Friday 20th April.
I sometimes wonder if other football fans do strange things when
their thoughts are consumed by a really important game. After the
defeat at Blackburn the QPR game tomorrow has taken on greater significance,
and I find myself doing daft things like kicking stones as I walk
back to my car after work telling myself that if I get it between
those two lamp-posts then Town will win tomorrow. Sometimes you
might screw up a piece of paper and lob it towards the bin basketball
style thinking that if it goes in then Town will get three points
in their next game. When they lose you find yourself remembering
those bits of paper that missed the bin, or the stones that didnít
make their intended target and in some way feeling responsible for
the defeat. Very sad but regrettably true, and this has been just
one of those weeks as I am a bag of nerves.
