Wednesday 28th February.
Still little of interest coming out of the McAlpine today. Macari
was busy praising his players for what he considered to be a good
performance. I get a horrible feeling if the man who is responsible
for picking the team is happy with the performance resulting in
a 2-0 defeat, we are in trouble, deep trouble. It also worries me
that with talk like this he might be reluctant to shake things up
and restore Gray and Dyson to the side. Thornley's best position
now seems to be on the bench, and Facey sounds as though he is jaded
after his extended run in the team. Assuming that Baldry is still
unfit for the visit of Norwich on Saturday, why not do something
a little radical such as giving some of the youngsters a start.
Danny Schofield must be wishing he had stayed at Brodsworth, but
why not take a chance on him? He could even risk Chris hay for one
final fling up front or give David Beresford Ben Thornley’s place
in the team. Desperate situations sometimes call for desperate measures
and perhaps now is the time to take a risk or two.
I am just debating whether to start writing tomorrow’s entry now.
After all we know that Thursday is always the day that Macari feeds
Mel Snooze the line about stepping up his search for new faces,
as well as feeding him a packet of Garibaldi’s. I suppose that I
had better wait, just in case.
