We may be a team... but only one of us performed. Great stuff mate. On average we must be the best performing team on average over the past four years. 

Admittedly, we are the only constant duo, but facts are facts. 🤣

Two bronze medals and a silver isn’t too bad in the last 3 years and I do enjoy the fact that you keep up the English tradition of being too polite to actually win the event.

That’s it for kids for us now. Both of mine have overlapped with this tournament hilariously.  My other half is rumoured to have contacted Foxy to get future tournaments cancelled.

Totally agree. We need to prep. We need a boot camp. You did amazing this year though. Top marks to you.

I’d just like to clarify that more than three teams took part in each of these.

Yours truly, the Reigning Olympic Champion.

Unlucky Asia and congratulations team England. I didn’t pick up on the rule break during reading so came as a bit of a shock towards the end.

That was one exciting match! Thanks to both teams for the edge of the seat stuff. Congrats Asia for a good tournament and England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 of course for the 🥉.

I expect one of you to make the final next year.

Excellent stuff guys! Still don't understand the rules after reading them four times so I can see why broodje kip made his mistake. Too bad team Asia, but better luck next edition. Maybe a rematch in the finals against Woody and Rob next time! 👍

Welcome to the Vibe World Cup Final 2020.

It is a gloriously sunny afternoon here in Cheltenhamshire for this eagerly anticipated clash between the Dutch Dynamos and the Parmo Army and by the end of the day one team will be crowned VWC champions 2020 along with someone also taking home the Golden Mobile trophy for the competitions highest points scorer.

This is an event that is starting to build up a history so before the final let’s remind ourselves of the previous winners.

VWC 2018 - Link

🥇- Wales - @Taff and @Nucleus

🥈 - England - @Rob and @Woody

🥉 - Benelux - @PriZe and @Titjes

Golden Mobile - @PriZe

VWC 2019 - Link

🥇- Scotland - @samhardy and @Ian

🥈- Japan - @Ashez and @Foxy

🥉- England - @Rob and @Woody

Golden Mobile - @Foxy

The Final

The third place playoff wasn’t necessarily high on quality play but it certainly had drama as England took the 🥉 medal thanks to @broodje kip not following the rules regarding nationalities he could use.

Luckily in the final there was no such problems and it was a straight fight of who could amass the most points and take home the trophy.

Netherlands - @Foxy

The only league of choice for Player 2’s in this event was Portugal it seems as all four of us played in that league, I was the only one to go with Benfica though as I didn’t fancy my chances of winning either European Trophy so I simply thought I would get rid of the best squad in the league.

This was my teams.

I won the league but it was close as it went to the final game of the season between myself and Porto although we did have a 3 point cushion going into that game so it wasn’t too nervous. I dropped a lot of league points though which I made up for a bit with my +50 GD to give me...

128pts from the league stage.

I made both domestic cup finals winning the League cup which gave me an extra 20pts

My aim was to finish 3rd in my CL group and going into the EL which I did but I only managed the Quarter Finals before Lazio dumped me out.

This gives me a total of 148pts but I still have my bonus points from pairs that scored 20+ goals.

I managed to get all 4 of my attacking pairs to score 20 or more which gave me an extra 40pts on my total.

This gave me a final points total of...

188pts

The North East - @samhardy

We saw @Kanegan struggle in the bronze match and get sacked as PSG manager and that was the same club choice that “big” samhardy made as well. He will need to do better than Kane though other wise this final will be as good as over.

The Seaham Space Cowboy went with these players.

I am already on the back foot as Sam won the league with a hefty 87pts and 42 GD giving him an initial 129pts and a 1pt lead over my score at the same stage.

image.png.b8dc56d60a1e92dad7d0ddea1e16b871.png

Just like me Sam never did anything in Europe so it is down to domestic cups and pairs goals to see who has a half time lead.

More good news for the North East as the French Cup was collected and 20pts along with it.

image.png.afd0b3c1609bcf1dda950ffa614cd34e.png


The difference maker was that Sam could only get three pairs to 20+ goals.

This gave Sam an extra 30pts onto his total and means he scored....

179pts

At the half way point it is very close as the Dutch go in with a 9pt lead in the match.

Netherlands 188pts The North East 179pts

The North East - @smoggy90

This is a chance for Smoggy to put some pressure on now as a good score will leave the Dutch chasing for the title.

