Post subject:  Week 21 Chat

Charscot host Long Eaton Archers , who we usually beat and frankly fairly easily. That being said we lost this fixture for the first time 2002 last season and they are second. However, their recent form is far from good with 4 losses in 5 (all comps) compared to our 5 wins in 6 (again all comps). I am going for a thumping 4-1 win for us.

Dep El have got to get something from our homes games, starting with Prestatyn Town. Town have only one away loss all season so a win looks beyond us so a score draw would be great at this point.

Wascisco have an enormous game at Colwyn Bay as we sit above them in third place on goal difference. Again Bay's form is poor with 3 points (all draws) from their last five league matches. We have a better team, have taken 14 points from our last 6 league matches and should win this game. 3-1 to us.

Ziaste are having a very strange season and we go to Shaolin who are having an excellent season. Avoiding defeat would be great, realistically however a 1-0 loss for us.

Castle Rock look likely to relegate as they just can't get going and a trip to third placed Ynysfawr Athletic is not a game we are ever likely to get anything from 3-1 loss for us.



Charscot Wanderers ....v.... Long Eaton Archers
A.F.C Binfield ....v.... Rhyl F.C
The Academy ....v.... Balham Town
Longfield K.L.F ....v.... Real Madrid
Broomhall Lions ....v.... St Joseph's BC
Dep El Celtico ....v.... Prestatyn Town
Shaolin F.C ....v.... Ziaste Nequeno
Vanbrugh Royals ....v.... The Northerners

Staying top of the league has been hard to achieve this season with frequent changes as each team takes it in turn to struggle under the pressure of top spot. This has meant that despite having lost 5 games in 19 the reigning Champions The Academy still look like favourites to retain their title.
Likeliest challengers are once again St Joseph's BC as neither Prestatyn Town or Long Eaton Archers seem to be able to take a hold at the top.
This week could be a defining week for the teams at the top as three of them play relegation threatened sides and anything less than 3 points could prove costly.
Leaders St Joseph's BC face a trip to Broomhall Lions (13th). They should win but the Lions have already trounced the Archers 5-1 so any over confidence could be exploited as the Lions battle to stay up.
The Academy host Balham Town (11th) and this should be a home win as Town find themselves surprisingly struggling, although they should stay up.
Prestatyn Town make the trip to Dep El Celtico (14th) and this could be harder than expected too as Dep El's manager has done very well against Town's of late.
Second placed Long Eaton Archers go to Charscot (6th) who have lost this fixture once in the last 15 with 3 draws. However that loss was last season so the Archers will be hopeful of another win.
Shaolin (5th) have quietly kept in touch of the top clubs, just two points off of top spot and they will expect to beat Ziaste Nequeno (9th) who on their day can beat anyone.
Two battles at the bottom will have a big effect going forwards as bottom side Vanbrugh can likely only play spoilers now as they look doomed and they host The Northerners (15th) who have to win this game and if the Royals get anything then this could just drag The Northerners nearer relegation.
Longfield (10th) host Real Madrid (12th) with nothing but goal difference separating them and both clubs just 3 points outside the relegation places. Neither can afford to lose this game.


Whitebrook Rangers ....v.... Broomhall Tigers
Troon A.F.C ....v.... Callie Athletic
Rivendell ....v.... Southpool
Los Santos Cosmos ....v.... Dutch Uncles
Spondon Phoenix F.C. ....v.... Carnbroe Rovers
Beeston Athletic ....v.... Barton Blitz
Colwyn Bay ....v.... Wascisco Red Sox
The Academy Reserves ....v.... Seabourne City

A couple of big matches as four of the top six meet and depending on results a gap could be opening up this week.
Leaders Spondon host sixth-placed Carnbroe Rovers. Rovers have been in great form of late but Spondon still only have one loss and they are just systematically going through the weeks picking up points and eking out a lead at the top.
Wascisco (3rd) go to Colwyn Bay (4th) and on current form could open up a gap on the hosts who are struggling to win games.
Despite their inconsistencies Beeston Athletic (2nd) have finally got in a position of strength and they can build on that by beating bottom side Barton Blitz at home.
Broomhall Tigers (5th) go to the wildly inconsistent Whitebrook Rangers (9th) and should get the points to stay in the middle of the promotion battle.
At the bottom Troon (15th) have got back into trouble after they had looked like getting out of the bottom 3 for a while. They have to beat visiting Callie Athletic (8th) as they look to reclaim some of the 5 point gap to safety.
Seabourne City have probably been the most disappointing team when looked at over the entirety of the last few seasons. They have a squad you would expect to see in the top flight yet they barely survive in Division One. This season that survival is looking less likely as they are 14th and travel to 12th placed The Academy Reserves. A win puts them level on points, a 2 goal win puts City above them. However, more likely is a home win that doubles the gap.
Los Santos Cosmos lie a point above relegation in 13th and host Dutch Uncles (10th). Dutch still have to end their run of yo-yo'ing between Division 1 and 2 and with just a 4 point cushion the visitors know any points this week could be enormous in this local derby.


