The Eagle's Cup XIV :: Cup of Champions :: RP/Scores

Postby Eagles Club » Tue Sep 06, 2022 3:19 am


The Eagle's Club is proud to present Eagles Cup, a modern era re-incarnation of the historic Eagle's Cup. 16+ esteemed nations from throughout the multiverse will compete over 9 Matchdays to lift the Eagle's Cup and earn their place in the Eagle's Club, securing their place as a competitor and potential host in future Eagle's Cups.

Format :: The 16* nations will be split into two 8-team sub-competitions. Each competition will have two groups where 4 teams will play each other nation twice*, once at a stadium of their choosing and once at a stadium of their opponents choosing. The first sub-competition is the Cocoa-bo Challenge Trophy which traces direct lineage to the original Eagle's Cup including the representatives from the Eagle's Club and At-Large entrants. The second sub-competition is strictly invite only, tracing a direct lineage to the Cup of Champions and representing only WCC Sanctioned, Major Event & Select Confederation Champions. From there, the top 2 nations in each group table will advance to the Semi-Final round of each half to be held at an official Eagle's Club location. The winners of these matches will receive a special trophy from the Eagle's Club that also grants the nations honorary status with the Eagle's Club for one competition cycle and advance to the Final of their half. The winners of the Cocoa-bo Challenge Trophy and Cup of Champions will advance to the Eagle's Cup Championship match presented by Cocoa-bo where the winner will be crowned overall champion and granted permanent entry into the Eagle's Club. A third place playoff will also be contested back at the Eagle's Club where medals for the Top Three finishers in the overall will be awarded.

Eagles Club, Select and Champions Group stage matches are standard 4-team group stages with Home & Away fixtures. *Regional Groups will see two consecutive 4-team single round robin groups with seeds based on final position in the most recent Cup of Champions Confederations Group phase.
Knockout Round Matches shall be played at an official Eagle's Club location with preference to the Eagle's Club facility of the highest Seed unless no suitable Venue is available
The Final for the Cocoa-bo Challenge Trophy shall be contested at TBD
The Final for the Cup of Champions shall be contested at the TBD
The Final match of the competition shall be the Eagle's Cup Bronze Medal match to be contested at The Eagles Club where all medals will be awarded in a final ceremony.

Transportation support for teams competing in the Eagle's Cup is available through the multinational Logistics and Holdings Company CoCoCo. Cocoa-bo, a primary holding of CoCoCo which heavily leverages the CoCoCo Logistics infrastructure has been signed as the presenting sponsor of the tournament and will have traveling Cocoa-bo booths at all tournament venues.

Eligible Participants :: The bylaws of the Eagle's Club denote guaranteed entry for up to 8 Nations into the Eagle's Cup as follows:

Eagle's Club Members - Minimum 4 entrants into the Eagle's Cup via the Cocoa-bo Challenge Trophy
Eagle's Cup Semi-Finalist - Maximum 3 Entrants into the Eagle's Cup via the Cocoa-bo Challenge Trophy
Non-Member Applicant - Minimum 1 Entrant into the Eagle's Cup via the Cocoa-bo Challenge Trophy

Should the Eagle's Club contain fewer than 4 active member nations then the Eagle's Club allocation to the Cup shall be reduced accordingly. The Eagle's Club shall fill these slots with Non-Member nations by means of Selection, Invitation or Application as necessary to fill the field.

Should the previous cycles Eagle's Cup semi-finalists include Eagle's Club members, or, should any of the previous cycles Eagle's Cup Semi-Finalists fail to send a delegation to the Eagle's Cup, the Eagle's Cup Semi-Finalist's allocation to the Cup shall be reduced accordingly. The Eagle's Club shall fill these slots with Non-Member nations by means of Selection, Invitation or Application as necessary to fill the field.

Per established precedent, entry for at least 4 Nations each into the Champions and Confederations Groups may be earned earned via triumph in recently contested World Cup Committee, Major Recognized Competition including the Cup of Champions and Regionally sanctioned Championships with replacement nations to be selected at the discretion of the Eagle's Club Committee.

The Black Eagles


IMPORTANT OOC NOTE: For all intents and purposes, this Tumbra that began contesting in WCQ87 is an entirely new nation. They have no recollection of their earlier exploits from WC70-80, because that simply didn't exist for this Tumbra. Any and all similarities to the nation of the similar name can and should be construed as glitches in the Multiverse. You may, however, make muted references to "having done this before" or something. For a detailed explanation of how this came to be, read these RPs.

The Tumbran National Football Team is Tumbra's main representative in all association football competitions for national associations. Making its debut at the 87th World Cup Qualifiers, the team currently ranks 4th in the world. The team is controlled by the Tumbran Football Federation, which is also the governing body of football in Tumbra. Also known as the Black Eagles, or affectionately the Eagles, the team competes in the World Cup and its related competitions. The team also participates in the Campionato Esportiva, also sends teams to the Di Bradini Cup for Under-21s, and the Under-18 World Cup. The team have won the 51st edition of the former tournament and the 13th edition of the latter tournament; which has led to a keen emphasis on bleeding youth into the national team set-up early. With a loyal travelling contingent of supporters known as the Black Army, the Tumbran national team's support will be on display throughout this tournament, with lots of tifos and loud cheers expected throughout matches.

The reigning champions of the Eagles' Cup — having won the competition on the second attempt — return. With permanent membership of the Eagles' Club assured, the focus of the team sent to this (and future) Eagles' Cup is development. Twenty-four players, deemed to have potential futures on the national team, have been called up to see how they perform in black; alongside two stalwarts of the national team, who are gently being eased into leadership roles.

The Manager

Yuan, 61, managed the Yuezhou Dragons in their debut cycle in the World Cup, finishing a miraculous third as a ninth seed, beating countries like Northwest Kalactin and Eraman — before bringing Yuezhou to the quarterfinals of the Copa Rushmori 36. A difficult start to the World Cup 87 cycle saw him lose his job, however. Slated to take on the job at AC Valanari, visa issues meant he was never able to take on the job — and was a free agent until the approach from the national team to replace the recently-departed Marco Hemmings. Prior to his foray in international football, he also served as a coach for WNS Nangang. Since joining the Tumbran national football team, he has brought it to great success; qualifying for the World Cup in all three cycles cycles he's been with the country now, reaching the semi-finals in the latest occasion; and a regional title, to boot.

Touted as a defensive manager, Yuan chose to set the Dragons up with five defenders during his time with them; but has already indicated his preference for playing with four at the back in Tumbra. Utilising an aggressive midfield press, the Black Eagles fall into a 5-4-1 in defence, with the defensive midfielder dropping back to provide an extra man in defence. With the ball, it's fast, one-touch counterattacking; constant running is the name of the game here.

New kits are unveiled for the next 2 cycles of international football. Whilst some will complain there is little change to the old kits, the old saying “if it aint broke, don’t fix it” is suggested by others. The now iconic double V on a yellow shirt is updated with a faded pattern, with a reverse on the black shorts, and black socks. The away kit is a simple reversal of the main colours, and provides a mix and match combinations for partial clashes. The third kit is in purple and gold, a nod to both Anaia, and the CAFA Cup 4 won by Flavovespia



Manager – Augusto Rinaldi Age: 59 (Savigliane)

Quite possibly one of the most important figures in Flavovespian football history, and maybe one of the most liked people in all of Flavovespia. Augusto Rinaldi may not be a Flavovespian national, but the manager from Savigliane holds a special place in the hearts of all Flavovespian football fans after taking the side to their first ever World Cup and a CAFA Cup 4 title. A great man manager, his direct 4-3-3 may not be the most elegant football, but he’s turned Flavovespia into a formidable footballing nation.


1 Aarif Muhammad Age: 30 Position: GK Club: Rockridge Phoenix [BRE] Caps: 129 Goals: 0
12 Thomas Foley Age: 28 Position: GK Club: Bavingtor FC Caps: 1 Goals: 0
23 Nathan Crewe Age: 26 Position: GK Club: Marthorpe City FC Caps: 1 Goals: 0

Aarif Muhammad in the last few years has gone from a goalkeeper who some questioned if he could reach his potential, to an integral part of the national team. So many key performances recently have been started with a solid backline, of which he plays a big part. An all-around goalkeeper, it’s hard to pick out a major weakness of his, as he seemingly reaches his peak years. Behind him in the line up are Thomas Foley and Nathan Crewe, both with a solitary cap in games with little at stake. Thomas Foley is a pure shot stopper, one of Flavovespia’s finest, but has never been a great goalkeeper. Nathan Crewe is the opposite, a dynamic goalkeeper with an eye to quickly moving the ball forward, but sometimes lacking in the fundamentals. Both come from the golden goalkeeper generation, displacing the enigmatic Lucky Diamond from the squad.

After the performances of Aarif Muhammad at the World Cup Qualifiers 91, his position in goal seems in little doubt now. Whilst he did concede 5 to The Holy Empire in the World Cup, his performances in almost every game were more than up to scratch. He’s kicked out an inconsistent streak and looks in fine form, with good all-around performances. Thomas Foley is in the eyes of many now the #2 goalkeeper for Flavovespia. Not capped yet, he’s shown great form in the Super League, and is a great shot-stopper, even if his distribution leaves a little to be desired. Lucky Diamond remains in the squad. His play style is the opposite to Foley, even if he’s not the most pure shot stopper, but will be able to play with the ball at his feet. However at 31, and with Flavovespia’s golden goalkeeper generation coming up to age, soon the eccentric goalkeeper could see his international career reach a swansong.


2 David Lyons Age: 29 Position: LB Club: Maethoru SC [KOR] Caps: 118 Goals: 3
3 Andrew Dance Age: 26 Position: RB Club: Loxthorpe Rovers FC Caps: 59 Goals: 0
4 Stuart Cookson Age: 28 Position: CB Club: Marthorpe City FC Caps: 70 Goals: 1
5 Paul Taylor Age: 23 Position: CB Club: AC Izotz Zubia [AUD] Caps: 13 Goals: 0
13 Kishan Rees Age: 29 Position: LWB Club: Gunzlach [GRÆ] Caps: 48 Goals: 0
14 Malcolm Beresford Age: 24 Position: CB Club: Bavingtor FC Caps: 0 Goals: 0
15 Daniel Lansdell Age: 30 Position: CB Club: St Astons City FC Caps: 57 Goals: 1
16 David Blythe Age: 32 Position: RWB Club: Kytheas Rivermen [TKT] Caps: 154 Goals: 0

The experience of Tony Gardner in defence will be sorely missed as the centre back with over a double century of caps is no longer in the squad. However as time moves on, others will look to step in and fill his boots. Full back David Lyons is certainly helping though, with his successful time as captain now, combined with a very enthusiastic and positive attitude. Stuart Cookson, Paul Taylor and Andrew Dance will be the initial starting defenders, with David Blythe providing a lot of rotational experience, and Daniel Lansdell and Kishan Rees also in a similar role. A debutant is in the defensive ranks. Malcolm Beresford has made a name for himself at Bavingtor, and the tall and strong centre back is now in the national team for the first time. A gritty, determined old-school centre back, he may not be a beauty on the ball, but will always be hassling and fighting any strikers in his path.


