Everything was set for a fantastic day at Ewood yesterday, the weather and the atmosphere were great. But it was not what we had hoped for after a fantastic match away against Arsenal.
There are both positive and negative things to look at.  The negative side irritates the most. We could not grab the opportunity to take a BIG step away from the bottom three. We were unable to produce enough and we didn’t make the most of the chances we had . AND once again we just didn’t have the margins on our side. Birmingham’s goal was offside, we hit  the crossbar and  they saved on the line.
The positive is that we got back in the game. Nice and cool of Junior ,who has really had  a breakthrough this year! GREAT:-) Finally it was  all up to us and we should have won the game.Unfortunately we did not!

My own effort was not the best of the year. Maybe because I’ve been “signed off “for a few days, although it is no excuse. We all have to sharpen for the Everton game away! I was pleased with most of my setpieces, which also caused some problems for them.

This week we will prepare  properly for the Everton game. The remaining matches  will not be any beauty contests. We will FIGHT like lions!!

Thank’s to all the supporters that never give up!
One for all, all for one!

Hope you had a nice Sunday. Today I have  enjoyed the nice weather here in Manchester:-)
