Match Report 9th February 2022 v Giffnock (away) – West Squash Division 1

February 10, 2022 Leave a comment
M.O.T.M.

Giffnock are 2nd in the Division so this was going to be a tough one tonight and so it proved!

When I arrived I met Stuart Pitt who said we were playing each other tonight as he munched a box of pasta. Obviously carb loading for a tough 5 setter against me as he’s heard about how fit I am (I’m only one vowel away from being ‘fit’!)

Talking of which, the battle of the heavyweights was on first, as Ollie (Millen) took on Mark Coyle at No.5. Mark obviously loves the home courts and Ollie got involved in playing his game a bit too much early on to lose the 1st game. However, when he slowed it down, he had much more success and maybe should have picked up a team point right there. Unfortunately, Ollie narrowly lost the 2nd game 13-15 and the match slipped away after that 3-0 to Mark and a good performance.

I was talking to Garry Blanchflower and Kenny ‘penalty point against ‘ Hardy in-between games and as the insults were flying and they told me I was rubbish, I told them both, “I used to be Jason Broadberry you know!”

I went on next and Stuart had obviously changed his mind about playing me, as I was now up against Ben Mazzucco at No.2. I remembered that he liked to boast (a lot), so I thought, ‘be ready for that!’ Unfortunately, I didn’t reckon on how well he did it, as well as the great drops (and many other shots). The bottom line is that he was far too good last night and won 3-0. I think I’d have to play him a few more times just to work out what the hell was going on! Mind you he’s not lost many in the league this year, so what can you do!

Next up was Chris (Murphy) v James Singh – a lot of tough matches for Chris this season against guys that are playing full time. However, Chris is so difficult to read on court and he can always create problems in every match. This time it was game 2, when at around 8-7 you could see that Chris could sense the finish line! Slightly helped by a 50/50 game-ball ‘call’, he walked off court at 1-1 leaving James to argue the call with the ref….. Ollie! (Nae chance!!).

Normal business was resumed after this (although the 3rd was close) and James won the next 2 games to take the match 3-1

At No.3 Cammy (Colquhoun) and Stuart Pitt claimed the court next. Hamish was a bit annoyed about this as he’s turned up especially early (for him) tonight at 7.20pm!!! So he used the time to nip home and get a change of clothes and a towel, which he hadn’t brought with him! (Ollie’s influence is definitely rubbing off on him).

Well Cammy and Stu would obviously be on for about 2 hours anyway, right? Wrong! Tonight was Stuarts’s night and he had a point to prove on his home courts. Cammy tore around the court as usual, but Stu was in control to take all 3 games (3-0). Cammy needs to regain his determination for not letting the opponent dictate too much, but after he conceded that he was ‘happy with the run’, he asked if I’d meet him in the park and throw a frisbee for him to chase sometime!

Hamish (Buchanan) and Neill Morris were on last at No.4 and this was a great ‘age v youth’ contest (Naill is really old!). Hamish upset Nial’s momentum to take the 1st game, but the experience was turned on in the next 2 and so Hamish found himself 2-1 down. However a great determined performance in the 4th and 5th games turned things on it’s head and Hamish played an absolute blinder to win the match 3-2. The whole team, and travelling support, were impressed and we all agreed that this was the best he’d ever played, so we bought him a pint to celebrate (and the fact it was the first time he was ‘legally’ allowed a pint!). Lovely pizza and chips for dinner (posh ones obs as we were at Giffers!) and they even had Erdinger for me! But it was not long, before we were on our way back to Whitecraigs for a game of darts to commiserate our loss (and to be regaled with Ollie’s chat; that only got him in trouble a few times!) ……. Hamish’s team won the darts as well!


Match Report 2nd February 2022 v S.S.R.C. (home) – West Squash Division 1

Who’d have thought trying to get a squash team out in Glasgow when the re-arranged “Old Firm” match was on would be a good idea? So, we were massively stretched this week with six players missing from the 1st and 2nd teams alone!

S.S.R.C. were our opponents tonight and they had a full-strength team out (obviously not a Teddy bear or Celt among them!). First on was Ollie (who was desperate to watch the match) against Joe Ewan at No.3. – Ollie was getting his excuses in early with chat of a side-strain, which was causing definite internal bleeding and scarring!! Then he goes on court and win’s the first game! (no more sympathy!). His opponent, Joe, upped the physical pressure in the 2nd game and stormed it 11-3. Ollie’s side must really have been hurting as he said he would probably have to retire if it didn’t get much better – and unfortunately that’s what happened in the 3rd game – so Joe took the tie 3-1 by retirement.