6 David Clark Age: 33 Position: CDM Club: WSR AFC [KOR]Caps: 144 Goals: 15
7 Kieron Player Age: 28 Position: CDM Club: Coret Hawks [NPH] Caps: 116 Goals: 4
8 Robert Totten Age: 32 Position: CAM Club: Loxthorpe Rovers FC Caps: 94 Goals: 20
11 Jonathan Bagshaw Age: 22 Position: RAM Club: AC Izotz Zubia [AUD] Caps: 52 Goals: 26
17 Jonathan Goldstone Age: 27 Position: CM Club: Bavingtor FC Caps: 4 Goals: 0
18 David Wassell Age: 26 Position: CDM Club: Yerushalayim [ADB] Caps: 46 Goals: 0
19 Amrik Singh Age: 23 Position: RAM Club: Binclestead Wood FC Caps: 1 Goals: 0
20 Andrew Thomas Age: 29 Position: LM Club: Marthorpe City FC Caps: 11 Goals: 2
22 Michael Hornby Age: 27 Position: RM Club: Langmere Green Rovers FC Caps: 0 Goals: 0

It’s no surprise that the 8 midfielders from the CAFA Cup 4 winning side return, and joining them is debutant Michael Hornby. The star of the midfield will be the new #11, Jonathan Bagshaw. Few could take the number that Steven Hall used to wear, but Bagshaw may already be one of the most recognisable Flavovespian footballers, and quite possibly the finest in at least a generation. The midfield trio is likely to see David Clark provide a lot of experience with his many years at this level, alongside Kieron Player and David Wassell. Robert Totten provides the option for a more advanced central midfielder in terms of attacking play. Jonathan Goldstone is a fleet-footed ball playing midfielder. Amrik Singh, Andrew Thomas and now Michael Hornby are all midfielders who can drop into the wings of an attacking front 3, with good pace and a decent eye for goals or assists.


9 Michael Cole Age: 28 Position: CF Club: North Hall [BRE] Caps: 101 Goals: 43
10 Scott Coleman Age: 34 Position: CF Club: Aries Chariots [NPH] Caps: 223 Goals: 130
21 Adrian Jones Age: 29 Position: CF Club: Langmere Green Rovers FC Caps: 36 Goals: 18

Only 3 out and out forwards in this squad, a combination of the 4-3-3 formation and domestic performances leaving the 4th spot to go to a midfielder. Michael Cole will continue on as the left winger in the attacking trio, with his great pace, ability to cut inside and shoot serving him well. Adrian Jones is a strong, tall forward, which helps him in aerial battles and to bring in his team mates. However his shooting abilities and movement on the ball can’t be underestimated. Scott Coleman may be the last of the original Flavovespians still in the squad, but the 34 year old is still as accurate as ever when he can shoot or head towards goal, even if pace and agility aren’t what they were. His experience even just in the squad could be a real useful asset.


Flavovespia play a direct 4-3-3 formation. The defence are tasked with keeping a steady back line, not often pressing high, although full backs do sometimes adventure forward with the ball. In midfield, 2 of the 3 will often be the ones closing down and trying to win the ball back, whilst the other acts as a more freely moving creative player. Up front, the 2 wide forwards must be able to shoot or cross with good decision making, whilst the centre forward plays as a false nine. Occasionally other formations and tactics can be deployed if the game situation requires it, although this is something of a rarity.

MD1: HUElavia 1-1
MD2: Tecoia 0-3
MD3: Cassadaigua 2-1
MD4: Tumbra 3-1
MD5: HUElavia
MD6: Banija

Nephara have won the World Cup--

oh, hold up

A Nephar has won the World Cup! But the Cormorants still aren't back yet. An uptick in form, to be fair, but it's inching closer to a decade since Nephara's been at a quarterfinal. But there's a serious degree of belief in Elaine Koeller, and an emerging group of gifted youth that are leading to hope of a re-resurgence in the future. Realistically, Nephara have nothing to prove to anyone but themselves... but they always have something to prove to themselves.

Nepharan football is based around playing hard, pressing aggressively, playing for keeps. Occasionally this leaves gaps behind the high defensive line, though most Nepharan goalkeepers are in the sweeping mould these days to compensate. Marchers are, by and large, a physically imposing folk, and eager to throw their size around. The footballing culture is intensely competitive, and those that survive to make their way to the top are hellbent on winning at any cost. Elbows to the face. Subtle digs in the ribs. Diving is dishonest when opponents do it but streetwise when Nepharim do it. In short, Nephara are the bully from two years above who picked you, specifically, out as a natural target.

That is often the foreign perspective, but it overlooks a key fact; Nepharan football can honestly be beautiful to watch. Generations of players brought up on dry plains or asphalt play the ball quickly and fearlessly along the ground, never sideways when there's a forward option open, always looking to stretch and probe and stay one really good pass away from a goal. Nepharim are undoubtedly physical, even cynical, but their success has been built off the backs of ruthless, fast-paced passing football.

The Godhead
For home matches, and during international tournaments, Nephara wheels out the 'Godhead', a giant boulder with an eerie resemblance to Gethin Ramsey, first manager of the Cormorants in the modern era and by now long dead. Nepharim have a superstitious streak, and while nobody's saying it is, in fact, the mystic reincarnation of their most iconic leader, nobody's quite not saying it, either. The Godhead is traditionally 'walked' to the stadium by Nepharan ultras using an intricate series of ropes, and often a flare is wedged into its 'mouth' to simulate a smoking cigar.

Manager - Elaine Koeller - Age 57
Assistant Manager - Scylla Vyntra - Age 49
Ambitious, tempestuous and self-assured, Elaine Koeller is the kind of person who thinks benevolent dictatorship would be perfectly viable if it was only her in charge. A goalkeeper in her playing days, she favours a high-tempo, aggressive pressing style that has achieved results at every club she's been at, and is convinced that she can drill it into the national team, given enough overtime on the training grounds. She has no time for disseidence and aims to create a tight-knit, resilient team culture. Remaining in situ from Ramsey's tenure, Scylla Vyntra is a former World Champion, and an experienced assistant manager with designs on a top job, somewhere. Why not here?

1 - GK - Toxothea Sebring (Image Crisisbless) - Age 24 - 4 caps, 1 clean sheet
12 - GK - Olympe Weaver (Image Stahlburg City) - Age 25 - Uncapped
20 - GK - Marko Culweather (Image North Sabrefell) - Age 25 - Uncapped

Pretty simple. Toxothea Sebring is probably Nephara's second- or third-best goalkeeper on merit, but Strand was taken along as the regional backup, giving Sebring a chance to stake her claim. Weaver and Culweather are extremely capable goalkeepers, and may get a runout.

2 - RB - August Kovac (Image Aries Chariots) - Age 25 - 10 caps
3 - LB - Auburn Delasra (Image Crisisbless) - Age 22 - Uncapped
5 - CB - Ettard Mitteager (Image AFC Treason) - Age 23 - Uncapped
6 - CB - Fuchsia Longstreet (Image Damogran FC) - Age 29 - 5 caps
18 - RB - Pahali Kama (Image Montfort Wanderers) - Age 21 - Uncapped
19 - CB - Safiya Telford (Image AFC Corvistone) - Age 22 - Uncapped
22 - CB - Helvetia Muscat (Image Sabrefell Moths) - Age 22 - Uncapped
26 - LB - Avarice Province (Image Vermillion Rage) - Age 25 - Uncapped

Set for a lot of debuts, with just fifteen caps between the eight players. The fullbacks Kovac and Delasra have the best chance of breaking through to the A-Team in the near future, while there's plenty of promise elsewhere... maybe not the best Nepharim available, but players that Koeller would prefer to see blooded at some level before they're called upon, regardless, with Longstreet brought in as the relatively experienced head.

4 - HM - Laslo Vol Brininger (Image Sabrefell Moths) - Age 22 - Uncapped
7 - RM - Esther Cadre (Image Bikarish) - Age 23 - Uncapped
8 - CM - Kirsten Desmond (Image Lakewood United) - Age 24 - Uncapped
11 - LM - Isolde Reader (Image Myana) - Age 27 - 24 caps, 5 goals
13 - RM - Dimitra Conder (Image Cuono Rangers) - Age 25 - Uncapped
15 - HM - Sonya Belltower (Image Sabrefell Athletic) - Age 27 - 29 caps
16 - LM - Arachne Loeher (Image Stahlburg City) - Age 20 - Uncapped
21 - CM - Tasha Sauber (Image Spartangrad) - Age 24 - 22 caps, 4 goals
23 - AM - Madita Brewer (Image North Laithland) - Age 20 - Uncapped
25 - CM - Bellona Sebold (Image Crisisbless) - Age 21 - Uncapped

Huge changes expected ahead. Isolde Reader offers continuity, while a number of promising young players are set to rise up, with Laslo Vol Brininger the latest in a long line of holding midfielders hoping to make the Cormorants' #4 their own. Brewer, Loeher and to a lesser extent Sebold are some of the most promising players in the country, while Tasha Sauber, a former wunderkind herself, has received something of a lease of life in Eura, and deserves another chance. It's hard to remember, sometimes, that she's still so young.

9 - ST - Vasya Reisinger (Image West Cuono Rangers) - Age 26 - Uncapped
10 - ST - Idina Slazenger (Image Parrhesia United) - Age 23 - Uncapped
14 - AM/TK - Rebecca Laskaris (Image Rene Skae) - Age 28 - 18 caps, 5 goals
17 - ST - Satine Valenza (Image Starling) - Age 22 - Uncapped
24 - ST - Visse Brass (Image Raven River) - Age 23 - Uncapped

With a larger squad and Koeller shifting towards 4-4-2, it's little surprise that all four recognised strikers are uncapped. Idina Slazenger's hopes for more than trace Cormorants representation are probably the best. Laskaris, a long-standing fringe player, is something of a false nine option, a useful wild-card for a 26-man squad.

Turori National Team

Head Coach: Tarek Edgeli
After spending 3 seasons being trained in Crosaibi at Marine Coast United, Edgeli made the switch down the coast to the Lonngeylin Coliseum for Season 43. While Strike were unable to win any silverware, Edgeli fit straight into the squad as one of the top performing defenders in the entire league earning instant plaudits and recognition back in Turori. Edgeli would be an ever-present in the Turorian squad earning the role of captain as the team advanced to the World Cup Semi Finals for the first time in the nations history at World Cup 81 in the Free Republics and Banija. After a long absence from regional competition, Edgeli, retired from the Turori National Team, would captain the Vilita and Turori National Team during the 60th AOCAF Competition.

