Would Messi travel 3,502kms?

Now I know Spain is quite a large nation too… but Australia… let’s face it.. is a massive Country. Australia is a country, a continent, and an island all in 1! We the people are renowned as being from Down-Under!

The point I’m trying to make here but failing miserably.. is that I seriously doubt that Lionel Messi, without doubt the World’s Greatest Player on any Soccer field today, would have to travel 3,502kms for a regular league season match… for his Spanish La-Liga club of Barcelona!?

Well this is what my EVIL INCORPORATED team faced today against an old foe in our League Series Round 3 clash against the Fremantle Sharks, and as we have already departed our small suburb of Somerville, located in the far south-east suburbs of the city of Melbourne, region of Victoria in Hattrick, we have caught a team bus from our home stadium, the Somerville Super Stadium, from their it took about a 90 minute drive by bus to the Melbourne Tullamarine Airport, where we then hopped on a Jetstar Domestic Flight from Melbourne in the far south east of Australia.. and flew in Economy class to the far south western city of Perth.. this flight took approximately 2.5 hours of which we travelled accross multiple different time zones as Perth is 2 hours behind us here in Melbourne.. We arrived in sunny Perth to a pleasant greeting from our clubs loyal travelling fans (The Brain Washed) who have come along for the occassion but arrived a day early to sample the city of Perth and pre-match festivities..

After a quick meet, greet, autograph signing, many photo’s and some local media obligations, we were then whisked away and into another bus that headed down the highway from the Perth Airport and headed via the scenic route down to the Western Australian Regional town of Fremantle down on the docks at the Port of Fremantle, even this short little trip took another 90 mins in that bus as Perth’s traffic congestion seemed a tad worse than this time last season… But once we arrived at the beautiful home stadium of Fremantle Sharks, called ‘The Shark Pit’ a boutique sized arena of 30,000, but with top class facilities on offer for both teams, fans and the media contingent that gathers…

The team needed to stretch their legs, after such a long trip accross the nation… so we quickly had our bags taken down and into the stadiums change rooms where we got into our training gear and stepped out onto the hallowed turf that is The Shark Pit.. The playing surface was in immaculate condition as always, and the baking hot sun on it and our backs made the experience all the more great!

This training session (of which we appreciate our opposition allowing us to do…) consisted of some basic stretching and warm ups, then some laps around the pitch, then we got stuck into some drills that the training coach had specifically come up with for this match.. all went well, and the lads have pulled-up extremely well after it and will now be relaxing back at the team hotel for the night before the big match kicks off at 12 Midday local Perth time / or 2pm Melbourne time / or even 4am HT Time… EVIL INC. will be at full strength for the match and the coaching staff and manager have been seen and heard heavily scouting this opponent in readiness for such a crucial match of the season..

Match day will consist of a early wake up, morning breakfast down at a local cafe, quick walk down at the local junior soccer fields where we as a club will again be having a presence, signing autographs, having photo’s taken with all the juniors of this far away region, and I’m sure the players will want to help local coaches with the kid’s training and skills… Once that’s all done then back to the team bus with all the gear, then drive down back to The Shark Pit, for the big clash!

It should be a cracker! Be sure to add it to your HT-Live’s!

From the City of Perth here in Western Australia.. that’s WozzaNoski over and out!

About WozzaNoski

Pills, Needles, Liquids, Powders and Tobacco's... arn't they all just great!? haha ;p I'm just a simple guy in my mid 30's trying to make my way in life, and I constantly battle against the tide of a mortgage, bills, car costs, grocery costs and just anything else that involves damn money! haha but most important of all.. is that I'm a father-to-be to hopefully a happy, healthy and gorgeous young baby girl, and I'm also the loving boyfriend of the amazing Pauline.. But I love hanging out with the boys, playing and watching most sports, doing the whole family thing... and meeting new people.. As For Hattrick... WozzaNoski began his Hattrick Career back in November 2008 (Season 25) under the username of "biggwozz" after weekly niggles from close friends + Poker Mates (leeny63 + SlyTel) who Introduced him to the Game we all love Hattrick.org! The Original Club Team Name was Woz's Terrorists which started in + spent 3.5 Seasons in VI.79 where they Won it Twice before being Promoted to Div V.93 where they spent another 3 Seasons in that.. Winning + Promoting from Once thus far... The username "biggwozz" was quickly changed to WozzaNoski to give a more appropriate Soccer name.. Div V was where WozzaNoski finally came to grips with the Forums + a decent Training Regime, the result of such Forum usage contributed to "forced name changes" to what they were back yonder... (Woz's Fanatics / Somerville Super Stadium).. Since that time the Fanatics had built a Solid Fan Base + a Young up & coming Squad full of various potential National Team Players for the Future + a Stockpile of Great Coaches! WozzaNoski has also been a Significant Contributor to the SEN 1116 Fans Federation here in Melbourne/Victoria & he alone has Increased the Members base after a Recruitment Drive in January 2011.. from 9 when he re-joined in December of 2010 to what it is now which is a Healthy & Vibrant 62! + is Recognised as 1 of the Largest Feds in all of Oceania! Much time has passed for our Team and Myself as a Manager in HT, thus another recent team name change, to Evil Penguins Inc. and another drop back down from Div IV down to Oceanian Div V! EVIL Penguins Inc. huh... well that part of history didn't last long either... I recently went through even more changes after the club was renamed EVIL Penguins Inc. where lastly over to the now fitting... EVIL INCORPORATED! Which is what it will now stay until the hattrick world we know it fails to exist! I currently reside in V.44.. the 28th ranked Div V in all of Oceania.. This is my 8th Season back down in Div V, after the first Season Finishing in 2nd Spot! Unfortunately again I sit 3rd on the table + hence will be staying down to Div V for some lengthy Camping/Hoarding of Cash ready for a Future Tilt at Div's 3 + 2 + the Pacific Premier! 1 thing to note is.. where-ever WozzaNoski goes, Controversy Always Follows!
