You know, I'm not entirely sure of all the players that left or came in this week and I don't think it really bothers me. I mean, I don't need to know because I'll see it on the pitch and the penny will drop. And it doesn't matter to me. They are transient figures that care little for the Club if at all.

And as we're thirteen points from the play off places and one point off where Ian Holloway said we'd end up this season. I think it's fair to say that we're in the Championship for another season at least. That's why it doesn't bother me who comes and who leaves. It doesn't matter and it's not important. And I've been busy.

So matches today are fun, but that's it now. Win or lose doesn't matter. As long as in the summer Steve Bruce is only allowed to bring in a maximum of two players and Gabby and Richards are kicked out, then we will stand a chance. Don't do these things and we may well be stuck in the Championship for a long time to come.

But that shouldn't bother most supporters. Most don't understand what it's like to support a team with a chance of winning the League, so they don't share our passion or understanding. And you know what, I'm getting used to it. I know someone today that isn't going, they'd rather stay at home to do something else.

Nottingham Forest

So it's Forest today and this should be a battle and I know this because they are 3 points behind us in 19th. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Oh how the idiots are running the asylum. You know what, I'm going to watch the game, but right now I don't care.

So there is no real point in me talking about the match. I don't know or care who starts. I saw the manager say something about trying something new. I also saw that young player that got too big for his boots has signed a new contract and now everything is fine.

I have no prediction and if I had to bet, I'd bet on everything but us winning. If we continue doing what we're doing, we're going to ruin Steve Bruce too and I don't need to sit back to watch what I know is going to happen.

So, I'm going to come back for the football later. Sorry, but the Club is a bit of a joke at the moment and I'm not going to participate in it if I don't have to. There will be a match report tomorrow though!
