PRE SEASON REPORT: KUDA LAUT GEMILANG (jayatsena)

MANAGER: Roy Hodgson

CHAIRMAN: Be Jayatsena

DIVISION: Barclays Premier League

PRE SEASON FRIENDLIES

Porto 2-0 Kuda Laut Gemilang

Benfica 1-1 Kuda Laut Gemilang

Leiria 3-2 Kuda Laut Gemilang

Inverness Caledonian Thistle 2-0 Kuda Laut Gemilang

MK Dons 2-1 Kuda Laut Gemilang

AC Milan 0-2 Kuda Laut Gemilang

Catania 1-1 Kuda Laut Gemilang

TRANSFERS

None

An uninspiring pre season campaign for Kuda Laut Gemilang and their manager Roy Hodgson with just one win from seven games although that bizarrely came against AC Milan. Kuda Laut Gemilang have made no signings yet this summer and their fans will be hoping for a couple of additions before the end of the transfer window with a goalkeeper and striker looking like the priority. Whilst the defence should be solid with Phil Neville and David Luiz protected further by Nigel De Jong, the creative aspects of Samir Nasri, Thomas Muller and Antonio Cassano’s games could be enhanced with an out and out goalscorer – unfortunately, Danny Graham, Nikola Kalinic and Kris Boyd are unlikely to be that man! Kuda Laut look set for a season of mid table mediocrity unless the manager splashes some cash over the coming weeks.

LIKELY 11: Schwarzer, Neville, Balzaretti, David Luiz, Dunne, De Jong, Jeffren, Muller, Nasri, Cassano, Boyd

Arsenio Valpoort (£1.9m, Heerenveen)

David Barral (Season Loan, Sporting Gijon)

Ouasim Bouy (£1.3m, Ajax)

Pavle Ninkov (£2m, Red Star)

A worrying pre season for New Bloc fans as Chris Hughton – hailed as a football management genius by some since his spell at Newcastle – offers little evidence that New Bloc can compete for the title this season. The Bloc have made six new signings and have by far the largest squad in the Premier League which means they should have the depth needed to be secure this season but they maybe need an extra bit of quality if they are going to challenge for anything but top half. The likes of Rio Ferdinand, Darijo Srna, Andrey Arshavin and Andres Iniesta will certainly be hoping for a top rate striker to join the club to partner Andy Carroll and guarantee the goals needed.

LIKELY 11: Jaaskelainen, Srna, Criscito, Godin, Ferdinand, Sidwell, Jonas, Iniesta, Arshavin, Carroll, Zamora

Jadson (£6.5m, Shakhtar Donetsk)

Sylvain Distin (Free)

Joseph Yobo (Free)

Some clever signings from manager Roberto Martinez to bolster the Real Clifton side through pre season as he brings in solid and dependable Premier League defenders for free as well as highly rated attacking Brazilian midfielder at a snip at £6.5m. An unbeaten pre-season can only help to excite the fans further with a strong defence evident as they conceded just 4 goals in 7 games. With Yobo and Distin joining the likes of John Terry, Eric Abidal and Patrice Evra, you can see why their defensive record is good. Xabi Alonso and Rafael Van Der Vaart, as well as Jadson, will pull the strings in midfield but if there is a question mark over Real Clifton, it is up front. Can Roman Pavlyuchenko, Federico Macheda and Andre-Pierre Gignac score the goals they need to deliver silverware?

Leon Osman (Free)

Imanol Agirretxe (Season Loan, Real Sociedad)

A decent pre season for Owen Coyle’s men as they prepare for life in the Premier League with three wins and two draws. The signing of Leon Osman is a good, sensible signing to bolster the midfield with young striker Imanol Agirretxe also looking to make an impact this season. Kasper Schmeichel and Joe Hart resume their battle for the Number 1 shirt – from their Manchester City days – but the defence in front of the chosen one looks poor with Roger Johnson and Laurent Koscielny likely to start in the centre. Strengthening in the defence should ensure survival for Phoenix who have the forwards to get the goals needed in Vagner Love and Emmanuel Adebayor. However, the goals they are likely to concede could see them sucked into a scrap at the bottom.

LIKELY 11: Hart, Ferreira, Tremoulinas, Johnson, Koscielny, Schweinsteiger, Pedro, Mikel, Arteta, Adebayor, Vagner Love

TRANSFERS

No signings as yet from Sir Alex as he seems content with his squad who had a decent pre season and remained unbeaten until their latest game with Inter Milan. Senseless showed that they can compete with some of the big European names in pre season and will be hoping to get off to a good start to their season. The squad is small but well balanced although the argument would be for an out and out goalscorer to complement the undoubted talents of the gifted but versatile Pato, Robinho and Lisandro Lopez. If a goalscorer can be added, Senseless should have no trouble steering clear of the scrap at the bottom and could be a darkhorse to challenge higher with luck.