After working with the Vilita & Turori National Team for two campaigns including the Olympic Games, Edgeli took on the role of head coach for the Turori National Team during the Eagle’s Cup XIX Competition and after leading the team to a Bronze Medal in the first attempt, returned to coach the team again during Eagle's Cup X. While Edgeli's Eel's came up just short again, earning their second consecutive Bronze Medal, the performance was enough to convince the Football Association of Turori that Edgeli was their coach of the future; relieving long time coach Klailall Tuirma of the Head Coaching duties by promoting Tuirma to the role as Competition Director of the Football Association of Turori while assigning Edgeli to the role of Turori National Team Manager for the World Cup 88 Cycle. In their first cycle as Head Coach of the Turori National Team, Tarek Edgeli led the Eels to their first World Cup Title.

Nickname: The Eels

Style: -1.23

The coaches will select the squad from the National Player pool. Players are listed below, grouped by position and sorted by projection 'Depth Chart' position where the top player listed is most likely to be named the first player selected for that position, and so on. Depth chart positions are determined by performance in pre-cup training sessions, as well as performance and average ratings in the Vilitan League competition and previous appearances for the National Team.

Note 'Caps" are shown are currently on record for Turorian Players on from the start of World Cup 80 due to federation budget re-allocations during this time period to the Cocoabo Enrichment & Enhancement Project (CEEP)

GK ( AGE: 24 :: [ NT CAPS: 53 :: NT CLEAN SHEETS: 20 ] :: [ V&T CAPS: 22 :: V&T CLEAN SHEETS: 3 ] )
TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 88 : ][ : Eagles Cup : Di Bradini Cup 50 : Olympic Gold Medal : ] EuraLeague (EUR) :
Derizi was trained in the the goalkeeper program at the Eelandii Academy. While in Eelandii, the Youth Team qualified for the IFCF Youth Cup after finishing as Top Turorian Youth side in the Tropicorp Youth Cup. Performances for the Academy resulted in a contract with Sporta Eelandii Senior Squad but the Senior Squad was relegated from the Declasse automatically triggering a release clause for the young goalkeeping prospect. Instead of staying local, Derizi opted to take their talents to Eura joining Revolutionaries as they look to take their career to the next level overseas. Amatopa’s first internationstatal tournament came with the Vilitan Union at the XIV Olympic Games and the youngster would earn a Gold Medal despite not appearing in any of the matches. It was a different situation during the 50th Di Bradini Cup when Amatopa started in three of Vilita & Turori’s 7 matches in route to the championship. Amatopa would also start the majority of matches for the Turori National Team during Eagle’s Cup X where Turori earned the Bronze Medal. On a Domestic level, Amatopa took over as starting goalkeeper for Revolutionaries at the age of 18 and earned Goalkeeper of the Season Honors during EuraLeague 45 after leading Revolutionaries to the Euraleague Title. Amatopa became a World Cup Champion when Turori defeated The Holy Empire to win World Cup 88. Amatopa led all Turori goalkeepers with seven starts in the Qualifying round as well as having started one match during the World Cup 88 Finals.

Timaala Hualtia [ - Inland Peaks FC - ]

TROPHIES :: [ : World Cup 88 : ][ : Eagles Cup : Olympic Gold Medal : ] : Vilitan Declasse :
Hualtia came through the Eelandii Academy and instantly developed as a future Turori National Team prospect. Played one season for Sporta Eelandii before their relegation from the Vilitan League prompted Hualtia to make a switch to become the starting goalkeeper at Inland Peaks during Season 59. Made first Turori National Team start during World Cup 82 Qualifying in a 2-1 victory over Kelssek. Made first ever World Cup Finals start in the World Cup 82 Semi-Final helping Turori to a 6-3 win over Farfadillis to advance to the Nations first ever World Cup Final. Hualtia is also an Olympic Medalist having earned the Gold Medal with the Vilitan Union during the XIV Olympic Games.

An'maude led Cedniavella to the 64th UICA Series 'B' Champions Cup title and then subsequently backstopped the 'Vellas to a runner-up finish in the Declasse during Season 54 and subsequent promotion to the Stellar Division. An'maude was also named Vilitan Declasse Division goalkeeper of the Season for the Season 54. While An'maude was impressive in the Stellar Division, leading Cedniavella to a top-10 finish ahead of rivals Cednia Beach AFC, the Turorian netminder was coerced out of Cedniavella to take over goalkeeper duties at Lonngeylin Coast as the heir-apparent to the aging Cilamara Issah. Was Vilita & Turori's #1 netminder on the championship winning AOCAF 56 squad and is also an Olympic Gold Medalist with the Vilitan Union during the XI Olympic Games. With the close of their career in sight, An'maude would pull one final trick out of their hat. After a loyal career played entirely for one of Turori's smaller clubs, An'maude's dedication to Turorian sport shone through as the #1 goalkeeper for the Eels during the World Cup 88 Finals. An'maude posted back to back shutouts to get the Turori National Team back into the Semi-Finals before victories over Banija and The Holy Empire would bring the World Cup Trophy to Turori for the very first time.

There were some ups and downs as Giaoka experienced relegation followed by the joy of being promoted as Declasse Champions. Giaoka was part of the Turorian squad that won the World Cup 88 Title, Cup of Champions and Eagles Cup XI.

Aeroluzzi joined Rammsissil from Surf Jettica at the age of 17 as the eventual Declasse Champions looked to bolster their squad ahead of a season 57 Stellar Division return. Aeroluzzi would play just two seasons for Rammsissil before the allure of Colonial Sile came calling. The midfielder would become a permanent fixture in the Colonial Sile roster in a decision that improved the players exposure but would ultimately reduce their silverware haul as Rammsissil would enter a period of success including internationstatal and domestic trophies while Colonial Sile continued their historical trend of high finishes in the Vilitan Stellar Division with no trophies to show for it.

Host announcement: the field is confirmed, and the first matchday will be Thursday the 15th (US Eastern time), about 72 hours from the time of this post. See the OP for schedule and draw.

There's a good chance we may overlap with the beginning (and/or the middle) of World Cup qualifying, but worry not, subsidized access to time dilation devices and handwavium will be free to all comrades.

In their first international appearance, the team using black as the kit based color. This jersey was made by a local apparel company, Gringsing. The color use for the kit is inspired by Tridatu color, which is the national color of Pemecutan. It is believe that the color can give luck and protection for the user. After being stuck as semifinalist in regional competition, they decided to change the kit as a refreshment.

Agung&Arya Fashion was contacted by PFA officials to design the new kit for the national team. It is a huge challenge for the fashion house as they are never involve in sportswear before.

Following a pair of group stage exits sandwiching their co-hosting of World Cup 90, the BPNT has seen their KPB ranking fall to 20th, so finding the correct balance within the player pool for the upcoming Qualifying for World Cup 92 is the objective of Manager Jen Prescott's immediate program.

The all-gold look will be used for the Eagles Cup, but the "Ghost Whites" change strip can also be utilized if necessary.

Electrum National Football Team
presented by Electrum Football

General Information

Once a humble team comprised of human footballers, this team is one of the few to have failed in its attempt to not win the World Cup. Indeed, this failure is only second to the real failure, never winning the multiverse's two most prestigious tournaments: the Cup of Harmony and the Eagle's Club Trophy Club Thing. Anyways after some scientific mumbo jumbo that no one really cares about to justify our disappearance from the World Cup, our kindly, most benevolent, yet mysterious five dimensional leader The Computator, four beings that share a single voice, unfroze the nation and put it back on track in terms of existing in our consciousness. Why did The Computator decide to unfreeze the nation? To learn and understand the game of football which is surely a closed, deterministic system. To test this theory, chaos is now the aim of the game for the Elecrumite national football team, with the introduction of extra-dimensional players thanks to The Computator. This strategy has finally worked with the return of Electrum to the final stages in World Cup 89, where they were the only nation to beat eventual World Cup winners Ko-oren. It really makes you think how they could not follow that up by qualifying for World Cup 90 but that's neither here nor there, anyways we've decided to not work too hard in qualifying for the World Cup and instead focus on this competition instead.

The Electrumite team is still shaking off the effect of the chrons so all of our team is nearly one year older compared to the previous World Cup. We are like elephants with long memories, long trunks and seemingly taking forever to age.

Style: 0

Statistical Information

Best World Cup record: Champion (WC78)
Worst World Cup record: Censored
WCC match record: Unknowable

Coaching Staff
Manager: Tyler Fernando
Assistant Manager: Jemima Bryant
Development Manage: Risa Shigaraki

Tyler Fernando, sentient creature with noted footballing skills, has been appointed for another cycle to manage the Electrumite team. Fernando has finally made the team's unique biological composition work with an appearance at World Cup 89 Finals. He is known for being in the World Cup Failing Team of '78, piloting the team with his superb captaincy. He is also known for dismissing that large stone in the shape of an egg which appeared for Electrum in one cycle.

Starting XI
#1 Ralph Mills - 28 - GK - Image Hamilton Sandstorm
A studious goalkeeper, Mills graduated top of his economics class and is well versed in game theory, in particular simultaneous games related to the taking of penalties. His crib notes are dozens of pages long with various analyses of opposing penalty-takers depending on any situation that may arise. Sometimes these notes may fly in the wind.

#4 Elenora Sapper - 24 - DF - Image Pinkerton FC
The youngest member of the starting XI, Sapper is QUICK with unrivalled stamina running across the pitch. She likes to provoke and get in her opponent's faces and toes the line with the referees.

#5 Bayden Forest - 29 - DF - Image Hamilton Sandstorm
A tall, bulky player who is described as a cross between a tree and a brick wall, with his intelligence between those two objects. Nice guy though.

#15 Marcus Renshaw - 28 - FW - Image FC Fairleigh-Warburton
Renshaw only communicates using emojis in group conversations and it's really starting to bug us. Also he has eczema.

#9 Sentient Energy Ball (Seb) - ?? - FW
Seb will be wearing a fabric spherical 'jacket' which conveniently looks like a normal football at certain angles. This is a strange attempt to get the opposition off for kicking a player deliberately for a red card. Let's see if it works after this strategy has been used for two cycles. When short tempered, easily short circuited.

#12 William Stewart - 26 - DF - Image University
There is absolutely nothing interesting about William Stewart except for the fact that his name is comprised of two first names.

#13 Julius van Buren - 31 - MF - Image Grenville Sailors
van Buren, as his name suggests, is very flashy. Likes to run circles around his opponents and great at manipulating the ball and getting past opponents.

