Burridge AFC 3 - 0 Waterlooville

Sunday 16th April
Burridge Rec

It was around 1:53pm amid the heavy guff of sport's liniment, that Burridge gaffer Maurice Hewlett announced; "This is a game I don't expect you to win." But, those regular Burridge Bloggers out there will know only too well, that Burridge are anything but predictable.

Soon to embark on his debut marathon in the city of London: Greg Baker inadvertently opened a long inquest between Waterlooville centre-halfs by calmly side footed the opening goal from the right of the penalty box. When Baker and Hewitt swapped flanks a second goal followed. Kristian Hewitt took full advantage of the wealth of space in front of him, shooting low past the keeper's right hand glove.

In the second period Waterlooville desperately tried to revive their flagging title ambitions - but Burridge defended resolutely. With minutes left on the clock, newly introduced substitute Jay Schwodler was sent clear and rolled the leather through the posts sealing a comprehensive team performance.

4-4-2: D.Hopkins, L.Sanderson, P.Dyke, K.Willsher, M.Sanderson, G.Baker, S.Burnet, R.Allan, K.Hewitt, B.Schwodler (J.Schwodler), R.Bryant. (Unused Subs: P.Andrews, A.Lovett)

Top performance guys, great end to the season, another case of what could have been this season, but lets enjoy this result for now!

Scotty B said...

Amen to that. Great performance lads but as Patches O'Houlahan said in the movie dodgeball "we need to get mad!"

Mark Sanderson said...

Yes continue our good run.
West Meon away this Sunday: drive to Bishops Waltham, left at Crown roundabout, then right at next big roundabout, follow road all the way to West Meon, (where you take a left into a housing estate).

No Dave Hopkins or Greg Baker this Sunday, but that still leaves us with 12 men. Let's get the result.

4th in the league!

white brian dean said...

Well played lads, you were totally in command. They looked very ordinary. The dizzy heights of fourth - top drawer!

Colin's empty packet of pork scratchings said...

Perhaps we need to re-evaluate our objectives: I think it's about time we were contesting the league title. That can come about next season. Please don't lose the 'oommphh' factor, we'll only get what we settle for.

fielder said...

it was ok...

fielder said...

ohhh, who am i kidding??!!

the best team performance i've seen for a while. nice to get one over on those ***** for once.

well done guys. nice to have a happy changing room after the game as well!

iceman said...

I must say i had a wide smile when i checked the league tables, only 4 points behind Waterlooville, lets keep this winning habit right to the end.

Mark Sanderson said...

Me, Jay and Luke are having our din-dins and watching the football, then I had an idea. I went upstairs and got my pencil case and made a chart. It's called Bryn watch: out of the last 9 days he's slept at number 21 once. You can see it on our noticeboard when you viist. But don't let that stop you coming to number 21 on Saturday night before we go out on Clare's birthday. Dave, remember your curfew. You're to be in bed at 11pm.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"I got my combativeness from my dad. One day when I was a kid I decided to bunk off school and hitchhike into town. It was a
disaster: the first person to stop to pick me up was my dad! He drove me straight to school and spanked my bottom in front of the whole class" - Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso.

PS I have a new email address: it is marksandy101@aol.com

fielder said...

i hate gattuso. i hate milan.
ronaldinho's the master man.

pass and move, shoot and score,
watching barca, never a bore.

the flair of their players, such a delight. cafu, kaka, out on the right.

can arsenal beat them? surely no chance. guess we'll see, in the STADE DE FRANCE.

everyone get on that bloody justgiving website and sponsor greg. PLEASE.

fielder said...

i know that cafu and kaka play for milan, but i like the sound of it that way.(before you have a heart attack mark).

iceman said...

Very impressive Lee, i didnt know you worked as a poet during the working week.

Barca v Arsenal final, should be a cracker, two best players in the world fighting it out for the ultimate prize (and i don't mean Puyol and Senderos).

New teams at training tonight?

Mark Sanderson said...

Well, I think we should leave that to the gaffer and his number two who are coming tonight.

fielder said...

i think we should keep them fairly similar to last week. we need the chance to get back some pride. you can have jay though, mark!

(only messing jay!)

Froudie said...

definately new teams at training, can't have the new gaffer see my team get whacked every week ! also my perm goes better with yellow than red

COME ON THE SPURS - i hope Arsenal get beat by spurs saturday and then don't even make the final

Mark Sanderson said...

