Welldone to all the sides in div 1 and congrats to the top 4, really enjoyed the season both on and off the field lads, good luck in the semis ... @ ademon ... See you next week mate unfortunately it will still be from the sideline ... We do have 5 other players back though, so should be a more even contest than today. Gotta go lads here comes nurse David with my morphine... Go the Wallabies... No nurse David we are not watching Bold and beautiful ....lol
Ville where are your 5 other players coming from for this week? lets hope throwing the weekends game doesnt come back to bite you this weekend, good luck to the 4 left standing. my tip blacks vs blacks gf with castle hill to take it by 1 in a high scoring encounter.
@ gcunited - to say that we threw the game is not in the good banter/spirit of this forum and that's not the way we roll....not the South Australian way - will take it in good faith though that you were jumping on the humour wagon and trying to catch flathead with chicken:) - @ cream help a brother out mate!
.... Gotta go, here comes nurse David with my sponge bath
No humour intended mate just reading back through all the posts on this topic seems a 6-1 scoreline against greystanes a few weeks back had ville not wanting to meet them at finals time. 1 would hope no team would throw a game but things like this do take place unfortunatly. good luck sat anyway mate
gc - never fear you are not funny whichever way I look at your posts. KV Wht showed up with 7-8 players yesterday to give all teams a chance at 4th place - good on em!. They have been up front with players available over the last few weeks and have shown up when others might not have....
A little bit of result trivia...
Whites v Greystanes (cause you mentioned it) R1 Won 4-0, R8 Won 2-0, R15 Lost 1-6 I'm concerned now that maybe you're right....did the whites throw round 15 to try and get the Greys in?
Whites v Toonie (cause you implied they threw this game) R4 Lost 1-4, R11 Won 2- 0, R18 Lost 1-3 As a general "throwing a game" rule....do it against teams that don't have the wood on you!
If that was a team throwing the game I must have been at another game. The whites started with and around mid 1st half had 10. Toonie had 12 and lost 1 mid 1st half leaving bare 11. Luckily we scored 2 very early otherwise the point needed could have been at risk.
This game didn't cost greystanes a top 4 spot, their poor start to the season did. All teams that finished above greystanes beat them during the season.
Both kellyvile wht and tongabbie are happy with their achievement this year coming from 2nd div.
Sorry my mistake i thought i read posts from both ville and toonie stating greystanes smashed them both with thier full squad and i thought 1 said the best side they had playe. i apolagise for incorrectly reading previous posts. for the record i dont play for any1 in this comp but find it interestting reading and your probably right greystanes cost themselves early on

Dear Ipitombi, Lizaradu, herewego et al... if indeed they are your real names, which I highly doubt given your recent alleged skullduggery at the weekend.
I cannot believe...(I REALLY CANNOT BELIEVE) that you threw the game on Saturday against Toony. We were by far the worst team you played all season and you had the perfect opportunity last weekend to throw our game and potentially face us in the semis. Instead you turned up with 10 men and had the audacity to play out of your skin and beat us.
I demand the return of the 5 cases of so called beer that you were sweetened with, and I demand you are all drug tested given recent evidence that it is a performance enhancing drug.
@ GC - morphine has worn off - if you going to add your 2cents at least make it funny - we set a high standard on this forum with a sense of humour a prerequisite! ...you lucky we don't set Stan or Notso on you!!
Winning WAB2 was our semi and coming from 3-0 down to draw with the CHU blacks 3-3 was our final. In saying that we are going to give it our all to try and make the GF - unfortunately mois out with Appendix op and herewego in UK - hopefully our fit 10 and wounded 3 will do the job on Saturday.
@ RSC - Sorry mate only 9 castles left - Ipi doing everything he can to try and be fit for Saturday...I miss nurse David
Good evening all London time, what a difference 48 hours makes........
Firstly congrats to the top 4 and deepest apologies to fellow Villians that I could not be there on Sat to assist our depleted team...but we have at least achieved our desired objective of a 19 game season...anything more is a bonus...
@gcu I assume your postings are based on reliable sources, namely Wikileaks....it appears my 'Over 35 Shades of Red & Black' manuscript has gone missing in transit and the final 2 chapters have been leaked. Namely the chapter on Fourplay which describes the semi final series and the chapter on Climax being the grandfinal match. Can I say from the outset that the story is purely fictional and does not depict any actual person, team or event and any resemblance to real persons (alive or dead), teams or games is purely coincidental. It appears my refererence to Tanking in the novel has been literally applied when in fact it is intended to be a mere euphemism for team bonding and self indulgence. Perhaps that's wherein lies the confusion and the spurious claims and allegations alluded to by our latest forumite. I will make a visit to the Ecuadorian Embassy tomorrow to clarify all issues and perhaps a rewrite of the final 2 chapters is now in order, more will be revealed in the coming weeks..... good luck to all teams next week and best wishes to Ipi for a speedy recovery from the haemorrhoids op. :-)
Lads, can confirm that KV Whites didn't throw the match, it sure as hell didn't feel like it at 2-1 when they scored a cracker!
No doubt they will be stronger next week, but so will we. We finished with 11 on Saturday, we aren't crying about it, but we will definitely be stronger next time around.
To the teams who's season ended last Saturday, thanks for an enjoyable comp. Every weekend, we got a bloody hard game, and we are proud to have pipped you to the final semi spot, because there are quality teams below us on the table.
So Toonie go on, we will fly the flag for the clubs south of Old Windsor Road :-)
I reckon it will be a Black v Black GF, but football is a funny game........just take some of the refereeing at Girraween on Saturday as an example!
i put greystanes' failure to reach the finals down to one significant factor - the fluorescent pink change strip we had to wear against toongabbie in our home match. we dominated that game, but every time it came time to pull the trigger in front of goals, we were blinded by the sight of each other and ended up losing to a toongabbie penalty. a different result in that game would have changed everything.
was good to have something closer to a full collection of teams after the 6 team comp of last year. to those teams who came up from div 2 - see, the black teams of this comp are very good, but aren't quite as scary as they look from div 2! hopefully all teams will be back next season, along with a couple more from this year's div 2. even dundas - from what i saw of them, the main thing they missed this season was a great 'keeper - if they can pick one up in the off season, they should be back better next season.
Devastating news that Brownstains have missed the top four. Karma has a funny way of squaring up but thankfully the football gods believe that any side who try spineless tactics of deception and dishonesty shall have no place in finals. Look on the bright side of it boys,at least your last game of this year was not your usual pasting from the mighty Chutahs. Ha ha, cheats never prosper.
good to see you surface for your annual greystanes bash, archer, though you've left it a bit late this year. did you lose an under 10s grand final to greystanes that you still haven't got over or something?
as to this greystanes squad cheating, i don't remember us ever doing so or even being accused of doing so. would be interested to find out what you could be referring to.
