DELIGHTED Efe Sodje today fired out a warning to Town's Division III rivals and whoever they draw in the Carling Cup.
The 30-year-old Nigerian World Cup star made a dream debut in last night's impressive 2-1 win against First Division Derby which puts Peter Jackson's side into Saturday's second-round draw.
Sodje - excused the post-match warm-down in the McAlpine pool because he can't swim! - wowed a crowd of 6,672 (the third highest of the night) and then insisted this is only a start.
"I want to play for people who have passion, like the management and fans at this big, big club," said Sodje today.
"I spoke to Sammy McIlroy about this place and he said the fans were nutcases. I like fans who are nutcases!
"They were unbelievable last night and, while I might have played in the World Cup, that is in the past. This is now and this is the future - the whole club is fantastic and I'm enjoying my football.
"Who wouldn't in a team which plays with such belief?
"And whoever we get drawn against - even a Premiership side - are not going to fancy coming here with our fans roaring us on like they did last night.
"We need the fans like that every week and we will give them 100%. I have told the manager we are too big for Division III and I'll be disappointed if we don't go up."
Sodje will again wear his blue and white Bandana at Boston on Saturday which features the phrase `Against all odds.'
"When I was starting out at Stevenage, people said to me I wouldn't get to the higher grades," he explained. "I wore it all the way to the World Cup."
As the second round isn't played until September 23, Jackson is keen to focus on Saturday's League trip and has chief scout Jeff Lee watching Boston tonight.
"The never-say-die attitude the lads showed is exactly what I'm after - and so is the support we got from the fans," said Jackson.
"While we were disappointed after Saturday, we responded in just the right way and showed we can be a force in Division III.
"The workrate and commitment could not be faulted and the thing I particularly liked was the tackling - we took no prisoners.
"As a club, we need to progress for the money but I'm not bothered who we get in the draw. We'll just give it 110% home or away."
Jackson praised the whole team, who were watched by scouts from Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Newcastle, but added: "Sodje was outstanding and will prove to be a fantastic signing for this club and a huge, huge crowd favourite.
"You won't find a better young striker than Jon Stead outside the Premiership at the moment either, but the desire of everyone to play for Town was there for the fans to see, and that's all they demand."
