Welcome to Morocco…
Younes Zaza: Good evening Africa, and welcome to Marrakech!
Younes Zaza: Welcome to viewers here in the auditorium tonight and all over the globe via BATRACER. I’m your host, Younes Zaza!
Younes Zaza: There are eighteen nations in this Semi-Final, but just seven will go through to the Final. The nations have voted for each other, giving 12, 10, and 8 through 1 points in descending order to their favoured nations, based on the countries’ national teams’ performances over the past twelve months. The scores are then accumulated to find our seven leading nations.
Younes Zaza: Unfortunately, there seems to have been a communication breakdown. Algeria, Egypt, Gambia, Guinea, Liberia, Senegal, and Togo all failed to submit votes, and are all deducted 12 points. Cape Verde, Mauritania, and Sierra Leone voted neither here or in last year’s Final, and lose 24 points. Sudan did not vote in last year’s Final, and voted late this time, and lose 18 points. With all this in mind, let’s see the starting table.
Younes Zaza: Let’s officially begin the fourth annual Afrovision Managerial Contest with votes from Sudan and Nigeria!
Posted September 9, 2011
Yeesh, that's not a good turnout. I suspect it's still attributable to the forum outage (lots of people I've not seen around since then) but it's still very disappointing.
Well, I hope the head start does us good.
Younes Zaza: This is Morocco calling Sudan!
Zeinab Badawi: Good evening Morocco. This is Sudan!
Younes Zaza: It’s journalist Zeinab Badawi! Now, Zeinab, rumour has it that Sudan won’t be competing in Afrovision any more?
Zeinab Badawi: That’s true; given the secession of the south of the country, the football association has decided to withdraw from Afrovision indefinitely.
Younes Zaza: That is a shame. Well, Zeinab, would you kindly grace us with your votes?
Zeinab Badawi: Of course;
2: Cape Verde
1: Côte d’Ivoire
8 points go to…Nigeria!
10 points go to……Senegal!
12 points go to…
Zeinab Badawi: Thank you Younes. Thank you Morocco!
Younes Zaza: Thank you Ms. Badawi. Well, those were Sudan’s votes. They give close allies Tyler Burrows’s Egypt 12 points for a second consecutive time. Des Tiny’s Nigeria and Ben Cee’s Nigeria both pick up high points, as do Senegal.
Younes Zaza: This is Morocco calling Nigeria!
Ryan Nelsen: Good evening Morocco!
Younes Zaza: Mr Nelsen, how are you this evening?
Ryan Nelsen: It’s a little bit cold here in Nigeria, but I’m loving the Afrovision Managerial Contest!
Younes Zaza: Thank you Ryan, for your kind praise. Could you please give us Nigeria’s votes?
Ryan Nelsen: Absolutely. Here are the votes from 2010 winners Nigeria:
3: Sierra Leone
Ryan Nelsen: And here are Nigeria’s three biggest votes:
8 points go to…Djibouti!
Ryan Nelsen: Thank you Morocco. See you in the Final, with Nigeria there I hope!
Younes Zaza: Goodnight, Ryan. Ben Cee’s Niger unsurprisingly receive 12 points from Nigeria, while Ricky Nakano’s Senegal take a second consecutive decade. Whoopy Dee’e’s Djibouti have not done too badly either, tallying ten points. Let’s see how that puts things at this early stage.
Younes Zaza: Ben Cee’s Niger are romping away in the lead, but Tyler Burrows’s Egypt would be level, and Ricky Nakano’s Senegal ahead, if not for 12-point deductions. Whoopy Dee’e’s Djibouti are second, while Algeria, Gambia, Guinea, and Andreas Werner's Burkina Faso have yet to pick up any points. They vote next, followed by Djibouti.

Woop. Good start!
Hope i can pip through...

I'm working a conference over the next two days, so won't really have the time to post updates - you might get lucky, but the earliest I can promise you an update is Wednesday afternoon.

It's great to finally see this up and running again. I missed all the action though but can see that Mali got 4th spot.
Luckily I didn't miss any votes
Posted September 19, 2011
I have had NO Semi-Final 2 votes yet!
Younes Zaza: Morocco calling Burkina Faso, can you hear us?
Olivier Sanou: Loud and clear, thank you Morocco.
Younes Zaza: Ah, Burkinabe athlete Olivier Sanou. Burkina Faso haven’t picked up any points yet. How do you feel?
Olivier Sanou: I’m sure good times are just around the corner.
Younes Zaza: Let’s hope so. Anyway, Mr Sanou, please give us the Burkinabe votes.
Olivier Sanou: With pleasure;
Olivier Sanou: Here are Burkina Faso’s three most important votes:
10 points go to……Côte d’Ivoire!