#27 Crystal Le - 31 - DF - Image Kale Island Dwarfs
A long time second string player, Le finds herself with a golden opportunity after Alan Moore's retirement. Le is adept with the ball but sometimes plays too selflessly to her detriment.

#20 Nindethana Nindethana (c) - 30 - MF - Image Eastal Lunar
Nicknamed Nindethana squared, her favourite board game is Maxopoly and she is one of the few Kale Islanders on the team. She possesses mystical powers to open portals between two locations at short distance but refuses to use those advantages in a football match. Honourable.

#22 Einarsson, King of the Armoured Bears - ?? - MF
An old friend of The Computator's, Einarsson has played in the Electrumite team as a favour to our nation's leader. To him, ten years of Earth time is equivalent to six months of bear time, so really this is kind of a short vacation rather than a long-term thing.

#24 Android X4-TU in the shape of a flightless bird - ?? - MF
The talons of Android X4-TU (upgraded from version X3-TU) are known to puncture balls, so opponents are often very keen to get the ball away from it. Often matches are delayed to replace the ball.

New Gelderland — National Football Team
Roster for World Cup 92 qualifying


Manager: Image Nicoletta Arnaudo

After a sabbatical in the Savigliano countryside, Arnaudo parlayed a title winning season at Stade-Ferre in Savigliane to a four-year stint at the Chromatik club Felswyr. But the club suffered poor results in its last season, Arnaudo took the job managing the New Gelderlish women's team, initially envisioned for just the Olympics. But after Arnaudo led the team to a surprising and unprecedented gold medal, beating heavy favourites Eura in the final, the New Gelderlish Football Federation will now play in the World Cup qualifiers and perhaps beyond (but not too far beyond). Arnaudo will have the unenviable task of not having the team totally collapse against the high caliber of opposition like it did in the Eagles' Cup.

For purposes of scorination, New Gelderland will use a -2 style modifier.

Home Stadium
Two stadia will share hosting duties for this tournament:

MDs 3, 7, 11, 15, 19: National Stadium, Lexington

National Stadium

Lexington is the capital of New Gelderland and home to around 2 million people. While it does function as the capital, it also serves as a banking hub and a transportation hub, with links to Electrum. Lexington's nightlife and food options will also wow visitors at night, and in the daytime, spectators can visit any of Lexington's spectacular parkland. Lexington was founded when a group of Electrumite settlers migrated into New Gelderland looking for farming opportunities, and Lexington, situated at the confluence of the Rogue and Great Rushmori Rivers, was a perfect place to sell produce and set up markets. The stadium itself usually hosts Terranean League side Lexington Victory for its home games and sometimes hosts the New Gelderlish national team. It served as a host stadium for football at the Olympics and seats 47,500.

MDs 5, 9, 12, 17, 21: Olympic Stadium, Nassau Bay

Olympic Stadium

While not the political capital of New Gelderland, Nassau Bay is most definitely the country's economic, cultural, and sporting capital. Most of the country's premier institutions call this vibrant and cosmopolitan city of four million their home, including the country's main stock exchange, most of New Gelderland's major financial companies, and many premier cultural institutions, such as the ballet company, symphonic orchestra, choir, and theater. Nassau Bay also serves as a culinary hub, drawing on its roots as an agricultural terminus where products would be shipped from the fertile interior to other nations in Rushmore for sale, and is at the forefront of modern cuisine.

The Olympic Stadium in Nassau Bay, New Gelderland's largest city, holds a capacity of 54,000 when supporting football matches. A retractable seating area was used during the Olympics to convert the football pitch into a stadium suitable for athletics events. Olympic closing ceremonies and preliminary football matches were held in the stadium during the Olympics as well. Located in the Westmore Bluff area of Nassau Bay, the stadium's normal tenants are Olympic Nassau Bay. The stadium hosts a majority of New Gelderland's home matches in international sporting events.

RM Sarah Prescott 18 Olympic Nassau Bay
ST Jaclyn Swan-Weiss 23 Celtic Noviodunum
ST Carya Longreach 20 Lexington Victory
ST Lia Aphelion 20 Image Westgreen Park Rangers
ST Tessa Bellamy 21 Royal Queenstown

Equipped with a youngish team, playing almost entirely domestically within the Afanc Strait Superleague, manager Arnaudo has her work cut out for her against the multiverse's top teams. They've only had one tournament together, and while explicit conflicts have yet to surface, Arnaudo feels that the team's chemistry isn't all that it's cracked up to be. And with no players in the neighboring top leagues of Nephara or Eura, they have little experience playing against the quality opposition that characterizes the Eagle's Cup and the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Georgia Calder will anchor the team's defense alongside left back Zorina Engstrom, playing a mentoring role to the inexperienced Electra Villin-Sallow and Abigail Apollo. In the midfield, captain Allyson McKenna is an experienced box-to-box midfielder, supporting protege Minerva Hume Nelson, who has aspirations of being a similar player. In the wings, Tara Springsure and Camden Engstrom are young and energetic, although with a tendency to find themselves trapped too far up the field to be used for defensive purposes. Although star striker Jaclyn Swan-Weiss is entering the prime of her career, club woes at Celtic Noviodunum have hampered her performance recently. However, striking partner Carya Longreach displayed flashes of brilliance at the Olympic Games, leading to hopefulness among Gelderlish fans.

Default First Team

Player Roles
Captain: McKenna
Penalties: Swan-Weiss > Longreach > Hume-Nelson
Corners: Springsure or Engstrom
Free Kicks: McKenna or Hume-Nelson


My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:

Choose my goalscorers: YES

RP injuries to my players: YES, but no career-ending injuries.
Godmod injuries to my players: NO
Hand out yellow cards to my players: YES
Hand out red cards to my players: YES
Godmod other events: Please PM me on Discord @credo#6104 to discuss. I'm much better at responding to Discord PMs than TGs so you're more likely to get a quicker response from me.

I will ignore cannon any references to a pandemic taking place.

Team Cassadaigua- Eagles Cup XIV

Coach- Brittany Byers (58)
With Stephanie Sweeney now serving as the President of CASE, a new manager was needed for the Fillies for the first time since our return. Byers was the logical choice, since she had often been the backup national team manager, anyway. Has coached in the Copa Rushmori on multiple occasions, and was an assistant to Sweeney in World Cup 87, before being named the manager of the team prior to World Cup 88. Since that point, the results have been positive, so Brittany continues in this position for #91. Sure, there are some nations who would see a coach like this, and look at the recent run of Round of 16 exits and think that a change should be made, but CASE has never been like that. Byers is still the right person for the job. She scored her biggest coaching success recently when Cassadaigua won Copa Rushmori 40. Failing to qualify for World Cup 91 was a downer, but a third place effort in Cup of Harmony 83 made that a little easier to handle. As a player, the ex-defender played in World Cups 78 and 79, and was the captain of those teams. Also led Brattleboro FC to a national championship during her tenure there, but she no longer manages at the domestic level to focus on the national team.

Assistant- Hannah Shanley (Starksville United) (48)
Starting defender from World Cups 80-83, and then served as a regular substitute in World Cup 84. Has served in this role since World Cup 85, and that includes while she was still active as a player for a little while. Some are beginning to think that Shanley might be a little too focused on the national team, given Starksville United’s struggles of late. Shanley has been a regular assistant of Byers, but did not serve as such in the Copa Rushmori 40 title run.

Starters in Green
Subs in Blue
Reserves in Red

#20- Stacie Thornton (27) (New Lakeland Soccer Club)- Starter CR 41, Reserve WC 90 & CR 40, Sub DBC 51
#31- Cynthia Kerr (30) (Victoriaville South End)- Starter WC 90 & 91, CR 40; Sub CR 38, 39 & 41; Reserve WC 89, CR 37, Starter DBC 49
#40- Livia Richardson (33) (Rutland FC)- International Debut

After finally leading New Lakeland SC to the CSL championship, Stacie Thornton silenced all doubters that she was the best keeper in the country. Many already believed that she was, but it took the great domestic season to finally prove that she was that player. While she did start in the last Copa Rushmori, she has yet to become the #1 keeper on a World Cup team. That is something that figures to change in the upcoming World Cup, and seeing her listed as the starter here should lead to that when qualifying for the World Cup begins. Cynthia Kerr has plenty of experience, and also still elite, but the team’s failure to qualify in the last cycle doesn’t do her favors here. Since the Eagles Cup is being used mainly as preparation for qualifying, we can expect to see them arranged 1-2 in this order. Richardson was brought to the team in recognition of her career, but probably will not be on the World Cup side.

#4- Brianna Ward (28) (Victoriaville South End)- Starter WC 91, CR 40, 41& DBC 51, Sub CR 39
#2- Madison Rutland (25) (Starksville Coastal)- Starter WC 91, CR 40 & 41, DBC 51 & 52
#29- Amber Hogan (25) (Brattleboro FC)- Sub WC 91, Starter CR 40, 41 & DBC 52, Reserve DBC 51
#6- Caitlyn Kaleta (31) (Brattleboro FC)- Starter WC 88-91, DBC 49 & CR 37-41

#32- Tara Keane (30) (Victoriaville City)- Sub WC 91, DBC 49, CR 39 & 41, Reserve CR 37-38, WC 89 & 90
#21- Hailey Meyer (24) (Zenit Attawapiskat, Quebec)- Starter DBC 52, Sub CR 41

#24- Sarah Bayne (31) (Brattleboro Westside)- Starter DBC 49, CR 37-39; Sub WC 89-90 & CR 40, Reserve WC 88 & 91, CR 41
#3- Rachel Becker (21) (New Lakeland SC)- Reserve CR 41

This is the same group that you saw in the last Copa Rushmori. It’s a group that Byers wants to continue to have play together, but keep an eye out for Hailey Meyer here in the Eagles Cup. This is the perfect opportunity for the team to see her get significant playing time with the starters before qualifying for the World Cup actually begins.

#9- Morgan Rosenblatt (32) (AFC Treson, Nephara)- Starter WC 87-91, DBC 48 & 49, CR 36-39 & 41 (TEAM CAPTAIN)
#25- Kelsey Werth (25) (Cednia Beach, Turori)- Starter WC 91, CR 40 & 41, DBC 52; Sub DBC 51
#35- Marquis Miles (22) (Victoriaville City)- Reserve CR 41
#8- Krystal Sherwin (27) (Northern Union, Brenecia)- Starter WC 90 & 91, DBC 51, CR 39-41

#38- Emily Doran (26) (North Granby)- Sub WC 91, CR 40, 41 & DBC 51, Reserve CR 39
#36- Kaitlin Millikan (20) (Concord Heights City)- International Debut

#37- Lori Garland (26) (Rutland Dockside)- Starter DBC 51 & 52, Sub CR 40, Reserve CR 41
#44- Jenna Stokley (21) (New Lakeland SC)- International Debut

The core of this group remains in tact, and Morgan Rosenblatt is coming off a very good year in Nephara, so don’t think that she’s slowing down at all. The new starter is Marquis Miles, who is a defensive stalwart who’s not afraid to get physical. The team has lacked a male starter since Preston Newfeld retired, so many will be watching him closely as many at home would love to see him starting in the World Cup as well. Kailtin Millikan will also likely get a lot of minutes in the Eagles Cup.

