Schedule: Week Of 9 March 2009


I’ll stick with the basic Monday to Wednesday at The Cage and Thursday at Sports Planet for next week:

  • Monday, 9 March 2009, 8.50 pm to 10 .00 pm, at The Cage, Kallang.
  • Tuesday, 10 March 2009, 8.50 pm to 10 .00 pm, at The Cage, Kallang.
  • Wednesday, 11 March 2009, 8.50 pm to 10 .00 pm, at The Cage, Kallang
  • Thursday, 12 March 2009, 8.50 pm to 10 .00 pm, at Sports Planet @ East Coast.

With two sessions on a Wednesday twice since the start of February (on 8 February 2009 and again yesterday), Wednesdays are by far the most popular, followed by Thursdays, then Mondays.

On the other hand, we have not had a session on each of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays since 9 February 2009:

It’s all in the numbers.

Confirmations below as usual.   I’ve noticed three basic responses:

  • You are able to play a session, and want to play (“confirmed” for short).
  • You’d like to play, but can’t confirm yet (“contingent” or “tentative” for short).
  • You are able to play, and will play if we’re short, but if others wants to play, they can have priority.  Perhaps “available if required”.  “In reserve” was used quite often to mean this, and although I use the phrase to mean something different, I guess it works.

Use any suitable words to convey the meaning you want in your comments below.

If we reach up to 20 for either Wednesday or Thursday, it will be a “double bill” or a mini-tournament if it’s on Wednesday, and a “split bill” if it’s on Thursday.

    Unless we get 6 or 7 confirmed for tomorrow’s session by this evening, it will be cancelled. If you can play tomorrow night, confirm as usual, but do state your alternative (if any).

    Mon 9 March 2009 at 5:06 pm

    Tonight’s line ups under Current Schedule.

    Shankar, could you pay for the session and collect each player’s share? Thanks.

  30. Jonathan Siu
    Mon 9 March 2009 at 5:25 pm

    Rajiv, is there space for me on Thursday 12 March? Let me know.

  31. rajiv
    Mon 9 March 2009 at 7:42 pm

    Tomorrow’s session is cancelled due to insufficient numbers.

    Jonathan, you can take my place for Thursday. I’ll be in reserve for both Wednesday and Thursday. If we have 6 to 9 more for either Wednesday or Thursday, we can have two sessions on that day.

  32. Clive
    Tue 10 March 2009 at 7:55 am

    Please can I add my name onto the reserve list for both Wednesday and Thursday.

    Any last minute drop outs and I should be able to fill the gap.

    Cheers, Clive

  33. Damian
    Tue 10 March 2009 at 4:21 pm

    Hiya just got back from NY today…if any slots avail on Wed or Thurs I cld fill tt. Tks

  34. rajiv
    Tue 10 March 2009 at 4:30 pm

    The remaining sessions this week (tomorrow and Thursday) are full.

    The same 3 players are in reserve for both sessions.

    If we have another 3 to 7 players for tomorrow, or another 5 to 7 for Thursday, we can have 2 sessions on either of those days.

    One or the other though, not both. Which one (if any) will depend on the responses we get.

    • rajiv
      Tue 10 March 2009 at 4:48 pm

      If it’s on Wednesday, as both sessions will be at The Cage, we can do an impromptu mini knock-out competition (instead of an impromptu mini-league tournament).

      If we only have 16 players, it will be 4 players per team. I still maintain that 4 v 4 is enjoyable if we play to the side-lines, that is, the other side will have kick in if the ball touches the side-wall. It slows the game down sufficiently to make 4 v 4 more skilful and not too exhausting.

      If we get to 20, then it will be the usual 5 players per team.

      If it’s Thursday, then the original session will remain at Sports Planet while the second session will be at The Cage. The session at Sports Planet will remain 5 v 5, while the one at The Cage will be either 4 v 4 or 5 v 5 depending on how many players we have.

  35. rajiv
    Tue 10 March 2009 at 8:33 pm

    I SMSed a few participants whom I thought might play tomorrow but they’re not available to play tomorrow. As no one else has responded, it appears that the option of having two sessions tomorrow is not viable, so there’ll only be one session tomorrow.

    The option still remains of having two sessions on Thursday. For there to be two sessions, we’ll need at least another 5 players to confirm by about this time tomorrow.

