Downward Spiral Continues

This will have to be quick, as I need to get some shut eye before I embark on my American sojourn, but the title kind of gives the give away. Our early season hubris is now beginning to haunt us, as we have hit a poor run of form. Due to substitutions, the evil JMF did field a stronger side, but they weren't as good as the score line suggests. They won by a clear six goals, and barring a mini revival that got us within three, there was nary a doubt about the ultimate victors. Don't get me wrong, they outplayed us in every department, but the fact is, barring Shotgun who had a good game, our team sucked. We just didn't show up, and even worse, we threw the towel in. Can we turn this current malaise around? I am missing now for three games, so hopefully a change in personnel will help, although I hope not, as that would indicate that I am the weak link. On this occasion though, I am willing to take a hit to my ego, as we sorely need to get back into the running.

Moment of Match
A nicely worked goal, which Dead Eye was the architect of. He saw of a challenge by Euro Bri, and took of down the wing, before squaring a beautiful pass into the path of a striker who tapped in. Shame it was Clogs, who plays for the Righteous. Shame that it didn't really matter in the end up.

JMF- Dribbling Dan, Luclear War, Dead Eye, Padawan and King Dave

EURO E- Euro Bri, Clogs, Big Phil the Octopus, Dr Shotgun and Crespo

2011 Season
