No game, no tell

So last Sunday we were supposed to have a game. The team got ready (although we would have been 15 minutes late and several of the players not in the greatest condition due to drinking hte night before). We go to the field, no teams, no refs and no game.

It is a mystery, cause the fixture list I picked up on Wed proved we had a game.

Well, today the mystery was solved. Apparently, on Thursday the FA (Football Association) called the Treasurer of the team, who is untrustworthy with the team finances and the biggest hypocrite I have ever meet. He is school teacher who is drunk more than the players he complains about being drunk. He even show up to meeting drunk. I have dismissed him from the sidelines and he giving me coach advice several times, neither of us like each other.

So the FA called him about the canceled Sunday game. HE TOLD NO ONE. On Friday, Dennis and Titi, an exec and key player, were talking him about the games for the weekend and he said nothing to them.

Anyway, I went to the FA office told them no to call him.

Welcome to Swazi soccer 31 games into a season that started out great then has just become one frustration after another
