Gudjon's gone - it's a surprise
We wish him well
   Paul Hart
   Gudjon Thordarson
   Luton Town
   Sheffield United

I heard the news on the radio this afternoon, and itís a surprise. The last ten games have been poor Ė we knew that, but we certainly werenít expecting Gudjon to go. It hadnít even been discussed as the gaffer had come in when the club was really struggled and turned a relegation threatened team into a promotion chasing team. Iíve a lot of respect for Gudjon, he was good for me, and although I didnít enjoy playing all over the park, I never blamed him because recently injuries had forced his hand. I wish him well and Iím sure that heíll be back soon, and that heíll do a job good.

Iíve also just found out that Paul Hart is our new manager. I know that our Chairman (Peter Ridsdale) rates him highly, and I also know that he likes to play football Ė and thatíll suit me. As ever, itíll mean that all of the team will have to prove ourselves, and those lads who havenít been getting a game will also have a chance to impress and get back into action. Training will be more competitive and everyone will be out to make a good impression. It means that we should see the benefit over the next few games, and if it comes, then itíll be a boost that should see us make the play-offís.

In facing Luton on Saturday weíll be up against a form team. I got a 90th minute winner at their place, but they played well and we know weíre in for a tough game. We then travel to Hillsborough for what should be a great game in front of 30,000 odd fans. Itís going to be more than interesting over the next few weeks, and I hope and think weíll be moving up the table.
