Well last night saw Nazim and myself go head-to-head for the 3rd time. And I finally won my first game (thank F&^k !!). Still got wooped in the other 'however many tho.' <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Still getting used to International Skill level and therefore the loss of my fav. player R.Shaw. There doesn't seem to be an equivilent in that side (anyone know a good replacement).

I have also changed tactics to suit my style of play. My biggest problem playing Naz tho. is possesion or rather lack of it, that is the key difference. Let's face it you can't score without the ball <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Last night I went to Alkis' place for a couple of games. It was the first time I would ever play away from home! Well we played for a couple of hours, 5x2 duration games and the results were very good for me. I lost 3 games ,there was 1 tie and I won 8. I didn't expect to play so good, but, I realised that all I needed was some practice.

Yes I can tell that he was kinda depressed last night after those defeats. I bet that this will make him more cautious in the tournament. Right now, I'm over the moon because I know I can do it! All I needed was some practice!

Indeed Vasilis I would agree: theres nothing like a good wooping and a few images of the wooden spoon to bring you down to Earth and make you play better.
Jim beat me yesterday (just..) and I think it helps you analyse your play better.
When you are losing you can see why you are loosing, where your opponent is beating you on the field and what you can attempt to rectify it.
The problems come when you try to rectify it and you can't. Then you know you are playing one of the Leeds Uniteds of the world.
Can't wait for the tourney!

Detecting the disadvantages of your game is very important. While I was practicing I tried to simulate Alkis' technique and I found the vulnerable points. That's how I beat him. A unique technique, good morale and stability is everything you need to master the game.

WTF?????Vasilis, either you made an honest mistake, or your memory is playing tricks on you! What you mean is you won 3 games, one draw, and lost 8! Jeez! You won the first one by 2-1, then another one later by 5-1 (quite impressive, I must say), then I said "that's it, you are not getting any more victories", then a draw and another victory for you, and that was it. You lost all the other ones!
I've never lost 8 games in one day in my entire life!

Hmmm...those defeats must have been a real nervous breakdown to you Alkis...relax. Losing sometimes is not a bad thing. Try to keep your mind together. There's a tourney coming on.
PS. You're too young to forget these recent events...and I don't realy want to think that you're losing it mate!

Oh man, if you don't admit you did a mistake in that post above I'll..I'll..I'll torture you in your sleep in Dartford!
Anyway, I went at Vasilis' place tonight and I managed 7 victories in 12 games (1 draw). He's getting better every day, I'm glad the Greek team will be strong in Dartford, even without George.
