Whites went into the game full of confidence, neglecting to talk tactics but instead chose to chat about the World Cup. It proved costly as Reds took control from the start and never looked back. Never mind that Whites welcomed back players who were returning from injury or a long break, they were venturing into the ‘dark’ side whenever they were attacking. That is the approved excuse for missing a gazillion chances in front of goal (actually, all the players in White are blind, except Melvin). To cut it short, Reds were the more organised, better structured and took their chances to come up victors tonight.
On the side, I second Rai’s suggestion to stop playing at ECP until they fix the lights. Even though it is brighter without the paddings, the far end of the pitch is really dark without the overhead lights.

I thought on paper it looks very much balanced in terms on the lineup. Didn't expect such a lopsided win.
Game started with everyone arriving on time, Reds started the scoring with me finishing off a nice pass from Tim. 2nd and 3rd goal soon cane courtesy of me again. The reds were 3-0. Whites started to organize themselves and pulled one back through Gilbert's long range shot which deflated off Boon. Whites had numerous chances to get back into the game as the Reds defence were pretty disorganized but Whites did not take their chances and the Reds capitalize on it and hit them on the counter with great effect. Sean, Rai and Hafidz went on to score 2 each and Tim added another as well.
I thought the main difference is the Reds were more clinical in their finishing while the Whites were pretty wasteful. It might have to do with the lightings on the whites goal, as it was very dark and they could hardly see their goal posts.
This is the first time that I have scored 3 in a Giffa game, probably helps to explain the lopsided Scoreline too.
Apologies to Gilbert and the whites for the lineups.
