Insufficient votes for team selectors. Jon and Isaac would be team captains in any event, but since they know the players better than I do, they can decide on line ups as well, so they are team team selectors.
Line ups to follow.

Kien, Gerard, kah boon, simon, Isaac, Danny, Eddie, Edmund
Scorers: 1-0: Kah Boon (with his right foot!) 1-1: Manish (long range shot) 2-1: Eddy (from the right, just outside the box) 3-1: Edmund (from the right, just outside the box) 4-1: Gerard (flowing passing from right to left, with Simon feeding the ball to Gerard) 4-2: Manish (long range shot) 5-2: Gerard (with a header from a corner taken by Isaac) 5-3: Manish or Jon? I can't remember. 5-4: Manish or Job? I can't remember. 6-4: Header by Edmund 6-5: ? 7-5: I think it was Gerard on the counter attack. 7-6: ?
This was a game if you had bet on Ladbrokes, your heart would have had an attack. Reds had more chances, but didn't take them and whites rode their luck.
Score was 7-5 to Whites after Reds spent the last 5 mins chasing the last ball/goal to equalise but ended up succumbing to the inevitable counter-attack.
Credit to Whites for taking the game to us. We had our fair share of chances which we inexplicably failed to convert, whereas the first 4 goals from Whites were just shots that went in as soon as they were taken without any challenge. Seems like the pre-game Banter on Gerard as Suarez ended accurate
Ants had a pulled hamstring at the start of the game so was somewhat handcapped and I had a calf injury which kept me in goal.....Calvin had the best game since he started at Turf City! He played well in Defence and had a few shots at the Whites goal when playing wing...i think he might even have scored 1 of our goals? Shaiful kept our constantly changing defence tactically sound but we had trouble with the trio of newcomers Eddy and Edmund who paired up well with Gerard instinctively. The young-uns settled in quickly to the Giffa play system and were quite fluid in attacking positions....Youth! How I miss that! Revel in it guys as it passes all too quickly.....sighhhh
