  1. From the previous season recap: "Ianoia's football federation Football Association of Republic of Ianoia (FARI) insisted if the competition doesn't change for the better, then Ianoia would pullout of the tournament, instead announcing their intentions to create a yearly international round robin between Le Grout and Koana Islands. Most football bigwigs saw this as a power move by Ianoia, who felt it was their God given right to be the best footballing nation within the Southern Union. Günsovölk meanwhile insisted the competition would continue and extended offers to Le Grout and Koana Islands to participate in the tournament from next season." I'll message you in a few days.
  2. Season 1935/1936 Albaland Football League The 1935–1936 season was the twenty-sixth season of professional football in Albaland. The season ran from 10th of August 1935 and finished on the 9th of May 1936. The season is most famously known within Albaland for the first international match played by the national team when they played Ianoia in two friendly games in Drumoak and Sandwick on the 23rd of May 1936 and the 6th of June 1936 respectively. It also saw a major change within the political landscape of the footballing world throughout the Southern Union, when Ianoia withdrew from participating in the Centaurus Cup. This was a major scandal at the time, particularly as Koana Islands involvement in the Centaurus Cup only transpired after Günsovölk agreed to pay for both their teams travel. Arthur Dixon was stuck between two powerhouses: on one hand, appeasing the financially strong Günsovölk and staying in the Centaurus Cup made good sense on a footballing level, but on the other hand Albaland had strong political and military ties with Ianoia and wouldn't want to upset their strong friendship - particularly with growing unrest in Europe in which all Southern Union nations were mindful of. Division One Crocketford FC needed to do it the hard way but finally won the Christopher Shaw trophy for the first time in their 25-year history. WC United had a three-point lead with 7 games remaining but were eventually overtaken when Crocketford FC smashed United 4-0 away from home with three games remaining. Rigside Athletic's stranglehold on Division One finally came to an end, finishing third behind WC United, but well clear of Mossbank Thistle in fourth. Both newcomers successfully fought off relegation, despite Grandtully United - making their first ever appearance in the top flight - losing their final three games leaving them teetering on the edge. Going down is Newtonairds and Portgordon Town after just two and three years in Division One respectively.

Expected to finish just 6th, Olympic won promotion and the title with a game to spare despite losing at home to FC Ardbrecknish (1-2). The future still looks bleak for the All Blacks though, with dire financial problems unlikely to help them survive an already un-competitive Division One. Gaining promotion also is Leswalt Old Boys, who bounced straight back up on their first attempt. It wasn't easy for Leswalt who crashed to a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Sporting Douglastown with a game to spare against Oxenfoord Wanderers who moved ahead of Old Boys in the table. Thankfully, two second-half goals cancelled out an early strike from the Wanderers to seal a memorable 2-1 victory. With Division Two expanding to 18 teams next season, only one team dropped down to Division Three, and Perceton FC were the unlucky ones. Division Three champions last season, Perceton picked up just 7 points in the back-half of the season to finish dead last. Ordhead Athletic FC were stone last at the midway point before going on a charge in the back-half of the season to avoid the drop by 6 points.

Crocketford Athletic ensured the city had a double celebration following Crocketford FC's Division One title when they gained promotion to the second tier for an instant return thanks to a 3-0 thumping of Isle of Iona FC with two games to spare. Sandyhills Rovers provided the shock of the season within the division, claiming the third and final promotion spot with a game to spare following a 1-1 draw with Champions Marypark. Having spent 8 long years in Division Three, Rovers looked likely to miss out on promotion once more when Torthorwald United - performing much better than expected - had a superior goal difference with three games remaining. However, three straight losses condemned United to a 6th place finish. Kinnordy Monday were one of two teams promoted behind Southerness Wasps last season following the re-alignment of the Football League. Their adventure into the League was short lived however, following a 1-2 home loss to Marypark on the final day and Blackford Heath - the other newcomer - defeating last years Division 'A' Champions Southerness Wasps, 2-1.

Collieries went into the final as huge underdogs, partly as they were the first Division Two team to make the Cup final in Unified Cup history, and it showed. Crocketford weren't really troubled amassing 20 shots to 9 but needing 60 minutes to finally put the ball in the back of the net. A late goal six minutes from the end dashed the hopes of Arradoul who seemingly had the whole of Albaland willing them to victory. Kinlochewe FC deserves a special mention, with the Combined Counties Division 'B' side reaching the Fourth Round, before eventually collapsing to a 4-0 loss at the hands of Newtonairds. They did claim a huge scalp in the previous round however, defeating Division One outfit Donibristle Juniors, 1-0.

