Season 20,069
Final And Review

Week 34
Premiership Matchday 30
Mar Sara FC 1-3 Raynor City United
Kareen FC 2-5 Ibini FC
Gladerial United 0-3 Wexax United
Straightdale FC 0-1 Rolalas FC
Juavi FC 4-1 SC Rinaldi
Club Valanora 2-4 FC Capri
Club ESF 1-0 Char Sara FC
Hondo FC 2-4 Soldarian FC


And with a very convincing victory in Gladerial, Capri have done the impossible and taken the title right from United's grasp, as the Rockers went into Mar Sara and comfortably beat the Flames. However it was not enough with Capri overcoming all the doubt that people had about their roster coming into the season and taking advantage of United, Wexax, Hondo, and Ibini all being less than their usual selves this season to be crowned as Premiership champions. Juavi may be going back to the Star League, but they went out on a high note with their victory over Rinaldi. Soldarian is the side who gets the last Globe Cup spot and that's a feat in itself considering how their season started. United now face the unusual path of qualifying for the Champions' Cup group stage but perhaps they are better for it, having become too accustomed to success and the instant berth into the group stages. Regardless, all the teams in the ICC have a lot of work ahead of them if they are to redeem the league's reputation after the many failings in the ICCs this season.

Week 35
Silver Cup Final
@ Hatire Memorial, Capri

Athletic Rolalas 1-1(1-1 AET)[3-4 PKs] Ibini FC


For a second straight season, the Premiership was able to save face for the league, though that the Islanders were taken to penalty kicks has to be a bit worrying. However, Fresco was able to slot in the winning kick and send the Islanders to their championship, much the way the Islander faithful wished to have seen in the league.

Season 20,069

Raynor City's dominance over the league has been toppled, as the Raptors were unable to keep pace with Ianisle as the season wore on. The Raptors are now looking at a possible trip into the preliminary rounds of the HCL as a result of slipping all the way into third, with the Majestics showing their pedigree in finding ways to grind out victories. The Raptors can take solace that they were far and away the best offensive team in the league this year, but as Ianisle's paltry eighty-eight goals for across the seventy-six games shows, you don't need a great offense in order to win the league. The Guardians did live up to their name, keeping the most shutouts in the league as well as having the second best goals against, with only the Panthers being better by two goals. The Kings had a bit of a slip up compared to last season and are only into the HCL thanks to the grace of having won last year's edition, though will they have the toughness to see out the HCL this time or will their league form show through everything?

Season 20,070

Ianisle's championship is a long memory after the holders were not even in the top half of the table this season and rather it was the traditional powerhouse of Stormguard that rose the to top and was the clear most deserving side to lift the title this season with the perinnal HCL powerhouses in Raynor City being a far away second and the rest of the league even further behind the Raptors. Stormguard is the hotbed and home of hockey in the Eternal Realm, it seems quite fitting that the Lions were able to secure the title this season and in such a dominating fashion, though they will likely not be content with just their domestic success. For all of it that they have had, it is those pesky people in the capital that seem to know how to win in the international arena and that fact will have to have those in Stormgaurd stewing, given they were the dominating force in the original HCL before the refounding. Raynor City will no doubt be upset by not capturing the EHL title but their record haul of HCLs is sure to keep the sadness at bay and they will go into the next edition looking to add to that tally with a huge amount of confidence, while Longview and Travesian will likely just be happy to make it to that tournament.

Season 20,072 Preview


Lineups are listed right to left where applicable

Image
AC Valanari
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Polennoion Mitheththor | Stadium: Duran Palace (51,000)
Last Season: 1st (Star League) | Predicted Finish: 14th
Starting XI (4-4-2 diamond): Belltarion Nartalhûn; Parrathdon Aeramiel, Glenniadien Auglithlhûn, Bermornon Lantaina, Rûien Dlaranil; Melfinion Yrauelon, Sithandon Lantathas; Gondien Faerondaerl; Morthudon Talmirlhûn, Galenmoruth Taletheil

The Young Blues came back into the Premiership with authority, running rampant through the Star League as if they had a fire lit beneath them. They are never going to be a title challenger, and it is even hard to see them in their current state to making the top half, but Valanari definitely are a top flight team and should stay up. Maybe it requires the Relegation-Promotion playoff but the squad showed last season they are too good for the Star League and this is the level they should be playing at.

Image
Char Sara FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Aeraderdolnar Mithtathiel | Stadium: The Tar Pit (39,000)
Last Season: 9th | Predicted Finish: 10th
Starting XI (3-3-1-3): Legoion Taltauré; Bronlanda Culiththir, Suibelladas Maltholdar, Tanthandon Lartandar; Image Caninde, Image Jess Ingram-Hardwick, Image Stefan Dahmer; Titimelnar Neleththar; Veryamaedil Yrauelon, Hirdur Matanil, ImageRussell McGeouch

Showing something of a spark in moving into the upper half of the midtable, the Inferno faithful were rewarded with the aquisition of veteran Audioslav midfielder Dahmer, one of the few transfers into the Premiership this season. Some are skeptical if the veteran, who will be playing on the wing for the Inferno, has enough left in the tank to send the Inferno into ICC contention or not, with the general feeling of continued midtable existence for this once proud club.

Image
Club ESF
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Darantion Shayaar | Stadium: Donna Cathedral (60,000)
Last Season: 10th | Predicted Finish: 10th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Llepandorton Rololond; Herhiliel Telraiian, Merimoron Nalllithe, Kathanon Berthanthor, Gwilsiniel Runtandar; Tatolron Ondotaur, Tûrin Kiraiseer, Filthenraya Haeeme; Tidurthal Yraueme; Ciredollra Narethlal, Allassthor Lanalvaar

Two straight seasons back in the midtable has a lot of people thinking that the Blues just are not cut out for season in, season out contention at the top. They are still a relatively good squad but they lack the depth that the title challengers have and we have seen over the past two years just how much that lack of depth has cost them when the final table comes around.

Image
Club Valanora
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Polenmáran Tanendrin | Stadium: Tiradir (30,000)
Last Season: 11th | Predicted Finish: 12th
Starting XI (4-4-2): Voronthil Taltauré; Círthoria Aldalond, Úthladiel Elendhen, Maerion Hathalmyr, Bregdorion Lasseththar; Alsidhóle Feldhrinthar, Côfwaiion Nhatholsel, Aerlariel Gatanar, Rochenion Ondosumé; Úpaddan Haetauré, Dauidrendoliel Galonren

Two straight seasons in the top flight despite all the predictions to the contrary, is this a sign of things to come from the Warriors or has this success been all smoke and mirrors? Instinct says that it is the latter but hope has it believing it to the be the former, the answer should be found out this season as the level of competition seems to have ratcheted up quite a bit.

Image
FC Capri
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Daersirien Undolond | Stadium: Hatire Memorial (60,000)
Last Season: 1st | Predicted Finish: 4th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Hothion Feltatheth; Tamlassas Celetaar, Erutalion Toraethil, Erynron Talnae, Earyaleryn Gwalinde; Filwame Omasas, Gwestanna Nhataseer, Celemerun Haanial; Gwenordorion Mithtata; Aranion Gaethelen, Image Sue Hackett

Last season will be one that the Typhoon will not soon forget, as they came out of nearly nowhere to snatch the title from United's grips. However the side have lost what seemed to be the difference maker in Palacious and without finding a suitable replacement looks to really hinder the squad. With United, Hondo, and Ibini as hungry as ever, it is hard to believe that the Typhoon can mount a solid defense of their title, especially with the added fixtures they will be having this season.

Image
Gladerial United
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Lathweldorien Naranar | Stadium: The White Fortress (70,000)
Last Season: 12th | Predicted Finish: 15th
Starting XI (4-4-2): Elsiróle Isiliyaas; Tharthonnen Oreth, Athpantdrach Taltauré, Taniethon Aeradhen, Daernathiel Kiglinaeil; Maerahiniel Lassmireil, Nibenthâron Gwarina, Vanya Tathtauré, Eruanion Telethina; Seregethia Talnae, Imluanion Shadilindal

Somehow the Twilight found enough points to not just survive but even to avoid the playoff and that comes as an amazement to everyone but perhaps the Twilight themselves. However, I still believe this to be the weakest side in the entire division and without reinforcements to take over the departed Quebecois, this side lacks the grit as well to see itself rise above its current station.

Image
Hondo FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Melimost Cromsumé | Stadium: Raynor Memorial (40,000)
Last Season: 13th | Predicted Finish: 3rd
Starting XI (3-3-1-3): Bardhudon Vanlond; Adanrond Kevaanthor, Ainglad Gwavaul, Suiarond Orloth; Neslaercan Berethil, Image Issac Holt, Sellan Teltaththor; Image Angelo Farías; Limborn Neldragmae, Taurmárion Ealoelon, Rimedur Shadirthor

Age finally caught up to Diana Cooper last season as she had clearly lost a step, with the lack of chemistry in the squad seeing the side have a season they would rather just forget ever took place. It has to be an aberration though as there is too much talent in this side, with the likes of Holt and Angelo to be anywhere beyond the top 5 and with the way last season went, you have to believe they will be looking for a bit of redemption and rise back up to title contention.

Image
Ibini FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Vamariiel Falavir | Stadium: Metropolis (39,000)
Last Season: 4th | Predicted Finish: 2nd
Starting XI (4-4-2): Aediron Galadirdren; Lamalnyl Birsumé, Melegethiel Haeviel, Urúvcion Kinarthir, Moréthîriel Celedilinellyn; Meltolthcath Mithendion, Lathwelvorton Aldadhen, Image Tiffany Elam, Tanna Norovathar; Allandren Fresco, Gonmucaethor Mithlithelen

In a season where Hondo and United both looked not quite up for it, the Islanders were unable to keep a good set of form going and had to settle with fourth. While a marginal improvement compared to the previous season, it is not in that top two and title hunt that the Islanders want to be and this needs to be a season where they show the same sort of hunger that made them such a feared club to begin with or perhaps see the departure of their stars like Norovathar and Fresco.

Image
Kareen FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Naraion Ealovathar | Stadium: Rose Gardens (49,000)
Last Season: 14th | Predicted Finish: 13th
Starting XI (4-4-2 diamond): Dûrien Tinuvir; Authmion Tanésta, Image Liam Plymouth, Aranolë Neltathian, Image Gretel Behan; Image Paulie Papon; Image Catheline Portsman, Narawë Norovir; Image Abdul Baasid Ismael; Lydan Talvaul, Athrondon Larenlasyr

While the side did show moments of greatness in the season, they also showed some disjointedness that one would expect from a side that was hastily thrown together during a summer window. Now that they have had a year to play together, I expect a more cohesive effort and staying in the top flight, if only just, and in the end, survival is all that matters currently.

Image
Mar Sara FC
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Taurnordómthon Undovir | Stadium: Artani (74,000)
Last Season: 3rd | Predicted Finish: 5th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Draugwë Nororon; Image Lucjusz Stef, Image Aililath Nerenn, Image Seve Vásquez, Revion Galaethlhûn; Tharfindad Aeralinde, Caeltimyonan Haerear, Tûradhiel Birelwa; Emerwë Mathandal; Arahileth Haevathar, Ardaugien Ealomiel

Rising back up to the expected top five position, the Flames are looking like rejuvenated even if there are no transfers to talk of. Perhaps the redesign of the club's crest and a new set of kits, including a new third kit whose primary color is blue as an homage to the city's old war banners being blue and white, is the reason for the renewed sense of optimism for the club. United and Ibini are good sides but the Flames should be able to contend with them both and may even sneak a title like Capri did last season.

Image
Quel'Thalas FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Áeradas | Stadium: Mantirini (31,000)
Last Season: 2nd (Star League) | Predicted Finish: 16th
Starting XI (4-4-2): Tanidur Mithésthir; Lona Mithbrindar, Lona Mithbrindar, Eidirdolren Runendian, Caunwë Elersumé; Heristiel Toraethar, Urúvost Toraelenonel, Lairlaiir Dlarlynnas, Aranaran Ealotaur; Tarauthien Shalandalan, Anesnostiel Orval

It has been many years since the Green-Blues last made it to the top flight and when you look at their roster, you imagine that it will not be a long stay. This is not a knock on their players, as they played quite well in the Star League, but they are simply not quite up to the modern day caliber of what you expect from the Premiership. Unfortunately that means the Quel'Thalas will probably be propping up the table for most of the season and end there as well.

Image
Raynor City United
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Vanaina Talglinaelen | Stadium: The Battleground (78,000)
Last Season: 2nd | Predicted Finish: 1st
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Image Bobbie Kennedy; Megilcion Tantholil, ImageCorella da Silva, Image Oani Moralziia, Image Ooóoos Skueri; Aintôrthea Durosa, Image Timi'sala Koarena, Ilglerdiriel Lithvathar; Image Cristian Arango; Image Tájö Çíânflöné, Image Carlos Alberto Sáez

In what many are speculating to be Sáez' last season with the club, the Rockers will have to overcome what was an incredible fall from having the title wrapped up to seeing FC Capri nip it from them in the end. The squad is aging and a lot of these players will now be playing for both pride and for their spots when next summer comes, as the coffers were being padded with a lack of movement this cycle to prepare for big splashes next year.

Image
Rolalas FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Gliria Kilothtinu | Stadium: The West Wall (41,000)
Last Season: 7th | Predicted Finish: 10th
Starting XI (3-4-3 Diamond): Anathiaiel Elersumé; Balatulcien Aldalond, Rendrannwen Gathalthar, Renmariiel Faladel; Belltherdon Cularin; Medyavwen Undoelon, Aranyan Lithtauré; Filtiiadhya Elerdel; Dorthaagorthon Shamirmae, Arandil Dlartholryl, Edenis Taleme

Rolalas will be remembered in the records of Vanorian football as the team Jaime Kuu first managed before his eventual success with RCU, the Vanorian national team, and then the Starblaydi national team. The team was far off their resurgence from the year before but still was quite comfortable in their midtable finish, a place that is probably their calling card until the managerial staff finds a way to convince better players to come play in the burbs of Raynor City.

Image
SC Rinaldi
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Fëanor Nénharma | Stadium: The Beachfront (43,000)
Last Season: 6th | Predicted Finish: 8th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Nienna Sáralondë; Tamuríl Amandil, Image Torbjörn Jorgensen, Lenwë Tinúviel, Urúvwë Malethina; Eslimiel Noromiel, Nienna Eärfalas, Halateliel Faelandalan; Armelar Rolosumé; Caunborn Aldalithe, Image Fionn Lynch

Jorgensen and Lynch both added something to the Gunners but it was just not quite enough to slide back into the top 5 and the ICC places that those top positions provide, as well as the extra amount of reward money it could have provided to reinforce the squad. If the Gunners are going to contend with the top sides, which looks unlikely right now, then it will come on the back of Lynch whom the manager is banking on providing the spearhead of the attack.

Image
Soldarian FC
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Omani Rios | Stadium: Hellgate (54,000)
Last Season: 5th | Predicted Finish: 6th

Falling back to the pack, the Soldars now looking to their well nurtured Pasargan product to help Casillas in the attack. The strength of Pasargan strikers is well known in the footballing world and can he be the key to making this squad not play second fiddle to United in the capital? Probably not but it is that idea that has the Soldarian supporters feelings this could be another top five year, even if the pundits disagree.

Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Bellvanton Lanyamyr | Stadium: Castle de Mot (49,000)

Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Morohdir Mithtanina; Banmaeson Sharondalan, Image Perla Sierra, Urúvdion Shatholryl, Legowë Wertanellyn; Glennlaiion Talelon, Idhôndon Cuendthor, Lathernen Aldatauré; Bandaron Kevatathor; Ehtthuien Kiraiar, Aranion Celealvalal

The loss of Park in the net may be a blessing in the disguise, provided that the Hammers can find a way into the top 5 this season and attract some talent in the offseason, with home grown Mithtanina having to be a stop gap in the interim. Sierra has been awarded the captain's armband and the belief is that the Cosumarite has the steel needed to get the Hammers back into title contention.

