With the squad’s great show of form in the first two matches of the season team spirit is running even higher than usual, if that’s even possible. Well, to make matters better GAS was scheduled during the one week break this past weekend, the decision was taken that it would be the perfect occasion for some team bonding, and so it was.
GAS began the game on the front foot and were camped out in the opposition half from the first minute but no breakthrough, until midway through the first half when a marauding run from left winger Julian’s pull back eventually made it over to the right winger John who had time to take a touch and slot it past the keeper for the first goal of the game. The second goal followed shortly after, again coming from a left wing pull back from Julian allowing Tommy Almond to prod the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
The NEW 2017 – 2018 Season Match and Warm-up kits have arrived. Lookout for the Golden Boys on the pitch as GAS will be playing in a unique Under Amour Gold Jersey.
BIG THANKS to our sponsors; Häfele, Steinert and Bangkok Hospital for their continued support!
This Sunday saw Germans All Stars kick off their first league game against Bangkok United.
The first game saw a big squad come together at our home turf at Bangkok Patana school. The coaching team had decided to invite all available players to create good atmosphere.
Our tactics for the game saw us continue with our high midfield pressing from the wingers which has worked very well in pre-season so far.
After roughly 5 minutes played a quick taking throw from Damian saw Tommy with possession inside the box who then laid the ball off to Dominik for the first goal of the season!!!
Saturday 22nd April 2017 will live long in the memory of the GAS faithful. Here is why…
It was cup final day. The Casuals League had pulled out all the stops with getting a fine venue in Siam’s National Stadium, a perfect arena for without doubt the biggest game of the season for both teams. Pre game brunch was had at the Siam@Siam Design Hotel Bangkok next to MBK where the hosts kindly laid on fresh fruit and pasta, drinks and assisted with taking pre-game photographs.
So, here it is, the last game of the season. Swealtering conditions, a less than perfect pitch and a stripped back squad saw GAS take on Flann O Briens formally known as Londoner FC in the final game of the season.
A picture perfect start saw GAS take the lead through what is without question the fastest goal in Bangkok Casuals’ history. Dom playing a ball out wide to Philip who whipped in an audacious cross for Thomas to raise like the horny little salmon he is, notching his first of the game. Great start. The game could’ve easily been 2-3 maybe even 4 goals to the good in the first 15 minutes with GAS looking to end in style. No longer than 10 minutes into the game saw Kalle and Ronny come off injured making an already slim squad, slimmer. Despite going into battle with half an army the second goal finally came when again Philip’s deflected cross landed to Thomas who once again showed the predatory instincts to smash home. Buying balls to play with is not the only he’s good at, evidently. Continue reading
GAS VS Sportsman this past Saturday was the second to last game of the 2016/2017 season. With GAS still chasing the hope of the Division 1 title it was imperative we took 3 points with the hope that Red Star could manage to take points from FC Planet.
The game was a scrappy one. GAS started well and created 1 or 2 chances but couldn’t find the break through. That was until Ronnie a.k.a. Philip Lahm stepped up to take a free kick from 35 yards out, thundering in his attempt into the top corner. Keeper no chance. Despite forgetting his shoes and only realising a week later, he clearly didn’t forget how to strike a dead ball. A good goal from one GAS’ men of the season so far. Continue reading
