Walking into the opticians yesterday morning and then taking a seat in an already crowded waiting room, I noticed two elder gentlemen sat at the end of the row of seats.
One of the duo looked very resplendent in a Luton Town scarf and it wasn’t long before I picked up on the conversation they were having.
The gentlemen were talking about the home defeat inflicted upon the Hatters, by Birmingham City, on Saturday and in particular the performance of our record-signing, Simon Sluga.
Although tempted to add my own words of wisdom I opted to stay out of what was, I believed, a private conversation and, instead, chose to eves-drop.
The gentleman agreed that Sluga was at fault for the first Birmingham goal and should have done far better than he did but agreed that, what turned out to be the winning goal, was not his fault.
However, as I waited for my turn to be called, they also both agreed that James Shea would be the better option between the sticks, which, in turn, brought me right back to a poll I’d posted before the Birmingham game asking, if both were fit, which of Sluga or James would you give the green jersey to.
As it turns out, the poll agreed with the two elderly gentlemen with 65% of those who voted opting for Shea.
Now, if only Graeme Jones had listened!
Nottingham Forest v Luton Town?
Forest to Win!
Luton to Win!
