'If It's Football, It's Vital'

And we're off...

It's taken two months but the inevitable seems to be upon us as Nicky Maynard starts packing his bags. That kind of talk may be a bit premature at the moment it's hard to see past a departure for Nicky before August 9th.

When he was scoring his 11 goals in the last 9 league games of the season you always knew it was probably the last we'd see of him, always looking that class above as he almost single handed dragged us away from the gloomy League Two.
