Monday 12th February.

It was revealed today that Chris Lucketti suffered a mystery chest complaint just before the Bolton game on Saturday. He apparently suffered severe pains and in the absence of any obvious ailment he was sent out to play for 90 minutes. Perhaps the NHS should be told of this particular line of therapy. Obviously points are more important than the playersí welfare, and it was put down to some sort of anxiety felt by the player who broke his leg in the same fixture last season. Strange but true.

Bolton Manager, Sam Allardyce reckons that Town are showing the sort of form that will see us reach safety this season. Itís a shame that we didnít have 3 points to show for it, but nice to get some positive vibes from the ex-Town player. I remember a game (I think it was against Fulham) when an opposition player came in with an awful challenge on David Burke, breaking his leg badly in the process. Sam Allardyce who was a former team-mate of Burkesí came running over to the player and laid him out flat with a punch that would have pleased Mike Tyson. Both Allardyce and the Fulham player had to walk, and legend has it that the Fulham dressing room door was full of stud marks for years afterwards as testament to Allardyceís efforts to exact further retribution. Those were the daysÖ

After an appalling season, time was finally called on the tenure of Paul Jewell as Manager of Sheffield Wednesday. Bottom of the league and suffering a 4-1 thrashing on Saturday, Jewell was sacked today after just 6 months in charge. Iím sorry to see him go because he has done a cracking job of keeping us off the foot of the table for much of this season. I just hope that his successor doesnít turn things around for our South Yorkshire neighbours.