Olivier Sanou: Thanks Morocco. Good night!
Younes Zaza: Good night Burkina Faso! Ben Cee’s Niger and Whoopy Dee’e’s Djibouti continue their good starts, collecting 12 and 8 points respectively. Albert Holstein’s Côte d’Ivoire take ten, while Algeria get their first points of the tournament.
Younes Zaza: Morocco calling Djibouti!
Djibouti: Hello Morocco, this is Djibouti.
Younes Zaza: Djibouti are currently second. Not bad for a nation of 800,000.
Djibouti: Djibouti shall win the Afrovision Managerial Contest!
Younes Zaza: We shouldn’t rule it out at least. Anyway, let’s have some votes!
7: Côte d’Ivoire
6: Burkina Faso
10 points go to……Tunisia!
Djibouti: This is Djibouti, signing out.
Younes Zaza: Phenomenally, Ben Cee’s Niger pick up another 12 points! Mentho Latum’s Tunisia take the decade, while Andreas Werner’s Burkina Faso get their point collection under way with six from Djibouti, to whom they gave eight. Let’s see the latest table.
Writer's Notes: I got it wrong before; there are nine nations voting, not eight.
Younes Zaza: Already, Ben Cee’s Niger are running away with it, with Kleen Shavern’s Gambia and Chip Butty’s Guinea yet to pick up points. We’ll see how that changes as we travel to Côte d’Ivoire and Eritrea for our next votes.
Woooohoooo Gooooo NIGER!!!!
Posted September 20, 2011
Thanks for the ten points!
While Niger is glad to be doing well, we want to see our neighbours follow us through to the final as well.
Posted September 22, 2011
Writer's Notes: I've extended the deadline for Semi-Final 2 votes to Saturday 24th September, at 5.30pm BST. The only votes I've received so far are from chopper99.
Younes Zaza: Good evening Abidjan, can you hear us?
Emmanuel Eboué: Good evening, Younes. Ze show so far is wonderful.
Younes Zaza: Thank you! Côte d’Ivoire are doing pretty well so far.
Emmanuel Eboué: Yes, and ze target this year is the trophy.
Younes Zaza: It’s not beyond you, I’d say. Anyway, do you have something for us?
Emmanuel Eboué: I do. Here are the votes from Côte d’Ivoire:
2: Sierra Leone
Emmanuel Eboué: And here are my country’s three biggest votes:
8 points go to…Guinea!
10 points go to……Mauritania!
Emmanuel Eboué: Thank you Younes. Good night!
Younes Zaza: Côte d’Ivoire there, who treble the score of Andreas Werner’s Burkina Faso with twelve points. Lawrence Lazewski’s Mauritania pick up ten and so get that bit closer to reaching positive figures, while Ben Cee’s Niger’s run comes to an end, and they remain on 43 points.
Younes Zaza: This is Morocco, calling Eritrea!
David Bowie: Eritrea to Major Zaza. Commencing countdown, cameras on.
Younes Zaza: This is ground control to Eritrea, we really need your votes. Now it’s time to give your points, if you dare.
David Bowie: This is Eritrea to ground control, I’m reading them out now, and we’ve voted in a most peculiar way;
David Bowie: Here am I sitting on an armchair, far away from you. These votes are ours too, and there’s nothing I can do;
10 points go to……Sudan!
Younes Zaza: Ground control to Eritrea, your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong. Can you hear me, Eritrea? Can you hear me, Eritrea? Can you hear me, Eritrea? Can you…
Younes Zaza: Kleen Shavern’s Gambia took twelve from Eritrea, and so jump from not having received any points, to having cleared their debt. Algeria, Sudan, Guinea, Mauritania, Cape Verde, and Sierra Leone are all still in negative figures though, and the latter, managed by Cardio Hernandes, are officially eliminated from the tournament. Leaders Niger vote next, and then Tunisia give us our penultimate set of votes.
votes sent Hopefully Equatorial Guinea make it to the finals atleast this year
Three more to go, excluding ourselves.
If we don't qualify, it'll be the biggest calamity that Africa has ever seen...
Posted September 23, 2011
i might be the unlucky one again...
Writer's Notes: I've extended the deadline for Semi-Final 2 votes to Saturday 24th September, at 5.30pm BST. The only votes I've received so far are from chopper99.
Wayhay, I might actually make the final again this year!
Thanks for the points Cote d'Ivoire and Djibouti. Everyone else I'm slightly disappointed in
Oh man. I didn't notice the link including my name : So, if you’re one of the above, or if you’re MikaelS, please fill in the following form, and PM it to me.
I should read the smallprint I guess
Posted September 26, 2011
Younes Zaza: Morocco calling Niger!
