Premier League Meeting of Greenygrey Goalie Kits

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy-satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. As reported in the sports section of this very blog early football season, Reading FC are playing with a greenygrey goalie kit in the English Premier League this season.

Newcastle Goalie Kit

Since then, through my intrepid research, we have noticed that Newcastle are also playing with a greenygrey goalie kit. This darker greenygrey version ¬†is Newcastle’s away goalie kit.

 Newcastle v Reading

The two greenygrey goalie kits could have met on Saturday, when Newcastle played Reading, but Newcastle played in their home kit, with the goalie kit grey and blue.

Reading wore their greenygrey goalie kit and won a surprise 2-1 victory.

Newcastle and Reading Seasons

Although we could claim the greenygrey goalie kit played a decisive role in Reading’s victory, we don’t think it played any part really.

We also don’t think the greenygrey goalie kits have played a part in Newcastle and Reading being in the lower half of the league.

Reading were expected to struggle this season, while Newcastle have had multiple outfield injuries. The goalies have been on form for both teams, and done the greenygrey goalie kits proud.

Meeting of Greenygrey Goalies

Following a sudden burst of super-intrepidness, the fact that it’s the second half of the Premier League now, and Newcastle’s greenygrey goalie kit is the away one, set me off in search for images from the Reading V Newcastle game earlier in the season.

And lo and behold, there was a meeting of the greenygrey goalies in the Premier League that day, September 29th, 2012:

Sorry to bring the news so late, but better late than never! I was still recovering from all the summer of sport coverage at the time!!

The game ended 2-2, so not a classic day for the greenygrey goalies, but quite fitting and nice that it ended all square.

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem wonders why you’re reading this in the top half and then tries to answer the conundrum in the bottom half, based on his own experiences. Thanks to Zemanta for providing a couple of nice greenygrey photos. Here’s the poem:
Breathing Works Both Ways
why spend time in my lifework
in this age
of digital liberty,
when we all
have the means for creativity,
to write, draw, photograph, speak and sing
exhaling, inhaling
for reading, looking, observing, listening and pleasure
sometimes we have to absorb
what is around
outside the mind
to learn how
others perceive the world we share
