    Remember, every time Derby have won a game, they have scored more goals than the opposition. If Derby are to win this game as we have been told they will, there should be a veritable goalfest in the last 30 minutes.

    Almost taken out last night as I rode up New North Road by a cyclist who joined from a side street without looking. I was about to remonstrate when I realised that he was on his phone talking away and to oblivious to his surroundings. Rather than express my views I thought I would allow him to finish his call and see if he could manage that without becoming a statistic. Pleased to see no black logo this morning.

    Last Wednesday night I was struck really suddenly with a ghastly head cold. I rode into work on Thursday wrapped up like a good 'un but by mid afternoon had to concede that I was getting nowhere and grabbed a cab home. On Friday I had a breakfast meeting and so came in by train, went to the meeting, returned to the office and felt atrocious. By 1pm I conceded and cabbed home again. Straight to bed. Woke on Saturday feeling much better. I took it easy over the weekend and did not ride at all. On Sunday I drove to the office and picked up my bike and some other stuff.

    This morning, I set off in the dark at 6:40am from home for the three mile ride to the City. Traffic was fairly light but the road surface was wet. For some reason I felt very uncomfortable on my bike and became overly concerned about skidding off on manhole covers. I rode really gingerly. I was tense on the bike. I had morbid thoughts of crashes; realisations of my own mortality.

    Very odd. Not pleasant. Wouldn't want to repeat.

    1/10

    Corney, dear chap. Three points but not exactly a good performance. A very lucky three points. Could easily have lost.

    I will miss you all too.

    I was pleased to squeeze Joseph of Derby in for Damo and to get a good mention of the Florists in there fore your personal amusement.

    Nothing about tents. I need some material spare in case you are promoted.
