I had a terrible night sleep last night; I was dreaming about Burridge, Burridge, Burridge and our player shortage nightmare, and it got mixed up with the New Orleans flooding and the American television show: Lost. Burridge are lost at sea, and if I may quote from that show, a line that is apt to our plight, 'the moth struggles to free himself from the cocoon, we could cut him loose now but he would perish, his struggle is nature's necessary way of making him stronger.'

Colin says: As things have been getting increasingly desperate I have found my boots out just in case, and raised the emergency level to Defcon 5.


Not sure if I'm fit enough for the Jan Molby role, maybe the Julian Dicks overweight and no pace

full back position may be more appropriate. If anyone has any contacts within the Paramedics,if they could be placed on standby near Burridge it would be appreciated.

Failing that, Matthew could create history as the youngest senior league player ever at 13 years and 5 days. I have text the elusive Phil ‘Marco Boogers’ Hingston, but am as yet awaiting a reply, however this is just the act of an increasingly desperate man. I have been inundated with texts from Michael telling me of various good players he knows at college who would be available but god only knows what we may end up with.

Might do just as well to launch a kidnapping spree around the park benches of Southampton in order to unearth a hidden talent or at least if that fails share their meths and cheap gutwrenching cider with them……

The shame of it all is that I work with a guy who is closely connected to Cadnam and rates them as “possibly the biggest shower to ever disgrace the name of Cadnam United” ………….

Colin; I think I've a plan: door to door sales.If I take a day off work...oh wait a minute...everyone else will be at work won't they. Cancel that one.

Emerson Marks said...

Wait, all is not lost. Ross is close to a short term solution; whereas I've contacted our potential Survey targets by text. After that forehand return, the ball is now in their court; Inow await to receive if indeed I haven't already hit another winner.

SONG FOR BURRIDGE

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

[trumpet]

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

Wait a minute, a game Saturday, whatever next! So much for the proposed mass gathering at St Mary's on Saturday, Oh well, We shall have to make enough noise for all of you absentees!

Mark Sanderson said...

It's okay Verbal, no need to go to St. Marys; least not for the visit of Plymouth Argyle. Why not bring your boots, and maybe we can arrange a game for you?

I have to say that im enjoying the banter between the two heavyweights that are Jonathon Ross and Barry Norman. Although JR has swung it for me with his impressive knowledge of the Twin Peaks script. The comparison with past plots and Burridge football was genius! Anyone remember the log lady?

Sir John Major said...

I'm sorry Verbal but the Log Lady is a mystery to me. I must confess that I always found Twin Peaks thrilling to watch but never had a clue what was actually going on.

Looking back (bringing back the blog)

I haven't posted here since 2012 – that’s five years of not blogging. The blog is/was about Burridge AFC, the football team I played f...
