I've always hated Thursdays. They are far too tempting to go out on the p!ss when it's nice weather, safe in the knowledge that you only have one day at work to get through before the weekend. They're also the day that people seem to be desperate to annoy me, because they are ramping up their workload before Friday's gentle meander through to close of business.
Had one from approx. 1997-2005, after which my Old Man stopped going with my Brother and I. Since then it's been University, sporadic away days, and occasional home games. But given the stability on and off the pitch, and the way McCarthy has built a strong, physical and hard to beat Championship side, it was a no-brainer this year (even if I do live in London).
I am absolutely DREADING what to expect of the people around my mate and I (lower north). I can handle angry p!ssheads, or sweary p!ssheads, but not the divs who scapegoat specific players and STILL have no idea how the game is played at this level. Can you get STs moved???
