Pool_FC 0 - 4 Nobby

Due to an all-day shower, 1160 paying spectators got to see the game on a field-turned-swamp at Pool_FC Arena. David Pint was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Walter Griegel and Michael Aveyard. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Pool_FC formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Ngubase - Olsson, Persson, Esrafilian - Svensson, Jordanovski, Toppila, Säfborn, Johansson - Hansson, Ragnarsson.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Nobby decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. Starters: de Klerk - Aspenling, Larsson, Ramajo - Wennbrant, Claesson, Beltrami, Nederin - Métay, Berkovic, Balantzategi.

The wings were the focus of most of Pool_FC's attacks today. Pool_FC had a chance to take the lead after K. Olsson's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 11 minutes played. With 17 minutes played, Pool_FC's U. Hansson received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. That was no dive! Nobby's H. Beltrami looked to be in real pain after being caught by a stray leg. The fans held their breath, but in the end he managed to get up and keep playing. M. Métay, who often relies on his speed, had a rotten day on the drenched field. A. Johansson is such a powerful player - he hardly even noticed the downpour and bravely fought on through the swampy field. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 37 minutes into the match left Nobby's A. Berkovic completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. A. Berkovic somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Nobby's lead up to 0 - 2. With 44 minutes played, Pool_FC's K. Olsson pulled up limping after a savage, cowardly challenge. But he's not yet ready to shuffle off this mortal coil. He's staying in to play on. The valiant never taste of death but once! It was 0 - 2 at the break. Neither team had an advantage in possession this half.

The Nobby coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 50 minutes, W. Herman came on for M. Claesson. Pool_FC's A. Persson managed a superb strike from the left after 51 minutes that would have left goalkeeper F. de Klerk without a chance, had it not hit the post. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as G. Balantzategi put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 3 after 59 minutes. Confident in their lead, Nobby's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. Nobby's V. Nederin wanted to play on, but after 69 minutes the decision was made to give A. Dahlling a chance in his place. 86 minutes into the match Nobby's H. Beltrami was being cautioned by the referee when he blurted out "I PITY THE FOOL THAT CAUTIONS ME!" The humor was lost on the officials, and his comedic efforts only earned him a straight red card and a trip to the showers. As Nobby's captain went off, he handed the armband to D. Ramajo. M. Ståhlerberg did some final stretches before entering the game as Pool_FC's trainer helped J. Toppila off the field after an injury. Nobby's M. Métay received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 87 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 4. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show Pool_FC in control of the ball, with 57 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

The most outstanding Pool_FC player was without a doubt A. Jordanovski. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by M. Ståhlerberg today. E. Wennbrant performed admirably for Nobby. I can't remember P. Aspenling ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 0 - 4.
