LFC div5 v Handels

Stora Essinge IP, 16.00 kick off.
Sunday 6th October 2014.

Striped Champions.


The day started off in sublime fashion. Around fifteen of us were enjoying our beers in our pre match pub and sitting in our normal place on the balcony when 3 double decker buses full of Malmö hooligans parked up outside. Our friends from the South, looking like extras from a Football Factory type film but sponsored by a Swedish clothing company, were bemused to find we were in fact not the "firm" of opponents AIK (who they were playing the same day) but the 3.5 army of the mighty Långholmen FC. It took the police more than half an hour to sort things out and off they popped.
We got to the ground just as the match kicked off and joined up with the others on the terracing. This was the biggest home crowd for a good few years and the team did not let them down.
A double by Chris Allen (and what a strike it was) and a Niclas Dymling effort saw off the Handels side, who were also chasing the league title. We even missed a first half penalty which would have put us in a comfort zone at the break.
Fair play to the guests, they battled hard to try and get something from the game but on the day just couldn't pull it off.
When the final whistle went the players and fans celebrated together and enjoyed a beer or two in our "clubhouse" at the Southside Pub.
It was nice to see so many former players at the match, men who have built the club to what it is. It was great to see new fans enjoying the banter from the diehards and to be applauded by the away supporters.

Lastly a word or two goes out to Robbie Graham and his band of merry men. The long serving Irishman has put together a fine bunch of lads in a squad that oozes togetherness. No bickering or heads going down when things go against them, instead heads up and at them.
I can speak on behalf of the regular fans that it has been a pleasure to watch the team grow this season and play some fantastic football. Well done.

Congratulations also to hard working chairman Anna Rutgersson, who in her first season has seen her side win a title. Sterling work.
Season 2015 cannot come quick enough.
We have a cup game before the winter break, nice.

COYS.

Lokomotiv Blackeberg (0) 0
Långholmen FC (4) 6


Monday 1st September 2014. 20.00


Crowd:
Only Långholmen

Hot dog watch: None

Man of Match: Andrew O'Sullivan.


A flawless display saw Långholmen move back to the top of the league last night and again 1 point clear of rivals Boo.
Right from the start it was evident that Långholmen were in no way whatsoever here to mess around. A few changes to last weeks squad saw former AIK Solna and Djurgården player Pierre Gallo pull on a Långholmen shirt for the first time. The number 5 made a second half appearance and right from the start you could see that he will be a valuable addition to Robbie Grahams side in the the run in.
Former professionals aside, the real hero of this match was workhorse Andrew O'Sullivan, the mild mannered Englishman scoring no less than four times. Chris Allen and Manfred Magnusson also put in fine performances up front and all three linked up well in this demolition display.
Goal number one came on 12 minutes after some very neat play. The first half attacks came at regular intervals much to the joy of the vocal away support or much to the joy of the only support, the fact that no hot dogs or refreshments were available on the night may have detered the home sides fans.
O'Sullivan was at it again on 29 mins when he latched onto a ball won in midfield, he made his way with great haste towards goal and cleverly lobbed the keeper from far out, the ball hit the woodwork and the same player followed in to knock home the rebound.
Chris Allen, who was the main instigator behind most of what the Stripes created, waltzed down the right flank before executing a fantastic pass to Manny Magnusson at the back post. Game over, but not the scoring.
4-0 came just on the stroke of half-time and the man of the night was on hand again to claim his hat-trick.

The second half was not quite as frantic but Långholmen created enough chances to get at least another three goals, the upright and a couple of fine saves by the keeper denying them.
Goals five and six came courtesy of O'Sullivan and a penalty by Tom van Steen.
This ranks as one of the finest performances I have seen by any Långholmen in recent times. They now focus on the coming matches and that starts against Atletico Nacka at home on Saturday. Långholmen lost 2-1 earlier in the season against Atletico so will be taking nothing for granted, despite Nackas low position in the table.
A good few Stripes fans will be kicking themselves that they missed last nights match. Hopefully they will take the opportunity on Saturday at Essinge IP and witness another fine performance.

