BASEBALL

Considered a major spring-to-summer sport in Quebec and Shingoryeo. Mostly viewed as a pair to gridiron football, Baseball is the sport of the spring break and the summertime sadness on the southern half of the country (and the entire West Coast), where high school and college baseball are popular and going to a QBO game on a date or friends' night out make perfect sense. Like with gridiron and rugby, the Quebecois Baseball Organisation (QBO) is a closed league with 16 teams, divided into Imperial League (IL) and Royal League (RL), who have two tiers of developmental/second-team leagues under them. There is a clear imbalance on the winning column, with the two winningest teams, Kingston Tigers and Saguenay Lions, being on the Royal League, and parity issues between the winning teams and the otherwise continue to be a case. Internationally, the Quebecois have had mixed results on the World Baseball Classics, though a solid number of national teamers excelling in Cassadaigua and South Newlandia suggest that the calibre of the Quebecois baseball players is not the one at issue here.

BASKETBALL

Considered to be one of the 'Big 3' of indoor sports played in Quebecois winters (Basketball, Hockey and Volleyball), basketball is an extremely popular, well-loved sport in Quebec. While traditionally regarded as the number two of leagues behind the QHL, the QBL and the QWBL has since caught up with the QHL in terms of television coverage, it has seen a particular rise in participation numbers over the past fifty years and if hockey was the winter sport of the 2010s and 2020s, basketball probably has been the one in Quebec for over two decades.

There are several reasons behind this - the leagues' smaller number of teams (16 each, as opposed to 28 on QHL), the bigger number of sports clubs-owned sides due to the duality of volleyball and basketball divisions, and the consistent performances of the Quebecois national teams on the International Basketball Championships (IBC) have come to do with it. Strong grassroots system mean that all levels of basketball are watched from high school to international stage, while with local community centres and school teams being key sources of development, something that. With this in mind, many do believe that Basketball may have overtaken hockey in terms of popularity, as they are viewed by many to be above them in commercial revenues and on negotiation tables.

Quebecois men's and women's basketball national teams are also considered to be one of the top sides in the world, having placed second in the IBC 25, third on 3 occasions (IBC 20-21 and 30), and fourth in IBC 19. At the moment, their biggest rivals are Banija, with who they play a biyearly Quebec-Banija SuperSeries and on many matches on the deeper stages of the Quebecois Commonwealth Games/Championships. Quebecois men are traditionally known to emphasise individual plays and flashiness, while the women stick to their advantage in height and teamwork.

ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL

Where football belongs in Quebecois sport lore is a tricky business. It is true that football does have a very high participation number and enjoys predominant popularity as an outdoor sport during colder months (warmer months has gridiron football and field hockey). But it is not the sport Quebec and Shingoryeo is really known for, and talent retention beyond college level remains a challenge. The Q-League has steadily worked itself back into one of the more promising leagues in Multiverse. It is a 20-team league with solid parity beyond the usually familiar names of Montreal Koreana and CSKA Quebec at the top. If anything, that is what football's strength over other sports lie, as the regional distributions of teams and powerhouses remain stable (aside from a bit of East Coast sways and West Coast struggles) and titles routinely change hands.

Internationally, Quebec and Shingoryeo's results on field depended, with the domestic clubs not performing well (though still a top 33 asspociation) in contrast to the Grim Reapers' consistencies pre- and post-hiatus. While known for their underachievements on the AOCAF (past) and the CAFA (present), the Quebecois have performed well on the World Cup, where they made it to 3 second round, 2 quarterfinals and a 4th place appearance.

GRIDIRON FOOTBALL

Gridiron football, which has grown separately from other sports, is also significant in rural Quebec. There are three variation of gridiron best known in Quebec - Quebecois high school football (community based - plays under Argo Rules, an IC name for Canadian football), college football (regional/academic), and the QFL (most popular in the bigger cities) - with all three having their own histories. Due to the media-friendly nature of the sport, as well as particular cultish nature of the fandoms, there's a particular appeal to the sport, even if the talent pool may be smaller than in other sports due to safety reasons. The Quebecois national collegiate team has been a consistent player in the World Bowl, but have recently retired from competition. Saguenay and St. Croix universities, two of the nation's gridiron powerhouses, have remained in the NationStates College Football, the headquarter of which is based in Quebec City.




HANDBALL

Handball is the number one summer indoor sport in Quebec and Shingoryeo, a spot it comfortably holds with packed stands. While the sport itself doesn't hold the 30,000+ crowd the gridiron or baseball matches normally get, the relative accessibility of handball more than cover such deficiency. Quebec and Shingoryeo does have a 3-tier, dualsex pyramid for handball, with the 14-team Ligue-Boreale at the very top of the pyramid.

Unfortunately, the international results for the Quebecois national teams have yet to really reflect their popularity. Following the double gold at Nassau Bay-Centralis, the three-decade long (and ongoing) dispute between Quebecois Handball Federation, the Players Association, and the Ligue-Boreale, had meant that the Quebecois national teams rarely entered over last three decades, if ever, with a full squad, with many refusing to participate internationally over last thirty years. Stylistically, the Quebecois distances itself from the usual style of brutal physicality found in other sports. Due to the players' relatively shorter height, men and women are finesse and speed-driven, preferring to overlap and pass a lot before finding opportunities.

HOCKEY

If basketball and volleyball may be on a so-called boom in Quebec and Shingoryeo, the same cannot go to [scratch]ice[/scratch] hockey here. Sure, the hockey games aren't having issues filling up the arenas, and the player numbers remain stable. That said, however, there is a serious challenge the sport faces as the consistent disputes between the Quebecois Hockey League, the Quebecois Hockey Players' Association, and Hockey Quebec, that limits the player pool of national team hockey selections that hasn't helped nobody in keeping the level of interest continue. After a recent reform following a successful Hockey Nations League experiment, the Quebecois pro hockey system's divided into two tiers. The smaller version of the former 28-team self, the QHL, consists of 16 teams, with the 16-team Ligue-Nationale consisting of the remaining teams from the QHL 1.0, three expansion franchises, and Hansa Kotzellach SV, the de facto Kotzellachian national team whose application to join the Quebecois hockey system was approved. While the league itself has high parity on standings, the big 3 of CSKA Quebec, Montreal Koreana and Kingston Knights have been the known names out there.

The Quebecois national team, nicknamed Ice Knights (unlike the traditional Grim Reapers nickname used for most other sports), has stood as one of the most historic teams still competing in the international hockey world. Alongside Valanora, Gregoryisgodistan, Havl and Gyatso-Kai, the Ice Knights have been the name to fear in the 20s of the World Cup of Hockey, but for past decade and half their results have been somewhat inconsistent due to their inability to field the best teams at times. In recent times, the teams sent have varied across the board, whether it be a full-strength (37, 40, 42), a mix of third and fourth liners (38, 39, 41) or junior national teamers (43), but Hockey Quebec hopes there will be some form of consistency established in the future-time.

VOLLEYBALL

Volleyball's part of the big three of indoor winter sports in Quebec and Shingoryeo. Volleyball is enjoyed across both men and women, and in all parts of the country. Both men and women's leagues of the QOVO.1 league, the highest tier of Quebecois professional volleyball, has 12 teams, while the second tier, QOVO.2 leagues, has 16 teams which consists of second-tier sides and development sides for bigger clubs. The QOVO.1 league championship is determined by a lengthy playoffs, with the three-game final to conclude the season in April. Traditionally it is best known for the dominance of Montreal Koreana and CSKA Quebec, although the recent season's outcome may suggest something entirely different with decent parity in both divisions and the women's finals that pitted Swanguard against Winnipeg Winterhawks. Internationally, the Quebecois are considered to be one of the best in women's volleyball, and arguably the best in men's volleyball. The Quebecois have twice placed second in the VWE, and have also won WorldLeague's second edition and placed second three times.

2041-42 Q-League Previews


CSKA QUEBEC

Nicknames: Les Soldats, Capitoliens
Stadium: The Reneegrad, Reneegrad, Capitale-Nationale (Capacity: 89,415)
Kit Sponsor: Royal Quebecois Army (Military)
Manager: Moon Tae-Hong, 43
Starting XI (4-4-2): Okello; Kim - Nappaaluk - Milne-Chamberlain - Matousek; Park - Hertel - Bourassa - Halbert; Kweon - Fernandez (NCS)

Club: For past six decades of Quebecois football, CSKA Quebec has always been the biggest show in the town. But it's not really because they were winning sweepstake of trophies on a yearly basis. Rather, it's due to its diamond stature of being the only top-class club in the National Capital Region where the talent pool is lot smaller than its catchment basin of 7 million people. Owned by the Department of National Defence under the sports society of the Royal Quebecois Forces, CSKA is famous for its academy system that drills the importance of teamwork and defence within its players, providing a crucial backbone for the Quebecois national football team during their heyday years. In the sixteen years of Quebecois absence from international football, they have continued to serve as a consistent powerhouse, most recently winning the Q-League title in 2038-39 season. As for rivalry, they are best known for the legendary Le Classique Quebecois, the most famous of all Quebecois football rivalries, but are also rivals with RC Hanyang and Levis Athletic as well.

Squad: Moon Tae-Hong knows he will be under great pressure to be back on top. Last season they were expected to win it all in the record pace but that's not how it worked out for them, as the club had next to no highlights to recall in what was a catastrophic second half, only to let Montreal Koreana overtake them at the last matchday for the title. The response to such a disappointment, of course, was a massive spending spree, as they picked up Nelson Okello from Vaughan-York Azzurri and Frederic Halbert, and completed the cherry on top with the 25-year old Caraqueno national team captain, Omar Vargas Hernandez.

The strength of the club, once again, is expected to be up in the midfield. The 2040 QIS MVP, Omar-Anthony Bourassa, is now a solid leader and pin of the midfields at age 25, and is now in charge of mentoring Alexandre Park, best known as the other teenager of the team. The fresh signee on his homecoming, Frederic Halbert does well with his defensive responsibilities and plays a crucial role in the art of time-wasting that the Quebec City side has been known under Moon era. Not to mention Marco Hertel, the first of Quebecois legend Xavier Hertel's five children with Princess Anna of Jeruselem, is the best midfielder in Quebec right now, and certainly has the world-class potential. Expect him to be all over the field and display his flairs of creativity with some gamesmanship.

Defensively, the team brings back their entire starting four, with Kim, Nappaaluk, Milne-Chamberlain and Matousek all reaching their mid-20s and height of their game. Kim, Milne-Chamberlain and Matousek, all having played together since their academy years at age 11, are well-arounded backs whom are known for almost never going to the front third of the pitch, while Nappaaluk, who came from Nunavut North Stars three summers ago, is coming nicely into his new position as the libero. On the goals, Nelson Okello is expected to have little problem blocking few occasional shots heading towards his way.

Prediction : 1st. Anything lower than a 2nd place will be downer for them.



DUKHOBORIAN

Nicknames : Ducks, Northern Drillers
Stadium : Foothills Park, Goose Bay, Labrador (Capacity: 21,495)
Kit Sponsor : Nordic Energy (Oil and Gas)
Manager : Michael Aethsytch, 38
Starting XI (4-1-3-2) : Bousquet; Lightstone - Hitchens - Ssekandi (SDR) - Savikataaq; Chopra (SDR); Hong - Perry - Kweon; Garon - O'Byrne

Background Information: A club built by the Dukhoborian refugees from the Novopetrogradian Empire in 1890s-1900s, Dukhoborian stays true to its heritage by continuing to be owned by its local members. In a city of 450,000 with high income, product of both the oil and gas, and livestock industries, this also means that the franchise is not going to be the ones snapping up players, but will always have lots of cash in storage. Similar to the DNA of Labradorians and their personalities, the club's maverick, joy-good-luck approach to all things with their fortune isn't going anywhere and we should feel happy about that. They aren't going to be one of those world-beaters, but they are always going to come to the pitch and fight, and will bring a huge group of fans in any away matches.

Commentary: Michael Aethsytch is in his third year with Dukhoborian and has continued as expected from his father's time. The challenge this offseason was to not fall into any spending trap, as the club recently completed an expensive rebuilding of the Foothills Park that desperately needed one for past three decades. While they did manage to not sell anybody, they were also unable to make possible boosts in the midfield by sacrificing one of their key defensive pieces. Whether that was a good choice or not, we'll see. Still, they did manage to keep the key to their variation of Karela in South Detroiter duo Deepak Chopra and Pierce Ssekandi, after throwing out the previous rumours about selling them to none other than Kingston FC, and that alone should be praised for.

Dukhoborian plays a heavily defensive 4-1-3-2, with Bradley O'Byrne and Henri-Noel Garon providing vast majority of the scoring by the club. On most other teams, Garon would be better used as a shadow striker, but due to both their relatively smaller physical features, the focus has been made on the duo using their speed and the gap of opposition defence. This is also the resultant of the three in the midfield being rudimentary in terms of offensive execution. As a result, crosses have become particularly preferred mode, with hopes that either Garon or O'Byrne will pick it up quickly enough to score. At least they have little to worry on the backfield, however, as Melinda Hitchens, Pierce Ssekendi and Deepak Chopra are well in their primetime lockdown mode. The three, supported nicely by Graeme Lightstone and Lara Savikataaq, should take little time to bring back the chemistry they had sparked the previous two seasons. And if all goes wrong, William Bousquet will find himself in position and ready to execute what he'll be asked to anyway.

Prediction : 15th.



HALIGONIAN

Nicknames: Hals
Stadium: Leith Park (Capacity: 28,740)
Kit Sponsor: Aeroquebec (Airline)
Manager: Leonardo Conavacio, 52
Starting XI (4-3-3): Oh; Rivera - Matheson-Weon - McKechnie - Yi; McKellar ('C') - Bergeron - Montgomery; de Buxhoeveden - Kim - Murphy (SCT)

Background Information : Haligonian was one of the most successful teams to take advantage of the 16-year long Quebecois absence from international football. Founded in 1879 by members of the Schottian community in North End of Halifax, the club is historically one of the stronger teams. However, after their heydays in 1970s and 1980s, they struggled in the Q-League era, usually belonging to one of the worst in the Q-League or the best in the Championship. They have dramatically improved in the 2030s under the direction of Norman Hacker, however, and this was proven with the Q-League title in two years ago (2039-40 season), their first Quebecois league title in 58 years. As with CSKA, Haligonian is known for their smashmouth football that runs counter to the Takil football that is always in vogue in Quebec. And while Halifax, known for its balance of mountains and beaches, hot springs and seafood, as well as world-renowned Halifax International Film Festival (HIFF), is not known for being the football town at all, but the team is fiercely supported by the local Korean-Gaelic population and has enough cash to make differences as needed.

Commentary: You only need two words to describe the Hals' offseason. Leonardo. Conavacio.Norman Hacker, its manager of 17 years who was largely responsible for its return to glory, retired, and there stood a huge task to take a step up. Haligonian then made the signing of the offseason by landing Leonardo Conavacio. The Quebecois international footballing legend decided to permanently return to his home country after just over three decades abroad, and it happens to be Haligonian of all teams. Upon his arrival, he immediately made necessary measures, bringing Lyall Murphy, a Schottian top prospect who were two-time all-Quebecois with Northwestern University. Aside from that the Halifax, Aca. based club stayed out of any notable transfers, even though they did sign 3 other collegiate prospects to add to their depth.

Noah Kim, who broke through the Q-League the past season with 20 goals scored, will lead the troika of forwards, flanked by Pierre de Buxhoeveden and Murphy. de Buxhoeveden is a headscratcher whose excellent physique and positioning is partly neutered by horrible first touch of his, while Murphy is a speed right winger whose knack for the game is underrated.

The hometown boy, Seamus McKellar, grew up idolising Leonardo Conavacio, and is more than thrilled to prove his Midas' touch as a playmaker to Conavacio. On the other hand, tougher challenges are expected for all-arounders Ryane Montgomery and Diane-Michelle Bergeron, who will be expected to focus less on defensive responsibilities and contribute more on offence. The defence has seen some changes as well, as retirement of veterans Ioanna Siriteanu and Hahm Woong-Bin left open for next phase of transition coming up. Collegiate signings Judson Rivera and Leah McKechnie are expected to continue their powerful partnership from their days at California University, while Theo Matheson-Weon and Ericsson Yi stand out little, but also make little mistakes. The most notable acquisition for this summer, Oh Dong-Joon, is the anchor on the goals after seven seasons and seventeen clean sheets with PLI Islanders.

Prediction: 4th. They aren't there yet, but can make deep pushes if all transitions well into Conavacio era.



HAMILTON STEELERS

Nicknames: Steeltown, The Hammer, Hamilton's Finest
Stadium: Barry Johnson's Field, Hamilton, Ontario (Capacity: 23415)
Kit Sponsor: Barry Johnson's (coffee, donuts and fast food)
Manager: Dino Corelli, 49
Starting XI (4-3-3): Lissouba; Dufresne - Fonvizin - Oronhyatekha ('C') - Jenkins; Stevenson-Kim - Goh - Cormack; Brownlee - Martensson - Hyeon

Background Information: A major side coming from the industrial heartland an hour west of Kingston (making it fall just outside of Greater Kingston Area), Steelers incorporate both the working class foundation of the city with the surrounding suburbs, who come from those who are their descendants or commute to the city. Despite its relative proximity to Kingston, it is a city with their own sporting tradition and both the Steelers and gridiron team Tiger-Cats are good examples of it. Interestingly enough, unlike other teams of similarly working class origins, Steelers do not have a particularly memorable era to speak of in recent history, with their last Quebecois Premiership title coming in 1953-54. Still, this doesn't mean that it's a bad team at all- if anything they are rather the opposite- the team stayed on the top flight the entire time Quebec was active on UICA and continued to stay well in shape. They were relegated once during the sixteen years of absence, but made it back after two seasons in waiting, and stood tall and firm in the Q-League for past 8 seasons. Traditionally they are known for a longstanding rivalry against Kingston FC, and Dukhoborians, whom they shared a period relevance in ancient history.

Commentary: Dino Corelli's not going anywhere guys. Taking over the team relegated the season before, he managed to pull off enough bunnies from his top hat (that's ironic, of course) to 1) bring the Steelers back to Premiership his debuting season, 2) avoid relegation zone his sophomore season, and 3) he will probably bring them to their normal, comfy zone of 8th-12th place that we've all come to associate Hamilton's finest for. Not too bad of a start for club legend from good ole days. To go back to the team, it's a solid squad across the board.

Sam Oronhyatekha, the national team captain, is the best centre back in the nation at this point with her highly hexagonal style of play and philanthropical contribution in the local community. She is supported nicely by Guillaume-Alexis Dufresne, Valeri Fonvizin and Mark Jenkins, who are all in their early 20s but have seen plenty of playing time in recent years. In previous season, Corelli made major changes on the forwards by promoting Aron Martensson from the academy and signing Cedrick Hyeon from Mokpo City (League 1). That turned out well and now Hamilton has a serviceable trio of forwards that, if not injured too often, should be 'just' enough to reach their goal. This season the experiment will be done on the midfields, where Richard Cormack will be given plenty of playing time to see if he's worth the gamble now. There's still hope for him, but he tends to make 3 brilliant plays before fumbling in embarrassing fashion on the fourth play. We'll have to see if he will reduce that to every 6 to 8 plays. Werther-William Lissouba, who just turned 30, is going to be a solid factor on the goals as well.

Prediction: 8th.



HEART OF SAGUENAY

Nicknames: Hearts, The Dancing Club
Stadium: Apple Bowl (Capacity: 87,430)
Kit Sponsor: Sowha (Donnaconna - Soft Drink)
Manager: Jang Yun-Ha, 52
Starting XI (3-1-4-2): Trézéguet; Yi - Pelaez - Ondrášek; Seo; A. Cyr - Yoon - A. Peñaranda (NCS) - Bush-Sprenger; Aronsson - Bousquet-Cyr

Background Information: The largest side coming from Saguenay region, best known for its gridiron traditions, Heart of Saguenay have had a long history of being the club for 280,000 Valladar-Quebecois living in the northern half of Saguenay province. The club began with its small group of supporters coming from rural Valladar towns, but matured into a major side that is loved by Sagueneeans on the north side of St. Lawrence River (the south side, much smaller in population, supports Olympique de Rimouski) long time ago. Producer of occasional high-quality talent who usually get poached by bigger sides, the Hearts saw their fortunes improve about 6-7 years ago with a group of highly-talented players. Over time the seven who broke through with the team would move on, and now we only have 3 of them remaining. But in their place the Hearts found adequate replacements and continued to play well.

Commentary: This season's the Hearts' year, not because they are the likeliest to win the league or get relegated, but rather because of the direction they will have to take. The club, ten years into the Jang era, is one of the oldest in Quebec and needs to make their decision on how to appropriately transition into the next generation of players. The team's top scorer previous season was Hjalmar Aronsson with 17 goals in 29 starts, while he's shortly followed by Henri-Michel Bousquet-Cyr with 13 goals in 21 matches. Aronsson, now 31, has certainly gotten slower but remains a formidable force. The only signing by the Chicoutimi side Evander Bush-Sprenger, a highly-marketable midfielder with tattoos. He is supported by Isabelle Yoon, the second piece whose playing experience and leadership are all too valuable not to be recognised by opponents. Herménégilde Trézéguet, the third member of the big seven that marked their second place run four years ago, is expected to face a lot of easy and tough shots as twenty-year olds Michael Seo and Milos Ondrášek are propelled to starting position in a move to accelerate the transition process.

Prediction: 9th.



IQALUIT RED ARMY

Nicknames: The Northern Wall, Great Wall of Iqaluit, Bricks
Stadium: Iqaluit Stadium, Iqaluit, Nunavut (Capacity: 102,450)
Kit Sponsor: Narvik (E-commerce)
Manager: Sergei Kondratyuk-Llnagaay, 65
Starting XI (5-1-3-1): Kigatilik; Nakasuk - Ritcey - Czernin - Do - S. Piugattuk; Hansen; Bhatt - K. Piugattuk - Brasseur; Noh

Background Information: Iqaluit is a cold, desolate place of 750,000 people and 250,000 hockey rinks. With an average winter temperature of -27'C, It is by far the coldest major city in Quebec, and it shows right with the club that began as the football team of the RQAF/RQA/RQN Iqaluit. The northern powerhouse and one of two major Iqaluit sides, they are their own icons. The Northern Way- the shutdown defence, the counterattack, and the trust- has produced some of the finest defenders including Eugene Cohen and Leonardo Conavacio (for 2 seasons, by the way). The difficulty to bring free agents to the northern half of Quebec has caused the team to focus on youth and development- and they are always looking for foreign and domestic players looking to show their difference before heading elsewhere for greater sum of cash. Despite its stature, however, don't expect the Red Army to be a small-market team- it does fill the Iqaluit Stadium with regular sellouts after all. It's a big-market team behaving like a small-market team, not because of its management, but because of its geographical limitations.

Commentary: The Red and Whites had a fairly safe season last year with a 13th finish, as a consistent form the team has come to be associated with made all work well. Besides, Serhiy Kondratyuk-Llnagaay knows what wins them home games and what they can do to counterpunch their opponents when away. Unfortunately, they will have to sail the seas without Simon Jensen; the team's star defender died in a car crash near his Attawapiskat home, and that left the team facing a particularly grim offseason to start with. Karim Ritcey is a solid replacement, but replacing Jensen, the previous year's XI selection, is next to impossible- even for a defensively stout team like the IRA (ono). Aside from that, they return the team mostly similar from the previous season and with all them, one more year of experience. Unfortunately, the midfields is the biggest piece of the puzzle. The retirement of Tanya Aglukark also left them a gigantic hole in the midfield that essentially ensures even more defensive responsibilities on 18-year old Sanjay Bhatt and 26-year old Leonie Brasseur. At least, Noh Seung-Weon will be able to feed off the long ball with the rangey leaps and mangey hair of his on display, but there's only so much you can do when there's limited help. While playing in cold, snowy Iqaluit for the home games help, it remains to be seen on whether they can actually score any, if enough, to survive the relegation battle.

Prediction : 18th.



