From our last post, we were on top of the league by 6 points and the whole squad are starting to dream of winning an unexpected title. However, there was still a long way to go.
Our next five games were unbeaten, as the tactic seem to be effective regardless of the strength of the opposition. Just a shame we could only draw our away games, we could have extended our lead in the league. Unfortunately, in the next match, we hit a road bump when we lost 2-0 at home to AS Venus. It was not even a close game; we were completely outclassed.
We were now only two points ahead of them; could the hype train be on the brink of derailing?
Nope, the train resumed normally with 3 wins and a draw in the next 4 games. After most of our rivals had faltered, we were 7 points ahead of AS Venus now and an unassailable goal difference.
I then decided to rotate the squad in the last three games. Somehow, we managed to stay unbeaten and finished the season on 83 points, 6 points ahead of AS Venus.
The table above also shows the teams that were involved in the playoffs. Apparently, in the semi-final stage, the first-placed team plays the fourth-placed team and the second and third-placed teams play with each other.
Unfortunately, this meant that we had to play AS Tefana again and I was not feeling confident of this tie. We had lost heavily against them the last time and I needed to make sure our defence would be able to handle their firepower.
Could this be my chance of winning a significant silverware?
Well, that’s all for now but I might record the playoffs and post it on YouTube in a separate post. If not, it will just be another text post like this one. Until then!
