Great day all round, 5 wins and a draw from 7 matches (Away games 23/11/13) Sticky


Overall a great day for the club with 5 of our 7 teams winning, including a great win by the Firsts against the reigning champions and a great start to the Ladies’ cup campaign with a 1-3 away win against great rivals British United.

Firsts got a great win away to reigning champions Brussels LTC, 1-2, with Cillian scoring the winner 2 minutes from time. What we wouldn’t have given for a similar result in last year’s title decider when it was LTC who got a late winner which decided the championship. Darragh in goal was MOTM which goes to show that it wasn’t an easy win, but it was just a great all-round team performance. The win leaves us just a point behind LTC and frankly well in the hunt for second place. If Brussels British keep winning – they won again today – then nobody will catch them at this stage, but let’s get into the top three and then worry about catching them!

Seconds drew 0-0. No details of the match are available, quite possibly there were no details. It seems fair to assume that Nick kept a clean sheet and that George yet again failed to score.

Turds, one of the season’s success stories after flirting with relegation last season, got a great 3-5 win at New Team thanks to a hattrick from MOTM Stefaan. His three and a goal from Emil put us 1-4 up in the second half, but to keep the game interesting for the home fans we gave away a couple of soft goals to make it 3-4 with 15 minutes to go. For 15 minutes we defended valiantly before Joaquin finally got our fifth goal to make the game safe, in the last minute. Great win! We are now firmly in fourth place, and moving up!

Fourths lost 5-0 to mid-table Duden Sport, which moves us down to 4th in the title race. No further details were considered fit for publication, and the result is hopefully an aberration in this otherwise powerful season.

First Vets won 0-1 at Tourinnois. The game was not a great spectacle for the fans, but one goal by David was enough to give us the three points which move us up to 4th place in the table. 4th place seems to be a popular spot this weekend.

Second Vets won 1-4 away. A powerful squad was strengthened further by the initial absence of Damo, and we took a quick lead through (not a typo) debutante Chris Hutchins who hadn’t scored since about 2005. But we conceded a silly equaliser to go in 1-1 at the half. Damo arrived and went on, as did Pietro, and we took control of the game. Carlos scored a great go-ahead goal and then caused an own-goal to put us 1-3 up, while Laurent (MOTM I think, but who knows how Terry's mathematics works?) made at least 3 miraculous saves to keep us ahead. A surging run by Damo and a shot/cross that went in off the goalie set up the final 1-4 win, our third win in the last 4 games.

Ladies played a vital cup match away to old rivals British United and won 1-3. Details are not available at time of going to press. Last year we reached the cup semi-finals, this year we're hoping to do even better!

Ladies win 2-3 away to save the weekend. Sticky


Pauline scored 3 absolutely beautiful goals with assists from whole team. In second half we started ok, but own goal followed by goal from free kick turned game to the nervous kicking of the ball with each attack from their side being a danger. Great team performance. Well done everyone.

Home games 16/11/13 (one of those days ...) Sticky


Sometimes you have to forget about the results and just focus on the simple pleasures of being outside running around for two hours in shorts on a freezing cold day in a fog so thick that you couldn’t see one goalpost from the other, when you could have been at in IKEA or stuck in traffic on the Ring.

Today’s results were nothing to warm the hearts of the fans who braved the conditions: Four defeats and two 1-1 draws. So we’ll try to keep this short:

The firsts played perenniel rivals Portugal and lost 0-3. Two early goals, the second highly disputed due to a handball, and a third in the second half. Concensus was that Portugal fully deserved their win and that we didn't play very well.

This season is probably the real test of whether FC Irlande can become one of the top teams in abssa, year after year. The past few seasons we’ve had a phenomenal crop of players. This year we’re struggling to fill some of the positions that have been vacated by departure or injury. We may not win the league, but we need to keep fighting for top-3, even top-5, and then when injuries ease and some of the younger lads step up, we need to be competitive again next year. The commitment is there, the results will come.

The seconds let 1-0 through an excellent goal by Ollie from a great cross by George. (yes I know). But we couldn’t hold on and they got a second-half equaliser.

The turds were playing a team below them in the table, but never got their passing game going to enable them to get on top. After a scoreless first half, our defense then fell apart for reasons which are not clear .. we conceded 5 in the second half, with just one consolation reply from Mark.

The fourths played top of the league and were very unlucky to lose 1-2, with the winning goal coming from a ball that bounced off a post. After conceding 2 to a very strong team in the first half, our second half was much better, we got a goal back through Kieran but couldn't get the equaliser. Mark got a very interesting bruise on his forehead for his troubles. These lads will probably win the league, our real fight is for second place. For now we stay joint second.

The first vets created a great chance almost directly from the kick-off, and created about 20 more during the game, but they wouldn’t go in. But having conceded against the run of play in the first half, we actually had to wait until the middle of the second half to get a equaliser, Stevie heading in following a shot that hit the bar and bounced down just on the line (impossible to see in the fog who shot it, and indeed we’ve only got Stevie’s word that he scored it …

Second Vets played top of the league and saw their 2-game win-streak come to an end. Down 0-2 at the half, we were dangerous going forward looking for the goal that would make it interesting but it wouldn’t come, and then a deflected shot made it 0-3. We finally scored with about 5 minutes to go, but then conceded two late goals to leave the final score a flattering 1-5. Left-back Damo was MOTM for some sterling defending mixed with a few pitch-lenght runs (with the ball) ...

A special appreciation to the fans who came out to watch bad football in cold weather – Elena, Caoimhe and Damo’s daughter.

Ladies play tomorrow, our last hope of a win this weekend.
