sheffield united away. what was the score? lost 2-1
Well I think that's our lot. We have that
look don't we? Own goals and last minute defeats all conspire to have us looking like relegation probables. I know, I know there are 23 games left but whilst other teams in the bottom half of the table seem capable of picking up points and importantly wins, we simply are not. 14 months without an away game is a huge monkey on our back and home games are going to be fraught with nerves, and character is needed and unfortunately I don't see any leadership in the dressing room and that I regret to say includes Les Reed.
In my 31 years of watching football, I have seen many a team that has that 'relegation look,' including us previously and lets face it, it's written in permanent marker all over our faces.
Gillespie's goal was a hammer blow and might cause lasting damage. We led for a long while but we were always up against it. We battled but showed little quality when it mattered and the Blades sounded like deserved winners. I'm a very sad Addick today and while there's always hope, its diminishing with every week.You what Les?
