Bosnich vs The Football Sack: Round Seven

-

We’re back for another week of battle against Bozza’s Marvelous Men.

It was The Football Sack who struck first blood last week, getting the first points on the board thanks to an early goal from Henrique.

Bozza would, as always, have first choice of players to construct his team of the week and selected another attacking 4-3-3. Would it be enough to secure him a result in our Football Manager 2016 simulator series?

Bozza’s troops would come flying out of the gates to put last weeks dissapointment behind them. Thomas Broich was allowed too much space out on the flank and his curling ball in behind The Football Sack’s defence was turned home by Henrique in the first minute of the game. Who said art doesn’t imitate life?

The Marvelous Men would strike again five minutes later even as their opposition were still reeling from coneding that early strike. A nice bit of link up between Bozza’s forward line opened up some room for Gui Finkler on the edge of the box.

His long range strike was well tipped onto the bar by Thomas Sorensen but the keeper was helpless to stop Thomas Broich tapping in the rebound. The Football Sack barely got a sniff of the play for the remainder of the half and could have been down even more if it wasn’t for a Finkler miss.

But whatever was said in that virtual dressing room must have been Coach Eric Taylor esque as The Football Sack came out with a point to prove.

With ten minutes gone in the second half, Jimmy Jeggo powered his way through Bozza’s midfield and weaved his way into the box. His low shot could only be pushed back into the box by Mark Birighitti for Craig Goodwin to slot home.

The Football Sack had serious control of the game for the rest of the half and grabbed a deserved equaliser with twenty minutes to play. Goodwin whipped a ball into the box that was flicked off the head of Federico Piovaccari and into the path of Harry Novillo. The Frenchman made no mistake from so close in.

From there on in neither side looked to really push the other, seemingly content sharing the points. The final whistle would blow to leave it all square at 2-2.

Standings

A true game of two halves as Bozza’s early blitz was cancelled out by a stunning comeback from The Football Sack in the second term.
