Not the usual Carrow Road slugfest then?

The Man In The Stands

I'm sure there were a few at this year's AGM drifting off to thoughts of what they were missing.

You know, the bumbled tones of Roger Munby saying so much, yet nothing at all.

I'm sure there were a few at this year's AGM drifting off to thoughts of what they were missing.

You know, the bumbled tones of Roger Munby saying so much, yet nothing at all. Doomcaster protecting every sliver of information about the club's inner workings - hoping the football manager will be enough of a distraction from the fact the board is a bit confused about what it should be doing.

And then Roedent doing a terrific job of obliging.

This week's AGM was always going to be a love in. After all, what's to complain about?

We're broke, but we knew that.

We need more money, and we knew that too. And so far, Bowkett, McGnarly and Lambo are dong just fine. A year down the line and a similar performance, and The Man will dish out more fulsome praise. But for now it's a case of keeping the fingers crossed we do the business on the pitch and get out of this god forsaken division.

After a few weeks of genuine enjoyment, the win over Hartlepool barely deserves this mention - and winning should never feel like that.

t The Man is well aware that attendances mean jack in terms of how good a team is - but come on.

Wigan keep masquerading as a real club despite getting 5,000 fans in midweek, and most of them no doubt travelled from Nottingham.

As for the Ewes, Mad Cowling's loyal fans flocked, literally, in their hundreds to see them scrape a win over Carlisle. One sentence - 12,000 for the JPT first round against Brentford. Enough said.

t Even in football's doldrums it seems we get treated differently to dirty Leeds.

The League One title race was all over when those lovely blokes up north were running away with it.

They were all set to end their "undeserved" spell of not being famous anymore.

But after proving how good they think they are at Man Ure, it all goes a bit wrong and we pass them by.

Leeds finally win after their blip thanks to some of the most comical defending Ewes' fans have almost certainly ever seen, and it's all a matter of when they get back to where they were.

For us, just a top two finish would do obviously. But the thought of getting one over Leeds is getting tastier by the weekend.

t Away from football The Man likes a bit of music - a bit of Editors, in fact.

That is, until the News of the Screwed revealed in another of their potentially libellous exclusives that drummer Ed Lay is a fan of the Scum.

Apparently his dislike of Norwich has passed onto his band mates as well.

But then, Ed reportedly told Sunday's finest chip paper: "The heat's come out of that rivalry a bit and transferred to Colchester."

So it's all right - he knows far more about music than he does football.

As an I****** fan, The Man probably should've guessed.
