GG. It was a good game with very few chances and when I scored I thought I'd got a point but I gave away a stupid free kick and it was 2-1. At least i was better then the 7-3Stoo
GS: Sunderland - Cattermole x 1, Van aanholt x 1. Palace - Cabaye x 1.
First league game in about 3 weeks and it's good to be winning again. Game was very tight with it mostly being a possession battle and few chances due to good defending from both sides. A bit like most of the knockout games that we're currently seeing in the Euros. Many call it boring but I actually like these type of matches (well at least playing in them) as it shows both teams are well matched, know how to keep the ball well and are good at defending. Smithy scored in the 82nd min or so to cancel out cattermole's first half header but I got a lucky break in the 88th min when I passed a free kick on the edge of area into the box due to smithy putting a man on the line. Kirchcoff took an almighty defender swing at it and it deflected off van aanholt, deceiving the GK. Smithy ought to feel hard done by for not getting anything out of this game but I'm just happy to win again and even just play an aor league match again.
Now to hopefully play people more regularly and build a solid run.
Felt like Christmas with all the gifts that came my way during the first 60 minutes ahahaShaw lXl
Scorers: Batshuayi & Isla; Krameric (x3)
Wow. Worst loss I've ever experienced, how Jordan scored 3 i'll never know. Well, the fact my defence cocked up 3 times and put Krameric through 1on1 might have helped
Just another one of those games, if I even had 1 goal scoring chance like any 'I' gave up I wouldn't be looking at a loss lol
A comfortable first game and an overall deserved win. My 2nd goal was complete BS (a clear foul on his player) but the penalty was the right call and my third goal was a simple move to seal the game. Harry didn't have too many chances in this match either so all in all a pleasing 3 points.
Unlike the first game this was far less a secure win. Harry should have drew here with him hitting the post right at the start of the game and right at the end (that 90th minute post shot was painful to watch, even for me). He put in a good range of shots to challenge my keeper who, for a nice change, decided to actually be a keeper. The goal was probably my best of the season, a nice technical move leading to a clean finish from Tevez. Will likely upload that for the GOTS competition since I'm pretty happy with it. Nice to score 7/9 points from these games but certainly areas to improve on still.
