After what seemed like the shortest summer break ever, I returned to Twerton Park this evening for Bath City’s first game of the 2010/11 campaign… OK, a pre-season friendly against Cardiff City.

According to the BBC website, Cardiff have a few financial problems. In fact, I am sure I spotted some of their players selling copies of The Big Issue on Twerton High Street, although that could have just been a Michael Chopra lookalike.

Cardiff brought a strong side, albeit short of a few quid. Given the team they faced, I feel Bath City conducted themselves very well and avoided embarrassment, “only” losing 2-0.

I was surprised by the massive police presence. At first I thought there had been a sighting of Raoul Moat in Twerton Chippy. Apparently certain members of the Cardiff City Fan Club, or whatever they’re called, have been known to use a few naughty words and steal other kids’ dinner money, which probably explains why the whole cast of The Bill were out in numbers… Somehow, I don’t think they were there to watch Bath City.

Best wishes to Cardiff next season – except when they play Leeds. Also, good luck in getting across the bridge – I hope you can afford it. I’ve never understood why you need to pay to get into Wales, yet it’s free to enter England.

    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.
