Why is it that my well-loved clubs, Bath City and Leeds United, never manage to both win on the same day? This season, I am yet to have the joys of celebrating a duo of football victories.

I now believe something strange and unexplained is linking my teams…

Take today for example. Bath City are playing St. Albans. 1-0 up at half time and cruising. I check the score from Leeds to find they are drawing 0-0 with Walsall.

Shortly into the second half of the City game, I check the Leeds score. To my joy, I see Leeds are wining 1-0. Within minutes of learning this news, St. Albans equalise. I then hear that Leeds are 2-0 up; only to see Bath totally lose the plot and concede a second goal, winning the game for St. Albans.

Something strange is going on….

Yes, I am aware that both my teams won on 27th September and 21st October BUT on both these dates, Bath City were playing in the FA and Somerset Cup; therefore I believe my theory only applies when both teams are playing league games.
I’m hoping to jinx this theory, by both of my clubs winning next week. It could, however, go the other way with City and Leeds both losing :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.
