OFLM division 1 Round-up
Division 1 - Week 2 Preview.
After an interesting first week the OFLM’s elite league comes back with some mouth-watering ties for Week 2.
First up its Pete Cross and his Scrutlington Rovers side. They came back from the dead at Perfect City last week and now they face Matt Peters FC West Leigh. It’s already being dubbed as a super tie and both managers know that 3 points would be a big, big coup for early dominance in the division. Whist a draw would stop Scrutlington from getting into their stride it would slow down FC West Leigh’s early pace which has been a key to their huge success in recent years.

Prediction – Draw

Mad man Milo Dunne still believes his side are top 3 material but this week he’s up against Ben Walker’s Perfect City. Both these sides’ squandered leads last week and both these sides will not accept a draw this week. It’s been dubbed win or bust early on for two great pretenders to the league title. Good starts were required and Milo Dunne’s excuse last week was blaming a secret code for his side squandering a lead to Spartak. Ben Walker on the other hand tore his hair out as Scrutlington came back when it seemed the perfect start for City.

Prediction – Perfect City Win

Mark Griffiths will be hoping to set an early pace against newly promoted Cornish Revolution. Chris Conway already has done the Incredibles a big favour by dispatching early league title favourites Anfield Ducks 2-1 on the opening day of the season. He will be hoping to grab more unexpected points this week but knows full well that it is a hard task against one of the most feared teams in the history of OFLM.

Prediction – Incredibles Win

Olympic Milan will be hoping to add early misery onto Lorne Rangers as well as get one last crack ast the league title underway. A good 6-3 win over Wyndamvale last week along with Lorne’s shocking 5-2 defeat home defeat leaves the pundits and the bookies slashing odds on an Olympic Milan win. Already the best figures in the markets show that many punters are going for the 9.5 goals or more option.

Prediction – Olympic Milan Win

Despite the glamour ties and big clubs games Real Revolution have a real chance to go top in the league, if only for a week. They play Johnny Walkers Dukla Pumpherston and another win against the so-called league whipping boys is surely on the cards to add to their great 5-2 victory last week. A big result could propel them to the summit of the league and it would give manager Michael Lippett the satisfaction of saying “I was top once,”… every managers dream.

Prediction - Real Revolution Win

Adi Burke’s men are away to Wyndamvale Wombats and being dubbed as a crucial 3 points early on by the visitors suggests that Burke’s side are looking to slot into mid table security from a very early stage. The Wombats know they can score goals and will be looking to pepper Spartak with everything they have just they cannot defend against quality as was evident last week against Milan.

Prediction - Draw

FC Palace were unlucky last week whilst The Dublin Dominators were hammered. Coming up as Champions is one thing but against a sturdy side like Palace should prove a tough test for newly promoted home team. Mark McConnell knows points against the mid table sides are vital in the Dominators quest for survival and Richard Mortimer knows that three points against relegation fodder is a must in his quest for mid-table sticking about.

Prediction – Palace Win

And Finally Tower of Revolution’s manager Dan James is looking closely at the situation regarding Anfield Ducks manager Andy Docherty. His whereabouts remain a mystery and it has already had a massive effect last week. The Ducks the early favourites lost to Cornish Revolution a side they should be beating and this week they face T.O.R another side they should be beating. If they squander points at this one it could be all but over for the early league favourites. Dan James on the other hand smells blood and is hoping for a positive result in his sides struggle for survival which has started well with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Dukla Pumpherston last week.

Prediction – Anfield Ducks Win (If Docho gets his act together!)

OFLM division 2 Round-up
Coolios Ace Whilst Breffni give Lords the Blues.
A couple of the main contenders for promotion to Division 1 unveiled themselves this week, as both AC Coolios and Breffni Blues registered big wins to send them to the top two places in the table.

Coolios’ mixture of youth and experience took full advantage of a Dublin side missing a recognised keeper, to thrash them 8-0; with Venturo Foxe grabbing half the goals to make him the early leader of the Divisional top scorers. “The manager has had a plan for the side for quite a while”, Foxe said after the game, “I’m happy to be part of the plan, and happy to be part of a promotion push.”

Kenneth Dobbinson’s 5-1 victory at The Dark Lords was all the more impressive, not simply because it was away from home against another promotion contender, but because manager Kenneth Dobbinson completely tactically out-thought old FLM warhorse Stuart Williams. Club chairman Gwyn Evans spoke after the game of Dobbinson’s importance to the club: “he’s the most talented Kenneth I know”, his Chairman gushed.

Surprise of the day was possibly that there was not a single draw in the Division. Dubai Dessert and Falkirk Hotspur looked destined to share the spoils until young superstar Luke Mitchell popped up in the 85th minute with an exquisite chip. “The manager told us to sit back, but I was having none of it. I’m a better player than Stewart Stanfield ever was,” Mitchell bragged. Mitchell’s relationship with his manager looks like a headline maker for the rest of the season.

OFLM division 3 Round-up
Division 3 Week 4 preview.
Daniel Perry has been parachuted into crisis club Kincardine Loyal in a bid to rescue their season barely three games into the new campaign.

After three straight defeats and no goals scored, the Royal Bank Park club moved quickly to snap up the ex-Deportivo Azrael manager.

Perry is no doubt that he needs to act quickly to bolster a squad rocking from a dismal start to the season.

The manager has already shipped out 26-year-old keeper Lamarr Pidgelly in an attempt to bring in urgent funds while clubs have been made aware that star men Edward Carson and Marc McInally are available for the right price.

It’s a decision that has split opinion among Loyal fans, who are still reeling from the departure of former manager Gary Horne after five years at the helm.

