It was Easter Sunday, the sun was setting, Japan were getting slapped by the one and (thankfully) only Fighting Cockheads FC and Eric’s nowhere to be seen but who’d surprised at that?
Sunday’s game saw us line up against the infamous back ups Tri Hai FC. Struggling for players as it was Colin ...
With the 5-2 Ashes drubbing fresh in the memory, Raiders arrived at the Tri Hai stadium in confident, buoyant mood, despite the brief 48-hour respite from seeing off an always pesky Japan side. They also arrived far more sober, with ‘Christ’ and Eric smelling more like their usual Africa Lynx Christmas boxsets than ...
The long trip to Gia Phu stadium for the Vikings ended in a respectable 2..2 draw against the home team of Wao FC.
Ed Cascarino made his physical strength and determined running count with 2 goals. A fine display that fully deserved the man of the match award.
A number of good displays are certainly worthy of note. ...
Away game... this time the Saigon Raiders actually had to
leave their safe haven “D2” to play somewhere where they have never seen a

yet another interesting fixture for us Vikings, the disciplined but definitely
beatable Japan FC. ARE YOU READY TO EAT SOME SUSHI?
Vikings are coming back from injuries, getting fit and ready to do battle in
the starting eleven, however this gives the two coaches, Nick and Jonas, weekly
headaches (and ...
More of the same? You might think that when
looking at the result of Vikings 2 – Saints 4. You’d be right. However, you’d
be wrong too. The score was more of the same, as were the sloppy goals conceded
and the lack of communication. Nonetheless, there was much to be optimistic
about in a spirted Viking’s perform...
SIFL League Game
was Match day #2 in the SIFL league and it was going to be another showdown,
another in house derby, another Classico between the Raiders and the
Jonas ordered all Vikings to be at the pitch again the usual 3 hours before and
everyone was going to have a quick pop quiz on our ...
As if we were being spat on by a thousand Covid patients, we scrambled inside. Clambering to quell the onslaught, the bar staff employed their most effective wind shield.