Paterson's squad of 18 looked like this: GK: Mitchell Crawford (Rigside Athletic) FB: Colin Bell (Leswalt Old Boys) CB: Andrew Milne (Crocketford FC) FB: Ian Douglas (Forfar City) HB: Euan Gibson (Rigside Athletic) HB: Haris Mackay (Strathmiglo Rangers) IF: Matthew Wood (Rigside Athletic) IF: Patrick Wilson (Donibristle Juniors) W: John Russell (Crocketford FC) ST: Connor Johnstone (Crocketford FC) W: Brian Wilson (WC United) Bench: Bryce Muir (Port Bannatyne Anchor), Ramsay Moore (Port Bannatyne Anchor), Alistair Macginnis (Westfield Olympic), James Lennox (Strathmiglo Celtic), Gilchrist Cummins (Crocketford FC), Dennis Gordon (Crocketford FC), Allan Macdonald (Royal Arrina FC) After a dour 0-0 draw in Drumoak the week before in which neither team looked likely to score, the second game in Sandwick was much more exciting and was played in front of a capacity crowd of 26,000 at AFC Sandwick's home ground. Haris Mackay gave the home side the lead after 10 minutes, but Ianoia struck back 17 minutes later and then took the lead 13 minutes from the end to take victory. Despite the disappointing results, the matches were quite the talking point in Albaland, and talk of the Centaurus Cup was almost non-existent. With Ianoia showing their intent to qualify for the 1938 World Cup in France; Arthur Dixon put feelers out at possibly bringing an end Albaland's involvement in the Centaurus Cup. 23rd May 1936, Drumoak - Albaland 0-0 Ianoia 6th June 1936, Sandwick - Albaland 1-2 Ianoia Centaurus Cup The seventh annual Centaurus Cup was played in the city of Tapfer, Günsovölk. Following Ianoia withdrawing their entries to the tournament, both Koana Islands and Le Grout were formally invited to participate but despite both football associations still considered amateur, only Koana Islands accepted the invitation. The event was one of the most lopsided competitions in Southern Union football history, with both Günsovölk entrants VfL Druten Stadt and VfB Mächtstadt remaining undefeated against foreign teams with the former scoring 13 goals and conceding just three. Albaland also suffered humiliation at the hands of amateur outfit Ny Aucklanda AIF who stunned both Crocketford FC and Arradoul Collieries. Crocketford FC were without their dynamic duo of John Russell and Connor Johnstone as well as centerback Andrew Milne, winger Gilchrist Cummins and goalkeeper Dennis Gordon who all remained at home on international duty. With the Centaurus Cup fast falling out of favour within the Southern Union, Günsovölk officially withdrew from the competition at the end of the season, and Arthur Dixon admitted he failed to see the use in playing the amateur teams of Koana Islands.

Each season, the teams points are divided by the number of games played and then multiplied by the division. That result is then multiplied by four for the most recent season; multiplied by 2 for the season before that and not multiplied at all three seasons ago. Bonus points will be awarded based on winning cups, and general activity within the thread and will be done so at my discretion. Helping to flesh out the history by naming players, designing kits/logos etc. will help with receiving bonus points. - Divisions are weighted at a 50% reduction from the previous tier.

  6. Season 1934/1935 Albaland Football League The 1934–1935 season was the twenty-fifth season of professional football in Albaland. The season ran from 11th of August 1934 and finished on the 11th of May 1935. After the frustration of the Unified Cup final last season, teams agreed to two changes to the Unified Cup beginning from this season. Firstly, all Qualifying rounds will consist of a home and an away leg, with the winner on aggregate progressing to the next round. The other agreement was starting from the First Round onwards, any match-ups finishing in a draw will see only one replay. Should the replay also finish in a draw, the game will go to extra time and then a penalty shootout. Strangely, the first Cup Final with the new rules in place needed a penalty shoot-out to decide the winner. In other news, with international football starting to take shape across the world, Ianoia's football federation approached Albaland's and proposed two friendly games to be played in Ianoia's capital McCutchen during the next off-season. Arthur Dixon believed this to be a great idea and hastily set about organising the national team despite knowing full well it would clash with the Centaurus Cup, potentially hurting the two representative teams who of late had already started to struggle on the international stage. Division One Despite going into the season not as favourites for the first time in three years, Rigside Athletic brushed aside their closest challenges to seal their 3rd consecutive title and 10th overall. Crocketford FC - title favourites for the first time - buckled under the pressure and struggled to close within three points of Athletic to eventually finish third behind Strathmiglo Rangers who had their best finish since winning the Division in 1923-1924. Newtonairds successfully avoided relegation to Division Two for their first time ever, whilst Forfar City also had a successful return to the top flight with both finishing well clear of the drop zone. Leswalt Old Boys' relegation was confirmed following a thrilling 3-4 loss to Royal Arrina FC in Round 27 and manager Donald Douglas was relieved of his duties the following weekend when Old Boys were thumped 6-0 away to AFC Sandwick who were also relegated. It was a little morale boost for AFC who had battled bravely against the drop for four years.

It was a much celebrated title for Juniors who were dire financial straights following their relegation, but a strong Cup run last season seemed to right the ship. Joining Donibristle in the top flight is Grandtully United who will play Division One football for the first time in their history having gained entrance into the Football League upon the formation of Division Three, and subsequently gaining promotion to Division Two the following year, where they have remained since. A 1-1 home draw over Oxenfoord Wanderers was enough to secure promotion ahead of St. Michael's Angels. It was a mixed bag for the teams who gained promotion from Division Three last season, with Glenlonan United securing their safety and stopping the yo-yo effect that had plagued the club for five years. Meanwhile a 1-0 home victory over Sporting Douglastown helped alleviate some of the pressure on Sorbie Terriers boss Ruben Watson who couldn't prevent his team ending their first season outside Division Three from relegation. Joining Sorbie is Crocketford Athletic who slumped to relegation having narrowly avoided it the season before.

