Blue like a golden bucket!

Blue like a golden bucket!

Hows the nerves? Feeling OK? If you are a real fan then the tension will be churning your gut to scrambled egg.
And what do we find? More injuries and suspensions.

Cunningham, Upson, Tebily, Taylor all out plus Bruce out for five yellows, four of which he got with Tranmere!!

Latka and Painter are all that's left and although we may see the return to a full complement in midfield and attack we could be a bit like a golden bucket with a hole in it. Valuable but useless.

The two youngsters have done OK when they have been needed but have yet to play together.

Anything less than three points tommorow is unthinkable. Sunderland are almost free from the relegation fight and may cause problems. DJ ran them ragged a fortnight ago scoring twice for Brentford before his dream move. He could figure.

If Sutton gets on, he could be in need of a goal. He was likened to Dugarry who opened his account against the then cut adrift Mackems three seasons ago. The frenchman then went on a scoring spree which gave us respectability.

Forssell is starting to find the net on a regular basis but his main contribution has been in the cup. Heskey has had a mile rocket from Steve Bruce and needs a big few games and goals.

St Andrews will be rocking tommorrow as a full house is expected. Other teams in the area are begging their fans to go to games. We don't have that problem but they need the team to give them something to lift their spirits.
