One Nil To The Cockney Boys

We opened our account for the season with a 1-0 win away to Birmingham thanks to a Mark Noble penalty. It could easily have been more and certainly should have been 2 with on debut Dyer not putting away a gilt edged chance in the last few minutes.

Our line-up was Green, McCartney, Ferdinand, Upson, Spector, Etherington, Noble, Mullins, Dyer, Zamora, Bellamy. When Gabbidon came on for Spector later on it gave us an all British line-up.

I won't give full ratings but I thought Noble was superb. Mullins & Upson were both guilty of turning it over at times. As was Dyer tho he was quite lively on debut. Green was super safe when called upon.

Somehow the fantasy league bonus 3-2-1 votes went to Ridgewell , O'Connor (what an ugly bogan he is) and all we managed to sneak in was Green for 1 pt. If Noble wasn't best on ground, I'm not here!

The penalty to me looked clear cut. Bellamy got a touch of the ball, the keeper didn't and brought Bellamy down. Doesn't matter where in the box it occurred, that's a penalty all day long. We are now a team with loads of speed and I'm sure this won't be our last penalty for the season.

During the interviews afterwards, Bruce did nothing but complain. He bitched and moaned about the penalty. He bitched and moaned about us not playing during the week when they had to. Tosser.

Seperated at Birth?
