HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - ELEVENTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART I)


This time, we'll welcome the eleventh season of the Valladar Super League, with 20 teams trying to seize the crown won by AS Bezieres the last season. We saw interesting teams the last season, like Olympique de Fontvielle and Nord Energie FC, and teams that need to forget what happened as soon as possible, like the Canalave Dragons and Tannenberg FC.

In this season, unfortunately, we won't have any "newbie" team in the highest tier of valladar football, as the three promoted teams (Gatineau, Cardenales and Tallin) already "know the drill", and the other 17 teams already know about them. But, let's start our preview with the UICA competitions, where our clubs are gradually becoming protagonists.

INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE:

Once again, we start our season with the UICA competitions, and a pleasant surpise: the Metropolis Alligators as quarterfinalists of the Globe Cup. This time, few clubs failed to meet the expectations, and Olympique de Fontvielle was welcomed to the international stage with a dramatic penalty shootout.

TakilQuip Champions' Cup:

AS Bezieres: The valladar champions were pleased with the news coming from Aeropag that they would start playing the TQCC from the third preliminary round, but their road would not be a bed of roses. St. Brendan’s Cove, from the Ansernia Islands, was the first rival for Les Rouges, who had to do a double effort in the second leg in order to qualify to the following round, as both teams cancelled themselves at the Jules Picot. A 3-2 victory in the Ansernia Islands would give Bezieres the qualification to the playoff round, where they faced The Grey Towers from Nethertopia. If St. Brendan's Cove was a tough rival, the Nethertopians were even tougher. A victory 5-3 at home would be not enough, since The Grey Towers won 3-1 in Nethertopia, levelling the aggregate score and qualifying to the group stage thanks to the three goals they scored in Bezieres. A group stage in the Globe Cup was the consolation prize for Les Rouges this time...

Eterna Stars: In their return to the TQCC after eight seasons, the Stars had to start from the second qualifying round for non-champions, a path -maybe- tougher than the champions one. Mackintosh Thistle Celtic, from The Weegies, seemed to be a tough rival for Eterna, but two victories sent the Stars to the following round. Polar Zenith from Zarbli, was awaiting in the third preliminary round, and managed to scare the Stars with a 1-1 draw in Eterna City, but the valladars showed their best weapons in the second leg, and thrashed Zenith 4-1 in Zarbli. However, the Stars' dream would end after both matches against Radyukevich CSC, who only needed two victories against the Stars to make them repeat the path followed in TQCC 17, thus sending them to the Globe Cup.

Globe Cup:

Olympique de Fontvielle: Olympique de Fontvielle was our newest addition to the coëfficients list, and thanks to their fifth place the last season, Les Jaune et Bleu were granted the right to compete in the Globe Cup for their first time ever. Ashdom City from Nethertopia was a real "Baptism of Fire" for the OF, but the second team from Fontvielle stood up, and despite a 2-1 loss in the first match, managed to force a penalty shootout with a 2-1 victory at a packed Stade de l'Amitié. But luck was not on the Olympique's side, and the team was eliminated. This will surely be a lesson for this young team, and a motivation to keep trying.

Metropolis Alligators: First: Eterna Stars, then Bezieres, then the Impact, now...the Alligators. The last Globe Cup was the moment for the Alligators to shine, although they started from the Selective Stage. In order to reach the group stage, the Alligators had to overpower VLC FC, Port Jarko Rebels, AC Palliston and Woodstock Wild in the preliminatory stages. But the surprises were about to come: the Alligators did not lose to the powerful Hatton Town (even they defeated them in Ad'ihan) in the group stage, and finished in first place in Group C, qualifying for the knockout stages. Later, Estudiantes de Íguen would fall to them (being the first time a valladar team defeats a team from Aguazul on aggregate score), and Heidelstadt Falken was next. But the Alligators' glorious path ended when they faced Cafundó do Juta in the quarterfinals. The Cafundelenses sent the Alligators back to the ground and defeated them, thus ending the MA's great performance.

Nacional: We can say Nacional was this season's disappointment. The current Super League's bronze medal holders started in the qualifying stage of the Globe Cup, the last step before the group stage. However, the draw wasn't kind to them: Nacional vs. Atlantas Klaipaada. The first match in Klaipaada ended nil-nil, but Atlantas just needed to score a goal at the Metropolis Dome to kick the valladars out. The bread was burnt before it went to the oven. Poor them...

AS Bezieres: After losing to The Grey Towers in the TQCC, Les Rouges entered the group stage of the Globe Cup, but the valladar champions were not lucky in the draw: Group J, Clube Comercial, Atlantas Klaipaada (who had eliminated Nacional just a round ago) and San Diego Iguanas. Bezieres lost all their matches against the Cafundelense and Somewhereistonian teams, and defeated the Iguanas twice. Six points were not enough to get Les Rouges out of the last place in their group and were eliminated.

Eterna Stars: The group draw of the Globe Cup placed the Stars in Group D, with County Stanley, Alianza Jucaro and Belgium FC as their rivals. The Sargossans were the only team Eterna could defeat, as they drew Belgium at home and County Stanley away, and lost their other three matches. Last place and eliminated, but at least they made more than a point this time.

Chronowire Series B Champions' Cup:

Gatineau UC 98: This is the second time the B-League champion manages to make it to the group stage, and thanks to Gatineau. In the playoff stage, Irka FK saw the valladars celebrating as they defeated the Somewhereistonians 2-1 on aggregate score. Les Chevaliers d'Or were placed in Group H, along with Caledon Simpson, Greenville Glory and Allied Motor Trade. Gatineau could have become the first valladar club in making it to the round of 16 of the SBCC, but a 4-0 loss to Greenville Glory sent them back home.

AC Tallin: The "weakest" team from Carloburgo will play the next Super League season as the B-League runner-ups, but they had to compete in the SBCC first. Sparta Navel was the first rival for the Southern Gunners, and Tallin defeated them twice (2-1 and 0-1). However, Tallin's adventure in the SBCC ended when they faced Racing Club Delgadopolis in the playoff round. The Sargossans proved to be far better than the valladars and eliminated them. At least they were eliminated by the eventual champion...

Cardenales FC: Cardenales, who ended in third place in the last B-League edition, entered the SBCC from the first preliminary round, where they knocked Seibu FC from Daehanjeiguk. But SC Ocotal, from Sargossa, eliminated the second Valencian team after two fierce matches. Ocotal advanced to the playoff round on away goals, since they scored two goals in Valencia against the lone goal Cardenales scored in Sargossa.

Pumas Maldonado: We can say Pumas' performance this time was less embarrassing than the last season. Yeah, they ended in fourth place, again; they started from the first preliminary round, again; but they did not lose against their first rival. The team from Maldonado went all the way from the first preliminary round knocking out teams like Shakhter Byrsk and Banna Rovers. However, they would run out of luck in the playoff stage after they were thrashed by Gamboa FC.

And now, we will present the 20 teams competing in this edition of the Super League:

(Key: Best three players in bold, foreigners in italics)

AC TALLIN: Phillips - Carrero, Andersen, McGaven, Russell (C) - Girard, Rosero, Sierra, Pereira - Aldemar, Galtier
Full Name: Association Club Tallin Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Southern Gunners", "The White-Reds"
Stadium: Parken Road, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 13,500)
Sponsor (s): Carvajal Motors
Home Kit: White shirt with details in red and red shorts
Away Kit: Black shirt with details in white and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All white
Chairman: George Bradley
Director of Football: Samuel Carrera
Coach: Gonzalo García
Last Season and Objectives: The B-League runners-up have been renowned as one of the worst teams in the history of the Super League. Tannenberg's success and Ajax's recent performances have relegated the White-Reds to the third place in their own city. Their main goal this season will be avoid relegation, but any higher achievement will be welcomed.
Rivalries: Tannenberg FC, Ajax Carloburgo, Pradera FC
Fans: Since TFC's fans are almost the 90% of Carloburgo population, AC Tallin fans are few but cheerful. Despite this team's constant failures, they still have the hope of seeing their tiny team making something big.
Prediction: 20th. Tallin were, are and will be one of the worst teams in Valladares, no matter how many good and awesome things you can say about them. The pundits condemn this team to relegation just because the Valladar Super League is not their place.

AD CERRO: Tavarello - Garcés, Brown, Tamayo, Cortés - Alvarado (C), Villarraga, Robson, Vargas - Riascos, Galletti
Full Name: Asociación Deportiva Cerro
Nickname (s): "Los Celestes" (The Sky Blue Men), "El Tigre" (The Tiger)
Stadium: Estadio Miller Hoverberg, Cerro, District of Metropolis (Cap. 10,000)
Sponsor (s): Carvajal Motors
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt and black shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in blue
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Gerard Villeneuve
Director of Football: Alberto Salas
Coach: Gilbert Favrè
Last Season and Objectives: Eleven goals prevented Cerro from appearing in a second Aeropag Football Invitational in a row. However, that seventh place is not enough to discourage the Board, who are still convinced Cerro could qualify for a Globe Cup. They were already sixth placed, so they can spoil the party for more than one team. This season will be the perfect one to see what Cerro can do against the "Big" teams.
Rivalries: Nacional, SC Caimanes, Metropolis Alligators, Marinos Metropolis.
Fans: Cerro's fanbase is passionate, despite being small. Their fanbase is too small compared to the ones of teams like Marinos and Metropolis Alligators, however, Cerro's fans are as noisy as them. Their mentality towards the team is not constant, and tends to change at any time: if Cerro wins, they want to worship even the cleaners of the team's headquarters, but if the team loses, they want to destroy everything.
Prediction: 9th. None of the pundits invite anyone to be excited about this team. At best, they will be able to defeat the Alligators at the Dome, but they won't do more than that.

AJAX CARLOBURGO: Johnson - Russell, Monterrubio, Pereira, Castro - Rivas (C), Ortega, Ferreira - Rogers, Johansson-Bakvis, Palacios
Full Name: Football Club Ajax Carloburgo
Nickname (s): "The Red-Whites", "The Inmigrants"
Stadium: Parken Road, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 13,500)*
Sponsor (s): QuantaLith, Banco Latino
Home Kit: White shirt with a broad, vertical red stripe and white shorts
Away Kit: All navy blue with details in yellow
Third/GK Kit: All yellow with details in black
Chairman: Joseph Tacher
Director of Football: Gustavo Suárez
Coach: Anthony Clark
Last Season and Objectives: Despite being thrashed several and several times the last season, the Inmigrants somehow managed to keep their Super League status and, thanks to that goal in Eterna City, Per Olivier Johansson-Bakvis is now an idol for the few Ajax fans. For this season, Ajax's main goal is a placement away from the relegation zone. The Board members don't want to suffer until the penultimate match nor want to have nightmares this time, that's for sure.
Rivalries: Tannenberg FC, AC Tallin
Fans: Despite being a small fanbase (thanks to the overwhelming support to Tannenberg FC), the few Ajax's fans are cheerful and enthusiastic. Most of them are wealthy people from Carloburgo and belong to the "High Society" of the city. Therefore, don't expect to see them destroying everything when the team is defeated or committing vandalism. Some of them are foreigners already established in the city, but they dislike vandalism as well. Ajax's fanbase can be considered as the "quietest fanbase in the Valladar Super League".
Prediction: 15th. Ajax's financial future is in limbo after the recent events related to nuclear bombings in Lithatrius, nation where their main sponsor (QuantaLith) is headquartered. The pundits hope their future as a Super League team is not in limbo as well. If they lose both games against Tallin, they can give up.

* Home matches against Tannenberg, Alligators, Eterna and Marinos will be hosted at the Olympic Stadium (Cap. 62,000)

AS BEZIERES: Moore - Lores, Alzach, Rubiano, Rousseau - Lamont (C), Vercoutre, Hardy - Revault, Collazos, Uribe
Full Name: Association Sportive de Bezieres
Nickname (s): "Les Rouges" (The Reds), "Les Démons" (The Devils), "Le ASB" (The ASB)
Stadium: Stade Jules Picot, Bezieres, Foix (Cap. 38,000)
Sponsor (s): InterRail, Hydro-Foix
Home Kit: Red shirt and white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: Green shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Rèmy de Saint-Lorent
Director of Football: Luis da Lima
Coach: Yves Rexach
Last Season and Objectives: The brand new Super League champions may be the only ones who can boast of having a "real" test before the start of the new season: the Big Shiny Trophy. Although they did not win it (what could be a second trophy in less than a year for the giant showcase in the owner's luxurious house), the experience earned may help them get their second title. It seems one of the richest club in Valladares is not happy with just a title.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg FC, SC Caimanes, Marinos Metropolis, Slateport Bulls, Metropolis Alligators.
Fans: AS Bezieres has a strong fanbase in the city of Bezieres and its outskirts. Most of their fans are loyal to the team and do not tend to go nuts after a defeat. They do not tend to feel themselves provoked, and most of them are peaceful fans just wanting to cheer their team.
Prediction: 1st. After reaching the quarterfinals in the Big Shiny Trophy, Bezieres' next aim is their second Super League title. And they've got the upper hand to win it after taking part in the aforementioned competition in the Babbage Islands.

AS VAUD: Francis - Jones, Richardson, Velmont, Silvera - Ruiz, Díaz, Sandro (C), Ortega, Carrasso, Payet
Full Name: Association Sportive de Vaud-Gatineau
Nickname (s): "Les Étudiants" (The Students)
Stadium: Stade Mouliere, Gatineau, Foix (Cap. 11,150)
Sponsor (s): ThermoClean
Home Kit: Blue shirt with black vertical stripes and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with blue vertical stripes and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Lucien Delmont
Director of Football: Fabrice Fevrier
Coach: Alberto Vega
Last Season and Objectives: Les Étudiants were close to return to the B-League the last season, as they were placed in a terrible seventeenth place. For this season, Vaud will be looking to do a more decent performance, as they are already considered a candidate for relegation. In this season, both derbies against Gatineau will be decisive for the team's stay in the next Super League edition.
Rivalries: Gatineau UC 98, Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Vaud's fans tend to get mad at the referees when they when it's a fault favoring the opposing team or when they start to feel that the referee begins to "favour" the other team. They tend to fill the small Stade Mouilere to its full, even if the team is last in the standings. It can be concluded that they are loyal and passionate fans who do not tolerate anything against their team.
Prediction: 18th. Les Étudiants are like crabs: every time they take a step forward, they take two steps back. This time, the pundits really wish to see this team in the B-League, since they are tired of predicting the future of this team and always fail. Hopefully Gatineau will make them not fail this time.

CANALAVE DRAGONS: Vega (C) - Perea, Sánchez, Aljure, Lacombe - Carreño, Silva, Jones, McAllister - Thomas, Leclerc
Full Name: Canalave Dragons Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Dragons"
Stadium: Dragon Stadium, Canalave, Eterna (Cap. 35,000)
Sponsor (s): Mercantil
Home Kit: Red shirt with white vertical stripes and red shorts
Away Kit: All blue
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Efraín Guzmán
Director of Football: George Smith
Coach: Manuel Ríos
Last Season and Objectives: The Dragons come from a fatal season, in which they could flirt with relegation at some point. In order to forgot that terrible season, Canalave are urged of good results, especially in their first matches. That was the key that allowed them to enter a Globe Cup, but the Board members are not infatuated (for the moment) with that UICA competition handled by those money-hungry Cafundelense people.
Rivalries: Eterna Stars, Slateport Bulls, Nord Energie FC
Fans: Canalave's fans are passionate and loyal. They consider themselves as the "12th player", due to their (sometimes extreme) fanatism. With their noise and their harangues against visiting teams, they are responsible for creating the worst possible environment for the visitors at the Dragon Stadium. Canalave's fans were considered the "most loyal fans" in two of the last editions of the Super League.
Prediction: 11th. If Canalave are not fighting against relegation, they will be anchored to the eleventh place for the rest of the season. Nothing more to expect from them.

CARDENALES FC: García - Quintero, Ramos, Sánchez (C), Parra - Rosales, Ortega, Montero, Quiceno - Rosero, Martinez
Full Name: Cardenales de Valencia Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Los Cardenales" (The Cardinals)
Stadium: Estadio Municipal de Valencia, Valencia, Antioquia (Cap. 17,700)
Sponsor (s): VN Bank
Home Kit: All red
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All blue
Chairman: José del Carmen Villota
Director of Football: Jean-Pierre Roudet
Coach: Fernando Gutiérrez
Last Season and Objectives: The third place achieved in the B-League the last season sent Cardenales back to the Super League, after a two-seasons abscense. Not much can be said about the Board's expectations: get a new partner/investor, help the team avoid relegation, the same chatter they always say...Let's see if they manage to extend their Super League membership for at least one season more.
Rivalries: Pradera FC
Fans: Cardenales fans are passionate and cheerful, however, they tend to abandon their team when Cardenales need their fans.
Prediction: 19th. The pundits think Cardenales should not be allowed to play in the Super League because of their economic problems, but they are going to be lenient this time and they won't give this team the last place.

CHIQUITO FC: Vanderley - Sinclair, Hortúa, Rosero, Cifuentes (C) - Castroneves, Gomes, Dickens - Barrera, Méndez, Torres
Full Name: Corporación Deportiva Chiquito Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Os Verdes" (The Green Men)
Stadium: Estádio Estadual Brito Manganelli, Chiquito, Chiquito (Cap. 51,200*)
Sponsor (s): MarketFrontier
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in yellow and green shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in green and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Blue shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Nazário Salgado
Director of Football: Alexis Conte
Coach: Leandro Castronovo
Last Season and Objectives: In the second season of the "Project Castronovo", Chiquito ended in the thirteenth place, nothing different to the usual for them. For the next season, no-one in the city expects the team to end inside the Top-10, but every team commanded by Leandro Castronovo is unpredictable, so we can expect anything from Os Verdes in this season.
Rivalries: SC Caimanes, AS Bezieres
Fans: Chiquito's fans are among the most passionate fans in the Super League. However, they tend to insult their own players if they feel the players are not showing any sacrifice in the game.
Prediction: 13th. Chiquito does not make any difference. They are not a bad team, but they are not very good either, so they will end in thirteenth place once again.

*Stadium capacity reduced to 40,000 due to remodeling works.

ETERNA STARS: Mezaguez - Lannoy, Calheira, Palacios, Millers - Rivas, Reyes (C), Andrade, Torres - Mosquera, Londoño
Full Name: Eterna Stars Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Stars", "The Yellows"
Stadium: Alain Tramontin Stadium, Eterna City, Eterna (Cap. 55,000)
Sponsor (s): Bavaria Brewery, BetPlus (not displayed in shirt)
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Maurice Dufrasne
Director of Football: Joseph Lennon
Coach: Peter Holmes
Last Season and Objectives: The last season's runners-up are excited because this second place was their highest placement since the third Super League season. But this achievement also reminds Eterna's fans the importance of winning another title, and not get pushed in the honors for their most hated rivals. The Board also knows the team is under pressure, and this time the Stars must be the sensation in the Super League.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators, Tannenberg FC, Slateport Bulls, Canalave Dragons, Fontvielle Impact
Fans: Eterna Stars have an important fanbase widespread in the whole nation, but most of them are concentrated in Eterna City and its outskirts. They tend to be passionate, loyal, and aggressive and intolerant with other fans, specially with Metropolis Alligators', Tannenberg's, Slateport's, and Fontvielle's fans.
Prediction: 5th. The Stars are "famous" because they tend to crumble to pieces at critical moments. That has happened almost every season, so it's part of their DNA. The pundits think a fifth place would be great for them.

FONTVIELLE IMPACT: Lacombe - Lavoisier, Salazar, Millar, Demont - Perrin, Rouillard, Romero (C), Bársenas - Gignac, de Roux
Full Name: Impact de Fontvielle Football Club
Nickname (s): "Les Bleus" (The Blues), "The Impact"
Stadium: Stade de l'Amitié, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 25,000)
Sponsor (s): Tamount Group, Ville de Fontvielle Council
Home Kit: All blue
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Antoine Tamount
Director of Football: Alain Tamount
Coach: Guy Royal
Last Season and Objectives: While Gilbert Le Tallec is successful and collects millions and millions from the imploded checkbooks of his Cotdelapomais bosses, Fontvielle Impact's players, fans and Board still regret the resounding failure in the last season. Failure to qualify at least the AFI was a hard slap to the winningest team in the country, which will now have a tough mission to repair itself and return to the limelight. Their arch-rivals now enjoy the sweetness of victory...will that be extra motivation for the Impact?
Rivalries: AS Bezieres, Olympique de Fontvielle, Eterna Stars, Metropolis Alligators
Fans: Most of Fontvielle's fans work in Tamount factories, or worked for Tamount at some moment. Currently, they are specially concentrated in Fontvielle and its outskirts, Gatineau, Bezieres, and the French-speaking neighborhoods of Metropolis. They show unconditional love to the team and tend to be noisy, cheerful and optimistic, even if the team is at the bottom of the table. Although they can be unruly and rebellious, but that happens when fans of other teams provoke them.
Prediction: 3rd. Fontvielle Impact may have won three titles, but the centre of valladar football is now Bezieres. Time to get more Le Tallecs...

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - ELEVENTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART II)


GATINEAU UC 98: Vidal - Valverde (C), Devaux, Blondel, Vargas - Berson, González, Tabanou, Richelieu - Machado, Casanova
Full Name: Gatineau Union Club 98
Nickname (s): "Les Chevaliers d'Or" (The Golden Knights), "L'GUC" (The GUC)
Stadium: Stade Omnisports Gatineau, Gatineau, Foix (Cap. 17,500)
Sponsor (s): BetPlus, Ville de Gatineau Council
Home Kit: Ocher shirt with details in navy blue and ocher shorts
Away Kit: Navy blue shirt with details in ocher and navy blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All white
Chairman: Henri Louvion
Director of Football: Gilbert Mezaguez
Coach: Gregory Didot
Last Season and Objectives: Gatineau are back in the Super League, this time as B-League champions. This time, their expectations are higher, and they want to stay in the highest tier of valladar football for at least another season. Interestingly, the team with which they will have to fight that spot is their arch-rival Vaud. Surely, this will add more morbid to their rivalry.
Rivalries: AS Vaud, Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Gatineau have their own fanbase, they are few fans, but they will support their team no matter the circumstances...that's for sure. We're sure the Gatineau authorities will be in red alert when Gatineau and Vaud play against each other.
Prediction: 17th. The pundits think Gatineau can do a better performance than Vaud, and are betting for this team this time. Les Chevaliers have a great chance to show their rivals who rules the city, and the pundits prefer Gatineau.

MARINOS METROPOLIS: Sánchez - Umaña, Gutiérrez, Correa, Perea - Ricardinho, Acuña, Rojas, Oliveira (C) - Patiño, Aguilar
Full Name: Club Deportivo Marinos de Metropolis
Nickname (s): "Los Marineros" (The Mariners), "El Cuarto Grande" (The Fourth Big Team), "Los Azul Celeste" (The Sky Blue Guys)
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): Valladar Broadcasting Corporation, AL Electronics
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt and black shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Luis Montes
Director of Football: Rodolfo Pérez
Coach: Thomas Russell
Last Season and Objectives: A 1-2 loss to Caimanes at home, and in the last matchday, was enough to make Marinos go from the Globe Cup to the AFI. The Board want this time a Globe Cup berth. No more AFIs, the fans and the Board are already tired of them...
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators, Slateport Bulls, AD Cerro, Nacional
Fans: Marinos is the fourth most popular football team in Valladares, with a large fanbase. About 11% of Valladar population support the club, and their average gates for their home matches are the fourth highest in the Super League. Their fanbase is located mainly in Metropolis. Marinos' fans are considered one of the most passionate and loyal to their team in the Super League. They constantly tend to fight with Metropolis Alligators' and Slateport Bulls' fans, since their hostility towards them is big as well as Marinos' rivalry with both teams.
Prediction: 7th. Marinos is a loose cannon. No one knows where it will fall, so the pundits bet they will not qualify for anything. Nor the AFI at least.

METROPOLIS ALLIGATORS: Tom - García, Pereira, Dufraz, Silva - Ospina, Botero, Gutiérrez, Macías (C) - Londoño, Koit
Full Name: Metropolis Alligators Football Club
Nickname (s): "Los Caimanes" (The Alligators), "Los Verdiazules" (The Green-Blues), "El Titán" (The Titan), "The MA"
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): UNE, UltraTeam, Hydro, V-Train, District Mayorality of Metropolis
Home Kit: Green shirt with blue vertical stripes and green shorts
Away Kit: White shirt and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Olivier Bonilla
Director of Football: Elías Parra-León
Coach: Charles McMurdon
Last Season and Objectives: In the dictionary of the fans of the most followed team in the nation, the phrase "fourth place" means "failure". Fortunately, they started the season with a great performance in the Globe Cup. The Alligators won't have a place for anything different than the title, after seven, almost eight seasons without managing to win it. Everyone in the MA is hoping this is their season.
Rivalries: Marinos Metropolis, Tannenberg FC, Eterna Stars, Fontvielle Impact, SC Caimanes, AD Cerro, Nacional
Fans: With a 14.3% of popularity, Metropolis Alligators is one of the most popular clubs in Valladares. Their fanbase is by far, the largest in the nation. The Alligators have fans in every city, town or village in Valladares. These fans are characterized for being noisy, loyal to the team, also, they protest when they see the team play poorly and they are not tolerant of opposing teams fans.
Prediction: 2nd. We could expect from the Alligators a bad Apertura but a great Clausura, and the pundits say the Alligators will have to add another second place to their showcase, judging Bezieres' and MA's current squads and moment.

NACIONAL: Barrera - López, Russell, Martínez, Rueda - Vélez, Ruiz (C), Smith, Lecompte - Renato, Márquez
Full Name: Club Nacional de Fútbol
Nickname (s): "La Academia" (The Academy), "Los Albos" (The Whites)
Stadium: Estadio Miller Hoverberg, Cerro, District of Metropolis (Cap. 10,000)
Sponsor (s): BetPlus
Home Kit: All white
Away Kit: Red shirt and blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerardo Matallana
Director of Football: Peter Capwell
Coach: Harrison Villar
Last Season and Objectives: Nacional ended the last season in third place, but they were a disappointment in the last Globe Cup. La Academia have already won the Super League, and the Board think they could repeat such a feat. Will they be able to win their second title?
Rivalries: AD Cerro, Metropolis Alligators, Marinos Metropolis
Fans: Nacional have a small fanbase, however, they are loyal to the team. In every Nacional's match at the Miller Hoverberg, there are 10,000 noisy fans cheering their team, no matter the rival.
Prediction: 4th. The pundits think Nacional will assure a berth in the Globe Cup if they play like they played the last season, but they won't get a third place again.

NORD ENERGIE FC: Reeves - García, Smith, Cabrera, Edwards - Nicholls (C), Evans, Romero, Taylor - Gomes, Andrews
Full Name: Nord Energie Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Blood and Gold", "The Electric Boys"
Stadium: Municipal Stadium, Toril, Eterna (Cap. 5,000)
Sponsor (s): Energy Inc., Bavaria Brewery
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with red vertical strips and yellow shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerard Montana
Director of Football: Jacques Riegel
Coach: Gilles Cheyrou
Last Season and Objectives: A twelfth place the last season was a great result for Nord Energie, who were closer and closer to return to the B-League. For the next season, we are sure they will want to spoil the Big teams' party again, let's see if this time their efforts are rewarded...
Rivalries: Canalave Dragons, Eterna Stars
Fans: Nord Energie's fanbase is mostly formed with the former workers of Carrillo Canyon I, most of them live in the outskirts of Toril, a town located north of Eterna City. This small fanbase is not as noisy as other small teams' fanbases, and they tend to sit down and just watch the game. Their loyalty is questionable since Nord Energie do not tend to play with full stadium, except when Eterna, Tannenberg, Slateport and the MA come to Toril.
Prediction: 14th. Nord Energie had a chance to dream the last season, and they let it go. This time, the pundits don't think Nord Energie can do many things, so this team will have to be happy with a fourteenth place.

OLYMPIQUE DE FONTVIELLE: Gavanon (C) - Carrasso, Govou, Velmont, Lacroix - Lopera, Montes, Puel, Santos - Filo, Simão
Full Name: Club Sportif Olympique de Fontvielle
Nickname (s): "Les Jaune et Bleu" (The Yellow and Blue), "Le OF" (The OF), "L'Express Jaune" (The Yellow Express)
Stadium: Stade de l'Amitié, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 25,000)
Sponsor (s): Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Valladares
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with details in blue and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red with details in white
Chairman: François Lemerre
Director of Football: Olivier Puel
Coach: Jean Camacho
Last Season and Objectives: Olympique was the pleasant surprise in the last season with their fifth place and their decent participation in the Globe Cup. This time, the team's Board thinks to return once again to the Globe Cup and brought the Mytannian striker Miroslav Filo, but the carnage seems to be hard this season. Will the OF survive it and return to the Globe Cup? or will they be left with nothing?
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact, AS Vaud, AS Bezieres, Gatineau UC 98
Fans: As the second team in the city, Olympique de Fontvielle have few fans. Few, but they have them. OF's fans are noisy, and like to cheer their team, however, they are not loyal to the team, since there are less than 2,500 present fans in every Olympique's match at the Stade de l'Amitié.
Prediction: 10th. Olympique's fantasy dream will not last long, according to the pundits. But it won't be a nightmare either, as they expect the team to finish in a decent tenth place.

PRADERA FC: Rodríguez - Saraz, Grajales, Barco, Gaviria - Garcés (C), Castro, Borrero, Phillips, Ruiz - Tello
Full Name: Pradera Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Los Verdiblancos" (The Green-Whites)
Stadium: Estadio Gobernador Villa, Ciudad Pradera, Antioquia (Cap. 23,500)
Sponsor (s): Provenza Beef, Banco Latino
Home Kit: Green shirt and white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Guillermo Buitrago
Director of Football: Julio Aristizabal
Coach: Frèderic Galletti
Last Season and Objectives: Pradera ended in a "decent" fourteenth place the last season, but their fans were left with the feeling the team could do more than that. For this season, the goals will be the same, and Pradera's main goal will be avoid relegation. Can they do more than that?
Rivalries: Cardenales FC, AC Tallin
Fans: Pradera's fanbase is located mainly in Ciudad Pradera. Their fans are noisy, and tend to insult directly their own players when they feel their players are not doing any sacrifice in the game. Every person accepting to be the Pradera's coach must be prepared to endure the pressure from the Estadio Gobernador Villa's "shareholder's stand".
Prediction: 16th. The pundits say Pradera will suffer more than expected but they will renew their Super League membership for VSL 12.

SC CAIMANES: Ortega, Maicon, Jimenez, Kléver, Beltrán - Lucio, Tiago Neves, Rosero, Anthony - Araújo, Souza (C)
Full Name: Sport Club Caimanes
Nickname (s): "Os Jacarés" (The Alligators)
Stadium: Estádio Armando Bozzelli, Campo Grande, Chqiuito (Cap. 50,000)
Sponsor (s): MediCare
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in black and black shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Josué Pereira
Director of Football: Jose Luis Barreiro
Coach: Ricardo Gomes
Last Season and Objectives: Caimanes could barely end inside the Top-10 the last season, but they say that's now ancient history. The Board wants now to get the team back to the UICA tournaments, but there's a big question about the team and their condition to get into the carnage expected every year for the UICA tournament berths. Will they be able to overcome that carnage?
Rivalries: Chiquito FC, Metropolis Alligators, Tannenberg FC, AS Bezieres, Marinos Metropolis, Slateport Bulls
Fans: SC Caimanes have a strong fanbase, concentrated in Campo Grande, Chiquito, and some neighbourhoods in Metropolis. These fans are passionate, and very hostile towards referees and rival teams' fans. They do not hesitate to make angry claims when the referee makes decisions that may potentially affect their team. Caimanes' fans also like to form brawls with other teams' fans in national roads, when they travel to see Caimanes' game in another city.
Prediction: 12th. Well, well, well...Caimanes are not as good as they were. That means, another twelfth place is waiting for them. Ho-hum...

SLATEPORT BULLS: García - Tamayo, Jones, Lennon, Suárez - Arribagé, López, Quintero, Velasco - Revault, Flórez (C)
Full Name: Slateport Bulls Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Bulls"
Stadium: Estadio de la Riviera, Slateport, Eterna (Cap. 40,000)
Sponsor (s): BullRade, MediCare, Hydro
Home Kit: Blue shirt with details in red and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Alexander Edwards
Director of Football: Charles Williams
Coach: Leonard Gillet
Last Season and Objectives: Another depressing ninth place for the Bulls, and the fans' patience is filling. The Board is also worried by the team's recent failures, and think they must work harder in order to bring the team back to the Top-5. If the team is committed, Slateport will be able to return to places of privilege this season.
Rivalries: Eterna Stars, Marinos Metropolis, SC Caimanes, Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg FC
Fans: Their fanbase is passionate and cheerful, based mainly in Slateport and its outskirts. They are always present at the Estadio de la Riviera, cheering their team with chants and harangues. Sometimes, they tend to provoke other teams' fans, specially Marinos' fans, with the idea of showing their hatred towards them. The rivalry between both fanbases is big, since both teams are trying to be considered as the "fourth Big team" in the nation.
Prediction: 6th. The pundits recognize the Board's hard work, but they think Slateport could earn great economic profits if they manage to get the AFI spot at the end of the season.

TANNENBERG FC: Triviño - Carvalho, Carlinhos, Martínez, Alex - Rosero, Phillips, Coleman, Peterson - Ruíz (C), Pérez
Full Name: Tannenberg Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Citizens", "The Black-Whites", "The Knights", "The TFC"
Stadium: White Meadow Arena, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 69,070)
Sponsor (s): Oak Air
Home Kit: Black shirt with white vertical strips and black shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in black and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: Black shirt with details in white and white shorts
Chairman: Gustavo Delima
Director of Football: Ulises Maldonado
Coach: Peter Selás
Last Season and Objectives: Tannenberg's eleventh place filled the fans' and the previous owner's patience. In light of the economic problems the team was facing, Benjamin Burton decided to sell the team to foreign investors. Cotdelapomais presence in Carloburgo was sealed with Oak Air's takeover of the Citizens. The new Board expects to improve the young squads and get the team back to UICA tournaments. The question is: how many time will they need to turn Tannenberg in what they were before?
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators, Eterna Stars, Slateport Bulls, AS Bezieres
Fans: Tannenberg are one of the most popular teams in the nation, as 14.3% of the country's population support the club. Their fans are passionate, but they do not tend to feel themselves provoked by other teams' fans, like Bezieres' fans. Their love towards the team is demonstrated every week, as the Olympic Stadium is frecuently filled with 62,000 noisy local fans, cheering their team.
Prediction: 8th. Well, from eleventh to eighth place is not really a great jump for the TFC, specially if they are a "Big team" in Valladares, but their fans will know how to thank the pundits later.

Two teams could claim sweet revenge after their matches in this round. The Alligators took advantage of their match against Nacional to spoil their party, as La Academia always do the same to the Alligators in the Super League. And the Stars eliminated the Super League champions, who always make the Stars' life miserable.

In the quarterfinals, we had some high-voltage clashes: Tannenberg FC-Slateport Bulls, Marinos Metropolis-Fontvielle Impact, and Eterna Stars-Metropolis Alligators. The Citizens, the Impact and the Stars (who humiliated one of their most hated rivals) could claim victory in this round. Valencia and Lierravus, the last B-League representatives in the cup, had to face each other. Lierravus eliminated the "Violeta" and made it to the semi-finals.

The Bulls had two difficult matches against the always dangerous Fontvielle Impact, but managed to spoil their party at their home in order to qualify to the final. The Stars had an easier task, as Lierravus were not rivals for them.

Final
Slateport Bulls 0-1 Eterna Stars
Eterna Stars 2-2 Slateport Bulls (3-2 agg)


Congratulations to Eterna Stars, the first winners ever of the King's Shield!

