After a lengthy break we are resuming our league campaign this coming Sunday, 16th October, against the Italians from Azzurri. This should be a tough game.
Kick off is scheduled at 2 PM at the Lido (=Side Gongyuan). Who is available?
Please reply as soon as possible and remember to attend training tomorrow, wednesday12th 8-10pm at the Lido. Attending training is the main criterion for selection for the weekend game.
PS: we had 3 volunteers for writing the match reports: Aaron Thio, Lee Russell and Ian Crouch. So we can expect some entertaining reading after our next game. Pikey’s idea to ask the MOM or Donkey of the match to write the match report sounded good but unfortunately I have to say that a past attend to implement this idea had failed so I would rather have a volunteer (who does not need to be the same every week as we have several candidates).
Citizens,Well done Saturday, a cracking display from all involved. It’s that togetherness that will keep us going till the end of the season!Stats website down so here’s a few game facts:Team:55′ A good move on the left led to a good switch from Ivan for Fabio on the right. The ghanean Wonder crossed it low for Ivan to finish off with ease. 1-065′ Useless foul from Philippe 40 yards out: the Fortuna centre back hit a tricky ball in the box and their striker with the slightest of touches put our rivals back in the game. 1-172′ Blythe hit a good corner, Both Ivan and Philippe double headed the ball in – Ex-poneytail man Ivan claimed it with a more enthusiastic celebration.2-182′ Blythe hussled the ball off their centre backs – clean through, 15 yards out and with only the keeper to beat, the Spurs man finished them off with a typical blythesque scuffed shot accross the goal. Boom. 3-1MOM: Blythe big game at the back – 1 assist – and 1 goal after a 5 minute stint up frontDOM: Ivan forgeting to bring the Donkey hat + his little yelp of agony and dismay after seeing his man get subbed. His girlfriend was not impressed.This coming Sunday we play against Azzurri, a team we know well. These kind of games are equally important, we need to win and keep our nerves. In fact, the first round of beers is on me if we manage a win and 0 yellow/red cards.So Sunday 12pm Kick Off Lido pitch ARE YOU AVAILABLE? please RSVP NOWCITY!!!Philippe
