Hebiguchi Cup Quarterfinals

Shanghai 3United were pitted against current holders of the H-Cup Big Bamboo Shanghai Shooters AFC. Shooters started quickly and despite the bumpy field managed to carve out some chances, but couldn’t find a finishing touch as 3United defended well. 

Eventually however the pressure told as Simon Moore crossed in finding Roland Broughton for a tap in for 0-1. One became two as Broughton turned provider lofting a ball over the 3United backline for Kevin Wiessler to run on to and finish for 0-2. Halftime whistle went with the Shooters leading comfortably. 

The second half began and the Shooters quickly increased their lead to three as Mike McGirr back heeled in a loose ball in the box from a corner for 0-3. After this the game became more stretched as 3U attacked more to get themselves back into the game and the Shooters looked to add more goals. 

3United were the more successful playing two through balls which Oraz Arslanow beat the Shooter defenders to twice and slotted home to make the score line 2-3. In the end however it was too little too late and the game finished 2-3 seeing the Shooters advance to the semifinal. Wilson Scott received man of the match honors. 

   


Voodoo Child did battle with Shanghai Japan FC. As the only first division team left in the cup, VC were carrying the hopes of the league. VC had been on a strong recruitment drive in the week leading up, to make up for the loss of Jesus and disciples. 

However with a strong squad assembled and Greg Sicardi using words in the pre-match team talk rather than mime, VC entered the game confidently. That quickly changed with the Japanese picking up a free kick early and scoring with a well-directed Yo Inoue header at the front post taking a 0-1 Japan lead. 

The Japanese continued to keep the ball well and move through VC. VC were also struggling playing into the sun and this caused the defense to make some small insignificant errors. Therewere not many chances for the first half as the VC defense was tested but managed to keep shots down to a minimum. Just before the end of the half Greg Sicardi left the field and like any old footballer was taken to a place in the sky that footballers go when they get to a certain age. 

At the start of the second half, Minion made his long awaited return after an 18-month absence with a hamstring injury, this was soon put to the test by Jules Goodes who gave him a 40-meter sprint straight away. VC were able to keep the ball better and a golden chance fell to the golden hair boy Phil Boyle, however he decided to continue from his pre-match routine of kicking ballsinto orbit. 

Then, with Lasse Aamodt winning a 50:50 just outside his own box he played a ball down the right side for Luuk Drediette to sprint after. He crossed the ball in for Liam Redican to smash it into the net evening out the score at 1-1 with 5mins to go. 

Five minutes passed and it was onto penalties. VC missed, Japan scored, VC missed, Japan scored, VC scored, Japan scored, VC missed and Japan won the shootout 1-3 advancing to the semis. Yasutomo Toyofuku and Luuk Drediette picked up man of the match honors. Kam: “Special mention for Ben and if anyone has seen where the ball finally landed it would be greatly appreciated if you could return to VC.” 


Shanghai Lions FC faced Shanghai United. The Russians ran out of moonshine on Friday and started drinking tractor fuel. They were still drinking on Saturday and threw the match. The Lions won 5-0. Misha (left): “We have best moonshine in the world its God’s will we must be happy.”


Shanghai ReUnited were up against Azzurri FC in their quarters. The men in blue put in a solid performance on the day. In the first half they played compact football followed with quick attacking midfield play. Their dominance paid off when they attacked over the left. Keeper Cody Ahlstrom saved an initial shot but Patrick Arbeloa was in the right place to convert the rebound for a 0-1 Azzurri lead at halftime. 

Azzurri deservedly doubled their lead in the second half when they caught ReU on the break and Alex Brown slammed home a hard low drive for 0-2. ReUnited never really looked like getting back and Azzurri simply played out the match. Alex Brown picked up man of the match honors. 

It was ReUnited’s first loss of the season and they were all shook by it. Herr Flick: “Helga must be punished and redo the Gestapo exam.” To celebrate their win and place in the semis, Azzurri went to Cages – Shanghai’s Number 1 Sports Bar!


SIFL Cup Qualifiers 

Long Tang AFC crossed swords with the Anzacs FC. Long Tang came out with all guns blazing. The Anzacs were no easy pushover in the first half and were able to do some damage of their own. The half ended with a 4-2 score line. 

