Football update

Went to my first Bromsgrove Rovers match back after University on Saturday. George Rooney has finally been sacked...ooops....I mean 'resigned due to other work commitments'. Steve Pope, the skipper, has taken over as caretaker assistant manager and we've signed Andy Sinton, the former England international. At 38 he put in a brilliant performance as we overcame Evesham 2-1 at home.

They scored in the 68th (from a dubious free-kick) after we'd missed a penalty and numerous other opportunities to put ourselves ahead: we could have had 3 or 4 by half-time. It looked at that stage as if it was season over for us...we just couldn't finish it. Then up popped Paul Scewczyk to grab two in the last three minutes. The then showed that we can still summon up a damn good atmosphere!

It was a much better showing from a team which now has a little bit of class and a lot more team spirit. We may just make the Premier yet!
