  • 7 hour round trip to deepest Essex
  • Absolutely freezing weather
  • Numb hands after filming the game
  • Only Magners or Stella to drink
  • Only dog burgers and plastic sausages to eat
  • Shit ground, no fans
  • Terrible performance
  • Thurrock 1-0 Bath City

I also had a rather bizarre encounter with a set of Thurrock fans…

Firstly, some old fan approached me and started moaning about how it took him an hour to get out of Bath when he came to Twerton Park last year. It was almost as if he was looking for an apology from me!

On the way out of the ground, another Thurrock fan came over. He muttered something in an inaudible Essex accent, I just nodded and said “yes”. Mark, a fellow City fan was able to communicate with the being. Turns out the conversation went as follows

Essex man: “You have a long journey home.”
Mark: “Yeah, I’m not looking forward to it”
Essex man: “Well we had to do it when we came to see you!”

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise on behalf of God for making the county of Essex so far away from Somerset, and causing great inconvenience e to the great supporters of Thurrock FC. If I had my way though, I would move Essex even further east… into the sea.

  • 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.
