Thursday Night At Sports Planet: 26 March 2009

I wasn’t able to find anyone to take the place of Murray’s mate, so I hope they were able to find a replacement at Sports Planet.  If they did, they would have lined up as follows:

  • Blacks:  Murray, Steve F, Benjamin, Andrew T, replacement player.
  • Reds:  Tom, Yaseen, John J, Jams, Jujing

I understand Reds won 15-9.  Anyone with any further details, feel free to add it below.

    The line ups was a bit confusing yesterday. When i arrived at sports planet, i saw that Jujing was wearing black and at the same time Murray told me his mate is not coming. As i didnt check the blog before coming (last i saw was at 6pm), i thought you have rejiggled the line ups Rajiv. Jujing was playing black and an indian guy by name of Mini or Milli played for reds. I have not seen his name on the blog before and he told me he has played with us before last thursday. I think John j should know him better. Anyway, this Mini guy is a very good and complete player. Boris is nowhere near him(Anyway Boris is a normal player with certain tricks up his sleeve 🙂 ) . Mini passes, tackles and is skilful. The best thing is he covers back for the team and no one scolds or pinpoints each other mistake. I was talking to Mini after the game and took his number. I thought he is a Malaysian or something BUT shockingly, he is working as a construction worker worker here and he is from India. Now tell me something guys. How often do you bump into someone from India who is good in football and at the same time working in the construction line. Well thats something to ponder about… Yesterday, looking at blacks, anyone can be intimidated by their superior physical presence.. Andy t was scary boy.. He had a built of a professional footballer and he had nice touches on the ball. Yesterday Tom was on fire as a goalie especially saving everything Steve was rocketing at him simply because Steve is a liverpool fan and Tom didnt want him to score 🙂
    Jujing and Benjamin is more of a direct and Robust players.. Moving over to Murray… He has this smile that never goes off him.. No matter how tense the situation may be, he is always smiling. That is the thing i like about him 🙂
    Jams and John was spraying in the passes and scoring the goals yesterday. Mini was the link between attack and defence. For myself, i was more of a passenger pigeon on the pitch. Tom was more of the fatherly figure looking after his boys. (anyway did anyone noticed Tom’s recently visible beer belly?? shhhhh)
    Other then that, it was an evenly matched game where heroic goalkeeping and making your chances count was the big difference in yesterday’ clash.. Final score 15-9

      Thanks Yaseen.

      “Mini” sounds like the same guy who played last Thursday. I said the same things about him then. 🙂 Only difference is that I got his name as “Prabakaran”. Maybe “Mini” is his nickname.

      Yaseen, if you open a WordPress account, I’ll add you as an author, so you can put posts up yourself.

      Tom has had a series of games where he’s been outstanding in goal. He should try an 11-a-side game in goal.

          I am amazed for an INdian to have a name MINI ME 🙂

          Anyway looks like i must have missed the game of the week . Will love to play with this MINE ME guy 🙂 and with TOM as goal keeper and me wearing liverpool jersey on that night playing against him .

            not sure why his name is mini Rand.. hope its nothing to do with his anatomy 🙂
            Anyway, for you to score against Tom, would be a real uphill task. Trust me but he is too good for ANY scouser’s fan..

        If Prabhakaran had been added to the rankings the week before, the line ups would have been:

        • Blacks: Murray, Steve F, Benjamin, Andrew T, Jujing.
        • Reds: Tom, Yaseen, John J, Jams, Prabhakaran

        Which was how it was in the end.

      Thanks for his number Yaseen. I called him this morning. It is the same guy who played the week before.

      His name is Prabhakaran. He is working at Kembangan. He finishes work at 6.00 pm, and goes down to Sports Planet to try to get a game.

      He is keen to play with us regularly.

      I told him that everyone usually pays their share, but as he is a construction worker, he can’t be earning much. I told him to let me know if he can’t afford to pay his share.

      I leave it to those who play on a Thursday to decide whether to collect his share (so S$8 per person) or not (so S$9 each from the rest). For the rest of us, the extra one dollar shouldn’t make any difference.

      Like I’ve said before, FIOFAFI is open to all working adults who want to play, and do so in the right spirit.

        no problem in regards to this.. No one should be deprived of football cause from what i see, i beleive every1 in Fiofafi is earning well enough and a dollar and two wont hurt any1’s pocket. Thats the spirit guys.. Cheers 🙂

      When I put up the poll, I didn’t know who played, so I just added “The replacement (if any)” as one of the choices.
