The eternal winter of the soul, plus hear HaL TALK about Exeter City

Friday, 8 January 2010

At the moment, Exeter's game at Norwich is one of only two games in the whole of League One that's on. Hardy people, these Norfolkonians. Anybody betting it'll get called off just as HaL pulls into Norwich train station?

In fairness, it sounds like the clubs' going everything to keep the game on and the pitch is looking good. We'll just have to hope the -7C temperatures tonight don't freeze everything.

Game-wise, the Canaries have come a long way since we drew with them in the second game of the season. Bumbling yet legendary shop assistant Bryan Gunn has departed the managerial hotseat and Paul Lambert has given the club a realistic chance of promotion.

But wait, what's this? Lambert is being lined up to take over from Owen Coyle at Burnely? Two moves in one season? Seriously, I moved less regularly than that when I was an impoverished student.

Not that it'll affect them too much, I wouldn't have thought. from our perspective any kind of result, even if it's a turgid 0-0 draw where the players simply pass in triangles for the whole game, would be welcome.

Deep down in my bones, I have a feeling we may just get something out of this. But then my predictions are often useless. The only thing that can be said with any certainty is that Marrrrrrcus Stewwwaarrrrrrtt will get a rather hostile reception from the locals.

And on that note, HaL was asked to give sensible opinions, always dangerous, on BBC Norfolk's The Scrimmage last night. Click 16 minutes into the show to listen to me waffle wildly inaccurate predictions.
