Hard to know where to start !

Business first, I feel a bit peeved (could use another word !) about the Bohemians game, Bohs were leading 1-0 and had restricted Sligo to very few chances, before the match turned on a very dubious red card. I have not seen it myself, but understand that the Bohemians player was being held around the legs which he "shook" in order to free himself and was sent off for kicking his opponent. Sorry if I have got that wrong, but it is close enough and I understand that the reaction of the furious Bohemians coach was worth the price of admission alone !

Not sure how many of you noticed, but in the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich won their second game of the season with a 92nd minute winner at Hoffenheim. The winning goal had more than a hint of offside about it , but the strange thing is that in the previous win, over Wolfsburg on matchday 1, the deciding goal also came as time expired. Referee for both games was Thorsten Kinhöfer, not saying there is anything sinister in that, but how has he already taken charge of two Bayern games just four matches into the new season, thought that kind of thing only happened in the EPL !

Elsewhere, Brentford knocked Everton out of the Carling Cup !!!!!

Dixie Dean, Alan Ball, Howard Kendall, Brian Labone, Kevin Sheedy, Bill Kenwright, John Parrott, Sir Paul McCartney can you hear me ? Your boys took a hell of a beating ! Your boys took a hell of a beating !
OK, maybe not, it took penalties, but the Bees had already missed one which would have settled things inside 90 minutes and this is a famous victory for my beloved Bees. Arsenal at the Emirates up next please !

Just in case you missed it, Brentford knocked a virtually full strength Everton out of the Carling Cup !!!!

A few very basic notes about a couple of matches later, just small stakes at best as there are far more interesting games later in the week. By the way, photograph is of Dixie Dean, not me in my playing days !
Back later.
