Keeping Cool in Commentary

I have to admit that I had to work hard to keep my emotions in check while commentating on last Saturday’s match at Southport. It wasn’t the defeat which pushed me close to the edge: heck, if losing pressed my buttons I’d have cracked twenty years ago! It was the contentious decisions of the referee which irked me, but I like to think that I … Continue reading Keeping Cool in Commentary

A game in which too many small factors turned against Wrexham; you can cope with that sometimes, but Woking were too well drilled not to capitalise on their marginal gains. The flow of events against Wrexham went from a borderline disallowed equaliser (above), which was beyond their control, to a badly-mistimed Andy Bishop header in injury time which certainly wasn’t. Then there was a big … Continue reading Wrexham 1 Woking 2
