As ever, looking forward to a game with optimism and enthusiasm. It’s kept me coming back for more for decades. It’s probably the same phenomena as women giving birth a second or third time. They have this innate ability (so I’m told) to blank out the pain of the previous experience. Although watching us sometimes must be like having twins.
I’d like to see 3 at the back again today, but with less reservations about attacking. We’ve been near the top all season, yet it still doesn’t feel like teams are scared to play us. They should be, we shouldn’t be playing to nullify them
Some plum jobs may be coming up in the next few weeks so I imagine Neil will still see the last 2 games as must not lose rather than must win. There won't be any experimenting with players and formations and I expect today to be a 0-0, see if we can sneak a 1-0.
