Awful, truly awful.By: Tom B | December 22nd, 2009
So for the match against Creteil, I opted for the same side as last time, looking to reward them for their fine work.
10 Mins in, disaster. Their right back cleared a long ball forward, which was bouncing harmlessly to my Jules Vanni, my keeper. He had a brain freeze (a la Mad Jens) running out of his box and heading straight to one of their players, who chipped him with ease. I wasn’t having any effect on the game, and further disaster struck on 27 mins where I left their striker with too much space 22 yards from goal and he smashed a strike into the bottom corner. I switched to a diamond just before half time, and matched them for a bit.
I tinkered and I tweaked, but today was not my day. Sodden, in my suit on the touchline, they rifled in a free kick in the 57th minute. I then lost turtle man Denga to injury for 3 months (after making my 3 subs) so was playing a 441 diamond with Tony Patrao as a target man. We were awful, so I yelled at them after the match.
Argh, oh well, there’s always next week.
