Vets1 played high up the table Tourinnois, we had 3 great chances in the first 20 mins, then the opposition who were cunning and technically good started to dominate and got 2 quick goals to lead 0-2 HT, we were more solid 2nd half almost breaking down their solid defence while Francois kept the scoreline 0-2 FT, no injuries as we head to a series of matches where ee should pick up points

Motm: François

Fantastic weather for football today, wind, rain and a amazing squad for vets 1… The winter mercato was not bad for vets 1 with Alvaro, Rodrigo, Pierre Antoine and a young Stepan… We started very well with a lot of nice moves but they scored on nice head in cross… We continue our pressure but we can’t score the first goal… The second half was against the wind so very difficult to control the ball, and Fernando took a red card on a fast move… With 10 men’s on the pitch we conceded a second goal just after.. But nobody want stop there and after several opportunities we scored a nice goal with assist of Rafa C and a nice goal of Alvaro… We couldn’t scored the second but the match was a great achievement

MotM: Alvaro

Vets 1 played Gast today…. During the week, the squad was full but finally 11 players arrived on stadium versus a top team… They scored early but Pierre Antoine equalized after a rush of Armands… But opposition was too strong, 3-1 HT… Second part was very difficult with their offensives and our tiredness… 8-1 final score

Vets1 were playing against the team just above in the table J. St-Gilloise R today. After 2 draws in a row, Vets1 were determined to make it a win this time.  We started well organised and structured. Soon that paid off when in a first corner a second ball on front of the area saw  Rafa Cremades take a powerful shot in to the nets. 1-0. We gave no chance to the opposition and took the advantage again 5 minutes later. Pierre-Antoine entered the area on the right and tried a shot that was countered, the ball remained in the air and there was Rodrigo to knock it in the goal with a strong header. 0-2 for us at HT. In the second half we kept on with a good organisation defensively and added two more goals and missed a few opportunities to make the difference bigger. Armands scored the 3rd with a good shot from the side outside the area that was deviated by the defender. Keeper couldn’t do anything. The 4th goal came after Pierre Antoine stole the ball to one of their defenders in the 3/4 of the pitch and went one v one with the keeper but his attempt was blocked. Adrian came from behind ready and slotted in with a lovely lob in a Georghe Hagi fashion. Game closed 0-4 FT. Coach David was pleased with the performance of everyone. Vets1 now sit  comfortably in 8th place with 11 points and three games undefeated.

MotM Ale the boss in defense following by Rodrigo who should be vet definitively

Vets1 played ITT Gecko, a team in a similar position to ours in the table, a team who beat us twice last season thanks to last minute goals. So there is some relief that we got the one point today despite leading twice. First goal on the counter, Sparks bringing the ball down the wing and fining Rafa C. Who slotted it very nicely into the bottom left corner of the goal. Our second goal was scored by Rafa M. with one of his expert free kicks. We suffered a bit towards the end but did not yield.

Vets 1 played Champions Forestois, a very strong and well organised side, we conceded a silly goal but held on for 0-1 HT, 2nd half was more open, we scored 2 (Matt and Rafa C) to their 4, final score 2-5, MotM Francois with some great saves

Vets1 lost 0-1 in a tight contest against third place team ambiance auderghem. Deserved victory for the opposition who had the upper hand most of the game, but had to wait until 10 minutes before the end to open the score from the penalty spot. We did test their goalkeeper on a few occasions, namely Gustavo with two very good long range efforts, but it was not to be today.

Vets 1 have liftoff, we bossed the midfield today, Clement opened the score with a mazy run, Rubio then lobbed the keeper, HT 2-0 up, they hit the bar, then Clement kept his cool to get his second, Armands curled a beautiful strike in the top corner, and finally Matt got his scrappy goal at the end, 5-0!!!! When we win it’s in style…

Vets 1 managed to stay in the match against a disciplined Tourinnois, twice coming from a goal down to be level at 2-2 on 55 minutes thanks to a couple of Rafa Rodri combinations, each getting one goal, but we then conceded 4 in the last 15 minutes, a bit of a strange  capitulation which didn’t do justice to the first 55 minutes of the match – so Vets 1 still with no points after 4 matches …

No Game. Mutuelle has forfeited for the season.

Vets 1 away to a technically good Jefke we took the lead through a nice goal by Rafa C and lost the lead through a retaken peno, HT 1-1, their better fitness told in the 2nd half even though we had some good chances to take the lead, final score 1-3 but could have been different, MOTM Francois with loads of great saves

Vets 1 had a tough afternoon against Gast, we managed a consolation goal but lost 1-5, difficult first vets 1 match for Villu and MoTM Armands

Brazil 5 – Irlande 4

1-0, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 2- 3, 3-3, 4-3, 4-4, 5-4 ….

Almost with the last blocked clearance of the game …

A shame to leave auderghem without a point at least

Very good first half with many new faces where it finished 1-1. Virgil with the goal.

They were much better in the second half.

Good test after all.
