Disgraceful from Luiz Uehara fielding a fletcher cup team (which is by far the worst in that league) against Mosgiel yesterday...

what's the Fletcher Cup?

is this why Mosgiel won 20-0?

Fletcher Cup is second division. 

And Northern lost in this division at the weekend too, so clearly there are some systemic problems with the five years plan at that club.

Div one...

Northern are currently 31 games without a win, 2 wins out of the last 57, this includes 2 wins & 2 draws, their last W was ironically against Mosgiel..

Pretty sad to see the state that Northern are in . If you look at their history in the Chatham Cup - 2 wins and 8 finals , admittedly the last one in the early 60's - they were obviously a great force at one stage. Clubs do go in cycles but they seem to have been on the decline for a number of years


Pretty sad alright. When I was a student in Dunedin I enjoyed playing for Northern / North End United. There were good quality players and coaches (mid 70s).

Oi Oi Edgecumbe... lets have a clean sheet

Lets not forget Luiz Uehara's other record back in 2013

Southern United 0 – 10 Auckland City

For post 1659

Northern AFC this evening has mutually agreed to part ways with head coach Luiz Uehara with immediate effect. The club would like to thank Luiz for his commitment and appreciate his contribution to the club during the last two and a half years and wish him all the best for the future.

Arran Wilkinson has been appointed as interim coach.

@ sawu... article mentions Luiz fielded the Fletcher Cup team. Does belittle the comp and also puts in perspective Mosgiels accomplishment.

@ football south... would love to see the Irish experiment play at least one game in the ODT Premier League (helping Northern).. would leave a positive impression before they upsticks..

Comet is saying Zane Green to Roslyn, what does that mean for Tom Stevens?

Given that it was Tom's technique that gave away the penalty at the weekend, I would say that he will learn a lot from Zane. When you dive at the ball with your knees first, you are not only risking a penalty but a leg injury too. Zane might also provide some might needed backbone to the Roslyn side. 

Trolling, i hope. 

Who played at the weekend? Clearly wasn't a troll

Decision made easier with Tom injured

Probably shouldn't have been pulling a plane then

Picks for this week...

Cavvy to beat Wanaka 5-1 - Cavvy on the bounce

Dunedin Tech to lose to  Green Island 2-4 - cant see a clean sheet, tech will be up for a challenge but lack Islands attacking threat. 

Mosgiel to draw with University 1-1 - Varsity keeper will keep them in the game.

Roslyn to beat Northern - lesser margin than last week, 

Queenstown to go skiing...

which overseas betting agencies are offering odds on domestic football matches these days? bet365 don't have any SPL games listed.

As cultured as Che Bunce's left foot and as profilic as John Lammers

2 out of 4 last week, dont think i would have won my money back...

Wanaka to lose 0-1 to Tech... sorry Wanaka, ive got it wrong the last two weeks, probably get it wrong this week.

Queenstown to lose 1-3 with Mosgiel.... Mosgiel's mobility will be the difference

Northern to lose 2 - 5 to Cavvy, Northern to take it to Cavvy  but run out of steam and quality

Otago University to win 5-2 with Roslyn... season in the balance, will OU turn up to play 90 mins?

Talking to myself... 3 out of 4, got the Wanaka result wrong again. Strange table to see historically dominant Dunedin clubs keeping Northern company.

Green Island to draw 2-2 with Wanaka, no idea both teams have been on a roll..

Caversham to lose 1-3 to Varsity, Changing times, Cavvy & Tech dont seem to be able to attract the quality students.

Dunedin Tech to beat Northern 2-1, Tech have scored 4 goals in 4 games, not expecting fireworks.

Roslyn to lose 1-3 to Queenstown, Roslyn cant seem to buy a result..

Picks for this week are... Top four Gap will widen this week. Picking loses for the bottom four clubs.

Mosgiel 4-1 over Roslyn, 

Varsity 2-0 over Tech, tight game but still bank on Varsity having just a bit more quality.

Northern 0 - 3 GI, GI should be too strong, Northern are deiniftly tighter.

Queenstown 3-1 over Cavvie (home advantage and with Ebbinge playing at home)

good on you for trying to keep some interest in this league Nordkurve..

Looks like;


Queenstown 2 Caversham 1

Northern 1 Green Island 2

Mosgiel 1 Roslyn-Wakari 0

University vs Tech deferred as coach for Tech unavailable...


The class of a premier league when you have a bye, games deferred on a whim due to coach and player availability.. and clubs choosing not to put teams in the top league 🤦♂️

is Ebbinge the clear best player for Q'town? curious what his future holds post-uni

Not sure Ebbinge is... Cavvy won away at QT 9-2, no idea if he or who played for QT. Cavvies twitter feed was quite decent.

Not sure what is up with the incorrect results and late postings from Football South. They have enough staff not playing to handle the  posting. There is only 7 phone calls they need to make or 14 managers that need to text.

Picks that will never make money at the TAB... 

On the rabbit patch, Mosgiel to take the points...

A draw between Tech and Queenstown. Tech seems to be struggling to score.

Green Island vs Varsity is a close game... Varsity are grinding out good wins, Island can be explosive, think ill go for a draw 2-2.

Big call but wouldn't be surprised if Northern get a point this weekend. It will depend on how Wanaka travel and their depth.

The Horse is looking hobbled on four points. 

The split is looking like it will be Island, Varsity, Mosgiel and either Wanaka/Queenstown or the outside chance Cavvy.

Interesting round which will probably decide the final four.

Ill keep talking to myself... 

Start at the lower end of the table... (definitely a new experience)

Roslyn vs Cavvy... probably Cavvy, they can score goals and Roslyn are having a tough time.

Mosgiel vs Tech... Tech have only scored against Roslyn, Northern and Wanaka, could be another blood bath.

Wanaka vs Varsity.. As much as Wanaka will want this result it will be a win to Varsity. Varsity probably the best squad in the league.

Queenstown vs GI.. two weeks ago I would have picked a GI win, then Queenstown demolish Tech. Always a tough trip to Queenstown, pick a draw.

You may feel like you're talking to yourself - however I'm sure there's a lot of people listening!  Go well

as a JAFA, love to hear who's who in the regional league title races - helps a ton. bigger presence on this forum than the NRFL :)

as an aside, who do we reckon are the real key players for each side? some seem obvious, for example taking a look at Wanaka's side Adam Hewson sticks out like a sore thumb. very difficult to find info on the league that's not from the ODT or here

If you want to talk some more, listing the results on here following your predictions would be really cool, for lazy people like me who would love to know, but don't get around to searching for them. Hoping for an Invercargill team next year.

Oi Oi Edgecumbe... lets have a clean sheet
