It would be nice to actually have some sort of run in the FA Cup and to get to the first round proper again. Much has been said about Martin Ling being the last person to get a win in this competition seven years ago but you have to go back to the buckle era when we actually strung a few games together to get to the third and fourth rounds respectively and to some extent managed to offset much of the spending deficit at this time. Just a pity we couldn’t win that Crawley match.
The change in the mood music around the club shows why managers are changed in football as regularly as they are and in our case a decisive and inspirational appointment has been made as opposed to the last appointment where the opportunity there was lost to our cost. With extra competition for places and the desire to impress I think we will at least do enough to win today.
My son is coaching gymnastics until 12:45 so will be watching the game on a 20 minute lag, at least in the first half....
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
A thoroughly enjoyable watch but lets not forget the standard of opposition. Would have been happy with a 0-3 but seven is a bonus and will do the players confidence the world of good. Great to see us press and play for the full ninety minutes plus stoppage time, thats been missing. A thoroughly professional performance with every player looking for and wanting the ball - just what I expect to see with GJ now in charge.
Some very good performances out there, we looked better than NLS today lets hope we can build some real momentum off of the back of this.
