New Schedule; Post Season Intentions
The new schedule is out. How exciting! Hopefully the Saints will rebound after failing to reach any post season action last time around. "The initial goal is 10 wins for 2011. That is not quite as ambitious as before for this organization but that with some ties should get us in the playoffs/Majors Cups or both! Ofcourse another 12 wins like in 2009 would be even better." said the Saints manager. As requested by the Gateway Manager, following a First Kick match against the BSL champions, the Saints will play the Majors Cup champions next for week 2. "The mindset was to challenge the best head on right away. We are glad the league granted us our wishes" said the Saints owner. Other noteable matches will be week 5 against the hated Monarchs, uh Battle. The first revisit of the rival Gunners comes up in week 11. Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for announcements on which international opponents the Saints will play in 2011 in weeks 5 and 16. As far as preseason is concerned, there might time for 1 preseason fixture the week before first kick, but it all depends on how long the draft takes. "Its always good to set up a practice before the season, and all hopes is there will be a week between the draft and the season to set one up"
