I also beat the shit out of Jiiim's humans (1300 TV difference). That was brilliant too. Watching those 70 SPP blitzers run from my flings was very satisfying, despite the defeat.
My thrashing from Corkir was a bit depressing, but elves will do that to you - and if just a couple of rolls had gone my way I would have threatened a draw.
Try to play solidly, giving nothing away. Goblins are great at bash - with morg, ripper, 2 trolls and a chainsaw, you have a terrifying blocker line, to say nothing of fouling every turn. You have a credible TTM threat from anywhere, as well as that leaping bugger.
Zoraster will kill a few of those elves off!
Goblins are way better than Ogres on Cyanide, especially for a rookie coach.
For next week you will try once more with the team and then if you still don't like it you'll bow out and we'll try to replace you somehow.
Can you just confirm that that's what you want to do, and then we can move the league on to week 4.
Ultimately, Goblins are a viable, but still a bit shit, team. Same as Ogres and Flings. I've seen online leagues with Goblins quite high up, so it's certainly possible to win with them against developed teams.
I don't agree that it takes time to develop a goblin or fling team, the reason being that they don't get much better with normal skills. They are almost as good straight out of the box as they will ever conceivably be, so much better to get the TV down it seems to me.
I would say ideally you would be down 900 TV minimum with a goblin team - morg, ripper and a wizard, although 930 TV would get you a bribe for your chainsaw too. I wouldn't take any other secret weapons.

I was meaning to play, but yes in the name of good practice I will have a default. I'll assume a loss unless Janek says otherwise. The next match ill play and I think I'll fire some bloat players to allow for better inducement.
I'm pretty much free from.... NOW. So if you do want to get the match in I can do so at any point this evening. Or default or whatever. It's all good.
MrPier - It's my flings against your Helves this week. Reckon you can score another 7 goals against the stunties? Morg says not!
Your fancy dan pansies are going to get stuntied to the death. If I can catch you, obv.
Friday good for you? about 8pm UK time?
Moving right on then. The new batch of matches are marked up in the sheet with a deadline of next Saturday.
Snoozer, I could play you most times in the weekend or some evening next week.
