Figured we may as well have a proper thread for league football, so here it is. My reserves are playing against a team called Ghost Chips United, or GCU for short. Humour on two different levels.

2-3 away win over Pukekohe United sees Earthquake City up into 11th and 8 points above the relegation zone with 6 to play. Some tricky fixtures ahead though so its far too early to celebrate. Wish more of the teams were from Pukekohe - I've played four, won four against the two sides (United and Athletic) in our league.

In less happy news, it looks as if CFC WhatTheFudge is heading for administration. Haven't been active since April 14...

1-0 win over the EP reserves kept my team on the climb. Now sitting in 9th place. Next 3 games are against teams well below everyone else in points so hopefully I can get 3 wins.

My reserves are at the bottom table. All I want my reserves to do is beat the Shaky Boys and overtake them on the table.

Terrible, terrible game by Tawa FC. 3-1 loss. Not what you would expect from promotion contenders.

2-1 win for Peow FC. Had a player get his second yellow in the 80th minute but we managed to hold on. This result catapults me up to 6th on the table. Facing the 16th placed team next so hopefully I can grab another win as there is a bit of a gap between me and the 5th place side.

I need 7 points to secure a spot outside the relegation zone.

I had a very handy 1-1 draw against the team at the top of the premiership. Though teams below me did win,so am 2 points clear of relegation playoff zone. 

It's annoying as I probably have a starting 11 to maybe push it for the top 6,but its depth that I struggle to build up. 

4 games left in the season now,does anyone else have interesting finishes to the season ahead?

There's a two way battle for the 1st place in our league, between Tawa and Wellington United. United have the upper hand at the moment, two points ahead of me. Going right to the wire.

RRRRivals! 

It's a shame you guys don't play each other again in any of the last 4 games with a finish like that,would be a cracker.

I just checked the fixtures to see if it was going to come down to a game against each other :(

Ah well, at least I've got a B team next, so hopefully United trip up.

A 2-0 win took me closer to breaking into the top 5. Facing a few tough teams in the last few games so it will be hard to get any higher.

 3-0 win, now in 2nd 9 points behind the leader and 7 points clear of 3rd. Will be happy if it stays that way!

You'd really have to choke to blow that one. My B team ended up on the other end of that league table haha

You're dreaming. Shaky Boys thumped your rabble 4-0. Haven't been beaten by either of the other two B teams, three wins and a draw.

First team had a 3-2 win at home. 9 points ahead of relegation zone (C.F.C WhatTheFudge incidentally) with three to play. Ahead on goal difference by 21 too, so its looking good for us to avoid the drop. Might have to set some ultra-defensive tactics to try and meet the season target of goals conceded (can't ship more than four in the final three games to meet it).

6-0 win for me today, and Wellington United could only manage a draw, so we are both on 70 points now! They are ahead of Tawa on goal difference, 58 as opposed to 53, so I will probably need to win all my games and hope maynard slips up to be able to take 1st place.

Not a good night for my teams...

First team lost 1-0 meaning it is unlikely I will climb any higher than 6th with 5th place being 4 points ahead of me and only 3 games remaining. Last 3 games are also against tough opponents although I am pretty much clear of relagation zone.

Reserves got thumped by Shaky Boys solidifying my spot at the bottom of the table as well as being the biggest joke around with 166 goals conceded.

A HUGE round for The Trains. With three games to play they have finally climbed out of the relegation zone.

Lokomotiv pulled out a 0 - 1 away win against Linwood FC... which was fantastic... a much needed 3 points. However what made it even better was that Kiwi Yoghurt Hotspur lost 1 - 0 to The Grudge, AND Parakai Football Club lost 2 - 1 Gore FC, AND Hamilton Tiger Cats were drawn 2 - 2 away to BHB Water Ballooners, but the Ballooners scorted deep into injury time to win it 3 -2!

Oh Daddio. Singing on the Train were in full cry on the train on the way home to Homebush Road. "We're stayin' up! We're stayin' up, in this league..."

Incredible stamina. No shame. Yellow Fever.

Phoenix fans. We have to win them over one fan at a time.

So after beating TeeDubs I can't finish anywhere other than 2nd. Promotion secure!

Now I'm gonna play all my young guys for the next couple of games but I have a question about that - how much difference does playing games make to a player's development?
