... with Horrible Hornet Don Monty
MY last wise words were made a month ago. Since then you have a new manager, a new owner.. sort of, a new groundÖ well, maybe not, letís not get carried away.
Even this hardnosed Hornet couldnít help but give a slight nod of credit to your battling display at home to the Scousers.
You havenít had the better of a top side at home like that since those í80s glory daysÖ when you played on a plastic pitch, banned any other fans from turning up and made the opposition play blindfolded.
Or something like that. Still, the odd grin possibly appeared as the replay went a little pear-shaped. It wasnít so much the floodgates opening as someone building the Channel through your defence.
Time to concentrate on the league, guys. Still, at least you can cheer yourself with the thought that the Golden Boys still canít win at home in the league.
Itís eight games and counting now and after our keeperís howler last weekend itís hard to know where the next win is coming from. We might not go up. Youíve got to feel for us.
