BSAD imageBSAD report: Strange old business, football. I mean, as far as I’m concerned, life could be better this morning – I’m busier than a bee on speed, I’m tired enough that I could’ve quite happily stayed under the duvet for another three or four days, my shower’s leaking all over the bathroom floor again, there was no milk left for my breakfast cereal. And yet the Hornets won last night so it’s all a bit fine and dandy….

BSAD imageBSAD report: Just mindless, senseless violence. I’d hoped we’d seen the last of scenes like this in English football grounds – so-called supporters, some barely out of nappies, raining missiles down onto the heads of the defenceless fans below. Sickening to watch.

Still, I guess it’s our fault for giving out a thousand paper aeroplanes in the first place. But how were we to know that these innocuous adverts for BSaD’s forthcoming “Luddite Edition” would be used to wage such vicious war? How could we have guessed that, as the first half crawled mercilessly onwards, plane after plane would ascend towards the roof of the Vic Road end before plummeting point-first onto some poor, unsuspecting punter’s bonce? Look, we’re sorry, okay?