Victory was extra sweet for The Black & Whites, who hadn't won any silverware since the team's inception in 1916 despite several promotions and relegation's between Division's Two and Three. Balmullo Thistle make an instant return to Division Two, thanks to Marypark's 0-1 loss to Torthorwald United. Despite Division Three expanding to 18 teams next season, Kirkholm City had the dubious honour of losing their Football League status for the first time after a thirteen year stay in Division Three. Coming up from the Combined Counties Division 'A' is Kinnordy Monday and Blackford Heath - both making their Football League debuts - as well as Southerness Wasps who wrapped up the title and made an instant return; claiming their success in the Cup last season helped put the club in a better financial situation.

Having drawn 1-1 in the first game, the replay was a dour 0-0 draw, that forced extra time and then penalties for the first time in Cup Final history. Crocketford FC prevailed 4-1 from the spot but nothing could hide the disappointment from the team who were still to win Division One. Balmullo Thistle captured the minds of football fans across the country when they reached the Quarter-Finals for the first time in their history having stunned Mossbank Thistle 2-1 in the Fourth Round. Balmullo also went into the record books for becoming the first team to win a Cup match with penalties, knocking out non-league team Heroes of '76 ironically 7-6 on penalties.

Most football bigwigs saw this as a power move by Ianoia, who felt it was their God given right to be the best footballing nation within the Southern Union. Günsovölk meanwhile insisted the competition would continue and extended offers to Le Grout and Koana Islands to participate in the tournament from next season.

Each season, the teams points are divided by the number of games played and then multiplied by the division. That result is then multiplied by four for the most recent season; multiplied by 2 for the season before that and not multiplied at all three seasons ago. Bonus points will be awarded based on winning cups, and general activity within the thread and will be done so at my discretion. Helping to flesh out the history by naming players, designing kits/logos etc. will help with receiving bonus points. - Divisions are weighted at a 50% reduction from the previous tier. Tier 1 is 1.000, Tier 2 is .500, Tier 3 is 0.250 etc. - Users may change any of their teams' tactical approaches between seasons. To do so, just post in this thread notifying me of any change. - Randomness is the new random number added to help the teams fluctuate more frequently. Use this number to help with any role-playing (for example: a high negative number could be a change of manager, the loss of a star player etc., and a positive number could be a new signing, investment in the grounds to entice fans etc.) History YEAR DIVISION ONE DIVISION TWO DIVISION THREE UNIFIED CUP 1910-11 Rigside Athletic - - - 1911-12 WC United St. Michael’s Angels - - 1912-13 WC United [2] Royal Arrina FC - - 1913-14 WC United [3] AFC Sandwick - Oxenfoord Wanderers (1-0, Strathmiglo Celtic) 1914-15 Strathmiglo Celtic Ordhead Athletic FC - WC United (3-0, Rigside Athletic) 1915-16 Strathmiglo Celtic [2] Skipness Thistle - Port Bannatyne Anchor (3-2, Westfield Olympic) 1916-17 Strathmiglo Celtic [3] Glenelg Miners' Union - Strathmiglo Celtic (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1917-18 Oxenfoord Wanderers Drumoak IE - Rigside Athletic (1-0, Rigside Port Authority) 1918-19 WC United [4] Ordhead Athletic FC [2] - Strathmiglo Celtic [2] (2-1, Oxenfoord Wanderers) 1919-20 WC United [5] Donibristle Juniors - Oxenfoord Wanderers [2] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1920-21 Rigside Athletic [2] Newtonairds - WC United [2] (1-0, Rigside Athletic) 1921-22 Glenelg Miners' Union Mossbank Thistle - Strathmiglo Celtic [3] (1-0r, WC United) 1922-23 Strathmiglo Rangers Royal Arrina FC [2] Kirkpatrick Town Glenelg Miners' Union (2-0, WC United) 1923-24 Strathmiglo Rangers [2] Port Bannatyne Anchor Grandtully United Strathmiglo Celtic [4] (2-1, Arduaine Albion) 1924-25 Rigside Athletic [3] Leswalt Old Boys Wigtown Wanderers WC United [3] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1925-26 WC United [6] Portgordon Town FC Ardbrecknish WC United [4] (3-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1926-27 WC United [7] Leswalt Old Boys [2] Ordhead Athletic FC Mossbank Thistle (1-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1927-28 Rigside Athletic [4] Glenlonan United Maryburgh Templars Glenelg Miners' Union [2] (2-0, Rigside Athletic) 1928-29 Rigside Athletic [5] Leswalt Old Boys [3] Balmullo Thistle Arduaine Albion (3-0, Royal Arrina FC) 1929-30 Rigside Athletic [6] Portgordon Town [2] FC Ardbrecknish [2] Rigside Athletic [2] (2-1, Mossbank Thistle) 1930-31 Rigside Athletic [7] AFC Sandwick [2] Arradoul Collieries Arduaine Albion [2] (2-1, Rigside Port Authority) 1931-32 WC United [8] Leswalt Old Boys [4] Glenlonan United Rigside Athletic [3] (2-0, Mossbank Thistle) 1932-33 Rigside Athletic [8] Portgordon Town [3] Maryburgh Templars [2] Crocketford FC (3-0, WC United) 1933-34 Rigside Athletic [9] Newtonairds [2] Glenlonan United [2] Rigside Athletic [4] (1-0r, Crocketford FC) 1934-35 Rigside Athletic [10] Donibristle Juniors [2] Perceton FC Crocketford FC [2] (0-0p, WC United) Team Sign-Up 1935/1936 Users both old and new are encouraged to continue submitting teams for inclusion into the Football world of Albaland.

