First of all, congrats to Dai for the new site design. Very smart.
I was chuffed when he told me this column was reverting to a ‘blog’ because I’m really pushed for time at the moment, being the ‘oldest student in town’ and having to put in the hours on my college course. This format suits me just fine.
Thought I’d better get a few initial words down to clear the old article away, too, or you’ll think I’ve gone barmy if you started reading it and didn’t check the date. That wasn’t so long ago, was it, when we were down in the dumps, and I was reflecting on why I was a Jack after another horrible away defeat, at Oxford – bet they’d swap places with us now.
Anyway, great news that Darren Pratley’s injury was nowhere near as serious as first feared and he has a chance of making the team tomorrow. Good luck to the players and all the travelling Jacks.
We go top if we win, simple as. I’ll be with you in spirit but not in the flesh as I have to referee a local match, and I’m saving my pennies for the next away trip, Yeovil. Good luck tomorrow, boys!
