Bite tongue and count to 100
Another classic experience with a local company today, this time cable. I'm learning to bite my tongue and count to 100 pretty good. This is a long weekend here as Monday is Bermuda's Labour Day. Apparently lots of union speeches and festivities. Good for them, I'm going to stay in bed.
We are out for dinner tomorrow night at one of islands most formal and sumptuous restaurants (it says here
). A treat for my birthday, and I get to wear a jacket! In the morning I will try to hack into the BBC Radio Kent service for the Preston game - the club's overseas commentary agreement is taking a while to formalise, although with the closure of the transfer window and a free international week, one would hope it could be in place by the Donny game.
There has been a lot of talk about Pardew having a B plan following Saturday's romp at home to Reading, a team who we matched up with very well. Certainly our biggest examination will be once again against teams that stick ten men behind the ball or string five across midfield. We have the players still to perform in a midfield-five but I would like us to hone our Plan A first.
Preston have had a decent start and the mere mention of them reminds me of The Valley game last season
that I was home for, but we did beat them up there and played well. The spirit is good at the moment in Addick world, hopefully we can make it last a bit longer.
