Last friendly game before SIFL kick-off

Because they liked the level of the previous game and our way to play football, the Ex-professional want to play again this coming Saturday at Luwan. The 1st game they won 5-4 and the 2nd one we won 4-3. So it’s time to find a real winner and also it’s a good occasion to prepare the game vs DIB next week.

We are not ready yet and i think we should all come Saturday.  We don’t have other options. Some of you didn’t showed up at the training so we expect you guys to come and be there.

Please confirm as soon as possible your availability for Saturday.

It was a busy Saturday for the Lions this 24th of August, 2013. In the evening, Lions were honored to play a friendly versus a team composed of Chinese ex-professional football stars such as Zheng Kewei (郑科伟) and Gong Lei (宫磊).

Lions’ bench was a little short in depth and we lost this friendly game 5-4 (2-2 in the 1st half). Although our team was much younger, our opponents proved us that touch, class and skills matter in football… Yes, we did run after the ball but it was a very friendly atmosphere and we hope to renew the experience soon.

A studious weekend for the Lions

Lions,

[ Friendly ] Lions 7-0 Gremio (26 Jan 2013)

On Saturday we played a friendly as we wanted to stay focus for the title race! The opponent the Hawks/Gremio from the SPL were chosen in order to be well prepared to play versus DIB next month. We were goalie-less as Dim pulled out last moment but we discovered hidden goalie talent, especially Gwen and Allan were impressive to say the least. It was great to see Chris S back on the pitch after his long lasting injury. We were definitely not goal-less we won 7-0 and even the President himself netted a goal (penalty) !

[ SPL ] Century Park FC 0-3 Shanghai Lions (27 Jan 2013)

On Sunday it was a serious game versus Shanghai 2000. We knew we had to play better than last week in order to stay in the title race. However Simon together with co-coach Gwen tried to sabotage the team by not announcing the line-up on the website. God bless everybody was motivated including Jeff’s beautiful twin girls as they were dancing around on the field during the warm up.

We started very well and played good football. The reward came within 5 minutes by a good header from Adam, soon after Joel found the net and after that Terao-san blasted home the third !

Second half Amine was very unlucky to dislocate his shoulder but his shoulder is back in place after a visit to the hospital. We should have scored at least four more goals but failed to hit on target so we won 3-0 instead of 7-0.

Something for the next training to work on is to finish in front of an open goal ! One more high-light was Michael’s performance as at the half time break he looked pale as a ghost blaming it on his food in take the day before but our suspicion was that it was an dangerous alcohol mix combined with potato chips. Ten minutes before the end of the game our man form Kansas went down screaming with pain as he got cramp in both legs ! It was also good to see Matze back with his Starbucks in his hand this time as supporter!

 

Both days I was very pleased with the team spirit of the Lions. It’s a real joy to work with all of you and I hope this spirit will lead us to many trophies !

We have a good week ahead of us this Thursday the Sports Awards at the Camel Bar. We expect all the Lions to come for a beer and support the Shanghai Sports Community! Saturday we will play the Beavers and hope that DIB will slip up a second time versus Re-United and on Sunday we will play the French ERS and we don’t need motivation for this game as everybody like to kill the French Fries!

 

Enjoy Life Enjoy being a Lion!

 

Cheers

Team selection for “Les Bleus” vs. Scottish Football Team

Hi guys,

I’m writing this email in English as we’ll have a German guest tomorrow. Somehow, it’s normal as in the situation they didn’t screw it up, we’d all be German now… We’ll also have an American guest.  In the situation they didn’t screw it up as well… we all understand, right?
Following my first communication, I thought it will be easier to get this team in place… Finally, I have sent over 70 emails and I have to admit that you’re the real ones. Thank you!!!
It seems we, French people, always have good excuses and it probably also means that once we stop with regular senior Football, it’s forever…
Please let me know if any problem to attend. It’s important!!!

Information

  • Meeting directly at WGQ at 12.15
  • Game start at 13.00
  • Scots will play in light blue and as our other Lions teams are playing as well this weekend, we’re short of Jerseys. It means you have to bring your own national equipment and we’ll probably look like a patchwork. More seriously, I’ll bring Red bibs but bring your own shirt, short, socks, etc…
  • Also, pitch is not free (sorry la). Keep in mind I will ask you RMB 100 as participation fee to pay the pitch (or less hopefully)

Confirmed

  1. Pierre J (GK)
  2. FL
  3. David H
  4. Matze
  5. Jeff Tharsen
  6. Nicolas Mongrelet
  7. Jeff L’Her
  8. Mus
  9. Fred Fuseau
  10. Frederic Guilloux
  11. Damien Calves
  12. Thierry Leder (GK)
  13. Philippe Gathion
  14. Jonathan Beurel
  15. Eric Albrand
  16. Gilles Albin
I’ll bring some Pastis to be shared with our Scottish friends after the game. If some of you guys want to bring some pate, baguette or any french liquors, feel free to do so. Mus is gonna take care of the cockerel and let’s have fun tomorrow.
Any question, please let me know and/or feel free to share with everyone.
Note: It would have been fun to look like our glorious ancestors… Guess it’s too late to grow the “Moustache” and tailor old fashioned equipment.
Beware Scottish are ready, noisy with their crazy pipes and would probably win the “3eme mi-temps / 3rd half”.
Cheers
Francois

Brazil hammer China 8-0

Opposed to China in a friendly on Monday in Recife, Brazil atomized Chinese selection 8-0 with 6 goals in 2nd half. The striker Neymar has been the architect of this win, signing a hat-trick. Ramires, Lucas, Hulk, Liu Jianye (og) and Oscar are the other scorers.

It seems to be China biggest defeat in their football modern history.

China starting XI v Brazil:

Zeng Cheng, Zhao Peng, Liu Jianye, Yu Yang, Lu Peng, Zhao Xuri, Tang Miao, Zhu Ting, Hao Junmin, Gao Lin, Liu Jian

Party afterwards

  • Pitch and facilities are nice and perfect for a family afternoon. It means you can bring on wifes, kids and dogs.
  • To compete with their Scottish pipe, we’ll have no choice but to bring on our old french “variete” tubes such as Claude Francois and Plastic Bertrand…
  • I don’t worry too much for the drinks with the Scots…
  • In term of entertainment beside the music, we’ll be able to watch the Lions playing again the Krauts from 3pm for the 1st game of SIFL season 2012/2013. They would need support and I’m sure people will be amazed by the overall team progress since few years ago.
  • Scottish said they will bring a sheep while I asked Mus to take care of the cockerel!
Football - Shanghai - Veteran French Lions vs. Scotland

Opponent: Shanghai Scottish Football

Team is mostly a veterans team (over 35s). They have played the Shanghai English and the Shanghai Irish and will shortly play the Shanghai Dutch. If truth be told they prefer whisky to red wine and deep fried Mars bars to the fine cooking but they do have a great love of traditional Celtic music. In short, they would really like to take on Les Blues because they believe “Scotland are the ORIGINAL Blues”.
