Ararat-Armenia defeated Alashkert today and took over the first place. They have a pretty good roster & VM is doing a good job. I'm excited to see how they'll do in Europe this season, even though their name doesn't make any sense.

Next year we're gonna have 10 teams. Alashkert and Ararat Armenia have a good team. Pyunik is now a bunch of Russian FNL/DIV 2 journeymen.

Shirak is trying to use their academy

Can’t forget Pyunik’s Europa League hero, Konate 😄

I’m sure he’s on his way out the next transfer window, though.

Speaking of transfers, did I hear that the legend himself Jean Jacques Bougouhi is back in the league?

Yeah, He's playing for Ararat Armenia. Some of the guys on Ararat Armenia were recently playing in the Portuguese league, so they have some good midfielders along with Petros Avetisyan.

Also, Alashkert added Russian veteran striker Prudnikov and ex Ural and Chilean NT player Gerson Acevedo.

Pretty random fact, but former Alashkert striker Heber Araujo signed with NYCFC.

You know what I saw that signing on Twitter and thought: w-wait? Is that? 😂😂😂 So random. Let’s see if he can make it in MLS.

Interesting project happening in Dilijan. Let's see what they can do long-term.

Worth watching.

Not sure if you guys are aware, some changes to the APL regulations for next season:

only 16/23 players can be foreign players - next year it will be much stricter

Last placed team will be relegated; first place team from the First league will promote: A lot of new teams in the first league.

we're going to have two a league of two halves; after the first half, top6 will play amongst each other and decide the champion and bottom 4 will play amongst each other to see who is relegated.



Gandzasar has made some nice Armenian signings:
Vardan Arzoyan and Andranik Kocharyan both from Ararat
Artur Grigoryan - Artsakh
Gagik Maghakyan

Pyunik has brought in Legendary Edgar Manucharyan, Artyom Simonyan and Artak Yedigaryan
All former or current NT players

FC Artsakh has been renamed as FC NOA or FC NOAH
very shitty

Question, what's the story with Pyunik handing the 2008 trophy back to Ararat? Don't know the whole history, I know you've recently changed the political regime in Armenia, and Ruben Hayrapetyan's finally gone as FA president, and that he fixed things in favour of Pyunik.

Ararat and Pyunik were tied on points at the end of the season, so the title was decided by a decision game which was obviously fixed by the ref.

Great gesture by Pyunik and Soghomonyan.

Lori FC defender Nana Kwame has officially transferred to LOSC Lille:

Definitely a good case study and look for the APL.
