What did you do at the weekend?

Our Weekend News May 9th 2011

At last the holidays have started. We've had to do two hours work everyday for ages now and they only give us thousands of pounds a week to do it. The boys have been told by the club that we have got into that thing where we play clubs with funny names and we can have a few weeks off.

The boss took us to Stoke yesterday. We wanted a trip to the seaside but at least there was a nice river. We went to Britannia for lunch. The boys were laughing saying they thought John Terry had probably had Britannia. Oh we are naughty.

Anyway we were all set for a nice relaxing afternoon in the sun when these bigger boys came and asked if we wanted to play football. Robin was up for it but nobody else really wanted to. Eventually Robin, Jack & Aaron persuaded us. The bigger boys explained they need some practise as they were going to try and win a trophy next week. We didn't understand until Cesc explained what a trophy was. Cesc had even held one once. That's why he is always in charge. He's so cool.

Andrey was in a right mood. He hardly ever wants to play. He got cross and pushed a much bigger boy over. That was brave as Andrey is only little. They kicked the ball towards our goal. It was very funny because we all stood still and the ball hit one if their boys quite hard on the leg. It looked like it hurt but he was happy because he scored a goal. We put out tallest boy in goal and he didn't catch it because his gloves are new and he didn't want to ruin them on the first day he got them.

We couldn't stop laughing at the bigger boys. We kept standing still so they could score and they were so happy when they did. Couldn't they tell we were taking the mick out of them? Robin scored a goal for us but then he is so competitive sometimes. Most of us can't understand it.

Some of the bigger boys said we could be quite good if we tried a bit harder. One said we were quite close to success. We all laughed as it's 207 miles to Manchester and that's not very close at all.

It was a fun game. We wanted to take them on at rounders but they all had to go home as their mums were waiting for them outside which was a shame. Some of the lads heard that lots of people had paid a lot of money to watch us play the bigger boys which seemed odd. Why would anyone pay money to watch that?

Anyway we are back at our hotel now. Very posh, none of your Premier Inn for us. We will put some pictures on Twitter so you can see how much fun we are having.

Wish you were here..... Oh some of you were! Sorry about that.

  2. Don't be too hard on the kids..

  3. Very funny- loved this and it brought a smile to my face. I had nothing but rage after the game- hats off to you for finding humour in such a miserable debacle!
