    Too bad about the loss against China.

    I'd just like to add that I am in no way to blame for the first goal against when playing argentina, and KUTGW!

    Cheers for the well wishes guys.

    I've brought the save game and FM disc home with me, might try and load it up on my folks pc sometime in the next couple of days if I'm not feeling that rough. Updates will be very slow though as my parents have yet to catch up with the broadband revolution.

    Hello everyone, thought I would give a quick 'me' update.

    I'm feeling quite a bit better now thatn what I did a couple of days ago - the pills the doc has given me have been working a treat.

    Anyway, touch wood I'm planning on going back to uni on Monday, so updates should be starting up again early next week. Apologies for the delay again, although ironically my illness has meant a smaller break in updates than if I hadn't been ill!! Was meant to be going on holiday tomorrow for a week with mates from uni - can't do that now because of my bloody illness.

    Anyway, hopefully from Monday onwards this sign up should start gathering momentum again.

    Weds 17th Sept: Leeds v Notts Forest - League Cup 2nd Round

    Hermandinho doesn't play in this game - I suspect because Notts Forest didn't ask to allow him to play in cup games in their loan agreement with Chelsea.

    HT: Leeds 0 v 0 Notts Forest

    FT: Leeds 1 v 2 Notts Forest

    Player Cam Match Report
    Sat 20th Sept: Derby (13th) v (16th) Notts Forest - League Match

    Hermandinho is restored to the starting line up.

    A goaless 1st half, where the keepers from both teams were the best players on the pitch. Hermandinho also acquitted himself well, with a few well timed tackles and headers.

    HT: Derby 0 v 0 Notts Forest
    Half Time Stats

    Derby hit the crossbar early in the 2nd half.
    Notts Forest score an offside goal.
    The deadlock is broken after 70 minutes with a goal of the season contender. Derby had the ball out on the right touchline, where Hleb takes a potshot from 30 yards after seeing the goalkeeper slightly off his line. It goes straight in the top corner of the goal, giving the keeper no chance. 1-0.
    Hermandinho continues to win the ball from corners, but does pick up a yellow card in the dying minutes of the game.

    FT: Derby 1 v 0 Notts Forest
    Full Time Stats

    A disappointing result but the goal was fit to win any game. Hermandinho has an excellent game, collecting the MOM award.

    Hermandinho has a MOM award! And winning most of his duels and getting lots of interceptions. Must have left the opponent's strikers feeling helpless.

    Unfortunate for the goal. Bah.

    Week ending Sunday 21st September 2008

    Following his MOM display in the last match, Derby manager Billy Davies lavishes praise on Hermandinho for his performance in the game. Hermandinho snubs the praise however, saying his own manager's praise matters more.

    At the other end of the spectrum, Salman Al-Dahash is criticised by his own boss for a poor run of form at Espanyol.

    Benj has also has his recent form criticised by boss David Moyes at Everton. Very harsh in my opinion )7-7-7-8-5), so just one poor game.

    The World Rankings for September have been announced:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    Kyrgyzstan 88th Down 10 places
    Turkmenistan 91st Down 2 places
    </pre>

    I thought now would be a good time to give an update on where the other 'Stans' are in the World Rankings:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    1. Uzbekistan 57th
    2. Tajikistan 63rd
    3. Kyrgyzstan 88th
    4. Turkmenistan 91st
    5. Kazahkstan 123rd
    6. Afghanistan 149th
    7. Pakistan 170th
    </pre>

    Hopefully if both teams progress to the 3rd Qual stage of the World Cup then they will move up the rankings.

    Player Cam Match Report
    Sat 27th Sept: Cardiff (7th) v (18th) Notts Forest - League Match

    The last game of player game for Hermandinho and he starts at centre back again.

    An even opening 20 minutes is almost brought to life after Sutton (not Chris btw) jinks past Hermandinho before blasting the ball over the bar.
    After 26 minutes, a blocked clearance by Cardiff falls at the feet of Spicer who with only the keeper to beat slots it past him. 0-1.
    Both teams have chances in the rest of the half, but most lack accuracy.

    HT: Cardiff 0 v 1 Notts Forest
    Half Time

    Neither team offer much during most of the 2nd half. Hermandinho again showing his prowess in the air, winning header after header.
    In the 2nd minute of injury time Cardiff have their best chance of the half. Hermandinho lost the forward he was marking and let him in, but the Notts Forest keeper pulls off a fantastic save to turn it round for a corner.

    FT: Cardiff 0 v 1 Notts Forest
    Full Time Stats

    Another win for Forest and another 8 rating for Hermandinho, who seems to be relishing the 1st team football before going back to Chelsea to try and force his way in. Mourinho are you watching?!!

