Today’s one-word match report is:

I noticed yesterday you wrote a short piece in The Observer about the Watford game. The only reason I read this interesting snippet was because a friend of a friend bought the paper round yesterday, normally I don’t read The Observer. Anyway, I was wondering if there was any chance of you posting these little reviews/previews (if we’re playing Sunday/Monday) on BHaPPY at any point? However I do understand the days of BSaD like reports/previews are now behind us!

If you decide against or physically can’t post these reviews , then I may get off my sorry arse and buy The Observer/change my old newspaper habits! (The Observer is probably better than the Telegraph anyway!).


P.S a good match report would be: Inevitable

The form with the Observer is that they ring me at about 6pm after each game for comment and I give them stuff over the phone. Invariably, if we are at home, this call arrives when I’ve reached the bar in the Estcourt and home or away it’ll have been entirely forgotten catching me unprepared.

Thus, not only do I not have the stuff written down, it’s not always terribly coherently thought through anyway, and probably has to be massaged considerably by the Observer’s sub-editors to make any sense at all…

1. Simon Marchant – 15/10/2006
It’s Simon in Oz (Sydney actually) here. I’m a bit weary after listening to the Arsenal misfortune until 2am last night, but thought that all the BHaPPYers may be interested to learn that I have just watched Melbourne V Adelaide in our new(ish) Australian league. ‘Twas a fine game and enlivend by an excellent touchline stoush between the very, very lovable Kevin Muscat (yes, that Kevin Muscat – the Budhist peace campaingner) and the Adelaide coach, John Kosmina. It was redolent of the fine coming together of Fitz Hall and Aidy at the Vic last season. Sadly the other 21 players remained, for the most part, uninvolved, so no repaeat of Dori’s’ excellent evisceration of the hapless Palace men.
More disturbing co-incidences can be gleaned form England’s horrible effort against Croatia this week. Having watched the train wreck on Aussie TV just now it occured to me that Croatia have fixed the goalmouths. Australia’s pulsating 2-2 draw with the Zagreb men at Germany ‘06 (from which Aus qualified for round 2) featured a ‘freak’ goal when the ball bounced over Aussie’s hapless keeper’s hands when he was fielding an innocuous soft shot.
MEMO TO NEXT CROATIA OPPONENT: Get Geoff Boycott to pat down the penalty area with his bat
As for Charlton next week………WIN.
Yours aye,
