It's technically 7s as we use 7-a-side goals and play on a pitch about 60m in length, just seldom actually get 7 v 7, so headers aren't all that rare. I've got three so far this year, really should have at least twice that but I can never seem to get a proper connection with my head - I usually head it over or straight at the keeper. Probably the most satisfying goal I've ever scored was a diving header in the style of Bouzid v. Celtic. Pinilla

Off to Cambodia next week to see Pol Pot’s shoes.

Great to hear you're enjoying it; make sure you regale every so often us with Cambodian equivalencies of those night bus trips back to Mussie. Monty Chuckle

Safe travels.

Aye same tbf Laugh I just try and encourage them to always keep it simple, just give me a nice easy 2 yard pass and that's your job done, just get in the way of the other team beyond that.

Used to play religiously until I broke my leg playing in goals(in an 11s game) played about a year later and about the week after I  broke my arm  Warnock

So played a couple of months back for the first time in 4 years.  Crowe Fuck me it was grim.

Looking to get back into it so if anyone wants a random guy off TH to make up numbers then  Sound

How does one get involved when they've not kicked a ball since primary school? Asking for a friend.

How do you get to your 30s, as a football fan, without having played football since you were a wee kid? Dismay

Genuinely think TH 5s should happen. Or 7s if there’s enough interest.

Another one for the list - the cunt who says he's coming but backs out right before the game and fucks the whole thing. Just had that happen to me just now, two last-minute dropouts half an hour before we were supposed to start. Mugbie

I've been trying to sort a midweek game for ages but just not enough people showing up to make it worthwhile and too many folk just not showing up after confirming.  Monty Oh Well

Aye, no shows are brutal. 5 v 4. Fat Cunt The 5 don't try as it's quite embarrassing to be giving it maximum effort against 3 guys and a total duffer who is along for the first time, the 4 have already given up before game has started. You feel like you would all be as well just going home. Laugh
