Ladeezs and Gentlemeeeen, it gives me great pleasure….
To announce an excellent win, where there was literally nothing to complain about.
My God, how nice it feels to say that.
We got the first goal, that I felt was always going to be important, but even if we hadn’t, I just got the feeling that things clicked today and we’d have won this whatever.
The major thing I noticed, was that we seem to have moved away from constantly giving the ball away and we are knocking it around very nicely at times. So much so, that I think we just had too much for the home team.
That in itself is a pleasure to say, because with our resources, that’s simply how it should be, at least occasionally.
Make no mistake, there was nothing to criticise today and saying that gives me such a good feeling in a world where some have me marked as a big pessimist.
Adomah’s first goal was fortunate, in that their defender messed up and the goalie seemed to bottle it, but sometimes you need a sequence of events like that and let’s just say it balanced up our bad luck against Boro.
It seemed to relieve some pressure though and from then on, it was pretty much plain sailing, where I thought we controlled the game from back to front.
I’m looking for bad points, just to keep the balance, but I really am struggling.
The defence had Barnsley in their pocket.
Johnstone looked very comfortable.
It seems some coaching worked, with some nice doubling-up in our LB position.
Kodjia looked lively, even though I didn’t expect much out of him after his injury.
Adomah got two goals.
We kept a clean sheet.
And the young lad Kienan Davis got his first professional goal, after having played superbly in leading the line.
What a player he’s looking to be.
And I’m just going to leave it at that.
I’m going to sip a few beers, safe in the knowledge that if we can keep that sort of performance up, we’ll romp this league.
But the question has to be: Can we?
