into the relegation playoffs. For Armed Forces FC, their lack of strikers probably hurt the team, considering that they have quite a good defensive record of conceding only 38 in 36 games.

5.55pm: Then there is the Super League. Champions Totalaha host Kinabitan, and would receive their Super League trophy after the match. Meanwhile, the promotion race would likely go down to the wire, as we can see from the table below:
PFFA Super League        Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
1 Totalaha (C) 36 27 4 5 87 40 +47 85 Champions, IFCF LBCT
2 Holhot United 36 23 9 4 56 21 +35 78
3 Holhot City 36 23 6 7 86 43 +43 75
4 Pacifica 36 23 6 7 100 61 +39 75
5 Dalaris Sports FC 36 20 11 5 96 57 +39 71
6 Offsdi Galaxy 36 21 6 9 92 52 +40 69
7 Cochin FC 36 21 6 9 58 27 +31 69

6 teams theoretically have a chance of making it, though we don't see how it is possible for Offsdi Galaxy or Cochin FC to reach there. We start by reviewing the fixtures for tonight:
PFFA Super League - Matchday 37 Fixtures
Fixtures involving promotion candidates
Kavalti Rangers vs Holhot United
Notarsihan FC vs Holhot City
Forche United vs Dalaris Sports FC
Pacifica vs Cochin FC
Kisha Agureo FC vs Offsdi Galaxy

Other Matches
Totalaha vs Kinabitan (Trophy match!)
Honas FC vs Derby United
Madaris Country vs Hoash Celtic
Donbester vs Paishi-jak City
Jote United vs Madaris United
Crazy to think that both Holhot teams will play their games in Holhot next Saturday. So will Dalaris Sports FC, but thank god their city rivals in the PL, Dalaris City, will not be at home next Saturday. All the matches for promotion look simple, except for Pacifica vs Cochin FC, which has a chance of sending both Holhot teams past the line. The main focus of the night shouldn't be here though, though we would report the results frequently.

6.00pm: Time to rewind to the Mancodas City press conference around 2 hours ago, where Zahi Castillias was giving his second last press conference as manager of Mancodas City. He pointed out that Mancodas City should break the trend and seek for a foreign manager to take charge of his group of players. "Foreign managers probably have some additional tactics and strategies not known by local managers. They can inject even more competition into the league, and especially lead this group of talented players back to the pinnacle," he said. "Clubs are scared of foreign players, but I think this club deserves to start this trend, and seek foreign managers to lead the club to glory. The foreign manager may even bring some of the players from his nation along, causing the club to get even more raw talent which can result in success."

6.05pm: Lineups are due in 10 minutes, but it seems that Kistina Galaxy has leaked their lineup on Chirper. Nothing special, with the team playing the 4-2-3-1 that they have switched to for the 2nd half of the season. Everyone is speculating that this would be Bytia Hisel's last season with the side, with rumours coming out that she might join Dalaris City next season. On the other hand, Intov-Betva Uzo has been linked with many clubs in the race for a IFCF spot, with Trimidau Rukiya being the leading club to sign the Qusmi. His performance this season has caught the eye of many clubs, and as good fullbacks are quite rare in the league, he should likely be sniped away from Kistina Galaxy this season, if the player agrees.
Lineup for Kistina Galaxy against Trimidau Rukiya: (4-2-3-1)
Vasundhara Di Pietro;
Rexanne McNaughton, Anton Butler, Nuha Nilsen, Intov-Betva Uzo;
Kaleo Morce, Kristine Bjorn;
Katherina Johnsen, Asim Blomgren, Biel Harrison;
Bytia Hisel (captain)


6.08pm: Looks like clubs are having it early today! Trimidau Rukiya released their lineup a few minutes after their opposition did, with Alexri Timson starting again. At 36, his retirement is probably imminent, though we aren't sure if this is his last season with the club. He would lead the team out of the tunnel tonight this time, with manager Chang Hanson choosing to rest Lisa Winship instead. Emma Conner will give Timson the captains' armband once again for this big match.
Lineup for Trimidau Rukiya against Kistina Galaxy: (4-3-3)
Casimiro Milne;
Bohdan Pagani, Zayn Thomas, Anastasios Iglesias, Godascalc Mohan;
Emma Conner, Woden Sweet, Stribog Haines;
Alexri Timson (captain), Arnoldo Figueroa, Aubrey Mayer


6.11pm: A reader wrote in to ask what matches are we focusing tonight. The matches involving the top 2 in the Premier League are our highlight matches, but we will play some emphasis on the Premier League Top 4 race matches and the Super League Top 3 race matches. The remainder of the matches will be in the background. Having say that, since this is our Super Friday commentary, you will get your daily dose of Fiskadaha FC or whatever Premier League club you are supporting.

6.14pm: Speaking of Fiskadaha FC, let us just look at their club. It is really food for thought why they aren't reaching the place they are supposed to be. Having bolstered their squad with 2 defenders has significantly helped in solving their defence issue, but they are not getting the results they are supposed to get with this amount of talent. Fans have always said to give manager David Stainton some time, but if I was the owner, I would have replaced him long ago. The club is getting talents but not getting results, which means that the constant, which is the manager, is the cause of the problem. Sure, he has one more year on his contract, and it would probably be wise for the owners and fans to at least let him see out the contract. Hopefully, they are able to get the results they need next season.

6.16pm: So the starting lineups for the Premier League and Super League matches are trickling in, and since we are on Fiskadaha FC, let us just take a tiny look at their starting lineup against Forte Agureo FC. Considering that they have no involvement in the top 4 race, they have took the time to play some youngsters.
Lineup for Fiskadaha FC against Forte Agureo FC: (4-1-2-1-2)
Sandi Jaliaha;
Kyle Simonsen, Roberta Benvenuti, Talaat Demirki, Orislava Pensinger;
Goon Figsh;
Edna Anderson, Forzu-Ralox Kal;
Gisiik Moonar (captain);
Nelle Basurto, Havel Ljungstrand

Surprise surprise! Qetisan Monson starts on the bench. So will Whitney Rios, with Forzu-Ralox Kal playing in her place. The two Confederates (players from the Squornshelan Remnant States) are getting the right side of defence. Meanwhile, 22-year old Nelle Basurto and 20-year old Havel Ljungstrand are starting together at the front, with main striker Debora Pope being benched instead. Both young ladies will start together for the first time this season, and it seems that this might become a front pairing we hope to see in the national team? Assistant head coach Katiri Hedge was spotted in Fiskadaha today, and everyone is guessing he would come down to Dreamers' Park. Presumably the frontline would be the spotlight here.

