They said it couldn’t be done. They said I was mad to attempt it. They even said it was a waste of my time.
They were probably right, but I have done it. I’ve somehow made it to the end of the season having provided you with a ramble before every game since the re-launch of the site in mid-August.
But enough about me. Let’s get this nightmare over with.
How are they getting on?
Notts County are in 12th place, 10 points off 6th. It’s been a messy sort of season. They were flying high earlier in the campaign, but a flurry of postponements left them points and games behind, and eventually it all proved too much for them to claw back.
They’ve won two on the bounce, including away at Doncaster last week which really caused the guys at the Keepmoat some issues. They’ll want to finish on a high, and coming up against a bunch of players who couldn’t give any shits about the season anymore, they’ll be feeling confident.
Who could cause us trouble?
They’ve done a good job of spreading the goals around the team, with six players grabbing seven or more, compared to our three. Nobody has hit the magical double-figures for them, though.
Jamal Campbell-Ryce is top scorer. He’s always a bit of a useful sod when he plays against us, and you will mainly find him hanging around on the wing.
Back at the Ricoh, Gavin Mahon took one for the team as he received dog’s abuse for looking like Lee Hughes. Neither is at the club any more, so unfortunately there’s no chance of that hilarity happening again.
They do have another Hughes however – a chap called Jeff who I know very little about.
Sky Blues team news
After managing the previous 45 league games this season, goalkeeper Joe Murphy has caused himself a groinal mischief. His kinkiness leaves the door open for everybody’s favourite helmet head Chris Dunn to get himself involved in the first team action again.
There were plenty of fans who blamed him for the JPT first leg defeat to Crewe. I too think he inspired little confidence in his defenders. But he wasn’t the only one – he wasn’t one of the midfielders to go completely and recklessly gung-ho. And in his previous appearances he’s always looked fairly sensible to me. Best just to leave him to his game, I say. Ironic cheering when he catches the ball is banned.
Tony’s available for selection and an option for the left-back slot now that Jordan Stewart’s hurt himself.
It’s also the last opportunity for some of the loan players to say goodbye to our fans. Maybe Mr Pressley will give them a final go, or maybe, he couldn’t care less about things like that and will stick with some of the youngsters.
We’re all going on a Summer holiday.
It means we’ll lose by 3 or 2.
More court battles on our Summer holiday.
Is this the end for Sisu-ooh?
Or are ACL more poo?
