Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Stats from today's game (May 1):

Times ball hoofed into river: 2
Glasses falling off incidents: 1 (down from 6 the week before)
Percentage of players who brought white shirts: 60+
Percentage of players arriving on time: 88

Let's hope we continue to be lucky with the weather. It's awesome.

Maybe you guys can bring a couple of t-shirts to the game so we can mix the teams up a bit better.
Also, I'll buy a pump for the ball. Everyone can chip in thirty rappen if they want!

Where are the bibs Salsa_Lover donated to these games?

88% punctuality is remarkable. I can't believe it.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Hey beardsy, it looks like you have 16 people signed up now.
I will come and be a sub (as I have signed up on time) but I prefer to play in goal when I can. (I am not supposed to get my hair wet for the next three days, and all of that running around makes one perspire ) See you tomorrow!

As far as I know, there were three sets originally. One was lost before my time. The other two are accounted for (i.e I know who has them), but the guys who have them right now don't necessarily come every week and the other week one of the guys did come, but forgot.

Weird, right? Personally I find it extremely lame.
I don't think it's people deliberately wanting to ruin the fun for everyone else. It's more likely to be the modern culture of entitlement. Everyone agrees that 15 is the optimal number, but no-one wants to be the one who misses out.

If it comes to it, I'll run an invite-only game via doodle or something.

Given that nobody wants to be in goal (and some have to be asked to take a turn, like frikkin children), that's fine! You can be on my team :-)


OTHER GOOD NEWS
We might get some free juice!

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Cool - a friend of mine will show up a bit late, so that'll work out well.

I'll put next week's thread up some time tonight. See you there next week!

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Sorry! I was sure I had put my name down as a "Maybe" cos I didn't know whether i'd turn up or not.

Apologies if i was expected.

Kash.
