Galacticos Index
Long Longlist


Who will be the next Adnan Szalai, Tájö Çíânflöné, or Kris Campbell? Who is better now than Simeone used to be? Was it better in the old days?

Boldsport Magazine, proud purveyor of shoddy sports journalism since about last April, brings you the fourth edition of the global phenomenon of the Boldsports Sports Writers Awards for the greatest football players in the universe: The Galacticos Index.

Flush with money from the media rights to the last World Cup, and seemingly upgrading their business plan - if not their... modest... offices at Bod's House in Argon Lane - the Boldsport commercial arm recently stunned the world by jumping into bed with the bigwigs of the UICA to sponsor the Youth Cup for the next seven - SEVEN - cycles; a remarkable increase in the multiversal profile of the imprint. Whatever next? Well, no doubt there will be more exciting announcements along the way. Oh and look, here's one now:

To celebrate the link with the UICA Youth Cup, Boldsport is to present a new prize within the Galacticos awards - along with senior and young player awards, the sportswriters of the magazine will scour the academies and training grounds of the multiverse (or get their mates to when they go on holiday) to unearth the most promising young starlets of the world with the Galactico Junior Award. The award looks set to inflate the transfer market in young players to new and more preposterous heights, which is great news for sellers, great news for the parents and financial advisers of these young heroes, bad news for buyers and no pressure at all, nonono, for the kids who are labelled the next Buschak Dassuna, Mickie Pichowski, Torianne Heroux, Jane Vander Rox, Bálint Sebes or Freddy Adu. Err - who?

Deciding to maximise the drama of the awards - because optics - the Galacticos Index will begin with a private soirée for some of the most renowned sports journalists from around the multiverse, who will be invited to join us for the announcement of the 'long' list, which will occur in a fortnight Bonesea time [OOC - tomorrow] at the famous Grand Polarian hotel on Herring Island just north of the capital, scene of an enormous bun fight two cycles ago that led to a ban on visiting national delegations.

The announcement of the 'long list' will be followed by a the Boldsport Youth Awards in a month [OOC - Monday] in which we will celebrate the newly-crowned Junior Galactico, for the under-19 age group, as well as release the short list for the Young Player of the Multiverse, for the under-21 age group. The Boldsport Youth Awards will take place at the headquarters of the Fellowship of The Greasy Churn - that's the Bonesea FA to you and me - and will be attended by journalists, top coaches linked to the youth game and probably a few scouts and agents too, along with the Junior Galactico nominees and their proud parents who will be joyfully counting the future moulah they imagine their progeny will earn them.

Finally, the full event, a free-for-all with anyone and everyone invited, and perhaps a special guest announcement to come, will run in seven weeks time by the Bonesea Symmetrical Calendar [OOC - Tuesday]; the event will be a highly drawn-out and over-the-top showbiz do where we will announce the short list for the player of the multiverse, the team of the multiverse, the winner of the young player of the multiverse, and finally, the Galacticos Index Player of The Multiverse, by which time you probably won't even care.

Just to whet everyone's appetite here is another announcement - of the 80-player longlong list, having preposterously scouted over 433 players (434) across the wide multiverse to find the best performers of the last UICA cycle, and deciding against publishing that superlong list because there are bound to be terrible errors of judgement on them. Like last time when we announced we were scouting a player from Cassandra City in Cosumar who turned out to be the one-legged stadium caretaker that had recently been disciplined for running a poker club in the laundry room. The credibility of the awards was rightly questioned by a number of senior leagues as a result. This time we hope to eliminate the non-footballers by having watched them all, and remain quietly confident that this longlong list is a complete list of the eighty-ish best-ish players in the whole wide multiverse. You will note all three previous winners of the award have made the longlong list again.

Players listed in order of nationality.

Galacticos Index
Longlist


Who will be the next Debbie Dallas, Tegan Nash, or Courtney Ferguson?

Boldsport Magazine welcomes a host of world class sports journalists and assorted hacks to the Royal Polarian Hotel on Herring Island, for the announcement of the long list of the Galacticos Index player of the multiverse awards. 434 scouted players were whittled down to 79 for the longlong list, and now, we skim off a healthy crop of 51 superstars who just aren't super enough for a final list of 28. Last cycle's greatest player Kris Campbell is still in the running but both Adnan Szalai and Tájö Çíânflöné, the first two winners of the prestigous - if controversial and oft disputed - award are on the wrong side of the cut this time around, and probably agree with the nay-sayers that it's all a bunch of meaningless claptrap from a bunch of inexperienced fly-be-night scrivenors who have barely left their desk, let alone gone out in the world and watched a game of football on a cold, wet Tuesday night in Torgos.

Well, you fine journalists here in the Timo suite of the Royal Polarian, under the watchful eye of the manager Olaf Bang and members of the Bonesea Constabulary, can debate the wheres and whyfors of the selection, and perhaps even write a post about it if you have any lead left in your pencils. Without further ado then, the long list for the Fourth Galacticos Index awards for the Boldsport Sports Writers Player of The Multiverse is as follows:

Cosumarites, Eurans and Vilitans dominate the list although there is quite a spread overall and includes the finest from as far afield as Apox, Drawkland, and Mercedini: when you look at the club list of course, as you might expect, it is invariably the present-day giants of the UICA that have a monopoly over the stars of today. The rise and rise of Real Azuris and the almost untouchable dominance of the two Euran giants Revolutionaries and Ulsa top a list of pure footballing royalty in club terms. And Port Sebastian.

Join us at Goat's Bluff on Threemilestone Island, the home of the Fellowship of The Greasy Churn - that's the Bonesea FA to you and me - in a fortnight's time [OOC: tomorrow] for the Boldsport Youth Awards in which we will give the prize for the best junior player coming through the ranks of our multiversal academies, and announce the shortlist for the Galacticos Young Player of the Multiverse.

For all the journalists in the room who are not on the Jeremy Jaffacake Thirteen Step Plan, the bar is now open.


Galacticos Index
Junior Award


Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Who will be the next Will Grizzly, Temi Temi Cram or Cleto Mata*?

Boldsport Magazine welcomes a host of world class coaches and assorted club officials to the headquarters of the Fellowship of The Greasy Churn - that's the Bonesea FA to you and me - at Goat's Bluff on Threemilestone, the former World Cup Island from WC'78. We welcome you here today for a new initiative in the Galacticos Index.

To celebrate the link with the UICA Youth Cup, Boldsport presents a new prize - along with senior and young player awards, the sportswriters of the magazine have scoured the academies and training grounds of the multiverse (or got their mates to when they were on holiday) to unearth the most promising young starlets of the world with the Galactico Junior Award. The award looks set to inflate the transfer market in young players to new and ever more preposterous heights, which is great news for sellers, great news for the parents and financial advisers of these young heroes, bad news for buyers and no pressure at all, nonono, for the kids who are labelled the next Buschak Dassuna, Mickie Pichowski, Torianne Heroux, Jane Vander Rox, Bálint Sebes or Freddy Adu. Err - who?

Alright, alright, I know I did that joke on Saturday. It's a good one, what can I say? Anyone wants to bite on that name list, meet me in the IDSD after.