6.20pm: The attention shifts to Dalaris, where Dalaris City will play Mancodas City in a top of the...oh wait. We should say, the former champions are here in Dalaris to decide if Dalaris City are deserving champions! Ah, yes, this is the better description. First let us see the lineup of the home side:
Lineup of Dalaris City against Mancodas City: (3-4-3)
Christine Faits (captain);
Ruedi Rojas, Wilford Lang, Tanja Rider;
Seward Adrichem, Daas Taisg, Gasti Hans, Tatanka Romano;
Keven Massey, Aleka Dufour, Kirsti Nieminen
The frontline averages around 20 years old, with Gasti Hans moving to central midfield. It feels like Mansi Kandero has decided to gamble with young strikers up front, choosing to play a very pacy game against Mancodas City. Whether this works depend on Mancodas City is bringing their best form here or not.
Lineup of Mancodas City against Dalaris City: (4-3-3)
Nanda Aalfs;
Alex Pickford, Johanna Kron, Simone Gori, Denise Pickford;
Natalie Carlson, Ftiks Wariq, Harta Rye;
Lara Jordan, Jamshed Ologin, Pete Carisa (captain)
I don't know anymore. Zahi Castillias is experimenting once again, playing a 4-3-3 formation with Ftiks Wariq playing in central midfield. They have trialled all sorts of ways to play their squad, 4-2-3-1, 3-4-3, 4-3-3, 3-5-2, but till today I am not sure what is their best strategy. Confederate Jamshed Ologin is one of those players in contention for "Best Young Player" Award, given his contribution of 16 goals this season. Of course, Pete Carisa is the real carry in the club with 39 goals and 12 assists, but Mancodas City have scored a lot this season in general.

6.25pm: We have slightly over an hour to spare, so naturally my attention will turn towards some of the other side matches that are worth a watch. We were talking about Mancodas City, so let us go to Mancodas, where Mancodas Athletic FC is playing Sarim Potato FC at the Mancodas Complex. Basically today we are going to place a focus on the foreign players in the league, so naturally we would have a look at this match.
Mancodas Athletic FC vs Sarim Potato FC
Lineup for Mancodas Athletic FC: (4-3-3)
Dikash Johikas (captain);
Ferdinand Conner, Clara Brivio, Ntombizodwa Sarka, Mattityahu Ramsey;
Zav Allaris, Dylan Faucheux, Iside Rosenberg;
Fayza Hoedemaker, Bonitus Tobias, Severino Franzese

Lineup for Sarim Potato FC: (4-4-2)
Feidlimid Aloi;
Mancest Nilson, Frode Zeni, Shadi Asphodel, Estevo Gauthier;
Dargis Walshor (captain), Suada Aalders, Riya Keil, Gulba Kulkarni;
Yeong-Suk Becker, Mika Toyotomi-Bariain

The only Hinodejin in the league will play here in this match, and for her, her season was ruined by injuries here and there. Her performance throughout the season is average, but she has immense potential. Many pundits have pointed out that her skills and talent is something that is very raw and needs even more sharpening. The match here features quite a number of young foreign talents, including Gulba Kulkarni. The Confederate has partnered up with Dargis Walshor very well, with lots of side-to-side passing that makes play very spread out. Sarim Potato FC is a young and exciting side in general, and they have the advantage here. On the other hand, Mancodas Athletic FC is a club that is in their renewal phase, and last season, they did make one foreign import in Zav Allaris, the central midfielder. He would be playing against his fellow country man on one side of the pitch.

6.31pm: The first guests are coming into the stadiums, and we are already seeing the national team coaches around. Nelson Sanchez, the youth coach, is spotted to the Dalaris State Stadium, while in Mancodas Complex, Adnan Suliaha is taking to the fans who came early. No sign of Katiri Hedge in Dreamers' Park, however.

6.34pm: Almost full? You are kidding right!
Image

6.37pm: Keep it going with the messages, we would love to hear you!
@jan12ika - Seems that @DuryFC are attempting to rotate their players? The squad is a far cry from their usual squad! #SuperFriday #DRYAFC

@heyijustmatthew - I know @PFBCSports is putting an emphasis on the 2 title winning clubs, but do give @BikarishFootball a shoutout! They are looking to secure their FFI TdC spot, so they will give the match all their best. #SuperFriday #RDIBKH

@gahsy777 - I am calling it, @PCarisa is going to score 2 goals and @MCFC will win 2-0. #PLFootball #SuperFriday #DLCMNC


6.42pm: We spoke with Adnan Suliaha down at the Mancodas Complex, and he said that he is looking out for some players to join the team at the Qualifiers for WC85. "This match here is going to be a very close affair, and I have quite a number of players on my long list who is playing tonight. Time to see for myself which of them deserve to join the National Team pool."

6.49pm: I think many neutral fans would be glad to see that too!
Image

6.56pm: We are less than 20 minutes away from the start of the Super Friday, and 35 minutes till our PL and SL matches kick off. Everyone is guessing where Katiri Hedge would show up. My bets are still placed on Dreamers Park, but I may be wrong?

7.00pm: FC United of Mancodas plays Kistina Galaxy tonight, with a win for the former guaranteeing a top 8 placing. FC United of Mancodas' meteoric rise to be above their noisy neighbours, Mancodas City, is no fluke, and one player we should thank is Matt Barney. The Xannerian striker had contributed many goals for the club, scoring 29 goals and making 14 assists in 26 appearances in the league. Of course, you cannot compare to Dury FC's Alexis Dazin, which scored 37 goals, or Pete Carisa. But Alexis Dazin has the benefit of good players like Daak Kalson to give him the goals, while Pete Carisa is a talented winger at his peak. But Matt Barney did quite the job in his first season, catapulting them to such a high position. Hopefully, this marks the start of something new for the player?

7.05pm: Back to Chirper.
@sWantomi - @PFBCSports Thanks for reporting about Matt Barney. We should be indebted to him for performing so well this season. #SuperFriday #FCMKSG

@neverJoe6 - Something tells me that Bikarish would win, and Trimidau Rukiya will lose to give Bikarish a chance to enter the LdV. #SuperFriday

@mancodasFanatic - @PCarisa go for the goals and the golden boot! #SuperFriday #DLCMNC


7.09pm: 6 minutes till the National League 1 matches start. We are looking to make some rare reports about the situation there, since we need to have an idea who might be playing in the playoffs, right?

