so now the conspiracy theorists can come out - will the white villians throw some points next week against toonie in order to not have to face stanes in the semis, who have recently drubbed them? or will the black villains, with the minor premiership in hand, field an O55s squad against lidcome so their clubmates can face someone in the semis they think they might be able to beat?
of course, the dunnies are also now on a roll and could definitely have their own say in matters.
Cheers rightside (more than happy for you to expand on my tap in.....wouldn't want to make this all about me!)
re-framing the market (as I type) for fourth....tough with teams "resting" players etc A side note - I found it a little curious last night that I got a call from a guy who knows a guy who once spoke to guy from Carlingford..... looking to take the 10/1 for the Greys.... (looked back and also saw a FGP from CH that snapped up odds for them to win it)
Stan and The Captain will never achieve Oko status.
I'm not the sort to get caught up in the hype but those calling it goal of the season seemed serious and the bloke over for a holiday from some European country who was shaking his head saying he'd never seen a goal of that high a quality really did seem to know a thing a two?!

Ok cream I will indulge you... The ball was was crossed and found cream beyond the far post, not far from the byline and where the six yard box crosses it.. Between him and the goal was a defender... Controlled the ball with his weaker foot, and skipped round a defender in almost the same move, then brought it back inside and chipped it past the keeper, maybe just off the underside of the bar... Makes up for that sitter you butchered in the same goal a few weeks before......
With the Olympics coming to a close, time to reflect on team performances:
Kellyville Black, the Michael Phelps of the comp with gold,gold,gold....well done guys Castle Hill Black, unable to emulate the Usain Bolt double double, but in true oz style brought home another silver, another good effort Ville Whites, just like the Chinese women swimmers or weightlifters exceeded all expectations and now awaiting A & B test results on their Castle laced urine samples to confirm bronze medal position Lidcombe, Toonie, Castle whites and Greys still hold hope in repechage for final 4th place. Lidcombe suffering from Steve Hooker ''yips"despite early season claims of gold in the heights of div 1. Their consolation is the anticipated performance of wonder boy band at closing ceremony since going AWOL midseason. Apparently Ville whites have requested tapes of the early rounds of Badminton so they can devise ways of selecting their semi final opponents without being obvious in their round 18 game. Finally, Dunnies, sorry fellas good bunch of blokes and despite some late season form, just like Muhammad Ali's appearance at opening ceremony, it was nice but not sure why they were there :-)
@ herewego - lol - brilliant mate - you have missed your calling - going to miss you in the semi mate - have a safe trip. @ cream - congrats on the minor prem - a little bird told me your goal was a screamer ...and your reaction was even louder...lol
We only had 10 on Saturday but the lads fought hard as CHW through everything at us - well as much as they had as they looked thin on numbers as well - 13 I think.
The conspiracies have already started. Bottom line is KV Whites have only got 8 starters this Saturday due to injuries, herewego leaving for the UK and Marsbar in Perth for a week. That leaves us with 8 from the ten that played on Saturday including LM who had to go in goals with 20 to go due to Hammie strain. So to the other 3 teams vying for 4th we will do our best with 8 to keep Toonie out!! Sad but true!!!!
Cheers and once again congrats to our blacks on winning the minor prem - hopefully see you guys at WAB4...

Heard this a thousand times, only 8 players this weekend. Hope it isnt true as we need to compete against a full strength side to deserve our spot.
Ipi are your seriously playing with only 8 or hoping a few others might be able to play? No excuses on Saturday, we had 3 subs and still culdnt put that bloody ball into the back off the net. Poor choices in the final third was our downfall.
@ ademon - jokes a side mate - at this stage we have 7 - hoping to have 8. we had a squad of 15 - Bazza left 2 months ago for states, herewego leaves Thursday for UK for 3 weeks - will be back in time for GF if by some fairytale we make it, marsbar in Perth & back next week, LB in Turkey and also back next week, throw in 2 dodgy Hamstrings and a cracked rib and we are depleted mate. RSC will vouch that we only had 10 Saturday and had to swop LM with keeper with 20 to go. Hoping the 2 with dodgy Hammies are good to go Saturday as they have not played in weeks and need a run before next weeks semi, best case scenario is we have 9 - at this stage we have 7 - sad but true!!!

Much to our great surprise kv white actually did have 10 on sat, (but they played like team that had the extra man....) plus he is right about the injuries and people going overseas I believe, or so the spies are feeling me.
But take no prisoners ademon, they will not lie down, and grab the best chance you will have of making the semis. If you make it you will deserve it don't worry, no complaints here. A season is over 18 games, and if you come 4th look back at that night game early in the season when the ref gave you that little present and think of us!! The gods have conspired to give us our fair share of second and third chances but we were not good enough to take them. Stanes will win so you will need a point. Lidcombe are gone.
We are currently in negotiations with our blacks though... A 15 0 win may see us through.... We are trying to come to an agreement of how many Castle lagers to give. We offered 5 cases but they counter offered with 1. However that line of negotiations has stalled. Supplies of castle have dried up in the kellyville region. Apparantly some bloke has bought up all the stocks, claiming it is a magic elixir. The story goes he took one sip of it and it transformed him into a sort of footballing Demi god!
Well considering the result...a sip each week for the next few weeks may well be worth it?!
Now all who know me know I'm not the sort to blow my own trumpet....but this is taken from the KV Match Report and I think Rightside might have underplayed the goal a touch....
The sealer came with ten to go...
The ball got whipped in from the right to the near post. A defender lunged at the ball clearing it away from goal but only getting enough contact to send it just out beyond the six yard box near the byline. Cream was first to the loose ball, spinning on the ball to face the defender. As the Kolts lined up looking for square balls and cutbacks, the impossible seemed possible to Cream so.........
......the sublime skills of years of futsal, the vision, the gaule and the ego combined to perfection! As the defender came out, Cream dipped the left shoulder, shifting the defender’s weight, the left foot rolled across the top of the ball, heading towards the byline - a 15 cm gap enough for Cream to finess the ball with the outside of his left through.....a feather touch with the right boot as he looked at the many options inside, allowing his ego to refuse to pass aiming instead to complete the original vision he had of him scoring from an impossible position (the kind of arrogance Notworthy and the little Italian would be proud of!). Defenders scrambling to the goal line were set to cover the square ball, one on either post and a keeper and defender covering the centre of the goal....never expecting that Cream would put the whole move together....spin, dummy, roll, dribble and a shot from a couple of metres outside the post - they were wrong (yes I know they would normally be right, but this is my story!) The only option was a centimetre perfect drive into the roof of the net - delivered with precision and power ...AAAAWWEESSOOMMEE!!!!!! ;D
Talk about cruel football gods....looks like ville down to 7 this Saturday as Ipi types this post from Norwest hospital thanks to a ruptured appendix, will do everything I can to play next week, pouring some Castle lager into the wound might do the trick, good luck to the magnificent 7 ....cheers enjoy lads
