Vets 1 played Forestois today for continue the strike… But against a very technical team and a referee who had problem to see more than 10 meters the match was difficult… First half was not open but forestois scored quietly after than the ref gave them a throw in unfair and than the Irish lads stop totally to play for let the striker shot.. HT… Forestois scored a second goal on corner in the beginning of second half… The Irish start their match with some nice move, on a free kick from Karim, Rodrigo put his head for reduce the score… Forestois start to play very hard and broken the Irish waves but the possible penalties become free kick for simulation and corner become throw in per magie .. Forestois had several opportunities for close the game but couldn’t do it with a strong defense… Weather was cold and referee decide to stop the game before the 70mn … Defeat 1-2, the strike is down but  the spirit was extra… Fcirlande plays on the same level as this top team and it was a big satisfaction… Motm Ale

Something happen with vets 1 this season … After the fantastic win versus the leader Gast last week ,Vets 1 made it 3 in a row against Jeunesse St Gilloise, we started strong, Sylvain pulling the strings in midfield, Karim crossed for Clement’s first, a nice team move then resulting in Matt assisting Clement for his second, but we couldn’t put the game out of reach before HT, we kept pressing to kill the game and ended up conceding a peno as our irate opponents kept making dirty fouls to stop our moves, but we kept putting pressure and rode out the strorm to prevail 2-1,

MoTM Clement and we hope Rafa’s ribs are ok in the morning…

Today vets 1 played Gast current leader of our group.

Conditions were good, a decent grass, a good weather and our team very focused on doing the right thing: playing when it was possible and keeping the necessary discipline against technical players. Our opponent had possession but they didn’t find the right combinations and spend most of the time trying to find their forwards through long balls which never surprised our defenders. When it did they did some smart fouls and so Francois our keeper didn’t have a lot of interventions to make. As we were mostly playing on counter attacks we saw quickly there were some possibilities on the wings. On one sequence Armand and John combined and allowed our Latvian marathon man to get in position but he was stopped irregularly on the edge of the box. On the free kick that followed, Goncalo tried his chance, the goal was deflected and John was there in the box to tap the ball in. 1-0 just the before end of first half, the perfect scenario!
On second half we kept our composure, Francois had a couple interventions to make  Gast got frustrated with the referee and completely lost it getting 7 yellows and 1 red. We kept our advantage til the end, inflicting the leader their first loss of the season.

We beat GAST  !!!!!

MOTM John.

Vets1 played Auderghem Ambiance and, with a little help from Sigve, everything clicked into place as we routed the opposition to win 9-0! Braces for Clement, Gonzalo, Sigve (joint MotMs), Matt and a final cracker from Musti, everyone played well and let’s see if we can reproduce this form next week against top of the table Gast

Vets 1 played a strong Jefke team, we competed well in the first half, equalizing through Matt (Clement assist) but  Jefke scored via each chance and went 3-1 HT, 2nd half we fought hard, conceded a soft retaken peno, and had a few chances but no luck on the day; MotM Pierre Antoine

Vet 1 had a hard match today versus the bresilian from auderghem, always a difficult moment with this technical team…. The match start with a big pressure of Irish lads, all team were concerned and the opportunity arrived with a nice goal from Yacine… The first half was controlled and finished with tjis score…

The second half start with advises from coach David : we have the wind so shoot!!… Maybe for one time Irish lads hear him and after 10 mn Musti lauch a scud for beat their keeper… 2-0… Auderghem put a big pressure and run in attack, and scored on penalty for continue to believe… Believe in what?? Adi launch the second scud for close the game 3-1…what a result versus a top team…

Motm Clément

First point of the season… dedicated to Francois and David! 😊 we had clearer chances than they had… both goals were in the second half… theirs from a corner kick and ours a build up from the left side… Yacine assisted Matt for a banger (lovely powerful shot to the right down corner)!

Vets 1 played Metrasport in what is usually a high-scoring fixture, 8 goals this time… we started well, Fernando poking in after a corner, Metrasport equalised with their first chance, we re-took to lead for 2-1 (a nice lay back by Stepan coolly slotted in by Gonçalo) and should have gotten more but for some finishing issues (Matt still a bit rusty) – still we kept the lead into HT, then 2nd half Metrasport went up a gear and got a couple of fortunate goals to quickly go 2-5 up, Matt getting a consolation (assist Clément) finally as we finished strongly and could have gotten a 4th (Gonçalo hit the bar, 2 good saves to deny Sparks and Matt) despite sticking with the same outfield 10 that started (in rather hot temperatures) – on another day we’d have won this one but as it was we endured a painful 3-5 defeat. Fernando MoTM, Gonçalo close second, Brussels British next, time for points.
