Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Last week was the best game for ages. More of the same, please!

Thanks to the guys who chipped in a bit for the pump (it was only 7 francs, but the gesture was welcome) and it was handy that most people brought a change of shirt.

If we have reached the player limit but you want to play, PM me for my phone number. You can text me and I'll reply at 12:20 or so and say how it looks. If we've got space, you'll get more than an hour, which I'm sure you'll agree is better than nowt.

Same for the FC Hard guys - if you've got a Sunday morning game and want to pop down after that, feel free to text me.


STATS FROM LAST WEEK

Number of ball in river incidents - 1
Number of times ball rescued from river by passing canoeists - 1
Amount raised for pump through voluntary contributions - 2 francs
Players arriving on time - 54%
Strange incidents with stray stone/sniper shot - 1
Number of amazingly hungover star players -1

  • AdShrub - Hi, I would like to play on Sunday if possible. Where exactly is the pitch - is it near the canoe water polo thing?
Hi AdShrub, the pitch is here:

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

So far, forecast indicates a rainy Sunday.. Can we set a deadline on this thread, when it is announced if the game will be held or not?

The reason am asking so is, last season a Sunday was expected to rain.. It was cloudy but didnt rain.. And we ended only 4 there even through there was 10+ confirmed in the thread

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

It depends very much on factors.


Anyway, in terms of tomorrow's game, it's clearly not going to happen.

GAME OFF owing to rain.

Re: GAME OFF Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Yeah, it's really nice out, but the pitch won't have dried off. Even if it's only slightly wet, it's dangerous. A few weeks ago there was just a kind of morning dew type thing happening and people were slipping up all over the place.

Ideally there'd be another place with a more forgiving surface somewhere central, but no-one has found it yet!
