As some of our number sun themselves, SeasideEssexXile gives the definitive away guide from the frozen North.
The City Ground – Nottingham Forest
What a difference a week makes. Last week saw most of us fearing the worst, the manager said 4 points from 2 games was the target, and lo and behold target achieved – “Job Done”. Talking of jobs you want doing, our return to the City Ground, a favoured haunt for Pool over the last couple of years, brings us back in to contact with the nearly man. Nearly a Pool manager? We`ll never know for sure, one thing we do know for certain he`s nearly taken a few teams out of this division over the years- job done? Nearly.
How to get there
