|Ivan Toney - Why All The Hype ?|
at 14:41 12 Jan 2022
Having now seen him live, I must say, I wasn't impressed and don't get all the hype surrounding him.
I'm sure he can be good on his day, but I thought he, like the rest of the Brentford team, were made to look very poor by us last night.
He totally miscued and didn't even connect with his only chance in the first half last night, got booked, dived around a bit, had a poor first touch many times, took a poor quick free kick, got frustrated, gave away a stupid free kick that could have earned him a 2nd yellow and finally had an actual shot near the end of the 2nd half.
I'm sure many strikers have such off days, but perhaps Brentford should have played us in December when Toney still had Covid !!
Also Brentford are THE team when it comes to stealing yardage with throw ins !! Some they took last night were 3 of those grass strips further up the pitch than where the ball went off - that is 18 yards FFS !!
When the fan in the front row of the Itchen acrobatically kicked the ball, the resulting throw in was taken so far away from him it was ridiculous !!
Oh well, never mind, we won and at least the ref let the game flow most of the time.
|Skates Only Draw Despite All The Odds In Their Favour|
at 01:47 4 Jan 2022
Just seen that they only managed a 0-0 draw away to Cambridge.
What's so strange about that you may ask yourself ?
Well, Cambridge had a man sent off after 60 minutes, but the Skates still couldn't score in that last half an hour.
So the officials decided to play 28 (Twenty Eight) minutes of injury time !! They shouldn't have bothered, as the Skates still couldn't score and it finished 0-0 !!
Turns out someone feinted in the crowd, which added on some extra minutes !! :-)
The fan was fine and is probably still laughing at the fact his team held on for so long and got a point against all the odds !!
|Happy Birthday Franny Benali|

Many Happy Returns Franny
Caught a piece about his charity work on some Sky football programme late last night - which also had a feature on Pogatetz and Paul Ince. Only 10 mins on Franny, but worth watching if you can find it.
Franny was my cousin's favourite player and it still bugs him that he was on holiday when he scored his one and only Saints goal (at the right end) and of course I rubbed it in big time and even bought the T-Shirt.
|ST Holders - Have You All Received Your Pin Badges ?|
at 17:23 16 Dec 2021
I hate to think how much it has cost the club to produce them, package them and then mail them out ?
I guess they are the ones that we should have got as part of our new ST Welcome Packs at the start of the season.
Not the best design either. As it is to commemorate 20 years at SMS, you would have thought the badge would actually be of the stadium ?
