Shitting bricks

It's the big one tomorrow. Col is on his third pair of y-fronts already today.

McGaribaldi doesn't have the guts to put this on his blog. He e-mailed it to me, and I'm not going to treat it in confidence:

"Prediction time:

- Forest to beat Bradford 2-0
- Walsall to hold Barnsley to a draw
- Swansea to win at Chesterfield

- Forest beat Brentford in Semi
- Swansea beat Huddersfield in Semi

- Forest absolutely batter Swansea 4-0 at the Millenium Stadium, the Taffs go home crying like babies."

Crying like a baby? About football? My son (aged 7) doesn't take losing very well. Whenever a game goes badly, he breaks into floods of tears. The other day, I had to take him aside and explain...
"Big boys don't cry about football"

Ms NTaH, overheard this. Her comment?

She has a nasty streak sometimes. When I weep, I have to do it privately.

Oh dear. Still it looks like Marlon's made the big time. Tell you what, how about you have David O'Dreary as manager. Before you know it you can be watching some 'really nice lads' who are 'honest' and 'try hard'.

That's two Marlons who've made the big time after failing to really shine in our shirt. Name one other club that could make that statement!

Marlon Harewood was mercurial in the Championship for Forest, and inspirational for West Ham in the Premiership.

Throw in Jermaine Jenas and Michael Dawson, to name but a few and you can see what we've let go over the past few years. Some by necessity, and some simply because we couldn't get the best out of them.

I reckon you're stuck with DO'L Bob. And I think it would be a mistake for Villa to sack him yet.

The problem there is Doug Ellis.