Season 20,072
Part 1

Week 0


Globe Cup First Prelim Round
(VAL) Soldarian FC 2–0 Bourne River (ETN) 2–0 0–0
SBCC First Prelim Round
(VAL) Turmondale United 6–1 Bankers United (VLE) 3–0 3–1


While most of the rest of league is getting in their preseason friendlies to pick up the fitness levels before the league season begins, both Turmondale and Soldarian had early UICA rounds to contest. The Soldars cruised behind a first leg brace from Keled Petheô to see off Bourne River, with the away leg being a drab nil nil affair. In the capital, Turmondale showed they are ready to put up a promotion challenge in the Star League this season with comprehensive wins both home and away against their regional adversaries.

Week 1


Champions' Cup Second Prelim Round
(PCR) Blue Coast 1981 6–4 Raynor City United (VAL) 5–2 1–2
Globe Cup Second Prelim Round
(JUE) US Remeno 3–5 Soldarian FC (VAL) 2–2 1–3
SBCC Second Prelim Round
(VAL) Quel’Thalas FC 1–4 IFK Aldenskoett (COS) 0–1 1–3
(VAL) Turmondale United 5–3 Cowdenbeath (CSE) 3–1 2–2


In one of the biggest shockers of recent memory, United was thrashed in the first leg of their Champions' Cup preliminary match and despite showing class in the return leg were defeated in the aggregate and relegated towards a Globe Cup spot. It is a shock to the United faithful who are quite used to Champions' Cup group stage play at the least and puts a head dent in their aspirations for the season, perhaps even signaling that the side is perhaps a year too old and needs some major overhaul. The Soldars had some trouble as well, even with Casillas and Keled getting away goals, but were ultimately able to win at home after Casillas got a second half hattrick. Newly promoted Quel'Thalas showed their lack of talent as they were easily dispatched by Cosumarite opppsition, while Turmondale used the capital crowd to win their first leg and ultimately the tie, though once more not without a good deal of trouble from what was supposed to be a weak foe.

Week 2
Premiership Matchday 1
Raynor City United 0-3 Quel'Thalas FC
Mar Sara FC 3-0 AC Valanari
Ibini FC 0-0 Kareen FC
Wexax United 2-1 Gladerial United
Rolalas FC 0-0 Club Valanora
SC Rinaldi 1-0 Club ESF
FC Capri 4-2 Hondo FC
Char Sara FC 0-4 Soldarian FC


The season starts out on the completely wrong foot for United who were thoroughly outplayed at home despite their legion of great foreign talent by what was supposed to be the weakest team in the division. While it is only a single match, when you combine this with the Champions' Cup tie, you have to question United's decision not to make changes during the transfer window. However they were not the only title contender to slip up at the start, with Hondo losing away to the holders and Ibini unable to find a goal in Vyinta against Kareen, which is truly surprising given the latter's defensive woes at times. The Gunners and Hammers both quietly nabbed opening day victories while the change at the striker position looks like it has been a good one for the Soldars as Casillas and Keled seem to have great chemistry together.

Week 3


Globe Cup Playoff Round
(VAL) Soldarian FC 3–3 a SC West Namagoro (DKI) 1–3 2–0
(ARN) Niesburg Chariots 1–4 Raynor City United (VAL) 1–4 0–0
(DAR) MTK Kingsville 2–1 Ibini FC (VAL) 1–1 1–0
SBCC Playoff Round
(ESH) Club Ithinia 2–6 Turmondale United (VAL) 1–1 1–5
(AUD) Cazadores Cathair a 3–3 AC Valanari (VAL) 1–1 2–2


Well that was a rather auspicious UICA week, as two sides were eliminated on the away goals rules, though that was expected with the Young Blues taking on Audioslav opposition as the Northeastern nation has developed quite good clubs as of the last decade or so. That both Soldarian and Ibini lost though is a huge blow and casts major doubts about the competitiveness of the Premiership against the other top leagues, as the majority of the clubs are now eliminated before group play has even began. United and Turmondale both won convincingly, though United was not able to get a win at home and early on it seems as if the aura of The Battleground is maybe lacking right now.

Week 4
Premiership Matchday 2
AC Valanari 1-2 Raynor City United
Kareen FC 1-0 Quel'Thalas FC
Gladerial United 1-3 Mar Sara FC
Club Valanora 1-4 Ibini FC
Club ESF 0-1 Wexax United
Hondo FC 1-1 Rolalas FC
Soldarian FC 0-5 SC Rinaldi
Char Sara FC 0-1 FC Capri


Hondo continues to struggle despite not having the fixture congestion that ICC play brings, this time being held at home by Rolalas. In Mar Sara, a second half goal from Perla Sierra was enough to lift the hammers over Club ESF, with the newly appointed captain rewarding that appointment early on. Quel'Thalas was not able to build off their surprise defeat of the Rockers and instead were brought down by Kareen at The Rose Garden by a first half goal from Ismael. United were lifted to victory in the form of a brace from Arango, with the attacking midfielder showing his worth as the side tries to shake off the early jitters.

Week 4 and 5 UICA results

Globe Cup Qualifying Round
(VAL) Raynor City United 3–3 a FC Atlantis (WRL) 3–1 0–2


United thought they had the tie wrapped up after a very good showing in the first leg, with Koarena, Çíânflöné, and Sáez all getting goals, though the side did concede late in the second half. However the side believed that they just needed to play their game in the Whirl Islands in order to advance into the group stage. Sadly that was not the case as FC Atlantis was able to break down their defense multiple times, grabbing two goals, and able to advance thanks to that late goal in the first leg, seeing United out of UICA competition in the very rare time before group play has started. While it is a huge blow, it may be beneficial to the side who seemed exhausted in the second half of last season. The fans though will not be quick to forget this staggering failure by what is supposed to be one of the biggest clubs in all of the footballing world.

Week 5
Premiership Matchday 3
Raynor City United 2-1 Kareen FC
AC Valanari 0-1 Gladerial United
Quel'Thalas FC 2-5 Club Valanora
Mar Sara FC 0-0 Club ESF
Ibini FC 5-4 Hondo FC
Wexax United 2-0 Soldarian FC
Rolalas FC 3-1 Char Sara FC
SC Rinaldi 1-0 FC Capri


After three games, only two sides remain perfect, and those are surprisingly SC Rinaldi and Wexax United of all sides. The Gunners got the more impressive of victories, in taking down the holders while Wexax was able to bottle up Soldarian's fierce new striker partnership en route to their own victory. United was able to do just enough to pip Kareen, while Hondo's poor form at the start continues as they were on the wrong side of a nine goal thriller in Ibini.

Hondo FC 6-0 Quel'Thalas FC
Soldarian FC 3-4 Mar Sara FC
Char Sara FC 0-1 Ibini FC
FC Capri 2-1 Wexax United
SC Rinaldi 2-0 Rolalas FC


Baysleef losing in the first round to lower tier Bree FC, Mar Sara FC being held scoreless in regulation but exploding for four goals in extra time, and United scoring eight were the only real highlights of the first round of the Cup, which saw nearly no major upsets of which to speak of, unfortunately for those fans of lower league football. United rolled that form into league play where they humilated their rivals at The White Fortress by the tune of four goals to nil, showcasing their offensive strength. The Hammers were finally beaten and it is no surprise when it came at the Typhoon, as a Sue Hackett brace was enough to see off the Hammers. Hondo maybe has found their form after drubbing Quel'Thalas in the heaviest league win thus far this season, while mysteriously Char Sara has yet to get a result in the league. Is this the season that the Inferno's long standing in the top division comes to an end?

Week 7
Premiership Matchday 5
Raynor City United 6-0 Club Valanora
Gladerial United 0-1 Club ESF
Kareen FC 0-1 Hondo FC
AC Valanari 0-1 Soldarian FC
Quel'Thalas FC 1-2 Char Sara FC
Mar Sara FC 2-1 FC Capri
Ibini FC 0-2 SC Rinaldi
Wexax United 0-1 Rolalas FC


We could talk about United's thrashing of Club Valanora at The Battleground but the real story is what is happening in Rinaldi as the Gunners are perfect with five wins from their first five, now defeating Ibini in Vyinta, with Lynch nabbing one goal and Noromiel grabbing the other to keep the Gunners at the pole position with nearly one fifth of the season now over. It is still early days, but could Rinaldi finally be among the title contention once more? WIth Capri and Ibini both not looking up to standard to start the season, there is a bit of a power vacuum and the Gunners do have titles in their history. After their initial troubles, it looks like Hondo to is getting their feat under them and Char Sara finally got a result, though winning at Quel'Thalas will not do much to comfort their fans worries about their survival hopes.

Week 8
Premiership Matchday 6
Club ESF 0-5 Raynor City United
Hondo FC 2-1 Club Valanora
Soldarian FC 2-0 Gladerial United
Char Sara FC 0-0 Kareen FC
FC Capri 5-1 AC Valanari
SC Rinaldi 1-1 Quel'Thalas FC
Rolalas FC 0-0 Mar Sara FC
Wexax United 1-2 Ibini FC


The perfect season comes to an end and in the most unlikely of ways, with the Gunners hosting Quel'Thalas at The Beachfront. Lynch's first half goal looked to have been enough to keep the streak going until Orval found the back of the net against the run of the play just before the hour mark. Thus we have to talk about United who have won in dominating fashion for the third straight match and have a staggering plus fourteen goal differential through just six matches. If this is the form that the squad is going to be in now that they do not have to worry about dealing with ICC fixtures, the rest of the league needs to be on the lookout for the wrecking ball of their attack.

Week 9

Rolalas FC 4-1 Gladerial United
Wexax United 4-1 Kareen FC
Ibini FC 4-2 AC Valanari
Mar Sara FC 1-1 Quel'Thalas FC


Well United's good form came to a swift halt, though the level of their competition rising probably has more to do with that than the commentator's curse with playing against Hondo and then a Raynor City derby at Hellgate. Unfortunately the pair of defeats lets Rinaldi open up a five point gap on the Rockers with their results and Ibini's pair of wins has the Vyintanese club slide into second at nearly the one third mark of the season. The Twilight are propping up the table with one a single victory to their name and it seems as if their predicted relegation is likely to come to form, while Char Sara's unexplained victory against Hondo sees them crawl out of the bottom for the time being. Is it a case of merely a bad start of signs of a trouble campaign? With Wexax United and Mar Sara both quietly collecting results, the race at the top is heated but so is that one at the bottom, which should make for some good viewing throughout the entirety of the season.

The less we talk about this UICA the better, for Vanorian clubs have severely underperformed and that the Flames barely make it into the Globe Cup knockout rounds is a real testament to how poor Vanorian clubs have been in the UICA this season. It is quite evident that the squads are going to have to do some major retooling during the next transfer window if they wish to remain rated among the best leagues in the world. As it stands, Mar Sara still has a chance to do Valanora proud but one should not get their hopes up for the Flames to come up big given their history of choking away at the biggest of occasions.

Week 10
Premiership Matchday 9
Raynor City United 1-0 Char Sara FC
Soldarian FC 0-0 FC Capri
Hondo FC 2-0 SC Rinaldi
Club ESF 2-1 Rolalas FC
Club Valanora 0-2 Wexax United
Gladerial United 0-4 Ibini FC
Kareen FC 0-0 Mar Sara FC
AC Valanari 3-1 Quel'Thalas FC


United got back on track with a victory over the Inferno thanks to a timely strike from Tájö Çíânflöné in the first half. Soldarian had strong showing at home against the Typhoon, giving both sides just a point in a match one of them needed to win if they wanted to keep pace with the leaders. Speaking of, there is a new team at the top as the Gunners loss at Hondo combined with Ibini running rampant at The White Fortress has the Islanders move into first. Is this the start of Rinaldi's drift back towards the pack, Ibini's march towards a title, or maybe a bit of both? Wexax and United getting wins means that there is not much separation but we have seen stranger things happen.

Week 11

AC Valanari 4-0 Kareen FC


It was a weekend for making a statement across the league, as several clubs showed us something that we were not expecting. When the title holders saw the match hosting United in the first half of the season, they knew they had the advantage, however they squandered it completely as United's sheer class shone through. Arango with a brace and Sáez with the third saw United leave the island as victors and feeling confident about themselves, especially when the out of town scoreboard showed that Ibini had been felled by Club ESF at home. Nine goals in Mar Sara saw the crowd entertained and able to go home happy with the Flames emerging as the late winners, while Gladerial beat Quel'Thalas in the battle of relegation contenders. Lastly the big shock was in Rinaldi, where for the first time all season the Inferno looked like a club with its storied history, as they smashed the Gunners for three while keeping a clean sheet.

Finally a mammoth upset, as Mar Sara FC traveled to Moria and somehow were toppled one to nothing by the semi-pro side. Remember that the Flames needed extra time just to get through the first round so this should not be shocking but still, when the likes of Capri, Ibini, and United are strolling through their cup matches and the Flames have fallen victim, it is huge news. Quel'Thalas FC joined them as Premiership sides being ousted early in the Silver Cup, though they lost to a League One side compared to whom the Conference Premier outfit that Mar Sara did.

United was unable to keep the momentum going as the Gunners refound some of their early season form in their trip to The Battleground. Goals from Lynch and Aldalithe enough to edge the encounter despite a lovely strike from Ilglerdiriel Lithvathar that opened the scoring. Ibini took advantage, furthering their gap at the top after they went into Hellgate and putting Soldarian to the sword. Those at the Raynor Memorial will be wanting their money back after Hondo and Mar Sara battled each other to a nil all draw.

A week after not being able to have any offensive output, the Flames roll out the Inferno with nine goals to the good, leaving Char Sara absolutely reeling. Six players for Mar Sara got on the scoresheet, though it seems that they stole most of the goals from the rest of the league as Wexax United and Rinaldi played to a nil all draw, and United had to have a late goal from Oani Moralziia on a set piece to save the day. Back to back draws keep Gladerial in the relegation zone but now they have become level on points with Club Valanora and Kareen, who both have had inconsistent results thus far.

I don't know what they are doing in Moria but it is working quite well, as one round after toppling Mar Sara FC at home, they did the same thing to United, though they needed extra time to take down the giants of Vanorian football. While RCU was definitely playing a second string side, trying to concentrate on gaining ground in the league, it still was supposed to be enough to defeat the Conference Premier side. However that plan came undone as Moria held the line and finally took the chance that was given to them. Other than that stunning upset to begin the round, the rest of the round played out as expected, though Capri did need penalties to see off Samarga in Vyinta.

After the disgrace of losing to a non-league side last week in the Cup, United comes back on the power of Tájö Çíânflöné to defeat the Hammers and pull into a tie at the top of the the table after Ibini was felled by the Blues just a few miles away from United's own match in the capital. The Gunners were not about to let United go alone at the top and a Nienna Eärfalas goal was the difference between them and the Flames. Hondo vented some of its season's frustration against Gladerial, with the Twilight looking ever the relegation candidates that many made them out to be. Nothing is quite as shocking as the puzzling scoreline from Capri, as Quel'Thalas has taken another scalp from one of the big boys of the division and in an impressive fashion to. I don't know if the Typhoon thought Quel'Thalas was simply going to roll over for them but they were schellacked by a score of seven to one and their hopes to retain the Premier crown are stating to fade away.

