Also, I look forward to playing you again in T2 this season
Hi Havol, yes!
I like the tactic of:
Beast and Warriors as Blockers/Support?Screen.
Pestigors as route clearers/killers.
Rotters as Ball-carriers/Scorers.
Team news before S20 MD1 -
Steel, Pestigor, levelled, with Tackle.
Tenderness II, Nurgle Warrior, has been recruited.
His predecessor, Tenderness was killed by the Crowd in the last match, after been chain-pushed into them, by some Orcs.

"Envelop and Improve" v "The Virtue of the Vicious"
..well..I would like 5, or even 6..and Extra Arms too
...and a home win.
The Misunderstood 99 2-0 The Snapping Tendons
I took 2 Babes with 60k inducements and 40k treasury.
They failed pick-up very deep in their own half, so I smothered them.
Took off two Humans for no loss and in the smother battle Nuffle favoured me - got the ball and scored T8.
Nurgle Drive: 11 Nurgle v 10 Humans:
And a half where play after play went my way - humans suffered many losses -I lost killer Pestigor KO'd T15.
With a 4 player advantage (iirc)I tried to hand off to rookie Pestigors, but all re-rolls were burned and they still filed to hold onto the ball.
In the end a Rotter thought "forget this"....and did it with his Sure Hands and Extra Arm.
Team news before S20 MD2 -
Scorpion, Pestigor, levelled, with Tackle.
EDIT...and Karl Krieg, was recruited after being re-animated.
The Human lineman was an AV9 level up, but Steel killed him in a Blitz play on turn 5.
He has taken the No. 14 Shirt (Malice II, a Rotter, in training, is a-okay with this).
Season 20 MD2 is an away game.

"Makers of products for bell polishers. Ironically it is also the name Blood Bowl afficianados (sic) give to teams who sign with them"
"Green cheese! "v "Envelop and Improve"
EDIT: spelling mistake.
13 turns of misery, then three turns of exhilaration...
..an away Draw.
Blunderworld 1-1 The Misunderstood 99
First Half of one-sided Nuffle until Underworld T8.
Underworld took my team apart: I suffered two casualties and three KO's..I managed...one casualty back. They self KO'd two.
My critical plays all failed - theirs worked like a charm until T8 when they had to use a reroll for a GFI hand-off, then failed another GFI, after the handoff.
Underworld Drive: 11 v 11.
Underworld made play after play, but did not take any of my players off...iirc....all I could do was move to contact turn after turn...they stalled two turns then scored T13.
They had used no rerolls, and had three remaining, I had had to use mine up on double skulls, and a GFI, so none to use in the last three turns.
Underworld had multi-stat boosted multi-skilled players, and a Block Troll.
it was impossible to top them when I was Nuffle-shafted too.
On the plus side my Babes worked superbly.
Nurgle Drive: 11 Nurgle v 10 Underworld:
Ball landed one off my EZ, and over two turns all my plays worked, and two Underworld plays failed.
I made a 2+ pick up, 3+ hand off, 2x GFI and scored T16...Underworld got a push back/both down rerolled into skull skull (an error - he had Juggernaut), when going to base my ball carrier..
Then on T16 they got a 1/1 GFI when attempting a 2d blitz on my ball-carrier.
It was a frustrating game - I must have flattened them 48 times and they only foored me 32....on a guess.
Three a turn for me, two a turn for them...again, a guess.
And they outbashed me....yikes.
EDIT: I flattened them 47 times, they flattened me 23 times.
Tungsten II (Pestigor) is in hospital with a Damaged Back.
He is retiring, as he is on 0 SPP's.
He had played in 4 games.
Flattening 6 opponents, causing 1 KO and 1 Stun, and he had also managed to cause one crowd surf.
He had been flattened 8 times, suffering the damaged back, 1 KO and 2 stuns.
He had never managed to get the ball.
Another career ended before it had had time to flourish.
Scouts are out on the lookout for a new No. 8 Pestigor, Tungsten III.
Fury, Rotter, levelled, with Extra Arms.
Season 20 MD3 is an away game.

"Ain't no rest for the reanimated!" v "Envelop and Improve"
..and a loss.
Exurb Exhumed Ex-Players 1-0 The Misunderstood 99
Undead took a Babe with inducements.
They brushed my team aside, made play after play, killed Steel (Pestigor) and KO'd Love (Beast).
Stalled a turn and scored T7.
Two Turn Nurgle drive: Blitz KO result and Undead swamped me, I failed every play, so no chance of scoring - managed one pass.
Nurgle drive: 11 v 11
..and a one-way kicking followed: I failed play after play, while Undead made erything.
I caused 1 KO and five stuns.
They caused a few stuns, 4 KO's and a BH.
Half ended 5 Nurgle v 10 Undead.
Team News, lost Steel, my only original Pestigor, rostered No. 6, dead.
Recruited a replacement for my No.8 who retired after the Underworld game.

Game is scheduled for Friday 17th April at 1600 Hours UTC.
The Away Stadium is called "La Casa Nostra", a Level 3 Stadium,
sponsored by the Circle of the Happy Serenity:
This sponsor has managed to gain the support of many elves and degenerate nobles of the Empire.
Moreover, the cheerleaders it provides are always a hit.
As for the rumours about their secret cult dedicated to Slaanesh, they are greatly exaggerated.
"in Faildeus ci fidiamo" v "Envelop and Improve"
La Famiglia Filadore 2-1 The Misunderstood 99
A one-sided nuffling of a game..say 4 turns neutral, 11 turns in Favour of Chaos, 1 turn in may favour.
My Drive they smothered me, Wizard failed, they scored T8 outnumbering me by five players...everything favoured the Chaas this half, ball scatters, blocks, AV rolls, you name it.
They did get a Skull Skull T1 with Minotaur, but he passed the loner roll.
Choas Drive: They scored with ease in three turns.
Nurgle Drive: Chaos went all in, I did a desperation pass and a GFI.
But to no avail, thye ripped through my team and smothered me by T15, and ball on the floor..
Last ditch depsertain play worked for a consolation TD: 3+ Dodge, 2+ Pick up, 2+ GFI.
A farce of a game where the team 450 TV higher had an exhibition match.
Lost another Warrior, ST bust. Also lost Beast dead..for a few seconds - Regen worked..first time in 7...phew.
Will be mid-table obscurity as I try and rebuild the team.
Chaos had levelled player after player, a Block Minotaur and an AG4 beast, along with the slew of Guard and one Piling On MB/Claw killer.
I fouled any times,all failed, and one spotted.
Compassion, Warrior, is in hospital with a smashed collar bone.
Steel II, Pestigor, has been recruited
S20 MD5 is a home game.

My Home Stadium is called The Mixing Bowl, a Level 3 Stadium.

The Misunderstood 99 0-4 Carnival of Dirty Counts
A complete Nuffle shafting re critical plays - all mine bar one failed, every sinhgle vampire one worled.
i played 14/16 turns outnumbered...iirc...re activ players.
I am down many players for next game, and cannot afford replacements.
I caused 2 KOs all game - they ripped through mm team, and did not take a single one of theor own player soff with BL.
They also ended the game with rerolls to spare.
...will need 3 wins to stay up, will be tough with so many rookies....yikes..but will try
