As noticed by the esteemed manager of Roslea, slice o luck are delighted to welcome Armenian international Ohan Vartanyan to the club. Ohan has been bought to ensure that should the club be promoted this season that we can be competitve although we are taking nothing for granted.
Former slice legend Santiago Sabariego had this to say: "This is so exciting for the fans and players, although I fear it may mean some that some players, particularly Otso Roiha, will be moving on."
Can slice blow it again??
After 4 consecutive 2nd place finishes in V.144, the question on the mind of every slice fan is obvious - how will the team screw up a 5 point lead with 3 games to go?? With the final game against Wobblers just 3 weeks away only an amazing number of cock-ups, followed by bad luck, injuries and loss of form can stop slice from recording a first V title, previously held by Thrillers, Roslea and last season's breakthrough side, Wobblers.
Will slice run away with it? Don't hold your breath.
Wobblers: the jammiest team in Hattrick?
It's interesting to note that of Wobblers 6 wins, 4 of them have been when they have been behind on hatstats and stars, as they were in tonight's comeback to 2-2.
Is there another team in HT that can match this run of luck? Make your applications to Norris MacWhirter at the Guinness book of records...
Slice boss looks forward to double-header
The slice team and fans were united in a mixture of anticipation and apprehension today as the double-header with the Wobblers looms ever closer.
"We are favourites over the two matches" acknowledged the gaffer, "but if I know this team we'll find a way to mess it up"
The board and sponsors are desperate for the team to record 6 points over their rivals as slice continue on their push for promotion to div IV and the additional revenue it will bring.
Week 10 - all change??
Predictions for week 10 - Holbrooks to overcome Roslea and Thrillers to record their first win since playing me in the opening fixture:
Slice 3-0 BOM
Roslea 1-2 Holbrooks
Thrillers 2-0 Fingers
Loungers 6-0 Kiev
If correct this will see Thrillers climb out of the bottom two whilst slice go top.
BOM will once again find themselves fighting auto relegation, whilst Kiev have surely thrown in the towel this season and will be looking to rebuild from div VI next time round.
Good luck al
V.144 "Better than Corrie"
The mother of slice boss svensjr today announced that she considered the twists & turns of V.144 to be more interesting than her "programmes".
"Oooh, I can't wait to see what happens with Kiev and his stash", she said, whilst making a nice cup of tea. "And as for Thrillers, I though that nice boy Carl Pedley would have them riding high, not staring at a stint in Div 6. I'm so glad Dancing on Ice has finished cos now Sunday night is my Hattrick night!"
Slice's out of form flops finally registered a great league win over leaders Holbrooks this weekend. We can only hope that this win provides the catalyst to climb the table, although with some great teams above and below, V.144 is incredibly competitive this year. As of today, last season's top 3 sit in 4th, 5th and 7th place... well played Roslea and Holbrooks.
Next week's top of the table clash next week will surely be pivotal and we may see CCFC retake top spot as the rollercoaster continues
And so, the end is near...
We go into the last game of an eventful season with only Podgy and Allegro sure of their status. Dalgleish & BOM battle for a qualifier, whilst Kiev and Holbrooks look for the points to assure v status. In the meantime, Thrillers, hot favourites for the title must decide whether to go all out for top spot or hold something back for what will surely be a tough qualifier.
In any case, a vintage season finishes tomorrow and we at slice would like to wish all teams the very best of luck.
Out of our hands... again
Despite being outclassed in every area of the pitch, Thrillers fought hard to put the title destination back in their own hands, whilst the slice boss could only look on as his side failed to take the few chances presented.
Slice must now travel to resurgent BOM and then host Kiev, whilst Thrillers take on whipping-boys Allegro Maestoso and the evenly-matched CCFC Holbrooks. Where will the title end up - that, unfortunately, is not for me to say.
Three massive games to go
Slice fans watched on in amazement as Tomas Irstrand, Honorary Life Member of SOLSA lashed home to send BOM and Slice fans into raptures. The manager could scarcely believe his eyes:
"Incredibly unlucky for Thrillers - 3 points from the last 9 and now a 4-week injury to Pienaar. I have every sympathy for them but we must stay focussed. The league is now ours to win."
The boss went on to pay warm tribute to the BOM manager, but warned him not to expect any favours in 2 weeks time.
