Wolves away


Recommended Posts





Over 20 London exiles made the train journey to Wolverhampton to watch Latics take on Wolves in the 3rd round of the FA cup. This was the biggest gathering of OASIS members so far this year and the songs, the beer, the world famous Virgin train sandwiches flowed all day long.


After meeting up with our Cardiff branch member(S) we headed to the ground (after making sure we took in a few of the local brews) in time for kick off.


The game was well balanced for the first twenty minutes then a well placed Warnie shot sent the travelling blue army crazy!! One nil OLDHAM.


Unfortunately two goals for Wolves in the closing stages of the first half sent the Latics into the sheds a goal down.


Shezza certainly worked his magic at half-time as it was a much stronger performance in the second half and this resulted in a great header from the Chris 'Horse' Hall some ten minutes from time to make it two all. Oldham looked the stronger to finding a winner ,with Wellens taking control in midfield, in the closing stages. But it was not to be as it finished a draw and we left the ground to the sounds of "oh when the blues" ringing in our ears.


After a few well earned beers it was time to catch the train home, where strangely enough the beer continued to flow. Many thanks must go to the two Geordie fans on the train home who taught us the correct wording to the 'Keano' song. Who would have thought it that after all these years the wrong words, between bites on prawn sandwiches, were being sung by the Mancs, sorry I mean tourists, down at Old Trafford...
