It happened last summer - The match.

Extracts from this document...


It happened last summer- The Match Last summer, August 31st, my friend Robert and I were going to see the division one tie between Wimbledon and Leicester City. Robert and I both supported Wimbledon. The night before the match Robert and I had discussed, via telephone, what train station we were to set off from. We had arrived to the decision that we were to meet at twelve a clock at Cockfosters station, as this was an easy place for both of us to get to. But things turned out differently on the day. Robert obviously did not take our pre-organised station and time seriously or had not paid attention because he had failed to show up. I was already not in a good mood because it was a typical British wet, cold, miserable and gloomy summer day and therefore my mood was swaying from good to bad. So every little thing that got in my way made me more and more frustrated. At quarter to one I did not know where the hell he was and so I used my mobile and phoned him. ...read more.


This was due to the fact that Wimbledon was now about to move from their home to Milton Keynes. This would mean that these supporters would have to travel along time to get to their home. They were chanting ' No way MK (Milton Keynes)' A vibe inside me was telling me that I should not be going to watch the match, instead I should be protesting. In my mind the chant 'no way MK' reverberated. At this time my conscience attacked me from inside but Robert insisted that watching the match was the right thing to do. We entered the stadium fifteen minutes before kick off and sat on our given seats. The protesting was still proceeding and so there were not many supporters to watch the match. There were only two thousand supporters. Also other supporters stayed at their homes to demonstrate their anger against the proposed move to Milton Keynes. The bare stadium faced the start of yet another match and the soft sound made by those in the ground seemed quite insignificant when compared to the protest sounds outside. ...read more.


My heart was pumping out loud again and I was myself. As I joined with the chant' No way MK, No way MK, No way MK.' More and more supporters were coming from all directions to join in with the protest and so I was not alone. There were probably more than triple the supporters outside protesting than actually watching. As the match came to a close, the supporters came pouring out like ketchup in a glass bottle!! I then saw Robert and rejoined him. He was disappointed that I did not watch the whole match with him but knew the angle from which I was coming from. As the match stopped the protesting also stopped so it was time for us to head home. We later on arrived at home. I was happy and I wished that I had protested from the beginning but was glad that I came to my senses eventually. I was exhausted and tired and could not even keep my eyes open. My friend was even happier than I was because his local side from birth won by two goals. Nikhil Shah 16th September 2002 ...read more.
