Surely anyone can chuck a kitchen sink, eh Paul?

The Man In The Stands

It may have resembled a school sports day but The Man has decided he likes the Withdean.

Thankfully being the other end of the ground to the last visit, we were far enough away from the pitch to miss our ropey performance but close enough to all enjoy WFLGHolt and the Doc do the honours.

It may have resembled a school sports day but The Man has decided he likes the Withdean.

Thankfully being the other end of the ground to the last visit, we were far enough away from the pitch to miss our ropey performance but close enough to all enjoy WFLGHolt and the Doc do the honours.

We somehow turned the game on its head - meaning the Lambo chop is rearing its head regularly. It seems people are just waiting for when the time comes for him to walk.

Now, The Man buys the Celtic theory - they will be the likely lads to pinch him. And he will be pinched. The guy doesn't seem one for putting down firm roots anywhere.

The Man is a big fan of Lambo. He can take all the credit for turning us from bottom half certs to near invincibles.

And it's easy to get carried away. Like Saturday. While it was some way from Worthy's 'take a striker off and bring on Daryl Sutch hoping for the best' approach, he's hardly the first manager to sling every attacking player onto the pitch and hope something turns up.

With our squad, in the Football League's doldrums, it feels like we're using a cheat on Championship Manager.

Assuming we finish the job and if you're reading this Lambo, we need you around next season to really prove the point. Hard luck Celtic.

t So there is a Norwich City car for us to cheer round Formula One this year - providing it actually goes around the track, that is.

F1 drifts in and out of The Man's consciousness much like the story lines in EastEnders.

As well as a green and yellow car - you can keep your jokes about it looking good but the wheels coming off - there's Lotus' strange leader, Tony Fernandes.

He seems like a thoroughly nice bloke - but perhaps a little too excitable to believe he would really contemplate popping a few of his millions down Carra Rud way.

Plus he's a West Ham fan - never a good idea.

t The Man is not surprised Matt “Woody” Holland has already been handed a “midseason break” on the Beeb's rehashed Late Kick Off.

Maybe it was his line last week claiming the Scum's attendances were holding up well that pushed his bosses over the edge.

Holland was never much of a graceful mover on the pitch and he's little better in front of a camera - it takes a lot of imagination to see him pulling off a career at it.

But then, The Man thought the same about Gary Lineker and look how that panned out…

t As much as we all miss the chance to win bragging rights, The Man would happily miss them for another year if the Scum go down.

There is no way that lot down the road would cope with the doldrums the way we have, with the crowds we have and the renaissance of an actual rapport with our players.

Despite Tuesday's hilarious defeat to Posh and Keano taking another step towards running away, The Man doubt things could ever be so good.

But make no mistake - here's hoping.