  36. Nick
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 11:59 am

    IS there any chance of having two sessions tonight ?

    Would love to play if there is ?

    Nick 🙂

    • rajiv
      Wed 11 March 2009 at 12:35 pm

      Doesn’t look likely Nick.

      If we got 2 more players, we’d be up to 16, and we could have two 4 v 4 sessions, or a mini knock-out competition.

      However, I’d also need to check if a second pitch is still available at The Cage for 9 to 10 pm tonight, as I gave it up last night.

      There’s always next week.

  37. Nick
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 2:03 pm

    Rolf is interested tonight

  38. Nick
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 2:51 pm

    Hi I now have a mate Rafi, Rolf and Myself.

    If I get any more would anyone be interested in comp ?

    That’s if we can get second pitch of course

  39. rajiv
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 3:31 pm

    The second pitch is still available.

    We’re up to 16, so we’ll go ahead with 4 teams of 4 in a mini knock-out competition.

    Line ups will be up after 5 pm.

  40. rajiv
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 3:45 pm

    Alan can play too, so we’re up to 17. 3 more and we can have 5-man teams.

  41. rajseran
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 3:47 pm

      I bang all day but playing soccer tonight .

  43. rajiv
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 4:58 pm

    Just spoke to Nick. Rolf has only played once before, a while back, and he did struggle even in a 5 v 5, while Rafi hasn’t played with us before, so as discussed with Nick, Rolf and Rafi will take turns.

    We’ll stick with a mini knock-out competition.

  44. rajiv
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 5:06 pm

    Line ups:

    * Team A (Whites): Gilbert, Sushil, Lukas, Rolf/Rafi
    * Team B (Blacks): Clive, Rajiv, Andy N, Amaury
    * Team C (Whites): Damian, Nick, Andy P, Julius
    * Team D (Blacks): Alan, Rajseran, Chris, Geoff

    Semi-finals (9.00 to 9.28 pm):
    • 1: Pitch 3 – Team A v Team D
    • 2: Pitch 4 – Team B v Team C

    Third & Fourth Placing (9.32 to 10.00 pm):
    • Pitch 4: Losing team in Semi-final 1 v Losing team in Semi-Final 2.

    Finals (9.32 to 10.00 pm):
    • Pitch 3: Winning team in Semi-final 1 v Winning Team in Semi-final 2.

    If teams wearing the same colours meet in the Final and Third/Fourth Placing, The Cage has bibs.

    • Yaseen
      Wed 11 March 2009 at 5:08 pm

      My prediction for tonight.. winner will be team A followed by team C

      • rajseran
        Wed 11 March 2009 at 5:47 pm

        I am having steroids tonight , Your prediction might be wrong 🙂

  45. rajiv
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 5:33 pm

    For tonight’s mini knock-out competition, we’ll play to modified rules – we play to the side-lines, that is, the ball is considered out of play and the game resumes with a kick-in when it touches the the side walls.

  46. rajseran
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 5:42 pm

    My prediction is TEAM A to win followed by TEAM D Walkover 🙂

    Team A looks really strong .

    • yaseen
      Thu 12 March 2009 at 1:58 am

      looks like your steriod is locally made.. thats why you didnt get 1st 😉

  47. Reza
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 6:04 pm

    I think Team B have quite a good shot at winning.

  48. rajiv
    Wed 11 March 2009 at 7:44 pm

    Yaseen called me to say he’s keen to play, so he can take my place. Revised line ups:

    * Team A (Whites): Gilbert, Sushil, Lukas, Rolf/Rafi
    * Team B (Blacks): Yaseen, Nick, Andy N, Amaury
    * Team C (Whites): Clive, Rajseran, Andy P, Julius
    * Team D (Blacks): Damian, Alan, Chris, Geoff

    We’ll do a mini-league tournament instead!

    • yaseen
      Thu 12 March 2009 at 1:56 am

      My predictions were spot on.. 🙂

      • rajiv
        Thu 12 March 2009 at 7:16 am

        Well, the line ups were different when you made your predictions. 🙂

  53. rajiv
    Thu 12 March 2009 at 3:30 pm

    I’ve spoken with Andy and Yaseen, and they’d have played if there were no one else available, but as James would like to play tonight, and hasn’t played for ages, he’s in.

    The line ups will be up by 5 pm.

  54. rajiv
    Thu 12 March 2009 at 4:18 pm
