Yesterday afternoon, Bath City’s FA Cup dream was shattered after being beaten 2-1 by Forest Green Rovers. Over 3,000 fans packed into Twerton Park, the queue at the turnstiles stretching down the high street. It was like being in the Football League.

I don’t think the performance was as good as that of the Grimsby game. The spirit was not there. Saying that, the City players performed very well and bowed out gracefully. Still disappointed a day on, but we now have to look to the league.

My other team, Leeds United, are still in the cup and play their game this afternoon (as I type, they kick off in 25 minutes). Their match against non-league Kettering Town is televised, which will bring back memories of the defeat to Histon last season, where the Not-so Mighty Whites lost to a goal scored by a postman (remember this).

With his holiness, Saint Simon Grayson in charge, Leeds are a different team this season, who I am convinced will win, no matter how many butchers, bakers and candlestick makers Kettering may have in their ranks.

  • 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.
