I will start with the cliché – “the table doesn’t lie” after 45 games and the play-offs are now looking a long shot. After a long season of ups and downs, we are now relying on results elsewhere today to leave us with a last match finale against Forest. I have to say that it is now an outside chance only of reaching the play-offs and it is more likely that we will be dishing out the same gutted feeling to Forest that I woke up with today!
I have been saying all season that the club needed strong characters in amongst the technical abilities and last night was another example of what seems to be missing. We played well enough in the first half, but two goals were scored against us, and we never responded with the fire and desire the Manager would have expected. I know the second goal from Chalobah was a wonder goal, and one was pulled back by Harry Kane, but I think we all knew another just wasn’t going to come and the season is likely to end with a whimper and not a bang!
I am not sure what will happen next at the Club, but I will be sitting watching Sky Sports and Jeff Stelling as the results come through and I have never been so keen to see Blackburn and Cardiff get 3 points today!
A final comment about last night is a fantastic well done to The Birch for another amazing effort with his annual charity run!
A night to forget for me was last Friday as I had a tooth out followed by a car accident (not my fault of course) but still feeling it. I will be there at Forest no matter what! Just hope our play-off chances are still alive.
I took part in a Q&A with Matt Elliott last Saturday night and relived some of our memories of playoffs. We both agreed that if we could have one wish it would be for us to beat Forest at Wembley this season – that would be bigger than me scoring the winner v Derby… Well not quite.
