I have to say I had a lovely day yesterday . One of those special days where everything goes right. A couple of pints beforehand with mates and my son who was able to come for the first time in a while because he’s injured and wasn’t playing himself. I thought we played really well and thoroughly deserved the win.
There were some standout performances, notably Mavadidi, Aribo, Da Silva, Kashi and the returning Fosu. Credit to Robbo, there is so much pace in the team now, it ought to bode well for the rest of the season. Solly looked completely knackered for the last 15 minutes and probably should have been subbed but hopefully he will be fully fit for next Saturday.
Harry Lennon made a few mistakes, but part of this is because he gets the ball forward quicker with long balls of which , inevitably, more go astray. I am a fan , he is a no nonsense centre half and I think the fans need to be more supportive because we need more long balls to mix up the tactics.
On the way home , I was able to drop in on a friends Dad who is 95 and a lifelong supporter and had a cup of tea and gave him a summary of the game and left him a programme. He normally attends games but yesterday was a bit damp and cold.
Finally, I got home with a minute to spare for the village quiz show, which was great fun, a few more beers and to cap it all , a miserable Palace fan ( a lovely bloke) was on my team. All in all a perfect Saturday.
My only disappointment is the continuing low crowds – please come back now, Hopefully the misery of Duchatelet is nearly over now and we need you to help propel us to the Play offs , infinity and beyond……………
