Quite simply, I thought I might take a look at the month of January.
And although I could hardly believe it myself, it’s actually not that bad, when it comes to games played.
Yes, we drew at home to Palace, lost away to Leicester and lost at home to Liverpool in the Prem. Not good.
But we also beat Blackpool and Bournemouth in the FA cup.
Ok, ok, I’m clutching at straws, but moving on in the cup many years ago would have been seen as a very good thing.
The fact is though that the Premier league is miles more important and we had poor results either side of January, which makes things look much worse.
Don’t shoot me though; I’m talking about January and nothing else, in other words.
As for the transfer window, well that has to go down as the biggest damp squib winter window ever, in my opinion.
We seemingly did well, in signing Carles Gil and Scott Sinclair, as both are the sort we require and at a quick glance, have looked decent.
But I’m sure many will agree that it just wasn’t enough, was it?
Lambert practically killed any hope we might have had of the club spending some serious money, when he said he couldn’t see anyone else coming in.
Similar to Lambert’s footy, my only thought there was “what a killjoy”, especially as I know that many love the speculation that the windows brings.
And then, it seems he did a 100% U-turn and tried to sign Rickie Lambert at daft money and probably a similarly daft long contract.
I’m actually glad we didn’t get him, but that’s by the by.
The annoying part for me was that we apparently had nothing to spend and then all of a sudden, did.
Which just sums up what’s going on at the club, in my opinion.
Anyway, now, I’m interested to see where you think we’re going to finish at the end of the season.
Should I make the choices go as high, as say, 8th?
No, probably not.
