22nd Place: Our True Love
Forever By: Eric Hitchmo 12/10/2011

I have been so foolish in the past few months. Ever since Lawrie Sanchez came along, my head's been in a bit of a muddle. He had me believing I could do better. I don't know what I was thinking when I was chasing 16th place. I even thought I saw 7th place flirting with me for a while, that's how deluded I have become, but now all of that is over and I am so glad you have taken me back, 22nd place.

We belong together, we are like two peas in a pod. Let's be honest, I am not the best looking club in town, but you have still seen through that to welcome me back and I am so so grateful. I know I have been paranoid in the past. I spent an awful lot of time with 23rd place last year and I was just so low. I didn't know what I was thinking. When I saw you hanging around with Burton and Northampton for so long it just made me so jealous. I wanted you for my own and who could forget that day in May when we finally got together?

You made me feel so safe and wanted, despite what all the others were saying about you. Don't listen to them. All this rubbish about "oh 22nd would let you go for Hereford or Plymouth in a second!". You know they're wrong, and I know they're wrong too. Deep down, Hereford and Plymouth know that they could never get anywhere near you, it's us that are meant to be.

I know there are certain aspects of my personality that could stop us from being together. I am fully aware that having Izale McLeod in the team and the ever improving form of Ricky Holmes could tempt us into looking higher. I am also aware that the defence can be an absolute disaster which might mean that those other teams could come and pinch you from me.

It will take time and effort but I will try my best to balance out these strengths and flaws to make sure that we stay together forever, where we belong.
