Just the one game today for me, I had intended a double but after freezing my ass off I decided to chill in the afternoon. The game I saw this afternoon was quite entertaining but it reminded me why I don’t do set up’s like this to often.
This game was at the West Bromwich training ground, a unremarkable venue in truth basicly a park with a could of nice pitches at the beginning. I took a friend with me who had a e cig and was told off twice for using it once in the 80th minute by a , I say the world loosely ‘security’ kid who just mumbled about it then again as he was leaving through the car park with no one about by some old git yelling and doing so , so loudly that their doorman jogged over asking what was going on . Just the staleness of such a facility puts me off going, give me a non league ground any day.
The game was quite good with Sunderland scoring some good goals. Baggies scored first in the 29th minute with a great goal off the left wing firing into the far net. Sunderland came back on 35 minutes with a low drive and took the lead on the stroke of half banging the ball into the top corner from 18 yards.
Another top corner finish made it 3 1 in the second half before baggies scored a tap in after Sunderland keeper parried the ball. Sunderland extended the lead from a corner, that went in off the bar. It was then 5 2 from the spot with a low strike. The Baggies got a late goal back, a cross from the right was dropped by the keeper and they stuck it in the roof of the net and for their staffs whiney attitude I was pleased they lost . Cheers
