Frustration on the Field
This have been occupying my mental resources recently (excluding the usual amount of dirt, non-sense and romance):
– Football, how to play it well and how to GET to play it well. I was so frustrated today at the game and only partly because I let in the only goal in the game in the last minute. But why was I standing there in the first place? I just have to say it: With this squad, we'd been better off if I'd played anywhere else, with a scarecrow as a goalkeeper. I know, almost everyone tend to over-estimate their capacity on the field and I know that I'm not good. But I'm not COMPLETELY clueless as to what to do with the ball and what to do without it. GRRR! (first half, playing as THE central defender, went fine) Damn, I wished to stay extremely modest and most of all, not whine about team mates. That's one of the big sins in football, along with recklessness, arrogance and pride. But GOD, today was tough.