United showcased its depth and determination to take the title in a pair of pivotal top five matches over the week, holding the Islanders to a draw before coming back home to the Battleground and mercilessly tearing the Flames apart with a ruthless attack. Ibini and Rinaldi both fade at the poorest of times as it seems that perhaps they lack depth to truly compete week in and week out with the Rockers. Gladerial manages to climb out of the bottom two thanks to a win over Char Sara, leaving Club Valanora to prop up the table after a pair of two to nil defeats in the week. That Quel'Thalas is not in the bottom two is amazing, as they once again go to a top five team's home stadium and look completely dominant, this time it is Ibini who is felled. Perhaps they are better than the individual parts, the second half definitely will test their mettle and desire to stay afloat in the top flight, as well as the big clubs desire to keep United from running away with the league crown as too often has been the case.

Mar Sara was simply dreadful against Atlantis, who eliminates their second Vanorian side this season, and thus ends Vanorian participation in the UICA this season with a whimper. However Ibini and Capri both showed well in the other ICC tournament, though Ibini drawing Real Azuris in the Cygnus Semifinals definitely presents a difficult challenge. For Capri, they will be taking on Chromatik opposition in the the AOCL quarterfinals, looking to become the first Vanorian team outside of United to lift the regional crown.

Week 18
Premership Matchday 16
Quel'Thalas FC 0-2 Raynor City United
AC Valanari 0-0 Mar Sara FC
Kareen FC 4-1 Ibini FC
Gladerial United 3-0 Wexax United
Club Valanora 2-1 Rolalas FC
Club ESF 2-0 SC Rinaldi
Hondo FC 4-1 FC Capri
Soldarian FC 1-0 Char Sara FC


United gets revenge for their opening day defeat against Quel'Thalas and keeps the motor going at the top of the table with goals from Durosa and Arango. Meanwhile Hondo stomped all over Capri's remaining hopes of getting into title contention with an overdue offensive outpouring. Surprisingly the Gunners were defeated by Club ESF and the Hammers were thwalloped at the White Fortress by a Twilight side looking to not be relegated.

Week 19
Premership Matchday 17
Raynor City United 1-1 AC Valanari
Quel'Thalas FC 1-3 Kareen FC
Mar Sara FC 3-1 Gladerial United
Ibini FC 1-1 Club Valanora
Wexax United 1-1 Club ESF
Rolalas FC 3-3 Hondo FC
SC Rinaldi 1-0 Soldarian FC
FC Capri 1-0 Char Sara FC


It was a day of few goals and fewer wins across the league as half the matches ended up in a draw, including both United and Hondo unable to find victories to take advantage of the other dropping their points. The best viewing though had to come from the capital as the Blues battled the Owls to evens in the six goal thriller, while the Gunners pipped the Soldars at the Battlefront with a second half goal from their talisman of Fionn Lynch.

Week 20
Premership Matchday 18
Kareen FC 0-0 Raynor City United
Gladerial United 1-0 AC Valanari
Club Valanora 2-0 Quel'Thalas FC
Club ESF 2-4 Mar Sara FC
Hondo FC 1-1 Ibini FC
Soldarian FC 0-2 Wexax United
Char Sara FC 1-1 Rolalas FC
FC Capri 0-6 SC Rinaldi


What a weird week, as once against Hondo and United were unable to find victories but instead were held to draws, though Hondo could at least say they were playing against stiff competition as they were up against the Islanders. Couple that with Rinaldi's back to back victories and now the Gunners have climbed into a tie for second with the Owls, both sitting two points back of United. Mar Sara closed their gap to three points after braces from Haevathae and Ealomiel lifted them over their city rivals. After putting up a brave fight for most of the season, Quel'Thalas has fallen back into the relegation spots after they were unable to get a result in Gladerial against the Warriors.

Week 21
Premership Matchday 19
Raynor City United 6-1 Gladerial United
Kareen FC 6-0 Club Valanora
AC Valanari 2-3 Club ESF
Quel'Thalas FC 0-0 Hondo FC
Mar Sara FC 2-0 Soldarian FC
Ibini FC 2-2 Char Sara FC
Wexax United 0-0 FC Capri
Rolalas FC 0-0 SC Rinaldi


Now this is the sort of performance from United that makes you hopeful that the showings in the UICA preliminary rounds were just an aberration rather than the real state of the club. However you can not deny that United does get up for the games against Gladerial, with their history, and finding ways to humilate the once proud club has become something of a hobby, with this six to one victory surely going in among those great moments. Quel'Thalas took another unexpected point in holding Hondo at home, which let Mar Sara take sole possession of second place after they were able to upstage the Soldars in Artani, while Kareen shocked many with their six to nil drubbing of Club Valanora, an offensive outpouring unheard of from the Jungle Cats.

Valanari FC 1-0 AC Hartdale

FC Capri 3-0 RC Jumangas
Turmondale United 0-0(0-1 AET) Rolalas FC
Suax United 4-2 Turbani City
Straightdale FC 3-3(4-3 AET) AS Zul'Daratar


This was the round where it all kicked off, with numerous matches going to extra time and several Premiership clubs finally falling victim to their lower league opponents. Semi-pro club Purple Nova Ytt went into Gladerial and upset Club Valanora in the penalty shootout, while Inter Gladerial stunned the Hammers just a few miles down the way. The Twilight also won in Gladerial, taking out Soldarian FC, which has to be a nice moral boosting victory for a side who is currently just hoping to avoid the drop back into the second tier.

Week 23
Premership Matchday 20
Club Valanora 1-3 Raynor City United
Club ESF 1-0 Gladerial United
Hondo FC 2-2 Kareen FC
Soldarian FC 2-0 AC Valanari
Char Sara FC 1-4 Quel'Thalas FC
FC Capri 1-3 Mar Sara FC
SC Rinaldi 0-1 Ibini FC
Rolalas FC 0-1 Wexax United


As we reach the two-thirds mark of the second, it has become clear that this will likely come down to a two horse race for the title, with Mar Sara and United having risen above the rest of the league. While Club ESF, Hondo FC, and SC Rinaldi are all within touching distance of the top two sides, they have not shown the same sort of resolve that the Rockers and Flames have to make you believe that they will challenge for the title, with the Owls drawing the Jungle Cats and the Gunners losing at home to the Islanders while Mar Sara and United just keep on their winning ways.

Week 24 & 25 ICC Results

AOCL QuarterFinals
(CMT) Tihon 2–3 FC Capri (VAL) 2-1 0-2
Cygnus SemiFinals
(COS) Real Azuris 2-0 Ibini FC (VAL) 2-0 0-0


Ibini put up a good fight but ultimately the Cosumarite powerhouse was too much for the Islanders to overcome, as well as their first leg defeat. However they can hold their heads high, regaining some Vanorian honor and respect after the way the UICA cycle went. That respect can be furthered after a Sue Hackett brace on either side of halftime in the Hatire Memorial saw the Typhoon overcome their first leg defeat and advance to the AOCL Semifinals, where they will be facing Audioslav opposition, traditionally a very tricky encounter for Vanorian clubs. Can the Typhoon show that last season's domestic title was no joke, despite their poor league form, or will the Audioslavs get the last laugh?

Week 24
Premership Matchday 21
Raynor City United 0-0 Club ESF

Kareen FC 2-2 Char Sara FC

Quel'Thalas FC 3-0 SC Rinaldi
Mar Sara FC 1-0 Rolalas FC
Ibini FC 2-2 Wexax United


If Mar Sara does come up to pip the title from Raynor City, then they will have to thank their city rivals with Club ESF holding the Rockers at the Battleground, frustrating the home fans hopes to further separate themselves from the rest of the league. Quel'Thalas surprise victory over the Gunners lifts them to eleventh, not likely a position that they can hold on to, but it makes their survival far more plausible than it was looking two weeks ago.

Week 25
Premership Matchday 22
Hondo FC 2-0 Raynor City United
Soldarian FC 1-2 Club ESF
Char Sara FC 1-3 Club Valanora
FC Capri 2-3 Gladerial United
SC Rinaldi 0-0 Kareen FC
Rolalas FC 1-2 AC Valanari
Wexax United 1-1 Quel'Thalas FC
Ibini FC 1-0 Mar Sara FC


Hold the phones as Ibini and Hondo have just rewritten the script to the last stage of the season with their massive victories over Mar Sara and United respectively. Both sides were the benefactors of playing in front of the home support, though as United could tell that has not meant a whole deal this season, but their victories have compressed the top of the table and brought them as well as Club ESF back into the title hunt with just eight matches remaining. While United still leads, their lead at the top has been reduced to a point and Club ESF, who is in fourth, sit just four points back. Will United have the title seemingly stolen from them again or will the Navy Men show why they are considered to be one of the best clubs in all of the footballing world?

United losing a Raynor City derby when Idoya Casillas slotted home his goal in the eighty-third minute has seen the Rockers slip all the way into third after Hondo and Mar Sara both comfortably won their matches on the weekend. This has to have a very bad sense of deja vu for the Rockers supporters, with it feeling just like things played out last season. However there is still time for the side to rectify this mini slide and climb back into the top but they will have to hope that their rivals stumble along the way as well. Char Sara on the other hand seems quite the shadow of the former glorious club they once were and seem destined for the drop.

Hondo has to be dreaming of a potential double as they advance in the Cup, though they have their league form dented in their weekend trip to the Battleground. At this point in the Cup, it is not a matter of how you win, simply winning, which we saw with another four of the matches going into extra time, with FC Wexax once more finding ways to advance. Ibini and Rinaldi both advanced well, making it a rather pleasing weekend for the Gunners faithful, though the Flames will be the ones smiling the most as they overtook the Owls at the top of the table and Char Sara getting a rare victory and against United no less. I am not sure there is enough matches left for the Rockers to come back and we may see back to back seasons without United lifting a trophy, which is a very rare thing these days.

Kareen FC 3-1 AC Valanari


Oh the twisted tales that we weave as just when United seem to be sinking while the Flames and Owls rising up, their fortunes reversed in a very pivotal matchday. Nine goals were scored between the Typhoon and Rockers and it was a blast from Arango in the eighty-third that gave United their fifth and the winner to see them rise back to joint first after Mar Sara and Hondo both lost in underwhelming fashions. This last few matches of the season have it all riding now, who can capture the lightning of form in a bottle and ride it to a title and who will be left with a bitter taste in their mouths when the dust finally settles on the season?

Going into Audioslavia and getting a result has never been an easy task for Vanorian clubs, something about the northeast of the region just seems to mystify the clubs. However that is exactly what FC Capri was able to do, with Sue Hackett once again proving her worth in those critical moments. The return leg saw the Audioslavs get an early goal to level the tie but just before the hour mark Hackett set up Gaethelen who slotted the ball home into the gaping net and put the Typhoon up for good. Now they are on to the Final and look to produce something only Raynor City United has done, win an AOCL crown for Valanora. They will be facing off against another unexpected finalist but giant in the game, as the Osarius giant of Hastmead Diamante awaits for the battle of who is the best club in Atlantian Oceania.

Valanari FC 3-4 Hondo FC
FC Wexax 5-1 Ibini FC


United's claim to the top stays true as Sáez powers them through the Gunners in Rinaldi, though they are not alone at the top. That is because Mar Sara continues to win, as this time the gauntlet was laid before them with fellow title contender in Hondo coming to Artani to see who would be the club to challenge the Rockers in the last stretch. The winning goal came from the most unlikely of sources, as Stef was able to send in a diving header on a corner just after the second half had begun, one of the rare goals from the Flames backline but an important one, as the only thing separating the Flames and Rockers is United's slightly better goal differential. In the Cup, all the favorites advanced, outside Ibini being stunned at Wexax, though Rolalas needed extra time to take out the semi-pro Nova squad. Hondo may be out of the title race now but they still have hopes of winning a trophy this season.

Week 30
Premiership Matchday 27
Raynor City United 2-1 Rolalas FC
SC Rinaldi 0-0 Wexax United
FC Capri 1-0 Ibini FC
Char Sara FC 0-2 Mar Sara FC
Soldarian FC 1-4 Quel'Thalas FC
Hondo FC 3-1 AC Valanari
Club ESF 4-1 Kareen FC
Club Valanora 2-0 Gladerial United


With all the top three winning, it is becoming a question of whether Mar Sara will be able to score enough goals to catch up to United's goal difference to really give the Rockers a scare. United did have a scare in that the Raynor City derbies are among the more unpredictable matches but they were able to rise above the challenge of the Blues at the end of the day, which puts Rolalas in the middle of the relegation roulette as five clubs fight to avoid being the two who get the automatic drop into the Star League.

Week 31
Premiership Matchday 28
Wexax United 0-2 Raynor City United

Quel'Thalas FC 1-1 FC Capri
AC Valanari 2-1 Char Sara FC
Kareen FC 4-1 Soldarian FC
Gladerial United 1-4 Hondo FC
Club Valanora 1-1 Club ESF


Sáez' brace against the Hammers and the Flames holding serve against the Gunners at Artani keeps the tension high among the top two as they seem keen to take this bout all the way to the final day of the season. Both clubs, as well as Hondo and Club ESF were able to secure their spots in the UICA for next season, though which tournament that each will enter is still yet to be decided while the fifth spot remains upon for grabs with five clubs within two points of fifth and looking to get that international reward money.

Week 32
Silver Cup Semifinals
SC Rinaldi 1-0 Rolalas FC
Hondo FC 2-3 FC Wexax


All of Hondo's hopes, which even saw them dreaming of a potential domestic double, have fallen completely out of reach in the last three week, with the Knights marching into Hondo and beating Hondo at their own game of offensive fireworks. Elsewhere, a goal in the fifty-third minute by Torbjörn Jorgensen was the only difference between the Gunners and Blues, with Rinaldi now looking good for a piece of silverware, as they have avoided Hondo in the Final. Will they make this a season to remember or will FC Wexax spoil the party for the Premiership side?

Week 33
Premiership Matchday 29
Raynor City United 2-0 Ibini FC
Wexax United 0-1 Mar Sara FC
Rolalas FC 2-1 Quel'Thalas FC
SC Rinaldi 2-1 AC Valanari
FC Capri 2-1 Kareen FC
Char Sara FC 1-0 Gladerial United
Soldarian FC 3-0 Club Valanora
Hondo FC 1-1 Club ESF


Well Mar Sara was hoping that the Islanders would do them a favor and take down United as they have been known to do, however it was not to be as both United and Mar Sara won their matches, leaving both sides tied on points heading into the final match, where they will face each other in Mar Sara. Betting money says to back the Flames to find a way to pip the Rockers with the home field advantage but gut instinct says that it is better to back United as home field has not been that much of an advantage this season. Regardless, both sides did secure their berth into the Champions' Cup for next season, meaning that not only will the title be on the line next Sunday but who will enter into the group stage and which club will have to face the peril of the preliminary round. Amazingly, no side has been doomed to relegation either and there is all to play for at the bottom of the table as well in this last matchday, which promises to be full of intrigue regardless of what side you support.

Final And Review

Week 34
Premiership Matchday 30
Mar Sara FC 0-0 Raynor City United
Quel'Thalas FC 1-2 Ibini FC
AC Valanari 3-0 Wexax United
Kareen FC 4-1 Rolalas FC
Gladerial United 1-4 SC Rinaldi
Club Valanora 3-0 FC Capri
Club ESF 2-2 Char Sara FC
Hondo FC 4-4 Soldarian FC


It was an anticlimatic end to the season as United set up shop with ten men behind the ball and dared the Flames to find a way to break through their backline. Despite all of their attacking talent, the Flames were unable to penetrate that stalwart defensive effort, with the game ending in a nil nil draw that sees United return as the champions of the Premiership. It was not one of their more beautiful campaigns and one that looked like had been lost with a month left in the season, yet in the end the Navy Men managed to emerge atop of the heap once more. The side is sure to be looking to strengthen during the summer window, as well as numerous other clubs, as they no doubt want to give a better account of themselves once the UICA begins again. SC Rinaldi's win over Gladerial secures them a fifth place finish but does not secure their berth into the Globe Cup, however they can secure that with a win next Sunday in the Silver Cup Final. That loss for the Twilight however was nearly disastrous, but Ibini getting a late winner in Quel'Thalas relieves them of that disaster and instead sees the Green-Blues and the Inferno relegated to the Star League, while Rolalas will have to go into the playoff to secure their standing in the top flight.

