The second half saw The Hague with more numerous chances at goal but was stifled, while NEC decided to use four strikers in a desperate bid to even the score but to no avail. Final score 1-0, a good win for Paul's ADO against a struggling team.

Oct 22 2011 Torhout 0-3 Ronse

Jeff's KM Torhout lost at home against a very tough Ronse team today. Ronse a team of mostly French descent players imposed its will against the home team defeating them 0-3. At the early stages of the game, Ronse was already imposing its will against the home team. There was a feeling of "when" they will score rather than 'if'. When the dam broke, it poured. Goals by Ronse at the 44th minute was followed immediately at the next minute, 0-2 Ronse at the half. 

Try as they may, the home team could not find the back of the net(a problem they have had since the beginning of the season). At the 66th minute Ronse scored again for the last time in the game, final score 0-3 Ronse.

With a new coach in Thorsten Fink and a home fixture against a good Wolfsburg team, hopes were high for a new beginning in the home arena. Unfortunately, hopes were dashed immediately with just a little over 60 seconds having gone bye when the opponent scored a goal to make it 1-0, Wolfburg! Seemingly content with the lead, Wolfsburg sat on their lead.

Dennis Cagara's struggling Lyngby BK played a home game against Jerry Lucena's Superliga power house AGF Aarhus. In what on paper would seem like an easy game for the visitors, Cagara's team tried its best not to disappoint its long suffering fans. Striking early and striking first. Lyngby scored a goal on the 26th minute, holding on to the lead until AGF got on the board to tie the game from a free kick at the 68th minute.

It was a small victory for the Lyngby team but left a bitter taste with AGF as the tie has been its third in as many games.

The Cloverleaf returns with a vengeance and once again secures its first place standing in the 2.Bundesliga.

TEAM REPORT: Ray Anthony Jonsson/Grindavík/Úrvalsdeild, Iceland(1st Tier)

Ray plays the midfield position for Grindavik.
OCTOBER 22 (wiking) The playing coach of Ray Jonsson's team has decided to hang up his clipboard and continue on as a player. Olafur Orn Bjarnason, starred in the last game of the season, and was the main catalyst of the improbable win against a very strong opponent and saved the team from relegation. He scored a goal and was the Captain of the defense that held the opponent ÍBV, scoreless.

Priority now is to find a new coach who will help lift up Grindavík from its previous 10th place finish.

The 2011 season ended in October and will resume again in May 2012.

MATCH REPORT: Rob Gier/Ascot United/Uhlsport Premier League, UK(9th Tier)

Oct 18 2011 Ascot United 3-2 Shrivenham FC

The expected defensive upgrade has finally happened for Rob's Ascot United. A new central defender has been signed and started to produce a much needed win for the Yellamen. Although, in the beginning things looked like the same old Ascot U team was playing as they went down 2 to 0 early. Fortunately the new lineup stiffened and the offense produced just enough to score a win for Ascot. The Yellamen's last win was Sept 17th against Fairford Town.

Nate Burkey: Man on Fire !

October 21 (wiking) - Nate Burkey just got his 2nd Hat trick in as many games! To be precise he had 4 goals in the game against Schwarz FC in yesterday Oct 20th, game. That gives him 7 goals in two games and powers his team, Kaya FC, into the UFL's "round 16," the first team to make it there.

Its great to see Nate getting more work as a featured striker/forward. Hopefully his continued good play will carry over to the AFC Challenge Cup. I've got a feeling he's going to start beside Phil if he continues what he's been doing.

Yes there's Mark H, Angel and Mr Palami's penchant for surprising us with his new "acquisitions" from Europe. But until then, good luck and good going to Nate!

James Leigh Gunn: Once and future Azkal?

OCTOBER 20 (wiking) – James Leigh Gunn, 31, is a veteran player of the Philippines national football team. Although his last appearance was in 2006, he is still an active professional football player, plying his trade in his home base of Australia.
His club is Fraser Park FC, a club founded way back in 1961 and won promotion in 2000 to the NSW Division 1, the third tier in Australian football.
Fraser Park FC’s 2011 season has recently ended in August with FPFC coming in at 10th in the 12-club league.
Unfortunately information is hard to come by for Australian soccer in the 3rd tier, so goals made and starting rosters are imprecise. But we do know that he plays in offense, mostly as a striker and sometimes winger, and is quite involved in the games.