KINGSTON FC

Nicknames: The Reds, Jacobites
[region-tag]Stadium: [/region-tag]OVO Field (Capacity: 30,460)
Kit Sponsor: CPM (Donnacona - Bank)
Manager: Johan Achinioti-Jönsson, 61
Starting XI (3-1-2-4): Banos; Merkeley - Ethier - Kamyashinsky ('C'); Uhm; Orosio - Park; Yi - Guweddeko (SDR) - Chae - Swyripa

Background Information : When it comes to Honam Football, we come to remember the good ole Reds. Located in the heart of Downtown Kingston, they were consistently among the big-spenders of Q-League by the end of their accreditation under UICA, and now they will be able to hopefully improve the squad even further with splash signings made. In past sixteen years they were among the leaders who tried to bring Royal Kingdom of Quebec back to international footballing stage. While largely unfruitful, the amount of international cash saved was instead used to save up and also make domestic transfers, eventually culminating in their 2039-40 Q-League title. With the international football now in firm focus, the stinkin' rich ownership group of Honam Sports and Entertainment is expected to continue their free-spending ways. Their move from Pavel Wilson Stadium, which they share with Kingston Argonauts (QFL), to comfier, brand new domains of OVO Field should prove to serve as a statement of interest for the team that is applying to make it to the next level sporting academics *(graduate school admissions reference).

Commentary: Everybody knows Kingston FC needs to rebound. The previous season's drop to 9th place, only a year after winning the Q-League title, was shocking to everybody. Nobody's happy about it, and that's all the reason that is needed for Johan Achinioti-Jönsson to aim big, go hard and whatnot this season. Fortunately enough, Kingston FC should have more than enough on their squad to at least tantalise their opponents. As a team they are led by the four horsemen of Roderick Yi, Eddie Guweddeko, Chae Bong-Doo, and Marcus Swyripa are all back with high expectations and magnificent goals. Chae and Swyripa are master technicians who, if they overcome their excessive fouling, have the national team potential, while Guweddko possesses exceptional power and energy to the game that is best described with 5 headers (out of 21 goals) scored the previous season. Among them, however, they are best remembered for their superstar Roderick Yi, whose on-ball movements are clean and efficient, is a darn good smooth talker into the opponent defences and is expected to score 30 this season.

The problem with this team, however, is not the ceiling, but the system it runs upon. Even in Quebec, where such display of firewagon football is ever so prominent, having defensive game of some form is still essential to survive. For example, Ben Merkeley and Evan Uhm coming out of position were the reasons why they suffered enough second-half downturn and ultimately too many losses. Unfortunately, the team is not really the one to make proper adjustments and make signings on the backend. Ultimately, there's only so much can Jean-Michel Banos do as relatively undermanned and overexposed goalkeeper. If they don't fix that, they will continue to fall well short of their ceiling.

Prediction: 5th. Fix the defence and IFCF will come to you.



MONTREAL IMPACT

Nicknames: Fleur-de-Lis
Stadium: CO2 Arena, Montreal, Montreal (Capacity: 34,837)
Kit Sponsor: Avian (Electronics)
Manager: Mohamed Karoui, 63
Starting XI (4-1-3-2): van der Merwe; Kim - Bernier-Legault - Ngolo - Brown; Masson; Langlet-Lallana - Andjaparidze ('C') - DeLuca-Champagne; Duclos - Cha

Background Information: Known by most b00mers as 'the third Montreal team' due to being outshadowed by the traditional rivalry between Montreal Koreana and Montreal City. Fortunately, the team stayed true to its fans of Southeastern Montreal, and played safe, eventually overtaking City whose financial mismanagement dropped them to a league-mandated punishment. The Dufresne-Vignault family owned the franchise for 120 years until the family squabble caused massive discord in the side.

Commentary: While Koreana made a huge comeback to upset CSKA Quebec in their championship run last season, Impact came very close to relegation. The Impact, just coming off ownership changes and shaky front office personnel for previous seasons that St. John's Arsenal is repeating now, stayed the entire time well below the mid-table they were expected to finish around this time last year. The club is finally entering some period of stability now, but also had to bid goodbye to the national team midfielder/right wing Daniel Kasaboski-Wilcox, who gave the team an impressive sum of money upon his departure to Zenit Attawapiskat. The club hopes that Sylas Langlet-Lallana or club graduate Jean-Andre DeLuca-Champagne will step up in their place.

The backend is covered by 37-year old Rodney van der Merwe, who has been their starter for 16 years and still feel as if he's 13 turning 17. Ahead of him stand defensive quartet with different age and skillsets - the flair and offensive tendencies of wingbacks Skylar Brown and Kim Yun-Mi run in opposites to Xavier Bernier-Legault and Ngolo, whose rough handling of the ball limit their transition game to long ball. This is then complemented by Pascal Masson, who is expected to help Langlet-Lallana and DeLuca-Champagne round out their development as needed. Team captain Mikheil Andjaparidze is a two-time selection to Commonwealth Games teams when he was younger, and is not going anywhere in both literal and figurative terms. He's certainly slower, but every other facet of his vision and physique remain well in standing, and that's a good thing for the team that lacks stability. Yvette Duclos was the major signing of the Impact this offseason and is expected to make heavy impact to the team with her pace and signature left-foot volley.

Prediction : 13th.

MONTREAL KOREANA

Nicknames: Le Grand M, The Blue Devils
Stadium: The Samseongoloondongjang, Montreal, Montreal (Capacity: 84,375)
Kit Sponsor: Kinetic Arts (Video Games)
Manager: Jannick Kontiola, 49
Starting XI (4-2-1-3): G. Kim; Tam-Moh - Garfunkel-Marchand - Raeff - Allard; Y. Kim ('C') - Vujadinovic; Jeong; Lattanzio (NCS) - Fillion - Park

Background Information: In an average foreign fan's view, Montreal Koreana represents the Quebecois football. Historically, Montreal Koreana has been the biggest and most accomplished club in Quebecois history. Having been around since 1893 as the football club of the Koreana Society's Montreal Branch (think of Maccabi, for RLstates comparisons), the club has won a Quebecois title in every decade but the 1970s, when the club was at its darkest years. In the UICA era, they struggled lot more than their Newfoundlander rivals, but was still highly relevant, and continued to be its usual self during the sixteen years of absence. As a club, they are located in Koreana District of Montreal and share a historic but imbalanced rivalry with Montreal City, and a smaller but more entertaining one with the Impact.

Commentary: Entering this offseason Montreal Koreana had little to worry about, as it remained relatively stable. The previous season's miraculous win, while impressive given the number of injuries the team had the previous season, ended in a low note with the departure of Angelo Gelinas, its manager of previous six seasons, to Marinos Metropolis. Fortunately they quickly mended the gap on their helm by promoting assistant manager Jannick Kontiola to the chief of the staff. The team he has in front isn't a bad one to start with.

On the left, we have Romeo Lattanzio, a notorious tank whose fames off the pitch is just as well documented as his penetration into the corner. Park Jeong-Doo is the best goalscoring threat in Quebec right now, with his interest in testing waters abroad highly noted by the followers of Q-League the past few seasons. To the centre, of course, Michel Filion serves as the shadow striker who feeds off nicely from the crosses. Marianne Jeong is a highly efficient CAM whose endurance has been questioned in her first two seasons with Koreana, but since has proven her detractors wrong. Right behind her, Vujadinovic and Yanic Kim are highly capable midfielders who have stood tall through the development pyramid with Koreana, and are now 29 and 30. Age may have given them slower pace, but also gifted them further insight on understanding the game, and they are the leaders that the team really benefits from. The backline is a solid four that can do whatever they wish to do when not caught out of position - superstar libero in Lucien Raeff, the brute force of Mathieu Allard and Eli Garfunkel-Marchand, and not to mention the outlaw Jerry Tam-Moh. Gaetan Kim is a 28 year old who saw plenty of playing time when he first started out, but fell out of starting job against Henri Noh. Now, with the Caraqueno returning to his home club back in Nuevo Caracas, the starting job is his after. He's a top-class keeper whose abilities are always going to be challenged because of Koreana club's love of the Takil brand of football, but is expected to do his own with the wins. With a very well arounded team, Koreana is expected to dip for a little bit, but should be a surefire winner the very next year. Koreana's youth developmental academy is top-class too, and they can also rely upon a bit more depth that should come up by then.

Prediction: 3rd. As with Haligonian, the change in leadership will cause some teething issues and growing pains. But once they're over that, then they are going to be back to their usual selves.

OLYMPIQUE DE RIMOUSKI

Nicknames: Piques, Big O
Stadium: The Steelyard, Rimouski, Saguenay (Capacity: 19,440)
Kit Sponsor: ROSCO (Steelworks)
Manager: Devane Miller, 52
Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Nam; Rombaugh (SDR) - Daguenais-Bizet - Yoon-Goo - Boissonault; Smolkine - R. Ashoona; Gilbert - Larionov -Schneiderlin; Min

Background Information: Olympique's dotted green and yellow jerseys, like the team and its supporters of heavily Valladar origins, are heavily distinguishable features of those coming from Rimouski. The Olympique pride themselves on playing flashy, pass-oriented style of the play, and they have been home to some of the nation's finest prospects since the club's founding in 1889. Until early 2000s, Olympique was one of the richest clubs in the country, supported by ROSCO whose continued financial success keep the city from turning into London or Hamilton in late 2000s. Still, during and after the Quebecois time in the UICA/IFCF, the team ended up witnessing many ups and downs of its fortunes, with their closest call including surviving the relegation-promotion playoffs two seasons ago. Fortunately, they have rebounded well and made their bank off collegiate signings the previous offseason (2040), before miraculously rebounding their fortunes to finish 4th. With the decade-high now established, the Olympique is looking to hopefully win their first Q-League title since 2003-04.

Commentary: After a magic turnaround with the Olympique, Sergio Duquez left Rimouski to take over for the South Detroit national team, causing Devane Miller, yet another Quebecois NT legend, to take over the team after a decade leading the PLI Islanders to relevance. The first thing he had to do, unfortunately, were to get as much cash out of two inevitable departures in always-trustworthy Eugene Carmody (Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa) and superstar Lucien Raeff. That had meant that much of their formidable defence and half their offensive IQ in the previous season was gone. Fortunately enough, most of the team's lineup remains intact on elsewhere, and that means that Miller will have enough to work around with for now. Pierre-Antoine Schneiderlin, the son of the Quebecois footballer best known for his time with Falourr in Eura, is now the right wing to take over. He's not exactly at the level we're used to be, but should be a fine substitute as they continue to look for solid options. Recently-married pair of Sebastien Daguenais-Bizeta and Janet Yoon-Goo anchor the defence that sweeps the ball away with confidence, while Ray Ashoona and Ilya Smolkine look to continue their progress from the rookie campaign. Then, Min Dong-Jin is still the same old self, and at 27, is aiming to score his 100th league goal this season. His nose for the net is dazzling as always, and so is his love of taking shirts off after every other goal and getting yellow carded. The true hometown boy who played all his life on both the local schools and on Olympique system, he is that one guy who's going to be part of the Piques' fans' folktales for many decades ahead.

Prediction: 7th. Believe me, it's a very good team they have over there. But it's not the best. Who knows though- a couple of X-factors kicking in and the team may be off to lot better stages than my median.



OTTAWA FURY

Nicknames: The Hilltops, Backburners of the Grove
Stadium: The Charterhouse, Ottawa, Outaouais (Capacity: 33,150)
Kit Sponsor: Pomegranate (Electronics)
Manager: Bud 'The Rocky' Grant, 49
Starting XI (4-3-2-1): Barrette; McKeough - Yim-Duvernay - Hussein-Wang - Hinchley; Perros - Hong - O. Peñaranda (NCS, 'C'); Durkheim - Al-Bashwati; Austin

Background Information: With their past three stadiums built right next to the University of Ottawa and the surrounding student housing projects, the Fury are located at the heart of Ottawa's long history of professional sports. In their 130 years of history, they are particularly notorious for many ownership changes, but manage to stay on top two tiers of Quebecois football pyramid with relative ease. Nowadays they range between bottom half of Q-League and top half of Championship, but with their reputation intact and solid. Unfortunately, the recent years' budgetary restrictions left the team in a quite dreadful spot for....

Commentary: ...it's an universal fact that Ottawa Fury's been broke and gambling on their debtors' money for past three seasons. The team manager Bud 'The Rocky' Grant had only few weeks to sign 4 collegiate players (mid-tier signings on what's a pretty solid class of graduating athletes) and reorganise the team after 3 starters either retired or moved onto other Quebecois clubs. As a result, the team lacks steel on defence and David Barrette convinces nobody that he's a realistic option on goal. The midfielder corp is fairly average, with Caraqueno refugee Osvaldo Peñaranda leading the way as the only foreigner captain of this season. Brianne Peros and Ben Hong are solid academy products but perhaps, their leafiness isn't a good thing when the team's fighting to escape relegation. Up front, Rodrigo Austin Milhoes is a flashy striker who knows how to score in very limited opportunities he's given. Of course, the problem is that they are now relying too much on academy players and free signings which, for all the merits of development, isn't a good sign of a time trying to survive. It is unlikely they go the way of the Brenecian side South Rathia over twenty years ago, but they better hope injury bug won't hit them or else they'll come pretty close to it.

Prediction: 20th. This team's just awful.


PERCE TOWN

Nicknames: Argos
Stadium: Parc de Patriotes
Kit Sponsor: Parken's (Dairy, from Norrehavn)
Manager: Yi Seung-Hyeon, 58
Starting XI (4-4-2): Prevost; Kabongo - McLean - Hong - Davis; Ferguson - Grondin-Martin - Park - Chochaeva; Giguere - Kim

Background Information: On a vibrant maritime city known for the headquarters of the Royal Coast Guard headquarters, Perce Town is a small town club that is known for its significance to Quebecois football. And of course, representing that town and also the Gaspesie province, is Perce Town, a side with its own story of rise. Traditionally a borderline Q-League/Championship side, Perce Town broke out of what many fans thought was the club's ceiling and is now well entrenched within top 10. This is partly due to the Argos' advantage in having the priority access to the talent in Gaspesie province, as well as its academy side that's headed by none other than Eric Varsteeg, brother of the former Avenida Principal superstar.

Commentary: This may be the best Perce Town squad we've ever seen in living memory, with Yi finally equipped to have excellent depth across the board. It does not have a particularly scary weakness, and is quite well built up with balance between the local veterans and youth academy products. Pace, speed and grit are everywhere and growing in the drugged waters of Parc des Patriotes and the Roche-Belanger facilities. Jeremy Giguere is a formidable poacher who scores not often but is clutch when his services are asked. He is nicely supported by teenager Kim Jong-Yoon and Universite de Gaspe signing Yana Chochaeva, just one of three they signed from UdeG or Hampden College this summer. Chochaeva is expected to add solid transition role combining with Eloise Grondin-Martin, Dani Chavez Ferguson and Channing Park to form a steel-like unit. Defensively Loic Kabongo leads the way in a strong back four that knows how to shut down opponents as asked, while Melvin Hong hopes to survive in a race against time as the club's patience with his overweight self may be running very thin.

Prediction: 6th.


PLI ISLANDERS

Nicknames: Isles, the Peggy-O's, Purple Flash
Stadium: Bannockburn Stadium, Charlottetown, Acadie (Capacity: 10,890)
Kit Sponsor: Visit PLI (Tourism)
Manager: Charles Loranger, 35
Starting XI (3-1-4-2): Simard; Barras - McQuaid - W. Goh; S. Goh; Rimbaud-Charest - Webster - Maeng - Friesen; MacKinnon - Wright

Background Information: PLI Islanders are that one club on the island that was always been there in top two tiers for over 110 years (they first made the jump in 1936), gradually developing its relevance. The Islanders, coming from Prince Laurent Island that is famous for seasonal industries and pastoral sceneries, found themselves in solid foothold to the top-tier football with strong average attendance (it's an island of 200,000 people, guys) and excellent management in the past three decades. In past decade, the Islanders finished at the high of 6th (2036-37) under Devane Miller's managership.

Commentary: Charles Loranger had a particularly overwhelming and frustrating offseason. His takeover of the club as the interim replacement of Devane Miller, who left the club for Montreal Koreana after a decade in charge, has brought little excitement and grave worries for the club as they found themselves with only an annoucement of Guy Rimbaud-Charest on a loan from Winnipeg United. The previous four years saw the club finding itself well above the relegation zone, placing 10th, 9th, 14th and 11th to give the club well-needed confidence boost. Unfortunately, Miller's departure also came with Oh (Haligonian), Halbert (CSKA) and a couple of depth players, and there's no doubt that the club is in a huge trouble.

After scoring 6 goals in 15 appearances last season, Jane MacKinnon is ready to step up for the club on offence and she will be backed up by Levinson Wright. Among the midfielders, Rimbaud-Charest and Rudy Maeng, the brother-in-laws coming from Winnipeg's South High School, are expected to be simple and no-nonsense in their craft, making up for their lack of vision. In the back three, Owen McQuaid is the anchor who, when not injured, can deliver with stability to the defence that needs a lot of it. Leon Simard is the youngest starting goalkeeper with the club as the eighteen year old is expected to do all he can to beat the odds and survive his baptism of fire in professional football.

Prediction: 17th




SHERBROOKE NOKSAEKJEONSA

Nicknames: Noksaekjeonsa, Green Warriors
Stadium: Parc de Volontaires (Capacity: 36,730)
Kit Sponsor: Magnus (Automobile)
Manager: Pierre-Ian Noh, 59
Starting XI (4-1-2-1-2): Park; Baek - Jovanovic - Duclos-Desharnais - Lee-Tremblay; Yang; Carmody - McCauley ('C'); Namur-Jaures; Kweon - Diressa

Background Information: There are those with longer history but not necessarily the enough push to make it to the top....and then there's Sherbrooke. Located in the middle of mountain range near the Semar border, Sherbrooke is a regional centre of 450,000 people famous for its recreational activities and petite townships in the surrounding mountains. Traditionally an extremely volatile franchise, the club's fortunes really took off during the latter years of Quebecois participation in the UICA, they came into relevance with the new ownership under Magnus Motors. Since then they never looked back, consistently placing in the top 8 of Q-League, even though they were just as well known for falling well short of the goal with whoopsie-daisie signings and last-month slides, to explain for only one Q-League championship won during the 'sixteen years gone'. With excellent facilities and very good youth academy, Sherbrooke always comes up with something new to surprise us all.

Commentary: As a team the Green Warriors were both consistent and inconsistent enough last season to finish third, and this frustrated everybody. With the team remaining the same as last year, aside from a couple of academy signings, the departure of Adel Abdelghadir to Trojana Condommakers FC and a retirement of backup goalkeeper Santeri Seppala, one can only wonder what will be up next. Pierre-Ian Noh, however, is a manager who loves experimenting with his players and their formations, and would do anything to get his matchups right. Sherbrooke plays the never-say-die style of Quebecois Takil only rivalled by Koreana and Kingston FC, and with his personnel now comparable to the army of Inferi, one can only imagine the sacrifice of all but minimal forms of defence, and lots of 7-5s and 6-4s on their scoreboard.

Mercurial striker, Eloise Kweon, pairs up nicely with the defending golden boot Mamadou Diressa, who's now accomplished all he's wanted at age 30 on a 37-goal season. The quartet of midfielders in Yang, Carmody, McCauley and Namur-Jaures love playing a video-game-ramped up version of Tiki-Taka and aren't afraid to jump into the action either. Eric Namur-Jaures, in particular, has profited off nicely with the presence of Kweon and Diressa to score some as well, and it's a pretty sight.

Prediction: 3rd.



ST. JOHN'S ARSENAL

Nicknames: Gunners, Newfies, the Pointers
Stadium: Blue Point Stadium, St. John'sm Newfoundland (Capacity: 67,430)
Kit Sponsor: Aeroomni (Aerospace)
Manager: Brock Kemerer-Lascelles, 45
Starting XI (4-1-3-2): O'Neill; Nelson-Joo - Goh - McDonagh - Dubois; Eksi; Lambert - Ostergaard (NHV) - Casey; Khedira - van Robben ('C')

Background Information: The only Newfoundland side to have not been relegated from the top flight in 125 years (they were last relegated in 1917, when they were still named His Majesty's Arsenal), St. John's Arsenal is one club that always bring forth the history and taste of Newfoundland. In the years of Quebecois participation in international football, they have been successful, with their finest glory coming from semifinals appearance at the UICA Globe Cup.

The side, known for its output of legendary talent in Hazel van Robben and Corinne Martel-Burns, was one of few Quebecois clubs particularly hit hard during the sixteen years gone. The retirement of Kurt Hlasek, the longtime manager of 18 seasons, two years ago only made things go worse for the club, as the front office's transfer indecisiveness and inability to funnel proper cash into the club has caused the historical club many problems. As a result, it's unlikely that they would spend big money in the offseason transfer market. Still, Arsenal's continuing to produce top-class (though yet-to-be-mature at this point in time) talent, and with their excellent facilities and the home advantage (but then the entire island is, you can argue), they should remain to be relevant in the Quebecois footballing scene.

Commentary: In the offseason that was disappointing for second straight season, the only highlight was the return of Hazel van Robben to her home club. Her signing, which runs just for this season, is expected to give the club a much-needed boost in firepower while its group of young forwards are still developing, and also give van Robben a fitting end to her illustrious career that was mostly spent in Magnaeus City, CD FAS and 1830 Cathair.

Aside from that, the club stayed out of signing beyond a couple of collegiate players, Rodion Kazakov and Angela Santarelli, in the manners true to Arsenal of past 4-5 seasons. That's fine, really, because St. John's is not one of those who are just not going to sign anybody. The issue in St. John's, however, is that the current Arsenal side is a poorly managed team, led by a Kemerer-Lascelles whose excessive loyalty towards the 4-1-3-2 formation leaves many concerned. Quite unfortunate because the squad St. John's still has is still a darn good culmination of pieces.

Gordon Nelson-Joo, the twenty-year old from Gander, is a swift wingback and youngest member of the back four that has two-time XI selection Kelsey McDonagh and aging veterans Roger Goh and Jeanne-Joannie Dubois. Fatima Eksi is a surprising selection on the CDM after quietly signing with the Arsenal from University of Kingston, and may end up being a possible x-factor to what's otherwise a shaky line. The trio of Samuel Lambert, Heidi Ostergaard, and Cee Lo Casey are all brilliant in a couple of specialties, but have struggled to make their combination work in triples. Still, the excitement is there as the 18-year old Mohamed Khedira, and 21-year old Barrett O'Reilly foresee themselves with greater production. Playing with Hazel van Robben can do that to you, and that's what the fans will come to watch their games for.

Prediction: 10th.

SWANGARD ATHLETIC

Nicknames: The Cygnus, Athletic
Stadium: VisitMB.que Arena (Capacity: 29,563)
Kit Sponsor: Pacific Casino (Entertainment)
Manager: Marianne Godbut-Sweeney, 60
Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Koo; Green ('C') - Kinley - Béland-Goyette - Smolkin; Lester - Sarrazin - Nam-Simmonds; G. Ashoona; Lumley - Byeon

Background Information: Prince Eric is the ocean-fringed metropolis bordering the northern end of Northandryun Passage that faces the Salamantic Oceans, against the mountain ranges that separates the Manitoban West Coast with northern tablelands. Renowned across Atlantian Oceania for its range of options in outdoor sports thanks to surrounding mountains and ocean, Prince Eric is a city with particularly high number of high-level and community athletic participation and footprint in the national scale. This reflects into the Swanguard Athletic's community-ownership model, one of few out there in the first two tiers of Quebecois football these days. While the older generation of football fans remember them for their eighteen years spent in the Quebecois Championship, Swanguard is now better known for the 3 Q-League titles they won under the direction of Marianne Godbut-Sweeney, who is now entering her 22nd year in the league. During her time, Swanguard Athletic came out of its long slumber in the Championship and finally stepped up, before making itself as a powerhouse with the core that came up right after the borders were closed for international football. Unfortunately, they are facing the same problem that Hearts and Steelers are dealing on their own. Is it a good time to cash off their elderly talent or spend more in hopes of one more push before the cuts?

Commentary: Of course, everything lies upon continuation of heydays for Marianne Godbut-Sweeney. The Prince Eric native, now in her 22nd year as the team's manager, has put together a powerhouse that is now desperately and expectedly aging and needs even more power to overcome their possible adversity. Picking up Konstantin Smolkin from University of Saskatchewan and Rose Nam-Simmons from University of Goose Bay was one of those moves, adding further stability and youth into the team that's on top 3 of Q-League for its age. Aside from that, the team has stayed out of further signings, preferring to gamble on future transfers in a cycle or two when tough choices ought to be made on the future of its core.

