RMcP: Transfer Window Riffing

Hello again! Fresh from recovering from the shocking events of Euro 2016 (the details of which I can no longer remember) your faithful dilettante pundit is on the prowl once more: staring down the giants of the EPL, dissecting their every move and waiting, just waiting, for Jack Wilshire to do something stupid again. Bring it ... More

Second half comeback ensures RMIT stay top of the table

After a week off for the Bye round, RMIT needed a win to ensure they stayed top of the league. The last time these two sides met RMIT defeated Meadow Park SC 4-0. However, RMIT go into this match with a much different squad as the injury crisis continues. It was a very poor start by the Redbacks, a Meadow Park corner was ... More

RMIT come out on top as tempers flare

RMIT came into the match looking to bounce back from the first defeat of the season at the hands of Keon Park SC in the previous round. Their opponents today were the Moreland Eagles SC, their previous meeting finishing 4-1 to RMIT in what was a heated occasion. It was an uneventful start to the match with neither team able ... More

RMIT succumb to their first defeat of the season

RMIT lined up to face bottom of the table Keon Park with an ever growing list of injuries and absentees. Five changes to the line-up as Paul Kozinski and Santiago Yeppes Gallo were handed their first team debut after impressive performances in the Reserves league. The game started with Keon keeping possession but it was RMIT ... More

RMcP: Paul Pogba, Wayne Rooney and the tactically undermined footballer.

The Euros. In the last four iterations of the tournament massively under-rated teams have won twice (not quite as jarring this time around as in 2004 but still a big deal), there can be no doubt that the continental competitions of Europe and the Americas are capable of delivering some really great entertainment. But dumbass ... More

RMcP – Euro Semi-Finals breakdown and Predictions

Possibly our final exclusively Euro 2016-themed article, as I pen – well, type – this we find ourselves with a pair of semi-finals left. Frankly, with any such tournament – a tennis Grand Slam, for another example – I find the dying stages to actually be quite boring, the time between games gets stretched out, the games ... More

Jones hat trick to mark his 50th appearance for the club

Mitchell Rangers made the long journey to the Redback’s Poplar Fortress. Both teams sat at opposite ends of the table but RMIT were wary of the visitors after a hard fought 2-0 win in the return fixture. RMIT looked to make a mark on the game early on but for some lacklustre finishing in front of goals. In the 33rd minute ... More

RMcP: Euro 2016 Refresher

Week 2 of our great correspondence, and I’m sitting here feeling like Seinfeld as I wonder ‘what is with’ international football – it ebbs and flows, form comes and goes, the rain falls on the plain in Spain and what the hell happened to Croatia? If the group stages were a theoretically exciting exercise in hitherto ... More

RMcP – Early Observations and Meditations on the Euros

The Euro 2016 tournament is in full flight now, even if that flight is less than scintillating at times, and what better subject to draw on to kick off this series of weekly football related posts than the subject at hand: Popping balls, and sundry. The following is a collection of random musings: not infallible, but enthusia... More

Late Latcham goal wins the derby

The last time Melbourne Uni SC and RMIT had met it ended in a convincing 3 nil victory for the redbacks. Fast forward to Round 12 and Melbourne Uni had hit a good run of form and occupied third spot only 4 points from 2nd which would secure them automatic promotion. It’s a game that meant a lot for both teams and it played ... More