With this title, Eterna Stars have earned the right to represent Valladares in the upcoming Cygnus Cup.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - ELEVENTH SEASON (PART I OF IV)


Apertura Tournament

MD1:

After the magic of the King's Shield, won by the Eterna Stars, we can finally enjoy the start of the Super League, with some interesting matches, some of which were more than expected, some surprises, and others were definitely in debt. The "Champions Match", played as the opener of the season, ended this time with victory for the Super League's reigning champions, Bezieres, who got rid of Gatineau easily. Nacional, as predicted, defeated Nord Energie with ease, Marinos and Slateport won their first matches away from home, while Eterna had to suffer more than expected to defeat Cardenales at home. Tallin managed to hold the Impact to a valuable (for them) draw, and the most expected match in this matchday, the "National Derby" between Metropolis Alligators and Tannenberg was a match to forget.

AS Bezieres 3-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Hardy 15', Lamont 53', Revault 77')
Nord Energie FC 1-4 Nacional (Romero 68'; Renato 11', 33', Márquez 18', 79')
Pradera FC 0-0 SC Caimanes
Eterna Stars 1-0 Cardenales FC (Mosquera 7')
AD Cerro 1-0 Canalave Dragons (Galletti 59')
AS Vaud 0-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Filo 22')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-2 Marinos Metropolis (Aguilar 23', Oliveira 68')
Metropolis Alligators 0-0 Tannenberg FC
Chiquito FC 1-3 Slateport Bulls (Barrera 19'; Flórez 39', 48', 90'+2')
Fontvielle Impact 1-1 AC Tallin (Gignac 68'; Aldemar 29')


MD2:

Bezieres' visit to Metropolis was easier than what they thought. Nacional didn't play like they played in Toril and were outmatched at their own home. Aside of Bezieres, Olympique de Fontvielle (who defeated Eterna Stars) and Marinos (who beat Cerro) are the only teams with perfect performance after two matches. Once again, Tallin made a "Big" team suffer: this time, the Alligators had to fight more than expected for a victory at Parken Road, and Tannenberg dispatched Vaud with relative ease. Gatineau defeated Caimanes in Campo Grande, Fontvielle Impact recovered from the shocking draw in their first match and defeated Chiquito and Ajax were able to hold the Bulls to a scoreless draw.

Nacional 0-5 AS Bezieres (Vercoutre 10', Uribe 26', Revault 66', 85', Collazos 70')
SC Caimanes 1-3 Gatineau UC 98 (Souza 33; Machado 12', Casanova 79', 82')
Cardenales FC 0-1 Nord Energie FC (Andrews 47')
Canalave Dragons 2-1 Pradera FC (Leclerc 29', McAllister 79'; Tello 72')
Olympique de Fontvielle 3-1 Eterna Stars (Simão 30', Santos 59', Filo 88'; Londoño 67')
Marinos Metropolis 1-0 AD Cerro (Patiño 78')
Tannenberg FC 2-0 AS Vaud (Ruiz 18', Pérez 68')
Slateport Bulls 0-0 Ajax Carloburgo
AC Tallin 0-1 Metropolis Alligators (Koit 34')
Fontvielle Impact 2-1 Chiquito FC (de Roux 40', Romero 58'; Méndez 81')


MD3:

Bezieres' victory over a lackluster Caimanes and Olympique's victory in Toril place both teams as leaders with 9 points after 3 matchdays. In our second "National Derby" of the season, Tannenberg manage to end a long winless streak in Eterna, defeating the Stars, who seem to be still infatuated with the title in the King's Shield. But the most thrilling match in this matchday was held not far from the capital, in Gatineau. After trailing by three goals at the halftime, the Dragons managed to equalize the match within 20 minutes in the second half. However, Paulo Machado doomed the Dragons with his goal in the last minute of the match, helping Gatineau get their second victory and the second in a row. Cardenales play nice but are unable to win, Ajax can't score at least a goal and Chiquito lost again. It's all for this week...

AS Bezieres 1-0 SC Caimanes (Lamont 41')
Nacional 1-0 Cardenales FC (Lecompte 78')
Gatineau UC 98 4-3 Canalave Dragons (Richelieu 5', 12', 38', Machado 89'; Silva 49', Thomas 53', Jones 62')
Nord Energie FC 0-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Puel 29', Santos 77')
Pradera FC 1-1 Marinos Metropolis (Ruiz 81'; Ricardinho 24')
Eterna Stars 0-2 Tannenberg FC (Peterson 18', Coleman 80')
AD Cerro 1-0 Slateport Bulls (Riascos 44')
AS Vaud 1-0 AC Tallin (Payet 72')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-1 Fontvielle Impact (Bársenas 39')
Metropolis Alligators 3-1 Chiquito FC (Macías 13, Koit 62', Botero 84'; Dickens 25')


MD4:

Bezieres' exhibition in Valencia helps Les Rouges assure the first place in the standings for at least one more week. Both Metropolitan teams are still in hot pursuit of the leaders, with 10 points after their convincing wins over Gatineau and Ajax. And we had a double Fontvielle-Cerro clash: On the one hand, Olympique and Nacional. And on the other hand, Impact and Cerro. Nacional got revenge of Olympique after the 4-0 defeat the last season, and defeated the ex-leaders at their stadium. As for the other match, the Impact shattered Cerro, with a hat-trick scored by Yoan Gignac and other four goals that will make Cerro's fans have nightmares this week. Remember Celestes: If you ever want to call to Fontvielle, just dial 7.

Oh, the Impact have plenty of goals, while Ajax are missing them. Poor Immigrants...

Cardenales FC 1-4 AS Bezieres (Martínez 52'; Collazos 12', Vercoutre 35', Hardy 49', Revault 68')
Canalave Dragons 1-2 SC Caimanes (Leclerc 27'; Araújo 38', Tiago Neves 74')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-2 Nacional (Simão 15'; Vélez 23', Renato 79')
Marinos Metropolis 2-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Aguilar 48', 85'; Casanova 35')
Tannenberg FC 2-2 Nord Energie FC (Pérez 68', Peterson 79'; Gomes 15', 36')
Slateport Bulls 1-0 Pradera FC (Velasco 41')
AC Tallin 1-4 Eterna Stars (Aldemar 45'+1'; Andrade 8', Londoño 17', Mosquera 68', Reyes 74')
Fontvielle Impact 7-1 AD Cerro (de Roux 7', 78', Gignac 13', 29', 42', Romero 51', Perrin 85'; Vargas 59')
Chiquito FC 0-2 AS Vaud (Carrasso 26', Payet 63')
Metropolis Alligators 2-0 Ajax Carloburgo (Gutiérrez 17, Koit 72')


MD5:

Bezieres won their fifth match in a row in this Apertura, ratifying themselves as the best team until the moment, with perfect performance. Marinos and the Alligators complete the podium with their clear victories, while the Impact were unable to repeat the done the last week and drew nil-nil in Pradera. Nacional ended the Citizens' unbeaten streak, Vaud took advantage of Ajax's offensive anemia and beat them with ease, while Cardenales and Chiquito were thrashed and sink themselves in last place with no points yet.

MD6:

Bezieres' victorious walk came to an end in Fontvielle, where Olympique beat Les Rouges in a thrilling match. Metropolis Alligators were the ones who took advantage of Bezieres' defeat, as they became sole leaders with 16 points. Tannenberg had to suffer to beat Cardenales, who are the only team who must count all their matches as defeats. Chiquito got rid of their bad streak and defeated the irregular Nord Energie, Marinos and the Impact slipped with their draws at home, and Caimanes returned the "favour" done to them by the Bulls in the King's Shield with an opprobrious 5-1. Nacional are still climbing up, while the Stars enjoy Ajax's current moment to defeat them one-nil.

MD7:

The Alligators showed an impressive display of offensive power in Gatineau, which helped them to keep the first place in the Apertura, with 19 points. However, Bezieres are not willing to let them get away and defeated Marinos. The Mariners and the Impact lost their unbeaten streaks: Marinos, as aforementioned, lost in Bezieres, and the Impact was defeated in Campo Grande. Nacional thrashed Chiquito, and Olympique and Tannenberg divided honours. After seven matches, Ajax could finally celebrate a goal. But Nord Energie overturned the result, leaving the Immigrants in last place thanks to Cardenales' victory over Tallin.

MD8:

Metropolis Alligators managed to stay at the top of the standings for another week, after their victory in the "Reptilian Derby". However, Nacional had few problems to get three points from Parken Road, escorting the Alligators with 21 points. In a hard-fought match, Tannenberg defeated the reigning champions, inflicting to them their second defeat in the Apertura and hurting their chances. Slateport Bulls humiliated Marinos in the "Blue Derby" and the Stars are regaining positions with their victory over Pradera. Pradera, Tallin and Ajax are the only teams with no victories so far.

Tannenberg FC 2-1 AS Bezieres (Ruiz 39', 77'; Collazos 51')

AD Cerro 1-1 Nord Energie FC (Alvarado 33'; Gomes 17')
Eterna Stars 3-0 Pradera FC (Mosquera 52', 78', Andrade 61')


MD9:

A great victory in Canalave keeps the Alligators at the top of the standings with 26 points, while they see how their rivals are giving away points. In the "little Metropolitan derby", Joan Galletti's goal when the match was almost over prevented Nacional from getting another victory over the demoralized Cerro. Although Los Albos drew, Bezieres' and Eterna's victories made even closer the fight for the second place. Tannenberg defeated Tallin in their city derby, and Chiquito held Olympique to a draw in Fontvielle. In Toril, Pradera got their first victory of the season, as did Ajax in Valencia. Tallin are now the only winless side in the Apertura, and therefore are in last place with only 3 points.

AS Bezieres 2-1 Slateport Bulls (Hardy 34', Vercoutre 76'; Quintero 54')
Tannenberg FC 2-1 AC Tallin (Peterson 44, Ruiz 83'; Aldemar 87')
Marinos Metropolis 0-3 Fontvielle Impact (Gignac 39', de Roux 55', 82')

Gatineau UC 98 1-2 Eterna Stars (Machado 32'; Torres 17', Mosquera 31')
Nord Energie FC 0-1 Pradera FC (Borrero 83')


MD10:

We've finally reached Matchday 10, the end of this first part of Super League. So, what have we got until the moment? Metropolis Alligators, who defeated their arch-rivals Marinos Metropolis with a goal scored by Tyrrinian scorer Chase Koit, are leading this Apertura with 28 out of 30 points and still unbeaten. This shows the Alligators will be a strong team, or at least they are showing that at the moment. In a "second level", we have the current champions Bezieres, the King's Shield winners Eterna Stars, Nacional and Fontvielle Impact, who can say they could be rivals for the Alligators in this Apertura. Tannenberg, Olympique, Marinos and Slateport are some distinguished names that are part of the irregularity lot this time and will have to improve in order to keep their chances alive. Cerro were booed by their fans after another dismal performance, and Tallin are still in last place.

AC Tallin 1-2 AS Bezieres (Sierra 27'; Uribe 13', Revault 47')
Fontvielle Impact 1-0 Slateport Bulls (Bársenas 60')

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - ELEVENTH SEASON (PART II OF IV)


Apertura Tournament

MD11:

The Alligators remain unstoppable in this Apertura, and are still at the top with 31 points, after a victory over one of their most hated rivals: Slateport Bulls. The "Derby du Foix" between Bezieres and the Impact ended in a one-all draw, hurting both and favoring the Alligators. The Stars are now in second place after a great victory in Canalave, and Nacional's victory over Gatineau sends Los Albos to third, dropping the current champions to the fourth place. Ajax humiliated Tannenberg once more and Chiquito sank Tallin in last place, with no victories.

AS Bezieres 1-1 Fontvielle Impact (Collazos 67'; Gignac 21')
AC Tallin 0-1 Chiquito FC (Torres 32')
Slateport Bulls 0-2 Metropolis Alligators (Londoño 62', Macías 80')
Tannenberg FC 0-3 Ajax Carloburgo (Ferreira 38', Rogers 49', Rivas 71')
Marinos Metropolis 1-0 AS Vaud (Oliveira 42')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-0 AD Cerro (Simão 18')
Canalave Dragons 0-2 Eterna Stars (Andrade 32', Torres 78')
Cardenales FC 1-1 Pradera FC (Quiceno 88'; Phillips 11')
SC Caimanes 1-2 Nord Energie FC (Kléver 50'; Nicholls 3', Evans 29')
Nacional 3-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Renato 17', 72', Smith 44'; González 39')


MD12:

We expected a great game at the Dome this weekend with the two winningest teams of the Super League facing each other. It was a tough and hard-fought match, but the victory went to the home team, the Alligators, who are still in first place with 34 points. The Stars won their ninth match in a row and are still in second place. Against all odds, Nacional lost to Caimanes, who are still reeling in the lower part of standings. Pradera won their first game at home against a tough Olympique, while the "Carloburgo's little derby" was the most boring match this week. Zero at all.

Chiquito FC 1-2 AS Bezieres (Gomes 18'; Hardy 46', Lamont 77')
Metropolis Alligators 1-0 Fontvielle Impact (Londoño 37')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-0 AC Tallin

Pradera FC 4-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Garcés 5', Ruiz 43', Tello 62', 84'; Montes 29', Filo 50')
Nord Energie FC 0-3 Canalave Dragons (McAllister 44', 65', Leclerc 72')
Gatineau UC 98 2-1 Cardenales FC (Casanova 27', Machado 34'; Rosero 74')
Nacional 0-1 SC Caimanes (Beltrán 86')


MD13:

The reigning champions Bezieres were the ones who could finally put an end to the Alligators' long unbeaten streak with their victory over them at the Jules Picot. Although the Green-Blues are still at the top, Eterna's thrashing of Slateport reduces the difference between the first and second place to just one point. Nacional, with 29 points, tries to keep up with the top 3, the Impact, Olympique and Tannenberg recover with their respective victories and Tallin completed 13 matches without a victory.

AS Bezieres 1-0 Metropolis Alligators (Vercoutre 79')
Chiquito FC 1-1 Ajax Carloburgo (Cifuentes 39'; Johansson-Bakvis 9')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 AS Vaud (Demont 42', de Roux 67')

Marinos Metropolis 0-2 Nord Energie FC (Andrews 2', 59')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Puel 26', Lopera 77'; Tabanou 47')
Canalave Dragons 0-3 Nacional (Márquez 17', Vélez 53', Smith 75')
Cardenales FC 1-1 SC Caimanes (Quiceno 31'; Souza 25')


MD14:

The Alligators' surprising loss to Vaud allowed the Stars to reach the top of the standings with 36 points and 11 straight wins. Bezieres humiliated Ajax at Parken Road and sent the Alligators to the third place, thanks to goal difference. Nacional, both teams from Fontvielle and Tannenberg were stopped cold with their respective defeats, and Tallin suffered their tenth defeat in the season. The fight for the Apertura title and the first TQCC berth seems to be reduced to Stars, Rouges and Alligators.

Ajax Carloburgo 1-5 AS Bezieres (Palacios 55'; Lamont 15', 22', Revault 42', Hardy 72', 84')
AS Vaud 3-1 Metropolis Alligators (Ortega 25', Payet 58', 89'; Koit 47')

SC Caimanes 2-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (Araújo 23', Souza 90'+2')
Cardenales FC 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Parra 33'; Carreño 39')


MD15:

Metropolis Alligators returned to the first place after a great victory in the "National Derby" over Eterna Stars, who lost an unbeaten streak of 11 matches and the first place, and fell to the second place. Bezieres lost an important chance to regain the first place with their draw against Vaud at home. Slateport and Cerro are trying to finish the Apertura with a decent performance and thrashed Nacional and Ajax, respectively. Marinos had to suffer to beat Cardenales and Tallin lost again.

AS Bezieres 0-0 AS Vaud
Ajax Carloburgo 0-3 AD Cerro (Villarraga 39', Galletti 58', Riascos 89')
Metropolis Alligators 1-0 Eterna Stars (Koit 57')

Fontvielle Impact 2-1 Nord Energie FC (Gignac 27', 36'; Gomes 57')
AC Tallin 1-2 Gatineau UC 98 (Pereira 24'; Berson 38', Richelieu 60')
Slateport Bulls 4-1 Nacional (Quintero 11', Revault 33', Flórez 49', 76'; Renato 66')
Tannenberg FC 2-0 SC Caimanes (Ruiz 26', 55')
Marinos Metropolis 3-2 Cardenales FC (Aguilar 22', 43', Patiño 79'; Montero 39', Martínez 62')
Olympique de Fontvielle 0-0 Canalave Dragons


MD16:

Metropolis Alligators, Eterna Stars and AS Bezieres are the only teams with chances to win the Apertura. Chase Koit scored a hat-trick in his team's thrashing in Toril, the Stars won over Vaud with ease, while Bezieres defeated Cerro. Nacional, with 30 points, and Fontvielle Impact, with 29, killed each other with their draw. Ajax ended Pradera's unbeaten streak at home with a goal by Grégory Palacios, and Tallin sinks in last place with a painful defeat in Campo Grande.

AD Cerro 2-4 AS Bezieres (Robson 48', Vargas 67'; Revault 17', 79', Hardy 33', Uribe 82')
Eterna Stars 2-0 AS Vaud (Torres 16', Reyes 58')
Pradera FC 0-1 Ajax Carloburgo (Palacios 38')
Nord Energie FC 0-6 Metropolis Alligators (Koit 3', 55', 79', Ospina 25', Botero 71', 90')
Gatineau UC 98 1-1 Chiquito FC (Casanova 28'; Castroneves 62')
Nacional 0-0 Fontvielle Impact
SC Caimanes 4-1 AC Tallin (Lucio 12', Rosero 28', 43', Souza 74'; Russell 81')
Cardenales FC 1-2 Slateport Bulls (Ortega 39'; Flórez 77', Quintero 80')
Canalave Dragons 0-0 Tannenberg FC
Olympique de Fontvielle 3-0 Marinos Metropolis (Filo 18', Govou 49', Santos 70')


MD17:

The Super League champions manage to get rid of the King's Shield champions, and take the lead with 41 points. The Alligators were surprised by Nacional, and suffered a dangerous defeat that will surely cost them the TQCC berth in the last two matchdays. The Chiquito Derby was won by Chiquito, Tannenberg are trying to have a decent end and Tallin won their first match after 17 matches.

In the last two matchdays, the Alligators have to face Cardenales and Olympique, Bezieres will face Pradera and Nord Energie, and the Stars will visit Toril before their closing against Nacional. Who among those three has it easier?

AS Bezieres 2-0 Eterna Stars (Collazos 19', Revault 90'+4')
AD Cerro 0-0 Pradera FC
AS Vaud 1-0 Nord Energie FC (Payet 52')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Rogers 57')
Metropolis Alligators 0-2 Nacional (Ruiz 14', Renato 68')
Chiquito FC 4-1 SC Caimanes (Gomes 7', Barrera 36', Dickens 77', Méndez 88'; Tiago Neves 20')
Fontvielle Impact 1-1 Cardenales FC (Bársenas 44'; Martínez 86')
AC Tallin 2-0 Canalave Dragons (Aldemar 60', 86')
Slateport Bulls 1-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Revault 42'; Simão 15', Puel 72')
Tannenberg FC 3-1 Marinos Metropolis (Alex 18', Pérez 29', Ruiz 63'; Acuña 35')


MD18:

Thanks to their victory in Pradera, and Eterna's and Alligators' respective punctures, Les Rouges are the Apertura champions and will compete in the next TQCC. Despite being trailing most of the match, Nord Energie managed to spoil the Stars' party and left them in second place. But today's surprise happened in Valencia, with the Alligators' loss to Cardenales, which prevented them from having a chance to compete for the TQCC berth. After many seasons, Olympique defeated the Impact in the Derby du Fontvielle, and Tallin managed to make Marinos' life miserable with a draw.

Pradera FC 0-2 AS Bezieres (Rousseau 19', Hardy 73')
Nord Energie FC 2-2 Eterna Stars (Evans 56', Andrews 83'; Palacios 12', Andrade 42')
Gatineau UC 98 1-1 AD Cerro (Machado 15'; Riascos 34')
Nacional 1-0 AS Vaud (Renato 22')
SC Caimanes 0-0 Ajax Carloburgo
Cardenales FC 2-0 Metropolis Alligators (Martínez 19, Montero 75')
Canalave Dragons 1-0 Chiquito FC (Leclerc 27')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-1 Fontvielle Impact (Filo 47', Puel 76'; Gignac 23')
Marinos Metropolis 1-1 AC Tallin (Oliveira 11'; Aldemar 73')
Tannenberg FC 1-3 Slateport Bulls (Coleman 2'; Lennon 18', Suárez 48', Arribagé 85')


MD19:

And the end of the Apertura is here...Bezieres had already clinched the TQCC berth since the last matchday, so none of the matches in this matchday are that important. We can feature the victories of Metropolis Alligators, Chiquito and Slateport Bulls, and the draw between the Impact and Tannenberg. The Dragons, Pradera, Gatineau, Cardenales and Tallin made a poor showing before the Clausura and will be the ones with the most problems with relegation in the next part of this season.

AS Bezieres 1-0 Nord Energie FC (Revault 44')
Pradera FC 1-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Borrero 29')
Eterna Stars 2-1 Nacional (Millers 11', Andrade 73'; Márquez 38')
AD Cerro 2-0 SC Caimanes (Riascos 15', 78')
AS Vaud 1-0 Cardenales FC (Ortega 27')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-0 Canalave Dragons (Johansson-Bakvis 52')
Metropolis Alligators 4-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Koit 16', Londoño 30', Gutiérrez 50', 72'; Filo 47')
Chiquito FC 3-1 Marinos Metropolis (Torres 40', Dickens 53', Barrera 84'; Patiño 63')

In the start of this Clausura we saw that almost all the favourites to win the title won: Bezieres defeated Gatineau with few problems, Nacional got rid of Nord Energie at home, and the Stars managed to get their first three points in Valencia.

MD2:

Four teams are leading the Clausura with 6 points each: Marinos, the Alligators, Canalave Dragons and Nacional. Nacional gave a shock to the reigning champions, with their victory at the Jules Picot, the first defeat for Les Rouges at home in the whole season. Olympique are starting to defend their fifth place in the Overall Standings with their victory in Eterna City, while Tannenberg, Slateport and Marinos enter in the fight for the last Globe Cup spot.

MD3:

After three matches in this Clausura, Nacional and Marinos are at the top of the standings with 9 points. Their victories over Cardenales and Pradera give them more confidence for the next matches. The Alligators suffered an ugly defeat in Chiquito, and the Stars humiliated Tannenberg at their stadium. The Impact suffered more than necessary to defeat Ajax, and Gatineau and Nord Energie surprised Canalave Dragons and Olympique de Fontvielle in their respective matches. Gatineau's victory in Canalave, added to Pradera's loss in Metropolis, sends Los Verdiblancos to the relegation zone.

The Alligators had some problems with Ajax, and Tallin humiliated the Stars at their stadium. The Impact won their third match in this Clausura, taking from their city rivals the fifth place in the Overall Standings.

MD5:

Despite their boring draw against Caimanes, Marinos are still as leaders of the Clausura with 13 points. Since Marinos is placed eighth in the Overall Standings, Fontvielle Impact, Olympique and Tannenberg are forced to get points in order to reach the fourth place, which is the last qualifying spot to the Globe Cup at the moment. We saw two matches full of goals: the Stars thrashed Chiquito, and Tannenberg humiliated Nacional. Pradera, Gatineau and Ajax are still involved in a three-teams race to not get relegated at the end of the season.

MD6:

Fontvielle Impact lost an important chance to reach the first place after their draw in Gatineau and Marinos' draw in Canalave. Nacional and Tannenberg are also exerting pressure over the Mariners with their respective victories. Bezieres lost at home to Olympique, who are in the heat of the fight for the fifth place in the Overall Standings.

MD7:

Fontvielle Impact and Nacional take the lead in the Clausura taking advantage of Marinos' draw with defending champions Bezieres. The Alligators are now fourth, after defeating Gatineau, and the Stars fifth. In the Overall Standings, Tannenberg and Olympique cancelled themselves with their one-all draw, and the Bulls are trying to get closer to Citizens and Olympique, both now involved in the fight for the AFI spot. Pradera lost again, and saw how Ajax were moving away from the relegation zone, while Cardenales celebrated a victory for the first time since the 2-0 over Metropolis Alligators in the Apertura.

MD8:

With a clear victory in the always complicated Dragon Stadium, Fontvielle Impact are still at the top in the Clausura, with 19 points. Ajax's ultra-defensive strategy held Nacional to a draw, however, Nacional must thank Bezieres and Tallin, who defeated Tannenberg and Olympique de Fontvielle, respectively. Metropolis Alligators and Eterna Stars are still trying to get closer to the first place, and Slateport put an end to Marinos' unbeaten streak with their victory at the Dome. Meanwhile, in the relegation zone, Pradera are still stuck to the red zone, and Caimanes and Canalave Dragons "entered" to the fight. Gatineau's and Ajax's good results keep them hoping to save themselves, and Cardenales and Tallin can be considered as lost cause.

MD9:

In a thrilling match at the Stade de l'Amitié, Fontvielle Impact lost to Marinos Metropolis, thus way losing the first place in the Clausura. Nacional, who had to wait 80 minutes to get the upper hand in their match against Cerro, are the new leaders with 20 points, along with Metropolis Alligators, who left Canalave Dragons in red alert. In the fight for the UICA spots, Tannenberg reduced the difference between them and the Impact to three points, while Olympique are relinquishing their chances. Paulo Machado and Gatineau gave a shock to the Stars at the Alain Tramontin, while Caimanes' victory over Vaud sends the Dragons to 17th. Pradera are seeing how their rivals move away and how the possibility of playing the B-League is getting closer.

Slateport Bulls 1-0 AS Bezieres (López 61')
AC Tallin 0-2 Tannenberg FC (Pérez 32', Ruiz 71')

MD10:

After 10 matches in this Clausura, Nacional are leading with 23 points, showing a great defensive performance, conceding only 6 goals (five of them scored by Tannenberg) and getting 8 clean sheets in 10 matches. Next we have Metropolis Alligators, with 21 points, and Fontvielle Impact with 20 points, who seem to be the strongest opponents Nacional will have. As for the UICA spots, currently, Metropolis Alligators and Eterna Stars are assuring a return to the Globe Cup, and Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg FC and Olympique de Fontvielle are involved in a fight for both the last UICA spot and the AFI spot. As for the relegation zone, Ajax Carloburgo and Gatineau are close to save themselves from relegation, while Canalave Dragons, SC Caimanes and Pradera FC seem the ones fighting for the last Super League spot for the next season. Currently, Dragons and Jacarés are six points clear of Pradera, but that can change during the next nine matches, so stay tuned.

AS Bezieres 2-0 AC Tallin (Collazos 10', Revault 85')

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - ELEVENTH SEASON (PART IV OF IV)


Clausura Tournament

MD11:

Nacional's victory in Gatineau keeps them in the first place in this Clausura, with 26 points. Fontvielle Impact defeated the defending champions Bezieres in the Derby du Foix and are still in second place with 23 points. Speaking of regional derbies, Tannenberg got revenge of Ajax and defeated them at Parken Road, while the derby between Stars and Dragons ended in a draw. The Alligators and the Stars seem to be safe in Globe Cup qualifying places at the moment, while Tannenberg and Olympique threaten the fifth place, currently being held by the Impact. Despite their victory against Cardenales, a direct rival, Pradera are still with problems with relegation, as they are are trailing by 3 points with the 17th placed, Gatineau.

Fontvielle Impact 1-0 AS Bezieres (Romero 85')
Chiquito FC 1-2 AC Tallin (Cifuentes 60'; Andersen 22', Aldemar 81')

AD Cerro 1-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Vargas 63'; Santos 26', Simão 48')
Eterna Stars 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Londoño 73'; Thomas 52')
Pradera FC 2-0 Cardenales FC (Phillips 25', Tello 86')
Nord Energie FC 1-2 SC Caimanes (Taylor 17'; Souza 40', 83')
Gatineau UC 98 1-2 Nacional (Richelieu 12'; Ruiz 9', Márquez 74')


MD12:

The head-to-head between Nacional and Fontvielle Impact is the constant in this Clausura. Fontvielle Impact's victory over the Alligators was meaningless as Nacional managed to win in Campo Grande, leaving things as they were before this matchday. Tannenberg, with 25 points, are fighting on two fronts, as they are third in the Clausura and have options to get one of the berths to the next Globe Cup. However, Olympique are not willing to give up, as they are trailing by 5 points with the fifth placed, the Impact. The champions are far from the top of the standings, and Pradera, Cardenales and Tallin are having a slow and painful funeral.

AS Bezieres 1-2 Chiquito FC (Hardy 38'; Méndez 55', Barrera 79')
Fontvielle Impact 1-0 Metropolis Alligators (Gignac 68')
AC Tallin 0-4 Ajax Carloburgo (Johansson-Bakvis 5', 73', 88', Palacios 34')

Marinos Metropolis 0-0 Eterna Stars
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-1 Pradera FC (Montes 28', Santos 63'; Borrero 49')
Canalave Dragons 2-2 Nord Energie FC (Silva 33', Leclerc 85'; Andrews 15', Gomes 74')
Cardenales FC 0-3 Gatineau UC 98 (Richelieu 33', Casanova 55', Machado 82')
SC Caimanes 0-3 Nacional (Renato 19', Lecompte 33', Márquez 77')


MD13:

Nacional's resounding loss to the Dragons in Cerro and Impact's victory in Vaud allow the Impact to level Nacional in points, just losing the first place on goal difference. Tannenberg, who sank Pradera in the relegation zone, are third, trailing just by a point. The Alligators and Stars are starting to see how their GC berths are being threatened by the Impact and Tannenberg, and the difference between Caimanes and Pradera increased to seven points. Cardenales, with just 18 points in the whole season, could be relegated in the next matchday.

Metropolis Alligators 1-2 AS Bezieres (Koit 37'; Revault 53', Hardy 66')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-1 Chiquito FC (Ferreira 28'; Barrera 59')

SC Caimanes 2-2 Cardenales FC (Lucio 43', Beltrán 73; Ortega 27', Martínez 60')


MD14:

Nacional, Fontvielle Impact and Tannenberg FC seem to be the teams that will be fighting for the Clausura title and the last TQCC berth. While the Citizens beat Gatineau with ease, Nacional and the Impact had difficult matches against Marinos and Eterna, respectively. Speaking of Eterna, their situation in the Overall Standings got complicated since their loss to the Impact, Tannenberg's victory and Nacional's first place in the Clausura reduced the difference between those three teams to one point, so the Stars' GC berth begins to crumble. Olympique seem to be a bit far from the fifth place, while the Alligators and Nacional are starting to assure their presence in UICA football the next season. As for the relegation part, Pradera's draw doesn't change things despite it reduces the difference with Caimanes to six points, and Cardenales were relegated after their humiliating defeat in Canalave.

AS Bezieres 2-0 Ajax Carloburgo (Lamont 38', Revault 66')
Metropolis Alligators 2-1 AS Vaud (Macías 37', Koit 59'; Ortega 78')
Chiquito FC 2-2 AD Cerro (Barrera 55', Dickens 74'; Alvarado 34', Riascos 83')

Olympique de Fontvielle 2-1 SC Caimanes (Filo 36', Santos 69'; Souza 82')
Canalave Dragons 5-1 Cardenales FC (Jones 1', McAllister 9', Carreño 26', Thomas 49', Silva 63'; Rosales 88')


MD15:

Fontvielle Impact took advantage of Nacional's and Tannenberg's respective draws with Slateport and Caimanes to take the first place with 35 points. With their victory in Toril, the Impact are closer to the Clausura title, the second and last TQCC berth and an eventual fourth national title. The loss to the Alligators in the National Derby was a dangerous slip for the Stars, who dropped to the fifth place in the Overall Standings and see Tannenberg as a potential threat. In order to assure their presence in UICA tournaments, the Alligators need four points, while Nacional need six. Tallin were relegated with their defeat in Gatineau, and Pradera are unable to take advantage of Caimanes' stumbles and are closer to play the B-League.

AS Vaud 2-3 AS Bezieres (Ortega 38', Sandro 82'; Lamont 47', Hardy 64', 79')
AD Cerro 3-3 Ajax Carloburgo (Galletti 29', Riascos 66', Vargas 84'; Rogers 18', Palacios 55', Johansson-Bakvis 60')

SC Caimanes 2-2 Tannenberg FC (Tiago Neves 22', Araújo 56'; Pérez 52', Peterson 73')
Cardenales FC 3-1 Marinos Metropolis (Montero 56', Quiceno 62', Parra 90'+3'; Aguilar 29')
Canalave Dragons 1-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (Leclerc 33')


MD16:

In the most interesting and thrilling match in the Clausura so far, Fontvielle Impact and Nacional drew 2-2. However, the most benefited team were Tannenberg, who are now in second place with their victory over the irregular Canalave Dragons. Bezieres also hold a little hope of winning the Clausura with their victory over Cerro. Metropolis Alligators are close to return to the Globe Cup, and the Stars fell to the sixth place, currently giving the AFI berth to Olympique de Fontvielle, who are in seventh place, with few chances of reaching the fifth place and/or the last GC spot. Pradera managed to reduce the difference with Cerro and Ajax, and Caimanes' victory in Carloburgo gives them some confidence for their last matches.

AS Bezieres 2-1 AD Cerro (Lamont 37', Uribe 44'; Galletti 66')
AS Vaud 1-1 Eterna Stars (Payet 87'; Torres 33')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-2 Pradera FC (Borrero 39', Garcés 67')
Metropolis Alligators 1-1 Nord Energie FC (Koit 28'; Taylor 55')
Chiquito FC 1-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Barrera 68'; Berson 71')
Fontvielle Impact 2-2 Nacional (de Roux 17', 26'; Vélez 59', Renato 78')
AC Tallin 1-3 SC Caimanes (Sierra 49'; Tiago Neves 17', Souza 33', Anthony 88')
Slateport Bulls 1-1 Cardenales FC (Arribagé 33'; Ortega 73')
Tannenberg FC 2-1 Canalave Dragons (Pérez 19', 75'; Carreño 45'+1')
Marinos Metropolis 0-3 Olympique de Fontvielle (Filo 36', 68', 75')


MD17:

Fontvielle Impact are closer and closer to the Clausura title and the TQCC berth with their victory in Valencia, however, they are just a point clear of Tannenberg, who got an important victory in Metropolis. The draw with Nacional was enough to assure the Alligators' presence in the next Globe Cup, but at the same time, it hurts Nacional's chances to win the title. The Stars are going to be left only with the Cygnus Cup berth, while Olympique lost all their chances to qualify to UICA competitions the next season, and will have to fight with Slateport Bulls for the AFI berth. After losing a valuable chance to defeat a direct rival, Pradera will have to win in Bezieres the next matchday. Otherwise, they would be relegated...

Eterna Stars 0-0 AS Bezieres

Olympique de Fontvielle 0-4 Slateport Bulls (Flórez 26', Quintero 38', Velasco 59', 74')
Marinos Metropolis 1-3 Tannenberg FC (Oliveira 26'; Alex 16', Peterson 58', Ruiz 73')


MD18:

Fontvielle Impact and Tannenberg FC will define in Carloburgo the next matchday who will win the Clausura and the second TQCC berth. The Impact, with 42 points, have the upper hand, after their victory in the Derby du Fontvielle against a tough Olympique de Fontvielle, while Tannenberg undermined Slateport Bulls' chances to qualify for the AFI with their draw. As for the relegation zone, we will have more drama the next matchday, with Pradera and Ajax trying to not get relegated. Pradera are trailing by 3 points and will have to win in Gatineau and wait for a victory of the Dragons over Ajax. This season is about to end, and six teams will be fighting to assure their future.

AS Bezieres 0-0 Pradera FC
Eterna Stars 1-1 Nord Energie FC (Andrade 38'; Romero 59')
AD Cerro 2-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Galletti 27', Robson 38')
AS Vaud 0-3 Nacional (Renato 18', Ruiz 38', Lecompte 76')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-2 SC Caimanes (Johansson-Bakvis 83'; Souza 36', Araújo 74')
Metropolis Alligators 3-1 Cardenales FC (Botero 36', Gutiérrez 66', Koit 89'; Rosales 18')
Chiquito FC 0-2 Canalave Dragons (Jones 47', Leclerc 72')
Fontvielle Impact 2-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Gignac 27', 90'+3'; Filo 88')
AC Tallin 0-3 Marinos Metropolis (Aguilar 38', 77', Oliveira 53')
Slateport Bulls 2-2 Tannenberg FC (López 25', Flórez 68'; Coleman 37', Ruiz 79')


MD19:

Some matches of no importance at all, all of them played on Saturday evening...

