There’s a Weatherman on BBC named Matt Taylor, who revels in predicting rain. He loves it. Always looks crestfallen when predicting sun and heat. He’s probably a really nice bloke but for this reason, and only this reason, I hate him. I particularly hate him on a Friday, because you know he’s going to predict…… Continue reading 4/11/17 Barnsley v Blues. Harlee Dean the dancing queen
The bus into town made the two women jump when it arrived in front of them, so engrossed in looking at photos on their phones were they. I sat upstairs and had to endure the irritating tune that accompanied whatever game a bloke way too old to be playing on his gameboy. I never understood…… Continue reading 1/11/17 Blues v Brentford. Stung into action? Nope, not a hope.
I used to love Derby day. Town would be buzzing. Every pub would be packed from 11 o’clock onwards. Always a 3 o’clock kick off on a Saturday. No need to get tickets, whether you were at home or away. You turned up at 2 o’clock, usually earlier, and queued to get in. Thousands of…… Continue reading 29/10/17 Blues v Aston Villa. They went like the clappers
Always a postfix to yet another badly thought out attempt at helping someone. I’m not talking domestically here though.

I’m talking about our new. . . ish…… Continue reading “But their hearts in the right place”

Once again, the information board showed my train was boarding, it wasn’t. It always amazes me that with passengers obviously waiting for the doors…… Continue reading 28/10/17 Lincoln City v Crawley Town. Stalemate and stale chips
We were going to be hit by a storm called Brian. When I heard it was called Brian, I couldn’t get the image of Brian the dog from Family Guy chasing his tail, out of my head. Of all the names to call a storm, Brian is not a name that would spring to mind…… Continue reading 21/10/17 Millwall v Blues. Horses for courses
Thanks to those lovely people at Sky, another traditional 3 o’clock Saturday kick off had gone west and it meant that either I twiddle my thumbs at home or pick another game to go to. Except for Arsenal and West Ham, all the other grounds I’ve got to do to complete the 92, I’d already…… Continue reading 14/10/17 Haringey Borough v Heybridge Swifts F.A.Cup 4th qualifying round. Missile thrown at referees assistant.
