Sam Mosley looks back at an incredible month for The Sharks.
Hello again. Today, I’d like to recap on what has been a crazy month of football for The Sharks. I mean, any month you score eleven and concede eleven is crazy, but factor we played four games, one of those was 0-0 and another a 0-4 reverse, it makes it even more incredible. It must be some kind of record! The only downside is the fact we scored so many goals and only came away with seven points.
First up, Bangkok Utd, away. I had intended to go to the match, but family commitments came first and I couldn’t, much to my regret! 4-2, against a team nicely placed in the league at the time, in their back yard, was a great result and a testament to the lads. This was straight after our first win of the season so the pessimism inside of me was dwindling.
Then on to the Sukothai game. A 0-0 we should have scored three in. One was an absolute sitter, which was more difficult to miss! But never mind, a point away from home is always a well earned point.
Next came what can only be described as a freak game and easily the most entertaining game I’ve ever been to. 7-5 to the Sharks, against Chiang Mai, a team who I think will struggle this season. We should have wrapped it up a few times, in fact we had a three goal lead twice so you would think it was won. But no, not us. We somehow managed to let a team that had conceded six away from home come within one goal of a draw. Only Chonburi!
However, our late goal sealed a fantastic win and topped off a great game to watch, in which our star man, Lukian scored five. I can see him getting 25+ this season, with ease. They’ll do well not to lose him next year to one of the “big boys”.
Onto the final fixture of the month, away at Nakhon Ratchasima. Unfortunately, I missed this game, as it was more or less impossible to find it on True Visions and my I-pad was occupied by my other team, Leeds United, but I did begrudgingly watch the highlights to hopefully gain some insight into the loss. I couldn’t. I can only repeat myself; “poor defending” “no organization” “no leaders”. I won’t go into it just read any of my previous negative match reports and you’ll get the gist.
Well, that’s it from me this time. Hopefully, the last hammering in Korat isn’t a catalyst for a poor run in the league and we can bounce back on the 11th of May, against Trat. And here’s hoping that it’s another high scoring month, just more tipped in our favour!
