Happy 4th Anniversary....
Happy 4th birthday to Skopet FC......that's right.....4th...."empet".....that's how we got the name.....n we never get to celebrate this momentous and significant 4th anniversary like our 1st 2 years cause nobody seems to bother....but i, on the other hand would like to wish this team a great 4th year....though we face adversities and yet still trying to find ourselves back in our feet...hope we will still be playing football till the day we get bloated tummies, sitting on our bare asses, laying flat on the couch wishing we could lose a few pounds......for some of us.....you're already there....
anyway....enjoy the World Cup 2010....

the wait is over - match updates
The skopet blogging team is back. Sorry folks for the long hiatus. It all started with Prem who promised to write a match report but as usual went back on his word. !@##$
To keep u readers up-to-date, after the last emotionally charged match report by Zai, Skopet succumbed to league leaders Kawakaze 4-1 the following week at Pasir Ris. We were certainly outplayed in the first half. But the manner of the 3 goals conceeded was horrifying. 3-0 at halftime.
Secondhalf was better as we desperately searched for a way back into the game. Jiaming pulled one back from a corner and things looked promising as we initiated waves of attack. However it was not to be as their 4th goal settled the match. That loss was to be our first ever consecutive defeat since the team's formation.
Hence we had to win the next game at all cost. After three weeks of Rain-offs and match cancellations, we finally played our fifth league game at Tanglin yesterday against Eagle Boyz.
Zai opened the scoring with a tap in from Mar's pinpoint cross. Joel scored a wonderful chipped goal early in the secondhalf. The opponents pulled one back before Fad sealed the game with a tap in courtesy of Saliman's tangle with the tumbling leftback. The ref frustated us with numerous dubious calls on offside whereas Xy missed 2 sitters when he was actually onside. Nonetheless it was a good win. The team looked solid even with the long lay-off. Makeshift defence did well especially Hatta standing in at right back. As for the strikers, we have to make the chances count in the next games. Even though we have a new 100% accurate striker, Zaibacol, we need to be more ruthless in front of goal. I will try harder guys, just give me the balls.
Skopets, as suggested by retired player Syaf, we are going for this run in May 2010. Theres about 5 mornths to train. It costs $60 for individual half marathon whereas its $50 for teams of pet. (4)
So far Fad/Rizman/Salman/Rudy/Herman/Syahir/Syaf have confirmed. Waiting for more to register.Pls sms Syaf if you're interested. www.sundownmarathon.com
Saliman is also taking charge of sending teams for an upcoming Fico tournament in Jan. Sms him if you're keen for that one.

we lose as a team and you'll never walk alone!...
yes...when we lose, win or draw....we go thru it as a team..its part of football...
nobody likes to lose...everybody wants to win..
but we can't win everything....it was just skopet's off day..but let's not take anything from our young opponents, no matter how much we hate to admit it.....respect is part of football..
there's always room for improvement and we'll learn from our mistakes....
we have our fair share of chances(i'm guilty as charge) and shortcomings(still guilty)...
but in the end, the team that took their chances and took advantage of an opportunity, in each half, wins.
From a positive note, even though we're 2-0 down, we still have the drive and desire to get back in the game. Thanks to Malik who scored a sweet volley out of a corner which evades everyone except him. I'll take a lost with try and effort rather than just "effortlessy-giving up hope" attempt. Although we could have played better, we didn't actually play badly at all.
Really hope u guys share this view.
its not about playing the best football, being the deserving winners, superiorities, having referees' decision going our way, having the best players, creating more chances and dominating games...blah blah blah...in football, you can have all that and yet lose a match....ask man utd, barcelona, arsenal,chelsea etc.
all the best teams in the world tasted defeats....who hasn't??...
the difference btween us and them is that they got pay for it...we pay to play(and that includes losing)
so let's all reflect...and improve our next game...learn from mistakes...put this disappointment aside...and let's move on and look forward to the next game...
look at liverpool..4 lose in a row, in a bad run of form + no gerrard + torres(80%) + carragher(under scrutiny from a poor form) + leiva (underachiever n not the best central mid in the team)...and yet...scored a brilliant victory against the defending EPL champions(who gracefully accept defeat like a man...kudos to that)
too bad i'm using this as an example...
see you in the next match(although friendly) and put our game face on..