Smoggy went with Sporting Lisbon and had these pairs and I do think the inclusion of Jack Rodwell was a real slap in the face for his Mackem team mate.

image.png.1b99039ed776ba6d4e5e08a79e0cd424.png

The Teeside Terror was straight at it as well with a magnificent league performance losing just once and only having 5 draws. The 89pts coupled with the +54GD gave him an initial score of 143pts.

image.png.0aa59a84dda8c586b63088070a591d43.png

The points kept coming as well as he won the League Cup to add another 20pts but despite a good run to the Semi Finals that was as good as it got in Europe.

image.png.6c6d6762058aa0e5389b6d2f706f76f7.png
 

Still that gives Smoggy a score of 163pts before his pairs goal points are added.

Smoggy was clever in his team building and managed to get an incredible 5 pairs to score 20 or more goals adding a further 50pts.

This gives Smoggy a final total of...

213pts

The North East score 392pts and lead by 204pts

Netherlands - @BatiGoal

That means Bati needs to score 204pts to force a penalty shootout and 205pts for the title.

It is a big ask but the Bangkok Goal Machine has been on fire throughout the whole tournament and even with his history in finals who would back against him at this stage?

I thought Bati might travel back to his native Holland for this challenge but clearly his banishment from that country isn’t over yet so he took charge of Brondby in Denmark.

This was the squad he put together.

Spoiler

image.png.3b2ba9807daa4bae0499e340152b43ca.png

image.png.e929673ae9974a90eb680461557654b2.png

Winning the league was a must in this challenge and Bati duly delivered. He had 83pts and a 31 GD giving him 114pts at this stage.

image.png.49fb85074b6706eba5fe00b59bcace13.png
 

That low GD total is looking like it will make things a bit tricky as he needs to find at least 90pts from somewhere to force a penalty shootout. That isn’t impossible though if he could win the cups and get 5 pairs over 20 goals.

Spoiler

Winning in Europe was always going to be tough for any of us considering the reduced budgets we had but it was nigh on impossible for Bati with the players that would sign in Denmark. So it proved as he went out at the group stage in the EL and this final looks to be slipping away from myself and Bati very quickly indeed.

Even more of a shock is that Bati lost the Danish Cup final and another 20pts slipped through his and our fingers!

image.png.8c8109db19cb88effcc27321efbae9c9.png
 

So it was all down to pairs goal points and whether he could get 9 pairs to more than 20 goals. There are few better when it comes to getting goals out of players than Bati so this isn’t totally out of the question *it is* if he mixed his pairs positions on the pitch up a bit to try and get more goals spread around if games were won.

Spoiler

He got four pairs to score 20 or more which gave him 40 more points.
image.png.5a65b6bd9fa9679ac2679dcb784cca03.png
 

This gives @BatiGoal a total score of....

154pts

Netherlands score 342pts

So the finals score looks like this...

Netherlands 342pts The North East 392pts

It is another final heartbreak for @BatiGoal and myself as I present to you your VWC 2020 champions..

winners.png.044f582b58ecd777057fbbba0916bcd9.png

Many congratulations to @samhardy as he retains the trophy and @smoggy90 who wins it for the first time. 

 

That just leaves the Golden Mobile Award to hand out.

Spoiler

There is some small consolation for @BatiGoal as he takes the award for the most points scored in the competition but I’m sure he would have preferred to have taken home the main prize.

1921258339_goldenmobilewk5.thumb.png.a4c03fd1d092d7bd73770fa7372a32d4.png

This Weeks Individual Points Totals

@smoggy90 - 213pts

@Foxy - 188pts

@samhardy - 179pts

@BatiGoal - 154pts

@Woody - 10pts

@broodje kip and @Kanegan - 0pts

 

That brings this years VWC to a close so thank you to everyone who took part as I think you all contributed to a fun event and thank you to everyone who has followed along.

See you all next year.

I'm glad I needed this much. Of course I wasn't happy with the pts I scored, I lost the Cup Final missing out on 20pts and was unlucky with a few results towards the end. I could've scored 180-190 but not 200+. So a well deserved win for the Boys of the East of the North, @smoggy90 & @samhardy. Congrats guys. 

@Foxy, you're a great teammate and host, well done to you.

Big thanks to the vibing participants to make this a super fun event. 

Cheers everyone and see you at the next one.
