It Finally Happened, We Witnessed a Bantams Victory

I still can not quite believe it, but after two years I was finally there in person to see the mighty bantams pull off a victory. as usual it was not plain sailing, a bright start made way to dull mediocrity in the first half, one city effort being pushed on to the crossbar, and Evans making the Wrexham goalie earn his keep. Stand out again was big Dave N'Bungo, Omar Daly was sprightly down the flanks, and Paul Evans was solid in the centre of midfield, but we were sorely in need of a goal. Big Baz Conlon faded badly, but not long into the second half a goal scramble saw the ball break to Johnson who rifled the ball home from distance. All seemed gravy, but this is city, and they could have been two down before the sheep shaggers hit the inevitable equaliser. The game became scrappy and looked to be heading for stalemate when an inspired substitution earned the Bantams all three points. The little heralded Luke Medley came on for Big Baz, and with nearly eighty minutes played scored a goal for the ages from wide out left, a score worthy of settling any contest. It was off to the Beehive for a few Erdingers to celebrate, although the Elster came and wrestled me into the vehicle at around half seven. The boy was last seen entering the Travellers at Duckworth Lane, so god knows hour he got home, and Mossy wobbled off to his flat at Listers. This posting would have been on earlier, but I was a Godfather at a Christening yesterday, so was again asleep on the sofa for ten o'clock. That afternoon drinking sneaks up on you when you stop. Got drunk in the Dog and Gun at Oxenhope, £2.80!! for a pint of Carlsberg, so I left the Starpromen alone. The weather geezer from Look North was in there. He's a bit of a short arse.

Big Bazza,
nice lad, tries his hardest, looks the spit of McEuro (and has the same boots) but we have to be honest....he was dog sh*te on Saturday. We still love him tho!

And what a goal!! young lad on his debut...Just like watching Brazil.

Mercenary...David Prutton, that guys name. He'll do ok for the arse lickers in white..
