Imran SMSed to say he has a dinner to attend. I was busy so I was trying to find replacements in between doing other stuff. Rajseran offered not to play to leave it at 4-a-side. I finally lined up a player from The Cage. It might be too late for Rajseran though.
If it's 4-a-side, someone from Whites will need to switch to Blacks.
We managed to borrow two players from The Cage, and so the game went ahead 4 vs 4.
It was actually a good, high scoring game in the end. It was also fairly close throughout and I'm not actually sure which team won in the end.
The disappointing thing about the players who dropped out because they didn't want to play 4 vs 4 is that, had they turned up, or even stayed around after turning up, we would have had 5 vs 5 after all. By dropping out within the last ten minutes before k.o. simply because the numbers were down was not helpful to those who made the effort to turn up, and it also cost us each an extra 5 bucks!
sorry guys i would have turn up if we could have got another replacement for Imran . I was waiting for the replacement but by the time i got the sms from Rajiv , it was already 20.25 pm and by the time i get there would have been 21.15pm not forgetting i had to change and i am leaving in the west .
I also understand that 4 aside was a norm therefore sacrifice myself so that we dont end up having 5 vs 4 with some other rules where you cant score outside the box.
Hurt me with the Truth but Never Comfort me with a Lie
