Time for Cup Glory!

G’Day Everyone!

I thought with the next version of the SEN FED Cup about to kick off in 2 weeks time, it was time to provide us all with all the full history of Winners / Runners ups / and Semi-Finalists.. from Cups gone by!

So maybe you yourself have played well? Won a title or 3!? or maybe you are brand new to the Cup and keen to get amongst it all and maybe get your teams name on our honor-board!

As you will see below, all of the Final’s match ID’s have been provided for you as links so fingers crossed it works well and takes you straight to HT and to the game!

Just amazing at how the ratings performances have increased dramatically over the years! and the amount of teams competing has grown, even great to see many veterans of the Cup! There really are a few guys who simply can’t get enough of the SEN FED Cup!

A quick reminder that if you are from the SEN 1116 Fans Federation or simply a Victorian based team in HT then you are welcome to compete in this famous old Cup! Always great prizes up for grabs and much banter is had weekly in the Fed’s forums… :)

FC Hihi become Victorian Pride!

SEN 1116 Fans FED Cup History! :)
Past + Present OWAAT / frankafanhock / Pride Cup Finalists & of course the Champs! :)

*A big congratulations goes to our recent FED Cup Champions who were crowned just 2 weeks ago!
They are hihi005 who manages a team called FC Hihi! Located down in the depths of Div V of Oceania, a nuggety little team who have been around for yonks, a FED Forum regular aswell, so this Champion is 1 who we are all very proud of!
They came and they tried… and now they have conqured! So well done!
But they wont be resting or celebrating too hard after their Victory as they have just re-signed up for the next version of this famous ol’ Cup! Now it’s all about defending that title as best they can!
Very shortly after they completed their Cup Final Match, they have been awarded their 1st place prize which includes a 3 months supporter pack kindly donated by Dough_Boy (manager of Seaford FC), FC Hihi have also been awarded their very 1st hattriX-cupmanager trophy symbol on the Cups host site, their Champion status can also be seen on that sites main page as Latest Challenge Cup Winners!

WE also can’t forget the other Finalist.. which includes manager sperkins (now called stuckinsecond) who manages the team called Portsea Aggies… they would have been favourites to win the final as at the time of the match they were the higher ranking team being located up in Div III in Oceania, compared to Div V where FC Hihi hale from.. Unfortunately the Aggies couldn’t get the chockies, and have since sold up, dropped down and are in some sort of restructure for long term sustainability in Hattrick! They too were awarded a small prize which consisted of just the 1 month supporter pack extension which I was happy to and keen to provide! So we wish them and their endeavours the best of luck, and again they will be back in action for the next edition of this cup as they are signed up and keen as mustard aswell…

So this is the time to get into the Fed’s Forums, post where you can and feel comfy doing so, and sign-up for Edition 5 of the Pride Cup which as we know, over the duration the SEN FED Cup has been known under many different names… for a total of 15 completed All Time!

So Get on Board!

Pride Cup Group Stage Summary

Yes Hello again and Welcome to another blog-post from yours truly in WozzaNoski!

Today I have for all of you glorious readers out there from the World Wide Web, a Summary of the last 3 weeks worth of events, matches and then some upcoming knockout stage fixtures from the SEN FED PRIDE CUP on behalf of the SEN 1116 Fans Federation.

It all started back on the 11-04-2012 at the Hattrick Time of 04.00 (Week 8 / Season 36). This date involved Round 1 of the Group Stage of our Cup, where 48 teams from Oceania (Mostly from the HT region of Victoria) went into battle against each other for Fed/Region Wide Glory! All games were automatically aranged through the hattriX-cupmanager website with the status being a Friendly with (Cup Rules). So 12 groups of 4 teams, where losses and draws wern’t going to be good enough to progress to the knockout stages, wins were all that mattered, every team needed at least 1 win from their initial 3 group games to be sure of progressing to the Final 32.. yes that’s right people… 32 teams actually progress from the starting 48, so theoretically the various managers involved had a good chance if they played their cards right from game 1!

So Round 1… let’s get this post flowing shall we?!

