Newsletter #39

This one is going out today as it’s already full! Normally Match Reports don’t roll in ’til Tuesday so hopefully we’ll get one for the next issue which I plan to send out mid-afternoon Wednesday with the latest news for the Cup match. Any offers of a Match Report will be gladly accepted. Some good news was that Gaudino played on Saturday and Paul Howarth told me he looks like he is getting to grips with English footie, at last! I was beginning to smell a fish there as he wasn’t being picked and nothing was being mentioned in the press. Hopefully it’s just a matter of fitness.

James Nash has suggested that people could put their email addresses alongside their signatures (it’s too much effort for me to do it) so as to promote contact etc. Sounds a good idea to me!

Next game, at home to Notts County, FAC 3rd round replay, 18th January 1995


The disastrous Cup exit is still trailing a wake of concern across Maine Road. The injuries are beginning to pile up again. Although Steve Lomas would have been sidelined under FA rules after being knocked out against Palarse, more news on him is even worse. He’s cracked his fibula just above the ankle and will be out for two months!! Flipper is also rated as doubtful after straining his hamstring in the CC Cup defeat. Quinn will also certainly miss the game with a calf injury also picked up in the CC Cup defeat.

Martin Ford & Andrew Wilde


In Howard Kendall’s first game in charge, Notts County beat Burnley 3-0 at Meadow Lane. Next stop… Maine Road.

Paul Howarth


Horton has been linked with the Bulgarian central defender from the World Cup. The one with longish hair and sideburns. Think he was called Ivanov. Price in