Week 35
Silver Cup Final
@ Hatire Memorial, Capri

SC Rinaldi 0-0(1-1 AET)[2-1 PKs] FC Wexax


This marks three straight seasons that a Premiership side took on a non top flight side in the Final and for the third straight season it was the top flight side that eventually emerged victorious. The Knights gave the Gunners a sight, even finding a way to equalize the match after the Gunners had taken a lead in extra time. However when it came to the skill of spot kick taking, the Gunners would emerge as the victors in a very ugly shootout, with the keepers being more the stars than the takers. With the victory, the Gunners secure that spot in the Globe Cup, ironic given that they finished in the same spot in the league but had to rely on this victory to ensure their progression.

Week 36
AOCL Final
@ Hatire Memorial, Capri

(VAL)	FC Capri	p 0–0	Hastmead Diamante	(OSR)	(3–2 pen.)


It was one of the more ugly games of the season and not one that will be rewatched by many outside of Capri, however the Typhoon endured a hundred twenty minutes plus of gridlock before finally making Hastmead Diamante pay the penalty for not getting a goal during the run of play. In doing so, the Typhoon are the first Vanorian club outside United to lift the AOCL and are granted a berth into the group stage of next years' competition, alongside United who earned their berth in the league performance. While their league form was indifferent, they showed that their title last season was no joke with the way they performed in the regional tournament, crafting history with this victory.

EBA Season 20,073


Valanari continues to be the dominant team in the EBA, though Raynor City will feel like they had done enough this season to nab the title away from their rivals in the north. However the HIghlanders combination of great shooting and timely defensive stops was the difference down the stretch that allowed Valanari to sneak past the Monarchs and into the champions slot once more. The fight for the other two spots in the IUBC was hotly contested as well, with five teams all in contention inb the last week, though eventually it was the familiar face of Capri that would emerge to take third, by a whisker. The surprise though that it was Enyenora that came in fourth, the first time a team outside of the traditional lands of Valanora, pre the first of two major expansions of our nations' border, has managed to qualify for a major international tournament. Could this be the start of seeing the expansionist lands finally making their mark in the Vanorian sporting landscape or is this just a minor aberration and normalcy will return next season? Eyes will be cast on the IUBC to find out not just how Vanorian teams continue to stack up against their international competition but also to see if this is truly the coming of an age for the lands outside the old Inner and Outer Elven Kingdoms.

Season 20,073 Preview


Lineups are listed right to left where applicable

Image
AC Valanari
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Polennoion Mitheththor | Stadium: Duran Palace (51,000)
Last Season: 11th | Predicted Finish: 10th
Starting XI (4-4-2 diamond): Belltarion Nartalhûn; Parrathdon Aeramiel, Glenniadien Auglithlhûn, Bermornon Lantaina, Rûien Dlaranil; Melfinion Yrauelon, Sithandon Lantathas; Gondien Faerondaerl; Morthudon Talmirlhûn, Galenmoruth Taletheil

Their first season back in the topflight and the Young Blues did what they do best, win the games they are supposed to at the Palace and then spring the surprise upset on a few of the big boys when they least expect it. As always, it is something of an attractive football and the roots of bringing players through the system, but that has never been the question with the Young Blues. It has always been about finding a way to capitalize on that emerging talent, which history says is unlikely in the most pivotal of games, leaning the club always somewhere around the midtable and that seems likely with the squad now.

Image
Club ESF
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Darantion Shayaar | Stadium: Donna Cathedral (60,000)
Last Season: 4th | Predicted Finish: 9th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Llepandorton Rololond; Herhiliel Telraiian, Merimoron Nalllithe, Kathanon Berthanthor, Gwilsiniel Runtandar; Tatolron Ondotaur, Tûrin Kiraiseer, Filthenraya Haeeme; Tidurthal Yraueme; Ciredollra Narethlal, Allassthor Lanalvaar

Looking to prove the doubters wrong, the Blues were able to fight their way into 4th and the Globe Cup positioning last season, given a renewed sense of belief among the board and fans alike that perhaps the club is cut out for title runs. However that belief was not able to be translated into spending power to get some of the better foreign talent to take a chance and a drift back towards the midtable is probably on the cards for the Blues.

Image
Club Valanora
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Polenmáran Tanendrin | Stadium: Tiradir (30,000)
Last Season: 12th | Predicted Finish: 11th
Starting XI (4-4-2): Voronthil Taltauré; Círthoria Aldalond, Úthladiel Elendhen, Maerion Hathalmyr, Bregdorion Lasseththar; Alsidhóle Feldhrinthar, Côfwaiion Nhatholsel, Aerlariel Gatanar, Rochenion Ondosumé; Úpaddan Haetauré, Dauidrendoliel Galonren

With three straight seasons in the Premiership, the Warriors are starting to look worthy of their moniker and being able to maintain a presence in the topflight, for that is really what this squad seems to be, a collection of scrappy players who are defying all anaylsts and preconceptions about their talent levels. It is only a shame that they currently do not look like they have aspirations to be anything more than that.

Image
FC Capri
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Daersirien Undolond | Stadium: Hatire Memorial (60,000)
Last Season: 8th | Predicted Finish: 5th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Hothion Feltatheth; Tamlassas Celetaar, Erutalion Toraethil, Erynron Talnae, Earyaleryn Gwalinde; Filwame Omasas, Gwestanna Nhataseer, Celemerun Haanial; Gwenordorion Mithtata; Image Linn-Katrin Hairenbyrne, Image Sue Hackett

The Typhoon were expected to take a step back after the loss of one of the two strikers that had lifted them to such great heights just a season before, however not many had foreseen them completely falling out of the UICA spots. That failure has seen the acquisition of the young Cosumar strike of Hairenbyrne, a former U18 national product, and put directly into the starting line up alongside Hackett. While the partnership will need time to grow, pre season friendlies have shown a budding chemistry and one that will likely see the Typhoon be once more among the top 5.

Image
Gladerial United
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Lathweldorien Naranar | Stadium: The White Fortress (70,000)
Last Season: 13th | Predicted Finish: 14th
Starting XI (4-4-2): Elsiróle Isiliyaas; Tharthonnen Oreth, Athpantdrach Taltauré, Taniethon Aeradhen, Daernathiel Kiglinaeil; Maerahiniel Lassmireil, Nibenthâron Gwarina, Vanya Tathtauré, Eruanion Telethina; Seregethia Talnae, Imluanion Shadilindal

Wrong once, shame on you. Wrong twice, shame on me. Thusly, I am not going to predict that the Twilight are doomed for the drop no matter how much I really want to write them off as being for sure in the relegation, though that doesn't mean I can not write them into falling into the playoff. Honestly, their survival is something of an enigma, especially given a far better Char Sara FC squad was relegated last season. Maybe it is just bit of nostalgic luck and tradition that keeps this ship afloat but I am not going to bet against them now.

Image
Hondo FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Melimost Cromsumé | Stadium: Raynor Memorial (40,000)
Last Season: 3rd | Predicted Finish: 4th
Starting XI (3-3-1-3): Bardhudon Vanlond; Adanrond Kevaanthor, Ainglad Gwavaul, Suiarond Orloth; Neslaercan Berethil, Image Issac Holt, Sellan Teltaththor; Image Angelo Farías; Image Lucy Curren, Taurmárion Ealoelon, Rimedur Shadirthor

A moment for Diana Cooper who served Hondo admirably, but her time had come, and the torch has now been passed on to a new leading lady for the owls in the way of Schottia born strike Lucy Curren. It is the first Schottia national in the Premiership and they will have a lot to live up to if they are to keep the Owls in the title contention, given that United seems to have that wrapped up even before the first kick of the ball. Holt is getting up there in years as well and this may well be his last season as a striker, while Angelo will not to go the whole prime of his career without a real go at the title. If the Owls are to do anything, it needs to be sooner rather than later.

Image
Ibini FC
Kits: Home & Away

Something of a season to forget for the Islanders who someone find themselves completely without international football at the end of the season, which is a true blow to the ego of the largest Vyintanese club. With Samarga back in the Premiership, it offers up more opportunities for Vyinta derbies, as well as slightly reducing the crazy travel for Ibini but also gives them a bit more stiff competition to keep most of the island's population as their supporters. Add in what should be a challenge to finish in the top 4 once more and maybe even give United a run for their money with the talents of Fresco, Elam, and Norovathar, it should make for an interesting season for the Islanders.

Coming into their own over the past two seasons, the Jungle Cats are looking good on the money for being survivors and maybe even in a player in a potential Globe Cup bid with the Premiership having been awarded an additional spot in the the Champions' Cup. They are not great in either attack nor defense and that little bit lack of class is probably what will keep them a prowling midtable side that seems to be missing just one key player from being something greater.

Mar Sara FC
Kits: Home, Away, & Third

The new kits and badge with the added optimism around the club seemed to do just the trick with the Flames nearly pulling United off of their throne last season, losing out on just mere goal difference to the capital club. With a surprisingly stout defensive unit and an attack that is up there with the best of them, the Flames certainly look a viable title threat not just in the league but in the Champions' Cup as well. Can Stef and Nerenn be the difference here in the prime of their careers and bring silverware back to Mar Sara?

Raynor City United
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Vanaina Talglinaelen | Stadium: The Battleground (78,000)
Last Season: 1st | Predicted Finish: 1st
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Image Macron Abbott; Megilcion Tantholil, Image Corella da Silva, Image Oani Moralziia, Image Alexandra Saravakos; Aintôrthea Durosa, Image Timi'sala Koarena, Ilglerdiriel Lithvathar; Image Cristian Arango; Image Tájö Çíânflöné, Image Nacho

Sáez rides off into the sunset with another title and having had a hand in winning it and several others during his tenure among the Rockers. In his stead steps up a pair of strikers, in the form of the Nepharim Alysia Stokes and the Cosumarite Nacho. Being the younger of the two and with more promise, Nacho is tipped to start the majority of the games but as history has shown, United does like to rely on its depth and rotation for the many competitions that they are in and Stokes is likely to get plenty of playing time, especially if the younger striker struggles to find form. Also going away from last season was the legendary Audioslav keeper Kennedy, with a young Qasden keeper thrown into the spotlight. United has all the skill needed to win the title, but can their new players take to their roles or will the transitional bug creep up on them?

Rolalas FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Gliria Kilothtinu | Stadium: The West Wall (41,000)
Last Season: 14th | Predicted Finish: 12th
Starting XI (3-4-3 Diamond): Anathiaiel Elersumé; Balatulcien Aldalond, Rendrannwen Gathalthar, Renmariiel Faladel; Belltherdon Cularin; Medyavwen Undoelon, Aranyan Lithtauré; Filtiiadhya Elerdel; Dorthaagorthon Shamirmae, Arandil Dlartholryl, Edenis Taleme

Jaime Kuu's first managed club just managed to make it back to the Premiership after a daring date last season in the Promotion-Relegation Playoff after a bit of a lackluster season with no real chance to find form. For fans who wanted to see the capital lose a little bit of influence over the game, the fact that Rolalas managed to survive and looks good for it again this year has to be a bit of an annoyance. Rolalas for all their lack of star names though seem to show up in the capital city derbies and have on the occasion shown a bit of form to even threaten a UICA spot, though this does not seem that sort of year.

Image
Samarga United
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Kiircon Mithyaelen | Stadium: Meadow Park (18,000)
Last Season: 1st (Star League) | Predicted Finish: 15th
Starting XI (4-4-2): Faecinidir Lardilineil; Sidhwë Augdragonel, Saeldur Cromviel, Merilima Talron, Arathîreldë Ealoron; Saelgos Birlinde, Istumerun Crommiel, Risswë Nallvir, Anadiliel Laralthar; Verthandien Elerelwa, Randost Lithtaur

Samarga's presence back in the top flight is definitely a boon for Vyintanese football, with two clubs now once more plying their trade in the top division of the nation. However like Straightdale, whom they promoted with, there is nothing that stands out about their roster and silly sentimental notions will not get you very far in football. While they were quite a dominant force in the Star League last year, that dominance has rarely translated well into the top flight for promoted teams, unless they manage to get a few foreigners to sign up, which Samarga hasn't been able to.

SC Rinaldi
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Fëanor Nénharma | Stadium: The Beachfront (43,000)
Last Season: 5th | Predicted Finish: 8th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Nienna Sáralondë; Tamuríl Amandil, Image Torbjörn Jorgensen, Lenwë Tinúviel, Urúvwë Malethina; Eslimiel Noromiel, Nienna Eärfalas, Halateliel Faelandalan; Image Camilla Priest; Image Alyssa Souter, Image Fionn Lynch

If one Brenecia striker is good, then two is better, right? That seems to be the thinking for the Gunners as they brought in Alyssa Souter to partner Lynch and the Nepharim Priest to play in behind the the pair and provide service. On paper it seems like it should be a good fit but there is a weird feeling that this experiment by the Gunners is doomed to fail, given the strength of the clubs around them. However no one had really expected Capri to turn around and nab the title two years ago and the Gunners have had that sort of response before to adversity, so they will be thinking it is their time. For me, this experiment by Rinaldi will either be a huge boon or a major bust, with my gut saying a bust.

Soldarian FC
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Omani Rios | Stadium: Hellgate (54,000)
Last Season: 7th | Predicted Finish: 6th
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Hothborn Ondovir; Idhnibon Nellotheil, Image Garwyn Varney, Tandion Aeraglinaeth, Aernoruionion Birrina; Vanaônon Werdhrinlhûn, Berdëmiel Nardhrinonel, Tanmaeduil Lanethlhûn; Airaaias Cromvathar; Image Kunigunde Almerich, Image Keled Petheô

Perhaps as a sign of the times, both Osarius players find themselves out of their starting spot, with only Casillas able to keep their spot on the roster. For the Soldars, failing to make the UICA competitions last season was a devastating blow and one that they were wanting to correct quickly. Casillas gives way to the versatile Nepharim Almerich, who in a pinch can also play out on the left wing if the squad goes with a single striker formation. At the back, Varney is young but seems to have potential, though one would expect him to be slowly bled in through the entirety of the season, however Rios will be counting on both to turn up in the big matches to get the Soldars back into UICA contention.

Straightdale FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Thanlaithon Nhalothdar | Stadium: Red Fence (39,000)

The Knights emerge back into the Premiership with an awkward squad of overachievers and underrated performers alike. I would like to believe that the once fairly substantial club could find solid footing in their Premiership, but as recent seasons have showed in ample supple, sentimental feelings for a club and their history is no substitute for the talent and even luck needed to survive and thrive in the cutthroat business that is professional football.

Wexax United
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Bellvanton Lanyamyr | Stadium: Castle de Mot (49,000)
Last Season: 9th | Predicted Finish: 7th

Giving Sierra the captaincy did not quite have the intended effect of getting the Hammers back into the UICA spots and instead the Hammers had something of an enigma of a season, finding form very difficult to maintain especially during the latter stretches of the season. While it is not the most convincing of moves, the Brenecia keeper of Petterson is supposed to give visions of legends past for the Hammers and give them the renewed belief and energy that a top 6 position is not too tall of an ask for one of the most defensive outfits the Premiership has.

