    Next Tuesday for me, please. I have also been given permission (by the wife) to indulge in a second session, so a scenario of Mondays @ BTC and Thursdays @ The Pitch would be fantastic.

  2. rajiv said

    Well Tom, if there are sufficient numbers for a second session in the Bukit Timah area, it’s just a matter of booking (if available) and putting it out on that week’s schedule. Until then, you can always play at The Cage on Wednesday.

  27. Ian said

    Count me in for Wednesday. Pity I can’t make the other sessions this coming week.

  28. Llion said

    Apologies, going to pullout tonight, had an accident mountain biking over
    weekend thus dont think I can move much for a few days.

  29. rajiv said

    Ok Sushil. I will include him in the regular e-mail updates as a newcomer once I get his e-mail address.

    Confirmations and revised line-ups for this week:

    Today, 9 to 10 pm, The Cage (Kallang), Pitch 3
    Confirmed: Bret, Shankar, Sushil, Andy C, Benjamin, Murray, Yuchi, Simon, Sze Kuan, Tim C, Darius, Joe (12). Tonight is full now, so any further confirmations can only be on reserve.

    Confirmed so far: Boon Yick, me (2). Minimum 8 more. If we don’t have enough confirmations by Wednesday, this session will be cancelled.

    I forgot to do the “captain” thing last week, and in truth, the captain doesn’t have to do much, but one more thing the captains can do is agree to swap players if they feel that the sides are too uneven.

  30. Yu Teik said

    Hi Rajiv,

    Apologies, I cannot make soccer on Tuesday as I have a last minute late meeting scheduled from 7 to 9pm. Will join you again next Monday!

  31. George said

    Hi Rajiv,

    I will be there tmr night.

    George

  32. Philipp said

    Sorry,I have to cancel the Tuesday again. Still not fully recovered.
    Will be away for the whole August, so see you again in September.
    Have fun!

  33. rajiv said

    With Yu Teik and Philipp out but George in, those confirmed for tomorrow night are now as follows – Tom, Mark C, Raj, Sushil, Kin, Edardy, Darius, Joe, George, me (10).

    Revised line ups for Tuesday as follows:

    • Dark tops: Tom, Raj (captain), Kin, Darius, George
    • Red tops: Mark C, Sushil (captain), Edardy, Joe, me

    I hope Joe is good, otherwise, it might be very unbalanced in favour of Darks!

  34. rajiv said

    Unless someone drops out, like last Thursday, I won’t be there tonight.

    The futsal ball is still with Bret from last Thursday. Again, I’ve already paid for the pitch as part of the block booking at The Cage, so the same as last Thursday. Bret, I’ll see you at the Wednesday session.

    Again, I’ll include all your contact numbers in the confirmatory e-mail I will be sending to you shortly.

    Again, be there by 8.50 pm and use any waiting time to warm up.

    Bret, have you opened a WordPress account so that you can post your match report directly onto the blog?

    Again, have fun.

  35. redseason said

    @George: Are you serious, or just teasing?

    @Sushil: This “3 times a week” schedule that you’re subjecting yourself to is really not “on”.

    @Rajiv: Is Mark C the same as Marc from The Pitch last week? If so, then Joe can be crap and it will still be a tight game.

    @Joe: Don’t kick me for suggesting that you can be crap. Bring your football CV and $300 FIOFAFI entry fee.

  36. rajiv said

    Tom, Mark C is another Mark, who used to play regularly on Sunday mornings. He played the last time you played at Bukit Timah campus – the session you wrote “Twelve Eager Men” for. The words “memory” and “sieve” come to mind again.

    Joe, don’t take anything Tom says too seriously, he’s not as bad as his brother, Raj. Actually, sometimes, I don’t know who is worse.

  37. redseason said

    @Jiv: OH! That Mark; hmmm, we will have a problem with this fella.

  38. Ladi said

    Hi Rajiv,

    This is Ladi (Murray’s friend), I am looking to join you for football from time to time and wanted you to have my contact details.

