Wycombe 2 – 5 Albion


So, our most important match of the season so far, the crucial clash, the “really must win game” is finally here, and it’s against the mighty………Wycombe Wanderers, away. After watching some scintillating Premiershit soccer action across the holiday fixtures on the telly, Albion’s BIG game is against a bunch of Buckinghamcestershire farmers? Fuck me ragged. We HAVE to win this one, shurely?

Wycombe hit the upright within minutes, here we go. Cox lively, Murray heads over on 14 minutes. 1-0 to Wycombe on 26 minutes, three goes on goal, didn’t clear our lines, same old, same old. Another goal from these farmers and they climb above us in the league. OVERHEAD KICK FROM GLENN MURRAY!!!!! 1-1, Bennett crosses and big Glenn rattles the Wycombe onion bag yet again. 39 minutes, free kick for Wycombe, off the wall, Brezovan drops it and a farmer taps it in. Fuck me – Albion goalkeepers. Half-time, sort it out Poyet.

No changes at half-time. Dicker crosses………FORSTER!!!! 2-2 and thirteen goals this season for the main man, what a finisher, where would we be this season without him? Let’s win this game lads, come on, it’s Christmas FFS! Gary Dicker is gripping this game, laying it on for our two forwards time and again. Forster gets between them, plays it in, MURRAY heads………3-2!!!!!!!!

What a game! Murray looking for his hat-trick. Murray’s through again on 71 minutes…………..4-2! Glenn Murray, a fucking BEAUT!!!! Virgo on for Navarro on 75 minutes. Ten minutes left, keep it tight, Orient are losing as well. Murray scores again!!!! That’s FOUR for the big fella! Forster goes off on 81 mins, he’s had a great game too.

Two minutes left, this game’s in the bag, and if things stay the way they are, we’re out of the relegation places on goal difference. Bennett misses a great chance to make it six deep into injury-time. Orient were beaten by Saafend. And that’s it, a late, late, Christmas present from Gus and the boys. Deep Joy.

The Hovian’s Albion Team Performance :   8 out of 10

    Enjoyed that one.
    And I thought I caught a flicker of a smile on Glens face in his after match interview….god he is a miserable sod.
    there have been so many rumours flying about its hard to second guess GP he does not give much away
    onwards and upwards.


  2. The Hovian Says:

    Watched the goals tonight – Brezovan’s was a shocker, worse than anything poor old Graeme Smith suffered, you would have thought he was trying to throw the game it was so bad. Their first goal was a typical can’t-clear-our-lines Keystone Cops affair.

    But, our goals were good, poachy efforts, Murray was fantastic – he can be a miserable twat until May if he keeps banging them in like that! Hopefully this wasn’t a blip, and we can build from it – but we still have big defensive worries. I had to agree with Claridge on the FL show – how can we be in so much trouble when we have such a good strike rate? It’s down to shite defenders and goalies. New faces please.