Nord Energie FC 1-2 AS Bezieres (Evans 33'; Revault 63', Vercoutre 84')
SC Caimanes 3-1 AD Cerro (Beltrán 20', Araújo 69', Souza 87'; Riascos 42')
Cardenales FC 1-0 AS Vaud (Montero 55')
Marinos Metropolis 0-1 Chiquito FC (Dickens 77')


And the "important matches" in this day:

Gatineau UC 98 0-0 Pradera FC
Nacional 0-2 Eterna Stars (Mosquera 44', Reyes 68')
Canalave Dragons 0-4 Ajax Carloburgo (Ferreira 28', Rivas 36', Palacios 68', Johansson-Bakvis 83')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-2 Metropolis Alligators (Simão 36', Montes 67'; Londoño 19', Macías 84')
Tannenberg FC 0-0 Fontvielle Impact
Slateport Bulls 4-0 AC Tallin (Arribagé 25', 86', Flórez 56', Lennon 72')


A boring draw in Carloburgo was enough to crown Fontvielle Impact as Clausura champions. Therefore, they will play Bezieres in the Canalave Crown, and will take part in the next TQCC. The Alligators and Nacional qualify again to the Globe Cup, and Tannenberg returns to the international stage after clinching the last Globe Cup spot. Eterna Stars ended in sixth place, however, since they already qualified to the Cygnus Cup as the King's Shield winners, they are inelegible to qualify for the Aeropag Football Invitational, and Olympique de Fontvielle will travel to Aeropag in their place. Pradera said good-bye to the Super League with a boring scoreless draw in Gatineau and will be competing along with Cardenales and Tallin in the B-League the next season, becoming the first team from a state capital in being relegated. What a shame...And, here are the standings:

The Valladar Super League is about to start its twelfth edition, and the premier magazine in valladar football, The Kickoff Magazine, has decided to present their usual fan preview, in association with us. They asked a fan from each of the 20 clubs that will compete the next season in the Super League to talk about their teams for the coming season. In this "fan preview" they will be asked about their hopes, fears, wishes and other "interesting" stuff including a random question about their teams...So let's enjoy of what our fans think about their teams (and their rivals, too...) while the real action starts.

AD Cerro - Pablo Grisales

Hopes: That we somehow can sneak into the Top-6.
Fears: Be relegated.
Make a wish: Defeat Nacional at Canalave. That'd be great!
Other fans think our club...is too defensive and is against fair play.
Other fans think our fans...are vandals, aggressive and not loyal to their team.
Best away fans: Alligators', Marinos' and Nacional's fans. They give our stadium that special derby atmosphere every time we face them.
Best away ground: Gatineau. It's not far from here, their fans aren't hooligans and ours can have half of the stadium if they want to!
Manager's popularity out of 10: 5.5. I don't disapprove Gilbert Favrè's job, but I don't approve it either.
Where will you finish: I think we won't finish higher than 10th.
Last season Cerro was close to get relegated. Will your team manage to be safe from the red zone this time? I trust my team and I'm sure they won't disappoint me. This time we'll be away from that terrible zone.


Ajax Carloburgo - Stephen Busch

Hopes: That we won't be thrashed in every match.
Fears: Per-Olivier Johannson-Bakvis is tempted by a big offer from some big team and leaves our team.
Make a wish: Do the "double" over the Alligators, Tannenberg and the Stars.
Other fans think our club...is a sieve on defense.
Other fans think our fans...are far too civilized to attend football and an easy target to be bribed for seats at the stands.
Best away fans: Bezieres' fans. They are meaning of zero destruction in our city.
Best away ground: Trips to Slateport are always remarkable.
Manager's popularity out of 10: I'd give Clark an eight, with a possibility of turning into a nine if we avoid relegation.
Where will you finish: Let's face it, we'll end in 17th place once again, avoiding relegation on the last day of the season.
Do you think a Tannenberg-Ajax match at the Canalave Crown can be possible in the short-term? Judging by the current moment of us, no. However, dreams can come true.


AS Bezieres - Jean-Pierre Gilleron

Hopes: The tri-championship with the Alligators as losers of the final match.
Fears: An Aeropag berth courtesy of the Alligators, the Impact, the Stars, Nacional and Tannenberg.
Make a wish: Metropolis Alligators in seventh place and the Impact being sent to the B-League.
Other fans think our club...is better, richer and stronger than they would care to admit.
Other fans think our fans...are not like them (hooligans) and have a rich daddy. And that makes us better than 'em!
Best away fans: When those pesky Bleus are in town I feel happy.
Best away ground: The Dome. First-class instalations, shame about its teams!
Manager's popularity out of 10: 10.
Where will you finish: Hopefully near the top, if not at the top itself.
Is there any chance of Patrick Hardy leaving Bezieres, judging by his current performance? No. And I don't think Mr. Saint-Lorent wants to get rid of him either.


AS Montreux - Martin Dalamont

Hopes: A comfortable mid-table finish this season and stability the following one.
Fears: Get relegated, in last place and with everyone stomping us like cockroaches.
Make a wish: Montreux winning the Apertura, the Clausura and lifting the Crown. All in just a season.
Other fans think our club...is poor, has an ugly stadium and shouldn't have been promoted.
Other fans think our fans...wouldn't care to sell to them their tickets when other teams come to Montreux.
Best away fans: I'd say Valencia and Hamanos. Our matches at the Micoud against them the last season in the B-League always had more than 10,000 fans at the stadium!
Best away ground: I'd love to visit that new stadium built by Tannenberg. It looks beautiful in the pictures I've cut from my magazines and newspapers.
Manager's popularity out of 10: Nine. If he didn't wear that red scarf in every match, it'd be an eight.
Where will you finish: Being optimistic, I'll go for a 17th place.
Everyone deems Montreux as the first relegated team for the next season. Will that be true? Everyone envies us. And I think these Herons will fly higher than what they believe.


AS Vaud - Jacques Chevin

Hopes: That we are competitive enough to stay at the middle of the standings.
Fears: Losing Alain Payet and being relegated in the process.
Make a wish: Gatineau in last place, with zero points and zero goals for.
Other fans think our club...likes to lose.
Other fans think our fans...are conceited and are disappointed by their team's constant failures, due to this, they are secretly planning to support other teams.
Best away fans: Gatineau's fans always make derbies at the Mouliere worthy of being called "derbies".
Best away ground: The Omnisports at Gatineau. Although I reckon it'll be our next home...
Manager's popularity out of 10: Seven.
Where will you finish: Can't predict an exact place, but I bet we'll end higher than Gatineau and the relegation zone.
Stade Mouliere or Stade Omnisports? Our stadium is small but it's a nice place, but the Omnisports isn't that bad.


Canalave Dragons - Paul Green

Hopes: The King's Shield. If we can't get the Shield, we'll be happy with sixth place or higher.
Fears: That the Board decides to renovate the manager's contract.
Make a wish: Nord Energie, Stars and Bulls being the three relegated teams this season, so we can be the only team from Eterna in the Super League.
Other fans think our club...is pathetic and is competing in the Super League just to "decorate" the league.
Other fans think our fans...are noisy, annoying and are from the neighbouring countries.
Best away fans: We like to mark in our calendars the dates when those Yellow crowds from Eterna and these blue Bulls come to our city.
Best away ground: The Alain Tramontin. It's near, the tickets are cheap, but those yellow-painted stands make me blind.
Manager's popularity out of 10: 4. No comments.
Where will you finish: 12th, maybe 13th.
Will the Dragons get rid from that bad streak they have since Manuel Ríos' arrival? Of course we will!...when he leaves.


Chiquito FC - Guilherme Gomes

Hopes: A placement inside the Top-10. If it includes a trip to somewhere, better.
Fears: Relegation. We don't want to suffer the same jokes Pradera suffered last season.
Make a wish: Away victories at Caimanes, Eterna, Bezieres, Tannenberg and Alligators.
Other fans think our club...lacks of an "effective" Board, an "effective" coach and "effective" players.
Other fans think our fans...are always annoyed and hate everyone and everything.
Best away fans: Caimanes' fans are the best. Derbies are more intense when your rival lives next to you.
Best away ground: I'd go for either Bezieres or Canalave. Those fields are never empty, even if their team is in last place!
Manager's popularity out of 10: Six.
Where will you finish: Top-10.
Cotdelapomais Alain Williams was recently signed by the Board as their most important reinforcement for this upcoming season. Will he be the answer to the team's problems at the goal? Time will tell...I haven't seen him playing.


Eterna Stars - Jack Fox

Hopes: Another title or cup. The Double as a bonus track.
Fears: That we fall out of the Top-10.
Make a wish: Slateport, Tannenberg, Bezieres, the Impact and the Alligators going bankrupcy.
Other fans think our club...is traditional but a nice target to kick.
Other fans think our fans...use "outlandish" clothes and hate to see others celebrating titles.
Best away fans: The Dragons like to re-decorate the stands at our stadium, but their tifo show before the match is worth to see.
Best away ground: Tannenberg. It's a pity it's full of mourners!
Manager's popularity out of 10: Eight.
Where will you finish: Runners-up, behind Bezieres but ahead of the Impact, the Alligators and all these ugly people we hate.
The Double wasn't possible last season. Will the Stars be able to win it this time? Of course we can! And we will.


Fontvielle Impact - Jermaine Lussac

Hopes: That we manage to win our fourth title over either the MA or the Rouges.
Fears: Bezieres and the Alligators levelling us in the honors with a title.
Make a wish: A new Gilbert Le Tallec being promoted from our youth squads.
Other fans think our club...is wealthy and likes to take advantage of its owners in order to win titles.
Other fans think our fans...have a long way to behave as a big team fans.
Best away fans: It's got to be Bezieres and the Alligators. Olympique fans don't make us feel like if we were in a real derby.
Best away ground: I'll miss my visits to the Stade Mouliere. But I think we'll have more space at the Omnisports.
Manager's popularity out of 10: Can I say 11?
Where will you finish: First place, above Bezieres and the Alligators, the teams we hate the most...ah, and the Stars.
Do you think Yoan Gignac and Jean-Pierre de Roux will stay for a long time in Fontvielle? They are the best players we have, and I don't think the Board are that desperate for money.


Gatineau UC 98 - Antoine Lamont

Hopes: Avoid relegation. And leaving Vaud in that zone in the process.
Fears: A bad start, relegation struggle all the season, with us returning to the B-League.
Make a wish: Be as rich and successful like the Impact, the Alligators and Bezieres.
Other fans think our club...is too defensive and does not deserve to be in the Super League.
Other fans think our fans...are conceited and secretly envy what others have got.
Best away fans: Always Vaud. The Omnisports is a party when they come to a real stadium.
Best away ground: I like to visit Cerro and Nacional. The Miller Hoverberg is a great place, but the National Stadium will be even better!
Manager's popularity out of 10: Eight.
Where will you finish: My heart says 10th, my head says 16th.
Montreux are coming back to the Super League. Is there a chance to create a new rivalry with them? No, unless they defeat us 20-0 at the Omnisports!


Hamanos Athletic Club - Lorenzo Vernaza

Hopes: Be away from relegation during the whole season.
Fears: That the Board gets re-elected in the club's next internal elections.
Make a wish: Win the first title ever for the Antioquia state and do the double over the Bulls.
Other fans think our club...is a joke. Some of them think we don't even exist.
Other fans think our fans...are too busy with the dam next to their town to care about their team.
Best away fans: Slateport. Watching those Bulls across the lake in boats just to attend a match against us is amazing!
Best away ground: Slateport. Although they closed us their doors when we went to ask them to let us play there.
Manager's popularity out of 10: Seven.
Where will you finish: Above the relegation zone, I hope.
After the incident of the stadium, will the rivalry between Slateport and the HAC be even more pumped? Yeah. I'd love to see us thrashing those pesky Bulls at their stadium after what they did to us.


Marinos Metropolis - Jonathan Suárez

Hopes: Win our second title in Canalave against the Alligators.
Fears: That we get another season without invitations to something. Fortunately, there was the Prince's Shield, or whatever it's called.
Make a wish: The Alligators and Slateport being relegated to the Tercera Liga.
Other fans think our club...is the Alligators' mini-version, and the consolation prize for all those who can't beat them.
Other fans think our fans...are noisy but have no choice but cry all the time.
Best away fans: MA's fans are the best. Although the fights at the end of the matches make the police work!
Best away ground: Dragon Stadium. It's a shame their team is red.
Manager's popularity out of 10: 5 or 5.5. If he manages to put us back in UICA, 5.5; if he is unable to, 5.
Where will you finish: I bet we're going to finish in eighth place.
When will Marinos return to at least the Globe Cup? I hope we return soon. I miss my trips to other nations.


Metropolis Alligators - Charles Owen

Hopes: To win a title after nine seasons.
Fears: Missing UICA qualification for the first time in twelve seasons.
Make a wish: Bezieres and the Impact being stripped of all their titles, with them being awarded to the Alligators by default.
Other fans think our club...is rich, fashionable and the team everybody would love to see down.
Other fans think our fans...are noisy and create a great atmosphere wherever they go.
Best away fans: Marinos and Tannenberg fans made a great show when we hosted them at the Dome.
Best away ground: Carloburgo's new stadium. Tannenberg doesn't deserve such a wonderful stadium.
Manager's popularity out of 10: 9. With the possibility to turn to 8 if we don't win this time.
Where will you finish: Champions.
With Impact's and Bezieres' titles, who do you think are now your team's main rivals? I'd say Tannenberg and the Stars are still our main rivals. Fontvielle Impact and Bezieres would be in a second level, and Marinos, Nacional and Slateport are another history.


Nacional - Alberto Ospina

Hopes: Nacional winning a title and sneaking into the group stage of any UICA competition.
Fears: Being left without at least the AFI spot.
Make a wish: Nacional and Cerro playing at Canalave for the title.
Other fans think our club...is a traditional team but not a big one and shouldn't be among the top places every season.
Other fans think our fans...are only loyal when playing at home.
Best away fans: Our Metropolitan rivals always make special the matches between us. I hope the atmosphere of these derbies turns better than ever at Swangard.
Best away ground: I like to travel some kilometers east. The Jules Picot has been always a friendly place.
Manager's popularity out of 10: 10.
Where will you finish: Fourth again?
René Boisbriand comes with good references from Cotdelapoms. Do you think he will lead Nacional to the victory? We saw some videos about him and we could see he is a great player. Let's hope he does a decent job here.


Nord Energie FC - George Conway

Hopes: A Top-10 finish and away victories at Eterna, Slateport and Canalave.
Fears: Being relegated on the last day of the season.
Make a wish: Nord Energie getting a better and bigger stadium and more fans.
Other fans think our club...is a joke and plays at a far, far away place.
Other fans think our fans...are fat, poor, ugly and too loud to be in the Super League.
Best away fans: Alligators and Eterna fans always tend to pack our small stadium. They are the only ones who can guarantee 5,000 people present at the Municipal.
Best away ground: Parken Road. It's small, but beautiful and picturesque.
Manager's popularity out of 10: Seven, according to general consensus.
Where will you finish: 14th.
Of all the Eterna derbies against Canalave, Eterna and Slateport, which would you most like to take six points from? Those Stars fans always like to see the Dragons and us destroying ourselves, so a double against them would freak them out!


Olympique de Fontvielle - Cédric Mignot

Hopes: To stay much closer to the race for the last UICA spot.
Fears: No points against any of our rivals in Foix.
Make a wish: That the Tamount family gets sick with the Impact and decide to sell it.
Other fans think our club...plays good football, but is eclipsed by their richer and more successful brother.
Other fans think our fans... are only good at repairing railway tracks.
Best away fans: Fontvielle Impact. Our derbies against them always have a great atmosphere.
Best away ground: The Dome is by far the best stadium the Super League has got.
Manager's popularity out of 10: 9.
Where will you finish: Either 5th or 6th.
Globe Cup spot or another trip to Aeropag? A qualification to the Globe Cup would be great, but the prizes given in Aeropag are worthwhile.


SC Caimanes - Carlos Magallanes

Hopes: Mid-table stability and a decent performance in the King's Shield.
Fears: Relegation. It would be embarrassing for a club like Caimanes.
Make a wish: To be laughing at Chiquito's relegation.
Other fans think our club...is a traditional club that has lost a lot of its prestige thanks to some mediocre performances.
Other fans think our fans...are noisy but loyal.
Best away fans: When those Verdes cross the toll that separates our cities, that special derby aroma is felt everywhere.
Best away ground: I've always liked Slateport's stadium. It's like ours, just smaller and a bit hotter!
Manager's popularity out of 10: I'd rank it a seven.
Where will you finish: We won't finish inside the Top-10, that's for sure.
Do you think this season will be the start of Caimanes' return to their former glory? If we do a good and decent campaign and we manage to sneak inside the Top-10, it might be possible. But right now, I don't think so.


Slateport Bulls - Luis Carlos Mesa

Hopes: That we manage to return to an international event. Anything will be fine.
Fears: Losing heavily to the Stars and/or Marinos and being in the relegation battle.
Make a wish: Miguel Flórez getting bored in QPeMA and returning home.
Other fans think our club...likes to ridicule in the international stage.
Other fans think our fans...are frustrated jesters.
Best away fans: Eterna, Tannenberg and MA fans are the best and create the best atmosphere.
Best away ground: The Jules Picot is a great stadium - although there's a lot of red on there.
Manager's popularity out of 10: Eight.
Where will you finish: I bet we'll be eighth again.
What do you think about the new foreign reinforcements on offensive? Are they what you expect? I hope they fullfil our expectations, although Miguel Flórez is irreplaceable.


Tannenberg FC - Richard Aulas

Hopes: Win the title.
Fears: Going back to the lower part of the table, and Ajax doing the double over us.
Make a wish: To get rid of that new, incompetent owners.
Other fans think our club...is big, traditional and rich.
Other fans think our fans...are proud, passionate and do not tend to tolerate failure.
Best away fans: These Stars and Alligators fans make interesting tifos at the stands.
Best away ground: The Dome. It was the inspiration for our stadium...which is not public!
Manager's popularity out of 10: I'd give him an 8.5.
Where will you finish: Top five and Globe Cup spot.
Tannenberg are the only team in Valladares owned by foreign investors. The bitterness of that loss to Cap Nordique is still latent or have you already "pardoned" the Board? Having Cotdelapomais owners and Cotdelapomais rivals was like being between a sword and a wall...we won't pardon that in a while.


Valencia FC - Mauricio Cortés

Hopes: Survival. Pure and simple.
Fears: Getting relegated with many weeks to spare.
Make a wish: To get the double against Slateport.
Other fans think our club...is not traditional, its kit colours are ugly and is the typical "elevator team".
Other fans think our fans...are fickle and not loyal.
Best away fans: Slateport and Canalave.
Best away ground: Dragon Stadium.
Manager's popularity out of 10: Eight.
Where will you finish: I hope we finish higher than 17th this season.
What would it take for fans to start filling the Estadio Municipal? The Púrpura just need to put a winning run together, and if we see the team is doing well, we'll flock.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - TWELFTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART I)


Once upon a time, in a far, far away kingdom called Valladares, sixteen of the best teams across the nation, already fed up of playing in amateur leagues and with brilliant players without right to international recognition, decided to play together and (with the VFA's blessing) the Valladar Super League was born, and the (until that moment) unknown valladar clubs started entering UICA competitions. Some time later, other four clubs were invited to join and then the young Super League was expanded to 20 teams, format that has lasted until today.

Since then, we have played eleven Super League seasons, with seven champions, and the twelfth season is just around the corner. According to the plan "100 Stadia for Valladares", created by the VFA with the aim of putting together a bid to host either a Baptism of Fire or a Cup of Harmony, stadia with less than 15,000 seats (with Parken Road in Carloburgo as a notable exception) will not be allowed to host Super League matches and that means many Super League teams will be forced to move to other stadia that meet the VFA criteria. Also, this season will mark the return of AS Montreux to the elite of valladar football, and Hamanos and Valencia will be looking for redemption after their vacation in the B-League. Let's start with our UICA review:

INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE:

It's true that our clubs did not shine as bright as they did last season in UICA competitions. However, we must applaud Bezieres' and Fontvielle Impact's qualification to the Round of 32 of the Globe Cup, and Valencia's Top 4 placing in the SBCC, anyways, let's start this summary with the TQCC:

TakilQuip Champions' Cup:

AS Bezieres: The road for the valladar champions started in the group stage, being the second valladar club to qualify to this stage in the competition after Fontvielle Impact (although the first to do so automatically). Les Rouges had to face Cafundelense powerhouses Petardos S/A, Mountbatten Junction from Ad'ihan and newcomers Croxby from Logria. Although the valladar champions defeated the Ad'ihani team twice, they only could drew with Croxby once, losing the other match at the Jules Picot, and lost twice against Petardos. The result: third place in Group C with 7 points and qualification to the Globe Cup first knockout round.

Fontvielle Impact: The Impact had a short road but with a traumatic end. Since they lost the Canalave Crown to their most hated rivals, they missed the chance to qualify to the group stage of the TQCC and had to start their road in the Non-Champions Path. Baskita FC from Pasarga lost to Les Bleus in the preliminary round with a 4-1 on aggregate score, however Dunboor FC from Cafundeu were a tough challenge for the winningest club in Valladares, and they practically certified the Impact's elimination from the TQCC with a 4-1 in Dunboor. A 1-0 loss in Metropolis was the end of the road for Fontvielle in this TQCC.

Globe Cup:

Tannenberg FC: Tannenberg were making their glorious return to the international stage after ending in fifth place last season. The Citizens' first and last rival in the Globe Cup were Cap Nordique from Cotdelapoms, and although Tannenberg's owner is Cotdelapomais, their fans were expecting to make it to at least the last preliminary round. The 2-0 victory at home made Tannenberg's fans and players arrive in high spirits to the second leg in Cotdelapoms. However, what they weren't expecting was a very dirty and unpleasant surprise courtesy of Cap Nordique at their home. Tannenberg lost the match 2-0, score that sent both teams to a penalty shootout in which Cap Nordique's players were more effective and made the Citizens pack their bags sooner than expected. Due to this, Oak Air's offices at Carloburgo Airport were vandalized by some Tannenberg ultras and relations between the new owners and the fans seem to go from bad to worse.

Nacional: Nacional's nomination to "New International Jesters" seems to be more than deserved after their embarrrassing performance in the last Globe Cup. Although they were facing a tough rival (County Stanley from Ad'ihan) in their eliminatory stage match, Nacional showed in the first leg why they were placed in fourth place at the end of the last Super League season, and with a 3-2 victory they gave the impression they could qualify for the next round. However, Nacional are now known because they erase with their elbow what they do with their hand, and lost 3-0 in Ad'ihan, being eliminated in the process.

Metropolis Alligators: The Alligators' starting line this time in the Globe Cup was the qualifying stage, where they had few problems to get rid of Liventian side Mountain FC. Eventually, the MA qualified to the group stage, being drawn in Group J with América from Cafundeu, Mercadel SC from Sargossa and Cotdelapomais champions Cosmopolitan. However, the Alligators' performance wasn't as good as the last time, losing to América twice, Mercadel defeated the MA once and even Cosmopolitan managed to snatch a draw from the National Stadium. All those lost points put the Alligators in third place with 7 points, thus eliminating them from the Globe Cup.

Fontvielle Impact: After losing to Dunboor FC in the TQCC, Les Bleus qualified to the group stage of the Globe Cup, being put in Group I along with Hatton Town, Valengren Kickers and Banks. The Impact defeated the Pocoans and West Zirconian twice and lost to the Ad'ihanis twice, thus way making it to the Round of 32. However, Sokojiwa Dosi CK ended Fontvielle's international campaign with two victories over the valladar runners-up (0-2 and 5-2).

AS Bezieres: Bezieres' road in the Globe Cup was short and not so magic like their first appearances. However, Sonoma Center Panthers left Les Rouges without international competition, defeating them twice. Maybe they can find some comfort in being eliminated by the eventual champions.

Chronowire Series B Champions' Cup:

Hamanos Athletic Club: The B-League champions started this competition from the playoff round, eliminating North Fork FC from the Babbage Islands with a clear 4-2 on aggregate score. However, the HAC's performance in the group stage was disastrous, and the team ended in fourth place in Group H, being eliminated from the competition.

Valencia FC: Valencia were the revelation this time in the SBCC, however their long road to the semifinal started in the playoff round, where they got rid with difficulty of Delaclav club Parakeet FC. However, the B-League runners up ended in first place of a difficult Group G, in which Los Violetas had to face tough rivals like Chorion Bluffs Knights, Blén CA and Olympique Protectorat. Against all odds, Valencia managed to assure a place between the best four teams of the SBCC, leaving Clube dos Banqueiros and Marx-Stadt out of contention, however, Bradwell Saints from Krytenia ended Valencia's successful history in the competition with a 1-1 draw in Valencia and a 2-1 victory in Krytenia.

AS Montreux: Montreux, who were competing in the SBCC after a long absence, started their road from the playoff round, as the third placed in the last B-League. Pardbo from Liventia were no match for Les Hérons, and Montreux made it to the group stage with relative ease. However, the fact of being playing a group stage in the SBCC for the first time ever was too much responsibility over this team, and two losses and three draws sentenced Montreux's fate in the SBCC.

RC Belfort: The Red-Blacks were making their return to an international competition after a long time, and we think they did more than they were expecting. The fourth place in the last B-League forced them to start from the preliminary round, where they had no problems to beat Oblast Rangers from Sorthern Northland. Belfort's victory in the playoff round against Universidad de Dénprade assured the presence of the four valladar representatives in the group stage of the SBCC, something unheard of until now. However, like the HAC and Montreux, Belfort crashed and ended in fourth place in their group and eliminated.

And now, we will present the 20 teams competing in this edition of the Super League:

(Key: Best three players in bold, foreigners in italics)

AD CERRO: Tavarello - Garcés, Brown, Tamayo, Cortés - Alvarado (C), Villarraga, Robson, Vargas - Riascos, Galletti
Full Name: Asociación Deportiva Cerro
Nickname (s): "Los Celestes" (The Sky Blue Men), "El Tigre" (The Tiger)
Stadium: Alexander I National Stadium, Swangard, District of Metropolis (Cap. 85,000)
Sponsor (s): Carvajal Motors
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt and black shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in blue
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Gerard Villeneuve
Director of Football: Alberto Salas
Coach: Gilbert Favrè
Last Season and Objectives: After having done their worst campaign since their promotion to the Super League (16th place), Cerro are back on stage. However, this will be the first season they will play in a different place to their stadium, the Miller Hoverberg, since it doesn't meet the VFA regulations for the next season, and therefore Cerro will have to play in the big National Stadium. After last season's fiasco, Cerro's main goal will be avoiding relegation, since the last campaign does not invite anyone to dream about a better placement.
Rivalries: Nacional, Metropolis Alligators, Marinos Metropolis.
Fans: Cerro's fanbase is passionate, despite being small. Their fanbase is too small compared to the ones of teams like Marinos and Metropolis Alligators, however, Cerro's fans are as noisy as them. Their mentality towards the team is not constant, and tends to change at any time: if Cerro wins, they want to worship even the cleaners of the team's headquarters, but if the team loses, they want to destroy everything.
Prediction: 15th. After a disastrous season, the pundits think Cerro won't have a competitive enough team to fight for the top spots and they think Cerro's fight will be at the relegation zone. They won't be relegated, though.

AJAX CARLOBURGO: Johnson - Russell, Monterrubio, Pereira, Castro - Rivas (C), Ortega, Ferreira - Rogers, Johansson-Bakvis, Palacios
Full Name: Football Club Ajax Carloburgo
Nickname (s): "The Red-Whites", "The Inmigrants"
Stadium: Parken Road, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 13,500)*
Sponsor (s): QuantaLith, Banco Latino
Home Kit: White shirt with a broad, vertical red stripe and white shorts
Away Kit: All navy blue with details in yellow
Third/GK Kit: All yellow with details in black
Chairman: Joseph Tacher
Director of Football: Gustavo Suárez
Coach: Anthony Clark
Last Season and Objectives: Ajax were about to be relegated the last season, however a 4-0 thrashing of Canalave Dragons saved them from relegation and gave them a nothing hopeful seventeenth place. Ajax's Board have stated they definitely want to get out of the relegation zone this time, and they've got the players to fulfill this goal. The only thing they need is luck...
Rivalries: Tannenberg FC
Fans: Despite being a small fanbase (thanks to the overwhelming support to Tannenberg FC), the few Ajax's fans are cheerful and enthusiastic. Most of them are wealthy people from Carloburgo and belong to the "High Society" of the city. Therefore, don't expect to see them destroying everything when the team is defeated or committing vandalism. Some of them are foreigners already established in the city, but they dislike vandalism as well. Ajax's fanbase can be considered as the "quietest fanbase in the Valladar Super League".
Prediction: 16th. The pundits think Ajax's history in the B-League is not over yet and despite the team will struggle at some moment in this upcoming season, they think the team will end in a decent 16th place.

* Home matches against Tannenberg, Alligators, Eterna and Marinos will be hosted at the Olympic Stadium (Cap. 62,000)

AS BEZIERES: Moore - Lores, Alzach, Rubiano, Rousseau - Lamont (C), Vercoutre, Hardy - Revault, Collazos, Uribe
Full Name: Association Sportive de Bezieres
Nickname (s): "Les Rouges" (The Reds), "Les Démons" (The Devils), "Le ASB" (The ASB)
Stadium: Stade Jules Picot, Bezieres, Foix (Cap. 38,000)
Sponsor (s): InterRail, Hydro-Foix
Home Kit: Red shirt and white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: Green shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Rèmy de Saint-Lorent
Director of Football: Luis da Lima
Coach: Yves Rexach
Last Season and Objectives: Two-times champions and defending Canalave Crown holders, Bezieres are back for their third title in a row. With the same squad that helped them get their second title the last season, the Board are sure this team will set a record in the Super League. It's more than obvious that Rèmy de Saint-Lorent wants his team to be better than those hateful Bleus from the nearby town.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact, Metropolis Alligators, Eterna Stars.
Fans: AS Bezieres have a strong fanbase in the city of Bezieres and its outskirts. Most of their fans are loyal to the team and do not tend to go nuts after a defeat. They do not tend to feel themselves provoked, and most of them are peaceful fans just wanting to cheer their team.
Prediction: 2nd. The pundits think that two titles in a row are enough for now. Besides, they will have to face tough opposition from the Alligators, from the Impact, from the Stars, the Citizens, etc. Therefore, our great pundits think Bezieres won't be able to retain their title.

AS MONTREUX: de la Rúa - Ramón, Márquez, Faurand, Chamoun (C) - Villanova, Dentinho, Luciano, Pereira, Alzate - Stevenson
Full Name: Association Sportive de Montreux Football Club
Nickname (s): "Les Hérons" (The Herons)
Stadium: Stade Micoud, Montreux, Foix (Cap. 15,200)
Sponsor (s): Le Nation
Home Kit: White shirt and red shorts
Away Kit: All red
Third/GK Kit: Blue shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Ernest Correa
Director of Football: Jean Allenan
Coach: Charles Molineaux
Last Season and Objectives: Les Hérons are back to the Super League after a long, long time after their third place in the B-League last season. And their Board is looking for a decent performance this time, and by "decent performance" we mean "escape from relegation". We're not sure if they will succeed at the end of the season...
Rivalries: AS Vaud, AS Bezieres, Fontvielle Impact, Olympique de Fontvielle, Gatineau UC 98
Fans: Few, silent and sometimes loyal. That phrase can perfectly describe Montreux's fans. No need to say more.
Prediction: 20th. The pundits don't think Montreux has got the level to stay in the Super League for more than a season, so they predict a quick relegation for those herons.

AS VAUD: Francis - Jones, Richardson, Velmont, Silvera - Ruiz, Díaz, Sandro (C), Ortega, Carrasso, Payet
Full Name: Association Sportive de Vaud-Gatineau
Nickname (s): "Les Étudiants" (The Students)
Stadium: Stade Omnisports Gatineau, Gatineau, Foix (Cap. 17,500)
Sponsor (s): ThermoClean
Home Kit: Blue shirt with black vertical stripes and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with blue vertical stripes and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Lucien Delmont
Director of Football: Fabrice Fevrier
Coach: Alberto Vega
Last Season and Objectives: Les Étudiants managed to escape from relegation and at the same time, reach a comfortable mid-table place, although they ended in fifteenth place. This Board thinks the team should be placed among the mid-table places this season, but if they're not ready...relegation is just about the corner.
Rivalries: Gatineau UC 98, AS Montreux, Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Vaud's fans tend to get mad at the referees when they when it's a fault favoring the opposing team or when they start to feel that the referee begins to "favour" the other team. They tend to fill the small Stade Mouilere to its full, even if the team is last in the standings. It can be concluded that they are loyal and passionate fans who do not tolerate anything against their team.
Prediction: 18th. Let's face it. We're already sick of seeing this mediocre team in the Super League, and the pundits are already sick of being always failing with their predictions. Hopefully this time (for God's sake) the pundits will be right and this team will be sent to their well-deserved vacation in the B-League.

CANALAVE DRAGONS: Vega (C) - Perea, Sánchez, Aljure, Lacombe - Carreño, Silva, Jones, McAllister - Thomas, Leclerc
Full Name: Canalave Dragons Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Dragons"
Stadium: Dragon Stadium, Canalave, Eterna (Cap. 35,000)
Sponsor (s): Mercantil Bank
Home Kit: Red shirt with white vertical stripes and red shorts
Away Kit: All blue
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Efraín Guzmán
Director of Football: George Smith
Coach: Manuel Ríos
Last Season and Objectives: After being struggling with relegation at some moments the last season, the Dragons managed to end in an uncomfortable twelfth place. Now the Board wants the "12" to be their lucky number this time and they want the team to return to the top places. It's time for the Dragons to react and return to be fighting for international berths.
Rivalries: Eterna Stars, Slateport Bulls, Nord Energie FC, Valencia FC
Fans: Canalave's fans are passionate and loyal. They consider themselves as the "12th player", due to their (sometimes extreme) fanatism. With their noise and their harangues against visiting teams, they are responsible for creating the worst possible environment for the visitors at the Dragon Stadium. Canalave's fans were considered the "most loyal fans" during the last editions of the Super League.
Prediction: 12th. No comments about this team. The pundits just think their best placement is the twelfth place (again).

CHIQUITO FC: Williams - Sinclair, Hortúa, Rosero, Cifuentes (C) - Castroneves, Gomes, Dickens - Barrera, Méndez, Torres
Full Name: Corporación Deportiva Chiquito Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Os Verdes" (The Green Men)
Stadium: Arena do Jacaré, Corumbá, Chiquito (Cap. 25,000)
Sponsor (s): AlfaCredit Bank
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in yellow and green shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in green and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Blue shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Nazário Salgado
Director of Football: Alexis Conte
Coach: Leandro Castronovo
Last Season and Objectives: The last season, Chiquito finished in a tenth place, as usual for them during recent seasons. However, since their home stadium was closed in order to build a new one, Chiquito will be playing their matches in a new field for them. The Board will be looking for turning that stadium into a fief for Chiquito, and that way assuring a best placement for the team. This time they want to fight for the AFI berth, but time will tell if they can endure the pressure.
Rivalries: SC Caimanes, AS Bezieres
Fans: Chiquito's fans are among the most passionate fans in the Super League. However, they tend to insult their own players if they feel the players are not showing any sacrifice in the game.
Prediction: 11th. The pundits don't think Chiquito has got the guts to be fighting in the top zone of the standings for an international berth, so they think the team will end in eleventh place.