Another R2 win. 3 -1 away to Norrtull
Sun May 25, 2014

Perfect weather conditions. 15 motivated lads.
First goal after 7 mns. Nice header from Bart after corner kick from Daniel.
Then Roberto on a direct corner...and again Bart shortly before the break after a superb long ball from Ken. 3-0 at half time.
Second half a bit more laborious. Other team pushing hard from all sides. Good fight from the lads. A bit of luck. Nice saves from Matt to reassure every one. They managed to get one in.
R2 probably second of its group tonight. Let's see what the others have done.
Another two game to go until the summer break.
If two wins I offer champagne to the lads......
Played tonight: Matt Ken Gaetan Wouter Max Daniel Dan Roberto Bart Guilhem Jamie Tarik Sean Damien Tom

R2 win 5-3
18th May 2014

We played Stuvsta IF yesterday. Before the game Stuvsta was on top of the league with 27 goals scored in 3 games! No need to explain to the lads that the game will be tough against a young opposition and on a warm Sunday afternoon.
First half: we started well, the game was quite equal before ten "crazy" minutes. Stuvsta scored the first goal but we equalized after the kick off! They Scored a second goal and we equalized after the kick off again! We had a couple of other chances before the break but 2-2 at half time.
Second half: we kept playing a nice football and we deserved to take the lead, 3-2. We scored another one 4-2. As expected they tried to come back by attacking more and more, 4-3. But we secured the win with a goal in the last minutes.
Goals: Ali, Bart, Guillaume, Daniel*2
Congratulations to all the lads!
Bad news of the day: Ali (who has already scored 6 goals in the league) fell and landed awkwardly on his arm at the beginning of the second half. He spent 11hours at Södersjukhuset. The verdict is a dislocated elbow so unfortunately it looks like he will be out for a while. Get well soon Ali, we need you.
Thanks to Anton for helping us.
Our squad: Anton, Ken, Sam, Bart, Wouter, Guillaume, Sean, Dan, Roberto, Daniel, Guilhem, Jamie, Ali, Damien, Gaëtan, Julian.

K1 vs Korpen champions
17th may 2014

The sun down at Västberga hosted a classic today. K1 played Örnsbronx, last year's korpen champions and a side that turned us over 5-1 in pre-season.
The first half was a pretty even affair. We had a few attacks where we had men over that weren't used. They forced Fabian into a few smart saves. The referee was overly reluctant to use his whistle - trying to play the advantage at all times . Not sure what advantage is gained defending in your own box! Half-time, 0-0
We flew out of the blocks in the second half and Peter had two glorious chances - one an open goal - but couldn't find the finish to some great moves. We had all the ball but then the sucker punch of an offside goal for Örnsbronx to open the scoring. We pressed on and Antonio was called offside from a corner before the referee changed his mind! The chance was gone. They then had another offside chance saved before slide tackling our keeper, Fabian, in the back to score the rebound.
Straight from kick-off, Luis chipped the keeper from the half Way line only for the referee to disallow it for dissent! Not content with missing the offside and foul, he then punished us again for a "nice job" comment.
With 5 minutes to go, we conceded a justified penalty. 5 to go, 2 down, penalty down to the champions. Not the best situation to find yourself in.
Fabian threw himself to the right and pulled off a brilliant save to deny Örsnbronx a third from the penalty spot. We threw caution to the wind, put on another forward and went all out on attack. Orkhan got the break of the ball (a suspicion of handball claim the opposition) and slotted past the keeper. 2-1, with only a minute to go. I had a header that flashed past the post - it looked like that was it. We won the ball back straight from the goal kick and Alan was found in space, who ignored my screams for a through ball, to curl in the equaliser from 20 yards ! That was the last kick of the game!

A great game. Still undefeated!

R1 win 4-0 vs. Sickla (away)
18th may 2014

The positivity from last week continued with another 3 points for the stripes today.
Sickla, who started the game top of the league, were a solid and well organised team. The first half was a bit of a stalemate (even though Sickla missed a penalty after a soft decision) and 0-0 was a fair score at the break.
In the 2nd half the stripes turned on the "sexy football" ;-) and passed the tiring Sickla off the park. Lots of nice passing moves created a mass of chances in which we finished 4 within a 25 minute spell.
A lot do credit must go to all the lads today. All the new faces are starting to gel and are now beginning to settle. The Div5/R1 squad is looking very competitive this year and this can only bode well for the future!
Squad: Giles, Fredrik, Micha, Adrien, Andreas C , Ole, Florian, Markus, Tom, Jordi, Phil C, Bruno, Remi

