Now it’s October and I have found comfort. We are finding our feet and the boys like me, not in that way.
I have another month and another 6 games under my belt and I feel at home. I have earned a solid £2.3k at the moment, enough to let an apartment not too far from the ground. I had to leave the cat back with my mum even though it clawed at my jeans and wouldn’t let me leave, nonetheless I have my own gaff.
Enough about me, more about our form and whats been happening.
Sutton Common 0-0 Hounslow United
I can’t even begin to describe how boring this game was. We should’ve won however the lads probably wouldn’t have been motivated by my constant yawning on the side lines. What do they expect when they produce that trash? I was hopeful however,the opposition had no shots on target and we controlled the game but PUT THE GOD DAMN BALL IN THE NET. Side note – Our star Central Midfielder Olukanmi had his foot broken in this game. I am fuming in so many ways.
Sutton Common 0-2 Spelthorne
If the last game was trash this was just outrageous. Honestly, I yawned a lot in the last game but this one was a swear-fest. The lads told me at half time to start a swear jar and by full time my weeks wages was poured in. Disappointed is an understatement but fair play to Spelthorne, they took advantage of us being totally shite.
Knaphill 0-4 Sutton Common
Up and down like the proverbial yo-yo yet again. Stuart Richardson has received a letter from the Queen, he’s been awarded a knighthood. Taser Hassan bags a goal too and we look like the team we all have wet dreams about, oh yeah, Sutton Common.
Sutton Common 6-3 Colliers Wood
4-2 up at 52 minutes and then for some reason the game blew up in the last few minutes. BUT we scored SIX. Amazing. Both strikers, Dunn and Richardson bagging braces and making sure their trousers remained at a respectable level. 10 goals in two games is not shabby. Not even fussed by the 3 goals conceded, we can live with that as long as we are scoring 6 every game.
Sutton Common 3-0 Bedfont Sports
RIP ROARING, FREE SCORING COMMONERS. Was the chant from the 158 home fans who turned up for this fixture. Bloody hell. I am starting to think we are on to something here. Barely any chances fell for Bedfont and Billy bloody Dunn scores again.
East Preston 2-5 Sutton Common (FA Vase 2nd Qual. Rnd)
Will we ever stop scoring? 18 goals in 4 games is just getting a bit outrageous now… September has been a month for goals and specifically Billy Dunn, who once again bags not only 1, not 2, not 3, BUT FOUR GOALS. I have sent him an invite to go out for dinner, I love the man. He respectfully rejected my invite, sadly.
So in hindsight, September has been outrageous. So many goals. I want us to be free scoring, fuck defending just score and outscore them. But where does this leave us?
Goodness me. Dizzy heights of 3rd come the end of September. We are challengers, if we hadn’t lost on the opening day to Farnham we would be right up there. Plenty of games to play but, Diary, I am confident. I may not be a tactical genius but I know how to swear and yawn.
Successful September. Up the Commoners.