ETERNA STARS: Mezaguez - Lannoy, Calheira, Palacios, Millers - Rivas, Reyes (C), Andrade, Torres - Mosquera, Londoño
Full Name: Eterna Stars Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Stars", "The Yellows"
Stadium: Alain Tramontin Stadium, Eterna City, Eterna (Cap. 55,000)
Sponsor (s): Bavaria Brewery, BetPlus
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Maurice Dufrasne
Director of Football: Joseph Lennon
Coach: Peter Holmes
Last Season and Objectives: And we have the brand-new King's Shield's title holders: the Stars. After finishing in sixth place and missing the last qualifying berth to the Globe Cup last season, the Stars could regain some revenue with their participation in the Cygnus Cup, where they were eliminated in the second round. The Stars will be looking for their second title in either the Super League or the King's Shield, and if they can get the Double, it'd be even better.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators, Tannenberg FC, Slateport Bulls, Canalave Dragons, Fontvielle Impact, AS Bezieres
Fans: Eterna Stars have an important fanbase widespread in the whole nation, but most of them are concentrated in Eterna City and its outskirts. They tend to be passionate, loyal, and aggressive and intolerant with other fans, specially with Metropolis Alligators', Tannenberg's, Slateport's, and Fontvielle's fans.
Prediction: 6th. If the "Stars" are unable to enter the Cygnus Cup through the King's Shield, they'll enter the Aeropag Football Invitational through the sixth place in the Super League, but the pundits say the Stars won't enter UICA competition the next season.

FONTVIELLE IMPACT: Lacombe - Lavoisier, Salazar, Millar, Demont - Perrin, Rouillard, Romero (C), Bársenas - Gignac, de Roux
Full Name: Impact de Fontvielle Football Club
Nickname (s): "Les Bleus" (The Blues), "The Impact"
Stadium: Stade de l'Amitié, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 25,000)
Sponsor (s): Tamount Group, Ville de Fontvielle Council
Home Kit: All blue
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Antoine Tamount
Director of Football: Alain Tamount
Coach: Guy Royal
Last Season and Objectives: An outstanding comeback in the last Clausura had a painful end for the Impact, who despite winning the Clausura, lost the Canalave Crown to their arch-rivals Bezieres and ended in second place. In their last season at the Stade de l'Amitié (the Impact will move to their new stadium for VSL 13), Fontvielle's main goal will be their fourth title. However, the competence with Bezieres and the Alligators will be tougher than ever this time.
Rivalries: AS Bezieres, Olympique de Fontvielle, Eterna Stars, Metropolis Alligators
Fans: Most of Fontvielle's fans work in Tamount factories, or worked for Tamount at some moment. Currently, they are specially concentrated in Fontvielle and its outskirts, Gatineau, Bezieres, and the French-speaking neighborhoods of Metropolis. They show unconditional love to the team and tend to be noisy, cheerful and optimistic, even if the team is at the bottom of the table. Although they can be unruly and rebellious, but that happens when fans of other teams provoke them.
Prediction: 3rd. Among the pundits' main candidates to win the title this season, the Impact seem to be the weakest team. So, that means: Bezieres and the Alligators for the Crown, and Les Bleus will have to settle for third place.

GATINEAU UC 98: Vidal - Valverde (C), Devaux, Bergeron, Vargas - Berson, González, Tabanou, Richelieu - Machado, Casanova
Full Name: Gatineau Union Club 98
Nickname (s): "Les Chevaliers d'Or" (The Golden Knights), "L'GUC" (The GUC)
Stadium: Stade Omnisports Gatineau, Gatineau, Foix (Cap. 17,500)
Sponsor (s): BetPlus, Ville de Gatineau Council
Home Kit: Ocher shirt with details in navy blue and ocher shorts
Away Kit: Navy blue shirt with details in ocher and navy blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All white
Chairman: Henri Louvion
Director of Football: Gilbert Mezaguez
Coach: Gregory Didot
Last Season and Objectives: Les Chevaliers d'Or managed to retain their Super League status with a deserved fourteenth place, sending Pradera to the B-League in the process. With their brand-new Cotdelapomais reinforcement, Anders Bergeron, Gatineau expect to jump higher in this season and if they can sneak into the top 10, it'll be better.
Rivalries: AS Vaud, Olympique de Fontvielle, AS Montreux
Fans: Gatineau have their own fanbase, they are few fans, but they will support their team no matter the circumstances...that's for sure. We're sure the Gatineau authorities will be in red alert when Gatineau and Vaud play against each other.
Prediction: 14th. Drama will be present in this season for Gatineau (once again), but the pundits think they will retain their Super League status for the next season.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - TWELFTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART II)


HAMANOS ATHLETIC CLUB: Garcés - Vergara, Lamoroux, Ruiz, Torrealba - Quintero, Douglas (C), Cortés, Garzón - Perea, Ramos
Full Name: Hamanos Town Athletic Club
Nickname (s): "The Orange", "The Dam's Boys", "The HAC"
Stadium: Estadio Gobernador Villa, Pradera, Antioquia (Cap. 23,500)
Sponsor (s): AlfaCredit Bank, BetPlus
Home Kit: All orange
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Paul Jackson
Manager: Carl Thompson
Coach: Gilles Urdinola
Some Facts about the Team: The B-League current champions had the most problems to find a new home for this season, as their stadium did not meet VFA criteria. Both Slateport's and Valencia's Mayoralities and teams closed their doors to the HAC and they could only reach an agreement with Pradera's Mayorality for the first half of the season. Leaving aside all those non-sporting events, the HAC's Board will be looking to stay in Super League, but the task seems to be hard.
Rivalries: Slateport Bulls, Valencia FC, Nord Energie FC
Fans: The HAC have a small fanbase, concentrated in Hamanos Town and its vicinity. They are rarely loyal to the team, since the Estadio Municipal is almost never filled with local fans. In each Hamanos' match at the Estadio Municipal there are maximum 3,500 local fans, proving the lack of support the team has, thanks to their poor campaigns.
Prediction: 19th. For the pundits, Hamanos haven't got the team to get out of the relegation zone, so they condemn the Orange to the nineteenth place.

MARINOS METROPOLIS: Sánchez - Umaña, Gutiérrez, Correa, Perea - Ricardinho, Acuña, Bourgault, Oliveira (C) - Patiño, Aguilar
Full Name: Club Deportivo Marinos de Metropolis
Nickname (s): "Los Marineros" (The Mariners), "El Cuarto Grande" (The Fourth Big Team), "Los Azul Celeste" (The Sky Blue Guys)
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): Valladar Broadcasting Corporation, AL Electronics
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt and black shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Luis Montes
Director of Football: Rodolfo Pérez
Coach: Thomas Russell
Last Season and Objectives: Marinos were the big disappointment in the last season, after they ended in ninth place. That placement, added to the PSC's invitation to Olympique de Fontvielle for the AFI to which Marinos qualified left the fans really angered. The Board were also bored with this, and therefore decided to look some foreign players that help them get a UICA berth for the next season. It seems the Mariners are fed up with failure.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators, Slateport Bulls, AD Cerro, Nacional, Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Marinos is the fourth most popular football team in Valladares, with a large fanbase. About 11% of Valladar population support the club, and their average gates for their home matches are the fourth highest in the Super League. Their fanbase is located mainly in Metropolis. Marinos' fans are considered one of the most passionate and loyal to their team in the Super League. They constantly tend to fight with Metropolis Alligators' and Slateport Bulls' fans, since their hostility towards them is big as well as Marinos' rivalry with both teams.
Prediction: 9th. Marinos completed seven seasons without winning anything, and the pundits think they won't win anything in this season, either.

METROPOLIS ALLIGATORS: Tom - García, Pereira, Abraham, Silva - Ospina, Botero, Gutiérrez, Macías (C) - Londoño, Koit
Full Name: Metropolis Alligators Football Club
Nickname (s): "Los Caimanes" (The Alligators), "Los Verdiazules" (The Green-Blues), "El Titán" (The Titan), "The MA"
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): UNE, UltraTeam, Hydro, V-Train, District Mayorality of Metropolis
Home Kit: Green shirt with blue sleeves and white shorts
Away Kit: White shirt and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All blue
Chairman: Olivier Bonilla
Director of Football: Elías Parra-León
Coach: Charles McMurdon
Last Season and Objectives: Once again, the Alligators had to bend their head to Bezieres and the Impact, after ending in a disappointing third place last season. This season, the Board will put all their effort in helping the MA win a title after nine seasons, since the fans following most popular team in the nation can't endure more failures.
Rivalries: Marinos Metropolis, Tannenberg FC, Eterna Stars, Fontvielle Impact, SC Caimanes, AD Cerro, Nacional, AS Bezieres
Fans: With a 14.3% of popularity, Metropolis Alligators is one of the most popular clubs in Valladares. Their fanbase is by far, the largest in the nation. The Alligators have fans in every city, town or village in Valladares. These fans are characterized for being noisy, loyal to the team, also, they protest when they see the team play poorly and they are not tolerant of opposing teams fans.
Prediction: 1st. The Alligators' campaigns always include a bad Apertura and a great Clausura, but this time, the pundits think that combination added to their players' quality may help the MA to get their coveted third title.

NACIONAL: Barrera - López, Russell, Martínez, Rueda - Vélez, Ruiz (C), Boisbriand, Lecompte - Renato, Márquez
Full Name: Club Nacional de Fútbol
Nickname (s): "La Academia" (The Academy), "Los Albos" (The Whites)
Stadium: Alexander I National Stadium, Swangard, District of Metropolis (Cap. 85,000)
Sponsor (s): BetPlus
Home Kit: All white
Away Kit: Red shirt and blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerardo Matallana
Director of Football: Peter Capwell
Coach: Harrison Villar
Last Season and Objectives: A fourth place the last season wasn't enough for this team's Board, and the early elimination in the Globe Cup increased the failure for Nacional. Therefore, the main objective this season will be the title, and we are sure Nacional will be among the candidates for the title.
Rivalries: AD Cerro, Metropolis Alligators, Marinos Metropolis
Fans: Nacional have a small fanbase, however, they are loyal to the team. In every Nacional's match at the Miller Hoverberg, there are 10,000 noisy fans cheering their team, no matter the rival.
Prediction: 4th. For this season, Nacional brought Cotdelapomais prospect René Boisbriand, with their goal being the title, however, the pundits say Nacional will end in fourth place once again.

NORD ENERGIE FC: Reeves - García, Smith, Cabrera, Edwards - Nicholls (C), Evans, Romero, Forrest - Gomes, Andrews
Full Name: Nord Energie Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Blood and Gold", "The Electric Boys"
Stadium: Frank Clair Stadium, Fauxham, Eterna (Cap. 15,500)
Sponsor (s): Energy Inc., Bavaria Brewery
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with red vertical strips and yellow shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerard Montana
Director of Football: Jacques Riegel
Coach: Gilles Cheyrou
Last Season and Objectives: Nord Energie ended in thirteenth place after being the whole last season in the middle of the standings. Nord Energie were another team that had to change their home stadium, as their little Municipal Stadium didn't meet VFA criteria and will move to Fauxham for this season. For this upcoming season, the Board wants the team to get away from the relegation zone, since they feel it's not much what this team can do.
Rivalries: Canalave Dragons, Eterna Stars
Fans: Nord Energie's fanbase is mostly formed with the former workers of Carrillo Canyon I, most of them live in the outskirts of Toril, a town located north of Eterna City. This small fanbase is not as noisy as other small teams' fanbases, and they tend to sit down and just watch the game. Their loyalty is questionable since Nord Energie do not tend to play with full stadium, except when Eterna, Tannenberg, Slateport and the MA come to Toril.
Prediction: 13th. Interestingly, the pundits agree with Nord Energie's Board this time, and they think Nord Energie will have enough fuel to end in thirteenth place.

OLYMPIQUE DE FONTVIELLE: Gavanon (C) - Carrasso, Govou, Velmont, Lacroix - Lopera, Montes, Puel, Santos - Filo, Simão
Full Name: Club Sportif Olympique de Fontvielle
Nickname (s): "Les Jaune et Bleu" (The Yellow-Blues), "Le OF" (The OF), "L'Express Jaune" (The Yellow Express)
Stadium: Stade de l'Amitié, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 25,000)
Sponsor (s): Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Valladares
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with details in blue and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red with details in white
Chairman: François Lemerre
Director of Football: Olivier Puel
Coach: Jean Camacho
Last Season and Objectives: The second team from Fontvielle ended in seventh place last season and the PSC surprised them with an invitation to the AFI one season in advance. This time, and pumped by the prizes given thanks to their participation in Aeropag, Olympique want to stay among the top places and get a Globe Cup berth again (if possible...) Time will tell if they survive the carnage for these qualifying places. Last time they didn't and had to settle for seventh place.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact, AS Vaud, AS Bezieres, Gatineau UC 98, AS Montreux
Fans: As the second team in the city, Olympique de Fontvielle have few fans. Few, but they have them. OF's fans are noisy, and like to cheer their team, and are becoming loyal to the team, since there are now more than 10,500 present fans in every Olympique's match at the Stade de l'Amitié.
Prediction: 7th. Olympique have proven to have a better team than Slateport and Marinos, but the pundits think they will be placed in seventh place once again (and will have to pray that the Stars win the King's Shield, because otherwise they may not return to Aeropag.)

SC CAIMANES: Ortega, Maicon, Jimenez, Kléver, Beltrán - Lucio, Tiago Neves, Rosero, Anthony - Araújo, Souza (C)
Full Name: Sport Club Caimanes
Nickname (s): "Os Jacarés" (The Alligators)
Stadium: Estádio Armando Bozzelli, Campo Grande, Chqiuito (Cap. 50,000)
Sponsor (s): MediCare
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in black and black shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Josué Pereira
Director of Football: Jose Luis Barreiro
Coach: Ricardo Gomes
Last Season and Objectives: For the second time in the last three seasons, Caimanes ended behind their arch-rivals Chiquito FC, in a disappointing eleventh place. It seems the Board is unable to do anything to get this team back to its old glory and it seems they will be happy with another mid-table finish.
Rivalries: Chiquito FC, Metropolis Alligators, Tannenberg FC, AS Bezieres, Marinos Metropolis, Slateport Bulls
Fans: SC Caimanes have a strong fanbase, concentrated in Campo Grande, Chiquito, and some neighbourhoods in Metropolis. These fans are passionate, and very hostile towards referees and rival teams' fans. They do not hesitate to make angry claims when the referee makes decisions that may potentially affect their team. Caimanes' fans also like to form brawls with other teams' fans in national roads, when they travel to see Caimanes' game in another city.
Prediction: 10th. Caimanes showed to have progressed during the last season. It seems the pundits trust in this team and they expect them to end inside the Top-10 this season.

SLATEPORT BULLS: García - Tamayo, Jones, Lennon (C), Suárez - Arribagé, López, Quintero, Velasco - Robichaud, Varga
Full Name: Slateport Bulls Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Bulls"
Stadium: Estadio de la Riviera, Slateport, Eterna (Cap. 40,000)
Sponsor (s): BullRade, MediCare, Hydro
Home Kit: Blue shirt with details in red and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Alexander Edwards
Director of Football: Charles Williams
Coach: Leonard Gillet
Last Season and Objectives: Eighth place the last season for the "Bulls", who missed the AFI berth by just one point. Obviously, their status as the "soon-to-be fourth Big team" is ancient history now, and Slateport's players, fans and Board are desperated to get the team back to what they were. Will they succeed? or will they fail once again?
Rivalries: Eterna Stars, Marinos Metropolis, SC Caimanes, Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg FC
Fans: Their fanbase is passionate and cheerful, based mainly in Slateport and its outskirts. They are always present at the Estadio de la Riviera, cheering their team with chants and harangues. Sometimes, they tend to provoke other teams' fans, specially Marinos' fans, with the idea of showing their hatred towards them. The rivalry between both fanbases is big, since both teams are trying to be considered as the "fourth Big team" in the nation.
Prediction: 8th. Slateport won't return to the Top-5 while Nacional, Bezieres, the Impact and even Olympique don't trip over, so that means the Bulls will end in eighth place again.

TANNENBERG FC: Triviño - Carvalho, Carlinhos, Martínez, Alex - Rosero, Phillips, Coleman, Peterson - Ruíz (C), Pérez
Full Name: Tannenberg Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Citizens", "The Black-Whites", "The Knights", "The TFC"
Stadium: White Meadow Arena, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 69,070)
Sponsor (s): Oak Air
Home Kit: Black shirt with white vertical strips and black shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in black and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: Black shirt with details in white and white shorts
Chairman: Gustavo Delima
Director of Football: Ulises Maldonado
Coach: Peter Selás
Last Season and Objectives: Despite the Citizens finished in fifth place the last season, the relation between the new owners and the fans started in the worst possible way, as the team's defeat in the Globe Cup to a Cotdelapomais team made some suspicions rise among the fans. This season, the team will be looking for the title. After seeing how they managed to end in fifth place, why not to challenge for an eventual second championship? Another minor objective (for the fans) will be getting the double (two victories) over Ajax...although that's another different history.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators, Eterna Stars, Slateport Bulls, AS Bezieres, Ajax Carloburgo
Fans: Tannenberg are one of the most popular teams in the nation, as 14.3% of the country's population support the club. Their fans are passionate, but they do not tend to feel themselves provoked by other teams' fans, like Bezieres' fans. Their love towards the team is demonstrated every week, as the Olympic Stadium is frecuently filled with 62,000 noisy local fans, cheering their team.
Prediction: 5th. The pundits think the TFC are good enough to end in fifth place, but not more than that.

VALENCIA FC: Sánchez - Perea, Villagra, Quiñonez, Vargas - Bernal, Rosero, Rouillard, Galeano (C) - Gaviria, Jaramillo
Full Name: Valencia Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Los Púrpura" (The Purple Boys)
Stadium: Estadio Municipal de Valencia, Valencia, Antioquia (Cap. 17,700)
Sponsor (s): Ferry Danubio
Home Kit: White shirt with purple sleeves and white shorts
Away Kit: Black shirt with purple horizontal stripes and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All yellow
Chairman: Gustavo Alzate
Manager: Alberto Lemus
Coach: Alexander Pereira
Last Season and Objectives: Valencia finished as runner-ups in the last B-League and did a superb job in the SBCC, reaching the semifinals. The "Púrpura" will be looking for assuring their presence in the Super League for another season more, and their performance in the last SBCC is enough to say they could stay in the Super League.
Rivalries: Hamanos Athletic Club, Slateport Bulls, Canalave Dragons
Fans: Valencia's inhabitants are divided in two groups: Valencia's fans and Cardenales' fans. As usual when there are two or more teams in the same city, both fanbases hate the other to death. Valencia's fans are the most fanatic fans in this city...almost all of them have painted their house purple, or have painted the houses of their rivals, showing their extreme fanatism.
Prediction: 17th. The pundits were surprised by Valencia's performance in the last SBCC, and they say Valencia's arguments for this season are strong and enough to save them from relegation. Therefore, they say this team will end in seventeenth place.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - TWELFTH SEASON (PART I OF IV)


Apertura Tournament

MD1:

It's the first day of this season, and the curtain rises for the twelfth season of the Valladar Super League. In the "Champions Opening Match" of the season, played this time between Bezieres and Hamanos, Les Rouges managed to defeat the B-League champions once more. Marinos got rid of Nord Energie without problems, Fontvielle Impact won over Gatineau, and Nacional managed to get three important points in Canalave. Valencia scared the Stars, who had more problems than expected to defeat the Púrpura, and the Alligators and Slateport were unable to win and had to settle for a draw in their respective matches. The shock in this day came from Carloburgo, where Vaud defeated Tannenberg.

AS Bezieres 3-0 Hamanos Athletic Club (Revault 38', Rousseau 66', Hardy 88')
Slateport Bulls 1-1 AS Montreux (Robichaud 68'; Stevenson 40')

Tannenberg FC 0-1 AS Vaud (Carrasso 52')


MD2:

With two victories in two matches, Fontvielle Impact, Vaud and Chiquito are leading the Apertura. The current King's Shield titleholders managed to defeat Marinos, while Vaud won the Derby du Gatineau and Chiquito defeated Tannenberg, who lost their second match in a row and second at home. Bezieres and Nacional were surprised by Montreux and Hamanos, and the Stars were thrashed by the Bulls in the Eterna Derby. The Alligators and Cerro won their first matches and four teams have not won a single point at the moment, with the Citizens being the only team with no goals scored after two matches.

AS Montreux 1-1 AS Bezieres (Luciano 33'; Uribe 42')
Nacional 0-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Perea 52' pen)

AS Vaud 1-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Payet 24')
Tannenberg FC 0-1 Chiquito FC (Dickens 44')


MD3:

Chiquito became the new leaders of the Apertura after their 1-0 victory in Gatineau and also became the only team with 3 victories in 3 matches. Slateport, Bezieres and the Impact escort the "Verdes" with 7 points, the "Bulls" and "Rouges" managed to win at home, but the Impact and Valencia starred the first scoreless draw in the season. The Alligators were surprised by Hamanos in Pradera, Montreux didn't allow the Stars to get their second victory and Tannenberg lost their third match in Fontvielle, thus entering into a crisis. Canalave Dragons and Gatineau are also with no points yet.

AS Bezieres 2-1 Nacional (Vercoutre 27', Collazos 55'; Márquez 77')
AS Montreux 2-2 Eterna Stars (Alzate 68', Pereira 84'; Andrade 36', Mosquera 51')
Hamanos Athletic Club 1-0 Metropolis Alligators (Ramos 66')
Slateport Bulls 2-1 Nord Energie FC (Quintero 33', Robichaud 68'; Gomes 24')

Olympique de Fontvielle 3-2 Tannenberg FC (Simão 35', Puel 53', Lopera 83'; Pérez 29', Ruiz 74')
Gatineau UC 98 0-1 Chiquito FC (Gomes 56')


MD4:

A thrilling 3-3 draw in Corumbá against Marinos costed Chiquito the first place in the Apertura, with the Impact returning to the first place with an important victory at home over Slateport Bulls. In other important matches, the Stars and Bezieres divided honors at the Alain Tramontin, while the Alligators put Nacional in crisis with their victory in the Metropolitan Derby. Recently promoted Hamanos are the surprise so far with three victories in a row that put them in fourth place with 9 points, only behind the Impact, Chiquito and Olympique. Meanwhile, Tannenberg weren't able to get their first victory in the Apertura and had to settle for a draw with Cerro and many boos from their own fans, and Gatineau were sank in last place without points.

Eterna Stars 1-1 AS Bezieres (Reyes 73'; Hardy 36')
Metropolis Alligators 2-1 Nacional (Koit 22', 80'; Boisbriand 42')
Nord Energie FC 2-0 AS Montreux (Romero 33', Forrest 45'+2')
SC Caimanes 1-2 Hamanos Athletic Club (Souza 49'; Douglas 17', Garzón 30')
Fontvielle Impact 2-1 Slateport Bulls (Bársenas 52', de Roux 86'; Robichaud 79')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-2 Canalave Dragons (Palacios 31'; Jones 43', Leclerc 76')
AS Vaud 0-0 Valencia FC
Tannenberg FC 1-1 AD Cerro (Ruiz 38'; Riascos 63')
Chiquito FC 3-3 Marinos Metropolis (Barrera 24', Castroneves 36', Torres 69'; Aguilar 18', Patiño 42', Acuña 55')
Gatineau UC 98 0-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Filo 25', Santos 57')


MD5:

Fontvielle Impact and Chiquito are still at the top of the standings with 13 points, after their away victories in Montreux and Valencia respectively. Olympique demolished Marinos at the Dome in order to stay as escorts of the leaders with 12 points and Vaud surprised the Bulls in Slateport. Bezieres and the Alligators starred a thrilling 2-2 draw in the most interesting match of the day, and the Stars suffered a painful loss to Nord Energie at home. A scoreless draw in Canalave doesn't help Tannenberg to get out of the last places, and Gatineau's fifth loss in the Apertura dooms them to the last place.

AS Bezieres 2-2 Metropolis Alligators (Revault 35', Lamont 58'; Londoño 26', Gutiérrez 77')
Eterna Stars 1-2 Nord Energie FC (Andrade 47'; Nicholls 18', Andrews 55')
Nacional 2-0 SC Caimanes (Boisbriand 28', Renato 77')

MD6:

The Impact are starting to increase the difference between them and their escorts with their 2-0 victory over Eterna Stars (who, with this defeat, are the newest adition to the "Crisis Club") at the Stade de l'Amitié. Despite letting Valencia leave Fontvielle with a draw, Olympique jumped to second place, helped by Chiquito's loss to Slateport Bulls in Corumbá. Four teams are left with 13 points: Olympique and surprise packages Chiquito, Vaud and Hamanos, who were the fourth team in the season to leave Carloburgo with at least a point, sinking Tannenberg in the penultimate place. Gatineau managed to rescue a point against the Dragons, however, it doesn't help them as they are still in last place.

MD7:

Fontvielle Impact remain as solid leaders with 19 points after they defeated Nord Energie in Fauxham. Since Bezieres lost their unbeaten streak against Caimanes, the Impact are now the only unbeaten team in the Apertura. Olympique and Chiquito escort the leaders with 16 points, after their victories at Slateport and Montreux. The Alligators are recovering positions and defeated Ajax, who are slowly falling to the red zone. The Stars and Tannenberg are two famous names among the last places in the standings, and have lost a lot of terrain in the first part of this Apetura.

MD8:

The Derby du Foix ended this time with a victory for the Impact, which is enough to keep them at the top of the standings for at least one more week. On the other hand, the defending champions lost their second match in a row, falling to the ninth place in the process. Olympique and Chiquito were unable to keep the Impact's pace, as the MA and Vaud get closer to the second place. Speaking of the Alligators, they managed to get a draw in Carloburgo against Tannenberg, leaving one of their most hated rivals in one of their worst crisis ever suffered. The Stars got a second wind after defeating Chiquito, while Gatineau's victory sends Tannenberg, Valencia and Montreux to the red zone.

Valencia FC 1-3 Canalave Dragons (Galeano 4'; Carreño 10', McAllister 53', Jones 78')


MD9:

Despite the Impact could only draw with Vaud, they are still leaders of the Apertura with 23 points. And Olympique, Chiquito, the Alligators, Vaud and Hamanos missed the chance to place themselves as second and reduce the difference with the Impact: the OF suffered a shattering defeat in Eterna City, Chiquito drew with Nord Energie and the MA and Hamanos allowed Gatineau and Valencia to get a point from their visits to Metropolis and Pradera. After nine matches, Tannenberg won their first match in the season, Marinos defeated Nacional and Bezieres are trying to recover from their last two defeats with a refreshing victory over Ajax.

Slateport Bulls 1-3 Canalave Dragons (Suárez 17'; Leclerc 32', Jones 55', Lacombe 84')


MD10:

After ten matches, we have Fontvielle Impact as solid leaders in this Apertura. Les Bleus are proving that their victory in the King's Shield was not a fluke and are the only unbeaten team in the Apertura so far. Behind the Impact we have Olympique de Fontvielle, Bezieres, Metropolis Alligators, Canalave Dragons and Chiquito FC, who will have to improve their current performance if they want to give chase to the leaders. Nacional, the Stars, Marinos and Tannenberg (who have won their second match in a row) are the big disappointments this season, while Gatineau, Valencia and Montreux are in the relegation zone at the moment...as some people had predicted.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - TWELFTH SEASON (PART II OF IV)


Apertura Tournament

MD11:

The Derby du Fontvielle, the most important match this week, ended with a thrilling 3-2 victory for the Impact that keeps them at the top with 29 points, eight points clear of Bezieres, who reached the second place with their victory over Tannenberg. The Alligators had to wait 53 minutes to clear the road against a brave Valencia, doomed to the last place with Montreux's victory over Hamanos. The Stars start climbing positions and Tannenberg are now two points clear of the relegation zone.

AS Bezieres 2-1 Tannenberg FC (Collazos 35', Lamont 77'; Pérez 40')
AS Vaud 1-1 Chiquito FC (Díaz 21'; Torres 83')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Ferreira 63')

AS Montreux 2-0 Hamanos Athletic Club (Dentinho 13', 65')


MD12:

Despite their draw against Cerro at the National Stadium, Fontvielle Impact are still as leaders in the Apertura, with 30 points. Their arch-rivals Bezieres escort the Impact with 24 points, while the Alligators and Olympique are trying to give chase to the leaders: the MA got an important victory in Slateport, while Olympique demolished Vaud. Eterna's reaction in the last matches was stopped by Hamanos, while Marinos, Nacional and Tannenberg try to recover from their crisis. Valencia's sixth draw in the season sent Gatineau to the last place.

Hamanos Athletic Club 0-0 Eterna Stars
AS Montreux 3-3 Nacional (Luciano 18', Villanova 36', Pereira 85'; Márquez 24', Lecompte 55', Ruiz 81')


MD13:

Although Bezieres and the Alligators won their respective matches at home, Fontvielle Impact also won at home, and are still in first place with 33 points and an unbeaten streak that has lasted for 13 matches. On the other hand, Valencia's loss to Ajax leaves the Púrpura as the only team with no victories after 13 matches in this Apertura. Nacional and Tannenberg got important victories against the Stars and Marinos, respectively, and Caimanes' defeat puts them closer to the relegation zone.

AS Bezieres 1-0 Gatineau UC 98 (Hardy 73')
Chiquito FC 3-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Barrera 11', Méndez 65', Torres 88'; Simão 50', Lacroix 90'+1')

Metropolis Alligators 3-1 AS Montreux (Gutiérrez 15', Ospina 53', Londoño 70'; Alzate 29')
Eterna Stars 0-2 Nacional (Renato 17', 68')


MD14:

Olympique and Bezieres played for the Impact, and cancelled themselves with a one-all draw in Fontvielle. Meanwhile, the Impact defeated Hamanos in Pradera, bringing Hamanos' unbeaten streak at home to an end and getting closer to the Apertura title and the first TQCC berth. The victory in the National Derby placed the Alligators in second place with 29 points, seven less than the leaders. Marinos and Tannenberg are still climbing positions and Nacional and the Stars don't seem to show signs of improvement.

Olympique de Fontvielle 1-1 AS Bezieres (Puel 37'; Collazos 14')
Marinos Metropolis 3-2 Gatineau UC 98 (Aguilar 38', Ricardinho 43', Correa 76'; Tabanou 28', Richelieu 82')

Hamanos Athletic Club 0-2 Fontvielle Impact (Romero 26', Perrin 68')

Nacional 0-2 Nord Energie FC (Forrest 16', Andrews 49')
Eterna Stars 1-2 Metropolis Alligators (Mosquera 71'; Ospina 25', Macías 43')


MD15:

After Fontvielle Impact's victory over a lackluster Nacional and Bezieres' and Alligators' respective losses against Marinos and Nord Energie, Les Bleus are on the verge of clinching the Apertura title and the first berth to the TQCC, with 39 points and 10 points clear of the second place, with four matches and 12 points left. The Alligators and Bezieres are with a little chance to win the Apertura, but they will have to win all their matches and wait for four defeats for the Impact. Tannenberg are doing an interesting comeback with four victories in a row. However, the Stars and Nacional are doing bad campaigns, while Chiquito and Hamanos are in freefall after their bright start.

AS Bezieres 0-1 Marinos Metropolis (Oliveira 79')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-1 AD Cerro (Puel 28'; Riascos 55')
Gatineau UC 98 1-0 Valencia FC (Casanova 46')
Chiquito FC 0-2 Canalave Dragons (Jones 21', Silva 84')
Tannenberg FC 1-0 Slateport Bulls (Ruiz 35' pen)
AS Vaud 1-0 Hamanos Athletic Club (Sandro 51')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-0 AS Montreux
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 Nacional (Perrin 56', de Roux 72')
SC Caimanes 1-1 Eterna Stars (Souza 43'; Londoño 29')
Nord Energie FC 2-0 Metropolis Alligators (Nicholls 18', Forrest 80')


MD16:

Metropolis Alligators wasted the most valuable chance they had to reduce the difference with the Impact, and instead they let Les Bleus to crown themselves as Apertura champions at the Dome, with a 0-3 victory. This, at the same time, made Bezieres' win over Cerro useless, as the Impact (42) are now 11 points clear of Les Rouges (31), with only 9 points left. In other news, Tannenberg's great comeback continues with a clear victory over Montreux, which places the Citizens in fifth place, and Eterna's and Nacional's terrible campaigns have these two teams on the verge of the relegation zone for the Clausura.

AD Cerro 1-2 AS Bezieres (Robson 53'; Vercoutre 24', Collazos 73')
Valencia FC 2-0 Marinos Metropolis (Galeano 27', Jaramillo 41')

Hamanos Athletic Club 1-1 Chiquito FC (Douglas 63'; Barrera 36')
AS Montreux 0-3 Tannenberg FC (Ruiz 18', Pérez 34', Peterson 74')
Nacional 0-2 AS Vaud (Ortega 35', Payet 88')

Nord Energie FC 1-4 SC Caimanes (Gomes 20'; Rosero 33', Beltrán 42', Araújo 66', Souza 88')


MD17:

Since Fontvielle Impact already won the Apertura title and the first TQCC berth, well...there's not much to say this week, except for the Impact's first loss in the season, Ajax's thrashing of Nord Energie, with a hat-trick (courtesy of Per-Olivier Johansson-Bakvis) included and Marinos' and Eterna's victories in their respective derbies against Slateport Bulls and Tannenberg.

AS Bezieres 2-1 Valencia FC (Hardy 38', Lamont 66'; Rouillard 86')
AD Cerro 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Galletti 42'; Leclerc 34')
Marinos Metropolis 2-0 Slateport Bulls (Acuña 35', Ricardinho 68')
Olympique de Fontvielle 0-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Perea 43')
Gatineau UC 98 0-1 AS Montreux (Luciano 65')
Chiquito FC 1-1 Nacional (Torres 47'; Renato 56')
Tannenberg FC 0-1 Eterna Stars (Reyes 39')
AS Vaud 1-0 Metropolis Alligators (Carrasso 83')

Fontvielle Impact 1-2 SC Caimanes (Rouillard 37'; Anthony 50', Souza 71')


MD18:

After winning the Apertura and the TQCC berth with three weeks to spare, it seems it's time for the Impact to lose some matches. This time, Ajax managed to leave Fontvielle with three valuable points that will help them in their fight against relegation. Bezieres, the Alligators, Slateport, Tannenberg and Marinos also won their matches, while the Stars allowed Gatineau to get a point at the Alain Tramontin.

Canalave Dragons 2-4 AS Bezieres (Thomas 17', Silva 39'; Lamont 28', Revault 42', 87', Vercoutre 74')
Slateport Bulls 3-0 Valencia FC (Velasco 13', Robichaud 44', Varga 68')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-1 AD Cerro (Villarraga 86')
AS Montreux 0-2 Marinos Metropolis (Aguilar 23', Bourgault 76')
Nacional 0-0 Olympique de Fontvielle
Eterna Stars 1-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Mosquera 38'; Richelieu 76')

SC Caimanes 0-0 AS Vaud
Fontvielle Impact 1-2 Ajax Carloburgo (Gignac 39'; Rogers 66', Palacios 81')


MD19:

And the end of the Apertura is here...among the most important results we had we can feature Slateport's win in Bezieres, Nacional won after five matches, the Apertura champions lost once again, the Chiquito Derby was for Chiquito this time, and Montreux, Gatineau and Valencia will be in serious problems with relegation for the Clausura after they finished as the bottom three in the Apertura.

AS Bezieres 2-3 Slateport Bulls (Hardy 17', Lamont 68'; Quintero 23', López 33', Varga 72')

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - TWELFTH SEASON (PART III OF IV)


Clausura Tournament

MD1:

Only five teams won their matches in the start of this Clausura: Bezieres, the Alligators, Ajax, Valencia and Nord Energie. The "Púrpura" and the "Blood and Gold" gave the major shocks in this week, as they defeated Eterna Stars and Marinos, respectively. The Apertura champions could only draw in their opener against the worst team in the season and Olympique and Nacional are still dragging their winless streaks.

