Southampton away. What was the score? 0-0
I listened to the commentary on BBC Radio London
in the car on the way back from Eastbourne to Heathrow and thanks to the bloody awful traffic on the M25 (where were these people going?) I managed to get the full 90 minutes and although it was nice to listen to us boss a match and play some good football I couldn't help but think we should have taken all the points.
It was another point to add to the total but it does annoy me that we can't kick these teams when they are down. Harry & Jim clearly have it all to do down at St Mary's and it will take all of Redknapp's plastic surgery skills in the window to turn the Saints from ugly ducklings into swans capable of surviving the dive into the Championship.
As for us, we never seemed in any danger defensively and it was poor judgement (or maybe it was the looming shop window) that inspired Redknapp to withdraw Crouch at half-time and not the out of shape Beattie to combat our midfield five.
Talking of which the midfield are becoming quite a unit after playing together for some weeks now but there is talk of some changes tomorrow as the holiday season starts to take its toll.
Euell, JJ and Stuart have all been mentioned and another goalless performance from Bartlett means he might get a rest. What was the score?
has been calling out for Jeffers to be untied from his leash on the bench and after frustratingly missing the game against Arsenal due to injury, tomorrow against his boyhood Toffeemen might just be the right time for him to start.
The game kicks off here at 9am. I will be tuning into the radio at my desk. By the way there was some great noise from the impressive 1,500 Addicks at St Mary's yesterday. I hope to hear more of the same on the radio again tomorrow.
Come on you Reds.