7.11pm: Timurian Han Engin will start on the bench tonight for FC United of Mancodas. The right back has been an understudy to Amit Guerrero, the veteran right back, with Guerrero reaching 35 this year and expecting to retreat, Engin would be expected to step up to the fore front. But being 19 next season, surely that is too young for a regular? Poafmers who are 19 would still be playing in the PDL, but unfortunately Engin would not be able to play in the Poafmer-only league. Maybe, but Engin has made quite some performances when coming off the bench, and during his one start in the FA Cup. Maybe next season he can slowly get some starts, but surely FC United would need to find a third rightback. After all, switching to a 3-man backline whenever Guerrero is injured right is not the correct way in my opinion.

7.13pm: Rain is starting to fall in the Matty Horis Stadium, where Dury FC plays Armed Forces FC. Time for a more careful match from the home side?

7.15pm: It is kickoff in 12 stadiums, for the final matchday of football in the National League. We would report updates in our 5 key matches as soon as possible.

7.18pm: Are we getting another high-scoring match again?
#StatsTime
9 - The last time Bikarish played Real Didari, both sides scored a total of 9 goals. That was the first time in 3 meetings did Bikarish defeat Real Didari. #RDIBKS


7.20pm: For those people who are not familiar with what that means, let me tell you. Last season, Bikarish loss their home fixture against Real Didari 0-3, before coming to draw 1-1 away. This season, Bikarish won the home fixture 5-4.

7.21pm: Since we are talking about history, let us talk about Mancodas City vs Dalaris City. Dalaris City has never beaten Mancodas City in the league. Last season, Mancodas City won 2-1 away before winning 2-0 at home. This season, the match ended 3-2 in favour of Mancodas City at the Camp of Power. For Dalaris City to seal the title at the Dalaris State Stadium, they need to grab more points as compared to Trimidau Rukiya. Will history change tonight for Dalaris City?

7.23pm: Slowly, the sides are walking out at 20 stadiums nationwide. Fans are all seated waiting for the show to start, with loud cheers ringing all around. The standard pre-match proceedings are well underway.

7.28pm: In the Matty Horis Stadium, Armed Forces FC will be the one kicking off, while Kistina Galaxy will kick off in the Theatre of Light. In the Dalaris State Stadium, it would be Dalaris City that kicks off, while Bikarish gets the honors in Old Grashja. In Stadium si Pacific, Cochin FC will start against Pacifica, while both Holhot sides will do the kickoff in their respective matches.

7.30pm: Beep! We are off here in the Matty Horis Stadium, where Dury FC will play Armed Forces FC. The starting whistle also goes off in many other places, with Dalaris State Stadium being one of the last ones to do so.

7.33pm: 3 minutes into the match, and in the Super League, Jote United have scored their first goal against Madaris United. Just wow. An early corner combined with poor defending meant that Jote United could just get that first goal.

7.35pm: Just to update you on things in the National League 1 20 minutes into their match:
NL1 - Selected MD46 fixtures
PF University 2–0 Chestervale
Doche Bangsa 0-1 Red Gikashiar
Gikashiar City FC 0-0 Darimau Hasha
Bishtas Jaska 1–0 Dakahs Nakahi
Kibinas 0–0 Craza Wanderers

PF University has romped to an easy 2-0 victory, and as things look, the table is looking absolutely juicy.
PF National League 1  Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
1 Red Gikashiar (P) 46 31 10 5 122 64 +58 103 Promoted
2 PF University (P) 46 30 11 5 119 57 +62 101 Promoted
3 Bishtas Jaska 46 28 10 8 104 62 +42 94
4 Doche Bangsa (X) 46 28 9 9 114 63 +51 93 Promotion Playoffs
5 Gikashiar City FC 46 27 11 8 122 67 +55 92
6 Kibinas 46 27 11 8 73 38 +35 92
7 Dakahs Nakahi 46 26 12 8 73 42 +32 90

As it stands, Dakahs Nakahi will miss the playoffs, and Red Gikashiar will be champions. PF University has fished out a 2-0 win, but they need to pray that Doche Bangsa does them a favour and force a draw at the bare minimum. For now, PF University can only continue to score, as Doche Bangsa fight a really close battle.

7.38pm: CLOSE! Aleka Dufour almost make it 1-0 for the hosts after beating 2 defenders. He shoots, but it hits the post at the top and deflects out for a goal kick. Mansi Kandero cannot be more dissapointed.

7.42pm: 12 minutes in, and nothing is coming through in the Premier League. Nothing interesting at all, nothing really worth talking about. However in the Super League, things are starting to really get exciting, and we must have missed them all. Holhot City is currently 1-0 up against Notarsihan FC, thanks to a freekick from Seda Vidal. Jote United is 2-0 up against Madaris United, while Totalaha is 0-1 down against Kinabitan.

7.43pm: No wait. Totalaha is now 0-2 down against Kinabitan. Yet another defensive mistake from Akpan Nass has seen Kinabitan score their 2nd goal in 13 minutes. This is surely not what you would expect from the champions.

7.45pm: Text messages from our viewers
John Atiks - What is going on? The PL teams are being overly careful with regards to their play. Having really seen close enough shots apart from Dufour's attempt against Mancodas City.
Tysler Yudy - FC United of Mancodas got ignored by all of you? They have had one really good shot on target by Matt Barney but Arjun Arendse kept it out with a really fine save.


7.46pm: Okay Yudy, we heard you. You have literally done our job by describing what happened there. In fact, Matt Barney had made 3 shots, but that was the only one on target and it ended with a perfect save from Arendse of Kavalti River FC.

7.48pm: GOAL! Actually there was 2 in quick succession in different places. First it was Likarish Gyits, who found the goal for FC United of Mancodas after receiving the ball from Barney. The defence couldn't deal with their one-two and allowed Gyits and Barney to get into the box. Instead of shooting, Barney simply passed the ball to Gyits who was in a better position, and Gyits converted. It is Kavalti River FC 0, FC United of Mancodas 1 now.

7.49pm: The second goal in the 18th minute came from Leela Duško of Didari City, who converted a penalty after he was fouled in the box by an opposition player. Nothing more, but it is now Didari City 1, Rama Holma 0.

