BURRIDGE 1 - 3 CAPITAL

Burridge went down to their first league defeat of the season against a buoyant Capital side. Perhaps yours truly should have known how the Saturday afternoon was going to pan out when inadvertently walking in on Capital’s manager in the process of evacuating his bowls – not a pretty sight and it got worse.


Burridge went into the game yet to concede a league goal, but if it wasn’t for their goalkeeper Sam Schwodler and his keen reflexes the loss could have been even more comprehensive. After going in at half-time two-nil down, Burridge began the second half at least suggesting that a come back could occur; but Capital’s third goal vaporised such hopes.


The only high point for Burridge came when Ben Hutton tried his luck from the sort of long range better suited to a nine-iron. Capital’s goalkeeper looked on with the wide eyed astonishment of someone catching sight of a U.F.O - not a football. The ball returned from orbit crashing against the cross bar, Bryn Schwodler did what all good forwards should and followed up to give Burridge consolation.


The post match analysis within the home dressing room produced words of frustration and disappointment, scattered around like the errant passes that preceded them on the field of play. Their punishment comes in the form of time; they must wait seven whole days until the next fixture and the opportunity to atone for this most unsatisfactory result, and perhaps hope to discover who the real Burridge team are: inconsistent pretenders or battle hardened challengers – at the moment the jury is still out.


4-3-3: S.Schwodler, L.Sanderson, K.Willsher, M.Birks, J.Schwodler, G.Baker (S.Froud), M.Reeves, B.Hutton, J.Hewitt (J.Newman), P.Andrews (L.Fielder), B.Schwodler Unused sub: M.Sanderson

The first half was not good enough considering our previous two performances.Like I said Saturday you have got to be up for it right from the first whistle we where two nil down after ten minutes.The second half was a lot better and with a bit of luck could have snatched a draw.I will have to shoulder some of the blame for possibly underestimating their ability.They had lost there first two previous outings but I have since heard that they recently signed a couple of new strikers which certainly showed on the day.I think that this league will be beween 3-4 sides lets make sure we are one of them.Should be able to wear the new red kit this weekend against Hythe Aztecs at home.See you all Wednesday night at Burridge.The gaffer

As captain for the game, i will hold my hands up and say that my performance was below par, i am very disappointed with the performance and result but lets make sure we bounce back, we all know we can play 100% better than that!

froudie said...

i think the result shows that we need to approach every game with the same attitude and not get carried away after good results against poor teams.
we have the potential to do very well in this league but we still have to beat what's in front of us.
speaking for myself - i think improved fitness wouldn't go amiss but that's up to us

Dykey said...

well hythe this week and they beat capital last week 1 -0 so should be tougher then we thought.

Things is to look forward to the next game with smiles on our faces knowing that as a team we can do well this year.

Well done kev for holding ya hands but but put them down again as you will save us more times then ya make a mistake so dont worry (if slected of course hehehehe)

Well i hope we have wilden back for weds as i am itching fro training again if not then bring on Saturday, a clean sheet and a right good win!!!!

You can't win the league with kids!

You can't win the league on a crap pitch either!

Jay said...

Wildern will be back on from next week so it will be at Burridge this week at 6.

Bryn said...

utter crap!!!!!

The Penguin said...

Good news fellas, I,ve been talking to the guys from Top Soil, and their going to make the pitch awesome.

Bad news is the subs have gone up to £8 a game.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter helter skelter/She's coming down fast/ Yes she is/Yes she is.
This wont be the start of a familiar downturn in Burridges season, believe my children and your god will deliver your rewards. 2 wins from 2 was a groovy start dudes, keep the faith and believe in yourselves, children of the Burridge Revolution. You cant always get what you want, but remember, you will always reap what you sow.
Peace to you all, Charlie

well boys saturday was a shocker especially 1st half! 2nd wasn't much better but a improvement none the less, after all we drew the second half and we still could of played much better! petes right when he says we have to go out and give 110% from the first whistle to the end whistle we do this then we wont have to play catch up in second halves of games!! i also put my hands up i missed a shocker in the first few minutes of the 2nd and could of brought it to 2-1 and a different story could of unfolded but lets put staurday behind us and lets think about next sat we all have to work for each other and be available for each other on the pitch, we were to static so like froudie says lets work on our fitness and we can run for 90 ,minutes!!
Hope training goes well unfortunately im unable to make it this evening my ankles fine but dont wanna risk aggravating it to miss sat cu all then

Mr T Soil said...