In the second half, the floodgates opened completely and Long Tang waltzed through the Anzacs defense at ease scoring at will. The contested ended with Long Tang 10 and Anzacs 2. 

With five goals Jinfu Gan received man of the match honors. Ahamad Meouloud netted two, Yi Ding, Liang Shan and Kai Sun scored one each. Chris Lloyd and Abdul Zarouel scored for the Anzacs. 


Happy FC locked horns with Kangbei United FC. Both teams came to win but focused on squid defense to try and keep the nil in the first half. They succeeded in that as the first 45mins ended in a 0^0 spectacle score. 

In the second half, focus switched to attack mode and Kangbei were clearly better at finishing as they managed to score four times versus HFC’s one goal. The game ended with a final 1-4 score line. Wei Xue scored once while Juan Jose scored a hattrick and promptly picked up man of the match honors. Feng Tang scored for HFC.

Premier League

Big Bamboo Shanghai Shooters AFC beat Shanghai Krauts FC. Shanghai Lions FC edge out Shanghai 3United (above). Azzurri FC win versus Shanghai Japan FC. Shanghai United defeat FC Oranje.

First Division

Shanghai Cosmos beat Shanghai Tianfu FC. Voodoo defeat Anzacs FC. Voodoo Child edge out Happy FC. Shanghai Vikings win versus Kangbei United FC. 


In the Premier League, the Shanghai Krauts FC faced league leaders Big Bamboo Shanghai Shooters AFC. A large Shooter squad lined up against the Germans who were short of a few defenders. Once the game started this became very apparent. The Shooters attacked quickly and the makeshift German defense struggled to deal with them. 

Before long Tom Webster, who was terrorizing the German full back all game, crossed deep for the opposite winger Wilson Scott to smash home on the half volley for 0-1. One became two as Simon Moore threaded a ball through to Mike McGirr who finished after initially dummying and leaving two Germans behind him for 0-2. 

Kevin Weissler made it three after bringing down Paolini’s lofted ball on the edge of the box and finishing nicely with his left for 0-3. The Shooters then had two more goals disallowed, one for no obvious reason at all, but 0-3 the half ended. 

The second half began with the Shooters once more pressuring the German goal with not much coming back in response. It became 0-4 when Benoit Doche casually half volleyed in a rebound that fell to him on the edge of the box. 

Stefan Sturm (above) made it five soon after; heading in a Simon Moore cross from a tight angle at the near post, despite a defenders best efforts to keep it out for 0-5. Stanislav Korchazhinkii managed to score a late consolation goal with the last kick of the game for the Germans for a final 1-5 score line. Tom Webster earned man of the match honors.

Dictator Bilgin G.: “When Dictator is on pitch no one scores. But our own 250kg South African Cape buffalo goalkeeper got me injured and he should have received a red card.” Zippy: “Is your name Willy Nilly?” 


Shanghai 3United did battle with the Shanghai Lions FC. It was cold but a clear blue sky with no pollution in sight. The pitch was difficult to play on after last week’s heavy rain. 

The Lions had a small squad with many players not available and were set to revenge the first encounter versus 3U, which 3U won at the start of the season. 

Lions’ motivation ran high to make up for the earlier loss. Both teams opted to leave a gap in the midfield as the defenders decided to stay deep. Lions played on the counter and created several chances. It was Romain Haution who opened the score taking a 0-1 Lions lead. 

3United didn’t have a shot on target but were awarded a penalty. Nick Law took the ensuing spot kick sending it in the left corner to make it 1-1 just before halftime. In the second half, the Lions improved their game with more combination football. 

They were awarded a penalty halfway in the half. Haution took the spot kick for the French but the 3U keeper stopped his effort to the bemusement of the spectators. Agajan Nyyazberdiyev played one of his best games, went thru the right wing several times and got fouled in the box for a spot kick to give the Lions a second chance to take back the lead. 

Felix Vroegop stood up and scored from the spot to make it 1-2. 3United tried to come back but didn’t pose any danger and the Lions hung on to a hard fought victory. Agajan Nyyazberdiyev received man of the match honors. 


