GAME 43: CAERDYDD 2 FOREST 1

8 THINGS WE ALREADY KNEW BEFORE THIS MATCH

1. One day the sewer will collapse and Sky will drown in its own waste.

2. It is time people stopped making excuses for Warlock and simply admitted that he is an abomination. His teams play a game which is derived from the medieval tactic of catapulting boulders over castle walls, his attitude to football stinks of spiteful cynicism, and his face seems to have gone badly wrong. "He knows how to get the job done, though," claim his supporters. The same could be said of any terminal disease.

3. Forest played some very good football, but they badly need a goalscorer and defenders who can cope with set pieces. Really? Yes I'm afraid so. You do surprise me. Are you being sarcastic? Only a little.

4. We like Bridcutt, because he's good. We hope he will be given more game time, because he's good.

5. This "We're safe, so results don't matter" approach may work intellectually, but emotionally it sucks. Making enforced changes is okay, but playing people for the sake of giving them a last chance can end up pissing off a lot of supporters, especially if those people's inadequacies derail the whole match. It would be really nice if we could end the season on a high, rather than having to endure a series of experiments whose results are already known.

6. Ben Osborn is not six foot three. He's good going forward, but useless going upward.

7. We'll be glad when this season's done. It's not been up to much. There's been an awful lot of talking and much evidence of improved club structure and public relations, but all that stuff is just background noise when the team is struggling. To be frank, the only amusement left in this season is the ongoing farce up the road. Read the Derby forums. They're hilarious.

8. Yes we're cheesed off. We should have won that game because we're the good guys and Caerdydd are the devil's seed. Karanka said as much, but in a less blunt and decipherable way. Stress wishes he would speak more clearly. Stress wishes he would say "I am Aitor Karanka. You killed my father. Prepare to die," as he was meant to. One day he will, no doubt, but only after Stress has seen a doctor.

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.
