It was another bad week for the Nap A as they fell to their third 9 – 4 defeat of the season against the wily Fox’s B. Not as bad a week as Andrew Mitchell’s, the Tory bully who tried to feather his nest with libel damages and ended up with burned fingers to the tune of £3M. this is the world according to the Tory B’stard. While most of us lose our temper and apologise accordingly, (if we are proper people), this wally has potentially lost his house for not admitting that he is an arrogant, self-important toerag who would not confess to referring to a fellow human being (even if it is Old Bill) as a pleb. The man’s crime was simply doing his job and not grovelling in the presence of a Government Minister with a bike in hand. I have seen many a Government Minister with bike in hand, but usually in the West End, not in Westminster.
The Brick A did themselves a favour with a good 9 – 4 win over the Maple and so avoided the wrath of Harry Coulter, as the most formidable captain in the league cannot have failed to raise a smile this week, especially when bending over.
Talking of formidable captains Mark Le Unpronounceable from the Penge Trades must have kept himself strangely quiet, unlike his loud-mouthed team, as they had a bye this week. Cab firms may be facing a lean Yuletide as a result, but the Penge boys are keeping their focus on top spot, not on local businesses out in the sticks.
In Div2, there was sadly a postponed game due to a bereavement at the Rising Sun, so no game for the Brock Soc A either.
But, the high-flying Cat Cyphers beat the game Brock Soc B by three clear legs at home to hold on to their 100% record this term. Fair play to the Cyphers, formerly the Livesey, for their start to the season, similar to a Southampton resurgence, but without the Dutch manager or the ‘We aren’t getting any credit’ mentality of the South coast ‘victims’.
The HGRC smashed the Catford CC over the boundary with an impressive 9 – 4 win and showed that however big your ‘blazing squad’ you can still get the team to gel. Take a look Manuel Pelligrini!
The Nap B, sadly lost again and have yet to secure a victory this season, but got 4 points against the Fox’s A. Still marooned at the bottom, they retain their enthusiasm and passion for the game (and the food) despite this. The Fox’s A won their second game of the season and have risen in the table as a result. Leicester City, their namesakes, are having a more torrid season. Manager Nigel Pearson aka dead man walking, is choosing to watch games from the stands, rather than from the dugout. I have to admit if I was him I would not want to watch it up close either. I would choose to watch home games in a Travelodge in Preston, crying under the duvet, if I was him…
Enjoy life, darts and, if not a designated driver, BEERS.