  8. Season 1933/1934 Albaland Football League The 1933–1934 season was the twenty-fourth season of professional football in Albaland. The season ran from 12th of August 1933 and finished on the 26th of May 1934. Following growing pressure, league commissioner Arthur Dixon took expanding the divisions to 18 teams each to a vote and was overwhelmingly approved by all member teams. Like a thorn in his side, Dixon bowed to pressure from the Combined Counties League commissioner Charles Daly to expand the divisions from below. At the completion of next season, three teams will be promoted from Combined Counties League Division 'A' for three straight seasons. At the end of 1935-1936, Division Two will grow to 18, and the year after Division One will expand by two. Once all divisions have expanded, the current number of teams promoted and relegated will resume. Arthur Dixon soon had another conundrum to deal with during his reign following the Unified Cup Final which needed three matches to determine the winner. The third - and final game - was played on the 26th of May, the same day Rigside Athletic and Crocketford FC played their opening games of the Centaurus Cup. This caused both teams to send reserve squads to the Centaurus Cup as both saw the Unified Cup as more important. Teams throughout Albaland called for reform of the Unified Cup, and implored a limit on the number of replays, with smaller teams claiming the replays were costing teams a fortune in travel and bigger teams believing the absurd amount of replays was hurting the standard of football. Meanwhile in Italy, the Italian national team (pictured) defeated Czechoslovakia 2-1 in the second ever Football World Cup. The World Cup caught the imagination of the football fans throughout the Southern Union, with calls for an Albaland national team to take part in the 1938 world cup scheduled to be played in France. Division One WC United and Rigside Athletic both led the league for certain periods throughout the season but it was the latter who clinched their 9th title and 6th in 7 years ahead of Crocketford FC who finished runners-up for the second successive season and never led the league at any point during the season. mid-table side Port Bannatyne Anchor was the surprise outfit of the season, sealing fourth place for their highest ever finish in the top flight, and even briefly led the league after 4 matches. Portgordon Town and Strathmiglo Celtic both successfully avoided the drop on their return to Division One, and were never in danger as Westfield Olympic and St. Michael's Angels tumbled down to Division Two after two and fifteen years respectively in the top flight. The Angel's didn't win a game until Round 23 (1-0, Strathmiglo Celtic) and had their relegation confirmed in a 2-1 loss to Glenelg Miners' Union with three games to spare.

The result helped lift Forfar City back into Division One having drawn 1-1 with Collieries the weekend before and then winning three on the bounce to make an instant return. Donibristle Juniors ensured they are in a great position to return to the top flight next season despite a disappointing season in which they spent much of it in the lower half of the table. Thankfully a decent cup run in which Juniors reached the semi-finals gave the club some much needed funds to spend on rejuvenating the squad. Maryburgh Templars and Crocketford Athletic both survived on their instant returns to the second tier relatively unscathed during the season, with back-to-back wins over Drumoak IE (3-1) and a great display over Forfar City (3-1) in Rounds 20 and 21 helping to turn Athletic's results around. At the bottom, Marypark finally succumbed to the drop they had been teetering on the edge with for the last five years. Ironically, the team that will join them - Balmullo Thistle - also gained promotion to Division Two with Marypark in 1929. Thistle will feel aggrieved, having been far stronger than the table suggests, but two wins in the back-half of the season cost them dearly.

Joining them is Sorbie Terriers who have been part of Division Three since it's inception in the 1922-1923 season. The Terriers overtook Peebles FC with two games remaining having sat third for much of season. Southerness Wasps football league status was short-lived as they plunged back down into the Combined Counties League with a mini collapse towards the end of the season seeing them drop from 11th - where they hovered for much of the season - to last within the final 6 matches.

FC Stook Günsovölk History: Centaurus Cup The 1933-1934 Cenataurus Cup was held in Drumoak and was won by reigning Günsovölk Champion Ruigoord FC who claimed their second Centaurus Cup and third by a team from Günsovölk. Without losing a game, the Champions smashed Crocketford FC 5-1 as both Albaland teams slumped to finish 5th and 6th with the lone victory coming when they played each other. With the 1934 World Cup captivating the Southern Union, the Centaurus Cup was pushed to small articles within national newspapers, and barely made the news on the radio outside of Albaland. With Le Grout and Koana Islands football associations preferring to remain amateur, Ianoia's football association called for the scraping of the Centaurus Cup and an international competition between all nations within the Southern Union to take its place - something Charles Daly agreed with publicly. Günsovölk preferred to keep the tournament and insisted international football was a fad and would devalue football throughout the Southern Union.