Vets beat Munsö/Adelsö 3-1
May 18th 2014

After a long sturdy drive out to the middle of nowhere Stripes faced old nemesis Munsö.
Before the game some of the guys were chuffed to get a game on grass. After seeing the pitch, not so chuffed.
Not being used to the pitch shined thru, especially in the first half were we struggled and were forced to play the greater part of it in our own half. Saying this Munsö had difficulty finding chances. Stripes got ball thru to Jagger 10 minutes from half time, he ran himself clear and from what seemed to be the edge of the box shot a stunning shot towards the top corner 1-0 vets!!!
Second half Munsö mustered up some chances and a failed cross went over the Vets keeper to hit the post and unluckily bounce out to Munsö players to make the score 1-1. Just like last week The Stripes wanted more! Jagger got his foot to a cross to get his second for the afternoon. More long balls rained towards the LFC defence, but they were denied by determined Stripes. In the last minutes Tobbe could steal a third goal for the vets on a rebound after hard work from Kristoffer.
All in all it wasn't pretty to watch today, but the work rate and determination is something we will take with us to the next game. To bare in mind is that VETS still haven't had a proper goalkepeer yet.
STILL undefeated!!! Onwards and upwards!

From the LFCSC post
Div5 match v Atletico
Friday 9th May 2014
Away to Nacka is always an adventure as we took the picturesque Saltsjöbanan train. The weather gods were not on our side again and provided a cold night with occasional drizzle.
We wind the clock back to 18:14 and the meet up with fellow 3,5 member Radu Pipas. The feisty Rumanian was in good form and insisted that we try some form of tractor diesel type spirit from the homeland, we made the train out to Nacka by 11 seconds. Atletico had not one single fan at the game, which was nice, so we took over their VIP box and enjoyed the view. We were few but made some noise anyway, Radu makes enough sound for 700 fans.
Atletico took the lead with their very first attempt on goal in 7 minutes, a corner was badly dealt with and the ball was fired in from 15 yards. Långholmen created a handfull of good chances in the first half but were denied by both by the post and bar. Atletico also saw an effort canon off the upright just before the break. Atletico were much more composed in the second half but never really threatened until the 64th minute when a long range effort managed to find it's way into goal. 2-0 and things looked bleak, but the visitors never gave up and pulled one back when Stuart Lascelles scored with a looping header.
I will also add the referee turned down a stonewall penalty for the Stripes...bastard
Atletico move up the table, Långholmen could surrender their top berth later on Saturday. We move onto the next game against Lokomotiv Blackeberg on Essinge next Sunday. Let's get down to The Rock and cheer the boys on. So far our support has been very poor despite the team performing well.
COYS..cheers Scottie (LFCSC)
Captain Chris Allens family made the trip over for this game

K1 win 1-0 and top of korpen
Sunday May 11
We were up against Los Legendarios in Rinkeby, a side that best us 3-1 and 4-1 last year. A fairly even first half with not much for either keeper to do. In the second half they ramped up the pressure that saw us camped in our own half for lengthy periods. Fabian pulled off a wonder save to tip onto the bar a deflected shot that was destined for the top corner. Restricted to counter attacks we looked dangerous without really troubling the keeper.

Then a moment of class. A lovely cross field pass from Orkhan found Luis, who took one touch before curling in a 25 yard shot into the top corner. The pressed more and more and Fabian pushed two more shots onto the bar and saved the rebounds with the goal gaping. Amir got his marching orders after a professional foul but we clung on for a hard fought victory.

R1 win 4-1 against Norrtulls (H)

Sunday 11th May, 2014

R1 were back to full strength today and ran riot against a good young Norrtulls side.
With a balanced squad we controlled the game from start to finish and went into the break 1-0 up following a great set piece and header. 2nd half was more of the same as we managed to score another 3 following some excellent team play and emphatic finishing.
Goalkeeper and defence were very solid today and nullified any attacks that came their way. Norrtulls were given a fortunate penalty near the end to make it 4–1 to the blu.......stripes.
Really positive attitude and great team spirit today. It was a pleasure to be part of it.

Squad: Giles, Tim, Markus, Adrian (Brian), Florian, Tom, Fedja, Jordi, Ole (c), Christopher (Andreas), Phil (Patrik)

K1 draw 3-3

Sunday 4th May, 2014.
We were up against last year's third place side Not United down at Lisebergs IP in the sun and snow. We played well in the first half and took the lead through Bart - and prevented them from having even a single shot on goal. They came out strongly in the second half and equalised after a lot of pressure. We came close a few times before Dan put us back in the lead. Then, after booking Jae for preventing a quick free-kick, a few mins later the ref signalled for a goal, then disallowed it after Luis' quick free kick was headed in by Dan.
Instead of 3-1 to us, a goal-line scramble and a diving header looked like giving Not United a last gasp victory as they went 3-2 up with only seconds remaining. We won a corner in the last minute and with almost the last touch of the game Ion swooped to make it 3-3 and a deserved point for LFC.
That leaves us in 2nd position in "Korpen Elit" and more importantly preserves my Mourinho-esque unbeaten record!

