One nil to the murderer

Sung to the same tune as one nil to the Londoners, the Woking fans were belting this out last night as Lee Hughes put Forest Green Rovers into the lead at the Kingfield Stadium. I couldn’t face the thought of the long trip to Leeds – my total admiration & support goes to those who went- and I can’t stand sitting in front of Sky Sports wishing the minutes away , so I went to check out Bradley Jordan’s debut for FGR. What a fantastic end to end game it was too and regardless of your moral stance on Lee Hughes , the goal he scored was a fantastic example of why EVERY team needs a natural goalscorer. In truth Bradley was a bit disappointing and on this evidence will not break through at Charlton . Nevertheless it was his first game so I’m sure he will improve.
The level of sustained abuse that gets thrown at players from the crowd in these lower league games is quite shocking. Last year at Woking, I even complained to the stewards because it was so unpleasant . All I got back was a ‘I know its terrible isn’t it ?’ Certainly the strident view from a number of the Woking faithful was that Lee Hughes hadn’t completely repaid his debt to society, particularly when he was up our end for corners.

Fantastic performance and result at Leeds , very well done to Jose Riga and the team. I’m not much of a fan of any of the imports to be frank. However , Astrid definitely shows glimpses of talent and after his assist for the goal at Notts Forest , he did it again last night with the pass to Reza , whose finish was exquisite. Great stuff , lets hope this is the start of a scoring bonanza …

One thought on “One nil to the murderer

  1. I couldn’t face the thought of a long trip to Leeds and I’m a Leeds fan who only lives 15 miles away!! Got to agree with the abuse at non-league level as I gave the Colwyn Bay manager a load of it at my local club, Harrogate Town, 10 days ago…then again he was ex-Chelsea player Frank Sinclair!
