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 League.

Warning: Unmarked spoilers will be used from this point onwards - do not read the rest of this if you want to watch any of the matches without knowing the scores.

I'm as surprised that this is actually formatted correctly as you are.

So what does it all mean? It's time for a wikipedia style unnecessary trivia section!

It means that the MK Dons, O'Samurai Utd and Real Vanguard are in a three way tie for the lead, with MK ahead because of their superior goal difference.

The best home record belongs to Greenland United, with two wins and two draws in their four matches. Best away record goes to O'Samurai, whose away form is exactly the same.

For what it's worth, the measures in place to simulate home advantage seem to be working, with 10 wins going to the home teams, compared to 6 for away teams.

Athens Athletic, Greenland United and the MK Dons share the title of highest goalscorers with 7 goals each, while O'Samurai United have conceded the least, letting only 3 slip past.

Despite their lowly 8th place, Tigris FC have not conceded a single goal at home; a record similar to O'Samurai's on their travels.

Best Eleven

Based on individual performances this season up until this point, my best eleven would read as follows:

GK: Huttervan (ODN) - Despite his team's relatively poor defensive record, Huttervan has often single handedly won vital points for ODN.

DL: Jguy (GR) - Dangerous crosser of the ball, ever-present in defence.

DR: Volatile (FOK) - Provides much needed width for his team and still manages to be a vital cog in FOK's 3 man defence

DC: potato (MK) - Completely solid. Physically and cerebrally awesome.

DC: Griswald (MK) - Not as 'standout' as potato but together they form the defensive partnership for the one unbeaten team. No arguments there.

ML: Wurzel (GR) - Beating out Chaoshawk on account of Wurzel consistency and quality of the final ball.

MR: Cataduanes (ODN) - Close between Cata and Stefan. Cata edges it through his determination and tenacity.

MC: Arsenal (ODN)- Captain fantastic; two last minute equalisers for ODN so far and their top goalscorer to boot.

MC: Revanche (Van) - A lot like Arsenal, except with less drama.

ST: HavoK (Ath) - Not technically impressive but what a sense of timing. Five goals, most of them scrappy, most of the vital.

ST: Rafael_Nadal (Van) - Holds his own in what is essentially a 4-5-1 at times and keeps on scoring.

There is, indeed, a notable lack of O'Samurai players in my chosen lineup. This is down to how they play well as a team, but typically don't have any real stand-out individuals aside from HisK, who is beaten out by HavoK and Rafa.

Conclusion

So hey, I hope this has been an enjoyable read. The idea in my mind was to do something special at the halfway point, though I don't think I've really managed it. Join us for the next matchday this Saturday regardless of this let down! :P

After the debacle on Saturday with me and my stupid mixed up 4-4-1-1 and 4-3-2-1 hybrid formation, I am glad we could pull out a win and move into a tie at the top of the table.

I don't mind not having a stand out player if it means we are playing well as a team.