At the same time as this match was going on, one of our 1st team debutants, Peter (Meulemans) was up against an on-form Jesse Mills at No.4. The match seemed very close 10-12 8-11 in the first two games, but Jesse took them both. Could Peter convert his chances to get a massive 1st team point? Well, a great performance in the 3rd game meant he did exactly that. However, Jesse shut the door in the 4th and won the match 3-1 – great team point though!

Our second debutante took to the court at No.5 as Jenn Saldana (normally a 3rd team stalwart) took on Brian Robertson. No surprises here as Brian was too experienced, but Jenn got better and better as the match went on 4-11 6-11 7-11 (maybe if it were the best of 9 she’d have sneaked the 5th!).

I was both looking forward to… and not looking forward to my match at No.1 v Ali Prott. I suspected that if he decided to play with all guns blazing, I’d probably only get a point or two in total! However, he didn’t do that, but instead ran me around until I sounded like a smoker with emphysema. Great fun and I definitely got one point on my own (an amazing backhand drop!). 3-0 to Ali and I look forward to following his squash career.

Last on was Cammy (Colquhoun) v Dan Wearing at No.2. I though Cammy could chase everything down and maybe sneak a game or two against Dan, however, he wasn’t at his meanest today and Dan played very controlled squash to win 3-0 (although at 9-3 up in the 3rd Dan was relieved to get over the line 12-10!).

So into the ‘Back Bar’ for pasta bake and garlic bread and the second half of the Old Firm match. Much like the squash, the locals didn’t look too happy with the score-line (although I think our fight was better!)


Match Report 26th January 2022 v Scoutstoun (away) – West Squash Division 1

Seems like we’re “Back 2 Squash” every other month at the moment, but last night saw us back to West League squash and not a ‘garden party’ in sight as we visited Scotstoun!

Ollie was complaining that he would be rubbish tonight as he’s just got the booster jab and his arm was really sore. He couldn’t lift it very high without extreme pain, so the whole team were very concerned, right up to the point we asked why (as a right hander) he didn’t get the shot in his left arm? Apparently, he did…so no further sympathy was forthcoming.

I’ve never played on the Scotstoun courts, so was looking forward to it (and apparently they are getting new courts in the not-too-distant future as well). It was great to see five ‘ex-David Lloyd West End’ players there, it was like old times (and most of them won their matches!).

First on tonight were the No.4s & 5s – and Scotstoun had young Robyn McAlpine at No.5 v Ollie (Millen) and at No.4 we had Hamish (Buchannan) v James Crowhurst. Ollie was well out of sorts, but take nothing away from Robyn, she played really well and did exactly what she needed to win all three games. Meanwhile Hamish and James (having had a massive 2-3 in the first-half) were inevitably going to have a hum-dinger! And so it proved, as it went to the fifth and both opponents were looking like they had ‘wander’d mony a weary fit’. However, Hamish got revenge tonight and just held on to win the last game 11-9. He’ll be able to celebrate his 18th birthday in style with that win in the bank – so the team are looking forward to getting our invites to the party soon (must have got lost in the post!).

Next on at No.1 was Chris (Murphy) v John Meehan and there was no massive surprise to see that an athlete playing full-time got the better of Chris. There were, however, some great rallies and quality squash to watch from both players, but there was only going to be one winner here (3-0 to John).

O.M.D.G. – Sandy McCluskey or Andy Niven

I was on next and there was a bit of chat beforehand about how Sandy (Niven) has been looking forward to this one. Excellent!! It wasn’t long into the first game that I remembered the game plan and managed to win the first, before Sandy turned things around to level things up 1-1. The rest of the match (minus ‘match- ball’) I was in control, but at 10-5 up Sandy suddenly turned the turbo boost on! The next few minutes made me very nervous as he made his way back to 10-10 and then had a game-ball of his own, but with a bit of luck I managed to sneak over the line for a 3-1 victory. Someone mentioned that Sandy could do with a haircut, but I reckon he looks a bit like that bloke in O.M.D. from the 80s!

