Posted by sean on June 7, 2020 at 8:11 pm in The Roman Chalice with No Comments


Who here remembers the Roman Chalice? Probably not many of you. Perhaps this will jog your memory…

I do worry about the theory of the Roman Chalice being somewhat of a curse and the possibility of it playing a part in coronavirus spreading across the entire globe! Probably just a coincidence, but best not mention it to anyone, hey? Just in case…

Anyway… clearly, the Roman Chalice could not be contested while there was no football. This meant that Greek side PAOK were able to keep hold of the trophy for 96 days – a record in Chalice history.

I would normally heap praise upon PAOK for retaining the honour for such a long period of time. However, they only played one game as holders. A game in which they lost. To Olympiakos. Ironically the team who they beat to obtain the Chalice way back in March. Never has the phrase ‘You had one job’ been more appropriate.

So, I am sure you will all join me in congratulating Olympiakos for their impressive display this evening – a 1-0 victory, in front of no spectators.

That’ll do, Kos. That’ll do.

  • 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.