Mamadou Tandja: Good evening, Morocco, this is Mamadou Tandja.
Younes Zaza: Ah, ladies and gentlemen, this is Niger’s former President, Mamdou Tandja.
Mamadou Tandja: How do you do?
Younes Zaza: Niger are doing very well at the moment.
Mamadou Tandja: Yes. We shall win Afrovision!
Younes Zaza: That’s the hope. Best of luck with that. In the meantime-
Mamadou Tandja: Yes, yes, our votes. Here we go:
3: Côte d’Ivoire
8 points go to…Algeria!
10 points go to……Burkina Faso!
Mamadou Tandja: Good night Morocco!
Younes Zaza: Good night, Lieutenant Colonel Tandja. You’ll be pleased to know that your votes have secured your place in the Final. Meanwhile, Des Tiny’s Nigeria take an unsurprising twelve points from their neighbours and near-namesakes, while Andreas Werner’s Burkina Faso power into fourth place with the decade.
Younes Zaza: This is Morocco. Can you hear us in Tunisia?
Cesária Évora: Good evening Younes. Good evening Morocco!
Younes Zaza: For some reason, it’s Cape Verdean singer Cesária Évora!
Cesária Évora: Yes, yes, that’s me.
Younes Zaza: Now, Tunisia are in a precarious position here. They are seventh, and could drop out of the qualifying places if they give any points to Côte d’Ivoire. That would leave Morocco to decide their fate.
Cesária Évora: Here are the three biggest votes from Tunisia:
8 points go to…Senegal!
Cesária Évora: Good night sweethearts!
Younes Zaza: Thank you Ms Évora. Chip Butty’s Guinea get an unlikely twelve points from Tunisia, but it isn’t enough to prevent their elimination. Meanwhile, Tunisia themselves drop out of the qualifying places by awarding ten points to Albert Holstein’s Côte d’Ivoire. Let’s see the latest table.
Younes Zaza: Des Tiny’s Nigeria, Ricky Nakano’s Senegal, and Tyler Burrows’s Egypt join Niger in qualifying for the Final. Quandiose Yancy’s Eritrea, among others, are eliminated, leaving Burkina Faso, Djibouti, Côte d’Ivoire, and Tunisia fighting it out for the last three places. The winners will be decided by votes from right here, in Morocco.
A late surge makes things look a lot better for Burkina Faso Thankyou Niger and Tunisia
Niger and Nigeria qualified.
It's party time!
Posted September 28, 2011
Younes Zaza: This is Morocco calling Morocco!
Marouane Chamakh: This is Morocco, responding to Morocco!
Younes Zaza: Hello Morocco!
Marouane Chamakh: Hi Morocco!
Younes Zaza: Marouane Chamakh, I have one thing to say to you; thank you!
Marouane Chamakh: For what?
Younes Zaza: For winning us the Cup of Nations with your Final goal.
Marouane Chamakh: It’s my pleasure!
Younes Zaza: Okay, then, Marouane, please can you finish off Semi-Final 1?
Marouane Chamakh: Here we go, the votes from Morocco:
3: Burkina Faso
1: Sierra Leone
8 points go to…Tunisia!
10 points go to……Egypt!
Marouane Chamakh: Good night, guys! I can’t wait for the Final!
Younes Zaza: Thanks Marouane. Albert Holstein’s Côte d’Ivoire get twelve points from Morocco, and so will definitely be in the Final in a few days’ time. But what about the others?
Younes Zaza: Unfortunately, Mentho Latum’s Tunisia fail to qualify for the Final. Albert Holstein’s Côte d’Ivoire, Andreas Werner’s Burkina Faso, and Whoopy Dee’e’s Djibouti, will, however.
Younes Zaza: That Final will take place soon, but coming up next is our second Semi-Final, where another seven nations will be vying to join our line-up of nine teams in the Final. All that remains now is for me to thank viewers here in the arena, and worldwide via BATRACER, and remind you to tune in tomorrow night! Good night!
Writer’s Notes: Nigeria got 12 points from Niger. Senegal didn’t get any 12-pointers.
Niger is glad to have qualified for the Afrovision Finals for the first time (at last!), and winning our semi-final too.
Thank you everyone. Much appreciated.
Posted September 29, 2011
every year missed by one spot...
Andreas Werner is absolutely delighted to have been able to take Burkina Faso to the finals at the first time of asking, but it was rather touch-and-go for a while - more votes for Burkina Faso please!

Sorry about the stop once again - still dealing with my health problems. This of course has led my other affairs to build up, but with any luck I will get back to this soon.
All good Canvey, hope things get better soon. Real Life does come first...
