[this was in response to a deleted post...]
It's also about time that some games were played on tornado. But Oxford refused to play any games on it despite the fact that we are a multi-table society and have home advantage. So expect some short-format games on our one garlando.

I agree with you Jon but i think you've taken the thread further off topic. Perhaps Mods could start a new thread and move the relevant posts so this thread can be devoted to how much Warwick are going to destroy the losers a.k.a Oxford.  8)

Totally agree. Mods feel free to move all this crap.

Indeed it looks like there is about to be a massacre.

Tom what is your excuse for still being at Warwick?

Women in teams discussion split off so you guys can get on with the serious business of trash-talking each other to (the) death.

Warwick 12 Oxford 4

Warwick
A: Tom Burdett & Adam Baker W3 L1
B: Steve Lyall & Tom Hampson W3 L1
C: Andrew Nubbert & Colin Fallon W4 L0
D: Joe Latimer & Rich Marsh W2 L2


Oxford
1: Jee Ha Kim & Michael Hart W1 L3
2: Mark Nubbert & Peter Franklin W2 L2
3: Bernhard Elsner & Christopher Chan W1 L3
4: Jeremy Wu & Liam Donovan W0 L4


A1 5-3 4-5 5-4
A2 3-5 5-4 4-5
A3 5-4 5-1
A4 5-0 5-3


B1 4-5 5-2 3-5
B2 5-1 3-5 5-0
B3 3-5 5-0 5-2
B4 5-1 4-5 5-3

C1 5-1 5-2
C2 5-3 5-0
C3 5-2 5-3
C4 5-1 5-1

D1 5-3 5-2

D2 3-5 4-5
D3 4-5 5-4 1-5

D4 5-4 5-1

The game started well for Warwick going 2-0 up, but then Pete Franklin & Mark Nubbert edged Tom B & Adam with a ridiculous number of midfield snakes to get Oxford on the board. Warwick pulled ahead to 7-1 but couldn't get the win as Oxford mounted a comeback to 8-4 with all their players putting on impressive performances, however Warwick moved away in the last 4 games.

Cheers for coming up for the match. Maybe next year when our top 5 players (Tom B, Tom H, Steve, Nub, Joe L) have all graduated, the result will be closer.

Afterwards we held a 2BRBDYP won by Tom Burdett & Colin Fallon on goal difference over Tom Hampson and Mark Nubbert.

Also worth pointing out that the Nubbert brothers defeated the Lyall brothers 9-6 in a serious game after the DYP. 8)

Thank you very much for today Warwick - great foos and fun, though we did filth our way in a lot  :P
Loved midfield snaking just owning everyone - I too had to resort to them to make comebacks...  8)

12-4, a pleasing result bearing in mind that we (and probably everyone else) expected worse... well done Oxford, you put up a good fight there!
And well done Warwick!

Looking forward to the next round of Oxford vs. Warwick when they too finally lose their Pros and Pro-Masters  :P

PS. Congrats to the Nubbert Bros. (u-l Lyall Bros.)

Thanks a lot Warwick, it's always a pleasure to have a free lesson from you guys. Thanks for the hack-friendly 5-3 format too, I fear we can't attribute many of our 4 points to much less than sheer shock factor.

I look forward to next year's rematch, hopefully we can provide more of a challenge.

And err yea, u-l Lyalls  :wink:

Thanks for coming up Oxford.

A bit blunt but I think it's about time it needs saying: You guys should start learning some proper passes if you want to get better and do well at tournaments (obviously you might not be interested in this in which case fair enough) rather than a 5 bar snake and an assortment of other hacks - Th and I only let in 1 the whole time cos we knew how to defend it. If you rely on something so easy to defend you're gonna struggle against good players even if it may work in your Uni league.

Anyway thanks for the games and see you at Liverpool

Steve

In fairness though you do have a point, but I think it's a little harsh to say we relied on it, we didn't score any from midfield in our 2-0 game against Rich and Joe. And when you and TH only let in 1 the whole time, how come all your games went to the third leg? Our goals must have come from somewhere...

It doesn't even work well against the good players of the Oxfoos league...

Before the match Jee Ha and I reckoned 12-4 was about the best we could hope for, so... well done Oxford! We were actually pretty scared of a white wash  :oops:. Of course if I'd been playing it would've been a different story... and there's some guy called Paddy who couldn't make the game either, apparently he's not bad.

Be fair, it was a percentage shot until someone told Teeb and Adam how to defend it ...  :lol:

Were you shooting it left-handed? With an inverted grip or not?

It was Mark up front.  It is left-handed - I think he does it just with his wrist on the left-hand side of the handle.
