Meeting Point: Ämtlerwiese Ground

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO SATURDAY GIVEN THE POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS ON SUNDAY.

We're having the regular game at the Ämtlerwiese Location

Time: 12:00 - 14:00

Meeting point: Ämtlerwiese, Kreis 4, Zürich.

There, is a large grass pitch and two large goals. The best shoes are trainers with good tread. Studs will make rather a mess of the field if everyone uses them, but it that's all you've got then bring them along.

Exact location can be found here (Corner of Saumstrasse & Bertastrasse):

Re: Zurich Saturday Football

Lads,

The weather's not positive on Sunday, and Saturday has a low risk of rain. The reason we don't want to regularly play in the rain is to avoid messing up the pitch (too much). Let's give it a go on Saturday this week, and soon we won't have an issue with the rain.

I won't be showing up, but a guest will be taking my spot. Enjoy the game, and I hope we have a large enough turn out, given the day change.

Cheers

Was it genuinely coming out of your backside, or is that just a misinformed notion that you're intent on repeatedly displaying your possession of?



Thanks for organising, Aquanexus, and thanks to everyone who played on Saturday. Really enjoyable game. Bagsy on the same team as the puddle for next time.

There's no award for being a constant grown-up pussy either. I kid, I kid the African dude taught to fear dark clouds, but seriously though... since I was toddler, I played football (with a nearly flat ball) in rain and shine (in presumably a very different part of Africa), until the 'grass' pitch became a freaking mudpit. It was still fun! Heck, I even played regularly on loose sand at the beach and not one of my peers complained about the lack of high-quality grass, too much rain or too much sun. Hopefully you see things from my point of view before kiddingly calling me a bell-end next time Oh and I'd rather be a bell-end than a pussy

Your 'mate',
Krash357

What the bleep are you talking about mate? I just described the damn weather and you have to over-analyze like a little b*tch...

I also would like to thank Aquanexus for organizing but I don't HAVE to agree with all the decisions he makes.

It's an idiom; to say that someone thinks the sun shines out of their backside is to say that they're arrogant.

It doesn't take much more than a speck of common sense to realise how "describing the weather" is most likely to be interpreted after childishly moaning about a well-considered change of plan: rather as a needless, provocative comment, than a magnanimous gesture for those of us not within viewing distance of a window.

Thanks for the wonderfully mature private message, by the way. I was prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt since you don't seem half as obnoxious at the games as you do on the forum, but it does seem to back up the impression that most of your posts give. See you at the next game, I suppose.