15 years into her Q-League career, Eileen Green has stayed ethereal as the top-class left back and is expected to continue her top calibre play and leadership this season. At age 34, she's no short of questions as he has discussed retirement for past season or two, but is expected to play for the next two or three seasons on a high level of play at least. This is followed by the return of Arnaud Béland-Goyette and Nadia Kinley, two longtime veterans with Swanguard, and the joining of Smolkin only adds to what could be the most complete backfield in Q-League. As for the rest of the squad, they are rounded out nicely by solid depth across the board. Pierre-Luc Sarrazin, even on his last season of professional football at age 38, may be the most important player for Swanguard Athletic. Mature, well-established and universally idolised leader of the club and Prince Eric sporting community, Sarrazin still has the pace and durability that gave him the nickname 'Air Tank' and there's no doubt that he will be dearly missed in the coming years. Georges Ashoona, if he succeeds in overcoming the downturn of his form that was too noticeable in the second half of last season, is expected to contribute heavily as the primary ball handler in offence. Lumley and Byeon are solid duo of forwards that are expected to be bolstered further by Harald Jespersen, a key substitute option for the squad that needs them more than ever.

Prediction: 11th. The club's decline has begun.


UMNAMA'KIK-INVERNESS 1877

Nicknames: 77ers, Highlanders
Stadium: Galway Park, Sydney, Acadie (Capacity: 10,890)
Kit Sponsor: Eason (Shipbuilding)
Manager: Benoit-Clement Boyd-Allen, 62
Starting XI (4-1-3-2): McInnis ('C'); Wilson - Ascough - Chapdelaine - McMorris; Sigurdsson; Heo - MacDougall - Jones-Wilde; Ha - Whelan

Background Information: Originally a sizeable island on the northeastern tip of Acadie province, Cape Breton Island's traditionally known for coal (earlier) and automobiles industries (nowadays), as well as famous series of trails that go through its Welsh-speaking towns. The major football club there, the Umnama'kik-Inverness 1877, has seen the successful rise too with the club, since the 2000s, rose from the League 2 to the top half of Q-League. Now owned in a 50-50 partnership of fans and Gwangmoo Motors, the second-largest automobile company in Quebec, the 77ers have long gone past their small team days and believe there's more to come in their future. They do know that the current core they have is the one they need to win a cup or two, before they will have to look inwards to find further talent.

Commentary: Manager Benoit-Clement Boyd-Allen, has been managing this team since 2014, may be reaching for the highest of stars on year 27 of his season. It all began when they signed the QIS MVP, Sinead MacDougall, from Farrer University on a smash hit deal, and is followed up by signing left winger/midfielder Heo Myeong-Heon from championship side London FC.

The previous season's 5th place finish was marked with a noticeable surprise by many on how they had been sleeping on Ha Yeong-Jong and Nancy Whalen duo, who contributed for 67 goals. Unfortunately, Ha is out with sports hernia for some time, meaning that Whalen will have to deke past defenders with all of her speed. The strength of this team is in the midfields, where Sinead MacDougall should shine in the centre to replace the Filip Vujadinovic (Koreana). Right off the bat, she's expected to be one of the top two players on the team, with the other being Nelson Ha, the 29-year old team captain who grew two blocks away from the town. Jones-Wilde and Heo are both smooth technicians who have little offensive capabilities, but are nonetheless excellent in transition. Finally, the 77ers have a fairly flexible back four and their pieces combine with Sigurdsson to shine overall. Glenn McInnis is an above-average goalkeeper but they may need to find a replacement for him soon as the guy's now 34.

Prediction: 8th. The 77ers are definitely ready, but are they really ready? Not sure about it yet.



VAUGHAN-YORK AZZURRI

Nicknames: The Greens, Communists
Stadium: Beyreuth Park (Capacity: 17,000)
Kit Sponsor: Kingston Dominion Bank (Commerce)
Manager: Ben-Ben Harkness, 35
Starting XI (4-2-4): Nam; Noel - Chun-Kim - Petruzzo - Shainberg; Lavezzi - Iacovetta; Capaldi ('C') - DiMaio - Yeom - Tsehelska

Background Information: Best known as the other Kingston club in the scene, Vaughan-York Azzurri is a historic club with loyal support. Its fanbase comes from a much smaller catchment basin than its Downtown rival, having largely been based around York region and its Italian and Portuguese-speaking communities. As the minority groups became part of the mainstream Quebecois society, so did the club, but their adherence towards Le Takil Quebecois remain well into this day. Aside from their rivalry with Kingston FC and other Kingston clubs, Azzurri is best remembered for their Coupe du Roi win the past May, when they beat Montreal Koreana at The Reneegrad.

Commentary: Azzurri's chance of survival is not good, simply because of what happened to them during the offseason. Earlier this summer, they had to sell longtime stars Okello (CSKA) and Sarrazin (Swanguard) who both refused to sign on an extension with a year left because of their frustration with the team's inability to prove that they are ready to do better. They did bring back academy product Roberto DiMaio, a solid option on any forward position, from Umnama'kik Inverness 1877, and they have enough young guys to replace the losses. Still, they don't have enough goals on both the front and the back to score. They do have good talents scattered across the board; Noah Shainberg is a tempting option on the right fullback after showing promise the previous season, while Guillermo Lavezzi and Danielle Yeom are trustworthy on completing their mission. But the team lacks much spark beyond their cohesion and appears quite distressed from the loss of the team's heart and soul. It's a good team, but even more of a miracle if they survive. Using 4-2-4 on a team that cannot afford to experiment the Quebecois vogue isn't wise after all.

Prediction: 19th.



WINNIPEG UNITED

Nicknames: The U, South Side Club
Stadium: Alannis Varela Stadium, Winnipeg, Manitoba (Capacity: 48,549)
Kit Sponsor: Jaeil (Confectionary)
Manager: Percival Yoon, 53
Starting XI (4-4-2): Ferreira; Normanton - Yim - Tuliaupupu - Pelaez; Ibanez - Garcia - Parker - Desbarats; Park - Donovan ('C')

Background Information: Winnipeg is the provincial capital of Manitoba (metropolitan population: 2,348,190) that is known for all the wrong things; depressing winters, shantytown, gang violence, and neverending plains that make you even more depressed and worried the moment you head to the suburbs. But this kind of depressing cities also bring some of the most popular football clubs int he nation, and Winnipeg United is one of them. Longtime rivals with the northern side Spartak, Winnipeg United is universally adored in the southern half of Winnipeg. It shows on their matchdays where the wave of yellow and black cover the city, and those on the south side stayed loyal to the team's highly fluctuating form in their years of absence (highest: 4th, lowest: 17th). Still, dealing with the possibility of relegation and joining their rivals Spartak scares everybody, and fans right not just hope that the financial trouble from the front office's mismanagement will end at some point.

Commentary: The sole spotlight will be on them, as the Spartak's relegation the previous year left United as the Winnipeg's sole team remaining in the Q-League. Of course, that doesn't mean that their struggle will be discussed in lesser fashion either. They still have an uphill battle to survive, as the team is currently in shambles in both on and off the turf. Ferreira is still a serviceable goalkeeper at age 28, while Lauren Park and Elton Parker Jr are both solid in their positions. Who knows, maybe the ex-hoodlum Raheem Donovan is expecting a 20-goal campaign too. But then is that this team's perhaps too outmanned on defence...

Prediction: 16th.



ZENIT ATTAWAPISKAT

Nicknames: Rocketeers, Z-Faktor
Stadium: City of Attawapiskat Stadium (Capacity: 42,340)
Kit Sponsor: Quebecom (Telecommunications)
Manager: Colin McQuaid, 46
Starting XI: Dyr-Namestnikov; Park - Rasmussen - Gunnarsson - Siirilä; St-Cyr - Kim - Imeretinski ('C') - Kasaboski-Wilcox; Mandusic - Kjaer

Background Information: The star of Northwestern Quebec, Zenit Attawapiskat is the crown jewel from two provinces of heavily-Nordic population (this means the northern half of the Norrish Union, of course), Abitibi-Temiscamingue and Northwest. With their constantly-renovated City of Attawapiskat Stadium and top-class facilities, they still stand as highly attractive club even as they have found themselves outside of the Big Four (Zenit, Arsenal, Koreana and CSKA) back in the UICA days. In order to rebound from the years of mediocrity, the expectations will be high for Colin McQuaid to make proper adjustments. He has time, but for how long...remains to be seen.

Commentary: Colin McQuaid is back in his season with Zenit and the stakes are higher this time. Last year they managed to exceed expectations and finished 9th place, but to repeat such performance would be a bit of stretch to say at this point. The quartet of transfer signings included poaching away Daniel Kasaboski-Wilcox and Dinesh Kapoor from Montreal Impact and Lakeshore, left back Park Yun-Mi from University of Attawapiskat, not to mention a loan of Gustav Rasmussen from Heart of Saguenay.

In what will be the key testing season for Zenit, the key concern of course lies on the defence. Rasmussen and Gunnarsson are both solid centrebacks with good pace, but their focus remains in question. And that's not even the worst part of their back four, as neither Park nor Siirilä are too inconsistent and untimely (Park's 35 and Siirilä 18) to be relied upon on a full season. On a team like Zenit where wingbacks are expected to roam all over the flanks, this is even worse.

At least the team will have enough strengths on the midfields and the forwards to keep the question marks at bay to certain extent. The star acquisition of the Zenit, undersized speedbird Daniel Kasaboski-Wilcox will see a career-high campaign after being underutilised as a CM with Impact. This is possible due to Kim Byeong-Soo and Zinetula Imeretinski preferring to play in more conventional role, with former as a ball-playing midfielder and latter deep-lying playmaker. The latest beneficiaries of this in Petar Mandusic and Bent Kjaer will too bring fresh edge to the offence that has seen 3 retirements and 2 transfers out of the franchise since previous offseason. They are both tall, well-rounded forwards with solid first touches, and the excitement for their breakout's hard to contain among the fans as they came back from the offseason full of progress in training regimen....out in the wilderness!

Prediction: 11th.

5 Most Memorable Anthems of Q-League 2041-42
Leland Guettirez-Ighalo

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA - Being a country known for the internationally infamous supporters' group, the Bubonic Plague, Royal Kingdom of Quebec is known for its ultra culture, but especially their anthems. This comes back to the time when the footballing traditions were much more domestic and regional in nature, meaning that you would hear your fathers and grandfathers singing about it on tavern with their joes and boos.

Today, we would like to introduce 5 of the most memorable anthems from this year's Q-League teams, with fitting explanations added to them.

HALIGONIAN - GONER CECILI-O

'Goner Cecily-O' tells the story of a group of Schottic lads leaving a provincial town named Babylon. Of course, there's no Babylon in Schottia nor Quebec, so there is a likelier sense of biblical allusion given to it. The famous story, which grows into a known urban legend in Halifax, begins when the young craftsman named Eddy calls in love with a young woman named Cecily, and asks her to come with him to Quebec. She declines because of her fear of leaving her home, and he swears vengeance if he ever returns. The song ends in a sad note decade later, with Cecily learning that he died while on board the ship, having found his love in the neighbourhood named Ceciliad. Given the importance of Ceciliad as one of several original Schottic-Quebecois neighbourhoods, this may have been a way to commemorate the Schottic-Quebecois heritage of the Arrondissement-Sud, Halifax.

Starting in 1990s, Halifax emerged as a centre for Quebecois music and film, most notably in actor Sir. Joel-Lynn McCarthy. While the Halifax native was never a singer himself, Sir. Joel's wife, Dame Irene, was a well-known Jazz singer by early-mid 2000s, and also worked on a country-folk band named Cygnus with her twin Diane and bandmates Miguel Cervantes, Simone Nault, Khadjimurat Baev and Joh Jeong-Sook. In 2012, Cygnus, based on a lyrics written by Dame Irene and Diane, released 'Goner Cecili-o' as a tribute to Haligonian football club that both Sir. Joel (who grew up cheering for them) and Diane (a former footballer with nearby St. Mary's College for her collegiate career) were a fan of. It reached a number one and resulted in the Haligonian supporters in the A-Sud singing it for two weeks it was on top of the charts.

Since then, it became a matter of folklore for not just the Hals fans, but also the Schottic-Quebecois people- the most famous example of this song being sung in recent times was on the third week of the season, when Haligonian fans sung the song to welcome back Leonardo Conavacio on their home opener. The game, a 5-1 win over PLI Islanders, was particularly memorable because of his symbol as a history of Quebecois footballers in Schottia (both through marriage and his short but memorable run with Port Sebastian), but it was the first home game for the college signing Lyall Murphy, a Schottian who spent a four-year career with Northwestern University.

HEART OF SAGUENAY - ENSEMBLE, ON REVE D'ETOILES

Since we're talking about clubs built by immigrants, it makes sense to take the northbound train and pop into Stade de Saguenay, the home to Chicoutimi-based Heart of Saguenay. The Hearts' ultra isn't as notorious as that of the Hibs, and their anthem certainly doesn't have a tragic backstory comparable to that of Schottian immigration to Quebec. Still, they do have a particularly captivating song that reminds us to stay positive in the times of darkness. A classic reggae song by Valladar-Quebecois reggae artist Chico Vieira, 'Ensemble, On Reve d'Etoiles' placed number 2 in 1975, in the middle of economic downturn and the air of instability.

Upon immediate release, the Hearts fans found particular appeal to the song and made it their own, first singing it on that year's Boxing Day match against Moncton Schooners. The popular theory behind the song's adoption was that it talked of overcoming the sense of communal discord that was fuelled by gang violence and unemployment prevalent in Chicoutimi at the time. The other theory was that Vieira, a Hearts fan who grew up in the city, and secretly went to watch the game in one of the boxes, so the club played the song to acknowledge his presence without risking the life of one of their most famous supporters in club history. Since then, the song is sung in every home match, filled with marijuana smell and 50 tons of Maroon hand flares.

IQALUIT RED ARMY - CANNON CANNON FIRE

When it comes to kicking off their matchday experience, ignoring Haligonian would mean a grave disrespect. I mean, no other club in Quebec can claim that the city's 4 fortresses launch fire from 44 19th-century styled cannons, as the players run into the turf into the Iqaluit Stadium that's already covered with 100 tons of red hand flares. Cannon Cannon Fire has been popular in Quebec since it was released in 1989 which, if you understand the context of the Cold War that stood within Quebecois Commonwealth for much of the second half of 20th century, would make perfect contextual sense. Introduced by then-manager Ivan Semenov-Ittigaltuk, the song is best remembered for marking a critical change that laid ahead for the nation in Marian Lecavalier years. Ironically enough, it was briefly used for the campaign rally song by New Democratic Party in the 2006 Quebecois elections, before the lawsuit coming from the original singer of the song, Michael Shin, forced the Party to withdraw it. Since then, the song has stayed largely independent from partisanship, and is now remembered along with the sea of red and cannons that come with it.

MONTREAL KOREANA - GLORY GLORY KOREANA

Written in the same melody as 'Alma Mater Cliù', the legendary school song of Queen's College, 'Glory Glory Koreana' was first introduced to the Koreana folklore by the rock band Bulkgot (means flames in Korean) on their song 'My Home Montreal', a song dedicated in their homage to the Quebecois metropolis the members all originate from. While already a long popular tune, the song's popularity in football took off with Montreal Koreana. Since first singing the song in 1987, Koreana fans took it on their own to kick off the return of now the winningest club in Quebecois history, and made it more than just a football anthem.

With a critical link to their hated rivals CSKA, the first time the Koreana fans sang the song was on the home leg of the 1987-88 Q-League season. It was said that the Koreana fans, after an epic comeback that led the Montreal side to a 3-3 tie after being down 0-3 at the halftime, turned the song at the 91st minute of the game and started making up their lyrics as they sang to the tune. Since then it was officially adopted by Montreal Koreana, with the Koreana fans waving their flags in the sea of blue and white before the kickoff, during intermission, and after every home win. Of course, with the club's fortunes having turned around under the direction of the late Sir. Kim Ji-Choon, there have been plenty of times to sing the song after the final whistle's blown.

WINNIPEG UNITED - PEGRINO

The newest one on the list is a bit of a bizarre selection, yes. Still, we felt that it deserved a mention because it caught massive popularity among Winnipeg United supporters, whose need of solace in a depressing season led into something quite hilarious.

Officially called 'Vamonos Muchachos' but better described as 'Pegrino', this anthem is played before the first whistle and the start of the first half of every United home game. The origins of the song was a bit simpler than that of 'Glory Glory Koreana'. Famous Caraqueno actress Elaina Mendez and local rapper Senor Mondial came up with the original composition as the second song to their latest single 'Hometown Babe'.

Of course, things worked out the other way. While 'Hometown Homie' placed 5th at the Quebecois Charts, ever-so-savvy United supporters were immediately hooked to what was supposed to be a secondary addition to the single album. The song placed on top of the Quebecois charts, staying at it for six full weeks. Unfortunately, the 2-2 tie against CSKA Quebec on the first match of the season, brought by the chant, has yet to improve much of the club's fortune on this early season...

Sir. Jayson Dhanda, forever a fighter, passes into eternity
Nicolas Milliken-Milner

QUEBEC CITY, CAPITALE-NATIONALE - The statement issued by his family confirmed that Sir. Jayson Dhanda died peacefully at his home in Quebec City with his wife and family beside him.

Within hours, the rows of floral and photographic tributes have already been laid at the Quebecois national football team's home ground, the Reneegrad. The RQFA previously confirmed that the fans will be able to leave their tributes for the next week.

The statement also confirmed that the private funeral would be held, while a celebration of life ceremony will happen in June, upon Mr. Dhanda's wish not to leave further conflict with Q-League schedule than already expected.

The federal province of Capitale-Nationale held a minute of silence at 11:30 a.m., following the announcement made at the Royal Palace under His Majesty, Jacques IX of Quebec. This was followed by the flags being flown at half mast at the Reneegrad, CSKA Stadium, and the Royal Quebecois Football Association's Headquarters at 1876 Abbotsford Boulevard.

A Book of Remembrance has also been opened at the Hall of Remembrance at The Reneegrad, which will be available for the week as well. One minute of silence will also be held at all Quebecois football matches over the course of this weekend.

Most members of the Quebecois national football team and the RQFF staff, dating back to Dhanda's time with Quebecois national team, are expected to be arriving in Quebec City later this evening, and are expected to be presented at the funeral. This includes Q-League managers Leonardo Conavacio, Jannick Kontiola, and Devane Miller, who will be taking a federation-mandated leave of absence from their duty with Haligonian, Montreal Koreana and Olympique de Rimouski.

Born in Utica, Osarius, Sir. Jayson grew up in the Utica United's academy before embarking on a thirteen-year long career with the United. He was also a longtime member of the Osarian national team, also captaining the international power on occasion.

After his celebrated career as footballer, Dhanda's club managerial career continued for many decades. He initially began as a player-manager at Charleston Athletic (now Ajamilu FC), before he moved to national academy and then the developmental manager with the Osarian national football team.

After a couple of years with the Osarian national team program, he was appointed as the manager of the Quebecois national football team, shortly after the retirement of legendary Sir. Kim Ji-Choon following the World Cup 69. Taking over the Grim Reapers side that was renowned for its offensive prowess but lacked consistency, he continued the national team's evolution during his 8 years with 2 quarterfinal finishes (WC73 and WC74) and a round of 16 finish (WC71). His time was remembered in particular for the development and maturation of world-class talent that was coming into age at the end of his predecessor's time, not to mention that of his own too.

After his time in Quebec City, his managerial career continued in Valladares, where he led the Valladar national team to a runner-up finish in World Cup 74 during his 8 year reign, before his dismissal following the WCQ79. Because of this, he is remembered very fondly in both nations, with his managerial reigns both resulting in glories back in his days.

Dhanda had fought a long battle against cancer, being diagnosed six years ago in 2036. He beat the initial stomach cancer and continued to fight well against diabetes (which he was diagnosed with in 2032), before being diagnosed with lung cancer two years ago.

Sir. Jayson married his wife Alexandra, a high school sweetheart of his, in 1991. He is survived by Alexandra, their daughters Eloise and Bernice, and 5 grandchildren. His grandson, Sergueï Chtchedrine-Dhanda, is an up-and-coming prospect.

Royal Quebecois Football Federation issued a statement that they are 'deeply saddened' by the loss the Quebecois footballing community has suffered.

Fatima Naser, the Operations Director of the RQFF, said: 'Sir Jayson was the true legend of the international football, whose contribution to international football in both Quebec and Valladares were highly valuable. He will be dearly missed by all of us in the sporting world and the Quebecois nation.'

The likewise sentiment was repeated by Asociacion del Futbol de Valladares and Osarian Football Association. Earlier this morning, the AFV released their press statement on the manager's passing: 'The Asociación Valladar de Fútbol wishes to express its sincerest condolences at the departure of former NT manager Jayson Dhanda. He will always be remembered for his hard and dedicated work while coaching La Nacional and by having played a big part in the most recent successes of the Valladar national team, turning it into one 'of the most competitive teams of the multiverse at the time. The thoughts of everyone at the VFA are with his family at this sad moment.

Former national team captain and Marinos Metropolis club legend Zachary Fortin also paid tribute to Sir Jayson. He said: 'Today is a sad day for everyone, especially his family, friends and all those who had the privilege to work with the great man.

'The old sir was an honourable man. He knew how to work with those around him, and always stayed honourable and respectful. In the years when he was part of the Quebecois National Team, he did his best to understand all of us coming from different parts of the nation and the world, and made sure to put us together as a team. The likewise, of course, was repeated with his staff and those who were working for the federation.

'For what he did in football and the community, he was always held with great respect across the World, and this was particularly felt so in Osarius, Quebec and Valladares.

'He was a true fighter, and battled until the last. We will dearly miss him.'

Somewhere in Halifax, two weeks later...

'So, what's next?' Derek Hanson Jr. asked his father, Leonardo, as they were on their way back home on Leonardo's car. Lots of pressure were taken off since the previous weekend: first Coupe du Roi since 2016, a solid fourth place finish, and now all's clear for about a month before things would get hectic again with offseason planning. For once, Leo's the one driving their son home.

First full season as a professional manager had meant lots of weight to Conavacio and his household of 4, and of course Leo knew that it was not a normal job. I mean, the Conavacios continued to come back to Quebec on regular frequency after Leo's move to Equestrian States, and they would spend about a month with the quartet's grandparents in St. John's. But a permanent return to Quebec, to manage a team famous for its Schottian-Quebecois heritage and Leo's predecessor Norman Hacker, was still something. Having grown up in Manechester, where his father was the flashy second-in-command to the infamous Val Kylx, Derek could feel in the air all the nerves and excitement that coexisted in the streets of Halifax.

'Not sure,' Leo answered with uncertainty, slowly moving his shoulders around as he tried to think of what's next. 'Maybe we can think a bit about it when we get back home.' Derek wondered if his father was just tired, or annoyed with the volume of work ahead. Haligonian finished fourth and won the Cup, but quite unconvincingly so and nobody was happy about it. This, in combination with his brother Enrico coming back to likely discuss his next career in about a week's time, left both the father and his youngest son pretending to have forgotten about what's next. Still, Derek Jr knew very well about how his father was not really in a good state of health. Even when during his decade-long prime, Leonardo was infamous for not really taking care of his health. Derek Jr. knew from early age that cigarette smoking is bad, but also understood that he couldn't really quit. He never witnessed it in person, but had known the smell all along his life was quite worried at the rate of cigarette smoking his parents indulged upon.

'Why don't we see visit nono and nona?' Derek Jr. asked, looking outside the car window. He knew his father always felt guilty for not being able to visit his elderly parents enough, especially as his coach-managerial duties ramped up with Manechester and Haligonian. He knew that they just drove past a couple of hills and were getting closer to their home on the Eastern end of Halifax. This also meant that Leonardo Conavacio, as always, would start speeding around this point. 'Maybe we should just go there for a week, and visit auntie Hazel and uncle Eugene (McNair).'

The mention of van Robben, his ex-girlfriend and longtime teammate, had Leo squint his eyes for a second. Everybody had known about their relationship, and the fact that it was several years before Leo met Claire at Alianza FC didn't change the topic from being tabooed for most part. Still, Leonardo had to calm down and pretend nothing's wrong with the suggestion. 'Sounds like a good idea, Derek. Been a while since we last seen them, eh?' Leo nodded as the car accelerated on a flat road. Woops, Derek thought as he adjusted his glasses, knowing that his father was an awful driver. They say the habits don't die so quickly after all, and Leonardo is a creature of them. 'At least we can bring something palpable to them this time. Someday, you'll make grandpa and grandma proud too.'

