21st Feb 2006 - BCII vs. Debenhams
BCII 4-2 Debenhams
It was so very
nearly a perfect night …….
As a result of
some heavy traffic on the M1, we’ll pick up the match action midway through the
first half, with the scores level at 0-0.
relaxed and confident. The line sees Ritchie A. in goal, Justin and Daz at the
back (Biggsio still out ‘injured’ ….), Rogers and Danny in the middle and Ben up
front. On the packed bench sat BC1 regulars Sean, Gaz, Disco and Spooney plus
possession – but despite the effort and free flowing footie, cannot quite create
an opportunity … until Danny squares a ball from the right to Daz, only for
Rogers to step in, collect, shimmy past the defender and coolly plant the ball
into the far corner.
A wonderful goal
from the in form captain and a few moments later Sean steered the ball wide to
Danny, who, unmarked on the edge of the area, beat the keeper at close range to
notch his 13th goal of the season.
Half time and
BC2 led 2-0.
started and despite some excellent goalkeeping from Ritchie A., making his 100th
start for the Club, when a loose ball was played through the centre, a terrible
lack of co-ordination, allowed the ball to roll past the defence to the unmarked
Debenhams striker, leaving Ritchie helpless as they pulled one back.
re-grouped to score the goal of the night.
excellent passing, and the whole team involved saw the ball worked wide to
Danny, knocked inside to Rogers, a little flick out wide to Sean (brought on for
Ben at the end of the first half), who was able to steady himself and place the
ball (with pinpoint accuracy) low and hard into the net off the far post.
Mid way through
the second half, further changes were made and Bunky’s again got caught making
substitutions (when will they learn) and with the team is disarray, a shot from
the left saw Ritchie make another fine save but Daz turn the loose ball into his
own net. For an own goal.
parity shortly afterwards, however, with his second of the night and 15th
of the season.
And then the
night seemed to get better, plenty of players into the bar afterwards to watch
the mighty Arsenal crush Real Madrid in their own back yard, a cheer as the
result from the Shenley/Argash clash was announced – somehow, Argash coming back
from 2-0 down to steal a 3-2 victory …. but alas, it took a dramatic turn for
unprecedented move, Spooney appears to have tried to create a division within
the club – not only did Mr. Moss, Mr. Biggs and Mr. Armstrong stand apart – they
bought their OWN ROUND OF DRINKS !!!!
Clocking up the
Hall of Shame penalty points afterwards was a difficult job – and we’re still
not sure we’ve captured them all … check the scores when released but it’s going
to be hard to top this lot;
Buying their own
Not buying drinks for everyone else
No food ordered
Stealing money from the Club afterwards
Bringing the Club into disrepute
It may well be
that we need to hold an emergency meeting of the club to properly address this
severe breach of club etiquette. More to follow as the story unfolds.
And finally, so
that we don’t end on such a sour note, we would like to say hello to our newest
reader – welcome, Miss Cindy J. of Memphis, TN.
Below follows those anonymous one-liners!
"Unfortunately the actions of the many are
often overshadowed by the actions of the few. Shocking behaviour tonight,
causing the evening to go down in Bunky's history as a real dark day. Match
was a corker though."
"What the hell is going on? A
great night on the pitch, them 3 renegades try to undo 15 years of friendship in
one move, the worst moment in BC history!"
"Good game of footy, BCII seem to
know what to do. Nice relaxed footy gets the goals flowing"
