Season 4 Game 41 (28 Feb – 1 Mar)

THE ‘Tell Me, Anton Chigurh, To Love Yourself’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

Barney:
‘Hurst scores for Guiseley, do they think it’s all over?’
Chris: <keeping the trains safe midweek>
Howard:  ‘Parrett scores for Wimbledon, Parrett scores for Wimbledon’

The Dread Hand Of BarneyThe Dread Hand of Barney
Had its theoretical nose put out of joint the other day after it failed to gain a place on the local WI board. Because of this, our associate is turning its hand (ha!) towards aiding an alternative Women’s Institute, the maximum security prison up the road.
Such activity is clearly good for the spirits as Darren Bent at Derby County, Alex Jones at Bradford City, and Chris Porter at Colchester United all blanked.

It Dont Mean NuthinIt Don’t Mean Nuthin’
Aston Villa have been chucking money around like a bored Barney on tilt at the bandits [EDIT: anyone understand that??]. One of these signings was Johnathan Kodjia from Bristol City for £12m, who scored against his erstwhile paymasters midweek. Bristol City don’t miss him at all. Oh no, not at all.

Glenn & ChrisDiamond Lights
Sean Dickson, late of The Soup Dragons and The Hi-Fidelity, has been pretty quiet recently, turns out he’s a midfielder at Stirling and he scored the winner against Elgin on Tuesday.

Darwinism In ActionDarwinism In Action
Stevenage are on a fine run of form which has seen them rise to 7th in Division Two. Leyton Orient aren’t and are 23rd. Law of Natural Selection further underlined by subsequent 4-1 home success at Broadhall Way.

Barney
– called Bromley v Braintree Town at 0-2 on 33 min – Finished: 0-5 – GUB!
Howard
– called Clyde v Montrose called at 0-2 on 45 min – Finished: 0-3 – FAILED!
Chris
– called Cambridge United v Doncaster Rovers at 0-2 on 43 min – Finished: 2-3 – FAILED!

Old SchoolOld School
George Williams at MK Dons netted against Bradford at not called Valley Parade. Doubtless Williams and his colleagues will be steeling themselves for their next game at Millwall, led by the fearsome Terry Hurlock and long-serving defender Keith ‘Rhino’ Stevens.