    Week ending Sunday 28th September 2008


    As I haven't mentioned them much, here are the league tables for the Summer Leagues (Russia and Sweden) with a handful of games left for both Zenith St Petersburg (Dumats) and Hacken (Libertinho):

    Russia - Premier League Sept 2008
    Dumats is in with a shot of winning the Russian league with Zenith, although the team above them does have a game in hand. With the top 2 teams Qual for next season's Champs League, finishing in the top 2 is important for Dumats.

    Sweden - Premier League Sept 2008
    There is a chance that Libertinho could obtain his 2nd relegation in as many seasons with 2 different clubs!

    Taraldo has admitted that he is not adjusting to life in Holland with PSV very well and is unsettled. Shame, as in his 3 appearances so far he has an av rat of 8.33!

    Northampton and Peterborough are interested in Elfdog.

    Azeryk has the 'Unh' symbol by his name - he wants a new contract with Middlesbrough and is considering his options.

    Lost my man twice leading to danger, but still got a solid 8 in. Hmmm, not bad. Match stats are impressive.

    Loan period was only for half a season right? So I should return in January and start playing first team footie in the Premiership soon

    Southampton have offered to loan Ali Obeid for 3 months from West Ham.

    TeeWee - Yeah the loan is until 24th January, then you will be back at Chelsea, hopefully for the rest of the season.

    The UEFA Cup Group Stage draw has been made:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    Group B
    Athletico (Atas)
    Austria Wien
    Bordeaux
    Steaua Bucharest
    G.Antepspor
    </pre>

    Easy group for Athletico to progress from.

    Atas is the only one involved in the UEFA Cup at the moment - probably partly due to the fact that so many of you are involved in the Champions League. I will give halfway stage tables for the Champions League after the next round of matches.

    Forgot to mention that Azeryk has sign a new contract with Middlesbrough, a 5 year deal worth £4m, which equates to £13,750pw. This makes him the top earner amongst his fellow Kyrgyzstanis.

    Just to add some more detail to the extra update, the following World Cup 2010 Qual matches are being played on the 15th Oct:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    Turkmenistan v Saudi Arabia
    North Korea v Kyrgyzstan
    </pre>

    It's a must win game for Turkmenistan if they stand a chance of qualifying. Even a score draw may hand the advantage to Saudi Arabia (but I'm not sure whether away goals count when deciding results between teams in a group stage).

    Player Cam Match Report
    Sat 11th Oct: Blackburn (15th) v (9th) Everton - League Match

    Benj starts in centre mid for Everton.

    Everton take the lead after 15 minutes when Knight heads in a O'Neil freekick.
    Blackburn waste a couple of chances, hitting over at each opportunity.
    Not the most entertaining half of football ever.

    HT: Blackburn 0 v 1 Everton
    Half Time Stats

    In what was a dull 2nd half, Everton looked to being sneaking a victory until Bentley poppped up with a close range header with less than 10 minutes to go. 1-1.

    Week ending Sunday 12th October 2008

    Dumats has been praised by his manager for his 'magical' form of late. Dumats accepts the praise warmly.

    Ali Obeid has joined Southampton for 3 months on loan.

    Marcus Cook has sprained his ankle and will be out for 1-2 months, thereby missing Weds crunch game against the Saudis.

    Hermandinho has bruised his heel and will also miss the Saudi game. Will be out for upto 2 weeks.

    Prof Frink has well and truly been through the wars. Whilst taking part in light training in his return after a broken leg, he has suffered a gashed leg and could be out for upto 3 weeks. (His broken leg injury had only 1 week left).

    Int Call Ups
    Turkmenistan have called up 14 of their superkids. Hermandinho + Cook are injured.
    Kyrgyzstan have called up 14 superkids as well. Lui + Prof Frink are injured.

    Must say, I'm not confident at all about the Saudis. They're a beast on my game; they made the semifinals of the 2010 World Cup.

    BTW, on a humorous note, Spain beat England in the final on penalty kicks

    North Korea (106th) v (88th) Kyrgyzstan
    Weds 15th Oct: World Cup 2010 Asian Qualifying 2nd Round Group Stage

    Pre Match
    10 superkids start the match, with Bartinho, Freeladinho + Halali on the bench. Rosbon has been left out of the match day squad. Captain is Alan and Davo is the Key Man.

    My Opinion
    Kyrgyzstan need to win here to help keep China off their tails, am I sure they will be able to sneak it by the odd goal.

