Another Day Another Defeat - Even With Games Snowed Off
It never rains but it snows! I'm at home after being shunted up the rear on my way to work. Huge impact - I half expected to see Barrymore getting out of the offending car. Mine is a right off and I am now officially a pain in the neck thanks to whiplash! He, of course, was driving a BMW and, I realised afterwards, didn't even apologise!
So back home to still more bad news, with the club being found guilty on two charges over the crowd trouble at the Millwall game. At the time, I suggested heading all this off by resigning our place in the League Cup and offering an unreserved apology. I was howled out of court at the time but defeat in the next round at Bolton just illustrated what a clever PR stunt this would have been.
The club, led by Scotty D, of course knew better and, despite a rather miserable record in defending actions, decided to fight the charges. True to form, we lost again! Is there any truth in the rumour that Duxbury is a lawyer? If so, it's no wonder the guy isn't doing his day job, he's lost more cases than Perry Mason's hapless opponent. Just imagine turning up in court and finding Scotty is your brief! You'd arrive defending a charge of speeding and find yourself going down for 10 years for manslaughter. Mind you, Scotty would assure you all the way through the case that things were going tickety boo! "Don't worry, you will thrive in Pentonville!"
