Chapter Nine

Down, Down, Deeper and Down

Thursday 1st February.

The excitement is mounting as the Peter Ndlovu pot seems to keep simmering, and todayís news is that Macari is due to meet the player at Heathrow airport with a view to fitting him for a new blue and white shirt, white shorts and socks. Iím not sure whether last nightís Worthington Cup semi-final victory will have a bearing on the outcome, because Ndlovu might decide to stay put and take his chances trying to get a medal. Iím also not sure why on earth they are meeting at Heathrow airport of all places, but who cares as long as Macari says the right words and gets his signature.

Slightly worryingly Sheffield United still arenít entirely out of the equation and there is a suggestion that Town are trying to scupper any potential move to Bramall Lane Ė youíre not wrong Mr Warnock! It is encouraging to read that Ndlovu has indicated his desire to join Town, but until itís a done deal nothing can be taken for granted. With Nottingham Forest sure to be looking for revenge on Saturday it would be good to have his pace in the side.

Town have announced some cut price deals for some of the remaining fixtures this season in an attempt to get more bums on seats, but they seem a little conservative compared with the fiver a seat offer which packed the City Ground six weeks ago. Offers such as the ĎQuid for a Kidí and charging £5.00 if you bring a mate to the game donít seem very adventurous when we have 10,000 or so seats going begging on a Saturday afternoon. Surely they would be better filling the stadium as we try to lift ourselves from the relegation zone.
