Zut Alors - Quelle Surprise

So, the first game of the new season and we were up against a side that had been relegated at the end of the previous season. An international scouting operation meant that I was unable to watch the game, so I'm relying on my third party reports for this blog entry.

We had a squad of 8, so started the match with Goose in nets, Paul and Jake at the back, Matt, Sean and Gary in midfield and Andy up front. Second half saw Paul leave the pitch and Mark take his place, here's what unfolded.

We went 1-0 up in the first half thanks to a goal from Andy. Then in the second half Andy and an Expected Tolouse player get into a bit of a melee and both are sent off for a 5 minute cool down. Expected Tolouse grab an equaliser, despite a pretty clear foul on Mark in the lead up to the goal, but the ref isn't interested. Both players return to the pitch, but it's Expected Tolouse who go on to score the crucial winning goal. All in all, quite an eventful match.
