Yesterday in Warsaw.
Difficult to comment on every event of the game as I don't tend to dwell so much on every kick. Wasn't really interested in seeing this match because of my apathy under Bruce and circumstance of the missus booking tickets to a concert for her and her mate which started at 7 ... meant I needed to be home 20 mins before the final whistle to look after the kids. However, following the changes at the club I decided to venture out to see as much as I could.
Went to Legends bar for the first half - served 4 pints of Speckled Hen by the very agreeable Magda (nee pics, sorry). Thought we looked OK to be honest. Chances bothe ends but edged it in my opinion. Stand outs for me were Westwood's cracking left hand save (is it only me that thinks he looks like Andy Townsend?) and Sess's turn in their area - wasn't a penna. Thought Brown and O'Shea looked quite solid.
Bar was full of Evertonians (owned by one) who were a tad miffed at getting beaten by Stoke on the other screen.
Left at half time to walk closer to home - thinking being then could watch a few mins more before deadline. Warsaw Tortilla Factory - served 2 large glasses of Zywiec by lovely Anna (nee pics again) and chatting with some random Polak who professed to having been on the books of Polonia (Warsaw's second team). Thought we started the second half brightly. Richardson's goal was a cracker again, build up something special. Then Wolves seemed to come into the game much more, but didn't think they looked like they would score. Soon afterwards I needed to leave.
Got home, swapped kiddy shift with the dragon, uncapped a bottle of Svyturys and opened my laptop ...... 2-1 down, WTF??? (not Warsaw Tortilla Factory this time). Couldn't believe it. Thought we were canny comfortable. Missed the penalty, missed their break, missed the controversy of their willer.
Would like to know opinions. Press state that the Larsson penna shouldn't have been given - did he forfeit the kick out of guilt/softness? If so he wants shooting with shite.
Anyway. Sorry for not reporting opinion on every incident - and more important, no barmaid pics. Trust me ... wad & wad.
