In the UK Championship Bournemouth hosted promotion rivals Watford, who were comeback winners last week in their 7-2 victory over Blackpool who led 2-0. Well, Watford had a terrible start and had a man sent off in the first few seconds and Bournemouth duly got the victory. BUT its still very tight as 5 teams fight for promotion to the Premier League and it would be AMAZING to have another South Coast derby for Southampton next season. We shall see. Wilkie tourer Al Bush was no doubt at last nights game. Come on ! ! !
In a bizarre connected incident while I was walking/hobbling round with my dog I nodded at a neighbour and looked again and asked if he was a footballer? He said yes but I already knew so popped over the road and had a long chat with Andrew Surman who now plays for Bournemouth. He said he was hoping to get tickets for Saints game against Swansea on Sunday. Still a Saint at heart !
Weather may play a big part in todays fixtures with SNOW having a big impact over Europe. Hope YOUR games not called off.
