Blancos boys make their point

Tim Heynes and Svi Freedman guided Los Blancos to an entertaining draw against Redbridge.

    The watching fans were left bewildered, murmurs were heard stating ‘what can Jake Doffman not do?’ as the newly-titled Jewish ‘tinkerman' earned Blancos a deserved point in their fight for third place.

    Saturday evening's antics clearly showed in the fifth minute where the Blancos team switched off to let a simple ball down the right channel for Redbridge to cross and score a ‘sweaty’ Fifa goal.

    A contentious decision denied Blancos an equaliser before half-time when Krieger’s shot from a Davies corner ended up in Hawk-eye territory.

    Jake Doffman currently injured, (although back in training doing light ball-work) was in attendance and assumed managerial responsibilities as Blancos have handed in a formal missing persons request to the Metropolitan Police for the whereabouts of Joel Holder.

    The second half whistled by and on 70 minutes Doffman thought of the unthinkable tinkering the formation and moving Krieger into the lone striker role. This completely rattled the Redbridge back line who looked like rabbits caught in headlights whilst Krieger won every flick-on and brought Blancos up the field of play.

    On 75 minutes, a Lewis throw was flicked on by the dominant Krieger to Heynes at the back post who swiveled and pumped the ball home on the half volley.

    Blancos pushed on for the winner and Yoel Deal lashed wide by a yard. Redbridge counter-attacked the space afforded by the Blancos press and nicked what they thought to be the winner.

    However, additional time of five minutes left Blancos with plenty of time to get their deserved point. They did just that, clever link-up play between Lewis and Krieger found Svi Freedman an extra yard of space outside the box who rifled home into the top corner from 25 yards resulting in honors even in Borehamwood.

    The look of despair was clear to see on the Redbridge backline, Daniel Lassman echoed the frown seen when Lord Sugar wagged his finger and fired Lassman from the nations BBC screens!

    Blancos will feel like they have won this game and the momentum is welcomed by the backroom staff who were left disappointed by Phil Peters decision-making which denied all three points.
