Going for Gold

Postby Skandi Brudson on Thu May 17, 2018 4:59 pm

A little distraction for those of you fed up with the endless nonsense about top managers like Emery, etc. coming to West Ham (in the style of the rubbish TV quiz show ‘Going for Gold’:

Who am I?

I am a famous old football club who plays in my country’s premier league. I currently reside in a rented athletics stadium but it was at my former home that I enjoyed my finest hours.

Although I had some success in the ‘70s, the ‘60s is regarded as my golden age.

My last major success was the 1980 cup final when, playing in my away kit of all white, I beat a team from the capital 1-0, courtesy of a headed goal from an unusual source.

As a result of that success, I played in the following season’s European Cup Winners Cup competition but unfortunately was eliminated by an excellent Dinamo Tiblisi team.

Since then I’ve endured many ups and downs, relegations, promotions, a win in a lesser cup competition and a heartbreaking loss in the final of the major domestic cup competition in the mid noughties, by a late, controversial goal.

I continue to hope for better times ahead.

Well done Warp, it’s Waterford F.C.

Uncanny similarity isn’t it?