    Alan has a long ranged effort tipped over the bar in the 1st minute.
    Alan fires another shot from long range, this time just over the bar.
    Kyrgyzstan domination eventually tells. Taphouse puts in a cross from the right that seems to evade everyone apart from Benj at the back post who has the simple task of tapping home. 0-1.
    Bill is then subbed straight away, 36 minutes gone.
    Elfdog dives to his left to save a N Korea freekick at the end of the half. However, the ball goes straight to a N Korea player who fires the ball straight back at the goal. However, he didn't count for Elfdog getting up so quickly and hurling himself in the other direction to turn it around the post. Magical stuff.

    HT: North Korea 0 v 1 Kyrgyzstan
    Half Time Stats
    As has become a halftime ritual of late - Alan is subbed off and replaced by Halali, who becomes captain.

    The old suckerpunch by Kyrgyzstan. North Korea have a corner in the 70th minute, cleared by Halali down the left. Azeryk who had been back defending the corner, gets to the ball first and sprints down the left. He then jinks past a defender by cutting inside before calmly sliding the ball past the N Korean keeper. 0-2, fantastic counter. Birkinaldo is then subbed off.
    Elfdog makes another good save, palming over from close range.
    North Korea put the ball in the net in injury time but it is ruled out for offside.

    FT: North Korea 0 v 2 Kyrgyzstan
    Match Overview
    Player Stats

    An important win for Kyrgyzstan. MOM goes to Taphouse, but a special mention should also go to Elfdog for probably his best performance on the int stage so far.

    As North Korea have one of the largest stadiums in the World, it is interesting to note that the game was played infront of 136,000 people!!

    Not again had some more attempts though . Only time I get to heard about Alan as Sevilla never play him, the U23 manager never plays him and 2nd halfs are a definate no-no.

    Has he come anywhere near getting into the Sevilla team? Or even a move away?

    Turkmenistan (91st) v (33rd) Saudi Arabia
    Weds 15th Oct: World Cup 2010 Asian Qualifying 2nd Round Group Stage

    Pre Match
    10 of the superkids start the game. De Santiago, Ali Obeid, Chaoconov + Dumats are on the bench. Captain is Luke Swinson and Key Man is Selim Atas.

    My Opinion
    Another very important game between these 2 nations. Saudi Arabia lead the group by 2 points, so if Turkmenistan don't want to rely on other results in the final round of matches, a win here is a must. I think it may be another draw though.

    Tomaldinho has his freekick well saved by the Saudi keeper after 7 minutes.
    Libertinho collects the ball on the halfway line and fires a ball forward in advance of Gonzalez. The Saudi keeper makes an error judgement and as Gonzalez gets to the ball first, he is left with an open goal to slide the ball into. 1-0, 9 minutes gone.
    Turkmenistan just are not letting the Saudis settle at all. 23 minutes gone and Mendieta plays the ball down the left to Atas, who supplies a hanging cross from the touchline. All the Saudi keeper can do is palm the ball out straight to Swinson who smacks in the 2nd goal and his 1st ever goal for Turkmenistan. 2-0.
    Tomaldinho receives some physio treatment on the sidelines. Whilst he is off, Saudi Arabia attack down the left, ending with Swinson bringing down one of their players. Penalty. Saudi Arabia convert. 2-1.
    Atas volleys wide in injury time.

    HT: Turkmenistan 2 v 1 Saudi Arabia
    Half Time Stats
    It's going to be a very interesting 2nd half.

    63 minutes gone, Atas heads the ball out to Swinson on the right wing, who makes a mockery of the 2 Saudis out there. He thens crosses the ball to the near post, where it is met by Atas who heads straight at the keeper. The Saudis then counter, with the ball ending up with a Saudi striker who is completely unmarked, yet loses his control and fires just over.
    67 minute and this time no mistake. Again Swinson weaves his magic down the right, before crossing to the back post where Rossini is there to finish and score his 1st ever goal for Turkmenistan. 3-1, game over surely.
    77 minutes gone and off go Libertinho + Rossini. On comes Ali Obeid + Chaoconov.
    Gonzalez is subbed after 83 minutes.

    FT: Turkmenistan 3 v 1 Saudi Arabia
    Match Overview
    Player Stats

    Great win for Turkmenistan. MOM goes to Gonzalez.

    They have splashed all their cash on Alan Smith so you have to be gratful for the pocket money you get and the free lunches at the stadium

    But it is certainly better than those hard times back in the 'stan.

    Player Cam Match Report
    Sat 18th Oct: Everton (10th) v (15th) West Ham - League Match

    Benj starts in centre mid for Everton. Davo starts for West Ham at right back.

