Agree with Lings having listened in tonight. Excellent 3 points against a side I expect to be at least in the top 8 this season. It's the comprehensive nature of our wins that's making things easy to take for me. With Clough, you was never easy with any win, there was always that doubt in the back of your mind, some niggling feeling that almost put you at edge regardless of how they won. I'm not saying it's easy, more the complete job was done.
A bit like Saturday. I felt a little injustice about Sammon's goal and the Ref was absolutely trying to let the the away team get something out the game but it was a complete job and it always felt like a complete job. I don't know if this is the Adkins effect but I like it.
I can't remember when we've had a more professional team to now. It's close knit, it reacts and interacts with the fans and they look bothered and that is all we ask for. The whole feeling is very positive throughout the club. Long may it live!
On a more semi-serious note. The Physio has called me today after an MRI scan I had last Sat(8th not 15th). Basically I've got a serious compression of the sciatick nerve on my right side, which has been causing me a lot of pain recently. Yes, I've aggravated it a few times, not intensionally but now they have to operate. As with most Ops, nothing is guaranteed and there is a degree of risk.
I've told Vamps a bit about it and he and Shadow have had much worse probs, as we all know. This is nothing compared to their ops in fairness. I just might have to give some grief to the lads following the home commentary on BP as I recover, bit of prior warning
I will ask if anyone going would like to take Ziah with them and can use my ST as it's of no use to me while sat on my ass for a few weeks/months. Just putting that out there if anyone's interested.
I'll be going under in a few weeks rather than months apparently so will effect my attendance (
