clean sheets

Even though this isn't about bedsheets, I will still be able to sleep well tonight.

Singapore took three points in a 3-0 win against Myanmar to open their Suzuki Cup campaign in style, thanks to a Safuwan Baharudin header and a brace from Ikhsan Fandi. I didn't watch that game, but I'm glad we didn't concede a goal this time. Worryingly, Thailand also kept their defensive record clean in a 2-0 defeat of Timor Leste. We next face Philippines on the 8th.

My favourite English club, Manchester United, continued their decent run of late, with Fred's goal nicking them a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace. The opening half hour saw the Red Devils dominate the game against their compact visitors, but somehow none of the chances created crossed the line. Finally, on 77 minutes, Mason Greenwood laid off the ball to a prowling Fred, who placed the ball out of Guaita's reach. Things are looking slightly brighter for United, but I'm still only cautiously optimistic.

My adopted home team, VfL Osnabrück, also kept a clean sheet against TSV Havelse 1912. However, the home fans among the 6,098 in attendance must have left Bremer Brücke mildly disappointed with the 0-0 draw. A win would have seen them jump to 3rd in the German 3rd division, from 7th. Their next assignment is away to league leaders Magdeburg, which will be quite the challenge, to say the least.

3-0, 2-0, 1-0, 0-0. Long may the sheets stay clean...
