The Beast from East almost put pay to an astonishing run of c.200 week's of consecutive F&O matches but even the artic minus -6 temperatures weren't enough, as a hastily arranged game was arranged inside at King Alfred.
With Lamprell desperate to rid himself of his Bukake porn downloads it meant the commandant with 60 second ab belt came in for his 4th appearance.
Bahrami who has a knack of only inviting players slower than him, which is quite some feat, brought in ageing Matt Hyams who had to have a hot bath before the game to try and avoid injury. The hot bath wasn't enough as the creaking veteran made it to 12 minutes before his calf gave out and he spent the rest of the evening in goal.
With veterans vs it took the new comers a while to adjust to the rapid pace of the F&O legends. Bish, bang, bosh it was 3-0 in two minutes as Bibs started the game on fire. Whether they took their foot of the pedal the game very quickly turned around with Edwards the main threat. With about fifteen minutes gone it was 4-4 and the game back in the balance after Edwards and the returning Williams both scored.
The commandant was enjoying the freedom of the penalty area but unfortunately for the Iranian his goals were chalked off despite his continued celebrations.
Brench was doing his best to get Bibs back on track scoring a fine goal, coupled with rallying cry.
The KoW who has been having a tough time at BACA of late was getting in on the act scoring five and playing a blinder to keep bibs on top.
At 7-7 the game was still relatively even but then Bibs pulled away and the goals flashed past Hyams in goal. I think the game ended 14-9 although Brench in the pub felt he scored 8. With Macleod scoring five and a count up in the pub I think the MOTM king is slightly over exaggerating his performance on this occasion. MOTM this time was unanimous as Macleod took it comfortably.
We were soon joined in the pub by former Brighton manager Mark McGhee who had heard about the KoW performance and was hoping to sign him as a free agent until the end of the season to aide Barnet in their relegation scrap. Unfortunately for McGhee and Barnet the King had departed and the chance to sign the F&O predator had passed.
