    Hey!

    Thought I'd make a thread to discuss the games at these two events!

    True. Although it does show the need to give the No2 game experience. To be fair to Amy, she also didn't nearly backheel the ball into her own net :eek:

    Argentina's PC routines were top class, and England couldn't find an answer. The win was deserved but the scoreline perhaps a tad flattering (but only a little bit). I guess the team suffered from a bit of nerves (a couple of panicked passes) and that cohesion of the Rio squad was missing. This isn't surprising considering the changes that have happened. Hopefully the result was just teething problems from not having played together.

    Yeah, the passes to their centre forwards were something I’d expect to see from my club’s 3rd/4th teams

    But can’t fault the Argentinian PC routines and that backhand shot

    The 50/50 possession stat shows that they just made the most of their chances

    For those of you who have already been this week - which station would you recommend getting off at, Leyton or Stratford?

    Or Stratford plus 308 bus towards Clapton Pond (not Wanstead) and get off at the Velodrome stop.