Azzurri FC lined up to play versus Shanghai Japan FC. In-form Japan held the champions to a draw the week before and were hoping to build on their good form of late. 

Azzurri had other plans and put in a very a consistent performance. Kwame Agyei-Owusu opened the scoring sending the men in blue 1-0 up and that’s how the first half ended. 

Japan tried to do something back in the second half, the game went back and forth but were unable to stop the Kwame show.  Kwame was able to double Azzurri’s lead to 2-0 and that’s how the contest ended with Kwame picking up man of the match honors. Kwame: “It was a great win I scored nicely Kwame is the name!” 


Shanghai United were pitted against FC Oranje. Most of play took place in the midfield in the opening phase of the match. United’s spirit, and determination increased dramatically when new look Igor Tsudin showed up with moonshine and took between the posts. It was a mental boost for the Russians and they not going to be denied. 

About half hour in, the United effort paid off when from a through ball Ricker Alexander lobbed it over the onrushing keeper for 0-1. United kept pushing and the Alexander was at it again when he got the ball on the right and blasted it in the net for 2-0. 

The Dutch pushed for a goal and created several bankable chances. First, from a corner Hope Xu took aim but the United keeper stood in the way. Soon after that Mubanga Vwaliki had two giant chances to score but keeper Tsudin had other thoughts and made some brilliant saves. 

Just before halftime, Daniyar Dumanuly received the ball just over the halfway line. His rush forward over the left was met little resistance as he played himself free before the keeper then slotted home at the far post for a 3-0 United lead at halftime. 

United kept going in the second half and straight from kick off scored their fourth when they captured the ball in the middle. A quick counter was what followed and Alexander completed his hattrick with a strike at the far post for 4-0. Andrey Kravchenko then made it 5-0. 

Towards the end the Dutch started playing with four strikers and finally were able to get a ball in the net. Mubanga Vwaliki was successful in his third attempt at goal with a fine action for 5-1. 

Oranje had the last chance of the match when Tank Zhang found himself eye-to-eye with keeper Tsudin. The keeper denied him (above) and 5-1 it stayed with United picking up three valuable points. Igor Tsudin received man of the match honors for his heroic antics on and off the pitch. Thanks for the moonshine mate!

It was Anton Devine’s (#13) last match for United. Above with Igor Tsudin, Ricker Alexander, Mubanga Vwaliki, Andrey Kravchenko and Daniyar Dumanuly. The orange franchise went on the Cages where they celebrated match number 580-a new record in Shanghai. Oranjeboom was there. But not before we all drank to Nicolai Filatov’s (below 2nd left) birthday with beers and authentic Russian moonshine!


In the First Division, leagues leaders Shanghai Cosmos were slotted againstShanghai Tianfu FC. Cosmos started well and were able to expand taking a 1-0 lead at halftime. 

They continued with dominating football in the second half and were able to score another three goals. Tianfu saved honors via a Mingda Ye strike. Man of the match Jonny Sellars (2), Jordan Campbell and Adam Stringer scored for Cosmos. 


Voodoo Child slugged it out with Happy FC. VC went into the game hoping to build on their good run of victories and the recent hard fought derby win versus Voodoo. There were some changes needed with the return of the Cossack and Santa following some Xmas commitments. 

Thankfully VC were boosted by the return of brave Paul Waller playing through the pain of a ‘skiers thumb’. Despite a run of six wins and promise to be ‘good cop’, Kam decided to lay into the defense before the game unveiling some bizarre pre-match drills for the team to complete. 

The game began with VC well on top and playing some good football from the backline through the midfield. However despite dominating possession and coming close to scoring with a Waller one on one, Santa header & Fat Nick effort, VC could not find a way through. 

HFC were happy to play on the break and showed little going forward but did threaten through Nogoods stray passing and from some good distance shooting. The first half ended with a 0-0 score line 

At halftime, Kam (above with Putin) continued his policy of good cop by telling off Disney Dave for saying that we were playing well and the team came out determined to break the deadlock. It continued in the same style with VC dominating while frustrations began to show as Waller continued to misfire. 

However with 15mins to go the deadlock was broken after Irish Andy ran through, bottled the shot initially, but somehow got another chance, which he dispatched taking a 1-0 VC lead. 

