This is without question the most positive post of mine you're likely to read like.....ever. The reason for this new wave of enthusiasm and general happiness is souly down to number 83 on my digital television box. "83" better know as Sky Sports News is the saviour of digital television with 24 hour sport updated info, however little did i know that within the space of a week and a half would sky sports news go form being the saviour of digital television to the saviour of my entire generation. You may or may not have read a previous post on this blog listing the reasons my generation sucks sweaty nut sack (i stand by them all) however a glimpse of light has somehow slithered into my fairly dark and gloomy outlook on the late 80's early 90's baby, well rather 2 glimpses, tho they sound awfully similar.
Yeovil Town are a Coca Cola league one Football team that have just recently escaped the cold grasp of relegation thanks to one OUTSTANDING player. Keiran Murtagh is an old school friend of mine with whom i spent most of my early adolescent youth getting' up to all sorts of shit. I lost contact with him once we left school under belief that having already been playing for Charlton Athletic for a year before the end of school that disassociating him from a bad egg like myself would give him a push in the right direction and maybe one day he would repay my distance with a million pounds once he signs his first major deal with Manchester United (Thats who he supported not me, I'ma GOONER!) I attempted to follow Murtagh's career through the medium of T'internet informing me of his move to fisher Athletic and Trial at Fulham Football Club, then, nothing, he dissapeared nobody could find him, not even my secret agent ninjas who found Saddam WAY before the yanks did. It took an anonymous E-mail that to this day i have no clue was sent by detailing a car crash in the Tower hamlets are of East London in Which a young Footalling starlet had been driving under the influence and ploughed his mothers car into a wall injuring FOUR of his friends, It was Kieran incase you hadnt cottened on yet, ya thicko! This was the first piece of news i'd had regarding Mr Murtagh for about 2 years and it was distressing to say the very least, the case that followed the crash was a major local talking point bringing into the question the power of football over law Branding Murtagh's behaviour as "disgraceful", Judge King added: "You had been speeding in order to show off to your young friends."certain prats commented (and i quote) :A new defence plea then "Talent and prospect". Lets just hope that when this moron reaches the pinnicle of his "talent and prospect" and he's doing 100mph, drunk, in his Ferarri that your kids are safely at home. A new defence plea then "Talent and prospect". Lets just hope that when this moron reaches the pinnicle of his "talent and prospect" and he's doing 100mph, drunk, in his Ferarri that your kids are safely at home. All i can say to that is i know who wrote this and my Ninja's are on their way to dealing with it. By this point i had decided it was a safe idea to get my CI's back on the case of Murtagh football, a while passed wih no word untill i was informed that he had signed to Yeovil Town a struggling League 1 team, relief, he hadn't blown it his ball dreams hadnt deflated like a true fiens weight, he hadnt burnt out or been tossed out like most other inner city football prospects, he was still very much a footballer and still very much on his way to the top, you know which made me happy, not like wierd happy like im pinnin all my hopes on him, i mean hey i got my own shit goin ya kna' ima busy guy.....i do stuff.....music stuff.............i blog...But it was reassuring to know that I hadnt cocked it up for him really. My happiness for the lad was doubled with just pure unpresidented pride just a couple of weeks ago whilst watching OL' 83 when i saw the highlights of The game between Yeovil Town and Milwall Fc, partly because Yeovil won and FUCK MILWALL but mainly because i was given a glimpse o fyoung Murtagh playing in a lovely through ball for the wining goal on a television set infornt of 6000 at the stadium aswell as the hundreds of thousands, possibly millions who tune into sky sports news every single day. In summary of this post.....HE MADE IT...THANKS TO ME.
I must also pay an homage to young Kieron Cadogan who is another friend of mine, whom however i have not known as long and as well as Mr Murtagh i still consider a good friend had a debut performance for none other than Crystal Palace fortenight ago, which is not only dope because Crystal Palace are the South London team that fucking rep, but also because Niel Warnock is the king of bringing through the English Talent and Kieron couln't be at a better club (Except maybe Arsenal) But yet again my Pride and hapiness is doubled with an appearence on Sky Sports News for my boy and again added to when thr young fucking gangster scored in the dying minuites of the game aginst Cardiff to earn a valuable point for the Eagles.
This is the first installment of "K-Watch" stay tuned...........its too late......YOU CANT UNWATCHIT....what you know now you will know forever.
