Schedule: Week Of 25 January 2009

Wed 21 January 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

As Franco’s colleagues would like to play again this Sunday before they leave Singapore, I’ll try to put together a session for Sunday, 25 January 2009, 6 to 7 pm 5 to 6 pm, at FICO (Jurong West).

Franco, can you confirm the five you mentioned individually by name? Could you also let me have each of their year of birth for the Contact List? Thanks.

Boris, Yaseen, Qaleel and Zai are all away this weekend, so anyone who is available to play on Sunday evening, how about a one-off trip to Jurong West to see a different part of Singapore?  Franco, if you we don’t have enough players, you might need to find a few more colleagues!

As the preference for the Chinese New Year public holidays next week appears to be to stick with our regular hour, the sessions are as follows:

  • Monday, 26 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, at Sports Planet @ East Coast.
  • Tuesday, 27 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, at Sports Planet @ East Coast.

Please note that they are both at Sports Planet @ East Coast, which is having a special of S$50 per hour.    If there are not enough people by Sunday for two sessions, I will drop the one with fewer confirmations.

The Wednesday and Thursday sessions are as usual:

  • Wednesday, 28 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, at The Cage, Kallang.
  • Thursday, 29 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, at Sports Planet @ East Coast.

Submit your confirmations and any withdrawals below as usual.

I will only send SMSs, and accept SMS confirmations in reply, if a session needs a few more players to go on at all.

  19. rajiv
    Thu 22 January 2009 at 12:12 pm

    Franco, don’t overdo it 🙂 .

    Do you have the names of your 5 colleagues who are playing on Sunday? Boris, Yaseen, Zai and Qaleel are away, while I’m out, so I’m not sure I can get many more for Sunday.

    As Sushil has said he might play if it’s earlier, I’ve changed the booking to 5 to 6 pm.

    Any more of your colleagues would like to play on Sunday? It might be their last chance.

    Current Schedule updated.

    • Sunday, 25 January 2009, 5 to 6 pm, at FICO (Jurong West). I believe we have Franco plus five of his colleagues, but I am still waiting for Franco to confirm. Franco, please let me have the names of your 5 colleagues who are playing on Sunday. If so, we need 4 more. Franco, any more of your colleagues would like to play on Sunday? It might be their last chance to play in Singapore before they leave.

    • Monday, 26 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – 4 places left.

    • Tuesday, 27 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – 6 places left.

    • Wednesday, 28 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, The Cage (Kallang) – 2 places left.

    • Thursday, 29 January 2009, 9 to 10 pm, Sports Planet @ East Coast – 2 places left.

    As lots of people haven’t confirmed yet, we should be able to get 10 for each of the sessions on Monday and Tuesday by Sunday, unless there are a lot of people away, in which case, the session with fewer players may be cancelled.

  25. nethercleft
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 8:57 am

    Wednesday at the cage for me please. And I’ll be a reserve for Monday at East Coast if you need.

    Hi guys

    😦

  32. Joel
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 10:09 am

    Hi Rajiv – can you put me down for Wed and Thurs night next week.
    Thanks
    Joel

  33. rajiv
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 11:20 am

    Current Schedule updated.

    Anyone down for Wednesday or Thursday who can switch to Monday or Tuesday, please do so.

    Please click on the football above for any switching, further confirmations or to withdraw.

    Would there be more players for Monday if it was a morning session?

    If there are still more than 10 players for Wednesday, I will look into having 2 sessions on that day. The second session will be 9 to 10 pm or 10 to 11 pm, depending on availability of a pitch. Please also consider your availability for the later slot.

  34. Kevin
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 11:23 am

    I will gladly switch to a Wed/Thu slot if it is 10 to 11 pm. Thanks.

  35. Manuel
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 12:32 pm

    If Mon was an early monring start, i would be able to make it. But dont change on account of me please…

  36. rajiv
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 4:40 pm

    It looks like we can’t sustain sessions on both Monday and Tuesday (both at Sports Planet @ East Coast). I guess there are quite a few who are away for the Chinese New Year.

    Looking at who are confirmed for Monday and Tuesday, other than Franco and Benjamin who can play both days, everyone else confirmed for Tuesday is only confirmed for that day next week, while everyone else confirmed on Monday is also confirmed for another day next week.

    I propose cancelling the Monday session, and I hope everyone who is down for Monday can also make it on Tuesday. I’ve SMSed the four of you (Bobby, Rajseran, Tom and Yaseen), and only Yaseen has replied to say he can’t make it on Tuesday.

  37. Fri 23 January 2009 at 4:45 pm

    Nope, can’t play Tuesday. Not a problem if you cancel Monday.

