Thursday 15th March.

Town’s game against Preston a week on Saturday has been postponed due to international call-ups. Surprisingly this isn’t as a result of Craig Armstrong being called into the Scotland squad and Nico Vaesen into the Belgian squad, but because Preston have three international players. Apparently the most surprising absentee is their Finnish goalkeeper Tuevo Moilanen who hasn’t figured internationally for over a year, but it has conspired to give Town another blank Saturday.

This will give Town’s last 9 fixtures a very lop-sided look with only 3 games at home and 6 away over a period of about 5 weeks. This is the sort of fixture congestion we could have done without, but there’s nothing we can do about it other than pick up as many home wins as possible from the rapidly diminishing fixtures at the McAlpine to ease the pressure when we travel.

Town have had American midfielder John Thorington on trial with the club for a couple of months now and this is a couple of months longer than most of our triallists last. He started his career at Old Trafford and then moved to Bayer Leverkusen, but a serious injury halted his career progress. However it seems that he has impressed during his trial and has been offered a contract. It remains to be seen whether he will put pen to paper, but I have a suspicion if he does then he will be the only one with just 7 days remaining before the signings deadline passes.

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.
