The Tikariotian Premier League is the top level of the football league pyramid of Tikariot with 24 teams. It will be going into its 100th season and promises to be as gripping as ever, both in the contention for the title and the relegation battle that will once more see four teams make the grim march into the second division. The pyramid actually has seen some restructuring for this season, realigning divisions and now has a 20-team second division, a two-tiered third and fourth division with 14 teams each. The Tikariotian Football Federation also is instating a domestic cup competition for the first time in its history, which will also be open to non-league teams.

For the first 50 years the TPL had been a closed competition, with 20 teams at first, then adding four teams, three still are in the top flight. Since then there has been a steady 24-team set-up with four teams relegated and promoted each season and 47 teams have so far participated in the league, with only six having participated in each and every single season.

Paladon has been the most successful province so far with 20 championships, followed by the Emerald Coast with 14 and Dhaencunor with 13. In turn Dhaencunor has so far provided the most teams for the TPL with 10, then Paladon had seven, Acrassia and the Emerald Coast six, overall each province has had at least one team in the Tikariotian Premier League at one point.

Eleven out of fourteen provinces are currently participating in the TPL, six from Dhaencunor, five from Paladon, three from Acrassia, two each from Balkash, the Emerald Coast and Rhovannyr and finally one each from Frahaul, Khazagh, Saburnia, Taeria and Viljamark, leaving only the Bashperian Darklands, Soharr and Xark with a current representative.

The shortest distances between teams are:
Parakleion – Miruan 15 km (9.4 mi)
Port Tacassam – Ysgrann Bay 47 km (29.4 mi)
Port Tacassam – Anhedron 77 km (48.2 mi)
Tikariot City – Kyethas 92 km (57.5 mi)
Zhelmagor – Nagoush 93 km (58.2 mi)

The longest distances are:
Fort Viljan – Ysgrann Bay 2075 km (1297 mi)
Fort Viljan – Pyathora 2060 km (1287.5 mi)
Fort Viljan – Port Tacassam 2032 km (1270 mi)
Fort Viljan – Anhedron 1992 km (1245 mi)
Fort Viljan – Baraldhur 1874 km (1171.3 mi)

If you take Fort Viljan out of the equation, the biggest distance is between Ysgrann Bay and Miruan at 1514 km or 946.3 miles.

There is a couple of intense rivalries that have built throughout the years and decades and here are the fiercest:
Oriannor Mountaineers vs. Bul Khungur Miners
Parakleion Firebirds vs. Miruan City
Pyathora Mariners vs. Port Tacassam FC
Baraldhur AFC vs. Morannon Athletic
Tikariot City FC vs. Kyethas Rivermen
Guillarim Blades vs. Fort Viljan Northern FC
The Zhelmagor Society vs. Nagoush FC
Carathyr Emeralds vs. Fort Rhovanyon AFC

But enough with the cheap talk, here is the season prediction for the 100th season of the Tikariotian Premier League!

Image


Ancarea FC
Home colours: Light blue/dark blue stripes – black – dark blue
Away colours: White with light blue – light blue – light blue
Stadium: Old Church Road (46,000)
Nickname: Boars
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 3 (3 in a row)
Best position achieved: 17th
Position in all-time table: 42nd
Manager: Graeme Skulland (52)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Ahlgren – Ferrar, Norwood, McCulloch, Diggins – Svoboda, Alder, Drechsler, Bagshaw – Holasoff, Grieves.
Rest of Squad: Mitchell – Haas, Sworoff, Hardin – Delaney, Patterson, Adams – Hodges, Lang, Talbot.

Ancarea FC is one of the latest newcomers in the Tikariotian Premier League, with only three seasons under their belt so far. Having come in 18th, 19th and 17th clearly paints them into the relegation battle, also since they are going against far more experienced clubs in the process. Hailing from the south of Dhaencunor, not far from the borders with Paladon and the Emerald Coast, they are one of the smaller fishes in the Dhaencunorian pond with Kyethas, Bul Khungur and Veriasod dominating the provincial scene in recent years. Coach Graeme Skulland, who had led the Boars into the TPL, is a wily tactitian that puts the emphasis on a very balanced approach.

Season prediction: 21st

Anhedron Wanderers FC
Home colours: Red – orange - white
Away colours: White and orange – red - white
Stadium: Pineridge Park (44,000)
Nickname: Dragons
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 26 (9 in a row)
Best position achieved: 6th
Position in all-time table: 32nd
Manager: Raphael Secours (66)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Feron – Hillock-Smith, Thomas, Monks, Mhor – Ingham, Manning, Hackett, Baines – Morrisson, Mosnyk.
Rest of Squad: Owens – Alston, May, Wilkinson – Dawson, King, Hayes – Jenkins, Spencer, Reynolds.

After countless promotions and relegations the Dragons finally have gained a solid foothold in the TPL with nine seasons and counting. And they have not found themselves anywhere close to the relegation zone either, rather setting their sights towards the upper echelons of the table, giving the Balkashian city on the border to Acrassia something to look forward to. Coach Raphael Secours is one of the oldest in the league, but he is a very no-nonsense coach that will not tolerate any lapse of professionalism or discipline, so the Wanderers are one of the toughest units in the league.

Season prediction: 8th

ImageImage


Avanaroch White Wings FC
Home colours: White – white - white
Away colours: Black – white - black
Stadium: Paladon Park (78,000)
Nickname: Angels
Championships: 1 (Season 19)
Years in TPL: 69 (2 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 19th
Manager: Raymond Cartwright (32)
Starting XI: 4-5-1. Litman – Martins, Milko, Sullivan, Bassett – Glover, Rogers, Tomkins, Usher, Hartney – Corkhill.
Rest of Squad: Moran – Jepson, Marsh, Austin – Burke, Burns, Wright – Lockingwood, Edwards, Bailey.

The White Wings from Paladon's capital Avanaroch have had a bit of a rough spell of late, having seen extensive spells in the second division. The one-time champion just returned to the TPL two seasons ago and both times they barely scraped by and avoided relegation. With a young and exciting new team they are trying to once more gain a foothold in the top flight, also with new coach Raymond Cartwright, who is on his first coaching stint, hoping to benefit from his dynamic new ideas. Biggest hopeful is 20-year-old central midfielder Paul Tomkins, who has committed to at least one more season with the Angels despite several offers from the other Paladonian teams Parakleion and Miruan. Everything has to go right, though, for them to be able to stave off yet another drop.

Season prediction: 19th

Baraldhur AFC
Home colours: Yellow – night blue - yellow
Away colours: Dark blue – white – dark blue
Stadium: Creighton Park (61,000)
Nickname: Nightninjas
Championships: 7 (Seasons 82, 85, 88, 90, 91, 93, 95)
Years in TPL: 74 (42 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 15th
Manager: Shane Goldman (44)
Starting XI: 4-3-3. Chatelet – McIlroy, Rooney, Stephenson, Brogan – Vaughan, Dixon, Carlin – D. Hardcastle, Iribarren, Nighthorse.
Rest of Squad: Crossley – Bell, Gray, Palmer – McLennan, Wishart, Beckles – Lafayette, Sheppard, Lewis.

The team from the Balkashian capital is one of the most successful teams of the last 20 seasons, with seven championships. Despite a dip in the last few years including two 14th place finishes, Baraldhur is still considered one of the prime addresses in the TPL when it comes to challenges for the top three positions at least. Shane Goldman (coming from the Oriannor Mountaineers) is replacing Jeremiah Hopscott as coach for this season, with the club brass hoping for some renewed energy. This is aided by the acquisition of Jonathan Carlin from Oriannor, one of the most coveted young midfielders, and forward Morris Nighthorse, who has been tearing up the second division as member of the Toroyra FC during the past two seasons, facilitating Goldman's switch to a proactive 4-3-3 system.

Season prediction: 4th

Bul Khungur Miners FC
Home colours: Red with dark blue accents – dark blue - red
Away colours: White with dark blue accents – white – dark blue
Stadium: Temple of the Crow (26,000)
Nickname: Dwarves
Championships: 4 (Seasons 3, 43, 46, 57)
Years in TPL: 99 (99 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 2nd
Manager: Jeremiah Hopscott (49)
Starting XI: 4-3-3. Simonson – Hernandez, S. Hardcastle, Tasker, Holtby – Goulan, Marr, Jowlit – Lambert, Yarbrough, Conway.
Rest of Squad: Small – Coker, Sellers, Cousins – Bingham, Busk, Waller – Hammond, Baughan, Boyce

The Bul Khungur Miners, located in a remote area of Dhaencunor between Frahaul and Khazagh, is one of the historic top teams of the TPL, sitting in second place in the all-time table, less 100 points adrift of the Oriannor Mountaineers. Now their last championship is 42 years past and they have been steady tenants in the lower half of the league for almost ten years now, sparking some worries about them being the next of the original members biting the dust. In an attempt to reclaim lost territory, they signed coach Jeremiah Hopscott, who had just lost his job in Baraldhur due to sketchy results, so it is a bit of a gamble. However they are considered one of the league's most offensively gifted teams, sporting three members of the IFC1 tournament with Damian Hernandez, Nick Goulan and Michael Yarbrough, so the fans of this tight-knit team hope that the Temple of the Crow will once more become a stronghold.

Season prediction: 15th

Carathyr Emeralds FC
Home colours: Green/grey – grey - green
Away colours: White with green – white - green
Stadium: Jewel of the Coast (72,000)
Nickname: Merchants
Championships: 7 (Seasons 21, 50, 67, 68, 69, 73, 74)
Years in TPL: 99 (99 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 3rd
Manager: Jean-Francois Daoust (38)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Ferretti – Harvey, Buckley, Dixon, Naismith – Collins, Fletcher, Drury, Sloane – Nancarrow, Tomlinson.
Rest of Squad: Halamaki – Barnett, Summat, Bristow – Arnor, Vickery, Strevens – Jewell, Sherwood, Holloway.

Another one of the TPL's most decorated teams fallen on somewhat dire times are the Carathyr Emeralds, hailing from the capital of the Emerald Coast. Having held the trophy seven times, they are 23 years removed from the top five, with the last season being their worst, having finished 18th. With new coach Jean-Francois Daoust, pried away from newly promoted Morannon Athletic, they are trying to build up a new team around national striker Tristan Nancarrow with talent from within the province and their own academy. They are one of only six remaining original teams and desperate to hold on to that status in the light of a surprising big number of relative newcomers establishing themselves as top teams in the league.

Season prediction: 14th

ImageImage


Eivora Athletic FC
Home colours: Dark blue – red – dark blue
Away colours: White with dark blue – red - white
Stadium: Melnock House (43,000)
Nickname: Hawks
Championships: 7 (Seasons 61, 62, 64, 66, 79, 81, 87)
Years in TPL: 77 (77 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 9th
Manager: Carl Halvorson (57)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Andrews – Farnham, Sullivan, Chelmsford, Docherty – Hancock, Gaffigan, Malikyan, Salvara – Guinness, Berrymore.
Rest of Squad: Crossfield – Brown, Donohue, Malone – Dipper, Hughes, Allen – Todd, Dadomo, Sheckleford.

Eivora Athletic is one of two teams that made their way into the TPL during the first expansion period that has never been relegated (the Kyethas Rivermen being the other). They have been one of the most consistent top teams for decades now, having just passed the Fort Viljan Northern FC in the all-time table. The balanced tactic of Carl Halvorson has made him the longest-standing coach in the TPL right now, having been at the helm of the Eastern Emerald Coast outfit for 19 years now. One of their biggest strengths is a very good academy that in the past four years brought up goalie Kilian Andrews, midfield duo Michael Gaffigan and Clive Salvara as well as striker hopeful Angus Guinness, helping them keep a strong, young core together that does not require big overhauls over the seasons.

Season prediction: 9th

Fort Viljan Northern FC
Home colours: Yellow/dark blue with purple accents – dark blue - yellow
Away colours: Dark blue and yellow – yellow – dark blue
Stadium: Citadel of the North (40,000)
Nickname: Warriors
Championships: 6 (Seasons 22, 27, 30, 39, 40, 41)
Years in TPL: 88 (1st back in Premier League)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 10th
Manager: Damian Haikkanen (37)
Starting XI: 4-3-3. Olson – Stenmark, Fanark, Christensen, Koldingsgaard – Nielsen, Sandstrom, Lundbergh – Lagermar, Liljestrand, Lundin.
Rest of Squad: Spooner – Rismark, Lofgren, Peterson – Opdal, Gustavsson, Larsen – Tornquist, Lindskog, O'Malley.

One of only three teams in the 99-year history of the Tikariotian Premier League to win three championships in a row (together with the Carathyr Emeralds and Viathyn Park AFC that is languishing in lowly third division by now), the Fort Viljan Northern FC is one of these stories of a club having failed to see the writing on the wall. After their highly successful era they missed plenty of opportunities to refresh the team and continuously build, but instead tried to regain lost ground by bringing on expensive veterans that either were past their prime or just were not feasible to keep on record. So after their last relegation management finally gave in and instituted a complete reinvention of the team, putting the emphasis on local grown talent and young, hungry players. Coach Damian Haikkanen is the architect of the revival of the league's most northwestern club (the closest team to Fort Viljan are the Veriasod Lakers, a whopping 678 km away, with no less than five teams in the league over 1800 km from the Citadel of the North) and he hopes that the new approach will also reap some rewards in the TPL.

Season prediction: 20th

Gamsk County FC
Home colours: Dark teal with yellow – dark teal – dark teal
Away colours: White with teal – white - white
Stadium: Lorland County Stadium (30,000)
Nickname: Sharks
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 28 (24 in a row)
Best position achieved: 7th
Position in all-time table: 28th
Manager: Gunther Strongfoot (61)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Paulsen – Dickens, Carr, McKinley, Spielman – Mattheiss, Reddington, McFarlane, Fuller – Fondy, Herrera.
Rest of Squad: Hurst – Bamford, Oakes, Blew – Greaves, Griffiths, Davies – Rellingwood, Onariase, Robinson.

Despite their teal and yellow colours, Gamsk County is the proverbial grey mouse of the TPL. Having been in the league for 24 years in a row now, they managed to get into the top ten a meagre three times and their fairly unspectacular style of play has not really endeared many fans outside of the Gamsk region, sitting about halfway between Tikariot City and Port Rhovanyon in Western Dhaencunor. Led by veteran coach Gunther Strongfoot, who has been at the Gamsk helm for 15 years now, they are efficient, if not anything else, and somehow manage to ride the line of mediocrity remarkably well, even though a few years back they came dangerously close to rupturing their streak of continuous TPL presence. Them flying under the radar of many pundits and opponents has enabled them to stay fairly safe most of the times, but especially this season with Fort Viljan and Morannon returning to the top flight, things could get a little dicy for the Sharks.

Season prediction: 18th

Guillarim Blades FC
Home colours: Dark green – yellow – dark green
Away colours: Yellow – yellow - yellow
Stadium: Frahaul National Stadium (31,250)
Nickname: Defenders
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 91 (3 in a row)
Best position achieved: 2nd
Position in all-time table: 14th
Manager: Helion Gauran (50)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Klingbeil – Abidor, Attacora, Bowen, Irwin – Pasquali, Ferrell, Nagel, Argandiwal – Kalhor, Ward.
Rest of Squad: Hagan – Deering, Quigley, Oakley – Graham, Gowans, Trout – Marshall, Fernandez, Barrowcliff.

One of the original TPL teams, the Guillarim Blades are the best positioned team in the all-time table to never have claimed the championship of Tikariot. The only team ever from the small, mountainous province of Frahaul to even reach the professional leagues overall, the Blades have had eight relegations and eight promotions within twenty seasons before finally catching a very precarious foothold in the top league three seasons ago, but every time teetering dangerously close to the drop zone. Driven by a very dedicated fanbase, as sports fans don't really have any other team to cheer for to begin with), they prefer a very defensive style that might be utilitarian, but has not been yielding any success either, if one does not count continuous re-promotions.

Season prediction: 23rd

Kyethas Rivermen FC
Home colours: Black with white sleeves – black - black
Away colours: White with black sleeves – black - white
Stadium: Scorross Park (39,000)
Nickname: Wisemen
Championships: 2 (Seasons 63, 77)
Years in TPL: 77 (77 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 12th
Manager: Julius Akwanyama (39)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. O'Hennessy – Juncay, A. Sullivan, Abrahams, Bonacieux – C. Usher, Milner, Chalbaud, Markham – Wilton, Lucero.
Rest of Squad: Vinson – Vincelot, Smythe, Effiong – Julian, Gittings, Beevor – Westley, Fairclough, Cornwell.

Hailing from the second largest city in Dhaencunor, the Kyethas Rivermen are the other expansion team next to Eivora to have never been relegated. The Black and White took 26 years to reach the top ten for the first time, but once they got there they made themselves very comfortable, raking in two championships in the process. Under the tutelage of Julius Akwanyama they are trying to regain their previous constant spot in the top tens, a status that they had been struggling with a little of late, but bringing in new blood with Travis Chalbaud, Serge Bonacieux and Peter Fairclough they hope to rekindle the fire of the recent past. Akwanyama is not known for any radical approaches, but management is hoping that his calm authority will steer the ship in calm waters and right the course.

Season prediction: 7th

Miruan City FC
Home colours: Teal and white – teal - white
Away colours: White – teal - white
Stadium: Mary A. Sharad Park (33,000)
Nickname: Lions
Championships: 3 (Seasons 1, 72, 75)
Years in TPL: 94 (17 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 7th
Manager: Wilmer Cabrera (42)
Starting XI: 3-4-3. Heinrich – Chitwick, Hardin, Kendall – Dodson, van Haar, Thornton, Abbott – McLoughlin, Baxter, Wagstaff.
Rest of Squad: Higgins – Greenwood, Sarll, Allinson – Maguire, Ashton, Taverner – Carragher, Wallace, Sampson.

The first champion in TPL history have been relegated twice overall, but have been one of the few teams that have managed to bounce back both times, even going on to win two championships during their second stint. Known for their traditionally attack-minded style of play, the Lions have been trying to step out of the shadow of their local rivals Vantanoch FC (five-time champions relegated to an elevator team with 16 relegations overall) and the Parakleion Firebirds, which are ten-times champions, but if there is one thing Miruan never did was give up and it still shows with the ardent fan base that will travel with the team all across Tikariot. They have been able to keep the core of the team together, with some targeted transfers to strengthen the squad. This season they were able to pry away Finbar McLoughlin from Parakleion of all teams, due to his concerns about playing time in a one-forward system.

Season prediction: 5th

Morannon Athletic FC
Home colours: Light blue/black – black – light blue
Away colours: Black and white – white - black
Stadium: The Granary (59,000)
Nickname: Grasshoppers
Championships: 11 (Seasons 28, 32, 34, 35, 45, 54, 56, 58, 70, 71, 78)
Years in TPL: 96 (1st back in Premier League)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 5th
Manager: Walker Talbot (57)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Fisher – Jovanovski, Baker, Mill, Maddox – Heskey, Klein, Mackie, Poole – Bentley, Jacobs.
Rest of Squad: Robbins – Fowler, Whittingham, Bettamer – Kinsella, Shields, Pendleton – Wiggins-Clark, Finney, Tierney.

The Tikariotian record champions with eleven titles had a swift falling from grace going from title contender to second division team in a matter of mere years and just came back to the TPL for the second time. With Walker Talbot as new coach they hope to avoid the direct relegation they suffered two years ago and begin to establish themselves in the to flight once more. At one point one of Tikariot's offensive powerhouses, Talbot has tuned that down for a more stable defensive foundation at the far fiercer competition in the TPL. Relying on a young, talented team with veteran defenders Aaron Jovanovski and Brad Mill as anchors, they will attempt to take it slow and not make the second step before the first.

Season prediction: 17th

Nagoush FC
Home colours: Dark grey with orange – dark grey - orange
Away colours: Orange – dark grey - orange
Stadium: Copperhead Road (42,500)
Nickname: Knights
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 33 (1st back in Premier League)
Best position achieved: 4th
Position in all-time table: 27th
Manager: Lester Manning (47)
Starting XI: 5-4-1. Pope – Simms, Acosta, Bonner, Daniels, Vaniere – Rodriguez, Wilcox, Ho, Hood – Huffman.
Rest of Squad: Barrett – Lester, Wendison, Mandeville – Denton, Buchanan, Grey – Molyneux, Altrincham, Baggett.