'But I won't be the ones bringing the cups home...' he sighed, checking his cell phone. 'And I'm the only one not so athletic enough-'

'Don't say that again, Derek Hanson-Conavacio,' Leo warned, 'You know mummy and daddy loves all four of you equally.'

'It's true..'

'What's true?'

'That I'm the only one not out there...' came up from Derek's mouth. It was something that has been on his mind for some time. Truth be told, he felt slightly odd and out of fit since coming back to Quebec. After growing up in Equestrian States, where his father was 'that foreigner' but could get away with camouflages, since he was one, coming back as the national hero's son was quite overwhelming for him. Unlike his sibligngs, he seldom saw playing time on the middle school team (note: Halifax Grammar is a K-12 private school famous for its scouting of kids from all over the eastern half of Acadie province), and the pressure of being the brother of breakout star Enrico and wunderkind Hazel left him thinking a lot about why he had to be the physically ungifted one in the family.

To make it worse, it's not as if Derek Jr. didn't know about it either. If anything, he was highly cognisant of it all. Being one half Hanson and other half Conavacio, he knew a lot about the games the others did not even think of at his young age, and had his father's speaking skills to talk about strategies for hours and hours. But not being able to translate them at the pitch...that was certainly something that he was frustrated about. Besides, what can being the smartest kid in his form really give to him? It's not like he shared the bad boy element of earlier Conavacio; he's much more in line with the Conavacio of Porty days who was happy just to become a happy husband and a dad. I mean, Handon United fans will say otherwise, but that's not really the point here, dear reader. The guy's just as frustrated about that as the sixth grader boy's crush on an eighth grader girl.

'Yes, but you're the only Conavacio to have won a dux in grade 7...and we can surely find time to travel to Reneegrad!' Leonardo exclaimed in glee, raising his left hand outside the window in an effort to improve the mood of the topic. The same talk happening over and over again, about Derek Jr.'s inability to play sports at high level, was something that the father of four wasn't happy about, and hearing it on the way back from Halifax Grammar, where Derek Jr was the smartest kid in the form, was frustrating too. He knew from his struggles as a dyslexic schoolboy in St. John's that expecting everybody to be smart or athletic was rather ludicrous, and knew very well that being good at one thing and have others help him to learn over time would be a better idea. 'Who knows? You might work there like your mummy in Handon, and get to fly around the world too. you got your mother's brains, and we're all thankful that we at least have one genius in the family!''

'Thanks dad. That makes me wonder: I do wonder if the physios in Reneegrad will give us 'roids when we visit the facilities,' He said. 'Jimmy Huntley said to me over lunch that 'your papa must be on roids and grams of viga-agra back in the day', and I wonder if he's right..'

Well, as you can see here, Kids don't always translate jokes well. In this case, his best friend probably alluded to something more sexual about Derek's parents, but was lost in translation....and the kid didn't get it.

'No, no, no, we're not gonna talk like that today, young mister,' he said, giving his son a thumbs up, before moving it back to the steering wheel. 'Mummy won't like it.' Chuckling on the inside, Leo knew that he was certainly a lucky guy. For every impulsive Claire, as he always says on family breakfast (whenever Enrico and Hazel come back from abroad), there's a passionate Leo. And for every arrogant Enrico, there's a humble Hazel. And finally, for every beast-like Matteo, there's an ingenious Derek Jr, and he loved how he was blessed to be living in such a household. He just wished that Derek Jr. would learn to appreciate humour and mistranslation with ease.

2043-44 Q-League standings

CHAMPIONS
HALIGONIAN (12th Title)


Hail, Conavacio. Hail.

When Leonardo Conavacio, still smelling a bit of champagne off the locker room after their Coupe du Roi victory, announced that Haligonian were going to 'make it all the way, and aim for that domestic double', many raised their eyebrows. Even with a big signing of Marcus Swyripa from Kingston FC, as well as collegiate signing of Elisabeth Cha from Mount Ester University, they stayed well out of making major splash signings that their opponents made, and that kept them well outta consideration. Still, most media pundits who knew Conavacio and the depth Haligonian club has argued that, as they aimed to continue their success from the previous season. Besides, Haligonian's positive finish to last season on a year we had all expect as a major transition year also meant greater excitement, and the nation's fans were wondering if this could be the year.

And they were absolutely right. Of course, this Haligonian side's still not the one that has all the firepower on the arsenal, nor does it have a clear cut answer up the back. Frankly, the closest thing they had all season as in a superstar would be a Siovanijan loanee Denis Dezelac, second-year professional Lyall Murphy and of course, team's mercurial centre midfieldr Seamus McKellar. Yet somehow they did it. Everybody performed as expected from their manager, and the team, brought together by McKellar, Leah McKechnie, Marcus Swyripa, and of course, the core of the Grim Reapers' midfield in Winter season transfer, Anton Vujadinovic (as for how he ended up here, see right below). Now, combine that with a phenomenal campaign by Dezelac, who shone especially in the second half in the first of two-year loan stretch, it all made sense in the end.

Haligonian's Success was marked by a particular contrast in form for Montreal Koreana, who made what was the signing of the offseason when they secured the services of Kelssekian international Louis Kuelvic from Birdingstone United of Ethane. With that signing as cherry on top, it was only rational and reasonable to expect Koreana to win the third straight Q-League title with ease. Besides, who wouldn't belive in the frontline of Kuelvic, Park and of course the national team master scorer Michel Fillion, as well as the presence of Grim Reapers' captain Anton Vujadinovic up middle and elite libero Lucien Raeff? With that much starpower, it was fairly safe to assume that the team was ready to win it all.

Unfortunately for millions of Koreana fans out there, that's not exactly how it turned out. Sure, they did have a phenomenal first half of the season, which seemed too uncharacteristic of the Jannick Kontiola-led team that had all the confidence in the world for sure. But their nine point lead, well ahead of Haligonian, CSKA and Inverness all proved to be no more than a catchable lead. The major scandal involving Michel Fillion and Anton Vujadinovic, which occurred over former sleeping with the latter's wife, forced the Montreal club's hand to sell Fillion to New Laketown Rangers and Vujadinvoc to none other than Haligonian. Then they hit a particular run of form that not even the strengths of the club, nor the patience of Jannick Kontiola, could have saved. Ultimately, the epic reversal of their fate from two years ago was what caused Koreana to finish second in what could have been their greatest season. Now, with two of their finest stars gone, Kontiola and the front office will probably have to make splash signings during the offseason to boost the team that needs all kinds of glitter and gold to be back and frankly, not make fool of themselves again.

While Haligonian's championship story was the one to watch this season, we cannot ignore Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 either. UI1877, who spent little but did sign a solid gamble as in Cee Lo Casey from St. John's Arsenal, finally had a good year where they overcame great expectations by the rich and the poor of the islanders on the northeastern tip of Acadie Province. With Ha-Whelan duo up front, Sinead MacDougall having a top XI-worthy season and of course, the defence doing unremarkable but stout job as expected from the quartet. Of course, the club is happy about the results and they are right in believing that they can challenge Koreana or Haligonian, but whether they will dethrone them down the road, will most likely depend upon whether they can find the successor to Glenn McInnis as their starting goalkeeper.


As expected from the season marked with close margins and competitive finishes, here were a couple of pleasant surprises found. Heart of Saguenay is one of them, having overcome all sorts of challenges to finish third by the half-way point and fifth by the time the final whistle rang at Apple Bowl on a 2-1 victory over Zenit Attawapiskat. The Hearts didn't get a ton of improvements, but where they improved were where they lacked the previous season. 21-year old rookie Benoit Djaozandry, a collegiate signing from Hanyang College, looked no less than stellar as the joker card for the team that's often criticised for having somewhat predictable offence, while Guillermo Lavezzi had a memorable campaign where the Vaughan-York Azzurri star worked well with Evander Bush-Sprenger. As with Seamus MacDougall from UI1877, this was also another breakout season for the Hearts captain, as the midfielder stepped up a notch in his offensive contribution to help Bousquet-Cyr, Aronsson and of course Djaozandry. And while their defence is still questionable, shown by the level of weariness they had shown with injuries and breakdowns, their goalkeeper tandem of Herménégilde Trézéguet and Nina Kawahara proved to be exactly what the doctor asked for, to place them on a very good finish to the season.

The likewise can be said towards CSKA Quebec. The Quebec City team, led by their new manager Ross Killanen, has stepped up nicely even with the loss of their two best players in Marco Hertel and Nelson Okello. Donovan Kim-Lumaniyka, their starting right back, has already made a very high-profile impact on the team and is likely to be considered on the national team for a solid decade and half, while Donnacona international Greyson Grégoire has done an adequate replacement of the mercurial degenerate who left for Valladar club Servette. While Caraqueno international Omar Vargas Fernandez struggled a bit here and there, and the defensive backfield with Kim, Nappaaluk, Milne-Chamberlain wishes they could have done better...it's still a good season for the Quebec City squad.

Aside from that, there were three more teams to mention, albeit with lesser detail. Those were Zenit Attawapiskat, whose 17-year old goalkeeper Sandra Middleton survived neverending barrage of shots widely described as a wartime blitz, and the human driller of a goalscorer in Savojar Kaapo Terkala of Northandryun Rovers. Swanguard Athletic, at the same time, filled their gap with retirement of Pierre-Luc Sarrazin and transfer of Nadia Kinley to Kingston FC with wise signing of Teus ace-striker Erik Moselle, whose potential at age 20 remains fairly high, and underrated defensive pickups in Savojar rookie Milla Viipuri and Apoxian veteran Rudolph Orient. While it remains to be seen on how they will do in future, especially with Eileen Green coming to a slow but gradual drop-off in form for next while, the future for Swanguard should be bright if they keep this up.

2044-45 Q-League Previews


The Favourites

1. Haligonian
2. Montreal Koreana
3. CSKA Quebec

If you have noticed Q-League the past two seasons, there’s a clear top three on paper- CSKA, Haligonian and Koreana (sorry to UI1877 fans)- and we all know that. Of course, football fans are going to be heavily divided on who will win the League this year, and with all three teams loading up nicely, this is as close to a prediction we can get.

Among the three, my prediction certainly goes to Haligonian, as the expectations for them are minimum a domestic title or a Coupe du Roi. There are many reasons to pick them to win the back-to-back Q-League title, but one of them has to be ‘the arrival’- the arrival of Hazel Hanson-Conavacio. To some, she is the blue-blooded daughter of team manager Leonardo Conavacio, who has only done wonders with the team since his arrival two years ago. But really, she is much more than that. The only Quebecois professional footballer who plays two sports on professional level, she is the youngest starter on the current edition of both Quebecois basketball and football national teams, and to make it better a franchise player for next twenty years.

But that’s not the only good news for the Southeastern powerhouse who wants to make to make it deep. This is a team that is led by an eccentric manager familiar with all forms of confusionism, who lost little money acquiring Schottian talisman John Hare and Siovanijan ballhandler Gregory Scherwey after Leah McKechnie went to Koreana, and also happens to have Siovanijan loanee Denis Dezelac back for another monster season. Not to mention having Anton Vujadinovic and Seamus McKellar at the very centre of it all. If they can overcome some of the losses they had with McKechnie transfer and Marcus Swyripa heading to Zenit Attawapiskat and whatnot, they should have little trouble winning it again.

Of course, it would be disrespectful to leave Montreal Koreana out of conversation, just because Haligonian’s getting all the spotlight. That’s perhaps what Jannick Kontiola, a longtime Grim Reapers legend and the third year manager, wants after all, as they quietly acquired the services of Valladar international Alexandre and Chromatik ironman Giles Ken, as well as aforementioned Leah McKechnie as the second leg of the Anton Vujadinovic transfer the previous winter window. With Koreana not being afraid to spend, especially as their next big prospect core matures in the academy side right now, they are likely going all-in for it. But can the winningest team in Quebecois football do it with squeaky clean Kontiola, especially after all the fiasco that happened over Fillion and Vujadinovic? That’s something we’ll find out over time.

Not far behind, though title-less in 9 years now, is CSKA Quebec. The Cheoyongs, the second-winningest club in Quebec City, the team of those north of the Fleuve- they are probably the most fabled Quebecois club (sorry to the guys right above), however you put it forth, and half the sports journalists in my neighbourhood wants them to win their fourth title (which would be their first without Sir. Lionel Mah!) since 1990. Still, I see them in third place, as Ross Killanen likely heads this squad to a comfortable Challengers Cup berth finish.

But why? It’s straightforward- the inconsistency in depth. CSKA may be at its strongest up in the middle- where they possess Tessa ‘the Schottian machine’ Maitfield, Donnaconan enigma Greyson Gregoire, and they have excellent fullbacks to compliment that. But the squad was unable to solve their question mark on goalscoring, and having a mostly-quiet transfer window isn’t helpful either. It is likely that they are taking a year off, in exchange for a major splash next summer.

The Possibles

4. Unama'kik-Inverness 1877
5. Heart of Saguenay
6. Zenit Attawapiskat
7. Olympique de Rimouski

Now we have another strong batch, known as the ‘possibles’. This group of teams, while not exactly likely to win the league in long run over others, is a strong upset candidate for those right above and intimidating opposition for the rest of the league.

In my prediction, UI1877 is the one to take the fourth place and the final IFCF spot for all that’s concerned. Last year, they had a particularly challenging year where they had relied a particularly large share on Kate Huitema-Omeasoo, who had a 23-goal season that facilitated a blockbuster transfer to Istria City FC of Banija. In her place is a 15-year old Vdaran phenom, Mathaios Makrotsis, and speedy Delaclav talisman in Artem Kohut, whom are expected to not only make up for their loss but to hopefully better the talies from a particularly goal-challenged year.

Also gone is their longtime manager of 31 years, Benoit-Clement Boyd-Allen, who retired this offseason to battle cancer. Replacing Boyd-Allen is Clement Byeon, a longtime assistant manager who knows the club well. While he’s 46 and long familiar with the league on his own, it remains to be seen whether he can get them over the hump. Can he smoothen the impact for this team whose window may have closed a bit more than this time last year?

For the fifth and sixth spots we have Heart of Saguenay and Zenit Attawapiskat, as the two historical powerhouses aim to stay relevant in different manners. Heart of Saguenay, for one, is trying to move up, as they overcame a great deal of competition to land 21 year old Cree Martel, whose speed and talent excites local fans, on top of a commitment to stay by team captain Evander Bush-Sprenger. It's a good commitment to have, especially with the Quebecois midfielder looking to leave if they fail to net an IFCF spot this time around. The likewise, in the meanwhile, is what Zenit Attawapiskathopes to achieve as they landed Raimundo Puga from Ko-orenite side Branvon CD and Marcus Swyripa from Haligonian. Both players, while not otherworldly, should combine nicely with the team that needs stability and assurance more than unpredictability, as they do millions of tweaks around the meme that’s Zenit defence.

As for seventh, Olympique de Rimouski joins the final spot of the ‘possibles’ batch. While known for being a small spender on transfer front, they nonetheless had just enough cash and patience to net a major defensive signing in Saunlilun Buthoningun of Ko-oren. It’s a solid squad with many green leaves and quite a few holes here and there, but enough veteran presence and coaching to make up for. With Ray Ashoona and Ilya Smolkine up middle, and Min Dong-Jin scoring in bunches up forward, they should be fine for now.

The Blob

8. Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa
9. Swanguard Athletic
10. Northandryun Rovers
11. Kingston FC
12. Iqaluit Red Army
13. St. John’s Arsenal
14. Hamilton Steelers

Yeah, the good ole mediocrity zone. These guys are neither great….nor horrible, and fans remain unsure on whether to really be excited or disappointed about them.

They all hold distinctive playing styles, have positive sides to their play, and could certainly hold their grounds well, though what bogs them down is that almost all of them have their glaring weaknesses that limits their capability moving forward. We are all familiar with Sherbrooke’s final stretch struggles. Swanguard is still an excellent club, but their retooling and transitioning phases have gone for such a long time that something drastic better be done. St. John’s Arsenal losing their top two guns in Hazel van Robben (happy retirement!) and Mohamed Khedira to retirement and move abroad was a huge blow for all those up in Newfoundland, while Hamilton and Iqaluit are in the same spot as they had been for a solid decade now.

All, in all, a depressing bunch. The only team with more positives than negatives (Swanguard’s half-half) there is Northandryun Rovers, who expects to ride heavily upon Kaapo Terkala and Deidre Morgan up front while their new stadium is getting built. It’s a promising team with a new owner, so perhaps betting on them might not be bad for this year anyway.

Those Fighting for Their Lives

15. Winnipeg United
16. Perce Town
17. PLI Islanders
18. Montreal Impact
19. Club Racing Sept-Iles
20. Hochelaga

Unfortunately for those here, it’s safe to say that we cannot expect too much out of them. It’s straightforward- either it’s not their time to shine yet, or they are just not good enough. Fortunately for these guys though, only two clubs are going to be relegated this season, with the eighteenth-place team entering the promotion-relegation playoffs.

I won’t say too much about this batch here, though Perce Town is an interesting one to watch among this group, as the level of expectations for the Gaspesie side continues to drop from their heydays about a half-decade ago. Like what you’d expect from a small town side, Perce runs on cycles and right now is of course, the low-point of it. The team needs cash to develop and reload, and Kim Seung-Yoon’s transfer to RGS Athletic, just happened to be the sign that we should not expect too much from them. They did land Nikolai Brown of Xanneria in defence though, and a triplet of academy products they had signed last April looked promising, so who knows? We may see them back up sooner than later.

Another one to take note, in the meanwhile, is the fate of two other Montreal teams. Despite being on the largest market, Greater Montreal have done fairly poorly in representation outside of Impact and Koreana. This is partly because of how dominant Koreana have been since the 1990s, and we all know of Sir. Kim Ji-Choon’s 25 year reign back in the day, but just as much responsibility goes towards how Impact, Hochelaga and City have all….become shadows of themselves about a half century ago.

Fortunately we have seen somewhat of improvement this time around, as we see three teams on the top tier for the first time in the decade, a rarity since City had fallen into irrelevance in League One. Unfortunately, they too had lost enough while trying to stay alive, and it looks quite likely that only Koreana will survive by this time next year.

Not much surprise here so far, as we enter the first stretch of the season.

As you can see, there are three teams with almost-imperfect record, and they aren’t….the same three we had expected. After drawing on the first day. Koreana and Haligonian took a slightly different pattern to an excellent start, with Koreana heating up after a sluggish start and Haligonian heating up with a seven-game winning streak before losing their last two.

But the true draw to the show had been Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa’s latest star, Eloise Kweon, and the Zenit Attawapiskat side. The 20-year old, who was pushed into the primary target following Hamidou Diressa’s move to Molsbrik Arkjet of Semarland, did not disappoint in her new role as she started the season with 11 goals to lead the Q-League in goal scoring. Zenit, in the meanwhile, had managed not to defensively collapse for once, as they finished fourth in what’s otherwise a heavily clogged battleground between the fourth-place Zenit and fourteenth-place Arsenal. While there’s much remaining to be seen, the team shows enough promise at this point and should be a bookie’s favourite, as long as they continue their solid form that had led into a 2-2 draw against Koreana at home.

In the meanwhile, there are some notable disappointments, as Olympique and UI1877 find themselves on the bottom half of the standings.

The Olympique, who had expected improvements from the team that had won the Coupe du Roi and placed sixth on the league, fell into a series of injury bugs as they found themselves on a mediocre 4-1-5 mark and 13 points. Of course, there's a bit more to it than what the goal differential would tell you, especially as they had lost 6-7 to Sherbrooke on the opening day, but their lack of defensive steel besides the Ko-orenite….was evident enough either way. The UI1877, in the meanwhile, had a different set of problems, as their failure to seize winnable matches continued. At least they had better excuses than Olympique or Kingston though, as replacing Boyd-Allen was going to be a challenging task, no matter how you put it. That’s exactly why Clement Byeon, even with a horrible start, isn’t under a hot seat- the organisation knows the pain and the burden.

Joey's Corner - AYE OR NAY? Time to look back on preseason predictions

Joey Grametbauer-Gong

ATTAWAPISKAT, NORTHWEST - Hello, everybody! Joey's here, as we take a look back at my preseason predictions. Of course, those were made for fun without particular betting-related repercussions, so why don't we take a look and see what have happened since last time? Hopefully I didn't get too many things wrong....

Zenit Attawapiskat will surprise everybody -Not a lot of people believed the pundits when they said Zenit could be a challenger this season. In basic logic, that makes sense- we’ve all become accustomed to how the Rocketeers have disappointed the city of Attawapiskat over the past twenty years! They weren’t supposed to be excited, even as the Zenit landed three major signings in the transfer window!

Half a year later, the Zenit fans could finally draw a collective sigh of relief, as they woke up this morning to see themselves in second-place, with a comfortable, 5 point lead over Haligonian and Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa, and a strong 15 goal differential to convince themselves. And while it remains to be seen on whether their quartet of Sandra Middleton, Keghart Nazaretian, Raimundo Puga and Marcus Swyripa can hold on, their current form should convince me enough to say, yes they can.

Will Swanguard’s Struggles Continue? - One of the biggest questions heading into this offseason was whether Swanguard Athletic, who have been undergoing a major retooling phase for a while, will either be back on top or suffer a critical drop to the bottom-feeders.

So far, it seems like they are heading down that way, as Prince Eric, Mtb.-based side found themselves frustrated on what has been a nightmarish 10-game stretch for them. 1-4-5 isn’t really what they had expected nor wanted by the team that still remembered domestic glories less than a decade ago, but this isn’t pretty. With that, part of the blame lies upon 62-year old Marianne Godbut-Sweeney, whose age is starting to show with enough questionable decisions made for the past year and half, but just as much can be alluded to the organisation, who have failed to prepare for much more aggressive measures. While it is unlikely Godbut-Sweeney would be let go midway, Swanguard may want to consider a managerial and even organisational switch if their form continues to be Jabroni-bad.

Montreal will be having only one team in the region for next cycle - MAYBE. Right now it’s not a good time to be a Hochelaga or Impact fan, as both sides were left with little to cheer for in what’s been a dreadful season. There’s no other way to describe it, really.

That said, we may have to wait it out, especially as the outcome will depend upon whether AS Blainville, currently placing in the Quebecois Championship, can make it to the top tier for the first time in thirty-four years. AS does have a solid team with a couple of big-time prospects that many Q-League sides salivate themselves over, but the Championship is a much longer race than the Q-League. That said, if they can keep up and possibly secure one of the automatic qualifying spots, the nation’s largest metropolitan region will still end up with two sides, something that the RQFA, somewhere lurking in their Reneegrad headquarters, would hope for.

2045-46 Q-League : First Half


The Royal Quebecois Football Association welcomes everybody to the 2045-46 season of the Quebecois football league, marking this year the 148th year of the Quebecois domestic football. The most recent season has seen Montreal Koreana winning their third Q-League title in four seasons, while a pair of historic clubs in Nunavut North Stars and Levis Athletic have made their return to the top tier. With this year being the 100th straight year of the fully uninterrupted operations of the Q-League since the Quebecois and allied forces' victory at Southern Rushmori War of 1939-1945, this season is carried with a special meaning by the poppy incorporated into the league crest on the players' jersey for the season. With much more parity, as well as the strengthening of the teams in the middle of the tier, this season is expected to be even more exciting than even. Will Koreana be able to create even more distance between them and the rest of the upper tier of the league? Will CSKA Quebec, on their manager's final season as a professional football manager, be able to win their first title in 1990 without Sir. Lionel Mah (who has given them 3 titles and two Coupe du Rois during his two stints there)? Or will it be somebody else claiming for the glory? Will Northandryun Rovers and Kingston FC, widely regarded as the underrated wildroses of the provintsiia, make critical gains this time around? Will Zenit Attawapiskat, without Sandra Middleton but with many gains made on the personnel side of things, be able to continue their ascent?

Now, with that being said, let's find out.

