London Saints 72 (Griffiths 24, Calais 13) off 22.4 overs Old Chelmsfordians  73-6 (Berkeley 2 – 6) off 21.4 overs A forecast threat of heavy rain meant we opted for a 30 over contest against first-time opponents, Old Chelmsfordians 5th XI.  Having lost the toss, an abject batting performance by London Saints meant the game […]

End of Season Review

Thank goodness that’s over!  A season that began with a whimper (defeat to a poor Crystal Palace team, League Cup exit to Brentford and second half capitulation to Spurs) went out even more timidly (0-3 to West Ham, admittedly a side who can be pleased with their 2020/21 efforts). In between we had some memorable […]

West Ham Away Lost 3 – 0

Sky TV covered the final game, at West Ham, but on a non-sports channel, which came as a shock for those of us minimising our payments to Murdoch’s evil empire. Still a solution available: lock down all media contacts for 20 hours and tune into the re-run at noon on Monday. Was it worth it? […]

Leeds Home Lost 0 – 2

Still no Bednarek as Saints faced Leeds, but on the other hand there were 8,000 season ticket holders at St. Mary’s to witness the occasion – in all likelihood the first live football in over a year for many. Mask wearing seemed to be better observed than at many grounds, a discipline not tested by […]

Fulham Home Won 3 – 1

We live in peculiar times, where a Saturday 3 p.m. kick off becomes inconvenient – there’s live sport to be watched somewhere, even under lockdown restrictions if you look hard enough. I still managed to access Southampton v. Fulham, but the repeat performance on Sky, starting at 22:30 and with no build up or half […]

Crystal Palace Home Won 3 – 1

Minamino was ineligible to play at Liverpool – no great loss, I’d say, but he does make us less symmetrical and maybe a bit more difficult to play against, so he was back to face Crystal Palace. I doubt either he or another returnee, Ings, had touched the ball by the time Palace won a […]

Liverpool Away Lost 2 – 0

Still no Bertrand to face Liverpool, but a recall for Forster: so much for my theory that FF only plays when Bertrand does… and so much for making McCarthy Man of the Match last time out. Walcott was back up front, and although he didn’t make much of an impact, we need someone experienced in […]
