Sick as a parrot ou mal comme un perroquet

Well what do you expect if you don't take your chances and play badly in defence?

Answer, you tend to lose.

Today's FA Cup exit at the hands of Hitchin Town (how embarrasing is that) was awful. We allowed a very average side to dominate possession and paid the price. 1-0 down after 20 minutes, Margate did come and should have equalised before half-time. Two further goals were conceded before a dramatic comeback. Three goals in ten minutes to get back to 3-3 before the home side slotted their winner with a quarter of an hour to go.

Three goals in the last 10 minutes were enough to beat Fisher Ath. in the last round but no such luck today.

Elsewhere, "les rosbifs" shatter French dreams by reaching the Rugby World Cup Final with a 14-9 victory over the home side in Paris.

Sorry to hear about your team's demise. Better luck in your next match.
