You’ll have to forgive me.
It’s silly shutdown season at work and the last week has involved 7 twelve hour shifts, plus an hour’s travel each way.
It’s real physical stuff too, so I’m bloody knackered and really not able to keep up to date with what’s been going on, in what’s been a torrid week for the club.
The good news is that I only have another week of this to endure (hmm), but I’m seriously beginning to think that I’m getting too old for this stuff.
So while I just sneaked home in time to watch and comment on the Hull game, that’s about as much as I’ve been able to contribute this week.
I’ve actually been tracking your comments as best I can, to keep myself updated, so thanks for that lads.
Not that I’m totally au fait with who we’ve brought in.
The big news is that we managed to keep Grealish. And while he’s a bit disappointed, he’s happy to “get to work”.
We signed McGinn, who I suspect was a replacement in case Grealish went.
How some think they’ll both play in the same side intrigues me, given they’re apparently the same sort of player.
But apparently McGinn can stick the boot in and has a much better work rate, so who knows?
I don’t ever recall seeing him play.
Tuanzebe is a decent signing, I think.
Am I seeing correctly, in that Steer has gone on loan?
If so, where does that leave us goaly-wise?
Nyland, I assume starts.
I have serious doubts about our goal-keeping department, but hey, what do I know?
The truth is, I’m too tired to contemplate how we’re going to approach Wigan.
All I know is they’re going to be well up for it, after a good start.
And we will need to get in their faces from the off, with decent pace and sharp passing.
The same as is always required, I suppose.
I have to predict a 2-0 win here, simple.
I had so many questions to ask, but didn’t have the time to ask them.
So the poll asks where you think we’ll finish this season.
