OH SARF LONDON, IS FULL OF......
A short and sweet report from Torpedo Bermondsey's Duncan Bryson
In the week when the Mighty Lions of Millwall were promoted to the First
Division, South London teams (and players) are continuing to perform in our own
St Reatham FC hold onto top place with a solid 33 points in a
week which saw no side break the forty barrier, the backbone of which came from
Peckham-born Rio Ferdinand, with a goal, a clean sheet and a star man award.
Keeping up the pressure in second are the Luke Perry All-Stars, also benefitting
from Rio's performance, but Duck United continue to flounder in third, the
choice of Leicester and Sunderland defenders not looking quite so inspired now,
is it?. Duck's plight is hardly surprising, as their only connection with South
London is their former Lions striker, Whoa Teddy Teddy, who is now old and shit
and useless. The last of the money places is held by Ron with his good team,
Bill S Preston North End
Further down the table Torpedo Bermondsey were denied further advancement by
Abel Xavier's madness and shiteness, but remain in 8th place, a commendable
effort after an unlucky start, a first time performance which will have those
teams not based south of the water wondering if they will ever break the
hegemony. After Torpedo, lies the great expanse of mid-table, teams who've been
mediocre all season intermingled with early pace setters who have faded badly.
Life is kept interesting for this lot by the fair play award, and this could
really go to the wire, Rob's Michael Bolton Wanderers poised to bring some
respectability to his season.
|The best thing seen in a Villa shirt all season...|
At the hard end of the table the Soft Centres are proving to be the Bradford of
Dreamteam; just not good enough I'm afraid, but at least you'll get your money
back. Above them Villa Rejects show that the Midlands can't compete with South
London at football or silly accents, and Cory's choices at the start of the
season cast doubt on his claims of Ferguson-like managerial skill. "I'm 4th in
the whole country in my other leagues" he says.
Are they Scottish leagues or something?
