I get really fed up when some articles I read says things like ‘we’re now top but after the Pompey game you would think we were bottom listening to some supporters’.
I have to say some blogs think it’s unthinkable to criticise the team when they play badly, we don’t, if a surgeon has a bad day, the patient dies, if a fighter pilot has a bad day, he dies, so when you see salaries of between £50 and £110k a week paid to our team week, and they play like a pub team, we the supporters are allowed to get pissed off when we don’t win.
If I was a Derby County fan fair enough, they are not good enough and they don’t get paid as much, but we are and we do, so if we want to moan, we can.
Work out the ratio to what you the fans earn and how much it costs per game, and that should include food, drink and the cost to get to each game, then you’ll see you have the right to comment, you paid for it.
Players even get their food paid for, when was the last time your company paid for your lunch or dinner, Christmas I bet.
So my point is, I don’t begrudge what my team earns or eats or even how many days a week they work, but if they have a bad day at the office, we all have the right to be a little fed up, and that my friends doesn’t make us heretics.
Having an opinion stops you being a sheep, that’s all.
Onto football matters, it’s now common knowledge that we beat Everton by employing the long ball, which in my book is plan ‘C’ with 4-5-1 plan ‘A’ and 4-4-2 plan ‘B’ so I was delighted that we scored 4 away and at the ‘Home of the Bullies’
If we can mix some of all the previous plans at certain games, we can beat any team on the day.
By that I mean if we start say 4-5-1 and it’s not working, why can’t we just adapt another formation when needed and drift back if we need to?
We decided to show you a clip of Samir Nasri to give you as taste of what could be coming our way next year, enjoy!
West Ham tomorrow and revenge for our only defeat at the Grove.
Happy New Year to all.
