I have to admit, I feel a little deflated with the performances and results from the last two games, even though the club record of unbeaten games goes on. Burnley are closing the gap and we now have only three points more with a goal difference of two. Today’s game could possibly be the unraveling of LCFC.
I travelled to Blackburn for the match last weekend, good old Andy King got me two tickets. I went up with Jimmy Sehmi and met Nicholas Humphreys in Blackburn. We had a really good lunch at the Cavendish Pub in Bridle and sampled some of their finest cask ales! Then, off we went to the football. I was disappointed with the turn out of Blackburn fans, and they have a serious pigeon problem at their ground. I won’t deny that I was a little disappointed with the result, it should have been an easy three points for LCFC. Schluup put in a good performance, as did the ever-consistent Danny Drinkwater. When Nigel Pearson made his substitutions, I thought he made good choices and it was good to see Liam Moore on the pitch.
Tuesday night’s game showed a little fatigue and complacency from the squad. It was clear that Yeovil Town were desperate for points, but LCFC should have had an easy win. It was an incredibly frustrating game to watch. The lads created so many chances but in the end relied on the amazing Schmeichel to create a goal for Chris Wood. I will admit it was a fantastic end to a poor game but we should have had the points in the bag before stoppage time!
I really hope the second rate performance against Yeovil was a one off as we need to be on top form for the last few games of the season. This weekend’s match against Burnley is going to be the toughest yet. Burnley are on fire at the moment and LCFC will need to be on top form when facing them. If they just get a draw that will good enough for me. I think all the fans will agree that winning the Championship is a must; I’m not convinced that I’ll be happy with anything less but the gap between us and third is a great safety net.
Come on lads, not long now! I wish a speedy recovery to the one and only Nigel Pearson. Best of luck to all the players and the staff at LCFC for the up and coming games, they are going to be tough but I believe we can do it!!
My brother in law Terry is just starting his road to recovery after his operation. He is now in a wheelchair but still in hospital. I will be doing three fundraisers so watch this space!
I’ve had a call from Sky and have been invited for the Sheffield Wednesday match next Friday. Fingers crossed it’ll be a good win for us! I have also been invited to go to the Arsenal vs. Wigan game, 12th April. Lots to look forward to!