MATCHDAY 1

CSKA Quebec 5-2 Hamilton Steelers
Haligonian 1-0 Trojana Condommakers FC
Montreal Koreana 3-4 Swanguard Athletic
Unama'kik-Inverness 1877
4-1 Nunavut North Stars
Zenit Attawapiskat 1-4 Perce Town
Olympique de Rimouski
2-1 Iqaluit Red Army
St. John's Arsenal 2-0 Club Racing Sept-Iles
Northandryun Rovers 2-3 Levis Athletic
Kingston FC
1-0 Winnipeg United
Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa 1-2 Heart of Saguenay

And off we go, as the excitement abides for the 149th season of the highest tier of Quebecois football. The fans across the Northwestern AO and around the multiverse shouted and roared on either their stands or living rooms, as the first weekend kicked off. The first clash of the day was between CSKA Quebec and Hamilton Steelers, where the capital city side, looking to win their first title post-1990 without Sir. Lionel Mah as the manager, prevailed 5-2 on a two goal performance by Tiog international Oikilde Fusul.

The defending champions, Montreal Koreana, in the meanwhile were upset with an unexpected thriller of a loss against Swanguard Athletic, who would be only so happy to come off a tough run to The Samseongoloondongjang with a win. So far it's been a fairly disappointing two-month stretch for the Koreana fans, whom were not only knocked off early on international football, but also is having a rough start under their new manager.

Elsewhere, Heart of Saguenay pulled a solid win against the Green Warriors from Sherbrooke with a goal by Cree Martel on the 71st minute, while Haligonian witnessed a flash of brilliance from the game-winning goal on the 87th minute by Augustin Vladimirescu, their marquee signing from Twicetagrien. All in all, lots of exciting news on the first half of the season with plenty of upsets and eye-opener, but otherwise not much to be said for.

MATCHDAY 2

Trojana Condommakers FC 1-0 CSKA Quebec
Swanguard Athletic 10-3 Hamilton Steelers
Nunavut North Stars 1-0 Haligonian
Perce Town 0-2 Montreal Koreana
Iqaluit Red Army
2-0 Unama'kik-Inverness 1877
Club Racing Sept-Iles 4-0 Zenit Attawapiskat
Levis Athletic 0-2 Olympique de Rimouski
Winnipeg United
2-1 St. John's Arsenal
Heart of Saguenay 1-3 Northandryun Rovers
Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa
1-0 Kingston FC

Week two of the Q-League picks off where we left off last week, as the Swanguard Athletic's 10-3 drubbing of Hamilton Steelers in what was the match of the relegation-zone challengers. The game, fought in the middle of fog in VisitMB.que Arena (Capacity: 29,563), was a tricky one in which no less than four players were yellow carded, as the fans booed the quality of poor play and repeated slips by both home and away teams. Elsewhere, the games were much more conventional, though no less trippy on the essence, as Montreal Koreana rebounded from a poor home loss with a 17th minute goal off volley by Alexandre, but also a clean sheet for Dejan Wasic, their new starting goalkeeper picked up from the relegated Impact. Trojana Condommakers FC, coming back to the league after a year away on the Championship, also made their mark quickly, as they upset the CSKA side whose teething issues up front have been more than noticeable.

MATCHDAY 3

CSKA Quebec 0-0 Swanguard Athletic
Trojana Condommakers FC 0-0 Nunavut North Stars
Hamilton Steelers 3-3 Perce Town
Haligonian 1-1 Iqaluit Red Army
Montreal Koreana 5-4 Club Racing Sept-Iles
Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 4-0 Levis Athletic
Zenit Attawapiskat 0-0 Winnipeg United
Olympique de Rimouski 6-0 Heart of Saguenay
St. John's Arsenal 2-1 Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa
Northandryun Rovers 1-0 Kingston FC

This week, the third week featured the first Saguenay Derby of the year, in which Olympique de Rimouski had pulled their third straight win by beating Heart of Saguenay at the Steelyard with a four-goal performance by Min Dong-Jin. The 4-goal performance, while highly memorable on its own record, will also be a tough one for the Olympique to swallow as Min had to be taken out of the field due to a hamstring injury that should affect the high-flying side to extent. Meanwhile, the flares flew and the fans clashed on the south stand of Alannis Varela Stadium (Capacity: 48,574), as the Zenit-United match had finished with a nil-nil run in the end. This is then coincided by exciting 5-4 victory for Montreal Koreana over CR Sept-Iles, as the neverending tug of war saw Leah McKechnie and Ethel Jarvis red-carded on the 81st minute scuffle. Of course, it does translate to the tenacity of the Quebecois footballers, in that they are expected to fight for the ball, and the occasional unpredictability of the league where even Koreana cannot expect to win so easily.

MATCHDAY 4

Nunavut North Stars 1-2 CSKA Quebec
Perce Town
2-1 Swanguard Athletic
Iqaluit Red Army 0-1 Trojana Condommakers FC
Club Racing Sept-Iles
6-4 Hamilton Steelers
Levis Athletic 1-1 Haligonian
Winnipeg United 1-4 Montreal Koreana
Heart of Saguenay 2-3 Unama'kik-Inverness 1877
Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa 0-3 Zenit Attawapiskat
Kingston FC 0-2 Olympique de Rimouski
Northandryun Rovers 0-2 St. John's Arsenal

CSKA continues to show their grit and grind as they won in a challenging late-August snowfall in Iqaluit, while the other teams went onto their business. Elsewhere, life went on as usual - first, the battle of two highly defensive sides ended in a firm coda as Trojana Condommakers FC pulled off a crucial away win over the IRA side that hasn’t really felt like themselves this year. Then Olympique de Rimouski quickly shoved Kingston FC to a pit of question marks, while Padraig McGibbon had secured yet another clean sheet on the 2-0 victory over Northandryun Rovers.

MATCHDAY 5

CSKA Quebec 7-2 Perce Town
Nunavut North Stars 1-0 Iqaluit Red Army
Swanguard Athletic 5-0 Club Racing Sept-Iles
Trojana Condommakers FC 1-4 Levis Athletic
Hamilton Steelers 1-6 Winnipeg United
Haligonian 3-2 Heart of Saguenay
Montreal Koreana 1-0 Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa
Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 1-1 Kingston FC
Zenit Attawapiskat 2-4 Northandryun Rovers
Olympique de Rimouski
2-0 St. John's Arsenal

This week was odd, even by Q-League standards, as not one but two teams had a field day on same matchday as well- CSKA Quebec and Winnipeg United. The Reds, heavily armed and trained under the direction of Jayson Gregoire and Tessa Maitfield, had a quick destruction of Perce Town with five different players scoring goals: Alanna Doyle-Hanna, Oikilde Fusul (2), Robert Lucero, Tessa Maitfield (PK) and Nam Oh-Joon. The likewise happened on the Winnipeg side, with the Delaclav Ruben Albert having an impeccable match in what was the domination on the line of scrimmage for the United over Hamilton Steelers. Elsewhere, Olympique de Rimouski was able to play spoilers to overconfident St. John’s Arsenal at the Steelyard, while UI1877 and Kingston FC had a rainy 1-1 draw to close out the evening.

MATCHDAY 6

Iqaluit Red Army 2-3 CSKA Quebec
Club Racing Sept-Iles 1-1 Perce Town
Levis Athletic 1-1 Nunavut North Stars
Winnipeg United 6-1 Swanguard Athletic
Heart of Saguenay 1-1 Trojana Condommakers FC
Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa 8-0 Hamilton Steelers
Kingston FC 1-1 Haligonian
Northandryun Rovers 4-4 Montreal Koreana
St. John's Arsenal 1-0 Unama'kik-Inverness 1877
Olympique de Rimouski 0-1 Zenit Attawapiskat

CSKA Quebec delivers the third straight loss to Iqaluit to kickoff matchday six, with a convincing goal scored by Jair Marrugo. In Winnipeg, the United were able to maximise their home advantage against a in-province rival as they won 6-1 on a roll from a hat trick performance by Gonzalo Suarez, while Sherbrooke pulled off a perfect game where the only thing to really note beyond ‘sexy’ and ‘reasonable’ was Park Jae-Heon’s clean sheet. The ferry derby between UI1877 and St. John’s Arsenal went closely as well, as a 7-save, clean sheet performance by Padraig McGibbon was the one that made the difference in the Arsenal’s 1-0 win.

MATCHDAY 7

CSKA Quebec 4-0 Club Racing Sept-Iles
Iqaluit Red Army 0-1 Levis Athletic
Perce Town 1-1 Winnipeg United
Nunavut North Stars 1-2 Heart of Saguenay
Swanguard Athletic 1-2 Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa
Trojana Condommakers FC
2-1 Kingston FC
Hamilton Steelers 3-4 Northandryun Rovers
Haligonian
1-0 St. John's Arsenal
Montreal Koreana 2-1 Olympique de Rimouski
Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 2-0 Zenit Attawapiskat

You live by a goal, you die by a goal. That seems to be the motto of the past five days between the last game and this one, as St. John’s Arsenal fell 0-1 short to the Haligonian side led by none other than Leonardo Conavacio. There’s that odd sense of ‘what if’ whenever Conavacio, either on Blacklake, Alianza or Porty, were on the television for the Arsenal fans as they all remember the days when Conavacio was a high-flying academy player with them eternities ago. Oh well. What can you do.

Hamilton Steelers continue their shaky form, losing yet another match against Northandryun Rovers whose Terkala-Lafayette duo has been working at an admirable rate. Perce Town managed to gain a precious single point, as the young squad is still battling injuries and lack of experience all around, while it was Sinead MacDougall who was the heroine of the night in Inverness, as she assisted both goals in the UI1877’s 2-0 win against Zenit Attawapiskat.

Upsets abound, period. Is there much else to be said?

MATCHDAY 8

Olympique de Rimouski 2-1 Hamilton Steelers
Zenit Attawapiskat 4-2 Haligonian
Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 0-1 Montreal Koreana

Eighth game into the season and the life seems to be going somewhat fine, as CSKA Quebec and Montreal Koreana continue to play on their top form despite night and day difference on scoreboard. Elsewhere CR Sept-Iles had a dominant win over Winnipeg United, causing their home fans to throw debris, bottles and lots of objects at the turf, which had caused the Q-League board to fine the United organisation for unruly behaviour. In Inverness, Koreana was able to come up with three points at 75th minute when Jean-Christophe Babin, the 17-year old rookie on his first game as a starter, scored the game-winning goal to silence the home crowd, while Heart of Saguenay brought Cree Martel’s hat trick to beat ten-man Iqaluit Red Army.

MATCHDAY 9

CSKA Quebec 4-0 Winnipeg United
Levis Athletic 1-1 Heart of Saguenay
Club Racing Sept-Iles 2-0 Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa
Iqaluit Red Army 2-1 Kingston FC
Perce Town 1-1 Northandryun Rovers

Swanguard Athletic 0-2 Olympique de Rimouski
Trojana Condommakers FC
3-1 Zenit Attawapiskat
Hamilton Steelers 0-3 Unama'kik-Inverness 1877
Haligonian
4-1 Montreal Koreana

The defensive nightmare continues for Winnipeg United, losing the last two games with 10 goals allowed, including the most recent loss against CSKA Quebec that was surprisingly merciful at 0-4. That said, the cream of the crop for today’s game was that of Haligonian’s 4-1 over their championship foes in Montreal Koreana, whose fans have started to question how much can their defence hold on and how Dejan Wasic isn’t starting the season well. While some observers had questioned Haligonian on the decision to buy Augustin Vladimirescu, the 27-year old Twicetagrian, as their marquee signing to replace departing Denis Dezelac, it seems as if they were proven wrong once again with his goal of the year off the crossbar to make it 2-0 at Leith Park.

MATCHDAY 10

Heart of Saguenay 1-1 CSKA Quebec
Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa 3-0 Winnipeg United
Kingston FC 4-4 Levis Athletic
Northandryun Rovers 4-3 Club Racing Sept-Iles
St. John's Arsenal 1-0 Iqaluit Red Army
Olympique de Rimouski 1-4 Perce Town
Zenit Attawapiskat 1-0 Nunavut North Stars
Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 4-1 Swanguard Athletic
Montreal Koreana 5-1 Trojana Condommakers FC
Haligonian 5-1 Hamilton Steelers

We’re ten games in now, and all we can say is that it’s the same old guys on the top. CSKA Quebec and Montreal Koreana are the top two guys, and the steelworkers from Olympique de Rimouski have done well themselves to be on the third place. While the usual fixtures like Haligonian and UI1877 have underperformed, there were also some positive surprises like Perce Town (wait what?), Trojana Condommakers (welcome back!) and Northandryun Rovers (hey again!).

However, there are some who can only have so many questions to be answered. Heart of Saguenay, on the other hand, will have some work cut out while the squad walked off happy with a 1-1 draw to CSKA, and Kingston FC will have to do something to bring themselves back to the top. While people aren’t really surprised about the horrible performance Hamilton Steelers, the front office and the fans are indeed surprised about how poorly they’ve been doing under their new manager, Llamaean international and longtime club legend Alexander Cartwright, and they don’t want him to be sacked or the team to be relegated.

Tikariotian Lafayette Blasts fire, propel Rovers 4-3 victory over CR Sept-Iles

Xavier Yeo

CALIFORNIA CITY, Manitoba- Kieron Lafayette scoring has become a positive surprise for the Northandryun Rovers. Being on the upper half of the table is also not something that the fans have expected from the club either.

With 17 points, the Rovers are six points away from the league-leading CSKA with a 4-3 victory had doused cold water on the face of Club Racing Sept-Iles that had won two straight prior with 8-0 aggregate score (6-0 over Winnipeg and 2-0 over Sherbrooke). The win was secured by Lafayette, who have scored his seventh goal so far in the season.

While Rovers are still very early into the season, the Jocelyn Nam's side has won once again and are looking to make a convincing push for a spot in the international competition on their third year back in the league.

"We are going for something good here," The 24-year old Tikariotian, who celebrated his birthday earlier in the week said.

In front of the 11th consecutive sellout on their brand new stadium, Eastside Park at Calania Bay, they had all the shouts and applause to receive from the home fans, whom are getting what they were paying for on their season passes.

One of the other reasons, of course, was the team's symbol: Kaapo Terkala, the twenty-nine year old Savojar whose goalscoring ability did not erode on his third season with the club. Three days after the birth of his third child, a daughter, Terkala came back to the field and headed the assault in front of the 3rd minute at the end of the end-to-end rush that had finished with the win.

This is a good sign for the Rovers whom are trying to finish on the top half of the second straight year, after surviving the relegation scare on their first season back.

The arrival of new signings and departures, after a ninth place right before, had meant that the Rovers would have to come out on fire to kick off the season, not only for Nam but for the organisation.

"We all know the challenge is to keep ourselves consistent and competent," Nam said. "Sure, we did lose Morgan who went abroad, but making up for the departure by grinding our teeth to the very bones."

Q-League: Your Home Page for the Quebecois Football's Best of Best

Q-League, Championship and Leagues One and Two in 2076: Footy Manager 2046 predicts next 30 years of Quebecois Football

Guillaume Mbabu, junior staff writer

THETFORD, ESTRIE - Year after year, Footy Mind is one of the highest-selling sports games on computer or mobile in Quebec. Players can take control of clubs and leagues from over 50 countries from the Multiverse (including 8 commonwealth countries, only available on FM), and they can influence everyday and yearly aspects of the team operations, from training to scouting, from designing meal plans to launch hairdryers or not listening to player tactics.

Starting this year, all three tiers of Quebecois professional football (and the League Two, available as semi-professional tier), are available, allowing gamers, football fans and football gamers to take over their immediate Q-League season.

Here, for you, we decided to take apart the Quebecois professional pyramid, from the top to the bottom. In simulating 30 seasons of Q-League, we were able to discover some fascinating results and other tragic ones, and look into career trajectories of thousands of players whom may have or will be (it's customisable!) via their stat and attribute pages.

However, there is something to remember. We would like you to remember that Footy Mind 2046 does not predict any form of league changes, and that those changes that we've seen in actual life with S-FPL or Nepharim Premiership will have to be done on your editing of the database.

With that said, let's see what the Footy Mind 2046 brings us for the pyramid in 2076...

Koreana, Daedonggang 4.25 most successful Q-League clubs

There are some interesting results here. FootyMan 2046 predicts Montreal Koreana, Daedonggang 4.25 and Northandryun Rovers to have their lasting reign on the Q-League, with CSKA Quebec, Haligonian and Perce Town not far away.

Koreana, being the dominant force of the league, has won the most titles in this thirty-year period with 9, including three straight in 2050-53 and a back-to-back campaign in 2064-65. Daedonggang 4.25, whom are currently well in the front of the race to the top of Quebecois Championship, captured 6, but most notably so with 4 straight titles in 2067-71, led by the Quebecois midfielder Simon Varela, who had played 678 games and scored whopping 271 goals with the club.

Northandryun Rovers, CSKA Quebec, Haligonian and Perce Town, in the meanwhile, were all not far behind, having captured 3 each.

Of course, the reflection of dominance by those clubs would not so much be the case once they went onto international football, where challengers were everywhere...

Sherbrooke goes bloody unlucky

Skip this part if your heart's not healthy, Sherbrooke fans.

FootyMan 2046 says not only will the Noksaekjeonsa (translated as Green Warriors) won't be holding the Q-League trophy in next 30 years. It is certainly odd, for one, especially as their rivals Kingston FC had only finished on top 3 thrice but did win one, in 2050-51 (on a great campaign by Suzanna Barter the Kohnheadian phenom currently with the club), while Sherbrooke had finished on top 6 7 times, but none on the top.

Romeo Brown: Q-League's all-time goalscorer

Now, you may have wondered how in the world did Daedonggang 4.25, a historic club but with no history on the top tier after 2003, ended up winning the second-most titles in next thirty years of Q-League history. Well, it looks like our 15-year old may be the reason why.

According to here, Daedonggang 4.25's Romeo Brown (he's an actual prospect with the team, if you google it) is the Q-League's all-time leading scorer in the game with 571 goals in 743 games and 26 seasons, all of which he had spent with Daedonggang 4.25 from the age of 15 to 41.

Brown, having come from one of hundreds of lakes near the Golden Valley region, was an extremely consistent player for the 4.25, helping them win six titles in 2047/48, 2058/59, 2067/68, 2068/69, 2069/70 and 2070/71, while scoring 30 goals for 14 seasons of his career. The local boy, whose weekly wage was 270 thousand Quebecois pounds at one point in his career, retired in 2072, with his final goal coming in a 3-0 season finale against Dukhoborian in May 2072.

The Green Light pub, Quebec City, Capitale-Nationale
01:05, Central Time, Dec 30, 2045


As the night grew deeper and the last metro train left the nearby Oberon station, there were far fewer crowd at the Green Light Pub. Sure, it was a saturday night at the heart of the Quartier Calanien in Quebec City, but the college kids from all across the country or the Commonwealth were back home with their loved ones, and even the locals found this opportunity to skate somewhere nicer or spend time on their flats. The Quartier Calanien's inhabitants usually were one of the two cases; they either grew up in the City of Eternal Lights that they had long accustomed themselves to smell the cigarette smoke or avoid the beret unless to parody themselves, or they came from somewhere far and provincial, to be immersed to the corridors, the arcades and the limestone blocks, and of course, to drink affordable cocktails and do proper wine and cheese.

It's better this way... <<He>> thought to himself, as he sat at a corner table and quietly drank a glass of gin he did not remember the brand it was made out of. The city is feeling the buzz again, but is afraid to admit it. Who are we to say on that?

As a bunch of CSKA Quebec fans, already drunk from the smell of victory and the scent of alcohol, entered the pub from, he looked at the window outside and was reminded of the game from earlier. Right, they did win, <<he>> realised, vaguely remembering a 75th goal scored by Tessa Maitfield off a header, before smiling at how easily he fell into sleep earlier in the day. <<he>> was a strong figure, tall and overpowering by appearance and technically proficient by efficiency, and he was by all means accustomed to alcohol. As he checked out the television screen not far away, he was able to catch the very headline that caught him:

CSKA 4-3 HALIGONIAN : IS IT COMING HOME?


He chuckled at the very text, as he watched the highlights of the game and found himself drinking more and more.

2045-46 Q-League : Second Half


We are now halfway into the Q-League season. For one, it looks like there is a clear four-way race for the top. Having come off a managerial change, Montreal Koreana is once again at the top of the race. It is not because of what we've come to expect with their usual brand of firepower offence, though, but rather that of consistency and defensive efficiency that has come to benefit them more often than not. On the contrary, it appears as if CSKA Quebec is only going to accept thwacking their opponents with a metal beam, as they (gasp!) lead the Q-League in scoring with 48 goals scored- thanks to their Fusul-Lucero-McCaffrey trio that struck the iron while hot.

The likewise cannot be said for some of the stragglers at the bottom of the table, though they have had their excuses here and there. For Iqaluit and Hamilton, it may be how the team has gotten too old and may need some time to replenish what they have lost, but for the other two it's harder to say. Trojana and Kingston may have had some awful runs here and there, but they also had tough luck with bounces too. So while the local fans may be quick to press panic button (sorry KFC fans, we've seen too many of y'all complaining about 'mediocre playoff finishes' on the QHL side of things, when they really mean second or third round finishes), they can just go and laugh at the Zenit fans' misfortunes right above them on the standings.

In the middle, though, we do have some surprises, as the promoted sides Nunavut North Stars and Levis Athletic stay some distance above the relegation zone and Sherbrooke stumble. Is this the time of troubles coming for the Green Warriors, like what we have seen the last while with Swanguard? That we'll have to see...

Hwang Joon-Ho: Communications Key for Koreana to Grow


Gustave Marat-Aubin

As a player, Hwang Joon-Ho knew the challenges of being on a perennial contender would mean great emotional labour for anybody. He's been through there, with St. John's Arsenal, Port Sebastian and Montreal Koreana.

Now, after what has not been an easy season as the unexpected manager of the Montreal Koreana side, he has come to appreciate what it takes to manage a team and try to understand the values of the communication.

The past six months of his life, whether positive or negative, was serving as the reserves teams manager, a job he has served admirably for the past two years. The contract expiry of Jannick Kontiola and his subsequent move to Chromatik football club has caused Montreal's boards of directors to hire Hwang, just two years off his last Q-League match with Koreana, to take over as the first team manager. The unexpected promotion and loss of depth left Hwang with an unique challenge.

The season, where Koreana is currently placed so far, reminded Hwang the importance of communications between the players and their coaches.

"I'm not really the man of words. I wasn't when I was a player, still am not one and will never be. But to be clear and understanding, that mental part of the game, is something we always need in order to do well." said Hwang on a call with The Taegukgi, mentioning that the adjustment from his playing career to that of a managerial one was a challenge.

Thirty games into the season, Montreal Koreana is currently sitting second with a 18-6-6 record and 60 points, just one behind the league-leading CSKA Quebec. However, the Koreana side has been struggling in the previous five game stretch, having lost three out of five, and only three points ahead of Olympique de Rimouski, whom had beaten them at the Steelyard three weeks ago.

The outcome hasn't been ideal, and the team hasn't played pretty en route to what's still a decent year so far. But Koreana's Director of Football, Eugene Cohen, remains positive, as he said the squad 'is getting used to a different mold' and that it's likely going to be something good for future.

"We cannot win every day, and that's not what we ask from [Joon-Ho] either," said Cohen. "He's someone whose experience as a player should translate well into the current game and with more experience, we should expect him to do better both domestically and internationally down the road."

Several players had promising performances, Hwang said, including Quebecois rightback Hendrix Cha, Zeta Rekan goalkeeper Dejan Wasić, who has handled the burden of being Koreana’s no. 1 goalkeeper well on his first season here, and Quebecois midfielder Shim Dong-Woon, whose first season on rotation has seen some noteworthy remarks.

“The players are tuned in nicely,” Hwang said. “These guys give their best, and that’s good. I expect that from them. Just the running the grind through that mill.”
One prospect Hwang has taken a particular notice so far into the season was forward Jean-Christopher Babin, the 17-year old prospect who had signed his first-team contract with the team back in April.

“He’s a good kid, but hasn’t been the most receptive with his surroundings at times,” Hwang said, noting that he did not necessarily have the best tactical understanding on the senior level of football. “Fortunately he did respond well when he’s substituted in, or when he’s asked to cross the ball as a starter. So there’s good progress being made. But I need to push him harder on things else, he won’t be a player he wishes to be.”

Babin, who has taken over from Kelssekian international Louis Kuelvic for the starting spot for the second half of the season, agrees, stating that he still has ways to go before really proving himself on the club.

“Certainly. Playing on the greatest club in the nation, with the manager who has achieved greatness as a player, there’s much to be learned from. As I get around the way of the ropes, I hope to continue making difference and give the team and our fans what they want.” he said.

