Shrewsbury Again

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Apologies to those of you who have no interest in Shrewsbury Town or football in general but I just have to mention Shrewsbury’s second game of the season – Tuesday night’s game against Championship team Colchester which Shrewsbury won 1-0.  It was very nearly 1-1 in extra time but the goalkeeper managed to save a penalty kick.  Only down side is, he’s Scottish.  Never mind, even league 2 clubs have foreign players nowadays.

Which leads me nicely on to the fate of Derek Asamoah, the Ghanian international who currently plays for Shrewsbury.  Or rather, did play for Shrewsbury until he signed for the French team Nice today.  Lucky for him that they wanted him, though, because he went awol 3 weeks ago claiming to be ill but was actually undertaking a 3 week unauthorised trial for Nice in France!  The club have said that if he hadn’t been signed by Nice they’d have sacked him and even had the support of the players union which is unusual.  Still, they got £50k for him which is £10k more than I predicted when the rumours first started flying about a couple of weeks ago.