I am currently working on the pitch, by saturday it will be like playing on a bowls green.

I got a snotty reminder from our human resources department reminding me to fill and check some private information forms. By the second page I was asked to confirm (by multiple choice) my religion and sexuality. From now on I am a lesbian Budhist. I reckon a promotion's in line.

Dykey said...

well then if that is the case fancy dinner?

Mark Sanderson said...

Why not? Anyway, I've been talking to my homeboy Betchers who's keeping me updated on reds and yellows. Guess what, the ref from the Target game sent them in. I'll be writing him a cheque for £24 (Me, Matt & Bryn) so get ready to reimburse!

the fa said...

barry is just saying that to get more money off you mate.

benaldinho said...

£8 per game?!! the impovement of the pitch is NOT a financial matter for players! i for one am not paying £8 per game so someone can improve the surface!!! especially when there are 2 other pitches we can play on! perhaps we should get the burridge sports pitch seeing as there shite and havent won a game yet they'll soon be back to senior 1 while we pass them into the prem!! come on A.F.C
enjoy training boys make sure you run them raggid pete!!
cu all sat for 3 points and a fiver a game!
Dykey fuck off the buddist lezza is mine!! fuck dinna sweetheart bring a couple of fellow budist lezza's and come on round to the hot tub for bourneville body paint and possibly some curly wurley's!!!!

Geoffrey Shafer said...

After the impression you boys made on me after the Priory Rovers demolition, i have to say you left me totally deflated after the capital game, i was in a total rage!

Has anyone read the book i feature in? Its called 'Pop goes the Weasel' and in it i play a game called THE FOUR HORSEMAN. Lets just say i play the game to win, and failure can often have disastrous consequences, bear that in mind for Saturday boys!

pete said...

Good training session last night thanks for the positive response.Back to Wildern next week.Now that last weeks game is out of our system lets move on and beat this lot from over the river Sat KO 2.30 be there for 1.45 @Burridge.

Barry said...

lads, if you want the pitch sorted out it is going to cost money. The only way to raise funds is to increase subs.

top soil is not cheap you know.

benaldinho said...

i can understand it cost's money but there should be a club meeting to disscuss changes in subs. We need 2 have a majority vote if its 2go ahead. Personally i'd rather not play on the pitch at all seeing as we have got allotment road and tichfield wreck we can use which are both good enough pitches and not need an increase in subs!! who technically owns the pitch burridge club or the council?

leildo said...

ben, someone's winding you up mate. there is no way barry would even discuss those sort of matters on this blog, as he knows what the reaction would be if he did raise the subs to £8 a game.

what is it with all this top soil talk anyway? that really is the least of the problems on that pitch. for it to be done properly is going to cost thousands of pounds. its not going to get done lads. oh god, flash back to 2004....

benaldinho said...

benaldinho said...

Mark Sanderson said...

I had a very bad dream again last night about going into space. It filled me with the fear of God. Can anyone tell me what this may mean? I may have to nightnurse it tonight to avoid such horrors.

Dykey said...

A) bet the game is off 2moz as it is raining so not happy!!!
B) It may mean sandy that your spirit is free to float where it chooses hence showing an inner calm only available to few men

iceman said...

No way the game will be off! I so want to make amends for last week, Please no more raining tonight. Lets kick ass tomorrow!

David Beckham runs in early from training one afternoon and dashes to the bedroom to find Posh spread out naked on the bed puffing and panting. Becks asks her suspiciously “what are you doing?”.

Posh stutters a reply “I’m – er, er……. I’m having a heart attack” .

“Oh no” he cries in despair, “I’ll call an ambulance”. He runs downstairs, picks up the phone and begins dialing 999.

However, he is stopped in his tracks by a tearful Brooklyn. “Whats the matter son?” asks Becks.

“Uncle Giggsy is in the wardrobe with no clothes on daddy”, comes the sniffled reply. Absolutely infuriated, Becks runs upstairs and kicks down the wardrobe door.

Sure enough, the carpet-chested Welshman is stood there, starkers. “You w***er Giggsy” screams Becks. “My wife is
right over there having a heart attack, and your running around naked scaring the sh!t out of Brooklyn”

I thank you
