Union JP 1
On a sunny/rain/hail Saturday the boys in Green were ready to celebrate Brioche’s Dad a.k.a Michel from Saint-Brieuc.
After 5 minutes and great passing games someone to Julian (Jules Kounde style) in between the 2 (stones) defenders to Lolo who killed the keeper. 1-0 up we are hot ladies and gentlemen.
But then with the weather changing our mood and fighting spirit declined. Benji and Alva trying to run track and field with 7 offsides in 20 minutes didn’t help that much.
Confusions occured but nothing bad happened in the end and we reached the half with 1 goal ahead.
Coach John made a great emotional speech saying basically that we were retarded and we needed to find the fingers stuffing our asses.
Second half was way more under control. Brioche gave brilliantly the ball to Lolo at the 30 meters, turn fast and hit the net like a proper Giroud.
Game done the special sub JPP missed a 1 on 1 last minute after making love to the keeper but.
Not the best performance/opponents (only 11 players) but the most important was done.
Michel was proud of his son and impressed by this bunch of nice guys.
We can all go to sleep reassured.
The story of our irish remontada is still ongoing ladies and gentlemen.
A great philosopher once said « you need to score more than you concede »…
On a cold but bright day in Anderlecht, the boys in green were playing against arch-enemy (Union JP)
The boys started very well, spirit high, concentrated and fighting in every ball with the grinta of Saudi Arabia (but while caring about human rights) the Lads were controlling the game but after a fault not whistled and a lack of clearance from our boys, Union managed to score a goal out of nowhere totally against the course of the game …the boys kept their heads up and kept fighting until the end of the first half …the second started as well, no drip in intensity …the opponents had no opportunities and then came the light : Gineste was pissed off to realize some had mistaken the « JP » of Union JP for Jean Pierre Papin and set on correcting that mistake: he score a nice goal in the left of the keeper proving he is the one and only JPP. The boys kept the intensity high and kept pressuring the opponent. They could not clear a ball from their box, and inadvertently put the ball in their own goal…2-1….you think the boys were finished …No, sir…that ain’t enough …we kept pushing and ultimately got a 3-1 from Gabi …who still was not finished and almost score the 4-1 in the end …
A beautiful team spirit and intensity with each an every player fighting on each and every ball…the win was totally deserved …
In the end, we scored (much!) more than we conceded :3-1 …then end (…for now…)
