Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Forecast looks alright, this time I'll have a swim suit to go get the ball
Looking forward to it.
In the meantime, I'll investigate the possibility to use the indoor field at Milandia (not free, I fear..).

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Hi Slash, yes you are correct, you can check here if in doubt, Beardsy normally makes a notification here if the game is cancelled due to bad weather.

We have 16 players! Yay for attentive reading (or a lack thereof)!

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

RedEagle - someone pulled out so as far as I'm concerned, you are the 15th player. c123 was 16th to sign up. varioplus 17th.

I hope c123 will read this and Red will be able to take the last slot.

The chances of this event being replaced by an offsite doodle increase every time something like this happens.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Just a quickie, the last few weeks we've played and more than 15 people signed up, only about 12 or so showed. I keeping signing up for this at the last moment but whenever I show we are always lacking in number. How about we say that the people who sign up need to turn up at noon +/- 10min then we play in the order we signed up?

@beardsy
Realised after signing up that I was 16th and have not updated apologies.

Will check the thread tomorrow.

Cool. Looks like we have enough for tomorrow. Maybe there'll be a midweek game, though.

There shouldn't be more than 15 signed up. Any number from 8 to 15 and you can have a fun game. More than 15 and it's lame, and needs to be monitored and managed. I have to look around and check that team X is changing the goalkeeper or using their sub. In terms of automatically regulating the childishness and selfishness of the average Sunday morning player, it's not a disaster to have less than 15. In many ways it's better.

The idea that people are going to turn up saying 'I'm number 16 and I'll play if one of the other guys doesn't show up' is not something I want to be involved with. If people want to sign up and not show up on the day, that's bad character and bad karma, but doesn't actually make organising it hard. What is hard is 18 people showing up and all wanting to play. And there's a very, very simple solution - maximum 15 people sign up.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Sorry, domestic issues, did not get my wake up call... And crap, I live outside of Zurich, so would not be able to get there for 12h00 even if I left now.

I'm up for a mid-week game if weather looks good.

Mat, that's awful. Hope it doesn't feel as bad as it sounds.

For people who weren't there - Mat was playing in goal when a hard shot kind of snapped his hand back. It wasn't malicious, of course, but there were a lot of wild shots today.
