It's been a mixed start to the new year, winning games i wasn't expecting and losing games we should have got a point for. Starting January with the 4-0 victory over West Brom was the perfect way to begin the new year, and i really thought it was the start of a revival. But losing the next two without scoring a single goal saw us come crashing back down to earth. We should have got something from the Norwich game, we've beaten them before and we really should have done it again, but two goals on the break proved to be decisive. The win of the Season so far has to be the 4-2 victory over Chelsea, considering they have beaten us 3-0 and 2-0, winning 4-2 at the Amex was truly something. We end the month where we began, with a game against West Brom, only this team the baggies came away victorious, but underservadly. Carlton Cole's goal was massively offside, but the linesman deemed it to stand and that cost us three points.
I have to say, i have again be impressed by Simon Cox. His hat-trick against Chelsea was a dream performance, and he quite rightly got an Ireland call-up for it. No other players have been hugely impressive, although Paul Hawkins has been showing some promise, and he will be expected to start a few more games now.
The two wins at Wigan and Chelsea saw us rise up to 15, and there is where we occupy at the moment. It's not the best, but it will do to be going on with.