The only Taerian team in the TPL has had two fairly sizable stints in the TPL before crashing out two seasons ago. They rebounded immediately and are now trying for a third run at the upper echelons, thanks to the new system Lester Manning instilled into the team, going into with a defence-first minded 5-4-1. It is a departure from their previous tactics, but they've been conceding far too many goals in the last few seasons in the top flight, so a change of approach was needed. Goalkeeper James Hope and midfielder Jean-Jacques Vaniere come from the bench of Miruan City and the Kyethas Rivermen respectively and are hoping to have what it takes to keep the team in the Premier League once more.

Season prediction: 22nd

Oriannor Mountaineers FC
Home colours: Dark blue with orange trim – dark blue - orange
Away colours: Orange – white - orange
Stadium: Mountain Fortress (54,000)
Nickname: Yetis
Championships: 7 (Seasons 26, 29, 47, 51, 55, 59, 65)
Years in TPL: 99 (99 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 1st
Manager: Damon McWard (54)
Starting XI: 4-5-1. Harding – Rowley, Knox, Short, Waltham – Hill, Monaghan, Cartwright, Christie, Lyons – Sweeney.
Rest of Squad: Howell – Asanta, Smith, Thomas-Clarke – Eastham, Towell, Andrade – Whitehead, Grimmell, Clements.

The leader of the all-time table and one of two Khazagh-based teams to ever play in the TPL has found itself stuck in the middle of the pack for the last 25 years with only few deviations to either side. The fans have been clamouring for a new attack on the title, but despite a fifth-place finish last season the Mountaineers have not had a very good off-season. Coach Shane Goldman moved on to the Baraldhur AFC, taking much touted midfield starlet Jonathan Carlin with him, and also a frustrated Parramore Haigh switching allegiances to Tikariot City after a season spent mostly on the bench and the outlook of more time out of the starting eleven due to Damon McWard's defensive tactical preference, leave the Yetis with more questions than answers and a lot of unknowns frustrating fans and pundits alike. At this point the seven-time champions' future could literally go either way.

Parakleion Firebirds FC
Home colours: Red with yellow trim – red - red
Away colours: Yellow and white – yellow - yellow
Stadium: Tech Park (40,000)
Nickname: Phoenix
Championships: 10 (Seasons 2, 7, 33, 36, 42, 48, 52, 60, 98, 99)
Years in TPL: 99 (99 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 6th
Manager: Leland Cramortie (29)
Starting XI: 5-4-1. Whelan – Stewart, Vance, Pate, Keylick, Morley – Whittle, Britton, Maxwell, Gray – Arrowsmith.
Rest of Squad: Mosley – Hall, Azaz, Long – Milton, Addai, Duffy – Ironside, Gallagher, McConnaugh.

To call the Parakleion Firebirds the team of the moment would be an understatement, having won two back-to-back championships. Led by the league's youngest coach in 29-year old Leland Cramortie, the Phoenix has truly risen from the ashes of mediocrity, playing out of a very compact defence, but despite the 5-4-1 orientation the wing backs can act very offensively, creating the man-advantage when needed even though Cramortie rather sees a 1-0 win than a 5-4, much to the chagrin of many of the Paladonians' fans. But it is hard to argue with success and driven by it no starting team members have left the team, instead bolstering the bench in an attempt to make it a three-peat and rising into the illustrious club of teams winning the title three times in a row (right now consisting of Fort Viljan, Viathyn Park and Carathyr).

Season prediction: 3rd

Port Rhovanyon AFC
Home colours: Dark blue – white - white
Away colours: White with dark blue – dark blue - white
Stadium: Oceanview Stadium (63,000)
Nickname: Kraken
Championships: 2 (Seasons 92, 97)
Years in TPL: 99 (99 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 8th
Manager: Arthur Wolseley (59)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. Merson – Kovalchuk, Dunlap, O'Connor, Salt – Thorniley, Irvine, Welch, Wikens – Haney, Connolly.
Rest of Squad: Harper – Turnbull, Artell, Dale – Wintle, Lowery, Ng – Pickering, Ainley, Sang-Jefferies.

It took the Kraken 92 years to finally hoist the champions' trophy, but since then they have not finished worse than fourth, including a second championship three years ago. A lot of this is founded in the unique playing style of coach, who has perfected a 4-4-2 that in the blink of an eye can shift into a 5-4-1. a 4-3-3 or whatever else the game requires at the time, making Port Rhovanyon one of the most difficult teams to play against. This incredible versatility and tactical discipline has both resulted in praise and criticism by players, some of which complain about the expectations being unreasonably high. However neither Wolseley nor upper management are willing to compromise the winning formula, which has led to a lot of evolution, but not revolution, of the squad, carefully hand-picking players that fit both the system and the club character.

Port Tacassam FC
Home colours: Purple with white – white - purple
Away colours: White – purple - white
Stadium: Dragonscrest Stadium (79,000)
Nickname: Rams
Championships: 5 (Seasons 6, 12, 49, 53, 76)
Years in TPL: 99 (99 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 4th
Manager: Hassan Al Jumaily (44)
Starting XI: 3-5-2. Gonzalez – Coronello, Elliott, Faizullah – Al Hak, Abn Faar, Welch, Dolan, Stubbs – del Rosso, Grimaud.
Rest of Squad: Wainwright – McNulty, Wootton, Harding – McCormack, Randley, Cooper – Moore, Harriman, Harridan.

Finishing outside of the top ten only three times in the last 53 years, Port Tacassam FC is the epitome of continued success in the Tikariotian Premier League, even though they only have five championships (three of which during the aforementioned streak) to show for. Under the aegis of Hassan Al Jumaily, who had come up through the academy both as player and then coach, so if there is someone in the organization that embodies the Port Tacassam philosophy, then it is him and it shows. From the first steps as juniors, Rams players are brought up in the same 3-5-2 system with two defensive midfielders, one central conductor and two offensive midfielders that can push forward to create a sudden majority in the opposing team's defensive territory.

Pyathora Mariners FC
Home colours: Blue – blue - white
Away colours: White – white - white
Stadium: Southside Docks (49,500)
Nickname: Scourge of the Seas
Championships: 6 (Seasons 80, 83, 84, 86, 94, 96)
Years in TPL: 32 (25 in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 24th
Manager: Ray Socorro (46)
Starting XI: 5-4-1. Hynes – Battle, Cisneros, Grimes, Herrera, Myers – Vacarese, Roth, Conrad, Bowden – Sheffield.
Rest of Squad: Jensen – Marshall, McWilliams, Lowe – Vahlidal, Hoskins, Atangana – Smerdon, Dodd, Hartridge.

The Mariners are one of the most successful “younger” teams, racking up six championships in just 32 seasons (with the first seven spent in constant relegation risks). Tied closely to the Tikariotian Navy that has its biggest base in Pyathora, the Scourge of the Seas has been named one of the most difficult stadiums to play in. As could be expected from a team associated with a military branch, discipline is very high and the defence is the Pyathoran showpiece and coach Ray Socorro's “offence wins games, defence wins championships” motto obviously has borne fruit more than once. With two national team players in their ranks with offensive midfielder Giovanni Vacarese and striker extraordinaire Graydon Sheffield they still possess enough firepower to overcome frustrated opponents that fail to penetrate their defensive fortress.

Tikariot City FC
Home colours: Purple and gold – purple - gold
Away colours: Gold and purple – gold - purple
Stadium: Dhaencunor Arena (84,000)
Nickname: Snowy Owls
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 68 (6 in a row)
Best position achieved: 2nd
Position in all-time table: 17th
Manager: Clayton Venantius (34)
Starting XI: 4-3-2-1. Garner – Burgess, Floyd, Cowan, Watts – Rushdon, Waller, Dillard – Langley, Haigh – Hendersley.
Rest of Squad: Haworth – Jillson, Maxted, Randall – Reader, Kellow, Curtis – Bastin, Giles, Banks.

With 68 years in the TPL and no championships to their name, Tikariot City FC is third in the list behind Guillarim and Xanark when it comes to longest streaks without any tangible success. After a lengthy absence from the top flight, the Snowy Owls finally seem to have somewhat established themselves and are putting themselves in position to jockey for a shot at one-digit finishes. Clayton Venantius, who took over two years ago after a few very successful campaigns with non-league Obsidian Crown FC, also from Tikariot City, was a big risk given his complete lack of even league coaching experience, but his fresh style is taking not just the biggest city of Tikariot by storm. Operating under a tight budget he has proved that he has been able to scout in the second division and filter out players that have shown that they are capable of being competitive in the TPL as well. Best examples is the axis of Sebastian Garner, Donovan Floyd, Duncan Waller and Silas Hendersley, who all came through the second division, now strengthened by Parramore Haigh, coming over from Oriannor. It's sink or swim for the Owls this season, where are they headed?

Valnohar Rovers FC
Home colours: Forest green – black – forest green
Away colours: White with forest green – white – forest green
Stadium: Weston Road (40,500)
Nickname: Chameleons
Championships: 1 (Season 89)
Years in TPL: 35 (20 years in a row)
Best position achieved: 1st
Position in all-time table: 2nd
Manager: Jimmy Hormaz (71)
Starting XI: 4-4-2. McHugh – Mitchell, Sharples, Clements, Hough – Snow, Marriott, McCray, Howett – Ekpetita, Carson.
Rest of Squad: Sparrow – Nemane, Birkenshaw, Koszela – Andrews, Wynter, Whitfield – Cavagnari, Coulson, Pears.

After a very Topsy-turvey start to their TPL career, the Valnohar Rovers have established themselves as a true powerhouse, which has led them to one championship so far. Jimmy Hormaz is the oldest coach in the league and while some people have accused him from playing an antiquated form of football in a 4-4-2 formation, but the team still manages to score high with the fans, who have been relentless in their support for the Chameleons. With one of the most solid centre back duos in Richdon Sharples and Pascal Clements and national team hopeful Nathan Ekpetita upfront the Rovers want to mount another title challenge this year, even though they have not brought on any new first-team players. Pundits have mentioned the old adage “slow and steady” several times with Valnohar and even if they are not on the right path right away, they will continue down their path.

Season prediction: 6th

Veriasod Lakers FC
Home colours: Light blue with white – white – light blue
Away colours: Dark blue – white – dark blue
Stadium: Lakeside Stadium (49,000)
Nickname: Twisters
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 31 (29 in a row)
Best position achieved: 4th
Position in all-time table: 25th
Manager: Dominic Girard (40)
Starting XI: 5-4-1. Arrondo – Liniack, Person, Tomlinson, Redman, Cumbernauld – Garrison, Tran, Swift, Burnett – Beaumont.
Rest of Squad: Hopgood – Coyne, Warnock, Fry – Plough, Malley, McPhee – N. Tavernier, Browne, Warnell.

Part of a pack of teams that is slowly creeping up the all-time table (such as Pyathora, Valnohar, Nagoush and Gamsk) the Veriasod Lakers have been nicknamed the “Wall of Dhaencunor” before due to their uncompromising defensive work that has allowed less than a goal per game over the years. The 5-4-1 set-up of Dominic Girard plays right into this philosophy, but he would likely not have achieved the success he has without also knowing how to quickly shift forward, especially with national right back Vincent Liniack and budding star Lloyd Cumbernauld being able to turn the 5-4-1 into a 3-4-3 in a heartbeat. Kieran Beaumont, nominally only actual striker in the starting eleven, now has the difficult task to succeed now retired Elmore Carbridge, who has hung up his professional boots and has turned towards some non-league play in the autumn of his career.

Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC
Home colours: Grey with yellow – yellow - grey
Away colours: Yellow – grey - yellow
Stadium: Bay Area Park (31,000)
Nickname: Eagles
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 1 (1st back in Premier League)
Best position achieved: 23rd
Position in all-time table: 47th
Manager: Nolan Carpenter (54)
Starting XI: 4-2-3-1. Andalay – Cortez, McGuire, Harris, Chadwick – Bishop, Carver – McTierney, Fitzsimmons, Aspinall – Devine.
Rest of Squad: Weaver – Brackedge, Thrower, Moseley – Coyne, Woodgate, Percovich – Arrandale, Kenyon, McKinstry.

The by and far least experienced TPL team are the Ysgrann Bay Eagles, back only for their second year ever. Their first endeavour three years ago ended in a disappointing 23rd position and are hoping for a better result this time around. With new coach Nolan Carpenter, coming from the Bul Khungur Miners, the Eagles appear intend to roll over the opposition with a very offensive 4-2-3-1 system, which is the exact opposite of Parakleion's approach, which should be a fan favourite all around. Mostly leaning on the team that won the promotion, the only two new faces in the first team are forwards Iain Aspinall and Jenson McTierney, who Ysgrann Bay managed to pry away from second division hotshots Toroyra FC and Khalgarh Valley respectively, who were both in the top five goalscorers of last season.

The Zhelmagor Society FC
Home colours: Black with dark purple – dark purple - black
Away colours: White with dark purple – white – dark purple
Stadium: Zhelma Keep (24,000)
Nickname: The Society
Championships: 0
Years in TPL: 7 (3 in a row)
Best position achieved: 16th
Position in all-time table: 41st
Manager: Lochlan Blackstone (41)
Starting XI: 4-2-4. Nair – Buckwall, Doan, Dunne, Mansell – Correa, Fitzpatrick – Andrews, Sheppard, Cunningham, Melton.
Rest of Squad: Povey – Galloway, Edmondson, Cresswell – McCoulsky, Cowley, Moore-Taylor – Chamberlain, Kitchener, Winchester.

The Zhelmagor Society is one of the most mysterious entities to enter the TPL not just in recent years. Ownership is cloaked in shadows and operates as a foundation of the same name, the stadium resembles a fort more than a sporting venue and the colours of black and dark purple are equally foreboding. Their few appearances in the TPL have been comparatively unremarkable, plateauing at 16th position three times out of seven, but their fans are a sight to behold, especially abroad. Dressed in all black they form an impenetrable cloud of darkness that will fervently rally behind their team when they have the ball and then fall deathly silent when they do not, creating a quite intimidating atmosphere that has taken opposing players by surprise countless times. Coach Lochlan Blackstone has been appointed by the Society without any credentials or background on where he may (or may not) have coached before, but he apparently prefers a rare 4-2-4 formation, which could make for interesting matches.

The Tikariotian Premier League is being covered by Simon Nighthorse.

The first two match days of the Tikariotian Premier League have been played and the 100th anniversary season is under way.

MATCHDAY 1
Port Rhovanyon AFC 6-2 Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC (Connolly 12, 41, 89, Kovalchuk 22, Thorniley 55, Lowery 81 - Aspinall 35, McTierney 70)
Oriannor Mountaineers FC 2-1 Morannon Athletic FC (Christie 17p, Short 22 - Bentley 60)
Carathyr Emeralds FC 2-2 Fort Viljan Northern FC (Nancarrow 71, Fletcher 79 - Liljestrand 29, 82)
Bul Khungur Miners FC 1-0 Nagoush FC (Goulan 7)
Port Tacassam FC 2-0 Zhelmagor Guardians FC (Grimaud 16, del Rosso 41)
Parakleion Firebirds FC 0-1 Avanaroch White Wings FC (Hartney 72)
Kyethas Rivermen FC 2-3 Ancarea FC (Chalbaud 1, 52 - Holasoff 16, Diggins 39, Talbot 88)
Eivora Athletic FC 1-0 Guillarim Blades FC (Hancock 70p)
Baraldhur AFC 3-1 Tikariot City FC (Nighthorse 47, 90, Carlin 45+2 - Haigh 12)
Veriasod Lakers FC 1-1 Anhedron Wanderers FC (Beaumont 22 - Baines 50)
Pyathora Mariners FC 2-2 Miruan City FC (Sheffield 7, 83 - Wagstaff 62, van Haar 70)
Gamsk County FC 2-1 Valnohar Rovers FC (Carr 43, Mattheiss 71 - McCray 50)

The Game of the Week fell to an unexpected match today and it involved the reigning champions Parakleion and 20th of last season, the Avanaroch White Wings. In a sold-out Tech Park all connoisseurs of a good defensive game were in for a treat, even though anybody in for an exciting opening day bout definitely were disappointed. Chances were few and far between and the sweltering heat in Parakleion did nothing to encourage a high speed affair either. The first half was marked by the defenses on either side dominating, allowing three shots on goal in total, all three for the Firebirds, with a cannon of a free kick by Corbin Whittle being the closest to scoring after 41 minutes. The second half continued the defensive stalemate, but as time went on, the heat took its toll and concentration on either side began to slip with exhaustion. Despite this, though, Cameron Whelan and Vincent Litman only had fairly easy ball reach them until in the 72nd second Eamonn Rogers swung in a sharp corner, connecting directly with the head of Dean Hartney, who had managed to sneak away from all defenders and slipped it right past Whelan's outstretched foot.

Before kick-off the highest profile match was the meeting between the Pyathora Mariners and Miruan City and it was no disappointing in every which way. In an exciting high-tempo match Graydon Sheffield picked up an early through-pass by Giovanni Vacarese to slot right next to the Miruanian post and even though the first half did not see another goal, there were plenty of scoring chances, with both Frederick Hynes and national keeper Stephen Heinrich having plenty of chances to show why they are considered some of the best goalminders in the league. It took until the 62nd minute and a beautiful solo by Ellis Wagstaff for the guests to be able to celebrate and only eight minutes later Nicholas van Haar turned the game around when he converted a long ball from Fraser Chiltwick to slot it past Hynes, but their cheers only lasted until the 83rd minute when it was again Graydon Sheffield that struck a volley right into the roof of the net after a cross floated in by Israel Conrad to make it 2-2.

In other news the biggest win of opening day was a 6-2 thrashing of the newly promoted Ysgrann Bay Eagles at the hands of Port Rhovanyon AFC, while in another upset Ancarea FC managed to sneak a 3-2 away win at Kyethas' Scorross Park. Gamsk County surprised Valnohar, while the rest of the games went pretty much as expected.

MATCHDAY 2
Morannon Athletic FC 0-2 Port Rhovanyon AFC (Welch 37, Connolly 49)
Fort Viljan Northern FC 3-4 Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC (Liljestrand 61, 64, Koldingsgaard 14 - Aspinall 19, 29, 51, Bishop 59)
Nagoush FC 1-0 Oriannor Mountaineers FC (Hood 22)
Zhelmagor Guardians FC 0-0 Carathyr Emeralds FC
Avanaroch White Wings FC 2-0 Bul Khungur Miners FC (Hartney 19p, Tomkins 53)
Ancarea FC 1-0 Port Tacassam FC (Drechsler 69)
Guillarim Blades FC 1-1 Parakleion Firebirds FC (Attacora 36 - Gray 41)
Tikariot City FC 1-0 Kyethas Rivermen FC (Haigh 58)
Anhedron Wanderers FC 0-0 Eivora Athletic FC
Miruan City FC 0-4 Baraldhur AFC (Iribarren 29, 72, D Hardcastle 42p, Nighthorse 82)
Valnohar Rovers FC 0-1 Veriasod Lakers FC (Cumbernauld 2)
Gamsk County FC 1-4 Pyathora Mariners FC (McFarlane 62 - Vacarese 19, Bowden 49, Sheffield 78, Hartridge 90)

Most eyes on match day 2 went to Miruan, where the Lions hosted Baraldhur AFC, whose plight to change their fortunes around under new coach Shane Goldman is off to a splendid start. After winning their opening match against Tikariot City 3-1 they added a demanding 4-0 win to their score. After a fairly even beginning, Gaizka Iribarren broke the stalemate after pouncing on a deflected shot by Davey Dixon to make it 0-1 in the 29th before David Hardcastle converted a foul penalty three minutes before half time. In the second half Miruan came out like a whirlwind, pushing towards Romain Chatelet's goal with reckless abandon, but a lightning quick counter attack led by Dion Brogan and Gideon Vaughan and finished by Iribarren for his second goal broke Miruan's spirit and the rest of the game was easy play for Baraldhur and Morris Nighthorse added a fourth in the 82nd, finishing the Nightninjas' rout.

