After reflecting on yesterday's game.. and reading and hearing that has been said.. you can almost feel there is a sense of realisation from most fans and people that we are going to facing relegation after just one season . I mean I really hate to be talking about this and we havn't even finished August yet
But after looking at the next 3 fixtures.. which are Liverpool, Newcastle and Arsenal.. ermm I think if we can have maybe a couple of shots on target tha t would be pleasing.. but honestly you can write off Liverpool and Arsenal straight away as 2 defeats.. ermm maybe Newcastle at home.. possibly a draw maybe even a win.. as they don't play well away from home from time to time. But even then thats optimisitc
No-one said this season would be easy... but you almost get the feeling that we are going to be depressed nearly every game this season.. which begged to think about this question.. Which situation would you rather us be in?
1. Playing in the Premiership, always in the bottom 3 and never really getting any points
2. Playing in the Championship, winning every week and always in the top 3 for the season
Some may so.. that is one the most ridiculous statements ever to be made, but it some ways its a valid point because point 1 is in most cases what happens to teams that get promoted from the championship.. we said last year getting promoted would be awesome but I think most of knew in the back of our heads that with that particular team.. it would be an uphill struggle all season
As we come into the last week of the transfer window.. as I said yesterday this is going to be a critical week for our season.. because we need new players and as Davies bangs on about every week ' the real team' will show up in September when the new signings are here.. I hope this is certaintly the case and we start to perhaps gain some points here and there!!!
Another point from yesterday's game.. I think for the first time, Howard was absoloulty dominated in the air by both Ridgewell and Jaidhi.. ermm which begs the question that me n papa were discussing.. if he is dominated in the air like that.. is any use having in the team if that is the case?.. obviously im not saying droppin him but im just raising the point
As you can tell.. im tryin to remain a bit positive about things.. its still early days yet but lets be realistic about it as well
