Particles of hope
I'm on my Mum and Dad's computer with about 8 windows open hoping to see that the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is continuing to spew out tiny particles of molten glass across Gatwick's two runways, BA's homepage telling me that Bermuda flights have been cancelled for a week (if my other-half reads this my balls will become tiny particles) and looking at train tickets from Paddington to Exeter.
Of course the chances are that I will have to go home before the end of the season, but I will see my second consecutive game tomorrow against promotion bound Norwich City and my son and I will drive up from East Sussex still with springs in our steps following the pulsating, if not classic win over Colchester.
First the Chicago Addick
family will sit down tonight to cheer on Huddersfield at home to Millwall. I have no idea if that is the result that we want, but I can't bring myself to cheer on the Spanners, so I'll worry about the consequences later
after the wine has worn off.
Still suffering from a stiff neck after watching Akpo Sodje attempt to win a header on Tuesday night I do hope that Burton is passed fit and starts alongside Nicky Forster. Probably not the ideal striking partnership, not unless we can learn to play the ball forward to feet. Otherwise Bailey has to begin the game in the middle and I would like to see Kyel Reid be given a starting berth, his direct play can't but help to give us more offensive opportunities.
Let's hope The Valley is in as fine as fettle as it was on Tuesday night and we can put those Canaries back in their cage.
