On it’s sinking in last night.

Up there for a jaunt
Or a stroll along the beach?

Would Bent’s shot
Have missed the net?

Notes

S’Land v L’pool. A goal like that shouldn’t and wouldn’t be allowed to stand in a kick about in the street let alone a proper match. That it’s even up for debate just goes to show how bad our referees and what’s worse the people who govern them are. Just close ranks boys and this’ll all go away in time.

Yeah right! Call it a draw or replay the match. Pure farce, the rules even say it should be a drop ball, but when did a referee take any notice of the rules, and why should they? They made them up, an interesting phrase that.

Crowning a great week for Steve Bruce, who must have had a fortune on with his bookie that David Beckham would be voted Man ot Match at Wembley the other night, three gifted points from this game, why I’d wager he even won The National Lottery last night! Well they say these things have a habit of happening in threes.

Great talking point this.

Peace.

Kev.
