What a fantastic result yesterday – well done to all those involved in the heroic team effort. Most of the time I think Karl Robinson is talking nonsense , but I’m even starting to warm to his post match assessments.
He has been hugely assisted by the emergence of Aribo and Konsa which enables us to play a midfield full of energy which was the biggest problem earlier in the season. Providing the legs and energy around him has given Andrew Crofts the platform to show what an excellent player he is too. Quite what Slade was thinking when we lined up with Jackson, Crofts and Foley earlier in the season will always be a mystery.
Yes there is definitely some hope on the horizon, Forster Caskey gave a MoM performance yesterday , Nathan Byrne provides more pace and Ricky Holmes is due back any moment. The enigmatic Tony Watt seems wedded to the cause, at least for the moment.
Even our incompetent CEO has decided that if she doesn’t say ( or probably do) anything at all that’s what’s best for the club.
Oh and by the way , one for our idiotic owner, the one thing that apparently us stupid fans are allowed to comment on .
The beer and food in Crossbars have both gone downhill, Kronenbourg replaced by crappy Heineken, the food in The ‘ East Stand’ is terrible now – no more decent pies. At the last home game, the server told me that when I wanted a bacon roll , chef had said that she was only allowed to give out 2 ( cold ) rashers of bacon per customer ( perhaps the ovens are connected to the same boilers as the under soil heating) and on a freezing cold day in January, after the game there is no tea and coffee available. Thanks for all your great work in that area.
Despite this, on the pitch there are grounds for optimism at last. Let’s hope the mini revival becomes a full blown dash to the play offs.
