Montpellier sounds French, as does the phrase deja vu, so it was no
surprise to the locals at Badsey that Montpellier's match last Saturday was
called-off due to a waterlogged pitch. Just a few drops of that most English
of weather's can turn this particular patch of ground into a quagmire. Last
season there were no matches played there for almost two months.
How many times has your enjoyment of a local football match been spoiled by the antics of what is best described as a 'balding bigot'. These '60 somethings' spend most of the match 'working the touchline'. Wearing their club colours, ( usually a tracksuit, woolly hat and football boots,) they 'follow the play', generally from 10 yards inside the touchline, giving advice to all and sundry. This is generally of no constructive use, nor warranted. They are not helpful to their own team, and the sooner the teams see this, then the sooner they can be booted out of the game. Alveston, who visited Badsey Rangers recently, have a good example of one of these 'sideline spoilers'. He was an irritation to all those around him.

CAN I HAVE MY
BOOK BACK, PLEASE?
Brian Smith, is asking anyone who bought his first book of poetry, "From
Down Sands Lane to Cuckoo Bridge" if they would like to sell it back to
him for the original purchase price of £5.