7.51pm: The goals come in too fast in the Super League. Totalaha is now 1-2 against Kinabitan, while Jote United found their 3rd goal in 21 minutes. Pacifica is now 1-0 up, and so is Donbester and Honas FC. The current results are as follows:
Super League MD37 - As at 21st minute
Kavalti Rangers 0–0 Holhot United
Notarsihan FC 0–1 Holhot City
Forche United 0–0 Dalaris Sports FC
Pacifica 1-0 Cochin FC
Kisha Agureo FC 0–0 Offsdi Galaxy
Totalaha 1-2 Kinabitan
Honas FC 1-0 Derby United
Madaris Country 0–0 Hoash Celtic
Donbester 1–0 Paishi-jak City
Jote United 3-0 Madaris United


7.53pm: More messages from viewers
Nakira - Where is the excitement? Mancodas City vs Dalaris City feels like a snorefest more than anything. Apart from one or 2 nice buildups, the past 20 minutes or so has been boring.
Jaxin Hansio - Matt Barney's goal poaching abilities have always saved FC United of Mancodas, and his partnership with Likarish Gyits in front is unbeatable.
@yawrertyn - The promotion race in Super League is more exciting then the Premier League title race. Something is definitely wrong here.


7.55pm: GOAL! It is Fiskadaha FC 1, Forte Agureo 0. Havel Ljungstrand is the scorer for this one, after finding a ball from Gisiik Moonar. She simply ran forward immediately after getting the ball, running past the stunned defenders with her amazing pace, and beat the goalkeeper to score.

7.57pm: GOAL! Sofía Alessi's ability to poach goals from funny places is something that has kept her and Jottim FC relevant. You can't imagine scoring from the 30 degree position, but she promptly curved the ball into the right side of the post and scored past a stunned goalkeeper. Jottim FC 1, Trimidau Naksa 0!

7.58pm: Penalty! Pete Carisa was dribbling the ball in the box when defender Wilford Lang made a slide tackle on Carisa. The tackle was a bit rough, as the referee draws the yellow card and points to the spot! Can Carisa convert this and give Mancodas City the lead?

7.59pm: GOAL! Pete Carisa just went straight for the top corner with no questions asked. It is an easy 1-0 lead for Mancodas City against Dalaris City!

8.01pm: Since we are quite free, we turns towards the Super League matches. A whole bunch of goals had happened, with Holhot City scoring 1 more...no wait it is 2 more now. So they lead 3-0 against Notarsihan FC. Totalaha has scored 1 more to tie 2-2, while Hoash Celtic has scored 1 to lead 1-0 against Madaris Country. Jote United romped to a 4-0 lead right now, with Madaris United probably in a sorry state.

8.02pm: Chang Hanson is now pacing the coaching box up and down. Despite efforts from the front 3 of Aubrey Mayer, Arnoldo Figueroa and Alexri Timson, Trimidau Rukiya only managed 2 shots on target and a total of 4 shots. Kistina Galaxy is parking the bus - there is no way they are letting the away side score the first goal.

8.03pm: CLOSE! It is Alexis Dazin who makes an excellent attempt for Dury FC, getting in the ball after getting a cross from Jessie Mchargarita. Dazin shoots but goes narrowly offside, as the home fans feel extremely disappointed at the attempt.

8.04pm: GOAL! And Likarish Gyits scores again following a fantastic cross from Bastia Hansilon! Hansilon was being marked by 2 defenders, but she promptly launched a long ball over to Gyits in the other side, who simply made a low shot to the bottom corner to get it in. It is now Kavalti River FC 0, FC United of Mancodas 2!

8.06pm: There isn't much excitement on the field anywhere, so we take this time to look at the key National League 1 matches, where the championship and playoffs is at stake. Everyone's half-time whistle has blown for now, so we shall take a look.
Selected NL1 MD46 Fixtures - as of half-time
PF University 2–0 Chestervale
Doche Bangsa 1–1 Red Gikashiar
Gikashiar City FC 2-0 Darimau Hasha
Bishtas Jaska 1–0 Dakahs Nakahi
Kibinas 0–1 Craza Wanderers

And therefore, the tables will look like this.
PF National League 1     Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
1 PF University 46 30 11 5 119 57 +62 101
2 Red Gikashiar 46 30 11 5 122 65 +57 101
3 Gikashiar City FC 46 28 10 8 124 67 +57 94
4 Doche Bangsa 46 28 10 8 115 63 +52 94
5 Bishtas Jaska 46 28 10 8 104 62 +42 94
6 Kibinas 46 27 10 9 73 39 +34 91
7 Dakahs Nakahi 46 26 12 8 73 42 +31 90

Red Gikashiar needs a win tonight in order to secure the championship, having a poorer goal difference as compared to PF University. As it stands, Dakahs Nakahi is not going to make it unless they stage a comeback against Bishtas Jaska. The matchups currently for the playoffs would be Gikashiar City FC vs Kibinas, and Doche Bangsa vs Bishtas Jaska. PF University will be our NL1 champions if these results goes on. However, the results are so close that anything can happen.

8.07pm: Even more comments from our viewers
@pinguftw: Can someone explain to me how Dalaris City is not breaking past Mancodas City? Is it just that without Makana Tuft, they cannot score? #SuperFriday #DLCMNC

@kaslj: If Pete Carisa does not make it into the #PLTop11 I am going to rage. Surely he qualifies as a center forward. #DLCMNC


8.09pm: GOAL! What is going on? FC United of Mancodas scores their 2nd goal in 5 minutes, with Matt Barney being the scorer this time round. Finding a break in the defence, he made an ambitious shot from outside the box, but manages to slip it past the goalkeeper! It is Kavalti River FC 0, FC United of Mancodas 3!

8.10pm: Surely that is just poor defending. There is no way that shot could have made sense from anyone's perspective, and the opposition was just caught sleeping. You have 5 minutes plus injury time left, just buck up!

8.11pm: In the Super League, Jote United just went 5-0 up as Hildur Glover completes his hat-trick for the side. Diya Cuocco also gave Totalaha the lead for the first time today as they lead Kinabitan 3-2.

8.12pm: GOAL! Didari City gets another goal in through a header from Christin Draper. It is another goal from set pieces for the side, as they aim to end their season in the top 10. Didari City 2, Rama Holma 0

8.14pm: We are 1 minute from halftime, pending any injury time. Looks like it would be additional 5 minutes at the Dalaris State Stadium for the biggest match of the night, and 3 minutes at the Theatre of Light for the next biggest one between Kistina Galaxy and Trimidau Rukiya.