Without further ado, please allow us to present the final shortlist of fifteen young men, women and other anthropods who may, in time, become the greatest fifteen players in the multiverse, for whom the likes of Ulsa, 1830 Cathair, Handon United and Alpolamets Pakhelemarkaa will pay a queen's ransom.

For many of you here this will be the first time you have ever heard of this lot, but believe me, it won't be the last.

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

That's an awful lot of young talent right there, allegedly the fifteen best players in the multiverse you've never heard of. And the Tidesson family grab a healthy 20% of the shortlist for themselves; Mr & Mrs Tidesson must be counting imaginary money like it's falling off trees right now. And who can blame them? How much would each of these be worth on today's market? Well, I've been studying recent transfer activity, and the Gelderfolk at Lexington Victory parted with a cool five mill for Ventura Bay's 16-year old Cenian centre midfielder Avi Renning. Meanwhile Schottic Isaiah Vaught, 18, went to Whitehaven Triumph in Ceni for six. Now these boys are good, don't get me wrong - but where are they on this list? I fancy any of these wonderkids now to be worth 50% more than the market high, so don't expect less than nine million spondula for any one of these.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Well there's Ezra, talking up the market again. Now, before we proceed to the prizegiving, it is my pleasure to first announce the shortlist for the Young Player of The Multiverse. This is for the under-21 category of the main prize, and regular attendees of the Galacticos over the years will know this prize has been entirely dominated by Audioslavs, with Roddy Fraser, Rodger Mariezkurrena and Javi Esqueda taking the first three awards. And Javi might just do it again... the shortlist for the Young Player of The Multiverse award is as follows:

In order of nationality:

Hakki Ojala ANG A 21 Real Azuris COS
Bryton Menheniot APX DMC 18 Cazadores Cathair AUD
Javi Esqueda AUD DRL 20 AC Izotz Zubia AUD
Bryger Tidesson COS A 19 Real Azuris COS
Rhys Griffiths EUR AM 20 Revolutionaries EUR
Jayden Fox EUR LB 19 Handon United SCT
Lüí Wçêíl FFD M 20 Mâ Âlâmëómë FFD
Louis Hordern SCT RB 20 Handon United SCT
Dilon Bànach SCT CM 20 Handon United SCT


And indeed Javi Esqueda will hope to take the title for a second season running, but he's got some stiff competition including a familiar name in there as the Tidesson family have yet more nominations to celebrate thanks to elder son Bryger. What a dynasty this lot are turning out to be. And there's more of them, so I'm told. Ezra, what do you make of this list?

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

Nine of the finest young footballers ever to grace the parks of the multiverse, I should say with no hint of overstatement, and when you think the young Bojik Artem Delacruz went to Gallian Telecom for an entirely preposterous twenty-five million groats - let's face it, he's a nice lad, handy for a twenty-year old, but he wouldn't be polishing the boots of these fellas - you have to think these will be fifty percent more again - you'll be looking at thirty-seven million and some change to sign any one of these, in my opinion. And before you shoot the messenger, I'm only telling you what the market dictates.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Thank you Ezra, I knew I could rely on you for a bit of light-hearted fantasy. The prize for the young player of the multiverse will be awarded in three weeks [OOC: tomorrow] at the main Galactico Awards, so stay tuned for that.

But now, it is time to announce the winner of the Boldsport Galactico Junior Award for the finest youth player in the entirety of existence - no small claim - beginning with honourable mentions for the two best runners-up.


.
.
Alfred Tidesson (Real Azuris, Cosumar)


Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

The second-eldest of the five Tidesson siblings, Alfred looks the most likely to join Bryger in the first team of the #3 UICA club next season. Though a year younger, he's a bigger, stockier lad than Bryger and eventually found his true calling as an intimidator in central defense (despite stubbornly trying to match his brother in pace and skill for much of his youth) who has drawn on a fiercely competitive nature to battle well above his age groups.


.
.
Chimera Moxham (AFC Treason, Nephara)


Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

Tall, athletic, self-assured and two-footed, Moxham is set to be sent out on loan to Blau-Weiss Pallstadt to prove herself. Moxham's of the opinion that false modesty is the refuge of the mediocre - she knows she's good.

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

Well, look at these two - already set to become a brace of the finest footballers of their generation, if you want to sign these fine young juniors you're talking forty-five million clams - each - for two of the prodigies of our time. Good luck landing these though - I can't see Azuris or Treason parting with them for any money in the world - unless they've mistakenly put a release clause in their contracts (my PA is working on finding that out).

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

And so to the first winner of the Boldsport Galactico Junior Award, please give a rousing hand to:


.
.
Réka Szôllôssi (Stein-los Turkish, Pasarga)


Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

A pacy striker with a calm demeanor that belies her age, affording her the patience needed to be a rotation playing for Turkish first team, Réka has impressed scouts from all over the world and you can practically see the Euran teams circling for her signature. Many predict the rise in a new generation of Pasargan power, and this young woman will undoubtedly be banging in the goals to achieve it. Watch out for her in World Cups 80, 81, and 82. At least.

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

Undoubtedly one of the pantheon of greats of the future - I'm talking Di Bradini, Belmore, Banda - maybe even the first three minutes of Val Kylx. That's what we are talking about here. So you can look at another twenty percent on the runners-up. You'll be forking out fifty-four million squid or more for this racehorse. And for my money, she'd be worth every penny. I'm off backstage right now to see if I can sign these fifteen thoroughbreds to my stable, wish me luck Izzy...

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Thank you to my guests Kirtland Straw and Ezra Carp with their interesting if probably unreliable insights into the world of future football. It only remains for me to congratulate the winner on an admirable rise to the top of the youth game, and to warn us all not to forget where we heard the name first. We will see you all back here in three weeks [OOC: tomorrow] for the presentation of the final awards for this cycle's Galacticos Index.




*like, who?


Galacticos Index
Shortlist


Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Who will be the next John Spartan, Arturo Hudson-Blake or Magnus Svoboda?

Boldsport Magazine, proud purveyor of shoddy sports journalism since about last April, welcomes you to Goat's Bluff, the headquarters of the Fellowship of The Greasy Churn and the fourth cyclical presentation of the global phenomenon that is the Boldsport Sports Writers Awards for the greatest football players in the universe: The Galacticos Index.

And speaking of John Spartan, please welcome to the stage our special guest for the evening... it's only John Spartan!

