Notts County nick Martin Allen from relegation rivals Barnet Ex Imps director Ray Trew has done Lincoln City a massive indirect favour by poaching Mad Dog Martin Allen from Barnet in order to save Notts County from relegation. Mad dog has revitalised Barnet proving his bark is just as proactive as his bite when it comes to a relegation dog fight – the ultimate survival test of the fittest so to speak. Doubtless he is kennelling his way to the greener Meadow Lane with relish. Can Barnet continue their miracle escapology act without him? Bet they are ruing only chancing an 8 week contract, although beggars can’t be choosers with budgets the way they are nowadays.
