Losing to Millwall – I’ve been going for 47 years now and we’ve been doing it consistently over that period . We’ve only beaten them once since the Crimean War when they finished the game with 3 men and even then it was a 90th minute disputed penalty.
I didn’t go yesterday because a) it clashes with my weekly exercise tennis and b) its a 3 hour round trip . Why bother when you know the result in advance.
To be fair and to take SCP’s point on board – we were missing our 3 best players , Cort, Solly & Kermit . Its difficult to win without them . Nevertheless I don’t understand how Pigott got the vote to start yesterday ahead of the more experienced, 30 goals at this level, England U-21, Sordell .
The midfield lacks an enforcer , bringing Hughes back at the end of last season transformed our results . Stephens deserves an award for the most square passes in a match – as far as I can see , he adds nothing at this level , no invention , no pace , no passing FORWARD . Pritchard & Jackson deserve better help.
Don’t worry though , there is one thing you can all be certain of – just like last year we will finish above Millwall .
We will win at Burnley ……………………..
