Ended up going to see Ottawa Fury vs. Penn FC as a guest of a person with limited mobility.  Staff at the stadium were excellent, game on the pitch not so much with Penn winning 2-0.  Ottawa were the better team but were seriously hindered by (and it pains me to say this) Canadian International defender Nana Attakora who was absolutely awful with lax marking leading to Penn FC's first goal, an awful backpass that nearly led to a goal and being just too fat and slow to catch up to the Penn forward on the second goal.  He hasn't been a regular for Canada and I remember him being better (and slimmer) a few years ago.  David Edgar, who used to play for Newcastle in the Premier League must be wondering how his career has gone so wrong to be stuck in a back 4 with that guy.  The rest of Ottawa were pretty good, a lot of energy and created some good chances but not much in the way of end product.

As I couldn't get to our game at Elgin (bit of luck in the end) went over to Civil Service Strollers v Wigton & Bladnoch in the South Challenge Cup ending 9-0 to the hosts. Had thought about going to Hill of Beath v Tweedmouth which turned out to be a record breaking 16-0 win for the Haws but an enjoyable enough day in the capital.

Hearts Women 3-0 Glasgow Girls in SWPL2 at King's Park, Dalkeith. A hard-fought game in the pishing rain won by the home side with goals in the second half after they'd got the measure of their opponents. The ref made two or three blunders and the guy beside me was neither calm but polite in pointing them out. Both teams very young, it's clearly all about development at this level, and some of the Hearts players showed good skills.

Nice wee ground and good food. The shed had a row of plastic chairs, welcome but a bit awkward as it significantly reduces the number of people who can get under cover. It struck me at the end how few of the 50-odd crowd headed for the gate - presumably the majority were friends and family.IMG_20180826_144236317.jpg

Beşiktaş 2-3 Antalyaspor.

Before last night Beşiktaş had never lost a league game at Vodafone Park. Antalyaspor went 3-1 up in the first half then picked up seven yellow cards winding up a Beşiktaş team full of p***ks. Despite facing 31 shots on goal Antalyaspor picked up a deserved three points.

I've been to games at Ajax, Feyenoord, Vitesse Arnham and Heerenveen. Ajax  was the only club where you had to buy a 'package which consisted of Scarf, ticket, hat and voucher for food. I looked up PSV and they had the exact same package. Something like €60+ Bigger games were more expensive  

 

Club Brugge in Belgium got back to me and said a membership is obligatory. So they can bolt, I'm not paying €50 for a Belgian football match. Off to Beerschot Wilrijk instead. 

These rules seem very cuntish. Is it the clubs' choice, in a transparent attempt to rip off fans, or the result of Government legislation to try to prevent hooliganism?
