I'll start with the team lineup since it was or maybe still is the talk of the town these days. For sure, last night team lineup was as balance as the "scale of justice". Both teams were evenly matched when both team had 7 people on each side.
Whites worked the flanks pretty well and it was to no surprise that their goal came from a break by Alex down the right and squaring it for an easy tap in. Reds then pegged them and this pattern were pretty consistent till the score was about 4 a piece.
Reds might had surged with a couple more goals but white's keeper had other ideas. Saving many efforts especially from Mark who usually would put them off blind-folded.
Unfortunately, one of whites player pulled a hamstring according to word on the street (did not see any updates on the pysioroom.com ) - I think it is Lloyd when it was 4-4.
Reds took advantage of that and scored a couple more before everyone called it a night. Whites can take the fact that they burned more calories and will be able to enjoy more christmas pigging in.
That's all folks - see you when I see you.
p.s. Jamil put a couple of fantastic goals beating the inspired white keepers.
I wasn't expecting any more, but Jamil and Yaseen can play, so we're back to 14. Revised line ups:
Whites: Mark T, William, Boon Yick, Kelvin Lee, Alex F, Lloyd, Yaseen Reds: Song Chuan, Jeff S, Tim C, Chen Hong, Khee Sheng, Reuters, Jamil
I trust Yaseen will pay as usual for himself and Jamil.
It slipped my mind that Mark had SMSed earlier to ask to be on Reds as he only had a red top. As Jeff reports that he did in fact play for Reds, someone must have swapped to Whites. Anyone know who it was?
I've always had Yaseen and Jamil on the same team. When Yaseen and Jamil came in after I put up the line ups for 6-a-side, I asked Yaseen if they wanted to be on the same side or whether just puttng one in each team would be ok. Yaseen said it was ok to have them on separate sides. I put Yaseen on Whites, where there were more players he was familiar with, and Jamil on Reds. However, whichever side I put Jamil on, that side would have more attackers and fewer defenders, so I switched Chen Hong to Reds and Lloyd to Whites so that both sides would have a balance between attackers and defenders. Mark T switching with Chen Hong kind of switched the balance back.
