Better people than me out there that can remember these things but what would you say is the best six pointer you have ever seen? At Wroxham on Saturday some quarters described our match as exactly that, I´d say it was a little too early but with the teams at the bottom all playing each other in recent weeks and days to come each match takes on more significance. Tonight we travel to WARE FC who have found themselves at the wrong end once again like us and dare someone say this is a sixer? Most certainly we entertain BRENTWOOD TOWN on Saturday and will need to gain revenge for our 3-2 defeat earlier in the season. Its all about breathing space at the bottom now with both Wroxham and Great Wakering surely with too big a mountain to climb. There are mooted changes to league formats once again at the end of the season too, but one thing I would like to see always is promotion and relegation whatever changes. I think clubs and fans want it too, it always gives us that new place to visit feel, well usually. Anyway a little waffle for you on Valentines Day. Comments always welcome.
Of all the weekends to go away I had to travel to Scotland on the day Tottenham were playing Arsenal at White Hart Lane. I wouldnt have been there as you know, well maybe, I would have been at Brentwood Town watching the Abbotts. Well it was a mixed day I suppose, I watched the Spurs win 2-1 on social media with some lad running up and down the train to Glasgow at the final whistle. Whatever floats your boat. Hallett scores early for the Abbotts but the journey became gloomy as we went 3-1 down eventually losing 3-2 to a Brentwood side who are up there this season. Hallett hit both.
Still, watching all the Goons squirm on social media later was an experience, after that they all disappeared until tonight, the time of writing. A three day sleep. Spurs are back to normal service resumed with a 3-2 loss at Liverpool while the Goons send the library back to sleep with a narrow 2-1 win over bottom club Leicester. Have to say it was a cracking game on TV at Liverpool and I would think no football fan would deny that.
I did manage to see some football this weekendish though, I took my little Sunday son (Alf) to White Hart Lane last night to watch the Under 18’s play Manchester United in the FA Youth Cup fifth round. 2408 wasnt a bad crowd with a fair chunk of Man Utd fans coming in from London. Come on they aint come down have they! It was a great game of football and I was suitably impressed by the standard, both sides playing some great stuff and possessing great trickery. Spurs took the lead and Man Utd equalised with their first shot but eventually the home side ran out 3-1 winners. The crowd were in good form too, there is a section who only go to the Youth and Under 21 games and sing their hearts out. Some of the songs were a bit choice but they wernt doing any harm and seem to enjoy themselves. The whistling in me ear was a pain though. Well worth a look for only a fiver and pound for kids. NO hassle parking and the refreshments are open if you got a spare 100 quid lol. Anyway away again this weekend so I’m guessing any footie will be watched on TV once again.
See ya soon, amen Abbey Abbott
