    Favour from an old boss...

    When I first read that the Chelsea game had been postponed, I thought it was a benefit as it gave us more time to recover from the Basil/Basle/Basel/Baal trip.
    Now I'm not so sure. I don't like the thought that we end up playing catch up rather than the other way round - as irrespective of whether there are games in hand or not, there appears to me to be an advantage in having the extra points in the bag. Obviously though, if that Woolwich bunch fail to capitalise on the intervening games, then the pressure falls back on them and the gap would then have a benefit.

    Irrespective of the benefit of the Europa itself, I think the Basle game takes on a massive importance for us. A decisive win would give that boost in confidence again, but if we play poorly and/or get stuffed then AVB will have a task on his hands lifting the team for the Chelsea game.
