Whites: Elvin, Look Liew, Ganesh, Lung, Rockstar, Vincent YKL, Cheng Poh, Azmi Reds: Tim T, Yip Weng, Damian, Sivaraj, Wing Kong, Pritish, Arijit, Edmund
When everyone was on the pitch , It was a reflection of Whites versus what we were probably 10 years back . LOL Amaresh happen to come and played for awhile before Sivaraj came in . Both Amaresh and Pritish took turns to play .
Game started slow with Reds having good counter and Whites tactically were playing lots of passings but had hard time to penetrate . Elvin was marked by at least 2-3 players most of the time .
Reds had an early lead with Pritish having his first start and first goal followed by Tim T i think scoring the second goal . Whites had to do some changes at that time with Azmi in Goal and LL playing left defends with Rockstar centre defends and Lung Right Defends. Ganesh , Chengpoh and Elvin helping out in midfield with Vincent playing lone striker .
Thanks to Elvin with his superb long shots and excellent Passes by LL ( think LL had his best game ever ) , Whites bounced back to 3-2 . I was somehow surprised that we could score 3 as reds defends were basically camping in the D most of the time .
Sivaraj , Wing Kong , Pritish all came very close in scoring but some good blocks by the defends ensure that the scoreline remains .
This is one of the best game to remember and a great comeback by the Veterans .
Never too old to play soccer and today we could see the Whites just never gave up and had so much energy and Stamina especially both Vincent and LL (suspected of having Viagra before match) .
...yup...juz managed to shove V-rod back under covers......... WingKong scored REDs'2nd goal w an explosive toed-in volley .....and the grand old classy poacher Elvin hatricked in style to lock in a WHITEs' victory......
Had to work really hard to find the space, i have to say. Always got someone at my back......if its not Wing Kong, Arjit, then its Edmund or Damian......at times it felt like the whole d was on me. Damn!
Even with the whole D on Elvin, he could still score hattrick?@!! WTF!? We shd never ever give Elvin any space even to move his toe if we are on opposing team!! Lesson Learnt!!
I have to say all 3 goals were good ones. THe first a Rocket from outside which I could only watch shoot past me, the 2nd and 3rd classic Elvin specials with LL specials crosses from the right wing. Actually i almost half believe Raj's assertion that LL was on the V!! LOL
Though it was a low scoring game, it was an enjoyable one. Reds let their lead slip but only because of the tenacity of Whites.
Eh we were not that young lah...look at me Me and Arijit. Amaresh did have an ankle injury but i was afraid that Jiv would not be able to get a replacement so late in the day so I asked him to turn up to play goalie just in case. Turns out that it was not necessary and Pritish was nice enough to rotate with him since he was there.......both 19 i think.
Moral of story is to stick tight to Elvin. Elvin will wiggle left, wiggle right with head down, on the 3 occasions he scored we gave him that extra bit of space, he only needs a half chance to punish you. Later in game, reds camped in own half like what rockstar said coz i think we all realised elvin was too slippery we needed more than 1 marker. In the end, elvin still beat all 3 defenders lol, me included
Pritish is an excellent player with touch, vision and time on the ball.
I agree with rockstar whites played remarkably well with great teamwork. I did not see exactly which whites player it was but i kept hearing an orgasmic yes yes whenever whites scored haha that was quite amusing
