Tuesday 1 - 1 Real Esobad
Thanks to those of you who played last night - a good
shift by all concerned. Ended 1 all, with Esobad scoring from a corner
on the stroke of half time, then Gareth scoring a fine free kick for
the Real with ten minutes to go. Special mention to Graeme's brother
in law Scott, who put a great shift in in midfield before being (sort
of) sent off for persistent fouling. He will be welcome in a Real shirt
Thought we did OK - bit disorganised at times, so need to sort that
for next time. Happy to keep taking throws and goal kicks because
I think we play ourselves into trouble at times. Miss wee Craig a
lot. Also need to encourage more shooting!
I asked the guys last night if they wanted a rematch,
and the majority were in favour, however they wanted to leave it for
a while. The consensus was a game in the spring would be best.
Colin was the guy at the back who played beside big Robert at the
centre of defence. He is not a flashy player just got on with it and
was effective. I believe Psycho was booked for swearing at Mr Latto
when he gave an offside decision. Psycho or Zyco (I presume it is
Eastern European for Psycho!) once again came in for a lot of bad
press after the match!
You are correct neither goalkeeper was really challenged, although
both goals were good. Matt would probably take a bit of stick for
letting the free kick in, but it was a good strike from your guy.
I did get a yellow, though he flashed a red at me for
a laugh to start with.
He gave offside when Gormley played me in, Bucko was offside not me
and he wasn't interfering with play, so I stuck the ball in the back
of the net
Should have been a goal and I told him so in no uncertain terms.
||0-1 (half time), 1-1
||Zyco yellowed for swearing at Mr Latto after he made
a call for offside: we were also asked to 'hook' Scott from the
field of play before the ref did it for us!
||Bonner; Fombo, McNie, Proudfoot, Lawson; McCaul, Gormley
(c), McHardy, Couch; Lennox, Stewart
||Hook, Gallagher (unless either or both started?)
