TAPIBAW No 31 - Fisher Athletic (England)
||It's all gone
off here, as the Fish get battered in an away match at Merthyr last
season. Your roving reporter was in the heart of London's dockland on
Saturday to see the boys from Surrey Docks win their opening FA Cup
game of the season 3-0 against Ashford Town.
The current Fish manager following on from such illustrious figures as
Malcolm Allison is Keith "Rhino" Stevens, a cult player in
his Millwall days. Stroll on.
TAPIBAW No 32 - AC Siena (Italy)
||To the scenic Tuscany
region of Italy this time, and the Serie B side Siena, who have made a
dreadful start to the new season with only one point from a goalless
draw to show from their four games. Not surprisingly they're bottom of
the league, along with fallen giants Sampdoria.
TAPIBAW No 33 - Lokomotiv Plovdiv (Bulgaria)
||The club with the best
crowd in Bulgaria says our contact Svetozar Georgiev, and let's face
it, who are we to argue?
Plovdiv are currently 3rd in the Bulgarian League, behind Sofia giants
Levski and CSKA.
TAPIBAW No 34 - Hradec Kralove (Czech Republic)
||Things haven't going too
well for our latest set of spotlight kids, but after conceding 14
goals in their opening three games of the season, things have started
Four successive home wins without conceding a goal have seen them
climb up to 11th spot (or 6th bottom in the old money.)
However, Hradec face a test this Sunday when they entertain current
second-place side Bohemians of Prague. Rather bizarrely, Bohemians
incorporate a kangaroo in their club badge, as a tribute to a gift one
of their touring sides once returned with - that must have been a
cracking tour; imagine having a few pints and waking up next to one of
them the day after....
TAPIBAW No 35 - Moulton Magpies
||Hailing from the
Northamptonshire village of Moulton, the Magpies have been in
existence since 1996, when Sam Torpey established the club.
Our photo shows the prolific
striker Daniel Torpey, who had racked up 119 goals in only 127
games by the end of last season. Sadly it looks as if his magic touch
is missing from the side this time out - presumably as he's now too
old, unless he's discovered some new vices, like drink, girls or
Championship Manager 2....
