This week is not last week or so I hope

Last week saw a shock [to some] defeat at the hands of an independent for me in the Torbay local elections and the week was topped off by Nottingham Forest falling just short of automatic promotion to the ludicrously titled 'Championship' [Division 2 more like) and the end of 80 years of league football at Plainmoor. That Forest lost out to Bristol City - the team my step-daughter supports - makes it that bit worse.

On the plus side the indie candidate beat the Tories too !

Never mind the hoo-hah about Blair it is a vital week for different set of Reds. It's a trip to Somerset for the twice former European Champions and a trip to the new Wembley hopefully beckons for a play-off final. Please don't flunk it boys as you've done in other 'big' games this season. Well for Aha the 'Sun Always Shines on TV', but TV (especially Sky) cameras turn the Trees into gibbering wrecks. The 0-1 League Cup defeat at mighty Accrington being typical and the spineless defeat to Chelsea touched a new low. I think we've lost something like 7 out of out last 10 appearances on live TV, so I expect the worst.

To hell with entertainment - just give us a good score to take back to the City Ground....please !