Season 20,073
Part 1

Week 0


Globe Cup First Prelim Round
(BJK) 1898 Odena 0–1 SC Rinaldi (VAL) 0–1 0–0
SBCC First Prelim Round
(VAL) FC Longview 2–0 Bardney Sports (COL) 1–0 1–0


It was an unconvincing start to the season for the Gunners as they were unable to convincingly dispose of a newcomer club from Bojikstan, which seems to suggest that the early portents of the experiment being doomed to fail being true. Lynch's goal in the away leg though was the difference and the side will be looking to try and gather some form heading into the next round and for the start of the season. Meanwhile the Foxes were comfortable winners, using a stout defensive tactic to see themselves as one nil winners in both legs, taking a bit of pride despite having missed out on promotion last season but still getting some UICA football and money for their efforts.

Week 1


Champions' Cup Second Prelim Round
(CMT) Anomalies 3–4 Mar Sara FC (VAL) 2–1 1–3 (aet)
Globe Cup Second Prelim Round
(VAL) SC Rinaldi 2–6 Nilmenas City (SPA) 2–2 0–4
SBCC Second Prelim Round
(VAL) FC Longview 0–1 Lhor (CMT) 0–1 0–0
(VAL) Straightdale FC 3–7 Lake Cenial Chimeras (CEN) 3–2 0–5


It was a pretty disappointing week for fans of Vanorian football with the early rounds of the UICA, as Rinaldi was blitzed and toasted in their away leg sending the Gunners crashing out of the competition, while the Knights looked completely out of their depth in the trip to Ceni despite having looked somewhat promising in Straightdale. Only the Flames and Foxes looked like they were truly really for the week of international fixtures, though Longview would regret allowing their Chromatik opposition too much space in the first leg. Mar Sara was also playing Chromatik opposition and a late consolation goal by Haevathar in Chromatika was huge as the striker then had a brace in the home leg and the sides finished level on aggregate after normal time. Lucjusz Stef would net the winner in unexpected fashion, as a Vásquez cross was headed down by Haerear and the Chromatik defender launched a low diving header to lift Mar Sara over his home country's club.

Week 2
Premiership Matchday 1
Raynor City United 1-1 Samarga United
Mar Sara FC 1-0 Straightdale FC
Hondo FC 9-1 Rolalas FC
Club ESF 0-3 Gladerial United
SC Rinaldi 2-0 Club Valanora
Ibini FC 2-1 AC Valanari
Soldarian FC 1-1 Kareen FC
FC Capri 4-3 Wexax United


There is nothing quite like the opening weekend of the season, when all the teams start on equal footing and with their aspirations and ambitions still easily attainable. It is the sort of moments that make you enjoy sport as well as the limitless possibilities and potential that everything has. United however will be wondering just what happened after they were denied an opening day victory as the newly promoted Samarga showed that they want to end the season still among the top flight and keeping Vyintanese football supported outside of just Ibini. Hondo on the other hand blitzed their way to an extraordinary early lead in the table as the poor Rolalas side looked completely outmatched by the Owls, with Curren getting a quartet in her debut for the team. Perhaps more sides will be looking towards Schottia players if this is the sort of output that they can look to expect, even if it is just her first match.


Week 3


Champions' Cup Playoff Round
(FFD) Mâ Âlâmëómë 3–4 Mar Sara FC (VAL) 1–2 2–2
Globe Cup Playoff Round
(VAL) Club ESF 6–2 AFC Treason (NPH) 4–2 2–0
SBCC Playoff Round
(VAL) Samarga United 5–2 Oakstone (EUR) 3–1 2–1


If the last round of international fixtures were a sign of weakness from Vanorian clubs, then this round was a sign of great strength and resurgence. The friendly local rivalry between the sporting ventures of Valanora and Farfadillis are well known, with the two nations composing as part of the "Glorious Southwest" as some would call it. With the Flames going into Farfadillis and defeating Mâ Âlâmëómë and then holding on to a draw in the second leg to send their Farve super club out of the Champions' Cup, it will only further create that rivalry feeling. Mysteriously Club ESF ran rampant over AFC Treason of Nephara, winning both legs, Tidurthal Yraueme having a hand in all six goals that the side scored in the tie. Samarga also notched an impressive win in their tie, defeating what is usually fiesty Euran opposition.

Week 4
Premiership Matchday 2
Straightdale FC 1-5 Raynor City United
Rolalas FC 2-2 Samarga United
Gladerial United 2-1 Mar Sara FC
Club Valanora 1-1 Hondo FC
AC Valanari 4-1 Club ESF
Kareen FC 2-3 SC Rinaldi
Wexax United 1-0 Ibini FC
FC Capri 4-0 Soldarian FC


It was a quick reverse of fortunes for United and Hondo, as this time it was United running rampant and Hondo being unexpectedly held to a draw, keeping the two major favorites for the title even. However the shock of the round came in Gladerial, where the Twilight took an early lead over the Flames, grabbed another just after the second half began and then kept Mar Sara down for most of the rest of the match to notch an important early victory for the Twilight. Valanari and Capri both flexed their offensive prowess for their home audiences, with each netting four times and grabbing victories, which the four nil drubbing of Soldarian has to be quite worrisome for the Soldars who were wanting to get off to a good start this season and challenge for the top 5.

Week 4 and 5 UICA results

Globe Cup Qualifying Round
(ZWZ) Bassabook Old Boys 5–3 Club ESF (VAL) 3–1 2–2


Defeat at the hands of the Zwangzug club continues the very poor start to the season for the Blues as they looked like they were not ready for the way that their foes would play in the first leg. Back in Mar Sara they took a two nil lead and an away goals advantage into the half, with Kiraiseer and Lanalvaar having scored, but they gave away that advantage and the tie with sloppy defending on set pieces in the second half. Perhaps without the distraction of the Globe Cup, they can get a good league form going, for that is all the solace the Blues can take after this tie.

Week 5
Premiership Matchday 3
Raynor City United 1-1 Rolalas FC
Straightdale FC 2-1 Gladerial United
Samarga United 1-0 Club Valanora
Mar Sara FC 2-1 AC Valanari
Hondo FC 5-1 Kareen FC
Club ESF 3-1 Wexax United
SC Rinaldi 0-2 FC Capri
Ibini FC 1-1 Soldarian FC


If I were to tell you that through the first three games of the season, only one club would be perfect, your likely going to think that that club would have been United. However United dropped points again, drawing one all in The Battleground in the first Raynor City derby, against Rolalas. Instead it is FC Capri, as the Typhoon very quietly and a bit nonchalantly go about their business. This is exactly the sort of way that they played two years ago when they lifted the title and early returns seem to show that Hackett is proving a good mentor and partner to her young Cosumarite teammate in Hairenbyrne. And while it is early days, Samarga is unbeaten through three games, perhaps showing that their title in the Star League can translate well into Premiership success.

An all Premiership tie in the first round of Mar Sara against SC Rinaldi did not quite live up to the billing, as despite the Flames dominating possession and keeping Rinaldi on the defensive, the Gunners would emerge victorious as Eärfalas converted a half volley on the counter. Meanwhile things get worse for the Inferno after their relegation from the top flight, as they somehow fell to 6th tier side Twenty Forest Rangers and look quite shambolic, nothing quite like the proud historic club of old. The Typhoon nearly shared the same fate but were able to put three past their lower tier oppposition in extra time after subbing on Hackett to rescue the game.

Samarga United 1-0 FC Capri
Mar Sara FC 2-2 Soldarian FC
Hondo FC 3-3 Ibini FC
Club ESF 1-1 SC Rinaldi


United notched two needed victories, the first being an escape job at the White Fortress where a free kick from Arango in the nintey plus three was the difference for the Rockers getting one and three points. Back in Raynor City, Nacho grabbed a brace in United's four to nil win, the first two goals for the young Cosumarite striker. Hondo dropping points to the Islanders at home means that the Owls and Rockers now sit level on eleven points through five games at the top of the table, while Ibini has just one win in that time. A pair of draws for Mar Sara against the Hammers and Soldars normally would be nothing to scoff at but they are already dropping off the pace while Rinaldi's offensive gambit has truly not worked out how they would have liked thus far.

Week 8

Ibini FC 3-1 Samarga United
SC Rinaldi 1-1 Mar Sara FC
Club ESF 0-4 Hondo FC


The Typhoon are lurking in the shadows as they pull into a tie for second with United after what was a standard performance in dispatching Rolalas at the Hatire Memorial, but with the Owls going into Mar Sara and destroying the meager resistance that Club ESF put up, it means both Capri and United are trailing them, with United unable to find a winner at Valanari despite their litany of attacking options. Ibini finally managed a second win, disrupting Samarga's good start to the season, and that instead leaves scrutiny falling upon Soldarian, whose first win came this week against Straightdale. Given that the Knights are perceived as the weakest team in the division, this is very alarming for the Soldar faithful.

A mixed week for United who lost to the Jungle Cats at home, looking quite listless while doing so, but then they traveled to Castle de Mot and made the Hammers look like they were in the wrong division. It is suffice to say that United is perhaps having a title hangover with the way they have fared, especially in what should be friendly confines of the Battleground. However at least they are still nabbing victories, which is not what Soldarian and Mar Sara have been able to do and now the Flames sit in 11th position just shy of one third of the way through the season. While there is still much left to be played, the fact that the big clubs are struggling is a sign that perhaps those midtable side with high ambition might finally be able to crack those UICA spots that are usually reserved for the likes of Mar Sara, Soldarian, and Ibini. Hondo has set the pace after that opening day victory and keep themselves ahead of Capri and United with the pair of substantial victories. We have seen this from Hondo before though and they usually falter in the second half, can we believe that this season will be different?

While at times it was a bit filled with peril, all Vanorian squads that made it into the group stages of their respective UICA tournaments managed to find a way to emerge out of the group. United will be a bit miffed that they were not able to have a better showing in either of the legs against Handon but with Schottia football on the rise both in the club and national team sense, it is something that can not be helped, though the lack of good attacking showings is real troubling. For the Flames, they can at least show their supporters that the league is not important with the way they were just able to handle their group, as even the great Dí Maozöxê side was not able to beat them or advance. Hondo's progression was not as smooth as they might have hoped but with their eyes fixated on the league, it is understandable, while Samarga's unbeaten run exemplifies the growing thought of them being able to survive the season in the topflight.

Week 10
Premiership Matchday 9
Raynor City United 5-3 FC Capri
Wexax United 3-0 Soldarian FC
Kareen FC 2-0 Ibini FC
AC Valanari 1-0 SC Rinaldi
Club Valanora 6-1 Club ESF
Gladerial United 2-2 Hondo FC
Rolalas FC 0-0 Mar Sara FC
Straightdale FC 1-3 Samarga United


It was a majestic week for United, as they were able to defeat Capri in the Battleground and put to bed some of the worries that were emerging about their home form while at the same time dealing a blow to the Typhoon's thoughts of keeping United out of the Champions' Cup places, even at this early point of the season. Hondo managing only a draw against the Twilight, who are showing a bit of steel this season if we are going to be honest, means that United was able to just chip away at that lead the Owls had. Kareen got another impressive scalp, as they doused the growing steam of Ibini with a confident two to nil win on the island of Capri.

Week 11
Premiership Matchday 10
Soldarian FC 1-4 Raynor City United

Club ESF 3-0 Kareen FC
Hondo FC 5-0 AC Valanari
Mar Sara FC 1-1 Club Valanora
Samarga United 1-0 Gladerial United
Straightdale FC 1-2 Rolalas FC


Where just three weeks ago the Typhoon looked like they were up for being the third combatant in the fight for the title, they now look like just another good but not great club as Ibini was able to bounce back to their suprise loss to the Jungle Cats by defeating Capri at home. In their second capital city derby, United got a hattrick from Tájö Çíânflöné and ran out deserved winners over a severely underwhelming Soldarian, who really need to turn it around soon if they want to keep up in the race for UICA places. Mar Sara continues to struggle in the league and their fans have to wonder if the side is concentrating too much on the Champions' Cup and not enough on the league, with their inconsistent and beleagured form.

Vaharia FC 1-0 Arouw United


It was a bit of a worry for the Islanders, with Moria forcing them to extra time, but Fresco combined with Elam five minutes into the first period of extra time and was able to get the goal needed to advance through to the third round. Hondo was not as fortunate, as SC Ianisle also forced extra time in Hondo but managed to hit the Owls on the counter when they were pushing for the winner and stunned the Premiership leaders, the biggest upset of the round. The rest of the round went pretty much as expected and with far fewer ties going into extra time or penalties as the first round, with the favorites of the tie emerging victorious for the most part.

Week 13
Premiership Matchday 11
Raynor City United 3-2 Ibini FC
Soldarian FC 1-0 SC Rinaldi
FC Capri 2-1 Club ESF
Wexax United 1-1 Hondo FC
Kareen FC 2-3 Mar Sara FC
AC Valanari 0-0 Samarga United
Club Valanora 3-1 Straightdale FC
Gladerial United 2-3 Rolalas FC


The suspense music must be getting louder for Hondo, as they were held by the Hammers in Castle de Mot, with Perla Sierra clearing a shot off the line in the eighty-third to preserve the point for Wexax United. Meanwhile in Raynor City, the Rockers got goals from Koarena, Nacho, and Stokes, with the latter getting her goal in the seventy-third minute to break the tie between Raynor City and Ibini, bringing the Rockers just a point off the Owls at the top. Mar Sara finally got their act together and scrapped together a much needed win and against a Kareen side that has already beaten better sides than the Flames this year. Fears are growing in the other half of Mar Sara though, as Club ESF continues to just be a step behind every team they have come up against so far and are languishing in 14th and the Relegation playoff spot.

Week 14
Premiership Matchday 12
SC Rinaldi 3-1 Raynor City United
Club ESF 4-1 Ibini FC
Hondo FC 1-2 Soldarian FC
Mar Sara FC 3-0 FC Capri
Samarga United 1-0 Wexax United
Straightdale FC 1-1 Kareen FC
Rolalas FC 1-2 AC Valanari
Gladerial United 1-1 Club Valanora


And here we have it, the shock of the season, as the two front runners both get upset by a pair of otherwise struggling clubs and that makes the race at the top get just a little bit tighter for all involved. For the Gunners to beat the Rockers, it truly looks something like a small miracle in the form of the strikers finally having a game where it all just clicked, while Soldarian finally put together ninety minutes of complete football to go into Hondo and emerge as the victors. Elsewhere Capri also felt the heavy burden of disappointment, with the Typhoon not able to take advantage of a Mar Sara side who by all accounts have put all their eggs into the Champions' Cup basket, with the Flames showing that same spark for once in the league.

Isla Pinat 2-5 Raynor City United
Ursona FC 0-1 Kirria United
Manavawi Athletic 0-1 AS Sharala


Old fan favorites and Premiership winners of Juavi FC score the biggest scalp of the round, as they go into Gladerial and steal the game on a fifty-third minute goal while keeping the Twilight from being able to score themselves. While it is far from being a success back in the Premiership, it is certainly a moment of glee for the Reds as they try to get back into the topflight. Club ESF gets a moment to celebrate as they take out FC Capri at home, draining the field even more of the Premiership sides and opening up the possibility that we might end up with a non Premiership winner, especially with the Gunners losing in Zul'Atun.

Week 16
Premiership Matchday 13
Raynor City United 3-1 Club ESF
SC Rinaldi 0-2 Hondo FC
Ibini FC 2-1 Mar Sara FC
Soldarian FC 1-0 Samarga United
FC Capri 3-0 Straightdale FC
Wexax United 3-2 Rolalas FC
Kareen FC 1-2 Gladerial United
AC Valanari 3-1 Club Valanora


It is the first weekend in the season that all the favorites for their games managed to win and that there was not a single draw among the games. The best viewing came from Metropolis, where goals from Elam and Mithlithelen were the difference between the Islanders and the Flames in a hard fought game that gets the Islanders up into fourth position. Lucy Curren has taken to Valanora like a fish to water, grabbing another brace and making it eight goals through the first thirteen league matches and keeping the Owls one step ahead of the Rockers. With United looking to be getting into form as we approach the halfway point and even Capri looking to bounce back, the race for UICA qualification and the title looks to be quite a tense affair that might go down to the final day.