R1 lose 3-1 vs. Ingarö
26th April, 2014.
Good team effort today from the lads. We had a lot of regulars missing and we appreciate all the guys that stepped in on what was a very hot day against a good young side.
We found ourselves 2-0 down after 25 minutes due to two wonder goals from outside the box. We managed to get a goal back from the penalty spot before half time to set up a great 2nd half.
It was all Långholmen in the 2nd half but we just couldnt make the posession count or finish that final ball. We got sucker punched with a 3rd with the last kick of the game after commiting more men forward.
We learn from today and move on to the next!
Squad: Matt, Adam, Fredrik, Brian, Florian, Olle (c), Jordi, Robbie, Tom, Andreas, Phil C, Erik B, Jae, Stew P, Anton

Ladies 0 V 4 Österåker FK
3rd May 2014.
This was a bruising encounter against an unrelentingly physical side.I would describe the oppositions style of play as crude including, even, their set pieces.They scored from two ´kick and rush` free kicks and there is probably a school of thought who argue that well-drilled robotics is the future of football.Not me, however.
Three-nil down at half-time we decided to throw caution to the wind and take our chances in an all-out offensive.Our pressure was relentless but ultimately frustrating.
A special mention to both our full-backs (Sara J. and Anna G.) who started the match having never ever played in that position before and acquitted themselves well and with aplomb.We even blooded another (Wenche) towards the end.
A big positive to take from this game is that we didn`t ´fold` despite ample provocation.Instead, we continued to tough it out and even dominated the last twenty minutes.I also admired the way in which there is a growing ease and maturity with which we change formation.Something unthinkable even a short while ago.
All in all, our players were knocked about a bit but in no way shaken.We continue to take lessons in this division but are in no way overawed.

R1 draw 2-2 vs. Örby (away)

Saturday May 3rd 2014
First point of the season for R1 this season with a plucky 2-2 draw away at Örby. With another new starting 11 we started slow but following some excellent goalkeeping and defending we scored to make it 1-0 at half time.
Örby continued to dominate the possession in the 2nd half but they failed to capitalise as we managed to score on the counter attack to make it 2-0.
We continued to be careless in possession and Örby managed to score 2 goals in the last 10mimutes to send us home with only a point.
Overall, it was not a pretty display from the stripes however a good first point for the team and some positive individual performances. We learn and move forward....
Squad: Giles, Adam, Markus, Fredrik, Sam (Anton), Remi, Pontus, Daniel (Jae), Olle, Andreas W, Patrik (Phil C)

R2: 2-2

25th April 2014
One of those great football moments for R2 yesterday night.
0-2 down with less than 3 mns to go. Dan to score 1st goal after a corner kick. Ball quickly put back in play. Long ball by Guillaume Masse on right wing across the halfway line, header by Ken Burman over the defense line to Alastair Donachie for one of those elegant lob over the goalkeeper.
Final score 2-2
Superb spirit from the guys and fighting till the end having played some nice football for most of the game without being able to score earlier in the game. Some top class saves by Matt again int he game. IFK Lindingö played some really good football, lots of movements from their young and talented players. They could not do anything against the LFC fighting spirit. An enjoyable football evening.

Div5: LFC v Reymersholms  4-2

Monday April 21st 2014,  
Crowd 63
The pre match warm up at the Chinese on Essinge saw a smaller turn out than usual. A few notable faces were absent due to the combination of Easter and English and Swedish matches being played today. The owner of said restaurant impressed by saying " ah Långholmen match today, you have scarf to me ". Dave Abergel, a new follower of The Stripes turned up for his first match with his girlfriend/wife Jen and bolstered the numbers.
17 minutes into the match and Långholmen seemed to be on easy street against a young Reymers side, Chrissy Allen and Fedja Ziga scoring after some neat football.
Reymers pulled one back after an unfortunate error in midfield, but Chris Allen once again restored the two goal buffer directly after.
Half -time 3-1
A much improved Reymers started the better of the two in the opening exchanges in the second 45, but a spot kick by Erik Bohman made it 4-2.
New signing in goal Matt Squire looked solid and had a couple of fine stops to ensure the score remained as it did at the end.
A long way to go in this campaign but this far in Långholmen are looking much improved, a side that enjoy their football and it shows.
Hopefully those missing fans can make their way back to the sidelines and cheer the lads on this season, the football is good, the banter is good and it is free.
Next game is at Stadshagen on Friday 25th April against Norrtull. Kick-off is at 20.00. Pre-match beer venue will be announced later in the week.