Roy Keane’s Hobbits managed to come out of pre season with a set of good results – barring the first one – and can be confident of building on that with the arrival of French right back Mathieu Debuchy and Croatian midfielder Ognjen Vukojevic over the summer. A squad with depth, Shire FC could be a team to watch this season with potential to go either way depending on how the new signings settle and how the early momentum goes. Lee Camp will start in goal and he has Premier League experience ahead of him in Wayne Bridge, Chris Samba and former Liverpool defender Rigobert Song as well as Walter Samuel and Gabriel Milito, the Argentinian pair, joining the club as well. If the midfield can step up and create chances, there is every chance that the likes of Goran Pandev, Gabby Agbonlahor, Bojan and Louis Saha could score the goals. However, this will only happen if they are created the chances in the first place!

Marcus Hahnemann (Free)

A dreadful start to pre season improved in the end but the lack of goals will be a worry to Galaxy manager Mick McCarthy ahead of the new Premier League season. The signing of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal for a massive £15.5m may help Galaxy to cure this problem in the long run but he will need time to settle in. The rest of the squad holds flashes of quality but there are several problems: Gianluigi Buffon is a fine keeper but he is regularly injured; Jeremy Toulalan is a quality midfielder but is likely to compete with Vidal for a place at times; Ryan Giggs’ legs have almost gone; Dimitar Berbatov and Nikola Zigic are – on their day – capable of causing massive problems for defenders but they both have too many off days. Much will depend on the management of Mick McCarthy if Solent Galaxy are to avoid a scrap at the foot of the table.

Don’t be fooled by their pre season results, Southsea Athletic have a quality squad and could easily be a contender at the top of the Premier League this season. With Mark Hughes splashing the cash on four new signings totalling over £40m – and with more to come it seems – it will take time for the side to gel. If they gel quickly, the title could head for Southsea this season. The dependable Shay Given will be protected by a defence that probably needs strengthening if it is to win the league. However, the likes of Mathieu Valbuena, Wesley Sneijder, Joe Cole, Angelo Palombo and Fernando Torres ahead of them should guarantee goals and should fire them up the table. Can Southsea Athletic win the Premier League? They could do!

Stratford Rangers have prepared for a Premier League and Champions League campaign by assembling a talented squad and manager Gianfranco Zola has added to that intelligently over the summer with the arrival of four good players. Much will depend on the management of Zola this season who remains relatively inexperienced: SPORTS.tv believe that if Zola can get the best out of his squad, they could be the team to beat this season and we predict that they will be champions in May. A backup keeper for Ben Foster is needed but a solid defence is in place with Dani Alves and Thomas Vermaelen part of it. The addition of Barton is clever – he has things to prove – whilst the exciting young wingers Adam Johnson and David Silva should supply chances galore for the strikers. Brazilian Diego Tardelli is Zola’s big signing and is relatively unknown in England but if he can profit from these chances – and he is capable of doing so – then Stratford Rangers could well be heading for the Premier League title this season.

LIKELY 11: Foster, Dani Alves, Rat, Dawson, Vermaelen, Kallstrom, Johnson, Kahlenberg, David Silva, Gyan, Diego Tardelli

Benoit Pedretti (£11m, Auxerre)

A very strange situation at Wootton Wanderers who – despite the good signing of French midfielder Benoit Pedretti – have the smallest squad in the league with just fourteen senior players. Bizarrely, two of these players – John Bostock and Gabriel Obertan – have been made available for loan by manager Paul Lambert and Edwin Van Der Sar has decided to retire at the end of the season. Going forward, if they can stay fit and healthy, the likes of Maxi Rodriguez, Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and John Carew should lead to goals but the lack of defenders is staggering with just Younes Kaboul, Marc Muniesa and Julien Faubert and no recognised left back. Reliance on youth is almost guaranteed to backfire as the quality is simply not there. If manager Paul Lambert doesn’t act before the deadline, there is only one way that Wootton Wanderers are heading.

Fareham Fallguys - A Background & Introduction by Marcus Mann

Welcome all, to this press conference and may I extend my thanks to the many of you that have attended today on what could well be an exciting and successful season ahead for the Fareham Fallguys players, staff and the fans, that will pack out the Creekside Arena each and every week.

If I am not known already, I am Marcus Mann and this is my club, I certainly may not be the richest around or the best equipped to compete in the Premier League as of yet, but it is certainly an honour for another club from the South Coast to be concieved at such short notice and have such an amazing opportunity to be promoted to the big leagues.

By now, you are probably anxious to know why we are standing in the centre circle under sunny Southern skies today and without further ado I would like to introduce our manager for the forseeable future, Roberto Di Matteo, the team assembled through my own doing along with this season's home and away kits, sponsored by Magners Irish Cider, now available for purchase from the Club Megastore.

