IT’S been a week to file under ‘a bit of a mare’ for the Thieving Magpies manager.
Flying high on top of the league since 6 December, at times it’s felt like it would be 12th time lucky for one of only three managers to enter every season of the competition.
Pantomime villains lurk around every corner. In the notorious ‘Tactical Brambler‘ the Kenna has a villain made to order and he’s been delivered to knock the ‘Pies from the top of the Kenna League.
The skullduggery does not stop there for Thieving Magpies. The Pirate has knocked them out of the Narcozep Cup.
“It’s a blow, there’s no doubt about that,” said the man who after the cup draw joked on social networking site Twitter he may rest key players for the tie.

The Pirate goes on to face Cowley Casuals in the quarter final first leg this weekend.
The Tactical Brambler kept his hopes of an unprecedented third league and cup double alive by sweeping aside Lokomotiv Leeds.
The chairman goes on to face the club of another committee member the Walthamstow Reds manager.
Should AJFC win, the chairman could face yet another executive peer in the semi finals in the form of the Burqini Pool Party manager.
