Welcome back ! It was interesting to follow the Lions holiday activities on We Chat ! From surfing to skiing and fishing. Of course the hard core Lions stayed in Shanghai and trained hard to improve themselves. Now the holiday is over and the year of the horse has arrived. The year of the horse stands for a powerful and energetic year and that combined with the Lions should give us a great year of football and friendship!
We have two important games this weekend and hope that all the Lions start with the right focus.
On Saturday we will face DIB for the third time this season and this time it’s the quarter final of the SIFL Cup. After we managed to keep the three point cushion in our favor with a 1-1 draw against them in the SIFL League just before the CNY we will have to kick them out of the Cup. We all know that Cup games are different and special. Most of the time the team with the strongest fighting spirit will take the win in a cup fight. No matter how the ranking is in the league. We need to show them that we are hungry for success this season and nothing better than to be motivated against DIB.
On Sunday we will play the Bulls. They have won 5 out of their last 7 games and will do “anything” to get a result out of this game. We should stay ahead and play one of our best games of the season and let the other teams drop points against the Bulls.
This should be enough motivation for all of you to come to the training and be ready for the big games of the weekend !
