Jason Shackell is the new Gary Doherty. For months we have read on message boards (and on some blogs…but not here) that Ginger Pele was useless and Shacks was the real star, and now the worm would seem to have turned. In the last few days I’ve seen rather a lot of messages putting the boot into Shackell. Something he seems to have forgotten how to do.
Dion won’t be retiring quietly. In an ideal world we’d be safe by the time we play QPR next weekend, but as it stands now it promises to be a pretty nervous 90 minutes on Saturday.
We just can’t beat the Tractor Boys. This time it was the under 17s turn to get turned over.
Robert Earnshaw won’t be at Pride Park next season. Mr. Loyalty himself has been in the press all week talking about next season and his future, with Cardiff the latest team to be linked with the former Canary striker. And for the record, yes I’d take him back.
