No match tomorrow, over the years I’ve had a real passion for the National Team, we nearly got the job done in the Euros, (mens version), for whatever reason I’m on a bit of a downer re: International Football at present. It could be a product of Club Football being positive for the first time in years? Or it could be the impending World Cup? I’m under no illusions that atrocities span far and wide, but how has the World Game be allowed to effectively sanction/approve/ embrace this? It’s just abhorrent.
There was an opportunity last summer, just as in 1996 under Venables, there’s fuck all chance of us challenging? If only we had a 2nd team to cheer on?
It’s great isn’t it? A lot has happened already, I wasn’t at the Coventry game so wasn’t party to the atmosphere etc, but watching on TV from afar, my overriding though was this could be a long season? Bristol City was great, just fairly typical of a Championship game, (anything can happen?), since then we’ve been very good. above all else it’s just nice to not be so shit, it’s been dross for years, whilst I always enjoy everything about match-days, it shouldn’t be overlooked that it is also meant to be entertainment?
QPR and Norwich were frustrating, and we were garbage at Boro in the 1st half half, missed opportunity as they are poor, but Boro always going to a tougher assignment for us than others?
On the horizon
The fixture list looks favourable, very North West Heavy, you never know SAFCBlog might be reunited with Pothole Pete, the star of our last trip to Burnley?

No footie, but no reason not to have a good Saturday – have a good one whatever you decide to do.
