You Can't Please Everyone So You've Gotta Please Yourself

As usual, we lost again. To the league leaders Barclays. 1-6 was the score. But we had 10 players all ready to play today and the problem, for the first time, was allocating enough playing time for everyone. In a 5-a-side futsal game that lasts only 40 minutes and 1 slot being taken by the goalkeeper, there're only 40 miserable minutes to keep 9 other players happy. Haiz.

Really not sure if we should even contemplate staying on in the league next season. We'd have been relegated by now if there were a 2nd tier. How difficult, the conflict between trying to win games and to give everyone ample playing time.

On a sadder note, I've had to let someone go today from my team and it is not a good feeling at all. Not especially when we've been together since we joined the company. It sure sounds harsh, but some things have to be done out of obvious necessity and corporate survival and so we must yield.

I will miss you. And I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

Catch up soon.