Another very eventful match took place in Tikariot City's Dhaencunor Arena, where the local FC met with their arch rivals Kyethas, who were out for redemption after their shocking loss against Ancarea in the week before. There was redemption, but it came on behalf of the hosts, who made memories of the 1-3 loss to Baraldhur forgotten. It was a very heated game, worthy their decade old rivalry, with not a whole lot of flow, but a lot of fight, with seven yellow cards during the first half being a clear indicator. But it was nothing compared to what was to follow. In the 58th minute an error by Andy Milner brought the ball to Parramore Haigh and after not seeing any of his team mates in the clear, he went for it, managing to weave around Kyethan defenders like a slalom racer before finishing with a humourless shot right above Andrew O'Hennessy. After this, though, all hell broke loose. It started with a horrendous stud-forward challenge by Zachary Juncay that hit Haigh just under the knee and then quickly unraveled into a brawl that saw both Connor Markham and Niall Rushdon ejected as a result. This thankfully calmed things down, also thanks to referee Andrew Gaidan getting both captains and coaches involved, leaving Kyethas with 0 points after their first two games.

Both Valnohar after a 0-1 home loss to Veriasod and Morannon Athletic (0-2 against table leaders Port Rhovanyon) are in the same boat as the Rivermen, just with worse goal difference, while Avanaroch and Ancarea continue to surprise sitting at the top of the table together with Baraldhur and Port Rhovanyon with 2 for 2, Avanaroch beating the Bul Khungur Miners 2-0, while Ancarea blanked favourites Port Tacassam 1-0, making them one of the most dangerous teams for perceived favourites this season so far.

Veriasod Lakers FC 1-1 Pyathora Mariners FC (Beaumont 61 - Sheffield 56)

Prior to match day three many had considered that the Match of the Week would be either the one of reigning champions Parakleion against Anhedron or Veriasod against Pyathora, but once again another match stole the show and one with unlikely participants. Newly promoted Ysgrann Bay Eagles, who had lost with a resounding 2-6 against Port Rhovanyon in round one, faced off against the mysterious Zhelmagor Society. The Acrassian team had returned to the TPL with a reputation of high scoring games and this one did not disappoint. It was the Society that would go up 1-0 early on when Avery Cunningham hammered a free-kick home in the ninth with not a wisp of a chance for Eagles goalie Niron Andalay, but the grey and yellow hosts did not let that deter them from their path.

Only seven minutes after the parity was restored when Ezekiel Harris cleared a ball from his own box to find Jenson McTierney out left with plenty of space. He took the opportunity to leave Mason Mansell in the dust, then went for broke and from a tight angle chipped the ball right over Ward Nair for a beautiful goal. Despite the distance between Ysgrann Bay and Zhelmagor a sizeable contingent of Society fans had made the trip out west and underlined the eerie reputation of Society fans. Dressed in all black, they are deathly silent when the opposing team has the ball, while creating an incredible racket when the Society is in possession and this game was no different, which was a really odd feeling. But they had plenty of opportunities to practice this ritual as it was a fast-paced game with a lot of scoring chances on both sides, the first seeing success in the 38th minute when rising star Iain Aspinall converted a McTierney corner to make it 2-1 before the first half wrapped up.

In the second period it was again The Zhelmagor Society to come out of the gates with more energy and success, because Clay Fitzpatrick was able to cash in on a horrendous mistake by Patrick Chadwick whose pass back to Niron Andalay was far too short and Fitzpatrick was able to gather up the ball and coolly slot it past Andalay to make it 2-2 in the 49th. Just like in the first half, though, it did not take longn for the retaliation by the Eagles when Taio Devine picked up a through pass of Rylan Bishop to send Nair into the wrong corner and restore the lead for the hosts. In the 71st minute it was Bishop who benefitted from a nice solo-run of McTierney and was just one step faster than his opponent to get his foot to the low cross, making it 4-2. But the Society was not done yet and increased its efforts to get back into the game, but Damian Correa's header in the 78th minute was the last countable effort, leaving the Eagles with a spectacular 4-3 win.

In other games Port Rhovanyon stretched their unbeaten streak to three with a narrow 1-0 win over Fort Viljan, while Baraldhur kept abreast with them with a 2-1 comeback victory against Gamsk County with David Hardcastle scoring twice to secure another three points for the Balkashians. Avanaroch's high-flying start hit a roadblock when they were blanked 2-0 in Oriannor and on the other end of the table both Morannon, 0-1 against Nagoush, and Valnohar, 1-2 in Eivora, are the only teams without a single point after Kyethas finally managed to scrape by their first in a 2-2 draw against Miruan City, courtesy of a late goal by Ainsley Wilton.

MATCHDAY 4
Nagoush FC 2-4 Port Rhovanyon AFC (Hood 48, Huffman 79 - Thorniley 10, 57, Wickens 3, Irvine 72)
The Zhelmagor Society FC 2-1 Fort Viljan Northern FC (Melton 70, 88 - Nielsen 78)
Avanaroch White Wings FC 2-0 Morannon Athletic FC (Corkhill 11, Glover 62)
Ancarea FC 0-2 Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC (Aspinall 5, Carver 23)
Guillarim Blades FC 1-0 Oriannor Mountaineers FC (Ward 85)
Tikariot City FC 0-3 Carathyr Emeralds FC (Tomlinson 7, 52, 75)
Anhedron Wanderers FC 1-2 Bul Khungur Miners FC (Thomas 74 - Yarbrough 6, Conway 26)
Miruan City FC 2-0 Port Tacassam FC (Baxter 84, Dodson 88)
Valnohar Rovers FC 0-1 Parakleion Firebirds FC (Arrowsmith 84)
Gamsk County FC 3-1 Kyethas Rivermen FC (Herrera 18, McFarlane 29, Spielman 36 - Lucero 63)
Pyathora Mariners FC 1-1 Eivora Athletic FC (Bowden 59 - Sullivan 19)
Veriasod Lakers FC 3-2 Baraldhur AFC (Burnett 70, 82, Cumbernauld 6 - D Hardcastle 2, Nighthorse 25)

Port Rhovanyon AFC still is the team of the season so far, holding on to the league lead with now four wins in four games after a convincing 4-2 win in Nagoush. The Kraken went off to a magnificent start with Virgil Wickens and Marvin Thorniley scoring within the first ten minutes, taking all wind out of Nagoush's sails. After this they took a step back in the sweltering heat of Nagoush, trying to preserve their strength allowing the Knights to see more possession of the ball, but not necessarily a lot more scoring chances. After the break Madison Hood brought hope to the home fans when he curved a free-kick around the Rhovanian wall to pull back one, but Thorniley with a second goal after 57 minutes restored the two goal lead, which then was even extended 18 minutes to the end by a Jayden Irvine solo that put knots into the Nagoush defense and despite James Pope still getting his fingers to the ball, it was not enough to redirect it around the post. Nathan Huffman's goal seven minutes later was nothing more than a consolation effort for Nagoush, leaving them stranded in the Taerian heat.

Baraldhur, however, suffered their first defeat of the season when they traveled to Veriasod, meeting up with the Lakers that have not had a great start to the campaign with one win and two draws. It was Baraldhur, though, that struck first when David Hardcastle surprised the hosts after only two minutes, catching keeper Esteban Arrondo on the wrong foot for a very early lead. Who thought that Veriasod was shaken by this, though, was mistaken as they pulled even only four minutes later when a cross by Findlay Tran found Lloyd Cumbernauld and his shot was deflected by not only one, but two Baraldhur players leaving Romain Chatelet no chance to save the ball. It was Baraldhur, though, that managed to recover quickly and saw them pull ahead for a second time courtesy of offensive shooting star Morris Nighthorse with his third goal of the season after only 25 minutes. This was followed by furious attacks by the Lakers, but Chatelet was in particular fine form not allowing anything get past him until deep into the second half when Trey Burnett managed to rifle a blazing shot from eight metres out right against the inside of the post and into the goal. Spurned on by this Veriasod did the almost impossible and intensified their efforts even more and were rewarded with a second goal by Burnett giving Veriasod the win and leaving Chatelet in a very foul mood towards his defenders who had left Burnett completely uncovered.

In other play the White Wings bounced back from their loss in Oriannor and blanked Morannon 2-0, which in return leaves the Grasshoppers without a single point still, a fate shared by the Valnohar Rovers, who fell to Parakleion through a late goal by Simon Arrowsmith. Player of the week, though, was Carathyr Emerald striker Ashton Tomlinson, who hammered three goals past a hapless Tikariot City defense for a commanding 3-0 victory that saw the Emerald Coast team's first win after three draws and a rise to eleventh position in the table.

Eivora Athletic FC 0-2 Baraldhur AFC (Iribarren 63, 77)

Five match days in and a few very interesting tendencies are starting to emerge, both on top and bottom. The Match of the Week was announced as Eivora Athletic vs. Baraldhur AFC, sixth versus second, and it did not quite live up to the expectations of fans and experts alike. The first half was an extremely sluggish affair, which could only partially be explained with the heat, but rather with the teams neutralizing each other in midfield, not allowing a lot of structured attacks and the few balls that made it towards either goal did not have any real impact either. The second half, though, showed a lot more fire and it was obvious that the coaches had lit some fires under the teams' collective rears, because suddenly both sides were attempting different approaches and it showed. Especially Michael Gaffigan and Andranik Malikyan now were orchestrating attack after attack on the goal of Romain Chatelet, but once again the Baraldhur keeper was like a wall, not allowing any of the balls through, no matter what Eivora tried.

And as so often when a team has a lot of scoring chances that would not go in, it does not go unpunished and Baraldhur was absolutely ruthless when it came to exploiting the relentless attacks, because within 14 minutes Gaizka Iribarren slammed two shots past Kilian Andrews, keeping the Nightninjas in second position of the table, because the top position never was under threat as they hosted The Zhelmagor Society FC and they continued their unstoppable roll through the TPL with a clear and never really contested 4-0 victory with two goals by Jules Haney, keeping their perfect record intact. Two more teams are still without a loss, that being the Veriasod Lakers, who further compounded the horrendous start to the season for the Kyethas Rivermen, sweeping them out of their own stadium 4-1, and the Pyathora Mariners, who in turn compounded the almost as bad start of reigning champions Parakleion, beating them 2-1 on the Firebirds' home turf.

At the bottom end of the competition we still have five teams without a win, Kyethas now even being in last place, ahead of them Morannon managed to extract a 1-1 draw from the Guillarim Blades, which was less than they had hoped for, Valnohar still are completely besides themselves, rescuing a late draw in Bul Khungur thanks to Nathan Ekpetita's first goal of the season. The Fort Viljan Northern FC also drew at home against the Ancarea FC and finally the Anhedron Wanderers could not defend an early lead against the Oriannor Mountaineers, falling 2-1 in the end.

The game most people had their eyes on this week was Port Rhovanyon's travel to Avanaroch, where the White Wings were trying to keep their slightly topsy-turvey yet altogether good start to the season intact, but unfortunately for them Jardel Connolly did have different plans, with his 23rd-minute goal being the only one of the game in a rather unsightly game where Avanaroch's coach Raymond Cartwright tried to park the bus for most of the game, hoping for long passes forward to reach Thomas Corkhill, but while they did manage to restrict Port Rhovanyon's scoring chances, they did not manage one single shot on goal, sealing their fate and drop to eleventh place in the overall standings. Two teams are currently keeping up with the Kraken, the first one being Baraldhur AFC, who met with the Parakleion Firebirds and Romain Chatelet's outstanding season continues with the second shut-out in a row, when the team from the Balkashian capital blanked the Firebirds 1-0 courtesy of Lee Rooney's lone goal in the 73rd minute after a beautiful corner by Davey Dixon. The third in the gang are the Veriasod Lakers, who also managed to avoid to concede any goals against the Port Tacassam FC with Trey Burnett scoring a brace, keeping the Lakers up and sending the Rams all the way down to 18th position now and dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Speaking of which, two of the yet winless teams managed to score their first three-pointers this weekend, the Kyethas Rivermen squeezed a hard-fought 2-3 from Eivora Athletic while the Anhedron Wanderers stopped Morannon's short-lived hopes of finally finding some sort of rhythm, sending them back home (and to the last position) with a 2-1 loss. Valnohar's draw against Oriannor and Fort Viljan's loss in Tikariot City kept these two without a win after six games as well. But the two most entertaining games this weekend happened in Pyathora and Miruan. The match between the Mariners and the Bul Khungur Miners went off with a bang, Graydon Sheffield scoring right in the first minute, but then Gary Conway equalizing right in minute two. While it was obvious that the teams could not keep up this rhythm and result in a 45-45 draw, but they continued with a very open game and some people said what felt like a "devil may care" attitude, leading to a lot of scoring chances on both sides, leading to Conway capitalizing on some bad communication in the defense of Pyathora, bringing the Miners the lead after only 35 minutes. In the second half, though, the extremely high tempo of the first time took its toll together with the high humidity in Acrassia, and the game suffered from that, with diminishing activity and chances. Despite that, though, the Mariners, used to the climate more than the opponent from mountainous Bul Khungur, tried their best to get at least one more ball past Grant Simonsen, but to no avail.

Miruan, after a bad start to the season so far, faced Ysgrann Bay and the Acrassians so far have been guarantors for entertaining games and Miruan also is traditionally known for its offensive style, resulting in six goals total, not disappointing fans, other than maybe some Miruan City fans. The hosts were off to a flying start with Atlas Baxter and Ellis Wagstaff hitting balls past Niron Andalay two minutes from each other and this gave a lot of hope for the fans of the Lions. The players seemed energized by the early goals, trying to strike down Ysgrann Bay while they were down, but Andalay foiled several more attempts together with central defenders Brandon McGuire and Ezekiel Harris and it was this Brandon McGuire, who pulled back one goal after heading a Rylan Bishop corner past Stephen Heinrich's outstretched hand to see the Eagles down by just one goal by half time. The fans in the Mary A. Sharad Park had more reason to celebrate in the 56th minute after Baxter added a second goal when he powered through the Ysgrann Bay defense and under pressure nutmegged Andalay for the renewal of the two-goal lead and both fans and players seemed very confident that that was it, however the Eagles had very different ideas. With remarkable spirit they managed to break through the Miruanese attacks and push the Paladonians back. In the 81st minute Taio Devine with his second goal of the season benefited from a stray ball in the Miruan box, leading to intensified efforts by Ysgrann Bay and three minutes after the first, Devine coolly chipped a ball over Heinrich, securing an important point for the Eagles, who have scored the second-most goals after Port Rhovanyon) and conceded the most, but sit in comfortable ninth position, proving that Nolan Carpenter's approach is not just spectacular, but does also have success with it.

And a few surprises there were with a couple of third division teams already crashing out against non-league outfits. Port Balkash Thunder fell 1-2 to Heart of Paladon United, Mhasar Gate FC lost on penalties against FC Forward Kvanstad. The Meshdoy Aviators were overcome by the Mytligh Woodsmen by 0-1 and finally also a penalty loss of Nar Morghir United against Port Rhovanyon United. In the next round the first two divisions will join the fun and with 48 non-league teams left there still are lots of hopes for upsets in the air.

Port Rhovanyon AFC undoubtedly is the team of the season so far, six wins in a row and welcoming Ancarea FC, fifth-placed so far, to the Oceanview Stadium, which was packed to the gills. Well, rafters. Ancarea, prior to the season considered one of the prime candidates for relegation, started out with the confidence a team that has been defying the odds often gets, trying to go head to head with the Kraken, who obviously also are running on an absolute high. The first twenty minutes were pretty even, with midfield pretty much neutralizing itself, allowing only few balls to get through to the respective defensive rows and neither Paul Merson nor Winston Ahlgren having to face any particular danger. In the 21st minute, though, the Boars managed to find a small crack in the Rhovanyn wall, quite literally, as Martin Grieves managed to slot a direct freekick right through a hole in the wall, leaving Merson to begrudgingly pick the ball from the back of the net. This prompted coach Arthur Wolseley to switch the formation from a 4-4-2 into a 4-3-3 and the difference was astounding. Port Rhovanyon pushed Ancarea further and further back and at times almost played a power play formation, which yielded its first success in the 41st minute when Jardel Connolly hammered a low cross from Marvin Thorniley with sheer force onto the underside of the crossbar and into the goal, leaving Ahlgren not a ghost of a chance to get his hands on it. But the hosts were not done yet and an indirect freekick looped in again by Thorniley found the head of Jules Haney for the 2-1 lead just in the dying seconds of the first half. The second half, unfortunately could not repeat the furious end to the first and in-between Port Rhovanyon trying to preserve strength by just calmly controlling play and Ancarea seemingly hitting their glass ceiling, the game ended with the same result.

A lot more drama, though, happened in Bul Khungur, where fourth-placed Miners hosted second-placed Baraldhur AFC and what an offensive shootout it was. Both teams are considered among the most attacking of the league and the game was likely a tactitian's nightmare yet for anybody who enjoys an all-out shooting spree, this was the match to watch. And in the first half the Miners completely bulldozed over the unsuspecting Nightninjas with Harry Tasker and Fred Marr surprising the defense around Romain Chatelet with a one-two punch that soon after was even expanded to 3-0 by Donald Jowlit before half-time, leaving the crowd in the Temple of the Crow ecstatic. Baraldhur tried to show more resistance in the second period and began a relentless push on the goal of Grant Simonson, without any countable success, rather the contrary as amidst their high pressing they ran into a fluid counter attack that with two quick passes went from Damian Hernandez to Nick Goulan and on to Jowlit, who was able to make it 4-0 with his second goal of the day. Now most teams would have given up by now, but not Baraldhur, who despite the so far humiliating result did not do that, but instead did the complete opposite and mounted even more challenges and within eight minutes Morris Nighthorse, Lee Rooney and Morgan Stephenson cut the Miners' lead down to one, but ultimately failed to steal a point, also thanks to two incredible saves by Simonson right after each other in the second minute of injury time, seeing Baraldhur suffer their second defeat of the season.

Overall it was a very offensive day, with a total of 39 goals scored, among them a resounding 5-1 win by the Anhedron Wanderers away in Nagoush (with three goals by Jesson Morrison) or a 4-0 shutout of the Ysgrann Bay Eagles by Gamsk. Uptop Veriasod held on to their third place despite a 1-0 loss in Carathyr, while on the other end Morannon's woes continue, losing 1-2 to Valnohar, who in turn managed to extract themselves from the relegation spots for the first time since match day one. In the meantime four teams that had been touted to finish in the top 9 this season are still deeply mired in the bottom third of the table, Parakleion in 17th, Miruan in 18th, Eivora in 19th and Kyethas in 21st position while Gamsk County is currently sitting in fifth position, which would mean qualification for the Taça das Confederações, which would be an incredible success for the Sharks.

Of course all eyes were on Guillarim to see, if the Port Rhovanyon AFC could continue its uncanny streak of seven wins in seven games so far and things went off to a great start for the runaway leaders when Jardel Connolly netted his eigth goal in eight games after five minutes, much to the dismay of the Frahaulian fans. In the thin air of Guillarim the Blades then slowly began to take control of the game, likely due to the Kraken not used to the elevation of Guillarim, second only to Oriannor, leading to a surprisingly even game that had the Blades closer to the equalizer than Port Rhovanyon to a second goal, alas the first half ended without any further scores. That, however, changed only two minutes into the second half when Sharman Kalhor was fed an immensely precise pass by Alphonse Ferrell and with a one touch shot scored the equalizing goal past Paul Merson. Unfortunately for the fans of either side that was it for the real excitement in the game. But thankfully there was another game that was able to captivate audiences and it happened in Baraldhur, where the hosting AFC was trying to bounce back from the surprising 4-3 loss to Bul Khungur against the Oriannor Mountaineers. And the start to this endeavour could hardly have gone worse with the hosts finding themselves down by two goals by the half hour mark after Dainton Hill brace. That, though, was the kick-off to the Morris Nighthorse, the Baraldhur shooting star that had just come on board from second division Toroyra FC for the season. Pulling one back in the 36th minute for the 1-2 half-time score, he added a second goal in the 52nd making the game even. Defender Eren Knox put them behind again, though, giving Oriannor the hope to have given them a decisive advantage this time around, but only four minutes later it was again Nighthorse with his third goal of the game, and eighth of the season pulling even with Port Rhovanyon's Jardel Connolly, for the 3-3 final. A lost opportunity to capitalize on Port Rhovanyon leaving two points on the road, but everything played in the Kraken's favour with Baraldhur, Veriasod and Ancarea all drawing and Bul Khungur losing 3-1 in Kyethas.

