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. The grating was a truly impressive marvel of engineering, designed to protect patrons from the unpredictable tropic surges of Vietnam. We weren’t to ...
Saturday the 12th of
September was supposed to be a relaxed and calm day. We were gonna play some
Masteri FC team, after watch the Raiders win their game and have some beers at
because the opponent of the Raiders dropped out it was time for another in
instead I had to ...
Raiders faced up against the French in the plate semi-final and
produced a victory in a game which was as comfortable as it could be for the
recently crowned champions. After Coach Colin’s penultimate pre-match team talk
was interrupted by an apologetic 34 year old teenager (oooo sorry!), the tone

As the noon-sun peaked through a break in the blackout curtains- Aron aka The Wall slowly roused from his deep slumber. As he unwrapped himself from the mountain of female flesh lying naked on top of him, he smiled wryly… last night was good… apparently. He shook the 2 sirens from their sleep… “Ladies, time to ...
It was a sweltering Sunday afternoon. With the title wrapped up with and two games to go you would have thought that complacency would have been the order of the day. But one thing was clear from the warmup, no turkeys were getting stuffed today.

The Vikings returned from the extended
mid-season break with much of the talk about showing some spirit, fighting to
the end and maybe trying to pick up a couple of points before the end of the
season. The mentality of the team turned 180 degrees, however, after the
impressive friendly win against the Japanese last week ...
Olympique captured celebrating Sunday's victory
A game that
could have gone differently had Raiders taken an early lead. Unfortunately, it
wasn’t meant to be and Raiders start life after quarantine with a loss. There
is one thing that all Raiders can agree on when waking up this morning. It was
not fun yesterday! ...
After almost two
months without a Raiders fixture many of the lads were desperate for a game of
football. That desperate that they all thought it would be a good idea to play
in the 40-degree Saigon heat. Usually the heat helps the local teams as they
are more accustomed to the climate here, looking at the score ...
A friendly against one of the best teams in the city after a long spell off, promised to be a very close encounter.
