1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Oh how to report –
on a match unseen
A game of import
on a vale so green

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 FA Cup stalwarts
up against the Saints
All the magic of Hogwarts
yet where exit taints

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But why my inattention –
no knowledge of score?
What was the prevention
to counting roar?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Surrounded by beauties
and broken recording device
On entertaining duties
serving Bolly and brown rice *

that we posted five
And so can discount
Saints’ opening drive

new boy Ba
So we’re giving it large
to our new star!



FA Cup, 3rd round, 7th January 2013

And the draw throws up a potential local derby, one we haven’t had for many, many years…..
Brentford vs Chelsea

The Bees have to beat Southend first, in their replay.

*Keano’s gonna love me!!!!
And poetic licence : Tattinger doesn’t scan as well as Bolly !!!! Either way – it wasn’t mine!!!

Match facts:

Southampton took the lead through Rodgriguez.
Then Chelsea scored (without reply), via….
Demba Ba
Victor Moses
Branislav Ivanovic
Demba Ba
Frank Lampard (pen)

Lamps is now Chelsea’s joint second-highest goal-scorer alongside Kerry Dixon, with 193 goals for the Blues.
Demba Ba scores twice on his debut, signed at the start of the week from Newcastle.
