I am delighted to confirm that TFK Astro Football Athletic Club are in formal negotiations with Monkey Allen. We have presented a serious, firm and electronic offer to the player and Mr Allen will be travelling to the club this evening to finalise talks. If negotiations conclude successfully then Mr Allen will be available to play in tonight’s league encounter against WTS FC.
A glorious debut for Monkey Allen with 1 goal and 2 assists.
You could see the mutual respect between Monkey and I after his goal when my deliciously flighted pass allowed him to wriggle past the final defender and fire home emphatically.
That was the goal for 2-0. Rocko had opened the scoring, slotting past the 'keeper after a Monkey-Rocko-Monkey-Rocko double give and go and a Monkey through ball set up cesc4 to slot home the third. We went in at half time 4-0 up after a deft cesc4 flick skillfully diverted a long range effort from Gar in off the post.
We conceded a consolation in the second half but it was a very satisfactory evening indeed.
A magnificent night for the onliners. I think Monkey had a slow start, taking a few moments to take in the size of the crowd and the huge importance of tonight’s fixture but a few early touches settled him down and he contributed handsomely.
I was particularly encouraged by the understanding between the two veterans for the first goal.
Of course I was nervous at the start. You grow up reading about these players and all they have acheived and then find yourself sitting in the dressing room with them as team mates. It was a bit unsettling.