#19- Chloe Anderson (24) (Montreal Koreana, Quebec)- Starter CR 40, 41 & DBC 51, Wub WC 90 & 91
#26- Rachel Boldin (24) (Victoriaville South End)- Starter CR 40, 41 & DBC 51, Sub WC 90 & 91

#23- Bayley Stanton (31) (Concord Heights City)- Starter WC 90, DBC 47 & CR 38, Reserve WC 88 & 89, CR 36 & 37, Sub CR 39
#27- Allyson Perry (23) (Winchester City)- Sub CR 41, Starter DBC 52, Reserve WC 91

#28- Carly Patterson (24) (Grande Mountain)- Starter DBC 52, Reserve WC 91, CR 41
#43- Lexi McGregor (18) (Starksville United)- International Debut

Style Modifier: + 2.7

(Pink= home, White= away, Black= keeper or third. Thanks Donnacona!)
If there is a conflict with the white kit, the team will wear pink.
If there is a conflict with the pink kit, we will first compliment the other team on their choice of uniform color. We should probably get to know one another better. Then, wear white.

Retired Kit Numbers:
#1 is retired in honor of Allison Salamida
#5 is retired in honor of Michelle Fuller
#7 is retired in honor of Shannon Myers
#10 is retired in honor of Brittany Lawton
#11 is retired in honor of Courtney Ferguson
#13 is retired in honor of Meaghan Bateman
#14 is retired in honor of Stacie Kerrigan-Fraser
#15 is retired in honor of Erica Lambert
#17 is retired in honor of Jessica Schanke
#18 is retired in honor of Taylor Connolly
#22 is retired in honor of Lupe Enriquez
#33 is retired in honor of Hannah Ranucci

For now, #16 is not worn in honor of Meghan Wolcott, but the number has not been retired.

The team was dealt shocking news when Jenna Frontiera declared that she will only not be back on the international team, but that she is retiring from professional soccer entirely, despite only just turning 30. We’ll cover that a little more as we go on. Other names here are familiar, and the next phenom, Lexi McGregor gets a taste of this level now but probably will not be part of the World Cup roster.

Manager: Kate DiMarini. Originally from Baker Park and an assistant to the national team there, she then took over at Trebuchet Cham for several seasons, leading them to the Champions' League group stage before she took this job. Named interim manager halfway through WC87 qualifiers, and steadied the course, as Zwangzug qualified to the proper after a rocky start, now full-time.

For this tournament, all our home games are played at the Eagles' Club facility in Forbridge.

We have a wiki page where I am slowly migrating information about the team. (Subpage with player details)

Colors: White with black stripes. Or black with white stripes. We go for the basics.

Zwangzug officially have no nickname, but are increasingly likely to respond to "Zebras" from other teams' fans (this is the official name of their baseball national team).

If RPing first, please feel free to name goalscorers, injure, and distribute cards to my players at will! You can also godmod events, though I'd appreciate advance warning if you want to take narrative liberties that I couldn't just as easily do to your team (due to being, e.g., a mostly-MT, mostly-human country). Put another way, metaphorical "godmodding" is welcome if clever, but I'd avoid the literal sense. Also, do not cause lasting harm in my country and/or to my citizens without contacting me first.

Frontiera’s shocking announcement,
by Chelsea Dufresne, Concord Heights

The soccer career of Jenna Frontiera is over, leaving many scratching their heads. She just celebrated her 30th birthday a couple months ago, and while that is an age where players may start to see their skills decline a bit, it doesn’t have to mean more than that. For Frontiera, she was coming off an excellent season with Brattleboro FC, and certainly was going to be a part of the World Cup roster once again. Perhaps the younger forwards, Chloe Anderson and Rachel Boldin could have given her a run for her money in as far as starting was concerned, but Frontiera certainly would have been on the team and played an integral role. Then, came the stunning retirement announcement.

“I wish to move on with the next chapter of my life,” Frontiera said in her announcement, “this means getting married and having children. I don’t want to be like other athletes who wait until their mid to late 30's to retire and then they are rushing to have kids quickly. I’ve done enough in soccer. I have won CSL titles with Brattleboro FC and represented Cassadaigua in the World Cup on several occasions. I have won a Copa Rushmori title. The only thing that I would really have to do in my career would be to win a World Cup, but only select few people are able to accomplish that. So, I am satisfied with what I have, it is time to move on.” Brattleboro FC fans are going to be the ones affected the most, but the team will likely throw some money around to where they will be able to get by. This will impact the national team, we think. Although, there is a school of thought out there that Frontiera saw the writing on the wall with both Anderson and Boldin, as well as 23-year old Allyson Perry. The team is going to go through a youth moment at her position, and Frontiera has been criticized for underachieving during World Cup qualifying for the last two World Cups. With the last effort resulting in Cassadaigua’s failure to qualify, there may have been pressure on manager Brittany Byers to focus more on the next generation of forwards. I am personally not among that school of thought. Bayley Stanton was still going to start with Frontiera alongside her with Anderson and Boldin being substitutes. Now, Byers is going to be in a tough situation to choose who starts along Stanton: Anderson or Boldin? The two of them have very similar statistics at the international level. Although, with the way the Eagles Cup roster is constructed, maybe Stanton will not start. I have hard time believing that, though.

Like last time, the Eagles Cup will replace the series of pre-qualifying friendlies that Cassadiagua has unless they have a quick exit. Then, you will likely see some friendlies get scheduled. Byers believes that the Eagles Cup provides an elevated level of competition that friendlies will never provide, and therefore are the better preliminary games. Hopefully, we will do better in this competition this time around.

The Kerlagrad Courier

DiMarini counts to 26, astounds fans

In what has come as a surprise to many fans, Kate DiMarini has named twenty-six players to the national team for Eagles Cup 14. "I wasn't aware there were twenty-six Zwangzugians with names in the whole freaking 1./," said Ellen Mirdrin, of Kerlagrad. "Okay, twenty-three, without Axelrod-Conway and Ngyuen and Richardson."

"Look, there's a good chance that this tournament might not wrap up until the qualifiers are getting underway," DiMarini said. "We need to be ready to take a full squad there. Plus, we're allowed like five substitutions now, I think?"

"You can't tell me the World Cup Committee suddenly decided to give us permission to do that," retorted Callan Herschel-Green, of Spenson. "I mean, look, you see the kinds of teams they allow, they really don't give a rip."

There are seven new players on the roster, but the uniform-numbering scheme strongly suggests that Freda Tery-Wilf, Nina Irving, Soumini Bano-Patil, and Evan Dewey were replacements for the recently retired Kausalya Vizirani, Jesse McWhorter, Fedya Troy-Vee, and Junia McCue, respectively. This would mean that Shlomo Eustace, Ashley Fillmore-Gaul, and Ryota Imamura were hastily added to the list as soon as DiMarini realized no one would stop her from doing so, but perhaps are more likely to be there for the future/in case of freakish injury/illness rates. They will sport jerseys 24, 25, and 26, for the first time since Dana Bloomquist, Bennett Covy, and Natasha Keller, respectively, hung them up.

"Why does our guy have to be #24?" groused Brandon Walker, of Bassabook. "That's so gaaaaaay." [While Cafundelense numerology has certainly had an important influence on the football world, the Courier reminds fans that insulting players' or anyone else's sexual orientation is poor form. -ed]

"Look, I know the Rovers had that whole pandemic thing, but honestly if half the team is forced to quarantine because of exposure to a deadly respiratory virus I'm not sure five substitutes are really gonna help," said Bernie Oswald-Ramirez, of the west FTC.

"This is a shameful decision that will dilute the value of a cap in the highest echelons of international football," complained Natalie Edglar, of Weegham, who apparently has been laboring under the delusion that Zwangzug is inhabited by very serious people who have always understood football conventions in the most ordinary and conventional ways of the multiverse.

At press time, Corey Richardson had returned to the 1./, meaning there are now at least twenty-four Zwangzugians with names in the whole freaking league.

Kit credit (IC: Ferideia; OOC: Tikariot)

Team name: Græntfjall
Trigram: GRÆ [GRF when not available]
Demonym/adjective: Græntfjaller
Team nickname: Snow Wolves

Coach: Image Ingþór Auðbjörnsson
Assistant coach: Image Saxi Dómaldsson

Thor had two tough jobs on taking over as manager: living up to the standards set by Valhalla-bound Igrene Cantor, and improving the woeful Copa Rushmori record of the Snow Wolves. One Copa Rushmori title later… It may be early to judge but Thor has at least seemed to settle in nicely, perhaps reflecting his already having found a welcoming home in Græntfjall, where has has previously served as manager of GT Molding, taking the club to their first silverware in decades with the Cup, then next season winning the league title and then repeating the trick. His more attacking approach has proved something of a culture shock for a Snow Wolves that very nearly won the World Cup without bothering to score any goals in regulation, but they adapted to play some free-flowing, fascinating, fun football in the Copa. Former U18 assistant manager Saxi Dómaldsson has been moved up to assistant.

