Everyone reading this should count themselves lucky they’re getting a blog from me at all. I have been experiencing terrible trouble with my internet connection this past week, in that it keeps disconnecting while I am online. It has greatly affected my contributions to the British Mensa website.

A lot of troubleshooting has been carried out on my part. I’ve replaced all the cabling and filters, changed the router and even turned my PC off and back on again! Sadly, I am still am tormented by “connection drop out”. I do I fear a call to BT is in order. Ironically, I believe British Telecom operate from India nowadays. That’ll be one way to send my stress and tolerance levels through the roof.

Not a lot to say about this really. I went to see it on Friday. It was every bit as good as I expected it to be. Absolutely brilliant. I want to see it again at the cinema, as I don’t think I can wait until a DVD release.

Cast your minds back a couple of weeks to my blog which highlighted the fascinating fact involving teams losing to Leeds in the Carling Cup 1st Round and subsequently being relegated at the end of the season.

In this blog, a warning was sent to Bradford City fans about their fate come May 2012. Since this prophecy was made, “The Bantams” are still yet to win a game.

I know I have previously said that I was against unfounded, early season predictions, but in Bradford City’s case, their relegation has already been foretold.

The football season is now well underway and in all honesty, it could have started a little better for Bath City. An encouraging opening day draw at Mansfield was soon followed up by home defeats to Wrexham and Barrow. Some fans are already panicking about the dreaded “second season syndrome”, while others have gone one step further and condemned us to relegation already.

3 games out of 46 played and we’re doomed! You’ve got to love football supporters. While disappointed by the recent defeats, I like to think I am somewhat more level-headed than the pessimists and am not booking Bath City’s place in The Blue Square Bet South for the 2012/13 season just yet. No, I like to give my team at least 4 games before I cast judgement.

Leeds fans are even better. This time last week, Leeds had lost to both Southampton and Middlesbrough and like at Twerton Park, the dreaded “R” word had been mentioned in the grounds of Elland Road. One week later, a 4-1 demolition of Hull City and a draw at West Ham has seen Leeds United already declared as champions. I’ve already got the Blue Nun out to celebrate.

I’m currently watching the Leeds/Bradford Carling Cup game and just realised an interesting stat, which Sky are yet to pick up on…

In the previous three seasons, Leeds have played League Two clubs in the 1st Round of The Carling Cup. 2008 Chester City, 2009 Darlington and 2010 Lincoln City.

At the end of each season, every club Leeds played in August ended up being relegated from League Two to The Conference.

Tonight they’re playing Bradford City from League Two. Could Bath City be travelling to Valley Parade next year?

Having said all this, the fact Bradford have just scored as I type this blog, could save them from the drop come May.

    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.
