Game #30 14-9-7 51 Points

So after missing 4 games by being back in the US of A.

Back on the sidelines.

Some of the same old shit. Players without boots, late players, playing with 10 men at the Khumbi and uniforms were on time.

So we started with 10 men again causone of the guys in the starting line as we were going to the game had to get out of the Khumbi to go get his shoes, he sat around the clubhouse for over an hour. I ended up taking him off the starting line up and put in another player who showed up as the Khumbi was leaving. My rule is that player doesn't start.

So he went in like 10 minutes later and play terrible.

We scored a really great goal in the 1st half and we were playing 4-3-3, so i did a reverse BTA and switched to 4-4-2 and brought in a middle fielder who also showed up with no boots. So winning 1-0 I could see the defense was getting tried. So I subbed out the late player for the player who jumped out to get his boots, he ended up arriving about 20 minutes late. Oh, just after half time another player showed up, although he was working and came right after his swift.

It all worked out cause the sub coming in was more defense which is what I needed.

It was great to be back on the sidelines yelling, coaching and joking.