Each season, the teams points are divided by the number of games played and then multiplied by the division. That result is then multiplied by four for the most recent season; multiplied by 2 for the season before that and not multiplied at all three seasons ago. Bonus points will be awarded based on winning cups, and general activity within the thread and will be done so at my discretion. Helping to flesh out the history by naming players, designing kits/logos etc. will help with receiving bonus points. - Divisions are weighted at a 50% reduction from the previous tier. Tier 1 is 1.000, Tier 2 is .500, Tier 3 is 0.250 etc. - Users may change any of their teams' tactical approaches between seasons. To do so, just post in this thread notifying me of any change. - Randomness is the new random number added to help the teams fluctuate more frequently. Use this number to help with any role-playing (for example: a high negative number could be a change of manager, the loss of a star player etc., and a positive number could be a new signing, investment in the grounds to entice fans etc.) History YEAR DIVISION ONE DIVISION TWO DIVISION THREE UNIFIED CUP 1910-11 Rigside Athletic - - - 1911-12 WC United St. Michael’s Angels - - 1912-13 WC United [2] Royal Arrina FC - - 1913-14 WC United [3] AFC Sandwick - Oxenfoord Wanderers (1-0, Strathmiglo Celtic) 1914-15 Strathmiglo Celtic Ordhead Athletic FC - WC United (3-0, Rigside Athletic) 1915-16 Strathmiglo Celtic [2] Skipness Thistle - Port Bannatyne Anchor (3-2, Westfield Olympic) 1916-17 Strathmiglo Celtic [3] Glenelg Miners' Union - Strathmiglo Celtic (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1917-18 Oxenfoord Wanderers Drumoak IE - Rigside Athletic (1-0, Rigside Port Authority) 1918-19 WC United [4] Ordhead Athletic FC [2] - Strathmiglo Celtic [2] (2-1, Oxenfoord Wanderers) 1919-20 WC United [5] Donibristle Juniors - Oxenfoord Wanderers [2] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1920-21 Rigside Athletic [2] Newtonairds - WC United [2] (1-0, Rigside Athletic) 1921-22 Glenelg Miners' Union Mossbank Thistle - Strathmiglo Celtic [3] (1-0r, WC United) 1922-23 Strathmiglo Rangers Royal Arrina FC [2] Kirkpatrick Town Glenelg Miners' Union (2-0, WC United) 1923-24 Strathmiglo Rangers [2] Port Bannatyne Anchor Grandtully United Strathmiglo Celtic [4] (2-1, Arduaine Albion) 1924-25 Rigside Athletic [3] Leswalt Old Boys Wigtown Wanderers WC United [3] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1925-26 WC United [6] Portgordon Town FC Ardbrecknish WC United [4] (3-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1926-27 WC United [7] Leswalt Old Boys [2] Ordhead Athletic FC Mossbank Thistle (1-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1927-28 Rigside Athletic [4] Glenlonan United Maryburgh Templars Glenelg Miners' Union [2] (2-0, Rigside Athletic) 1928-29 Rigside Athletic [5] Leswalt Old Boys [3] Balmullo Thistle Arduaine Albion (3-0, Royal Arrina FC) 1929-30 Rigside Athletic [6] Portgordon Town [2] FC Ardbrecknish [2] Rigside Athletic [2] (2-1, Mossbank Thistle) 1930-31 Rigside Athletic [7] AFC Sandwick [2] Arradoul Collieries Arduaine Albion [2] (2-1, Rigside Port Authority) 1931-32 WC United [8] Leswalt Old Boys [4] Glenlonan United Rigside Athletic [3] (2-0, Mossbank Thistle) 1932-33 Rigside Athletic [8] Portgordon Town [3] Maryburgh Templars [2] Crocketford FC (3-0, WC United) 1933-34 Rigside Athletic [9] Newtonairds [2] Glenlonan United [2] Rigside Athletic [4] (1-0r, Crocketford FC) Team Sign-Up 1934/1935 Users both old and new are encouraged to continue submitting teams for inclusion into the Football world of Albaland.

Team Voting (Answer in thread) - Should the Unified Cup be reformed to one replay and then extra time from the First Round onwards?
  9. Yeah, I think I've found a way to break-up the yo-yoing and I've already incorporated it for the next season, so we'll see how it plays out. For the top D1 teams winning year after year it's a bit trickier. I'm testing whether the champions get no positive or negative bonus points at the end of each season so teams 2nd place and below will potentially close the gap much easier than before and should help prevent teams from repeating year after year. Rigside Athletic for instance got a huge Bonus Point jump the season before and hence had a huge rating advantage over Crocketford FC going into last season. If that didn't happen, we may have had a new champion. I'll see how that does up until WW2, and then I might step in and manually tinker with some bonus points. I don't really want to do that as I like to stay as impartial as I can to prevent claims of favouritism.