Biggest games from this round were;

leenyslosers : Yifto United 3 : 0,
– a crunch game straight up for both managers here, with leeny63 feeling he and his team have a great chance at winning this trophy at seasons end… coming up against a 2 time finalist and previous Champion in manager slipppy and on this occasion leeny63 took home the chockies with a comfortable 3-0 win, which probably says more about Yifto United’s chances this time around than it does for leenyslosers, with in previous seasons Yifto has had a cruisy type run to the later stages, and always seemed to rate well in these games… but not this time… The BIG BOYS are in town!

Liverpool_FC_03 : Sunshine Blues 0 : 3,
– Former Cup Champ team in Liverpool_FC_03 here came up against the Blues in what many people would class as a worthy Final, but hang on.. this is just Round 1, these two poor buggers were pushing shit up hill from the get go with an extremely tough group, so points here would be a struggle, a betting man like I am would have put his buckeroonies on the former Champ in Liverpool, but on this occasion it wasn’t to be and the Blues from Sunshine took a valuable win.

EVIL INCORPORATED : Quinn Kings 5 : 0,
– 1 Former Radio Show Host Vs a Current Radio Show Host, albeit from totally different areas of professionalism clashed here and not for the first time in their history and certainly wont be the last I’m sure.. Quinns who are managed by frankfanhock are in somewhat of a rebuilding phase after many years playing the game we all love in hattrick and EVIL INC. on the rise after doing my own rebuild just over 3 seasons ago now, EVIL were firm favourites here and showed their fancy moves all day with an easy 5-0 win.

Drumleagues United : Kewell Magic F.C 2 : 2 PS,
– 2 of the 3 expected group progressors were to be seen in this match which turned out to be an epic first hit out, a 2-2 draw after the first 90 minutes, which no winner could be found after the extra time period either, so penalties decided this 1, these 2 teams can seriously punch out the ratings where they want to so beware guys, only your A team will get past these 2.

Smitlick : FC Hihi 2 : 8,
– When I first saw the managers and teams in this group I was amazed at the evenness of their squads, but after seeing the end result in this match I was left scratching my head and wondering what has happened to smittyroos and his Smitlick team!? They got pummelled in every way, the positive from this game went to manager hihi01 who always enjoys the friendly banter pre and post games and was happy as larry with the extra goal difference for such an even group.

City Utd : Whites Wongs 2 : 1,
– The last game covered from Rd 1 involved another big rating team from last seasons cup in City Utd, and they were up against The Wongs who are no pushovers.. manager awrace has his team bopping along very quietly down in the lower levels of the Oceanian league system, and I’m sure this cup will be treated with respect, so this game went down to the wire with The Wongs only narrowly missing out on some points away from home.

And so then Round 2 of the Group Stage kicked off on Wednesday 18-04-2012 04.00 HT (9/36), trenches were dug after last weeks efforts by all, so now it was time for all out WAR!

Those that lost last week, needed wins, those that drew last week, couldn’t afford to lose this week, and those that won last week wanted to keep the form going!

aussie hammer : CollingwoodFC 3 : 1,
– Manager intone who is the current Chief Officer of the SEN FED and in charge of aussie hammer, was in action here and has always done his best to field strong teams in this Cup as the Cup is the Pride of the Fed, and this was no exception, pumping out some nice hatstats ratings on his way to a 3-1 home win against another 1 of the stronger teams fronm last season, but don’t forget that aussie hammer themselves are a former cup semi-finalist! So watch your step lads!

The Mighty Doggies : Sunshine Blues 1 : 3,
– arghhh another match here that truly shows the quality of this Fed Cup, The Mighty Doggies have done well in the past with a Cup Trophy win to their name many months ago now, but it’s certainly not forgotten, I would have thought a strong showing would be on the cards here but apparently a small rebuild has them a tad weaker in most areas of the pitch these days so again the Blues chalk up more points.

Quinn Kings : localh bandits 0 : 9,
– I’m sure frankafanhock wont mind me throwing this game in amongst it 😉 here is just a little more ammo from the group I was located in.. This match ended as the biggest drubbing of the group stage and shows that franka has plenty of work still to do with his team, but it also shows that the localh bandits will take no prisoners moving forward in this cup edition!

Seaford FC : Drumleagues United 2 : 2 PS,
– Does history ever repeat itself? well these 2 managers and teams certainly tried, with battle-stations from the past re-positioned.. with these 2 having competed against each other in a previous league series season, it was interesting to see who would come out on top.. but looking at the result, no-one really wanted to put their hand up so 2-2, and penalties it was.. surely room for improvement in these 2 camps?!

