We had a good game today and I believe both sides enjoyed .
Reds started off with some good attacking but was whites that scored first and added a second to make it 2-0 . Reds came back and scored 1 before whites scored another one to make it 3-1.
By then whites was pushing for the 4th one and left some space for the Reds to counter - 3-2 ,3-3 , 4-3 , 5-3 , 6-3 ( a superb bicycle kick by lynz ) . Believe all the Reds defense managed to get a goal each to their names - Arjit , Raj , Richard - not sure if CH scored too .
Final score 7-4 to the Reds . Good game and reds passes today made the difference and good come back .
Raj you forgot the most important goal i.e. Jye stretching and tearing his hymen (just joking) to score from 2cm out. I agree was a very enjoyable game. Whites really made Reds work hard for the win but Reds won the day with better teamwork and passing. The game was locked at 3-3 for the longest time and that 4th goal which both teams pushed really hard for was crucial. Ball credit goes to Jye. See you all next week.
Players are expected to be adaptable. As the games are also meant to be social, there should also be a large degree of flexibility and accommodation in how any particular player is deployed. A player's preference should be taken into consideration, but more importantly, his capabilities. It is also important to know if a player prefers to be on the left, right or down the middle. Asking a naturally left sided player to play on the right side is like trying to squeeze a square peg into a round hole, unless the intention is for the left sided player to regularly cut in from the right. There's also no point having a player who can't tackle in the centre of defence, or a 50 year old cover an entire wing. Although players should be adaptable, and may be able to develop new skills and abilities or re-discover old ones over time, it's not going to happen overnight.
At a certain age, and taking into consideration other factors such as build, half a metre in front could still be half a metre too far.
