Well I’m back home from my trip to Leeds after a nightmare car journey. Six fucking hours in a car moving at a snail pace through traffic jam after traffic jam. The journey from Bath to Leeds should only take 3 hours if there is no traffic!

The reason for the delay was millions of morons descending upon shopping centres across the country for the January Sales. There were tail backs for miles around every major city, shoppers from Meadowhill in Sheffield, Birmingham and Cribbs Causeway in Bristol.

Stuck somewhere on the M42, snowing outside, bored out my mind

The weather was very cold today, the gritter vans had their work cut out

On the way down to Bath I was listening to BBC Five Live, some psychologist was on talking about how idiotic shoppers are going over the top with these sales, queuing outside shopping centres in the freezing cold just to save a few pounds on an item they would never normally think of buying.

One shopper was on the news boasting how he queued outside a Next clothes shop from 2am and managed to buy a jumper for £32 which normally retailed for £49. Fucking madness, if you asked this man to freeze his bollocks off, sleeping rough for £17 (what he saved on the jumper) any other day of the year he would laugh at you, so why do it for the sales!!??

Anyway, back to the roads, these idiotic shoppers complete with Christmas holiday makers returning home lead to an afternoon of misery. Had Leeds not won 3-1 yesterday my last two days would have been a waste of time.

Lastly, as promised I have made this commentary mix of the Coventry game. Not up to my normal standard but I didn’t have much commentary clips to work from.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