The Beg Tets : Casula United 0 : 5,
– 2 of my more favourite teams featured here in what manager kizza from Casula United claimed as a comfy win and guranteed them a spot in the next round, surely getting his fair share of a squeeze of The Big Tits.. (I mean, The Beg Tets!).. 😉 Kizza I am sure wants to burst a few bubbles in this cup, being from accross the border.

Yarra Park Bears : Whites Wongs 0 : 2,
– The Yarra Park Bears have a long history involved with our fed, albeit not lately, and when he got wind of this cup reforming and his envite was sent out he was in like flynn! Unfortunately for them though this game went down as another narrow loss, so all will need to be done in the final game if they have anychance of playing more matches against us lads…

And then just in the last few hours we have now completed Round 3 and therefore the SEN FED Cup Group Stage is now complete, with all stats updated and the knockout stage fixtures drawn together, it’s time to see what happened from today’s games.

Sunshine Blues : Failure McMuffins 1 : 1 OT,
– Again the Blues feature with 1 of the games of the week with these 2 teams being ranked 1st and second in their group after this above result, both managers are exctatic about it I’m sure, and the match itself resembled why that is fact.. a 1-1 draw with a winner found in Extra Time, big ratings for a simple friendly match, with no stone left unturned by both!

localh bandits : EVIL INCORPORATED 1 : 1 OT,
– A little bit of smack talk was dished out here pre-game by both managers in their speech bubbles, of which I WozzaNoski even gave my opposition a major heads-up about the tactics that would be used for the match and this was heard near the end of The OH Show Episode 40, funny fact is that localh manager heard it and still couldn’t get his team the win, with EVIL INC being lucky enough to score a winner in ET! That must dent the pride down at the bandits a little, still though.. the bandits are the real deal in this Cup!

Kewell Magic F.C : Seaford FC 4 : 2,
– The Magic dealt the Sharks a real bite of their own early in this match, I was watching it Live and thought at half time it was all over, then in true Dough_Boy style he and his team came out fighting, but alas it wasn’t enough, both of these teams are power-houses so expect to see both in the next round after they both accumulated enough points to do so.

Casula United : The Borough 1 : 3,
– Deflated is the word, and that’s how manager Kizza is feeling right now after seeing his team get nailed to the wooden post by The Borough, all was looking rosey for Casula after 2 games, but the 3rd was 1 to forget, let’s hope they pick themselves up and do NSW proud in a majority Victorian field… NOT!!!! haha 😉

Portsea Aggies : Lone Prong Athletic 6 : 1,
– Sperkins is a manager who has only been in the SEN FED for a few months but already he seems to be enjoying his banter with us all, especially involving his team the Portsea Aggies, in this cup, thus seeing his various posts in the Feds Cup Forum Thread, I reckon he quietly fancies his chances being 1 of the top seeded teams, and has qualified easily from his group with a resounding 6-1 win at home in front his loyal fans!

Whites Wongs : VS Vlissingen 5 : 1,
– The Wongs needed more points from this game with VS Vlissingen already through and so The Wongs came out all guns blazing in this match in order to get themselves through to the business end of the Cup. The 5-1 result however was slightly lopsided which has allowed The Wongs to be ranked as the top team from a tough group!

And so last but not least… here is how the next stage will look.. Yep it’s the Round of 32!

You lose from now on, and it’s curtains for you as a manager and your team!
Always remember to set your penalty takers as now it’s doubly important!

Blueblueboy888 : leenyslosers
Sunshine Blues : Houli’sHeroes
Bulleen Bashers : Marcnus FC
Seaford FC : Mt Evelyn Old Boys
The Borough : VS Vlissingen
Wallaroo Dogs : Portsea Aggies
Yifto United : Drumleagues United
EVIL INCORPORATED : Failure McMuffins
Southern Super Whites : Untouchables FC
Kingsbury Comets FC : papa cyclings crew
Whites Wongs : Casula United
FC Hihi : Lone Prong Athletic
Kewell Magic F.C : City Utd
I feel like chicken tonight : localh bandits
The Bomber’s Arsenal : CollingwoodFC
The Mighty Doggies : aussie hammer

Goodluck to all involved still, and may the Match Engine be with us all!
Thanks for reading, from Woz.

SEN FED Cup 15th Edition!