You may now take this opportunity to take photographs of me and the manager and the players. Here they are: Simon Mignolet, Chris Kirkland, Harry Steele, Rafael, Pablo Zabaleta, Brede Hangeland, Manuel Da Costa, Sebastien Bassong, Paul Robinson, Gael Givet, Milos Krasic, Chung Yong Lee, Yaya Toure, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Tim Cahill, Ramires, Charles N'Zogbia, Matty Etherington, Samuel Eto'o, Shane Long, Franco Di Santo and lastly, Danny Welbeck.

Big smiles gents, this team and its staff will form another footballing dynasty here and we certainly have the right types of characters to take them there. Now with that concludes the presentation and there will be no further questions, however I will leave the media with a few choice words.

"A lie has speed, but truth has endurance." Famous words by the author Edgar J. Mohn, will be one of the cornerstones of this club, honesty. We shall never fall short of this goal, we shall never fall short of the desire to play clean football which is also pleasing to the eye and we shall never ever fall short of holding true to the laws of this beautiful game.

Thank you for your time. That will be all.

The Southern Galactico's

The high-end glitzy Hollywood-esque club in the South. Here we have the club that every Movie stars, Rock stars, Kings and Queens want to be associated with, Solent Galaxy are the cream, the diamond in the rough, the cherry on top. The stadium has a cushion on every seat for the highly esteemed crowd to watch the eloquent ballet on the field.

Dr Jenson Button has pumped hard earned cash, diamonds and gold into the club to make it a brand and with big sponsers from Apple the stature of the club will continue to grow.

The main core of supporters of the Solent Galaxy is the Galaxy Army. Its members are known for their loud, enthusiastic support and the raucous atmosphere they create at Solent games. The group began congregating in section known as the Gemstone to create a Balkan-style rooting section for the club, complete with drumming, flags, scarves, smoke bombs and constant chanting and cheering.

With a poor pre-season and a lack of global superstar signings how long will it be before the Glitz and Glamour leave the Hollywood of the UK, Solent Galaxy.

The Rise of Rushden Phoenix

To be announced (when my computer starts working again...) which is right now...

Back when football wasn't all about the money, 3 brothers - Tommy, Harry and Eddie Sheriff were just supporters of the beautiful game. However they had a secret - They were members of the crime syndicate - The Phoenix 8. In Spring 2009 Phoenix 8 disbanded after completing an Oceans 11 style bank robbery where they successfully robbed Sheikh Mansour El Amir - previously valued in the multi billions. However the Sheikh didn't take this lying down when he started 'eliminating' members of The Phoenix. By The winter 5 of the orignal 8 were presumed dead, only the Sheriff brothers remained. Before the Sheikh could catch them they too vanished and were also presumed dead. When the Top2Bottom Premier Division was announced a mysterious new businessman named T.H.E Sheriff, who claimed to be no relation, stated his interest in forming a team - based on his favourite team Rushden and Diamonds after their chairman had refused to sell the club to him. The new team was named the Rushden Phoenix claiming to have been born from the ashes. The club managed to sign a variety of talented international stars such as England goalkeeper Joe Hart and Togo Striker Emmanuel Adebayor. Sheriff managed to get Owen Coyle to lead the club in there debut season which see's them entered in the European Champions League, no financial bribe was paid...apparently. Predicted to finish in the bottom half of the new table The Phoenix will be hoping that that their European exploits will help them attract new players to their growing francise and hope to build on a decent pre-season. :)

A brief statement from Chairman William Hall

Welcome to all the fans of Chelsea Australia Football Club, we are going to qualify for the Europa League under our brilliant manager Ian Holloway. We have world-class players available in the key areas of defense and midfield with Julio Cesar, Sergio Ramos and Cesc Fabregas. We also have world-class winger Angel Di Maria which will help our attack. At the start of the season I was worried about our attacking quality but my manager Ian Holloway assured me that he will use similar attacking strategies as he has with Blackpool and with world class defensive players such as Julio Cesar and Sergio Ramos defense will not be a problem. Australia we are going to see European football, if we don't Ian Holloway will be sacked immediately.

Season Expectations from Chairman Ernst Scaramanga

The Media have predicted us to finish 5th in the Championship but I am fully confident that Alex McLeish can get automatic promotion to the Premier Division, He assured my personal assisstants, Odd-Job and Nik-Nak, that anything less than Promotion would be considered a failure. With a Staunch defence and one of the best Goalkeepers in the world we should have an excellent defensive record come the end of the season, and the Midfielders will be doing there upmost to help the younger inexperienced strikers find the net on a regular basis. Alex knows he has all my support and I have given him a very healthy transfer kitty, he informed me that he would only buy the right players at the right time and would not be forced into making rash purchases based on pre-season friendlies.

