    Prosit lil Melita tar-reb? tal-kampjonat, fl-opinjoni tieg?i kienu l-iktar tim konsistenti. Prosit lir-Rabat Ajax li ?ew promossi wkoll. U fl-a??ar grazzi lil Carmel Formosa u Jason Cachia tas-servizz li taw lil-log?ba tal-ballun spe?jalment l-a??ar sentejn fejn lag?bu bil-flokk ?ejtuni. Grazzi lil Plejers, kumitat u staff tekniku ta?-?ejtun Corinthians g?ax kollox ma’ kollox kellna sta?un ie?or tajjeb.