  11. Season 1932/1933 Albaland Football League The 1932–1933 season was the twenty-third season of professional football in Albaland. The season ran from 13th of August 1932 and finished on the 13th of May 1933. With six of the nine teams changing divisions within the Football League returning to their previous division at the end of this season, Arthur Dixon came under fire from two fronts: the first, from Charles Daly, who insisted expanding Division Three was detrimental to the quality of football at lower levels, and essentially guaranteed all Division One and Two teams would get stronger. This was further emphasised with the Centaurus Cup, which whilst growing in popularity within Ianoia and Gunsovolk, but was seen as snobbish and "elitism" amongst the footballing fraternity in Albaland. Forfar City owner Tomas McKay (pictured, above) pointed out that since 1924 only two teams - Rigside Athletic and WC United - had actually won Division One and felt a shake up was needed before the game was tarnished with clubs too big for Division One: "Perhaps we should consider increasing the size of divisions from 16 to 18, or even 20 and in the process leave the number of relegation spots to just two. This would then allow the so-called "smaller" outfits more time in which to settle and assimilate in the division, and in the process become more competitive". Division One After inheriting first place on Matchday 10 from Crocketford FC, Rigside Athletic were pushed all the way to their 8th Division One title to once again tie with WC United who clinched their 8th title the previous season. United relinquished the Christopher Shaw trophy without so much as a whimper, slumping to 4th place behind Mossbank Thistle who improved from their 7th place last season. Crocketford FC, who briefly retook the championship lead with four games to go, are still to win Division One, despite finishing inside the top 4 for the last four seasons. Newly promoted side Leswalt Old Boys hit the ground running and led the league after 8 games with 5 wins and two draws. They eventually fell back to the median to finishing a comfortable 11th, 7 points clear of the drop and just above fellow newcomers Westfield Olympic. Forfar City's eight year stay in the top flight came to end with a game to spare when they collapsed to a 2-0 away defeat at the hands of Donibristle Juniors - who were behind them in the standings and whose relegation was already confirmed the week before. With dire finances and poor attendances, the future of Juniors looks bleak.

With strong squads, 'airds and Thistle never got close to promotion, finishing 5 points behind Strathmiglo Celtic and 6 points behind eventual champions Portgordon Town. No such frustrations at the other end of the table, as Ordhead Athletic FC drew 2-2 with Arradoul Collieries to condemn Glenlonan United to an instant return to Division Three along with Perceton FC. The rather "samey" results from Division Two gave league commissioner Arthur Dixon a conundrum; is expanding Division Three and potentially diluting the quality of football in the third tier a solution to the ever-growing gulf between the three tiers of the Football League.

The city of Sorgenfrei held the event and was won by Nempnett who were making their second appearance in the competition. The tournament was not without controversy however, when Ivychurch were awarded a 90th minute penalty in their final game against Ruigoord FC. Ruigoord, playing in front of a packed stadium full of their own fans felt they had been unfairly penalised the day before when once again an 87th minute penalty cost them a draw in a 1-0 defeat to Rigside Athletic. The Günsovölk Football Association were incensed at both referees who hailed from Albaland and Ianoia respectively, and insisted if the quality of refereeing was not improved next season, they would pull out of the Centaurus Cup. Crocketford FC was the best of the two teams representing Albaland, finishing third.

Each season, the teams points are divided by the number of games played and then multiplied by the division. That result is then multiplied by four for the most recent season; multiplied by 2 for the season before that and not multiplied at all three seasons ago. Bonus points will be awarded based on winning cups, and general activity within the thread and will be done so at my discretion. Helping to flesh out the history by naming players, designing kits/logos etc. will help with receiving bonus points. - Divisions are weighted at a 50% reduction from the previous tier. Tier 1 is 1.000, Tier 2 is .500, Tier 3 is 0.250 etc. - Users may change any of their teams' tactical approaches between seasons. To do so, just post in this thread notifying me of any change. - Randomness is the new random number added to help the teams fluctuate more frequently. Use this number to help with any role-playing (for example: a high negative number could be a change of manager, the loss of a star player etc., and a positive number could be a new signing, investment in the grounds to entice fans etc.) History YEAR DIVISION ONE DIVISION TWO DIVISION THREE UNIFIED CUP 1910-11 Rigside Athletic - - - 1911-12 WC United St. Michael’s Angels - - 1912-13 WC United [2] Royal Arrina FC - - 1913-14 WC United [3] AFC Sandwick - Oxenfoord Wanderers (1-0, Strathmiglo Celtic) 1914-15 Strathmiglo Celtic Ordhead Athletic FC - WC United (3-0, Rigside Athletic) 1915-16 Strathmiglo Celtic [2] Skipness Thistle - Port Bannatyne Anchor (3-2, Westfield Olympic) 1916-17 Strathmiglo Celtic [3] Glenelg Miners' Union - Strathmiglo Celtic (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1917-18 Oxenfoord Wanderers Drumoak IE - Rigside Athletic (1-0, Rigside Port Authority) 1918-19 WC United [4] Ordhead Athletic FC [2] - Strathmiglo Celtic [2] (2-1, Oxenfoord Wanderers) 1919-20 WC United [5] Donibristle Juniors - Oxenfoord Wanderers [2] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1920-21 Rigside Athletic [2] Newtonairds - WC United [2] (1-0, Rigside Athletic) 1921-22 Glenelg Miners' Union Mossbank Thistle - Strathmiglo Celtic [3] (1-0r, WC United) 1922-23 Strathmiglo Rangers Royal Arrina FC [2] Kirkpatrick Town Glenelg Miners' Union (2-0, WC United) 1923-24 Strathmiglo Rangers [2] Port Bannatyne Anchor Grandtully United Strathmiglo Celtic [4] (2-1, Arduaine Albion) 1924-25 Rigside Athletic [3] Leswalt Old Boys Wigtown Wanderers WC United [3] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1925-26 WC United [6] Portgordon Town FC Ardbrecknish WC United [4] (3-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1926-27 WC United [7] Leswalt Old Boys [2] Ordhead Athletic FC Mossbank Thistle (1-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1927-28 Rigside Athletic [4] Glenlonan United Maryburgh Templars Glenelg Miners' Union [2] (2-0, Rigside Athletic) 1928-29 Rigside Athletic [5] Leswalt Old Boys [3] Balmullo Thistle Arduaine Albion (3-0, Royal Arrina FC) 1929-30 Rigside Athletic [6] Portgordon Town [2] FC Ardbrecknish [2] Rigside Athletic [2] (2-1, Mossbank Thistle) 1930-31 Rigside Athletic [7] AFC Sandwick [2] Arradoul Collieries Arduaine Albion [2] (2-1, Rigside Port Authority) 1931-32 WC United [8] Leswalt Old Boys [4] Glenlonan United Rigside Athletic [3] (2-0, Mossbank Thistle) 1932-33 Rigside Athletic [8] Portgordon Town [3] Maryburgh Templars [2] Crocketford FC (3-0, WC United) Team Sign-Up 1933/1934 Users both old and new are encouraged to continue submitting teams for inclusion into the Football world of Albaland.

