You gotta understand the mind set of the OLE.
These guys are just out to have fun, win or lose.
And yes, we were short on saturday.
We had a 45+ year old player coach on left back and the back-up keeper in net.
I have never met a player from the Ole, therefore I know nothing about them. I don't know what the circumstances were but I do know that they were short players. Either way, that team will no longer be affiliated with the Club, if anything like that happens again. Simple as that.
The "socceroos" did have a full team. Metro Ford United players consist of Div 1 calibre that aren't able to train twice a week due to work commitments, etc. This is the first season for us at this level, but we hope our competition improves.
The season has already become boring after we went up 6-0 after 20 minutes. Being a defender is even worse! We aren't able to get promoted out of Div 3 unless the Metro Ford Lions finish last in Div 2. But I don't see that happening. Hopefully the league will notice this and put us in Div. 2 A or B next year.
I must give Club Ireland credit. They came ready to play, as we didn't. 12 players showed up for us, and Uncle Buck (Paul Segovia) in goal. That should say it all! Supposedly Club Ireland brought down some players from Div.1 and 2? Nontheless, the game was the most exciting we've had all season. The field was crap though! Tiny, and as soft as one of Jinky's tackles!
You where able to purchase it at a store a few years back called "Boardwalk Games." There is also a store in Gastown that sells puzzles and games that might have it too. I'm not sure what it's called though. Best place is online though. Do you play?
I was the calm, collective centre back (#5) that never gave the ball away. Where you playing? What position where you? I don't see why you guys have been losing so much. You are one of the better teams we've played against all year. Have you been making changes?