Which leads to the opposite end of the table. Morannon Athletic remain dead last after a goalless draw in Pyathora, while the Fort Viljan Northern FC stole three points from surprising Gamsk County with a convincing 4-2 victory. Zhelmagor held Miruan to a goalless draw and as mentioned, Kyethas might finally be on the way back up after sending Bul Khungur home with 3-1 including a Robert Lucero brace. This also meant that another team that everybody had expected in the top half of the table slipped down into the relegation zone, that being Eivora Athletic after falling to Carathyr by one goal to nil.

After dropping their first two points last week with a 1-1 in Guillarim, fans of the Port Rhovanyon AFC were hoping for a resumption of their dominant streak when they welcomed the Tikariot City FC to the Oceanview Stadium. And the match was one of the ones that saw weather at times severely implicate game play. Located in the sports part on the edge of the Rhovanyon Sea certain weather conditions can funnel strong winds through the Grahel Strait into the stadiums and this was one of those days. Despite precautions taken to avoid it from happening, the blustery winds somehow still managed to find their way into the stadium and pretty much ruled out any high balls due to their unpredictability and even affected regular game play, making free and corner kicks a particular challenge due to the ball moving on its own.

As a result the game was not very orderly and the wind should have been awarded an assist for the only goal of the game when Parramore Haigh apparently attempted to calculate how the ball could be blown off course by the wind with a shot from 25 metres out. Predictably unpredictably it did flutter, changing course more than once and fell right to the feet of a surprised Parris Langley who went for a simple shot that still curled next to the post after 38 minutes. At half time Port Rhovanyon officials lodged a complaint with the federation about the weather conditions, but rumours have it that it was denied with the words "You built your stadium here, so you have no reason to complain." So in the second half Tikariot City pretty much walled itself in with a 9-1-0 formation, frustrating the Kraken enough that in conjunction with the wind conditions they inflicted Port Rhovanyon's first loss of the season.

Baraldhur AFC's attempt to capitalize on this was stopped short by a goalless draw in Morannon of all places (who still are dead last in the table), Veriasod also was held to a 0-0 in Fort Viljan and the Bul Khungur Miners completely choked when being steamrolled by the Port Tacassam FC 1-5 with Adrian Grimaud and Oliver del Rosso both scoring braces. The big winners of match day 9 undoubtedly were the Carathyr Emeralds, who jumped three spots to third, courtesy of three goals by Ashton Tomlinson in a 4-0 pounding of the Parakleion Firebirds, who are now sitting in a very unchampionlike 15th position after nine matchdays. Looking at the other end of the table, Morannon's third draw of the season still sees them four points adrift from 23rd positioned Fort Viljan. Above them, though, sit four teams with eight points each, Zhelmagor and Eivora currently in the other two relegation spots, while Kyethas and Valnohar are still above the line due to their superior goal difference. Speaking of Eivora, though, they have been part of the most spectacular game of the week, which also once more involved the Ysgrann Bay Eagles, who again proved why they have very quickly evolved into one of the league's most favourite teams.

Taio Devine kicked the spectacle off in the 18th minute when he converted an Iain Aspinall cross to slot the ball right past Kilian Andrews before Anranik Malikyan and George Hancock turned the game upside down for half time. But what happened from the 60 minute on was a feast for any follower of offensive minded football. Aspinall equalized in the 60th minute, then Dean Berrymore made it 2-3 in the 66th. With a double-whammy in the 70th and 71st Devine and Aspinall made it 4-3. Again Berrymore once more put the game even in the 77th minute before Rylan Bishop finished things off with three minutes to go for the 5-4 final score.

Bul Khungur Miners FC 1-1 Carathyr Emeralds FC (Conway 26 - Collins 60)

If there is one thing that the TPL is predictable for this season, it is its utter unpredictability. Outside of the top two and the last-placed team, there has been tremendous flux, as example of the week Tikariot City FC proves. A week ago they scored a surprise win in Port Rhovanyon, inflicting the first loss to the runaway leaders (granted, weather played a role in it, but as always both teams are exposed to the same conditions) and this week against struggling Miruan City the tables turned in dramatic fashion. After only 27 minutes the Paladonians were up 4-0 with Elias Wagstaff scoring a brace in the process. Add to that a fifth goal just before half-time and predictably this broke the visitors' fighting spirit and the second half saw far less action with only two more scores, Atlas Baxter's second and finally Parramore Haigh's consolation goal. Now all eyes were on Anhedron, though, to see how the Port Rhovanyon AFC would deal with the surprise loss and they did not take any prisoners, blanking the Wanderers with two goals by Jardel Connolly, bringing his season's tally to ten, restoring their command of the league and keeping Baraldhur (who shut out Nagoush 2-0) at a comfortable six-point distance.

Another highly anticipated match-up saw the Bul Khungur Miners and the Carathyr Emeralds, with one team on the way down and the other on the way up and they obviously could not agree on terms, so they ended up with a rather dull 1-1 draw, but the biggest winners of this match day were the Pyathora Mariners, who used a clear 4-0 over the Avanaroch White Wings to climb to 4th place, the already mentioned Miruan, who jumped six spots, as well as Eivora, who used a 6-0 thrashing of the Fort Viljan Northern FC to not only free themselves from the relegation spots, but also gave their goal difference a healthy boost. Which brings us to the relegation zone, where Morannon Athletic just cannot catch a break, falling 1-2 in Kyethas, leaving them as the only team failing to record a win so far this season. Fort Viljan, as mentioned, took a heavy defeat in Eivora, The Zhelmagor Society narrowly lost out 0-1 in Veriasod and dropping into the relegation zone, Valnohar could not get more than a glum goalless draw against the Guillarim Blades.

Matchday eleven was a turbulent one with more than just one upset and some truly remarkable reults overall. Starting at the very top of the table, Port Rhovanyon AFC welcomed Miruan City FC, who so far have been underachieving, and befitting what had widely been previewed as Match of the Week, these two teams did not fail to deliver. In perfect weather conditions the 63,000 fans inside Oceanview Park were mostly expecting to see, if the home team would be able to maintain or even extend their five-point lead over Baraldhur and things went off with a bang, just not in the right direction for the fans. Only two minutes into the game Atlas Baxter broke through the Rhovanyn defense and surprised everybody, but the Miruanian celebrations did not last long as only three minutes after Marvin Thorniley circled a freekick from just beyond the penalty box into the top corner to equalize things. And the two teams continued to play with an open vizer. McLoughlin brought Miruan the lead again in the 16th minute, but Jardel Connolly with his 11th goal of the season put things on an even keel again after 28 minutes. And that was not it for the first half, as Elias Wagstaff still had a surprise up his sleeve when he picked up a Rayyan Dodson pass and hitting it right past Brian Merson, giving Miruan the third lead of the game. Second half and the same quick start to proceedings as Randy Kovalchuk pushed a Thorniley corner over the line to for the third time bring both teams back to the same level. Then for the first time there was a little bit of a lull to the game until the 72nd minute when Miruan's Finbar McLoughlin did the unthinkable and made it 4-3 for the guests. Driven on by their frenetic fans, though, the Kraken retaliated immediately and Ozan Welch's shot ricocheted off Will Kendall into the back of Stephen Heinrich's net for the 4-4. But 17 minutes without another goal were quite unthinkable after the game so far and indeed they were not done yet. Jardel Connolly finished his first dozen of goals with a screamer from 30 metres out that hit the bottom of the crossbar and then onto the line before bouncing into the goal with twelve minutes to go, sealing Port Rhovanyon's victory with the first time they actually managed to take the lead.

The Baraldhur AFC managed to keep the distance at five points with a narrow 1-0 win over the White Wings in Avanaroch with a very late goal by defender Lee Rooney, the same result that also kept the Veriasod Lakers close behind the Nightninjas in Ancarea. And the Tikariot City FC also continues to surprise after having tried to gain a foothold back in the establishment of the TPL after a prolongued absence, holding on to their fourth position thanks to a 2-0 win over Gamsk County, with the biggest drawback being a -4 goal difference, which puts them at a big disadvantage to any of their table neighbours other than Ysgrann Bay, who snuck by a 2-1 vitory over the Bul Khungur Miners, who seem to be free falling, going from 4th to 12th in three match days only.

The usual look to the bottom of the table reveals that we no longer have any teams without win sitting in the basement as Morannon Athletic finally scored their first three-pointer courtesy of a Tevin Klein header to put them ahead of Port Tacassam FC, making the collective sigh of relief in the Saburnian capital audible throughout Tikariot. This also brings them within three points of The Zhelmagor Society, who blew a 2-goal lead over Eivora Athletic to have to be content with a 2-2 draw, and the Valnohar Rovers, who notched another loss at the hands of the Anhedron Wanderers. One team, though, managed to crawl towards ending their bottom dweller status and in style, as the Fort Viljan Northern FC climbed three spots after thrashing reigning champions Parakleion 5-1 and further compounding the Firebirds' big issues this season.

MATCHDAY 12
Valnohar Rovers FC 0-2 Port Rhovanyon AFC (Thorniley 3, Welch 6)
Gamsk County FC 0-2 Miruan City FC (Thornton 44, Baxter 61)
Pyathora Mariners FC 2-0 Anhedron Wanderers FC (Sheffield 5, Bowden 87)

Kyethas Rivermen FC 0-1 Avanaroch White Wings FC (Rogers 61)
Parakleion Firebirds FC 2-0 The Zhelmagor Society FC (Gray 3, Arrowsmith 81)
Port Tacassam FC 2-0 Nagoush FC (Grimaud 11, Welch 22)
Bul Khungur Miners FC 1-2 Fort Viljan Northern FC (Marr 17 - Liljestrand 31, 46)
Carathyr Emeralds FC 0-0 Morannon Athletic FC
Oriannor Mountaineers FC 1-2 Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC (Christie 32 - Cortez 28, Carver 42)

Starting at the end of the spectrum, Morannon has managed another draw, away to boot, and given that they managed to sneak the point out of Carathyr, who lost their fifth position and potential qualification for the Taça das Confederações, makes it even sweeter. In a way the point counts even more as both Zhelmagor and Valnohar failed to add any points to their respective tallies, both losing 2-0 apiece, in Parakleion, which soothed many a fan's tortured soul in the Paladonian Tech Triangle, and against Port Rhovanyon respectively. Fort Viljan managed to catapult themselves out of the relegation zone by plunging Bul Khungur in even deeper problems, Jesse Liljestrand scoring twice to turn the game around and pushing Nagoush into the red zone, unwillingly playing part in Port Tacassam's redemption from their loss in Morannon last week.

As mentioned, Port Rhovanyon continutes to soldier on at the top of the table, with two quickfire goals by Marvin Thorniley and Ozan Welche making quick work against the Rovers in the third and sixth minute, putting the pressure on the Baraldhur AFC and the Veriasod Lakers to keep up. Baraldhur hosted the Guillarim Blades, who so far had enjoyed a pretty good season and goals by the offensive duo of Nighthorse and Iribarren, who now have a combined tally of 16 goals between them, made sure that the favourites took the game 2-1. Veriasod also had a homestand, coincidentally against fourth placed Tikariot City FC and the Owls' defender Darcy Watts helped the guests to pull even with the Lakers on points and give Baraldhur a four-point lead over Veriasod.

Having passed the quarter mark of the season, let's have a look at how things are shaping up and also how our season predictions so far are holding up, and here's a sneak preview, not very well. So we had earmarked Port Tacassam as champions this year, so far their are in eighth position, twelve points behind Port Rhovanyon, which after just twelve games is, let's be honest, a lot. Also severely underachieving are Miruan (predicted 5th, currently 9th), Parakleion (3rd / 15th), Kyethas (7th / 17th), Anhedron (8th / 18th) and even more so Valnohar that we had seen in sixth position before the season started and now are stuck in 22nd. On the other hand saying that Ysgrann Bay, which we had thought were predestined for last spot, sitting in fifth position is surprising is likely the understatement of the season so far. Guillarim, predicted to be 23rd, are tenth in another surprise performance so far and to see Gamsk and Avanaroch safely in the middle of the pack and even more so Tikariot City in fourth, well, neither of them shine a very positive light on us. But that's what makes things so interesting and also shows how dense the competition in the TPL is, anybody can literally beat anybody, so it makes it all the more interesting and exciting to follow what will be next!

Morannon Athletic FC 0-0 Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC

And so it has happened. Again. The living proof that the Port Rhovanyon AFC is in fact human. In a very rare occurrence this season, the Kraken had to accept defeat when vising Gamsk County decided that they were bent on scoring one more goal than them. Affairs in a rainy Port Rhovanyon began right after the taste of the hosts, when Jules Haney hit a runaway ball of Darwin Spielman for the by now almost customary 1-0 lead of the Rhovanyn after 19 minutes. Gamsk, however, had shown several times this season already that if all the pieces fall right, they have the talent to beat anybody in the league and a beautiful shot from 25 metres out by Taylor Herrera proved that after 27 minutes, a half-volley that did give Brian Merson no chance whatsoever to get his hand on the ball. The chilly temperatures and pouring rain were not exactly conducive to an exciting game, though, where most of the possession happened about ten minutes to either side of the centre third with very few created chances for most of the second half until Spielman had the opportunity to iron out his earlier mistake. Mattheiss brought a low cross into the box that Herrera tried to take volley. He did not hit it right and it bounced off a Port Rhovanyon defender, fell to Spielman and he just let it rip, leaving Merson no chance for a save, sealing the Kraken's second defeat of the season.

Fortunately for them, though, Baraldhur also decided to have a bad day at the office, falling to Anhedron 1-0, failing to narrow down the five point lead. Behind them, however, there was some unexpected movement! The Tikariot City FC added to its surprising point haul of the season, squeezing past Eivora Athletic in an exciting game that saw most of the action at the end of the two halves. Donovan Floyd had put the Snowy Owls into the lead in the 29th minutes, but Michael Gaffigan equalized in the 43rd minute, benefitting from a rare mistake by goalie Sebastian Garner, who failed to hold on to a freekick by Harold Chelmsford. Just moments before the half-time whistle, however, 17-year-old Parramore Haigh chased a long ball from Jackson Burgess, tipping it just past a rushing Sebastian Garner to coolly slot it into the goal to give the hosts the lead for a second time in the game. Then after a mostly apathetic second half, though, Angus Guinness was on the receiving end of a sharp cross by George Hancock, allowing him to jump higher than any defender and placing a header right past the post to equalize again. The team from the Emerald Coast must have been still celebrating when a quick series of passes from the kick off brought the ball to Silas Hendersley and only 14 seconds after the equalizer, the game was won 3-2, advancing Tikariot City to the third position in the table, courtesy of Veriasod losing out 1-2 in Miruan, a result that the Carathyr Emeralds also used to slide into fourth after an away win in Nagoush.

Morannon still are playing squirrels at the bottom, reeling in another point through a goalless draw against the Ysgrann Bay Eagles, still trailing Zhelmagor by two points after the Society held Bul Khungur to the same result. Nagoush slid down a position to 22nd, swapping places with the Valnohar Rovers that shot the Pyathora Mariners out of Weston Road with 4-1, including a hattrick by veteran striker Bentley Carson.

After suffering a heavy 1-4 defeat by the hands of the Valnohar Rovers last week, the Pyathora Mariners were baying for redemption at the Southside Docks against Port Rhovanyon, who in turn were also coming off a surprise defeat. But Baraldhur had different ideas than the hosts, vastly different. Through two goals of Jules Haney and one by Jayden Irvine the guests were up 3-0 by half-time, giving the Mariners a faint idea that things were not quite going as planned and any hopes for a miraculous return were put to rest when Haney added a third in the 65th minute, dropping the Mariners to 9th in the table. Port Rhovanyon on the other hand has a new hunter breathing down their neck, well, not exactly down their neck, because the distance is a cushy six points now, after Baraldhur dropped two points to Valnohar thanks to a late goal of Bentley Carson and Tikariot City kept beating the already comatose horse that is the Parakleion Firebirds when Silas Hendersley added to his goal tally with a late first-half goal, giving them the edge and with that pushing them past Baraldhur into second spot. After ten consecutive weeks in the top 5, the Veriasod Lakers dropped out after a disappointing 2-2 against Gamsk, allowing the ever surprising Ysgrann Bay Eagles to flap back into fifth courtesy of Ezekiel Harris, whose goal secured a 1-0 victory over the Nagoush FC.

As we already are at the bottom of the table with Nagoush still in third to last position, Morannon managed to extend their unbeaten streak to four after holding the Fort Viljan Northern FC to a 2-2 draw, now sitting only one pount behind The Zhelmagor Society, who lost 2-0 in Oriannor, and two behind Nagoush, while Valnohar despite the draw in Baraldhur has not managed to leave the relegation spots, trailing Ancarea by one point. Now I had mentioned the Parakleion Firebirds as comatose horse, so let's have a quick look at their season so far. After winning two consecutive championships they had hoped to break into the very elusive circle of teams that have managed to make it three in a row, but instead they are currently sitting in a more than disappointing 18th position, three points from the relegation zone and nine off an international spot, even 18 off the first. This has cost coach Leland Cramortie his job, now being replaced by 76 year old legend Aloysius Harrowgate, who had been in retirement for four years and now seems to be the man the Firebirds management sees as the steadying hand the team requires to steady the ship

So round 2 of the Cup of Tikariot is over and we already have been able to witness a couple of upsets, among them three TPL teams out of contention. Granted, one was inevitable as Gamsk County and Nagoush FC were drawn together, with the home team victorious 1-0, the other two came far more surprising, though. The Oriannor Mountaineers had to travel to the far east, namely the Soharrian capital Saevaroy, where they fell 1-2 to the Town FC, but they were not the biggest sensation, as that one happened in Baraldhur, where the current third of the Tikariotian Premier League took a sensational 0-1 defeat to the dead last of Fourth Division B, the Sothross Legion! Both Morannon Athletic and Avanaroch White Wings were lucky, needing to go through extra time to avoid elimination by non-league teams, Khangein Athletic and Golrook AFC respectively.
A quick count of the remaining teams arrived at the following census: 22 TPL teams, 18 second division, 7 third division, 5 fourth division and 12 non-league teams are still in the running, in a few weeks we will know how the tides may have shifted!

The clockwork that is the Port Rhovanyon AFC continues to tick with amazing precision. After the brief blimp against Gamsk they thrashed Pyathora and this week were to take on 6th placed Veriasod and while the game was nothing exciting, the most important thing for the Kraken was that they came out the winners courtesy of a long goal by Jules Haney, who increased his tally to eight goals for the season. The Tikariot City FC also continued their high flying course of the past few weeks with a very convincing 3-0 victory over the Bul Khungur Miners, finally reaching a positive goal difference as odd as this may seem for a second-placed team. Continuing down the table, Baraldhur took a painful loss out west in Acrassia, where the Pyathora Mariners were able to redeem themselves in front of a home crowd, Graydon Sheffield and Donald Cisneros taking care of business. The Carathyr Emeralds were able to take advantage of this mishap, sliding past into third position after beating the Guillarim Blades 2-1 in Frahaul. Ysgrann Bay once more provided offensive joy with a four-goal game in Avanaroch, splitting the goals evenly and missing an opportunity to pass Baraldhur as well, in turn being relegated to "commoner" status as the Port Tacassam FC took over the Taça das Confederações qualification spot with a narrow 1-0 win over the Anhedron Wanderers.

