MasterBlaster runs Bartertown!!!

Robin Hood FC Vs T8's
Vernon Park

Hi there sports fans, ahem.... Sorry! OK Its Sunday again baby which means its time for footy. Last week saw the Robin slip to another defeat, it was hard to take as they deserved at least a point from it. This week brings top of the table T8's to the home of Robin Hood FC, last time the two met the Robin were handed their arse on a plate and drubbed 8 - 2. So Sunday was time to prove a point and show that that scoreline was nothing more than a freak. So on with it I shall go the day was sunny and bright (at the beginning of it anyway) and the squad was slowly recovering from injuries and getting back to decent levels also helped with new additions.

peep, Peep, PEEP, Lets get that booty shaking its time to play, erm, Anyway the ref gets the game underway. A slight wince from the PT Sports crew (The returning Tony included) as they were expecting a deluge of shots to rain down upon the Robin's goal, but it did not come. T8's physically were the stronger taller side but the Robin on their day is full of battlers. The game is in no way tentative and the Robin are looking nothing like the team that rolled over and presented themselves a few weeks back in Hucknall. They are competing with T8's and although they made not be out jumping them they are working to keep them from getting a strangle hold on the game. Roughly twenty minutes in and T8's get a throw in on the Pond Side within Delapping distance of the Robins box. To no ones surprise the ball is launched into the Robins area straight on to the head of one of T8's six foot plus monsters (little harsh) who guides it into the opposite corner, GOAL!!! Robin 0 - 1 T8's. T8's start to excerpt a little domination exploiting the right hand side they had so much joy with in the first game. Some fine defending, including three consecutive blocks from Tea Pot which deny T8's from capitalising on there pressure. Robin continue to attack when they have to chance, and one attack leads to a free kick being award a few yards from T8's area, Magic Pants strikes the ball as the T8's wall rises, hitting the wall and bouncing out toward the centre circle where Welshy pops up and puts his foot through it, cleanly striking it, its dipping all the way, "Its going in!!" "Its going in!" "OOOOH" the ball hits the cross bar and goes over for a goal kick. What an effort, we won't hear the end of that, Welshy will be talking about it for the next ten years!! Shame it did not go in though. More solid defending and goal keeping has the Robin see out the half without conceding again. A good half for the Robin.

Robin 0 - 1 T8's

The second half starts again with T8's controlling the possession, leaving the only option for the Robin to counter attack. A couple of efforts For T8's flash wide, and when a free kick is floated dangerously into the Robin's area the connecting header goes agonisingly (for T8's that is) over. A counter from the Robin sees a a good long range effort from Gaz force a equally good save out of the T8's keeper, diving full stretch to his right hand side. Some intricate passing work from the Robin is untimely broke down by a T8's defender, time to start over. By now the rain had started to persist it down making conditions difficult for players and spectators alike. GOAL!!! T8's strike again to double their lead after a superb break from a initial Robin corner. Robin 0 - 2 T8's. T8's are starting to make their superiority count now as a long ball is latched onto by their striker who duly out paces the Robin defence and dispatch the ball into the back of the net, GOAL!!! Robin 0 - 3 T8's. Minutes later and Cain collects a T8's knock away and unleashes a powerful and accurate drive, oooh, its strikes the woodwork (just where the cross bar meets the upright) and bounces back into T8's box, Gaz is quickly upon it but a blatant push in his back from a T8's defender sends Gaz tumbling, penalty surely, no! NO! the most clear cut decision the Ref could have made all game and he gets it wrong. After that the half drops into a lull as both teams play it out to the end. The full time whistle goes.
Robin Hood FC 0 - 3 T8's

Another defeat for the Robin, but the manner of the defeat is what's important. The Robin had a good spirit today and battled for it in adverse weather conditions against (in my opinion) the team who are going to be champions of the league this season. The game saw another debut as Moonie made his first appearance for the club and almost set up and equaliser, nice to have you on board. Next week is Hucknall Empire @ Vernon, they are second in the league so another toughie, be there or be a shape of four equal parallel sides.
