    La Nazione Griffons Eliminated from ANAFA, Not A Surprise To Anyone The inevitable has happened: the Griffons were eliminated the other day from the ANAFA Cup, a fate that has been abundantly clear since Week 3. The team had a completely devastating series and it is all the fault of the now-former coach Roberto Scozzari. He was immediately terminated following the final match. The President of the Soreanan Football Association has announced that they would begin looking for his replacement and commented that they would consider a coach from abroad to properly train the team ahead of the next major event. Soreana exits the competition with the worst standing, 1-8. The one player that had been keeping the team short of death was Lorenzo Orsini. He has returned to his regular domestic team in the town of Tenza. Despite the unfortunate result at the international stage, Lorenzo's agent has said that Soreana F.C. has actively shown interest in bringing Orsini onto their squad. He would not confirm if a formal offer has been made.

    La Nazione Lamborari Releases New Supercar, the L-5 Lamborari, Soreana's sole automotive manufacturer, today announced that it would be releasing a new car model to its line of supercars: the L-5. The presentation of the model comes on the company's restructuring following a dismal two years of sales as it competes against larger competitors including KAP of Prymont and Visto Cars. Alfonso Vitiello, CEO of Lamborari, said that he was optimistic that the L-5 would gain worthy praise in the car community. He said that everything had been extensively examined and recalibrated. Vitiello said the L-5 would have made the founder, Luca Lamborari, a very happy man. Alfonso Prodi, the President of the Soreanan Auto Club was the first to purchase an L-5. He was seen getting into the car, punching it to 100, and speeding out of the city into the Soreanan Forests to get acquainted with his latest addition. Lamborari's L-5 will be a major presence at the Soreana Car Expo in late January.

    La Gazetta dello Sport Soreanans Routed by Limonaians: Put the Team Out of Its Misery Staff Op-Ed The Soreanan Griffons were completely routed 0-3 by Limonaia in at the stadium in Limone. If you didn't watch it, you were better than the fifteen-thousand Soreanans who traveled across the border to see it in person. Our fellow writer who has been writing this column the last few weeks has been hospitalized as he experienced a heart attack from the disaster of a game. Everyone knows the Griffons aren't going to the knockout stage. That fact has been known since Week 3 and the final nail in the coffin was Orsini's abrupt departure at the conclusion of last week's game. The young 23-year-old was the only thing keeping the team together and it is abundantly clear that his leaving the team has had a profound negative impact upon the remaining players. Due to the situation, the coach has been forced to change the lineup, having less than 11 on the field and having a midfielder who is not adept at playing in a forward position to fill the gap. As we saw on the pitch, the player he chose was absolutely horrible and made no attempt to score in the slightest. We urge the Soreanan Football Association to fire the coach when this all over and find someone from abroad to do the job. Whoever this person ultimately is, our advice to him is that he actually removes all of the players except for forward Dante Parrotta (#10), while our colleague has been harsh over all of the players, we disagree with his opinion on Dante and think if he were given better attention and further skill development, he could be a strong leader and primary center of a new core for a revived Griffon team. Though there are still two more weeks of the round robin stage, Soreana should just capitulate and withdraw from the competition - if they remain on the pitch, they're only embarrassing the nation and our Grand Dutchess. If the coach has one scrap of actual competence, he'll take our advice. To conclude, we will leave you with this consistent opinion: we hate the coach. We're never going to love him. He is an absolute con-man and he has no true experience to run a team. Whoever hired him in the first place, should also be fired.

    La Nazione Lorenzo Orsini Leaves Soreanan National Football Team After Dispute with Coach Members of the Soreanan press witnessed a massive shouting match between emergency forward Lorenzo Orsini and Coach Roberto Scozzari following the away game against Seylos where their opponent beat them 1-0. The origins of the fight are still disputed but Orsini's agent claims that Scozzari was blaming him for the team's misfortunes, despite, as the agent stated, the young 23-year-old is responsible for nearly all of the team's goals through the competition-to-date. The debate got so heated that Orsini ripped off a team armband and threw it on the ground and walked off. Scozzari was witnessed shouting expletives at the player. Following the post-game confrontation, Orsini's agent officially notified both the coach, the Soreanan Football Association, and the ANAFA leadership that he would be leaving the national team, effective immediately. An SFA spokesperson said that the association's board has summoned the coach to meet with them in Soreana before their next match. They would not comment on whether he would be stripped of his position following the upcoming meeting. A representative for Scozzari could not be reached for comment.

    La Gazzetta dello Sport Another Loss: What a Surprise Opinion by Enzo Portella The Griffons lost to the Golden Boys of Derthalen 2-0. I mean, come on! We somehow beat the Variotan Golden Privateers and then just completely get destroyed in the following weeks. Someone one on the Variot team must have been asleep to allow us to win that match. And today's performance was pathetic. Lorenzo Orsini is the only good player on this team and he wasn't even on the team when the squad was formed, as you read in one of my previous columns. He should just walk away from the team now and forgo the League Cup and get signed up to a foreign team and then show his fellow countrymen how football is actually played and not this sad, sorted, and incompetent excuse of a group. It makes me mad just writing. You know what: Roberto, just give up, throw in the towel, and go back to your old job of running a brothel for tourists in the Old City of Soreana. I am sure your old girls would love to see you once more. I am sure our Grand Dutchess is sad to have even bothered to attend a match this year. The Prime Minister should demand hearings into Roberto's horrible strategies. I give up. Oh wait, I've given up since Week 1. I'm done with this. Note from La Gazzetta: we want to remind our readers that the Government does not have the power to remove the national football coach or liquidate the players. Only the Soreanan Football Association has that authority. A representative from the Prime Minister's office has informed us that a petition including the names of over 124,000 Soreanans was submitted demanding Pozzi remove the coach. No such action will be taken.

