Man that was an awful time at Gibraltar, damn.

I hope you do better in Georgia, but this looks like a hell of an ask too.
070563 - 120815

I'll see you
@Eric Portapotty - Starting to think I should avoid Gibraltar altogether, just doesn't fit my playing style. Hopefully Batumi are a shred better than Lincoln.

UMAGLESI LIGA

MATCHDAY 19


https://i.imgur.com/IyS21r9.png?1

Thrown into the deep end against the defending champs. Never threatened, only looked like playing possum while Tbilisi had their own way. Panchenko coolly finishing at Khoklov's near post and that was only a taster. Corners continue to be the bane of my existence, two unmarked headers in either half killed off any ounce of determination left to muster an even playing field.

MATCHDAY 20

https://i.imgur.com/CTI1deb.png?1

Bit of a hyperbolic headline to say we were lucky against a wasteful Sioni side. The plaudits belonged to Khutsishivilli with two fine curling strikes, one of which from a free kick as Sioni's front three looked very low on confidence. The fantastically named Arquimedes was anything but mathematical for the home side, falling to pieces every time he got into the box. That said, a 25 yard free kick by Gogoberishvili had us sweating heading into the final yards. Well earned three points in the end.

MATCHDAY 21

https://i.imgur.com/XDwk4p9.png?1

A magnificent comeback with two Puskas quality hits turned into a one way ticket to the reserves for central defender Viktor Ilyin. At fault for one of the two clangers we let in in the first twenty minutes and then completely defensively AWOL from a route one ball to let Kutaisi immediately strike back after vigorously bringing the game back to 2-2. Tanchyk and Krashenko's goals were things of beauty, worthy of rewards. The moment it went 3-2, deflation wasn't even the word. Devastated.

Some context to describe my feelings.

MATCHDAY 22

https://i.imgur.com/5q6bTIv.png?1

The pain of the last defeat washed away by a stunning victory away to leaders Samtredia. Going behind is standard for us nowadays but the bombarding response was serendipitous; Lezhava thankful to latch onto a fumbled free kick followed by Süleymanov instantly flipping the scoreline. This had all the signs of becoming a golden vault game, especially when Samtredia squandered a penalty one minute, then a fortunate own goal in the next highlight drew the game level. Poised at 2-2 and breaking into thirty shots on goal, we absolutely deserved the winner from tight angle specialist Sandro Khutsishvilli and leaving the home faithful in stunned silence. Some game.

DAVIT KIPIANI CUP

THIRD ROUND


https://i.imgur.com/s5DAR40.png?1

Sod it, didn't really want to win this cup anyways...3-2 seems to be our favourite scoreline of late, especially when we choke hard. Twice ahead, twice shoddily pegged back, the game ebbed and flowed every which way against the runaway leaders of the Pirveli Liga. Magomed Rogachev was an odious mosquito looking to bite and bit hard at the worst possible time, beating the offside trap to tuck it under Khokhlov as extra time loomed. I'm miffed, but at least the concentration swings firmly back on the league.

RESULTS OVERVIEW

https://i.imgur.com/48P2zyY.png?1

Momentum is all over the place, sinusoidally jumping from win to defeat with nothing in between. While I like the fact we can hit the back of the net, our defence cannot hold concentration for ninety minutes. Khutsishvilli in hot form as well as Tanchyk who is starting to get the creative juices flowing. But yeah, critical our defence buck up their ideas sooner rather than later.

LEAGUE TABLE

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

We'd be out of the bottom three if it weren't for that scarring loss to Torpedo Kutaisi, alas we remain bottom but only a point adrift. Realistically can't see us reaching higher than sixth despite my quixotic promises to the board about potentially finishing top half.

How many games do you play in Georgia? 27 or 36? If it's the latter I could be reasonably confident of you staying up.

I'll see you
@Eric Portapotty - It's a 36 game season.

YOUTH INTAKE

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

Been a while since I've looked through a youth intake, sadly Batumi's wasn't really something to write home about. Couple of average defenders, a versatile attacking midfielder and a goalkeeper at the top of the potential list. Overall, nothing special.

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

In other news, our loanee Erol Gedik wanted to emulate the lavish Neymar lifestyle for a day. Shame he's a nobody doing f*ck all on the pitch when called upon.

UMAGLESI LIGA

MATCHDAY 23


https://i.imgur.com/Igj0XxF.png?1

All went horribly wrong against league chasing Chikhura. Fourth choice Brazilian striker Toni used his target man specialties to head in a whipped cross in a first half he looked to take charge of. That was until a penalty before the break turned the overall tide. Gocha Tevzadze clinically took us apart in the second half to leave an uphill task for us, while we went on to miss four more clear cut chances. This is why we're stuck in a relegation fight.

MATCHDAY 24

https://i.imgur.com/38YBjSD.png?1

I reiterate - THIS IS WHY WE ARE IN THE DROPZONE. As far as striking performances go, this was just insulting. 14 shots, 1 on target...that came in the 84th minute when they fell down to ten men. Saburtalo bided their time and showed quality is better than quantity, 100% on target ratio and their liquid football going forward earned them a tap in on the stroke of half time. Felt like I due a stroke myself after watching this.

