History FC

After a tumultuous season of highs and lows, the mighty boys in blue march on down the final straight towards what is set to be a nail-biting season finale. Having enjoyed a first half of the season battling for the top spot, losing only two games and conceding seven goals, the men in sky blue looked set to finish for the Christmas break, as our European counterparts insist upon, in the clouds. Settling back into our slick football was never going to be easy after a festive intake of stuffing, pigs in blankets and Lynx Africa. The team reunited carrying an extra stone or two for their first test of 2017, no not January exams but the Germans. Having lost versatile winger Ollie Brown, remember the name, to some post-Christmas blues, the team continued their winning ways with a convincing 5-1 victory over Deutsche Gesellschaft. However, after a slight dip in form, the liquid football of History seems to have evaporated as the title race heats up. Losing our last two games has hit our confidence, it’ll take the work of an incredible and charismatic captain to guide History back onto the path of success, until then they’ll have to settle for your humble reporter. With six games remaining it’s all to play for. With the Premier League all but wrapped up by Chelsea, come and watch the real men in blue play the beautiful game down in the delightful area of Wythenshawe. If you don’t fancy the X41 bus, why not come and watch History FC take on the History Department at the Armitage on March 27th; I can’t promise you sunshine but can promise you have nothing better to do on a Monday at 6pm, plus it’s to raise money for our charity, Mind.
