It was a bright but cold day in Glasgow as the inaugural Roy Tregay Memorial Cup got off to a busy start with two latecomers in Davids and Pauleta joining at the last moment to take the participants up to 12.
After an extended opening ceremony which saw Cliff Richard and The Prodigy perform together for the first (and possibly the last) time, the games began.
On-paper favourites Barcelona, managed by Reidondo, were put to the sword by some swift counter-attacking football from Kevincha’s Bayern Munich side, finishing 5-0.
In the second game of Match Day 1, Lovengrants’ AC Milan side went up 1-0 early but were pegged back to 2-1 just before half time by a determined Man City side, shouted on by their normally reserved manager Stewartchov. The game was to finish 3-1 to the billionaire side.
Today’s late kick-off of Real Madrid vs Chelsea is subject to a late pitch inspection at 5pm.
– UPDATE –
After the pitch was cleared for play, Revillinho’s Chelsea ground out a 1-0 win over rivals Real Madrid, coached by mental wargames expert Brooney. The Londoners had the chance to seal the game 2-0 in the 84th minute but were let down by sheer greediness from rampant full back Ashley Cole.
