Bonus edition of SAFCBlog today to ease the boredom of Lockdown #2. It’s easy to end up watching more TV at times like this? The news just seems to be on a loop? It’s Donald this…. Donald that….. I’m sick of hearing the same old stuff about lying, alleged fraudulent actions, dodgy fake tan, ill fitted suit wearing, media whore, false promises etc….
Of course the day to day running of the club is now in the hands of Jim Rodwell, although if Ole is sacked this weekend, goodness knows how he’s going to be able to run SAFC and manage Man United?
The Mansfield of the Cup……..
Whilst I’m aware I sound like a broken record, it’s a real shame that fans can’t attend tomorrow, especially the Mansfield fans, (I’m guessing they’d have brought 2’000?), they visit the likes of Carlise, Newport, Exeter, Crawley, Morecambe etc….. it’s a shame they can’t have their day out at the home of football?
They’ve appointed Nigel Clough today, whilst this shouldn’t particularly affect them either way tomorrow, it’s a great appointment for them moving forward.
Tomorrow’s line up …..
We will make wholesale changes tomorrow…..
Neil, Diamond, Embleton and Hawkes all not involved with the u23’s today vs Wolves. So they’ll all be in the squad. No Benji either, but apparently he’s injured, although a 1pm kick off on a Friday was never going to be ideal for him?
Hume, Gooch, Luke, Denver & Scowen have injuries.
I reckon Grant and Charlie will be given the day off to go fishing, (surely that’s allowed in Lockdown?), and it probably makes sense to give Matthews some game time in place of Burge.
So many changes actually means I’m quite looking forward to watching the game.
On this day…….
1974…… Lord Lucan disappears shortly after the family’s nanny is found battered to death
1975…… The Sex Pistols perform live for the 1st time
1989…… Jozy Altidore is born
1990…… I cannot believe it’s 30 years ago, but The Happy Monday’s release this
Technically there were better bands than them, but in terms of influence they were the ones for me. I don’t go and watch them anymore, somethings are better remembered as they were? But The Monday’s Live were a thing of beauty, no idea how often I saw them…. but from the intimacy of the Duchess, …..to the chaos of The Warehouse, The Boardwalk & The Hacienda……. to the medium gigs of Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle Uni….to the big gigs of Whitley Bay Ice Rink & GMEX…..to the mega gig of Elland Road…… they were class nights. As I say, contrary to the ideology of Richard Ashcroft, I think they did work, but it was mint…… 30 fucking years!!!
”Son I’m 30, I only went with your mother ‘cause she’s dirty…..”
