Good morning football fans
Game number two of the season was played against the horrible and ugly Olympic Eagles. Everyone was hoping that there wasn’t a repeat of last year where big Andy saw red and turned into Frank Bruno, swingingly wildly but not actually connecting with anyone (secretly everyone was hoping that it happened again cause it was really funny)
Michael started in goal and Paddy started in the unfamiliar position of centre back as Sgt Cryer (Wadsworth) had a dose of man flu. Liam and big Andy were upfront and apart from that there weren’t any changes from the week before.
So as soon as the game got underway it started pissing it down but Barnstoneworth started on top and created some good chances. Birchy’s shot in a crowded box was blocked on the line, also we had a good header just fall wide. But Barnstoneworth’s first real chance came when the ball was put into the box and Bren headed just wide from about 8 yards, his jump for the ball was more impressive then the header though, I can only compare it to Jimmy Superfly Snuker’s big splash from the top of the steel cage at Madison Square Garden on June 28th 1982, Emotional.
Barnstoneworths new defence didn’t allow Ugly Olympic Eagles many opportunities at goal, in fact all Michael had to do was catch a few crosses and take a few goal kicks, and our fear that Paddy’s arse would be playing Eagles onside all game didn’t seem to happen.
Barnstoneworths best chance of the half (and the match) came from Paddy’s Ray Houghton like defence splitting ball that put Chris through on goal, unfortunately Chris did a Jason Lee like finish and put the ball wide. After this the Barnstoneworth players looked towards there inspirational manager Eddy Sweeny for advice and motivation, unfortunately Eddy was sat in his car with the rest of us cause it was freezing.
Half Time 0 – 0
In the second half not much happened, neither team really got into the game. Wee man was put on to help out the attack but found himself mainly defending and Rab came on but didn’t punch anyone or even loss his temper which was disappointing.
The games winning goal was scored with 5 minutes to go from a free kick around 25 yards out, it seemed to skid on the rain drenched surface and unfortunately Michael couldn’t divert it round the post. 1 – 0 to Olympic eagles
Everyone was pissed off after the game and went back to the Coach, this reporter didn’t though but I can guess what happened, erm….John got pissed and started telling everyone about his fat Wendy story’s, then asked the bar maid for her number again (she said no) then got chucked out by fat pants for either pi**ing in the beer garden or trying to take his clothes off. Standard night.
