As thrashings go, 43-0 takes some beating, just ask the ladies of Caerphilly Castle FC.
In the ten games played so far this season they have conceded 219 goals and scored just 1 however the team has vowed to carry on.
The problems started over the summer when there was a mass exodus of players to form a rival club, Cwmbran FC leaving club Chairwoman Julie Boyce little choice but to come out of retirement to shore up the side, now made up of reserves and junior players.
Football is a passing interest of mine only, I can no longer name the England team as I could back in the 1970’s, in fact I would struggle to name 2 or 3 of them.
I started losing interest due to the prima donna attitude of some of the prominent players, the inconceivable wages the players ‘earn’ and the falling down and rolling over that players do to achieve a free kick, this action is tantamount to cheating in my opinion and these players should be sent off for a while, into the naughty corner, to have a think about their actions.
I can’t imagine how these delicate little flowers would have coped being on the receiving end of a tackle by Ron ‘Chopper’ Harris, Tommy Smith or Norman ‘Bites yer legs’ Hunter they would probably cry and run to mummy.
It is nice to see that the spirit of the game is alive and kicking in Julie Boyce and the ladies from Caerphilly Castle FC, if they are feeling at all down in the dumps I would advise them to watch a documentary called ‘Another Bloody Sunday’ which followed the downs and further downs of Doncaster’s rugby league club.
Back in 1980 the Dons’ were heading for a full season without a win and eventually overcame Huyton 6-3 to avoid a season’s whitewash!
Everyone loves a tryer but sometimes trying is just not enough, when you are facing the HMRC field enforcement officer over your desk, you need to ask yourself if expert advice would not go amiss.
Talk to TaxGone about a Company Voluntary Arrangement; avoid your ‘Bloody Sunday’ and inject a bit of spirit back into the business with a CVA.
