I went to Wales this evening to watch Bath City play Newport in the FA Cup. Every time I have gone to Wales in the past, bad things always seems to happen to me, especially when it involves football. It didn’t start too well this evening either.

After getting off the coach, the first thing I saw was a piece of dog excrement. No word of a lie! What a nice welcome to Wales that was. We did manage to get access to the clubhouse; but only after being given wristbands and escorted in like primary school children. Upon entering the bar, I found they had completely sold out of hot food, the queue to buy drinks was massive, and the selection of beverages very poor.

Still, I came to watch the football – that did not disappoint. City dominated for the vast majority of the game, and came away worthy 2-1 winners. Bath were by far the better team, and it wasn’t until late on in the match, when Newport scored to turn City’s 2-0 lead to just 2-1. To say the final 10 minutes of the game were nerve-wrecking would be a gross underestimate. This stress, however, made for a entertaining match. The most important thing is, for the first time ever, I left Wales with a win.

Bring on the FA Cup draw on Monday. A nice easy team at home, please; then Leeds United in the 1st Round Proper – my dream tie!

  • 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.