  12. Season 1931/1932 Albaland Football League The 1931–1932 season was the twenty-second season of professional football in Albaland. The season ran from 8th of August 1931 and finished on the 14th of May 1932. By a near 70% majority, Arthur Dixon was elected as Football League commissioner prior to the start of the season following on from Christopher Shaw who ran the competition from the league 's inception in 1910-1911. Dixon - whose manifesto focused on two parallel division's in Division Three - East and West - was quick to rename the trophy awarded to the Division One winner to the Christopher Shaw trophy in honour of the former commissioner as his first order of business. Incumbent Football League commissioner Christopher Shaw announced he would not be running at the following elections to take place prior to the 1931-32 season, and instead announced his retirement at the age of 62. Shaw had been in office since the Football League's inaugural 1910-1911 season. Charles Daly - the losing candidate during the election - vehemently opposed expanding Division Three until Albaland pulled out of the Centaurus Cup, claiming the competition was "costly, draining [to the players] and above all, not a fair competition for all Albaland teams". Daly proposed expanding Division One and Two to 18 teams, and then expanding Division Three to two divisions of 16 based on geography (east and west). This was met with much scepticism amongst non-league football clubs, who claimed smaller non-league teams were just not up to the standard of current Division Three clubs. Division One Following a four-year dry spell, WC United regained the Division One title and lifted the newly-named Christopher Shaw trophy on the final day with a 2-1 victory over Strathmiglo Rangers. Former champions Rigside Athletic finished second ahead of Glenelg Miners' Union on goal difference following their 0-0 draw with Royal Arrina FC on the final day. Royal Arrina FC was the best of the two newly-promoted teams, finishing a respectable 10th despite an 8-0 thumping at the hands of the eventual Champions. AFC Sandwick finished where they were predicted to finish in 12th place. Portgordon Town's two-season stay came to a disappointing end, losing 2-1 at home to Forfar City on the final day and being relegated on goal difference as Donibristle Juniors clung on to their Division One status. Joining Portgordon Town in Division Two next year is Strathmiglo Celtic who slumped to their first ever relegation since the team began play in the inaugural 1910-1911 season. Expected to finish 10th, Celtic struggled to keep their heads above the drop zone, and two wins in the back-half of the season sealed their fate.

Skipness Thistle will rue what could've been, leading the league for much of the season before losing a four-point lead over Westfield Olympic for the final promotion spot, with six games remaining to eventually finish 3 points behind. Arradoul Collieries first year in Division Two was a successful one, finishing 11th including a great 2-1 home win over Oxenfoord Wanderers. Crocketford Athletic didn't fair so well, dropping straight back down to Division Three along with Maryburgh Templars whose four-year stay in the second tier came to an end following Marypark's 0-1 win over Ordhead Athletic FC.

Moving into first place after just five games, United never looked troubled finishing ahead of Perceton FC who were also relegated last season. Dunlop Vale was the best of the also-rans, finishing 5 points behind Perceton FC. In another clear sign of non-league football not being up to par, Southwick United dropped straight back down to Combined Counties Division 'A' without so much as a whimper towards the end of the season, with ten straight losses costing them dearly; prior to that streak, they were sitting two points clear of the relegation spot in 14th.