(No cameras please)

John Spartan, Quite Good Footballer of Eura, says:

Thank you Izzy and the people of Boldsport Magazine for -

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, whispers:

{sorry John Spartan, could you say that in red please, that's part of our sponsorship package tonight}

John Spartan, Quite Good Footballer of Eura, says:

Thank you Izzy and the people of Boldsport Magazine for inviting me here tonight, it is my tremendous priviledge to be involved in this, um, prestigious event. And may I just say -

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Really, thank you John Spartan, for agreeing to come - you've definitely turned the classometer up a notch or two by your very presence in the room, and I'm delighted you'll be adding your considerable knowledge to our observations this evening, balancing the opinions of our regular guests Kirtland Straw and Ezra Carp with some actual facts and insider knowledge. But first some housekeeping. We will begin with presenting the short list for the Galacticos Index Boldsport Writer's Player of The Multiverse Award, comprising the seven finest footballers of the last season/year/cycle from around the eleven corners of the world(s); and this will be followed by what we are provisionally calling the John Spartan Team Of The Cycle - the best eleven players and a bunch of useful subs; we will then announce the winner of the Galacticos Young Player of the Cycle and finish of course with the big one, the Player of The Multiverse. It's a long night so let's get stuck straight in, to announce the shortlist for the main award. But first, a reminder of the long list, which we published six weeks ago:

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

This would be the dream squad, wouldn't it? Just look at the quality here. There isn't a keeper in the shortlist this time though, so it would still need a bit of tweaking - Guayabaleni Abraham Terrazas (twice), Farfadillo Calegro Metz, Euro Jeffrey Douglas and Schotto Jeremy McNott have all made the long list in previous editions, but this year the keepers seem to have had a lean season, according to the panel. Now, I've been looking at the transfer market and I think you'd be paying top dollar for this bunch - around 25% above the high prices in the last window; the Taeshanis were flashing the cash again with Laketown Rangers - who? - spilling 45 million duckets for Ceni Quintrell Lidgely - I mean... - so by that measure, these folks will surely set you back a cool 56 million and a bit

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Whittling 434 players down to 79, slashing fifty one stars off to leave twenty-eight superstars, we now lose a further twenty-one players who would still surely grace any team in the UICA Champions Cup Knockout phase. But there can be only seven on a shortlist - approximately speaking - and our seven, chosen by the Boldsport Magazine staff writers, will be revealed shortly.

But first, let's move on to the fourth Boldsport Young Player of the Cycle, sponsored by NomNom world famous confectioners - because sometimes, sour sugar is good for you. With a number of young players competing right at the top of the sport already, this was a difficult and tightly-contested affair. First we should remind ourselves of the shortlist, which in due order is:


In order of nationality:

Hakki Ojala ANG A 21 Real Azuris COS
Bryton Menheniot APX DMC 18 Cazadores Cathair AUD
Javi Esqueda AUD DRL 20 AC Izotz Zubia AUD

John Spartan, Quite Good Footballer of Eura, says:

Ah, there you go! Look at our fine lads about to take over the world...

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

And the winner of a lifetimes’ supply of sugar toucans and chocolate toads is…


.
.Bryger Tidesson (COS)
Right Midfielder, Real Azuris


John Spartan, Quite Good Footballer of Eura, says:

Or not.

Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

Ever since he scored in the Champions' Cup at age 16 and started the Cygnus Cup Final at 17, people have been certain of Bryger's destined greatness. With his teenage years now behind him, Tidesson is now starting to fulfill that destiny. An everyday starter for the domestic champions last season, he put up 16 goals and 9 assists en route to HL Player Of The Year honors. Quite likely the first of many such awards. He has everything you want in a winger. He's fearless, creative, technically and physically gifted and puts in effort defensively (even if a tad thin still). The Tidesson train is taking off and , if it continues to accelerate at this rate, he might have be one of the world class superstars for the next decade.

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

I said you'd be looking at thirty-seven million honk for anyone on that young shortlist, but for this fella? Forget it - 25% again: Ulsa, Revolutionaries - if you're listening, (or anyone in Taeshan), get your extra wide cheque books out - this one has to be worth forty-six million scratch minimum.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Moving quickly on before we get complaints from the Azuris about selling their team from under them, I would respectfully request the guests at the Esportivan Championships and Koana Islands tables to shut the fibula up a minute and let me get these blasted awards done without further interruption. Ahem.

Congratulations to Bryger Tidesson after a magnificent season, who breaks the stranglehold on this title held by Audioslavs for the last three seasons and joins the likes of Roddy Fraser and Javi Esqueda as 'legends of the future'.

Up next, the, err, John Spartan Team of The Cycle is as follows:


Image
Substitutes: Gethin Quill, Sandra Sybill, Oscar Coltrane, Mârtin Básá, Paul Doig, Romill Valgard and Kel Koromin.

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

For that Galactico XI? We’d be talking astronomical prices, Izzy. Every one of those players is going to fetch a ridiculous fee - if some club is going to spend big, I’d want to be in there with my stable of players, for sure. Anyway, I think prices for the band of eleven would go something like 25% on the top dollar price; you’re looking 70 million readies minimum for any of these eleven, I’m sure of it. That's before they make the shortlist - then watch the prices rise...

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Moving now to the main prize, I am delighted to announce the shortlist for the Boldsport Sports Writers Awards for the greatest football players in the universe: The Galacticos Index final seven is as follows:


in alphabetical order

Cavuna Aquafek VIL F Turoki Tide VIL
Andrew Arrowsword CEN A Real Azuris COS
JK Cottle BSE CB Handon United SCT
Ragnar Targaryen COS ST CA Paulinthal PAS
Bryger Tidesson COS A Real Azuris COS
Polaox Torerun VIL M Turoki Tide VIL
Kurt Wolff COS D Real Azuris COS


Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

The locals will be delighted that for the first time a Bonesman has made the shortlist with our very own Jonas Keylime Cottle, JK, national team captain and Handon United talisman, in amongst a fine short list of greatness. Cosumarites dominate the list this time around with three of the seven, but the Euran individual domination looks over with Kris Campbell forced to hand over the crown to a new champion. Andrew Arrowsword makes an historic return, having found his way onto the very first shortlist at the tender age of 18.

John Spartan, Quite Good Footballer of Eura, says:

But... no Eurans? What kind of award ceremony is this?

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Yes but we've got you babe - which makes it kind of priceless...

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

Difficult to pick a winner from this fine stable and it will be difficult to separate them from their club stables too - inflation for these seven on the Galacticos Shortlist means we’ll be talking silly money here - 25% on the astronomical prices we were talking about before. Don’t expect to land any of these diamonds for less than 87 million nicker.”


It was at this point someone flicked a switch on the main fuse box and plunged Goat's Bluff into darkness. In the ensuing chaos, someone pickpocketed John Spartan and found an empty wallet with a card that had Izzy Worthette's private mobile number on it. There were several complaints of groping and grabbing and - get this - facelicking in the dark, with strong suspicions that the issues were principally originating from the SuLSu tAblE, while the Clovellans had a traumatic flashback and hid under their table wailing piteously.

One might consider all this a bad thing, but one might also enjoy the dramatic pause close to the climax of the narrative... we will find out tomorrow, won't we?


Galacticos Index
Final Announcements


After an interminable period of darkness and chaos when the electrics were shut off at Goat's Bluff, the show is finally up and running again, but many of the attendees have already got the monorail back to the city, having decided the drama is more overdone than a beef metaphor sandwich at the Poet's BBQ Shack in Pandeaemonium.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Who will be the next James Tarpy, Jahirii Tai’Seri or William Silva Jerônimo?

Boldsport Magazine, proud purveyor of shoddy sports journalism since about last April, apologises for the technical issues here at Goat's Bluff, the headquarters of the Fellowship of The Greasy Churn, which has so far dogged the fourth cyclical presentation of the global phenomenon that is the Boldsport Sports Writers Awards for the greatest football players in the universe: The Galacticos Index.

I'd like to thank our special guest John Spartan, who unfortunately had to leave following the unplanned delay due to other commitments, but I bumped into him in the bathrooms not long ago under the emergency lighting and he assured me he had a wonderful time and will be back next cycle for more of the same.

