Doddsy Away Day at the Palace

Alright my Ansomesssss howwwwsssss uusssseeeeeeeee ddoooooinnnngggg

Well, as always, it’s West Ham away and it’s live
So we are travelling up to Crystal Palace for a 1230 kickoff.
Thanks again to the Premier League for totally screwing up everyone’s life, not that West Ham don’t do that anyway.
They have also screwed us over by putting the Man United game next week on at 7 o’clock at night on a Sunday, which for travelling fans like me, if I worked (you dont so dont moan. NK) would mean getting home at about two in the morning to get up four hours later. (Bank Holiday)

Anyway, enough about Man United and I’m not even gonna mention that stupid penalty decision last week at Liverpool where we were robbed which seems in my mind, Ironic that we were robbed by Liverpool.
I will let you do your own jokes.

So like I said, we have set off at 6:15 in the morning to head up the normal route, but this time we are driving all the way into Crystal Palace as transport links into the ground are absolutely awful.,
However they have been kind and they have put a supermarket at one end of the ground so we can go in there and pick up some beer.
Oh wait no they don’t serve alcohol on match days no wonder businesses are going to the wall

So once we had travelled all the way up to Crystal Palace, we stopped off at the pub,
who do know how to make money as they put two bars outside the pub to make it easier for you to get beers which was a right little touch.

Onwards and upwards to Crystal Palace‘s ground or Richmond as they will be now called, thanks to Ted Lasso TV show.
So really this is the Ted Lasso derby which I’m surprised nobody has mentioned.
A great programme, well worth a watch as it takes the piss out of football players and also out of West Ham.

So we’ve been on a bit of form lately, and the idea was for it to continue.
with Ian and Norman in the car, for once I wasn’t driving, so it was down to Norman to get us there and back
so a massive thank you to Norman for that
as come Wednesday. I will be driving all the way up to Man City for that game

We wandered up to the ground where announcements were going off every few minutes telling us that there was a problem with entry to the ground, but it turns out we were okay, and it was the Crystal Palace fans that were struggling to get in

After the performance and the result, I wish they hadn’t let us into the ground, but that’s only when the trouble started
There really was quite a lot of animosity in the ground and that spilled out after the game where police horses, were running riot, along with police officers kicking off.

One of the lads I travelled up with got kicked by a police horse. After he was pushed into it by a policeman, the police horse stood on his foot quite heavily. And of course we ended up in Croydon University A&E.

Fuck me could the day get any worse,yes it could. I’m not being funny but me and my mate were the only normal people in there
Jesus Christ. What a place that was. Fair play to the nurses, security guards, et cetera who deal with a shit day in day out, and I don’t mean my stupid friend who got stood on by a horse.

So after a shit game of football a long day, most of it spent in a hospital. We eventually got home at 9:30 having set off at six in the morning.

And like I always say, would I do it again,
of course I would in a heartbeat.
because we are thick stupid twats and as I have said before,
does David Moyes get it no
do the players get it no
do you all get it
of course you do, its in the blood

As always, the most important thing is

Brady out out out
