Tuesday 12 October

England 1-1 Hungary
Attendance: Just under 70,000
Ticket: £20
Food and drink: Queues too long, didn’t buy
Programme: Don’t know
Chap count: Fair to high

Left the office at 5.15 and was outside the Volunteer in Baker Street by 5.40 for a nice couple of pints of Neck Oil (at a very reasonable price compared to the likes of The Globe (spit)). Then onto Marylebone for one in there before catching the 7.03 to Wembley Stadium Station.

That was as good as it got as the game was utter dirge. Hungary made life difficult but this was the worst I’ve seen England play in a long time. No creative spark except for Grealish who was inexplicably taken off midway through the second half as Southgate changed system. Best moment was easily seeing Ollie come on.

The only entertainment came from the Hungary section where the cops moved in to make an arrest following a disturbance after England players took the knee. Incredibly, the OB got completely battered and made a hasty retreat onto the concourse and were not seen again for the rest of the night, leaving only a thin piece of netting separating the black shirted ultras from the England family section.

Another Wembley cock-up for the Met.


There aren’t many games I go to where I come away thinking I hadn’t bothered but this was one. Saving grace was being home from Wembley in under two hours.
Maybe they need to make the blocks surrounding the away fans designated "Chap" sections and just let everyone have their fun?

Good game. Always eventful on the Somerset / Dorset / Wiltshire border. The Western League is great but a bit of a shame many of the local teams have been re-distributed elsewhere.

You beat me back Lionheart!

You're right we will need to play better Tuesday to keep it respectable. Penalty and red card on stroke of half time didnt help us though - if we'd gone in at half time 1-0 up with 11 men we might have got something from the game. Referee admitted to me after he might have got the free kick wrong for the second goal too.

Come and say hi if you're there Tuesday.
