A cry for togetherness
God I had the hump yesterday. Trawling through the forums, it looked like I wasn't alone either. And there we were thinking how much fun this is in the fizzies, you know, knock the ball around, score a few goals, some nice little away trips, promoted at Easter with record points. Piece of piss.
Clunk! What was that? Reality mate, that's what that was.
I'm with Pards because I think he will do us alright. You ask West Ham fans, their promotion season was no easy ride. They lost 15 games and let in 56 goals and finished 21 points behind the champions, Sunderland.
The division being so open and frankly poop, is the real frustration and I am sure Watford fan's are having the same conversations. Expectations have certainly increased, and I'd imagine ours are a lot higher than those of Watford. Concerns are rightly over the way we are playing but a week full of tosh pales into insignificance over 46 games.
Pre-season I don't think I realistically thought we'd be in the top two at the halfway stage? And because I remember the last time we we were down here, I knew that fight more than finesse was really the insignia.
I for one had visions of us getting stronger the second part of the season, particularly walking away from The Valley following the draw with Scunthorpe. Plus Pardew is known to like to wheel and deal and this transfer window is certainly vital.
A cry from afar then for fan togetherness because for no other reason we owe it to ourselves. The club we love was once broken from no fault of our own. We were the glue then, lets this time not be the hammer.
