The British are coming!
Watch out Fumbbl, the White Isle League is going for glory in this years Fumbbl Cup. The White Isle League is one of the premier leagues in Fumbbl and has some very well known names in the ranks. Yes I know not all of them are from the Britain, but we’ll adopt anyone with even a tenuous link to the UK and after a rubbish week for British sport we need someone to cheer.

29 of the 56 coaches from the league have entered teams, many of us have never taken part in a major before and just wanted to join in, picking our best or highest TR team and playing for the fun of it. So far we’ve played ½ of the 1st round games and have a winning record.

I think so far we’ve proved that you can’t underestimate any of our coaches, and a much higher CR is no indication of the result. Ludovicious started off with a hard fought OT loss to a very good coach who had the better team, Astarael, lemf (sorry lemf I missed you out in the thread, but you are on the wiki page) and PhrollikK all gave a good account of themselves before losing and a special mention to ultwe who’s flings made a heroic stand versus some rotters, a bit more luck on the cas rolls in the 1st half and he could’ve taken it to OT.

Copycat, Cribbleobblepie, Gritter, Woodstock and Xenon have all won their games, some of them being hard fought affairs.

A special mention must go to both Cyrus-Havoc and Phil78 both of them took on better teams and higher rated coaches and pulled of wins, I‘d predicted they would lose these games, but was all too happy to be proved wrong. Both opposing teams had cash for stars and chose to save for the 2nd round so it just proves you can’t underestimate the WIL and Cryrus and Phil had low CR’s going into the game. I watched Cyrus’s game and it was won on an amazing turn 23 play by his thrower when all looked lost. I missed Phil’s game but his elfs performed heroics and came away in pretty good shape. And as I write this Wotfudboy has just won almost 40TS down vs. a Dark Elf team with only a single DP Khemri team.

Sadly Gritter has played his 2nd round game already and lost to some nice Wood Elves, he did at least kill one of them though.

We still have some of our top coaches to play Borgen, Pigstar, Popcorn, Britnoth, and Purplegoo have all been tipped to be coaches to watch and we have the defending champ PeteW too.

Finally I managed to win my round 1 match, I was facing a heavily niggled skaven team that gave me 2 handicaps with my undead but they did have a 1 turner. I managed to pull off a 2-0 win, scoring on turn 8 in the 1st half, not really playing my best but the count did me proud. Then turning over the skaven in the 2nd to score on turn 8 thanks to a combination of the weather and having worn the skaven down.

The support I got from the WIL mafia really made the game for me, every cas was cheered and when my mummy sacked the thrower in the 2nd half there was a mighty roar from the crowd, I think it gave me a slight psychological edge, mind you they did /boo me for choosing to foul the 1 turner rather than surf a stormvermin and for stopping fouling once the game was won.

This has helped further build our league community and we all try and turn up to support our WIL buddies and give advice on skill choices and how to spend money for the next game.

The forum discussion with all my predictions for round 1 is Here, (ignore Russo’s silly poll as 4 of those teams didn’t even make it into the FC) and there is a wiki page charting our progress.

Best of luck to all the remaing WIL round 1 games, I'll try and spec and cheer you on.
