5 games, 5 different positions

Today we played Evergreen Secondary, and finally chalked our first victory.

But today was offcially played at stopper.
So that is like my 5th different position in 5 different games.

But after I covered for Matthew once, we couldnt be bothered to swap back until he became tired.
Mr Danker then decifded that i play sweeper since Matthew was running up too much.

Altogether i touched the ball 6 times.
3 times i tackled, 3 times passses from my own team.

Kind of feel the team wasnt really tested to day.
Neither Mr Soh nor Mr Danker yelled at us.

So now all thats left is for me to play left back against NJC, and i would have played in all the defensive positions available, unless you consider low centre as being a defensive position.

Game 4

So went to CCAB, expecting a match against Sengkang Sec or Northland, but was told we were going to play Temasek Poly.
The third time in four weeks.

Unfortunately we lost agin, 1 to nothing.
4 games, 4 losses.
At least this was our best performance.

But in the 4 games i've played, i've played in 4 different positions.
Left Mid, Right mid, Right Back, and sweeper.

Played sweeper yesterday in Matthew's absence.
Quite enjoyed myself there.
Still dont know which i prefer.
Right back or sweeper?

Mr Danker said that my tacklng was good, although i still had to improve on my distribution.
He said i was a reactive player.
Every action by an oppomnent would produce a quick reaction from me.

He even was able to make fun of me about my commanding of my defence.
Mr Danker: Colin can you be more specific? Take which man? There are 11 men on the field.

Finally in defense.

Had a match today, against Temasek Poly.
But preparation didnt begin today, it was right from yesterday's training.

Yesterday we started off with the wonderful thing of 2.4.
Failed to meet Ben Soh's target, but got an A according to NAPFA standards.

But we got freaks in the team man.
Tony hit 8min 55 seconds.
He kept running with his head held high, saying the air was fresher.
But then if i look up and breathe, doesnt that mean that the air that Matthew is breathing is fresher than me?
And isnt the so called "fresher air" that Tony breathes of the same freshness of my "normal air" sinec i'm taller than him?

Later we had to do some stickwork and fitness drills too la.
Damn tiring.

But in a way, it was good.
Because by the time we all went home, we were all too tired, that all we could do was sleep.
like for example, joshua that mad ass slept at 10 plus.

But so today, played TP.
Final score was 3-2 in their favour.
i think we all all played much better.

Finally got to play in defense, instead of left and right mid like my other 2 games.

But Ben Soh says i need to work on my passing and distribution.

Well, somehow now i seem to be getting a mental block.
So i'll end the post now.

Faux Crocs

I'm back, because i finally have something to ramble on about.
And today's point of contention is imitation Crocs.

Crocs are these damn famous shoes made of rubber, come in bright outlandish colours, but look ugly as hell in my opinion.
Most people overlook its ugliness as they claim that the shoes are very comfortable and are non slip as well.
The more flambouyant also like them for the bright assortment of colours they come in such as lime green and bright orange.

But what i cannot understand why people go out and buy imitation Crocs.
Perhaps its the "Singaporean" in us which craves fake goods.
i mean, most Singaporeans love the thrill of having something fake, be it DVDs, music, or football jerseys.

People buy Crocs for their comfort, non slip properties, and for the ventilation they provide.
But the fake goods are not made of similar rubber material.
So buyers lose out on the comfort factor, and perhaps the non slip properties.
And if i really wanted ventilation, i'd buy sandals.

So by buying fake crocs, i do not get to enjoy the positives, yet i still look like a retarded clown.
Seriously, crocs look like something only retarded monkeys would wear.

Please people, i know in maths, 2 negatives would make a positive.
But in this case, i dont think having poor quality imitation Crocs and looking like a fool is going to result in anything positive.

Well unless you consider looking like a spastic idiot being something positive.
