Vaduz in 3rd, which is pretty good, but Auckland dominate Oceania! It'll be a few years before anyone can compete with us :D Pretty decent youngster in Alexandre Lacazette as well!

Fantastic start Dave, keep it up :thup:

Also, great to see that there is already some promising youngsters from smaller nations, like Cook Islands, New Caledonia and Cuba :D

UEFA EUROPEAN FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP

POLAND/UKRAINE 2012

thumbnail.aspx?q=4998797051037120&id=bac24bc1bc922708a295be48ff972971

Group Stage (Bold indicates qualification, number in brackets indicates number of finals appearances)

Group A - Bosnia & Herzegovina (1), France (8), Italy (8), Ukraine (1).

Group B - England (8), Poland (2), Slovakia (1), Sweden (5).

Group C - Croatia (4), Holland (9), Portugal (6), Scotland (3).

Group D - Germany (11), Ireland (2), Spain (9), Switzerland (4).

NOTES: Three debutantes here, and all three caused a bit of a stir. Ukraine, co-hosts, upset Italy in their first match but were unable to capitalise on this and lost both their following games. Neither of the other two, Slovakia or Bosnia & Herz, made it through the group stage, but both were beyond unlucky. Each of them finished level on points with the second places in their groups, Italy and Poland respectively, as well as level on goals difference and goals scored. It was the results between teams rules which put paid to their ambitions. The only real surprise of the group stage was Holland's failure, as they finished without a single point or even goal to their name. (Sound at all familiar?)

Quarter Final

Poland 1-4 France

England 2-1 Italy

Croatia 3-0 Spain

Portugal e2-1 Germany

Semi Final

France 1-2 Portugal

England 1-0 Croatia

Final

Portugal 1-0 England

Croatia did amazingly well to thrash Spain, but saw their challenge end against a resilient England side. It was the European nemesis and bogey team Portugal however who finally put the English down in a tightly contested final, for their first ever major international honours.

OCEANIA NATIONS CUP

FIJI 2012

vinyl-decal-sticker-13681.jpg

Group Stage (Bold indicates qualification, number in brackets points earned.)

Group A - New Zealand (9), Fiji (6), New Caledonia (3), Vanuatu (0).

Group B - Tahiti (7), Papua New Guinea (4), Samoa (3), Solomon Islands (1).

No real surprises here. New Caledonia and Solomon Islands may have fancied their chances of getting through to the semi finals but until big boys New Zealand get knocked out at this stage, I don't really think we can call any group stage occurrences a shock.

Semi Final

New Zealand 0-1 Papua New Guinea

Fiji 3-1 Tahiti

Final

Papua New Guinea 4-0 Fiji

Well, well, well. A sure shock on our hands here, as unfancied Papua New Guinea, the largest nation in the competition in both size and population, defeated perennial champions New Zealand. They then went on to register another shock, crushing hosts Fiji in the final. (Perhaps New Zealand's loss shouldn't be such a huge surprise, as they lost convincingly to New Caledonia, who in turn lost to Tahiti in the final of the real thing, just two weeks ago).

Incidentally, Solomon Islands won the 2011 Pacific Games, beating Samoa on penalties in the final.

OLYMPIC GAMES

GREAT BRITAIN 2012

OlympicRings.jpg

Group Stage (Bold indicates qualification, number in brackets indicates points earned.)

Group A - Uruguay (7), Spain (5), Ivory Coast (4), Australia (0).

Group B - Costa Rica (5), Japan (4), Nigeria (4), Belarus (3).

Group C - Brazil (9), Switzerland (4), Iran (3), Solomon Islands (1).

Group D - Great Britain (7), Mexico (5), Morocco (4), South Korea (0).

NOTES: Great Britain (well, England plus Aaron Ramsey) were formed especially for this tournament, and Papiss Cissé FC reject Alan Pardew was appointed manager of the ceremonial side. They did well, getting through their group will relative ease; only a draw against Mexico stopping them from taking maximum points. Ivory Coast and Australia struggled in a tough group, and Solomon Islands were far from outclassed in theirs.

