Who will start at right back?

(Correction-In our previous article, we reported that Alan was nicknamed the 'Rock', we apologise for the error as our retrenched correspondent wasn't thinking with his proper head at the time of writing. Alan, is instead, nicknamed 'The Wall').

The competition for the coveted right back position heats up! With an impressive showing last Saturday, Alan 'The Wall' looks to have cemented his place in the starting line up. 'The Wall' who played a major part in the first goal, looks a likely bet to start this Sunday's game ahead of fit again 'Ace' Chng.

Observers are also saying that perhaps the left back position occupied by 'Stone Cold' Den is under threat after SFC striker 'ROD!' looked like he was a natural defender in that slot last Saturday.

In other non related news, the doping problems in the major professional leagues worldwide have finally hit the local neighbourhood scene.

SFC players are under probe by the authorities after several players were tested positive for drug abuse. The PPD carried out several tests at Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital and has revealed that the majority of SFC players has tested positive for nicotine abuse, with one particular player testing positive for both nicotine and alcohol abuse.

SFC spokesman Lester, has come out in defence of his players saying that nicotine helps spur and rejuvenate the players in the fast and furious game.

While alcohol helps calm the nerves in the tension filled situations that SFC players often find themselves in. Quoted as saying, 'Just look at our team record, we have not had a yellow card for many games now, and everytime we provoke the opponents its always them that gets in trouble. So the club has decided not to penalise players for their alternative habits.'

SaintsFC shares took a beating at the start of the bell. Diving to as low as 0.10 IDR at mid day, the shares then recovered some lost ground to close Monday's session at 0.90 IDR. Retrenched dealers speculated the rise near the end of trading to be caused by the club buying back their shares in exchange for toilet paper, said to be worth 50% more in these recessionary times.
