I've been a bit AWOL from these parts lately so I thought I'd pop by with some
First though a couple of nuggets of randomness:
Liverpool (European champions, remember) were utter plop last night, weren't they?
Michael Ricketts actually scored a goal for Leeds Utd!
Also last night one scoreline in particular caused much mirth. I apologise, for I know some readers will probably cry like girls when they see it again.
Nottingham Forest 2 - 3 Macclesfield town
Thing is, I actually have quite a soft soft for Forest. Stems from the legend that was Cloughy & the fact that best mate supports them. Second to Elland Road, The City Ground is the stadium I have been to the most.
The beauty of this though is thus: because they are a friends team I can get untold amounts of pleasure from taking the piss! And come on that's one of the best things about footy, isn't it?
Especially when your team has inflicted the damage, Right Swiss?
That said, in the wake of saturday's home defeat at the hands of the mighty Scunthorpe I just haven't got the heart to tease him anymore.
So instead I had enormous amounts of fun at the expense of the only QPR fan I've ever known.
Fancy losing 3-0 to the cobblers!
(As he is the only one I've ever known, I have to wonder if they are all delusional or if it's just him. We've even got a 20 riding on who will finish highest this season. Easy money!)
And I've only just started to lay off on the 6-1 mauling my boys dished out to them last year!
Somewhere back at the beginning of this post, it was all supposed to lead neatly into teams that you quite like for no real good reason. Which hasn't happened, so let me lead messily into teams that you quite like for no real good reason.
I have a few dotted throughout the divisions.
The one club that I've always had a soft spot for though is Norwich City.
I've never known why, perhaps it's the kit.
It became carved in stone after they larrupped Bayern Munich on their own turf that time.
Jeremy Goss' goal? Blimey!
So am I alone or does anyone else have these little soft spots, & if so, who for?