Well, I see there are only a few of you left in the room while John Hapley and the Tomurans, having got bored of waiting, are being ejected as we speak for interrupting the glacial flow of the presentation night. Hush hush Micah Strob, let me finish! Now, where was I? Ah yes, the ultimate prize - the Galacticos Index Boldsport Sports Writer's Award for the Player of The Multiverse. Four hundred and thirty four scouted players became seventy-nine, fifty-one were rejected to become twenty-eight, who were wittled down to a short list of seven.

These are probably the seven best club players in the last UICA cycle, bar none. According to us, anyway. Let's remind ourselves of these awesome churners (age approximately correct for last UICA season):


Cavuna Aquafek (VIL)
Forward, TUROKI TIDE; age 29. Globe Cup winner; former World Cup winner.

Andrew Arrowsword (CEN)
Striker, REAL AZURIS; age about 22-ish. Cygnus Cup winner.

JK Cottle (BSE)
Centreback, HANDON UNITED; age approx 30-36. Former Independents Cup & Cup of Harmony winner.

Ragnar Targaryen (COS)
Striker, CA PAULINTHAL; age 26. He's quite good you know.

Bryger Tidesson (COS)
Right Attacking Midfielder, REAL AZURIS; age 20. Cygnus Cup winner; Young Player of the Multiverse.

Polaox Torerun (VIL)
Midfield, TUROKI TIDE; age 24. Globe Cup winner; former World Cup winner.

Kurt Wolff (COS)
Defender REAL AZURIS; age 23. Cygnus Cup winner; former Champions Cup winner.


Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

As I said before the power cut,

Difficult to pick a winner from this fine stable and it will be difficult to separate them from their club stables too - inflation for these seven on the Galacticos Shortlist means we’ll be talking silly money here - 25% on the astronomical prices we were talking about before. Don’t expect to land any of these diamonds for less than 87 million nicker.

I stand by that, despite someone trying to tap me up for our man JK Cottle during the dark interval - I think it was probably those Taeshani oil-barons, or possibly some oligarch from New Gelderland trying to steal a march on their rivals. Just can't trust 'em to do straight dealing the way us respectable yuman-traders churning agents do.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

And so we come to the final presentation of the evening - the Boldsport Galactico Player of the Cycle, sponsored by legendary dealers in precious objects, The Nomarque Mint of Taxhavn, who are providing the winner of this prestigious award with the equally presitgious prize of NothingTM - for the man, woman or person of indeterminate gender who has everything.

It has been years since the last issue of the Nomarque Mint. And now, at last, they present their finest creation to date: Orbis Vacuume, the latest in a legendary line of Product No.1’s by the world famous Mint. 134.373924 millilitres of purest hard vacuum encased in a 3mm Adamant shell of 65.4mm diameter and an impossible 103.36% purity; nowhere in the entire multiverse will you find such extraordinary refinement, polished to a near frictionless 0.1255mu.

And, naturally, it is beautiful beyond any useful scale of measurement.

But there can be only one Supreme Galactico or player of the cycle (mainly because we could only afford one Orbis Vacuume) and finally we are at the point where we can reveal them. But first, there must be honourable mentions for the close runners-up. In third place…

JK Cottle


Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

A fantastic result for the locals!

When veterans Ike Legge and Shilling Blue retired, JK – that would be Jonas Keylime, apparently – won the starting role and cemented his place as a core player in World Cup ‘77. Part of the powerhouse at the rebuilt Boldclub, JK earned his living in the water working as a diver his role is maintenance of the shallow-water foundations of the many sea turbine wind farms that power the national grid in Bonesea. But after the impressive Cup of Harmony final win over Schottia, he was snapped up by Handon United as one of the first Boney players to move abroad and become a full pro. After proving himself a quality squad player who emerged as one of the top international players in the ‘77 cycle, he progressed further to become the national captain, and despite threats to retire from the international game, has continued to command selection after finding a second youth abroad. At Handon United he is the captain of a top UICA side, proving himself a champion at club level.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

In second place, keeping club and country right at the peaks of world football…


.
.
Polaox Torerun

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

These two have put another 25% on their value, you're moving into the more money than sense bracket here. I doubt anyone can afford it, but if the Taeshanis want to up the price per barrel of their domestic product they might have enough to outlay around 109 million doubloons each for these marquee signings. But do they want to play in the desert? It is a desert in Taeshan, isn't it?

Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

Not sure about that Ezra, I think you're geologically stereotyping there a bit.

Anyway, Polaox Torerun was a quick study under Aquafek's tutalage and the two became nearly inseparable on and off the pitch. While Aquafek tends toward the more attacking play, Torerun is a bit more of a playmaker and also spends some time on the wing. Both Aquafek and Torerun were members of the World Cup 77 winning squad for Vilita as well as the recent triumph for the Turoki Tide in the UICA Super Cup. Torerun led all midfielders in scoring during World Cup 78 Qualifying. Polaox started thair career at Venom Youth Academy, joined Tropicorp FC and earned promotion to Vilitan Declasse. Transferred to Turoki Tide AFC and won Stellar Division Title during Season 49 and Season 52. Torerun would establish themselves as an international star winning the 77th World Cup with the Vilita National Team and then cemented their legacy at the Turoki Tide winning back to back championships during Vilitan League 54 and 55. On the heels of the V-League 55 title the midfield duo of Torerun and Aquafek would be the engine that drove the Turoki Tide to the 66th UICA Globe Cup title.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

Well thanks both for some interesting and questionable insights there, if only John Spartan was still here to give us some actual facts, {call me, John Spartan, call me}.

Finally, ladies, gentlemen, persons of indeterminate gender, gender-irrelevant children (shouldn't you be in bed by now?) and anthropomorphic creatures of the more distant corners of the multiverse - the winner of the fourth Boldsport Galactico Player of the Cycle is:


.
.
Ragnar Targaryen


Kirtland Straw, Football commentator and mine of information, says:

A fine fourth player of the multiverse, among the best I've ever had the joy to comment or commentate on.

Ragnar signed with CA Paulinthal at 17 as a top prospect out of Cosumar's most prestigious private youth residency academy. At 23, he finally broke through as a starter at CAP after six years of simmering development. And what a whirlwind year it was! Solidifying himself as part of a lethal attacking trio alongside Valladares international Abel Brücke, Ragnar helped propel CAP to the Copa de Campeones Final. This season, he was finally able to win the SuperLiga with Paulinthal, stepping up to lead the team with an insane 32 goals and Player Of The Year honors in Pasarga. The phenomenal season, combined with his chemistry with best friend Valgard, makes him a must-include for new Cosumar national manager Alexander Pearce. Targaryen is a proven commodity at the international level. He led the team in goals+assists back in World Cup 77 after all. He has the versatility, stellar first touch and passing ability.

Ezra Carp, Superagent, says:

From unknown wonderkid to superstar, the CAP striker is spearhead of one of the rising powers of UICA football, in the eyes of many observers. Expect Ragnar and CA Paulinthal to reach the very top of the game together, like football's very own symbiotic relationship. There is almost no point putting a price on this man's head, because I can't imagine a time when CAP are mad enough to sell him, or he's mad enough to leave. But if either party does want a get-out, call me, Ezra Carp, Superagent like it says on the auditorium projection, and I'll arrange best price for all - I'm talking ludicrous moolah here - another twenty five percent again on the more money than sense prices of the other two - 136 million bones. That's right. I said it.