8.15pm: Only 1 minute extra at Riverson, where the home side Kavalti River FC is being dominated by FC United of Mancodas...but not for long as Yafe Lauwens and Kristina Mendes are making an attempt. Passing here and there, Callie Franco comes in to intercept but got pushed away by Lauwens. Wigbrand Guillaume is stunned as Mendes and Lauwens do a 1-2 past him. Lauwens shoots! Arjun Arendse gets to it and pushes the ball out, only for Mendes to find the ball and shoot! GOAL! It is now Kavalti River 1, FC United of Mancodas 3!

8.16pm: GOAL! It is Aubrey Mayer who provides the breakthrough for Trimidau Rukiya, as the away fans in the Theatre of Light cheer! A simple goal as you look at it, with a very traditional buildup, but Mayer did it to allow Trimidau Rukiya to take the lead. It is now Kistina Galaxy 0, Trimidau Rukiya 1.

8.17pm: BEEP! The half-time whistle starts to blow in the Premier League and Super League, with only 6 of the 20 matches still continuing. Bonitus Tobias is attempting to score here at the Mancodas Complex, but Sarim Potato FC is having none of it as Frode Zeni takes control. A clearance from Zeni...and that is the last kick of the half!

8.18pm: At the Dalaris State Stadium, Keven Massey is making a cross to Aleka Dufour, as Dalaris City search for an equaliser. Dufour tries to go forward but is blocked by a few players, so cross the ball back to Massey. Dalaris City have been searching for a breakthrough this game, but with the front 3 wasting their chances, and Mancodas City making a serious defence, it has become rather difficult.

8.19pm: Whistle is out at all 20 matches in the PL and SL, except for the big match at the Dalaris State Stadium. The NL1 matches, meanwhile, are all restarting or have restarted, with the last match being the key match between Doche Bangsa and Red Gikashiar. Both sides are level 1-1 after 45 minutes, and with both sides looking for a win, the second half might be interesting.

8.20pm: And so the whistle goes at the Dalaris State Stadium. Dalaris City are 0-1 down, while Trimidau Rukiya is 1-0 up at the Theatre of Light. Here are our 20 PL/SL match results as at half time.

8.22pm: As it stands, the PL title cannot be decided today, since Trimidau Rukiya is winning their match. It might go down to goal difference or even goals scored if both sides win their final fixture. As it stands, both Dalaris City and Trimidau Rukiya are confirmed to participate in the FFI Liga dos Vencedores, while Sochra Mudra FC is out of the top 4 race.
PFFA Premier League          Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
1 Dalaris City 37 25 6 6 96 50 +46 81

Looking at the bottom of the table, the final guaranteed relegated place is between Didari City and Rama Holma, while Offsdi Dalas looks set to be in the preliminary round of the relegation playoffs. Basically, it would be Armed Forces FC/Forte Agureo FC vs Offsdi Dalas, with the loser playing Rama Holma or Didari City in the playoff finals to decide the final relegated team.

8.24pm: We move on to the Super League Promotion race, which another spotlight of tonight.
PFFA Super League        Pld    W   D   L    GF   GA   GD   Pts 
1 Totalaha (C) 37 28 4 5 91 42 +49 88 Champions, IFCF LBCT
2 Holhot United 37 23 10 4 56 21 +35 79
3 Holhot City 37 24 6 7 89 43 +46 78
4 Pacifica 37 24 6 7 102 61 +41 78
5 Dalaris Sports FC 37 21 11 5 97 57 +40 74
6 Offsdi Galaxy 37 21 7 9 92 52 +40 70
7 Cochin FC 37 21 6 10 58 29 +29 69
By the looks of it, the promotion spots would go down to the wire. Holhot United, Holhot City and Pacifica are neck and neck, with Holhot City and Pacifica just 5 goal difference apart. Big wins are very important here for Pacifica in order to promote. Dalaris Sports FC, Offsdi Galaxy and Cochin FC are all out of the race at this rate, unless someone slip up.

8.26pm: How is the night going? Matches will resume in 5-8 minutes time from now, but the fans are probably restless. A whole lot of messages are coming through on Chirper, so we have decided to publish a few of them here.
@balshsiu2 - If anything, we have learnt that Holhot is clearly a better footballing city than Madaris. #SuperFriday

@kashi8xxx - While Dalaris City is aiming for the Premier League title, Dalaris Sports FC cannot even get into the Premier League. #DalarisCityistheBest #SuperFriday #DLCMNC

@nansiyfjkk - Dalaris City has been fighting hard but seems to be unlucky. Go Dalaris City, and get that win against our rivals! #DLCMNC #SuperFriday

@dury4eva - Dury FC don't look at ease against Armed Forces FC tonight, but I think Sadi That will work his magic again and come out of the tunnel stronger. #DRYAFC #SuperFriday

@strnagsl - Can anyone even replace Jabik as a motivator for Bikarish? I think Danzik Hoboson isn't as good as him in terms of motivating the players but hopefully our Bikarish can get a win tonight. Go Bikarish! Go Sanna Ignatov! #RDIBKH #SuperFriday


8.29pm: The teams are coming back out of the tunnel. We should start at around 8.32pm for the majority of the matches?

8.31pm: Real Didari vs Bikarish kicks off first, followed by Sochra Mudra FC vs Offsdi Dalas. In the Super League, it is Kisha Agureo FC vs Offsdi Galaxy that started first.

8.33pm: No sign of the teams here at the Dalaris State Stadium, something a bit weird considering their expected start time is 8.35pm by the 15 minutes rule. But everywhere else, teams have made their necessary half-time substitutions and started. Not many key substitutions anyway, so we can skip them.

8.35pm: The teams are coming out of the tunnel in the Dalaris State Stadium. That is rather late, considering the one at the Theatre of Light is already 4 minutes in. Most matches are around 4 minutes into the second half, and therefore this match is going to end late. Sources on the ground have said that one of the ball boys have fainted, which was the reason for the delay.

8.37pm: We have confirmed that report and it turns out to be true. The match would have a delayed restart, so our attention should turn towards other matches.

8.38pm: GOAL! Matt Barney nets in the 4th goal for the side, as FC United of Mancodas restores their 4 goal lead. Just as I said at the start, Matt Barney performed quite well in his first season here, and the manner this goal was scored proved just that.

8.40pm: GOAL! Fiskadaha FC 2-0 Forte Agureo FC. Gisiik Moonar took the direct free kick, and just promptly slots it home from 30 yards past a keeper who couldn't reach the ball.

8.41pm: After a long delay, the match at the Dalaris State Stadium resumes. Meanwhile, we are on the 55th minute for all the other matches, and Jote United has conceded a goal against Madaris United in the Super League to make it Jote United 5-1 Madaris United. That match looks to be a high scoring affair at this rate, as Jote United looks to attack even more and score even more goals.

