Friday 2nd March.

Town overlooked a small but vitally important facet during their signing discussions with Phil Cool; sorry I mean Lee Crooks - his wages! Once again we have been led up the garden path expecting a new face to be on duty tomorrow for the visit of Norwich only to have our hopes dashed. Everything seemed to be settled except that the player could not agree personal terms, which I presume is a euphemism for Town not offering enough folding stuff to tempt the guy down a division or possibly two soon.

As if this news wasnít disappointing enough, I was very disturbed to read that Town have been chasing Jamie Lawrence from Bradford City. Transfers from our near neighbours have been very mixed over the years, with Peter Jackson being the most notable success and Paul Reid and Lee Sinnott doing a pretty good job for us, although the latter was never the same after the lid of the Play-Off trophy fell on his head at Wembley. On the other hand, there have been a couple of real duds from up the M606 with Lee Duxbury and Des Hamilton being a real disappointment to say the very least. I donít feel particularly excited about the possible arrival of Jamie Lawrence, but perhaps itís another case of any port in a storm and this storm is quite a bad one.

With the lack of new arrivals at the McAlpine, the team for tomorrow has a worryingly familiar look to it. There look to be few if any changes to the side that seemingly produced nothing against Tranmere on Tuesday, yet which played so well in the second half (according to Mr Snooze). Whilst we are propping up the table nothing less than 3 points will do.

A big thank you to Machala for putting up with me doing this and Ian for his support and my Mum for her proof reading.
