When Bath City got drawn against Gloucester City in the FA Trophy, I was expecting big things. Bath are known as The Romans, whereas Gloucester’s nickname is The Tigers. If Russell Crowe has taught me anything, it’s that battles involving Romans and tigers are epic.

Sadly, the match did not live up to the Oscar winning film, Gladiator – in fact it was more like Jaws 3 in terms of quality. Tony the Tiger would call it anything but “Grrrrreat!”.

The match finished 0-0, which is almost as bad as losing 7-1 to East Thurrock. Not only did I have to endure 90 minutes of shit and pay £12 for the privilege, but as this is the Trophy, a draw means a replay must be played on Tuesday night – another £12 I’ll have to fork out and if the match is anything like today, another 90 minutes of my life wasted. It could be even longer, as extra time and penalties could potentially be played, although if that transpires, I’ll probably chop my own ears off and gouge my eyes out.

  • 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.
