Matchday Nine - The Halfway Point
Welcome to this special edition of the CFPL blog wherein, as the title suggests, we take stock of the season so far at its halfway point and read a whole load of useless statistics. Traditionally, at this point of a football season, each team has settled down and know where they stand in the league, while the viewer has a general idea of where each team will finish.
It is my proud proclamation that this certainly doesn't apply to the Castle Fairgrounds Premier
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
And a serious problem calls for a serious solution.
Welcome, my friends, to judgement day, where tonight, we make a stand. Tonight, we walk with the ghosts of nil-nil draws past and say no more. Tonight, we traverse the lands where fame and immortality can only be conquered with goalkeeping midgets.

As you will no doubt be unaware, for the past few months, the Mushroom Kingdom has played host to two mildly successful virtual soccer tournaments. These tournaments take the form of watching the involved teams play out a soccer match in a video game, while an uneducated man with a funny accent shouts over them.
