GAME 45
CITY GRAHND
FOREST 1 WONDERBRAS 1

Well...
Forest brought their kids, Wolves didn't; Doris got knighted; Forest had their periods of pressure, as did Wolves; Wolves had a lot of shots, Forest had a lot of shots; Wolves' Mason scored a beauty, Forest's Gardner scored from a peach of a free kick; either side could have won, or lost, or drawn; somebody stole a big ball; both sides seemed artificially disappointed with a draw, the whole match was played under a foggy blanket of possible future developments, people applauded politely at the end, and everybody went home and had jam for tea.

We've seen worse seasons, but none quite so drifty. The sense of drift has come from the top, for though much of the season's woes can be laid at the door of injuries and embargo, they have been exacerbated by the misdirection and lost opportunities which have characterised the running of the club. Even now, with Mister Fawaz absent from the match trying, we presume, to cobble up some investment deal, the future of the club is the subject of rumour and speculation and continued drift. Periods like this used to bring their own form of excitement, but the excitement soured long ago. This time it's deadly serious. The people who are charged with the stewardship of the great old club, whoever they are, need to make some bloody hard headed decisions over the next few days and weeks, otherwise we'll just drift away.

To be honest, the (to be continued) thing was simply me waiting to see how Leicester got on, with a view to congratulating them on their triumph. I listened to the match on 5 live for a bit, but was so sickened by the sycophantic drivel issuing from the commentators' mouths that I had to give up. Indeed, when one of them said "You can feel the love for Leicester right around the world" I almost vomited. The only thing which stopped me from gagging on sour grapes was Wes Morgan's goal. Good old Wes.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time; and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.
