Three teams promoted, Wolves ran away with it in the end yet are struggling....Lets be fair..I keep raising this point, if Kev Phillips hadn't scored 20 seconds from the end ofthe game in the 93rd minute, in our FIRST game of the Championship season, Blades and not us would have been playing Chelsea today. Burnley are keeping afloat on the strength of their home form.....Will it be enough?
Previous seasons show that One promoted team will get relegated straight back down, one will struggle and maybe stay up by the skin of the teeth, maybe not and one will do well. True to form this apperars to be happening, BUT WHO can put their hand on their heart and say they thought it would be Brum. doing well..anyone ? I can't. So what is this all down to?
Was McCleish being held in a stranglehold by the old board, and now has a mandate to manage and play the game as he sees fit ? Too much of a coincidence if you ask me.
The game today was a fair result. Chuchos goal was good, but in fairness, Joey Hart kept us in it. Another point on the scoreboard, 4 more wins will see us home and dry...and who thought we could say that at the seasons start. Bring on the Villa I say.!
Right I'm off for a Chinese. Mr Yeung what do you recommend?
