'Forget Bob the Builder it is Bob Green who we should be toasting!' exclaimed Penny to Terry as she arrived back breathless from Upton Park where the Hammers had drawn 1 - 1 with Fulham.
'In the last two games Bob Green has earned us four points on his own. He had a fantastic game against Tottenham and now was even better against Fulham. We might be bottom of the league but another win and we will be mid league.'
'My - you have found a hero. You weren't so keen on Bob during the World Cup.'
'We all make mistakes and with Goalies mistakes make more impact. Their saves can make more impact too.'
'So how was Dad?'
'Great. He had a good time. He had a huge cheer at West Hams goal from Piquane - there's another hero. Four goals in recent games.'
'He didn't blast your ear with his politics did he?'
'A bit, but I don't mind. I agree with some of the things he said.'
'Well he said it was total crap to say Ed Miliband was a Red. He thought he was a bit less right wing than Blair and his brother but only by the smallest amount.'
'And you think he's right?'
'This Red Ed rubbish gets on my nerves. It is so pathetic and shows some people are totally ignorant of real politics.'
'Anyway, Penny, I got on well with that cousin of Mum's. But he had to go quite early to get to the News of the World for the football reports to edit.'
'He might get you along one week, maybe.'
'He's going to ask. He thinks they will be interested in me because of my football experience.'
'You've got to build on what you've achieved Terry. What's comng up next?'
'Another game for Orient's under sixteens next Saturday at Brighton. You could come down to the seaside, Penny.'
'That would be great. Can I come on the bus with you.'
'I'm not sure. I'll ask. You may have to get a train or perhaps your Mum or Dad would take you and see the match as well.'
'I'll organise that.'