While the Koreana organisation has kept itself free from major changes that had been customary of certain football clubs, the club is nonetheless aware that some changes, both long and short term, would be necessary. For one, the Blue Devils are expected to make critical renovations to its Chambord-le-Chapin clubhouse, something that the club hopes will improve the youth and reserve players’ development for the future.

Some personnel changes may also be considered. Three unnamed players, including two starters, have stated their intention to retire at the end of the season, and Koreana is considering possible options it could take to upgrade the team.

Cohen and his staff, long familiar with the wave of youth had come through the club, as well as the depletion of its youth ranks to transfers abroad the previous offseason, have begun assessing talent and promotion of the youth talent they have. They are also expected to sign four academy products, Noah Mattern-Soh, Clement Mattern-Soh, Mathinna Bouck, and Alonso Cizeron.

At the same time, they will be retaining the services of the defending Golden Boot winner, Alexandre. The Valladar pivot, who has won the Golden Boot on his first season with Koreana, is in contention to defend his title with 19 goals to his boot. With Alexandre up front, and Leah McKechnie at the back, the Koreana side is confident that it will have its cut of work done.

“It’s not easy for these guys. Let’s be clear,” Cohen said, to close his phone call with The Taegukgi. “But we all know the future should look bright and we will work on it together. That’s the only way to go.”

The magical run for California University's women's team, as their hopes were quickly extinguished on their home field against a high-flying Lakeshore side. In the meanwhile, another home side's hopes were put into rest quickly, as CSKA Quebec, hoping to walk off with a good ole cup for their Schottian manager, scored three early goals in the first half to put away the semifinals in an anticlimatic game at the Steelyard.

Club Racing Sept-Iles were involved in a nine-goal thriller- a 3-6 home loss to UI1877 who saw every moment to keep themselves in the race for a spot in internatonal competition- and they cannot help but to feel the hurt as they are racing to escape the relegation. Fortunately for them, only one of the three teams right below them on the standings - Iqaluit Red Army - picked up any point, as both United and Steelers lost on what’s been a fairly straightforward day of football.

Elsewhere, Trojana Condommakers quietly ‘pulled out’ a simple victory over Swanguard while Kingston FC won a crucial 4-2 victory over CSKA Quebec with Raimundo Puga, in middle of the Capitolien assault into the Zenit zone, was able to end the comeback attempt with a goal off penalty kick. As for those south of the River, Zenit Attawapiskat left the home fans sigh following a 1-0 victory over Levis Athletic.

If the previous seasons had seen Arsenal losing because of allowing too many goals, now we have the opposite issue, as St. John’s falls 1-2 on home to the Kingston side that has just won two straight. This match, of course, can be looked at in two ways- it may be a sign that Kingston FC, after a horrible two-third of the season, may be finally going up and up, or that St. John’s Arsenal, highly relying on their national team goalkeeper’s performance, may not be as dominant as the scoreboard seems to suggest.

Elsewhere, Iqaluit Red Army won 4-2 away in the battle of relegation-zone dwellers, whilst Zenit Attawapiskat and Heart of Saguenay drew a close one. Zenit side, entering seventh ahead of the match, can only feel but to wonder what would have happened if Raimundo Puga’s goal weren’t disallowed by VAR.

Kingston FC, folks. Just when you think they are done, they prove you wrong with a three-game winning streak, as they secure a home win against Zenit Attawapiskat squad that had far too many missed opportunities the last while. While the KFC still has to do a bit more to ensure they are not going to be dragged alongside their big-name company in Winnipeg United (who lost to Hals, 0-4, at home), it appears as if they will be able to assure Suzanna Barter, arguably their future franchise player at age 19, to stay for much longer than next month or two.

At the same time, it may not be too late for CSKA Quebec to catch a quick breath. While they were unable to secure a precious home win against the Padraig’s Wall, a narrow Hearts win against Koreana may be just enough for them in this crucial race...at the end of the day. The likewise, in the meanwhile, can be said towards Levis Athlete, who also thrashed Hamilton Steelers to push for a more comfortable placing on the table.

Coupe du Roi Final
CSKA Quebec (QL) 1–1 Lakeshore (CL) (2–3 AET)


It is, without doubt, the greatest season in Lakeshore history. Not only did they win the Quebecois Championship for the first time in 57 tears, they had pounded and upset their way into winning their first Coupe du Roi win in history, and the expected weight that comes with it. It was the match of the David and the Goliath; CSKA, with all their talent in display at the very final professional match managed by Ross Killanen, had Tessa Maitfield (Player of the Year), Grayson Gregoire, the new striker duo and 19-year old Doug Hosmer on the goal. As it turned out, football is round and the unexpected bounce, on top of many Capitolien players' frustrations unresolved, would mean that it won't be the Goliath who survives, but the sole David by the name of Hong Yeong-Sahm. The 17-year old is the man who, on his final game with Lakeshore before heading to somewhere bigger and farther, give the Lakeshore the coda to what has been an excellent run for the Kingston-area club.

TV Review: 'Thank You, And Goodnight' is a Documentary of the ages for Reds fans

Phoebe Lloyd-Maranda

QUEBEC CITY, C-N - 'Thank You, And Goodnight' is a documentary broadcasted on QBC. It is the first of four seasons that the national broadcaster aims to make in the Thank You, And Goodnight franchise, a documentary series that follows a Quebecois football franchise throughout its domestic season. For its inaugural season, the documentary follows the CSKA Quebec FC, also known as the Reds, the Cheoyongs, or the Caps (reference to Capitoliens, the people coming from the heart of the National Capital Region). The series covers the Quebec City military club in the 2045-46 season, in the aftermath of their high-flying offseason in which they had made significant offseason transfers but was also involved in a massive nightclub scandal. Of course, the major plot feature of the series, is the final managerial season of the now-retired manager Ross Killanen and his group of colourful, flashy players whose identities collide.

The plot of the series, a QBC classic on its own, varies widely in terms of its pacing, as the offseason passes by in a matter of colours, blurry and newspaper titles. The controversial 'Blue Fun Fest' that had kicked off the team's disappointing offseason was marked with a series of montages and poetic references, with little insight into the assassination of a notorious rapper with criminal nation in 6oixan9euf on a nearby nightclub. It's an interesting way to start the season, as it only points to the noises and distraction that Killanen, the hard-nosed Schottian manager, views as no more than nuisances, but perhaps better way of transition could have been found with better form of flash under their new transfers. It may have also done to keep the CBC free from potential lawsuits under libel, something that the public broadcaster unfortunately has become too frequently sensitive towards.

Killanen, a Schottian in the country that may be antithesis to someone of his mold, is an ideal manager, and if there's one thing he knows how to do is to get these players together. The long managerial history is clearly appreciated by the producers, as much of the series is rather about his swan song. From past photographs, interviews, to his recollections of all the players he were privileged to coach in any level, provide an unexpected ray of irony and shine on his career, inflating his ego.

While 'Thank You, And Goodnight' does have its errors with viewing Killanen in perhaps too much of a positive light (especially for the home fans), something that is presented well throughout this series is his humanism and flexibility. His experience as the no-surrender, no-bullshit manager is certainly complemented nicely with his understanding of the players two generations below him, and that's where his flexibility shows. A personal favourite is before the away match against Iqaluit Red Army where Killanen, before googly-eyed players on the underground lockers, alternates descriptions of his players with a swear word or two. Aided with his adjustment into a different formation, aimed at a counterattacking style of play (a rarity for CSKA side that has tried to get its offence going all year), culminates in a 3-2 win.

The filmmakers also do an admirable job to use the footballers to tell the team's version of their championship story. Often, a player or two are featured prominently every episode, whether before or after a game, and the production crew has done well to utilise the first-team squad who signed the media rights contract before the season started. Playing under one of the most historic Quebecois football clubs and a branch of the CSKA Quebec athletics organisation, they are shown to be handling the public tasks long expected of the servants of the people (the Quebecois Forces). By bringing their public services into the foray, they are also able to bring out the best in their portrayal of different players. One key example, for example, was that of the goalkeeper Pierre-Mathieu Guidetti, a local boy who grew up down the road on brutalist apartments turned into meth-houses, and spent all his life under the system for a better life. It is an intriguing reminder about what the club means to many people, and helps interpreting the human aspect of the sportsmen.

Of course, the humanist side of the documentary does not come off with downside of its own. No matter how many documentaries have been made about such, football is still very much business-driven on own, and we don't always get the business side of it. That is where the series does not always feel authentic about, though part of it may have been because of the club's awareness towards it all- Killanen is aware, the veterans are aware, the season MVP in Tessa Maitfield is aware, and certainly the rookies in David Ngo-Shin and An Seung-Mi are. The meticulous editing, of course, is there to help with driving forward the 'swan song' narrative, where everybody walks off happily ever after a thrilling season where the Capitoliens had walked off a special kind of winners after a close race all season long. But you cannot help but to wonder.

In addition, the Player of the Year-worthy season of Tessa Maitfield is rather underplayed. The midfielder, the daughter of the Crisisbless United manager Timothy Maitfield, goes through many challenges during the season, but more could have been talked about her beyond being, well, 'the player' on the stacked midfield corps for CSKA. It is evident that she was not really the most colourful of players, but aren't we supposed to get over that hurdle as well?

All in all, 'Thank You, And Good Night' is a good kickoff to what should be a promising series about Quebecois football clubs with clear strengths and weaknesses. Ross Killanen was a simple, mercurial figure and emphasising the humanism in the colourful, oft-frustrated manager is a great choice. The characters draw much interest to the players and the CSKA football club as whole. However, more work is to be done with it.

Q-LEAGUE 2046-47 SEASON


The sea of red and white was covering the Roxborough neighbourhood of St. John's, as the three-million fans of St. John's’ finest team, the Arsenal, rang their cheer for them in the Blue Point Arena, and blasted their vuvuzelas out in the Blue Point Stadium.

It was once again a sellout crowd with excellent turnout for the Gooners' fans for their 156th consecutive season in the Quebecois top flight, dating back to the very first season of Quebecois football. With Arsenal having finished second last season, their best in over a decade, everybody was looking forward for the beloved Newfoundland crown jewel to continue their success, especially those in their twenties to forties who remembered their heydays. The fans knew it was going to be a rough season, especially after the offseason saga where the Arsenal organisation's financial difficulties had forced them to sell five of their starters, including the national team goalkeeper Padraig McGibbon (now at 1912 Stelburg) and stout centre back Chewbacca (Busembe Timberwolves), but the fans still felt that they, especially given their improved depth from just two to three seasons prior, were going to have a good season either way.

Even with all the chaotic changes the organisation was going through, it was all so clear to those fans as they sang the chants and beat the drums, disrupting the average saturday routine for those trying to ignore the presence of football in their lies here. From the fishing villages of west coast, where handball and hockey were the major sports, to the Gooner-raided suburbs of the provincial capital at the very eastern tip of it all, the sound of those Arsenal fans were seemingly unstoppable. All the island-born members of the Provincial cabinet, as well as two ministers of the Federal cabinet, were lifelong fans of the football club, and so were a couple of million islanders living outside of Newfoundland, in Mainland Quebec. The nature of football in this isolated island, driven by its famous high school championships hosted at the very Roxboroughh, as well as surprisingly high rate of Newfoundlander children plying their trade in mainland football clubs, had meant that the team was not only the only team on the top 2 tiers of the Quebecois football pyramid. Of course, the spirits were kept high for the islanders with Arsenal's success, which had distributed its wealth and retired footballers back into the island, going on for over hundred and fifty years, and they didn't mind it. So the fans didn't mind it at all, and just viewed the Arsenal fandom as a way of life.

Only three teams are left with a perfect record now, as we hit the two-game mark into the season- 1) Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa, who was able to beat Levis Athletic in Stade Alexandre V with a Hamidou Diressa hat-trick, 2) CSKA Quebec, whose Yue manager Chen Huikang has so far managed to survive the ongoing circus going on there, and 3) the recently-promoted Mipojoseon, who won in Sept-Iles with a six-save performance by their goalkeeper, the former Arsenal starter Jean-Gabriel McReynolds. Montreal Koreana recovered from their disappointing loss at Apple Bowl the previous week with a convincing win of their own, as the first of many rivalry matches between Koreana’s seventeen year old Jean-Christophe Babin and Kingston’s twenty year old Suzanna Barter saw them scoring two goals each in what was a glorious win at the Six. The Rovers find themselves lucky winners at the Northandryun Derby between Swanguard Athletic, where benches were cleared and both sides are expected to be handed with suspensions and fines, while the Nakdong Derby also ended in a bitter manner as Haligonian captain John Hare and Heart of Saguenay forward Benoit Djaozandry were handed five-matchday suspensions for throwing punches at each other in what was a heated match in Leith Park.

Only one team’s left with a perfect record now, as CSKA finds themselves walking out with a draw in Iqaluit Stadium, probably the toughest venue for any opponent sides to play on, while Mipojoseon didn’t get the bounce they had wanted in the battle of two promoted sides. Elsewhere, plenty of actions existed as the teams checked their rosters and assessed their respected squad’s strengths and weaknesses. For this week, the game of the week honour had to go out to the East Coast Mill derby, as the new editions saw Olympique de Rimouski host the underperforming Unama'kik-Inverness 1877. While the Olympique, widely considered by many to be among three title favourites this season, was trailing for most of the match, Ji Sam-Yeong’s side was able to quickly tie it with two goals on the ninetieth and ninety-third minutes through a Johannes Bandi volley and costly own goal by UI1877 goalkeeper Suzanna Schaefer, whose gaffe may fuel a potential goalkeeper controversy in near future.

Is nobody going to stop Suzanna Barter from scoring? While the Kohnheadian midfielder from outer space was a star on her own right previous season, and nobody denied that, it seemed as if she’s transformed into an unstoppable force so far into this season, as Alex Cartwright’s side confidently walked off Stade Alexandre V with a clean two-nil victory. With five goals on her name, it is safe to assume that Barter merits serious conversation to start for Kohnhead side.

Otherwise, week four has seen a mix of success and failure for the teams, whether it be through odd bounces or missed opportunities. It first started with poor Haligonian, who has yet to win a game in their first season without Leonardo Conavacio, who has resigned from Haligonian on the medical grounds, and ended with Antoine Chenier-Hong’s Mipojoseon, who upset Montreal Koreana in a 3-2 victory at The Reneegrad to rebound from their loss the previous week. In the meanwhile, CSKA Quebec walks off lucky in the opposite situation to their eternal rivals, as Tessa Maitfield’s brilliant assist to Robert Lucero on the fifty-seventh minute saw the hundred-thousand Capitoliens go home with glee forty minutes later.

It was a slightly-subdued night at VisitMB.que Arena in Prince Eric’s bustling downtown. For a team that’s been struggling to rejuvenate themselves year after year, Swanguard Athletic was able to draw consistent sellouts to their small 28,000-seater, and the noise level was more than enough for both sides to have a solid match. Hwang Joon-Ho of course knew that it was partly due to the fact that they, the big bad Montreal Koreana, were the ones visiting, and that the locals, even when not hardcore Swanguard fans, held interest whenever the winningest side in the Quebecois history was coming there once every year. With Koreana’s youth adding to the buzz, the fans would be watching to see how the home squad would fare against the team whose gap has only widened from them.

‘Seventh-seventh minute, and it looks like a two-nil lead might be just about enough.’ Hwang Jae-Gyeong, Joon-Ho’s second son and assistant manager, notified his father of the progress, as they watched Shim Dong-Woon landing a solid cross from the right corner. While he was previously one of many talented prospects who had come from the Koreana Academy over the past decade, Shim has since really developed nicely in his two and a half seasons with Koreana so far, and now he stood a solid chance of national team selection in the upcoming AOCAF this June.

His father, who, as a footballer, has seen a lot more collapses than Jae-Gyeong ever did, disagreed. ‘Not yet, son. Still need a crucial substitution, and you know we cannot feel confident about a win until the final whistle.’

‘Still, we should substitute a couple of players by now, dad.’ Jae-Gyeong commented, trying to emphasise that they have a Coupe Du Roi to be concerned about. ‘No way you are going to keep all the forwards, aren’t you?’ Jae-Gyeong looked back into the match, where Roberto Lattanzio, Jean-Christophe Babin and Alexandre were the key three guys up front.

‘True, good idea.’ Hwang Joon-Ho agreed with a couple of nods. ‘Let’s see who’s up to the snuff. Kuelvic’s still not really up to form, Mishima will play ninety-minutes on Coupe du Roi, and yadda-yadda.’ He slowly thought it out, looking at the bench, before making a decision.

‘Zinaida, you’re up next!’ Hwang Joon-Ho tapped the sixteen-year old’s shoulder, gesturing that she’s about to make her first appearance with the first-team. Little did he know that this was going to be the beginning of an illustrious, celebrated career for his finest pupil as a football manager...

It was only the third round of Coupe du Roi, but there happened a massacre of many favourites who found themselves short of a goal or two, and would have to come away with no less disappointment than whatever they were feeling earlier. Among them, the headlines will probably focus on Northandryun Rovers’ embarrassing loss to St-Gabriel-Richard Marauders as the defending QIS champions took advantage of the bonding opportunity their away trip to California City and gave the Rovers a nice little bondage action. On a less pronouncing note was Perce Town’s loss to Leaside Lions of Kingston suburbs, which was arguably even more shocking, but the quarantining of half the team due to what they had originally feared to be measles outbreak, but instead turned out to be a mere food sickness incident, can sometimes do that to you.

Big results and continued misfortunes this week as we kick off this week. In the major clash between two giants and old day rivals Koreana and Arsenal sees Koreana win with a brace by Alexandre in easy fashion, while Haligonian continues to find themselves frustrated and disappointed, as they could only come out with a two-two draw this weekend. To make it worse, both their starting centre back Gregory Scherwey and rightback Ericsson Yi were injured this match, which only adds to the list of misfortunes the fans have been enduring back in East Coast, as they continue to seek their first win in forever.

The East Coast derby this season wasn’t something that neither Haligonian nor Arsenal fans were looking forward to, especially as both sides have no less disappointments to express and no more excitement to talk about what looked to be yet another promising year is going out quite...catastrophic. This same sentiment was expressed by the Haligonian manager, Hannah Wilton, who said at the pre-match media conference, ‘Of course it is unfortunate neither side is really handling it the way they are expected to handle it, but what can I say? Somebody will walk off happy and somebody won’t.’ Unfortunately, the unhappy one happened to be Haligonian as the home side scored four in what was a perfect night for Cristian Victoriano with two goals, with Gam Michaels and Moh Tae-Joon adding one each as well. The words on the town are that the Haligonian board is once again contacting Leonardo’s services, if they can still find him in Quebec.

Elsewhere, Lakeshore once again surprised a slightly-overwhelmed Koreana side with a draw, while the Saguenay Derby quietly ended with a dominant performance by Olympique de Rimouski, whose only blip on the radar was that they had allowed the goal from an excellent cross by Noh Soo-Gyeong.

Just as when life gets better for Rob Alexander’s St. John’s Arsenal, they are struck with regression in form. Leif Tannenbaum strikes first at the thirty-five minute mark, and then does it again on the sixth-second mark to pick up a win over the Arsenal side that hasn’t been able to find their groove. Olympique managed to win a battle of the firewagon football teams against Kingston FC with Johanes Mandi scoring two goals in the eighty-seventh past Jeremy Chenevert and ninety-first minute past Eren Knox to flip the tables. With Olympique remaining the only undefeated side, their yo-yo form is somewhat forgiven, especially if we compare to that of upsets suffered by Haligonian, Arsenal or especially Koreana, who just lost their second straight home game after conceding two early goals to the Trojana squad. ‘I guess we knew they were going to park the bus,’ says Koreana manager Hwang Joon-Ho to the press after the match, not feeling slightest bit of surprise that they would do this anyday.

For the second straight week, Trojana does the magnum magic in upsetting much higher ranked opponents than the provincials. This time, however, nobody’s really surprised, as the disappointments continued for Haligonian. Leonardo Conavacio’s nowhere to be found, Ericsson Yi’s still out, and the team has a problem where MacKellar cannot be the only option on midfields and Vladimirescu cannot be the only one looking to score. For a team that’s won plenty over the past half-decade, they really didn’t look comfortable, and something has to be done with this team...sooner than later.

Elsewhere, life looks much better- St. John’s Arsenal leftback Benoit-Richard Ukaleq celebrated in a priouette after scoring his second goal against Zenit Attawapiskat, while sixteen year old Zinaida Hosmer’s first professional start ended successfully with a seventh-minute goal she landed off volley, one the Koreana fans would hope to see for many years to come.

Though only 45 years old, Rob Alexander’s hair was all grey and his mind in a persistent state of bog, as he watched his players slowly getting changed in the away locker room after their crucial victory over UI1877. The Bakerian, from the beginning, knew this was his opportunity to prove himself, and he felt that this was a right opportunity to seek after having managed in all five tiers of Bakerian professional football. Even with the team going through financial crises of their own and losing five of their starters from the previous season, they still had the heart and much of the depth intact. Rob knew it from the surface that he was doing his best to get the most out of his players, who responded to him very well.

Unfortunately, watching this group of players in front of him was still a visible challenge for the 45-year old, as he lit a cigarette and watched the smoke rise into the air. Robert Alexander knew the team they had was solid, but with all the injuries and drop-off in form, he wasn’t sure if the guys he had were ‘enough’ so to put forth. They did manage to sign Benoit-Richard Ukaleq, the national team leftback widely considered to be right behind Bastian Borges Jr. in potential, from Iqaluit Red Army, Cristian Victorino’s the usual scoring stud, and Arden Luther was certainly one of the better goalkeepers in the Q-League, as things stood. But for what? It’s a battle Alexander knew he had to figure out, but did not have the answer as St. John’s has so far barely escaped the wrath of the relegation zone.

'Gonna be a long season,' Heather Gunn, Robert's assistant manager sighed, as they watched Owen McQuaid calm down a couple of rookies from fighting each other. 'Seems like the odds are against us, even on a good day,' she added, trying not to add too much about a mere fight among the lads. Not that it was needed anyway- the ferry ride back to St. John's alone was going to provide that quality time for the guys- but what are they really going to talk to each other over?

'We'll see if Bohng and Sen can figure out their school scores first.' Alexander suggested in a derivative manner. 'These kids still gotta graduate from school, you know.'

It seems as if there’s every ray of misfortune that’s struck upon Haligonian, as the contenders took eleven weeks to finally land their first win of the season. It took many attempts, several humiliating losses and equally disappointing draws, but they had finally done it with a goal each by Augustin Vladimirescu and Archie Weir, in what was commented by team captain Seamus MacKellar as a ‘ninety-nine out of hundred percent match’.

Outside of Sept-Iles, there weren’t as many goals, though the exceptions did exist with Kingston FC sawing off the visiting CSKA side in the nine-goal goalfest where Sebastien Petit got red-carded after a goal, two-assist performance for landing a middle finger at the Kings of the Southwest supporters section, before throwing his jersey at them.

The CSKA Stadium was where the first rendition of the Guerre Quebecoise of this season, where the CSKA Quebec and Montreal Koreana, both firmly on the top half of the table, were met with heightened expectations. CSKA, with Christine II and the senior members of the Royal Family in attendance, felt greater pressure to win this game, especially as they were locked on a four-way tie for second place with Olympique, Mipojoseon and Perce Town to begin the season, while the Koreana side were slower to take off, but just started to show their edge. Eventually, Chen Huikang’s side was able to claim a major victory, his first of hopefully many Guerre Quebecoise victories to come, with a sixth-seventh minute goal by Tequiloa Christian Duque, to show that their depth is more than enough to mask the absence of Sebastien Petit.

Haligonian’s 3-0 win over Daedonggang 3.26 was the one they really needed, and it appears to some that the Haligonian Board, after spending a few weeks looking for Leonardo Conavacio, has decided to give their manager a chance for now. In the battle of two fiery offences, Zenit Attawapiskat landed a statement performance in a 6-2 win, as Raimundo Puga’s first match as Zenit captain ended with three assists and a yellow card. Finally, Olympique de Rimouski’s winning ways continue with a 2-1 win at the Steelyard versus Haligonian, with the game-winning goal scored by their talismanic striker Min Dong-Jin.

