White Rock vs Coyotes...depending on who all shows up for us this will be a different game then the first time around.
BC vs Dynamo 1-3...dynamo fix their finishing problems...bc utd struggle for guys in this weather
Stolo vs Inter game cancelled....or inter beats them 6-0
Young Guns vs Knights..2-1...only cause we need young to drop points. hopefully langley prem 'B' doesnt show up.:rolleyes:
Marga vs Nomads 1-3....nomads shakey defense concedes a garbage goal. nomads get away from kick and run and actually score a few.

I went with Young Guns and Knights, with the thinking the Knights rebound after the last couple weeks of play

White Rock vs Coyotes - Can't see the Coyotes dropping points in this one.
BC vs Dynamo - Like Jimmy said, BC struggling to get guys out right now.
Stolo vs Inter - Inter will crush them, but I'm pretty sure it gets cancelled as well.
Young Guns vs Knights - I want the Knights to win, but based on form it doesn't look like it.
Marga vs Nomads - We could really use another 7-1 scoreline this weekend.

jj, kick n run!? really?

I don't remember many 45 yard punt n hope balls sent up to our forwards, direct forward passing to attackers yes, kick/run no.

MOTW for me is Yotes v WRU. WRU is hard nosed and if a ref "lets them play" it could be a long night for Yotes, although I really thought Scotty was the best player on the park Sat night in our game against you guys, big strong and made some excellent plays... and he's exactly the kinda guy you want in the middle against WRU's stingy 6-2-2

Neither time we've played White Rock have they tried to defend with 6 guys back? Both times they played with 4 defenders, there not bad butgoing on how both teams played against us the Coyotes were much better all around. If the Coyotes have guys and play like they did against us, it shouldn't be close.

They definitely played that way against us, we spent the whole night in their end, but could get anything through. Crossing balls in is tough since they have a very tall team too. I'd definitely like them to play something else next time we play them, that's for sure.

Never once have they played a 6-2-2... I can promise you that... Its called those guys are old and tired, and they stack themselves on the 18 so it looks likea 6-2-2, cause there too lazy to run the field:p

Wow, I'm glad this 6-2-2 thing is gaining traction....no of course they don't play a 6-2-2, it only seemed like that! They do collapse back well and will not make it easy for the Yotes.

Go White Rock Go!

pegleg, you said it, I repeated it.

WRU really did have like 6 back, but it's likely because their central mids just sat 5-7 yards in front of the cb's and anytime possession was gained it was just gumbooted 50+ yards to a winger or forward.

you're right it wasnt exactly kick and run...more so just kick the ball up front and hope someone does something with it, whether it be is21's 30 yard volleys ...or one of the strikers fumble the ball in their feet and we come back at you guys .....remember what you told me last time we played. you would give us a better game...i honestly felt the first time around you guys were much better. defensively sat night you guys were a mess :confused:...and yes Scott was a beast in the middle of the park, but you guys giving him 10 yards almost everytime he had the ball didnt really help your cause. too bad chris wasn't there with him or else it could have been something else :rolleyes:....and i know the game is over and good game and all...but that defender on the outside, lima? needs to learn how to play football, and not american football....i shield the ball in the corner, he two hand shoves me to the ground and then when i get the foul and get back up, the fcuken douche tells me "learn how to play soccer, you div 2 allstar" really?? :rolleyes:........anywho..... whats this 6-2-2 i hear WRU is playing? they didnt play anything close to that the first time around, actually kinda looking forward to seeing it now.....

There's quite a few of the Nomads who do alot of talking, quite alot for a team that's mid pack, and even more for a team that was losing 6-2...
Not aimed at JBN or IS21

This year has been a challenge for us, lost a couple of important players, we're used to being really good, and we're not right now. Then some replacement signings that have come in have gotten hurt, the rest are battling injuries and guys are frustrated. Such as life. We'll get over it.

I think the guys shite talking is just that, shite talking. and a few lopsided losses where we were in the game and then started taking risks to get a shot at 1 point instead of no points doesn't matter to me, we're not in a race for first or to avoid relegation, so goals for and against mean nothing to me.

Langley 2 GEUNFSWCAGFC Knights 1

Nice to get some injured players finally get their season going last night. Cross bar and 2 missed breakaways in the last 15 wont win you a good close game. We seem to play up to our opponent or way down below the bottom teams.

Prediction- we give Inter their only loss and Marga their only win of the season.

Nomads 4 -1 Marga.

Ugly weather, ugly game.

Plus on top of that I might have done my knee with 5 min left. Nomads injury woes continue. Find out how bad it is tom
