The fairytale is over for Sutton, but a couple of things stood out for me from last night.

 

Why water the pitch? Should they really be trying to make the pitch as slick as possible when faced with a superior passing team? In days gone by a team like that would have tried all the tricks in the book to stop them from using their strengths. 

 

The sub keeper eating the pie sounded like good banter until I heard that Sun Bet, who sponsored the team, had offered 8/1 that he would eat a pie during the game. He even admitted to knowing about the bet. It sounds well dodgy.

The pie eater was some size & looked as if he would have filled the goalmouth no problem. Looked like a scotch pie btw.

I'm sure I read he was 47. He is some size, but impressive he is still playing at that level at that age. Maybe "playing" is the wrong word though.

Aye right, so he was....I'd take that with a pinch of salt, or broon sauce.
