I think I know how Matteo feels now.
Nothing worse than staring at the phone from several thousand miles away waiting for the texts. At 10.45 New York time on Saturday morning the half time report was promising. At 12.00 when the final score of the Hampton game filtered through, together with the texts and calls providing some detail it was tough news indeed.
I wish I could have been there. Hearing about 250+ passionate (well behaved) Wealdstone fans getting behind the team in what was clearly a terrific struggle. Let’s not forget, Hampton are a good side, champions of our league last year and going well in the league above with an excellent home record – and we came within 2 minutes of a replay.
It has been a good cup run, three 1-0 wins to get us this far. All narrow margins but achieved with a measure of quality and control especially the Bishop’s Stortford game. We need to carry this forward now, tonight in the league and Saturday in the Trophy.
Normal service will be resumed on the blog but how about 250 fans at Leyton tonight?
