Wednesday 21st March.

Despite my gloomy outlook for the chances of fresh faces arriving at the McAlpine before tomorrow nightís deadline, Macari has finally moved to address the left-back situation. Canadian international Jim Brennan has signed on loan from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season. Since the departure of Jamie Vincent we have struggled by with Steve Jenkins doing his best but he is very one footed and the defence has looked very unbalanced at times.

Brennan was apparently a regular last season when Nottingham Forest were struggling, but has only made 12 appearances this season when they are pushing for the play-offs. I just hope that this isnít a reflection on his abilities. Anyhow, letís be grateful for the fact that they have at least addressed the left-sided defender paucity that we are suffering and letís hope that he is at least half decent.

There is no mention of any other arrivals, and the Booth and Marsden stories have become strangely silent as the deadline nears. I might as well write tomorrow nightís diary entry now, because I can only see one outcome with Town saying how hard they tried to bring players in, and how close they were to striking a deal but it just didnít happen in time. Out of some strange misguided sense of expectation I still hope that I am to be proved wrong.