Squad: A 26-person squad has been named for the tournament, and we will use five substitutes per game. If you do not recognize 26/5, then ignore our last 2 substitutions and assume our 3 extra players on the roster are just there to provide moral support.
  • Names. -son names are men, -dóttir names women. Græntfjallers are comfortable having their first name used instead of their surnames, though there’s no consistent standard on this. Players without a patronymic surname are Kamdyr, members of a minority nomadic community; Jasmijn is female. Hanif is sometimes referred to as Hanif Anwar, omitting the -sson.
  • Sex. The Græntfjaller Premier League is unisex and it is seen as uncontroversial for men and women to play alongside each other. We will by default play a mixed team, an all-male against those who play all-male squads, and an all-female squad against those who play all-female squads [meaning that we will play an all-female team against New Gelderland].
  • Transfers. The financial status of football in Græntfjall is improving, and million+ NS$ contracts are increasingly common. But because the GPL isn’t especially strong, most NT players and hopefuls ply their trade abroad. I normally conduct transfers through the Transfer Window but if you have a desire to sign a player I am usually open to arranging a transfer outside that; send a TG/DM. I am particularly open to such deals when linked to an ongoing RP story.
  • Style of play. In general, Græntfjaller players are athletic and have excellent whole-match fitness, disciplined, and not prone to violence or emotional outbursts. They are, however, not tremendously skilled. A particular type of footballer, nicknamed “BFG” (Big Fucking Græntfjaller), is associated with the country, normally playing in roles such as center back, defensive midfielder, or center forward. The new crop of, predominantly though not exclusively, female central midfielders somewhat eschew this stereotype and there have been growing attempts to get more skilful players into the lineup, most notably Sara Kristoffersdóttir and Kæja Finnvarðsdóttir.
  • Tournament philosophy: Græntfjall has traditionally approached the Eagl’e’s’ Cup in a slightly experimental spirit, while at the same time aiming to put out a team capable of playing at international level. Previous selection criteria have included: all domestic players, all women, players who had previously missed out on playing at the Eagl’e’s’ Cup, and a representative from each of the prior 23 international squads. The last edition saw KG send a full-strength squad for the first time; dispiritingly, it also marked their worst ever performance! For this tournament, new manager Thor has been permitted to chose as he wishes, meaning the squad is full-strength-ish, with the ish reflecting a couple of older players being given rest and a couple of positions still in question being given more scrutiny.
  • Captaincy. Johanna Álvgeirsdóttir continues as captain, but in the event she does not play, we will revert to an elective model and if I have not specified a captain, you may pick should you wish.
  • Timing. In my timeline this occurs 1 year after the last CR and 2 years after the WC. It occurs in the winter immediately before WCQ begins; it does not overlap with the WCQs in my canon. It occurs after TW37 has concluded and any players signed during this period will be on their new team.

Home arena: National High Performance Sports Center, Græntfjaller Multinesia

For Græntfjaller Eagl’e’s’ Cup teams, it has become a tradition for all ‘home’ games to be played at the National High Performance Sports Center. This obviates any home advantage and may in fact disadvantage Græntfjaller players who have previously struggled in tropical conditions, but there is a clear secondary aim of gaining experience in the conditions, which are likely to be hot and humid, but not unbearably so.

The NHPSC is a large multi-sports complex featuring training areas for almost every Olympic and other major sport that Græntfjall competes in. The stadium has now met its full planned capacity of 50,000 and is up to full international standards, though corporate hospitality remains limited in availability. The NHPSC is based in Græntfjaller Multinesia, the largest constituent island of the Græntfjaller South Indies. Where these lie is somewhat confusing as those consulting the Rushmori regional map will find no reference to them: they certainly exist though and lie in tropical oceans far to the south east/west/up/down/strange/charm/other of the Græntfjaller mainland.

The Græntfjaller South Indies were the only major colonial possession of the Queendom captured during the Age of Piracy. During the 20th century, Græntfjall fell under communist rule and the islands were granted independence, an unfortunate oversight which was quickly corrected in the immediate post-communist era, welcoming the islanders back under the benevolent and wise rule of the mainland, which has brought them many modern amenities such as industrial strip-mining of the landscape, while employment opportunities abound in the sweatshops of the Export Processing Zones that, free from international labor regulations, are veritable hives of industry churning out produce for the Græntfjaller and international markets nearly round-the-clock! Many natural beauty spots have been preserved, however, most of them now playing home to luxury vacation resorts, private residences, and golf courses.

There is a naval base, multiple air strips, and a full marine battalion, on the islands, and a heavily military presence is noticeable. There are some restricted areas where photography is not permitted and some areas of the islands are completely off-limits. Have no fear, though, security is assured, and terrorist groups such as the savage “Multinesian Human Rights Council” and “Indigenous People’s Clean Water Defence Fund” are being firmly policed to prevent any rogue action such as passing on documentation of the pollution of their tribal homelands.

Note: this should also obviate any concerns about recent developments as the games will not be being played in Græntfjall proper.

(Optional challenges will be offered along with the cutoffs. These are not necessary to award RP bonus, but may be a source of inspiration.)

It's about that time, time to determine the first round of winners...and losers. Does your country, or individual teams within it, have any particularly haunting defeats in their history? (Sports, military, electoral?) What lessons do people take from them, past and present? Or is it just a hamfisted attempt to force morality out of random narratives?

Aminey, Aminey - Stade sur la Baie (70000) - home to Aminey CS (and the Aminey Caspians, Aminey Buffaloes, and Aminey Owls).
The flagship stadium, huge production values, the works.

Schemerdrecht, Intermare - Orange Bowl (54000) - home to Schemerdrecht SVV (and the Schemerdrecht Admirals).
More associated perhaps with the Admirals than the SVV, but it's nearly always sold out venue for great crowds in any sport.

Maethoru, KCT - Rikalathen Arena (39000) - home to Maethoru SC (and Mayara Wanderers-Vulpecula).
Close to the KFA's training grounds, at least it has that going for it. Crowds aren't great here.

Étouille, Cote Austral - Stade Amandine (30000) - home to Tanques AOE (and the Etouille Vultures).
Some amazing drone shots over a stadium, a city, and a crowd that knows what makes life fun.

Santa Teresa, Finisterre - Estádio Fortaleza (29000) - home to Miradela GD (and the Santa Teresa Sabres).
Made to be exactly 1000 seats larger than their rivals' stadium, the Fortaleza is the upper-class stadium.
Santa Teresa, Finisterre - Estádio Marítimo (28000) - home to Branvon CD.
The working class stadium that is, in all facets, a bit inferior to the Fortaleza. Except the crowds. There's no better stadium for wild crowds.

Maynard, Leeshire - Armskirk Municipal Ground (26000) - home to Maynard AFC.
The unlucky Maynard team have asked the KFA to have their stadium used by the national team - as the only southwestern stadium.

Katashi, Katashi - Suzumebachi Stadium (25000) - home to Katashi-Kanatsu.
The biggest stadium in the east, Katashi deserves a game. The fans will mostly just cheer for the Yoshiman players, though.

Greencaster, Surbourneshire - Golhampton Grounds (25000) - home to lower league Langward.
Greencaster is our largest city and... that's their only claim to a Dragonflies home game.

Aevanna, Aerellen - Northern Arena (32000) - home to university team 'Aevanna Ecologiske Universitet'.
The KFA wants some games geographically spread across the country, and so the cold, dark, and cold gridiron Northern Arena is on the list.

Warning: jersey numbers are duodecimal: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-X-=-10. X stands for 10 (using the Roman numeral as shorthand), = for eleven (tilt your head to see something that looks like two ones side by side).

1 GK Wemagun Cyamou (KOR, 21) - Amandine AdF a questioning, plump, tactician
10 GK Goswijn Naaldemaker (KOR, 16) - Technische Universiteit Sterrenwolde a loving, powerful, clown

Cyamou, trying out for WSR AFC but signing with Amandine, is Ko-oren's long term option. Naaldemaker is the brightest star in the university and academy systems at the position, for now. Cyamou should start every match as the clearly better option.

2 RF Kaneyoshi Kaji (KOR, 18) - Katashi-Kanatsu a dense, petite, mercenary
11 RF Aoremis Aelea (KOR, 23) - Branvon CD a loud, fit, tackler
3 RB Hunusu Siltinthen (KOR, 23) - Maethoru SC a lucky, agile, mercenary
12 RB Godefroy Poullain (KOR, 22) - Gehrenna FC a plucky, towering, cheater
4 CB Egesa Aedil (KOR, 18) - Tanques AOE a polite, muscular, wall
13 CB Niniaw yLleamaid (KOR, 21) - WSR AFC a spoiled, quick, technician
5 LB Abi Lavaud (KOR, 23) - Montreal Koreana, QUE a idiosyncratic, fast, dissenter
14 LB Obadiah Gillinghurst (KOR, 19) - Schemerdrecht SVV a soft, powerful, leader
6 LF Min-Ji (f) Pae (KOR, 21) - WSR AFC a persistant, staunch, penalty specialist
15 LF Ryuza Wakaizumi (KOR, 24) - Branvon CD a fearless, bony, communicator

Kaji is a huge talent who should be a part of the 'old' team, a slightly attacking fullback rightfully employed by slightly attacking Katashi. The centreback positions are a little varied in skill and to what extent the players have been able to show their talent, but Aedil is the real deal. Already playing for Top League side Tanques AOE, the rock solid defender has the world at his feet. Lavaud is less of a decision maker but still a very skilled player. Gillinghurst was selected ahead of a third option at the position, Thomas Finsterrais, as these three players will likely supply the NT with a left centre back for the next two decades. The right centre back position is less cemented, so yLleamaid and Gillinghurst could turn out there as well. Siltinthen does start for Maethoru sometimes. Poullain, much like Gehrenna, is a bit of question mark though we know the ceiling is high.

7 DM Orinosuke Uozumi (KOR, 21) - Katashi-Kanatsu a circumspect, trim, aggressor
8 RM Ciriaco Laza (KOR, 18) - Miradela GD a cruel, compact, showman
16 RM Kazutoshi Vujimura (KOR, 24) - Teragaseki a witty, hard-hitting, visionary
9 CM Purelbusak Entatingun (KOR, 21) - Maethoru SC a noncompetitive, heavy, mercenary
17 CM Ryobe Takagaki (KOR, 21) - Katashi-Kanatsu a evasive, pudgy, creator
18 LM Horace Humphries (KOR, 23) - a inconsiderate, hard-hitting, poacher
19 LM Sadahige Masuda (KOR, 20) - North Laithland, NPH a willing, heavy, debater
X AM Rachel (f) Walbuck (KOR, 20) - Tanques AOE a fearless, toned, workhorse

Entatingun is the playmaker of the old NT so there's no question that he's the focal point of the team. He should get most help from Laza who came up through the ranks very quickly in the last half year to earn a contract with Miradela, fitting their personality requirements as a somewhat glamorous yet ruthless on-field character. Uozomi, once dubbed the reincarnation of Yokota, has had a difficult season and there's no certainty about whether he'll make it in the NT or if he fizzles out early in his career. That said, the expectations are high. Takagaki and Walbuck are pretty good so far as well, so the most likely midfield is a diamond with Uozomi and Walbuck in front and behind, and the two central mids close to each other on a narrow midfield. Laza deserves more playing time, and can start alongside Entatingun in a slightly lopsided midfield with one winger...

1= SS Wijbrand Deckere (KOR, 18) - Schemerdrecht SVV a complex, stringy, box-to-box player
= ST Dornared yOraenaig (KOR, 18) - Sydberg Olympia a reserved, burly, artist
1X ST Loren Lemaigre (KOR, 22) - CSKA Quebec Academy, QUE a helpful, nimble, shadow
20 ST Richard Twickaway (KOR, 20) - Sydberg Olympia a mature, well built, journeyman

yOraenaig is a huge talent who's a little more comfortable on the ball than most Ko-orenite NT strikers. A more typical option is Lemaigre, who needs half a chance to score a full goal, and Twickaway, who'll have to develop quite a bit but his maturity for his age helps him tremendously.