Ibini FC 2-0 Gladerial United
Soldarian FC 4-0 Club Valanora
FC Capri 1-2 AC Valanari
Wexax United 1-2 Kareen FC


This was the match that we have been waiting for for this whole first half of the season, United taking on Hondo as the two front runners do battle, this time in the Raynor Memorial. Holt had put the hosts up early with lovely combination play with Farías, but United would answer back just before the half as Nacho put in a sublime effort from the top of the box. Alexandra Saravakos would then get the winner in the seventy-second as her corner eluded the defense and attackers alike, flying into the upper far corner, and giving United the win and their first lead in the title race, before adding on to the Flames poor first half with a close win in the Battleground. For the Flames, it was a Mar Sara derby to forget as well, while Club ESF will have to take solace in this masterstroke victory in what has otherwise been a forgettable season for them. The biggest surprise though is that at roughly the halfway point, newly promoted Samarga is sitting in sixth, crazy heights for a club most thought would be relegated right back down.

If United do not go on to win the title, they will look back at this two month stretch as the key factor, where they were playing two or even three matches a week at one point. However that fixture congestion definitely did not diminish the results, as they were able to absolutely run rampant against Real Azuris, putting out the growing fire that has become Cosumar football the last four or so years. Dominant performances in both legs was a show of how good United can be, however in the next round, United's flaws of overly confident attacking played were put to the sword when they visited Ceni and had their ambition of adding a UICA star to their crest crushed. For all their league woes, the Flames have been quite resilient in the UICA competitions, and using the home advantage of Artani, they were able to slip past their Turori regional foes in the CC first knockout round but their league form showed its ugly presence against the Audioslav giants of 1830 Cathair. Samarga's performance was admirable but unfortunately cut show in the quarterfinals just like the Rockers and Flames, while the Owls were unable to solve the mystery of Marinos Metropolis in either leg, though some might think their early exit gives them the edge in the title race. Given their league performance, it comes as no real surprise that the Gunners fell to Shamrock Cathair, though they at least were able to save face with a hard earned draw in the home leg before being edged out in the Northeast of Atlantian Oceani.

Week 18
Premership Matchday 16
Samarga United 2-0 Raynor City United
Straightdale FC 1-1 Mar Sara FC
Rolalas FC 2-1 Hondo FC
Gladerial United 3-1 Club ESF
Club Valanora 2-1 SC Rinaldi
AC Valanari 0-2 Ibini FC
Kareen FC 3-1 Soldarian FC
Wexax United 5-1 FC Capri


Well, that is certainly one way to start off the second half of the season, with both title favorites losing away from home, and Samarga proving their quality once more in not finding themselves having lost to United in either fixture this season. Any club that can pull four points off the mammoth club is certainly a special quality, while Rolalas gets its first major win of the season in denying Hondo the ability to retake the lead from United's loss. Ibini meanwhile pulls within a shout of the top of the table after their poor start to the season and could actually make this more than just a two team race if they have indeed found their form.

Week 19
Premership Matchday 17
Raynor City United 1-0 Straightdale FC
Samarga United 1-4 Rolalas FC
Mar Sara FC 1-1 Gladerial United
Hondo FC 1-4 Club Valanora
Club ESF 1-1 AC Valanari
SC Rinaldi 0-0 Kareen FC
Ibini FC 0-0 Wexax United
Soldarian FC 5-0 FC Capri


It has been a terrible start to the second half for the Typhoon as not only has their potent strike force found it difficult to find the goals they are known for, but they have given up five goals in both of these first two matches in the start of the second half. While it is a very peculair offensive outburst from Soldarian, though one they needed to stay among the top 6 for the time being, it is a devastating blow for the Typhoon. United had to struggle through their match with the Knights but ultimately got the goal needed from national team winger Ilglerdiriel Lithvathar. With Hondo losing and the Hammers holding the Islanders to a draw in Vyinta, United has a small but noticeable lead at the top starting to form.


Week 20
Premership Matchday 18
Rolalas FC 1-1 Raynor City United
Gladerial United 1-1 Straightdale FC
Club Valanora 3-0 Samarga United
AC Valanari 2-1 Mar Sara FC
Kareen FC 0-1 Hondo FC
Wexax United 1-1 Club ESF
FC Capri 1-1 SC Rinaldi
Soldarian FC 2-1 Ibini FC


Nothing is ever easy, is it? Having beaten the best teams in the division with ease, United simply can not seem to get themselves motivated for the weaker sides in the division and once more failed to find a way to beat a relegation contender, this time in the form of Rolalas in a capital city derby. Taurmárion Ealoelon's second half strike for Hondo ensured that they left Capri with all three points against the Jungle Cats, while the Soldars have moved into third with their defeat of Ibini, with Pasargan striker Keled Petheô getting a first half brace for both of Soldarian's goals. Scary though is that Mar Sara's defeat at the hands of the Young Blues sees the Flames slip into 15th and an automatic relegation spot. I don't know what is going wrong in Mar Sara but they need to desperately find a fix, the squad has too much talent not to be in the top half of the table right now.

Week 21
Premership Matchday 19
Raynor City United 4-0 Gladerial United

Club ESF 2-1 Soldarian FC
SC Rinaldi 0-1 Ibini FC


It was a weekend were the title challengers were able to exhale just a bit, both having home games against rivals and managed to find a way to smash them both. Lucy Curren is looking right now to be the odds on favorite of being named as the signing of the season with the way she has so easily slotted into the Owls attacking three and having double digit goes before even the two-thirds mark of the season. Given the supply of Holt and Farías for the attack, it is easy to see why the Owls are giving United all they can handle but it still takes a formidable striker to convert those chances into the goals and that is what Curren certainly seems to be proving herself to be this season. Amazingly the Flames win against Wexax jumps them from 15th to 11th and I have a sneaky suspicion that the relegation fight is going to be as intense if not more so than the title fight this season with things that close at the bottom.

Ironwind United 1-0 Kirria United
AS Sharala 2-0 Twenty Forest Rangers
Raynor City FC 0-3 Juavi FC
AC Cartmot 0-2 Soldarian FC


There has to be something of a small bit of irony going on here, as United was knocked out of the Cup early in Gladerial, but to Inter Gladerial and not their old rivals in the way of Gladerial United, and the fourth tier's side most historic victory in their history. The best viewing though came in Cranbourne, where the Knights emerged as the victors in an eleven goal thriller, notching a nice feather in their cap despite knowing they are almost certainly going to be relegated back to the Star League at the end of the season. Surprisingly, only five Premiership clubs are left going into the Round of Sixteen and the odds of a non top tier team winning the Cup continue to grow every round with more and more upsets of the Premier League clubs.

Week 23
Premership Matchday 20
Club Valanora 1-0 Raynor City United
AC Valanari 0-1 Gladerial United

FC Capri 1-0 Samarga United
Soldarian FC 0-3 Mar Sara FC
Ibini FC 1-1 Hondo FC
SC Rinaldi 1-0 Club ESF


On the heels of crashing out of not only the Silver Cup but also the Champions' Cup, United went into Gladerial again only to once more find themselves on the wrong end of an unexpected defeat, with the Warriors stifling their offensive outlets and doing a smash and grab on the Rockers. Yet neither Ibini now Hondo could find a winner in their match against one another and the Rockers get to stay at the top of the table for the time being, even if their form is very concerning right now. Mar Sara is slowly trying to dig their way out of trouble and back into UICA contention, with that massive three nil win at Hellgate being a big help, though it is more detrimental towards Soldarian's UICA ambitions than helping the Flames in truth.

AOCL QuarterFinals
(COM) Flanders FC 3–5 FC Capri (VAL) 0–1 3-4
(COS) Real Azuris 2–1 Raynor City United (VAL) 1–0 1-1


This might have just been what the Typhoon need to get their season back on track, as they were able to sneak away from Paripana with a victory thanks to a late strike from Hackett, before returning to the Hatire Memorial and winning again in that leg, with Hairenbyrne grabbing a brace and the winner in the eighty-second minute that killed off the tie. United was not as fortunate, with their form falling away fast as Real Azuris was able to get revenge for their tie in the Champions' Cup, winning in Cosumar and then holding United to just a draw in the Battleground, even with the Rockers peppering the Azuris keeper late trying to get the two goals they needed by that point.

Week 24

Samarga United 1-2 Ibini FC
Mar Sara FC 1-0 SC Rinaldi
Hondo FC 3-1 Club ESF


Form is definitely fleeting and Raynor City has lost their completely, with another loss and at home to the Young Blues of all the clubs. That means that the Owls victory at the end of the weekend over Club ESF in the Raynor Memorial has put Hondo back up at the top of the table, though it is just by a single point. Ibini's win over Samarga in a Vyinta derby keeps them somewhat in the title picture, but there is a six point gap between them and Hondo at the top, and you can not expect that both United and the Owls will go on a massive run of bad form. United might be in one right now but the Owls have not shown this season to be that varied in their results and though their is still nine games to be played, it feels like the title is either going to wind up at The Battleground again or in the Raynor Memorial.

Week 25
Premership Matchday 22
Kareen FC 1-1 Raynor City United
Wexax United 1-1 AC Valanari

SC Rinaldi 0-0 Straightdale FC
Club ESF 0-1 Samarga United
Hondo FC 2-4 Mar Sara FC


Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, can no one simply win the games that they are supposed to in order to make the title race seem like it actually means something and not just the best of a bunch of underperforming squads? Okay, so good on the Flames for going four games unbeaten and now getting themselves back up into the midtable and even once more looking like a decent shout for a spot in the UICA, but Hondo had been one of the best and most consistent sides all season compared to them. So for Mar Sara to go into the Raynor Memorial and walk out with a four to two victory is surprising, but then not even United could make good on that opening, as they struggled mightily against the Jungle Cats in Kareen and had to be satisified with just a draw despite dominating the game. Capri and Soldarian both looked good, but their form like everyone else has been inconsistent, just as you have to look at Ibini not getting a win over Rolalas and the Gunners being held at the Beachfront by the Knights. While the tight races do make it a bit more interesting, just a lack of consistency by the teams makes it all feel a bit hollow somehow, though whoever does end up with the title will not care one bit. Still, eight matches are left and with both United and Hondo tied on points, this last stretch run is going to be quite meaningful indeed.

Season 20,073
Part 4

Week 26
Premiership Matchday 23
Raynor City United 1-1 Wexax United
Kareen FC 1-4 FC Capri
AC Valanari 2-0 Soldarian FC
Club Valanora 0-2 Ibini FC
Gladerial United 1-1 SC Rinaldi
Rolalas FC 3-2 Club ESF
Straightdale FC 1-1 Hondo FC
Samarga United 2-0 Mar Sara FC


So here we go, United being denied by the Hammers which should have surely allowed the Owls to have gone ahead of them with their trip to Straightdale, but no! The Knights showed a bit of bite despite their impending relegation and they too held a title challenger to a draw, which makes the title race even more interesting with Ibini winning and pulling within three points of both Raynor City and Hondo. Quietly and without any real fanfare to note, Valanari are solidly in fourth position in the table and look like they are going to have a spot in the UICA next season. Rinaldi's draw with Gladerial makes it hard to see them emerging from the bottom three but Club ESF not being able to find a result against Rolalas means that one of these popular clubs is probably headed for a drop.

Week 27
Silver Cup Round of Sixteen
Baysleef FC 2-0 Char Sara United
Samarga United 0-1 Juavi FC
Soldarian FC 0-1 Rolalas FC
Ironwind United 0-0(0-1 AET) Inter Gladerial
Club ESF 2-0 Oliviena United
AS Sharala 0-1 Valanari FC
AC Zul'Atun 0-4 Ibini FC
Straightdale FC 1-1(2-2 AET)[1-3 PKs] FC Therathor

Premiership Matchday 24
FC Capri 1-0 Raynor City United
Soldarian FC 1-2 Wexax United
Ibini FC 2-1 Kareen FC
SC Rinaldi 2-0 AC Valanari
Club ESF 6-4 Club Valanora
Hondo FC 1-3 Gladerial United
Mar Sara FC 1-1 Rolalas FC
Samarga United 0-1 Straightdale FC


Three more premiership clubs are gone, leaving just Club ESF, Rolalas FC and Ibini FC as the only top tier sides remaining in the Cup, after Soldarian lost against Rolalas in a capital city derby and Juavi went into Vyinta and slipped past Samarga. Straightdale also fell victim to FC Therathor but they did manage to take them all the way to penalty kicks, but it is still another Premiership club that is going out. With just three of the last eight in the Cup as a top tier side, will this finally be a year that someone outside the top flight will win the prestigious trophy? In the league, well, we now have a three way tie for first with Ibini winning their match against the Jungle Cats and somehow again both United and Hondo find ways to lose the games they are supposed to win. Just what is wrong with these sides, especially United, who has looked completely out of their depth since the halfway mark of the season?


Week 28
Premiership Matchday 25
Raynor City United 2-2 Soldarian FC
FC Capri 1-0 Ibini FC
Wexax United 2-1 SC Rinaldi
Kareen FC 0-1 Club ESF
AC Valanari 0-0 Hondo FC
Club Valanora 0-0 Mar Sara FC
Gladerial United 4-0 Samarga United
Rolalas FC 0-1 Straightdale FC


Round and round we go, where the title will end up, absolutely nobody knows, especially after there were four draws this round including the Rockers drawing with the Soldars in the last capital city derby of the season for them and Hondo being held by Valanari who are clinging to that hope of UICA football. Mar Sara, who had climbed all the way up to 6th at one point, are now back down in tenth after failing to grab a win or goal in Gladerial against the Warriors, while across town the Twilight's victory over Samarga puts them at thirty-six points, the usual required number to ensure survival in the division. Maybe the reinvention of the once great club is truly at hand.

Week 27 & 28 ICC Results

AOCL SemiFinals
(VAL) FC Capri 3–2 Real Azuris (COS) 1–0 2-2


While Azuris might have found United at the right time, though the Typhoon's league form has been horrifically inconsistent, they were not about to be denied the opportunity to try and repeat as the champions of the AOCL. Haanial got the goal in the first leg where the Typhoon won in the Hatire Memorial, while Hackett and Hairenbyrne both scored for Capri in the second leg, with the Cosumarite striker being the one to keep her homeland's club from getting a shot at the title.


Week 29
Premiership Matchday 26
Ibini FC 2-1 Raynor City United
SC Rinaldi 2-1 Soldarian FC
Club ESF 1-0 FC Capri
Hondo FC 1-2 Wexax United
Mar Sara FC 3-1 Kareen FC
Samarga United 2-1 AC Valanari
Straightdale FC 1-1 Club Valanora
Rolalas FC 0-0 Gladerial United

Silver Cup Quarterfinals
Baysleef FC 1-2 Juavi FC
Rolalas FC 2-0 Inter Gladerial
Club ESF 1-0 Valanari FC
Ibini FC 2-0 FC Therathor


I don't believe it, Ibini have gone two points clear at the top of the table after the Rockers were stunned in the Metropolis by a late goal from Fresco, but not only that, Hondo could not find even a draw against Wexax in the Raynor Memorial. I get it, no one wants to win the title, titles are apparently overrated, just like consistent form in this league. Who wants to get into the UICA and all of that reward money anyhow, certainly none of these clubs the way they have been playing, for even Capri was unable to get a win against Club ESF to try and get something resembling form going for them. At least the Premiership woes in the Cup seemed to have subsided, with all thee of the top tier sides winning their ties there, leaving only Juavi as the only non-Prem side left in the competition. All those hopes for the lower divisions now rest on the Reds managing to pull off two more upsets.

