New Signing To Beef Up AFL Squad
In a mad scramble to meet yesterdays midnight transfer deadline of the AFL, The Gaffer has managed to secure the services of Isnan from MMFC (Merepek Meraban Football Club). Isnan who is highly rated by TLFC scouts was reportedly happy to put pen to paper on a TLFC contract. He said in his media unveiling today, " It has been a childhood dream of mine to don the whites of TLFC. I grew up watching TLFC play and to be able to be a part of them is like a dream come true". Isnan is set to make his debut this Sunday against Campaign Football Club at Canberra Secondary. The staff here at TL Times wish him all the best.
On to other news, TLFC have been facing an injury crisis of sorts. With 5 players out injured, last Sunday saw only 12 players turn up for the AFL game. The lack of foresight from the Gaffer is appalling considering he is an experienced coach. Earlier in the season, when questioned about the small squad size by reporters, The Gaffer replied that he believes that 16 people will be sufficient to mount a serious title challenge. The lack of depth in the squad become apparent last Sunday when TLFC were hammered 5-1 by league leaders Kampong Boyz. Hours after the game, the Gaffers villa in Jamaica was reportedly attacked by die-hard TLFC Jamaican fans. They were reportedly unhappy with the Gaffer managerial ineptitude to foresee problems and lack of tactical knowledge. If the Gaffer can take full credit for his win against Kawabanga then he should take full responsibility for this embarrassing result. -Fox
