|Match Report||Submitted on 12/11/2006 by John Elliott|
|After going home in somewhat of a depression on Saturday night i decided to wait and give myself a couple of days before writing my match report, for fear of just looking at all the negatives. So here goes-
We were fcuking shite. I am sick of hearing what a good side we have on paper. We field a side filled with too many below average players who don’t seem to give a shit, whilst the home grown players are left to sit on the bench. Fair enough, they themselves may not be brilliant, but at least we would see some passion.
The match itself was not worth wasting too many lines on. We should of won but couldn’t find a finishing touch, they scored off probably their only worthy attack. Mr roeders tactics, or lack of them, continue to baffle everyone.
The most depressing thing about this and previous home matches is the increasing attendance of the boo boys. I appreciate peoples right to express an opinion but surely we are better than that. That sort of behaviour is more akin to the stadium of shite, surely.
Personally, i think its time for a reality check. We are no longer one of the big teams in the league. Years of misspending by a fat comedian, some sub-standard managers and even more sub-standard players have got us to the situation we are now in. Probably only three teams have a shot at the title, liverpool will probably win one of the cups, and the rest of us are in a group of poor premier league teams.
However, on the bright side, the crack on the journey there and back and in the local watering establishments make the day worth turning out for. I think I will go back to treating each match day as a social occasion and forget the football. Drink, drink. Wherever you may be. Roll on the next game.
I will finish with a thought that always cheers me up………
It could’ve been worse; I could’ve been born a mackem.
