Very, very funny!, but somewhat ironic for me as I travelled to Braintree for the game before Christmas, ( I live about 30 miles away). The weather had been so stable, that it never struck me to check before leaving that the game may not be on, my garden was certainly playable!. Anyway I got there and parked up near the Orange Tree pub (Wrexham fans usual haunt), and thinking back, yes I parked unusually close to the pub, and went in for a swift one with about 40 mins to kick off, only to find I was the only one who had bothered to attend!!. Gradually with the assistance of Sky sports the ugly realisation gripped me!!, Waterlogged My Arse!!.
