I'm not voting for Dave or Nick, for me it's the Scottish Fella

Sorry Dave I can't vote for you

 Sorry Nick not you either

Yes, there is still one Scotsman who can be reasonably confident of winning an election

Tonight we get the chance to vote in the only poll that really matters, CAFC player of the season. I'm going for Christian as he's been, for me, our most consistent performer.......in a positive way ! He quietly goes about his job and marshalls the defence using all his knowledge and experience.

Another tough game tonight and none of us cares how we win if we do, just go and win. Tonight we get another reminder of why we were rather shortsighted to let Lisbie go. Having failed to set the Prem alight for us he surely deserved a chance in the Championship with us and it seemed clear to me that he'd probably be ok at the very least. As we know he usually comes back to bite us on the bum every time we play against him !

I've note been impressed by Parky's decision to play Forster as the lone striker for the last few games. It's a role Deon Burton can play because he's a bit bigger and can control and lay off almost anything that's thrown at him. It's not for Forster though and I think he'll be better with  strike partner.

For goodness sake against these tall long ball merchants can we start with Akpo. I seriously doubt we will but given Parky's ever changing approach to his starting eleven nothing can be ruled out.

A win tonight would keep alive the glimmer of hope of 2nd spot, let's hope the lads can deliver and set up a mouthwatering encounter for Saturday.

Come On You Reds !


  1. Good & bad night for you Phil. We did start with Akpo, we did win but voting for the POTY, hmm, as elusive as ever to find one of the 'volunteers' collecting the votes. No sign of the online voting facility either...

  2. Yes Ketts, not sure what happened there. That's not the voter apathy I expected at the moment......this one really matters !
    I hope the pollsters will be out in force on Saturday !
