Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
03/04 Sheff Wed Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
WEDNESDAYâ€™S response was nothing more than Proudlock falling over. Back Town came, picking the Wednesday pockets in midfield and scurrying away towards Wonderland. In the 10th minute Rankin muscled and bullied his way through three so called tackles down the Town right.

And Mansaram was substituted after about 35 minutes; he crumbled after challenging for a through ball and never got up. He was replaced by the Gallic Mansaram, whose first contribution was to try and flip the ball from the line out to the scrum half. Press fast forward on this video until you get to the 44th minute, you wonâ€™t have missed anything.
Here we are then, a minute left in the half, all plain sailing, happy and carefree, aimless as a leaf in a gale. N-N chased a pass down their right under the Police Box. Jevons tracked back and got his body betwixt Congolese and bladder. N-N rolled past Jevons with the merest of pushes and the linesman immediately flagged for a foul to Town. So far, so dull. Perhaps he was bored, perhaps heâ€™s a secret lemonade drinker? Who knows why N-N decided to vent his fury on Jevonsâ€™ ankles, swiping away our angelâ€™s feet with a tremendous hack. Just think of a slightly tipsy uncle trying to take away the tablecloth with your motherâ€™s finest china tea set sitting proudly atop. And the whole family watching from the sofa. Clunk, clang, thud and cousin Crowe came running over to remonstrate. Not content with sticking at a certain yellow card, N-N twisted and went for pontoon. Into Croweâ€™s face went a hand, out of the refereeâ€™s back pocket came a red card. Marvellous. Do you think it was all a businessmanâ€™s conspiracy? Wednesday fearing financial meltdown if their big local derby disappears into the third division? Not content with giving us a goal, they get their only decent player sent off. Please, please, please have the three points Mr Grimsby.
Only one more thing happened, Brunt curled a free kick from their centre right around the wall and a foot past Fettisâ€™ left hand post. Fettis had it covered, the ball wasnâ€™t hit very hard, it wasnâ€™t interesting.

So there you are. Arenâ€™t our South Yorkshire friends kind to us. First Barnsley, now Wednesday: makes you want regional football doesnâ€™t it. Apart from the first 10 minutes Town did nothing. Apart from the first 45 minutes Wednesday did nothing. The first half was one sided in the sense that one side wanted to avoid defeat and would have quite liked to win. Jobs were done well, that is all.

"Why is yours yellow and everyone else has a white one?".
The report continues in the Second Half.
