Well, it's the big one. Forget El Classico, for get the Manchester Derby, forget the London Derby.....
Yep.... the glue sniffing, wine soaked degenerates of Chelmsford take on the mighty Iron.
Boxing Day: Chelmsford City v Braintree Town
New Year's Day: Braintree Town v Chelmsford City
Braintree are currently in 11th place in the National League South and Chelmsford are 12th, two points behind.
Six points and bragging rights are up for grabs over the next few days.
These are the days we live for.
I always hate this derby day and this year there are two within a short space of time - Boxing Day and New Year's Day. The police will have a hard time and, as usual, all police leave has been cancelled. Chelmsford and Braintree - this is more than just football, its war. One can't escape the religious, racial and nationalistic tensions that these encounters engender. It's a real north vs south clash, with the "Tough northern B*****s" from Braintree against the "southern softies" of Chelmsford. Tell me when its over - I'm staying in doors.....
We wuz robbed...
I love the smell of TOAW in the morning...