MATCHDAY 25

https://i.imgur.com/o1Y62Q7.png?1

Two words; BULL. SHIT. I can turn a blind eye to one stonewall penalty appeal, but TWO is inept refereeing or a brown envelope situation. To their credit, Dila's opening goal was unstoppable from Klontsak, looping the ball into the top left corner to take a supposedly deserved lead. Didn't take long before a bit of 'Dila-dallying' allowed Khutsishvilli to plant a sumptuous cross to Süleymanov who headed in nicely. Ironically enough our concentration lapsed after the kickoff as substitute Äliyev tipped the scales back in Dila's favour. Khutsishvilli turned provider again, this time for Pavel Mitin to tapped in for a

Is that right now? I deserve to be sacked? Look closer to home buddy (Sioni have lost four of their last five). Mind you we were clenching towards the end, blowing our 3-0 advantage with a penalty from Mitin, a first for improving central defender Yury Skvortsov and Süleymanov dusting them off. Instead of taking them to the cleaners with half a dozen clear cut chances, instead we became cocky - Guy Ngah punishing us again and assisted Iakovenko to test our metal. Three points will do, no matter how or where they come from.

https://i.imgur.com/kkVMh0I.png?1

And there goes our only competent left back for the guts of the EOS run in.

RESULTS OVERVIEW

https://i.imgur.com/k7dnolR.png?1

Still not good enough in my opinion. Bottling the Samtredia and Saburtalo games to being robbed in broad daylight to Dila doesn't fill me with joy, I'll be honest. The very least was to get that important win over Tshkinvali, and even then we made that into a chore. A dry month for Khutsishvilli but did get a number of assists which I'm content with, but frankly our squad definitely has the quality to stay afloat yet I'm just not seeing it.

LEAGUE TABLE

https://i.imgur.com/AV7CftT.png?1

Somehow we're still rooted to the foot of the league, now a three point margin to escape. Thankfully that sh*t-talking cockwobble's Sioni side have been sucked into the maelstrom. Lots of points to play for with our last ten games, it's do or die from here on in.

AHAHAHAHA that's some good karma shit right there

But man... At least you're only 5 points from mid-table? Every cloud etc. I guess.

I'll see you
This is going to be a good fight to save yourself from the drop!

There are still ten games left, we can do it! C'mon Batumi!
Fino alla fine
@Eric Portapotty - Silver linings don't come easy in Georgia, this has been a total circus for Batumi.

@Dan - I'm hoping I won't choke this. Knowing me, I've already probably cursed us.

@tongey - This is more like nuclear diarrhea time let me tell you.

@bcsaulJ - Ten cup finals indeed, shame we suck at cup finals these days.

MATCHDAY 27


https://i.imgur.com/5aLflfP.png?1

Felt the Tskhinvali win would have given us a platform to build upon. Instead our efforts came up short in a narrow defeat to Zugdidi, a cracking strike by Zolotarenko outside the area being the difference. This after Pavel Mitin was presented with a glorious chance to nudge us ahead only two minutes earlier, the post got the better of him.

MATCHDAY 28

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

Gargantuan win here, quite possibly our best performance this season. Dinamo's four game winning run didn't exactly show, despite a crack at the woodwork and a one on one saved by Khokhlov, they looked pretty pedestrian, you wouldn't think they're top of the league. Mitin in Mitin fashion had a handful of key efforts muffled by the Tbilisi goalkeeper. Took a late free kick from Kraschenko to stamp authority on the game and my word it was beautifully struck. Would have been happy with a point, very few complaints about taking the biscuit.

MATCHDAY 29

https://i.imgur.com/awFhQ7j.png?1

I quote "Nealon should be sacked". Shame his diddy team Sioni barely threatened us with their shoot on sight mentality, not a single clear cut chance created. Davit Lomidze easily could have marked the day with a hat-trick, but was the difference maker nonetheless with a fierce strike to almost take the net off it's hinges. Poetic justice if I've ever seen it.

MATCHDAY 30

https://i.imgur.com/bDwF5DW.png?1

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

Torpedo may have got lucky last game, this on the other hand was no fluke. Couldn't even register a half chance all game, let alone anything clear cut. Two carelessly conceded penalties and a strong counter attack pestled us into the ground and could've ended with half a dozen. Really discouraging with only a handful of games left to play. To make matters worse, our creative beacon of late Tanchyk is unlikely to feature in the final run in.

MATCHDAY 31

https://i.imgur.com/DV5rjvm.png?1

Well, ain't that just a kick in the nads to end off this month? So wasteful as per when at most times we were restricting the opposition to long range efforts. Funnily enough that was the source of their opener, Ushakov's belter ensuring a half time lead for the travellers. Hope was not all lost, Lomidze is a ray of light in these murky days and grabbed the equaliser that we thought earned us a point. Wrong. Sweaty, sweaty goal from Grigol Abesadze latching onto Ushakov's low cross to sweep home in injury time. Will that be a goal to condemn us to the drop?

RESULTS OVERVIEW

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

Was looking oh so fine before the two defeats towards the end of October. Lomidze compensating for our striking woes of late, just seems so hopeless at times to motivate these boys. Tanchyk's injury won't help matters as we enter the final five games to seal our fate.

LEAGUE TABLE

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

Total chaos down at the bottom. It'll take just one win to sneak out of the relegation zone but how many times have we said that now? We've been rock bottom for the longest time and with confidence running low, I fear a second relegation in the journey looming. Praying RNG dishes out some good luck.
