Question of the Week
What should happen to the EFL Trophy next season?
26/02 Yeovil Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
A Yeovil corner after a half-hearted shot blundered off Bullâ€™s big toe. It wasnâ€™t remotely dangerous, worrying or bothering. Amankwaah nodded off and nodded a zillion yards wide whilst the Town defence finished their game of backgammon.
Grimsby Town 1 Chester City 0
How about today Town? Just keep on pressing, Amankwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah will crumble, heâ€™s a large man whose legs move quickly sometimes. Any other resemblance to a professional footballer is entirely coincidental. Bananaman in goal seems to believe heâ€™s the sweeper, that or his six yards box is electrified. He kept creeping up behind his centre-backs and shouting boo as they tried to clear.
Wahey, another shot from the helicopter boys. Sliced 18 yards wide from way out side the box. Have you got it yet? They didnâ€™t get inside the Town box, although Williams did, once, catch a Jevons cross; or was it a fallen star? Hereâ€™s another, volleyed towards the KC and the Sunshine Band Stadium. Peter Taylor put in a bid, he needs a 37th choice striker.
Gritton, turning, crossing and doing it again. Wasting his time really, Reddy was forever out wide, and everyone else was tending their prize marrows in their allotments. If we had a shot sometime, maybe, just maybe, weâ€™d score. Looking back, I do have the faintest image burned upon my retina of Crowe shooting towards goal. Or perhaps the Chester farrago is forever etched upon my damaged psyche. Iâ€™m scarred for life! The horror, the horror.
More tippy-tappy stuff from Yeovil. Nothing to report. They looked like a Premier clubâ€™s decent, but not scary, youth team. Lots of niceness, no punch.
Gritton received a free kick in the centre, turned and flaked a shot out for...a throw in...to us. Now, for those who have short lunch hours that was a highlight, even more so than their midfielderâ€™s hair. Ramsden was booked for clobbering the moaning Pole, Tarachulski. That was really the only contribution Tarachulski made to road safety. As the game wept towards half time Townâ€™s defence began to play like puppies. Bull crumbling when last man, Whittle shinning passes out of touch, playing head tennis inside the six yards box as Williams stood and stared on his line.
Ramsden kicked one of their little men again, the referee had a chat, the half ended. One shot on target, one goal. Two distinctly average teams playing in a field.
Half time: Grimsby Town 0 Yeovil 1Youâ€™ve had the action, what about the summary. Fleming was on the pitch, but thatâ€™s all that can be said; Coldicott started to strut, an impassable barrier in front of the defence, even managing to pass accurately twice, and the game was only half over! Forbes had a pocket, and pollypocket Phil was in it. This Gall chap was supposed to be wizzo. Was he playing?
We just couldnâ€™t understand how theyâ€™d managed to score so many goals. It was easy to see why theyâ€™d conceded so many. The door was half open, it just needed a little shove.