Hamanos Athletic Club 0-2 AS Bezieres (Collazos 16', Revault 63')
AS Montreux 0-0 Slateport Bulls
Nacional 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Márquez 32' pen; Thomas 69')

MD2:

Bezieres got rid easily of Montreux in order to remain at the top of the standings in the Clausura, with 6 points. Nord Energie is the other side with perfect performance at this point, after their victory in Valencia. Fontvielle Impact recovered from the last shock and defeated Marinos in Metropolis, the Alligators and the Dragons divided honors in a thrilling match, Nacional and the Stars haven't shown any improvement in this Clausura and Marinos and Chiquito are the only sides with two defeats in two matches. As for the relegation zone, Valencia, Montreux and Gatineau are still far from Nacional and Caimanes and seem to be the "strongest candidates" to return to the B-League.

MD3:

The best match ever seen in the whole Valladar Super League history was held at the National Stadium in Metropolis. Two hat-tricks (one per team) and nine goals, but at the end, Nacional defeated Bezieres 5-4 and made them fall from the top of the standings. Nord Energie's loss to Slateport Bulls, and victories for both the MA and Olympique were enough to put both teams at the top with 7 points, with Bezieres, Nord Energie and Ajax escorting them with 6 points. Marinos got their first victory in this Clausura, as did the Stars, and Tannenberg's and Vaud's defeats tightened the fight for the last two Globe Cup spots and the AFI spot, with 5 teams fighting for 3 spots.

MD4:

Bezieres, Ajax and Nord Energie took advantage of MA's defeat and Olympique's draw, and returned to the first place in the Clausura with 9 points. Both teams from Fontvielle escort the leading trio with 8 points. The fight for UICA spots is becoming hotter and hotter, as Vaud and Tannenberg try to defend their Globe Cup spots against Olympique, Slateport and Ajax, who entered to the fight thanks to their campaign in this Clausura. Nacional try to regain positions with two victories in a row, and none of the teams in the relegation zone won a match this week, complicating their situation.

MD5:

Surprise, surprise...we've got a new (and surprising) leader: Ajax Carloburgo, who defeated Hamanos in order to reach the first place in the Clausura with 12 points. The "small" team from Carloburgo is escorted by the Impact and Olympique, with one point less than the leaders. Nacional are doing an impressive comeback and are now fourth in the Clausura, with the Alligators and Bezieres behind them. In the Overall Standings, Rouges and Alligators have a healthy advantage over Vaud and Tannenberg, who will have to fight against Olympique for the last UICA spot and the AFI berth. Meanwhile, in the red zone, Caimanes are seeing how their advantage slowly vanishes, as Valencia cut the difference between both teams from seven to four points.

MD6:

Ajax's reign in the Clausura didn't last long, as Nacional defeated the Inmigrants at the National Stadium and at the same time allowing both teams from Fontvielle (Impact and Olympique) to reach the first place. Nacional are third after this matchday, while Ajax fell to the fourth place. Tannenberg's victory over Hamanos and Vaud's draw in Montreux sent Les Étudiants to the AFI qualifying place and Olympique to the last UICA qualifying place, while things haven't changed in the relegation zone.

MD7:

Nacional are the new leaders in this Clausura with 16 points, thanks to their victory in Carloburgo over Tannenberg. Fontvielle Impact and Olympique slipped and allowed La Academia to reach the top. Bezieres demolished Caimanes and are still in hot pursuit of the leaders and their escorts. The battle between Olympique, Tannenberg and Vaud for the last Globe Cup spot is even hotter, with Olympique getting the UICA spot at the moment, while the Citizens are in the AFI qualifying place.

MD8:

Nacional are still in the lead, after winning their sixth match in a row. Gatineau was the latest victim for Los Albos, who are leading with 19 points, three points clear of both teams from Fontvielle. Bezieres are fourth and Metropolis Alligators, who drew against Tannenberg in an interesting match, are fifth. The Derby du Foix wasn't what we were expecting and Bezieres and the Impact drew nil-nil. Olympique, Tannenberg and Vaud are now pressed by Slateport and Valencia continues to reduce the difference with Caimanes, which is now in five points. Things in the relegation zone get interesting...

MD9:

Things don't seem to have changed after this matchday. Nacional confirmed their first place with a victory in the Metropolitan Derby over Marinos, who seem to have entered into a crisis. Fontvielle Impact and Olympique de Fontvielle escort Nacional after their victories over Vaud and Eterna Stars, respectively and Bezieres and the Alligators are trying to keep up with the leaders' pace. With their valuable victory in Canalave, the Bulls enter into the fight for the international zone, and Caimanes increases the difference with Valencia from five points to six points.

MD10:

After 10 matches in this Clausura and a bad start, Nacional are leading with 25 points, with one of the best offensives in the Clausura with 25 goals and with eight victories in a row. Olympique de Fontvielle and the Apertura champions, Fontvielle Impact are next with 22 points, being the only unbeaten teams remaining in the Clausura. Olympique are also fighting in the "international competitions" front, as they currently hold the last Globe Cup berth. Tannenberg and Slateport are also involved in that fight, which promises to be one of the tightest fights for UICA berths ever held. As for the relegation zone, Caimanes (29) are still six points ahead of Valencia (23), and Gatineau and Montreux are close to pack up their bags and return to the B-League.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - TWELFTH SEASON (PART IV OF IV)


Clausura Tournament

MD11:

Nacional are still at the top of this Clausura after their refreshing victory in Slateport over the Bulls. Los Albos have got 28 points and seem to be closer to return to the TQCC. Fontvielle Impact ended Olympique's unbeaten streak in the Clausura with a clear 3-0 over Les Jaune et Bleu in the Derby du Fontvielle, and escorts Nacional with 25 points. The fight for the last Globe Cup spot and the AFI one is now between three teams: Olympique, Tannenberg and Slateport, but none of these teams managed to win their respective matches (Tannenberg drew with Bezieres at home). Caimanes got an important draw at the Dome and are still increasing the difference with Valencia, who were thrashed by the MA and now are trailing Caimanes by 7 points.

Tannenberg FC 1-1 AS Bezieres (Pérez 54'; Lamont 37')
Chiquito FC 1-1 AS Vaud (Barrera 38'; Ortega 72')

Slateport Bulls 0-2 Nacional (Boisbriand 17', Márquez 61')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-1 AS Montreux (Stevenson 39')


MD12:

Nacional won their tenth match in this Clausura and tenth in a row, in order to continue as leaders of this Clausura with 31 points. Fontvielle Impact were unable to defeat Cerro at their home and allowed Nacional to increase the difference with the Apertura champions. Bezieres are close to assure their presence in UICA competitions the next season while Olympique and Tannenberg are involved in an interesting two-teams race for the last two international berths this season. Valencia got an important victory over their direct rival Caimanes and still have hopes of escaping relegation. Gatineau and Montreux: lost cause.

AS Bezieres 1-0 Chiquito FC (Hardy 35')
Tannenberg FC 2-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Pérez 5', Ruiz 43'; Machado 73')
AS Vaud 1-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Payet 32'; Santos 63', Filo 79')

Eterna Stars 1-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Mosquera 14'; Perea 65')
Nacional 4-0 AS Montreux (Lecompte 34', Renato 43', Márquez 62', Boisbriand 75')


MD13:

This matchday was the perfect one for away teams: in ten matches, six teams won out of their respective stadia. The leaders Nacional were the only home team that won in this matchday, with a great 2-1 victory over the demoralized Eterna Stars. The Apertura champions, Fontvielle Impact, are second, trailing by five points. Bezieres and the Alligators are close to clinch their tickets to take part in the next Globe Cup, while Tannenberg took advantage of Olympique's loss to Chiquito and jumped to the fifth place, sending the second team from Fontvielle to the sixth place. No changes in the relegation zone this time.

Gatineau UC 98 2-2 AS Bezieres (González 15', Machado 86'; Revault 24', Uribe 35')
Olympique de Fontvielle 0-2 Chiquito FC (Barrera 37', Dickens 49')

Nacional 2-1 Eterna Stars (Lecompte 13', Boisbriand 83'; Mosquera 50')


MD14:

With their victory in Fauxham over Nord Energie, Nacional are closer to the Clausura title and the last TQCC berth, with 37 points and twelve victories in a row. However, Fontvielle Impact don't wish to give up, as their victory over Hamanos gives them 32 points and a small chance to win the Clausura and the season without a Canalave Crown match. Bezieres and the Alligators took a giant step in their goal of qualifying to the next Globe Cup with their victories over Olympique and Eterna Stars, while Slateport regains chances of qualifying to the same competition despite their draw at Parken Road. Hamanos "entered" into the fight against relegation, while Caimanes and Valencia try to save themselves. Montreux could become the first relegated team of the season if they don't defeat Ajax next week.

AS Bezieres 2-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Collazos 22', Revault 77'; Simão 81')

SC Caimanes 1-0 AS Montreux (Souza 33')
Nord Energie FC 0-1 Nacional (Renato 71')
Metropolis Alligators 2-1 Eterna Stars (Botero 28', Ospina 66'; Reyes 38')


MD15:

The Clausura gets interesting after Fontvielle Impact's victory over the super-leaders Nacional, which was enough to cut the difference between the first and second placed from five points to just two points. Nacional lost their unbeaten streak of 12 matches, while the Impact increased theirs to 15 matches. Bezieres will return to the Globe Cup, and the Alligators were surprised by Nord Energie at home, and will need one more victory in order to assure their qualification to the same competition. Tannenberg, Olympique and Slateport drew their matches, increasing the suspense in the fight for the last two qualifying spots to the Globe Cup. Montreux were relegated in a matchday full of draws, and Caimanes, Hamanos and Valencia are still trying to escape from the red zone.

Marinos Metropolis 2-1 AS Bezieres (Bourgault 23', Acuña 75'; Vercoutre 51')

Metropolis Alligators 1-2 Nord Energie FC (Koit 37'; Andrews 52', Romero 83')


MD16:

The head-to-head between Nacional and Fontvielle Impact is coming to an end, as both teams won their respective matches and will be fighting for the title in the next three matches. Despite the Alligators lost to the Impact, they secured their presence in the next Globe Cup with three matches to spare. Tannenberg are starting to clear the road in order to join Bezieres and the MA in the next Globe Cup, while Slateport took advantage of Olympique's harsh defeat to snatch the sixth place from them. Gatineau were relegated after losing to the Bulls, and Caimanes, Hamanos and Valencia will define the last relegated team of the season.

AS Bezieres 2-3 AD Cerro (Uribe 38', Hardy 72'; Galletti 35', Robson 66', Vargas 82')

Fontvielle Impact 2-1 Metropolis Alligators (Gignac 26', Romero 54'; Londoño 82')
SC Caimanes 0-1 Nord Energie FC (Evans 73')


MD17:

This tight head-to-head between Albos and Bleus continues. With two matches remaining, Nacional are two points clear of Fontvielle Impact and this situation seems to remain until the final day of the Clausura. With both teams plus Bezieres and the Alligators already safe in UICA places, the fight is now for the third and final spot to the Globe Cup, currently being held by Tannenberg. However, Olympique de Fontvielle (who currently hold the AFI spot) and Slateport Bulls are still exerting pressure over the "Citizens", with both teams trying to return to the international stage. In the lower part of the standings, Caimanes, Hamanos and Valencia are still fighting against relegation. Only one of them will join Gatineau and Montreux in the B-League next season. Who will be the "lucky" one?

Valencia FC 0-3 AS Bezieres (Revault 39', Lamont 76', Hardy 90'+2')
Canalave Dragons 1-1 AD Cerro (Leclerc 26'; Galletti 83')

SC Caimanes 0-5 Fontvielle Impact (Perrin 5', Demont 14', Gignac 23', Bársenas 56', de Roux 80')


MD18:

It seems like everything will be defined after the last matchday of this Clausura. Nacional and Fontvielle Impact will fight for the Clausura title and the last TQCC berth, Slateport (now fifth in the Overall Standings), Tannenberg and Olympique will fight for the last two "international berths", and Caimanes, Hamanos and Valencia (who are close to return to the B-League) will have to play for their survival in the top flight of valladar football. In other matches, Jose Miguel Uribe scored his third hat-trick in the season in Bezieres' thrashing of Canalave Dragons, and the MA defeated Chiquito.

AS Bezieres 5-1 Canalave Dragons (Hardy 19', 42', Uribe 33', 73', 81'; Thomas 38')
Valencia FC 1-2 Slateport Bulls (Rouillard 37'; Arribagé 54', Robichaud 78')
AD Cerro 0-0 Hamanos Athletic Club
Marinos Metropolis 1-1 AS Montreux (Aguilar 80'; Dentinho 46')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-2 Nacional (Filo 48'; Boisbriand 21', Renato 85')
Gatineau UC 98 0-0 Eterna Stars
Chiquito FC 0-2 Metropolis Alligators (Koit 38', Gutiérrez 77')
Tannenberg FC 1-2 Nord Energie FC (Peterson 39'; Romero 71', Andrews 90'+1')
AS Vaud 2-1 SC Caimanes (Carrasso 17', Payet 57'; Araújo 83')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-4 Fontvielle Impact (Palacios 38'; Gignac 25', 44', de Roux 77', 83')


MD19:

Some matches of no importance at all, all of them played on Saturday evening...

Eterna Stars 4-0 Marinos Metropolis (Mosquera 5', Torres 36', Londoño 68', Andrade 88')
Nord Energie FC 1-1 Gatineau UC 98 (Nicholls 66'; Casanova 37')
Ajax Carloburgo 8-0 AS Vaud (Palacios 2', 41', Rivas 16', 79', Johansson-Bakvis 26', 44', Ortega 55', Rogers 87')


And the final day has come, with seven interesting matches:

Slateport Bulls 0-1 AS Bezieres (Revault 55')
Hamanos Athletic Club 2-1 Canalave Dragons (Douglas 22', Quintero 83'; Leclerc 38')
AS Montreux 0-1 Valencia FC (Jaramillo 78')
Nacional 3-1 AD Cerro (Renato 33', Lecompte 57', Márquez 86'; Riascos 37')
Metropolis Alligators 2-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Londoño 38', Botero 77'; Simão 18')
SC Caimanes 0-1 Chiquito FC (Dickens 84')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 Tannenberg FC (de Roux 49', Gignac 87')


Nacional just needed a victory against Cerro to claim the Clausura title and the TQCC berth. Also, they will play Fontvielle Impact in the Canalave Crown. Despite losing to Bezieres, Slateport Bulls qualified to the Globe Cup thanks to Tannenberg's and Olympique's defeats. The Citizens will have to settle for a trip to Aeropag, while the OF were left with nothing. Also, Valencia were relegated despite winning in Montreux. Hamanos' victory over Canalave Dragons doomed the "Púrpura" and Caimanes were saved form relegation thanks to their goal difference. And, here are the standings:

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - THIRTEENTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART I)


Still with memories of Nacional winning their second national title fresh in mind, the Valladar Super League starts its thirteenth season. This time, it is more difficult than ever to choose a favorite to win this season, as we have a lot of strong teams and others who will want to register their names in the books of glory. With Nacional as defending champions, the "Big 3" (Metropolis Alligators, Tannenberg FC and Eterna Stars), Fontvielle Impact and AS Bezieres as strong contenders for the title, Slateport Bulls and Olympique de Fontvielle ready to fight for their first title ever and Pradera, Tallin and Pumas looking for staying more than one season in the highest tier of valladar football, the Super League rises the curtain once again.

INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE:

Metropolis Alligators reaching the Globe Cup 24 Round of 16 and the fourth place achieved by Tannenberg FC in the Aeropag Football Invitational were the highlights of a season in which our clubs left much to be desired. Bezieres and Nacional did uninspiring performances in their respective competitions, Slateport Bulls were brave, but it wasn't enough and Fontvielle Impact's squad was "roasted" by the fact of competing in three competitions at almost the same time. Not to mention the fiasco starred by the valladar teams in the SBCC, in which Lierravus Rovers (yes, they are the same Lierravus AC) were the only ones who tried to save the country, failing miserably. We really missed last season's Valencia...

On a side note, the Metropolis Dome was chosen as the venue for the Globe Cup final match, which was won by Avidia United from Krytenia, who defeated Mort Park from West Zirconia on penalty kicks. Congratulations to the Dome on their successful bid to host the final match of the second most important UICA tournament. Anyways, let's start this international roundup with the TQCC:

TakilQuip Champions' Cup:

Nacional: The new "international jesters" were the second valladar champions with direct access to the group stages of the TQCC, being drawn in a tough Group A, with Paripanan powerhouses Yuba United, Carter FC from Jasiyun and Iskara Daii from Starblaydia. Despite this group was very even, we cannot say the same thing about what Nacional showed in this competition: Los Albos won a match and later they went on to lose two matches. A 5-0 over Yuba United at the National Stadium was the best thing they did in this TQCC, as this result did not help them make it to at least the Globe Cup. Fourth place with 7 points and eliminated.

Fontvielle Impact: The Impact's road in this TQCC was as bittersweet as the last one was. Despite the 2-0 loss to Ousevale Borough in Krytenia, the valladar runner-ups managed to get rid of their rivals with a 3-0 victory in extra time in the opening match of their new stadium. However, Noka Mariners from Jasiyun proved to be far stronger than them in the playoff round, sending the Bleus to the Globe Cup with a heart-breaking 1-0 victory over the Impact in Fontvielle.

Globe Cup:

Slateport Bulls: If you were looking for some brave performances from valladar sides in the last UICA season, then you have to look for the Bulls. Kerician side Schroeppel were no rivals for them in the Preliminary Stage of the Globe Cup, with Slateport getting two victories that sent them through to the Eliminatory Stage. Metro Tirana, from Delaclava, were a tougher rival than what Slateport expected, as they managed to get a scoreless draw from the Estadio de la Riviera and made the Bulls come twice from behind in their second match in Delaclava. Eventually, the away goals rule gave the Bulls the ticket to the last qualifying round, the Qualifying Stage, in which the Bulls faced Bradley Hornets from West Zirconia. A 3-3 draw in Slateport and a 3-1 loss away were enough to finish Slateport Bulls' participation in the Globe Cup.

Metropolis Alligators: The best valladar club in UICA competitions had to start their Globe Cup campaign in the Eliminatory Stage. Indiargash Hedgehog from Kazzoria and Wexwick from Unitopolis were the rivals the Alligators had to beat in order to make it to the group stage, in which they were drawn in Group L, with Dunboor FC from Cafundeu, Decraa United from Mytannion and Napoliroma Legion from Tarrentum. The National Stadium was turned into a tough stadium for visiting teams, and Dunboor were the only ones who could score at least a goal against the MA and defeat them. Eventually, ten points qualified the Alligators to the knockout stages, in which they upset Cygnus Cup titleholders Ibini FC before losing to their nemesis Dunboor FC in the Round of 16.

AS Bezieres: Les Rouges were the ones who disappointed the most in this UICA cycle, as they were drawn against Woodstock Wild from Sarzonia in the Globe Cup's Qualifying Stage. Eventually, the Sarzonians gave the shock and left Bezieres without international competition after defeating them 5-3 in Sarzonia and losing 3-2 at the Jules Picot. This season they were deservedly awarded the Wooden Spoon Award to the worst valladar team in the UICA competitions of the season, thanks to their failure in the Globe Cup.

Fontvielle Impact: The loss to Noka Mariners in the playoff round of the TQCC gave Fontvielle Impact a place between the 48 teams that were scheduled to play in the group stages of the Globe Cup. The Impact were placed in Group C, with Sokojiwa Dosi CK, Mapabore Juventud from Aguazul (grrr...) and Club ESF from Valanora. Fontvielle's four points in this group came thanks to a victory in Valanora and a draw against the Vanorians in Fontvielle, results that were not enough to qualify the Impact to the knockout stages.

Chronowire Series B Champions' Cup:

Pradera FC: The B-League champions had only two matches to show their true potential, as they were drawn against Varzeano from Cafundeu in the playoff round. A 2-2 draw in Pradera was not enough as their rivals had already scored five goals in Cafundeu which helped to kick the B-League champions out of the tournament.

AC Tallin: The Southern Gunners were just like their rivals in Pradera: they only had the chance to play two matches in the SBCC. Caledon Simpson from Krytenia were their rivals in the playoff round, and although Tallin managed to get a great 2-2 draw in Krytenia, the 0-1 loss in the second leg played at Parken Road certified their elimination.

Pumas Maldonado: Pumas also had just two matches in the SBCC, but the way how they were eliminated turned out to be more painful than the others. Oakley from Delaclava only needed to score a goal at the Estádio do Maldonado in order to eliminate the Pumas on away goals, as their first match in Delaclava ended nil-nil.

Lierravus Rovers: The Rovers, who changed their name from Lierravus AC few days before the start of the tournament, started their participation in the preliminary round, eliminating Port Lodgertia from Eastfield Lodge after two tense matches. They qualified to the group stage thanks to a goal scored in Jasiyun against Eintracht Maastricht, but the fourth valladar team in the SBCC crashed in the group stage, and were in fourth place, with 4 points and eliminated.

And now, we will present the 20 teams competing in this edition of the Super League:

(Key: Best three players in bold, foreigners in italics)

AC TALLIN: Phillips - Carrero, Andersen, McGaven, Russell (C) - Girard, Rosero, Sierra, Pereira - Aldemar, Galtier
Full Name: Association Club Tallin Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Southern Gunners", "The White-Reds"
Stadium: Parken Road, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 13,500)
Sponsor (s): Carvajal Motors (Automobile manufacturer)
Home Kit: White shirt with details in red and red shorts
Away Kit: Black shirt with details in white and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All white
Chairman: George Bradley
Director of Football: Samuel Carrera
Coach: Gonzalo García
Last Season and Objectives: After their relegation two seasons ago, Tallin managed to end as runner-ups last season in the B-League, therefore returning to the Super League. Although their budget is limited (it has always been so), Tallin's Board have high expectations and want to escape from the relegation zone this time and stay more than one season in the Super League. However, it seems their success will depend on Aldemar's effort.
Rivalries: Tannenberg FC and Ajax Carloburgo (Carloburgo Derby), Pradera FC (Meadow Derby)
Fans: Since TFC's fans are almost the 90% of Carloburgo population, AC Tallin fans are few but cheerful and noisy. Despite this team's constant failures, they still have the hope of seeing their tiny team making something big.
Main Supporters Groups: "Parken Gunners" (937 members), "Red Carloburgo" (684 members)
Prediction: 19th. Tallin return to the Super League as runner-ups in the last B-League season, and despite their Board have high expectations this season, the pundits do not think the same thing. Instead, they say the "Southern Gunners" will end in penultimate place, returning to the B-League in the process.

AD CERRO: Tavarello - Garcés, Brown, Tamayo, Cortés - Alvarado (C), Villarraga, Robson, Vargas - Riascos, Galletti
Full Name: Asociación Deportiva Cerro
Nickname (s): "Los Celestes" (The Sky Blues), "El Tigre" (The Tiger)
Stadium: Alexander I National Stadium, Swangard, District of Metropolis (Cap. 85,000)
Sponsor (s): Carvajal Motors (Automobile manufacturer)
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt and black shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in blue
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Gerard Villeneuve
Director of Football: Alberto Salas
Coach: Gilbert Favrè
Last Season and Objectives: A twelfth place last season was a balm for a team that came from having their worst season in the Super League. For this season, with relegation fears a bit dissipated, the "Celestes" will focus their attention on the Top-10 of the league. Both the Board and players will consider the season as a success if the team manages to get in the way of any of the favorites to win this season.
Rivalries: Nacional, Metropolis Alligators, Marinos Metropolis (Little Metropolitan Derby)
Fans: Cerro's fanbase is passionate, despite being small. Their fanbase is too small compared to the ones of teams like Marinos and Metropolis Alligators, however, Cerro's fans are as noisy as them. Their mentality towards the team is not constant, and tends to change at any time: if Cerro wins, they want to worship even the cleaners of the team's headquarters, but if the team loses, they want to destroy everything.
Main Supporters Groups: "Los Tigres del Sur" ("The Southern Tigers" - 1,323 members), "Amenaza Celeste" ("Sky-Blue Menace" - 982 members)
Prediction: 13th. A team with constant up and downs does not deserve a Top-10 place, according to the pundits. Despite the Board's best wishes and hopes, they say this team will end in the 13th place.

AJAX CARLOBURGO: Johnson - Russell, Monterrubio, Pereira, Castro - Rivas (C), Ortega, Ferreira - Rogers, Johansson-Bakvis, Palacios
Full Name: Football Club Ajax Carloburgo
Nickname (s): "The Red-Whites", "The Inmigrants"
Stadium: Parken Road, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 13,500)
Sponsor (s): QuantaLith (Aerospace), Banco Latino (Financial services)
Home Kit: White shirt with a broad, vertical red stripe and white shorts
Away Kit: All indigo blue with details in yellow
Third/GK Kit: All yellow with details in black
Chairman: Joseph Tacher
Director of Football: Gustavo Suárez
Coach: Anthony Clark
Last Season and Objectives: The Inmigrants' respectable Clausura helped them end in a decent thirteenth place last season, after being two seasons struggling in the relegation zone. This finish has pleased the QuantaLith Board, who sponsor the team, and expect a higher step for this season. A Top-10 place and a "double" against Tannenberg FC would be enough for this young team in this upcoming season.
Rivalries: Tannenberg FC, AC Tallin (Carloburgo Derby)
Fans: Despite being a small fanbase (thanks to the overwhelming support to Tannenberg FC), the few Ajax's fans are cheerful and enthusiastic. Most of them are wealthy people from Carloburgo and belong to the "High Society" of the city. Therefore, don't expect to see them destroying everything when the team is defeated or committing vandalism. Some of them are foreigners already established in the city, but they dislike vandalism as well. Ajax's fanbase can be considered as the "quietest fanbase in the Valladar Super League".
Main Supporters Groups: "The Foreigners" (633 members), "A-Sector" (402 members)
Prediction: 12th. Ajax Carloburgo have proven their worth in this Super League and an eventual relegation would be unfair for the pundits, therefore they want the Red-Whites to end in a twelfth place.

AS BEZIERES: Moore - Lores, Alzach, Rubiano, Rousseau - Lamont (C), Vercoutre, Hardy - Revault, Collazos, Uribe
Full Name: Association Sportive de Bezieres
Nickname (s): "Les Rouges" (The Reds), "Les Démons" (The Devils), "Le ASB" (The ASB), "Les Aigles" ("The Eagles")
Stadium: Stade Jules Picot, Bezieres, Foix (Cap. 38,000)
Sponsor (s): Hydro-Foix (Electric utilities)
Home Kit: Red shirt and white shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in ocher
Third/GK Kit: All indigo blue with details in ocher
Chairman: Rèmy de Saint-Lorent
Director of Football: Luis da Lima
Coach: Yves Rexach
Last Season and Objectives: Bezieres come from a disappointing third place last season and a disappointing early elimination in the Globe Cup (i.e., two failures in a row), competitions in which the team was expected to do a better performance. Les Rouges have set their third title as their goal for this season, and with those good players they have, there's no way someone could remove them from the list of favorites.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact (Derby du Foix), Metropolis Alligators
Fans: AS Bezieres have a strong fanbase in the city of Bezieres and its outskirts. Most of their fans are loyal to the team and do not tend to go nuts after a defeat. They do not tend to feel themselves provoked, and most of them are peaceful fans just wanting to cheer their team.
Main Supporters Groups: "Le Chaudron Rouge" ("The Red Cauldron" - 2,736 members), "Démons du Nord" ("North Devils" - 2,192 members)
Prediction: 1st. For the pundits, the fight for the title will be between four teams: Bezieres, Fontvielle Impact, Metropolis Alligators and Nacional. Due to quality of players and regularity in performance, their favorite to win the title is Bezieres.

AS VAUD: Francis - Jones, Richardson, Velmont, Silvera - Ruiz, Díaz, Sandro (C), Ortega - Carrasso, Payet
Full Name: Association Sportive de Vaud-Gatineau
Nickname (s): "Les Étudiants" (The Students)
Stadium: Stade Omnisports Gatineau, Gatineau, Foix (Cap. 17,500)
Sponsor (s): ThermoClean (Thermal power)
Home Kit: Blue shirt with black vertical stripes and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with blue vertical stripes and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Lucien Delmont
Director of Football: Fabrice Fevrier
Coach: Alberto Vega
Last Season and Objectives: Vaud come from a promising eleventh place last season, in which they even were several weeks fighting for the Apertura title. This team's Board is confident and want to repeat such a performance and confirm themselves as one of the wildcards for the next season.
Rivalries: Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Vaud's fans tend to get mad at the referees when they when it's a fault favoring the opposing team or when they start to feel that the referee begins to "favour" the other team. They tend to fill the small Stade Mouilere to its full, even if the team is last in the standings. It can be concluded that they are loyal and passionate fans who do not tolerate anything against their team.
Main Supporters Groups: "Les Élèves-Unis" ("United Students" - 983 members), "Ultras Vaud" (511 members)
Prediction: 11th. Vaud's progress has made the pundits consider about their predictions for this team. It seems they have finally recognized that "Les Étudiants" have become a wildcard in the Super League, and therefore, they say Vaud could end near the Top-10.

CANALAVE DRAGONS: Vega (C) - Perea, Sánchez, Aljure, Lacombe - Carreño, Silva, Jones, McAllister - Thomas, Leclerc
Full Name: Canalave Dragons Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Dragons"
Stadium: Dragon Stadium, Canalave, Eterna (Cap. 35,000)
Sponsor (s): Mercantil Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: Red shirt with white vertical stripes and red shorts
Away Kit: All blue
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Efraín Guzmán
Director of Football: George Smith
Coach: Manuel Ríos
Last Season and Objectives: The decline of the Dragons was reflected last season in a hopeless fifteenth place, and although they were away from relegation, their future looks darker than ever. This may be the last chance Manuel Ríos will have to straighten this team, however, most odds put him as the very first coach to be sacked in the season. His job as coach of the Dragons will be safe if they manage to enter the fight for international berths.
Rivalries: Eterna Stars (Eterna Derby), Slateport Bulls, Nord Energie FC
Fans: Canalave's fans are passionate and loyal. They consider themselves as the "12th player", due to their (sometimes extreme) fanatism. With their noise and their harangues against visiting teams, they are responsible for creating the worst possible environment for the visitors at the Dragon Stadium. Canalave's fans were considered the "most loyal fans" during the last editions of the Super League.
Main Supporters Groups: "Red Passion" (1,142 members), "Dragon Army" (1,036 members)
Prediction: 16th. The Dragons' future does not look bright, and despite the fact the pundits say the team will play in the VSL 14, Canalave will have to suffer more than necessary in order to assure their presence in the Super League.

CHIQUITO FC: Williams - Sinclair, Hortúa, Rosero, Cifuentes (C) - Castroneves, Gomes, Dickens - Barrera, Méndez, Torres
Full Name: Corporación Deportiva Chiquito Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Os Verdes" (The Greens)
Stadium: Arena do Jacaré, Corumbá, Chiquito (Cap. 22,000)
Sponsor (s): AlfaCredit Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in yellow and green shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in green and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Blue shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Nazário Salgado
Director of Football: Alexis Conte
Coach: Leandro Castronovo
Last Season and Objectives: Chiquito were one of the pleasant surprises last season in the Super League, as they ended in ninth place and slowly approached the internazional berths area. The Board wants better results now, so their main focus this season will be the AFI berth or the King's Shield. The Project Castronovo is giving its first results...
Rivalries: SC Caimanes (Chiquito Derby), Pumas Maldonado, AS Bezieres
Fans: Chiquito's fans are among the most passionate fans in the Super League. However, they tend to insult their own players if they feel the players are not showing any sacrifice in the game.
Main Supporters Groups: "Os Assassinos" ("The Killers" - 1,830 members), "Estrela Verde" ("Green Star" - 1,485 members)
Prediction: 9th. Despite Chiquito's recent progress, the pundits still doubt about this team's true potential, and say this team will have to settle for ninth place this time. However, a King's Shield shock has not been ruled out...

ETERNA STARS: Mezaguez - Lannoy, Calheira, Palacios, Millers - Rivas, Reyes (C), Andrade, Torres - Mosquera, Londoño
Full Name: Eterna Stars Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Stars", "The Yellows"
Stadium: Alain Tramontin Stadium, Eterna City, Eterna (Cap. 55,000)
Sponsor (s): Bavaria (Beverages) - KolaLoka brand displayed in shirt
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Maurice Dufrasne
Director of Football: Joseph Lennon
Coach: Peter Holmes
Last Season and Objectives: The Stars had a season to forget: a terrible Apertura, a not-so-good Clausura, and missed every international qualification berth after ending in eighth place in the Overall Standings. Therefore, the main goal for this team will be any title, if not a title, then qualification to at least the AFI. "Big" team, big goals.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators and Tannenberg FC (National Derby), Slateport Bulls and Canalave Dragons (Eterna Derby), Fontvielle Impact, AS Bezieres
Fans: Eterna Stars have an important fanbase widespread in the whole nation, but most of them are concentrated in Eterna City and its outskirts. They tend to be passionate, loyal, and aggressive and intolerant with other fans, specially with Metropolis Alligators', Tannenberg's, Slateport's, and Fontvielle's fans.
Main Supporters Groups: "South End Eterna" (3,027 members), "The Stellar Brigade" (2,943 members)
Prediction: 7th. Another season without UICA competitions is waiting for the "Stars", so that means either the King's Shield or the AFI will be their only chance to play international football next season.

FONTVIELLE IMPACT: Lacombe - Lavoisier, Salazar, Millar, Demont - Perrin, Rouillard, Romero (C), Bársenas - Gignac, de Roux
Full Name: Impact de Fontvielle Football Club
Nickname (s): "Les Bleus" (The Blues), "The Impact"
Stadium: Stade de la Frontière, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 36,500)
Sponsor (s): Tamount Group (Food), Ville de Fontvielle Council (Local government)
Home Kit: All blue with details in white
Away Kit: All white with details in blue
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Antoine Tamount
Director of Football: Alain Tamount
Coach: Guy Royal
Last Season and Objectives: The best team in the Overall Standings was not the best team last season though, as the Impact lost the Canalave Crown to Nacional and had to settle for the second place, for the second time in a row. The King's Shield current holders will have to do their best in two competitions, not only retaining the cup title but also winning their fourth national title. The Tamount Board wants the double, and Fontvielle's odds to win it are among the strongest ones.
Rivalries: AS Bezieres (Derby du Foix), Olympique de Fontvielle (Derby du Fontvielle), Eterna Stars, Metropolis Alligators
Fans: Most of Fontvielle's fans work in Tamount factories, or worked for Tamount at some moment. Currently, they are specially concentrated in Fontvielle and its outskirts, Gatineau, Bezieres, and the French-speaking neighborhoods of Metropolis. They show unconditional love to the team and tend to be noisy, cheerful and optimistic, even if the team is at the bottom of the table. Although they can be unruly and rebellious, but that happens when fans of other teams provoke them.
Main Supporters Groups: "Ultras Fontvielle 04" (2,012 members), "F-Sector" (1,988 members)
Prediction: 2nd. The Impact have two options to choose from: either the King's Shield or the Canalave Crown. Not both. The pundits say that if the Impact decides to defend their Shield, they will be left without Crown and vice versa.

