0008 - Title Unknown

End of the regular season sometimes comes with the mixed emotions of needed a break but at the same time going to be missing it. Now after the amazing scenes last Saturday when Barnstoneworth United became perhaps the first time with a fictional club name from a TV show to win a FV State League I am now looking around to doing cup finals and the like.

This Saturday I will be heading to do two matches from the Victorian Churches FA as Knox Churches host their cup finals. Two times and current Premier League and Chaos Cup winners Mooroolbark Knights will be taking on the might of Berwick Churches in the main cup final.

On Sunday looking at perhaps the MCSA cup final. I have never been to one of that leagues matches so might be as good as any to introduce myself  as Clube takes on Carlton Azzurri. Now only downside rain is predicted for the day.

Well more tom work out in the coming weeks but yeah I also want to be able to enjoy some of the better weather that is coming up.

0007 - The Final Round!

Ok, choosing a last round match is sort of getting harder and harder. In Football Chaos first full year (2009, started in 2008) I actually ended up at a match between Ringwood City and St Kevins where Ringwood was attempting to win their first league championship after a horrid run of relegation's in perhaps the clubs darkest years. It wasn't a State League match. nor a Provisional League match but the then Metropolitan League (not the current Metro League) match. a division that sat below the Provisional Leagues. Why, because no one really cared where I went to back then and so I just picked something that I felt would have meant something.

Now many years later I am going to head to...

▶ Barnstoneworth United vs Keilor Wolves S.C.

This is a risky contest as one or the other team could win the league or Balmoral could grab the title if they defeat Maidstone added with Barnstoneworth dropping points. So why this one?

Well oddly enough it is because of the comments that I have read from Melton Phoenix FC and Ballarat Soccer Club in regards to how Barnstoneworth has conducted themselves in the first year of the state leagues. They have left a remarkable impression on clubs that is so sadly missing in community football.

It is a club that donated countless dollars to charities over the years as well. They have set and amazing example and one that I would feel privilege to record regardless of the result.

Hope this all make sense and apologies to other clubs for not making it too their big contest.

Once again I forgot to post something on the page so here is a quick run down of latest events.

Three matches was recorded last weekend with the Doveton v Caulfield United Cobras selected after a ball draw done a the shops with my son Aiden. He is only six and has no care in the world where I go so it is as fair as it gets! Crazy match too that turned out to be.

Also recorded was Brighton vs Middle Park on Friday night from the State League 3 South East and on Saturday night North Caulfield vs Boroondara Carey Eagles that resulted in the Eagles winning the State League 2 South East championship.

A few new toys has been added to my arsenal of camera equipment with a new GoPro 7 Black and and the amazing to use DJI Osmo Pocket that is going to help with the start and ending footage being much more smoother etc. That set me back $1100 so any donations I have received just goes back into this project of love!!!

🎦 Videos are uploaded here... or the facebook page.

What not much went to plan today with the wife's car stuck with a flat battery so all plans for a Sunday match was called off. So if everything is back to normal I look to head to Egan Lee Reserve on Monday night for a catch up round fixture from the State League 2 South East as Knox City host Monbulk Rangers.

In the meantime I am finishing up with the editing from the Waverley Wanderers v Glen Waverley match.


Well after making a very late decision because of the heavy rain we have received over the past few days I eventually ended up at Waverley Wanderers vs Glen Waverley catch up match with the pitch all good to go.

Last time I visited Carlson Reserve was for the FFA Cup match between Waverley Wanderers and Lalor United that provided plenty of coverage for the Wanderers after winning that one 1-0. Still one of the highest watched video of the year.

Another option I considered was the VCFA Cup Semi Final between Berwick Untied and Whitehorse United as that was shifted to a synthetic pitch.

Now once again no plans set for Sunday so its wait and see.

Nothing more to be said. So so good. From Caulfield United Cobras.

Tuesday, 6 August 2019


That was a busy weekend! Ok,now four games recorded and edited is more than I can handle at times but somehow got all the highlights edited and now up. The last match from the State League 1 South East I only decided when I inspected the venue as the pitch is surrounded and ridiculous high fence line that would put of many people to watch the match as spectators. Anyhow this is the list of matches now up on youtube.

1. WSL1SE - Croydon City v Monbulk Rangers
2. VCFA - Whitehorse United v Bayswater Strikers
3. WLS3S - Caulfield Cobras v Beaumaris
4. SL1SE - Beaumaris v St Kilda.

Well two games recorded with plenty of goals scored between them which sort of put me off from doing a Saturday night fixture. Plenty enough editing to sort out as it is. Now got my drone up which has been sort out of action with mixed results. The video is so bad because of a fault with the gimbal.

Anyhow what i did enjoy was the goals scored in the VCFA match between Whitehorse United and Bayswater Strikers. Some crackers for sure. Now back to editing and to sort out what match if any to head to tomorrow (Sunday)

Oh yeah, I have a page to update.

Sorry to anyone that comes to this website / blog and find it never updated! Simple reason is that for the most part I have just concentrated on video highlights and since most people either view them on facebook or youtube their just little reason to re-post them here.

Now I will be working back on this page when the season dies off and start updating the venue section again with the many images I and The Man in the Stands have shot though out the season. Besides that perhaps fix up and update the history page for winners etc. Otherwise since it has little amount of people actually checking out this page no point in updating it otherwise.
