The Creative League So Far…



We’re now 4 matches into the Creative League and despite our confidence at the start of the season, we haven’t really done as well as we would like. Ok, let’s be blunt. We’re doing dismally. Really dismally. We’ve successfully managed to acquire, from 4 games, 0 points, cementing us firmly to the bottom of the league. It’s not all bad though. Last week, for example, we scored 9 goals! Unfortunately, the opposition (DFC) scored 21. That gave our goal difference a bit of a battering too. Ok, why don’t we just show you….

So we’re having a season that’s arguably as catastrophic as Liverpool’s, only we haven’t got a Roy Hodgson to blame for it. So instead, we’ve gathered a brief list of <span style=”text-decoration: line-through;”>excuses</span> reasons for our under par performances:-

–                   We’ve been afflicted here in the office with all manner of the sniffles and other debilitating symptoms.

–                   At the risk of sounding a little like Arsene Wenger, we’ve felt hard done by with some refereeing decisions. Sniff.

–                   We have no manager. I wonder if Roy Hodgson is free….

But excuses aside, we’ve been diabolical! However, we have a renewed sense of confidence and tonight we’re going out against Code to score 20!! Hopefully they won’t then score 30!