Here today I stand before you, as the chairman, founder and owner of FC Real Clifton. My name is David Matthews and whilst I don't have alot of funds to compete with the best, I do have character and good youth academy. We will be focusing on youth players and Roberto Martinez knows this. He was my first choice as manager and he will be that for a long time to come. We have a new squad this season which sees some top quality players join the club. Our media prediction of third is certainly one of surprise, not because we aren't a good side but we feel we can compete for the title and sould be predicted to finish first.

Press Statement

Calvary FC would like to announce that they are happy to be joining the league.

Although Pre-Season was not the greatest of times for the club it is obvious that we have assembled a strong squad of players, and even though there has been a significant lack of new signings for the club since Martin O'Neil has taken charge this is by no means a sign of the clubs policy.

If O'Neil has taken this approach it shows that he has faith in the current staff at the club.

It is obvious that the Media have understated the club with a lowly predicition. However this will give the Manager, Players and Club as a whole the opportunity to perform without pressure.

Expect big things from the White of Calvary and don't be surprised if next year Champions League football returns to the club.

Am having issues with the Europa League. For some reason, since I tested it, it gets to the Fourth Qualifying Round and doesn't go no further. Hmm. It did before. I'm not restarting again so we'll have to see what happens with it. I'll have a look on FMRTE and see if I can change anything there but if not, we'll go without Europa League. Apologies to the teams who are supposed to be in it but I've done all the previews now so not restarting.

Obviously, the fact that I've noticed that tells you that I am busy with something ... Updates should follow later!

FIRST DAY OF THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE SEASON!

How will the 8 new sides fare in the Championship?

After weeks and weeks of waiting, the 2010-2011 Football League season finally kicked off this afternoon with a full programme of games scheduled for the Championship today. We’ve got the game between two of the newcomers, Saku FC and Ruff FC, live on SPORTS.tv later today but we start with a round-up of all the action involving the other six new T2B sides as they kicked off their lives in the Championship with all six of them facing tricky away trips to begin.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Bristol City vs. Horden All Stars

Ashton Gate

A dominant display from the Horden All Stars who had 19 shots on goal in comparison to the hosts 3 but a man of the match display from Robins’ keeper Dean Gerken limited them to just the one goal. That goal followed a goalless first half and arrived in the 58th minute as Boyata’s powerful forward header dropped into the path of DIEGO MILITO who powered past the defenders and deftly lobbed Gerken with the ball clipping the underside of the bar as it just dropped over the line. All Stars had several good chances to extend their lead but failed and they were made to pay with just seven minutes remaining. Maicon, Antonio Valencia and Dedryck Boyata all failed to stop Brett Pitman getting to the byline and his low cross was met by the sliding NICKY HUNT who turned the ball home at the far post. Plenty of positives for the Horden All Stars who deserved the three points but they will be disappointed to have conceded the late equaliser.

Derby County vs. A1 FC

Pride Park

Another side dominating the play away from home were A1 FC who outplayed Derby County at Pride Park after a terrible start. In just the 4th minute of the match, the home side shocked the large away following of A1 when following a one-two with Brayford, LUKE VARNEY coolly kept his composure and drilled the ball past Tim Howard and into the far corner. A shocking start to the season for A1 FC but they rallied to dominate the game from that moment but were frustrated to still be behind at half time. As the second half wore on, the desperation grew but A1 FC finally got themselves level on 68 minutes. Maynor Figueroa and Gareth Bale combined on the left, Figueroa floated a delicious ball over and YOANN GOURCUFF met the ball from six yards and guided it home to level the game. That was how it stayed and A1 FC begin with a point away from home.

Hull City vs. Lowen United

KC Stadium

A goalless first half at the KC Stadium with both sides cancelling each other out in a tight contest but the second half came to life after just 8 minutes of play as Lowen United managed to take the lead. A poor clearance from Liam Cooper for the Tigers hit Robert Koren in the head and Alan Tate was beaten to the ball by JUAN MANUEL MATA and the winger outpaced the defender before smashing hard and low past Matt Duke to make it 1-0 to the visitors. However, it took just 10 minutes for the Tigers to respond with an equaliser. Robert Koren lofted a glorious ball forward for Richard Garcia to run onto and his shot was blocked well by Petr Cech before running straight into the path of MATTY FRYATT who guided the ball into the empty net to the delight of the home fans. Both sides threw everything at each other from that point looking for the winner and it came with 7 minutes left. Loic Remy attacked down the right for Lowen United, his cross was flicked clear by Koren and it ran to SULLEY MUNTARI who controlled and then fired home into the top corner from 25 yards to secure three points for Lowen United on the opening day!

