Best Performance at Elland Road, there is no doubt in my mind that Becky is the clear winner (and following Paul Green’s performance at Birmingham I wouldn’t be surprised to see her take his place). As a supporter it would take some doing to beat Andy Mac’s against Brighton!
“Best Attendance record”, Sam Wright boasts a 100% record suffering every match this season. This also places him high up in the “No of pints consumed whilst going to watch Leeds.”
“How did I get there award”, In the end I decided to split this into three sections, as there were so many nominations.
For solely getting to the game Liam is the winner of the Reggie Perrin excuses. Every Saturday Liam Kirby would leave Nottingham Trent University Campus (except when he is delayed by security for trying to walk off with their laptop) five hours before kick off. He would walk down the A453 and catch the 53 bus. Get off in Market Square, walk up Beastmarket Hill and head for the coach parked outside Nottingham Cathedral. The bus has left and Liam randomly decides when to ring up and announce his reason for being late. (You can see Liam’s own words in the comments below, but to hear the full story you will have to buy his book, or read his blog!).
For returning home it has to be Graham. Who is modest in saying there isn’t much of a story to tell (again see Comments below for his version of events). But basically he got on the wrong train home and fell asleep at the end of the line. Which just happened to be Worksop. It could have been worse, I guess…if they did overnight trains to Inverness from Nottingham then I think Graham would have won the award outright.
No surprises that Sam Wright gets a mention in this category for the round trip he did to Burnley taking 36 hours. (Again see comments for his version).
The “Most Drunken performance”. After much deliberation Paul Wardhaugh is declared the winner for his performance at what he describes as his best day out with Notts Whites……what I remember of it. To turn a lethargic 3-0 defeat on the pitch, to your best day out must have taken a lot of beer.
Jordan could have won it, but not making it past the turnstiles at Sheffield Wednesday means that effort doesn’t count.
