I don't usually write a blog on a Sunday but yesterday's events has prompted me too. I did not want the usual Thursday/Friday blog to be all about Bruce. I will say what I feel right at the start. Bruce is past his sell by date and should of gone in the summer, never mind after yesterdays mess.

Another Must Win Weekend

Here I am a home alone kid. My wife has gone down to Leicester leaving me and the dogs alone to fend for ourselves. Shame, I get to eat what ever I like and do what ever I like. How will I survive? I will think about that later but in the meantime the continuing tale of our beloved club.
I must say I am getting tired of writing whether Bruce should go or not. I should be writing about the Fulham game or what will be happening on Saturday. Instead it is Bruce. I must say I am still in the Bruce out camp but the question is when.

Normal Service Resumes

Sat here with blackness outside after a lovely sunny day. Well sunny but cold as we had the wind again. What would life be up here without the wind? You can feel that winter is definitely around the corner, as is having the yellow ball back again.

It has been a long 2 weeks since the Man U game, its almost hard to remember what happened. Mind I have been into hospital since, so had other things to think of and worry about. Also it was my youngest granddaughter's birthday, Katelyn was one.That was a happy but tiring day.

Strange title? Nope, for football fans that is exactly what it is, a blank weekend. I do dislike these international weekends. What do you do? Nothing to get excited about or in our case getting worried about. We do tend to worry alot and not without some due cause. Being a Mackem is not a easy life. Would be much easier if you supported Man U or Chelsea, when your only worry is 'How many prizes are we going to win this season. Or a City fan wondering 'which world stars will be coming our way in January & what are we not going to win'.

A Bright View from up North

Hello again from a bright Caithness. From a misty, dreich morning, it is a brighter afternoon. A pleasant change from the wind and rain. Maybe it will stay nice before it is back into hospital for me on Wednesday for a couple of days for tests. I want them to find something but not what they are looking for, if that makes sense.

Anyway lets get to the big test, Man Utd away. Not a great prospect, is it? We have not won against them since 2000, so tomorrow will be a hard task. Also leading against Man Utd does not help, they get so many last minute goals, especially against us. With these stats and that they will still be smarting for that defeat against City, I would be happy with a draw, maybe 2-2.