Leicester City vs. Dustbin Rovers

Walkers Stadium

Almost 32000 at the Walkers Stadium to see the Foxes face the Binmen on the opening day of the season in another tight game in the Championship. Things started well for the newcomers of Dustbin Rovers on 37 minutes when they went in front. Ben Arfa found David Villa who looked to be tripped in the box. However, the referee held on and allowed Peter Whittingham to cross low and he found SESSEGNON who guided into the corner with his left foot to make it 1-0 to the visitors. Leicester City were level by half time though as Jermaine Pennant’s left wing free kick wasn’t cleared properly and SCOTT SINCLAIR managed to turn the ball goalwards and into the corner to make it 1-1 at half time. Things stayed level until the winner arrived 3 minutes from time and it was a dreadfully unlucky goal to concede. Paul Gallagher skipped clear of the Rovers defence and looked to be in for a shot, James Collins made a superb last ditch tackle but the ball ran perfectly into the path of STEVE HOWARD and he had the easy task of sliding the ball into the empty net to give the Foxes an opening day victory.

Preston North End vs. Fareham Fallguys

Deepdale

Fareham Fallguys manager Roberto Di Matteo declared himself extremely frustrated after this result which in no way reflected the dominance of the visitors to Deepdale. Preston North End struck first with an early goal after just 4 minutes to take the lead as Taylor’s corner was not cleared properly and fell at the feet of PAUL HAYES three yards out to bundle over the line. Di Matteo is definitely set to be unhappy with the slow start to both halves as Preston extended their lead just 6 minutes after half time; he will also be unhappy with the referee. A long, hopeful ball forward by Calum Davidson was picked up by defender Paul Robinson who appeared to be tripped as he tried to clear but the referee allowed NATHAN ELLINGTON to play on and he drove past Kirkland to put North End 2-0 up. Fallguys dominance finally paid off on 61 minutes as Krasic’s corner from the right was headed home at the near post by SEBASTIEN BASSONG and it seemed a matter of time before the equaliser arrived. However, Preston shocked the visitors again as Taylor’s corner was headed home at the far post by SEAN ST. LEDGER highlighting issues at the back for Di Matteo to work on.

Sheffield United vs. Darlington Rangers

Bramall Lane

An even game at Bramall Lane in front of over 32,000 fans which provided excitement right until the final whistle as both sides went in search of a morale boosting opening day win. The Blades were in front on 36 minutes as winger MARK GOWER stepped up and curled a beautiful free kick over the wall and into the top corner of Matej Delac’s goal from 25 yards but by half time, Darlington Rangers were level. Tom Huddlestone played the ball forward, SERGIO AGUERO outpaced the defence and rounded Steve Simonsen before sliding the ball into the empty net to make it 1-1 at the break. It was Rangers who took the lead just after the hour as well with their second goal. Luke Modric curled over a delightful free kick and HUDDLESTONE climbed highest to nod past Simonsen for 2-1. Rangers looked to hold out and were on their way to doing so when disaster struck 5 minutes from time. Montgomery found STEPHEN QUINN 25 yards from goal and he curled past Delac perfectly to level the game at 2-2. However, deep in injury time, there was more to come with a winning goal for Rangers. Huddlestone’s 25 yard piledriver was blocked by Simonsen but it feel at the feet of SERGIO AGUERO who does not miss from six yards out and he ensured that Rangers would take 3 points from Bramall Lane on the opening day!

SAKU FC

vs.

RUFF FC

Welcome to the Saku Arena for the opening live game of the nPower Championship season as two of the big gun newcomers, Saku FC and Ruff FC, meet looking for victory on the opening day of the season. Carlo Ancelotti has yet to make a new signing during the summer preferring to stick to the squad of players that he has inherited from the chairman, Oskar Henno. It’s a similar story for Ruff FC and their new manager, Avram Grant, with both former Chelsea managers happy to go with what they have. Three points on the first day of the season is always a good feeling so which of these two will get the win today? Let’s find out the players that will be lining up today ...

SAKU FC (41212): Friedel, Arbeloa, Warnock, Skrtel, Bruma, Sandro, Essien, Keita, Ribery, Young, Suarez

SUBS: Munday, Shelvey, Ibrahim, Hessenthaler, Kadzidio, Henshall, Cross

A surprising line up from the home side as they opt for a narrow formation with Ashley Young deployed in a central striking position. Franck Ribery will play just behind the front two with Sandro the midfielder charged with protecting the defence. Five ex-Liverpool players are in the starting line up for Saku FC today.

RUFF FC (442): Begovic, Scharner, Pranjic, Alex, Puyol, Albrighton, Petrov, Parker, Adam, Forlan, Pazzini

SUBS: Pitt, Rothwell, Anyukov, Diaby, Piquionne, Constable, Delph

Ruff FC line up with a more conventional 442 but they will have to make sure that one of Scott Parker or Charlie Adam picks up Ribery as he floats in the space between their midfield and defence. Paul Scharner plays at right back and former Leeds youngster Fabian Delph makes his comeback from a serious injury with a place on the bench.