8.46pm: GOAL!Bozhena Shimizu is the scorer here for Jottim FC, as he manages to curve in a nice ball from the side of the field. Jottim FC 2-0 Trimidau Naksa.

8.47pm: GOAL!Alexis Dazin manages to squeeze in yet another goal for Dury FC. Dury FC chose to rotate on a huge number of non-standard youth players, yet it was Dazin who had to score his 38th goal of the season in the league. So it becomes Dury FC 1, Armed Forces FC 0

8.48pm: GOALS!The goals are coming in quick succession, as Basits Gastly scores for Sochra Mudra FC, making it Sochra Mudra FC 1–0 Offsdi Dalas. And meanwhile, Melchiorre Koskinen headed in a goal to help Kistina Galaxy score their 2nd goal, cutting the deficit. It is now Kistina Galaxy 2-4 FC United of Mancodas.

8.52pm: A key substitute here for Dalaris City, as Arnold Shwentin comes on for Kirsti Nieminen. Nieminen is just unable to deal with Mancodas City's defenders rather effectively, causing Dalaris City's attacks to be rather slow. Gasti Hans moves up to the front 3 while Shwentin takes over in center midfield with Daas Taisg. Take note that it is still the 56th minute here while it is the 66th minute everywhere else.

8.54pm: Totalaha 5-2 Kinabitan. Jote United 6-1 Madaris United. Are they competing to see who score the most goals? Really, the goals are coming in fast and furious in the Super League. Cochin FC has got 1 against Pacifica, while Donbester and Hoash Celtic has gotten their 2nd goal of the day. Holhot City seems to have a problem scoring their 4th, but still lead Pacifica in terms of goal difference.

8.55pm: GOAL! Rama Holma gets one back as Derby Holgersson scores for the club. The match between the two relegation threatened clubs is starting to see a reverse, as Rama Holma attempts to muscle back into the game. As long as Rama Holma does not lose, Didari City would be the second team to be direct relegated, and Rama Holma does want that to happen. They have a tricky home match against Kistina Galaxy, while Didari City only plays Trimidau Naksa in their last match. We shall wait and see if Rama Holma can get one more back. For now, Didari City 2, Rama Holma 1 is the score.

8.57pm: Less than 20 minutes to go in most places, and the Super League proves to be more exciting than we thought. Kinabitan has scored one more 5 minutes are conceding one, to keep Totalaha's lead to 2. Offsdi Galaxy finally breaks the deadlock to take a 1-0 lead against Kisha Agureo FC, and Dalaris Sports FC scores their 2nd against Forche United.

8.58pm: GOAL! Not in the Premier League, but in the Super League, where Cochin FC has drawn level against Pacifica! Abraam Walther scores his 2nd goal of the night, after beating defender and captain Patricie Pereira in a 1-on-1, then slotting it past a goalkeeper who was in no position to get the ball. Pacifica 2, Cochin FC 2!

9.01pm: It has been quite a night for many clubs, as many of the matches enter their final 15 minutes (before stoppage time). While some matches are goals galore, others feature very little goals. In fact, Holhot United hasn't scored while their city rivals have scored 3. In the Premier League, there are 2 matches that have remained goalless, with Bikarish and Real Didari unable to be separated. So is Mancodas Athletic FC vs Sarim Potato FC, where a lot of young players are performing really well. Mika Toyotomi-Bariain, the Hinodejin from Sarim Potato FC, and Clara Brivio, the centerback from Mancodas Athletic FC are the two most prominent ones, engaging in tussles throughout the game. Nothing has came out of the game though, but both managers should be happy with a draw based on the performance.

9.03pm: GOAL! Captain Pete Carisa nets in his 41st goal in the league, following a brilliant solo effort that left the defenders with nothing. Dribbling past the defenders in a quick and decisive manner left the opposition unable to react in time, allowing Carisa to reach the box and simply beat the keeper in a 1-on-1. It is Dalaris City 0, Mancodas City 2!

9.04pm: News of Carisa's goal has reached the Theatre of Light, where Trimidau Rukiya is leading 1-0. The away fans are certainly happy that Dalaris City are losing, though they should remember that Dalaris City has 21 minutes plus injury time to fight back.

9.06pm: The full time whistle in the National League 1 has been blown, and PF University has claimed the championship following a huge 5-0 win over Chestervale. They have Doche Bangsa to thank, as Doche Bangsa defeated Red Gikashiar 3-2 after a late winner. Dakahs Nakahi's inability to defeat Bishtas Jaska meant that they could not enter the playoffs. In fact, the position of the clubs in 3rd to 7th did not change over one matchday. The promotion playoff semi-finals will be next week at Libira National Stadium, a one-leg match which goes into stoppage time and penalties.
PF National League 1 - Selected Matchday 46 Results
PF University 5–0 Chestervale
Doche Bangsa 3–2 Red Gikashiar
Gikashiar City FC 5–1 Darimau Hasha
Bishtas Jaska 3–0 Dakahs Nakahi
Kibinas 0–1 Craza Wanderers


9.07pm: Madaris United has netted in another consolation goal against Jote United. With 9 minutes to spare, there seems to be no hope of a comeback, as Jote United are still 4 goals ahead with a 6-2 scoreline. Totalaha, meanwhile, scored a goal 2 minutes back, allowing them to take a 6-3 lead against Kinabitan. Holhot United has also scored, with Orlando Nelson being the saviour. Now they are 1-0 up against Kavalti Rangers.

9.09pm: GOAL! Monesty Erdos left it really late, but Erdos did it to score a goal against Real Didari! This allows Bikarish to go to 75 points, back ahead of Dury FC as things stand. This also means that Jottim FC or Sochra Mudra FC can no longer catch them in the race for a top 4 spot, unless Armed Forces FC or Real Didari manages to fish an equaliser in the next 7 minutes or so.

9.11pm: Dalaris City still remain goalless, and cannot seem to score today. Maybe Mancodas City's defence is giving their 110%, as Dalaris City's chances are all nullified one by one. Many fans are shouting for Dalaris City to get together and find something, but their squad are not that good in depth, and they don't really have more players to come on as super substitutes.

9.12pm: GOAL! With help from captain Alexri Timson, Arnoldo Figueroa has gotten in the second goal for their side. For Figueroa, his performance today has been quite splendid. Giving Mayer the assist in the first half, and now finding the goal himself, he has been one of those players that helped his team achieve a phenomenal finish this season. Regardless if they go on to win the title next week, he would probably be remembered, together with Mayer and captain Timson.

