Hartlepool 2 – 0 Albion

by

Lordy! Nefarious Westminster Monkey(hanger) and celebrity bellend fan Peter Mandelson

I’m not at the game today – instead I’m supposed to be enjoying Easter at home with my missus and a visit to monkey hanging land wasn’t on the cards. But, I have to make a visit to hospital at 2.30pm today, so I’ll be missing most of the live commentary for this one.

Fully expecting a good win today to put a line under our League One status for next year. No Andrew Crofts in the squad, don’t know what’s happened there, Lee Hendrie makes his full debut in his place. Gavin Hoyte starts after a long time on the fringe. It seems weird with no Nicky Forster in the team – though not as weird as watching him score a penalty in the red and black of Charlton the other day.

I’m back from the hossie and wired up to Seagulls Player, nothing much happened in the first half hour. Half-time, Albion have had the best of the play, nothing to show for it. First chance on goal for Hartlepool, 1-0, kinell. LuaLua on for Hendrie on 57 minutes. Poyet throws in his last hand – Holroyd on for Carole, and Arismende for Navarro, hopefully get a sniff out of this one – shite game by the sounds of it. 2-0, sweeping move from the monkey hangers.

Dicker has a shot pushed onto the bar right at the death. Game over, glad I didn’t travel to this one. We seem to have missed Crofts and Murray badly today. Mandy will be happy though.

    as Gus says “a bad day at the office” a blip I hope we were short of some vital players which shows we must buy well in the Summer to have a hope of going into the championship.

    A blip yes, fancy a big home win on Saturday to seal the deal. I won’t be at the game – bit of a family medical crisis at the minute mate, sometimes football has to take a back seat, but I’m at Gills then Southend next week

    Cheers

    ahh…Peter the Great Lord Mandelson who has annexed so much of Whitehall and is the most powerful unelected deputy since Henry VIII appointed Cardinal Wolsey.
