Allan (Memphis) - Saturday 12-17-05 18:03
Some might call this posting gamesmanship. Others would say it has no place on the Notebook. Criticism aside...submitted for your approval...the match report from last season's titanic MP-BOA clash (note the tactic from the host team listed at the end of the report). This was my all-time favorite Memphis game...

Mike (Motor City) - Wednesday 12-21-05 20:46
I'm gonna call this one a 2-1 BOA win.
Both teams look a little beat up coming in. BOA has the GK advantage, but the rest of their ranks look a little thin in the EL department. Both defenses and midfields are seriously tired and limp into this one, but BOA's forwards are looking a little stronger. MP is showing some wear coming into this one and are ripe for a fall.
This one could go a draw, but I predict BOA getting a late goal. This one is definitely going to test the mangerial abilities of both coaches.