    Well, thats quite the start. Everton KO, ball is played out to the left then back into Benj. He picks out Vaughan on the edge of the area, who spins and then slots the ball passed the keeper. 1-0, 15 seconds gone.
    Everton clear a corner to Wright-Phillips, who runs down the right and crosses the ball for Kikin Fonseca to hit home. 2-0, 4 minutes gone.
    Knight lumps a freekick from the left to the back post where Wright-Phillips can take a touch before firing home. 3-0, 28 minutes gone.
    West Ham pull one back after 39 minutes, Vuoso scoring. 3-1.

    HT: Everton 3 v 1 West Ham
    Half Time Stats
    Unbelievably, there has only been 5 shots in the whole game - yet 4 goals!!

    Benj is subbed after 52 minutes.
    West Ham have a great chance to make it 3-2, but Vuoso slides it wide.
    McFadden heads home with 7 minutes to go to make sure. 4-1.

    FT: Everton 4 v 1 West Ham
    Full Time Stats

    A 7 for Benj and an assist, just a shame he didn't last longer on the pitch. Davo got a 6 rating.

    Player Cam Match Report
    Sat 24th Oct: West Brom (8th) v (5th) Everton - League Match

    Despite picking up a dead leg in midweek training and still recovering, Benj starts in centre mid today.

    13 minutes gone and Benj swings in a corner from the left. McFadden rises at the near post to head home. 0-1.
    Both teams have half chances in the next 20 minutes.
    Figueroa equalises with a minute of the half to go, slotting home a one-on-one. Apparently Benj is to blame for a poor pass, but I'm dubious. 1-1.

    HT: West Brom 1 v 1 Everton
    Half Time Stats

    Benj is subbed on the hourmark.
    West Brom probably have the best chances of the 2nd half, but nothing that troubled Howard too much.
    As the commentator said, a poor 2nd half.

    Ali Obeid is wanted by Watford.

    The Champions League for this season has reached the halfway stage for the groups, so as promised:
    Groups A-D
    Groups E-H

    Unfortunately none of the superkids have played anymore than 1 group game so far, although one round of the matches clashed with the last World Cup Quals for Asia.

    Here are your games played stats as well:

    Player Cam Match Report
    Weds 29th Oct: Wigan (10th) v (5th) Everton - League Match

    Benj starts his last game of player cam in centre mid.

    A quiet opening half hour is woken slightly when O'Neil rattles the woodwork with a freekick from 20 yards.
    Wigan have a freekick of their own but it goes straight to Howard in goal.

    HT: Wigan 0 v 0 Everton
    Half Time Stats
    Interesting point to note is that Benj appears to be the more defensively minded out of the 2 centre mids in his partnership with O'Neil. Quite common to see him bomb forward, before checking his run when he realises what he is doing.

    Benj is subbed off after 52 minutes for Diarra (the mini-Makelele currently at Chelsea irl).
    Absolutely unbelievable - just when I was about to write that this was the first ever half of football on FM where I haven't actually seen any key highlights, Everton attack down the left and in the 3rd minute of injury time at the end of the game Vaughan pops up with a header to finish off the cross from the left. 0-1.

    FT: Wigan 0 v 1 Everton
    Full Time Stats

    This game deserved to finish 0-0 as it was completely uneventful until injury time!
    Benj gets a 7 for his efforts.



    There will be no player cam in November as both countries have 3 internationals which would reduce the opportunities for me to watch you.

    Hmm, Chaoconov's 5(3) appearances for Anderlecht so far is a definite improvement over the previous seasons. Doesn't look like he's playing particularly well though. On the bright side, with a 5.75 AvgR, the future looks promising (as it can hardly get worse).

    Freealdinho has had his recent form labelled 'acceptable' by his boss at Swansea. Freeladinho reacts with bemusement, saying that he thought his recent form had been unacceptable (9-7-6-6-9) - obviously has high standards of himself.

    More Freealdinho news - Chelsea are now interested in him and he is now 'considering his options'.

    Portsmouth are interested in Professor Frink.

    Azeryk has broken his toe, he is currently receiving specialist treatment on it. Out for around 2 months.

    News of interest for Azeryk + Marcus Cook: Gareth Southgate has been sacked as manager of Middlesbrough.

    Tomaldinho now has Vagner Love listed under his favoured personel at Lazio.

    Selim Atas has Ikechukwu Uche, a Nigerian and fellow Athletico striker.

    Pablo Gonzalez has Ruud Van Nistelrooy listed under his favoured personel.


    We have our 3rd Wonderkid! It is Alvaro De Santiago at Inter - just a shame that Inter are not playing him!

    Another team interested in me but like Inter and Real probably won't take me out of here .

    Scored a goal from one sub appearance, surely the Sevilla manager can see I can score if given a chance? Only half a game tops for my club by November is pretty poor.

