Ok, it wasn’t great, but we quite simply got another three points.
Yes, I know, I’ve seen the stats, where it seems they were the better side.
Indeed, it sounded like it too.
But what more can we ask for, than getting the win?
I know it might not be too pleasant to watch and indeed Steve Bruce pretty much said we were rubbish.
But we still got the points.
Which is the point.
I assume you’ve got the idea of what this post is about and I won’t labour it.
I’ll move onto the performance and it was basically poor wasn’t it?
You know that if a side like Burton out-possesses you at home, you’ve played poorly.
There are hardly any individual performances to shout about, apart from maybe Mark Bunn, who kept us in the game.
Anyone still want to play Gollini ahead of him?
It’s nearly all quite disappointing really and there’s surely no doubt that Leeds are going to thrash us at home.
Except we have a manager who knows how to win.
Apparently he was fuming during the game and was even heard to say that “I’ve had enough of this”.
Which all suggests he knows exactly where our problems are and will look to sort things as soon as is possible.
It isn’t all going to happen in this window, but I’m willing to bet good money that we’ll see some of the rubbish leaving.
It isn’t going to be those that are highest on our list, but some will leave.
And Bruce will replace them with better quality.
Because he knows what’s required, whereas I don’t think we’ve had that sort of manager since, dare I say, MON?
To cut to the quick, we won.
Job done if we want to get promoted, even if it made for poor watching.
But the thought of this current side in the Premier league scares me.
