I've added the team selector poll. A mix of players today, so I've included in the poll both regulars who have started playing regularly at Khalsa as well as Khalsa regulars. If the two team selectors tell me they are not familiar with the other players, I will discuss the players with them in a separate WhatsApp group chat.

The game saw an exodus of ECP players to the possibly a new hallowed turf of khalsa where some claim to be much better than the ever functional ECP pitch. I guess the only two khalsa regulars yesterday were Gerard and Alvin.
The Reds had a team of ball players which made captain mel from whites to give instructions for the whites to play a bit more defensive at the start and try to absorb the red's attack and hit on the counters using the speed from james and himself. The team traded blows with each other and goals went passed. It was a tight game and the difference for both team was playing and adapting with the "new" players and adjusting to their playing styles. Reds took the initiatives to pulled forward and went 2 goals up midway through the game.
Whites kept their heads up and in the last 20 mins totally dominated the game. The whites kept it tight in the middle, worked hard and got the equalizer. Whites took advantage that there weren't any natural defenders in the Red's side besides Alvin. With the white's defense settling and hail was giving commands from the back and then while he was in goals, whites got the last wind and went a few goals up. Final score was 9-6 or 9-7, with a few goals coming from Mel and James from the whites and Suffian and combi of gerrard/kelvin for the Reds.
A good short passing and movement most of the games that some arsenal fans might be proud of from both sides and I think the differentiating factor was stamina at the end and settling on some form of shape of the team.
Great workout on a cloudy night with Khalsa looking like the hangout area at ECP next to the 100plus freezer after the game. Till next time.