So the match was tied at 2-2 and the No.2s went on last with Cammy (Colquhoun) v Finlay McGhee. At 1-1 I went for a shower and told the team that I’d be back for the 5th game (and guess what!). And so to the 5th with the whole evening’s match points at 11-8 to Scotstoun! Both players were chasing for all they were worth with the sweat dripping off them. A titanic battle with Fin using his short cross-court kill to great effect and Cammy was retrieving like a border collie, however, I think the main difference tonight was the court and Fin knew how to play it just a bit better than Cammy and he brought the match home 11-5 for a 3-2 win.

Well, you can’t win them all (15-8 loss) so as the traditional Scottish Burns Supper fare was served up (a ruby & pizza!) the guys loaded their plates and tucked in.

We were soon back on the expressway making our way back to Whitecraigs for a consolation beer in the newly re-opened “Back 2 the Back-Bar”. The chat on the way home was “restaurants to take your girlfriend to” and ‘Bread Meats Bread’ was the favourite with the very similarly-titled ‘Burger Meats Bun’ a close second, if it hadn’t shut 3 years ago!


Match Report 8th December 2021 v Strathgryffe (home) – West Squash Division 1

Last match of the first half and Strathgryffe came calling.

I got the early start this week and the flashing squash racket of Ross ‘Red’ Lorry awaited me. It was all out attack from point one and I had to implement “anti-serve return status” immediately, after Ross dispatched the first few into the nic! This was destined to be a quick match, with short rallies and so it proved – I think I was fortunate that Ross went for so much, as he also made a few mistakes and I managed to keep the lead in the individual games to win 3-0

Next on at No. 1 was Chris (Murphy) v Dave ‘Laminator’ McCormick – at first sight this looked a bit of a mismatch, but Chris was slow to get going and Dave played really well, so a tight 11-8 to Chris was followed by an even tighter 10-12 to Dave. However, after that Chris moved up a gear (from 1st to 2nd! 😊 ) and finished the match off 3-1. Really good point for Dave though.

Ollie (Millen) pulled rank on Hamish and stole the court next, to play Craig Wright at No.5. This was another good match up and although Ollie won the first 2 games they were both close. Craig got the vital lead in the 3rd with some great determined play and good volleying and snuck home, but Ollie took control of the 4th to bring home the match 3-1 on fitness! (no really!)

Hamish (Buchannan) finally got the court to play Scott Adams at No.4 next and at 23-23 in the 1st, he didn’t want to let it go! What a 1st game this was! Both players were feral in their desire to hammer the ball and win the game, but Scott just held on to win 25-23. Hamish changed his game to be in control to win the 2nd and Scott did much the same in the 3rd. Unfortunately for us it looked like Hamish didn’t believe he could win the last one and so lost 3-1. Entertaining match to watch however & M.O.T.M. to Scott!

Last up was Cammy (Colquhoun) v James Dare at No.3. Cammy looked in charge of this match and James looked a bit tentative going forward. However, when James was on the ball, he had Cammy doing quite a few court sprints (but then Cammy loves doing court sprints, so he was happy to chase and chase!!). In the end a reasonably convincing win for Cammy 3-0, but I could see a that he was disappointed that the match didn’t go on for an hour!

So up to the bar to find the rest of the team (doing not very much) and after a coldish shower we had chili & rice for dinner with a large triangular crisp thing which was excellent. So a 16-5 win and around a mid-table finish to the 1st half.

Happy Christmas and Hogmanay when it comes and looking forward to seeing the 2nd half (and the other half!).


Match Report 1sh Dec. 2021 Whitecraigs LT&SC away v Western (Div 1. West of Scotland Squash)

Vapor

An away match last night and Western are like a box of chocolates….. you never know what you’re going to get!

Martin Woods was there to greet us and he was playing No.4 tonight (yeah I know!), so he went on first v Ollie (Millen) and I went on at the same time at No.1 this week (no Chris) v Robert Adam. I’m not sure what happened in Ollies game except to say he got dispatched 3-0. He seemed to be playing better by the 3rd game, but no points this week. 0-3 down.

On the other court Robert and I were having a right old ding-dong. We’d largely decided to mark it ourselves as both of us agreed to disagree with a few of the decisions on offer. This made for a very pleasant game. Robert seemed in control in the 1st & 3rd games, and I nicked the 2nd & 4th on tie breaks to take it to a 5th (when I got out of the court after the 4th their No.3 (Ben) was waiting to go on assuming I’d lost! Bloody Cheek! 😊 ). However the last game was a step too far for me, so Robert won 3-2.