Nord Shoof SC dominated the competition finishing with a 100% record to give Günsovölk their second Centaurus Cup champion since Ruigoord FC won in 1929/1930. Rigside Athletic was the best of the rest whilst WC United put on a poor showing. With the competition coming under scrutiny following Charles Daly's comments, the performances did Albaland football no favours.

Each season, the teams points are divided by the number of games played and then multiplied by the division. That result is then multiplied by four for the most recent season; multiplied by 2 for the season before that and not multiplied at all three seasons ago. Bonus points will be awarded based on winning cups, and general activity within the thread and will be done so at my discretion. Helping to flesh out the history by naming players, designing kits/logos etc. will help with receiving bonus points. - Divisions are weighted at a 50% reduction from the previous tier. Tier 1 is 1.000, Tier 2 is .500, Tier 3 is 0.250 etc. - Users may change any of their teams' tactical approaches between seasons. To do so, just post in this thread notifying me of any change. - Randomness is the new random number added to help the teams fluctuate more frequently. Use this number to help with any role-playing (for example: a high negative number could be a change of manager, the loss of a star player etc., and a positive number could be a new signing, investment in the grounds to entice fans etc.) History YEAR DIVISION ONE DIVISION TWO DIVISION THREE UNIFIED CUP 1910-11 Rigside Athletic - - - 1911-12 WC United St. Michael’s Angels - - 1912-13 WC United [2] Royal Arrina FC - - 1913-14 WC United [3] AFC Sandwick - Oxenfoord Wanderers (1-0, Strathmiglo Celtic) 1914-15 Strathmiglo Celtic Ordhead Athletic FC - WC United (3-0, Rigside Athletic) 1915-16 Strathmiglo Celtic [2] Skipness Thistle - Port Bannatyne Anchor (3-2, Westfield Olympic) 1916-17 Strathmiglo Celtic [3] Glenelg Miners' Union - Strathmiglo Celtic (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1917-18 Oxenfoord Wanderers Drumoak IE - Rigside Athletic (1-0, Rigside Port Authority) 1918-19 WC United [4] Ordhead Athletic FC [2] - Strathmiglo Celtic [2] (2-1, Oxenfoord Wanderers) 1919-20 WC United [5] Donibristle Juniors - Oxenfoord Wanderers [2] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1920-21 Rigside Athletic [2] Newtonairds - WC United [2] (1-0, Rigside Athletic) 1921-22 Glenelg Miners' Union Mossbank Thistle - Strathmiglo Celtic [3] (1-0r, WC United) 1922-23 Strathmiglo Rangers Royal Arrina FC [2] Kirkpatrick Town Glenelg Miners' Union (2-0, WC United) 1923-24 Strathmiglo Rangers [2] Port Bannatyne Anchor Grandtully United Strathmiglo Celtic [4] (2-1, Arduaine Albion) 1924-25 Rigside Athletic [3] Leswalt Old Boys Wigtown Wanderers WC United [3] (3-1, Arduaine Albion) 1925-26 WC United [6] Portgordon Town FC Ardbrecknish WC United [4] (3-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1926-27 WC United [7] Leswalt Old Boys [2] Ordhead Athletic FC Mossbank Thistle (1-0, Donibristle Juniors) 1927-28 Rigside Athletic [4] Glenlonan United Maryburgh Templars Glenelg Miners' Union [2] (2-0, Rigside Athletic) 1928-29 Rigside Athletic [5] Leswalt Old Boys [3] Balmullo Thistle Arduaine Albion (3-0, Royal Arrina FC) 1929-30 Rigside Athletic [6] Portgordon Town [2] FC Ardbrecknish [2] Rigside Athletic [2] (2-1, Mossbank Thistle) 1930-31 Rigside Athletic [7] AFC Sandwick [2] Arradoul Collieries Arduaine Albion [2] (2-1, Rigside Port Authority) 1931-32 WC United [8] Leswalt Old Boys [4] Glenlonan United Rigside Athletic [3] (2-0, Mossbank Thistle) Team Sign-Up 1932/1933 Users both old and new are encouraged to continue submitting teams for inclusion into the Football world of Albaland.

  13. Anyone keen to carry on? Had a load of **** happen in life when I got back from holidays where my missus got a new job and my old man was rushed to hospital and I just couldn't get the motivation to carry this on. Might reduce the length of my write-ups to keep things a bit easier and we can plow throw seasons a bit quicker if interest is high enough.
  14. Man, don't remind me. Went to the Devils game and the game last night and we played terrible both games, so annoyed Sat right on the glass last night too We fly back on the 28th.
  15. Just did a week in New York for some hockey and basketball games. I'm a big Islanders fan and my missus is a Basketball nut (hate the sport with a passion personally). The last update I did as we sat on a train to Washington DC where we have another week then a few days in Vegas before heading home. We usually do a good 5 week trip but my missus is starting a new job soon so we won't be able to take any time off for a while so this is a sort of "last hurrah" before we settle down for a couple of years and start saving. The random column affects the ratings column on the left so it is already calculated for the following season. It's so if your team has a stellar season and yet goes backwards in the ratings for the following year you know why!
