As usual, all the right noises are coming out of Carra and Colney. We’ve grown to accept it as normal, but it wasn’t too long ago that we were always told how unlucky we had been regardless of performance. Or how rubbish we were and how rubbish we, the fans, were.
But we’ve finally got someone who can do it right, even if repetition is a severe side effect tic. Then again things were a little different this week, we were told this week that our keeper’s ready for an England call up. More of a story would have been a player’s manager saying there is “no chance he’s good enough for a call-up”. Nevertheless, we’ve got yet another goalkeeper peering over the fence of England training to add to the England youth-teamers and our past numero unos. It’s fair to say fortune is aiding it, or fortunate retirements are anyway, but he’s been solid (enough).
We’ve also been told, along with how “brilliant they’ve been”, that our young guns have really stepped up. Again, the opposite would be more of a story, if worrying but it’s not just the young’uns that have stepped up, the squad has collectively. The sight of a calendar keeps this all in check, mind.
But anyway, onto the weekend. I’ve heard it’s a biggy, I guess it is inasmuch as they all are at this level. But daylight between us and them would go down a treat, as would a couple for Morison. He don’t half deserve it. A clean sheet would give that wheel another nudge toward an England cap too, and the defence in front of him deserves it. Especially RMart.
One game at a time and all that.