All of VC believed that would be it but HFC quickly responded following an excellent shot from distance by Qifa Li which struck the bar then was tapped in evening out the score 1-1. 

With 10mins remaining VC increased their efforts and fully enforced their gegenpress on HFC winning the ball back immediately and forcing numerous corners and free kicks. This effort was matched by the bench as Nogood eagerly fetched balls, people shouted encouragements and Kam almost broke out of mute mode. 

Finally with the clock ticking, Nasty Arod delivered the best corner of the game and Paul Waller moved from villain to hero by bundling in the winner from a yard and a 2-1 VC lead. Despite scoring with just 30 seconds on the clock VC fully deserved the points against a spirited but fair Happy FC side. Andy Graydon picked up man of the match honors. 


The Anzacs FC crossed swords with Voodoo. It was a game that made everyone involved wished they had got suspended the week before as the lowest placed foreign teams played out 90mins that went a long way to explaining their league positions. 

The two threadbare squads were more interested in moaning than playing football at the outset but the atmosphere improved and what the neutrals would have called ‘an old-school English battle’ broke out. That is to say that this was not a classic. The teams were split by an Anzacs own goal from a corner at the half for 0-1 with a host of chances that were wasted at either end

The second half was better with three goals including one direct from a Damo Pilat corner putting Voodoo two goals to the good before stand-in keeper Maxuel Neuer – Voodoo’s 46th keeper of the season – smashing a clearance into stand-in centre half Sam Woollard to reduce the deficit 1-2. 

Jonny White made it 1-3 to finish the scoring but only because he refused to pass to Diego, playing his final game for Voodoo before moving to Miami to sell guns to drug dealers. Good luck to him and to Eric Fransen (above), who shattered his cheekbone during the game. Damo Pilat received man of the match honors. 


Kangbei United FC locked horns with the Shanghai Vikings FC. The Vikings were in fine form and dominated the match from the start. They were able to open the scoring taking a 0-1 lead. Before the half was over Kangbei’s keeper had to fish the ball out of the net another time for a 0-2 Vikings lead at halftime. 

In the second half, Kangbei tried to do something back but were unable to find a hole in the sturdy Danish defense. The Vikings took the foot of the pedal and played out the match for a final 0-2 score line. Adebowale Adewale and Janus Olsen scored the Viking goals. Henrik Kragh received man of the match honors.

In the Premier League, the Big Bamboo Shanghai Shooters AFC crossed swords with Shanghai United. Rain and mud greeted the two teams for their first game of 2017. Neither was put off by the weather though and lined up ready to run off the Christmas break excesses.

The Shooters quickly took control of the first half with some direct football and plenty of wing play. It wasn’t long before the flood gates opened with Kevin Wiessler (above) bagging a pure hattrick, Roland Broughton scored two, Mike McGirr and Wilson Scott a goal a piece to make it 7-0 for the Shooters after 45mins of play. 

A quick halftime change around saw Broughton ring in the changes for the Shooters with several players coming in off the bench. Wiessler scored a lovely 25 yard drive straight in to the bottom corner before Scott found the net twice more to get his hattrick for 10-0. Stefan Sturm also bagged one to make it 11. 

United kept on battling and towards the end of the game started to find a bit more rhythm. This led to them scoring too late consolation goals through Temirkhan Adil’s head and a nice curling effort from outside the box by Zhanbolat.

The game finished 11-2 in favor of the Shooters who went off to the Big Bamboo to celebrate their first win of 2017. Mike McGirr earned man of match honors. 


Shanghai Japan FC lined up to play the Shanghai Puxi Lions FC. It took both teams around 15mins to adjust to the apocalyptic pitch. Japan dominated the opening phase and were dangerous on several occasions with unpredictable long balls over the flanks that abused the Lions’ defenders. 

Luckily, Lions keeper Radouane Guissi showcased classy saves on a few occasions. After a while the French started to play a bit more direct. It proved to be the right tactic with Romain Haution, David Rosenberg and Felix Vroegop excelling on the exercise. 

About 20mins in, the Lions took a 0-1 lead when Xu Lin scored from a loose ball from a cross over the left. Ten minutes later, a clearance from Japan keeper ended up directly at Kevin Bertille’s feet. He immediately volleyed the ball back lobbing it over Japanese keeper from the 35 meters out doubling the French lead to 0-2 and that’s how the first half ended. 

