After the Norwich defeat where to next?

For the first 30 minutes Norwich looked as edgy and un-confident as a side who hadn’t won for 3 months can look, but a few balls in behind our back four and chances created lifted their confidence. They were the best side for the last hour of the game and deservedly came out winners against our not very gladiatorial performance. So the poor run and dismal football continued – Stuart Gray type results, football and league position whilst spending so...

Another dispiriting afternoon in S6 and surely time for a change

You know things are bad when they start to interfere with the post-match drinking session. Whilst the rest of us gamely gave it a go there were two empty chairs yesterday. Nick had sat with his head down all through the half-time interval (and – strangely - failed to be cheered up by two of us spending that same interval chanting the word “Meggo!”). By ninety minutes a big beaming smile had returned to his face but then came that...

Thoughts After Another Poor Home Performance

For me Championship clubs tend to fall in one of 3 categories:

Category 1 These are clubs who are in receipt of PL parachute payments, or who have substantial gate receipts, or are breaching FFP, or are dabbling in innovative but potentially costly gambles with how player signings are funded. There will be some with more than of these elements.

Category 2 At the other end of the spectrum there are other clubs who have neither big gate receipts, nor parachute payments,...

An open letter following the win at Villa

Dear Carlos,

First, let me congratulate you, the coaching staff and the players on an excellent performance and result at Villa Park. The whole team were on top form from the off, we never looked under pressure at the back and were a constant threat to Villa’s defence. They have a very expensively assembled squad and an exemplary home record and we made them look ordinary in the first half. It was not surprising that we came under more pressure in...

Reflections on 2 home games and where to next?

After the double defeats against Bolton and Derby we went into the last two home games under pressure to get the cart back on the wheels. I thought we started well against Barnsley by moving the ball quickly with Reach prominently getting into the box as well as being active down the left. The goal was a bit fortunate but on the balance of the game it would not have been unjust if we were 2 or more up at...

A look back at the week in SWFC land

The last time I watched us win at Pride Park was in May 2006 in the last game of the 05/06 season when we stayed up in the Championship under Paul Sturrock, a lot of water has flowed down the River Derwent since then! I travelled down on Saturday with no great expectations of a win, but whatever hopes I had evaporated when our midfield and defence parted like the Red Sea to allow Vydra in, and then the most...
