The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (Match Day 3)

Post by Shapirius » Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:53 am

Halfway through the seasons, and things are shaping up to quite an interesting next half.

The Good

Tripolis United's offense was ridiculous. They scored 5 goals to beat the current leaders, Hannover Dragons. If they can just patch up on defense a bit, they'll be hard to beat.

In addition, Valtyrium City FC got their first win of the season over the Brown Coats, beating them 3-0. If they can keep this up, they might actually have a chance for the title.

The Bad

While Tripolis United's offense was firing on all for cylinders, Hannover Dragons' defense was sputtering and stalling. They allowed 4 goals against Hannover Dragons, resulting in them Tripolis United remaining in 2nd place on the league table due to goal difference. Unless this defense turns itself around, the offense is going to carry the team to the top of the table by itself.

The Brown Coats, on the other hand, have a different story. They just can't get consistency on their offense. In their last three games, they scored 1 goal, then 4 goals, and then 0. That's not going to cut if they want a shot at a high place finish.

The Ugly

Hannover Dragons haven't been in the ugly column yet this season, so it was bound to happen soon than later. However, none expected it to be this ugly. Manager Lucius Aemilius urged his players not be reckless before the game, saying, "Fortune may favor the bold, but recklessness is not the same thing as boldness." However, maybe he should have remained his team that you aren't supposed to let the other team score 5 goals on you. In. A. Single. Game.


As a result of VCFC beating BCS 3-0 and TPU beating HDG 5-4, Hannover Dragons are at the top of the table by goal difference, as they and Tripolis United have 6 points each, VCFC has 3, and BCS is at the bottom with 3.

Dear Madam,

I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.

I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

A. Lincoln