We play post-football, a term coined during World Cup 89 to put words to a horrible semifinal between Audioslavia and the Dragonflies, which ended 0-0 after 120 minutes, then all but one penalty was scored in the ensuing series. Post-football means no singing. No cheering. No scoring. Post-football is sideways passes, looking like the same, repetitive movements for minutes on end, but with tiny variations that at some point will get to you. It could be a counterattack, or a shot from distance, or a set piece. Post-football doesn't care if it takes 90 or 120 minutes, or more.

This team is all about containing their opponent, letting them make mistakes, and capitalising on those. Let the other guys get impatient, lose the ball, and immediately go for the counter attack. Yes, it's frustrating to play against, but you have to admit that there's a certain beauty to doing this near-flawlessly every single time. The Dragonflies aren't a very physical team, but can match almost every opponent in stamina (not so much power or speed, though. Typically only the wingers are pacy). Instead, they rely on tactics and patience. The team is also good enough to be in possession a lot and dictate the tempo, though they're not always creative enough to break down the opposing defence - for that, the Dragonflies have learned to be very, very good on counterattacks, set pieces, and a few patterns in open play. Given the experience most of these players have, it's hard to come up with something new they've never seen - and then do that well enough to reliably score. In order to beat us, you'll need to bring two (or more) of the following: power, speed, caution.

Basically, this team comes prepared, is patient, and keeps a cool head.

Numbers 1 to = typically start (but not always, feel free to choose your starters). That's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, X, and =.
Numbers 1-1= are typically selected as starters or subs (but not always, feel free to select some 23+-ers as subs or starters).
Numbers 20 and over are mostly there as emergency replacements, but can be part of the squad for some games. These are almost always younger players with a lot of promise.

The standard for this team. Five defenders, a defensive midfielder-slash-pivot, two wingers, an attacking midfielder-annex-second striker, and a pure finisher up front. In possession, one of the defenders can push up: this might be one of the fullbacks to provide width, but can also be one of the centrebacks, in which case the defensive midfielder makes way. The wingers will be wider or narrower based on the opposition, and the same determines how far the fullbacks will advance. In defence, the team becomes narrower, with the defensive midfielder playing spoiler to whoever is trying to find space between the Ko-orenite lines, and the wingers falling back to meet opposing fullbacks. The striker and attacking midfielder will almost always look for space to launch a counterattack.
The alternate lineup, which still adheres to a basic 5-4-1. You could call it a 5-5-0, seeing as the striker is sitting back much further. This lineup works the exact same for the defenders, with or without possession. The defensive and central midfielder are pivots, the wingers have far more freedom to find space, and the striker drops back to receive the ball and allow other players to overlap, enabling them to score a goal rather than the striker themselves. In defence, the midfielders can organically shrink and expand their 'pentagram-five' formation much more fluidly.

HUElavia 1-1 Flavovespia

In their Eagle’s Cup debut, Flavovespia played out a score draw against HUElavia as the sides looked to make it out of the Confederations Qualifying Group. Interest was high amongst Flavovespians, as the side had the chance to partake in a “Champions of Champions” style tournament, a good curtain raiser for the next World Cup cycle. New kits, the all black away one for Flavovespia, and a slightly adjusted side were also on display.

Flavovespia kicked off with just the one change from the CAFA Cup 4 winning starting 11. Paul Taylor was now alongside Stuart Cookson in the defence. An early test came when David Navarro-Hamada whipped in a great cross, but Cookson did brilliantly to head it away from any danger, not even conceding a corner in the process. HUElavia were the stronger side in the first 30 minutes or so, and Aarif Muhammad also needed to be in fine form to keep Flavovespia from falling behind. 32 minutes in and Flavovespia nearly scored against the run of play. Jonathan Bagshaw got free down the wing, and sent in an angled cross. It beat Ignacio Casillas in the air, but was just too far ahead of Michael Cole to be able to latch onto it and turn it in. That was the best chance Flavovespia had, and at half time they were thankful in a way it was goalless.

Whatever Augusto Rinaldi said at the break had an immediate positive impact. 2 minutes into the second half, and Kieron Player’s long ball forward set Adrian Jones through on goal. Casillas tried to narrow the angle, but Jones slotted the ball in low to give Flavovespia the lead. However, 10 minutes later, just as Flavovespia looked to be asserting control, the equaliser came. Elena Bellerose gave David Blythe the slip, and then had room to shoot from outside the box. She did, and the shot left Aarif Muhammad with no chance. The equaliser with just over half an hour to go, setting up an interesting second half.

The second half turned into one of plenty of half chances, but no decisive breakthrough or major chances. HUElavia saw the majority of the ball, but found Flavovespia stubborn in defence and hard to break down. There were more shots from outside the box, but none that really threatened. Flavovespia kept their more direct game up, but HUElavia did a good job nullifying the pace of Cole and Bagshaw, and substitute Amrik Singh in the final minutes.

1-1 it would finish, the same result in the other group game. Ultimately Flavovespia can’t be too disappointed with a point after a shaky start, however they’ll see the game against Tecoia as crucial to get a win to try and progress.

Tecoia 0-3 Flavovespia

Flavovespia pulled out an impressive display to beat Tecoia and take a big step in progressing to the Eagle’s Cup Confederations Group. Not quite a must win, but certainly an important game, Flavovespia showed their skill and resolve here.

One change from the previous game saw Andrew Dance replace David Blythe at right back. Like the last game as well, it was something of a slow start for Flavovespia, with Tecoia having a few half chances saved by Aarif Muhammad within the first 15 minutes. Tecoia were quickest out of the gate and were pressing to take the lead, but just lacked the clinical edge.

The final 5 minutes of the first half proved key. The opening goal came from the Bagshaw to Cole combination. Almost a repeat of the HUElavia game, Bagshaw sent in an angled cross towards the far post and Michael Cole. Again it beat the goalkeeper, but crucially this time Cole was able to get to the ball and head it over the line. Then, in the 43rd minute, a careless pass at the back fell into the path of Michael Cole. He was clean through, and made no mistake with the finish. From looking like it’d be scoreless at the break, Flavovespia went in with a 2 goal lead.

The second half was one of sensible control from Flavovespia. Tecoia struggled to replicate their start from the first half, and as the minutes ticked on, Flavovespia looked more relaxed and confident. Substitute Robert Totten would make it a 3 goal lead in the 78th minute. Kieron Player’s free kick wasn’t cleared well, and in a bit of a scramble it was Totten who eventually got a clean shot away and in. The last minutes saw a double substitution to give Michael Hornby and Malcolm Beresford their debuts for Flavovespia.

Flavovespia will be assured of a place in the Confederations Group Stage, should they avoid a defeat to Cassadaigua. HUElavia failing to defeat Tecoia will also almost certainly send Flavovespia through. Nevertheless, Flavovespia will still likely try and play for a win against Cassadaigua, with Rinaldi keen to avoid making too many changes to what he sees as a winning strategy.

Eagle's Cup Participation Dismiss the Resignation Rumour

Pemecutan Puri - Following yet another disappointment result at 11th MAC final, there was a rumour spread in the country about the resignation of the men's football team manager, Surya Agung Pramana. No one know who spread the rumour first but it was believe that the speculation arise after CMFA sanctioned over the country after the riot at the end of the final match. On an interview, Pramana implicitly referring to his possibility to resign as the national team's manager. During the interview he expressed his disappointment and how he had buried the nation's dream to lifted the trophy for the first time. "I'm not a good manager". This sentence that sparks the rumour.

When the rumour was confirmed to PFA official's, no exact answer was given. The Spokesperson only mention that Pramana's position was being reviewed. But no further announcement happened. Until the country is invited to Eagle's Cup. The second for the country. And Pramana's name is in the team officials list as manager.

We give another chance for Mr. Pramana to lead our national team until the next Mandalanusa Cup.

PFA spokesperson

This news subside the rumour rapidly. Pramana himself stated his grateful for the opportunity and he will do the best for the country. And the result can be seen at the start of Eagle's Select Group. The team success to score a full point from its first two matches, against Ko-oren and Electrum. Although Pramana hinted their fragile defense. Despite a huge goal that the team scored but they were also conceded a lot of goals. Herman Putrawan who is re-call for national team after his great domestic performance last season was performed lower than what's Pramana expected. Pramana said that there might be a change in the squad for the next 2 matches. They will be playing against StrayaRoos for the last of the first leg. And they will meet Ko-oren for their second meeting. StrayaRoos was quite surprising after their 1-0 win against Ko-oren. While this have been a bad start for Ko-oren where they were losing both their first two matches.

Home Stadium Allocations for Confederations Group

vs Banija Away Game
vs Confederations' Qualifying Group 2nd Place: @ Trenton Park, Lakewood (cap: 74,500)

Tumbra's fairly-defined, rigid two party plus system has been in place since the early 20th century; since 1898, all Prime Ministers have come from either the centre-left Labour Party or the centre-right Liberal/National coalition. If we're counting predecessors, then that lineage goes back to 1882, when the Commonwealth Party, widely seen as a party that largely preceded Labour, gave Tumbra the first of three Prime Ministers.

Both the centre-left and centre-right have won huge victories; which in turn have meant that the opposite side has lost, dramatically. Compared to the scale of other electoral wipeouts, though — see the Krytenian drubbing of Charles Linton's Reform Party after the Atlantian Oceania-Anaia split, which saw their party go from three hundred and one seats to just four — these defeats have been relatively minor. Former Federal Constitutional Court justice, Michelle Ruth Gerwitz, perhaps put it best when she said that the defining sign of Tumbran politics was the pendulum; it may swing one way at some points in time, but it will almost always swing back.

What is relatively interesting, however, is the short span of time in which both Labour's and the Liberals' biggest electoral victories occurred. Labour's occurred in 1969, at the height of Malcolm Haywood's popularity; while the Liberals' victory in 1980 ushered in a twelve-year tenure of possibly the most economically liberal government. Today we do a deeper dive into what made those elections as lopsided (in the Tumbran context) as they did; and whether those unique circumstances might be re-enacted in today's political climate.

1969: Malcolm Haywood's Third Term


Full Results
Labour: 400 seats, 49.08% of first preference votes
Liberal: 200 seats, 40.28% of first preference votes
Moderate: 10 seats, 7.07% of first preference votes
Conservative: 3 seats, 2.56% of first preference votes
Social Democratic: 2 seats, 1.04% of first preference votes

Two-party preferred vote
Labour: 56.92%
Liberal: 43.08%

What made this election victory all the more surprising in retrospect was just how difficult it seemed to be to attain. Winning 400 seats on 49% of the first preference votes seems difficult enough already, but the Liberals winning exactly half that total while only winning ten percent less of the vote would be unthinkable in today's circumstances. In many cases it seemed that Labour spread their votes out more evenly; in over a hundred seats they finished second after the first count of votes, while they won dramatically after preferences were re-directed, while the Liberals tended to rack up huge majorities in the 200 seats they eventually ended the night on. In Gianne (Iswilyn) they racked up 72% of first preference votes; while in most suburban seats they tended to pick up something like 44% of the vote to Labour's 40-42%, before Moderate preferences delivered the seats to Labour.