HAMANOS ATHLETIC CLUB: Garcés - Vergara, Lamoroux, Ruiz, Torrealba - Quintero, Douglas (C), Cortés, Garzón - Perea, Ramos
Full Name: Hamanos Town Athletic Club
Nickname (s): "The Orange", "The Dam's Boys", "The HAC"
Stadium: Estadio Gobernador Villa, Pradera, Antioquia (Cap. 23,500)
Sponsor (s): AlfaCredit Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: All orange
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Paul Jackson
Manager: Carl Thompson
Coach: Gilles Urdinola
Last Season and Objectives: The HAC managed to do what seemed impossible: save themselves from relegation last season. Even they were fighting for the first places at some moment during the last Apertura, however, their momentum ended soon and they had to face their own reality. For this season, the Board wants the team to stabilize themselves in the highest tier of valladar football, and the derbies against Pradera will be key matches in their goal.
Rivalries: Pradera FC (Clásico Antioqueño), Slateport Bulls (Derby of the Lake), Nord Energie FC
Fans: The HAC have a small fanbase, concentrated in Hamanos Town and its vicinity. They are rarely loyal to the team, since the Estadio Municipal is almost never filled with local fans. In each Hamanos' match at the Estadio Municipal there are maximum 3,500 local fans, proving the lack of support the team has, thanks to their poor campaigns.
Main Supporters Groups: "Hijos de la Presa" ("Sons of the Dam" - 518 members); "Orange Pride" (204 members)
Prediction: 18th. For the pundits, the last relegated team will be between Pradera and the HAC. However, they think the "Verdiblancos" will have more arguments to defend their Super League status successfully.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - THIRTEENTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART II)


MARINOS METROPOLIS: Sánchez - Umaña, Gutiérrez, Correa, Perea - Ricardinho, Acuña, Bourgault, Oliveira (C) - Patiño, Aguilar
Full Name: Club Deportivo Marinos de Metropolis
Nickname (s): "Los Marineros" (The Mariners), "El Cuarto Grande" (The Fourth Big Team), "Los Azul Celeste" (The Sky Blues)
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): Valladar Broadcasting Corporation (Media), AL Electronics (Electronics)
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt with black vertical stripes and black shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Luis Montes
Director of Football: Rodolfo Pérez
Coach: Thomas Russell
Last Season and Objectives: Disaster. That's the only word that can perfectly describe Marinos' performance last season. A fourteenth place, far away from the fight for international berths and several internal crises destroyed Marinos' project for VSL 12. Then, the goal is start again from scratch and stay inside the Top-10, although a serious internal renovation would not be bad for this team.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators (Metropolitan Derby), Slateport Bulls (Blue Derby), AD Cerro and Nacional (Little Metropolitan Derby), Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Marinos is the fourth most popular football team in Valladares, with a large fanbase. About 11% of Valladar population support the club, and their average gates for their home matches are the fourth highest in the Super League. Their fanbase is located mainly in Metropolis. Marinos' fans are considered one of the most passionate and loyal to their team in the Super League. They constantly tend to fight with Metropolis Alligators' and Slateport Bulls' fans, since their hostility towards them is big as well as Marinos' rivalry with both teams.
Major Supporters Groups: "Curva Azul Norte" ("North Blue End" - 2,994 members), "Reyes del Domo" ("Kings of the Dome" - 2,337 members)
Prediction: 10th. After the storm comes the calm. And it seems this team will have to settle for tenth place...for now.

METROPOLIS ALLIGATORS: Tom - García, Pereira, Abraham, Silva - Ospina, Botero, Gutiérrez, Macías (C) - Londoño, Koit
Full Name: Metropolis Alligators Football Club
Nickname (s): "Los Caimanes" (The Alligators), "Los Verdiazules" (The Green-Blues), "El Titán" (The Titan), "The MA"
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): UNE (Telecommunications), District Mayoralty of Metropolis (Local government)
Home Kit: Green shirt with blue horizontal stripes and white shorts
Away Kit: White shirt and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All blue
Chairman: Olivier Bonilla
Director of Football: Elías Parra-León
Coach: Charles McMurdon
Last Season and Objectives: The Alligators were others who will want to forget their last season as soon as possible, as their fourth place increased their title drought to nine years. Neither the Board nor the fans will tolerate more failures and the MA will have to focus on their third title if they don't want their drought to increase to ten years without titles for the most popular team in Valladares.
Rivalries: Marinos Metropolis (Metropolitan Derby), Tannenberg FC and Eterna Stars (National Derby), AD Cerro, Nacional (Little Metropolitan Derby), Fontvielle Impact, SC Caimanes, AS Bezieres
Fans: With a 14.3% of popularity, Metropolis Alligators is one of the most popular clubs in Valladares. Their fanbase is by far, the largest in the nation. The Alligators have fans in every city, town or village in Valladares. These fans are characterized for being noisy, loyal to the team, also, they protest when they see the team play poorly and they are not tolerant of opposing teams fans.
Main Supporters Groups: "The Alligator Army" (4,133 members), "The Royals" (3,649 members)
Prediction: 4th. For this season, the pundits say the Alligators will repeat the last season's campaign, and that means they won't win their third title, their title drought will increase to ten seasons and they will end fourth once again.

NACIONAL: Barrera - López, Russell, Martínez, Rueda - Vélez, Ruiz (C), Boisbriand, Lecompte - Renato, Márquez
Full Name: Club Nacional de Fútbol
Nickname (s): "La Academia" (The Academy), "Los Albos" (The Whites)
Stadium: Alexander I National Stadium, Swangard, District of Metropolis (Cap. 85,000)
Sponsor (s): Heritage (Insurance services)
Home Kit: All white
Away Kit: Red shirt and blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerardo Matallana
Director of Football: Peter Capwell
Coach: Harrison Villar
Last Season and Objectives: Nacional are coming to this season as the defending champions, after a terrible Apertura and a superb Clausura, but their performance in the TQCC was disappointing. For this season, the main goal for the "Albos" will be their third title and redemption in the TQCC. But the competition with the Impact, Bezieres and the Alligators will be difficult this season.
Rivalries: AD Cerro, Metropolis Alligators and Marinos Metropolis (Little Metropolitan Derby)
Fans: Nacional have a small fanbase, however, they are loyal to the team. In every Nacional's match at the Miller Hoverberg, there are 10,000 noisy fans cheering their team, no matter the rival.
Main Supporters Groups: "Torcida Tricolor" (2,003 members), "Hinchas Fieles" ("Faithful Fans" - 1,131 members)
Prediction: 3rd. Although Nacional come to this season as the defending champions, something tells the pundits that this team will not be able to retain their title, and will let Bezieres win their third title instead.

NORD ENERGIE FC: Reeves - García, Smith, Cabrera, Edwards - Nicholls (C), Evans, Romero, Forrest - Gomes, Andrews
Full Name: Nord Energie Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Blood and Gold", "The Electric Boys"
Stadium: Frank Clair Stadium, Fauxham, Eterna (Cap. 15,500)
Sponsor (s): Energy Inc. (Electric utilities), Bavaria (Beverages)
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with red vertical strips and yellow shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerard Montana
Director of Football: Jacques Riegel
Coach: Gilles Cheyrou
Last Season and Objectives: Nord Energie were the surprise package last season, as they managed to end in a respectable tenth place. The Board is pleased with this finish and want the team to stabilize themselves inside the Top-10. A hard mission for a team that used to be fighting in the relegation zone.
Rivalries: Canalave Dragons, Eterna Stars
Fans: Nord Energie's fanbase is mostly formed with the former workers of Carrillo Canyon I, most of them live in the outskirts of Toril, a town located north of Eterna City. This small fanbase is not as noisy as other small teams' fanbases, and they tend to sit down and just watch the game. Their loyalty is questionable since Nord Energie do not tend to play with full stadium, except when Eterna, Tannenberg, Slateport and the MA come to Toril.
Main Supporters Groups: "Toril's Bad Boys" (532 members), "Yellow-Red Union" (204 members)
Prediction: 14th. Regrettably for the pundits, Nord Energie will not be able to repeat the done last season, and they will be doomed to end in fourteenth place.

OLYMPIQUE DE FONTVIELLE: Gavanon (C) - Carrasso, Govou, Velmont, Lacroix - Lopera, Montes, Puel, Santos - Filo, Simão
Full Name: Club Sportif Olympique de Fontvielle
Nickname (s): "Les Jaune et Bleu" (The Yellow-Blues), "Le OF" (The OF), "L'Express Jaune" (The Yellow Express)
Stadium: Stade de l'Amitié, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 25,000)
Sponsor (s): Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Valladares (Rail transport)
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with details in blue and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red with details in white
Chairman: François Lemerre
Director of Football: Olivier Puel
Coach: Jean Camacho
Last Season and Objectives: Last season, Olympique de Fontvielle missed the AFI by just two points and had to settle for another seventh place. However, some days before the start of this new season, some Mytanar investors interested in the team managed to buy a 20% stake in the club with the promise of funding the club so that it can win a tournament within three seasons. Olympique's main goal for this season will be finish inside the Top-5 and a qualification to at least the AFI.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact (Derby du Fontvielle), AS Vaud, AS Bezieres
Fans: As the second team in the city, Olympique de Fontvielle have few fans. Few, but they have them. OF's fans are noisy, and like to cheer their team, and are becoming loyal to the team, since there are now more than 10,500 present fans in every Olympique's match at the Stade de l'Amitié.
Main Supporters Groups: "Virage Sud" ("South Curve" - 1,937 members), "Jaune Armée" ("Yellow Army" - 1,120 members)
Prediction: 8th. Despite the intentions of the new Mytanar co-owners, the pundits do not think Olympique has got the team to snatch a Globe Cup spot, and they think the team will end in eighth place.

PRADERA FC: Rodríguez - Saraz, Grajales, Barco, Gaviria - Garcés (C), Castro, Borrero, Phillips, Ruiz - Tello
Full Name: Pradera Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Los Verdiblancos" (The Green-Whites)
Stadium: Estadio Gobernador Villa, Pradera, Antioquia (Cap. 23,500)
Sponsor (s): Provenza (Food), Banco Latino (Financial services)
Home Kit: Green shirt and white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Guillermo Buitrago
Director of Football: Julio Aristizabal
Coach: Frèderic Galletti
Last Season and Objectives: After a one-season exile in the B-League, the team from the capital of the Antioquia state return as the B-League champions. For this season, the renewed Pradera is focused on avoiding relegation and assuring their presence in VSL 14. Will they manage to do that?
Rivalries: Hamanos Athletic Club (Clásico Antioqueño), AC Tallin (Meadow Derby)
Fans: Pradera's fanbase is located mainly in Pradera. Their fans are noisy, and tend to insult directly their own players when they feel their players are not doing any sacrifice in the game. Every person accepting to be the Pradera's coach must be prepared to endure the pressure from the Estadio Gobernador Villa's "shareholder's stand".
Main Supporters Groups: "Jugador 12" ("12th Player" - 1,320 members), "Los Sureños" (The Southerners" - 643 members)
Prediction: 17th. "Los Verdiblancos" will have the HAC as their rivals in their quest for avoiding relegation, but the pundits are rooting for Pradera to save themselves for relegation (even if they do it in the last day of the season)

PUMAS MALDONADO: Deivid - Costa, Mineiro, Gomes - Guimaraes, Toledo, Vanegas, Texeira (C), Renan - Nilton, Roudet
Full Name: Pumas Maldonado Futebol Clube
Nickname (s): "O Puma" (The Cougar)
Stadium: Estádio do Maldonado, Maldonado, Chiquito (Cap. 23,000)
Sponsor (s): Banco Latino (Financial services)
Home Kit: Blue shirt with details in white and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All yellow
Chairman: Inácio Montalvo
Coach: Bernard Houllier
Last Season and Objectives: Pumas are back in the Super League after finishing in third place last season in the Valladar B-League. Their last participation in the Super League was four seasons ago, in which they ended in last place. Obviously, Pumas' Board do not want to play only one season and return to the B-League and are doing their best in order for the team to stay in the highest tier of valladar football. Let's see if they manage to save themselves from their fate...
Rivalries: Chiquito FC, SC Caimanes
Fans: This team's fanbase is located mainly in their city: Maldonado. Their fans do not accompany in crowds their team when Pumas plays at the Estádio de Maldonado. This does not mean their fans are not loyal to their team, this has an explanation: Maldonado is a city where unemployment rules, that means that very few people have money to pay their tickets to see their team at the stadium. Interestingly, Pumas' fans DO accompany their team when they play in other cities. Strange, isn't it?
Main Supporters Groups: "Pumas do Sul" ("Southern Cougars" - 983 members), "Torcida Azul" ("Blue Torcida" - 644 members)
Prediction: 20th. The pundits say Pumas' current squad has not been prepared well enough to play more than one season in the Super League, so their stay will be short and not memorable.

SC CAIMANES: Ortega, Maicon, Jimenez, Kléver, Beltrán - Lucio, Tiago Neves, Rosero, Anthony - Araújo, Souza (C)
Full Name: Sport Club Caimanes
Nickname (s): "Os Jacarés" (The Alligators)
Stadium: Estádio Armando Bozzelli, Campo Grande, Chqiuito (Cap. 50,000)
Sponsor (s): MediCare (Healthcare)
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in black and black shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Josué Pereira
Director of Football: Jose Luis Barreiro
Coach: Ricardo Gomes
Last Season and Objectives: Caimanes come from a disappointing seventeenth place, with three goals saving them from relegation last season. The Board members are facing a difficult situation and it is possible that they decide to put the club on sale soon. On the sporting level, Caimanes' will have to focus on avoiding relegation. An eventual relegation to the B-League could be the end for this team.
Rivalries: Chiquito FC (Chiquito Derby), Pumas Maldonado, Metropolis Alligators, Tannenberg FC, AS Bezieres, Marinos Metropolis, Slateport Bulls
Fans: SC Caimanes have a strong fanbase, concentrated in Campo Grande, Chiquito, and some neighbourhoods in Metropolis. These fans are passionate, and very hostile towards referees and rival teams' fans. They do not hesitate to make angry claims when the referee makes decisions that may potentially affect their team. Caimanes' fans also like to form brawls with other teams' fans in national roads, when they travel to see Caimanes' game in another city.
Main Supporters Groups: "Torcida de Jacarés" ("Alligators' Torcida" - 2,023 members), "Furacão Verde" ("Green Hurricane" - 1,928 members)
Prediction: 15th. Despite all the problems Caimanes are suffering, the pundits expect this team to assure their presence in the VSL 14.

SLATEPORT BULLS: García - Tamayo, Jones, Lennon (C), Suárez - Arribagé, López, Quintero, Velasco - Robichaud, Varga
Full Name: Slateport Bulls Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Bulls"
Stadium: Estadio de la Riviera, Slateport, Eterna (Cap. 40,000)
Sponsor (s): BullRade (Sports drink), MediCare (Healthcare), Hydro (Electric utilities)
Home Kit: Blue shirt with details in red and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in dark blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Alexander Edwards
Director of Football: Charles Williams
Coach: Leonard Gillet
Last Season and Objectives: After a great comeback last season, the Bulls managed to end in fifth place, qualify to the Globe Cup and leave Tannenberg and Olympique without UICA competition. For the coming season, the Bulls want to qualify to the Globe Cup once again. But the Bulls are ready to fight for the title if there's the option.
Rivalries: Eterna Stars (Eterna Derby), Marinos Metropolis (Blue Derby), SC Caimanes, Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg FC
Fans: Their fanbase is passionate and cheerful, based mainly in Slateport and its outskirts. They are always present at the Estadio de la Riviera, cheering their team with chants and harangues. Sometimes, they tend to provoke other teams' fans, specially Marinos' fans, with the idea of showing their hatred towards them. The rivalry between both fanbases is big, since both teams are trying to be considered as the "fourth Big team" in the nation.
Main Supporters Groups: "Blue Bulls" (1,653 members), "S-Sector" (1,203 members)
Prediction: 6th. With Tannenberg, the Stars and Olympique wanting the last Globe Cup spot, the fight for the fifth place will be difficult and the Bulls will have to settle for some tickets to Aeropag.

TANNENBERG FC: Triviño - Carvalho, Carlinhos, Martínez, Alex - Rosero, Phillips, Coleman, Peterson - Ruíz (C), Pérez
Full Name: Tannenberg Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Citizens", "The Black-Whites", "The Knights", "The TFC"
Stadium: White Meadow Arena, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 69,070)
Sponsor (s): Oak Air (Airline)
Home Kit: Black shirt with white vertical strips and black shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in black and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: Black shirt with details in white and white shorts
Chairman: Gustavo Delima
Director of Football: Ulises Maldonado
Coach: Peter Selás
Last Season and Objectives: A sixth place in the Super League and a fourth place in the Aeropag Football Invitational are Tannenberg's most recent results, which helped to cool a bit the tension between the team's owners and the fans. Tannenberg's Board are confident they will finish inside the Top-5 again and will get an UICA berth. Although the second title is not far from the sight of the "Citizens"...
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators and Eterna Stars (National Derby), Ajax Carloburgo and AC Tallin (Carloburgo Derby), Slateport Bulls, AS Bezieres
Fans: Tannenberg are one of the most popular teams in the nation, as 14.3% of the country's population support the club. Their fans are passionate, but they do not tend to feel themselves provoked by other teams' fans, like Bezieres' fans. Their love towards the team is demonstrated every week, as the White Meadow Arena is frecuently filled with more than 62,000 noisy local fans, cheering their team.
Main Supporters Groups: "Tannenberg Battlers" (3,522 members), "Black-White Artillery" (3,103 members)
Prediction: 5th. If we could expand the list of favourites for the title, we could add the TFC. However, they don't seem as strong as our other candidates so their "consolation prize" will be the fifth place.

THE KING'S SHIELD - THIRD EDITION


The third edition of the King's Shield was contested with perhaps more intensity than the other ones. Added to the fact the cup competition has got a new sponsor (their first sponsor ever), we saw that the 40 professional teams in Valladares with the right to compete in the Shield did their best in order to win it and the Cygnus Cup berth. There were some surprises but, in the end, a title-starved "Big" team took the prizes. Here are the results:

Play-Off Round
Mineros de Talamonte 0-1 AS Montreux
AS Montreux 1-1 Mineros de Talamonte (2-1 agg)

Corumbá EC 2-3 Gatineau UC 98
Gatineau UC 98 5-1 Corumbá EC (8-3 agg)

Dynamo Metropolis 0-2 Valencia FC
Valencia FC 2-0 Dynamo Metropolis (4-0 agg)

FC Borderville 0-1 SC Caimanes
SC Caimanes 2-0 FC Borderville (3-0 agg)

Servette FC 4-2 Hamanos Athletic Club
Hamanos Athletic Club 1-1 Servette FC (3-5 agg)

Alejandría SC 0-0 Marinos Metropolis
Marinos Metropolis 1-0 Alejandría SC (1-0 agg)

RC Corania 1-2 Ajax Carloburgo
Ajax Carloburgo 1-1 RC Corania (3-2 agg)


Among the teams entering the competition in the very first round, we have teams placed from 13th to 20th place in the last Super League season (including Marinos Metropolis, an illustrious guest), teams placed from 13th to 17th in the last B-League season, and the three Tercera Liga regional winners in the last season (Dynamo, Corumbá, Mineros). Marinos suffered more than expected to defeat Alejandría, while the Dragons and Caimanes made it to the next round with few difficulties. Hamanos were the only ones who lost to a B-League side: the unfashionable Servette FC.

Round of 32
Dep. Aguablanca 2-1 AD Cerro
AD Cerro 1-0 Dep. Aguablanca (2-2 agg) (AD Cerro wins on away goals rule)

Tessano FC 0-1 AS Vaud
AS Vaud 2-2 Tessano FC (3-2 agg)

Canalave Dragons 1-1 Servette FC (2-1 AET, 3-2 agg)

Marinos Metropolis 0-2 Ajax Carloburgo
Ajax Carloburgo 0-0 Marinos Metropolis (2-0 agg)


The true competition began in this round, and most of the favourites to the title qualified to the next round. The Shield holders, Fontvielle Impact, had few problems against Tallin and Olympique left Lili, last season's runners-up, without a chance. Moreover, Bezieres, Tannenberg, Nacional and Eterna Stars had to suffer against their opponents, while the MA could only eliminate the Rovers with a goal on extra time. Marinos' short road had a terrible end with their elimination at the hands of Ajax Carloburgo in this round.

It's just the Round of 16, and we already had some high-level clashes that we didn't expect in such an early round of the cup: Tannenberg-Slateport, MA-Bezieres, and a Canalave Crown's rematch: Fontvielle Impact-Nacional. Tannenberg kicked the Bulls out of the Shield (once again), the Alligators left Bezieres with the desire to win the Shield for the first time and the Impact got their revenge on Nacional. The Stars were knocked out by Olympique, while four B-League sides qualified to this round, being forced to eliminate each other, and Belfort and Valencia made it to the following round.

Quarter-Finals
AD Cerro 1-1 RC Belfort

Ajax Carloburgo 1-0 Valencia FC (3-0 agg)


Eight teams qualified to the quarterfinals of the King's Shield, but only four of them could make it to the semifinals. Belfort gave a shock to Cerro and a strong defense at home helped them qualify to the semifinals, the Citizens ended Olympique's fantasy, Ajax made it to the semifinals for their first time ever after getting rid of Valencia, and the MA decided that the Shield will have a new champion after they dispatched their old arch-nemesis (and defending Shield holders) Fontvielle Impact.

Semi-Finals
RC Belfort 1-1 Tannenberg FC

Metropolis Alligators 2-0 Ajax Carloburgo

Belfort's successful campaign in this King's Shield edition came to an end in Carloburgo, with their loss to Tannenberg FC. That way, the Citizens were the first finalists of this edition. In the other semifinal, Metropolis Alligators ended Ajax's hopes with two victories, and will be facing the Citizens in a final expected by everyone.

Final
Tannenberg FC 1-1 Metropolis Alligators
Metropolis Alligators 3-0 Tannenberg FC (4-1 agg)


Congratulations to Metropolis Alligators, the winners of the third King's Shield!

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - THIRTEENTH SEASON (PART I OF IV)


Apertura Tournament

MD1:

The Valladar Super League opened its thirteenth season with the traditional "Champions Opening Match", which was not contested by Bezieres (for the first time since it was introduced) and instead by the current Canalave Crown holders, Nacional, who defeated a promising Pradera 3-1 at the National Stadium. The King's Shield's holders also started their campaign with three points in their pocket, as they defeated Vaud in Gatineau. Fontvielle Impact had to wait 89 minutes to beat a tough Marinos, the Stars had a difficult time against Tallin, while Bezieres' visit to Carloburgo was more like a walk in the park. The shock of the day came from Maldonado, with Slateport's loss to the newly promoted Pumas, while the HAC and Nord Energie cancelled themselves in a yawning festival.

Nacional 3-1 Pradera FC (Renato 16', Boisbriand 72', Márquez 85'; Ruiz 36')
Pumas Maldonado 1-0 Slateport Bulls (Roudet 63')
Chiquito FC 2-0 AD Cerro (Torres 33', Barrera 68')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-0 Nord Energie FC
Marinos Metropolis 0-1 Fontvielle Impact (Bársenas 89')
Eterna Stars 2-1 AC Tallin (Londoño 73', Andrade 90'+3'; Sierra 13')
AS Vaud 1-2 Metropolis Alligators (Carrasso 27'; Botero 22', Macías 83')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-0 SC Caimanes (Simão 25', 53' PK)
Canalave Dragons 0-1 Tannenberg FC (Peterson 47')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-5 AS Bezieres (Uribe 25', 86', Revault 37', Hardy 48', 61')


MD2:

Bezieres, Metropolis Alligators and Nacional managed to get their second victories in order to stay as the only teams with perfect performance in two matches. Bezieres defeated the always-tough Olympique, and the two Metropolitan teams left their rivals in crisis with zero points: the MA won over their arch-rivals Marinos, while the "Albos" gave the "Bulls" their second defeat in two matches. Like the last season, Tannenberg lost to Vaud their first match at home and Pradera left Metropolis with a point. With their loss to the HAC, Tallin joined the "Blue Derby" contenders at the bottom of the standings.

Slateport Bulls 0-1 Nacional (Lecompte 36')
AD Cerro 1-1 Pradera FC (Galletti 75'; Tello 54')
Nord Energie FC 2-0 Pumas Maldonado (Andrews 32', Forrest 63')
Fontvielle Impact 1-1 Chiquito FC (Gignac 27'; Méndez 84')
AC Tallin 1-2 Hamanos Athletic Club (Galtier 53'; Ramos 20', Douglas 45'+2')
Metropolis Alligators 3-1 Marinos Metropolis (Koit 14', Gutiérrez 31', Londoño 73'; Aguilar 34')
SC Caimanes 2-2 Eterna Stars (Araújo 24', Souza 82'; Reyes 38', Andrade 73')
Tannenberg FC 0-2 AS Vaud (Ortega 38', Payet 52')
AS Bezieres 2-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Lamont 21', Collazos 68'; Filo 49')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Palacios 72'; Thomas 40')


MD3:

After a thrilling match in Corumbá and thanks to Nacional's and Bezieres' respective defeats, Metropolis Alligators became the sole leaders in this Apertura with 9 out of 9 points. The Stars, who brought Bezieres' streak to an end, and the Impact, who defeated the B-League champions in Pradera, are now escorting the Alligators with 7 points. Olympique and Pumas completed 6 points and remain unbeaten at home, Slateport won their first match against Nord Energie, who are becoming a hard nut to crack, and the match between Marinos and Tannenberg was a thrilling one that gave the Mariners their first point and the fourth for the "Citizens". Tallin are left in last place as the only team with no points in this Apertura.

Nacional 0-1 AD Cerro (Galletti 48')
Slateport Bulls 1-0 Nord Energie FC (Robichaud 73')
Pradera FC 0-2 Fontvielle Impact (de Roux 28', 49')
Pumas Maldonado 2-1 AC Tallin (Texeira 29', Nilton 83'; Aldemar 77')
Chiquito FC 3-4 Metropolis Alligators (Castroneves 38', 44', Dickens 84'; Ospina 26', Koit 51', 58', Macías 87')
Hamanos Athletic Club 1-2 SC Caimanes (Perea 66'; Tiago Neves 33', Souza 70')
Marinos Metropolis 3-3 Tannenberg FC (Bourgault 33', Aguilar 75', Patiño 80'; Pérez 24', Ruiz 52', Coleman 77')
Eterna Stars 3-0 AS Bezieres (Mosquera 26', Rivas 59', Londoño 90'+1')
AS Vaud 1-0 Ajax Carloburgo (Payet 75')
Olympique de Fontvielle 3-1 Canalave Dragons (Santos 16', Puel 39', Filo 83'; McAllister 87')


MD4:

Pradera's third visit to Metropolis in the season ended with a harsh 4-1 loss at the hands of Metropolis Alligators, who confirmed their first place with this victory and at the same time, sank the "Green-Whites" in the last place with only one point in four matches. The Stars, who left their rivals Canalave Dragons in intensive care (and their coach with a foot out of the team...), and the Impact, who defeated Cerro at home, are second- and third-placed, respectively. Bezieres are moving away from the first places, Tannenberg thrashed Chiquito in Carloburgo, thus regaining their level and Marinos and Ajax hurt themselves with a draw at Parken Road.

Nord Energie FC 0-1 Nacional (Boisbriand 76')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 AD Cerro (Romero 24', Gignac 78')
AC Tallin 2-2 Slateport Bulls (Pereira 24', Galtier 83'; Varga 34', Velasco 55')
Metropolis Alligators 4-1 Pradera FC (Botero 22', Ospina 45'+1', Londoño 66', 83'; Borrero 58')
SC Caimanes 2-0 Pumas Maldonado (Rosero 49', Lucio 72')
Tannenberg FC 3-0 Chiquito FC (Pérez 20', Peterson 43', Ruiz 75')
AS Bezieres 2-2 Hamanos Athletic Club (Uribe 24', 55'; Ramos 36', Cortés 81')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-1 Marinos Metropolis (Johansson-Bakvis 84'; Ricardinho 28')
Canalave Dragons 1-2 Eterna Stars (Thomas 74'; Londoño 38', Torres 61')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-1 AS Vaud (Lopera 36', Montes 77'; Carrasso 59')


MD5:

The two-nil loss to Cerro in the "Little Metropolitan Derby", added to the Stars' victory against Vaud and Fontvielle's victory over Nacional, sent the MA to the third place with 12 points, one less than the Stars (new leaders, by the way...) and the Impact. Caimanes surprised Slateport, and helped by Olympique's puncture at the Dome, are now in fourth place with 10 points. Bezieres suffered a painful and shocking defeat in Maldonado, Marinos got their first victory in the season, and Tannenberg and Pradera starred -perhaps- the worst match of this season, with a boring scoreless draw. Tallin's defeat in Fauxham confirmed the "Southern Gunners" in the last place in this Apertura.

Nacional 2-3 Fontvielle Impact (Renato 26', Boisbriand 90'+1'; Perrin 32', de Roux 54', Rouillard 78')
Nord Energie FC 1-0 AC Tallin (Forrest 48')
AD Cerro 2-0 Metropolis Alligators (Robson 28', Riascos 66')
Slateport Bulls 0-2 SC Caimanes (Anthony 50', Rosero 85')
Pradera FC 0-0 Tannenberg FC
Pumas Maldonado 2-0 AS Bezieres (Vanegas 38', Renan 83')
Chiquito FC 1-2 Ajax Carloburgo (Gomes 44'; Rivas 29', Ferreira 77')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-1 Canalave Dragons (Leclerc 9')
Marinos Metropolis 1-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (Oliveira 14')
Eterna Stars 2-0 AS Vaud (Andrade 32', 78')


MD6:

Thanks to Marinos' draw in Eterna City and a great victory in Metropolis against the MA, Fontvielle Impact jumped to the first place, with 16 points. Meanwhile, the Stars fell to the second place with 14 points, and the Alligators, who lost their second match in a row, fell to the fourth place thanks to Olympique's victory over Chiquito at the Stade de l'Amitié. Pumas have managed to be the "wildcard" in this Apertura, as they defeated Bezieres last week and now defeated the Dragons at the Dragon Stadium. Speaking of "Rouges" and "Dragons", their coaches are now in serious danger, as their bad campaigns so far are far below the expected by the Boards of both teams. Bezieres suffered another painful loss, this time with the Bulls (another team in need of results) humiliating them at the Jules Picot, and Tannenberg are unable to win as Cerro stole a point from the White Meadow Arena. The Citizens' rivals are having a worse time, as Ajax lost to Pradera and fell to the 16th place and Tallin are in last place.

AC Tallin 0-2 Nacional (Boisbriand 37', 58')
Metropolis Alligators 0-1 Fontvielle Impact (Romero 75')
SC Caimanes 1-2 Nord Energie FC (Souza 30'; Evans 54', Forrest 83')
Tannenberg FC 1-1 AD Cerro (Pérez 43'; Riascos 88')
AS Bezieres 1-4 Slateport Bulls (Vercoutre 79'; Quintero 28', Varga 38', 85', Robichaud 67')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-1 Pradera FC (Phillips 37')
Canalave Dragons 1-2 Pumas Maldonado (Leclerc 53'; Roudet 40', Nilton 83')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-0 Chiquito FC (Filo 36', Simão 41')
AS Vaud 3-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Ortega 22', 76', Sandro 55'; Perea 32')
Eterna Stars 2-2 Marinos Metropolis (Reyes 11', Mosquera 83'; Aguilar 38', Acuña 74')


MD7:

Heads began to roll in this Apertura! Yves Rexach's period as coach of Bezieres came to an end after their loss to Nord Energie in Fauxham. Also, Manuel Ríos was sacked by the Dragons' Board after their loss in Slateport. Both results left "Rouges" and "Dragons" hitting the panic button in the lower part of the standings, and these teams will have a caretaker manager in charge until (at least) the end of this Apertura. In other news, the Impact remain as solid leaders of the Apertura with their victory over Tannenberg, and the Stars, Olympique and the Alligators are trying to give chase to the leaders with their respective victories.

Nacional 0-1 Metropolis Alligators (Koit 56')
AC Tallin 0-2 SC Caimanes (Beltrán 35', Souza 78')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 Tannenberg FC (Gignac 32', de Roux 81')
Nord Energie FC 1-0 AS Bezieres (Andrews 72')
AD Cerro 0-0 Ajax Carloburgo
Slateport Bulls 1-0 Canalave Dragons (López 29')
Pradera FC 0-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Puel 43', Santos 65')
Pumas Maldonado 0-2 AS Vaud (Silvera 20', Payet 35')
Chiquito FC 0-1 Eterna Stars (Londoño 58')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-2 Marinos Metropolis (Bourgault 36', Oliveira 72')


MD8:

Fontvielle Impact lost their first match in this Apertura in the city of Carloburgo, and allowed Eterna Stars to reach the top of the standings with 20 points after their victory over Pradera at home. The National Derby between "Citizens" and "Alligators" had no winner and Olympique ratified themselves as the best team at home with five victories in five matches. Jean-Pierre Aulas' period as caretaker manager of Bezieres is off to a good start with a victory over Tallin and Michael Serrat's tenure of Canalave Dragons also started well, with a victory over Nord Energie.

SC Caimanes 1-0 Nacional (Araújo 38')
Tannenberg FC 1-1 Metropolis Alligators (Ruiz 48'; Koit 76')
AS Bezieres 2-0 AC Tallin (Hardy 29', Uribe 33')
Ajax Carloburgo 2-1 Fontvielle Impact (Rogers 27', Johansson-Bakvis 84' PK; Gignac 18')
Canalave Dragons 2-0 Nord Energie FC (Leclerc 24', Jones 55')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-0 AD Cerro (Montes 74')
AS Vaud 0-0 Slateport Bulls
Eterna Stars 3-1 Pradera FC (Londoño 32', Torres 49', Andrade 68'; Tello 42')
Marinos Metropolis 2-1 Pumas Maldonado (Aguilar 35', Oliveira 67'; Perea 87' OG)
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-2 Chiquito FC (Barrera 11', Dickens 77')


MD9:

The victory in the "Derby du Fontvielle" over the OF and the draw between Cerro and Eterna Stars in Metropolis allowed Fontvielle Impact to return to the top of the standings with 22 points. Two of the teams in the escorting lot missed the chance to reduce the difference with the Top-2, as the Alligators were surprised by Ajax at the Dome, and Caimanes lost to Bezieres, who complete now two victories in a row under Jean-Pierre Aulas' guidance. The "Blue Derby" was won by Marinos, who are slowly climbing up positions, and Tallin managed to heroically rescue a draw against Canalave Dragons, as did Hamanos in the "Clásico Antioqueño" against Pradera FC.

Nacional 1-2 Tannenberg FC (Márquez 19'; Phillips 38', Coleman 79')
SC Caimanes 0-1 AS Bezieres (Revault 34')
Metropolis Alligators 1-2 Ajax Carloburgo (Koit 37'; Ferreira 59', Johansson-Bakvis 77')
AC Tallin 2-2 Canalave Dragons (Galtier 65', Aldemar 90'+2'; Carreño 6', Leclerc 28')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (de Roux 28', Gignac 73')
Nord Energie FC 0-1 AS Vaud (Carrasso 41')
AD Cerro 1-1 Eterna Stars (Galletti 21'; Mosquera 45'+1')
Slateport Bulls 0-1 Marinos Metropolis (Oliveira 66')
Pradera FC 1-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Ruiz 2'; Douglas 88')
Pumas Maldonado 1-1 Chiquito FC (Roudet 58'; Torres 25')


MD10:

After ten matches, Eterna Stars are leading the Apertura Tournament with 24 points, specially thanks to their victory over the Impact, who fell to the second place with 22 points. A bit behind, we have Metropolis Alligators (who put an end to Olympique's unbeaten streak at home), the OF, Marinos, Caimanes and Vaud, trying to stay close to the leaders. Bezieres' recovery was stopped cold by Nacional, while the Dragons had to see how their rival came from behind and drew the match in the final minutes (again). Pradera, Chiquito, Hamanos and Tallin seem to be the teams with the first option to be fighting against relegation in the Clausura, and they will have to improve their performance in the Apertura's final matches.

AS Bezieres 0-2 Nacional (Boisbriand 37', Renato 74')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-1 Tannenberg FC (Peterson 81')
Canalave Dragons 2-2 SC Caimanes (Leclerc 10', Silva 19'; Anthony 38', Tiago Neves 86' PK)

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - THIRTEENTH SEASON (PART II OF IV)


Apertura Tournament

MD11:

Fontvielle Impact took advantage of Eterna Stars' loss in the "National Derby" against the MA, and reached the top of the standings with 25 points. With the Stars stalled in second place, the other big winners this week were the Alligators, who are still exerting pressure over the leaders, with 22 points. Marinos' fifth victory in a row sends them to the fourth place, while Olympique suffered a harsh defeat in Carloburgo, falling to the eighth place in the process. Bezieres and the Dragons are still unable to find the path to victory and the red zone does not present any changes.

