I had a lucky escape on my trip to Eastbourne yesterday. The Bath City coach was driving along the M4 when it passed a Southampton fan bus. I gave their fans a grin and a wave, before giving them a ‘going down’ gesture. Their fans replied with a much more offensive fingered salute. Luckily I was on the safety of the coach and there was no way the rabid supporters could get to me. I got rather frightened when we pulled into a motorway service station 5 minutes later – I was expecting a mob of angry Southampton fans waiting for me with baseball bats and sticks. Luckily they weren’t there.

On the way home I met a group of Swansea supporters. They were celebrating their win and promotion to the Championship. I dampened their celebrations a little by pointing out that they were not officially promoted, and that if Leeds got their stolen 15 points back next week, Swansea may have to make do with the play offs. Luckily those sets of supporters took it with the friendly banter it was intended and there was no need to start a fight in the car park.

  • 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.
