Sons Fans Bravely Face ‘Endless Day of No Football’

May 10, 2013

NoFootballTotalDespairAN exclusive opinion survey conducted on behalf of the Sonstrust by the MadeupPoll organization has revealed that the top chosen activity for the first Saturday of the close season will be “moping around wishing there was a Dumbarton game on”. 

Other top choices include “moaning about the SPL”, “not bothering to watch the FA Cup Final” and “spreading rumours about who gaffer Ian Murray might be signing for next season.”

Those choosing to use this seemingly endless fitbaless desert to re-engage with domestic life told us they would spend their time “finding new excuses for not doing the garden” or “finding new excuses for not going to the shops.”

Respondents admitted that they had mostly not fine-tuned their excuses yet.  But one quipped:  “Actually, come to think of it,  I might volunteer to go to the shops, which are nearby, in order to avoid doing the garden – which is badly overgrown, and will take me ages of backbreaking work.”

At least one desperate Dumbarton fan [don’t worry, A**n, I promised not to tell anyone, and I’m a man of my word]  has come up with the idea of “getting married” to fill the deep void of a future Sons-free weekend.

But seriously, folks… What will YOU be doing on Saturdays — and for the really dedicated, Tuesday evenings — while you wait for those pre-season friendlies?  Apart from nabbing your season ticket at the ‘early bird’ rate and renewing your Sonstrust membership, obviously.

Let us know…

    Haha, yeah I give a running commentary when dribbling.

    ‘Crawford is past one, past two.. and puts it over from 5 yards’

    I dribble while giving a running commentary too. But that’s because I’m old.

    Relaxing in the house waching tv, only 1 game football to go to and that’s the Linlithgow rose cup final in Jine.

    Wishing the last two players on my wish list would hurry up and re sign, can’t stand the tension. Rx