Now looking at the other end of business affairs, Morannon Athletic's days as squirrel collecting a point here and there came to a crashing halt when 23rd-position Zhelmagor Society turned up the heat with a resounding 4-2 victory, which slunk them past Nagoush FC that could not overcome the Fort Viljan Northern FC, who stayed victorious 1-0. Valnohar, though, did manage to escape the red zone thanks to a goalless draw against the Kyethas Rivermen, pulling the Ancarea FC into the depths, who fell 1-0 to the Oriannor Mountaineers.

Match day 16 was a round full of redemption and reminders that certain teams indeed are still mortal. Best example was the first match on the marching order, pitting Baraldhur AFC and Port Rhovanyon AFC against each other and it was the hard-fought battle many spectator were expecting it to be and then some. Creighton Park was, predictably, sold out and the atmosphere was electrifying and both teams' play reflected that, pulling out all stops from the get-go. The two main reasons why this game did not end up a slug-fest were Romain Chatelet and Brian Merson, who both had plenty to do and made the most out of it to showcase their talents. Controversy struck in the 20th minute when a shot by David Hardcastle hit the underside of the crossbar, bounced down and out of the goal and it took a check of the goal-line technology to determine that the ball indeed was in and this brought even more of a spark into the game, albeit not the one the managers wanted reflected in seven yellow cards in the first half alone. Thankfully the players had calmed down for the second half, avoiding any ejections, while keeping the tempo up and continuing to give both keepers a lot of opportunities to prove why they are regarded among the best of their trade in the TPL. Chatelet in the end won this duel, as Morris Nighthorse added another goal to his tally, bringing it to eleven, for the 2-0 final.

Taking a look at the spots eligible for international competitions, the Tikariot City FC was held to a 1-1 by the Oriannor Mountaineers, but managed to hold on to their second spot, also highlighting an interesting phenomenon this season so far. Whenever Port Rhovanyon dropped points so far, the immediate pursuants did as well, so they are still five points up in the standings. Baraldhur used their win to take back their third position after Carathyr suffered a surprising 2-0 home loss against the Anhedron Wanderers, where Crispin Hackett and Jesson Morrison scored with a surprise attack double punch in the fifth and sixth minute to effectively win the game. Port Tacassam continued their successful streak with a 3-1 win over the Valnohar Rovers, where Oliver del Rosso scored twice, which also allowed them to pass the Emeralds, who now sit in 5th spot.

Bottom dwellers Morannon struck another L when Martin Grieves struck in the 73rd minute, giving the Ancarea FC not just the edge, but also their ticket back out of the relegation spots, passing Valnohar (who are back in 21st) and also the Parakleion Firebirds, who still have an abysmal season, losing 2-0 to Gamsk. Zhelmagor lost to Nagoush 0-1, but the only effect that had was the two teams switching spots, but in the end not doing much in either's plight to make serious progress to avoid relegation.

Business as usual in Port Rhovanyon. The Oceanview Park so far has been maybe not a fortress, but a pretty secure place for the AFC and this weekend they added a seventh win in the ninth game with a commandeering 4-0 win over struggling Eivora Athletic. Match winner without a doubt was Jules Haney, who added another three goals to his count, now standing at eleven, eight of which came in the last five games, so to say he is on fire is an understatement. Jardel Connolly's 13th goal in conjunction with Haney's meant that the game was pretty much over by the 39th minute of the game. Another young striker that is quickly making a name for himself is Parramore Haigh, who has been Tikariot City FC's leading scorer so far and with the two he managed to add in the Snowy Owls' 4-0 victory over dead-last Morannon Athletic, whose troubles are getting bigger by the week.

Baraldhur AFC was the big loser of this match day with a daunting 3-0 loss at home to the Kyethas Rivermen and Ainsley Wilton's two goals within ten minutes of each other surely hurt. Port Tacassam FC managed to hold on to their fourth position despite a 3-1 loss in Pyathora, but what is remarkable from this game is that Lawrence Bowden (twice) and Giovanni Vacarese scored three times within just three minutes, which is definitely not something one sees every day. Fifth-placed Carathyr were in a similar position, losing 3-1 in Valnohar and being able to hold on to their spot, which says a lot about how in sync a lot of these teams were these days, with Ysgrann Bay and Miruan losing as well.

At the bottom we already covered Morannon's ill-fated campaign, which at least did not see the gap to 23rd placed Nagoush FC grow any wider, as the Ancarea FC managed to sneak in a narrow 1-0 win and The Zhelmagor Society salvaged a 2-2 draw in Avanaroch. And as already mentioned, the Valnohar Rovers beat Carathyr, but still even that was not enough to get them out of the relegation zone.

The Kyethas Rivermen are turning into the nightmare for the leading teams. Only one week after sweeping Baraldhur out of their stadium 3-0, they now managed to hold Port Rhovanyon AFC to a 1-1 draw at Scorross Park on the Kyethas riverfront right at the confluence of the Thorgelver and Thorguard Fork. For the first time in a long time, though, a draw by the Kraken did not go hand in hand with the pursuing teams to drop points as well, but the Tikariot City FC beat Nagoush 1-0 in Taeria, bringing them within three points of the leaders while staying five ahead of the Baraldhur AFC that managed to bounce back with a 3-1 win in Port Tacassam, toppling the Rams out of the international spots back into sixth position, also thanks to two goals by Gaizka Iribarren and one by Morris Nighthorse, which now brings the forward duo's tally to 21 and as they are playing in a 4-3-3 formation, if David Hardcastle is added to it, the trio has scored 26 goals out of 32 and with that more than 16 TPL teams have managed to score as teams!

The Carathyr Emeralds also are still going hand in hand with Port Tacassam, also losing in sync with them, this time at home to the Pyathora Mariners, dropping into the seventh spot in the table. The beneficiaries of these two were the Pyathora Mariners and surprisingly the Oriannor Mountaineers, who slowly, but surely snuck up the standings and a 2-0 over Gamsk County courtesy of a Ashleigh Sweeney brace has now brought them into fifth position.

On the downside Morannon is just digging deeper and deeper, losing 2-0 at home against Miruan City, only benefitting from Nagoush again losing, this time to Tikariot City, and Zhelmagor again drawing, this time against Guillarim. This means that Morannon is five points behind Nagoush, six behind Zhelmagor and already ten behind Bul Khungur, who have managed to drop into the relegation zone after another heavy 1-3 defeat to the Veriasod Lakers, and Fort Viljan, with an even heftier loss to Anhedron at 1-4. The Valnohar Rovers, though, have managed to escape 21st position, jumping four spots to 17th thanks to a resounding 4-0 win in Ysgrann Bay.

Guillarim Blades FC 0-2 Ancarea FC (Grieves 80, McCulloch 84)

Experts are not quite unanimous if the loss of the Port Rhovanyon AFC against the Parakleion Firebirds should be chalked up to the Kraken finally showing cracks in their previous almost impenetrable facade or to the Firebirds finally remembering how to play proper football. Either way, Jack Britton's 3rd minute goal hit the hosts completely unprepared and allowed the Firebirds to very efficiently park the bus after, mounting a very formidable, if not very attractive defensive wall that frustrated both Port Rhovanyon and the fans yet together with an incredible match for Parakleion goalie Cameron Whelan ensured that the hosts went pointless for the fourth time this season. This automatically shifted all eyes to Tikariot City, where the Snowy Owls were receiving the Avanaroch White Wings and courtesy of a Silas Hendersley brace took away all three points in a 2-1 win, putting them even with the formerly runaway leaders of the TPL, something that only very few fans and pundits alike would have predicted at the beginning of the season. The Baraldhur AFC failed to take advantage of the situation once again, squandering a 2-0 lead to two late goals by Tomlinson and Nancarrow, allowing the Carathyr Emeralds to steal one point in their quest to return to the international qualifying spots, which are still occupied by the Pyathora Mariners, who beat the Ysgrann Bay Eagles 3-0, and the Oriannor Mountaineers courtesy of a 2-0 away win in Veriasod.

Morannon Athletic's tale on the end continues to be a tragic one, with a 1-1 in Gamsk still leaving them at one meagre weak to the season so far and a total of 10 points, now seven points behind the Nagoush FC that managed to sneak a 2-1 win over Miruan City, which they had hoped would gain them at least one spot, but The Zhelmagor Society also came off a 2-1 winner in Anhedron, giving the Wanderers' ambitions to climb further in the standings a dent. No changes also in 21st, where the Bul Khungur Miners fell 2-0 in Eivora, preventing them from capitalizing from Fort Viljan only managing to win one point in Valnohar.

Carathyr Emeralds FC 2-0 Kyethas Rivermen FC (Nancarrow 1, Tomlinson 42)
Oriannor Mountaineers FC 2-0 Eivora Athletic FC (Sweeney 50, Cartwright 54)

Match day 20 put Port Rhovanyon's loss against Parakleion a bit more into perspective as Parakleion suffered a heavy loss, more on that in a moment and the Kraken's trip out west to Port Tacassam ended up in another desaster. Things already went off badly when Adrian Grimaud and Travis Dolan put the Rams ahead by two goals within the first 20 minutes, but things went from bad to worse right after Jardel Connolly pulled Port Rhovanyon back by one in the 27th minute, because Port Tacassam hit another double-shot through Abn Faar and del Rosso in the 28th and 29th minute, making it 4-1! Port Rhovanyon were not done yet, showing some very commendable spirit and Connolly pulled back one more in the 43rd minute. The second half was marked by a deluge of attacks by the guests, which tried everything, but Randall Gonzalez was in top form and the only goal he conceded was by Jules Haney in the 52nd and even some stoppage time excursions by Brian Merson into the Port Tacassam box did not yield the equalizer. At the same time fans were watching the scoreboard for news out of Guillarim, where the Blades were taking on Tikariot City FC and news were not good for the Rhovanyn, as Silas Hendersley and Jackson Burgess brought an early lead for hte Snowy Owls, which Sharman Kalhor could only cut down by one, bringing the first lead change of the season with Tikariot City pulling ahead of Port Rhovanyon! For a change Baraldhur AFC did not choke up in the light of Port Rhovanyon losing a game and thrashed Ysgrann bay 4-0, while Pyathora could not get past a 1-1 in Fort Viljan, allowing Oriannor to pass them by courtesy of a 2-0 win over Eivora.

Morannon are still actively working on a direct relegation back into the second division with a 0-1 home loss against Veriasod, Nagoush did the exact same thing just against Gamsk and Zhelmagor made it three 0-1 home losses as they fell to Valnohar. The Bul Khungur Miners, though, showed a truly impressive bounce back with an absolutely commanding 4-1 victory over Parakleion with Gary Conway leading the way, scoring all four goals of the game! This catapulted them up by two positions, switching spots with the Guillarim Blades with the Fort Viljan Northern SC staying right where they were between them.

BREAKING NEWS!


After the immense success of the Cup of Tikariot and rising interest from non-league teams, the Tikariot Premier League has announced a restructuring of the league pyramid!

The third round of the Cup of Tikariot has produced its first sensation, happening in one of the most remote regions of Khazagh and if you know the province, then you know that remote here means really in the middle of nowhere. Local Nalkhand FC welcomed the reigning TPL champions Parakleion Firebirds, who already are having a pretty dreadful season and fully rained on their parade with a sensational 3-2 upset that makes Nalkhand one of only two remaining non-league sides in the competition after Khazagh United FC, coincidentally also from Khazagh, eliminated fellow minnows Pedipan Paragon by 2-0. The Paratha Palms almost joined them, but fell to the Cape Shetma Falcons in a penalty shootout, while the Cellinfigna Kingsmen also made it into extra time, but ultimately lost against the Sothross Legion. Other TPL teams biting the proverbial dust in this round were The Zhelmagor Society, losing in Avanaroch to the First FC, the Avanaroch White Wings, ironic, I know, that were wrestled down by the Leriagog Blackhearts in extra time, just like the First FC of Avanaroch from the third division. Port Tacassam FC also fell to a third division side in Carhan Knights, Ancarea FC missed out against Alcassar United from Division 2, Carathyr couldn't keep Port Rhovanyon down and current table leaders Tikariot City FC lost 1-0 against the Fort Viljan Northern FC.
In a quick roundup of who is left, 13 TPL teams, ten from the second division, four from the third, three from the fourth and the two already mentioned non-league teams make it 32 total as we are gearing up for the Round of 16 and the nation waiting to see, if there could be more upsets in the future!

Just ascended to the much coveted number one spot in the country, Tikariot City FC had to travel out west, more precisely to Anhedron and the Wanderers put a very quick end to the Snowy Owls place in the sun, or more precisely Callum Baines, who scored all three goals in the 3-0 thrashing, sending the Dhaencunorians right back to the number two spot, because the Port Rhovanyon AFC managed to recover from the shocking two losses in a row by sending the Bul Khungur Miners right straight back into the relegation zone with a never-endangered 3-1 win themselves. Baraldhur did what they usually do when one of the top teams stumble, they fail to win their own game, as once again on this matchday, where the Fort Viljan Northern FC held them to a goalless draw, allowing the Oriannor Mountaineers to draw even with them on points courtesy of another woeful performance by the Parakleion Firebirds, falling 0-1 at home. And to round off the international qualification spots, the Pyathora Mariners did their due diligence by sending The Zhelmagor Society back home with a 2-0 loss, securing their fifth position.

Morannon Athletic make me feel like groundhog day, another day, another loss, their 13th already, this time 1-4 in Eivora, with two Dean Berrymore goals, but thanks to the Zhelmagor loss they at least remained "only" remain eight points behind them, however Nagoush's surprising 2-1 win in Veriasod allowed them to leapfrog Zhelmagor into 22nd position. As mentioned before Bul Khungur fell back into the relegation zone, suffering from the Guillarim Blades taking all three points home from Miruan City.

Having just returned to the place in the sun, the Port Rhovanyon AFC proceeded right away to stumble again, being held to a disappointing 1-1 draw in Carathyr, but a second loss in a row for Tikariot City FC, this time at the hands of the Valnohar Rovers. The 1-3 loss also means a continued drop in goal difference, which in a league this tight can be worth gold, especially with the Baraldhur AFC gaining steam again, leaving The Zhelmagor Society not a wisp of a chance in their 4-1 won, with three goals coming from teen sensation Morris Nighthorse, who is really lightning up the league so far this season! The Oriannor Mountaineers however lost their fourth position to Pyathora due to a 2-2 draw against Bul Khungur while the Mariners left Ancarea goal and scoreless with a 2-0 away win.

No teams managed to escape the drop zone on match day 22, with Morannon going down 1-3 against Parakleion, Zhelmagor, as already mentioned, losing 1-4 themselves and Bul Khungur at least managing a respectable draw away in Oriannor. The winner of the round, though, is undoubtedly Nagoush FC, who won again, this time 1-0 against Eivora, bringing them level on points with Kyethas as well, but there are only three points between the 15th and 22nd of the table, which promises a very, very hot relegation battle this season.

One match, though, has to be mentioned separately and it once more includes the Ysgrann Bay Eagles, who again were part of an offensive spectacle, falling 3-5 to the Port Tacassam FC, not doing their goal difference any favours, which is -14 now, but they also have scored the fourth most goals in the league, so at least the fans love this team!

And the Curse of the Snowy Owl continues. Ever since reaching the top of the table, Tikariot City FC has been on the way down and match day 23 presented them with the unthankful trip to Pyathora to take on the Mariners and their record of the last three games matches the result of the match - 0-3. Two goals by national team striker Graydon Sheffield and one by his fellow national team mate Zion Grimes sealed the deal for the Mariners that cement their fourth place in the table and now are only one point behind Tikariot City that lost its second position to the Baraldhur AFC that had no problems with the Ancarea FC in an easy 2-0 victory. The current league leaders from Port Rhovanyon also recorded another win, this time a 3-1 over the Oriannor Mountaineers, with Jardel Connolly increasing his tally to 18 for the season, that also sent the Khazagh-team out of the qualification spot for the Taça das Confederações. This was filled by the Port Tacassam FC after a 2-1 over Fort Viljan, bringing them back into the international positions for the first time since match day 17.

They are on a way to a new record, unfortunately not for the right reasons. With only ten points after 23 games, Morannon Athletic could set a new negative record for least points scored after yet another loss, this time in Bul Khungur, which catapulted the Miners from 22nd right into 17th position. Already 14 points behind a non-relegation spot, the Saburnians' most realistic goal can only be to try to minimize the damage and at least not become the laughing spot of the league, already having been in last position for 21 of 23 match days with one day they were not dead last having been 17th and the other 23rd. The Zhelmagor Society is trying to dangle the proverbial carrot of not coming in last, though, as they fell 1-4 to Kyethas, keeping them eight points ahead of Morannon and five behind Nagoush, who gave the Parakleion Firebirds one of the few brighter spots this season, twelfth is not where the reigning champions had pictured themselves, though. With Bul Khungur on safe ground at least for now, the Avanaroch White Wings fell beneath the line for the first time this season with a 0-2 loss in Eivora, but given that the 16th and 22nd are just a mere three points apart.

One half of the 100th Tikariot Premier League season is over, so time to take a look at what has transpired so far, statistics, analyses, surprises, disappointments and more. Our main TPL correspondents Simon Nighthorse and Ffion Davies have dug deep.

The 100th TPL season has been full of prediction defying performances, both in the positive and negative directions. Before we go into a full analysis of the season so far, here are some fun facts and statistics:

Most goals scored: 51 - Port Rhovanyon AFC
Least goals conceded: 20 - Pyathora Mariners FC/Carathyr Emeralds FC
Best goal difference: +27 - Port Rhovanyon AFC
Least goals scored: 13 - Morannon Athletic FC
Most goals conceded: 53 - Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC
Worst goal difference: -24 - Morannon Athletic FC
Most wins: 15 - Port Rhovanyon AFC
Most draws: 12 - Guillarim Blades FC
Most losses: 15 - Morannon Athletic FC
Least wins: 1 - Morannon Athletic FC
Least draws: 2 - Tikariot City FC/Nagoush FC
Least losses: 4 - Pyathora Mariners FC/Carathyr Emeralds FC
Most wins in a row: 7 - Port Rhovanyon AFC
Longest unbeaten streak: 10 - Tikariot City FC/Oriannor Mountaineers FC/Guillarim Blades FC
Longest winless streak: 12 - Morannon Athletic FC
Most losses in a row: 6 - Nagoush FC
Most draws in a row: 5 - Miruan City FC
Most wins from being behind: 4 - Anhedron Wanderers FC/Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC
Lost losses after leading: 3 - Bul Khungur Miners FC/The Zhelmagor Society FC
Most goals in a game: 9 - Ysgrann Bay-Eivora 5-4 / Port Rhovanyon-Miruan 5-4
Biggest win: 6-0 - Eivora Athletic - Fort Viljan Northern FC


So let's have a look at how the teams have been faring so far and also how they are sitting against our pre-season predictions.

1. Port Rhovanyon AFC (Our prediction: 2nd)
The Kraken have been the dominating team of the season so far, sitting in the top spot for 22 out of 23 match days and currently having a four-point lead over second placed Baraldhur. Arthur Wolseley's very inflexible stance on wanting his team to be as tactically flexible as possible and signing players that fit the system as opposed to fitting the system to whichever players are to be signed has proven extremely efficient and the fact that the offensive duo of Jardel Connolly and Jules Haney have scored a combined 32 goals is an impressive proof (12 teams have scored less goals than these two players). No matter how you look at it, anybody who wants to hoist the championship trophy will have go through Port Rhovanyon first.

2. Baraldhur AFC (Our prediction: 4th)
The Baraldhur AFC has had a season of missed opportunities. Having been the main hunter of Port Rhovanyon for most of the season, they seemed to draw or lose just when the Kraken would also drop point, efficiently preventing them from ever actually catching up with them. That aside they are still enjoying a very good season and have just regained second position in a very tight race for the international qualifying positions. Not unlike Port Rhovanyon, the gem of the Baraldhur lineup is their striker duo of shooting star Morris Nighthorse (16 goals) and Gaizka Iribarren (13 goals).