Join us for all the action next!

nPOWER CHAMPIONSHIP

Saturday August 7th, 2010, Saku Arena

The teams are out here at the Saku Arena and both sides will be desperate for the victory today as they seek to join the early, the very early, pacesetters at the top of the table. Preston North End hold the early top spot after their 3-1 win over Fareham Fallguys earlier this afternoon – which of these two will join them near the top on 3 points? Saku are wearing an all white strip this afternoon and will be playing in front of almost 60,000 here today, most of whom will wish to see a Saku victory. But it will be Ruff FC, with a large following behind the goal, who will kick off in their pink and blue strip, here we go!

SakuFCH.jpg----------RuffFCH.jpg

FIRST HALF

3

A challenge from behind from Sandro on Petrov earns the midfielder the first yellow card and gives Ruff FC a free kick on the left. The free kick comes to nothing and foward come Saku with Warnock, he slides the ball down the left for Young to use his speed. Into the box, tackle from Scharner ... PENALTY! Andy D’Urso’s assistant gives it, Saku FC have a penalty in the opening 4 minutes here!

4

It will be the French midfielder, Franck Ribery, against Asmir Begovic in the Ruff FC goal. Up he steps, right footed ... RIBERY scores, smashes it into the roof of the net, no chance for Begovic and it is 1-0 to the hosts!

GOAL!

SAKU FC 1-0 Ruff FC (Ribery, 4 pen)

6

Scott Parker wins the ball in midfield for Ruff FC, looking for a quick response here. Plays it forward to Diego Forlan, edge of the area and shoots ... Just over the bar!

17

Ball with Marc Albrighton on the right, he gets away from Warnock and plays the cross in low, confusion in the box, Adam is there, Pazzini is there, ball falls for FORLAN! He turns it home and Ruff FC are level! Instinctive finish from 4 yards from the Uruguayan, Forlan!

GOAL!

Saku FC 1-1 RUFF FC (Forlan, 17)

19

Here come Saku FC straight from the kick off! Young runs at the Ruff FC defence, good slide tackle from Puyol, straight to Luis Suarez. He slides the ball to Ribery, edge of the area, good feet from the Frenchman, he shoots ... just wide of the post! That had Begovic scrambling there!

26

Corner for Ruff FC from the left hand side, Pranjic with the outswinger ... Forlan is there, free header from four yards and Luis Suarez kicks it off the line! So close for Forlan!

29

Petrov with the free kick for Ruff FC who are on top right now. Curls it in from the left, another free header, Forlan heads over from six yards. That should have been 2-1!

30

Martin Petrov runs at Arbeloa on the left, cuts inside, drills the cross over low ... goes free at the back post, Forlan chases it, turns and fires low at goal ... off the post! Diego Forlan, so unlucky there! Arbeloa clears but here come Ruff FC again, Pranjic with the cross, Forlan again with the flick header, just over the bar!

34

Arbeloa with the throw, Keita gives it him back on the right wing for Saku FC. Low cross from the Spaniard, Ribery is there ... what a save by Begovic! Runs loose, Warnock hits it, off the foot of the post! Young is there now, he shoots, just wide! Great chance for Saku FC!

38

Essien has the ball for Saku, 35 yards out. He plays a ball down the right, Luis Suarez is away, shoots from a tight angle ... side netting! Should have looked to cross that really!

40

Ashley Young now running at Carles Puyol and Paul Scharner, they daren’t touch him as he gets into the box again. Young pulls it back at the byline, Essien is there ... shoots over, should have done better!

44

Suarez has the ball, finds Arbeloa. Good football from Saku FC as they find Essien in space, he slips it into the feet of Ribery, chance for a shot ... good save Begovic who pushes it out for a corner to deny the Frenchman!

45

Jeffrey Bruma jogs over to the left to take the corner for Saku FC, he swings it over to the near post and LUIS SUAREZ ... flick header past Begovic! Saku FC are back in front on the stroke of half time!

GOAL!

SAKU FC 2–1 Ruff FC (Suarez, 45)

45+2

Essien has the ball again for Saku FC, he finds Young, one on one with Scharner on the left. Scharner with the tackle, this time he gets the ball, runs to Suarez on the edge of the area, he is clipped by Adam and it’s a free kick on the edge of the ‘D’ for Saku FC ... It’s going to be Ribery to strike it, over the wall, just wide of Begovic’s right hand post.

HALF TIME

SAKU FC 2-1 RUFF FC

Saturday August 7th, 2010, Saku Arena

An amazing first half here at Saku Arena, how we only ended up with three goals is beyond me! Both sides seem intent on attacking each other and it’s made for a great game with Ribery putting Saku FC in front on 4 minutes from the spot, Forlan levelling for Ruff FC on 17 and then missing several glorious chances to extend the lead before Luis Suarez’ flicked header on the stroke of half time means that it is the home side who lead 2-1 at half time. Let us hope that the second half is just as action packed as the first shall we?

