Daniel is one team selector with 3 votes. Ray has only 2 votes, but he can be the other team selector. I'll discuss line ups with them.
Line ups to follow.
On the "Line ups" group chat, Ray was concerned that if we had Daniel, Sean and friends on one team, his team would be "whacked". Daniel and Ray asked me to suggest. As they are both relatively inexperienced at team selection, I made a suggestion, but made it clear to them the final say was theirs. They decided to go with my suggestion, and agreed on colours. As posted on the main group chat at 6.01 pm:
Reds: Jeff, Ray, Sean, Nazriee, Soon Leong, Alex F, Thommy Whites: Derian, Jessen, Daniel, Gow, Marcus, Song Chuan, Stuart
After the game, please post reports and comments on the game below.
Many calls for "imbalanced" were heard before the game from both sides - comparisons were being made for speeds, touches, sizes and even hangovers from the day before.
Game got going after the thrash talk was done and Stuart's brilliant left foot made the game 1-1, scoring at both ends. Gow then accidentally squeezed a free kick in goal for whites and spurred them on to get up to 4-2, with some brilliant inter-play between Stuart and Marcus throughout.
Reds hit on many counter attacks with the speed of Soon Leong and Ray at the top while Sean and Jeff tirelessly worked from the back and middle. Nazriee saved Derian's audacious shot with his fingertips which boosted their morale and got back to 4-4.
But that was to be the end of the see-saw as Stuart and Marcus threw their weight in attack and terrorised the red's defence. Song Chuan and Jessen were there to pick up the loose ends until both fought to stay in goal while going up 7-4.
Whistle was blown and last goal called, daniel wrapped it up with his drunken accuracy and final score 8-4 to whites.
