Football is a funny game – it can be totally unpredictable. Take for example Team Bath. Their squad not only receives sponsorship, but also money from the UK taxpayer, enabling their players to train every day, effectively making them fulltime professionals.

With that in mind, you would expect them to succeed in a league where all their rival teams are made up of part time players who make a living from plumbing, teaching and various other everyday trades.

Even though the university associated Team Bath have all that backing, they still finished second in the league to the mighty Bath City, and today lost the play off final to Maidenhead United – in their home ground (well Bath City’s).

I went down to Twerton Park this afternoon to cheer on Maidenhead, hoping and praying that they would win and condemn the “students” to another year in the British Gas Business League. I was not disappointed. On a beautiful afternoon, Maidenhead United taught the wannabe players a lesson in football. The game finished 1-0, but Team Tax were well and truly beaten.

At full time, Maidenhead and Bath City fans celebrated in unison on the pitch, while Team Bath players slumped off to the changing rooms to eat Pot Noodles (or whatever students have nowadays). I happily shook the hands of various Maidenhead fans, who thanked me for the support and rightly pointed out that we’ll meet again next year – unlike Team Bath.

Well done Maidenhead! See you next season!

Team Bath – enjoy another season in the Mickey Mouse league. Pity for you that you are not allowed to re-sit the final – you were rubbish! :o)

  • 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.
