Coventry City Vs QPR

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/c/coventry_city/6184342.stm

Anyone see this? Obviously the result was fairly good for Cov, but the best bit is they arrived at QPR by Tube after their bus got stuck in traffic. The quote of the article must be manager Micky Adams’ gem:

We bought 23 single tickets at Hanger Lane station and our unsung hero was Jay Tabb, who knew we had to change at Hammersmith to go to Shepherd’s Bush. I feel a bit sorry for him as well, as I did not even put him in the team.

Gutted.

This ended a good run by QPR and shows that clearly the best preparation for a football match is to inhale large amounts of stinky fumes in a tunnel filled with people, rats, pigeons and chips. A lesson learned.

  1. Pigeons on the tube? Not many of them.

  2. I think I saw one once in a surface station. Was so freakish that’s why it stayed with me!

    Ironic, considering how the Central Line has been between 20 and 100% broken every day for the last 8.

  4. I have to say I’m interested how they got to Hammersmith on the Central Line.

  5. Indeed. Hammersmith = District, Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City line last I remember. Actually Hammersmith station might also have another line or two tucked away somewhere :P.

    Well, I’m guessing they did the sensible thing and changed at Notting Hill Gate for the District line ;-)
