... well there's no "proper football" so ...
Starting with some "sad news" - Ashton United Manager Danny Johnson is 'moving on' ... he's accepted the Manager's post at Nantwich Town. After six years at Hurst Cross - up and down and up and down - he's done a great job there, working on tight budgets but always putting out a good squad, finding a few little gems on the way ... and always very approachable for a natter. An amicable split I'm glad to say - everyone at Hurst Cross is fully appreciative of Danny's work there and he leaves with everyone's good wishes.
Next ... Cammell "bloody" Laird - buggered up my "If If If" post last night by winning - so it's now definitely/mathematically 'perm any 2 from 3' on Saturday afternoon vis-a-vis the Evo 1 North Play-Offs - takes me back to the heady days of 2006 at Gresley when Mossley were losing and mobile phones were going here, there and every bloody where checking results elsewhere (thank you Shepshed that day !!). It could well be the same this Saturday ... although these days we all have Twitter to keep us up to date - however might still offer up my mobile number to Trafford and Ramsbottom - can just imagine 1645hrs on Saturday ... waiting ... waiting ... team staying on the pitch ... waiting ... and this is just to get into the bloody play-offs !!! Now that the Conf North has finished, it would be nice to see a few "extras" turning up at Seel Park on Saturday as well (and personally I'm praying for an "easy Saturday" at work so I can get there early enough to start taking photos) ... incidentally a big plug for Dave Bauckham ... he came up for the Mossley/Ramsbottom game - and there's a cracking album of pictures here:
Mossley/Rammy - Dave Bauckham's View
Fortunately Belper Town don't have this worry on Saturday - guaranteed 3rd place in the Evo 1 South - unless they can turn an 8 goal difference around (assuming Coalville lose as well) - at least 3rd place guarantees a home tie in the Play-Off Semi-Final ... Mossley can only hope for 4th or 5th (assuming all goes to plan) ... which means travelling (New Mills or Cammell "bloody" Laird !!).
Can Barcelona turn it round tonight ?? Does anyone really care ?? Will Mourinho move back to England ?? Does anyone really care ??
Time to cook tea ... does anyone care ??
Colne 0-0 Droylsden - We're staying in the Holiday Inn just outside Royal Leamington Spa, in Warwickshire; it's bloody awful to be honest. We don't give two hoots. After a fail...