From Week 8 of each Oceanian Hattrick Season many Managers based in our SEN FED and of course those located in the Hattrick Oceanian Community Region of Victoria all lick their lips proudly with anticipation, of yet another Edition of the SEN FED Cup!

It has grown from the very early days of being run by manager VimVuego solely from the oneweekatatime (OWAAT) website, through to manager mheron who began utilitising the hattriX-cupmanager website for many seasons, and now more recently (the last 3-4 seasons) I WozzaNoski have brought the Cup back to its glory days but with a much bigger team base!

From the beginnings of just 16 seasonal competitors, to 32 envitees, to what it was this time last season… a whopping 80 teams, the Cups importance to these managers continues to grow, also in popularity aswell.. as the SEN FED has grown so has the Cup! The lure of great prizes including a 3 Month HT Supporter Package donated with thanks to fellow SEN FED member Dough_Boy, and a 1 Month HT Supporter Pack donated by yours truly… these always provide that extra little bit of oompff to the competing managers to think twice about playing their ‘b’ teams or trainees for these fixtures!

This all started back in Global Season 32 for the First Edition, and now here we are about to commence Edition 15 in Global Season 48. It would surely be the biggest and longest running FED Cup in all of Oceanian History (especially outside the Oceanian National Midweek Cup) of which its importance, and prestige ranks very closely behind that of our National Cup! Let’s be honest here… bragging rights are on the line!

Previous Champions of this Cup include:-
Collingwood Warriors, fowlers shootingstar, Spuraholics x3, Jiagars, Liverpool_FC_03, The Mighty Doggies, Yifto United + most recently the SEN FED Cup was won by AC Woka! SlyTel and his Spuraholics have been Crowned Champions 3 times which in recorded history are the only club to do so, and all that including having to worry about promotion up the Oceanian Divisions, an amazing feat and I’m sure he wishes he could play in this coming Edition, but congrats again to SlyTel for getting his team into another late round performance of the Oceanian National Cup! We tip our hats too you Tel! :) and thanks to you on behalf of all particpating in our 15th Edition for allowing us a chance to try and catch you! 😉 haha

And for our last bit of SEN FED Cup reminiscing, we would like to give a massive thanks to frankafanhock again who manages a team called the Quinn Kings, he and his OWAAT co-host coachnoodles were the catalyst for driving hattrick in Melbourne Victoria all those years ago on their show, and from that stemmed the SEN 1116 Fans Federation and the SEN FED Cup! During the years the Cup has changed name only twice… it began as the ‘OWAAT Cup’ in honour of the website for the show, then switched to be called the ‘frankafanhock Cup’ in honour of our Feds Creator, and has been called for the last 4 seasons now the ‘SEN 1116 Fans Fed Pride Cup’ to show that yes.. we are all proud of our great cup, and we say ‘it aint going anywhere anytime soon!’ haha

So… on with news about this weeks games!

Wednesday 4/4/12 @ 6.15pm was when the Registration Process closed for Edition 15 of the SEN FED Cup. And with that I give thanks to the hattriX-Cupmanager website for allowing our Great Fed to use its features to run our Cup each season!
This season we (Dough_Boy and I) only re-envited last seasons entrants into this new version and with that came a handy 48 teams to compete with last season fetching the 80 mentioned earlier after I sent out HT-Mails to many past entrants from eons ago, an SEN FED-WIDE Newsletter addvertising it etc aswell as all the Victorian regional teams from the top 5 Oceanian Divisions.. were all envited last time.. but the 80 could often be a hassle to organise and keep upto date, but yes here we go again and goodluck to those involved, it should be a cracker with teams representing Divisions III down to VI, involving 12 groups of 4 teams plus knockout stage, the first round is played from 11.04.2012 (in 1 days). Once the Cup has completed and a Champion Crowned the manager will be awarded with a Challenge Cup Trophy Symbol as has been the case since day dot for our cup! The initial group stage is followed by a 32 team knockout Playoff, so giving many teams the chance to progress out of their groups and into some normal straight knockout scenarios.. All of the First round’s matches were seeded by current league positions and the team that was situated at the lower league level and position at sign-up gets home ground advantage at all stages of the cup.

Some interesting Groups include…

Group A, Involving leenyslosers who make a return to this Cup after a season or 2’s hiatus, and they have been drawn together with a past Cup Champion in Yifto United, both should progress through here though.. The 2 other teams are Glenroy Lions + Hornets XI.

