Match report for Palace vs Red Cards

Match report for Summer Palace vs Red Cards, Sat 29th October 2011, Chaoyang Stadium (old pitch)
It would seem fitting that on the 29th of October, palace found itself playing a night game on the dimly lit, some would say spooky, old field at the Chaoyang Sports Center.  An eerie mist hung over the field during a vigorous warm-up that left some (Gio) short of breath.  The late arrivals joined an ample crowd of around six in watching the opening minutes of the game.  Although Palace enjoyed most of the possession at first, we only managed a few looks at goal and none were truly threatening.  Making matters worse, the red cards were not ready to capitulate so early and showed real menace for about 15 seconds, which was all it took for a neat pass to find a streaking forward who belted a brilliant ball over Jason, who had to that point been merely a spectator.  In response, palace turned up the pressure.  After making some substitutions, Palace began a renewed attack that put the Japanese on their heels for the remainder of the half. So it was, Palace 1-0 down at the half-time whistle.
The second half began with more droves of attacking from Palace.  Red Cards were doing all in their power to stave off the determined palace forwards, at points wasting time simulating injuries.  The equalizer finally came when an on form Ben Roberts put a ball into the middle.  Lee Russell came to meet the ball and volleyed it off the post.  Fortunately the rebound fell to him and he stuck it in the back of the net, after which he promptly celebrated by sprinting back to his own side and then accepting high fives.  It then seemed that Red Cards would be happy to end on a tie as they didn’t seem interested in a go ahead goal as much as wasting the rest of regulation. Giovanni changed the equation with 15 minutes to play when, following Kieran outflanking the Japanese defence from the right, he took possession of the ball in the penalty area and showed us a tricky finish which sliced under the keeper.  Lee R celebrated the Italian’s beautiful goal by running off by himself and having a geriatric fit.  Red Cards finally seemed to show some urgency, and managed some probing attacks, but left themselves open when good defence yielded a counter that started by Jim So. His lobbed pass send Amir to run free towards the goal, who, instead of “shooting like [he] should have” passed the ball to Lee Russell for a tap in goal. Final score: 3-1 for Palace.
After the game, a large gathering made their way to Luga’s where they voted while watching the English premiership (and memorable Arsenal vs Chelsea).  It looked as though Giovanni would take both man and donkey honors, but Lee Russell eventually got Man with 5 votes (Gio with 4), and Giovanni walked away with the Donkey on 6 votes earned primarily for his manful attempts to fit his posterior under the fence at training on Wednesday.
Good Game, Good Goals, Good God get the man some cheesecake

G4: Summer Palace vs Red Cards is on

Ok lads,
Our league match this weekend is confirmed. We are playing Red Cards, at Chaoyang Stadium, this Saturday, kick off6pm, 1800 hours.  Please confirm availability by Thursday afternoon.
Red Cards always give their best shot against us, so it is sure to be a competitive match.
I especially asked for a late kick off so Amir can shake off his hangover and Lee’s weekly stray cat has time to go home for her milk. Also, it may mean some of the coaches can play?  Actually 6pm is the only free time and even then we are not on our usual pitch, but directly west of the main stadium. Arrive by the same entrance.
I suppose it does mean you can go out on Friday, but don’t end up in hospital. Better still, why don’t you save yourself for an impromptu Palace night out directly after the game. Beer, food, more beer then Lattee… it is Halloween after all.
See you at training tonight and earn your place on the team!
Hit reply now and tell me yes or no …
Get involved!

G5: Summer Palace vs Red Cards

Hi Lads,
It looks like we’ll be playing our league match vs Red Cards this Saturday at Chaoyang Stadium. The exact time is to be confirmed, but this is advance warning.
So don’t make plans for nights out involving Wudaokao, souju, mcdonalds+taxis+hospitals, milk, milf, or whatever other debauchery you may get up to on any other Friday night!!
I will follow up with the team call to arms and more details soon.
Aaron, great match report, but I hope the reference to a certain ‘milf’ was a spelling mistake and not a Freudian slip.
Thanks,
Pikey

G11: Palace vs Red Cards

Palace,We managed another brilliant win last Saturday, as we tamed the Dulwich Lions with a clear 10-0 drubbing. The opposition was not as weak as the final scoreline suggests, as it was only 2-0 at half-time (although the main reason being us missing a lot of chances). But we kept having a go at them right from the start of the 2nd half and were quickly rewarded by scoring an avalanche of goals. At the end, Matt scored 3, Ally (MOM, 2 goals + many assists), Jim So (2), Kieran, Charles and Manuel (1 each). The defence did well too, keeping focussed and a well-deserved clean-sheet. Thanks to that large victory we have now the highest tally of goals scored (42) and the best goal difference (+27) in that league.Next league game is our LAST before the 3-month long winter break. We are playing the Japanese from Red Cards. On current form we should beat them but let’s play the game seriously or we will get a bad result. The game is scheduled for SUNDAY 12th December, kick off for 3PM. Meet at Chaoyang stadium at 2:30PM.Who is available? Please reply ASAP and come to training tomorrow, 8-10PM at the Lido.Cheers,Patrick
