Happy New Year. Sorry for the lack of a December edition of these post dated musings, but I just got too carried away with the football!
View from the cemetery
A win, a win at last! And against a team who had just won three off the belt. When the woodwork was rattled twice I thought it was going to be the same old story but no, a good cross, a good header, ten minutes scary defending and there you are, three points, and fifty quid for half a 'Performance of the Week' award because Whitley Bay feel sorry for us. Not sure we should be happy about that, but we'll have the money thanks.
George Kinnell, I don’t think this was in the fat lad's plans!
Rock bottom, and gazing up the league. In some ways it wouldn’t be so bad if we were getting murdered every week, but it seems like it’s always the same old story, last minute screamer, or header from needlessly conceded corner, takes points away to somewhere murky in the backwaters of the North East, while assorted traveling fans celebrate in the clubhouse. Hard to take, but at least the takings are up.
Slight delay with this month’s view, just catching me breath you know after last month…
Tremendous turn out for Alan Thompson’s game, but the late equaliser for the Colliery told a tale, Then, 8-0 and 5-2 defeats, only saw the second one myself obviously, but it looks like we might have a crisis at the back, then two clean sheets and a performance of the week award, I’m getting confused! And that was only the first couple of weeks.
Not long to go now! Ten days to the first league game at Ryton. The friendlies all following the same path: decent performances, but leaking late equalisers. No doubt Steve and Karl will be hoping to put that right by the real thing.
July is the worst month of the year for SRCA fans, and all football fans. No football apart from the last few World Cup games, and nowt to see at Meadow Park except the Boss moving the sprinkler every now and then. At least from back here you can’t see the ‘orrible clubhouse. And in July you are always joint top.
