EESTI KARIKAS

FIRST ROUND

https://i.imgur.com/yTXUnW4.png?1

Relatively uneventful passage into the second round as our second string comfortably brushed Puuma to the side. Jaanus Martin and Audrius Urbys created quite the partnership with two similarly made goals, just one finished with his feet and one with his head. Urbys completed his hat-trick from the spot and highlighted why he should have been chosen during league registration. The Puuma support had something to cheer late on with Monakov but realistically it was never going to be cup heroics.

Six wins in a row, we're on fire.

SECOND ROUND DRAW

https://i.imgur.com/218vmE2.png?1

Esiliiga side Santos could be more of a test in the next round.

Europe chasing Tammeka were a real test, failing to budge in a nil nil. We had Martin Bastig to thank for keeping it that way though, recording two excellent stops, one of which onto the crossbar to escape with a clean sheet. Despite a late red to Tammeka's Pavel Klein, it didn't do much difference. We'll take it as we weren't to our usual striking best.

MATCHDAY 23

Jagged edged performance again and nearly fell on our own sword to bottom of the table Trans. It is plain as day why they're bottom after a woeful defensive error led Tarvis in for the opening goal on 19 minutes. Despite missing a one on one late in the first half, the relegation threatened side pulled off an equaliser through some poor marking from a corner and leaving Deniss Teever available for a free header. Slightly panicked about dropping huge points, Tarvis came to the rescue in typical poacher fashion to cash in on Flórez's cross to escape with all three points.

Now this was much more like it, an ice cool performance over Flora to go unbeaten in nine. Flora's 5-4-1 nonsense led to all sorts of confusion at the back as we pierced through twice before the half ended. Tarvis latched onto a wonderful through ball by Vazinski and Flórez ended the half with one of his own after Flora failed to clear a free kick. The visitors offered precious little while we looked comfortable and it got even better when Vanna got sent off for a two footed lunge. Huge statement to the leaders Levadia.

https://i.imgur.com/eigXOOQ.png?1

Bad news for Mario Rõivasepp, out for another six weeks and is looking seriously injury prone these days.

It was going to happen eventually. A communication mishap led Bastig and McParland astray to chase the same ball, leaving behind a gaping goal for Männik to apply the finishing touch. We threw everything at Kalju but just didn't have the answers to get something out of the game. Sub Rene Sabanov came closest but missed a one on one to hit it straight at keeper Tukris. Unlucky in defeat, just need to bounce back quickly.

MATCHDAY 26


https://i.imgur.com/dwdjdoD.png?1

Still felt the after effects of the Kalju defeat, ruggedly overcoming Tallinna Kalev in unconvincing style. A penalty miss onto the post by Miroslav Divis marked his return from injury distastefully. It was the most unlikely goalscorer in Milko Filic with a pounding strike that won us the game, his first for the club. TK weren't at the races, Bastig only having to do the routine roundup.

MATCHDAY 27


https://i.imgur.com/lInMdtm.png?1

Result of the season right here, what a massive three points to lift us into title contention! Pulsating opening quarter with Flórez briefly poking us in front before Levadia returned fire with Priit Mutle. Levadia keeper Butkus made a total ass of himself in fumbling a cross at his near post with Tarvis perched like a jaguar, ready to restore our advantage. The second half was all us; Colombian Flórez was a livewire and if it weren't for Butkus' two top drawer saves from him the scoreline would have gotten embarrassing. Levadia, we're coming for you!

https://i.imgur.com/pGKckgf.png?1

He may not always perform, but when he does.

RESULTS OVERVIEW

https://i.imgur.com/tISWzde.png?1

Another rock solid month. In retrospect, if we didn't make that error in the Kalju game it would have Levadia sweating but alas can't fault the sheer effort we've put in. Tarvis now the league's top scorer with 17.

LEAGUE TABLE

https://i.imgur.com/lGOrIWw.png?1

Nine games left, only six points in it. Leapfrogging Paide into second place which wouldn't be a bad finish at all. Seven clear of Tammeka leaves us well in the pursuit of European football this season. A massive month ahead.

SEPTEMBER 2046 SCHEDULE

https://i.imgur.com/Gh7JIGA.png?1

Not as dense as last month in games which helps us recuperate for important games against Paide and Sillamäe Kalev. The rest I'm not overly worried about.

MATCHDAY 28


https://i.imgur.com/gwJ0kqu.png?1

1-0 good enough to take down Pärnu. Jair Flórez picked up where he left off with an early goal, placing it too high for the keeper to reach. The bulk of the action though came in the last five minutes; Tarvis had a stinking 5.7 with a penalty miss off the crossbar while Flórez also rattled the bar seconds later. Pärnu so nearly snatched something late on but Bastig parried a shot at his near post to maintain this result.

EESTI KARIKAS

SECOND ROUND


https://i.imgur.com/ofPFNB5.png?1

Another cup game, another Urbys show. The Lithuanian might very well make a case for next season's registration list after finishing off Santos to advance to the next phase. Quite the strike too, 25 yards and straight into the top corner. That said, he failed to put away a free header from four yards and onto the bar instead but young winger Indrek Orgla quickly dashed over that with a memorable first goal for the main team. Santos fired blanks all game.

THIRD ROUND DRAW

https://i.imgur.com/KOJWbc1.png?1

Another case of déjà vu. Same round, same opponent as last year's competition.

