SBC secretary Colin Ferris here pictured looking happy and holding the traditional club pineapple after escaping from the local hospital looks in great shape and reckons he will be back at Turney Rd Saturday week to sort everyone out.  If you get a chance please tell him to hold off at least 2 weeks to fully recover
Stuart Cronin sends his thanks from hospital to  the overwhelming number of well wishers he has had text or email him.  Stuart was the victim of a dangerous tackle during the 4th team match this weekend which left him with a fractured ankle, broken Tibia and dislocated fibia.

He has now been operated on and has been moved out of trauma into a normal ward.  The traditional SBC pineapple has been delivered.

The mighty pinks aka Southbank Invitationals (SIT) were in action last night vs EFFRA Academicals.  SIT went down 0-1 against the run of play in the middle of the first half to a worldy header from a corner to recover 3-1 thanks to goals from Sam Kelly (2) and Ben Kelly.  EFFRA reorganised and nullified the SIT attack in the second half although SIT controlled posession.  At the death Andy Judd playing for EFFRA having narrowly missed scoring in his own goal scored again for a header to leave SIT 3-2 to winners at the close.
Last night the SBC Invitationals Team (The mighty Pinks) were in action against a much strengthened EFFRA Academicals.  Despite early dominance SIT were unable to convert their chances whilst EFFRAs pacy attack got two before half time.  A more sturdy performance in the second half resulted in an eventual score line of 1-3

A number of people have asked which other great teams play or have played in pink.  The answer is surprisingly quite a few.  Real Madrid are the obvious ones, but a number of others spring to mind Barcelona 2009-2010, Palermo FC, FC Porto, Barcelona's current training kit, Lyon 2011-12, Bordeaux 2011, IFK Goteburg 2011, Everton 30th September2010, Burnley 1894, Everton again 1882-1884, Luton original plus 2010, Portsmouth 1898-1907, Juventus away kit 2011-12, Dulwich Hamlet and of course Southbank Invitationals Team
SBC Invitationals (SIT) came out 4-2 winners last night against EFFRA Academicals at the Crystal Palace Stadium.

The game started out well for "The Mighty Pinks" with Jim Wright poking one in in the first half and showing us his new celebration "That's two in two" was the general gist.  In the second half Phil Holton rose majestically above the assembled masses and bounced the ball off a defenders head into the roof of the net.  At 2-0 the pinks looked in control despite not rising to their best form.  Joe Southgate, Pasch and Paddy worked their butts off in the middle with Simon and Nathan providing the outlets on the flanks and Josh and Edward testing the refs knowledge of the offside rule up front.  Herr K (aka juddy senior), kiki, Phil, Jim, JP and John Henry looked solid at the back and played well to the Pinks philosophy of playing out from the back ala Arsenal.

It was looking comfortable until a 10 minute period of madness where Simon, now in goal made a great save from a long range shot to tip the ball onto the post only to be bundled ball and man into the goal on his third save.  This followed by a classic defensive error which allowed the oppositino to get 3 on one after one of our own corners.

The game went a bit limp as looked like we were drifting towards and inevitable 2-2 draw.  This changed after a couple of inspired substitutions by the manager lead to Chris getting a grip of the defense and ETW rediscovering his Fabreagas mojo.  In 2 minutes Pasch puts Josh through on the right side of his marker and he finishes, then Fabregas dinks Josh in again, a saved shot from the keeper another saved shot from Simon and a bundle in from Josh breaks EFFRA's hearts (literally it appeared in some cases) and its all done and dusted at 4-2 to the Mighty Pinks.

Well that's what I saw anyway

The traditional SBC Xmas 6 aside tournament has just been completed at the Crystal Palace Sports Centre Megabowl.  Great football and mince pies was had by all.  Much thanks go to John Henry for organising it all and to Colin and Aeon for refereeing.  Well done to all the players for some fine football which resulted in the same final as last year ie FC Red vs Bantanamo Bay Reserves.  Eventual winners were FC Red who retain the title.  

Full results are below.
Here is the running order for tomorrow's SBC Xmas 2014 6 aside tournament.  See you there, dress up warm.

The mighty Pinks came back from 1-3 down to finish the night at 4-4 against a much improved EFFRA team.  Great goals from Matt Steer (2), Ian Beason (The Beast is back, that's two in two games) and Eduardo (a screamer into the top left hand corner).  A shakey start but once we started playing our free flowing passing game we dominated the game and were unlucky not to score a hatful more.
The mighty Pinks (Southbank Invitational Team) were in action again last Thursday.  Some excellent football was played.  The less said about the result the better.  SIT will be in action on the Crystal Palace Stadium Pitch again this Thursday
The Southbank Invitational Team vs EFFRA Academicals game last Thursday, 3-1 to SIT.
I've been meaning to put this up for a while.  Now that we are beginning to see the fruits of training on the pitch I thought I would post the summary below of the ideal main decision making pathway.  This is essentially the decision making tree that we are trying to learn at training so that we make these decisions correctly and instinctively on match day.

The pdf version which is easier to read can be found here http://www.innerdrive.co.uk/files/sbc/The%20Principles%20of%20Football%20Distilled.pdf

Enjoy and see you at training tomorrow
This is why we work on Pace and Tempo of passing during Training
The first team played well and dominated the game for large periods and should have come away with 3 or 4 goals, two unfortunate errors consigned them to a 2-1 defeat.  This was a very unlucky defeat away from home that none the less bodes well for the season ahead
Rumours abound over the future of a top coach after this picture was leaked to the press.  When our correspondent caught up with Coach Edward Watson at The Turney Road training complex he informed us that despite the logical move north of the Watford gap for the Dulwich man, this was unlikely as the young lad pictured with him had agreed to play for SBC 4s next season and would need help settling into the team's passing game.
FC Red won the Annual SBC Xmas 6 aside tournament at Crystal Palace Sports Centre Dome after 3 hours of competition and a tense final which ended 2-2 after full time and 3-2 after extra time against Real Club de Craggy Island.  Congratulations go to all the other teams for a cracking afternoon, to Aeon and Pasch for refing and to John H for organising everything so well.  Full results below

No training today as I am on an "improving forwards" course with the FA up at their excellent new all singing all dancing centre St George's Park in Burton on Trent.  Pictures attached of the indoor pitch we are using which is sized exactly the same as the wembley pitch.  Next door is an outdoor version that even has the same grass. The next session will be next week and will be entirely devoted to forward techniques and practices
And 4th team MOTM votes are in.  Note Watson improved his vote by 100%
