GREAT stuff in Peru with Binacional running out 5-0 winners but there's trouble brewing closer to home.
Bury vs Colchester
I've not the time to get fully into the politics now but there's a cloud hanging over Gigg that is much more complex than the usual cold cover that blows down off the Pennines.
This isn't just a blot on the landscape – it's a big f*** off pill that is not uncommon but is so unfortunately timed it hurts.
For the first time in a long, long time the Shakers have not only been doing great – we've actually looked great and have blown pretty much everyone out of the water.
But football is a fickle game and when you live in the shadow of another 9 teams in a 30-mile radius that sit between the EPL and League Two then your fanbase and thus funds will always suffer.
So, once again, it looks looks like money and secure investment in Bury (or the lack off) will potentially ruin us – it's not my platform here to talk about what's going on but it stinks and sure as hell it will affect us today as it has done in the previous two games as more information leaks out.
One selection which pains me to post but I can potentially see a very decent Colchester side putting us to the sword as we travel the table in opposite directions.
- Colchester over 1.5 team goals
- (12-5, bet365) – 2pts
Sport Boys vs Real Potosi (8pm)
Anytime I see Real Potosi away from home my natural instinct is to back goals against them such is their abysmal form away from the second highest football stadium in the world in Potosi!
But this one may be different and despite their travelling form they usually grab at least a goal – something they have done in 100% of their last 6 away matches and in 100% of the last 4 H2Hs all within the last 12 months.
Sport Boys are not one of the better Bolivian outfits and don’t be deceived by their recent win at Aurora … they are utterly shocking!