SakuFCH.jpg----------RuffFCH.jpg

SECOND HALF

48

Early corner from the left for Ruff FC as they search for an equaliser, Pranjic whips it in there, Forlan with the header at goal, hits his own man in Paul Scharner. Scharner control in the 6 yard box and lays it back to Alex who strikes it well, well stopped by Friedel in the Saku FC goal!

53

Another corner for Ruff FC who are throwing everything at Saku FC here. Pranjic takes it, Forlan gets there with another header, just over from ten yards out. Forlan is winning headers in the box for fun here!

54

Seydou Keita has the ball in the centre circle, he plays it out to Arbeloa on the right hand side for Saku FC. Inside it goes to Ribery, first time ball into space, Luis Suarez is in on goal again ... SUAREZ slides it past Begovic, 3-1 to Saku FC!

GOAL!

SAKU FC 3-1 Ruff FC (Luis Suarez, 54)

57

Ruff FC come forward down the left with Daniel Pranjic, he plays it back to the sub, Anyukov who clips the ball over, Petrov gets there with the header ... clips the bar and over!

58

Good running from Martin Petrov down the left, beats Keita and Skrtel out wide, plays the cross over into the six yard box ... there is DIEGO FORLAN, smashes it past Friedel, Ruff FC are back in the game!

GOAL!

Saku FC 3-2 RUFF FC (Forlan, 58)

61

Stephen Warnock has the ball for Saku FC on the left, halfway up the pitch ... he finds Ashley Young, clipped inside for Ribery. He slides the ball through inch perfect yet again, Luis Suarez through on goal again ... SUAREZ scores for Saku FC! They lead by two goals again and Luis Suarez has a debut hat-trick for Saku FC!

GOAL!

SAKU FC 4-2 Ruff FC (Suarez, 61)

65

Pranjic with the free kick again for Ruff FC, in it goes, headed away well by Saku FC. Anyukov picks it up and plays it back to Pranjic on the left, he cuts inside and hits a stunning effort from 30 yards ... tipped past the post by Friedel, that was heading for the top corner!

69

Carles Puyol hits the free kick forward for Ruff FC towards Forlan, Warnock has it covered here ... Forlan wins it, was that a foul? No, says the referee, Piquionne picks it up and plays it across the six yard box, here is Petrov with the low drive, parried wide by Friedel!

70

Anyukov has a throw in on the right for Ruff FC who are desperate for a way back into this game now. Thrown to Forlan, back to Anyukov, he drills a cross over from deep ... PAZZINI glances the header past Friedel and Ruff FC are back in the game again! Lovely header from the Italian striker into the bottom corner of the goal, 4-3, game on!

GOAL!

Saku FC 4-3 RUFF FC (Pazzini, 70)

72

Saku FC on the attack, trying to restore their two goal lead. Arbeloa with the low cross from the right, Alex has it but lose it to Suarez, he shoots ... blocked by Begovic and cleared away from danger by Pranjic!

84

Ribery with the free kick on the right, clips it over to the far post, Suarez with the header ... Begovic stops it with the help of the crossbar, ball loops up, Bruma tries to force it home, Scott Parker saves the day for Ruff FC!

87

Ruff FC have a throw on the right with Anyukov. Forlan plays it him back, he crosses again but this time Saku FC head it clear and Young comes away with the ball. Finds Essien in the centre circle, Saku FC slow it down ... Into Ribery, another perfect ball forward, here we go again ... LUIS SUAREZ ... chips it up and over Begovic and into the net, surely the winning goal now! What a combination Saku FC have here with Ribery making the passes and Luis Suarez who just does not miss!

GOAL!

SAKU FC 5-3 Ruff FC (Suarez, 87)

That goal has knocked the stuffing out of Ruff FC at last and the game peters out through injury time until Andy D’Urdo blows the final whistle to signal the end of a fabulous game!

FULL TIME

SAKU FC 5-3 RUFF FC

Wow! What a superb first live game of the season for SPORTS.tv, so much attacking flair on both sides and what a pity that Ruff FC had to be a loser in that game. A phenomenal performance from both teams but in particular the combination of Franck Ribery and Luis Suarez for Saku FC, how many goals will that provide this season? If they play like that all season, Saku FC will easily be promoted from the Championship this season! However, Ruff FC should not be too downhearted after a cracking performance going forward. The partnership of Diego Forlan and Giampaulo Pazzini looks impressive and the performance of full back Daniel Pranjic should give the Ruff FC fans some hope as they head home tonight.

We’ll leave you with the goals from the match!

The More Thing Change, The More They Stay The Same

A typical sight was seen at Verizon International Stadium as Hryhori Zahorchak took to the stand today to finally get around to introducing his players and manager for the upcoming season. What was originally intended as a friendly media event, quickly turned sour once the Chairman opened the floor to questions.