What made things even more surprising was that this election result was delivered on the back of a very modest 2% swing to the Liberals. Four years earlier, Malcolm Haywood won 356 seats on 47% of the popular vote; former Marlsbruhe premier Timothy Fraser won a relatively modest 247 seats (losing 50 seats in the process) on 42% of the vote. The signs that Labour were about to pick up an even bigger victory were already there in that election; and the enduring popularity of Malcolm Haywood only served to increase the margin of victory.

Haywood, who was in his sixth year of sixteen as Prime Minister, had re-nationalised the steel industry, began construction on a network of nationwide railway lines that would later become the backbone of today's high-speed railway network, founded the Tumbran Health Service and had overseen a remarkable period of economic stability, capping off nearly twenty-five years of uninterrupted growth. He was personally popular — a reputation of someone who was a "doer" rather than a "sayer" had endeared him to a large section of the Tumbran populace — and made himself the centrepiece of the Labour campaign. The betting markets — which in those days were remarkable for their accuracy, more so than the hitherto relatively untested field of "exit polling" — opened with Labour with evens to win, and closed a remarkable five days before the election with Labour having the remarkable odds of 1/3.

To further ease the odds in his direction, Haywood had five years earlier abolished the university constituencies; an archaic construction of the first hundred years of the Republic, following in an utilitarian tradition that dictated that the educated should receive more votes. The fifteen seats had always turned out to be Liberal strongholds; as graduates from universities almost always voted Liberal at the time.

The victory was a fairly foregone conclusion, but what the most surprising moment of election night turned out to be was the calculation of preference flows; where it turned out that Labour had won 78% of Moderate preferences and 52% of the right-wing Conservative Party's preferences. Fraser resigned as Liberal leader almost immediately after the defeat, disclaimed his victory in his seat of Princetown and retired from front-line politics soon after. The Liberals were shattered; they had lost ninety-seven seats in six years, and were reduced to (for their standards) a rump caucus in the House of Representatives. For Labour and Haywood, it marked the zenith of his power; four years later, he would come within six seats of losing his majority, and the economic winds would turn against him for the more tumultuous last six years of his premiership.

1980: The Rainier Revolution


Full Results
Liberal: 417 seats, 47.75% of first preference votes
Labour: 205 seats, 30.62% of first preference votes
Moderate: 23 seats, 14.78% of first preference votes
Conservative: 3 seats, 5.72% of first preference votes
Social Democratic: 2 seats, 1.13% of first preference votes

Two-party preferred vote
Liberal: 60.19%
Labour: 39.81%

That it took just eleven years for the Liberals to recover from that defeat was remarkable; that this election result did not provide the country's largest-ever parliamentary majority proved to be even more remarkable. The Rainier Revolution of 1980 produced a majority for the Liberals of a 184; but Haywood's landslide victory of 1969 produced a majority of 185. Rainier's first election victory, however, remains the most lopsided victory in terms of both the margin of seats and the two-party preferred vote; the 21% difference between the two major parties has never been bettered.

By the late 1970s, Haywood's government had run out of steam: amidst the economic headwinds of the decade, a stagnant economy coupled with inflation and unemployment that orthodox economics (for the time) did not seem to have a solution to, growing disenchantment with politics and a desire for change at the top resulted in the grand old man of Tumbran politics finally losing his majority in 1979. He departed, but reluctantly; the Moderates, who would end up being Labour's junior coalition partners, demanded a change at the top for any chance of cooperation. Holly Philips, a fast-rising star in the last days of the Haywood administration, would take the reins as Tumbra's first (and so far, only) woman Prime Minister.

But Philips' reign as Prime Minister would not go down well with most; Cabinet memos from the time, memoirs from long-departed civil servants and former ministers and the like have described the working relationship between Moderate leader Johan Dawson and the Prime Minister as atrocious at best and antagonistic at worst; her treatment in the press (especially the right-wing tabloids, mostly marshalled by a then-middle aged Georgian media proprietor named Alexander Harrison) was probably closer to unbridled savagery than an unbiased view on the workings of government; and then the winter of 1979/1980, in which Tumbra experienced the worst conditions in a hundred years, added further misery to her government. When the Moderates threatened to walk out of government after she attempted to raise government spending to provide aid for those stuck in the storm, Philips attempted to call their bluff; but the Moderates ended up actually doing so, sparking a remarkable situation where the five Moderate ministers attending cabinet dramatically exited the cabinet building halfway through a Cabinet meeting.

Andrew Rainier, who had established himself as an easygoing, suave campaigner, had taken a lead in the polls early into Philips' tenure as PM and never let it go; his promise of radical economic change through shedding much of the dead-weight of government and a new strategy of targeting the twin evils of stagnation and inflation (which, as it turned out, involved tweaking interest rates to seventeen and a half percent in 1981, a number which has never again been reached in the fifty years since) was music to most Tumbrans' ears.

The result marked a radical shift in Tumbra's voting patterns; Rainier's voting coalition was comprised of the traditional Liberal support base of the upper and upper-middle classes, federalists and business owners, but also included members of the working classes for the first time, which became part of the self-professed class of "Rainier Labourites", which contributed to unprecedented victories in the inner cities, where the Liberal brand had been traditionally regarded as toxic. The following twelve years of Rainier's right-wing revolution would see an almost unprecedented decade of liberalisation of the economy; something that has been, depending on political persuasions, decried since as selling off the house china and the shelf that it came in, or as the saviour of the Tumbran economy. Fifty years on, the impact of Rainier's realigning victory is still being felt; be it in the moderation of Labour and reining in of its more left-wing factions in a bid to remain electable, the rising house prices in Straton and almost everywhere, or the declining power of labour unions.

In that sense, then, 1980 marked the end of an era, defined almost solely by Malcolm Haywood and marked by a commitment to social spending, welfare and regulation; and the start of a new one, defined by Rainier's embrace of markets, monetary policy and liberalisation. It is therefore almost fitting that the two biggest electoral defeats in Tumbra were inflicted by these two titans of the political arena; and it is something that may never be seen again.

Some felt Græntfjall had missed an opportunity by not following their Pavolan neighbors, Tikariot, in fielding an all-women team for the Copa Rushmori, a feeling amplified when they drew Cassadaigua in the final, so amends of a sort were made in the baking heat of the National High Performance Sports Center in Græntfjaller Multinesia as the Snow Wolves showed an all-woman lineup for the opening game of their Eagl’e’s’ Cup campaign. This was both a callback to the team’s most successful ever campaign, in the 10th edition, where 23 women made the final against Tequilo, and a nod to their opponents, Olympic (women’s) champions New Gelderland. The unusual lineup lasted just 41 minutes, unfortunately, until Sveinbjörg Áslaugsdóttir was forced off after looking unsteady on her feet following a clash of heads. The substitution suggested KG, or at least Thor and his team, are taking head injuries more seriously following the damning report during the offseason by the Ministry of Health & Racial Hygiene into lax enforcement of concussion protocols in the GPL. Captain Johanna Álvgeirsdóttir, who famously was unable to take part in the nailbiting penalty shootout in the World Cup quarterfinal against Valanora owing to injury, made up for that absence, somewhat, by converting from the spot for the winner in a game that didn’t quite live up to its billing, both teams seeming to struggle with the sapping humidity.

The following game against Eura was more scheduled as a late evening kickoff and the cooler temperatures made for a far more entertaining game, particularly in the second half, as the night chill had set in. After Eura took an early lead through a header from a free-kick – a worrying continuation of a pattern of poor defending of set-pieces – Lara Auðunsdóttir pegged things level just before the half in slightly controversial style, bundling in a goal as she clashed with the Euran keeper. For a player who thought her international career might be over, the goal was welcome relief regardless of coming with few style points attached. A wonderful solo run from Sara Kristoffersdóttir and a powerful finish lit the fuse in the second half, after which Johanna stabbed home a messily defended free-kick before Röskvi Tyrfingsson, another striker searching for goals to rejuvenate his international career, was gifted the easiest finish of his life at the back post. A late Euran consolation effort kept the margin to two and caused brief excitement for the final few minutes. The Snow Wolves may not have learned a great deal from their first two matches – though the little heralded Svandís Marcosdóttir took her opportunity well with an impressive showing – but they came away with six points, more than they managed across six games in the last Eagl’e’s’ Cup, which will be satisfying enough for now.

Nephara will be the opponent on the third matchday of Eagles Cup XIV as the Cormorants and Bees meet for the fifth time in history. The BBP Stadium will be the venue for the showdown against the Rushmori nation that has won on both their previous visits to Belle Haven—3-2 at Sportsmen's Park in World Cup 82 Qualifying and 2-0 on Match Day 2 of World Cup 84 Group E play at this venue.

The last contest between them was the biggest match in BPNT history when it occurred, in the Semi-Final of World Cup 85 at Haven Stadium in Maal, Mriin. In a contemporary evaluation, it remains a question of whether it can be considered a stepping stone, or a ceiling.

Having secured back to back knockout stage victories over a pair of regional nemeses, the Commonwealth were looking to complete their six cycle rise from zeroes to World Cup Finalists with the core of the squad the product of the Football Association of the Commonwealth's Youth Development Charter, most of which were in their primes; Ichi Tuzzio, the first foreign born manager of the BPNT had molded a side that had lost only twice in 39 previous matches and had the experience of being the reigning World Cup Championship boss.

The 4-3 defeat that sent Nephara to the Final, where they fell to Free Republics, wasn't seen as an existential moment at the time, but as it fades farther into the background the relative importance comes into better focus; it remains Baker Park's most successful cycle in the NSWC era, which even a pair of subsequent Atlantian Oceania titles along with the prestige of winning the Cup of Champions in the previous Eagles Cup fall just short of surpassing.

It was expected to be the first of many opportunities to join the ranks of nations that could be considered 'contenders' for subsequent World Cup cycles, but BP have only won a single knockout stage match in the WCF not played in Baker Park since that evening in Mriin.

In a wider view it has the potential to become a haunting loss, where you can almost see the high water mark at the moment when the wave broke and rolled back*

The local chapter of the Rational Numbers Admiration and Nonsense society (QANon) wishes to express their admiration at the diversity of stylistic tactics on display, many of which require two or three significant digits.


Has your team always played with this style, or have different coaches brought different tactical shifts? What reputation do they have for being offensive or defensive, if any? Have there been any performances that exemplify these tactics, or exceptions that prove the rule?
