Where should I start? Well, I woke up around 10 o’clock and looked out of the window to a miserable grey sky. So, I slowly crawled out of the bed and got ready for the big game ahead. I thought that the game was going to be so easy even Toytown would be able to keep up with the play.
As I arrived at the pitch there was an unseal thing was happening, there was music by the side of the pitch as 6 south players knocking the ball around while the L1 where doing drills. As the time when on the more south players arrived and only two Hertford players arrived. As we were hitting balls at Toytown, the music carried on playing. The rest of the team arrived, apart from Josh how thought turning up on time is a waste.
So, the warm-up. We got instructed by Matt to do a run and the most surprising part of all of this was that George when on the run too, which was a site on its own. Then came the stretches.
Now the start of the game, as much as Kern is an OCD freak. This time he decided to split the team into two groups and decide the positions relative to where you like to play. But then Kern mentioned that he will start on and then come off within 2 minutes, which made sense? The game started, and the team started on par with the other team. After a couple of minutes, Kern came off, shortly followed by Josh, which made no sense to me which made me forget my gum shield, so I said that I need a gum shield couple of times. Then a short corner came and the team scored to form a scrappy goal that nobody could have seen coming. After that wakeup call, we fought back with a passion but still could not pull magic out our asses. But after a long struggle, I (Sev) slapped a hopeful ball into the oppositions circle. Which was deflected into the goal by Ed. I mean the ball was superbly placed with the right amount of speed, I mean it was sex on a stick. The game was back on, but before we could enjoy the goal another goal was scored. This meant at halftime we were losing if some of you don’t understand basic maths.
The halftime talk was very shallow and not informative, the only thing we spoke about is not sub on imminently but instead, give the man a two-minute warning. Plus, some other things that I didn’t listen to as I was thinking about the pizzas after the game.
The second half, well the second half wasn’t any better for me as this time I forgot the most import part of the kit, a stick. As I was celebrating not forgetting gum shield, I forgot the stick. But for me, this wasn’t the highlight of the game. As the game progressed some more goals have been scored buy Hertford. By this stage, I forgot how many goals been scored but for those who want to know Hertford was winning. This was partly to Neil’s lack of breathing and able to run more than two yards without having an asthma attack. Then he hit the post which made his best performance period. Then ten minutes left on the clock remaining the Hertford winger was through and the striker was ready to score as he slipped the ball into the centre of the field. As the ball was hit the stick mercurially fell out of the hand and slipped between George's legs. George took a lot of stick for not being able to keep his legs together. Post match voting compared him to the Grand Canyon. He wasn’t happy. He even tried to slide tackle a winger. After that, we managed to get a short corner which was executed perfectly by Scott, which had an awesome game and performed flawlessly. Minutes after that the game ended and we lost 8-2. But as it a friendly we didn’t take much notice of the soccer apart from George who hated it.
At the clubhouse, the big gag was about Georges five-hole. But particularly the striker from the other team must have a mention as he was one our man of the match selections. Even Nev had a nomination for the only player avoiding a negative rating. The battle for MoM was close but Ed stole the show. The LoM was a close between me and George but due to my forgetfulness, I got the LoM this week.
But this is the most important part of the pizza review. For me, the base of the pizza was a little bit to thick the pepperoni pizza was the best one by far followed by the cheese pizza. This week I will give the pizza 7 of 10, I was satisfied with the pizza but hoped for more like this game.
