Oceania and Nippon clash to be hosted at Minerveca Avenue

As part of the celebrations of the new Lysdexic Stadium and its dedication to Minerveca, Oceania Football Federation officials have decided to honour Minerveca at Oceania’s next National Team fixture, against Nippon, this Friday night. The match, to be played at Minerveca Avenue at 20:00 HT time, is part of the Asian Cup, which both nations are participating in at present.

“We’re proud to announce that tickets have now gone on sale for the Asian Cup clash, this coming Friday.” Manager Cyntech told a press release this morning, “Oceanian officials wanted to continue our dedication to the great ambassador that is Minerveca and they thought that christening the stadium with an International friendly would be a fantastic idea and we wholeheartedly agree.”


Minerveca Avenue Unveiled

Lysdexic Untied’s brand new stadium was officially opened today. The new stadium, named Minerveca Avenue, has a maximum capacity of 60,000 people and club management hopes it will see the club through to division four and beyond.

“It’s an absolute honour to open our new stadium and to honour one of football’s greatest ambassadors.” Manager Cyntech told a press gathering and crowd at the opening, “Minerveca’s efforts were unyielding and inspiring and we could not think of a better person to enshrine in our new stadium.” The new stadium features a full 2000 seat section for the club’s official fan club, the ‘Untied Fatanics’ and fantastic lighting system for night games.

In addition to the new stadium was a secondary ground for Lysdexic’s Youth Academy, named Ann Field. This ground will host Untied’s Academy matches and features state of the art training facilities for the senior club also, including spa’s, saunas, a fully equipped gym and a 25m lap pool.

The new stadium’s first match will be hosting the round 8 Oceania league clash against Bracksies on Christmas Day.


Mid Season Team Review

This season’s cup run has been Lysdexic’s best run to date. Making it to round 6 was an awesome effort by the team and having four home games meant that some money could be spent on vital changes in preparation for promotion at the conclusion of the season.

In the league, everything is going to plan so far, including a dominant away win over my nearest rival, Connors Kangas FC. Lysdexic sit in first place, a game clear of Connors, while the rest battle it out for the minor places.  The second half of the season should be routine with the return fixture vs Connors in round 11 the only major match for Untied.

Player wise, the team is shaping up very well in preparation for division four. The main trainee group is progressing well after a season of passing training and now back onto scoring training, with the newer trainees doing well also.

Thanks to the abundance of home cup games this season, we have been able to organise a newer, larger stadium for the club. The added income from the home games, once completed and prior to promotion, will assist the changes needing to be made once the team promotes into division four.


Phoenix Extinguished

Speeling Stadium, SundayWellington Phoenix NZ hosted Lysdexic Untied for their 6th round Oceania League match on Sunday, hoping to contain the impressive run Lysdexic has had this season. Wellington have had a mixed season so far; wins against administration-led teams and holding Lokomotiv to a draw. Lysdexic, on the other hand, were looking to continue their impressive season to date, with another win.

Kangas Get Bounced

Arden Street Oval, Sunday – It was the top of the table clash. It was the first of two matches that would decide the Oceania fifth division league V.155 title and it was shaping up to be a pressure cooker match. Both teams had unbeaten runs up to this match, both teams were claiming superiority, it was on a knife-edge. The result? A convincing blowout in the end.

Connors Kangas FC brought the experience and the supposed upper hand into the match, with Lysdexic Untied undoubtedly the underdog but it came out reversed with Lysdexic eventually blowing away the Kangas, 7-2. In a match that would go down as one of the most remarkable games for referees and confrontations, one that featured no less than three penalties, all to one team. But it all began with a pivotal free kick awarded to Lysdexic in the fifth minute, well within range for set piece taker Kumar Guha and he made no mistake, curving the perfectly weighted ball into the top right corner of the goal.

Hatstats Is Just Around The Corner…

It’s been a long road, but we are almost there. Yes, can you believe it? When I announced that I would once again take up the Hatstats name, I received a huge amount of support from people who used to enjoy their daily statistical fix from the Alltid website. Now, with the demise of Alltid, more people than ever are clamoring for the statistical information on their teams and players. Well, I hope Hatstats can be the solution for those people.

One thing we want to state clearly that Hatstats is not an Alltid equivalent. Hatstats will provide statistics on teams, series, matches and players, but not to the massive degree that Alltid did at it’s height. Hatstats may increase it’s coverage in the future, but we intend to start with what Hatstats was well known for previously.  We also do intend for Hatstats to be a global service, but as I have mentioned before, we’re starting off small and growing up from there. We’ll be starting with Oceania (naturally), and then adding England and Singapore.

Since my previous post another programmer, my brother-in-law, has joined the Hatstats team. Together, we hope to return Hatstats to it’s former glory – the premier Hattrick statistics website that embedded itself into Hattrick folklore and terminology.

As for where we’re up to, all the functional requirements for the service and the website that were scheduled for release have been completed. We’ve had a series of ‘beta’ testers going through the website looking for bugs and we’ve got a few to squash before we get the green light for release. Once that’s done and we’ve prepped our production space, we should be right to go. At this stage, the Oceania release could be as soon as three weeks away, so we’re all getting very excited (Oceanians are definitely getting excited).