    Poland (56th) v (88th) Kyrgyzstan
    Sat 8th Nov: Friendly

    Pre Match
    10 superkids start, with the only non-superkid starting in centre mid. Elfdog, Halali, Bartinho + Freealdinho are on the bench. Azeryk is injured and Benj non-appearance is a mystery. Alan is captain and Sam Taphouse is the Key Man.

    My Opinion
    Poland are a fairly decent side and are at home, so I think a draw is on the cards. Will certainly be an interesting test as to how far the team has progressed.

    With the first clear cut chance of the half, Bill finds Alan who collects the ball after 13 minutes and fires the ball into the net. 0-1.
    Al-Dahash smashes the ball over the bar after 16 minutes.
    Al-Dahash fires wide after 24 minutes.
    With their 1st shot on target, Poland equalise. A corner to the back post is headed in. 1-1.

    HT: Poland 1 v 1 Kyrgyzstan
    Half Time Stats
    Cor blimey - Alan isn't subbed off at half time! The non-superkid is though, with Halali coming on.

    Bill finds Alan again, but this time his shot is tipped over the bar.
    Triple substitution on the hour mark. Off goes Al-Dahash, Bill + Alan and the replacements include Bartinho + Freealdinho.
    Davo makes a vital clearance after Birkinaldo lets the ball go past him.
    After 71 minutes, Prof Frink + Davo are subbed. On comes 2 non-superkids.
    Lui saves well from a close range volley.
    Freealdinho + Taphouse play a long range one-two, ending with Freealdinho having his header tipped over.
    Lui dives full stretch to save a long range shot in the final minute of the game. However, from the resultant corner, Poland bundle the ball into the net. 2-1.

    FT: Poland 2 v 1 Kyrgyzstan
    Match overview
    Player Stats

    Poland did dominate the 2nd half for chances, though the last minute goal was harsh on Kyrgyzstan. MOM goes to Alan, who was a threat when on the pitch.

    Thailand (92nd) v (90th) Turkmenistan
    Sat 8th Nov: Friendly

    Pre Match
    11 superkids start for Turkmenistan. De Santiago, Chaoconov + Dumats are on the bench. Marcus Cook is injured and Atas, like Benj for Kyrgyzstan is left out - perhaps they were both withdrawn by their clubs?! Captain is Swinson and Key Man is Taraldo.

    My Opinion
    On paper a very even game, but Turkmenistan should be looking to win against opposition of this calibre. Turkmenistan victory, especially with the starting line up.

    Hermandinho is fortunate that his poor clearance comes to nothing.
    Gonzalez tests the keeper a couple of times in the first 20 minutes, both times the keeper saves well.
    3rd time lucky though, Swinson whacks the ball upfield from near his own penalty area. Gonzalez runs onto the ball and this time makes sure the keeper isn't saving it, smacking the ball into the top corner. 22 minutes gone, 0-1.
    Gonzalez then dribbles passed a couple of defenders before being foiled by the keeper yet again.

    HT: Thailand 0 v 1 Turkmenistan
    Half Time Stats

    53rd minute and Rossini clears the ball down the left wing. Gonzalez picks the ball up and crosses for Ali Obeid who finishes at the near post. 0-2.
    Chaoconov replaces Rossini.
    Thailand go down to 10 men after 65 minutes, for a professional foul on Swinson after he had cut inside and gone on a mazy dribble. Koppers is replaced by Dumats. From the resultant freekick, Tomaldinho scores, although the deflection off the wall is huge and it just pee-rolls across the goaline. 0-3.
    After 75 minutes, Libertinho + Gonzalez are subbed.
    After 83 minutes, Mendieta is subbed.

    FT: Thailand 0 v 3 Turkmenistan
    Match Overview
    Player Stats

    MOM goes to Gonzalez for his great 1st half performance. Good win for Turkmenistan.

    Greece (46th) v (90th) Turkmenistan
    Weds 12th Nov: Friendly

    Pre Match
    Identical line-up to the game against Thailand, with 11 superkids starting and Chaoconov, De Santiago + Dumats on the bench. Captain is Swinson and Key Man is Taraldo.

    My Opinion
    After the Poland Kyrgyzstan game a few days earlier, I think Greece may be just too strong for Turkmenistan - especially away from home.

    A poor pass by a Greek midfielder sends Gonzalez through on goal, but he hits the side netting.
    Gonzalez fires across goal after 22 minutes.
    Very canny. Taraldo played a sweeping 40 yard ball ahead of Gonzalez, who decides this time to go over the top, but cannily using his head on the bouncing ball to knock it over the Greek keeper and into the net from about 15 yards. 0-1.
    Maldinov produces a top draw save diving to his right, pushing the ball round the post for a corner.
    Maldinov is again called into action 3 minutes later, pushing a header over the bar.
    From the corner Swinson heads clear and runs after the ball, dribbling all the way into the Greek penalty area, before teeing up Koppers who fired with power straight at the keeper.

