    Yep and I think Bury should sack him as well to be fair.

    Haven't heard anything yet but wonder if Norwich want him cup tied. We still have the wee laddie.

    Norwich have given permission for him to play - further confirmation today that none of our senior 3 are even close to playing.

    I don't think Adams is in too much of a hurry to send him back anyway and is a bit relieved he has an excuse not to.

    I was quite near Matthews and Cooper at Wimbledon when they came out to warm up....quite a bit before the rest of the team did....he looked very confident.

    They spent awhile drop kicking the ball to each other over approx 40 plus yards....Matthews was far more accurate with his kicking....Cooper literally had the ball kick into his hands each time.....and although he didn't seem to have muscular legs his distance kicking was very good. I think he will be a very dependable goalkeeper when his first team chance comes or if he eventually move on to another club from Norwich....I think Delia is feeding him well.

    The same thing is notable when McCormick warms up. Every single time the ball lands right at the feet of the guy at the other end without him having to move. It's never the same on the way back! A goal keeper's distribution is an important thing these days, especially if you want to break out quickly from the back, which is Adams' style.

    I see the mighty Scotland played a friendly last night at Pittodrie against Holland... losing 1-0.
    Nothing spectacular about that you say......but the attendance for the national team was only.....17,838.

    Disappointment for N Ireland last night in the first leg of their World Cup play-off at home to Switzerland. An appalling penalty decision against them saw them lose 1-0....the ball hitting Corry Evans in the back....and the Romanian referee judging that it hit his arm. Comments of "staggering"..."bewildering"....were amongst the comments by the N Ireland manager....things were only compounded as well when Evans was yellow carded and will now miss the second game.
    A Swiss players two footed tackle was only given a yellow when a red looked more appropriate.
    Overall Switzerland were the better team on the night.

    Graham Carey voted Division One's player of the month for October.....puts him in the shop window for the January sales unfortunately.

    Been reading bits and pieces about the length of time that Oscar Threlkeld has been with the "medical team"....something that we're not being told about this situation....It looked as if he came back too early and broke down under some hefty tackling...and he needed to come off....but you get the feeling that Derek Adams felt otherwise at the time.....and a situation has developed between them which hasn't been resolved....I hope I'm wrong....but he is taking a long time to get match fit isn't he?....we really miss him in defence. Will he be gone in January ?

    Good game? The crowd were making paper aeroplanes and cheering when they managed to launch one on the pitch. I thought it was a big load of crap personally. £10 for every backward pass and I would be a millionaire now.