Nacional 1-1 Ajax Carloburgo (Ruiz 68'; Rivas 33')
AS Bezieres 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Revault 16'; Thomas 57')
Tannenberg FC 2-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (Rosero 24', Pérez 57')
SC Caimanes 1-1 AS Vaud (Souza 17'; Ortega 88')
Metropolis Alligators 3-1 Eterna Stars (Botero 25', Koit 53', Londoño 64'; Reyes 37' PK)
AC Tallin 0-1 Marinos Metropolis (Aguilar 22')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 Hamanos Athletic Club (Bársenas 72', Romero 85')
Nord Energie FC 1-1 Chiquito FC (Gomes 47'; Cabrera 76' OG)
AD Cerro 2-0 Pumas Maldonado (Galletti 27', 70')
Slateport Bulls 1-1 Pradera FC (Robichaud 83'; Ruiz 42')


MD12:

The Impact ratified themselves at the top of this Apertura with 28 points after their victory in Maldonado against a tough Pumas. The Alligators, who are in second place, gave an exhibition of goals in Pradera and sank the HAC in the relegation zone, while the Stars had a bad time against their most hated rivals, losing against the MA last week and now losing against Tannenberg, defeats that have cost them the first and the second place. Marinos' victorious streak was cut by Caimanes with an one-all draw at the Dome, while Bezieres are also having a bad time, after getting another draw. The Dragons were not humiliated by Nacional, but by Renato, who got rid of them nearly single-handedly. Breaking news coming from Carloburgo, as Gonzalo García could become the third coach to be sacked in this season (a new record, by the way...)

Canalave Dragons 0-3 Nacional (Renato 6', 35', 72')
Olympique de Fontvielle 3-1 Ajax Carloburgo (Filo 14', Puel 52', Simão 88'; Palacios 47')
AS Vaud 1-1 AS Bezieres (Payet 34'; Hardy 78')
Eterna Stars 0-1 Tannenberg FC (Pérez 24')
Marinos Metropolis 1-1 SC Caimanes (Oliveira 36'; Anthony 73')
Hamanos Athletic Club 2-5 Metropolis Alligators (Garzón 65', Perea 83'; Ospina 18', Koit 24', 79', Macías 36', Gutiérrez 61')
Chiquito FC 0-0 AC Tallin
Pumas Maldonado 0-1 Fontvielle Impact (de Roux 72')
Pradera FC 0-2 Nord Energie FC (Andrews 35', Romero 68')
Slateport Bulls 1-0 AD Cerro (Quintero 39')


MD13:

And the guillotine makes its third appearance in this Apertura, this time to mark the end of Gonzalo García's era as coach of Tallin after the 2-0 loss to Pradera at home, which left the "Southern Gunners" winless and stalled in last place with only four points. Fontvielle Impact continue as leaders, after a victory over Slateport Bulls, but the Alligators are still trying to give them chase with a victory against Pumas. Caimanes humiliated their arch-rivals Chiquito (and sent them to the relegation zone) in the most heated "Chiquito Derby" we've ever had. Fourty-four Torcida members and fourty-five Estrela Verde members were arrested after the clash between both supporters groups before the match. "Stars" and "Rouges" are back to the victory path after their refreshing victories over Ajax and Marinos, respectively, Nacional are now in sixth place and Vaud made the Dragons hit the panic button once again.

Nacional 2-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Boisbriand 25', Lecompte 58'; Lacroix 48')
Canalave Dragons 0-1 AS Vaud (Payet 59')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-1 Eterna Stars (Mosquera 44')
AS Bezieres 2-1 Marinos Metropolis (Revault 56', Vercoutre 68'; Acuña 74')
Tannenberg FC 2-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Peterson 24', Pérez 79'; Ramos 50')
SC Caimanes 3-0 Chiquito FC (Tiago Neves 26', Souza 45'+2', Beltrán 90'+4')
Metropolis Alligators 1-0 Pumas Maldonado (Londoño 67')
AC Tallin 0-2 Pradera FC (Borrero 5', Tello 78')
Fontvielle Impact 2-0 Slateport Bulls (Perrin 12', Bársenas 76')
Nord Energie FC 3-0 AD Cerro (Romero 17', Andrews 42', Forrest 69')


MD14:

And the Impact were finally stopped short. With their defeat in Fauxham, they allowed Metropolis Alligators (who defeated a lackluster Slateport) to level them at the top of the standings (Fontvielle are still leaders thanks to the head-to-head result, though). The Stars dispatched (with class) a messy Olympique, and got closer to the first place. Tannenberg were others who took advantage of the Impact's puncture and defeated Pumas in order to get closer to the leaders. Bezieres had no mercy on Chiquito and the four-nil thrashing in Corumbá was the end of the road for Leandro Castronovo as coach of Chiquito. Hamanos got their first victory at home with Ajax as victim, while John Kurt's first match as caretaker manager of Tallin ended with an undeserved defeat at the National Stadium.

AD Cerro 1-0 AC Tallin (Riascos 79')

MD15:

Good news for the Impact, as MA's and Eterna's respective draws put them as sole leaders with 34 points. Tannenberg also wasted this valuable chance to place themselves in second place and could only draw with the Bulls. Olympique are still in freefall with their loss to Hamanos at home, and the "Derby of Hunger and Need", played between Canalave and Chiquito, ended in a draw, which leaves both teams in relegation zone. Tallin are still in last place and it seems the coach was not the problem...

MD16:

Only five teams have chances to win the Apertura and the first TQCC berth after this matchday. The Impact remained as sole leaders with their victory over Caimanes in Fontvielle, but the Stars' victory in Pradera keeps the Stars close to the first place. The Alligators suffered a dangerous slip with their draw against last-placed Tallin at Parken Road, Marinos are fourth after their thrashing of Nacional, while Tannenberg suffered a harsh defeat at the hands of Nord Energie. Olympique reacted in Maldonado and Bezieres slipped again.

MD17:

In the most important match this week, Bezieres humiliated their arch-rivals Fontvielle Impact. The first "Derby du Foix" in this season ended with a painful 5-1 defeat for the Apertura leaders, who saw how Metropolis Alligators cut the gap between them and the Alligators to just one point. The Stars are also getting closer to the top, but their draw against Pumas did not help them that much. The "Carloburgo Derby" ended with a victory for Tannenberg, which keeps them alive, while Marinos lost a lot of terrain with their one-all draw against Chiquito and the Dragons celebrated a victory for the first time since MD8.

SC Caimanes 0-2 Metropolis Alligators (Botero 18', Koit 78')


MD18:

The fight for the Apertura title and the TQCC berth is now reduced to three teams: Fontvielle Impact, Metropolis Alligators and Eterna Stars are the only ones with a chance to win the title. Although Marinos and Tannenberg won their respective matches, they lost the head-to-head with the Impact, and therefore they were left without any chance. The Carloburgo Derby between Tallin and Ajax ended in a victory for the Inmigrants, with a goal by Per-Olivier Johansson-Bakvis, while Chiquito managed to get out of the relegation zone with their victory over Nacional.

Chiquito FC 2-1 Nacional (Dickens 38', Barrera 77'; Lecompte 28')

Metropolis Alligators 1-1 AS Bezieres (Koit 24'; Hardy 73')
SC Caimanes 1-2 Tannenberg FC (Tiago Neves 24'; Coleman 18', Peterson 69')


MD19:

Some matches of no importance at all, all of them played on Saturday evening...

Nacional 3-0 Pumas Maldonado (Renato 19', Boisbriand 58', Márquez 69')
Chiquito FC 2-0 Pradera FC (Méndez 38', Barrera 86')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-2 Slateport Bulls (Varga 42', Robichaud 77')
Marinos Metropolis 1-1 AD Cerro (Aguilar 87'; Riascos 55')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-1 AC Tallin (Simão 10' PK; Aldemar 90'+2' PK)
Ajax Carloburgo 1-2 SC Caimanes (Rogers 51'; Souza 27', Rosero 79')
AS Bezieres 2-1 Tannenberg FC (Revault 27', Lamont 84'; Ruiz 66')


And the "important matches" in this day:

Eterna Stars 4-1 Nord Energie FC (Torres 14', Andrade 26', Mosquera 55', 89'; Palacios 76' OG)
AS Vaud 3-1 Fontvielle Impact (Payet 24', Carrasso 76', Ortega 84'; de Roux 20')
Canalave Dragons 2-1 Metropolis Alligators (Leclerc 27', McAllister 87'; Londoño 75')


Eterna Stars were crowned as the Apertura champions thanks to their victory over Nord Energie and the Alligators' and Fontvielle's respective defeats. Bezieres did a remarkable comeback but that was not enough, and Marinos, Tannenberg and Vaud will start the Clausura in a great position for international berths. Slateport Bulls, Olympique de Fontvielle and Nacional were in debt and six teams (Pradera, Chiquito, Canalave, Hamanos, Pumas and Tallin) will start the Clausura with the obligation of avoiding relegation, although Tallin already looks like if they had been relegated...

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - THIRTEENTH SEASON (PART III OF IV)


Clausura Tournament

MD1:

Nacional, Marinos, the Stars, the Alligators, Olympique, Bezieres, Pumas, Cerro and Nord Energie started this Clausura with victories. The Apertura champions started the defense of their title with an easy victory at Parken Road, while the Alligators managed to get rid of the annoying Vaud. Fontvielle Impact lost to Marinos at home for the first time in a while, and the "Bulls" were surprised by Pumas. Bezieres defeated Ajax, Olympique left Campo Grande with their first three points and Tannenberg were unable to defeat the Dragons.

Pradera FC 1-3 Nacional (Ruiz 48'; Márquez 13', Renato 37', Boisbriand 74')
Slateport Bulls 1-3 Pumas Maldonado (Quintero 24'; Texeira 36', Nilton 58', Roudet 89')

SC Caimanes 0-3 Olympique de Fontvielle (Simão 9', Puel 39', Santos 78')
Tannenberg FC 2-2 Canalave Dragons (Ruiz 42', Pérez 58'; Jones 29', Silva 74')
AS Bezieres 2-0 Ajax Carloburgo (Uribe 35', Revault 62')


MD2:

Nacional and the Apertura champions, Eterna Stars, are the only ones with two victories after two matches: the "Albos" dispatched Slateport Bulls with a 3-1 victory, while the "Stars" got rid of Caimanes. The Metropolitan Derby between Marinos and the Alligators ended with an one-all draw which keeps both teams in qualification zone to UICA tournaments, while Tannenberg left Gatineau with a victory. After 21 matches, Tallin finally managed to celebrate a victory in this season, and the fight against relegation is tight with six teams separated by either one or two points from each other.

Nacional 3-1 Slateport Bulls (Boisbriand 37', Renato 68', Vélez 77'; Varga 29')
Pradera FC 1-1 AD Cerro (Tello 59'; Riascos 45'+2')
Pumas Maldonado 1-1 Nord Energie FC (Guimaraes 78'; Forrest 37')

Canalave Dragons 1-1 Ajax Carloburgo (Leclerc 74'; Johansson-Bakvis 90'+1')


MD3:

With Eterna's defeat in Bezieres and Nacional's thrashing of Cerro, "La Academia" became sole leaders of this Clausura with 9 out of 9 points. Five teams (Bezieres, Tannenberg, Olympique, Pumas and Nord Energie) are in hot pursuit of the leaders, with 7 points. In the fight for UICA spots, Tannenberg's victory over direct rivals Marinos, put the "Citizens" in the last qualifying spot for the Globe Cup, and at the same time, brought Bezieres closer to the AFI spot. Chiquito's scoreless draw at the Dome against the Alligators, combined with Pumas' victory in Carloburgo against Tallin, put "Os Verdes" in the relegation zone, while the "Dragons" are in serious danger after their dangerous slip against Olympique. Hamanos, Vaud and Slateport are still stuck to the bottom three of the Clausura without a single point, and Leonard Gillet's job as coach of the Bulls is in danger.

AD Cerro 0-3 Nacional (Lecompte 16', Renato 57', Boisbriand 84')
Nord Energie FC 1-0 Slateport Bulls (Romero 48')
Fontvielle Impact 3-0 Pradera FC (Perrin 26', Bársenas 33', Rouillard 64')

Tannenberg FC 2-0 Marinos Metropolis (Pérez 19', Coleman 72')
AS Bezieres 3-0 Eterna Stars (Revault 13', Lamont 33', Hardy 60')
Ajax Carloburgo 3-1 AS Vaud (Palacios 26', Rogers 41', Ferreira 86'; Carrasso 73')
Canalave Dragons 0-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Montes 70')


MD4:

A late hat-trick by Sebastien Roudet against Caimanes (and Nacional's defeat at the hands of Nord Energie) put Pumas Maldonado on top of the Clausura with 10 points. Although they are not alone at the top, as Bezieres, Tannenberg and Nord Energie are snapping at their heels with 10 points as well. The Impact and the "Citizens" are trying to assure their presence in the Globe Cup (at least), while the Alligators, Marinos and Bezieres are going to be involved in a three-team race for the last two international berths. Slateport got a refreshing 1-0 win against last-placed Tallin, while the TFC and Bezieres sank Chiquito and Hamanos, respectively, in the relegation zone.

Nacional 1-2 Nord Energie FC (Boisbriand 58'; Gomes 32', Forrest 79')

Eterna Stars 3-1 Canalave Dragons (Mosquera 26', 89', Torres 58'; Thomas 72')
AS Vaud 2-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (Ortega 33', Payet 78')


MD5:

Bezieres defeated former leaders Pumas in order to become the new leaders in this Clausura with 13 points, with Tannenberg and Nord Energie only trailing on goal difference. Metropolis Alligators completed three scoreless draws in a row, after a boring nil-nil against Cerro, and are falling to the fourth place in the Overall Standings. Olympique's victory over Marinos brings the OF and Nord Energie closer to the AFI berth, currently held by the Mariners, while the Impact and Tannenberg are already starting to show their intentions to qualify to an UICA tournament once again. The crucial match between Dragons and Oranges ended in a draw which hurts both teams and keeps Chiquito with the ventilator.

Fontvielle Impact 1-1 Nacional (Romero 68'; Renato 14')
AC Tallin 0-2 Nord Energie FC (Andrews 26', 59')
Metropolis Alligators 0-0 AD Cerro

Olympique de Fontvielle 2-0 Marinos Metropolis (Filo 18', Simão 66' PK)
AS Vaud 0-0 Eterna Stars


MD6:

Tannenberg and Nord Energie took advantage of Bezieres' draw in Slateport in order to reach the top of the standings in this Clausura, with 16 points. Metropolis Alligators defeated Fontvielle Impact at the Stade de la Frontière, getting their second victory in six matches in this Clausura, while Marinos lost to the current Apertura champions, Eterna Stars, after giving them a hard time. Bezieres, Nord Energie and Marinos are fighting for the last spot to the Globe Cup and the AFI berth, while the HAC, Chiquito and the Dragons won their respective matches, exerting pressure over their rivals in the relegation zone: Pumas, Pradera, Ajax and Caimanes.

Hamanos Athletic Club 1-0 AS Vaud (Ramos 64')
Marinos Metropolis 0-1 Eterna Stars (Andrade 73')


MD7:

And Bezieres are back on top. "Les Rouges" returned to the first place thanks to their victory over former co-leaders Nord Energie, and Tannenberg's thrashing at the hands of Fontvielle Impact. The Stars are in second place with 16 points after their victory over Chiquito at the Alain Tramontin, and the Alligators spoiled Nacional's party with their 3-1 victory in the "Little Metropolitan Derby". The Dragons got an important win against Slateport that helps them get away from the relegation zone, while Pumas and Pradera were left in real danger, as Chiquito are now trailing Pradera by one point and Pumas by two points.

Metropolis Alligators 3-1 Nacional (Macías 16', Londoño 37', Ospina 42'; Boisbriand 64')
SC Caimanes 0-0 AC Tallin
Tannenberg FC 1-4 Fontvielle Impact (Ruiz 53'; Gignac 26', de Roux 39', Bársenas 58', Romero 75')

Marinos Metropolis 2-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Oliveira 37', Aguilar 71'; Perea 78')


MD8:

Bezieres are still as leaders of this Clausura after their victory in Carloburgo over Tallin. "Les Rouges" have not lost a single match so far, but three teams are escorting them: Nord Energie, Eterna Stars and Tannenberg. The "National Derby" played between the MA and Tannenberg ended with a victory for the "Citizens", while the MA lost their unbeaten streak of seven matches. Fontvielle Impact are still strong in UICA qualification places, while Marinos and Nord Energie are fighting for the AFI spot. Hamanos' victory in Corumbá tightened even more the fight in the relegation zone, while Pradera lost a chance to get away of that zone.

Nacional 2-1 SC Caimanes (Lecompte 3', Márquez 75'; Araújo 51')
Metropolis Alligators 1-2 Tannenberg FC (Koit 24'; Peterson 45'+2', Ruiz 86')
AC Tallin 0-3 AS Bezieres (Lamont 15', Uribe 37', Vercoutre 67')

Chiquito FC 2-3 Hamanos Athletic Club (Castroneves 16', Barrera 86'; Perea 9', Douglas 29', Ramos 58')


MD9:

Things don't seem to have changed at the top. Bezieres are still in first place, Tannenberg, Nord Energie and the Stars as escorts and the others are being left behind. Nord Energie took advantage of Marinos' loss in the "Blue Derby" in order to reach the sixth place in the Overall Standings and the AFI berth and it seems the "Blood and Gold" are now aiming to the GC spot currently held by the Alligators. However, the relegation zone moved a lot, as Chiquito's and Hamanos' victories in their respective regional derbies made their rivals (Pumas and Pradera) move to the red zone in their place. Tallin are still last and close to certify their relegation, however, that's not a novelty...

Tannenberg FC 2-1 Nacional (Peterson 37', Ruiz 82'; Renato 65')
AS Bezieres 4-1 SC Caimanes (Revault 15', Lamont 38', Hardy 72', Uribe 90'+3'; Souza 58')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-4 Metropolis Alligators (Ferreira 75'; Botero 25', Macías 32', Ospina 54', Koit 80')
Canalave Dragons 1-1 AC Tallin (Leclerc 20'; Galtier 88')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-1 Fontvielle Impact (Puel 24', Bársenas 78')
AS Vaud 0-1 Nord Energie FC (Andrews 73')
Eterna Stars 3-0 AD Cerro (Mosquera 15', Andrade 26', Londoño 72')
Marinos Metropolis 0-1 Slateport Bulls (Varga 39')
Hamanos Athletic Club 3-1 Pradera FC (Quintero 16', Douglas 49', Ramos 87'; Ruiz 39')
Chiquito FC 3-2 Pumas Maldonado (Gomes 37', Barrera 56', Torres 78'; Renan 27', Texeira 63')


MD10:

After 10 matches in this Clausura, Bezieres are leaders with 26 points and an unbeaten streak that has lasted for 19 matches since the last Apertura. Tannenberg FC are second, three points behind the "Rouges" and Eterna Stars and Nord Energie FC are also trying to get closer to the leaders. Currently, Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg and Metropolis Alligators would qualify to the Globe Cup, and Marinos Metropolis, Nord Energie and Olympique de Fontvielle are fighting for the Aeropag spot. In the relegation zone, we have eight teams (Canalave, Cerro, Hamanos, Caimanes, Ajax, Pumas, Chiquito and Pradera) in danger of relegation while Tallin are close to return to the B-League, the place where they actually belong.

HYDRO SUPER LEAGUE - THIRTEENTH SEASON (PART IV OF IV)


Clausura Tournament

MD11:

Bezieres are still at the top of this Clausura with 29 points, after their victory in Canalave over the Dragons, who are still in problems with relegation. Tannenberg and both teams from Fontvielle are trailing the leaders by 6 points, but none of them have lost the hope. The Stars lost their third National Derby in the season, this time against the Alligators at the Alain Tramontin, and giving the MA the chance to reamin in UICA qualifying places and Nord Energie are losing terrain in the fight for the AFI spot. Meanwhile, in the relegation zone, four teams (Pradera, Caimanes, Ajax and Pumas) are tied with 29 points, and Chiquito's and Pradera's victories made Ajax and Pumas go to the relegation zone. Hamanos and Cerro are also in problems since Ajax are trailing them by just two points.

Ajax Carloburgo 1-2 Nacional (Palacios 76'; Ruiz 13', Márquez 19')
Canalave Dragons 1-2 AS Bezieres (Thomas 28'; Uribe 53', Hardy 77')
Olympique de Fontvielle 1-0 Tannenberg FC (Filo 65')
AS Vaud 2-1 SC Caimanes (Sandro 16', Payet 77'; Rosero 35')
Eterna Stars 0-2 Metropolis Alligators (Koit 27', Londoño 73')
Marinos Metropolis 2-0 AC Tallin (Ricardinho 32', Aguilar 53')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-1 Fontvielle Impact (de Roux 13')
Chiquito FC 1-0 Nord Energie FC (Torres 72')
Pumas Maldonado 1-1 AD Cerro (Roudet 84'; Riascos 12')
Pradera FC 2-1 Slateport Bulls (Ruiz 62', Phillips 86'; Varga 33')


MD12:

Despite Vaud managed to get a point from the Stade Jules Picot, Bezieres are still in first place in this Clausura with 30 points. However, both teams from Fontvielle reduced the difference with the "Rouges" to four points. It seems the Impact, the "Citizens" and the "Alligators" are the ones who will qualify to the Globe Cup, while Marinos and Olympique are involved in a two-teams race for the AFI berth. Despite Ajax and Pumas lost their respective matches to the teams from Fontvielle, they still hold to hope to get out of the relegation zone, as Caimanes and Hamanos were unable to defeat Marinos and the MA.

Nacional 2-2 Canalave Dragons (Renato 25', Lecompte 78'; Jones 37', Leclerc 88')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-2 Olympique de Fontvielle (Johansson-Bakvis 36'; Filo 22', Simão 53')
AS Bezieres 1-1 AS Vaud (Revault 56'; Carrasso 75')
Tannenberg FC 1-1 Eterna Stars (Pérez 39'; Londoño 71')
SC Caimanes 2-2 Marinos Metropolis (Tiago Neves 29', Anthony 74'; Acuña 38', Bourgault 45'+2')
Metropolis Alligators 1-0 Hamanos Athletic Club (Macías 49')
AC Tallin 0-1 Chiquito FC (Dickens 55')
Fontvielle Impact 2-1 Pumas Maldonado (Gignac 23', Bársenas 86'; Renan 32')
Nord Energie FC 0-2 Pradera FC (Tello 6', 78')
AD Cerro 1-3 Slateport Bulls (Galletti 29'; Velasco 19', Robichaud 43', Quintero 76')


MD13:

Bezieres' tenth victory in the Clausura helped them stay at the top of the standings with 33 points, while Olympique got rid of Nacional in order to stay close to "Les Rouges", and at the same time, snatch the AFI berth from Marinos. There were no changes in the UICA spots, and Tallin became the first relegated team of the season after losing to Meadow rivals Pradera. The Green-Whites, Chiquito, Canalave Dragons and Cerro are slowly getting away from the relegation zone, Ajax got an important win in Eterna City, with a goal by Per-Olivier Johansson-Bakvis being enough to frustrate the Stars, and Caimanes, Hamanos and Pumas are in a difficult situation.

Olympique de Fontvielle 2-0 Nacional (Montes 16', Santos 66')
AS Vaud 1-3 Canalave Dragons (Payet 29'; Leclerc 18', Silva 53', McAllister 67')
Eterna Stars 2-3 Ajax Carloburgo (Mosquera 24', Reyes 57'; Ferreira 36', Rivas 62', Johansson-Bakvis 89')
Marinos Metropolis 0-2 AS Bezieres (Hardy 34', Revault 72')
Hamanos Athletic Club 0-4 Tannenberg FC (Peterson 14', Ruiz 33', 79', Pérez 60')
Chiquito FC 2-1 SC Caimanes (Barrera 25', Torres 57'; Araújo 77')
Pumas Maldonado 1-2 Metropolis Alligators (Roudet 41'; Londoño 19', Botero 85')
Pradera FC 2-0 AC Tallin (Tello 27', Borrero 73')
Slateport Bulls 1-0 Fontvielle Impact (Robichaud 80')
AD Cerro 1-0 Nord Energie FC (Riascos 34')


MD14:

With their victory over Chiquito, Bezieres have completed 23 matches unbeaten and remain as leaders with 36 points, however, Tannenberg's hopes are not over yet, and with their win over Pumas at White Meadow Arena, they trail "Les Rouges" by six points. Marinos Metropolis and Olympique de Fontvielle are still in a fight for the AFI spot, Nord Energie are left behind, while Slateport Bulls and Nacional still have slim hopes of travelling to Aeropag. It seems the fight against relegation will involve three teams from now on, as Pradera, Chiquito, the Dragons, Cerro and Ajax are getting away from that zone and leaving Hamanos, Caimanes and Pumas with the need of saving themselves.

Nacional 2-1 AS Vaud (Renato 27', Boisbriand 64'; Payet 83' PK)
Olympique de Fontvielle 0-2 Eterna Stars (Reyes 19', Velmont 78' OG)
Canalave Dragons 0-2 Marinos Metropolis (Aguilar 37', 72')
Ajax Carloburgo 1-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Rogers 19'; Douglas 78')
AS Bezieres 2-0 Chiquito FC (Collazos 21', Uribe 76')
Tannenberg FC 3-0 Pumas Maldonado (Coleman 15', Pérez 38', Peterson 76')
SC Caimanes 1-2 Pradera FC (Souza 65'; Ruiz 38', Castro 82')
Metropolis Alligators 0-1 Slateport Bulls (Varga 79')
AC Tallin 2-2 AD Cerro (Aldemar 24', 73'; Alvarado 25', Robson 56')
Fontvielle Impact 1-1 Nord Energie FC (Gignac 10'; Andrews 77')


MD15:

Bezieres got closer to the Clausura title with their thrashing of Pradera at the Gobernador Villa, and Olympique's loss to Hamanos in the same stadium. However, Tannenberg are still exerting pressure with their valuable win in Slateport, which practically ends every hope of qualification to the AFI for the Bulls. "Rouges", "Bleus" and "Citizens" need three points more to assure their presence in UICA tournaments, while the fight for the AFI spot seems to be reduced to Marinos and Olympique. On the red zone, Caimanes and Pumas are suffering, while Hamanos felt relieved after their victory against the OF.

Eterna Stars 1-2 Nacional (Mosquera 31'; Ruiz 64', Márquez 75')
Marinos Metropolis 1-1 AS Vaud (Bourgault 72'; Ortega 26')
Hamanos Athletic Club 2-0 Olympique de Fontvielle (Ramos 28', Perea 78')
Chiquito FC 1-1 Canalave Dragons (Dickens 29'; Thomas 75')
Pumas Maldonado 0-2 Ajax Carloburgo (Ferreira 29', Palacios 68')
Pradera FC 0-4 AS Bezieres (Revault 37', Vercoutre 40', Lamont 69', Uribe 85')
Slateport Bulls 0-1 Tannenberg FC (Peterson 77')
AD Cerro 0-0 SC Caimanes
Nord Energie FC 0-4 Metropolis Alligators (Koit 18', Ospina 30', Londoño 45'+1', Macías 88')
Fontvielle Impact 1-0 AC Tallin (Romero 7')


MD16:

Bezieres, Tannenberg and the Impact are the only three teams with chances to win the Clausura after this round, and their victories also qualified them to UICA competitions next season. Bezieres might become winners of the Clausura if they defeat the Impact next week. The Alligators' surprising loss against last-placed Tallin and Marinos' and Olympique's victories opened the fight for the last Globe Cup spot, which was supposed to be for the MA. Meanwhile, Pumas and Caimanes lost once more and are now with a foot in the B-League. Pumas may join Tallin in the next B-League season if they do not defeat the Stars and Hamanos defeat Nacional.

Nacional 0-3 Marinos Metropolis (Oliveira 14', Aguilar 39', Patiño 67')
Eterna Stars 4-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Mosquera 33', 76', 85', Andrade 57'; Douglas 80')
AS Vaud 2-1 Chiquito FC (Ortega 24', Carrasso 72'; Dickens 8')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-0 Pumas Maldonado (Filo 14', Santos 38')
Canalave Dragons 0-3 Pradera FC (Tello 11', Ruiz 53', Borrero 79')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-1 Slateport Bulls (Robichaud 38')
AS Bezieres 3-2 AD Cerro (Hardy 19', Revault 53', Lamont 78'; Galletti 22', Villarraga 39')
Tannenberg FC 2-1 Nord Energie FC (Ruiz 30', Pérez 64'; Forrest 87')
SC Caimanes 1-3 Fontvielle Impact (Souza 24'; Gignac 11', Bársenas 46', de Roux 83')
Metropolis Alligators 0-1 AC Tallin (Galtier 85')


MD17:

Despite their loss in the "Derby du Foix" to the Impact, Bezieres are closer than ever to the Clausura title, being three points clear of Tannenberg and six points clear of the Impact. The Alligators thrashed Caimanes in the "Reptilian Derby", getting even closer to the Globe Cup and sinking Caimanes in the relegation zone. Marinos and Olympique are levelled in points in the sixth place for the AFI berth, and four teams are still with chances of relegation: the Dragons, Hamanos, Caimanes and Pumas, although this affair may be solved next week if "Jacarés" and "Pumas" lose.

Hamanos Athletic Club 0-1 Nacional (Boisbriand 81')
Chiquito FC 0-0 Marinos Metropolis
Pumas Maldonado 0-2 Eterna Stars (Londoño 22', Mosquera 57')
Pradera FC 0-0 AS Vaud
Slateport Bulls 0-1 Olympique de Fontvielle (Simão 53' PK)
AD Cerro 2-0 Canalave Dragons (Vargas 23', Riascos 63')
Nord Energie FC 1-2 Ajax Carloburgo (Gomes 43', Rogers 29', Johansson-Bakvis 90'+2')
Fontvielle Impact 3-2 AS Bezieres (Perrin 51', Gignac 74', Bársenas 88'; Hardy 16', Uribe 39')
AC Tallin 1-2 Tannenberg FC (Pereira 17'; Ruiz 14', 79')
Metropolis Alligators 5-2 SC Caimanes (Koit 34', 78', 90'+4', Ospina 53', Gutiérrez 62'; Souza 23', Beltrán 71')


MD18:

Bezieres and Tannenberg will play next week this Clausura's "title match", as their respective draws left them as the only teams with chances to win this tournament and the last TQCC berth. Metropolis Alligators only needed a scoreless draw in Bezieres to return to the Globe Cup, and Olympique de Fontvielle and Marinos will fight for the AFI berth. The HAC sentenced Pumas with their 2-0 victory in Pradera, which at the same time also made Caimanes' draw in Carloburgo useless, sending them to the B-League. Campo Grande and all the Caimanes fans regret this tragedy for one of the most popular clubs in Valladares.

Nacional 0-1 Chiquito FC (Castroneves 77')
Hamanos Athletic Club 2-0 Pumas Maldonado (Ramos 16', Perea 83')
Marinos Metropolis 0-0 Pradera FC
Eterna Stars 2-2 Slateport Bulls (Andrade 27', Reyes 88'; Velasco 36', Varga 67')
AS Vaud 1-2 AD Cerro (Payet 28'; Riascos 75', Galletti 87')
Olympique de Fontvielle 2-1 Nord Energie FC (Puel 23', Santos 44'; Andrews 76')
Canalave Dragons 2-2 Fontvielle Impact (Leclerc 27', Thomas 80'; Gignac 41', Romero 68')
Ajax Carloburgo 0-1 AC Tallin (Galtier 56')
AS Bezieres 0-0 Metropolis Alligators
Tannenberg FC 1-1 SC Caimanes (Peterson 27'; Souza 54')


MD19:

Some matches of no importance at all, all of them played on Saturday evening...

Pumas Maldonado 1-3 Nacional (Nilton 90'+1'; Lecompte 15', Boisbriand 36', Renato 54')
Pradera FC 1-2 Chiquito FC (Tello 57'; Torres 17', Barrera 70')
Slateport Bulls 0-1 Hamanos Athletic Club (Douglas 64')
Nord Energie FC 1-3 Eterna Stars (Forrest 49'; Londoño 32', Andrade 67', 86')
Fontvielle Impact 1-1 AS Vaud (Gignac 28', Payet 73')
Metropolis Alligators 3-0 Canalave Dragons (Botero 11', Macías 55', Ospina 78')
SC Caimanes 3-2 Ajax Carloburgo (Tiago Neves 25', Anthony 50', Rosero 83'; Rivas 8', Ferreira 48')


And the final day has come, with three interesting matches:

AD Cerro 1-2 Marinos Metropolis (Vargas 25', Aguilar 54', 88')
AC Tallin 0-4 Olympique de Fontvielle (Filo 17', Simão 38', 77', Santos 64')
Tannenberg FC 1-5 AS Bezieres (Pérez 12'; Hardy 24', Revault 43', Uribe 57', 78', 90'+1')


With a great hat-trick by José Miguel Uribe in the second half of the match between Tannenberg and Bezieres, "Les Rouges" crowned themselves as champions of the Clausura, qualifying to the TQCC in the process. The fight for the AFI spot between Olympique and Marinos ended with the OF as the ones who will travel to Aeropag, and the relegated sides had poor attendances in their last match in this Super League. Specially Caimanes, who defeated Ajax in front of 654 people. And, here are the standings:

VALLADAR SUPER LEAGUE - FOURTEENTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART I)


With Bezieres' third title already left behind, the Valladar Super League starts its fourteenth season with some changes. First, the Super League has no sponsor as of yet, since EnergyValladares and its brand Hydro did not want to renew the sponsorship agreement with the VFA and it is believed that the VFA will be looking for international companies interested in sponsoring one of the fastest-growing football leagues in the multiverse. Second, there could be four relegated sides instead of three. Yes, FOUR. The VFA decided to introduce a promotion/relegation play-off between the fourth bottom team in the Super League and the B-League play-off runners-up. So, in addition to the usual three relegated sides, the 17th team at the end of the season could be sent to the B-League as well. More excitement is expected with this move.

This season we think there isn't a "Big 3" any longer, but a "Big 5" instead. In addition to "Alligators", "Citizens" and "Stars", we can add Fontvielle Impact and Bezieres to the list of "Big" teams. However, teams like Marinos Metropolis, Slateport Bulls, Olympique de Fontvielle and Nacional are ready to give a shock and spoil the party for the "Big 5", while Fauxham, Montreux and Valencia are looking for staying in the Super League for VSL 15. So, let's begin with our international review:

INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE:

And once again, the Alligators showed they are the best team of Valladares at UICA level. Although the MA have been unable to show their whole power in their domestic championship, things are different when it comes to the Globe Cup, and they managed to keep the valladar flag flying until the knockout stages. Bezieres' performance in both the TQCC and the GC was just decent, Fontvielle Impact fell victim to luck and Eterna Stars' and Tannenberg FC's international inexperience returned both teams to reality. Anyways, let's start this international roundup with the TQCC:

TakilQuip Champions' Cup:

AS Bezieres: The valladar champions were drawn in a tough Group G, along with Cafundelense powerhouses Petardos S/A, Ad'ihani heavyweights Tallyn Rovers and Babbage champions OGC Nancy. Although the "Rouges" got important home wins over Petardos and Nancy, their performance outside the Jules Picot was awful, losing every match played. A 0-3 loss to Tallyn in Bezieres made "Les Rouges" end in third place with six points, sending them to the Globe Cup.

Eterna Stars: The Stars' history in the TQCC was pathetic. That history started -and ended- in the second preliminary round for non-champions, where they faced Alianza Ciruelas from Aguazul. Ciruelas easily edged past the valladar runners-up with a 1-2 victory at the Alain Tramontin and a 1-0 victory in Aguazul, thus sending the Stars to the Globe Cup's qualifying stage.

