    No flash in the pan

    Wierd doing a funeral visit a few streets from Anfield at the time the winning goal went in. Needless to say, the crowd reaction followed by lengthy recitations of that bleedin' song signalled how the game had gone.

    Kinda put me off my pastoral stride, knowing that that goal, combined with our own fine efforts at Newcastle, put us within a point of second place. Assuming I was a punter come out early from the match, the kids hanging round my my car after the visit asked me for money. I was so chuffed I nearly gave them some. It's great when these little lower teams help you out... but thirty points at this stage in the season is all our own work; this is no flash in the pan.