    La Gazzetta dello Sport A Complete Shock: Soreanan Griffons Grab Victory by the Talons over Variota Opinion by Enzo Portella I am still completely in absolute shock. They actually did it. They actually won a match. Against Variota. All the betting odds were against them and they have completely upended everything and left me speechless - and folks - it takes a considerable amount to make that happen. Variota, the second-best team in the Cup rankings, and widely considered one of the most dangerous teams on the pitch, was beaten. There are really no words to describe this other than two words: Lorenzo Orsini. Why didn't Roberto Scozzari find this kid well before the Cup began, let alone during the qualification round?! We would be owning the table if he was in the front squad from the very beginning but its clear with this win that he truly is the best thing to come out of Soreanan football. If I were the manager of Soreana F.C., the greatest domestic team, I'd buy him from Tenza right now - at whatever the price. He is simply underutilized there. Even better, a foreign team should take him on immediately after the Cup. He should definitely be in next year's squad and with that, dump Corvi. He's dead weight and was never a great forward. He was only put on the team because his own father paid the national association a rather substantial donation towards a new practice facility outside the capital. I still think Scozzari is a moron but whatever he did to beat the Variots, he just needs to do that again next week or rather, the rest of the entire round. Don't change the lineup at all. The Griffons now face Iverica, who are a totally different team and equally as dangerous. Let's not get too ahead of ourselves. The odds of us getting into the next stage is still low. The next match has been referred to by those far and wide as Orsini vs. Messy.

    La Gazzetta dello Sport Griffons Clawed by Fulgistani Tigers: Where is this Team Going? Opinion by Enzo Portella Readers: let's be honest for a moment - the Soreanan Griffons are just awful. They lost again to the Fulgistani Tigers and who told you that was going to happen? Me! The Golden Tigers dominated the entire game until the last twenty minutes when our nearly-dead players grew a spine and finally made an attempt at playing our beloved sport. They did score, but they didn't score enough to win the match. And you know who gave the team that goal: that mysterious 23-year old Lorenzo Orsini. I swear to you that if he gets at all injured at any point from here on out, Soreana should just concede the Cup and give up. Seriously guys! I am going to keep this submission brief but I am just going to say this: Roberto Scozzari should be fired by the SFA and replaced at this end of a disgraceful performance. We should be doing better than Seylos and clearly, our team has prepared for the wrong competition. The Griffons need to beat Variota, a tall order if they are to get any modicum of respect by the people. We'll see how well they meet that apparently low bar of expectation in Solaris Stadium.

    La Nazione NATIONAL SYMPHONY'S 100TH ANNIVERSARY TO FEATURE BELLINI'S CONCERTOS AND 4TH SYMPHONY Giovanni Bellini, Soreana's most beloved classical composer, is to be recognized by the National Symphony during the opening of their 100th season on November 6th at the Great Music Hall. Over his seventy-two year lifespan from 1762-1834, Giovanni penned no less than 163 pieces of wondrous music from violin quartets to full-scale symphonic masterpieces, including his world-renowned 4th Symphony in C. The SNS's Music Director and Conductor, Augusto Carinci, said that it would be appropriate to play Bellini's pieces. Both his greatest symphony and five of the seven Solaris Concertos will be performed. Grand Duchess Zaffino will be in attendance. She also intends on announcing the launch of a monarch-backed seat on the SNS for the Concertmaster, and 1st Violin, Stefania Gotti.

    2018 ANAFA League Cup

    La Gazzetta dello Sport Soreanan Griffons Shot Down by Strong Prymontian Yetis Opinion by Enzo Portella What was Roberto Scozzari thinking?! The team's defense was mediocre and it all went downhill starting in the first ten minutes when the Yetis scored for the first time. And if the defense was lousy, the offense was just as bad as Prymont had control for over half of the entire match. The only time I was remotely satisfied with the Griffons performance was that of Lorenzo Orsini, the last minute replacement for Corvi who will be out for almost all of the ANAFA Cup. Orsini was able to get the ball down the field with midfielder Zaccaria Toma and fellow forward Dante Parrotta to strike a hard goal into the corner of the Yetis' net in the 63rd minute. This loss is not a good start to the Cup for the team. Nor does it give me much encouragement that we are going to go far this cycle. There are other commentators who will tell you that the Griffons can possibly get into the second phase and you heard it here first: they're not going forward. They've said Prymont would be the hardest team Soreana would face and they haven't clearly witnessed Iverica nor Variota on the pitch. Even with the unlikely chance that the Soreanan national team will move forward, Orsini does intrigue me and I do think he has a future and if anything - its all down to him to hold the entire team up. The Griffons are playing the Golden Tigers of Fulgistan at their home stadium. They played the Red Eagles of Aluxia and would have been a draw if not for the match's only goal by Mitar Valesovic during the additional time in that match. This leads me to believe that the Fulgistanis are not pushovers. We'll see for ourselves in Bogd Gioro.