Globe Cup:

Metropolis Alligators: The MA started their successful international campaign in the Globe Cup's preliminary stage, where they easily overpowered Albundanian side Illinopolis FC. Eventually, the Alligators managed to make it to the group stage after leaving Lodgertia United and Kassel County Rangers behind in the eliminatory and qualifying stages. In the group stage, things went good for the Alligators as they won all their matches (including a 7-1 thrashing of FC Ruhstad at the National Stadium) with a sole defeat to James Conolly SC on the road, finishing at top of Group G with 15 points. In the round of 32, the Alligators faced and eliminated another Albundanian team: Chicago Nuevo SC, however, the road ended in the following round with two losses to América from Cafundeu. Despite their good performance in the Globe Cup, the Alligators disappointed their faithful with their early elimination from the Cygnus Cup. But we don't talk about that.

Tannenberg FC: Maybe Tannenberg only wanted to compete with their arch-rivals Eterna Stars in the "Worst International Embarrassment" category this season, adding another Globe Cup failure to their archives. Despite they managed to hold Club Stein-los to a two-all draw in Pasarga, the match at the shiny White Meadow Arena ended terribly for the TFC, with Club Stein-los defeating the Citizens and kicking them out of the tournament in the eliminatory stage.

Eterna Stars: The Stars completed their disastrous UICA season with another dull performance in the Globe Cup. Despite Eterna tried to be a demanding challenge for Cordubovica Falcons, the Paripanan team were far stronger and left the Stars at the doors of the group stage. Who were the worst valladar representatives in UICA competitions? Who deserves the "Wooden Spoon Award" the most? "Citizens" or "Stars"? Place your bets...

Fontvielle Impact: Fontvielle Impact had an "easy" start for their Globe Cup campaign, as they easily overpowered Warkus side Nyaky FC in the qualifying stage, qualifying to the group stage and being drawn in a tough Group J, with CF Mont-Pluie, Ranca Toco and Natestadt Nationalisten as their rivals. Despite the Impact beat the Ad'ihani and Paripanan sides at home, they ended in third place in their group since they lost all their three away matches and the Cafundelense team left Valladares with three points as well, certifying the elimination for the "Bleus".

Chronowire Series B Champions' Cup:

FC Fauxham: Fauxham, as the reigning B-League champions, finally managed to make it to the group stages of the SBCC, with a 3-1 victory over Canton United on aggregate score. They also managed to end in second place in their group, with 7 points and home victories over Seansburgh Cougars and Stanton Town. However, the fairy tale for Fauxham had a harsh end at the hands of the eventual runners-up New Ireland, with a draw in Fauxham and a loss in Sorthern Northland. The Green-Whites were decent rivals, though.

AS Montreux: The "Herons" also managed to qualify to the SBCC group stages for their first time ever, although they had to fight more than expected, only knocking out Jhanna City on away goals. Montreux managed to hold their own in what was expected to be a tough group for them, finishing in second place ahead strong teams like Zarbli's Zug-Zug and Estresse Intenso's Camisa Dez and behind Sorthern Northland's An Blascaod Mór. However, Montreux's history in the SBCC knockout stage was also marked by one of the eventual finalists of the competition getting in the team's way, as Tênis Clube, who had already made Fauxham suffer, managed to end the road for the B-League runners-up. At least the Cafundelenses were the eventual champions, so the Montreux fans can say they lost to the champions.

Valencia FC: Loose, loose, loose...the Valencia we saw during the last SBCC was not the same Valencia that reached the semifinals two seasons ago, as their campaign this time was short and unmemorable. Parakeet FC from Delaclava defeated the Púrpura two-nil in Delaclava, result that was enough to send the Delaclav team through, as Valencia's reaction in the second leg was useless.

Hoxford Rovers: The Rovers, who moved to the cold Adelaide region before the SBCC's start, were not that successful this time in the competition. In the preliminary round, Chapeleta were not rivals for the Rovers, who won 4-1 on aggregate score, however, An Blascaod Mór crushed the valladar hopes in the playoff stage, as they defeated the Rovers twice, knocking them out of the competition in the process.

And now, we will present the 20 teams competing in this edition of the Super League:

(Key: Best three players in bold, foreigners in italics)

AD CERRO: Tavarello - Garcés, Brown, Tamayo, Cortés - Alvarado (C), Villarraga, Robson, Vargas - Riascos, Galletti
Full Name: Asociación Deportiva Cerro
Nickname (s): "Los Celestes" (The Sky Blues), "El Tigre" (The Tiger)
Stadium: Alexander I National Stadium, Swangard, District of Metropolis (Cap. 85,000)
Sponsor (s): Carvajal Motors (Automobile manufacturer)
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt and black shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in blue
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Gerard Villeneuve
Director of Football: Alberto Salas
Coach: Gilbert Favrè
Last Season and Objectives: Cerro had a difficult season, with a mediocre Clausura and being facing danger of relegation at some moments. That fourteenth place should make the Cerro's Board think about their chances of survival in the Super League, but they have stated they want to fight for a Top-10 place. The task seems difficult, but not impossible.
Rivalries: Nacional, Metropolis Alligators, Marinos Metropolis (Little Metropolitan Derby)
Fans: Cerro's fanbase is passionate, despite being small. Their fanbase is too small compared to the ones of teams like Marinos and Metropolis Alligators, however, Cerro's fans are as noisy as them. Their mentality towards the team is not constant, and tends to change at any time: if Cerro wins, they want to worship even the cleaners of the team's headquarters, but if the team loses, they want to destroy everything.
Main Supporters Groups: "Los Tigres del Sur" ("The Southern Tigers" - 1,349 members), "Amenaza Celeste" ("Sky-Blue Menace" - 987 members)
Prediction: 14th. "Los Celestes" are still unable to convince our pundits about their goals, and they think Cerro will still be stuck to the mid-low zone of the standings, hence the fourteenth place once again.

AJAX CARLOBURGO: Johnson - Russell, Monterrubio, Pereira, Castro - Rivas (C), Ortega, Ferreira - Rogers, Londoño, Palacios
Full Name: Football Club Ajax Carloburgo
Nickname (s): "The Red-Whites", "The Inmigrants"
Stadium: Olympic Stadium, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 62,000)
Sponsor (s): QuantaLith (Aerospace), Banco Latino (Financial services)
Home Kit: White shirt with a broad, vertical red stripe and white shorts
Away Kit: All indigo blue with details in yellow
Third/GK Kit: All yellow with details in black
Chairman: Joseph Tacher
Director of Football: Gustavo Suárez
Coach: Anthony Clark
Last Season and Objectives: Despite their constant stumbles last season, Ajax were able to keep their place in the Super League, ending in a scary sixteenth place. However, the future for them doesn't seem to be bright, as their best player Per-Olivier Johansson-Bakvis elected to leave Parken Road for title contenders Metropolis Alligators. The Board want the team to stay away from relegation places, let's see if their squad are strong enough to overcome the challenge.
Rivalries: Tannenberg FC (Carloburgo Derby)
Fans: Despite being a small fanbase (thanks to the overwhelming support to Tannenberg FC), the few Ajax's fans are cheerful and enthusiastic. Most of them are wealthy people from Carloburgo and belong to the "High Society" of the city. Therefore, don't expect to see them destroying everything when the team is defeated or committing vandalism. Some of them are foreigners already established in the city, but they dislike vandalism as well. Ajax's fanbase can be considered as the "quietest fanbase in the Valladar Super League".
Main Supporters Groups: "The Foreigners" (692 members), "A-Sector" (419 members)
Prediction: 16th. The Inmigrants' team is getting weaker and older every season, and the pundits are sure Ajax will find lots of difficulties this season to keep their place in the Super League.

AS BEZIERES: Moore - Lores, Alzach, Rubiano, Rousseau - Lamont (C), Vercoutre, Hardy - Revault, Collazos, Uribe
Full Name: Association Sportive de Bezieres
Nickname (s): "Les Rouges" (The Reds), "Les Démons" (The Devils), "Le ASB" (The ASB), "Les Aigles" ("The Eagles")
Stadium: Stade Jules Picot, Bezieres, Foix (Cap. 38,000)
Sponsor (s): Hydro-Foix (Electric utilities)
Home Kit: Red shirt and white shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in ocher
Third/GK Kit: All indigo blue with details in ocher
Chairman: Rèmy de Saint-Lorent
Director of Football: Luis da Lima
Coach: Jean-Pierre Aulas
Last Season and Objectives: The current Canalave Crown holders, who had an acceptable Apertura and a great Clausura, come to this new season as favorites once again. It is more than obvious that "Les Rouges" want to end with Fontvielle Impact's reign as the winningest team in the Super League, and the title will be a priority for the Board once again. However, the rivals will likely want to avoid another title won by Bezieres.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact (Derby du Foix), Chiquito FC (Illirian Big Derby), Metropolis Alligators
Fans: AS Bezieres have a strong fanbase in the city of Bezieres and its outskirts. Most of their fans are loyal to the team and do not tend to go nuts after a defeat. They do not tend to feel themselves provoked, and most of them are peaceful fans just wanting to cheer their team.
Main Supporters Groups: "Le Chaudron Rouge" ("The Red Cauldron" - 2,802 members), "Démons du Nord" ("North Devils" - 2,210 members)
Prediction: 2nd. The pundits don't think Bezieres will be able to retain their title, not because their squad is lame but because there is a team that will have a better and more capable squad this time.

AS MONTREUX: de la Rúa - Ramón, Márquez, Faurand, Chamoun (C) - Villanova, Dentinho, Luciano, Pereira, Alzate - Stevenson
Full Name: Association Sportive de Montreux Football Club
Nickname (s): "Les Hérons" (The Herons)
Stadium: Stade Micoud, Montreux, Foix (Cap. 15,200)
Sponsor (s): Le Nation (Newspaper)
Home Kit: White shirt with details in red and white shorts
Away Kit: All red
Third/GK Kit: Blue shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Ernest Correa
Director of Football: Jean Allenan
Coach: Charles Molineaux
Last Season and Objectives: And we present the first of our "yo-yo" teams: Montreux, who ended in a decent second place the last B-League season. Being a promoted team, Les Hérons will likely stick to the objective of "saving themselves from relegation". But with four possible relegation places this time, Montreux's mission will be a bit more difficult.
Rivalries: AS Vaud, Chiquito FC (Illirian Little Derby)
Fans: Few, silent and sometimes loyal. That phrase can perfectly describe Montreux's fans. No need to say more.
Main Supporters Groups: Hérons Fidèles (765 members)
Prediction: 19th. Montreux may be able to give shocks to some teams this season, but the pundits think they won't be able to escape from relegation.

AS VAUD: Francis - Jones, Richardson, Velmont, Silvera - Ruiz, Díaz, Sandro (C), Ortega - Carrasso, Payet
Full Name: Association Sportive de Vaud-Gatineau
Nickname (s): "Les Étudiants" (The Students)
Stadium: Stade Omnisports Gatineau, Gatineau, Foix (Cap. 17,500)
Sponsor (s): ThermoClean (Thermal power)
Home Kit: Blue shirt with black vertical stripes and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with blue vertical stripes and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Lucien Delmont
Director of Football: Fabrice Fevrier
Coach: Alberto Vega
Last Season and Objectives: Vaud managed to achieve a decent tenth place last season, and the Board are confident enough they will be able to achieve something better this upcoming season. "Les Étudiants" are now one of the wildcard teams in this league and any placement inside the Top-10 will be something excellent for them.
Rivalries: AS Montreux (Illirian Little Derby), Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Vaud's fans tend to get mad at the referees when they when it's a fault favoring the opposing team or when they start to feel that the referee begins to "favour" the other team. They tend to fill the small Stade Mouilere to its full, even if the team is last in the standings. It can be concluded that they are loyal and passionate fans who do not tolerate anything against their team.
Main Supporters Groups: "Les Élèves-Unis" ("The United Students" - 992 members), "Ultras Vaud" (519 members)
Prediction: 10th. The wildcard team will be doomed to end tenth once again. The pundits consider Vaud as a team capable to give some shocks to the favorites, but nothing more than that.

CANALAVE DRAGONS: Vega (C) - Perea, Sánchez, Aljure, Lacombe - Carreño, Silva, Jones, McAllister - Thomas, Leclerc
Full Name: Canalave Dragons Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Dragons"
Stadium: Dragon Stadium, Canalave, Eterna (Cap. 35,000)
Sponsor (s): Mercantil Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: Red shirt with white vertical stripes and red shorts
Away Kit: All blue
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Efraín Guzmán
Director of Football: George Smith
Coach: Yves Rexach
Last Season and Objectives: The Dragons are coming from bad to worse every season. The last season, they ended in the dishonorable seventeenth place, just two points clear of the relegation zone. In order not to repeat what happened to Caimanes last season, Efraín Guzmán has decided to move his chips and brought the successful Yves Rexach to the Dragons' "pressure cooker". They say that "New broom sweeps clean" but that is about to be proved.
Rivalries: Eterna Stars (Eterna Derby), Slateport Bulls, Nord Energie FC
Fans: Canalave's fans are passionate and loyal. They consider themselves as the "12th player", due to their (sometimes extreme) fanatism. With their noise and their harangues against visiting teams, they are responsible for creating the worst possible environment for the visitors at the Dragon Stadium. Canalave's fans were considered the "most loyal fans" during the last editions of the Super League.
Main Supporters Groups: "Red Passion" (1,138 members), "Dragon Army" (1,050 members)
Prediction: 13th. The pundits think Mr. Rexach will help the Dragons escape from the relegation zone, but a thirteenth place will be the best thing he will be able to do for now.

CHIQUITO FC: Williams - Sinclair, Hortúa, Rosero, Cifuentes (C) - Castroneves, Gomes, Dickens - Barrera, Méndez, Torres
Full Name: Corporación Deportiva Chiquito Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Os Verdes" (The Greens)
Stadium: Arena do Jacaré, Corumbá, Chiquito (Cap. 22,000)
Sponsor (s): AlfaCredit Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in yellow and green shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in green and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: Blue shirt and black shorts
Chairman: Nazário Salgado
Director of Football: Alexis Conte
Coach: John Clark
Last Season and Objectives: The Project Castronovo ended in a disaster for Chiquito during the last Apertura, however "Os Verdes" managed to recover and ended in an acceptable twelfth place last season. Chiquito will have a brand-new coach for this season, as John Clark, with experience in the National Team accepted the offer to coach them. The Board's main aspiration will be a place inside the Top-10, and the pressure will be bigger since they will be the only representative from the Chiquito state in the Super League.
Rivalries: AS Bezieres (Illirian Big Derby), AS Montreux (Illirian Little Derby)
Fans: Chiquito's fans are among the most passionate fans in the Super League. However, they tend to insult their own players if they feel the players are not showing any sacrifice in the game.
Main Supporters Groups: "Os Assassinos" ("The Killers" - 1,838 members), "Estrela Verde" ("Green Star" - 1,487 members)
Prediction: 12th. The pundits said Chiquito will have a decent season but that won't be enough to get them out of twelfth place.

ETERNA STARS: Mezaguez - Lannoy, Calheira, Palacios, Millers - Rivas, Reyes (C), Andrade, Torres - Mosquera, Londoño
Full Name: Eterna Stars Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Stars", "The Yellows"
Stadium: Alain Tramontin Stadium, Eterna City, Eterna (Cap. 55,000)
Sponsor (s): Bavaria (Beverages) - KolaLoka brand displayed in shirt
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with white shorts
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Maurice Dufrasne
Director of Football: Joseph Lennon
Coach: Peter Holmes
Last Season and Objectives: A second place last season seemed enough to calm down the impatient Eterna fans. But their rage arose once again with their disappointing participation in UICA competitions, so the Board and the squad will be focused on the second title for the team and a decent participation in UICA this time.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators and Tannenberg FC (National Derby), Slateport Bulls and Canalave Dragons (Eterna Derby), Fontvielle Impact, AS Bezieres
Fans: Eterna Stars have an important fanbase widespread in the whole nation, but most of them are concentrated in Eterna City and its outskirts. They tend to be passionate, loyal, and aggressive and intolerant with other fans, specially with Metropolis Alligators', Tannenberg's, Slateport's, and Fontvielle's fans.
Main Supporters Groups: "South End Eterna" (3,053 members), "The Stellar Brigade" (2,977 members)
Prediction: 7th. The Stars' uninspiring performance in last season's UICA competitions made the pundits doubt about the Stars' true potential and therefore they say it's better for the Stars and for our national coëfficient tally that they don't manage to qualify for at least the Globe Cup.

FC FAUXHAM: Bravo - Williams, Román, Gillard (C), Giraldo - Hatchet, Bourillon, Gourcuff - Salgado, Neill, Alves
Full Name: Football Club Fauxham
Nickname (s): "The Green-Whites"
Stadium: Frank Clair Stadium, Fauxham, Eterna (Cap. 15,500)
Sponsor (s): TeleFax (Telecommunications)
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in white and white shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in green and green shorts
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Frank Janot
Manager: Samuel Carrera
Coach: Geoffrey Roudault
Last Season and Objectives: The Green-Whites return to the Super League as B-League champions, which will surely give them great expectations for the upcoming season. Fauxham's Board have stated they want the team to avoid relegation but the challenge will be demanding this time with four teams in danger of relegation.
Rivalries: Nord Energie FC, Eterna Stars, Canalave Dragons
Fans: FC Fauxham have few fans, since most people in Fauxham are followers of either Eterna Stars or Metropolis Alligators. However, this small fanbase is cheerful and loyal to their team. Usually, there are more than 12,000 local fans cheering their team at the Frank Clair when Fauxham plays at home.
Main Supporters Groups: "Green Passion" (320 members)
Prediction: 20th. No mistake. Fauxham are the weakest team in the league and the pundits don't believe that they are able to keep their place for the next season.

FONTVIELLE IMPACT: Lacombe - Lavoisier, Salazar, Millar, Demont - Perrin, Rouillard, Romero (C), Bársenas - Gignac, de Roux
Full Name: Impact de Fontvielle Football Club
Nickname (s): "Les Bleus" (The Blues), "The Impact"
Stadium: Stade de la Frontière, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 36,500)
Sponsor (s): Tamount Group (Food), Ville de Fontvielle Council (Local government)
Home Kit: All blue with details in white
Away Kit: All white with details in blue
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Antoine Tamount
Director of Football: Alain Tamount
Coach: Guy Royal
Last Season and Objectives: The Impact's fans, players and Board were slapped in the face thanks to the third place the Impact got last season, which was a failure for them. This season, the Impact will start as one of the favorites for the title, although this time they may be in disadvantage against Bezieres and the Alligators. This time, the Impact will have a harder mission in order to keep their record as the winningest team in Valladares.
Rivalries: AS Bezieres (Derby du Foix), Olympique de Fontvielle (Derby du Fontvielle), Eterna Stars, Metropolis Alligators
Fans: Most of Fontvielle's fans work in Tamount factories, or worked for Tamount at some moment. Currently, they are specially concentrated in Fontvielle and its outskirts, Gatineau, Bezieres, and the French-speaking neighborhoods of Metropolis. They show unconditional love to the team and tend to be noisy, cheerful and optimistic, even if the team is at the bottom of the table. Although they can be unruly and rebellious, but that happens when fans of other teams provoke them.
Main Supporters Groups: "Ultras Fontvielle 04" (2,024 members), "F-Sector" (1,995 members)
Prediction: 3rd. As we stated, the Impact's squad seems to be weaker than Bezieres' and the MA's this time. Therefore the pundits want to be fair and think "Les Bleus" will end in third place again.

VALLADAR SUPER LEAGUE - FOURTEENTH SEASON (PREVIEW OF THE NEW SEASON - PART II)


HAMANOS ATHLETIC CLUB: Garcés - Vergara, Lamoroux, Ruiz, Torrealba - Quintero, Douglas (C), Cortés, Garzón - Perea, Ramos
Full Name: Hamanos Town Athletic Club
Nickname (s): "The Orange", "The Dam's Boys", "The HAC"
Stadium: Estadio Gobernador Villa, Pradera, Antioquia (Cap. 23,500)
Sponsor (s): AlfaCredit Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: All orange
Away Kit: All white
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Paul Jackson
Manager: Carl Thompson
Coach: Gilles Urdinola
Last Season and Objectives: The HAC had a difficult season, with problems with relegation, ending in fifteenth place with 40 points, five points clear of Caimanes. The main objective for the Orange will be avoiding relegation. That's all they want this upcoming season.
Rivalries: Pradera FC, Valencia FC (Clásico Antioqueño), Slateport Bulls (Derby of the Lake)
Fans: The HAC have a small fanbase, concentrated in Hamanos Town and its vicinity. They are rarely loyal to the team, since the Estadio Municipal is almost never filled with local fans. In each Hamanos' match at the Estadio Municipal there are maximum 3,500 local fans, proving the lack of support the team has, thanks to their poor campaigns.
Main Supporters Groups: "Hijos de la Presa" ("Sons of the Dam" - 522 members); "Orange Pride" (207 members)
Prediction: 17th. Hamanos do not look strong enough to avoid at least the brand-new promotion-relegation play-off. So, the seventeenth place and the play-off is where the pundits expect Hamanos to end this season.

MARINOS METROPOLIS: Sánchez - Umaña, Gutiérrez, Correa, Perea - Ricardinho, Acuña, Bourgault, Oliveira (C) - Patiño, Aguilar
Full Name: Club Deportivo Marinos de Metropolis
Nickname (s): "Los Marineros" (The Mariners), "El Cuarto Grande" (The Fourth Big Team), "Los Azul Celeste" (The Sky Blues)
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): Valladar Broadcasting Corporation (Media), AL Electronics (Electronics)
Home Kit: Sky blue shirt with details in black and black shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in sky blue
Third/GK Kit: Yellow shirt and white shorts
Chairman: Luis Montes
Director of Football: Rodolfo Pérez
Coach: Thomas Russell
Last Season and Objectives: Marinos ended the last season in an encouraging seventh place, after lots of seasons of failure after failure, which had their fans totally depressed. With the Board members rejecting an offer submitted by a Pocoan club for Ivan Correa, they have stated they want to re-appear among the Top-5 teams and try to challenge for either an UICA spot or the title. Let's see how their head-to-head against the favorite teams goes...
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators (Metropolitan Derby), Slateport Bulls (Blue Derby), AD Cerro and Nacional (Little Metropolitan Derby), Olympique de Fontvielle
Fans: Marinos is the fourth most popular football team in Valladares, with a large fanbase. About 11% of Valladar population support the club, and their average gates for their home matches are the fourth highest in the Super League. Their fanbase is located mainly in Metropolis. Marinos' fans are considered one of the most passionate and loyal to their team in the Super League. They constantly tend to fight with Metropolis Alligators' and Slateport Bulls' fans, since their hostility towards them is big as well as Marinos' rivalry with both teams.
Major Supporters Groups: "Curva Azul Norte" ("North Blue End" - 2,997 members), "Reyes del Domo" ("Kings of the Dome" - 2,343 members)
Prediction: 8th. Marinos had a "great" season in VSL 13, but the pundits don't see them as a strong team to end in a better position.

METROPOLIS ALLIGATORS: Tom - García, Pereira, Abraham, Silva - Ospina (C), Botero, Gutiérrez - Johansson-Bakvis, Flórez, Koit
Full Name: Metropolis Alligators Football Club
Nickname (s): "Los Caimanes" (The Alligators), "Los Verdiazules" (The Green-Blues), "El Titán" (The Titan), "The MA"
Stadium: Metropolis Dome, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 65,000)
Sponsor (s): UNE (Telecommunications), District Mayoralty of Metropolis (Local government)
Home Kit: Green shirt with blue horizontal stripes and black shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in green and blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All yellow
Chairman: Olivier Bonilla
Director of Football: Elías Parra-León
Coach: Charles McMurdon
Last Season and Objectives: The Alligators come from their worst season ever in the Super League, after ending in fifth place last season. Although their participations in the Globe Cup and Cygnus Cup were decent, their title drought in the league has already worried their fans and the Board, who have brought Cotdelapomais striker Per-Olivier Johansson-Bakvis and have repatriated Miguel Flórez, who comes from Valengren Kickers in Queer Poco el Mono Ara, making along with Chase Koit the most feared offensive trio in the league. If that trio doesn't manage to bring the Alligators' title drought to an end, then it'll be another failure that will go to the MA's book.
Rivalries: Marinos Metropolis (Metropolitan Derby), Tannenberg FC and Eterna Stars (National Derby), AD Cerro, Nacional (Little Metropolitan Derby), Fontvielle Impact, SC Caimanes, AS Bezieres
Fans: With a 14.3% of popularity, Metropolis Alligators is one of the most popular clubs in Valladares. Their fanbase is by far, the largest in the nation. The Alligators have fans in every city, town or village in Valladares. These fans are characterized for being noisy, loyal to the team, also, they protest when they see the team play poorly and they are not tolerant of opposing teams fans.
Main Supporters Groups: "The Alligator Army" (4,148 members), "The Royals" (3,690 members)
Prediction: 1st. The pundits think the Alligators will have a real chance to win their third title with the three strikers they have gathered, so they think the MA will be finally able to seize the Canalave Crown after eleven long seasons.

NACIONAL: Barrera - López, Russell, Martínez, Rueda - Vélez, Ruiz (C), Boisbriand, Lecompte - Renato, Márquez
Full Name: Club Nacional de Fútbol
Nickname (s): "La Academia" (The Academy), "Los Albos" (The Whites)
Stadium: City of Metropolis Stadium, Metropolis, District of Metropolis (Cap. 47,826)
Sponsor (s): Heritage (Insurance services)
Home Kit: All white
Away Kit: Red shirt and blue shorts
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerardo Matallana
Director of Football: Peter Capwell
Coach: Harrison Villar
Last Season and Objectives: Nacional finished in a disappointing eighth place last season, so they will be seeking for revenge this season. The Board and the players have stated their goal is the title, although there are some strong teams that will surely make harder the task for "La Academia".
Rivalries: AD Cerro, Metropolis Alligators and Marinos Metropolis (Little Metropolitan Derby)
Fans: Nacional have a small fanbase, however, they are loyal to the team. In every Nacional's match at the Miller Hoverberg, there are 10,000 noisy fans cheering their team, no matter the rival.
Main Supporters Groups: "Torcida Tricolor" (2,009 members), "Hinchas Fieles" ("Faithful Fans" - 1,143 members)
Prediction: 5th. Nacional will have lots of problems to stay among the Top-5, but the pundits think they will be able to clinch a Globe Cup spot at the end of the season.

NORD ENERGIE FC: Reeves - García, Smith, Cabrera, Edwards - Nicholls (C), Evans, Romero, Forrest - Gomes, Andrews
Full Name: Nord Energie Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Blood and Gold", "The Electric Boys"
Stadium: Frank Clair Stadium, Fauxham, Eterna (Cap. 15,500)
Sponsor (s): EnergyValladares (Electric utilities), Bavaria (Beverages)
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with red vertical strips and red shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in yellow and red
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Gerard Montana
Director of Football: Jacques Riegel
Coach: Gilles Cheyrou
Last Season and Objectives: Despite being the revelation of the league during a long time, Nord Energie ended in eleventh place. And seeing that "success", the team are looking for another decent place for this upcoming season, and if it is among the Top-10 it'll be even better for them.
Rivalries: FC Fauxham, Canalave Dragons, Eterna Stars
Fans: Nord Energie's fanbase is mostly formed with the former workers of Carrillo Canyon I, most of them live in the outskirts of Toril, a town located north of Eterna City. This small fanbase is not as noisy as other small teams' fanbases, and they tend to sit down and just watch the game. Their loyalty is questionable since Nord Energie do not tend to play with full stadium, except when Eterna, Tannenberg, Slateport and the MA come to Toril.
Main Supporters Groups: "Toril's Bad Boys" (533 members), "Yellow-Red Union" (205 members)
Prediction: 11th. The pundits think Nord Energie will be a hard nut to crack once again, but they also say that won't be enough to avoid eleventh place.

OLYMPIQUE DE FONTVIELLE: Gavanon (C) - Carrasso, Govou, Velmont, Lacroix - Lopera, Montes, Puel, Santos - Filo, Simão
Full Name: Club Sportif Olympique de Fontvielle
Nickname (s): "Les Jaune et Bleu" (The Yellow-Blues), "Le OF" (The OF), "L'Express Jaune" (The Yellow Express)
Stadium: Stade de la Frontière, Fontvielle, Foix (Cap. 36,500)
Sponsor (s): Ferrocarriles Nacionales de Valladares (Rail transport)
Home Kit: Yellow shirt with details in blue and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red with details in white
Chairman: François Lemerre
Director of Football: Olivier Puel
Coach: Jean Camacho
Last Season and Objectives: Olympique de Fontvielle ended in sixth place once again, but thanks to a "nasty decision" from the Paripana Sporting Council they were unable to take part in the AFI. This time, Olympique will focus on the Top-5, and maybe the fight with the Stars, Tannenberg, Marinos, Nacional and Slateport for the last Globe Cup spot will be more even this time.
Rivalries: Fontvielle Impact (Derby du Fontvielle), AS Vaud, AS Bezieres
Fans: As the second team in the city, Olympique de Fontvielle have few fans. Few, but they have them. OF's fans are noisy, and like to cheer their team, and are becoming loyal to the team, since there are now more than 10,500 present fans in every Olympique's match at the Stade de l'Amitié.
Main Supporters Groups: "Virage Sud" ("South Curve" - 1,938 members), "Jaune Armée" ("Yellow Army" - 1,129 members)
Prediction: 4th. This is the golden opportunity for the OF to shine in the Super League, and the pundits think they will be able to end in fourth place this time.

PRADERA FC: Rodríguez - Saraz, Grajales, Barco, Gaviria - Garcés (C), Castro, Borrero, Phillips, Ruiz - Tello
Full Name: Pradera Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Los Verdiblancos" (The Green-Whites)
Stadium: Estadio Gobernador Villa, Pradera, Antioquia (Cap. 23,500)
Sponsor (s): Provenza (Food), Banco Latino (Financial services)
Home Kit: Green shirt with details in white and white shorts
Away Kit: All white with details in green
Third/GK Kit: All black
Chairman: Guillermo Buitrago
Director of Football: Julio Aristizabal
Coach: Frèderic Galletti
Last Season and Objectives: After a bad Apertura, Pradera managed to do a remarkable comeback in the Clausura in order to end in thirteenth place last season. The goals for the upcoming season: a decent placement and away from the relegation zone. If they manage to end ahead of both Hamanos and Valencia, this will be a successful season for them. If both the HAC and Valencia got relegated and Pradera don't, it'll be even more successful.
Rivalries: Hamanos Athletic Club, Valencia FC (Clásico Antioqueño)
Fans: Pradera's fanbase is located mainly in Pradera. Their fans are noisy, and tend to insult directly their own players when they feel their players are not doing any sacrifice in the game. Every person accepting to be the Pradera's coach must be prepared to endure the pressure from the Estadio Gobernador Villa's "shareholder's stand".
Main Supporters Groups: "Jugador 12" ("12th Player" - 1,328 members), "Los Sureños" (The Southerners" - 651 members)
Prediction: 15th. Although "Los Verdiblancos" can be capable of ending in a better position, the pundits say Pradera will have to be happy with a worthy fifteenth place.

SLATEPORT BULLS: García - Tamayo, Jones, Lennon (C), Suárez - Arribagé, López, Quintero, Velasco - Robichaud, Varga
Full Name: Slateport Bulls Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Bulls"
Stadium: Estadio de la Riviera, Slateport, Eterna (Cap. 40,000)
Sponsor (s): BullRade (Sports drink), MediCare (Healthcare)
Home Kit: Blue shirt with details in red and blue shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in dark blue and white shorts
Third/GK Kit: All red
Chairman: Alexander Edwards
Director of Football: Charles Williams
Coach: Leonard Gillet
Last Season and Objectives: Slateport were the main disappointment the last season, after they ended in a terrible ninth place. Obviously, the Bulls are aiming at a Top-5 placement for this upcoming season, but it seems they will have to fight against five other teams for a Globe Cup spot this time. Let the carnage begin...
Rivalries: Eterna Stars (Eterna Derby), Marinos Metropolis (Blue Derby), SC Caimanes, Fontvielle Impact, Tannenberg FC
Fans: Their fanbase is passionate and cheerful, based mainly in Slateport and its outskirts. They are always present at the Estadio de la Riviera, cheering their team with chants and harangues. Sometimes, they tend to provoke other teams' fans, specially Marinos' fans, with the idea of showing their hatred towards them. The rivalry between both fanbases is big, since both teams are trying to be considered as the "fourth Big team" in the nation.
Main Supporters Groups: "Blue Bulls" (1,671 members), "South-Sector" (1,207 members)
Prediction: 9th. The Bulls don't seem to have a team able to compete against their other rivals for the GC spots, so they will have to settle for another ninth place. The King's Shield hasn't been ruled out though...

TANNENBERG FC: Triviño - Carvalho, Carlinhos, Martínez, Alex - Rosero, Phillips, Coleman, Peterson - Zapata, Pérez (C)
Full Name: Tannenberg Football Club
Nickname (s): "The Citizens", "The Black-Whites", "The Knights", "The TFC"
Stadium: White Meadow Arena, Carloburgo, Mountbatten (Cap. 69,070)
Sponsor (s): Oak Air (Airline)
Home Kit: Black shirt with white vertical strips and black shorts
Away Kit: White shirt with details in black and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: Black shirt with details in white and white shorts
Chairman: Gustavo Delima
Director of Football: Ulises Maldonado
Coach: Peter Selás
Last Season and Objectives: Tannenberg managed to end in fourth place last season, after being in a long and exhausting head-to-head with AS Bezieres and Fontvielle Impact for the Clausura title. For this season, the goals are two: 1. A title or qualification to an UICA tournament and 2. To achieve some international recognition. The "Citizens" are confident this will be their season.
Rivalries: Metropolis Alligators and Eterna Stars (National Derby), Ajax Carloburgo and AC Tallin (Carloburgo Derby), Slateport Bulls, AS Bezieres
Fans: Tannenberg are one of the most popular teams in the nation, as 14.3% of the country's population support the club. Their fans are passionate, but they do not tend to feel themselves provoked by other teams' fans, like Bezieres' fans. Their love towards the team is demonstrated every week, as the White Meadow Arena is frecuently filled with more than 62,000 noisy local fans, cheering their team.
Main Supporters Groups: "Tannenberg Battlers" (3,531 members), "Black-White Artillery" (3,110 members)
Prediction: 6th. If they thought they would have a competitive enough team to compete for the title, they were totally wrong. The pundits think Tannenberg will have to settle for sixth place, and the retirement of Hugo Ruiz will cost them a lot.

VALENCIA FC: Sánchez - Perea, Villagra, Quiñonez, Vargas - Bernal, Rosero, Rouillard, Galeano (C) - Gaviria, Jaramillo
Full Name: Valencia Fútbol Club
Nickname (s): "Los Púrpura" (The Purples)
Stadium: Estadio Municipal de Valencia, Valencia, Antioquia (Cap. 17,700)
Sponsor (s): Mercantil Bank (Financial services)
Home Kit: White shirt with purple sleeves and white shorts
Away Kit: Black shirt with purple horizontal stripes and black shorts
Third/GK Kit: All yellow
Chairman: Gustavo Alzate
Manager: Alberto Lemus
Coach: Alexander Pereira
Last Season and Objectives: Valencia come back to the Super League after ending in third place the last season in the B-League and after a disappointing performance in the SBCC, being eliminated in the preliminary round. For a yo-yo team like them, the best thing they can achieve this season is a sixteenth place, and that tells us their Board is too confident...
Rivalries: Pradera FC, Hamanos Athletic Club (Clásico Antioqueño), Slateport Bulls, Canalave Dragons
Fans: Valencia's inhabitants are divided in two groups: Valencia's fans and Cardenales' fans. As usual when there are two or more teams in the same city, both fanbases hate the other to death. Valencia's fans are the most fanatic fans in this city...almost all of them have painted their house purple, or have painted the houses of their rivals, showing their extreme fanatism.
Prediction: 18th. Our dearest yo-yo team is doomed to the eighteenth place by the pundits. With no right to play-off. The reason: they just ain't good enough for this league.