Week 30
Premiership Matchday 27
Raynor City United 1-1 SC Rinaldi
Ibini FC 1-1 Club ESF
Soldarian FC 1-1 Hondo FC
FC Capri 0-0 Mar Sara FC
Wexax United 1-0 Samarga United
Kareen FC 1-0 Straightdale FC
AC Valanari 1-1 Rolalas FC
Club Valanora 0-0 Gladerial United


Another week comes and another week that United has failed to find a winner, though much like the last month, the other contenders have not been able to find their own victories, though at least United and Hondo have the excuses of playing strong squads, where Ibini's draw against Club ESF flies in the face of all that we have seen from the Blues this season and the Islanders' recent form, though they still remain at the top. Straightdale's loss to the Jungle Cats in The Black Jungle officially relegates the Knights from the top flight, though everyone more or less had expected that when the season had began. That SC Rinaldi is currently in the other automatic relegation spot though, that is a story definitely worth following in these last three matches, to see if the Gunners can pull a great escape.

Week 31
Premiership Matchday 28
Club ESF 0-2 Raynor City United
Hondo FC 2-0 SC Rinaldi
Mar Sara FC 1-0 Ibini FC
Samarga United 0-2 Soldarian FC
Straightdale FC 2-2 FC Capri
Rolalas FC 1-0 Wexax United
Gladerial United 2-1 Kareen FC
Club Valanora 0-1 AC Valanari


At long last, United's eight game streak without a victory comes to an end, and not a weekend too soon with the Flames doing them a favor in taking out Ibini in Artani. Tájö Çíânflöné's brace against Club ESF also ended an eight hour scoring drought for the Farv striker and put the Rockers back in a tie for first place with the Owls, who have made Rinaldi's continued existence in the Premiership in severe trouble with their win. Two games remain for one of these three sides to win the title, can one of them find just a small amount of consistency and form in order to achieve the goal of their season?

Week 32
Silver Cup Semifinals
Juavi FC 4-1 Rolalas FC
Club ESF 1-3 Ibini FC


One major upset in the bag, as the Reds were able to swarm the Blues with their attacking talent and put Rolalas to the sword, giving them a spot in the Final. In Mar Sara, Club ESF's hopes were pinned on emerging as the champion of the Cup, but instead the Islanders now have the dream of doing a domestic double after a Fresco hattrick in the first twenty minutes killed off any hope of the Blues finding a way into the match.

Week 33
Premiership Matchday 29
Raynor City United 0-0 Hondo FC
Club ESF 0-1 Mar Sara FC
SC Rinaldi 0-0 Samarga United
Ibini FC 0-0 Straightdale FC
Soldarian FC 1-1 Rolalas FC
FC Capri 4-1 Gladerial United
Wexax United 2-0 Club Valanora
Kareen FC 0-2 AC Valanari


In typical fashion that is this season, the Rockers and Owls met for ninety minutes in Raynor City and nothing was decided in this penultimate match as both sides played as if they were afraid to lose, ultimately resulting in a dull nil to nil affair. Ibini however had the same sort of match against Straightdale in Ibini however and they sit in third and a point behind both United and Hondo going into the final match of the season. Hondo has the advantage with their goal differential of thirty-one compared to United's nineteen and so they just have to match Raynor City's result in order to achieve the title, while the Islanders have to hope that both sides fail to win their matches and that they win theirs against Gladerial in The White Fortress. Hondo will be traveling to Vyinta to take on Samarga while United will travel to Artani to face off against the Flames. At the bottom of the table, four clubs fight for survival, with Kareen FC, SC Rinaldi, Club ESF, and Club Valanora all looking for at least a point to avoid the automatic drop down into the Star League.

Season 20,073
Final And Review

Week 34
Premiership Matchday 30
Mar Sara FC 0-1 Raynor City United
Samarga United 1-3 Hondo FC
Straightdale FC 2-0 Club ESF
Rolalas FC 1-1 SC Rinaldi
Gladerial United 0-1 Ibini FC
Club Valanora 0-6 Soldarian FC
AC Valanari 2-4 FC Capri
Kareen FC 1-1 Wexax United


Nacho thought he had been United's savior with the goal that he had scored in Artani in the eighty-third minute and with the scoreboard showing that Hondo was tied one a piece with Samarga in Vyinta. However fate can be ever so unkind as Holt would score the go ahead goal in the nintey-first minute and as an exclamation mark on the season, Lucy Curren added a third goal from the spot in the nintey-fourth and securing the title for Hondo, thanks to their goal difference. Ibini had done their part, going into The White Fortress and getting their victory but with the two bigger clubs getting their victories, the Islanders have to settle for third and the Champions' Cup play-in rounds. The Typhoon were able to go into Valanari and defeat the Young Blues, meaning that despite all of their indifferent form, they will be finishing fourth this season and Valanari will be in sixth, both securing a spot in the Globe Cup. Soldarian's six nil thrashing of Club Valanora will move them into sixth and they will be rooting on Ibini in the Silver Cup Final, so that they to will manage to get into the Globe Cup. Rinaldi managed to escape the automatic drop thanks to a late goal from Fionn Lynch, but they have to contend with Juavi in the Playoff, while Kareen joins Straightdale in going down.

Week 35
Silver Cup Final
@ Hatire Memorial, Capri

Juavi FC 0-1 Ibini FC


For the fourth straight season a non Premiership side has taken on a Premier League side in the Silver Cup Final, but for the fourth straight season, it will be the Premiership side that will take the trophy home. Juavi did well to give the Islanders a stern test in the Final, but Fresco combined with Elam and Norovathar in order to craft a great goal, with the winger being the recipient of the teamwork and getting the goal. The victory will see the Islanders not only take part in the Champions' Cup, but also the Cygnus Cup, as well as giving Soldarian their berth into the Globe Cup as a result of Ibini already being in the UICA spots. Juavi now casts their attention to the playoff with Rinaldi, to see if they can cap their season off with a promotion.

Week 36
AOCL Final
@ The Arcticala Electrical Stadium, Arcticala, Vilita

FC Capri (VAL) 1–3 Dí Maozöxê (FFD)


Try as they might, the Typhoon were not able to overcome their Farf opponents to retain the AOCL trophy and give Valanora a second spot in the regional competition. If the Typhoon are going to compete with the big clubs both domestically and internationally, the squad will need to heavily reinvest the money they have received the last few years into better defenders and maybe a better holding midfielder. However all credit has to be given to the Farves, they played exactly how everyone expected them to and deservedly took home the regional trophy.

Season 20,074 Preview


Normally for our season previews for the upcoming domestic footballing season, we outline the squad's previous performance, the expectations for this season, and try to highlight any transfers that the staff believes to be of importance as to how it might change a way plays or their goals for the campaign. However as readers of this paper are aware, the majority of the elves who made up the largest portion of the population, including most of the roster spots not just in football but in all sports, are no longer with us anymore. Thusly, there has been a period of turmoil, of doubt, and of many major changes not just to the rosters of the clubs but in the entire pyramid for the Eternal Empire. With the seat of power now transferred for the foreseeable future in Sabine and Caddonia, the pyramid also had to find a way to include these new clubs in the structure, deciding to grant the 48 teams from the kingdom their own three divisions in the seventh tier of the pyramid, with the pyramid now changing to a 7 tier, 18 division, 288 team structure, with each division having 16 teams. Several smaller clubs have been folded as well, in the wake of the traditional money that held them up being pulled away.

For a team like Raynor City United though, who had a plethora of foreign talent even before the Calling, they will likely not see as much of a drop off of their form despite now having to fill out their roster with human players. The Navymen will be the most well situated of the Premiership clubs to continue on at a successful click both domestically and internationally, though they do retain the services of the world class wing play of Ilglerdiriel Lithvathar, who was one of the few elves of note not to have left with the rest of the population to the celestial realm. Look for Tájö Çíânflöné and Ignacio "Nacho" Bérdoon to try and form a partnership that will look to lead the Rockers for another five years of dominance.

Not all teams are as lucky, and in fact most teams are scrambling just to get a roster submitted to the VSC to meet the proper registration standards in order to continue in League Play. Which brings back to another change, the Star League has been rebranded as League One, with the previous League One now being League Two, and previous League Two is now League Three, with those three tiers and the Premiership continuing to be considered League play and professional levels. The additional teams have also changed the format of the Silver Cup, with the top two tiers now entering in the second round, the third through sixth tiers entering in the first round proper, and the seventh tier competing in a preliminary round. Regardless of how the season plays out amid all this toil and change, one thing is for sure, the money of the Premiership will no doubt see the clubs aggressively hitting the transfer market next window, not just to grab the occasional premier player, but to flesh out what are sure to be quite light rosters.

Season 20,074 Review


United was always going to have the best of it with their amount of international stars and a couple of prospects that jumped from their academy and into the first team, but few would have believed that the Navymen would have had it in them to not just pull off the league but to also thoroughly boss FC Capri in the Silver Cup Final to pull off the domestic double. Though getting up there in age, Tájö Çíânflöné's ability to score and lead the attack of the legendary club where on full display for the entire season and he will likely go down as one of United's legends once his playing career does come to an end. The future though does look bright, even as the Farf ages, as Nacho proved to be a solid striker in his own right and the two strikers combined for forty-three of the sixty-four goals that the squad put up in league play. The question now though drifts over to what the squad will be able to do with the Champions' Cup and AOCL, will they have the depth to be able to handle the increased challenge next season or will their reign be just that of domestic giants for the near future?

Granting Lucjusz Stef the captancy seemed to stiffen the backline of Mar Sara and lead them into the Champions' Cup on the backs of one of the better defensive records in the league. The Chromatik is another aging player that seems to be defying the normal falling off that most players get once they are past 30 and the Flames definitely will hope that he has another two or three years left in him if the defense continues to play this well. While they were never really challenging the Rockers for the title, they kept the pressure on United to keep up good results while also bumping out clubs like Ibini and Hondo for that second spot in the Champions' Cup, with the Premier League having lost their third spot after the performances of the teams in this years editions. Given the gutting of the squads, it is hard to fault the teams for not having great cycles and based on the coefficients, it is unlikely that the Premier League will get that third spot back any time soon, barring absolutely phenomenal performances from our entrants to next years editions.

However with it being Capri, Ibini, and Hondo being our contingent finding their way into the Globe Cup, the chances for solid performances are high, as they are a few of the clubs that were not quite as hard hit by the Calling and have the resources needed to add the players of high caliber in the transfer window leading up to next year's UICA. It was a season of the haves and have nots in terms of those who made the international spots, though Samarga nearly nicked the last Globe Cup spot from Hondo on the last matchday, but the Owls managed to get a late equalizer for the needed point to keep them in fifth and into the Globe Cup. While it is a big fall from the heights of the team last season, it is still international football, and that is alluring to quite a lot of players looking to make cases for their respective national team outfits. Though that is bad news for our own, as Char Sara could not find their old form and were once more relegated, sending several of the newly capped Vanorian dual nationals down with them. Such is football, it gives and it takes, you only have to hope on the balance that it gives more than it takes in the end.

Season 20,074

It was a good season for those inside that capital as not only did Raynor City manage to defend their title but they had to do it by fending off their crosstown rivals in Soldarian. The Royals where neck and neck with the Raptors for the entirety of the season and when the two met on the penultimate matchday, it was the Raptors who walked away with the three to one victory that all but sealed their title aspirations. However the shock of the season is that it was not Stormguard or Turbani in the fourth spot for the last qualifying spot in the Hockey Champions League, but rather the small club of Ispan Wanderers who punched well above their weight all season. Maybe the departure of the Elves has equalized the playing field in the EHL, given that Stormguard fell all the way into 10th position this season when they are normally the ones who are pushing Raynor City for the title. That theory will be put to the test in the HCL, where Vanorian dominance has been something that has lived on in infamy, from the very first iteration, up to now. Can the new human, dwarven, and dragonkin led teams continue to light the way, or will the rest of the world finally have a puncher's chance against we Vanorians?

EBA Season 20,074


For the third year running, it was the Highlanders that managed to power their way through to the title, with both Capri and Raynor City far away from being able to snipe the title away from Valanari, a feat that those of Duran Arena are sure to be very happy about. The Monarchs and Firebirds were both comfortably inside the IUBC positions for most of the season, though Rinaldi did keep them honest during the home stretch of the season, but will be ultimately disappointed and heart broken with their fourth placed finish after the IUBC shrink eligible entrants per nation from four to three, meaning they will miss out entirely. The Monarchs slightly more prolific offense was the difference in them getting the second spot and in theory a better draw once the IUBC does come around, though Vanorian teams have shown a bit of steel and detirmination about them regardless of what seed that they have occupied for that tournament. In a surprising turn of events is that Caethserin finally managed to find their way out of the bottom of the table, though they only finished one spot above, however this is the first time in the Aces history where they have not finished last. Perhaps with the threat of an impending expansion to the EBA and even the idea of a second tier be bandied about, the side has had the sort of pressure to really invest in their team and try to get a competitive product out on the hard court. For now, the eyes are now cast solely on the Highlanders, Monarchs, and Firebirds, who look to do all of the Eternal Empire proud and hopefully bring home the IUBC Trophy to Vanorian shores.

Season 20,075 Preview


Lineups are listed right to left where applicable

Image
AS Peravova
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Jana Bauer | Stadium: Tensari (20,000)
Starting Eleven (4-5-1): Alexander Schulz; Doreen Frey, Angelika Frei, Franziska Weisz, Kevin Zweig; Sven Gottschalk, Kristian Farber, Lena Bürger, Thomas Friedman, Lena Pfeiffer; Thorsten Urner

For the first time in nearly a decade, Peravova is back into the top tier of Vanorian football, though I would say that they are in a far worse shape than they were the last time that they were up in the Premiership. That being said, the Vyintanese have been having human players in their youth academy for ages and so that may prove to be a valuable boon for the club as the league continues to try to feel out how to transition to the new conditions of the Eternal Empire. Though I still think that Peravova simply does not have enough to stay up in the top tier.

Image
AC Valanari
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Sigrid Olstad | Stadium: Duran Palace (51,000)
Starting XI (4-4-2 diamond): Thea Lind; Joachim Sørbø, Lukas Martinussen, Mathias Håland, Aleksandra Landro; Even Haugan; Sofia Sundal, Viljar Aase; Vilde Næss; Sara Haugum, Michael Jensen

Some will wonder if Valanari will retain the moniker of the Young Blues now that they have been forced to move on from their elven players, like the rest of the nation, and will be using whatever human players that they can get to sign. That aside, the squad performed quite well last season, finishing at a tidy tenth place finish, though they would have liked to see their strike force grab a few more goals, with the side barely averaging over a single goal a game. Fortunately their defensive unit is fairly solid from what was shown last season, with Mathias Håland being particularly impressive, such that the national team is looking his direction. If that strike force can pop in a few more goals this season, they may well challenge for a UICA spot.

Image
Club ESF
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Håvard Chaudhry | Stadium: Donna Cathedral (60,000)
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Aron Langørgen; Jostein Tvete, Emil Sandbakken, Gabriel Rønning, Image Kirsten Galley; Sofie Gleditsch, Marius Stiansen, Victoria Huynh; Kasper Fosse; Elias Mathiesen, Image Russell McGeouch

The Blues did not fare well last season as a very leaky defensive unit had them fighting off relegation for the majority of the season and it is hard to think that just three seasons ago that they were up into the top four and playing in the UICA. McGeouch needs to show a bit more of presence in the front if the team is to climb back into midtable and what people are used to from them, but the bite really needs to come from the backline that looked lost at times. Perhaps a second season will have Galley look more comfortable but last season it seemed as if the fullback had a hard time handling the pressure of the games week in and week out, as well as the pace that the teams of the Premiership have on hand. While not all the defensive woes was their fault, their performance really needs to raise if they want to keep the starting position.

