There comes a time when you have to stand up for what is right. Good v Evil. Big v Small. Wear your war paint with pride. Avengers Assemble. Form the Battle Lines.

12.30GMT the House Derby takes place.

Hawklads team versus my so called team.

Chelsea versus Newcastle

Giants versus underdogs

A team which has won 11 major trophies in the last 10 years. And a team which has won nowt since 1969.

A team trying to win the Premier League and another happy to survive another year.

A team assembled from world class stars playing total football and a team which will run about like headless chickens and will basically just try to kick anything that moves.

Hawklad quietly confident. His Dad secretly just hoping we can keep it down to less than a 5-0 thumping.

Subsequent posts might see just a tad chastened….

  1. Ice Hockey is my favorite sport. Havent watched in a couple years. Used to go up north every year & get a hotel room and tickets to the game. I like the Detroit Red Wings and I’d watch them play in Anaheim, home of the Mighty Ducks. The only lost one of the 3 games I went to.

    I hope you didn’t make a wager on that game. And Hawklad better practice “gracious winning” and not rub your nose in it too bad.πŸ˜†πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