The number thirteen also means excitement in Quebec, and there were quite a few interesting results we’ve had this weekend! In Perce, the sellout crowd of Parc Des Patriotes (Cap. 16,890) witnessed Alanna Doyle-Hanna’s game-winning goal against CSKA Quebec to give the home side an assuring win, the one they could trust the small-city lads and lasses not to be anywhere near relegation zone for a while. In a year of continued surprises for them, Mipojoseon surprised Kingston FC with a 3-2 win of their own, while Nunavut North Stars kept their points streak going with a 2-0 win over Trojana. Heart of Saguenay snaps their losing streak with a 3-0 win over Swanguard Athletic, after which their star forward, Benoit Djaozandry happens to be spotted at a Prince Eric nightclub with purple paint all over him.

For a team that had utterly dominated the Championship the prior season, Daedonggang 3.26 is having a terrible season. Still, they are able to steal a couple of points away at the brink of loss from Zenit Attawapiskat with the brilliant nutmeg from Nicolas Tessier. Heart of Saguenay, on the other hand, wishes that they weren’t so confident heading into this match, as they were sucker punched by the Arsenal side that needs every point possible to avoid the basement. The matchup between longtime friends Hazel Hanson-Conavacio and Tessa Maitfield is a familiar affair for those who have watched Q-League a few times at this point, and it ends with Haligonian coming out on top. Hanson-Conavacio’s excellent cross is followed by the first goal of the season for Heo Chan-Hyeok, whose header goes the other way from William Bousquet’s direction, into the goal.

It was early December, and Zinaida was noticing the snow that's beginning the drape the Koreana Complex, as she got out of private practice, her eyes looking at the various townhouses and duplexes that surrounded the campus. While walking, she was noticing how cold and snowy Montreal became in the winter. Then, as she watched and wondered about the lives of the people who were living there, Zinaida started to feel hope that maybe she's not far away from it all. Growing up, Zinaida knew she had talent but due to a matter of circumstances and her choices, she had decided to enjoy the sun rise and fall in the beautiful West Coast. Her parents, late Grant Woodcarver and Elora Watkins, had their best intentions for the kid not to fall into the temptation, and this no doubt had a profound effect on her to grow up normal. Perhaps that was why Pierre McCarthy, her agent who also happened to know her late mother very well, took her under his wings and kept a close watch with contracts and provisions to make sure that she would not repeat the mistakes some of his earlier clients had made.

Still, the culture shock was more than enough as it took a very short time for Zinaida to realise that the Koreana District bled blue and white. Whether you weren't from here, growing up in the home of the Koreana Society (author's comment: see Maccabis in Israel) or not, the city's mid-section, from the West End theatres to the affluent folks on the Golden Mile, bled the blue and we all got to hear about it. Banked by neverending bankroll, The Samseongoloondongjang and the Koreana Complex were befitted with the state of art facilities and equipments in every corner, and even though it still required refurbishments on certain sections, the campus still blended history and modernity with elegance that only a team of Koreana's calibre could pull off here. Having come from Prince Eric, where she's mostly played collegiate football and she had originally planned to attend college before entering the professional level, the culture shock in playing under these environments was still new to her.

We’re almost halfway into the season, and the Olympique de Rimouski remains undefeated as they come away with a 2-2 tie at the Steelyard, where the team’s experience and patience really showed with a pair of goals by Min Dong-Jin to show that they can beat any opposition at any point in time. Still, the Olympique fans all know, even after a crucial Mipojoseon defeat to Swanguard Athletic, they aren’t anywhere near a clear lead into the season, especially with Perce Town and Mipojoseon only two points behind the first place.

The same cannot be applied to Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 for resting several of their key personnel. Sure, it was a matter of pragmatic decision in that they, in what many would call a ‘lost season’ (silly proposition given that they could have gone the Gooners’ or Hals’ way), stands a better chance in making a deep Coupe du Roi run. Still, even with Montreal Koreana’s struggles in the first ten matches of the season, the difference in talent depth was going to bite those who underestimate. A quick attack from Alexandre set them ahead, and all it took thereafter was a couple of miscalculated passes from UI1877’s Marcel Shin, whose job replacing Sinead MacDougall for the match may have been too much for him, to have them go ahead by 3-0. UI1877 does claw one back with a long-range shot from Mathaios Makrotsis, with the Vdaran forward making every move possible to keep them in running, but the score remains 3-1, with the home fans booing Clement Byeon’s squad for a poor performance.

If the upsets from the second round weren’t enough, then you are never going to hear the end of the third round. Among the thirty two sides who were knocked out of them, the biggest one happened tobe Haligonian, whose nightmare of a season just got worse with an early elimination at the hands of Lakeshore ten points above them in standings. Nunavut North Stars also saw their home advantage wasted in a penalty-kick loss to St. John’s Arsenal, while Mipojoseon voluntarily got chainsawed by fielding a mostly U18 side, in order to focus more on the league. Another key matches to note were Kingston FC’s home loss to Sangju Sangmu and the clash of recently-relegated sides in Winnipeg United and PLI Islanders.

No matter how recent and ongoing their struggles may have been, CSKA continues to not lose their hold on the pedal, and even after valiant effort shown by Swanguard Athletic, the Capitoliens still walk away with five goals. Fusul-Lucero duo continues to be their usual selves, combining for three goals and two assists, and at some point you cannot help but to wonder how long this duo will last. St. John’s Arsenal also walk off happy today as they are doing all their best to escape further time in the relegation zone, and they do it with a Cristian Victtorino goal that seals the deal in a 1-0 victory. Perce and Rimouski’s race to the top continues as they exchange their places almost every week, and this time it’s Perce who’s on top as Olympique falls to Daedonggang 3.26 in Val d’Or.

The seventh-placed Zenit Attawapiskat will be more than happy about their victory over CSKA Quebec, especially with only six points separating them and the league-leading Perce Town and five between them and fourteenth-place Levis Athletic. The same won’t be said, however, about Mipojoseon as the Habpo-based side is humiliated at home by Lakeshore. Elsewhere, Heart of Saguenay survives a bloodbath against Sept-Iles, while Sherbrooke continues to fly under the radar and into the fourth place with a two-goal performance by Eloise Kweon, whose performance should merit the twenty-one year old a national team selection in the eyes of many Green Warriors fans.

Legacies and success are all fluid concepts and mirages, and the Haligonian fans were all feeling the brunt of it as the fans began bombarding the Haligonian l’Instagramme posts calling for the resignation of their poor first-year manager. To be fair to them, the truth is that they have a very good team on paper, but the series of misfortunes and missed bounces all went wrong. After their 3-0 victory over Daedonggang 3.26, they have lost three and drawn three, and they conclude the first half without a win. Trojana and Mipojoseon face off, and it is Trojana who prevails here. Emil Bohler, the Squorn forward who stuck by them when they got relegated three years ago, is having a good day of his own with a tip-toe goal to complete a good counterattack.

Nunavut North Star travels south to face Levis Athletic and they come away with a win as well, though you can’t be so sure about them yet, especially with what appears to be a bigger gap than you’d imagine from 4 points between fourteenth-place Levis and Northandryun Rovers, not to mention those right behind them in Nunavut North Stars, CR Sept-Iles and Daedonggang 3.26.

Episode 5 Summary - Forever Arsenal: The Documentary

The third quarter of the season does not get any bit easier, as the Arsenal starts it with a Coupe du Roi trip away to AS Blainville, a city of 300,000 located just outside of Montreal the city, but still inside the Montreal province. Standing in the locker room, Rob Alexander and his assistant Hannah Gunn keeps encouraging his players, who appeared far too distracted looking at their cellphones and listening to trap music that neither of them really understood why.

For those who are watching this from the future time, they know the directors kept it to show that it's not a good sign for the club of that calibre, and frankly, you the viewers are right on it. Next thing you know, they lose in a 1-5 defeat, rather humiliating for the players and the fans at the time but really, hindsight's 20-20 as Rob Alexander chooses to rest Victorino ahead of the Boxing Day matchup versus Lakeshore.

To emphasise that this documentary is still a work concerning people, the documentary shifts their focus to a quiet Christmas some of the players they spend. In doing so, we get to visit the homes of several Arsenal players, from a quiet one spent between Chromatiks and longtime friends Britt Beckham and Gam Michaels, to that of Benoit-Richard Ukaleq's adventures in St. John's nightclub. 'It's not the easiest times for all those out there, so I guess this is my way of coping around it...somewhat,' Ukaleq says in a glee, before entering a VIP chamber of local nightclub, Barry's Bonds.

Unfortunately, spending a cozy christmas in what's been a fairly warm winter out in Newfoundland does not improve their fortunes, as Arsenal draws 2-2 to Trojana in front of yet another Boxing Day sellout crowd who still sells out. Ukaleq, normally bulletproof in there, struggles to find his pace against Zeta Rekan Aaron Milic, and eventually allows a ninety-first minute goal that shaves two goals off Arsenal's hopeful total tally. Rob Alexander kicks the water bucket next to him, and the next thing we hear about him was the RQFA's notification to the club about a 5000 pound fine.

With the match sequences increasingly becoming boring and depressing, the camera decides to talk a bit about the club legend Hazel van Robben, whose life in retirement has involved taking greater interest in her own marijuana business that's contracted to Cannabiscorp, Quebecois state company that is also the Sporting Multiverse's largest producer of medical and recreational marijuana at this point in time. 'It is depressing to watch these guys, especially after watching them improve so much last year.' sighs van Robben in her office located in Cathair, where she resides part of the year. 'Still, I have faith in this club.'

Sometimes, life is not fair and there are some rules that we just live by it. Like with Vanorians and Raynor City United or Teusssen Stelburg with the Teus, it is safe to assume that the most of the nation's sports fans live in the world where their allegiances would be divided between Koreana and CSKA. Even as the others stumbled, Koreana's form did not falter, and the next thing you remembered, Montreal Koreana was back on top of the ladder with a comfortable distance them and Olympique de Rimouski are holding over Perce Town and the rest of the pretenders.

This does not mean Olympique de Rimouski's going to flinch from their final stretch either. Samara Kaniatarii's side are absolutely worthy of the long elusive title that hasn't come their way in nineteen years (they last won it in 2027-28), even after a particularly difficult five game stretch where they were shut out twice in disappointing losses to Kingston FC and Mipojoseon. But this squad's experience truly shows in how quickly they were able to recover either way, with Min Dong-Jin still scoring at very high pace, Saunlilun Buthoningun tuning the defence every now and then, and Ray Ashoona serving as their spiritual father in the middle.

Right behind them are Perce, CSKA and Mipojoseon, who will all be battling for the two spots remaining in the last two IFCF spots, unless a team outside of IFCF zone wins the Coupe Du Roi by the year's end. After a very strong first half, the youth of Perce Town have slightly faltered, but the side knows their season is far from over and that they could use good results from this season to fuel further financial investments into the club. CSKA Quebec, surviving through a wild circus ride of season on Chen's first season with the club, have managed to survive three quarters of the season and are still around. The most notesworthy team among the top half, Mipojoseon, is happily on the fifth place as they continue to push for a IFCF berth in their first season back with the Q-League.

Among the rest, Haligonian's starting to really come around, as the team's patience finally started to pay off and they are now well clear from the relegation zone, while all the hope St. John's Arsenal may have had in a likewise turnaround may need to happen sooner than later, else they risk the club's first ever relegation from top tier of Quebecois professional football in their 158 year history.

Now, as we reach the final sixteen teams, there are increasingly less upsets to note. Still, one can only be amazed with the reactions of Heart of Saguenay fans after their stunning upset at the hands of relegation favourites RC Hanyang at the Apple Bowl of all places, in what's the usual underwhelming season for them. On the other side of Saguenay, the Fighting Irish women also did their part in providing a stunning victory, with the QIS women's MVP Camille Diop-Vaillancourt scoring a hat trick to send the Championship side back to London. Otherwise, life's back to normal, with CSKA, Olympique and Koreana all surviving easy challenges.

This is where hateful eight goes down to the final four, and boy, do we get some interesting results. Even as their season in the Championship is heading towards a likely failure, Montreal Impact continues to be a force to be reckoned with on cup competition, and here they knock out Lakeshore on a home win. At the same time, Levis Athletic is another darkhorse whose struggle to separate themselves from the pro-rel playoff ends up helping them in the long run, as they too have little trouble beating the Cinderella story of this year’s cup, in Saguenay Fighting Irish women’s team. Otherwise, the life looks fairly standard- CSKA Quebec had no problem with the second major Quebec City club in RC Hanyang, while Olympique de Rimouski delivers a statement performance at The Samseongoloondongjang to tell the world that their quest for a domestic double is still underway. For the semifinals, we have Olympique heading to Levis Athletic, while CSKA welcomes the Impact.

Well... what everybody had feared come to be true.

Chaos continues after Arsenal draw, is relegated for the first time in history

ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland -- Historic football team St. John's Arsenal was relegated to the Quebecois Championship for the first time in its 158 years history this Saturday, sparking a series of riots between police and fans that has been ongoing outside the Blue Point Stadium for past twenty-four hours.

The relegation, which ends the Arsenal's reign as the only Quebecois side to have stayed on the top tier of professional football in Quebec and Shingoryeo in its 158 years of history, came after Arsenal's home draw to 2-2 against fourth-place Perce Town yesterday afternoon. Cristian Victorino scored both goals, while Jean-Henri Lavisse and Eli Mathers scored a piece, latter with a tying goal in the 77nd minute.

As the match reached the extra minutes, the violence broke out from all four stands of the stadium. Tens of thousands of fans, in the middle of a sellout crowd, pelted players with tomatoes, lemons and plastic bottles, while the security responded with harsh measures to prevent the fans from hopping the security barriers.

While the fans were doused and battered with water, the players were lying on the pitch, all of them in tears, including the team star Benoit-Richard Ukaleq and team captain Gerard Rees-Jones.

Elsewhere, the violence only accelerated as the mayhem quickly transferred into the fans surrounding the stadium on the town squares. The Royal Quebecois Police said that 281 people were injured and 79 detained as of this morning, with figures likely to increase.

This incident, widely viewed by the people as the worst football incident on Quebecois soil since the Referee Riots of World Cup 69 qualifying that happened in Quebec City thirty eight years ago, has threatened the security measures and the future of the organisation's governing body. It is expected that the entire Governing Board of St. John's Arsenal, including the team's president, to resign at the end of this evening...

The life on the penthouse is as predictable as it has gotten for some, while for the others the climb to it has been the one to watch. Olympique wins both matches, a 7-4 drubbing of Daedonggang 3.26 and second straight win over the Koreana side that finds ties the top two fo the standings. Montreal Koreana wins a close one on their trip up north and while their loss to Olympique may have prevented them from clinching the Q-League trophy in front of the home crowd, they still have favourable odds ahead of their trip to Sherbrooke. The winner of this week, however, had to be CSKA Quebec, as they won comfortably against Swanguard and Zenit, before the home showdown against the already-relegated side. While they are likely eliminated from the title contention, the Capitoliens know they still need to play their best and walk off with three crucial points for what is often rumoured by many to be the last home match for their team captain, Tessa Maitfield. The Schottian, who was the league MVP just previous season, is rumoured to prefer a move to a Southwestern team in the hopes to be nearer to Frank Lundrigan of TSV Marzig.

At the same time, Eloise Kweon's Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa is hosting the Koreana side ahead of a key showdown that will decide whether the Green Warriors will land the coveted IFCF spot for the preliminary stages of international football this summer. Kweon, another major prospect who is expected to head abroad, hopes her final match with Sherbrooke will end in a positive note.

Otherwise, the life is back to being the same for most of the 'rest of the bunch'. Perce Town and Kingston FC, the early-season favourites who have taken the league by storm, have gradually run out of form and sit decently on seventh and eighth spots, while Unama'kik-Inverness 1877 has far too many questions to ask this offseason after a roller coaster of the season that has caused many UI1877 fans to complain. Heart of Saguenay and Swanguard Athletic, on the other hand, are two teams that are happy to be in comfortable distance from the relegation zone that many had feared they would fall into it. Instead they find themselves back on their perpetual limbo and walk off happy...for now.

As for the four teams still figuring out, I have little to say for them. Good luck and may the best win!

Glory, Glory, Koreana!

And the Q-League season is once again over with Montreal Koreana gently lifting the Arlenia Trophy for the twenty-eighth time in their history, after parking the bus in Sherbrooke, but the major questions were over what was going to happen to the other three IFCF spots and the relegation zone. CSKA Quebec and St. John’s Arsenal were playing each other, former with a hopeful IFCF spot in mind and latter an attempt to at least wrap up the lost season well. As it turned out, the Capitoliens did not need much more help beyond a draw, as Trojana beat Mipojoseon in Habpo and Koreana’s draw to Sherbrooke had ended up working out in their favour.

The other big match of the week between Olympique and Haligonian ended up being a mini-tragedy for the home side, as Augustin Vladimirescu, one of the sole lights in what was a tale of two seasons this year, scored on the eighty-ninth minute penalty kick to crush Olympique’s title dreams, here at the Steelyard. It was an unfortunate sight, as the Olympique rushed for six extra minutes to score an additional goal with no success, and the final whistle had meant that the fans and the players alike were left crying their eyes out for what had fallen apart so quickly in a matter of seven minutes.

Meanwhile, on the other side of Saguenay province, the similar tragedy emerged but for the away side, as Daedonnggang 3.26’s efforts to stay out of the relegation zone had ended in a failure when they failed to score the much-needed second goal, and will find themselves without their Tequiloa goalkeeper Niba Punu ahead of the promotion-relegation playoffs, to be held next weekend…

Finally, congratulations to Trojana Condommakers FC for their sixth place finish, in showing their defensive prowess and proving to their captain, Emil Bohler, that the wait was worth it. Bravo.

Coupe Du Roi - Final
Played at The Reneegrad, Reneegrad, Capitale-Nationale
Olympique de Rimouski (QL) 1–0 CSKA Quebec (QL)

Olympique may have been left heartbroken last week, but they won't be left empty-handed, as the energetic Olympique side entered The Reneegrad with absolute determination. It was a back and forth first half, with neither sides doing much to break through each other's defences. Eventually, it would come down to the depth, as Olympique would replace Johanes Mandi on the seventy-seventh minute with Min Dong-Jin, with the thirty-two year old entering what's going to be his final match with the Olympique after thirteen years, 341 starts and 176 goals for the boys in the Steelyard.

And the rest is history, as he finds the hole in CSKA's armour and exposes all of Sebastien Petit, Sinead Nappaluk and William Bousquet in splendid display of dribbles and scores. Ten minutes later, he hoists the trophy, before announcing that he will be heading abroad.

OOC: Many thanks to Txakhaxi for his excellent work with logos and kits!

For this season, I will be recapping the season in a slightly different way. Each part will consist of one half, an RP consisting of POV from somebody within or with stakes to a club of my choice, which will be followed by the other half, consisting of a recap of results and standings. Since I usually stay out of MD-by-MD roleplays, I have decided that this would be a good way to keep the interest level rolling for Q-League. Hope you enjoy!

Q-LEAGUE 2048-49 SEASON - PART I


Image

Kits: Home / Away / Third/GK

First Stretch: Kingston FC

Tune: Californian Soil, London Grammar


It was time for the Press Conference. The messy offseason that saw plenty of changes for the Kingston FC was finally over, and the team's manager, Alex Cartwright, was ready to head into the preseason conference after spending the past week trying to figure out the right words to say it. The Kingston FC legend has managed the team for well over a decade after his return from Yuezhou national team post-WC79, but the frustration of the club's state had made his face look as if the seventy-year old man's really seven-hundred year old. It was scheduled for the day before the KFC's flight to Inverness ahead of their season opener in three days' time, and he knew it was going to be particularly challenging if he didn't have the right answers.

Perhaps the best way to answer it, he thought, is to just push a clear agenda and set a low bar. In all fairness to him, that was probably the right direction to take- the financial state of the club has not improved one bit since he took the reigns of the club, and the front office, while always finding a right player or two to build around, always knew well to sell him off. For all the ability the manager held, this was not a healthy sign, and the Llamaean started to wonder when, and not if, he should retire.

'Here we go,' Alex said to his secretary, Clemence. 'Let's just get this over and done with.' Then he entered the press room, with a solitary chair to indicate that he, without a player or front office figure, was going to handle the mission on his own.

The room was quiet, with about a couple dozens of local journalists present, even though a couple from Quebecois Broadcasting Corporation (QBC), Quebec City's French-language national newspaper Le Mazepa, and other football magazines, were present as well. He knew this was a good sign.

'So, uh, thank you for coming out once again, everybody.' He cleared his throat, before starting to set up for what he had read out. 'Unfortunately, this media conference is going to be kept short, due to a lot of concerns you and I both have over the state of the club.' He stopped for a second and looked around, only to hear back with nothing. 'But, as always, me, members of the coaching staff, the front office, and the players, will be available to answer your enquiries throughout the course of the year, so please bear with us just for tonight.'

This, in turn, was followed by a couple of flashes taken by younger journalists, whose relative inexperience may have contributed them in making a mistake. Trying to not make much out of a minor annoyance, Alex Cartwright started to read out his statement:

'Thank you once again, to fans of Kingston Football Club, for once again looking forward to another professional football season in the heart of Southwest. We are aware that this has not been the easiest of times for the members of the club, especially as we, the Reds, have consistently struggled and lost our key players to the financial issues that have long challenged the club. It is never easy for our fans, who look forward to the heroics of those who wear the Red and White, to see this happen over and over again.

'But what I, as a longtime footballer and manager of over sixty years, can say from my decades of experience, is that this too shall pass. The success runs in cycles and we are just in middle of that rebounding period, ready to come back with stronger period. The club's youth setups, with the finest talent from Ontario, Frontenac, and other provinces, continue to perform well, and our products have shone all across the Multiverse, from Vilita to Valanora, and will continue to do so as they evolve beyond the academy settings.

'And we cannot ignore our senior players. They, long bolstered by competitive signings and encouragements, know that complacency is the closest way towards lethargy and death, and that they would have to fight all they can. And it is up to me, as manager, to deliver them the power. We need the night, and we need this strength. So, without further ado, I would ask you all to be patient, bring me all your friends, and get ready for yet another season. Thank you.'

Otherwise, welcome back to a good ole Q-League season, where the two metropoles consistently struggle to make a presence outside of their crown jewels and the sport's regional balance is as spread out as ever. Of course, this doesn't really take account into the fact that the league is, for the first time in five decades, without a team from the northernmost province of Nunavut, but not a lot of people have noticed much of their absence aside from the northernly fans, who continue to fill the Quebecois Championship Stands with relative ease.

At the top of the table, we have a slight variation from the usual self, as the usual favourites in Haligonian and CSKA Quebec have found themselves in deep trouble early on. The Halifax based side, widely nicknamed as 'the Schottians', was struck hard by the tragic passic of Twicetagrien international Agustin Vladimirescu, and while his loss, just one of many Halifax-based side has suffered following a mid-table finish after barely surviving relegation for most of it, was not shown in the scoring boards, it is clear that the team's morale were particularly suffering. Les Capitoliens, in the meanwhile, has seen a total malaise of different sorts, as Chen Huikang's side has seen a plethora of media troubles strike them in every direction, from the flamboyant Tequiloa forward Cristian Duque, the current Smurfists International General Secretary Sebastien Petit, or the hard-nosed captain Baek Cha-Ryong who's had loads of trouble filling the shoes of their recently-departed captain, Tessa Maitfield (soon to be adding Lundrigan with a hyphen), to Banija. It is an excellent squad with their own fire, but not enough to extinguish their opponents' counterattacks, a marked reversal of the usual CSKA brand of football.

As for the rest of the favourites or unexpected risers, it's a fairly exciting time of football. Being the perennial contenders, Montreal Koreana always had their eye for the throne, and their retaining of the vast majority of the cast from the last season has certainly paid off with not only a solid group stage performance in the IFCF Champions' Cup, but also a solid start to the season where they, by staying consistent and safe to their true selves, stand on top of the ladder. Of course, Hwang Joon-Ho knows it's going to be a long run, and that he cannot stay too confident about it all, especially with the way their talisman Valladar Alexandre has started seeing the horizon before his eyes.

The same, in the meanwhile, can be said for Olympique de Rimouski, whose time in the post-Miller era has seen some wonderful results. They have always had some edge and grit to their game, which did not always work in the Q-League where terrain and travel make everything so unpredictable but highly potent in the Coupe de la Reine, and landing Kohnheadian superstar Suzanna Barter from Kingston FC has clearly added wings to their form. Not only has she added an additional glitter to the glow produced by the Steelyard and its unstoppable defence, but the team has certainly looked a lot stronger and durable because of it.