    HT: Greece 0 v 1 Turkmenistan
    Half Time Stats
    Swinson is replaced by Dumats during halftime. Taraldo takes over as captain. Turkmenistan move to a 3-3-2-1-1.

    After a quiet start to the 2nd half, Greece rifle in an equaliser, Kafes scoring crossbar and in from within the penalty area. 1-1, 60 minutes gone.
    The goal also marks substitutions, with Rossini + Ali Obeid being replaced.
    Gonzalez has a couple of very ambitious efforts from long range that don't trouble the keeper.
    Tomaldinho + Gonzalez are subbed after 73 minutes.
    Taraldo is subbed aftre 80 minutes.
    Greece have a powerful long shot just over the bar with a couple of minutes to go.
    Greece almost nick it at the end, a poor backpass by a non-superkid is not fully capitalised on by Greece.

    FT: Greece 1 v 1 Turkmenistan
    Match Overview
    Player Stats

    A fair result I think and Turkmenistan will be happy as it will do their world ranking no trouble at all.
    MOM goes to Rossini.

    Jordan (82nd) v (88th) Kyrgyzstan
    Weds 12th Nov: Friendly

    Pre Match
    The same 10 superkids start the game as they did at the weekend. Alan is the Captain and the Key Man is Sam Taphouse. On the bench is Elfdog, Halali, Freealdinho + Bartinho.

    My Opinion
    Jordan are not as good as Poland, so I think Kyrgyzstan should be able to win this one.

    Despite dominating the first 10 minutes, with Alan + Bill both testing the keeper, it is actually Jordan who take the lead with a header from a freekick out on the left. 1-0.
    14 minutes gone and this game gets even more bizarre, Jordan doubling their lead via a deflected shot off Birkinaldo from the edge of the area. 2-0.
    Ryan hits the crossbar with a freekick.
    31 minutes gone and Ryan gets to the byline before crossing in for Alan at the near post to head home. 2-1.
    Davo finds Bill with a ball over the top. Bill decides to put an innocent enough cross into the box, before it gets a wicked deflection off a defender and beats the Jordan keeper at his near post. It goes down as an own goal though. 2-2, 37 minutes gone.

    HT: Jordan 2 v 2 Kyrgyzstan
    Half Time Stats
    An entertaining half and Kyrgyzstan didn't deserve to go in behind. Note to Taphouse, no idea why your rating is so low, the stats don't show anything and I don't recall anything.
    Halali comes on at halftime for the non-superkid.

    Al-Dahash + Bill pick yellow cards in the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half.
    Bill + Alan are subbed after 61 minutes, on comes Freealdinho.
    Al-Dahash has the best chance of the 2nd half so far, collecting a ball from Robson, but placing his shot just wide of the far post.
    Ryan + Taphouse are subbed after 72 minutes, with Bartinho coming on.
    Farcial defending by Jordan. A simple backpass by the Jordan centreback but the keeper fails to come for it, allowing Al-Dahash to smash home the ball from 6 yards. 2-3.

    FT: Jordan 2 v 3 Kyrgyzstan
    Match Overview
    Player Stats

    A great comeback by Kyrgyzstan. MOM for Salman Al-Dahash.


    The World Cup 2010 Quals to come later tonight.

    Aww, Chaoconov stayed on the bench against Greece. No room for a left winger in that silly christmas tree formation.

    Good result though.

    I'm getting sick and tired of ALWAYS being a substitute for Kyrgyzstan considering my goalscoring exploits for Swansea.

    Week ending Sunday 16th November 2008

    Alvaro De Santiago has picked up a strained wrist and will be out for upto a week.

    Ghoolbi Dumats has a bruised shin and will be out for a few days.

    These 2 along with Marcus Cook have not been included in the Turkmenistan squad to face Hong Kong on Weds. This means that Selim Atas has been recalled.

    Kyrgyzstan have called up 14 superkids for their game against Vietnam. Azeryk is injured and Taphouse is suspended after picking up 2 yellows in previous qualifiers.

    Doncaster have asked to loan Elfdog from Watford for 3 months. Doncaster are currently 18th in League One.


    The World Rankings were announced this week and it has produced a definitive moment for this game, as Turkmenistan now lead Kyrgyzstan in the rankings for the 1st time:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    Turkmenistan 74th Up 16 places
    Kyrgyzstan 84th Up 4 places

    18 interceptions for Robson in 2 matches Vacuuml cleaner coming through (too bad I just give the ball back to the opposition in 35% of the cases though )

    You've just taken a likening to him.

