From Bad to worse...
I drive to training first weekend of October and Tom Petty - Freefallin'
seems to be on every radio station I listen too.....
Tom ends up being right and I can't buy a win in October either!!
without a win rapidly turns to 9 ... then 10
Ionically, I have my best game V's top of the tree Man U
with some decent-ish stats.
game is the on that tips me over the edge as its:
My 100th game in charge
The Last game before a 50 day break for the 2022 World Cup
The first game after I get the backing of the board and escape a b*llocking in my monthly summary
I start well V Arsenal
aswell, get a goal in front.... then this happens...
JAMES, - BASTARD - MILNER - misses a penalty !!
This is how the form is going, mr dependable shanks it wide and Arsenal go on to condemn me to my 10th game without a win
- Which embarrassingly puts me in 19th
WHAT THE F*CK IS GOING ON
I keep a small eye on the World Cup, but with only two players there ( Maddison
missed out as he's been as awful as the rest of the squad lately )
I spend the 50 days trying to resurrect some confidence and ethic in my bewildered squad - I try and look deeper at the tactics and stats and where things are going wrong ! one player I don't need to worry about for a bit though, is Mr Eriksen
- F*ck my life, when will this bad run end
For those interested, the World Cup headlines are as follows. ..
Classic 00's England - don't get out of the group
Whilst this is going on, the players train well and I mix a few in with the Under 23's and play 3 games to boost morale.
I then go into a "relegation" game Vs Norwich ( Jesus - its 3rd season and I'm saying relegation... )
Im that shook by my form ( i mean in the last 5 premiership games we, ( or should I say Chris Wood
didn't even look like scoring) so I drop him for Edouard
- his stats are better and maybe the burden of the captaincy has took his eyes literally off the ball..
Anyway - on to Alan Partridges
team ... .and I escape with a 1-0
which after 50 days without a competitive game, and my form , I'll take !
Who is the saviour you ask ... ??? an Unlikely source ? Edouard
as hoped ...
Its my guy -
Played 22 minutes
Scored the winner
Sorry Chris ...
Anyway .... onto Rotheram in the cup.... potentially a good morale boosting victory and a good end to a bad 2 months !
Thanks for reading and the comments Gents !