Izzy Worthette, Boldsport Editor-in-Chief, says:

You did indeed Ezra, and those still awake are laughing all the way to the bar right now - that won't happen unless Sonoma Center Panthers get taken over by a royal autocrat's airline and used as a marketing vehicle where they accumulate galacticos to show off to their royal cousins and rivals running neighbouring autocratic spendthrift states splashing preposterous amounts of oil-money that's going to dry up inside the next twenty years and cause a major breakdown of society and the bankrupting of insane desert states with no sustainable infrastructure beyond a lot of fancy glass buildings and a cowed population of poverty-striken immigrant slaves. But I digress.

Congratulations Ragnar! A worthy winner.

We’re all off to paint the town a modest shade of green. Any complaints about the final decisions should be directed to spamfolder@boldsport.oi

For those who are interested, there was method to this madness. Taking top 20 UICA teams, top 10 national teams, loads of searches, marking down RP comments, looking at transfers, and coming to some form of RP bonus scoring led to the result you see here. Not very scientific but based on what I could see and read. The lesson for future galacticos: get a move to a top UICA club that does a lot of newswire posts… other nations RPing about your stars counts double… try to win the world cup if you can. The count begins again about now.

Around Again

Bonesligg-590: Your Guide To The Season
By Boldsport chief sports writer, Dub Meadows
stats & numbers crunched by Forgael Whitethrush

Greetings Boldsport fans! Another season is upon us, as they might be all across the multiverse - but they do seem to come thick and fast up here in the cold north. I can hardly keep up.

As we celebrate another successful qualification to the World Cup finals in Ceni and Drawkland, players will be looking to play their way into the thinking of Coach Pythagoras Jones and his national squad for the final tournament, which should lead to some interesting performances in the Bonesligg this season. Small-town champions Oysterhaven Reds defend their first ever title looking to do better than previous incumbants Blue Boys FF, the team from Innstrand who themselves won a shock first title the season before to upset the odds, but then failed miserably to defend it and only just avoided relegation. Reds' Audioslav managers Escobar de Cabanyas and Davin de Valle are surely well equipped to prevent such abject capitulation this time around, but the big boys of SS Skiveness, Florence Boldclub and Athletic St. Leah will have a thing or two to say about watching a title go to a small town in the far north where there's barely enough folks to man a fishing vessel let alone win the Bonesligg. And speaking of the smaller teams, another from the Isle of Skive, home of Oysterhaven Reds, will make their top flight bow this season, with Ifni Andersson's Industrial Amblesea surprising everyone last season to take the Ligg-2 title. They will hope to just avoid dropping straight back down this season, while in the second division some big, big teams are languishing in the doldrums - Gymnasia Scold, Turbine FF Gallowsea, Grasshopper Club and 1.FC Tocklehove will all be competing for a return to the top table. And they will be joined by the mighty Spittalmarine - making their way back from a humiliating four-division relegation on corruption charges, and the seemingly unstoppable all-womens club, Valkyries. That line-up almost makes the second tier look as strong as the first.

Who is prepared for glory? Who is woefully underprepared and looking at the trap door? And who has jumped ship in the hope of better outcomes and more fun next time around?


World Cup Season
Qualification in the bag, Sailors warm up for the World Cup*

After only one defeat and an historic campaign to qualify for their fourth World Cup finals in which, finally, Boneswomen made their debuts in the national team, the Bonesligg faces a big season ahead of the finals with players looking to make the final squad for Pythagoras Jones. Naming a squad of 33 for the qualification cycle, Pythagoras gave debuts to a number of promising youngsters who will hope to use this season to prove their place in the final 23 for Ceni & Drawkland. This includes the two Boneswomen Atlanta Moran and Corinne Jones - of Jones family fame - who broke the glass ceiling of women in the national team, Corinne leading the way with the first appearance, first start, first goal and first player of the match award, while Atlanta soon caught up and both impressed. A third Boneswoman in the squad, the giant keeper Cleo Stilt, didn't win a cap and will have to fight to be considered for the finals squad. The only other player who didn't win a cap and really needs a big season is young SS Skiveness striker Ricky Kaiser, while Harald 'Half-Blind' Citizen, playing the same position, was a massive success and is being tipped for a starting slot in Pythagoras' first XI. Rivalries for positions in the squad will be settled this season in the Ligg, and it will be fascinating to see who comes out on top.


Deductions Imminent
Ligg-1 clubs ignore foreign quotas at their peril

Despite warnings over several seasons to reduce the amount of foreign players in the starting squads of the top flight teams, most of the clubs have chosen to ignore this and the Fellowship of the Greasy Churn - that's the Bonesea FA to you and me - have apparently lost patience and will be issuing a point deduction to every team in violation of the rules at the start of the season. Deductions are said to be of the order of two per player, which doesn't sound a lot until you realise Blue Boys FF of Innstrand are seven over the limit and therefore a massive fourteen points down. So far as Boldsport can see from the registrations on record, only Athletic and Start are within the regulation, with Torpedo, Viking (2), Fishers (3), Oysterhaven, Gullravens (4), SS Skiveness, Boldclub, Industrial (5), Moss (6) and Blue Boys (7) all facing hefty deductions. Club representatives are hoping to reduce the deduction to a single point if they can't stop it entirely, but rumour has it The Fellowship are out of patience with what they see as prevarication on the part of the clubs, and are looking to come down hard on teams who have for several seasons ignored the regulations.


March of The Valkyries
All-women's churning club powers through the league, Mariners hot on their heels

Since the formation a decade ago of the all-womens youth team by young entrepreneur and ex-footballer Ragnhild Row, and the expansion into senior football with Valkyr Club set up in partnership with Nepharim ex-footballer Ivy Herrick, the Valkyries have smashed each division in turn in their march up the league, reaching Ligg-2 after three successive promotions. Driving a revolution in the sport for more inclusivity, whilst dividing opinion on whether an all-women's team sends the right message, Ivy Herrick and Ragnhild Row are at the forefront of recognition that arguably even forced the hand of coach Pythagoras Jones to give national starts to Atlanta Moran and Corinne Jones. The Valkyries will now tilt for a place in the top flight, having won each of the divisions below, but many wonder if they can pull off the impossible and achieve what has never been done before - consecutive promotions from Ligg-5 to Ligg-1. They won't be alone in that challenge. Former giants of the game Spittalmarine, shamed and relegated for corruption, found themselves in Ligg-5 at precisely the same time as the Valkyries gained entry, and have been chasing the Boneswomen ever since. The Mariners have finished a close second behind Valkyr Club in each of those promotion seasons to set up a strong rivalry between them, and with a two up-two down through the divisions, they too have achieved three straight promotions. But now things spice up considerably - only one can go up this time, and a second place finish will not suffice. Mariners will go toe to toe with Valkyries for an historic promotion, but even then could find their way blocked by several decent sides who have been playing at this level or above for some time while these two have been mixing it through the divisions. Gymnasia Scold, 1.FC Tocklehove, Grasshopper Club and Turbine FF Gallowsea will all have something to say about promotion this season, and the two rising giants will find the going a lot tougher this time around.