3. Tikariot City FC (Our prediction: 12th)
Definitely one of the biggest surprises of the season, Tikariot City FC has had a fairly turbulent season so far. Starting out barely above the relegation zone they had an irresistible run of ten unbeaten games that saw them ascend to the top spot for one week after match day 20, showing that they are a team to be reckoned with. Especially since their last top ten finish has been 41 years ago! One of the team's best signings of the pre-season was 17-year old talent Parramore Haigh, who had come up through the academy of the Oriannor Mountaineers FC, but did not see a lot of playing time in his future with a defense-first 4-5-1 system, and Ashleigh Sweeney having the number one spot firmly in his grasp, and has scored ten goals for the Snowy Owls so far. Midfielder Parris Langley also has exceeded expectations and has been nominated for the squad of the Baptism of Fire tournament.

4. Pyathora Mariners FC (Our prediction: 10th)
In a season marked by slight waves in their table position, the Acrassian team is just one point behind Baraldhur and Tikariot City, making them a formidable rival in the battle for the much coveted Liga dos Vencedores qualification spot. Playing out of a very tight and disciplined defense, the Mariners still managed to have the third best goal difference, with Graydon Sheffield leading the way with twelve goals to the season so far. The team has very close ties to the Tikariotian Navy and thus a very sturdy following even on away games, as Navymen stationed throughout Tikariot will travel to see their games whenever they come close.

5. Port Tacassam FC (Our prediction: 1st)
The Rams have been the by far most consistent team of the TPL, finishing outside of the top ten only three times in the last 53 years and this season does not seem to be any exception to this amazing rule. For most of the season hovering just between 4th and 8th they have just moved up into fifth position and with that the qualification spot for the Taça das Confederações, three points behind the Mariners. We had pegged them a title candidate for this season, but especially the unexpectedly strong run of Port Rhovanyon has put this prediction in some serious jeopardy.

6. Oriannor Mountaineers FC (Our prediction: 11th)
Despite our rather lowly prediction, the leader of the all-time table is on a very good way to confirm their surprise fifth position in last year's standings with a strong finish to the first half of the season that has seen them within the international positions for five weeks before just slipping out on match day 23. They are sorely missing the newly found firepower of a Parramore Haigh as their top scorer is Ashleigh Sweeney with seven goals, but the strong defense has enabled them to overcome a lot of opponents.

7. Gamsk County FC (Our prediction: 18th)
One of the season's surprise teams, more pundits had predicted Gamsk to fight against relegation than sitting just two points outside of a spot that would allow them to participate in next year's Taça das Confederações. Led by veteran coach Gunther Strongfoot they have perfected the "fly-under-the-radar" tactic and rarely come into the spotlight, however they are on a good way to matching their best TPL result ever, which was one seventh position eleven years ago.

8. Carathyr Emeralds FC (Our prediction: 14th)
Another TPL heavyweight that has been struggling for many years now seems to be working on some sort of a resurgence, sitting in eighth position despite having been in third and fourth for several weeks earlier this season. Newly appointed coach Jean-Francois Daoust has managed to instill a new strong team spirit, which is founded on a strong defense, they have the least goals conceded together with Pyathora, and with Ashton Tomlinson enjoying the best season of his career so far, the Emeralds are headed for a top ten finish this year.

9. Miruan City FC (Our prediction: 5th)
After a weak start, Miruan City have picked themselves up nicely and have been hovering around the ninth and tenth position for the last few weeks. Their more offensive approach with the addition of Finbar McLoughlin coming over from their local rivals Parakleion has brought them a boost in the scoring department, mostly pushing Atlas Baxter and Elias Wagstaff to higher tallies than ever. Unfortunately the downside is that the defensive side has struggled and they have the most goals conceded of the top thirteen teams.

10. Veriasod Lakers FC (Our prediction: 13th)
The polar opposite of Miruan, the Veriasod Lakers went off to an explosive start, sitting in third position for almost two months before going on slide that had them sit in eleventh and twelfth position, which is still above our prediction, but given how well they had started the season, it still feels like a disappointment in the end. The Lakers are one of the most defense-minded teams in the league and if they could get Kieran Beaumont to catch up to Trey Burnett's eleven season goals, they could recover the lost ground and maybe cause a surprise or two.

11. Anhedron Wanderers FC (Our prediction: 8th)
The Wanderers have been upper middle of the pack for the last couple of seasons and seem to be right on par for another season of the same. As to be expected, they are a very tight and disciplined unit under Raphael Secours' aegis and after an abysmal start have shown this spirit by continuously climbing up the table. The team definitely has the potential to reach even higher, especially if the scoring duo of Morrison and Mosnyk can preserve their fine form.

12. Parakleion Firebirds FC (Our prediction: 3rd)
So far it has been a thoroughly forgetful season for the reigning champions, having been in the top half of the table three out of 23 weeks and they have been the only team so far to sack their coach. Leland Cramortie has since found a new position with the Salmon Head FC in Northwest Kalactin, making him the first Tikariotian coach to move abroad. Since then 76 year old legend Aloysius Harrowgate has returned from retirement and while some see his training methods and tactics as somewhat archaic, they seem to have instilled a new sense of unity in the team as the results have seen some improvements since.

13. Valnohar Rovers FC (Our prediction: 6th)
Having been one of the most consistently upper-table teams in recent seasons, the Valnohar Rovers have had a very challenging season so far, having spent more than half of it in the relegation zone. Despite most pundits' expectations, the club held on to coach Jimmy Hormaz and once more his old adage of "slow and steady" seems be coming true as the Rovers have been slowly but steadily collecting points and seem to be on the rise.

14. Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC (Our prediction: 24th)
Pegged as the number one candidate for relegation, the unanimous opinion on the Ysgrann Bay Eagles is that they are an absolute spectacle that has made the league a better place. Their devil-may-care attitude instilled into the team by new coach Nolan Carpenter and new signings Iain Aspinall and Jenson McTierney have guaranteed that when the Eagles come to town, you'll get to see goals. Lots of goals. Despite being 14th in the table, they scored the third most goals and conceded the most in the league and both Aspinall and McTierney are representing Tikariot at the Baptism of Fire tournament in Valladares and Chromatika. Given the unpredictability so far experts are not sure yet, if Ysgrann Bay is going to be able to sustain their pace, but one thing is for sure, if they go down, they will go with all guns blazing.

15. Eivora Athletic FC (Our prediction: 9th)
Few people would have expected Eivora this far down in the table and the worst thing about it is that it does not just appear to be a slump, because they have been hovering around this position for a long time now. There have been some so-called experts calling for Carl Halvorson to be sacked, but given that he has been with the team for 19 seasons now and so far has had the team in very steady waters for a long time seems to be working in his favour for now, but you never know when management might be pulling the plug in order to avoid getting mired in the relegation battle.

16. Kyethas Rivermen FC (Our prediction: 7th)
In a similar boat as Eivora, the Kyethas Rivermen have been dangerously close to the red zone for most of the season, which is rumoured to be costing Julius Akwanyama his job very soon. Despite a decent defensive performance, their main problems have been upfront, with their top scorer Ainsley Wilton sitting at a meagre seven goals. Whatever it will be, the Rivermen definitely will need a healthy boost of self confidence and spirit to pull themselves out of this hole, as they are only two points ahead of the relegation zone.

17. Bul Khungur Miners FC (Our prediction: 15th)
If you want a turbulent season, look no further than the Bul Khungur Miners. They've been fourth, they've been 22nd and they are desperate to dig themselves out of this almost unparalleled downward spiral that saw them drop from fourth to 16th in a matter of only four weeks. And if it was not for the twelve goals of Gary Conway, who knows where they might be standing now. Coach Jeremiah Hopscott, who had been sacked by Baraldhur after the last season, now finds himself out of a job again with management hoping to salvage the season. Edmundo Sturgill from Northwest Kalactin has been appointed headcoach, who had helped lead his old team to promotion last season, a defense-minded coach, which might be exactly what the Miners need to stay up. He also is the first non Tikariotian coach to come into the TPL.

18. Fort Viljan Northern FC (Our prediction: 20th)
Everybody knew that it would be a tough season for the Fort Viljan Northern FC and so far they have been surviving. After their last relegation management decided to go for a full remodel, focusing on young players, mostly from the province of Viljamark, which has brought them back to the TPL and so far has had reasonable success in the top flight as well. With the exception of the first couple of weeks, the Warriors have managed to stay out of the relegation zone, hoping that the increasing experience is going to help them build on their performance so far and rather look up than down. The striker duo of Jesse Liljestrand and Pontus Lundin have combined for 20 of the team's 34 goals, so their importance cannot be highlighted enough.

19. Guillarim Blades FC (Our prediction: 23rd)
Sitting 14th in the all-timem table, the Guillarim Blades are the highest ranked team to never have held the championship trophy, a kind of sad record in its own, especially since this will be their 92nd season in the TPL. Their best ever position, a second place, has been 95 years ago and in the last 23 years they have been relegated eight times from the League, so pegging them as a prime candidate for relegation is not a stretch. And so far this season has been going reasonably well with only one week on a relegation spot. Granted, they have not been far from the zone in over two months, but all it takes is to stay above.

20. Ancarea FC (Our prediction: 21st)
Off to a phenomenal start that had them in the top ten for the first eight weeks, the Ancarea FC settled in where most observers were expecting them, just above the relegation zone. Outside of their opening games they have mostly flown under the radar, which likely also is due to their offense not being much of a threat with only three teams having scored less often than them. Their fourth season in the TPL looks like is going to be their hardest as well as the balanced approach of coach Graeme Skulland, who had led them into the top flight, has been tipping towards the negative so far.

21. Avanaroch White Wings FC (Our prediction: 19th)
Another team with a good start to the season that then ended up falling apart. Having occupied third position after week two and four, the White Wings have been on a steady decline to arrive on a relegation spot just at mid-term for the season. Given that Raymond Cartwright is still in his first season as a coach could be called birthing pains, but the opening of the season had been very promising, so we will have to see for how long the patience of management will still last, especially with their offense being the second worst in the league.

22. Nagoush FC (Our prediction: 22nd)
Having just returned to the TPL, everybody knew that it would be a tough season for the Nagoush FC from the beginning. After the first few weeks had given them faint hope that they might manage to stay in the safe zone for longer, they have been a firm tenant of the relegation zone since match day twelve, but at least they are only three points away from 16th, their bad goal difference nonewithstanding, so there still is hope, even though they will have to figure out how to score more goals in order to achieve that.

23. The Zhelmagor Society FC (Our prediction: 16th)
The most mysterious of all teams is in trouble. Following two 16th position finishes in the last two seasons, the Zhelmagor Society has been steadily in the relegation zone since match day six and sitting six points adrift from a safe spot, the outlook is grim. Despite the potential for a lot of offense given Lochlan Blackstone's 4-2-4 formation, it has literally backfired, giving the Society the second worst goals-against stat in the league. With zero communication by the mysterious club and foundation behind them, your guess is as good as ours as to what is happening behind closed doors.

24. Morannon Athletic FC (Our prediction: 17th)
Morannon Athletic is the record champion of the TPL with eleven trophies so far, but all of that is nothing more than a faint memory now, because reality is as bleak as a grain field's chances against a giant locust swarm descending upon it. Having sat in last place for 21 out of 23 match days, eight points behind Zhelmagor and fourteen away from a non-relegation spot, nothing short of a miracle is going save them from immediate re-relegation. And if there are four players that have scored more goals than your whole team, you know you're in deep trouble.

Matt Novak: Good morning, good day, good evening, from wherever you are joining us tonight for our Olympic Roundup of the XIV Olympic Summer Games. My name is Matt Novak and we have a lot of ground to cover, so I hope that fans of certain disciplines are not too mad at us for having to prioritize some things more than others, but for some it is for a very good reason!

Lisa Carr: Oh, three very good reasons in fact! After Nathalie Blanchard had won the first ever medal for Tikariot two days ago in judo, and gold to boot, we were able to add three medals to out count yesterday, all bronze, but only one nation, Kriegiersien, has won more medals at the Olympics so far, so that is something to be proud of!

Julian Sovran: So let's have a look at who has quadrupled our medal count at the Olympics so far and our first stop is Aquatics, so let's hand this right over to Mina Soroka, Angelina Volkova and Sean Minter.

Angelina Volkova: Hello from Orean and we are diving right in with the Women's Synchronized 3 m Springboard final, what a mouthful, and Clarissa Hampstead and Virginia Cassovalo took a surprise bronze medal close behind Viwa Mizoguchi and Kiri Kinoshita from Ko-oren and the runaway winners Jacqueline Briggs-Thompson and Letitia Briggs-Thompson from Chromatika, which is a fantastic result for the two ladies from southern Saburnia and a lovely start to the diving events for Tikariot!

Julian Sovran: Thank you Angelina, over to Josh Abercrombie for the second bit of good news!

Josh Abercrombie: We were hoping for the best and Spencer Buitimea came through. In a very tight sprint to the finish line he crossed it third for Tikariot's second bronze medal, only two seconds behind Liventia's Howard Sargent and six behind Ko-oren's Rowland Fitzgerald! It was a much contested race and Cameron Sanburd, who ended up in 16th position, has done a marvelous job as adjutant to Buitimea aiding him to get towards the front and Spencer staved off some stiff competition to come away on the podium!

Damian Carovalo: And finally Nell Dunbar with our third charm!

Nell Dunbar: Thank you Damian, we actually have two pieces of great news, both coming from Frederick Castlethwaite in the men's 10 m air rifle event. In the qualifying round he scored a new Olympic record with 632.1 and then in the finals he unfortunately could not keep this level of precision up, but still secured another bronze medal for Tikariot!

Lisa Carr: Given that the expectations, or hopes rather, had been for one gold, one silver and one bronze over the total 16 days of the Olympics, I would say that we are on a great path so far! Now just bceause we did not manage to haul in more medals does not mean that we have not had any other positive results to report and for a change we are going to handle most of the results from here tonight. So off we go, Matt.

Matt Novak: We have had the first two heats in the canoe slalom, both men's C-1 and women's K-1 and while Micah Gottfried met all the expectations, which were none, Brenda Gross surprised everybody by qualifying for the next round as 11th! Now we should not get our hopes for a medal up too high, however weirder things have happened, so to say.

Julian Sovran: No weird things in the individual and team dressage, we went into these events with no hopes and with the qualification over, we are still in exactly the same spot, same goes for women's artistic gymnastics or judo this time around. Our only entry in the men's coxless fours repechages narrowly missed advancing as well, so it looks like I am the bearer of solely bad news today!

Damian Carovalo: We will not hold it against you!

Julian Sovran: Maybe not you, not so sure our viewers are going to feel the same...

Damian Carovalo: Well, one can only hope.

Julian Sovran: Our men's coxless eights also missed the direct qualification for the next round and will have to enter the repechage despite being faster than nine directly qualified nations, which at least gives us hope for a successful repechage. Oh! I found a positive one! In the women's lightweight double sculls Cathy Finley and Nona Clifford have won their repechage heat and are advancing, something that neither team in the women's coxless fours and quadruple sculls managed to achieve, unfortunately. The ladies' coxless eights did qualify as third of their heat, though, so I guess I'm not all doom and gloom tonight. Over to you Damian.

Damian Carovalo: So my first assignment is sailing, men's sailboard to be exact, and let's just say that our Vincent Lamian is doing a great job pushing the competition from the back. Men's one-person dinghy race so far stuck in the middle of the pack, women's sailboard race also far behind, women's one-person dinghy next to last, and you thought your results were depressing, Julian?

Julian Sovran: Thanks for accepting your fate. Well, maybe you'll still hit something.

Damian Carovalo: At this moment maybe you?

Julian Sovran: I will take this as my cue to, uh, maybe take a step back from commenting.

Damian Carovalo: Thank you! Onwards to shooting, qualification for men's skeet and Aldon Coker placed 12th, which is a good result, unfortunately only the first six are advancing, and in the women's 10 m air pistol Elizabeth Warrington qualified for the next round as fifth, but ended up dropping one spot to sixth, still a great achievement in this brand new event! Now that I had a positive result, your turn, Lisa!

Lisa Carr: I am not sure if I should feel honoured to get to dig into the next few or not, but we stay with shooting and the women's skeet qualification and here Kimberly Rentz missed the shoot-off by just one point, which is really frustrating, however is still worlds better than our skateboarding results, where our best position in the qualifying round is 40th, our shortboarders have not fared much better men and women alike, where the women at least did manage to come in second in their respective heats, but still not even close to actually qualifying.

Matt Novak: Our women's archery team has had a wonderful run, eliminating the Royal Kingdom of Quebec and the Vilitan Union to advance to the semi finals, but then lost against the eventual gold medal winners Krytenia and then also West Phoenicia in the bronze medal match, in the end leaving empty handed, but still a great achievement to eliminate theh #4 and 5 seeds of the knockout stage. Should I quite while I ahead?

Julian Sovran: No, you're continuing!

Matt Novak: Alright, Men's 200m freestyle, Daniel Morrison as best entry 49th. Men's 100m backstroke, 45th for Yahir Ramanah. Women's 1500m freestyle, Michaela Burgess 57th. I see now why you wanted me to continue here... Women's 100m backstroke, hah! Fiona Clinton qualifying for the semi finals as 11th just to lose out by three hundredths of a second in the semis. That one hurts!

Damian Carovalo: Next up women's 100m breaststroke and 23rd for Angela Thorne, not bad, but also no cigar--

Lisa Carr: You shouldn't smoke anyways, even less so in a pool.

Damian Carovalo: Aren't we feisty today! Water polo! The men with a 10-8 win over New Waldensia, second win in the second game, good start for my next sector here! Badminton, Luke Ashton with a 2-0 win over Desmond Roman, Kent Davidson 2-1 win over Giles Turncoat, two wins to start off their tournament is a great, well, start! Our doubles on the other hand, yeah let's not talk about them too much here, with the women's singles, though, Lucinda Williams with a 2-1 win, but the doubles here, same deal, two losses. Oh, look at this! Our mixed doubles won both of their games! Unfortunately the fact that they had lost their first two means that they are still eliminated.

Julian Sovran: OK, let's see what I got. Boxing, everybody eliminated, fencing men's individual sabre, all three of our athletes out in the prelims, womens' individual epee, Stania Golovina made it through the prelims into the round of 64, but then that was end of the line for her as well. Still she had a win, so that makes me happy. Ooh, women's football! 1-0 over Megistos! Now they have two wins and one loss and hopefully figure out how to score more than one goal a game. Field hockey looks pretty good, too, on the men's side our team beat Northwest Kalactin with a commanding 6-1 result, while the ladies are still without a loss, 3-1 over Diarcesia.

Lisa Carr: Over to the rugby sevens and a 38-5 over The Sarian and 29-5 over New Waldensia is a great start to our campaign here, great start to my segment as well! Let's see how table tennis has been doing. Men's singles - Larry Moray is on to the round of 32, while Gig Henderson is out, the ladies - both Zina Laxley and Lorna Vandersar have advanced to the round of 32 as well, congratulations here! Mixed doubles, no luck, oh well, I had a pretty good run here! Who is next now? Matt, I think?

Matt Novak: Yep, and beach volleyball is first on my list, one win and one loss for the men, two losses for the ladies, indoors the ladies lose in five sets to the Plane of Possibility and finally ladies' gridiron football and we beat Liventia 13-10 for a good first ever official game, which is not bad at all, I would say. Oh, found more! 3x3 basketball, our men are starting out with a loss, while our ladies now with one win and one loss. Then in regular basketball, though, our gents with a nice and clear 102-76 over Lovisa and for the ladies softball we are going 3 and 0 with a 6-2 over Krytenia, bringing our little tour d'Olympique to a positive end.

Julian Sovran: As you can see there is so much going on here, it is hard to keep track and day 3 is going to be even busier with more medals to be had, so see you all tomorrow, hopefully with more good news!

