Now that Simon has been sacked as manager of Bethnal Green Celtic it means that the door is once again open for me to return to the team. We had a friendly today (Saturday) and the new gaffa was really struggling to field a team so I was happy to make my way to Beckton to play.
We lost 5-1. I thought I played well considering it was my first game in months.
I had a bit of an altercation with one of my team mates who decided that I was not pulling my weight in defending and decided to stand on the half way line and shout & swear at me. I don’t react well to being shouted at and sworn at, especially when I’m trying my best.
So I gave him a piece of my mind. The manager didn’t say anything because he started it by swearing at me. It isn’t the first time he has had a go at me while watching me defend from up front. Cunt.
I wasn’t really in the best of moods anyway because I was missing someone. I decided that sitting at home wasn’t the best thing to do so I arranged to go out with Reiss later on in the evening and no kids with us this time.
I couldn’t even get online when I got home. I don’t know what my dad did but he knackered the Linksys router that we have so I’ll have to pop down to PC World on Monday and pick a new one up. Expense I really could have done without.
We went to Big Red and met a guy called William who knows Will, Jenna & Alfie. He was cool and I got on well with him. I’m afraid the same could not be said for Reiss and William’s mate Roman. We thought they were going to come to blows at one point.
My head really wasn’t there and I think Reiss suspected something was up when I asked him to come outside for a cigarette. Something I’ve never asked him to do before. I’ve never been good at expressing my feeling without the aide of fighting so it was tough.
Sometimes Reiss can annoy me and I rant about him on this blog, but every now and again he can come up with some advice that makes me glad we’re friends. He basically told me what I already knew, that I was being rather silly and being cynical. Obviously he put it much nicer than that.
Just when things looked like they were going to turn into a soppy chick film, a woman next to us let out a very impressive burp. This was met with awe from both me and Reiss until her friend stepped in and unleashed an even more impressive offering of gas.
I think personally it is a good thing that I can now talk to people about certain things instead of bottling them up like I used to.
Or maybe it was simply because I was drunk.
I am running the 2018 London Marathon to raise money for Livability UK in memory of my dad. If you can I'd appreciate any donation you can spare. http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/deansaliba
