Let's get this straight - we're having a laugh

The Man In The Stands

Things seem to be getting lost in translation and The Man doesn't get it.

We all seem to be squabbling over who we can abuse, how loud we should clap and whether we're happy or not.

Of course in-fan arguments always happen, especially if the rest of the club is ticking along. And Super Chrissy Martin is playing like a man who's just secured a new contract. It doesn't change the fact he has been top class for most of the season.

Two wins from the last two games is perfect, the rest is conjecture.

Us fans are one thing - we can't help ourselves - but the boss getting annoyed is another matter. The Man doesn't think for one moment Lambo is really bothered some people said we were a little lost against Saints and rubbish against Southend.

Much more likely it's some cute way of deflecting pressure off the players. You see, The Man like everyone else will have a moan about passing the ball straight out of play, about apparently struggling against some of League One's rubbish.

But none of it takes away the huge joy of seeing us winning, top of a table and proving it was a mismanagement joke we ended up in this god forsaken division in the first place.

No one should get muddled up with observations and knowing how good things are, top of the league and having a laugh. Otherwise we'll never enjoy anything.

t The Man thinks it's great the Football League have laid on an entire reconstruction to what going to football used to be about.

Boundary Park is a relic that should have been put out of its misery 50 years ago. The lack of emergency exits was clearly a worry, because they've bulldozed an entire stand just in case.

Despite that, it was unclear whether the barbed wire 'protection' was to keep people from getting in, or the home supporters from leaving.

t We've been so good this season, ManUre clearly wish they were us.

All these yellow and green scarves are supposedly a link to United's early days and a protest at their current Yanky owners, which seems a bit rich considering no one in Manchester - or Surrey - complained when the club raised millions by floating on the stock market.

Being bought by some curious-looking Americans who had the ingenious idea to charge the purchase price back to the club on expenses is simply a case of reaping what you sow.

A BBC bloke got it right at Sunday's League Cup final: “The chant (from Villa fans) was: 'Are you Norwich in disguise?' A compliment, surely...”

Damn right.