Asteróide Looking Heavenly
Controversy over Temporal Adjustment Treatments for 'The Old Rock'

Students of Bonesea (and perhaps, to a lesser extent, cosmology) will be aware that the fluid time refinery in Whelm, where the government brews the fuel for it's superfast Armada, causes certain temporal issues which have the net effect of speeding up the passage of time in the local region comparative to most external regions outside the influence of the temporal radiation. Residents of Bonesea age much faster than most, which has been tricky for foreigners who come to work - or play football - for a year or two, and find themselves considerably older on leaving. No problem - a temporal vaccine, a few days beauty sleep, and travellers leaving the region will find themselves restored to rude health and their proper age. Star Boldclub striker has pushed this effect to the limit to extend his career with the club, causing a controversy that Temporal Adjustment Treatments (TATs) could lead to cheating through performance enhancement. By taking the TAT on a trip home to the motherland, Asteróide has returned rejuvenated - quite literally, knocking about six years off his age as a result. Where will it all lead, wonder the General Public, outraged. Mostly because, for genetic reasons yet to be determined by the Narrative Committee, TATs do not work on Bonesfolk unless there is an extended period abroad - JK Cottle, for example, is also enjoying a second wind in Schottia.


Meanwhile Mortals Merely Age
Retirement comes to us all, eventually

Several top players have called it a day before the start of the season, including former internationals and even the first of the Jones family to start and finish their career in the Churn - Pythagoras' second son Nobb Jones has announced his retirement from playing following a couple of seasons of persistent injuries. No stranger to the treatment room through his career, Nobb will take up a physio role at Athletic where he hopes to continue working in the backroom, and perhaps one day to work with his old man on the national squad. Injuries reduced much of his career to treatment and bench-warming, yet Nobb, 35 years old, won 63 caps for his country, scoring seven goals and appearing in the Baptism of Fire final.

Athletic saw the retirement of two other former internationals in Ansell Skewes, 36, and Par Polgigga, 33, this season. Centreback Par Polgigga had, as a youngster, been considered the future all-time great of Bonesligg football and the national team, but despite playing his career at the top with Florence Boldclub and then Athletic, never really hit the heights predicted of him. Nevertheless he made 24 appearances for his country, and scored twice. Ansell Skewes made 43 appearances for his country and scored three goals, which is an impressive haul for someone who stood in line behind the mighty combination of Marouaine 'Wanger' Shanty and Skua Ortiz for the defensive halfback position, and largely played the back-up to those two for his whole international career despite his fine qualities. He is joined on the retirement list by his cousin EA Skewes, who mirrored much of his career, starting out with him at lower league AFC Hearts before both progressed into the top flight with Moss FC. Eventually Ansell signed for Athletic while EA ended his career at Torpedo Spitney. EA Skewes, a fine inside forward who spent much of his international career in the shadow of the great Chilli-Bean Acosta, fell one short of his cousin by winning 42 caps for his country but matching his goal tally of three goals, and winning an Independents Cup title along the way.

A goalkeeper who appeared for the national team also retired this season, with Duald Dunbar, 40, having been around the Sailors team for much of his career. He made 37 appearances, commanding the number one shirt for the period between early legend Zipper Smith and current incumbent and favourite Donkey Ray Harton. Duald played his whole club career with Start-93, who also lost a well-travelled favourite, Zenegalese defender Godwin Ba, 34, who appeared for greats including Spittalmarine, Boldclub, Viking and SS Skiveness.


Transfer Talk
All the key moves in one paragraph
Or three, perhaps

Despite winning the title with Oysterhaven Reds last season, Daineri Cortysyn quit the club at the end of the season and surprised everyone by moving down the road to sign for close rivals SS Skiveness in probably the highest profile move of the off-season. The highly regarded centre forward has been in the top ten rated foreign players each season he has played, winning the league, cup and second division in his time with the Reds, and it is understood the club did not want to lose him. Rumour has it he was keen to link up with fellow countrymen Lobjstein and Katanga, and this was less to do with football and more to do with the nightlife of Skiveness. Two big players left the Herrings though, with long-serving striker Sted Gluvian heading into the capital to play for Torpedo Spitney, while young superstar Tijan Sanyang, the Makongolese inside forward who was the Bonesligg young player of the season just two years ago, poached by potential title rivals Florence Boldclub. In the striker merry-go-round, Oysterhaven then signed former Bonesea international Proteus Whinchat-Windle from Start-93 to replace Cortysyn.

There were less foreign imports this season, perhaps the clubs sensing the change of mood at the Fellowship, and the highest profile signing - if there has ever been such a thing with foreign imports - being Florence Boldclub's gamble on young Audioslav defender Ximon Gonzalezde-Durana, 23, who has come from his home country's lower leagues. Meanwhile SS Skiveness are banking on a Farv rookie, left back Santos Bajana, as a potential star of tomorrow, and Oysterhaven Reds have used their management contacts to bring in three unheard-of Audioslav kids, Cletus Popoff, Riccardo Marrocco and Urtzi Lozoya to freshen up their junior ranks and hopefully make a breakthrough into the first team. The Narrative Committee has immediately raised an interested eyebrow at the imminent arrival of Cletus Popoff.

Foreign favourite Adel Nzonzi, the Semar who starred for SS Skiveness and Viking Tananger, has called it a day and headed off to pastures new. With rumours that the crisis-torn Republic of Semarland is headed toward a Catastrophic Termination Event, Adel has signed for Mareseilles HC in the Crystal Empire and looks set on a change of codes by mixing it with the long-faced hoofball schemers. A former Johnny Foreigner award winner and favourite in Bonesea, he will be missed by his club and by the Bonesligg. Adel leads a small troop of players from foreign fields making their exit via the international departure gate, along with Boldclub stalwart Erik Marlowe, the Nepharim striker returning home to sign for Southfell United and hoping to force his was into international contention - something he felt would never happen in the relative obscurity of the Boreal Islands. Sunrisians David Whitely from Gullravens and Arichi Kunorikato from Blue Boys FF head to their all-new reinvented homeland of Kito-Hinode to play for Miare CosmoStars and Pascal Mashu respectively, while fellow countryman Leonardo Ducaldo, quite a favourite at Grasshopper, heads to Brenecia and Northern Stallions, hoping for more UICA football. Finally Oysterhaven Reds keeper Joseph Amé, championship medal in hand, has disappeared into the mists of Abaja from whence he came, after playing a considerable part in their rise to the top of the game - he leaves behind three compatriots, Serian Osopo and Nia Xon still at the Reds, while Ulena Asunao turns out for Turbine in Ligg-2 these days.

Club By Club

Prospecting For Season 590
By Boldsport chief sports writer, Starling Maw

After two seasons in which the power houses of Bonesligg football - Boldclub, SS and Athletic - were ousted by a new generation of upstart small town teams in Blue Boys FF of Innstrand and Oysterhaven Reds from the Isle of Skive, one wonders when and how hard those big clubs will strike back. We at Boldsport predict that neither Florence Boldclub nor Athletic St. Leah have it in them to challenge this season as their transitional struggles continue in the capital, where they are likely to be overtaken by the traditional 'fourth club' of Spittalsea - Torpedo Spitney. But one club looks supreme coming into this season in SS Skiveness, from the administrative centre (or fold-town) of the Isle of Skive and just down the road from the upstart Reds. The Herrings under Kenny Rising have never been outside the top three, and he has built a side full of the best Bonesea has to offer, whether it be our best national team players, or some of the most exciting foreign types in the league. Expect the two teams from the eastern end of the island - Reds and Herrings - to go toe to toe again this season as they did last. But this time, we predict, it will be the old masters, SS Skiveness, who will prevail, to win a record-equalling thirteenth title bringing them level with Florence Boldclub.

