Al Ain Fab

Did not hum along like a well-oiled machine on Friday, but they keep slipping away from Al Ahli thanks to a last minute winner from Ismael Ahmed.

Like Al Ain, left it to the last minute to take home all three points. But isn’t that the characteristic of a Champion or a potential Champion?

Fabio de Lima – a life-long Waslawi in the making. That’s all.

Just give Sebastian Tagliabue the top scorer of the season award right now and call it a day. Lone goal from the Argentinean was enough to see them through against a tough opponent.

AFC Champions League credentials on the stake after Friday night’s loss to Al Wahda. Will need to figure out a way to cough up a draw at least, if not a win against top teams.

This team has fortunately been scraping out results even if it hasn’t been pretty. However, losing valuable points against lower tiered teams makes us question their credentials to be a top four side.

Painful lesson for the central defenders. Even more painful was giving up a goal after holding the Champions for 90 minutes. To breakdown at the end like that was disappointing. Still maintained No. 7 because we are yet to be confirmed by Al Jazira’s performance.

They are not pretty, but had taken an acceptable result away from home against a averagely strong Al Shabab team. The Power Rankings commends Jazira on their pragmatism.

Have been on a slippery slope since that embarrassing loss to Dibba Al Fujairah. Ex-striker and still the club’s top goalscorer of the season – Jo must be enjoying this.

Nothing much to say here. Took the lead with a well placed finish only to be manhandled for 70 minutes after that. Will be glad that they went back to Ras Al Khaimah with a point.

When it mattered, Makhete Diop delivered. And that too through a 89th minute game winning header. Weird but has scored three headers in 85th+ minute throughout the season. Something there for the statisticians.

They were arguably the better team through the 83rd minute, before Ibraheem Alawi’s red card. Fell apart afterwards with fans surely being at the edge now.

Tough back-to-back losses against Dubai based sides. Late in the season, but yet to figure out how this defense communicates which each other.

Bubble has burst and they are back to square one – which unfortunately translates into losing.
