Manchester United V Brighton & Hove Albion. A well deserved 1-2 win for the Seagull's. 73711 crowd. Ticket £42. Programme and magazine £7 (programme £3.50) 

Brighton looked bright and exciting. They played very well. 

Manchester United looked devoid of ideas, far to narrow and very slow in their build up play. To such an extent that I thought this was a very easy game for Brighton. 

Been to Old Trafford a few times now. What I find interesting is that they are trying to make as much money out of you as possible. They had two sets of the premier League trophy, Fa Cup and European cup outside and were charging fans £5 a pop at a photo! With YOUR OWN CAMERA!

7/42: Queens Park 2-3 Ayr United. Championship 05/08.

Brilliant game at Ochilview. Ayr were thoroughly pish for the first 45 and excellent in the second. You could feel the momentum swing and the equaliser seemed inevitable by the time it came, and the winner was a great moment. Fans on the pitch from the pretty good away support.

Loved this. Station Hotel pre-match was great too. Top marks for a night at the fitba.

8/42: Arbroath 0-0 ICT. Championship 06/08.

Less of a thriller here, but Arbroath remains an excellent place to go to a game.

Encountered the ICT Young Team on the train and my mate presciently predicted there would be some 'fallen soldiers' among their number based on their condition at about midday. Sure enough, video footage has emerged of said lads getting huckled by the stewards and denied entry.

They didn't miss much in terms of the game, mind you.

Still, a trip to Bar 1320, which was very enjoyable, and Gayfield is just generally an enjoyable place to be. That said, three pound fifty for a pie! Fucking hell.

Anyway, a good day out and 8/42 done with a two-week break now coming up for me as real life kicks in temporarily before my triumphant return to the trail at Dumbarton v Elgin in a few weeks.

So far I've seen 1 home win, 1 draw, 6 away wins, which seems remarkable to me. 21 goals in 8 games. One hat-trick (Dale Carrick), one two-goal comeback, Ayr United, and one 0-0. I've also seen 7/10 Championship teams play already this season.

First visit to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium for Spurs 4-1 Southampton. Spurs were impressive, the less said about Southampton the better. 

Stunning weather, five goals, a few pints and a pretty incredible stadium. Not too bad all round, despite the surrounding area being an absolute shithole.

Whitburn 0-3 Tranent

Some midweek East of Scotland cup qualifying action between East Premier new boys against Lowland League new boys.

Really impressed with Central Park (not a phrase I ever thought I'd say being used to Cowdenbeath). Nice ground with a big enclosure and two different seating sections! No floodlights however so a slightly strange 6:45 kick off.

Tranent always had the better of the game, including hitting the crossbar from the half way line in the first half. Whitburn had chances but Tranent always on top. Two early second half goals, topped off with a tremendous strike just on 90 minutes made the difference 89ed2ead1a3a16698e828ea99ef75d76.jpg34c6efb00f8c89642807517dba37558e.jpg7adde8e73aa60cb6210af7c555043a19.jpgc5570fea8c54ffb39b71f0e8c1560d5c.jpg

Leicester Nirvana 1-0 Belper United @ Hamilton Park. ⏰ Noon kick-off last Sunday in the United Counties League Premier Division North. Both sides missed chance after chance, including a penalty each, before the home side won it ⚽ on 87 ... from the spot! Crowd 285.

Stopped off at Liverpool 0-3 RC Strasbourg Alsace 🇫🇷 @ Anfield on the way back. Wouldn’t normally post about home games but not in my seat and got a shot of the Anfield Road redevelopment. Pre-season Friendly. The visitors race into a 3 goal lead inside the opening 25 minutes and that completes the scoring against a young Liverpool side + James Milner. 🧮 Crowd around 50,000.

Fulham 2-2 Liverpool @ Craven Cottage 🌱. Opening day of the 2022-23 Premier League season and an early start. Fulham made life very difficult for the visitors who were far from their best and were forced to come from behind twice 🔙 and settle for a point. Crowd around 22,000.

Fisher 0-0 Sutton Common Rovers ... FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round 🏆 @ St Paul’s Sports Ground 🌱. Headed across London as fast as I could and made it midway through the 1st half. The home side increasingly on top but couldn’t score and it goes to a replay 🔂. Crowd 250 ish.

Drymen United 3-2 Gargunnock. 

A winner takes all shootout for the Forth and Endrick League tonight. Gargunnock were 2-0 up early in the second half but a stirring fightback from Drymen saw them lift the title. 

A feisty, frantic contest. Five goals, two red cards and champions crowned. Great night's entertainment.