9.14pm: GOAL! That is really late, as Mika Toyotomi-Bariain pulls off a bicycle kick after getting the corner from Dargis Walshor. Walshor delivered the ball into the box, to find Toyotomi-Bariain, and there you go. Mancodas Athletic FC 0, Sarim Potato FC 1

9.15pm: HAT-TRICK! Matt Barney gets the matchball as he scores his 3rd goal of the night against Kavalti River FC. As I said at the start of the match, his performance for the first season has been fantastic. Probably is the way Xannerians play football, but he has adapted to the fast-paced football here in Poafmersia really well, making a huge contribution to the club. FC United of Mancodas getting to top 8 from promotion is no fluke, and one of the key contributors would be Barney here. Kavalti River FC 2–5 FC United of Mancodas

9.16pm: With only injury time to play for, clubs are starting to panic. But the injury times given are very generous. Fiskadaha FC gets 4 minutes against Forte Agureo FC, while Offsdi Dalas gets 5 minutes to find an equaliser against Sochra Mudra FC.

9.17pm: GOALS! Injury times, as we said, are times where magic happens. Offsdi Dalas' Xochipilli Ognyanov was the first one, scoring that equaliser against Sochra Mudra FC. Narkissos Francis is another one, scoring the consolation for his club Trimidau Naksa against Jottim FC. Christin Draper sealed the game for Didari City, as they romp to a 3-1 victory against Rama Holma. That goal was the final goal of the match, as the referee blew the final whistle shortly after the restart.

9.18pm: We forgot to tell you that Pacifica found their late winner, while Jote United scored their 7th goal of the night. Crazy? Yes. But the attention should still remain on the biggest match of the night, where Dalaris City are pressing forward while Mancodas City is digging deep to defend. Will Dalaris City fish out a goal? Possible, but time is racing against them as they have 8 minutes to spare.

9.19pm: GOAL! Simply unbelievable, as Nelle Basurto scores a goal for Fiskadaha FC in the dying stages of the match. With the referee looking at his watch, the home side made one final attack, as Gisiik Moonar made a pass to Forzu-Ralox Kal, and Kal simply passed it across the field to find Basurto. Fiskadaha FC 3, Forte Agureo FC 0 it shall be.

9.22pm: Super League Matchday 37 is over, and so is Premier League Matchday 37. Well except a big one in Dalaris. The promotion race in the Super League has been narrowed down to 3 teams chasing 2 spots, with Pacifica lagging behind Holhot City on goal difference, while Holhot United is 3 points ahead of both teams. Pacifica would hope at least one of the Holhot teams lose, as that would allow them to promote with a win (a draw suffices if it is Holhot City that loses). If not, they need to make up a 7 GD margin on Holhot City, which looks really impossible in reality.

9.26pm: 3 minutes of added time here at the Dalaris State Stadium. Nothing seems to be working, with Mansi Kandero absolutely stuck. He made all the substitutions they had, but it is all too little and too late.

9.29pm: BEEP BEEP BEEP! That is the end of Super Friday, and here are the final results.
PFFA Premier League - Matchday 37
Jottim FC 2–1 Trimidau Naksa
Fiskadaha FC 3–0 Forte Agureo FC

In the Premier League, Dalaris City and Trimidau Rukiya would both enter the FFI LdV, but it is difficult to tell who wins the title. Dalaris City lags behind Trimidau Rukiya by a margin of 1 GD, which is super close. Bikarish and Dury FC round up the top 4 spots, but they still have to compete for 3rd place, which gives them entry into the FFI TdC. At the bottom, we will wait one more matchday to see who is relegated and who enters the playoffs.

Season 2 Results (Part 7)

Postby PotatoFarmers » Sun Jul 12, 2020 6:07 am

The results below are presented in chronological order, based on the Poafmersian calendar. The results include that from all domestic leagues/cups, as well as the IFCF and FFI club competition.

PFFA Premier League - Matchday 38
Trimidau Naksa 3–2 Didari City
Rama Holma 0–5 Kistina Galaxy
Trimidau Rukiya 1–1 Sochra Mudra FC
Offsdi Dalas 1–1 Kavalti River FC
FC United of Mancodas 0–3 Dalaris City
Mancodas City 3–5 Dury FC
Armed Forces FC 1–3 Real Didari
Bikarish 1–2 Mancodas Athletic FC
Sarim Potato FC 0–1 Fiskadaha FC
Forte Agureo FC 0–5 Jottim FC

Honestly, with the excitement of the Matchday 37 behind it, the results were sort of anti-climatic. Mancodas City defeated Dalaris City last matchday, but couldn’t get a win past Dury FC. Combined with Bikarish’s shock loss to Mancodas Athletic FC, that meant that Dury FC would enter the FFI TdC instead of Bikarish. Dalaris City dispatched FC United of Mancodas 3-0, while Trimidau Rukiya drew 1-1 with Sochra Mudra FC, allowing Dalaris City to regain top spot and clinch the title. Didari City couldn’t bank on their previous victory against Rama Holma, falling 3-2 against Trimidau Naksa after conceding a really late goal. Rama Holma exploded with a 0-5 trashing by Kistina Galaxy, consigning them to the final round of the relegation playoff. A loss for Forte Agureo FC meant that they were consigned to playing the preliminary round of the relegation playoff against Offsdi Dalas.


PFFA Super League - Matchday 38
Kinabitan 2–3 Kavalti Rangers
Holhot United 3–0 Kisha Agureo FC
Offsdi Galaxy 2–0 Jote United
Madaris United 0–8 Donbester
Paishi-jak City 1–2 Pacifica
Cochin FC 5–0 Notarsihan FC
Holhot City 5–0 Madaris Country
Hoash Celtic 4–4 Honas FC
Derby United 2–0 Forche United
Dalaris Sports FC 2–4 Totalaha

The Super League matches were held one day before the Premier League matches, and boy - it was exciting. Averaging 4.7 goals per game, there were big trashings from teams in the promotion race. Holhot City routed relegated Madaris Country 5-0, while Cochin FC did the same scoreline on Notarsihan FC. But the biggest trashing came in Madaris, where Donbester scored 8 past a sorry Madaris United. Holhot United took a 3-0 win over Kisha Agureo FC to secure promotion, and both Holhot sides will enter the Premier League hand in hand. Pacifica’s fans would be one of the saddest, since they lost out on a promotion spot on goal difference. For them, guess they have to try next year.