When I got back to the other court – gently fuming! – Cammy (Colquhoun) was 0-2 down against Scott Hay at No.2. I hadn’t seen the game, so I just told him what I would do against Scott and hoped for the best; bish-bosh he won the next two games, although with the scowl on his face that made him look like he lost them both! So between games, I told him to “bloody cheer up, as the match is yours to win……… and if you don’t win I’m taking your new Harrow Vapor away!” Another epic battle ensued, and Cammy still has his Vapor! (and the match cheered me up as well!)

I went for a shower and so missed the start of Hamish (Buchanan) v Ben Ramasubbu at No.3, but Hamish was 2-1 up and playing great when I returned. However, the very stylish Ben R used all his experience with 12-10 thrillers in both the 4th & 5th games to clinch victory from the jaws of defeat! Tough to take from Hamish, but I’m not sure he did much wrong, Ben just tied both his shoelaces at just the right times (for about a minute each time!) to give himself enough breath to sneak it! 3-2 win for Ben.

Last on at No.5 was our debutant Dave Simpson against veteran Kieran Pole. Nerves were a factor early on as Kieran took a 2-0 lead, but Dave was motoring by the end of the match and could easily have sneaked the 3rd game. If he had, he may well have ‘done a Cammy comeback’ – however Kieran just had enough to stop Dave using his hard-working game to gain that crucial foothold. 3-0 to Kieran.

So, Chinese takeaway for dinner and spicy noodles for me as the rest of the lads tucked into a about 20 other containers & bags. A strange seating arrangement at Western meant we all split up with our individual mountains of food, but we all thoroughly enjoyed the scran (and no one told me the result for the Merseyside derby so I was looking forward to seeing the footie when I got back. Although obviously not before a trip back to Whitecraigs for an Erdinger and Ollie regaling the car with all sorts of hilarious X-rated stories!)

So a 17-7 loss tonight, but a good hard match with three 3-2 results.


Match Report 24th November v The Rugby Club

November 25, 2021 Leave a comment

The Rugby Club came calling last night and they brought a solid team.

First on tonight was Ollie (Millen) v Allan McKay at No.4 and I didn’t see too much of this one, but Allan seemed to be in good control. It was a 3-1 victory for him, but Ollie did get a game and he’s looking much more solid every week. Of course we had to hear about how he should have won and would have won and will win next time, but it’s all on the day!

Next on was Hamish (Buchannan) v Dougie Emery at No.5. I thought Dougie may be too steady for Hamish tonight and ultimately I was right, but (after the 1st game) it was a really good fighting performance from Hamish. He got into a good rhythm and used his speed against Dougie to create a lot of problems. He also fought really hard to get 2 games, but ultimately Dougie brought home a close final game to secure the 3-2 win with the right shots at the right time.

I went on next against Adam Hunter at No.2 and I haven’t seen a squash ball walloped this fast in quite some time (on Adam’s forehand……… note to self: ‘don’t put it there much!’). On top of that, he was really quick! From outside the court he probably looked even quicker against someone like me! However, he didn’t like it when I slowed it down and so guess what?!?? Well, no one was more shocked than me, when I won the 1st game, and in truth the match appeared to be close for the next 3 games, but unfortunately Adam won them all. I think it was a fair result and I played OK, but would have been interesting if just one of those two crucial drop-shots of mine went up at the end of the 3rd and 4th games!!! Ho-hum!

The No.1s were on next as Chris (Murphy) took on Andrew Glen. These guys have known each other for ages and have played many times, which was good news for Andrew, as he has seen some of Chris’s ‘unusual’ shots and was prepared for them. That said, Chris did win the 1st game with some great thought-out shots, just at the right time (especially the strange reverse angle he played to get a game ball!). However in truth, Andrew was so quick and well drilled that it would have been some performance to win this one against him. As Andrew grew in confidence, he got his own trick-shots out with, for example, a great top-spin return of serve! Chris was particularly annoyed at this as he said he’s taught him that one! 3-1 to Andrew (I’m looking forward to seeing Andrew’s squash career progress and hopefully a very bright future).

