Points back to nothing
© Alex Saynor 2014
This recounts an odd experience in which I happened to drive alongside Swansea fans to a Fulham home game (29/12/12) as I was travelling back from visiting family in South Wales.
I couldn’t work out if it was the experience of a home or away fan, particularly as we tend to lose at home to Swansea.
Loyalty points expire after 3 years, apparently- harsh.

Too right Kev on both counts VAR and missed chances….!
Dilemna for Gareth…
….will he be bold and sacrifice Sterling for Rashford …or worry about Sterling’s confidence being dented even though he never scores for Ingerland and keeps running into dead ends….no time for that..
.and RLC in for Deli Alley Pally….time for bravery..
nice one C
See in context

Didn’t know Hazel O’Connor will be at the Godiva festival. Her late mother lived just a mile from where I live. Hazel is a proud Cov Kid and loves coming back home. So I’ll be there to watch her !

Supporting Cov City for decades and watching England too has made me cynical and negative. But keep it to yourself my club is on the way up, and secretly I like England giving youth a chance. And I’ve put an England flag up,the only one I can see flying at the moment on our street. So I am trying !
