    First week of the new season is upon us! This may be arguably the most competitive the division has been in recent years. Last year crowned a new league champion in undefeated West Van. Chile surprised with a double in the League cup and the Provincials. This may have lit a fire under the asses of former masters kingpins in Metroford. Westside will look to have a bounce back year after going trophy-less. Columbus will look to close the gap on the top of the group.

    It may be a dog fight in the bottom half of the division. Croatia is usually a solid middle of the pack team and defensively sound but scoring has been an issue. PCOV had a very slow start to the season but found a way to right the ship when it counted the most and played well in the league cup. Romania have signed a couple of solid players and look to stay out of the basement. New boys Norvan come up from Div.1 boasting a +76 goal differential although that division was a mess last season with having absorbed the div.2 teams. A solid league cup run 2 years ago is still fresh on the minds of many but can they keep it consistent over the course of the season is the question. We all know the jump from div.1 to Prem is quite significant and we(VUFC) have experienced those growing pains having been in relegation battles in consecutive years. We get another chance at it again this season and are hoping year 3 is the lucky charm. Good luck to all!

    Predictions
    PCOV M-A vs Croatia SC M...could go either way really
    VUFC Rangers M-A vs West Van FC M...would luv to ruin your day @Sir M
    NVFC Norvan Lions M-A vs Westside FC M-A...upset of the week
    Club Inter EDC Burnaby M vs FC Romania M-A...should be straightforward here
    Coq Metro Ford M PCE vs ICSF Columbus FC M-A...goals fest

    VUFC 0-3 West Van

    -15minutes in our player gets his ankle broken on a bad tackle. Will need plates and screws. Sucks!
    -Fetterly gets on to a corner kick and his effort was cleared off the line. However the rebound bounced right back to him and he slotted the ball home through a crowd inside the six.
    -a few minutes later I get hacked down in the box for a pk. I step up myself to take it and their goalie saves my effort low to the left. Rebound was cleared just before being poked in.
    -they come back down the field, get a pk of their own and Dailly buries it. 2-0.
    -we hit two crossbars down and out
    -strange 3rd goal. the ball was in our end and our player tried clearing it only for the ball to hit a West Van player and rebound agonizingly passed our keeper.
    -West Van had more possession but less real scoring chances(according to the ref). Although I found that a little flattering. Probably more even on scoring chances.
    -and the usual chippyness in our games of course.

    Not the ideal start for us but a few positives in there. Looked like West Van were missing a few players. They only had a couple of subs.

    From the Excellent site:
    PCOV and Crotia tied 2-2.
    Westside winners over new boys Norvan 4-1.

    Predictions for me and @Sir M because we're the only two in here! lol
    Here ya go buds:

    Croatia vs MetroFord - Croatia have surprised Metroford in the past but I'll go with the former champs

    Columbus vs VUFC - we hope to finally take points off of these guys!

    Romania vs PCOV - PCOV have stepped it up since the final third of last season. Basing this one on form.

    Westside vs Chinter:) - JoMo and Corraza are believed to have come with the merger which will definitely boost their attack.

    VUFC 0 - 3 Columbus

    Not much to say in this one. They were the better team.

    Columbus is like a new team in the league. They have many new players and it’s dropped their average age down by 10 years! Their div.1 team played the game before us and players like Deblasio and Blair played for the masters team. I didn’t see Poli and only wonder if he’s old enough for masters. Of course some of the old guard are still around and @LION got on the scoresheet. Columbus could definitely have something to say this year!
