    Been a good weekend for the minnows hasn't it. Millwall deserved their win earlier today from what I saw and good on Sutton following Lincoln's lead. Makes the cup more worthwhile and might make the "bigger" boys think next time with their reserves.

    I expect the bigger teams will complain that they are not getting enough money to run a competitive second string.....<laugh>.

    I see Carlisle have lost their top striker Charlie Wyke to Bradford.....he had scored 17 times in 34 starts.....so that might slow them down a shade.

    Best of luck Blakey and give Olive my regards.

    That was quick Joe. Sounds like you weren't asking enough in the first place.

    No, no buses. First interview of the day done-absolutely nails interview with the NHS. 4 women; three very pleasant, 1 dragon. 10 minute presentation followed by an hour's grilling- don't think I have a chance of landing that one. A more 'interesting' opportunity in a couple of hours.

    Yes , very well thanks. Just me and the interviewer. Essentially I was offered a rather good job (and not what I thought we would be discussing) providing the company and me can overcome a couple of minor hurdles. Won't start until the summer though. Worth the wait, and I might just enjoy the rest of the winter and spring without worrying about job hunting. Can't say anything more until/if it is confirmed-a bit like waiting for a few planets to align!

    Err no, but I might give some thought to that if the offer doesn't come to fruition. Am hatching a plan with the company to go in part time/voluntary to ease the transition to when/if the permanent position is available, so I might not have the entire spring off.

    Joe, are you still short of a gas engineer? My ex work colleague has just qualified (passed his final practicals last week)-happy to vouch for his personality and him being a person of good standing but no idea what his engineering skills are like. Also I have no idea of his availability; if you are interested PM me some contact details and I will forward them to him?

    Cheers Joe, have just spoke to him and passed your numbers on. He will probably give you a ring early next week.
