Monday 15th May.
I felt obliged to congratulate my work colleagues
who support Bradford City today. After all, they are still in the
Premier league following yesterday's fluke win over Liverpool while
we still languish in the Nationwide (more games, less money - sounds
better to me - not!).
I couldn't believe that they are having an open
top bus tour of the City centre in celebration. Celebration of what
for crying out loud? They festered in the bottom three almost all
season, and thanks to Wimbledon's ineptitude contrived to stave
off relegation at the last gasp.
At the end of the day they finished fourth bottom
and had a mass celebration outside the Town Hall! Oh ye of little
ambition, we came eighth, and by the time the players came back
onto the pitch to receive their accolade from the fans most people
were sitting at home watching Brookside.
Perhaps we should have held a tickertape parade
on Madison Avenue for our achievements, and what of those other
teams who also came fourth bottom in their respective leagues will
they be having open top bus tours? I think not! I'm sure that the
good people of West Bromwich felt that this season was one to forget,
and as for Cardiff, they finished fourth bottom and were relegated.
Is there no justice? Oh God I am really bitter and twisted.
You might know from my ranting that nothing has
happened in the HTFC department, although hopefully the Bradford
fans will quieten down a little now because they know that they
will be relegated next season, won't they?
