Rumour has it that a lot of our new recruits will be in action against Brighton & Hove Albion as a last chance before the trip to Stoke. Kick off is at 2pm, the b'stards wont let me in as its 'behind closed doors'
Just read an article in this weeks Non League Paper about a footballer who was told he was dying. He had already said his goodbyes to many of his friends when he spotted a story on the internet about a possible cure for the rare disease he was diagnosed with. 7 months later he was back playing for Borrowash Victoria whose ground is not far from Pride Park or whatever its called these days.
Just got back from the Southall v Chesham United preseason friendly. In the first half Southalls No14 committed two fouls in a minute . He then started remonstrating with the referee and you clearly heard the ref say " would you care to go and sit on the bench for ten minutes" which he did. Ten minutes later the ref waved the player back on the pitch ???
Yesterday the club published the under 23 preseason games. Literally everyone corresponds with first team games. Now I understand with Saturday games they will coincide...........but the Friday the first team are playing in Vienna, 150 miles up the road the under 23s are playing in Budapest against Budafoki. If the game in Budapest was played on Saturday fans in Vienna could do both games ??? Also, the day the first team play at Boreham Wood, the u23s are away to Middlesex County League Premier Division Brentham FC who play a short walk from Hanwell Towns ground. One could be played on Tuesday and the other Wednesday surely ??? And having seen us play Oxford at the Kassam Stadium in 2009 I will be giving that a swerve as the u23s host the Kuwait National Team the same day.
