Sean's Stories

This blog post aged well.

Written in December 2018, I fantasized about various outcomes, come the end  of the season…

Leeds to finish as Championsha! We couldn’t even get second place in the end. Sure Leeds are in the Play Offs, but there is more chance of me running the London Marathon, than my team getting promoted.

Liverpool to win the Premier League While my wife, Claire, was able to enjoy her team giving their league rivals a good many more problems than Leeds did theirs, the Reds ultimately fell short – losing the title this afternoon, to that lot in Manchester. No… not Manchester United. There’s more chance of me WINNING the London Marathon, than that team winning anything.

Bath City to win the Play Offs – It was the Play Off Final this afternoon. City were supposed to be playing. Well, according to my fantasy, from five months ago, they were! City weren’t even involved. This is because they had lost to Wealdstone, in an earlier knock-out round. Wealdstone then went on to lose themselves, so didn’t get to the final either. Overall a waste of time. Oh, fiddle-sticks.

Casting my fantasies aside, I also made some actual predictions. I would say that they are scarily accurate, apart from the fact that it was flippin’ obvious I would guess correctly…

Leeds to miss out on automatic promotion and bottle the Play Offs So far, so predictably shite. Automatic promotion is but a distant memory. Leeds are still in the Play Offs, but the brewery has the bottles all ready to… well, bottle!

Liverpool to finish second, behind Man City All over the news. This seems to have received more coverage than 9/11. I know this blog is just adding to the hype.

Bath City to finish outside the Play Offs Not officially a prediction, as to my friends, family and fellow supporters, I’ve been saying the opposite all season. I thought being negative about everything, would make my blog post appear better…  it works for Jack Dee and Simon Cowell. City did make the Play Offs, so proved me right, but sadly fell short.

While Bath City’s season is well and truly over, and won’t play a competitive game until August; Liverpool have a small matter of a Champions League final, while Leeds remain in the Play Offs – for now!

I predict Liverpool will be victorious, with Leeds ending calamitous. These are my serious predictions, but I would be delighted to jinx things and for Leeds to go up, even if in doing so, it costs my wife’s beloved Reds – sorry, Claire!

  • 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.
