League One a guilty pleasure

The Man In The Stands There was a twinge of guilt as Chrissy Martin hit number four on Tuesday - The Man was enjoying winning. Again. The thoughts whistled through. Is it bad to be a big fish in a small pond? After so much pain, we may as well just enjoy battering rubbish opponents every week.

The Man In The Stands

There was a twinge of guilt as Chrissy Martin hit number four on Tuesday - The Man was enjoying winning. Again.

The thoughts whistled through. Is it bad to be a big fish in a small pond? After so much pain, we may as well just enjoy battering rubbish opponents every week.

The moment soon passed - not the fun of winning, but the wondering where we're better off being.

Part of it is novelty, of course. But at least we can smile while we have a proper manager in charge.

One who wants nothing less than �8million for Wesley.

One who says it's nice to be in charge of a proper club - yes, Cowling, that's aimed at you.

As The Man has said before, Lambo will manage bigger clubs than us in the future. But the first managerial appointment not decided by the old board in years has given us a bloke who knows what he's doing and knows how to win.

That is no coincidence. And it's why the Ewes are kicking up such a tiresome fuss.

The Man is loving Lambo's work, that's for sure.

t League One was always set to be something new, but we should have been warned of the health risks.

First the boys stroll to victory at Hartlepool - where Michael Nelson's acrobatics were so shocking, one City fan celebrated by hurtling into an advertising hoarding.

Then Littl' Wes scores our first at St Mary's on Saturday and another fan - presumably a different one - marks the goal by tripping over five rows of red seats and ending in a heap at the foot of the stand.

Although I'm sure each of us would take a celebration-induced hit for promotion back to the relative safety of the Championship.

t After what The Man chirped up with last week, Rusty clearly had that chat with Miss Marple.

Reading between the lines, it seems Gunny banked on getting a higher bid from Burnley - a giant of English football - and when it didn't come, couldn't face going back on himself.

If Gunny had involved Rusty rather than letting him rot in the reserves, he may well have ended up in the job a bit longer.

So in that case, he probably did us all a favour.

t Conspiracy theories galore - The Man wonders what massive changes are planned to leave the AGM postponed.

To be honest, it doesn't really matter. The last time it was put back was because they had issues booking a room, so hardly important.

Now, if the accounts are not filed on time, then we're in trouble. The Man will be keeping an eye out.
