... Well, ok really. A couple of draws, a defeat and a win in the league and of course today's defeat in the FA Cup.
There are many positives that can be taken from the games so far. The players look like they want to play for each other, we seem difficult to beat and we clearly haven't reached our potential yet... Which is definitely a positive.
Negative wise, we haven't been clinical enough (Prescott aside), we have conceded soft goals, we haven't really had any luck with refs and we haven't met the standards of pre-season... Yet!
I hope I speak for all supporters in saying we are still very confident and optimistic. One thing we definitely appreciate is the way the lads are playing for Tom and the shirt, highlighted in the away draw against Mossley.
We go again on Monday, at home against Warrington. Us supporters will be right behind you and hopefully we can move on from today's defeat... Another combination of wasted opportunities, a bit of slack defending and poor refereeing (how was that not a penalty... And how was that their throw-in?). Once we click we know we'll be up there.
In terms of my own performance, well everyone who knows me knows I'm passionate... Sometimes overly so and I apologise to anyone I offended on the away day to Scarborough. A combination of alcohol and a wee bit more alcohol, (plus a bit of Matt B planting some seeds) equated to some loud and naughty language from yours truly! I know it's hard to believe!!!! Lesson learned, I mean what was I doing talking about politics anyway! Haha! But seriously, all I really care about is this club and winning games!!! Plus, I always get a bit giddy on the first 'away day' of the season!
I just want to say one last thing, it is ace to see Chrissy Mac playing the way he is, especially after last season where, and I hope he doesn't mind me saying this, he didn't look interested. He has come back looking fit,hungry and with tons of desire. Hopefully this will rub off on the other lads.
Up the Trafford!