Group B, Pits former Cup Semi-Finalist and current SEN 1116 Fans Fed Chief Officer ‘intone’ and his ‘aussie hammer’ team up against CollingwoodFC, and again both should progress with Hedricko a smokey to cause an upset or 2 along the way.. The last club is ‘papa cyclings crew’.

Group C, Is arguably turning out to be a ‘group of death’ as it involves top seed and another former Cup Champion in Liverpool_FC_03, plus recent drop from III to IV in Sunshine Blues, also last season Failure McMuffins posted some massive ratings, and let’s not forget The Mighty Doggies who also are former Cup Champions… A massive group and 1 to add to many a HT-Live game day viewer!

Group D, Is looking to be the weakest of the groups with already 2 walkover scores done due to 2 managers accidentily scheduling wrong matches, but thankfully only 2 games out of 24 have been affected this 1st week, so let’s hope that rectifies itself in readiness for next week! Forum favourite branca_22 and his ‘I feel like chicken tonight’ team will be everyones cheer on team here! The Bomber’s Arsenal, Untouchables FC + UnknownUnited are the various teams involved in battle here.

Group E, Involves 2 clubs that have literally only just been knocked out of the Oceanian National Midweek Cup, being Marcnus FC and Southern Super Whites and they both return for their second crack at our Cup! So welcome lads :) The other 2 teams are Listen Up Slapnuts + Bulleen Bashers.

Group F, Is the ‘fun-filled’ group, and yep it involves myself WozzaNoski and my EVIL INC., and I get to play funny buggers with the SEN FED Founder and spiritual FED God in frankafanhock and his Quinn Kings, oh and I better not forget about the localh bandits, whom I support and they return the favour with support of my own team and they and I have met on many occasions, which all were close encounters! The strongest team in this group and they can’t be forgotten is Houli’sHeroes.

Group G, Involves 1 of the Cups top seeds in Mt Evelyn Old Boys, he has played many Cups now with us and we appreciate his involvement, this group also has the lowest ranked entrant in Div VI club Kingsbury Comets FC, and he tells me he is an absalute SEN 1116 radio station junkie, he simply can’t get enough of it! 2 remaining teams are Team Fleet + Hewsdale Harriers.

Group H, is a Wowza of a group! It features SEN FED Forums Guru Dough_Boy and his Seaford FC, up against an old foe in -wilson- and his Drumleagues United, both should be hot favourites to progress, but watch out for the ‘L For Loser’ team which is rumoured to be leeny63’s naughty second team! 😉 The 4th team in this group is Kewell Magic F.C who again was 1 of last seasons biggest FED Cup weekly raters!

Group I, See’s the return to our FED Cup of Casula United and manager Kizza, he’s from enemy territory and will be plotting our downfall and hoping of taking our Cup accross the border to NSW! Also in this group is a favourite team of mine in the name of ‘The Beg Tets’, formerly named ‘The Big Tits’ before the Oceanian GM’s found out and switched his team name… poor bugger! 😉 Blueblueboy888 + The Borough are also located in this group.

Group J, Spells possible DOOM for atleast 1 of these teams, with each of them being an SEN FED Forum regular at various stages of the last 12 months, with all 4 evenly matched in ratings and squad depth.. these include; Middle Park Rovers, Wallaroo Dogs, Smitlick + FC Hihi. I just can’t seperate these guys!

Group K, The Div III Portsea Aggies can be viewed down here with a relatively easy group to smash up on, manager sperkins was excited by last seasons cup, and has returned for another bout! The 3 clubs that will be trying to take the easter chocies away from manager sperkins are BeatyouAGAIN, darkness333 + Lone Prong Athletic.

Group L, Is the last group and will be interesting to see who prevails out of ‘ratings boom team’ City Utd, the returning Whites Wongs, and SEN 1116 Fans Fed original petevas and his Yarra Park Bears, this guy has been around since day dot, and played many editions of this Cup! VS Vlissingen is also ever improving and returns for another shot at SEN FED Cup glory!

So to conclude.. thanks and best wishes to everyone involved in the 15th Edition of the SEN 1116 Fans Fed Cup, and may the match engine be with us all… always.. and please let their be No fisti-cuffs during this campaign like these bunch of panzies!

 

Woz.
