7 aside is very tough, especially when the standard was as high as yesterday. It was good to see the same core of guys playing again and long may it continue as it is becoming a really enjoyable game with everyone getting used to each other's style! Damian opted to go in goal a lot having just landed from a 20 hour flight and made a number of really good saves, as did Paul for the reds. Very open game which could have seen both team reach double figures had it not been for excellent keeping. Darren and Simon vs Kydde and Anthony was a really good battle in the middle and obviously very good passing and control until at the end a few knocks and injuries meant that reads were playing with 6.5 men and whites could overrun them, coming from 2-1 down to win 4-2. Special mention to Karthi for a great dribble round 3 or 4 players before squaring back round the keeper for a tap into an empty net. Great game and looking forward to next week!
Thanks for the compliments Jon but I think Paul shd be banned from being goalie! Not sure how many goal bound shots and 1 on 1's he stopped and blocked etc etc.... I have to admit it was a really tiring game and with 7 on a hot Sun afternoon, kudos to the team for playing 15 mins after 5
Really like having Anthony in the team esp on such occasions, when others start to flag into the 40th min or so, he suddenly finds a pair of extra legs and goes into overdrive and also Kydd with ability to bring the ball out of defence and attakc with his cannon shots! Wouldn't like to be a goalie against him. Imran played a very good defense cutting out most of dangerman Karthi's runs and dribbles while newcomers, Ian and Jonny's runs caused many heartattacks for White def. Jon was also on the end of many a slick move between Anthony and Kydd and scored too!
I still like the Sun pm matches too Hope it comes back.
