INPF Football (Soccer) League

Recommended Posts

I added Tenryuu and Takao, which leaves only one Nihon-kami-maru.

Direct matches: none

INPF1: At the top Conte di Cavour continues to reign supreme with two victories, while Belfast tries to keep up with a win of her own. La Motte-Picquet closes in on Leningrad, while in a small twist of events Algerie had no match at all. Perth continues her winning streak and snacks Augusta and Moskva, but Verdun also had no match for even stranger reasons..... why had LMP two then?? And Köln returned with a victory which catapults her away from the bottom!

INPF2: In the second division, the first four ships all fought without a flaw. A bunch of other teams had curiously no match this week. Canarias now leads the fascist infight in the midfield. But Axum had and won! She's now into striking range to leave the loser three and ascend into more proper regions.

Reactivated ships: Köln

I added some irrelevant Walküre.... hasn't even had a first peek or something.... tsk. And our only submarine of the league: Axum she also completes "Team Africa".

Direct Matches: none

INPF 1: Conte did her best and got 6 points, while Belfast got sloppy and lost. This makes Conte a very lone first, indeed. The pursuer of the top too left feathers, but the lowest of the active Walküren, Verdun and Köln managed each to win, bringing them to safety. And the US and IJN fans should slowly get some blood pressure lowering medicine or opiates......

INPF 2: The top 3 all fumbled a bit and only gained 1 point, giving AGS the opportunity to close up again and she used it. Apart from that a mixed bag, but Canarias got 4 points and finally left the twins behind her. Axum sadly could not advance behind Nürnberg, but at least she gained 1 point, which is more than Nürnberg got.

Reactivated ships: none, probably Pola next week.

I added two Yanks: Lady Lex and Nevada

Direct matches:
Parishkaya Kommuna 1-1 Dunkerque
Arizona 0-4 Wichita

INPF 1: While Conte continues in her perfect flawlessness, Belfast managed to at least score 6 points an close the gap a little. La Motte-Picquet used a thick 6 point week to send Leni out of the triumvirate of leadership. Talking about Leni: She's back. Mixed start with 3 out of 6 points. At least she can now fight that French pirate. Her sister was a bit more busy and got 9 out of 12, keeping both Verdun and Perth finally at bay.  Algerie had a bad match and Perth again only played remi, so Verdun now snuck up to her. Köln went emptyhanded, so did Pola who rejoined the active teams. Oh and did I mention some non European Walküren started to warm up and played matches? *takes a deep breath* Augusta did fine and scored 4 points, so did Chiyoda, our Canadian Walküre Saguenay restarted the championship with a win and Wichita came out of the box with a double strike, one again Arizona from 2nd div as a friendly. All of that shook up the lower regions of the table quite a bit, but the beauty sleep leaves a lot to catch up. Next week more will join.

INPF 2: In the second division Exeter stumbled heavily with 0 of 6 points, which Hood used to at least see her in the distance again. Bearn and Spee also made 3 points, so they follow in equal distance hand in hand... or kicking and screaming.... P-K and Dunkerque met and fought to a remi, see above. An opportunity seized by Canarias who snuck past Dunkerque because of it. Arizona got devastated, but in a friendly way, by Wichita from 1st div. So no points for her. Gneisenau and Scharnhorst on the other hand scored a whole point each. Nürnberg even got 3 points, pushing her past Kaga and Axum used her own 3 points to jump directly behind Nürnberg. Speaking of the IJN Walküren, they'll mostly join at the end of the month. 

Still dormant Walküren:
Kongou, SL City, Kumano, Tenryuu, Lexington and Houston in INPF 1 (6 out of 20)

Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)

I added Saguenay and Kitakami, finishing all INPF2 teams.

Direct Matches: Parishkaya Kommuna 1-2 Béarn

INPF 1: Clear winners of the matchday are the Soviets. Leni and Moskva crushed the opposition and are the only two Walküren with more than 3 points. Getting Leni up into the top 3 again. There were also a looot of postponed or canceled matches for the ladies, so 0 points doesn't mean defeat. Except you're Conte! Yes, the Italian lady stumbled, ending her latest 7 win streak. Belfast also got defeated. In a nice change of things our two bottom Walküren, Pola and (back in action and honorary soviet) Houston won each once. Pushing Lexington to the very bottom. And if you dislike Canadians: Saquenay lost twice. Next week I eye Kongou and Lady Lex to rejoin. 

INPF 2: The Top 4 all won, so no change at the top. However Béarn managed to prevent P-K from scoring. And Canarias scored 3. So P-K now has Canarias breathing down her neck. As a little side note: All three french clubbed Walküren in 2nd Division have very strong French 3rd division teams. Ironically the table leader, Dunkerque is the worst of them in INPF2. But maybe not for long. Scharnhorst equals the core with her sister, but apart from that there is no change on the table for today.

