‘Boro, and yet another nightmare trip in the snow over the M62 and looking dodgy at Saddleworth before clearing on the M1/A1. We were not fooled though, knowing it would be bad again within half a mile of The Riverside.
Listen - the man Mancini is a genius. Anyone who could take a team like that to bogey club ‘Boro, and win, has to be. The test will be on Wednesday when City face united’s reserves said a fairly generous Paul Wilson in The Observer. Ho ho ho I don’t think so, not after that defeat to Leeds. Fergie’s flops will be dropped we were told – so that’s Rooney, Berbatov, Valencia, Neville and Owen out then? Not a prayer. Who cares what team they play, bring em on!
Heavy snow today and both League Cup semis are off. If we weren’t playing Blackburn next Monday night, we could have both played next Wednesday! Not now, so our home leg is now on the 19th and the away leg on the 27th meaning the Stoke game is postponed (and they have a free Saturday to prepare) to add to Everton home which we should have fitted in on December 9th as I’ve previously said!
That ‘s buggered up the next zine which we were hoping would be the Wembley (or not!) Special, so we’ve now pulled the deadline back to this Thursday January 7th in the hope we can get it to the printers mid week next week to be out for the united home leg.
Articles are already coming in so hopefully everyone will pull out all the stops. Fingers crossed, we’ve never missed a deadline yet in 20 years so weather permitting, wind in the right direction, running downhill, by the seat of our pants, and all that, we’ll be there!