Carson 55 - McKinley 39


The second half of the season kicked off in similar fashion as the first for leading Port Rhovanyon AFC, with a never endangered 2-0 away win in Ysgrann Bay. Contrary to many games of the Eagles, this was not a particularly spectacular affair, with the tactical discipline of the Kraken snuffing almost any offensive attempts of their opponents and after Mac Salt's first half goal they were more or less cruising through the game, having almost complete control, leading up to a late goal by Jayden Irvine to seal the deal.

The Baraldhur AFC tried to keep up with the team from the capital, traveling to severely slumping Tikariot City to take on the FC but things did not quite go as planned as Hendersley, Haigh and Cowan gave the Snowy Owls a much needed breather after three consecutive losses and let them recapture second position in the table. To add insult to injury, the draw of the Pyathora Mariners in Miruan also meant that they dropped another spot to fourth due to the goal difference, a fact that was only partially sweetened by fifth-placed Port Tacassam FC only managing a tough draw in Zhelmagor themselves keeping them at bay.

The Oriannor Mountaineers would have had a great opportunity to pass the Rams with a win in Morannon, but the Grasshoppers managed to secure their only second win in 24 games with a 3-2 win that nobody really expected after twelve winless games in a row. The draw of the Society and Nagoush's 1-2 loss to the Bul Khungur Miners also meant that Athletic was able to gain two and three points on them respectively in their Herculean effort to stave off relegation, a fact that was aided by the Avanaroch White Wings dropping 0-1 to the Firebirds who seem to be on the up and up of late, but Ancarea, Guillarim, Fort Viljan and Bul Khungur won their respective matches as well, giving them a net gain of just one point to the safe spots of the table.

Myers 18, Bowden 48, Sheffield 55, Roth 56


Match day 25 set several things back into order. That Port Rhovanyon is still dominating the season not so much, but their 2-0 win over Morannon Athletic, with both goals courtesy of Jules Haney, put the Saburnians back into their place, much to the dismay of a lot of independent observers. Tikariot City FC was not able to hold on to their second position anymore, as they suffered a harsh 1-4 defeat in Kyethas, where Robert Lucero delivered an outstanding game crowned by three goals. There were two main beneficiaries of this result, namely the Pyathora Mariners that pulled off a commanding 4-0 win over Gamsk County and also the Baraldhur AFC, which had to wait all the way until the 89th minute, though, to get off the edges of their seats when Morris Nighthorse broke the stalemate. Port Tacassam managed to defend their fifth spot with a narrow 1-0 win over the Ancarea FC, which held Oriannor (5-0 against Nagoush) at bay.

On the flipside, as already mentioned Morannon could not grasp the straw they had thought at least in sight and continue to be dead last, now nine points behind The Zhelmagor Society that sneaked in a late 1-0 win over the Carathyr Emeralds, bringing them within one point of the Nagoush FC, which suffered another severe loss in Oriannor. This also opens a four point gap to 21st positioned Avanaroch White Wings, whose clear 3-1 win in Bul Khungur not only secured that, but also kept them in striking distance to the non-relegation positions, which are still as tight as ever with Kyethas winning as only other team of the region, next to draws by Guillarim and Eivora and losses for Ancarea, Guillarim, Fort Viljan and Bul Khungur, seeing positions 15-21 within three points of each other, guaranteeing a lot of thrill in the battle of survival.

MATCHDAY 26

Valnohar Rovers FC 1-1 Eivora Athletic FC
Marriott 86 - Gaffigan 42

Gamsk County FC 1-1 Baraldhur AFC
Reddington 37 - Nighthorse 66

Pyathora Mariners FC 1-0 Veriasod Lakers FC
Herrera 90


After opening a commanding seven point lead over second placed Pyathora, the Port Rhovanyon AFC took a surprise loss in Fort Viljan, where the Northern FC scored three highly important points in their battle against relegation. And the Mariners did not let this opportunity slip through their fingers, scoring a full count with a 90th minute winner over the Veriasod Lakers, also benefitting from both Baraldhur and Tikariot City only managing 1-1 draws against Gamsk and Port Tacassam respectively. This also means that the Rams have dropped out of fifth position, now taken over once again by the Oriannor Mountaineers, who gave Avanaroch's hopes to climb ouf of the red zone with a 2-0 victory.

Moving over to Saburnia, Morannon Athletic definitely can plan for the second division for next season, as another loss was added to the tally, this one even more painful as it was inflicted by the Nagoush FC, or more precisely Madison Hood who scored both goals in their 2-0 win, and Zhelmagor also coming away the winners against the Ysgrann Bay Eagles, opening the gap to them to twelve and thirteen points respectively. As mentioned, Avanaroch lost, but Ancarea's 2-1 win over the Carathyr Emeralds, who now have lost three in a row, Fort Viljan's already mentioned win against Port Rhovanyon and Guillarim at least holding Bul Khungur to a draw, where coincidentally both goals were scored within 40 seconds of each other, so now they sit 16 points back.

Baraldhur AFC 0-2 color=#008000]Veriasod Lakers FC[/color]
Burnett 32, Garrison 81


After match day 27 a lot of positions in the TPL have changed, on both ends of the table. The top of the iceberg, though, remains calm with the Port Rhovanyon AFC bouncing back from their shock loss in Fort Vilkan with a clear 3-1 victory over the Nagoush FC and second-place Pyathora Mariners continuing their great streak of now 13 unbeaten games, keeping them four points behind the leaders. Behind them, though, is where a lot of movement has been taking place, with a five-point lead over a triple pack of teams all sitting at 58 points. This being the Oriannor Mountaineers, whose 2-0 win over the Guillarim Blades catapults them over both Baraldhur (0-2 against the Veriasod Lakers) and the Tikariot City FC (1-6 in Carathyr, where Tristan Nancarrow's three goals in just 15 minutes gave a resounding sign of life from the Emeralds), who are now sitting at an uncomfortable goal difference of -2 after 3-11 goals in the last three games alone.

At the bottom Morannon do not have a lot of fight left these days, falling 1-2 to the Avanaroch White Wings, who in turn managed to use the opportunity to exit the relegation zone, climbing to 20th, pushing the Blades down into the red. The Zhelmagor Society finally edged past Nagoush, with an away win in Fort Viljan, giving them a two point buffer at the moment, the same difference they have to the White Wings in 20th position, giving them hope that they might pull off an almost miracle rescue mission.

The fourth round of the Cup of Tikariot has brought more pain and misery for the TPL teams with six top flight members seeing a premature exit from the competition. The most remarkable feat was the one of the Leriagog Blackhearts from the third division, who beat the Valnohar Rovers 2-1 and are one of only two third division teams left, the other being the Sablecrest FC that managed to overcome Feyrane Town in overtime. Another shock exit was the one of runaway league leaders Port Rhovanyon AFC, who fell victim to the Toroyra FC in a surprisingly clear 0-3 defeat. This leaves only eight Premier League teams, six second and two third division teams in the battle for the first ever Cup of Tikariot!

Match day 28 began with...business as usual. Port Rhovanyon is still marching ahead after giving the Zhelmagor Society's ambitions to escape the red zone a healthy dent after two goals in just four minutes by Connolly and Irvine, potentially spurned by their closest pursuer, the Pyathora Mariners, who also scored twice within five minutes to seal their game against the Parakleion Firebirds with the same result. And behind them things progressed in similar kind, even though with slightly different results per se. Oriannor took home three points from Anhedron with a 2-1 victory, Tikariot City thrashed Ysgrann Bay 5-0, bolstering their hurting goal difference a bit, with Silas Hendersley adding two more goals to his season tally. And finally the Baraldhur AFC also did not show any weaknesses against Eivora Athletic with a comfortable 4-2 win, including a Nighthorse brace. All of this together with a draw between Gamsk and Port Tacassam now opens up a five point gap between fifth and sixth, starting to worry a few managers from teams outside of the international qualification places.

Looking at the relegation zone, we get two draws and two losses with Morannon and Guillarim remaining scoreless against each other, Nagoush and Zhelmagor both falling 0-2 to Avanaroch and Port Rhovanyon respectively, bringing the White Wings into 17th position. But the drop zone is still a highly contested territory, which reaches all the way up to 23th placed Ysgrann Bay, who are sitting at 35 points, then Ancarea with 34, Anhedron, Kyethas, Avanaroch and Bul Khungur with 33, Eivora and Fort Viljan with 31 and Guillarim with 30. Even Zhelmagor with their 28 points and Nagoush with 26 still have reasons to believe that they can get to secure ground, Morannon's 14 points, though, are a pretty clear indicator that their gap likely is too big by now to give them reasonable hopes for avoid relegation.

As in sync as the top five were last week, as much did their paths diverge today. The Port Rhovanyon AFC held off the Avanaroch White Wings with an early goal by Jules Haney to gather up another three points, but behind them results painted a quite different picture. Bul Khungur's Temple of the Crow stadium saw the Miners upset the Pyathora Mariners 2-0, scoring very important goals in their quest to secure their TPL spot for next season, opening up an opportunity for the three teams behind them, who have been even on points, to close the five point gap. Candidate number one, the Oriannor Mountaineers, accepted the challenge and sent the Valnohar Rovers home without a goal or point, while the Baraldhur AFC could not step up to the proverbial plate, being held to a goalless draw by the Parakleion Firebirds, who likely can bury their hopes for a three-peat. The team of the moment, though are the Snowy Owls from Tikariot City, who followed up their 5-0 win over Ysgrann Bay last week with another commanding 5-1 victory over Fort Viljan, at the Citadel of the North on top of it, with a rare hattrick by veteran midfielder Duncan Waller. This puts Baraldhur on the bubble now, now only three points ahead of the Port Tacassam FC that edged out the Veriasod Lakers 1-0.

Last week I had mentioned how close the battle against relegation was and aside from by now hopeless Morannon that dropped another three points at home to the Anhedron Wanderers, there was a lot of movement throughout the whole lower half of the table. Nagoush managed a late 2-1 win over the Guillarim Blades, which allowed the Zhelmagor Society, who kept all three points at Zhelma Keep against Ancarea, to leapfrog the Blades and now sit even on points with the Fort Viljan Northern FC, whose slump continued against Tikariot City. Out of the other teams Ysgrann Bay, Anhedron, Bul Khungur and Eivora managed wins, giving them a bit more breathing room for the next few rounds.

Behind Port Rhovanyon, who needed 89 minutes to move the bus the Ancarea FC had parked to collect three more points, the Pyathora Mariners fought back in an impressive manner, blanking Oriannor 5-0, including two goals by Lawrence Bowden, dealing the Mountaineers a heavy blow in the race for international competition. The TCFC took the opportunity with their third win in a row, this time 3-2 over the Zhelmagor Society with an outstanding Parramore Haigh whose brace now lifts him to 16 goals. The heavy loss of Oriannor was a chance for Baraldhur to reclaim lost ground and push them back into fifth, but once more they choked in the light of an opportunity like this and it took until an 86th-minute Morris Nighthorse goal to equalize and salvage at least one point from their derby against the Bul Khungur Miners. They should send some thank you presents to Eivora, though, more precisely Angus Guinness, whose hattrick kept Port Tacassam at bay, adding one more point of buffer between them.

In the abyss of the league, Morannon Athletic fired off a likely too late sign of life in the form of a 2-0 win in Valnohar, only their third in 30 matches, now putting them 13 points behind Nagoush, who squandered a 2-0 league in Anhedron to in the end be lucky to walk away with one point. Much to their relief, Guillarim could not prevent Avanaroch from taking all three points and the fact that Zhelmagor did not have enough firepower to conquer Tikariot City leaves things unchanged in the remaining relegation slots. Fort Viljan is having one heck of a time right now, recording their fourth loss in a row with a 0-2 in Miruan, benefitting at least somewhat from the Kyethas Rivermen being unable to avoid yet another home loss, this time against the Firebirds, leaving them right in the middle of the mire, an area that Ancarea also is far too familiar with. Above them there is a two point gap now to the next group of five teams, who will be trying to continue to build on their momentum to pull away from the danger zone.

Round of 16

Miruan City FC (1) 1-0 Leriagog Blackhearts FC (3)

Toroyra FC (2) 1-0 Alcassar United FC (2)
Sablecrest FC (3) 1-1 Carhan Knights FC (2) (2-2 AET, 2-3 PKs)


And then there were 8! Five TPL teams and a remarkable three Second Division teams have made it through to the quarter finals and there was one result in particular that raised eyebrows, happening in Guillarim. The Blades have been struggling in the TPL, so their fifth round match up with the Imyalore Arrows from the back-end of the second division was supposed to be a welcome breath of success in the otherwise quite drab season for the Frahulians so far, but they have the undesirable award for "surprise elimination of the round", falling to a narrow 0-1. For both Leriagog and Sablecrest, the last remaining third division representatives, this was the end of the road, which was especially heartbreaking for Sablecrest as they only were narrowly beaten by the Carhan Knights in a penalty shootout!

One would be tempted to say that everything is going as usual on top of the Tikariot Premier League, but past the expected 2-0 win of leading Port Rhovanyon AFC over the Guillarim Blades, things did not quite go as expert had predicted them. It all started with one of the upset of the season so far when the Pyathora Mariners dropped all three points in, out of all places, Morannon. A Jody Bentley brace gave the Kraken a 10-point lead, while Tikariot City failed to capitalize and reclaim the second spot due to a late draw in Ancarea, gifting the boars a point with a defensive mistake that enabled Martin Grieves equalize with his second goal of the game. Then in the match of the week fourth-placed Oriannor and fifth-placed Baraldhur met and the Mountaineers were the big winners of the match day, beating the Nightninjas with a clear 3-0 victory, which was only lightly sweetened for the Balkashi by Port Tacassam being held to a goalless draw by Parakleion.

Morannon's win shortened the distance to Nagoush to ten points as the Taerian team could not hold on even to one point after the Valnohar Rovers managed to sneak an 86th minute goal past James Pope. Guillarim's loss in Port Rhovanyon together with The Zhelmagor Society's 1-1 draw against Miruan put two points between them and allowed the Society to move onto even ground with Fort Viljan, whose misery continued courtesy of Gamsk County holding them to a 0-0, holding them to a fifth winless game in a row.

Port Rhovanyon's run is becoming uncannier with almost every passing week. Not only do they seem to work like a clockwork, they also can almost bank on the competition to choke up. Their 3-2 win in Tikariot City including a brace by Jules Haney set the pace and a crate of lobster must be on the way to Nagoush for their invaluable assistance as the Taerian strugglers managed to beat the Mariners 2-0, giving the Kraken a 13 point lead now. Add to this that the Oriannor Mountaineers also lost their match in Kyethas with the same result and the league should really begin to worry about a non-existent title battle. At least the fight for the international positions is still in full swing, thanks to Baraldhur's 2-0 win over Morannon and Port Tacassam sending Bul Khungur home with a 4-0 loss under their belt. Now one thing about the qualification spots, one of the slots for the IFCF Challengers' Cup will be reserved for the winner of the Cup of Tikariot, so unless the Mariners manage to hoist the cup at the end of it all, the fifth position will not be enough to actually qualify anymore, making Baraldhur's win even more important, now sitting one point behind Oriannor, two behind Tikariot City and three behind Pyathora. Port Tacassam seems to be the only other team that currently seems to have valid ambitions as well, three points behind Baraldhur, but four ahead of Veriasod and Gamsk.

Any hope Morannon may have had after their sensational win against Pyathora the week prior, was thoroughly quenched this season. Not only did they lose, but Nagoush, as mentioned, took three points from Pyathora, which in one fell swoop lifted them from the relegation zone into 20th position, passing Guillarim, 2-3 in Anhedron, Zhelmagor, who lost 1-2 in Gamsk, and Fort Viljan, 1-4 in Veriasod, pushing the Viljamark-side into the red zone for the first time since match day 11.

Match day 33 was an eventful one. Within the top six only one team managed to win, which was a much welcome 3-0 redemption victory of the Pyathora Mariners over still struggling Avanaroch White Wings, while Oriannor and Port Tacassam split points and Baraldhur could only salvage one point thanks to an 85-minute goal by Gideon Vaughan in Nagoush. The remaining two results came as quite big surprises as Port Rhovanyon fell 0-2 at home to the Anhedron Wanderers and the Tikariot City FC took an extremely heavy defeat, actually the largest of the whole league this season, when Miruan City blasted them out of their own Dhaencunor Arena 0-7, with two braces for Ellis Wagstaff and Rylan Abbott.

At the bottom the situation of the Fort Viljan Northern FC is beginning to get very serious, as their 0-2 loss to Eivora Athletic now makes it seven matches without a win and only one of them a draw. Due to this and Guillarim beating Valnohar 1-0, Fort Viljan has now dropped to 22nd position, only saved from a further drop by Zhelmagor also dropping three points to Veriasod, while Nagoush's additional point this week gives them a one point lead over Guillarim and two over Fort Viljan and Zhelmagor. A little higher above the drop zone a few teams seem to have propelled themselves to relative safety. Ancarea is sitting three points ahead of Guillarim (who still have an excellent goal difference in comparison to their table neighbours), Bul Khungur four, Avanaroch five, Kyethas six and Ysgrann Bay seven. But if this season has proved anything, then that all predictions could be nothing more than dust in the wind by tomorrow.

Never before this season did one match day yield five goalless draws. One of these is also the only reason why Port Rhovanyon still has a nine-point lead over Pyathora as Miruan City delivered a hard-fought 2-3 loss to the team from the capital, Tikariot City, Oriannor and Baraldhur also only managed to reach split decisions, making the Port Tacassam FC the big winner of this match day, as they were the only ones to collect the full three points with a tight 1-0 win over bottom dwellers Morannon Athletic. Miruan and Veriasod now are four points behind Port Tacassam, who are only one point away from catching up with Baraldhur, so things are definitely tightening up at the top.

On the other end of the table Morannon is now looking at Fort Viljan as immediate neighbour, who suffered another heavy 1-4 defeat in Parakleion, putting them five points behind 20th placed Bul Khungur Miners and their goal difference also has greatly suffered during their almost unrivalled slide down the standings. Both Zhelmagor and Nagoush reaped three points this week which propelled Zhelmagor to 21st past Guillarim and Fort Viljan and Nagoush even into the 19th position, their best since match day ten! Given a four point difference between Ysgrann Bay in 15th and Kyethas in 16th position now defines the relegation battle candidates Kyethas, Avanaroch, Ancarea, Nagoush, Bul Khungur, Zhelmagor, Guillarim and maybe still Fort Viljan with pretty much anybody but the most die-hard optimists having written off Morannon by now.

Quarter Finals

Pyathora Mariners FC (1) 1-1 Toroyra FC (2) (2-1 AET)
Imyalore Arrows FC (2) 1-0 Carhan Knights FC (3)
Fort Viljan Northern FC (1) 1-1 Miruan City FC (1) (1-2 AET)
Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC (1) 0-1 Eivora Athletic FC (1)


The quarter finals were everything fans and experts were hoping for, hard fought, gripping until the end and with one second division team managing to make their way into the semi finals! The Imyalore Arrows were a little bit lucky, we have to admit, to have drawn the last remaining third division side, the Carhan Knights (and here we would like to extend an apology to the Knights as in our coverage from the round of 16 we had erroneously labeled them as second division team), beating them in a tight 1-0 contest. Joining them are the Pyathora Mariners, who needed extra time to overcome second division Toroyra FC, Miruan City, who also hat to go through extra time in their win over the Fort Viljan Northern FC and finally Eivora Athletic, who prevailed over the Ysgrann Bay Eagles FC.

With every match day the Port Rhovanyon AFC is getting one step closer to clinching the TPL championship way before the last round comes and goes. The Valnohar Rovers were no match to their pressing, controlling play and the 1-0 by Jardel Connolly does not do the game justice, because for the most part of the game it was one-way football and the Rovers can be happy they did not concede more than one goal. The AFC also benefitted greatly by their closest rival, the Pyathora Mariners, to surprisingly drop all three points in Anhedron when the Wanderers overcame them 2-1 and Oriannor's 1-1 in Ysgrann Bay probably caused a smile or two in the nation's capital as well. Overall the whole match day was very much in favour of Port Rhovanyon as the Tikariot City FC could not get past a 1-1 against Veriasod themselves and Baraldhur even managed to lose 1-2 in Guillarim, which made the Kraken and the Port Tacassam FC the two big winners with the latter beating Nagoush 1-0 and propelling themselves above both the TCFC and Baraldhur to the fourth position in the table.

