Merthyr Part-X Outlet. Part 10: Valley Boys | @Emsonite

This episode is all about the promotion push. And it gets off to a bad start when on-loan Purse is sold under our noses by Blackburn. They still owe us a player!

We do manage one trade at least. Bit of a punt but this Georgian fella has been balling it in the Premier League. Alex Rae was wanted by OG Dons. Srelia is our record signing and on big wages. Has a non-promotion release clause. Will it be worth the risk?

8 games to go. 2 points behind 2nd place with a game in hand. 
A tight match against the Boro goes our way at the end thanks to our Aussie. Strewth. 

Our game in hand against Oldham. A win would take us 2nd. But we can only manage a draw. 

Defeat at the City Ground.

Back on track at home to Oxford. Our Samurai front 2 finally turned up. 

Erik Nevalnd spoils the party at Elm Park.

How we didn’t win at Molineux. Endless goalline scrambles and a disallowed goal to boot.

2 games left and the 6 teams are separated by 1 point.

It’s tighter than a nuns clunge. 

Looking like another draw vs The Brummies but Griffo wins it with 4 mins to play.

2nd on goal difference. If we win at Charlton these bunch of cast offs are Premier League. Is it fate that this Valleys teams fate will be decided at The Valley.

Charlton are 20th in the league. But I don’t expect them to roll over. 

Tanner strikes early and it’s looking grim. But Winston equalises before half time. And just when you need your captain to step up, Jon Newsome puts us in front and we manage to hold on.

We got Ben Roberts to thank today. We were absolutely battered in the last half hour.

Promoted on goal difference!

Let the party begin. 

Premier League and Uefa Cup campaign coming up. See you next week.
