Game#14 6-5-2 23 League Points

AAAAHHHH!!. So most my players where all showing up late, 4 players without boots (soccer shoes) its a problem here but never before on game day.

So I got mad and yelled at them about needing to be personally responsable for themselves. The execs didn't order a khumbi so that was late, thank God Dennis saved the day with khumbi.

We showed up 10 minutes past the game time, if it was 30 min it would have been canceled. This is are 16th game together and in 2011 they have been very sloppy & this was the pinancle.

I was so mad I let the Assistant Coach set the team, he put players where I wouldn't have. And I basically didn't do much coaching, I wanted the players to know I was seriously mad at them.

Anyway, we scored early. And then scored again at the beginning of the 2nd, then let in a dumb goal and then another dumb goal. Even though it was a draw it was really a loss.

2011 keeps getting worse for the team, I am not sure why either. By the way, this was the first and only time I got mad at the team.
