Eight is not Enough

Eight nil after 10 minutes, and the MoFo looked to be cruising. Jamon was giving it large ones, as some piss poor goal keeping by a certain cephlapod, looked to have gifted the JMF an easy victory. But the eight limbed one was not going to be between the sticks all night, and as his shift ended, the goal tide was stemmed. Could a seemingly insurmountable lead be over turned? Slowly the Righteous began the arduous journey back to parity. Youg Gaz and Crespo found their shooting boots, and Big Phil proved a more formidable defender than goalie. The game finally turned after a fiery interlude saw two hotly disputed goals disallowed, and then a penalty went to the JMF. Tempers were high, and perhaps Dead Eye should have allowed time for his blood to cease boiling, as his rushed spot kick was well saved by Gaz. Within minutes the score was all square, but surprisingly, the MoFo found some hidden reserves, and once again went ahead. But the Righteous were not to be denied, and with time ticking down, and after chasing the game from the first seconds, finally took the lead. But Young Dan struck at the death to spare the JMF the ignominy of falling prey to the Woods greatest come back. An epic encounter finally ended in stalemate.

Dolphin v Octopus
The Octopous put in a fair old shift, fighting for every ball, and it could be argued was a contender for man of the match. If it wasn't for his goal keeping. Take away his first stint between the sticks, and the boys in white would have strolled to an eight goal victory. On the other hand The Dolphin was an integral component of his team. He even saved a couple of shots with Dorsal Fin (hands). So our flippered friend takes this weeks honours.

Moment of Match
A game packed with incidents, from start to finish, makes it hard to pick one out. But Dead Eye's proper Paddy over his penalty was Jamonesque. He shouted and cursed about the unfairness of it all accusing all and sundry of being a set of cheating twats, even though we all could see that it was a stone cold pen. Perhaps it was the effort expended on his tirade that resulted in the usually clinical fella failing to find the back of the net
