From where I stood it looked like it was going over.

Sunday 26/10/08
Ellis Guilford School
Pheasant Inn Sunday v Robin Hood FC
Cor blimey guv'nor, you'll never Adam and Eve it, the Robin have managed to have two games in a row!! Well that's worth a good old knees up!!! Blah! Sorry bout that came over all Cheeky Cockney!! But its true for once the Robin Hood don't have a break after a previous game which is just what they need, the opportunity to form some sort of consistency. What a better place to test themselves than at top of the table Pheasant Inn Sunday, who's record going into the game was played four, WON!!! FOUR, scored twenty one, and conceded eight, a formidable start to the season and on paper would have had this down as a banker for them given Robins start to the season.
So to the game, The pitch at Ellis Guilford was top draw flat and recently mowed, perfect for football. Like the few games already gone the Robin start on a front foot forcing in corner after only two minutes, a delivery from "Young" Ali Brown sees Jay (Skip) head just wide. Positive stuff from the Robin and it continues on six minutes when good football ends in a cross from the left, but again the resulting effort on goal goes wide. More pressure and another header wide by Skip, The Pheasant are not offering much in midfield but it becomes apparent that the two young strikers up front and fast and good little footballers, this being the case the Pheasant seek every opportunity to launch it toward them. Eight minutes and this is turning into a fast paced match as "Young" Ali Brown work a long range effort for their keeper to save the resulting break from the Pheasant see them go closest so far with the ball coming off the wood work. Quite a battle this is shaping up to be. Nine minutes GOAL!!!! The Robin score huzzah cheers ring out NO NO the ref has pulled it back OFFSIDE!! protests are waved away the game remains 0 - 0. Another long ball over the top to one of the Pheasant's strikers this time it works GOAL!!! Pheasant 1 - 0 Robin. The Robin disappointed as their own effort had been disallowed, but the Gaffer and the Guru are not gonna let them put their heads down. OH F**K!!! three minutes after Pheasant's first goal a cross comes into the Robin box and bosh! GOAL!!!. Pheasant 2 - 0 Robin. Motivation Robin that's what you need, its a set back but the game is far from over. Corner kick to the Robin, Kebab up from the back see his effort fly wide. Twenty six minutes Gazza one on one with the keeper but fails to capitalise. This good work continues, thirty five minutes and Skip again just wide, a goal is coming its just a matter of time surely!!! Thirty Nine minutes Robin break a deft ball from Gazza to Gattuszola, F**KING!!! YEAH!!! GOAL!!!. Pheasant 2 - 1 Robin. The wind is at the Robins backs now will they use it. More pressure but no more goals, first half ends Pheasant 2 - 1 Robin.
The Robin need to use the moment gained at the end of the second half and go in search of the equaliser. Unfortunately a contentious back passed decision from the ref see the Robin concede a free kick just yards from goal. Smashed into the back of the net by The Pheasant not the start to the second half Robin wanted. Pheasant 3 - 1 Robin. Surely this is the point the Robin's heads go down and it becomes a case of damage limitation. NO! fifty second minute great football and individual ability and the Pheasants defence is ripped apart for Charlie to finish, GET IN! GOAL!! Pheasant 3 - 2 Robin. The game becomes very much end to end stuff both teams having chances and Adam pulling of a fine fingertip save. What the F**k! GOAL!!!! Charlie again a great ball over the Pheasant's defence from Obi-Wan and Charlie from a tight angle lobs the keeper. "From where I stood it looked like it was going over" was the general consensus on the sideline. Great goal magic! Pheasant 3 - 3 Robin. The Robin are buoyed by their equaliser and continue to work hard. Seventy eight minutes and a superb individual effort sees the Pheasant regain their lead. Pheasant 4 - 3 Robin. Well it was a good effort lads, but these are top of the table so there would be no shame if it finished this way its been a great team performance. The Robin were not finished, hell no there was no way they were giving this up they had worked to hard!! The Robin's just desserts came at the latest time possible ninety minutes, another ball over the top of the Pheasant defence and GAZZA finishes it YEEEEEEAAAAAH!!!!!! there is jubilation and dancing on the sidelines brilliant!!! Pheasant 4 - 4 Robin. No time left the ref blows up and the Robin are clearly delighted with the result but they should be more pleased by the display, brave, determined, and a never say die attitude that has been lacking in the Robin as of late. Well done boys you deserve this, the first team to take anything off the Pheasant this season. Lets hope this is the spring board for even better results. Lets hope so.
Gentlemen you were a joy to watch today and should be proud of yourself.
