Choule Auderghem 1
Opening day of the season, a great opportunity to see what Alvaro and his men have been working on. Sean’s summer mix 21 had the boys so riled up they decided to skip the warm up as it was deemed unnecessary.
Straight from the kick off we looked dangerous, solid and terribly unfit. Choule crumbled early on and brought down Mo in the box after his blistering speed was too much for them to handle. Naturally only one man could step up for this occasion, Bonaldinho. If you need a replay of the goal, Bonaldi has already uploaded it onto his Instagram page for the ladies to see. Choule quickly equalised from the spot after an unfair decision went against Billy but the boys were quick to respond. A desperate long ball from Boanldi luckily landed on the club Legend Sigve. Quick thinking from the Norwegian as he volleyed the ball first time over the keeper for a beautiful lob. 2-1 at Half Time.
Early in the second half, Sigve was very unfortunate not to double his tally. A beautiful chip from the right side landed on the back post. The keeper was left helpless and did not move. The last 10 minutes of the game were stressful to watch. Choule had the upper hand and looked likely the equalise. They had many dangerous free kicks and corners but they were unable to breakthrough our new keeper Max. Excellent performance from the new joiner, he made many vital saves to help the team secure their first three points.
Naturally, we must discuss the man of the match. A well deserved reward for our center back Bonaldi. He had one goal and one assist but he won all his challenges and made us feel safe at the back. Hopefully this does not inflate his head any bigger as his arrogance and narcissism is bad enough as it is. Personally, I think the whole backline deserved to be man of the match as they were superb this weekend.
First game of the season and first win for the team. What more could you ask for? Many positives to take from this performance but unfortunately for Alvaro some things will never change. Our tiki taka football does not look Spanish, Bonaldi still can’t tell the time and Paul still enjoys his hissy fits on the sideline. We look forward to this new season.
