Another Bad Day At The Office

Despite the rather pessimistic title, let me first of all wish you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
So then let’s get straight too it. Tonight was an awful result and I think for me personally it was more hurtful than the absolute kicking we get from Chelsea. I had looked at the fixtures of Stoke, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Wigan and had predicted 5 points from 15. We have had two very very poor performances, however IF we do manage to beat Wigan that will mean we got 7 points out of 15 and suddenly December doesn’t look too bad does it?
Quite simply there are no positives to take away from both games. The Chelsea game I honestly thought a 4-0 or maybe 5-0 loss. In fact I even posted on Facebook stating anything but a heavy loss should be considered a good result. Obviously the final score was embarrassing for all concerned. I thought the Spurs game would be very difficult for us. We were playing a club that has come on in leaps and bounds, and in Bale they have a genuinely World Class player and he proved that in a fantastic performance. What concerned me was that in the first half I think I am right in saying we had maybe one shot on goal compared to their 11 and we were the home team. I think we were all expecting a grand response and what we have got is a reality check has to how far we are from the best.
I think is paramount now is that we spend wisely in January, but we REALLY do need to buy. It mustn’t be the grandiose panic buy of a couple of seasons ago, but we do need a central defender, an attacking midfielder who can link up the play and another striker. (A winger wouldn’t go amiss either). January will be against us there will be a number of clubs in a similar position, but hopefully we can edge them out.
We always knew this season would be a roller-coaster and we have reach the trough of the track and what faces us is a slow ride back up to the top again, but as I have said before. More than ever now, we HAVE to stick up for the club. Many will see these 2 results at the proof we should sack PL I still maintain he is the right man for us. Give him the time and we will get there.
Being a fan is about supporting your club through the rough times as well as the good.
Keep the faith and UTV.
