Every football fan knows the song from the terraces “The referee’s a wanker, he wears a wanker’s hat…” Tonight, the chant couldn’t have been more fitting. Bath City away to Mangotsfield United. If City won, they would champions. If not, the champagne would sit in the bucket for ice for another few days.

Bath drew 0-0. They should have won. This is not down to missed chances by the strikers, Bath scored two – BOTH disallowed. Neither is it down to the strong defence of the opposition – they were clumsy, violent thugs, who on any other day, would have been sent off. No, for once, every piece of blame can be put upon the shoulders of the referee and his linesmen – they had a mare! Disallowed goals, penalties not given, players staying on the pitch that should be off it – the list goes on. I can quite honestly say, it was the worst performance from a football official I have ever seen.

So, we have to wait a few more days for the game against Yate at the weekend, or just pray that Team Tax fail to win at Tiverton on Thursday. Hopefully then, City will finally be Champions.

By the way – if anyone captured my wild celebration for the ‘goal that never was’ in the second half, where I climbed onto the wall and swung from the goal net support bar, let me know! :o)

  • 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.