Still dormant Walküren:
Kongou, SL City, Kumano, Tenryuu and Lexington in INPF 1 (5 out of 20)

Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)

I added Хьюстон

Direct matches: none

INPF1: Almost all teams left points on the field, with Algerie and returnee Kongou as exceptions. While Kongou climbed in front of Perth and Augusta that way, Algerie wasn't so lucky and Moskva made 4 points and thus got in front of her. In the pretty broad danger zone (Kumano and below) duds were had left and right with the notable exception of returnee Lexington. She scored 3 points. I also finally applied the secondary sort of fewer matches = better, so those 3 points catapulted her right out of the relegation zone.

INPF2: The top 4 Walküren all went flawless, but Hood and Exeter again scored twice. so the only hope is the cropping at the end of the season will draw them closer. I still haven't decided how to manage the vast differences in matches at the end of the season. There were also a lot of draws this matchday in the 2nd division. The whole Kriegsmarine i.e. Axum managed to use her point to push past Kaga, making the dormant Walküren now the end of the table entirely. Apart from that nothing changed at all.

Still dormant Walküren:
SL City, Kumano and Tenryuu in INPF 1 (3 out of 20)

Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)

Last, but certainly not least (but terribly endangered to relegation), I finally added Pola. Now all teams currently available for the Walküren have a description.

Direct matches:
Chiyoda 1-0 Perth
Nagato 1-0 Aoba

INPF1: Chiyoda and Perth met in direct match and Chiyoda sunk Perth and surpassed Verdun (same points, fewer matches). Also Tenryuu rejoined with a win and makes a giant leap out of the relegation spots. Apart from that Pola made 4 points and thus surpassed Houston, Lex and Saguenay all at once. Suddenly the relegation is a purely USN affair. For now. apart from that nothing changed on the first 8 places. Everyone except Belfast and Conte have someone to fight with for rank.

INPF2: Exeter got nothing from two matches. The Kriegsmarine mostly failed, only Spee won. Which gets her back into promotion ranks. Axum played her last match for now, but the result will only be in next week. And her timing is horrible, because the IJN behind her sprung almost entirely back into action. Kaga is back with a loss. Nagato and Aoba immediately went after each other, with the Battleship besting the cruiser. And Takao at least got a point. The last USN Walküre, Nevada is also back, but got nothing to show for it. All of this shakes up the lower regions nicely. 

Inactive Walküren:
Kumano, SL City (INPF1) and Kitakami (INPF2)

Special note: Japanese Leagues and Cup got completely canceled until further notice over the COVID-19 crisis in Japan. Other countries represented opted for empty stadiums (like Italy).

Direct matches: 
Saguenay
2-1 Lexington
Béarn 2-0 Dunkerque

INPF1: Belfast won and the rest of the top 5 stumbled. Leni and Moskva interestingly enough both against clubs from Moskva, not representing her. The IJN Walküren all suffer from the cancellation of their matches. In the nether regions, Saguenay wins a "6 pointer match" by beating her direct rival Lexington and steering free from relegation for now.

INPF2: Same as in INPF1: All IJN Walküren do not play until further notice. Coventry makes use of another weak week by Exeter and sneaks up to her. In the fight for 3rd promotion place Spee takes a blow by Béarn who makes short work of her country woman Dunkerque. The Kriegsmarine shreds its opposition in a nice change of pace (for me) and wins all their matches...well except for Spee who draws. Axum ends her first seasonal leg with a loss. Nevada loses as well and thus gets stuck "inside" the IJN.

Direct Matches: 
Wichita 4-0 Houston
Nürnberg 0-3 Scharnhorst

INPF 1: Conte could distance herself, since Belfast lost. Belfast on the other hand slowly comes into range for Leni and LMP. *dun dun duuun* Otherwise no position changed except in the nether regions: Pola scored a decisive victory and jumps well above the danger zone, at least in places, if not in points. And Lady Lex used the wrecking of Houston by Wichita to leave last place. If your heart lies in the upper regions you might feel a slight bore. If it lies in the nether regions...... you probably need some meds to stay calm.

INPF 2: Our 2nd division was.... unstable. Only Hood won in the promotionists group, bringing her up right behind Exeter. Arizona showed her old, lost strength and Scharnhorst sunk Nürnberg. Glorious victory for Gau VIII over XVI, making Scharnhorst the highest ranked Kriegsmarine ship on the table. Spee limped onto 3rd place, don't ask her about it. Canarias won as well and took 5th place away from P-K, but the midfield is as secure as it is hopeless to reach promotion ranks. Axum lost a bit embarrassing to a team literally called "Ethiopian Coffee"...... but at least she's still in the fight. Nevada won and can now start chewing up the IJN Walküren in front of her, who are completely helpless for now.

Since almost all leagues involved are suspended over the Covid-19 pandemy until at the very least 22nd of March, don't expect any updates until mid-April.
