    Things you find in a football ground...

    I've just spent the last 3 hours helping to clear up St James' following yesterday's game, ready for Tuesday's LDV clash with Swindon Town. It's quite amazing what you find on the terraces:
    • £1.83
    • A Golf Tee
    • A Programme
    • Someone's Junk Mail

    Add to that a ridiculous amount of plastic Bovril cups, fag ends, tea stirrers and raffle tickets, plus a shredded Essex Yellow Pages that the Braintree fans had thrown up in the air as the teams ran out... all that from just 2,308 people.

    You do wonder about society at times.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    I tend to think the best melting pot to gauge what society is really like is at airports and when you are stuck with people on airplanes.... And I can safely say we are absolutely screwed, and have been for some time..

    When compared to Yorkshire or somewhere, I’d consider it the less of 2 evils, but compared to anywhere else I know, its pretty bad.

    I found a soiled nappy in the rugby dressing room at our school grounds last year. I think someone wasa bit worried about the coming game...