Image
Club Valanora
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Tiril Markussen | Stadium: Tiradir (30,000)
Starting XI (4-4-2): Amund Mørk; Nicholas Nguyen, Jørgen Vik, Hermine Larsen, Thelma Volden; Elvira Holter, Tobias Nyvoll, Agnes Ali, Carl Skoglund; Daniel Mjåland, Abdullahi Danielsen

The Warriors managed to take advantage of the chaos that was last season and found a way to sneak into the top half of the table and with little in the way of fanfare, I expect them to repeat the process though their backline could definitely use some better performances if they are to ensure another top half campaign. Last season Danielsen was about to keep the team afloat with a fifteen goal season, but it is not a certain thing that they will be able to repeat that performance. Larsen and Vik have to do a lot better or the Warriors could see themselves in the relegation fight that no one wants to see, while if they improve the club could be fighting for a top 5 position and a spot in the UICA.

Image
FC Capri
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: René Abendroth | Stadium: Hatire Memorial (60,000)
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Michael Norberg; Herman Söderberg, Edgar Sundström, Abbe Fredriksson, Image Corryn Tallant; Image Beibhinn Harlech, Florian Gruenewald, Eliza Hellström ; Image Yuki Hatsune; Image Linn-Katrin Hairenbyrne, Image Sue Hackett

The last two seasons has seen the invest of the Typhoon into the Cosumarite Hairenbyrne pay off, as the side has been able to maintain their top five presence and for awhile even put a scare into the Flames and Rockers in the vying for the title. Overall, the squad seems to be fairly well built though it could use another strong prescence in the backline to really solidfy their status as a title contender. However the problem is that the fans of the Typhoon have come to love and expect the side to have full attacking flair, which they have had, but with Hackett getting up there in years, there is a chance that the Typhoon have kept her as the primary starter for one season too many.

Gladerial United
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Ruben Skuland | Stadium: The White Fortress (70,000)
Starting XI (4-4-2): Erik Andersen; Maria Lind, Benjamin Dahl, Emilia Neteland, Synne Pedersen; Ola Rogstad, Amanda Braathen, Preben Paulsen, Malene Hansen; Ruth Lindhjem, Image Conan Hawkine

Four seasons now the Twilight have defied all expectations and maintained a top flight status despite all signs saying that they should be on the way back down to the second tier. With the reshuffling of the league structure and no more playoff to have to worry about, the Twilight should be calm in that their spot is likely secured, if only just by the slimmest of margins, though last campaign did see them finish a comfortable seven points off fourteenth and thirteen above the drop. The Twilight have decided to take a chance on a veteran Brenecia striker in Conan Hawkine, hoping to bolster their attacking prowess to maybe move up further into the table, though the fans of the club would say that they money would have been better invested in some better defenders.

Manager: Tobias Nilssen | Stadium: Raynor Memorial (40,000)
Starting XI (3-3-1-3): Agnes Stenberg; Mia Fallet, Mona Selmer, Line Rønning; Image Máirín Wakefield, Mathias Jakobsen, Image Patrick Rafferty; Image Angelo Farías; Image Lucy Curren, Adrian Lunde, Emil Oppedal

The Owls had a bit of a slip last season, falling all the way to fifth place, though the question really is how did they manage not to finish higher with their impressive offensive and defensive record overall. The squad seems to be one that either has a feast of has famine, as when they score, they score in bunches or they do not score at all. Perhaps this is a sign of Lucy Curren coming back down for the tantalizing heights of her initial landing in Valanora and back to what those back in Schottia expected from her. It might be a make or break season for several of their foreign based players as they are all entering the twilight of their careers, as anything less than a title challenge will likely see a mass selling off in the next window.

Ibini FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Marit Engvik | Stadium: Metropolis (39,000)
Starting XI (4-4-2): Brynjar Eide; Image Joseph Curtin, Oliver Davies, Image Deneb Xilbohim, Image Sheila Greaves; Leonora Forsberg, Image Iñaki Martón, Image Tiffany Elam, Yusuf Norberg; Allandren Fresco, Image Pierre Casseres

The spirits are higher than normal for the Islanders as the team is one of the few that still has an elven player and the lineup is full of solid players from top to bottom. This Islander squad should give Mar Sara and Raynor City a heavy run for their money when it comes to the title race, with Fresco looking to show that elite elven experience in spades. The Valladar Casseres should lift some of that burden off of Fresco, while Martón adds a bit of grit that was missing from the middle of the park, making the squad quite well rounded. If there is a weakness, it is the keeper position, but with good goalkeepers so hard to come by in the transfer window, they will have to make due with young Eide and hope he starts to improve as he gets experience.

Mar Sara FC
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Jens Dahlberg | Stadium: Artani (74,000)
Starting XI (4-4-2): Andreas Kronstad; Image Lucjusz Stef, Image Aililath Nerenn, Image Seve Vásquez, Image Tamara Glavan; Vanessa Stormo, Leon Berg, Frida Jacobsen, Ingvild Thorsen; Marie Skaar, Samuel Strømnes

Back to back seasons of finishing just off the pace has to be quite frustrating for the Mar Sara faithful as they have to ask what more that they can do to finally topple United's run of dominance in the league. All across the lineup there is a good to great player lacing up the boots for them, they have suberb facilities, and quite passionate fans that fill out the Artani every single home match. If the Flames are going to topple United, it needs to be this season, with Stef and Nerenn both on the wrong side of thirty, and they will not be able to count on them to provide one of the best defenses in the league for that much longer, as the Flames did boost the second best defensive record last season.

Raynor City United
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Didrik Gjedrem | Stadium: The Battleground (78,000)
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Image Macron Abbott; Iben Fjørtoft, Image Corella da Silva, Image Torbjörn Jorgensen, Image Alexandra Saravakos; Image Jainsly Anselm, Image Timi'sala Koarena, Ilglerdiriel Lithvathar; Image Cristian Arango; Image Tájö Çíânflöné, Image Nacho

Macron Abbott and Nacho have been nothing short of amazing and living up to and beyond all expectations of them when the Rockers were able to snap them up two seasons ago, helping lift the side to another pair of titles and looking quite dangerous in the ICCs as well. However as good as the squad is, the middle of the park is a little long in the tooth and that might just been a problem, with both Koarena and Arango over thirty. The ageless wonder of Lithvathar continues to fly up and down the flanks, though there have been talks that the winger has been looking lethargic and meloncholy lately, with some saying that she is feeling depressed after the departure of all her friends and family in the Calling. Maybe it is not, since on paper this United side should be able to run away with the league, but there does appear to be a few cracks here and there that the rest of the league might be able to take advantage of, especially given the amount of competitions that the Rockers will be having to compete in next season after winning the Cup as well.

Rolalas FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Ine Skogen | Stadium: The West Wall (41,000)
Starting XI (3-4-3): Image Julia Taylor; Image Cuthbert Ottaway, Thea Nesse, Erik Tesfay; Melissa Heggernes, Filip Andersen, Wilhelm Trøen, Juliane Uthaugl; Emilie Heier, Mathias Skau, Emma Nygård

The capital continues to have the most influence over the Premiership with Rolalas maintaining their stay and keeping the count of capital clubs at three of the sixteen slots, though they will no doubt be making Jaime Kuu disappointed with their lack of offensive output last season despite their three striker system. That the Starblaydi's first managed club has managed to keep itself as a steady top tier side, even if it does sometimes yo-yo into the second tier, has to have made him proud, but for the fans at home, they would like it if the side managed to try and push forward rather than rest on their laurels. The goals for the fans is a top ten finish and there is enough talent here to that, but the side will need to find a way to get more points on the road and turn The West Wall into more of fortress that points are nearly a guarantee for them when playing at home.

Samarga United
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Caitlin Potter | Stadium: Meadow Park (18,000)
Starting XI (4-4-2): Stephanie Freytag; Jennifer Loewe, Katrin Engel, Ulrich Schmid, Juliane Boehm; Andreas Friedman, Declan Lord, Christian Weisz, Jonas Kluge; Lewis Stanley, Chloe Barber

No one will ever accuse Samarga United of having very pretty matches, but then no one has ever said that effective tactics have to be beautiful to watch, as evidenced by Samarga's ugly but effective defensive effort last season that saw them nearly claw their way into the UICA with a completely unbelievable sixth placed finish. The Vyintanese outfit ensures that the island continues to have more than just Ibini as its main representative, however the club has little in the way to attract any of the good players, and thus has to resort to the sort of tactics that make it even more unlikely to get more fans or technically skilled players to join their team, sort of a catch 22. That being said, while I do think Samarga is likely to fall back to reality, it should not be a heavy drop, and a finish somewhere around tenth seems likely with teams still going to have a hard time to break down their steel wall defensive line.

SC Rinaldi
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Aurora Bye | Stadium: The Beachfront (43,000)
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Jakob Stensrud; Eva Fotland, Lauritz Soltvedt, Image Deonte Fretwell, Johan Steen; Image Pascal Kilgallon, Henrik Elmi, Lars Strand; Image Camilla Priest; Image Alyssa Souter, Image Fionn Lynch

Lynch and Souter really need to step up their games if they want to keep this partnership that they have had going on for the last two seasons, as they are simply not netting enough goals at a consistent pace that would warrant keeping them as a striker partnership. While a midtable finish last season was nothing to scoff at, the Gunners are used to being in and around the top of the table, not merely being content with midtable mediocrity, as they do also have a handful of Premiership titles to their name. Adding the Eastfielder national team hopeful to sure up the backline might be a good move but it could be fruitless if the attacking talent doesn't find a way to get a few more chances and convert them every match.

Soldarian FC
Kits: Home, Away, & Third
Manager: Carmen Bugge | Stadium: Hellgate (54,000)
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Samuel Nygård; Image Issac Catessic, Image Garwyn Varney, Lukas Jørgensen, Image Sherry Thames; Image Jagger Parsa, Gabriel Bakken, Eskil Ramberg; Ole Johansen; Image Ted Dolanukitainen, Image Keled Petheô

With a rather lethargic showing last season, the Soldars hit the market in order to try and get back into UICA contention, with the signing of Mercedini national team defender Issac Catessic and Cosumarite striker Ted "Nuke" Doluanukitainen. The signings are said to be a boost to the club and given the fans some renewed up that the squad can begin to compete with their capital city rivals once more. There is some concern about how much quality that the likes of Catessic and Varney actually have, as Mercedini is not exactly a major power in world football, but the Soldars have little right to be picky after finishing twelfth last season. If the squad can rely on something though, it is Keled Petheô, as the Pasargan striker has had double digit goals the last three seasons and should be fit to get that sort of tally again if Nuke lives up to their billing.

Straightdale FC
Kits: Home & Away
Manager: Elvira Ness | Stadium: Red Fence (39,000)
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Frida Brandvik; Olav Grønvold, Andreas Håpnes, Lina Farah, Ask Hansen; Jakob Brattli, Adrian Aasen, Sander Hagen; Jon Hansen; Mina Løkken, Ingrid Morken

The Knights are who we thought they were, a once mighty club that has been relegated to something of a yo-yo club and with no real direction for getting out of the current predicament that they find themselves. Like most of the other lower end table teams of the Premiership, the squad needs fresh ideas and to quit holding serve with their mostly domestic based lineup, even if it means going into even more defensive than what they typically are known for. Something has to change if the Knights are to become a mainstay in the top tier once more.

Wexax United
Kits: Home & Away

Starting XI (4-4-2): Mariell Jensen; Image Karen Gourlay, Image Perla Sierra, Vilde Flatebø, Camilla Nilsen; Philip Johansen, Simon Berget, Image Naldaboa, Image Dallas Keighran; Vebjørn Evjen, Jonas Hella

Things have not gone according to plan for Wexax the last few seasons and it is perplexing as to figure out exactly where things have gone wrong and how to fix them. In a desperate move just to get something changed, the squad has changed to a 4-4-2 to try and get better results or shake up the roster, though I am not sure that will be the remedy that cures what ails the Hammers, as they just simply seem to be lacking something and have become the very definition of mediocrity as the squad is currently composed.

Season 20,075 Review


Well this has certainly been a very interesting season to say the least. Tasked with competing in five competitions, United began to falter down the stretch, drawing games that they would have won easily and seeing their early season form came for naught, as the Flames of Mar Sara charged through with the last matchday seeing United traveling to Mar Sara with the title on the line, trailing the Flames by a single point, while Ibini was hoping for the two would draw so that they would have a chance at the title. However a draw was not on the cards as Samuel Strømnes found the back of the net in the thirtieth minute and the second best defensive unit in the league held true despite the backline's age and kept the talented attackers of the Rockers held frustrated and the capital club falling from second to third in the table, with Ibini winning their match in the capital against Rolalas, to steal the Champions' Cup slot, meaning that the third Globe Cup spot that the league usually had being taken away, as United is given a spot in next year's edition after winning another title and earning a UICA star for their crest.

AC Valanari will feel hard done by, seeing their great season and a top five finish come all for nothing as a result of not only United falling into third but also falling to Hondo FC in the Silver Cup Final, as the Owls rescue their season with the win in the domestic cup competition, after they managed to usurp the holders in the quarterfinals thanks to a penalty shootout and United's own tired legs having began to show. The biggest surprise of the season though come in the form of the Gunners finishing fourth with an amazing just twenty-five goals conceded in the entire season. It was the defensive showing that would make Rejistania quite proud, given the usual offensive nature of the league. Capri will be livid that their penultimate match against Rolalas and the Blues finding a way to beat them saw the Typhoon fall out of the UICA spots despite their amazing goal output. Though they can only look at their own aggressive attacking play and lack of defensive discipline for the the shortcomings, as they nearly conceded as many goals as they let in.

To no ones great surprise, the Twilight somehow managed to scrape together enough results to keep themselves afloat one more season, as the side is quickly becoming something of an escape artist when it comes to avoiding the drop. They are joined by to many's surprise by the Knights of Straightdale, as despite their lack of star power or even firepower, the Knights were able to pull together just enough results to get the points to stay alive for one more season. The biggest disappointment though is the Warriors of Club Valanora, who were fighting for UICA spots just a handful of seasons ago are instead now propping up the entire table by sitting at the bottom and being dropped to the second tier, along with Peravova who gave a relatively good account for themselves, but were ultimately just a bit short of having the points needed for survival. Replacing the relegated clubs are two clubs who used to be popular Premiership sides but had fallen on hard times in AS Sharala and AC Hartdale, with Hartdale being one of the original eight clubs that founded the league.

EBA Season 20,075


The Highlanders look like they are starting to build something of a dynasty, after winning the IUBC title and then running away with the EBA crown for the third season on the trot. With the Monarchs having a down year, it was always going to be Valanari that was most likely going to emerge victorious, as they showed in the international competition that their scoring touch is second to none, showing that skill in domestic games as well. However it is just not the fancy footwork and slick shooting that is powering this team to being the premier basketball team in Valanora, but also a commitment to defense that can not be even close to being matched by the rest of the league, as evidenced by having the largest points differential and the least amount of points conceded in the league by over a hundred twenty points. It is quite the accomplishment for the team that lives in the Shadow of the Spine of Arrosia mountains and could very well be the key to the squad being able to repeat as IUBC champions, a feat that has not yet been done in this era of the IUBC. However both Rinaldi and Capri will be joining Valanari in the IUBC and will be looking to put their own mark on the competition and try to establish a Vanorian stranglehold on this newest era of the IUBC.
