Well Bath lost 2-0. This was the first time the team I went support has been defeated. By all accounts City did not play well although I haven’t seen any other non-league games to compare it to. I had an enjoyable time though.

The atmosphere was very good, there was well over 2,000 fans which for a club of Bath City’s size is a huge amount.

The referee and linesmen had terrible games, sending a City player off early on and making awful, inconsistent decisions. The crowd certainly let the officials know what they felt of them.

Chippenham had a rather tubby goalkeeper who loved to stir the shit, every time the referee stopped the game the fat bastard was up there, spouting in the referee’s ear. Needless to say the keeper was subject to chants of “Who ate all the pies?”, “Yooooou fat bastard!” and “Get back in your cage!”

Non-league football is so much different from the professional game. The style of play is far more aggressive, the players are not afraid to get into a scrap. They are also a lot harder. When they go down injured it’s because they’re generally hurt. You get a lot less diving, Chelsea’s Didier Drogba wouldn’t last five minutes.

There are no more home league games this season although Bath will be in the play offs and will play a leg at Twerton Park. Unless it clashes with a Leeds game I will certainly aim to attend.

    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.
