Whatever we do, we should damn well enjoy it

The Man In The Stands

The Man feels safe in taking a punt on when we'll get to celebrate returning to the glamour of the Championship.

We may have only picked up a point from another shockingly dull game in England's second most dull town, but it was still one more than old chokers up the road.

We may have only picked up a point from another shockingly dull game in England's second most dull town, but it was still one more than old chokers up the road.

Watching an underdog have its day is fun, but seeing dirty Leeds go so far off the rails they'd need sat nav is priceless.

Said it before, will say it again - just promote us twice.

To forecast it - thank you Beeb website - the lead is 11 points from third and eight from second.

The Man calls it we'll win promotion at Orient. After all, we've done it before.

The it really could happen that the boys finish the job with the silverware at Charlton.

A lot of the current side probably wouldn't see that as such a big thing.

But for anyone who suffered last year, it would be poetic justice to match thrashing the Ewes in January.

That's the bold predicting done with.

In all honesty, if promotion doesn't happen now The Man will probably throw in the towel.

A bit like Leeds.

t Why on earth would people not want to celebrate our (probable) promotion/title with a mass gathering?

Seriously, if you can't enjoy it when you actually win something, what's the point?

Of course there is the denial we shouldn't be where we are, promotion from the doldrums nothing to write home about blah blah blah.

It was a tactic favoured by Mad Roy Keane when he got Sunderland promoted to the Perished Land - a sham attempt at ambition, and with as much success as his weekly tactics at Poorman Road.

Clearly, anyone that utters the idea we'll get to the Championship and 'just enjoy it' needs to be silenced with masking tape.

But on the whole our current board - those pulling the strings, anyway - manager and players are all removed from the lot that shamefully gave up our place in the second division last season.

So be it a bus, a quick get together at the castle or free burgers at Yellows, whenever it happens it would be stupid not to make the most of enjoying it.

t Still no word from Deloitte on who's going to ease the big financial hole at Carra Rud.

Apparently it's not going to be Tony Fernandes.

Not enough room in his life with Lotus sucking every lining penny out of him, while he crosses his fingers Wet Sham survive until the summer.

I suppose given the state of some clubs we should consider ourselves lucky we're still afloat.

And at least we'll get to see that nice yellow and green car in the flesh at some point. Great.

t There is no point at which The Man is going to congratulate Fulham.

That includes when they beat some team with nine men the other day - doesn't matter who - with the help of a fluke goal in a competition that has been so far devalued it's bordering on pointless.

More a brand than a football club, who cares…