Requiem Shark ....v.... Sleaford Town
Long Eaton Terriers ....v.... MTK Budapest
Space Cadets ....v.... Zakreze F.C
Rapid Gentrification ....v.... Avlon Villa
Teesside Reds ....v.... Cookie United
Kilmarnock ....v.... Carnbroe United
Ynysfawr Athletic ....v.... Castle Rock Furies
Academy Allstars ....v.... Broomhall U23s

Requiem Shark finally lost on week 20, losing in both league and cup, so they will want a quick bounce back as they host Sleaford Town (11th). Town have pulled off some good results of late, is a draw possible ?
Zakreze are still in a strong second position and they travel to usual promotion-chasers Space Cadets (7th) who have performed poorly and seem no threat to the top sides.
Ynysfawr (3rd) go to hapless Castle Rock (15th) who are easily one of the two worst performing sides of the 6 under threat of relegation.
The other side looking like relegation certainties is bottom side Kilmarnock who host Carnbroe United (4th) in what looks a easy away win.
Cookie United (13th) have a hard match at Teesside Reds (6th).
This all means the big match at the bottom , Long Eaton Terriers (12th) host MTK Budapest (14th) is an enormous opportunity to get away from the bottom 3. On current form this will be another win for MTK Budapest, who have been frankly superb of late and a different side from the awful team they were for basically half a season. MTK have gone from relegation certainties to looking likely to survive with plenty to spare and are still in the cup too. Brilliant fight back.


Mancs F.C. ....v.... Bala Town F.C.
Barton Hills United ....v.... Birstall United
Greenwich Mariners ....v.... Bembridge F.C
Gleadless United ....v.... Caglibari Calcio
Real Blades ....v.... Abergarwed Athletic
British Sea Power ....v.... Blackheath Tigers
Old Town Athletic ....v.... Bank Vale United
Tempest Pervade ....v.... New Town A.F.C

The top two meet with leaders Abergarwed hosting Real Blades in what should be an excellent game. These two look the class of the division this season and regardless of the result expect both to be in Division 2 next season.
Caglibari Calcio are still hanging in third place and will be tested by a trip to Gleadless United (5th). These two and Mancs are the three clubs likely to fight for the final promotion spot.
Mancs (4th) should have little to beat in former favourites now also-rans Bala Town (6th and not finished dropping).
Barton and Birstall are 7th and 8th respectively and level on points. They are 6 points adrift of 3rd and simply have to put in a winning run as soon as possible if they want any chance of promotion.


Division 3 - Real Blades ....v.... Abergarwed Athletic

This meeting of the top two won't determine promotion, both should go up as the best performing sides by quite a way this season. The hosts trail by 2 points and after a 0-0 draw earlier this season these evenly matched teams may struggle to win. Prediction - (both will go up!) ... and 1-1

Division 1 - Colwyn Bay ....v.... Wascisco Red Sox

Colwyn Bay have spent almost the entire season in the top 3 following promotion and after a winless start to the second half of the season they are in danger of dropping away. They host Wascisco Red Sox who have 4 wins and 2 draws form their last 6 games and look to be going in the opposite direction to Colwyn. Wascisco have outscored everyone in the division by a minimum of 10 goals and that attacking form is likely to prove decisive. Prediction - Wascisco win 3-1

This might be Vanbrugh's best chance of another win this season, a home game against team in 15th. We can always hope.

Rivendell have a home game against Southpool. Another draw wouldn't surprise me.

Beeston are at home to bottom team Barton Blitz. These are the games a promotion chasing side should be winning.

KLF simply have to win this week, no excuses!! - A draw it will be then :|

MTK Budapest go to Long Eaton Terriers this week knowing that if we go there and win we can move out of the bottom three at last.

After a woeful week with five defeats ( :cry: :oops: ) all teams need to drag themselves out of the gutter starting with Southpool
There's no reason they can't get the win this week, but a draw wouldn't be the worst result :|

Whitebrook are all over the place at the moment, just can't seem to string two decent results together.

Home to Broomhall Tigers this week, feeling optimistic about the week ahead so a good start will get the feel good factor moving.

Likely to make a change or two to spark some life into things.

Had a feeling Charscot would be too strong for Long Eaton and we could go back to our usual home wins after a blip last season and so it proved as we win 3-1. 6 wins from 7 (loss to Ziaste in the middle) and if not for losing to Ziaste twice the table would be great reading right now. Instead just frustrating.

Dep El lose a close one to Prestatyn and we are looking likely to relegate.

Replacing us could easily be Wascisco who get an excellent win at Colwyn Bay 1-0 to move 3 points clear of our opponents in the promotion race.

Ziaste lose 1-0 and still have half an eye on the relegation battle.

Castle put up an excellent fight at likely promotion side Ynysfawr losing 3-2 but the result gives us hope for the weeks ahead.

A 0-0 draw this week but a good draw in the cup.

Excellent win for Whitebrook this week, they changes and formation change worked well.

Situation normal for Vanbrugh. The end of the season can't come fast enough.

Rivendell clearly had their shooting boots on this week. A surprisingly easy win against a good Southpool team.

Beeston scraped a 1-0 win over bottom side Barton, who probably deserved a point, but I'll take winning ugly.