In the second half, the Lions opted to play on the side of the pitch to avoid the middle pitch no-men’s land. They weren’t able to do that very well then resorted to playing their traditional way. Japan got a goal back when Yasutomo Toyofuku scored the 1-2 on a brawl from a corner. 

With 30mins to go the Lions reorganized somewhat and the game continued with limited opportunities on either side. With the pitch conditions deteriorating rapidly both teams opted to shoot from distance and play long crosses. Japan proved to be the better at that and managed to even out the score with a fantastic header 3mins from time by Tomoyuki Hirai. The game ended in a 2-2 draw. 

Takuya Nakano received man of the match honors for Japan while Kevin Bertille received these honors for the Lions. Freek Boelen: “If you shoot for the title you must win 1-2 but we had to settle for a draw and that tastes like defeat.”


Shanghai ReUnited did battle with the Shanghai Krauts FC. ReUnited stayed tight with the Shooters at the top of the table following another fine victory over a dangerous Krauts team. The Krauts pushed ReU hard at first and took the 0-1 lead when they beat the offside trap for their winger to slot home. 

ReUnited responded well though but missed some great chances before Essien Foba tapped home the equalizer at the far post after fantastic work from Sascha Höltke for 1-1. The German team could easily have found the net again but they missed some chances and at the other end it was ReUnited that went ahead when Nick Waters converted from close range to make it 2-1.  

ReUnited were soon pegged back when a goal kick got stuck in the water and after a scrap in the mud, a deflected shot flew in the goal for a 2-2 score line after 45mins of football. In the second half, ReUnited regrouped and were determined to keep fighting.

The contest became cagier and ReU took the lead through another Essien goal midway through for 3-2. The Krauts launched a final offense but ReUnited saw the game out without too much drama. Burak Tuncay and William Walker scored for the Krauts. Steve Ishemezwe received man of the match honors. 

ReU player José María Argüello and 3U player Ignacio “Nacho” Abelaire (above) played their last games for the club. They are going back to Spain to become full-fledged bullfighters. Good luck guys and thanks for the inspiration. 


FC Oranje battled it out with Shanghai 3United. With several late cancelations including the keeper, the orange franchise started with Billboard Bus between the sticks. Cages, China Challenge, Orange Plastics, KCL Foods, Beyond Relocation, Xindao, Infinity, Oranjeboom and the Radisson Blu Hong Quan all thought it was a great idea!

Oranje did well in the opening phase but 3United slowly encroached onto Dutch territory and midway through the half it yielded when Joe Williams received the ball on the right. He moved towards the box forcing the goalie to the near post. He then played to the freestanding Markus Birgler at the penalty spot who simply played the ball in the open goal taking a 0-1 3U lead. 

Oranje had a chance to equalize towards the end of the half but it was not to be a 0-1 it stayed after 45mins of quality football. In the second half, Oranje regrouped somewhat and were able to mobilize Daan van Eijkel in his last match for the Dutch. He almost scored from close range but unfortunately for him and the world his four efforts went wide. 

3United continued attacking and Joe Williams got the ball on the right side of the box. His shot found the net at the far post for 0-2. Not long after that 3U were awarded a penalty. Despite some great moves by the keeper, Nick Law coolly converted for 0-3. 

A fourth goal came from Oraz Arslanow for a final 0-4 score line. Nick Law received man of the match honors. Oranje went on to Cages to celebrate new match & cap records. Goal scorers below: Oraz Arslanow, Nick Law, Joe Williams and Markus Birgler with Tom Bus thank you very much!


In the First Division, the Shanghai Vikings FC locked horns with Shanghai Cosmos in the battle for top spot. Cosmos were looking to extend their winning run to six games, but having watched the last 20mins of the Voodoo derby puddle fest, this was never going to be a free flowing game of football. 

Cosmos started positively and left-winger Connor Maye, seemed to cope well with the conditions by employing a chipping technique he had probably perfected during his Gaelic football career. On the 16th minute, it was Maye’s deep cross that allowed Jasper Verdam to open the scoring with an expert header taking a 0-1 Cosmos lead. 

