It seems that I should write something contraversial more often...I received more comments on my last post than I have on any previous other post! I did reconsider reading that book, however my girlfriend had already taken it back to the library and come across the first of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, 'The girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. I've read it now and its brilliant (obviously - it wouldn't have been so popular otherwise). I'm now on the second book but not yet seen the third in the library. I might have to get lucky.
This week Sheffield Wednesday almost went into administration, and to be perfectly honest I don't think the extra month they have will make any difference. If somebody truly wanted to invest then they would have done it by now. What worries me even more is the interview given by the Chief Exec. outside the court. It was described as passionate, but to me it just looked desperate. The worst thing is that we are playing the best football than we have done in many years and look like we might have a chance of promotion back to the Championship after just one season. But a ten point penalty will scupper that. Our best chance seems to be to win as many games as possible over the next month and hopefully we'll be outside of the relegation zone after the deduction. Then, we rebuild from scratch.
On a more positive note my girlfriend signed with a teaching agency this week and with some luck will start getting some offers of work. I myself start as a permanent employee on Monday.
