In the meantime there’s a game
Another crazed week at work with no respite, which at least had taken my mind of checking constantly for news of a Charlton takeover. Suddenly though we are at Friday evening with a crucial game tomorrow.
Shrewsbury have had a wonderful season, which is analyzed very well here by the CAS Trust. Paul Hurst has done superb job, and is an outstanding young manager. Last season after arriving in October the first thing he did was shore up the defence and they continue to be very frugal, especially on the road. As the Trust article says he has also dipped into the lower league and loan market very expertly.
Tomorrow is Football for a Fiver. I hope there is a decent crowd, it’s very big game for us and with others from the top 6 still to come to The Valley you have to feel that if we can be shrewd and fearless enough we will be able to grab one of those top 6 places.
As for the takeover, Rick Everitt wrote kind of an no-update-update post here on VOTV midweek, and word has it that the Australian bidders and Duchatelet continue to be apart on price and there remains a stand-off. Nonetheless many facets of the deal have been agreed upon. In the meantime as Rick points out, RD is losing money hand over fist, and I’m content that the old bugger wants out. It is a waiting game, but in the meantime let’s get behind the boys. COYR.
