Top of the table clash and let’s be clear this is the biggest game of the year as the gap could be 1 point or 7 points at the end of the match! Bres has rallied the lads in the new change rooms for a pre match address as the coach knows the importance of today’s game!
Pre game summary – SHOC look a solid unit however couple of boys have been grazing in the top paddock as they are carrying a bit extra! Number 15 (or the giant from game of Thrones or Hodor ) towers over what is a reasonable short side! They look to be well skilled in the warm up and it’s set to be a good game!
First half underway as the whites kick the Melbourne st. end. The Ref seems quite uninterested as he lets a couple of free kicks go early!
The whites get the first corner but no one get on the end of it! At the other end corner to them and cleared easily. SHOC seem to be allowing some space in the middle and the whites have had a couple of chances the best a cross from Phil just couldn’t find a head!
First sub of the game as one of their players goes down with a hammie! Bad luck
A curling shot from bobby is saved by the keeper.
Whites are taking it to them as they continue to push forward. 30 mins in no score!
There is a yellow as their captain can’t keep his mouth shut (he must be related to their coach) and the ref warns him to be quite but he just can’t help himself and pow there it is Yellow! Love idiots don’t you?
A Searching ball forward again from the whites as they are clearly the better side
Second sub for SHOC as an ankle injury see the change made!
Rob (the rock) is clearing everything and working across the back, he’s making it his own.
Bobby is subbed off and Faruiz Comes on!
Ollie charges down the right and his cross turns into a Shot and just goes over the top!
Half Time whistle and the Whites had a great half and unlucky not to be leading!
Bres happy at half time and ask the boys to take their chances “we are killing them lets take some more shots” he bellows as he revs them up.
I had the pleasure of watching the game on the SHOC side of the ground and I can confirm their coach is a loud mouth dickhead! I invited him to perhaps get on the ground and show everyone how to play given he offered consistent advice to all players, the ref, the linesman and at one stage I think he told my dog Lenny to sit!!! What a knob!
Second half under way!
A long throw in and a shot saved at the left post nearly the whites in for their first!
SHOC in after a quick ball pushed wide to a free man and a magnificent block from Rob!
The whites look dangerous as they get another corner their 5th for the game, a free kick 30 Mtrs out and Ollie puts it wide but the whites are close! 3rd sub for SHOC and some bloke from the Hobbit comes on! Bilbo Bagans I think!
I am going to put it out there, that SHOC are not the best team we have played this year! They will drop games if this is their best!
Another corner for the whites as Saba cut through the mid field again.
Shot in goal from Matty and its wide left!
Great cross in and Phil just misses under huge pressure
Eddie is a perfect foil at the back and is in passable. Infact Saf, Ollie, Rob, Eddie and Glynn have been great!
Whites control the game as SHOC have their first shot at goal and it’s over the top , another chance and great save off the line by Faruiz
15 mins left and it’s getting tight as 1 goal either way will claim the points! Deep in attack and the whites need to take their chances.
A soft free kick for SHOC in a very dangerous position and save by Glynn
7 mins left and Glynn clears the area after a shot goes miles wide!
Free kick for the whites and it’s saved. Time running out and a corner to the whites and it’s wide. Whites make their last sub with Jason on and a quick ball in and Johnny is wide with his shot! It looks a draw as The whites in attack and it’s a corner and the last chance as hamoods header is wide, nice effort! Another corner and free kick to SHOC! The nob is whinging about everything apparently he thinks screaming at the ref is a strategy? Knob!
The whites have outplayed them all day and that’s unfortunately is full time! A nil all draw and whilst unbeaten still 2nd on the ladder! And 4 points behind SHOC.
A very good performance from the lads and wins are what will be needed from here on out! All played well! That’s it.
