Amigo’s and Amiga’s,
Last weekend some teams took part in the Shanghai Masters. A great veteran tournament organized by Super 48 ! It was won by Emerald FC who beat Japan 1-0 in the final and the Lions Legends ended third after they lost the semi’s against Japan on penalty. For this reason we had only one game on Sunday !
Century Park FC 1–0 ERS
It was a great setting on a great pitch with the two teams in form battling it out. ERS started better and got opportunities esp Ondrej came close as well ERS felt they deserved a penalty when he was tackled from behind. After a while Century Park came over their nerves and took more possession and control of the game. They tried to score by counters but Shingi and Max rushed too much and missed the targets. In the second half Century Park started better fully focused and it lead to the opening goal great run and pass fm Daniel Kim to Fafa who scored the 1-0. Now ERS had to come and they tried it with long balls and on the other side Century Park tried to break on counters and came close a few times ! It stayed 1-0 and Sam of ERS said after the game “ It was a great game of football but in this game both sides didn’t deserve to lose” !
This weekend we will have three games in the SPL!
- 1230 -1430 Krauts vs MMFC @ Jinqiao
- 1430-1630 Lions – ERS @ Jinqiao
- 1400-1600 Century Park FC – Marlins
Temperatures are hitting winter levels so let the games be excellent warming up games for the upcoming Santa Cup hopefully played in the snow !

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,
Last Sunday October 16th, 2016 we had good playing condition unfortunately only two games as Galacticos had two team events on the day and couldn’t field enough players.
Marlins 6–1 Krauts
No Bilgin and No Manu but plenty of players for the Krauts ! Statistics of the Krauts winning games while king Bilgin is not there are not looking good as it would be a single digit figure. Marlins started strong and scored quick by James after a one two with Pete. Soon there was a second after a goal keeper error scored by Jamie Lally. The Krauts kept trying hard on fast counters and succeeded by a fast break on the wing and good finish by Gonzalo. Pete of the Marlins made it 3-1 with a fine header after a good cross. With half an hour gone there was a bust up between two players of each team and kevin gave them the marching orders. Bad luck stroke again for the Marlins as Ash Reid was unlucky to rupture and Achilles tendon and will be out for several months (We wish him a speedy recovery !). James scored his second for the Marlins just before half time. In the second half it was more of the same but when Banksy committed a professional foul it was his second yellow and Kevin ordered him to shower early ! Marlins left with 9 players only still managed to score two goals by Jamie G and James for his hat trick !
Century Park FC 3–0 Japan
Usually its Japan who are the best prepared for the start of the game but this time Century Park scored after 4 minutes by Fafa and soon scored their second by Shingi who scored two minutes later. Japan had to run behind the facts for the rest of the game and to finish of their solid performance they scored their third goal with 5 minutes to go by Shingi again.
This weekend we will have three games all at Waigaoqiao and the outlook is for rain but we should be good to play !
- 1300-1500 Krauts – Galacticos @ Waigaoqiao
- 1300 – 1500 ERS – Japan @ Waigaoqiao
- 1500-1700 Lions – Super 48 @ Waigaoqiao
Enjoy the games !
Cheers Freek / Yamada-san