Retired: Par Polgigga, Ansell Skewes, Nobb Jones

The Ancients are beginning to live up to their nickname with Ruan Buzzard's side the oldest average in the division, and with three key retirements not replaced, in the eyes of many, with younger talent coming through, the side looks set for a struggle until Ruan can complete something of an overhaul. Of course there is always Cade Jones, probably the best player in Bonesea right now, and everyone is eagerly anticipating new Nepharim free agent Banshee Arnold, but Athletic are in for a tough season unless some of the youngsters surprise us - step forward Staffa Anderson and the Jones cousins, Hob & Buan.

Retired: -

The shock title of two seasons ago seems a long way off now and the Blues are back to finding their way among the middle pack. In what is likely to be manager Arlo Smith-Williams, 73, last season after a 30+ year reign, the side from Innstrand will be hopeful of another glory season, and have some reasons to be positive - notably Bonesea World Cup pair Hippo Dipper and Bantam Rose, who have impressed in qualifying. Some impressive young foreigners have been bolstered by veteran Cosumarite Igor Tang, but what could do it for the Blues is precisely the amount of foreign registrations they have in the team this season - 15 players could cost them anywhere between 7 and 14 points in the deductions plan of the Bonesligg.

Bonebet: 9th
First XI: Jordi Spanya (SAN); Essa Bajo (wMAK); Hendra 'Hippo' Dipper, Nadia Lanescott, Bantam Rose, Pieter-Bas Noodveld (wORJ); Oxto Oliviera (CPV), Glloum (FAF), Ozymandias (DAI), Fursa Quinn, Zololila (wMZY)

Artigan Smith has built a team of scrappers up in the cold northerly fishing town of Grimsea, with plenty of experience and a fresh injection of talent through the likes of highly rated youngsters Castor Saltash and Orm Retire. But they may not be enough to save Fishers, who looked short on ideas last season and have not strengthened significantly this season while those around them have been busy. Boldsport predicts a relegation season (which pretty much guarantees they will stay up, but we have to pick someone...)

Bonebet: 12th

Out: Essa Bajo (wMAK, to Blue Boys FF) Vicarius Demelza (Fishers Grimsea) Illand Penaluna (wTAM, Start-93) Cade Ruly (Viking Tananger) Erik Marlowe (NPH, Southfell United NPH)
Promoted: Pythagoras MacDuff, Vavá (DAI) Cromwell Jeruselem, Mækir Magnussen (wBEO) Ors Rátz (PAS)
Retired: Webber O'Neill (injury), Tathai Rigby

The Green Fairies seemingly unstoppable march toward mid-table obscurity was temporarily halted last season as Piper Doughty led her side to a third placed finish, but expect the mediocirty to creep back in this season as the most successful club in Bonesligg history continue to struggle with balance and togetherness in the squad. Packed with individual talents, they have struggled in recent seasons to look like a team. With Asteróide taking controversial rejuvenation treatments outside of Bonesea over the break, perhaps he will retun with added oomph to bring this squad together - otherwise, don't expect much from the Boldclub.

Bonebet: 6th
First XI: Zé Caramba (USI); Loze Cotterill; Harald Fireblade (COS), Oto (DAI); Jay Witt, Copernicus Robinson; Axsiuu (DAI), Mano Onio (wKKA), Asteróide (DAI), Femur Jones, Mullion Key

Gullravens To Hit High Breeze

In: Sophia Capricorn (BRE, from Falkner United, BRE) Fiakr Le Lay (wSEP, Athletic)
Out: David Whitley (USI, to Miare CosmoStars HIN)
Promoted: SX Hobba, Husband Downgate-Vial, Wendon Northward, Bohago Tencreek
Retired: -

Perhaps the polar opposite of the Boldclub, Gullravens are a team that remains greater than the sum of its parts - there are few individual stars in the side but plenty of solid team players. This season the canny manager Hastein Zelah has added a couple of really interesting players to the roster in Capricorn and Le Lay, the latter a proven striker in the Bonesligg, and this could bring the Gulls well into the upper reaches of the division. Expect solid and dependable, with a splash of thrill and spill.

Bonebet: 4th
First XI: Anders Boness (SEM); Paddack Coffey; Nazárinho (ARK), Billy Sweed; Sophia Capricorn (BRE), Åsmund Urness (wVAE); Shreya Jacka, Sunrise Tshabalala (SEM), Pascoe Johnson, Fiakr Le Lay (wSEP), Kaiser Blight

Eleventh Will Do, Tenth A Success

In: Adamastor (DAI, from Extreme Hills, NPH) Pat Robinson (Torpedo) Bane Smith, Eden Visdeloup (wSEP)(SS Skiveness) Mikkael Knutsson (SEM, Arkrau Klub, SEM) Guto (USI, Los-Juantos Coastal, SLL) Finn Gunsson (SEM, Molsbik Arkjet SEM)
Out: -
Promoted: -
Retired: -

Ifni Andersson has won admirers at every level of the game and added considerably to the list with a surprise promotion last season from Ligg-2. Industrial came in under the radar to win a place in the top flight and it will take all of her management skills to keep them there. A canny off-season in the transfer market has strengthened the side considerably, with the likes of Adamastor coming from the Nepharim domestic league and experienced Bonesligg campaigners like Eden Visdeloup and Pat Robinson. They might just pull off their stated target - simple survival.

Bonebet: 10th
First XI: Milio Le Bris (wPOI); Adamastor (DAI); Tania Lank, Derry de Syngleton; Pat Robinson, Hedd Powell (wRSG); Mateo Rossini (USI/OSS), Lavrenty Filippovich (SHM), Arthgallo Lock, Bane Smith, Snorre Baardsen (wVAE)

Nickname: The Bryophytes
Last Season: 6th

Titles: 4

More Of The Same?

In: Rémi Fofana (wZEN, from SS Skiveness) Øystein Bergan (wVAE, Guillemots)
Out: Levan Messa (to Start-93)
Promoted: Sadio Diop
Retired: Tinunefi (MZY)

Nothing much changes at glacial Moss FC, including their failure to achieve anything remarkable for almost a lifetime. Manager Camillo Jones doesn't like to switch his squad around too much and loses more players than he brings in almost every season, and yet manages to keep the Bryophytes away from relegation trouble. He did recruit Zenegalese defender Rémi Fofana this off-season in a surprisingly interesting move, but whether that is enough to jazz up their contribution to the Bonesligg remains to be seen.

