Notts County Part 2

By: Tony Butcher
Date: 08/12/2004

NO changes at half time. On with the show. County slashing Town, pace, power, pathetic shot. Over the hills and far, far away. Sort it Sladey!

Flickery and trickery down the right. A Pinault scoop, a loopy Macca cross, a Gordon header blocked. Some sabre dancing in the area as limbs were locked, the ball rolling towards Parkinson near the penalty spot. PIPE dived, blocked and watched as the ball wriggled like a dying worm towards the bottom left hand corner.......and in. Let’s party

Oh, close. Cramb crossed, Gordon stooped and headed quite wide. Teenagers happy -"Deano". Town broke, Macca raiding, crossed, cleared, Gordon floozied the ball goalwards from 25 yards. Henderson tipped the ball aside. Nice. Teenagers happier still.

Time ticking, what’s happening? Was I asleep? Babycham battling down at the Osmond. All limbs and leg ups, their big Gordon flicking anything that passed his way. Shots, call them shots? Higher than a speeding horse, wider than a tumbling woodpecker. Will the scoreboard survive the pounding?

County substitutions. They brought players on and took some off, who was watching, who cared?

Care. Twenty minutes left, Town steamrolled. Corner, corner, corner, corner, corner. Thighed off the line, skimmed clear, glanced clear, headed wide, headed goalwards, off the line, out, THE WRONG GORDON hooked the ball under Fleming, through some stray Christmas shoppers and in.

A minute later Gordon out of position, right winger crossed, Hurst nodded, ball in net. Flag up, offside, County joy ended, they thought they had scored. They were not correct. Off came Cramb and Bull, on came Reddy and Sestanovich. 3-4-3, Town flowed, Town poured, they passed again. County torn. Town defended. Better.

Reddy fouled. Well, Reddy fell. Free kick, on the right corner of the area. Pinault seduced, WHITTLE stooped, glanced and rolled as the ball trundled in to the bottom right corner. County whacked long, Town held on, what chances? None. Town broke, Parky wasted, Sestanovich slapped wide. In the corners, Sestanovich showing off on the edge of the Town area. Peep, peep, yeah. A win.

I’m going out now. I may be some time.

Nicko’s Man of the Match

Two men to shower with flowers. Pinault the terrier, the pinnacle of calm. No, this time, more than any other time this time, it’s Justin Whittle for a big bruising battle and a goal.

Official Warning

Mr A Penn. Only noticeable for his refusal to book, which is hardly the most heinous crime. Extremely ok, 7.231. Sleep well.
