Friendly vs 2 Poplars

Manics began their rehabilitation with a friendly against new Division 4 side, Two Poplars. Shirt clash meant the visiting side had to turn their jerseys inside out. And it wasn't too long before the Manics were turning them inside out with their slick passing moves, especially through the exciting wing play from weak drinker Gevans and yard legend Bakes.

2 Popular Manics

Manics' returning defender Simon Blay marked his comeback with a sensational goal after about 10 minutes. A corner somehow eluded the Manics in the box, but sprang clear to the dangerous Warman, who lofted a lovely right foot cross to the back post where Blay dived to head the ball into the top corner.

Blay wasn't the only Manic returning to the fold today. Legendary striker Robbo came back to pull the strings in the attacking end of the field. These two old faces were welcomed back and helped the Manics achieve a 2nd and 3rd in the first half. Gevans and Baker notched them superbly; both goals absolute screamers.

Not too popular

And it could have been more at half time, but the linesman was proving to be none too poplar for the Manics as he flagged a Robbo and a Gevans effort offside. At times in the first half the football was superb, and deserved more goals. Chef and CJ complimented each other perfectly in a midfield dominated by the Manics 4.

However, there was injury strife for the Manics. Chef and Marcel both withdrew either side of half-time with knee and back injuries, as Robbo and Blay looked leggy with a lack of match practice between them.

Two Pups

So it was unsurprising that despite 2 early goals in the 2nd half, the Manics faded and lacked focus. The Manics love boobs. 2 Pops, who never gave up and should be OK in their first season in the league, came close two or three times in the second half, warning signs that need to be heeded when they return to Premier League action next week v Green Man..
