Waiting, always waiting, but still no announcement of any new signings. It feels like the volcano is close to eruption, however, as it stands, it is still dormant. The squad numbers are still far too low, and Coyle really needs to work fast to bring in some quantity to the ranks, even if he can’t get any quality. I was hoping for some new faces before tonight’s friendly against the Shakers, and to be honest, as soon as I click “publish” and unleash this blog to the… few, I just know the Volcano will erupt and cause a small town in south west Peru to be evacuated (this fictional volcano eruption has caused no injuries).

I am writing this Blog while following the live happenings of our next pre-season opponents, Orlando City SC. They are currently playing the Rochester Rhinos and are leading 2-1 in the 67th minute, however, as the twitter feed has informed me, “we are currently in a lightning delay”. The casual phrasing of this tweet makes me wonder if this is a regular occurrence in the football leagues of the USA. I now feel slightly worried for the Wanderers when we take on “lions” tomorrow; I want my Paul Robinson to return home un-fried please.