Horne was a controversial figure, who was never afraid to express strong-held opinions even if they didn’t hold sway with the establishment.

Managers were quick to pay tribute to the Scot with Perry leading the way but the Birmingham-based boss will put the niceties to one side when Sporting Aldershot visit this Thursday.

And it won’t be an easy start against a Shots side boosted by a 4-2 victory at former leaders The Toto Project and the news that first choice keeper Aled Carbone’s injury is not as bad as first feared.

Horne’s exit was quickly followed by the dismissal of Aussie Built manager Peter Bryson, who failed to make an impression during his short tenure.

The rock-bottom club have been less successful in recruiting a new manager with caretaker Ron Atkinson again expected to take charge for the relegation six-pointer at Barry Bears FC.

Despite bagging seven goals in their opening three games, the luckless Bears are still without a point but Mike Rees is confident of turning things around.

But the Aussies will hope they can repeat last season’s 4-1 win at The Comfy Den in a double over their rivals before they both earned promotion from Division Four.

Barton Revolution are the only other side yet to take a point and will be underdogs when they host top-of-the-table Villa Stripes this Thursday.

Other games: Aero Galaxy v The Toto Project, Goalpost FC v VS Khorosho, Lewes Fireflies v AC Valladolid, Los Gringos v Auckland United, Seven Sisters FC v Liberty City.

OFLM division 4 Round-up
It's goals galore in division four!
A whopping 46 goals were scored across eight games this week, but the biggest shock was that two of them came from Tolstoy Dynamo's own players.

Tolstoy secured a 2-0 win at Tassie Tigers' Burniebeu Stadium despite the sending off of defensive midfielder Partridge. Tostoy manager Matt Myatt will be hoping his team put together a run of win now that he finally has all of his striking options available again. Chris Pritchard, meanwhile, must be getting frustrated with the sheer inconsistency of his side's performances. Goals from Gulati and Basil secured the win for Tolstoy, however in truth it could have been a lot worse for the Tigers had Tostoy converted more of their 48 shots on goal, something that clearly irked Myatt: "48 attempts on goal, 23 on target... and only 2 goals scored says it all! My strikers had better shape up very soon or we'll be forced to accept Guy Walsh's offer of a zimmer frame wielding striker who scored some goals a few season back."

Eight goals were shared at The Baghdad Bowl, as Athletico scored five to WBA Baracus' three. Luke Richards' side have now gone six games without a win and their season threatens to come well and truly off the rails unless Richards' can find that spark again. Athletico ended a four game run without a win of their own, and Karl Watts was delighted with his team, and will be hoping that his side can regain their momentum and push for a play-off place: “Totally delighted with that result. Had a great start to the season. The boys are turning into men.”

Dragon Revolution continued their run of form with a devastating 8-1 win away at FC Vikings. Kevin Yau's team survived the 61st minute dismissal of defender Danny Deharo, as they prepared for their upcoming cup match against Christchurch TEC. FC Vikings, who will face Tweedside Satans in the cup, are more than capable of scoring goals, but their ability to concede in bucketloads must be causing Steve McQueen sleepless nights. Yau expressed his delight for the supporters after the game: "A good win for the lads and our away supporters they deserved it. Although the league is our priority, we have a tough game in the divisional cup on MONDAY against the Christchurch, it's going to be a chance for some of the youngsters to start shining."

A cracking game at Blackheath saw the two teams share ten goals. Hawker walked away with a 7-3 win, but it wasn't straight forward. Although Hawker took a ninth minute lead through Bellic, young Blackheath striker James Murray struck twice in two minutes to put his side into a shock lead, which was then added to by Craig Robinson. The wheels started to come off for Blackheath however, when Mostyn Walsh pulled one back on 32 minutes. Pat Margetson then equalised for Hawker before they took control with a Trent Benjamin hat-trick and David Lewis goal. Hawker manager Brian Byrne was disappointed at his team's inability to convert more of their shots at goal: “Extra shooting practice for the lads this week. 93 attempts at goal this week and only seven goals, and the week before we had 58 attempts and only scored once!”

At Het Kanaal, Christchurch TEC hammered De Oranje Leger 4-0, with goals from captain Dichio, loan stars Foley and Harries, and veteran fan favourite Geraint Ametola. Giorgio Hayes received his marching orders for the second time this season in the 64th minute, but De Oranje Leger could not muster up any reply to Christchurch's four goals.

Radford Love Rockets secured their first win of the season, Ronald Nestor netting from the spot after only three minutes. Joe English will not just be happy with his team's first three points of the season, but also the way they controlled the game. With 61% of the possession and 20 shots on goal, with a bit more efficiency in front of goal Radford could have been home and dry a lot earlier. As it happened, they played out the game at 1-0. Deportivo Azrael continue to flounder and Neil Kirby must surely be considering further moves into the transfer market to try to arrest his side's slide down the table. English was a happy man after the game “We have played hard for the past two weeks and its nice to be rewarded with three vital points. This is the start of good things for Radford.”

In the division's first televised clash of the season, table-toppers Thames Water Works defeated Ity Bity Allstars 2-1. Ity Bity manager Rob Newman was disappointed to lose the game and afterwards suggested that a draw would have been a fair result. The question remains though- who will stop the Thames Water Works juggernaut? Next up- away at Hawker.

Finally, Tweedside sent a message that they would still like a say in the promotion race by defeating Saxon Star 8-1. A hat-trick from youngster Des Sands was complemented by a brace from Scott Patridge and goals from Chris Morris, Joel Wynne and Chris Lama. Carl Downing scored a 92nd minute consolation goals for Saxon after Tweedside's David David had been sent off in the three minutes from time.
