OK you probably think I’ve gone mad in a fit of Plymouth win inspired euphoria- but – and I’ve frequently banged on about this – football, much like business, hinges on momentum. Lee has created an attractive entertaining side, which is indeed better to watch than last season. The momentum is building, it’s not just the last 4 wins on the spin- it’s the way they are playing and the likelihood that it will continue.
Added to this, the manager is the most important piece in the jigsaw and he obviously knows how to pick a player – look at Taylor, Cullen, Grant, Bielik – and he certainly knows how to motivate them.
They don’t get bullied any more, we give as good as we get and they run their hearts out all game long. He also understands football tactics, when to play 442, the diamond, 3 at the back – all that stuff. Finally, he speaks calmly and sensibly and oozes common sense.
We should get promoted this season and if we do, the first season back in the championship will bring a Top 10 or possibly Top 6 finish because we will have the momentum. With a big slice of luck which we are well overdue, we might well go straight back up – look at Wigan this season who might do just that.
The obvious flaw in all of this is if our idiot owner decides to revert to type and start doing stupid things again. But so far so good. We can only hope that finally he realises its best to leave it to someone who actually knows what they are doing.
It would be nice to se the crowds returning. I suspect there really aren’t many ‘boycotters’ it’s rather that people got fed up watching us lose and play poor football.
Well to all of those who used to come , get your arses back down The Valley because it’s fun again and you will absolutely love it. If you are actually boycotting because of the owner, he’s not going to sell now until at least January, so you might aswell postpone your principles and come and enjoy supporting your team again
onwards and upwards and back to the Premiership with Lee Bowyer.
