Oof. That’s really all I can say after last week’s match. Oof. I don’t even feel like it’s worthwhile to talk about tactics or preparation or any of that because it ended up not mattering at all. Let me set the scene.
Hello and welcome to Episode 2 of Bad Lads FC. Last weekend, we played Cancho FC in our second match of the Spring Season. [If you don’t know what any of those words mean, you’ll probably want to go back and read my previous post in which I explain the league, and what this post… Continue reading Bad Lads FC: Attack of the Clones
I’ve been neglecting this blog since last September. It’s fitting, in a way, that while I am no longer in last September, my site is. You’ll get that reference once Mike and I finally get around to releasing our EP. Or maybe you won’t, who knows? One of the #ThingsIDo is manage and play on… Continue reading Bad Lads FC: A New Hope