The Vikings evened out the score at the half hour mark when their striker broke down the left. His cross came back off the bar and fell at the feet of a Vikings player for a simple finish for 1-1. Soon after that the Cosmos retook the lead when Maye’s corner lead to scramble and Jack Greenwell headed in at the third attempt for 1-2. 

An assist hattrick for Maye as his chip over the top stopped in the mud and allowed Jordan Campbell to toe-poke the ball under the keeper for a 1-3 Cosmos lead at halftime. The Vikings rallied at halftime and came out fighting in the second half. They won a corner early on in the half that led to a scramble and Waigaoqiao’s GDS decided the ball had crossed the line for 2-3. 

The Vikings applied more pressure looking for the equalizer. With about 10mins on the clock they attempted a short corner routine, only for Matthieu Jouan to intercept and play in Adam Stringer. Stringer outpaced the tiring Vikings defense and finished into the bottom corner for 2-4. 

The Vikings hadn’t finished though and after being awarded and contentious free kick towards the end, their captain (#21) curled the ball brilliantly into the top corner for 3-4. Cosmos then almost self destructed by passing the ball straight to the Vikings from the proceeding kickoff. 

Jonny Sellars won back possession and played in Jordan Campbell to seal the win with a fine strike for 3-5. Stefan Søgaard, Peter Gullak and Rasmus Andersen scored the Vikings goals. Jordan Campbell received man of the match honors. 


Voodoo slugged it out with Voodoo Child in a Camel Pub derby. Both teams were depleted and looking overweight following the festive period, especially Jesus but with the exception of Arod, nasty Arod. VC like to play the underdog in the derbies although league placements suggested otherwise, and it was looking a bit desperate sat morning, a couple of late drop outs. 

A keeper still out due to a very lengthy and ongoing frigging related illness and the Cossack away following advice from Nogood. Luckily, VC have stalwarts to rely on in the form of Gordy and Milton fresh from having zero minutes of game time in the past year. 

VC set out 4-4-2 as always, Irish the winger getting his shot at the big time with little Jesus in the middle. They did their running around thing and breaking up play, to let Kev and the other attackers terrorize the Voodoo back three. 

Twenty minutes gone and 0-2 to VC a big score was looking on the cards. However over confidence and in-game analysis by Jules set in, it was quickly 2-2 and all the hard work was gone. But there is a new resilience in VC this year and they struck back to make it 3-2 only to concede again from another set piece for 3-3 and all square at halftime.

The second half was a slugfest, challenges flying in that weren’t so pleasing on the eye and the ref had no choice but to brandish a few reds. Nothing really to choose between the teams until nasty Arod broke clear to get felled in the box, Jesus stepped up to convert the penalty sending VC up 3-4. Voodoo had a chance to tie the game in the dying seconds but the effort hit the post and VC hung on to victory and the spoils.

Ned Kelly rolling back the years with another fine performance scoring a second hattrick in as many games (especially his second goal was a bit special) and made some new Voodoo history which I’m sure he will remind us of for years to come.

Jack Webster, Jonny White and Jordan scored for Voodoo. Andrew Rodriguez received man of the match honors. Phil Boyle: “The greatness of Ned Kelly determined the result on the pitch and everyone was in awe of the man behind the mask.”


Long Tang AFC crossed swords with Kangbei United FC. Both teams started well and found the net once for a 1-1 score at halftime. In the second half it was the Jackson Katta show as he singlehandedly demolished the Long Tang defense with 6 goals! 

When all the dust had settled Kangbei had won the contest 1-7 with not surprisingly Katta picking up man of the match honors. Long Tang’s honor was saved with a fine Yi Ding strike.  


Happy FC were pitted against Shanghai Tianfu FC. HFC started very well and pushed Tianfu back to their own half. HFC’s dominance paid off in the first half, as they were able to get five passed the Tianfu keeper for a 5-0 lead at halftime. 

HFC took the foot of the pedal a bit in the second half focusing on defense. No more goals were scored and HFC simply played out the match wining it 5-0. Guobin Xi scored a pure hattrick while his colleagues Linlin Cen and Jie Gu netted one each. Guobin Xu received man of the match honors.
