High scores and high drama

Thursday, 19 February 2009

A disappointing game last night for a variety of reasons. I thought the teams were balanced but Gordo and Foxy both said before the game that they thought ours looked stronger which seemed to be true. However, it does help when the opposition give you the ball directly from their goal quite a lot. I don't know, maybe it was just one of those nights. Anyway, I think it's better we all just move on from last night's game as quickly as possible.

Andy asked if he could pick the teams (jokingly) but I think it's worth giving it a go. We've tried it in the past to let everyone have a shot or to have two people act as captains and pick the teams but it never seemed to work out. But what have we got to lose from giving it a go again?

If we go in alphabetical order, give everyone one week and see how it goes once everyone has done it once. I warn you know, it's not easy. You want to make them fair so no one accuses you of trying to fix it but at the same time, you don't want to handicap yourself too much either. The other aspect of picking teams is I try to give everyone a shot of playing together and also stop the same people being in the same team week after week. It's not as easy as I make it seem (ahem).

So next week, Alan will be picking the teams (which has never gone well!), then Andy, and so on.