    In reference to what else you were saying, no-one has been tutored by anyone for quite a while now.

    Kyrgyzstan v Vietnam
    Weds 19th Nov: World Cup 2010 Asian Qualifying 2nd Round Group Stage

    Pre Match
    Mark Lawrenson decides to fill 11 superkids in his starting line up for this big game. Captain is Alan and the Key Man is El Loco Bartinho. On the bench is Elfdog, Halali + Freealdinho.

    My Opinion
    A win is needed to finish top and qualify along with the rest of the big boys for the 3rd Qual round. A win will be achieved and by several goals.

    56 seconds gone, Alan crosses for Bill to head home at the far post. 1-0.
    5 minutes gone and Alan runs through the centre, feeds Bill who sends the ball pass the keeper. 2-0.
    8 minutes gone and Al-Dahash crosses from the right flank. Bill glances the ball into the far post to complete an eight minute hattrick!!! 3-0.
    A minute later, Robson takes a pot shot from 30 yards - top left hand corner of the goal thank you very much. 4-0.
    19 minutes gone and Al-Dahash takes a corner on the left. Birkinaldo thumps the ball with his head past the keeper for his 1st ever goal for Kyrgyzstan. 5-0 and Kyrgyzstan's record win is looking under threat.
    Ryan floats a freekick into the box and Bill rises to glance the ball into the far post. 6-0, 22 minutes gone. After such excitement early on, the rest of the half was relatively mundane.

    HT: Kyrgyzstan 6 v 0 Vietnam
    Half Time Stats
    Looks like China are getting knocked out of the qualification process at an early stage.

    A quiet 2nd half, with the first real chance coming after 65 minutes, Bill running onto a flick on, yet this time the keeper saves.
    Bill is substituted after 71 minutes and receives a standing ovation. On comes Freealdinho.
    He's been on the pitch less than 2 minutes but that means nothing. Freealdinho heads in a cross from the left wing by Alan. 7-0.
    Alan is then subbed off, with Halali coming on.
    Robson is injured and is subbed after 81 minutes.

    FT: Kyrgyzstan 7 v 0 Vietnam
    Match Overview
    Player Stats

    A great win for Kyrgyzstan and they are through to the next stage. MOM goes to Bill for his goalfest.

    Hong Kong v Turkmenistan
    Weds 19th Nov: World Cup 2010 Asian Qualifying 2nd Round Group Stage

    David Pleat also decides to field 11 superkids in his starting line-up. Captain is Luke Swinson and Key Man is Selim Atas. On the bench is Ali Obeid + Chaoconov.

    My Opinion
    Turkmenistan need a win to guarantee that Saudi Arabia doesn't pip them to the top spot. Hong Kong have yet to get a point in this stage yet, so Turkmenistan should ease to victory.

    5 minutes gone and Taraldo crosses to the near post, where Atas heads home. 0-1.
    13 minutes gone and a cross by Koppers on the left his headed clear, but only as far as Libertinho who 25 yards out finds the top corner of the net with his first time strike. 0-2.
    Several more shots fly in on goal before Atas is put through and scores a one-on-one. 0-3.
    Tomaldinho feeds the ball into the feet of Gonzalez, who bends the ball into the far post from the edge of the area. 0-4.
    Taraldo puts in a freekick and Swinson puts the ball in the net. 0-5.

    HT: Hong Kong 0 v 5 Turkmenistan

    Very easy, very comfortable and very much progressing into the next round.

    Just after an hour has passed, Gonzalez runs down the right wing, puts a cross into the near post for Atas who finishes to obtain his hattrick. 0-6.
    A poor clearance by the Hong Kong goalie puts Gonzalez in the clear, that is until a Hong Kong centre back decides to play rugby instead of football and brings him down. Hong Kong are reduced to 10 men.
    2 minutes later and a lovely possession football move ends up with Atas curling home his 4th goal from the edge of the area.
    After 78 minutes, Atas is subbed off.
    With 5 minutes to go, Chaoconov replaces Rossini.
    With 2 minutes to go, Tomaldinho is replaced.

    Onto the final round of qualifiers!

    Two groups of four teams, top two qualify?
    If so, we've got a chance.
    Hopefully Turkmenistan and Krzgrzrygszistan will be drawn in different groups though, to increase the chances of both teams qualifying.

    Bahrain and Qatar should be whipping boys hopefully. S. Korea, Japan, Iran, and especially Australia will be very tough.

    I predict Australia, S. Korea, Iran, and Kyrgyzstan go through with Turkmenistan making playoff.

    Week ending Sunday 23rd November 2008

    Chaoconov is out for a week with a bruised shin.

