Who the hell wrote this report???

It was well written, clearly hadn't been 'lifted' from someone else's copy, made sense, no typos, seemed to me to be grammatically correct...

It even sounded like he / she was actually there!!!

I can feel a letter coming on...

Dear Echo,

Enjoyed the game, 1st half was very well matched, 2nd we seemed to go a bit flat and had to absorb a lot of pressure but clung on, despite a couple of goal mouth scrambles.

Fantastic set of penalties at the end from both sides, absolutely blasted with purpose and direction. The only two misses early on were from players on each side who deviated from that, their player with the old stumble run routine and ours with a softly placed one.

Good to see a number of first team players there in support too.
