So, who’s in?
I’ve forgotten Paul’s Pink’n’Blues on the Booze so is there a preferred meeting point?
I can't make this one. If anyone is going, please take some snaps for the Buzz report!
I'm aiming for the 1122 train off Paddington due at Evesham around 1320, although I may be an hour earlier if I get everything else done in time.
I think there were two pubs I fancied but can't remember the names and will need to check when I get home. The ground looks around a mile and a half from the station and town centre.
Driving from basically Wales. See you at the ground probably
I can't make this game. Have a good trip everyone!
1122 out of London is carnage, standing room only luckily I was early enough to bag a window seat.
Couldn't find my pub info as I've just moved house and haven't unpacked everything. The Trumpet on Merstow Green sounds promising and it's on the main road to the ground.
Big Mike Onivwigun is back and debuts for Thompson and Rich-Baghuelou (I think).
Presumably Onovwigun plays at the back with Chambers, Okuonghae and Taylor all injured. Surprised Ming doesn't get into that XI.
It's certainly a little light on the defensive side.
No Kargbo or May either. That's threadbare to say the least!
3-4-1-2 formation: Edwards - Baghuelou, Toure, Onovwigun - Cook, Vose, Ferguson, Green - Clunis - Thompson, Akinyemi.
1-0 Thompson 32 minutes.
Up the Hamlet!
You got a mention on our FGR commentary as it's Radio Glos, our usual commentator pronounced you a good side.
We got turned down for a penalty, the worst decision I have seen on a football pitch.
Snatched a draw from the jaws of victory eh?
A draw that felt like a defeat.
Obvious penalty denied, but how many points have we thrown away this season with piss-weak defending and/or absence of concentration in the last 20 minutes of the game?
I’m no expert - in fact I barely know what I’m talking about - but doesn’t this mainly come down to on field leadership?
I'd have settled for that result beforehand with the makeshift defence we fielded, but ultimately that's two points dropped. We were given a free kick inches outside the box for a foul on Clunis that was clearly 4 or 5 feet inside, we wasted a couple of good chances to put the game to bed while we were a goal in front for an hour. The equaliser was all too typical, lost the ball on the halfway line and although two or three people got a foot on the ball after that no one managed to break up the counter attack decisively before a forward converted with Edwards exposed. Even after that we nearly snatched victory at the death when a curling shot from the edge of the box bypassed a ruck of players and smacked against the face of the post.
That was very disappointing, may not have been the greatest performance but we worked hard to get ourselves into a winning position, were then denied a clear penalty which would have put that game to bed.
I know we fell asleep for their equaliser but poor officiating once again cost us.
On to Boxing Day and finally a HOME game!
