Here's Johnny!

Johnny Martin    Mitchell Cole

St Albans City 0-2 Stevenage Borough

JOHNNY Martin continued Stevenage's fine run of results this month to settle a dire derby at Clarence Park.

Martin's strike extended Borough's unbeaten sequence to eight, with Premiership giants Spurs the only team to have defeated them pre-season.

The summer signing capitalised on some poor Saints defending in the dying moments of the first half to turn sharply on the edge of the area, compose himself and rifle the ball left-footed into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

After a scrappy opening, the visitors had taken the lead in farcical circumstances on the quarter-hour. Paul Bruce, attempting to clear his lines, sliced the ball into his own net, the ball looping up beyond the despairing, agonising dive of keeper James Waite.

James Fayne, meanwhile, had St Albans' best chance going forward midway through the first half, rounding Stevenage number one Alan Julian only to have his shot blocked by John Nutter's fearless lunge.

But in truth the hosts were never in the game, and should have been finished off 16 minutes from time, saved only by the poor technique of Mitchell Cole - clean through and with only the keeper to beat - who leant back and blazed the ball high over the bar.

Star Man: Martin (Stevenage); Entertainment: *

Pimpin’ ain’t easy unless you’re Al Sharpton and poor American’s are your prostitutes!

98.7 Kiss FM New York - Hi, this is Reverend Al Sharpton we’re calling on our community to come forward and become partners for justice. In the next 30 days we’re calling on 100,000 people to become justice partners with the National Action Network by going to our website or mailing “ten dollars” to keep the justice movement on track. If it’s racial profiling, if it’s police misconduct, if it’s Don Imus, wherever it is all over the country, we’re there. We need you to be a partner with just “ten dollars” to keep justice on track. No justice, no piece!

What you’ve read above is Al Sharpton calling out to poor people in New York City to send him a million dollars ($10 dollars a piece) so that he can fly around the country to reprimand white men who say something or do something racist.

If Al Sharpton wants to play the role of a mammy by chastising good ol’ white-boys after they have misbehaved then there’s enough racism in New York City for him to “address” and to give racist, within the white community, a piece of his mind….
