Thursday 2nd November.
It was reported in tonightís paper that Macari spoke with his
predecessor before accepting the managerís job. Whatís this all
about? Is it some quaint sense of loyalty or is he just the ultimate
diplomat? He spoke to Bruce before accepting the caretakersí role
and now again before accepting the full post, canít he break wind
without Steve Bruceís OK? Before we know it he will be admitting
to running his team selections past the precious incumbent! Still,
itís a funny old game!
On the playing front it looks as though we will be without Kenny
Irons who has picked up a virus (too much beer?), although we may
have a couple of extra striking options available as both Martin
Smith and Chris Hay seem to have recovered from their illnesses.
