Sawadee Saddlers! I am the sole member of the Walsall Supporters Club Bangkok Branch and The Gilbert Alsop has kindly let me do a report on yesterday’s game against the Brentford Bees.
Here I am super cold! You guys have crazy weather here. This is why I wear two hats. This is not buddhist philosophy. This is true life. I wear two hats because it is super cold, you crazy guys. You can see my one hat poking through my retro Walsall hat. Look at the left side of my head. This is not cotton wool this is another hat. Crazy weather, crazy guys!
I saw this super cute mascot for Brentford and thought about switching sides but I had paid £22 to sit upstairs and the nasty man in the bright yellow coat stopped me from walking round to the other end of the pitch, so I stay with the Saddlers. I am happy I stay with them as a well fought goalless draw away from home against a team managed by a Buddhist monk is a very good result where I come from. Super, super Saddlers all the way!
The game was no good but it no matter. I brought many snacks with me to ease the boredom. This is me eating a seaweed-based snack and thus becoming the first Walsall fan to eat a seaweed-based snack whilst watching the Saddlers. I am not the first Walsall fan to eat seaweed though, that was John Stonehouse MP on a beach in Miami in November 1974 as part of his failed Reggie Perrin act. He swallow so much seaweed he change his mind about suicide and then fly first-class to Australia instead. Crazy guy!
Later, I celebrated my first game by eating Mongolian hot pot with The Gilbert Alsop. In-between slurps of his soup, he tell me that McCarey was man of the match and his new favourite player, Andy Taylor, struggled defensively in the first-half but calmed down after the break and was our main threat going forward. All-in-all he think we good value for a point. I disagree. He is crazy guy. Butler was man of the match by long, long way!
