So this weekend was generally quite a good one as always get to go home early every other Friday, so i just sat down infront of the laptop and downloaded a few LC! bootlegs. Then i spent most of the evening and Saturday morning trying to complete Super Mario Galaxy, i don’t think it’s healthy to be playing the same level for more than two hours, those bastard purple star levels are a pain in the arse, it was the one where in the toy galaxy thing and there are those stupid green platforms that always vanish, but i got there in the end.

Then it was a big game for Macc on Saturday as we faced second in the league Dagenham and Redbridge. Macc started off a little shaky with a mistake from Nat Brown putting a Daggers’s player through only for him to hit it wide. The about ten minutes in Abu Ogogo made an absolutely hideous challenge on Bencherif showing studs sliding straight in to Hamza’s kneecap. This of course warranted a straight red, Hamza tried to play through the pain but you could tell he was in agony and in due course was taken off for Matt Tipton, which seemed a rather odd decision but one that would ultimately change the course of the match. Nat Brown then had to come off injured replaced by Paul Morgan meaning that we’d know used two of our three substitutions in the space of twenty minutes. Macc then began to dominate and their hard work paid off when Matt Tipton was awarded a penalty for being pulled back. He easily managed to slot it home hard and high into the top corner. Macc then managed to continue and expose the Dagenham defence and we managed to dominate possession in the midfield this lead to plenty of chances with both Ricky Sappleton and Colin Daniel hitting the woodwork. But of course nothing hits the back of the net. The start of the second half lead to more of the same with even Lee Bell not having a bad game, and had hit the post another two times with Emile Sinclair one on one with the keeper narrowly missing out on the goal. Finally all our hard work paid off and Colin Daniel who has a superb game managed to thread the ball through the Dagenham defence to Ricky Sappleton who managed to out pace the Dagenham defenders, turn the keeper and tap the ball home to make it 2-0. The game changed as the instrumental Sappleton was replaced by everyone’s favourite Lincoln reject Ben Wright. The game changed as soon as he walked on the pitch our defence who had been tight all game suddenly got clumsy and this of course lead to Dagenham’s opening goal with Wesley Thomas calming slotting the ball home on the 79th minute. Then things went from bad to worse as the idiot the is Matt Tipton decided to kick the ball away when the ref blew for a Dagenham free kick a second yellow card meant that it was ten versus ten for the last five minutes. Dagenham then pushed everyone forward and Macc just seemed to crumbling under the pressure. With on minute of added time to go Ross Draper handled the ball in the area which meant only one thing. And the penalty was rammed home. An on pitch brawl then broke out which was a lovely way to end an enjoyable game, but it left me extremely angry.

Reasons to be annoyed:

1. How many fucking time were we given offside, can we learn to stay on side please

2  Ben Wright you are just awful, i really can’t understand how you scored against Chelsea in the UEFA Cup, why haven’t you scored for us yet

3. You don’t just collapse as soon as you concede a goal, two goals up and with an extra man advantage at home, how many teams let that slip eh.

4. Tipo you may be a Macc legend but why the fuck did you go and sent off like that, TWAT!!!

Things never change do they
