More on Gillingham…..

A Big Week Ahead…..

It’s a full week til we play Oxford, it’s a massive game, for the first time in ages we are actually in a position where we control our own destiny, i.e not reliant on others games in hand etc, its not going to be easy, but it is at least very doable. All seasons have defining moments, lets hope we reflect on yesterday, rather than the hapless surrender to Bolton, Cheltenham & Doncaster?

…..4.57pm …..
….. 4.58pm⚽️…..

Yesterday was almost hugely frustrating, the best moment of the day for me was Patterson Shithousing and time-wasting in the 96th minute, much to the fume of those lower league Kent jobbers, who had been playing for 0-0 since 3pm and time-wasting at any opportunity. Ultimately the only thing that mattered yesterday was the result, we weren’t brilliant, but I always thought it would be a tough game and we 100% deserved to win the game.

Keeping it Tight…..

Prior to beating Wigan 3-0, we had kept 8 clean sheets in 33 games, we’ve kept 5 clean sheets in the last 7 games conceding just 2 goals. We don’t look amazing at the back, during these 7 games we’ve seen Xhemajli strolling around, Wright air kicking, Bathh just booting it anywhere, Doyle has been taken out of the firing line…. ”er sorry for playing your teenage prospect in 46 consecutive games”….. but, if you don’t concede goals you don’t lose games. Credit must go to Alex Neil for this.

Ch, Ch, Ch, Changes…..

Much has been made the last few days about how the 5 subs rule is going to favour the stronger squads. Similarly our bench yesterday was ridiculously strong;

We have the best squad in this division, this has to be an advantage, but only if its utilised. Not for the first time Neil made bold changes early yesterday and ultimately it won us the game, again huge credit to the gaffer for this.

All Roads Lead To Oxford….

At least we’ll be allowed to watch from inside the ground on Saturday! It’s just a huge game, a tough game, a full house, that prick Karl Robinson etc etc….. all manner of high end digital content before the game ⚽️
