The Blue Army is on the march.

By alan cotton

West London Invasion is under weigh.

The battlefields are at The Quintin Hogg Memorial Ground home of Polytechnic FC and Chiswick Station will be under siege around 1pm today when the light infantry arrive -- maybe it should be the "tight" infantry as the troops are already assembled at the garrison at Beckenham.

No team enjoys support like the Bluebloods and a big crowd is expected today as the First team seek the victory that will crown an excellent season. A point will do to win the league but when did Wickham ever play for a draw? Never.

And dear old Quintin?
Was he the Hogg who became Baron Hailsham of Marleybone -- ie Quintin McGarel Hogg KG CH PC FRS. No idea what all those letters signify -- but I'm sure he was a lovely chap. Did they name the playing fields after him?

Or was it the Old Etonian, Quintin Hogg who died in 1903 after choking on a sausage. This Quintin won 2 caps for Scotland and played for the famous Wanderers team who won the FA Cup. My money is on this Quintin -- he sounds like a top sportsman and we will drink to his memory later after Mark Williams gets off the Cold List today by heading in the winner.

Enjoy the game today -- it's another historical football Saturday -- it will be a " big day out" that's a certainty. Come on you Bluebloods.
