Why should that have anything to do with it. Im sure theres plenty of footballers who love themselves.

Bevin? Even Clapham - or now too old?

Bevin thanks to his US college degree has a pretty solid career outside football and I suspect would be up for a decent sized pay drop to join the Phoenix so I reckon that's unlikely.

Lads did themselves proud. Real shame they turned over 3 soft goals, but by all means they proved they were good enough to compete at that level.

Well done lads, great effort.

Yeah great effort. Will be very interesting to see what Handy Prem players Rudan, will be inviting in to trial over the mid season break.

Bevin? Even Clapham - or now too old?

JHS, Bevin and Schrijvers were standouts for me in that game (Clapham good but failed many touches and looked uncomfortable before finally settling in). First two I'd take in a heartbeat, Schrijvers I'm not sure how good he's been in the league but he's only pretty young so could improve

I can't be the only one who thinks TW absolutely butchered that? Amateur or not, they were up 3-0 in a knockout match.....

According to informed sources on the Canterbury United thread, "loves himself"

Yeah, a lot of the comments about him in that thread are beyond ridiculous

Don't listen to some of that. We'd have him back in a minute's notice.

Yeah, it's hard facts but ultimately we did lose focus big time (can't blame them, an amateur side winning 3-0 against champions of one of the biggest money leagues in the world would be expected to be complacent) and that goal before half time was a death sentence. Did very well to keep them out for the most part for two 30-minute spells before and after Berg's goal.

Berg reputedly on US $4mill. And that Brazilian looked like he could have played through the whole TW team for fun.

I wouldn't expect any player to be complacent when playing what is for many the biggest match of their life.

Never known Claps to be like that over the 15 or so years I have been watching him play and covering the game down here in ChCh.

These guys weren't expected to be ahead at all let alone being 3-0 up though, and with it being against such a good team I wouldn't be surprised if they let down their guard a bit. Doesn't matter though they made us proud!

TW were not complacent, I think Al Ain were expecting to win and finally woke up to play at their level. Still proud of TW
