Well, out of the misty jungles of Indochina emerges the one and only Kiss of Death. Conveniently just minutes after I put up my Missing In Action/Chuck Norris appreciation post, which somehow was nearly three years in the making. I know, I know; I, too, thought a Chuck Norris reference would have have made it on here sooner.
If you followed my tips last week, you would’ve done well; 5/6, in a topsy turvy round. My sources tell me that Sunshine George Cross was paying a bundle to beat Oakleigh, and Kiss Of Death predicted it here first! The upset of the season.
Oakleigh Cannons vs South Melbourne
Oakleigh lost 2-1 last weekend to lowly George Cross. South Melbourne drew 2-2 to high flying Richmond. For starters, I don’t think the game will go ahead. The ground will be in atrocious condition and player safety will be the referee's priority. In the event it does go ahead the result will be Oakleigh Cannons 0 – South Melbourne 2.
Dandenong Thunder vs Sunshine Georgies
Sunshine are climbing out of the bottom after last weeks shock win to Oakleigh. They will continue their climb out of relegation with another shock win over Dandenong on Saturday night. Dandenong Thunder 1 – Sunshine Georgies 3.
Hume City vs Bentleigh Greens
The nail in the coffin for a very very poor , yet expected Bentleigh. Bentleigh will get relegated people. No, they will not win the league this year, no, they will not make the finals, and no, they will not bounce back next year. The downward spiral has begun for that club. All the money in the world can not save them now. Lucky for them they at least have a money making facility. Hume City 6 – Bentleigh Greens 0.
Melbourne Knights vs Northcote City
Northcote to capitulate at Somers St to a very organised and fan driven Melbourne Knights. The Knights need this win to ensure their survival……from the fans! Northcote has too much on its plate at the moment. Two games in hand, a tribunal hearing still to come, and all the pressure of finals football on their heads. Melbourne Knights 2 – Northcote City 1.
Richmond vs Altona Magic
Richmond will be just toooooo good for a demoralised BAPDAP. Altona will be torn to shreds. It will be a very open game played mostly in BAPDAP’s defensive half. Richmond 4 – Altona Magic 0.
Heidelberg United vs Green Gully
The nobles from Green aya Gully ha ah!, will absolutely batter the burgers. The violent surroundings of the Olympic Village will not strike fear into the seven travelling Gully fans. They will avoid Headlock Hill, sip their homemade tea and coffee, and share biscuits among themselves as they sit back and enjoy the action.
Burgers 0 – Green Gully 2.
