Friday 16th March.

I could hardly believe my eyes tonight when I read that Town had made an offer for Southampton midfielder Chris Marsden. Marsden is a former player who came to the club as a winger in the late 1980ís and was converted into a fairly skilful midfielder. He was, however, dogged by persistent injuries, particularly his knee and these contributed to his departure from the club in 1994 having made just 155 appearances in about 6 seasons, which is not a particularly good average. He is a regular in the Southampton team, and if the reports are to be believed then a definite offer has been made for him with the hope that he might even be able to play tomorrow.

Call me sceptical, but Iím not sure how many of these supposed targets are genuine and how many are figments of Macariís imagination to keep the fans quiet until transfer deadline day next Thursday, but we have apparently been knocked back with offers to Celtic for Tommy Johnson and Olivier Tebily. I am not convinced that any of these will actually happen, and expect to read in next Thursdays paper that the club tried really hard to sign players but circumstances conspired against them. We will probably have to see out the remainder of the season with the existing squad and rebuild a side to have a tilt at promotion from the second division.



All words and thoughts by Chris except where stated.

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.
