I was only able to follow today’s Scunthorpe United game against Oldham on the BBC website, by following the scoreline, but even then it seems to have been a bloodbath. Fucking hell! Scunthorpe had seven men booked and another two sent off. Oldham scored an own-goal.
Scun held out to the bitter end, but finally , on the 90th minute, Oldham knocked in the equaliser. Final score, one-all.
Imagine it. What kind of horrible fuck-you up-your-arse mud-all-over-everybody game must it have been. Two Scunthorpe players sent off with half an hour to play? Imagine that!
Holy shit, it can only have been hand-to-hand combat. It’s hardly surprising that seven Scuns got carded. The only thing I’m wondering about now is how the suspensions will affect the next few games. I haven’t had a chance to review the fixtures yet but I’ll come back later with an assessment. I know you’re agog with worry.
Tomorrow, Munster face Bourgoin in the Real Football. It seems Bourgoin have fielded a full team for a change. A lot of our guys have gone to Geneva in support, including QJS, but I intend to support from Jerry Flannery’s father’s pub. (Also known as Jerry Flannery).
