Saturday 20th January
Despite the hot air blanket, the game today did fall victim to
a frozen pitch and this means that January is going to be a very
lean month indeed for league fixtures Ė one to be precise. There
is no game next week as it is the 4th round of the FA Cup (just
think we could have been thrashing Kingstonian), and although both
Town and Crystal Palace have a week off the postponed New Years
day fixture has not been re-arranged for next Saturday. What on
earth will I find to write about? Peter Ndlovu I suppose!
Lou Macari collected his Manager of the Month award today, and
3 Town players received awards for their performances in December.
Match magazine rates players performances throughout each month
and Simon Baldry came second to Boltonís Colin Hendry with the latter
scoring 8.25 marks per match on average and Baldry averaging 7.85.
Not bad for a fringe player under Bruce and it just goes to show
that he should have had a better look at the players already at
the club before he started chucking loads of money around. Peter
Ndlovu came third in the list averaging 7.83 marks and Delroy Facey
figured in 6th place with 7.66. Well-done lads, but letís go for
the 1-2-3 in February. We might as well forget January.
