I HAVE had so much stick for my goal celebration against Torquay, it’s unreal.
I know it wasn’t the best of goals - and I got stick for that saying I should have kicked it rather than headed it - but no one has let me rest with my celebration.
I touched the captain’s armband and it was just a bit of a joke between me and the gaffer before the game.
Then I had stick off my team-mates, followed by even supposedly nice people like Mullers (Paul Mullin) and Kenny Arthur ringing me and abusing me.
Then I walked into University this week and there were five of my colleagues sat there with captain’s armbands on.
Some people like Bobby Grant get recognition for scoring goals, I just get stick!
I am seriously going to have to work on something spectacular - a back flip or or some dance moves or something.
Still that was a big win for us against Torquay. I thought it was a debatable penalty for their opening goal but then we came back strongly.
Phil Edwards is a cool customer for our penalties and he took it well.
I was cool for about 18 penalties and then it all went wrong but he is holding his nerve.
Then Joycey got his first goal of the season and Bobby Grant got 13 goals. He is such a young, talented lad that I am not surprised to hear rumours that numerous clubs are looking at him. Goals get you noticed for the right reasons - except mine!
The FA Cup game at Barnet on Tuesday was a huge win for us but it was the strangest 1-0 win I have ever been a part of.
I don’t think anyone could have complained if it had been five or six as we had so many one-on-ones. I missed one, Billy Kee did, Symesy did. I don’t know how it stuck at one and I don’t know how we missed all those chances.
Still the win was the most important thing and we will be ready for Gillingham next.
At Barnet, though, it was a superb atmosphere and the fans certainly deserve a word of thanks - quite a lot travelled for short notice on a Tuesday night and they were superb. Really noisy.
We were singing about "Going to Wembley" in the changing rooms after but it was only banter. We were just so happy to win, especially after the last-minute penalty at our place when it looked like the game had been taken away from us.
It’s another big week for us now with Notts County and Leeds and it is hard to take in at the moment as it just seems to be play a game, recover, game, recover – we haven’t even had a proper day off this week!
But it’s enjoyable when you are winning and doing well and long may it continue.
The new lads are settling in well. Dean Bouzanis has started coming out of his shell a little bit so we are getting to know him better. We just need some gossip on him now!
