I suspect I was not alone in expecting us to wipe the floor with Man City on the opening day of the season. Boy were we in for a surprise. We weren’t at the races. Sven had marshalled his odd assortment of imports into a formidable attacking side. Elano was wondrous in the skills he put on display. We’d better be better today, otherwise our cup run will have finished before it has started.
I also suspect I am not alone in feeling rather flat after the Arsenal game, after the exhilaration of the Man U victory. We need to recover quickly from that. It seems that Bowyer and Etherington are back in contention, and if fit, I’d stick both in. I’m not sure if Scotty Parker is fit again, or Nobby. I got the team right against Arsenal, so let’s have another stab now.
We need to attack from the off otherwise they’ll not allow us to get into our rhythm. Let’s get at ’em!