    Email: [suppressed]
    Facebook: Ladi Sanusi
    Mobile: [suppressed]

  39. rajiv said

    Welcome on board Ladi.

    Next week’s schedule will be out tomorrow morning, so feel free to confirm for whichever sessions you wish to play next week. How the system works is set out under “Weekly Sessions”.

    Let me have your age as well, for the Contact List. You can e-mail it to me at fiofafi@totalworlds.com.

    And as you’re on Facebook, feel free to join Yu Teik’s FAFI Group on Facebook.

    Hope to see you soon!

  40. rajiv said

    It was 5 v 5 last night as Shankar was unwell and had a fever, while Sze Kuan was held up at work.

    Bret is doing the match report for last night.

    Bret, before your match report comes out later, feel free to express a view on whether Joe was any good.

  41. Sushil said

    Not to confuse things more than it may already be, Joe did not play yesterday. He had something come up, but sent his brother in law Bobby who is also keen to start playing with us.

    Joe will come today and provide both his and his bro-in-law email addresses.

  42. Mark C said

    Look forward to tonight’s game. And don’t worry Tom, I’m less effective on grass than on hard court 🙂

  43. Look Liew said

    let me know if any dropouts tonight TX.

  44. rajiv said

    Thinking Look Liew wanted to play, I SMSed a few who prefer playing in the Bukit Timah area to see if we could get one more player. We got two instead – Sze Kuan and Swee Hoe. I spoke to Look Liew and he is happy to remain in reserve, so the final line ups for tonight at the Premier Pitch are as follows:

    • Dark tops: Tom, Raj (captain), Kin, Darius, George, Sze Kuan
    • Red tops: Mark C, Sushil (captain), Edardy, Joe, Swee Hoe, me

    For those who have not been there before, there is a location map on the links in the right column.

    Again, be there by 8.50 pm and use any waiting time to warm up.

    To give Tom and me a break, would anyone else like to do a match report after tonight’s game? First one to volunteer has the pleasure/honour of getting to do it!

  45. redseason said

    @Mark C: No, lah it’s not real grass. (bites nails)

    @Sushil: Re. this Joe fella with the “on demand” brother-in-law. I think the crux of the matter can be stated as follows: Is Joe any good? In order not to offend anybody here, we can re-phrase the question as follows:

    How does Joe relate to you (purely in a footballing capacity) in terms of

    (a) fitness
    (b) ball control
    (c) shooting
    (d) vision
    (e) team-work
    (f) work ethic
    (g) dibbling

    Answer 1-5, with 1 meaning “so bad, he makes me look good”, with 2 meaning “a little worse than me”, 3 meaning “as good (or bad) as I am”, 4 meaning “I’d prefer to be on his side” and 5 meaning “I am proud to call him my friend”. We look forward to your scouting report. Do it now or we’ll all do it after the game! : )

  46. Raj said

    Looks like after last nights performance we would also need to add (h) match commentating

  47. rajiv said

    No change to tonight’s line ups. We’re full for tonight, so anyone else confirming can only be on reserve.

    Only Boon Yick and I are confirmed for tomorrow (9 to 10 pm at Sports Planet @ East Coast). I would ordinarily have cancelled, but Look Liew has informed me that his group is playing there from 8 to 9 pm and on the waiting list for a 9 to 10 pm slot, so I’ll give him our slot, and up to 3 or 4 of us can join them from 8 to 10 pm.

    So anyone else who wants to play tomorrow night from 8 to 10 pm at Sports Planet @ East Coast, please confirm below as usual.

  48. rajiv said

    Look Liew only has 7 tomorrow night, plus Sze Kuan, Boon Yick and me to make 10, so we’ll only play from 8 to 9 pm (9 to 10 pm is cancelled).

    Look Liew may be able to get one more, so we only have place for 1 more.

    If anyone is interest, as usual, confirm below.