  38. rajiv
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 6:46 pm

    Ok, thanks Tom.

    Monday’s session is cancelled.

    Bobby can switch to Tuesday, and John J can play Tuesday too. Joel can switch from Wednesday to Tuesday, and Rob can play Tuesday, so we’re up to 9 for Tuesday.

    We still have 11 for Wednesday so it would be good if any one player could switch to Tuesday.

  39. rajiv
    Fri 23 January 2009 at 8:29 pm

    I suppose everyone’s in holiday mood, so I’ve been forced to use SMSs.

    Sushil and Damian are in for Sunday. 1 place left for Sunday.

    Duncan will switch from Wednesday to Tuesday, and bring a friend, Darren. We have 11 for Tuesday now, and if that remains the case, I’ll have to apply the priority system 🙂 .

    If more players come in for Monday, I can reinstate the Monday session. We need 4 more.

  40. rajiv
    Sat 24 January 2009 at 12:04 pm

    Both Johns can play on Monday, so it looks like Monday is back on.

    Chris can play Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

    We need 2 more for Monday. If anyone can switch from Tuesday or Wednesday to Monday so that we fill Monday up first, that would be good.

  41. rajiv
    Sat 24 January 2009 at 5:20 pm

    Franco and his colleagues have to work on Sunday, so Sunday’s session is cancelled.

    Franco is also out of Monday’s session. I think Monday morning, 10 to 11 am, may be more workable than 9 to 10 pm.

    Those who are already confirmed, and anyone else, up for Monday morning instead? Of those already confirmed for Monday, if you can’t make it in the morning, I already know what other day you can make (if at all), so just bear with me for a while.

    So far, John J, Rajseran, Bobby, Sushil, Chris and Ronak can make it on Monday morning, 10 to 11 am. John S can switch back to Tuesday or Wednesday. Yaseen can’t make it. Tom, Rob?

    If it’s Monday morning, Bobby would prefer 9 to 10 am. How about everyone else who can play Monday morning?

  42. rajiv
    Sat 24 January 2009 at 5:51 pm

    Yaseen has two others, Qaleel and Jams, for Monday night, so Monday’s session will remain at night, 9 to 10 pm. I understand Ronak can make it on Monday night as well.

    Sorry Sushil, no game on Monday morning.

    Luke can play Wednesday.

  43. rajiv
    Mon 26 January 2009 at 11:12 am

    Bobby can’t make it tonight due to a last-minute family engagement. Russell had e-mailed me overnight to say he could play tonight, but by the time I got back to him, he had made other plans.

    1 place left for tonight.

  44. dennis
    Mon 26 January 2009 at 12:11 pm

    ok Rajiv…i will come. must look for a pair of shorts and t shirt tho ha!.. wat colour is on for tonight – text me – thanks – I am off tomorrow…just back for 1 day. thanks.

  45. rajiv
    Mon 26 January 2009 at 12:28 pm

    Welcome back Dennis. I thought you were all ready to play!

    Revised line ups for tonight under Current Schedule.

    Dennis, I’ll SMS you. Your Singapore number is unchanged right?

  46. Mon 26 January 2009 at 6:37 pm

    Jiv, if it’s alright I’ll propose a re-jig of the teams – not for the sake of balance, or winning etc, – but because Yaseen and I work together.

  47. rajiv
    Mon 26 January 2009 at 6:59 pm

    Tom, I don’t see the connection between playing on opposing sides and working together. It’s not like you have to (or even have any reason to) get on any differently after playing on opposing sides than you did before.

    I have no problem with line ups being re-jigged to make them more even if there is a consensus on the part of those playing the session, but if the two highest ranked players (you and Yaseen) end up on the same side, it is likely to affect the balance of the sides, so it will have to go down as an unranked game.

  48. Mon 26 January 2009 at 7:46 pm

    OK Jiv. Fair enough. We’ll stick to the line-ups as stated. Our point is that we’d be likely to be nicer to one another on the pitch.

  49. rajiv
    Mon 26 January 2009 at 7:50 pm

    A bit of friendly competition never hurt anyone, just keep it friendly 🙂 .

  50. rajiv
    Mon 26 January 2009 at 10:47 pm

    I went down to catch up with Dennis and to record a bit of the game.

    Rob didn’t turn up. I called him and he explained that he had been waiting for my e-mail to confirm which sessions he was down for, and that as he hadn’t received any, he hadn’t realised he was down for tonight. I had SMSed him on Saturday and today, but it seems he didn’t have his phone on over the weekend, until tonight. The definite place to check is the blog, but it takes a while for those who are new to get used to that.

