Question of the Week
How much would you accept for Omar Bogle?
10/12 Bristol Rovers Part 2

A couple of minutes later Croft chased after a bouncing ball inside the Town area with two gaseous elements billowing plumes of smoke at his ankles.

Telling out about this game is like describing every stitch in a cardigan. So what if Newey lashed a free kick high into the area, with the ball falling to The Lump, who chested it down and hit a dipping volley onto the top corner of the "F" in the Osmond seats. A bit later Bolland dummied and was crumpled by one of their fair-headed scufflers, who wasnâ€™t even booked. About 25 yards out, just to the right of centre, Newey stood over the ball, tried to remember Pythagorasâ€™ theorem, and curled the ball a couple of feet over the centre of goal. Yeah, "ooh", if you want, as long as you are being post modern, or doing an impression of Kenneth Williams.
Iâ€™ve missed out something: their shot almost on target. Near the end Agogo spun on the edge of the area and dragged a shot towards Mildenhallâ€™s left. For no reason other than terminal ennui was setting in, Mildenhall fell and conned journalists into believing heâ€™d made a save. The ball was going a foot or so wide and had no pace whatsoever. It doesnâ€™t count.
Half time: Grimsby Town 0 Bristol Rovers 0
There we are. After a minute of time added for punishment, that dire diet of stewed cabbage was thrown in the bin. Absolutely dreadful from both teams. They huffled and puffled to no effect. Two passes from Agogo and a couple of crossfield passes from Bolland is the nearest we got to the sort of football that people expect when they pay money. There were no shots on target, no saves made by the goalkeepers. As always with Town the first half was a contractual obligation only.

"Why do we pay full price when we only get half a game."
The report continues in the Second Half.
