I have to say I'm looking forward to this match! A little stress relief from studies never hurt anyone.
Ravenclaws, we'll see you on the pitch. I reckon it'll be fun.

Right, we're having our first game soon. You've all done a good job during training and I'm proud to be the captain of this team. We're going to have to do better than a good job this match though; I say it's high time we show this school that us Puffs aren't just a bunch of pushovers. I say, we rip the Ravenclaws to shreds and send out the warning to the Gryffs and the Slytherins that the Honey Badgers will be the ones to lift the cup this year!
And even you lot who aren't playing. I hope you don't go thinking that you're not part of this effort, because you all damn well are. It's actually a great boost to us, when people cheer for their house. If you all could spare the time to come down to the match to show some house pride, that's a great help you know? So I better see a full stand on that day.
Tsukino! I've spoken to Vargas already and he's agreed to help you on those banners if you're still keen on them.
Also, I'm sure you've all seen Feferi's post. I'm all keen for calling ourselves the Honey Badgers. If no one's got any objections, then that's what I'd like the team to be called.

OK, first game is coming up! I've got some advice I'd like to give to each of you.
Roxas. You're a great Chaser, but some times you get a little too excited and carried away when you get the ball. Make sure you share it with your other Chasers. I need the three of you to work tightly together and provide support. Feferi, you're great for support but I need you to be a bit more confident with the ball when you do have it. Be a bit more aggressive and don't be afraid to take those shots when you get the chance.
Vlad. Eliza. I know the two of you have your differences, but I'm asking the two of you to put them aside for this match. No arguing or fist fights or dirty looks, alright? Concentrate on your roles. Eliza, back up Roxas and Feferi. You're our most experienced Chaser, you've got to be there to help them out when they need it. And try to keep the rough play down a little, alright? They're Ravenclaws, I don't think they could take a hit without falling of their brooms, and we can't afford to lose points through fouls. Vlad, the Claws have got great Chasers, but I say we've got the better Keeper! You've always been sharp with catching the Quaffles, so all I've got to comment is that you've got to focus. Keep an eye if you see two of them coming toward you. The Beaters will do our best to keep them from ganging up on you, but I'm confident you'll be able to stop the goals.
This is what we practised for, so let's get out there and give Hogwarts a performance they'll never forget!