Frenchman Ludovic Giuly scored for the Spanish against the Italians. But, I beleive he originates from Perpignan in France, which was part of Spain up 'til the seventeenth century. I could be getting mixed up with Lizarazu who is a French Basque, and played for Athletico Bilbao. A club without sponsor and who never buy non-basque players. They won back to back titles in '83 & '84, probably explaining why Howard Kendall tried his luck there in the late eighties.

fielder said...

very interesting mark.

regarding training, you can have froudie and jay.

Mark Sanderson said...

I propose we do the bleep test. We could run a book on who would win, or better still do a sweepstake for it.

fielder said...

yes! thats a great idea. i bet scotts got one. pre-season bleep test it is then.

Mark Sanderson said...

Did anyone notice Watford manager Adie Boothroyd's novel idea? After Monday's game sealed their play-off position, he got all his players practising penalties in front of the home crowd at Vicarage Road. Their own fans stayed behind for a litle while and were asked to boo and hiss and whatever else they could do to put their team off in preparation for a possible penalty shoot-out in the play offs.

froudie said...

oi fielder - i hope you're not grouping me with jay
i want to go with my mate mark reeves - we have an understanding (in the completely non-sexual sense)
i've got a copy of the bleep test if you want me to bring it (and the sit up blep test which is even more fun !)

Anonymous said...

Froudie, im disappointed in your lack of optimism at our team winning this week, also i have noticed the way yourself and Reeves pass to each other all the time, maybe you should not be seperated!

Froudie said...

anonymous i'm humbled by your response and would be honoured to reunite our team and avenge last weeks defeat, in the spirit of the allied team in escape to victory (can i be ossie ardiles ?)
bring them on !!

white brian deane said...

Hi all, i'm in doing some office based duties and can, for one day only, be at the cutting edge of burridge based wit and observation.

Entertain me.

Emerson Marks said...

Okay I have a question for you. Have you - as a plumber - stolen (due to hunger) food materials from a house you've worked in, to make a sandwich?

white brian deane said...

Never.

I'm a good plumber with good customer relations. I only consume customer food stuffs (including bacon sandwiches) when offered by said customer.

In relation to food, my best two situations included (1) a weeks free fish and chips and (2) a full english cooked breakfast once again for a week with full and unlimited access to tea, toast and homemade preserves.

fielder said...

someone (that will remain anonymous) once knew of someone (that will remain anonymous) getting caught searching his way through a ladies under-wear draw, while on plumbing duties.

paul, have you ever been caught out, or indeed, if you're sneaky enough, found yourself in any similar circumstances?

fielder said...

on another note.

just think, ronaldinho could end up with the 'fifa' world player of the year award, winning la liga with barcalona, the champions league with barcalona and the world cup with brazil. all in the same season.

incredible.

white brian deane said...

Hey! I am white brian deane, who is this Paul you speak of?

Never, although i have heard lots of stories but i'm not prepared to put them on the interweb.

Enough from me, have any of you office bods been propositioned in the workplace?

Mark Sanderson said...

No, not ever. Actually that counts for outside the workplace as well.

white brian deane said...

I've seen you in action, your quite the Don Juan when you want to be, for example The Beach nightclub circa 1998 if memory serves.

Mark Sanderson said...

Good grief. That's so long ago, I thought I'd just read it in the old testament as a result of my Roman Catholic schooling. Just think: Bill Clinton was still US president, Tony Blair was enjoying his first year in office and Dene and Kev had yet to meet.

white brian deane said...

Whitfield still at the helm, a blue and white hooped kit that flatered no one and division four football. We still all had our boyish good looks and a good night out consisted of siting in McDonalds car park after McClusky's had sent us on our way.

Life is so much better now.

iceman said...

1998, what a year! Definately one of the best holidays i've been on that year. It was so good, that i couldnt even begin to pick the best moments from it.

In relation to Sandy and his Don Juan aura, who remembers him chatting that bird up in the Milennium club (Faliraki '99) whilst brutally giving his whisky a good talking too? Great memories!

Also i was to meet Denee later on that year in question, and the rest in history as they say!

Gatso Terrorist said...

i have had the misfortune to work with this Mark Sanderson you so often speak off, talking of being propositioned, i saw with him leant on the water cool, twiddling what can only be described as levers, or maybe something else in his mind!

Did anyone notice that the linesman on the far side had an erection the entire first half?

I think you should moderate your blog

My classical music website had a repeat blogger writing about the wonders of runny dog shit and pissed soaked rubber pants.

It was very annoying.

Looking back (bringing back the blog)