Most notably when asked about his team's projected 8th place finish, it was clear that the words of Sports.tv anchor Sid Smash still rang in the mind of the former manager of the club.

"What does this network even know about football anyway. Underneath my good friend Danilo Uljarevic, the team was projected to finish 15th in it's first season. Instead we won the FA Cup and finished second in the league! I still remember what that idiot Smash said, 'New Bloc will play a boring brand of football, but they will look nice in their pink shirts.' What a total joker he is. If I ever see him in public I'm going to give him a piece of my mind and a foot in the ass."

When asked about the team, New Bloc manager Chris Hughton, last seen emerging from a cave after managing Aston Villa in the shortest Premiership season ever said the following. "Well, we are staying true to the team philosophy. Very talented at the back with Srna, Criscito, Godin, and Ferdinand. Midfield has some quality, namely Arshavin and our star man Iniesta. Is there a problem up top, that's not for me to say. Andrew is a very talented player, so the possibility of only playing one man up top is there for sure."

After words, Zahorchak and Hughton trotted out Andy Carroll, Andres Iniesta, Andrey Arshavin, Danijo Srna, and Rio Ferdinand in the new kits for the season, designed by Kappa, and sponsered by stadium sponser Verizon.

NewBlocH.jpgNewBlocA.jpg

As the press conference came to a close a reporter asked a question to Zahorchak for comment on the opponent on Sports.tv game of the week, ShakhtarSenseless, rumors that he burned a picture of Sir Alex Ferguson and said "His legacy is going up in smoke" are being denied by New Bloc PR, but the fact that a fire truck appeared minutes after the press conference ended makes us believe otherwise.

Stay tuned to NBOnline.com, the home for all things New Bloc F.C.

Well here we have it the first interview with the newly appointed manager of Stratford Rangers Gianfranco Zola. Welcome Gianfranco to the hotseat:

images-6.jpg

So Gianfranco how do you feel having been made favourites for the title?

Well if i'm honest i find that quite funny if i'm honest with you. I am very proud to have been appointed as manager by

William, but to be made favourites is something i wasn't expecting. I have faith in the squad and believe we have a good squad of players who will push the very best in the league.

You must be pleased with the quality you have managed to recruit to bolster your squad?

images-2.jpg

Well i have managed to get in 4 players, but if i'm honest i'm looking for 6, so you may see a little more activity before the window closes. Let me introduce you to our new recruits.

Firstly, i would like to introduce you to Thomas Kahlenberg.

Thomas is a sesoned International who will provide a stern cutting edge to our Midfield, creating a real competition for places. Next up is Razvan Rat.

He, like Thomas, has vast experience at the highest levels of the game.

And finally we have our marque signing, Diego Tardelli.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Diego, he is going to add real quality to our strikeforce and push us on to the next level. We have also added Joey Barton, but unfortunately he will be unable to attend.

So, can you elaborate on why Joey isn't here?

images-4.jpg

Well, if i'm honest with you he has been taken into custody over the recent disturbances in Tottenham. He is believed to be one of the ring leaders, however, we are not allowed to give any more information at this time.

Does this mean he will miss the opening to the season?

I hope not, he has been causing me a few headaches to be honest with you!

How do you think you will fair in the Community Shield?

To be honest with you, i'm not sure it'll be a tough game, but i think we have sufficient quality to win.

Well the best of luck for the season, i hope we are able to reflect on a very successful season when i talk to you at the end of the season.

I hope so too! Thank you for kind words.

Was going to say, being defeated by PNE is very tough to take indeed, Di Matteo would not be happy about this.

Plus why is Kirkland first choice, he's crocked put Mignolet or my boy Steele on instead?!

Great work GCB! An impressive pre-season encouraged optimism from myslelf before scrolling down to be met by a thrashing from Spartak ZV and then a generous 6th place predicition was probably placed there to get my hopes up even more...:)

It's been a busy week for me and it looks like it'll be just like the last this week as well. I'll do a good write up once I have the proper time :(

"With the start of the season, we are yet to see Kaldera Tryn of FC Freljord to speak to us. Last reports claim he is working most of his time to run the club efficiently and get off to a good start. More to follow when we manage to get hold of the new chairman of Freljord. Stay tuned!" - sportseye.net

Really man, seriously? Sorry that GCB hasn't done anything recently, he's probably been busy doing other things, like life. Oh, and I'm sorry what have you contributed to the thread so far, ah yes, nothing at all.

It's this kind of attitude that really gets people down in a sign-up. I get that you are new, but if you've looked back at the things GCB has done you'd realize that he's one of the best people at running sign-ups. Everything GCB does in-thread takes time, because he also relies on us to contribute our own things as well.

Normally I wouldn't get this upset, but you are attacking someone who I truly respect on this forum and one of my true friends here. If you can't contribute to this in any way except complaining I strongly recommend you turn back now and join a less involved sign-up.