Morannon keeps surprising a lot of people in the second half of the season so far, because they were able to notch another win, a narrow 1-0 over the struggling Carathyr Emeralds, which means that they have scored 16 points in twelve games so far compared to ten in the first 23 and they are not only seven points behind the Fort Viljan Northern FC, who lost an almost sure win against the Bul Khungur Miners through a 90th minute goal by Gary Conway. Guillarim's win brings them into 20th position due to Zhelmagor losing at home to the Parakleion Firebirds and Nagoush, as mentioned above, not being able to keep a clean sheet against Port Tacassam.

The Port Rhovanyon AFC is not infallible, so to say, as Gamsk County was able to hold them to a scoreless draw at the Lorland County Stadium, opening a chance for the Pyathora Mariners to pull back two of the points they had lost last week, but the Valnohar Rovers had a different idea, even being in the lead until the 87th minute when Lawrence Bowden managed to score the equalizer, meaning that the 12-point lead of the Kraken still stands. Oriannor was trying to take advantage of the situation and the Mountaineers did not disappoint, sending Fort Viljan home with a mirthless 3-0 win that brings them within one point of the Mariners. The Port Tacassam FC had the same opportunity and tok it with a 3-2 win over the Avanaroch White Wings, whose relegation worries are intensifying again. The only team in this group that did not manage a victory was the Tikariot City FC, only managing a 1-1 in Eivora, but to their luck Baraldhur could not get past a 1-1 in Anhedron either.

Morannon's uncanny string of wins is continuing as they surprised the Ysgrann Bay Eagles with a 3-2 win and together with Fort Viljan's loss now are only a mere four points behind them! The Zhelmagor Society, though, did not leave the Bul Khungur Miners any chance in their 4-0 victory in the Temple of the Crow, with both Louis Melton and Garfield Sheppard scoring a brace apiece. Spurned on by this the Nagoush FC also collected three points on the road, furthering the woes of the Carathyr Emeralds with a 2-1 win, and these two victories meant that Bul Khungur and the Ancarea FC that had lost 0-1 in Parakleion now find themselves in the drop zone from the TPL.

Another goalless draw for the Port Rhovanyon AFC, but nothing lost as it was against the Pyathora Mariners, who missed a great chance to secure three important points in their plight to maybe bridge the almost insurmountable gap that the Kraken have been able to build up. The Oriannor Mountaineers lost equally important three points with a surprise 0-2 loss at the mysterious Zhelma Keep, which in turn allowed the Port Tacassam FC to blindside both and pull into second place. And thanks to Tikariot City firing Parakleion out of TKT City with 4-2, the Snowy Owls also managed to sneak past the Mountaineers, who suddenly find themselves back in fifth position, three points ahead of the Veriasod Lakers, who managed to pass Baraldhur thanks to a clear 3-1 away win in Gamsk and Miruan City courtesy of a 4-1 over Eivora are now just one point behind Baraldhur, so things are getting tighter behind Port Rhovanyon.

Recording their third win in a row, Morannon Athletic edged out their direct opponents from Fort Viljan 1-0, bringing them within one point of each other, this loss now also the eleventh game without a win in a row for the Viljanis. Their eighth game without a three pointer cemented Bul Khungur's 22nd spot, which hurt even more as their 0-1 loss came in Ancarea, so in a what many people like to refer to as six-point game, enabling Ancarea to leave the relegation zone again, instead pulling the Avanaroch White Wings back down, whose 1-4 against Carathyr was their seventh winless effort in a row.

Behind Port Rhovanyon, who are again twelve points ahead due to a 2-0 win in Veriasod, things are extremely tight in the Tikariot Premier League and just in time to make for a gripping finish to the season. With Port Tacassam losing 2-0 to the Anhedron Wanderers, Pyathora clearing Baraldhur with a resounding 4-2 and Oriannor also coming out victorious in a 1-0 over Ancarea together with Tikariot City's surprising 0-4 loss in Bul Khungur the Mariners are back in second, two points ahead of Oriannor and Port Tacassam and Tikariot City another two points behind. After them Veriasod and Baraldhur are four points behind already, opening a gap neither team wanted to see. Instead they are going to have to look behind them, where both Miruan and Parakleion are sitting just one point adrift, ready to pounce and rise in the tables.

Morannon's win streak has hit a little road block with the Zhelmagor Society holding them to a 1-1, but they still are only seven points behind a non-relegation position, which has been a long time since that has happened. Fort Viljan finally managed to snap their winless streak when they managed to come from behind with goals by Liljestrand and Lundin, giving them a 2-1 victory, which still leaves them four points behind now 22nd placed Avanaroch, losing 1-2 in Ysgrann Bay, Kyethas, who lost another game against Valnohar, also with 1-2, with their fifth loss in six games, and Guillarim, who fell to Carathyr 0-3, bringing the back teams ever closer together. Just one point ahead sit Bul Khungur, Nagoush and Ancarea and one more point before them is Zhelmagor before a six point rift to Ysgrann Bay clearly marks where the relegation battle begins.

In a turbulent 38th match day the half the promotion race was turned upside down. The Vantanoch FC and the Vilharady Owls already had booked their ticket back into the Tikariot Premier League, Vantanoch immediately making their way back up while the Owls return after six years. Behind them however the Toroyra FC and Dhalhora Heartland FC had occupied the other two promotion spots going into the last weekend and things turned horribly wrong for both of them. Toroyra lost in Vilharady by two goals to three and Dhalhora fell 2-4 to the Emerald Coast Raiders, while Xanark City edged out the Samreach Dragons 1-0 on the road and allowed both Xanark and the Raiders to climb into the last two remaining positions in the elevator, Xanark returning to the TPL right after their relegation last year, while the Raiders finished a four-year absence. Heartbreak also on the bottom of the table, where the Grahel Islanders, Ranarrh Boulders, Scafarr FC and Imyalore Arrows are walking the walk of shame into the third division.

Semi Finals
Eivora Athletic FC (1) 1-0 Miruan City FC (1)
Pyathora Mariners FC (1) 1-2 Imyalore Arrows FC (2)


And the final is set and it is a continuation of the fairytale that has been following us throughout the Cup of Tikariot so far. Not Eivora Athletic beating Miruan 1-0, that was somewhat to be expected, however who they will be facing is where this tale lies. Or more precisely in the southwest of Taeria in the dreamy city of Imyalore and it is a tragic story at the same time. The fairytale part is that they kicked out second-placed Pyathora Miners 2-1 for a sensational trip to the cup final. The tragic side is that they have been relegated from the second division in twentieth and last place, so in theory we could have a third division team represent Tikariot in the Challengers' Cup next season.

The season is nearing its end and the only thing a lot of people are talking about is when the Port Rhovanyon AFC is going to clinch the championship, which with twelve points can do to you. Their strides to their third title ever were a little smaller this week, though, when the Baraldhur AFC held them to a 1-1, which did not really help either of the teams in their quests for the trophy or for international qualification, something that has been made a lot more difficult with the Pyathora Mariners having been eliminated from the Cup of Tikariot, meaning that fifth place will no longer be eligible for international business!

Speaking of Pyathora, they did manage to shorten their lag behind the leaders by two points by shutting out the Kyethas Rivermen 1-0, but the Oriannor Mountaineers are keeping up with them, beating the Tikariot City FC 2-1 and making the Snowy Owls ambitions to qualify just so much harder. However the fact that the Port Tacassam FC failed to win in Valnohar, though, leaves the two teams just two points apart, keeping things interesting. The big winner of match day 39, though, were the Veriasod Lakers, who beat Eivora 2-1 and now is sitting only one point behind Tikariot City with a vastly better goal difference.

Morannon Athletic also is still alive at the end there, drawing the Ancarea FC 2-2, bringing them to 34 points, currently seven points behind a safe place. Fort Viljan also dropped two important points in their fight for survival, in Avanaroch of all places, so against a direct opponent, but that was still better than the seventh winless game of Kyethas or Nagoush dropping all points in a Louis Melton gala, scoring all three goals for Zhelmagor in their 3-1 win. It does remain very tight, though, with places 16 to 22 only being separated by four points, making for a very interesting season's end.

Fans of the Port Rhovanyon AFC are starting to wonder, if the Kraken is starting to show nerves with their second goalless draw in a row, this time in Eivora's Melnock House. So with the Pyathora Mariners leaving Port Tacassam with all three points thanks to their forward duo Sheffield and Bowden turning around an eary PTFC lead by national team centre back James Coronello, the Rhovanyns' lead is down to eight points with six games to go. The Mountaineers also lost two important points when they could not get past Miruan City, having to be satisfied with a 1-1, putting them four points back now and three points ahead of the Tikariot City FC that not only beat Morannon 2-1, but also leapfrogged Port Tacassam due to their loss against Pyathora. And thanks to their superior goal difference the Veriasod Lakers also managed to pass the Rams, staying hot on the TKFC's heels.

Morannon's loss also put a sizeable dent into their faint hopes of rescue, with Fort Viljan being in the same boat donating all three points to Guillarim and Kyethas having lost five straight after calling 3-0 to Baraldhur. Nagoush took the opportunity of both Avanaroch and Ancarea (coincidentally against Nagoush) losing their respective games to pass both and push the White Wings back into the relegation zone. Bul Khungur, Zhelmagor and, as mentioned, Guillarim all managed to win their respective games, putting some much needed distance between them and the drop zone with The Zhelmagor Society even passing the Ysgrann Bay Eagles on goal difference, which now makes quite a few fans in Acrassia, and the whole nation over, worry that the Eagles might end up in bigger danger than originally anticipated.

And they still can win! After two goalless draw, the Port Rhovanyon AFC managed another victory, tight as it was, over the Kyethas Rivermen, who now have lost six in a row. Pyathora did not let up, though, blanking the Carathyr Emeralds 2-0 and Oriannor followed suit, returning to Khazagh with three points, and three goals, in tow. It is the pack behind them, though, that had a lot of eyes on it and the results here were mixed. The Snowy Owls from Tikariot City started things off with a 1-0 over lowly Nagoush, Veriasod continued their great run with the same result over Bul Khungur. Port Tacassam hit a bit of a snag when they were held to a 2-2 in Baraldhur, which in turn allowed the Anhedron Wanderers to catch up, as they added more to the woes of the Fort Viljan Northern FC, which brings them within one point of the Nightninjas.

In one of the tightest relegation battles in years, Morannon took another potentially important point in Miruan, when they snagged it late in the 82nd minutes courtesy of Jody Bentley's second goal of the game. On top of the already mentioned losses by Fort Viljan and Kyethas, Avanaroch lost 2-0 in Ancarea, who now in turn lep past Nagoush. With just five more games to go, Morannon now is nine points behind 20th, which still does seem like a losing battle despite a truly valiant effort, Fort Viljan are missing seven, Kyethas four and Avanaroch three. Guillarim and Ysgrann Bay's eight point lead over Avanaroch in 21st seems fairly comfortable at this point, but things can change at the drop of a hat here, as the slumps of Fort Viljan and Kyethas prove, Fort Viljan with one win out of the last 15 games and Kyethas one draw out of the last nine.

Things continue to heat up in the Tikariot Premier League on match day 42, but the Port Rhovanyon AFC is as cool as a (sea) cucumber, cruising to another 1-0 win in Parakleion, keeping their lead over the Pyathora Mariners to a comfortable eight points, as they took all three points from Ysgrann Bay in a convincing 3-1 victory. The Mountaineers remain four points behind the Acrassians thanks to an important 1-0 over the Veriasod Lakers keeping them at bay and Avanaroch's 1-0 over Tikariot City now means that Oriannor is six points and 12 goals ahead of the Port Tacassam FC, which benefited from the losses of their two closest rivals courtesy of handing Kyethas their incredible seventh loss in a row. This means that with four games remaining Port Rhovanyon is eight points ahead of Pyathora, who have a four point lead on Oriannor and then a six point gap to Port Tacassam and Tikariot City with Veriasod another point behind them, which means that the race for the spot in the Taça das Confederações is going to be an immensely tight one!

Moving on to the less fortunate ones, Morannon's next draw, this time goalless against Gamsk, is not really helping them much, given Fort Viljan finally snapping their scary streak with a 1-0 win over Valnohar, which now brings them even with Kyethas and Avanaroch's already mentioned win means that they push Nagoush back into the red zone, who did not stand a chance in their 0-3 defeat by Miruan City. With twelve points still up for grab Morannon still sits eight off the riverbank, Fort Viljan and Kyethas are four behind Nagoush and Avanaroch, who in turn are three behind Bul Khungur, four behind Ancarea and Zhelmagor and five behind Ysgrann Bay and Guillarim, so the battle to avoid relegation looks like it could be even more of a nailbiter than the fight up top, so a lot to look forward to!

Final
Imyalore Arrows FC (2) 1-4 Eivora Athletic FC (1)


The dice have been cast in the first ever Cup of Tikariot and the favourite has prevailed in a fairly one-sided game. The Imyalore Arrows, though, took the lead through a nice free kick by Larry Carlson after half an hour and were able to hold on to it until half-time, which was a huge success for the team that was relegated from the Second Division this season. In the second half, though, Eivora meant business and a 1-2 strike in the 49th and 50th minute by Brian Docherty and Clive Salvara respectively turned the result upside down and from that moment on it was pretty much one-way football with the Arrows rarely being able get the ball out of their own half anymore. Two more goals by Angus Guinness in the 57th and Dean Berrymore in the 83rd minute sealed the deal and are sending Eivora Athletic into next season's ICFC Challengers' Cup!

Almost there! The Port Rhovanyon AFC is only two points away from clinching the championship after a 2-1 win over Port Tacassam, keeping them eight points ahead of the Pyathora Mariners, who almost doomed the Fort Viljan FC to relegation with a narrow 3-2 win courtesy of a late Bowden goal. This also keeps them four points abreast of the Oriannor Mountaineers who are still marching in sync with them, leaving Eivora stranded wtih a 2-1 win. They now have opened up a seven-point lead over the Veriasod Lakers, who managed to leapfrog both Port Tacassam and Tikariot City thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory over lowly Morannon Athletic, while Tikariot City left valuable three points in the hands of the Guillarim Blades and Port Tacassam, as already mentioned, fell to Port Rhovanyon. A dark horse in the whole affair has emerged as well, namely the Anhedron Wanderers, whose 1-0 win over Ancarea was their seventh win in a row and they are now in fifth position, having overtaken both Port Tacassam and Tikariot City as well thanks to their superior goal difference.

Speaking of Morannon, their loss in Veriasod together with Nagoush's 2-0 win in Gamsk condemned them to the sorrowful trip back into the second division, which in all honesty came way later than anybody had expected anyways. Fort Viljan's loss also sees them seven points behind Nagoush in 20th position, which does not look good at all at the only Viljamark-based team in the TPL, the Kyethas Rivermen, though, have shown an unexpected sign of life when beating the Carathyr Emeralds 3-1, snapping a slump of ten games without a win and bringing them within four points of the safe place. Avanaroch stay mired in the dump, narrowly losing 0-1 in Miruan. Guillarim with an eight point lead are almost safe with Bul Khungur and Ysgrann Bay not far behind, but looking at the season so far, nothing should surprise anybody anymore!

And it is done - the Port Rhovanyon AFC is the champion of the Tikariot Premier League in its 100th season with 17-year-old Virgil Wickens scoring the decisive goal in their 1-0 win in Bul Khungur. Pyathora's 2-0 win in Zhelmagor was not enough to keep them in the running for the title, but with Oriannor only drawing against the Parakleion Firebirds they are now six points ahead and with the far superior goal difference they are anything but guaranteed the second spot and with that the qualification for both the IFCF Challengers' Cup and Liga dos Vencedores. The Lakers gained two points on the Mountaineers with Anhedron and Port Tacassam following suit while Tikariot City is almost out of the international contention due to yet another home loss against the Anhedron Wanderers.

With Morannon already relegated since match day 43, Fort Viljan is almost a goner, too, not getting past a goalless draw against Baraldhur, so a lot of things will have to go perfectly right for the Northern FC to still be able to rescue themselves. Kyethas win last week may not have been much more than a flash in the pan as they are back to their losing ways, falling to Ysgrann Bay with two goals by Iain Aspinall. Nagoush's loss in conjunction with Avanaroch beating Gamsk 2-0 means that they have switched places again, even if just by one goal, with Ancarea (2-3 against Valnohar) and Zhelmagor (0-2 in Pyathora) just one point ahead. Bul Khungur are still just three points ahead of the drop zone while Ysgrann Bay and Guillarim are almost safe.

As the penultimate match day has run its course, the first three are set in stone. Port Rhovanyon continues to march on with anothe 2-0 win over the Carathyr Emeralds and with Oriannor being held to a 1-1 draw by The Bul Khungur Miners, the same result for the Pyathora Mariners against Ancarea guarantees them the second position as well as Oriannor the third. The battle for fourth and with that the qualification for the Taça das Confederações, however, is still in full swing, leaving three teams in the running, Anhedron, Port Tacassam and Veriasod, the first two level on points and Veriasod one behind. Which also means that Tikariot City has officially taken itself out of contention with their fourth defeat in a row, which now has them drop behind Baraldhur again, who are on a bit of a recovery tour with Morris Nighthorse scoring both goals in their 2-0 win over Zhelmagor.

Morannon already had been relegated, so this week the Fort Viljan Northern FC has been confirmed as second team sure to go down after falling 0-3 to the Kyethas Rivermen, who in turn are now only one point behind Nagoush, who lost in Eivora, and two behind Zhelmagor. The Ancarea FC, due to their draw in Pyathora and Avanaroch, winning in Veriasod 2-0, are the only other two teams still in the danger zone with Bul Khungur, Ysgrann Bay and Guillarim officially safe from relegation.

Two big questions loomed over the 46th and last match day of the 100th season of the Tikariot Premier League. The battle for fourth place and the entry to the Taça das Confederações and an even fiercer battle against relegation. Looking at the top first, the premise was that Anhedron with 76, Port Tacassam also with 76 and Veriasod with 75 points were in tight contention. Anhedron was to face off against Gamsk County, Port Tacassam travelled to Fort Viljan and Veriasod went north to Guillarim.

The first goal came from Anhedron, where Franklin Mosnyk brought the lead to the Wanderers. It was the only goal in the first half for any of the three games, but for that the 61st minute brought two, at first in Guillarim Ernest Garrison with the go ahead goal for Veriasod, then Jesson Morrison doubled Anhedron's lead, bringing them a big step closer to fourth. When Pontus Lundin surprisingly scored the first goal for Fort Viljan, pretty much eliminating Port Tacassam from the competition before Mark Monks sealed the deal with the 3-0 of Anhedron over Gamsk, securing them the much coveted spot in international competition.

At the bottom with Fort Viljan and Morannon already relegated, the matches of interest were: Nagoush FC vs. Parakleion Firebirds, The Zhelmagor Society vs. Kyethas Rivermen, Ancarea FC vs. Baraldhur AFC and Avanaroch White Wings vs. Eivora Athletic. And after a lot of back and forth Ancarea managed a 2-2 draw against Baraldhur, where Morris Nighthorse scored season goals 30 and 31, securing himself the Golden Cannon as top goal scorer of the season, marking them as safe and even sneaking past Bul Khungur in the process. Avanaroch did not stand a chance against the brand new Cup of Tikariot winners Eivora Athletic, falling 1-3, raising their worries about the drop. Nagoush could not hold their lead at home against Parakleion, going 1-1 in the end and making them the third team to confirm relegation. The Zhelmagor Society started proceedings out well, when Avery Cunningham scored the 1-0 agaisnt Kyethas, extending their lead over the Rivermen to a comfortable five points. The Dhaencunori, though, showed tremendous spirit and with two goals by Ainsley Wilton within eight minutes turned the game around for a 2-1 win and with that elevated them to 20th, pushing down Zhelmagor and securing their TPL status for another season!
