I am not in the habit of writing up bad performances but for journalistic integrity, I thought I would convey last weeks result in as few words as possible.
17-2 to OMD UK.
They were very good. Leading from the back with a keeper who threw himself at everything and distributed the ball with precision, up to their big center forward who never appeared to be marked (be it by good movement off the ball or terrible marking), the Marinthians were made to look terribly ordinary.
Even with a few players out, we really should still have done better. A lot better.
Let's hope we don't experience the same humiliation against Zenith this week. COME ON MARINTHIANS!!

Another game and another victory, Marinthians march on. Unfortunately, I was once again not in attendance but reporting and photography are courtesy to our two favourite pitchside reporters, Barbara and Karen.
"Agenda 21 came out strong drawing first blood 5 minutes in. With 3 subs available to our none, it looked like they were going to run circles around us. So it was nail-biting stuff until 5 minutes later, Will opened our game. From then on, it was a land slide. Agenda saw the goals again 34 minutes in, and came back fighting with 5 minutes left, but it was a classic case of “too little too late”.
In spite of Marin’s awesome display of team work and skills, I would nominate Steve as man of the match, who played goalie for Agenda 21 for the whole match. The man has skills, and had it not been for him, Marin’s score would have looked more like a cricket game"
So another comfortable victory making that 3 wins on the trot for the Marinthians. Next week sees up against OMD UK once again, with the Marinthians keen to overturn their previous defeat. Come down and support, and join us for a swift post game beverage in our local boozer!
