I'm finally moving out of my hotel in Bur Dubai this Friday, where i've been for 3 weeks. I'm moving to Horizon Tower on the Marina/by JLT metro. I really need to play some footy, or do some exercise of some sort, as my diet since i've been here has been awful (i'm currently waiting for Pizza Hut to deliver haha).... I play a fairly decent level of football back in the UK, and hope to get my fitness back pretty sharpish..... if anyone is part of a team that needs any players, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, give me a shout.

Thanks

James

Yeah, seen Duplays.... was wondering if anyone had a team already set up though, rather than just being put into a random one. Also, are there any other apart from Duplays?

Not as well organised and as good value. Duplays have 124 football teams playing most nights of the week. They also hire proper refs etc

Why don't all the EF members get together and form a football team? I'm sure there are other pizza lovers out here:p This way all the single ladies can come watch too. Two birds...one stone :D

Hi guys,

Yeah, i found a footy team to have a game with - my first game is this Thursday.... it's over in Al Quoz. There's Duplays too, down in Al Barsha, where you can just turn up and they put you in a team - i think that's the case, but don't quote me.

As for starting a new team - i'm well up for that. if anyone wants a kick about or a serious game, i'm in!

@Simon - if you want to head down to Duplays some time (or organise a team for one of their leagues together) let me know.... Seriously missing my football fix.

Cheers,

jAMES

It looks like the Duplays league starts at the end of the month.. You can rent a 5 a side pitch of them so maybe if we get enough people who want to come and play we could go down there for a kick about? by the response we have had in the last hour i'm sure we could get enough people..! What do you think?

Yeah, well up for getting some people together and heading up there for a kickabout - rent the pitch for 1hr or 90 mins and just play a game with whoever turns up.

I would've signed up for a team at the end of the month, but i'm going on holiday in April, and i'm going to miss at least two weeks, so put it off, but would be up for entering a league if there were people to cover those two weeks.

So then - who's up for some footy?

I played in a men's 5 a side league back home, I wouldn't say I'm good but I hold my own in that league
