Newcastle away. What was the score? Drew 0-0
4 points from 2 games in hand is a very respectable return bearing in mind the opposition. A miserable combination of work and computer problems overtook me yesterday so I have no idea what actually happened although by reading various reports and seeing very brief highlights last night on Fox Soccer Channel
, I am happy with the result, one we would have happily taken last time in the snow and before the season started. It was a precious away clean-sheet and it was nice to read that it was us that looked the more stronger in the final 15 minutes.
With both Romm and Thomas injured, I personally thought it was a more attacking move playing Holland in lieu of Smertin. Holland can be a match winner and honestly when was the last time Smertin even managed to get an effort on target?
Darren Bent it appears was once again a handful, and Spector turned in another improved performance in a Perry inspired defence. Onto Villa at home on Saturday.
It was funny to read in the Club's email bulletin today that a local newspaper called us so boring that even having snowballs thrown at us makes news. Oh, Ms Townsend, you really were a nerd when it came to public relations weren't you?
