Hutch's Patch(featured image)

Rob Hutchison is a home and away regular and manages to encapsulate each of our players’ performances in the briefest of single word summaries. He was at Kenilworth Road yesterday to witness a hard fought draw with a Luton Town side who could be there or there abouts when the League 1 title is being […]

Hutch’s patch from Leeds: Olivia checks in as we (just about) check out

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

Rob Hutchison was driving, he told Olivia, who texted Colin, who group e-mailed asking if anyone could put this up and I (John Mac) picked up the message. That’s teamwork. Did we see any teamwork at Elland Road? I thought we were OK, Pete’s seven word text suggests we did and now we have some […]

Hutch’s one word ratings from Millwall, with a message for Fletcher

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Rob Hutchison, or maybe his daughter Olivia, sent his post-match verdict to M Salut, who sent it on to me. Short and sweet it is; like the aforementioned Olivia and certainly not like me or that other Short we’ve come to question. And all the better for that: (more…)

Hutch’s one-worders from Bristol City 3-3 SAFC. How equaliser made a daughter’s day

Olivia

Usually, if he’s there, Rob Hutchison dictates one-word player-by-player verdicts and his daughter Olivia passes them on to us. Today, he was absent. She was there – and how she enjoyed the last few minutes of a game we once seems destined to lose by a cricket score. ‘The worst 45 minutes of football followed […]

Hutch’s one-word ratings from Cardiff: hang your heads in shame Sunderland

Rob Hutchison

Olivia Hutchison has done nothing to deserve the pain inflicted on her by Sunderland AFC when she goes with her dad, Rob, to games, mostly away since they live in the south. Last year, you’ll recall, she even jumped out of a plane to raise funds for the Bradley Lowery fund. Yet today she was […]

John McCormick writes: Rob Hutchison did his one-words verdicts, passed them to Olivia, who forwarded them to M Salut, who put them into an email in the hope that someone would be able to get them up before tomorrow, which will be very busy. And I just happened to pick up the e-mail. Teamwork, eh. […]

Monsieur Salut writes: had I been able to make it – up for me, from London – for Chris Coleman’s first game in charge, I would have met up with not only Peter Sixsmith but Rob Hutchison and his daughter Olivia, all three familiar figures around these parts. My apologies for absence reached the Hutchisons […]

Hutch’s Hull City verdict: Olivia says hello, and keep clear of the Balti pies

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

Rob Hutchison: far away at the time. Still travelling Hutch is back. If not in person then via a very welcome proxy. Olivia, Rob Hutchison‘s daughter, texted Colin post-game with a message and his one-word verdicts on our performances today. First, the message: One wordies are back! A long way to go to give up […]

Hutch’s Patch post-Chelsea: ‘culpable, fragile, tragic’ – match the words and players

Rob Hutchison

Rob Hutchison – inexplicably renamed Ron when this first appeared – gets to lots of games, almost all of them away since he’s exiled in the south. He and his daughter, Olivia, enjoy the day out, like meeting up with old and new friends and then – for the most part – endure the football. […]
