Following the thumping of Darlington's Under 11s side and the sneaked 1-0 win versus Huddersfield's Mixed Martial Arts team, The 'Hughton Heroes' were battered in a fashion beyond embarassing. A 'team' with a combined wage bill approaching £1m a week were given the total runaround against *shock horror* players with pride.
We started with the following 11 clad in custard cream:
Krul; Beye, S Taylor, Coloccini, Enrique; Gutierrez, Barton, Smith, Duff; Nolan; Martins.
To me, in the unlikely event no-one leaves, this wouldn't be too far away from the strongest eleven come August 8th. The possibilities of the likes of Bassong and Ranger being involved hardly adds a lot to the line up - one up front v Orient? F*cking hell.
We went 2-0 down fairly quickly. Smith and a dubious Thornton penalty did the early damage, despite chances for Beye and Nolan. Barton dragged one back from the spot following a foul on Martins, before their keeper Jones pulled off a great save from Nolan.
Half time came and went with the usual raft of pre-season substitutions. However the unravelling soon came with goals from McGleish, Mkandawire, Jarvis and Harry Baker consigning us to the ultimate humiliation.
Plus points to take? It can't get *much* worse. Also just about our whole squad got some exposure to the knackering - Forster, Tozer, Lough, Geremi, Kadar, Xisco, Guthrie, LuaLua and Carroll were all subbed on at various intervals.
Negatives? Two weeks today we'll potentially be unravelling on the BBC. Oh joys...
