    Meta kont qed nara partita nametti li dak hin rajtu late lil Ramon (Kif ukoll hasbu hekk il-kolleggi tieghi.). Illum li rajt slow xi 5 darbet nammetti li l-ewwel wiehed huwa dubjuz filwaqt li tieni foul woods accenna il-waqa. Nahseb Sandro ilum waqt Kontrattakk tajnikom l-opportunita li taraw slowmo ghal iktar minn darba fiz-zewg azzjonijiet. Thanks tali segwina. Joshua