    George Robson broke his ankle in the game against Vietnam. He is receiving specialist treatment and will be out for 2-3 months.

    The Swedish and Russian Premier Leagues have finished with both Hacken and Zenith St Petersburg being involved in crucial last round of fixtures:
    Sweden - Premier League
    Hacken and Libertinho avoided relegation on the last day of the season and will remain in the top flight next season.

    Russia - Premier League
    The league screenshot only tells half the epic story, with just 2 points separating the top 4 teams and CSKA Moscow pipping Zenith St Petersburg and Dumats on Goal Difference. What makes this remarkable is the fact that the 1st differential in Russia is head to head record!! Both teams won their home game by the same margin.
    However, to add another twist to the story, neither of the top 2 teams won on the last day! CSKA lost at home 1-2 to 7th placed Rostov, but Petersburg could not capitalise by only drawing 1-1 away to 6th placed Sovetov on the last day of the season.

    Phew. Now onto the World Cup 2010, the draw has been made...

    World Cup 2010 Asian Qual 3rd Round Draw
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    Group A Group B
    Australia (47th) Iran (35th)
    Bahrain (40th) Japan (28th)
    Kyrgyzstan (84th) Qatar (45th)
    South Korea (27th) Turkmenistan (74th)

    *World Rankings are in the brackets.
    </pre>

    How to qualify
    1. The top 2 teams in each group automatically qualify for the World Cup.

    2. If you finish 3rd in the group, you face a 2 legged play-off against the 3rd placed team in the other group. The winner of this will then face a 2 legged play-off against the winner of the Oceania Qual section (more likely or not to be New Zealand) and the winner of this tie will qualify for the World Cup.

    So basically, just come in the top 2 or it gets messy!!!


    Both Bahrain and Qatar have surprisingly high rankings so these groups look like they could even be a 4 way contest, not what I had initially presumed would be a 3 way battle.

    Fixtures begin February 2009 and last until August 2009, with everyone playing each other home and away.

    Despite having a Kyrgyzstan player myself, I try and remain as impartial as possible - I think there could well be the dreaded situation of Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan playing each other in that 3rd place playoff!! Now that would add a bit of extra bite to proceedings.

    Hopefully it won't come to that though.

    Alan finally played more than 45 mins for Kyrgystan \o/\o/\o/

    Looks like the manager is seeing what he can do too, 2 goals in the friendlies, put an 8 in each plus a MoM.

    Great win over Vietnam Alan showing his creative side pitching in with 3 assists and a rating of 9.

    A tough World Cup group, Bahrain are beatable, depends on how we do against Australia and South Korea that will be key to qualifying.

    Haha, nah I'm afraid he's a Kyrgyzstani for life now!

    In fact, Halali has received a bid from an English club, but probably not the one you would ideally be hoping for. More to follow tomorrow in the weekly news update.

    I dont quite see it that way, we both should make it easily into the World Cup, but then things will just get a little more interesting.

    The rankings are kind of screwey in mine. Tahiti is ranked in the 70's and weird countries like Venezuela, Slovakia, and Mali are very high up. I think Mali is actually in the top 10.

    Player Cam Match Report
    Weds 3rd Dec: Middlesbrough (19th) v (14th) Charlton - league match

    Marcus Cook starts the game on the bench for Boro. Azeryk will miss all of Boro's Dec matches due to his ankle injury.

    11 minutes gone and Riggott is sent off for Boro for an elbow to the face.
    Despite that though, Yakubu scores for Boro after 28 mintues to give the 10 men the lead. 1-0.

    HT: Middlesbrough 1 v 0 Charlton

    2 minutes into the 2nd half and Huth brings down Darren Bent in the area. Bent makes no mistake from the spot, ironically with Charlton's first shot on goal. 1-1.
    After 64 minutes, Marcus Cook comes on for Petrov. (Apologies for the delayed screenshot, nothing was missed though).
    Cook Intro
    Cook picks up a knock with a couple of minutes to go, but carries on as all 3 subs have been made.

    Week ending Sunday 7th December 2008

    Halali has been granted a work permit and his move to Chesterfield in League One, England will go through on the 1st January 2009.

    This means that it is only my player, Lui, who is not currently in a playable league.

    Libertinho has rejected a contract offer from Hacken.

    The teams now interested in Alan is pretty much a who's who in world football: Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona are now interested in the Sevilla player. This sudden interest has led to Alan being selected for the Sevilla 1st team and scoring 4 times in 5 apps for them - however he hasn't helped himself, he got sent off in the last league game!!

    Sevilla finally playing me \o/ and not a bad scoring record either, shame about the red card.

    But great to know he's attracting interest, hopefully for once it might work out as a transfer!
