It has been over 2 hours since I got back to my flat, but I am still freezing cold.

I spent the evening watching Bath City beat Newport County in the Setanta Shield. This is normally a mediocre cup, but due to failings in other competitions this season, it has taken more significance. Therefore, I was pleased when City thrashed Newport 4-1.

Anything less than this rout would have made the whole evening a total waste of my time. It was bitterly cold and there were moments I wished I had stayed at home with beer and crisps, watching footy on TV. Instead, I was stood at Twerton Park, in Arctic-like conditions, without even a hot drink (the tea bar was closed).

I may still be cold, but I am happy with the result.

The same cannot be said for Newport…

Not only did they have to endure the freezing cold
Not only are they doing WORSE this season than Bath City
Not only did they get thrashed 4-1 tonight
Not only did they have to travel home – and pay to get across the Severn Bridge
BUT they are going home to Wales – a country, if it weren’t for England, classed as ‘third world’

It’s no wonder it all kicked off at the end when they asked their manager to go forth and multiply…

  • 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.