MEISTRILIIGA

MATCHDAY 29


https://i.imgur.com/TWH6Gfg.png?1

For what it's worth, I'll take this result. Preserving second place for now is better than nothing. Conor McParland almost opened his Infonet account but his close range header rebounded off the post. Seriously dull game.
https://i.imgur.com/0cEop9d.png?2http://i.imgur.com/ZiZpv0k.png?1



YOUTH INTAKE

https://i.imgur.com/FBMZ8Df.png?1

Flipping the script to this year's youth intake, while it's not great, it's not poor either. A goalkeeper on the rise could be just what we need.

Sten Põldsaar - GK - youth intake

https://i.imgur.com/rOfX8es.png

Needs a lot of work to be all well rounded as he only has the bread and butter as a keeper so far. 6'1, somewhat athletic, agile with okay reflexes. The aerial reach and command of area is a big drawback but if Bastig can teach him a few tricks, he might be a starter in a few seasons.

MEISTRILIIGA

MATCHDAY 30


https://i.imgur.com/MdiLqUp.png?1

The curse of Sillamäe Kalev seems to have lifted, silencing them without a single shot on target. They went defensive all game, knowing we had to go for it and their plan backfired but only from the penalty spot. Kareel Tarvis composed himself to erase his last penalty blip and sending the keeper the wrong way. The boys in blue were short in confidence just by looking at them, spurning a brilliant one on one as their top scorer Oskars Kurtiss ballooned it over. Another strong defensive performance with three points in the bag.

MATCHDAY 31


https://i.imgur.com/t3bLsEd.png?1

Firmly in control over doomed Trans but only one goal to show for it. Albert Kübar had some luck with a hot shot that was too spicy to handle for their keeper, almost going down as an o.g.. Karl Altosar is really taking his free kick taking practice seriously, only denied by the bar to further our advantage. Slender win again, that's all we can do for now.

RESULTS OVERVIEW

https://i.imgur.com/kM6lbV6.png?1

Five games, five clean sheets. I have to praise our defence here, the addition of McParland has given us a whole new dimension to our backline. Disappointed with midfield and strikers this month, Tarvis in particular coming up short in expectations.

LEAGUE TABLE

https://i.imgur.com/byZwg9p.png?1

Only one point gained on Levadia and we're running out of games. On the plus side, second place is almost entirely ensured. Next month is big.

OCTOBER 2046 SCHEDULE


https://i.imgur.com/KxPwfxc.png?1

Four games, none of which look easy. Tammeka at home in a decider for at bare minimum a top three. Two away days at Flora, one in the league and one in the cup. Last but not least a home game to Kalju, who really haven't given us too many problems this season. Levadia need to slip up at some stage too and we'll have to better them. Fingers crossed.

MATCHDAY 32


https://i.imgur.com/tNieoHA.png?1

Uh oh. Did not play well at all here, helping not only Levadia to stretch their lead after winning but also bridging the gap to second in favour of Tammeka. They had us on a leash and came close twice before limp defending allowed Karl Mutle bury the only goal of the match. Zero goal threats, it was a very forgettable day.

MATCHDAY 33


https://i.imgur.com/bmQd31U.png?1

https://i.imgur.com/xjQUZWH.png?1

Blown it. Despite encouraging signs in the first five minutes, we were nowhere to be seen afterwards. Substitute centre back Gregory Axionov woke up the fans during this garbage game to sneak in behind from a free kick to power a shot in at the far post, leaving us completely befuddled. Such a let down after what was our brightest period of the season.

EESTI KARIKAS

THIRD ROUND


https://i.imgur.com/rpNKKDx.png?1

SOS. It's all going pear shaped, back to back defeats and now dumped out of the Estonian cup too. I will say we played better than the last two games combined, but that was probably when Flora were down to ten men in the second half. The goal was as soft as they come - completely allowing dribbles and passes to go unchallenged to finally fall into Hanson's lap for an easy finish. After the red, chances fell to us. Gave Urbys another crack of the whip who came closest as he walloped the inside post before there was no time left. Three Ls in a row...bad things come in threes as the old adage goes.

MEISTRILIIGA

MATCHDAY 34


https://i.imgur.com/d95ebuQ.png?1

Ended a mini crisis with an improved, resounding performance at home to Kalju. Kareel Tarvis eyeing up the golden ball with his 19th goal of the season to leave him one shy of a score. A former friend came to visit as ex-Stumbras player Adrian Burc─â coolly levelled after some careless midfield dispossession. Our dominance eventually paid off with Conor McParland heading in his first Infonet goal from a corner which halted any sort of response from the visitors.

RESULTS OVERVIEW

https://i.imgur.com/e3XY3G0.png?1

A month I want to put swiftly behind us, such a disappointment that our title ambitions went up in smoke so late in the season. It also bums me out that we're out of the Eesti Karikas at the same stage as last season, but learning curves for next year.

While missing out on top spot hurt us with utmost effort put in, something good did come out of it. EUROPA LEAGUE! Guaranteed second place with two games remaining.

NOVEMBER 2046 SCHEDULE

https://i.imgur.com/yr5UYbw.png?1

Dead rubber from our perspective, although Tallinna Kalev are fighting to stay up. Still, let's try to earn six points to conclude a successful season.