Long predicted to fall back into the mid-tier by the pundits on their preseason predictions, Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa have so far continued to prove many wrong by locking themselves with 19 points, just two off the top of the table. Despite their starting goalkeeper, Wang Jielian of Yuezhou, struggling a lot early on, the team has made up for it with extra firework from the trio of forwards in captain Hamidou Diressa, young Yuezhou signing Jia Duguan, and veteran Yvette Duclos, and Cedric Rohrmayer's promises on the leftback certainly has left people pleased. The same level of excitement, in the meanwhile, can be found with Mipojoseon and Zenit Attawapiskat, as both sides have carried themselves to the comfortable top 6 placing with the opposing brand of football- Zenit with high-octane, fast-paced football relying flanking from the sides, and Mipojoseon employing any and every form of bedroom football. So far, one side's content but wanting more, while the others are just happy to be here. The difference between the long-awaiting Zenit and patient a Mipojoseon side on rise.

Right behind them, too, sees a couple of content teams as Heart of Saguenay, unexpectedly aided by Evander Bush-Sprenger on his one season return, sees Benoit Djaozandry lead the league scoring with 11 goals. Whether their form, given their relatively poorer depth, remains to be seen, but the 'Valladars' in Chicoutimi can at least some form of relief for now. Cornwall Clippers quietly drew a lot of news offseason by signing goalkeeper Stu Harding (Tikariot), Midfielders Gilamu Kuartango (Astograth) and Portia Raoul (Chromatika), and wingers Oikilde Fusul (Tioguldos with a Quebecois permanent residency) and Raheem Donovan (Quebec), and the team's youthful outlook has paid off with a 10th-place so far into the season, much better than what the front office had expected earlier. Finally, Lakeshore was the rumoured favourite for relegation this season besides Swanguard Athletic, but the other Kingston side has proved everybody wrong, with good performances from midfielders Penelope Battle (Sylestone) and Ysabelle Ortiz (Cassadaigua), and Chromatik winger Nicholai Isteben, not to mention their goalkeeper Herménégilde Trézéguet, who is on a resurgent form after agreeing to part with Heart of Saguenay two years ago.

As for the rest, the solace is that there are 38 games in this season and not 10. UI1877 and Kingston FC can relieve at the fact that they have seen their resurgent forms before, but losing their best players during the offseason to Myana and Olympique did the sides no favour, and the fans start worrying about losing even more. For Perce Town, who sit right behind them, one may wish to argue this is a down year after a good season they had the year prior, but is it what Daniel Galbraith, a living legend back in his native Tumbra, would want to hear? I think not...But the past history, at least, would suggest that there is lot more to be played out in the season for the lads and lasses of the Fisheries, and thus they remain patient. As for those right after, the same level of confidence is not yet expected.

Q-LEAGUE 2048-49 SEASON - PART II


Image

Kits: Home / Away / Third/GK

Second Stretch: CSKA Quebec

Tune: MOONBAE-DONG, Epik High


Prime Minister, Arsene Pineau Kim, was taking the news behind CSKA Quebec's latest loss, a 1-2 home defeat against lowly PLI Islanders, with patience. Perhaps this was partly influenced by his thinking that he, a public individual with particular stake in the decision making of any political level, couldn't, shouldn't, and weren't going to interfere with matters involving his hometown club. He was not going to deal with the problems that a certain previous Prime Minister had caused twenty years ago, got himself jailed, and eventually brought the dozen year long Quebecois withdrawal from international football on the monarchical orders. That problem was already solved when his wife had resigned from CSKA Quebec's Board of Governors before he ran for Parliament at Golden Mile, a prosperous riding in the heart of Montreal, and he knew he could at least avoid that department of mistakes.

Of course, this did not mean that he was able to emotionally sever himself from the club, especially since Arsene held particular sentimental values to them. Him and Meagan Casavant had known each other since their lycee days at Lycee-Alexandre-IV. Arsene was a well-built, bookworm Seconde (rough equivalent- grade 10), Meagan a slim, chic Terminale (rough equivalent- grade 12) and preparing for her Baccalaureat Quebecois.

In many ways, their age gap was only outdone by how different they were. The son of St. Croix history and literature professors was seeking every form of enjoyment, the older woman well out and above the game at the time. He was two immigrants' son who always spent summers accompanying his parents abroad, she a happy-go-camper, whose maternal family happens to be of the aristocratic Arbuthnot house (and au contraire to the origins of the surname, were French-speaking ones), on the rural settings few hours outside of Quebec City. Back then, they had brief flings and were really drawn, but nothing sure beyond conditional yes's were coming out.

Twelve years had passed between her departure to California City, his move to Kingston, and their fifty-seventh rendez-vous, a first since their fallout at the end of that year. Eleven partners - seven for Arsene, four for Meagan - and many more one night stands. Changed addresses, death of each a parent, a couple of life-altering exchanges and internships. Professional lives then followed- he first to Masters and then a half-completed PhD, her an administrative pathway into CSKA, first at basketball division before being promoted to main headquarters. Not wonder it was even more amazing that Arsene, by then a city councillor eventually preparing for his successful election into being the Mayor of Montreal, was able to turn around and see them brought back by the breeze of fate and mystery, in the Press Box over a rainy, November saturday afternoon match...

'Papa, maybe it wasn't the best idea to bring you to the CSKA match after all.' Arsene's thought balloons were popped by his son François, who said to his father in a carefully polished standardised Korean that he was perhaps at fault for deciding to bring his girlfriend to his parents to the game.

'Gah, don't bother about it,' responded Arsene, as he lit another cigarette. 'It's nobody's fault the club is run and played by those not fitting the standards expected by those of the Ministry of Defence. It's tragic, but not unfixable, and I'm sure Soo-Yeong didn't mind that one bit.' François, the third of three children between Meagan and Arsene, was eighteen, and for most part, spared from the decades of dry spells that had cursed the club for much of his childhood. The thirty years of curse, which the Prime Minister was born only one third into, carried a perennial theme of shortcomings and pain that followed with them for much of his youthful days, and had only ended the year his father, Dr. Kim Sang-Doh, Professor of Comparative Literature and History at Universite St. Croix, passed away when he was twenty one.

So Arsene and Meagan (though she was more RC Hanyang fan while a teenager) certainly spent no less money on the games to their children, and made sure they weren't going to fall to Big Bad Devils of Montreal Koreana. So far, the experiment seems to have worked nicely, with two of their children season ticket holders and the third one, the one who's chatting with Arsene, likely sharing the tickets with either Camille or Gustave. 'At least the ticket prices will be lower, so maybe we'll get to watch the games...amirite?' the son carefully raised a selfish but realistic suggestion. 'Not that Soo-Yeong and I were going anywhere outside for school anyway.'

'Probably, just don't make an embarrassment whenever you are on the stands,' Arsene raised his voice to suggest caution rather than encouragement. 'Don't make your mother having to deal with enough pains. She's already gone through plenty with you back in Seconde and Premiere. Behave like a Terminale.'

'Alright, I'll keep the kinkiness at home.' François nodded along. 'At least there's plenty to watch from Arnald Gal, Carlos Duque, and Curtis Saturday scoring on and off the field. Still don't know how much starpower they have there, but they just can't put it together, almost as if god says 'maybe not so fast son', I guess.'

'And with that,' the Prime Minister chuckled, 'Welcome to seventeen year old me, son. Welcome.'

As the season continues and we are nearing the Christmas break, we have a new winner, as Mipojoseon's away victory over Koreana ended up a difference-maker so far between them. Mipojoseon won the away leg 2-1 at The Samseongoloondongjang, and stand exactly three points over the Koreana squad that has been unstoppable in many ways. While many have not expected this big of progress made by the squad, one cannot deny anymore that Mipojoseon's here for real, and that their 2038-39 defensive four is the toughest nut to crack, if that's even possible on a full-season form. That does leave Koreana, Zenit Attawapiskat and Kingston FC right behind the Twin Cities side, as life just goes along as usual in Montreal and the other two saw explosive second-quarter forms to find themselves third and fourth.

Among the rest, there remains a lot of close races, though a couple of notesworthy teams are out there. Northandryun Rovers continue to play well, with preseason signings Hand Sanitiser (Sylestone) and Rachel Thompson (Cassadaigua) adding further fuel to an extremely stacked team that has oddly been serving short of IFCF spots over last few years. Olympique de Rimouski had a slight downturn in form where their scoring struggles have reflected with a couple of frustrating losses, even though a pair of major wins over Heart of Saguenay and Montreal Koreana were crucial in keeping them within it. But everybody knows it's either a do-or-die year on the Steelyard, so it's safe to assume Samara Kaniatarii will be making a couple of key changes before the matches resume for the Boxing Day. Daedonggang 3.26, as of right now, is the lucky team of the season, where their two gambles- to give continued faith to 23-year old Niba Punu (Tequilo) as their starting goalkeeper when they could have gotten more media-acceptable options in loaning a prospect goalkeeper form bigger clubs, and to throw 17 year old William Guendouzi into the live flames- have worked out brilliantly.

As for the rest of the pack, major questions are being asked. Lakeshore, after a strong ten game form, has gone 1-3-5 (W-D-L) in their last nine matches, to find themselves on the sixteenth spot, while Sarnia 4.25, Levis Athletic and PLI Islanders trail behind them in a fairly predictable pit. Oh, also, Swanguard Athletic. They can't score, they can't defend, and they already stand eleven points away from safety....who would have thought letting go of Zinaida Woodcarver was a good idea? Certainly not me.

Q-LEAGUE 2048-49 SEASON - PART III


Coupe de la Reine - Quarterfinals

Baie-Verte (CL) 1–3 Olympique de Rimouski (QL)
Lakeshore (QL)
3–1 CSKA Quebec (QL)
Winnipeg United (CL) 3–5 Perce Town (QL)
Mipojoseon (QL)
2–2 Sarnia 4.25 (QL) (3–2 AET)

Olympique de Rimouski, whose mastery of cup competitions is ever so known on the domestic circuit (the generally poor performance by Quebecois entrants on the CWC aside), had little trouble in Baie-Verte, as they score three seventeen goals in first half to bring yet another semifinals berth. At the same time, Lakeshore once again makes up for their risky domestic form by eliminating CSKA Quebec in OVO Field, with Chen Huikang's side returning home to a barrage of questions being asked about the team's inability to stay focused all season long. As for the other two matches, the life went along as usual, with Daniel Galbraith scoring a hat trick for Perce Town to get past Winnipeg United, while Mipojoseon pulls a close one at home over Sarnia. For the semifinals, we see Perce Town heading to Kingston, while Mipojoseon welcomes Olympique at home, in what could be a match of many implications for either team.






It was a long evening match for everybody. Yi Seung-Hyeon was not really a fan of the footballing tradition in scheduling a match on the boxing day, but has since come to appreciate a bit more behind the impact Christmas spirit offered for his club. The first half of the hour went fairly eventless, with a goal from each side to keep it a fairly stale, 1-1, game. The manager of seventeen years knew this was a good sign for now, especially with the new year approaching. Perce Town, as usual, has a particular tendency to perform much better on the second half of the season, and he knew that even a draw was going to be enough for now, even if the fact that their opposition was lowly Sarnia 4.25 still stung on him. A game like this isn't be all end all, as long as they found ways to win on the crucial matchups. The last few years has seen the very opposite, where Town knew how to win enough games but never enough against key opponents, and that fact did not comfort him one bit.

It was a freezing afternoon at Parc des Patriotes, located on the western tip of the city's port that was built on a large, circular bay. The relative location of the port worked both ways for those visiting it, regardless of whom. The best part was that since there's really only one way to enter and leave the stadium, with woods surrounding it, they were always going to have some form of home advantage. Considering their small-market team status, it was every bit useful to utilise the advantage. On the other hand, the traffic jam on the gamedays were expected, not exceptional, and those bringing an automobile were out of luck.

Usually the best way to deal with that is to park the car elsewhere and take a local bus (Number 91 or 505 from the train station works well, or 106/108 from relatively newer districts of the city), and hope for the best, which usually was a good idea for pre- or post-match meals on the Seoho Market just south of the hill. This was probably what the sellout crowd of 14,005 had in mind, as boxing day had meant that plenty were out and about in various commercial quarters the city had. Seung-Hyeon, a local himself, knew well enough about that, and by the eighty-first minute, he was already getting ready to think about what to say to the disappointed players on the locker room.

'We should switch to three on back, Brown's slowing down and it might not be a bad idea to try a call-up.' Pierre-Karl Varsteeg, the reserve team manager and his main assistant, reminded him that it's probably best to give young guys playing time. In a first-half conversation the two men had shared with each other, it was clear that they were going to substitute two around eightieth minute if they could hold onto either a lead or a draw- it was Boxing Day anyway- and they had two clear picks, as they looked at Paul Steinhaisl, a loanee from FC Felsenkirchen 1878 who has played twelve league and cup games with solid comments, and Julie Hardaker, who were already warming up under PK's orders. If the double substitution, replacing the Xannerian and the team's Tumbran captain, Daniel Galbraith, occurs, it was going to be the first professional match for the latter, who has made further progress with her training and earned praise from the academy coaches. It has taken a bit longer than expected for her to come up, especially as she had to work around different Quebecois curriculums, but the adjustment's now complete and all looked set and ready.

'Give them double.' Seung-Hyeon nodded, indicating that what they had planned for was going to go ahead per schedule. 'We move Korniloff-Kouyate to centre, and then keep Hardaker on the wing.'

Starting to walk his way towards the prospects, he had hoped neither were going to make this choice a mistake. 'Julie and Paul, get ready.’ He patted both of them on the shoulder, not looking at either of them. Long years of management, and he still wasn’t good with eye contact. ‘17 for 10, 20 for 3. Scheme same, but Kou and Julie swap the spots. Overlap the space, and keep passing the ball until they lose their attention.'

‘Bien,’ was all they said, as the substitution sign was raised and they swapped places with the veterans.

Montreal Koreana are back...again. They certainly had a rockier first half than usual, sure, but their timely elimination from the group stage may have worked out well for the squad, as they won seven out of their next ten games to climb back to the top. They were quietly joined by Kingston FC, one side that has only gotten better over the course of the season, and Mipojoseon who are really benefitting from a good year by their ace Lyall Murphy and the Banijan-Quebecois stud, Abel Wesoloski-Okafor. Those three, all with playing style different from each other, have certainly brought fire to l'Instagramme pages across the country, and should be fun to look out for.

Right behind, we have the same three teams we had talked about earlier- high-powered Zenit, well-balanced Rovers, and....the CSKA team that just can't seem to catch break over the injuries sustained on the backfield, even as they have slowly brought themselves back from the volcano of frustrations back in 2048. Perce Town, who unexpectedly struggled for most of 2048 as well, are back on the race as well, as Yi Seung-Hyeon's side seems to have found themselves rolling once again with a good mix of domestic and foreign prospects, something that this small-town team can be proud of. The same, however, cannot be said of Sherbrooke Noksaekjeonsa, as the first-stretch high turned into a subsequent half-season's worth of nightmares, and Pierre-Ian Noh cannot help but to wonder if this may be his final season on the realm. The Matchday 28 defeat to lowly Swanguard Athletic, who still misses Zinaida Woodcarver and several others they had let go of, done in the score 2-3, is icing on the cake.

In the Quebecois Championship, recently relegated St. John's Arsenal and Iqaluit Red Army are setting the pace. Both teams, with their heavy orientation towards constant rebuilding in the new era, are commonly agreed by everybody to be on a different level. Each have a couple of future national-teamers lined up, and will do their best to keep them when or if they are back on the Q-League. Surprisingly, Ah-Seop Coupland's Montreal City are fourth, with the Citoyens' years of redefining their club identity working out after languishing in the Championship and League One. Their goaltender, a certain 17-year old Julien Furman, is being given serious looks by the Q-League or even international sides, and they have enough prospects to at least warrantee a future promotion. Of course, nothing's guaranteed in terms of promotion yet, and in the Quebecois Championship structure where the eight teams vie for 2.5 spots into the promotion, nobody barring a local St. John's Arsenal fan is gonna be confident about it.

Q-LEAGUE 2048-49 SEASON - PART IV


Coupe de la Reine - Quarterfinals
Held at The Reneegrad, Capitale-Nationale
Lakeshore (CL) 1–5 Perce Town (QL)
Mipojoseon (CL)
3–1 Olympique de Rimouski (QL)

After being able to brush off fear over being dragged back into the relegation zone, Lakeshore have finally run out of the gas on a saturday afternoon, and Perce Town's visit over them only added to it. While Daniel Galbraith was given rest, it was a duo of Kim Seung-Hwan and Anna Korniloff-Kouyate who scored two an each, more than enough to crush Lakeshore in front of full crowd at The Reneegrad. The narrative was different on the evening game, as Mipojoseon had a slightly closer, more tightly contested matchup against the feisty Olympique side they had long dreaded to face. If you were to ask any of the fans out in the Twin Cities, they would have told you that they'd have rather been in the other semifinals. Not that it matters much in the end, however, as a couple of split-second decisions have separated the two in the match, and Mipojoseon's potential for a domestic double continues into the last six weeks of the season...

Fourth Stretch: Mipojoseon

Tune: Closure by Sarcastic Sounds, Birdy, Mishaal


Asher Lundrigan was quietly becoming a known name in Mipojoseon’s inner circles. Sure, the Twin Cities club has been on the rise for the past half-decade to a decade, and there was no doubt in the fans’ eyes that they were getting better. Since his arrival in Coxwell Park, where his wife, a famous musician named Eileen de Ramaut, grew up and her family still lived, however, their form seemed to have taken off to another level, and have comfortably established their placing on a IFCF berth, with outside possibility towards the Q-League title.

Fitting his rise to the centre of the Quebecois literary world, most recently with the release of his novel, The Hypereideiad, the former journalist found himself quickly earning the favour of the Mipojoseon fanbase, and a couple of transactions that followed gave him a small but comfortable box at the top of the Two Rivers Stadium.

It was a small but comfortable spot, where he would sometimes attend games, but usually rent it out to a friend or more commonly, his wife’s family, with practically no cost. For most of the matches, there would be a Lauzon or two present with their friends, all wearing the Mipojoseon jerseys, and guests from other cities were usually welcomed. The club’s excellent form has brought an extra sense of buoyancy to the local sports fans out in southwestern Acadie, especially as Saint John Green Sox continued to suck, and Twin Cities Steelers alternated between solid playoff runs and 7-9 seasons. With the excitement that the club’s best years have yet to happen, it is safe to say that this young family was going to be hearing a lot more good news as the numbers go from two to three and to eventually five.

‘Watch out, watch out,’ Asher followed along, as his daughter Claire, now two years of age, quickly ran to the glass wall facing the stands once they entered the arena. Wearing shorts and a tiny home jersey with v-shaped grey rows, and loose locks of brown hair forming around her head, Claire didn’t look much like her mother yet. Of course, the fact that Claire was only two years old and not twelve had much to do with it, but the lack of resemblance to Eileen made her father somewhat disappointed.

‘Do you want the ball?’ Asher asked his daughter, as he dropped his bag by the couch, trying to see if he still had the tiny football from his bag. The ball, which he found from the main house back in Coxwell, was old and with just enough air to keep it bouncing. Its small size, almost nearing that of a handball, however, had meant that it was serviceable enough when he or Eileen were playing with their daughter, who was happy enough to play with her parents or aunt or uncles or the property when they had time.
‘Alright, will do..’ Asher picked up the ball, his huge hands covering the entire ball and maybe one more circle around it. ‘Now, letme roll it slowly, so you can catch it…’ It was then that he was disrupted by his brother-in-law, Donovan de Ramaut. The twenty-six year old, who was a consultant for a major firm’s local branch, and a patron of Habpo Art Gallery, happened to be nearby and decided to visit Asher and his daughter, before they were going to have dinner with Eileen. ‘Oh, hello, Donny,’ Asher waved at the taller man. ‘You came just in time…didn’t expect you to come visit us while in the Stadium, but all’s good. Good to see you though.’

‘My pleasure, Ash.’ Donovan smiled, quickly rushing to Claire before giving the confused toddler a handshaker. ‘Uncle Donny’s happy to see you. Welcome to the Park.’ The consultant, who has started to look more and more like his father, was more than enough to have Claire run about. Forming herself in a low position, perfectly enough to play butterfly (hockey) or catcher (baseball) but too low for a football goalkeeper, she rolled around a couple of times. ‘Oh, right...you used to play catcher right.’

‘Yes, though I don’t know where she learned to do that…’ Asher reluctantly nodded, as he rolled the ball per the promise. And as he watched her catch it with relative ease, they realised that there’s that odd resemblance in form. ‘I didn’t teach her how to make a save, for sure.’ That part’s true, though everybody in the house knew Asher once formed the battery with Heo Myeong-Shin of Erskine Collegiate’s legendary teams over a decade ago. ‘So where are we heading later today? You know, we are probably driving back after dinner.’

‘Uh, lemme think. Probably somewhere in Pronovost, on or near the Sapa Market.’ He responded, as they looked ahead into the pitch, letting Claire handle the ball for most part. ‘Maybe we could think about that later, and let the young lady there,’ Donovan looked at Claire once again. To him, there was that odd resemblance to Eileen that he found comforting, but didn’t admit, mostly out of annoying his brother-in-law than anything. ‘Play a bit more. She could be the lucky symbol if we win, don’t we? Maybe it’s coming home after all.’

Of course, the pitch was empty, likely reserved for Saturday's match. Donovan was going to attend the match here, but neither Asher nor Eileen were going to- the wife was not really a sports watcher to start with, and Asher was still uncomfortable with the idea of being active in the society, whether it be newspaper headlines or interviews. The fact that they now had a daughter, who was running around all over the six houses and sixty-six rooms of the Coxwell Park property and making trouble, had only fuelled this as well. With March giving way to April, and the season’s final stretch coming closer, the Lundrigans had decided to make a minor business visit for Eileen a daily one, rather than overnight one as she had used to do a decade ago, and that was it.

This Q-League season is once again coming close to the finish, as the final day sees three possible candidates in line for the title between Montreal Koreana, Olympique de Rimouski and Mipojoseon. With Koreana and Mipojoseon not really letting go of their horses, and Rimouski having a phenomenal last stretch heading into the final match, they have already secured themselves an IFCF competition spot for some early-season football (author's note: all IFCF matches before group stage are held before Q-League season's early September start). That said, more is to be seen on how the top 3 will shake up in the end, as Mipojoseon and Olympique will be travelling to Sarnia and Prince Eric to settle the season with a win, while Montreal Koreana has a much tougher task facing UI1877, a team whose transfer rumours of Busogan scorer Artem Kohut have continued to unnerve the fans, at home.

Just under them, there remains a lot of battles to be settled, though one could say that they are not as massive or gigantic in implications in the end. Among them, the biggest battle will be between Zenit Attawapiskat and Kingston FC, as only one of the two will be seizing the control of the final spot. It's probably an odd, cruel turn of fates for many of us who would rather see both through instead of either Olympique or Koreana, but if there's any consolation to be made, neither of their managers will be demanded resignation. Of course, whether 70-year old Alex Cartwright retires or not after the final matchday is another story, but really, it's better than ending up the way of Marianne Godbut-Sweeney's Swanguard Athletic.

In the meanwhile, all three names for the automatic relegation has been finalised, after a dreadful second half for Trojana Condommakers FC and regression to their expected form by Sarnia 4.25 had them join the bed long warmed by lowly Swanguard. Now, the question lies over whether which of the three teams left, between PLI Islanders, Daedonggang 3.26 and Levis Athletic, will be awaiting the Championship play-off third placing team. All three of them will be playing before the homecrowd, but under vastly different circumstnces- Daedonggang will be facing the Northandryun Rovers team that have already secured sixth place, and may be deciding to give playing time to youth and reserve players, while PLI welcomes CSKA team that has recovered since their dismal first half, but not enough to bring themselves into the IFCF qualification race. Levis Athletic, in the meanwhile, will be welcoming Perce Town, whose disappointment in the season results were nicely compensated by the fact that they were more positives than negatives on the coaching staff's spreadsheet, even if the statistics don't indicate that. Can they pull off one more upset, avoid the promotion-relegation play-off, and may be able to persuade Savigliane international Zoe Barthelemy to stay? We'll see.