    We managed to pick up a player from the Sports Planet staff. As he was wearing red, and Tom had a black top available, Tom swapped over to Blacks, and he joined Reds.

    As there were three unranked players playing, the game in any event goes down as unranked.

  51. Benjamin Yeo
    Tue 27 January 2009 at 10:08 am

    Pls take me out for tonite as I’m down with a bad cold. Thx.

  52. rajiv
    Tue 27 January 2009 at 10:46 am

    Bobby can come in for Benjamin. Tonight’s line ups under Current Schedule.

  53. Chris
    Tue 27 January 2009 at 3:13 pm

    Sorry guys, I am out for tonight. Apologies for the late notice.

  54. rajiv
    Tue 27 January 2009 at 5:00 pm

    Chris and Darren are out of tonight’s game so there are two places left. I can’t get anyone else, so I’ll play, and we’ll have to try to find another player at Sports Planet.

    Rajseran is happy to give up his place for tomorrow so that he plays only twice this week, instead of 3 times, so Chris can come in for him.

    Tom is out injured for Thursday’s game, so Chris can play on Thursday as well.

  55. rajiv
    Tue 27 January 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Duncan has a friend, Axel, who is keen to play, and is available for tonight’s session, so he comes in to take the last place.

    Final line ups under Current Schedule

  56. rajiv
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 7:50 am

    Dennis on Monday night and Ber Luen last night were the only two Chinese players in the sessions over the Chinese New Year holidays public holiday.

    With all the family and social commitments over the Chinese New Year, I was surprised that they played. However, as they are both currently based in Hong Kong, they were keen to play while back in Singapore for the Chinese New Year.

    Ber Luen is also confirmed for tonight, but I think he has found the other commitments while back home are greater than he anticipated, so he has asked if anyone could take his place.

    Accordingly, we have one place left for tonight’s session.

  57. rajiv
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 7:54 am

    Franco, as spoken yesterday evening, the project you are employed on has been extended, so your colleagues are still in Singapore, and may like a game this Sunday.

    If that is the case, I can schedule a game this Sunday, 1 February 2009, from 5 to 6 pm, at FICO.

    Please confirm.

  58. rajiv
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Anyone playing tomorrow night able to switch to tonight?

    Tomorrow’s session is a tough one – 4 of the top 5 players (if Tom hadn’t withdrawn, 5 of the top 7), and only one player outside the top 30 (and even then, only because he is new).

    If I can’t get one more player, I’ll have to ask The Cage to provide us with one more player, which I prefer not to do.

    I’m out of action.

    Anyone available to take Yaseen’s place for tomorrow night? His knee is still giving him trouble.

  59. rajiv
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 5:54 pm

    Everyone seems to have dinner plans for tonight 🙂 .

    I was trying to spare Ber Luen, but since I can’t find anyone else for tonight, he’ll play.

    Tonight’s line ups under Current Schedule.

    Good line ups. I would have liked to have have played if I could.

  60. luke
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 6:39 pm

    I can take yaseens place on thursday.

  61. Ber Luen
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 11:05 pm

    Thanks for organising, great fun in the games I played while back and hope to play again next trip back

  62. rajiv
    Wed 28 January 2009 at 11:27 pm

    Glad you enjoyed yourself Ber Luen, and look forward to seeing you again.

    Andy N or Philipp, if either of you intend to do a match report for tonight’s session by lunchtime tomorrow, please let me know by adding a comment below, otherwise, I’ll put up a bare summary at lunchtime for everyone who played to comment on the session.

    Hi Rajiv
    I havent been feeling too well, so i’m afraid i’m going to have to pull out of Thursday’s session.

  64. rajiv
    Thu 29 January 2009 at 8:18 am

    Ok Reza. 1 place left for tonight.

    Franco, please let us know by the end of today whether you and your colleagues are confirmed for Sunday (1 February 2009), 5 to 6 pm at FICO (Jurong West), so that I can put it out to everyone in tomorrow’s update in order to try to get 10 players confirmed by Saturday evening.

    Please let me have at least the confirmed number, and if possible, their names.

    Thanks.

  65. Boris
    Thu 29 January 2009 at 8:37 am

    I can play this Sunday as well.

  66. Damian
    Thu 29 January 2009 at 9:59 am

    Tonight’s line ups under Current Schedule.

    Andy M, could you pay for the pitch and collect each player’s share? Does anyone have a ball? I don’t think Sports Planet have any good ones left.

  68. Boris
    Thu 29 January 2009 at 1:15 pm

    I think Andy has a decent football.

  69. reza
    Thu 29 January 2009 at 5:13 pm

  70. Andy M
