You're predicting CMF Wolves to get relegated from Prem? That's the only way Lupi could go up...Campo/Santos/VAFC and Greencaps go down next year.
Metro Ford and Richmond Hibs go up
That's fine from a league perspective. It's only Prem where you can't have more than one team per club. Functionally though, given their struggles at the minute I wouldn't be surprised to see Greencaps go to just one team again next season, potentially opening up a bonus promotion spot in Div. 2. Then again, their Div. 2 team is looking like potential relegation fodder as well currently which would make that moot.what happens with greencaps if they get relegated? They already have a team in Div 2
only way you predict west side win is you knowVancouver Crapcaps- Rino's Fury: Fury run over the crapcaps 3-0
Westside FC - Richmond Hibs UBC- Westside with the upset 2-1
VAFC Santos - Westside Sierra- Sierra drop a touchdown on the crapo 7-0 Westside
Norvan Storm - GN Sporting- more like Norvan rain shower not a storm at all. GN bounce back 4-0
Metro Ford Lupis vs Club Inter/Chilli - Lupis win 3-1
Burnaby Metro vs Vancouver Strikers- Burnaby under new management.... Strikers win 2-1
The league is starting to separate faster then Campo after 3 weeks of league play. Campo/Santos/VAFC and Greencaps go down next year.
Metro Ford and Richmond Hibs go up
GN 1-1 Santos.It would seem that Richmond are invincible no longer, though they remain undefeated and in first place. After the first blemish on their record, will it signal an opportunity for other teams to have a go at them? Or will they continue to lead the way comfortably leaving the other sides to fight it out for the second promotion place? Time will tell...
Completely Baseless Predictions - Week 7
GN Sporting v VAFC Santos
The performances of the latest iteration of Santos seem to have improved. They are still losing, but it seems that they are at least competitive as it has been back to back 1-0 losses. Evidently the new relationship with Burnaby Metro management has supplied a handful of players that can at least put in a shift at this level. A trek to Delta on a miserable Friday night though should be a true test of whatever improvement they may or may not have made. GN got back to winning ways after their loss to UBC, though it almost all came tumbling down after they took a 3-0 lead, only hanging on for a 3-2 win over an average at best NorVan group. The change in seasons and weather may well be having its stereotypical effect on the GN boys and for anybody else I would likely suggest that they are ripe for the taking this week. However, Santos are hardly "anybody else" and I very much doubt this will be where they pick up they first point or points of the campaign.
Richmond Hibernian v NorVan Storm
After their draw with Westside took the shine off their perfect season, UBC will be looking to get back to winning ways straight away. Fortunately, NorVan are mired near the bottom of the league and should be a fairly straightforward task for the juggernaut UBCers. "Richmond" will host this game on their third different campus based field, though it seems they have secured a home at UBC through at least the end of November. The issue for NorVan is that they a prone to giving up early goal. Other than their lone win of the season, they have scored first just one time. Trying to play catch up against UBC is a recipe for disaster and if NorVan go behind early this one is all but surely lights out. With the league's leading goal scorer Seb Dzikowski having rediscovered his scoring touch against Westside, the odds are fairly good that UBC will bang one in here, making it an uphill fight for the Storm.
Club Inter EDC Burnaby B v Burnaby Metro Athletic
It was back to regularly scheduled programming for Chinter after they took care of business against the two bottom teams in the league. Their six points gives them an early cushion on relegation, which is really the only realistic aim for this group. That being said, their performance in a 1-0 loss to Lupi was surely encouraging internally, so maybe the former Chileans will fancy their chances against Burnaby Metro. Metro avoided another disastrous result when they got all three points in a 1-0 against Strikers to keep them realistically still in the promotion hunt. The biggest issue for Burnaby, though, is that they still have games looming against UBC and GN and they will likely need to get something out of those matches. If they drop further points between now and those games, though, it may all be moot. They need this result, but Inter will not just let them have it. Look for a spirited affair between local rivals in this one, but Metro's desperation should carry the day.
Westside FC Sierra v Vancouver Greencaps
There was only a single goal in it for Sierra in their win over bottom side Santos. Now they host the team second from bottom in Greencaps, who earned their first point of the season in a 2-2 with Rino's last week. Despite the difference in the current places in the the table of these two sides, this one looks well matched. Certainly it would appear set to be a cagey affair, with neither side clattering in the goals so far this season. The have been 15 goals scored between these two through 12 games, which does not exactly scream entertainment to the casual observer. Greencaps have been woeful to begin the season and even if they overachieved last season and have lost some pieces, one still has to think they are better than their record thus far. Sierra are favourites here, but only just and expect Greencaps to put in a solid effort now that they have finally got off the mark for the season.
Vancouver Strikers v Westside FC A
In a week where all the top six are playing teams from the bottom six, this is likely the closes we will get to a true MOTW. Strikers took advantage of a softer early schedule to put up three wins on the spin, but now they have lost two straight after a 1-0 loss to Burnaby Metro. Westside are coming in on a high after being the first side this season to get anything off "Richmond" when they tied 1-1 last week, a result that leaves the Westsiders well poised as they head into a stretch of games against the teams in the bottom half of the table. They will need to hold their nerve though if they want to be considered true promotion contenders, as even one slip could be catastrophic to their chances. Strikers certainly present a challenge, and will likely want to get the better of their local rivals from up the street in Point Grey. It has been the offense that has got the job done to this point for Strikers with last years leading goal scorer from their promotion winning side, Bryan Da Cruz, having already found the net three times at this higher level, while Gavin Lytton leads the team this season with five goals in six games. That being said, the strength of schedule comes into play again as the newly promoted boys have only managed a single goal in their two recent losses. Look for Westside to flex their muscles, and experience at this level, in this one.
Rino's Fury v Coquitlam Metro Ford Lupi
Given that it is top half against bottom half, it stands to reason that the top teams will not go six for six. That being said, looking at the schedule, it is tough to see where the bottom six might get a result. Usually Rino's would be a fairly safe bet for an upset as they begin to rumble to life part way through the season. However, their two most recent results against the bottom two sides produced a narrow 1-0 win over Santos and then they granted Greencaps a first point of the season in 2-2 draw. Lupi, meanwhile, are flying high having five wins and just a lone loss to begin the season. Rino's can never be totally written off, but something just is not clicking at the minute for the Vancouver boys. Look for Lupi to take advantage on Sunday.
