As a self-deprecating (pre not fe) kinda guy, it really burns having to write up a match report and give myself the MOTM award. Reminds me of writing up a load of guff in the compulsory 'record of achievement' we were all made to churn out when leaving primary school. For those of you who don't recall, this was like a little version of the book Eamonn Andrews (or later Michael Aspel) would read from in 'This is your life', except written by a 10 year old about themselves, this match report will likely be no better.
Opposition was GLA-cticos this week, and we ran riot against them in the first half and then lost the second half one nil. Starting line-up:
John F&P Ringer / Stu / Latch / Charlie
Jnr / Beardsley (our Tom) / Punt / Miguel F&P Ringer
Zola / Sheedy
That's right, Sheedy up top. What a fantastic call that turned out to be from manager Stu. BOC got off to a flier, with Latch and Stu marshalling the back line and the Punt / Beardsley combo running the midfield. Jordan opened the scoring after pulling down a lofted ball from Punt, juggling past a couple of GLA defenders and finding the bottom corner left footed. Great goal. What an assist from Punter too (or was it John?), a ronseal punt forward for Jordan to chase - 'get after that you nippy little shit' he might have said, but didn't. A la Teddy Sherringham, a lack of pace needn't be a hindrance up top, as the great Sheedy was demonstrating. He found Jnr a couple of times and the littlest Hoff-oh was on target shortly after Jordan's opener having been played through sublimely by star man Sheedy. Goals are goals you pricks as we well know, but this was a well taken one, hit on the bounce low into the corner from an angle at the edge of the box. Don't-call-me-Junior then had a brace early doors, converting at close range from Miguel square ball across the 6 yard box. Total GAGYP mis-control tap in, nice one. The first of Sheedy's two goals was provided by Miguel who swung in a corner to the near post for Sheedy to nod in. Latch made the fifth BOC goal of the first half pulling the ball square for good ol' me to side foot home from six yards. What a player. Both Sheedy and Junior were in the hunt for a hat-trick, but Ben moving back to right-back out the dampeners on that. Sheedy was charitably left up top by Stu but failed to bag the third.
Well what else is there to say? Me me me me me me me me me.
Also GLA scored a goal. Can't really remember it though as I didn't feature.
9 in the pub, including wor Jackie, great night as always. Steve W threatening to return soon so you won't have to put up with this nonsense as the only post-match BOC communiqué for too much longer.