Quarter Final

Japan 0-2 Uruguay

Spain 6-0 Costa Rica

Brazil 3-1 Mexico

Switzerland 3-3p Great Britain

Semi Final

Uruguay 3-4 Spain

Brazil 1-2e Great Britain

Third Place Playoff

Uruguay 3-2 Brazil

Final

Spain 1-3 Great Britain

There were some fabulous matches on show, demonstrating that the future of football is bright. After a couple of close matches Eng- *cough* Great Britain defeated Spain in a thrilling final. Home hero Wayne Rooney, one of three overage players along with Leighton Baines and James Milner (yeah I know?!), opened the scoring, and Britain's brightest boys did the rest. A shame the nation of Great Britain will never play again.

Yes, there were two - Kreilach and Lendric, both players bought by Dubrovnik from the Croatian League.

Yeah that's right; any player who at any point has a CA of 190+ will become a part of that list. There's only four in the game at the moment with the potential to be there.

Hmm, some bad news. It seems the Virgin Champions' Cup isn't running, and I'm not quite sure. I definitely set it to begin in 2012 with a yearly interval, but it's telling me that it's not been scheduled yet, despite it being a month after the date it should be, so I must have gone wrong somewhere. It's not the most important tournament, and with the leagues and cups all working, as well as the Google World Club Cup, I've decided that I'm just going to not bother with it in this sign-up - it's only a six team tournament anyway really just there for extra bragging rights. Sorry about that.

This is amazing. Absolutely top work.

Not too disheartened by seeing Der Bandits relegated in our first season. Ours was always the long game, focusing on youth an facilities with a view to a successful future. Very encouraging that Martin Podrygala is with us, a 16 year old with 180 PA and a big big future. Let's hope he stays!

Terrific work Dave.

Nando's African Super Cup

2012AfricaSuperCup.png

It was an excellent season for the neutrals; a very tight race ultimately being won by the Ivorians, Etoiles Mondiales. The last season's winners of the top two divisions, Espérance and Fennec were both right up there, but missed out, with just six points separating the top six sides. Away from top flight matters, it was another dismal season for Morocco's Chamakh Attack, who will be wondering just what it is they're doing wrong. No such worries for AFC Seychelles Athletics, and the Libyan Mediterranean Knights, who both sealed back-to-back promotions. However, team of the season must be Lions of Judah SC, of Ethiopia, who not only won Division Two and promotion, but also inflicted some huge giant killings on the way to victory in the cup. An outstanding double.

Arabian Knights looked imperious this season, the Saudis comfortably winning the league, as well as the super cup. However, they got an almighty shock from Indian outfit Gandhi United, who celebrated back to back promotions with a cup win. They'll be in the Premier League next season, and surely major challengers to the Knights. Elsewhere, FC Pueblo suffered back to back relegations.

A second league title in as many attempts for Les Aigles, and although Beja Bulls of Potugal were again close, it was the two promoted sides who were the French's nearest challengers, making major inroads straight away in the division. Der Bandits, relegated last season from the top flight, suffered the heartbreak of relegation again. Despite having some real quality coming through the ranks, the Germans were just quite not good enough once more.

Just discovered yet ANOTHER error I've made with the database - I think I must have given priority to the second place in the league (in North America) priority over cup winners to appear in the super cup, as Arima Otters took Three Little Birds United's place. That means my embarrassingly large list of errors, none of which I managed to spot during testing includes:

- Champions' Cup doesn't work at all.

- Manngeld Trophy takes place on the first or second day of each season, despite saying it's to be played in February each time

- North American super cup issue

- Names for at least three clubs are slightly wrong/horribly wrong

I'm not sure whether I should plow on despite these problems or fix them all, test again, and restart. There are of course advantages to both - it's a choice between getting everything sorted and (hopefully) having things work better and run more smoothly. However, there has been a fair amount done so far, and I'm sure there'll be one or two complaints, especially due to the risk that teams who've been performing well could end up with far less to cheer.

So, I think I'll leave it up to the sign-up as a whole to decide. Give me your verdict and the sign up will either fix and restart, or continue as you were.

My apologies. Again. :p

well to be honest the errors regarding Champions Cup and the North America Cup will have a significant effect on clubs due to points earned via winning those competitions will be lost, so i would put my vote towards fixing things and restarting.

I might do, but it seems kind of pointless for there to be a whole thread for it at the moment. So far, most people seem to be leaning towards fixing/restarting. There's not been any explicit support for carrying on yet.

My vote is purely selfish on the grounds that Ochaneffing Thistle have just been promoted to the Shell European Premier and knocked out two Premier teams on the way to the Nestle Cup final, so I vote to carry on.

Quite understand if the consensus is to rob me of my hard-won achievements though.