Bonebet: 8th
First XI: Bernard Doisneau (wSEP); Towan Halldorsson; Stokoe Bartail, Rémi Fofana (wZEN); Ultán Curran (wSKO), Yasir Ala al-Din (wBBS); Cloudsley Shovel, Venton Jones, Seaton Jones, Snorri Jones, Robin Lod (KFN)

Title Defence Looks Strong

Promoted: Ljot Boas, Maël Rose
Retired: -

Genius coaches Ez & Dav, the Audioslav celebrity management duo, pulled off the apparently impossible last season to win a first title for The Reds, through a two-pronged tactical approach of complete reliance on Apoxi wonderkid Pluto Blinkman, and total overperformance of the rest of the team. Could they get this much out of the side again this season? It seems unlikely, although the addition of former national team striker Proteus Whinchat-Windle is an interesting move that could bear rich fruit. And will they bring something special out of fellow countryman and previously unheard-of halfback Cletus Popoff, who will learn his churning trade alongside the remarkable Pluto.

Bonebet: Runners-Up
First XI: Lamonaco; Cerebral Siskin; Pluto Blinkman (APX), Cletus Popoff (AUD); Junior Abessou (wZEN), Faolan MacAomalain (wSKO); Menadue Crackington, Proteus Whinchat-Windle, Waterloo Austin, Serian Osopo (ABJ), Cocó (USI)

Nickname: The Herrings
Last Season: Runners-Up

Manager: Kenny Rising
Captain: Nacho Zambrano
Superstar: Idaios Clapp
Wonderkid: Hockey Boscoppa-Cropper

Stadium: Driftwood Park
Capacity: 16,200
Titles: 12 (2 Ligg/Kop doubles)
Kop wins: 11 (the most wins, from 16 finals - most appearances)

Title Challenge Looks Stronger

In: Valentin Eriksen (SEM, from Molsbik Arkjet SEM) Cortysyn (DAI, Oysterhaven Reds)
Out: Tijan Sanyang (wMAK, to Florence Boldclub) Bane Smith, Eden Visdeloup (wSEP) (Industrial) Rémi Fofana (wZEN, Moss FC) Sted Gluvian (Torpedo)
Promoted: Florentin Pernet (wSEP) Ultán Carlin, Mathéo Robin (wSEP)
Retired: Jackson Owen (wPSE, to injury)

With a bloody nose from last season, watching their upstart local rivals from Oysterhaven take their first title, and a squad replete with graceful talent, it is hard to see beyond total domination from The Herrings this season, even despite the release of some fine players to other clubs. Manager Kenny Rising has proven decisive and ruthless in modelling his squad, prepared to let former young player of the season Tijan Sanyang go after a disappointing second season, and promoting the excellent Hockey Boscoppa-Cropper in his place. He has a raft of talent coming through from the excellent Young Offenders FC academy, and looks all set for a bright season at the top of the game.

Bonebet: Champions
First XI: Toll Gurvey; Larrick Jones-Gummo (wWGT); William Dodson, Lobjstein (HUE); Cleon Jay Scopps, Hockey Boscoppa-Cropper; Idaios Clapp, Yoann Drezen (wSEP), Ursell Grayse-Lennox, Nacho Zambrano (wTAM), Jose Enrique (USI)

Transitioning Toward The Top

In: Illand Penaluna (wTAM, from Boldclub) Levan Messa (Moss FC) Mattheus Norregaard (POL, Arkrau Klub SEM)
Out: Proteus Whinchat-Windle (to Oysterhaven Reds) Fingal Altimimy (COS, Reaper Kamandu HIN)
Promoted: Daig Coad, Wendron Trewey, Trator (wIPN)
Retired: Duald Dunbar, Godwin Ba (wZEN)

You heard it here first - this is a team on the up. Veteran coach Buccus Hike has always had an eye for building teams, and he has a fine foundation here including five Bonesea internationals and a couple of junior nationals too. With long-serving former international keeper Duald Dunbar retiring coach Hike pulled in a very capable replacement in Illand Penaluna from the Boldclub, and he has a spine of young internationals in Aidan Laughingull, Paddy Barcelona, Oran Swann, Atlanta Moran and the fabulous Osric Bunker to build on. This won't be the season, but it is not far away.

Bonebet: 7th
First XI: Illand Penaluna; Aidan Laughingull; Paddy Barcelona, Oran Swann; Calvo Jones-Watergate, Osric Bunker; Atlanta Moran, Pop Jones, Gunna Capsize, Adisa Thoko Afolayan (wZEN), Etienne Fuentes (wSEP)

Big Season Coming

In: Sted Gluvian (from SS Skiveness) Yanis de Looff (wSEP, Viking) Martin Bogard (SEM, Kangemark Sport SEM) Exitosus (DAI, Apox Centre for Excellence, Tolling)
Out: Noah Mockingbird (to Florence Boldclub) Pat Robinson (Industrial)
Promoted: Tobias Dye (wWGT) Wade Smith
Retired: EA Skewes, Idriss Labo (wZEN)

Torpedo are looking good. Some of the top local lads who have impressed in World Cup qualifying and will be playing for a place in Ceni & Drawkland - Cett Smith, Climo Tyree, Cnán Duck - will combine with a number of experienced Bonesligg vets in Sted Gluvian (signing of the season?), Ruben Roche and Kite Cattran, along with some of our most admired Daineris - Ravinger, Tanque and new addition Exitosus. This looks to be an exciting season ahead for the team from the capital, in which they could well emerge from the shadow of the Boldclub and Athletic to become the city's number one team.

Bonebet: 3rd
First XI: Cett Smith; Climo Tyree; Ravinger (DAI), Tanque (DAI); Kite Cattran, Ruben Roche; Bentley Loken (BJK), Cnán Duck, Sted Gluvian, Utney Washington, Lua York-Smith

Better Season Coming

In: Etienne Morris (from Blue Boys FF) Cade Ruly (Boldclub)
Out: Lilian Mbo (to Fishers Grimsea) Yanis de Looff (wSEP, Torpedo) Adel Nzonzi (SEM, Mareseilles, CRY)
Promoted: VH Larrick, Badger Bohago, Cain Lost
Retired: -

The glory days of a decade and more ago are a long way behind Viking and tthe club has struggled to come to terms with their loss of status over that time, including a relegation to Ligg-2. But manager Buzza McCarthy is slowly rebuilding confidence and style in the team, centred around Wilkie Banda-Scrote, and this season may see the Vikings emerge as more than a perennial struggler. They have relied on foreign free-agents and local youngsters promoted from the academy to do it, and the project is beginning to pay dividends. Watch for Ermine de Marisco this season to impress.

Bonebet: 5th
First XI: Etienne Morris; Attus Marrow; Wilkie Banda-Scrote, Jannick den Linds (SEM); Dim Bustard, Mingoose Jones; Humiliberto (HUE), Tropicão (DAI), Becky Biss, Midezi (wMZY), Qiu Huo (wHUA)


*OOC Note
I'm attempting to run one season per RL calendar month (season SB-590, here, is for December '17 and is the run up to the WC Finals) based on my general rule of thumb that one RL month = one NS year (Boneytime). This will have an ageing impact on overseas players who come to Bonesea with a different ageing pattern. It may be impossible to resolve this satisfactorily with people using different interpretations of time; I'd suggest the Fluid Time refinery based in Whelm, akin to a leaky and unstable nuclear power plant, may be responsible for irregular ageing processes that will naturally be reversed with only minor medical intervention - a temporal regularisation jab and a good night's sleep - when characters return to other regions of the multiverse and spend time in more temporally stable environments. i.e. you age them as you see fit... Always open to ideas, suggestions and collaborations on this point, via TG initially.
