...I had the misfortune to be at Upton Park last night to see my beloved West Ham get tonked by 3rd from bottom Stoke City 0-1. After seeing that performance I can assure all the regulars at Stonebridge Road that in comparison, we have been treated to a veritable feast of skillful footy by the Fleet and if, just if, we could have won against County and then get drawn against the Hammers, we would have almost been guaranteed a fourth round tie. Think of the worst expletive that can be preceeded with 'utter' and you've summed it up. Think about Northwhich away and double it!! And then double it again!!! It was sh*t!!!
Honestly, Carrick's talking about getting his England career up & running but on last night's showing, he wouldn't make it into the Fleet reserve side and Mullins wouldn't have even made the bench!!! Replace Harewood & Deane with Howarth & Evans and they would have had a decent front line!
I will certainly think again if I ever intend to critise G&NFC on a poor performance.
Unfortunately I will finish work too late to make it to Burton on Saturday so I've already committed myself to WHU v Sunderland.
G&NFC and West Ham......... I've got to be some sort of masochist.....