FA Cup Finals: Dury FC 1-0 Real Didari
This was not even a challenge for Dury FC. Having failed to obtain the Premier League title, which they were expected to win at the start of the season. Against Real Didari, they fielded a really strong squad, and the opposition merely went full defensive and did all the counterattacks. In the end, Dury FC relied on a late goal from Alexis Dazin to win the match and the title, earning themselves the entry to the Cup Winners' Cup.


Semifinals
Doche Bangsa (3) 0–0 Kibinas (6) (0–0 AET) (4–1 pen.)
Gikashiar City FC (4) 3–3 Bishtas Jaska (5) (3–3 AET) (4–3 pen.)

Finals
Doche Bangsa (3) 2–3 Gikashiar City FC (4)

Gikashiar City FC wins the playoff finals and is promoted.


Preliminary Round
Forte Agureo FC 0–4 Offsdi Dalas

Finals
Forte Agureo FC 3–0 Rama Holma

As a consequence of losing the finals, Rama Holma will be relegated to the Super League.

The Gothanita Isles Football Season 24 (IFCF3)

Postby The Gothanita Isles » Thu Jul 23, 2020 8:30 am

Gothanitan Football League enters 24th season, continues the 4 nation 2 league system.
The Gothanitan Isles Football Confederation (GIFC), being the overall in charge of the league has confirmed the details of the 24th season of the Gothanitan Football League (GFL). The 24th GFL continues to be split into the Otkdor League (Otksarin and North Handoria) and the Liga Hallirina (South Jeolerina and Hallikshire) for the senior league, with an 12-team playoffs. Similarly, the 24th GFL will be split into Otkdor U21 League and Liga Hallirina 2, the Under-21 versions of both leagues.
The 24th season of the GFL will also be the first time where the GFL will send teams into regional competitions. The GIFC has been in talks with the International Federation of Club Football (IFCF) with regards to the entry rules for the GFL. Currently, teams represent their respective states' football association, namely the Football Association of North Handorian (FANH); the Otksarin Football Association (OFA); the Hallikshiran Federation of Football (HFF); and the Football Federation of South Jeolerina (FFSJ). This will still occur for the respective regional competitions; however this will not apply for the IFCF club competitions.

GFL entry rules into regional leagues, effective Season 24
1. IFCF
a. For the purposes of IFCF-sanctioned competitions, the GFL will sent teams as 1 association, under the control of the GIFC. The association would be looking to utilise the trigramme GTI, representing The Gothanita Isles, for the IFCF competitions.
b. The winner of the GFL, defined as the winner of the final playoffs between the 2 leagues, will represent the GIFC in the IFCF Champions' League.
c. Teams ranked 2nd to 4th will qualify for the IFCF Challengers' Cup. This will be defined as all teams in the semifinals of the playoffs, excluding the winner as defined in rule 1b.
d. The winner of the Royal Gothanita Isles Cup qualifies for the IFCF Cup Winners' Cup.
e. The winners of the Otkdor League Division 2 and the 2-Liga Hallirina, the 2nd divisions of the Otkdor League and Liga Hallirina respectively, will enter the IFCF Liga B Champions Trophy. The runners-up of both competition will face off in a single-leg match on neutral grounds to decide who gets the 3rd spot.
f. The winner of the Oktdor U21 league and the Liga Hallirina B will face off in a single-leg match to decide who gets the entry ticket into the IFCF Rising Stars Cup.
g. If a team enters the IFCF Champions' League group stage, and they do not have a corresponding youth team, GIFC will make a separate decision on the matter.

2. AOCL, CdC
a. For purposes of the AOCL, the GFL will send teams as part of the North Handoria (NHA) association. Only teams under the management of the FANH are eligible for the AOCL.
b. For purposes of the CdC, the GFL will send teams as part of the South Jeolerina (SJR) association. Only teams under the management of the FFSJ are eligible for the CdC.
c. Among eligible teams, the team who progresses the furthest in the playoffs will represent NHA and SJR in the AOCL and the CdC respectively.
d. If multiple eligible teams reach the furthest stage in the playoffs, the team with the best league placing will be the representative.
e. If none of the eligible teams reach the playoffs, the highest ranked team in the normal league season will be the representative.

3. CEdC, CMFA, FFI
a. For purposes of the CEdC, the GFL will send teams as part of the Hallikshire (HKR) association. Only teams under the management of the HFF are eligible for the CEdC.
b. For purposes of the CMFA Champions League and FFI competitions, the GFL will send teams as part of the Otksarin (OKN) association. Only teams under the management of OFA are eligible for the competitions.
c. The top 2 HKR teams in the normal league season will represent HKR in the CEdC.
d. The top 2 OKN teams in the normal league season will represent OKN in the FFI Liga dos Vencedores, while the 3rd OKN team in normal league season will represent OKN in the FFI Taça das Confederações.
e. The top 4 OKN teams in the normal league season will represent OKN in the CMFA Champions League.
f. In the case where a team qualifies for the FFI Liga dos Vencedores and is the defending champion, spot allocations can be shifted down as such.


Apart from that, the 24th season continues to be of the same format as implemented in the 12th season (for the senior competition) and the 15th season (for the U21 competition) respectively. 14 teams will be in the top division of the Otkdor League and the Liga Hallirina, while 12 teams will be in the second division of both leagues respectively. The top 6 teams of the top division enter the playoffs. Firstly, the 3rd place of the respective leagues will play against the 6th place of the same league, while the 4th place will play with 5th place. After that, re-ranking the surviving teams from the Prelim Round, as well as the top 2 teams of each league who got a bye into the Quarterfinals, we follow the bracket as shown below. (OT# represents Otkdor League teams, HL# represnts Liga Hallirina teams) Note that all matches have 2-legs, with the lower-ranked team playing at home first. For the finals, if both teams achieved the same rank during the league season, a coin toss will be used to decide the order.

Promotion and relegation for the senior leagues remain the same, with the 14th place of division 1 relegated, the 1st place of division 2 promoted, and that the 13th place of division 1 will play the 2nd place of division 2 in a 2-leg promotion/relegation playoff, with the team from division 1 playing at home last.

On the other hand, the U21 leagues will continue to be a single league, without promotion or relegation. The champions of the Oktdor U21 league and the Liga Hallirina B will face off in a single-leg match (grounds to be decided) to decide who gets the entry ticket into the IFCF Rising Stars Cup, and be crowned overall champions.
