Week Ending 22 February 2009

Sun 22 February 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

After a slow pick up in confirmations for Tuesday’s session, we managed the basic one session a night from Monday through to Thursday last week, after a fair amount of players switching, especially from Wednesday’s oversubscribed session.

I’m not sure how we got to 12 votes for Monday’s session. Like I said before, I would imagine that only those who played in a session would be able to vote for the player of the session, but I can’t stop anyone else from voting if they want to (or anyone from voting more than once).  At 10 votes, Boris was 2 votes ahead of Mark L.  I guess a couple of people (not Mark L of course) didn’t want Boris to win player of the session in his last session before he left for Jordan. 🙂

There were only 2 votes in Wednesday’s poll.  Like I said last week, I think we need at least 3 votes for a player of the session poll to be valid.

We also had a great 11-a-side game yesterday afternoon at Meridian Junior College in Pasir Ris.

The top 3 in Germany all failed to win.  Bayern Munich lost at home to mid-table 1. FC Köln (Philipp’s club), while league leaders Hertha BSC Berlin (Franco’s club) lost away at 6th-placed VfL Wolfsburg.  1899 Hoffenheim go back to the top of the Bundesliga with a 3-3 draw away at 7th-placed VfB Stuttgart.

Martin Jol’s Hamburger SV, in third place, are away to fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen in the Sunday game.  A win would see them go top.  Four points divide the top 6.

Liverpool need to win their home game against Manchester City to keep Manchester United in sight at the top of the Premier League.  Manchester City are proving to be a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde club.   You never know who’ll turn up.  They hardly ever turn up against Liverpool though.

Chelsea won 1-0 at Aston Villa in the early kick off yesterday to go back above them into third place.

Andrey Arshavin made his Arsenal debut in their disappointing goalless draw at home to Sunderland.  Arsenal continue to slip further behind the top four.

Geylang United got off to a winning start in the S. League in their opening game on Tuesday.

Last season’s wooden spoonists, Balestier Khalsa, host title holders SAFFC tonight at Toa Payoh Stadium.

UEFA Cup matches (last 32) were played on Wednesday and Thursday.
