looks like winston hills have all their players back from holidays etc. good to see them get off the mark with a close win over parra city.
there are some close match ups next round with 7v8, 3v6, 4v5 and my match of the round 1v2.
one thing is for certain, this weekend will give some teams a chance to jump some spots on the ladder.
Both Baulko and Pendle Hill have beaten CHU 1-0 in the last 2 games, so I will be looking forward to their clash on Saturday. I'd love to hear from CHU on their thoughts on the upcoming game. Should be a cracker of a game. Lets hope both teams are injury free and ready to go.

Another hard week for Pendo this week with the match of the round again against Baulko but i tell you what maybe Parra City and CH Utd could be the match of the round with these 2 teams out to prove a point letting us know they still want to be in the top 4.
Come on Curveball selecting the home team for a win, i thought at least you could've sat on the fence for this game with Pendo and Baulko. Why can't you make a tip for your game Curveball do you something we don't
Anyway here are my tips.
Stanes vs Dunnies, i'm leaning towards dunnies by 1 Winsto vs Kolts, both teams could win on there day but sorry i'm goin for draw in this one CH Utd vs Parra City, I know CH Utd are still a good team but Parra City results to date aren't that good, so a win to CH Utd by 2 Baulko vs Pendo, well Baulko coach/ players (some) watched Pendo last game and i reckon the coach had made some notes hoping to get the edge over Pendo. But i find it hard to tip against Pendo. Pendo by 1

we went down 2-1 to Sydney Jnrs today in the Sydney Cup. we were up 1-0 at half time. We were under a lot of pressure second half from a determined Sydney Jnrs and we made two costly errors, both leading to goals.
The boys played a much better game today, yesterdays game was so frustrating.

Diverdan, It's funny how people see a game of soccer. Interesting game between Pendo and Baulko. First 10min i thought Pendo was the better team but then a error by Pendo and then Baulko capitalise on the opportunity with a goal, then again a second goal was scored by Baulko from applying pressure in there defence causing an error and then turning it into an attack on Pendo, it was a good run down the sideline before passing to a forward who only had the keeper to beat. So when you look back it was an even first half but the only difference Baulko was leading 2 nil. Second half saw Baulko putting pressure on Pendo early (tell you the truth Pendo was playing rubbish) and Baulko was unlucky not to go further ahead. Then Pendo recieved a corner and scored. This lifted Pendo a lot and they were putting pressure on Baulko causing them to panic with some of there passing not going to there players. Pendo was attacking just inside the penalty area when there was a slight nudge and a pendo player fell over and a penalty is awarded, which was put away nicely in the corner. The so call Pendo Pride start to show but unfortunately it was a little bit to late in the game but the team was happy to come away with the draw.
So in the end a fair result for both teams. There was some good passing/ positional play by both team at different stages of the game and some not so good. Next round should be a good game as by then both teams would have improved even more (one would think).

Shataraw, welcome to the under 11/ 1's forum. Looking forward to some of your comments
Pendoprincess, Its good to see a Princess on here, it will be interesting to read your comment from royality.
lets hope next time baulko and pendo meet, a good quality ref is assigned to the game...or for that matter any game in division 1...the ref seemed to make his decissions according to what the crowd yelled out ...from both teams!!!

Hardworkisgone, How true, it's incredible how people come out of the woodwork and give praise to one self. The first word i heard from Shataraw on Saturday arvo was i scored 2 goals he did not mention how the team went, until the bubble bust he was then able tell anyone left to listen that the team had a win.
Anyway, Yes were proud of the team so far, just hoping, no praying that they can continue playing positive soccer and achieve a top 4 finish.

Kaiser Chief i hope not. Maybe the Baulko boys not happy with result last week. As I see it both teams had a chance to win but they didn't come through. But all the players did do there best on the day.
Now for this weeks tips
Dunnies vs Winsto, both team could win this won on there day but a draw is my tip. Pendo vs Stanes, Pendo by 2 but in saying that Stanes will ensure they give it all as usual. Kolts vs CH Utd, CH Utd by 2 they do play some good soccer but as you have stated Kaiser Chief hasn't been play well lately. Parra City vs Baulko. interesting game to select but on form Baulko by 2.
Good luck everyone and enjoy. Looking forward to see some more chat on here. Where are your tips Pendoprincess i'll be interested on your selections this week.
