GAME COMMENTS BY TEAM MANAGER:  
It was great, it was sensational….aehmm….of course unfortunately not the final result, I was talking more about the way we played our first game, but ended up unluckily with the result. As also I experienced it, most of us were happy to appear back to the pitch, after such long time and it was the first ever game for Shanghai Kickers FC in the Shanghai International Football League (SIFL), after nearly 20 years in the Shanghai Premier League (SPL), which paid its tributes to the damn Corona Virus.

According to the statistics, as usual managed and prepared by “Dictator Bilgin” average weight of the team has increased by 5kg per player during the holidays and Corona time, which was quite disastrous in terms of surviving the second half. It seems some rules have to be implemented in order to be back to track for the next game against for Reunited, Yoga is on the menu!

Our first game was planned to be the direction for the entire season: Win and eliminate the opponent and accompany the good mood to our next game! But as it is usual in footbal, plan and strategy are always on the paper, the reality is rather different (it sucks sometimes). Wealso know in football here are always some excuses, if things do not work out: YES, we had new players, who did never play together; YES the pitch was new; YES Dictator was out of shape; YES we still had alcohol in the blood from Friday, etc., countless reasons, but honestly all just wrong for the game against Shanghai Vikings: We just were unlucky, we played great football!.

It was only a matter of time that we would strike in the game. In the 2nd min we scored via Othmane, after a great pass by Roy. During that time Huseyin was going to bring some water and I asked him to go and do the same again, so we might score during his abscene again. But suddenly the picture changed: After the first 5 minutes we lost control till 30th minute, whereby in minute 10th Vikings made the equalizer. The next 20 minutes, we were pressured heavily (2 times post hits by Vikings and one crazy save by our goalkeeper), nevertheless the last 15 minutes of the first half belonged fully to us, whereby Kickers scored in the 34th and 36th minute via Max and Cesar (Assists Ryan & Houssam)

The picture looked different in the second half, after a free kick from 25m in the 53 minute the ball went kind of crazily to the goal suprising defense and our goalkeeper, like the world was sleeping. Vikings smelled it quickly that something  would be possible here and continued to pressure. In the 56th minute the game was equalized to 3-3 followed by the 4-3 in the 68th minute and 5-3 in the 80th minute, kind of 15 bad minutes for Kickers creating a nightmare for Dictator for the next weeks ahead.

Then it was resting time for Vikings and Kickers wake up too late and scored the 5-4 in the 90th minute via Cesar. We could say the game was kind of quite balanced and a 4-4 would been quite fair, but Kickers were not well coordinated from corners and free kicks, whereby 3 goals been scored after corners. It was a great game for SIFL and it can be said that Shanghai Kickers FC will be a great gain for the league and will be able to put quite heavy pressure on some established teams. The main derby preparation is ahead against Shanghai Krauts FC, but most important game as usual for Shanghai Kickers: Win against Marlins, even a loss of all games through season would be balanced out, if we win against Marlins FC, a fierce battle over years.

In a urgent after game meeting Dictator decided to give a chance to one of his secret strategies his new system imported from “Angola”, before catapulting Kickers to higher grounds, he meanwhile implemented the secret “Nicaragua Stratey” not know to the Shanghai Football Community. In his urgent press conferences Dictator clearly communicated, that anything except a win on on October 17th might cost him his head and that he will be transferred back to manage the U8 team.

Therefore: We really need to win against ReUnited, doesn’t matter how! I am expecting from each of you [different rules for Dictator of course] to go to bed at decent hours the next weeks, only drink 5 liters instead of the usual 9 liters beer and improve blood circulation, in order to be ready for the new battle. Via a tel conference the Management have also informed that our new acquisitions will be announced soon!

With Regards
Mogul & Dictator Shanghai Kickers FC (from the outskirts of Shanghai)
