Err.. that doesn't work. You mean right-hand side? Or starting in the fingers of the left hand and finishing at the wrist....?

Presumably he's stronger pull-side? ;-)

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...
Perhaps relied was the wrong word, but using it at least 50% of the time... :roll:

Th can't defend, everyone knows that  :P

Lol.

No it's just about 200% harder to shoot a push snake in that position.

Yeah... then Oxford can become another bunch of Johnny No-Talent clones who can only brush pass and snake.  LOL.   :lol:

Lol, irony Craig "snaking at Manchester" Fothergill.  :roll:

For the record I wasn't having a slur at Oxford's play, rather just offering valid advice (in my opinion) if they want to give us a better match next time.

Also, from what I saw of their forwards (in the most part) - Jee Ha - snaker. Mark Nubbert - snaker. Bernhard - snaker. Jeremy Wu - snaker.

Thank you.

Steve's just a little sore about the Siblings' Match... :P

Though seriously, we do need to learn proper passes to do better.
But having some nice midfield shots under our belt as well doesn't do any harm. It's more exciting. And it seems to surprise many Pros a lot - lets you pull up surprising results in tournaments.

Thanks for coming guys, had a good day.

Re: midfield snaking, I think its great. I'm sure Mark was scoring a higher % on the 5 than steve was scoring with his boring Brush-pass snakes. Perhaps some further development with the shot and it could become a successful tournament shot.

Mark, this was a great game, you picked your shots well and showed that you've adopted an effective, unorthodox, Nubbert-esque style of play which is great to see. You also have a cut back pull snake that i would be proud of  :lol:

Wasn't Dr Baker if that's who you're referring too. Our society was formed by a group of finalists, with our first President being Rishi Mehta apparently, but this is before my time.
