Weekend Schedule Plus FAFI Game on Monday: 26 To 28 September 2009

Wed 23 September 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sports Planet is not available this Saturday evening as they are having their own event, so we’re back at The Cage again.

We didn’t have a session last Sunday, not only because several regulars were away for the long weekend, but also because the proposal for us to play another team didn’t go through.  As I was only informed at a late stage that they didn’t have a team, we were stuck with 8 players, and I didn’t have enough time to find additional players to make at least 10.

The  schedule for this weekend is as follows:

  • Saturday, 26 September 2009, 4.50 pm to 6.00 pm, at The Cage.
  • Sunday, 27 September 2009, 4.50 pm to 6.00 pm, at Turf City.

Again, what kind of session we have on Sunday will depend on the numbers.

As usual, confirmations and any withdrawals below please.  For any withdrawals on the day of the session itself, please SMS me in addition to commenting on the blog.

Rather than have a separate post for the FAFI game on Monday night (28 September 2009) at Turf City, updates on the Monday night game can be added as a comment below.

It also makes sense to cover both sessions/games at Turf City (on Sunday evening and Monday night respectively) in one post, as there is an overlap in the pool of regulars for each.

    A lot of places left for Sunday, so I SMSed several regulars. Anthony, Erik, Sunny, Gilbert G and Gerald are in. 1 more for a 7-a-side, 3 more for an 8-a-side.

    Nick SMSed to say he can play tomorrow. I’ve had a bruise on my left knee since last Saturday, so I’ll leave myself in reserve.

    hey guys, count me in for 7/8 a side, Sunday, Turf City!!

    John L SMSed last night to say he’s in for Sunday. Erik also SMSed last night to say Ken and Samuel are in for Sunday too. Balach also SMSed me last night about the time he added his comment above. We’ve reached 17. If we have 3 more, we might have two 5-a-side games instead.

    • rajiv
      Sat 26 September 2009 at 8:12 am

      I SMSed Balach, and he’s not in for a 5-a-side game. I’ll put him in reserve for now. Anyway, he was the last in time to confirm, although there is a question whether confirming on the blog should have priority over confirming by SMS or e-mail.

      On the other hand, like I said in the post above, the type of session depends on the numbers. There are difficulties for me if you say you’ll only play in a 7 or 8-a-side on the big pitch but not in 5 or 6-a-side on a small pitch. Apart from the possibility of going up to 20 or 24, what if say we have 14 for a 7-a-side on a big pitch, but there are a couple of withdrawals, which means the game will go ahead as a 6-a-side on a small pitch. Does that mean you won’t play, in which case, we’re further reduced to 11? Such a qualified confirmation is an unnecessary complication for me.

      I know there is a preference for a 7 or 8-a-side on a big pitch, and I do try to get just enough players for it, but I can’t guarantee it. The bottom line is that it depends on the numbers:

      • 10 to 12 players: 5 or 6-a-side on the small pitch.
      • 14 to 16 players: 7 or 8-a-side on the big pitch.
      • 20 to 24 players: 4 teams playing on two small pitches.

        Balach just SMSed me to say he’s fine with being in reserve. Thanks Balach. I suppose it suits his wish to only play on the big pitch.

        • Balach
          Sat 26 September 2009 at 9:40 am

          yeah, I just like it more cuz it gives you the option to play more of a passing game and you can build up to the final shot at the goal.. and ofcourse the fact that I much slower than everybody else, so the extra space and more people to pass to, definitely come in handy!

          Lemme know if the bigger pitch goes through!

          P.S. I’m good with 6-a-side on the bigger pitch as well :)..

            Sat 26 September 2009 at 11:28 am

            Interesting Balach, playing 6-a-side on a big pitch. It’s not something I’d thought about before. I’ve continued the discussion here.

    • rajiv
      Sat 26 September 2009 at 11:47 am

      Erik has a recurring ankle injury, so he SMSed to say he can rest tomorrow, so Balach is in.

      I’ll just cap numbers for tomorrow at 16, so the issue of whether to go up to 20 doesn’t arise again this weekend. 🙂