Last on was Cammy (Colquhoun) v Andrew McBean. I didn’t see much of this, but it appears that Andrews was well on top and Cammy wasn’t able to get the length and width required to step up to a slightly higher level. Still a good learning curve for him and if he takes away the lessons learned it will stand him in good stead and improve his game.

No gourmet burgers tonight, but we were in for a treat with a choice of Lasagna for the carnies and Mac & Cheese on offer as well. Ollie’s plate was so full you couldn’t see the top of the plate at all, and Chris’s second portion was so impressive I had to take a snap! 😊

No one went home hungry tonight – and with three teams at home and two university visiting teams it was a great atmosphere. Another Uni lad told me I coached him when he was much younger (Andrew Turnbull) I didn’t immediately recognize him as he didn’t have that beard when I knew him!   


Match Report 17th Nov. 2021 Whitecraigs LT&SC home v Giffnock (Div 1. West of Scotland Squash)

November 18, 2021 Leave a comment
where does he get his energy?

Well there were no fireworks tonight and the result was just as you thought it might be against a Giffnock team on top of the West Squash Division 1 table, but none the less it was a great night out.

First on at No.1s was Chris (Murphy) v James Singh. This was a bit of a rammy and the first blow was traded by James with a racket in Chris’s face and this was closely followed by lots of bumping and barging. Chris returned the favour, with ball driven into James’s leg (a tad unnecessary) in the 3rd game. Overall, I’d say Chris managed to shake things up well, because I expected to see an exhibition of straight drives, volleys and control from James, but this was not to be. Despite this James won 3-0, but Chris has to be commended for forcing his game plan on the match and making the 1st and 3rd games really tight.

Next on I marked Hamish (Buchannan) v Ben Mazzucco. Ollie (Millen) had missed this court as he was faffing about looking for the less essential parts of any players equipment like ………. a racket, kit, and shoes! However, he managed to find his racket (in the bar obviously) and discovered his unwashed kit from last week – or by the stench, maybe the week before that! (both teams thought Ollie had left a ripe stilton in one of the pockets and were less than impressed by the lack of Febreze!)

Back on court with Hamish and Ben, it was great to see my old team-mate (Ben Mazz) tonight and his undeniable attacking style helped him throughout the match. Giffnock’s Stuart Pitt said to me “Did you teach him to play a boast every other shot when you were both at David Lloyd’s?” and he had a point (as I remembered sessions Ben and I had on the backhand boast). Ben won the match, by attacking with the boast (among many great shots) so it was a lesson well remembered! 3-1 to Ben.  

By the time I made it onto the next court to see Ollie’s game, he was 2-0 down against Niall Morris at No.5. However, when I watched the 3rd game, Ollie was really getting involved in every rally. I thought maybe Niall was trying to get away from Ollie’s fermenting kit, but actually Ollie was sticking in the rallies well (although he was hitting cross-court far too much). Niall “what’s a drop shot” Morris was moving the ball around really well himself and there were some great (and long) rallies where you just didn’t know if Niall was going to slot in another good length, or if he was merely going to hit one to the back!! 😊  

Ollie played well to pinch the 3rd game, but he seemed far too happy with himself at this point, so Niall finished things off a bit too easily in the 4th for my liking. But a good team point from Ollie 1-3.

Next on was Cammy (Colquhoun) v Stuart Pitt at No.3. Although it was really Cammy Pitt v Stu Colquhoun as both players’ styles, were a mirror of each other! This definitely had 3-2 written all over it!! So after the first game and a half I thought, I’ll play my match and come back to watch the 5th!

I was up against an old advisory in Owen ‘Haddaway’ Hadden and although he’s been better than me in the last 15 or so years, there was a time that I could beat him! And tonight was reminder of those days, as I wrestled a tight 3rd game off him and was close in the 4th, but ultimately Haddaway remembered “What is squash? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me no more!” – 3-1 to Owen (it always hurts!).

Straight back to the 3-2 match next door and what do you know, it was the 5th game and match ball! Niall was regretting taking the markers chair as his muscles were in atrophy, and apparently Cammy had a big chance at 9-8 up in this game, but could only find the floor with his drop! So a good 2 points to the cause and time to hit the back-bar for burgers and chips.

