Good morning and welcome to Friday. Gateway to the weekend, springboard to Sunday.

Can I shock you? I quite enjoyed that business last night. It was actually alright. What was evident was that someone had had a word with Arry about his dismissive Europa comments, his team selection, punters leaving in droves at previous games and the club’s responsibility to sponsors, specifically Investec. 

So what we got wasn’t all that difficult to rustle up was it Mr Redschnapps? A half decent selection and so a half decent game. A few empty seats but I think those who were toying with attending and decided not to would probably now say they wish they had gone.

6. 853 Made a slight jiggins of the free kick and against opposition at this level that must be a concern. But otherwise looked like a goalie.


6.001 Harsh to say an unconvincing display? Probably not. Again, confident going forward but in our 18 yard box you can hear the cogs turning and they aren’t exactly whizzing around.

7.401 An assured display as they say in football journalist speak. He moved the ball about well and generally looked the part. Triffic.


5.803 My view of him hasn’t changed. I think he tries very hard and frequently delivers his best; he’s solid enough squad player. That is all for now…

7.932 I like him. He’s made of the right stuff. A proper player for for a proper team and I hope he gets through, he makes it and stops with us for the long term.

6.066 Just back from injury and as per usual in these instances with him it was all a bit new and as bit of shock to the system. Let’s hope he’s blown a few cobwebs away anyway. 

7.000 I lacks a certain something at this stage and I don’t want to condemn him to soon it would be deeply unfair. Like to see him seize the reins a bit more. Sure he’s got it in him.

7. 012 What he needs is good diet of chicken wings and imported beers. Or maybe he wants more of a career and less to look like he hangs out with me a lot. Early doors but certainly one to watch.

8.456  “Come on Arry, gimme a break!” says Gio,  “One break, coming up!” replies Redschnapps. See what I did there? I swapped Ted Templeman & David Lee Roth for Dos Santos & Arry. The boy is good, let’s start again, eh?


7.001 Ooh you… I’m becoming increasingly convinced he will not survive with us. There is a great striker in there. “If it’s in you, I can get it out” David Brent.

8.143 A flippin’ good showing. As fit and game as a butcher’s dog. Looking forward to him and Ade tearing a fresh one on Sunday. 

6.546 What I like about him is whenever he gets the bloody thing he immediately looks to run at them, whoever they are. A dash of daring do about this young man. More please.
