'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Next up Hull, who makes it?

The really hectic schedule is close to ending, in as much as playing 4 games in 8 days goes. With Hull tomorrow comes what 'might' be the last of the games that we are stretched to breaking point...

Well, that depends on movement in the transfer window?

Although, and worrying, there is some 'word on the street' that movement out is more likely than in with the first to be moved on soon...

If Liam Lawrence does not return to face Hull I would be amazed as his signing is now complete so nothing, injury aside, should keep him out.

Jamie Ashdown, who flapped badly for Watford's opener - the finish was stunning though on the volley, and Joel Ward were both 'injury doubts' going into the last game but, depending on the reaction, should be ok.

Rocha John Rocha sat out the Watford defeat with what was said to be a 'minor knock'. He and The Herminator come back into the equation though I would think?

Again Richard Hughes and Mikey Brown - who could, according to 'word on the street' join QPR and not Wolves as 'reported' - look certainties to miss out and the chances of either playing for us again tend to grow slimmer with time passing...

Dave Kitson is back from suspension, although Greg Halford, even if a loan extension has been agreed, misses out through suspension of his own after the red at Vicarage Road. Ward will almost certainly drop back into defence at right back in place of Halford.

The lack of midfield numbers and with Kanu 'unlikely' to be able to start back-to-back games in such a short space of time, with any serious influence anyway, 'might' see Tom Kilbey get a chance to make his home debut, possibly as a starter?

Despite the lack of numbers we 'should' have enough to be competitive, then again I thought this about the Watford game!

I would not 'think' that much will change from the Watford game, Halford is the only certainty to miss out - his suspension does kick-in right away, right? - and Lawrence and Kitson the only near certainties to come in, Steve Cotterill its over to you...

    The press is reporting West Ham bidding 4 million for Lawrence. Where is our owner to tell them to **** off?

    He's not going to tell them that though, he's going to pull their arm off. There is of course a rule that a player can't be sold twice in one transfer window, but its strange how sometimes these rules can be broken, and othertimes they can't (like letting LL play against Watford for instance). Hughes has been in the papers saying he has agreed to the paycut weeks ago and heard nothing from the club - what's going on Mr Lampitt, SC needs all the options he can get! Don't know that its the same situation with Brown tho, think we're probably going to lose him.

    Increasingly we have no say nor input nor insight into anything that happens at PFC, I do not find myself surprised at anything anymore. I care very passionately about our club and if it is necessary to get rid of all this Sh*t around us I am increasingly drawn to wishing they would all just *** off and give us back our proud name, even if this means in the southern league.