Someone had put an old Man City game on the telly (the Agueroooooooooooooooo! one) which was played in 2012 ….. during the day …….. and James asked if it was on live! Stick to squash big-yin! Just then there was large ‘clang’ on the floor as Ollie dropped the biggest name he could with his ‘pint with Neil Lennon’ story. Everyone was gripped as they’d never heard it before, well not in the past 20 mins anyway! Match result was 18-5 but it was against the Division leaders so could have been worse.


Match Report 10th Nov. 2021 Whitecraigs LT&SC away v S.S.R.C. (Div 1. West of Scotland Squash)

November 11, 2021 Leave a comment

Scotland & England were both out of the 20/20 Cricket World Cup (England having lost an hour or so before we headed north of COP26 to take on SSRC tonight.

Have you ever actually played a match in the correct ‘Manfred Man’ order i.e. No.5, 4, 3, 2, 1? Me either, but that’s what happened tonight, at a packed Maryhill club, with other matches including our 5th team, making it a great atmosphere.

Ready, steady, go! On at No.5 was the Mighty Millen – or Ollie as he’s better-known v Jesse Mills. Normally I’d say that Jesse is quite capable of beating himself, but something had changed! Ollie battled well and even had his chances to get involved in a tough battle, to see where that took him. However, tonight Jesse was all over the court and kept Ollie quiet with his great retrieving and decent length. Ollie wasn’t able to keep the ball’s width tight enough and Jesse countered with a good short game to punish anything loose. Watch out ‘West Squash’, ‘he looks good, he looks fine’ (well his squash does!). 3-1 win to Jesse.

Next on was Hamish (Buchanan) against Brian ‘Robbo’ Robertson. Brian was impressive against Hamish and his dying length to both back corners was excellent. Hamish displayed his normal frequent tins, but I thought he could have kept Brian on court longer and examined his fitness much more, especially as Robbo was giving him about 40-odd years! Unfortunately, this wasn’t to be and Brian ran away with a 3-0 win (I wonder how good I’ll be when I’m as old as Brian? Well I’ve got 20 or so years to find out!!?!?!?!).

The No.3s were on next, as Cammy (Colquhoun) took on Joe Ewan. Joe won the 1st game easily (11-1 or so) and so I went to warm up for my match against Dan Wearing thinking this would be a very short match!

I was chatting to several people, during my warmup and someone asked:

‘How do you think you’ll do against Dan tonight?,’ but before I could answer, SSRC’s Scotty Mowat said:

‘You’ll get pumped!’ I had to concede that he was probably right. However, having thought about it much more, I realise that coming from Scott, it was probably more the old adage that ‘Even a stopped clock is right twice a day!’

When I came back to Cammy’s match, he was playing with a new racket and was 2-1 up! Where did he come from, where did Joe go? I’m not sure the new Harrow Vapor can take the credit, but Cammy was a different player. He’d pinned Joe to the back and stopped him taking control of the ‘T’. Now the attritional war was being won by Cammy and on top of this, his backhand volley drops and hard/quick length were impressive and forcing errors from Joe. 3-1 to Cammy.

Dan and I were on next and the match went much the way both I (and Scotty M) thought it would. Dan was too good from the start, taking the first easily. I did much better in the second game, by taking my ‘between game’ advice from Ollie – and getting the ball behind Dan much more. However, it only delayed the inevitable, as I lost the match 3-0.

Later on, Scotty Mowat told me that I’d get two veggie pies tonight for dinner, but he was wrong, so he must have got something else right earlier on in the day to confirm the ‘Stopped Clock’ saying – which seems very unlikely! (or maybe Scott works off a clock that doesn’t have an a.m. because he’s ‘anti 24 hours’ or something equally bizarre, knowing Scotty!).

Last on were the No.1s as Chris (Murphy) took on Ali Prott, who must be pushing the top 5 in Scotland – this would be some workout for Chris! Unfortunately, Ali was all over this match and even when Chris did get on the ‘T’ another well honed shot came back at him, putting him immediately under pressure again. There was a point in the second game where there was a glimmer of hope at 6-5, but Ali soon shut that door and went on to win the match 3-0.

Mushroom pie, beans & chips for dinner (Scotch pie for the ‘normals’) and cake to finish. With quite a few tins of Tennent’s in him, Ollie was on good form, but when I told him earlier to get the ‘T’ as much as possible tonight, it wasn’t exactly what I meant!
